The 2008 session of the
Florida Legislature careens to its
end Friday, and a slew of bills are
in the final stages of approval,
including an affordable-housing
bill that's raised a lot of ire in the
Keys and elsewhere.

Amended language would give county
ultimate control if ordinance is passed


McPherson had language added
to the bill that would allow
Monroe County to levy an added
penny to the bed tax and use that
money for affordable housing.


The legislation now goes to Gov.
Charlie Crist for approval or
rejection.
The bill was amended
Monday to comply with a
request by the Monroe County
Commission, but the local lodg-


ing industry still opposes it, say-
ing it singles out one industry to
foot the bill for housing.
"It seems clear that the
[County Commission] has cho-

LaTorre faces prison


Former county
official guilty
in DUI crash
After deliberating eight hours
straight Monday night, a Key
West jury at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday
delivered a guilty verdict against
former Monroe County Social
Services Director Louis LaTorre
for driving drunk and causing a


near-fatal car wreck in April
2006.
LaTorre, 60, accompanied by
.friends and family in the late-
night vigil, appeared stricken by
the verdict. He was handcuffed
and taken to the Stock Island
Detention Center, where he will
remain without bond until his
sentencing hearing.
Monroe County Circuit Judge


Luis Garcia, who presided over
the weeklong trial, said he would
later announce a date for
LaTorre's sentencing. The maxi-
mum punishment for driving
under the influence-serious bodi-
ly injury is five years in prison
and a $5,000 fine.
"We haven't formulated a
strategy yet or heard how our
client would want us to proceed,"

Sewer bonds go to governor


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Florida Senate has
approved a bill that could bring
$200 million for Keys sewer
construction
According to Monroe County
lobbyist Robert Reyes, the
Senate approved a second read-
ing of a bill that includes lan-
guage to bond up to $50 million
a year over four years for waste-
water treatment in the county.
He says the bill should go
back to the House some time
today. From there, it will go to
Gov: Charlie Crist for considera-
tion of final approval.
Last week the proposal
cleared the last House committee
it needed for approval. Rep. Stan
Mayfield and Rep. Ron
Saunders, from Key West, co-
sponsored that bill.
County Commissioner Mario
Di Gennaro, the county's waste-
water liaison with Tallahassee,
said he's thrilled that the Senate
has matched the House's lan-
guage.
A July 2010 state deadline to
get the Key sewered is right
around the corner and is estimat-
ed to cost more than $500 mil-
lion when it's all done.


Even if the House and Senate
legislation get the signature from
Crist, there's no money ear-
marked in the Legislature's
$66.2 billion budget, which was
approved by both houses
Sunday.
"We're just trying to get our
nose under the tent," Saunders
said. "This year we're getting the
authorization to do it. Then next
year we'd have to ask for the $50
million to be allocated in the
budget."
The bill would allow the Keys
to be included in Everglades
restoration bonds, amending an
existing law so money in the
state's Save Our, Everglades
Trust Fund could be used to back
bonds for Keys sewers.
Newly hired County
Administrator Roman Gastesi
said that since the bonding is
essentially a loan, it may in fact
come in sooner than Saunders
predicted. Unlike a $100 million
authorized by Congress in 2000
and not yet allocated, state bond
money is a more streamlined
process, he says.
"With federal money, you
have to get it appropriated each
year," Gastesi said. "But the state


process, when they do these
bonds, there's just a bit of a lag
time."
"This bill essentially sets up a
mechanism," Reyes said.
Saunders, Gastesi and Di
Gennaro all say the state will
foot the bill for repaying the
bonds.
"The state will repay the
bond," Gastesi said, "but remem-
ber, it's all our taxes. Basically,
the state is stepping up because
we're an Area of State Critical
Concern."
It's not a stretch to include
Monroe County sewer money in
a fund used to restore the
Everglades, said Paul Johnson,
president of Reef Relief.
"We are at the southernmost
point of the Everglades
Restoration project," he said.
The Legislature's appropria-
tions bill, which is awaiting
Crist's signature, includes only
$50 million for actual Everglades
restoration. In fiscal 2007-08, the
state earmarked $200 million for
restoration. Lawmakers pointed
out that the state has spent more
than $2 billion for the project so
far and are turning an expectant
eye to Washington. Only about
$360 in federal funds has gone
toward the Everglades.


Tax bill goes to Crist


BED TAX / From 1

of the driving economy of the
Florida Keys," Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West President Jodi
Weinhofer wrote to the commis-
sion.
On April 16, the County
Commission sent a directive to
the Legislature saying it would
support the bill if it were amend-
ed so disbursement of the extra
penny would be determined by
the county.
At that meeting, Tourist
Development Council Marketing
Director Harold Wheeler pointed
out the bill, as then drafted,
might have ceded control of a
good chunk of the new tax t6
Key West, where hotels collect
more than half the bed taxes
raised in the Keys.
The bill would have distrib-
uted the new income an esti-
mated $4.5 million to the
regions of the Keys where it-


would be raised. Since Key West
raises the most bed tax, the city
would have say-so over much of
that money.
But Monday, Rep. Gary
Aubuchon added an amendment
that allows the County
Commission to pass an ordi-
nance changing that default dis-
tribution. That way, Wheeler
said, if the county wants the
money spent on affordable hous-
ing built outside Key West, it can
do so.
Tourists now pay 11.5 percent
in bed tax. That's distributed by
the TDC district where it's
raised. According to TDC
records, Key West receives
around 52 percent of the bed-tax
revenue, the Lower Keys around
6 percent, Marathon just under
15 percent, Islamorada about 13
percent and Key Largo 13 to 14
percent.
In the meantime, the state will
likely spend close to 23 percent
less on affordable housing in the
coming year, according to fig-


ures compiled by the Florida
Association of Counties.
The Legislature's appropria-
tions bill sets aside $303 million
for housing programs $87.8
million less than in the 2007-08
budget.
"It's devastating," Monroe
County affordable housing coor-
dinator Lisa Tennyson said. "It
hasn't been enough in previous
years, and funding is critical in
our efforts to develop affordable
housing."
One vital grant the Keys have
valued in the past, the
Community Workforce Housing
Innovation Pilot Program, or
CWHIP, completely disap-
peared. In 2007-08 the state pro-
-vided $62.4 million in CWWIP
grants statewide.
According to the Association
of Counties, the state budget also
raids the Sadowski housing fund
for some $337 million, pushing
that money into the general fund
where it could be used for things
other than affordable housing.

Jury takes 8 hours to convict


LaTORRE / From I

defense attorney Hal
Schuhmacher said. "We are
meeting with our client to devise
a strategy how we would like to
go forward."
About 2:45 a.m. April 15,
2006, LaTorre was driving
southbound in the northbound
lane of U.S. 1 at mile marker 8.
LaTorre's pickup struck
Nadezda Bowman's northbound
sport utility vehicle head-on,
blasting it into the air.
Bowman's vehicle came
down on its side. Rescue work-
ers had to cut her from the SUV
with the Jaws of Life.
Florida Highway Patrol Cpl.


Gary Dunick,
who respond-
ed to the
fled he feared
Bowman was
J dead.
-.1 LaTorre,
whose truck
remained
upright, was
helped out of the vehicle by wit-
nesses to the crash.
Both were taken to Lower
Keys Medical Center for treat-
ment. Bowman, 35, was later
that morning flown to Jackson
Memorial Hospital's Ryder
Trauma Center, where she lan-
guished in a coma for weeks
with injures including a lacerat-
ed spleen, which was surgically
removed, a ruptured bladder,
several bone fractures and severe
brain trauma.
Blood tests conducted by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement showed LaTorre's
blood-alcohol level was 0.101
and 0.102 in separate tests.
Independent hospital blood
analysis showed similar alcohol
levels.
Driving with blood-alcohol
levels of 0.08 and higher is ille-


gal in Florida.
Both prosecution and defense
made closing arguments
Monday. LaTorre's defense dis-
puted the reliability of the blood
tests and suggested physiologi-
cal and mental problems caused
LaTorre's driving blunder.
They reminded the jury of the
testimony of LaTorre's high-pro-
file friends including Key
West Mayor Morgan
McPherson, City Commissioner
Mark Rossi and City Manager
Jim Scholl who said they saw
LaTorre drinking beers between
6 p.m. and midnight before the
crash, but who also said they
never saw LaTorre impaired.
Manny Madruga prosecuted
the case for State Attorney Mark
Kohl. He endorsed the blood-
alcohol evidence, pointing out
the consistent results of the two
separate blood tests. He also said
a "long night of drinking" could
easily account for LaTorre's
blood-alcohol excess. He asked
the jury for "justice for Nadia
Bowman and justice for Louis
LaTorre."
Bowman was slightly over
the legal limit but apparently the
six-person jury felt that was not
a factor.


Gator struggles


GATOR AIR/ From 1

tracts it flights to Aztec Airlines
Inc. Paros said Monday Gator
Air had not flown into Marathon
since Friday, when it had one
flight.
"Their service has been for
the most part irregular as far as
them being on any particular
schedule. They've been close to
the times they published on their
Website, probably 30 to 45 min-
utes. However, they may be here
today and not arrive tomorrow,"
he said. "We're getting a number
of phone calls from customers
and. at this point all we can do is
refer them to Dave Brown."
Paros said Gator Air doesn't
have "any contract whatsoever
with the county" and that it flies
using a Part 135 certificate
reserved for charter or on-
demand services. Collins
Aviation, among other compa-
nies, operates this way at the air-
port.
Paros is frustrated at Gator
Air's unreliability.
"If you're going to make a go
at this, you need to be reliable,
because if you're not, that hurts
the situation for any future air-
lines that want to come in. It's
better to have no service than to
have one that's unreliable, but at
this point we have no grounds to
stop them from flying in here
because we have no agreement,"
he said.
Marathon hasn't had regular


commercial air service this
decade except for a short stint
with Delta.
Greg Meyer, Fort
Lauderdale/Hollywood
International Airport public.
information officer, said Gator
Air has never received permis-
sion to fly directly into its termi-
nals.
"They have requested to
operate out of here with two
flights a day to and from
Marathon and they're in the
process of getting their agree-
ment approved by. the aviation
director. So far, we have their
proof of insurance, but we need
their security deposit," he said.
Meyer said Gator Air's
deposit would be roughly
$12,000 based on the number of
flights, size of the aircraft and
number of passengers.
Thus far, Meyer said, Gator
Air has been flying to what are
know as fixed-base operators,
which cater to general aviation
pilots on leased property near
the airport. He also said Gator
Air has been flying to North
Perry Airport in Pembroke
Pines, which is in far western
Broward County.
Rick Warwick, who services
Gator Air flights when they
arrive at Key West International
Airport, said Brown sent a letter
noting suspension of flights
beginning April 14. He said the
carrier has not flown there since
that time.

Students claim unfairness in punishment


Waffle House
visit ends
Grad Bash trip
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Fourteen Marathon High
School students had their senior
trip to Orlando cut short when a
school administrator sent them
home alleging poor behavior.
But eight of the students, all
minorities, say they didn't do"
anything wrong and initially
felt their darker skin may have
played a role.
That led the students, along
with friends and family mem-
bers, to hold a demonstration
Monday in front of the school.
The group stood outside the
campus on Sombrero Beach
Road with signs claiming
Assistant Principal Liz Logan
was discriminatory in her deci-
sion to 'send the eight boys
home from the annual Grad
Bash at Universal Studios.
Logan, along with two other
adults, was chaperoning the 49
Marathon seniors who made the
trip.
Students arrived in Orlando
Friday and were scheduled to
take part in the Grad Bash the
following day.
The minority students claim
Logan witnessed them leaving
the Quality Inn & Suites in
Orlando around 2 a.m. to go to
the Waffle House restaurant
across the street.
"She saw us leaving; she
was right there watching us and
didn't say anything," Marathon
senior Greg Williams, one of
the eight students to go to the
restaurant, said. He said Logan


told the students when they
arrived back at the hotel they
would be in trouble.
"She said, 'You know you
guys aren't supposed to leave,'
and we said 'You didn't tell us
anything,'" Williams said,
adding the students were
informed they would be sent
home the following morning.
"I thought if she really cared
she would have been like,
'Don't go or you'll get in trou-
ble.' We would have all turned
around and went to bed and that
would have been the end of
that," said senior Bryan Marles,
who was with the group.
Williams and Marles said
alcohol and marijuana were
being used by other students,
and Williams' statement to the
school says the group "wanted
to get away from all of that for
awhile."
"The only crime we were
guilty of was trying to get away
from such a negative atmos-
phere and enjoy waffles,"
Williams wrote. The six sent
home besides the eight Waffle
House goers were involved in
serious infractions, school offi-
cials said.
Porsche Williams, Greg's
older sister, said she organized
the demonstration because she
felt the Waffle House punish-
ment was not justified when
compared with the offenses of
the other students sent home.
"I don't believe they should
have all been on the same bus
going home as if they commit-
ted the same crime," she said,
claiming other students who
had obviously been drinking
alcohol were allowed to stay.
"I believe everyone who did


wrong should have been sent
home," Porsche said.
Marathon Principal Harry
Russell said he met with the
students and their parents
Monday evening. He, said the
eight Waffle House students
would receive no further. pun-
ishment, but declined to discuss
details of the school's investi-
gation.
"The consequence was they
got sent home and missed Grad
Bash. We didn't want to double
or triple punish them," he said.
"Several students were caught
violating school rules and as a
result [Logan] on site made the
decision to send them home.
I'm disappointed at the events
that took place, but we have to
work through them."
Porsche said the students
and parents would be satisfied
with an apology from Logan,
who did not attend the meeting.


These are the demonstrators Monday in front of Marathon
High School. They say eight students were unfairly sent home
from Grad Bash just for going to Waffle House.

Housing purchase

was clearly vetted

Sometimes it's not what you know, but whom you know.
That became evident to most attending Monday's special
Monroe County Commission meeting.
Mayor Sonny McCoy called his colleagues together and
asked them to revisit their April vote to spend $2.4 million on
affordable housing in Key West.
Developer Ed Swift, warning the county was "throwing
money away," urged reconsideration, arguing the $2.4 million
could be better spent.
Key West attorney Tim Koenig noted the purchase of eight
homes in Bahama Village had already undergone extensive
public vetting, including approval by the Key West City
Commission, the Housing Authority and the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust. Oh, and the County Commission last
month.
Perhaps confusion over why the special meeting was con-
vened added to the perception of some hidden agendas?
This has happened more and more, as outlined in today's
Keynoter report (see "Commission retains 8 affordable units"
on Page 14).
There can be debate over new construction versus rehabbing
existing dwellings for affordable housing, but no one disputes
the crying need to protect affordable housing.
Trying to rescind this already-approved Land Authority
acquisition is not good public policy. The commission, coming
to its senses Monday after hearing both sides, unanimously
affirmed its earlier decision.

And the beat goes on

One of the longest-running code enforcement sagas in Monroe
County adds yet another chapter at Key Largo Ocean Resort.
The co-op, under court order to replace non-conforming trail-
ers and RVs with permanent mobile homes and modular
homes, heads goes back to court for another round.
Problems date back to 2004 -when the county threatened to
foreclose after finding more than 300 violations for illegal
units, insufficient setbacks and unpermitted structures.
The resort's board, led by long-time president Pedro Salva,
submitted a site plan in 2006 detailing how the property would
be brought into compliance. Now, it turns out the redevelop-
ment plan was altered before it was shown to the county.
Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia has scheduled a hearing in
early June to take up challenges by some Ocean Resort owners
who question the legitimacy of the board in representing their
interests.
If the past is any indication, looks like this one will continue
to drag its way through the legal process, while the code viola-
tions remain. What a mess.

Fire crews balance responsibilities with fuel savings


EDITOR:*
Local 4396 Professional Firefighters of
Marathon would like to address the Saturday
letter titled "Rescue crews are wasting fuel."
It is certainly understandable when a citizen
expresses his or her opinion regarding the fire
department's expenditures. However, we feel
it is important to address those issues so all
citizens are well informed and have a better
understanding of our day-to-day operations.
Being aware might just alleviate any con-
cerns, particularly those expressed in the let-
ter.
On occasion, 24-hour on-duty crews dine
at local restaurants. It is not uncommon that
between daily duties and a heavy call volume,
there just isn't enough time to prepare our
own meals. Therefore, it's difficult or near
impossible to brown-bag or eat all of our
meals at the station.
Delivery? Although that certainly sounds
appealing, pizza and Chinese are not very
healthy options for the profession that
requires the highest level of fitness to perform
tasks at the optimal level. Pickup by one per-
son reduces our already-limited personnel and
would require responding using an unautho-
rized vehicle ill equipped to respond to an
emergency quickly and safely. We will never
forget the life-threatening accident a volunteer
was in after responding in his personal vehi-
cle to an emergency in Layton. Accidents can
and certainly do occur in a city of any size.
Marathon Fire Rescue Chief Dale Beaver
had already addressed gas-consumption issues
by requiring that crews turn off their units
while parked for any reason other than an


emergency 911 call or making any unneces-
sary trips outside the station. It should also be
noted that EMS/fire crews are regularly
responsible for fire inspections, pre-fire plan-
ning and emergency medical or fire calls at
any place of business, not just for contributing
to the economy by occasionally dining at
Marathon's local eating establishments. In
fact, more oftentimes than not, most of us
grocery shop for our meals; we simply cannot
afford to eat out that often.
We are incredibly grateful that we have a
new fire station. We are fortunate we have our
own rooms so there is some privacy allowed
for a home where we spend a third of our
lives. While the kitchen is large, and allows
for the crews to have room to eat, there is
nothing exceptional or state of the art about
the appliances, but we don't require such lux-
uries, either.
We take pride in our profession of saving
lives and property because it is our passion.
You will often see us at community events
such as the Seven Mile Bridge.Run, the boat
races and the seafood festival, to name a few,
so that our response time is even quicker
should something unfortunate occur.
We enjoy being out in the public, showing
our faces and being a part of the community.
It is also very important to us that we do our
share to conserve our resources by being
"green" and are always striving for ways to
improve our practices, but not at the expense
of compromising safety and proficiency.

Not all residents want more tourism


EDITOR:
Marathon City Councilman Mike Cinque
was quoted recently in the Keynoter as saying
"Marathon is lacking attractions for tourists...."
Now, I must say that I like and respect Mike,
but the attitude he expresses in this quote is
not at all in tune with my concept of a future
Marathon.
What he seems to be saying is that we need
more local attractions to bring in more tourists,
which he presumes is a welcome idea. For
some, most particularly a portion of those who
make their living here, more tourists equals
more business, which for them is good. But
not all of us living in Marathon benefits from
tourism. In fact, we suffer from it in a variety
of ways.
But is not wanting more tourism selfish?
Perhaps in a way, yes it is. But you may also
ask by what right does one segment of our
community have permission to utilize our
commonly owned benefits of water, sun, sand
and natural beauty as sales tools for their per-
sonal and private benefits? What we have here
is a classic zero-sum problem. That is, we only
have so much pie (environment) to divide and
what one party (business) gets to consume the
other side (peace and quiet) must do without.
The obvious answer is that both sides


should share. The problem in finding a fair
division of assets arises because the two sides
are massively unequal in their bargaining
power. The Tourist Development Council has
literally millions of tax dollars for its promo-
tions whereas the other side has only a faint
cry of the few.

Actor Snipes gets his just desserts


EDITOR:
Hats off to the judge who gave Wesley
Snipes the full three years he was able to for
failing to file tax returns. Here is an exam-
ple of a man who was a recipient of all the
magic, dreams and rewards that America
has to offer. He made millions upon mil-
lions from the ticket and video sales of his
movies from the American public.
It's ironic that his movies in all probabil-
ity had their biggest fans from John Q.
Public the middles-class blue- or white-
collar worker who plays by the rules and
pays his or her taxes every year.
It's probably safe to say that the taxes
paid by Snipes' fans were much more
painful than any imposition financially that
would have affected Snipes if he played by


the rules. If this sce-
nario isn't disgusting
enough, Mr. Snipes
adds insult to injury at
his sentencing by stat-
ing he should get a
pass because he was
SWjust a naive artist who
got duped by bad guys.
SNIPES Give me a break.
Snipes' explanations
of his innocence are more of a fantasy than
his vampire-slaying heroics. Better bone up
on the karate, Wesley, you may be bunking
with some very bad dudes.

Money being wasted on damaging nature


EDITOR:
The recent slaughter of several Big Pine
Keys raccoons as part of the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service's marsh-rabbit project was
arbitrary and arrogant. These clever little
critters, which strayed into traps for feral
cats, we are told, are the most intelligent
land mammals in the Keys playful,
adaptable and mysterious.
You or I would be arrested for the collat-
eral damage caused by these expensive
pseudo-scientific projects conducted on an
almost weekly basis. The gorgeous
Australian pines at Fort Zachary Taylor
State Park in Key West, the palms on Bahia
Honda, the entire predator and carrion chain


on Grassy Key, the hammock on Big Pine
- all have been threatened. We live in
dread of the next hare-brained scheme.
Does anyone know the long-term system-
wide effects of these eradications?
The practice of wildlife roulette in the
Keys must be halted and investigated. The
broader science, the financing, the opportu-
nity costs and the political pork are not sub-
ject to sufficient scrutiny. These hundreds of
thousands would be better spent on projects
with indisputable value, such as the reten-
tion of the animal shelter on Big Pine or the
construction of wastewater treatment plants.

Thank school staff
EDITOR:
Every year, we celebrate Teacher and
Staff Appreciation week during the first full
week of May. As the chairwoman of the
Marathon High School Advisory Council, I
would like to take this chance to thank each
and every teacher, as well as all of our
school staff, for their daily dedication to our
future the students.
I encourage every parent, student and
community member to take a little time out
of their own busy schedules during the
week of May 5 to personally thank our
teachers and staff. Every one of them
deserves recognition for their tireless efforts
on behalf of our students. I invite everyone
to participate in the events of this week at
our school, especially our teacher luncheon
on May 7. The heart of our school is the
people that work there, so stop by and let
them know you care.

many of the new biofuels like ethanol

more toxic than gasoline and the main cul-

If people in the Keys would really like
to go green, they should first look under
their open, stilted homes for products that

Key politicians

have the moves


Some folks at work laugh
because one of my indulgences
is "Dancing with the Stars," the
ABC show that showcases the
footwork of the famous, once-
famous and not-so-famous.
I never watched it before this
season but do now only because
its star is arguably Miami
Dolphin defensive end Jason
Taylor. His top-flight dancing is
the best the sorry South Florida
sports landscape has had to
offer the past year save for the
surprising Marlins, who are in
first place in the
National League East.
But you know,
down here in the
Keys, we have some
dancing stars our-
selves who come not
from Hollywood or
the sports world, but
the local political and
government arena,
which isn't that
strange when you
think about it because Larry
that arena is more Keynot
often than not the
theater of the absurd.
Take Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson. The past
month, he's mastered the two-
step, stepping around the
Tourist Development Council,
County Commission, the entire
Keys tourism industry and state
Rep. Ron Saunders to get some
Central Florida legislators
we've never heard of to shuffle
a Keys bed-tax bill through the
House and Senate.
Well, maybe it's more the
hustle than the two-step.
Then we've got county com-
missioners Sonny McCoy,
Mario Di Gennaro and Dixie
Spehar, who are so in lockstep
with each other and any devel-
oper that comes before them
that they easily hold the line-
dancing crown.
This month, former Key
Colony Beach Mayor Clyde
Burnett showed great grace -
from not a small man as he
waltzed smoothly into the city-
manager job vacated by the res-'
I


ignation of Mike Puto with nary
a nod given to the other 67
applicants.
Former County Attorney Jim
Hendrick was set to do the jail-
house rock last year after being
convicted of four federal cor-
ruption charges but instead
tapped his way out of it to pro-
bation. That might have been
the fate of one of his co-con-
spirators, too, but former
County Commissioner Jack
London instead retired to that
great dance hall in the sky.
But the jailhouse
rock is still alive fol-
lowing the Monday '
conviction of former
county Social
Services Director
Louis LaTorre, who
faces five years in the
hokey-pokey for driv-
ing after partying and
the subsequent
injuries he caused.
OK, so none of
Kahn those folks can swing
er Editor quite like Jason
Taylor. Then again,
no matter how tough
he is on the football field -
and he is tough he'd likely
stand no chance in the rough-
and-tumble world of Keys poli-
tics.
And they've been getting
more rough-and-tumbler these
days. Just check out what's
spewing from some of the can-
didates for office in the fall
already. No need to say who
they are; you already know.
This year's elections could
easily see more than two dozen
people on the local ballot, from
County Commission to School
Board to Circuit Court to the
Marathon City Council.
The judicial candidate-quali-
fying period is under way and
ends Friday. The rest of the
local candidates' qualifying
period is the week of June 16.
The primary will be held on
Aug. 26; the general election is
Nov. 4.
Think we see dancing now?
The ball has ju'sf begun.

Taddeo runs through the Keys


Ros-Lehtinen
challenger
stumps locally
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Annette Taddeo, Democratic
challenger of incumbent U.S.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, took
her first serious swing through
the Keys Sunday and Monday,
kicking into high an aggressive
run for Congress.
Pine Crest resident Taddeo
filed to run in District 18 in


February but
this was her
first campaign
Ja visit to the
Keys.
"I'm inter-
ested in hear-
ing from the
voters," she
TADDEO told the
Keynoter,
"what they want from their rep-
resentative. I will be spending a
lot of time here."
Taddeo said she has her fin-
ger on the pulse of the region's
vulnerability to hurricanes, hav-
ing lived with her parents in an
RV parked in their driveway for
months after Hurricane
Andrew's eye passed over their
house in 1992.
She said the hardest part of
the ordeal, after living for


months without water and elec-
tricity, was dealing with the
insurance aftermath.
She said all of District 18,
which takes in the Keys and
part of Miami-Dade, relies
heavily on Citizens Property
Insurance Corp., the quasi-gov-
ernmental insurer of last resort.
"We need a program similar
to the National Flood Insurance
Program," she said. She criti-
cized Ros-Lehtinen for making
little progress toward that goal
in 18 years in office.
She also criticizes her oppo-
nent for treading a steady
Republican Party line.
"We in South Florida send a
lot of money up to
Washington," she said. "You're
elected by the people, not a
party. There will be times when
I vote with the interest of the
district even -if it goes against
the party."
Taddeo founded
LanguageSpeak, a translation
company, 15 years ago and said
her business experience is cru-
cial to understanding current
economic trends.
"The Legislature is cutting
funds everywhere," she said.

"South Florida has been pretty
hard hit. How can my opponent
continue to support failed 'poli-
cy when this country is headed
for recession?"
Though Ros-Lehtinen has
been in Congress for 18 years,
she has represented the Keys
only since the 2002 election. In
2000, the region was redistrict-
ed so that. the Keys were includ-
ed into what had been an all-
Miami-Dade County district.
Ros-Lehtinen is the longest-
serving member of the Florida
congressional delegation.


In first-quarter financial
reports, Taddeo shows more
than $320,000 in her campaign
coffers. Though it's below the
incumbent's $828,000, Taddeo
notes it's respectable for a new-
comer.
The five-day candidate qual-
ifying period begins June 16 for
all local candidates except those
running for judge. That qualify-
ing period is under way this
week and runs through Friday.
The primary is held on Aug.
26; the general election is

Bridge to Keys set to open


Work ongoing
on southbound
Stretch ramp
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Traffic will be flowing over
the new bridge linking the Keys
to the mainland before the end of
May, project managers say.
Engineers hope to have cars
moving across the new Jewfish
Creek Bridge by May 22, said
Patti Jones, spokeswoman for
the construction project. But
engineers are hesitant to set a
definite date because of unfore-
seen events such as rain that may
delay construction, Jones said.
Local business and communi-
ty leaders are planning a ribbon-
cutting for the bridge. If it's done
on the bridge itself, the event
wouldn't be open to the public,
Jones said, because some safety
features for pedestrians won't be
in place yet.
When the bridge opens, traf-
fic will travel in both directions
over what will eventually be the
northbound lane and shoulder.
Jones said work on the south-
bound ramp can't begin until
traffic stops over the current
bridge and the portion of road
that the new bridge will replace.
The bridge was designed to
accommodate traffic on the


shoulders.
Work on the southbound lane
is expected to be complete in
early fall, Jones said.
The new 1.4-mile bridge will
have one travel lane in each
direction with a median barrier
designed to prevent the type of
head-on collisions the 18-Mile


Engineers
hope to have
cars moving
across the
new Jewfish
Creek Bridge
by May 22.


Stretch is known for. Its 65-foot
clearance will extend over the
Intracoastal Waterway and Lake
Surprise.
The current bascule draw-
bridge, built in 1944, will be torn
down after both lanes of the new
bridge are open, Jones said.
Jones said to also expect the
first part of the 18-Mile Stretch
road-widening project, from the
end of Key Largo to mile mark-


er 112.5, to be done by May 16.
She said the next three miles of
road should be done by the end
of May.
"The engineers originally had
it scheduled for September, so
they're ahead of schedule,"
Jones said.
The next phase of the project
is widening the road from mile
marker 117 to Florida City. The
entire project is supposed to be
finished by 2012 and cost more
than $270 million.
Drivers may also notice that
the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority and state Department
of -Transportation have begun
hanging water pipes on the side
of the new bridge.
Aqueduct Authority spokes-
woman Colleen Tagle said
9,9110 feet of 36-inch, spiral-
wound pipe will run along the
new bridge to carry water to the
Keys from the mainland. The
new pipeline will replace the one
buried under the portion of the
road that the bridge will replace.
The new pipe will reconnect to
pipes underneath the road.
Tagle said the $7 million
project should be done by
October.


briefs


Sheriff's Office
details burglaries

A series of break-ins in
Marathon has been reported
throughout this month.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says there have been
eight break-ins reported to
homes or apartments; there were
also four motel rooms entered
under similar circumstances.
There are similarities that may
indicate the crimes are connect-
ed but there are also some differ-
ences: The suspect or suspects
entered during the night or early
morning through unlocked doors


and most of the time, only cash
and cellular phones were taken.
The crimes were reported
April 2 on 3rd Avenue gulf,
April 5 on 73rd Street, April 11
at the Sea Dell Motel, April 18
at homes on 5th Avenue ocean
and 4th Avenue ocean, April 21
at two 1st Avenue gulf homes
and April 26 at a 6th Avenue
gulf home.
Detectives say most if not all
of these cases could have been
prevented if the victims had
simply locked their doors; many
burglaries to homes and vehi-
cles are crimes of opportunity in
which suspects simply look for
an easy target.

drags on

County Circuit Court Judge
Luis Garcia to revisit his April
10 decision that the conservan-
cy had violated its lease with
landowner JPB Properties.
The order "overlooked or
misapprehended ... genuine
issues of material fact," Ede
wrote in the pleading.
Garcia on April 10 granted
JPB Properties a summary
judgment in dismissing a law-
suit filed by MMC, which
sought to force a sale of the
three-acre property under terms
in the lease.
The conservancy had no
grounds to sue since it appeared
MMC was in violation of the
lease, Garcia wrote.
In the new filing, the conser-
vancy contends that several
issues such as whether MMC
had power to attorney to renew
building permits that had lapsed
were not adequately
answered before the judge
ruled.
"This is a factual issue that
must be resolved by the jury,"
Ede wrote.
Failure to have that power of
attorney prevented the MMC
from pursuing development that
would have fulfilled lease com-
mitments, the group contends.
John Powers, head of JPB,
has said he never revoked the
MMC's power of attorney.
MMC failed to meet its obliga-
tions for other reasons, he said.
The conservancy also wants
to further argue whether work
at the site was considered an
unresolved code-enforcement
violation, one of the issues cited
by Garcia.
Conservancy volunteers
have been active in several
efforts to rehabilitate marine
mammals rescued from strand-
ings.

RV park redevelopment plans were altered


Administrative
judge to decide
on legitimacy
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The largest redevelopment
project in the Keys is in limbo
again because the plan that prop-
erty owners approved was altered
before it was shown to Monroe
County.
Circuit Court Judge Luis
Garcia ruled that a state adminis-
trative law judge must now
decide if the site plan for the rede-
velopment of Key Largo Ocean
Resort RV park was legitimately
approved by the county Planning
Commission.
If it was, the plan must go
back before shareholders of the
resort. If the judge rules the coun-
ty approval was not legitimate, a


new site plan must be drafted and
approved by the resort's share-
holders and the county.
Garcia's ruling came at a hear-
ing this month after the attorney
for the cooperative's board, Frank
Greenman, told Garcia the site
plan was changed some time
between when shareholders voted
on it and when it was brought
before the Planning Commission.
"Key Largo Ocean Resort
counsel acknowledged that the
site plan was altered slightly from
when it was approved by the
[cooperative's] board of directors
and the people of Key Largo
Ocean Resort," Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said.
Greenman did not return
phone calls seeking comment for
this report.
The legal battle between the
cooperative's board and its unit
owners is the culmination of


decades of noncompliance with
county code, and the unwilling-
ness of the county until recently
to enforce compliance.
Since the 1970s, residents
have built permanent structures


Residents say
the submitted
.plan was not
the one they
approved.


in the RV park even though its
zoning was for vehicles that were
not meant to remain year-round.
In 2004, the county threatened to
foreclose on the property after
investigators found more than
300 violations of the county's
flood-plain ordinance, as well as


code violations for illegal units,
insufficient setbacks and unper-
mitted structures.
To avoid foreclosure, the
cooperative was required to sub-
mit a site plan detailing how the
property would be brought into
compliance. The county agreed to
change the zoning to allow per-
manent mobile homes and modu-
lar houses.
The board of directors, led by
long-time President Pedro Salva,
says complying with county code
requires razing most of the more
than 250 units and replacing them
with modular homes.
Many of the shareholders, a
mix of part-time residents and
Cuban immigrants, insist all
that's needed is to remove unper-
mitted structures, including
Florida rooms, porches and
decks. Otherwise, some residents
say they cannot afford to keep
their shares of the property.
The redevelopment plan


approved by majority vote of the
shareholders in 2006 was sent to
the Planning Commission, which
approved it in July 2007. But many
residents say the submitted plan
was not the one they approved, and
they see Garcia's ruling as con-
firming their complaints that the
board is not representing the inter-
ests of the shareholders.
- "This shows we're not a
bunch of crazies who are out to
make trouble," unit owner Peggy
Olds said. "We absolutely have
the law on our side."
A hearing before Garcia to
determine the legitimacy of the
board of directors has been
scheduled for June.2, Shillinger
said. John Jabro, an attorney for
40 Key Largo Ocean Resort resi-
dents, said he is taking testimony
from shareholders for his argu-
ment that an unbiased receiver
should be appointed to oversee
any redevelopment plan between
the cooperative and the county.

State leads in attacks on homeless


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Washington, D.C.,-
National Coalition for the
Homeless has issued its annual
report on hate crimes, and Florida
holds the dubious distinction of
having more crimes against the
homeless than any other state
with 31 attacks, six of them fatal.
California was second in 2007
with 22 attacks.
The report was released
nationally Tuesday, along with a


Michael Stoops to enact legisla-
tion to better protect the nation's
most vulnerable citizens.
"Even though the trend of vio-
lence against homeless persons
has risen over the past decade,
there are steps that we can take to
put an end to this terrible trend,"
he said in the report's summary.
Those steps include creating
methods to help law enforcement
better understand homelessness.
. Key West has been listed in
past reports, but not this one,
which covers all crimes inflicted

nationally on the homeless during
2007.
"There's a disturbing amount
of violence directed to the home-
less," said Rev. Stephen
Braddock, executive director of
the Florida Keys Outreach
Coalition, an agency that pro-
vides services to the homeless.
"My feeling is one of the reasons
we don't see a lot of it in Key
West is the [Keys Overnight
Temporary Shelter]. It's not a
solution by any means, but it does
protect against homeless phobic
activity, especially at night
because they're not visible. It pre-
vents thrill seekers from attacking
them."
James Boyt, who is affiliated
with the Outreach Coalition,
knows all about senseless vio-
lence. In 2004, he was beaten to
near death while sleeping in
broad daylight at Mallory Square.
Though there is no official
hate crime for Monroe County
for 2007, the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office is actively inves-
tigating the March 31 beating
murder of Michael Stanier.
Stanier, who was known in
Key West as Gypsy, was a recog-
nized member of the city's home-
less population, peddling the
island on his bike with his com-
panion dog that he dressed in lit-
tle outfits to solicit donations
from tourists.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said the attack is


not being classified as a hate
. crime but Braddock said
"chances are he wouldn't have
been killed if he were not on the
streets and homeless."
The economic downturn does-
n't bode well for crimes against
the homeless, either, Braddock

A scheduled April 21 trial
date for accused phony-funeral
con man John Peffer came and
went like five others before it.
A long list of fraud charges
pending against Peffer, 40, has
been moved to the June trial
docket in Monroe County Circuit
Court.
The trial, and a May 8 date for
pretrial motions, could be
changed yet again, court
observers say.
Peffer was released from the
Monroe County Detention
Center in September after post-
ing bonds totaling about
$68,000, court records indicate.
Richard Wunsch, a Key West
attorney listed as representing
Peffer, did not return a call from

"As thing continue to go

the number of homeless," he said.
"When you live on the street, the
level of violence is increased. The
ultimate way to end hate crimes is
to end homelessness."


the Keynoter earlier this week.
Peffer was first scheduled for
trial in October 2007 but the case
has been moved to succeeding
court calendars since, bumped
each time.
Diane Blevin, one of the vic-
tims in the bizarre case, gave a
deposition to attorneys in March.
Delays in coming to trial
"have been aggravating," Blevin
said. "Especially when you con-
sider what this man did. It's
unconscionable."
Peffer faces multiple counts
of fraud stemming from funerals,
services and burials he arranged
in the Lower Keys in early 2006.
He received at least $22,000
from people who believed they
were dealing with a licensed
funeral home. But the defendant
lacks any of the state licenses
required to serve as a funeral
director, state officials say.
He also faces misdemeanor
counts of posing as a funeral
director and transporting a body
without a license.
While pocketing money from
the bereaved families, Peffer
took shortcuts with arrange-
ments, victims told investigators
with -the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
In at least two cases, he
reportedly transported bodies in
a white sport-utility vehicle
rather than a hearse. Peffer also
is charged with stealing the SUV.
Peffer had worked at the Big
Pine Key office of Dean Lopez
Funeral Home, a reputable busi-
ness in Key West.
After being laid off, Peffer
forwarded the branch office's
telephone number to himself,
according to law enforcement.
He then spoke with family mem-
bers who called the number to
arrange a service with Dean
Lopez.

Another foreclosure filed


Playa Crystal
is in jeopardy
of fading away
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com


Cortex, a resort developer
with projects dotting the Keys,
has defaulted on a $39 million
loan intended to finance the pur-
chase and renovation of the Playa
Crystal resort in Key Largo.
The loan's holder, Fifth Third
Bank, filed for foreclosure
against the resort's companies
Mandalay Resort, Cortex
Acquisition Group, Cortex
Development Group III; as well
as Everett Atwell, a principal of
Cortex; and the estate of Derek
Parker, who was a principal of the
company until his death last fall.
Fifth Third seeks $40.76 mil-
lion plus more than $27,000 for
each day since March 17 and
attorney fees and other fees.
"We would obviously like the
borrowing entity to succeed and
to make a successful project,"
said Gregory McCoskey, attorney


for the bank from Tampa law firm
Glenn Rasmussen Fogarty &
Hooker P.A. "But it's a matter of
public record [the loan]
remains unpaid."
Tim Koenig, a lawyer for
Cortex, was more hopeful about
the resort's prospects.
"Right now we're working it
out with the lender, and we
believe we'll be successful with
that," he said. "We do plan to still
develop it."
The foreclosure suit comes
after both sides agreed on an
extension after the loan matured
in early October without being
paid, according to the suit.
McCoskey said that the loan
remains unpaid is not related to
Parker's untimely death, only the
maturation date on the agree-
ment. Koenig agreed the transac-
tion was unrelated.
Parker's estate has filed a
motion to preclude shouldering a
share of the debt.
"It's a technical matter under
the probate code and state law and
doesn't speak to the issue of the
personal guarantee," he said. "Mr.


Parker personally guaranteed our
loan and the money is owed to us
even after his passing."
Playa Crystal, if developed at
mile marker 97.5, would become
a large upper-echelon resort,
according to plans made by
Cortex. The 92 one- and two-bed-
room condominium units were
advertised at upward of
$600,000. Before being pur-
chased by Cortex, the 13.3-acre
bayside beach parcel held 154
mobile homes as the American
Outdoors RV Resort.
Cortex Companies, including
Keys Caribbean, were founded in
part by former Key West natives
Parker and Everett. The compa-
ny, as well as its principals, now
operates out of the Tampa area
with some developments there.
Cortex owns Harbor House,
Kings Pointe Marina, Sailfish
Club and Conch Harbor Marina
in Key West; Fiesta Key KOA,
which is to become a private lux-
ury home community called
Seaglass; and Anglers Reef,
which is set to become a vaca-
tion-home village in Islamorada.
Koenig said those projects are
on track.

Lobster change slow in coming


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


On the heels of another below-
average lobster harvest, commer-
cial fishennen are working to
fend off further reductions in the
number of lobster traps.
New developments in such
basic tools as buoys and trap rope
could help, said Scott
Zimmerman, executive director
of the Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association.
"We've been busy working on
outreach and education efforts
both for the public and the fisher-
men, and on ways to keep this a
sustainable resource,"
Zimmerman said Tuesday.
Recent research indicates that
changing trap buoys from a ball
shape to a bullet shape may lower
the chances of a trap being
moved by wave action, he said.
So can thinner trap rope, made
possible by advances that keep
the rope strength while reducing
its size. .
"The more wind-resistant the
trap is, the more likely it will sit
on the bottom and not move


around," Zimmerman said.
Supporters of a plan to reduce
the number of traps cite damaged
caused by traps that drift into coral
or other sensitive ocean bottom.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission last
December postponed a decision
on trap reductions and gave the
industry a year to craft its own
proposal.
Commercial fishermen have
several hosted sessions with other
interested groups such as conser-
vationists, commercial lobster
divers and local recreational*
divers, Zimmerman said.
Staff with the FWC attended
the opening meeting but have not
been directly involved in the
process since, said John Hunt,
director .of the state Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute office
in Marathon.
In December, a large group of
recreational lobster divers from
Broward County traveled to the
FWC's Key Largo meeting to
argue that state law favors the
commercial .lobster fishery.
Attempts. to. et those divers


involved in the review have not
been answered, Zimmerman said.
"We are looking a lot of
options and alternatives to
address concerns we know are
out there," Zimmerman said.
Those include stepped-up
efforts to collect and recycle trap
rope and retrieve lost of
destroyed traps after the eight-
month season ends.
New efforts to keep traps off
the reef could be considered, he
said.
A' plan introduced 15 years
ago sharply reduced the number
of traps in the commercial fish-
ery, to the current legal limit of
490,000.
Hurricanes and poor harvests
caused a moratorium on planned
reductions, but in December,
state staff suggested resuming the
cuts. However, a primary benefit
of the reduction plan more
lobster caught in each remaining
trap has not materialized.
The lobster season that closed
March 31 generated about 3.6
million pounds in the commercial
harvest a far cry from the 5.5
million pounds .in the long-term
average season

Commission retains 8 affordable units


It reconsidered
$2.4M purchase
by the county
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Residents and some Monroe
County commissioners were
frustrated that a special meeting
was called Monday to second
guess a decision the commission
made April 16 to buy three
parcels in Key West for afford-
able housing.
Mayor Sonny McCoy called
the meeting, saying he had not


"I"lWhe be-


f ,, 0%K,-<


"done due diligence" on the pur-
chase by the county Land
Authority staff.
The commission, sitting as the
Land Authority, ended up unani-
mously ratifying the purchase of
the three units on Patterson
Street, three units on Third Street
and a duplex on Albury Street in
Bahama Village, all in Key West.
Key West developer Ed Swift
had lobbied for the reconsidera-
tion, arguing the. $2.4 million
expenditure was not the best use
of public money.
"It's throwing money away,"
Swift said, noting the county's
$2.8 million subsidy for the low-
income Roosevelt Gardens com-
plex in Key West in 1998 bought
96 affordable units while this
expenditure would buy just
eight.
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy said it's unreasonable to


compare subsidized new con-
struction with the preservation of
existing homes that will be lived
in throughout the process. She
said it would take two to three
years to build new housing. In
the meantime, the families living
in the units under consideration
will be able to continue living
there.
That's one of the reasons the
sellers of each of the parcels said
they agreed to sell for less than
market rate.
"Upon your approval, eight
families will have affordable
rentals in their pockets forever,"
said Ron Heck, who is selling the
Patterson Street property. "It's
important we get affordable
places .that are downtown and in
Key West."
"Today's issue is one of fair-
ness and trust in the process,"
said attorney Tim Koenig,
adding that the sale had already
undergone eight public hearings,


including approval by the Key
West City Commission.
The Housing Authority will
oversee two of the purchased
parcels while the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust will
oversee the Albury Street parcel.
Trust President Jim
Marquardt encouraged the com-
mission to stay with its original
vote.
"I consider this meeting very
odd, to be called by someone
who cannot fill his own hous-
ing," he said.
This is not the first time in
recent months behind-the-scenes
lobbying has led to the commis-
sion second-guessing itself.
Last month it rescinded a
stance it took on a proposed
penny increase in the tourist bed
tax. And in February, commis-
sioners reconvened from a break
only to bring back and reconsid-
er a discussion it had had on a
proposed gas tax.

When you plant any tree, Keys Energy Services (KEYS) asks that you consider the presence of power lines.
Trees touching power lines can disrupt service to the ent ire area. In fact, the number one
cause of power outrages in the Lower Keys is tree limbs intruding into electrical lines.


KEYS has an aggressive tree trimming program, but trees lose their beautiful shape after trimming.
The best idea is to prevent the need for trimming. So, we recommend that you plant trees
a significant distance from power lines and allow them to develop fully and beautifully.
When you purchase a tree, ask how tall it will be when mature.
A general rule to follow is:
If the mature tree is up to 20 feet, plant the tree 6-10 feet from power lines.
If the mature tree is 20-40 feet, plant the tree 8-14 feet from the power lines.
If the mature tree is 40 feet or taller, plant the tree 15-20 feet from power lines.

Mixed signals


in jobs market


By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The balance of power shifted
to employers during the past
year, according to the newest
wage and benefits survey by the
Key West. Chamber of
Commerce.
Employers participating in
the annual survey report a slight-
ly easier time hiring now, as
more applicants apply for each
job, especially in the private sec-
tor. For the first time in three
years, most sectors of the private
workforce described hiring
qualified employees as "moder-
ately difficult," an uptick from
last year's responses, which
were almost exclusively "diffi-
cult."
Overall turnover is down
slightly and the number of job
openings is also on the decline,
according to the 2008 report.
An economic downturn, with
its slightly higher unemploy-
ment rates, has led to an inexpli-
cable situation, said Jackie
Harder, president of the Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce.
"I'm hearing from more great
employees looking for jobs and
great employers looking for
exceptional employees," she
said, "which doesn't make much
sense."
For one industry in particular
the pennies are pinched harder.
Tom Wright, a Marathon-area
real estate attorney, has been
forced to tailor his staff to the
boom-and-bust cycle of his
business.
"I had made arrangements to


move into larger office quarters
in 2005. I1 had all .of the architec-
ture plans drawn up, but I had to
abandon those plans with the
market collapse," he said.
Wright, who has let go five of
his eight employees the past
three years, said he recently
advertised a part-time position
but he's not sure he can afford to
fill it.
Many professional employ-
ees in the Keys, like those at
Wright's office, hold second
jobs and are part-time in the pro-
fessional setting. Professional
offices also have the greatest
number of vacancies in the pri-
vate sector.
The Dolphin Research
Center on Grassy Key walks
employees through the tradeoffs
of island life, including the
expense, to avoid turnover, said
Rita Irwin, vice president for
marketing. Before doing so, the
center would lose employees
after a year or two who burned
out working two or three jobs,
she said.
When private business is
tough, government jobs can be
appealing, often offering more
benefits including healthcare,
tuition assistance and far less
turnover.
Keys Energy Services is "a
good company to work for;
we're not likely to skip town,"
said Julio Barroso, spokesman
for the Lower Keys electric util-
"1-1


tiy. When IIme ec
downturn, we are
secure."

COLORS OF A BROKEN HEART
By: Nico Shubeck

Red was the pain I felt each day.
Why watch the sun when it only fades away?
Blue were the tears I cried for you,
as the pink and purple had taken the afternoon.
White was the empty space I felt around me;
because you were missing.
I was just lost in my own blue...
Orange was the sunrise;
the last thing we shared together.
Green was the life you lived, and the grass we laid in.
Now alone with my red and blue,
I waited with the purple sky;
but you are never coming back.
Black was the green that left you;
your suffering, your death.
My red and blue are permanent now.
Your green eyes will be missed;
all the green you used to have.
I stare at our names in the tree;
carved in cyan.
Gold is our endless friendship.
My memories of you, are all the precious colors.

:And so they go northward
Away from the warnings,
Away from the developing

Of condos and bluster,
Away from the wildly

That seized their souls and

Away they go!
Inland to lower insurance
rates,
Inland to lower housing
costs,
Away from the water.
Leaving their souls behind
Bobbing gently like
iridescent jellyfish.


TOTAL CONTROL

I have a very close friend,
\\ho always with me
And will be at the end.

It's God I know it
He certainly exists,
Although I can't see Him
I feel His mist.

I feel comfort and love
Secure and complete,
While I'm awake or asleep
Until death do I keep.

He's the only One
V\\ho can possess m soul,
For 1 belong to Him
alone
He's in total control.

Disappeared one day.

But someday truth will

And the solution will be

Keys youth heading to China


Snell to join
Wyland for last
Whaling Wall
Reporter Staff

A Key Largo student was one
of two child artists nationwide
picked by sea-life painter Wyland
to receive his foundation's Youth
Ambassador for the Planet
Global Medal of Honor at the
Birch Aquarium in La Jolla,
Calif.
The two, the first to receive
the award, are invited to Beijing,
China, this summer to accompa-
ny Wyland as he paints a two-
mile series of canvasses titled
"Hands Across the Ocean," as a
pre-Olympic event with children
from around the world. The proj-
ect is tentatively scheduled for
July 7 through the 21.
Twelve-year-old Guy Snell
and Carly Grimes, an 11-year old
from Venice, were selected for
their "commitment to art and
conservation," according to a


Steve and Melanie Snell congratulate their son Guy along with
Wyland, Dr. Sylvia Earle and Mark Victor Hansen.


Wyland announcement. -
Wyland is known internation-
ally for his Whaling Wall murals,
including one on the wall of
Kmart in Marathon and one at the
historic seaport in Key West. He
also has a mural on a building at
mile marker 100.
Steve Creech, a Wyland
Foundation spokesman, said
Snell and Grimes are invited to
join Wyland in Beijing, and spon-
sors are being sought to help pay


for their trips.
Snell credited his success in
art to his mom Melanie's insis-
tence that he not watch too much
TV or play video games.
"My mom never allowed
much TV or electronic time, so
ever since kindergarten, I have
always read a lot and done art-
work," Snell said.
Snell said when he grows up,
he wants to go into oceanogra-
phy, marine biology or art.


Cannons now safe and sound


Fort staff,
group, company
combine efforts
A recent collaboration
between the Florida Division of
Recreation and Parks and the
Friends of Fort Zachary Taylor
in Key West has resulted in the
fort's cannons getting protection
from the elements.
Fort Taylor was built to
defend Key West Harbor.
Construction began in 1845 and
was completed in 1861. The fort,
on the National Register of
Historic Places, was on active-
duty status from 1861 to 1947.
Today, it's a state park at the end
of Southard Street.
Last summer the Friends
group contracted Lawrence
Campbell,. a cannon expert and
blacksmith from Key. Largo, to
construct replica carriages for
the nine artillery pieces that
were on the. ground and exposed
to the elements in various areas
of the fort. He delivered the car-
riages in December and the next
step was moving and placing the
cannons, ranging from 14,000 to
28,000 pounds, onto the car-


The cannons some weighing 28,000 pounds are moved
into place and now are safely out of the elements.


riages and into the casemates.
Park Ranger Joe Hayes,
Services Specialist Harry Smid
and Manager Mark Knapke
devised a plan to lift and trans-
port the cannons from their rest-
ing places into the casements.
The Friends contracted with
Anchor Towing from Ramrod


Key to accomplish this and, due
to the skills of owner Mark
Jester, the cannons were safely
placed on their carriages inside
the casemates.
The cannons are now out of
the elements, properly mounted
on their trunnion and less likely
to deteriorate as quickly.

Anglers have chance to be 'golden'


14th edition of
tarpon event
is May 18 to 21

and a bit of luck are the recipe
for winning when some of the
nation's top fly anglers set
their sights on the prestigious
grand champion's award at the
14th annual Golden Fly


Invitational Tarpon
Tournament. The tournament
is set for May 18 to 21 in

DVD educates


DVD / From 23

Map & Guide, a publication
distributed free at Keys tackle
shops, marine stores and marinas.
"Florida Bay poses many
challenges for the novice boater,"
park Superintendent Dan
Kimball said. "Every year park
rangers investigate 80 to 90 boat
groundings in the park, often
with significant damage to the
marine resources."
The park has created the DVD
as an information tool that will
help boaters inthe area enjoy the,
magnificence of Florida Bay


safely.
Florida Bay is made up of a
series of shallow basins separated
by seagrass-covered mud just
below the water's surface.
Animals and boaters pass from
basin to basin in skinny, winding
passes or channels through the
banks. Knowing how to read the
water and trim an engine are
essential to successful navigation
of the bay.
Any business that wants to
provide free copies of the DVD
to their customers can call 852-
0324. The public can request a
free DVD by calling the same
number.


The Sugarloaf Key Resort
KOA is to stage a barbecue
dinner and awards ceremony that
day beginning at 4 p.m.
Tournament entry fees are
$150 per angler in the open
division and $50 per angler in the
youth division. Admission to all
social events is included in the
entry fee.
Additional social passes can
be purchased for $20 per adult
and $15 per youngster age 15 and
under.

It's lines in for tarpon next 2 weekends


Tournaments
take advantage
of the bite
Can you believe that come
Thursday, it's already-May? What
a fast year.
It seems we were just talking
about sailfish, kingfish and mack-
erel coming into local waters.
Now, with the exception of the
sailfish, most of the others are on
their way out. This is when the
tarpon and dolphin fishing gets as
hot as the weather. And from
early indications, this year will
not be any different.
The evening bite has been real
good this week, according to
reports from anglers practicing
for upcoming tournaments.
The 42nd annual Marathon
International Tarpon Tournament
is Thursday through Saturday and
the 32nd annual Ladies Tarpon
Tournament is May 9 and 10. Both
are open to all interested anglers
(of course, the qualification for the
ladies' event is obvious).
Anglers in both events are
fishing for tarpon in the evenings
on either 12-or 30-pound test line
with higher points for the lighter
line.: Both are all-release on the
tarpon, with many prizes for
other species that happen to get
captured (you know, snapper,
grouper and boyfriends). There's
still time to enter the tournaments
so stop in and see me at the World
Class Angler, mile marker 50
bayside, if you would like infor-
mation on either.
The tournaments have gained
a reputation and a new motto:
"Don't just hear the rumors, be
one."
Aside from tarpon, the snap-
per run to the ocean looks like it
has just begun. Look for area
channels and passes to be full of
big mangrove snapper headed to
the reef for their annual spawn. If
you find a school at a bank or
channel, hit them quick; they may
not be there in a day or two.
They are on a mission to get to
the reef (if you only had one
chance a year, would you miss
it?). Live shrimp or pinfish will
get their attention, as they are put-
ting on the pounds on the way
out. In a few weeks, the reef will
be alive with them but for now,
you should be looking along their
path. Some of them are well over
5 pounds.
The offshore fishing has

'.. mo ving
;., into local
._ w aters.
Many of
Po \ the fish
have been
scattered
inside the
Dave Navarro G u I f
Stream,
which has averaged from 9 to 14
miles beyond the reef. Some nice
catches have been well into the
stream in areas from 18 to 25
miles from shore.
I'm also starting to hear of a
few large fish over 30 pounds
taken lately. Look for the numbers
to only improve for the next sever-
al weeks. High-speed lures have


been the ticket for covering
ground to find these scattered fish.
Wahoo have also been report-
ed in very good numbers, as well
as in size. Most have been taken
while trolling a diving plug or
other deep-running lure. This tra-
ditionally provides a much
greater wahoo bite than'lures or
baits working just on the surface.
The new Rapala Mag that
dives to 30-feet=plus and has the
in-line treble hooks that allow the
lure to be trolled at up to 12 knots
is the best for working it down,
along with your surface baits, and
not having to sacrifice any speed.
They will keep your entire spread
looking right.
The darker colors have been
the best although several really
big ones have been caught this
past week on bright ones. It just
goes to show that just when you
think you know it all, you get to
start over again.


SIGN OF THINGS TO COME: Chuck Ryan -caught this
40-pound dolphin while aboard Dave Burnett's boat, 'The
Defender," April 12 off Key Colony 'Beach. With sCmrminer
water temperatures come greater numbers of dolphin.


May also marks the normal
beginning of our rainy season and
for those of us on land, we know
it is needed. But when we go fish-
ing, an afternoon thunderstorm
can be something best avoided.
May and June are known for
cloud formations, with numerous
waterspouts and frequent light-
ning. Having some knowledge. of
when they may be forming as
well as where and how fast they
are going is valuable.
The summer is a fantastic time
to fish in the Keys but there are
these storms to deal with.
Being offshore in particular is
not a good place to be caught in
one of these storms, especially if
you are in a smaller boat. Using
the available tools to know what
is going on with the weather is
invaluable in the summer here.
Bayside of the islands is an area
that gets pounded most after-
noons if the storms that form over


the western Everglades venture
south.
Keeping an eye on the sky and
an ear to the weather radio is your
best bet to stay safe and comfort-
able.
We won't be having a free
fishing seminar this week due to
the overrun with the kick-off
evening of the Marathon
International Tarpon Tournament.

World Class Angler in Marathon
