Come June 1,
they're banned for
certain Gulf fish
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The angler's familiar J-hook
may become an endangered
species of equipment.
Beginning June 1, new restric-
tions will take effect in Gulf of
Mexico waters that limit use of
the J-hook, the most common
type of fish hook.
Circle hooks will be required
in both state and federal gulf
waters for recreational and com-
mercial fishermen on boats tak-
ing snapper, grouper and other
reef-fish species in the gulf.
"Generally speaking, once


people start using circle hooks,
they find them to be much more
effective, both in catching the
fish and releasing it," said
Charlie Bergmann, a fishing-gear
specialist with the National
Marine Fisheries Service.
The releasing is what most
concerns fishery managers.
"The fishery is really suffering
and there is a major problem with
high mortality among released
fish," said Le6 Schlesinger,
spokesman for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
"The commission wants to
decrease that mortality so they
don't have to take other measures
like lower bag limits," he said.

Citizens bill

State insurer


would package
all coverage
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Insurance reforms in
Tallahassee could add thousands
to new homeowners' yearly bills
in the Keys.
Legislation that passed the
Florida Senate would stop


Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. from issuing new wind-
storm-only policies. Instead, the
state-backed insurer of last
resort would package windstorm
'with homeowners coverage.
State Rep. Ron Saunders, D-
Key West, said he "strongly
objects" to that becoming law. In
the current House climate, the
bill might not make it to a vote

Circle hooks now required

shaft as opposed to the straight
shaft of a J-hook.
"Fishermen seem to be able to
adapt to these kind of changes,"
said Bill Wickers, a lifetime char-
ter fisherman in Key West. "Circle
hooks have been required in tour-
naments for a while now. There
may be some problems at first but
I think most people will go along
once they see the benefits."
Board members of the federal
Gulf of Mexico Fishery Manage-
ment Council approved the cir-
cle-hook rule late last year as part
of its reef-fish management.
In February, the state FWC
adopted matching rules for gulf-
side waters in its jurisdiction. The
rule bans J-hooks used with natural
bait for species like grouper and
snapper in the reef-fish category.
It does not apply to fish taken
from shore, or species like snook
or mackerel.
"Circle hooks tend to hook in


the jaw, which makes the fish
much easier to release without it
suffering damage to its internal
organs," Bergmann said.
Also newly required in gulf
waters will be possession of a de-
hooking device, and a venting
tool to deflate the air bladder of
fish taken from deep waters.
Most regular anglers seem
familiar with the pending rule,
change, said Debbie Woodring
from the Tackle Box bait-and-
tackle shop in Marathon.
"Florida residents who five
along the coast seem to know it's
coming," Woodring said. "Not
everybody does. It's going to be
interesting."
Her shop has not had difficul-
ty stocking more circle hooks, she
said. "We're absolutely ready."
Some recreational-fishing
suppliers recently have voiced
concerns, Schlesinger said.
"Some businesses have said
they need more lead time and
raised some issues," he said.
"Our agency is looking into it,


but this has been on the table for
quite a few months now."
Carved seashells first used by
mankind as fish hooks more
closely resemble the circle hook
than the J-hook, Bergmann said.
"A fisherman has to rear back
to set a J-hook," Bergmann said.
"With a circle hook, you just start
cranking the reel."
Some traditionalists will not
be pleased to make the change,
he acknowledged.
"Some people don't believe
there is a problem so why fix it,"
he said. "But sometimes, they
find new things work better. The
circle hook is a very appropriate
fishing tool."
The South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council reportedly
is looking at the circle-hook rule,
but no rule has been passed.
The FWC does not expect an
immediate enforcement crack-
down after June 1, Schlesinger
said. "Everybody realizes it's bet-
ter to try to ease into this."


'This is going to kill us'


Keys beaches are test-
ed weekly for fecal col-
iform and enterococcus,
both fecal-based bacte-
ria. There currently are no
beaches with health advi-
sories or warnings against
swimming.



A Wednesday story
about the scuttling of the
USS Vandenberg as a Key
West artificial reef was
unclear in how much it
costs to keep the ship
docked at a Virginia ship-
yard. It costs $20,000
monthly.
Also, due to incorrect
information provided by
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson, an April 16
story about the hotel bed
tax contained an incor-
rect number. The current
overall bed tax in the Keys
is 11.5 percent.

Boater reportedly


in Cuba jail


He launched
from city ramp
in Marathon
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Circumstances surrounding a
Cuban native launching a boat
Sunday night in Marathon and
reportedly ending up in a Cuban
jail remain unclear days later.
U.S. Coast Guard spokesman
Matthew Meinhold said Miguel
Duarte of Hialeah, whose age is
unknown, borrowed a friend's
18-foot Renken boat and
launched it from the 33rd Street
boat ramp in Marathon.
"The man who owned it called
us on Tuesday night to report him
and the boat missing," Meinhold
said. The van and boat trailer it
was launched from remained
parked in the lot at 33rd Street.
Duarte "came down with his
buddies for the weekend. He was
going to take the boat out again
on Sunday," Meinhold said.


"The man didn't know where
he was going or how long. He
just said he was going boating in
the area, but it's hard to search
with that information," Meinhold
said.
Meinhold said "the. Coast
Guard checked Duarte's cell-
phone records to help narrow the
search, but one of his family
members eventually notified
them of his whereabouts.
"His uncle called us and said,
'I think he might have went to
Cuba,' and called us later and
said, 'Yes, he is in Cuba, in jail,'"
he said.
U.S. Customs and Border
Protection in Marathon con-
firmed Duarte is not a U.S. citi-
zen and it's unclear how he ended
up in jail in Cuba. Meinhold said
his reasons for returning there are
unknown.
However, hopeful Cuban
migrants are routinely picked up
by boaters from the U.S., usually
in dangerous smuggling opera-
tions.

conflicted about timing, most
defense witnesses agreed they
saw LaTorre at the Conch
Republic Seafood Co. in Key
West for happy hour and later
that night, between 9:30 p.m. and-
midnight, at several lower Duval
Street bars. All said they had seen
LaTorre drinking beers; none
could say exactly how many he
had consumed.
LaTorre is charged with
felony driving under the influ-
ence-personal injury and DUI-
property damage, a misde-
meanor.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol at the time,
LaTorre, 60, was driving a 2006
Honda southbound on U.S. 1 in
the northbound. Then-33-year-
old Nadezda Bowman was driv-
ing 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
Bowman from her car using the
Jaws of Life.


In a videotaped, deposition
jurors watched late Thursday,
Dewitt Roberts, who said he was
the best man at LaTorre's wed-
ding, testified he spent much of
the evening with LaTorre.
According to his testimony, he
was also the last person to see
-LaTorre before the collision.
Circuit Court Judge Luis
Garcia admitted into evidence
Bowman's hospital records from
the morning of the crash indicat-
ing she, too, had been drinking.
Her blood-alcohol level meas-
ured at 0.097, above the legal
limit but lower than LaTorre's of
0.102.
Garcia also suppressed state
blood tests showing LaTorre had
traces of cocaine in his blood, rul-
ing LaTorre's blood-alcohol lev-
els alone could account for his
driving.
Prosecutors and the defense
are expected to make closing
arguments Tuesday when the six-
member jury will begin delibera-
tions.
If found guilty, LaTorre faces
up to five years in prison.- '

The U.S. Drug Enforcement
Agency resident agent in charge
of the Keys, Ken Davis,
announced his candidacy for
Monroe County sheriff Thursday
afternoon at his Islamorada
retirement celebration.
Top law enforcement from
Key West to Miami applauded
when the Republican made it
official.
"I feel my experience can be
put to good use?' said Davis, a law
enforcement veteran of 28 years.
Davis, 52, couldn't officially
disclose his political aspirations
until he retired his badge as a fed-
eral agent. He filed to run
Thursday.
Davis will face at least one
opponent in the Aug. 26 primary,
fellow GOP member Phil
Mandina, running for sheriff for
the fourth time.
Also running are Sheriff's
Office Capt. Bob Peryam, a
Democrat; tree-trimming compa-
ny owner Sandra Downs, no party
affiliation; and cook Bob Horan,
also with no party affiliation. The
general election is Nov. 4.
If elected, Davis said he
would focus on the Sheriff's
Office budget first and foremost.
He says it should be a concern for

"It's very
difficult for
someone to

prejudice, to

Among those attending his
Morada Bay Beach Cafe retire-

Davis grew up in Lakeland

Keys Opinion


Schools tax swap

should be rejected

Looks like Florida voters will be asked to swap property.
taxes for a sales tax increase to fund our schools.
Where we come from, that's called a bait and switch.
The state's Taxation and Budget Reform Commission -
after months of lobbying convinced some leery members to
change their votes and endorse this so-called tax-swap idea.
On the surface, proponents of the measure call it landmark
tax reform. Ex-Senate President John McKay raves: "This bal-
lot initiative will create approximately $80 billion of wealth in
Florida."
Hooey.
The way proponents arrive at that pie-in-the-sky view is to
focus on the percentage of property taxes now levied to fund
Florida kindgarten-through-12 education, which is roughly
equivalent to an across-the-board reduction.of 25 percent.
But unless schools close, they still need funding. That's
where the bait and switch comes into play.
The commission's ballot proposal, which goes before voters
in November, requires the Legislature to find other ways to
make up that lost school tax revenue.
Guess what that means? Yes, a tax increase, only you won't
hear that word uttered by many lawmakers who actually have
to face voters and explain how that's going to work.
Most of these tax-swap plans have assumed at least a penny
increase in Florida's state sales tax. Unfortunately, that will
raise less than half the $9 billion needed to run our schools.
Many predict an increase in service taxes or eliminating
many of the sales tax exemptions built into Florida's crazy-
quilt tax system.
Replacing property taxes with sales taxes only shifts more of
the tax burden to those least able to afford it, which is why
sales taxes are labeled regressive.
To make the Taxation and Reform Commission's latest bait
and switch even more onerous, one idea being floated to cover
the $5 billion or so funding gap is to shift the burden back to
school districts, which now levy a state-mandated discre-
tionary tax of $51 per $100,000 of taxable property.
If lawmakers in Tallahassee simply pass the buck to school
boards across the state, then elected school boards would be
forced to increase that discretionary tax and they get the
blame.
What a perfect cop-out, which points to why the Taxation
"Reform" Commission hasn't solved anything. It's only prom-
ised tax relief. The bills will still come due.
This is a bad idea that we hope voters reject in November.

Legislature must allow wind-only with Citizens


EDITOR:
Although well intended with regard to some
of the provisions contained therein, state Sen. Jeff
Atwater's insurance bill (SB 2860) contains one
particular provision that would be absolutely dev-
astating to Monroe County policyholders.
SB 2860 would prohibit Citizens Property
Insurance Corp. from providing wind-only poli-
cies to new applicants and instead would be
required to sell multi-peril policies including
wind, fire, theft, liability, etc. This all-or-nothing
approach would raise premiums and significantly
limit coverage for Monroe County residents,
business owners and thousands of other coastal
county residents. More specifically, the following
points illustrate just a few of the problems with
this provision.
+ Many carriers write an "X-wind" policy
now and provide multi-policy discounts when the
consumer purchases other lines such as auto,
watercraft and umbrella policies. These discounts
would evaporate if Citizens were to write the
multi-peril policy, thus increasing the overall cost
to the consumer.
Based on our analysis for Monroe County,
Citizens' rates on the multi-peril policy are higher
for most policyholders (even if the multi-policy
discounts are disregarded) compared to a stan-
dard carrier issuing an X-wind policy and a com-
panion wind-only policy from Citizens.
For example, a frame-construction home cov-
ered at $200,000 generates a Citizens multi-peril
premium of $4,613 compared to an X-wind poli-
cy with a standard carrier and a companion wind-


only policy with a total premium of $1,587.00. A
concrete home with concrete roof covered at
$475,000 generates a Citizens multi-peril premi-
um of $9,341.00 compared to an X-wind policy
with a standard carrier and a companion wind-
only policy with a total premium of $4,533.
Unlike many standard carriers, Citizens
does not (and should not) provide any special
endorsements or floaters within its policy.
Jewelry, collections, special replacement-cost
endorsements, in-home business coverage, ani-
mal liability, off -premises liability and contents
away from the premises, to name a few, are all
unable to be added to the Citizens multi-peril pol-
icy, creating the need for additional policies at a
higher cost and more confusion for the consumer.
Commercial policies may be affected the
most. Many commercial policies provide cover-
age customized to unique exposures. A vanilla
package of coverage from Citizens cannot meet
the needs of every coastal business. This would
eliminate discounts from existing package poli-
cies, drive up costs, reduce options and create
confusion for business owners.
Contact state Rep. Ron Saunders (ron.saun-
ders@myfloridahouse.gov or 853-1947) and ask
him to vote and encourage his peers in the House
to vote to maintain Citizens' ability to offer the
wind-only policy so consumers in Monroe and
other coastal communities are not forced to pay
more for less.

Bill would give Citizens a monopoly


EDITOR:
A well-intended Senate bill (SB 2860) con-
tains a provision that would prohibit Citizens
Property Insurance Corp. from selling a wind-
only policy to new applicants, instead requiring it
to sell all perils like fire, theft, liability and more.
This would raise premiums and decrease cover-
age for thousands of coastal residents and busi-
nesses.
Citizens would basically be a monopoly in
Monroe County since there is no company finan-
cially capable of writing the peril of windstorm.
Therefore, there would be no other choice for the
consumers. Also, if this does happen, the compa-
nies that are writing in Monroe for the other per-
ils such as fire, theft, liability, jewelry and what-
ever else the consumer needs would be gone. If
the companies have no business, they would not
write in Monroe County since they would be
unable to justify the expense and loss verses the
income generated.
Since many private carriers currently write the
perils other than wind, they give significant multi-
policy discounts for auto, watercraft, personal
umbrellas, etc. These discounts would evaporate
when Citizens writes those other perils instead. In
my agency the premium impact from this could
be as high as 50 percent for some clients.
Citizens' premiums for a multi-peril policy
(including wind) are higher, even disregarding
the multi-policy discounts. There are examples of
premium increases that are 150 percent or more


for thousands of policyholders, who will also
suffer coverage shortfalls.
Unless SB 2860 by state Sen. Jeff Atwater is
amended to maintain current law with respect to
Citizens' wind-only policy options, consumers
would pay substantially more for substantially
less. There would be no other insurance alterna-
tive for the homeowners of Monroe County, only
Citizens.

Take time to thank a volunteer


EDITOR:
As 2008 National Volunteer
Week, April 27 to May 3,
approaches, I want to thank the
members of the Mariners Hospital.
Auxiliary for helping make our
hospital the wonderful healthcare
facility it is.
The humanitarian Albert
Schweitzer once said, "The pur-
pose of human life is to serve and
to show compassion and the will
to help others." That one statement
sums up the lives of each of our

Volunteers keep hospital


EDITOR:
The week of April 27 through
May 3 is National Volunteer
Week, created in 1974 when
President Nixon signed an execu-
tive order to establish the week as
an annual celebration of volun-
teering. And every year since that
time, each U.S. president, along
with many governors, mayors and
other elected officials, has signed
a proclamation promoting
National Volunteer Week.
The dedicated auxiliary, adult
and junior volunteers .and interns
at Lower Keys Medical Center
donate their time and talents in
many areas of our hospital. Their
valuable assistance supports our
high standards of patient care,
lightens the load on our hospital
health-care professionals and
brings comfort and happiness to
our patients and their families.
On a daily basis, our volunteers
transport mail and flowers to
patient rooms, push patients in
wheelchairs to different areas all
over the hospital, staff the infor-
mation desk, assemble paperwork
and provide a selection of books
and magazines to read.

Rescue crews are wasting fuel
EDITOR:
When Marathon Fire Rescue held an
open house for its new state-of-the-art fire

building, a kitchen complete with all the lat-

Burnett manager contract up for vote


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

His hiring happened much
quicker than two City Council
members would have liked, but
barring any unforeseen circum-
stance, Clyde Burnett is expected
to officially become the next city
manager of Marathon Tuesday.
Burnett said negotiations on
his contract were "simple" and
that he is ready to begin work.
"I'm looking forward to get-
ting it approved Tuesday and
starting to work for the city and
see what I can do. My No. 1 one
concern is making services as
user-friendly as possible for the
resident," Burnett said.
"Likewise, to make sure we have
the proper employees staffed to
make sure we can provide that
service."
Burnett wvas somewhat unex-
pectedly hired April 8, when the


council was expected to hear the
results of their individual rank-
ings of 68 applicants and formu-
late a short list for interviews. It
decided to forgo that process and
approved a motion to begin nego-
tiations right away with Burnett,
who was the top choice.
According to the .contract,
Burnett will receive an initial
annual salary of $90,000 per year.
If he receives a positive evalua-
tion from the council after 180
days on the job, it increases to
$100,000.
Burnett will also receive an
annual cost-of-living adjustment
equal to the Consumer Price
Index for South Florida, or 4 per-
cent, whichever is less.
Newly hired Monroe County
Administrator R6man Gastesi
will earn $145,000 to start, while
Islamorada Village Manager


Kenneth Fields, also new, earns
$154,000. Key West City
Manager Jim Scholl, hired last
summer, earns $180,000.
"The pay is adequate," Bumett
said. "I'm not sure on a scale of a
town this size where it falls, but I
already have my housing so I can
deal with it," Burnett said. He
also has a retirement package
from his more than 30 years as a
government employee in Ohio.
The contract will take effect
May 1 and run through April 30,
2009, "unless terminated earlier."
Council has the option to extend
the term for two one-year peri-
ods.
Mayor Pete Worthington and
Vice Mayor Chris Bull were
strongly opposed to the way
Burnett was hired, but Bull said
he feels none "of the issues will
delay the passage of the contract
Tuesday."
"I think there will be some dis-


cussion about some of the details
such as starting salary and the
evaluation time. If it's a six-
month evaluation, that puts it
right after the election," he said.
"Do we want to do that when we
could potentially have new peo-
ple? They go into the position and
two weeks later they're evaluat-
ing our manager."
Councilmen Don Vasil and
Mike Cinque each said they feel


City wants


more green
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
A resolution encouraging
residents of Marathon to con-
serve energy and protect our local
environment by becoming more
environmentally conscious.
The resolution recommends
five steps for residents to take
now to begin the process of
reducing their personal energy
consumption: Change at'least one
bulb to a compact fluorescent
one, use a cloth bag at the super-
market instead of a plastic one,
turn home and business thermo-
stats up at least two degrees,
recycle and plant a tree at your
home.
Marathon's Green Team, an
informal advisory panel to the
city, will present findings from an
audit of government energy use
and emissions at Tuesday's City
Council meeting. It makes rec-
ommendations in the report by
which the city can streamline its
operations; some cost nothing,
while others are considered
major capital expenditures.
A resolution to approve a
request by the city for a condi-
tional-use permit authorizing the
construction of 40 deed-restricted
affordable housing units at its
2.73-acre lot on 104th Street.


the contract is fair and would be
approved.
"I think the salary part is very
fair and in line with what I was
anticipating we would pay the
new manager," Vasil said.
"It's lower than Islamorada
and Key West, but I don't think
you should spend more than you
have to," Cinque said. Burnett
"knows all the players so he'll hit
the ground running I think."





living



The city awarded the contract
to Old Town Key West Develop-
ment, headed by Ed Swift, and
granted him a 99-year lease in
December. Rent for the parcel
will be $10 per year.
Swift will construct 40 two-
and three-bedroom workforce
houses on the property, ranging
in price from $209,000 to
$292,000.
A resolution to approve an
amendment to the Building
Department fee schedule for
changes to the plan-review fees.
The city wants to amend the
fees to charge in 15-minute incre-
ments for the first hour and by the
hour thereafter. The resolution
says the purpose is to charge less
for small jobs that do not require
further review.
An update on the progress
of the Florida Department of
Transportation project on
Sombrero Beach Road.
The $4.3 million road recon-
struction 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.

'Vandy' money is no sure shot


Governor yet
to sign off
on legislation
By KYLE TEAL
and SAM NISSEN
kteal@keynoter.corn

While supporters of the
scuttling of the USS
Vandenberg are hailing state
House and Senate passage of a


bill that could direct $1 million
in money to the project, it's no
done deal yet.
It still takes a signature from
Gov. Charlie Crist before the
money tree shakes loose, and
this is a lean financial year for
the state with money being cut
at agencies statewide.
According to Monroe County
lobbyist Robert Reyes, the
money passed both legislative


briefs


Expect traffic delays
in the Upper Keys

An annual bicycle event
scheduled for today and Sunday
is expected to cause traffic
delays in the Upper Keys, so
travelers should plan extra time
if they are going to be driving
through the Key Largo area
those days.
The Maroone MS 150 Bike
Tour, which raises money for
multiple-sclerosis research, is
expected to attract 2,700 bicy-
clists. It's expected to cause the
most traffic problems today
between noon and 5 p.m. but
people will begin seeing bicy-
clists on Card Sound Road and
in the Keys around 9 a.m.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies, paid by the
event organizers, will be sta-
tioned on Card Sound Road and
at mile markers 102 and 106.
The riders travel from
Miami-Dade County on Card
Sound, then on U.S. 1 to John
Pennekamp Coral Reef State
Park. They leave the Keys
Sunday beginning at 7 a.m. and
travelers can expect delays that
morning, too, until about 9:30
a.m., with heavy bike traffic on


Card Sound until about 11.

16 autos burglarized
in one single day

More than 16 autos were bur-
glarized in Marathon Tuesday,
according to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
that although only eight victims
wanted to make official reports,
at least eight other autos were
entered, with glove boxes and
center consoles rifled through.
However, very little was taken in
any of the burglaries.
A cell phone was taken from
a work van on 11th Street; a fish-
ing knife, cash and cell phone
were taken from a rental vehicle
at the Hammocks Inn on 16th
Street; and a GPS was taken
from a truck at the Galway Bay
mobile-home park. Other vehi-
cles on James Avenue, Knights
Key and 17th Court were
entered but nothing was taken.
All the vehicles were left
unlocked so these appear to be
crimes of opportunity, said
Sheriff Rick Roth, adding that
simply locking your car door
would prevent such acts.


chambers as a line item through
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
The governor has line-item
veto power over that agency's
budget, said Sterling Ivey,
press secretary for the gover-
nor. He said Crist hadn't been
briefed, on the Vandenberg
project and would not be until
the end of the legislative, ses-
sion May 2.
- If the governor signs off, the
520-foot former military ship
would still need more than $1
million in funding to be sunk as
an artificial reef off Key West.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson has said the legisla-
tive funding would lead to
additional funding from the
state's Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic Develop-
ment to cover the rest.
Monroe County Commis-
sioner Mario Di Gennaro has


said he wants to salvage the
project, beset by financial
shortfalls, by pushing the sink-
ing into the winter. He's asking
the County Commission and
Tourist Development Council,
boards which he sits on, to
extend their funding of it to
meet the new time frame.
The ship was to be sunk by


May 15. The project is 40 per-
cent over budget and the
Virginia shipyard preparing the
ship for sinking has placed a
lien on it seeking $1.6.4 million
in unpaid bills.
Key West City Com-
missioner Bill Verge has said
the lien did not come as a sur-
prise to project supporters..

Agencies start addressing sewer cold spots


County, FKAA
are trying to
develop plan
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


. In summer 2010, the Health
Department will be in the
position of telling somewhere
between 800 and 1,000 Keys
homeowners they need to
replace their septic sewer sys-
tems even though there is no
central sewer to which they
can hook up. And many of
those people might not be able


to scrape up the $20,000 or
more to install a new waste-
water disposal system.
That's why the Health
Department and Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority are work-
ing on a plan.to address those
so-called cold spots.
"My real thought for push-
ing this is that people deserve
an answer as to what they're
faced with. And if there's a
way to do it and get part of the
problem solved, we're all bet-
ter off," Monroe County
Health Department Executive
Director Bob Eadie said.


Aqueduct Authority
Executive Director Jim
Reynolds got his board's
approval Thursday to work
with the Health Department to
find alternatives for people
who are not going to be con-
nected to the many central
sewer systems under construc-
tion in the Keys.
State law gives all of the
Keys until July 2010 to
upgrade wastewater treatment
to protect water quality around
the Keys.
"The county will be refin-
ing its ,cold-spot implementa-
tion plan but there will be
areas that will not be centrally
sewered," Reynolds said.
"And some of these people
might not be able to coordi-
.nate a replacement of their
septic system, or won't be able
to afford it, or simply can't get
a loan."


'e.y .il[ s.com

| ^^art^^^^i'U^0


All of the so-called hot
spots regions where .septic
systems threaten the health of
nearshore waters are on the
way to being connected to
central sewers.
But there are some house-
holds that are just too remote
from the new systems to make
them economically feasible to
connect to central sewers,
areas like the outer reaches of
Big Pine and Little Torch keys
and homes along Card Sound
Road in North Key Largo.
"We're not looking for
fines; we're looking for com-
pliance," Eadie said. "So if we
can figure how to put these
people together into small sys-
tems, you get lowered costs all
the way around and we should
be able to get better compli-
ance."
There are no details yet
how this would work, both


men say, but there are many
possibilities, including poten-
tial grants and bonds that
could allow homeowners to
spread the expense out over
years the same advantages
that homeowners get when
connecting to central systems.
And Eadie said there might
be ways to create small pack-
age systems that encompass a
few households at once.
However the plan evolves,
he said it would be voluntary;
homeowners will have the
choice whether to install their
own systems or work with the
government to keep costs
down.
"This would be an opt-in
system," he said. "It's not like
a central system where the law
says you have to connect. But
there should be cost savings
and less headaches."

Authority's Florida City water
plant.
When complete, the
reverse-osmosis plant will turn
saltwater into potable water.
The injection well will, be
used to dispose of brine
removed from the water,
according to an engineering
report from the utility.
Youngquist Brothers, based in
Fort Myers, was the only qual-
ified contractor to submit a bid.
According to a staff report
provided to the Aqueduct
Authority board when it
approved the bid, Youngquist
originally bid more than was
budgeted for the job.
Aqueduct Authority
Engineer Ray Shimokubo said
the $6.9 million price tag was


negotiated down to $6.3 mil-
lion by removing expenses for
standby time, an extra staging
area and other expenses.
Reynolds said it will take
between eight and 10 months
to construction the well.
The reverse-osmosis plant is
part of a $30 million effort to
provide a new and sustainable
water supply for the Keys. It
will eventually process
between 4.5 million and 6 mil-
lion gallons of water daily,
converting brackish water from
the Floridan Aquifer to potable
water. New wells, reaching
down some 1,800 feet, will
bring the water up to the plant.
Reverse osmosis removes
salt by forcing the water
through membranes, straining
out impurities.
The Aqueduct Authority
already has smaller desalina-
tion plants in Marathon and the
Lower Keys to treat seawater
should its pipeline that sup-
plies all the Keys water suffer
serious hurricane damage.
Those plants are fired up only
when there's an emergency,
Reynolds said.

More school cuts are coming


Most are from
the campuses,
some at district
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Keys public schools will lose
about 37 jobs and 17 more will be
cut from district offices under a
plan laid out by Monroe County
School District officials this
week.
Cuts at individual schools will
be made by their principals, who
can choose how to restructure
their staffs, Superintendent


Randy Acevedo said after the
Tuesday School Board meeting.
The cuts in schools will reduce
spending $2.73 million.
The plan refers to cutting a
number of "allocations" rather
than actual jobs. An "allocation"
is a salary standard measure that
doesn't always correspond to one
job.
While a teacher's salary may
equal one allocation, an assistant
principle's is 1.44 allocations and
an office clerk's is 0.65 of an allo-
cation.
Principals could save some
jobs by letting "go higher-paid


senior administrators or they
could save senior employees by
cutting more lower-level posi-
tions.
The district office will lose
five maintenance allocations, two
from transportation, four from
special-education programs and
six clerks. Combined with other
savings, Acevedo said he would
cut spending by $3.55 million.
Acevedo introduced a school-
by-school plan. In it, the adminis-
tration recommends certain jobs
bear the brunt of the budget axe:
prep athletic trainers, substitute
teachers and assistant principals,
,among others.
Marathon High School will
lose 4.375 allocations, the most in
the district, according to school


documents. Key West's Glynn
Archer Elementary will lose the
least, 1.938.
The difference in allocations is
intended to spread the pain to
schools that have more total allo-
cations or are expected to have
fewer students, Acevedo said.
He said he hopes the district
can avoid firing anyone by not
renewing teachers' contracts,
placing administrators back in
classrooms and offering incen-
tives for early retirement. But he
also said many could reject the
changes and some employees
will lose their jobs.
"If the early-retirement folks
take advantage of that program,
for every position that takes that,
that's one less in that precinct that


will be cut," Acevedo said.
School Board member John
Dick said he wants more cuts at
the district level.
He said Acevedo is "asking
too much from the schools and
we're not getting enough from
the central office."
Board member Andy Griffiths
said the district office has good
reason to not make further cuts,
including challenges created by
the Keys geography.
But Griffiths said thinks the
largesse of the schools' adminis-
tration has grown unchecked. He
said he wants the district to shift
to treating principals like chief
executive officers of individual
schools, decentralizing the school
administration.

Sewer plant
would cost
$2,5 million
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority board on Thursday
approved the $2.5 million pur-
chase of the privately owned Key
Haven sewer plant.
"We still need to formally
make the offer to the utility,"
Executive Director Jim Reynolds
said, "but we think it will be
acceptable."
The plant, which serves more
than 500 homes on the north side
of Stock Island, is owned by the
Lujan family, which originally
developed the neighborhood in
the 1960s.
The Aqueduct Authority is the
lead sewer agency for unincorpo-
rated Monroe County except in


Key Largo, which has its own
sewer district, and is working to
consolidate sewer treatment in
the Lower Keys. Reynolds said
doing so provides an economy of
scale that keeps the monthly cost
down for all customers.
If the offer is accepted, the
.Aqueduct Authority will begin a
series of community meetings so
residents will know what they're
in for.
"Residents, either way, will
need to upgrade," said Reynolds.
"The capital costs are similar,
whether we do it or the current
owners do it. The real value is
that the operating costs will be
better if we move the effluent up
the road."
That means running pipes to
the county's plant on Rockland
Key, which is just breaking
ground. But there are other
options, Reynolds said, and input
from the residents will be the


deciding factor in which way the
utility decides to go.
In the meantime, negotiations
for the Aqueduct Authority's pos-
sible purchase of the Stock Island
sewer plant owned by KW
Resort Utilities have stalled.
"We couldn't come to terms'
so we're concentrating our
efforts on Key Haven," Reynolds
said.
On April 15, the Florida
Public Service Commission filed
a motion to resume the process
for a rate-hike hearing requested
by KW Resort Utilities.
Company President William
Smith filed a request for the
increase in September, claiming
upgrades to the plant mandated
by the state mean the utility needs
to raise its fees to pay for them.
The PSC set an October hear-
ing now that the sales negotia-
tions fell through.
The utility wants to raise the
monthly rate by nearly 60 per-
cent, which could have its 1,550-
plus customers paying more than
$60 a month. The PSC approved
a temporary increase of just
under 20 percent until the hearing
establishes whether the entire
increase is necessary.

Village manager: More sewer staff needed


By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Islamorada's Public Works
chief warned of more sewage
backups unless the village hires
full-time staff, soon to manage
its sewer system.
Myles Milander, director of
the Public Works and Utilities
Department, told the Village
Council he wants to hire a utili-
ties supervisor-inspector, two
sewer technicians and an in-
house engineer.
The meeting Wednesday
where the needs were outlined
was a workshop, so the council


didn't vote.
Milander said the employees
would bolster the services pro-
vided by U.S. Water Services, a
company the village pays to
operate and maintain the North
Plantation Key wastewater
treatment facility.
Problems with parts of the
Plantation Key sewer system
caused sewage backups into
homes for several months after
the system was hooked up in
2006. Uproar over the problems
was one factor in the resigna-
tion of former Village Manager

Gary Word.
Most problems have been
fixed, but Milander said U.S.
Water Services has only a part-
time maintenance technician
devoted to the plant, not enough
to oversee a system serving
about 450 properties and an
additional 700 homes and busi-
nesses in the near future.
"We're starting to see signs
of backups again," Milander
said. "We're running a part-time,
utility."
Islamorada pays U.S. Water
$273,145 a year. Milander said
that c6st would rise to $454,178
to hire three full-time, in-house
wastewater treatment workers
in May, and go up an additional
$91,200 for another mainte-
nance technician when the sec-
ond phase of the system comes
on line at a later date.
Councilman Dave Boerner
questioned why Islamorada
would continue using U.S.
Water if it isn't satisfied with its
performance.
"There's a conflict. We're
not getting the service from
U.S. Water, but we want to
expand service with U.S.
Water," Boerner said to

Milander.
Milander said the company
has trucks and equipment that
would cost Islamorada more to
buy and staff than it would to
continue with U.S. Water.
Village Manager Ken Fields
agreed.
"This is just a transition step
that gets us to the next level,"
Fields said.
Councilwoman Jill Zima
Borski said not hiring the full-
time workers risked overwork-
ing Milander. "I'm afraid if we
don't give Myles some help,
we're going to lose him as
well," she said.
Also Wednesday, Fields said
time is running out for
Islamorada to show the state it
is serious about complying with
the 2010 deadline to connect
homes and businesses to cen-
tralized sewage systems.


Fields recommended explor-
ing areas within the four-island
village to build treatment
plants, and said he is against a
proposal to pipe wastewater to
Key Largo's system. Not only
would this save money, he said,
but it would also let Islamorada
keep its own effluent, which he
called a "valuable and impor-
tant commodity," especially
during water shortages.
"The idea of pumping all our
wastewater to Key Largo is no
longer an option," he told the
five-member council.
While Boerner said a deal
with Key Largo should not be
ruled out, the other council
members agreed with Fields.
"We're done with Key Largo
unless they put an offer on the
table we simply could not
refuse in our face," Mayor Cathi
Hill said.


Ethics panel

clears Popham


Coleman alleged
she had conflict
as commissioner
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Former Monroe Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham
was cleared late Friday afternoon
in an ethics investigation ibnstigat-
ed by Key West attorney Jerry
Coleman in February.
The Florida Commission on
Ethics voted to dismiss the com-
plaint against Popham "for legal
insufficiency."
"From a personal perspective,
I'm very pleased," Popham said.
"I knew I hadn't done anything
wrong, but being accused, you
never know in a professional
manner how that comes across
for people that don't know you.
And I've always. worked in a
fashion that was above board in
my role as a planning commis-
sioner."
Coleman had alleged that
Popham's partnership with her
husband Bruce in owning the
Marathon Boat Yard was a con-
flict of interest as she made deci-
sions on a proposed waterfront-
protection law while she was on


the commission. Coleman insinu-
ated her business would benefit
from the ordinance.
The Ethics Commission noted
that Popham's property would
not be affected by the ordinance
since it is in Marathon and
"would not be governed by the
regulation" since the Planning
Commission covers the unincor-
porated areas.
In addition, Coleman claimed
the ordinance would give her
business an advantage over his
client, Robbie Reckwerdt, who
owns Robbie's Marina on Stock
Island, which is in the unincorpo-
rated area. The commission's
response, however, was that "past
decisions of our find that any
gain or loss to a member of a
public body from actions of the
body affecting competitors of the
member is too remote or specula-
tive to come within the scope of
the law."
Popham quit her Planning
Commission post Feb. 5, one day
after the County Commission
adopted a version of the working-
waterfront law she felt gave in
too much to developers. The state
Department of Community
Affairs has since rejected that
version of the law.

Panel: Exploit


package plants


Gillis says
it would reduce
sewer costs
BY KEN HOFFMAN
Keynoter Contributor


An Islamorada citizens
committee has recommended
using existing small sewage
treatment plants as a step
toward meeting a state man-
date for advanced wastewater
treatment.
Deb Gillis, representing the
village's Citizens Advisory
Committee for Water Quality,
said at the Village Council
meeting Thursday that so-
called package plants already
in use at hotels, shopping cen-
ters and hospitals can handle
more sewage than they now
process.
"By using the package
plants, Islamorada will reduce
the time and costs needed to
install a centralized waste-
water processing plant," Gillis
said.
Package plants could be the
backbone of the village's pro-
posed central sewer system,
Gillis said, and would save
Islamorada money when used
instead of being dismantled or
destroyed.
Gillis said there is still a
need for a plan to recycle
wastewater and that the North
Plantation Key sewer plant
must be upgraded to accept the
added volume from the pack-
age plants. The council didn't
vote on the proposal.
Also Thursday:
Fire Chief William
Wagner told council members
the Fire Department needs a
new ambulance. He said he
wants to purchase one for
$210,512.32 and that the
Federal Emergency
Management Agency might
partially fund the purchase.
Islamorada uses a 2000
Ford F450 ambulance, which
was strained by heavy use and
exposure damage in the busy
2005 hurricane season.
Wagner said the service life of
emergency vehicles should be
around 10 years, but Hurricane
Wilma added to the fatigue


factor, making a new ambu-
lance necessary.
The cost was .estimated at
more than $34,000 to bring the
Ford F450 back into top condi-
tion. Because the older ambu-
lance is not able to be used as
a secondary emergency vehi-
cle, the village will sell it at
auction after a new ambulance
arrives.
+ A recommendation for
the village to apply for mone-
tary assistance from the
Florida Boating Improvement
Fund turned into a discussion
about using the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office's
watercraft crew to maintain
buoys in nearshore locations.
The Florida Boating
Improvement Fund provides
grants for bohter education and
safety, and for aids to naviga-
tion. Eligible projects include
replacing recreational channel
marking and other uniform
waterway markers. A grant
from the improvement fund
requires a 25 percent match.
As soon as the application
for the fund was approved,
Councilman Dave Boerner
questioned why deputies
assigned to watercraft duties
could not perform buoy main-
tenance. A $31,000 contract is
included in the Public Works
and Utilities Department oper-
ating budget for a firm to
repair or replace any of the
136 buoys in the waters sur-
rounding Upper Matecumbe
and Lower Matecumbe keys.
"I am against using sworn
sheriff's department personnel
for this maintenance. What
happens when. [deputies] are
very busy and the maintenance
is not being done, or they are
doing maintenance and are
needed elsewhere?" Village
Manager Ken Fields said.
Commissioner Mike
Reckwerdt sided with Fields.
"There will be extra wear
and tear on the [sheriff's
department's] rescue equip-
ment because of chafing and
barnacles on the anchor lines.
There is commercial equip-
ment for just that sort of work
and the deputies aren't diving
with it," he said.

New county inspector to narrow focus


Illegal
contractors
are targets
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A new Monroe County code-
enforcement officer will focus
specifically on rules covering
construction contractors.
Members of the Florida Keys
Contractors Association not only
welcome the increased over-
sight, they are helping to pay for


it.
An $11 fee added to county
building permits generates
money for the position, accord-
ing to the trade group.
"I'm totally in favor of it,"
said Jim Aultman, a Marathon
contractor since 1970 and a life-
time director of the Florida Keys
Contractors Association.
"It will help protect both the
public and the licensed contrac-
tors," he said
Drew Trivette, director of
Growth Management for
Monroe County, is scheduled to


speak at Tuesday's regular meet-
ing of the contractors association
to outline specifics of the new
position.
Trivette was not available for
comment at press time.
According to the association,
the new inspector will visit
active work sites to "ensure there
is proper licensing for the work
being performed, all insurance
requirements are met, including
worker's [compensation] for all
employees on site, and proper


permits have been obtained."
The inspections are expected
to target illegal contractors.
Illegal contracting "has
always been a problem in
Monroe County," Aultman said.
The contractors' association
has taken a position that the spe-
cial $11 fee should be in place
for only a year on a trial basis..
After a year, an association
statement says, "the fines col-
lected [from violations' should
be sufficient to support the cost."


Islamorada has long planned
to enforce its rules against illegal
vacation rentals with an annual
fee imposed on approved vaca-
tion-rental operations within the,
village.
Candidates for the Monroe
County Commission also have
been invited to speak at the
Tuesday meeting of the Florida
Keys Contractors Association, at
the Sombrero Country Club in
Marathon. For information, call
the association at 743-9409.

Despite a unanimous deci-
sion to continue the discussion
until next month, the Monroe

mental mitigation for new
development on Big Pine and
No Name keys.
Since rejecting a November

new-home builders to pay
upward. of $100,000 to set aside


NOTICE OF MAJOR DEVELOPMENT


The Key West City Commission will hold a Public Hearing at Old City Hall, 510 Greene Street, Key West,
Florida on May 6, 2008 at 6:00 P.M., or as soon thereafter as the matter shall arise on the agenda:
The purpose of the Hearing is to consider a resolution for:
A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT FOR
APPROVAL OF A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION FOR A 20
UNIT RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE HISTORIC DISTRICT
FOR PROPERTY LOCATED AT 119-135 SIMONTON STREET
(RE#00000240-000000)
The file may be reviewed during regular office hours, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., at the City Clerk's Office,
525 Angela Street.
If signing, special seating, or other accommodations are required, please call 809-3831
(TDD number 809-1111) 24 hours prior to the meeting.
Pursuant to F.S. 286.0105, notice is given that if a person decides to appeal any decision made by the
Commission with respect to any matter considered at such meeting or hearing, that person will need a
record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, that person may need to ensure that a verbatim
record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the
appeal is to be based. / ( '

land for habitat for Key deer and
other endangered species on the
islands, the commission has
been seeking a more user-
friendly proposal.
Wednesday, county staff pro-
vided the commission with a list
of 288 properties the county has
purchased on the two islands for
conservation and donated to the
state.
"The plan would be to use
them for mitigation for public
projects like widening U.S. 1
and Mariner's Park," Planning
Commissioner Jim Cameron
said, "then use our bank of miti-
gation [land] we still have for
private construction."
But land the county has sold
to the state for conservation can-
not be used for mitigation,
Cameron said.
"We bought it, and the whole
idea is conservation, so who
cares who actually bought it as
long as its conserved?"
Cameron asked.
Development on Big Pine
and No Name keys is limited by
a habitat conservation plan


because of the endangered
species. "
Since the plan was adopted in
2006, the county has been using
land it's acquired and been hold-
ing it in its so-called mitigation
bank to offset private develop-
ment. But that land bank is run-
ning dry.
The delay in creating a miti-
gation plan will allow county
staff to come up with an actual
conservation value for, each of
the parcels on the list presented
Wednesday.
The habitat conservation plan
requires a certain amount of
land be set aside for conserva-
tion to offset development, and
hinges on how many Key deer
will be killed by human
encroachment. This so-called
harvest or H factor has
been assigned to every parcel on
the islands.
Ten new homes are allowed
each year on Big Pine and No
Name, and two of them must be
affordable housing. The county
allocates building permits on a
quarterly basis and has been
issuing them since a moratorium
was removed in January.

Bay-bottom lease goes to Cabinet Tuesday


City wants to
add 39 slips
at the harbor
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Port Director
Raymond Archer says aides to
Gov. Charlie Crist and other
Florida Cabinet members were
receptive this week when he
pitched a proposed lease to
extend the bay bottom off the
city by nearly 150,000 square
feet. That would add slips at the
Key West bight and marina.
"We were up there
[Tallahassee] to process our
bay-bottom application for the
Key West Bight submerged land
lease," Archer said.
The meeting was in prepara-
tion for Tuesday morning, when
the Cabinet will take up the
application.
The city rents Key West
Harbor's bay bottom from the
state. In 2007, the city paid
$73,054 in rent, or 6 percent of
all wet-slip revenue with a 30
percent discount, according to


Port Project Manager Doug
Bradshaw. The lease began in
January 1999, and the city paid
$27,270 that year based on
square footage.
The city's lease for the bight
expired in May 2001. If plans
are approved, the city would
extend its submerged 4and lease
with the state by 10 more years,
and would add docks, pilings
and increase marina holdings
from 347,708 square feet to
497,501 square feet.
The lease would add 39 slips,
making the total in the bay bot-
tom 188 slips. But Archer says
14 of those would be temporary
floating docks that would be
used only during January sail-
boat races.
"There are some concerns
that it would impact the ingress
and egress," Archer said.
The application states 90
percent of the boat slips "will be
available for rent to the general
public on a first-come, first-
served basis."
The application also includes
an extension of the pier at the
bight, but Archer says that


won't happen if it inconven-
iences someone else.
"Boat sizes will range in
lengths from 20 to 140 feet with
drafts up to 12 feet," the appli-
cation reads.


The expanded
lease originally
included dock
extensions that
would prevent
schooners
from using
the harbor.


The expanded lease original-
ly included dock extensions that
would prevent schooners from
using the harbor, according to a
letter by Paul Worthington,
owner of the Schooner Wharf
Bar, read at a Key West Bight
meeting. Archer said at the
meeting that the city would not
extend the pier the maximum


planned length in order to
accommodate the larger ships.
The city had a bill of
$21,100 in past fines linked to
blunders from a previous port
operations team. Those fines
cover the construction of seven
unauthorized floating docks,
allowing vessels to moor in
restricted areas, ignoring
required manatee information
displays and incorrectly
installing new pilings, among
other missteps discovered by
the state Department of
Environmental Protection in
2004.
"All of that's been paid,"
Archer said. "Crist's assistants


asked us a lot about the infrac-
tions in place."
The Key West Bight Board
approved the expenditure at its
March 4 meeting as did the City
Commission later that night.
If the Cabinet approves the
plans Tuesday, they still need to
go before the City Commission,
Bight Board and DEP, Archer
said.
."All this is doing is giving us
the ability to do something with
the bay bottom," he said.

Nissen contributed to this
report.

Home buys draw review


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It took more than two years to
get three Key West properties set
aside as permanently affordable
rentals, .and last week's unani-
mous approval by the Monroe
County Commission should have
been the final blessing.
But now some behind-the-
scenes lobbying moved Mayor
Sonny McCoy to call a special
meeting to take another look.
"Some citizens questioned the
purchases," McCoy said. "There
was concern that they were not
good investments. When you get
calls like that you have to, as a
government body that is expend-
ing money, go out and look at the
properties."
The commission will convene
as the Land Authority at 10 a.m.
at the Harvey Government Center
in Key West to reconsider the
purchase of three units on
Patterson Street, three units on
Third Street and a duplex on
Albury Street in Bahama Village.
The purchases total $2.4 mil-
lion. Two of the parcels would be
conveyed to the Key West
Housing Authority; one would be


conveyed to the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust; and all
would be maintained as afford-
able rentals under income guide-
lines under a 99-year lease agree-
ment.
The Key West City Com-
mission unanimously approved
the parcels as nominees for pur-
chase and the Land7 Authority's
advisory board also approved
them. On April 16, the County
Commission unanimously OK'd
the purchases.
"The key for me is saving the
families that are here," said Omar
Garcia, a Key West firefighter
who owns the Albury Street
house. He also chairs the city's
affordable housing committee,
but that body had nothing to do
with the home's nomination for
government purchase.
"This has been a very trans-
parent process," Garcia said.
"Key West strongly supports the
preservation of existing homes
for affordable housing. It's
important to me that the family
that is living [in the Albury Street
home] will be able to continue to
live there. That was one of the


assurances I needed before agree-
ing to this."
Families live in all of the
units.
Key West developer Ed Swift
said he's one of the people behind
the complaints to the commission.
"I have opposed them from
the beginning," he said. "I think it
is a totally irresponsible use of
these funds."
Swift has become one of the
most vocal advocates for afford-
able housing and is a key player
in most of the projects that have
gone up the past decade. He says
that according to his calculations,
the county's subsidies for more
than 540 affordable units can be
broken down to about $24,000
per unit.
He said by purchasing existing
units in Key West at market rate
and retaining them as rentals, the
county is proposing an expendi-
ture that breaks down into a cost
of more than $300,000 per unit.
"My opposition has nothing to
do with whether these homes are
worth it," he said. "It's just not a
responsible, businesslike expen-
diture of these funds to put the
most people into the most
homes."

Snead enters race
for Marathon council

Advantage Rehab & Fitness
owner Ginger Snead filed paper-
work with the Monroe County
Supervisor of Elections Office
Tuesday to enter the November
race for Marathon City Council.
Born and raised in Florida,
Snead has been a Keys resident for
15 years. She is admittedly a polit-
ical newcomer and said she does-
n't have many issues of her own.
"I want to listen to what
everyone else has to say and let
that voice be heard," Snead said.
"I'm not political at all; that's not
my nature. I just think everyone
should be heard."
Snead said the city needs to
"keep the ball rolling" on sewers
and that she intends to be very
spending conscious if elected.
"I want to look at how we're
spending our money, but I'll take
the guide of the people who elect
me," she said. "Obviously sewers
are important, but council is
doing a great job with that."


Snead is the third candidate to
announce intentions to run in
Marathon; "Bicycle" Joan
Nelson and Kevin Woodland'
have already declared. The elec-
tion is Nov. 4.

Gardner files
for sewer board

A second candidate has filed to
run for the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District board.
Tavernier resident Chris
Gardner says he has been attend-
ing the board's meetings as a del-
egate for the Tavernier
Community Association.
"I was watching and admiring
what this board was accomplish-
ing," he said. "There's an opening,
and I wanted to play a part in that."
Last week, Paul Christian
filed his intention to seek a seat
on the board.
There are two seats up for
grabs in the Nov. 4 election, those
held by incumbents Gary
Bauman and Clyde Bullock.
Baumari will step down, as he


has filed his intention to run for
the District 5 seat on the Monroe
County Commission. Bullock
has not yet announced his plans.
Seats on the board are nonpar-
tisan. Board members serve four
years.
Candidate qualifying for all
Monroe County elections except
judicial is June 16 through June
20. The primary is scheduled for
Aug. 26 and the general election
is Nov. 4.

Chamber hosts
cleanup day

The Key West Chamber of
Commerce is going green May 3
by hosting a Clean and Green
"Love Your Island" Citywide
Cleanup from 8 to 10 a.m.
The cleanup will target the area
from the ocean to the gulf bor-
dered by Simonton and Whitehead
streets. Volunteers should meet in
front of the chamber building at
402 Wall St. at 8 a.m.
For registration information
call the chamber at 294-2587.

Permit planning starts


Residents give
input to create
new system
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@ keynoter.com


Key West Planner Amy
Kimball-Murley on Thursday
led one of what will total six
city planning workshops to
receive public input and create
a building permit allocation
system that's "fair" and "equi-
table."
Those attending questioned
the use and fairness of the
rate-of-growth-ordinance, the
allocation system implement-
ed more than a decade ago by
the state Department of
Community Affairs.
DCA decided how many
allocations can be distributed
based upon hurricane evacua-
tion times, and developers
must obtain the allocations
before they can get permits.
The allocations sell for about
$200,000 on the open market.
There are 143 left remain-
ing with the city.
But a February Monroe
County Circuit Court decision


ruled the system expired in
2002, and the Key West City
Commission consequently
implemented a six-month
restriction on building except
for affordable housing.
"It works to the .advantage
of the rich," said consultant
Don Craig of the Craig Co. He



Currently, any
residential unit
larger than
6Q0 square
feet with a
kitchen is one
full ROGO
allocation.


suggested a system that ranks
project applications in the
Planning Department and
meets more environmental
conservation standards.
Craig also suggested grant-

ing allocation exemptions to
assisted-living facilities.
Environmental group Last
Stand member George
Halloran said that if a system
similar to ROGO is imple-
mented, larger units should
.count for more than one allo-
cation. Currently, any residen-
tial unit larger than 600 square
feet with a kitchen is one full
ROGO allocation while any-
thing under that is .55 of an
allocation. Transient units are
.58.
"Maybe when we get to a
3,000-square-foot unit, we
could require they have to two
units," Halloran said.
"It could create a high side
of the balance in square
footage," Kimball-Murley
said. '
Resident Bob Kelly said
any units up for construction
should be for rent rather than
purchase because of the Keys'
lack of rental units. He also
said the understaffed Planning
Department could use a little
help.
"You could put together a
virtual planning department,"
Kelly said. "Some of us have
time to devote to research
work."

'She's going to change the world'

At 20, Marathon's Greenman already making climate-change waves


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Kelley Greenman is trying to
change the world one carbon
footprint at a time.
And if you ask her mentor,
Debbie Harrison, it's a matter of
when, not if, that will happen.
"She's going to change the
world," Harrison, Florida direc-
tor of the World Wildlife Fund,
said. "She's the reason I know I
can retire-and she will drive the
progress this country makes in
addressing climate policy."
That's a bold statement, but at
just 20 years old, Greenman, a
Marathon native, is already a cli-
mate-change policy veteran and
boasts an impressive list of expe-
riences in the field about which
she is so passionate.
She began with her own -
Greenman doesn't eat meat
because beef production is car-
bon intensive and some day
soon the junior at Washington
University in St. Louis hopes to
affect footprints on a global level
as a policy maker, likely in
Washington, D.C.
"You need to get it done
through the government, but
that's not exclusive to getting it
done everywhere else. Policy,
like any other topic, is driven by
what' the people want,"
Greenman said.
But it all began here in the
Keys for Greenman, as a student
coordinator for the Alpha
Program, part of the state-funded
Monroe County Gifted and
Talented Program at Stanley.
Switlik Elementary School.
Barely a teenager, Greenman
acted as a student coordinator for
a group of the Middle Keys'
brightest young minds and led
them to testify before the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission in favor of forming
the Tortugas Ecological Reserve.
Harrison said the Reserve is the
largest no-take zone of its kind in
the Western Hemisphere.
The group made a presenta-
tion that garnered a rousing ova-
tion initiated by thelcommission
chairman, Harrison said.
"The day it was ending, the
kids came up to me and said, 'We
don't want to stop doing this
work. Can we continue?' We got
together and decided to become

our own group," Harrison said.
Greenman recommended the
name Team Panda in honor of the
World Wildlife Fund's logo.
I Harrison said she remembers
what she believes was the
moment Greenman met her pas-
sion in life when the group
attended public hearings on cli-
mate change coordinated by
World Wildlife Fund Inter-
national climate scientist Laura
Hansen.
"I've known Kelley for a large
part of her life and I've never
seen her as moved as she was. It
was a combination of anger,
shock and fear all at once," she
said. "She came up to Dr. Hansen
and myself and said, 'This is my
generation's issue.' From that
point on she became totally com-
mitted."
Greenman said Team Panda's
shift toward climate-change work
was natural.
"We were wanting to protect
this marine area, but there was a
human impact we weren't con-
sidering and that was climate

Holocaust exhibit opens


Keys physician
to present dad's
recorded history
The Keys Jewish Community
Center in Tavernier is marking
Holocaust Remembrance Day
Thursday with the opening of an
exhibit and a presentation by a
Keys doctor whose father helped
liberate a concentration camp.
The enormity of World War
II's Holocaust the German
government's systematic, state-
sponsored program of killing
more than 6 million Jews as well
as others, primarily Gypsies and
the mentally and physically dis-
abled, in the belief they were
inferior often makes its details
difficult to absorb. So each year
the Jewish Community Center's
exhibit explores and amplifies
one part of the whole.-
At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, this
year's exhibit, "Holocaust: The
Aftermath," opens.
The Nazis succeeded in erad-
icating most of European Jewry.
But the end of the war still saw
tens of thousands of survivors.
What condition were they in?
What would happen to them
now? Could any of them recon-
struct their pre-war lives? Were
they welcome back to the coun-
tries their families had lived in,
sometime for many hundreds of
years? How do you move on with


Sunday event is
for victims, kids

The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office and Upper
Keys YMCA are holding what
they call Healthy Kids Day
and Justice for Victims Day
Sunday at the Key Largo
Community Park, on the
oceanside off U.S. 1 near mile
marker 99.5.
The event will feature free
food, beverages and Sno
Cones; face painting; and a
bounce house for kids.
The Sheriff's Office will have
various special units on display
and kids will get to tour police
vehicles and look at specialized
police equipment.
Also present.will be volun-
teers with the Masonic


life after an experience like that,
when many survivors felt that the
dead were the lucky ones?
The exhibit attempts to answer
these kinds of questions. It begins
with the condition of the sur-
vivors and the new world they
faced, describes the conditions in
the Displaced Persons camps the
allies ran throughout Europe and
shows the crucial role of the
soon-to-be state of Israel in the
aftermath.
Following the official open-
ing, Steven Smith will present a
memorial program starting at 7
p.m. that will cover what life was
like as a prisoner in the Dachau
concentration camp from 1933 to
1945 as' well as a detailed presen-
tation of the liberation of Dachau
by elements of the 42nd and 45th
divisions of the U.S. Seventh
Army.
Smith's father, Louis Smith,
(1920-1991) was a battalion sur-
geon attached to the 45th
Division and entered Dachau at
its liberation. Steven Smith will
present his father's photographs
and a 1984 videotaped eyewit-
ness interview recalling these
events, U.S. Army movie docu-
mentation, photographs of others,
including the German SS, and
interviews with other liberators
and prisoners.
The material to be presented is
very intense and not suitable for

Attention Homeowners and Businessowners
of Monroe County

Legislation is being proposed that will seriously impact home-
owners insurance premiums for new purchases in the Keys.

The Florida Windstorm Underwriting Association (Windpool or
FWUA) was created in the '70s to provide windstorm coverage
in the Keys because it wasn't available in the private insurance
sector. FWUA expanded to include many coastal areas in the
state. FWUA became part of Citizens Property Insurance
Corporation (Citizens) when it was created in August 2002. For
over 40 years Citizens (FWUA) has written the wind-only policy
in the Keys while private carriers write non-wind perils such as
fire, theft, liability, etc. This gives policyholders more compre-
hensive coverage than a full perils policy from Citizens.

If this new proposed legislation is passed, Citizen's will know
longer offer a "Wind-Only" policy. What this. means is that, with
no wind-only policy available, any new residential or commercial
policies will have to be written with windstorm either by the pri-
vate insurance market or Citizens. Since history tells us that the
private carriers will not write windstorm insurance in the Keys,
all new policies will have to be written with Citizens. This will
result in much higher premiums and less coverage.
Comparison rating examples show that premiums will be double
and even triple what they are now. 'While this is for new pur-
chases, it would also apply if you lived in the Keys and moved
into a new home.

If you feel, as we do, that this is both unfair and discriminatory
to Keys residents, contact Representative Ron Saunders and
make your feelings known.

because of human actions.
Entanglement in fishing gear;
impacts from boats; demand for
meat, eggs and shells; and devel-
opment of coastal areas have all
taken their toll on these federally
protected species.
So if they're to survive, they
need our help. Toward this end,
many coastal areas, including
Monroe County, have passed
sea-turtle protection ordinances.
Here are some ways you can
help sea turtles during the nest-
ing season:
+ If you see a turtle on the
beach, be quiet and still. Noise
and activity may cause her to
abort her nesting attempt or cover
her nest too quickly, resulting in
lower hatchling survival rates.
Never try to handle a nesting tur-
tle.
Don't walk the nesting
beach with a flashlight and never
shine a light in a turtle's eyes.
Never use a flash to photograph
turtles.
Lights on the beach will cause

ocean, often to their deaths.
Check the lights in and around
your house. If they're shedding
light on the beach, they should be
turned off, shielded or changed
to low-wattage yellow bug bulbs
during the nesting season.
Drapery should be closed if inte-
rior lights are a problem.
+ Horseback riding, camp-
fires and vehicle traffic are pro-
hibited on turtle beaches.
+ Placement of sand (renour-
ishment) on beaches requires a
permit from the state Department
of Environmental Protection and
possibly your local government.
Clear your nesting beach at
night. Remove anything such as
lawn chairs or boats that could
cover a potential nest site or be
an obstacle to hatchlings trying
to reach the water.
+ Don't allow your pets to
roam. They may discourage a
female from nesting, dig up a
nest or eat her hatchlings.
+ If you find it necessary to
rake your beach, hand raking is
encouraged. If the beach must be
cleaned mechanically, a DEP
permit is required.
If you find turtle tracks on
your beach, don't disturb them.
Volunteers walk many of our
nesting beaches for the local
Save-A-Turtle group and tracks
provide important information
about nests and hatching events.

tions about the turtle protection
ordinance, call Monroe County
or your city government. If you

Educator nominations
are due on Friday

The Monroe County
Environmental Education
Advisory Council has opened
nominations for its sixth annual
Environmental Education
Teacher Award for Keys teach-
ers.
The award was established to
identify teachers who are envi-
ronmental educators and/or use
the environment as an integral
part of their teaching. One
teacher each from grades
kindergarten through five and
six through 12 will be selected.
Anyone can submit nomina-
tions, which must include the
name of the teacher and his or
her school, grade taught and a


stance at the conference was frus-
trating.
"Most countries are on a much
more agreeable platform than the
U.S. right now. We're the richest
country and the least willing to
take the steps toward climate
change," Greenman said.
She said the U.S. was
"obstructionist in everything it
proposed," as evidenced by it
winning the "Fossil of the
Conference" award, a dubious
distinction given to the least pro-
ductive country.
Greenman is set to graduate
next year and said she plans to
delve into her work before pursu-
ing a master's degree or Ph.D.;
she hasn't decided yet. Whatever
she does, Harrison said she has
no doubt she'll do it well.
"I leave it all in her hands,"
she said. "She'll do great."

Bed races highlight the weekend


They're among
final events
in Conch Days
The celebration of the Keys'
secession from the U.S.
winds down as the Conch
Republic Independence
Celebration's final events are
this weekend.
As most know, the birth of
the island republic, whose motto
is "We Seceded Where Others
Failed," was prompted by a 1982
U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint
set up at the head of the Keys so
agents could search cars for
drugs and illegal aliens. It virtu-
ally halted traffic on the only
road into and out of the Keys, .
angering residents and threaten-
ing the fledgling tourism indus-
try.
Realizing the Keys were
being treated as a foreign coun-
try, local officials protested by
staging the secession. After pro-
claiming the Conch Republic,
they declared war on the United
States, pelted federal agents with
stale Cuban bread, surrendered

Council's Young finds her 'dream job'


New director's
goal is to keep
momentum going
Liz Young is six weeks into
directing the Florida Keys
Council of the Arts. She
looks at ease in the job even
while acknowledging the formi-
dable challenge it presents.
"She's a quick study," staffer
Reen Stanhouse says.
Young brings a strong back-
ground in visual and performing
arts combined with decades of
experience with the arts and Key
West nonprofits.
The Chicago native earned a
bachelor's in art history and the-
ater from Wheaton (Mass.)
College before heading to
Manhattan as a casting director
for film, television and theater.
Her 21 years in Key West
have been about family, with her
husband Gary and two beautiful
daughters, but also about a lively
connection to the community.
She was business manager for
Island Wellness for 15 years
before joining the Alan S. Maltz
photography gallery in 2002,
helping him recently complete
and promote his award-winning
coffee-table book,
"Florida...Beyond the Blue
Horizon."
In addition, she is president of
the board of directors of the <
Montessori Elementary Charter
School and a board member of
Congregation B'nai Zion.
Young was named director of
the Arts Council following the
resignation of David Wharton,
who served as director for just
four months before moving out
due to housing costs and health
issues. In between, staffer
Andrea Comstock served as
interim director.
Wharton had replaced
Monica Haskell, who served in
the post for 10 years before
deciding to change course.
Young plans to continue the
momentum of the Arts Council,
clarifying its position in the arts
realm and supporting-its
fundraising and networking
potential, as well as promoting
the Keys culture and arts as a
driving force in the community.
"Our new slogan," she says,
pointing to the back cover of
Keys Arts, the revitalized publi-
cation previously called Who -
What Where, "is 'Keys Arts: We


-spo sponsor.
We pro-
mote, We
Connect.
We give.'
The
council
acts as a
conduit,
finding and
funneling
funding
into the
Judi Bradford county and
distributing
directly to artists and arts organi-
zations. It also establishes rela-
tionships with governmental
bodies and other groups that
benefit the arts and culture of the
Florida Keys.
"It has a leadership role in the
arts," Young says, "and is state-
mandated."
"This is my dream job," she
says, citing her managerial
multi-tasking skills. "I enjoy
meeting people and supporting
something I am passionate
about."

'Mavis'
"Mavis and the Three
Bears," a campy musical at the
Red Barn Theatre, entertains.
It's got soaring vocals, cartoon-
like dance steps (including gratu-
itous tap dancing), a heroine, a
villain, funny costumes, makeup
and sets.
Unlike the other popular
shows of this ilk ("Rocky
Horror," "Urinetown" and
"Reefer Madness" come to
mind), this one, directed by Joy
Hawkins, pulls off a night of
laughs and delight with a feel-
good tone. The darks in this

palette are glancing. Amusing
flourishes abound.
The characters in this adult
take on "Goldilocks" are as
superb as they are unlikely.
Kristi Davis is a charming
Mavis, who brings my South
Carolina cousins right into focus;
and Bruce Moore, playing Mr.
Clairol, is as glitzy as it gets.
Moore's dancing could be a
show in itself.
Jeff Foxworthy would be
proud of the trailer-trash role
David Black perfects, with
everything embarrassing abouf
being human.
Audience members who
know the players in the Keys
will do some double takes on the
bear family. John Wells and
Kathleen Peace create the
whole bear culture in dialect and
dance. Young Teddy Bear,

.Opening night, styled by the
script's author, was catered by
Great Events as a Goldilocks

turing shrimp and grits an
item you won't find at many
gala events. The Michael Dixon
band played original music -
haunting, but with a dance beat
- inspiring some mighty cre-
ative movement.
Behind the scenes is a perfect
storm of talent. The script by
Blake Hunter, Keys resident
and L.A. sitcom writer ("WKRP
in Cincinnati," "The Tony
Randall Show" and more) is a
courageous leap into loony
humor, pulled off by a cast will-
ing to go right over the top. The
veil is parted between the cast
and audience regularly, creating


a direct engagement.
Music by local international
pianist Franko Richmond was
performed and directed by L.A.
music producer Bob Esty and
Key West's versatile Dave
Parker.
The Rick Worth set is an
expressive puzzle of artistic
skills. And the costume and
makeup by Carmen Rodriguez,
with bear suits by the Three-
legged Dog Studio (Rick Worth),
render the cast believable and
unbelievable at the same time.
The ending will trick you
with a moral-of-the-story you
won't expect and you'll discover
"nature's No. 1 indispensable
item."

down around all of them.
Chris Tittel will direct.
"Weathering the Storm" is
scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday.
"Can I Help You?," set for 8
p.m. May 8, is a short comedy
by Tammy Shanley that takes
audiences on a romp through
the sometimes-crazed world of
waiting tables. Sally, Joanie and
Jerrie banter about the ups and
downs of life while bouncing
around the restaurant serving
cantankerous customers, hus-
tling food from kitchen to table
and wiping down the cutlery.
Emily Haessler will direct.
"Mammy's Pantry," also
May 8, was inspired by
Mammy's Cupboard, a vintage


restaurant in rural Mississippi
built in the shape of a giant
Mammy. The full-length come-
dy tells the story of Charles, a
University of Miami student in
the midst of an identity crisis
and what he learns about identi-
ty on the road to Mammy's
Pantry.
The play takes a serious turn
when presidential candidates, a
white woman and a black man,
put a campaign spin ionwhat
they consider a politically
incorrect feature on the
American landscape that must
be torn down. Charles does his
best to rescue the landmark and
the identity of Mabel Frances,
the diner's owner and the epito-
me of Mammy herself.
Vanessa McCaffrey will *
direct.
The readings are free. For

Four

under

1 roof

Quartet unveils
'installations'
as total exhibit
quartet of artists has
taken over the main hall
at the Studios of Key
West.
Canadian conceptual artist
Helen Verbanz, recent instructor
Carlos Ferguson, Chicago-based
provocateur Mike Lash and
local artist Deborah Goldman
are showing four very disparate
bodies of work under the one
roof titled, appropriately, Four-
by-Four.
The display is expected to be
open by the end of next week
and remain on exhibit until a
May 15 closing reception.
Verbanz, who will be the
artist in residence at the Studios
in June, has traveled to the same
village on Lac Des Deux
Montagnes, near Montreal, every
February the past 10 years. Ice
fishing is an age-old tradition
there, and Verbanz's series of 11
large photographic images of the
winter environment, "Ice Prints,"
will be featured.
Tornadoes and floods, flying
machines, B-movies and subur-
bia, are the concerns of artist
Ferguson's "Suspended Worlds,"
also included in Four-by-Four.
His installation of seven suspend-
ed dioramas is constructed of
photographs, balsa-wood minia-
tures and model-train scenery.
Lash's paintings and text
panels-inspired by a young
neighbor's inquisitiveness about
the world and the inability of
adults to adequately respond
will be shown in Key West
before touring to Paris, London,
New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo
and Hong Kong.
Goldman rounds out the
quartet with her new installation
"Weft," which will create an
organic veil in the front left sec-
tion of the Armory and serve as
an extension of the artist's recent
work in her upstairs studio.
The Studios is at 600 White
St., Key West. Call 296-0458 or

Team shocks
Belen, then
falls to Pace
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


I Until this week, it had been
three years since Rex Weech
Field was inhabited by loud
overflowing crowds and charged
with optimism for a red-and-
gray-clad baseball team steeped
in boastful tradition.
Where else but at Key West
High School's ballpark is a con-
cession stand The 11-time
Cafe named for the number
of state championships the team
has won?
Wednesday night, in the most
anticipated game in three sea-
sons, the Conchs defeated Belen


Jesuit, 9-1, in the semifinals of
the District 16-4A tournament.
The victory erased the painful
memory of six consecutive loss-
es to Belen and ensured a spot in
the state playoffs for the first
time since 2005.
Now, it was Thursday night,
and an even bigger crowd had
gathered for the district title
game between the Conchs and
longtime rival Monsignor Pace,
possessor of its own glorious
baseball tradition.
It was the top of the third
inning, barely dusk, and Pace
was ahead, 1-0. Two out, no one
on, Frankie Ratcliff up.

average of .487 but had not hit a

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

To have a shot in the Class 3A
regional softball tournament,
Coral Shores' Lady Hurricanes
knew' they had to play flawless
defense. They did, said Paul
Grewe, co-coach with Mike
Young.
But Florida Christian's
defense may have been just a bit
better.


Coral Shores ended its turn-
around fast-pitch season Tuesday
with a 3-0. loss, to Florida
Christian's Lady Patriots.
"We played a good game,
especially on defense," Grewe
said. "We knew that was going be
a key to the game, but we just
didn't get enough hits."
Coral Shores managed only
two hits, singles by senior Tessie
Worden and sophomore Andrea
Cockerham, against the pitching
and defense of the District 15
champion Lady Patriots.

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It was playing well at the
right time of the year, but the
Marathon High School baseball
team's season ended Tuesday
with a District 16-2A tourna-
ment semifinal loss to
Westminster Christian School.
The Warriors defeated the
Dolphins 11-1 in five innings,
ending' their season after the
team rebounded nicely from an
0-10 start. It had won.four of its


last six games heading into the
Westminster game.
One of those wins came
against Keys rival Coral Shores
and another was the Dolphins'
first district tournament victory
in recent memory, a Monday
victory over Palmer Trinity
School.
"They could have just laid
down, but we beat Coral Shores,
which is huge for us in the coun-
ty rivalry," coach Luis Leal said,
referring to the Dolphins' slow
start. "I don't know when the
last time we had a win in the dis-
trict tournament was."

"We knew we needed to play
great defense at Florida Christian
because at this level, runs are at a
premium," Grewe said.
The Hurricanes finished with
a 15-6 record and won a spot in
the regional bracket as District 16
runners-up.
That nearly reversed last sea-
son's 4-10 record when a young
roster lost five games by a single
run.
"Coach Young and I were
confident that as the girls
matured, they would be able to
win those kinds of games,"
Grewe said. "That's what hap-
pened."
Coral Shores improved its
winning percent from by 429
points, to .714.
The Lady Canes graduate just
three seniors off the squad vet-
erans Ciara Sanchez at third,
Rozina Malzacher at second and
outfielder Worden.
"A lot of the credit this year
goes to our senior leaders,"
Grewe said. "They've been with
us for a long time, and we'll miss
them.. But we do have a pretty
good nucleus coming back."

MARATHON / From 39


Sophomore Thomas Ryan.
started Tuesday for the Dolphins,
just his second appearance this
year coming off a shoulder
injury. Leal said Ryan ran into a
hard-hitting Warriors team and
surrendered seven runs in just
2/3 of an inning.
"Some of the pitches Thomas
was throwing weren't even close
to being strikes, they were just
hitting him," Leal said.
After getting behind big early,
Leal said the Dolphins spent the
rest of it being overly aggressive
as opposed to chipping away at
the lead.
"When they went up 7-0 we
were pressing .and trying really.
hard to do too much. It made
things worse for us," he said.
Senior Sean O'Connor hit his
second home run in as many
days to knock in the Dolphins'
only run in the second inning,
while junior Nick Bertiaux dou-
bled. Marathon had just three
hits overall.
Leal said this will be a partic-
ularly rough season to have end,
as a group of seniors with the
program since his arrival five
years ago will graduate.
Marathon will lose O'Connor,
J.P. McCabe, Mike Kuck, Chris
Garrett, Daniel Perry, Jay
Hegland and George Hoffman.


Marathon started off strong
this season, at one point holding a
7-3 record, and notched the pro-
gram's first-ever defeat of county
rival Key West High School. But
the Dolphins struggled down the
stretch against a string of quality
son for opponents, including two tough
ol soft- March losses to their other Keys
with a rival, Coral Shores.
regional Marathon ended the season 8-9.
Dade Freshman Alli Heller started
the game for the Dolphins, and
3-1 lead did well in scattering seven hits
allowed and striking out three. Heller
ree runs allowed no hits in the fourth, fifth
nth and and sixth innings, and never more
hristian than two in any one inning.
trict 15- But coach Andrea Murphy
said the Dolphins struggled to
produce consistent offense in a
battle of evenly matched teams.
"We didn't really string
e together the hits like we needed.
We left six runners on base and
had seven hits," Murphy said.,
The Crusaders scored once in
the bottom of the second but
Marathon answered back in the
third.

game.
In the fifth inning, Marathon
scored two more runs to take a 3-
1 lead. Kuck singled and was
doubled home by freshman
Kelley Struyf.
After a single by senior Alexis
Culver,' Samantha Rodamer
drove Struyf home on a fielder's

Murphy said the Dolphins
started out the bottom of the sev-

have unsettled the team, but that
the Crusaders earned the victory.
Murphy said her first season
as the Dolphins' coach was a
good one.
"We had some ups and downs,
a winning streak and a losing
streak. Overall, we did a good
job," she said. "We beat Key
West for the first time, so that's a
good highlight."
Marathon will graduate three
seniors from this year's team:
Melanie Boyd, Alexis Culver and
Yari Alpizar.

ICS Eagles nearly upset Lions-


Champagnat
rallies, Eagles
close at 8-6
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Up 3-0 after the top of the
third, Island Christian's base-
ball Eagles could sense the
playoff upset within their reach
Tuesday.
"Our guys came out believ-
ing they would win," ICS
coach Tony Hammon said. "I
didn't get them ready, they got
themselves ready."


'The Eagles played perhaps
their best game of the season in
the District 16-A semifinal, but
a late rally by the higher-seed-
ed Champagnat Catholic Lions
ended the ICS season with an
8-3 decision.
The loss in Islamorada
capped the Eagle year with an
8-6 record.
"That wasn't a bad way to
go out at all," Hammon said.
"We're sad the season has to
end because we're hitting the
ball and playing well. This has
been a really good group to
work with."
Champagnat, seeded second


in the district behind defending
champion Brito Private, beat
the Eagles twice in the regular
season. -
But that was then, and the
ICS club showed Tuesday was
a whole new ball game.
The Lions pulled ahead, 4-3,
but the game was in doubt until
the bottom of the sixth, when
Champagnat rallied for four
runs. The Lions batted in the
bottom of the inning because of
higher seeding.
. Starting ICS pitcher Phillip
Izaguirre, a sophomore, opened
the game with a line drive sin-
gle up the middle. Two outs
later, Matthew Izaguirre sin-
gled him home.


Champagnat loaded the
bases with no outs in the bot-
tom of the second off two sin-
gles and a walk. But Phillip
Izaguirre fielded a bunt and got
the to catcher Jordan Izaguirre
for a force at home. A strikeout
and pop fly send the Lions
away scoreless.
"That was a huge inning
defensively," Hammon said.
Shortstop Tim Globus
cracked a deep triple to center
to start the Eagle third. RBI
singles by junior Aaron
Izaguirre and senior third base-
man Andy Hertel gave the
Eagles an unexpected 3-0 lead.
The Lions started hitting in
the third, with three singles, a
double steal and a sacrifice in a
two-run rally. "We were happy
to get out of that inning with
two runs" allowed, Hammon
said. "We knew Champagnat
was going to score some runs."
Champagnat took the lead in
the fourth, using three singles,
-a walk and sacrifice to score
two -more times.
The Eagle offense sputtered
in the fifth and sixth innings--
putting two runners aboard in


the fifth with no outs, and two
on with one out in the sixth.
Both times, they came away
scoreless.
A Lion runner reached in the
sixth, and was followed by a
four-hit, four-run inning that
left the Eagles too far behind.
"We made it close,"
Hammon said.
Island Christian had a strong
11-hit offense against the
Lions. Phillip Izaguirre,-
Matthew Izaguirre, Andy
Hertel and Jordan Izaguirre
each had two hits. Tom
Cavanagh had one hit.
Island Christian closed the
regular season April 18 with a
10-0 win over Florida Bible. .
Matt Izaguirre went 3-for-3
with three doubles and Aardn
Izaguirre was 2-for-3. with a
400-foot ground-rule double.
Hertel and Phillip Izaguirre
each had two hits.
Island Christian will lose
Matthew Izaguirre, Hertel anid
Nathan Overfield.
"We're still a young team
with a lot of potential coming
back," Hammon said.

pitchers starter P.J. Arencibia
(who had -pitched only six
innings all year), Drew Rivera
and Kevin Hernandez. The
Spartans also ran the bases
aggressively and took advantage
of four Conch errors.
"We gave away too much
stuff," coach Miguel Menendez
said. "It was our worst game in a
month and a half."
Key West (15-13) needed to
win to have a home regional -
game Tuesday. Now, the Conchs
will have to play at 4 p.m.
Tuesday at Archbishop
McCarthy in Fort Lauderdale.
Despite Thursday night's '
loss, the frenzied dismantling of
Belen was still fresh in memory
- the three-run homers by
Nolan Thomas and Raiko
Alfonso, and the gritty pitching ^
of Blayne Weller against a team
that had eliminated the Conchs
in the district tournament two
years in a row.
"To play as good as we did
against Belen and get into ihe
playoffs was the most important "
thing that happened this week,"-,
Menendez said.

Kyle Lepine was up next, and he
did the same thing for a 2-1 lead.
A celebration ensued at home
plate as delirious teammates
mobbed Lepine. "Key West!
Key West! Key West!" the fans
screamed, and, beyond the right-
field fence, fire trucks flashed
their lights in celebration.
Thoughts of another miracle
on Glynn Archer Drive circulat-
ed through the grandstands.
Pace's large contingent of fol-
lowers noisy since Oscar
Romero's homer in the second

But not for long. The relent-
less, white-uniformed Spartans
quickly reasserted their superi-
ority. As the "home" team
because they were the top seed,
they. scored three runs in the bot-
tom of third and went on to a 9-
2 victory. The Conchs managed
only one hit over the last four
innings:
