State hikes registration fee for boats
to save 66 FWC law-enforcement positions


increase state boat-registration
fees by half.
That was one element of a
$66.2 billion budget sent to Gov.
Charlie Crist by legislators


Friday.
While legislators fought to
avoid raising taxes in a difficult
budget year, they sanctioned
increases in a variety of user fees.
Among those is the boat-
license fee that will affect owners


of the 28,235 vessels registered in
Monroe County in 2007.
Barbara Maddox, co-owner of
Captain Pip's Marina in
Marathon, was mentally calculat-
ing the added cost for the 20
boats in the marina rental fleet.
"It all adds up in a difficult
business environment," Maddox

Council


wants to


buy island

Boot Key
would become
an 'eco-preserve'
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
on Tuesday decided to just buy
Boot Key outright rather than
deal with fixing or replacing its
dilapidated bridge.
With a long-awaited appraisal
of the island's value in hand, the
council voted 5-0 to move for-
ward with the purchase, save for
a small that parcel was a dump
site, after discussing a series of
options presented'by city staff.
According to the appraisal by
Waronker & Rosen Inc., Boot
Key is worth a combined $3.4
million with bridge access and
$1.47 million without. The
bridge has been closed since last
year due to structural damage.
The council heard six options,
but eventually voted in favor of a
plan to buy it for the $$3.4 mil-
lion and turn it into an "eco-pre-
serve" with no bridge access.
The island would then be sub-
ject to potentially sizable cleanup

compromises

between state House and Senate
leaders brought some insurance
rate relief for Keys property own-
ers.


Changes to Citizens Property
Insurance Corp.'s windstorm
insurance program now headed
to Gov. Charlie Crist would:
* Freeze current rates for
another year (the rate freeze was
due to expire at the end of 2008).
* Allow Citizens to still sell
windstorm-only policies.
* Increase the cap for
Citizens coverage to $2 million


on personal residences (an
increase from the existing $1 mil-
lion cap)
"The language. was changed
so that Citizens will provide
wind-only policies, which is

A controversial addition to an
affordable-housing bill that
would levy a fifth penny tax on
hotel guests in the Keys to help
fund affordable housing died on
the Senate floor Friday.
A last-minute attempt in the
House, filed before noon, could-
n't garner enough votes in the
Senate to bring back the bill,
which had already been approved
by the Senate the day before.
Lodging industry representa-
tives all across Florida strongly
lobbied against the proposal.
Friday, as the Legislature formally
closed this year's tumultuous ses-
sion, they were celebrating in the
offices of the Florida Restaurant
and Lodging Association.
Richard Turner, general coun-
sel for the association, credited
state Sen. Larcenia Bullard, who
represents the Keys, for helping
kill the fifth-penny language in
the bill.
Turner said the lawmaker
worked closely with Sen. Rudy
Garcia, the Senate sponsor, to
remove bed-tax language that had
been added at the request of Key
West Mayor Morgan McPherson.
McPherson, a driving force


behind the idea of using bed taxes
to help fund affordable housing,
said Bullard originally supported
his initiative, but she apparently
changed her mind without telling
him.
Many housing advocates in
Key West supported the bill, as
state budget cuts present a dire
funding situation this year.
The Legislature's appropria-
tions bill sets aside $303 million
for housing programs - $87.8
million less than in the 2007-08
budget.
Carol Dover, president of the
statewide restaurant and lodging
trade group, said in a video state-
ment, "To begin to go into bed
taxes and to use them for items
like affordable housing and other
issues that we certainly have not
supported or adopted we believe
would be the beginning of the
[other] 66 counties looking to
adopt the same thing."
Saunders said- he supported
the intent of the bill but that all
parties should be brought to the
table to discuss it.
"I was in an awkward posi-
tion," he said. "I didn't support it
but I didn't oppose. It could set a
precedent. If it comes up in the


future, then we need to bring
everyone to the table ... especial-
ly in tough economic times."
McPherson stepped around
the County Commission, Tourist
Development Council and the
Keys lodging industry and went
to Central Florida legislators to
push his plan for the fifth penny.
"I think we need it," Key West
Housing Authority Director
Manuel Castillo said. "We need a
permanent funding source. If we
had done it 20 years ago, we
probably wouldn't be having the
conversation we're having right
now."
Keys hotel guests now pay an
11.5 percent bed tax, which is
distributed by the TDC for
tourism promotion, events and
the like.
If the bill had passed, Key
West could have seen as much as
$2.4 million in bed tax funds per
year given the current percent-
ages based on where in the Keys
the bed tax is collected. TDC
records show Key West collects
about 52 percent of the bed taxes
countywide, the Lower Keys
about 6 percent, Marathon nearly
15 percent, Islamorada about 13
percent and Key Largo 13 to 14
percent.

director of finance. "And that
increase was 50 cents."
The new budget for FWC law-
enforcement remains essentially
flat at $100 million, she said.
Without the boat-fee increase,
the 66 positions would have been
cut, Wilson said.
Florida has 1.027 million reg-
istered boats. The number of
boats registered in Monroe
County dropped 4 percent from
2006.
Legislators also approved reg-
ular hikes, beginning in 2013, in
boat-registration fees based on
the Consumer Price Index.

is about $5 billion below the cur-

City to buy island


BOOT KEY / From 1

costs, since the island was home
to at least one dumpsite in the
past.
Council members Marilyn
Tempest, Don Vasil and Mike
Cinque all initially supported
this option and were later joined
by Mayor Pete Worthington and
Councilman Chris Bull.
All five seemed determined
not to repair the bridge, as costs
upward of $10 million have been
floated to do so.
"One of the solutions was
there and it's the one I like the
best, which is we make the offer
and buy it outright if that is
doable. My own druthers would
be that the city own it so we
always control what happens
there," Tempest said, adding
she's in favor of removing the
bridge.
Vasil has been adamant to
spend no taxpayer dollars to
repair the bridge and reiterated
his position Tuesday. He also
voiced concerns about costly
environmental cleanup should
the city create an eco-preserve.
"If it's anything like what I
expect it would be, they'd end up
giving it away because the cost
would be monstrous," Vasil said.
Cinque suggested the city
enter into negotiations with
Barry Yampol, who owns 99 per-
cent (1,006.11 acres) of the pri-
vately owned land on the island
under three corporation names,
to purchase his land. Keys Radio
Group owner Joe Nascone owns
9.57 acres and Marathon
Wireless Communications Inc.
owns 1.68 acres.
"Maybe we could trade him
some developable land in
exchange ... for a huge chunk of
the land he has, which is pretty
much undevelopable," Cinque
said. "I do believe Marathon
needs some type of attraction;
fishing is unfortunately slowly
fading away."
Community Services Director
Susie Thomas said funds for the
project could potentially come
from Florida Communities Trust
or Florida Forever grants. Both
of those programs, she said,
would require matching city
funds.
According to the appraisal,
Boot Key is made up predomi-
nantly of wetlands, the vast
majority of which are zoned
Conservation-Native Area.


Nascone's parcel is designated
Mixed Use.
Bull said the option to pur-
chase the island "is optimal, but I
don't think it's realistic." Both he
and Worthington initially said
they preferred a plan to remove
the bridge and provide ferry
service to users of the island.
"That would be the most cost-
effective way to provide access
... and solve our problem," Bull
said.
"No matter what we do, we
need to look at providing some
type of reasonable service to the
island," Worthington said.
Nascone has said he would
sue the city, claiming a taking, if
it fails to repair the bridge. The
city originally withheld release
of the report so City Attorney
Jimmy Morales could review it
and determine the city's liability.
According to the report, only
Nascone's parcel would signifi-
cantly decline in value if there
were no bridge access.
Originally valued at $2.42 mil-
lion with bridge access, it would
be worth just $605,000 without
it.
Nascone did not attend
Tuesday's meeting or return calls
for comment.
Local Realtor Brian Schmitt
spoke on Yampol's behalf, say-
ing Yampol feels his property is
more valuable than estimated.

HAVE SOME CHICKEN: Assistant Key West City Manager
John Jones retired Wednesday after nearly 15 years of
service to the city in various jobs. Why the chicken leg? It's
his humorous homage to the city's wild chicken population;
he was tasked with getting a handle on it but never quite
accomplished it. He did, however, help social-service

bills.
She also said the final version
approved by both the House and
Senate also continues the ban on
the prior practice of insurers rais-
ing rates and charging customers
higher fees before getting rates
approved by the state Office of
Insurance Regulation.
This so-called use-and-file
provision has been pushed hard
by the insurance industry, which
has been resisting efforts by
Florida lawmakers to further con-
trol the industry.
In one of the most high-profile
recent dust-ups between regula-
tors and industry, state Insurance
Commissioner Kevin McCarty
ordered industry giant Allstate
Insurance Corp. to stop writing
new policies in Florida, accusing
the company of refusing to turn
over documents needed in a state
investigation of Allstate prac-
tices.
On April 20, when a
Tallahassee appeals court denied
Allstate's request for a new hear-
ing, it looked like the commis-
sioner's crackdown was going
too be enforced. That was before
a procedural error was discov-
ered and the court had to rescind
its order.
Friday, as the compromise


Citizens insurance package head-
ed to the governor, Repetto said
the real battle looms next year
over the issue of how Citizens
sets actuarially sound rates.
In earlier versions, a gradual
ramp-up was envisioned for
Citizens rates, she said, with law-
makers setting a 10 percent cap
on rate hikes each year for three
years.
That provision was removed
during negotiations between the
two legislative bodies, raising
some fears that rate hikes loom in
2010 and beyond.
Repetto said she remains opti-
mistic that as long as the risk
model used is transparent, areas
like the Keys can challenge rates
based on the record of losses and
damages paid.
."If building codes and past
history [of losses] are taken into
the computation, my personal
feeling is that other coastal coun-
ties would be paying more," she
said.
The FIRM director cited
Duval County (Jacksonville) as
the prime example where wind-
storm rates are as little as $3 per
$1,000 of coverage. Rates
charged Citizens customers in the
Keys are five times higher than
that "even though our claims are
the lowest in the state given the
same wind-velocity event."

No wonder these

guys were busted

You've got to hand it to the criminal mind.
Sometimes, they seem to be sleepwalking - and now we
know why.
A statewide sweep to track down marijuana farms found
plants hidden inside homes, in sheds, in bathrooms and spare
bedrooms.
Here in the Keys, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office report-
ed two arrests, both in the Upper Keys.
In one, police say they discovered a bedroom lab when the
suspect's wife led them through the house to her husband's
workshop.
Some workshop. The arrest report indicates cops found grow
lights, a filtration system, plant food and 118 grams of pot.
The suspect said he was only growing marijuana for his own
use. Yeah. He was charged with cultivation and possession.
In the other Keys arrest, the suspect answered his front door
when police knocked. He reportedly then led detectives to a
backyard shed, removing the combination lock.
Inside, police said they found 90 marijuana plants, an indoor
lighting system, wall insulation and other signs of a full-
fledged indoor farm.
Statewide, law enforcement indicates 152 "grow houses"
were found and police made 135 arrests, confiscating 9,249
plants.
Here's the kicker: The value of all that pot on the open mar-
ket - $41.6 million. Not a bad one-day haul for the cops.
And proof that staying up late at night tending plants in sheds
and back bedrooms can be detrimental to your health, not to
mention the fines and jail time penalties that await those con-
victed.

Drawers can remain droopy

In yet another sign that Floridians can breath a sigh of relief,
on Friday the Legislature closed up shop for the year - we
hope.
In the last-minute flurry of compromises and deals being cut,
the push to regulate droopy drawers wound up shelved - for
this go-round.
As reported by The Miami Herald, a state senator from
Orlando refused to accept a "stripped-down bill" drafted by a
House member from New Port Richey.
Rep. John Legg wanted dress-code authority vested in local
school district boards, not the Legislature.
We know some School Board members right here in the Keys
who are glad they dogged the bullet on that one.
Whew, imagine trying to explain a ban on droopy drawers as
your policy legacy.

There's no escaping it: We need tourism's dollars


EDITOR:
This is in response to a letter written by
David Spaulding in Wednesday's edition. He
states that increasing the tourism for the city of
Marathon is not a good thing. I wish to openly
disagree with him.
Tourism is by and large the ruling industry
for the city of Marathon as well as the entire
Florida Keys. Without tourism, there are no
other jobs. Without hotels, motels, condos, dive
shops, and charter captains for fishing and snor-
keling, the drop-off in employment here would
be substantial and would literally force thou-
sands of people to be out of work and make liv-
ing here a dream that would not be affordable.
It's already tough making a living here and try-
ing to stay.
Without the families that work in these
industries, there would be a large drop-off in the
work for the plumbers, electricians, grocers and


convenience stores. The doctors in the area
would lose a lot of their patients and make it
even harder to get the quality doctors and nurses
to stay in the Keys. There wouldn't be a large
demand for the schools, forcing our educators to
look elsewhere.
In short, every industry down here relies in
some way on the tourism dollars that we bring
in. It's why most of us transplanted northerners
came down here and can afford to contribute in
our community. While I don't enjoy waiting to
enter traffic during high tourist season, I do
enjoy cashing the paycheck that those same
tourists are paying for.
I welcome our tourists and hope that they
come back year after year to enjpy the things we
sometimes take for granted.

Local government is letting us down


EDITOR:
In collusion with willing accomplices, our
Monroe County Commission arid Planning
Commissions have ceased to protect their citi-
zens and the quality of their lives from the
avarice of corporate developers driven mad with
greed. Habitat and species destruction, with little
or no regard for the adverse environmental
impacts the residents are made to live with, has
become standard operating procedure.
What will happen when our quality of life
deteriorates to the point that our property hasn't
any value because there isn't enough clean water
left for our families to drink and bathe with on a
regular basis?
In fact, the sphere of destruction orchestrated
by these commissions is no longer solely thrust
externally. They have devolved into a state of
depraved indifference, where building permits
are literally given to corporate developers who
have increased their emphasis upon density
intensification to such a magnitude that their
"affordable" housing projects have morphed into
uninhabitable designs.
Northstar Resort Enterprises recently
received approval from our County and planning
commissions to amass 123 homes on a 7.8-acre
tract of land at mile marker 106 oceanside, at the
congested entry to the Florida Keys. This comes
down to approximately 15.5 homes per acre.
Scientists have accumulated a substantial
record of violent behavior occurring in human
beings when large numbers of people are crowd-

ed together and squeezed into a small location.
The stress induced by these unhealthy and dan-
gerous habitats will increase to the point where it
will either implode or decompress by overflow-
ing and flooding into the adjacent neighbor-
hoods.
The manner in which these aforementioned
housing projects are being constructed will not
only infringe upon the safety, health, well being
and happiness of someone unfortunate enough to
have to live there, but upon every resident in
Monroe County.
It is unconstitutional and therefore illegal for
any government to ever act in a manner that
harms the people. A government that infringes
upon its citizens' rights to have access to a
minuscule amount of happiness so that they may
establish a safe, healthy and uncontaminated
habitat in which to live and raise their families is
an illicit and illegitimate enterprise devoid of any
legal standing.

Lift travel restrictions to Cuba


EDITOR:
The embargo between U.S. and
Cuba has travel exceptions. U.S.
citizens are allowed to catch a
plane north of the Florida Keys in
Miami and fly right over the U.S.
on their way south to Havana,
Cuba.
Sounds a bit unfair to the
Conchs. Why not shorten the dis-
tance from the U.S. to Cuba and
depart from the Keys?
It is time to restore regular
ferry and air service from Key
West to Cuba. It is hypocritical
that Miami can have the trans-


portation monopoly in this neck
of the woods and not allow the
people of the Florida Keys the
right and freedom to travel south
to Cuba without having to first
travel north to Miami to get there.
What is good for the Miami
goose is good for the Florida
Keys gander.

Foundation steps up for Scouts


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Girl Scouts of
Tropical Florida, I want to thank
the Coldwell Banker Schmitt
Charitable Foundation for help-

dues for two special girls in the
Lower Keys area.
Its donation helped pay for
one girl to attend a special Girl
Scout trainer-for-the-day event at
the Miami Seaquarium as well as
participate in a training session
through Girl Scouts to learn how
to be a camp counselor. Both of
these events help young girls see


potential career choices and are
.something that will help in their
personal and potential future
work prospects.
It is nice to know that there
are organizations that care to
help our children. I know so
many families that could use
assistance but do not know where
to turn. I want to thank the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt

Day-care center is growing


EDITOR:
Following the aftermath of
Hurricane Wilma, those of us who
volunteer for the Grace Jones Day
Care Center worried about being
able to continue serving the
approximate 40 children who
depended on the center for pre-
school education and day care.
Today, thanks to many volun-
teer efforts from community mem-
bers, we now serve 75 children. A
recent grant of $9,000 from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office


Fine and Forfeiture Fund will.
assist us to ensure these needed
services continue and the children
who depend on our center are pre-
pared for their elementary school
education.
We are indebted to the Fine
and Forfeiture Fund for this gen-
erous gift enabling us to meet the
challenge of providing a bright
future for the children whom we
serve. It does take a village.

To be like Mike,


ya gotta love it


So Mr. Marathon is no longer city
manager.
For anyone who watched the classy
way that Mike Puto handled his leave-
taking, it's a lesson in the true meaning
of public servant.
As reported widely in this newspaper
and others, Puto chose to resign rather
than face more public carping from some
members of the Marathon City Council.
More importantly, he knew the rumor
mill was going about former Key Colony
Beach Mayor Clyde Burnett being heir
apparent even before the council went
through a charade of searching wide and
far for city manager candidates.
But unlike most other polit-
ical egos I know, Mike chose
the high ground and even
helped Burnett during the
awkward transition that took
place before Burnett was offi-
cially hired.
That meant Mike's replace-
ment got to sit in on meet-
ings, learn details of the many
issues facing the city, and
interact with city staff to help
calm any fears associated
with getting a new boss.
At Tuesday night's City
Council meeting, Mayor Pete Wayne
Worthington presented Mike Keynotel
with a plaque recognizing his
service to the city. There was
some gentle humor about giving Mike
yet another plaque - he holds the local
record for most honoraria in existence.
And truth be told, the plaque would
have had to be many times larger to cap-
ture all the many things Mike has done
for Marathon, long before there was
even a city and before he became city
manager.
Mike and his family are pioneers in
this'community. His grandfather, Phil
Sadowski, built the original 50 homes at
the east end of Key Vaca back when the
entire town numbered fewer than 2,000
people. The causeway to the city of Key
Colony Beach is named after Mike's
grandfather.
Mike's mother, Sylvia, and his latd
dad, John Puto, worked alongside the
Sadowskis and the Schmitts and other
1950s-era pioneers, including the
Batemans, Bratners, Cranes, Chapmans,
Cunninghams, Greenmans, Rackleys, the
Parrish family and others.
Wednesday evening, the community
gathered at Marathon High School for
the official dedication of the new, won-
derful campus with state-of-the art build-
ings and equipment. It was a first-class
showcase for the generation of students


who are this community's future.
It was appropriate and fitting that Mike
got to speak on behalf of Marathon High
alumni while he was still wearing the
title of city manager.
As a graduate of Marathon High and
later a faculty member there, Mike repre-
sented a generation of young people who
invested their lives by staying home and
building the town where they grew up.
So many later generations cannot
claim that same dedication. And so many
of our current city leaders are more
recent arrivals who don't have those
deep roots in the community that bind
people with the place they call home.
Mike has that and more. He
has a heart that's bigger than
his booming voice and that
ever-present smile.
When he says "You gotta
love it," he means it, from
deep inside.
S And you wonder why
throughout this column I refer
Sto him as Mike (when this
newspaper's accepted style is
last name only on second ref-
erence). That's because every-
one - and I mean everyone,
from Gov. Charlie Crist on
lar am down - knows him as Mike.
Publisher And you'll not meet many
.in your life who can make
that same claim.
So, Mike, you won't be missed -
because we all know you will continue
to make major contributions to the com-
munity, long after titles disappear and
the many plaques go into storage.



Speaking of legacies, there were others
being recognized and honored at the
Marathon High dedication who deserve
our community's thanks.
John Stiglitz, known to everyone as
Pops, was recognized for his years of
devotion to the children of Marathon.
He and his wife Carol, better known as
"Grandma" to a generation of MHS stu-
dents, were on stage with all the digni-
taries.
His speech was gruff and to the point,
just like Pops. And his message: "This
is your school; this is our school. Use it."
A brass plaque on the wall of the
Career and Technical Education building
is dedicated in his honor. Students study-
ing Web design, computing, health, com-
mercial art, culinary-arts, construction
and marine science will now be learning
at "Pop's Place."
How wonderful is that?

Mainland sewer outfalls to stop


Broward, Dade
and Palm Beach
under orders

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Voices from the Florida
Keys have helped convinced
state legislators to order a halt
to pumping mainland sewage
into the Atlantic Ocean.
The ban on pumping the
lightly treated sewage from
Miami-Dade, Broward and


Palm Beach counties will not
fully take effect for a decade,
but Reef Relief and other envi-
ronmental groups cheered the
decision of the Florida
Legislature.
"Coral reefs will be protect-
ed now from ocean outfalls and
more freshwater will be re-used
to help-relieve freshwater sup-
ply shortages," said DeeVon
Quirolo, executive director of
Reef Relief, based in Key West.
By 2019, the three southeast
Florida counties must upgrade
six water-treatment facilities


that now pump about 300 mil-
lion gallons of nitrogen- and
phosphorus-laden water one to
three miles offshore.
Mainland governments
protested the move, saying their
communities cannot support
the cost of treating and reusing
wastewater.
Key West previously Telied
on a similar ocean outfall pipe
but was ordered to cease using
it years ago. All of Monroe
County now is under state man-
date to improve wastewater
treatment by July 2010 to pre-
vent nearshore water damage.
Miami-Dade, Broward and
Palm Beach had used the ocean
outfalls for decades. But
increasing pressure from
marine conservationists -
along with a critical state water
shortage - moved the
Legislature to act in the just-
completed session.
Reef Relief, which success-
fully campaigned against the
Key West outfall, shared its
expertise with other members
of the new Florida Coastal and
Ocean Coalition.
The -mainland outfall also
drew criticism at the December


meeting of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission in Key Largo.
Lobster fishermen contend-
ed complaints about bottom
,damage caused by traps rang
hollow when compared to the
environmental degradation
from the dumped sewage.
"And they talk about traps
doing a little damage," trapper
Albert Pfleuger told the FWC.
Board members of the pow-
erful Conservation Commission
acknowledged the outfall is a
threat to nearshore waters and
should be addressed.
Since the Gulf Stream cur-
rent pushes most of the outfall
water north, direct effects on
the Keys coral reef and water
quality may be minimal, Reef
Relief President Paul Johnson
said.
"What is very significant to
the Keys is that every gallon of
fresh water that gets treated and
re-used is a gallon that won't be


Two arrested
as part of larger
state investigation

The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office joined law
enforcement statewide this
week to weed out marijuana
grow-houses in an operation
dubbed Operation D-Day.
The coordinated effort
involved 45 of 67 Florida
counties, as well as state and
federal law enforcement agen-
cies.
Wednesday, Keys detec-
tives arrested two Key Largo
men for cultivation of mari-
juana as part of the operation.
They first knocked on the
door at 921 Plantation Road at
11:30 a.m. Once inside, they
smelled marijuana and a
woman who lives there
opened a small wooden box
that had marijuana and para-
phernalia inside, Deputy
Becky Herrin said. She then
took them to the back yard
where her husband, Roger
Drouin, 56, was. He reported-


taken from the Biscayne
Aquifer," Johnson said. "It
helps protect the aquifer that
the Keys depends on for its
fresh water."
State Sen. Burt Saunders of
Naples, who led the charge to
force closing of the mainland
outfall, pointed to the state's
water shortage.
Southeast Florida now
reuses only 6 percent of its
wastewater for irrigation, while
the rest of Florida reuses 31
percent.
That unrecycled water is "a
valuable resource that right
now we're just dumping into
the ocean," he told the Herald.
A University of Florida
study indicates that Southeast
Florida mainland residents may
have to pay $20 in additional
fees monthly for water treat-
ment and reuse.
Costs to Monroe County res-
idents are considerably higher.


ly admitted he grows marijua-
na for his own use and turned
over five plants that were in
his bathroom, along with grow
lights, a filtration system,
plant food and 118 grams of
marijuana. He was charged
with .cultivation and posses-
sion of marijuana.
Then at 1:20 p.m., the
detectives went to 53 Tarpon
Basin Drive and spoke to
Ryan Steele, 24. He reportedly
led the detectives to a shed in
the back yard, removed a com-
bination lock and revealed an
indoor growing operation
where he reportedly had an
indoor lighting system, wall
insulation and other growing
equipment. There were 90
marijuana plants inside. Steele
was charged with cultivation
of marijuana.
Statewide, according to the
U.S. Attorney's Office in
Miami, law enforcement
found 152 grow houses, made
135 arrests and confiscated
9,249 marijuana plants valued
at an estimated $41.6 million.

2 die in separate reef trips


One was near
Elbow, other
at Grecian Rocks

Two people died on unrelat-

Largo within four days this
week.
Allen G. Kay, 47,of
Ringgold, Ga., was scuba div-

Wednesday.
Kay and his dive buddy sur-
faced and were returning to the
Silent World Dive Center boat
"when Kay began to have trou-
ble," said Becky Herrin, infor-
mation officer for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office. "He
was pulled on the boat where it
was discovered he was not
breathing."
Crew members performed
cardiopulmonary resuscitation


while the boat raced back to
shore. An ambulance met the
boat at Garden Cove Drive but
Kay was pronounced dead

upon arrival at Mariners
Hospital in Tavernier.
On Sunday, Patrisha Minor,
51, and a companion were
snorkeling off the Keys Diver
boat near Grecian Rocks.


Minor reportedly felt ill and
returned to the boat. There, she
became violent sick and fell
unconscious, witnesses told
Sheriff's Office deputies.
Rescue efforts were made
while the boat returned to the
Port Largo canal but Minor
was declared dead.
The deaths were the third
and fourth fatalities apparently
resulting from a dive or
snorkel trip in the Keys waters
so far in 2008.
A free-diver died March 14
off Marathon and a govern-
ment diver died March 17 after
an accident in the Dry
Tortugas.
No causes of death for the
latest two deaths were avail-

attacks caused exertion, or air
embolisms, are frequent trig-

Jones, Garcia automatically re-elected


Five others
vie to replace
retiring Taylor
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Qualifying for open judicial
seats in Monroe County Circuit
Court ended at noon Friday leav-
ing two incumbents on the bench
and five contenders to replace the
retiring Judge Sandra Taylor.


Group 1 Judge Mark Jones and
Group 3 Judge Luis Garcia will
each serve another six-year term
since neither raised an opponent.
"I feel very honored and privi-
leged to have served as a judge
here for almost 12 years," Jones
said. "I get a lot of job satisfaction
and hopefully, through my efforts
and those of the court system, I
have a positive impact on our
community and the lives of the
people that live here."


Garcia was unavailable for
comment.
That leaves voters deciding in
the August primary among the
candidates vying for the Group 4
seat being vacated by Taylor, who
was elected to the bench in 1986,
first as a County Court judge and
then in the Circuit Court.
The candidates for the Group 4
seat are Key Largo attorney
Richard Behr, Assistant Monroe
County State Attorney Manny
Madruga, Key West attorney Jiulio
Margalli, Key West attorney Tegan


Slaton and'Monroe County Court
Administrator Mary Vanden Brook.
Taylor is the chief judge and
handles most of the county's
Family Court caseload. However,
those duties don't necessarily go
with the seat. The judges select a
new chief judge each year and
caseloads are divvied up according
to a mutual decision by all the
judges.
Still, several candidates for the
nonpartisan seat have a strong his-
tory in family law.
Even a heated race is rather


stoic when it comes to judicial
campaigns. Because of the nature
of the office, and because of a
strict canon of ethics, candidates
tend to take the high road and talk
about their own strengths and
qualifications rather than sling
mud at their opponents.
Circuit Court judges earn
$145,080 annually.
The judicial election, and pri-
mary for all other local offices, is
Aug. 26. Candidate qualifying for
other offices runs from June 16 to
20. The general election is Nov. 4.

Burnett, city ink deal


New manager
is officially
on board
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
welcomed Clyde Bumett as its
new city manager, unanimously
and with little discussion, approv-
ing his contract at Tuesday's reg-
ular council meeting.
"My desire is to guide the staff
to provide the most user-friendly
services the city can offer. I'm
sure you'll give me the tools to
work with and we'll make the
city better down the road," he
told the council.
According to the contract
negotiated with City Attorney
Jimmy Morales, Burnett will earn
a starting salary of $90,000. If he
gets a positive evaluation within
180 days, his pay will jump to
$100,000.
The contract took effect
Thursday and runs through April
30, 2009, "unless terminated ear-
lier." The council has the option
to extend the term for two one-
year periods.
The council hired Burnett
April 8, deciding to forgo an
anticipated interview process'
after submitting its top-ranked
candidates among 68 applicants
to Morales.
Rather thafl meeting the top
four candidates, three of whom
the council said it was familiar
with, a motion was approved to
begin negotiations with Burnett
right away. He was the top-
ranked candidate, followed by

several items he would like

He also requested a feasibility

5 COP liquor license
for auction online

In January, Marine Bank of
the Florida Keys used the Internet
to auction more than 70,000 bot-
tles of repossessed name-brand
booze and wine from a failed Key
Largo supermarket and liquor
store.
Now the repossessed liquor
license of that store, Kraus'
Supermarket at mile marker 106,
is going up for bid online as well.
Minimum bid: $500,000.
Deposit required: $25,000. Bid


increments: $2,500.
As it did with the booze,
Marine is using the online site
www.bd4assets.com to sell
the so-called 5 COP license,
which allows the holder to sell all
kinds of liquor, not just beer and
wine, on premises and through
package sales.
"Trying to sell a liquor license
is definitely the banking chal-
lenge of my career," Marine
Chief Executive Officer Hunter
Padget said. "After considering
many options, selling the license
through an . Internet auction
seemed to be the answer."


decision to hire Burnett.
While welcoming Burnett, the
council also offered well wishes
and thanks to outgoing Manager
Mike Puto. It presented him with
a plaque, commemorating his
years of service to the city.
"You're a true hero the way
you've handled yourself through
this transition. It shows the
courage you have," Councilman-
Mike Cinque said.
Puto was hired as manager
Nov. 1,2004, and earned $110,113
per year when he resigned.

'Vandenberg' money appears on track


$1 million
in state funds
heads to Crist
Keynoter Staff


Buried in details of Florida
proposed $66 billion line-item
budget for 2008-09, the $1
million in state funds to help
sink the USS Hoyt Vandenberg
as an artificial reef off Key
West appears set.
Money for the project is
contained in the general
appropriations bill for the


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Gov. Charlie Crist has 15
days to approve the
Legislature's spending plan
once he receives the entire
budget package, which is
expected to be no sooner than
Monday.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson has said the $1
million in additional state
funding will help attract addi--
tional funds from Florida's
Office of Tourism, Trade and
Economic Development.

Supporters of the project to
sink the 520-foot former mili-
tary ship still need to raise
another $ Imillion, possibly
more, to close the funding
gap.
When first proposed, the
project was estimated to cost
$5.7 million. The latest esti-
mates put the price tag now at
$8.45 million - roughly 40
percent more than first expect-
ed.
The Vandenberg project is
being financed by the city of
Key West, Mpnroe County, the
county Tourist Development
Council, U.S. Maritime
Administration, FWC and
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.
Those entities earmarked
funds for the project but noth-
ing's been spent since the boat
isn't yet on the sea bottom.
Plans to sink the vessel by a
May 15 deadline - in
advance of hurricane season
- are on hold pending release
of funds to pay the shipyard
preparing the Vandenberg.
Last month, Colonna's
Shipyard Inc. in Norfolk, Va.,
requested a lien of $1.64 mil-


lion in unpaid repair and
cleaning bills. The city of Key
West holds title to the ship.

Big Pine man
challenging
Mathewson
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The first contested seat so far
for the Monroe County School
Board is in District 3.
Thursday, Big Pine Key resi-
dent Matt Cochran filed to run
against incumbent Duncan
Mathewson for the Lower Keys
seat. Cochran is a restaurant con-
sultant with hospitality experi-
ence in Key West.
He said Friday he needs more
time to develop his platform and
declined to comment further.
Mathewson, a Little Torch
Key resident and vice chairman
of the board, is finishing his first
four-year term. The educator and
maritime archeologist was elect-
ed 2004.
District 3 begins on Big
Coppitt Key at Emerald Drive
and runs east to Sombrero Beach
Road in Marathon. Board dis-
tricts are drawn by population.
Incumbent board member


Council, said the Vandenberg
project should get more time
to raise funds, moving the pos-
sible sinking to sometime in
December at the earliest.


Andy Griffiths has filed to run
again in District 2.
School Board members run
nonpartisan so their election is
during the Aug. 26 primary.

Cuts coming
A list of schools' staffing cuts
will be unveiled next week in
preparation for the May 13
School Board meeting.
The preliminary list will
include the names of teachers and
principals retained by the district.
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said he hopes the district can pro-
vide early-retirement packages to
tenured educators, reducing the
number of cuts made. The offers
will come after the first list is
made public, meaning some
teachers could be offered posi-
tions after learning that they
might not be retained.
,The district notified those
teachers April 30 but cannot
release the names until "a couple
of special circumstances" are
resolved, Acevedo said.
"For the most part, teachers
who are not coming back know
who they are now," he said.

to bond out of jail

Disgraced former Monroe
County Social Services Director

tion on a felony drunk-driving
charge, wants to be sprung.
At 9 a.m. May 13 in Circuit

uled to ask for LaTorre to be let
out on bond until sentencing.

Gator dies from eating toy


The Blue Hole's
Bacardi popular
with visitors
An alligator known as
Bacardi because of its tail tag
No. 151 was found dead
Tuesday in the quarry at the
Blue Hole, a popular nature site
in the National Key Deer
Refuge on Big Pine Key.
Refuge staff says a necropsy
revealed the alligator died from
eating a plastic 2-inch-by-3-inch
turtle toy, which became lodged
between the alligator's stomach
and intestines. Also found in
Bacardi's stomach was a plastic


toy soldier. .
The alligator's stomach was
full of natural food including a
slider turtle, but due to the
blockage caused by the toy,
there was no food in the intes-
tines and it died from a hyper-
secretion of acid in the stomach,
according to Dr. Doug Mader,
owner of the Marathon
Veterinary Hospital, who per-
formed the necropsy.
A resident reported the dead
alligator to the refuge. Staff and
volunteers pulled it from the
quarry where it was found float-
ing just below the observation
deck, and they noted a fresh

wound on its skull.
Due to the recent case in
which two men were convicted
of illegally killing another alli-
gator at the Blue Hole, refuge
staff suspected foul play. But the
necropsy determined it was just
a surface abrasion and the skull
was not damaged.
The alligator was 9 feet long
but weighed just 188 pounds,
indicating it wasn't processing
its food normally; the average
weight of similarly sized male
alligators is 250 pounds.
Based on an average growth
rate of one foot per year, the alli-
gator was estimated to be 8 or 9
years old.
Bacardi's death shows the
need for people to keep unneces-
sary objects at home and pack
out what you bring in when vis-
iting places like the Blue Hole.
"The untimely death of this
healthy adult alligator was need-
less and due to someone's care-
lessness," refuge Manager Anne
Morkill said.
Over the decades, organiza-
tions have documented sea "tur-
tles dying from ingesting plastic
bags they mistake for jellyfish,
Key deer ensnared on plastic
trash can lids with large holes in
the center and entangled on
improperly disposed rope,
seabirds caught in discarded
fishing lines and raccoons with
their heads trapped in glass jars.

It's official for MHS


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon High School cele-
brated the official opening of its
long-awaited $47 million cam-
pus Wednesday.
Dolphin faculty and students
held a schoolwide ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony during the day
and topped it off with another
complete with guest speakers,
tours and a spread prepared by
students in the school's Culinary
Arts program in the evening.
"I thought it was an absolute-
ly perfect night. The city of
Marathon and the community
can be very proud of this facility
and all that it will offer for many
years to come," Principal Harry
Russell said.
One person who is certainly
proud of the new school is Hans
"Pops" Stiglitz, who had the
Career and Technical Education
Building renamed "Pop's Place"
in his honor.
Stiglitz has long been a pro-
ponent of the school and was
given a standing ovation at the
ceremony. He told the audience
this was "our school" and spoke
proudly about the caliber of stu-
dents it produces.
"When I grow up I want to be
like Pops," joked schools Career
and Technical Education Co-


ordinator Mark Hooper. "The
man is just true blue, 100 per-
cent there for the kids and he'll
give you the shirt off his back
and the shoes off his feet."
"Pops was obviously very
touched with the presentation
and he's just an example of the
type of people we have here that
want Marathon High School to
be successful," Russell said.
Other speakers: School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, School Board member
John Dick, Monroe County
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro, Marathon Mayor Pete
Worthington and Mike Puto.
Russell also praised student pre-
senters Reggie Paros and Katie
Greenman.
The crowd was treated to a
PowerPoint presentation done
by Lynn D'Ascanio that chroni-
cled the school from its opening
in 1957 to the present day.
Afterward, the 400-plus in
attendance were treated to tours
of the campus and food stations in
the newly landscaped courtyard.
Bill Spottswood and a team
of First State Bank employees
were honored by Athletic
Director Teresa Konrath for con-
tributing $25,000 for a new
scoreboard.

Housing plan advances


Council OKs
latest step
for 104st Street
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
* Approved a resolution for
a conditional-use permit
requested by the city authoriz-
ing construction of 40 deed-
restricted affordable housing
units on 2.73-acres of city-
owned land on 104th Street.
The city awarded the con-
tract to Old Town Key West
Development, 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 work-
force houses on the property,
ranging in price from $209,000
to $292,000.
+ Approved a resolution
amending the Building
Department fee schedule for
changes to plan-review fees.
The city wants to charge in
15-minute increments for the
first hour and by the hour
thereafter. The idea is to charge
less for small jobs that do not
require further review.
"We charge $100 an hour
for plan review whether it
takes five minutes or an hour.
We want to do it by quarter,"
outgoing City Manager Mike
Puto said.
"It's going to be a big cost
savings for the citizens of
Marathon," Councilman Mike
Cinque said.
* An update on the progress
of the Florida Department of
Transportation Sombrero
Beach Road reconstruction,
which is expected to be com-
plete no later than May 11.
Workers sodded the sides of
the road and applied a final

Commission
had postponed
earlier request
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Tuesday's Key West City
Commission meeting will
reintroduce- a number of con-
tentious development projects,
including a market-rate com-
plex on Simonton Street that
commissioners earlier post-
poned over lack of an afford-
able housing component.
The 20-unit townhouse
complex would be built on a
gravel parking lot. It has
already faced opposition from
workforce housing advocates
who say property owner
Richard Jones should either
include affordable housing
units in his plans or contribute
to the city's affordable hous-
ing trust fund.
The City Commission post-
poned voting on the item


March 18. Commissioner
Mark Rossi was the only dis-
senting vote, saying he wanted
to vote down the plan that
evening.
The Community Housing
Committee has opposed the
project, saying that even
though the property owner has
the building permit allocations
on the property that allow him
to build, it's not redevelop-
ment as labeled by the city
Planning Department.
Currently, there is nothing
built on vacant property.
Any new development in
Key West must designate 30
percent of proposed units to
affordable housing, but that
same requirement hasn't yet
taken effect for redevelop-
ment.
The housing committee has
been pushing since August for
an ordinance that would
require anyone building more
than four units to construct 30
percent affordable units on


site or off site, or contribute
$200,000 per would-be unit to
the housing fund.
According to planner Owen
Trepanier, hired by the devel-
oper, the property would have
cost Jones less if a workforce
housing component were
required. Property purchased
for market rate development is
more expensive, he said.
Also on the commission's
agenda for Tuesday:
* The commission will
hear a development-agreement
request for the Spottswood
hotel and convention center
project at 3820 N. Roosevelt
Blvd.
* AIDS Help Inc. wants to
enter into a development with
the city for a 50-unit rest home
at Poinciana Housing. The
agreement would organize the
project into phases.
"It allows for a more cau-
tious approach for that kind of
project," City Planner Amy
Kimball-Murley said.
* Bill Grosscup's house
burned down nearly three
years ago, and he's run into
some bureaucratic difficulty
rebuilding it, he said.
"I lost everything I owned,
plus my animals," said
Grpsscup, who lives on a
houseboat for the time being.
"The state has done every-
thing it can to prevent me
from building."
Grosscup says he sued the
state in 2007.
City officials say the hesi-
tation stems from a conserva-
tion agreement at Grosscup's
property, 13 Hilton Haven
Drive. The home he wants to
build would sit on pilings over
the water.
* City Engineer Roland
Flowers will give a presenta-
tion to discuss which streets in
Bahama Village should be
open to traffic bound for the
Truman Waterfront property.
Petronia and Angela are possi-
bilities.
"We've worked out our
agreement with [the Truman
Annex Master Property
Owners Association} over
Southard Street; now it's time
for us to fulfill our obliga-
tion," Mayor Morgan
McPherson said.
The commission meets at
Old City Hall at 510 Greene
St. at 6 p.m.


Construction
on redevelopment
project delayed
By SAM NISSEN -
snissen@keynoter.com

The 450 hotel rooms and
convention center planned
Spottswood Hotels will face
its first round of scrutiny at
Tuesday's Key West City
Commission meeting.
The commission will con-
sider a technical matter
brought by the Planning
Department to either wrap the
project into one development
agreement or maintain sepa-
rate approvals for its plans,
conditional usage and vari-
ances, Planning Director Amy
Kimball-Murley said.
Tuesday's decision will set
the stage for considering the
massive project's future. It
was slated to be built within
the past year but Spottswood


recently announced a delay in
the construction into late this
year.
The timetable change will
need approval from the city no
matter the outcome of the
Tuesday meeting. Kimball-
Murley said she's recommend-
ing rolling the project into one
agreement, which would allow
the city to set development
phases such as when work-
force housing is completed in
relation to the rest of the con-
struction.
The Key West Resort and
Conference Center on North
Roosevelt Boulevard will
combine the Days Inn, Waffle
House, Holiday Inn, Comfort
Inn, Radisson and nearby
Conch Tour Train station into
one resort. The 17-acre site
will include retail space and a
theme restaurant seating 250,
according to plans submitted
last spring.

City embraces green strategy


2,000 recycle
bins is the first

step it takes
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


It was a banner day for the
environment Tuesday as the
Marathon City Council took sev-
eral actions intent on reducing its
energy consumption and involv-
ing the community in the effort.
Along with enacting recom-
mendations made in a compre-
hensive report by the city's
Green Team, an informal adviso-
ry panel, the council passed a
resolution encouraging residents
to take various steps to reduce
their personal energy consump-
tion and voted to purchase 2,000
14-gallon recycling bins to be
distributed citywide.
Green Team Chairman
Michael Welber outlined for the
council the group's findings and
offered numerous suggestions by
which the city can reduce its
impact on the environment. The
findings were compiled by
studying power use in fiscal year
2005-06 for both city buildings
and other city sites, automobile
use, employee commuting and
power consumption by street-
lights and signals.
"The primary goal is to get
[the city] to use less energy and
.. we recommended a whole
variety of different ways for
them to do that," Welber said.
"The bigger goal is to reduce


greenhouse gases so we can slow
down global warming."
The goal is to reduce energy
usage by the city, its employees
and structures, thereby reducing
energy consumption and costs.
Some of the Green Team's rec-
ommendations cost nothing,
while others will require modest
or major investment.
Welber also announced plans
to distribute a monthly green
newsletter and build a green Web
page on thecity's Web site.
"The newsletter will provide
tips for their employees for ways
to save energy. It'll start with
increasing the margins on their
pages and printing on both
sides," he said. "The green page
is going to be to let citizens


know what the city is doing."
The resolution urged resi-
dents to do five things to help
save the planet: Plant a tree in
your yard, take reusable bags to
the grocery store, change an
incandescent bulb to a new com-
pact fluorescent, turn up their
thermostats by two degrees and
recycle.
The council embraced the last
recommendation by allocating
$11,550 from its contingency
fund to purchase the recycling
bins.

National Nurses Week coincides with Florence Nightingale's birthday.
May 12. Many consider Nightingale the founder of modern nursing. The
history of Nurses Week began in 1953 when Dorothy Sutherland of the
U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare sent the proposal to
President Eisenhower. In 1974, President Nixon proclaimed a "National
Nurse Week." The celebration of National Hospital Week began in 1921
when a magazine editor suggested that more information about hospitals
might alleviate public fears about them.

* There are nearly 2.9 million registered nurses in the United States.
And, 2.4 million of them are actively employed.

* The American Nurses Association was founded in 1896

SIsabel Adams Hampton Robb was the first president of the American
Nurses Association

* There are over 240,400 advanced practice nurses in the United
States. Of these, approximately 144,200 are nurse practitioners,
69,000 are clinical nurse specialists, 14,600 are both nurse
practitioners and clinical nurse specialists, 13,700 are nurse
midwives, and 32,500 are nurse anesthetists.

SThe nation's nurses rankfirst for their honesty and integrity,with 82
percent of Americans rating them "high" or "very high," according
to a 2005 Gallup Poll.Nurses have consistently rated first every year
but one after being added to the list in 1999.

There are about 2.4 million nurses in the US

SBetween 2002 and 2012. It is expected that registered nurses will
experience the largest job growth of any occupation during this
time period.

College unveils marine plan


$4 million
building set
for the campus
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @ keynoter.com

Top administrators at,
Florida Keys Community
College journeyed through a
virtual tour of a nearly $4 mil-
lion marine propulsion facility,
traveling up three stories of a
new building where students
would have hands-on experi-
ence with four-stroke and
diesel boat engines.
The proposed 18,000-
square-foot building for the
Stock Island campus would
host maritime-related classes,
Vice Provost Gary Martin said.
Architect Andrew Hayes of
hayes/cummings presented his
firm's vision of the building at
Monday's college board meet-
ing with computer technology
that captivated viewers.
The college's current marine
propulsion building, Hayes
explained, wastes a significant
amount of energy and the
structure is below Federal
Emergency Management
Agency flood requirements
though Hayes admits there
aren't many places on campus
that aren't outside the flood


To our mother

Venita Garvin Valdez
Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary as Chief
Executive Officer of the Domestic Abuse Shelter, Inc. serving
victims of domestic violence and sexual assault throughout
Monroe County. Also, we wish you much success as you prepare
to take the helm as State President of the Florida Federation of
Business and Professional Women's Club, Inc. May 31, 2008.
We love you and are proud to have you as our mother.

zone.
But the new building would
be above flood zone, with
plans to build it over an exist-
ing parking lot on campus near
the water. Boats would be
stored on the ground level, and
the two floors would hold
classrooms.


The
proposed
18,000-
square-foot
building
for the
Stock Island
campus
would host
maritime-
related
classes


The parking lot's layout will
be redesigned, Hayes said, so
no parking spaces are lost as a
result.
Plans include sculptures and
a garden area. The college will
strive to get certification for
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design, or
LEED, by drafting design


methods with water conserva-
tion in mind. The designation
comes from the nonprofit U.S.
Green Building Council.
As for the current marine
building, it will be renovated
and used as a possible fitness
center or culinary arts facility.
Board member Carey
Goodman questioned why the
building isn't fit for marine
propulsion classes but is per-
fectly acceptable for the pro-
posed new uses.
College President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle said it still
has a "shelf life" and has
explained that alternative uses
wouldn't generate the same
high level of wear and tear as
marine propulsion.
"How realistic is it to think
that the building will be
rehabbed into anything more
energy efficient?" she asked.
The project has a budget of
$3.7 million from the Public
Education Capital Outlay Trust
Fund, a separate pool from the
college's operating budget. It's
expected to begin the design
phase in May, while actual
construction is expected
around January 2009 through
November 2009. Board mem-
bers described that timetable as
"very optimistic."
There are three competing
firms for the next phases of
design, including hayes/cum-
mings.
"It will be a crown jewel for
our campus," Landesberg-
Boyle said, "not only a recruit-
ing and retention measure, but
something the whole commu-
nity can benefit from."

Land Trust


faces scrutiny


Audit indicates
not all units
rented correctly
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A review of its housing stock
has revealed the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust of Key
West was renting units to tenants
who hadn't verified their income,
signed proper paperwork to qual-
ify for income-based affordable
housing or made too much
money to qualify for the units.
The 2007 information on 34
Bahama Village units rented out
by the nonprofit show that nine
of the tenants were in compliance
with income guidelines, 13 were
not and 12 units were vacant
pending renovations or other
delays.
The terms of the Land Trust's
grant agreement with the city
requires its tenants to pay less
than 30 percent of their income
for rent. Mayor Morgan
McPherson says the Land Trust
is charging its tenants too much,
and therefore paying more than
30 percent.
Norma Jean Sawyer, the Land
Trust's executive director, says
its unlikely tenants are paying
less than 30 percent of their
income for rent anywhere in Key
West.
"We make it so they can
afford to live there and we take a
loss in some of the units."
Sawyer said. 'We can substanti-
ate everything we're doing."
The units range in prices such
as $260 a month for a room at
309 Julia St. and $203.73 for a
two bedroom on Geraldine
Street. Sawyer says rent is decid-
ed on an individual basis.
Sawyer points out that the fig-
ures represented are from June
2007 and says all of the 12
vacant units but three have been
filled with low-income workers
and families that were previously
homeless.
The Key West Housing
Authority in January received a
letter from City Manager Jim
Scholl requesting it look into the
Land Trusts' housing stock to
ensure the organization is in
compliance with its renting regu-


lations. On April 23, Housing
Authority Director Manuel
Castillo wrote back detailing the
organization's status.
"There are obviously some
discrepancies we're going to
have to work out with BCCLT,"
Scholl said. "And we need to
develop a plan to clear them up."
"I looked at this as a prelimi-
nary thing in fairness to" the
Land Trust, Castillo said.
Castillo said the last time the
Housing Authority was asked to
review the Land Trust's opera-
tions was in 2002, under the
direction of then-City Manager
Julio. Avael. The Housing
Authority doesn't conduct the
audit, the Land Trust does. But
the Housing Authority carefully
reviews all expenses and certifi-
cations the group provides.
At the April 1 City
Commission meeting,
McPherson was the only no vote
for an item that reimbursed the
Land Trust $66,339 for expendi-
tures for housing renovations.
McPherson said then that the
Land Trust could've found a bet-
ter deal for the contractors it
hired and was behind on pay-
ments. He also said sewer and
garbage bill payments were three
months late.
Sawyer said the sewer bills
weren't paid because of an
underground leak outside the
Land Trust's 309 Julia St. unit
that was causing jacked-up
charges.
"We were negotiating a new
bill," Sawyer said. McPherson
"just wants to do anything to dis-
credit the BCCLT, and make us
look bad."
"They have to run a business
properly like everyone else,"
McPherson said.
Sawyer added that payments
sometimes depend on when they
city doesn't reimburse the Land
Trust.
"It's not that we don't want to
pay the bills," Sawyer said. "But
we are on a very tight budget.
When the city pays us our
money, we pay it back."
'City Finance Department fig-
ures show that $2.9 million in
city money has been transferred
to the Land Trust since
September 2001/.

This is one of the new Ford Escape hybrids that Five Sixes plans to deploy on Key West's streets.
They're much more energy-efficient than the current fleet of Crown Victorias because they're
powered by both gas and electricity.


Pink company goes green


Five sixes
buys hybrids
for its fleet
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Five Sixes Taxi in Key West
has a new slogan: "Think pink,
go green."
The cab company, known for
its bright pink vehicles, received
10 new Ford Escape hybrids this


past week. They'll hit the road in
six or seven weeks, fleet inspec-
tor Danny Brown said.
"These will be advantageous
due to the fact we have smaller
roads, tighter turns and, of
course, higher gas prices,"
Brown said. "They have better
handling and turning abilities."
Eventually, the pink Ford
Crown Victorias, ranging from
1992 models to 1998, will be
replaced by the sport utility vehi-


cles that offer more space for
passengers and emit fewer
greenhouse gases.
The hybrids get 34 miles per
gallonin the city and are adver-
tised for under $30,000 on the
Web. According to Five Sixes
owner Jan Doelman, it cost about
$270,000 for 10 of the vehicles.
According to Ford's Web site,
the Escape hybrid "actually uses
no fuel when stopped or driving
at low speeds because the vehicle

Schmitt buys Gary's site


There are no
firm plans yet
for building
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com


Realtor Brian Schmitt has
purchased the former Gary's Pub
building at 5271 Overseas
Highway in Marathon.
Schmitt, broker at Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Real Estate,
isn't ready to talk about specific
plans for the property other than
to say "the building will proba-
bly come down and something


new will go up."
Schmitt already owns the
property next to the 20,000-
square-foot lot where the Gary's
Pub building sits, and plans to
combine those parcels. Schmitt
estimates his combined proper-
ties there total more than 3 acres,
including more than 30,000
square feet of retail space.
"We're still working on the
details" of what he's proposing
for the site, he says.
Just a few months ago, it
appeared likely the building,
next to the Public plaza, would
become a Divers Direct store.


But after gutting the building,
including removing part of the
roof, Divers Direct walked away
in February.
At the time, Divers Direct
Chief Executive Officer Kevin
Senecal blamed cost overruns
and subsequent delays in permit-
ting for backing out of a lease-
to-own agreement with former
Gary's Pub & Billiards owner
Gary Wood and his mother, who
owned the building. Senecal said
his company had invested
$100,000 in the project.
Realtor Morgan Hill, with
Exit Realty, says she's pleased to

Commission vote that could

According to the city's licensing
official, Carolyn Walker, the

"Hopefully, we'll have 23 of

next year," Doelman said.
"They are going to slowly

new fleet makes Key West the
first city in Florida to use hybrid
taxis. New York and San
Francisco also have them, he
says.
"With the price of gas,"
Doelman said, "I think more
and more are going that way."
Doelman had the vehicles
painted in Fort Lauderdale since
he's unable to order pink Ford
Escapes. The paint job costs
roughly $900 each car.
Five Sixes has 20 to 40 pink
Crown Victoria sedans or vans
on the street at any given time,
driver Sandy Lee said. Drivers
can choose from one of the
company's five zones on the
island.
According to Doelman, the
hybrids won't be ready to drive
until June. They need to be fit
with cameras and-other equip-
ment. Drivers with the best
records of keeping a clean taxi
and avoiding accidents will get
first dibs at the new autos.
"Those who are deserving of
those cars will get those cars,"
Brown said.
Five Sixes can be reached at
296-6666 - hence the name.

Vet sues


over job loss


Cudjoe man:
Army obligation
got him fired
By PATRICK DANNER
pdanner@MiamiHerald.com

A former BellSouth repairman
claims his service in the U.S.
Army Reserve cost him his job.
"I was punished for putting
country before corporation," said
Mark Praught of Cudjoe Key.
Praught sued AT&T,
BellSouth's successor, for violat-
ing the Uniformed Services
Employment and Reemployment
Rights Act, which bars employ-
ers from discriminating against
military personnel.
The lawsuit is "without
merit," AT&T responded in an e-
mail. The company won an age-
discrimination complaint that
Praught, 59, filed with the Florida
Commission on Human
Relations in 2005. "We believe
we will prevail in this case as
well," AT&T said.
Disputes between military
personnel and their employers
sometimes spill into courts.
The day Praught sued AT&T,
April 17, the Justice Department
settled a class-action suit against
American Airlines over allega-
tions the company-didn't allow
353 pilots to accrue vacation time
and sick-leave benefits while on
military leave. American agreed
to pay almost $346,000 in vaca-
tion time and provide sick-leave
credits valued at $215,000.
The lawsuit Praught filed
against AT&T in Key West
describes Praught as a decorated


soldier - he was awarded the
Bronze Star and Purple Heart
while in combat in Cambodia in
1970 - who later served lengthy
stints with the Florida National
Guard and Army Reserve before
retiring in 2005.
From 1997 to 2005, Praught
said he was a noncommissioned
officer attached to the U.S.
Special Operations Command at
McDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
Praught said that because he
was assigned to an active-duty
unit, he had to be away more fre-
quently than the one weekend a
month and two weeks a year of
training required of reservists.
He estimated that in the five
years leading up to his termina-
tion, he spent the equivalent of
almost an entire year fulfilling
duties in the reserve.
BellSouth management,
Praught said, "couldn't adopt to
the new paradigm of reservists
working in active-duty units." He
attributed the change to the ter-
rorist bombing of the World
Trade Center in 1993.
Praught said his time in the
reserve negatively affected his
performance evaluations. The
absences, he said, also hurt his
supervisors' compensation
because they were required to
control costs.
BellSouth terminated Praught
in August 2001.
He said he was told he was
"not productive enough." He was
eight months away from reaching
his 25th year of service with the
company and qualifying for a
$300,000 lump-sum pension pay-
ment, he said.

"We'll see a good thing hap-
pen there, I'm sure," Hill says.
Originally listed at $2.7 mil-
lion, the property sold for $2.3
million.
Hill, who's had the listing
since December 2005, says she
has no doubt the sales price
reflected the condition of the
building. She says there are still


unresolved issues from the
failed Divers Direct deal.
Schmitt says he'll have to go
through the permitting process
with the city of Marathon to
redevelop the property. He
hopes to have "it pretty well-
determined by July or August"
and welcomes the feedback that
will come during the public
hearing process.

Redzuan Razak, joined by Laura Burke, says regular workouts at Key Largo's Jacobs Aquatic Center provide the weight-burning
exercise needed to keep himself mobile in his wheelchair. A veteran of Iraq with the U.S. Marines he was injured in a car accident.


Iraq vet turns tragedy on its head

Outlook is bright following debilitating auto crash


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer.
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Regular distance swims and
punishing weight workouts mean
freedom to Redzuan Razak.
"The less fit I get, the harder it
is to move around," said Razak,
25, a U.S Marine Corps veteran
of two Iraq tours.
"I want to do what I want to
do, and I like to be able to do
everything on my own."
Razak refuses to back down or
slow down despite using a wheel-
chair since a near-fatal car crash
in Nevada.
As an infantry rifleman, he
crossed the Kuwait border in the
initial 2003 invasion of Iraq, and
went into the breach at the first
battle of Fallujah in April 2004.
After returning from his sec-
ond tour, Razak suffered life-
changing injuries when his Jeep
rolled while returning to his
California base after leave.
"I could dodge bullets but I
couldn't dodge the highway," he
said, well aware of the grim irony.
Razak, quick to smile, is any-
thing but grim. Except about
missing the entry deadline for the
Seven Mile Bridge Run. "I'm

sorry about being late on that," he
said.
Crossing the bridge would
keep him in practice for racing
wheelchair triathlons and a half-
marathon competition in
California, he said. "They have
some steep hills in San Diego,"
he observed.
Since his accident, Razak has
become a certified diver and wants
to become a full instructor.
"Underwater, you don't have to
worry about steps," he pointed out.
He learned to snow ski in
Colorado and looks forward to
his first try at water skiing. "You
don't have push me into things,"
he laughed. "All you have to do is
nudge me."
Razak spent his first 16 years
in Malaysia, the son of a
Malaysian father and American
mother. "That's one reason I like
the Keys," said the new Key
Largo resident. "It reminds me of
Malaysia."
During an unsettled family life
while growing up, he moved to
Oregon at 16 and later graduated
from high school there. That
helped lead him to the Marines.

do since childhood," he said. "I
was looking for a place to belong.
People said the Marines are the
service most like a brotherhood.
It proved to be true; my Marine
buddies are like my brothers."
In the initial Iraqi Freedom
invasion in March 2003, his
Third Battalion, Fourth Marines
unit took the Basra airport and
was the first Marine unit into
Saddam's Baghdad.
Not that they knew it at the
time.
"We were 100 meters away
from Saddam's statue when they
pulled it down," Razak said of the
landmark incident televised live
across the globe. "We didn't
know it was a big deal....
Reporters were coming up to us
with microphones asking how we
felt to be in Baghdad. We weren't
even sure we were in Baghdad."
His unit returned to the U.S.
that spring after the declared "end
of hostilities."
"It was kind of strange being
back after that," he said.
"Everybody here was living their


lives like nothing's happened, but
over there, something did hap-
pen."
After leaves and five months
of training, the "Thundering
Third" battalion received new
orders for Iraq. "When we left, no
one expected to be going back,"
he said.
In April 2004, following the
ambush killing of four American
contractors, the Marines were
ordered into Fallujah, a hotbed of
the Sunni insurgency. It turned
into the most violent battle since
the invasion.
Razak's unit found itself hold-
ing a shattered building frequent-
ly under enemy fire.
"It was raining rockets and
mortar shells. We were sitting
ducks," he recalled. "We were
there for weeks. Everyone was
wondering why [the military]
didn't push us forward or take us
out."
After the second tour came the
auto crash. Knowing his unit was
due to be assigned a third tour,
Razak demanded of his doctor,
"How soon can I can hump a
pack? I wanted to get back with
the unit."

"That's the only real regret
about this whole thing," he says
now. "I was bummed out I could-
n't go back with my buddies."
Razak was not far from the
end of his enlistment period when
the crash occurred. "I was leaning
toward staying in," he said. "It's
something I was good at."
For the first two weeks of his
four-month hospital stay, he
essentially was immobilized.
Then followed more than six
months of rehabilitation.
"They taught me skills to get
around. Learning how to drive
wasn't hard. Anybody who's ever
played video games knows how
to use hand controls to brake."
In rehabilitation, he met girl-
friend Laura Burke, who was
teaching water skills as a college
intern. She knew the Keys from
university underwater-archaeolo-
gy expeditions. She accepted a
job at Quiessence Dive in Key

Razak plans to attend college,

GLEE weekend to be biggest ever


Highlight
is the expo
next Saturday
Staged by Keys environmental
group Green Living & Energy
Education, the three-day GLEE
Expo weekend, scheduled for
May 9 to 11, will feature a wide
range of opportunities to learn
about ways to reduce energy con-
sumption. The expo features free
electronic recycling services, kids
activities and exhibits from solar
panels to alternate transportation.


Ninety exhibits, 40 alterna-
tive-fuel vehicles, more than 30
free workshops and a selection of
organic foods herald the largest
expo ever May 10 at Marathon
High School.
This is the third year that
GLEE has put on what has
become a popular event. Those
attending will be able to register
to win an electric scooter, ogle
the very latest in solar-powered
cars and bid on a wide range of
energy-efficient products. Kids
can race solar-powered cars and


create artwork from recycled
material.
On May 9, GLEE kicks off the
educational aspect of the expo
with continuing education cours-
es on green-building standards
through the Florida Keys
Community College Marathon
campus at the high school. Topics
include courses on large- and
small-scale solar projects, green
lodging, and LEED building con-
struction (Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design, a des-
ignation from the nonprofit U.S.
Green Building Council).
Information on these courses
is at www.keysglee.com.

Greenway sign
marks progress

.The state Department of
Environmental Protection's
Office of Greenways & Trails has
premiered the first in a series of
signs marking the Florida Keys
Overseas Heritage Trail as part of
the East Coast Greenway that
will go from Key West to Maine.
The new East Coast Greenway


sign was a highlight for activities
last week that featured a tree plant-
ing and cleanup at the Knights
Key Trailhead in Marathon.
New amenities were unveiled
including picnic tables, benches,
'a bike rack and trashcans made
out of recycled concrete.
"Putting up signs is like a barn
raising," East Coast Greenway
Alliance Florida Committee
Chairman Paul Haydt said. "It's
time to signify the greenway's


presence with a little noise,
though our preference otherwise
is only the whirr of bicycle tires
on pavement and the murmur of
wind in trees."
The Greenway's green and
white pine-tree-logo signs appear
along northern state segments of
the East Coast Greenway, which
extends 3,000 miles from Calais,
Maine, to Key West. The longest
section is the 600-mile segment
* in Florida.


Over 10,000 locations
worldwide.

3 introductory
stages planned
The National Alliance on

duction for the community.
The education phase will

aimed at reducing stigma and
discrimination against people
with brain disorders.
The third phase will be for-
mation of support groups for
family members and care-
givers of people struggling
with mental illnesses. Meet-
ings will start in September at
St. Columba Episcopal

Island Fest promises fun


Weekend event
in Islamorada
will have it all
The annual Florida Keys
Island Fest today and
Sunday "is shaping up to
be the biggest and the best ever,"
according to the sponsoring
Islamorada Chamber of
Commerce.
The celebration of island life
takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 .m.
both days at Founders Park at
mile marker 87 bayside.
Everything you would want at a
fest - food, art, dogs, music -
will be there.
The arts and crafts area has
been expanded and now offers
one of the finest juried events in
the Keys.
Artist Victor Leong's favorite
medium is sand, and he's willing
to share his expertise. The
renowned South Florida sand
sculptor plans to build an enor-


mous beachfront sand castle and
offer sandcastle-building lessons
to the young and young at heart.
Also exhibiting is Vicki
Oriold Zawadowycz from Palm
Beach County, whose collection
of paintings reflects her pictur-
esque South Florida surround-
ings. She works primarily in
gouache, a technique of painting
with opaque watercolors pre-
pared with gum, and her pieces
often are focused on tropical
birds, fish and scenery. Other
participating artists include Fred
Link of Haines City, showing
impeccably detailed African
scenes carved into natural
gourds; and Bonnie Darcy of
Naples, who brings her craft to
life with stitchery on ribbon
belts, dog collars and leashes.
In between the art, wander off
the road toward the beach and
you'll hear live music both days
from award country artists like
Bryan White and Stephen


Cochran. Many local favorites
will also perform.
And "Fingers" Taylor, a leg-
endary harmonica wizard and
original member of Jimmy
Buffett's Coral Reefer Band, has
joined up with T. Scott of the
Trop-Rockers to perform. The
show will feature "Fingers" on
many of the signature Buffett
tunes, along with some of his
own boogie and blues.
Plan to bring a lawn chair and
spend the day.
The Taste of Islamorada will
take place Sunday, bringing out
the finest restaurants in the area


cooking and serving their signa-
ture dishes in a lively competi-
tion for the titles of Best Entree,
Best Dessert and other awards.
A Doggie Fun Zone is to be
set up in the on-site dog park with
activities designed to make stars
out of any four-legged friend.
Photos are to be available and
two-legged companions are invit-
ed to bring their own cameras.
As music, art and food set the
stage, fun-filled venues will be
interspersed throughout the festi-
val. And colorful kites will fill
the air, beckoning drivers to pull
off U.S. 1 and spend the day.


THE WINNERS: Shelly and lan Campbell show Marathon
artist Sandy Mezinis's original watercolor 'Coconut Palms,'
the raffle prize from the Florida Keys Watercolor Society's
26th annual exhibition. Proceeds from the raffle help fund
the group's publicity for the following season and a
percentage goes back to the artist. This year's tally was
nearly $2,500.

A Keys sculptor heads to Hong Kong


Racchi joins
global artists
for symposium
Just as this was going to
press, The Studios of Key
West Director Eric
Holowacz e-mailed me a note
about Key West sculptor Jim
Racchi's participation in the
Hong Kong Tin Shui Wai
International Sculpture
Symposium in that city's wet-
land park.
It has sculptors from around
the globe
- China,
Zimbabwe,
Macchu
Picchu,
- Mexico,
f the
. 1l Netherlands,
' New
Zealand,
Czech
. Republic,
Argentina
Judi Bradford and Russia
- but
Racchi, from Key West, is the
only American.
Racchi is listed in the con-
ference schedule to speak
about Sculpture Key West and
earlier in the month he pre-
sented a workshop. He is one
of 11 artists invited to con-
struct a sculpture in situ at the
wetland park in the midst of
downtown Hong Kong.
The artists work on their
projects 5 1/2 days a week
and have cultural trips in
Hong Kong and the confer-
ences on the remaining days.
They are provided accommo-
dations, meals, studio space,
scaffolds, tents, 220v electric-
ity, welding equipment and
travel subsidies. The stone,
wood and steel are also pro-
vided.
The 29-day sculpture proj-
ect is part of China's broad
2008 Olympic Games plan.
Racchi is a ranger at Fort
Zachary Taylor State Park
as well as a sculptor, and is
also the founder and a board
member of the wildly popular
Sculpture Key West, which
produces the annual outdoor
two-location sculpture show,
the 2008 edition of which
recently closed.
Speaking of Fort Zach, I
was cruising YouTube recent-


This is an aerial view of Tin Shui Wai Wetland Park in downtown
Hong Kong, where Key Wester Jim Racchi presented a workshop.


ly and one of the featured
clips was "Save Our Pines at
Ft. Zach in Key West."
It's a beautiful cinematic
view of the pines and a clear
and precise presentation of
the case for preserving the
swaying trees. It's produced
by Digital Island Media,
with Steve Panariello's fine
camera work. Ben Harrison's
wise and comforting voice
narrates.

And speaking of Ben
Harrison, today and Sunday
are the last two days of the
2008 run of "Clouds Over

The show premiered last
year at the Marathon
Community Theatre under
the direction of Thomas
Cullen. This year's presenta-
tion is directed by Earl and
Elizabeth Halbe.
The set by Rick Worth
consists mainly of a chair and
a very clever desk that con-
verts into whatever is needed.

tines are the bait for this ven-

nitely the star .of this season.
Well, I have to give credit
to the creme puffs, too.
Intermission features heaven-
ly creme puffs that bring
home why we love pastry
chefs.
The show starts at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $15 at the door or
in advance from Blue Heaven
(296-8666) and the Harrison
Gallery (294-0609).

Cinco de Mayo
rules the fun
this Monday
Lick the salt from your
hand or shove a lime into
a bottle of beer.
Whatever you please, it'll be
at the 14th annual Cinco de
Mayo Fiesta at the Schooner
Wharf Bar on the historic Key
West waterfront Monday, where
giveaways will take place all day.
You can give your tongue a
South of the Border searing in a
hot-taco eating contest, a timed
competition to see who can eat
three Schooner Wharf tacos,
down a shot of Cuervo tequila,
eat a hot jalapeno and finish an
icy cold Corona in the least
amount of time.
Last year's winner in the
men's division was Joel Stanley
from Daytona Beach. Debbie
Weed took the women's divi-
sion. Jeff Arceri of Key West
took the crown in the hot-pepper


eating contest. D.J. Bill Hoebee
will offer color commentary of
the contest.
And don't forget the som-
brero - there's a Mexican hat
contest. The "hot head" to beat
is Tom Spaulding of Key West.
The popular duo of Raven
Cooper and Bubba Lownotes
will perform from 11 a.m. to .2
p.m. Then one of Florida's
hottest bands, the Yard Dogs,
will perform their Florida
swamp music blending Zydeco,
blues, bluegrass, Cajun, country,
folk and rock from 2 to 6.
And into the night it'll be
Chevy's Salsa Band. Richie
Ciavolino is smoking' on drums
and timbales. Miguel and
Dayami Cruz do the vocals and
hot conga drums. And guest
Manny Lopez sizzles on the
trumpet and flute synthesizer to
let everyone dance deep into the
Cinco de Mayo night.

What is Cinco de Mayo anyway?


Festival has
its roots in
Mexico war
According to the Web site
http://clnet.ucla.edu/
cinco, it's "a date of
great importance for the
Mexican and Chicano commu-
nities. It marks the victory of
the Mexican Army over the
French at the Battle of Puebla.
"Although the Mexican
army was eventually defeated,
the Batalla de Puebla came to
represent a symbol of Mexican
unity and patriotism. With this
victory, Mexico demonstrated
to the world that Mexico and
all of Latin America were will-
ing to defend themselves of any
foreign intervention. Especially
those from imperialist states


bent on world conquest.
"Cinco de Mayo's history
has its roots in the French
occupation of Mexico. The
French occupation took shape
in the aftermath of the
Mexican-American War of
1846-48. With this war,
Mexico entered a period of
national crisis during the
1850s. Years of not only fight-
ing the Americans but also a
civil war had left Mexico dev-
astated and bankrupt.
"On July 17, 1861,
President Benito Juarez issued
a moratorium in which all for-
eign debt payments would be
suspended for a brief period of
two years, with the promise
that after this period, payments
would resume.

French refused to allow Juarez
to do this, and instead decided
to invade Mexico and get pay-
ments by whatever means nec-
essary. The Spanish and
English eventually withdrew,
but the French refused to leave.
Their intention was to create an
empire in Mexico under
Napoleon III....
"In 1862, the French army
began its advance. Under
General Ignacio Zaragoza,
5,000 ill-equipped Mestizo and
Zapotec Indians defeated the
French army in what came to
be known as the Batalla de
Puebla on the fifth of May.
"In the United States, the
Batalla de Puebla came to be
known as simply 5 de Mayo
and unfortunately, many people
wrongly equate it with Mexican
independence, which happened
Sept. 16, 1810."

'The Creation'
marks 175 years
"The Creation" by Franz
Joseph Haydn will be per-
formed Sunday at 7 p.m. at St.
Paul's Episcopal Church in Key
West in honor of the church's
founding 175 years ago.
Emily Boyd Lowe, founder
of the Keys Chorale and a
music professor at Florida Keys
Community College, will con-
duct the 60 or more singers per-
forming it. "The Creation" is
considered by some to be the
last great oratorio in history.
It's not liturgical or meant
for a church service, but for the
concert hall. It was composed in


London in 1798 in a somewhat
awkward English and translated
ito German later. It was pub-
lished in both languages but
will be performed in the origi-
nal English. The words tell the
story of the original chaos, the
entrance of animals and the
romance of Adam and Eve.
Soloists include Jim Carter,
Melody Cooper, Libby Curtis,
Kim Gordon, Michael McCabe,
John Rudolph, Melissa
Tausche, Dean Walters and
voices from the choir. Joseph
Lowe will accompany the on
the church organ.
The church is at Duval and
Eaton streets. Cost is $10 for
adults; kids are admitted free

seven categories, will be judged
by Norman Aberle, curator of
Key West Art and Historical
Society's Custom House
Museum.
"We all loved the women's
show that the Custom House
sponsored for so many years,"
SoDu partner Fran Decker said.
"They had not had room in their
schedule for it for the last three
years so we put together a simi-
lar event at the gallery."
The gallery "is a smaller
space than the museum, so that
limitation led right into juried
entry, which enhanced the
show's potential," added Judi
Bradford, another of the six
SoDu partners.
"From a Woman's Hand"
comprises paintings, sculpture,
fine crafts (including two quilts),
photography, mixed media and
jewelry. The works will hang
through May.
After an arts degree from the
prestigious Pratt Institute, Aberle
worked as a graphic designer
and illustrator in Connecticut but
segued into designing gardens,
which was what he was doing in


Key West when he answered an
ad for the front desk at the newly
renovated Custom House
Museum.
Fewer than two years later he
was curating. He coordinated six
women's shows at the Custom
House, the last one opening on
the eve of a hurricane evacuation
in 2005.

Red Cross trains
new babysitters

Summer planning is under-
way and no one feels the pinch
more than moms and dads do.
That's why the American Red
Cross encourages families and
caretakers to look for trained
and certified babysitters for
their summer needs.
To feel more relaxed and
secure, parents and caregivers
need to have a sitter they know
has been trained in the safety
and well being of their child.
Last week in Key West, the Red
Cross trained 10 youths,
according to volunteer instruc-
tor Donna Roberts.
Participants learn to admin-
ister basic first aid; how to
properly hold and feed a child;
take emergency action when
needed; monitor safe play and
actively engage your child; and
some may be certified in infant
and child cardiopulmonary
resuscitation.
The-Red Cross babysitters'
training program is open to girls
and boys ages 11 to 15.
For information on times and
locations of upcoming classes,
contact the Red Cross at 296-
4033 or 852-9612.

Keys trip cements coral love


Arkansan man
embraces
aquaculture
McClatchy Tribune

Jim Wente admits he is a reef
geek, addicted to collecting and
growing different types of coral.
"I've always had a fascination
with the ocean," said Wente, sit-
ting in a small office space at the
rear of his family's business,
Bert's Pet Center in Russell, Ark.
"It probably started when we
went to Key West 4nd I could see
so many things in that clear
water. I just remember playing
with stuff I found there. That is
where I saw my first octopus and
my first barracuda."
Wente, 30, said his interest in
aquatic life was likely sparked at
an even younger age as he
worked with the fish tanks at the
pet shop on Diederich Boulevard.
"At first, my fascination with
fish led me to crawly stuff like
invertebrates. Then I started div-
ing into coral," he said.
A 1995 graduate of
Portsmouth East High School,
Wente said he initially majored in
business administration when he
enrolled in college.
"And I knew that wasn't what
I wanted to do so I went back to
the store," he said. "I went back
to college later and studied biolo-


gy, but work at the shop taught
me more than I could learn from
the books."
At that time, roughly a dozen
years ago, Wente said "nobody
messed with [saltwater] any-
where" and he set out to learn
more about the new technologies
available to sustain plants and
animals that live only in that
environment.
He then learned about efforts
to culture coral in saltwater tanks
as part of an effort to help scien-
tists discover conditions that kill
coral or allow it to thrive. He also
developed a considerable appre-
ciation of the variety of color and
form exhibited by different types
of coral in different places.
"Corals are an animal and a
plant living in one structure," he
explained, excitement evident in
his eyes as he talked about the
incredible diversity of color and
structures exhibited by coral from
different parts of the world.
With a bit of practice, knowl-
edge and the right aquarium
equipment, Wente'said coral isn't
especially difficult to grow.

New colonies
"Just like with a plant, you can
take cuttings from coral and grow
them," he said, explaining the
process known as fraggingg," or
breaking the living specimens
into smaller chunks to grow new


colonies of captive coral. The
process is similar to cloning, with
each new "generation" sharing
the traits of the parent formation.
"Once you get some experi-
ence in this it isn't hard to do.
People have been able to help
replenish reefs with captive coral
and it has given [collecting] jobs
to people in third world coun-
tries," he said.
"As a hobby, we don't expect
to go and restock the Great
Barrier Reef or anything," he
said. "But because of what we do
a species -would not be entirely
lost if a natural disaster hits."
With more than a decade of
experience collecting, cultivating
and sharing coral, Wente said fel-
low enthusiasts have an array of
coral types growing in. tanks
across the country.
"In tanks we have cuttings all
over the Tri-State and the U.S.
I've got customers who drive
four and five hours to get here for
coral. People are now growing
corals that, five years ago, were
said to be impossible," he said,
noting area enthusiasts have coral
specimens that originated "basi-
cally from any country that can
be collected from."

No net loss
As coral enthusiasts, Wente
said their goal is essentially to
grow more coral than is being
taken, or being destroyed, from
the world's reefs.

Conchs


Ratcliff and
Alfonso shut
down McCarthy
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

One's the star second base-
man, the other's the star short-
stop. Both excel with the bat and
the glove.
But Tuesday afternoon, in
Fort Lauderdale, Frankie Ratcliff
and Raiko Alfonso emerged as
pitching heroes to preserve Key
West High School's 6-5 victory
over Archbishop McCarthy in the
4A regional quarterfinals.
Ratcliff, a junior who had
pitched only six innings all sea-


son, relieved starter Blayne
Weller after Weller had given up
a hit that had cut the Conchs' lead
to 6-5. Ratcliff hit the first batter
he faced but, three batters later,
used a curve ball to strike out
Ivan Santos with the bases
loaded.
Coach Miguel Menendez then
brought Alfonso - a senior who
had pitched only three innings all
season - in from shortstop to
pitch the bottom of the seventh.
Using a fastball and a curve, he
retired the side in order, the last
two batters on strikeouts.
That performance earned him
a start in Friday night's regional
semifinal game against Cardinal

Grand Prize


Have a boat?
Volunteer
as a sweeper
Volunteers with boats are
needed to serve as sweep boats
for the Marathon Offshore Grand
Prix boat race to be held May 18.
Sweep boats are usually 16
feet or longer and can be most
any type of motor-powered ves-
sel. They serve as the security
boats for the race course and
work in conjunction with race
control and local law enforce-
ment vessels. Each vessel partici-
pating should have at least two
people aboard.
Anyone interested should call
743-7223. For more information,
call Randy Means at 743-5805.
The course passes beneath the
old Seven Mile Bridge and the
contemporary Seven Mile
Bridge.
Running roughly nine miles
per lap, the course starts in
Florida Bay and proceeds west-


ward to the first checkpoint.
Racers make a 90-degree left turn
to head to the Atlantic Ocean,
passing between the new and old
Seven Mile bridges' concrete
foundations. Two more hard left
turns point racers back to the bay
side, again speeding through the
narrow pass between the bridges'
concrete foundations.
A right turn in the bay takes
racers across the finish line to a
hairpin left turn that completes
each lap.
The larger boats are expected
to navigate nine laps for a total
course length of about 80 miles.
Fans can view boats and meet
teams May 16 and 17 when the
dry pits open to the public at the
Marathon events field, between
98th and 99th streets.
Spectators can view race
action free from Sunset Park at
mile marker 47 on the east end of
the Seven Mile Bridge on race
day. The action starts at 1 p.m.

Sons lead


dads to glory


Finnish Line'
wins Big Boys
off Key Largo
Both fathers on the top two
teams in the Big Boys Off-
Shore Charity Tournament
attributed their team's success
to their sons.
The team aboard the
Finnish Line out of Islamorada
took top honors with 143
pounds aggregate weight of
six fish - five dolphin and
one skipjack - during last
week's two-day tournament
headquartered at Sundowner's
Restaurant in Key Largo.
Gary Hagen's 20-year-old
son John Hagen captained the
Finnish Line, and the senior
Hagen reported that his 16-
year-old son James Hagen
caught all the biggest fish.
"They teach me how to fish
now," Gary Hagen said.
Also fishing with them
were friends Berney Ruck of
Islamorada and Ray Stapleton
of Sebastian.
Rules of the Big Boys
Tournament allow teams to
present three maximum weight


fish each fishing day, and the
greatest total weight wins the
tournament. The Finnish Line
came from behind to earn its
win.
Second-place honors went
to the team on the Rezkill skip-
pered by Capt. Luis Perez of
Miami. The team missed first
place by 4 pounds, with a total
of 139 pounds weighed in.
The Rezkill team, all from
Miami, consisted of father
Audie Lim Sang, his 13-year-
old son Brian Lim Sang and
friends Michael Walter and
Keith Kroetenberg. The
younger Lim Sang landed the
tournament's largest dolphin at
48.5 pounds.
"He's our good luck
charm," Audie Lim Sang said.
The Big Boys Offshore
Charity Tournament drew 65
anglers fishing on 15 boats.
Proceeds were slated for the
Florida Keys' Treasure Village
Montessori School and the
International Game Fish
Association Junior Angler
Program.

Elomina doubles in three


CONCHS / From 41

Gibbons at Rex Weech Field.
(The game was completed too
late to be included in today's
paper.)
"Raiko hasn't pitched much
all year, but he might be our sec-
ond-best pitcher," Menendez
said.
Alfonso and Ratcliff last
pitched regularly when they were
in Little Conch Baseball, and
have only occasionally worked
on their pitching this season.
Their efforts Tuesday stopped
McCarthy, the District 15-4A
champion that was trying to
come back from an early 5-1
deficit.
The 16-4A runner-up Conchs
(16-13) took a 1-0 lead in the first
on a double by Michael
Arencibia and a ground-out RBI
by Ratcliff, who entered the
game with a .483 average.
After the Mavericks (19-7)
tied the score at 1-1 in their half
of the first, Key West came back


with four runs in the top of the
second. Three scored on a bases-
clearing double by sophomore
left fielder D.J. Elomina, only his
second hit of the season.
McCarthy got to Weller -
who won his fourth consecutive
game - for two runs in the sec-
ond on two singles and a triple to
cut the lead to 5-3.
The Conchs added their sixth
run in the third on a double by
right fielder Cole Harrison and an
RBI single by catcher Joseph
Gandolfo, but were shut out over
the last four innings by reliever
Jose Garcia.
After allowing a run in the
fifth, Weller hit Eric Martinez to
open the sixth. Martinez stole
second and scored on a single by
Al Avila. Menendez then called
on Ratcliff.
It was the best game of the
season for the bottom of the
Conch lineup - Harrison,
Charlie Walker-Yhap, Gandolfo
and Elomina. Together, they were
4-for-8 and on base 10 times.
That impressed Menendez,


who said, "I think they know that
they are perceived as the weak
link in the lineup, but they have
really worked hard in practice
and given us some good at-bats
the last two weeks."
