Monroe County may have set
the standard for secession, but
now that some South Florida
politicians are talking about a
break, Keys officials are staying
low key.
"I don't think it will ever hap-
pen," Monroe County Com-
missigner Mario Di Gennaro
said. "I want to use my energy on
something that is reality. That is
not reality."
Wednesday, the Margate City
Commission in Broward County
passed a resolution supporting a
split in the state, severing the ties
of Monroe, Miami-Dade,

ties from the nation to create a
51st state.
The resolution, which is also
under consideration by the North
Lauderdale City Commission,

$5M firehouse approved


Park building
also to house
office space
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com


A new $5 million, three-
story municipal building has
been approved to be built at
Founders Park in Islamorada by
early fall 2009.


The building at the
Plantation Key park will house
a fire station, county Sheriff's
Office deputies assigned to
Islamorada and administrative
offices.
The five-member Islamorada
Village Council unanimously
approved the proposal at its
meeting Thursday night at Fire
Station 20 at mile marker 81.5,
where it will continue meeting


following the Founders con-
struction.
"This solves more problems
than it creates," Councilwoman
Jill Zima Borski said.
Councilman Dave Boerner
said inaction on replacing the
village hall that .was destroyed
by Hurricane Wilma flooding in
2005 left council members with
little choice but to approve the
project.

Bull hopes for
manor site, Vasil
eyes firehouse
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Two Marathon city council-
men seem to agree on one thing
about City Hall - it shouldn't
be in trailers at the city events
field if it doesn't have to.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull has
been exploring the option of
acquiring the Marathon Manor
property adjacent to Marathon
High School, while Councilman
Don Vasil has suggested the new
fire station at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport has plenty of
spare room to accommodate city
staff.
Each will seek support for
their plan from fellow council
members at Tuesday's council
meeting.
Each councilman praised the
other's forward thinking, though
Vasil said he would be hesitant
to purchase Marathon Manor,
which is owned by the Monroe
County School Board.
"We're all trying to find solu-
tions because it is inappropriate
for City Hall for any long period


of time to stay hi trailers. I think
we all know that," Bull said.
"This is something we want to
take care of for our city and our
taxpayers, so we're all searching
for a solution."
"I appreciate someone else
doing some long-term thinking,
[but] if taking over the manor
would involve buying out the
School Board, I can't support
that kind of expenditure at this
time," Vasil said.
Bull's plan will call for the
top floor of the former convales-
cent center to be used for 21
units of affordable housing,
while the bottom floor would be
half City Hall and half either
rented office space or 10 more
units of affordable housing.
The School Board voted on
Aug.18, 2005, to purchase the
manor for no more than $7.4
million. Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas agreed in 2006 to pur-
chase the property for the same
amount of money, but it backed
out of the deal on April 27, 2007,
citing a lack of financing.
Schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said the district
has been negotiating exclusively
with Marathon since that time.
The building is not being used


for anything and Acevedo said
the School Board will likely
request proposals for the build-
ing if a deal can't be reached
with the city.
"We put it out for [request for
proposals] and look for a builder
to do the manor as affordable
housing. We planned to use it for
extending the campus at"
Marathon High School," he said,
noting the Marathon Alumni
Athletic Association has floated
the idea of putting a swimming
pool at the site.
It would be "a joint venture
that would be for the city and the
school, for competitions and
joint use for the city," Acevedo
said.
Vasil said he feels a good por-
tion of the bottom floor at the
fire station could be made into
office space.
"The meeting room is much
too small in the long term and
can be easily converted into a
huge amount of office space. We
can continue to have our meet-
ings at the" Marathon
Government Center, he said.
"There may be pros and cons,
but we owe it to the people to
take a look at it."
The City Council meets at 5
p.m. Tuesday at the Marathon
Government Center.


77 die in boating accidents


BOATS / From 1

board, in the Keys in 2007.
Statewide, 77 people died as
the result of boating accidents
last year, an increase from 68 in
2006. It was the highest boat-
accident death toll in the nation.
Miami-Dade County saw 13
boating fatalities from its 67 acci-
dents, far and away the highest
death toll in Florida, according to
the annual FWC Boating
Accident Statistical Report.
"It was a bad year but mostly
the same old story," Miami-Dade
FWC Officer Jorge Pino said.
"People get careless or choose to
operate a vessel after drinking.
We're working hard to get the
message -out: You need to pay
attention on the water."
Collier, Lee and Palm Beach
each accounted for five boating
fatalities. Broward and Pinellas
had four like MunIr, .. -

state in non-fatal boat accident
injuries with 35.
Total monetary damages from
the Keys were logged at $1.49
million. Palm Beach County
apparently has more expensive
boats; its 52 accidents combined
to cause $2.3 million in damage.
The most common causes for
Keys accidents last year were
failure to maintain a lookout (17),
inattention (11), speeding
(seven), improper anchoring
(seven), careless operation (six),
reckless operation (three) and
boating after drinking (three).
Three boat fires were caused by
failure to vent after fueling.
Monroe ranks second
statewide in personal-watercraft
accidents with 18, although 20
other Florida counties have more
registered PWCs than Monroe's

Fields meets public


VILLAGE / From I

"We've boxed ourselves in a
situation," he said. "We can do
nothing or we can move for-
ward."
The village will pay Fort
Lauderdale architecture firm
Cartaya & Associates $362,650
to design the building. If the
building is completed on time,
by October 2009, the village
may be eligible for a Federal
Emergency Management
Agency reimbursement of up to
$800,000. That money was
made available by FEMA to
help pay to replace the old vil-
lage hall.
Islamorada officials approved
a $1.8 million fire and police sta-
tion at Founders Park in 2007.
But Village Manager Ken Fields
said putting the administrative
offices above the fire and police
building - at an additional cost
of $3.2 million - would be a
cost-effective way to centralize
government services.
The village rents office
space at the Islamorada
Professional Center at mile
marker 81.9. Fields and Myles
Milander, Islamorada's Public
Works chief, wrote in their
report to the Village Council
that the additional $3.2 million


added to the project may be
taken from a capital-projects
loan. The annual debt would
replace the $112,560 the village
pays in office and storage rent,
Fields and Milander wrote.
"Building administrative
offices over the proposed fire
and police station would
replace the office space dam-
aged during the 2005 hurricane
season and restore centralized
government services to the
highest elevation on Plantation
Key," Fields and Milander
wrote.
The building would not
include a meeting space for the
Village Council, nor would it
include space to store Public
Works equipment and employ-
ees which, if included, would
be a deal breaker for several
council members.
"I'm just reminding you that
money is tight," Councilman
Michael Reckwerdt told Fields.
"Let's leave the village hall and
Public Works conversation out
of this, at least for my tastes."

Town meeting
Fields plans to hold a town-
hall meeting for residents at 5
p.m. Wednesday at Fire Station
20, where residents can go and
discuss their concerns and
issues.


Keys briefs


Speared snook
can get you jail time

An Islamorada resident was
arrested Wednesday after a
snook-spearing case at the
Channel 5 Bridge.
Michael W. Brown, 44, faces
five misdemeanor counts,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
FWC Officer Chris Mattson
reported seeing three people
apparently spearfishing near
the bridge, south of Lower
Matecumbe Key. Spearfishing
is illegal in state waters north
of Long Key.


After other officers arrived,
they reported finding "two
snook hidden in the rocks," an
agency spokeswoman said.
"The snook were both under-
sized."
Both fish had spear wounds.
A spearfishing sling also was
recovered.
Snook cannot be legally
speared at any time, and snook
season closed May 1.
Brown was charged with
possession of speared snook,
undersized snook and snook in
a closed season. He also faces
counts of interfering with an
FWC officer and spearfishing
in the Upper Keys.
One of the snook was 6
inches under the minimum
size; the other was 2 inches
short.
Snook, prized as both a
game fish and food fish, were
the first saltwater fish protect-
ediby state law.

SECEDE / From 1

counties in the state - Miami-
Dade, Broward and Palm Beach
- generate more state tax rev-
enue than the other 64 counties.
The Monroe County School
District has long made a similar
point.
"We do send a lot of tax rev-
enue to the state," Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said. "More and
more counties are joining us
where more and more are fund-
ing education locally. Money is
being distributed to counties that
don't have the property tax base
to support them."
On the lighter side, Acevedo
said he would support a move to
secede.
"We're from the Conch
Republic," he said, "so we're
always ready to secede when we
have to."
Monroe County made its own
attempt in 1982, a move that has
been immortalized with the cre-
ation of the Conch Republic and
an annual celebration.
That rebellion was spurred by
a federal checkpoint at the top of
the Keys - the U.S. Border
Patrol was stopping traffic look-
ing for drug smugglers and illegal
immigrants. It created massive
traffic jams for miles, so Key


West officials seceded from the
U.S., declared war, immediately
surrendered, then asked for for-
eign aid - which never material-
ized.
The stunt received national
exposure, and the checkpoint
came down within days.
Key West residents Peter
Anderson is recognized as secre-
tary general of the Conch
Republic. He's doubtful that eco-
nomics is a viable reason to break
up the state.
"I think they can join most
major metropolitan areas in
claiming to bring in more money
than they get back," he said. "But
does anyone think that South
Florida politicians can do a less-
corrupt job than those in
Tallahassee?"
"A Floridian is a Floridian,"
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson said. "On the up side,
it could get the Keys better repre-
sentation in the Florida Senate,
but I'd hate to see Florida begin
to divide."
Margate Mayor Pam Donovan
may not be prepared to join the
leadership of a separate country.

received since her commission
approved the idea of secession.
She had not returned a call to the:

Time to put an end

to double dipping

Tuesday, the Monroe County School Board.meets at Coral
Shores High School.
The agenda may give few hints on a hot topic that just might
surface during discussions about cutting teacher positions.
To meet a tighter budget for next year, 35 teachers have been
told their contracts will not be renewed for the 2008-09 aca-
demic year.
That's actually fewer cuts than last year, which comes as
somewhat of a surprise given the $6 million spending cut for
the 2008-09 school budget year.
All that obscures an issue that has not truly surfaced yet and
it involves a group of senior administrators who have been
invited to retire, freeing up payroll space for classroom teach-
ers, who - on average - earn half, sometimes only a third of
the top-paid administrators.
In today's Keynoter on Page 13, School Board member John
Dick raises questions about what is sometimes called double
dipping.
This comes when state employees enrolled in the Deferred
Retirement Option Program (DROP), created in 1998. It was
designed to encourage skilled, senior managers to stay, offering
a pre-retirement inducement. At the end of five years, those
enrolled in DROP were expected to retire and begin drawing
on this enriched retirement benefit.
However, an investigation conducted earlier this year by the
St. Petersburg Times found that 8,000 state employees and
elected officials not only took the DROP program benefit, but
then retired for 30 days, returning to their old posts and draw-
ing a new salary and building yet another retirement fund.
This is what's been dubbed double dipping.
Lucy Morgan, the St. Pete Times' veteran Tallahassee bureau
chief now retired, wrote the series. In 42 years of covering state
issues, she wrote, nothing has provoked as much reaction.
"Some states have laws against double-dipping," she wrote.
"Public employees cannot collect a pension and return to the
same job... Some states limit the amount of salary a retiree can
earn and still collect a pension.
"Florida has nothing like that. We don't even limit the num-
ber of pensions a person can draw. Some are working on their
third pension, collecting a government salary and two pen-
sions. And legislators, many of whom are among the double-
dippers, don't appear to be seriously interested in changing
things."
There are some members of the Monroe County School
Board - and some upset teachers - who'd like to see that
change. We'll see what happens at Tuesday's meeting to start
the ball rolling.

Village marina doesn't need more management


EDITOR:
As an annual resident at Plantation Yacht
Harbor Marina since 2002 and transient vaca-
tioner at these docks for many years prior, I find
myself both concerned and optimistic about the
proposed position being created for the manage-
ment of the marina.
I am concerned this management position
will translate into higher operating costs that
boat owners will ultimately absorb in increas-
ingly higher rates than those proposed.
According to a recent newspaper article,
funding for operations and maintenance will pri-
marily be a taxpayer burden. The rate increase
would simply fund building costs and a reserve
repair fund for the marina. Islamorada residents
should be concerned and consulted about this.
I am concerned the present economy will
have a detrimental effect on marina occupancy,
especially under new pricing. I am concerned
the people of Islamorada have unrealistic expec-
tations as to the cost/benefit ratio of money
already spent to reconstruct a marina that sits on
the edge of a shallow basin of bay water. Yet I
am optimistic village management will recog-
nize the redundancy of restructuring the current
management hierarchy once it really looks at the
facts.
First fact: This marina is not large enough to
justify multiple levels of management. If we


look at Miami city marinas and their structure,
three marinas each have a dock master who
reports to one marina manager. This manager
overseas all three facilities - Dinner Key
Marina with 582 slips, Miamarina with 130 and
Stadium Marina with 300 slips. That's 1,012
deep-draft berths, not 88 as available at
Plantation Yacht Harbor.
Second fact: John Mikusak, our current dock
master, is totally capable of handling all aspects
of the management of our newly rebuilt marina.
Since 1999, Mr. Mikusak has been my
employee of choice to consult regarding any
matter that has arisen during my long tenure
here as a resident. His reliable and knowledge-
able assistance has been a constant throughout
the years. His professionalism and willingness
to be of service to marina clientele has earned
him well-deserved respect from residents, visi-
tors and fellow employees.
It would truly be wasteful not to acknowl-
edge and reward John's tenure and his ongoing
commitment to excellence in customer service.
He's intimately familiar with the marina, its
environment and its past, current and potential
client base. I ask the village to reconsider the
creation of yet another hierarchy of costly man-
agement.

Coleman had the real conflict


EDITOR:
A recently published article in your paper
noted the state Commission on Ethics found
groundless an allegation by Mr. Jerry Coleman,
attorney, against former Planning Commission
member Sherry Popham in regard to a conflict of
interest regarding her dual position as wife of a
marina owner and simultaneously serving on the
commission that might oversee it.
Knowing Mrs. Popham now for over 11
years, I never took the allegation seriously. I
know for certain that if such a situation were to
arise, Sherry would certainly rescue herself.

Help appreciated
EDITOR:
Early last week, I had a serious medical
situation at a public place. 911 was called
and Marathon's Emergency Medical Services
people were absolutely terrific, so polite and
considerate and caring. The very same con-
tinued at the Fishermen's Hospital emer-
gency room, and Sue and Scott and others
whose names I cannot remember were won-
derful.
All of us in Marathon should be proud and
thankful to have such great medical attention.
Also, much kudos to my good friends David
and Carole and Pat and Ashley and Desiree
and the help at Frosty's Last but not least to
Lynda Sheaks from the Keynoter, who actu-
ally beat me to the ER. Many thanks to all.
Bill Ryan
Marathon


What is nonetheless very surprising is that Mr.
Coleman himself at the time represented both the
County Commission and the private developer of
the site over which a real issue arose.
His recommendation was both pivotal in the
County Commission's decision and was subse-
quently reversed by state officials. Now, I ask,
who really had a conflict of interest?
Luis Sala
Marathon

Editor's note: The issue was a working-water-
front protection law for the unincorporated area;
Popham's husband owns a marina in Marathon,
which would not have been affected by it.

Higher boat fee is final straw


EDITOR:
If I am to understand correctly,
Swe the people of Monroe County are
soon to be subject to a 50 percent
increase in boater registration fees to
pay the salaries of Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
law enforcement.
Won't that be honkey dory, reach-
ing into our own pockets to pull out
a knife and slit our own throats?
SI am so looking forward to being
harassed for driving too close to the
white line, as it were, at my own
expense. This, of course, after pay-
ing $4 per gallon for fuel, to boot.

bial straw on that breaks the camel's
back of the American people? As

neither."

were thinking of?

Editor's note: The higher fee is
statewide, not just for the Keys.


Tourism is the engine


driving our economy


For many American and international
residents, a trip to the Florida Keys rep-
resents a long-standing tradition. Family
reunions, water-related getaways, con-
ferences, weddings, honeymoons and
just chilling out are some of the unique
customs travelers celebrate here.
National Tourism Week is May 10 to
18, a time devoted to sharing the stories
of those who have made memories here
and around the nation as well as to
explain the importance of America's
tourism industry to residents and visi-
tors.
In the Florida Keys, according to a
study on the region's econo-
my conducted by the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration,
tourism directly and indirect-
ly makes up 60 percent of the
Keys economy and is respon-
sible for about one out of
every two jobs. In 2007,
some $2.3 billion of our
economy was directly and
indirectly attributed to
tourism.
A decrease in sales at hotels
and other lodging entities has Harold
the most potential of every is direct
business in the Keys to nega- Monroe
tively impact the island To
chain's economy, as lodging Devel
represents the largest revenue Counc
source. Hotels, motels, guest- on tt
houses and campgrounds sell Florida
more every month year-round Flo
than any other type of busi- Associ
ness in the Keys, including Conver
clothes, food, furniture and . Visitor
cars. board
In fact, lodging alone on an part
average month rings up about Florida
18 percent of all sales in our Comr
economy. Every single
month, lodging is the largest sales tax
payer in the county. In 2007, Keys prop-
erties accounted for $670 million in tax-
able sales. At a 7.5 percent sales tax,
that's a gross sales tax collection of $50
million in 2007. Tourism is a big factor
why there is no state income tax in
Florida.
In Monroe County, 16 of the top 20
property taxpayers are lodging entities.
In 2007, the sum of all Keys lodging
businesses comprised about $1.4 billion
in taxable property value and generated
about $11.2 million in property tax rev-
enue. Add another $1.6 million in prop-
erty tax revenue for other tourism-relat-
ed businesses such as restaurants, dive


shops and art galleries. From that $12.8
million in property tax revenues gener-
ated by tourism businesses, $4.8 million
helps fund Monroe County schools.
Tourism also provides benefits
enjoyed by residents who may not be
directly involved in the visitor industry.
Special events and community enhance-
ment projects such as the Key West
Literary Seminar, Underwater Music
Festival, beach maintenance and clean-
ing in Marathon, the TIB Amphitheater
in Islamorada and the Spiegel Grove
artificial reef in Key Largo have
received funding from resort tax rev-
enue administered by the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council and
paid for by visitors.
Frequent air service from
Key West International
Airport would not be possi-
ble without visitors as well
as the wide variety of restau-
rants and additional cultural
offerings.
. Despite tourism's benefits,
there is an understanding
that there are impacts the
Nheeler Tourist Development
or of the Council is mindful of.
County At each TDC meeting, the
rist following mission statement
>pment is read to remind members
I. He sits of this responsibility:
e Visit "The mission of the
and the Monroe County Tourist
ida Development Council is to
nation of set an overall direction for
tion and the Monroe County tourism
bureaus marketing effort in a manner
and is that will assure long-term
of the ' sustained growth in tourism
Tourism revenues while also guaran-
lission. teeing the sustainability and
improvement of our product,
including both our man-made and natu-
ral resources, and improvements to the
quality of life for our residents."
That mission statement should have
special significance at the TDC's next
meeting, because the 10 a.m. Tuesday
gathering at Cheeca Lodge in
Islamorada falls within National
Tourism Week.
During National Tourism Week, take a
moment to recognize the social, eco-
nomic and cultural value of tourism
here in the Keys, throughout Florida
and the United States.
And when you meet a visitor, say
hello and thank him or her for visiting
the Florida Keys.

Break-ins up in Key West, Marathon


Cops say some
make it easy
for burglars
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A recent increase in burgla-
ries across Monroe County is a
trend that police say won't
continue, especially if people
start locking their doors.
In Key West, about .90 per-
cent of the 50 burglaries that
occurred in April showed no
forced entry, meaning the bur-
glar simply opened an
unlocked door of a house or
vehicle and stole whatever he
or she wanted. According to
city Detective Brenda Sellers,
26 of the burglaries took place
in people's cars; all but one
were locked.
Same thing with the follow-

"It's frustrating to have that

County Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Becky Herrin
said.
Key West Sgt. J.R. Torres
says new technology, like the
department's crime-mapping
system, allows police to pin-
point high-crime areas and
increase their presence in those
areas. For Key West, it's the

Torres explained. "We have

He also says detectives

According to Sellers, 46 jail

back into Key West since the

petty crimes to increase when
such criminals are released.

Knife-wielding man
gets trip to jail

A Key Largo man was jailed
Tuesday night for allegedly threat-
ening another man with a knife.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, deputies
responded to Bayview Drive at 8
p.m. to reports of the threat.
When they arrived, they found
the victim restraining the sus-
pect, Mason Machesney, 42.
Witnesses said that for some
reason, Deputy Becky Herrin
said, Machesney was in the area
being "loud, obscene and bel-
ligerent." The victim asked him
to calm down and Machesney
then reportedly pulled a pocket
knife on him, threatening to kill
the victim and his family.
The victim was able to
restrain Machesney around the
shoulders, pinning his arms, and
took the knife away. That's when
the deputies arrived.
Machesney was charged with

THE CELEBRATION of National Hospital Week began in 1921 when
a magazine editor suggested that more information about hospitals
might alleviate public fears about the "shrouded" institutions of the
day. From that beginning, Hospital Week expanded to facilities across
the nation. Today, through promotion and participation, National
Hospital Week has grown into the nation's largest health care event.-
A look back shows just how far we've come. The first hospital
on American soil was built in Philadelphia in 1751 at the urging of


Benjamin Franklin. But early hospitals were far from today's modem
technological marvels. While they served a vital role, they were slow
to win over a population for whom hospitals were unfamiliar and
even frightening places.
Today, your Lower Keys hospital is a clean and modem, multi-
dimensional facility, with the latest technology, world class physicians
and nurses. Your hospital's main focus is to turn illness to wellness
and has a caring reach that extends far into our community.


National Nurses Week and National Hospital Week first and foremost is a celebration of people. We're extremely proud of each member of our skilled
hospital staff and we recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients, our island community and our visitors.

Cape Air possible for Marathon


It's the latest

at Middle Keys
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

As a Federal Aviation
Administration investigation of
Gator Air and Aztec Airways


continues, local officials are
hopeful Cape Air will soon serve
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Monroe County Director of
Airports Peter Horton said.talks
are ongoing with the airline,
which has provided service to
Key West International Airport
for 15 years. He said it's made a
proposal to serve Marathon.

FAA spokeswoman Kathleen
Bergen told the Keynoter the
Gator investigation began sever-
al weeks ago, but said only it has
to do with Aztec's Part 135 sta-
tus. The 135 certificate is
reserved for charter or on-
demand services.
"Aztec only has Part 135 on-
demand authority, so you can
only do four flights a week in
any given market," Damon
Walker, Department of
Transportation industry analyst,
said.
Gator Air had a schedule
advertising two flights per day
between Fort Lauderdale and
both Marathon and Key West on
its Web site at www.flygator
air.com. The Web site has been
down for nearly three weeks
now.
Horton said Cape Air is ask-
ing for revenue guarantees and
issues concerning Transportation
Security Administration screen-
ers at the airport are being dis-
cussed.
Those were two issues that
came up when the county tried to
attract Delta Airlines to
Marathon, and they were settled.
However, Delta, which flew


between Marathon and Atlanta,
pulled out of Marathon in
September after just six months,
citing runway concerns.
"Preliminary conversations
with Cape Air indicate that
they're very interested in having
their passengers screened so they
can deplane their passengers in a
sterile situation in Fort Myers,"
Horton said. He said the airline's
proposal says it would begin
service in December.
Cape Air flies only to
Southwest Florida International
Airport in Fort Myers from Key
West. It flies nine-passenger
Cessna 402s and has a code-
share agreement with


Continental Airlines.
Meanwhile, Gator Air's status
in the Keys remains in question.
"I have not seen a Gator Air
aircraft [in Key West] in quite
some time. They are still flying
into Marathon ... as often as the
FAA will allow," Horton said.
"You may have suspicions that a
new operator doesn't understand
what it takes to operate an air-
line, but you can't deny them the
right to succeed by pre-judging
them for failure."
Gator Air President Dave
Brown declined comment but
said in an e-mail to the Keynoter,
"We're still fulfilling our com-
mitment to the Keys."


PACE Center


money restored


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

After initially cutting it during
its two-month spring session, the
Florida Legislature restored
funds for the state PACE Center
for Girls program, but local offi-
cials are a bit leery of returning to
the old way of doing business.
In March, a threat of a 4 per-
cent statewide cut to the program
moved state leaders of the pro-
gram to close down the Key West
center. The PACE board of direc-
tors, the Monroe County School
District and .Florida Keys
Community College moved
quickly and established a
replacement program that is near-
ly identical to PACE, calling it
the Keys Center for Girls.
"I can't talk about doing any-
thing cooperatively," board
Chairman Dixie Humelsine said.
"We have to resolve where we
are now first."
PACE, which stands for
Practical Academic Cultural
Education, closed two centers in
March, one in Polk County and
the one in Key West. The pro-
gram provides one-on-one coun-
seling and coursework for at-risk
girls with the goal of keeping
them in school and perhaps even
moving on to college.
Humelsine said there are
expenses left over from the sud-
den closure of the PACE Center
that need to be dealt with.
"I'll be damned if Monroe
County is going to pay the cost to


close the program," she said.
"I'm not going to pay money to
break the lease because PACE
Inc. made the decision to close
the center."
Local leadership showed its
self-sufficiepcy, and now the pro-
gram seems ready to move for-
ward without the larger corpora-
tion.
A major chunk of funding for
each of the students is provided
by the Florida Department of
Education. That money, called a
full-time equivalency, comes to
local coffers whether it flows to
the School District or-ACE. The
way it works now, the money is
going to the School District and
the district is contracting teachers
for the 32 students in Key West.-
PACE board member Carol
Eismen said $674,491 would be
needed to finance the Key West
PACE next year.
"The School District has made
a commitment to maintain the
program for next year," program
Director Diana Reagan said.
"The state money will pay for the
academic staff. We're looking
now for funds for our counseling
positions."
"We have it in our budget for
next school year," School District
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said.
College spokeswoman Lydia
Estenoz said FKCC President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle wants to sup-
port the program.

blast a proposed four-month
closed season for most
grouper in Atlantic Ocean
waters.
"Irrational" and "insane"
were among the more polite
terms used by fishermen to
describe the ban, which was
forwarded by staff of the fed-
eral South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council.
"That was just in testimo-
ny," said Tony larocci, a coun-
cil board member. "You
should have heard what they
were saying in the hallway."
larocci, a Marathon com-
mercial fisherman, said he
would use his council position
to "fight tooth and nail" in a
move to change the proposal.
"I'll do everything I can to
get some kind of exemption,"
he said after chairing
Wednesday's public-comment


session that attracted about 80
speakers.
"South Florida is different
from North Carolina," he said.
"We really need to look at
some type of regional regula-
tions."
To protect the stock of gag
grouper - a species not com-
mon in the Keys - council
staff has proposed a January-
to-April closed season as part
of new rules.
The closure would extend
to related fish, including the
black grouper and red grouper
that are a mainstay of Keys
bottom fishing.
Key West charter fisherman
Andy Griffiths called it "the
most unreasonable and irra-
tional proposal I have ever
seen the government take on."
Charter customers in the
winter months come to the
Keys to catch food fish like
grouper, boat crewmen said.
"They'd be taking away our
livelihood," said Bill Bullard,
a Key West captain. "That's
four months in our peak sea-
son, which means it's about
half my income."
Larry Wren, an Islamorada
charter captain, said the
agency needs to "find a more

Passenger injured
in Tuesday crash

Both drivers were given cita-
tions following a crash at 4:35
p.m. Tuesday on U.S. 1 in
Marathon.
SThe Florida Highway Patrol
says Christopher Valle, 20, was
stopped in the southbound lane
in his 2006 Chevrolet waiting


behind a car turning onto 22nd
Street when he was rear-ended
by a 1996 Ford driven by
Reynier de Armas, 22, of
Marathon.
A passenger in Armas' car,
20-year-old Yexela Gomez, was
taken to Fishermen's Hospital
complaining of neck pain.
Armas was ticketed for careless
driving, Valle for driving on a
suspended license.


intelligent way than slamming
the door shut on us... That's
wrong."
Dennis O'Hern, executive
director of the recreational
Fishing Rights Alliance group,
contended ' the council's
assessment of the grouper
stock is flawed. "If they move
forward on this, litigation will
ensue," he said.
Bob DeMauro, who spe-
cializes in liveaboard
spearfishing trips to the Dry
Tortugas, said his eight-mem-
ber crew would be idled dur-
ing the closure.
"Our customers aren't
going to go out for hogfish,"
he said. "You're essentially
forcing me to chain my boat to
the dock for four months."
Commercial fishermen
protested that many already
have been forced out of the
lobster and mackerel fisheries,


and now face eviction from
the snapper-grouper fishery.
"A closure is going to put
pressure on some other
species," said Bruce Irwin, a
Marathon commercial fisher-
men. "Fishermen are just
going to target another fish."
Tom Hill of Key Largo
Fisheries said the ocean is
stressed by declining environ-
mental conditions that affect
fish.
"The focus is wrong, it's
not commercial fishermen or
recreational fishermen," he
said.
Several speakers said a
complete ban on taking jew-
fish has sparked a population
boom in that species. Jewfish
are voracious predators of
smaller fish.
"Nothing is set in stone,"
larocci told the fishermen.
Additional comment hear-


ings are scheduled before the
issue reaches the full South
Atlantic council at its June
meeting in Orlando.
The Key Largo hearing also
heard testimony on a proposal
to require circle hooks in the
Atlantic instead of the more
common J-hooks for snapper.
Circle hooks already are
required in the Gulf of
Mexico.
Fishermen said circle hooks
are ineffective on shallow-
water species like yellowtail
and mangrove snapper.

Keys get mixed FCAT results


Writing test
scores are up
in the district
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Most Keys students showed
improvement from last year in
a statewide writing test but
were behind their peers in
other districts on average,
according to results released
Thursday.
The Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, or FCAT,
writing exam is given to stu-
dents in fourth, eighth and
10th grades. It's a combined
essay and multiple-choice test.
Districtwide scores were up
for the eighth- and 10th-grade
students, and stayed the same
among fourth-graders. But
county averages lagged behind
state scores in both eighth- and
10th-grade results, pulling
even at the fourth-grade level.
The writing portion of the
FCAT, which also tests math,
reading and science knowl-
edge, is considered the easiest

portion of the test. Scores for
math, reading and science will
be released over the summer.
The state will also give each
school an overall score in July.
Some local schools outper-
formed others in writing, while
some lagged behind. Scores
are based on a 1 to 6 scale,
with 3.5 considered a passing
score.
At the elementary level,
Stanley Switlik continued to
outperform almost every
school in the district with an
overall score of 4.1. About half
the district's schools testing
children of that age met or
topped, the statewide average
of 3.8. Poinciana Elementary,
the district's leader in scores
from 2004 to 2006, fell in line
with district averages this year.
Key Largo School, which
broke into the upper tier of
county schools the past two
years, scored well again this
year. The kindergarten-
through-eighth-grade school
saw 88 percent of its fourth-
graders score a 3.5 or higher.
Scores for the district's two
Montessori schools, Treasure
Village Montessori Charter
School and Montessori
Elementary Charter School,
dropped significantly. Those
charter schools were the only
schools with averages below
passing, with nearly three-
fourths of each school's stu-
dents not reaching passing
scores-


Representatives from the
schools could not be reached
for comment Friday. But
School District Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said the fluc-
tuating scores there might
reflect a handful of poorer test
takers, given each school's
small size.
Key Largo School's eighth-
graders continued a streak of
high scores like their younger.
counterparts. That school and
Plantation Key School stu-
dents scored a 4.3, edged out
by Sugarloaf's high score of
4.4. Eighth-graders statewide
did better than both elementary
and high school students, aver-
aging 4.2. Horace O'Bryant
and Marathon Middle eighth-
graders averaged a 3.8.
Among the high schools,
only Key West did not make
marked improvement over pre-
vious years, showing an aver-
age score of 3.7. Coral Shores
and Marathon scored a 4.0 and
4.1 respectively, with signifi-
cant jumps in students scoring
at passing and above-passing
levels.
Marathon High Principal
Harry Russell said a school-
wide effort to encourage and
celebrate writing led to the
sharp uptick over past years.
"We blew the roof off with
the writing scores," Russell
said. "We're keeping our fin-
gers crossed that the math and
science scores are just as posi-
Live."

School District expects fewer cuts


35 teacher
contracts won't
be renewed
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The budget axe is falling soft-
er than expected, as the Monroe
County School Board looks to cut
35 teachers' contracts this year,
according to the School District's
superintendent.
Last year, the district didn't
renew 38 contracts with teachers
in their first, second or third years
of employment. Principals at
each school can choose not to
renew contracts with newer
teachers. This year, principals
were asked to cut a combined
$2.73 million by letting personnel


go.
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said some might be
"surprised" that next year's budg-
et required fewer terminations.
He also said some of the 35
teachers were cut for reasons
other than budget constraints.
Some let go for budget rea-
sons could be brought back if the
district can negotiate acceptable
early retirement packages for
some of its veteran educators.
"We don't want to give the
false sense of hope to anyone,"
Acevedo said. "It may not be that
if 30 people retire that 30 people
are going to get their job back."
School Board member John
Dick said some teachers let go
might be left with a bad taste in
their mouth. At issue is what he

Of the 10 suspects smugglers

are expected watch closely on land and on

for partying "Consider this fair warning.
We want you to have fun" at
By DAVID HAWKINS the Hospitality Expo, which
dhawkins@keysreporter.com runs Sunday to Tuesday at
Holiday Isle resort, Monroe
When the hospitality indus- , County Sheriff's Office Capt.
try parties in Islamorada this Don Fanelli said in a prepared
coming week, local police will statement.


But police "will have zero
tolerance for people who do
not respect the rights of others,
who endanger others with their
behavior and who break the
law."
The Hospitality Expo,
which brings crowds of South
Florida restaurant and bar
workers to Islamorada, "has
been well known for excessive
drinking and potentially dan-


gerous behavior," Deputy
Becky Herrin said.
The event at Holiday Isle
spills onto the flats around
Whale Harbor Channel, known
as the Sandbar, where hundreds
of boats gather on weekends
and holidays.
The Sheriff's Office, U.S.
Coast Guard and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission will be patrolling
the Sandbar and enforcing the
law, Herrin said.
Both uniformed and under-
cover officers will work at
Holiday Isle and on the water,
according to Fanelli, chief of
the Sheriff's Office Islamorada
sector. Officers from through-
out the Keys will be there,
along with a mobile command
post, multiple law enforcement
vessels, traffic and narcotics
officers and other personnel.
"We'll be targeting exces-
sive drinking, underage drink-
ing, drinking and driving, reck-
less operation of boats, operat-
ing boats while intoxicated,
and many other crimes which
in our experience have been a
problem at this event in the
past," Fanelli said.
"While we want people to
have fun, we also want this
event to be safe and to be free
of some of the dangerous viola-
tions we've seen in past years,"
he said.
Police are also warning that
they'll shut down some vessel
traffic from local resorts.
According to Fanelli, sever-


al resort owners complained to
him about boats shuttling peo-
ple between their properties
and the Sandbar. This year,
"boat operators will be given
trespass warnings" and not be
allowed to land where resort
owners don't want them, he
said.
Police say they look out for
unsafe boating because it's so
dangerous at the Sandbar with
swimmers in the water. The
fastest way to get arrested is to
drive recklessly in the area.
The Sheriff's Office says
having open containers of alco-
hol is illegal in Monroe County
"on a public street, in a car or
on the water."
Two attorneys asked about
laws regarding alcohol on
boats said it's not illegal to
have open beers or drinks in
boats on waters off the Keys.
But operating a boat while
impaired certainly is illegal,
they said.
The Sheriff's Office's
mobile command post has a
Breathalyzer device and the
BATmobile, a mobile blood-
alcohol testing facility, will be
on the scene, according to
Fanelli.
People who get so drunk
they look like they can't take
care of themselves can be
arrested under Florida's
Marchman's Act, and every
year during the Hospitality
Expo, "comparatively high
numbers of people" are, Fanelli
said.

City: Let state


enforce sewers


Annual budget
for operations
pegged at $2.2M
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
said Tuesday it wants the state to
do the dirty work in forcing resi-
dents to hook into the sewer sys-
tem.
In approving an ordinance
adopting wastewater rules and
regulations, the council overrode
a staff suggestion and voted to
give residents 360 days from the
system's availability to complete
their lateral hookups to their
homes. It was recommended res-
idents be turned over to Code
Enforcement in 150 days should
they not hook up.
Several council members said
they feel meeting the date should
be between the homeowner and
the state and questioned the avail-
ability of labor to do the work.
"With the labor force we have
... I don't think it's that big of an
issue to give them another seven
months," Councilman Mike
Cinque said.
"I'm thinking in terms of peo-
ple who aren't here; they're not
going to have people ripping up
their yards while they're not
here," Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said. "We have to give
flexibility to the part-time resi-
dents as well."
Warning letters after 90 and


120 days from the system's avail-
ability will be sent to homeown-
ers who don't complete their later
hookup. City Attorney Jimmy
Morales pointed out the ordi-
nance "will continue to say you
have an obligation to hook up in
30 days."
Cinque also questioned testing
protocol calling for inspections
on "existing piping on customer
property." Staff's presentation
states "leaks defeat [the] purpose
of cleaning up nearshore waters
because sewage is still entering
water."
"If we start going in and test-
ing these homes, they're going to
have to tear up their kitchens and
bathrooms and it'll be a serious
cost for our lower-income resi-
dents," Cinque said.
The council also voted to
request proposals from outside
companies to run the sewer system
and directed City Manager Clyde
Bumett to begin the search for a
utilities director. That position will
be in-house no matter what.
Staff presented figures stating
it will require 15 full-time
employees to run the utility: A
director, supervisor, six waste-
water operators, four
helpers/trainees, two mechanics
and a solids operator. The total
budget to maintain the system is
estimated at $2.17 million annu-
ally. Staff estimated a $170,406
savings, eliminating contractor
profit and overhead, if the city
operates the utility.

Sewer-plant purchase on table


Little Venice
would go to
city's hands
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
at the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
* A resolution dealing with
the acquisition of the Little
Venice sewer system by the
city from the' Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority.
On Feb. 12, the council
passed a resolution declaring
its intent to purchase the plant
and directed staff to negotiate
the purchase. Weiler
Engineering, the city's waste-
water engineer, inspected the
plant and concluded it's in
good condition.
The roughly $3.12 million
price tag will be equal to the
debt on the system, according
to the resolution. The city is
slated to take over the plant
Oct. 1.
* A resolution authorizing
a contract with - BAT
Construction for the City of
Marathon Marina boardwalk
project for $81,127.
The resolution states the
total budget is $130,000,


including a tiki hut previously
constructed and landscaping
fees. It says the city has
received $66,300 from two
Land and Water Conservation
Fund grants.
* Two resolutions dealing
with the Area 6 (Coco Plum)
wastewater treatment plant,
The first is a $1.88 million
contract to purchase the plant
from SBR Treatment Plants
and the other is a $276,040
contract with Airvac Inc. for


vacuum-station equipment to
use with it.
+ A discussion item during
which Councilman Don Vasil
will recommend the city-
owned Ford Expedition used
by former City Manager Mike
Puto be declared surplus and
sold to the highest bidder.
Vasil said he would recom-
mend in the future, should the
city need a car, that it buy
more fuel-efficient auto as the
city's advisory Green Team
recommended in a recent pres-
entation to council.

Park owner stabilizes rents


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Real estate in the Keys has
been a roller coaster the past sev-
eral years, but for nearly 100
households on Stock Island, the
ride is over.
Residents of Roy's Trailer
Park on Stock Island know
exactly what their rent is for the
next 30 years.
Lot rent will end up ranging
between $875 to $1,300 a
month. That may seem steep for
someone who previously paid
around $500 monthly, but it's
still well within the range of
affordable rent on Stock Island.
The new long-term fixed
leases are the result of two years
of meetings with Monroe
County officials and the resi-
dents to come up with a realistic
approach to affordable housing,
park owner Michael Browning
said.
"Our park was deteriorating,"
he told the Keynoter Friday.
"People were hesitant to invest
in their homes because they
could be 'told to leave at any
time."
Until the downturn in the real


estate market the past year,
mobile-home parks were much
desired by developers looking to
turn them into high-end housing
or use them for bargaining chips
for redevelopment. Parks
throughout the Keys started
changing hands and a flurry of
eviction notices followed.
That left a lot of people who
rented space but owned their
trailer stuck. There was nowhere
to move the trailers in the Keys,
and many people accepted mini-
mal buyouts on homes.
Browning said his company,
New Moon Management Group,
bought Roy's Trailer Park on
Maloney Avenue 15 years ago
with the goal df retaining an
affordable mobile-home park, an
investment that would bring in a
steady income. Suddenly, he
said, parks all around Roy's
started selling and residents got
nervous.
"We started meeting with the
residents to determine what they
wanted and what would make
sense for us as a business,"
Browning said.
The result is a lease with


some short-term hikes, but then
it levels off. Browning said the
plan allows his company to
make a profit while providing
security for residents.
Following those short-term
hikes, "Over the next 26 years,
they know what they're facing,"
Browning said. "Already we've
seen improvements. We have two
new trailers put in this week."
Browning said the negotia-
tions were tricky because a
majority of the residents had to
agree to what amounts rent
would increase to make the deal
possible.
"We went in with the provi-
sion that if less than 85 percent
of the residents accepted the
change, we could back out,"
Browning said. "But that didn't
happen. Ninety-four residents
have signed on."
He said another bonus of the
deal is it ensures a resale value
for the mobile homes. The leases
are transferable, so if a resident
decides to upgrade to a better
mobile home or even a modular
home, that value can be realized
when he or she sells.
"This way people can sell
their homes," Browning said.


FKCC: out with the


old, in with the new


Turnover up,
new president
touts enrollment
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

With seven more employees
resigning from Florida Keys
Community College compared-
to last school year, the institu-
tion has lifted its recent hiring
freeze in hopes of attaining
new, qualified professors.
This school year brought 15
resignations to date, six out-
sourced positions, two deaths
and four retirements. Those
figures represent an increase to
the five firings, eight resigna-
tions and one retirement in the
2006-07 school year, according
to data from the college's
Human Resources Department.
The Key West Chamber of
Commerce's wage and benefit
survey show a nine-point hike
in turnover at FKCC, jumping
from 25 percent last year to 34
percent turnover on the latest
survey.
Some faculty attribute the
increase in staff resignations to
the same administrative
changes that other colleagues
applaud.
Concern for some intensi-
fied with the resignation of
computer science instructor
Sam Hijazi in early April. At
the April 28 Board of Trustees
meeting, popular photography
and humanities instructor
Lynne Bentley-Kemp's con-
tract was noted as ending, and
the administration didn't
renew. The Board didn't dis-
cuss Bentley-Kemp's contract
at that meeting.
"Nobody has a spine,"
Bentley-Kemp said. "It's really
disappointing to me. I was not
given any reason and I was not
given an evaluation. I would
speculate that the president
based this on rumor and innu-
endo- that I was a trouble
maker."
"Unfortunately, given the
cost of living in the Florida
Keys, we are experiencing a
similar rate of turnover with
other businesses and organiza-
tions in the area," college pres-
ident Jill Landesberg-Boyle


told the Keynoter. "We have
had resignations for people
who are leaving the area for
other opportunities, or for per-
sonal reasons. We are very
sorry when people have to
leave."
The turnover rate is one
indicator of transformation
within the institution. The loss
in personnel comes as a new
college administration closes
out its first year, boasting a
seemingly infinite list of new
initiatives and reporting a 15
percent increase in full-time
student enrollment.
Closing out her first year,
Landesberg-Boyle has been
credited for ambitious promo-
tional projects and dedication
to increasing enrollment,
chiefly through new courses at
the college. Recent achieve-
ments touted by- the college
include a nearly $4 million
marine propulsion facility, new
nursing programs and a recent
go-ahead from the state to con-
struct on campus dormitory
housing for students.
Her critics within the insti-
tution accuse her of not keep-
ing faculty informed of
changes and viewing them as
recruiters rather than educa-
tors.
Landesberg-Boyle main-
tains she's been unfairly criti-
cized by a small group of staff
unhappy with change. Previous
president Bill Seeker was in
charge of college operations
for 27 years.
She's proposing to the
Board at least 6 percent raises
to bring faculty into line with a
recent compensation report
that detailed minimum salaries
staff should be making. On top
of that, she wants to offer fac-
ulty 10-month contracts
many faculty members current-
ly work about 8 months -that
would add $8,000 to salaries.
"We've received roughly
120 applications to date from
part-time instructors who are
interested in teaching,"
Landesberg-Boyle said. "We
are hoping to release' recruit-
ment advertisements for full
time faculty and staff by the
end of this week."

McPherson says fight not over


Mayor vows
to bring back
bed-tax issue
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

As the dust settles from a
statewide battle over whether to
utilize a fifth penny tax per dol-
lar Keys visitors pay on hotel
rooms, Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson said the
fight is far from over.
He also says state Rep. Ron
Saunders was originally the
main advocate of targeting the
bed tax as one that could go to a
permanent fund designated for
affordable housing.,


But McPherson says when
push came to shove, Saunders
didn't stand behind a bill that
died in the state Senate on the
Legislature's last day of its ses-
sion May 2.
"He chose not to pursue that
from his discretion,"
McPherson said at Tuesday's
Key West City Commission
meeting. "It's not going to be
the state or federal government
to solve this problem. It's up to
us."
"I gave him the caveat that
he needed to talk to the lodging
industry, otherwise they will
oppose it," Saunders said. "I
give the mayor credit; he in
good faith looked for some

answers. Politically, he should
bring the lodging industry in it."
"The Tourist Development
Council, I don't think it's ger-
mane to pitch it to them,"
McPherson said, adding that he
will propose a similar tax in the
future. "The TDC has nothing
to do legislatively with handling
the money. The real entity is the
Monroe County Commission."
McPherson bypassed the
County Commission and went
straight to'a Florida legislator
with his proposal.
The County Commission got
language that would let the
county control the fifth penny.
The bill originally would have
let the money be divided by
. where it's raised, and there were
no restrictions on how it could
be used.
McPherson likened his lob-
bying efforts at the Legislature
to David and Goliath - the
Florida Restaurant and Lodging
Industry's lobbyist were out in
full force to oppose it. That's


what killed it on the Senate
floor.
Local lodging associates
vehemently fought the initia-
tive, sparking the statewide
fight. Lodging groups statewide
said they feared the tax would
spread to other counties.
Hotel guests are charged
three pennies for tourism-relat-
ed advertising and one for
impact fees. Half the penny
impact fee goes to the Monroe
County Land Authority, which
tackles affordable housing pro-
grams. The other half-cent goes
into the city and county's gener-
al fund budget.
Early on, the Key West
Community Housing Com-
mittee proposed exploring using
for housing a bed tax, real estate
transfer tax, sin tax on alcohol
and cigarettes and a dedicated
millage.
At the time, Saunders
thought the bed tax was the
most viable option.


TDC to

evaluate

promotions

Keys Sunday Staff

The Monroe County Tourist
Development Council will evalu-
ate the effectiveness of its adver-
tising and promotions, among
other issues, at its meeting this
week.
The council staff has pro-
duced a report that outlines the
demographic of Keys visitors. It
focuses on potential tourists who
sought information from the
TDC, following up with them to
see if or when they visit the
Keys.
An average Keys visitor is a
54-y-ear-old white person with an
income between $50,000 and
$99,999, according to the report.
The board has sought tourists
who earn more than $100,000,
looking for those who can spend
more. Some members have been
opposed to that policy, saying
less-expensive accommodations
should also be promoted. Cost of
lodging is the central negative
issue in the report, though per-
ceptions of high rates proved
higher than actual rates.
Advertising and public rela-
tions efforts are not made in vain,
according to the report, though
public relations proved slightly
more effective.
Also at the meeting, the board
will consider a first draft of next
year's $14 million budget,
review its emergency prepared-
ness and weigh extending its $1
million pledge toward costs of
the sinking of the former military
ship USS Vandenberg as an arti-
ficial reef off'Key West.
When first proposed, the scut-
tling was estimated to cost $5.7
million. The latest estimates put
the price tag now at $8.45 million
- roughly 40 percent more than
first expected.
The TDC meets at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at Cheeca Lodge in
Islamorada. The board meets
every six weeks, rotating loca-
tions up and down the Keys.

$5 million going to Roosevelt Sands


Key West won
funding from
CWHIP pool
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The city of Key West grate-
fully accepted $5 million it
asked for in a state affordable
housing grant that will go to
redevelop the deteriorating 38-
unit Roosevelt Sands Jr. com-
plex in Bahama Village.
The state Legislature
adjourned last week with some
good news for the city, which
will receive funds from the


Community Workforce Housing
Innovation Pilot Program, or
CWHIP, a pool administered by
the Florida Housing Finance
Corp.
The city applied for the grant
in January, and needed the
money to complete the $7.5 mil-
lion redevelopment project. At
its Jan. 2 meeting, the Key West
City Commission accepted $2.5
million in federal disaster-recov-
ery money for the project..
"That will put that in the
ground and up in the air," Mayor
Morgan McPherson said.
The next step is the city's
request for proposal for a builder

"We go back to Fred's

studied really hard and

of letting anyone else be

my work including these
fabulous veneers. I love .
how he loves his work.

work done. I even

to redevelop the units.
But Key West can't expect
that kind of monetary help next
fiscal year, as CWHIP's pool
will go from $62.4 million avail-
able this year to a zero next year.
Due to a tight budget year, that
funding source was slashed,
along with $87.8 million for
other state housing programs.
According to McPherson,
there are $18 million in residual
funds left in the CWHIP from
last year, due to projects that
died from neighbor's objections.


McPherson was pleased with
the results of many Tallahassee
meetings, and credited city lob-
byists Gray/Robinson's efforts in
garnering the housing funds,
making the total for state money
pledged $6 million - the other $1
million will go to the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg artificial reef proj-
ect.
"For us to walk away with $6
million from Tallahassee says a
lot," McPherson said.

plex is located at the Truman

through Bahama Village.
The Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust also
filed an application to receive
CWHIP grants to restore four of
its dilapidated structures in
Bahama Village; that application
didn't make the cut.
The city' application ranked
third out of the about 85 appli-
cants, according to McPherson.
State lawmakers created the
funding source in 2006.

CRASH AFTERMATH: This is the result of a crash at 8:50 a.m. Thursday at mile marker 48. State
troopers say a 2004 Ford van driven by Norrie Harris, 43, of Miramar rear-ended this 2006
Chevrolet pickup driven by Debbie Struyf, 46, of Marathon in the southbound lane. The
impact sent the truck into the northbound lane, where it collided head-on with a 2000 Honda
mini-van driven by Norbert Frenkel, 69, of Hernando. Injuries were not life-threatening.

Commission cedes power


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@ keynoter.com


The Key West City Com-
mission passed the first reading
of an ordinance Tuesday that
would hand over the Board of
Adjustment's duties from the
commission to the Planning
Board.
"It only makes sense not to
have the body of law that passes
laws turn around and grant vari-
ances to those same laws," City
Attorney Shawn Smith told the
Keynoter.
The Board of Adjustment
would essentially dissolve and
the Planning Board would
assume its planning-related
responsibilities such as granting
or denying applications, vari-
ances and waivers to the city's
land development regulations.
The Planning Board would
also be expanded from five
members to seven, and each city
commissioner would appoint his
or her own members. Currently,
the mayor appoints members,
which the commission has to
approve.
McPherson voted against the
amendment.
Instead of its typical once-a-
month meeting schedule, the
volunteer board would meet
twice.
Commissioners said they sup-
port the changes not to avoid
their added responsibilities, but
because it seems more practical
for the Planning Board to tackle
planning issues.
Key West is one of a minority
of cities in which the City
Commission wears both hats,
city officials say.


If the ordinance passes a sec-
ond reading, it will still have to
go before the state Department
of Community Affairs for
approval.
Also Tuesday, the commis-
sion passed a resolution to allow
Spottswood Hotels to begin its
convention center and 450-room
hotel project at the North


Roosevelt Boulevard entrance of
the island.
The vote allows the developer
to complete the project in phases.
The plan for the 17-acre site
will lump the Days Inn, Waffle
House, Holiday Inn, Comfort
Inn, Radisson and a Conch Tour
Train station into one resort. The
project includes retail space, a
convention center and a restau-
rant that can seat up to 250.

Pair hands off Peppers


Legrady takes
ownership from
Fatica, Luna
Pete Legrady has acquired
Peppers of Key West, a hot-
sauce store, from founders Mike
Fatica and Tom Luna.
."We've been working on this
for almost a year now," Legrady
said in a prepared statement. "I
quit my corporate job up north,
relocated to Key West on April 1
and now here I am, living the
dream."


Fatica and Luna started
Peppers, at 602 Greene St., 13
years ago. Fatica had the busi-
ness background and Luna was
known around town because of
his involvement in local theaters.
"This concept has been a lot
of fun to develop and operate.
But the store needs new energy,
and we believe that Pete brings
the drive and enthusiasm neces-
sary to take the business to the
next level," Fatica said. "Tom
and I have become good friends
with Pete during the transition,


and will stay involved and avail-
able as needed."
Mike plans to help at the
Needham Fatica Advertising
Agency, which his wife Kathey
owns in partnership with -Greg
Needham. Luna is pondering his
options.
Legrady plans to keep the
store's formula intact. Peppers
of Key West features a tasting
bar where patrons can sit and
sample the wares with a bowl of
free tortilla chips. Legrady calls
it experiential marketing.
Peppers is open from 10 a.m.
to 8 p.m. every day.

Hybrids getting deserved 2nd look


Costly fuel
is the reason
for the option
Thought about buying a
hybrid but have yet to take the
plunge? Now may be the time
to reconsider. With gas prices
high, a hybrid could save you
money.
A hybrid is any vehicle that


uses both an internal combus-
tion engine and an electric
motor. Almost every manufac-
turer makes their own hybrid.
They can come in all different
makes from SUVs to compacts.
Here are three benefits of
hybrids to consider before you
run out and buy your.next car:
+ Better mileage. It's a sim-
ple fact that hybrids get better


ii tfr �fon r




Honor and remember our brave
veterans and troops. Their dedication
and sacrifice have protected our way
of life for generations.

Order Deadline is Tuesday, May 20.
Publication Date is Saturday, May 24.


Cost is
$14.50 per
square.
(Multiple
squares
available. Two
squares shown
below.)


Our deepest
gratitude to our
troops for their
service.

gas mileage than gas-powered
cars. Take a look at the standard
four-cylinder Toyota Camry.
According to the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency, the
Camry has a combined high-
way/city miles per gallon rating
of 25.
Compare this to the Toyota
Camry Hybrid's 33 mpg. The
Toyota Prius can do even better
with a highway/city rating of
48/45 mpg. Whatever the make,
a hybrid can always one-up its
traditional counterpart on fuel
efficiency.
+ Auto insurance discounts.
Some auto insurers have been
offering discounts on insurance.
for hybrids. Farmers Insurance
Group offers a 10 percent dis-
count, so does Travelers
Insurance. The discount does
not apply to every state. You'll
want to-check with the compa-
nies to find out if the discount
applies to you.
+ Tax breaks and benefits. In
an effort to encourage con-
sumers to buy hybrids, many
states offer tax breaks and other
assorted perks. Thirty-six states
offer tax breaks up to $5,000 on
hybrids. There are additional


perks, as well. Certain states are
allowing hybrid owners to drive
in high-occupancy vehicle
lanes, no matter how many pas-
sengers they are carrying.
This extends to hybrids that
get 50 percent better fuel effi-
ciency in the city and at least 25
percent better efficiency on
combined city-highway miles
over traditional cars.
Of course, there are disad-


vantages to buying a hybrid as
well, including a higher sticker
price. Hybrids cost on average
of $2,000 to $3,000 more than a
comparable traditional car.
You'll want to take into
account your own driving habits
when making a decision.
With all its benefits, you
might find that a hybrid is the
car for you.

The first hospital on what is now American soil was built in Philadelphia
in 1751 at the urging of Benjamin Franklin.

On May 12, 1921, America celebrated its first National Hospital Day.

The event spread across the country and was expanded to National
Hospital Week in 1953.

Today's version of the commemorative celebration demonstrates that
hospitals are foundations of the communities that built them and
nurture them.

According to Hospital Statistics, hospitals admit almost 37 million
patients each year,treat another 117 million in emergency departments
and see another 545 million for other outpatient needs. On any given
day, 658,000 patients fill U.S. hospital beds.

The nation's most traditional health care event unites hospitals, health
care workers and communities from coast to coast, building enthusiasm
and pride in the giving nature of care.

Today, according to the American Hospital Association's Hospital
Statistics, nearly 6,000 hospitals and over five million dedicated staff
members serve as beacons of hope in their communities.

This year, National Hospital Week Will be celebrated May 11 -17.

The' commitment of our community hospital helps fulfill the promise
that began more than 85 years ago.

Thank you for helping keep this timeless tradition growing strong.

Pops gets his place


Stiglitz's legacy enshrined at Marathon High


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon's John "Pops"
Stiglitz says he doesn't cry
often, but he wept "like a baby"
when he learned a building at
Marathon High School's new
campus would be named in his
honor.
The school's Career and
Technical Education building
was renamed Pop's Place at the
April 30 grand opening and a
plaque bearing his likeness will
forever adorn it.
The tribute was the culmina-
tion of nearly 40 years spent in
and around the high school, a
place where Pops says he feels
right at home. He can often be
found roaming the halls and
talking with staff and students,
"There's nothing more satis-
fying than being around young
people. That's the most precious
thing we have," he said. "It's just
refreshing to me."
Even though he knew it was
coming, Pops still got choked up
at the ceremony. True to form,
when he fought back the tears,
he made what should have been
his moment all about the kids.
Pops turned from the podium,
ordered student presenters and
band members on stage to stand
and told the audience how proud
they should be that these were
the type of people "our" school
produced. The crowd gave the
kids and Pops a standing ova-
tion.
Pops is a blunt but good-
natured and kind man who says
he formed a simple outlook on
life as a young man.
"You don't have to look far to
find someone a lot worse off
then you are," he said. "If you
can do something about it, do it,
if you can't why dwell on it."
Pops, who will turn 80 this
October, was born on Long
Island in 1928.As a 10-year-old,
he made a trip to Germany just
before the 1939 onset of World
War II in Europe.
"We went to visit my grand-
parents with my mother and she
became ill and we couldn't make
it back. So we got stuck there for
the war," Pops said.

mon and became second nature
during the war, he said. At the
time he arrived, Pops says he
understood, but did not speak
German. He moved back to the
U.S. in the summer of 1946 and
in November joined the Army.
'A machinist by trade, Pops
moved to Fort Lauderdale in
1958 and opened a shop. As the
business grew, he saw his wife.
and four children less and less.
He eventually sold it off and
moved to the Keys in 1969.
For all but three years since,
Pops has been a fixture in the
Marathon community. He
opened Arc Machine in 1979
and can still be found there most
days. His wife of 58 years, Carol
- whom everyone in town
knows as Granny - can usually
be found there as well.
Pops knew Carol as a boy
before he went to Germany and
said their relationship rekindled
when he arrived home again.
"We fought like cats and dogs
until we got married. We got it

GLEE Expo arrives today in Marathon


It's a chance
to learn about
sustainability
After months of planning,
Keys environmental group Green
Living & Energy Education has
its annual crowning event this
weekend, the third annual GLEE
Expo.
It started Friday with an
awards ceremony for green busi-
nesses. But the biggest part of it
is today's daylong Expo at
Marathon High School on
Sombrero Beach Road.
It's an opportunity to learn
about ways to reduce energy con-
sumption with workshops, food,
electronic recycling services,
eco-activities and exhibits from
solar panels to alternate trans-
portation. It's all designed to pro-
mote sustainable living, water
and energy conservation, renew-
able energy and green building
standards.
Today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at
the school, more than 70 devel-
opers and distributors of green
technologies and services will
showcase their products, includ-
ing solar-water heaters, alterna-
tive building materials and ener-
gy- and water-saving devices. At
the same time, GLEE will stage
free workshops to be provided by
. speakers on sustainability from
around the country.
Topics include "Reduce Your
Water Consumption," "Green
Financing," "Creating a Healthy
Home and Office," "Introduction
to Solar PV for the Home," "Live
and Eat Well" and "Septic
Conversions to Cisterns."


The Expo will also feature
more than 30 alternative-fuel
vehicles including solar cars,
boats, electric bikes and one of
only three biodiesel school buses
in Florida. Highlights include an
electric Porsche 959 and the
chance to drive an electric car.
There will be the opportunity
to purchase healthy food from
several vendors including
Marathon High's culinary pro-
gram and organic produce grown
in South Florida.
Sunday, a Mothers Day "Love
Your Mother Earth" menu will be
offered at participating restau-
rants throughout the Keys. From
1 to 5 p.m., the Green Homes
Tour offers Expo visitors who
sign up a chance to visit energy-
efficient homes with sustainable
attributes throughout the Keys.
They include houses powered by
renewable energy such as solar,
built from alternative building
materials, and renovated houses
that are now energy- and water-
efficient.
The cities of Key West and
Marathon and Monroe County
are providing free bus service
between Key West and Marathon
for those wanting to go to the
Expo.
The Key West depot will be
the Gato Building at 1100
Simonton St. Just remember to
tell the driver you are going to the
GLEE Expo and he or she will
drop you off at Marathon High
School.

he joked.
The couple has six grandchil-

uating from college this year,
and five great-grandchildren.
All these years later, Pops
remains heavily involved with
the school he loves so much. He
played a big role in lobbying the


School Board to provide
Marathon with a new school it
could be proud of.
"I was only one out of hun-
dreds. I'm getting the credit for
the building, but the whole town
fought for that school," he said.
Pops says he and Granny
plan on remaining fixtures at
Marathon's "state-of-the-art"
new campus.
"As long as they'll have me,
I'll be there," he said.


NOTICE TO KEYS WATER USERS:

TEMPORARY MODIFICATION OF

DISINFECTION TREATMENT PROCESS

The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority will be temporarily changing the. disinfection process for
the Keys potable water supply. From May 12, to June 9, 2008, the FKAA will disinfect the water
with chlorine only rather than chloramines (combined chlorine/ammonia). Since chlorine is a
stronger disinfectant than chloramines, the FKAA performs the disinfectant conversion annually
throughout the water distribution system as recommended by the Department of Environmental
Protection for water utilities which utilize chloramines as their primary disinfectant.

This temporary change in disinfectant does not cause adverse health effects. However, during this
conversion customers may experience a slight increase in the taste and odor of chlorine.

Customers on dialysis who use a proportioning machine to prepare dialysate are advised to con-
tact their physician regarding appropriate steps to accommodate the change in water disinfection.
Customers who have fish tanks or aquatic species are advised to contact professional aquarists to
avoid any problems associated with chlorine.

For more information, please contact our Water Quality Division at (305)296-2454.

First State Bank of the Florida Keys

" Launches Keys Going Green Program

S7TE There is a growing concern that the combined
dlNK effects of global warming, climate change and
irresponsible waste management pose a great
_ threat to the earth and the beautiful Florida
Keys that we call home.

At First State Bank of the Florida Keys, we believe that responsible environmental policies and community leadership are essential to the
health of our company, community and society.
The Bank recognizes and appreciates that every part of our business and personal lives has a lasting impact on our
environment and that failure to recognize and reduce the ongoing damage to the environment threatens the long-term sustainability of our
planet, the economy and our Keys community.
First State Bank, therefore, is assuming a leadership position with the community, its customers, local businesses,
non-profit organizations and regulatory agencies to promote green strategies that reduce energy usage, reuse resources and increase
recycling through example, incentives and education.
To support its environmental leadership position, First State Bank has launched an aggressive and "Going Green" initiative designed to:

-Implement energy reduction, reuse and recycling programs at all bank locations!
-Encourage community involvement through incentives ua~dducation outreach programs!
-Partner with local business and government to sponsor green initiatives!
-Actively sponsor and support Green organizations both locally and nationally!
"The Bank's ongoing "Going Green" initiatives are a reflection of our local commitment and are designed to help the community become
more eco-friendly through understanding, education and action." said Karen Sharp, President and Chief Executive Officer. "I encourage
the Keys community to join us in finding ways to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle both at work and in our personal lives. It is the responsible
thing to do for our community, our children and our future."
For over 50 years, First State Bank of the Florida Keys has been a constant that the Keys community can rely on and its Going Green
initiatives are just one more example. As the only locally owned and operated bank Keyswide, First State Bank of the Florida Keys is
committed to providing the people of Monroe County with the focus, leadership and
personalized service that only a community bank can give.
With over 200 employees from Key West to Key Largo, First State provides residents with the convenience of 13 Keyswide branches,
dozens ofATMs and old fashioned customer service, while keeping our promise to provide safe and secure banking.
If you're looking for a Bank that feels the way you do about the Keys, run by locals, like you, who have a real commitment improving the
environment, join First State Bank today!

3 Truman's legacy gets explored


�. I Immigration
.38 is lead issue


next weekend
D during his 1945-1953
administration, then-
President Harry S
Truman spent 11 working vaca-
tions at a 10-room residence on
the Key West Navy Base that
became known as his Little
White House. Away from the
pressures of Washington, he
reviewed and revised policies,
held pivotal meetings and made
far-reaching decisions.
May 16 and 17, the annual
Truman Legacy Symposium is
to be held in Key West to exam-
ine the 33rd president's immigra-
tion efforts and their effects.
"Truman's immigration poli-
cies were especially important in
that they allowed displaced per- .
sons to immigrate to the U.S. 1
immediately after World War II,
saving many from starvation,"
said Robert Wolz, executive
director of Key West's Harry S
Truman Little White House
Museum. "He also eliminated
the Chinese exclusion, saving


. 1
. .


many Asians
during the
t Chinese Civil
S-4 War, and
Wanted to end
a number of
'immigration
quotas."
Highlights
TRUMAN of the sympo-
sium weekend
are to include a reception on the
grounds of the Little White
House, 111 Front St., Florida's
only presidential museum. Listed
on the National Register of
Historic Places, the Little White
House has been meticulously
restored to look much as it did in
Truman's day.
The symposium's panels, dis-
cussions and presentations offer
attendees an opportunity to hear
.insilgtl scholars, former
n Hechler, who
est Virginia's sec-
retary tate; and experts on
past and current American immi-
gration policies.

with immigration would have
been eliminated had Truman's

The Art Bar(b) gains full steam


It's the newest
addition to the
local art scene
T he opening of Barb
Grob's new Key West Art
Bar recently was quite the
social scene. Approaching the
faux train station that houses it
on Caroline Street was like a
scene from a silent movie of the
crowds rushing the steps of the
Capitol. People were swarming
the little shop.
Grob (sometimes Benson)
founded the Wave Gallery on
White Street and subsequently
also founded the ArtSlut enter-
prise and the weekly Walk on
White. She's a force to be reck-
oned with.
Now her ArtSlut merchandis-
ing empire is weaving its tenta-
cles into the mainstream with
blogs, Web sites, an advice col-
umn, a hoppin' pink-and-black
dotted MySpace page where
"The Top ArtSlut" reveals "my
vision is to live on three different
beaches (in houses, not the
sand!), do the work I love, be
surrounded by my friends, do my
art work & writing, have an awe-
some little dog & be a beautiful,
happy, little family. That's what
really interests me. Isn't that
what everybody wants?" before
listing the music she loves.
The naughty-girl logo belies
the products: T-shirts, aprons,
how-to-be-an-art-success books
and ball caps.
The new Key West gallery
occupies Flagler Station, a year-
2000 construction erected by
Historic Tours of America as a


AConch
Train sta-
tion and
Overseas
Railway
history
" A museum.
The loca-
Stion was
. .not suc-
cessful for
the compa-
-ny; it's up
Judi Bradford to Grob.
There
has been some amusement that
three minutes after Grob arrives,
the, let's face it, somewhat shab-
by area (not that we don't love it
for that) is defined as the art and
design district. However, Fast
Buck Freddie's just positioned
its Home Store nearby and three-
decade Duval Street merchant
Tony Gregory can wave at Barb
out the window of his new Art @
830, so there is an argument for
it. That's a powerful triumvirate.
The gallery, which Grob says
will evolve this summer into a
wine bar ("where the community
can hang out," according to the
ArtSlut Web site), is well
appointed. Grob's Web site
quote: "The concept is
'Emerging Art for Emerging
Collectors... Intoxicating beau-
ty.'"
It features a prominent
ArtSlut area, lots of jewelry,
some home accessories and mis-
cellaneous items, and a little bit
of art. We get into definitions
here. What is the difference
between a gift shop and art
gallery? I'm not saying I have
the answer.

Island celebrates Cuba


Cigar dinner,
dominoes among
planned events
R evelers in Cuban dress are
scheduled to conga from
the shores of the Atlantic
Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico
May 23 night to kick off Key
West's ninth annual Cuban -
American Heritage Festival.
The festivities are to continue
through May 25 with events cel-
ebrating the island city's rich and
colorful Cuban heritage.
Just 90 miles from Cuba, Key
West was the site of nearly 150
cigar factories in the mid- to late
1800s, when the city welcomed
thousands of Cuban immigrants
seeking greater freedom. The
family-oriented Cuban American
Heritage Festival showcases the
vibrant culture and customs they
brought with them to Key West.
Led by Comparsa Key West,
the festival's official dance
troupe, the conga line is to step
off at 8 p.m. and proceed down
mile-long Duval.Street from the
ocean to the gulf. Members of
the public are invited to put on
their dancing shoes, grab their
tambourines and join the fun.

Red Barn Theatre of
Key West is presenting a col-

mixture of playwrights, direc-

Tuesday and plays for two

"Rompers" includes Tony

Key West resident Terrence
McNally, cartoonist/writer
Jules Feiffer and "Libations,"
written by Michael Marrero,
winner of last summer's short-

Tasters Guild
focuses on scotch

The Upper Keys Tasters
Guild on Wednesday hosts a
scotch seminar at 7 p.m. at
Bentley's Restaurant in
Islamorada. Sponsored by
Martini's Fine Wine & Spirits
and Tradewinds Liquors, it
will feature different scotch
whiskies that have received
the highest awards the past
10 years.
Mark Pruckner of the
Charmer Sunbelt Group will
teach participants about the
different styles of scotch as
they taste to compare and
contrast. Light hors d'oeurves
will be served, and the cost is
$25 per person.
Tickets can be purchased
at Martini's (mile marker 81),
Tradewinds (next to Publix in
Key Largo) or by calling the
Tasters Guild at 515-8475.
Also, on May 19 from 7 to
9 p.m., the Tasters Guild will
host an Asian/Thai cooking
class with Chef George at
Holiday Isle Resort in
Islamorada. Tickets are $22.
Call the above number for
tickets and details'.


and comic content of the
pieces is comparable to many
full-length plays without the
wait.
The evening opens and
closes with pieces that explore
the nature of the theater and
its impact on our lives.
Robert Anderson's "Shock
of Recognition" asks the ques-
tion, "What is appropriate to
put on the stage?" while
McNally ponders "What is left
when an actor leaves the
stage?" Everything in between
is life.
For example, an elderly
couple relives its past - what
they can remember? A married
couple reinvents its relation-
ship, to the extent possible.
Families heal severed ties, col-
leagues vie for their worth and
lovers come and go.

Keys kids heading abroad


They'll live,
study with
host families
Eleven Take Stock in Children
students from Monroe County
have been chosen to travel to 10
different countries and live with
host families for three to five
weeks this summer under grants
provided by the group
Experiment in International
Living.
Chosen from Key West High
School are Dina Delva, France;
Aracely Gonzalez, Japan; Tylor
Wilhide, Mexico; Jesse


Hammers, Australia; Jennifer
Roberts, Poland; Reva Labbe,
Thailand; Corrinne Haskins, New.
Zealand; and Dora Cajina, China.
From Marathon, High School,
Adonis Aviles will go to
Australia. And from Coral
Shores, Gabriela Roude heads to
South Africa and Erica Mora to
Italy.
The students were hand-
picked by Experiment in
International Living, said Jim
Hall, Monroe County's coordina-
tor for Take Stock in Children, a
mentoring program under which
low-income students in grade


seven can sign a contract to get
good grades, stay out of trouble
and remain drug- and alcohol-
free. If they fulfill the contract
upon graduation, Take Stock
awards them a four-year college
education.
Hall described Experiment in
International Living as a "leader
in cross-cultural education for
high school students, having
sponsored more than 70,000 par-
ticipants over its 75 years in this
work. Its purpose is to challenge
young people to open their hearts
and minds to the world and pro-
grams now operate in 27 nations,
where participating students are
immersed in the daily life of
another culture."
This is the second year Take
Stock has collaborated with
Experiment in International
Living. Along with that group,
funding for the trips is coming
from Nick and Suzie Trivisonno,
the Padget Foundation and the
Monroe County Education
Foundation.
The Padget Foundation was
created by former Monroe
County . School District
Superintendent John Padget, long
a big supporter of Take Stock in
the Keys.
The students will travel in
June.

Red Cross trains
new babysitters
Summer planning is underway
and no one feels the pinch more
than moms and dads do. That's
why the American Red Cross
encourages families and caretak-
ers to look for trained and certi-
fied 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 instructor Donna
Roberts.
Participants learn to adminis-
ter basic first aid; how to proper-
ly 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 years and
is typically taught on a-Saturday.
An authorized Red Cross instruc-
tor teaches it.
For information on times and
locations of upcoming classes,
contact the Red Cross at 296-
4033 or 852-9612.

Samantha Ragan and Mike
Loguercio were named the most
valuable players for the Coral
Shores High School soccer pro-
grams that both reached the state
regionals.
The seniors received the
Hurricane Award, bestowed for
team leadership along with ath-
letic prowess, at recent banquet
commemorating the most suc-
cessful Hurricane soccer seasons
in years.
Coral Shores' girls went 15-5-

regional semifinals, the Sweet 16
round of the playoffs.
Chelsea McCullough received
the Coaches Award from head
coach Clint Arsenault and assis-

weekend, she was just getting
warmed up.
McCoy, 13, ran a time of 5
minutes, 11.3 seconds, giving
her sixth place statewide among
all girl middle-school runners in
the longest distance at the
Florida meet.
"It was my personal best time
in the 1,500," the Plantation Key
School eighth-grader said, "but
it was only my second time run-


ning that event."
Normally, she's only getting
started when she covers 1,500
meters, about a football field
short of a mile.
"I prefer the longer distances,
from three to 15 miles," McCoy
said. "I've done a couple half-
marathons."
The first time McCoy ran the
1,500 meters competitively
came in Tampa when she quali-
fied for the state middle-school
meet, which followed a May 3 in


Clermont. She was the only
Monroe County resident to
attend the state meet.
McCoy missed Southeast
Florida's qualifying meet
because of a prior commitment.
At the time, she finished sec-
ond among all women in the
2008 Seven Mile Bridge Run,
running a 43:18, just 1:22 behind
women's overall winner
Marlene Persson, 37.

First-time

rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Spring practices began last
week for a Marathon High
School football team that
coach Lance Martin says will


feature several players new to
the sport.
Baseball players Toby
Eigner and Jake Sjursen and
basketball player Alberic
Forest, among others, have
joined the team for the first
time.
"There's a number of kids
out there, a lot of good athletes
that should have played in the


past and they're going to help
the program," Martin said.
Martin said 44 of 53 players
have made it through the first
week of practices, a good
amount considering the team
finished last season with just
over 30 on the roster.
Because school is ending
later this year than in the past,

with prizes and trophies creat-
ing a total purse of $50,000, at
the 22nd annual Coconuts
Dolphin Tournament May 15

addition to other prizes.
The Coconuts event is one
of the largest tournaments in
South Florida, historically

anglers each year. Boats from
19 feet to 50 feet long can be
seen searching for dolphin in
the waters off Key Largo dur-
ing the tournament.
Registration is set for May
15 at Coconuts Restaurant,
near mile marker 100 ocean-


side.
A warm-up tournament,
exclusive of the weekend's
two-day tournament, is set for
May 16. The first-place angler
is to win $2,000 cash plus a
trophy. Cash awards for second
and third place are $1,000 and
$500, respectively.
May 17 and 18, anglers are
to target dolphin that could win
the $10,000 overall grand prize
or one of the other cash prizes
for first- through seventh-place
overall. Additionally, first-
through third-place cash prizes
are to be awarded in separate
tournament divisions for
female, senior (over age 60)
and junior (age 16 and under)
anglers and in the "open" divi-
sion for every angler.
A barbecue dinner and
awards ceremony are to take
place at Coconuts after fishing
concludes.
Entry fee is $170 per adult
angler and $50 for junior
anglers and social-only tickets.

Keys Ultra
spans road's
entire length
Racers are to run across up
to 40 bridges and through the
Florida Keys island chain
beside the Atlantic Ocean and
Florida Bay during the Keys
Ultra-Marathons set for
May 17.
Racers can choose from
three competitions on a route
stretching down Overseas
Highways: A 100-mile indi-
vidual race from Key Largo to
Key West, a 50-mile individ-
ual race from Marathon to
Key West and a 100-mile
team relay race from Key
Largo to Key West. All races
are to end at the same finish
line at the south end of Key
West's Smathers Beach.
Organizers expect more
than 100 runners to compete.
"It's absolutely spectacu-
lar; that's why we really
wanted to do this in the
Keys," said race director Bob
Becker, who previously tested
the route with fellow racers.


"For out-of-towners that have
never been here before, they
are going to be blown away."
The 100-mile individual
and team relay races are to
begin on the sidewalk at
about mile marker 101 in Key
Largo at 6 a.m. The 50-mile
ultra is to begin around mile
marker 51 in Marathon at 10
a.m.
At least half the race is to
be run on sidewalks and serv-
ice lanes, with the remainder
facing traffic on wide road
shoulders.
The Keys Ultras Team
Relay is to have teams of up
to six runners covering the
100 miles. Teams can be all-
male, all-female or co-ed.
Organizers are seeking
volunteers to help with race
set up, check-in stations and
for out-of-town runners' sup-
port crew.
Racers must check in at
designated stations along the
route and cross the finish line
by noon May 18. A social and
awards ceremony is set for 3
p.m. that day at a location yet

Olympics are a goal


MCCOY / From 44

McCoy was the 18th overall
runner, including the elite men's
field, to finish the bridge run.
The closest finisher in her girls
age group was about eight min-
utes back.
"Joanna had been training for
the Seven Mile and really didn't
want to miss it," PKS track
coach Kim Browning said.
McCoy has spent a lot of this
year winning local races.
She ran a 19-minute, 44-sec-
ond 5K to win the women's divi-
sion in the Feb. 15 fourth annual
Menendez Miler 5K Run/Walk,
which started and ended at
Indigenous Park near the White
Street Pier in Key West. It was
her third straight victory.
*On March 8, she was won the
KAIR 10K in Marathon. Two
weeks earlier, it was the No
Name 5K.


To get ready, McCoy runs
from 30 to 40 miles weekly in
practice sessions before or after'
school. "Some days before,
some days after," she shrugged.
The commitment has not
affected her grades; she's an A
student.
"Joanna is very determined
and disciplined," Browning said
of McCoy's success. "She takes
care of all her eating and training
on her own."
McCoy started running in
third grade in Arizona. "Mom
told me to pick a sport so I
picked running," she smiled.
"I've been running since, any-
where I can."
A Tavemier resident for three
years, she looks forward to run-
ning the Boston Marathon or lin-
ing up in an Olympic qualifier.
"It's very possible you could
see Joanna in the Olympics one
day," her PKS coach said.

Soccer players help solidify kicking game


FOOTBALL / From 44

extra practices to ease the new-
comers in.
"We're going a little slower
than we have in the past
because of being young in
positions, but we have a good
first group on offense and
defense," he said, pointing out
football is a difficult sport to
learn.


Last season, the Dolphins
finished 7-4, ending in the sea-
son in a first-round Class B
playoff game against Kings
Academy.
Sophomore Nyran Ross is
one of many returning players
Martin said have come back in
good shape this spring. He said.
Ross, who took over as starting
quarterback midway through
this past season, is firmly
entrenched in the position this


year.
"Nyran has gotten a couple
inches taller and a lot stronger
over the winter. He's far and
away our best quarterback,"
Martin said.
Last year's starter Kenny
White will be moved around
offensively next season to get
him touches, Martin said, and
will also play defensive back.
White has already received
a scholarship offer from


Western Michigan University,
the same Division I program
senior Wayman Ross signed
with earlier this year. He is
awaiting offers from other pro-
grams as well.
Sophomore Travis Leachman
has been a pleasant surprise prac-
ticing as a tight end, Martin said.
"Teams that have been in
have been impressed with his
size. We've never had a tight
end that big since I've been


here that can move like him,"
he said of the 6-foot-4, 231
pound Leachman.
Martin added the Dolphins'
special teams unit has gotten a
boost with three soccer players
trying out and solidifying the
kicking game.
Marathon is scheduled to
face Class-lA Florida Ai,
Academy May 23 in
Melbourne for its spring game.

YOUTH SUPPORT: The Marathon chapter of the Organized Fishermen of Florida donates $400
in proceeds from the Original Marathon Seafood Festival to cover the cost of medals for this
past Saturday's May 3 Junior Olympics event sponsored by the Marathon Parks and
Recreation Department. Here, OFF's Bennett Orr (right) presents the check to (from left) Parks
Sand Recreation Manager Jimmy Schmidt with park staff Ali Adams and Tracy Boerckel.

Winner take


all: $25,000


That big haul
is doled out in
Captain's Cup
Just three fish are all that's
needed to capture the $25,000
winner-take-all grand prize at the
Islamorada Fishing Club's
Captain's Cup Dolphin Tour-
nament set for June 4 and 5.
The only catch is that the
aggregate weight of the three dol-
phin must be the highest in the
tournament.
The fun is to start with a kick-
off party June 4 at the club, mile
marker 82 bayside in Islamorada.
The one-day boat-format tourna-
ment gets under way with lines in
the water at 7:30 a.m. June 5.
This year's tournament has a
significant change in format from
previous years to accommodate
anglers with captains who travel
by boat from other areas of the


Keys.
Unlike previous years, fish do
not have to be tagged. All fish to
be weighed can be brought to the
Islamorada Fishing Club by boat
or car. Each fish must be at the
club's certified weigh station by 5
p.m. sharp with the angler who
caught it.
The awards banquet is set for
7:30 p.m. June 5 at the club.
Entry fee is $2,500 per boat,
which allows two anglers to fish
and includes four tickets to all
social events.
Tournament directors guaran-
tee a grand prize of $25,000, but
the prize could be as high as
$30,000 depending on the num-
ber of boats that enter the tourna-
ment.
For more information, call
664-4735 or send an e-mail to
