Jury rules

$5 million

Verdict comes in
land-taking case
from Key Largo
Keynoter Staff

A Monroe County jury just
raised the stakes for property
takings in a North Key Largo
case that dates back more than a
dozen years.
The Plantation Key jury on
Thursday awarded $5.06 million
to the owners of a 22-acre North
Key Largo parcel that state
appraisers said was worth only
$100,000. In a companion case,
the same jury awarded $450,000
on a 4.3-acre North Key Largo
property the state valued at
$15,000.
"This is the game they [state]
have been playing," said Key
Largo attorney Jim Mattson,
h\ ho represented, both property
om ners.
"Look at what's happening
on Big Pine and Sugarloaf keys.
Those property owners are
being paid, if they're lucky, 15
cents on the dollar. The govern-
ment puts a heavy thumb on the
scale and drives the prices

Di Gennaro, a Republican

Marathon in spring 2007. And
earlier this month, on a federal
level, he hosted a fundraiser for
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

'An amazing structure'


New bridge over
Jewfish Creek
opens with splash
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Southbound motorists reach-
ing the top of the new Jewfish
Creek Bridge on the 18-Mile


Stretch can view the Atlantic
Ocean glistening in the distance.
"People can see the Atlantic
and realize they're in the Keys,"
said Michael Derksen, Granite
Construction's bridge project
manager. "They could never do
that before," he told a crowd at
Thursday's dedication of the
$93 million bridge. "Now you
know you're on an island."


Several speakers praised the
new Jewfish Creek Bridge,
which replaces an outdated
drawbridge, as a "beautiful
gateway to the Keys." Monroe
County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy first voiced the descrip-
tion. Florida Department of
Transportation ' Secretary
Stephanie Kopelousos echoed it
later.

'It doesn't make any difference'


MAYOR / From 1

it's to the benefit of our county
to have a good relationship on a
personal level with the gover-
nor," he said.
McCoy said the decision is
not related to any strain the posi-
tion may be placing on him.
"I think it's better for the
county, not for me; I enjoy it,"
he said, noting he's already been
mayor this term for longer than
he would prefer.
"I didn't resign and I will take
it up sometime late fall; I'll fin-
ishoff the term," McCoy said.
That's if he's re-elected.
Three people have filed with the
Monroe County Supervisor of
Elections Office to run against
him.
Di Gennaro, who often hosts
political fundraisers at his Key
Colony Beach home,, says he
was surprised at the decision,
which seems unprecedented in
Monroe.
"Sonny is a very clever com-
missioner. He realized ... I work
with a lot of people and do a lot
of traveling [and] thought it was


appropriate
for me to have
the title," he
said.
"He told
me after the
meeting that
Mario has
contact con-
Di GENNARO stantly with
people in
Tallahassee that he's asking to
bring money to the Keys and he
felt it was important for him to
have the designation,"
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
said.
McCoy cited Monroe County
Administrative Rule 1.04(b),
which states: "If, for any reason,
the chairperson is absent or
unable to perform his/her duties,
the vice chairperson, who will
have been elected under the
same circumstances as the chair-
person, shall succeed him."
In an e-mail to Commissioner
George Neugent, County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton indi-
cated McCoy's -action fit the
description of the rule.
"Stepping down from the
position as mayor seems to fit


the 'any rea-
son' the chair-
person is
, 'unable to per- .
form his
duties' part.
.. However,
there does
seem to be
room for the
McCOY
[ County
Commission] to determine that
its rules require an election of
'the new mayor pro tem," she
wrote.
The commission took no vote
to name a vice mayor at a Friday
special meeting.
"I thought we would have
another election," Neugent said.
"Sonny can step down, but I was
under the impression the pro temr
would remain until he was elect-
ed chair."
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy had left the room while
McCoy made his announcement.
"I don't know what the legal-
ity is of [Di Gennaro] taking
over for a long time; that's not
temporary," she said. "Do I
care? No, it doesn't make any
difference to me."

Gas crunch


hits businesses


No one is
immune from
rising costs
By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com


Last year, Jimmy Hendricks
paid almost $1,000 weekly to
fuel up the Key Largo Princess-
glass-bottom boat. Now he's
shelling out $2,000 every week.
"As of this morning, I'm
paying $4.67 per gallon for
diesel," Hendricks said.
The consistently rising
prices are not only hurting driv-
ers as gas hovers at the $4-a-
gallon mark; they're also taking
a toll on local businesses.
Diving, snorkeling and
glass-bottom boat tours, and
even florists, food delivery
drivers and taxes, are being
forced to rethink ticket prices
and delivery routes to better
conserve gas.
"We really have to route our
deliveries more effectively so
we don't have to raise the price
of our delivery fees," said
Helene Brodkin, owner of the
Key Largo Florist and Gift
Shop at mile marker 99.5. "We
can't just run out and deliver in
15 minutes; we have to do a
route."
The future seems grim, as-
AAA predicts many Florida
markets - starting with
Monroe County, Miami,
Gainesville and West Palm
Beach - are going to hit $4
very soon. It's already hap-
pened in Monroe, in Key West.
"It's not a real happy thing,"
said Randy Bly, director of
community relations for AAA
Auto Club South. "What we're
basically saying is ... we're just
not going to see any relief in the
fight."
Diesel prices have taken an
especially drastic turn. One year
ago, the AAA Web site states,
the national average was $2.90.
Now, it's at an all-time high of
$4.52 - and new records are
being set every day.
Islamorada's Holiday Isle
Marina at mile marker 84 sells
Chevron diesel for $4.99 per
gallon.
! "It's'not a trickle down any-
.\, ' .* '* :3 t . * .. , / �


more - it's a rain-down effect
now," said Matt Bellinger, cap-
tain of the Bamboo Charters, a
24-foot yellowfin bay boat that
offers flats and backcountry
fishing.
Bellinger put 57 gallons in
his boat this week for $256. He
charges anywhere from $375 to
$500 for four-, six- and eight-
hour trips, but to continue mak-
ing a profit, he said flats guides
are considering raising ticket
prices by at least $25. He said
nothing is set in stone, however.
If prices continue to rise as
Predicted, Bellinger's fuel con-
sumption costs will have more
than doubled, he said, from
about $13,000 to more than
$26,000 for one year - and
that's at current rates of about
$5 per gallon. If it goes up to
$6, "it's not happening."
Everything about the situa-
tion is affecting his business,
not just his own fuel consump-
tion. His clientele, often day-
trippers from West Palm Beach
and north of the stretch, aren't
making the trip down south
anymore.
"People would be standing
here on the dock when I got
back, asking if there was room
on the next trip," Bellinger said.
"But it's been a quiet tarpon
-season."
Hendricks said he raised his
regular tour prices over the win-
ter holidays - when gas was
about 50 cents cheaper - from
$25 to $30, and he doesn't want
to raise them anymore if he can
help it. However, to counteract
the fuel cost and employee
wages, he said he is considering
increasing his 10-person maxi-
mum tours.
Tom Timmerman, captain,
owner and course director for
the Florida Keys Dive Center,
said raising his prices by 10 per-
cent is not out of the question.
He owns two boats and he said
he uses about 500 gallons every
10 days. At $4.56 per gallon, it
costs $2,280 about three times a
month to fill up both boats.
"For the people who are trav-
eling, they are under the same
crunch, the same disadvantage
as we all are," he said. "It's like,
how far is it going to go?"

"What an amazing structure
we have here," she declared.
After the evening dedication,
crews worked to remove barriers
and redirected two-way traffic
onto the arching span, which took
three years to build and was near-
ly two decades in the planning.
Northbound and southbound
traffic now share the east side of
the bridge while work continues
on the west side. The full bridge
is scheduled to open around mid-
October.
A lengthy drawspan opening
of the old Jewfish Creek Bridge
threatened to prevent invited
guests-from reaching the 5 p.m.
dedication and ribbon-cutting.
"That should be the last time
you guys ever get stopped by the
drawbridge," Derksen assured
the crowd. "A new era is open-
ing..:. A key part of that is this is
the last day anyone will he held
-up by the drawbridge."
With a 65-foot-high arch,
boats now can travel Jewfish
Creek without waiting for the
aging bridge to crank open.
While bridge openings were lim-
ited on weekends, heavy traffic
often created miles-long backups.
Granite made a special effort
to open the new ridge to avoid
traffic problems this Memorial
Day weekend - o.ne of the
busiest holiday\ s of the year in the
Keys. '


Former state representative
and Monroe County
Commissioner Ken Sorensen
noted that the Jewfish Creek
Bridge is the first major bridge to
open in the Keys since the Seven
Mile Bridge opened more than a
quarter-century ago.
The narrow width of the old
U.S. 1 led to serious head-on col-
lisions on the 18-Mile Stretch,
Sorensen said. "I've seen bodies
strewn all over. I hope this is the
beginning of the end of that."
A six-year, $300 million proj-
ect to rebuild and widen all of
U.S. 1 from Key Largo to Florida
City seeks to make travel to and
from the Keys safer and allow a
complete evacuation of the Keys
in a hurricane threat.
Florida Keys residents and
conservationists protested -the
original design, resembling a
four-laned turnpike with a wide
median, saying it would damage
protected mangroves and over-
whelm the Upper Keys with a
flood of increased traffic.
Years of controversy fol-
lowed, with DOT and Monroe
County eventually agreeing on
the two-lane safety design, which
features wider lanes and shoul-
ders, the new bridge and the bar-
rier.
"It's something that we've
been waiting for years," Sheriff
Rick Roth said. "That barrier is a
great thing and we expect that to
be one of.our biggest lifesaving
designs put into the highway."

Keys Opinion


Pay special tribute

this Memorial Day

How many of you are old enough to remember when
Memorial Day was called Decoration Day?
Nah, you may have read about that in history books, but
you'd have to be around before World War I to make the,
claim.
Still, the history of this national day of observance is a les-
son well worth reviewing, especially since it was originally
seen as a special remembrance for war dead following the
Civil War.
If you grew up in the South, that would be the War Between
the States - yet another historical aside we often forget gen-
erations later.
The first "official" observance is generally listed as 1866,
when the townsfolk of Waterloo, N.Y., gathered to place
flowers on the graves of those who died in the war.
But there are a dozen other communities across the land that
also lay claim to early observance of this Decoration Day rit-
ual, which has been traced to customs in the South.
New York was the first state to officially sanction this annu-
al observance in 1873. All the northern states followed suit by
1890. But the South refused, setting up a separate day of
remembrance for their dead.
You may be surprised to learn that Florida is among a hand-
ful of southern states that still sets aside a separate day to
honor Confederate war dead, on April 26.
It wasn't until World War I that the separate observances
really began to erode, when Decoration Day was changed
from honoring those who died fighting in the Civil War to
include all Americans who died fighting in any war.
That's why this Memorial Day has special meaning. The-
continuing struggle in Iraq, Afghanistan and other far-flung
places around the world remind us of the sacrifices made on
our behalf.
- So when you're celebrating this holiday weekend, remem-
ber how Memorial Day got started and why we pause to
honor those who have given so much so that we remain free.
And it's proper to do a little flag waving. For a list of Keys
observances, see Page 40. And when you see television cov-
erage from Arlington National Cemetery Monday, you will
see literally tens of thousands of flags marking every grave.
More than 260,000 people are buried at Arlington, repre-
senting veterans who served this nation from the American
Revolution through the Persian Gulf War, Somialia and now
the war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
It's a somber day of remembrance. Please keep it so.

Animals aren't disposable
EDITOR:
My heart is.bleeding as I witnessed yet
another casualty of our disposable society.
As I was visiting the animals at the Marathon
Animal shelter, I came across a beautiful female
cat who was upset, distressed and crying and
crying and crying. I approached her and petted
her all the while she was crying. Her story: She
was adopted as a declawed kitten and had spent
the eight years of her life bonding with the same
person. Enter a boyfriend, exit the cat.
SAllergies and hardships can be. worked out as
long as there is a will to do so. Disposal is the
quick, simple solution. The animal has no
understanding of or input on this decision. Now,
I hope everyone who surrenders a pet knows


what life in a shelter means. If not, I invite you
to go see for yourself.
Older pets are easily adopted. Everyone
wants these tiny, cute little creatures, but then it
is a pet, a lifetime commitment. By adopting
older pets who, contrary to misconception, are
not surrendered because they have been problem
animals, the commitment is shorter and might
suit older people. Animals can easily adapt to a
new life of love if given the chance.
The other night, I saw the cat again. She was
calmer but still very distressed. What can I do?
What can you do?

Embrace our beauty, even if for a short time


EDITOR:
Sometimes life comes at us hard and at times
it can border on all-out mayhem. I think it gets
to all of us on occasion, aifd it makes us forget
the simpler but greater things in life.
We in the Keys are fortunate to live in one of
the most beautiful places on this planet, but
how many of us actually get out and really
enjoy the pure natural beauty of it all? We get
so involved and caught up in the political
aspects of life, the sewer system, taxes, budget
cutbacks, shrinking investment interest rates,
high gas prices, etc., that we become temporari-
ly blind to our magnificent surroundings.
Then there is the traffic, and the noise asso-
ciated with it. Radios blasting; horns honking;
sirens wailing; dogs barking; and motorcycles,
cars and trucks roaring up and down the high-
way seemingly everyday, all day long (did I


Last Stand forum
draws big crowd
EDITOR:
Your otherwise good article May 17 report-
ing on Last Stand's public information forum,
"Water Quality: What the Experts Say," on May
14 failed to mention that it was a Last Stand
program. We welcome the opportunity to cor-
rect the oversight.
Last Stand, the Keys' grassroots environmen-
tal and quality-of-life organization, regularly
puts on public educational programs on a vari-
ety of important Keys issues, in addition to our
other activities.
It's worth noting the Last Stand forum on
water quality had the highest attendance of any
one-time program held in at the Florida Keys
Eco-Discovery Center since its opening, accord-
ing to the center's management. Last Stand
thanks those who participated on the panel, the
volunteers and donors who helped with the
refreshments, and all those who attended.

mention high gas prices?).
Now, I know there are others as well as
myself that may already do what I am about to
suggest, but I think more people should do this
for their own peace of mind. It works wonders
for me, and I am reasonably sure it will work
for you too.
If you are not an early riser, set the alarm so
you can get up before daybreak, early enough to
put on a pot of coffee, throw some water on you
face and head out somewhere, somehow, to
watch the sunrise over the water, or just watch
the sky change from darkness to beautiful.
Take a drive across the Seven Mile Bridge,
ride a bike or walk across the old bridge, take a
stroll on the beach, or take your boat out on the
water and turn off the engine and just float
around and listen to the sound of silence.
Breathe in the fresh air and feel the cool early-
morning breeze upon your face. Watch a new
day being bor, and thank the good Lord that
you were able to experience it.
Just for that one hour or less, before the
madness of the day resumes, you will once
again realize and enjoy the true beauty of this
place we call home, and maybe, just maybe, it
will make the rest of your day a little brighter.

County backs down on code fines


It reduces
collection goal
to 25 percent
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission approved a code enforce-
ment "settlement" with Sugarloaf
Key resident Orlando Ramos
Wednesday for $275 - a fine
that was negotiated down from
$57,600.
Seeking to recoup a larger
amount of fines, the county Code
Department brought a resolution
before the commission
Wednesday requesting "that the
board uphold the amount of the
liens brought before them by
accepting a minimum of no less
than 85 percent of accrued fines
and costs in the settlement of


cases."
The resolution states that of 33
liens in 2007 totaling $864,070,
just $69,954, or 8.1 percent, was
collected.
However, several commis-
sioners felt the 85 percent was too
high and eventually settled on 25
percent. Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy said to jump right to 85
percent is "Draconian" and rec-
ommended the smaller number.
"When people catch on
they're not going to negotiate
them down, they'll start doing
what they're supposed to do," she
said.
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
said she has reservations about
the board losing authority. over
enforcing the fines because many,
such as Ramos', have extenuating
circumstances.
Assistant County Attorney


Cynthia Hall said Ramos had a
cistern installed at his property to
get a building permit allocation;
the cistern developed a crack and
had to be replaced. He then had
the old one removed without a
demolition permit and began
accruing code fines of $150 until
the violation was corrected.
"He hired a plumber and engi-
neer, who took a year and a half
to get the permit. He's somewhat
at fault, but Mr. Ramos does real-
ly not speak English and for
about 95 percent of the time peri-
od involved, he did not under-
stand what is going on," Hall
said.
"Some of them [fines] are
astronomical and if we impose
the lien, it would take their prop-
erty away; I won't be a part of
that," Spehar said. "I want to hear
the reasons as to what happened."
"There may be instances
where [staff] wants to recom-


mend less than 25 percent and in
those instances we would go back
in front of the board," she said.
Newly appointed Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said county
residents are used to taking
advantage of the system.
"In certain areas the county
needs to be retrained. We need
better rules to enforce the viola-
tions; 25 percent is just a start and


But FWC says
it must be
something else
Keynoter Staff

The state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission says
it's highly unlikely, but some in
the Coco Plum neighborhood of
Marathon swear an endangered
Florida panther - common in
the Everglades but rarely seen in
the Keys - is wandering around.
"He's coming over drinking
out of our fountain," said Becky
Orr, who manages the Royal
Plum Club, an oceanfront vaca-
tion condo complex at Coco
Plum Drive and Avenue G.
"A month or two ago, a man
missed the turn and went to the
end of Coco Plum and came
around and a big cat was in front"
of his car, Maintenance Director
Kevin Carte says. "He said the
panther looked at him and
walked into the woods"
The latest reported sitings were
twice this week by a Rome, Ga.,
woman visiting with her family.
Abbie Duvall, 21, is staying in
a second-story condo. She says
that Tuesday around 2 a.m., "I
was talking on the phone on the
deck thing. The panther walked
along the trail, along the court-
yard.... There's a little alligator
pond and he was drinking water
out of that. Then I ran and got my
brother and we came out to look


we should look at that even more
serious," he said. "We have to
make a profit to cover our
expenses."

"We as a county have trained
the community that it's basically
a joke when you get these letters
for fines," County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said.


at him but I guess he heard us and
ran away.
She says it happened again
around the same time Thursday.
"This time he came from the
waterhole and walked to the
other side of the. courtyard,"
Duvall says. "I didn't see him
anymore. I'd never seen a pan-
ther before so I called it a bobcat
with a tail. It wasn't a dog [but it
was] about the size of a golden
retriever."
FWC Officer Bobby Dube
says his agency sent officers out
to check but found nothing.
"You would think if there was
one roaming around, we would
be getting five calls a day," he
says.
And then there's the matter of
how a panther would get to
Marathon. They don't swim and
if it did happen to make its way
down U.S. 1, surely someone
would have seen it. And they
roam, so "they need hundreds
and hundreds of acres of habitat,"
Dube notes.
He said it could indeed be a
bobcat, though bobcats aren't
indigenous to the Keys. Panthers,
though, have been spotted as far
south as North Key Largo, and
one was killed by a car last year
on Card Sound Road.
Duvall insists what she saw in
Marathon was a Florida panther.
"You can just tell, he's not a
dog," she says. "He's a kitty, a
big, big kitty."

Keys scores outpace state


But 2 schools'
results show

Keys briefs


Pego is boosted
to top DOT official

The man responsible for over-
seeing construction of the new
Jewfish Creek Bridge in Key
Largo - which just opened
Thursday - has been named
District 6 secretary of the state
Department of Transportation.
In that role, Gus Pego is
responsible for the overall plan-
ning, design, construction, opera-
tions and maintenance of the
state highway system in Miami-
Dade.and Monroe counties.
As director of Transportation
Operations since 1996, Pego was
responsible for all the road and
bridge construction, traffic opera-
tions and maintenance of the state
highway system in the district,
which includes the district's
Intelligent Transportation System,
known in the Keys as the camera
poles and electronic message
signs.
DOT Secretary Stephanie
Kopelousos made the appoint-
ment earlier this month. Pego
replaces Johnny Martinez left in
January.

Crime Watch
chapter created

The first meeting of the new
Sombrero Boulevard Crime
Watch chapter in Marathon is
planned for 5 p.m. June 5 at the
Marathon Yacht Club 33rd.
Monroe County Sheriff's

discuss measures to take to pro-
tect properties from theft. There

third-grade scores," Monroe
County School District
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said after test results were
released Thursday.
The state average was 72 per-
cent of students passing the
reading test and 76 percent pass-
ing in math.
But the overall high passing
-level for reading and math by
Keys kids left one School Board
member lingering on the poorer-
than-average FCAT writing
scores, released earlier this
month, across all grade levels.
"Reading, writing and arith-
metic - it may be .old fash-
ioned, but that's what I'm look-
ing for," board member Duncan
Mathewson said. "Not only do I
worry about state [averages], but
we should be beating the nation-
al" average.
Glynn Archer Elementary in
Key West and Sugarloaf
Elementary struggled this year.
Glynn Archer students have reg-
ularly tested below the county
average.
Almost 40 percent of the
school's students failed the math


test and more than 30 percent
failed the writing test. Almost 30
percent of Sugarloaf students
failed the writing test and more
than 30 percent failed the math
test.
School Board member John
Dick said Glynn Archer has a
disproportionate numbers of stu-
dents living in poverty, an indi-
cator that he said is consistent
with poorer performance.
Plantation Key School third-
graders continued to best most
other schools' scores across the
board, though the stud-ents
slipped some in reading.
At Stanley . Switlik
Elementary School in Marathon,
94 percent of students passed the
math test, the highest percentage
in the district, and 88.percent
passed the reading test, the sec-
ond-best percentage in the dis-
trict.
"I'm particularly impressed
with Stanley Switlik," School
Board member Debra Walker
said. "With something like 50
percent of the students starting
as non-English speakers, and to
have [those] reading and math
scores, for kids learning another
language, that's impressive."

Hurricane Season begins June 1st.


cjMedical Checklist

Residents and visitors with medical conditions
are especially vulnerable to the threat of
hurricanes and those on medications, or who
require ongoing professional health care, should
make preparations with medical facilities in areas
not affected by tropical storms.

3r Minimum two-week supply of medicine
(one month is ideal)
O First Aid kits for the home and car
O Waterproof containers
I Medical records
(history, medications, doctors' names and phone numbers)
n Ice, water
(minimum of one gallon of water per person, per day)
f Pet medications
* In the event of an evacuation, please take these items
with you since shelters provide no medical attention.

Before hurricane season in the Florida Keys begins,
residents should prepare a hurricane survival kit that
covers the basics and fulfills your medical needs.
Diabetic Patients: preserve insulin with a plan to
provide refrigeration for at least two weeks. (extra ice
and coolers, a refrigerated cooler powered by your car.
Keep insulin away from direct contact with ice by
wrapping it in a towel)
Dialysis Patients: contact medical facilities outside of
Shurricane-prone areas.
Oxygen Patients: generator in the event of a power
failure and portable oxygen in case of an evacuation.
Evacuations are always the safest bet for residents
requiring constant medical attention or medication. In
the aftermath of a storm, supply lines and
emergency/medical personal may be disrupted for
prolonged periods of time.

Gastesi baptized by fire


Administrator
gets through
first meeting
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The mayor stepped down;
commissioners argued back and
forth; hours and hours of sewer
talk - par for the course,
Roman Gastesi said of his first
meeting as Monroe County
administrator.
"I'll tell you what, there's def-
initely folks that care; there's
some passion, that's for sure,"
Gastesi said, adding Wed-
nesday's regular meeting in Key
Largo paled in comparison to
what he's seen in his time with
Miami-Dade County and the
South Florida . Water
Management District.
"Water Management is a very
passionate board and they used
to get into it heavy. If properly
put together, you have one or
two of every group and they all
get in the room together and
decide what to do with water and
they'd get into it big time," he


said.
"I have to
think he was
in a state of
shock in light
of the
demeanor of
the commis-
sion in gener-
GASTESI al, like, 'What
have I gotten
myself into,'" Commissioner
George Neugent said.
Gastesi succeeded Tom Willi,
who was let go in December.
Gastesi joked during the
meeting he felt like a "caged.
lion" because he wasn't familiar
enough some material to be
involved.
"I was somewhat frustrated
because I didn't know the issues
well enough to engage," he said.
"The couple issues I did know, I
gave my opinion."
Gastesi said he has been
meeting extensively with staff
and is "pleasantly surprised by
the high level of professionalism
and knowledge." He said he was
surprised at a recent meeting not
to receive much feedback from


staff.
"A high-level guy told said
'We've never been asked before,
that's why you're not getting any
response,"' Gastesi said. "I real-
ly need to concentrate on
empowering staff. [They've]
been feeling like they can't
express their knowledge."
Newly appointed Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said he under-
stands Gastesi was frustrated
Wednesday but believes he will
be a "great" administrator.
"My dream is to have him
assist me in Tallahassee with
wastewater," Di Gennaro said,
pointing out Gastesi's many con-
tacts with the state.
Commissioners Dixie Spehar
and Neugent each expressed
concern about Gastesi's plan to
research buying the Rowell's
Marina property near mile mark-
er 104 in Key Largo for public
access.
"His comment about we're
having serious budget issues and
then [wanting to] research buy-
ing a property in Key Largo, that
one caught me with my mouth
hanging open," Spehar said, say-
ing she has been otherwise
pleased with Gastesi's approach.


Vasil: Give FKAA a 2nd look


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

In the discussions to decide
who will manage Marathon's
new sewer utility, there's one
option that hasn't been consid-
ered - the people already
doing it.
City Councilman Don Vasil
says he will discuss plans at
Tuesday's regular council
meeting to keep the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority,
which already manages the
wastewater. treatment plant
serving the Little Venice area,
on board as the operator for
the entire city.
The council will hear a res-
olution to acquire that plant
and take over as of Oct. 1. It
declared on Feb. 12 its inten-
tions to purchase the plant and
directed staff to negotiate an
agreement.
"Little Venice has been
operating super unddr them
and they have a bigger pool of
employees and a bigger train-
ing program.-They have an


engineering staff that is unbe-
lievable," Vasil said. "If
wastewater [operations and
maintenance] is kept inde-
pendent, this might create a
bidding war for licensed oper-
ators of the system."
However,' Vasil said he
feels the Aqueduct Authority
"seems to want to operate only
what they own."
"I have explored this with
at least one board member of
the aqueduct and got the di4-
tinct impression they don't
want to do [operations and
maintenance] on systems they
haven't constructed and own.
Aqueduct Authority
Executive Director Jim
Reynolds said no official
request has beeh made by the
city.
"I can't speak to whether
we would do it or not do it,"
he said. "We have told the city
[in the past] we would not be
interested in operating a sewer
plant on behalf of another util-


ity because it would create a
controversy with. one board
working under another board."
At a Friday workshop with
council and staff, City
Manager Clyde Burnett said
the Aqueduct Authority would
be welcome to respond to a
request for proposals from
outside vendors to operate the
system.
"I think [Vasil] is thinking
the aqueduct is already operat-
ing three or four plants and
he's thinking we may want to
look to them," Burnett said.
"They're pretty consistent
[that] they're nqt interested in
managing," Councilman Mike
Cinque said at the workshop.
"If they don't own it, they
don't run it."
Vasil said the city owes it to
residents to operate the system
in the most cost-efficient man-
ner.
"In order to accomplish
this, entities need to stop wor-
rying about their own sphere
of influences and worry about
the bigger picture," he said.

MMC


loses


again

Landowner
wants dolphin
group out
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


After Monroe County Circuit
Judge Luis Garcia rejected a
-motion by the Marine Mammal
Conservancy, attorneys for the
group and landowner John Powers
are scheduled to meet June 4.
The MMC filed an appeal of
Garcia's April 10 decision to
declare the marine-mammal res-
cue group is in default of its lease
with JPB Properties, headed by
Powers.
That summary-judgment deci-
sion came after the MMC sued
the landowner, contending
Powers would not honor a prior
commitment to sell a three-acre
bayfront property on Key Largo
to the group for use as a rehabili-
tation site.
Powers' attorneys argued the
pledge was rendered moot
because -MMC violated its lease
in several areas.
JPB Properties faces exten-
sive code-enforcement fines over
unfinished or unapproved con-
struction launched by MMC.
MMC . President Robert
Lingenfelser argued in a written
statement to the court that the
group's construction efforts were
stalled because JPB attorneys
interfered with the permitting
process.
Garcia disagreed in his April
ruling, and on May 12 rejected
the MMC's request for him to
reconsider it.,
The MMC has added new
attorneys to the case. An appeal
could be filed, but attorneys or
MMC officers could not be
reached at press time.
In his April 10 ruling, Garcia
withheld a writ of possession that
would allow JPB to regain con-
trol of the Key Largo site near
mile marker 102.5.
Powers' attorneys are expect-
ed to seek that writ in a previous-
ly scheduled June 4 appearance
before Garcia.

Village looks at building permit relief


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

"I just want to build a house,
a basic house next to where my
parents lived," Islamorada resi-
dent Frank Ortiz told the
Islamorada Village Council
Thursday night.
Ortiz has been waiting since
January 2004 for a permit to
build a single-family home on
his lot on Carroll Street.
This year, he qualified to
apply for administrative relief,


a demand for the village to
issue a building permit or buy
his property. Otherwise, not
issuing a permit could be con-
sidered taking the land by
denying him economic use.
The council voted unani-
mously to ensure Ortiz gets a
permit in the next permit allo-
cation period by awarding him
two "perseverance points,"
putting his application at the
top of the list.


But with more than 140
other applicants nearing the
four-year mark in the permit
allocation system, this likely
won't be the last time the coun-
cil needs to make this kind of
decision.
"We're about to enter a very
difficult time," said
Councilman Dave Boerner,
who added he doesn't want to
repeat problems caused by the
unincorporated county's rate-
of-growth allocation system.
"We face the same opportu-


Sportfishing museum gains support


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Plans to build a sportfishing
museum and public auditorium in
Islamorada got a step closer to
reality Wednesday.
At the Village Council's regu-
lar Wednesday workshop, coun-
cil members told Village
Manager Ken Fields to submit a
management plan to the state for
the project at the former
Southwinds Motel property
between U.S. 1 and the Old
Highway near mile marker 82.
Proposed plans include a fish-
ing museum with permanent and
temporary exhibition space; a
130-seat auditorium that could be
used for council meetings, com-
munity gatherings and perform-
ances; an outdoor plaza featuring
statues and other fishing com-
memorations; and a passive park.
"I was intrigued how many
people stop in front of the
Hurricane Monument and
Theater of the Sea to get their
picture taken," said Fields, who
began his job March, 17. 'This
Should give people a reason to stop
in downtown and utilize the busi-
nesses here.
"This will be a symbol of
Islamorada," he added.
Fields said the project is still
several years away.
Council members, minus the
absent Michael Reckwerdt,
embraced the project as a poten-
tial landmark and "signature
building" of Upper Matecumbe
Key, generally regarded as
Islamorada's downtown..
"We talk about community
character," Councilman Don
Achenberg said. "We can begin
to define our community charac -
ter with this bliilding." - - -


Councilwoman Jill Zima
Borski said she likes the project's
proximity to the History of
Diving Museum. "We have a cul-
tural Mecca in the making, per-
haps," she said.
Councilman Dave Boerner, an
architect, suggested letting stu-
dents at the University of Miami
or Florida International
University create designs for the
project as a class assignment.
"My concern is doing it
wrong. We tend to hire low-level
design people," Boerner said.
"This would give us a chance to
get quality design ideas at no
cost."
The Southwinds site once was
among proposed locations for
village administrative offices but
was dismissed. The motel on the
property has been razed.
Islamorada bought the proper-
ty in 2004 from the Archdiocese
of Miami with a $500,000 grant
from the Florida Communities
Trust, a state land-buying pro-
gram.
Conditions of the grant call for
the property to be developed as a
public-access recreational facili-
ty.-
Assistant Public Works
Director Zully Hemeyer said
Islamorada held community
meetings with neighboring prop-
erty owners shortly after the site
was bought to gauge proposed
uses for the land. She said her
department's proposal is a slight
departure from what was dis-
cussed.
"They did not want to see an
attractive nuisance that would
make the property high-mainte-
nance," said Hemeyer. "What
We'r'- propo'sin-g-i'smore use,7


obviously."
Public comment was not taken
at the workshop. But at
Thursday's regular Village
Council meeting, one resident
voiced concerns with the intensi-
ty of the proposed.development.
Residents "wanted something
low-impact and passive," Rod
Halenza said. "I heard Mr. Fields
call it a destination. -It's a noble
ambition, but I feel we might be
imposing something on that
neighborhood."


nity to make a farce of the [per-
mit allocation] system," he
said.
In discussing the type of
relief, Vice Mayor Don
Achenberg first proposed
adding one point to the score of
Ortiz's permit application.
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt proposed adding
three points, while
Councilwoman Jill Zima
Borski said she'd split the dif-
ference at two.
Because the state limits how
many permits can be issued
annually, permit application
scores are based on building
and environmental factors.
Permits go to the highest-scor-
ing applications.
"We can't make- random
decisions ... and be number
picking; there has to be a rea-
son for this," said Boerner,
who supported giving one
point to Ortiz. "That I think is
justified and doesn't set a
precedent."
Reckwerdt said each admin-
istrative-relief case is to be
looked at individually, so a
precedent wouldn't be set.
"We can grant 12 points to


him and one point to the next
one as long as we have some
reasoning behind it," he said.
The city of Marathon, which
operates under its own permit
allocation system, recently
dealt with the fallout from
granting one of its first permits
through administrative relief.
In February 2005, the
Marathon City Council granted
relief to an applicant who
owned property at the end of a
gravel road, By granting the
permit, the city then had to
ensure the home had access to
fire and emergency medical
services.
That required the road to be
paved, with the $130,000 cost
dispersed among the 10 other
property owners on the street
who had yet to build. The
assessments began in fall of
2006.

City nixes noise-law change


Lopez vows
to bring, it
back again
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West bar and restaurant
owners and residents made some
noise at Tuesday's City
Commission meeting over an
ordinance that would shorten the
distance a resident must be from a
commercial facility to file a noise
complaint.
The commission ultimately
voted against changing the city


noise law, with Commissioner
Clayton Lopez and Mayor
Morgan McPherson dissenting.
Lopez sponsored the 'ordi-
nance, which the commission
unanimously passed on first read-
ing May 6. Despite Tuesday's
rejection of it on second reading,
he says he's bringing it back for
yet another go-around, this time
making clear that changes would
apply to the island's commercial
historic district.
"We are going to shore it up in
a way to actually get it passed this
time to include that district,"
Lopez said. "If it satisfies the

neighbors and is not too injurious
to the business, that's what we
want. That's the bottom line."
According to city code, there
are two types of noise in the city,
unreasonable and disturbing.
Unreasonable noise is ongoing
sound measured at 75 decibels.
During the day, from 7 a.m. to 8
p.m., it's sound measured at 60
decibels. For enforcement, a
decibel meter must be used to
detect unreasonable noise 100
feet away from the source of the
noise.
Disturbing noise is "raucous
and jarring, due to volume, char-
acter, or duration, and that causes
an actual interference with a per-
son's ability to enjoy peacefully
his residence or place of busi-
ness," according to city code. No
decibel reading is required to
determine reasonable noise from
100 feet from the source.
Lopez's ordinance would've


cut that distance from 100 feet to
40 feet for residential units.
The ordinance's first reading
passed with very little discussion,
but Tuesday's meeting brought
business owners who claim their
operations are constantly scruti-
nized and residents who claim the
city's police and Code
Compliance Department don't
enforce the law.
Interim Police Chief Donie
Lee said the decibel readers are
costly and time consuming to use.
The department would prefer
officers use their discretion.
Lopez also argues against the
decibel readers, saying officers'
testimony is stronger in noise
cases.
"It becomes considerably
more subjective with decibel
readers," Lopez said, "because
you have to separate ambient
noises and the wind."
Blue Heaven restaurant owner


Richard Hatch questioned the
objectivity of disturbing noise
and said a change in the ordi-

of arrests on warrants and more
than two dozen fines ranging
from $50 to $375, according to
Coast Guard reports.
"It's not really an increased
patrol effort," said Ensign
Matthew Meinhold, Coast Guard
spokesman. "We do this typical-
ly once a year, sometimes more,
to make sure everybody is in
compliance with boating laws."
FWC officer David Dipre
said about a half-dozen patrol
vessels checked moored and
anchored boats near Wisteria
Island, Fleming Key, the Key
West mooring field, Boca Chica,
Geiger Key and Cow Key
Channel.
He said the team would likely
reassemble in about a month or
two and continue inspections in
the Middle and Upper Keys.
"Some people say, 'Why did-
n't you notify boaters?'" Dipre
said. "The reason is none of the
laws have changed, at least not
for the last 10 years, and none of
this should be a shock or surprise
for anyone."
Officials checked for proper
safety equipment and registra-
tions, anchor lights and sanita-
tion equipment that showed


boaters were using proper pump-
out services and facilities and
not dumping Waste into the
water, which is prohibited in the
sanctuary.
"We don't have to catch them
in the act" of discharging," said
Dipre. "If they have a facility, a
toilet, on board and the valve is
not properly secure or it's open,
it's a $250 infraction. We'll
come back to make sure it's
secured, and if it hasn't been, we
can get a court order to have the
vessel removed."
The Keys' no-discharge zone
was established in 2002.
However, Dipre said he hasn't
seen much change in boating
habits in the past six years.
"It's been minimal improve-
ment, to be honest with you,"
Dipre said. "Most of the new
yachts are plumbed in properly
and they can't pump overboard.
But on the older vessels, many
people have [proper equipment]
on board but don't utilize them.
"They have a legal toilet, but
the boat doesn't run or they
don't take it to a place to pump
out," he said. "What that means
is they are in compliance as far
as the law goes, but they are still


discharging."
John Mikusak, dock master at
Plantation Yacht Harbor Marina
at Islamorada Founders Park,
said this kind of enforcement
should be welcomed by the boat-
ing community.
"I can't speak for every mari-
na, but I know our marina is a
clean marina and everybody here
performs," Mikusak said.
"We've gone to the effort of
making sure there's a pump-out
in every slip and making sure
people use it."
Mikusak said there are 31
active slips while construction is
going to refurbish 57 others, and
all the slips will have dedicated
sewage pump-outs.
However, he said he's heard
boaters in other harbors in the
Upper Keys, particularly Key
Largo, have had trouble finding
accessible pump-out facilities.
He also said Monroe County's
pump-out boat service has been
spotty.
"People say they've tried to
call and had difficulty getting the
service," he said. "Here, we
break our backs to make sure it's
available when they need it."


Yes to sewers for No Name


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Commission voted Wednesday
to sewer No Name Key, some-
thing the island's residents have
been waiting to hear for years
since having their "hot spot"
designation removed.
Being a hot spot means No
Name will be a priority to hook
up to central sewers once the
county installs them.
If the residents aren't part of
the system, they might have to
install their own individual
sewer plants to comply with a
state mandate of advanced
wastewater treatment by July
2010.
But Commissioner George
Neugent cautioned No Name
residents that the vote to sewer
their island doesn't mean it will
happen any time soon.
"The thing that hasn't sunk in
yet is we're broke. No matter if
we make you a hot spot or not,
we're dead in the water as far as
moving forward with sewering


anyone," Neugent said. "It's a
house of cards that has no sub-
stance. I don't think some of my
colleagues understand that."
Neugent said his office has
already begun receiving calls
from other county "cold spots"
such as Eden Pines and Port Pine
Heights on Big Pine Key about
receiving sewers.
"I predicted this to happen,"
he said. "People are saying 'You
made No Name Key a hot spot,
we want to be sewered too.'"
New Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro said the county has for
years been dragging its feet with
sewering in general, costing it
"hundreds of millions of dol-
lars."
"They should have never
been taken off the hot list. They
are entitled to be sewered; let's
get the job done," he told the
Keynoter. "We're not going to
make [the 2010 deadline], but
let's do it as quick as possible."
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy was the lone no vote,


but says her vote doesn't mean
she's against sewering No Name
Key.
"What we did in that vote is
lock ourselves into a promise,
and that I was not going to do.
I'd go for it in a heartbeat if it
can be done like everything else,
but I'm not willing to promise
something we cannot do for
everyone else in that same situa-
tion," she said.
A staff memo included with
the agenda item says No Name
was "inadvertently ... complete-
ly omitted from the county's
2000 wastewater plan," making
it a cold spot and a low priority
for installing sewers. It also says
1999 studies show water-quality
degradation on the island.
SNo Name residents presented
33 signatures at the April County
Commission meeting asking to
be included in plans to sewer
Big Pine Key, despite their off-
the-grid status. No Name resi-
dents generate -their own elec-
tricity, collect their own water
and dispose of their own sewage.

Mural is larger than life


By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

Captain Slate's Atlantis Dive
Center in Key Largo is undergo-
ing a new look.
Motorists driving by may
have seen Cape May, N.J., artist
David Dunleavy painting a
mural on the walls of the build-
ing at mile marker 106.5. He
said it's to raise public aware-
ness of the importance of the
Keys' living coral reef.
He began May 15 and is near-
ly done.


Of all 53 murals he has paint-
ed, Dunleavy said this one is the
hardest because of the odd
angles of the A-frame at the dive
center.
Building owner Spencer Slate
recently went diving with
Dunleavy at the Christ of the
Abyss statue off Key Largo and
said he is excited about the proj-
ect and the positive attention he
anticipates the mural will bring
to the Keys.

are common in the Keys but
there are only a few as large in
scope.
"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 ...
As a scuba diver, I will take all
the inspiration and beauty from
local diving experiences and
paint it on the wall for people to
enjoy for many years to come."
The mural will showcase the
Christ statue, the living coral
reef and colorful marine life that
is indigenous to Key Largo.
When complete, it will wrap
around three sides of the build-
ing.
Dunleavy's murals can be
seen in the United States, the
Bahamas, Australia - he said
that one is the biggest marine
mural in the that country at 300
feet by 75 feet - and at the
History of Diving Museum in
Islamorada, mile marker 83.

Conch Cafe to be replaced


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The commercial backbone of
Bahama Village, the intersection
of Petronia and Thomas streets in
Key West, is transforming, as the
Conch Town Cafe and its adjoin-


Need A

ing apartments will be demol-
ished to make way for new ten-
ants.
The Key West Planning Board
approved plans Thursday night
for the owner to rebuild.
The cafe sells traditional
Conch food locals at its location
across from Blue Heaven restau-
rant and Johnson's Grocery.
"I do believe it's a really nice
project for Bahama Village,"
property owner Jim Marsh said.
"I take anybody's concern seri-
ously."
Marsh addressed concerns
over lights potentially shining
into neighbors' yards. He said
they would be contained within
his property.
The project's commercial plan
isn't spelled out clearly in plan-
ning documents. The proposal
says only that the one-story
building would become 2.5 sto-
ries, with commercial- space on
the first floor and two apartments
on the second.
Resident Jerry Curtis, whose
house is right across from Blue
Heaven, told Marsh he appreci-
ates his other projects in Bahama
Village and thinks this one "is a
good idea."
Curtis said the commercial


tenant, whoever it will be, should
keep the business "low intensity.
The concern I have is with the
retail space.... The neighborhood
is pretty crowded right now."
Project consultant Ty
Symroski responded to concerns,
saying they had no plans to
expand the cafe and - if they did
- it would have to come back
before the Planning Board.
"It's not our intention to put a
restaurant right there," Symroski
said. "What we're contemplating
is a very pedestrian-oriented
area.... It would be crazy to have
anything that is automobile-ori-
ented over there."
The 4,386-square-foot proper-
ty has the potential for 12 to 13
seats, according to Symroski. But
the total consumption area is only
200 square feet, so the idea is to
have a take-out establishment.
When Marsh bought the prop-
erty, he inherited a number of
code violations such as an unper-
mitted deck and tables. Symroski
says those violations will die
when the buildings are. demol-
ished.
Marsh still needs to apply for
a variance with the Board of
Adjustment to waive his require-
ment to have parking spaces.
Then the plan will go before the
City Commission.

Higgs Beach question headed to ballot


City would
acquire site
from county
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The decision of whether the
city of Key West should acquire
Higgs Beach from Monroe
County could lie with Key
Westers if the question is put on
the November ballot.
The Key West City
Commission passed the first
reading of an ordinance Tuesday
that would transfer the land to the


city free of cost, but concerns
over maintenance and other
long-term expenses were
addressed at the meeting.
Ultimately, commissioners
said changes need to be made to
the property.
"Anybody could do a better
job than what's being done
already," Commissioner Clayton
Lopez said.
Commissioners and some res-
idents wanted to draw out con-
crete plans outlining what would
be done with the property if it's
acquired. They also wanted to
know how much it would cost to


maintain the beach, parks and
tennis courts.
"My issue is we don't have a
plan.... The Assisted Care
Coalition had a very detailed
plan" before voters approved its
project for an assisted-living
facility on the Truman
Waterfront, Commissioner Teri
Johnston said.
"It's premature to have a plan
for something that's not ours,"
Mayor Morgan McPherson said,
mentioning, once again, his
vision of a "world-class park" on
the parcel. McPherson sponsored.
the ordinance, which originally
proposed putting the question on
the Aug. 26 primary ballot.

In Key West, voters must
approve of land sales or acquisi-
tions by the city.
Johnston didn't want the ref-
erendum on that ballot for fear of
attracting an uneven number of
Democrat and Republican vot-
ers; McPherson disagreed, say-
ing a nonpartisan county School
Board election is also on the bal-
lot and that timeliness was
important.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
also wanted some idea of what
McPherson planned to do with
the park, and said a general-elec-
tion referendum would make
more sense.
The commission agreed to put
the question on the Nov. 4 ballot.
Key West Garden Club treas-
urer Roger McVeigh told the
commission the club's had an
"excellent working relationship
with the county for years and
years." Environmental group
Last Stand also expressed appre-
hension in hastily pushing the
proposal without a clear-cut plan.
McPherson originally pro-
posed a similar initiative in
August of last year.
"We've had a dialogue on this
for quite some time," Planning


Board Chairman Richard
Klitenick said. "The city can do a
better job with this than the coun-
ty can ... they've made it a disas-
ter."
Klitenick has long been a pro-
ponent cleaning up the parks and
beaches on the property, includ-
ing the Astro City children's
park. He's described anecdotes to
the commission about family vis-
its to the area that have been
interrupted by harassment from
aggressive vagrants.
Klitenick even proposed in
September that park visitors over
age 18 not accompanying a child
be subject to fingerprinting and
screening to check for arrest war-
rants.
McPherson hopes to lease
some of the property to nonprof-
its such as the YMCA, Boys and
Girls Club and the Police
Athletic League. Those groups
could oversee the land and enact
trespassing regulations to legally
clear out vagrants, he said.
The commission still needs to
pass the second reading of the
ordinance before the ballot ques-
tion is sent to the Monroe County
Supervisor of Elections Office.

two men raped her on
Smathers Beach in Key West
Tuesday between 8 and 10
p.m., according to a Key West
police report. -
Police responded to call
from Lower Keys Medical

receiving attention. The vic-
tim said she was near a tiki
hut when the two men


approached her and offered
her alcohol. They drank
together "for a couple of
hours," the report says.
The victim said she was
walking down the beach with
the men when they pushed her

MIRIAM
BECKER GOOD,
born October 8, 1934
peacefully passed away at
her home on Lower
W " Sugarloaf Key Sunday
May 18, 2008 in the com-
pany of her loving family.
She is survived by her
. n .t immediate family, husband
Lloyd A. Good Jr., her two
daughters Caren Clare
Ward and Catherine Good Duncan, her two sons Lloyd A.
Good III, and John Becker Good, and her five granddaugh-
ters: Katchen Elizabeth Duncan, Jessica Alice Duncan, Clara
Christina Austin Ward, Emily Jane Good and Sara Alia Good-
Chanmugan, her brother Olaf Becker and sister Ingabord
Beidleman and family.

Miriam raised her family in Rydal Pennsylvania and spent
idyllic summers in Beach Haven, New Jersey. The Goods
arrived in the Lower Keys from Rydal in the fall of 1973 and
purchased the Sugarloaf Lodge. The family has operated the
Lodge ever since. Miriam was the friendly face who wel-
comed all guests to the lodge and its restaurant. She was
clearly both the heart and.soul of the Lodge and by far its most
tireless worker.

Miriam graduated valedictorian of Forty Fort High School
near Wilkesbarre, Pennsylvania in 1952. She attended Beaver
College near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and graduated with a
Bachelor of Arts degree specializing in painting. Her class-
mates crowned her Queen of the May in her senior year.

She remained a talented creative artist and gallerist and initi-
ated art classes with her friend Jim Salem at the Sugarloaf
Tiki. Miriam was a board member of the Red Barn Theatre
and the Ann McKee Artist Fund and was an active member of
Unity of the Keys. Her positive and enthusiastic outlook on
life impressed all she met and made her a truly unforgettable
member of the Keys community. She retained her youthful
beauty and charm throughout her life and will be greatly
missed by all who knew her.

Miriam's smile was radiant and always at the ready. Each of
her children felt that they were the most special. Each was
surrounded by her love and is still bathed in its glow. She was
Mim. She was Mom. She was Queen of the May. She was
Queen of Sugarloaf. She was Queen of our hearts. She is Big
Mama forever. She loved us. We loved her.

A service in her honor will be conducted by Unity of the Keys
at B'Nai Zion Synagogue at 750 United St. on Monday, May
26 at lpm and followed by a celebration of her life at the
Sugarloaf Lodge Restaurant at 6pm. All friends who knew
her are invited to attend the above.

Donations can be made in Miriam's name to the Red Barn
Theatre, The Ann McKee Artist Fund or Unity of the Keys.

Experienced
chef provides
wide variety
By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keynoter Contributor

When Raul Arguello was
planning the Breakers Cafe, his
new restaurant in Islamorada, he
didn't want to create an expen-
sive eatery that catered only to
tourists. Instead, he combined a
casual cafe with a gourmet bak-
ery, deli and wine shop to create


a multi-purpose space where
locals could afford to go several
times a week.
"I created the whole concept
with locals in mind," he said.
"You don't have to necessarily
come here to eat. You can enjoy
a cappuccino with a pastry, drink
a bottle of wine, pick up some
food or a pound of ribeye to
cook at home."
Arguello has been in the
restaurant business for more
than 20 years, working in vari-
ous South Beach restaurants and


at the Ritz-Carltons on Key
Biscayne and in Coconut Grove.
He bought the space for
Breakers two years ago when it
was the Argentinean restaurant,
Picci's, and began plans to
revamp the business.
"I was looking for a business
at the time, but not necessarily in
this area," he said. "I came here
and looked at Islamorada and
fell in love with it. I liked the
way the restaurant was set up.
This was the perfect size for
what I wanted to do."

Mako is a popular boat brand in the Florida Keys. In South Florida, boat sales are generally
down, mostly for smaller models.


Vessel sales veer off course


But larger
boats still
are selling
McClatchy Tribune


Across South Florida, boat
dealers have had the wind
knocked out of their sales as the
economic storm has left many
consumers struggling to stay
afloat.
Hardest hit are sales of small-


er entry-level boats, since would-
be boaters have cut spending.
For the first three months of
2008, unit sales of new recre-
ational sail and powerboats in
Browaid and Palm Beach coun-
ties fell 12 percent to 774, com-
pared with 882 sold during the
first quarter of 2007, according to
Miami market research firm Info-
Link Technologies Inc.
Nationwide, boat sales are
expected to fall about 8 percent


this year because consumer con-
fidence remains low and there's a
spillover effect from the lingering
housing crisis, said Thom
Dammrich, president of National
Marine Manufacturers
Association in Chicago.
Dammrich said dealers' com-
ments suggest there's a lot of
pent-up demand in the market as
people are looking at boats, but
it's harder to close the sale.
"As the economy improves,


Danielle Cockerham's

Milk and Honey
Islamorada

Milk and Honey, a new
jewelry store in Islamorada,
combines old world charm
with an island feel.
"I select unique items that
are timeless but a bit differ-
ent," o ner Danielle
Cockerham said. "I like fem-
inine pieces that ha\e a
bohemian vibe "
Cockerham earned her
retail chops as the ow ner of
the clothing boutique
Yasiine's in Islamorada for
10 years. She sold the shop
four years ago when her son.
Asher, was born.
"When I thought about
doing another store, jeew ehn
seemed like the natural
thing." she said. "Jew elr is

boat sales will improve," he said.
The tighter credit environment
has anchored sales for Joel
Feeger of Joel's Outboard Marine
in Fort Lauderdale.
"People want to buy but can't
get financing," Feeger said.
Year-to-date sales of the
$16,000 to $60,000 fishing and
powerboats he sells have been
lackluster, down about 20 percent
from the same period in 2007.
With an uptick in boat service
and repairs, business is still good,
he said.
To be sure, the news isn't all
bad for South Florida's recre-
ational boating industry.
Several marinas are expand-
ing, European yacht builders
have set up sales offices in the
region and big boats are selling
well, said Frank Herhold, execu-
.tive director of the Marine
Industries Association of South
Florida.

Big still sells
"The larger the boat, the
stronger the sales," Herhold said.
Still, at Palm Beach Gardens'
Upperdeck Yacht Sales Inc., sales
have slipped almost 50 percent'
compared with last year,
President Michael Ballard said.


Ballard said business from
European buyers has been strong,
boosted by a weak dollar, but
U.S. sales have fallen.
Upperdeck's powerboats are
priced from $200,000 to $1.5
million.
At Seven Seas Yacht Sales
Inc. in Fort Lauderdale, year-to-
date sales have also dropped
about 20 percent this year, com-
pared with the same period a year
ago, President Len Renne said.
Seven Seas sells fishing and
sailboats 35 feet and under,
priced from $14,000 to $600,000.
Despite the prevalence of
incentives and deals, there's a
"whole lot of hesitation'- from
buyers, Renne said.
Last year, the U.S. recreation-
al boating industry generated
$37.6 billion in annual sales,
compared with $39.5 billion in
2006, according to the national
marine association.
"It's a challenging buying
environment, but we're still sell-
ing boats," said Chuck Cashman,
vice president for Southeast
Florida for MarineMax, the
nation's largest recreational boat
and yacht retailer with 88 loca-
tions in 22 states.
Based in Pompano Beach,
Cashman oversees 11

sales have dropped about 30 per-
cent overall in 2008. Entry-level
and mid-range boats priced less
than $100,000 suffered most.

Ocean Reef ahead
But there are bright spots as
sales at MarineMax's Ocean Reef
and Pier 66 stores were ahead of
projections, Cashman said.
At Gaston's Seagate Marine
Sales Inc., a high-end dealer with
locations in Jupiter and Stuart,
sales are up 10 percent over last
year, owner Cal Gaston said.
Seagate Marine sells boats
made by EdgeWater, ShearWater
and Sterling from $20,000 to
$400,000.
Seventy percent of sales


comes from repeat customers and
referrals from affluent clients not
deterred by the cost of gas or the
economic slump, Gaston said.
At the 46-year-old Pompano
Beach Marine Center Inc., sales
have peaked 15 percent to 20 per-
cent over last year, President
Jerry Johnson said.
Johnson specializes in Grady-
White sportfishing boats -
known for their craftsmanship
and durability - priced from
$30,000 to $450,000. A strong
niche market and industry'reputa-
tion has keep business buoyant,
Johnson said.
Longtime client Todd Hersh
of Davie is considering trading
down from his 30-foot Grady-


White to a smaller model to save
on insurance, gas and storage
costs. These savings would "keep
boating fun," Hersh said, espe-
cially given the tough economic
climate.
As pump prices peak with
summer quickly approaching,
avid boaters like Hersh won't
likely be grounded.
Some may change their boat-
ing habits by going shorter dis-
tances or adjusting speeds, while
others might cut back on other
expenditures to enjoy boating.
"It'll take a lot more than $4 gas
prices to separate the Broward
recreational boater from his
favorite pastime," Herhold said.

Check a bag? That's $15


American adds
new fees for
most services
By INA PAIVA CORDLE
icordle@MiamiHerald.com

Grappling with sky-high fuel
prices and an economic down-
turn, Miami-based American
Airlines said it plans to cut
domestic flights, eliminate thou-
sands of jobs and raise fees,
including charging many domes-
tic passengers $15 for the first
checked bag.
American, the world's largest
airline, plans to cut domestic
flight capacity by 11. percent to
12 percent in the fourth quarter
and overall capacity by about 7
percent. American had previous-
ly expected fourth-quarter
capacity to fall 4.6 percent from
the same 2007 period.
Chief Executive Officer
Gerard Arpey didn't specify how
many jobs would be cut at
American and American Eagle,
which flies in Key West
International Airport, but
acknowledged the figure would


be in the thousands. He said the
cuts could lead to facility con-
solidations or closures.
American, which has its Latin
American and Caribbean hub at
Miami International Airport,
where it is the dominant carrier,
is one of South Florida's largest
employers, with 8,460 employ-
ees.
However, experts say the cuts
in flights and jobs are not
expected to affect South Florida
as much as other regions
because of the airline's prof-
itable Latin American hub.
American and American
Eagle command 68.2 percent of
the passenger traffic at MIA.
American said the $15 fee for
the first checked bag applies to
tickets purchased on or after June
15 and that it is raising other fees
for services beginning Wed-
nesday. The other fees range from
reservation help to oversized bags
and are up from $5 to $50 per
service.
Among them:
* Phone reservations rise
from $15 to $20.
* The fee to change a domes-


tic flight is now $150, up from
$100.
* The charge for a pet inside
the cabin rises to $100 from $80.
* Earlier this month,
American began charging $25
for second bags checked for
some passengers.
The fees are part of the indus-
try trend to unbundlee" services,
requiring passengers to pay for
up to anything but their seat on a
plane. Arpey said he expects the
fees will raise several hundred
million dollars, but said he did
not have a more specific figure.
"You're getting less and less
for your money," said Michael
Colangelo, 55, who was travel-
ing to New York from Miami
International Airport on
Wednesday.
"There is really not any dif-
ference between this [American]
and the discount airlines that are
giving you more service now
than the full-service airlines.
You're going to have more peo-
ple with carry-ons, which
becomes a mess in trying to
board the plane," he said. "It's
just going to make the whole
experience a lot worse than it is.'.
And it's getting worse anyhow."

doing all the things tourists come

maybe even earn credits toward a

year's camp will be bigger than
ever.
Not only will the program run
for five weeks instead of four, but
course offerings have expanded
thanks to the school's new $47
million campus being made
available by the School District.
Close to 150 students from
across the county will be able to
take courses in film, video tech-
nology, hospitality, tourism and
culinary arts.
In addition to a world-class
music faculty, this year's pro-


gram will also feature University
of Miami graduate film student
Mark Ruiz and Purdue
University graduate Mark
Segobiano, who has a master's
degree in restaurant, hotel and
tourism management and has
worked and taught in the field for
numerous years.
The program will run from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day,
from June 14 to July 19.
Enrollment is $400 per student,
with a limited number of spots
still available. Students from fifth
grade to high school seniors are
welcome, Belotti said.
High school kids and some
eighth-graders can earn up to six
credits toward a Florida Keys
Community College degree.
"It's a seven-period day and
it's kind of run like a college
campus," Belotti said, noting the
kids are even allowed to make
their own schedule to experience
different disciplines.
"We have 96 essays from last
year and not one of them didn't
like being in camp. It says a lot
when they decide not to lay
around and play with their iPods
and computers all summer," she

The spotlight's on kids this
summer when the

mer theater workshop for chil-
dren ages 7 to 17.
Cameron Murray and Daniel
Bonnett co-direct the program,
which runs from July 21 to Aug.
9. Both are known for their long-
time association with the Keys
Kids youth troupe and for their
work- on Key West stages.
Dubbed "Creature Feature,"
the workshop will take partici-

mals, enchanted objects and
magical creatures. The spotlight
will be on such popular musicals

"Suessical" and "The Jungle
Book."
The workshop will cover
training in all aspects of theater,
including voice, dance, acting,

and construction. The workshop
will culminate in a public per-
formance of a production to be
developed in the workshop.
Murray is artistic director for
Keys Kids and drama and the-
ater instructor at Key West High
School. Bonnett founded Keys
Kids and teaches and performs
in the Fort Lauderdale area.
Between them, they have staged

Kinkade discovers Duval, opens shop


Sloppy Joe's
is first to get
his treatment
T homas Kinkade, "painter
of light," now has a
gallery on Duval Street.
When I arrived in the 1970s,
the gallery scene was Marion
Stevens' largely Haitian art
gallery, the Key West Art Center
on Front Street and Richard
Heyman's Gingerbread Gallery
in its original location in the 900
block of
Duval.
Reen
Stanhouse
and I and a
c couple of
partners
opened the
Cayo
Hueso
S Graphics
gallery in
the 800
Judi Bradford block of
Duval,
which was mostly boarded up or
fallen down, and brought the
number of galleries to four.
Now Key West has Wyland,
Sottil, Goddard and probably
more franchise galleries and a
changing chessboard of local
artist galleries, including the Key
West Art Center, essentially
unchanged except without the
impresarial presence of Florence
Recher, and the Gingerbread in
its 1207 Duval location.
Kinkade's reproduction
gallery features a signed limited-
edition print of Key West. The
image is Sloppy Joe's Bar under
a sunset sky - well, I guess it's
a sunrise sky. Actually, the sun
appears to be in the south quad-
rant of the sky, so.I'm not sure.
The streets are wet, reflecting
street lights and the headlights of
the vintage cars. Hemingway
stands on the corer, manuscript
in hand. Two girls in very short
shorts stand nearby and a man in
a suit, shiny black shoes and a
hat rides a bike with fenders.
At www.kinkadegalleries
.com, the artist says "like many
visitors, I was attracted by its
small-town charm and vividly
colored tropical vistas." He says
he has hidden "a number of
world figures in my Key West
print" but identifies only
Hemingway. Perhaps the pur-
chaser gets a list. The artist talks


about the Key West image on
YouTube. Just type in his name,
hit search and then scroll down
to the print.
The Kinkade Web site is coy
about prices, but other print sellers
like www.art.com list the artist's
prints from $250 to more than
$2,000, available in paper, matted,
framed and framed canvas.
A 1994 print, "Beacon of
Hope," according to www
.artonthe web.com, was
reproduced in 6,955 prints (not
counting the puzzles, coffee cups
and other licensed merchandise).
At an average of the pricing
range, the multiplication comes

Trainer coming to Marathon


Mental-health
expert here
for three days

The Ohio headquarters of the
National Alliance on Mental
Illness is sending its top trainer to
the Keys to help the new NAMI-
Middle Keys, based in Marathon,
get off the ground.
Gini Lee Haffner, associate
director of programs for NAMI
Ohio, will conduct a series of
workshops to help teachers, par-
ents, Sheriff's Office deputies
and the general public to improve
their understanding of mental ill-
ness.
On June 2, Haffner will meet
with client family members at the
Guidance Clinic of the Middle
Keys, followed by an in-service
workshop for clinic staff.
On June 3, she will address an
audience of community leaders in
the Sheriff's Office hanger at
Florida Keys Marathon airport at
10 a.m.; the session is open to the
public.
On June 4, she will conduct
workshops for school and law
enforcement personnel.
Haffner serves as liaison to the
National Institute of Mental
Health. The past eight years, she
has developed dozens of mental-
health programs and made pre-
sentations at conferences all


around the country.
Her visit to the Keys came
about after Beverly Gottschalk,
president of NAMI-Middle Keys,
traveled to Columbus, Ohio, to be
trained as a support group facili-
tator. When Haffner learned there
are no support groups for families
of the mentally ill in the Keys,
she got funding for this Ohio-
Keys partnership.
NAMI-Middle Keys will
begin its first support groups for


family members of people strug-
gling with mental illness in
September. Monthly support and
educational meetings will be held
the second and fourth
Wednesday of each at 7 p.m. at
St. Columba Episcopal Church,
451 52nd St., Marathon.
Serving on the local organiza-
tion's board are Gottschalk,
Linda LaGrotte, Rev. Debra
Maconaughey, Cynthia
McKnight, Bob Peryam, Barbara
Paget, Laura Toman, David Rice
and Patricia Watts.

Red Cross plans
training in CPR

Although you must be certi-
fied in cardiopulmonary resusci-
tation to become a U.S. Coast
Guard-licensed charter captain,
it's easy to forget that you must
re-certify periodically.
Considering how many times
each year the Keys media
reports stories of medical emer-
gencies 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 Report in
Marathon May 31.
And it's not just for captains.
Individuals, 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.

Conch coach
returns but
on sidelines
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

At 62, Jerry Hughes, who has
returned as football coach at his
alma mater, Key West High
School, looks nostalgically at
the past but strives to change
with the times. There is, he said,
no other choice.
On the mangrove-bordered
spring practice field that held
about 30 red-helmeted teen-
agers, Hughes bore on
Wednesday afternoon the time-
less trappings of a lifelong
coach. A whistle was around his
creased, sun-screen-lathered
neck. He had on a T-shirt and
shorts and wore a flopov fishing


hat that was pulled down to dark
glasses.
The words that emerged
loudly from below a bristly mus-
tache were also timeless: "Don't
make the same mistake twice!"
"Hustle back, hustle back!"
And the young Conchs, who
will play their spring game
against Coral Springs Charter at
7 p.m. Friday at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium, hustled back
to the huddle.
This will be Hughes' second
tenure as Key West's coach. He
led the team into the playoffs in
1997 and '98, after which he
went on to coach at Miami-area
schools, the past five seasons at
Hialeah-Miami Lakes.

Former Cane
wrestles way
to success
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


After six years with the U.S.
Army's World-Class Athletes pro-
gram, Staff Sgt. James Johnson Jr.
decided to make a point.
"I. knew I could still wrestle,"
said Johnson, long the Army's top
Greco-Roman wrestler at the 132-
pound class.
Johnson, at age 26, was leaving
the Army's sports program, no


longer willing to constantly starve
himself to maintain an unnatural
weight.
So the Key Largo native and
former standout wrestler at Coral
Shores paid his own way to the
U.S. Greco-Roman National
Championships. He finished sixth
- at 163 pounds.
The top-seven national finish at
the April 22-24 event qualifies
Johnson to compete among the
sport's elite field at the U.S.
Olympic Trials in Las Vegas in
June. "This time, the Army's pay-
ing for the travel," he grinned.

OLYMPICS / From 42

"That was my best tournament
in two or three years," Johnson
said of his 4-1 record at the
National Championships. "Trying
to cut weight to stay at 132 really
affected me for the last couple
years. I can still wrestle but not at
132 pounds."
Johnson visited Key Largo this
week with wife Petra and daugh-
ters Keesha and Jada, while trans-
ferring from the Army wrestling
team's base at Colorado Springs,
Colo., to Fort Jackson in South
Carolina.
The move will take him from
essentially being assigned full-
time to Army athletics to a new
post as a drill sergeant.
"This is what I want to do
now," Johnson said. "I decided it
was time to do something different
and I'm looking forward to it. It
will let me teach younger guys and
share what I know."
Petra, who met Johnson while
he was stationed in her native
Germany, said the family wel-
comes the move.
"Colorado has four seasons and
sometimes you get all four in a sin-
gle day," she said. "And James was
suffering trying to lose weight all
the time."
Johnson nodded, "I couldn't eat
anything without gaining weight
so when I wasn't working out, I'd
sleep. That was the only thing that
kept me from being hungry."
He enlisted shortly after his
1999 Coral Shores graduation.
After basic training, he was
assigned to an artillery unit in
Germany. While there, other sol-
diers recognized his mat skills and
urged him to seek a spot with the
Army wrestling program.
Two years later, he earned a
spot with the World Class Athletes
program based at Colorado
Springs, home - of the U.S.
Olympic Training Center. He got
his own Army-issued trading card.
Johnson knew little about the
Greco-Roman style, which empha-
sizes standing throws and prohibits
trying to control an opponent's
legs.
He credits years of workouts
with his father, local martial-arts
instructor James Johnson Sr., for


As a wrestling-team member

"What set me apart from every-

martial arts," Johnson said.
"Working with my dad gave me
discipline and the willingness to
work."
The World-Class Athletes pro-
gram took the Army team to tour-
naments throughout the country,
and events in Germany, Finland
and Turkey.
Johnson was the U.S. Armed
Forces champion in his weight
class in 2006 and finished second
in the U.S. World Team Trials in
2005.
Army athletes also take part in
recruitment talks at high schools
and colleges. "It's to show there's
a lot more to the Army than going
to the Iraq," said Johnson.
Sometimes at the college level,
he smiled, they took on the school
team. "We went after 'em a little to
show we could wrestle, too."
He has increased his weightlift-
ing to beef up for his second try at
an Olympic spot, after also quali-
fying for the trials in 2004.
Johnson said he plans to retire
from the Army, and could eventu-
ally return to the World-Class
Athletes program.

A kick-off party and rules
meeting are to be held June

HUGHES / From 42

* and the fact that fewer kids
were interested in playing foot-
ball, Hughes decided to retire
from Miami-Dade County and
return to his hometown.
The Conch coaching job had
suddenly opened when Robert
James (four seasons, 19-18
record) resigned last December.
Hughes was offered the job in
February.
"I think we have enough tal-
ent to be competitive," he said
later in his cluttered office,
while, in the nearby locker
room, players chattered loudly
in the euphoria that accompanies
the end of a practice. "Our goal
is to win more games than we
lose." 4
The most talented of the
Conchs appear to be the senior-
to-be running back Alfred
Rahming ("He'll run over you,
he'll hurt you," Hughes said)
and junior-to-be Phillip Young, a
starter last season who will play
quarterback and wide receiver.
Clinton McCoy, who will be
a sophomore, and Steve Jones,
who will be a junior, will also
compete at quarterback, and
David Lee is a promising senior-
to-be wide receiver.
Hughes, who believes that
three games are won each season
because of the kicking game,
expects to use two strong-legged
soccer players, Trevoi Gordon
and Cale Hartle, as place-kicker
and punter, respectively.
Spring, though, is too early to
know who will line up in late


summer's first regular-season
game, but it's a good time for
veteran coaches to reflect on
their careers. And Hughes is a
man of deep introspection.
"Things have changed, man,"
he said, thinking back to the
early '60s when he was a Conch
defensive end and thrillingly
charged onto the field through
the marching band, an atmos-
phere he'd like to re-create.
"We'd get 6,000 people out
there. People don't believe that
but it's the truth. It was a Navy
town then with not much to do.
Now people would rather to the
Duval crawl than show Conch
pride. It's not the same."
For Hughes, the Xs and Os
are always overshadowed by the
difficulty of getting through to
the modem-day, set-in-their-
ways adolescents.
"My dad drummed into me,
'College education, college edu-
cation,' " he said. "Today, kids
don't plan ahead. They want
instant gratification and if they
don't get it, they quit."
"As a coach, if you can't
change with the times, you have
to get out," he went on. "I think
I have changed. I've mellowed
but I'm also fair. You've got to
be a damn psychologist. And the
home lives of some of these kids
is so bad you start to feel sorry
for them."
Hughes takes pride in helping
players get college scholarships.
"The most gratifying time is on
signing day," he said, "to know
that kids.will get their education
paid for and have a chance to get
ahead."
