A new way to smuggle


Semi-submersible
ran drugs, now
is for research
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com

Deep in the jungles of South
America, drug traffickers slave
away building sophisticated,
submarine-like vessels to trans-
port drugs through the eastern


Pacific Ocean. Once the semi-
submersibles" are ready, a few
smugglers pack up to 12 tons of
cocaine inside and crowd into a
small cabin, headed for Mexico
or Central America.
Meanwhile, the U.S. military
does its best to keep up with the
criminals' ingenuity.
"There has been information
that the semi-submersibles have
existed for about 10 years," U.S.


Coast Guard Rear Adm. Joseph
Nimmich said. "But 2006 was
the first time U.S. law enforce-
ment actually saw one."
Nimmich also directs the
Joint Interagency Task Force
South, a counter-drug team
based in Key West comprising
varying U.S. military branches,
federal law enforcement and
U.S. intelligence

Blimp to get Keys test drive


Navy sees it
as way for more

reconnaissance
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Nearly a year after military
personnel came" to the Florida
Keys to discuss plans to bring in
a 178-foot zeppelin for added
security and surveillance, mili-
tary officials say they'll test a
manned, commercial blimp to
patrol Keys waters most likely
this summer.
Though it's not the A-170
blimp the U.S. Naval Air Systems
Command and U.S. Coast Guard
Maritime Domain Awareness orig-
inally planned for, it could offer
strong border security and help in
search-and-rescue missions.
After the Sept. 11, 2001, ter-
rorist attacks, the Coast Guard
started developing Maritime
Domain Awareness, a program
for the safety and security of the
America's maritime environment
and economy.
"The Navy wants to test [the
blimp].out to see if they can move


it forward," said Cmdr. Guy
Thomas, a science and technolo-
gy advisor in Washington, D.C.
"It can go well off shore and stay
up a longer percentage of the
time. I'm sure they plan to fly
over the water and use it for off-
shore reconnaissance and to
detect people, coming to our
coast."
Said Rear Adm. Joseph
Nimmich, "It's a test and evalua-
tion for future capability."
Nimmich is also director of
Joint Interagency Task Force
South, an anti-drug agency con-
sisting of military and law
enforcement. He said if the blimp
proves successful, it could be
used to detect boats attempting to
traffic drugs.
The Navy retired its last air-
ship in 1962.
The one being looked at for
the Keys used to be used by Fuji
film for publicity, with its logo
blazoned on as it hovered above
crowd-filled events. It requires
two pilots and one equipment
operator and has nautical surface-
search radar.
The Navy leases the blimp


from Airship Management
Services in Greenwich, Conn. It's
now in Weeksville, N.C.
The company advertises blimps
that stay afloat from helium gas,
carry'two Porsche 930 engines and
can reach speeds of 65 mph.
In November 2006, structural
flaws in Coast Guard security
vessels were found in eight Key
West-based cutters used for
homeland security, drug and
migrant interdictions, and general
law enforcement.
Adm. Thad Allen, top com-
mander for the Coast Guard, in
Key West declared the eight unfit
for water, leaving only two cut-
ters to patrol the area.
Nimmich says the blimp could
provide better utilization of those
cutters.
"We've identified ways to get
more out of the cutters we have,"
Nimmich said. "If a blimp is out
patrolling, you can see a better
picture."
The Keys already have one
stationary radar blimp on Cudjoe
Key, called Fat Albert. It's a U.S.
Air Force aerostat blimp that
stays tethered to the ground. It's
pretty much a landmark in the
bayside sky.


Smugglers get tech-savvy


SMUGGLE / From 1

mated 24 to 30 vessels transport-
ed cocaine but only five were
interdicted. With the exception of
one found in the Caribbean, all
were intercepted in the Eastern
Pacific, in areas ranging from
Colombia up to Guatemala.
One such vessel with a fiber-
glass hull was interdicted
November 2006 in the Eastern
Pacific. Four drug runners were
apprehended and charged with
attempting to smuggle more than
four tons of cocaine in the vessel,
Nimmich said.
Eventually the semi-sub-
mersible was transported by barge
to Coast Guard Sector Key West,
where it was docked, and later
driven to Florida Bay. There, the
Coast Guard learned more about it
and tested its radar system until a
piece of the vessel broke off and it
became unfit for sea.
April 10, the\ moved it to the
Joint Interaneiic', 's base, where it
sits on dry land near the Truman
Waterfront.


The new smuggling tool sig-
nals a more sophisticated, dis-
crete strategy to transport drugs.
Fishing boats have been the pri-
mary means of transporting
drugs.
Traffickers are "extraordinarily
fast at adaptation," Nimmich said.
The makeshift semi-subs
aren't full-on submarines since
they're incapable of diving.
Nimmich said they sit about 12 to
16 inches above water, depend-
ing on the amount of drugs inside
to weigh it down.
"It makes for a very low pro-
file," Nimmich said, "which
makes it very hard to detect.
They're very complicated in the
way they're made, with a lot of
technological savvy."
Somehow, builders sneak $2
million worth of materials,
including generators and pro-
pellers, to the jungles, where they
can build them undisturbed,
according to the U.S. Southern
Command.
The self-propelled vessels
range from'45 t6 82 feet long,
travel about 8 mph and can ven-


ture as far as 2,000 miles.
When caught, some vessel
operators drivers attempt to scut-
tle them to keep law enforcement
from obtaining the evidence.
Spotting the subs takes the
help of intelligence agencies, and
sometimes it comes down to
searching for a wake in the
ocean, Nimmich says.
U.S. Southern Command
Adm. Jim Stavridis said in a pre-
pared statement: "We're using
the same kinds of technologies
that we used to hunt submarines
in the Cold War to try and find
these semi-submersibles."
Because military officials
can't think of a lawful use for
them, some are fighting to make
the semi-submersibles illegal.
The one in Key West is the
only one in the U.S. Nimmich
says the Joint Interagency is
working with the Colombian
coast guard to see if it can obtain
additional vessels for research.
"Drug runners will continue to
do this," Nimmich said, "until we
become more successful than
they are."

Tax plan advances

how that money will be spent."
The bill is written so the
money is distributed in the geo-
graphical regions where it's
raised, unless the county and the
city make other arrangements.
According to Wheeler, that
would mean that Key West would
get $2.4 million of the potential
$4.5 million raised by the tax.
'"Clearly there is- an
inequitable distribution of the
funds in that 52 percent of it goes
to Key West," Commissioner
George Neugent said. "Who said
52 percent of the need for afford-
able housing is in Key West?"
"I don't care who is in con-
trol," McPherson told the
Keynoter Friday. "We need the.
money for affordable housing,
however it can get done."
Neither the TDC nor the com-
mission had taken up the issue
before McPherson started lobby-
ing for it in Tallahassee.
But Wednesday, the commis-
sion did approve a proposal hop-
ing to change language in the bill
giving the county the ability to
pass an ordinance changing that
distribution.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton sent the proposal on to
Robert Reyes, the county's lob-
byist, but it's not clear whether
the bill can be altered. It was
approved Monday by the House
Policy and Budget Council; the


House floor is the next stop.
"The state Legislature may
not use the additional language,
and that would leave the county
with two bad options," Wheeler
said. "One would be not to vote
to impose the penny. The other
would be to vote for the penny
and have the money go directly to
the city for their use."
Jodi Weinhofer, president of
the Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West,
blasted an e-mail to her member-
ship Friday urging everyone to
oppose the companion Senate
bill.
"We all recognize that funding
for affordable housing is a seri-
ous issue for many Florida cities
and counties," she wrote, "but no
single industry should be targeted
to finance the solution, and cer-
tainly not an industry that is
already collecting more than $4
billion each year in sales taxes for
general revenue purposes and
another $551 million in bed taxes
for local tourist development pro-
grams."
- The main thrust of the bill
does a lot for affordable housing,
including exempting such hous-
ing under income guidelines
from property taxation and pro-
viding incentives for young
adults who are leaving the child
welfare system. The overall good
intent of the bill has so far
assured it unanimous passage
through a variety of House com-
mittees.

Carl Ross Key
reopens in bay

Carl Ross Key, in Florida Bay
7 miles southwest of Flamingo,
has reopened for day use from
sunrise to sunset.
In 2006, Everglades National
Park officials made Carl Ross
Key a day-use-only area with
annual seasonal closures from
Oct. 15 to April 15 because of the
impacts on the island from the
2005 hurricane season. The
island sustained a significant loss
of land, making both overnight
camping and' associated waste
disposal unfeasible. As such,
Carl Ross Key was closed to
overnight camping.
Meanwhile, Sandy Key, to the
immediate south of Carl Ross


Key, remains a.major bird rookery
and is closed to all visitor access.

Foster-parent
training planned

Three-hundred Monroe
County children need foster fam-
ilies and homes in the Keys,
according to Wesley House
Family Services.
Wesley House is offering free
foster-parent training starting in
May in Key West, Marathon and
Tavemier.
Anyone interested in classes
in Key West or Marathon should
call Val Maynard at 289-2680.

Dawson at 853-3515. Or go to

RETURN TO WATER: Sharpie the manatee is released
Thursday near mile marker 104.5. Sharpie, a 4-year-old
male, was rescued in February by a marine-mammal team
from the Dolphin Research Center and personnel from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife'Conservation Commission after he
became entangled in monofilament. The mammal was
taken to the Miami Seaquarium for rehab. He lost his right
flipper due to severe infection but experts believe Sharpie
will have no problem surviving in the wild with just one
flipper because manatees use their tails as a primary
means for propulsion.



Crime dips slightly


CRIME / From 1

at Jewfish Creek in Key Largo
remains unsolved.
Overall, the major-crime
index in the Sheriff's Office's
jurisdiction dipped to 2,217
from 2,245 in 2006.
"Crime continues its down-
ward trend in Monroe County,"
Sheriff Rick Roth said in a pre-
pared statement.
"We are also continuing to
show an excellent clearance rate
for those crimes, which shows
our officers are effective in solv-
ing our major cases," Roth said.
The Sheriff's Office posted a
24.6 percent clearance rate, two
points higher thaii the state aver-
age.
Crimes are cleared by an
arrest or a determination that the
criminal has been identified but
cannot be charged.
That means "there is some-
thing beyond the agency's con-
trol which keeps the offender
from being arrested," according
to the agency. "An example
would be that the offender is
dead, extradition is denied or the
case involves a juvenile offender


who cannot be charged for some
reason."
Key West reported just a 6.3
percent clearance rate.
In Key .West, major crimes
went from 1,834 in 2006 to
1,792 last year.
The 50 robberies in Key West
were down nearly 30 percent,
from 71 in 2006 to 50. Theft of
vehicles in the Southernmost
City also dropped, from 240 to
188.
Key West burglaries were
down more than 20 percent, to
282.
There were 26 rapes reported
in Key West, down from 30 in
2006.
A spokeswoman for the Key
West Police Department could
not be reached for comment.

Key West hijacks

proposed 5th penny

Hijack may be too strong a word, but there are those in the
lodging industry who would use that word and even
stronger ones to describe what's happening to b6d taxes.
After being thwarted last year, Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson bypassed the Monroe County Commission, local
hoteliers, even state Rep. Ron Saunders and went directly to
the Legislature.
McPherson wants a penny added to the county's four-penny
tax on accommodations. City lobbyists drafted legislation that
would shift how that fifth cent is spent and more important-
ly who gets to call the shots.
Previously, oversight on bed taxes rested with the County
Commission. It, in turn, appoints an advisory board, the Tourist
Development Council, to guide marketing and vet capital
spending requests.
McPherson wants to change all that.
Remember last fall when the TDC voted down a request to
spend an additional $2 million to sink the USS Vandenberg as
an artificial reef? McPherson and County Commissioner Mario
Di Genarro, who sit on the TDC, were on the losing end of a 7-
2 vote that time.
Revenge comes via a bill drafted by. Key West's lobbyist law
firm that passed a House committee this week and now has a
companion in the Senate. It bypasses the county, sending rev-
enue from the extra penny to municipalities based on bed-tax
collections.
Since Key West hotels generate 53 percent of the bed taxes
collected countywide, -the city could get up to $2.4 million by
shifting this control. That's based on estimates that a fifth
penny tax, if levied, would generate $4.5 million a year.
Other municipalities would get 27 percent of that money pot,
leaving only 20 percent for unincorporated Monroe, chiefly
Key Largo and Big Pine Key.
Quite simply, the county loses control over 80 percent of the
funds raised by the extra penny tax.
Key West lobbyist Ed Scales, who explained the rationale at
Wednesday's County Commission meeting, had a hard time
overcoming the perception that someone was pulling a fast one.
He suggested the County Commission pass an ordinance to
control that allocation instead of an interlocal agreement with
Key West.
The city's position will be even harder to explain when peo-
ple realize money from that fifth penny isn't restricted to
affordable housing which was the original justification.-
Unless something happens in Tallahassee to derail this train,
Key West could wind up with the power to spend $2.4 million
on any tourism-related project it chooses who knows,
maybe even sinking a 520-foot ship.

County fails industry, public on bed-tax vote


EDITOR:
Members of the Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West are very disappointed
and upset at the decision made at Wednesday's
Monroe County Commission meeting [about a
proposed fifth penny on the bed tax and how it
would be spent].
There has been a tremendous amount of press
about the proposed changes to the statute regard-"
ing bed-tax use. Our association ahd our industry
have been incredibly clear that we do not support
this change. Further, we do not support the way
the city of Key West has gone around the system
to secure a change to the state statute prior to any
discussion with the industry.
The County Commission originally voted not
to support any changes to the system and then
rescinded that Vote at a meeting the next day
when no one from the industry was present to*
speak. At that time, it chose to remain neutral.
The County Commission promised our indus-
try it would not take a stand on this issue until it
had heard input from the industry and the public.
And yet at Wednesday's meeting, with a late
addition to the agenda for discussion only, they
heard from Key West lobbyist Ed Scales. Then
after lunch the commission recalled the agenda
item and with no notice voted to support the bill
with amended language.,
The commission received advice from the


Tourist Development Council that the best course
would be to oppose this bill until the language
was clarified. Instead, it voted to support this bill
with possibly amended language.
Does this mean the County Commission has
now given support to this bill without the indus-
try and public input it promised? Because this is
how the lobbyists for this bill will use the vote it
made Wednesday. Why wouldn't it oppose this
bill until we can have the appropriate discussions
and find the appropriate manner to proceed in
this issue?
Even legislators in Tallahassee and state
tourism agencies have requested there be input
from the industry prior to making this change.
There is no reason to rush into changing a state
statute for an issue that has been a priority dis-
cussion for over 20 years.
It seems clear the County Commission has
chosen to ignore the wishes and interests of the
only industry that will be taxed and impacted by
this specific tax to the detriment of the industry
driving the economy of the Florida Keys.
The Lodging Association strongly urges the
County Commission to clarify its position and
not support this bill until it has heard input from
the industry and the public as promised.

Students take the lead in cleaning our bridges


EDITOR:
We as students of the Coral Shores
High School leadership class and resi-
dents of the Florida Keys appreciate and
respect.the natural beauty of our home.
We are asking the community to help us
keep the bridges clean.
Last month our group, the Clean
Futures, traveled to the Tavernier Creek
Bridge and found what looked like a
garbage dump. We saw and picked up
cluttered monofilament, chum boxes,
shoes, beer cans, bottles, Styrofoam
coolers and plastic bags, and someone
even caught a medium-sized tarpon and
left it to die under the bridge.
When we witness horrors such as
this, it brings tears to our eyes. We can-
not understand how people could have
such disrespect for our community.
Trash in and around our waters not only
looks bad but has an even worse effect
on animals and the environment in
which they live.'
The average life span of a plastic six-
pack collar is 450 years. These items are
a threat to marine and land wildlife such
as birds and turtles. They can become
entangled or gorge themselves on what
they thought was a delectable treat.
When ingested, their digestive tracks
may become blocked causing the animal
certain death from starvation.
Trashing our waters also leads to the
destruction of our coral reefs. The reef is
extremely delicate and can easily be
harmed. Something as simple as a
trashed lead weight can damage it.


We have already begun the cleaning
.process by spending half a day cleaning
up the Channel 2 Bridge and its sur-
rounding area. We will be planning
many more bridge cleanup in the near
future to help save our environment.
We would like to thank the state
Department of Environmental Protection
for the 10 trash barrels that will be
placed on the historic bridges. Thank you
also to Monroe Youth Challenge
Program Prevention Coordinator Michele
Sutter and Monica Woll of the Florida
Keys Overseas Heritage Trail who
helped coordinate the Channel 2 Bridge
cleanup. With the donation of supplies
from Sandy and Lee Sherrill of Rock
Harbor Paint, our class has painted these
trash barrels with the triumphant Coral
Shores High School colors and logo.
To accomplish our goal to keep our
bridges clean, we need the help of our
community. You can help by spreading
the word-to encourage all to clean up
after themselves or by donating trash
cans or other supplies and joining us on
our mission. If we don't act soon, the
Florida Keys as we know it will never
be the same.

Reliance on biofuels


hurts world's hungry


The state Senate is expected to
consider a bill with bipartisan sup-
port that would require gasoline sold
in Florida to contain a 10 percent
ethanol blend within two years.
The misguided proposal fits with a
federal mandate that requires almost
14 billion gallons of the mostly corn-
derived fuel to be sold by 2021 .The
United Kingdom also recently
passed a law requiring all transporta-
tion fuel to be mixed with either
ethanol or so-called biodiesel, a
diesel blend made from soybeans or
animal fats.
Using fuel derived from
food stocks like corn, sug-
arcane and soybeans
makes people feel good
because the sources of the
fuel are renewable, unlike
crude oil. The blends also
produce less-harmful
emissions than conven-
tional gasoline and diesel.
Conceivably, they could
help us lessen our depend-
ence on foreign oil and
the amount of carbon David G
dioxide emitted into the editor
atmosphere. Report
But relying on so-called RUpp
biofuels has risks, as well,
not the least of which is
causing already-rising food costs to
skyrocket. This recent rise in food
prices largely pushed by the
increased worldwide use of biofuels
- could push nearly 100 million
poor people deeper into poverty,
according to a report released this
week by the Washington, D.C.,-
based World Bank.
The report refers to biofuels as a
significant factor in the recent spike
in food prices. According to an April
14 story by the online publication
www.cleantech.com, which cites the
World Bank report, almost all the
increase in global corn production
from 2004 to 2007 went for biofuel
production in the United States. This
is the same period when grain prices
spiked. Existing grain stocks were
depleted by an increase in global
consumption for other uses, accord-
ing to the Cleantech.com report.
The World Bank went on to say
the grain required to fill .the gas tank
of an SUV with ethanol could feed


one person for a year.
What makes renewable fuel man-
dates even harder to legitimize: They
didn't originate as an effort to save
the environment or even reduce our
dependence on foreign oil. Rather, -
these are the byproducts from
decades of federal, subsidies to agri-
giants like Archer Daniels Midland
Corp.
Ethanol, which is not on par per-,
formance-wise with straight gasoline
or even gas blended with its compet-
ing additive MTBE, delivers a 5.4-`
cents-per-gallon tax break
to fuel companies that sell
it. And domestic produc-
ers are protected from for-
eign competition by a 54-_
cents-per-gallon tariff on-
imports. In other words,:
since ethanol costs signifi-
cantly more to produce
* f than conventional fuel
blends, government help
is needed for ethanol tti
even be viable in the mar-
ket.
oodhue is It's also worth mention-
r of The ing to boat owners that
er in the ethanol-blended gasoline
r Keys can be disastrous to a
r Keys boat's fuel system.
Now, does all this mean
the idea of someday switching our
transportation sector away from fos-
sil fuels to renewables should be
abandoned? No. In fact, we should
be aggressively pursuing that goal.
We will run out of oil someday, and
continuing to depend on the Middle
East and unfriendly countries like
Venezuela for our fuel supply is dan-
gerous.
But the renewable transportation
fuel we have now is not ready
enough to economically compete
with .conventional fuel. Insisting it is
will just cost us more in money and
in the lives of the world's poor.
A sound renewable energy policy
looks not to 9ur food, but to biofuels
made from cellulose like switch-
grass, wood chips, corn stovers and .
other crop byproducts. Now's not the
time to gamble with our. fuel and
food supply for the sake of feel-good
environmentalism and corporate
welfare to agri-business interests.

Bay blooms could return


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com

Scientists say they don't know
what triggered algae-like blooms
in Florida Bay and cannot say if the
blooms will return this summer.
They do know the creature
that creates the blooms: Not an
algae, but a type of marine bacte-
ria called synechoccus.
"It exists here every day. It's
not exotic or introduced," said
Joe Boyer, a Florida International
University biologist who studies
the bay near his Key Largo
home.
"It's here all the time, waiting
for the right conditions to
bloom," Boyer said. "We're try-
ing to find out what those condi-
tions are. We haven't got there
yet."
Unlike a red-tide algae bloom,
the Florida Bay blooms are not
toxic in themselves. But the blan-
ket of organisms discolors bay
water, reduces water visibility
and kills sponges.
Sponges filter water, keeping
it clean of matter like the syne-
choccus bacteria. But an excess

of the bacteria chokes the sponge
to death, Boyer said.
"We are looking at how to set
up a [sponge] restoration plan to
get sponges back out there,"
Boyer said. "That might help a
lot."
He noted the bacteria "is not
growing faster than normal. It's
that it's not dying."
The bacteria can feed on phos-
phorous and nutrients in the
water, and are not removed by
sponges or killed by cold winters.
Loss of sponges also may
harm the bay's lobster popula-
tions, which use sponges as shel-
ter.
"After the sponge die-offs, the
lobster don't have that much
shelter to go back to," said Scott
Donahue, an associate scientist
with the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary.
The sanctuary was able to
conduct a focused study to see if
the blooms threaten seagrass-
restoration efforts. If the bloom
does not block sunlight from
reaching seagrass on the bay bot-
tom, restoration can proceed,
Donahue said.
People at a workshop this
week asked whether a mulching


and soil-mixing process used for
the U.S. 1 widening project trig-
gered the bloom.
For the "eastern bloom" near
Barnes Sound and Blackwater
Sound, South Florida Water
Management District scientist
David Rudnick said, "I don't
think there's much doubt that
[roadway work] contributed, but I
think there's a lot more going on."
Levels of phosphorous creat-
ed by the roadwork were not high
enough to cause the bloom to
grow, he said.
Nutrient-laden waters
released into the bay after the
2005 hurricanes also were a fac-
tor, scientists said.
The blooms have caused sci-
entists and the Department of
Transportation to further consid-
er the planned removal of the
Lake Surprise causeway used for
the Flagler railroad and U.S. 1.
"Any time you disturb a sys-
tem the causeway has been
there for 100 years there is
concern," Rudnick said. "You
should be prepared, it could dam-
age the system a little bit or a lot."
The bay blooms have
decreased in size in recent months,
but the weather is warming.
"They do like the summer,"
Rudnick said.


Embezzler admits guilt


A Key West woman on Friday
pleaded guilty to two felony
charges for embezzling $1.24
million from a Keys credit union
between 2002 and 2007.
Patricia Long, who will turn
60 Sunday, was the manager of
the Monroe County Teachers
Federal Credit Union for more
than 10 years.
A tearful Long appeared
before Monroe County Circuit
Judge David Audlin Jr. and
admitted to grand theft of more
than $20,000 and organized
scheme to defraud involving
more than $50,000.
Audlin will sentence Long
Jpne 23. According to terms of
her plea agreement, she will
serve two years in prison fol-
lowed by 10 years' probation,
during which she must pay resti-
tution to the credit union.
Long has already repaid the
financial institution $100,000 in
cash and surrendered a retirement
account worth about $177,000
before taxes. She had deposits


with the credit union of some
$62,000, which she also forfeited.
Long must also sign over the
proceeds from the sale of her
Maloney Avenue house valued at
some $405,000, less its $166,000
mortgage, to the credit union.
According to an internal cred-
it-union investigation, Long
began embezzling money in 2002
when she stole $32,795. The fol-
lowing year she pocketed more
than 10 times that $350,706.
After opening credit-card
accounts paid by the credit union,
Long charged hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in merchandise
to local and Internet merchants as
well as to QVC and other televi-
sion sales programs.
Long duped auditors and
board members for years by doc-
toring statements from a bank
that held credit-union funds. The
bogus statements indicated the
credit union had more money
than it really did.

Engineers to examine

airport terminal ramp


It collapsed
on April 8,
killing man
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Demolition on a collapsed
section of a ramp at Key West
International Airport starts
Tuesday, Monroe County
Engineer David Koppel said.
He and others hope the strate-
gic removal of the debris will
give some indication why the
ramp came down April 8 and
killed 39-year-old Carlos
Umberto Fuentes Seanz of
Guatemala. Big Pine Key resi-
dent Keith White, 42, was
injured.. He was admitted to
Lower Keys Medical Center,
where he remained for two days,
then released.
Both men worked for Apex
Construction, one of several
subcontractors working for the
Morganti Group to build the
new $30 million passenger ter-
minal.
According to officials at the
scene the day of the accident,
temporary wooden scaffolding
built to contain wet concrete
while it was being poured gave
way, sending, the still-soft con-
crete onto the workers.
"Morganti has hired a struc-
tural engineering firm to oversee
the forensics," Koppel said. The
Miami-based firm of Pistorino
and Alam will oversee the work.
The U.S. Occupational
Safety and Health
Administration and the county
will watch closely as the acci-
dent site is deconstructed,


Koppel said.
No one is sure yet why the
scaffolding failed. Koppel said
investigators will look closely at
the soil where the temporary
structures stood to see if rain in
the days before the collapse
might have made the ground
unstable.
He said there's no indication
the accident stems from bad
work on the part of the construc-
tion company.
"This has nothing to do with
the pilings or the structure
itself," said Koppel. "It's strictly
a problem with the temporary
support system used during the
construction process."
In the meantime, work is
continuing on the rest of the site.
Koppel hopes to see the new ter-
minal open by the end of June.

Gastesi deal is OK'd


Administrator
starts new
job May 12
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Amid banter about his golf
game, the Monroe County
Commission Wednesday
unanimously approved a four-
year contract with Roman
Gastesi. The new county
administrator starts work May
12.
"I feel like I'm really ready
for this position and I'm look-
ing forward to it," Gastesi
said at the commission's reg-
ular monthly meeting at the


Harvey Government Center in
Key. West.
Starting salary is $145,000
annually with a bump up to
$155,000 Dec. 1. Including
insurance benefits and a $650
monthly transportation
allowance, Gastesi's total
compensation is worth closer
to $200,000 annually.
Gastesi replaces Tom
Willi, whose contract was
unceremoniously canceled
without cause in December,
nearly a year before it was
slated to expire. Since then,
Deputy Administrator Debbie
Frederick has filled in,
accepting no additional salary
for the job.


Gastesi says he's pleased
with the way the community
has already begun reaching
out to him and says he met
with a number of groups even
before the contract was
approved.
"I've practically already
started," Gastesi said, adding
that he would be available to
meet with or talk to the com-
missioners in the interim
before he officially takes the
reigns in May.
"I'm looking forward to a
four-year honeymoon," he
told the commissioners.
Gastesi will discuss his
take on county issues on
Wednesday's "Keynoter
News" at 7:30 p.m. on
Comcast Channel 5.

Pair of tax proposals is ditched


The fire fee,
higher gas tax
off the table
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
narrowly rejected two proposals
that, combined, would have
raised more than $1 million in
revenue for the county.
The first was an added penny
gas tax, the other a $34 annual
fire assessment.


The penny gas-tax revenue
would have provided much-
needed funding to repair county
bridges, County Engineer David
Koppel said. The fire fee would
have been used to pay the salary
of four new firefighters and buy
a pumper truck for Sugarloaf
Key.
County Commissioner
George Neugent left the month-
ly meeting at the Harvey
Government Center in Key
West before the 3 p.m. public
hearings on the tax proposals,
so he didn't vote on either issue.

Commissioner Dixie
Spehar's was the sole vote
against the 1-cent gas tax.
"You must have a majority-
plus one," County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton said. "Or, if not
all commissioners are present, it
has to be unanimous. So the
item failed."
"Too bad," Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy said.
For several months, county
staff had been trying to get up to
6 cents added to the cost of a
gallon of gas to pay for main-
taining county bridges and
roads. Public Works Director
Dent Pierce said road funds are
being depleted faster than they
can be replenished. The county
is responsible for the upkeep on
28 bridges and 400 miles of sec-
ondary roads.
When it came time to vote on
the proposal to implement a fire
assessment that would have
provided, half a million dollars
for firefighting, there were only
three commissioners at the dais.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro, who had been
opposed to the tax in previous
meetings, was missing, as was

Monroe County firefighter
Richard Vandervoort beseeched
the commission to pass the fee,
even if no money was leveraged
at first.
"We understand if you don't
want to impose any more taxes
on your citizens," he said. "But
this gives you a tool for the
future."
Kathy Wheeler, a representa-
tive of the Big Pine Key Civic
Association, noted that fire
safety is the foremost job of
county government.
"Fire safety is your No. 1
priority," she told the commis-


sion. "Whether you call it an
assessment or a tax, it's still
coming out of our wallets."
When he was fire chief,
Wayne Hinnant contracted a
consultant to explore the feasi-
bility of the fee. Last month the
company, Government Services
Group, presented ways the fee
could be imposed. At the time,
Hinnant recommended the
county impose a fee of $311 per
household for residents in unin-
corporated Monroe County.
After hearing the negative
reaction, however, staff came
pack with a more modest pro-
posal of $34 a year. Areas that
already pay a fire tax would
have been exempt.


Attorney hints
problems with
documentation
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Then-Monroe County
Administrator Tom Willi's fail-
ure to sufficiently. document
problems with then-county
Budget Director Sal Zappulla
apparently is the reason county
staff recommended Zappulla get
a $149,700 payoff rather than
defend his firing.
Assistant County Attorney
Bob Shillinger was reticent to
talk publicly about specifics of
the case, but that's what he inti-
mated when the County
Commission voted Wednesday
to approve the deal.
According to an October
memo written by then-Fire
Chief Wayne Iinnant informing.
Zappulla he was fired, Zappulla
was issued two written repri-
mands. Hinnant had been acting
as a hearing officer.
Willi, whom the' -County
Commission fired in December,
suspended Zappulla last August
after Zappulla left a voice mes-
sage for another county employ-
ee that some construed as a
death threat.
Zappulla appealed his firing
to the county Career Service
Council but he and county attor-


neys negotiated the payoff
before it went to hearing.
The settlement represents a
year's salary, enough money to
pay health insurance premiums
for a year, and Zappulla's legal
bills of about $34,000,
Shillinger said.
"I'm not happy to present this
to you," Shillinger told the com-
mission, but he said the deal
would save the county money.
He told the commissioners
that if the case went to hearing
and even if the county won, it
would end up spending between
$200,000 and $300,000 to pur-
sue the matter.
"This is one of the worst,
hardest decisions I've made up
here," Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro said. "It just doesn't
taste right."
"I feel very strongly it sends a
message that you can do any-
thing you want and we'll pay
you off and let you go,"
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
said.
Di Gennaro, Sylvia Murphy
and Sonny McCoy voted to
approve the settlement. Spehar
voted no. Commissioner George
Neugent was absent for the vote.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said she has talked with
all county division directors,
warning them to closely follow
county policy when it comes to
reprimanding employees.

Big Pine animal shelter closing in June


But Stand Up
hopes to keep
some presence
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The end of a 20-year lease
between Monroe County and
Keys Energy Services on Big
Pine Key could mean the Stand
Up for Animals shelter there
permanently closing its doors.
If that happens, the animals
there when the deal expires
would likely be transferred to
the Marathon animal shelter
though the group wants to
maintain a Big Pine presence.
-,Stand Up had 53 cats and
four dogs at the Big Pine shelter
Friday, employee Lee Ann
Mathews said.
The county entered into the
agreement with then-City
Electric System Aug. 16, 1988,
with the purpose of constructing
an animal-control building at
the now-decommissioned Big
Pine Peaker Generating site on
Industrial Road.
On Sept. 13, 2007, Keys


Energy Compliance Admin-
istrator Stanley Rzad sent a letter
to then-County Administrator
Tom Willi indicating the utility
intended to terminate the lease.
Then in an April 7 letter to
Keys Energy, acting County
Administrator Debbie Frederick
said she's decided to close the
shelter June 30. The letter also
says that in meetings with Stand
Up Director Linda Gottwald,
Gottwald "expressed an interest
in negotiating directly with
Keys Energy to maintain an
emergency animal drop-off area
and a room for a spay/neuter
clinic."
The county paid for the con-
struction of the two-story, 624-
square-foot facility, which will
become Keys Energy property
when the lease expires.
"Our dialog to the shelter is
we're open to discussing an
alternate agreement and keep-
ing some sort of presence. We
asked they provide us some-
thing in writing, a proposal as to
what they feel they would like
on that site and how it could
work between KEYS and the


animal shelter," Keys Energy
spokesman Julio Barroso said.
On April 10, Gottwald sent a
letter to Keys Energy outlining
her proposal. It says her group
wants to maintain the privately
funded spay/neuter clinics that
take place at the Industrial Road


Stand Up
had 53 cats
and four
dogs at the
Big Pine

shelter
Friday.


site and offer "a financial
stipend as compensation."
The utility intended to use
the 2.14-acre lot as a solar ener-
gy farm, but Barroso said after
"community feedback" it was
willing to discuss the possibility
of the shelter staying.


In a January special meeting,
the County Commission direct-
ed contractors for animal shel-
ters Keyswide to cut back their
budgets by $17,000. It was one
of many cutbacks and layoffs
that saw $2.3 million shaved off
the bloated county budget.
Gottwald said without coun-
ty assistance, "We couldn't con-
tinue to offer the level of serv-
ice we've been offering."
"We would probably move
the animals to the Marathon
shelter. It's getting pretty full
[but] we're planning on build-
ing an extension," Gottwald
said.
Gottwald said Big Pine is in
need of animal control and that


Stand Up will continue to serv-
ice the area as best it can. Either
way, it appears the shelter will
not be open in the capacity it
once was.
"We were so happy to open it
six years ago and we're going to
miss the volunteers that have
spent time there. A lot of ani-
mals have passed through there
and found a home," Gottwald
said.

Chicago's JDI gets Cay Clubs properties


Company collapse
all but complete
with an auction
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Several former Cay Clubs

pany that financed several proj-
ects for the condominium manag-
er and redeveloper.
JDI was the sole bidder in the

two foreclosure lawsuits the
Chicago-based company won
earlier this year against various
Cay Clubs subsidiaries.
The properties won by JDI
include the Pilot House restaurant
and marina, an .office building
and other parcels in Key Largo;
several vacant parcels in
Islamorada; and residential build-
ings at 372, 453 and 543 11llth St.

lender is awarded a value amount
and the property then goes to auc-
tion, according to Monroe
County Clerk Danny Kohlage.
The lender can bid up to the
amount of the judgment without
actually paying the court any-
thing, so the auction ensures that
the lender will either get the
amount of their judgment or the
property in the case.
JDI bid $2 million in a case in
which it was awarded a $7.8 mil-
lion judgment. The company bid
$1 million in a case in which it
was awarded an $11 million
judgment. JDI will pay $21,000
to the Florida Department of
Revenue.
Auctions stemming from fore-
closure cases are open to the pub-.
lic and are held daily at 11 a.m. on
the Key West courthouse steps.
About six members of the public
attended Thursday's auction.
Cay Clubs collapsed in the fall
of 2007 amid mounting debts in a
stalled condominium market. It
now has lost much of its holdings
to lenders. The company also
faces lawsuits from condomini-
um owners in the Keys and on the
mainland.
Requests for comment to rep-

returned as of press time.
Property in Key Largo:
The Pilot House restaurant
and marina, 13 Seagate Blvd.
The Cristal Clear Charters
building and Calypso's restaurant


building, at 5 and 1 Seagate
Blvd., respectively.
Two single-family homes
near the Pilot House, 15 Seagate

at 172 Florida Drive, along with
adjacent tracts on Magnolia
Drive, a repair building next to
those vacant tracts on Georgia

plots.
Property in Islamorada:


A small waterfront lot near
the Keys Motel and Tropic Vista

Boat prop gashes
fisherman's leg

A Rhode Island man suffered
severe leg injuries Thursday
when hit by his own boat's pro-
peller.
David Morowitz, 49, left the
helm of his 17-foot Boston
Whaler to drop anchor on the
bayside of the Long Key Bridge
around 4:30 p.m., according to a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
report.
Morowitz fell overboard. The
boat, still occupied by a fishing


companion and Morowitz's 9-
year-old son, circled around and
struck Morowitz, "causing severe
damage to his left leg," agency
spokesman Officer Bobby Dube
said.
The propeller apparently
gashed Morowitz's leg in several
places. Boaters near the scene
helped remove him from the
water and raced him back to
Outdoor Resorts on Long Key.
Morowitz was flown by res-
cue helicopter to Ryder Trauma
Center in Miami, where he
remained in the Intensive Care
Unit at press time Friday.

MHS dedicates
new building
on April 30
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's been open for a while now,
but with the finishing touches
being put on the new campus at
Marathon High School, students
and faculty are ready to cut the
ribbon and make it official.
Principal Harry Russell and
his staff are planning a full slate
of events April 30 to commemo-
rate the school's opening. Many
students have spent the better part
of their time in campus in
portable classrooms as construc-
tion was ongoing.
Russell said an assortment of
students will be a part of a rib-
bon-cutting in the courtyard
behind the school at 1:45 p.m. At
5:30 p.m., a ceremony including
several guest speakers and a
PowerPoint presentation showing
pictures from the school's past
and present will take place in the
new auditorium.
Tours of the campus will be
available following the ceremony
and Russell said culinary-arts
teacher Anthony Green will


organize food stations throughout
the campus for visitors.
Monroe County School
District Facilities and
Construction Director Fred Sims
said Heery International will
complete the 200,000-square-
foot campus for just under the
expected $47 million price tag.
The school's seven new build-
ings administration, academic,
gymnasium, middle school, audi-
torium, cafeteria .and auditorium
- will cater to 555 students.
Russell and other officials said
the building is one the communi-.
ty can be proud of for years to
come.
"We are able to say a pretty
neat thing in Monroe County that
none of the facilities are older
than six years," Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said, noting
equity was an important factor
for Marathon's smaller number of
students.
"If you build it smaller, you
wouldn't have the same opportu-
nities our other schools in the
county do," he said.
The school features new com-
puter, construction, culinary and
marine-mechanics labs Acevedo
says are on par with the rest of the
county.


"It really helps for the kids
when you walk on you can be
proud of it. 1 think they truly
appreciate what they have,"
Russell said.
School Board member John
Dick is a Marathon resident and
former career counselor at
Marathon High School.
"I can tell you over the many
years I've been associated,
there's beer many false starts and
finally -it has come to fruition,"
Dick said. "It's a great day for the
Marathon community."
Both Acevedo. and Dick, who
are among the guest speakers at
the ceremony, said while the
teachers in the classroom are
most important, improved facili-
ties make the experience for them
and students better. All class-
rooms now have a projector and
sound enhancement systems
allowing a teacher's voice to be
heard evenly throughout.
"I wouldn't want to discount
the teacher. At the end of the day
that's the most important thing,
but we want to give them the
tools they need," Acevedo said.
"It's much better than the
portables and the old school. It's
got the latest and greatest and the
students and teachers are proud
of it," Dick said. .

Transportation project to beautify
the outdated street.
City Public Works Director
Walter McDowell said Atlantic
Civil Inc. is laying the last struc-
tural course of asphalt, with just
one finishing coat to go. The city
will do minor maintenance to the
new road, raising 24 valves con-
nected with the newly installed
sewer system.
"We went out and marked
them [Thursday]. We'll cut out a
square and raise the valve so
we'll be able to access it when the
road is payed," McDowell said.
Residents of Sombrero Beach
Road have been subject to traffic,
dust and noise from both the
DOT and sewer project construc-
tion going on there for more than
a year.
McDowell said he hopes the
contract will be completed by
May 10 and that work thus far
has been done well and on time.
"The contractor has a no-
excuse contract, so if he's late
there is no excuses. DOT pays a
bonus if you finish early and May
10 is the latest date he can get the
full bonus," he said. "They've
been most accommodating in
doing things that have had to
come up."
The $4.3 million project


began in September and was
expected to last 280 days. It
ranges from Sombrero Boulevard
behind Publix to Avenida
Primiceria near the beach.
Among the scope of improve-
ments: Widening and resurfacing
the road, new stormwater
drainage, a resurfaced bike path,
130-plus old-fashioned-style
light poles and flashing school-
zone beacons at Marathon
Middle and High School.
The bike path has already
been repaved and the swales
between it and the road will like-
ly be sodded some time next
week. Swales were dug all along
the road to combat the prevalent
ponding Sombrero Beach experi-
enced following any heavy rain..
"The water will stand there
and if it overflows it'll run into
catch basins. All it is is a settling
pond, but it's supposed to be gone
in 72 hours," McDowell said,
noting ponding may still occur
during heavy rains.
McDowell said the project
was put on DOT's five-year plan
several years ago and had to work
its way from the bottom up. The
city even pQstponed,the project
so it could complete sewer con-
struction and not be forced to dig
up newly paved roads.
"This has been in the making
for a long time," he said.

Hunter's last day June 19


By ALYSON CREAN

Monroe County Coroner
Michael Hunter says he'll miss
the Keys but he's looking for-
ward-to being closer to extended
family members in Georgia and
Mississippi.
This week, Hunter submitted
his resignation. After six years
with the county, he's accepted
the position of medical examiner
for Bay County in the Panhandle.
The position actually takes in six
counties.
"I've enjoyed my time here,"
Hunter told the Keynoter Friday.

"We've made a home and a lot of
good friends in the six years I've
been here. The relationships I've
had here are excellent, and I'll
miss that."
Ironically, Hunter will leave
as the county's new $4 million
medical-examiner facility is slat-
ed to open on Crawl Key in-mid
June.
When Hunter was hired in
2002, the county promised he
would have the new digs within
months. But hurricanes and other
delays slowed construction, and.
Hunter has been working out of


two funeral homes throughout
his tenure, with the county. The
county leases space in them.
"The fact that the new facility
is about to come on line will be a
great thing to tempt someone
who's a qualified forensic
pathologist," he said. "If I'd left
before now, the county would
have been in a bad position as far
as drawing a qualified replace-
ment."
June 19 is his last day. In the
meantime, Hunter, said he'll do
what he can to ease the transi-
tion.
"I will do everything I can to
help the county," he said. "An
interim medical examiner will be
appointed on my departure, then
a search -committee will be
formed. I think I'll be able to
assist." -
Hunter will step into a busy
workload in Panama City, where
the departing coroner left 34
autopsy reports unfinished. The
delay has held up several insur-
ance payouts because death cer-
tificates cannot be issued until
the autopsies are complete. The
post has been vacant since
December.
The Monroe County Medical
Examiner's Office runs on an
annual budget of about $507,000.
Out of that, Hunter pays his
salary, two full-time staffers, one
part-timer, ,an.d overhead for the.
.department except rent .... -- -

Tier changes delayed


Growth chief
says wrong
criteria used
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
delayed reclassifying 12
Sugarloaf Key land parcels from
extreme environmental sensitivi-
ty to the category easiest to build
in under the county's tier land-
mapping system.
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette asked the commis-'
sion to put off the item, which
was on the agenda of the commis-
sion's regular monthly meeting,
until staff can reevaluate the clas-
sification of all the affected lots.
The decision means another
delay in a longstanding effort by
the county to put into place a sys-
tem of classifying each vacant
parcel of land in the county based
on its environmental sensitivity.
In theory, the tier system
should provide a blueprint for
future development, steering new
construction away from environ-
mentally valuable land and
encouraging limited growth in
areas that are already built up or


scarified.
The lots that were scheduled
for consideration Wednesday
were to be reclassified from the
most sensitive Tier 1 to the easi-
est classification for construction,
Tier 3. However, Trivette asked
for the delay, saying his depart-
ment had recommended the
changes based upon the wrong


The tier
system should
provide a
blueprint
for future
development.


criteria.
They were evaluated, he said,
on a set of criteria drafted in
2006.,
"In 2007 the criteria changed
based on a final order from the
secretary" of the state
Department of Community
Affairs, he said.
Attorney Richard Grosso rep-


resents the Florida Keys Citizens
Coalition and Last Stand, two
environmental organizations that
opposed the tier system and chal-
lenged it through the state's
administrative appeal system.
The groups won the challenge,
and map changes for 148 parcels
are a result of that legal decision.
In a letter to the commission
dated April 16, Grosso lodged his
concern about the way the reclas-
sifications were being handled.
"Those designations cannot be
accomplished in this manner," he
wrote. "The tier designation can
only be changed via the formal-
ordinance adoption process. That
is how the tier maps were adopt-
ed and that is how they must be
amended."
Grosso also took exception to
the changes themselves. Even if a
parcel has no sensitive vegeta-
tion, he said, it might still be clas-
sified as Tier 1 "because of the
impact additional development
on that lot or parcel would have
on an adjacent or nearby natural
area."
Grosso asked the commission
to consider a more comprehen-
sive approach to implementing
the tier system to "bring to an end
the need for major litigation over
the substance of the county's
habitat protection efforts..."

Conch Cafe might be going down


Owner wants
to redevelop
Old Town site
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Changes could soon be com-
ing to Bahama Village's main
commercial intersection if plans
to tear down and redevelop the
Conch Town Cafe and its adjoin-
ing apartments are approved.
The cafe sells traditional
Conch food to tourists and locals
at Petronia and Thomas streets,
across from the restaurant Blue
Heaven and Johnson's Grocery.
"Tourists love the conch,"
restaurant manager Mark
Thompson said after cutting
open a fresh fish in the restau-
rant's kitchen.
Thompson, 29, says he rents
the restaurant space from James
Marsh of Bi-State Realty, whose
plans Thompson says he sup-
ports, whatever they might be.
The project's commercial
endeavor isn't spelled out in
planning documents. All the pro-


posal says is the one-story build-
ing would become 2.5 stories,
with commercial space on the
first floor and two apartments on
the second.
Marsh did indicate to the city
Planning Department he wants
to maintain the take-out restau-
rant design with five porches.
"No owner can promise what
kind of tenants will be on the
property three years from now,"
said Ty Symroski, a consultant
hired for the project.
The property, 801 Thomas
St., is riddled with code viola-
tions, including "unlicensed
restaurant seating, excessive sig-
nage and building without per-
mits," a Planning Department
report states. Marsh told the
Planning Board he inherited
those code violations.
The issue was -tabled at
Thursday night's Planning
Board meeting after interim city
planner Amy Kimball-Murley
said staff didn't have enough
time to review the project and
needs more information. Code
issues also need to be addressed,

Sasha Irenov, 27, talks to his wife Masha while holding his 3-year-old son Behe. The Russian
family would rather not move from its apartment attached to the Conch Town Cafe. The
Planning Board might vote on a proposal to rebuild the structure next month.

staff said.
Two licensed apartments are
on the property, according to the
owner's application. But. three
apartments are on the parcel,
according to some tenants inter-
viewed on the property.
One tenant, Sasha Irenov, 27,
has lived in his apartment for
about three months after moving
from Russia to Key West. Irenov,
a tutor, lives with his wife and 3-
year-old child.

said.
Symroski says that if the proj-
ect is approved, the residential
units would be offline for "a
long time."
The Planning Department
recommends six parking spaces,
while Symroski stresses minimal
parking. He says more bicycle
racks and fewer parking spaces
would encourage fewer people
to drive in a "pedestrian-oriented
area.
"As far as parking goes," he
said. "If you put it in, they will
drive."
The city's Board, of
Adjustment will have to hear


variances about the parking situ-
ation and the oversized girth of
the proposed building.
The Bahama Village redevel-
opment plan calls Petronia Street
the "commercial and activity
spine of the community...," the
applicant's documents state,
though many failed shops along
the strip near Du'val Street
remain vacant.
The Historic Architectural
Review Commission already
approved the plans, saying the
existing structure is not a histor-
ical building.
The Planning Board will hear
the project again in May.

Suspect allegedly
punches, kicks K-9
When a wanted man was run-
ning from Key West police on
Whitehead and Angela streets
Tuesday, police K-9 dog Ferro
was on the chase, according to a
police report.
But construction worker
Quentin Williams, 32, was only.
able to dodge Ferro for a little
while before the dog brought
him down by the arm.
The report says Williams


tried to fight Ferro off by punch-
ing him. By the time an officer
caught up to the mayhem,
Williams was kicking the dog
with both legs, the report says.
After police made the arrest,
Ferro was checked out and
walked away without serious
injuries. Williams, meanwhile,
was charged with violating the
terms of a domestic-violence
protection order, battery on a
police officer and battery on a
police animal.
Since 2001, Williams has
been arrested 12 times.

Keys teachers get


visit from history


Colonial
Williamsburg
comes to life
The Colonial Williamsburg
(Va.) Teacher Institute is coming
to Marathon High School
Thursday and Friday to teach 30
elementary, middle and high
school teachers from the
Monroe County School District
about Colonial life so they can
biing the knowledge back to
their classrooms.
During "Bringing History to
Life in Your Classroom: Ties
That Bind," Colonial
Williamsburg character inter-
preters have the American histo-
ry teachers step back in time and
"meet" some of the historical
figures of the 17th and 18th cen-
turies who helped shape
America.
For example, the character of
Anas Todkill, an English explor-
er, recounts his adventures
exploring 17th Century Virginia
alongside John Smith. George
Washington and his manservant,
Billy Lee, offer their thoughts on
liberty, education and slavery


0i C

ln--r-- i


and their place in the newly
formed United States.
The teachers also will exam-
ine primary sources and facsim-
ile artifacts while learning how
to employ role-playing, demon-
strations, simulations and analy-
sis to make history come to life
for their students. They'll
receive a CD-ROM that contains
lesson plans, facsimile prints
and documents; and a subscrip-
tion to one of Colonial
Williamsburg's distance-learn-
ing, programs, Electronic Field
Trips, broadcast live to class-
rooms across the country during
the school year. '
As a result of the conference,
Colonial Williamsburg staff
hopes teachers return to their
schools with increased historical
knowledge and some new active
methods of engaging students in
learning and, most importantly, a
new understanding of how we
became Americans and our role
as citizens.
District history and social-
sciences specialist Jeanne
Sanford arranged the visit
through a grant.
The Colonial Williamsburg
Foundation is the not-for-profit
educational institution that pre-
serves and operates the restored
18th Century Revolutionary
capital of Virginia as a town-
sizedliving history museum.

Stars," was another sold-out
event in Islamorada. Now, local
dance instructors Jerry and
Virginia LeNoir have opened
Club Baila, a club for ballroom
dancing at the Galleria Mall,
mile marker 81.
The LeNoirs have been in the
ballroom dance world for more
than 20 years. Together, they
competed on a national level and
were four-time undefeated Fred
Astaire national theatrical cham-
pions. They won numerous other
accolades such as United States
Theatrical Silver medalists,
United States Exhibition Bronze
medalists, six-time British
Exhibition finalists and more.
After having their first child,
Lucas, together, they realized
they could no longer live the life
of gypsy dancers. They moved
from Tampa to Islamorada in
2000, where Jerry got a job in
construction and eventually


opened up his own company,
Mangrove Contractors. After
competing one final year, they
officially retired in 2001.
"The last time we competed, I
was five weeks pregnant with
our daughter Ginger," Virginia
LeNoir said. "We were ready to
get off the floor, stop teaching 60
hours a week and spend more
time at home. It takes a huge
commitment of time to compete
on that level."
Last year, the couple was
asked to participate in the first
Dancing with Our Island Stars
event. LeNoir said that they
were pleasantly surprised with
how easy it was to pick up ball-
room dancing where they had
left off. "It was like we had
never really stepped away from
-it," she said. "We were dancing
almost better than we had
before."
The experience left them
ready to come out of retirement.
"My husband said that he wasn't
ready to quit and that he wanted
to do it again," LeNoir said. "He
is very passionate. Anything he
gets a mind to we usually grab a
hold of and go for." .
They rehearsed and competed
at the Florida State
Championships in August in
Sarasota where they were in the
top six. Then, they went on to .
the US Championships in

If this column smells like
Saturday night's champagne,
it's because I sat too close to
the stage for the grand finale of
the Key West Burlesque's
Spring Show at Alexander's
Guest House.
The cast of 11 romped
through skits portraying, with
joyfully slinky teases, the spring
months. "The more you pay us,
the less we wear," in the words
of Frankie, the show's lascivious
lector of lust.
Food figured in this peep-
show picnic luscious drippy
apples, plump pale grapes and
sloppy pudding. It was a new,
slippy-slidey food pyramid.
The standing-room-only show
was staged on a platform over
the Key West guesthouse's pool
and featured elaborate costumes
and props, fantastic Lion King-
meets-Kabuki makeup and
rhythmic music, but relied most-
ly on hold-onto-your-seats imag-
inative dance.
The skits for the ensemble
were largely written and directed
by the lead performer and the

luck suddenly changes for Mavis

side dishes such as the signature
spinach and goose-fat potatoes
or potatoes served pureed,

large selection of accompani-
ments or as garlic-herb French
fries; as well as fried onions,
wild mushrooms, broccoli,
asparagus, creamed com with

According to executive chef
John Schenk, "The restaurant

"Diners are welcome to
share," Schenk says, "and no
plating charge will be added to
the bill" a welcome policy
that will be appreciated by Key

While there, he received Food

Strip House and eventually
moved into his current role with

From his home base in Las

to provide oversight and ensure
quality in all Strip House loca-

the opening and plans to return

Lacrosse team
ends its year
in title game
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer -
kwadlow @keynoter.com

Palmer Trinity intercepted the
Coral Shores Lady Hurricanes'
shot at a district lacrosse champi-
onship.
Palmer pulled away in the
District 4-A title game Thursday
in Tavemier, winning 14-7 in
what was expected to be a battle
of equals.
"We got licked," Coral Shores
coach Mark Hall said. "Give all
credit to Palmer. They play at a
very high skill level, and just beat
us to most of the ground balls."
The season-ending loss still
left the Lady Hurricanes with the
program's best-ever record (6-2
district, 7-6 overall).
The Lady Canes advanced to
the title game with a 12-6 semifi-
nal win over Killian Tuesday,
becoming the first Hurricane
lacrosse squad to score a post-
season victory and play for a dis-
trict championship.
Coral Shores needed fewer
than two minutes to score against
Palmer, Rachel Catanio finding
the net for the first of her four',
goals.
Less than three minutes later,
Brittany Wood (two goals)
looped behind the Falcon net and
scored on the left side.
But Palmer scored 47 seconds
later, tying the game at 2-2.
As the game wore on, Falcon
defenders made it difficult for
Coral Shores to get the ball out of
its own end of the field. The Lady
Falcons intercepted several Coral
Shores passes, maybe as many as
the Canes completed.
While Coral Shores could
only move effectively by running

four passes on a single attack.
Vallerie Ostenson's goal put
Coral Shores ahead, 5-4, for the
last time five minutes before half-
time.

scored its fifth goal. The Falcons
took command with two goals in
the last two minutes of the half,

Stranded runners cost Lady Conchs


Softball team
ends season
in semifinals
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributo

The Key West High School
softball team's season ended
Wednesday afternoon with a
4-3 loss to St. Brendan in the
semifinals of the District 16-
4A tournament in Miami.:
The Conchs, who won their
first district title last season,
needed to win to advance to
the state playoffs. They fin-
ished 8-12 after going 16-13 a
year ago.
Key West had an early 3-0
lead after scoring a run on an
error in the first inning and
adding two in the third on sin-
gles by pitcher Lindsay
Yochum, Lauren Wells, Gigi
Orofino and Brianna Masiello.
The Sabres, playing on
their home field, cut the lead
to 3-2 in their third with a two-
out rally. After Ruth Blandon
singled, Yochum walked the
next two batters before


Allyson Blanco hit a two-run
single.
The score remained 3-2
until the sixth when the Sabres
scored twice on three hits. One
- a blooper over the infield
that scored the tying run -
was just out of the diving
reach of left fielder Kristen
Babich. Another was an
infield pop that Yochum just
missed catching.
With runners at first and
second and one out, third
baseman Madison Disson
fielded a grounder and threw
to shortstop Jianna Hernandez,
who covered third to get a
force-out. But the next batter
singled to score what turned
out to be the winning run.
Coach David Gootee
remained confident until the
end.
"I always believe that our
players can rise to the occa-
sion, right up to the last swing
of the bat," he said.
That came from freshman
CeCe Cervantes with the bases
empty and two outs in the sev-
enth. Her line drive down the


right field line was caught
spectacularly by the right
fielder. If the play hadn't been
made, "it would have been an
inside-the-park home run
because they didn't have an
outfield fence," Gootee said.
St. Brendan senior pitcher
Tamara Hidalgo, who beat
Key West for the second time
in less than two weeks,
allowed nine hits but the
Conchs failed too often in the
clutch. They left 11 runners on
base.
Yochum allowed five hits
and had two herself. For the
season, she pitched 131
innings, had a 1.96 ERA and
struck out 64. She also hit
.393, second to Wells' .433.
Both will return next sea-
son, as will 13 other players.
"The next three years look
very promising," said Gootee,
who completed his second
season as coach, assisted by
Bill Baker, Alan Averette and
David Averette.
Tears flowed after
Wednesday's final out.
"Tears are a gift from God
to soothe the hurts in life,"
Gootee said. "It always hurts


when you fall short of your
goal."
"Almost all the girls were
crying," Yochum said. "The
seniors [Babich, Hernandez
and Orofino] had some inspi-


rational words for the younger
girls and we wished them
good luck."
The Conchs then dined at
Benihana and took the last
long bus ride home.

Coral Shores stopped in semis


Leopold, Lichvar
go furthest
for the Canes
Coral Shores High School's
top doubles team reached the
semifinals of the District 16-
2A doubles bracket before
being stopped by eventual
champion Gulliver Prep.
The doubles success by
Annie Leopold, and Simona
Lichvar was the high-water
mark for both the Hurricane
girls and boys teams at the
April 11 district event.
For Lichvar, who played
No. 1 singles after Allison
Rhyne was sidelined by a knee
injury, the district meet
marked her last match for
Coral Shores before gradua-
tion. She is the only senior on
the girls roster.


"The girls faced some
obstacles early," coach Blake
Fry said, "but had a very suc-
cessful [9-4] season."
"Simona answered the call
and played the No. 1 singles
position to finish a tremendous
high school career," Fry said.
"The entire team picked up the
slack, moved up the lineup and
performed very well."
The Lady Hurricanes fin-
ished fourth in team standings
at the nine-team district match,
played at Tropical Park.
Coral Shores' boys all
reached the quarterfinals at the
district meet. "They worked
hard all season and made a
great showing at districts," Fry
said.
The Hurricane boys fielded
three first-year players this
spring and didn't win a team
match. "This group of young
men never quit," Fry said.

well, but was stymied several
times by the Westminster
defense.
Tuesday, the Dolphins earned
the right to play in the final by
defeating Palmer Trinity 10-5
behind a solid complete game
effort by freshman starter Alli
Heller.
"She had good control the
whole game and was in com-
mand of her pitches. I don't
think she walked anybody,"
Murphy said.
Senior Melanie Boyd had a
solid game defensively and at
the plate. Boyd went. 2-for-3
with two doubles and handled a
lineup filled with slap-bunters


well at third base.
* "Once we settled down and
got used to their slap hitters we
started jumping on the ball and
made the plays," Murphy said.
Shelby Kuck was 2-for-4 in
the game with a home run, while
Jeannette Betancourt was 1-for-
1 with a walk and Kelley Struyf
was 1-for-2 with a double.
The Dolphins actually trailed
4-2 after two innings, but
Murphy said a breakout third
inning settled the team and it
.cruised to victory.
"In the third we batted
through [the entire lineup]. They
really broke open the score for
us and after that we played real-
ly consistently," she said.
