Accidents,

SIt might have been a holiday
for everyone else, but Monroe
County Sheriff's Office deputies
and Florida state troopers were
busy over the Memorial Day
weekend with a slew of traffic
accidents and citations in the
Keys.
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin said there
were 26 accidents between
Friday and Monday, not counting
those in parking lots or those
involving boats. The Traffic Unit
alone wrote 350 citations over
the three-day weekend and
investigated 11 crashes, she said.
According to the Sheriff's
Office Web site, nine drunk-driv-
ing arrests were made and two
for failure to submit to DUI test-
ing. Herrin said the arrests were
"fairly average for a busy week-
end."

The Marathon City Council
reiterated its desire Friday to
purchase Boot Key outright
rather than repair the failing
bridge leading to it, directing
staff to contact the island's three
parcel owners about acquiring
their land.
The council also favored a
staff recommendation by
Finance Director Peter Rosasco
to perform another appraisal of
the island.
An earlier appraisal done by
Waronker & Rosen Inc. was
released early last month. It val-
ues the island at $3.4 million
with bridge access and $1.47
without.
"The city should consider not
hanging its hat on one appraisal
and should consider a second.
The owners are going to have
their own and some people who
have seen it seem to think it
would behoove us to have anoth-
er one to support it," Rosasco
said.
One owner, Keys Radio


Group owner Joe Nascone, has
threatened to sue the city if it
chooses not to repair the bridge.
Nascone's property was the only
one to lose significant value -
$2.42 million versus $605,000
- without bridge access. He has
not returned calls for comment
on the matter.
Mayor Pete Worthington
voiced concern over the city not
providing access to the island
except temporary ferry service
that no longer operates.
"We've been providing
Nascone with zero support; .my
fear is we're building a case for
him," he said.
"We did offer regular services
for days and apparently they
weren't interested," City
Attorney Jimmy Morales said,
pointing out the city subsidized
the water taxi that went largely
unused.
Estimates as high as $10 mil-
lion have .been floated for the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation to repair the 50-year-
old Boot Key Bridge. Traffic on


it any kind - even pedestrian -
was halted permanently Dec. 3
after city officials received a let-
ter from DOT declaring the span
a safety hazard and calling for its
immediate closure.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said repairing the bridge at that
cost is no longer practical.
"The price tag has gotten to
be so astronomical, I'm at the
point of trying to make it an
island without a bridge and the
city can own it and make it a
nice attraction for the communi-
ty," he told the Keynoter.
Cinque suggested the city
negotiate a land-for-building
rights trade with Barry Yampol,
who owns 99 percent (1006.11
acres) of the island's privately
owned land. Nascone owns 9.57
acres and Marathon Wireless
Communications Inc. owns 1.68
acres.
"I think Yampol would be
interested in giving us 95 per-
cent of his property in exchange
for some of our development
rights. If we can preserve it for
basically zero, I think it's a win-
win," Cinque said.


Weekend's wild on the water


WEEKEND / From 1

State marine officers also
reported a man died aboard a boat
in the Dry Tortugas over the
weekend, but he apparently died
of natural causes in his sleep. His
death was not listed as a boating
or dive accident.
Meanwhile, a crowd estimat-
ed at up to 3,000 boats filled the
Sandbar anchoring spot off
Islamorada Sunday, but marine
officers say serious incidents
were few in Keys waters during
the weekend.
"It was a typical Memorial
Day weekend, which means it
was chaos. But it was controlled
chaos," said Officer Bobby Dube,
spokesman for the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission. "It was manageable."
"It was a very big crowd at the
Sandbar," said Capt. Don Fanelli,
Islamorada commander for the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
"But overall, our calls for service
were down. It was a pretty good
crowd."
Two serious boating accidents
were reported.


One man suffered critical head
injuries and was airlifted to a
Miami trauma center after a boat
crashed into a Florida Bay chan-
nel marker around 10 p.m..
Saturday while returning from
the Sandbar.
The vessel, a Robalo estimat-
ed at 25 feet long, ran aground
near the Cowpens north of Key
Largo, FWC Lt. Keith Barcomb
reported. It stayed there for sever-
al hours until a towboat pulled it
free.
By then, the night was dark.
The operator apparently attempt-
ed to follow the towboat back to
shore but the boat slammed into
channel marker 59.
"We don't know yet how fast
he was going but probably faster
than he should have," Barcomb
said. "It was dark and the vessel
did not have a spotlight." *
The boat was carrying seven
or eight people, reportedly from
Miami and Hialeah. Other people
aboard were treated for injuries at
Mariners Hospital and released.
Names were not available at
press time.
No charges were filed pending
additional investigation. A blood


sample was taken from the boat
operator for alcohol testing.
Officers were needed to break
up a fight or two, Barcomb said,
and issued more than 60 boating
citations. Four people were
arrested for boating under the
influence.
Meanwhile, Melanie M.
Ferras, 19, of Miami was arrested
for resisting arrest twice in two
days, the second time only hours
after her release from the Monroe
County Detention Center.
She was taken into custody
late Saturday after an incident
near Hog Heaven in Islamorada
when she reportedly gave a false
name to deputies. She was
released from jail shortly before
noon Sunday.
FWC officers took her into
protective custody at the Sandbar
Sunday afternoon. Back at the
FWC base on Whale Harbor,
Ferras reportedly fought with
officers and ran off a dock into
the channel.
"She was still in handcuffs,"
Barcomb said. "One of our guys
had to go in after her." A charge
of felony escape was added.

Munoz, 21, continued to
swerve dangerously before com-

report says. It says Munoz was
drunk and a check of his record
revealed three prior DUI arrests,
one of which he was still on pro-
bation for.
At 5:50 p.m. Sunday, deputies
received calls about a red BMW
weaving in and out of traffic near

refused to stop and finally pulled
over at mile marker 101.
The report states Rodriguez
made "a number of strange com-
ments" to deputies, including
saying she "never has to stop for

things incomprehensible to
deputies on the scene."
Another accident in Tavemier
Saturday led to 18-year-old


Islamorada resident Rachel
Zinner being transported to

According to a Florida
Highway Patrol report, Zinner
was crossing the median cutover

Velasquez was approaching the

states.
Zinner's car flipped and col-

Letter-writing campaign starts


DOT / From I

DOT engineers told the County
Commission last week. The
agency also acknowledged the
wide shoulder's main function is
to serve as an emergency hurri-
cane-evacuation lane..
David Cohn of Tavemier also
wrote to Crist, and his circulated
letter apparently triggered mis-
sives from others. Cohn
described the project as "a waste
of time [and] money and is dis-
turbing our residents and busi-
ness owners alike."
Jerry Wilkinson, president of
the Tavernier Community
Association, said "individual


communities have protested this
dangerous [project]. It is against
Florida law to drive on a shoulder
but vehicles 'constantly do for
passing-on-the-right."
At last week's commission
meeting, Upper Keys Com-
missioner Sylvia Murphy pre-
sented a resolution calling for the
wider shoulder to be dropped
from DOT's work plan to repave
the highway.
Commissioners debated the
proposals but eventually agreed
to table the matter until DOT
returns in August with more
detailed plans.
The so-called fifth lane would
go from mile marker 92 to 106,
with some narrow gaps.

"The DOT basically agreed
they are not going to do anything
physically," Murphy said. "They
wanted a little more time to put
their plan together."
Murphy said the agency also
should devise a better rationale
for the project. "Every reason
they have come up with for this
simply does not hold water," she
said.
While DOT engineers have
said the emergency-only lane
would help speed hurricane evac-
uation, critics contend bottle-
necks in Islamorada, parts of Key
Largo and Florida City render the
added pavement useless.
Murphy said DOT already has
backed off a claim made at an
April meeting of the Tavernier
Community Association that the
state Department of Community
Affairs instigated the wide-shoul-
der plan.
"After they said that, every-
body started calling DCA,"
Murphy said. "The DCA is wash-
ing their hands of it. They say it's
a local issue."
DOT engineers have said the
widening adds less than $2 mil-
lion to the overall $21 million
cost of the paving.

Fishery panel to get Keys earful


Proposed closed
season among
chief concerns
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys fishermen plan
to take their concerns about
sweeping gear changes to feder-
al fishery managers, meeting
June 8 to 13 in Orlando.
The main concern of both
recreation anglers and commer-
cial fishermen headed for the
South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council session
are a proposed four-month ban
on catching most grouper
species and a requirement to use
circle hooks for snapper and
grouper.
Council staff says that to pro-
tect gag grouper, the agency
should immediately adopt a
closed season from January to
April.
Few Keys fishermen took
much note since gag grouper are

They did that with sailfish."
Snapper-grouper discussions
will be held at the council com-
mittee level the afternoon of
June 11 and the morning of June
12.
The full council meets at 4
p.m. June 12 to consider the
snapper-grouper proposals. A
public-comment period opens at
4:15 p.m.


The meeting takes place in
the Renaissance Orlando Airport
Hotel, 5445 Forbes Place.
Kelly said charter-fishing
interests also would ask the
council to create a statistical cat-
egory for their industry.
"We've been pushing this for
a decade," Kelly said. "We're
talking about 1,800 charter oper-
ations in the council's jurisdic-
tion."
Fishery management is


expected to begin using individ-
ual fishing allocations to replace
many catch limits. Commercial
fishermen would get higher allo-
cations since their livelihood is
dependent on fishing.
"If the council puts the for-
hire charter industry under the
recreational rules, we're dead,"
Kelly said. "We need our own
classification. People's jobs
depend on it."

Finding sewer operators

a growing dilemma

During a workshop last week, Marathon City Councilman
Don Vasil proposed the city explore the idea of turning over all
sewer operations to the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority.
The timing for his idea may have seemed a bit odd, since the
council was expected to act on a resolution Tuesday night to
acquire the Little Venice sewer plant built by the Aqueduct
Authority in Marathon as a demonstration project.
Since then, Marathon has embarked on the Keys' most ambi-
tious wastewater construction program. Earlier doubts and
foot-dragging appeared to have been finally put to rest.
Some now believe Vasil may be back-pedaling as he hears
more complaints about the coming cost of hookups from resi-
dents who have not yet faced up-front hookup charges, which
will range from $5,749 to $6,692 per household.
But his question about the practical aspects of finding sewer-
plant operators is one that deserves a much larger hearing and
not just in Marathon.
The village of Islamorada is struggling with costs at its
Plantation Key sewer plant, which is run by US Water.
Early this month, Islamorada's new village manager, Ken
Fields, supported the idea of hiring full-time staff to run the
plant.
And "we're starting to see signs of backups again," the vil-
lage's director of Public Works and Utilities told the council.
"We're running a part-time utility."
That last is a key component: After all these Keys sewer
plants are built to meet the state's July 2010 deadline to have
advanced wastewater treatment in place, who will actually run
the things?
In Islamorada, US Water gets $273,145 a year to keep the
plant operating with a part-time technician.
Islamorada's utility director wants permission to hire three
full-time treatment plant workers, which brought fire from
some on the council.
Fast-forward to when Marathon has four or five plants to run,
and can you imagine the angst that awaits? Picture the late-
night calls if one of the vacuum pits backs up in someone's
home, which happened in Islamorada.
No wonder Vasil is eyeing having the FKAA run Marathon's
sewer plants. Directors of the FKAA are appointed by the gov-
ernor - they don't have to run for reelection.
Given the difficulty of finding and keeping teachers, police,
fire and medical specialists in the high-cost Keys, we expect to
be hearing much more about the many challenges of finding
sewer-plant operators, especially as cities and the county con-
tinue moving forward on the 2010 deadline.

Former motel site should be passive park


EDITOR:
Let's see: A 130-seat auditorium, a museum
with permanent and temporary exhibit space and
an outdoor plaza with statues and plaques com-
memorating Islamorada's sportfishing history at
the old Southwinds Motel property near mile
marker 82. Is there anything missing? Hmm.
Parking? Since few people carpool to a facil-
ity designed for that many, you're looking at 50
to 75 off-street parking spaces. Would there be
ingress or egress to and from the Old Highway
and U.S. 1? Increased traffic on the Old
Highway? Probably.
The auditorium/museum building would need
accessible bathrooms, offices) and storage and
mechanical space. Would it be a two-story
building? Which use would be on the second
floor? Add an elevator, stairway(s), bathrooms
and more storage and mechanical space.
All total, including adequate stormwater
retention and landscaping, you get a 1.1-acre
site that is, in a word, overdeveloped.
Seems contrary to what was a rallying cry
leading up to Islamorada's' incorporation in the
first place: Stop the overdevelopment of com-
mercial property between the Old Highway and
U.S. 1.
With the ink barely dry on a contract to build
a fire station and village offices (good choices,


to be sure) and construction of several projects
currently under way at Founder's Park, why is
the Village Council intent on adding a new proj-
ect to its building program? Aren't there any
existing vacant commercial structures that could
be modified for use as an auditorium and muse-
um?
Why not create a passive park at the
Southwinds site that is largely open space, with
a few statutes, plaques and walkways, some
tables and benches where folks can play chess
or dominoes, or eat a bag lunch within walking
distance of work? And bike racks. Use the exist-
ing landscaping and plant more indigenous
species. Make it a garden.
Granted, it's a lot more fun dreaming about
future amenities like those being considered
than the less-glamorous infrastructure needs that
face the village now.
With limited financial resources and limited
open space, it seems that, to an outside observer,
the overriding, single-minded capital improve-
ment project should be villagewide sewage
treatment to meet the unique geography of
Islamorada. That is redevelopment that ends up
largely unseen and, hopefully, odorless.
My 2 cents, for what it's worth.

Donations can can go a long way toward helping children


EDITOR:
The Inez Martin Child Development Center
has been educating, nurturing and protecting
children in Key West since 1927 and allows the
critically needed working families of Monroe
County to place their children in a safe and
enriching environment while they work and
allow this community to continue functioning.
My own mother benefited from the summer
programs offered at Inez Martin when she was
growing up, and was fortunate enough to have
been taught by Inez Martin herself. The stimulat-
ing environment of the center helped to foster her
growth and she in turn was able to use those les-
sons in her work with the Monroe County school
system and in raising me.
As you are probably aware, Wesley House
Family Services is in the process of raising funds
through our Building for Children campaign for
the renovation of the Inez Martin Child
Development Center. The budget for this project
is $1.35 million and the community has been
extremely generous thus far in donating and
pledging more than $1 million. As we prepare to
welcome the children to their new facility in
July, we still need your help.
Wesley House received a capital match grant
from the Eckerd Family Foundation that chal-
lenged the organization to raise $200,000 at the
local level for our campaign. Currently, we need
to raise an additional $147,516 to be able to take
full advantage of this matching grant.
I understand you have choices where your
charitable dollars are spent and that those choices
are becoming more difficult with the state of the
economy. Whether your interest is in children,or,
in, the working families that are often taken for , i


granted in our community, your contribution will
help nurture children, support the workforce, and
make Key West a better community now and in
the future. You also have the added benefit that
any donation you make will be doubled by the:
Eckerd matching grant.
Contributions can be mailed to Wesley House
Family Services, care of Building For Children,
1304 Truman Ave., Key West, FL 33040; or you
may call 809-5000 to make a donation or pledge.
Thank you in advance for your consideration
and support of Wesley House Family Services
and our campaign to rebuild the Inez Martin
Child Development Center.

DOT ignores public's view on road


EDITOR:
Once again, Upper Keys res-
idents met with state
Department of Transportation
representatives to defend their
views concerning DOT's plans
to create an additional lane, or
shoulder as they call it for tech-
nical reasons, on northbound
U.S. 1 intermittently between
mile markers 93 and 106.
Based on close questioning
by residents, it continues to be
apparent that what DOT plans
to do at a minimum cost of $21
million is ill conceived, illogi-
cal and not in the best interest
of the public.
In a presentation given by
Tavernier resident John
Hammerstrom, a leading cham-
pion for people's rights, he doc-
umented why this state
agency's reasons for construct-
*ing a 10-foot-wide paved lane
or shoulder were not valid.
Included were evacuation, safe-
ty and they are in direct viola-
tion of the Monroe County
comprehensive plan. Of course,
to this writer was the absence


of Emergency Management and
state Department of
Community Affairs officials.
who will make the final deci-
sion whether to approve based
on input from DOT.
It becomes incumbent on we
the public to pursue an aggres-
sive lobbying effort to prove a
10-foot paved addition is not
warranted by any definition, be
it a lane or a shoulder. Please
make your views known by

What was McCoy thinking?

And Guiterrez is back?


It seemed that when Sonny McCoy
stepped down as Monroe County mayor last
week, the 2008 election season could get no
more strange.
It has, as Sal Guiterrez is now back in the
Keys political arena, running for the District
5, or Key Largo, County Commission seat
he has previously unsuccessfully sought.
He lists his address as a post-office box in
Tavernier, which seems odd for a commis-
sion candidate. I thought he had moved
from the Keys to Tampa long ago. I know
he moved somewhere because on March 23,
2007, he cancelled his Monroe voter regis-
tration citing "moving out of county" as the
reason.
Three weeks ago, on May 9, he registered
to vote here again, using that post-office box
as his address. His application
needed time to get through the
system and it did. On May 15, he
filed to run with no party affilia-
tion against, so far, Com-
missioner Sylvia Murphy and
Gary Bauman, both Republicans.
Candidate qualifying is the
week of June 16.
Gutierrez has been through this
before. In 2004, he ran as a
Republican against then-
Commissioner Murray Nelson,
also a member of the GOP. Larry
Gutierrez received a whopping Keynot
28 percent of 4,460 votes in that
year's primary, sending him into
that political good night.
Gutierrez ran a campaign that could hardly
be called civil. He's gruff, a fervent proper-
ty-rights advocate who often accuses local
government and residents of pure evil. So
this should be fun.
Back to McCoy. He surprised everyone as
the monthly County Commission meeting
closed in the early evening of May 21 when
he declared he was naming Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro mayor and replacing Di
Gennaro as vice mayor.
The Republican McCoy said Di Gennaro
is friends with the governor and others in
state government, so it makes sense for Di
Gennaro to be the top local official.
Actually, it makes no sense at all when
you are running for re-election against three
other people who want your seat, one of
whom could send you packing in the August
primary.
Surely, stepping aside in the heat of a
campaign will be pounced upon by those
who would replace him as a sign he either
can'tor doesn't want to lead anymore. Most


people running for office would use the
mayoral post to their advantage, citing lead-
ership.
And so it goes, just another election cycle
in the Keys. We still have some time for
more candidates to come out of the wood-
work and others to do something surprising.
Seems the odds are pretty good on both
counts.

Revenue down
for the year
in many areas
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The downturn in the housing
market has brought a downturn
in property value assessments,
Key West Finance Director
Roger Wittenberg says.
That means an expected
$450,000 drop in property tax
revenue from the $14.6 million
expected for 2007-08, he said.
And that will bring further
belt-tightening, Wittenberg said
during his May 20 report to the
City Commission city finances
from October to March. Either
city expenses will have to be
streamlined or new sources of
revenue unearthed, he said.
Realtor and Key West
Chamber ' of Commerce
President Bascom Grooms said
he thinks that once people begin
to learn about the benefits of
Amendment 1, a voter-approved
tax-reform amendment to the
state Constitution, "it will be a
definite boost to the Real Estate
market."
Amendment 1 doubles the
homestead exemption, allows
the transfer of the 3 percent cap


on annual assessments for home-
steaded property to replacement
homes and gives part-time resi-
dents a 10 percent cap on annual
assessment increases on non-
homesteaded residences.
Grooms says there are some
signs of the market recovering.
"We're seeing a lot more buy-
ers locally and from other areas
looking at our real estate," he
said.
But that did little to offset
losses seen in other revenue
streams, including declines in
cruise ship fees and a slowdown
in Building Department fees,
according to city revenue fig-
ures.
"I think the lack of revenue is
just indicative of the economy as
a whole right now," Grooms
said. "We're expecting a decline
in the summer because of $4 gas
prices."

Cruise ships down
'This fiscal year, about
109,359 fewer cruise-ship pas-
sengers are expected to hit the
island's shops, bars and restau-
rants than last year. The city
shows current losses of passen-


ger fees at $140,000.
The city expects 100,303
passengers to arrive at the Key
West Bight and 65,972 at the
Outer Mole for the remainder of
the year. No ships are expected
to dock at Mallory Square.
Carnival Cruise Lines'
Celebration canceled 23 trips to
Mallory Square - a loss of
34,000 passengers, or $252,000
in revenue. The Norwegian Gem
cancelled 10 of its trips to the
Outer Mole - a loss of $65,450
in revenue.
"We need to look for addi-
tional sources of revenue," City
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
said. "We need to -firm up any
commitments we have with the
cruise ship industry."
The first quarter of the year
did well despite a projected loss
in cruise passengers, Port
Director Raymond Archer said.
Outside forces can help the busi-
ness.
Storms sometimes bring in
unplanned ship visits. In August,
Hurricane Dean rerouted several
ships to Key West, providing a
financial boost.

Business reporter Sam Nissen

That must be some
good nugget sauce

A fight broke out Friday after-
noon in Key West over chicken-
nugget dipping sauce.
City police say two men
approached Wendy's fast-food
counter on North Roosevelt
Boulevard and grew "irate" over
the nugget sauce, flailing their
hands about aggressively.
The report says a Wendy's
employee told the two men he


would not serve them again if
they gave him an attitude, andthe
men reached across the counter,
grabbed him and punched him in
the face, police say. Then they
fled.
One man was about 5 feet, 7
inches tall with dark hair and
highlights. The other was 5 feet,
8 inches with a solid build and
tattoos.
It's unknown whether the sus-
pects took the nugget sauce when
they left.

Cemetery

project

wraps up

The findings
are presented
Thursday night
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com
The headless angel statue
above Rosa Navarro's tombstone
in the Key West Cemetery will be
restored in June, as have already
many other structures, fences and
decor among the historic
gravesites.
Margo Stringfield, a
researcher from the University of
West Florida in Pensacola, has
grown accustomed to the ceme-
tery due to a $300,000 state grant
intended to fund preservation
projects in the Old Town site.
Since the 1960s, the Navarro
statue has stood without a head
that matches its original.
Stringfield and other faculty
in the university's Archeology
Department will present the
work they've completed
Thursday at 6 p.m. in Old City
-Hall, 510 Greene St.
Stringfield said she started
with a preservation plan and sur-
vey that distinguished gravesites
that draw tourists and visitors,
such as the William Curry monu-
ment, and other areas that badly
needed attention. Stringfield and
her team drew up a plan.of which
sites they would approach.
Through November to
January, the team tackled cast
iron fences, cement and rubber
structures.
"We had a master mason that
worked on the brick, mortar and
cement pieces," Stringfield said.
"Although there has been survey
work in the cemetery ... there had
not been any restoration work
.done."
According to Stringfield, Key
West's cemetery is unique in that
its tombstones and other pieces
use a wide variety of materials,
which also presents challenges,
as it's not wise to mix materials
together.
According to Stringfield, such
restoration projects are critical,
as cemeteries "chronicle the his-
tory of your conunurtiB' . .

Sat prevention
By RYAN McCARTHY


rmccarthy@keynoter.com


It happened again: A
Marathon home broken into
because a door was left unlocked.
A 24th Street home was bur-
glarized early Monday morning,
the latest in a string of crimes
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Becky Herrin said
was easily preventable.
According to a Sheriff's
Office report, the burglar entered
the home after the owner left his
door open as he slept. The victim
awoke when his dog began bark-
ing, but caught only a glimpse of
the intruder as he ran out the
door.



m ake O sil.


"The most important thing
about crime prevention is be
smart. If you're leaving the house
or car, lock it and make sure your
family is safe," Herrin said. Most
of the recent burglaries were of
unlocked homes and cars."
Last month, several unlocked
homes were broken into in the
neighborhood behind the Office
Depot plaza. At the other end of
town, the same thing happened to
more than a dozen cars around
the same time.
To address the rash of inci-
dents, the Sheriff's Office has
planned a series of crime-preven-
tion educational events to be held
around the city.
The Sheriff's Office will
begin by hosting an event
Thursday at the Sheriff's Office
airplane hangar at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport from 5 to 7
p.m.
"We're looking for this to give
people an opportunity to be one
on one with us and ask us what-
ever questions they want and
maybe give us some informa-
tion," Capt. Bob Peryam said.
"This is starting to become more
of a crime of opportunity. If peo-
ple can just walk in and get some-
thing, some are likely to do that."
Peryam said the Sheriff's
Office will continue to map prob-
lem neighborhoods and "strategi-
cally. assign manpower in those


areas.
The Sheriff's Office Mobile
Command Post will also be in
several locations in the coming
weeks to give out crime-preven-
tion information and have staff to
answer questions about how to
avoid becoming a victim.
It will be at the Home Depot
parking lot in Marathon June 7

City starts budget planning


Retreat set
for today at
-Old City Hall
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

STo pick brains without violat-
ing the state's Sunshine Law, Key
West city commissioners will lis-
ten to residents and department
heads today about concerns over
the city's future and ways to cope
with budgetary hardships.
It's being called a retreat and
will provide an open discussion
*without breaking the law that
requires government officials to
discuss legislative items and res-
olutions within the transparency
of a public forum.
"With our Sunshine Laws in
this state, its very difficult to dis-
cuss strategic plans with each
other," City Manager Jim Scholl
said.
Scholl also said that from 9
a.m. to 3 p.m. in Old City Hall,
510 Greene St., the commission
will begin to formulate a strategic
plan for the difficult budget times
ahead, while hearing suggestions
and lobbying from those attend-
ing.
Scholl said the discussion
would include "everything from
Duval Street issues to parking to
affordable housing to morale
training, homeless issues, staffing
and performance niedetiIient,'"


City Planner Amy Kimball-
Murley said she wants to discuss
beefing up her skeletal staff,
which consists of two other plan-
ners and an administrative assis-
tant.
"I'm going to lay down what
it's going to cost to update our
plans ... which includes getting
some consultant help or hiring
more staff," she said.
That department is in the
midst of drafting a new ordinance
that would determine how build-
ing permits are distributed. Until
recently, the state has issued per-
mit allocations under the rate-of-
growth ordinance. The number of
allocations allowed, determined
by the state, was dictated by the
state Department of Community
Affairs.
Kimball-Murley understands
hiring more city employees will
be difficult considering the tough
budget year and talk of cutbacks.
Salaries account for 70 percent of
the city's expenses.
"The budget and its stability is
everybody's primary concern,"
Scholl said.
He added that environmental-
ly friendly initiatives are also top
concerns that will add costs but
benefit the city in the long run.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage,
the commission's financial
watchdog, says costs need to be
cut and cautioned against propos-
ing ne\\ taxes. :


"I just think we need to do a
better job of controlling costs,"
Kolhage said. "I just feel like we
need to adopt the mentality: If
you can't afford it, you can't
afford it."

Luxury yachts, stories don't add up


Five jailed
in separate
theft cases
By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@MiamiHerald.com

The U.S. Coast Guard spotted
the 38-foot Fountain sportfishing
boat adrift in the Florida Straits
this week, its 300-gallon gas tank
dry.
The two men aboard said they
had been lured for a ride by two
bikini-clad women eight days
earlier. They all had drank
Heinekens - or was it Coronas?
- and when they woke from


their drunken stupor the women
were gone and they were out to
sea.
Two weeks previously, the
Coast Guard found three men
aboard a 50-foot Sea Ray sport
yacht, afraid their broken GPS
device had let them accidentally
drift into Cuban waters.
The men said they were off
course of their mission: To deliv-
er the $645,000 vessel to Cancun,
Mexico, on behalf of the owner.
The Coast Guard didn't buy
either story.
The five men, all Cuban, were
taken to the Monroe County
Detention Center, arrested on


Ark

first-degree felony charges of
grand theft.
U.S. Coast Guard spokes-
woman Jennifer Johnson said
stolen boats cruising in waters
between the Keys and Cuba
could be due to many reasons,
"but often are used for smug-
gling."
The 38-footer is registered to
Ned Timmer of Michigan; the 50-
footer belongs to Peter R. Daniels
of Pinecrest. Both men say their


vessels were stolen.
On May 20, a Customs and
Border Protection plane spotted
the Fountain- drifting about 46
miles south of the Marquesas, a
group of islands near Key West.
The Coast Guard cutter Shamal
responded, discovering the
$370,000 boat was out gas and
reported stolen.
Aboard were Victor
Figueredo, 48, of Naples, and
Carlos Viera, 24, of Miami.


Speaking Spanish, they told
Coast Guard investigators they
were good friends. Trouble was,
they didn't know each other's last
names.
Now the trouble is, they're
charged with felony grant theft.
The Sea Ray was found May
-24, also off the Marquesas.
Charged in its theft are Jose
Castroman, 41, of Hialeah;
Fernando Fernandez, 36, a chiro-'
practor assistant in Miami; and
Jose Gil, 41, a self-employed
truck driver in Miami.

Thousands left

Severe weather in Florida City
is the cause of a Saturday power
outage in the Keys, according to
Keys Energy Services.
About 3:50 p.m., a fault
occurred on the main electrical
transmission line along the 18-
Mile Stretch. As a result, local
generation Keys Energy Services
was running for voltage support
(standard operating procedure to
supplement the power transmit-
ted through the transmission dur-
ing the hot summer months when
usage is up) was knocked offline.
As a result of the local gener-
ation going offline, about 50 per-
cent of Keys Energy feeders
were knocked out (about 13,000
customers). Power was finally
restored to all about 5:10 p.m.
How many Florida Keys

Food costs eat profits


All feeling
major pinch
in the Keys
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com


In the Keys, those not already
hosed by rising gasoline costs
are getting jammed by rising
food costs.
Basic food prices are up


across the board, limiting profit
to be had in related businesses
countywide.
"I've been in the restaurant
industry 27 years and this is the
highest pricing pressure. I've
seen in my career," said John
Littriello, part owner of the Big
Pine Restaurant with his wife
Samantha.
That pressure doesn't leave
any wiggle room, he said.


"If one particular category,
let's say milk, eggs and beef,
would be up, then something
else would be down and you
could offset your costs by run-
ning a special on pasta or chick-
en," Littriello said. "But every-
thing's up considerably. I'll be
honest with you: I feel the walls
closing in."
The increases are across the
board, not just in specialty items.

'MAC Daddy' pays Keys visit


Mobile centers
help businesses
after storms
By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@MiamiHerald.com

For more than two years, two
recreational vehicles purchased
with $168,000 in state funds have
yet to be used for their primary
purpose.
In this case, that's a good


Thing.
The 38-foot RVs, converted
into satellite-equipped Mobile
Assistance Centers, nicknamed
MACs, were designed to respond
to disaster sites with the mission
to help small businesses recover
quickly.
"We won't be pulling limbs
out of the way," said Jerry
Cartwright, director of the Small
Business Development Center
Network that operates the MACs.


"We are the second wave, after
the first responders. Like the
American Red Cross handing out
bags of ice, we have loan applica-
tions and disaster counselors to
help businesses get back on their
feet."
During the past two calm hur-
ricane seasons in Florida, the
Pensacola-based MACs have not
been idle. They have traveled the

Littriello: 'It's time for survival'


FOOD / From 15

"We're up almost 17 percent
from food prices, even in the sta-
ples," said Bobby Mongelli,
owner of the Hpgfish Bar and
Grill on Stock Island and the
Geiger Key Pub. "Our menus
can't keep up and the restaurant
takes it on the chin."
The explanation for the rising
tide is attributable to a change in
world diet toward more meat.
But recent spikes in prices stem
from high demand for corn,
driven in part by demand ethanol
and government subsidies,
according to meat producing
industries. As corn is more prof-
itable, land once used for other
livestock and vegetables is being
converted to grow corn, limiting
the availability of non-corn
products. Corn is also used
heavily in sugary foods in high
fructose corn syrup form.
Many basic food prices have
risen because of corn, especially
pork and beef - foods grown by
feeding corn to pigs and cows,
said Jimmy Weekley, owner of
Fausto's Food Palace, a boutique
grocer in Key West:
Fausto's can pass most price
increases on to customers, a
byproduct of an industry with
such small profit margins.
Restaurants owners don't feel so
lucky.
"Gas stations can change
their prices daily; we're lucky if
we can do it twice a year," said
Ted Dreaver, part owner of the
Key Largo Conch House with
his wife Laura. "It certainly is
affecting us; any little way we
can watch costs to make up for
that, we do. It's a struggle."


'Time for survival'
Dreaver said raising prices
could alienate customers who
already feel pinched by rising
food prices, so printing new
menus is out of the question.
Instead, the Conch House
focuses on tp-selling - con-
vincing customers to order a
cappuccino instead of a coffee,
for instance. Littriello says
increasing total sales is the only
way to boost the bottom line
during such a squeeze.
"It's not time for profit; it's
time for survival," he said.
"There's going to be casualties
along the way. I don't see where
the pressure valve is going to be
released for small operators."
Key West's Dennis Pharmacy
Island Cafe owners say they
have enough worries in their
lower-traffic - location on
Petronia Street. The former
chefs of the famous lunch count-
er struggled with setting up after


the pharmacy closed and find
themselves still treading water
as food prices rise.
"Business could be better,"
says Mey Espinoza, whose fam-
ily owns the cafe. "As of now,
we're letting [supply price]
increases go by, waiting for the
economy to get better."
The Espinozas worry raising
prices to match their expenses
will sully their image as a low-
cost eatery for Conchs.
"They get a lot of locals who
expect good food at good
prices," said David Alea, proper-
ty manager and former pharma-
cy owner. Alea said other costs
such as insurance cut into busi-
ness.
"We do see insurance prices
rising, including liability and
workman's comp," said Dreaver,
whose Conch House rents their
Key Largo restaurant. "It seems
like everything's going up for
us."

said Jackie Harder, chamber
president. "It's a good thing for
our members to know about.
Most of our businesses are small
here."
Greg Baumann, a certified
business analyst for the Small
Business Development Center in
Key West, said the idea for the
MACs stemmed from the busy
hurricane seasons of 2004 and
2005, when eight storms hit the
state.
"Research shows the quicker a
business gets back operating, the
greater its chances of surviving a
disaster," Cartwright said.
Cartwright said the idea for
the MACs also came from
Florida business counselors'
recounting stories of sleeping on
the ground or church pews, with
no running water or bathroom
facilities, while trying to help
businesses destroyed by hurri-
canes that ripped through
Mississippi and Louisiana.
The MACs are equipped with
laptops, wireless printers, satel-
lite communications, business
libraries and disaster-loan appli-
cations.
The centers are primarily to
help companies get money quick-
ly in the form of Small Business
Administration disaster loans and
state emergency bridge loans and
economic injury loans.

Raise a toilet seat to a loved one

Upper Keys channel sees some vandalism but could be flush with replacements-


By JILL ZIMA BORSKI
Keynoter Contributor


Every toilet seat tells a story.
Two unique toilet-seat chan-
nels exist in the Keys, in waters
around mile markers 88 and 94
bayside, but the latter has been
subject to vandalism lately.
Local boaters have always
appreciated the Key Largo chan-
nel, known to locals as Little
Toilet Seat Pass. Although the
channel decorations are not rec-
ognized by law enforcement as
official channel markers, Little
Toilet Seat boasts one-of-a-kind
toilet seats bolted onto PVC
posts that often are a commemo-
ration of a loved one or beloved
pet, or a display of an organiza-
tion.
Lee Ferguson of Key Largo
said several toilet seats were
torn down or vandalized recent-
ly but she and relatives worked


to restore them because it hurt to
know the tribute she created for
her dog, Rocky, had disap-
peared.
"I created my toilet seat as a
memorial to Rocky, who passed
at 12 years old," Ferguson says.
"Rocky was well traveled and
often referred to as Rocky, king
of puppies, as depicted on the
toilet seat. He certainly was a
dog with a Keys disease
lifestyle."
"Rocky's original memorial
toilet seat was found last year
knocked down in the mud and
we re-installed it," Ferguson
said. "However, after vandalism
this year, we have not yet locat-
ed it so we created a new one for
him."
Each toilet seat is creatively
decorated with special meaning.
"Little Toilet Seat Pass has
been in existence for decades,
and in 2007 and now again in


2008, has been the target of van-
dals who have left only broken
PVC poles in the mud," accord-
ing to Ferguson, who regularly
boats in the area. "Who would
believe that such a special place
would be targeted by vandals?
We will remain proactive and
certainly vigilant in our quest to
deter any further vandalism,
since community involvement
does apparently indicate interest
and concern for this pass."
Concerned residents spent a
couple of weeks recently in a
dinghy working diligently on,
the project.
And members of Wild
Women on the Water, a Keys
social group that encourages
women to learn the finer points
of navigation and enjoy all
opportunities the Keys offer,
installed a toilet seat off
Islamorada representing the
group as a fun way to promote


their organization.
"I just hope others can
respect the enjoyment we
receive from seeing our hand-
made tributes remain in place
while also marking the chan-
nel," Ferguson said. "They are
attractive as well as meaningful,
and I hope fellow boaters can
regard them without having to
destroy them. Heck, they can
even create their own toilet seat
masterpiece and add it to the
collection. We plan to continued
working on this next season to
complete both sides of the
pass."
Donations, especially three-
inch wide, 10-feet-long PVC
pipes, are welcome. Send an e-
mail to Annie Asdourian for
dropoff information' to keys
bum@bellsouth.net, or call
Ferguson, who will help anyone
with installation, at 781-784-
1147.

Ultra

Race covers
100 miles in
relay format
Keynoter Staff

An Upper Keys squad put in
the miles to win the team compe-
tition in the first Keys 100 ultra-
race, beating its competitors
from Key Largo to Key West by
nearly an hour.
Florida Upper Keys Runners'
Team 1 posted a 12-hour, 2.55-
minute time for the 100-mile
event staged May 17.
That. was 58 minutes faster
than the second-place team,
Eskimo Fish.
At least six Keys-based teams
completed the grueling 100-mile
run on a relay basis. The distance
works out to a leg pf 16.7 miles
per tealn member but teams
could allow individual runners
cover different distances.
On the winning.team were
Alex Agurcia, Richiard Black,
Xavier Figueredo, Pete Frezza,
Joanna McCoy and Joan Sholz.
The Keys 100 also featured
20 runners who registered to run
the 100 miles on their own, and
19 who signed up for a 50-mile
leg.
Alisa Springmarj was the
fastest solo 100-mile runner with
a time of 23 hours, 2.23 minutes.
Alan Geraldi was second at
25:37.52.
Only seven of the 100-mile
runners crossed the finish line.
Fifteen of 19 50-mile runners
finished.
Local runners said they did
not recognize any of the distance
soloists as Monroe County resi-
dents. No hometowns were listed
on the official results.
"In the world of ultra running,
this is really a big deal for the

Freeman runs for 217


FINS / From 20

Martin said the Falcons
were unable to stop the
Dolphins ,when Marathon, ran
its regular offense, as sopho-
more running back A.J.
Freeman torched the Falcons
for 217 y'ads and two touch-
downs in the first half alone.
"He was' breaking tackles
and running away from peo-
ple," Martin said.
He also said the Dolphins
concentrated on fine-tuning
their passing game in the sec-
ond half
"I decided to do different
things. I probably could have
controlled the game by run-
.ning the ball, but it's spring
and we wanted to work on
things," he said.
Sophomore quarterback
Nyran Ross performed well,
Martin said, but an intercep-
tion he tossed on an overthrow
led to the Falcons taking an
early 6-0 lead. The Falcons
scored on an 80-yard run on
their second play after the
turnover.
"Not seeing speed like that
in practice surprised us a bit,"
Martin said.
The Dolphins answered
quickly, though, scoring three
touchdowns in the quarter and
taking a 21-6 lead. Freeman


had scoring rushes of 56 and
six yards, while Ross ran one
in from the one-yard line.
The Dolphins allowed two
late touchdowns in the second
half to eventually lose the
exhibition game.
Martin said the game bene-
fited a roster with several
newcomers to football, includ-
ing kickers Matt DeFillips,
Noel Ceja and Emmanual
Chevala.
Martin said the group
makes up the strongest kick-
ing unit the Dolphins have had
in four years.
Marathon is through prac-
ticing until August, though
Martin said the players will
continue to work out on their
own. The team's kickoff clas-
sic this year will be against
Pope John Paul High School
in Boca Raton.
The Dolphins shut the
Class-2A team out on their
home field in last year's open-
er, 19-0.

Of tsore
Dolphin catches have got-
ten very good off the Upper
Keys.
Capt. Rob Corradi on the
Southern Comfort had a box
full of dolphin early last
week but the high point was
the first fish of the day, a
blue marlin estimated at 150
pounds. That's his second
blue in two weeks. .
Capt. Wes King on the
Hopalong caught a bull dol-
phin that weighed in at 55
pounds. Capt. John
Taskowitz on the Suzanne
boxed a big bull that
weighed in at 68 pounds.


Reefs
The name of the game on
the reef is and will continue
to be yellowtail snapper.
Some charters are running
offshore to finish their day
after boating a limit of the
tasty snapper and others are
staying close to the reef and
drifting li\e bait deep for
mackerel or mutton.

Gulf, bay
NMay is permit month in
the gulf and e er\where else,
too. Any structure in the gulf
including markers will hold

The big pompano will eat
a shrimp or crab and no
heavy leader is necessary. In
Florida Bay the grassy/pot-
hole areas inside the park
boundary-are loaded with sea
trout and the mangrove snap-
per aresimply ravenous.
- With no problem, one
could pick almost anm area
and drift along covering lots
of temtory and catch all the
trout and snapper wanted Jig

Flats, backcountry
Tarpon is the name of the
game for most of this month.
Many techniques are used to
catch tarpon from fly rod-
ding to live baiting with mul-

TRIPLICATE: Cobia are still showing up on the close-in gulf wrecks. These were taken on a
recent weekend using live pinfish and weighed a combined 110 pounds. Angler (front to
back) are Joey Boucher and Ez Ed from Marathon, and Tom Collins from New York. They
were fishing with Capt. Lee Lucas on First Love Charters from Duck Key.



Missing: Flats etiquette


I am not an everyday guide.
Although my heart lies in shal-
low-water fishing, I don't do it
for a living and it's difficult for
me to understand what flats
guides go through day to day.
I also have total respect for
everyone's job and pressures
associated with them, whether it's
sweeping floors or the command-
er in chief; there's pressure in
every job to a degree.
And I have lived in the Keys
for only six years and know noth-
ing of the history of flats fishing
besides what I've been told.
Saying all of that, I do get a
realistic view from the many
friends from Biscayne Bay to the
Marquesas who are everyday
working guides and feel I am a
good barometer for trends and
issues.
The rant: As we enter the heat
of tarpon season in the Keys, you
can count on the number of inci-
dents of what I call flats rage
increasing. That would be on-the-
water incidents between many of
the working tarpon guides.
What's alarming is that over the
past two years, I see some dis-
turbing trends.
We are all fishermen. What
gives a flats guide the right to feel
above others and have rules that
p I iply to only him or her?- Is't that


b they can
produce
more fish
than other
Guides?
Win more
r etourna-
b t ments?
Have an
're doing scale
client base?
Are booked
300 days a
year?
Cal Sutphin I hate tor
break the
news, but these captains aren't
curing cancer or transplanting
hearts. They're doing a job that
99 percent of the working would,
in a nanosecond, trade for.
I've heard how some guides
talk to their colleagues, or should
I say belittle their colleagues:
"Do you know who I am?" "You
were burning up my flat last
week." "Do you have any idea
what you're doing?" "I can't
stand all of you silver-spooned
rich boys that think you can be a
guide."
I also have serious issues with
the guide who yells at another for
something he or she thinks they
did last week.
A young captain in Islamorada
was berated It $i lodal boat ramp


by a veteran flats guide for run-
ning full speed across a flat he
was working the previous week. I
mean yelled and embarrassed this
young guide in front of other
guides within earshot. Problem
was, the young guide was never
near that flat - wasn't even fish-
ing the day he said he saw him.
This scenario just .happened
again in the Lower Keys at a pop-
ular boat ramp, and happened in
front of this one particular cap-
tain's clients. What a horrible
light shone on our flats communi-
ty.
You look less of a man in my
eyes to have confrontations like
these. If some guides feel they
have to intimidate others, they
should go into another field; it
takes more of a man to calmly
ask for the other captain's name
and number and say you would
like to talk to him later, with no
clients around. If you want to yell
then, that's your prerogative.
Of course, I agree you can
throw that suggestion out the
window if you already tried this
approach to no avail.'
There are also many fine shal-
low-water guides clubs like the
Key Largo, Islamorada,
Marathon and the Lower Keys

Keys Fishing


Summer dolphin just waiting for bait


-- Offshore, the dolphin are by
far the highlight. You can get off
work, head out two or three miles
beyond the reef in the afternoon
and still have enough time to
catch dinner in an hour or two.
The best areas have been
along the current edge of the Gulf
Stream. The actual location of it
changes hourly so there is no
accurate way to tell you where it
will be by the time you get there,
even with one of those tempera-
ture maps unless, you get an
hourly update on board. Besides,
if you make it too scientific, you
lose the challenge of fishing.
If there is an easterly breeze,
you'll notice it without question,
as the wave action picks up
against the current. Usually there
is also a weed line along this
edge, plus more beyond it. Birds
will be working the area if fish
are plentiful.
I prefer to use the Billy Baits
and do a high-speed troll to cover

I usually put the lures in around

If you have a line in the water, you
have a chance. If you are just run-
ning all over the place looking,
your only hope is if one jumps in

ming in their proximity. Live
pilchards work just as well except
they are much harder to catch and
keep alive pinfishh are known as
the Timex of bait fish).
This is also a good thing to
have when you find that obstruc-
tion - a board, pallet or even a
large weed patch. Hook a live
pinfish 6n a spinner with a wire


leader and toss him in. He doesn't
know he's in very deep water; all
he knows is that he wants to get
to the bottom.
Give him some time to head
down with the bail open and
watch for it to start whipping off.
If that happens, pick it up, lock it
up and have your way. When this
gets a hit, it is usually a wahoo or
a large dolphin that was not
attracted to the surface.
Another thing to remember is


that when you hook a big fish and
are fighting it toward the boat,
you may see another one travel-
ing right alongside of it. If you
wait until you get the one on to
the boat or even boat the fish
prior to attempting to hook the
other fish, odds are it won't bite.

guides associations. How about
bringing the perpetual bad-eti-
quette captain's name forward to
the group for discussion? If the
idea of each association is to
promote the business, then I
would think it would be a per-
fect venue for such venting.
SI would think we all agree the
2007-08 season has been the


most challenging year for local
guides and we all have to do what
we can to keep our image up.
One last comment: Please
have patience with those who do
not know what they do, namely,
the family rent-a-boat that hap-
pens to motor up to you when you
are staked up on the tarpon mra-
tory route. In most cases, they just
aren't aware of what's going on.
Take a deep breath and smile.
It just may prolong your life.
