Family still



in disbelief



over death


Officials say ray's
force caused
blunt trauma
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

In a brief statement Friday,
the brother of Judy Kay
Zagorski, who died in a freak
accident Thursday when an
eagle ray jumped into the boat in
which she was riding, says the
family is still in disbelief.
"Our family is very, very
close. What we need right now is
some privacy and time to grieve
alone. We all miss Judy dearly; it
just hasn't sunk in yet," Dan
Bouck, Zagorski's brother, said
to a gathering of media at Sunset


Park in Key Colony Beach.
"The events that led to Judy's
death [Thursday] were the
results of an unavoidable acci-
dent. It couldn't have been pre-
vented and won't likely be repli-
cated," he said.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Officer Robert Dube called the
accident "an act of God," the
likes of which he has never seen.
He said the circumstances of the
accident do not fall within
guidelines to be classified a
boating accident.

Another candidate has entered
the race to replace retiring
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Sandra Taylor, making that
the most-sought-after local seat
in the 2008 election so far.'
Mary Vanden Brook brings a


long history in family court to the
arena. The Summerland Key res-
ident has worked as the county's
Circuit Court administrator the
past three years. Before that, she
managed Family Court for 10
years. She has also served as
director for the Guardian Ad
Litem Program and a general
master for Family Court cases as
well as a mediator for Family
Court and dependency cases.

Judge orders board

to turn over ballots


Major plan for
redevelopment
rests on case
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

A county judge has ordered
attorneys for the directors of
Key Largo Ocean Resort to
turn over three years of board
election materials.
The order is the latest


development in what began
more than 10 years ago as an
effort by Monroe County to
address building code viola-
tions in the mobile-home
cooperative, and has become a
fight between park residents
- a mix of snowbirds and
Cuban immigrants and the
longstanding board of direc-
tors.

Attorneys for some of the
co-op's residents requested
the election information
because they question the
legitimacy of board elections
that took place from 2002 to
2005.
If the elections weren't
legitimate, then the attorneys
argue, a development agree-
ment the board negotiated
with the county that would
force the park's more than 200
shareholders to raze their
mobile homes and buy modu-
lar single family homes is
questionable.
"The key piece that has to
be determined by the court is,
was the board of directors
validly elected and, [if not], is
the development agreement
valid," attorney John Jabro
told Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge Luis Garcia
March 14.
Jabro and attorney Pepe
Herrera were seeking a tempo-
rary receiver to replace the
board, but said they couldn't
properly argue their case
March 14 because the board of
directors' attorney didn't pro-
vide them with information
they requested.
"The receiver will manage
all of the affairs of KLOR, and
act in the best interest of the
shareholders. Specifically, we
will ask the receiver to consid-
er a site plan which preserves
the common areas for the ben-
efit of the. shareholders, is fair
to all, and does not discrimi-
nate against any shareholder,
while accomplishing the
objective of Monroe County,"
Herrera wrote in an e-mail to
The Reporter.
Garcia ordered Frank
Greenman, the Key Largo
Ocean Resort board attorney,
to provide the ballots, all writ-
ten communications between
the board and Monroe County
relating to the development
agreement, and the coopera-
tive's financial records by
mid-April.
Greenman accused 'the
shareholders' attorneys of
delaying the inevitable -
having their clients comply'
with the development agree-
ment mandated by the county
,because of ,decades i of code;
violations -, i i'- z J


"This is just another way to
delay, delay, delay and delay,"
Greenman said to Garcia.
The development agree-
ment approved by the board of
directors would require most
of the homes on the 22-acre
oceanside property at mile
marker 95 be replaced with
single-family and modular
houses.
The plan was approved by
the county Planning
Commission in February
2006, when more than 100 of
the park's residents attended
the meeting to protest the
agreement. These residents
say it was a different plan than
the one they agreed to give to
the board to submit to the
county.
Greenman said at the time
that the plan is the biggest
development agreement in
Monroe County history.
Residents opposed to the
agreement say it would hike
the cost of living so high,
nearly 80 percent of the share-
holders would have to go.
Residents have to either
comply with the terms of the
agreement within seven years
or sell their share of the co-op.
The development agree-
ment the community's submit-
ted to the county stipulates
that most of the homes at the
park are recreational vehicles
and do not meet county and
federal flood and hurricane
standards.
The issue reached a boiling
point in 2005 when many of
the park's residents said the
agreement sent to the county
by the board of directors, led
by longtime president Pedro
Salva, was not the one that
passed on a 169-82 vote in
2004.
Residents like Peggy and
Roger Olds, Ron and Ann
Evans and Maria Gonzales
said they voted on an agree-
ment that mandated all homes
must come into compliance
with code but did not call
for the destruction of most-of
the existing units.
Many residents in the .park
tried unsuccessfully to have
Salva voted out of office, but
he continues to win elections.
Monroe County has a lien
against the property and could
foreclose on it unless it
;approves., a development
agreement' i. ; i ) i .

Officials say
increase needed
for roads, bridges
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday gave
a grudging nod to explore one of
two new proposed gas taxes.
Commissioners, meeting in
Marathon, voted against one tax
that would add 5 cents to a gallon
of gas but approved another pro-
posal that could add 1 cent to a
gallon.
This was the second time
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton
suggested a total of 6 cents added
to the local-option gas tax, which
she says is necessary to keep
county roads and bridges main-
tained.
According to Public Works
Director Dent Pierce, the county
is fast running out of money
needed to maintain its 28 bridges
and nearly 400 miles of second-
ary roads.
"Whatever the Legislature
does in the next few weeks is not
going to be good" for the county,
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said. "Therefore, more than ever
we need this fuel tax. At least
with this fuel tax, the residents
are not the only ones to pay."
The commission voted against
imposing one tax increase that
would have added 5 cents to the
existing local-option gas tax.
Then it voted to approve a public
hearing on adding a ninth cent to
another local-option tax. The first
8 cents of that tax are collected
on diesel fuel, but the added
penny would be collected on all
fuel, Hutton said.
The ninth cent tax would raise
about $550,000 annually, County
Engineer David Koppel told the
commission.
"For every gallon of gas sold,"
he said, "there is 48 cents of tax."
The breakdown, he said,
includes 18.4 cents in federal
taxes, 23.7 cents in state taxes
and 6 cents already collected by
the county.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro adamantly opposed the
higher tax, saying residents he
talked to do not want.to see the


increase.
"We're making them pay
more money to. go to work," he
said, "and taking more money out
of their budget in these hardest of
times."
He said, too, that it isn't a
good idea to spread the tax bur-
den to the tourists.
"We have our small business
people to watch out for," he said.
"We keep on charging our
tourists more and more to come
down, they're not going to come
down."
Di Gennaro, Mayor Sonny
McCoy and Commissioner Dixie
Spehar voted to deny a public
hearing for the 5-cent tax.
Spehar's was the sole vote in
opposition to the ninth-cent tax.
The proposal will now be
added to the April County
Commission meeting in Key
West for approval.

Alleged suspect
caught in the act

A surveillance operation at a
Key Largo restaurant and bar led.
to the arrest Thursday of a repeat
burglary suspect, the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office says.
Staff at Snapper's Restaurant
on Seaside Avenue reported they
were having trouble with items
missing from the bar the past
weeks. The owner set up a video
camera and captured images of a
man wearing a hooded sweatshirt
entering and taking bottles of
liquor, Deputy Becky Herrin said.
Detective Jason Madnick and
Deputy Lance Hemandez set up
their own surveillance Wednes-
day night in hopes of catching
the suspect. Madnick sat inside
the office area watching video
from a camera set up.
Herrin said that at 1:30 a.m.,
Brandon Shelby, 19, of Key
Largo entered the bar, took sev-
eral items and left. Officers
moved in and arrested him.
Shelby reportedly admitted to
the break-in and to a second one
March 14.. He was charged with
burglary and theft.

There's little smoke

in cigar-store raid

The cynic is us sometimes emerges to raise questions on
behalf of the public at large.
With all the many criminal activities afoot, we wonder why
the Monroe County State Attorney's Office decided a massive
sweep of cigar shops in Key West the past week was such high
priority.
Coordinated raids of seven shops yielded the astounding
charge that some were selling cigars labeled as Cuban that, in
fact, may be fake knockoffs of the real things.
Well, duh.
Does it come as a surprise to consumers, especially those
who buy cigars, that it's illegal to sell Cuban cigars in the
United States?
'" OK, we know the Conch Republic issues fake passports and
gulls the passing tourists with other such fare, but surely cigar
smokers know the genuine article isn't not openly sold in the
United States because of the ban on trade with Cuba.
A press release issued by the State Attorney's Office is illu-
minating in other regards.
The coordinated raid took up the resources not only of the
State Attorney's Office but also the Sheriff's office, Key West
Code Compliance, the Florida Department of Revenue and
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Oh, and "representatives of cigar manufacturers."
Riding shotgun, so to speak, were manufacturer reps from
Cohiba, Montecristo, H. Upmann and Romeo y Julieta.
Search warrants were issued on all seven establishments
simultaneously "to prevent shopkeepers from'tipping off
other cigar stands to the investigation," according to the State
Attorney's Office.
After all that time and manpower, the simultaneous criminal
sweep turned up charges of "misdemeanor vending of counter-
feit goods."
If enough fake Cohibas are found in the haul to up the ante
past $1,000, those charges could escalate to felony status.
"Tourists come to Key West thinking Cuban cigars are every-
where," according to Paul Meyers, chief investigator for the
State Attorney Mark Kohl.
He, goes on to describe how unsuspecting Key West visitors
saunter into a "quaint cigar stand on Lower Duval" with high
expectations. "And with a wink, a vendor reaches under his
counter and pulls-out what looks like a Cuban Cohiba."
Hey, we say anyone dumb enough to pay $20 or more for a
pretend Cuban puff ought to consider that the price of life's hard
lesson: Smoking is bad for your health and your wallet.

Voter education is essential, this year especially


EDITOR:
Our local news media has been great, but I
would like to remind all Monroe County media
outlets they have a duty to keep voters informed.
With so many important issues coming before
our commissioners between elections, it is easy
for people to forget the outcomes of many impor-
tant issues, causing many voters, as we have
seen, to vote against their own best interest.
I suggest that all media outlets provide a com-
prehensive list of issues and outcomes for the
voters to review before they vote and they do this
just before absentee ballots are mailed out and
the Sunday before the elections.
Sewers, development, affordable housing and
many other issues are now at a critical level.
Brief overviews of where these major issues
stood three years ago, what has been done within
the three-year space between elections and where
these issues stand now should be highlighted
publicly. These informational pieces should be
just the facts and how they now appear on the
public record. Those running for office should
also be highlighted and who and what they have
supported over the past three years should be
noted.
This being said, let us not forget we are deal-
ing with politicians. Those who have disregarded


the wishes of the voters will have a full bag of
misguided complaints and well-worded, well-
funded and, at times, intimidating misinformation
to spread prior to the election, and most certainly
about my proposed voter informational pieces..
Not a surprise, when we have all seen some,
within certain political circles, actually think they
can stop people from speaking publicly about
important issues or foolishly avoid media outlets
all together..
The voters in Monroe County need to be
reminded before the upcoming election how we,
as voters, are being represented (I should say
embarrassed) and how well our county is being
taken care of on major issues.
This informational coverage needs to be
shown early enough to include absentee voters
and the Sunday before the Aug. 26 primary. The
same should be done with the runoffs (if any) one
week prior to the general election and the same
for the general election absentee balloting.
After all that has happened most recently and
over the past three years, Monroe County resi-
dents deserve at least this much. Don't allow oth-
ers to have you vote against your own best inter-
est. There is too much at stake.

Deputy shows true professionalism


EDITOR:
The ennobling characteristics of a peaceful
warrior are personified by Monroe County
Sheriff's Office Deputy Sheila Swindle's pres-
ence at the home of an individual who had
recently been the victim of a violent crime. The
entire family, along with the infant children, was
stricken with panic, stress and fear.
The friendly and cordial approach she initiat-
ed at the scene diffused an atmosphere that could
have become emotional. Her professional
demeanor and comportment were extraordinary.
The anxiety that embodied this family began to
ease the moment she stepped foot on their prop-
erty. The way in which she carried herself exud-
ed a confident yet temperate aura, which com-
forted and gave hope to a family brutalized by a
violent act committed by a home invader upon
the mother and wife of a man whose family has

The patience and detailed attention rendered

Spread the disaster risk


EDITOR:
A couple days ago, we
received a flyer from the
Federal Emergency
Management Agency promot-
ing the wisdom of obtaining
flood insurance to protect
one's home and property
against flood damage. We
have flood insurance for our
home, but it was an interest-
ing flyer so I read further.
According to the flyer,
flooding is the No. 1 natural
disaster in the U.S.
Assembling comparative data
for flood losses vs. wind
losses is difficult at best for
the average individual.
However, if the above state-
ment is true, why is our flood
insurance premium $406
while our windstorm premi-
um is $5,460?
I believe we are beyond
high time for the federal gov-


ernment to establish a nation-
al windstorm insurance pro-
gram similar to what we now
have for flooding. Better yet
perhaps, a natural disaster
insurance program that would
cover flood, hurricane, torna-
'do and other high-wind
events, earthquakes, mud-
slides, etc., might be the best
approach to spread the risk
(and the premiums) across all
disasters.
Obviously, the insurance
industry itself cannot be
relied upon to be fair and
objective in establishing
rates. If it was, Monroe
County, with some of the
'lowest losses in the entire
state and the most stringent
building code, would not be
paying the highest windstorm
rates anywhere in Florida.

Charities truly benefit


EDITOR:
Marathon should take its
hats off to John and Carol
Frumorgan for the outstand-
ing job they did in putting
[on] the 2008 Fraternal
Charities Inshore Fishing
Tournament.
This tournament was a
low-cost ($55 per adult and
kids free), very fun event
that raised an outstanding
amount of $4,239 for Habitat
for Humanity, Marathon
Shriners, Marathon Elks, the


Disabled American Veterans,
Marathon Moose and the
American Legion. I have
reviewed all the financial
on the event and every
penny was spent on the
event and not on car rentals,
management fees and travel
expenses.
The tournament was well
thought out,.well managed
and a great time for all.

Slow down, you're in the Keys


EDITOR:
For many, many years my
wife Denise and I had vaca-
tioned on Big Pine Key. My
wife passed away after a
long illness but always
loved and talked about the
Key deer. One of the saddest
memories we had was
watching the numbers go up
on the "Key Deer killed this
year" signs.
Our question is this: Key
deer are mostly on Big Pine
Key. If the speed limit was
reduced to, say, 15 mph and
strictly enforced to keep the
speed down, would this so
adversely affect everyone
traveling the short distance
through Big Pine (keeping
in mind that while driving
from one side of the island
to the other you usually wv)ll.


have to stop at the stoplight
anyway).
Has anyone checked the
average time it takes to
drive at today's speed limit
verses a much lower limit? I
realize it would cost more to
enforce but would surely be.
offset by enforcement fees
collected from speeders.
I'm sure if more visitors
to the Keys really got to
know these diminutive crea-
tures, they would agree the
small increase in travel time
would not be a hardship. I
hope they are not just
remembered through pic-
tures. After all, isn't that the
motto of the Keys?
Slow down and enjoy the
Keys.

Board, superintendent

both answer to voters


Much has been written recently about the
relationship between the Monroe School
Board and our superintendent. From my per-
spective, the relationship is a healthy one
among my fellow board members.
Our meetings are orderly, relatively efficient
and we speak to each other in a professional
and dignified manner. I see each of us accord
the others a high degree of respect. Much of
the same is true with our interaction with the
superintendent.
Recently, our superintendent wrote that he
takes his marching orders from the School
Board. Actually, Florida statutes are very clear
in this respect. As the full-time salaried chief
executive officer, the superintend-
ent develops plans and budgets on
everything ranging from teaching r
students to-managing a large group s-
of employees and vast real estate
properties. Procedure dictates the
superintendent proposes and the
School Board votes the proposals f
up or down.
The current School Board has .
taken action on many items that
have lingered for years as problem-
atic issues for our school district.
The School Board approved the
transformation of the Trumbo
Road waterfront property, which
currently houses district offices, Steve Pri
into affordable housing for our is chair
teachers and staff. We have the M
approved the consolidation of our County
two smallest Key West elementary Boc
schools in an effort to achieve
operating cost savings.
We approved the elimination of
salary supplements for district administrators.
This compensation plan had been roundly
criticized by two consulting reports and audi-
tor general reports and it had been the subject
of many editorials urging the School Board to
make all facets of our compensation plan fair,
transparent and easily understood. It is now
up to the superintendent to bring forth such a
compensation plan for our approval.
The current School Board has taken on
these emotionally charged issues because of
the political will that brought us into office.-
The recent inquiry by board member John
Dick into travel receipts is just another exam-
ple of this School Board proactively asking
questions and making inquires based on our
oversight of taxpayers' dollars. It should be
noted that the record will reflect Dick never
made a motion requesting travel receipts; he
instead opted to ask the School Board attor-
ney how he. could execute a public records
request, which is how everyone obtained a
summary of the expenditures.
The point was not to look over hotel and car
rental receipts; it was to examine if district
employee spending habits had begun to
change given the looming budget cuts. Seeing


three married couples attend a conference
among 17 total attendees did not give me the
feeling that much has changed.
The disconnect comes when the School
Board sees that our district has a dispropor-
tionately high number of administrators per
student coupled with millions of dollars spent
each year pursuing the latest advances in
technology.
At a recent School Board meeting, the
board instructed the superintendent to start
crafting a draft budget for the next fiscal year
with a target of $6 million in spending cuts,
while eliminating the inequity that our teach-
ers and staff pay for medical insurance, and to
provide raises for teaching staff.
Our board voted 4-1 for this reso-
lution. After all, in January, 77 per-
cent of voters gave our-board the
right to continue the flexible fund-
. .. ing formula that allows us to use a
half-mill property tax for teachers
and nurses and other essential
4- operating costs
Our superintendent did not
warmly embrace this resolution. It
will not be politically popular to
cut the district's spending by 6 to
10 percent for next year, especially
in an election year. These cuts will
affect the number of non-teaching
bramsky people we are able to employ and
man of will affect the number of consult-
onroe ing contracts the district can pro-
School pose. It will require laser focus on
rd. the core essentials for teaching and
rd. learning and the elimination of
many "luxury" items the district
was able to afford in previous
budget years.
Since the School Board comprises elected
officials, we understand and empathize with
the difficulty of the superintendent's task. Last
budget year, Dick proposed a series of cost
cuts that would have begun to right-size the
district's administrative staff and bring it more
into line with other more-efficient districts.
The district staff unabashedly lobbied the
School Board to defeat his proposal.
This is the dynamic that exists between our
superintendent and the board. We all have
constituents that put us into office. I truly
believe that we all have the best of intentions
in mind, which is to provide the highest quali-
ty education to the children of Monroe
County.
In past years, the School Board has never
made so many inquiries, questioned spending
habits and generally brought the district under
such a watchful eye of the taxpayers' money.
Doing more with less is never a comfortable
proposition but I am completely confident the
board and superintendent will achieve the best
possible results for all the school-age children
of Monroe County.

The Palace Gardens Difference

For nearly 25 years, The Palace Gardens Assisted Living Community in Homestead has been known
as a leader in providing outstanding care to seniors. While our grounds and the campus are beautiful,
there are more than a few reasons why The Palace Gardens is different from all others.

1. Continuum of Care -
The Palace Gardens is part of The Palace
Family of Senior Living Communities which
offers accommodations that meet everyone's
needs, from Independent Living and Assisted
Living, to Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation,
and even Home Health. You can rest assured
that at The Palace, your needs will be met, no
matter what may happen in the future.

2. Palace Training &
Education Center
Because our residents come first, every
employee must reflect the higher standards
of our communities. Based on Ritz-Carlton
procedures, a comprehensive orientation
program reinforces this focus. Regular training
and educational programs continue so that
residents will always receive the very best
care and services.

3. Local Ownership-
Founded in 1980 by Helen and Jacob
Shaham, The Palace is privately owned and
locally operated by these self-made individuals
who foresaw the need for quality senior
living environments. Their constant
involvement today ensures the tradition they
established for the communities and services
bearing The Palace name: only the best.

when the ray leapt out of the
water and hit her in the face.
Dube said preliminary results
from Monroe County Medical
Examiner Michael Hunter indi-
cate Zagorski died of blunt force
trauma and that the ray did not
puncture her.
Zagorski was sitting in the
front of a rented 20-foot Boston
Whaler, which was going about
25 mph, when the accident
occurred. Dube said the family
intended to fish the reef line on
the oceanside of Marathon.
"Her mother, father and sister
were onboard and performed
CPR till they got back to the
boat. By the time EMS arrived,
she was pronounced dead,"
Dube- said.
It was initially reported


Zagorksi was knocked uncon-
scious and hit her head on the
deck.
Dube said after the accident
the family returned to the home
they rent on 5th Avenue ocean-
side in Marathon. The ray laid
dead on the deck of the boat fol-,
lowing the accident.
Dube said officers on the
scene estimated the ray to be
between 80 and 100 pounds,
with a 4-foot wingspan. He said
no necropsy will be performed.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office and FWC vehicles were
on hand investigating the scene.
Dube said the officers took state-
ments from the woman's family.
"The toxicology reports have
not come back yet, so we are
waiting for that. Therefore it's
still an ongoing investigation,"
he said.
Bouck said Zagorski was a
campground manager in

Michigan, which "suited her
well because she loved ,the out-
dodrs."
He said Zagorski's husband,
Steve, had also died unexpected-
ly two years ago due to post-sur-
gery complications. The cou-
ple's two sons are grown and
married, he said.
"Both have the same sense of
humor as their parents and are
the kind of men any parent
would be proud of," Bouck said.
Bouck asked well-wishers to
"say a prayer for our family" this
Easter weekend and said mone-
tary donations can be made to
the United Hospice of Marlette,
Mich.
Spotted eagle rays are capa-
ble of leaping out of the water
when pursued or trying to shake
off scavenger fish that attach

Final hopefuls
for administrator
to get invites
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission has narrowed the search
for a new county administrator
down to four, one of whom
already works for the county.
Reggie Paros is director of
housing and community devel-
opment and has been in upper
management of Monroe County
for 20 of the 30 years he's
worked for the county.
The commission met in
Marathon Thursday to narrow
the search from 35 people that
applied for the job. The commis-
sioners decided to invite the top
four choices to the Keys for a
day of interviews and a public
meet-and-greet, specifying that
it would be at the expense of the

Cops pounce after
watching fence cut

In response to .ongoing com-
plaints of illegal activity at the
Blake Fernandez Skate Park at
Flagler and Kennedy in Key
West, Key West detectives "con-
ducted an operation" Tuesday
and quickly made three arrests,
police spokeswoman Christie
Phillips says.
The park has been closed for
extended periods the past few
months due to staffing issues. In
that time, its fence has repeatedly
been cut and otherwise vandal-
ized to gain entry.
Armed with photos of fence
repairs made earlier in the day,
detectives set up surveillance and
reportedly saw two teens cutting
the fence. Dewitt Anthony
Roberts, 19, and James Alan
Turner, 17, were charged with
felony criminal mischief.
Phillips said detectives made
contact with seven others and
subsequently arrested Otha

candidates.
The finalists besides Paros,
who with Debbie Frederick is
sharing administrator duties on
an interim basis, are:
Roman Gastesi, who
works for the Tew Cardenas law
firm office in Miami as a gov-
ernment affairs director.
Dennis W. Kelly, deputy
city manager for North Miami.
Patrick Salerno, who was
ousted from his position as city
manager for Sunrise in Broward
County in January after 18 years
on the job.
The commission did not dis-
cuss the individual applicants,
instead engaging in a heated
argument over whether to hold a
public reception for the candi-
dates. Mayor Sonny McCoy
called it a party and said he has
no interest in such a party.
"The meet and greet was
good," argued Commissioner
Dixie Spehar, referring to the
process used to hire former
administrator Tom Willi,
"because the public got a chance
to interact with the candidates."
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy said it's vital to see how
the candidates interact in a social
setting.
The commission finally
agreed to hold the get-together
the night before the interviews.
The candidates will meet with
each of the commissioners indi-
vidually, then the commission
will convene and decide which
one to hire.
Frederick said she would try
to schedule the interviews for
early April.
The post has been open since
the County Commission fired
three-year administrator Willi in
December.
Willi, with nearly a year left
on his contract, was let go with-
out cause and wvalked away with
$282,000 in severance. Since
then, former deputy administra-
tor Frederick has been acting
administrator, with Paros.
Frederick did not apply for
the job, and said she only wants
to fill in for a few months while
a new administrator is hired.
According to the job descrip-
tion, the pay ranges between
$107,000 and $150,000 '

Resumes now


number 48


Tuesday is
deadline to
seek Puto job
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis is among the latest batch
of applicants seeking to replace
City Manager Mike Puto.
Puto resigned Feb. 12 and the
city is in the midst of recruiting
his replacement. He will remain
in the job until the city hires an
interim or full-time replacement.
As of Thursday, the city had
received'48 resumes to fill the
city's top administrative position.
The City Council decided at a
Feb. 26 manager recruitment and
transition meeting to accept
resumes through March 25, at
which time City Attorney Jimmy
Morales will present them for
review and ranking.
Opinions on how to conduct
the search ranged from choosing
right then between Geotis and
former Key Colony Beach
Mayor Clyde Burnett, both of
whom expressed early interest, to
conducting a national search
using a headhunter.
Council members said them
they expect to choose a manager
within two weeks from receiving
the final resumes.
Like the initial group of appli-
cants, several have city manager
experience across the country,
while others have varying
degrees of governmental experi-
ence.
Among the newest applicants:
Geotis, who has served as
deputy city manager since
February 2005. He also serves as
ports manager for the city and as
his resume states, the City of
Marathon Marina has gone from
losing $185,000 one year to mak-
ing a profit the next.
The resume also show Geotis
has extensive background in
human resources and marketing.
He was vice president of admin-
istration and human resources
director at the Guidance Clinic of
the Middle Keys prior to being
hired by the city.
Fernandina Beach resident
Robert Meams, most recently a
management consultant in Davie.


Mearns' resume indicates city
manager experience in
Fernandina Beach, Destin,
Orange City and Davie in
Florida.
His resume says that in
Fernandina Beach, Meams man-
aged 190 employees and a com-
bined $90 million annual budget.
The city has approximately
11,000 residents.
Jack Benson, of Dillon,
Colo., who manages a 911 center
in Summit County, Colo.
Benson's resume states he
served as Dillon's town manager
from August 2002 to January
2007 and as Public Works direc-
tor for Summit County prior to
that. He was also county adminis-
trator in Clear Creek County,
Colo., for 10 years.
Michael Nagy of Fort
Morgan, Colo., who was most
recently city manager in Fort
Morgan in 2007-08. The city has a
population of 12,000. Nagy's
resume states he was a city manag-
er in Michigan for five years and a
village manager in Ohio for six,
Again, like the initial resumes,
several applicants weren't touting
vast managerial experience:
+ Homestead resident
Carolina Botello, whose resume
states she seeks an -hourly wage
of $7. She works as a cashier at a
Target in Miami.
Pembroke Pines resident
Derrick -Ball, an administrative
assistant at the Dolphin Mall in
Miami.
Joseph Guenther, a security
specialist at the Borgata Hotel
and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
Jean Berrouet, who was
most recently a security guard at
Chatter's Bar and Grill in Kansas
City, Kan.

ongoing

Deputy quits
when wiretap
is disclosed
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Following a federal drug
investigation involving the wire-
tapping of Key West phone
lines, Monroe County Court
Deputy Kenny Alonzo resigned
after the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office opened its own
internal investigation and put
Alonzo on paid administrative
leave.
"This past summer, we initi-
ated a court-authorized wiretap-
ping on several suspected drug
dealers in the Key West area,"
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion Resident Agent in Charge
Ken Davis said. "During the
wiretap, Deputy Kenny Alonzo
was intercepted calling at least
one suspected drug dealer."
According to Davis, the DEA
has cooperation with state and
federal authorities in the investi-
gation.
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin said that
prior to resigning, Alonzo was
demoted from bailiff to work-
ing the metal detector at the
entrance of the courthouse.
Alonzo had worked with the
Sheriff's Office since 1991,
Herrin said.
Davis would not comment
on details of the DEA investi-
gation or if Alonzo will face
charges.
"Our internal investigation
is not into criminal aspects of
anything," Herrin said. "Ours
revolve around [Alonzo] being
on the wiretap itself, and possi-
ble narcotics issues."
Asked who issued the war-
rant for a wiretap, State
Attorney's Office spokesman
Matthew Helmerich declined to
talk about a specific investiga-
tion.
"In a general sense, law
enforcement agencies come to
us to obtain search and wire
warrants," he said. .'

Schools face tax vote


November
ballot shapes
budget plan
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

In November, Florida voters
will have the chance to give
themselves one of the most radi-
cal tax cuts in state history by
deciding whether to ax property
taxes that pay for schools.
The cut could have a tremen-
dous impact in Monroe County,
where soaring property taxes
have caused increasing financial
stress for home and business
owners, but have also helped
Keys schools maintain a healthy
fund balance even in the wake of
$1.5 million in state budget cuts.
Florida's Taxation and Budget
Reform Commission decided
Monday to put the proposed con-
stitutional amendment, which
calls for cutting all state-required
school district levied taxes, on the
Nov. 4 ballot.
The amendment requires 60
percent voter approval to pass.
In Monroe County, where
high property values require the
School District to raise more
money locally than most other
districts, the amendment's impact
would be intensified for both
property owners and schools.
In 2007-08, taxes, levied by the
Monroe County School Board
totaled about $2.95 per $1,000 of
assessed property value, meaning
the owner of a $500,000 home
paid about $1,475 to Keys public
schools.
Provisions of the proposed
amendment would require that
tax rate to be slashed by almost
half, saving the same homeowner


about $700.
Reductions would take effect
in 2010 and save property owners
an average of about 25 percent on
their property tax bills statewide,
and even more in Monroe
County.
The cuts would also mean
Florida's schools would face an
estimated $9.3 billion funding
shortfall for the 2010-11 school
year, according to the watchdog
group Florida TaxWatch.
Almost half the revenue Keys
public schools raise locally
would be eliminated, the group
said.
If the cuts were applied to its
current budget, the School
District would lose about $34
million, or about 37 percent of its
overall budget, critics of the plan
say.
"It would really be good for
our taxpayers," School Board
member Andy Griffiths said, "but
I'm very skeptical of getting
those dollars back."
The commission hasn't said
exactly how the state can make
up the funding shortfall, but has
suggested imposing a 1-cent
statewide sales tax, eliminating
certain sales tax exemptions and
making significant cuts to the
state budget.
The commission says a 1-cent
sales tax would generate about
$3.9 billion in revenue in 2010.
But school officials say sales
tax revenue is less predictable
than property tax revenue, and
that the commission's estimate is
unrealistic, especially in a reced-
ing economy.
"Let's be optimistic and say
$3.5 billion, where do you get the
other $4.5 billion?" Griffiths
asked.

Sugarloaf firefighters
receive huge grant

The Sugarloaf Key Volunteer
Fire Department has been award-
ed a Federal Emergency
Management Agency grant for
$1.58 million as part of the
agency's Staffing for Adequate
Fire and Emergency Response
(SAFER) program, FEMA said
Friday.
The. grant ,aims to, assist the


department's staffing and deploy-
ment capabilities to respond to
emergencies whenever they occur.
SAFER is part of the
Department of Homeland
Security's Assistance to
Firefighters Grant program, a
component in a comprehensive
and coordinated effort to strength-
en the nation's overall level of pre-
paredness and ability to respond to
fire and fire-related hazards.
The monetary award is a five-
year grant. :


"There is a gap there,"
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said of the significant sum of
money that would not be replaced
by the sales tax.
Acevedo said school officials
are considering that potential gap
while drafting the 2008-09 budg-
et.
"We're working on this com-
ing year's budget' as we speak. It
will be a reduction in the amount*
of services we provide. What
we're going to try to do is hold
schools as harmless as possible,
meaning we'll make cuts at the
district level first," he said,
adding, "It would be impossible
to say it's not going to affect
schools at all because they are
such a significant portion of our
budget."
Griffiths said he also has con-
cerns about how the sales tax rev-
enue would be distributed among
Florida's 67 school districts.
"My questions would be how
much of the penny sales tax do
we get? Is it a one to one? If we
lost X amount of dollars from
[property tax revenue] do we get
that exact amount back from the
state?"
He said the amendment would
provide much-needed relief to
property taxpayers, but that if
property tax funding for schools
is eliminated, it should be phased
out over time, not be cut com-
pletely in one year.

Consolidated sewer system


Teen reportedly shoots
flare gun at deputy

A 14-year-old from Big Pine
Key as jailed Wednesday,
accused of firing a flare gun at a
deputy. An 18-year-old was also
arrested for reportedly helping
him hide from authorities.
Craig Veitinger, the younger
one, is charged with resisting
arrest with violence, aggravated
assault on a law enforcement offi-
cer, discharging a firearm, use of
a firearm while committing a
felony, possession of a firearm by
someone under 18 and possession
of tobacco by someone under 18.


The other one, Jose Roth, is
charged with resisting arrest
without violence and harboring
Veitinger, who was a runaway
reported missing by his mother.
Deputy Becky Herrin from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office said the arrests stem from
Deputy David Chavka doing
surveillance at a house on
Oettley Drive on Big Pine
because he had information
Veitinger was hiding out there.
Veitinger and three other
boys reportedly left the house at
4:20 p.m. and when Chavka
tried to catch him is when
Veitinger reportedly fired the
flare gun.

Feasibility study
looks at Sugarloaf
to big Pine Key
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Nearly -a decade ago,
Monroe .County officials toyed
with the idea of one central
sewer system serving all of the
Keys. Though some systems
have been installed and others
are in various stages of con-
struction, it's not too late to take
a look at a central system for the
Lower Keys, officials say.
At Wednesday's County
Commission meeting in
Marathon, County Engineer
David Koppel said the county
and Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority are looking at the fea-
sibility of one system serving
Lower Sugarloaf to Big Pine.
"Staff felt we could save a
lot of money by consolidating
the systems," he said. "The
Aqueduct has concluded we can
save initially $11 million in
capital costs by doing so."
All told, he said. the move
would save taxpayers and esti-
mated $26 million in capital
costs and yearly service fees.
"This is something that's
long overdue," Mayor Sonny
McCoy said.


The Aqueduct Authority is
the lead agency for the con-
struction and operation of sew-
ers in unincorporated Monroe
County except in Key Largo,
which has its own elected sewer
district.
The central sewer proposal,
Koppel said, would be up for
commission scrutiny at its
meeting next month in Key
West. The region it would serve
includes some of the last islands
in the Keys to address sewer-
system upgrades.
A system serving Big
Coppitt, Geiger, Shark and
Rockland keys is under con-
struction. Baypoint, the next
island west of Lower Sugarloaf,
already has its own system.
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy noted that Koppel's
proposal would take in big Pine
and No Name keys, both of
which are rural and somewhat
spread out and will be expen-
sive to sewer.
In action by the commission
Wednesday:
It approved an April 16
public hearing to adopt a new
fire fee to pay for staffing and
equipment for county fire facil-
ities. The assessment, if
approved, could add more than
$300 to the tax bills of home-
owners in unincorporated


Monroe County.
It approved reserving 16
affordable housing permit allo-
cations for the owner of
Skeeter's Marine on Big Pine
Key to build his proposed Caya
Place. He needs to work out
environmental mitigation as
well as obtain all necessary per-
mits before construction can
begin.
It approved the extension
of Land Authority Director
Mark Rosch's employment con-
tract for the next three years.
+ It approved the appoint-
ment of former County
Commissioner David Rice to
the Sheriff's Office's Shared
Asset Forfeiture Fund Board.
+ It directed county staff to
look into the possibility of cre-
ating a county mooring field in
Boca Chica Harbor.
It consented to delaying
the replacement" of county Fire
Chief Wayne Hinnant, who
resigned last week. Acting
County Administrator Debbie
Frederick asked for the two-
month delay to save money.
It allowed Commissioner
Dixie Spehar and former
Planning Commissioner Sherry
Popham to be represented by
county staff attorneys. Both
women face complaints filed
with the Florida Ethics
Commission.

Commission
wants more
public input
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson says there's a lot of
confusion over a proposal to add
a penny to Monroe County's bed
tax to pay for affordable hous-
ing.
Tourists already pay 4 cents
on the dollar; three go to adver-
tising the Keys and the fourth
goes for capital costs to offset
impacts of the industry.
"In my estimation we are in
an affordable housing crisis,"
McPherson said Friday. "It's
even more critical now that units
are being taken off line because
of rampant foreclosures."
He was responding to criti-
cism that came a day earlier
when County Commissioner
George Neugent opposed voting
on the proposal without public
input.
"I take offense that this has
not been openly discussed,"
Neugent said of the tax proposed
by Key West's mayor, who also


m 0 M 1
sits on the Tourist Development
Council. "It's our tax, our tax
money and it's never been
brought back to the TDC or the
County Commission. I take
offense that this has not been
publicly vetted."
"The only way this can be
enacted in the first place is
through the County
Commission," McPherson said.
The County Commission
Thursday approved a resolution
stating it would take no position
on the proposed tax until a pub-
lic hearing is held. The motion
came on the heels of an earlier
vote to outright oppose the tax,
which passed unanimously dur-
ing the commission's regular
meeting Wednesday.
By the next morning, howev-
er, during a workshop to cull a
list of county administrator
applicants, the matter was resur-
rected when County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton asked the com-
mission to revisit its Wednesday
decision. Hutton said she had-
mistakenly told them the tax was
added to a bill before the
Legislature.
The proposal has not been
added to any bill or found a


sponsor.
McPherson got a lot of heat
last .year when he went to
Tallahassee on his own and tried
to get a bed-tax increase
approved. Some vocal oppo-
nents from the lodging industry
spoke against the idea.
"So that any one industry
wouldn't feel picked on,"
McPherson said Friday, "we
came up with four taxes: a bed
tax, a' real estate transfer tax, a
sin tax and a dedicated millage."
The Key West City
Commission approved the four-
tax proposal in December, and
McPherson took it to state Rep.
Ron Saunders.
"Ron suggested moving just
one forward," McPherson said,
"I suggested the sin tax, but he
picked the bed tax because
there's a structure, in place for
collecting and distributing it."
McPherson said he's taken to
heart complaints that three coun-
ty commissioners tend to vote as
a bloc by writing the proposal so
that a super-majority of the com-
mission would be necessary to
pass it.
"Nobody could blame the
gang of three because it would
take four votes," the mayor said.

Verge wants 'Vandy' deadline


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West City Commissioner
Bill Verge wants the City
Commission to set a deadline of
April 1 to garner $2.3 million still
needed to sink the USS Hoyt S.
Vandenberg as an artificial reef
seven miles off Key West.
The city holds the title to the
vessel, and if the deadline is not
met, "the city will turn the title
over to the lending institutions
and the ship will be sold for
scrap," Verge wrote in a letter to
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Chairman Rodney Barreto.
Verge said he'll ask his fellow
commissioners to approve the,
deadline when they meet April 1,
the deadline he wants..
He said he's looking to the
state for the money, specifically
the Office of Tourism, Trade and


Economic Development. It's the
last resort "unless some sugar
daddy steps up and pays the rest."
"The state hasn't put one dime
into this yet," Verge told the
Keynoter. "And yet they're the
main beneficiary on this."
According to Verge, the city's
Tallahassee lobbyist firm,
Gray/Robinson Attorneys at Law,
is trying to make it happen.
"We have talked to [the
tourism office] about that, and we
are waiting for a response," said
Ed Scales, a local attorney with
Gray/Robinson.
According to Verge, the
Vandenberg is only a piece of the
state's new tourism plan.
"The state would like to sink
10 more ships around Florida to
keep the tourists here for a longer
period of time," he said.
The city deadline was set


because of towing limitations.
"Time is of the essence due to
towing dates and hurricane sea-
son," Verge wrote. "The Coast
Guard will not allow a tow after
June 1," because hurricane sea-
son begins.
On top of the city's financial
worries, the Department of
Environmental Protection intro-
duced more mitigative require-
ments for the ship before it can be
scuttled and made an artificial
reef. Those include, according to
Verge, dry-docking the ship twice
to clean the hull before it's scut-
tled as an artificial reef.
With a total cost of now more
than $8 million, the project is
being financed by the city of Key
West, Monroe County, the county
Tourist Development Council,
U.S. Maritime Administration,


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission, National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration and local banks.
The city, county and TDC have
pledged the funds, but no transac-
tions will occur until the 520-foot
ship is on the ocean bottom.
"Of course, the TDC has $1
million allocated to the ship,
which cannot be released until the
ship goes down as an artificial
reef," TDC Director Harold
Wheeler said.
Asked if the TDC would con-
sider contributing more, Wheeler
said, "We feel as though the mil-
lion we've invested in it is a good
investment."
Not only does the vessel need
to sink, it needs to sink correctly.
The 510-foot Spiegel Grove
ran into complications in 2002


when it was sunk in 134 feet of
water near Dixie Shoal off Key
Largo. That vessel unintentional-
ly rolled upside down. It's since
been righted.
"If these guys can't pull it off,
they get no funds," Verge said.
Reefmakers is contracted to
scuttle the vessel for Artificial
Reefs of the Florida Keys.
Managers of the 10-year proj-
ect say the 14,300-ton former
military vessel will be towed
from its shipyard in Norfolk, Va.,
where it's been cleaned out and
prepared for scuttling.
Joe Weatherby of Reefmakers
announced a sinking date of May
15 in late January.

County boatlift


license in question


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A ne~w county license for
boatlift installers will be chal-

a Tavernier marine contractor.
"Several of us [marine con-

Monroe County Contractors
Examining Board in Marathon,
said John Annesser, a contractor
with Atlantic Davits and Boatlifts
of the Keys.
"The county is allowing people
without proper qualifications to
install boat lifts," Annesser said.
Annesser said he has not been
able to learn how the creation of
the county's "marine contractor-
boatlift only" license was author-

Two people reportedly were
issued the licenses.

reached for comment.
The license 'reportedly
requires three years of experience
installing boatlifts.
Some areas do not require a
license to install boat lifts,


Annesser said, which makes it
highly difficult to verify an appli-
cant's verbal claim that he or she
has experience in the field.
"Boat lifts require quite a bit
of structural knowledge," he said.
"Installing a lift means working
with the dock, pilings and sea-
wall. To do it properly really
requires experience."
Failure. of a boatlift while
bearing a vessel's weight could
be catastrophic, Annesser says.
"If the installer doesn't know
how to work with the seawall or
dock, the lift could collapse," he
said. "If someone is near it at the
time, it could cause serious
injury."
Annesser said he plans to dis-
tribute photographs of boatlifts
that have failed at the Contractors
Examining Board meeting.
Contractors also are con-
cerned that the boatlift permit
could allow holders to perform
more complicated jobs, such as
piling installation.
The Contractors Examining
Board meets in open session at 9
a.m. Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center, according to
information available at press
time.

Coral comment deadline is May 6


More protection
for two species
being considered
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Conservation groups and
commercial fishermen agree on a
key element of coral protection:
Focus on water quality.
"It is clearly the human inter-
ference, particularly diseases,
sediment and algal grow ... that
are the greatest inhibitors to the
species recovery," members of
the Florida Coastal and Ocean
Coalition wrote in remarks to the
federal government.
Elkhom and staghom corals
have been declared threatened
species under the Endangered
Species Act and, as such, deserve
protection of the corals' "critical


habitat."
Those waters essentially all
waters in the Keys that provide a
rocky surface for the corals to
grow on, down to about 120 feet
in depth.
What that designation means
to Keys waters has not been
determined.
Staff with the National
Marine Fisheries Service will
take written comment on the
move to protect critical habitat
until May 6.
A team working with the
agency is preparing a recovery
plan for elkhom and staghorn
corals expected to be released
late this year.
Any new regulatory action
considered under the critical-
habitat proposals would have to
go through the public hearing
process.
Waters along the Florida coast


through Palm Beach County also
have been designated as critical
habitat, along with waters in the
U.S. Virgin Islands.
"We have a court-ordered date
for finalizing critical habitat for
these species, which is Nov. 30,
2008," Fisheries Service special-
ist wrote Sarah Heberling in an e-
mail.
"The recovery plan serves as a
road map for species recovery -
it lays out where we need to go
and how best to get there through
prioritized, site-specific'recovery
actions," she wrote.
The Coastal and Ocean
Coalition which includes"
eight groups, including Reef
Relief and The Ocean
Conservancy said it wants any
recovery project to address major
sources of pollution, including
sewage outfalls, dredging and
filling, and agricultural runoff.
The Florida Keys Com-
mercial Fishermen's Association


pointed out in its comments that
"NOAA biologists have estimat-
ed that more than 90 percent of
[branching] corals have been lost
because of 'bleaching due to ris-
ing sea temperatures, tropical
storm damage and disease."'
That means the government
should tackle those problems
before focusing on relatively
small impacts like those from
commercial fishing, noted the
fishermen's group.
"The process of fishing com-
mercially is no more damaging
than the actions of user groups
which incidentally 'take' corals
by direct human contact,
trash/debris, vessels and
anchors," wrote executive direc-
tor Scott Zimmerman.
Fishermen and commercial
dive operators are wary of poten-
tial regulations that could seek to
limit access to some areas of
coral growth.

Sewer extension

up for council vote


Contract change
for wastewater
also on agenda
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
A resolution sponsored by
Councilman Don Vasil, calling
for various state entities to allow
residents and businesses addi-
tional time to meet the state's
July 1, 2010, deadline to meet
advanced sewage treatment
standards.
The resolution states the city
has committed to complete a
central sewer system for all
Marathon residential and com-
mercial customers, but that
"despite the city's best efforts,
there may be some portions of
the city that may not be connect-
ed ... to the sewer system by July
2010.
Commercial properties oper-
ating package plants in Monroe
County have already begun
receiving letters from the state
regarding compliance with
advanced wastewater standards.
State Rep. Ron Saunders is
on record saying local govern-
ments shouldn't ask for an
extension because it could jeop-
ardize future funding.
A resolution authorizing a
change order to the Lanzo


Construction Co. contract in the
amount of $8.15 million to pay
amounts due for performance
and payment bonds and insur-
ance for area six (Coco Plum) of
the sewer project.
Lanzo submitted a combined
bid for areas four and six of the
project, which was lower than
the price for each service area
separately.
The resolution states "the
change order will allow Lanzo to
be reimbursed for the bonds and
insurance on service area six
without issuing a notice to pro-
ceed." The deadline to authorize
Lanzo to begin construction on
Coco Plum is June 17.
Approving a license agree-
ment with the Education
Coalition for Monroe County by
which the city will permit the
organization to operate a con-
cession stand adjacent to the
skate park.
The resolution says the coali-
tion has been vital in supporting
the skate park and to "support
skating programs and other
efforts, the coalition would like
to sell food and beverages ... on a
year-round basis from a shed to
be located next to the skate park."
A resolution to pursue
measures to become a "green
local government."
A city manager report
including discussions on system'
development charges and a
notice to proceed with sewering

No-take zones get review


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A decade ago, the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary
enacted the most detailed marine
zoning plan in U.S. waters.
A progress report on the con-
cept will be outlined at a daylong
session beginning at 9 a.m.
Tuesday at Key Colony Beach
City Hall. The workshop, spon-
sored by the Keys sanctuary's
Advisory Council, is 'open to the
public.
No plans to change the existing
network of no-take zones will be
proposed at the session, sanctuary
Superintendent Dave Score said.
"Ten years later, we want to
update the [Sanctuary Advisory
Council] on what we know about
how the zones are performing, on
whether they're working," Score
said. "After 10 years, we have a
lot of information we can sum-
marize."
Several recently appointed
members of the advisory council
were not actively involved in the
process to create the 3,500-
square-mile marine sanctuary,
then the largest in the nation.
After years of development,
the network of Sanctuary
Preservation Areas and
Ecological Reserves was intro-
duced in late 1997. It became the
template for other marine sanctu-
aries in the U.S. and overseas.
The SPAs essentially were
intended to protect fish and coral
life at reef popular reef sites.
People can boat and dive in the
zones but cannot fish or collect.
The reserves are larger areas
- one in the Lower Keys, and


two in the Dry Tortugas -
intended to preserve a sizable
section of the marine ecosystem.
They also have no-take rules but
are open to boating and diving.
The sanctuary recently went
through its five-year review
process and made the decision
not to pursue new regulations or
changes to the marine zones,
Score said.
"During the next five years,
we will take feedback and. con-
sider where and how we allot our
resources," Score said.
Any significant changes


*


would require public notices and
hearings, he said.
Tuesday's workshop will hear
an expert on how the Australia's
Great Barrier Reef is managed,
and its progress.
Presenters will provide
overviews of the science of
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary zoning and its relation-
ships with benthic communities,
reef fish, spiny lobsters, and
socioeconomic issues.
A public-comment period will
be offered at 11:15 a.m.
Comments also will be taken dur-
ing group breakout group ses-
sions from 2 to 3 p.m.

State calls for ROGO rehearing


Agency says
Miller's ruling
not correct
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The state Department of
Community Affairs on
Wednesday filed a motion for a
rehearing on Monroe County
Circuit Court Judge Wayne
Miller's Feb. 20 ruling that a sys-


tern of allocating building per-
mits expired nearly six years ago.
' According to DCA, the
judge's decision in a case brought
by the owner of the Southernmost
House in Key West should be
reevaluated to determine if it's
consistent with hurricane evacua-
tion safety standards and city
building guidelines. In its motion,
the state claims it must review
"all transient rental permits
issued within Key West...."


Under the rate-of-g:

rowth- "Our view is that the city
ber of shouldn't have been directed to
ns are issue more building allocations
ricane where it's not warranted," DCA
spokesman Jon Peck told the
expired Keynoter.
here is Matilde Ramos, owner of the
decision Southernmost House at 1400
city to Duval St., doesn't have ROGO
vants. permits for the 14 transient rental
Keys' units she operates there. The city
ne "is says she needs them, plus another
sed on five for a guesthouse at 1401
h, will Duval St.
The Southernmost House has
operated with two transient rental
licenses since it converted from a
private residence to a guesthouse
and museum in 2001. Ramos
sued, saying the ROGO require-
ment doesn't come into play
because there is no ROGO.
Miller's decision sided with
her.
Tuesday, the Key West City
Commission postponed voting on
an agreement that would have
sidestepped his decision specifi-
cally for Ramos. A special meet-
ing has been scheduled for Friday
from 5 to 7 p.m. at Old City Hall.
The settlement on the table
would allow Ramos all necessary
licenses, permits and certificates
of occupancy to run the
Southernmost House and the five
units across the street.
The agreement would also
permanently dissolve Ramos'
proposal to covert the museum
and guesthouse into a 150-seat
restaurant. It would also drop two
other lawsuits Ramos has filed
against the city.
Neighbors of the Southern-
most House say they don't take
issue with the guesthouse, but
don't want the restaurant propos-


al to reappear. They also say the
hotel isn't operating under the
city's noise ordinance and an
agreed-to curfew for weddings
and events.
"They have been in violation
of those conditions in a constant
way," Molly Goodwin said.
City commissioners decided
to review the settlement after
hearing the DCA's concerns.
"The DCA still has certain
oversight," City Attorney Shawn
Smith said.
Ramos' attorney, Michael
Halpern, said its "nonsensical" the
DCA is concerned over something
a judge ruled doesn't exist, main-
ly, a permit allocation system.
"The DCA's position is certain-
ly baffling to me," he told the
commission. "That order may
have been against the city, but it's
the best thing to happen to the
city."
Halpern maintains Miller's
ruling means the City
Commission can regulate devel-
opment on its own free will rather
than under state oversight.
Following Miller's ruling that
ROGO no longer exists, commis-
sioners on Feb. 29 put a halt on
market-rate development projects
for six months.
In the meantime, they plan to
hash out a solution to regulate
development, or appeal the ruling.
"The building permit alloca-
tion system is an integral compo-
nient of the city of Key West's
adopted comprehensive plan and
implementing land-use regula-
tions and directly related to hurri-
cane evacuation clearance times
protecting the health, safety and
welfare of the citizens of Key
West," the DCA motion reads.

Fort Zach to begin structural upgrades


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The first phase of a stabiliza-
tion project to improve Fort
Zachary Taylor in Key West will
begin this week, according to
park managers.
Bender and Associates
Architects is working with the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection in
overseeing renovations of the his-
toric fort. In 2005, a team of
DEP-supervised planning con-
sultants, led by Bender, drew up
the master plan.
Designated a National
Historic Landmark in 1973, the
state-owned Fort Zachary Taylor
boasts the largest collection of
Civil War artifacts in the world,
architect Bert Bender said.
The fort, at the end Southard
Street, was one of many con-
structed in the mid-1800s to
"defend the nation's southeastern


Key West residents who have
been fighting to retain the pine
trees at Fort Zachary Taylor State
Park in Key West park are cele-
brating in the streets, or maybe
on the beach.
State Rep. Ron Saunders on
Wednesday said an agreement
with the Department of
Environmental protection will
stop the Florida Park Service
from removing the Australian
pines from the park unless
they're dead or become a public
hazard.
The grassroots organization
Save Our Pines has been work-
ing for several years to exempt
the park, at the end of Southard
Street, from the state's policy of
removing the trees from state-
owned land.
Australian pines, which are
not really pines at all, are consid-
ered an invasive exotic species.
They also have shallow root sys-
tems, meaning they can blow
down easily in hurricanes.
Florida outlawed planting the
trees, also known as casuarinas,
in 1990, lumping them with
melaleuca and Brazilian pepper


coastline," its Web site states. The
fort played major roles in the
Civil War and Spanish-American
War.
The first step in the project
will be replacing a "failing con-
crete roof structure from the bar-
racks building" with a lighter
wooden-trussed roof, park man-
agers say. That phase of the proj-
ect was awarded to Contracting
Specialist Inc.
"The west wall is in danger of
collapsing," Bender said. "It's
been roped off for years. It needs
extensive masonry repair -
brick replacement, reconstruction
of the openings. The roof struc-
ture system will replicate the
early 20th century."
The $18 million master plan
also includes new museum
exhibits and archeological
resources, but y6u can't expect
those finishing touches until


as invasives known to overpower
native vegetation. Since then, the
state has aggressively sought to
eradicate all three species from
state-owned land.
Residents have argued the
trees provide much-needed
shade and a peaceful ambiance
that could not be duplicated with
native species.
According to a statement
released by Saunders, a memo-
randum of understanding
between DEP and Saunders was
finalized this week. In the agree-
ment, he says, DEP "agrees to
remove existing pines in the park
only if the pines have died, are
toppled by windstorms or consti-
tute a public safety hazard. The
memorandum will be incorporat-
ed into the park's management
plan."
In October, DEP representa-
tives were hammered by resi-
dents at a workshop aimed at
presenting a proposed new man-
agement plan for the park that
included eventual eradication of
the trees. According to the plan,
10 percent of them would be
removed annually and replaced
-with native species. .


"way down the road," Bender
said. Future plans include a visi-
tor center.
About $900,000 is dedicated
to the project so far. That's a good
indication of the projects time-
line, according to park Manager
Mark Knapke.
"It all depends on funding," he
said. "I would predict the project
is going to take several years."


Just to stabilize the fort's bar-
racks, Knapke said, it would take
about $3 million in private and
public funds.
But the project will result in
finally opening those barracks to
visitors, offering a better interpre-
tation of the fort and its history.
Built as a three-tier, brick and
stone structure, the fort com-
manded four ship channels in the


Key West Harbor, Bender's exec-
utive summary states. It also
hosted operations during the
Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.
The renovations follow a 2006
preservation project focused on
Fort Jefferson, a 19th Century
.island fort in the Dry Tortugas. It
served primarily as a Union mili-
tary prison during the Civil War.

Schooner Wharf repairs to go forward


Fire-damaged
second floor
to be removed
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Repairs on the Schooner
Wharf Bar will move forward
after demolition of its burned-out
second floor now that the Key
West Bight Management District
Board has approved it.
A report commissioned by the
board also recommends replacing
the top third of the walls around
the interior dining area.
The second floor has been sit-
ting unused for eight years after a
fire severely damaged one side
and the first-floor roof under-
neath. Further inspection showed
other damage to concrete walls
surrounding the interior dining
area on the first floor.


Evalena Worthington, owner
of the bar at the Historic Seaport,
said during Wednesday's Bight
Board meeting she looks forward
to a repaired building. The fire
damage has caused leaking into
the dining area, she said.
Worthington said she hopes the
bar can remain open during the
repairs.
Demolition of the top floor is
expected to close the nearby
boardwalk for about a day, said
Marilyn Wilbarger, Key West's
property manager. The disruption
and costs of repairing parts of the
first floor walls are more tenta-
tive.
"First thing we have to do is
get the burnt-out building on top
of it," she said. "Until then we
can't even pin down our costs."
The city must also work to
minimize those costs. Federal
flood-zone building restrictions


could be triggered if too much
money is required for repairs.
Such restrictions would require
rebuilding the entire building
much higher.
The foundation and bottom
two-thirds of the concrete walls
are still sound in the 59-year-old
building, according to the inspec-
tion report by Florida Building
Consultants Inc. The concrete in
the top third has visibly cracked,
as the steel reinforcements within
have rusted and expanded.
The walls can be mostly sal-
vaged, said Paul Semmes, the
report's author. But in question-
ing by Bight Board members,
said he could not guarantee dem-
olition wouldn't reveal further
damage.
The board voted 7-0 to
approve the demolition.
Not every vote went so swim-
mingly, as some board members
charged a tenant with excessive
profiteering on a subtenant. At


issue is an art gallery looking to
sublet the Flagler Building at
Caroline and Margaret streets.
Board member Kathy Ovide
said she was upset the building's
current tenant, Conch Tour Train
Inc., could charge unrestricted
rates to the subtenant. The gallery
will pay more than the Conch
Tour Train does for the total
space. Conch Tour Train owner


Ed Swift built the building and
depreciation is factored into the
company's rent, Wilbarger said.
Ovide and Bethel voted
against the lease agreement. The
other five board members
approved it.
The board also approved seek-
ing letters of interest for an
affordable housing project at 908
Caroline St., now a parking lot.

and main pool.
Long known as a family- and
group-friendly island getaway,
Hawks Cay is maintaining that
focus, albeit with a more
upscale, modem vibe. The decor
is casual yet elegant, with cream
and earth tones dominating the
color palette. A new rum bar
adds a splash of color to the open
lobby.
A curvy pool with a near-
infinity edge dominates the


waterfront behind the main
building. The resort's other four
pools, including the adults-only
tranquility pool and children's
pirate ship pool, have. also been
redone.
The 85-slip marina with its
complement of fishing charters

CASH CATCH: Marine Bank of the Florida Keys sent its
Money Machine to the recent Key Largo Chili Cook-off,
where 20 people. won 20 seconds in the machine to get
their share of cash. More than half donated all or part of
their catch to the Rotary's scholarship fund.


Babycakes' owner Shanann
Mitchell plans to expand
her hours.

Babycakes-
Islamorada
Moms in the Upper. Keys
will be pleased to see the
opening Babycakes (mile
marker 80) in the Gallena
Shopping Mall in
Islamorada. Shanann
Mitchell decided to open the
store, which carries essen-
tials for children ages new-
born to 7. after having her
son two and a half years ago.
"After I had my son Jake.
I realized that we needed a
different kind of baby store
around here," she said,
"something that would offer
apparel and gifts that
weren't geared toward the
tourists."
Mitchell has been in retail
for 17 years. She was oiigi-
nally going to open a differ-
ent type of boutique, but
after she saw the challenges
of shopping for a baby in the
Keys, she changed her mind.
"The idea of my store
was to be there for the local
mom. ,"she said. "This way
they can avoid the whole
Internet thing or the trip to
Miami with a little kid. I
geared my store to the moms
that are into the hip, new and
trendy type stuff. That was
my vision for this."
One item that has been a
,huge seller is the Fleurville
diaper bags, which are high-
end and eco-friendly.
Babycakes is open from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday
through Friday, but Mitchell
plans to extend hours in the
future. Call 664-2996.

The resort's extensive facelift
began in August. While the
1960s-era main hotel buildings
were closed, guest services
moved to other buildings as they
continued to serve visitors stay-
ing in the resort's privately
owned villas.

Rental villa upgrades
Hawks Cay has 225 privately
owned villas in its rental pro-
gram. As part of the resort's
makeover, villa owners have
been asked to renovate the units
so they have a cohesive look and
feel. Renovation of about half of
those units should be complete
by the end of summer, says sales
and marketing coordinator
Jennifer Dinan.
The renovations are crucial,
Bello says, to maintain the stan-
dards of Preferred Hotels and
Resorts, the group of independ-
ently owned upscale properties
to which Hawks Cay belongs.
Hawks Cay is owned by
Northview Hotel Group.
Not all owners have agreed to
the full renovation; those that
didn't will still receive some
upgrades, Dinan says, and will
be part of a separate rental pro-
gram, known as Duck Key
Villas.

the resort's amenities.

Culture of service
When next season arrives,
Human Resources Director
Alice Brennan would love to
have -an all-local workforce
ready to greet guests.
With a workforce of about
200 in the summer and up to 300
at the peak of season, Hawks
Cay is one of the Middle Keys'
largest employers. The company
offers housing either dormito-
ry-style or villa for 110 of its
employees. Health insurance is
available after 90 days.
While locals make up the
core of the resort's staff,
Brennan says, Hawks Cay -
like many other resorts in South
Florida also hires under the
auspices of a visa program that
allows foreign workers to come
to the United States for a set
period of time. Hospitality work-
ers from Brazil, Romania,
France and a dozen other coun-
tries mix with longtime locals
and Keys transplants in Hawks
Cay's ranks.
Brennan, who came to Hawks
Cay from Islamorada's Cheeca
Lodge in October, hopes "relent-
less recruitment" can lessen -
even eliminate the resort's
reliance on that visa program.
Hawks Cay wants all of its
employees to know the commu-
nity and environment in which
they live and work. Local
knowledge is a key component
of Hawks Cay's philosophy of
"engaged hospitality," Bello and


Brennan say. Some of that can
come from training what time
the sun sets, for instance, an
example of something everyone
is expected to know but
they'd much prefer that knowl-
edge come from personal experi-
ence.
While some in the hospitality
industry put a premium on a
prospective employee's resume,
Hawks Cay is much more con-
cerned about the attitude some-
one brings to the job, Brennan
says. Love of hospitality the
desire to help create a memo-
rable vacation will trump
experience in nearly every situa-
tion.
Her mantra: "Hire for behav-
ior and train for skill."
Training, Brennan says, is the
No. 1 priority. Resort employees
start with an intense two-day ori-
entation program followed by
ongoing training sessions to
build technical and service
skills.
Employee committees will
plan events both on and off
resort grounds, so employees
can connect to the community
and experience many of the
same activities that guests do.
The goal is a knowledgeable,
flexible, well-trained workforce
ready to roll with the ebb and
flow of the resort business.
At the end of a guest's stay,
Bello says, the level of service
guests received will stick with
them as long, if not longer, as the
beauty of their surroundings.

OceanGrafix, the first company

new list of charts from the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration.
NOAA maintains more than

ly changing information also
necessitates new editions.
Through its relationship with
NOAA, OceanGrafix is able to
offer the new paper charts from
two to eight weeks before their

The board of Keys Federal

The bylaw, adopted by the
National Credit Union Adminis-
tration several months ago,
reflects the method of notification
the Keys credit union has used for
years. But by incorporating it into
the bylaws, it formally memorial-

Look out for dangerous lionfish


Researchers say
they'll likely
show up here
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Bahamian divers considered
the first sightings of lionfish at
their reefs a novelty, a rare
chance to see the magnificently
plumed fish far. from its native
waters.
Five years later, they want
them gone.
"The first lionfish sighting in
the Bahamas was in 2004," said
Lad Akins, special projects direc-
tor for the Reef Environmental
Education Foundation. "Since,
the population has gone from a
few individuals to an incredible
explosion in abundance and dis-
tribution."
That must not happen in the
Florida Keys, he said.
Lionfish are native to Indio-
Pacific waters, ranging from
Australia to Malaysia and north
of Japan.
With its maroon-and-while
stripes and a porcupine-like array
of feathered spines and fins, the


lionfish is one of the most visual-
ly dazzling fish in the ocean.
It also can deliver a toxic sting
that can make humans severely
ill.
"Aside from the impact on the
native marine environment, there
is a serious potential of -health
risk to humans," Akins said.
"There are quite a few cases of
people having been stung in the
Bahamas."
Lionfish now can be found in
waters warmed by the Gulf
Stream current all along the U.S.
Atlantic coast, although none has
been seen in the Florida Keys, so
far.
Akins and a team conducted a
lionfish-collection project in
February 2007 in waters near
Nassau in the Bahamas. During a
week of daylong diving, they col-
lected 20 lionfish.
A second project in
November, making only about
half the number of dives, collect-
ed 216 lionfish.
"We were limited by bottom
time, not the number of lionfish
on the reef," Akins said. "We had
leave lionfish we could see out in

LIONFISH / From 26

open."
About three dozen people
attended a Thursday workshop in
Key West, part of a public-aware-
ness campaign being mounted
locally.
With the species apparently
thriving in the Bahamas and
Caribbean, and in places along
the U.S. coast, it seems inevitable
that they will turn up in the Keys,
Akins said.
"We want to be ahead of the
game," he said. "We want early
detection and a rapid response if
these things show up here."
Five years ago, a REEF effort
backed by the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary cap-
tured several Pacific batfish from
Key Largo's Molasses Reef. The
project succeeded at preventing
the species from proliferating,
Akins said.
"It's a scary situation," said
Cory Walter, director for the
Marine Ecosystem Event
Response and Assessment project
at the Keys Mote Marine
Laboratory. "Lionfish are getting
closer, and we need to protect our
native species."
Spectacular to behold, lionfish
are a favorite of saltwater aquari-
um owners. The first lionfish
seen in U.S. waters almost cer-
tainly were aquarium fish that
were released or escaped, Akins


said.
"They are voracious predators
that can eat almost anything,"
Akins said. "When they start to
get big in an aquarium, they eat
all the other fish."
One theory blames Hurricane
Andrew for freeing a half-dozen
lionfish from a Key Biscayne
aquarium.
Stomach-content analysis
from lionfish taken in the
Bahamas showed juvenile snap-
per and grouper in addition to
reef fish, along with crabs and
lobster.
"I've never seen a seahorse in
the Bahamas," Akins said. "But I
saw a seahorse in the stomach of
a lionfish in the Bahamas."
Lionfish do not attack
humans, but they also do not flee
from divers encroaching on their
territory. With their poisonous
spines, they have little to fear
from predators. "They'll stand
their ground. That's why people
can bump into them," Akin said.
"We need a lot of eyes out for
the lionfish," Akins said.
Anyone seeing a lionfish
should report it immediately, but
do not attempt to capture it. Call
REEF at 852-0030; or the Mote
MEERA project at 745-2729,
Ext. 301.
"Tell us as much as possible,"
Akins said. "The reef, the depth,
even the coral head it was under,
if possible."

Symphony closes out season


Klein, Nonaka
are featured
in final show
Internationally acclaimed
pianist Andreas Klein and
rising opera singer Yuriko
Nonaka are to appear with the
Key West Symphony during
the orchestra's final master
series concerts of its 10th
anniversary season.
The symphony is scheduled
to perform at 8 p.m. April 4
and 5 at the Tennessee
Williams Theatre on the
Florida Keys Community
College campus on Stock
Island.
The symphony's nationally
.recognized conductor and
musical director Sebrina Maria
Alfonso will bring together
more than 70 professional sym-
phonic musicians from around
the country.
Alfonso's musical credits
include stints as guest conduc-
tor for the Prague Radio
Symphony and Los Angeles
Philharmonic, among many
others. In addition, she was the
first Cuban American ever
invited to conduct and hold a
permanent guest conducting
position with Cuba's premier
orchestra.
During the April concerts,
Klein is to display his artistry

on Ludwig van Beethoven's
Piano Concerto No. 5
"Emperor." The symphony also
is to perform excerpts from
Giacomo Puccini's "Madame
Butterfly" with Nonaka singing
the role of Butterfly.
A native of Germany, Klein
is a premier interpreter of
works by Beethoven, Mozart
and Robert Schumann, among
others. He has performed as a
soloist in leading venues
including London's Wigmore
Hall, New York's Carnegie
Hall and the Kennedy Center in
Washington, D.C., as well as
with internationally acclaimed
orchestras such as the Berlin
Philharmonic.
Nonaka recently won a pres-
tigious European opera compe-
tition for her portrayal of
Butterfly. She prepared for the
challenge in part during master
classes at an opera seminar
presented by the Key West
Symphony.
In addition to the evening
concerts, the symphony's
schedule includes two free day-
time concerts for Florida Keys
students. The young people's
concerts are a component of
the symphony's ongoing educa-
tional outreach program. Each
season, the symphony provides
up to 3,000 Keys students the

It was all about the green last weekend


Art auction
and St. Pat's
share theme
Key West was green last
weekend and it wasn't just
the Irish influence, either.
Sunday was the AIDS Help
art auction, and the theme was
"Green." The 57 participating
artists interpreted the theme in
many ways
-. scenes
with green
subjects,
green crit-
l ters (main-
'o ly reptil-
ian), ecolo-
gyorgreen
materials.
A sculp-
.ture by
.i. Jacquelin
Judi Bradford Sanchez
fell into the
latter category. J.T. Thompson
took a different perspective by
including $400 worth of crisp
new currency into the frame of a
deep, layered mirror etched with
"Money Changes Everything."
Terra cotta figure studies by
Jim Racchi showed no green,
except perhaps in the simplicity
of the material. On the other
hand, Susan Bailey's sculptural

and Sunday at Robbie's Marina,

free.

Bounce, Ooo La La and

extravaganza to Gerald Adams
Elementary School in Key West
at 7 p.m. Wednesday and

The benefit for the school

strange Colonial-era chandeliers
- thankfully not fashioned on
wagon wheels seemed like a
mixed metaphor.
The space seemed better used
than previous designs, and out-
side, the walk from the lobby to
the Atlantic Ocean was flanked
by quietly cascading reflecting
pools. Looking back at the sea-
side facade, though, the plastic
panes in the French doors
reflected the afternoon sun in the
way that says "not glass." Glass
was present, however, in the
glass and chrome balcony and
ramp railings added to that
~ metaphor mentioned earlier.
The grounds were landscaped
with mounds of white impatiens
drooping in the heat all the
earmarks of a mainland designer.
Cute little mojito bar in the


lobby, though.

St. Pat's Day
Hundreds of people wearing
silly green hats and a wild array
of other green accessories (if not
full costumes) herded themselves
down Duval Street last Saturday
and ended up at the Schooner
Wharf Bar in the 29th annual
St. Patty's Day Bar Stroll.
St. Patrick is, of course, the
5th Century patron saint of
Ireland. His introduction to
Ireland was as a teenaged slave
after being captured by Irish
raiders. He was able to escape
after six years and return to
Roman Britain, where he
became a missionary. In that
capacity he returned to Ireland.
How he's connected to bar
strolls, though, is anyone's guess.

Bay Jam festival

enters 13th year


Several bands
slated to play
at Founders Park
The 13th annual Bay Jam
music festival returns
April 6 at the TIB Bank of
the Keys Amphitheater at
Founders Park, mile marker 87
bayside on Plantation Key.
Concertgoers can rock to the
sounds of an eclectic range of
musicians from midday through
sunset and into the night from
the hammock-like performance
center set against the aqua
waters of Florida Bay.
Bay Jam's talent lineup
includes popular South Florida
bands liko Iko, Baga Trix, the
2nd Chance Band, The Regs,
Raford Stark and father-and-son
duo David and Nyan Feder.
Feder, who has been part of
Bay Jam since its beginnings,
remembers which annual event
it is by his son's age. Now 13,
Nyan Feder is slated to play
alongside his dad in their popu-
lar hillbilly flamenco style.


Feder's CDs include "Waiting
For Sara," "The Reason Why,"
"Black Emerald" and "This
Time in Between," which is
touted as the ultimate island spa
mix. His latest, "Saranade," is
widely applauded by music
lovers for its beautiful finger-
style acoustic guitar work.
In addition to live music, the
day's festivities are to include
food and beverage vendors
offering cool drinks and island
edibles. A highlight of the festi-
val each year is an art show fea-
turing works by local high
school students, who benefit
from the proceeds of Bay Jam
through art and music scholar-
ships.
Doors open at 11 a.m. and
Bay Jam is to continue until 9
p.m. Admission is $5 per adult,
with kids younger than 12
admitted free.

MARC House
readies for
first exhibit
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


M any Keys residents
think about plants when
considering MARC. But
after April 4, the moniker is as
likely to conjure thoughts of art-
work filled with brilliant colors
and dramatic design as, it is to
make people think of the popular
MARC Plant Store in Key West.
April 4 is when MARC, the
Monroe Association for
Retarded Citizens, has its art
opening at the East Martello
Tower and Museum, 3501 South
Roosevelt Blvd., Key West.
"This is one of the most
diverse groups of people I've
worked with," said Doug Morris,
curator of the show. "Everyone
thinks of diversity of race or eth-
nicity, but for this group of peo-
ple, their disability lends a pow-
erful flair to their artwork."
Morris teaches art at MARC
and he's been stretching canvas,
framing and matting artwork
readying for the show, which
will fill four separate galleries at
the museum. He hopes to organ-
ize the show the way any good
curator would, into themes.
One exhibit will feature con-


temporary artwork. That will
flow into another area featuring
the artists' interpretations of Key
West. He's thinking one room
may be reserved for pirate-relat-
ed images.
Morris has been working in
the field for a long time, most
recently with a California pro-
gram serving about 80 artists
with varying disabilities. But
he's particularly enjoying his
work at MARC.
"A lot of us have studied art
and gone to school for art," he
said. "That can be a good thing
and a bad thing. It reins you in.
But outsider artists have the abil-
ity to create things that are
beyond the norm."
Morris points out a rendering
of the Southernmost House on
Upper Duval Street, easily rec-
ognizable and garnished in float-
ing palm trees.
"They see things more
freely," he said. "When my guys
draw trees, for instance, they can
take a lot of different shapes.
"All good artists draw from
life, from their experience," he
continued. "And they know how
to deconstruct the subject, put it
in mental piles and put it back
together. Dali and Picasso are
prime examples of deconstruct-
ing. My students here have a
heightened ability to decon-
struct." '


Morris says the MARC
clients are excited about the
show, which kicks off with an
opening reception April 4 from 5
to.7 p.m.
"They haven't had a bigger
show than this. It's huge," he
said. "What we're doing here is
also exciting-to them. Before I
came on board, the art had been
more along the line of an activi-
ty."
It's a first for him, too, in
terms of the size of the show.
But Morris seems ready, easily
putting his hands on individual
pieces as he talks about different
aspects of the work.
"When they're with me work-
ing," he says of his students, "we
work in the same mindset of any
other artist in the country."
MARC, which serves more
than 80 clients with develop-
mental disabilities throughout
Monroe County, recently moved
from its Southard Street location
to its new digs at 1400 United
St. in the May Sands School.
The new space is airy and open
with lots of wall space for art-
work. Many pieces that will go
in the show are hanging on the
walls until it's time to take them
over to the East Martello.
"It's truly a pleasure, doing
the program here," Morris says.
The show runs from April 4
through May 3. Cards and T-
shirts sporting some of the art-
work are available at MARC.

Born has also written "Field

experience.
Amy, an adopted woman
seeking her biological parents,

writer Tom Corcoran's advice

do a brief reading and answer
questions.
"Chasin' the Wind" is a story
of what can happen when offi-
cials sworn to uphold the law try
to subvert it in Key West, and
journalist Liam "Mad Mick"
.Murphy is compelled to react.
Murphy and a ragtag group of
citizens confront failed justice, a
justice they are chasing' like the
wind, but are left with only
revenge as an option. Except,
perhaps a renegade deal with the
Cuban government. Dodging
treachery, Mad Mick Murphy
goes headlong toward treason,
dragging his team of typical
islanders deeper into the mess
they wanted to eliminate.
Thursday, join writers
from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Coffee

niques to keep the creativity
flowing. Cricket Desmarais leads

From now. on,

Keys Energy Services is
hosting its 14th annual Tree
Giveaway May 3 at 8:30 a.m.
until the last tree finds a
home. It's at the utility's main
service building 1001 James
St., Key West.
The giveaway is on a first-
come, first-serve basis for
Keys Energy customers (all
electrical customers from the
Seven Mile Bridge south) who
will have their choice of two
free-native shade trees each.
Traditionally, the utility has
given trees away in Key West
and at Cudjoe Key. However,
soil remediation, reliability
and storm-hardening projects
utilizing the Cudjoe site and
other Keys Energy properties
will prevent the use of a sec-
ond giveaway location in
2008.
CustOpers can log on to


www.keysenergy.com and
click on the "Growing

up-to-date event information.
Beginning after the 15th
annual Tree Giveaway in
2009, Keys Energy will hold
the event in odd-numbered
years, with the 16th annual
event taking place in 2011.
The program, which began
in 1994, is part of a nation-
wide public power program
called Tree Power sponsored
by the American Public Power
Association. The national goal
is to plant one tree for every
public-power customer for a
total of 16 million trees.
In 2004, Keys Energy
received the trade group's
Golden Tree Award for reach-
ing its goal of planting more
than 27,500 trees, or one for
every customer it serves. To
date, the Keys utility has
given away more than 32,000
native shade trees.

"When you're pitching well,
playing great defense and hitting

Three runs in the first inning
were all the Key West High
School softball team needed to
defeat St. Brendan, 3-1, in a
District 16-4A game Tuesday
afternoon at the Back Yard ball-
park.
The victory snapped a four-
game losing streak and came a
day after an 8-7 loss to Marathon
made more painful because the
Dolphins had never beaten the
Conchs in softball.
Kristen Babich, who' had


three hits, started the first-inning
uprising with a one-out single
against Sabres pitcher Tamara
Hidalgo. She later scored on a
single by Lindsay Yochum. Two
more runs came in on a double
by third baseman Madison
Disson.
St. Brendan cut the lead to 3-
1 in the third on an RBI single
by Cristy Cruz.
Hidalgo, a senior who won in
Key West two years ago, held
the Conchs scoreless on three
hits the rest of the game, but the
Sabres couldn't break through
against Yochum.

Girls stopped
after three
straight wins
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores High Schools'
girls tennis team hit a Conch
wall Thursday in a lopsided loss
to visiting Key West High
School.
"That was the flattest we've
played all year," Hurricane
coach Blake Fry said. "I'm not
making excuses, but maybe
three matches in a week is too
much."
Key West's Lady Conchs
rolled .to a' 6-1 .win over the:
Canes, a team that beat them, 4-


3, in late February.
Key West No. 1 Gaby
Scammacca stopped Simona
Lichvar, 8-1.
Lichvar moved up the ladder
to Coral Shores' top spot after
junior Alison Rhyne went down
for the season with a knee
injury.
"Key West came up here on a
mission to even things up," Fry
said. "I give them all the credit.
But it should have been a closer
match."
Tianna Morton claimed the
only Coral Shores win of the
day, 8-3 over Rachel Walker .t
No. 5.
Key West also got singles
wins from Rae Lark, Sarah

Canes upend Lady Fins on Gentes' hitting


Coral Shores
comes back
in big 5th
By KEVIN WADLOW
and RYAN McCARTHY
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Making their second straight
late comeback, Coral Shores'
softball Lady Hurricanes rallied


to score five runs in the fifth
inning to beat Marathon High
School, 8-6, Tuesday in Tavemier.
"We seem to like the fifth
inning," said Paul Grewe, co-
coach with Mike Young.
On March 14, the Lady Canes
scored eight runs in the fifth to
catch Dade Christian, 12-7.
Marathon, fresh off the
Dolphins' first-ever win over Key


West High School, owned a 5-2
lead heading into the bottom of
the fifth at Tavemier.
A chance to add to the lead van-
ished when Coral Shores pitcher
Holly Given got two strikeouts to
escape a bases-loaded, one-out
jam in the top of the inning.
Coral Shores (8-3) answered
with the five-run inning, keyed
by Shelby Gentes' bases-loaded
single to drive in two runs.
Ciara Sanchez started the rally


with a single. Lauren Sanchez
and Andrea Cockerham had RBI
sacrifices.
Gentes had two hits and three
RBI in the game. Michelle
Sexton and Ciara Sanchez also
had two hits. Tessie Worden and
Given each had one hit.
Given got the pitching win,
allowing eight hits.
"Marathon showed how good
they are when they beat Key
West," Grewe said. "Any game
with Marathon means a lot."
The Lady Dolphins (now 7-4)
started well with a three-run, three-
hit leadoff inning. A Hurricane
error put one runner aboard. Kelley


Struyf, Alexis Culver and Yari
Alpizar followed with hits.
"We were sloppy defensively,
we came out flat," Marathon
coach Andrea Murphy said. "We
could see it when we get off the
bus. I told them we had a great
win [against Key West] but let's
not come out flat."
Ali Heller pitched well but
was undone by defensive lapses,
Murphy said.
"Ali pitched an outstanding
game," Murphy said. "It's a
shame to see her work that hard
and we give it away... It was one
of those games we'll chalk up to
a learning experience."

Key West's Gaby Scammacca scores an 8-1 win at the No. 1
spot to lead Key West over Coral Shores.


Conch boys win 7-0


TENNIS / From 47

Fitzsimmons and Laura
Kaczkowski, along with both
doubles teams.
Key West's boys rang up a 7-0
win over the young Cane boys
team that has used this season to
gain varsity experience.
Nick Lark edged Hurricane
sophomore Zack Stroup, 8-5,
closest of the five boys singles
matches in the Conch sweep.
"Zack is right on the edge of
breaking through," Fry said.
"The rest of our guys came in this
year with very limited or no var-
sity experience. They work hard
and stick with it."
Other Key West singles win-
ners for the boys were Andy
Wallace, Nick Scammacca, Justin
Tomita and George Clark; 8-0.


Coral Shores' girls dropped to
9-3 after posting straight 7-0 wins
over LaSalle, St. Brendan and
Westminster Christian.
The current lineup: Lichvar at
No. 1, followed by Casey Rhyne,
Annie Leopold, Micheala
Walters and Morton "has been
successful for us and is very like-
ly the team we'll take to districts"
that start April 10, Fry said.
The Lady Canes aim play
themselves into one of the top
two team seeds for the regional
tournament.
"That looked like it was with-
in reach, but the loss to Key West
won't do anything to help our
[tournament] seeding," Fry said.
Coral Shores hosts probably
district leader at 3 p.m. Tuesday,
and travels to LaSalle on April 7
in the last match before the dis-
trict tournament.

Lady Fins 'flat' in Ransom rematch


Dade batters
score 5 runs,

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
softball team dropped its sec-
ond game in a row Thursday, a
week after an emotional victo-
ry over Key West High School.
The Dolphins lost to
Ransom Everglades School, 5-

score earlier this month.
Coach Andrea Murphy said
she feels the team has played


Cane Jenkins
adds third
'for the crown
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Running track one day,
playing soccer the next -
that's the life of Key West
High School junior Krizzie
Menez.
Menez scored two goals to
lead the Key West Soccer
Club's under-19 team to a 3-0
victory over host Plantation
and its first Florida Youth
Soccer Association Region A
title last Saturday.
The day before, Menez had
been on the Key West girls
track team's 4x100-meter
relay team that finished sec-
ond at the Westminster
Academy Invitational.
Menez, who was the sec-
ond-leading scorer this winter
on the high school- team, also
had an assist as the club team
won its third game in the tour-
nament.
"She's become a very
dynamic player," coach Scott
Paul said of Menez. "She
makes everybody else better.
With her speed, she can finish
on her own or set up a team-
mate." ,
The game was scoreless
until Menez scored off a free


flat in the wake of its first-ever
victory over the Conchs.
"The Coral Shores game we
just played poorly. This game
we played decent but came out
flat; it's like a letdown after
the big win," Murphy said.
"We don't want Key West to
be the highlight of our sea-
son."
Marathbn's flat play was
exhibited by allowing three
Raider runs in the first inning.
Murphy said their leadoff
and No. 2 batters got on base
and were doubled home. That
runner later scored on a one-
out single to put Marathon in


kick by Scarlett Williams at
the 30-minute mark of the first
half. Key West went ahead, 2-
0, in the second half when
Coral Shores' Jennifer Jenkins
scored off a cross by Menez.
The third goal was scored
by Menez after she came
down the goal line and crossed
the ball to two onrushing play-
ers. An ensuing shot by
Monica Bertram rebounded
off the keeper to Menez, who
put the ball into the net.
"Krizzie and Scarlett
worked with Monica Bertram
and Zoe Vincent to handle
most of the offensive duties,"
Paul said.
Vincent, a former Conch
star, now plays at Darton
College in Georgia.
Paul said the defensive
back line of Chloe DeVelasco,
Kaya Lydamore and Cheryl
Chavka was solid, as was
goalie Heather Waite. "We
rotated players all over the
middle of the field with
Ashley Stephenson, Rachel
Rivet and Jordan Lydamore
covering the stopper posi-
tions," Paul said.
Freshman Jennifer
Barcenas and eighth-grader
Robyn DeRoche also played
for Key West, which will meet
the Region B 'winner for the
President's Cup April 4 in
Plantation.


an early hole.
Ransom would tack on
another run in the third inning
before senior Alexis Culver
put Marathon on the board.
Sophomore Shelby Kuck
singled and Culver hit a two-
run home run to bring the
Dolphins within 4-2. Culver
was 1-for-3 with two RBI in
the game and Kuck was 1-for-


3.
Freshman Kelley Struyf
was 1-for-3 and Samantha
Rodamer 2-for-3.
Junior Vanessa Sardina
started the game, allowing five
runs with four strikeouts in the
complete-game effort.
Marathon dropped to 7-4 on
the season, but Murphy said
she expects the team to bounce

But pitching
problems hit
mound staff
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A lack of pitching caught
up with Marathon High School
in a Thursday home loss to
Palmer Trinity School, 9-4.
That at least followed a
bright spot, as Marathon won
its first game of the season
earlier in the week.


But Thursday, the
Dolphins' No. 1 pitcher, junior
Toby Eigner, was scheduled to
start but suffered a minor
injury warming up.
"He had a strain in his
bicep and we didn't want to
push it and ,cause further
injury," coach Luis Leal said.
Leal said the Dolphins were
forced to use a pitcher-by-
committee format for the
majority of the game, which
worked out well until the later
innings.

Junior Nick Bertiaux, who
,missed all of last season with a
shoulder injury, got the emer-
gency start. Bertiaux did well,
but tired after three innings.
"He had a little- tightness in
his arm; it's been 14 months
since his surgery and his arm
is not in pitching shape yet,"
Leal said.
Despite their pitching
woes, the Dolphins were tied
with the Falcons, 2-2, when
the game was delayed for
roughly 30 minutes due to
rain. Marathon took a 3-2 lead
after the rain delay, but the
lack of arms caught up with
them in the later innings.
Palmer scored three runs in
the fifth and four more in the
sixth to put the game out of
reach.
Sophomore Jake Sjursen
had a big game for the


Dolphins, going 3-for-4 with
two triples and two runs
scored. Senior J.P. McCabe
was 2-for-4 with two RBI.
The Dolphins earned their
first victory of the season
Tuesday, defeating Lenoir
City High School in the night-
cap of a doubleheader.
Marathon lost the first ,game
16-12, but earned a 5-1 win in

McCabe started the game
for the Dolphins and went the
distance. He had five hits in
the doubleheader.
"We should have won both
games, but we had 10 errors in
the first game. It's hard to win
when you" do that, Leal said.

Belen haunts


Conchs again


Key West can't
figure out
Wolverines
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It happened again.
Belen Jesuit defeated the Key
West High School baseball team.
The determined Conchs bat-
tled until the end, but still lost, 4-
3, in a District 16-4A game
Thursday night at Rex Weech
Field.
They have now lost six con-
secutive games to the
Wolverines. If they play them
again, it will be in the district
tournament in Key West in late
April.
Belen designated hitter Andres
Wiltz, who is 6-foot-1 and weighs
225 pounds, crushed a fastball
from left-hander Drew Rivera in
the third inning for a three-run
homer that traveled more than 400
feet over the left-field fence and
broke a scoreless tie.
The Conchs came back in
their half of the inning thanks to
eighth- and ninth-place hitters
Joseph Gandolfo and Noah
Josephson, who started the inning
with singles. Both went on to
score, Gandolfo on a sacrifice fly
by Raiko Alfonso, and Josephson


on a single by Nolan Thomas.
Belen extended its lead to 4-2
in the fourth when Yoe Lopez
scored from third base when
Josephson, the second baseman
filling in for the injured Frankie
Ratcliff, couldn't make a play on
a slow roller by Lucas Calderon.
Key West had trouble solving
Belen pitcher Chris DeGoti, who
used a sharp-breaking curve early
in the game before relying on a
fastball in the late innings. He
had seven strikeouts.
Blayne Weller relieved Rivera
in the fourth and kept the
Wolverines at bay by retiring 10
consecutive batters his best
performance of the season, Conch
coach Miguel Menendez said.
The Conchs had their chances
late in the game. In the fifth with
two out, Kyle Lepine drove a ball
over the center fielder's head, but
Josephson, who had been on first
base, was thrown out at the plate
on a perfect relay throw from the
shortstop.
In the sixth, the Conchs had
runners at second and third with
two outs, but Gandolfo missed a
fastball on the outside edge of the
plate and struck out.
Finally, it was the bottom of
the seventh. Michael Arencibia
singled with one out. Alfonso
struck out on a fast ball, but then

from first base on a double Thursday night at Rex Weech Field.


DeGoti drilled Lepine in the
back. Thomas then singled to
score Arencibia and cut the lead
to 4-3.
Up stepped Charlie Walker-
Yhap with the tying run at third
base. He hit a high bouncer to the
third baseman and, with fans and
teammates yelling in anticipa-
tion, raced to first and dove to the
bag, landing head-first in the
orange dirt.
The ball beat him by a split-
second, and Belen had won
again.
The Conchs, who defeated
Mater Academy, 11-4, Tuesday
night, fell to 8-8 and 3-4 in district.

Ruano-Lichvar tandem defeated Miguel Hernandez and Lane Greenbank (center) for the
title of the bracket that drew about two dozen teams.
