The Monroe County School
District could cut as many as 38
positions from 12 schools
because of a dwindling budget
and less state funding.
Tuesday in Key West,
Superintendent Randy Acevedo


Administrators, others expected
to return to the classrooms


proposed to the School Board
eliminating 38 positions and cut-
ting discretionary spending by 15
percent to meet a board-imposed
$88 million cap on the 2008-09


budget.
The cap, approved -b the
board last month, is about $6 mil-
lion less than the $94 million
spent by the school district in
2007-08.
On the chopping block are

Wounded vets
treated to Keys
dive vacation
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

For six days this month, 10
soldiers from the U.S. Army's
101st Airborne Division and
four Marines, all wounded vet-


erans of Iraq and Afghanistan,
got a chance to leave behind the
rigors of military life and the
sadness of army hospitals to
dive the blue waters off Key
Largo.
The soldiers' and Marines'
wounds vary in severity. Most
are able to walk without assis-
tance and in fact, most appear to
be healthy and able bodied.


But talk to each one, and
you'll find out they've dealt
with difficulties and hardships
- both mental and physical -
that few would care to imagine.
Almost -all, like Staff Sgt.
Todd Shaw, have been wound-
ed multiple times mostly
from improvised explosive
devices and sent back into
combat. "I've been blown up 15

Gastesi


deal is on


the table

$145,000 to start
with $10,000 more
possible Dec. 1
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission will be a step closer to
bringing on board a new county
administrator after its regular
Wednesday meeting. On tap:
Approval of a contract for
Roman Gastesi.
If the commission approves
the proposed contract and
Gastesi accepts it, he will begin
work May 12.
The contract would commit
the county to a salary of
$145,000 for Gastesi's first six
months. That would be boosted
to $155,000 Dec. 1.
The job was advertised as
paying anywhere between
$107,000 and $150,000, depend-
ing on qualifications.
The proposed contract
includes health insurance and
retirement benefits that amount
to about 30 percent of the salary,
moving his total starting package
to more than $196,000.

Mentoring also at risk


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


- A state budget cut that axes
$47 million in bonuses and schol-
arships for teachers who earn
national certification could
prompt an increase in teacher
turnover in Keys public schools,
officials say.
For years, Florida offered
bonuses to teachers who earn cer-
tification from the National Board
for Professional Teaching
Standards, and also paid $2250
of the $3,065 in fees required for
each teacher to become certified.
But on April 2, a state Senate
committee approved a proposal to
cut $47 million in incentives for
teachers who earn the certifica-
tion.
Teachers will still receive a
yearly bonus for their first 10
years of certification, but scholar-
ships that cover application fees
and bonuses for certified teachers
who mentor new teachers will be
completely cut.
The cut will not be made offi-
cial until the Legislature adopts
the state budget later this month.
In Keys public schools, where
teacher turnover is already higher
than anywhere else in the state,


about 40 national board-certified
teachers are relied upon to mentor
teachers in their first through third
years of employment.
According to United Teachers
of Monroe President Leon
Fowler, mentors earn 10 percent
of the state average teachers'
salary in exchange for 92 hours of
well-documented service, which
does not include preparation time,
only face-to-face mentoring.
"That kind of cut would
reduce the incentive for teachers
to become national board certi-
fied and to become mentors. We
certainly wouldn't want to see
that. When you look at our
teacher turnover, if a teacher stays
three years, they're generally
going to stay for the long haul,"
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said, adding, "I think it's going to
have an impact on teacher
turnover."
Lisa Taylor, a board-certified
third-grade teacher at Key Largo
School, agrees.
"The No. 1 reason that new
teachers leave the field is non-
support in the classroom; they
feel overwhelmed and they
leave," she said. "The national


board nientoring model has made
a huge difference."
Taylor said the national board
program is successful in' part
because it rewards teachers who
work collaboratively, whereas
performance-based bonuses tend
to reward competitive behavior.
"Performance pay limits the
number of teachers that- can get
that pay. If you want the pay,
you're not going to help some--
body else because they're com-
peting with you to get the money.
That's not good for education.
The whole underlying crux of
what national board is about is
teachers supporting each other
and teachers working together,"
she said.
National board-certified teach-
ers also tend to see higher levels
of student achievement in their
classrooms, proponents say.
"It's the most rigorous and
rewarding thing I've done in my
whole teaching career," Taylor
said, "but if someone said you
need $3,000 to see if you get it, I
think it would totally deter people
from attempting it. There'll be
very few people who are willing
to risk $3,000 plus of their pay to
go through a process that 30 per-
cent of the teachers pass."


Cuts to be across spectrum


SCHOOLS / From 1

be forced to lay off employees.
Instead, he said, assistant prin-
cipals and curriculum resource
teachers will be encouraged to
return as classroom teachers, and
other positions will be left vacant
through attrition.
In addition to the job cuts,
Acevedo also proposed cutting:
+ Discretionary spending in
schools by 15 percent.
$500,000 in school insur-
ance premiums.
$315,000 in maintenance
spending.
$75,000 in transportation.
$400,000 in the Exceptional
Student Education Department.
$270,000 in the clerical
budget.
Those cuts would save the dis-
trict, almost $3.5 million but
would likely result in more posi-
tions being cut at the administra-
tive level, Acevedo said.
He also said the district could
save about $300,000 by offering


early retirement incentives to
three administrators close to
retirement.
Because the budget won't be
finalized until the summer,
Acevedo said. that if schools
"have a way and really have a
desire, they can find a way to
trade the positions back" by
swapping the funding for that
position with funding for another
one.
Schools statewide are cutting
back on spending in .anticipation
of a $3 billion cut in the state
budget, which largely targets edu-
cation.
Proposed state budgets in both
the Senate and House also require
school districts to fund a higher
percentage of their budgets with
local property taxes than in previ-
ous years.
Acevedo said all cuts were
made in areas that "keep impact
as minimal as possible to
schools."
Acevedo also presented new
job descriptions and a new salary
schedule for 95 'administrators


who had previously been earning
extra, or supplemental, pay.
The board voted 3-2 in
February to do away with supple-
mental pay, which had for years
drawn accusations of giving
unfair bonuses to administrators.
Since 2006, two independent
audits and a report from the state
Auditor General's Office criti-
cized the district for the amount
of supplemental. pay given to
administrators.
Both independent audits sug-
gested doing away with supple-
ments or rolling them into admin-
istrative salaries, but administra-
tors argued they were awarded
supplements only for work done
outside of their job descriptions.
Unlike the old salary schedule,
Acevedo's proposed salary sched-
ule does not rely solely on years of
experience to place administrators
at certain pay levels.
"It would be up to me to place
them on the salary scale depend-
ing on experience and what they
do," Acevedo said.

Soldiers get a treat

times," he said.
Sgt. Ted Reesman, 33, said he
was wounded nine times. His
wounds left him with nerve dam-
age in his right leg, frontal lobe
damage, "behavioral changes"
and impaired cognitive, skills.
Twenty-two-year old Marine
Corps Lance Cpl. Jeremy Stengel
lost his left leg from an impro-
vised explosive device blast.
Doctors haven't decided if they
will amputate his right leg, which.
was left badly mangled.
At first glance, you wouldn't
know Army Spc. Glenn Gentles
was wounded. That is unless he
took off his sunglasses and you'd
see he still has a piece of shrapnel
lodged in one eye socket. When
Gentles exits the water and
removes his tinted swim goggles,
someone has to immediately
hand him his sunglasses before
he can open his eyes.
The servicemen were brought
down to the Keys through the
efforts of the Wounded Warriors
project at Fort Campbell, Ky., a
nonprofit aimed at helping veter-
ans adjust to life after being
wounded, and Fraser Bathgate, a
Scottish diver, himself in a
wheelchair since 1986, who is the
vice president and director of
training at the International
Association of Handicapped
Divers.
"I was asked to train dive
instructors at Fort Campbell.
[While there] I had a concept in
my head about bringing wounded
soldiers to the Keys to dive. I
approached [Key Largo dive
shop] Ocean Divers, whom I
have known for many years, and
they agreed to help us out. It's a
dream come true."
"Diving is the only sport
where you can leave the wheel-
chair behind and get a 360 degree
perspective. You're not tied to the
wheelchair anymore," he said.
From working with wounded
soldiers at Fort Campbell,
Bathgate also said he discovered
diving was a good activity for
those suffering from painful
injuries.
"I had one soldier say to me
when he's in the water, he doesn't
hurt anymore," he said.
Most of the soldiers were
flown down from their base at
Fort Campbell, Ky., and the
Marines are from Walter Reed
Army Medical Center in
Waihin(rtnn Tl C the Nitional


Naval Medical Center in
Bethesda, Md., and Camp
LeJeune, S.C.
The first spot on the service-
men's April 6 dive trip was White
Bank Dry Rocks. A few of the
men and some of their wives had
some difficulties determining
how much weight was required
to stay down in the saltwater, but
they quickly got the hang of it
enough for Lou Howell, captain
of the Santana, to determine they
were ready for Molasses Reef, a
world renowned dive spot, also
part of the National Marine
Sanctuary.
While White Bank piqued
their interest, the soldiers and
Marines said they were amazed
by Molasses.
"I saw more color than I've
ever seen in my whole life," said
Sgt. Adam Schoenwald. "My
saltwater aquarium has nothing
compared to this."
The rest of the group was just
as impressed.
"I've never seen anything like
it," said Sgt. Joseph Elmore;
Marine Sgt. Matthew
Brouseau, 22, agreed. "It was
beautiful. I saw a lot of big fish
and I saw a stingray." Brouseau
was the only member of the
group wounded in Afghanistan.
He broke his pelvis after the
building he ran into was attacked
and exploded. He had to be dug
out of the rubble by his com-
rades.
Bathgate said he's involved
with the program not only as a
way to give back to the soldiers
for sacrificing for their county,
but also because he says their
country isn't doing enough to
thank them, or even take care of
them in their time of need."
"The program teaches the
guys to look after themselves
because no one is looking after
them properly," he said. "The
military isn't doing enough. Their
attitude is, 'you've been blown
up, you're done, so long.' I can't
understand how you can leave
them behind like that."
"It's humbling. These guys
taking care of us and taking us
out here, it's tremendous.
They've treated us like rock
stars," said 26-year old Marine
Sgt. Stanley Mayer.

Deal on table


GASTESI / From I

The contract includes a
$650 monthly transportation
allowance. His predecessor
was paid $800 a month for
transportation.
Former County
Administrator Tom Willi was
making close to $166,000
when he was fired without
cause in December. With bene-
fits, the total value of Willi's
salary package when he left
was more than $200,000.
Willi walked away with
$282,000 in severance, due
largely to a clause that paid
him nine months of salary if
terminated without cause. The
proposed contract for Gastesi
pares that down to six months
salary if he's let go without
cause, plus the cash value of
three months health insurance
premiums.
Gastesi's contract does not
contain any reimbursement for
moving, unlike the $8,000
paid to Willi to move from
Davie in Broward County to
the Keys.
Gastesi has been working in
Miami but has a home in
Islamorada. His office will be
in Key West, and he said he's
not yet sure how he will swing
the logistics.
Gastesi was selected April 2
in a 3-2 vote over three, other
potential candidates.
Commissioners Mario Di
Gennaro, Sonny McCoy and


Dixie Spehar selected Gastesi
in a written ballot.
Commissioners Sylvia
Murphy and George Neugent
cast votes for county employee
Reggie Paros.
In a second round of voting,
the same split occurred and
former Sunrise City Manager
Patrick Salerno was selected
as the second choice if negoti-
ations with Gastesi fall
through.
If Gastesi's attitude is any
indicator, negotiations are not
,going to fall through. He's
fast-tracking himself to
become familiar with the
county's issues and operations
so he can take the reins in
May.
Gastesi says he's not con-
cerned about the split decision
that tagged him for the job, nor
is he concerned the faces on
the commission may change
with November's election.
"We have 13 commission-
ers in Miami-Dade," he said.
"And they're always changing,
either from retiring or indict-
ments. I am accustomed to
changes."
Gastesi worked for Miami-
Dade County from 1987 until
1997 and again from 2001
until 2005. He also worked for
the South Florida Water
Management District.
The County Commission
meets Wednesday starting at 9
a.m. at the Harvey Govern-
ment Center in Key West.

e Opinion


Likely say goodbye

to Boot Key Bridge

Conundrum: "(1) A riddle in which a fanciful question is
answered by a pun. (2) A paradoxical, insoluble or difficult
problem."
American Heritage dictionary
What to do about the Boot Key Bridge in Marathon might fit
both descriptions.
Some argue that even thinking about replacing the now-
closed bridge at a price tag of $8 million to $10 million is non-
sense, fitting the "fanciful" part of the dictionary definition for
conundrum.
But private landowners on Boot Key will argue from a very
different perspective. In fact, radio station owner Joe Nascone
has threatened to sue the city if the bridge is not rebuilt, thus
devaluing his property.
How much value would he and others lose?
The city paid for an appraisal to better determine the impact
of the bridge (or no bridge) for owners of the 1,127-acre island.
Because so much of the acreage on Boot Key is wetlands or
habitat that can never be developed, values were found to be
lower than many thought.
According to the appraisal just turned in, Boot Key with the
bridge is valued at $3.4 million. Without bridge access, the esti-
mate drops to $1.47 million.
Weigh that $1.93 million difference against even the lowest
price tag to redo the bridge $8 million and it's easy to see
why most believe the bridge is a goner.
Among many intriguing ideas to surface is one that would
look for the city to possibly buy out the private property own-
ers' interests and partner with an environmental group or foun-
dation to preserve Boot Key as a nature preserve.
One councilman even talks about an eco-park and ponders
the potential tourism draw that could bring as an economic
benefit to the city.
There is a lot more tough negotiating ahead.
But we don't think Boot Key will ultimately fit the second
definition of conundrum, the part about being "insoluble."

Fields plays it right so far

Islamorada's new village manager, Ken Fields, hasn't been
on the job long, but early results look promising.
Fields held his first staff-council workshop Wednesday with
the goal of operating more efficiently.
One outcome: He's drafting new proposals for garbage col-
lection services that will increase incentives for recycling.
That's a move in the right direction for residents and the Keys
environment.
Not a bad first at-bat. Let's hope he scores on this one.

Village has been progressive on sewer construction


EDITOR:
Before the Islamorada Village Council elec-
tion, a Keynoter editorial implied the then-sit-
ting council was not moving forward on deliv-
ering advanced wastewater treatment. Nothing
can be further from the truth-.
Let's recap where the village is on waste-
water:1
Last year, council decided not to go forward
with a pipeline to Key Largo. Keynoter editori-
als continue to say the village is vague on the
issue. We are not undecided and minutes of
that meeting make it very clear.
That council spent most'of our time and
efforts for a full year stopping the bleeding on
the faulty collection system of phase one.
Nevertheless, we have pipes to more than
1,300 homes and businesses in phases 1 and 2,
and the system is now successfully operational
and was 60 percent grant-funded.
In September, council authorized through
resolution the instrument to create the oft-
referred-to funding mechanism. There are those
who just jumped on board this idea claiming
innovative thinking. But frankly, that council
had been there, done that.
We anticipate discussions this spring to
identify the process that special assessment
will use to plan Upper Matecumbe, Windley
and lower Plantation Key wastewater treat-
ment.
In October, council designated Indian

Keep tabs on
the Village Council
EDITOR:
I am thrilled about the number of votes I
received and the confidence displayed with 41
percent in the March 11 Islamorada Village
Council general election. I will continue to run
for office each and every election, for we
brought out the need for change, real issues
and the need for reform of our village govern-
ment.
We now must watch and hold our elected
officials to their campaign .promises of open-
ness; choices by referendum; reduction in
taxes and fees; smaller government; fewer
employees; permitting reform; replacing of the
Miami law firm with an in-house, problem-
solving attorney; recovery of bogus legal
billing and bad contracts; letting local business
compete and expand; moving the election to
coincide with state and national elections to
improve turnout and reduce costs; and future
polling to get the council out of its bubble.
If our elected officials stay true to their
promises, we can then expect referendums for
spending limits, capitol improvements, waste-
water options, budget-cap increases, and a per-
manent ethics committee.
I want to thank all of my neighbors for all
their support in this campaign. I had a lot of
fun and am very proud to bring out the real
issues for real change.

Islamorada


Waterway and Indian Mound as Phase 3 of the
North Plantationi Key plant and has since
secured $500,000 from the federal government,
making this project approximately 40 percent
grant funded.
Also in the fall of 2007, the village secured
a $3.8 million grant for a 75 percent
Environmental Protection Agency-funded
decentralized system for Lower Matecumbe
and set up a citizen steering committees for
significant public input.
In January, in conjunction with other county
entities, a countywide schedule of all waste-
water projects with costs and completion dates
was submitted to state Rep. Stan Mayfield
detailing our commitment to advanced waste-
water treatment.
Despite, wasting two years on discussions
revolving around a Key Largo pipeline and the
phase 1 set backs, that council moved forward
on wastewater like never before.
Also up for dispute is the impression the
village has maintained a "no grants, no plants"
policy. While this might have been the rallying
call in years past, the council moved away
from that strategy. In fact, the resolution
declaring we would not go forward without 50
percent funding was rescinded in July 2007
and instead council endorsed the guiding prin-
ciple of "best efforts."
The Village Council determined rather than
upholding a "no grants, no plants" policy or
even worse, saddling residents with a $200
monthly wastewater bill, we are taking a cen-
trist stance. That is, we will continue to work
with county and state officials to achieve the
advanced wastewater treatment we seek. Even
so, going it alone is not the answer.
As elected officials, we understand it is our
duty to follow the law and do our very best to
meet the 2010 sewer deadline. However, it is
also our responsibility to scrutinize all propos-
als and reject those that will do harm to our
citizens. But make nd mistake; we are moving
decisively and steadily to accomplish our
wastewater mission.

Keys Opinion


Saturday, April 12, 2008


Everyone needs sewers, but also equal treatment


EDITOR:
It really disturbs me that residents and pub-
lic servants of the Keys will look for every
excuse not to protect the environment that most
of us here enjoy in one way or another.
We use every excuse not to support sewering
of the Keys as we continue to pollute and kill
the waters that we so enjoy. The residents say
it's too expensive and government agencies
responsible for wastewater treatment in the
Keys say some areas remain too difficult to
hook up. Sewers are not a new thing for most
of America. The Florida Keys are not a Third
World country.
Yes, septic tanks may work well to filter out
solids, but what about nutrients that cause algae
to thrive and deplete our canals and nearshore
waters of oxygen, leaving these areas void of
other marine life. What about pharmaceuticals
that don't get filtered out and wind up in our
canals and near shore waters? And how about
viruses and bacteria that remain in the effluent?
Do we not think these things affect marine life
and contribute to the degradation of our waters?
Don't blame Tallahassee for mandating this.
Blame ourselves for not paying attention as the
state's 2010 sewer deadline is fast approaching.
Hold our officials accountable for this mess and
don't re-elect them if they haven't been paying


attention. The county received consideration for
implementing a comprehensive plan. That con-
sideration came in the form of building permits
and funding from the state because the Keys
are designated an Area of Critical State
Concern.
Residents of the Keys who do not get
hooked up to wastewater treatment should
demand equal treatment to those that are
hooked up or going to be. Shouldn't our canals
benefit as other areas with advanced treatment
benefit? (Reduced algae will restore life to our
canals and the elimination of viruses, bacteria
and pharmaceuticals should make swimming in
nearshore waters safer.)
Shouldn't we have same hook-up cost as
other county residents? Why should we experi-
ence a cost two to four times that of other areas
by being required to individually purchase the
best available technology for 2010? Residents
of this county should be treated equitably.
The economy and the budget deficits will
turn around a lot quicker than we can improve
our nearshore water quality. Should we not take
the steps necessary to protect this fragile
ecosystem? Step up to the 21st Century; the
ocean is not our dumping ground.

Mainland's ocean outfalls waste precious resource


EDITOR:
Southeast Florida is fouling its ocean waters.
Three-hundred million gallons of poorly treated
sewage is discharged every day straight into the
ocean and onto coral reefs that we depend upon
for recreation, tourism, food and economic bene-
fits. It's poor stewardship of our precious natural
resources and needs to come to an end.
Reef Relief, based in Key West, has allied
with the Florida Coastal and Oceans Coalition to
put a stop to the decades-long practice of dump-
ing wastewater into the sea. By treating and recy-
cling wastewater for beneficial uses rather than
discharging the precious liquid into the ocean, we
not only protect the ocean's health, we ensure
fresh drinking water for Florida's future.
Our own community and others throughout
Florida have already benefited from embracing
the readily available and proven technology of
advanced wastewater treatment. Some communi-
ties reuse up to 80 percent of the water for indus-
trial cooling or irrigating golf courses, lawns and
crops. This forward-thinking policy conserves our
drinking water supply and protects our coastal
waters and coral reefs.
But while the majority of the state has reached
61 percent daily reuse, the southeast region -
including Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Broward
counties averages only 6 percent reuse. They
are still following an antiquated practice begun in
the 1940s. Why? Because it was cheap and, until
now, out of sight and out of mind.
Every year along the southeast Florida coast,
six ocean outfalls squander more than 100 billion
gallons of fresh water, much of which could be
treated and reused. Since 1970, that's enough
wastewater to fill Lake Okeechobee three times.
It's also the amount of fresh water that projected
growth in southeast Florida requires.


There's a further, significant problem. The
polluted water is dumped along Florida's reef
tract, of which the Florida Keys are a part. These
corals need clean, nutrient-free waters to thrive.
We know this wastewater damages coral reefs
and diverse ocean wildlife and one thing is clear
to divers, fishermen and marine biologists" These
reefs are dying.
Reef Relief, through the cooperation of citi-
zens who voted in referendum, was successful in
achieving advanced wastewater treatment and
shutting down Key West's ocean outfall. Over a
decade ago, we embraced the idea of advanced
wastewater treatment, reuse and alternative dis-
posal technologies.
Clearly, it is in Southeast Florida's best inter-
est to begin planning for new treatment and reuse
facilities to phase out all six ocean outfalls now.
This year, lawmakers in Tallahassee are hoping to
do just that. Their effort is worthy of our support.
The Senate Committee on Environmental
Preservation and Conservation approved a bill
this month that would end the dumping and man-
date wastewater reuse. Gov. Charlie Crist and
Department of Environmental Protection
Secretary Michael Sole support this legislation
and the House Environment and Natural
Resources Council is working on a similar bill.
Under the Senate bill, the utilities doing the
dumping would have to submit plans to stop
dumping by 2013, implement treatment by 2018
and eliminate ocean -ottfalls by 2025 through a
reuse program.
We applaud their efforts and look to their con-
tinued- support.

Legislators go

way out of bounds


If this year's Florida leg-
islative session were a
football game, the penalty
flags would be flying.
Talk about offsides.
The latest example of fla-
grant fouls by legislative
leaders involves whipsaw-
ing insurance regulations.
Over in the House,
Speaker Marco Rubio pre-
sides over a let-the-private-
market-work philosophy
that grabs $250
million from
Citizens Property
Insurance Corp.
reserves to help
start-up private,
for-profit insur-
ance companies.
This happened
earlier this week
at the same time
Florida's chief
financial officer,
Alex Sink, Wayne
warned of fiscal Keynotel
ruin unless the
state-run insurer
of last resort builds up big-
ger reserves.
On the Senate side,
meanwhile, cooler heads
prevail the Senate
would extend the rate
freeze for Citizens to June
2009 (it's now due to
expire in December of this
year).
The Senate also wants to
permanently eliminate the
industry practice of raising
rates first and then filing
with the state for approval.
The latter has been a
major rallying cry for Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe
(FIRM), which has sent
Heather Carruthers and
Colleen Repetto to
Tallahassee this session to
keep an eye on mischief
makers in the state Capitol.
They are concerned about
the threat of rate hikes that
loom, especially if the
House version gains trac-
tion.
During early committee


drafts, House policy mak-
ers wanted to outright grab
$250 million from Citizens
reserves to fund start-up
competitors. That idea, for-
tunately, caught some
heavy flak and a compro-
mise will require those for-
profit firms to repay
Citizens over the next 20
years.
And this barely touches
the vast differences that
emerged this
year in the way
House and
Senate leaders
approached deal-
ing with the
. * worst revenue
crisis in decades.
Bob
Butterworth, for-
mer Florida
attorney general
and now secre-
Markham tary of the
r Publisher Department of
Children and
Family Services,
told The Miami Herald's
Mary Ellen Klas that budg-
et cuts are destroying the
state's public safety net.
"In my 40 years in public
service, this is the worst
year I've even seen, the
meanest I've ever seen."
So raiding Citizens'
reserves to help for-profit
insurance companies skim
off the most lucrative
windstorm policies from
Citizens may be just the
start of even worse things
to come.
In today's Keynoter,
you'll read about school
staffing cuts being recom-
mended by School District
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo. And the county
has already begun down-
sizing staff, increasing fees
and is eyeing a gas-tax
hike.

well for those owners.
The appraisal is an estimated
value with and without bridge
access to the island off Overseas
Highway near mile marker 48.
On Dec. 3, the city closed the
bridge to all traffic including
pedestrian based on a Florida
Department of Transportation let-


ter declaring it a hazard.
According to the appraisal
done by Lee H. Waronker of
Waronker & Rosen Inc., the
island is worth a combined $3.4
million with bridge access and
$1.47 million without.
Figures up to $10 million have
been floated for DOT to repair
the dilapidated bridge, prompting
the city to order an assessment of
the island's value.
The report states the city
'-equested this valuation be pre-
pared to assist the city in the deci-
sion-making process of whether
the Boot Key Bridge should be
replaced or if it should be
removed."
It was not immediately
released due to the threat of

the city, claiming a taking, if it
fails to repair the bridge. He did
not return calls for comment
Friday and the report claims he
did not return a letter and three
phone calls from the appraiser
attempting to inspect his property.
Based on the results of the
report, several City Council
members told the Keynoter it is
unlikely the city will commit to
repair the bridge.
"All five of us are going to
have to make that determination,
but my view of it, the way it came
back it makes no sense to put $9
million .into a bridge," Mayor
Pete Worthington said.
"My position on this has been
not to spend any money on the
bridge. In my opinion, the
appraisal further supports that
position and it will be the same,"
Councilman Don Vasil said.
According to the report, Boot
Key is a 1,127.6-acre island con-
sisting predominantly of wet-
lands. Eighty acres are unplatted
and another 30 are owned by the
city in the form of 2.2 miles of
paved road.
The remaining 1,017.36 acres
are privately owned, 99 percent


of that by Barry Yampol under
three corporation names.
Nascone owns 9.57 acres and
Marathon Wireless Communica-
tions Inc. owns 1.68 acres.
The report states the vast
majority of the island is zoned
Conservation-Native Area, while
Nascone's site is designated
Mixed Use. Yampol also owns 99
percent (27.35 acres) of devel-
opable land on Boot Key, though
most of it is "scattered throughout
various 'islands' of upland, sur-
rounded by large tracts of wet-
land."
Cinque and Vasil said the city
could potentially purchase the
island and turn it into a much-
needed tourist attraction.
"We need something to attract
people and Boot Key could be a
nice eco-park. Marathon is lack-
ing attractions for tourists and
there might be a lot of possibili-
ties down there; something good
for the property owners and the
community," Cinque said.
"It would give us a world-
class tourist attraction and people
would come from far and wide"
to see it, Vasil said.

Water

use

eases

Twice-weekly
watering now
permitted
In response to improved
"regional water resource condi-
tions," the South Florida Water
Management District on Friday
modified emergency water
restrictions across most of the
agency's 16-county region,
including the Keys.
The agency now says residen-
tial landscape irrigation can be
done twi6e a instead of the previ-
ous once a week.
"It's important to note that we
are not lifting emergency restric-
-tions. Our decision to modify the
restrictions is based on the
improved conditions of our water
resources," district Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann
said.
Increased rain and more con-
servation is the reason for easing
the restrictions.
The modified mandatory
restrictions apply to all water from
traditional sources, including
water from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.
In the Keys, the irrigation
scheduled has "watering win-
dows:"
Odd street addresses may
'irrigate lawns and landscapes
Wednesday and Saturdays from
midnight to 10 a.m. and/or 4 to
11:59 p.m.
+ Even street addresses may
irrigate lawns and landscapes
Thursday and Sundays from
midnight to 10 a.m. and/or 4 to
11:59 p.m.
Hand-watering with one
hose fitted with an automatic
shut-off nozzle is allowed for 10
minutes per day for relief and to
prevent plant die-off.
Low-volume irrigation,
including the use of drip and
microjet systems that apply water
directly to plant root zones, is not
restricted but should be voluntar-
ily reduced.
Additional watering days
and times are allocated for the
establishment of new lawns and
landscapes. Go to www.sfwmd

Let the Burnett negotiating begin


Morales working
up a contract
for new manager
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Now that the Marathon City
Council has selected former Key
Colony Beach Mayor Clyde
Burnett to be the city's next man-
ager, City Attorney Jimmy
Morales is working up a contract
to be presented to the council
April 29.
Should negotiations fail,
Morales will move down the list
of candidates according to the


council's rankings.
Current Manager Mike Puto,
who resigned in February but has
stayed on until his replacement is,
in place, earns $110,113.
Tuesday, the council decided
to forgo an interview process and
approved a motion to negotiate
with Burnett. The motion passed
4-1 despite adamant objection
from both Mayor Pete
Worthington and Vice Mayor
Chris Bull, who preferred to
interview the top candidates for
the job.
Each council member submit-
ted his or her top 10 candidates
for the job to Jimmy Morales,


who tabulated the results.
"The decision is where to go
from here. There is nothing in
state law that describes any
process," Morales told the coun-
cil Tuesday.
Current Manager Mike Puto
resigned Feb. 12 pending the
city's hiring of an interim or full-
time replacement.
Burnett was the top-ranked
candidate and the first choice of
council members Mike Cinque,
Don Vasil and Marilyn Tempest.
He was Worthington's seventh-
highest ranked candidate.
Bull ranked his top five candi-
dates, of which Burnett was one,

no reason to spend dollars and

felt [Burnett] was the best candi-
date because he's well-known in

.has agreed with me about what
needs to be done with the city
moving forward."
"I felt strongly someone who
lived and worked here would be
best. It often happens you over-
look the people in your own area
betting on someone from out-
side," Tempest told the Keynoter.
Bull and Worthington were
strongly opposed to hiring a man-
ager without an interview
process.
"We have a lot of issues we
have to face. In some form or
fashion I think we need face-to-
face interviews and I won't sup-
port this motion," Bull said.
Worthington told the Keynoter
he valued managerial experience
in ranking his candidates and was
surprised to see several of his top
candidates receive little support
from other council members.
"Every one of them had man-
ager experience, that's what I was
looking hardest at," he said of his
ranking criteria. "At the end of
the day the process was flawed,
but when the vote came down I
want Clyde to know I'm going to
work with him."

Zappulla severance deal on the table


Former budget
chief would
get $140,000
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A planned hearing with the
county's Career Service Board
was canceled Thursday to allow
the Monroe County


Commission to consider a pos-
sible settlement with former
county Budget Director Sal
Zappulla.
Zappulla wants a year's
salary, payment for unused
vacation days and attorney's
fees for an overall total of
$140,000.
"Clearly, we're trying to cut
our losses in one, manner or


another," County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton said. "We want
to just move on and resolve this
and not take the chance of get-
ting a more adverse decision by
the Career Service Board."
Then-County Administrator
Tom Willi suspended Zappulla
in August after he Zappulla left
a voice mail message for anoth-
er county employee saying he
was stressed out and talking
about death. Willi fired him

after an October hearing by a
county committee headed by
then-Fire Chief Wayne Hinnant.
County policy allows
employees to challenge dis-
missal through a hearing before
the Career Service Board, com-
prising appointees of the County
Commission, Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority and Florida
Keys Mosquito Control Board.
The only county employees not
eligible for such a hearing are
the administrator and county
attorney, both of whom serve
under contract to the County
Commission.
According to Hutton, the
Career Service Board could call
for Zappulla's reinstatement to
his job.
"We have gone through
career-service cases in the past
in which the county has been
required to rehire an employ-
ee," she said.
Aside from cutting the coun-
ty's financial losses, Hutton
said the county staff leaning


toward settlement is that even if
the Career Service Board found
in the county's favor in
Zappulla's firing, he would
have the right to appeal, drag-
ging the case on even longer.
Zappulla was fired for insub-
ordination, misconduct and
unsatisfactory work perform-
ance. In the Oct. 19 memo
reporting the outcome of the
county staff hearing, Hinnant
noted that Zappulla had been
reprimanded for poor work per-
formance and that he had not
improved as a result.
"Your work performance
since the second written repri-
mand has failed to improve,"
Hinnant wrote, "and has, in
fact, worsened."
Hinnant said later in the
memo, "You have engaged in
further misconduct that calls in
to question your mental and
emotional stability, and sug-
gests that you may be a threat to
others."

Keynoter Staff

A Lee County man missed the
close of lobster by less than a
day but also was spearing
undersized crawfish near Craig
Key, law officers say.
John D. Roberts, 40, of
Lehigh Acres was charged with
several conservation violations


in the April 1 case filed by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Around noon April 1 12
hours after the eight-month lob-
ster season ended at midnight -
FWC Officers Jason Rafter and
Wade Heffner answered a call
about two divers seen carrying
spearguns diving from shore
near Craig Key. Spearfishing in
state waters is prohibited in
many areas north of Long Key.
The officers spotted a car


used by the two divers and wait-
ed for them to come out of the
water. When they did, Roberts
was found to be in possession of
14 wrung tails, several of which
showed evidence of having been
speared.
Roberts was cited for posses-
sion of lobster in closed season,
speared lobster and undersized
lobster.
Roberts' companion, his 15-
year-old son, was not in posses-
sion of lobster. But he was cited
for failure to use a dive flag.

OSHA to return to airport


By ALYSON CREAN.
. acrean@keynoter.com

Investigation continues this
week to find the cause of a col-
lapse at Key West International
Airport that killed one man and
injured another Tuesday.
The Occupational Safety and
Health Administration "has left
the site until next week," County
Engineer David Koppel said
early Friday. "We're anticipating
to start removal of the ramp next
week."
OSHA officials did not return
calls for comment.
Carlos Umberto Fuentes
Seanz, 39, was killed when a
temporary wooden framework
gave way, crushing him under
fresh concrete. Forty-two year
old Keith White was injured in
the incident and admitted to
Lower Keys Medical Center.
Both men worked for Apex
Construction.
Koppel said removal of the
collapsed ramp will be a critical
part of the investigation.
"We are looking closely at the
shoring to see exactly what hap-
pened," he said. "We'll try and
recreate how the system was


assembled. We'll also be looking
at the condition of the ground
where the shoring was supported
to see if there was any effect from
the weather and to see if the soil
had been disturbed or settled."
Koppel said it's unlikely the
accident was the result of short-
cuts on the part of the construc-,
tion company.
"The company has been doing
first-class work from the start,"
he said of the Morganti Group
and the contractors that work
under it. "There's no question of
shoddy work."
The accident occurred while a
concrete ramp up to the new
McCoy Terminal Complex was
being poured. Temporary scaf-
folding had been set up to form a
bed for the concrete. Once it
hardened, the wood structure
would have been removed.
Carla Brown Lucas, spokes-
woman for Morganti, said con-
struction is continuing every-
where except on the ramp.
"Work is still able to go on
everywhere except where the
accident occurred," she said.
"The delay will be minimal,"


Koppel said. "We were hoping
the terminal would be ready June
4, and now it looks like it will be
open at the end of June."
No information was available
Friday on funeral arrangements


for Seanz, who was from
:Guatemala.
The county has bonded $30
million for the new terminal and
parking garage.


MMC dealt blow


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com


A Monroe County Circuit
Court judge ruled Thursday that
the Marine Mammal Conser-
vancy has violated its lease on its
Key Largo rehabilitation facility.
"The tenant has now been in
possession of the property since
January of 2003 and has never
paid any portion of the $20,000
per year rent," Judge Luis Garcia
wrote, "and all the improvements
offered in lieu of rent are
presently in violation of the
Monroe County Code."
Garcia withheld "an immedi-
ate writ of possession" to
landowner JPB Properties pend-
ing a hearing on other issues,
including "the safe transfer of


any animals on the property."
An attorney for the Marine
Mammal Conservancy could not
be reached at press time.
The MMC had filed suit
against JPB Properties, charging
the owners refused to honor a
lease agreement to sell the
bayfront property near mile
marker 102.5 to the nonprofit
group for $458,000 for use as
marine-mammal rehabilitation
site.
JPB Properties, headed by
John Powers, filed for a summa-
ry judgment to quash the suit,
charging that MMC had previ-
ously violated its obligations
under the lease.
Among those were allowing
construction that failed to hold
active county.permits. The MMC
was required to pay rent or build
permanent improvements.
At a March 13 hearing, Garcia
ordered MMC President Robert
Lingenfelser to produce valid
permits for construction at the
site.
Lingenfelser answered with a
lengthy letter charging that per-
mits had been held up by
Monroe County Building
Department delays, and ques-
tions over whether the landown-
er had revoked MMC's power of
attorney to obtain permits.
Garcia wrote the main permit
"was issued in Febirary of 2002.
Since then, the permit has had a
long tortuous history. The permit
has previously expired on two
separate occasions and its pres-
ent status is expired. The new
structures on the property have
not received a certificate of occu-
pancy and are in violation of
Monroe County Code."
Code-enforcement fines
assessed against the property
now exceed $100,000, Garcia
noted in declaring MMC in
default of lease terms.
Conservancy volunteers have
been active in several efforts to
rehabilitate marine mammals
rescued from strandings.

Problem planes
aren't flown
to Key West
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

If you're looking to fly
American Airlines out of Key
West soon, don't let the nation-
al media reports scare you.
The thousands of American
Airlines flights canceled this
week won't have an effect on
Key West International Airport
flights to Miami, according to
Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton.
The cancellations stem from
company inspections of wiring
bundles in the wheel wells of
MD-80 jetliners "high-tail,
twin-engine aircrafts" Horton
said.
Horton spoke with manage-
ment at American Eagle
Airlines, which is partnered'
with Americdn Airlines, and
said the Key West airport does-
n't accommodate MD-80s.
"American Eagle is not
affected by the American MD-
80 inspection situation,"
Horton said. "Our hub is
Miami, and there has not been
an MD-80 flown by American
[to Key West] for the last two
years."
Planes flying to and from
Miami won't be canceled as a
result of the wires' inspection,
he said.
The Miami Herald reported
Friday that American Airlines
does fly MD-80s at the Miami
International Airport, and that
any effect the cancellations
have on South Florida will be
minimal. But across the coun-
try, nearly 3,100 flights- were
canceled.
Horton said American Eagle
has been flying out of Key West
"at least for the 20 years I've
been associated with the air-
port."
The company uses ATR-72
airliners, which seat 66 passen-
gers, Horton said. Executive
Airline pilots fly the aircraft.

Taxpayers in some neighborhoods get a delay


No sewer
assessment
for all areas
By RYAN McCARTHY.
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
voted unanimously Tuesday
not to assess all seven service
areas of the city's sewer proj-
ect on next year's tax roll.
The council approved an
agreement Feb. 12 to assess
residential and commercial
customers in area four
(Sombrero Beach Road), with
the option to expand the


assessments to area six (Coco
Plum Drive) and/or existing
Little Venice customers.
In light of a March 11 reso-
lution affirming the city's
commitment to complete a
citywide sewer system,
Assistant Finance Director
Cindy Lawson suggested the
council consider the possible
long-term savings assessing
all areas would represent.
Lawson's staff report sug-
gests a significant amount of
assessment prepayments,
which "will provide financing
flexibility and cost savings."
The report states, "Per

and bone loss. Guilty!

of tfe keys


council direction to date, the
system development charge
assessments will be the same
for all customers regardless of
area. As a result, the amount
paid by each ... customer will
not be affected by a decision
on when to assess; the prepay-
ment amount will be the same
no matter which year it is
assessed."
Lawson also states cus-
tomers choosing to repay the
assessment over 20 years will
pay the same regardless of the
start date of the payment.
The council previously
decided to assess only areas
where the system will be
online within 12 months. It
voted Tuesday to maintain that
policy, although the legal
requirement is for service to
be provided within three to
five years.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
the dollars saved are not rea-


son enough for the council to
reverse its decision.
"We made this decision to
assess based on them having
service within a year. We did it
knowing we were going to
lose some money, but with the
situation our town is in right
now it would be the most fair
thing to do,". Bull said. "We
have to look near and long-
term, so I'm OK with keeping
status quo."
"I didn't see any reason try-
ing to save a couple pennies
interest, the community would
think we were. rushing ahead.
We're not spending any
money on the other five areas;
I didn't think it was right ... to
start assessing," Councilman
Mike Cinque said.
"We're in a serious eco-
nomic time; to try and create a
kitty for the city without them
getting service for two years
isn't fair," Councilman Don


Vasil said.
Residents Richie Moretti,
John Whalton and Morgan Hill
all spoke in opposition of
assessments beginning in all
areas..
Hill told the council she
feels "throwing a curve is bad
in one of the worst economies
we've had here in 30 years,"
which Vasil said he agreed
with.
"You can't change the rules
in the middle of the game. It's
an appropriate approach and
we need to stick with it," he
said.

State panel OKs $200 million for bonds


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Keys are a step closer to
receiving $200 million from the
state for sewer installation.
The House Environmental and
Natural Resources Council on
Wednesday approved an amend-
ment to the state's Everglades
restoration funding bill that
would parcel out $50 million
annually over the next four years
for Keys wastewater projects.
State representatives Stan

"I am very happy that we

mapping system when it con-
venes Wednesday.
The commission meets start-
ing at 9 a.m. at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West
in a session televised live on
Comcast Cable Channel 76 and
on the Web.
The so-called tier system"
divides undeveloped land in the
Keys into three tiers, Tier 1 being
the most environmentally sensi-
tive to Tier 3 being the most
desirable for development.
The system is designed to
deter development in parts of the
.Keys with native vegetation and
sensitive habitat for endangered
species.
Instead of acquiring points
toward a building permit under
the current rate-of-growth ordi-
nance, property owners would
find their holdings ranked in one
of the three tiers.
The 12 parcels up for consid-
eration were erroneously classi-
fied as Tier 1, and staff is recom-
mending they be moved to Tier 3.
When the maps supporting the
tier system were unveiled in
2006, there were 148 parcels that
had been put into the wrong cate-


gory. According to Growth
Management Director Drew
Trivette, this week's changes are
the first to be tackled by the com-
mission.
Also on tap Wednesday:
Creation of an affordable
housing advisory committee to
comply with state laws. The
county's affordable housing
coordinator, Lisa Tennyson, says
it's likely most of the members of
the existing affordable housing
task force will be able to serve on
the new advisory committee.
Approval of contracts with
seven marine-debris removal
companies. The commission
approved contracts with six other
companies in March. The three-
year contracts will allow the
county to engage whichever
company is appropriate for non-
hurricane related debris removal.
Approval to pay the
$258,000 annual premium for
windstorm insurance on county-
owned structures.
Consideration of creating a
so-called green team, appointed
by the commissioners. The group
would come up with recommen-
dations to make the county's
building codes more environ-
mentally sound.
+ A closed session to discuss
updates in the collective bargain-
ing process with the Professional
Firefighters of Monroe union.


wastewater improvements,
improvements that are state-man-
dated. The state needs to come up
with perpetual funds for this."
The bond would be repaid by
the state, Monroe County Mayor
Sonny McCoy said.
"Rep. Mayfield has been very
supportive and helpful," he said.
"We've been up there working on
this for some time."
Though the amendment
passed the committee unani-
mously, it still has a way to go
before it's cash in hand. There is
a parallel bill in the Senate, but
both await approval by the full
Legislature before it would go to
Gov. Charlie Crist, who must sign
off before the Keys get any
money.
"There's a very good chance it
will go all the way," McCoy said.
"You couldn't find anything more
encouraging than this [House]
committee's approval."

The Keys have been looking
for ways to raise more than $500
million necessary to finish sewer-
ing the Keys. The state has man-
dated sewers be installed
throughout the islands by 2010 to
improve water quality.
Roman Gastesi, the newly
hired county administrator who
will likely begin work in mid-
May, said he intends to put a lot
of effort into getting federal fund-
ing for Keys sewers.
In 2000, Congress earmarked
$100 million in sewer funds for
the Keys. Very little of that has
been appropriated, and Gastesi
thinks it's a matter of working
more closely with the agency that

"The Corps people in

things, and there hasn't been a
good dialogue," Gastesi said.
"There's $100 million sitting in
the Corps' budget and I think it
can absolutely be tapped."
Saunders, too, is pushing hard
to see federal funding as well as
the state funding that could be
close to materializing.
"The Keys are an Area. of

Johnson said. "That should mean
that funding for preserving them
is also of critical concern."

Pressure appears building


By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com

Some staff members of
Florida Keys Community
College say they fear termination,
and others are reportedly disgrun-
tled and threatening to leave the
college.
In a series of anonymous e-
mails and postings that circulate
on campus and off, the rumors
keep spreading.
Computer science professor
Samer Hijazi began writing his
resignation letter this week but
declined to discuss his reasons
for possibly leaving until after
meeting with the "administration
to clarify some issues," he wrote
in an e-mail.
"I respect Sam as a teacher,
and his students adore him," pho-
tography professor Lynne
Bentley-Kemp said. "It's a loss to
the college." -

Landesberg-Boyle's response:
"We have terrific faculty here,
and people are really committed
to this institution. We have some
folks that, through attrition, will
leave. But those numbers are
below last year's numbers. We're
very sad when people leave."
Meanwhile, Landesberg-
Boyle continues to implement
more changes and initiatives she
says are appreciated by some pro-
fessors and rejected by others.
Among complaints making the
rounds: Management is not keep-
ing faculty and staff informed.
This week, college spokes-
woman Lydia Estenoz sent out a
press release saying the school
recently received 46 applications
from "highly qualified" educa-
tors.
Among the applicants touted
in the public statement are a the-
ater-arts director from Rome and
a renowned marine biologist
affiliated with James-Cooke
University.
The press release also boasts
of an "Educator Preparatory
Institute, a new Certified Nursing
Assistant (CNA) program, a
Performing and Visual Arts
degree" and other new projects.
Landesberg-Boyle took her
post in June when then-President
Bill Seeker retired after 28 years.
"I have purposely taken the
route of staying out of the loop,"
Seeker said. "I have very few
firsthand statements from people,
but I've heard rumors" of faculty
unrest, he added.
"As far as the college is con-
cerned, I'm not a Monday-momrn-
ing quarterback," Seeker said.


"I'll take the high road."
The Faculty Senate recently
asked professors to fill out "wish
lists" anonymous letters prais-
ing or criticizing college manage-
ment. Fifteen professors wrote
letters, many implying they are
unhappy with current circum-
stances.
One writer said he or she did-
n't want "to be forced to leave my
students, friends, FKCC and the
educational profession I truly
love and because my philosophy
is not in compliance with the
present administration."
Another writer states: "I don't
want to be involved in what
appears to be a divide and con-
quer mentality of the new admin-
istration. I don't want to feel anx-
ious and sick from stress and
pressure from the administration
when I come to my job."
A letter writer also complains
about Provost Charles Shaffer.
"Jill was hired to bring change
and there are some who do not
welcome change," Shaffer
responded.
"I tell you the same people
who were belly-aching now are
the same ones who were com-
plaining under Doc [Seeker].
That college was dying; change
was needed," said Gary Martin,
vice provost.
Faculty interviewed, who did-
n't want to be named, admitted
that Landesberg-Boyle has strong
ambitions and many ideas, but
also feel faculty is viewed less
like human beings and more like
"classroom seat fillers," or assets.
One letter spells it out: "I want
to be viewed as an educator, not a
recruiter."

DOT: Blame DCA for U.S. 1 'fifth lane'


Agency says
road project
is a mandate
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A state road engineer said the
future of a hurricane-evacuation
lane planned along U.S. 1
through Key Largo lies with the
state Department of Community
Affairs.
"If the DCA tells us it is not
required, it will disappear," Harold
Desdunes, design engineer for the
Department of Transportation's s
Miami-area district, told the
Tavemier Community Association
Thursday.
Critics of the project said they
would take their concerns over
the project to DCA.
"We want an audience with


people who are in a decision-mak-
ing capacity," association board
member Richard Barreto said.
About two dozen people
attended the Thursday meeting in
Tavernier to hear a DOT contin-,
gent outline the planned resurfac-
ing for U.S. 1, scheduled to begin
next year. It encompasses from
mile marker 92 to 106.
The most controversial ele-
ment of the plan calls for widen-
ing the outside shoulder of the
northbound lanes to 10 feet.
While the extra width from
the DOT's standard 5-foot shoul-
der has safety advantages,
Desdunes acknowledged its abil-
ity to serve as an emergency hur-
ricane-evacuation lane is the
"primary" reason it was drawn
into plans.
Adding areas where traffic
can use three northbound lanes
during an evacuation decreases


time needed to evacuate the
Keys, according to DCA.
"It will be for emergency use
only," DOT project manager Joe
Gomez said. "We know it's been
called a fifth lane but it's not. A
lane is completely different."
The shoulder will be designed
with a much shallower base and a
steeper grade of 6 percent,
according to DOT. Shoulders are
designed to carry only 3 percent
of the load of a regular road,
Desdunes said.
That failed to convince skep-
tics, who contend a wide pave-
ment will only lead to more ille-
gal passing on the shoulder dur-
ing regular periods of heavy traf-
fic.
"You're creating a whole new
problem, creating a place where
people will speed right through,"
said Ron Miller, president of the
Island of Key Largo Federation
of Homeowner Associations.
Resident and longtime DOT


critic John Hammerstrom
showed a slide program that con-
cludes the wider shoulder serves
no purpose since U.S. 1 will not

be widened in Islamorada,
Florida City and parts of Key
Largo.


"You've still got places where
three lanes will merge into two
lanes," Hammerstrom said. "It
doesn't do anything for evacua-
tion."
Hammerstrom also argues that
evacuation studies that resulted
in the extra-lane plan are funda-
mentally flawed.
Jerry Wilkinson, president of
the Tavemier group, said DOT
engineers designed the road
based on specifications they
received from DCA and DOT in
Tallahassee. "We need to get to
the right people," Wilkinson said.
DOT engineers said the resur-
facing was planned to correct
poor roadway conditions on Key
Largo, and that shoulders typical-
ly are brought to state standards
during major projects.
Adding the extra width to the
northbound shoulder is relatively
inexpensive,. Desdunes said,
adding about $1.5 million to the
overall $24-million project.

Hill is new village mayor


By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com


For the first time in
Islamorada's 10-year history as
an incorporated municipality, a
female elected official has been
appointed to the Village
Council's top job.
Thursday, the council voted
unanimously to appoint
Councilwoman Cathi Hill as
mayor and Councilman Don
Achenberg as vice mayor.
Hill, who previously was vice
mayor, replaced Councilman
Dave Boerner as mayor.
"It's an honor," Hill told The
Reporter Friday, "I have to tell
you that I'm thrilled that the
team the community and that the
village put together two years
ago has essentially remained in
tact."
Hill said she, Achenberg,
Boerner and Councilman
Michael Reckwerdt, who were
all re-elected to the council in
either March or April, "have got-
ten to a place that we work real-
ly well together."
"Especially with the addition
of [newly appointed Village
Manager Kenneth Fields], I


think we're all looking forward
to a really good couple of years.
It's my hope to make the village
even more efficient," Hill said.
Fields was hired as
Islamorada's manager on March
13, replacing Gary Word.
"I have lot of experience
working under a female mayor,"
he said, "so congratulations to"


her.
Several other village officials
and members of the public also
congratulated Hill Thursday.
"Our first female mayor,
there goes our glass ceiling,"
said former Mayor Bob Johnson,
who noted that Thursday's meet-
ing was also historic because it
was the first meeting in the sec-
ond decade of Islamorada's exis-
tence.


Dockage rates to rise

A new series of informal

Islamorada officials say.
Ken Fields, Islamorada's
manager since March 13,

series and held the first infor-
mal workshop Wednesday.

input on certain items but the
council cannot set policy or
adopt ordinances. Fields said
the setup allows a "chance for
the staff and council to interact
in an informal manner," which
will "maximize staff productiv-
ity."
Workshops are open to the
public, but do not allow resi-
dents a chance to comment.
Among the items discussed
Wednesday were dockage rates
at Plantation Key Yacht Harbor
at Founders Park.
Fields told the council that
because the majority of the
marina is operating under a rate
structure that hasn't changed in
years, the village is losing
money "on a daily basis."
The council directed Fields
to start charging an average of
$25 per foot of vessel length
monthly for dockage at the
marina, a rate that can be
adjusted depending on the
depth and width of a particular
boat slip.
With the exception of the
marina's bulkhead dock, which
already charges the $25 rate,
most slips are now being rented
for $14 per foot per month.
The new rate, Fields said,
will be implemented only tem-
porarily until a full-time marina
director is hired and a compre-
hensive marina business plan
can be developed.
Originally, Parks and
Recreation Director John Sutter
was charged with developing
the business plan but in
December, the council rejected
his plan to charge a flat rate of
$24 per foot per month.
Council members later
praised Sutter for his progress
on a second plan they said was
"more dynamic."

Carle's stories go live in the Keys


Kids' author
comes Sunday
to Coral Shores
Eric Carle, one of the
world's best-selling and
most influential creators
of children's picture books, is
scheduled to attend an Upper
Keys production of three of his
stories this Sunday.
The production, performed
by the Mermaid Theatre of
Nova Scotia, will use blacklight
puppetry, a technique in which
performers don head-to-toe
black outfits and manipulate
puppets painted in fluorescent
colors under the glow of black
lights. The troupe will perform
Carle's "The Very Hungry
Caterpillar," "Little Cloud" and
"The Mixed-Up Chameleon."
Carle will sign books and
posters at the event, which is

being sponsored by Islamorada
Community Entertainment, a
nonprofit organization dedicated
to bringing entertainment and
cultural events to the Upper
Keys and providing musical and
art scholarships to local stu-
dents.
"This is a rare honor for us
to present Eric Carle and the-
Mermaid Theatre to the children
of the Keys," said Ron Levy,
board member of ICE. "Eric's


stories are so delightful and
entertaining that we often fail to
notice that they also teach chil-
dren about the wonders of the
natural world around them.
They're a perfect complement
to and reminder of the beautiful
natural environment we live in,
the Keys."
"The Very Hungry
Caterpillar" is a story of the
metamorphosis into a beautiful
butterfly; "Little Cloud" is the


fanciful account of a cloud's
travels through the sky; and in
"The Mixed-Up Chameleon,"
the chameleon his own unique
nature.
The show will be held
Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Coral
Shores Center for the
Performing Arts, mile marker

Admission, by cash or check, is
$15 for adults, $10 for youths
and free for kids 3 and under.

Experimental Ganesha closes tonight


Performance
combines dance
and athleticism
The Hindu elephant deity
rides a rodent that repre-
sents the subjugated
demon of vanity and imperti-
nence.
Ganesha is revered as the
Lord of Beginnings and Lord of
Obstacles and a patron of the
arts and
sciences.
He is the
M son of
p. Shiva and
-Parvati
i 4n Ke and has the
head of an
elephant
with a
curved
trunk and
big ears
Judi Bradford above the
pot-bellied
body of a human being. He has
many symbolic elements,
including a conch. He is often
portrayed dancing.
The Waterfront Playhouse
in Key West has taken the leap
with the Ganesha Dance
Theatre this month. Dance is a
specialty niche in the theater
world and sandwiching this
troupe in between "Reefer
Madness" and "Naked Boys
Singing," which plays (May 21
to June 14, seems like madness.
Now that I look at the lineup,
however, perhaps it is a perfect
segue.
Its "Opening The Way" pro-
gram, which opened April 3 and
closes tonight, features choreog-
rapher/dancers Kyla Piscopink,
Andre Harper, Denis Hyland,
Mary Kay Lee and Leigh
Pujado in contemporary dance
pieces interspersed with videos.
The finale is choreographed by
Angela Harriell.
Original choreography
varies greatly among creators
and this was no exception.
Modern dance, more than any
other expression, lingers in the
realm of experimental, and this,
too, is no exception.
The pieces cover a range of
skills and subjects, from ballet
to a strange interpretation of
Japanese monster and kung fu
flicks.
The most enchanting
sequences are those by Hyland,

In a second dance with Lee,
the two venture into ballet with
Lee en pointe, calling on their
ballet backgrounds for the con-
temporary themed work.
"The Last Farewell" has an
emotional theme with classical
styling by Kenneth MacMillan,
restaged by Lee. Danced by
Harper and Lee, it includes nice
lifts, en pointe duet moves and
good use of the space on stage.
Harper's performances are
athletic and his airborne steps
are spring-loaded.
Some of the music includes
lyrics that overshadow the
dance. "The Storm Large"
accompaniment for Pixie comes
to mind.
The 13 short dances alternate
with film clips of the rehearsals.
The films have a rhythmic char-


acter generated by the repeti-
tions reflected in the mirrors. As
the evening progresses, the
films become more abstract,
devolving only once into a pitch
for support.
Some of the clips appear on
YouTube (search for videos
from kylathasmila). If you
search for Ganesha dance, you.
will find everything from this
contemporary dance troupe to
Indian traditions. One fascinat-
ing sidebar to this search is.
Ganesha animation by kadkol
about the Ganesh festival.
The dance program closes
this evening. Call the
Waterfront Playhouse at 294-
5015 or log onto www.water
frontplayhouse.com for
reservations. Tickets are $30.

'Picture Show'

W IAI.. 1%* 0000;A* 1 returns, sort of


New project
features many
short films
The past few months, a
handful of local film
and video makers have
been quietly shooting, editing
and producing new short
films in response to the 1978
local classic "The Key West
Picture Show."
Now 30 years old, the orig-
inal film by B.J. Martin
serves as an inspiring
overview of the island's past
and a humorous look at the
unique cultural aspects of the
Southernmost City.
And now Tuesday at the
Tropic Cinema, 416 Eaton St.,
"The Return of the Key West
Picture Show" debuts.
Participants were given no
restrictions other than to cre-
ate films of between five and
15 minutes that reveal some-
thing about modern Key West.
"The original film captured
colorful local characters,
quirky historical features and
real commentary from real
people," said Elena Devers,
project coordinator at The
Studios of .Key West, which
oversaw "The Return" with
The Key West Film Society,
which operates the Tropic.
"And we wanted to find a way
to do that again, in the here
and now, and use the art of the
short video to leave something
behind for posterity."
The project gives rever-
ence to the original film,
which told about, among
other things, live conchs,
tropical sex drives, struggling
artists, wrecker families,
Cuban bakeries, baseball,
fighting and the early days of
the sunset celebration.
"I especially like the fact
that participants considered
any and all approaches in
terms of style, content and
format with no restrictions,"
Martin said of "The Return".
"After all, eclecticism is a
hallmark of island life."
Quincy Perkins spent near-
ly four months creating his
four-minute stop-motion
piece, "The Lightness of


Mario," which he calls the
first animated short film to
capture Key West.
Videographer Marcela
Morgan, upon learning of the
project, decided to edit her
long-form film, "Key West:
When Paradise Was Ours,"
down to a seven-minute short.
Thanks to Morgan's camera,
viewers might get a new word
or two from Coffee Butler,
Lou Pineda, Anna Weekley,
Buddy Chavez, Papo Quesada
and other long-time Conchs.
Filmmakers Karen Leonard
and her son Jonathan Meyers
took a different path. Their
new film, "Latitude 24
Longitude Paradise," is a
five-minute narrative explo-
ration of a quintessential
tourist's odyssey in Key West,
set to original music by Larry
Smith with vocals by
Kathleen Peace.
Mare Contrare's 15-minute
contribution is called "Step
Into Paradise" and features
Sid Goldman, Warren
Benjamin and Nic
Pontecorva. Her short is a
study of filmmaker Stan
Brackage, in which she tries
to incorporate the subtext of
how we get to Paradise,
namely, places like the island
at the end of the road.
Mike Marrero and David
Sloan also began with a narra-
tive idea, based around a fic-
titious locally themed game
show. Their film touches on
real estate development and
the hospitality industry before
ending up in Key West's
often-neglected neighbor. The
15-minute short is called "The
Stock Island Picture Show."
"This project took me to
places I couldn't even imag-
ine," Sloan says, "and not all
of them were pretty."
Tuesday's "The Return of
the Key West Picture Show"
starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are
$25 and can be purchased at
the Tropic or The Studios of
Key West, 600 White St.
Special guest at the one-
night-only event will be
Martin, now based in New
Smyrna,

Get a taste


of Key West


City's finest
restaurants
offer delights
Fr decades, Key West has
been renowned for the cre-
ativity of its artists, and
culinary artists rank high among
them.
From 6 to 9 p.m. April 21,
the island city's top chefs are to
display their creative cuisine in a
palate-pleasing feast called Taste
of Key West.
Now in its 13th year, the event
is to feature dozens of local
restaurants and caterers, as well as
fine wines from around the world,
in a one-night open-air benefit for
Key West's AIDS Help.
The event is scheduled to
take place on the island city's
Truman Waterfront, located at
the end of Southard Street over-
looking historic Key West
Harbor.
More than 50 local restau-
rants plan to offer dishes ranging
from casual fare to gourmet spe-
cialties, including Caribbean-
influenced cuisine, fresh-off-the-
boat local seafood and decadent
desserts. Attendees can choose
wines from approximately 100
wineries and vineyards, provided
by Republic National
Distributing Co., to complement
the "tastes."


Admission to the Taste of
Key West is free. Those attend-
ing can purchase food and wine
tickets for $1 apiece and com-
memorative wineglasses for $6
each prior to tasting the featured
dishes and vintages. Tickets are
then exchanged for beverages
and "tastes" that typically cost
between three and eight tickets
each.
Tickets and wineglasses can
be purchased starting at 5 p.m.,
and the event gates open
promptly at 6 p.m. Abundant
free parking is to be available at
the Truman Waterfront.
In addition, free shuttle serv-
ice between selected Key West
locations and the Truman
Waterfront is to be provided by
Old Town Trolley. Trolleys are
scheduled at approximately half-
hour intervals throughout the
evening, with service beginning
at 5:30 p.m. at the Pier House
Resort & Caribbean Spa, 1
Duval St. Other stops are the
Westin Key West Resort &
Marina, 245 Front St.: the
Crowne Plaza La Concha, 430
Duval St.; the comer of

Reynolds St.
Plans call for the last trolley
to leave the Truman Waterfront
at 9 p.m.


MORRIS SURFS IN: The Danny Morris Band, which makes the Keys part of its annual musical tour
around the country, plays from 7 p.m. to midnight tonight at the Schooner Wharf Bar, 202 William
St. at the historic waterfront. Morris synthesizes surf and blues and has performed with national
acts such as John Lee Hooker, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Ben E. King, Mick Fleetwood and others.

'Sylvia' closes
its run tonight

This is the final night for
"Sylvia" at the Red Barn
Theatre in Key West.
The Broadway hit, first
staged at the Red Barn in 1997,
returns with all its biting wit
directed by Joy Hawkins and

Marjorie Paul Shook, Mimi
McDonald and Richard Grusin.
Bruce Moore joins the company
playing three characters as they
follow a Central Park mutt
named Sylvia from the mean
streets to a chic uptown brown-
stone, where the fun and games
begin.
It's a funny commentary on


mid-life and the role pets play in
our lives.
Tickets are $30. They can be
purchased at the box office at
319 Duval St. (rear) or by call-
ing 296-9911.

Lennon's art spotlights his personal side


'In My Life'
back in Keys
this weekend
By LARRY KAHN
Ikahn@keynoter.com


The images are simple and
whimsical, remarkably clear
with a touch of humor.
There's "Pecking Order,"
illustrating the pecking order, in
size, from largest to smallest
among three birds in a grassy
meadow.
There's "Git Along Little
Dowgie," showing an 1800s
horse wagon being pulled under
the hot desert sun by, yes, a little
doggie.
These help comprise some of
Yoko One's favorite pieces of art
created by her late husband John
Lennon, gunned down in 1980 in
New York City.
They're part of the "Real
Love" series the former Beatle
drew for and with their son Sean
at the Dakota, their home, in the
years after Sean was born in
October 1975 and up to
Lennon's death.
"The thing is, the [relation-
ship] between John and Sean cre-
ated all the stories. That [collec-
tion] is really very special to me.
You know, the animals," she says.
Asked her favorite, she can't .
answer.-
"That's a difficult question. I
always handpick everything and
so when I handpick them, I'm
always liking them very much. I
don't really have a favorite. I
really love them all, actually."
When she says handpicking,
that means for the traveling art
exhibits of Lennon's works.
Today and Sunday, the show
"In My Life" stops in Key West.
It's the second consecutive year
his art everything from the
"Real Love" collection to art
from earlier periods to song
lyrics is coming to the
Southernmost City. That's rare
- Lennon shows rarely visit the
same city two years straight.
But Ono says Key West's rep-
utation for art all kinds -
speaks volumes, and that's why
Year No. 2.
"Key West is very special,"
she says. "We have a special

Conch Days start next week


Events mark
independence
of our islands
The 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


from April 18 through 27 in Key
West.
The Conch Republic
- Independence 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 organ-
izations.
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 Keys so agents could
search cars for drugs and illegal
aliens. It virtually halted traffic
on the only road into and out of
the Keys, angering residents and
threatening the fledgling tourism
industry.
Realizing the Keys were
being treated as a foreign coun-
try, local officials protested by
staging the secession. After pro-
claiming 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.
Highlights of the 2008 cele-
bration 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, present-
ed by the Bourbon Street
Complex, is scheduled for April
19 in the 700 block of Duval
Street. 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 view-
ing. Beginning at 2 p.m., racers
in staggeringly high stilettos or
oversized platform sandals pro-
ceed through time trials and
elimination heats, attempting to
avoid crashes and broken heels
to triumph 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
spectators.

Prepare for battle
Other festival highlights
include the World's Longest
Parade, also to take place on
Duval Street. Named because it
begins at the Atlantic Ocean and
proceeds to the Gulf of Mexico,
the exuberant parade is to step
off around 7 p.m. April 24. The
procession typically features
impromptu floats, pedicabs,
local and visiting firefighters,
musicians and colorfully painted
"conch cruiser" cars and bicy-
cles.
The action is to move from
land to the waters of Key West
Harbor at 7 p.m. April 25, as sea
dogs, sailors and wenches gather
for a sea battle featuring tall
ships and maritime mayhem.
Sponsored in part by the repub-
lic's flagship schooner Wolf, the
good-spirited battle pits the
Conch Republic Navy against
the reviled federal forces.
Warfare is characterized by
the roar of cannons as combat-
ants pelt each other with flying
conch fritters, ripe tomatoes,


stale Cuban bread and similar
ammunition.
Landlubbers can witness the
fracas from shoreside viewing
parties at Ocean Key Resort and
Spa, 0 Duval St., and the Westin
Resort & Marina, 245 Front St.
At 2 p.m. April 26, the Conch
Republic celebration's oldest
event is scheduled, the annual
Conch Republic Red Ribbon
Bed Race presented by Fairvilla
Megastore.
Colorfully decorated and
"wheeled beds, some carrying
"undercover" agents or passen-
gers three sheets to the wind, are
propelled down Duval Street by
runners during this madcap
excuse for a slumber party.
While the race might engender
strange bedfellows, it also has a
serious purpose of benefiting
Key West's AIDS Help Inc.
Other featured events during
the 2008 Conch Republic
Independence Celebration
include a fiddling contest and a
bluesy music festival at the
Green Parrot Bar, 601
Whitehead St., a sailing race to
the reef that recalls the Keys'
early wrecking industry, the
election of the Conch Republic
royal family and a pirates ball
and pig roast at the Schooner.
Wharf Bar, 202 William St.
The celebration is scheduled
to conclude with a stargazer
cruise at 9 p.m. April 27 aboard
the Liberty Clipper.

Republic events, visit www

Bishop Daniel Deng-Bul prepares to lead parishioners on a procession in Sudan. Deng-Bul inspired Rev. Debra Andrew-

On a mission

Keys parishioners on the way to Sudan


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Rev. Debra Andrew-
Maconaughey never thought she
would be a priest, let alone make
mission trips to war-torn African
nations.
That all changed when she
got acquainted with Bishop
Daniel Deng-Bul, a member of
the Dinka tribe in Sudan training
at her Virginia parish.
Maconaughey recalls a casual
conversation.with Deng-Bul she
says changed her life.
"He started talking about the
area of Khartoum. He said, 'We
are burying our children in the
sand so they don't have to be
cold at night.' He would go days
without eating so his children
could have food," she said. "I've
always helped out with different
things, but to hear that word for
word, something clicked in me.
I'll never forget it; it's why I


became a priest."
Maconaughey has been pas-
tor at St. Columba Episcopal
Church in Marathon for a year.
Fifteen years after meeting
Deng-Bul, she's set to make her
second trip to Africa.
Maconaughey be leading a
six-person Keys contingent on a
19-day journey to the small river
town of Malakal in the White
Nile region of Southern Sudan.

Maconaughey says the group

house, as well as "a rural med-

partnership for a clean-water
project." They'll bring glasses,
medicine and even a computer
for their host bishop.

Sudan is in the midst of

and fighting continues despite a

Phillip Young, two boys'

won gold medals as the Key
West High School track team
made a strong showing
Thursday at the District 16-2A
meet at Belen Jesuit in Miami.
Fifteen Conch boys and five
girls qualified for the regional
meet that will be Friday at
Belen. An athlete had to finish in
the top four of an event to
advance.
"I was pleased to have 15
advance, especially since some
of them have never been to the
regionals," coach Dave Perkins


said.
Young, a sophomore, won the
triple jump with an effort of 43
feet, 6 inches and broke his
school record in the 300 hurdles
with a time of 39.72, which was
good for second place. He was
also on the winning 4x100 and
4x400 relay teams.
In the 4x100, the team of
Young, Moses Sampson, Marion
Briones and Michael Sohi was
first with a time of 44.19. The
4x400 team of Young, Shea
Reger, Marlon Briones and
Andres Garcia won in 3:29.12.
Menez, a junior, was first in --
the 100-meter dash with a time

thighbone (femoral head) meets a concave portion of the pelvis
(the acetabulum).

Joint replacement is one of the most common and successful

Alfonso's blast lifts Conchs


And Ratcliff
is peaking at
the right time
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Held to two runs in six
innings by a diminutive left-
hander, the Key West High
School baseball team finally
broke through with a three-run
homer by Raiko Alfonso in the
top of the seventh-and defeated
Reagan, 5-2, in a District 16-4A
game Wednesday afternoon in
' Hialeah.
The victory improved the
Conchs to 11-12 overall and 4-5
in the district. Reagan dropped
to 2-16 and 1-8.
Yoan Martinez, barely 5 feet
tall but with a good fastball,
entered the seventh with eight
,strikeouts and trailing only 2-1,
but then he faltered.
After Andrew Rodriguez
walked to lead off the inning,
Frankie Ratcliff singled and
Alfonso sent a pitch over the
left-field fence.
Alfonso was 3-for-3 and


drove in four .runs, a perform-
ance that bodes well for the
Conchs, who will be the host
team for the district tournament
that begins April 21.
"He knows his career is get-
ting down to the wire and he
doesn't want it to end,'" coach
Miguel Menendez said of the
four-year starter at shortstop.
"He has the ability to put this
team on his back and be the dif-
ference maker you need at this
time of year."
The big story, though, con-
tinued to be Ratcliff, the junior
second baseman who also had a
double Wednesday.
He is hitting over .450 for
the season and over .600 since
returning seven games ago from
an injury. His surge began when
he returned to a stand-up stance
at the plate instead of crouch-
ing.
"It has been like' watching
someone play a video game, he
is so hot," Menendez said. "I
see how he swings the bat in
practice and the tools he has,
and I almost expect him to get a
hit every time up he is that


good."
The Conchs took a 1-0 lead
in the third when Ratcliff, who
had stolen second, scored on a
single by Alfonso. The Bison
tied the game against Conch
junior Drew Rivera in the bot-
tom of the third on an RBI sin-
gle by Martinez.
Key West broke the tie in the
fifth when Kyle Lepine
knocked in his- 30th run of the
season on a ground ball.
Rivera gave way in the sixth
to Blayne Weller, who, with the
tying run on base, got Francisco
Lora to hit into a double-play.
Reagan threatened in its sev-
enth. After scoring a run on
three hits to make it 5-2, the
Bison had two on and Martinez
at the plate. With a. decided
height advantage, the 6-foot-5
Weller got him to hit back to the
mound to end the game.
"I expected to win, and the
margin was closer than we
expected, but it was. a good
game for us to be in,"
Menendez said.
The Conchs played St.
Brendan Friday night in a game
completed too late to be includ-
ed in today's paper.

'The future is brig


Young lacrosse
players pegged
for varsity
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Players on the field at today's
Keys Middle School Lacrosse
Jamboree in Islamorada could
help the Coral Shores varsity
next spring, says the Hurricane
coach.
"Many of the biggest contrib-
utors on the team [are] freshmen
and sophomores," Coach Erik
Bryan said. "Next year we
expect another large influx of
new freshmen from the two mid-
dle school programs at
Plantation Key School and Key
Largo School."
At Founders Park today,
Plantation Key and Key Largo
teams join eight mainland mid-


die-school clubs for games
beginning at 10 a.m. and running
through mid-afternoon.
Coral Shores' varsity opened
the 2008 season with a win but
then lost the next 11 garhes
before finishing the season in
late March.
"Pretty dismal," assessed
Bryan, although he noted it was
better than 2007's no-win
record.
Coral Shores graduates stand-
out goalkeeper D.J. Farr, defend-
er Jake Pinder, and midfielders
Billy Hart, Elvez Sosa and
DeSantis. "They all contributed
immensely," Bryan said.
Farr and Hart were named to
the all-District 12-A honors
team, along with junior defender
Chris Rini.
Rini, who collected a team-
best 96 ground balls, may be the
best player expected to return
next season, Bryan said.


Sht'

The club also looks for signif-
icant contributions from return-
ing midfielders Dylan Mats,
Matt Perry and Benlgnacio, and
attackers Austin Armstrong,
Devin Morris and Benny
Spaulding.
Armstrong, a freshman who
was the leading Hurricane scorer
with 14 goals, may convert to
goalkeeper.
Morris was the leading points
leader (goals and assists), while
Perry had a team-high .638 per-
centage in winning face-offs
(40-of-37).
"Three out of five of our lead-
ing stat producers are freshmen,"
Bryan said. "The future is
bright."

ICS baseball
falls to 9-5,
gets week off
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.com

The baseball Eagles of Island
Christian took some solace in
keeping it close for a time
Tuesday.
In the end, Class 6A Spanish
River of Boca Raton pulled
away from the 1A Eagles, 10-2,
scoring six runs over the final
three innings.
ICS coach Tony Hammon
counted the game as a learning
experience against an estab-
lished Spanish River program
making its fourth spring tour
through the Florida Keys.
"They were aggressive," he
said of the visiting Sharks to his
Eagles club in a post-game talk.
"They didn't hesitate."
After a scoreless first inning,
the Sharks used a pair of doubles
to score twice in the second.
Island Christian answered
with one run in the bottom of the


inning. Jon Cruciger doubled in
Jordan Izaguirre, who drew a
walk and advanced on an Andy
Hertel sacrifice bunt.
Phillip Izaguirre led off, the
third with a double and came
around to score, tying the game
at 2-2.
Spanish River added two runs
in the fourth, but the Eagles still
were in contention.
The Sharks tacked on three
runs in the fifth to add some dis-
tance, then got a solo home run
to deep center in the sixth.
Aaron Izaguirre, who fin-


ished the game pitching in relief
of Phillip, singled in the fourth
and doubled in the seventh. But
he was the only ICS hitter to get
a hit after the third inning.
Aaron went 3-for-4 at the
plate in the Eagles' five-hit
offense.
Island Christian (9-5) trav-
eled to face longtime rival
Princeton Christian on Friday,
then hosts Florida Bible at 4
p.m. April 18.
The Eagles host the District

a leadoff single, followed by hits
from Michelle Sexton, Rozina
Malzacher, Ashley Singleton
and Tessie Worden.
But then the offense slumped.
It took a sturdy defense and the
pitching arm of sophomore
Holly Given to hold the fort.
Given and reliever Lauren
Sanchez combined for a three-
hitter.
Singleton, filling in for veter-
an Ciara Sanchez at.third, clean-
ly fielded several grounders foe
key putouts and ran down a dif-
ficult pop fly into foul territory.
"Overall, it was a pretty good
defensive effort," Grewe said.


"Ashley had a big game."
Malzacher, Sexton and
Russell each had two hits, while
Worden, Given, Sanchez and
Singleton each had one.
"We played well as a team,"
Malzacher said. "We only wish
that Ciara [on a college visit]
was here for her last home
game."
Coral Shores returned from
Spring Break with a 12-0 win
over Princeton Christian
Monday. Results from a Friday
game at Dade Christian were
pending at press time.
