College sees discord


Some welcome

not so much
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Tension is brewing at Florida
Keys Community College after
administrators responding to a
critical state audit instituted


tighter accountability on faculty
workloads and pay.
The audit, conducted by the
Florida Auditor General's Office,
showed management and faculty
flaws from the previous college
administration headed by then-
President Bill Seeker.
Now faculty and other
employees say they want to know
when a policy is changed. And


top administrators say the faculty
needs to reach a new level of
responsibility.
Those in the trenches say the
discord gives the appearance of
an institution divided.
"There is a point where every-
one has their own kind of feel-
ing," faculty Senate President
Chester Kalb said. "Some people
are very happy with everything,

The defendant in an Upper
Keys murder case apologized in
writing this week for an "outburst
in court."
Andrew S. Beckner, 43, wrote
to Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Luis Garcia that Beckner's
self-described "outburst" at a
March 4 hearing was the result of
a bipolar disorder.
"I normally don't act like
that," he wrote, contending he
has "begged and begged for help"
from staff at the Stock Island
Detention Center, where he
remains jailed pending trial for
the Aug. 24, 2007, slaying of his
girlfriend, Georgia Morgan.
Beckner also submitted a
three-page motion, handwritten
in ink on a yellow legal pad,
seeking to have the Monroe
County Public Defender's Office
removed from his case.
The Upper Keys Public
Defender's Office previously
represented Morgan the
woman Beckner is accused of
killing as a client "on one
more than one case," Beckner
wrote.


"Their interests are so adverse
and hostile that the office of pub-
lic defender cannot continue to
ethically represent [Beckner],"
the defendant wrote.
Garcia has not responded to the
motion, according to the case file.
Beckner surrendered after a
six-hour standoff in the Silver
Shores subdivision, near mile
marker 96 on Key Largo.
Morgan, 46, was found shot to
death in a home at the oceanfront
over-age-55 community.
Beckner, who ran- a lawn-care
business, also is accused of firing
shots at deputies as they respond-
ed to a 911 call made by neighbors
at 7:30 a.m. No one else was hit.
Beckner had several previous
arrests, including for domestic bat-
tery on Morgan. He is scheduled
for May 6 pretrial motions, with a
tentative trial date of May 19.

Arenas case
The Morgan killing was the
second murder in the Upper Keys
last summer.
Manuel Prieto Arenas, 47, has
a tentative trial date of April 28
following pretrial hearings.
Arenas was identified by wit-


Takeover negotiations continue


HOSPITAL / From 1

ical staff member confirmed to
the Keynoter the visit took place.
"Our folks visit area hospitals
all the time; that's not unusual,"
Baptist Corporate Vice President
Jo Baxter said, adding she was
unaware of any talks with
Fishermen's Hospital.
Asked whether it's unusual to
bring along an engineer to
inspect the facility and financial
officers to examine the books,
Baxter said, "I'm not sure that's
what they were doing."
Naples-based HMA's man-
agement lease with the hospital
ends in the summer of 2011, but
Burns said a changeover may
happen sooner than later.
"I think there are people here
with the goal of getting them in
here by June. This is more than a
negotiation for the lease after-
ward; this is a negotiation for a
buyout," Burns said.
"-The current lease expires in
.a, Little ove.r..tbree years; there's,


no renewal provision in the lease
itself," local attorney and associ-
ation board member Thomas
Wright said. "So it's understand-
able that people are going to be
wondering."
"Our licensure unit has not
received any information
regarding a change of ownership
for Fishermen's Hospital," said
Shelisha Durden, spokeswoman
for the state Agency for Health
Care Administration.
One factor in a potential buy-
out is believed to be the hospi-
tal's ability to achieve a critical-
access designation, made possi-
ble by the Medicare Rural
Hospital Flexibility Program.
According to the Tennessee
Hospital Association Web site,
critical access is "an alternative
for, small, rural hospitals that
creates the potential for
enhanced reimbursement from
Medicare."
Fishermen's Hospital Assoc-
iation President Mary Schindler,
designated spokesman for the
.group, Adid -not, return .repeated


calls over several weeks for
comment about the Baptist
rumors. But in a previous dis-
cussion, Schindler told the
Keynoter the association's non-
profit status and HMA's for--
profit status are incompatible in
acquiring critical access desig-
nation.
.Bums said HMA is eligible
for critical access and that it
"should have been done five
years ago."
"If you look around the coun-
try at other for-profit hospitals,
some are critical access. That
doesn't restrict you," Bums said.
"The Board of Trustees would
have to agree to it; they have
their own reasons why they did-
n't want to."
Fishermen's Chief Executive
Officer Kim Bassett was
unavailable for comment, but
has previously told the Keynoter
she discussed critical access
with the hospital association.
"Kim wouldn't have been
working on it if it weren't" pos-
.sible,.Burns said,. .. . -


nesses as the man who shot Maria
Elena Proenza, 39, to death in the
middle of Key Largo's Hibiscus
Lane at 7:15 a.ri July 6, 2007.
Proenza and Arenas reported-
ly were in a dispute over owner-
ship of a travel trailer they pur-
chased together while in a rela-
tionship.
Arenas reportedly got out of
his 1979 black pickup truck and
shot Proenza three times in the
chest and back as she fell, and in
the head as she lay on the street
- with a .45-caliber handgun.
Arenas fled from Hibiscus
Park and remained at large for
most of the day, despite an inten-
sive manhunt. Around dusk, he
turned himself into the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office on
Plantation Key.
He later led detectives to
woods near Trade Winds Plaza
where a handgun was recovered.
The transcript of July 31
arraignment hearing, conducted
with a court interpreter for the
defendant, indicates Arenas was
surprised when his attorney
entered a not-guilty plea.
"But I'm guilty," Arenas said,
according to the transcript.
Garcia entered the preliminary
not-guilty plea.

and some are disgusted."
The audit findings are from
the 2006-07 fiscal year, which
ended June 30. College President
Jill Landesberg-Boyle started in
June, after Seeker retired from a
27-year career.
Landesberg-Boyle described
challenges she inherited, among
them dealing with the audit find-
ings. They say some professors
weren't properly documenting
use of their time, and the institu-
tion overpaid under-qualified
employees, among other things.
Landesberg-Boyle and
Provost Charles Shaffer' now
require staff to fill out time
sheets. Also, caps set by profes-
sors that limited the number of
students per class were lifted dur-
ing Christmas break, reportedly
without professors knowing.
Documents obtained by the
Keynoter show that certain pro-
fessors received extra pay for
teaching more classes with fewer
students.
"It's not so much the issue the
cap was lifted," Kalb said. "It
was just how it was done." Those
decisions shouldn't be surprises,
he said.
Landesberg-Boyle said she
was adhering to Florida Depart-
ment of Education class-size stan-
dards when she lifted the caps.
And as far as timesheets go,
"I'm the president and I'fill out a
sheet for that," Landesberg-
Boyle said.
"I think there is a group of
three or four people who do not

want to move forward with the
new vision and are upset over
changes," Landesberg-Boyle said.
She confirmed that at least 13
employees had either resigned or
retired since she took her position
10 months ago; some left on
good terms and others did not. So
far, the only fired employee was
Marine Propulsion Faculty
Director Tim Jones.
"I have a fiduciary responsi-
bility," Landesberg-Boyle said.
"My goal is grow this institution
into all that can, and should be."
And conflict resolution coun-
selor Elisa Levy was called in to
assist the administration and fac-
ulty work through some issues.
"I know of no college in the
country where there is no tension
between the faculty and presi-
dent," board Chairman Ed Scales
said. "I'll meet with anybody,
anytime, anywhere, but that
doesn't mean that I'm about to
micromanage the day-to-day
operations of the college. It's not
a management paradigm that
works."
Scales said the board operates
under the Sunshine Law and its
purpose is not to evaluate any
college employees besides the
president, which it will do at her
year mark in June.
Kalb wrote a report to the
board from some faculty listing
increased enrollment as a posi-

Voting ongoing


in Islamorada


Keynoter Staff

Early voting is under way to
fill Seat 3 on the Islamorada
Village Council.
In the runoff, for which the
actual Election Day is April 8, are
incumbent Mayor David
Boerner, who received 43.5 per-
cent of the vote in the March 11
general election, and Jim Rhyne,
who tallied 29.2 percent.
That caused the runoff, since
none of the candidates received
more than 50 percent of the vote.
David Purdo was the third candi-
date and was eliminated with
27.3 percent.
Early voting is weekdays from
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Monroe
County Supervisor of Elections
Office at the Plantation Key
Government Center, mile marker


88.8.
On Election Day, polls are
open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Photo ID is
needed. Polling sites are the gov-
ernment center; Islamorada
library at mile marker 81.7; and
Immanuel Lutheran Church, 108
Ocean Drive, Plantation Key.
Whoever wins will be seated
on the council April 10.
In the March 11 general elec-
tion, incumbent Don Achenberg
defeated Paul Bates for Seat 1,
Jill Zima Borski topped Rod
Halenza in Seat 2 and incumbent
Michael Reckwerdt beat Ron
Levy for Seat 5.
Previously, Seat 4 Council-
woman Cathi Hill was automati-
cally re-elected when no one filed

Keys Opinion


This proposed permit

has the wrong stripes

It may come as a shock to Florida's estimated 1 million-plus
recreational boaters to learn they could become victims of the
dreaded Zebra mussel.
Since that European invasive piggybacked here in the bilges
of commercial vessels plying the Great Lakes, enforcers of the
Clean Water Act have been looking for ways to restrict more
exotic stowaways.
As a result, all vessels regardless of size may soon be
required to obtain a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination
System permit.
That could prove not only costly and time consuming, but no
one even knows how the feds could ramp up to enforce such an
edict.
Just to grasp the potential magnitude of this, consider there
are 13 million state-registered recreational boats compared to
8,400 ships with ballast water tanks.
As detailed in Wednesday's Keynoter, complying with the
complicated permit process "could be very messy and very
expensive for boaters," according to Boat U.S., the nation's
largest recreational boating group.
U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat, has introduced
a bill that would forestall a Sept. 30 deadline for enactment of
the permits for all vessels.
Obviously, recreational boaters don't want to increase risk of
pollution to Keys waters but at the same time, they aren't
piloting ocean-going cargo ships with bilge tanks carrying who
knows what kind of organisms.
Both Nelson and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) co-authored
Sen. Bill 2766, which provides a legislative exclusion for
"recreational boaters and anglers from the federal and state per-
mitting requirements under the Clean Water Act."
Why the hubbub over exotic snails first found in Lake Erie
around 1988? Because it's not just the one invasive species.
Since the 1800s, an estimated 160 exotic pests have been
introduced to the Great Lakes, according to Great Lakes Wiki,
a Web site launched by Michigan State University that tracks
regional environmental news.
About 139 of the exotics can be traced to south Eastern
Europe, and researchers believe about 70 percent of those were
introduced by the release of ballast water from ships traversing
the lakes.
They're not just killing off native species of fish and mol-
lusks. Zebra mussels grow in such vast numbers that they clog
water plant intakes, causing major repair expenses.
While a crackdown on bilge water discharge is clearly need-
ed, it's far-fetched to also apply that edict to the owner of a 16-
foot bay skiff.
Hopefully, Nelson's legislative remedy will get approval in
time.

There's an alternative to central sewers


EDITOR:
In a time when local, state and federal govern-
ments are finding unique and ludicrous ways to
continually fleece taxpayers out of every dollar
possible, the central sewer system debacle, the
wisdom of which is itself an extensive folly of
massive proportions, is not only beyond the tax-
payers' ability to finance but is designed to be a
continued monthly expense for taxpayers to
endure.
With the audacity of the state Legislature
imposing an unfunded mandate requiring the tax-
payers of Monroe County to spend more than
$300 million to install a central sewer system
with so many negatives in initial costs, construc-
tion logistics, hook-up fees, relentless monthly
expenses, hurricane vulnerability and question-
able effectiveness in achieving its intended objec-
tive, it's incredible it was even seriously consid-
ered, let alone attempted.
Supposedly the state further intends to levy
fines for missing the completion date of July
2010, a deadline as unrealistic as the project is
unaffordable. If we can't finish a mandated proj-
ect they refuse to help fund by the allotted dead-
line due to lack of funding, then the asinine reme-
dy would be to impose fines. As usual, a govern-
ment solution completely counterproductive and
an impediment to achieving the final product.


In addition to this mandated solo excursion
into financial oblivion coupled with the punitive
fines, there is one more act of irrational fiscal
idiocy. The state further proposes that dwellings
not hooked up by the 2010 deadline be required
to temporarily install advanced treatment units at
$15,000 to $30,000 each. If they are adequate to
be temporarily effective, then they should be ade-
quate in lieu of the central system itself.
There comes a time to act in the electorate's
best interest, cut your losses, finish the sections
that are already started and abandon the rest of
this madness.
Since the original intent was to eliminate
cesspits that are truly detrimental to coastal water
quality, the realistic answer is to require cesspits
be replaced with advanced treatment units, retro-
fit existing tanks as such units and maybe install
a reverse osmosis unit between the tank and drain
field. That would produce a waste product closer
to drinkable water than anything produced by the
central system at a miniscule fraction of the cost
and without the ongoing monthly expense or hur-
ricane exposure of a central system that, once
damaged, can be exceedingly expensive to repair,
along with costs for trucking out waste while
waiting for those repairs.

Store staff needs to work harder

We deserve better treatment than what we

Keys help family cope
EDITOR:
The city of Marathon should be proud of the
caring and generosity shown by so many of its
private and public officials.
After last week's tragic loss of our dear fam-
ily member Judy Zagorski [killed in a freak
eagle-ray accident], we were overwhelmed by
the kindness exhibited by many of the
Marathon residents.
We truly appreciate the thoughtfulness and
care shown by staff of Fishermen's Hospital,
Marathon Fire Rescue, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (specifically
Carlo Morato), Marathon City Manager
Michael Puto and staff, Conch Realty (Clare
and Adam Angermann), Monroe County
Sheriff's Office and our dear Marathon neigh-
bors following Judy's death last week.
Throughout the difficult first days, their effi-
cient and considerate actions helped us to begin
to cope with the events of the day and the time
that lay before us. We know we haven't begun
to thank everyone Who helped and those who
prayed, but we do appreciate everything that
this great community did to support us.

His excuses might be a difficult economy,
lack of staff, no training, low salaries. What else
is new? Every business in town has those prob-

Martinez was for tax fairness


EDITOR:
I think perhaps that Editor Larry
Kahn may have gotten his facts
screwed up when he'wrote of Gov.
Bob Martinez being "slid out of
office" as a result of his institution of
a sales tax on services.
There has been a sales tax on most
services in Florida for many years
(check your auto repair bill the next .
time your car is in the shop). My rec-


collection is that he merely wanted to
remove all sales tax exemptions on
services. He was successfully painted
by the Democrats and some influential
groups like the media and the trial
lawyers (who just happen to have such
exemptions on their services) as want-
ing to raise taxes and was unsuccess-
ful in his reelection bid. as a result.

to thank everyone for the help and

in just two hours.
I would especially like to thank
Girl Scout Troop 749 for volunteer-
ing. its time to assist with various


farm tasks, and Just4Kids for its
lovely animal face painting for the

big thank you to the Easter bunny

One individual who has so very

instrumental in all the events that take
place at the Marathon Community

Director Jimmy Schmidt. We wish to


acknowledge Jimmy for his unselfish
cooperation by providing the Pigeon

ting for our event. Jimmy was never
more than a phone call away when it
came to resolving issues that arose -

Bash shows success of gallery's new location


EDITOR:
Sometimes you just need to share
your feelings with the community.
This is one of those times for me as I
reflect back on the Feb. 29
Bougainvillea Bash at the newly relo-
cated Bougainvillea House Gallery.
I wanted to take a few moments to
thank those folks who took the time
to come and leap with us into our
new location. All the artists provided
their own dishes of food and we had
plenty of drinks for all those who
attended. The music of Key West
harpist Steve Allerton filled the starlit
evening and throughout the night, we
raffled off 22 original pieces of work
by all of our artists. We had lots of
locals win and more than a few win-
ners were in the crowd to clam their
prize. The other pieces won by our
out-of-town visitors who helped sup-
port our raffle will be shipped free to
their homes.
I felt extremely proud as I looked


around to see so many familiar faces
and so many friends who joined us.
The entire move of the gallery and
this bash have been a labor of love
for all of us artists and we are grateful
for the community's support in our
new location. Our gallery represents
artists from throughout the entire
chain of islands, from Key Largo to
Key West, and we all enjoyed plan-
ning and being at the bash to wel-
come our guests.
We have accomplished this move
living up to our motto of local artists
working together.
My thanks, too, for the media's
help in getting the word out. We real-
ly do appreciate all they do. Finally, a
special thanks to our new neighbors
at the Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce and Visitors Center, who
have been so helpful and supportive
of our move.

Put old septic tanks to new use


EDITOR:
To quote the Bible, "We should beat
our swords into plowshares." In other
words, convert obsolete items into some-
thing useful.
Our new sewer system is going to cre-
ate a lot of obsolete septic tanks. Current
code requirements require that they be
pumped out and filled. Fill dirt is getting
scarce in the Keys; it has to be imported
just like our water. So why can't our septic
tanks be pumped out, sterilized and con-
verted into cisterns to hold water for land-

With the continuing water shortage in

New administrator could be chosen this week


Public can
meet candidates
Tuesday night
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission could decide this week on
a new county administrator.
It's a whirlwind schedule, with
four candidates scheduled for
interviews individually by each
of the five county commissioners
Wednesday.
The interviews begin at 9 a.m.


at the Harvey Government center
on Truman Avenue in Key West.
At 3:15 p.m., the commission
will convene in a public meeting
at the Harvey center where each
candidate will be offered a
chance to give a five-minute pres-
entation. After that, the commis-
sion might vote in a new adminis-
trator.
If the commission agrees on
its choice for administrator, the
commissioners will then decide
who will negotiate a salary with
that candidate.
During a March 20 workshop
in Key West, the commission
whittled the 35 applicants for the
job down to .four. Two of the
finalists, Kevin Madok and
Reggie Paros, work for the coun-
.ty.. The two others, Roman
Gastesi and Patrick Salerno, live
in South Florida.


Tax


The four were invited down
for the interviews at their own
expense.
The interviews Wednesday
morning will rotate the candi-
dates among the commissioners
so each will have a chance for
one-on-one questions. The sys-
tem is similar to the one used
three years ago when Tom Willi
was hired. The commission fired
Willi without cause in December.
Before Wednesday's meeting,


which is broadcast on Comcast
Cable Channel 76, a public recep-
tion with the candidates is set for
6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the
Beachside Resort and Conference
Center on North Roosevelt
Boulevard, Key West.
Willi's compensation package,
including salary and the county's
contributions for health insurance
and other benefits, totaled
$203,000 annually. He was hand-
ed $282,000 in severance when


his contract was terminated.
For his replacement, the posi-
tion was advertised as paying
between $107,000 and $150,000,
depending upon qualifications.
Deputy Administrator Debbie
Frederick stepped into the role of
interim administrator when Willi
was ousted but says she has no
desire to do the job long-term.
When she was bumped up to act-
ing administrator, Paros was
named acting deputy administrator.

Meet the administrator candidates


Keynoter Staff


The Monroe County Com-
mission has narrowed its list of
applicants for county administra-
tor from three dozen to four, all
of whom live in Florida. Two live
in the Keys and already work for
county government.
The commission is scheduled
to interview the following
Wednesday, with information
taken from their resumes and
cover letters:
Roman Gastesi, government
affairs director at the Miami office
of the Tew Cardenas law firm,
where he has worked since 2005.
He says he oversees a $2.3 mil-
lion budget and six employees.


Four years prior, he worked
for Miami-Dade County as direc-
tor of water management
(Miami-Dade County's Web site
lists a Water and Sewer
Department) and later the Office
of Intergovernmental Affairs.
From 1997 to 2001, he was a
regional director for the South
Florida Water Management
District.
He wrote that in Monroe, he
would bring people together,
inside and outside of the county,
on projects that produce environ-
mental and infrastructure benefits.
Kevin Michael Madok of
Key West has worked for the


Council nixes

Monroe County Clerk's Office
since 2004 as assistant finance
director. He is a certified public
accountant and worked for the
Tavernier accounting firm of
Mull &. Associates from 2002
until going to work for the coun-
ty.
Prior to that, he managed two
offshore investment portfolios
through a Keys firm and one in
Jupiter.
"I do not bring to the county
administrator position vague
management theory," he says in
his cover letter. "I bring strong
technical expertise and relevant
experience."
Reggie Paros of Marathon
is a 30-year employee of Monroe
County who currently heads the
Department of Housing and
Community Development and is
acting deputy county administra-
tor under interim Administrator
Debbie Frederick. He also over-
sees the county's airports. From


1988 until 2002, he directed the
county's Public Safety Division
and before that Emergency
Services.
Patrick Salerno: Former
city manager of Sunrise.
According to newspaper reports,
he resigned in January after 18
years on the job after a city com-
missioner asked for his resigna-
tion. According to Salerno's
resume, the city has a population
of 90,000. He wrote that he over-
saw 1,300 employees and an
annual budget of $380 million.
Before that, he served as
county manager in Cobb County,
Ga., for two years and as assis-
tant county manager for Volusia
County for five
During his tenure,'he wrote,
"Sunrise has become a major
entertainment-sports-retail cen-
ter, which has enabled it also to

A resolution sponsored by
Marathon City Councilman Don
Vasil calling upon various state
entities to allow residents and
businesses additional time to
meet the state's deadline to com-
ply with advanced wastewater
treatment standards was voted
down at Tuesday's meeting.
In fact, a motion by Vasil to
pass the resolution died without a
second, due mainly to the coun-
cil's belief asking for time exten-
sions prior to the July 1, 2010,
deadline is premature.
On Feb. 11, the council passed
a resolution indicating a commit-
ment by the city to complete the
city's sewer system, after estab-
lishing concrete assessment fig-
ures Feb. 4.
"This council has taken the
responsibility to complete waste-
water in a timely fashion and
therefore it is my opinion the
state should not be looking at
individuals or individual busi-
nesses any longer," Vasil said. "I
believe the state should put the
responsibility on the city and take
the heat off the small business
community."
Vasil said he sponsored the
resolution due to several
Marathon businesses receiving
letters from the state Department
of Environmental Protection stat-
ing package plants must be in
compliance with advanced stan-


dards by the deadline.
"I fear passing this now will
send the signal we don't have the
commitment. I don't want to pass
any resolution that makes it look
like we're backing away from
this community," Councilman
Mike Cinque said.
Cinque is among the Monroe
County residents to receive a let-
ter from DEP for a trailer park he
operates in the city.
Mayor Pete Worthington said
he was told by DEP South
District Branch Office Manager
Gus Rios that 256 of the letters
were sent out.
State Rep. Ron Saunders reit-
erated his contention that no
Keys sewer entity is likely to
receive a deadline extension, and
even asking for one at this point
is premature.
"The deadline is 2010 and if
we ask for extensions now, we
won't have a real picture of when
the need for the extension is,"
.Saunders said. "Maybe a year
from now would be a more
appropriate time."
Saunders said Marathon has
done "as much as we can expect
them to do," so waiting for poten-'
tial state and federal funding,
however unlikely, is a wise move.
"If Marathon moves ahead
and can't meet deadline, they
have a powerful argument," he
said.

officials scrambling for ways to
cut costs for the 2008-09 school
year.
Tuesday, the Monroe County
School Board heard ideas for
cost savings that included every-
thing from turning up the ther-
mostats in schools to offering
early-retirement incentives to
administrators.
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
told the board he's been working
with district attorney Richard
Collins on a plan to eliminate as
many as eight administrative
positions by providing incen-
tives for early retirement.
Neither Collins nor Acevedo
specified what those positions
were, but clarified that none of
the employees would be forcibly
eliminated.
Acevedo said that the School
District could also save money
through attrition by not hiring
replacements for a group of
administrators set to retire at the


end of 2009.
The general fund for the cur-
rent year is $91.8 million.
Assistant Facilities Director
Jeff Barrows proposed cutting
energy costs by about $282,000
by keeping classrooms at a tem-
perature of about 76 degrees and
running air conditioning only in
occupied classrooms.
"It's just trimming back this
appetite," Barrows said.
"Teachers stay seven and a half
hours and we're running the
schools' [air conditioning] at
nine and a half hours."
Barrows also asked Acevedo
to encourage principals to charge
for groups that use classrooms
after school.
"Every time we turn on a
room for a group, it's about 10
bucks," he said. "It doesn't
sound like much until you add
up three or four rooms per
school and multiply that by all
the schools for 365 days."
The board also unanimously
approved Acevedo's recommen-
dation to allow individual
schools to determine how they'll
handle cuts required by a reduc-


tion of about $6 million in the
current operating budget.
"If you do have a burning
desire [for a specific budget cut],
then say it now," Acevedo told
board members.
The board's efforts drew
praise from Key Largo Chamber
of Commerce President Jackie
Harder.
"On behalf of the Key Largo
Chamber of Commerce, its
members and the people they
employ, we really appreciate the
hard work you've done to bring
some taxation sense to this
process," Harder said.
School officials throughout
Florida are worried about a
November ballot initiative that
lets voters decide whether to
eliminate property taxes that pay
for schools and replace them
with a 1-cent sales tax.
Board member Debra Walker
said Florida has a very "volatile"
sales tax revenue that is less pre-
dictable than property taxes.
Board Chairman Steven
Pribramsky said that in addition
to an expected $3 -billion initial
cut in the state budget, schools
could face further cuts after the
November election.

Dick moves


to oust law firm


Request too
late to get
on the agenda
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

The firm that for years has
provided legal services to the
Monroe County School Board
remains contracted with the
School District for now.
At Tuesday's board meeting,
member John Dick stunned many
school officials when he request-
ed the board vote on whether to
terminate its contract with the
law firm Vernmis & Bowling with-
out cause.
Dick's request for the vote
wasn't included on the meeting's
agenda, and drew objections from
board member Debra Walker.
"John hasn't said what the
urgency is for it on today's agen-
da. I was given no advance notice
of this," she said.
Board policy states that unless
there are emergency circum-
stances, all agenda items must be
posted on the district Web site
seven days prior to the meeting.
Vemis & Bowling, a regional
firm with 10 offices in Florida,
two in Alabama and one in
Georgia, has been contracted
with the School District for
almost 10 years.
The firm's annual contract
was last renewed in October but
its retainer fee was reduced from
$8,000 per month to $6,400.

Dirk Smits also lost his rank as
the attorney in regular attendance
at board meetings after the board
awarded attorney Richard Collins
a $25,000 contract in September.
Collins and Vernis & Bowling
now share the legal load.
Collins told board members
they should not discuss the mat-
ter publicly if they plan to termi-
nate the contract without cause.
"If you discuss it," he said,
"you may inadvertently give rea-
sons that determine cause. I
advise you to remain as silent as
possible."
Collins said that if board
members did give cause for ter-
minating the contract, Vernis &
Bowling would have a reason to
file suit against the board if it did
not feel the cause was justified.
Florida's Sunshine Law,
which prohibits closed-door
meetings among most elected
officials; also prevents board
members from discussing the
issue privately.
"Something as serious as let-
ting go our attorney has to have a
serious discussion," Walker said,
adding, "this is ridiculous."
Board Chairman Steven
Pribramsky, originally in favor of
adding the vote to the agenda,
ultimately decided against it.
"I am not going to expose this
board to any legal liability," he
said. "We are not going to discuss
this on the agenda today."
Pribramsky told Dick to put
the item on the board's April 8
workshop agenda.

Singh gets his conference center


Tempers flare
before council
gives 3-2 OK
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

. The last time a certificate of
occupancy for a meeting space at
developer Pritam Singh's
Tranquility Bay Resort in
Marathon came up at council, it
was Singh who lost his cool.
At Tuesday's regular council
meeting, council members
showed their tempers, finally vot-
ing 3-2 to grant Singh a provi-
sional certificate to utilize con-
verted dormitory housing as a
conference center.
At its Feb. 26 meeting, the
council declined permission for
Singh to use the space due to his'
failure to follow through on a
June 2007 promise to build 12
affordable housing units at his
Coral Lagoon and Tranquility
Bay properties.
Nine of the units were


required, six from Tranquility and
three from Coral Lagoon, as part
of his development agreement
with the city. Singh pledged an
additional three units.
Singh threatened the city with
a lawsuit and accused it of using
its building department as a polic-
ing entity preventing him from
using the dorm space, for meet-
ings.
Mayor Pete Worthington and
Councilwoman Marilyn Tempest
agreed with Singh's contention
that granting the certificate would
mean a much-needed economic
boost to the community, while
councilmen Mike Cinque and
Don Vasil were adamant Singh's
feet be held to the fire.
"I think the conference room
has some economic benefit to the
city; it would do nothing but help
the economy," Worthington said.
"We agree he dropped the ball,
he's been reprimanded," Tempest
said, noting the city is not without
blame. "I think the economy of

ness to town we should work
with Mr. Singh."
Vasil and Cinque reiterated the
need for the current council not to
comply with the demands of
developers.
"Yes, [Singh] dropped the ball
and now we're going to give him
what he wants. This is the same
type of criticism that has brought
councils down before," Vasil
said. "We should be holding
developers to their promises and
not set a precedent for anyone
trying to get around what they
promised."
"The perception has been


councils have favored the devel-
opers and the big guy always gets
what he wants. This has nothing
to do with [Singh] personally, but
everyone has to play by the same
rules," Cinque said. "I think the
council is making a huge mis-
take."
Vice Mayor Chris Bull, the
obvious swing vote, said he
would support granting the cer-
tificate because Singh had a plan
to complete the affordable units.
"My major problem was we
were coming up here with a
request from the developer and
there was no plan for how they

"I don't think it's a real big

eps sewer firm


the firm.
Thursday, the council unani-
mously agreed to keep the firm,
E-Sciences, as engineering con-
sultant for a wastewater system
on the north half of Lower
Matecumbe Key. The council put
newly hired Village Manager
Kenneth Fields in charge of pay-
ing E-Sciences' invoices.
All five council members said
they're dissatisfied with E-
Sciences' progress and.that the
firm has done a poor job commu-
nicating with them, the public
and a steering committee formed
to keep tabs on the project.
The council hired E-Sciences
in October for administrative
services associated with a $3.8
million U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency grant to build
a decentralized wastewater treat-
ment system.
Decentralized systems -are
designed for rural areas with low
population density. They allow
homeowners to keep existing
septic systems, and collect only
liquids from homeowner tanks.
Liquids are then treated with
2010 compliance standards at
small local plants. Homeowners
are still responsible for pumping
out the solids.
The council originally
approved $160,000 for the entire
scope of E-Sciences' services,
which include planning and
design. It stipulated the money
would be doled out in $30,000
increments that hinge on the
council receiving full progress
reports.
Thursday, council members
said E-Sciences' latest report was
nearly identical to one submitted
more than two months ago when
costs were approaching $60,000.


"This whole report is a repeat
of what we got in January,"
Councilman Don Achenberg
said, "What has happened since
then?"
Steering committee Chairman
Charles Kupper agreed with
Achenberg, and said E-Sciences
has not sent a series of informa-
tive e-mails and direct mailings
that residents were promised.
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt asked Kupper and
other members of the committee
to inform Fields about problems.
"Welcome to Lower
Matecumbe," Reckwerdt, who
lives and owns a business on the
island, said to E-Sciences Project
Manager Jim Orioles, "After
what happened in Plantation Key
Colony, those of us that have the
honor of getting one of these sys-
tems are going to be a little bit
skeptical."
Fields said he would follow
the project closely, and asked
council members to let him han-
dle E-Sciences' invoices instead
of releasing the money in "arbi-
trary $30,000" increments.
Because the project is grant
funded, the EPA will later reim-
burse the village $120,000 for the
administrative costs.

Conservation cash
The council also voted to let
the Planning Department apply
for a state grant of up to $6.6 mil-
lion to purchase two properties
on Upper Matecumbe Key and
designate .the land for conserva-
tion.
The properties, owned by
brothers Daniel and Mark
Cockerham, total more than nine
acres and are home to endangered
tree cactus plants, Pilosocereus
polygons. The parcels are listed.

County board nixes boatlift license


Contractors
concerned about
seawall safety
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Photographs of failed boatlifts
helped sway a Monroe County
licensing board to reject a provi-
sional contractor's license
Tuesday.


Contractors opposed to the
boatlift-installation license pre-
sented several pages of photo-
graphs depicting boatlifts or
davits that collapsed.
"Their brochure was rather
startling," said Joseph Vetrick, a
Tavernier attorney who serves on
the county Contractors Examin-
ing Board. "Anybody who saw it
would say this is something we
must do to protect the public. The
pictures were quite stunning."


Contractors who turned out
for the Tuesday meeting in
Marathon praised the board's
decision.
"A thorough knowledge of
boatlift installation depends on
how much you know about
docks," said Murray Shatt of
Lifetime Docks and Lumber in
the Lower Keys.
"It's not going out and bolting
a davit into the dock. There have
been a lot of structural failures
because people think that's all
they have to do," said Shatt,


Arrested Realtor has strong roots


Henson remains-
jailed, accused
of sex abuse
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com

He's known around Key West
as a successful Realtor with
Realty Executives and as a for-
mer car salesman. His Web page
on Active Rain Real Estate
Network reaches out to cus-
tomers:
"For your next move, look to
Troy Henson: a name you can
trust."
But now Henson, 37, sits in a
cell at the Monroe County
Detention Center on Stock
Island following his Monday
arrest on three counts each of
sexual assault on a victim under
age 12 and lewd and lascivious
battery on a child under 16.
According to a Monroe
County Sheriff's Office police
report, the victim claimed
Henson started molesting him or
her at age 7 or 8. The victim also
-told authorities Henson commit-
ted the acts "too many times to
count," according to the report.
The allegations include many
separate offenses.
According to the report,
Henson admitted the crimes to
his wife Heather, who filed for
divorce Wednesday two days
after his arrest.
Several people characterized
the well-known Henson family
as honest and hardworking, and
expressed shock at his arrest.
A prominent Key West
Realtor, Bascom Grooms, who's
also president of the Key West
Chamber of Commerce, said


he's known Henson since ele-
mentary school.
"He was definitely a very
aggressive business person,"
Grooms said. "And had, what I
thought, was a strong future in
the real estate business. It's defi-
nitely shocking. I really feel bad


for the family."
Keys Federal Credit Union
Chairman Paul Mitchell says
he's known Henson's father
Steve for 40 years.
"That family has been suc-
cessful and honest," Mitchell
said. "What they haven't been is
in trouble."


regional director for the Florida
Marine Contractor's Association.
The Florida Keys Contractors
Association, represented by pres-
ident Rudy Krause, also objected
to the provisional boatlift license.
"The [marine contractor's]
license has been in place for a
long time," Shatt said. "We don't
want to see the license degraded."
Vetrick summarized the
licensing board's decision, "We
need to have marine engineering
done by marine engineers. It's a
public-safety thing."
Questions arose among Keys
contractors after the county
Building Department issued a
variation of the Class 2 Specialty
Engineering Contractor, Seawalls
and Small Docks license issued
for marine contracting.
Two applicants who did not
meet the engineering experience
or education requirements for it
sought approval to install
boatlifts and davits. Department
staff issued a temporary "boatlifts
only" version of the license.
Tuesday, the Contractors


Examining Board ruled the spe-
cial boatlift license does not exist
under Monroe County code, so it
was invalid.
"This was something done
without going through due
process, with no discussion"
before the examining board or
county commission, Vetrick said.
"I felt bad for the two people,
they were sincere," he said. "But
marine engineers better under-
stand the loads and stresses on
docks and seawalls."
Contractors also were con-
cerned that terms of the .provi-
sional license could extend to
installing pilings for seawalls or
single-family-houses.
"A lot of people came out to
the meeting," said John Annesser,
a contractor-with Atlantic Davits
and Boatlifts of the Keys. "We're
competitors but we have a lot of
respect for each other. We're just
trying to make Monroe County a
better place to live and work."
The people issued the provi-
sional permits were informed the
licenses could be rescinded.

Developer gets go-ahead


But land needed
to offset impact
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission voted unanimously to
reserve 16 affordable housing
building-permit allocations for
Big Pine Key landowner Richard
Beal, but the project is a long
way from happening, Beal said.
"The issue at this point is mit-
igation," he said, "and I see no
hope for settlement on the hori-
zon."
Beal has been working for
more than a year to put afford-
able housing on his property,
which'currently houses Skeeter's
Marine. He said the land, which
faces U.S. 1, is an ideal location
to build workforce housing but
the environmental sensitivity of
Big Pine is making it tough.
Growth on Big Pine and No
Name keys is limited by a habi-
tat conservation plan imposed as
a means to protect the endan-


gered Key deer and its habitat.
The plan requires a certain
amount of land be set aside for
conservation for every construc-
tion project.
The past year, the county has
been using publicly owned land
in exchange for mitigation for
new and redevelopment on the
island.
Beal's plans stalled last sum-
mer when county Giowth
Management Director Drew
Trivette noted the county does
not have enough land in its "mit-
igation bank" to offset the proj-
ect, which would be named Caya
Place. .
"After they offered Habitat
for Humanity to reserve alloca-
tions in the Upper Keys," Beal
said, "I pinched Drew and said,
'How can you give them the,
,consideration and not me?'"
Now that the commission
reserved the permit allocations
March 19, Beal has a year to
break ground or he'll have to
give them up.


The county Planning
Commission meets April 9 to
take another stab at coming up
with a fair formula for mitigating
new development because, as
Trivette says, the county does
not have enough land to donate.
Even though the habitat con-
servation plan limits to 200 the
number of new houses that can
be built over a 20-year period on
Big Pine and No Name, redevel-
opment and even repaving the
roads mist be mitigated and the
bank will eventually run dry,
according to Trivette.
Beal says he's going to ask
the County Commission at its
April meeting in Key West to
pony up the land or money for
conservation land he needs for
Caya Place out of its bank.
"If they say the allocations
are good," he said, "why can't
we use the mitigation if the
county has it?".
Trivette says projects need to
be ranked and the land left in the
mitigation bank handed out
according to that ranking.

Widespread
drug probe
in Key West
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Hundreds of letters mailed to
Key West residents have alerted
them to phones being tapped
during a U.S. Drug
Enforcement Administration
investigation that started last
July and finished in late
October, according to sources
with knowledge of the investi-
gation.
Phone conversations with
suspected drug dealers were
recorded but innocent people
who called the suspects or were
called by suspects also received
letters, sources say.
According to those sources,

Spehar appeals to
senator on noise

Monroe County Com-
missioner Dixie Spehar is
appealing for help to solve the
noise issue surrounding Naval
Air Station Key West.
Friday, she sent a letter to U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson asking him to
step in and help the county "mit-
igate" the Navy's new noise
impact contours in the Lower
Keys.
The Navy has been asking the
county to adopt its 2007 Air
Installation Compatible Use
Zones map in its permitting
process. But county officials are
hesitant out of fear they would be
held financially accountable if a
developer filed a lawsuit charg-
ing that the maps limit their
rights to develop their property.
In January, Nelson held a
town-hall meeting in Key West,
and when the jet-noise issue
came up, he indicated the issue is
local, to be dealt with locally.
However, he also said he would
bring it to the attention of top-
ranking military officials.
Residents on Stock Island and
Geiger Key say the Navy's F-18
Super Hornets are too loud to
eninv their homes.


Key West City Commissioner
Barry Gibson has received a let-
ter that his phone was wire-
tapped during that probe.
The Keynoter obtained a
copy of one letter. The name of
the recipient was blacked out.
It says that on July 17; 2007,
and Aug. 14, 2007, an order was
entered by a judge with the
Third District Court of Appeal
in Miami "authorizing the inter-
ception of wire communica-
tions."
It says the authorized inter-
ception period was between
July 17, 2007, and Sept. 2,
2007, and that "during the peri-
od of authorized interception,
wire communications to or
from your telephone were inter-
cepted."
The letter was dated Feb. 8,
2008, and is titled "inventory
notification letter."
Indictments are expected in
the future, sources say, though
it's unsure who are the targets
of the investigation.
Other Key West city com-
missioners interviewed said
they hadn't received letters, and
Gibson declined comment.
According to sources, City
Commissioner Mark Rossi did
not receive a letter but rumors
are circulating that one of
Rossi's employees did.
Rossi, who owns the Ricks
and Durty Harry's Enter-
tainment Complex on Duval
Street, says he has about 150
employees and is unaware if
any of them have received let-
ters.
"I don't know what [my
employees] do in their off
time," Rossi said, adding he's
"sick and tired of people talking
[expletive]. It's not worth pub-
lic office when you're looking
out for the best interest of the
community." '
Following the DEA investi-
gation, Monroe County
Sheriff's Office court Deputy
Kenny Alonzo resigned after
the Sheriff's Office opened its
own internal investigation and
put Alonzo on paid administra-
tive leave.
According to the DEA,
Alonzo was intercepted calling
at least one suspected drug
dealer.

McPherson says 'Vandy' money found


But there are
no specific
promises made
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The sinking of the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg as an artificial reef 7
miles off Key West could
become a dead project if the Key
West City Conunission passes a
resolution Tuesday that would
begin negotiations to turn the
city's title over to banks that
have already invested in the
project.
But Mayor Morgan
McPherson has been talking to
state lawmakers in Tallahassee
this week and told the Keynoter
things are looking up.
"We have resolved some
funds for the Vandenberg,"


McPherson said. "It looks like
we picked up $1 million. We're
about halfway there."
McPherson said he's worked
with state Rep. Stan Mayfield,
chairman of the House
Environment and Natural
Resources Council, in securing
the funds from the state's Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto was unavailable Friday
afternoon.
City Commissioner Bill
Verge said $2.3 million is still
needed to sink the 520-foot for-
mer military ship.
"I don't want to say that
we're there yet," he said. "I want
to keep the pressure on."
The current cost for the proj-
ect is $8.45 million, about 40
percent more than the expected


original cost, $5.7 million.
Its being financed by the city
of Key West, Monroe County,
the county Tourist Development
Council, U.S. Maritime


'It looks like
we picked
up $1 million.
We're about
halfway
there.'
- Morgan McPherson,
Key West Mayor


Administration, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, and National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administra-


tion.
Those entities earmarked
funds for the projects but noth-
ing's been spent. The title would
be released at no liability to
the city to the local banks that
have invested in it.
"You have to start the process
and begin talks and negotiations
with banks to turn the title over,"
Verge said. "You have to look at
what's plan B and plan C."
Verge is also concerned with
the U.S. Coast Guard's demands
if the vessel is brought down to
Key West from its current loca-
tion, a shipyard in Norfolk, Va.
Hurricane season begins June 1,
and the vessel can't be towed
from Virginia after that because
"the Coast Guard is going to say
it needs to be off the sea wall
before hurricane season," Verge
said.
Organizers have planned for a
May 15 scuttling.

suspected of stabbing 63-year-old
Consuelo Carcamo at 5:30 a.m.
Monday while she waited for a

Randolph
said. "She
was giving

ECHEVARRIA from behind

stabbed her in the chest, then fled.
"We're beating the bushes try-

according to Rev. Stephen

Migrant landings up 40 percent


Interdictions
also on the rise
since last year
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

The number of Cubans inter-
cepted trying to make it to Florida
has increased almost 40 percent
in the last six months, state and
federal .officials say.
Statistics from U.S. Customs
and Border Protection and the
U.S. Coast Guard also show
notable increases in the number
of successful landings by Cuban


nationals on Florida shores.
Some experts attribute the
increases in migrant travels to a
growing disappointment among
the Cuban people, who expected
more significant changes for the
country in the wake of former
President Fidel Castro's resigna-
tion.
Statistics provided by Victor
Colon, a Border Patrol
spokesman, show that from Oct.
1, 2007, to now, the number of
Florida landings, when one or
more Cuban migrants make it to
shore, is up about 23 percent
compared to the same period a


year earlier.
The 116 landings have
brought 1,580 Cuban Nationals to
the U.S. since Oct. 1, 2007,
Colon said.
And while the number of land-
ings and the number of people
intercepted have both increased
in the last six months, the number
of individual migrants making it
to Florida from Cuba may not be
as high as a year ago.
In the 12 months from
October 2006 to October 2007,
3,914 Cubans reached Florida,
compared to the 1,580 who have
made it here since Oct. 1, 2007.
Under the U.S. wet-foot, dry-
foot policy, a law enacted in


1996, Cubans who set food on
U.S. soil are eligible to apply for
legal residency one year after
arriving. Those caught at sea are
returned to Cuba. "There is an
increase, but I don't see it as
being that dramatic."
Colon said that when former
Cuban President Fidel Castro
became sick in 2006, the number
of migrants initially decreased.
He said he doesn't view this
year's increase as a cause for con-
cern.
But officials from other agen-
cies say they are concerned.
Statistics from the Coast
Guard, the agency responsible for
apprehending migrants before
they reach U.S. soil, show signif-
icantly more Cuban migrants
being caught at sea compared to
recent years.
From Oct. 1, 2007, to March
24, 2008, the Coast Guard report-
ed interception of 1,187 Cubans.
That's almost 39 percent higher
than the 728 migrants intercepted
during the same period a year ear-
lier.
- Most of those migrants were
repatriated to Cuba. Some were
granted political asylum, else-
where.
Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd
Class Nick Ameen cited safety as
the primary concern when
migrants attempt the illegal jour-
ney.
"We do all we can to help pre-
vent the needless loss of life from
migrants attempting the danger-
ous voyage from Cuba to
America," Ameen said. "It's up to
us to keep a vigilant watch in try-
ing to keep these people from
putting themselves in harm's
way."
The increase in migrant traffic
has also affected Keys residents.
Last fall, Monroe County
Sheriff's Office detectives said
they believed. Cuban migrant
smugglers were to blame for a
rash of about a dozen boat thefts

within three months.
Almost all of the boats were
high-end, multi-engine .vessels,
and were found abandoned in
nearly perfect condition.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Officer Robert Dube said that the
migrants are usually careful to
protect their smugglers.
"If [migrants] come by go-fast
boats, they usually hide for a
while before emerging to give the
boats enough time to get out of
Dodge. That seems to be their
modus operandi," Dube said.
"Since Fidel Castro relin-
quished power to his brother,
there have been more landings,"
Dube added. "We normally get
landings every couple of weeks,
and now I would say we're get-
ting them at least once a week."

Refuge holds rabbit
meeting on Thursday

The National Key Deer
Refuge is preparing what it calls
an integrated predator manage-
ment plan for the endangered
Lower Keys marsh rabbit and
wants agency and community
stakeholders to participate.
An initial workshop is
planned for 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Thursday at the Big Pine Key
United Methodist Church, 280
Key Deer Blvd.
Last year, refuge staff con-
ducted a program to trap feral
cats that staff says target the rab-
bits as prey. Tom Taylor, assistant
director of the Florida Conflict
Resolution Consortium at
Florida State University, says
Thursday's meeting isn't specifi-
cally to address the cat issue but
he believes it will come up.
The meeting's designed to
introduce the purpose and scope
of the project, "build a shared
understanding of the issues from
different perspectives," identify
priorities and address them, and
form workgroups to specify
other next steps.
Workgroup meetings will be
held. April 24 and May 8. A final
"consensus workshop" is
planned June 19.

lewd park behavior robbery reported


In four hours, undercover
detectives from the Key West
Police Department, with the
help from the Monroe County
State Attorney's Office, arrest-
ed four men for allegedly
engaging in various lewd acts
in Little Hamaca Park on
Government Road in Key West
Friday.
The joint operation,
launched in response to numer-
ous citizen complaints, netted
arrests for lewd and lascivious
behavior, exposure of sexual
organs and, battery.
Police -spokeswoman
Christie Phillips said that dur-
ing the operation, each suspect
approached an undercover
detective in the park and, after
engaging in conversation, per-
suaded the detective to follow
him into the trails for sex.
She said the suspects gave a
variety of reasons for their
behavior, from one saying he
was looking for anonymous
sex to a suspect who said he
just couldn't help himself.
Thomas Wheaton of Key'
West was charged with battery
for allegedly unlawful touch-
ing of genitals and lewd and
lascivious behavior; Darren
Paugh and Jason Green, both
of Key West, were each
charged with exposure of sexu-
al organs; and Edward Recarey
of Stock Island was charged
with battery for unlawful
touching of the genitals.


A 49-year-old Key Largo
woman was the victim of- a
home-invasion robbery Thurs-
day afternoon, according to the
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
- Deputies say the woman
reported that at 2:45 -p.m., a
man walked into her Cabrera
Street home, pointed a hand-
gun at her and demanded
money. She said he struck her
in the head with the gun,
grabbed her and led her to the
back of the house. She man-
aged to break away from him
and ran outside yelling for
help.
The suspect fled. The victim
called her husband, who came
home. They called the
Sheriff's Office about 10 min-
utes after the .incident
occurred.
, They described the suspect
as a Hispanic man in his 20s,
about '5-foot-10 with short
black hair. He was clean
shaven, has dark eyes and was
wearing a dark T-shirt, dark
hooded sweatshirt and dark
baggy jeans.
The lead detective on the
case is Jason Madnick. Anyone
with information can call the
Sheriff's Office or Crime
Stoppers of the Florida Keys.
Callers to Crime Stoppers
whose information leads to an.
arrest will be eligible for a
cash reward. The hotline is
(800) 346-TIPS.


Commissioner Clayton Lopez
said. "The problem is, the hos-
tel was privately owned. If
people want to do something
different, it's their property."
Property owners Denise
and John Ganton want to
reconstruct the 21-unit motel
and hostel into a 17-unit hotel.
The Gantons own a home in
Michigan and behind the hos-
tel on Washington Street.
Owen Trepanier, a consult-
ant who was hired by the
Gantons, says the applicants
have shown extreme dedica-
tion to clean up that area of
South Street by purchasing the
property with the intent to
rebuild.
Key West police records
.indicate that from September
to the beginning of March, 22
people called police in regard
to incidents from the 716-718
South St. property, some for
loud music, people or fights
breaking out. One caller
described a female at the hos-
tel urinating on herself, barely
able to stand.
Trepanier said complaints
of prostitution, drug use and
local burglaries have led many


of the neighbors to support the
project when the Key West
City Commission conditional-
ly approved it June 6, 2006.
. "Might as well,"
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
"Who comes down here any-
way under 30 years old? They
can't afford it."
On March 5, the City
Commission, acting as the
Board of Adjustment, tabled a\,
proposed variance to forgo a'
30-foot height restriction by 3
'feet to accommodate handi-
cap-friendly vans in a pro-
posed parking garage.
Otherwise, the parking garage


would be below sea level.
Trepanier said the easement
would fulfill the Americans
with Disabilities Act require-
ment and adhere to the height
limitations.
Also on tap Tuesday, the
Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust is asking for
$66,339 in. special property
tax revenue for rehabilitation
projects. "We had already
voted to give them the money
last year," Lopez said.
The City Commission
meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Old
City Hall, 510 Greene St.

Report disputes claims


Investigator finds
inconsistencies
from all involved
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement's investigation
into former Key West Police
Officer Matthew Klosowski's
misconduct allegations against a
fellow officer reveals inconsis-
tencies in stories among people
interviewed.
Klosowski claims he caught
Sgt. Pablo Rodriguez on his
police video running into a bicy-
clist with his police cruiser. He
said Rodriguez instructed him to
destroy the DVD recording,
which Rodriguez refutes.
Inspector Alexandra Gaskins
of the Office of Executive
Investigations spoke with officers
and Harold Rodriguez, a bicyclist
who was mistaken for a burglary
suspect.
On May 28, Klosowski
responded to a call for backup
from Sgt. Rodriguez, who was in
pursuit of the bicyclist.
In a lawsuit Klosowski filed
against the department and city in
December, he claims Sgt.
Rodriguez drove over a curb and
hit the suspect with his car, man-
gling the bicycle and leaving the
suspect bloody.
He reported the incident to
Internal Affairs, which led to the
state investigation. The FDLE
report has been submitted to the
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office for review.
Gaskins' report, after viewing


the video in question, revealed,
"The video did not clearly identi-
fy the point of impact between
the bicycle and Sgt. Rodriguez's
patrol vehicle. The distance
between the vantage point and
actual crash was skewed by a
building, parking meter, tree as
well as distance."
The report also states Sgt.
Rodriguez didn't complete a sup-
plemental police report until June
22 and that he's never had good
communication with Klosowski,
which has led to "previous mis-
understandings."
The bicyclist claimed
Klosowski attempted to hit the
fleeing suspect head on with his
car as he drove onto the sidewalk.
Sgt. Rodriguez said he attempted
to hit him again by opening his
car door. Other officers inter-
viewed reported the same details.
In Harold Rodriguez's inter-
view, he reportedly told Gaskins
he was riding his bike to work on
Simonton Street and thought a
police van he saw was "immigra-
tion." After his run-in with
Klosowski, he claims he crashed
into the front of Sgt. Rodriguez's
car, and started running. He said
he was still under the impression
"immigration" was after him.
Klosowski reportedly found the
mistaken suspect and handcuffed
him.
The bicyclist explained his
confusion to Sgt. Rodriguez, and
the report states Sgt. Rodriguez
was "very nice" and offered him
medical attention,' which was
denied.
. His bicycle was damaged so
he threw it in a nearby dumpster


and went to work.
The report says Klosowski
claims he waited to report the
incident because he feared retali-
ation.
"Officer Klosowski did not
feel that the situation was crimi-
nal, but felt that Sgt. Rodriguez
should have gotten the bicyclist
medical attention, completed a
traffic report," and shouldn't
have told him to destroy the
video, the finding states.
His lawsuit alleges the depart-
ment retaliated against him after
he filed his internal complaint.
He states he was immediately
reassigned, denied pay and
endured verbal abuse, among
other things.
Klosowski announced his res-
ignation from the department at
the March .4 Key West City
Commission meeting.

Nate Grill lives on through foundation for youths
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com M I ,14


Nate Grill was a big kid. At
parties, he could frequently be
found playing with children, pay-
ing no attention to adults.
"He was all about the kids. He
was patient in teaching the kids
how to do things, eager to teach
them how,". Nate's former fiance
Lisi Cordova recalled.
On April 15, 2005, the long-
time Marathon resident died in an
auto accident at age 32.
Nate touched so many in a life
cut short, proven when more than
4,000 people from our small
community came to pay their
respects when he was laid to rest
at the Marathon Lutheran
Church. His family was left flab-
bergasted, as the line for Nate's
service stretched around the
block.
"You don't realize what some-
one does in the span of his life.
He made a point to put his mark
on everyone and he impacted a
lot of people," Cordova said.
But his connection with young
people was especially strong,
Cordova said, and thus it was fit-
ting they became the inspiration
for a foundation and softball tour-
nament that ensures Nate Grill
will never be forgotten.
"Some of the kids at the high
school knew him since they were
toddlers; they grew up with him
being at family gatherings. He
pretty much was looked up to as
an uncle or friend to these kids.
They felt very helpless and sad-
dened," Cordova said. "A lot of
them wanted to do something in
his honor to help them heal."
The kids approached
Marathon High School's Barbara
Allen, whose two sons. were
attending the school at the time,
about creating a scholarship in
Nate's honor. That eventually led
to the creation of the Nate Grill
Scholarship Foundation and a co-
ed softball tournament fundraiser
now entering its third year.
Each year, Nate's family
members come from as far as

organized the tournament
because of Nate's love of the
game. To date, the foundation has
given away $18,000 to Marathon
students and this year two more
deserving seniors will receive a
scholarship according to a points-
based application system.
Cordova said the tournament
is held every April so those who
knew and loved Nate can come
together and celebrate his life.
"The thing is, he loved sports
and he always had a blast out on
the field. My whole purpose is I
didn't want people dwelling on
how he left us; it was for all of us
to remember who he was,"
Cordova said. "He was a full of
life, energetic person and that's
what he was all about."
Nate was born in what
Cordova says is the very aptly
named hometown of Defiance,
Ohio. "He had that little streak of
defiance in him," she joked.
Nate came to the Keys in ele-
mentary school, left for a while to
live with his mother in the
Midwest during high school, but
was inevitably drawn back.
Cordova says he came back
because he loved Marathon, and
it obviously loved him back.
"I'm happy to see so much
good happening from something
so tragic and to see his family
come down and know so many

within each one of us and at least
once a year we can get together
and celebrate his life by raising
money to help these kids go to

Recently, as she hung a poster
advertising the tournament in a
local shop, Cordova heard a
small child ask his mother "Who
is Nate Grill?" She realized in
that moment many young people
he impacted are getting older and
moving away.
"I kind of grinned to myself,
but at the same time I got sad.

duo discovers unity as, deep and
strong as a Vulcan mind-meld.
The audience gets the other
side of the conversation you
have with your pet. I secretly
worry about people who don't
talk things over with a pet:
"Well, Fluffy, it looks like we'll
be moving to a condo. Do you
think it's a good idea? Of course,
you won't get much use of the
pool. But never mind, the point
is, I'll like it."
This play provides the
response in remarkably canine
logic. It's like having a Babel
fish in your ear translating the
yips, yowls, growls and mur-
murs of your four-legged pal.
The B-fish reference:
Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Galaxy" and, pre-
viously, without the fish part, the
Old Testament Genesis story
where God saw mankind down
here building the first city after
the big flood and got into a little
snit when they joyously erected
a huge tower celebrating their
own resources. The Old
Testament God thought it should
have been dedicatedto him,
excuse me, Him, and, bingo!, the
previously cooperative people all
spoke different languages.
However, after "Sylvia,"
you'll never listen to your pet in
the same way. You'll be sensitive
to all that sarcasm that went
unnoticed before.

The Red Barn Theatre is at

'Monologues'
The Red Barn is into nostal-
gia this month. In addition to
"Sylvia," it's reprising "The
Vagina Monologues," the 1996
feminist play by Eve Ensler the
Red Barn last produced in 2001.
Bringing the secret labia to
the lips of the public, this play
projected the fears, embarrass-
ment, joys, funny anecdotes and
dreadful war stories of women's
hidden lives into everyday con-
versation.
The series of anecdotes, origi-
nally performed single-handedly


by the author, has been translat-
ed into 45 different languages
(back to Babel fish) and per-
formed in more than 119 coun-
tries.
Typically it is now cast with
three monologists, as the Red
Barn performed it, although I've
seen productions where 20 or
more people have recited the
lines.
Ronnie Goldstein, George di
Braud and Joy Jamma engag-
ingly enact this production under
Carole MacCartee's- direction.
I didn't start early enough, so
if you see it, count the times the
word "vagina" is used and be
alert, it sneaks in sometimes -
and let me know. There's an easy
Guinness record here for Ensler.
"The Vagina Monologues"
runs Sunday, Monday and April
6 and 7. Tickets are $30.

Islamorada Community
Entertainment is bringing
another gem to the TIB
Amphitheater at Founders
Park in Islamorada tonight.
"Heima," featuring
Iceland's internationally popu-
lar four-man experimental


band, is one of the most
unconventional rockumen-
taries most people will ever
see. It is more a travelogue of
the stark and beautiful Iceland
landscape than purely a con-
cert movie.
Heima (homeland in
Icelandic) documents a series
of free concerts given by the
band throughout Iceland in
summer 2006. They take place


in such diverse venues as
small villages, an abandoned
fish processing plant, farm-
houses places bands don't
usually go.
The film will be shown at 7
p.m. There is no admission
charge. In case of rain, the
movie will be shown at the

Celebrate the Republic


Independence Days
are only a few
weeks in future
T he Conch Republic never
received the billion dollars
in foreign aid its officials
requested from the U.S. govern-
ment after its 1982 secession
from the mother country.
Nevertheless the republic, also
known as Key West and the
Florida Keys, is to salute the 26th
anniversary of the secession April
18 through April 27 in Key West.
The Conch Republic Indepen-
dence Celebration is to feature
irreverent and inviting activities
including a "drag" race between
female impersonators, a sea battle
featuring tall ships, an impromptu
sea-to-sea parade and a bed race
billed as "the most fun you can
have in bed with your clothes on."
As well as showcasing the
independent and eccentric spirit"
that characterizes the Florida
Keys, the celebration benefits a
variety of local charitable organi-
zations.
The birth of the island repub-
lic, whose motto is We Seceded


Where Others Failed, was
prompted by a 1982 U.S..Border
Patrol checkpoint set up at the
head of the Florida Keys so
agents could search cars for drugs
and illegal aliens. It virtually halt-
ed traffic on the only road into
and out of the Keys, angering res-
idents and threatening the fledg-
ling tourism industry.
Realizing that the Keys were
being treated as a foreign country,
local officials protested by stag-
ing the secession. After proclaim-
ing the Conch Republic, they
declared war on the United
States, pelted federal agents with
stale Cuban bread, surrendered
and requested $1 billion in for-
eign aid. The Border Patrol
checkpoint was removed quickly,
and the Conch Republic captured
the popular imagination.
"The Conch Republic seeks to
bring more humor, warmth and
respect to a planet we find in sore
need of all three," said Peter
Anderson, the republic's secre-
tary general. "We like to think we
express what is best about
America."
Highlights of the 2008 celebra-
tion are to include the Great
Conch Republic Drag Race, a
free-for-all sprint for female
impersonators ranging from the
fashionable to the fashion-chal-
lenged. The rowdy race, presented


by the Bourbon Street Complex,
is scheduled for April 19 in the
700 block of Duval Street, Key
West's main "drag." Participants
are expected to compete in full
makeup and gowns or stylish
sporting attire; tiaras are optional.
The event is to commence at 1
p.m. when the pits in the 700
block open for public viewing.
Beginning at 2 p.m., racers in
staggeringly high stilettos or
oversized platform sandals pro-
ceed through time trials and elim-
ination heats, attempting to avoid
crashes and broken heels to tri-
umph over their sisters in .the
final round.
* The racing action is to be
capped by a 5 p.m. tea dance in the
street for competitors and specta-
tors with any remaining energy.
Other. festival highlights
include the U.S. 1 Radio/WAVE
FM "World's Longest Parade,"
also to take place on Duval
Street. Named because it begins
at the Atlantic Ocean and pro-
ceeds to the Gulf of Mexico, the
exuberant parade is to step off
around 7 p.m. April 24. The pro-
cession typically features
impromptu floats, pedicabs, local
and visiting firefighters, musi-
cians and colorfully painted
"conch cruiser" cars and bicycles.

complete schedule of Conch
Republic events, visit.

Island Fest
is in early

W ith live music in an

sizes texture in clay works cre-
ated with objects from the sea
itself. One of her goals is to
increase awareness about coral
reef preservation.
Also exhibiting at the juried
show is Vicki Oriold
Zawadowycz from Palm Beach
County, whose collection of
paintings reflects her pictur-
esque South Florida surround-
ings. She works primarily in
gouache, a technique of paint-
ing with opaque watercolors
prepared with gum, and her


pieces often are focused on
tropical birds, fish and scenery.
Artist Victor Leong's
favorite medium is sand, and
he's willing to share his expert-
ise. The renowned South
Florida sand sculptor plans to
build an enormous beachfront
sand castle and offer sand castle
building lessons to the young
and young at heart.
Other participating artists
include Fred Link of Haines City
showing impeccably detailed
African scenes carved into natu-
ral gourds, and Bonnie Darcy of
Naples, who brings her craft to
life with stitchery on ribbon
belts, dog collars and leashes.
In fact, art lovers and other
Island Fest attendees are
encouraged to bring their dogs
to the event. A Doggie Fun
Zone is to be set up in the on-
site dog park with activities
designed to make stars out of
any four-legged friend. Photos
are to be available and two-
legged companions are invited
to bring their own cameras.
For epicurean attendees,
Sunday's schedule focuses on
food. The Taste of Islamorada
is to tantalize tummies with
award-winning dishes of succu-
lent local seafood and sweets.
Islamorada's finest restaurants
are to present their signature
dishes in a lively competition
for the titles of best entrEe, best
dessert and other coveted
awards.

Pitcher Eigner
tosses quality
start in win
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

After baffling a good Coral
Shores lineup for seven innings,
Marathon High School pitcher
Toby Eigner shrugged off his
upset win.
"It was all our defense,"
Eigner said. "It was a good team
effort on defense."
Dolphin coach Luis Leal
went a little further after
Wednesday's 8-2 Dolphin victo-
ry in Islamorada.
"This is a huge win. Toby
pitched a great game," Leal
grinned as the Dolphins picked
up their third win in their past
four games after opening
with 10 straight losses.
"We played sloppy baseball
when [Cofal Shores] came down
to our place," Leal recalled of an

error-filled effort. "But we knew
we could play with them. We felt
compelled to come out and do
well."
Eigner did not overpower the
Hurricanes; he scattered five hits
and three walks, with four strike-
outs.
What he did was coax the
Canes into a rash of pop flies -
nine putouts were arcing shots


run down by Marathon outfield-
ers or shortstop Jay Hegland. A
stiff wind coming off Florida
Bay may have helped.
Catcher Chris Garrett reeled
in two pop flies behind the plate.
I Coral Shores (7-7) started
well with a leadoff single by
LaDarius Sanders in the first,
with Sanders advancing to score
after a Ryan Biondoletti sacrifice


bunt. But that was the end of
effective Hurricane offense until
the game was effectively out of
reach.
Coral Shores starter Chris
Noble pitched well through five
innings, allowing just three hits.
But in the fifth, two Hurricane
infield errors combined with a

deficit to win
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The fifth inning continues to
be kind to the Coral Shores High
School softball team, which
defeated Keys rival Marathon in
a slugfest Thursday, 16-14, at
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School.
The Hurricanes trailed 8-3,
but scored 11 runs to take a 14-8
lead in what seemed like an end-
less fifth inning.
"The fifth inning has been


good to us recently. You're trying
to sell the kids they've seen the
pitcher a couple times," Coral
Shores coach Paul Grewe said.
"But in this case I think we saw
three different pitchers."
Grewe said the Canes had
eight hits and two walks in the
inning, including a grand slam by
sophomore leadoff batter Andrea
Cockerham. Much of the damage
came with no outs, but Coral
Shores also piled on with big
two-out hits as well.
Senior Rozina Malvacher had

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

In a 10-4 Monsignor Pace
victory over Key West in Opa-
locka Thursday night, Pace
scored in every inning and hit
three home runs.
The Conchs struck out 16
times and 15 were recorded
by starting pitcher Mark
Alfonso.
Striking out is nothing new
for the Conchs this season, and
according to coach Miguel
Menendez, it's not always"


because of the pitching.
"I think the approach is not
sound all the way through an at-
bat," he said. "We have to do a
better job of recognizing what
the pitcher is trying to do, and
also to cut down our swing with
two strikes."
Key West, which lost to Pace
for the second time this season,
fell behind early and trailed 6-0
after Rene Mateo hit a grand-
slam off Drew Rivera that just
cleared the short right-field
fence.

two-run double of her own.
Dolphins coach Andrea
Murphy said watching Coral
Shores at bat "seemed like the
longest inning all year."
"I didn't even know who I
could put in; all our pitchers strug-
gled and when pitchers are strug-
gling and defense is bad, it doesn't
help. To their credit, we gave them
pitches to hit and they hit them,"
Murphy said. "They played a good
game and kept battling back."
Grewe said he was happy with
the Canes' resilience after a tough
loss in its last outing against
Palmer Trinity School.
"One thing we've been able to
do is if we had a loss, we've been
able tb stop it at one. You want to
make sure they don't get any
longer than they need to," he said.
The Canes improved to 9-4,
while Marathon now stands at 7-6.
The game was back and forth
early, as the Canes scored two
first-inning runs and the
Dolphins answered back with
two of their own.
After a scoreless second,
Coral Shores took a 3-2 lead in
the third on a double by Michelle
Sexton. Marathon answered back
with two runs in the bottom of the
third and four in the bottom of the
fourth to take an 8-3 lead.
After the huge fifth inning for
the Canes, Dolphin freshman
Kelley Struyf tried almost single-


handedly to bring the Dolphins
back. Struyf hit a three-run home
run in the bottom of the fifth to
cut the deficit to 14-11, but Coral
Shores answered back with two
crucial insurance runs in the top
of the seventh.
Struyf hit another three-run
homer in the bottom of the sev-
enth to make it a 16-14 game, but
the Dolphins fell short.
Sexton had four hits and three
RBI for the Canes, while Shelby
Gentes had four hits and three RBI. -
Kuck was 5-for-5 with four
RBI and four runs scored, while
Struyf had a huge game going 4-
for-5 with two home runs, six
RBI and five runs scored.
Coral Shores was scheduled to
visit Carrollton School Friday,
while Marathon was scheduled to
take part in the Conch Classic in
Key West. Both results were too
late for press time.

Canes-Palmer
Coral Shores' Lady
Hurricanes stranded 10 runners
in a 7-6 loss to Palmer Trinity in
a March 20 game.
Palmer jumped out to a 6-2 lead
after three innings as the Canes
committed five errors in the game.
In what has become the trade-
mark style of the 2008 Coral
Shores squad, the Lady Canes ral-
lied for four runs in the fifth
inning to tie the game. But Palmer
brought the winning run home in
the bottom of the seventh.


Rusty Canes prep


for district lacrosse


Keynoter Staff


Coral Shores' girls lacrosse
team will head into the District 4-
A Tournament semifinals April
15 without having played a game
for nearly a month.
The last two games of the reg-
ular season including
Thursday's scheduled home
match against Stoneman Douglas
High School were cancelled.
Douglas, from Parkland in
Broward County, gave up a for-
feit because the squad could not
find enough coaches or parents to
accompany the team to Tavernier,
Coral Shores head coach Mark
Hall said.
"I would rather have lost in a
good game than to have the for-'


feit [win]. The girls really needed
a tough game. right now," Hall
said of the squad, 5-1 in District 4
and 6-5 overall.
The Lady Canes have not faced
an opponent since March 18.
Coral Shores has the top seed in
the four-team district tournament,
which will take place in Tavernier.
Both semifinal games will be
played at Coral Shores April 15,
with the Lady Hurricanes facing
the No. 4 seed in the second game.
Game times are scheduled for 5
p.m. and approximately 7:30 p.m.

Down 2-1, Coral Shores
answered with three straight pop
outs, to center, left and short.
"We played mistake-free
baseball," Leal said. "We're
playing with confidence, and
hitting a lot better."
In the top of the seventh,
Nick Bertiaux and J.P. McCabe
opened with singles off Noble.
After a walk, Coral Shores
coach Jeff Meyers went to
reliever Mike Rentz, who hit the


first batter he faced.
Hegland ripped a two-run

before being thrown out at sec-
ond. A walk and an error brought

gled in the seventh but the

Charlie Walker-Yhap and a sin-
gle by Cole Harrison. They
scored two more in the fifth when
Noah Josephson, who had sin-,
gled, and Michael Arencibia,
who had doubled, both scored on
a single by Ratcliff.
Raitcliff, who had missed three
games because of a foot injury,
was 3-for-4 in his return.
"I thought he was amazing, to
have the night he had after having
basically two weeks off, and he
practiced two days in that span,"
Menendez said of Ratcliff, the
regular second baseman who
played shortstop because senior


Raiko Alfonso was left home for
violating a team policy.
Right fielder Radier Gonzalez
was suspended for the same reason.
Despite the loss, which left the
Conchs with an 8-9 overall
record (3-5 in District 16-4A),
Menendez remained confident
his team can beat Pace (13-1, 9-
0) if they meet in the district tour-
nament at spacious Rex Weech
Field in late April.
"They hit three home runs and
two of them were routine fly balls
at a regular-sized field," he said.
"We will be prepared and we are
a much different team on our
home field."
If the two teams do play again,
it likely will be in a charged


atmosphere.
Thursday night, fights almost
broke out after Key West catcher
Joey Gandolfo was run over in a
play at the plate and after Rivera
threw a pitch behind the back of
Ozzie Guillen, the son of the
Chicago White Sox manager.
The Conchs will play a home
game at 8 tonight against. Lake
Grantley, then move on to next
week's Gary Carter Tournament
in Boca Raton.

Gulliver swats Conchs


Only success
is 2 victories
in doubles
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Before the Key West High
School tennis team lost to
defending state champion
Gulliver Prep at Coral Shores
Tuesday the boys, 5-2, and
the girls, 7-0 coach Paul
Findlay had these words for his
players:
"You're going up against the
best in the state. There's
absolutely no pressure on you,
but don't go out there and not
play. You can't have a defeatist
attitude."
The Conch boys, who
dropped to 8-3 on the season,
had no success in singles.


No. 1 Nick Lark lost, 8-0, to
Chris Jackman, a 2A state
champion a year ago; No. 2
Andre Wallace lost, 8-1, to
Raleigh Smith, who also went
to the state tournament last sea-
son; Nick Scammacca lost, 8-
1; Justin Tomita lost, 8-0; and
George Clark went down, 8-2.
But in doubles, the Conchs
won twice Lark and
Scammacca, 8-2, and Tomita
and Clark, 8-5.
"Gulliver was using its
alternate players, but they
weren't slouches," Findlay
said. "Nick and Nick pretty
much trounced them, and
Justin and George played real-
ly well."
For the girls, who fell to 4-
6, Gabby Scammacca, at No. 1,
lost, 8-2, "but played very
well," Findlay said. Sarah


Fitzsimmons and Rae Lark
were the only other girls who
were able to win games.
"Their No. 3 girl was
injured and had to serve under-
handed, but she still won,"
Findlay said.
Afterward, Findlay told his
players they had done as good
a job as they could and to not
be disheartened.
He also said: "If you're
impressed by Gulliver, remem-
ber they don't have a Spring
Break or a Christmas break
from tennis, and they don't
take off in the summer. It's a
year-round job for those kids."
Next for Key West, after
Spring Break, is the district
tournament April 10 in Miami.
"You'd better play on the
break," Findlay advised the
team Tuesday, though he
doubted that any of the players
would.

Powerboats return


to Marathon


Grand Prix
culminates with
May 18 race
The uniqueness and excite-
ment of navigating under the
old and new Seven Mile
bridges are prime draws for
both powerboat racers and
spectators at the Marathon
Super Boat Grand Prix, set to
begin at 1 p.m. May 18.
The course passes beneath
the old Seven Mile Bridge and
the contemporary Seven Mile
Bridge.
Running roughly nine miles
per lap, the course starts in
Florida Bay and proceeds
westward to the first check-
point. Racers make a 90-
degree left turn to head to the
Atlantic Ocean, passing
between the new and old
Seven Mile.bridges' concrete
foundations. Two more hard
left turns point racers back to
the bay side, again speeding
through the narrow pass
between the bridges' concrete
foundations.


A right turn in the bay takes
racers across the finish line to
a hairpin left turn that com-
pletes each lap.
The larger boats are expect-
ed to navigate nine laps for a
total course length of about 80
miles.
Fans can view boats and
meet teams May 16 and 17
when the dry pits open to the
public at the Marathon events
field, between 98th and 99th
streets.
Spectators can view race
action free from Sunset Park
at mile marker 47 on the east
end of the Seven Mile Bridge.
"Marathon is unique as it is
the only venue on the offshore
racing circuit where racers
must navigate under bridges,"
said Randy Mearns, the
event's local chairman. "On
their return back into Florida
Bay, they pass very close to
spectators who get a great
show of the challenges that
drivers face."
