Federation attacks
widening shoulders
along U.S. 1
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

State transportation officials
were met by a hostile crowd
when they came to Key Largo
Wednesday night to present a
plan to widen 14 miles of road
shoulder on U.S. 1.
About 70 people filled the
Key Largo Library to tell Florida
Department of Transportation
officials they believed the plan to
add the shoulder is really a back-
door effort to add a fifth north-
bound lane. FDOT officials insist
the project is to improve pave-


ment degradation and to provide
a safer area for drivers and emer-
gency workers to pull over.
The shoulder would only be
used as a lane during hurricane
evacuation, Aileen Boucle, an
FDOT project development and
environmental administrator, told
the audience.
"This is not a fifth lane, this is
a shoulder," she said. Boucle also
said the March 12 presentation
was meant for discussion only
and the project hasn't yet been
designed.
The cost is projected between
$21 and $22 million and could
begin by fall of 2009, said Brian
Rick, a spokesman for FDOT.

County attorney
seeks process to

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A flurry of ethics complaints
over the past month is driving
the county to establish better-
procedures for handling these
kinds of complaints.
County Commissioner Dixie
Spehar and former Planning


Commissioner Sherry Popham
both face investigation by the
Florida Commission on Ethics.
"Both complaints arise from
the working waterfront amend-
ments to the comprehensive
plan," said County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton. Those amend-
ments are currently being
reviewed by the state's Depart-
ment of Community Affairs.On

Board caps school

budget at $88M


6.3 percent cut
from projected
2007-08 spending
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board is working to reduce
spending as it braces for expected
cuts in state education funding.
Meeting on Tuesday, the
board voted 4-1 to cap the dis-


trict's 2008-2009 operating
budget at $88 million. That's $4
million less than the current $92
million budget, and about $6 mil-
lion less than what the district
will spend before the year is over.
The reduction was enough to
spark talks about slashing
administrative positions, includ-
ing reading coaches and curricu-
lum resource teachers.

the department tried to "sneak
by the public."
John Hammerstrom, a fed-
eration association director,
criticized. several aspects of
the plan, including the logic
behind using the shoulder as
an extra evacuation lane. He
said bottleneck jams would


happen because most of
Islamorada to the south is one
lane and the lack of a similar
shoulder or extra lane in
Florida City.
"You can't deliver cars any
faster [from Islamorada] and
you can't get them out any
faster [in Florida City],"
Hammerstrom said.
Hammerstrom, who gave
the Powerpoint presentation,
said the project would make
passing on the shoulder more
attractive to aggressive driv-
ers, and that FDOT argued this
exact point when designing
the 18-Mile Stretch project.
Boucle countered that the
configuration on the stretch,
which is one lane in either
direction, is significantly dif-
ferent from U.S. 1 in Key
Largo, which is two lanes in
both directions. Drivers are
less likely to try passing on
the shoulder when there are
two lanes, Boucle said.
"[The concern about pass-
ing on the shoulder] is not
appropriate to this project,"
Boucle said.

STORY / From 1

Board Chairman Steven
Pribramsky asked Superintendent
Randy Acevedo to recommend
the $88 million limit to the board,
but Acevedo refused, and instead
recommended that the board
reject it.
"I brought you a recommen-
dation earlier, and it was met with
grandstanding and not coopera-
tion, so no, I'm not going to rec-
ommend it," Acevedo said.
Acevedo had recommended
cutting travel spending by 50 per-
cent and reducing schools' dis-
cretionary budgets 15 percent for
the rest of the year to help offset
a recent $700,000 state cut.
The state has cut $1.5 million
from Keys public schools since
October.
The school board requested at
an earlier meeting that Acevedo
make the travel and discretionary
cuts, but on Tuesday, the propos-
al passed narrowly, with
Pribramsky and John Dick voting
against the cuts.
Pribramsky said the cuts,
which totaled $176,973, did not
go far enough.
Dick said he would rather see
a moratorium placed on travel
than cuts made to school discre-
tionary budgets.
Both said that if the board
agreed to a monetary limit for the
2008-2009 budget, they would
allow Acevedo to work within
that limit and would not "micro-
manage" the budget.
But Pribramsky said he has
strong feelings about what the
budget should include.
"My caveat is we've got to
give teachers a raise, and equal-
ize the health insurance benefit,"
Pribramsky said.
"If you're going to give us a
number, you can't have a caveat.
You're talking about a 10 percent
reduction, plus a raise, plus I still
have to meet state requirements."
Acevedo said.
Board member Andy Griffiths
voted against the limit, saying
that state requirements such as
smaller classroom sizes continue
to cost the school district more
money.
He suggested capping the
2008-2009 budget at $92 million,
the same amounted budgeted for
2007-2008.
"It's really not very realistic,"
Griffiths said of the cap. "I think
[keeping spending]', flat is


progress. Flat would in fact be
pretty dramatic."
The cap prompted talk about a
potential need to eliminate posi-
tions, including reading coaches
and curriculum resource teachers.
"We have 14 (curriculum
resource teachers) right now on
the books," board member Debra
Walker said "and they need to
know whether they'll have jobs or
not. It behooves us to make those
decisions as soon as possible."

Commerce President Jackie
Harder told the board that many
residents face financial hardships,
and could be forced to leave if
local municipalities don't signifi-

cantly reduce property taxes.
Daycare cost
The board did not adopt a pro-
posed rate increase for Pre-K,
after-school and daycare pro-
grams, despite a significant
deficit in those programs' budg-
ets at Key Largo School.
Key Largo School Principal
Annette Martinson said that her
programs run at a deficit because
Key Largo School is one of only
two Keys public schools to pro-
vide daycare for children of
school faculty.
The other, Coral Shores High
School, is barely breaking even.
She said daycare programs are
more expensive to operate than
other programs, because the state
requires a certified program
director for each daycare site.
Other school daycare pro-
grams currently run without a
deficit, but Martinson told the
board that all daycare programs
will "run in the red" next year if
the rates parents pay are not
increased.
The issue will be up for dis-
cussion at a March 19 school dis-
trict planning' meeting.

Revamped Big


Pine plan is back


Skeeter's owner
seeks OK for 16
affordable units
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Big Pine Key landowner
Richard Beal has been talking for
months about building an afford-
able housing complex on his
property at Skeeter's Marine on
U.S. 1. Next week he might get a
preliminary nod from the County
Commission.
The- commission convenes
Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
On the agenda is a proposal to
grant Beal 16 affordable housing
allocations.
In September, the commission
voted to refund nearly $8,000
that Beal paid in development
application fees when his initial
proposal for 28 affordable units
went nowhere.
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette said the proposed
Caya Place didn't have enough
mitigation proposed for the project.
Even if the commission grants
the allocations on Wednesday,
Beal may still face an uphill battle.
"The project also faces out-
standing and unresolved mitiga-
tion issues," wrote Affordable
Housing Coordinator Lisa
Tennyson in the staff memo for
the agenda item. "This [housing
allocation], if approved, does not
absolve him from complying with
the mitigation requirements."
Environmental mitigation on
Big Pine is also the subject of a
special workshop starting at 6:30
p.m. Monday at the Marathon
Government Center.
Growth on Big Pine is severely
limited because of the island's
endangered species, especially
Key deer. The island's habitat con-
servation plan only allows 200
new homes over the next 20 years.
Also on tap for Wednesday:
a $225,000 settlement on a
worker's comp claim. The 1991
claim from a former employee of
the Sheriff's Office is covered by
insurance, so it will not cost the
taxpayers, according to county
staff.
Approval of a grant that
helps low income residents pay


their electric bills. The $109,000
grant is funded by the state
Department of Community
Affairs, and requires no matching
county funds.
Approval to purchase a half
million dollars worth of
Motorola radios for use by first
responders in an emergency. The
county will only pay $70,000 of
the bill, the rest is funded by a
Florida emergency management
grant.
Approval to put out a
request for proposals to seek a
lessee for a hangar at the Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
According to staff, the county
can raise close to $8,000 a month
by renting out the hangar.
Approval to extend the con-
tract of Land Authority Director
Mark Rosch for three years, until
2011. This position is funded
through tourist impact taxes.
A closed session to discuss
the October dismissal of former
County Budget Director Sal
Zappulla. He was suspended in
August and terminated in
October for insubordination.
Zappulla is challenging the deci-
sion by former County
Administrator Tom Willi.
Approval of Sheriff Rick
Roth's appointment of former
County Commissioner David
Rice to the Sheriff's Shared
Asset Forfeiture Fund Board.
A resolution, proposed by
Commissioner Dixie Spehar,
exploring the creation of a moor-
ing field at the Boca Chica
Harbor, just off the Key Haven
boat ramp.
Three appointments to the
county's Marine and Port
Advisory Committee: Bill Moore
would replace the resigned Ben
lanotta, and Pat Wells and F. Paul
Koisch would be reappointed.
Approval to destroy County
Commission records from 1985
through 1998. Agendas and their
backup materials have been
recorded for posterity.
A public hearing to ratify a
set of three federal grant totaling
nearly $283,000 that would
allow the county to purchase two
new buses for the county transit
service. It .would also provide
funding to upgrade the dispatch
system.

Latest gas price survey

raises more questions

A wire story reporting on American Automobile Association
gas price surveys found Fort Lauderdale atop the list of Florida
cities with most-expensive gas pumps.
Well, we're not sure the AAA does any surveying in the
Keys. But, if they did, they would surely find prices here are
just as high.
And, while that's not much of a surprise, it comes with this
added caveat.
Fort Lauderdale happens to be the terminus for ocean-going
oil tankers in this part of the state. Tampa and Jacksonville are
the other biggies.
Wouldn't you sort of guess that gas prices at stations closest
to port terminals and those giant storage tanks would have the
cheapest wholesale prices?
After all, one of the reasons always cited for higher gasoline
in the Keys is simply the cost of trucking it here from Fort
Lauderdale.
And, yet, we're struck by the price disparity even within
Monroe County.
Just about everyone local knows the two gas stations in
Plantation Key that vie for lowest price champ, regardless of
what's happening at sister stations and competitors up and
down the roadway.
Similarly, one station on Big Pine has commanded quite a
share of gas sales simply because they price their fuel three to
four-cents lower (or more) than nearby competitors.
The cost of operating gas stations, which includes real estate
taxes, wages, benefits (for those employees lucky enough to
work for larger companies offering benefits) is a legitimate rea-
son for prices to reflect the higher cost of doing business.
But, when you see such disparity in pricing with stations across
the street from each other, it makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Dead on arrival

Speaking of high gas prices, we suspect the discussion com-
ing about tacking on additional local option gas taxes will stir
some reaction.
Last month, the vote was 4-1 against County Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy's proposal to hold public hearings on two sep-
arate gas tax hikes that would raise local dollars used for road
and bridge maintenance and repairs.
But, at Wednesday's county commission meeting, they will
consider a request from County Attorney Suzanne Hutton to
advertise two ordinances that would allow the county to
increase those local option gas taxes.
We think the commissioners already know how the public
will react. This is one tax hike that should be dead on arrival.

Humans cause far more harm than Keys chickens


EDITOR:
In his letter to the editor, Assistant Key West
City Manager John Jones did a fine job with his
chicken math. Maybe he should start working
on the amount of droppings that comes from the
various gulls, terns, pelicans and other seabirds
in the area.
The concentration of the birds around the
beach and dock areas is far from natural and has
come about due to human development. Add to
this the environmental load caused by the fertil-
izers put down to keep all the exotic plants
growing (most of the plants on the island are far
from native), plus the results of the decomposi-
tion of the same plant matter.
The fact is the environmental footprint of the
Key West chicken population is tiny compared
to the most exotic species on the island -
humans both resident and tourist.
The stated fear of avian flu is but a smoke
screen because if the flu does make the jump to
human-to-humard transmission (the step required
to make the pandemic fear come true), it won't
be birds you need to worry about but the tourists
flying in from all over the world. Does Mr.
Jones have a plan to keep them off the island
too?


I can understand if he doesn't like chickens
running around town, but he shouldn't dress up
his distaste for the feathered foes in pseudo sci-
ence or deep concerns about the environment
while continuing to fill the island with more peo-
ple.
Don't blame the beaches [with advisories
against swimming] on chicken droppings when
cesspits, shallow injection wells, septic tanks
and boats without holding tanks are still around.
All the raw waste pumped into shallow wells
starting back in the 1950s might not be magical-
ly cleaned prior to moving to join the sea.
Up and down the coast, the beaches have had
the same problem of fecal coliform findings
(maybe not as often as Higgs Beach) and the
only chickens around are the same old politi-
.cians looking for something to blame other than
our own mismanagement of the environment
over the years.
Hate the chickens or love them, but to find
the real reason for the [health advisories against
swimming at the beaches], look to the most
exotic animal on the island.

As a longtime concerned former resident

had a really wonderful time. But driving to

ugly eyesore than needs to be addressed. This
eyesore is at mile marker 59 on Grassy Key.
There is a massive amount of tree debris
and other garbage along the road oceanside,
left behind (I was informed) from Hurricane
Wilma. Residents and tourists alike, I am
sure, would like to see a clear, unblemished
view of our beautiful ocean at this location.

Pophams should lead by example


EDITOR:
Recently Sherry Popham resigned
in protest from the Monroe County
Planning Commission because of the
County Commission's removal of
"public access" and "no netloss"
provisions in the working-waterfront
changes to our land-use regulations.
Mrs. Popham and her husband,
owners of a working-waterfront
property in Marathon, now find
themselves in the unique and envi-
able position of being able to lead by
example. Might I suggest that they,
by irrevocable deed restrictions,
place the public access and "no net
loss" provisions on their own proper-
ty in Marathon, thus demonstrating
their commitment and the true depth
of their advocacy?
Doing to themselves what they
would do to others might remove the
blinders from those other property
owners who claim that their property
would be harmed by these restric-
tions that they have proposed.
Considering the Pophams' advocacy


for saving the fishing and other
marine activities on the waterfront by
legislating away others' property
rights, how could they not take this
opportunity to show us all how sin-
cere they are?
It has been revealed recently that
while they were acting as vocal
advocates of saving the working
waterfront, they were covertly nego-
tiating to sell their waterfront indus-
trial marine site to Cay Clubs. They
were in effect saying to the other
owners, Do as I say, not as I do, all
the while attempting to cash out and
trying to cover it up from their
employees and the public.
It seems that they. have been
revealed as more than slightly shifty.
Perhaps their unconditional and
uncompensated deed restricting of
their own property might be their
penance for their deception to the
public and her fellow Planning
Commission members.

Doors are slammed on waterfront access


EDITOR:
On the issue of preserving access
to the waterfront, there are those who
would have me (some by means of
persuasion, others by way of personal
attack) recant my mantra of no net
loss. I will not and set forth my rea-
soning as an appeal to every individ-
ual and governmental entity capable
of making a local difference in this
global issue.
Monroe County's working-water-
front moratorium was planned to pro-
tect 100 percent of our recreational
and commercial access while vital
decisions were made on how to
achieve this objective long term. Its
implementation by the County
Commission essentially created a
period of no net loss. Nonetheless, in
the face of this prohibition, fortified
with data and analysis addressing its
inapplicability, one of the Keys'
largest and most historic working
facilities was approved for conver-
sion. Slam the gates of waterfront
access forever.
Logic dictates we gain insights
from this real-life demonstration; if,
absent the conviction of our leader-
ship, even a policy of no net loss is
not strong enough to stop the degra-
dation of this important resource, then
what possible merits could there be to
accepting less-convincing language
while we have already lost more than
half of our existing access?
Careless condemnation of individ-
uals in lieu of careful contemplation
of the issues accompanied by dia-
tribes about property rights and tear-


ful, albeit premature, eulogies for the
demise of commercial fishing are
misleading and unjustifiable. Wise
land stewardship requires that conver-
sions of property be approved based
on what is best for the community.
Otherwise, no one is owed a change
of use.
Compensation, via the granting of
the significant economic incentives of
expanded development rights, other-
wise unavailable to owners, must be
balanced with equitable support of the
policy of preservation for the public
purpose. This is the key to success in
c. rafting a win-win scenario.
The juxtaposition of public facili-
ties such as restaurants, lodging and
dockage alongside the conduct of his-
torical waterfront activities is a tem-
plate for successful preservation
efforts in, proactive coastal communi-
ties from San Francisco to Newport.
It can be done and we were close.
Preservation of what little recre-
ational and commercial access
remains is crucial to our collective
economic and cultural well-being.
Adoption of the strongest language of
preservation possible is critical given
this late date and the reality that our
best hope is simply to stem the tide of
the gentrification of our waterfront.
Sherry Popham
Marathon

Editor's note: The state
Department of Community Affairs is
reviewing the county's waterfront-
preservation ordinance for possible
approval.

Geotis deserves to be boosted


EDITOR:
I am requesting the Marathon City

finding the new city manager. It is so
apparent that we have the man right
under your collective noses. He is C.J.
Geotis, who has been the assistant city
manager.
Everyone that knows him and with
whom he works has nothing but the
highest praise for him and the efforts
that he puts forth on behalf of


Marathon. At the least, appoint him
interim manager now, which will give
the council firsthand knowledge of how
he would do this very important job.
If the council does this, it would be
saving'itself and all of us much bucks
and, more importantly, the time it will
take to diddle this around when the
council could be working on some more
important issues.

Burnett is natural for manager post


EDITOR:
Your March 8 edition printed a letter
questioning the qualifications and agen-
da of Clyde Burnett in regards to the
Marathon city manager's job. Clyde
was one of the best mayors we have
ever had in Key Colony Beach. He suc-
cessfully applied for grants, completed
many projects and still maintained low
taxes. Yes, he had help with his job and
I recognize the contribution made by all
our commissioners.


Basically Clyde served as our city
manager for a very low salary. He
knows Monroe County, has excellent
people skills and has no agenda. He is
also a man of integrity. I am a 20-year
permanent resident of Key Colony
Beach and I think our loss will be
Marathon's gain if they are smart
enough to hire Mr. Burnett.

Trading bug bit hard


Coffee shop
owner aims for
a vintage BMW
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Coffee Plantation owner
Theo Glorie envisions himself
zooming through the streets of
Key West on a sparkling 1975
BMW R90S motorcycle.
There's a minor roadblock to
Glorie's dream: he doesn't want
to pay for it. But that's not stop-
ping him. Instead of surrender-
ing about $10,000, he's using
his bartering skills without
spending a dime.
"Everyone has something to
trade," Glorie said in a Dutch
accent. "It's a fun thing to do.
I've been in trade basically my
whole life-just not like this."
Through a series of trades,
Kyle MacDonald, a Montrealer,
started with a red paper clip and
ended up with a house July 2006
- a tale oft told on the internet.
Though Glorie can't take credit
for the trading idea, he was
inspired by MacDonald's story


and started swapping goods in
Key West more than a year ago.
But while MacDonald relied
on posting items on Craigslist,
Glorie relies solely on bartering
with fellow Key Westers.
He borrowed MacDonald's
paper clip idea, trading one for a
bouncy ball courtesy of Key
Wester Mike Mongo. That trade
led to a necklace, which was
traded for bottles of vintage
wine, that were exchanged for a
funky acoustic guitar from artist
Captain Outrages, or Norman
Taylor, who passed away
February 2007.
The guitar led to a fountain
created by a local artist, and,
finally, a coin from Shawn
Cowles of Mel Fisher's
Treasures valued at $3,100.
Glorie is mulling over trading
the coin for a three-hour wed-
ding sailing trip for 40 passen-
gers.
"When you leave the mone-
tary thing out of it, it becomes a-
lot more wholesome," Cowles
said. "Working as a diver for
Mel for years, I was paid in
treasure," which he uses to trade


for renovating his home, he said.
But the vision of motorcycle
remains, and won't dissipate
until Glorie possesses an object
he can exchange for $10,000 to
make the purchase on
eBay.com.
Why the bike? "At one point,
you have to set your mind to
something," Glorie said. Along
walls of his cafE, paintings and
models of the orange and
chrome motorcycle decorate the
walls. Glorie wears a massive
grin while he plays the sound of
the bike's engine roaring
through speakers in his coffee
shop.
He rejects his fair share of
trade offers. For example, one
cafE visitor offered him a jeep.
Glorie was excited until one
detail was revealed: the vehicle
still had 57 unfulfilled pay-
ments. That's a violation of his
No. 1 rule no financial burden.
He takes photos of all his failed
deals and files them in a "rejec-
tion folder."
Glorie, 48, says he's not
working toward a deadline. He
enjoys taking his time to find the
perfect deals with the perfect
people. His wheeling and deal-

for a trade deal.


ings have been slowed by his
effort in spearheading the
Schooner Western Union
restoration project.
According to Glorie, trading
up to the bike means he would
actually use it. But if he paid
$10,000 for it, he -adds, he
would be afraid to take it out.
As a well-known member of
the island community, bartering
is a simple task for Glorie.
Outside his motorcycle hunt, he
traded a paper clip for a bottle of


whiskey, and then swapped the
booze for a large decorative par-
rot that sits on the shop's count-
er. He even bartered for the new
camera he uses to take photo-
graphs of his trades.
Glorie moved from the
Netherlands to Southern
California 20 years ago. He
moved to Key West four years
ago. You can follow his barter-
ing saga at http://www.quest-

Snake alert: road warriors on a mission


57 volunteers
begin program.
for snake patrol
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Unwanted snakes, beware -
Python Patrol volunteers have
their eyes out for you.
"We don't want anybody to try
to be a hero and grab one," said
Alison Higgins, a program organ-
izer with The Nature
Conservancy. "Just report it."
A Jan. 24 training session held
at the Marathon Government
Center taught 57 people to recog-
nize invasive-exotic snakes like
Burmese pythons or boa constric-
tors, and where to report them.
The first wave of trainees were
"road warriors," people who
spend much of their workday
driving local roads, Higgins said.
They include utility crews, postal
workers and law officers.
"They're out there every day,"
Higgins said. "They see a lot."
Cold-blooded pythons have a
fondness for sunning themselves
on warm pavement, she noted.
Higgins, active with the
Florida Keys Invasive Task Force
for the last six years, knows the
problems that exotic plant and
animal species can cause in the
hospitable Keys environment,


home to many threatened and
endangered species.
The endangered Key Largo
woodrat is vulnerable to pythons
introduced to the protected-
acreage in the Crocodile Lake
National Wildlife Refuge.
Whether the pythons swam from
breeding colonies in the southern
Everglades ot were abandoned
pets, they are there.
Several pythons have been
captured, one because it swal-
lowed a woodrat wearing a radio-
tracking collar. All the pythons
were killed so researchers can
learn what the non-endangered
snakes are eating.
Robert Ehrig told the
Keynoter he has captured a dozen
large pythons or boa constrictors
in the Lower Keys over the last
20 years. All almost certainly
were pets that were freed or
escaped, he said.
"For the same reasons we try
to protect our natural areas from
invasive plants, we need to pro-
tect them from certain exotic
invasive animals," Higgins said..
"In some cases, the animals cause
more problems."
Plants don't eat pets, she.
noted.
The Python Patrol plans to
continue training watchers, and
will work to create a "responder"
designation.
"We definitely do not want

Volunteers have have been recruited to watch for non-native

6-inch snake held by federal researcher Dan Greene.


people to try to kill what they
think is an invasive snake,"
Higgins said. "We're trying to
avoid misidentification of a
native species.
The Python Patrol has created
a toll-free hotline: (888) 483-
4681. Spelled out, it says "I-
GOT-1 ."
Pythons are not considered a
significant threat to humans, The
Nature Conservancy notes, "but
are voracious and indiscriminate
eaters."

Southernmost House settlement on table


Proposal would
allow expanded
guesthouse
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission will address a proposed
settlement agreement with South-
ernmost House owner Matilde
Ramos that would drop three law-
suits against the city, allow Ramos
to open another, smaller guest-
house and quash her request to
convert the Southernmost House


into a 150-seat restaurant.
Ramos' 1400 Duval St. property
would be free to operate as a 14-
unit guesthouse, as the settlement
stipulates that the city must provide
all appropriate permits, licenses
and certificates of occupancy.
Ramos also owns a private
home across the street, 1401
Duval. The settlement would
allow the house to operate as a
five-unit guesthouse.
The issue of converting the
house into a restaurant has played
out in Key West Planning Board
meetings since August. Neighbors

have expressed opposition to the
proposal, saying an eatery could
increase noise and traffic and
adversely affect their quality of life.
"I have a problem with the
restaurant," City Commissioner
Barry Gibson said.
Ramos has filed four lawsuits
"against the city, with the help of
attorney Michael Halpern, who
declined to comment. The law-
suits argued that a development
regulation system didn't exist and
that Ramos was entitled to run her
guesthouse. Those suits were filed
beginning in July 2001; the most
recent was filed Nov. 2, 2007.
The 2001 lawsuit was dis-
missed, and the agreement, if
passed by the commission, would
kill the others.
Commissioners will decide
when they meet at 6 p.m.
Tuesday in Old City Hall, 510
Greene St., following a closed
session earlier that afternoon.
The city scheduled the item
for that date because March 21 is
the deadline to appeal a Feb. 21
Monroe County Circuit Court
decision by Judge Wayne Miller
that ruled rate-of-growth-ordi-
nance allocations expired in
2002. Those allocations deter-


mine how many building permits
are issued, according to hurricane
evacuation timeliness.
That court decision effectively
means that Ramos doesn't have
to buy ROGO allocations in order
to purchase transient rental
licenses for her guesthouse, and
the settlement would give her all
of the paperwork needed for
those 14 units.
Reacting to Miller's decision,
the commission, at a special Feb.
29 meeting, issued a moratorium
on market rate development for
the next six months, with the
exception of workforce housing
projects. Within that time frame,
the city plans to draft an ordi-
nance regulating any future
developments to adhere to a hur-


ricane evacuation standard.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
said that even though there's a
decision made for one of the law-
suits, it could be nullified with a
settlement.
"Rather than go through a
lengthy appeal process where the
judgment could be upheld,
reversed or modified, the parties
can simply reach a settlement and
ask that the judgment itself be
removed and replaced with a set-
tlement agreement," Smith said.
To some officials, the prospect
of settling beats appealing the
decision.
"I'm tired of appealing
Thingss" Gibson said. "Lets get
this done, and move on."

The Monroe County Com-

come up with a short list of pos-

county administrator.
The meeting begins at 10 a.m.
at the Marathon Government

Each of the five county com-
missioners has been asked to
bring their top 10 choices to the
meeting, says acting County
Administrator Debbie Frederick.
At the Feb. 20 meeting in Key

Despite rain, we're

still short on water


Latest projections
see two-year
recovery window
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.comr

A wet February barely made
a dent in South Florida's ongo-
ing drought, South Florida
Water Management District
officials said Wednesday.
"It will take a while to get
back to normal," said district
Executive Director Carol Ann
Wehle at a press conference at
district headquarters in Palm
Beach County.
"This is a long, slow, sim-
mering situation," Wehle said.
"A few weeks of rainfall is not
enough to restore the impact of
the cumulative rainfall deficit
over the last couple years. We
heed feet [of rainfall], not
inches.
"It may take two rainy sea-
sons to bring Lake Okeechobee
back to normal conditions,"
she said.
South Florida now enters
what historically are the driest
eight weeks of the year in
South Florida, deputy execu-
tive director Chip Merriam and
Wehle said.
In the wake of recent rains,
Palm Beach County officials
last week urged the district to
consider lifting the once-a-
week limit on lawn and land-
scape watering now in place
throughout Southeast Florida,
including Monroe County.
"It's too soon," Merriam
responded.
February saw a district wide
average rainfall of 2.99 inches,
about three-quarters of an inch
more than the normal February.
That does not erase the


recent below-average rainfall
in the wettest summer months,
which came in several inches
below normal.
The years 2006 and 2007
were the driest in South
Florida since record-keeping
started in 1932, Wehle remind-
ed.
Wehle said the problem
extends far beyond low water
levels at Lake Okeechobee -
the region's largest source of
back-up water but often
cited the Okeechobee levels as
an indicator.
The lake has come up from


The average

its all-time lows from last year
but the average depth of 10 feet
(as measured at fixed stations)
remains about four feet below
normal.
"Ten [feet] is not a good
number," Wehle said. "It's still
very low for this time of year."
Every day for the last nine
months has been the lowest
level ever recorded on that
date, Wehle said.

Council: Move forward on sewers city wide


Vasil says meeting
with key lawmaker
proved convincing
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

With solid figures in place
regarding costs to individual
homeowners, Marathon City
Council unanimously passed a
resolution affirming their com-
mitment to complete the city's
wastewater project.
Tuesday's resolution directs
staff, City Attorney Jimmy
Morales and city engineers to
proceed with "contractual and
regulatory" actions necessary
to complete all seven service
areas of the project.
Council has for months
been working toward estab-
lishing a methodology by
which assessments will be
charged. On March 4, the
Council voted in favor of a
plan almost identical to the one
proposed by Councilman Mike
Cinque at a Jan. 9 meeting.
Provisions of the assess-
ment plan include: assuming
no additional grant funding,
allocating $11.5. million to be
recovered through monthly
operations and maintenance
charges and a 15 percent con-
tribution from the city's capital
infrastructure fund. Any grant
money Marathon does receive
will go toward reducing resi-
dents' future monthly charges.
Marathon did receive $1
million in grant money last
week from the Army Corps of
Engineers, meaning $10.5 mil-
lion of the project's estimated
$85.7 million cost will now
need to be recovered through
monthly charges.
Frontloading operations and
maintenance was the main
sticking point for at the
Council's March 4 meeting.
The vote passed 3-2, with
Mayor Pete Worthington and
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest dissenting.
"I am still opposed to it and
hopefully we can get some
grant money. I just don't know
where we're going to go if we
run into cost overruns,"
Worthington said. "You have
to leave yourself some backup
plan, like with any business. In
addition, by not counting any
additional grant money are we


sending a message to
Tallahassee and Washington
[D.C.] that we're moving on?"
Councilman Don Vasil, who
has long been against moving
forward without funding in
place, said a recent sit-down
with State Rep. Stan Mayfield
changed his view.
"After our discussions, I
feel strongly that he is sympa-
thetic to the concerns of the
Keys and is trying to move for-
ward to get funding. The mood
in Tallahassee is that this is
still a local issue and should
still be resolved by the local
stakeholders," he said.
Vasil-said his perception is
that the state mandated date of
July 1, 2010 to complete sew-
ers will still be in place, which
led him to change gears and
-vote in favor of moving for-
ward.
"If we continue to hold out,
we run the risk of some severe
ramifications in 2010," he
said. "If we don't get started
immediately, we have no
chance in getting this near
completion prior to that date."
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
the vote to move forward was
the right thing to do after
establishing solid costs to the
residents.
"I think everyone knows

this is the right thing for our
community and our nearshore
waters and we'll still be fight-
ing the fight to find funding,
which we think we deserve,"
Bull said.
At the March 4 meeting,
council heard a proposal from
a Bear Sterns investment bank
representative regarding a pub-
lic-private partnership to run
the city's wastewater utility. It
received a tepid response from


council.
Cinque says the city can
provide its own financing and
at a better rate than Bear
Stearns.
"It wasn't that we can't
come up with the money,
we've got the state revolving
fund. It's been that council
didn't want to move forward
without the 40 percent" fund-
ing from the state, Cinque said.
Vasil said the city owes it to


its residents to operate the sys-
tem in the most cost-effective
manner.
"I think there's some desire
on the part of staff to consider
doing our own operations and
maintenance. After seeing
what's going on in other com-
munities...I'm inclined to get
the best deal from a profes-
sional "wastewater firm," he
said.

-Acting County Admin-
istrator Debbie Frederick says
she's looking to the County
Commission for direction in
replacing Fire Chief Wayne
Hinnant, who resigned
Tuesday.
"I'll be asking the commis-
sion Wednesday how they
wish to proceed," she said.
The commission meets in
regular session at the
Marathon Government Center
beginning at 9 a.m.
Hinnant resigned Tuesday,
the day following his first job
review since he was hired
Aug. 15.
The resignation was "... due
to an ongoing illness in my
family," he wrote. "The
responsibilities of my current
positions do not allow me to
provide sufficient time and
support to my family during
this difficult period."
In that letter, Hinnant wrote
that he would remain working
for the county until June 1. The
next day, however, he issued a
second letter stating that his
resignation would be effective


30 days from March 11.
Frederick put Hinnant on
administrative leave Wednes-
day, so even though his con-
tract requires 30 days' notice,
Hinnant will no longer be
heading up the county's fire
and emergency services.
"In the interim," Frederick
wrote in a memo to county
staff and the commissioners,
"Reggie Paros will be the act-
ing division director of emer-
gency services and Jim
Callahan will be the acting
fire chief."
The role is nothing new to
Callahan, who acted as chief
for over a year, filling in for
the ailing Clark Martin Jr.
Hinnant steps down at a
vital time for the department.
The county is exploring a pos-
sible fire assessment that, if
enacted, would raise close to
$6 million annually to pay for
upkeep on equipment and sta-
tions as well as provide rev-
enue to purchase new equip-
ment.
Hinnant has been unavail-
able for comment.

to allow boat trailer and vehi-
cle parking at Stanley Switlik

ends and during summer break.
The resolution states those
spots, adjacent to the city's
33rd Street boat ramp, would
be ideal for use by recreational
boaters. There is a shortage of
parking for the ramp, the reso-
lution states.
Recognized the five-year
anniversaries of several
employees: City Manager
Mike Puto, Community
Services Director Susie
Thomas, firefighter James
Malmquist, bridgetender

Rate hike hearing delayed


KW Resorts
sought OK for
60 percent hike
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The private sewer provider
on Stock Island won a tempo-
rary continuance for its rate
hike hearing, the second such
extension granted by the
Florida Public Service
Commission.
The owners of KW Resort
Utilities are negotiating with
New Stock Island Properties,
Inc., a group of developers
who are looking to create a
new waterfront on the island
with hotels, retail outlets,
marinas and some residential
units all connected by a
boardwalk.
If.the utility sells the land
to the developers, the sewer
plant would have to go some-.
where, and that brings the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority into the negotia-
tions. FKAA Executive


Director Jim Reynolds says
that the plan would mean the
effluent would need to be
piped to a new plant that
FKAA has under construction
on Big Coppitt.
"How to pay for that is the
problem," he said. "But we're
still in the mix."
Aqueduct officials say the
move could be a positive one
for all Lower Keys residents,
if they can negotiate a reason-
able price for the infrastruc-
ture. More households
hooked up to one plant pro-
vide an economy of scale that
could mean lower monthly
bills for residents, Reynolds
said.
On Feb. 28, the Public
Service Commission granted
the continuation of an emer-
gency stay on the rate hear-
ing, giving the utility until
April 7 to file a status report
regarding on-going negotia-
tions.
KW Resort Utilities filed a
rate increase request with the
oversight commission in


September, looking to
increase rates by nearly 60
percent in order to pay for
plant upgrades and for the
expense of covering house-
holds on south Stock Island
that have not yet hooked up to
the newly expanded sewer
system.
Results of an audit
released in November might
end up lowering that pro-
posed rate increase; however.
There's a good chance the
commission will end up
rejecting a number of the util-
ity's expenses that were listed
as proof that the company
needed to increase its month-
ly rate.
Personal travel expenses,
cell phones and political
donations were all expense
the auditors said should not
contribute to the company's
bottom line and thus the rate
determination.
The average monthly bill
for KW Resort customers is
about $40. The increase could
drive that bill to more than
$60 a month.


City eyes higher bus

fares, real-time info


City fares would
rise to $2
per ticket
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West Department
of Transportation is proposing
an increase in bus fares to off-
set rising fuel costs and the
purchase of a real-time passen-
ger information system.
The system, which would be
purchased with $230,000 of a
Federal Transit Administration
grant, would allow riders to
call a number or pull up a Web
page and see where their bus is
and when it will arrive at the
bus stop.
The Key West City
Commission will review the
bid with Syncromatics Corp.
during Tuesday's 6 p.m. meet-
ing at Old City Hall, and will
address two items that would
increase bus fare for Key West
and Lower Keys routes "to off-
set rising fuel cost," said Myra
Wittenberg, the city's trans-
portation director.
The city uses a blend of 20
percent biodiesel and 80 per-
cent conventional diesel,
known as B20, for its buses.
For city bus routes, the fare
would increase from $1 to $2
per ride, while the seven-day
pass would go from $6.25 to
$8. Fares for students and sen-
ior citizens would increase
from 50 cents per trip to $1,


and from $3.75 for a week's
trips to $5.
For Lower Keys routes, the
cost of one ride will go from $2
to $3, while seven days' worth
of trips would jump from
$12.50 to $16. Reduced fare
would increase from $1 to
$1.50 per trip, while the seven-
day ticket would rise from
$7.50 to $10.
The monthly fares would
remain the same.
The real time tracking tech-
nology of Syncromatics one
of the three bidders who
replied to the department's
request for proposals would
provide the bus systems'
500,000 riders a year a more
efficient means of obtaining
passenger counts and arrival
times, Wittenberg said.
Syncromatics was started in
California in 2006 and uses
Google Maps, cellular net-
works and the Global
Positioning System. The
department installed GPS in
each bus in April, but this new
technology would enhance the
system.
The University of Miami
uses the technology for its stu-
dents on campus, Wittenberg
said.
In 2004,, the department
received a $983,679 grant from
FTA for purchasing the GPS
and real-time systems, and to
buy two new buses which
cost about $300,000 each.

A proposal to develop 20-
market rate, two bedroom town-
houses on a vacant Simonton
Street parking lot in Key West
has already endured opposition
from workforce housing advo-
cates who say property owner
Richard Jones should include an
affordable housing component in
his plans.
"It's got to have the afford-
able component or it's a no-go
for me," City Commissioner
Mark Rossi said. "I'm not afraid
of a lawsuit."
The city commission will
hear the matter at Tuesday's
meeting which starts at 6 p.m.
An email addressed to the
Key West City Commission
from Community Housing
Committee Chairman Omar
Garcia, also- expresses the need
for affordable housing.
Garcia says city ordinances
clearly state that it's "the com-
mission's judgment to effectuate
and carry out the spirit and pur-
pose of the comprehensive plan
and land development regula-
tions." Garcia told the Keynoter
he believes this commission is
genuinely concerned with the
housing crisis and will deny the
plans.
Any new development in Key
West must designate 30 percent
of proposed units to affordable
housing.
The mandate isn't effective
yet for redevelopment projects.
Since August, the housing com-
mittee has been pushing an ordi-
nance that requires any project
with more than four units to con-
struct 30 percent affordable units
on site, off site, or contribute
$200,000 per would-be unit to
the city's affordable housing trust
fund.
Jones, who owns a construc-
tion company in Delray Beach,
had to purchase 30 transient rate-
of-growth-ordinance allocations,
or ROGO allocations, to equal 20
permanent housing allocations,
project manager Owen Trepanier
said.
Because the allocations are
on-site, the project is considered
redevelopment.
"It meets all of the codes,"
Trepanier said. "In fact, it does-
n't even bump up against any of
the maximum development
potentials. We've had a lot of
discussions on affordable hous-


ing, but is the law is the law."
Trepanier also said that it
took Jones three years to collect
all of the- necessary allocations,
and that a required affordable
housing component was never
mentioned by anyone. It doesn't
make sense for the city to
retroactively make demands, he
said.
"Maybe [Jones'] attorney and


his adviser should have advised
him of that," Garcia said.
On Friday, Jones said: "We
spent 120 days studying this
project. I'm not. just going to
come into the city as developer
and take, take, take."
As for what the housing com-
mittee is proposing. "We just
don't have the funds available to
do that," Jones said. "I think we
can make it s a beautiful little
community within, the communi-


ty."
According to Trepanier, the
property would have cost Jones
less if a workforce-housing com-
ponent were required. Property
purchased for market rate devel-
opment is more expensive.
The lot, a former lumberyard,
at 119-135 Simonton St. has an
area of 52,385 square feet and
sold for $10 million last year.
Those documents show that
an estimated "sale price between


$800,000 and ,$1.5 million"
would provide $7,500 to
$13,800 of annual property tax
revenue.
Planning Board Member
Barry Barroso Jr. was the only
dissenting vote at the Jan. 17
meeting, when the proposal
passed.
"I look forward to hearing
their argument," Commissioner
Barry Gibson said. "It's going to
be very difficult."

Choice for deputy city manager nears


Scholl says he's
ready to name
No. 2 on Tuesday
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @ keynoter.com

The list of candidates vying
for the position of Assistant City
Manager was cut to six top qual-
ifiers last week, providing for a
tough decision, city officials
said. But the decision's been
made, and City Manager Jim
Scholl will announce Assistant
City Manager John Jones' suc-
cessor at Tuesday's Key West
City Commission meeting.
Scholl declined to reveal his


selection, saying he wants to
make a formal announcement
Tuesday.
"There was a whole, wide list
of qualified people in there,"
Jones said.
All six of the finalists are Key
West residents, according to a
document from the Human
Resources Department.
Scholl and staff reviewed 40
resumes and whittled the appli-
cations down to the remaining
candidates:
+ Mark Finigan, Director of
Operations for Cortex Resort
Living, submitted his resume on
Feb. 19 cut-off day. Finigan
was the city's budget director


from 1989-1997, and earned a
Masters in Business Admin-
istration from Valdosta State
University.
City Engineer Roland
Flowers, who makes $88,907.94
annually, has worked in the city
Engineering Department for 23
years.
Ron Herron, who in the
past has been executive director
of AIDS Help Inc. and was assis-
tant city manager from 1989 to
1994, before Jones.
+ Another Keys resident who
made the cut: Mortgage broker
and former Monroe County
School Board member Patrick
Labrada. He's been in the mort-
gage loan business for more than
30 years.

in January, citing physical mal-


adies throughout his tenure such
as four-way heart bypass sur-

Tukey steps down

from TAMPOA


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Tom Tukey is stepping down
as the President of the Truman
Annex Master Property Owners
Association after serving eight
years as the Key West entity's
leader.
TAMPOA attorney Bill
Anderson said the association's
president is an entirely volunteer
position, and that Tukey has
served the position well in his
eight year tenure.
"He has told folks some time
that he didn't want to run for re-
election," Anderson said. "He
wanted to make sure he was there
while the litigation is going on."
The Key West City Com-
mission OK'd a settlement
March 4 with TAMPOA, allow-


ing public access to the Truman
Waterfront's Southard Street
entrance from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m,
and allowing only visitors,
employees, and community resi-
dents through the street's
entrance during the night.
Anderson said he hopes for
"healing in the community, par-
ticularly between the Truman
Annex and Bahama Village," in
the wake of the agreement.
Bahama Village residents
expressed ongoing tension with
that community and opposition to
the agreement at the commission
meeting.
"It wasn't a perfect agree-
ment," Anderson said. "But in
my opinion it was a fair agree-
ment."

Residents get say at mitigation workshop


Monday session
sef for 6:30 p.m.
in Marathon
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

I Big Pine homebuilders will
get a shot at helping craft their
own- mitigation fees Monday
when the county convenes a mit-
igation workshop. The meeting
starts at 6:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Though only 200 homes can
be built on Big Pine over the
next 20 years, those permits
have gotten a lot of interest since


By KEVIN WADLOW

A preliminary affordable-
housing project outlined for
Tavemier may not fit on its 2.7-
acre site, members of the
Tavernier Community Associa-
tion said Thursday.
"They're going to have to re-
think something," building
designer Tim Bricker said while
looking at a draft plan.
Gorman and Co. of Wisconsin
has prepared a 46-page proposal to
build three buildings holding a
total of 36 affordable-housing
units at the corner of U.S. 1 and
Burton Drive, at the entrance to
the Harry Harris Park subdivision.
As planned, the units 16
one-bedroom, and 10 three-bed-
room and 10 four-bedroom -
would be rentals.
Richard Barreto, a Harry
Harris resident who spoke with
Gorman staff, told the association
he was "kind of pleased" with the
preliminary plan.
Artist renditions show all
three buildings as single-story
structures.
"Aesthetically, it looks pretty
nice," Barreto said, particularly
when compared to site plans pre-
viously submitted by other groups.
"The Carlyle Group was
going to build a monstrosity
there," Barreto said. "Another
wanted to build 36 units with
only 36 parking places."


November when the Monroe
County Planning Department
came up with a proposal that
would have strapped new home
builders with close to $100,000
in mitigation fees. The Planning
Commission threw out that idea
in December, but the county still
has to come up with a way to pay
state-mandated mitigation for
any new development on the
island.
"This ordinance is full of
problems," said Planning
Commission Chairman Jim
Cameron when the proposal was
first introduced. The scrapped
ordinance would have required


Construction could be two or
more years away. Although the
project has early approval from
the Monroe County Commission
as a needed affordable-housing
effort, it still must undergo regu-
lar Monroe County development
application and review.
A draft plan shows 56 parking
spaces for the 36 units, a ratio that
worries TCA President Jerry
Wilkinson. Most working families
have at least two cars, and those
driving-age children have more,
he said. That leaves no parking for
visitors or trailered boats. -
With no recreational facilities
apparent on the design,
Wilkinson said, "I don't see this
as a children-friendly project."
That could mean more adults
wind up living there, he said.
"The four-bedroom units could
have eight adults, all with his
own car."
A resident of an adjacent street
said he worried about the effect
of a large low-income rental proj-
ect on the neighborhood.
Bricker said the "very unusual"
parking layout on the preliminary
design probably would be rejected
by county planners. "Twelve
spaces are in the property set-
back," he said. "That's a no-no."
"I'd be very disappointed if
they approve something that
every other property owner must
adhere to," Bricker said.


new home builders to pay
$98,000, commercial space
would cost $698 per square foot
in mitigation, and the county
would have to pay $2.7 million
per mile for resurfacing Big Pine
roads.
The county has been using
publicly owned land to offset the
state's mandate for mitigation
for more than a year, and Growth
Management Director Drew
Trivette warned that the so-
called mitigation bank could run
dry, leaving the county where it
might have to pay for mitigation
on some on-going projects,
including a possible $5 million
for the Mariner's Community
Park.
The mitigation is part of the
county's arrangement with the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
through a Habitat Conservation
Plan. That plan allows Fish and
Wildlife to issue a so-called take
permit, which accounts for a cer-
tain number of endangered Key
deer to be lost to development.
The HCP will allow 200 new
homes on Big Pine and No
Name Keys over the next 20
years. That's eight new market
rate and two new affordable rate


homes annually on the two
islands. It allows only two mar-
ket rate permits per quarter.
Some planning commission-
ers are toying with the idea of
throwing out the HCP, but start-
ing over could take years, and
some people who own lots on
Big Pine may not want to wait
that long to build.
In January, the County


Commission voted to lift a mora-
torium on issuing new building
permits, and the Planning
Commission has moved forward
on handing out those allocations.
Monroe County Planning
Director Townsley Schwab told
the commission that the county
will provide mitigation for the
permits that are allocated until a
new formula is established.

The body of an 18 year old
free diver from Dunedin,
Florida was recovered-from the
waters offshore of Bahia
Honda today just before noon.

Detective and Dive Team
Leader Mark Coleman found
18 year old Joshua Choi on the


bottom in about 75 feet of
water.
An autopsy will be done
today to confirm the cause of
his death, police said.
Choi was reportedly boating
with his father, brother and
friends late Thursday. He was
free diving (diving without
tanks) to about 75 feet when he
failed to surface. The Coast


Guard was notified and they
responded along with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife

Village hires a new city manager


Ken Fields starts
Monday at base
of $154,000 plus
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The Islamorada Village
Council voted 5-0 Thursday
night to hire Kenneth Fields, a
former manager of the
Seminole Tribe of Florida, as


its top administrator.
Fields will make an annual
salary of $154,000 with a total
compensation package worth
almost $200,000, Ed Koconis,
deputy village manager, con-
firmed in an e-mail.
Fields has a bachelor's
degree in engineering from
Cornell University and a mas-
ter's degree in public policy
and management from


Jury awards victim

more than $1 million


Carnegie Mellon University.
He was the assistant manager in
Hollywood, Fla., from 1998 to
2002, and manager of the
Seminole Tribe from 2002 to
2006, where his final salary
was $245,000.
The council previously
voted 3-2 to allow a range of
$150,000 to $200,000 for the
new manager's compensation
package, which includes salary
and benefits.
Former Manager Gary
Word's annual package totaled
$220,495, which included
$115,000 salary, a $6,000 auto
allowance, $32,400 housing
allowance and a 25 percent
retirement contribution.


Word, who had a tumultuous
relationship with council mem-
bers, stepped down in January,
a little more than a year after
taking the job.
In late January, the discus-
sion about salary range brought
two no votes from Council
members Don Achenberg and
Michael Reckwerdt. Both were
elected Tuesday to two-year
terms.
On Thursday night, both
joined with their fellow
Council members to make the
vote unanimous to hire Fields
with a package near the
$200,000 cap they rejected
back in January.
Fields was among the top


three finalists selected by the
Village Council at a special
meeting held Feb. 20.
The other two candidates
who made it through that first
cut of 24 applicants were: for-
mer Islamorada deputy city
manager Greg Tindle and for-
mer Middleton, Pa. city manag-
er Richard Gestrich.
At the Feb. 20 special call
meeting, Council members
thanked vice-mayor Cathi Hill
and executive assistant Mary
Swaney for conducting the
manager search.
Former Village mayor Chris
Sante, who served on previous
councils, described this as the
best manager search in years.


Suit arose
from 2001
auto accident
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@ keynoter.com

A Key West jury awarded
Marathon resident Garrett Dent
$1,010,100 in total damages
Feb. 29, the result of a 2001
automobile accident in which
Dent suffered multiple leg frac-
tures.
Dent's attorney, David
Wieder, said Paula Sparenberg
fell asleep at the wheel at mile
marker 17.5 on U.S. 1, causing
her car to cross the median and
collide head-on with Dent's
vehicle.
A release from Wieder states
Dent has suffered numerous sur-
geries, a prolonged time to heal
and has been unable to work
since the March 2001 accident.
"She's still not completely
healed; she's had 16 surgeries.
The doctors had a hard time
healing her bones," Wieder told
the Keynoter. He, along with
attorney David Hagen of Miami,
has been representing Dent for
several years.
Dent was awarded $103,000
in past medical expenses,
$220,500 for possible medical
expenses in the future and
$156,400 for past lost wages.
She was also awarded a total of
$514,600 in non-economic dam-
ages related to pain and suffer-
ing, much less than the $6 mil-
lion sought.
"My understanding is that's a
pretty Jgh everdiqt r fr le,


Keys," he said.
However, it remains unclear
whether Dent will ever see any
of the money awarded. Wieder
said Sparenberg has filed a good
faith claim against Progressive
Insurance, claiming the compa-
ny did not adequately protect her
against the judgment, which will
likely end in a separate trial.
Wieder said Dent's life has
been drastically altered in the
wake of the accident, but she is
relieved the process is over.
"She's trying to get her life
back together; she's a very brave
woman. But because of the cir-
cumstances she found herself in
she couldn't see her grandchil-
dren, she had to sell her house
and is living on Social Security
disability," he said. "It's not like
she's going to be getting this
money tomorrow."
Wieder said he and Hagen
will continue to work on Dent's
behalf "even if we don't get
paid, to ensure she receives her
just compensation."
Dent, a former bookkeeper,
still resides in Marathon.

date race between Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama,
Sawyer told the Tavernier
Community Association on
Thursday, "I hope they do it
with the same accuracy and
transparency that they demand
of us."
Sawyer, a Republican office
holder, said he had no special
knowledge of the Democrats'
plans, but expressed doubts
about a mail-in ballot or a new
election.
"If they want a regular elec-
tion with all the precincts,
they're talking about a tremen-
dous amount of money,"
Sawyer told the group.
He. also doubted the Dems
could hire "a private compa-
ny" to stage a mail-in
statewide ballot for registered
party members.


Returned ballots could not
be certified as authentic,
Sawyer said, because local
elections offices cannot share
voters' signatures on file with
the county department.
"Your signature is not pub-
lic record," he said.
Local absentee -ballots
always are compared to the
voter's signature by election
officials, Sawyer said. There is
no legal way to authorize any-
one else to do it.
Cost estimates of the
statewide mail-in vote range
from $4 million to $12 million,
according to the Miami
Herald.
Although the mail-in vote
was endorsed by a few state
party leaders, many other
prominent Democrats includ-
ing the Clinton and Obama


campaigns expressed opposi-
tion or deep concerns.
Sawyer said the Democrats
should use vote totals from the
January presidential-prefer-
ence vote, since several other
significant issues were on the
ballot, such as the home prop-
erty-tax questions.
That election "brought out a
lot of voters" both in the coun-
ty and state, Sawyer said.
"They need to be paying more
attention to Michigan than to
us," Sawyer-said.
The Democratic Party said
it would not count Florida or
Michigan votes toward con-
vention delegates because both
'states held primary elections
earlier that allowed by national
party rules. Obama was not
listed on the Michigan ballot,
but was on the Florida ballot.

Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital
is causing some excitement.
That's because scientists
report they are still receiving
information about King thanks
to a satellite tag sponsored by
a Mote volunteer.
King was found floating
near Casey Key, Fla., on April
27, 2006, and was treated for
lethargic loggerhead syn-
drome at Mote. It took four-
and-a-half months for King to
swim again and another eight
months for him to eat on his
own.
Upon his release, King
became one of several turtles
that Mote tagged with a satel-
lite transmitter, allowing the
rare opportunity to obtain
information about the move-
ments and habitat use of an
adult male loggerhead turtle.
Female turtles are regularly
studied and tagged by Mote as
they nest on the beaches each
year, but adult male sea turtles
typically never come ashore,
making it much more difficult
to learn about their move-
ments in the wild.
To date, a nesting female
loggerhead female nicknamed
"Virginia" had the longest-
running satellite tag with data
received for 352 days.
For a link to follow King's
travels, go to www.mote.org/

Southernmost RC Boat Racing Club members race on the waters off Blimp Road on Cudjoe Key. The club has constructed two
courses, on which the fiberglass boats with 5.5 horsepower engines can reach speeds of up to 60 mph.



'Motorheads' take to the waves

Radio-controlled craft attract competitors for organized racing
By RYAN MCCARTHY

It's much like the real thing.
just much more inexpensive and
on a smaller scale.
But make no mistake;
Southernmost RC Boat Racing
Club members are very serious
about their craft. Marathon resi-
dent Ed Kiefer started the club
two years ago and it is now in its
first year of organized, points-
based racing.
"It just kept growing, almost
every week we gain new inter-
est. There's a lot of people that
come and watch and are amazed
at how fast these boats are,'
Kiefer said. "These guys are real
intense about this."
The average size of these
radio controlled boats ranges
from 42 to 44 inches in length
and they weigh roughly 18
pounds. Driven by a 5.5 horse-
power engine reaching upwards
of 19,000 rpm, the boats darl
across the ocean surface al
speeds up to 60 miles per hour.
For Kiefer, a Pennsylvania
native who raced full-sized drag
boats for 10 years, RC boat rac-
ing is his way of keeping his pas-
sion for the sport alive.


"The one I owned went in
excess of 214 mph, so you can
see why I'm into this. That was
t ten years ago and nowadays, for
me to keep that interest, this is
an easy, inexpensive way to go
i racing," Kiefer said.
a The club meets every Sunday
at 10 a.m. on Blimp Road,
Cudjoe Key to run their boats
and holds a points race once a


month. Kiefer said Keys resi-
dents have been gathering at that
spot for 20 years now.
For him it started five years
ago when he began the
Hurricane Hole Boat Racing
Club in Key West.
"We ran electric boats down
there...and it evolved into these
gas motors," Kiefer.said, noting

RC boat racing attracts enthusiasts of all ages. Here, youngster

Starting point: $1,000

range is from 13 to 65," Kiefer,
the elder statesman, said. "Most
of them are adults, but it keeps
your hands in auto-type racing.
If you're a motorhead, it's a
great deal."
Kiefer said the group encour-
ages potential new members to
come and learn about the hobby.
"We all help each other. If
someone was interested they
wouldn't be lost or intimidated,"
he said. "We encourage people
to come see us and let us put you
in a boat."
Kiefer says you can be "put
in a boat" for roughly $1,000,
not counting the many modifica-
tions that club members often
make to maximize boat perform-
ance.
"This hobby can be gotten
into for as little as $1,000 and
that's a good starting point
because it takes time to learn


setup and how to handle it," he
said.
The boats are crafted by hand
in fiberglass with wood stringers
and feature motors made espe-
cially for radio-controlled boats
by Zenoah Engines. They run on
a mixture of 87 octane gas and
oil.
The handheld controller
allows the racer to be in total
command of the boat, he said,
including throttle and rudder set-
tings. Kiefer, who has crashed a
boat or two in his day, says
maneuvering one is much harder
than it looks.
"You're so focused on the
boat, [but] one wrong turn and
it's airborne," he said.
So, how long exactly will a
$1,000 investment in RC boat
racing last?
"For me...maybe a morith and
a half, but normally a couple
years," he joked.
For more information on the
club, contact Kiefer at 743-6020.


Please place order at either location by Monday, March 17.
Your order will be ready for pick up Saturday, March 22
between 11 am and 7:00 pm.

Budget cuts close Keys PACE


Sponsors look .
to schools for
fallback plan
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


Students and employees of
Keys PACE programs are
among the latest to feel the
impact of significant cuts in the
state budget.
PACE, which stands for
Practical, Academic, Cultural
Education, is a statewide non-
profit organization that provides
alternative education options
for girls at risk of dropping out
of school.
On Tuesday, less than a week
after the Florida House slashed
PACE's statewide budget by 4
percent, the PACE Executive
Committee gave official notice
that they'll close the Key West
PACE Center and two PACE
outreach programs at Coral
Shores High School and
Marathon High School.
By March 31, officials said,
56 girls attending the programs
will be forced back into the gen-
eral population at the three pub-
lic high schools, and about a
dozen PACE employees will
find themselves jobless in the

middle of the school year.
Monroe County PACE Board
of Directors Chairwoman Dixie
Humelsine said she's appalled
at how the executive committee
has handled the cuts.
"The (Keys) programs are


I "1tZ "://vvvvv_ c1t4L-_ir- c- 0Wm,


performing very well, yet PACE
has chosen, rather than to make
cuts equitably across board, to
throw these girls to the wolves,"
Humelsine said. "It seems a lit-
tle ridiculous that the Monroe
County girls have to be the sac-
rificial lambs. Perhaps they
need to look at all the VPs of
PACE, and at the people who
have handled this whole deal
with the legislature incredibly
horribly."
Humelsine said her main
concern is the wellbeing of the
girls.
"We do have eight or nine
girls who are on track to gradu-
ate," she said. "They are a huge
concern to us. We want to make
sure that they do get to gradua-
tion and that this doesn't take
them off track. Obviously these
are kids who've had chal-
lenges."
She also said she's sympa-
thetic for the PACE employees
who were. laid off Tuesday.
"These are teachers and
counselors. It's the middle of
the school year and we live in
Monroe County. Where exactly
are these people supposed to get
jobs?" she asked, adding, "They
gave them a totally inadequate
severance package."
PACE Vice President of
External Affairs. Mary Marx
said the executive committee


handled the cuts as' best they
could.
She said that because the cuts
came so close to the June 31 end
of PACE's fiscal year, the 4 per-
cent cut meant a reduction of
$453,000 in the $2.5 million that
remained in PACE's operating
fund.
She said PACE was also told to
expect more cuts starting July 1.
"Looking at the question of
'could the centers absorb these
cuts now and then take an addi-
tional cut in July,' the answer is no,
they simply couldn't," Marx said.
She said programs in
Monroe County were cut
because they had the lowest
number of girls-in-need referred
to them by the Department of
Juvenile Justice.-
"This was an extremely diffi-
cult and painful decision, it was
a really thoughtful decision,"
Marx said.
Humelsine said the next step
is to work with the school dis-
trict in transitioning the girls to
a traditional high school envi-
ronment.
"The one thing I can say
about [Superintendent] Randy
Acevedo is he cares about every
child in the school district," she
said. "I know they will do
everything they can to make
this transition go as smoothly as
possible."

Stock Island art worth the trip


The treasures
slightly hidden
in Lower Keys
Stock Island was the hot cul-
tural place last Saturday.
It used to be that the only
culture on SI was the drive-in
movie and the dog track (and
maybe other smoky backroom
pastimes), but that was a differ-
ent era.
The Renegade Clay studio
and gallery lived up to its name
with wonderfully experimental
uses of mud. Its postcard of
pedal extremities slathered with
artificially colored viscous earth
signaled a milieu outside the
mainstream for the show "Feats
of Clay." But finding the place is
tricky.
The Clay folks thoughtfully
added a map of the alien territo-
ry to their invitation, but it is not
always easy to identify what is
an actual street in the real work-
ing waterfront. Big "Renegade
Clay" sheet-signs steered me
into the windy parking lot.
Once you've found the rustic
room in a former industrial
building, the communal studio
opens into an airy gallery -
work tables artfully covered in
the black and white color theme,
hiding abundant studio clutter.
It is a very potterly place with
extraordinarily fresh work nicely
displayed. Very creative work at
remarkable prices worth the
drive into the unknown.
Judi Pingston fashioned a
tribe of archetypal figures.
d.b. Douglas was the vessel
king with a variety of building
techniques and glazes for a
bowls that explore their bowl-
ness.
Simone Lasswell's sensual
female bust manikin interpreta-
tions are an organic look at
womanhood.
And Pam Bluth draws us
back to vessels, with teapots that
look like they grew into place -
so organic, they look almost fun-
gal.
They are in a pair of low-
block buildings at 5550 5th Ave.
on Stock Island. Call them at
393-9231 for directions or more
information.

C.J. Groth
Just a stone's throw away,
also last Saturday night, Gallery
007 hosted a-show of-photo- -


graphs of
and all of
the Florida
Keys by
CJ. Groth,
"Through
S T Other
a 7 Eyes."
o ou s--- Groth's
photos cap-
S ture pre-
cisely what
Judi Bradford is fascinat-
ing about
her image and edits out anything
that is not. Like a well-crafted
Poe short story, every element
contributes to the plot.
The color is luscious and the
subjects have unique emotional
narratives. The award-winning
artist has a good eye for the Zen
of our surroundings the dance
of the windblown palms, the
sigh of the sun-scorched dock at
the end of the day.
Majestic pelicans, monolithic
mangroves, a chorus line of
seagulls the images reflect the
dignity of life and a good deal of
affectionate humor, too.
Gallery 007 is at 7007

292-3295 for an appointment to
see Groth's work. The show runs
through March 22. See some of

Sylvia strains a marriage


The Red Barn's -
latest offering
is biting comedy
T he Red Barn Theatre is
going to the dogs with a
revival of playwright A.R.
Gurney's romantic comedy
"Sylvia," opening on Tuesday at
the Key West theater.
The Broadway hit, first
staged at the Red Barn in 1997,.
returns with all its biting wit
directed by Joy Hawkins and
starring original cast members
Marjorie Paul Shook, Mimi
McDonald and Richard Grusin.
Bruce Moore joins the company
playing three characters as they
follow aCentral Park mutt
named Sylvia from the inean
streets to a clii' uptown brown- .
stone, where the fun and games
begin.
The show runs Tuesdays
through Saturdays at 8 p.m. until
April 12.
Here's the story:
When middle-aged Greg,
played by Grusin, returns to his
Upper West Side apartment
accompanied by Sylvia, a frisky
blonde he has just picked up in
the park, he turns his life upside
down. The trouble is the little


blonde, played by Paul Shook, is
an irresistible girl who is about
to chew a hole in his 22-year
marriage.
From the moment Greg
brings the feisty stray into the
high-rise he shares with his wife
Kate (McDonald), it's clear
there's a dangerous love triangle
in its earliest stages.
Soon Greg must choose
between wife and dog. After a
series of hilarious and touching
complications, Greg and Kate
learn to compromise, and Sylvia
becomes a valued part of their
lives.
It's a funny commentary on
mid-life and the role peLs'play in
'ogi' lives, .. .
Moore plaN s a macho dog
Sooner. an alcoholic society
matron and an androgynous mar-
riage counselor with multiple
piercings who is definitely not
Dr. Ruth.
Gurney's other plays include
"Love Letters," "The Cocktail
Hour" and "The Dining Room."


He lives in both New York City
and Connecticut and is a fre-
quent vacationer to Key West.
Paul Shook attended the
American Conservatory Theatre
and is a frequent Red Barn per-
former.
Grusin, a graduate of the
Goodman School of Drama and
Yale School of Drama, has also
made a mark on island theater,
appearing in several leading
roles.
McDonald is a founding
member of the Red Barn Actors
Studio and its current managing
director.
Moore moved to Key West
after a busy career on Broadway,
touring with national road com-
panies and recording Disney
sequndtracks ,
DirectorfHawkins i0ftlieir'

Wood breathes life into old fave


Latitudes gets
a new attitude
in Middle Keys
By DICK CONKLIN
L'Attitudes Contributor

If you never went to the old
|Gary's Pub and Billiards in
JLMarathon, you missed a popu-
lar locals' hangout with all of the
essentials clean, cool, tons of
TVs for sports, lots of pool
tables, good food, friendly service
and a huge variety of beers on
tap. Some called it the Adult Day
Care Center of the Florida Keys.
Gary's enjoyed a successful
10-year run, closing in 2004.
Recently its old location was
undergoing renovations to
become a Divers Direct store, but
the deal fell apart when the buy-
ers changed their minds. But
Gary's Pub proprietor Gary
Wood was determined to open
another locals' spot in Marathon.
So last month, he acquired the
poolside tiki bar, restaurant and
inside lounge at Sombrero Resort,
across from Sombrero Country
Club in Marathon. The resort
itself is now run by Sunvest USA,
which last year took back man-
agement and ownership of the
resort from Cay Clubs.
Wood says there is a new atti-
tude at his new Latitudes (no, not
named for this publication).
"We're starting by returning
an old Keys tradition once popu-
lar at the old Faro Blanco and
Key Lime resorts. Local tiki bar
patrons have use of-the pool.
They can order a cocktail or


something to eat and go for a
swim if they want."
Bring your own towel.
"I've been in this business
locally for some 35 years, and
I've seen a lot of people come
and go," Wood says. "I'm tired
of seeing developers tearing
places down and good places
closing. I saw an opportunity
here. With Sunvest running the
resort and giving it an uplift,
locals now have a great place to
go again."
Wood, a regular patron of the
tiki bar and restaurant since clos-
ing his own place, recalls a suc-
cession of owners over the years.
"Back in the day -it was called
the Good Times Lounge, then
Chef's Restaurant, then
Marathon Pizza and Pasta, and
finally Latitudes Restaurant and
Tiki Bar. The good times will
rise again," he said with a laugh.
Changes are under way at the
restaurant, where the slogan
might be "something old, some-
thing new." The hand-tossed
pizza recipe introduced by the
former owners of Marathon
Pizza and Pasta is still a popular
item. But there's more.
"Our night cook Yolanda is
introducing some specials, such
as her pasta dishes and lunch
specials like the rib-eye steak
sandwich and pulled pork," says
Wood. He has also introduced
some popular dishes from the old
Gary's Pub.
As a former bar and restaurant
owner and a longtime patron of
local establishments, Wood is
cautious about making too many


changes too soon.
In addition to Latitudes
Restaurant (which he jokes could
someday be called Gary's II,)
customers can order food at the
tiki and larger groups can use the
poolside deck or inside.lounge
for special events, such as the
many banquets and fundraisers
that have been held there over
the years.
If the weather turns bad, plas-
tic awnings can be pulled down
to keep the tiki folks dry and
warm, and if it really gets nasty,


everyone can move to the inside
lounge. Wood hasn't ruled out
adding a Web cam for the
patrons at home, but that's not on
the front burner.
Entertainment will continue to
be a popular draw at the outdoor
venue seven nights a week.
In addition to karaoke night,
local musicians will be featured.
Some of them, like Michael J
and Friends, Keith Reimer and
the popular Joe Mama, attract a
following of musician friends
who like to join in. Often a solo

performance can quickly turn
into a mini jam session. And gui-
tar man and singer Sparky Jones
still draws a crowd.
One thing hasn't changed -
any occasion is a good excuse for
a party.
Latitudes, 19 Sombrero Blvd.,
is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m.
to 3 p.m., and dinner is served
between 5 and 9 p.m. Wednesday
through Sunday. The tiki bar,
with entertainment, is open well
into the evening. Happy hour
runs from noon to 7 p.m.

In brief


Keys weed out 'Reefer'


The final shows
are this week
at Waterfront
If you haven't been to "Reefer
Madness: The Musical" yet,
you still have time to go one
toke over the line.
The show you know the
story ends its run at the
Waterfront Playhouse at
Mallory Square in Key West
March 22.
It's based on the 1936 prop-
aganda movie "Reefer-_
Madness," with music, lyrics
and book by Dan Studney
("Desperate Housewives") and
Kevin Murphy ("The
Simpsons"), who felt the
campy movie was just begging
to be made into a musical.
"Reefer Madness" tells the
story of one Jimmy Harper, an
upstanding youth who becomes
a whacked-out pot fiend after
just one toke of the' evil reefer.
After he meets a group of
tainted misfits, he is immedi-
ately sucked into a world of
weed freaks, orgies, hallucina-
tions and brownies.


The story is propelled by
over-the-top singing, dancing
and lung-filled pandemonium.
The cast is a mind-blowing
high of talent that includes
David Black, Denis Hyland,
Mary Falconer, Marc Crow,
Kristen Bussiere, Nulita Loder,
Michael Aaglan, Kristen
Wilson, Laura Chaneski,
Carolyn Cooper, Christine
Marguerite, Rhett Kalman, Scott
Shambaugh and Phil Tabb.
Danny Weathers, the
Waterfront's artistic director,
directs the South Florida pre-
miere of "Reefer Madness.."

Fabian's a cheap
alternative to
expensive fun
By CLAUDIA MILLER
L'Attitudes Contributor
Entering Fabian's Arcade at
Plaza 88 (mile marker 88)
is like stepping back in
time.
The sounds of balls rolling
along the skee-ball ramps fill
the air, and the flashing colors
of '80s video games like Ms.
Pac-Man, Frogger and Galaga
blink in the dark.
Owner Fabian Cairo has
installed 38 games. In addition
to the classics, he has included
some newer games like Target
Terror, where the goal is to
shoot terrorists, a skateboard
simulator called Air Trix and
several seated driving games.
Ten of the games give tickets
for points earned that can be
redeemed for prizes at the color-
ful toy counter. Prizes range
from a ring for. one ticket all the
* way up to an Xbox for 20,000
* tickets.
* Cairo got the idea to open
* the.arcade because he was
* always looking for activities to
. do with his 11-year-old son,
* Fabian Jr.
* "Besides Founders Park and
* the bowling alley, if we're not
* out on the boat, there's really not
* that much to do," he said. "I
* used to hang out at arcades when
* I was younger, so I figured this


Celebrate St.


(I)


would be a good place for kids
to go."
Cairo said he is trying to
keep the prices low so parents
can come in and try out the
arcade with their children. No
games are more than 50 cents
and sodas and candy bars are 75
cents. Soon, he will be hosting
birthday parties as well.
"I want people to know that
this is a family-oriented place,"
he said. "I'm a single dad, and I
run the place. I'm there all the
time."
Fabian's Arcade is open 4 to
8 p.m. Monday, 3 to 10 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday, 3 to
11 p.m. Friday, noon to 11 p.m.
Saturday and noon to 10 p.m.
Sunday. It's closed Tuesday. .For
more information, call 853-5350.

If you're a book lover, three
upcoming Keys events were
made for you.
Wednesday at 6 p.m., nov-
elist Roxana Robinson will give a
free reading from her latest book,
"Sweetwater," at the Studios of
Key West, 600 White Street. A
wine and cheese reception and
book signing will follow.
Robinson is the author of the
three novels, "Sweetwater
(2003), "This Is My Daughter"
(1998) and "Summer Light"
(1988); short-story collections
"A Perfect Stranger" (2005),
"Asking for Love" (1996) and
"A Glimpse of Scarlet (1991);
and a biography, "Georgia
O'Keeffe: A Life" (1989).
S'* Hooked on Books, mile
. marker 82.6 oceanside, is host-
ing award-winning writer James
- Born at 1 p.m. March 22 to sign
i his new- book, "Bum Zone."
The thriller by the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
officer is about ATF agent Alex
Duarte who is in New Orleans to
check out a mysterious
Panamanian named Ortiz who
likes to trade guns illegally and
import marijuana by the truck-
load. Duarte suddenly finds him-


self in the middle of something
bigger than he has ever known.
Guns and drugs are bad
enough but there are other
things that are much, much
worse. Among them are a shad-
owy colonel who is not what he
seems; a white supremacist
intent on becoming "the man
who changed America;" and an
attractive FBI agent with a lot of
pull and a lot of secrets. Duarte
knows he's in deep with these
characters. He just hopes it's not
over his head.
Born has also written "Field of
Fire," "Escape Clause," "Shock
Wave" and "Walking Money."
Key West mystery writer
and former journalist Michael
Haskins is the guest speaker at
the Marathon Friends of the
Library's Books & Coffee series
March 27. It's from 1 to 2:30
p.m. at Presbyterian Kirk of the

"Chasin' the Wind" is a story

Studios of Key West


starts student program


Radziejewski
and Bertram
are 1st recipients
T he Studios of Key West
has awarded its first art
scholarships for Monroe
County High School students to
Kyla Radziejewski and Monica
Bertram, seniors at Key West
High School, to develop their
creativity and skills.
They allowed the pair to par-
ticipate in Carlos Ferguson's
Introduction to Drawing work-
shop, held in early March at the
Studios, 600 White St.
"I wanted to learn the ele-
ments of design and proper form
to incorporate into my artwork,"
Bertram said. "This experience
was amazing. I felt at home.
Everyone was friendly and I
love the atmosphere the Studios
has created."
"I jumped at the chance to
develop my drawing technique
and ability to render shapes real-
istically," said Radziejewski,
recently accepted at the presti- .
gious Rhode IslandScdaool of


Design. "I wanted it to last
longer than three days: the expe-
rience at the Armory was more
than I could possibly put into
words."
The Studios of Key West was
established last year as a creative
hub for the island, and recently
completed rehabilitation of the
historic Armory building at
Southard-and White streets. The
organization continues to grow
its creative campus and offers


more than 50 workshops and
cultural events each year.
Applications for the student
scholarship program are avail-
able at the Armory, and any
interested Monroe County high
school students are encouraged
to apply. Awards can be applied
toward any workshop offered by
the Studios, ranging from paint-
ing and photography to poetry
and book-making.

ICS Eagles cruise against Princeton

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Island Christian pitcher
Phillip Izaguirre threw five score-
less innings Tuesday as the base-
ball Eagles beat Princeton
Christian, 10-4.
The Eagles moved to 5-2
headed into Friday's game
against tough Brito Private
(results not available at press
time).
"The kids are hitting well and
look sharp defensively," said
head coach Tony Hammon.
Island Christian held a 10-0
lead into the top of the seventh
Tuesday before the Panthers scored
their four runs off a reliever and
reserve defenders. "It really was
never in doubt," Hammon said.
Izaguirre had a scoreless one-
hitter through five and a third
innings. He struck out eight
Panthers and issued three walks.
A suicide squeeze bunt by
third baseman Andy Hertel
brought in the first run for ICS in
the second inning.
The Eagles blew the game
open with eight runs in the fourth
inning, capped by a two-run dou-
ble from Tim Globus.
Jordan Izaguirre slapped a
two-run single, with Tom
Cavanagh and Phillip Izaguirre
singling in solo runs.
In the sixth, Phillip Izaguirre
reached on a walk and came
around to score on a stolen base
and passed ball.

Coral Shores' girls are 4-0 in
district competition (4-4 overall)
and can lock up the district's top
seed in the April 15 tournament -
to be played in Tavernier with a
win today.
The Hurricane boys got ready
with a Thursday home match
against Ransom Everglades,
falling to the visiting Raiders, 8-2.


"I really don't focus on the
score," Bryan said. "Our major
focus right now is continuing to
play well and improve in every
game."
He credited the Hurricane
defense for holding up well
against an incessant Ransom
attack. In a furious three-minute
period to close the first half,
Coral Shores' all-district goal-
keeper D.J. Farr and his team-
mates fended off numerous


Raider shots on goal.
Farr ended with 19 saves as
the Canes held Ransom to a pair
of second-half goals. "A lot of
credit goes to D.J.," said the
coach.
Freshmen attackers Austin
Armstrong and Devin Morris each
scored a goal for Coral Shores.
"I think we could have scored
a lot more if we'd been able to get
the ball down to that end of the
field more," Bryan said. "We've
got to get better on ground balls.
Ransom was picking them up on
the first attempt while we need
two or three attempts."

Brossard wins 8-1 against MAST


Marathon team
aims for district
tourney in April
By RYAN McCARTHY
nnccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls tennis team continued to
"steamroll," as coach Mark
Hooper put it, in a Thursday
home victory, against MAST
Academy.
The girls won 6-1 and are
now remarkably 12-4 this year
after a winless season last year.
Hooper said the addition of
Marisa Brossard, Rose and
Michele Bellevue, as well as the
improved play of Angela
Farello and Kelsey Wonderlin,
has made for a potent lineup.
"I found a lineup and order
that seems to make sense and
gives our girls the best chance'
for victory. We continue to build
momentum towards our district
tournament in Miami," Hooper
said. Districts are scheduled to
begin April 7 this year.
Brossard continues to lead
the Dolphins, earning an easy 8-
1 victory over her opponent.
"She played well; [she was]
smart and consistent and put a
lot of pace on the ball," Hooper
said. "She had the girl running,
that's for sure."
No. 2 Angela Farello won 8-
4 over an opponent she lost 0-8
to just one week prior.
No. 3 Rose Bellevue won 8-
0 and "totally dominated her
opponent," Hooper said, despite
battling an elbow injury suf-
fered during a Monday match
against Key West High School.
No. 4 Michele Bellevue won
her match 8-3 and No. 5 Kelsey
Wonderlin earned an 8-1 victo-

ry.
Brossard and Farello won
their No. 1 doubles match 6-5
(7-4) in a tiebreaker, after losing
to the same pair last week.
Freshman Annabelle Walker
and seventh-grader Taylor
Konrath lost their No. 2 doubles
match, but Hooper said the two
gained valuable match experi-
ence.
The boys team's struggles
continued against MAST, as
they lost 1-6 and fell to 3-11 on
the year. The team was missing
starters John Danaher and
Weston Wiatt, which Hooper
said didn't help their cause.
Kerry Wonderlin stepped in
at No.1 for the boys and lost 3-
8.
"Kerry played to the best of
his ability and that's all I can
ask from my players. [No. 1] is
tough because you're always
playing against the other
school's best."
The lone victory for the boys
came at No. 1 doubles, where
Wonderlin and junior Alex
Chemiavsky won 6-5 (7-4) in a
tiebreaker.

National powerhouse plays Key West


Today's game

against 'Warriors'
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Russell County, the top-
ranked high school baseball team
in Alabama, will be at Rex Weech
Field today for two games against
Key West High, and Warriors
coach Tony Rasmus can hardly
wait.
"Other coaches tell me Key
West has the most raucous crowd


you're ever going to be around,
with the fans yelling and cussing
at you," Rasmus said over the
phone Thursday. "My gosh, that
sounds like fun."
The teams play at 11 a.m. and
8 p.m.
Russell County, a state runner-
up last season, is 10-1. The
Conchs are 6-6.
The Warriors' visit was sug-
gested by Key West assistant
coach Chris Valdez, who met
Rasmus through Perfect Game
USA, an organization that further
develops high school players.


Rasmus' sons, Colby and
Cory, both No. 1 draft picks in
2005, played on Valdez's Perfect
Game team, and now the two
men coach together during the
summer. "One day we sat down
and I said. 'Tony, you need to find
a way to get to Key West to play,'
"Valdez said.
A chemistry teacher, Rasmus
led Russell County to a national
high school title in 2005
(bestowed by Baseball America)
and was named national coach of
the year. Many of his players
have gone on to play profession-
ally.
Although Russell County is a
rural school in Seale near the
Georgia line, Rasmus said,
"People think we're this real rich


powerhouse because we were
first in the country a few years
ago. Most of our players come in
from other areas."
The Warriors were scheduled
.to fly Friday morning to Miami
and travel to Key West on a bus
arranged by Valdez. On Sunday,
they will be the Conchs' guests
on a deep-sea fishing trip.
Key West is Russell County's
first stop on a week-long trip that
will continue on the mainland
Monday at Southridge, Tuesday
at Florida Christian and
Columbus, Thursday at
Monsignor Pace and Friday at
American Heritage.
"We may not win a game,"
Rasmus said with a laugh.
The Warriors most of whom


are under 6 feet tall are a hard-
hitting team led by shortstop
Tyler Dial, outfielder Jeremy
Boyte and Rasmus' two other
sons, second baseman Cyle and
catcher Case.
In this morning's game, left-
hander Drew Rivera (2-3) will
start for the Conchs against
right-hander Bryce Lane. Tonight,
Blayne Weller (1-2) will face
lefty Jon Mark Ramsey.
Key West, which has scored
37 runs in its last four games, is
led by designated hitter Kyle
Lepine, who is batting .455 with
18 RBIs; shortstop Raiko Alfonso
(.422 with 12 RBIs), and second
baseman Frankie Ratcliff, who
has a .390 average.


Tiger in the Woods tourney slated


The 3rd Annual Tiger in the
Woods Golf Tournament, spon-
sored by the Key West Chamber,
will be teeing off at Key West
Golf Club April 6.
A 2008 Chevrolet truck, cour-
tesy of Niles Sales and Service,

Conch captains:


make it 4 in a row


Haack plays at
All-Stars match
In Port St. Lucie
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Kara Haack became the
fourth Key West High School
girls soccer team captain to play
in the Florida Athletic Coaches
Association's Senior All-Star
Game last weekend at Port St.
Lucie.
Selected by coaches through-
out the state, Haack was on the
South team that won the tourna-
ment for the second consecutive
year.
In previous years, Conch cap-
tains Zoe Vincent, Hali
Lombardi and Jessica Kilgore
represented Key West in the
game.
Haack, a senior, recently
signed with Embry-Riddle
University in Daytona Beach,


where three other former
Conchs have played Noelle
Niblack, Jamie Kloza and
Britney Commander.
Although the soccer season
ended in January for the Conchs,
many of the team members are
improving their skills on the Key
West Soccer Club's under-19
team.
The team will play South
Kendall at 1:30 p.m. today in the
Region A title game in
Plantation.
The Conchs won their first
two games in the tournament, 2-
1 and 3-0, with Krizzie Menez
scoring four of the five goals.
With only 10 players, the team
lost the third game, 2-1.
Coach Scott Paul said that
Menez, who has been a star of
the Key West High track team,
will play today, as will Jasmine
Jones, Jennifer Barcenas and
Rachel Rivet, who also run
track.
