The local chapter of the

array of veterans from the 3911

Keys sewer funds


The next move
is full vote

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Another hurdle is out of the
way and Monroe County is a bit
closer to receiving $200 million
in state sewer bonds.
Monday, the House Policy
and Budget Council unanimous-
ly approved funding vital to
complete sewer construction


under a state mandate to clean
up'nearshore waters.
"It's the right thing to do, for
the state to help," County
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro said.
Di Gennaro is the commis-
sion's liaison with Tallahassee
and says he's been pushing to try
to bring home state funding to
offset the estimated $500 million
cost of sewering all of the Keys.

FEMA list halts


family's home plans


Cunninghams
hoped to build
on Ramrod Key
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

One by one, vacant and
buildable lots in the Keys are
being removed from "the list."
But for some people, the extra
roadblock to building a new.
home might be the deal breaker.
For Ramrod Key resident
Michael Cunningham and his
family, the length of time it


took to get their land off the list
of parcels ineligible for flood
insurance means they might not
be able to build, even though
the land was removed from the
list at the end of March.
"We won't be breaking
ground until we can sell our
current home," he said.
' While he was filing the
paperwork required to get off
the list, the real estate market
tanked. Now selling that home
won't be easy.

committee stop on the House
side. Last week it was approved
by the House Environmental &
Natural Resources Council.
Now the proposal, which is
part of a larger funding package
for Everglades restoration, must
pass the entire House. An identi-
cal bill is before the Senate.
The bill authorizes a bond of
$50 million a year over the next
four years.
The money, if realized, would
"be divided based upon which
Keys sewer authority needs it
first and which is ready to use it,
Di Gennaro said.
"Distribution will be based


on who needs it, and it will be
worked out among all of the
entities," he said. "This is for the
whole county based on need."
He said that means the money
could help the municipalities as
well as unincorporated Monroe
County and the Key Largo sewer
district.
State representatives Ron
Saunders from Key West and
Stan Mayfield, chairman of the
Environmental & Natural
Resources Council, are champi-
oning the amendment.
The Keys face a July 2010
deadline for having the entire
county connected to advanced
wastewater systems. County
officials have worked to keep
the expense from landing square


on the backs of taxpayers but
unless more state and federal
money is earmarked, residents
may be looking at upward of
$20,000 to hook up to sewers.
The county has passed an
ordinance to keep individual
hook up fees at $4,500. The state
money would help keep those
costs in line.
Di Gennaro said a united
front by all the local entities is
part of what has convinced law-
makers to back the funding bill.
"What's most important is
that we stand all together," he
said. "That's what impressed
them in Tallahassee. Before
now, everyone used to go up and
fight on their own for the
money."


FEMA list has a human face


FEMA / From 1

In 2005, U.S. District Court
Judge K. Michael Moore placed
an injunction on the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, freezing the agency
from issuing flood insurance
policies for new construction
where there is endangered
species habitat.
FEMA administers the
National Flood Insurance
Program and is the only provider
in the county. And since because
banks require flood insurance if
a mortgage is issued, the injunc-
tion nearly stopped new residen-
tial development in the Keys.
Moore's injunction stemmed
from a 15-year-old lawsuit filed
by three environmental groups,
the National Wildlife
Federation, Florida Wildlife
Federation and Defenders of
Wildlife. It alleged FEMA and
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
were not following the federal
Endangered Species Act that
prohibits development in areas
that are home to endangered
species.
Shortly after Moore issued
the injunction, Fish & Wildlife
submitted to the court a list of
nearly 50,000 Keys parcels
where flood insurance should be
prohibited to comply with the
order. The problem was, many
of those lots had no critical habi-
tat. In fact, many of them were
already developed. So since
then, the list has been pared

slowly ,down. Now a little more
than 14,000 remain on the list.
For people like the
Cunninghams, that erroneous
listing has been costly.
He owns four lots on Ramrod
Key. The family's plans were to
combine two and build a roomi-
er house for their growing fami-
ly and use the. other two as a
retirement investment.
"Our 1,000-square-foot home
is too small for my wife and two
children," Cunningham said.
"One of our kids is sleeping in
the [home] office."


He says it's hard enough for a
young family to make it in the
Keys. But suddenly finding his
property on some vague list that
stymied his plans was an unex-
pected frustration.
"It's hard enough for young
people to put down roots," he
said. He and wife Jo-anne have
been married for 14 years. Their
kids are ages 3 and 5.
Cunningham is executive
director of the Florida Area
Health Education office in

Di Gennaro wants 'Vandy' extension


Winter's now
target time
for scuttling
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West and Monroe County
officials say the May 15 target
date to sink the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg seven miles off Key
West as an artificial reef isn't
realistic, and some who have
invested in the project now say
the 520-foot retired military ves-
sel could be scuttled by winter.
"I think the new deadline to try
and move it down here is
December," County
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro
said.
He said he'll push for a six-
month deadline extension from
the Tourist Development Council
and County Commission for its


$2 million pledged contribution.
"If they. need more time, I'm
willing to work with them," Di
Gennaro said. "We have to find
ways to start raising money in
this county, not raising taxes. The
county should start thinking out-
side the box."
Despite financial setbacks and
unmet deadlines, advocates of
the Vandenberg sinking insist it
will happen and benefit the Keys'
economy.
"It's not dead," Key West City
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
"A May deadline is not possible,
but it doesn't mean it's not possi-
ble to make a future deadline."
Verge, project liaison for the
city, said he hopes the ship can
sink sometime this summer
rather than winter, but it depends
on funding issues that lead up to
Tallahassee.
In the Legislature state Rep.


Stan Mayfield added a line item
to a bill that would provide $1.1
million for the project.
Verge said he's had many tele-
conference calls with banks,
including BB&T Bank, that.have
invested loans in the project, and
they will continue paying
$20,000 dockage fees in Norfolk,
Va., where the vessel is currently
docked. BB&T Bank was at one
time considering pulling its
loans.
"We've been talking to them
very amicably for six weeks,"
Verge said. "We're all on friendly
relations right now, trying to
make this happen."
Earlier this month, the ship-
yard working on the Vandenberg
filed a lien against it and
Reefmakers, one of the compa-
nies coordinating the project.
Colonna's Shipyard Inc.
requested a lien of $1.64 million
in unpaid repair and cleaning
bills. The city holds the ship's


title.
"They're indicating they're
flexible," Verge said. An attorney
for. the shipyard couldn't be
reached.
The project is also 40 percent
over 2006 cost estimates, in need
of an extra $2.4 million.
Verge says there's no need to


worry about the project dying.
And he said investors including
the county, city and TDC aren't at
risk because they cannot release
funding until the ship is sunk.
According to Verge, the U.S.
Coast Guard doesn't want the
vessel at its pier after June 1 -
the start of hurricane season.

Infantry Brigade, was in Key
West to formally promote Wise
from specialist to sergeant.
"What remains forever in our
memory is a memory of a war-
rior and his pride as a soldier,"
Perryman said. He was an hon-
orable man, devoted to family,
who continues to serve as a role
model."
The posthumous honor con-
tinues the attention garnered by
this remarkable young man who
went to school in Key West
through middle school, then
moved to Tallahassee, where he
spent his high school years
involved with the ROTC.
He graduated in 2000 and
joined the Florida National
Guard. After the terrorist attacks
of Sept. 11, 2001, Wise was
called into active duty and sent
to Iraq.
Wise was killed in Baghdad
when his vehicle hit an impro-
vised explosive device. A year
after his death, he was one of 14
young war casualties whose let-
ters home were featured in an
HBO special and accompanying
book titled "Last Letter Home:
Voices of Americans from the
Battlefield of Iraq."
Shortly after the airing of the


HBO special, a plaque was
unveiled at Horace O'Bryant
Middle School in Wise's honor.
Robert's father David, who
Tuesday accepted the promotion
and the framed decree, said he's
adopted the entire group of local
cadets as his own. He said he
was especially proud and hon-
ored that Perryman made the trip
to the Keys for the presentation;
usually such an event is usually
held in Tallahassee.
"This give Robert a chance to
serve as inspiration for the local
students," Wise said. "It helps


them see that you're not forgot-
ten. Even though Robert is not
here physically, his essence is
here."
Perryman is retiring at the
end of the month but said he
wanted to come to Key West and
personally make the presenta-
tion for Wise since he command-
ed Wise's brigade at the time of
his death.
The promotion was signed by
Gov. Charlie Crist, who serves
as commander in chief of the
Florida National Guard.

Rowell's back on the market


Sale follows
failed attempt
at development
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The view a vast green
space leading to a dazzling
Florida Bay vista beyond the
"For Sale" sign on the chain-link
fence reminds why the former
Rowell's Marina property so
captivates many Key Largo resi-
dents.
An eight-acre property that


launched uncounted hours of
meetings on transferable devel-
opment rights and community
character has gone back on the
market.
Asking price is $9.75 million.
It's the second bayfront par-
cel on the island offered for sale
this year after plans for expen-
sive condominium projects were
stalled by development debates
before being killed by the South
Florida real estate slump.
A spokesman for Boca
Developers, which envisioned
136 high-end units on the
Rowell's site at mile marker

Developers' most ambitious

A prospectus on the Key

Sperry Van Ness, a commercial
realty firm, cites the eight acres
with a 560-foot stretch of water-
front.
It also notes some of the
issues that entangled Boca
Developers, namely problems
with developing working water-
front and a lack of rights to build
market-rate housing.
"Depending on whether the
[waterfront] moratorium is con-
tinued, it may be a requirement
to support and maintain. the

The former Rowell's Marina in Key Largo generated heated
debate when Boca Developers tried to develop 136 units on
the site in return for some affordable housing on Big Pine Key.
Fierce public opposition killed the deal.


agent did not return a call .from
the Keynoter.
Boca Developers purchased
the Seahorse RV Park on Big
Pine Key and planned to offer
the county an affordable-hous-
ing project there if it could trans-
fer building rights to the
Rowell's site.
That proposal, not allowed
under current county law, met
stem opposition from Key Largo
community groups in 2006.
The transfer offer from Boca
Developers was "squashed a
long, long time ago," Monroe
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy said this week.
When it was learned that
Rowell's Marina owners were in
sale negotiations, community
residents urged the County
Commission to consider buying
the site as a public park with
water access.
"Ours basically was a back-
up position" to the Boca
Developers sale, said John
Stuart, who met with site owner
'Charlie Rowell and county offi-
cials. "But the [Boca] deal went
through. Our proposal never
really got off the ground."
State and local governments
all'are" facing,'a budget crisis; -so.


a public purchase anywhere near
the $9.75 million asking price
seems far-fetched, Stuart said.
"It's one of those things
where 20 years from now, peo-
ple will wish something had
happened, but from a financial
standpoint, I'd be surprised if
the county even considered it
now."
"It's unfortunate. Down the
road, people will complain
about a lack of vision," Stuart
said. -"But there's also a lack of
cash."
Up U.S. 1 from Rowell's,
another bayfront parcel at the
former Kelly's On the Bay motel
and Hobo's Marina site went to
bankruptcy auction last month.
Sperry Van Ness posted
information suggesting the
marker 104.2 site changed hands
March 10 for $7.4 million for
possible development as a
"condo hotel."
The listed-agent for Philrich
of Key Largo, Jthe Fort
Lauderdale mortgage holder on
the Hobo's site, could not be
contacted.

The Seahorse remains, for now


It was part
of planned
Rowell's swap
Keynoter Staff

The remaining residents of the
Seahorse RV Park on Big Pine
Key are in a holding pattern fol-
lowing a flurry of worry in 2006
when eviction notices went out to
the entire park.
Many left but affordable hous-
ing advocate Bill Loewy says
many are still there. The park has
100 units.
Boca Developers purchased
the Seahorse in 2006 for $7.85


million. It acquired the former
Rowell's Marina in Key Largo
for $65 million in 2005.
For several months after the
Seahorse purchase, Boca
Developers tried to convince the
Monroe County Commission to
approve a development agree-
ment that would allow the trans-
fer of building rights from Big
Pine to Key Largo.
In return, the developer prom-
ised a number of different varia-
tions on a theme, all including
affordable housing to replace the
trailers at Seahorse so it could
build high-end housing at the
Rowell's site.

New permit system
gets airing Thursday
The Key West City
Commission and. Planning
Department are hosting a
Thursday workshop from 5 to 7
p.m. at Old City Hall, 510
Greene St., to address the city's
building permit allocation system
for development and redevelop-.
ment, both market-rate and
affordable.
According to city Planner
Amy Kimball-Murley, the intent


of the meeting is for the public to
share its input on how to draft a
fair and equitable allocation sys-
tem.
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Wayne Miller ruled in
February that the rate-of-growth
ordinance, which was the alloca-
tion system, expired in 2002. It
allocated a specific number of
permits based upon hurricane
evacuation times.
In. response, the City
Commission enacted a six-month
freeze on development except for
affordable housing.


The deal never materialized.
But since the kerfuffle, the coun-
ty has enacted an ordinance that
takes a lot of the guesswork out
of moving building rights from
one parcel to another. The ordi-
nance limits transfers to within
geographic regions of the Keys.
For example, Lower Keys build-
ing rights have to stay in the
Lower Keys.
Meanwhile, the housing mar-
ket has tanked and Boca


Developers is having serious
financial problems. Rowell's is
now on the market. It's unclear if
the Seahorse is, too.
And Wachovia Bank last week
filed for foreclosure on Boca
Developers' most ambitious proj-
ect, a planned redevelopment of
the Las Olas Riverfront complex
in Fort Lauderdale.
The Miami Herald reported
liens have been filed against other
Boca Developers projects as well.

Mainland counties

told to get in step

Tuesday was the official Earth Day observance, but Keys
events have been happening all month.
Over the weekend, Cheeca Lodge and Spa held its annual
Earth Day observance, spelling out in colorful sand sculptures
this year's message: Living Green is the Key..
Cross-country cyclists were given an Earth Day welcome
Tuesday at Bayview Park in Key West and beach cleanup
were held throughout the Keys over the weekend.
But perhaps the biggest and best possible Earth Day celebra-
tion didn't get much notice at all.
It happened last week in Tallahassee when the Florida Senate
voted unanimously to end ocean dumping of partially treated
sewage in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
The House was expected to pass a companion bill this week.
State Sen. Burt Sanders, R-Naples, gets credit for pushing to
end this scandalous practice, whichAas allowed Florida's most
densely populated region to use the ocean as an effluent dump
for decades.
As the bill is currently written, the Legislature mandates
tougher treatment standards by 2018 and a deadline to end all
ocean outfall dumping by 2025.
The legislation also calls on water and sewer authorities in those
three counties to recycle at least 60 percent of the water they now
dump at sea which adds up to 300 million gallons a day.
Ending this ocean dumping is welcome news in the Keys,
which has been a victim of nutrient dumping from the main-
land for decades.
"We know this wastewater damages coral reefs and diverse
ocean wildlife," notes Reef Relief Executive Director DeeVon
Quirolo, who laments the history of "polluted water dumped
along Florida's reef tract."
Besides damaging reefs, this practice also squanders precious
freshwater resources, constantly threatened by over develop-
ment on the mainland.
Excluding the three urban counties just to our north, statewide
water reuse has already reached the 60 percent mark compared
to a miserable 6 percent reuse in those three counties.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, reporting on the
Legislature's action, quotes a utilities director for the city of
Hollywood as saying that tougher treatment standards will
increase monthly sewer bills there by $50 to $90.
Knowing the average sewer bills now facing Keys property
owners and our state-mandated 2010 deadline to put in place
advanced wastewater treatment, we don't find much sympathy
for further stalling by our urban neighbors.
The very best Earth Day will come when that ocean dumping
ends permanently.

We can be a whole lot more green


EDITOR:
With all this talk about going green, I haven't
seen too much of it going on locally. When was the
last time you saw anyone carrying their groceries
or any purchases in anything but plastic or paper
bags? Why not get yourself a sturdy canvas tote
that you can re-use over and over again, or at least
re-use doubled paper bags? Bring your own bag.
Americans reportedly use an estimated 100
billion plastic bags a year, consuming 12 million
barrels in oil. Not only does plastic not decom-
pose in landfills readily, but look how many are
floating all over parking lots and roadsides. Think
ocean and bay waters.
- There is a chain of stores in the Southeast that
is very eco-friendly. For every bag you bring in to
,bag your groceries, you get 10 cents back. Let's
see, you go shopping how many days a year?
How many bags do you use? You do the math.
Pakistan and Eritrea have banned them out-
right, as has the capital of Bangladesh and some
regions in India. Three years ago, the Republic of
Ireland initiated the Plastax, a 15-cent-per-bag tax
levied on shoppers. Within a year of its imple-
mentation, the tax reduced .the country's con-


sumption of plastic shopping bags (approximate-
ly 1.2 billion annually) by 90 percent and raised
10 million in euros, which were spent on envi-
ronmental programs.
Don't even get me started on the over-use of
water bottles. Come on, people, let's go buy one
fun bottle and re-fill it.
The sewer system in the Keys is uncon-
scionable. Islamorada alone is planning on bor-
rowing $115 million to finish putting in the sewer
system. Just how many toilets are being flushed
in the Keys every day? And we won't even go
into how many in hotels and motels add to our
waste. Ever heard of composting toilets? They've
come a long way in the past few years. No smell,
no muss or fuss, and believe it or not, it is great
compost for your gardens, too. Google it, learn
from it, use it.
I could go on, but you get the idea. Come on,
citizens of the Keys, let's start taking care of our
Keys. They are not self-sustaining with the\way
we live our lives now.

Sewer assessment unfair to all residents


EDITOR:
Earlier this month, the Marathon City Council
decided to apply sewer assessments to the 2008
property tax rolls in two service areas only: Area
4 and Area 6. The amount to be charged ($6,000-
plus per equivalent dwelling unit) will be identi-
cal in the other five service areas, where it will
eventually appear on the 2009 tax bills.
The hired expert, Weiler Engineering, dis-
played its timetable in chart form, which shows
construction completion dates as follows:
Area 1, November 2009.
Area 2, June 2009 (Boot Key, may scrap
plan).
Area 3, October 2009.
Area 4, October 2009.
Area 5, December 2010 (Little Venice.
already complete).
Area 6, March 2009.
*Area-7, April 2010.
So residents and businesses in Areas 1 and 3
will also receive city sewer service within 12
months of the 2008 property tax rolls (the guide-
line previously articulated by the council), yet
they escape their assessment for an additional 12
months .'This is not fair, and property owners in
Areas 4 and 6 are rightly indignant about this
puzzling, poorly explained discrimination against
them.
They should turn out to voice their dismay in
force at the April 29 scheduled council meeting,
and also send e-mails in protest to the five coun-
cil members in the interim. The city should either
assess all four areas in 2008 or also delay Areas
4 and 6 until 2009.
Although Weiler officials testified at the coun-
cil meeting that Area 3 will soon be ready for,
construction bids, council members Marilyn
Tempest, Mike Cinque and Don Vasil argued
against its inclusion in the 2008 tax rolls.
Tempest doesn't believe the Weiler timetable is


achievable (why so little confidence in its expert-
ise?). Other councilors wanted to stick to the
assessment plan that predated their recent deci-
sion to go all out to sewer the whole city without
delay. Why? The timetable was on the screen
throughout their discussion.
Area 1 is Knight's Key, where planning is
complete. It is up to the city staff and the coun-
cilors (hot Weiler) to pressure Earthmark to
revise its delayed development agreement and
lease or donate the sewer plant site on its proper-
ty to the city so that the short six-month con-
struction period can begin.
Citizens of Marathon are now witnessing
another in the long list of errors and bad judg-
ments applied to the significantly delayed sewer
project by our city councilors. Makes you want
to cry.

Which will be the first to $4 a gallon?


EDITOR:
Welcome to the Great Marathon
Derby Gas Station Race. Which will
be that first station to reach that cov-
eted $4-a-gallon plateau? The stations
are lined up in the starting gate, all
keyed up and rarin' to go.
At the pole position, it's heavily
favored Fairway Market. In gate No.
2 is Dions South, thought to be a seri-
ous challenger to Fairway Market. In
gate-No. 3 is a stable mate of Dions
South, Dions North, also expected to
give the field a run for its money.
In gate No. 4 another serious chal-
lenger, Citgo North, reportedly
owned by Venezuelan dictator Hugo
Chavez. And in gate No. 5 is a stable
mate of Citgo North, Citgo South.
Gate No. 6 hosts the latest entry in
the Great Race, Tom Thumb, and
rounding out the field in gate No. 7 is
the long shot, Circle K.
And they're off!
Fairway Market jumps out in front
with a 10-cent lead, followed closely


be Dions South. In third is Citgo
North, followed by the rest of the field
with Tom Thumb stuck in the rear.
As they round the first turn it's
Fairway Market and Dions South
neck and neck at $3.49.9 a gallon
with Dions North a close 1 cent
behind. The rest of the field is slowly
creeping up as they thunder toward
the halfway pole.
But wait here comes Tom
Thumb slowly pulling out of the rear
and making his move. He just passed
Circle K and Citgo North and South,
dropping Circle K in the rear at
$3.39.9 a gallon.
Fairway Market has regained the
lead at $3.65.9 a gallon and is show-
ing signs of getting stronger as the
race goes on, but it's early in the race
and anything can happen,.so stay
tuned for the exciting conclusion of
the Great Marathon Derby Gas
Station Race.

Tell lawmakers no cuts for youth services


EDITOR:
When times are tough, we often
look for ways to stretch our budget a
little farther to meet our daily needs.
We evaluate the circumstances to make
the best decisions possible for our fami-
lies and loved ones. The same rings true
for Florida's leaders who, right now,
have a lot of difficult decisions to make
concerning our state budget.
What they may not realize, howev-
er, is that the answer lies right before
them. It's not often the most effective
and most economical options are one
and the same but when it comes to
preventing child abuse, it just happens
to be the case.
Our dollars go further and families
are healthier sooner when prevention
services like parenting and coping
skills are provided in our communi-
ties. In addition, during these difficult
times there is an increase for food-
stamp benefits, temporary cash assis-
tance for needy families and
Medicaid, and a further need for staff
to process applications and get these
services to those in rieed.
A study by Prevent Child Abuse
America and the Pew Charitable Trusts
estimated the economic impact of child
abuse and neglect to be $103.8 billion
in 2007 alone. Nationwide, we spent
$33 billion in direct costs for foster-care
services, hospitalization, mental-health
treatment and law enforcement. For the
same year, more than $70 billion was
spent on indirect costs, including chron-
ic health problems, special-education
needs and criminal justice services.
In Miami-Dade and Monroe coun-
ties, we have approximately 100,000

Mayor ends
speculation,
runs again
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The political guessing ended
Monday when incumbent
Republican Sonny McCoy
announced he's seeking a third
four-year term on the Monroe
County Commission.
"It's been a steady stream of
people asking me to do it," he
said Tuesday. "They get me at my
office, at my house, on the street.
They say I've been productive
and accomplished things and they
want to make sure that when
there's a transition, it will be
orderly."
McCoy's entry into the race
means a Republican primary in
August since contender Carlos
Rojas changed parties.
Rojas announced his intention
to run for the District 3 seat sev-
eral weeks ago, as a Democrat.
After Democrat Heather
Carruthers announced she, too, is
running for the seat, Rojas
changed his affiliation to
Republican.
McCoy served five terms as

McCOY Key West
resident Sloan Bashinsky is also
running. He claims no party affil-
iation.
Two other seats are also up for
election on the County
Commission this year.
The District 1 seat held by
Republican Dixie Spehar has
already attracted three candi-
dates. Spehar plans to seek re-
election. Republican Kim
Wigington is challenging her as
she did in 2004.


Democrat Bill Estes is also run-
ning for the seat. He's chairman
for the Monroe County
Democratic Executive Committee.
The District 5 seat is also on
the ballot, and Republican
incumbent Sylvia Murphy is
seeking reelection. She'll see an
August primary since her one
announced challenger, Gary
Bauman, is also a Republican.
Key Largo incumbent Marilyn
'Beyer also announced her inten-
tion this week to run again for
seat 5 on the Key Largo Fire and
Emergency Medical Services
District board.
The five-day candidate quali-
fying period begins June 16 for
all local candidates except those
running for judge. That qualify-
ing period runs April 28 through
May 2.
The primary will be held on
Aug. 26; the general election is

Laundry might dry up


Farmer weighs
sewer cost as
work progresses
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon residents may find
themselves scrambling for a
place to wash their clothes if
Maytag Clean Laundry owner
Donna Farmer is forced to shut
her doors.
Farmer said costs associated
with the city's sewer system
could potentially be too high for
her to handle and force her to
close the last public laundry in
the city.
"I was keeping up with the
other laundry when she was
going through it and I didn't see
where it was possible for that
kind of money to be afforded,"
Farmer said, referring to the for-


mer Coins Laundry in Little
Venice, which has already been
sewered.
"I'm just waiting to find out
what they decide and if they
decide something affordable, I'll
stay open and if they don't I
won't," she said.
Farmer's laundry lies on the
edge of Area 4 of the city sewer
project, which was the first area
to begin construction. Weiler
Engineering's Mike Giardullo
said Area 4 is expected to be
completed by November 2009,
with the area near the laundry
slated for construction between
April and July 2009.
City Community Services
Director Susie Thomas said
assessments for commercial
properties have yet to be deter-
mined. The city has hired

determine the cost per equivalent

dwelling unit, or EDU.
"Commercial properties will
pay EDIJs based on their water
usage. We'll take the last three
years water and average it out and
they'll pay based on their water
consumption," Thomas said.
Farmer said based on her usage
when Little Venice was being
sewered, her laundry would have
faced a $185,000 hookup fee.
Boot Key Harbor residents
Connie Rosenthal and Dick Van
Buren each do their laundry at the
Maytag and said its closing
would pose a major problem for
members of the liveaboard com-
munity.
Rosenthal said the City of
Marathon Marina offers only three
washers and three dryers, "and the
dryers take two go-arounds at
least." Also, it's open only to those
who pay marina fees.
"I can't tell you how many
times I've thought about, if I had
the money, opening another
Laundromat," she said. "The
need is there."
Van Buren said he's done his
laundry at the Maytag once a
week the past three to four years.
He said it would be disappointing
if the laundry were to shut down.


"It's too crowded [at the mari-
na]. I have to be there at 6 a.m.
basically. Here, I can come any-
time," he said.
Farmer said she feels the need
for a laundry will always be
there, though it may reduce when
the sewer system is online.
"The different hotels, espe--
cially the ones turning into
condo-type hotels, are pretty
much self-contained," she said.
"Some of my customers live in


housing where washers are not
allowed because of drainage situ-
ations."
All that might change, Farmer
said, when the sewer system is
complete. She has also offered a
wash-and-fold service.
"We've maintained a valuable
service for a long time. I would
love to be able to maintain it for
the customers, but if it's not
affordable, I'll have to close it
down," she said.

Report to detail energy savings


Green Team
presentation
is on Tuesday
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The city of Marathon's "Green
Team" is set to present results
from an audit of government
energy use and emissions at
Tuesday's City Council meeting.
The Green Team, an informal
advisory panel to the city, studied
power use in fiscal year 2005-06
for both city buildings and other
city sites, automobile use,
employee commuting and power
consumption by streetlights and
signals. It makes recommenda-
tions in the report by which the
city can streamline its operations;
some cost nothing, while others
are considered major capital
expenditures.
"We want the city to reduce its
energy consumption and thereby
... help Marathon be a part of a


worldwide effort to stop global
warming," Green Team
Chairman Michael Welber said.
"A secondary goal would be for
the city to show some leadership
in the community. If [residents]
see the city showing leadership,
they'll do it too."
Mayor Pete Worthington is
expected to introduce a resolution
calling for residents to do five
things to help save the planet:
Plant a tree in their yard, take a
reusable bag to the supermarket,
change an incandescent bulb to a
new compact fluorescent, turn up
their thermostats by two degrees
and recycle.
The first 20 residents to show
up to the meeting, which starts at
5:30 p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center, will receive
extra motivation to achieve these
goals in the form of a free native
tree and reusable bag. The trees
are courtesy of John Pennekamp
Coral Reef State Park and Publix
donated the bags.

Rabbit workshop
set for Thursday

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service's Marsh Rabbit
Integrated Predator Management
Plan workgroup meets from 7 to
9:30 p.m. Thursday at the Big
Pine Key United Methodist
Church, 280 Key Deer Blvd., Big
Pine.
The National Key Deer
Refuge is preparing a manage-
ment plan to protect the endan-
gered Lower Keys marsh rabbit


and other wildlife, and wants
agency and community members
to participate.
An initial workshop was held
April 3. Another is planned for
May 8. A final "consensus"
workshop is planned for June 19.
A summary of the April 3
meeting and related materials is
available at http://consensus
.fsu.edul/LKMR/index.html.
For more information, contact
refuge Manager Anne Morkill at
872-2239 or anne_morkill@
fws.gov.


The Green Team used soft-
ware provided by the
International Council for Local
Environmental Initiatives to
determine the city's energy use.
"We're asking [council] to ask
the city manager to implement
the recommendations that don't
cost anything right now," Welber
said. "The resolution will also
direct staff to work the with
Green Team to put items with
moderate cost into next year's
budget."
Some of the items that require


no additional investment by the
city: Use of biodiesel fuel in
trucks and ambulances, printed
signs at the city marina and city
offices reminding people to turn
lights off, teaching staff to use
econo-mode on printers and
printing on each side of paper.
Big-ticket items down the
road include a foam coating on
the roof at the new fire station,
tankless water heaters at the mari-
na and converting from paper
towel to hand dryers citywide.
As Welber said, each resident


can address many .items in the
report.
"A lot of these are things that
can be done by individuals. Even
though it is costing them money,
they just don't think about it," he
said.

Another code complaint for dolphin site


Powers files
on own property
over the MMC
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The owner of a Key Largo
parcel used as a marine-mammal
rehabilitation site filed a code-
enforcement complaint against
his own property Tuesday.
The complaint sent by John
Powers of Colorado to Monroe
County Code Enforcement
offices in Marathon says property
.at mile marker 102.2 still has
numerous unpermitted and unap-
proved structures and construc-


tion.
A previously scheduled code-
enforcement case against JPB
Properties, headed by Powers, is
on the agenda of a Thursday
Code Enforcement hearing in
Marathon.
At press time, county staff
said there was a possibility the
hearing could be continued to a
later date.
Powers said he is frustrated
that the site leaseholder, the
Marine Mammal Conservancy,
has been allowed to continue
operations while his firm faces
fines for ongoing code violations
created by the conservancy.
"Imagine you are a property
owner with a renegade tenant and


have won a judgment against the
tenant," Powers said Monday.
"How would you feel about
Monroe County not helping to
maintain your rights to keep the
property safe?"
Powers said after Monroe
County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia
ruled April 10 that the Marine
Mammal Conservancy, is in vio'-
lation of its lease, he sent a state-
licensed inspector to look at the
property earlier this week.
The inspector, who had a letter
of authorization from Powers,
-reportedly was told to leave the
property by an MMC officer.
, The inspector told Powers that
a Sheriff's Office deputy also told
him to leave.
"That was very disappointing,
and I don't understand it,"
Powers said. "The inspector trav-
eled from Tallahassee."
In his ruling, stemming from a
lawsuit the MMC filed against
Powers, Garcia withheld "an
immediate writ of possession"
pending a hearing on other issues.
Powers said he had no idea
whether the second hearing has
been scheduled.
The MMC had sued JPB
Properties, charging the owner

refused to honor a lease agree-
ment to sell the bayfront property
to the nonprofit group for
$458,000 for use as marine-mam-
mal rehabilitation site.
Garcia agreed with the
owner's contention that MMC
defaulted on other lease terms
involving unpermitted construc-
tion and land use.
"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," Garcia wrote, "and
all the improvements offered in
lieu of rent are presently in viola-
tion of the Monroe County
Code."
Powers was an early supporter
of the MMC and its rescue efforts
for dolphins and whales. He
soured on the organization after
its board dismissed Rick Trout,
an anti-captivity activist who
served as JPB's liaison with the
conservancy.

LaTorre


DUI trial


starts

Former county
director faces
felony count
Keynoter Staff

Jury selection finished and
opening arguments were made
Tuesday in the trial of former
Monroe County Social Services
Director Louis LaTorre.
LaTorre faces a felony charge
of driving under the influence-
serious bodily injury and a mis-
demeanor charge of DUI-prop-
erty damage stemming from a
serious Lower Keys crash two
years ago.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol at the time,
LaTorre, 60, was driving a 2006
Honda southbound on U.S. 1 in
the wrong lane April 15, 2006.
Then-33-year-old Nadezda
Bowman was driving a 2004
Honda north when LaTorre's car
collided with hers head-on at
mile marker 8 at 2:44 a.m.
It took an hour to remove
Bowmanri from her car using the
Jaws of Life, according to the
FHP.
LaTorre was arrested May
31,2006.
In his opening argument,
Assistant Monroe County State
Attorney Manny Madruga said
LaTorre's blood alcohol level
was shown to be above legal
limits in two separate tests.
Defense attorney Richard
Hirsch suggested he would pro-
vide evidence that "there's
something else going on here
besides the alcohol" and that a
LaTorre medical condition
might be involved.
The defense asked that
Bowman be removed from the
courtroom, saying she was "a
visual feature" that might preju-
dice the jury. Circuit Court
Judge Luis Garcia denied the
motion. He also denied a motion
to have Bowman move from the
front row to the back of the
courtroom.
LaTorre and Bowman, who
spent considerable time at Ryder
Trauma Center in Miami, are
both from Big Coppitt Key.

Food-stamp numbers on the rise


Monroe sees
30% spike in
applications
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The demand for food
stamps in Monroe County has
increased by 30 percent the
past year, a far higher rate than
the statewide rate of 20 per-
cent.
In the Keys, there were
3,498 food-stamp recipients in
March. And state Department

of Children and Families
employees say they process
about 120 new applications a
month.
Access, a new agency sys-
tem designed to make it easier
to apply for aid, should help
out, said Jackie Low, supervi-
sor of Access for the Keys.,
"The Access program
removes a lot of the stigma
that once surrounded food
stamps," she said.
In recent years, the process
has gone from waiting in lines
for individual interviews to
where all you need is a com-
puter.
Access, like, its name
implies, gives you access to
the program from anywhere.

that from home, a library, any-
where there's a computer.
At DCF's Key West Service
Center in the Professional
Plaza on 12th Street and at the
state office building at the
Marathon Government Center,
banks of computers allow peo-
ple to submit food-stamp
applications. There's also a
food-stamp center at 88539
Overseas Highway in
Tavernier, next to Comcast
Cable.
And churches and other
organizations are signing on as
partners to help people in
need, Low said.
The site even allows appli-
cants to fill in some figures
anonymously to determine
whether they're eligible for
benefits.
Then, after processing, the
applicant receives a debit
card, which Low said removes
the stigma that once occurred
at the checkout line. Now no
one has to display to the peo-
ple in line behind them that
they're getting government
financial assistance.
Alan Abramowitz, South
Florida regional director of


DCF, said the system is
improving but he'd like to see
an even faster turnaround
between applications and
when benefits are issued.
"If we don't have the abili-
ty to get people food stamps in
a timely manner, it leads to
other problems," he said dur-
ing a recent visit to Key West.
"Just a 10-day gap can lead to
stress that can, in many cases,
lead to substance abuse,
domestic abuse, crime. People
might have to choose between
vital -medications and eating.
Which means they might.stop
taking important medicine,


leading to other health issues."
Statewide budget cuts are
threatening 300 DCF jobs, but
Abramowitz said the Keys
offices are as lean as they can
be so there probably won't be
any staff cuts locally.
Keyswide, DCF has 50
employees who do everything
from process new feed-stamp
applications to investigating
child and elder-abuse com-
plaints.
Miami-Dade, however, will
likely lose 100 jobs, many of
those child welfare investiga-
tors, Abramowitz says.

Motorcycle racer
crosses the jail line

A Tampa man was pepper-
sprayed and jailed early
Tuesday morning after a
deputy caught him racing his
motorcycle against another
driver, authorities say. .
Jeffrey Bognolo, 30, is


charged with participating in
an unlawful race, failing to
have a motorcycle endorse-
ment, resisting arrest without
violence, possession of
cocaine and drug parapherna-
lia, and tampering with evi-
dence.
The man he was allegedly
racing, Shawn Morris, 34, also
of Tampa, was given a citation
for racing and released.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
Deputy Evan Calhoun was
operating his radar at mile
marker 7.5 at 2:45 a.m. when
he saw two motorcycles stop
in the road, then suddenly take
off, quickly reaching speeds in
excess of 80 mph in the 55
mph zone.
When he pulled them over,
he found that Bognolo doesn't
have a motorcycle endorse-
ment, so he was arrested.
Bognolo also reportedly tried
to toss away a vial of cocaine
and refused to put his. hands
behind his back when ordered.
.After several repeated orders,
Calhoun pepper-sprayed him.

New planner accepts offer


Kimball-Murley
replaces Kenson
in the top spot
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West city officials found
the full-time city planner they
were looking for when City
Manager Jim Scholl hired inter-
im planner Amy Kimball-
Murley late Friday afternoon.
"I think code revision is
incredibly fascinating," she said.
Kimball-Murley already has
her feet wet, as she took the reins
in January after planner Gail
Kenson resigned and took a job
with the U.S. Navy. She quickly
earned the respect and accolades
of city employees, taking on big
projects such as starting to
update the comprehensive plan
.and conducting an audit of
building permits.
But for a while, the city
thought it couldn't afford her
services full-time.
"That's a very specialized
field that requires a lot of train-
ing in that area," Scholl said.
"Amy's specific experience in
Florida and areas of state critical
concern, it's justification for a
higher salary."
The city originally advertised
$90,000 for the job but it wasn't
enough to attract a truly quali-
fied candidate, officials say.
After reviewing seven resumes,
Scholl persuaded Kimball-
Murley, or the city's "rent-a-
planner," as she put it at one
commission meeting, to take the
position. She'll make $125,000 a
year.
"The reality was, we already
had a candidate of the highest
caliber," Scholl said. "She felt
the transition was doable."
"It was a very persuasive
management," Kimball-Murley
said. School "convinced my hus-
band [Jim Murley] that it's a
great move for my family."
As interim planner, she spent
two to three days a week in Key
West, working with city staff in
the Planning Department and
making $105 an hour, $50 less
than her typical rate. Now she'll
move here from Miami with her
6-year-old daughter;
Leaving her Miami home
isn't the only sacrifice she'll
make. Her private planning and
consulting company, Four Gates,.


KIMBALL-MURLEY


will dissolve.
It consisted of
her and an
assistant.
With many
former direc-
tors ignoring
some tough
planning
issues, she has
her work cut


out for her.
"Probably some of the most
critical planning issues in the
Planning Department, for what-
ever reason, weren't addressed
in the past decade," she said.
As for the planning staff,
which consists of two full-time
planners and administrative
employees, "They haven't had a
stable situation in months now.
We have a lot of project applica-


I KEY WEST


tions coming in."
She'll spend much time
tracking and enforcing deed
restrictions, which require cer-
tain property owners to rent their
units at affordable rates for a cer-
tain number of years.
"We take our-housing seri-
ously," she said, adding that giv-
ing back to community is impor-
tant to her. She volunteers for
numerous, Miami organizations.
She's been a consultant for 20
years and has worked on the
Navy's federal Base Reuse and
Closure program that started in
1995, and assisted with Navy
and city negotiations after Sept.
11, 2001.
"I think it's the best thing that
could happen to the city," City
Commissioner Mark Rossi said.
"That Planning Department was
in total chaos and she's going to
straighten it up."

Restaurant
was accused of
noncompliance
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A federal court decision last
week dismissed Cudjoe Key
activist Michelle Wisniewski's
lawsuit against the Opera
Restaurant in Key West claim-
ing it wasn't in compliance


with the Americans with
Disabilities Act.
Wisniewski claimed a 2-
inch "barrier" protruding at
the entrance of the Italian
restaurant's restroom made it
difficult for her to enter.
U.S. District Court Judge
James Lawrence King dis-
missed the case, calling
Wisniewski's motions "moot,"
according to a transcript of the
April 14 hearing.
Restaurant owners Patrick
and Peter Bek-Gran made
repairs immediately and
showed good efforts to make
their restaurant at 613.5 Duval
St. accessible, King ruled.
"They were always accessi-
ble," the defendants' attorney,
Diane Covan, said. "This was,
by her own admission, one of
Michelle's favorite restau-
rants."


Wisniewski dined at the
restaurant on two noted occa-
sions, once in September and
another time in November.
After her last visit, she sued
Jan. 9.
Covan said she will file a
motion for Wisniewski's attor-
ney, Jose Puig, to pay her own
attorney fees, which she said
are approaching $40,000.
An assistant at Puig's office
said he will appeal King's
decision by the May 1 dead-
line.
Wisniewski, a disabled
Vietnam veteran, declined to
comment but has told the
Keynoter in the past that she
doesn't make money from
ADA settlements, unlike her
attorneys. Her mission, she
has said, is simply to enforce
ADA compliance.
Wisniewski is a member of
the Association for Disabled
Americans, a group that's

Covan said Orlando attor-

Alison Sloat and Jim Brush own the Key West Key Lime Pie Co.


No pie in the sky here


Sloat, Brush
keep expanding
their business
By JESSICA MACHETTA
Keynoter Contributor

Key lime pies are big business
and no one knows better than Jim
Brush and Alison Sloat.
They started their Key West
Key Lime Pie Co. on Nov. 1,
2006, but have been baking up
their delectable Key lime pies for
years, beginning with peddling
them through JoJo's at the flea


market on Grassy Key.
When a previous Key West
business folded and Brush was
able to purchase the equipment
necessary to run a Key lime pie
store, the Key West Key Lime Pie
Co. was born.
In addition to selling their
products at more than 50 retail
locations in the Keys see their
Web site at www.keywest
keylimepieco.com they're
expanding to prominent venues
outside the Keys, such as the
American Airlines Arena, where
the Miami Heat plays. They also


service the four Restaurant
Depots in Miami-Dade and
Broward counties.
"As fast as it's growing,"
Brush said, "we can barely keep
up."
Brush and Sloat are not only
the owners, they say, but also the
workers.
"One or both of us are always
here," Sloat said.
"We make sure everything
goes right," Brush added, noting
they keep FedEx "very happy"
shipping out sometimes nearly
100 pies per day during the holi-

Pies win 4 ribbons .


It's all about the Key limes


In a blind tasting in the
Super Gourmet category of
the American Pie Council's
National Pie Championships
April 19 outside Orlando, the
Key West Key Lime Pie Co. of
Big Pine Key was awarded
four first-lace ribbons for its
handmade Key lime pies.
The ribbons went for
Traditional Key Lime Pie,
Mango Key Lime Pie,
Raspberry Key Lime Pie in a
chocolate cookie crust and
the Original Key Lime Pie Bar,
a slice of its handmade key
lime dipped in chocolate
served on a stick.
All of the company's pies
are made by hand.


The American Pie
Council's annual event
attracts hundreds of entries
from all across the country.
The event was at the
Orlando Sun Resort in
Kissimmee and the never-
ending pie buffet was at
lakeside in Celebration.
Thousands of visitors flocked
the park to enjoy the buffet.
The Lake Forest, III.,-based
American Pie Council "is the
only organization commit-
ted to preserving America's
pie heritage and promoting
American's love affair with
pies," the group's Web site
says.

Sloat breaks away to help a
customer choose just the right
Key lime pie, telling him, "We
have four kinds: regular, mango,
raspberry and pineapple-
coconut."
Free samples abound behind
the counter.
That customer left with "a Key
lime bar for his wife and a whole
pie for himself," Sloat said.
Brush and Sloat pride them-
selves on their innovative Key
lime/fruit pies.
"We've kind of reinvented the
Key lime pie industry," Brush
said. "With so many choices,
purists or traditionalists come in
and suddenly they're saying
'Well, let me try this.' It's kind of
fun, watching these seventh, 10th
generation Conchs" enjoy our
fruit pies.
The couple also takes pride in
using only natural fruits and
juices, not purees using
chunks of real mango, etc., and
only 100-percent real Key lime
juice.
"Greg Rowe, our production
manager, has made hundreds and
thousands of pies in the Keys tra-
dition," Brush said. "He brought
a wealth of institutional knowl-
edge to the business. It's a 100-
year-old recipe; it has not
changed."
Brush and Sloat use an eggless,
no-bake recipe, which Sloat says
can be frozen and refrozen several
times without separating, some-
thing her customers appreciate.
"It's so creamy because we
whip it and whip it and whip it,"
she said.
In creating their signature fruit
pies, Brush said "We took the
quality of that [Key .lime pie]
recipe and started adding fresh
fruit to it, starting with the lime-
filling and then adding raspberry
[which has a chocolate cookie
crust], mango and then pineap-
ple-coconut," he said, which
"tastes like a pina colada."
Their best selling product,
though, is still their regular Key
Lime pie, as well as their Original
Key Lime Pie Bar (the chocolate-
covered slice on a stick), a prod-
uct that is trademarked.
Brush and Sloat are always
looking to expand to other Keys
locations, and are always happy
to get their product at other retail
locations, restaurants and the


Greg Rowe, production manager for the Key West Key Lime Pie

like.
Their store, inside the Winn-
Dixie Shopping Plaza on Big
Pine Key, mile marker 30, is
loaded with Key lime products,
edible and otherwise, and over-
whelms the sense of smell.
"That's the first thing people
say when they come in," Sloat
said, "that it smells so good."
They pointed out some of their
signature products that are prov-
ing to be extremely popular:
Havana Cola and Havana Mojito
(both non-alcoholic), and their
Key Lime Chipotle Sauce, made
exclusively for them. .
"Bagel -Island makes their
pulled pork sandwiches with' the
sauce, Sloat said, adding that it's
great on just about everything. "I
particularly like it on bacon-
wrapped lobster."
Their store features nearly 150


different Key lime products,
including jellies, jams, mari-
nades, candles, and of course,
pies.
The couple features many of
their tried and tested recipes on
their Web site.
Brush's newest "toy" is 'a
printer that allows him to put
someone's picture or message on
a.Key lime pie in edible ink.
"Someone can e-mail us a
photo and we print it on the pie,"
he said. "It's neat for weddings,
family reunions, roasts..."
Brush and Sloat like their new
business because "it's fun," they
say.
"People who come in, they
can try all of our products or we
can help them choose," Brush
said. "We love to make people
happy."

Lack of money


no hindrance


for Key Wester

Artist finds his 'forte'


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


You won't find Key West
artist Joe Forte wearing a black
turtleneck drinking hundred-dol-
lar bottles of wine with wealthy
artists who own galleries in New
York City.
Joe's not that kind of artist.
For starters, he sleeps in a van,
cramped among thousands of his
prints he sells at the Blue Heaven
restaurant in Bahama Village and
other popular island locations.
He doesn't sell many original
paintings or drawings but if you
ask sentimental Forte, he sells
"too many." It's difficult for him
to let go, but when he does, they
start at $3,500, he says.
Forte, 65, looks like a wizard
from a J.R.R. Tolkien novel, with
a whimsically white beard that
hangs to his chest, owl-like eye-
brows and a Key Wester's pony-
tail. He shampoos his beard daily,
and claims he's never found any-
thing living in it.
He does sell prints, but friends
say he's notorious for giving
them away and offering generous
discounts.
"I don't have any money," he
says matter-of-factly.
But Forte will never tell you
he's homeless. His home is with
friends on William Street, Forte's
"studio," where they feed him
and hang his paintings on the
wall, making island living possi-
ble for a poor artist.
The walls in the old home are
laced with Forte's abstract paint-
ings. Residents Paul Menta and
Nick O'Bea have covered nearly
every square foot of the home's
interior, and they're resorting to
squeezing paintings in the bath-
room.
"Joe's like my wife with a
beard," Menta said jokingly.
"Whether he's treated good or
bad, he's always the same guy,
just one of 'those people who
knows himselff"
"This is a home to me." Forte


said. "I wouldn't be here if it
weren't for these guys."
A few thousand prints are
stacked in the house's loft, and
Menta often watches Forte pace
around his living room for weeks
before actually painting a piece.
But when Forte's eyes glaze over
and he grabs the easel and brush,
Menta knows not to interrupt.
He can take days perfecting a
sketch, but is much quicker with
his paintings, specifically his
vibrant abstract pieces, or what
Forte calls "high realism spirit
pieces.
"There's nothing abstract
about it," Forte said. "It's always
inspired by definite motivations.
I don't know where 'abstract'
came from; someone who does-

Joe Forte is the quintessential Key West person. It may take the artist a while to get started on
his latest work but once he does, he stays focused on it. He works out of the-house of friends
on William Street.

Start was at Galleon


FORTE /From 21

n't understand it, I guess."
He's originally from Canada
but has painted all over Europe -
in Prague, Paris and southern
Italy. His landscape paintings
include the outside of the cafes,
restaurants and shops in those
areas, and especially in Key West.
"I've been an artist since 5,
but only been making a living
since 42," he said.
He grew up in Ontario, and
opened a small grocery store and
open-air fruit market there.
He came to Key West 22 years
ago as a full-time artist, setting up
his easel at the Galleon Resort
and outside numerous Key West


staples.
He's even developed relation-
ships with city officials
"Joe's a hell of good guy," City
Commissioner Mark Rossi said.
Forte's three children and six
grandchildren live in Canada and
he's suddenly quiet when he talks
about them. He doesn't see them
often because they have their
own lives, he said.
Presumably, lives involving
more money.
In an essay she wrote about
Forte, friend Charlie Wilson
writes, "He simply decided the
stress-free and care-free living
this new lifestyle offered was
more important than excess mon-
etary wealth."

4 Conchs head


to state meet


Two school
records fall
in regional
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Key West High School soph-
omore Phillip Young won gold
medals in the 300-meter hurdles
and the triple jump, and was
also on the 4x100 relay team
that finished third, in Friday's
Class 2A regional track meet at
Belen Jesuit in Miami.
Young will advance to
Saturday's state meet at
Showalter Field in Winter Park,
along with his 4x100 team-
mates, Jaxon Coleman, Michael
Sohi and Marlon Briones.
Young won the 300 hurdles
in 38.8 seconds, breaking the
school record of 39.02 he set
April 10 in the district meet. He
also won the triple jump with an
effort of 44 feet 4 inches.
"Phillip is by .far one of the
best 10th-graders I've ever
coached," coach Dave Perkins
said. "His demeanor, maturity
and dedication are rarely seen in
athletes his age. Assistant coach
Samia Fercha has done an out-
standing job helping him fine-


tune his hurdle and triple-jump
skills."
Young is ranked fourth in the
state in the 300 hurdles and fifth
in the triple jump.
Another Conch record fell
when the 4x100 team ran the
event in 41,89, less than a second
behind winner Monsignor Pace.
The previous record of 42.50
was set by Terrence Moore,
Marquez Butler, Daniel Garcia
and Laurence Marius in 2005.
"I had no idea they would
take an entire second off their
time in one race," said Perkins,
who moved each runner to a dif-
ferent leg of the relay. "That
time gives us the third-fastest
time in the state behind Belle
Glades and Pace."
The Key West boys finished
sixth in the 20-team regional
meet with 33 points. Belen won
with 118.
The 4x400 team of Shea
Reger, Briones, Andres Garcia
and Young finished sixth in
3:27.8. Only the top four teams
advanced to the state meet, and
Pahokee was fourth in 3:26.57.

Conchs face steep challenge


Nemesis Belen
in the way of
state playoffs
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Can Key West beat Belen?
It hasn't happened in a long
time, but the Conchs will get
another chance when the teams
meet at 7-30 tonight in the semi-
finals of the District 16-4A base-
ball tournament at what is expect-
ed to be a crowded, rowdy Rex
Weech-Field.
Belen Jesuit Prep of Miami
(17-6-2) has defeated Key West
six consecutive times, including
victories in the 2006 and 2007
district semifinals.
If the Conchs win tonight,


they will make the state playoffs
for the first time since 2005,
when they won their llth state
championship, and also go on to
play for the district title Thursday
night against the winner of this
afternoon's Monsignor Pace-
Mater Academy game.
If they lose, their season will
end with a 14-13 record.
Coach Miguel Menendez put
the significance of the game into
perspective:
"With us not making the play-
offs the last two years and the
struggles we have had with
Belen, it is a huge game for me
personally. I have stressed to the
kids that they need to play like
they have been. They don't feel
any pressure because they know
how good they are. They are very


confident."
The Conchs come into the
game with a four-game winning
streak and have scored 37 runs in
their past three games, including
15 in a shutout against Marathon
Friday night. Although the streak
has come against weak oppo-
nents, the strong schedule earlier
in the season appears to have
made the team better.
Key West warmed up for
tonight's game by defeating
Reagan, 11-1, Monday night in a
first-round tourney game. Second
baseman Frankie Ratcliff contin-
ued his sensational hitting with
two triples, a single and five
RBIs. He raised his batting aver-
age to .483

10-run mercy rule.
Senior Blayne Weller, who has
won two games in a row, will
pitch tonight, with the
Wolverines' Marcos Calderon
(.446) and Yoe Lopez (.419)


looming as his biggest threats.
In addition to Ratcliff, the,
Conchs have two other .400 hit-
ters Raiko Alfonso (.452) and

Dolphins avenge Palmer losses


By Ryan McCarthy
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Despite a lengthy break in its
schedule, Marathon High School
carried momentum from a late-
season surge into its opening
round District 16-2A tournament
game Monday.
The Dolphins defeated Palmer
Trinity School, a team they lost to
twice during the regular season,
11-9, and- advanced to the semifi-
nal scheduled to be played
Tuesday against Westminster
Christian School.
Marathon played only once
since a March 26 win over Coral
Shores, an embarrassing 15-0
loss to Key West High School
coach Luis Leal said motivated
the team.
"We played a real bad game
Friday; that kind of lit a fire under
them," Leal said. "We're just
playing with confidence right
now. We know we can win, it's
just a matter of doing it, and
toward the end of the year we
started to realize that."
The Dolphins began the year
with 10 straight losses before
winning three of their next four
heading into Spring Break.-
Junior pitcher Toby Eigner
pitched a complete game. He
allowed 12 hits and struck out
five batters.

Senior J.P McCabe (No. 2) is mobbed by Dolphin teammates
after hitting the first home run of his career. Marathon won its
opening-round district tournament game against Palmer
Trinity Monday, 11-9.


"He probably didn't have his
best stuff, but kept battling and
kept us in the game," Leal said.
Down 1-0 in the second
inning, Marathon scored four
runs to take an early lead. Senior
Chris Garrett doubled and Sean
O'Connor walked to lead off the
inning.
Senior Jay Hegland reached
base on an error, which scored
Garrett, and Mike Kuck doubled
home O'Connor and Hegland.
Kuck scored on a Nick Bertiaux
double down the left-field line to
put Marathon up 4-1.


Marathon fell behind 7-4 in
the third inning as the Falcons
used a bases-loaded walk, a field-
er's choice and two base hits to
put five runs on the board.
Marathon answered back with
five runs of its own in the fifth to
take a 9-7 lead. Garrett hit a two-
run double and O'Connor hit a
three-run home run.
A two-run home run by J.P.
McCabe in the sixth inning -
the first of his career put the
Dolphins up 11-7, and they were
able to hold off Palmer in the sev-
enth inning for the win.

Bush. 84, who has

the goal of catching a giant
tarpon. especially on fly.
"He came to me about
two years ago and said, 'Can

Leon, Piedra win World


Team comes
from behind
for $100,OOOK

The sixth annual World
Sailfish Championship is now
history.
So how does the 2008 tourna-
ment stand against some of the
more memorable contests of the
past like in 2004, when Duck
Key Capt. Scott Walker had to
improvise on Day 3 by trolling
dead baits to pull out the victory?
Or last year, when Miami's
Ray Rosher came from behind to
become the only captain to claim
victory twice in the event?
Time will tell where this
stands in the short history of the
World Sailfish. But one thing is
certain: The competition and
fishing have never been hotter.
The World Sailfish Champ-
ionship is a four-day tournament
in which 110 teams fish three of
the days. The team with the most
catches and releases overall wins
the guaranteed $100,000 grand
prize not including the additional
Calcutta (a Calcutta is an option-
al entry fee that teams can enter
for an additional payout to the
winner). Overall, $1.2 million is
split among the winners of each
day's fishing, according to Chris
King, event organizer.
Taking the top prize with 15
sailfish released over three days
was team Rock Star out of
Miami, owned by Jorge Piedra
and captained by Scott Leon of
Davie. Unlike teams that have
won in the past, these guys had
never competed together..


T"This is
our first
year as a

Leon says.
"We have
Been in
contention

nine tour-
naments
we have
entered but
this is our
Cal Sutphin first win. I
can t
believe it. It really hasn't settled
in yet. What a tournament to win
first."
They sat in fifth place going
into the final day but then luck set
in.
"I was listening to the VHF
and heard two teams to the west
getting hot. It was only 8 o'clock
but we decided to reel up lines
and make the run," Leon says.
"About a mile into the run out-
side of American Shoals, we saw
a free-jumping sailfish and got
onto him, caught and released
him. Then another few miles, saw
another and got a double header.
If we had never picked up and
moved, we would have never
seen them."
"This year was different from
the start," Walker says. "On the
first day when lines went in at 7
a.m., the VHF [radio] went crazy
with call-ins."
"The bite for the first two days
was off of Big Pine and the boats
that headed that way all seemed
to be in the money," he says. "On
Day 3, we slid off to the western-
most boundaries off of Rebecca


Shoal and had three sails released
by 8 a.m. I've never had such a
start like that in any day in the
World Sailfish."
Second behind Leon and
Piedra with 15 releases, but catch-
ing their last fish after team Rock
Star, was team Jichi owned by
Luis Isaias and captained by Ricky
Linder, both from Coral Gables.
Third place went to the crew
aboard the 2006 World Sailfish
champion Vitamin Sea Too,
owned by Tim Maddock of
Pompano Beach and captained by
Mike Dinnen of Fort Lauderdale.
"Things went better than it's
ever gone before," King says.
"We broke a record. in terms of
fish caught and released overall,
and also the number of fish
caught in one day, which we
almost broke again the following
day. The concert was our best yet
with Billy Currington and Dallas
Davidson and Brett Jones coming
down. I couldn't have scripted it
any better."
"A lot of other tournaments
had a tough time this year with the
economy and yet we still reached
our goal of 110 boats and also had
a record payout for charities."
King says it's the money
raised for charities about which
he's most proud.
"From a charity perspective,
we raised in the neighborhood of
$300,000 for all of our charity
partners. The most exciting thing
for me this year was this being
the first year for our charity
Calcutta in which we raised an,
additional $50,000. The idea of
the Calcutta is for a tax-

It's all about the tarpon right now


Live baits

on silver


good
kings


It's tarpon time they are
everywhere and eating heavily
throughout the days and nights,
according to all the reports I've
received and witnessed the past
few days. The flats are covered
up with them, as are most of the


bridge channels.
What a great time to have a
tournament. Now that I've men-
tioned it, there just happens to be
a couple coming up real soon.
May 1 is the start of the oldest-
tarpon tournament in the area, the
42nd annual Marathon
International Tarpon, which runs
for three evenings of fishing. It's
open to everyone and usually
hosts a wide field of anglers chal-
lenging the silver king.


The ladies have their own
event that starts May 9. It's the
32nd annual Ladies Tarpon
Tournament with fishing two
nights, after-fishing parties and a
brunch in between.
Whether or not you are fishing
the tournaments, you should take
advantage of the tarpon fishing
right now. Live mullet, live pin-
fish, live shrimp, live crabs and
many types of plugs are all work-
ing for these hungry fish.

Remember, the big tarpon don't
come to the boat, the boat comes
to them.
Aside from tarpon, the off-
shore report has been sketchy at
best lately.
The dolphin seem to be pick-
ing up along the inside edge of
the current. This has been varying
from 4 to 7 miles beyond the reef
from day to day. Not too many
anglers have ventured out beyond
that because once you hit the cur-
rent moving to the east on the
days we have had a stiff easterly
winds, it gives you the impres-
sion you are in a Maytag washer
on the super wash cycle.
Maintaining the proper loca-
tion of one's breakfast has been
more challenging than finding
fish once in the current on the
windy days.
Now that we are past the full
moon, the bite on the reef has
improved for yellowtail and nice
muttons. A few big grouper have
been hooked but won the battle
with the anglers.
Most of the best activity has
been in shallower-than-normal
depths, say, 35 to 50 feet. The big
fish still have maintained their


numbers in the deeper waters
though, around 70-plus feet. The
only problem here has been the
predators, which have been quite
numerous, according to reports.
Inside along the inner edge of
Hawk Channel, some nice catch-
es of snapper, along with a few
traveling cobia, have been put
together. The snapper bite has
continued into the bridge chan-
nels, too.
Many of the tarpon fishermen
using live pinfish, shrimp and
even crabs have found more than
a few snapper. A few big black
grouper have been taken along
here, as well.
For the most part, most anglers
have been working the calmer
waters of the bay on those windy
days of late. Plenty of chum has
produced the better results.
Plenty of snapper and trout
were available for these anglers,
with a few legal red grouper and
an occasional cobia. Some of the
shallower waters near an island or
bank have been producing some
very nice mangrove snapper you
would not normally think would
be in such shallow water.
There are several things that
should just bust loose in the next
few weeks in area fishing, and
you should be ready for it.
A big push of dolphin should
happen any day and when it does,
have your tackle ready to go. The
mangrove snapper should be
making a push to the oceanside of
the islands soon for their annual
spawn, which will cause a big run
through the bridge channels. And
the yellowtail should be school-
ing up in certain locations in huge
numbers for the same reason.
