Call it Team Izaguirre


Island Christian
sports program
is family affair
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Team Izaguirre will never be
the same again.
The quartet of athletic


Izaguirre brothers - Matthew,
Aaron, Phillip and Jordan -
played its last game together
when the Eagles of Island
Christian School closed out this
spring's successful baseball
season.
"Other coaches sometimes
asked me if my lineup card was
a joke. They couldn't believe
four of my top five hitters were


all named Izaguirre," said Tony
Hammon, Eagle baseball coach
and Island Community Church
pastor.
Basically, Island Christian
athletics rely in large part on
this one family.
Matthew, an academic sen-
ior, played first base and the
outfield.

Gator

Air carrier
not fulfilling
its requirements
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com

Citing "extreme" safety and
efficiency concerns, Monroe
County has suspended Gator
Air's privileges to land at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport, effective
immediately.
In a Wednesday letter to Gator
Air President Dave Brown,
Assistant County Attorney Pedro
J. Mercado said the airline "con-
tinues to charter aircraft from
various providers without pro-
viding the county with an air car-
rier certificate or certificate of
insurance or both."
Gator has been promising reg-
ular service to Fort Lauderdale
but not delivering.
Mercado's letter says "a num-
ber of flights ... have been can-
celled without any notice and
passengers have been left strand-
ed" and that "it has come to our
attention Gator Air is under

Airline told to stop flying

investigation by the [Federal
Aviation Administration] Flight
Standards District Office for pos-
sible violations."
FAA spokeswoman Kathleen
Bergen previously confirmed an
investigation into both Gator Air
and Aztec Airways, which is sub-
contracted to fly Gator flights. It
was related to Aztec's Part 135
status, which is reserved for char-
ter and.on-demand services.
Brown declined comment
until receiving Mercado's letter.
A different letter found at the
airport terminal, signed by
Brown and addressed generally
to "Marathon airport tenants,"
says "Gator Air is still flying as it
has been for the last couple
months. There is a departing
flight in the morning and an
arrival and departure in the after-
noon."
Department of Transportation
industry Analyst Damon Walker


told the Keynoter Aztec's Part
135 status allows for only four
flights per week to any given
market.
Jen DeMaria and Harry
Appel, who own and operate the
Deer Run Bed and Breakfast on
Big Pine, say a scheduled
Wednesday flight to Fort
Lauderdale/Hollywood Inter-
national Airport never arrived.
DeMaria said Appel called both
Tuesday and Wednesday to con-
firm the flight and was told it
would arrive.
DeMaria because of Gator's
failure, she and Appel drove to
Fort Lauderdale, paid $75 each to
change flight plans, $150 for a
hotel and $15 per day in the long-
term parking lot at the airport.
"I don't know what they're
Doing, but I think they're doing it
intentionally. They can potential-
ly give our area a bad name
tourism-wise [and] do harm to
the business community,"
DeMaria said, adding she intends
to file a complaint with the


Sheriff's Office.
In an e-mail to the Keynoter,
Bob Hasty of Bristol, Pa., said his
scheduled Gator Air flight on
Tuesday never arrived. He was
forced to drive to Miami and take
a flight three times the cost of his
original USA3000 flight to
Philadelphia.
Connecticut native Julie
Purcell had a similar experience
in April, when she scheduled a
trip to Hawks Cay Resort around
the supposed convenience of
Gator Air.
Purcell says Gator Air called
and said her Sunday flight leav-
ing Marathon was rescheduled to
Saturday. She was booked at
Hawks Cay for Saturday night
and her flight home was on
Sunday. She did not take the
flight and says she was billed for
two round-trip tickets that have
yet to be refunded."
"The whole reputation of the
Keys is it's very laid back," Purcell
said. "All you do is worry when
you're dealing with Gator Air."

that all of us are pretty athletic."
In a school with a small stu-
dent population, Aaron said,
those with sports skills feel an
obligation to take part.
The boys agree they discov-
ered sports on their own with no
nudging from dad Horacio.
"There was no pressure," Aaron
said. "We were the ones out
throwing the ball around and act-
ing like little kids."
"I've tried to facilitate their
interest in sports because I think
it's a good thing for life," Horacio
said, "but I never tried to force

gram, a role he occasionally finds
awkward.

where you find out how they real-
ly feel about you."
Hammon and Izaguirre agree
that when it comes to coaching
the Izaguirre clan, Hammon takes
the lead. "We had to set some
rules," Hammon said, "but it's
been a great experience."
"I try to keep my distance,"
Horacio said. "We're one way on
the field and a completely differ-
ent way off it."
The Izaguirres could win ros-
ter spots at any high-school pro-
gram in Monroe County but are
content at Island Christian's
Islamorada campus. "It's more
like a family thing here now,"
Aaron said.
Getting the chance to play
together with his three brothers
"was a good thing," Matthew
said. "I'll miss it."

Even with hundreds of par-
tying boaters, a barroom brawl
and widespread intoxication,
events surrounding
Hospitality Expo this week
still were considered relative-
ly placid by veteran law
enforcement officers.
Crowds at the Sandbar
anchoring spot in Whale
Harbor Channel off
Islamorada "were smaller than
last year, and last year's Expo
wasn't even advertised," said
Lt. Keith Barcomb from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
But a calm Hospitality
Expo is far from serene.
At Tuesday's peak, about
250 boats were anchored or
tied up at the Sandbar.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies and FWC offi-
cers made 13 arrests (down
from 19 in 2007) believed
related to Hospitality Expo,
and took 21 people into pro-
tective custody under the
Marchman Act (down from
30).
The Marchman Act allows
officers to take a person into
custody when alcohol or drugs
renders the person unable to
take care of himself or herself.
Islamorada Fire and Rescue
crews treated five people who
were "totally unconscious and
unresponsive" when brought
from the Sandbar to the FWC
base on Whale Harbor,
Barcomb said. "There's no
doubt in my mind they could
have died out there."
By the time the four-day
event ended Wednesday, four
people had been arrested for
boating under the influence.
That was three fewer than
2007.
Hospitality Expo is an end-
of-season celebration hosted
by Holiday Isle Resort and
Marina for staff workers in
South Florida's restaurants


and bars. Access to the resort
is limited to hospitality
employees, but people not
directly associated with the
Expo gather at the nearby
Sandbar.
Deputies were called to
break up a bar fight at Holiday
Isle's Tiki Bar at 6:20 p.m.
Tuesday. Officers "found a
crowd of several hundred peo-
ple gathered [around] a fight
which had broken out," said
Deputy Becky Herrin, infor-
mation officer for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office. Most
were not involved in the fra-
cas.


At Tuesday's

peak,

about 250

boats were

anchored

or tied up

at the

Sandbar.


One of the combatants,
Rene Carlo; 30, "fought with
deputies who were finally
forced to use a stun gun to
subdue him," Herrin said.
Jesus Barbosa, 22; Oscar
Fernandez, 22; and Paul
Zerpa, 21-, all of Miami, also
were arrested. All face misde-
meanor counts of disorderly
conduct or resisting arrest.
Arnaldo Pubillones, 28, of
Miami was arrested on a
felony count of aggravated
battery. Witnesses told
deputies, that Pubillones was
at a resort pool when he struck
and choked his pregnant girl-
friend, 23.
Marine officers put a large
fleet of patrol vessels on the
water during Hospitality
Expo, and will do the same at
this weekend's Memorial Day.

Building stops


MARLIN BAY / From I

deposits have been returned.
L.M. Sandler & Sons, a
Virginia-based company, "is one
of the equity investors in that
development and the funding for
that project was committed by
BankUnited. They, as reflected
in their most recent quarterly
report, are having difficulty,"
Sandler spokesman Raymond
Gottlieb said.
Gottlieb said funding prob-
lems with Marlin Bay can be
traced to BankUnited failing to
fulfill a $60 million loan obliga-
tion with Sandler. He said
Sandler has received just over
$50 million of the loan and also
has $15 million of its own
money invested in the project.
According to a Tuesday
www.thestreet.com report,
BankUnited reported a net loss
of $65.8 million for the first
quarter of 2008.
Third Generation owner Jay
Massaro is just one of several
contractors and vendors to file
for liens against Marlin Bay this
week. He said he is owed in
excess of $13,000.
"Some of the local folks have
been affected by this dramatical-
ly. When I filed my lien
[Thursday], I was the fifth one
already," Massaro said, adding
Marlin Bay's lease with him ran
through the end of this year at
$2,500 per month.
"When I reflect on what hap-
pened, I couldn't help but think
about the poor people that had to


leave their homes in Gulfstream
[Trailer Park], all in vein," he
said.
Former Gulstream owners
Frank and Roseanne Mauro sold
the park to Sandler, which
sparked a legal battle over the
eviction of 90 mobile homeown-
ers, in 2003. They were finally
forced to leave in July 2004.
Coastal Construction Group,
a main subcontractor on the
project, placed a $593,326 lien
on Marlin Bay on May 8.
Marlin Bay developer Thad
Rutherford, who represents
Coral Gables-based SouthStar
Development Partners, said he
hopes the work stoppage is just
"a bump in the road."
"Where it goes from here is
up to the market and hopefully it
comes back quickly. I don't
think anyone is abandoning any-
thing; it's just in a state of transi-
tion," Rutherford said.
Rutherford declined com-
ment as to exactly why construc-
tion was halted, but said there
are positives to be taken from
the project.
"We got through with what
we said we were going to do," he
said, referring to the 13 market-
rate units and amenities making
up Phase 1 of the planned com-
munity. "You can't keep build-
ing unless there's a significant
amount of people interested in
living there."
Besides the market-rate
homes and amenities such as the
marina and clubhouse, there are
eight affordable units on the
property.

Cigarettes cause
pair of Keys fires

Careless smoking is being
blamed for separate fires in
Marathon and Key West the past
week.
Thursday night, a trailer
burned down in the Ocean
Breeze Trailer Park on llth
Street in Marathon.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says the owner told
deputies after the fire was put
out that she'd been smoking in
bed and dropped her cigarette by
accident. She said she couldn't
find it and it caught the sheets on
fire. The fire spread quickly.

the resident as Sandy Seay, 52.
Wednesday, a flicked ciga-
rette butt caused a 15-foot-tall
fire that broke out in the foliage
near Smathers Beach in Key
West at 7:40 p.m., Key West Fire
Department Chief of Operations
Mike Karash said.
The fire was reportedly 25
feet wide by 150 feet long and
took roughly 10 to 15 minutes to
extinguish.
"It was most likely improper
disposal of smoking materials,"
Karash said. "There wasn't any
indication that it was anything
intentional."
With vegetation drying out
from a lack of rain, fires start
easily and spread quickly,
Karash said.

Marlin Bay affirms

housing-boom folly

One can't help but escape the irony.
That sound of silence you hear on Louisa Street's
bayfront in Marathon iS the sound of construction halted,
work ceased on what was billed- as the finest planned
community to be constructed in the Keys.
But now the operators of the bobcats, the electricians,
the plumbers, everyone connected to the Marlin Bay
Yacht Club development, has less income because the
work site suddenly closed down this week, a testament to
the national housing market slump.
Simply, Virginia-based L.M. Sandler & Sons took on
more than it could handle, believing the skyrocketing real
estate market three years ago would continue its orbital
flight and it would ride the wave.
There were grand plans - a $220 million waterfront
community with 84 homes, a private marina, full-time
dock master, clubhouse, and other amenities. The prices
were steep - $1.6 million to $4 million for homes up to
.6,432 square feet.
How many houses were built?
Thirteen. How many sold? Two, and for those, the
developer gave back the deposits rather than sell the
houses because that would have meant operating the full-
service marina and other amenities for just two house-
holds.
The land-speculation failures that left solid businesses
in their wake dot the Keys. Just look to the Upper Keys
and Plantation Fisheries, for example, which were actual
businesses that employed local people and then either
closed or were fumbled into closure.
Now we're left with vacant, soon-to-be-decaying build-
ings with no foreseeable future - and many local con-
tractors owed tons of money by the speculators.
At the Marlin Bay site, the sound of silence once held the
sound of community - the Gulfstream Trailer Park. The
park was bought and the residents unceremoniously evict-
ed to make way for the rich who would come. Some found
other places, others had to leave the Keys because they
had nowhere else to go.
And the rich? They didn't come.
So all that remains at Marlin Bay and other Keys loca-
tions are reminders of greed and failure, of lives-and
homes literally destroyed for other homes that, now,
either sit vacant or won't ever get built.

Gator Air leaves traveler in the lurch


EDITOR:
At 5 p.m. May 13, I was waiting for the rep-
resentative of Gator Air to board a 5:30 flight to
Fort Lauderdale with a connecting flight to
Philly (USA3000) at 8 p.m.
At 5:30 no rep, no plane. I called Gator's
answering machine, no return call.
At 6, no return call, no plane, I called again.
At 6:15, no return call, no plane, I called
again.
At 6:20, the Florida Keys Marathon Airport
terminal is closing. We must wait outside with
our baggage.


At 6:30, 6:45 and 7, ditto, ditto, ditto. I called
USA3000. Sorry you won't be here, they say.
You lost your flight and your money.
On May 14, I drove to Miami, got a flight to
Philly, at 3 three times the cost.
On May 18, still no return call from Gator.
However, there is a charge on my credit card for
the flight.
I'm afraid this Gator is destined for the Blue
Hole and should not be in the air charter busi-
ness.

Digital TV requirement should be nixed


EDITOR:
I'm sure most of us have all seen the
announcement on TV that states, "In
February 2009, all television stations will be
converting to digital cable."
It's nice that the government is ready and
willing to issue a rebate coupon for people
with analog televisions so they can be con-
verted to digital cable. OK does anyone else
see something wrong with this picture (par-
don the pun)?
Having a TV is a luxury, not a necessity.
Having a vehicle is a necessity. We depend
on them to take us to our jobs, our children
to school and anywhere else in between. The
staggering cost of fuel is becoming way too
much for some us to handle.


So why doesn't the government offer a
rebate on hybrids or vehicles with an aver-
age of 30 mpg? Even with the rising costs of
gas, some of us are not seeing a rise in the
paychecks. Employers also have to pay at
the pumps, so they have to know how bad
it's getting, right? I live 15 miles frdm my
job and my daughter's day care is about 18
miles award,
. I own a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is
not the leanest on the gas, but I own it out-
right and I put every bit of savings into it to
buy it. I think it's time the government to
step for the people who support it.

Sheriff candidates' platforms vary widely


Davis questions
Peryam's stance
on contributions
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Ken Davis says he's beholden to
no one, and says that makes him the
best choice to replace retiring Monroe
. .- County Sheriff Rick Roth in this
Year's election.
"Taking [campaign contributions]
from employees of the Sheriff's
" Office or contractors with the office
compromises you," he said. "Why
would anyone under any circum-
stances take more than $12,000 from
the people they're supposed to lead?"
Davis, a Republican, says another candidate,
Sheriff's Office Capt. Bob Peryam, might not make
sound choices if he's willing to take contributions from
employees of the department.
"When he makes a decision how to spend tax dollars,
etcetera, what's he basing it on?"
In addition to the Democrat Peryam, other candidates
are Republican attorney Phil Mandina, non-affiliated
Marathon cook Bob Horan and non-affiliated Sandra
Downs of Cudjoe Key, whose family has a tree-cutting
company. As it stands, Davis and Mandina would face
each other in the August primary.
Davis, a 52-year-old law enforcement veteran, retired
from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in April
and has worked in law enforcement for nearly 30 years.
"The Sheriff's Office is at a crossroads," he said. "Do
we want to continue in this positive direction or not?
When you're sitting at home at night, do you want to
know the person supervising your safety is the best, or.
had the best checks written?"
Davis said the county needs to toughen its jails.
"We have one of the highest recidivism rates in the
state," he said. "People that break the law are watching
television and using the Internet. There is free health
care for all inmates."
Davis said some people actually break the law to
access the health care they are unable to access in a law-
abiding life. He said since the state mandates jail health
care, the state needs to provide better funding to retain it.
"And we need to work with the state for better pro-
grams for drug addiction," he said.
As with most of the five candidates vying for the job,
Davis acknowledges recruitment and retention of quali-
ty employees is a major issue.
"We've got to look at the pay," he said. "Everyone
wants the best but they don't want to pay for the best."
He said stricter rules governing use of Sheriff's
Office cars would be a cost-saver.
"We have 39 deputies that live outside the county,"
Davis said. "They live outside the county .and are
allowed to drive their cars as far as Snake Creek. With
the rising cost of gas and wear and tear, that's like giv-
ing them $500 to $600 a month."
Davis said a housing allowance rather than trans-
portation would be more equitable for employees and
serve as an incentive to live in Monroe County.
Davis has lived in the Keys for four years, though he
lived here previously. The Key Largo resident is married
to a law enforcement officer and has three children.


Horan running
with philosophy
of libertarian
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Anyone who's lived in the Keys
for the past decade or more is famil-
iar with one of the more unorthodox
candidates for Monroe County sher-
iff.
ifSince the early 1990s, Bob Horan
has run repeatedly on a platform of
" legalizing marijuana, not only for
Sheriff but for state House, too. He
S still is.
HORAN
"I think we-should return to the
1937 Marijuana Tax Act," he said. "That provides a
paper trail and everyone involved has to pay a tax.
Users, growers and sellers should be making money for
the county rather than costing the county money"
through enforcement.
Horan, no party affiliation, is among five candidates
running for sheriff this year to replace Rick Roth,
who's retiring. The others are non-affiliated Sandra
Downs, in the tree-cutting business; Democratic
Sheriff's Office Capt. Bob Peryam; Republican attor-
ney Phil Mandina; and Republican retired federal drug
agent Ken Davis.
Horan, 65, said he doesn't imbibe in marijuana him-
self (anymore) and that his long-standing platform of
ignoring laws against pot is practical. Drug stings, he
says, are not.
"If I'm elected, stings will be for litterbugs and
thieves. Drug stings are doing nothing; they're preying
on addicts for the most part. I think littering is one of
the worst crimes down here," Horan said.
Much of Horan's platform extends beyond what is
within the sheriff's ability to accomplish, including
complete judicial reform.
"We should return to a justice-of-the-peace system,"
he said, noting that local courtrooms are logjammed.
"There are times it's OK to put a lawbreaker in jail,
and there's other times the individual would be better
served out among the unwashed and making money to
pay restitution," he said.
Horan calls himself a libertarian. He said the public
needs to play a bigger role in its own policing.
"The public should learn how to detain law break-
ers," he said. "Sheriff's deputies are just people, too.
Whatever training they have you could give the aver-
age Joe on the street."
In addition, he said, victims should have a say in the
sentencing of criminals, and everyone should learn
how to use a firearm.
"You should be able to protect you property with
force," he said.
And while it might be all right to use force to pro-
tect your home, he doesn't think law enforcement offi-
cers should use unwarranted force.
"I don't want deputies to use handcuffs unless
there's violence," Horan said. "A deputy putting some-
one in handcuffs is just a way to intimidate a person."
Horan lives in Marathon and works at Leigh Ann's
Coffee House as a cook. He's divorced with five chil-
dren and "several grandchildren."


Mandina focuses
race on expenses,
possible savings
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Phil Mandina is one of three candi-
dates vying for Monroe County sher-
iff who brings with him a long career
in law enforcement. The 71-year-old
Republican has 30 years under his
belt, most recently serving as a
reserve lieutenant for the Opalocka
and Sebring police departments.
He's also an attorney who says his
MANDINA private practice literally buys him
time to do community service. He's
authored several books, including a novel titled "The
Real Miami Vice," and he teaches.
He says that's why voters should elect him this year
over the other four candidates, Republican Ken Davis, a
retired federal agent; Democrat Bob Peryam, a captain
with the Sheriff's Office; and non-affiliated candidates
Bob Horan, a cook, and Sandra Downs, whose family
runs a tree-trimming business.
"I'm passionate about my law enforcement career,"
Mandina said, "and about public service. This is how I
can best serve the public as I have in the past."
Money is at the top of his pressing-issues list.
Mandina has run against the retiring Sheriff Rick Roth
three times, each time criticizing the money he's invest-
ed in aircraft for the department.
"One of the places you get money is the sale of the
[TraumaStar medical transport] helicopter and the old
aircraft, which cost $1.5 million a year to keep running,"
Mandina said. "The helicopter was supposed to pay for
itself, and it didn't. And the plane is just used to trans-
port prisoners, and it's cheaper to use a bus. Aircraft cost
a fortune just to start them."
He said selling the Sikorsky helicopter would be a
substantial one-time boost to the Sheriff's Office budget.
"You could use it to give every deputy a raise," he said.
Like most of the other candidates - and Roth himself -
he says the only way to retain deputies is to raise their pay.
"I'm used to seeing guys who've been on the force
for 20 or 30 years, and that's not happening here,"
Mandina said.
At the same time, he says, some management posi-
tions in the department pay too much, making the organ-
ization "top heavy."
Mandina thinks it's important to have some sort of
citizen oversight for the Sheriff's Office, something
along the lines of the Citizen Review Board that Key
West voters approved in November 2002.
"You have to be open to the citizens," he said. "After
all, we are here to serve and protect."
More fuel-efficient vehicles would be another way to
staunch spiraling cost, Mandina said. And working to
find ways to put deputies into affordable housing would
help them stay in the Keys. He said the department
needs to work with the U.S. Navy to put employees into
Navy housing where it's been opened up for law
enforcement in Key West.
"The other thing I'd do is in the high schools, I'd put
[Federal Emergency Management Agency] trailers," he
said. "Then you have cops on-site and you can get those
trailers for next to nothing."

Florida Trend: Oops, our bad


Magazine picks
up Keys story,
posts correction
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A leading Florida business
publication retracted a Web site
headline posted this week that
declared that most of the Keys
reef has died.
A story headlined "Majority-
of Keys Reef Is Dead, Scientists
Say" ranked as the most-read
story on the www.floridatrend
.com Web site Friday.
Florida Trend staff changed
the headline after scientists and
tourism officials challenged its
accuracy. The headline now
reads "Red Tide Hurts Keys
Reef, Scientists Say."
"The previous headline for
this article was inaccurate," a
correction notes.


- ,-, - ,


"It's very important that
news reporting is accurate,"
said Andy Newman, a market-
ing spokesman for the Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council. "When a headline on a
story like that is not accurate, it
has the potential to do damage."
SStaff with Mote Marine
Laboratory, which conducts
Keys coral studies, and
Newman contacted Florida
Trend.
The abbreviated story,
picked up from a newspaper,
centered on an ongoing research
project being conducted by
Smithsonian Institution and the
University of North Florida to
see how toxic red-tide algae
blooms affect the reef.
Concerns about the overall
heath of reef corals were noted
later in the story.
"Everyone is in agreement
that the reef is in decline,
there's not much doubt about


that," Newman said. "But it's
my impression that it's not fair
to say a majority of the reefs are
dead. I wanted to put [Florida
Trend] in touch with the
experts."
Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary staff said the
headline makes a worrisome sit-
uation sound worse than it is.
"Not everything can be sum-
marized in a sound bite,"
Sanctuary Superintendent Dave
Score said. "The underlying
truth is far more complex."
"No one is trying to down-
play the fact that corals are in
trouble worldwide," Score said.
"But to say [a majority of the
Keys reef has died] is a misrep-
resentation of what's happening
here."
The extent of the most spec-
tacular branching corals,
elkhorn and staghorn, has been
cut by more than 90 percent
throughout the Caribbean,
Score said.

County, city
work together
on evacuation
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


There are no storms on the
radar, but Keys residents, busi-
nesses and local governments are
readying for the six-month hurri-
cane season that starts in two
weeks.
Wednesday, the Monroe
County Commission is set to
approve an agreement between the
county and the city of Key West
that would provide added trans-
portation for residents and visitors
if an evacuation is called for.
Monroe County's designated
shelter is at Florida International
University. The transportation
deal would allow evacuees to
take their pets with them but the
FIU shelter doesn't allow pets.
County Emergency Management
Director Irene Toner said offi-
cials are "finalizing the sheltering
of pets at a site" on the mainland.
The added transportation serv-
ice specifically targets the area
from Key West to Marathon.
Under the agreement, the city
would pay expenses in a federal
or state-declared emergency. The
county, if the commission
approves Wednesday's proposal,
would pay $80 per hour for each
vehicle used during an evacua-
tion to make up for lost revenue
for vehicles "pulled from normal
operating routes" and if the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency doesn't reimburse the
city those costs. Generally,
FEMA reimburses local govern-
ment for the lion's share of costs
incurred in a hurricane,
The agreement, approved
unanimously by the Key West
City Commission in March, does


not specify the number of addi-
tional buses that would be put on
the road in the case of an emer-
gency.
Also on Wednesday's agenda
for the County Commission,
which meets at 9 a.m. at the
Marathon Government Center:
* Approval to purchase a
mini X-ray machine for the new
medical examiner's building on
Crawl Key, which is slated to
open at the end of June.
According to staff, the $35,000
expenditure would do away with
the "somewhat undesirable prac-
tice" of using hospital X-ray
machines during autopsies.
* A resolution showing the
commission's continued financial
support of the Keys Center for
Girls, the organization that took
the place of the PACE Center for
Girls when state funding was cut
in March. The actual dollar figure
has yet to be determined.
* An amendment to a con-
tract with Paradise Divers of Big
Pine Key. It would extend the
company's temporary ferry serv-
ice to Pigeon Key off Marathon
for an additional six months. The
old Seven Mile Bridge, which
leads to Pigeon Key, has been
deemed unsafe for vehicles by
the Florida Department of
Transportation and vehicular traf-
fie is banned.
* A discussion of additional
work required on the Murray E.
Nelson Government and Cultural
Center in Key Largo. According
to County Engineer David
Koppel, the $263,000 expense
for a number of changes to the
building will actually be a wash,
offset by cost savings accrued
early in the project.
+ Approval to delay repaving
county roads in Islamorada to
coordinate that with the installa-
tion of new water lines.

Seagrape nearly


ready to build


Permits from
water district
are last hurdle
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Carlisle Group Keys represen-
tative John Sorenson says the
Marathon City Council's unani-
mous approval Tuesday of
changes to the developer's
Seagrape affordable housing
project was "an absolute mira-
cle."
"We started the process four
and a half years ago and I've
never seen anything so difficult
in my life," Sorenson said.
An engineering mishap
required an additional building to
be constructed at the site near
mile marker 51 oceanside. It will
remain an 84-unit rental develop-
ment but the changes required
council approval.
That caused a traffic issue.
"There was a pole in our site;
we didn't have enough clearance
for entering and exiting. You
have to be able to see a certain
degree over so you don't pull out
in front of traffic there,"
Sorenson said.
The council also discussed
concerns about the danger of the
intersection near Aviation
Boulevard, saying it prefers a
traffic light at the entrance to
Seagrape. Carlisle Chief
Executive Officer Lloyd Boggio
said the state Department of
Transportation doesn't want a
light there and "won't change its
mind for a developer."
"We've never said we don't
want a light. DOT will not put a
light there," Sorenson said,
adding Carlisle would pay its fair
share for it.
Tuesday's minor conditional
use approval was just one part of
a laundry list of hang-ups that
Mayor Pete Worthington said

will not build in Monroe County
again.
"It's not worth it, 1 don't think
he will. Why should [Boggio]
waste time here when he can go
to Collier County and not have to
go through this?" Sorenson said,
adding Boggio has built some
8,000 affordable units statewide.

Seagrape was originally post-
poned one year, Sorenson said,
after a September 2005 ruling by
U.S. District Court Judge K.
Michael Moore preventing flood
insurance from being issued for
new construction on 49,000
county properties believed to
containing habitat for eight
endangered species.
The site was eventually
removed from that list.
Boggio later secured 42 build-
ing permit allocations from the

tribution to the project.
Meanwhile, Sorenson said, land
bought by Carlisle for the project
was sold to the Monroe County
Land Trust, which required
County Commission approval.
The last roadblock, according
to Sorenson, is denial of South
Florida Water Management
District permits due to "low-
quality wetlands" on the building
site. He said they were created by
rainfall after removing invasive
exotic species.
Sorenson said the Water
Management District permits are
expected to be in hand by June 29
and that the 15-month construc-
tion process would begin imme-
diately thereafter.
Seagrape will offer one-, two-
and three-bedroom apartments,
with rents based on applicants
earning 60 percent of the median
income in Monroe County.
Sorenson said the rents will like-
ly range from $700 to $900 per
month.
Some apartments will be
offered based on 30 percent of
the median income, at half the
cost.

Moratorium extension possible


Waterfront
law is up for
renewal Friday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission will consider extending a
moratorium on redeveloping
working waterfront during a spe-


cial meeting set for 10 a.m.
Friday at the Marathon
Government Center.
The moratorium is set to
expire July 9.
Since 2005, Monroe County
has been under a freeze for rede-
veloping waterfront parcels,
accepting no applications to do
so. It's aimed at giving local gov-
ernment time to come up with a


plan to preserve the county's fast-
disappearing working waterfront
and its traditional uses.
County Commissioner George
Neugent has been a driving force
to save the commercial fishing
industry. But it stalled drastically
when a Stock Island developer
changed the complexion of a pro-
posed law restricting certain uses
of the unincorporated waterfront
to build a hotel and some residen-
tial units at Safe Harbor on Stock

Island.
"It's my feeling that we will
all sit at the table now with the
[Department of Community
Affairs] and try to come up with
some sort of agreement,"
Neugent said.
He said a one-year moratori-
um extension would be enough
time for the county and local
landowners to come to some sort
of compromise, though he says
he thinks New Stock Island
Properties has a way to go before
DCA will approve its plans. DCA
questions plans to build a hotel
both because of evacuation con-
cerns and because it would vio-
late existing county law.
Though the original intent of
the legislation to protect the
waterfront - twice rejected by
DCA - was to address all of
unincorporated Monroe, it's real-
ly only come to affect Stock
Island, which is home to the only
deep-water port in the unincorpo-
rated area other than Key. West
Harbor.
"It's a countywide ordinance,
not just a Stock Island proposal,"
Neugent said. "But the frame-
work that we come up with in a
settlement agreement [with the
developer] will dictate the direc-
tion the entire effort takes."
Friday's special meeting was
called for in centrally located


Marathon because other zoning
ordinances up for consideration
affect various parts of the Keys.
All have already been approved
by the county Planning
Commission. They include:
* An amendment to the coun-
ty's comprehensive plan to
change the zoning on a Little
Torch Key parcel fronting U.S. 1
from institutional to mixed use
commercial. Properties affected
include the Jehovah's Witnesses
Kingdom Hall and Lucky's
Landing RV Park.
+ A land-plan amendment
changing the zoning of a Key
Largo parcel called Seafarer
Resort from low residential den-
sity to mixed use commercial.
* A zoning change for a Key
Largo Parcel owned by El El Si
LLC from high density residen-
tial to mixed use commercial.
* An ordinance that would
change the way that density is
calculated so more affordable
units could be built.
+ An ordinance that changes
the description of zoning for edu-
cational facilities so affordable
housing could be built on land
owned by the Monroe County
School District. That appears
aimed at Sugarloaf School, where
the School Board wants to build
teacher housing.

Keys Energy sells


Stock Island lot


Fishbusterz,
Bama Seafood
are new owners
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Fishbusterz and Bama
Seafood Products have pur-
chased Stock Island property
from Keys Energy Services to be
used for commercial fishing pur-
poses, business owner Charlie
Renier said.
The Utility Board of Key
West approved the $5.5 million
acquisition March 26 and, at its
May 14 meeting, the board
extended the businesses' closing
date until Aug. 26.
"It will be used just like it is
now," Renier said, "for commer-
cial fishing."
Fishbusterz and Bama
Seafood now lease the property
from Keys Energy.
The land is adjacent to Keys
Energy's Stock Island generat-
ing facility, utility spokesman
Julio Barroso said.
Barroso said the agency's
Land Use Committee has been
exploring a number of Keys
Energy properties in the interest
of developing a "cost/benefit
analysis for each property.
The committee developed a
bid request for the land and
Bama Seafood and Fishbusterz
were the only respondents,
Barroso said. "The proceeds
from the sale will be earmarked
for future upgrades" to Keys
Energy facilities.
Utility Board members say


Keys Energy is interested in
building a new headquarters that
would be able to withstand
strong hurricane winds.
Resident Tom Milone, who
closely monitors the Utility
Board, doesn't have an issue
with that, but does with Keys
Energy "selling valuable water-
front land."
Utility Board member Ty
Symroski recused himself from
voting on the issue because he is
working with Renier on another
Stock Island development proj-
ect.
According to meeting min-
utes, board member Peter Batty
said the Land Use Committee
"really weighed the scale of the
property and they cannot see any
future value for the utility."
The acquisition comes after
the Florida Cabinet in April
bought more than 54 acres on
Cudjoe Key from the Utility
Board as part of the Florida
Keys Ecosystem Florida Forever
Project.
That $1.9 million purchase is
part of an accelerated plan to
preserve almost 12,000 acres
along the chain of islands. More
than 6,500 acres in the project
have already been acquired for
conservation through the years.
Keys Energy, formerly City
Electric System, had owned the
parcel since 1967. The acreage
fronts Blimp Road and is bisect-
ed by an asphalt road. The
neighborhood is sparsely resi-
dential.
Barroso said Keys Energy
couldn't find a use for the land.

An Open Letter to the Men and Women of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office


It is has been 18 years since a new Sheriff has been elected and there
may be some uncertainty regarding what actions may or may not take
place with the new Sheriff. I want to make it very clear that when I am
elected Sheriff all current positions and assignments in the Sheriffs Office
are secure. While we must take steps to assure the
taxpayers of Monroe County that the Sheriffs Office
will be managed professionally, I will not bring'S *"-
anyone with me, or replace anyone in the current , P
command structure. Changes will be made if
anyone is not performing with the professionalism
and integrity the citizens deserve and expect. I '
firmly believe a leader does not bring people he can /.
trust, he earns the trust and respect of those
already in place.
Further, I will not seek, nor accept any
contributions from Sheriffs Office employees or
their spouses. No one should feel they have to
purchase preference or fear retribution for not
contributing to a campaign. Sheriffs Office
employees and the citizens of Monroe County
should be secure in the knowledge that
promotions and assignments will be based
on merit and professionalism, not K
friendship, reprisal or campaign Sh- rif
contributions. Citizens need to know that for Q Sheenrf
the Deputies protecting their homes and
businesses are being led and supervised by * Fiscal responsibility
the best people, not the largest contributors. Tough jail standards
to someone's campaign. I thank all of you
who have offered to contribute and or work * Leadership without prejudice
on our campaign, but I only seek your


support at the polls.
I have also refused to accept campaign contributions from any person
or any business who contracts, or expects to contract with the Sheriffs
Office. Taxpayers should feel secure in the-knowledge that contracts will
be given to the sources providing the best value for their tax dollar, not in
return for political or monetary favor.
Recently, I have had the pleasure of meeting with many of you. Some
of you are old friends I have worked with over the past four years, and
some of you have introduced yourselves. I look forward to meeting with
any and all of you publicly or privately to discuss the issues and hear your
ideas about how we can better serve the Sheriffs Office and the Citizens of
Monroe County.

God Bless you. 4^ ^ -

City Hall stays where it is for now


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@ keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
gave the go-ahead to continue
pursuing alternate plans, but sev-
eral council members said they
prefer City Hall right where it is
- only not in trailers.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull and
Councilman Don Vasil received
little support for their respective
plans at Tuesday's regular meet-
ing, with Bull proposing a plan
to acquire the former Marathon
Manor site and Vasil suggesting
City Hall be moved to the new
fire station at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
Bull's plan, while prelimi-


nary, estimates a $9 million price'
tag to purchase the 40,000
square-foot former convalescent
center on Sombrero Beach Road
from the Monroe County School
Board. That includes a complete
gutting of the inside for $5 mil-
lion and would involve turning
over a portion of land to the
School Board for expansion of
the adjacent Marathon Middle
and High School campus.
Bull's plan called for making
one wing of the first floor City
Hall and either converting the
other to affordable housing or
renting it as office space. The top
floor would be all affordable


one- and two-bedroom units.
Bull anticipated at $175,000 per
unit, the city would make $5.4
million back.
The School Board purchased
the property for $7.4 million in
2005 and has been in talks with
the city since a proposed deal
with Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas fell through in April
2007.
The council thanked Bull for
the time he invested in the proj-
ect but most said they feel the
expenditure would be too large.
"I have to be honest with you,
it would have to be something
special to get me to support put-
ting our City Hall down there.
I'm happy with the events field


[at 98th Street]. I think we're
going to be able to put a city hall
there in a short time,"
Councilman Mike Cinque said.
"The property on 98th looks
attractive when you start looking
at the price tag on this," Mayor
Pete Worthington said.
City Hall is sited in trailers at
the events field between 98th
and 99th streets.
Vasil's plan to move City Hall
to the fire station also met with
opposition from fellow council
members. A resolution calling
for a feasibility study to make
the-move was approved with the
condition only certain depart-
ments would be housed there.
"I'm not enthusiastic about


turning it on its head to accom-
modate everything we do. I
don't have a problem with staff
making an honest assessment,
but I would not favor the entire
City Hall being at the fire
house," Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said.
Vasil, always looking to cut
costs, said his plan would save
taxpayers money.
"We spent too much money
on [the fire station.] It's a totally
underutilized facility and it costs
too much to run. I cannot sup-
port spending money anywhere
in town on capital projects until
we efficiently utilize the space in
the fire house," Vasil said.


I wrote the definitive

"guide to the Keys"

and now I needed

local knowledge.
lu'e Ae.i. A io


"I needed to find an
excellent cosmetic dentist
in the Keys. No problem.
Knowing where things are
around here is my business f.
because I wrote "June Keith's
Key West & The Florida Keys".
A toboggan accident in
Canada chipped my front teeth,
and my research told me to
go see Dr. Troxel. When he
examined my condition. he
smiled confidently, and I
laughed inside because
I knew I had found the
best. Thanks to good
local knowledge"
I'm the one who's
always smiling now.

Puto's SUV not going anywhere


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Mike Puto is no longer
Marathon's city manager, but his
Ford Expedition is sticking
around.
The Marathon City Council
on Tuesday voted down a motion
by Councilman Don Vasil to
declare the sport utility vehicle
surplus and sell it to the highest
bidder. Vasil cited a recent report
to the council from the Green
Team, an informal advisory panel
on environmental issues, that

calls for the use of hybrid cars.
"If the new manager says we
need a replacement, we should
get one a little more fuel-efficient
and in line with the Green Team,"
Vasil said.
The rest of council said it
prefers cars be replaced over
time.
"It just doesn't work for me. I
think it's a little too wasteful.
Hybrids deserve a place in our
fleet, but I think we should do it
by attrition," Tempest said.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
the- SUV was specially outfitted
and that with soaring gas prices,
the city would not see a proper
return getting rid of it.
"It was customized to have
emergency radios in there in the
event of a disaster," Bull said,
saying the city might receive just
$10,000 for it on the open market.
"To get rid of this one at this
point, there's not a whole lot of
value to a gas-guzzling SUV
right now," Mayor ,Pete
Worthington said.
Green Team Chairman'
Michael Welber urged new City
Manager Clyde Burnett to empty
out the SUV and drive it only
when necessary, pointing out its
poor gas mileage.
"As a backup, I'd like to see
an arrangement that the city man-
ager use one of the other vehicles.
It would be great if staff used the
highest gas mileage car avail-
able," Welber said.
The council also took the fol-
lowing actions:


* Approved a resolution for
the city to acquire the Little
Venice sewer plant from the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority.
On Feb. 12, the council passed
a resolution declaring its intent to
purchase the plant ard directed
staff to negotiate the purchase. Ed
Castle of Weiler Engineering, the
city's wastewater engineer, told
the council the plant was inspect-
ed and is 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.
* Approved 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-sta-
tion equipment to use with it.
+ Approved 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.
* Appointed Claude Halioua
to the Planning Commission and
Rich Jones to the Near Shore
Waters Committee.

Alleged Boy Scout abuser bonds out


She tried to
negotiate bail
before arrest
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

A Massachusetts woman
accused of having sex with a 15-
year-old Boy Scout last summer
during a scouting sailboat trip in
the Keys is free on bail.
Caroline Corbett, 23, of
Hingham, Mass., was released
from the Monroe County
Detention Center May 9 after
posting the required $7,500 of
her $75,000 bail, according to
Deputy Becky Herrin, Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman.
She is accused of having sex
with a Georgia Boy Scout while
his troop was traveling on the
sailboat Heritage of Miami.
Corbett was first mate.
The 18-scout troop sailed on
the boat in June 2007, sleeping
aboard for a week, on a trip out
of the National Council of the
Boy Scouts' Florida Sea Base in
Islamorada.
The alleged victim's mother


called the
Sheriff 's
Office from
their Georgia
. . home after she
intercepted a
letter he was
trying to send
' - Corbett in
Massachusetts,
CORBETT according to
Corbett's lawyer, Hal
Schuhmacher. Herrin said last
year that the boy's mother also
found letters from Corbett to her
son telling him she missed him
and referring to their alleged
encounters.
After almost a year of corre-
spondence between Keys law
enforcement officials and
Corbett's attorneys, she was only
recently forced to face charges in
Monroe County - and she did
not turn herself in.
Corbett' recently spent six
weeks in jail after being arrested
March 27 at a Rhode Island air-
port when a Transportation
Security Administration check
revealed she had a warrant in the
Keys for lewd and lascivious


Toppino is let go


College VP's
contract
not renewed
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A contract that's been active
for 21 years will come to an end
June 30 for Sharon Toppino,
Florida Keys Community
College's vice president of stu-
dent affairs.
It marks the eighth non-
renewed contract this school
year.
One of the college's admin-
istrators, she started at the
school in 1987 in counseling
services, where she stayed for
15 years. She was promoted
under then-President Bill
Seeker to oversee the Student
Affairs Department, which last-
ed six years.
Current college President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle this week
notified Toppino her contract
would not be renewed.


Toppino says one thing is
certain: She's staying in the
Keys.
"I was raised here," Toppino
said. "I'm not going anywhere."
She started in the workforce
in the 1970s as a high school
teacher in Pinellas County in
west Florida.
Humanities and photography
instructor Lynn Bentley-
Kemp's contract was denied
renewal at the April 28 college
Board of Trustees meeting.
"This has been the most dis-
couraging year of my entire
professional life, all 28 years of
it," Bentley-Kemp wrote in an
exit statement.
Computer-science instructor
Sam Hijazi recently resigned
and said he'll be moving out of
the Keys to Texas.
Landesberg-Boyle has said
she's excited about the heavy
stream of applications coming
into to fill open positions and
new college initiatives that will
increase enrollment.


battery on a person between ages
12 and 16.
"This was not a 'turn-herself-
in' situation," said Manny
Madruga, the Keys assistant
state attorney prosecuting the
case. "She was arrested on the
warrant."
Madruga said the case .has
been frustrating since the
Sheriff's Office issued her arrest
warrant last fall, and she had
only recently been sent to jail
here.
. The original warrant was
issued Sept. 24. Police in
Hingham arrested Corbett, but a
Massachusetts judge let her go,
saying the warrant presented
insufficient evidence she was a
fugitive.
"This was really unusual.
Most states will honor probable-
cause warrants from another
state," Madruga said.
But the warrant was not inac-
tive just because she was
released from jail in
Massachusetts.
Madruga said he was in cor-
respondence with her two attor-
neys - one a Massachusetts
lawyer and one in Palm Beach
- about getting Corbett to turn
herself in. Her lawyers told
Madruga she would turn herself
in if the bond - originally set at

$150,000 - was reduced.
"I said, 'If she turns herself
in, we'll talk about bond.' It's
not good practice to negotiate
bond with a fugitive," Madruga
said.
Local defense attorney
Schuhmacher inherited the case
about two weeks ago. He called
the bond amount "insanely
high," noting there is no bond
schedule in Monroe County. He
also said bonds are typically set
high because the person is either
a flight risk .or a danger to the
alleged victim. Schuhmacher
said since the boy was reported-
ly trying to contact Corbett, he


I--------- -


likely wasn't afraid of her.
"There's no indication the
quote, unquote, victim is in
fear," Schuhmacher said.
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Mark Jones reduced
Corbett's bond to $75,000 at her
May 8 arraignment, Schuhmacher
said.
Corbett's next court date is
scheduled for July 2, with a trial
date set for July 14,
Schuhmacher said. The July 2
date is a docket signing, when it
is decided to either continue the
case, make a plea or go to trial. If
the case is continued, then the
July 14 trial date is pushed back.

A Key West man is facing
several felonies following his
arrest Thursday for allegedly


growing marijuana.
Police say they conducted a
"knock and talk investigation" at
1213 Truman Ave. after several
Crime Stoppers tips were called
in about Thomas Picht, 47,
allegedly growing and selling
pot.
A search of the house
revealed four marijuana plants
in various stages of growth that
weighed a combined 107 grams,
drug paraphernalia, drug para-
phernalia and a high-caliber rifle
bullet, police said.
Picht is charged with posses-
sion/cultivation of marijuana,
possession of drug paraphernalia
and being a felon in possession
of firearm, ammunition or elec-
tric weapons. Bond was set at
$102,500 dollars.

Commission eyes beach


Commissions
considering
ballot question
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday will
discuss an ordinance .that
would give Key West voters
the chance to decide whether
their city should acquire Higgs
Beach from Monroe County.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
first introduced the idea in
August in attempt to give the
city a chance to clean up the
area and lease it to nonprofits
The homeless are known to
frequent the beach along
Atlantic Boulevard, and some
residents claim they're been
harassed by vagrants in the
area.
McPherson still hopes to
get the beach from the county
and lease it to nonprofits such
as the Boys and Girls Club and
the Police Athletic League.
Those organizations could
oversee the land, and have the
authority to enact trespassing
regulations to rid the property
of aggressive vagrants.
The beach is 712,641
square feet, with a dog park,


playground and Italian restau-
rant. The acquisition would
come with no fee to the city,
the ordinance says.
The issue must go before
the voters because of the vot-
ers themselves. In November
2007, they overwhelming
approved a referendum that
required all city land acquisi-
tion and annexations be
approved by voters.
"The secretary of the
Interior has already written a
letter saying the federal gov-
ernment approves it," City
Attorney Shawif Smith said.
The county would be
required to complete work on
the dock, and beach rest-
rooms.
City Commissioner Barry
Gibson said there are some
important questions about the
proposed purchase.
"How much will the city
incur by taking this over?" he
asked. "We're going to proba-
bly hold the county responsi-
ble for bringing up to code."
Even though it's a county
primary, the city's proposed
acquisition could appear on
the Aug. 26 ballot, Monroe
County Supervisor of
Elections Harry Sawyer said.
Candidate qualifying ends at


noon June 20.
Also on the agenda for the
City Commission, which
meets at 6 p.m. at Old City
Hall on Greene St.:
+ Accepting a ranking of
proposals for a Federal
Emergency Management
Agency coordinator and nego-
tiating a contract with Scott
Fraser not to exceed $60,000.
Fraser said he scored the
highest among applicants and
says his position pays for
itself with the federal funds
he's been able to rake in for
the city.
"My job is not only getting
validation for repairs but also
getting money, Fraser said.
* Extending interlocal
agreements to sink the USS
Hoyt Vandenberg off Key
West as an artificial reef. The
520-foot former military ves-
sel was planned for sinking
this month but cost overruns
have forced that to December.
+ The second reading of an
ordinance to allow residents
living within 40 feet of a com-
mercial structure to file distur-
bance complaints.
* City commissioners will
address Bill Grosscup's
request to rebuild his home at
13 Hilton Haven Dr. The
home he wants to build would
sit on pilings over the water.

Agency retracts alcohol statements


It incorrectly

By DAVID HAWKINS

Keys boaters don't have to
worry about getting arrested just
for having a beer on board.
"There is no open-container
law on a vessel," said Bobby
Dube, an officer with state's on-
water law enforcement agency,

person steering a boat to imbibe.
But last week, Monroe
County Sheriff's Office officials
seemed to announce that drinks,
even in the hands of passengers,
are illegal on boats.
This week, they admitted
they were wrong.
A lawyer and a spokeswoman
for the agency both said they
made mistakes in telling people
open containers of alcohol were
illegal on boats anywhere
around the Keys.
"I apologize for contributing
to any confusion," General
Counsel Mark Willis wrote in an
e-mail to The Reporter.
/ He corrected information he
gave last week about the coun-
ty's open-container law. "It cer-
tainly would not apply on the
open water," he wrote.
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Deputy Becky Herrin
also took back statements she
made about the open-container
law, and said she was sorry she
had given out incorrect informa-
tion.

. ublished.Keynoter 05/17/08


A small controversy over
having alcohol on boats started
brewing because of a statement
the Sheriff's Office issued
Tuesday.
A prepared statement about
plans for the annual Hospitality
Expo in Islamorada said Monroe
County's open-container law
applies even to boats on waters
in county jurisdiction. It also
said open containers of alcohol
are illegal "on a public street, in
a car or on the water."
Only a few people seemed to
notice what could have been a
big surprise for Keys boaters.
The statement prompted
questions to officials and attor-


neys, and ultimately the correc-
tion from the Sheriff's Office.
For the record, the 'county's
open container law prohibits
alcohol in vehicles and in public
places. To break the law in a
boat, you'd have to be drinking
at a public boat ramp or parking
lot, Willis said.
But while it is legal, officials
and boating experts agree that
drinking by a boat's operator can
be very dangerous. And boating,
same as driving a car, while
intoxicated is illegal.
Dewey Jackson, division vice
Captain of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary in the Keys, said he
tells students in boating safety


classes that alcohol has a three
times stronger effect on water.
Drinking impairs judgment
and reduces reflexes much more
quickly. Because of stress fac-
tors on the water, "one drink is
equal to about three," Jackson
said.
Information on boating acci-
dents shows that alcohol plays a
significant part, Jackson said.
Citing figures from a recent
report, he said about one-third of
vessel accidents in 2007 in
Florida involved alcohol.
Alcohol or drugs were involved
in 22 percent of accidents in
which someone died.


Panel examines pollution


Stormwater
runoff, ships
cited as causes
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com"

Reef Relief, a nonprofit
organization dedicated to pro-
tecting coral, is pushing regula-
tions that would require the no-.
sewage-discharge zone for
cruise ships within the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary
to be pushed out to federal
waters, about 8 miles from Key
West.
The initiative was announced
during an educational panel dis-
cussion Wednesday that enter-
tained nearly 100 people at the
Florida Keys Eco-Discovery
Center at Key West's Truman
Waterfront.
Reef Relief Educational


Coordinator Mike McCleary
said more cruise ships are dump-
ing off Key West than anywhere
else in the country. He joined an
expert panel in speculating on
the reasons for nearshore water
pollution around the island.
But all panel members,
including Assistant City
Manager David Fernandez, said
studies show stormwater runoff
is the most prominent reason for
polluted waters
The Health Department often
puts out health advisories against
swimming the island's beaches
because of high fecal contamina-
tion and other toxins that are dis-
covered through testing. The
panel suggested picking up after
dogs while walking them, avoid-
ing fertilizing lawns and keeping
oil from dripping out of your car
and onto the pavement.
According to McCleary,

Fuel spill shuts
Flamingo station

If you're headed to Flamingo
in Everglades National Park this
summer, don't forget to fill your
gas tank before heading there in
either your car or boat.
Park Superintendent Dan
Kimball says the park has closed
its gas fueling at Flamingo due to
a recent spill that happened dur-
ing a scheduled delivery by a dis-


tribution company. About half
the 25 gallons spilled was recov-
ered.
During the course of remov-
ing the fuel-contaminated soil,
evidence of previous contamina-
tion was discovered. Until the
contamination is removed and
mitigation measures are in place
to prevent future spills, the park
has discontinued fuel deliveries.
Diesel fuel will continue to be
available until the current sup-
'lies are exhausted.


cruise ships don't help the prob-
lem by dumping about 30,000
gallons of human waste a day
per ship.
Port Director Raymond
Archer said if a cruise ship were
to dump, the agreement with the
city is to do it 12 miles from the
coast rather than the mandatory
3 miles.
Higgs and South beaches
often reveal harmful levels of
fecal-based bacteria, but Fort
Zachary Taylor State Park does-
n't. Some attending Wednesday
asked why.
"We don't have any stormwa-
ter outfalls there," Fernandez
said.
But Key West has come a
long way from when sewage
used to leak out into nearshore
waters, Fernandez said.
"The sewage system you
have today is award-winning, lit-
erally," he said, adding that grav-
ity injection wells are used to
keep sewage away from outfalls.
Archer told the Keynoter that
Key Westers can make a differ-
ence by keeping their lawns
clean. He also said claims cruise-
ship dumping is the real source
of pollution are overblown.
"Getting hung up on cruise
ships keeps people from solving
the problem," Archer said.
Utility Board member Ty
Symroski asked about toxins in
sediment that rest in the ocean
floor of the Key West Bight and
other sea-bottom areas. Recent
approval of a 10-year lease
between the city and state will
allow for that sediment to be
e'eaned out.

Required recycling?


Johnston plans
to introduce
proposed law
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Following the lead of environ-
mentally mindful cities, leaders
in Key West are exploring the
feasibility of imposing regula-
tions that would require residents
to recycle.
Commissioner Teri Johnston
will sponsor an ordinance to
enforce tighter recycling require-
ments that would mirror the poli-
cies of cities such as Gainesville
and San Francisco.
"We've educated people on
what's recyclable," Johnston
said. "And hopefully people
know the recyclables are sorted at
the right site."
A common myth on the island
is that recyclables are transferred
to the same Broward County
dump as garbage. Johnston said
Waste Management Inc. tosses
all of the contents into yellow
dump trucks, separate, from
garbage trucks. The recyclables
then go to Stock Island.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
says the ordinance's language is


under review by the city's legal
department.
But it will require talking with
other cities that have already
implemented successful plans.
Gainesville passed an ordi-
nance in 1997 that monitors resi-
dents' recycling rates, spokesman
Dekova Batey said. Residents are
required to recycle unless "their
recyclables are less than 15 per-
cent of their entire waste stream.
"If someone is in violation,
they can be brought in front of
the Code Enforcement Board,"
Batey said. "They also can be
given a civil citation."
It's requested that businesses
recycle cardboard and white
office paper and apartment com-
plexes recycle newspapers, glass
and aluminum cans, he said.
That city also conducts on-site
inspections to ensure businesses
and multi-family complexes are
following the green rules, Batey
said.
For Gainesville, the residen-
tial recycling rate is about 31 per-
cent, while the commercial rate is
about 12.5 percent. San
Francisco boasts a 70 percent
recycling rate.
Key West residents recycle 7.4
percent of their garbage. A


barometer Horace O'Bryant
Middle School students placed in
Bayview Park will measure the
island's recycling trend.
The preliminary draft of the
ordinance would require resi-
dents to recycle but not business-
es, Green Living and Energy
Education Vice President Jody
Smith Williams said.
"It would require that resi-
dents recycle all paper, bottles,
plastics and cardboard," Smith
Williams said. "It would also
include all of the multi-family
units as well. The enforcement
would be incumbent upon the
manager of the facility."
Johnston said she understands
the difficulty in convincing busi-
nesses to recycle, though some in
Key West do, including
Finnegan's Wake, Margaritaville,
Fast Buck Freddie's and the
Hog's Breath Saloon.
Smith Williams said if the law
is passed, a grace period of six
months would first be imple-
mented, with warnings issued
before fines.
"The recommendation is $25
fines," she said.
Key Westers can pick up recy-
cling bins at Public Works at 633
Palm Ave. or call 296-8297 for
free delivery to their home.
Businesses can call 797-3312.

Board member slams budget talks


Griffiths says
minutia wastes
valuable time
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

A long-time Monroe County
School Board member says some
of his colleagues are wasting time
at budget meetings by trying to
micromanage the School
District's daily operations.
"When a board member asks
who and how, those questions are
easily answered and don't change
strategy direction. When they ask


what and why, those are not easy
to answer, dealing with value and
philosophy, and can lead to a
change in policy," board member
Andy Griffiths told The Reporter.
Other members ask "how much
are we going to save using this
kind of grass, that kind of grass,
and it's answered and it doesn't
change [a thing]. And we spend
hours on this" issue.
Griffiths was referring to
Tuesday's board workshop at
Coral Shores High School. At the
session, the board considered
ways to trim expenses.
"We've got no money," board


member John Dick said after the
meeting. "We still need to do
more cutbacks at the district."
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo says rumors about dras-
tic cuts at the school level are
overblown. The administration he
oversees is making sacrifices to
spare teachers' jobs, he said.
The, issue of administrators
retiring early, then returning to
their posts and earning pensions
and income, was part of closed-
door discussions, Dick said.
"I don't want people to think
we're ignoring this," he said.
"But I can't say anything about
what happens" in executive ses-
sion.


The board also considered the
future of Glynn Archer
Elementary School and Horace
O'Bryant Middle School in Key
West. Discussions centered on
plans to either renovate the old
elementary school or place a new
building on the larger middle-
school site.
Griffiths said the School
Board indicated -favor toward
renovation, a plan he thinks will
waste district money. Combining
the schools onto a single campus
could save in administrative
costs, he said.
"I just can't see how you have
an argument against it," he said.
"Why are we rebuilding an old
school that's non-[American with
Disabilities Act]-compliant and
has no green space?"
Dick said he was with the
majority against the combination,
not wanting to mix the students


on a cramped property.
The board considered other
contentious issues, including
other cost-cutting measures.
"This is a very important time
to talk specifics," said Duncan
Mathewson, the board member
representing Big Pine Key and
nearby areas. "The public has
entrusted us to look after the peo-
ple's money and we need to get
the biggest bang for our bucks."
Mathewson said the board was
able to create a travel restriction
policy that satisfied the board and
administration. School Board
officials will now approve
planned trips.
Also at the meeting,
Mathewson said the School
Board will retain the law firm
Vernis & Bowling for. now but
might seek other counsel when
the firm's contract is up in the
fall.

Gibson takes on

Duval windows, again


This time,
it's the size

By KYLE TEAL
kteal @ keynoter.com

Key West City Commissioner
Barry Gibson, the new Duval
Street watchdog, is bringing up
more contentious issues about
windows on the busy commercial
strip.
The commissioner, best
known for his fight to clean up
offensive language and products
displayed in windows ' along
Duval, is now focusing pn the
size of windows.

Businesses such as the
Southern Cross Hotel and Nine
West shoe store have full-length
windows, usually secured with
metal frames.
"It doesn't fit in with the fla-
vor of what we want to display in
the historic district," Gibson said.
"It looks like you're in a mall
anywhere in America."
Gibson raised the issue at the
May 6 City Commission meeting
and said he received calls from
residents who agree the windows
are an eyesore.
Gibson said he is working
with the Historical Architectural
Review Commission to draft a
city ordinance that would place
restrictions on the size of win-
dows.
"We don't want to get away
from the flavor of Key West," he
said.
Gibson, who owns a sunglass-
es shop on Duval, holds regular
meetings with other business
owners to ensure the city has a
good working relationship with
its commercial artery.
To make the street more fami-
ly-friendly, he's recently urged
business owners to remove T-
shirts with offensive sayings on
them away from the windows.

Sidewalks could


prove intrusive ,


Flagler plan
raises issue
of encroachment
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Some Key Westers' fences
and landscaping on Flagler
Avenue are likely impeding on
city property lines, city officials
say.
A proposed sidewalk to run
alongside the major street has
prompted that realization. City
officials don't want a zigzagging
sidewalk, and they'd rather not
tell residents their fences and
trees must go.
But legally, they have the
right.
City Commissioner Barry
Gibson, whose district includes
part of the avenue, said he does-
n't want to see a royal poinciana
and a sandbox tree get cut down
to make way for the sidewalk.
"I want to corhe to a compro-
mise," Gibson said. "Flagler is a
very dangerous road and the
sidewalks need to be there.... But
ultimately we could end up in a
lawsuit."
City Attorney Shawn Smith
told the Keynoter if a resident
protests . a sidewalk cutting
through his or her yard but the
yard is actually on city land, a
lawsuit from the resident would
be fruitless.
"I think the city is just trying
to be a good neighbor," Smith
said. "I suspect there are areas

City Engineer Roland

how much a homeowners' prop-

"If it's 6 or 12 inches, that's

work around," Flowers said.
"But if it's a few feet, that could
be an issue."

Time to get nekked again


Musical revue
bares it all
at Waterfront
Naked Boys Singing!"
returns to the Waterfront
Playhouse in Key West
Wednesday night.
The musical revue was first
staged two years ago this year
will run until June 14. This is not
for the kids though: The show
has nudity and adult comedy.
The production features a
new cast and will include one of
Key West's homegrown stars,
Spencer Gates, who has been
performing in the Off-Broadway
production the past year and is
returning to Key West for this
production.
The cast also includes Mr.
Gates, Vash Bodde, Jay
Krottinger, Michael Munoz,


Ruben Navarro and Eric Potter.
The features 16 original
songs that are by turns funny,
poignant and theatrical; it just
happens that the cast is naked.
Twelve writers have con-
tributed songs: Stephen Bates,
Marie Cain, Perry Hart, Shelly
Markham, Jim Morgan, David
Pevsner, Rayme Sciaroni, Mark
Savage, Ben Schaechter, Trance
Thompson, Mark Winkler and
two-time Emmy Award winner
Bruce Vilanch.
The show opens with
"Gratuitous Nudity," in which
the cast throws caution and cos-
tumes to the wind and never
looks back. Other numbers
include "Naked Maid," "Robert
Mitchum," "Nothin' But The
Radio On" and "Perky Little
Porn Star."
Robert Schrock, the creator


and original director of "Naked
Boys Singing!;" returns to direct
and choreograph the Waterfront
production. The producer is
Adam Weinstock and musical
director is Michael Fauss.
Opening night will feature a
post-performance meet-the-cast
party in the sculpture garden in
front of the Mallory Square the-
ater with catering by Great
Events. The final week of per-


formances has been scheduled to
coincide with this year's Pride
Fest and is part of the official
lineup.
Tickets are $35 and available
through the Waterfront box
office at 294-5015 or online at
www.waterfrontplayhouse
.com. Call for group rates. The
show runs Tuesdays through
Saturday with curtain at
8:30 p.m.


Slate building to

Dunleavy species
mural to wrap
around 3 sides
A another marine-life wall is
coming to the Keys.
Artist David Dunleavy
of Cape May, N.J., plans to start
painting a mural focusing on
endangered species to raise pub-
lic awareness of the importance
of the Florida Keys reef ecosys-
tem Thursday at Captain Slate's
Atlantis Dive Center mile mark-

Dunleavy plans to complete
the mural in 10 days and the
public is invited to watch it

develop daily.
"This will be my 54th endan-
gered-species mural, and I have
completed 53 projects in 15
years," Dunleavy said. "The wall
has excellent exposure and I'm
extra energized to dive in.and
start painting."
The mural will showcase the
Christ of the Abyss statue off
Key Largo, the living coral reef
and colorful marine life indige-
nous to Key largo. It's going to
wrap around three sides of the
building.
The Keys reef is the only liv-
ing coral barrier reef in North
America. It runs about 221 miles
from Key Biscayne to the Dry
Tortugas and is one of the most
accessible wildlife areas in the
country.
Dunleavy's murals can be
seen in the U.S., the Bahamas,
Australia and, in the Keys on the
History of Diving Museum in
Islamorada. Like Dunleavy's
previous walls, the Key Largo
mural is designed to increase
global awareness and steward-
ship, mainly in children.

'Rompers' is a rollicking time


The big cast
nails the skits
with perfection
The Red Barn Theatre
closes its 2007-08 season
with "Rompers," two
short weeks of short plays. And
one week is already gone.
They promote is as celebrat-
ing short-attention-span theater.
The action gets so quick during
Jules Feiffer's "People" that it's
like sitting at a railroad crossing
watching a passenger train full
of manic travelers streaming
past.
The evening's menu consists
of three plays and selections
from Feiffer's "People" in the
first act, and four more shorts in
the second act. We're talking
10-minute theater bytes.
The cast of 13 includes sev-
eral new faces that I am sure we
will see more of and several'
"old" faces we'll never see
enough of.
The Feiffer bits were remi-
niscent of Rowan and Martin's
"Laugh-In," the rapid-fire com-
edy sketch show in the 1960s
and early '70s. Some of you
may be too young to remember
this classic, but it was a turning


modem
comedy
and Tom
.- Murtha

Sthe Feiffer
selections
with the
same ener-
gy. Ruth
. Buzzi,
where are
Judi Bradford you?
Quincy
Perkins, Ross Pipkin, Jessica
Steele and Joy Jama rode in on
waves of laughter one after
another through the straight-shot
character assassinations.
Carole MacCartee shone in
several areas. She was a scene-
stealer as the suck-up secretary
in "Let's Be Frank" by Caroline
Williams, directed by Vanessa
McCaffrey.
She was a frowsy housefrau
to Joe DeLuca's frumpy grump
in "Libations," a Michael
Marrero script that won the
One Night Stand competition, a
Red Barn/The Studios of Key
West collaboration last summer.
"Libations" was a clever har-
mony between the comic old
codgers and a frisky beverage
commentary masterfully pre-


brief


Library screens
Day-Lewis movie

A free screening of "There
Will Be Blood," a Daniel Day-
Lewis film about family, greed
and religion at the turn of the
19th Century, is planned for
3:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Key
West library, 700 Fleming St.

Hurricane party
benefits Habitat

Habitat for Humanity of
Key West and the Lower
Florida Keys has a new event:
Cancel Hurricane Season
Party.
Appropriately, it's May 31,
the day before the six-month
storm season starts, from 4 to
10 p.m. at Bobalu's on U.S. 1
on Big Coppitt Key. There will
be a dolphin fish fry with cole
slaw, corn on the cob and


French fries for $12 per person
($6 for kids 10 and under).
There will be a cash bar and
music by Gary and Kerrie and
Coconut Thunder. Proceeds go
to Habitat.


sented in Penn & Teller style
by Kristin Wilson and Phil
Tabb. Direction by Doug
Shook kept the laughs coming. I
am not sure who coordinated the
fashions on this one, but they
deserve a star on their chart.
A truly hilarious rocking-
chair dialogue, "I'm Herbert,"
between MacCartee and Bob
Smith was a pinnacle romp
through memory deficit disor-
der. How they remembered the
lines or found their cues is a
mystery.
The entertainment deck was
stacked with jokers, but two
more sober pieces anchored the
evening: "What Are You Afraid
Of" explored fear of commit-
ment; "Untitled" looked at the
effects of stage performance
itself.
"Rompers" continues through
May 24. Curtain is at 8 p.m. at
the Red Barn Theatre, 319
Duval St., Key West. Tickets are
$30. Call the box office at 296-
9911.

Shanna Key
Steve Allerton and Gary
Zimmerman continue the old
Irish tradition begun this year by
accordionist Terry Conti at
Shanna Key, which calls itself
"the southernmost Irish pub in
Key West," at 1900 Flagler
Ave., at Bertha Street.
Sunday nights drew Irish
music fans and players to the
pub for rollicking and lyrical
tunes. Conti has left for a sum-
mer elsewhere, but the tradition-
al Irish music sessions
continue. "Guest musicians
are welcome," fiddler
Zimmerman says.

Keys Energy Services is
working on implementing a new
technology that it says will
improve customers' ability to do
business conveniently and quick-
ly via telephone.
- The Telelink telephone-call

Using the outage reporting
system, customers can report an
outage; confirm the outage loca-
tion; receive available infonna-


tion on the outage and efforts to
restore service; provide informa-
tion on what may have caused the
outage; and request a call back
when the power is back on to ver-
ify electric service has been
restored.
The new telephone system
will also permit customers to
inquire about and pay their ener-

Diving with 'real heroes'


Wounded soldiers' Keys scuba trip
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Florida Keys waters and hos-
pitality this week again provide
an aquatic respite for wounded
soldiers.
Eight severely injured service
members from Walter Reed
Army Medical Center are-sched-
uled arrive in Tavernier today to
begin a week of scuba diving and
relaxation.
Two other veterans in the
Soldiers Undertaking Disabled
Scuba program at Walter Reed
are traveling separately, coordi-
nator John- Thompson said.
"Most of these guys have been
rehabilitating for 18 months or
longer," Thompson said.
"They've endured ridiculous
amounts of surgery, in some
cases 30 or 40 procedures.
"Coming down to the Keys
gives them an opportunity to get
out and away from the hospital
environment and participate in an
activity that a.lot of them never
thought possible," he said.
Conch Republic Divers in
Tavernier provides diving sup-
port for the group. Noted under-
water explorer and journalist
John Chatterton recruited owners
Gary and Brenda Mace for the
project, and will join them in the
Keys this week.
"John's been working with the
Wounded Warriors [Disabled
Sports Project] and asked if we
would get involved," Gary Mace
said. "Absolutely. We support our
men and women serving over-
seas. If we can help acclimate
those coming back with injuries,
well, we're all over that."
The soldiers have completed
their diving academic study and
pool training. They'll board
Conch Republic boats Sunday
and Monday to complete their
certification training as open-
water divers.
"The great thing about the
Upper Keys for this type of activ-
ity is that we have so many good
open-water areas for training,
like Conch Reef and Davis,"
Mace said. "There are sandy
areas we need, but just a short
swim away are reefs filled with
fish life.
"After we finish the skills

work, we'll give them a great
experience looking at what God
can do when he decides to show
off."
On Tuesday, Thursday and
Friday, Conch Republic has open
dives with the soldiers. Spots on
the boat trips are available for
divers who want to meet and
mingle with the soldiers.
"How often do you get to go
diving with real heroes?" Mace
said.
Ocean Pointe Suites donated
use of two vacation condomini-
ums for the soldiers, and
Adventure Scuba of Virginia con-
tributed use of its two units at the
complex.
Cafe Largo, the Island Grill,
the Tavernier Elks Lodge and
The Fish House all will host din-
ners for the troops, and Island

has been fantastic," Mace said.
Scuba diving has become a
favored post-injury pursuit for
many veterans of Iraq and
Afghanistan. At least two other
veterans groups have visited the
Upper Keys this year.
"Diving is a sport they can do
for life," said Thompson, who
works with the Soldiers Under-


taking Disabled Scuba organiza-
tion based at Walter Reed. "It can
open a lot of doors for them."
Said Mace, "We're in the
memory business. That means
we enjoy seeing people have a
good time. It's all about giving
something back."

CPR-a-Thon coming to Marathon


Tranquility Bay
hosting event
for Red Cross

Although you must be certi-
fied in cardiopulmonary resus-
citation to become a U.S. Coast
Guard-licensed charter captain,
it's easy to forget that you must
re-certify periodically to remain
current.
Considering how many times
eachyear the Keys media report
stories of medical emergencies


occurring on dive and fishing
charters, it's a good idea to stay
current and mentally review
CPR procedures as you prepare
your boat, crew and guests to
leave the dock.
If you've let your CPR skills
lapse and want to re-certify,
bringing your emergency med-
ical knowledge and skills up to
date, the American Red Cross
has what it calls a CPR-a-Thon
at the Tranquility Bay Resort in
Marathon May 31.


And it's not just for captains.
Iiidividuals, companies and
groups - anyone - can partic-
ipate.
CPR training takes just four
hours; the session starts at 9
a.m. and costs $45 per person.
Call in advance to pre-pay and
register. The number is 296-
4033.
If you want to take or retake
CPR training but can't attend
May 31, call the above number
for other local training dates
and locations.

Grand Prix runs Sunday


Iwo dozen
boats expected
to participate
The uniqueness and exhilara-
tion of navigating under the old
and new Seven Mile bridges in
the Florida Keys are prime
draws for powerboat racers and
spectators at the Marathon Super
Boat Grand Prix, set to begin at
1 p.m. Sunday.
The race course passes
beneath the old Seven Mile
Bridge and the contemporary
Seven Mile Bridge, the center-
piece of the Overseas Highway.
Running 6.5 miles per lap,
the course starts in Florida Bay
and proceeds westward to the
first checkpoint. Racers make a
90-degree left turn to head to the
Atlantic Ocean, passing between
the new and old Seven Mile
bridges' concrete foundations.
Two more hard left turns point
racers back to the bay side, again
speeding through the narrow
pass between the bridges' con-
crete foundations. A right turn in


the bay takes racers across the
finish line to a hairpin left turn
that completes each lap.
The largest boats are expect-
ed to navigate slightly less then
12 laps for a total course length
of 76 miles.
Event director John
Carbonell anticipates about 20
to 25 boats to compete in the
third nationally sanctioned event
of the 2008 Super 'Boat
International offshore racing
season.
Spectators can view race
action free from Sunset Park at
mile marker 47 on the east end
of the Seven Mile Bridge. For
motorists, there is a $3 per vehi-
cle parking charge next to the
park, with proceeds benefiting
the Navy League of Key West.
Race fans can view boats and
meet teams Friday through
Sunday in the dry pits at the
Marathon city event field, situat-
ed near mile marker 52 at 98th


See GRAND PRIX / 39


This will be scene when the boats start racing Sunday in the
Grand Prix in Marathon.



Soccer girls


win tournament


Outlook
for Lady


good
Conchs


next season
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


So how are members of last
winter's Key West High School
girls soccer team spending their
spring?
They're playing "small-
sided soccer" with the under-18
Key West Soccer Club, and
enjoying great success.
Last weekend at a tourna-
ment in Miramar, the Key West
team composed of Kara Haack,
Krizzie Menez, Rachel Rivet,
Scarlett Williams, Cheryl
Chavka and Chloe DeVelasco
won.four consecutive games -
10-3, 9-1, 12-0 and 8-0 - to


finish first.
"Our girls looked nearly
impossible to beat," said coach
Scott Paul, who also coaches
the Lady Conchs. "They played
with a great deal of confidence
and stamina."
Small-sided soccer, which
calls for considerable foot
skills, is played wittf-fewer
players and no goalies on a
much smaller 20-by-30-yard
field. A three-versus-three-play-
er format was used last week-
end. There are two 15-minute
halves, with only a minute
intermission.
"The speed is such that even
strong players need a break
every two or three minutes,"
Paul said.

Hurricanes
honor best
in baseball
Keynoter Staff


A senior trio that started
throughout their Coral Shores
varsity baseball careers share
the program's top award this
spring.
Ray Ferro, Chris Noble and
Stephen Fowler all received
the Hurricane Award at the
team's recent awards banquet.
Coral Shores sports pro-
grams consider the Hurricane
Award their most-valuable-
player award, but the honor
also factors in team leadership
in addition to athletic prowess.
Ferro, a top-caliber starting
shortstop for three years, this


season shifted to the critical
catcher's spot to fill a defen-
sive need. At the plate, he led
the team in home runs with
five and drove in 16 runs.
Noble, a steady left-side
infielder, hit .387 and led the
team in hits (29), doubles (7)
and RBI (19). He also pitched
19 innings with a 2.94 earned-
run average.
Fowler moved between left
field and first, and was second
in home runs (three) and RBI
(15) while hitting .275.
Centerfielder Ryan
Biondoletti was named winner
of the Bulldog Award (.350
.avg., 21 hits, 11 RBI). He also
pitched 25.2 innings with a
3.27 earned run average.

MVP honor A ;�


Coral Shores
softballers
earn award
Keynoter Staff
Coral Shores softball coaches
Mike Young and Paul Grewe had
trouble deciding on award win-
ners for this spring's remarkable
turnaround season.
"Just about everybody on the
roster had a big game where they
picked us up and made a differ-
ence in a game we might have
lost otherwise," Grewe said.
"That made it tough [to pick
award winners] but it's also kind
of cobl."
Holly Given, a sophomore
pitcher, was named winner of the
program's top honor, the
Hurricane Award, for the second
straight year.
Pitching in the fast-pitch game


is the one essential for a team's
success. Given has been consis-
tently solid as Coral Shores
flipped a 4-11 season in 2007 to
this year's 15-6 record.
"Holly's also one of our top
hitters and may be the best field-
ing pitcher we've ever had,"
Grewe said.
Ciara Sanchez, a senior cap-
tain and fixture at third base for
three years, received the
Leadership Award.
Rozina Malzacher, a senior
infielder, won the team Offensive
Award.
Shelby Gentes, a junior first
baseman, dug enough line drives
and errant throws out of the dirt
to win the Defensive Award.
Senior outfielder and slugger
Tessie Worden received the
Coaches Award. First-year starter
Michelle Sexton was tapped as
Rookie of the Year.

Imagine a place bathed in perpetual
sunshine, sandwiched between the Atlantic
Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico in the Florida
Keys. A place with its own private white sand
beach, pool and boat slips.
This is The Shore at Islamorada - the
site of the 2008 HGTV Dream Home-
where eight elegantly-designed homes will
face the aqua blue waters of Florida Bay.
Each is destined to be a gathering place for
the family for generations to come.
THREE OF THESE HOMES ARE
AVAILABLE AT PRE-CONSTRUCTION
PRICING. AVAILABLE MAY, 2008
