Court denies Hendrick


Judge tosses
acquittal motion,
he vows to fight on
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Former Monroe County
Attorney Jim Hendrick will not
be acquitted of several felony
charges, even after the fact.


Hendrick is serving a fives year
probation after being found guilty
in February 2007 of federal
charges of obstructing justice, con-
spiracy and witness tampering.
On March 18, U.S. District
Court Judge Shelby Highsmith
denied Hendrick's motion for
acquittal in the four-year-old case.
Hendrick attorney Edward
Shohat filed the motion for


acquittal last April, just weeks
before he was sentenced for
advising former County Com-
missioner Jack London about
how to evade grand-jury ques-
tions during a bribery probe.
The verdict stemmed from an
investigation that dated back to
the 1990s linking Hendrick to
London. London pleaded guilty
to filing a false income tax state-

Downs alleges
wrongdoing in
Sheriff's Office

Monroe County sheriff candi-
date Sandy Downs says she's
filed official complaints with the
Florida Commission on Ethics
against Sheriff Rick Roth; former
County Commissioner David
Rice; his son David, director of
the Sheriff's Office's
Administration Bureau; and
Monroe County Republican
Party Chairwoman Carey
Goodman.
Downs bases her case of
ethics breaches on Roth
appointing David Rice to the
Sheriff's Office's Shared Asset
Forfeiture Fund Board, which
decides how to allocate about
$125,000 for juvenile mental-
health and anti-crime programs
annually. Last week, the County
Commission approved the
appointment.

Law would OK other theories


SCHOOLS / From 1

"a subterfuge for injecting the
religious beliefs held by some
into the science classroom." .
If the bills become law, sci-
ence educators could teach
other theories in addition to
evolution and question the,
validity of evolution in science
classrooms. The bills would
also protect students who take
a stance against evolution from
being penalized by teachers or
administrators.
The bills are backed by
Republican state Sen. Ronda
Storms and representatives
Frank Attkisson, Alan Hays
and Kurt Kelley. The


Republican legislators repre-
sent Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk,
Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola,
Lake, Seminole, Volusia and
Marion counties.
The bills' language was
adapted from model legislation
written by the Discovery
Institute, a national advocacy
organization that, according to
its Web site, "supports research
by scientists and other schol-
ars" that challenges Darwinian
theory and helps develop the
theory known as "intelligent
design."
Walker, who holds a Ph.D.
in archeology, says discussions
of theories that oppose evolu-
tion belong in social studies or
philosophy classrooms, not in


science classrooms.
She said she doesn't believe
that either of the bills will pass,
but that she and other science-
standards writers signed the
petition to show legislators
precisely where they stand on
the issue.
"I've learned, dealing with
political process over the
years, that just because you
think something's not going to
happen doesn't mean you don't
watch it," Walker said.
"We wrote the standards,
that's why we wrote the press
release [announcing the peti-
tion] on Monday, specifically
-to ensure that legislators knew
how we felt about these bills."


Hendrick still plans appeal


HENDRICK / From 1

ment after the investigation
uncovered incidents in which he
accepted a $29,000 bribe to expe-
dite a hotel development in
Marathon. Hendrick was convict-
ed of facilitating the payment.
The motion for acquittal was
the last outstanding in the com-
plex trial.
In the motion, Shohat argued,
among other things, that the gov-
ernment had not proven Hendrick
"corruptly endeavored to
obstruct" a grand-jury proceeding.
But U.S. Attorney Alexander
Acosta argued the evidence left
no doubt Hendrick tampered with


federal witnesses in the bribery
case.
Though Hendrick was disap-
pointed with the ruling, he says
he's ready to move to the next
step.
"This will enable us to go for-
ward with out appeal," Hendrick
said of the decision Tuesday.
Hendrick had also asked for a
new trial. That motion was
denied in July.
Under terms of his probation,
Hendrick has to pay $50,000 in
fines and perform 2,500 hours of
community service. He's fulfill-
ing part of that aspect of his sen-
tence by consulting for Florida
Keys Community College.
Hendrick is also required,


under his sentence, to be
employed full-time during the
five years. He's bringing his
land-use expertise to his new
consulting firm, Critical Concern
Corp.
According to terms of his sen-
tence, Hendrick cannot "own,
operate, act as a consultant, be
employed in. or participate in any
manner, in any business related to
government contracting, or lob-
bying, on behalf of himself of
others, before any government
body during the period of super-
vision."
London was expected to testi-
fy against Hendrick, at one time
one of his closest friends, but
died before Hendrick's trial.

Water death is 4th


in past

Elderly man
drowns when
storms come
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The apparent drowning death
of a Long Key man who fell off
his boat Saturday was the fourth
on-the-water fatality in Monroe
County waters in the past 16 days.
Francisco Anaya, 73, was
fishing with a friend near Tripod
Banks, about nine miles north of
Duck Key.
According to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, Anaya and fishing buddy
John Demay, 86, were aboard
Anaya's 25-foot cabin cruiser.
The men were fishing as a
thunderstorm passed through the
area. Anaya's fishing line got
caught in the boat's propeller.
When he went to free it, Anaya
leaned over the stern but fell in
the water. Still wearing boots
and rain gear, he struggled to
remain afloat, authorities say.
Demay tried to throw a line
and extend a fishing pole to Anaya
but could not reach him, the FWC
says. Dernay then went into the
water, but Anaya had died.
Unable to get back into the
boat, Dernay remained in the
water, clutching Anaya's body,
for about two hours until people
on a passing boat rescued him,
the FWC says.


weeks


Dernay was treated for
hypothermia. Both men report-
edly were residents of Outdoor
Resorts.
The county's first boating
death of 2008 came March 10
when Card Sound liveaboard
Pedro Ramos fell off his boat
and drowned.
Josh Choi, 18, of Dunedin
died in a March 14 free-diving
accident off the Middle Keys,
and Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary diver Rusty
Mason, 54, died in a dive acci-
dent in the Dry Tortugas on
March 17.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, a
small boat went out of control
and crashed into mangroves off
Key Largo, seriously injuring a
Kentucky woman.
Stachia Gilmore, 54, of
Burlington was on a 13-foot
skiff with Devan Legate of Key
Largo, according to the FWC.
She reportedly stood up in the
boat to take a photo as they
passed through Dusenberry
Creek, but lost her balance. She
fell into the boat throttle, which
caused the skiff to accelerate and
crash into mangroves.
Legate swam into the creek
boat channel to seek help.
Passing boaters called rescuers.
The U.S. Coast Guard took
Gilmore to shore. She was flown
by air ambulance to a Miami
hospital for treatment of various
injuries, described as serious but
apparently not life threatening.

Swimming in the buff

A Key West man swimming
nude off Higgs Beach Monday
ultimately found himself cov-

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies on patrol were
approached by an employee of
Monroe County Public Works
just before noon who said
Claude Bazo, 30, took off his
swimsuit and was in the water,
nude. He was concerned


because of families at the beach
and the possibility Bazo might
expose himself to children.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
Sgt. Andrew Ensminger yelled
at Bazo, who was swimming
about 20 yards offshore. Bazo
reportedly saw the sergeant and
began swimming in the other
direction, but backup marine
Deputy Daniel Chu responded
and picked up Bazo, who was,
indeed, nude.
He was charged with disor-
derly conduct and indecent
exposure and taken to jail.

Complaints alleged


ETHICS / From 1

Division. Downs alleges he steers
no-bid contracts to the Guidance
Clinic of the Middle Keys, which
David Rice founded and in which
Downs says he still has an interest.
In her complaint against
David Rice, she wrote, "I do not
believe the sale of David Rice's
clinic, coinciding with his son's
rise to rank within the [Sheriff's
Office] is a coincidence, and the
incredible amount of conflict of
interest certainly suggests a con-
spiracy to use both agencies for
gain for the Rices at the expense
of the needy clients of the agency,
and the employees of the
Sheriff's Office and the citizens
who pay for their budget."
In her complaint against Mike
Rice, Downs says.
"The ongoing no-bid contract
awarded to David Rice by the
[Sheriff's Office] of which his
son oversees the administration is
unethical and I am sure illegal,
and violates laws."
* David Rice says he "has a
consulting relationship" with the
Sheriff's Office and that there is
no contract.


Roth defends the appoint-
ment, saying other agencies that
benefit from the board's deci-
sions are also represented.
Downs said she also filed a
complaint against Goodman.
What exactly she alleges is
unclear, but Downs contends she
has been targeted by the Sheriff's
Office and other agencies for per-
secution after she complained
about mangrove cutting on
Goodman's parents' Lower Keys
properties in 2004.
"It's disturbing that it's been
out there on the web before I've
even been notified," Goodman
said of Downs' alleged com-
plaint, which was announced in a
Monday morning e-mail from
Sloan Bashinsky.
Bashinsky is a candidate for
the District 3 County Com-
mission seat. For months, he's
been posting missives about
Downs' complaints .against
Goodman on several Web sites
and in e-mails.
None of the four had received
any notification of the complaints
as of Tuesday. And the state Ethjics
Commission doesn't confirm if
complaints have been filed until
there is an outcome to the case.


Shooting still a mystery


Deerfield woman
is killed from
single gunshot
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Circumstances surrounding a
Saturday shooting in Marathon
that took the life of 20-year-old
Andrea V. Anzola Villafrade
remained a mystery Tuesday.
At 10:15 p.m. Saturday,
Villafrade was shot under the
left breast in her room at the
Knights Key Inn. According to
Monroe County Sheriff' Office
spokeswoman Becky Herrin,
her boyfriend, 25-year-old Dam
Lopez of Davie, suffered a
wound on his right arm that
appears to have been from the
same bullet.
Villafrade, from Deerfield
Beach, was pronounced dead at
Fishermen's Hospital shortly
after her arrival, a Sheriff's
Office statement says. A
Monday autopsy confirmed
Villafrade was killed by a single
gunshot wound.
According to the hotel man-

ager, Villafrade checked into the
hotel late Saturday afternoon
with Lopez and another couple
whose names are being with-
held pending further investiga-
tion.
"They were the typical
Spring Breaker type people, on
a stay over on their way to Key
West. They went out there,
swam in the pool for three or
four hours, that's all," said the
manager, who declined to give
his name.
According to the report, sto-
ries from Lopez and the other
couple are inconsistent. But the
group agreed they came to the
Keys overnight planning to
drive to Key West and party.
They checked into the hotel,
went swimming and began to
prepare to drive to Key West.


Lopez has a concealed weapon
permit, the report says, and did
have his handgun with him.
Somehow, the report states,
the gun went off, eventually
killing Villafrade and injuring
Lopez.
Lopez asked a man staying
in a nearby room to drive him
and Villafrade to the hospital,
the report states, while at the
same time instructing the two
witnesses to call 911. Deputies
responded to the scene and
recovered the gun, but no one
has been charged in the case as
of yetL
The hotel manager said
members of Villafrade's family
visited the hotel Sunday and
were allowed to view her room.
They "came by and picked
up her vehicle yesterday. I
showed them the area and they
had their moment," he said.

Final applicant pool numbers 66


Now the council
needs to cull
manager hopefuls
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The month-long window the
Marathon City Council set to
accept applications for city man-
ager expired Tuesday and it's
looking like it'll need longer than
two weeks to choose a successor
for Mike Puto.
. As of Tuesday afternoon, 66
resumes had been sent to City
Attorney Jimmy Morales seeking
to replace Puto, who will remain
on staff until council hires either
an interim or full-time replace-
ment.
Council decided at a Feb. 26
recruitment and transition meet-
ing to accept resumes through
March 25, at which time Morales
would present them for review
and ranking. Council members
also said then they expected to
choose a successor for Puto with-
in tw9 weeks. Puto resigned Feb.
12 but remains on the job.
Opinions on how to conduct the
search ranged from choosing right
then between Assistant City
Manage CJ. Geotis and former
Key Colony Beach Mayor Clyde
Bumett, both of whom expressed
early interest, to conducting a
national search using a headhunter.


As was the case with the first
48 submissions, the last 13
resumes represent a diverse
group of applicants from varying
professional backgrounds. But
once again, several applicants for
the city's top administrative posi-
tion appear to lack typical man-
ager qualifications.
Three applicants have mana-
gerial experience, one being a
familiar one to Keys residents -
former Islamorada Village
Manager Bernard Lapira. He
stepped into the manager's post
in June 2003 when Charles
Baldwin left the village under
contentious circumstances, and
retired at the end of 2005 to North
Carolina.
Lapira was also director of gov-
ernment services for the village
and a director of human resources
for the city of Homestead.
Lapira was the predecessor to
Gary Word, who recently
resigned after a rocky tenure. The
village has hired former
Seminole Tribe manager Kenneth
Fields as Word's replacement.
Another familiar face in the
running is longtime Marathon
resident Kevin Woodland, who
submitted his resume Tuesday.
He also announced his candidacy
for election to the Marathon City
Council this November.
Woodland's resume states he
has operated Twin Cities


Landscape Corp. in Marathon
since 1973 and that he has "vol-
unteered thousands of hours of
my time and resources to pro-
mote youth sports in our local
schools."
Woodland is president of the
Marathon Alumni Athletic Club,
chairman of the city Land
Acquisition Board and has served
on the Parks and Recreation and
Code Advisory boards.
Among the other applicants:
+ Palm Bay resident James
Blount, managing partner of Your
Performance Group Inc. Blount's
resume indicates government
experience at the state level.
It says he's been chief of staff
and deputy secretary for the
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation and chief
of staff for the South Florida
Water Management District,
among assorted other posts.

The budget slashing

bloodies Legislature

"Beware the ides of March"
Julius Caesar ignored the soothsayer's warning at his peril,
and it appears Florida lawmakers are equally deaf to warnings
raining down Capitol corridors.
Facing a budget shortfall of $3 billion or more, the mood in
Tallahassee is definitely reminiscent of Shakespeare's scene in
Julius Caesar bloody knives are much in evidence.
Among state cuts on the table: Closing some state driver's
license offices to reduce costs (Monroe County already went
through this during cutbacks three years ago; Tax Collector
Danise Henriquez took over that state function at her county
offices, producing a budget surplus every year from fees
charged).-
The state's Early Learning initiative, which helps provide
pre-kindergarten care for all Florida families, faces a $16 mil-
lion cut. That means Florida families lose another $14.5 mil-
lion in federal matching money, according to the St. Petersburg
Times. Wesley House Family Services and pre-k providers in
the Keys are bracing for worse to come.
Enrollment is capped at state universities, but cutting won't
end there. Florida Keys Community College expects another
cut on top of the ones it got this year.
Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice R. Fred Lewis last week
labeled a 10 percent cut in the state's judicial system budget
"murder." Reductions are coming in court staffing, including
fewer state prosecutors to try cases.
Delays for trials are expected to grow worse and there's a push
for nonviolent offenders to get early prison release, yet another
way to shave expenses but at what cost to the public?
There will be less money for affordable housing programs,
which have already been drained by previous legislatures
siphoning off billions of dollars.
The Bill Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund was cre-
ated to help finance new construction and rehabilitation of
workforce housing. Funding comes from a 70-cent-per-$100
fee collected on every real estate transaction in the state.
As noted by The Miami Herald's editorial board, the
Legislature moved $1 billion from the Sadowski fund to gen-
eral revenue accounts in 2005. Every year since, they've raid-
ed the Sadowski fund adding up to billions that lawmakers
spent on other things.
As the editorial so aptly stated: "If lawmakers had not been
so irresponsible during the boom years, affordably priced hous-
ing wouldn't be in such desperately short supply today."
When lawmakers look at the bloody corpse left at the end of
this legislative session, they won't have to guess whose hands
held the knives delivering the mortal blows.

Cigar-store raids _F's to large issue of counterfeiting


EDITOR:
The Keynoter poked some editorial fun at
the Monroe County State Attorney's Office for
raiding seven Key West cigar shops March 18
and confiscating hundreds of counterfeit cigars.
The message of "there's little smoke in
cigar-store raid" (Keynoter, March 22) is that
"anyone dumb enough" to buy a counterfeit
product, say, a cigar, deserves whatever he gets.
The simple answer to the Keynoter about
why the search was such a high priority is that
we received criminal complaints from cigar
manufacturers about counterfeits. They had evi-
dence suggesting that knockoffs of their prod-
ucts were being sold in some Key West stores.
When we get complaints like that, we investi-
gate. And lo and behold, we found counterfeit
cigars valued in the thousands of dollars.
Counterfeiting is not a victimless crime. It
drains billions of dollars and hundreds of thou-
sands of jobs from the U.S. economy every
year.
And by the way, those "dumb" tourists you
refer to the ones sometimes duped into buy-
ing fake Cubans are the mainstay of our
economy here in the Keys.


The consequences of counterfeit products go
way beyond the economic. Bogus wine and
spirits, fake car and machinery parts, even
counterfeit medicine and medical devices cause
scores of injuries and deaths every year.
It's hard to believe the Keynoter would
smirk at a car wreck caused by counterfeit auto
parts or it the demise of a cancer patient related
to counterfeit chemotherapy even if "well,
duh" (your words) everybody knows that
there are bogus car parts and medicines on the
market.
The Keynoter might even be a little sympa-
thetic to someone "dumb enough" to buy a
counterfeit cigar and unwittingly inhale some-
thing far more poisonous than tobacco smoke.
Nobody at the State Attorney's Office
thought we were saving the world by raiding
those cigar stands. But we were upholding the
law. If we're putting even the smallest dent in
counterfeit product trafficking, then I'm sure
the Keynoter would agree we're doing good
work on behalf of the public at large.

Let's fund sewers the old-fashioned way


EDITOR:
With all the flurry and worry of searching
for sewer funding for the Keys, one obvious
way of getting funding is being overlooked.
It's one of the oldest and most proven ways
of raising money in the world. The Salvation
Army does it, Hare Krishna does it, the Lions
clubs, the Shriners, some of the street people,
grade schools, high schools, etc., all rely on
the public for donations for their particular
causes and, overall, make millions of dollars
a day by doing it.
It's called fundraising.
Think about it. We could start out by hav-
ing T-shirts made up that would say S.O.S.,
which would stand for Support Our Sewers
(they support you) on the front, and a picture
of a beautiful porcelain and chrome toilet on
the back.
We could then have a bunch of miniature
toilets made up, sort of like the Salvation
Army kettles you see at Christmastime, and
have volunteers strategically positioned in
front of businesses and street corners.
Somebody gives a donation, the volunteer
thanks them, then pushes the little chrome
handle, and voila!, we are on our way.
We could sell sewer-venirs of miniature
toilet key chains, koozie cups, visors and
hats, all with the great symbol of the almighty
toilet emblazoned on them.
We could have car washes, bake sales,
firefighter toilet drops (instead of the tradi-
tional boot drops), Tootsie Roll sales, etc., all
the while using the almighty toilet as our
symbol. We could invite all the schools,
churches and civic organizations to partici-
pate, and have a few days set aside each year
for this massive statewide endeavor. It would
simply be called Potty Days.


We could sell rolls of toilet paper that
would be printed with various points of inter-
est in the Keys, such as the Hickory House,
Florida Keys Marathon Airport, former Cay
Clubs holdings or the Vandenberg, and maybe
sell advertising to individuals and businesses
for so much per square.
This, in addition to going back to the old
pay toilet days, would generate millions of
dollars for our sewer system. I just can't see
how we've all overlooked this solution for so
long.
My friends, this could be the start of a
really big movement. In fact I'm getting
flushed with excitement just thinking about it.
I gotta go now.

Be frugal with existing taxes


EDITOR:
Why in God's name would any-
one propose more gas taxes only to
be wasted by the cities, state and
county? The breakdown includes
18.4 cents in federal taxes, 23.7 cents
in state taxes and 6 cents already col-
lected by Monroe County, plus auto
registration fees collected.


The bottom line here is the way
the received funds are spent. Fact is,
the people elected need to stop think-
ing about raising taxes and start
thinking about proper delegation of
the funds they already collect.

Increasing sales tax

hurts mainly the poor


Those living here in the late 1980s
will remember Bob Martinez, the
Republican governor who came up
with the grand idea of putting a sales
tax on services as disparate as account-
ant fees and haircuts.
Those living here in the late 1980s
will also remember Martinez was a
one-term governor, slid out of office in
1990 by voters primarily because of
that tax increase later repealed,
smartly.
Hate to use the cliche, but those who
don't remember the past are doomed to
repeat. Today, that applies to the
Florida Taxation and Budget
Reform Commission, which
is putting on the November
ballot a statewide referen-
dum asking whether the
state Constitution should be
amended to do away with
most school taxes financed
through property taxes and
replace them with a higher
sales tax, plus a tax on some
services.
The specifics are still
being worked out, but if ever Larr
there were a regressive tax Keyno
- a tax that hurts those in
the bottom spectrum of the
economy this is it.
Many say school taxes are inherently
wrong anyway, because if you're
grown up and the kids are out of
school, you're financing institutions
out of which you get nothing. Of
course, that view is specious, because
we all get out of our schools what we
put into them a productive society.
That aside, nickel and diming those
who can least afford it is not what our
elected leaders should be looking at -
especially when there are sales-tax
exemptions on the books benefiting
only the richest among the rich. They
include exemptions on college stadium
skyboxes, and golf-club and health-
.club memberships.
There are 246 total exemptions in the
Florida Tax Handbook, according to
the Miami Herald, and not all of them
scream for repeal such as those above;
some can be looked at as boosting the
economy by spurring investment.
But looking at every exemption to
recoup lost state taxes and, in turn,
finance needed initiatives is where to
start. Where not to start is looking at


adding to the state sales tax and a serv-
ices tax because we all know what'll
happen then: That cash will end up
somewhere in the bowels of govern-
ment, swallowed like all of that lottery
money that was supposed to supple-
ment education funding, not replace
education dollars as it did.
Florida's sales tax stands at 6 per-
cent. Down here, we pay more 7.5
percent, the extra 1.5 cents going to
specific local needs, such as schools
(on top of the schools property tax, by
the way).
There's also the possibility how-
ever remote of another
penny added to that to
finance sewer construction -
in Monroe County. And, of
course, yet another penny
looms, added to the gas tax.
So the Keys could be
looking at a 9.5-cent local
4 tax (8.5 cents if it's not
fuel). Tell the $12-an-hour
blue-collar worker how to
stomach a higher sales tax
and a services tax on top of
Kahn that.
er Editor The Florida Retail
Federation has a dog in this
hunt when it comes to a
higher state sales tax more at the
register means fewer items purchased.
But still, its executive director, Randy
Miller, makes an excellent point on
Sunday's Herald Issues & Ideas page:
"If you don't own a property, you're
not going to get any benefit from the
swap [of schools property taxes to a
higher sales tax], and you're going to
end up having to pay a whole lot more
for goods that you purchase at the gro-
cery store or at the local retailers....
Poor people will pay inordinately more
of their money, and they will not get
any benefit from this tax swap."
If 60. percent of statewide voters
approve the plan in November, it
becomes part of the Constitution, tak-
ing its rightful place next to that other
beautiful amendment voters passed in
2002, the one that offers protection to
pregnant pigs.
And whichever lawmakers deceive
the electorate by finding ways to couch
this as a good idea might just find
themselves where Bob Martinez did 18
years ago sent back to the private
sector involuntarily.

Drug court on the block


Judge says it
would be 'tragedy'
on local level
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Drastic end-of-year cuts at the
state level may mean the demise
of Monroe County's drug court
and the Keys to Recovery pretrial
program.
With only three months left on
the 2007-08 state fiscal year, the
Legislature is trying to carve $4
billion off expenses and noth-
ing is sacred.
The Florida Department of
Corrections has been asked to cut
$213 million off its expenditures,
and $37- million of that will be
taken off correctional substance
abuse programs.
"It would do away with drug
court funding completely," said
Jamie Pipher, executive director
of the Guidance Clinic of the
Middle Keys, the agency that
administers both drug court and
Keys to Recovery countywide.
"It's the only substance-abuse
residential treatment program in
the county," Pipher said, "and
they're talking about closing it
down 100 percent."
"Locally, I think this would be
a tragedy," said Monroe County
Court Judge Ruth Becker, who
oversees the local drug court and
is widely considered an expert on
drug courts in general. "It's sad
and so short-sighted."
Drug court is a state% ide pro-


gram that started in Miami in
1989. It couples sentencing with
substance-abuse treatment with
the goal of stopping the revolving
door drug use perpetuates.
Keys to Recovery, started at
the Guidance Clinic in 1994, is a
jail diversion program that pro-
vides a residential setting to end
substance abuse. According to
Pipher, it serves an average of 24
people annually.
Becker says both programs
take a holistic approach to sub-
stance abuse.
"Substance abuse, sadly, is
similar to domestic violence in
that it's generational," she said.
"What we're doing with these
programs is addressing the whole
family, the whole problem. That's
the cutting edge of jurispru-
dence."
"Closing these programs
would have a huge ripple affect,"
Pipher said. "It will affect chil-
dren, dependents, families.
Ironically, the cuts being made
to these programs are aimed at
allowing the Department of
Corrections to avoid cutting the
number of prison beds.
"They're having to make the
toughest decisions they've ever
made," Pipher said of the powers
that be in the Corrections
Department in Tallahassee.
"They're trying to find a way to
keep prison beds, and where else
are the going to cut?"
The bigger question may be,
what about next year?
As the Legislature rolls back


this year's budget, next year's
doesn't look any more promis-
ing. Already, many nonprofit
agencies are preparing for the
worst.
"The word were getting is
we're not talking about Florida
revenue turning around for
another two years," Pipher said.
"So we have every reason to
believe that the funding cuts
they're talking about are going
to be in effect another one to two
years, even in a best-case
scenario."

College braces for another hit


Another hike
in tuition
seems likely
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

State Rep. Ron Saunders and
administrators at Florida Keys
Community College consider this
school year the quiet before the
storm.
The fiscal storm. It started out
as an afternoon rain shower, and
officials predict it will grow into a
torrential downpour by next fall.
"This academic year, FKCC
has endured a 3.7 percent budget
cut to our state appropriation," a
report from college president Jill
Landesberg-Boyle says, adding
that the financial blow was soft-
ened through increases in full-
time student enrollment by 10.8
percent, auxiliary revenue and
rental income. .
More cuts are predicted. But
administrators and officials can
only speculate how much.
The president's report lays out
what would happen in the event
of a 3 percent cut, or $439,000.
The college's 2007-08 budget is
$8,734,893, from state appropria-
tions and tuition revenue.
Starting in the summer, the
start of next fiscal year, the col-
lege will likely see a 6 percent, or
$377,000, cut. "That would take


us from $6.3 million $5.2 million
in state appropriations,"
Landesberg-Boyle said.
"From a budgetary standpoint,
it looks -very dismal," Vice
President of Financial and
Administrative Services John
Kehoe said.
To offset that deficit, tuition
for students will be up nearly. 10
percent from this year to next,
counting a 5 percent increase
from this school year.
Gov. Charlie Crist initially
vetoed state legislators' 5 percent
tuition hike for this spring semes-
ter. It took the backing of Florida
community college students
themselves and a stifling tight
budget year to convince him it
was necessary.
In a conference call Tuesday
with state Sen. Evelyn Lynne,
chairwoman of the Senate
Committee on Higher Education
Appropriations, Saunders and
Landesberg-Boyle were told the
Senate is considering a 6 percent
tuition increase. It's expected to
receive resistance from Crist.
But "at least 4.1 percent is
apparently veto-proof for next
school year," Kehoe said,
because the tuition increases are
directly related to changes in cost
of living.
To offset the deficit, the col-
lege has cut back on travel
expenses and relied on staff attri-

tion to vacate positions.
Landesberg-Boyle refers to the
faculty as a "skeleton staff" that
has to work extra hard. Librarians
and maintenance positions are
frozen.
Tuesday night at its board of
trustees meeting, a budget strate-
gy was laid out
Freeze hiring for all posi-
tions that aren't crucial and share
clerical staff.
Take steps to cover college


advisor positions and look for a
full-time grant writer.
Freeze all non-essential
travel and purchasing.
+ Reduce budget reserves
from 8.5 percent to 5 percent, or
$377,636. Most community col-
leges recommend reserves to be
between 5 and 10 percent of the
college's total budget, Kehoe said.
Landesberg-Boyle says no
employees will be laid off as a
result of budget constraints.


A major drawback of the col-
lege's current situation: It relies
almost entirely on tuition revenue
and state appropriations to func-
tion, while other colleges utilize a
number of different financial
sources. This is a primary reason
Landesberg-Boyle is on the hunt
for grant writer.
"I think this is the beginning of
the cuts," Saunders told the board
via speakerphone Monday night.
"Not the end of it."

Senators fight new permit


They say it
wasn't intended
for small boats
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com

Congressional lawmakers are
moving to head off a pending fed-
eral permit that could be required
for all recreational and commer-
cial boats in the United States.
"This could be very messy and
very expensive for boaters," said
Scott Croft, a spokesman for
Boat U.S., the nation's largest
boating organization.
Florida U.S. Senator Bill
Nelson last week introduced
Senate Bill 2766 to forestall the
Sept. 30 deadline for enactment
of the discharge permit.
"That stemmed from a lawsuit
that had a goal of cutting back on
invasive species," said Bryan
Gulley, a spokesman for Nelson.
"But the court's decision went
way beyond that, to the point
where it could be detrimental to
boaters throughout the country."
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency in 1973 issued


an exemption from clean-water
regulations for "incidental dis-
charges" of ballast and runoff
waters from vessels. '
Concerned that ballast water
from large ocean-going ships
contributed to the release of inva-
sive species in U.S. waters, envi-
ronmental groups sued the gov-
ernment, saying the exemption
was not legally authorized.
The court agreed; and
declared that all vessels com-
mercial and some 13 million
recreational vessels must seek
a federal permit for any dis-
charged water.
The Clean Water Act of 2008,
submitted by Nelson and Sen.
Barbara Boxer, seeks to "exclude
recreational boaters and anglers
from the federal and state permit-
ting requirements under the
Clean Water Act designed for
land-based industrial facilities
and ocean-going commercial
ships," according to a summary.
"Legislation is the only magic
bullet for this," Croft said. "If the
legislation does not pass, the EPA
guidelines would apply to all ves-
sels maybe even dinghies and
. kayaks."


"It could wind up costing sever-
al hundred dollars per boat," Croft
said. "Right now, no one knows."
Gulley from Nelson's office
said the law to block the permit
requirement for recreational
boats would not make it easier for
maritime polluter to discharge oil
or sewage.
"All those are covered by sep-
arate laws," he said. "This has
nothing to do with sewage dis-
charges, which we know are a big
concern in the Keys."
As outlined, a boat owner trai-
lering his recreational boat
through several states to reach the
Keys could need a separate per-
mit for each state ,he passes
through, Gulley said.
"We are hopeful this will
pass," Gulley said. "It has very
strong support. There are a lot of
senators who represent states
with a lot of boaters."
Said Croft, "The clock is tick-
ing. Boaters need to stand up and
let their representatives know
they support this legislation."

lion registered boats, 28,255 of
them in Monroe County.

22-year-old gets 20 years


He turned down
several offers
of three years
By KYLE TEAL,
kteal@keynoter.com

. After being convicted of
attempted second-degree murder
in February, 22-year-old Alex
Means was repeatedly offered a
three-year sentence from the
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office.
Means rejected them, claim-
ing God would deliver him.
But when it came to sentenc-
ing Tuesday, Circuit Court Judge
Mark Jones granted what the
State Attorney's Office asked
for: A mandatory minimum of
20 years in prison.
. "It was real folly for him not
to take the deal," State
Attorney's Office spokesman
Matthew Helmerich said.
"Because now, a 22-year-old
man is going to spend the next


20 years behind bars."
Means faced a maximum sen-
tence of life for firing a handgun
in a Stock Island trailer park
after a drug deal that went sour
Jan. 2, 2007.
Police and prosecutors say
the bullet missed its alleged tar-
get, 23-year-old John Davila,
and hit a nearby vehicle's head-
light.
They say Means ran down 9th
Avenue, away from the scene.
But a witness was able to pick
Means out of lineup, and three
additional people in the area
heard the gunshot and argument.
Three days after the incident,
Means turned himself in.
The evidence was enough for
,a jury to convict .Means of
attempted murder Feb. 16. A
robbery charge from another
incident is pending.
Within six months after the
botched drug deal, Davila died
of unrelated causes, according to
the State Attorney's Office.


During Tuesday's hearing,
Means' uncle, Michael Jolly,
told Jones he has no ill feelings
toward Manny Madruga, who
prosecuted the case.
Jolly said he's from a big Key
West family .that's "not above
punishment." He said he took
Means in after his father went to
prison and raised him like a son.
He didn't want to see his family
member in prison for 20 years.
"I love him with all of my
heart," Jolly said.
While his uncle spoke, Means
wiped moisture from his eyes.
Means' attorney, Richard
Wunsch, said he will appeal the
sentence.
"For the state, this is a very
sad day," said Madruga, who
was sympathetic to Means' fam-
ily.
"Christ gave me a new life,"
Means told Jones. "Everything
that's going on in my life has
changed me. I hold no remorse
against anybody. I love every-
body."

Repairs coming to primary sidewalk


It's part of
larger project
for Roosevelt
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The oceanside lane of North
Roosevelt Boulevard will be
closed for a couple of weeks


starting March 31, as the long-
awaited repaving of the prome-
nade makes life a little better for
joggers and bicyclists.
If all goes according to plan, it
will mean smoother travel for
pedestrians in Key West.
"I actually think we're going
to see some tarmac laying down
there soon," City Commissioner


Mark Rossi said. "I have my fin-
gers crossed that it might actually
happen."
Contractor D.N. Higgins was
chosen to complete the $440,000
task, funded by the state
Department of Transportation.
In November, the state
Department of Transportation
paved the oceanside southbound
lane to serve as a temporary fix to
the bumpy road. Repaving the


Feds launch city probe


It reportedly
is concerning
injection wells
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com


The U.S. Attorney's Office in
Miami is investigating the city of
Key West's handling of stormwa-
ter injection-well projects follow-
ing the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection launch-
ing an investigation of its own.
Through the year, the City
Commission has approved
numerous stormwater contracts,
but the Keynoter has learned
investigators are requesting a
broad range of documents,
including those related to a proj-
ect passed in 2003.
One recent approval of allo-
cated funds in the city involved
Charlie Toppino and Sons Inc. in
early June last year. The bid was
for a $2.24 million project to con-
struct 10 wells.
In November, five Keys


stormwater-improvement proj-
ects and a wetland-restoration
effort in Key West received $2.6
million in funding from the South
Florida Water Management
District.
Of that money, $400,000 went
toward a $1.2 million project to
better contain and treat Key West
stormwater runoff before it
reaches nearshore waters.
In February 2005, city records
show, a contract with Toppino
and Sons was approved for $6.6
million to construct for a 25
wells. City commissioners direct-
ed staff to talk Toppino and Sons
down to $4 million due to budget
constraints.
"I don't know anything about
the investigation," retiring
Assistant City Manager John
Jones said. "We've completed a
lot of well projects over the
years," some that were awarded
to contractor DN Higgins Inc.
Jones said Toppino and Sons
gets many jobs from the city
because of advantages like being


a local company and having its
own well driller.
State DEP spokeswoman Amy
Graham said because it's an open
federal investigation, all inquiries
must go to the U.S. Attorney's
Office. That office couldn't con-
firm or deny an investigation.
Julio Avael, city manager
when the contracts were award-
ed, said he had little involvement
in the contracting process outside
reviewing executive summaries.
General Services Director
David Fernandez is collecting the
documents for investigators, but
would not talk about them or if he
has knowledge of the investiga-
tions' focus. Fernandez is one of
two people who will fill Jones'
position when he retires May 1.
Fernandez makes recommen-
dations to the City Commission
on stormwater projects, and Allen
Perez of Perez Engineering has
reviewed projects before the
commission's votes.
Perez and two employees of
Toppino and Sons did not return
phone calls before press time
Tuesday.


entire North Roosevelt Boulevard
from the entrance of the island to
Palm Avenue will commence in
2011, city officials say.
City Engineer Roland Flowers
said the state's South Roosevelt
project will finish in 2009 .Work
from the triangle where U.S. 1
and A1A meet to about Smathers
Beach is already completed.
Representatives of DOT, the
South Florida Water
Management District and U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers met
with Flowers and City Manager
Jim Scholl to walk from
Eisenhower Drive to the entrance
of the island in late November.


That meeting was concerning the
big project to start in a few years.
The water district had an issue
with the proposed extension of
the North Roosevelt seawall,
which would affect seagrass,
Scholl said. The district will have
to grant an environmental permit
for the project.
The entire project will widen
portions of North Roosevelt by 6
feet, Scholl said. But for now, at
least, Key Westers will be able to
count on a less rocky sidewalk.
"This is just a Band-Aid,"
Flowers said, "putting a layer of
concrete over the sidewalk so we
have a smooth surface."

FEMA grant to help recruit firefighters


Sugarloaf
chief says
staffing down
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The volunteer fire service at
Sugarloaf Key just got a boost
in the form of a $99,000 grant
from the Federal Emergency
Management Agency.
Sugarloaf Volunteer Fire
Department Chief Mike
Bowden says the money will
help the department recruit new
firefighters.



Where 0eui~


"Everyone has trouble
recruiting and retaining fire-
fighters," he said. .
The grant, paid out in install-
ments over four years, is part of
a $115 million federal program
called Staffing for Adequate
Fire and Emergency Response,
or SAFER.
Part of the grant will pay for
the salary of an administrator to
coordinate a new recruitment
program, Bowden said.
"We'll coordinate with other
departments in the county, and
the thrust is to do mailings,
demonstrations, anything to get
into the public eye," he said.
Bowden said even though
Sugarloaf is adequately staffed
right now, finding and keeping
volunteers is getting tougher all
the time.. He said the poor state
of the economy will only exac-
erbate the problem.


There are 15 volunteer fire-
fighters on call at Sugarloaf,
Bowden said; ideally, there
should be twice that. The
department responds to about
300 calls annually. Bowden said
the lion's share of those calls are
medical.
Still, he says the few struc-
ture fires that happen in the
Lower Keys are draining on the
individuals who fight them, and
it's vital there are plenty of peo-
ple to put them out.
"Ten percent of our calls are
fires," he said. "And that's all
sorts of fires, from illegal burns
to house fires that we either
respond to directly or provide
mutual aid. For example, we
were up there several years ago
with the tanker fire on the Seven
Mile Bridge. With such a small
community, we get around."
Monroe C.ounty pays for
equipment and its maintenance,
Bowden said.


"It costs about $100,000 to
hire one career firefighter," he
said. "Our entire budget [from
the county] for the entire year is
under $100,000. That's for
apparatus maintenance and a
base compensation program for
firefighters. The 15 people we
have, if they were career, would
add up to millions of dollars."
.Volunteer departments are
cost effective, he says, but find-
ing enough people who have the
time and wherewithal to volun-
teer is tricky.
"The local people are the


%Ilac ul %


ones you want and its tough," he
said. "The pool's only so big."
Becoming a volunteer fire-
fighter doesn't require experi-
ence or previous training, and
that's a point that this grant will
help get out to potential fire-
fighters.
"All you need is the will,"
Bowden said. "We supply all the
training. The department sup-
plies the hands-on training.
We're an element of Monroe
County Fire Rescue, so the actu-
al certification is through the
county."

Superboat racer Copeland dies at 64


Popeyes founder
boosted Keys
with the sport
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

When fast-food magnate Al
Copeland came to race his off-
shore superboats in the Florida
Keys, "he'd bring all his toys,"
recalls longtime associate John
Carbonell.
That impressive collection of


"toys" included a mega-yacht
that drew wide-eyed admiration
as it towered over the docks at the
Faro Blanco Marine Resort mari-
na in Marathon.
Copeland, founder of the
Popeyes Famous Fried Chicken
chain, died Sunday while under-
going cancer treatment in
Germany. He was 64.
The Popeyes racing team also
came to the Keys with personal
watercraft and a helicopter, in
addition to cutting-edge offshore
race boats up to 50 feet in length.
"Al was the first one to have a
four-engine superboat,"


%s itm whrr in

ocf tcrftuUl%



I,. 9 4


ON.


Carbonell said.
Locally, Copeland is best
remembered for his contributions
to promote offshore powerboat
racing in Key West and Marathon
in the late 1980s, when the sport
drew national television coverage
and huge crowds of fans.
"Al brought a lot of excite-
ment and showmanship,"
Carbonell said. "Wherever he
went, he created excitement.
There were a lot of good times."
Copeland and "Miami Vice"
star Don Johnson were two pri-
mary founders of the Offshore
Professional Tour, which sought
to organize owners of the bigger
racing powerboats into a national
circuit. Carbonell was the OPT's
first executive director.
"From the day we met, we did
a lot together," said Carbonell, a
Key West native. Carbonell
founded and runs Super Boat
International, the powerboat cir-
cuit that followed OPT.
Copeland raced his own boats
but had to give up his spot in his
cockpit after suffering a neck
injury in a snow-skiing accident.
He then tapped actor Chuck
Norris to take over.
Copeland was last in Key


West for powerboat races in
2004, Carbonell said.
"We've been getting inundat-
ed with calls from all over the
country," Carbonell said from
Super Boat International offices
Monday. "We're about the only
ones who have pictures of Al
when he was still racing."
Copeland scaled back his rac-
ing participation in the early
1990s after Popeyes went into
bankruptcy, the result of a costly
buyout of the larger Church's
Fried Chicken chain.


Copeland managed to retain
rights to the unique spice mix that
gave Popeyes chicken its distinct
flavor. He remained personally
wealthy, owning an upscale
restaurant in his native New
Orleans and partnerships in other
businesses.
He never lost interest in off-
shore racing, Carbonell said.
"Al was building a 65-foot
boat in New Orleans to bring onto
the [Super Boat] circuit,"
Carbonell said.

profits decrease

Carnival Corp., whose
cruise ships make port calls
in Key West, said Thursday
first-quarter profit fell 17 per-
cent due to rising fuel costs, a
drag on operations that also
led the world's largest cruise
operator to lower full-year
profit guidance.
Net income dropped to
$236 million, or 30 cents per
share, in the three months
ended Feb. 29, from $283
million, or 35 cents per
share, a year ago. Sales rose
17 percent to $3.15 billion
from $2.69 billion.
The increase in revenue
was largely offset by escalat-
ing fuel expenses, which cost
Miami-based Carnival $156
million, or 19 cents per
share, in the quarter.

At first sign

Monroe County foreclosure
filings doubled in January and
February this year compared to
2007, according to County Clerk
Danny Kolhage. Foreclosure auc-
tions tripled for the same period.
The increase in auctions stems


from a sharp uptick in cases filed
last year, and each auction could
represent more than one property.
The increase in foreclosure cases
the past two months could lead to
more auctions. .
The steep climb in new cases
adds to a 2007 that saw a 145 per-
cent increase in foreclosed prop-
erties compared with 2006.
This past January and
February, 197 foreclosures were
filed; there were 66 auctions. For
the same months last year, there


were 98 foreclosures and 22 auc-
tions.
Statewide and nationally, the
picture is similarly bleak. Notices
of possible foreclosures are up 60
percent in February compared to
last year, according to
RealtyTrac, a company that mon-
itors foreclosure filings. Home
repossessions are up 90 percent
in the same period.
Florida trails only Nevada and
California for the highest foreclo-
sure rates. One in every 254

Sea Air Land Technologies
Inc., better known as S.A.L.T., is
moving up the Overseas
Highway at the end of this month.
The 18-year-old Marathon-
based company designs, sells and
installs power and backup sys-
tems for home use, and air-condi-


tioning, refrigeration and desali-
nation systems for marine use.
Its newly purchased home, at
2992 Overseas, is the former site
of Paradigm Boats. Company
founder Bob Williams and co-
owner Chuck Meier are convert-
ing the building's service bays
into a showroom.
Meier said the offices will
move by April 1. Work on the
showroom is under way and it
should be open by May 1.
"Despite all the gloom and
doom out there, we're very fortu-


nate to be in a growing mode,"
Meier says. "Part of that would
be attributable to the alternative-
energy drivers the green
movement."
Williams and Meier are seeing
growing interest in residential
and commercial use of alternative
energy and energy- and water-
efficient systems.

Beautiful Visions owner
Patrick Riendeau says he
sees a parallel from his for-
mer home in New Hampshire
to the Keys a lack of com-
petition.
The window-cleaning-

Keys on vacation and decid-
ed to stay after a friend con-
vinced him to start a business
in the Keys similar to his
New England venture. Just
like up north, he says, he saw
an undeveloped market.
Riendeau's entrance to
the window cleaning busi-
ness was similarly a chance
occurrence: While cleaning
his paint off windows, a
client asked him to clean the
rest of the windows. Before
he could finish, a neighbor
asked for the same service.
From there he bought tools
and began advertising. He
"dropped the paint brushes"
from then on, he says.
Now he is cleaning win-
dows at the Hard Rock Cafe,

"I feel like things have
been rolling," he says after
only two months in business
here. He has 10 years experi-

A foreclosure is a situation
where a creditor (a bank) takes
ownership of a piece of real estate
after the owner fails to comply
with the terms of an agreement (a
mortgage).
But not all property owners
who fail to pay their mortgage are

ny's position on the forefront of
green technologies in the Keys.
Williams points out that many
of the products developed for use
on the high seas compact
solar and wind power systems,
super-efficient and portable
refrigeration and desalination -
have land-based applications.
"The yachting industry has
developed a lot of technology
innovations," Williams says, and
products originally designed to
meet the needs of wealthy cruis-
ers eventually evolve and
migrate to other applications.
S.A.L.T.'s work on both sea
and land puts it on the forefront
of that migration.
Moving from S.A.L.T.'s cur-
rent location a tiny Conch
house at 2109 Overseas to the
4,000-square-foot building will
give the company room to dis-
play and demonstrate products
that capitalize on the public's
growing interest in solar and
wind power and other energy-
efficient innovations.
"We'll have products that cus-
tomers can come in and purchase
and they'll be immediately
usable," Williams says.
Plans also include installation
of a solar system that will power
the building and give customers
an opportunity to see how such
systems work.

and the bank forgives the differ-
ence, that is called a "short sale."
Short sales have to be
approved by the bank, unlike tra-
ditional sales by mortgage hold-
ers. These types of sales save the
bank costs associated with fore-
closure, including legal fees.
Increasingly, national lenders
complain of an influx of heavy, jin-
gling envelopes: Homeowners
who drop their keys in the mail
rather than fight through foreclo-
sure. But local lenders and con-
sumer advocates say homeowner-
ship does not have to end this way.
Local lenders say they have
avoided the sizable foreclosure


problem so far. One reason:
Loans issued by local banks
required more thorough proof of
customer's ability to pay, said
Kurt Lewin, a vice president at
First State Bank.
And when homeowners miss a
payment, they are immediately
contacted. Local mortgage bro-
kers will know their clients better,
he said, so they will help home-
owners whenever possible.
Larger brokers don't have the
flexibility to catch homeowners
as early, Lewin said.
Even the most altruistic
attempts at initiating contact by
any bank can go ignored by

homeowners that are scared,
aggravated or otherwise. And to
be sure, First State has had a few
foreclosures despite their efforts,
Lewin said.
Financial advisers and con-
sumer advocates agree that going
dark is the worst thing a customer
can do.
"If they don't understand their
situation I understand if they
don't want to ddmit that but
come see me, come see a mort-
gage professional," says Josh
Mothner, president of Marathon-
based Haven Funding. "Don't go
on the Internet. Those of us still
in the Keys and there aren't


very many we know what
we're doing. And we don't want
to get a drink thrown at us when
we go out at night."
Every downturn in home
prices has its upside. As home
prices fall, buyers who could
never afford a home before sud-
denly find prices dipping to levels
they find affordable.
"There are opportunities for
people to take advantage of it, so'
that's not bad," Lewin said. "But
the poor souls who lost their
homes, that's bad. Unfortunately,
it's the way the world works -
there's a silver lining."

Protect and preserve

Bender's passion for architecture helps keep history alive


By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com


Key West architect Bert.
Bender is easy to miss.
Soft-spoken and standing about
5-foot-3, his physical stature is a
powerful contrast juxtaposed next
to his restoration projects, such as
the Gato Building on Simonton
Street or the Custom House
Museum on Front.
His projects'are imposing in
the best way, ranging from a
Moroccan-style home in New
Town to public facilities such as
the Marathon Community Park.
On a sun-drenched walk or
bicycle ride through Keys com-
munities, sometimes it's those
things that can -serve as partial
justification as to why Keys cities
offer the highest rents and mort-
gages in the state.
In Key West alone, Bender
and Associates tackles 40 to 60
annual projects. Keyswide, it's
easily 100, albeit relatively small
restoration.
Bender, 60, talks of respecting
columns and existing structure
while walking around the Gato
Building, a historic structure built


Key West architect Bert Bender, 60, says the best creative
challenge is blending an old building's charm and decor with
modern use. He's got plenty of experience in making that a
reality with buildings in the Keys and elsewhere.


in the 1920s as a cigar factory and
now the site of Monroe County
government offices.
The columns are still visible.
The tiled floors, while not the
original, respect the authentic


design of the building. Some of
the windows are the real deal, a
preservation debate- that led the
county to sue five different par-
ties including Bender and
Associates in 2003. The cases


are pending.
Growing up in inner-city
Chicago as the son of plumber,
Bender's parents "thought it'd be
a good idea if somebody went to
college," he says with a quick
smile.
After studying architecture at
the Urbana Campus of the
University of Illinois, he started
an internship in Arizona, where
he developed lasting business
relationships, giving his firm
projects in that state to this day.
Bender is a known community
advocate, and can often be spot-
ted at nonprofit meetings brain-
storming efficient means of
restoration and preservation. He's
served on more boards, founda-
tions and commissions than
humanly possible.
"We do a lot of pro bono
work," Bender said. "Probably
more than what's justified from a
financial standpoint."
Recently, he's been instru-
mental in helping the planning
phases of the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust's pro-
posed community on 6.6 acres of

the Truman Waterfront property

"Bert was the third president"
of the trust, Executive Director
Norma Jean Sawyer said. "He
came in and really organized our
programs and was a very effec-
tive fundraiser for us. He is all
about affordable housing, and
making it really affordable for
people around Bahama Village."
In 1960s Chicago, Bender
worked for a nonprofit that
repaired homes and built public
housing, similar to the work he
does now in Bahama Village,
repairing old Conch homes that
have been in the families of
Bahamian immigrants since parts
of the island were developed.
Preserving what exists is the
reputation Bender and his firm of
seven staffers has developed in
the community, in a city that
doesn't have much green space
available for development. But
restoration, he said, makes for
even more creative freedom -

mixing the old and the new.
"Porches are important in Key
West," Bender said while
describing what makes a commu-
nity. Crime decreases, while a
sense of community increases
when neighbors interact with one
another.
His firm has received awards
from the Historic Florida Keys
Preservation Board for excellent
rehabilitation and master crafts-
manship for projects such as the
Gingerbread House at 615
Elizabeth St. in Key West.
Bender works to get a holistic
view of what a community
desires. He pulled it off in
Marathon.
While planning the communi-
ty park's Phase 1 a decade ago, he
found the community severely
split on what it wanted at the park
at mile marker 49.
He called in facilitators from
the Florida Conflict Resolution


Consortium at Florida State
University for a series of commu-
nity planning workshops. In the
end, they reached compromise.
The park ended up with a bit of
what everyone wanted.
In Key Biscayne, Bender's
firm restored the Cape Florida
Lighthouse. A project in Montana
landed the group an award from
the National Trust for Historic
Preservation.
In his office on Angela Street,
in the heart of Old Town Key
West, he sits amid heaps of
binders and floor plans, behind
photos of his own closely knit
staff. His typically laidback
demeanor is quickly interrupted
when an assistant walks in to
relay a client's bureaucratic
demands. Bender curses, excuses
himself and walks out of the
room.
His assistant smiles warmly.
"This happens," she explains.

Conchs fall


on their own turf


But there are
bright spots
in track meet

The shot putters and discus
throwers labored beneath a driz-
zle in a far comer of the infield,
out of the spotlight and far from
the fans hanging by the track-
side fence cheering on the
sprinters.
"They don't look at us, but
they should," freshman Ja'Taure
Mathis said at Saturday's Key
West High School track meet
with South Dade. "Track isn't
all about running. It's track and


field."
Mathis tossed the shot 28
feet, 1.5 inches to win the event.
Her windup included a kick that
some of her teammates had yet
to master.
"If I fall doing the kickie
thing, don't laugh," said
Jennifer Roberts, who came in
eighth place, with an effort of
19-6.
Nearby, emerging happily
from the netted discus-throwing
cage was Kevin Pribramsky
whose throw of 111-11 won the
event. It was his personal best
and moved him from eighth to
seventh place on the Conchs'

McCabe lifts Dolphins


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon High School base-
ball coach Luis Leal appears to
have uncovered a previously
unknown pitching commodity in
senior infielder J.P. McCabe.
McCabe threw a complete
game Monday as the Dolphins
defeated Class 3A Archbishop
Carroll in Miami, 4-2. He gave up
just one earned run, walked no bat-
ters and surrendered only five hits.
The senior also pitched a com-
plete game in a 5-1 defeat of
Lenoir City High School, which
traveled from Tennessee to play
the Dolphins last Tuesday.
"He hasn't pitched for
Marathon in the five years I've
been here, but he throws strikes
and that's what we need. We'll
keep going to him when we need


him," Leal said.
McCabe's emergence couldn't
have come at a better time for the
Dolphins, as junior No. 1 starter
Toby Eigner strained a bicep
prior to a scheduled start against
Palmer Trinity last week. Leal
said Eigner was feeling better and
should make the start today
against Keys rival Coral Shores.
Leal said McCabe and the
Dolphins were locked in a pitch-
er's duel early on Monday, as
each team remained scoreless
until the bottom of the fourth
inning. A couple Dolphins field-
ing mishaps led to a Bulldog run.
A runner reached on an error,
advanced to second on a passed
ball and scored with two outs
after a routine fly ball was
dropped to give Carroll a 1-0


Conchs host Classic


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
softball team, which is trying to
improve by playing tough teams,
will face another one this week-
end when it plays Riverdale of
Fort Myers twice at the Back
Yard in a. pared-down Conch
Classic.
The games will be at 7 p.m.
Friday and 11 Saturday morning.
Two teams withdrew from the
tournament, leaving only the
Conchs, Riverdale and Marathon.
Marathon will play Riverdale
at 5 Friday.
*Riverdale, a 4A school like
Key West, is 12-2 and winning its
games by an average score of 12-
1. The Raiders have four players
batting .500 or better.
They also have two strong
left-handed pitchers in Liana
Derringer (56 strikeouts in 27
innings) and Allora Miller. They
both easily defeated the Conchs
in Key West last spring.
The Conchs (7-8) have won
two consecutive games and are
led by pitcher Lindsay Yochum,
center fielder Kristen Babich,
second baseman Jianna
Hernandez and first baseman
Lauren Wells.
Because it has been competi-
tive against 5A and 6A teams in
two Miami tournaments, Key
West should be better prepared
for the Raiders than it was last


season
"Playing in those tournaments
was very valuable," coach David
Gootee said. "We know if we
bring our best game we can hang
with any club we will face in the
playoffs."
The Conchs are 4-4 in District
16-4A, tied with Monsignor
Pace, with one game remaining at
St. Brendan.


lead.
The Dolphins (2-11) would
answer with two runs in the top of
the sixth to take a 2-1 lead. Senior
catcher Chris Garrett singled and
Sean O'Connor walked to put
men on first and second base with
one out.
Leal said he called a hit and
run, which was fielded by the
first baseman and flipped to the
pitcher for the out at first. But
Leal waved Garrett around from
second base, catching the Carroll
hurler off guard and allowing him
to score.
O'Connor later scored when
Mike Kuck hit a two-out single
down 0-2 in the count.
The Bulldogs answered back
with a run in the bottom of the
sixth inning, but Leal said the
Dolphins handled the late game
pressure well.
"We did something we
haven't done all year a two-
out rally in the seventh inning,"
he said.
With two outs and no one on
base, junior Nick Bertiaux and
McCabe singled and both
advanced on a passed ball.
Garrett singled them home to
give the Dolphins a 4-,2 lead it
would not surrender.
"All year in that situation
things have gone against us,"
Leal said. "It was an all-around
team victory."
Marathon visits Coral Shores
today at 4 p.m. and will host the
Hurricanes April 9 at 7 p.m.

all-time discus list.
"I throw it about 40 to 50
times a day," he said. "I've done
130 feet in practice."
He said his dad Steve was a
discus champion in Illinois who
once threw it 187 feet. "I'm just
trying to follow in his footsteps,"
the sophomore said.
And what's the appeal of the
discus toss to a big kid who's a
lineman on the football team?
"You spin, whip it and watch it
glide," Pribramsky said. "It's
cool."
Despite the efforts of Mathis
and Pribramsky, the Conchs lost
their only home meet of the sea-
son, the boys, 68-64, and the
girls, 105-23


Still, there were some shining
moments.
All three boys relay teams
won, including the 4x800 team of
Helmer Williams, Zach Martin,
Cale Hartle and Zach Harden.
Harden also won the 1600-meter
run in 5:04.8, and Eric Lowe took
the 800-meter run in 2:13.12.
Phillip Young was on two
winning relay teams, was fourth
in the 200-meter dash, second in
the long jump and, participating
in the high jump for the first time,
won it by clearing 5-10. "He can
do 6-3 or 6-4," coach Rick
Ridenour said.
For the girls, the 4x400 relay
team of Krizzie Menez, Rachel
Rivet, Courtney Walker and
Daphne Barnett won in 3:28.35.
Menez also win the 100-meter
dash in 13.1.

Raiders top Canes


HURRICANES / From 22

Other teams signed up for
the TallahassFe tournament
include host Lincoln High,
Jensen Beach, Port St. Lucie,
Brookwood (Ga.) Academy,
Treasure Coast and North
Florida Christian.
It's a top-flight field,
Coral Shores coach Jeff
Meyers said, "including sev-
eral teams that won state
championships in the last few
years."
The play should sharpen
the Upper Keys squad for the
upcoming conference and
district tournaments, he said.
On Monday, defending
District 16-3A champion
Gulliver Prep evened the
score against Coral Shores,
posting a 5-2 win in a make-
up game.


The Hurricanes (7-6) upset
the Raiders by the same score
last week in Islamorada.
Senior transfer Jorge
Suarez, wvho-got the mound
decision in the win, took the
loss Monday.
"Jorge again pitched very
well against them," Meyers
said of 'Suarez's five-hit,
four-strikeout effort. He
walked three.
"We only had four hits
ourselves," Meyers said. "We
had several fielding and
base-running mistakes that
hurt us."
Senior Chris Noble's first-
inning home run was Coral
Shores' biggest highlight
from the Monday game
played at Florida Christian.
Results from a Tuesday
game against St. Joseph's of
' Philadelphia were pending at

Lark ends on a low note


Tennis Conchs
split against
La Salle's Lions
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


In his final home match, Key
West High School senior Nick
Lark played perhaps the best
tennis of the season. His oppo-
nent, however, was just too
good.
Lark, playing with a white
FSU cap on backward, made
some great shots Monday after-
noon but was forced into too
many errors by La Salle's Mario
Samson and lost, 8-2.
Samson, who stood out in a
bright lime shirt, parlayed an
all-around game with an unflap-


able demeanor. He was as
tough at the net as he was at the
baseline, and rarely did he need
a second serve.
"He's a real tennis player,"
Key West coach Paul Findlay
said. "He plays in tournaments
year round."
Late in the match, a fan said
to Lark, "Hang in there."
"I'm trying," said Lark, who
no longer resembles the sullen
player he was earlier in the sea-
son.
In the final game, Lark
served an ace, hit an overhead
winner and hit a deep ball that
Samson couldn't handle on his
backhand side. But with a 40-30
lead, Lark double-faulted to let
Samson get to deuce. Samson
eventually won when a Lark


forehand sailed over the end
line.
"I played all right," Lark said
afterward, "but it's always tough
in this kind of wind. That kid
was real good, the second-best
player I've played this year."
The Key West boys lost, 4-3,
with Justin Tomita winning, 8-6,
and George Clark winning, 8-1.
Tomita and Clark teamed up for
an 8-4 doubles victory, but Lark
and Nick Scaimmacca lost, 8-5,
in No. 1 doubles. "We did better
than I expected," Findlay said.
The Conch girls won, 7-0.
Gabby Scammacca, at No. 1,
defeated Nina Taylor, 8-3. Sarah
Fitzsimmons won, 8-3, Rae
Lark won, 8-1, and Laura
Kaczkowski won, 8-0.
Scammacca and Fitzsimmons
also won No. 1 doubles, 8-2.


Country Day closes out Canes


5 seniors see
their final
lacrosse match
Keynoter Staff

Coral Shores' boys lacrosse
team ended its season Monday
with a 12-1 loss at Miami
Country Day.
The loss apparently will
keep the Hurricanes out of the
four-team bracket for the dis-
trict tournament.
The scheduled regular-sea-
son finale, a home game this
week against North Broward
Prep, was cancelled by
Broward.
"We had moments of very


good play but there were just
too many breakdowns on
offense and defense,"
Hurricane coach Erik Bryan
said after the loss at Country
Day.
Dropped balls, errant passes
and spotty defense contributed
to the loss, he said.
Defender Chris Rini missed
the game with an injury, and
the absence of his "shutdown
presence" was evident, the
coach said.
"Hats off to MCD, they
played a good game," Bryan
said, adding, "We are definite-
ly a much better team than a
12-1 loss to Country Day."
"I'm just sorry we couldn't


have sent our seniors D.J.
Farr, Jake Pinder, Robert
Desantis, Billy Hart and Elvis
Sosa out with a win," Bryan
said. "It will be very tough to
replace those guys next sea-
son."
The Hurricanes won their
opening game but struggled
since,

Go mad for sharks


3rd installment
of Madfin Shark
sees some changes

How do you improve on near
perfection? That's the question
I'm sure Jose Wejebe, Tim
Schick and Steve Bowman have
been pondering since last year's
Quiznos Madfin Shark Series
aired on ESPN2.
After a captains' meeting last
TTuesday
C m- night at the

Marina on


f where they
prepared to
film this

three-day
event, I

Cal Sutphin they've fig-
ured it out.
"Viewers want to see sharks
up close and handled properly.
We've proved that catching and
releasing a shark is even more
exciting than seeing one hit the
dock dead," says Madfin creator
Jose Wejebe of Summerland Key.
"This was our answer to the kill
tournaments that have aired in the
past. These are fish that should be
admired and respected, not
feared."
So again, how do you improve
on this? Here's how: With the
new host, Mehgan Heaney-Grier.
For those who don't recognize
her name, she's the person you
think of in the Florida Keys as
one who's in tune with anything
that swims. Heaney-Grier has set
a free-diving single-breath record
that made her a Keys household
name. With friends Manny Puig
and Mark Rackley, she's had a
successful show .on Animal
Planet and since been in movies
and has as a successful modeling
career.
She also is a marked improve-
ment over the faceless British
narrator who kept viewers abreast
of the action over the first two
seasons of the Madfin. Bringing
Heaney-Grier in is not the worst
idea I've ever seen. Actually,
quite the opposite.
Viewers will notice more of a
realitv-TV feeling in the third


Mehgan Heaney-Grier, host of this year's Quiznos Madfin Shark

installment, which is due to air on
ESPN2 April 6. That alone will
help people at home feel more of
what the captains feel, their anxi-
ety each night as teams are elimi-
nated, and the anticipation each
morning as the teams await the
signal to fish.
The lineup of teams this year
will see a couple of changes,
although the quality of.captains
remains top rate.
Team Quiznos features R.T.
Trosset of Key West and Carter
Andrews of Crooked Island,
Bahamas. Team Under Armour
will have Rush Maltz and Stevie
Impallomeni, both from Key
West. *
The Lake & Bay team will
have "Bear" Holeman of Key
West and Bo Johnson of Cape
Coral. Rob Fordyce from
Homestead and Bill Brown of
Watch-Hill, R.I., comprise Team
Mercury.
Team Andros Boatworks will
have Robert Moore and Mike
Mahan, both from Port Charlotte.
Key West-based Steve Rodgers


and Jake Perry make up Team
Academy Sports & Outdoors.
And Madfinm two-time winner
- so the only winner ever -
Tony Murphy of Key West pairs
with Carl Marsiello, also of Key
West, as Team Lowe's.
What's refreshing this year is
Wejebe's commitment to the fish-
ermen in the Keys. A majority of
the captains competing in this
year's events are the working-
man's blue-collar guys who fish
here every day like Murphy,
Rogers, Maltz, Trossett,
Holeman, Fordyce, Stevie
Impallomeni and Jake Perry.
Steve Bowman, tournament
director, made clear that competi-
tors will be docked points for
what organizers consider aggres-
sive gaffing techniques. It has
been customary for anglers to
control the shark by gaffing the
bottom jaw and lifting the head
out of the water to remove the
hook. This technique tends to
make the shark go ballistic.

Time for the 'tails, and mix in some cobia


And learn how
to catch them
at free seminar
Yellowtail, anyone?
Fishing on the oceanside of
the islands has been dominated
by this species for several weeks
now. It's not just that there are
lots of them, but very large spec-
imens have been caught with rel-
ative ease by anglers who admit-
tedly don't. know a whole lot
about targeting these normally
finicky fish.
This past week, we had a very
bright full moon, an occurrence
that traditionally reduces the reef
fishing to a virtual crawl. Yet'the
'tails just kept coming, according
to many anglers that went any-


Cae way.
C Here's
another
w bright side
to this
action it
is not limit-
o. ed to the
S outer reef
S line. Most
of these big
fish have
w been taken
in 45-feet-
Dave Navarro plus of
water
along the drop-off, yet plenty of
them are in numerous locations
on the oceanside of the islands.

I Weekly Boat Test


a few hours for a group that did
not want to venture out in its
small boat all the way to the reef.
Other stories like that abound
this week in areas off Duck Key
near the inside edge of Hawk
Channel all the way through Big
Pine Key and further west. It is
common to have good yellowtail
fishing this time of year but it is
unusual to have them so domi-
nate throughout the area, both in
shallow water as well as along the
edge. I'm not complaining by any
means with the exception not
having enough opportunities to
go after them.
With the winds we've had
lately, the sailfish have really
turned on. There have been sever-
al double-digit catch days on
plenty of the local charter boats
the past week or so and this trend
should continue into April. Look
for tailing fish on the days the
fair-weather sailor would not like
to be out there and you should
find them working just past the
edge of the reef.
Another species that made a
very good appearance the past
week or so has been the cobia.
They have been found along the
edge of the reef, just offshore
traveling along in 100 to 250 feet
of water as well as in Hawk
Channel. This is a regular push
we see every year and they seem
to be right on time.
You don't find the huge


schools like on a wreck in the bay
with 30-plus fish in.one spot, but
you will find two to five fish
working past an area you may be
fishing. This is always an exciting
event when they show in your
chum line or you spot them work-
ing along the surface when you
are trolling just offshore.
Just try to tell me you don't
get lit up when you see a 20- to
50-pound fish working around
your boat and have me believe it.
Add this action to the mutton
snapper and the grouper that have
also been frequenting the reef,
along with some very nice lane
snapper, and you have one venue
of fishing that is hard to top.
There are still plenty of kings
around as well as mackerel,
which are always something spe-
cial when they hit. They, along
with cobia, are this week's topic
at our free fishing seminar at 6
p.m. Thursday at our Marine
Educational Center, mile marker
50 bayside, where we will cover
what is goirig on as well as what
to expect in the next few weeks.
We'll also talk about techniques
and tackle best used.
There is one species where it
hasn't mattered what tackle or
technique you use; they just
haven't been there in any good
number dolphin. We have had
some small shots but they're not
really going yet. It is sort of simi-
lar to watching water boil you

know it is going to get there even-
tually; we just don't have any
bubbles coming to the top yet.
There have been spotty catches
of a few and occasional hits of
small schools that have excited
anglers, but as far as consistency
goes, nada. I know of several
groups that ventured out more
than 30 miles and found five or six
fish they had to measure to keep
and a few they had to throw back.
Good thing they didn't think about
how many gallons of fuel to the
pound of flesh it cost them.
They will be coming and it
could happen any day. When it
does, it usually is similar to some-
one opening a valve to begin the
flood.

Tune in


April 6

SUTPHIN / From 25

Schick, the coordinating
producer, felt it could be done
better this year.
"I felt that some captains
were overly aggressive at han-
dling the fish boat side in the
past and that is something we
feel needed to be looked at
more closely. Anything that
will make the viewer at home
wince, we want to avoid."
Also, a different scoring
system will add more planning
and strategy by the seven
teams. In the two years prior,
teams could catch as many
sharks of one species they
want. If lemon sharks are
worth 100 points and a team
got into them heavily, then it
could just sit in one spot and
rack up the score.
Now, only four sharks total
of each species will be allowed.
You catch your fourth lemon of
the day, go hunt a hammerhead,
a bull or a blacktip.
To find out how the teams
fared, what was caught and
whether Murphy repeated, tune
in ESPN2 April 6 at 9:30 t 9:30 a.m.
and watch it like it was hap-
pening in front of your eyes as
if you were riding along.
