a backyard tiki torch fell over, lighting the outside deck and quickly engulfing the home in
flames.




What's future hold



for Stock Island?


Island would
see big change
in redevelopment
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Skeptical Keys residents will
soon have a chance to see what's
planned for the Stock Island water-
front if the Florida Department
of Community Affairs gives devel-
opers the go-ahead to build.


New Stock Island Properties,
comprising local fishermen and
out-of-town financial backers,
has been working to get state and
county approval for plans to
develop retail shops, restaurants,
a ferry terminal, a 300-hotel and
260 boat slips.
All would be connected with a
boardwalk, give more public
access to the water than there is
now and revitalize the waterfront,
they say.


While working with DCA to
get approval, the company now
says it's ready to show residents,
chambers of commerce and other
civic organizations exactly what's
planned, and in some detail.
They point out the strip of
land surrounding Safe Harbor has
been neglected and under-uti-
lized. Ed Kulik, chief executive
officer of New Stock Island
Properties, said most of it has
been fenced off and inaccessible

Longtime Marathon business
leader Benjamin Roche Jr. may
have plenty of time to contem-
plate his Tuesday guilty plea to
federal charges of withholding
employee Social Security taxes
and failure to file his own
income tax returns.
The 57-year-old certified
public accountant, who handles
many prominent Monroe
County residents' taxes, must
repay the tax money and faces
up to six years in prison and
$35,000 in fines, though he like-
ly won't do that much time,
according to his plea agreement
with. the U.S. Attorney's Office
in Miami.
According to the agreement,
Roche agrees that the taxes due
to the Internal Revenue Service,
excluding interest and penalties,
for the tax years 2001 through
2004 are at least $220,000.
Roche, a certified public
accountant in Florida since
1979, is well known in the
Middle Keys, having served on
multiple boards, including the
Fishermen's Hospital and
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce boards and other
community organizations.
His plea shocked many in the
community.
Roche couldn't be reached for
comment Friday on the future of
his practice. But some in the
community believe he'll sell it to
another accounting firm.
He's scheduled to be sen-
tenced Aug. 13.

Fire snuffs out memories


All destroyed
after blaze
consumes home
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Robert "Rocketman" Hudson
recalls with irony the last song he
performed before he got the call
that his Sombrero home. in
Marathon was in flames.
"Don't Worry, Be Happy" is
Bobby McFerrin's feel-good ode
to life.
Friday, Hudson wasn't feeling
like singing as he recounted
Wednesday's fire that destroyed
not only his home but all of his,
his wife Vickie's and daughter
Roxanne's possessions.
Hudson said many residents
witnessed the fire and were upset
at how long it took the fire
department to get water on it.
Marathon Fire Chief Dale
Beaver said multiple -calls came
in around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday
reporting a fire at the home at
1130 Calle Ensenada. He said
two crews attacked the fire with
1,750 gallons of water upon
arrival, but an estimated 12 to 15
minutes passed after it ran out
and crews were able to find
another source.
"The way it was approached,
anyone can second guess, but the
plan was sound. They had water
on the fire within a minute of
them arriving on the scene,"
Beaver said. "One crew went
around the rear where it started,
however, it had already gotten
into the attic. The other crew tried
to make entry though the front
door; as they did they found
heavy flames and smoke inside
the structure."
Beaver said the plan was for
Engine 17 out of Conch Key to
run a 5-inch supply line from the
neighborhood's only fire hydrant,
at Sombrero Beach Road and
Avenida Primaceria, to the fire.
But the truck carries only 1,000
feet of line, which left it 1,000
feet short of the Hudson's home.
"It's very difficult to tell what
is 1,000 feet; there's just no way,"
Beaver said.
Volunteer Randy Mearns then
informed firefighters on the scene
of a canal behind a house across
the street.
"They had to use chainsaws to
cut through the mangroves, over
30 feet, to get the hose into the

Marathon Fire Chief Dale Beaver speaks to Rocketman and
daughter Roxanne (top) following the blaze. Beaver said the fire
department went 12 to 15 minutes without water during the fire,
which many neighbors were upset about. Nothing remains of
the home not family documents, furniture, clothing and a
variety of valuable memorabilia collections.


water. Once they did they were
able to supply the attack line with
water," he said.
But even with a steady supply
of water, Beaver said, the home
still likely would have been lost
because the fire spread to the
attic. And the roof was made of
heavy terracotta tile, which
Beaver says made it a danger to
collapse.
"In any attic fire, regardless of
the size of the structure, 90 per-
cent of the time the house is lost.
There is very little you can do
about it," he said.
Hudson said the fire began
when Roxanne, 16, lit four tiki
torches in the backyard to scatter
a swarm of gnats gathering by the
pool. He said minutes later,
Vickie looked outside and saw
the deck was on fire.
."Roxanne ran out there and
said it was coming down the
torch. Evidently, one of the plas-
tic cylinders cracked, the cit-
ronella went down the torch rod,
hit the plastic deck and from then


on it was a quick fire," Hudson
said.
Among the items the family
lost: 15 guitars and other musical
instruments, a series of valuable
artwork, jewelry and memorabil-
ia collections, as well as birth cer-
tificates, military papers and
other family documents.
The Hudsons moved into the
home, which was owned by a
family friend, after getting evict-
ed from the Jolly Roger Travel
Park on Grassy Key following
Hurricane Wilma.
After the fire, the American
Red Cross put the Hudsons up at
the Sea Dell Motel in Marathon
for three days and purchased
clothing and necessities for the
family.
Hudson said the family has
been overwhelmed by communi-
ty support and that he has no
intentions of leaving.
"I have to play and get my
mind off all this," he said. "I have
too many friends; my life is
here."

ROCHE / From 1
The U.S. Attorney's Office
says Roche failed to account for
and pay federal employment
taxes due for the fourth quarter
of 2003, and that Roche failed to
file an income tax return for
2003 "knowing that he had
received gross income of
approximately $357,000."
An agreed statement of facts
entered in the case says $61,064
of what he owes is from with-
held Federal Insurance
Contribution taxes, also known
as Social Security taxes, while
$157,880 is the result of Roche's
failure to file personal income
tax returns.
According to the plea agree-
ment, Roche and prosecutors
agreed "the applicable sentenc-
ing guideline is 18 to 24 months'


imprisonment." The agreement
says prosecutors will recom-
mend sentencing be reduced
"based upon the defendant's
recognition and affirmative and
timely -acceptance of personal
responsibility."
Roche was also granted
leniency because he notified
authorities early he would'plead
guilty, the agreement says.
According to the plea agree-
ment, at the time of his guilty
plea Roche will permanently
relinquish his Florida CPA
license and any other license he
holds in other states or jurisdic-
tions on a permanent basis. He
has also agreed to file amended
tax returns for 2001 through
2004.
Roche also has to pay the IRS
$100,000 no later than his sen-
tencing date.

FPL rate increase won't hit here


FKEC members
already pay
the highest
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Power and Light's
bid for higher rates to its direct
customers will not come down
the line to Monroe County,
local utility managers say.
That's in large part because
increasing fuel prices cited by
FPL in its application to the
Florida Public Service
Commission already have been
priced into local rates.
"It will have very little
impact on us because we've
already felt the fuel costs over
the last few months," said Scott
Newberry, chief executive offi-
cer of the Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative, serving the
Middle and Upper Keys.


"Under a business contract,
we pay the actual fuel costs
every month," Newberry said.
"They increase or decrease,
and you can see the craziness
in this market for fuel oil and
natural gas."
In May, the co-op charged
$131.64 for 1,000 kilowatt
hours of power to a Keys
home. Of that, $93.48 was
purely for fuel costs.
"About 70 to 72 percent of
the FKEC bill is our cost to buy
power from FP&L," Newberry
said.
Keys Energy Services, serv-
ing the Lower Keys and Key
West, gets its energy from the
Florida Muhicipal Power
Agency.
The Lower Keys utility
adjusts its fuel costs to cus-
tomers every three or four
months, spokesman Julio
Barroso said.
Keys Energy residential


ull1ulm i r r ,
l'""'I ^ --

POWERED UP: Keys Energy Services has completed
upgrades to its Angela Street substation in Key West. It
services four electrical feeders that provide power to
about 2,200 customers. The upgrades cost about $340,000.


customers now pay about $123
on a base rate for 1,000 kilo-
watt hours, plus a $19.50 fuel
adjustment, for a total t1ill of
about $142.50, not including
some other surcharges.
"It's definitely a volatile
market for fuel. People can see
prices at the [gasoline] pump,"
Barroso said. "We're trying to
keep our costs somewhat con-


sistent so they don't fluctuate
so dramatically month to
month."
Customers can expect high-
er bills in the summer months,
when the Keys hit the peak
period for power usage, he
noted.
FPL's request seeks to boost
its rates about 16 percent to its
4.5 million Florida customers.


Rates would to up $16.28 per
month for 1,000 kilowatt
hours.
Newberry said FPL can only
adjust its rates to its direct cus-
tomers every six months.
"They essentially been
under-collecting for the last six
months so they have to make
up for that," he said.

blew some sense in along the way.
Just in case you missed it, last year McCain opposed legisla-
tion that would have provided up to $2 billion in federal funds
for Everglades restoration.
Thursday, addressing the Florida Society of Newspaper
Editors and the Florida Press Association, McCain got grilled
on why he opposed Everglades funding.
As reported by The Miami Herald, McCain told the group
he's. "committed to saving the Everglades," going on to cite
parts of the Water Resources Development Act as "out-of-con-
trol" spending.
That didn't sit too well with one of his former Senate col-
leagues, Bob Graham.
Florida's two-term governor and later U.S. senator, from
1985 to 2005, became an early champion of environmental
causes, chiefly the Everglades.
Friday, Graham told the Herald's politics reporter Beth
Reinhard that McCain was "ill-advised" to support the presi-
dent's veto of the water resources legislation.
"This has serious consequences," Graham said. "We're
already seven years delayed in getting some of the most criti-
cal early projects authorized."
Ironically, President Bush's brother, Jeb, was Florida gover-
nor in 2004 when he helped convince state lawmakers to
advance $1.5 billion in Everglades funding, arguing that the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers could later reimburse the state
when federal dollars began flowing.
Well, the spigot was turned off back then and it doesn't seem
like McCain's airboat ride will make much difference.
It is worth noting that McCain's Republican colleague, Sen.
Mel Martinez, broke ranks with the president last year and
voted to override his veto. Gov. Charlie Crist also lobbied in
Washington, D.C., last year to support the override.
McCain, who was on the campaign trail at the time, missed
the vote. But the Herald reports the Arizona senator "later
urged his colleagues to let President Bush's veto of the meas-
ure stand."
The $2 billion sought for the Everglades would have begun
work to plug canals and remove roads that impede water flow,
restore a watershed into the Indian River and elevate Tamiami
Trail to restore natural sheet flow into Everglades National Park.
For McCain as well as for Barack Obama, one true test of
their environmental bonafides going forward will be seeing
federal money flowing to restore the Glades.
So far, the feds have ponied up only $700 million compared
to Florida's $2.3 billion. That about says it all.

The net ban hurt fishermen more than it helped


EDITOR:
I'm writing in response to your front-page
article from Wednesday on possible changes in
Florida's net-ban amendment. I'm a former 23-
year Marathon resident and business owner still
operating in Monroe County and a displaced
pompano stab-net fisherman from the net ban.
Out of my 23 years in Marathon, I was a long-
time commercial boat owner and actively fished
for pompano 19 of those 23 years.
I can't help but be offended that a considera-
tion by the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission should be viewed as ludicrous when
parts of the net ban were just wrong. I whole-
heartedly agree that inshore/tidewater fisheries
like the roe mullet fishery had to go. I also agree
that increasing to a 3-inch mesh would gill off
three times as many tidewater mullet and would
gill small sport fish as well in seine-type nets.
But to classify all stab-net fishing as deadly
entangling gear is equally as wrong and making .
the insinuation that net fishing kills everything is
just as wrong.
Marathon's pompano grounds are from 10 to
20 miles north of Grassy Key west to about Snipe
Point. Pompano are caught using 4 7/8-inch to 5
1/8-inch mesh that is either No. 104 or No. 139
equivalent to 6-pound test or 8-pound test respec-


tively, meaning bycatch is extremely minimal.
And anything actually large enough to stick in a
.5-inch mesh has no problem with 8-pound test.
In 23 years, i have never even heard of some-
one bycatching any marine mammals or turtles,
let alone a redfish or a snook, in that portion of
Florida Bay. Furthermore pompano do not gill off
in the gear because of their unique shape; they
get caught by a spiny dorsal fin and all are very
alive when they come to the boat, meaning
everything escaping the net swims away
unharmed.
Don't believe everything Florida Sportsman
Editor in Chief Karl Wickstrom prints. He printed
in his magazine during his push for the ban that
net fisherman would be justly compensated for
nets and boats. In the net buyback program, we
got zilch for our boats and I received less than 10
cents on the dollar for my nets. This crippled at
least 40 hardworking now-former Marathon fam-
ilies and close personal friends.
So please keep in mind that there are viable
net fisheries that do not do bycatch damage. Not
all of the net ban was good, because real hard-
working environmentally conscious people got
hurt.

We can help stem abuse during pregnancy


EDITOR:
In response to the two recent local stories
(Stock Island and Islamorada) in which a preg-
nant woman was assaulted, we would like to
take this opportunity to publicly warn women
about the dangers of domestic violence while
pregnant.
One out of every six pregnant women reports
she has been hurt by a partner during pregnancy.
Serious consequences to the mother and unborn
child can result from abuse during pregnancy.
They include late entry into prenatal care, bleed-
ing, preterm labor or premature baby, ruptured
uterus, detached placenta (life-threatening for
both mom and baby), birth defects and death.
These complications pose a serious public
health issue, financial burden for the system and
the individual, and the most daunting issue, the
health and welfare of the mother and child.'
Although domestic violence is usually a
hush-hush issue that happens behind closed
doors, it has recently become a forefront issue
for this community with so many recent pub-
lishings related to domestic-violence assaults
and even murders.
Locally, the Domestic Abuse Shelter, a state
certified Monroe Countywide agency serving
victims of domestic and/or sexual violence,
averages four to five hotline calls per day from
victims of domestic violence. During the past
fiscal year, more than 200 people fleeing
domestic violence entered DAS shelters, and of
those victims, 24 were infants in the accompani-
ment of their mothers.
The Domestic Abuse Shelter has offices
throughout the county and offers all services
free of charge. If you need assistance, would
like more information or would just like to vol-


unteer to help DAS make this community a
safer, healthier place to live, please call any
hour of any day to 294-0824, 743-9496 or 451-
5666.
We urge all women to ask their care provider
during pregnancy for a Florida Keys Healthy
Start Coalition screening form, which is confi-
dential and used to help us help you have a
healthy baby. For more information on Healthy
Start programs, contact www.Keys

College wrong in firing
EDITOR:
The firing of Tim Jones from Florida Keys
Community College is a shame and an offense.
It is a shame because he is a great teacher with loads
of experience (he had been a teacher at the college for
several years). As a student of his, I learned and learned.
He was jovial, accessible and accommodating. Most
importantly, he knew what he was talking about -
marine engines and propulsion and he was happy to
share what he knew both in class and after hours. His was
my first class at the college and consequently, I was
proud to be a student there.
It is an offense that Tim Jones was let go because he
was the best person for the job. When I returned for the
latest semester at the college, much to my dismay, Tim
Jones had been replaced. But what made it a sore spot
was that the person who replaced him was a nice enough
guy but he knew very little about marine engines. (The
class was Marine Gasoline Engine Troubleshooting.) In
fact, he was not a marine engine mechanic; he was a
welder.
Why was Tim Jones fired? Educational requirements?
I doubt that. Chances are someone just didn't like him,
some petty ego thing, or some bubba-ism thing. If I'm
right, then that makes me sad. In a hierarchy of concerns,
egos must come after the education of students.
Tim Jones is a damn fine teacher. Quality of education
must come first. Marine engines and propulsion are sub-
jects of great importance here in the Keys and will
always be. We need more teachers like Tim Jones. In fact,
we need Tim Jones. Bring him back. I still don't under-
stand some of these carburetors.

This is a rendering of what New Stock Island Properties proposes for its land on Stock Land
at the very bottom are fish houses and the shrimp fleet.


Developer says plan coming


STOCK ISLAND / From 1

to the public.
He said that will change. A
public boardwalk would run the
entire length of the U-shaped
property, creating what he
describes as a "village setting."
"This development really
starts at the land and works its
way out," said the group's attor-
ney, David Paul Horan.
Horan said more than half
the property acquired by the
company is 26 acres of sub-
merged bay bottom, where they
hope to build the slips. The
property also includes 22 acres
of upland on a fairly narrow
strip of land that runs from an
existing boatyard bordering
Meridian West, the low-income
housing development that
replaced the old dog track, to
the strip of land once known as
Alex's Junk Yard.
A plan for a 300-room


waterfront hotel is one aspect of
the development that has stuck
in the craw of some residents,
county officials and DCA.
"This is not going to be
some high-rise block," Kulik
said. "It's going to be a village
befitting Keys style."
Horan began advocating for
the development before county
government in September by
pointing out the hotel would be
ideal to house first responders
following a hurricane. But a
new hotel, sitting on waterfront
land zoned as marine industrial,
appears to fly in the face of the
county's land-use plan.
And mere mention of a 300-
rooni hotel immediately planted
red flags on the entire project,
according to critics.
Residents also chafe over an
adjacent parcel that now houses
Robbie's Marina.
Robbie Reckwerdt, who owns
the marina, hired attorney Jerry
Coleman to help rewrite a pro-


posed county ordinance aimed at
protecting the working water-
front and public access. The law
included a concept called "no net
loss" that would have required
waterfront property owners to
retain traditional uses of their
land when redeveloping.
Coleman proposed remov-
ing that language from the law,
arguing commercial fishing is
fast disappearing and landown-
ers should not be held to main-
taining an industry that could be
gone in another generation.
Horan says his clients
believe in the concept of no net
loss of commercial fishing. In
fact, he points out the owners
have already consolidated fish
houses into one large facility
that better serves the fleet now
docking on Stock Island. In
addition, Horan says a boatyard
is an essential part of New
Stock Island Properties' plan,
along with dock space for the
commercial fishing fleet.


Moratorium


is expiring


An extension
up for vote
on June 18
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

With a moratorium on accept-
ing development plans for the
working waterfront in Monroe
County expiring July 9, the
County Commission is consider-
ing extending it for another year.
The vote will likely happen
when the commission meets June
18 at the Marathon Government
Center. It was on the agenda for a
special May 23 commission
meeting but no action was taken.
In 2005; the county put a
freeze on accepting applications
to redevelop waterfront parcels to
give staff enough time to come
up with a plan to preserve the
working waterfront and public
access to the water. The freeze
came at the height of the building
boom in the Keys, when develop-
ers set their sights on waterfront
land for high-end residential


units.
The yearlong extension might
not pass.
"I'm not in favor of a morato-
rium of any kind," county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said. "This has
been going on for three years.
People's property rights are tied
up. I'd rather see no moratorium;
it seems people move a lot faster
that way."
"I don't really have any spe-
cific feelings on it right now,"
Commissioner Sonny McCoy
said. "But it can't go on forever."
McCoy said the county has
had a habit of perpetuating mora-
toria for too long. He acknowl-
edges this one has been extended
in part because the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs has objected to some
aspects of the county's proposed
waterfront-protection ordinance,
delaying implementation of such
a law.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
says she's in favor of extending

Residents split


on proposed plans


Some like it,
others decry
development
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Future development in Stock
Island has some residents frus-
trated and others energized.
"It sounds like a great idea for
the whole neighborhood," said
Ximena Proano, an orthodontic
assistant and resident of the
Meridian West apartment com-
plex on Stock Island. She's lived
in Stock Island for 11 years.
A proposed redevelopment
project by New Stock Island
Properties includes a 300-room
hotel, ferry terminal boardwalk,
shops, housing, a restaurant, a
boat yard, commercial fishing
and 260 boat slips. The hotel
and proposed ferry terminal are
slated to be built on the Alex's
Junk Yard site.
But some residents prefer the
status quo.
"I almost prefer a junkyard to
a boardwalk," said Phillip
Morawa, who lives on a 40-
year-old boat docked near the
Hogfish Bar and Grille. "I like
the older, less-developed areas
of Key West."
Morawa, a chef at Pepe's
Cafe, was a computer network
engineer in Connecticut for 32
years until he moved down with'
his wife three years ago to enjoy
the history and culture of the
Keys.
"It seems like there are a lot
of people who are [for] short-
sided development down here,"
Morawa said. "And they seem
to forget the about the unique
features and heritage that should
be preserved."


He added, "I sure wish there
were more people concerned
with preserving heritage than
putting up condos everywhere.".
The New Stock Island plan
doesn't have condos included.
The state Department of
Community Affairs has twice
rejected the Monroe County
ordinance outlining the future
development of the only work-
ing waterfront in Stock Island.
The DCA objections stem from
a lack of "data and analysis" for
many policies in the proposed
ordinance.
But Hogfish hostess Susan
Howard says what New Stock
Island is "doing to the marina is
a positive thing. But I think
before they do anything, they
need to build some employee
housing. I think if it stays a
working marina, I'm all for it."
Workforce housing is includ-
ed in the plan.
Howard lives in a nearby
efficiency owned by the compa-
ny. She pays $1,200 a month,
utilities included. She says the
project should be kept a com-
mercial fishing spot, affordable
and open to the public.
The commercialization of the
area makes Ingo Scharrenbroich
uneasy. He owns a boat docked
at the waterfront.
"If I ever see a Conch Train
down here, it's time to pack up,"
he said, standing from his boat.
"I was here when the bight was.
all shrimp boats."
Tommy Mann, a 52-year-old
boat handyman, said develop-
ment is bound to happen.
"I think it's inevitable that
something is going to happen
with all of this waterfront prop-
erty," he said.


Projects on hold for now


By ALYSON CREAN

An attempt by Monroe
County to craft a law that would
preserve the commercial fishing
industry and ensure future public
access to the water has turned
into a rocky battle over the devel-
opment of just one island's water-
front.
Thought the original goal was
to preserve commercial fishing
and public access throughout
Monroe County, the law, which
took more than two years to draft,
ended up addressing only land
that is zoned marine industrial.
Stock Island's waterfront is
the only substantial piece of land
in unincorporated Monroe with
that zoning.
On Dec. 7, the state
Department of -Community
Affairs, which oversees land use
in the Keys, kicked back the
county's working-waterfront pro-
tection ordinance with a long list
of objections and recommenda-
tions to fix the problems. Many
of the objections had to do with
vague language in the way it was
written and passed by the County
Commission in September.
The commission addressed
many of the issues and resubmit-
ted the ordinance in February, but
DCA again rejected it in April,
largely due to last-minute addi-
tions made by attorneys for two
Stock Island property owners,
David Paul Horan representing
New Stock Island Properties and
Jerry Coleman representing
Robbie's Marina.
"The additions, according to
Mike McDaniel, chief of DCA's
office of comprehensive plan-
,ning, were not consistent with the
/ county's own land-use laws.
Among the questionable addi-
tions were a proposal to build a

Among the DCA objections:
The ordinance didn't
address "potential water-supply
issues for the proposed increase
in density and intensity."
+ "The proposed objective
states the loss of working water-
front in one geographic area must
be balanced by a gain elsewhere."
That, according to the report,
"could result in an oversupply of
working waterfronts in one area
of the county and an undersupply
in other areas."
The ordinance conflicted
with the county's land-use plan,
which prohibits new transient
residential units including hotel
and motel rooms; New Stock
Island Properties wants to build
the hotel.
+ County policy specifically
prohibits new transient rental
units, thus making new hotel
rooms inconsistent with the coun-

ty's comprehensive land use plan.
New Stock Island
Properties wants an exemption
from the county's rate-of-growth
ordinance, which regulates how
many building permits are allo-
cated in the Keys. CA says
"exempting development from
the adopted allocation systems is
internally inconsistent with the
comprehensive plan because
[county policy] prohibits new
transient residential units includ-
ing hotel and motel rooms...."
The policy calling for regu-
latory incentives lacks meaning
because it does not provide spe-
cific incentives, nor does it out-
line criteria thai would "ensure
continued commercial, recre-
ational and public access."
The state also noted that any
new marina with three or more
slips is prohibited by the county
until a marina survey of the Keys
is completed and specific marina
siting ciiteria is adopted.

'A world of loopholes'

the moratorium.
"We seem to live in a world of
loopholes," she said. "It may
seem today there's not much that
can be done even without it, but
that may not be the case."
Commissioner George
Neugent also favors it.
"At any point in time, if
there's a request to lift the mora-
torium, we could do it. So for me,
I'll probably vote to continue it,"
he says.
Developer New Stock Island
Properties has proposed a mas-
sive redevelopment for part of
Stock Island's waterfront but
can't proceed with a moratorium
in place. The same thing for
Robbie's Marina, also on Stock
Island.
Meanwhile, the Florida


Legislature passed a bill during
its spring session that allows the
owners of waterfront properties
to pay taxes on the actual use of
the land rather than the highest
and best use, as they have in the
past.
That former policy made it
tough on landowners not to sell
out to residential developers,
since they were paying taxes
based on the highest commercial
use that land could entertain.
"That tax relief bill relieves
the pressure on folks who are not
realizing the maximum income
on their land," said Drew
Trivette, the county's Growth
Management director. "And
that's the whole intent of the ordi-
nance we're working on. We're
trying to provide an incentive for
landowners to retain the current
marine-related uses."

Developer explains plan


Housing project
draws variety
of concerns
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A team developing an afford-
able-housing project came to
Tavernier to talk about aesthetics,
but community residents mostly
wanted to know who would live
there.
"Who do we call when things
get out of hand?" asked a man
who identified himself as a
neighbor of the 2.7-acre site at
Burton Drive. He declined to give
his name.
Several others in a crowd of
about 30 people at the Tavernier
Community Association meeting
Thursday voiced similar concerns.
Tom Capp from project devel-
oper Gorman and Co. said the 36-
unit complex near mile marker
92.6 would be professionally
managed at multiple levels.
"We are on the hook for a long
time, so we will make sure this
property is running well," Capp
said.
The complex is designed to
help teachers and firefighters,
who find their starting salaries of
$35,000 to $40,000 don't go far
in the Keys housing market, said
Lisa Tennyson,-affordable-hous-
ing coordinator for Monroe
County.
Gorman will conduct "very
rigorous" criminal-background
and credit checks on everyone
who applies for the subsidized
rentals, Capp said. Efforts will be
made to work with employers
like Mariners Hospital and the
School District to solicit employ-
ees already on staff.
"We have a great track
record," Capp said. "This is for
the workforce, and that includes


first-year teachers and [restau-
rant] service workers."
Richard Barreto, a former
Miami Beach police chief now
living in Tavernier, credited the
developer with planning a com-
plex that blends with the commu-
nity, but said management would
be critical.
Affordable projects "do bring
crime if not built and managed
right," Barreto said. "We don't
want people who don't work and
just take up space. How do you
make sure [local workers] get pri-
ority?"
Tennyson said it's in the coun-
ty's interest to do outreach "to
ensure we get these 36 units to
local people."
Monroe County bought the
property for the complex in 2005
specifically for workforce hous-
ing.
"This project is going to go
through," Monroe County
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said. "Our job now is to make
sure it's good."
"The need for affordable
housing was an issue discussed
over and over" by Tavernier resi-
dents in drafting the local
CommuniKeys land-use plan,
said Joel Reed, a former county
planner now consulting with
Gorman.
A handful of units at the com-
plex will be reserved for low-
income residents who can pay
$350 monthly, but most will
range from $801 for a typical
two-bedroom to a $1,033 four-
bedroom unit.
Gorman will seek government
grants to help with construction,
then maintain ground-lease rights
from the county for 99 years.
The Duany Plater-Zyberk
architectural firm of Miami,
which designed the renowned
Seaside planned community in
North Florida, did preliminary

designs for the project.
DPZ architect Eduardo
Fernandez said the complex would
be completely different from the
spartan 1960s government hous-
ing projects. "This will let people
live decent lives," he said.
The complex uses a "carpet
cottages" configuration that max-
imizes the use of shared walls and
open space while giving renters
"an actual single-family-home
feeling," Fernandez said. "This is
a home they'll care about."
Construction could begin next
spring, contingent on permitting
and funding.

Rowell's buy considered


Gastesi says
purchase needs

BY ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

New Monroe County Ad-
ministrator Roman Gastesi Jr. is
already getting his feet wet with
Monroe County real estate.
He has proposed purchasing
the vacant Rowell's Marina in
.Key Largo, mile marker 104.
"Because of the economic
downturn, it's an opportunity
and we should explore it,"
Gastesi said.
The 8.1-acre lot could serve
as a small-scale Founders Park,
he said, emphasizing that the
idea would be to give the public
access to the water. Gastesi said

when he drives through Key
Largo on U.S. 1 he barely sees
the water.
The idea isn't new. Back in
2004, then-County Com-
missioner Murray Nelson want-
ed the county to buy Rowell's
for public use but didn't get sup-
port.
"We really need to gauge the
community on this," Gastesi
said, adding, "I'm more interest-
ed in what they are interested
in."
Monday, Gastesi met with
about 15 residents to discuss
possibilities on how to fund the
former marina. All supported the
purchase for public access to the
water.
Among those attending were
Audrey Ordenes, director of the
South Florida office of the Trust
for Public Land. The group con-
serves land .for parks, historic
sites and other natural places.
She said she would get the
ball rolling by talking to Boca
Developers, which owns
Rowell's, to begin negotiations.
She emphasized that an impor-
tant step in the property consid-
eration is to poll the public and
gauge support for the purchase.
However, such a poll could
be costly, and Ordenes said she
would talk with the conservation
finance staff to see if money is
available.

Many of the residents dis-
cussed the possibility of a refer-
endum, but Gastesi said because
he is a representative of the
county, he cannot help write it.
"This is yours," he said to the
audience. "You want to make a
difference in Key Largo? Pull
this off. This is your baby."
Gastesi brought up the poten-
tial purchase up at a recent
Monroe County Commission
meeting.
"I brought it up at the com-
mission meeting, right after I
said that we were broke," he
said, laughing. "I said let me do
a complete 180 and tell you that
I'm interested in that property.
But I want to make it as open
and transparent as possible, and
maybe somebody will come for-
ward with a big grant or a big
loan."
Boca Developers bought the
property in 2005 with the inten-
tion of building 136 high-end
housing units in exchange for
building affordable housing at
the Seahorse RV Park on Big
Pine Key. That proposal to move
-building rights, not allowed
under current county law, met
stem opposition from Key Largo
community groups in 2006.
After the marina dealt with
several sales negotiations, com-
munity residents urged the
Monroe County Commission to
consider buying the site as a
public park with water access.
The asking price is about
$9.75 million.
Living in Islamorada, Gastesi
said he remembers when the vil-
lage government purchased the
old Plantation Yacht Harbor
resort to turn it into Founders
Park and how disgruntled people
were about it.
The village "took a lot of
heat," he said. "But I challenge
anybody to question that fore-
sight now because it's a beauti-
ful park, and I think that was
quite a vision."
He hopes to get some more
concrete facts about the project
in the near future.
"I'm not ready to say no yet,
and that's the bottom line,"
Gastesi said.

Course now mandatory


Biker law
takes' effect
on July 1
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Starting July 1, Keys motorcy-
clists will have to travel up to
Homestead to take the nearest
three-day mandatory drivers'
course.
It's part of a state law taking
effect that will require all new bik-
ers to graduate from a safety class.
Anyone, regardless of age,
who doesn't have a full motorcy-
cle endorsement on his or her
license, including the knowledge
and road-skills test, will get a
ticket if police catch them on a
motorcycle or moped with
engines larger than 49 cc.
Current law only requires bik-
ers under age 21 to take the three-
day course. Riders older than 21
only have to take a written exam
and a short driving test.
Under the new law, potential
motorcyclists will still have the
written skills test but it will be
administered at the three-day
Motorcycle Safety Foundation
course.
Bikers who've already
received their motorcycle
endorsements will be grandfa-
thered in and exempt from taking
the safety course.
"People will get pulled over
and they will be asked to get
endorsements and have to drive
more than 120 miles to get them,"


said Jiri Klapil, owner of the JK
Motor Shop in Key West. "That's
ridiculous."
"These are changes the state is
making," said Denise Wilcox,
supervisor of the drivers' license
office in Key West's Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles. "We weren't really
excited about it either."
Instructor Gene Gracey will
host his last skills tests at the First

Baptist Church on Big Pine Key
June 25, according to Key West
Yamaha manager Howard Bush.
The Key West DMV administers
the written exam, but will stop
July 1.
"It's a nightmare," Bush said.
"$250 [for the course], plus a
three-day hotel stay out of one's
own pocket to take a mandatory
motorcycle course ... and it's
going to make people jobless.
This is going to seriously hurt


sales across the state."
"I don't think that directly it
will affect me that much," Honda
Key West owner Victor Mills
said. "My sales have been more
directly linked to scooters than
motorcycles."
Many scooters have engines
smaller than 50 cc.
Mills, who owns the shop on
Southard Street, also mentioned
the fact that because it's a three-
day course, riders will have to
take off work. He also says that
once the state statute is imple-
mented, the state won't abide by
its own laws.
"The state is responsible for
having a course in the county,"
Mills said. "Monroe County is a
big county. They're proposing a
law they're not abiding by."
Ann Nucatola, a spokeswoman
for the DMV, said she was unsure
if the law requires a course be
available in each county.
The actually law passed a cou-
ple of years ago, according to
Nucatola. The delay in enforcing
it was due to the state finding
"enough teachers to administer
the course."
Under current law, people tak-
ing the safety class could get a
temporary permit before taking
the three-day course. Come July
1, those temporary permits will
be useless.
The course supplies its own
motorcycles and tackles maneu-
vering, braking, proper apparel,
obstacle avoidance, traffic strate-
gies and responsibility.

diver's school at (305) 271-4311.

r e : some sun exposure; it's our primary source of
vitamin D, which helps us absorb calcium for stronger, healthier
bones. Most kids rack up between 50% and 80% of their lifetime
sun exposure before age 18, so it's important that parents teach
their children how to enjoy fun in the sun safely. With the right
precautions, our Florida Key's kids and grown -ups can safely play
in the sun. Here are the most effective strategies:

First, avoid being in the sun for prolonged times when it's highest
overhead and therefore the strongest. If kids are in the sun between
the hours of 10am 4pm, be sure to apply protective sunscreen -
even if they're just playing in the backyard:Most sun damage occurs
as a result of incidental exposure during day-to-day activities, not at
the beach.

One of the best ways to protect your family from the sun is to cover
up and shield skin from UV rays. Ensure that clothes will screen out
harmful UV rays by placing your hand inside the garments and making
sure you can't see it through them.

What matters most in a sunscreen is the degree of protection from
UV rays it provides and that it is applied correctly.

Sun exposure damages the eyes as well as the skin. Even 1 day in the
sun can result in a burned cornea (the outermost, clear membrane
layer of the eye).

Some medications increase the skin's sensitivity to UV rays. As a
result,even kids with skin that tends not to burn easily can develop
a severe sunburn in just minutes when taking certain medications.
Fair-skinned kids, of course, are even more vulnerable.

Burnett wants
2nd appraisal
of the island.
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
A report from City Manager
Clyde Burnett about a second
financial appraisal for Boot Key.
An earlier appraisal done by
Waronker & Rosen Inc. released
in June valued the island at $3.4
million with bridge access and
$1.47 without. Finance Director
Peter Rosasco said the island's
three parcel owners would likely
have one done and the city should
do another to support it8 own.
The bridge to the island is in
disrepair and has been closed
since December 2007 to traffic of
any kind, even pedestrian.
Figures as high as $10 million
have been floated to complete
repairs. The city doesn't want to
spend the money so is consider-
ing just buying the island instead.
One Boot Key landowner,
Keys Radio Group owner Joe
Nascone, has threatened the city
with a lawsuit if it chooses not to
repair the bridge.
According to Waronker &
Rosen's appraisal, Nascone's
property was the only one to lose
significant value because of no
bridge access $2.42 million
with it versus $605,000 without it.
An ordinance allowing
Burnett to grant limited waivers
of building permit fees for non-
profit organizations in the city.
The ordinance states nonprofit
groups with a 501(c)3 designa-
tion through the Internal Revenue
Service can apply for waivers

Body found, foul
play not suspected

The body of a 50-year-old
homeless man was found Friday
morning floating just off shore,
across the highway from the Key
Haven Boat Ramp.
There were no obvious signs
of foul play but an autopsy will
be done to determine the cause of
death, according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office. His
name is being withheld pending
notification of next of kin.
Detectives say they spoke to


friends who say the man was
swimming Thursday night when
he disappeared. He and the
friends he was swimming with
live in homeless encampments
around the ramp.
The witnesses said he swam
into a culvert that goes under
U.S. 1 from the vicinity of the
ramp and he never came out. His
friends searched for him on both
sides of the highway, then report-
ed him missing at 8:45 p.m.
Thursday.
His body floated up on the
bayside of the highway at 8:22
a.m. Friday.


An ordinance requiring
property owners to maintain
mangroves and preventing them
from blocking navigable water-
ways.
The Florida Department of

landscape architect.
A resolution to amend the
city's purchasing policy, which
requires council approval for pur-

The amendment calls for
Burnett to be able to approve pur-

existing contracts up to $25,000.
It also would allow for a monthly
report of all renewals, change
orders and extensions he
approves.
A resolution to approve the
first phase of the U.S. 1 median

Committee Chairman Peter
Chapman to conduct initial proj-

$50,000.
The committee plans to plant
trees in the U.S. 1 median and
will ask citizens and businesses
to match the $50,000 contribu-
tion by the city.

Sewer could close business


Laundry would
be assessed
for 31.7 EDUs
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The future of Marathon's last
remaining coin laundry remains
uncertain after a Thursday spe-
cial meeting of the City Council
to discuss assessment methddol-
ogy for its ongoing sewer con-
struction.
Maytag Clean Laundry
owner Donna Farmer learned
Thursday the city has deter-
mined her business, at U.S. 1
and 60th Street, will be assessed
for 31.7 equivalent dwelling
units, or EDUs. Commercial
properties will pay EDUs based
on a three-year historical aver-
age of water flow.
"Part of the point of an
assessment program is to charge
.people for what exists today. If
later they decide to use less,
we've already built it and it has
to be paid for," city Finance
Manager Cindy Lawson said.


Farmer said she is torn
whether to commit to the 27-
year-old family business
because whether or not it suc-
ceeds after sewers are installed,
the property owner still must pay
the assigned EDU charge..
: "I understand it's a tough sit-
uation, but what really con-
cerned me is the long-term
financing. I don't own the prop-
erty," Farmer said. "We would
have to make out an arrange-
ment and if I was not able to stay
open that assessment was on his
property."
"It's very valuable to the
working people here, I would
hate to see it be closed down,"
she added.
Farmer's laundry lies on the
edge of Area 4 of the city sewer
project, which was the first area
to begin construction. Weiler
Engineering, the city's waste-
water system designer, has said
Area 4 is expected to be com-
plete by November 2009, with
the area near the laundry slated
for construction between April
and July 2009.


Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said she would like the
city to work with Farmer on her
assessment, if possible.
"It's an unusual business as
far as water usage is concerned.
It does serve a public purpose,"
.Tempest said. "I'm not sure how
to weigh that, but we have to
make a decision how to treat this
particular business."
Vice Mayor Chris Bull point-
ed out that Coins Laundry in
Little Venice was unable to stay
open due to high costs after that
area was sewered.
"I think it's a needed business
in this town ... and we need to
learn from our mistakes," he
said.
Mayor Pete Worthington sug-
gested if a substantial invest-
ment is made and a business
fails, the owner be allowed to
recoup those losses.
"There ought to be a way of
that person being able to recover
[and] redistribute those EDUs,"
he said.
According to a staff presenta-
tion at the meeting, council is
expected to officially adopt
sewer fees June 24.

CRUISER TOTALED: This Key West police car was totaled
Thursday night after a man driving a silver Chevy pickup
hit it from behind at mile marker 10.5. Officer Mark Rauen
was on his way home about 6:50 p.m. when he slowed
down behind a driver who was making a left turn. He was
hit from behind and the trunk of his 2005 Chevrolet Impala
crunched. The cruiser was pushed into the vehicle in front
of it, which sustained minor damage. The driver of the
Chevy, Michael Siegrist of Summerland Key, told the
Florida Highway Patrol he'd bent down to adjust his knee
brace and that when he looked up it was too late to stop.
He was given a ticket for careless driving.

The reef, global warming:


A possible connection?


Australian.
expert checks
Keys' health
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A changing global climate
may have profound effects on the
Florida Keys coral reef, an
Australian researcher says, but at
least people are paying attention.
"People are concerned about
tourism and the reef, of course,"
economist Hans Hoegh-Guldberg
said after his first Keys workshop_
Friday in Islamorada.
"But one positive thing about
the environment is that people
here see is an increasing environ-
mental consciousness on both the
corporate and personal level,"
Hoegh-Guldberg said. "People
are taking more and more
notice."
Hoegh-Guldberg will spend
this week in the Keys to conduct
four more workshops with resi-
dents as part of a scenario-plan-
ning process commissioned by
the National Marine Sanctuaries
Program of the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration.
"That means developing a set


of alternative possible future
worlds from 'best case' to 'worst
case,' all equally credible and
equally likely to occur," said
Hoegh-Guldberg. "We must plan
to avert the worst and encourage
the best."
His son, Ove Hoegh-
Guldberg, is one of Australia's
most renowned coral researchers.
Together, they prepared a similar
report on Australia's Great
Barrier Reef that was well
received at the 2004 International
Coral Reef Conference.
The 350-page Australia report
outlines possible effects of cli-
mate change on the reef and how
various future scenarios may alter
businesses and communities that
depend on the reef.
The two-year process for a
Keys report began in November.
"In building these scenarios, it
is essential to extend the perspec-
tive all the way from a global
view ... right through to the local
scene," Hoegh-Guldberg said.
He plans to meet with local
officials, reef experts and an
array of residents at sessions in
Marathon, Key Largo, Key West
and the Lower Keys.
"We had a good group of var-
ious people" at the Islamorada


workshop, he said. "They sort of
bounced things off each other. It
was positive and very useful.
"There also was concern about
the reef. If the reef deteriorates
further, obviously there will be
consequences,"
Science, socioeconomics and
tourism surveys all play a role in
the scenario planning. One metric
is the "impsat," or importance-
satisfaction rating. It weighs a
respondent's opinion on an
issue's importance and whether
he or she is satisfied with the
existing situation.
"We are seeking the real issues
affecting the long-term future, of
the Florida Keys," Hoegh-
Guldberg said.
That includes possible scenar-
ios if half the reef's coral cover
disappears, or the coral dies off
completely.
He defines the study's goal as
"to create a firm scientific, envi-
ronmental and socioeconomic
base for assessment of long-term
futures 10, 20, 50 and more years
ahead."
One factor he readily
acknowledges: "It's an unpre-
dictable world."

Still no way
to predict rapid
storm growth
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The science of predicting hur-
ricanes has greatly advanced
over the years with one signifi-
cant exception, says Robert
Atlas, director at one of the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration's
main research laboratories.
"We haven't been able to
accurately forecast [storm]
intensity, particularly rapid
intensification," said Atlas,
director of the Atlantic
Oceanographic and
Meteorological Laboratory. in
Miami. "The last thing we want
to see is something like the 1935
hurricane hit, the Keys now and
not have people evacuate."
The warning came during the
latest Keys hurricane prepared-
ness meeting, this one held
Monday at the Key Largo library
by U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen.
There were the usual sus-
pects: National Hurricane Center
Director Bill Read discussed the
2008 season outlook (above
average at 13 named storms,
seven hurricanes and three


intense storms) and Matt
Strahan, meteorologist in charge
of the Key West National
Weather Service office, gave a
historical look at storms affect-
ing the Keys.
Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro, Emergency
Management Director Irene
Toner and Administrator Roman
Gastesi promoted coordination
between Keys, state and federal
agencies during evacuations.
Fishermen's Hospital Chief
Executive Officer Kim Bassett
reminded those attending that
Keys hospitals and emergency
rooms will not be open before
and immediately after an evacu-
ation.
Heather Carruthers from Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe dis-
cussed recent windstorm insur-
ance changes.
And state Rep. Ron Saunders
talked about state resources such
as www.mysafefloridahome
.com, and.Ros-Lehtinen touted
her "hurricane six-pack" of bills
she said fund hurricane research
and protect homeowners' rights.
Most of the presentations
promoted evacuation, but Atlas
and Read provided some key
reasons for it with examples
from last year's hurricane season
that was uneventful for the Keys
but significant in terms of storm


study.
Hurricane Humberto became
one of the fastest-developing
storms on record to be ,so close
to land, as it strengthened from a
35 mph tropical depression to a
90 mph hurricane in fewer than
24 hours before hitting the coast
of Texas Sept. 13, according to
weather reports.
"There was nothing to show a
90 mph hurricane would hit the
Texas coast," said Read, who
added Hurricane Felix was
another lesson earlier in the sea-
son.
"At 48 hours away [from
landfall] on Felix, we were fore-
casting a Category 1," Read
said. "It was a Category 5.
We've got to solve this problem
of rapid intensification."
Atlas said forecasters now
predict only 30 percent of the
rapid intensification that can
occurs in some storms. And of
those predictions, about 80 per-
cent are incorrect.
He said his office is investing
in improved numerical models,
high-definition computer sys-
tems and other technology, to
bring those percentages to 90
percent and 10 percent, respec-
-tively, while also helping to
"sharpen the cone" of error used
in hurricane track forecasting.
"This is my personal research
goal and NOAA's research
goal," he said.

Republic was
a tad different-
from- other
cities, like,
say, Tualatin,
A-, Ore.
1 In Oregon,
she was
degreasing
HURD and producing
stainless steel
parts. Co-workers asked her why
she didn't do drugs, and a near-
by sign in the factory stated that
all employees were required to
wear protective facemasks. No
one ever gave her one.
She says he adventurous
story began in New York, where
she worked at a Brooklyn per-
forming arts center, eventually
becoming executive assistant to
the center's president. She
rounded 47 states and then fell in
love with the Southernmost City.
Her story of coming to Key
West sounds like those of many
residents.
"I was supposed to stay for a
week," she says.
Hurd stayed at the Seashell
Motel and Hostel on South
Street, "where the toilets over-
flowed." She searched for a job,
finally landing one at the front
desk of Duval Street's Wicker
Guesthouse.
Her explanation for leaving
paints a common, unfortunate
scenario.
Hurd, who had rented all her
life, found a three-bedroom,
two-bathroom house for
$120,000 in Avon Park in
Central Florida that would be
a miracle in Key West.
But she couldn't leave the


island previously because she
couldn't afford the move.
"It took me 10 years before
my salary could rise to what I
was making at a nonprofit the-
ater in.New York," she said.
Hurd has a 6-year-old daugh-
ter who goes to Poinciana
Elementary School and, due to
families moving out of Key
West, her class has dwindled
from 20 students to five.
Before Hurd and her daughter
settle into their new home,
they're taking a long, summer
road trip'. As for a new job, Hurd
is confident she'll find one.
"Claire's going to be a big
loss to us," City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez said. "She's
always been so helpful."
"She's the backbone behind
our resolutions," Mayor Morgan
McPherson said. "She's the go-
to lady, full of historical knowl-
edge."
Before she was keeping city
officials informed, she often
found herself broke.
A can of "meat food product"
sat in the trunk of her car, an
aqua Ford Festiva. If she ever ate
the mysterious contents of the
can a step below Spam she
would've considered that the
final straw and gone home. But
the can remains unopened.
Leaving Key West won't be
easy; she'll have to say goodbye
to the entertaining public-nudity
legal cases and the colorful char-
acters.
Avon Park isn't as busy as
Key West, she says. That means
hopefully she'll have more time
to dedicate to her book about her
travels and American work
experiences.

Red Cross leaving Tavernier


But blood bank
coming despite
down economy
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

One public health nonprofit is
leaving the Upper Keys while
another is moving in.
The American Red Cross of
Greater Miami and the Keys is
closing its Tavernier office at the
end of June due to dwindling
donations and funding cuts stem-
ming from a poor economy, Keys
chapter advancement officer J.B.
Hunt said.
Around the same time, the
Community Blood Centers of
South Florida will open an office
in Islamorada to help meet grow-
ing needs of blood donations in
South Florida and the Keys,
group representatives said.
The Red Cross has had a pres-
ence in the Upper Keys for
decades and since the 1970s
operated out of its own building
near mile marker 94, Hunt said.
The Upper Keys chapter merged
with the Miami-based chapter in
1992.
In 2004, the Upper Keys
building closed due to mold con-
tamination and the organization
moved to a temporary office in
Tavernier.
Hunt said a steady decrease in
private donations and public con-
tributions has made the $900
monthly rent and .one-person
salary unaffordable for the non-
profit.
"Most of our funding is all
local community fundraising,
with some corporate donations,"
Hunt said. "Overall fundraising is
down, and we can attribute a lot
of that to the economy."
Hunt said the Red Cross'had
also received about $30,000 the
past few years from Monroe
County. That funding was cut to
about $5,000 this year, she said.
"We asked for $32,000. That's
exactly how much we thought we
would use to help victims of sin-
gle-family [home] fires," Hunt
said. "We are helping a family of
four right now. It will be hard to
continue that without those
funds."
However, Hunt said closure of
the Tavernier office wouldn't sig-
nificantly impact services offered
to the Upper Keys. However, vol-
unteers and others who want


Upper Keys-specific information
would have to contact the Key
West office or use the chapter's
Web site from now on.
The Red Cross will continue
to have an office in Key West.
But while the economy is
affecting some groups, it seems
the business of collecting blood is
recession-proof.
"We don't get -funding from
government sources or anything
like that. Basically, it's a matter
of growth in order for our organ-
ization to be able to take care of
all the needs for the hospitals we
serve," said Assistant Director of
Keys Operations Nancy
Brundage, who will take over as
director in July.
According to Brundage, the
Community Blood Centers pro-
vides 100 percent of the whole
blood, plasma and platelets to
medical patients in Monroe
County's three hospitals. The
group provides 95 percent of the
blood from South Miami-Dade to
Palm Beach.
Brundage said the new office
near mile marker 82 would add
six more staff members and a sec-
ond "bloodmobile" donation bus
to the one already stationed in
Key West.
Also, frequent donors with
rare or needed blood types are
often contacted by Community
Blood Centers in emergencies. In

that case, residents won't have to
drive to Key West or Miami to
donate.
Upper Keys Area Manager
DeeDee Ellis said the new office
was actually a smart business
move, as one in three Keys resi-

Toast the new Cocktails!

"We came to Key West to get
away from drugs and booze,"
jokes Kent Henry, co-owner of
the newly opened store
Cocktails! Key West at 808
Duval St.
Henry and his partner Stan
Wellman opened Cocktails! on
April 21 in the space next door to
Towels of Key West, which
they've operated since 1986.
Before coming to Key West,
Henry owned and operated the
Talbot Street bar in Indianapolis
and presided over the Miss Gay
Indiana pageant. The inspiration
for the new store is, he says, Key
West itself.
"Twenty-two years on Duval
Street, we've noticed that people
like their cocktails," he says.
Well, it didn't take that long to
notice, really, but they've had 22
years to confirm it.
Cocktails! Key West may be
the first store of its kind in the
country selling only items
related to drink making. It's full
of curiosities and wonderful gift
ideas.
There's a leather-jacketed
flask that also serves as a holder
of golf tees. There are olive-orna-
mented "slippers" to grasp the
base of your cocktail glass and

He says friends are joking
with them saying, "The boys are
finally doing something they
know something about."
Cocktails! as it now exists is
more for the person looking for a
few things for a home bar or for a
unique gift than for the working
bartender. There are no Boston
shakers, for example, with meas-
uring glasses that fit onto mixing
tins that most pros use behind the
bar. And there isn't a large stock
of basic clear glassware and
stemrnware.
But the store, Henry says, is
still taking shape.
"It's a start," he says. "We
really wanted to get it to this level
and then tweak it." And he says
they're open to hearing from
local bartenders what items they
use and need.
As with the towel store, the
owners are selling items they've
designed themselves. So on the
low front table there's a collec-

Conch Republic logo, and clear
old fashioned and highball glass-

There are also glass-look-alike
polycarbonate glasses perfect for

Keys make a Kenya connection

Marathon students hope to put faraway counterparts through school


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon High School's
Interact Club has loftier goals
than anyone might expect a stu-
dent club to have: It aims to spon-
sor all four years of high school
for up to 20 Kenyan students in
their native Marsabit Valley.
Club President Katie
Greenman says schooling is cost-
prohibitive in the African nation,
where the average income is just
$360 per year.
"To go to high school, they
have to apply or get accepted.
And if they don't, they can go to
a public school with 800 students
and 10 teachers, and that's
impractical," she said.
The Kamboe Primary School,
the focus of the Interact Club's
efforts, is in a tiny village made
up of cow-dung huts and "all

these different tribes that live in

Greenman says.
The Interact Club's h.e.l.l.o.
Africa program was born when
members "adopted" the initiative
of Green-man's nonprofit organi-
zation to provide schooling for
underprivileged children.
Greenman started that group,
Hands on Hands, with her sisters
in 2003 and in 2006 raised
$10,000 to build a dormitory for
students at the school.
. Club sponsor and math
teacher Amanda Hirschauer said
she became involved because of
the international component.
"They were supposed to do
one international project a year.
That was the initial stages of

Peace Festival
starts June 13
in Tavernier
The Upper Keys-based group
Keys to Peace continues its
efforts to create a more "peace-
able community" with its inaugu-
ral Keys to Peace Festival, taking
place June 13 to 15.
It features a dinner and talk by


Harvard University Buddhist
Chaplain Lama Migmar Tseten, a
peace-flag raising ceremony,
"Peace Academy" classes and a
"peace paddle" kayaking event.
Keys to Peace follows a
national movement for the cre-
ation of a Cabinet-level U.S.
Department of Peace and
Nonviolence. Members model
the concept of what the depart-
ment would actually do and
accomplish by supporting local
violence-prevention and peace-
making efforts such as the
Monroe Youth Challenge
Program, which teaches diversity
and tolerance. It's supported by
the Student Peace Alliance at
Coral Shores High School in
Tavemier.
Here's the festival schedule:
+ June 13: Dinner at 6:15

Train to respond
to emergencies

Learning basic first aid and
cardiopulmonary resuscitation,
and how to use an automated
external defibrillator, can mean
the difference between life and
death, for someone suffering
from sudden cardiac arrest or
another medical emergency.
Toward that end, the
American Red Cross in Key
West is offering classes this
week to help get people pre-
pared for such an emergency.
Having the skills means you
can be a vital first responder,
especially if you're out on a
boat or at another remote loca-
tion.
A CPR and defibrillator
class is planned for 6 to 10
p.m. Tuesday at the Red Cross
office, 5450 McDonald Ave.,
Unit 11. A class in basic first


aid is from 6 to 9 p.m.
Wednesday at the same loca-
tion. Cost for each is $45. To
sign up, call 296-4033.

Mental health
group forms

The Guidance Clinic of the
Middle Keys' Personal Growth
Center is starting a weekly
National Association for
Mental Health support group
that will meet Tuesdays from
1:15 to 2:15 p.m. at the center,
at the clinic next to the
Marathon Community Park.
It's a recovery group for all
adults with mental illness,
regardless of their diagnoses.
The meetings are led by Wayne
Lewis, in recovery himself. No
registration or enrollment is
required. Call 434-9063 for
more information.


ing of a peace flag and a color
guard with American flags.
Tseten will preside over the flag
ceremony. Montessori students

To Peace" written by Rev. RJ.
Starr.
Peace Academy classes will
-commence at 11 a.m. at the
Montessori school. They'll focus
on providing practical ways to
increase inner peace, as well as
peace in the family, the work-
place and the community. Tseten
will lead two classes on medita-
tion and 10 other instructors will
share their expertise.
Most of the classes will be
geared to adults, although one for
parents and children will be
offered.
Cost is $5 per class, with a dis-
counted package for students
who attend four classes. And in
honor of Father's Day, tuition
will be waived for fathers.
Members of the Student Peace
Alliance will sell box lunches.
June 15: Informal "peace

Quality schooling
in Kenya is hard
to come by,.as
students must -.
apply to and be
accepted to
private high
schools that
often cost more
than the $360 -
annual median ".'
family income '5
there. Marathon
High School's '
Interact Club r
aims to sponsor "
up to 20 students
through all four .: .,
years of high "'-"
school in their 4_
native Africa.


Goal is to raise $20,000


INTERACT / From 24

we achieve our goal of sponsor-
ing the incoming class of fresh-
men over there to get through
high school for four years,"
Hirschauer said.
She said the plan for now is to
fund 25 percent of the students'
costs in their freshman year and
increase it to 50, 75 and 100 per-
cent their remaining years.
"If we have more, we'll help
out more with each student and
possibly donate even more
money for the freshman year,"
Hirschauer said.
Thanks to a successful benefit
dinner held at the high school last
weekend, the club is $6,000 clos-
er to its $20,000 goal. Greenman
said roughly 120 tickets ranging
from $15 to $30 were sold and
various donations came from
area businesses.
For the dinner, club members
dressed in African garb donated
by the Marathon Community
Theatre. Guests were treated to a
five-course meal. Local students
entertained the crowd before
Marathon singer Vanessa Di
Gennaro took the stage.
Besides its Africa initiative,
the Interact Club does work
locally, including working with
Keys Area Interdenominational
Resources, known as KAIR, to
put together dinner baskets dur-
ing Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It also lends a hand to the Rotary
Club when called upon.
Hirschauer said she's proud of
what the students have accom-


polished with h.e.l.l.o. Africa,
given the magnitude of the proj-
ect.
"A lot of people think these
kids don't do a lot, but they're
capable of more than I thought
they were. It was a really big
thing," she said. "It was a three-
month process of planning, and


contacting- people, working with
adults and asking for help and
resources and I was really
impressed with the way they han-
dled things with maturity."

Russell debuts


her first novel


'Tour de Passion'
draws on her
personal story

Local author Wendy Taylor
Russell will sign her first
novel, "Tour de Passion," from
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 14 at
Hooked on Books at mile
marker .81.9 oceanside in
Islamorada.
Russell is a former reporter
for Keys newspapers and in
2004 ran for the Islamorada
Village Council. She now
works as office manager at
Atlantic Davits and Boatlifts of
the Keys in Tavernier.
'Local artist Janet Doto, who
designed and created the
book's cover, will appear with
Russell on June 14.
"Tour De Passion" fictional-
izes Russell's own departure
from the married world she
knew into the single realm, the
very thought of which terrified
her.
In the novel, the main char-
acter, a wife and mother, sets
out on a trip to the French
countryside, visiting many
chateaus and touring Paris with
her mother, aunt and sister.
During her travels, an over-
whelming sorrow and frustra-
tion form inside her. Beside her
happily married pregnant sis-
ter, all Candace -wants is to
maintain her sanity.


IBj A few days
into their
Candace
escapades,
grows more
excited by the
-.. conversation
and touch of
French bus
SRUSSELL driver Andre,
a dashing
man with whom she begins to
fall in love.
After returning to her home
in the Keys, where Candace
lives with her family, a hurri-
cane rolls through. As the shut-
ters shake and the walls whine,
she realizes how unhappy she
has become next to her hus-
band.
Russell says she fictional-
ized her own passionate tour in
hopes of sending a message to
all women frustrated in their
marriages or relationships that
they must be true to them-
selves, above all.
Born and raised in
Evansville, Ind., Russell
earned her bachelor's degree in
journalism from Indiana
University in 1985. For the
past 20 years, she has lived in
the Keys where she has volun-
teered on several boards and
for special events. She's a
divorced mother with two
teenagers.

COLLEGE CASH: Members bf the Monroe County Education Foundation present a check
to Jimmy Hirschbeck for deposit in his college account at Key West High School. He's a Take
Stock in Children scholar who will graduate this month and attend Florida Atlantic

Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Tickets lost to an airline
bankruptcy cannot keep a
Florida Keys girls soccer team
from a national championship
tournament nearly 5,000 miles
away. -
"Our girls are very excited,"
said Laura Lietaert, assistant
coach and regional
commissioner for the American
Youth Soccer Organization.


"They've been working very
hard all year, both at practice
and fundraising."
The Upper Keys Under-16
girls squad heads for Honolulu
for the AYSO National Games
tournament July 6 to 13 to take
on 23 other teams in their age
group.
Eight players on the roster
of 13 hoisted the national-
championship trophy for the
Under-14 group in the last
AYSO national event, in
Chicago in 2006.
Arthur Paterson is the
team's head coach.

Opera descends on the tropics


Young singers
start series
of concerts
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


The opera singers
descended on Key West
on Sunday, May 31, just
as everyone else was leaving,
and on Monday in the midday
heat they were walking the
sun-baked pathways behind
St. Paul's church in formal
wear tuxedos and gowns
that brushed the pavement.
Monday was the first day
of the ninth annual Young
Artists Opera Program led by
Sebrina Alfonso, founder of
the Key West Symphony
Orchestra. The 22 singers,
most of them master's stu-
dents from around the coun-
try, have come here for four
weeks of workshops and per-
formances. This year, for the
first time, the group includes
a local Ralph Garcia, Jr.


who grew up in Key West and
just completed his junior year
at DePauw University in
Indiana, where he's on a
music scholarship.
The opera singers began
intensive voice training on
Monday, June 2 and were to
perform the first of several
concerts in Key West on

Things learned
One of the most versatile col-
ors in the artist's palette is
phthalocyanine blue. The improb-
able spelling is usually reduced to
"thalo." There is also a thalo
green. It's a deep hue that glows
when thinned and mixes well.
Artists' paints are named for
the mineral that supplies the
color. Phthalocyanine is a bright
greenish-blue crystalline com-


pound ((C6H4C2N)4N4H2) that,.,
is also used as a coating for CD-
ROMs.
It was first reported in 1907
and is described by chemist Neil
McKeown as "a beautifully
symmetrical 18 (-electron aro-
matic macrocycle." Read more
at McKeown's Web site www
.phthalocyanine.com. He
notes its use as dyes and pig-
ments and as a photoconductor
in laser printers as well as a
coating on CDs.
Phthalocyanine is also a
Brooklyn, N.Y. band recording
very trippy techno music which
can be sampled at www.my
space.comlphthalocyanine.
A UK Web site describes its
use in anti-cancer treatments.

Three Keys teams traveling


SOCCER / From 33

"I can't think of any other
teams from the Keys that have
won national championships in
anything, and some of these
girls have done it twice,"
Lietaert said, noting a 2004
title.
Efforts to reassemble most
of the 2006 roster took a hit
when advance tickets
purchased for the tournament
trip were lost to ATA Airlines'
bankruptcy in April.
"That really stinks," Lietaert
said. "Some families said they
couldn't afford to pay for their
tickets twice."
Players from the 2006 title
team suiting up again in 2008
will be Shelby Ragan, Kelley
Struyf, Stephanie Lietaert,
Jasmine Paterson, Heather
Williams, Chelsea Russell,
Cerene Arsenault and Kelsey Jo
Miller.
Joining the 2008 team are
Allie Ingram, Margarita Cisne,
Jessie Boone, Laurel Malea and


Caroline Koslowski.
Two teams based in
Marathon boys and girls
teams in the Under-14 group -
also will play in Honolulu.


'It's important
for our girls
to get the
recognition
they deserve

as athletes.'
- Stephanie Lietaert


"All three teams are more
like a Keys United team,"
Lietaert said. "We've got
players from Key West,
Marathon and the Upper Keys."


Local businesses, especially
Publix in Key Largo, have
assisted efforts to raise money
for the trip, Lietaert said. "The
support has been outstanding,"
she said.
Games will be played in
fields overlooking Pearl
Harbor.
"It's important for our girls
to get the recognition they
deserve as athletes," Lietaert
said. "Every year, more girls
are earning college
scholarships. The more success
we have at national events
helps our girls get noticed."
The AYSO .is one of the
largest youth-soccer
organizations in the country,
citing a registration of more
than 650,000 boys and girls
players.
Lietaert said Keys soccer
boosters already have received
one bit of good news the
next round of national*
championships in 2010 will
'much closer to home, in West
Palm Beach.
