Around 11 a.m. Friday,
Stephanie Dee finally saw the
Islamorada "Dream Home"
that left her nearly speechless
on national television.


The physician's assistant
from Solon, Iowa, was accom-
panied by hlisband Tommy
when she arrived at the home
for the official presentation of
grand prize in the HGTV's
Dream Home giveaway.

runoff election
is on Tuesday-
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

According to each of the two
candidates competing in
Tuesday's runoff election for a
seat on the' Islamorada Village
Council, voters are choosing
between a top-down, business-
minded reformer, and an incum-
bent who mixes business sense
and the wants he hears from the
community.
Mayor Dave Boemer and his
challenger, retired Wall Street
executive Jim. Rhyne, traded
barbs and spelled out their plat-


forms at an Islamorada Chamber
of Commerce-sponsored debate
Monday at Holiday Isle Marina.
They disagreed on key issues
like forcing waterfront business
owners to preserve marina slips
for the public and charter boats,
and whether Islamorada should
allow big-box retail stores to
open in village limits.
Boemer said it's the village's
responsibility to ensure marina
space is available to save the
area's struggling charter boat
fleet.
"What is the sportfishing cap-
ital of the world without sport-
fishing boat-fleet?" Boemer said.
Rhyne said what a business

The learning curve is big for
the county's chosen new admin-
istrator, but Roman Gastesi Jr.
sounds like he's got much of that
curve behind him.
Wednesday, the County
Commission chose him to
replace the fired Tom Willi and


contract negotiations are about
to start. But he talked Thursday
as if he already has a hands-on
knowledge of the issues faced by
Monroe County.
Acting County Administrator
"Debbie Frederick has been
doing a wonderful job filling me
in," Gastesi said. "I've been rub-
bing my head against hers a lot.
And I've been getting with the
division directors and doing the
same thing."

cheered their arrival as an HGTV
crew taped the event.
Some moments during the
presentation ceremony were
reshot due to muffed introduc-
tions or tricky lighting.
The home, adjacent to
Founders Park, commands an
open view of Florida Bay.
Eventually, other homes on the
Gimpy Gulch property may be
constructed as part of The Shore
subdivision complex.
When Dee was surprised in
Iowa by an HGTV crew telling
her that her entry was plucked
from more than 40 million, "I
was just shocked," she said
Friday.
Her stunned reaction during
the live winning announcement
was not taken well by some in the
viewing audience, who posted on
Internet sites that she seemed
"ungrateful" or worse.
But she said she is most grate-
ful. "I put in quite a few entries."
Dee, a physician's assistant
and mother of two small girls,
told reporters in Iowa she may
have to sell the home because of

taxes. The home is described as
worth $2.2 million in HGTV
publicity.
""We have no definite plans
right now," Dee said after accept-
ing the keys to the front door. "I
have to go see the inside first. We
may have to stay a while."
The presentation visit was her
first to the Florida Keys. "It's
very beautiful, with such beauti-
ful weather," Dee said. "On my
birthday last week, we had a
snowstorm."
The Dee family also received
a GMC Yukon hybrid, with a list


price of more than $50,000. "This
will replace the minivan," Dee
said before posing in the SUV.
Winners of the HGTV Dream
Home sweepstakes often sell the
house, using the money to pay
gift taxes.
The Monroe County Property
Appraiser's Office is well aware
of the impressive manse built in
Islamorada, assistant appraiser
Karl Borglum said.
An assessment for tax purpos-
es will take place, but it will con-
sider the stated $2.2 million
value.
"There can be a lot of hype
about, what some things are
worth," Borglum said,,"especial-
ly considering current market
conditions."
But for informational purpos-
es, Borglum calculated that all
local taxes for an Islamorada
property appraised at $2 million
would be $15,800 annually
($15,500 with Homestead
Exemption).

tor Monica Pederson was on

with house architect Jack

Celebrating our past


Village vote


is Tuesday


Keynoter Staff


Islamorada voters head to the
polls Tuesday to elect a-Village
Council member in Seat 3.
Incumbent Mayor David
Boemer faces Jim Rhyne. They're
in the runoff because they received
the most votes among three candi-
dates in the March 11 general elec-
tion but none received more than'
50 percent of ballots cast.
As of Friday, 400 voters had
cast absentee ballots and another
101 voted early at the Plantation
Key Government Center. There
are 5,000 registered voters in the
village, according to the Monroe
County Supervisor of Elections
Office.
Tuesday, polls are open 7 a.m.


to 7 p.m. Photo ID is needed.
Polling sites are the government
center, mile marker 88.8;
Islamorada library at mile marker
81.7; and Immanuel Lutheran
Church, 108 Ocean Drive,
Plantation Key.
Whoever wins will be seated
on the council Thursday.
In the general election, incum-
bent 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
Councilwoman Cathi Hill was
automatically re-elected when no
one filed to run against her.

"I'm not one who's going to
tell property owners what they
can and cannot do with their
property," Rhyne said.
Both candidates said the so-
called formula retail ordinance,
which prohibits more businesses
like McDonald's and Wal-Mart
from opening in Islamorada,
needs a closer look.
Boerner said he still agrees
with the intent of the ordinance,
but said maybe some of these
businesses should be allowed in
if they conform with specific aes-
thetic standards. -
Rhyne said the ordinance has
done more harm than good. He
said it has resulted in too many
empty storefronts because chain
retail stores are sometimes the

Islamorada's expensive real
estate prices.
"Empty buildings and empty
storefronts are not the character
we want;" he said.
Boerner said speculative
developers and lack of adequate
parking are more to blame for
empty storefronts.
"Gusto's is empty because it
has no parking. Speculative
developers jacked up prices and
then went belly up," Boerner
said.
Rhyne disagreed, "I don't
believe it's all because of ppecu-
lative greed at this point," he
said.
Rhyne and Boerner also differ
on staffing the village govern-
ment. Boerner said he initially
thought the village's staff of 85
was too much when he first came
into office, but realized they were
necessary when he understood
their functions.
Rhyne said cutting staff may
be necessary. "I'm in favor of
dong whatever it takes to get the
job done."
Both_ candidates said
Islamorada's downtown corridor
should be made more appealing
to make the. village more of a
tourist destination.
"We- need to get it to where
you don't drive through here on
your way to Key West, you drive
to here," Boerner said.

'Vandenberg'


plans in disarray


Big shortfall
puts scuttling
into question
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The USS Hoyt Vandenberg is
making more waves without
moving an inch.
While work to prepare the
ship for its final mission as an
artificial reef off Key West is pro-
ceeding, cost concerns have near-
ly sunk the project.
The project is 40 percent over
2006 cost estimates and time is
running out to secure the added
money, according to a project
budget.
The new estimate of $8.45
million is 3.9 times more than the
original estimate calculated in
2001, according to Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council records. Jeff Dey, whose
company, Resource Control
Corp., is part of the team scut-
tling the ship, filed that estimate
- $2.18 million.
As the deadlines loom, BB&T
Bank is considering pulling loans
for the project, Key West City
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
He said banks should see
through their commitment, but
that BB&T has reason to raise
questions.
The bank and city became
aware of millions of dollars in
additional costs when the project
manager, Reef Makers, used up
bank allocations.
Verge described mounting
costs as legitimate, and said they
stem from various environmental
concerns and unforeseeable vari-
ables such as the steep rise in gas
prices the past few years. But, he
added, Reef Makers should have
warned the various governmental
agencies involved in the scuttling
for the 520-foot former military
ship of the rising expenses.
Most of the unforeseen costs
are in the removal and disposal of
PCB-laced wiring, said Joe
Weatherby, marketing director
for Reef Makers. PCB is a toxic
pollutant banned in 1979.
John McMahon, manager of
the Key West branch of BB&T,
said it is against company policy
to comment on its relationship


with clients.
Any pulled funding would add
to the project's current $2.4 mil-
lion shortfall. About $1 million of
that is working its way through a
legislative committee. Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson said
he thinks the state's Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development can fund the rest.
"This is going to be one of the
most different summers ever," he
said.
Asked if the TDC should pay
more than the $1 million it
already committed, he said: "I'd
love to see the TDC come out
with something, but that would
have to be an action that board
would have to address.
"At this point, the executive
director, Harold Wheeler, has
taken a pretty staunch position
against extra monies being used.
He hasn't been helpful up into
this point, and I don't expect him
to be helpful about it in the
future," he said.
Placing explosives on the ship
to sink it will take a month, Verge
said. To make the U.S. Coast
Guard deadline of June 1, brought
about by the beginning of hurri-
cane season, the ship must be in
place by the end .of April.
If the ship is sunk, benefits to
the Keys are disputed.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
contends the ship will increase
diving 10 percent in the county,
according to a report'authored by
Bob Leeworthy, chief economist
for that agency. Added visitors
will spend an extra $7.5 million
each year since divers spend on
lodging and other tourism busi-
nesses, the report says.
Wheeler said he thinks the
impact could hurt the Upper
Keys, where diving is a big
attraction, or dissipate quickly.
"I believe if the ship goes
down that it will have a very pos-
itive effect for at least a short
period of time," he said. The
question is after a about a year
and a half or two years, what eco-
nomic impact is it going to have
in Key West?"
Said Weatherby, "This is the
right thing for our economy and
our environment, but I recognize
that people feel differently."

Shaking money tree

an ill-timed bailout

When is enough enough?
Very, very soon, taxpayers in Key West will get the answer to
that question if Mayor Morgan McPherson's hunt for money to
help sink the USS Hoyt Vandenberg runs short.
At last count, the city's effort to cover the ever-escalating
costs is about $1.4 million shy. The mayor, returning from
Tallahassee and pressing the flesh, believes he's got commit-
ments from the state's Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development that will close the gap.
But the larger question remains: Is sinking the 520-foot for-
mer military ship as an artificial reef off Key West at a cost of
$8.45 million the best use of scarce public dollars at a time of
severe budget cuts for essential services?
Some will argue that debate was fought and lost long ago.
In fact, when private sponsors of the project first approached
city business and civic leaders, the cost was estimated at a frac-
tion of today's bloated price.
Bank loans secured to pay for preparation of the surplused
Navy ship have already been depleted, which came as a shock
to city officials when they recently learned about the shortfall.
Even Commissioner Bill Verge, among the staunchest sup-
porters of the Vandenberg project, began to look for an exit
strategy.
The city ordinance he had prepared for this week's commis-
sion meeting would have sent the ship to a scrap yard if addi-
tional funding can't be found in time.
Some think that was a ploy to shake the money tree of pub-
lic and private backers. Well, we'll wait and see if it worked.
And if it doesn't, the accounting for good money thrown after
bad will hang around like a three-day-old stink, one that voters
aren't likely to forget any time soon.

PACE girls get helping hand

On "Keynoter TV News" this week, Key West Bureau Chief
Alyson Crean hosted Diana Reagan, director of the Keys
Center for Girls (formerly PACE), along with student Myrna
Rojas and volunteer Jules Million.
It was, heartening to see the local community rally to rescue
this alternative education program from the chopping block
ordered at the state level.
Monroe County School District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo and. Florida Keys Community College President .Jill-
Landesberg-Boyle both deserve kudos for jumping in to assist.
The United Way of Monroe County's board voted to increase
funding to the Keys Center, and more help from others will also
be needed. But this is a good start.

Fish & Wildlife can learn from NOAA


EDITOR:
Kudos to the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.
My small, native marine salvage company,
Coffin Marine Services, was chosen by this
agency over some much larger otlt-of-state com-
petitors to remove the casino vessel Lady Luck.
The dollars generated by this successful project
will resonate and recycle within our community
many times before leaving.
NOAA has consistently- been a good neighbor
to the Keys. Through its citizen .advisory boards,
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary
Superintendent David Score keeps his finger on
the pulse of the Keys. The policies and rules
handed down to Monroe County citizens have
been consistently vetted and justified before
being installed. NOAA has found a management
paradigm that works in Monroe County.
Compare this to the management style of the
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, particularly on Big
Pine Key. This agency recently hired an
Anchorage, Alaska, company to do major work
within its refuge. It hired contractors from outside
Monroe County to do things like trap cats at
$11,000 per animal. When there is an issue like
predator management to be vetted, they use the
tried and true workshop forum whereby the peo-


pie in attendance are broken up into small groups
that can be easily dominated, producing the
desired forgone "science- based" conclusion.
What NOAA gets and Fish & Wildlife appar-
ently doesn't get is that we live on an island. We
are a small, isolated, interdependent population.
We are teetering on the edge of economic hardship.
Be a part of our economic community. Spend
a little money inside the county. If Fish &
Wildlife has a quarter million dollars to spend
trapping cats and we have a struggling nonprofit
animal control agency, then duh, talk to us. We
live inside the refuge. Don't cram things down
our throat. NOAA doesn't.
Take a little time to listen to our concerns.
Don't "manage" our anger and frustration. Listen
to it. Deal with it. Validate it. That is what
NOAA does.
The outcome may be the same. Fish &
Wildlife will ultimately have its way. But bend a
little during the process. Do something to make
your agency a part of the local community. Care
a little more about people.
The population of Big Pine Key feels "man-
aged." I don't think it has to be this way.

Big Pine Key


Save money by getting to root of the problem


EDITOR:
The Florida Department of Corrections has
been asked to cut $213 million off its expendi-
tures, and $37 million of that will be taken off cor-
rectional substance-abuse programs as a "solution"
to the budget crisis. When you look at what's
draining away the limited revenues our state has
this year, prison construction is on top of the list.
The governor's office recognizes the significant
impact substance abuse and mental-health treat-
ment programs can play in reducing the staggering
cost of prison construction and still maintain pub-
lic safety. Programs throughout Florida, like our

Locals help with Sudan
EDITOR:
It is wonderful to be part of the caring
Marathon community.
Six members of St. Columba Episcopal
Church are preparing to leave for a mission to
the southern Sudan April 14. As part of the
preparation for the trip, the church held a
spaghetti dinner, silent auction and raffle to raise
funds for a school in the Diocese of Malakal and
would like to thank the Village Cafe; Iona
Gallery artists Ann Lynch, Sandy Mezinis, Bim.
Crane-Baker, Nancy Webb and Dorcas Gill; the
Pampered Chef; Kathy McCoy; and the Dolphin
Research Center for their generous donations to
our event. Through their gifts and the proceeds,
we were able to raise $2,500 to help with the
building supplies for the school.
Rev. Debra Andrew-Maconaughey

Marathon


Recovery Program, are part of the solution.
The state's own research indicates that over
the next five years, Florida will need to build 17
new prisons at a cost of $1.8 billion. Investing in
community-based substance treatment, as the
governor recommended, will reduce that number
to 11 and avoid having to spend $800 million in
prison construction.
The Guidance Clinic of the Middle Keys has
served our county and state well by providing
quality and cost-effective service and needs our
support to continue its mission. Repairing human
lives while avoiding increased costs to construct
prisons is public policy we can all support.

Fishermen's steps in for the rescue


EDITOR:
While recently vacationing in
the Keys, my wife and I were driv-
ing into Marathon. As we arrived, I
was hit with nausea, fever, chills
and the most acute abdominal pains
I had ever experienced. Luckily we
were close to Fishermen's Hospital.
I was taken to the emergency
room, where I was admitted.
Hospital staff immediately began a
medical evaluation. Dr. Stephen
Harkness was called in and ordered
further testing. Dr. Harkness got a
surgical team together and the fol-
lowing day, successfully removed


my highly infected and ruptured
appendix.
I have had several hospital and
doctor experiences in my 73 years,
but none better than the care and
competence of Dr. Harkness and
the entire staff of Fishermen's
Hospital. We are deeply indebted
for their care, compassion, personal
kindness and assistance. The people
of Marathon should be very proud
of your hospital, excellent physi-
cians and staff.

PACE girls aren't left behind


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Keys Center -
A Place for Girls (new home for the
displaced PACE Center for Girls),
I'd like to recognize the tremendous
outpouring of support from the local
community that we've received dur-
ing this time.
For those who may have missed
this fast-paced story, the state office
of PACE, in response to budget cuts
at the state level, decided to shutter
the center that serves at-risk girls in
Key West and close the outreach
centers in Marathon and the Upper
Keys, effectively putting an end to
all we've accomplished here over
the years.
What I want you to know is that
local officials and our state repre-
sentative, Ron Saunders, as well as
community leaders and just plain
citizens, were not going to give up
on our girls.
The PACE board, Monroe


County School District
Superintendent Randy Acevedo,
Florida Keys Community College
President Jill Landesberg-Boyle,
Carol Eisenman and Brittany
Snyder have enabled the program to
continue to serve the young ladies
of Monroe County.
A last-minute fundraiser at the
Southernmost House was extremely
well attended by community mem-
bers from Key Largo to Key West.
We could not have been able to pull
it off without the help-[many volun-
teers]. This event raised more than
$5,000 to help fund our efforts to
ensure the girls continue to work
toward their goal of graduating with
their classmates.
For all who have provided sup-
port and encouragement while
we've worked on this project, thank
you from the bottom of.my heart.

Iguanas can be controlled humanely


EDITOR:
Although far from being a very
newsworthy subject, the iguanas
are starting to take over and have
been doing so for the past several
years.
I can remember in the '70s
when an occasional escaped pet
might make an appearance and
maybe even last a few years, but
nothing like the situation that we
have today. The relatively warm
winter seasons in the recent past
and perhaps more than a few
escaped pets enabled eggs that
were laid to hatch, and the results
are obvious all over the Keys and
Miami.
Expensive landscaping seems to
be their favorite food, particularly
hibiscus, but they will eat most
anything from a long list of tropi-
cal plants and grasses. Paint guns,
pellet guns and rifles, sling shots,


rocks, shovels, etc., are coming
more and more into play as home-
owners attempt to protect their
property from these always -hun-
gry miniature dinosaurs.
There is no real chance of com-
pletely removing these ancient
creatures from the Keys but they
can be relocated and it can be done
humanely. I think these reptiles
should be left alone but understand
those with a different perspective
and would like to offer some assis-
tance.
Removing the larger breeding
animals will drastically reduce the
populations in specific areas and
make an iguana-free back or front
yard much easier to maintain, as
the young of this species are much
easier to catch and will not have a
chance to multiply.

Prosecutors: We had the wrong guy


Alleged bank

Charges were dropped this

more than three months on
charges of robbing the

in last August.

"We can only presume they
now believe Ken's alibi, that he
was in Puerto Rico at the time
of the robbery," Amoroso said.
"'More importantly, they took a
good look at the video evi-
dence [of the robbery] and
determined that Mr. Franciose
is the wrong guy."

for the Monroe County State

crime.... The day we got infor-

wrong guy, our office acted as
quickly as possible to remedy
the situation."
Colleen. Dunne, a co-
defense counsel, said investi-
gators based their arrest on a
faulty identification from a
lineup using driver's license
photos. -
"We had evidence he was in
Puerto Rico at the time of the
robbery," Dunne said. "He was
served with legal papers [from
an unrelated civil case] there."
The defense attorneys also
called attention to a distin-
guishing characteristic: One of
Franciose's arms is 12 inches
shorter than the other.
. No witnesses mentioned
that condition in a description
of the robber, and it is not
apparent in the photos from the
video surveillance, Amoroso
said.
"It is a very noticeable
impairment," Dunne said.
"Finally, someone took us seri-
ously."

Witnesses then picked
Franciose from the license-

worked in the restaurant busi-
ness in the Lower Keys. When
arrested, he listed an assort-
ment of addresses, including
ones in Key West, Port
Charlotte and Pennsylvania.
"The suspect in the [rob-

Amoroso said. "He's insisted

Because Franciose did not
have $25,000 to pay a bonds-
man to post his $250,000 bond
on the robbery charges, he
remained in custody.
"We asked for a reasonable
bond given all the alibi evi-
dence. He wasn't going any-
where," she said. "Instead, they
held him in custody all this
time."
When released, Franciose
was "wearing prison clothes
and flip-flops because his lug-
gage disappeared on the way
from Puerto Rico," Amoroso
said. "I kid you not."
He added, "We've been
cooperating, trying to find out

Holderman, 27, a Homestead
native and single mother of
two, was asleep in the back seat
of a co-worker's car when the
vehicle was stolen at gunpoint
at the Gateway Shell gas station
in Florida City. She had worked
at Ocean Reef for about a year.
When carjacker Willie Cade
saw that a Florida City police-
man witnessed the crime, Cade
drove the 2007 Toyota south on
U.S. 1 toward the Keys.
Water (originally identified
as Waters in initial reports),
Johnson and Bell were in a
stolen car that dropped Cade off
at the gas station.
According to police, Cade
reached speeds of more than
100 mph during the chase. At a
construction site near mile
marker 114, the Toyota went
out of control and crashed head-
on into a northbound truck.
Both vehicles burst into flames.
The truck driver escaped, but
Holderman and Cade died.
The trials could be delayed if
additional motions were filed
before the May 5 scheduled
court date, which often occurs
in major cases.
A benefit was held in
Homestead last week to raise
money for a trust fund for
Holderman's two daughters,
ages 10 and 8.

Transfer rights sell for $65,000 each


Planner sees
need to create
a TBR pool
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Despite not being able to
use them yet, transferable
building rights, or TBRs, are
being sold in the city of
Marathon.
Real estate agent Carolyn
Lyne recently sold four of five
possible TBRs from a lot at
6600 Overseas Highway. The
TBRs were originally listed at
$200,000, but sold for $65,000
each after more than 200 days
on the market.
"The TBR ordinance is in
place; what's necessary is the
mechanisms to make it work.
We need to create an ordi-
nance that establishes a TBR
pool, much like" the building
permit allocation system, act-
ing Planning Director George
Garrett said.
BPAS, as the system is
.known, recently replaced the'
rate-of -growth ordinance, or
ROGO, a program the city car-
ried over from Monroe County
after incorporating in 1999. It
ranks applicants and doles out
a set number of market-rate
and affordable allocations'
each year based upon hurri-
cane evacuation times.

"a procedure for the. off-site
redevelopment of existing
transient units, residential
dwelling units and commercial
floor areas."
The ordinance defines a
building right as a "dwelling
unit, transient unit, or com-
mercial floor area that was in
lawful existence ... as of the
date of this ordinance."
Garrett said within six
weeks, an ordinance to create
the TBR pool would appear
before the council.
"This is theoretically a way
of speeding up how develop-
ment can occur," he said. "It's
an existing allocation in the
sense that it's been there. The
[buyer] got them and didn't
have to wait in the allocation
process," he said.
But owning a TBR doesn't
mean one can break ground as
soon as the city creates the
pool. Actual building permits
must still be obtained.
The lack of an ordinance
allowing TBRs to be used isn't
stopping them from being,
bought and sold. There are
more than 25 TBRs listed for
sale in the Keys' Multiple
Listing Service.
"I've sold about 15 of them,
so these are not the first ones


Briefs


Architect files
for McCoy's seat

Key West architect Carlos 0.
Rojas, a Democrat, has thrown
his hat into the ring for the
District 3 County Commission
seat now held by Republican
incumbent Sonny McCoy.
"I do not think the incumbent
has done a good job," Rojas said
late Friday. "I really want him
replaced. I want to bring integrity
and honesty to the seat, and have
a commissioner that follows the
Sunshine Law and respects not
just the letter of it but the spirit of
the law."
McCoy has been challenged
numerous times for talking with
fellow commissioners about sub-
jects they may later vdte on,


which is against the law.
Rojas says he has a clearly-
thought-out platform that
includes dealing with sewers,
preservation of the working
waterfront and property taxes.
But first, he said, he's seeking
support in the form of signatures
cards so he can qualify for the
election.
McCoy has not yet voiced his
intent. He's served two terms.
Sloan Bashinsky has filed to
run for the seat. He has no party
affiliation and has run for County
Commission before, as well as
Key West mayor.
Candidate qualifying for all
but the judicial seats runs from
June 16 through June 20. The pri-
mary is scheduled for Aug. 26
and the general election is Nov. 4.


to sell," Lyne said. "There's a
lot of them listed."
In June last year, a trustee
of two trusts that owns 20
building rights in Marathon


sent a letter to those waiting in
ROGO offering to sell them on
a first come, first served basis.
The asking price then was
$225,000 per TBR, with a


non-refundable $25,000
deposit.
The buyer must also pay
application fees associated
with the transfer.

McCoy: No appeal of DCA ruling


State rejects
waterfront
law again
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Monroe _County Mayor
Sonny McCoy demurred from
adding a last-minute item to the
County Commission's meeting
agenda Wednesday but made it
clear the county won't challenge
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs' rejection of
the county's proposed law to
protect traditional uses of the
waterfront.
McCoy, with County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton, had
drafted a resolution stating the
commission's "intent to decline
an administrative hearing." But
he withdrew the item after some
members of the audience became
concerned about the last-minute
nature of the resolution.
The commission had con-
vened at the Harvey Government
Center in Key West to select a
new county administrator.
Monday, DCA issued its


opinion, finding the county's
proposed working-waterfront
ordinance not in compliance
with the county's own compre-
hensive plan. The ordinance, two
years in the making, was origi-
nally crafted to preserve the
commercial fishing industry and
ensure public access to the
waterfront.
DCA issued a series of
objections to the ordinance
when it was first submitted for
state approval in December.
County staff addressed the con-
cerns, but the County
Commission added several con-
troversial amendments to it in
February that were drafted by
attorneys Jerry Coleman and
David Paul Horan, who repre-
sent landowners of Stock Island
waterfront parcels.
DCA found much of the
ordinance has vague language
and that many aspects lacked
significant data and analysis.
With the county's stance,
Horan says his clients will
move forward and seek a devel-
opment agreement for the Stock
Island waterfront.


New Stock Island Properties
is a group of former commercial
fishermen who want to see the
deep-water port enhanced and
the commercial fishing industry
retained, says one of the part-
ners, Charlie Renier. Plans.for
the development include docks,
retail space and a hotel, all con-
nected by a boardwalk.


Inclusion of a hotel and resi-
dential units were part of what
DCA found not compliant with
county policy. Construction of
public lodging facilities and
residential units on land zoned
as marine industrial is inconsis-
tent with county policy, accord-
ing to DCA.


Coast Guard


wants new system


Rescue shows
more local
alert needed
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Marathon resident Donna
Allan was helplessly drifting
further from her motorboat,
unable to oppose the strength
of the sea on a recent Friday
afternoon.
Allan had jumped in the


water to free a propeller -tan-
gled in the anchor line but
before she knew it, she was a
dangerous 100 yards from the-
boat, a witness arid the U.S.
Coast Guard said. All her hus-
band, Michael, could do was
watch, as his medical condition
prohibits him from swimming.
But good Samaritan and
boater Bob Papale intercepted
their signal for help about 1
p.m., on March 28. He
approached the boat and found
Donna Allen without a life-
jacket, exhausted and fright-
ened.
"She misjudged the strength
of the current," said Papale,
who comes down to Marathon
from Cape May, N.J., four or
five times a year.
Papale said he's had to
come to the rescue in a couple
of similar instances in the 30
years he's been boating.
The Coast Guard in Miami
received the signal first, with.
its advanced Rescue 21 sys-
tem.
"Miami has a new system,"
Coast Guard Sector Key West
spokesman Matthew Meinhold
said. "It lets them hear a very
broad area. Coast Guard Sector
Miami heard the call at first
and then relayed it to us."
That system, Meinhold said,
should be installed at Keys sta-
tions before long.
"We are getting it," he said.
"It's in the implementation
process."
According to Meinhold,
there have been 300 Coast
Guard search and rescue cases
in the Keys since the start of
the fiscal year Oct. 1. There
have been about 150 since
Jan. 1.

Police in holding pattern, optimistic


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


In the wake of Key West
Police Chief Bill Mauldin's res-
ignation Tuesday following alle-
gations of sexual harassment,
officers at the city Police
Department are enduring an
ever-piling workload and ques-
tions about departmental
changes lingering.
This week alone, the depart-
ment had to investigate five
deaths, including a homeless
man and someone who died of a
drug overdose.
But according to some offi-
cers, morale is high and person-
nel, despite being in a holding
pattern, are optimistic.
The department has had diffi-
culty maintaining a long-lasting
leader, with six chiefs vacating
the position in 21 years an
average of three and a half years
between each chief.


While the city struggles to
maintain a chief, Monroe
County Sheriff Rick Roth has
worked 18 years in his position
and 43 years with the Sheriff's
Office. He's retiring in
November.
Since Mauldin was promoted
from the department's accredita-
tion manager to chief in 2005,
the department's lost 32 of its
officers 21 resignations,
seven retirements, three firings
and officer John Piskator, who
died during a training exercise.
A recent city investigation
into allegations that Mauldin
sexually harassed city spokes-
woman Christie Phillips four or
five times in 2006 was complet-
ed the same day he resigned.
The report said the alleged
behavior ceased after Phillips
told Mauldin directly that his
actions constituted sexual


harassment.
Police Capt. Donie Lee, 36,
is filling in as acting chief. He
wants the job permanently, but
it's unknown what route the city
will take as far as advertising
and filling the position.
Lee, a Conch, graduated last
year from a 10-week command
development course with the
Southern Police Institute.
"I've held every rank, in the
Police Department," Lee said. "I
was a sergeant and I was in the
detective division, commanded
that for five years."
City Manager Jim Scholl said
he needs to "sit down and talk
with the Human Resources
director. I don't have a tremen-
dous sense in urgency. I have
confidence in Donie Lee's abili-
ty to handle the department in
the interim."
-City staff and officers in the
department said Mauldin's res-
ignation appeared to be more a


culmination of many issues
rather than alleged incidents that
occurred nearly two years ago.
The harassment allegations have
been described as the final
straw, following lawsuits filed
against the department and
internal and state probes into its
operations.
The harassment investigative
report shows that Mauldin
denies the claims and that
Phillips was "friendly" with
Mauldin and his wife, Terri, and
house sat 'for them after the
alleged harassment.
Mauldin hasn't returned
numerous calls for comment
this week.
Phillips didn't lodge or file a
complaint, but did confide in
someone about what she
described as inappropriate


behavior. That conversation
became public Tuesday, along
with a great deal of media atten-
tion Phillips didn't want.
Mauldin's attorney, Jerome
Ballarotto, sent a letter from his
Trenton, N.J., office to City
Attorney Shawn Smith. The let-
ter cites a portion of Mauldin's
contract that requires a "good-
faith effort in every public state-
ment and private conversation
to protect the good name and
reputation of the other party."
Mauldin, 55, has 25 years in
law enforcement and is retired
from the Air Force Office of
Special Investigations.
He'll receive whatever he's
invested in his retirement fund,
along with accrued sick and
leave time.

Attorney Michael Barnes said
two of his clients will continue to
push forward with their lawsuits
against the Key West Police
Department and former Police
Chief Bill Mauldin to "teach him
a lesson" and salvage his clients'
reputations.
Suspended officer Tom Neary
and recently resigned officer
Matthew Klosowski have pend-
ing complaints against Mauldin
and the department alleging
unfair treatment and corruption.
Klosowski's suit claims retali-
ation for blowing the whistle on
Sgt. Pablo Rodriguez when he

allegedly asked Klosowski to dis-
pose of a video of Rodriguez run-
ning into a burglary suspect.
Rodriguez denies the claim,
and a Florida Department of Law
Enforcement report says a build-
ing obstructs the video from
Klosowski's police camera.
Officers interviewed in that
investigation proclaimed
Rodriguez innocent.
Klosowski said the FDLE
investigator didn't interview four
or five officers who were present
at the time of the incident.
Neary, who's been suspended
since Oct. 26, has been suspected
of telling his co-workers he is a
secret FBI agent sent to Key West
to clean up corruption in the
department.
After he was questioned about
those claims, he was suspected of
owning a stolen gun, which was-
n't true.
An FBI investigation's find-
ings revealed claims Neary made
against the Police Department
were unsubstantiated and that his,
claim of being an agent didn't
rise to a prosecutorial level.
Mauldin resigned Tuesday
amid sexual-harassment com-
plaints.
"I think it was a totality of
everything going on," Klosowski
said of Mauldin's departure.
Mauldin was recently short-
listed for chief of police position
in Columbia, S.C.

PACE girls make smooth transition


Classes start
Monday morning
at the college
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Classes start Monday for the
Keys Center for Girls, the pro-'
gram that has risen from the ashes
of the now-closed PACE Center
for Girls in Key West, and the
program director says she expects
all of the PACE students to be
enrolled.

A homeless man was found
dead at Rest Beach in Key West
Thursday evening.
The man, estimated to be
between 40 and 50 years old, had
not been identified by press time
Friday, according to Key West
police spokeswoman Christie
Phillips. There was nothing sus-
picious about the death, Phillips
said, and the results of a toxicol-
ogy test are pending.
That death was the second
time a homeless man was found
dead in the Lower Keys the past


between 30 and 32 girls on
Monday," Diana Reagan said.
PACE Practical Academic
Cultural Education is a volun-
tary statewide program that pro-
vides alternative education for at-
risk girls. In early March, its lead-
ers announced that due to legisla-
tive cuts, the Key West center
would close March 31. With nine
girls destined to graduate in June,
the program's employees, volun-,
teers and students went into high
gear looking for solutions.

week.
Monday, 59-year-old Michael
Stanier was found dead at the
boat ramp at Key Haven. Known
as Gypsy, Stanier had been in the
Keys for several years. Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Deputy
Becky Herrin says there was
blood on and near Stanier's body
and that foul play is likely.
Anyone with information
about the case can contact homi-
cide detectives Mark Coleman or
Terry Smith at the Sheriff's
Office. Callers may also contact
Crime Stoppers of -the Florida
Keys. If a tip leads to an arrest,
the caller would be eligible for a
cash reward. The hotline is (800)
346-TIPS.


The Keys
Center for
Girls is now
housed on
the college's
Stock Island
campus.


Community College came to the
rescue, offering space and con-
tracting with staff through the end
of the academic year.
"Our biggest concern is keep-
ing the girls on track to the end of
the year," Reagan said. "We're
working with PACE to see that
they get textbooks and supplies
they need to see that classes go on
as they should."
The newly named Keys
Center for Girls is now housed on


the college's Stock Island cam-
pus. Program volunteer Jules
Million says the new location
may have the added bonus of
demystifying the college so the
girls are more likely to move on
with their education after they
graduate high school.
One of the benefits of the pro-
gram is a 12:1 ratio of teachers to
students.
"I really appreciate the one-
on-one learning," student Myrna
Rojas said in an interview on
"Keynoter TV News." "PACE
has helped so many girls, not just
academically, but socially, emo-
tionally, everything."

Purported gang member
charged with trafficking

An illegal migrant from El
'Salvador who authorities say is a
member of a criminal gang there
was jailed in Key Largo
Wednesday after Monroe County
Sheriff's Office searched where
he was staying and found 31
grams of cocaine, agency offi-
cials say.
Deputy Becky Herrin said that
at 4:40 p.m. detectives served the
warrant on the unlocked, unoccu-


pied home at 6 Edward Place. A
short time later, Edward Portillo,
32, returned. Once they
explained why they wererthere,
he agreed to cooperate, Herrin
said, directing them to his red
Nissan, where they found the
cocaine. He was charged with
trafficking.
Herrin said Portillo claims to
be a member of the MS 13 gang,
a known gang with ties to crimi-
nal activity of various sorts.
Immigration officials were noti-
fied of his arrest.

Groups convene
to figure out
sewer issues
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com

A condo property manager is
trying to organize owners and
managers of Islamorada hotels,
condo associations and restau-
rants to protest the likelihood
they'll have to pay hundreds of
thousands of dollars for
advanced wastewater treatment
systems twice.
Ocean Harbor Condominium
Association Property Manager
Kris Gustinger said that because
the state is holding individual
property owners responsible for
meeting advanced sewer treat-
ment standards by June 2010,
the owners of facilities with on-
site treatment plants, such as
condo complexes, hotels,
restaurants and trailer parks, are
required to dole out hundreds of
thousands to upgrade those
plants.
And because state law
requires all facilities within


reach of a central treatment
plant to hook in, those same
facility owners who paid hun-
dred of thousands to upgrade
their on-site plants will be
forced to pay thousands more to
hook into the village sewer sys-
tem once it's complete.
"When the 2010 mandate
came down, we were all
required as wastewater treat-
mnent plant owners to update our
plants, even though we are all
still required to hook up to that
sewer line when its available,"
Gustinger said.
Gustinger said that at Ocean
Harbor, upgrading the plant
involves pricey surveys and
engineer drawings in addition to
the actual construction.
"The cost of that ranges
between $150,000 and $300,000
plus per plant, and there're 68 or
69 [plants] in Islamorada alone.
All of us are faced with having
to pay' that plus another
$250,000 per [condo associa-
tion] to hook up."
The costs, she said, could
have a dramatic impact on
Islamorada's economy.


And because property own-
ers face serious penalties if they
don't upgrade their plants by the
deadline, non-compliance could
be.just as costly, Gustinger said.
"I just renewed my waste-
water treatment permit and the
first page says basically the per-
mit will be null and void in June
of 2010 if your plant has not
been upgraded. By not having
an active permit, you do get
fined up to $500 per day," she
said.
Gustinger said she's trying to
organize owners and managers
of other condominium associa-
tions, hotels, restaurants arid
mobile-home parks in
Islamorada to take action and
that so far, representatives from
about eight properties have
joined together to weigh their
options.
Gustinger said she'll host a
meeting on the subject at 11:30
a.m. April 15 at Chili Willies
Grill & Pub on Plantation Key.
All owners of on-site treatment
plants are welcome, she said.
Contact Gustinger at 852-0103

Commissioner questions police money


Lopez says no
bang for buck
with special tax
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West City Com-
missioner Clayton Lopez is
pushing for more financial
oversight into how police
funds are used in Bahama
Village.
Four Key West police offi-
cers are assigned to the neigh-
borhood, with their salaries
paid through special property
taxes called tax increment
financing. It's a funding pool
used for blighted areas sepa-
rate from the city's general
budget.
The four positions cost a
combined $330,714 in salary
and benefits, including
$90,000 for overtime, in fiscal
year 2007-08.
Lopez says he's received
complaints about a lack of
police presence in Bahama
Village. Unless the department
can show him a detailed out-
line of how the money is used,
he wants it pulled from police
salaries and spent for neigh-
borhood upgrades such as
repairs to Nelson English Park,
more sidewalks and light fix-
tures.
"I can appreciate the need to
support infrastructure but safe-
ty is paramount," acting Police
Chief Donie Lee said. "The
additional four officers
assigned to Bahama Village
and paid for by TIF provide
additional police presence and
enforcement, which is totally
dedicated to Bahama Village."


Lopez held a meeting last
week with neighborhood resi-
dents at Terry Lane, where
concerns about use of police
money were expressed. City
Manager Jim Scholl, Mayor
Morgan McPherson and Lee
also held a meeting Monday
with about 30 residents who
also had safety concerns.
Bahama Village is "one of
the few places where they have
open-air drug transactions,"
McPherson said. "I think-that
whatever level of service
[police] need, we need.to work
to find out where to get those
services.
McPherson said Bahama
Village has a higher "level of
need than the rest of the city. I
think the TIF funds are a
viable source."
"I'm still getting his con-
stituents come and tell me
there [are no [officers] out
there," Lopez said. "We
wouldn't be having this dis-
cussion if it were working."
According to Lee, the tax
funds allow for special drug
operations in the neighbor-
hood.
Officers interviewed said
that last fiscal year's budget
allowed for more police over-
time, and subsequently fewer
drug deals occurred in Bahama
-Village. An increased number
of special operations were con-
ducted but as a result, more
drug deals occurred on Center
Street one block from
Duval.
The increased drug problem
on Center Street was addressed
at police meetings last year.
Special operations typically
include the use of a confiden-


tial informant, sometimes an
alleged drug dealer in the com-
munity who's cooperating with
police. Military personnel
looking to make an extra buck
and police officers also work
as informants.
For crack cocaine, the most
common drug trafficked in that
neighborhood, police often use
a macadamia nut rolled in
flour when conducting their
operations. Officers say it
gives the appearance and
crumbles like a crack rock.
TIF has long been a con-
tentious issue, as residents say
they'd like to see that revenue
distributed evenly rather than
in the two areas of the island it
goes to now, Bahama Village
and the Key West Bight.


"With the increased budget
cuts and restraints, the elimi-
nation of TIF funding for offi-
cers would certainly equate to
less police presence and
enforcement in Bahama
Village," Lee said. "There are


only so many resources to
address crime throughout the
city. I would hate to see the
TIF funding for additional
officers in Bahama Village
cut."

Commission splits on hotel projects


By KYLE TEAL
kteal @ keynoter.com


The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday voted
down a proposal to rebuild the El,
Rancho hotel at 830 Truman
Ave., because the owner asked
for too many one-year extensions
on the project.
"Nobody is against the proj-
ect; it's a beautiful project,"
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
"It's all about sticking to city
code, which says you get a one-
year extension."
Mayor Morgan McPherson
said the property owner, listed on
city documents as Tejas Inc.,
claims the economic conditions
aren't ripe to pursue such a proj-
ect; the plans to rebuild the 50-
unit hotel was already extended
for a year in March 2007.
In May 2006, the commission
passed the owner's plan to tear


down the existing structure and
build a new one.
The commission was to meet
again as the Board of Adjustment
Wednesday to address the hotel's
plans, but a quorum was not met
and the meeting was cancelled.
Verge said some applicants
asking for extensions have
claimed delays in their projects
because of hurricane damage, but
"we're for enough away from
Hurricane Wilma now." Wilma
struck the Keys in October 2005.
"They could come back with
the same plans," McPherson said
Friday. "But they would have to
pay all of the review fees with the
planning department again."
Commissioners say they need
to set an example so project man-
agers aren't under the impression
they're entitled to two-year
extensions.


The 30,625-square-foot El
Rancho is often referred to it as a
structure badly in need of rede-
velopment. Average daily rates
for rooms range from about $122
to about $152 for early April,
according to the hotel's Web site.
In other commission business
Tuesday, a project to turn the
Seashell Motel and Hostel at 716-
718 South St. into a hotel has a
green light from commissioners,
who granted owner Denise
Ganton a cross easement with the
city to a parking space that will
be used for handicap-friendly
vans.
Ganton wants to redo the 21-
unit motel and hostel into a 17-
unit hotel, and until recently was


asking to forgo the height limita-
tion by 3 feet to fit handicap-
accessible vans into the proposed
hotel's parking garage. The park-
ing space easement is an alterna-
tive plan that solves the height
limitation issue.
"I think that anytime we can
preserve the issue of height limi-
tations and share an easement, it
works out. for everyone,"
McPherson said. "By just allow-
ing them to grant us an easement
it takes care of that."
Ganton hired Owen Trepanier
of Trepanier and Associates Inc.,
who says the redevelopment will
clean up an area he says is known
for receiving much police atten-
tion.


During public comment,
neighbors of the hostel said they
support the project and praised
the Gantons for how much
they've already improved the.
property since they bought it.
Trepanier said complaints of
prostitution, drug use and local
burglaries led many of the neigh-
bors to support the- project when
the City Commission condition-
ally approved it June 6, 2006.
Many travelers from around
the world enjoy staying at the hos-
tel for its cheap rates and the other
adventurers experienced there.
This proposal, they say, means
another, more expensive hotel will
make younger travelers turn away
from visiting Key West.

an update on the efforts of the
city's federal lobbyist in
Washington, D.C., Rick Marks.
According to a report from
the law firm of Hoffman, Silver,
-Gilman and Blasco, Marks
requested money for the follow-
ing projects: $30 million for
sewer construction, $1.5 million
for Phase II of the Little Venice
road improvement project,
$336,500 for Boot Key Harbor
development and $300,000 for
the city's emergency operations
center at the new firehouse.
+ A discussion about sewer-
system development charges for
all service areas in fall 2008.
City Finance Manager Cindy
Lawson proposed the plan at the
March 25 council meeting, but
some council members have
reservations charging assess-
ments for areas were sewers
aren't yet under construction.
+ Each of the five council
members presenting a short list
of up to 10 candidates to replace
current City Manager Mike
Puto.
City Attorney Jimmy
Morales received 68 resumes
during a month-long application
process. Twelve applicants have
experience as a city or town
manager, most of them in at
least two municipalities or coun-
ties, while another 15 have sig-
nificant government experience.
Numerous resumes were
received from unqualified appli-
cants, which Morales told the
council was likely due to them


being sent automatically
because of keywords in the
city's online advertisement.
A quasi-judicial hearing to
approve a request by the city for
a conditional-use permit author-
izing the construction of deed-
restricted affordable housing at
the city's 2.73-acre lot on 104th
Street.
Ed Swift of Old Town Key
West Development won the bid
for the development. In
December, the council passed a
resolution granting Swift a 99-
year lease for the project at $10
per year.
Swift plans to construct 40
two- and three-bedroom homes
for sale only.
A resolution approving a
license agreement with the
Educational Coalition for
Monroe County under which it
will operate a food concession
shed adjacent to the skate park at
the Marathon Community Park.
A resolution establishing a
policy that any applicant for a
development order or other
planning-related issue will be
granted only one continuance
after being scheduled and
noticed for hearing before the
council.
The resolution states resi-
dents who might potentially be
impacted by the development
attend meetings when they were
supposed to be heard and
numerous continuances create
hardships for them. It says the
council feels one continuance is
sufficient to address circum-
stances affecting an applicant.

A Big Chill arrives


New complex
a mix of Keys,
South Beach
By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keynoter Contributor


There's a new hot spot to cool
your heels in Key Largo.
The Big Chill, a restaurant
complex at Fisherman's Cove at
mile marker 104 bayside, opened
March 10 with capacity-filing
crowds.
Owner, David Toole, has


worked since the mid-'80s with
corporate chains like the
Roadhouse Grill and Logan's
Roadhouse developing success-
ful restaurant concepts,
He began designing the Big
Chill more than a year and a half
agov working with Fisherman's
Cove developers Bill Thies and
Ben Fillichio to remodel the for-
mer Italian Fisherman complex.
While he was working on the
development, Toole also pur-
chased the Lorelei restaurant in
Islamorada and moved from Fort


Lauderdale to Plantation Key.
The 25,000-square-foot
indoor/outdoor complex com-
bines many different environ-
ments in one space, all taking
advantage of the spectacular
view of Blackwater Sound.
"This has so many elements
to it," Toole said. "You can come
here four times in one week and
have four different experiences."
Guests are greeted at the
entrance by an elegant
mahogany martini bar with a
base made of red and gold

Millions of extensions expected

returns to submit their requests
for an automatic extension elec-

E-filing a request for an
extension is convenient, safe and

The extension gives taxpay-

brushed tin. Low-hanging lat-
ticework hangs from the ceiling,
creating a shadowy intimate
vibe.
Next, there is a room with a
shining tin ceiling and stainless
steel raw bar where people can
stop and sit on blue and yellow
bar stools and sample a variety
of fresh seafood like peel-and-
eat shrimp, oysters on the half
shell and Alaskan snow crab
legs.
To the right, the sports theater
has 30 different 42-inch high-
definition televisions where they
can broadcast up to 20 different
games at one time. The brick
walls, 85-seat rectangular bar,
green bar stools and two pool
tables give it a distinctive pub
feel.
Here, a variety of appetizers
are popular like homemade fried
mozzarella, barbecued chicken
potato skins and spicy naked hot
wings.
In the main restaurant, Toole
kept the decor clan and sleek
with white louvered ceilings
reminiscent of hurricane shutters
and floor-to-ceiling glass walls
that can be opened onto the out-
" side deck when the weather is
nice.
Toole said that although they
do have seafood on the menu,
all-natural corn-fed Black Angus
steak is the house specialty. They


have an in-house butcher, so
they cut their own beef and age it
about 55 days. It is then cooked
over mesquite wood.
"I wanted to be more than just
a seafood house," he said. "We
tried to bring a little bit of a dif-
ferent flavor to the menu."
Toole aimed to keep the
prices reasonable. Sandwiches
like the Big Chill fried grouper
go for $9.95, while entrees like
half a rack of baby back ribs are
priced at $15.95.
"The casual dining industry is
price-sensitive, especially in this
economy," he said. "I wanted to
price it fair and right in the mar-
ket for locals. They are going to
be our mainstay. I didn't want to
price it higher just because of the
tourists."
Outside, the tiki bar has
frozen-drink machines and a
lounging deck with "bright
orange and green cushions on
low black sofas and chairs. "This
place has a little bit of a South
Beach flair, and it fills up real
fast, especially at happy hour,"
Toole said.
The pool is available for peo-
ple who pay a monthly fee to
join the Big Chill Cabana Club
or buy a $25 day pass. On a
raised stage by the pool, there is
live reggae, blues and classic
rock every night at 6 p.m. and
during the day Saturdays and
Sunday.

The IRS expects to receive
10.3 million extension requests
during 2008 compared with 10

It is also important for exten-

ment to it, he wants to stay away
from that description.
"I don't want to use the word
'fine,'" he said. "If you say that,
people may not feel comfortable
coming in shorts and flip-flops.
We are kind of upscale for the
Keys, but it's a classy cool. It's
laid back."
The formula has been work-

very good despite the fact that he

advertising. "I wanted to learn
how to run it first since it's a new
concept," he said.
He has plans to open more
Big Chills once he finds the right

said. "That's my background,

The Big Chill is open from

The Can-Am Spyder looks almost like it came from a video game. It's not a motorcycle and not a car. It's something altogether new.


3-wheeled machine "


a new way to ride

Spyder snares thrill-seekers in its web


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Motorcycle rider Henry
Cadwallader, clad in a black T-
shirt from the Sturgis motorcycle
rally in South Dakota, grinned
broadly as, he climbed off the"
three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder.
"The fun factor is 10,"
Homestead resident Cadwallader
declared after a 24-mile test ride
in Key Largo up U.S. 1 to sharp-
curved streets off Card Sound
Road Wednesday. "It's like flying
a little airplane."
The Can-Am Spyder, new in
2008, stands out as a singular
vehicle on the road not car, not
motorcycle but something alto-
gether unique.
Caroline Alfonso, of Tavernier
said the Spyder handles more like
a four-wheel ATV than sport bike


or cruising motorcycles she has
owned.
Alfonso found the forward-
leaning driving position "a little
uncomfortable" but added, "I like
everything else."
With its two wheels up front,
the low and sleek Spyder looks
like a cat ready to pounce. A 998-
cc V-twin engine gives it plenty
of power for twisties or the high-
way a listed 106 horsepower
and 76 pounds of torque at the
single 15-inch rear wheel.
A series of computerized
brake and handling controls
keeps the 697-pound Spyder nim-
ble and steady, even in sharp
turns that logic says should be
trouble.
Can-Am is a" division of
Bombardier Recreational Products,
the Canadian company that makes
Sea-Doo personal watercraft,
Johnson-Evinrude outboards and


Can-Am ATVs. Wednesday's test
rides in Key Largo were part of a
national tour.
Riva Yamaha in Key Largo has
signed on as a dealer for the
Spyder roadster (base price
$15,500, in yellow or silver). A
five-speed manual transmission is
standard, but an automatic is
among numerous upgrade options.
All Spyders have a reverse gear.
"This is not a motorcycle," a
Can-Am briefer cautions before a
test ride. With a 60-inch wheel
base, the Spyder cannot go places


where a motorcycle can. But it
won't tip over and doesn't have
to be balanced at a stop.
The handlebar controls pro-
vide instant response, and the
seating for both operator and rider
is surprisingly comfortable. A sin-
gle foot pedal controls the ABS
system for front and back brakes.
An 11.6-gallon storage bin up
front can hold a pair of helmets or
a weekend's worth of clothes.
A motorcycle license endorse-
ment is required to operate the
Spyder on the road.

Iconic Frost found paradise


The poet's love
of Key West
was apparent
By BRIDGET MCDONALD
L'Attitudes Contributor
Many of us can relate to
the wish of poet Robert
Frost to own real estate
in the Keys. But his was a slow-
building desire.
Frost's first impression of
Key West, we know from his
letters, was less thani inspired.
But like most visitors, he was
soon to be smitten by the dusty
little island he first visited with
his wife in the 1930s.
With this knowledge and a
love of poetry, Key West cele-
brates Frost and poetry in the
Heritage House Museum garden
each year. This year, it's April 9
to 13.
Frost wistfully wrote, "Key
West: Where I long wished I
had a house. But no one would
give me one," which is printed
in his unmistakable hand on the
cover of a Depression-era Key

The 14th annual Robert
Frost Poetry Festival, the
Keys' only international
poetry event, takes place
April 9 to 13. It's based at the
Heritage House Museum
and Robert Frost Cottage,
410 Caroline St.. Key West,
and also has events at
other local venues. For
specifics on workshops and
readings, go to www.robert

West sketch book and on exhib-
it at the Heritage House. The
sketchbook was probably creat-
ed by the Works Progress
Administration as part of a proj-
ect to promote Key West as a
tourist destination (a project,
incidentally, Frost disapproved
of).
Nevertheless, we can imag-
ine Frost, circa 1939, dropping
in on his Key West friend Jessie
Porter iand, not finding her at
home, leaving this cryptic yet
suggestive message.
A frugal New England
farmer who'd supported his
family on a teacher's salary,
Frost was first published in
1894 by the New York
Independent. His poem "My
Butterfly" earned him $15. By
the late 1930s, he was doing
well enough to become a full-
time poet, but relied on speak-
ing engagements for small hon-
orariums to support his family.
Porter, known locally as
Miss Jessie, was an avid preser-
vationist who owned as many as
33 island properties during her


time. She lived at 410 Caroline
St. in what is now the Key West
Heritage House.
Miss Jessie saved the
"house" and other correspon-
dences from Frost over the 30-
year span of their friendship -
all of which are on exhibit in
the house museum that covers
everything from the Porter fam-
ily history to wrecking and yel-
low fever..
The simple garden cottage
on the Heritage House property,
where Frost slept as Miss
Jessie's guest, is now a National
Literary Landmark.
The two met when Frost first
visited Key West with his wife
Elinor, who was weak with a
heart condition and preferred to
spend her days with Miss Jessie
and Pauline Hemingway in their
Caroline Street business, the
Island Trading Post (now
Kelly's Caribbean Bar & Grill),
while "Rob" ran errands and
explored the island that eventu-
ally won him over. Elinor died
the following year, in 1938.
A hand-written copy of the
celebrated poem "The Gift
Outright," dedicated to Miss
Jessie, places their friendship in
history.
Dated "March 1959, Lower
Miami," some have suggested
the work was inspired by Miss
Jessie, a vivaciously independ-
ent, fifth-generation Conch who
was said to collect people and
houses. Frost later recited "The


Robert Frost

Keys, and
Miss Jessie
Porter, too.
But his life
was marked
by tragedy
in several
areas.
Gift Outright" at President
Kennedy's 1961 inauguration,
when weather conditions (it was
snowing and blowing) and pos-
sibly his elderly eyesight pre-
vented him from reading his
prepared poem, "The Preface."
A man who suffered from
depression, and what his daugh-
ter Lesley described as a victim
mentality, it would be fair to say
the poet had good reason to be
melancholy.
The Frosts' first son Elliott
died at age 4 from cholera.
Elinor was furious from her
husband's lack of emotion after
the death and both wondered if
the child could have been saved
had a doctor been called earlier.
Seven years later, the Frosts'
daughter Elinor Bettina died
just four days after her birth;
daughter Marjorie died in child-
birth in 1934; and son Carol, a
frustrated poet and farmer, com-
mitted suicide with a deer hunt-
ing rifle in 1940, two years after
Elinor's death.
These losses combined with
a family history of mental ill-
ness weighed heavily on the
poet throughout his life.
When Elinor died, Lesley
blamed her father, claiming the
climb to the second-floor apart-
ments he insisted on (for less
noise) were too much for
Elinor's weak heart. Lesley dis-
owned her father and refused to

There's more to cornbread than, well, cornbread


Dragonwagon
(that's her name)
presents in Keys
T he Studios of Key West
brings Crescent
Dragonwagon to south-
ernmost audiences next week.
Dragonwagon, whose birth
name is Ellen Zolotow, is the
author of children's books and a
winner of a Coretta Scott King
Book Award. She has also writ-
ten two novels, but it is her series
of cookbooks that brings her
down her to the end of the road.
Her "The Cornbread Gospels"
was named one of the 10 best
cookbooks published in 2007 by
ABC's "Good Morning America."
"The Passionate Vegetarian" won
a James Beard Award.


In brief


Author Sheehan signs
at Hooked on Books

James
Sheehan leapt
into the liter-
ary world
with the debut
of his first
novel, "The
Mayor of
Lexington
SHEEHAN Avenue." A
trial lawyer in
Tampa/St. Petersburg for 29
years, Sheehan is back with
"The Law of Second Chances,"
a fast-paced sequel to "The
Mayor of Lexington Avenue"
that involves a masterful tapes-
try of characters.
Hooked on Books, an inde-
pendent bookstore at mile
maker 81.9 oceanside, is to host
the author at 1 p.m. today for a
book signing and meet-and-
greet.
The central character in
"The Law of Second Chances,"
Jack Tobin, is a retired lawyer
working pro bono cases to free
wrongly convicted criminals.
Tobin is fighting to save
Henry Wilson's life. Wilson,
convicted for murder years
before on the testimony of one
man, has spent the past 17
years awaiting death. He only
has a few weeks left, and Tobin
is his only hope.


She will
present two
S ..- workshops
at the
Studios of
..-. .. Key West
e on culinary
-- writing.
Dragon-
wagon is
-i S no direct
relation to
F r- Key West
Judi Bradford Lucky
Street
Gallery owner Diane Zolotow,
although there is an indirect con-
nection. Ellen's father, Maurice
Zolotow, wrote for The New
York Times at the same time
Diane's father-in-law, Sam
Zolotow, wrote for the Times'
drama department. Each Zolotow
published funny stories of acci-
dentally and intentionally confus-
ing their mail at the newspaper.
Dragonwagon legally changed
her name in what she has
described as a possible act of
youthful folly, but her name was
awarded the Name of the Year in
1993 by the NOTY Committee,
a group ESPN called the "best
March Madness time waster."
Her mother was a celebrated chil-
dren's book author whose "Mr.
Rabbit's Lovely Present" was
illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
Launching the Dragonwagon
events at The Studios, 600 White
St., is a free chili tasting and
cornbread contest at 6 p.m.
Tuesday. Local residents and
chefs are invited to compete for
ribbons and prizes. Already on
board and feverishly tuning up
their recipes are professionals

DRAGONWAGON Barnes.
After the
taste-off, Dragonwagon presents
"Cornbread: Comfort, Conflict
and Continuity," about the histo-
ry, emotions and memories with
the ultimate comfort food, corn-
bread.
"The Cornbread Gospels"
describes Native American origins
of cornbread and its connections
to the Revolutionary and Civil
wars. She also covers what she
calls "the distinctions of various
cornbreads in social class, its role
in defining regionality, its place at
the family table and its future in a
world of genetic engineering."
The first workshop, "Fearless
Writing," starts with an evening
session, 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday,
followed by two 10 a.m.-to-4
p.m. days, April 10 and 11.
The second workshop,
"Writing the Culinary Memoir,"
is slotted for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
April 12 and 13.
Call Martha Barnes at the
Studios of Key West at 296-0458
to register for the workshops or
enter the cornbread contest.
Copies of "The Cornbread
Gospels" are available in Key
West at Voltaire Books, The
Restaurant Store and The
Studios of Key West.

Try a crisp Riesling for crispy food


Think about
swapping beer
for German grape
U ntil the price of cooking
oil rises at the same rate
as the price of crude,
we're likely to continue seeing
fried fish, conch, shrimp and
everything else fryable on Keys
menus.
Beer is the usual companion
beverage to fried foods but for a
nice change of pace, try a
Riesling.
Riesling is the premiere
grape of Germany but is now
grown throughout the world,
from California, to New York,
Alsace, France to Northern Italy,
Austria, Australia, New Zealand,


South
Africa and
Smwee Chile. Even
Tasmanian
Rieslings
are worth
noting.
True
Riesling is
not Grey
Riesling
(actually
Chauce
Bob Serata Gris),
Italian
Riesling, Walschriesling, Black
Riesling, Cape Riesling or
Missouri Riesling. Sylvaner
Riesling is a distant cousin,
while Emerald Riesling is a
cross-blend. None attain the
quality of the wines made from
proper Riesling grapes.

True Riesling can be found
with names like White Riesling,
Johannisberg Riesling, Rhine
Riesling (usually Italian
Riesling) and, well, Riesling.
Geography is important when
choosing a Riesling because the
wines are famous for showing
"terroir," an aroma and taste pro-
file that reflects the grape-grow-
ing location. The good news is
that when you find a particular
Riesling you like, you can usual-
ly find others from the same
geographic area that will consis-
tently satisfy your taste buds.
Ground zero for Riesling is
the area of Germany along the
Mosel River where the Saar and
Ruwer Rivers connect.'Bottlings
from this prime Riesling-grow-
ing area will have "Model-Saar-
Ruwer" printed on the label. You
can also find top quality
Rieslings from Rheingau, Nahe
and Pfaltz regions southwest of
Frankfurt.
Within each region are small-
er appellations which, of course,
are named on the labels. Perhaps
the most famous is Piesport, rep-
resented on many labels as
Piesporter plus a vineyard name
(e.g., Piesporter Michelsberg).
German Riesling labels also
show the quality level and gener-
al taste profile of the wines.


Quality designations are
DTW, which denotes common
table wine (don't waste your
money), QbA, which denotes
quality wine from a specific
region, and QmP, which denotes
quality wine with special merits.
Choose any QbA or QmP
Riesling and the wine will be of
excellent quality, subject to your
personal taste.
Sweetness is described as
Kabinett, the driest Rieslings,
Spatlese, medium-sweet, and the
progressively sweeter wines
Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein
and Trockenbeerenauslese.
You're most likely to see
Kabinetts and Spatleses on local
store shelves. The latter four cat-
egories are typically served as
desert wines,.
Whew, enough'details?
I think if you're new to
Rieslings, choose a German
Kabinett and Spatlese with QbA
or QmP on the label. You'll get a
good idea what you like best.
Then try Kabinetts or
Spatleses from Monterey
County, California and the
down-under countries -
Australia, New Zealand and
South Africa.
As a general rule German
Rieslings are light and aromatic,
slightly apple-like, with a clean,


crisp flavor. You might sense
honey and mineral flavors.
Monterey Rieslings tend to be
more lush, with stronger fruit
flavors and aromas. Their flavors
Teel thicker on the palate.
The top Australian Rieslings
come from Eden and Clare
Valleys. These wines reflect their
German heritage but add typical
Australian sturdiness. Though
the Germans do not age their
Rieslings in oak, Australian
winemakers have been experi-
menting with various storage and
aging processes. The result is
that many Australian Rieslings
show more intense citrus fruit
character than their German
counterparts.
New Zealand Rieslings run
the gamut from steely dry to
-w eet and juicy, while- South
African Rieslings tend low yards
the light and sweet
Decent Rieslings start at
about $18 a 750 ml bottle, but
there are plenty of mass-pro-
duced Rieslings in stores for
under $15 per bottle (caveat
emptor). Though top-rated
Rieslings can sell for $80 to
$300 a bottle, you can find great
Spatleses and Kabinetts in the
$20 to $40 range by visiting a
good independent wine shop in
the Keys.

C'mon in, let's share a glass


Wine artist
Arvid returns
to Key West
Thomas Arvid, considered
what is called a wine
artist, breezes into Key
West April 11 and 12 for a
weekend of art, wine and rev-
eling at A Boy and His Dog
Fine Art, 619 Duval St.
Arvid describes his work as
American realism that depicts
the enjoyable, nostalgic ele-
ments associated with sharing
wine with friends, striving to
make his work accessible. And


he feels the same way-about
wine.
By bringing art and wine
together in realistic but unpre-
tentious scenes, he breaks
down traditional barriers sur-
rounding both.
"My pieces are about get-
ting a bottle open and sharing
a-glass with friends," he says.
In the early 1990s, before
Arvid painted strictly wine
images, he was painting red
images that were about com-
fort. Those familiar objects -
Radio Flyer wagons, crushed
Coke cans evoked response
not unlike his wine images.
"My works today aren't so


much about the bottles and the
labels; I'm creating an infor-
mal landscape that falls
between two people," Arvid
says. "It's about the comfort-
able moment. The bottle, the
knife, the corkscrew, the cork,
the foil crinkled up, at ran-
dom. That moment of 'I'm so
glad you stopped by,' sitting at
the counter sipping and talking
about kids, career, stuff. When
you open a bottle of wine, you
slow down and open up."
The Kennesaw, Ga., resi-
dent will be at A Boy and His
Dog from 6 to 10 p.m. both
days of his stay.


Bay Jam rocks on Sunday

bands scheduled

With at least 15 bands

tory.
The music fest runs from 11
a.m. to 9 p.m. at the TIB Bank
of the Keys Amphitheater in

"Whatever your musical
tastes, this year's Bay Jam will
have something for you," said
David Feder, board president of
Islamorada Community
Entertainment, which is staging
the fest. "This event really
focuses on raising money for art
and music scholarships for local
high school students and in-
school programs and necessary
supplies. It's the community's
chance to financially support

In brief

Lennon's artwork returns


Former Beatle's
sketches show
rare insight
F r the second year in a row,
rare artwork by John
Lennon is coming to Key
West for three days of exhibi-
tion.
The traveling exhibit, "In My
Life," features more than 100
pieces of art both for viewing
and for sale that were created by
the former Beatle encompassing
the years 1968 through 1980.
Rudy Siegel, media relations
director of Legacy Fine Art and
Productions, which is staging the
show, says it's rare for the
Lennon collection to be dis-
played in the same city in con-
secutive years but that Lennon's
widow, Yoko Ono, so likes Key
West that she wanted a return
engagement.
Before Lennon was a Beatle,
he was an artist, attending the
Liverpool Art School for three
years. The drawings in this
exhibit depict his years as a visu-
al artist and family man.
It includes lithographs signed
by Lennon in 1970, rare original
drawings from the '60s and lim-
ited-edition prints reproduced
from his drawings and signed by
Ono, including the "Real Love:
The Drawings for Sean" edi-
tions, created for Lennon's son.
"I think John's art, for the
most part, represents old-fash-


ioned family traditions," Ono
says. "He made a lot of social
statements but there's a lot about
the family in his works.
The ever-changing exhibit has
been one of the most-attended
art showings in America for the
past 15 years and has raised hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars for
charities- throughout the world.
In Key West, the beneficiary is
AIDS Help.
"In My Life" is on display at

available in Islamorada.

In brief


Library boosters
host four poets

The Friends of the Library
Lecture Series in Key West con-
cludes its season Monday with
readings by poets Brewster
Chamberlin, Nell Husted,
Rosanne Potter and Stephen
Wiley in celebration of National
Poetry Month.
The program begins at 6 p.m.
at the Tropic Cinema, 416 Eaton
St. Admission is free.
Chamberlin worked for sever-
al decades as a historian,
archivist, university teacher, lec-
turer and author while living in
Manhattan, Germany, France,
Italy, Washington, D.C., and
Greece. In 2001 he retired from
an executive position at the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Museum in
Washington D.C. to move to
Key West to concentrate on nov-
els revolving around 20th centu-
ry Berlin.
Husted and her friend Gail
Browne assembled a collection
of poems and block prints called
"Provincetown Cuts." Published
in 2003, the poems were written
during the early years of the
AIDS epidemic in a town
already decimated by the demise
of the fishing industry.
Potter is the author of "Key
West, Transit of Venus," a book
of poetry illustrated by some of
her own abstract expressionist


paintings and published by Sea
Story Press.
Wiley is an attorney and for-
mer New Jersey state senator
who published his first book of
poetry, "Hero Island," in 2005
and his second, "Mockingbird
Come Home," in 2007.

Slate appointed
full-time manager

The Key West Film
Society/Tropic Cinema has hired
Mark Darby Slater as managing
director. He had been serving as
interim managing director since
November.
The Tropic is the Florida
Keys' only permanent not-for-
profit art movie theater.
A founding board member of
the Key West Film Society,
Slater served as board secretary
for six years. He voluntarily
resigned his board position last
year to become operational head
of the popular Eaton Street
movie house.
Slater moved to Key West
1992 to pursue his passion of
screenwriting. He then spent
four years in California writing
screenplays for film producer
Mark Steinberg and returned to
Key West in 1999 where he con-
tinues to write.
"Mark brings not only a real
hands-on understanding of films
and filmmaking to his work, but

Anfinson's works
show at the Studios

Painter Eric Anfinson's new
body of work is now on exhibit,
and will remain so until April 25
at the Studios of Key West, 600
White St.
Anfinson's display, "the blue
thread-one life/beautiful life,"
features more than 20 original
oils on canvas.
"The blue thread is the path,"
Anfinson says, "while one
life/beautiful life is the intention
of healing."
For the past several years, the
former Lemonade Stand Art
Studio artist has chosen women
more often than not as his sub-
jects.
"The feminine is a healing
aspect which I am so often
drawn to. My greatest depth of
healing is in discovering the
feminine within myself. It's what
we all do," he says. "We try to
heal ourselves."

Kay was a mystery


FROST / From 22

let him visit her children.
Frost's grief over losing
Elinor and the ensuing blame
had provoked him to consider
ending his own life, according
to one friend.
When he developed a rela-
tionship with his new assistant
Kay Morrison, the same year
Elinor died, many who knew
the poet were shocked and criti-
cal. Frost became strongly
attracted to Kay, the wife of
poet Theodore Morrison, who
had been Frost's friend. In
1938, Frost hired Kay as his
secretary and adviser, but she
may also have become his
lover, according to Frost biogra-
phers. A photo of the couple sit-
ting with Miss Jessie in her
Caroline Street home hangs in
the Heritage House.
We know that Frost com-

'Key West:
Where I long

posed one of his finest love
poems for Kay: "A Witness

between the two, Kay remained
married to Ted until his death in
the-70s.
And although his infatuation
with Kay did not win Frost any
favor with his children, Robert
Frost, "the people's poet," was
but a mortal man with the usual
weaknesses and desires.

Spa Day benefits
health coalition

Imagine getting a relaxing
massage and knowing the
money you've spent will help
another woman's unborn
child. Consider the advantages
of getting a pedicure while
helping an uninsured mother-
to-be get prenatal care.
These and other dual deeds
are possible for everyone dur-
ing Spa Day, a fundraiser for
the Florida Keys Healthy Start
Coalition that takes place 2 to
6 p.m. April 13 at the
Beachside Resort and
Conference Center in Key
West.
Last year alone, the coali-
tion served more than 750
families in Monroe County by
providing education, support
and resources to pregnant
moms and infants.
The Florida Department of
Health reported the infant
mortality rate in Monroe
County for 2004-05 was 5.4


deaths per 1,000 live births.
For minorities the rate is even
higher.
The Florida Keys Healthy
Start Coalition supports
healthy birth outcomes
through health-care-related
services for new and expectant
families in Monroe County.
Spa tickets can be pur-
chased for $5 each; services
range from one .to six tickets.

Marathon looks
for high finish
on Miami courts
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

With rules changes allowing
both the first- and second-place
teams to advance to regionals,
Marathon High School tennis
coach Mark Hooper said hopes
are high entering the district
tournament play Monday.
Hooper has had players
advance on an individual basis
in his nine years as coach, but
never has a Dolphins team made
it to regionals. Class 2A power
Ransom Everglades has consis-
tently dominated districts, field-
ing nationally and international-
ly ranked players in its lineup.
"This year the girls have done
really well and I hope they do
well at districts. I think we have


a great chance to advance to
regionals since first and second
place advance this year," Hooper
said. "Our goal is to meet
Ransom in the finals because if
we get to the final in enough
matches we'll- advance as a
team, which would be the first
time ever."
Marathon (14-4) finished
third district 16-1A this year,
behind Ransom and Carrollton
School. The Dolphins lost twice
to Carrollton in close matches,
5-2 and 4-3,
"We're very competitive with
them this year and we're going
to give them a run for their
money," Hooper said.
The kids have been practicing
three hours each day during the
day to get ready for the weather
conditions and long day of ten-
nis Monday. Matches at districts

By KEVIN WADLOW

Eight Coral Shores High
School girls lacrosse players
were named to the all-district
team by a vote of circuit coach-
es.
Four Lady Hurricanes were
named to the first-team honors
squad: Attackers Rachel
Catanio, Brittany Wood and
Vallarie Ostenson, and defender
Kelsey Garcia.
Selected for the second team
in District 4-A were midfielders
Lexi Glista and Melissa Sante,
defender Anna Noe and fresh-
man goalkeeper Dannon
Magrane.


Coral Shores went 5-1 in dis-
trict play, finishing first in the
regular-season standings. The
Lady Hurricanes have the top
seed in the four-team district
playoff beginning April 15 at
Coral Shores.
"I am very proud of the
-acknowledgement that these
girls are receiving because of all
of their hard work this year,"
coach Mark Hall said.
Catanio was the leading scor-
er for the Canes with 29 goals
and five assists. She also
grabbed 113 ground balls.
Wood connected for 22 goals
and four assists, with 108
ground balls. Ostenson had 17
goals.
Garcia forced 23 turnovers
and got 102 ground balls. Even

Baseball Conchs up and down


Lopsided loss
follows two
baseball wins
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


After splitting four games in a
spring-break tournament, the
Key West High School baseball
team returns to District 16-4A
play this week with games
Tuesday afternoon at Reagan


and Friday night at home against
St. Brendan.
The Conchs (10-12 overall,
3-5 in district) lost Thursday
afternoon to Palm Beach
Gardens, 15-2, in the consola-
tion title game of the National
Grand Slam Tournament in
Wellington. The defeat came
after victories Tuesday (12-6
over Cardinal Newman) and
Wednesday (6-2 over Forest
Hills).


Thursday's game, which was
called after the fifth inning
because of the mercy rule, was
pretty much over 20 minutes
after it began. Palm Beach
Gardens (15-4) scored eight runs
in the top of the first against jun-
ior pitcher Kevin Hernandez.
After Hernandez walked the
first two batters, the Gators'
Nick Rickles hit a potential dou-
ble-play grounder to third base-
man Charlie Walker-Yhap, who
let the ball go through his legs.
Before the inning was over,


Hernandez was stung for a sin-
gle, three doubles, a triple and a
sacrifice fly.
The Conchs got two runs
back in their first on an RBI
triple by hot-hitting Frankie
Ratcliff, who then scored on a
wild pitch.
Palm Beach Gardens, which
had 16 hits, scored five more
runs against reliever D.J.
Elomina in the third. With the
game out of reach, coach Miguel
Hernandez called on outfielder
Jason Zamora and first baseman


Kyle Lepine as his next relief
pitchers.
"We were a little bit over-
whelmed. It was one of those
days, but we're a better team for
coming up here," said
Menendez, whose wife Lori
gave birth to a son hours before
the tournament began.
The Conchs had only three
hits, one by Andrew Rodriguez,
a seldom-used junior outfielder
who emerged from anonymity
with a 4-for-8, 3-RBI perform-
ance in the tournament.


Brossard to get a bye


TENNIS / From 34

are best-of-three sets, as opposed
to the single eight-game pro sets
the kids play during the regular
season.
"I wish Spring Break wasn't a
week before districts; half the
team is away. It's tough to gear
up all season long and then have
this lull before districts," Hooper
said.
Matches begin at 7:30 a.m. at
Continental Park in Miami.
Freshman No. 1 Marisa
Brossard is likely to receive a
first-round bye, as she finished
undefeated in district play.
Following Brossard in singles
play will be No. 2 Angela
Farello, No. 3 Rose Bellevue,
No. 4 Michele Bellevue and No.


5 Kelsey Wonderlin.
Brossard and F arello will
play No. 1 doubles and Hooper
has yet to name a No. 2 team.
Any of the players who
advance through the first day's
play will stay the night and com-
pete in the finals Tuesday,
Hooper said.
"I think the girls have a very
good chance to advance," he
said. "The girls are young and
have a bright future in front of
them."
The boys team has struggled
this year, finishing 3-13 in the
regular season. Hooper said the
boys would need a strong effort
against superior competition to
advance to regionals.
"I'm not sure we're solid
enough to do it this year,"
Hooper said.

Lady Fins head into final stretch


Softball team
stands at 7-7,
resumes Tuesday
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's hard to take something
positive away from a 12-0 loss,
but Marathon High School soft-
ball coach Andrea Murphy said
the team could only benefit from
playing a team as good as
Riverdale High.
The Dolphins were mercy-


ruled by the Raiders March 28
Friday in five innings at the
Conch Classic in Key West. The
team now stands at 7-7 with two
games remaining in its regular
season.
The Dolphins finish up their
regular season with a Tuesday
visit to Palmer Trinity School and
a home finale Friday against
Doral Academy at 4 p.m.
"We didn't even play that bad;
they were solid from top to bot-
tom," Murphy said of Riverdale,
from Fort Myers. "They're one of


the best high school teams I've
seen play. It's one of those games
where you can't be disappoint-
ed."
The Raiders had 18 hits com-
pared with the Dolphins five.
Murphy said Riverdale's pitcher
threw hard and had great move-
ment.
"It's good for the girls to face
really good pitchers. We did well,
we had a handful of strikeouts but
we were at least making contact,"
she said.
Shelby Kuck, Samantha
Rodamer, Megan Gardner,
Melanie Boyd and Sarah Melia


each had a hit for the Dolphins.
The Dolphins were missing
starters Alexis Culver and Kelley
Struyf for the game, forcing
Murphy to rearrange her defen-


sive alignment.
"We had to shift the lineup, so
Melanie played left field and played
a really good game," she said.
