The old adage that all politics
are local has hit with bullet force
in the Keys this year: Twenty-
seven seats are coming open for
Monroe County voters, and.
there's no shortage of hopefuls
looking to win the people's
choice award in either the
August primary or November
general election.
"This is a very crowded elec-
tion," says Monroe County
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer, himself looking for four
more years. Democrat Henry
Woods of Key West has filed
papers to run against Sawyer,
the Republican incumbent.
Along with all of those open
seats -everything from Key
Largo sewer board to Marathon
City Council to Congress -
come a potential nine referen-
dums to change the state
Constitution, from codifying

County shortfall: $12.5M


Service cuts,
tax increases
on the table
By WAYNE MARKHAM
wmarkham@keynoter.com


Monroe County's past spend-
ing habits are coming back to
haunt county policy makers,
who learned Friday they face a


$12.5 million budget crunch.
Based on this year's $79.1
million in property tax revenue,
reducing county spending by
that much for budget year 2008-
09 represents a 15 percent cut.
"It's scary," said County
Commissioner George Neugent,
who found out about the magni-
tude of the financial problems at
the same time he learned a budg-


et workshop scheduled for next
was being canceled.
"We're in serious financial
trouble," he added. "It does not
look good."
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi said the June 19 work-
shop was canceled to give him
and his staff more time to dig
into the numbers.
He pointed to county spend-

Tempest running again


Three seats
are up on the
City Council
Keynoter Staff


Marathon City Councilwoman
Marilyn Tempest has filed with
the Monroe County Supervisor of
Elections to seek reelection to a
second two-year term.
The incumbent said she hopes
to continue the council's work
and "bring a moderate voice to
the council."'


"I decided to run again for two
reasons," Tempest said. "I find it
very satisfying, rewarding work
[and] the other thing is I think
people should have as wide a
choice of candidates as possible."
She says she was happy to see
newcomer Ginger Snead enter
the fray because "the town is
healthy when ,solid, working peo-
ple get involved." Also declared
so far for the nonpartisan, at-
lodge election are "Bicycle"
Joanie Nelson and Kevin
Woodland, both of whom have


run in the past.
Tempest, along with fellow
council members Vice Mayor
Chris Bull and Pete Worthington,
has been in favor of moving for-
ward with sewers for quite some
time once an unpopular stance
with residents. All three are up
for reelection, though only
Tempest has filed at this point.
"We've made a good start; it's
been as economical as we could
do for the citizens. I'd like to see
it through and my main concern
is to keep costs down," she said.
The Marathon City Council
election will take place Nov. 4.

have?" she asked Garcia. "My
life will never be the same."
Now dependent on a wheel-
chair, she described her difficulty
in showering and using the bath-
room alone. She says her "mem-
ory is very bad," sometimes
struggling to find her physical
therapy center. Her ex-husband,
Billie Bowman, said she's lost 17
years of memory from the crash
on Big Coppitt Key.
"For the past 36 years, I've
been a public servant in this com-
munity," LaTorre said. "I think
about [the accident] every day of
my life ... I will have this to bear
for the rest of my life."
Several of his friends and fam-
ily members also spoke -on his
behalf, many of them emphasiz-
ing his remorse, saying that if he
could trade places with Bowman,
he would.
At 2:45 a.m. April 15, 2006,
LaTorre was driving southbound
in the northbound lane of U.S. 1
at mile marker 8. Bowman was
driving north in the proper lane,
and they hit head-on.
Bowman had to be removed
from her car by the Jaws of Life
and was in a coma for weeks, suf-
fering severe injuries and brain
damage.
Two separate tests showed
LaTorre's blood alcohol level to
be 0.101 and 0.102. Driving with
blood-alcohol levels of 0.08 or
higher is illegal in Florida.
Cocaine also was found in his
system.
Defense attorney Richard
Hersch called the case "paradox-
ical," saving that bars and an

received five years.


environment that promotes social
drinking makes what happened
the morning of the crash some-
thing that could have happened to
anyone.
"Society is not to blame,"
prosecutor Manny Madruga said.
"People have a choice and Louis
LaTorre made a choice that
evening that caused catastrophic
damage.... We are not here for an
accident; we're here for a crime.
There's been no acknowledge-
ment in this case from the defen-
dant that he committed this
crime."
Janet Mondshien, executive


director of Mothers Against
Drunk Driving, came down from
Miami to witness the sentencing.
"Every minute someone is
injured in an alcohol-related
crash," she said.
At his trial, Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson, City
Commissioner Mark Rossi and
City Manager Jim Scholl testified
they saw LaTorre that night at
several lower Duval Street bars.
On top of his prison sentence,
LaTorre's driver's license will be
revoked for five years and he
must complete 18 months of pro-
bation upon release from prison.

BUDGET /From I

ing practices "for the past five
years," noting that each year to
balance the books, the county
dipped into reserves.
"What happened is we
depleted our savings," Gastesi
told the Keynoter Friday,
adding the drawdown was
close to $8 million in the cur-
rent budget year.
Last year,. County Clerk
Danny Kolhage, butting heads
with then-Administrator Tom
Willi, warned of a $10 million
shortfall if county spending
continued to eat into reserves.
Gastesi, who started his job
as Willi's replacement May
12, said the $12.5 million esti-
mate for- next year includes
$1%.5 million that should be put
back into the reserve accounts.
"Right now, more or less,
we have [reserves] equivalent
to three, four months," Gastesi
said. "That's tight. No local
government should be in that
financial position."
Willi was fired Dec. 5 at a
County Commission meeting
n Key West. Because he was
terminated without cause, the
county wound up paying him
$282,000 in severance.
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy just learned of the
budget shortfall this week.
"We should have handled
some of this last year, but by
the time we did, we got
demoralized and now we'll
have to do it again," Murphy
said.
The longtime Key Largo
resident said the county has
never faced a budget cut as
large as the potential $12.5
million figure she's heard.
"It might be time to take
some divisions and put them
together," she said.
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
said "we have to cut expenses;


we have to-"slim down and be
more efficient. But we also
have to increase revenue.
That's what this county has
been lacking."
Without giving away
specifics, Gastesi said the
budget crunch is so severe that
closing the gap will require
"various measures, including
millage rate and service
adjustments."
Increasing county tax rates
above the rollback rate would
require a super-majority vote
of the commission, which
means at least four of the five
voting to increase taxes.
Rollback is the tax rate that
would generate the same
amount of tax revenue next
year as this year.
This year's millage rate of
2.73 ($273 per $1,000 of
assessed property value) gen-
erated $79 million of unincor-
porated Monroe County's
overall budget of $329.4 mil-
lion.
The county administrator's
talk about "service adjust-
ments" hints at cuts in county
services.
Murphy said she's heard
one idea being vetted that
would transfer portions 6f the
county's in-home services care
to an outside vendor. That pro-
gram operates under the
Department of Social Services
and provides support services
to frail, impaired elderly (age
60-plus) and/or disabled
adults (ages 18 to 59).
Neugent said he's heard
talk about further reducing
library services, park hours
and other county programs,
which he said will "trigger
some serious grief."
Eyeing the budget he inher-
ited, depleted reserves and the
state mandate to further reduce
local taxes, Gastesi described
the county's financial forecast
as "the perfect storm."

Man dies at site where work was ordered halted


Evidence of
workers' comp
wasn't there
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A construction worker died
after a three-story fall June 7 at a
Little Torch Key building site -
which was under a Monroe
County stop-work order.
Charles E. Becker, 32, fell
from just below the roof of a
two-story home raised on stilts.
A ladder at the Buccaneer
Road property collapsed while
Becker was climbing down from
the roof, a witness told Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Deputy
Daniel Chu.
"After two steps down,
Charles fell back with the ladder
...[he landed] on the ground on
his back," Chu quoted witness
Carl Schror, an independent
engineering inspector. "The lad-
der fell to the side."
Big Pine Fire and Rescue
emergency medical technicians
performed cardiopulmonary
resuscitation at the scene but
Becker was pronounced dead
upon arrival at Fishermen's
Hospital.
Becker reportedly was from
Michigan and had been working


with a modular-home crew
based in Cape Coral.
Investigators are using call
records in his cell phone to
determine specifics of his ID.
Four other workers were on
the work site when Becker fell.
They all told Chu they were else-
where on the property and didn't
see anything.
On June 6, a contractor-com-
pliance officer with Monroe
County Code Enforcement
placed a stop-work order at the
construction site after determin-
ing "no one on the site had
[proof of] current workman's
compensation insurance," coun-
ty Growth Management Director
Andrew Trivette said.
"The job was asked to be but-
toned up and closed down until
compliance was reinstated,"
Trivette said. "As of Saturday,
the stop-work order had not been
lifted. They apparently contin-
ued to work" June 7.
The stop-work order remains
in effect, Trivette said. Violating
it is a civil infraction punishable
by fines.
The-building permit for the
property was issued to an owner-
builder, not to the general con-
tractor, Anchorage Homes of
Tavernier, Trivette said. The
name on the permit was not
immediately available at press


time.
Bill Liptak of Anchorage
Homes said Becker and the other
workers worked as independent
module-home installers.
The crew- apparently does
have workman's compensation
coverage, Liptak said, but the
stop-work order was issued
because there was no proof of
the coverage on site as required.
"I was aware of the stop-work


order," Liptak said. "I can't say
what happened Saturday. I was-
n't on the site."
At press time, no additional
code-enforcement action had
been filed.
A worker told Chu, the
deputy, that the ladder had been
nailed to the side of the house. "I
did see two bent nails in the area
where the ladder was," Chu
reported.


The contractor-compliance
officer recently started working
for Monroe County after build-
ing-permit fees were raised to
fund the position.
Florida Keys Contractors
Association members endorsed

Migrants, suspects
found at Cape Sable

Another group of Cuban
migrants showed in South Florida
Wednesday but not in a place they
usually do at Cape Sable in
Everglades National Park, on the
west side of the peninsula.
They were found about 8:15
a.m. on the cape's beach. There
were 14 men, nine women and
four juveniles ages 2 to 10.
Several of the migrants were treat-
ed for dehydration and all suffered
from mosquito bites, according to


the National Park Service.
While rangers mobilized, a
33-foot Avanti and 26-foot
Sunrunner were coming into the
Flamingo Marina; the Avanti was
towing a personal watercraft. The
boats' crews 10 people in all
- are suspected of smuggling
the migrants into the U.S. with
those boats. A GPS aboard the
Avanti showed a track going
from Cuba to East Cape Sable,
officials said.
The Avanti and Sunrunner
were seized, as were a personal
watercraft, three pickup trucks
and three trailers.

Keys Opinion


Once again, the feds

hooking our wallets

Bureaucracies exhibit an immutable law: They get bigger.
' And as they get bigger, they get further removed from their
original mission.
It will come as quite a surprise, then, when anglers see
today's Keynoter coverage about proposed changes in federal
fisheries law (Page 41).
This is not about circle hooks versus J-hooks. This is about
charging every angler, regardless of age, $15 to $25 to register
with the National Marine Fisheries Service, the marine
research arm of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration.
For nearly 30 years, the feds have conducted phone surveys
and personal interviews with anglers to gather information
about who fishes, what's being caught, how many fish are
caught, where and when people fish?
OK. Knowing more about the size of catches furthers fish-
eries research. And if that helps develop new ways to protect
stock from overfishing, most right-thinking fishermen would
support the idea.
But it's the execution that has us worried, especially watch-
ing a well-meaning bureaucracy showing symptoms of bloat.
Take the registry itself: "The registry will help improve data
collection by creating a universe of saltwater anglers essen-
tially a phonebook of fishermen that is updated each year."
Florida already gathers similar information by issuing salt-
water fishing licenses, which cost $17 a year. Florida also
exempts from this license requirement anglers who fish from
land, bridges or piers.
That's one reason cited by NOAA for the federal registry -
to capture those anglers who now slip the hook, so to speak.
And speaking of hooks, early results from the mandatory use
of circle hooks in the gulf for certain fish brought a pause in
federal efforts to impose the same ban on J-hooks in the
Atlantic fisheries.
This is a case where anglers voiced their concerns. Hooking
fish in the gut with circle hooks is not reducing fish mortality
rates.
Another reason to be a bit skeptical about this registry and the
fees proposed none of the money collected will actually go
to fisheries research.
Quoting from NOAA, that's because: "In general, fees from
any federal government program go back into the U.S.
Treasury and can be used for any federal program."
There's a possibility Florida can be exempt from the federal
registry fees, substituting our own state saltwater license regis-.
tration. But that would require Florida to end the license
exemption for anglers who fish from land, bridges or piers.
One way or the other, looks like bureaucrats have figured out
another way to set the hook in our wallets.

Marathon fire chief just makes excuses


EDITOR:
The destruction that occurred June 4 at
1130 Calle Ensenada in Marathon as a result
of a fire is unacceptable. One man's home
was destroyed and another man's possessions
were destroyed because the city of Marathon
does not have the necessary equipment to put
out a fire? Anyone that lives in Marathon
should be concerned about the possibility of
their house being destroyed by fire. I know I
am.
The fire chief is quoted in the Keynoter as
saying "The way it was approached, anyone
can second guess, but the plan was sound."
How can he possibly state that when the plan
did not work? The plan was not sound.
In response to the fire hose being 1,000
feet short of the home, he states "It's very dif-
ficult to tell what is 1,000 feet; there is just no
way." No, that answer is not acceptable. He
needs to know what it will take for a fire to
be put out at-every house in Marathon. He
needs to know how many feet it is going to
take to reach from every fire hydrant to every


house.
Do not get me wrong, I know the men and
women that are firefighters in this town; they
could have put that fire out if the city had the
right equipment. If we as a city need more
fire hydrants, let's get them; if we need a
pump-out truck, let's get one. Quit talking
about paying for feasibility studies, dog parks
and other non-essential things until we have
the proper infrastructure within the city to
keep the citizens' lives and residences safe.
Rocketman and his family will pull
through this because, for one, he is a strong
.man; and two, this community is pulling
together to help.
There are two fundraisers planned that I
know of. The first one is at Porky's on June
20 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., with a silent auc-
tion, 50/50 raffle and door prizes. The second
one is at Dockside June 29 starting at noon
with a pig roast. Please come out and support
this legend in our community.

Bird lovers flock to the rescue again


EDITOR:
On a recent evening, a friend and I did
something that I stupidly do not do often
enough we went for a quiet walk along the
Boca Chica beach just before sunset.
Walking back along the part beyond the
concrete barriers, where the cars cannot access
and most people do not go, we came across a
large beautiful bird that appeared to be in dis-
tress sitting by the high tide line. We did not
recognize the species and did not have the
knowledge to help it. It was just before dark.
We phoned a friend to try to get phone
numbers for local bird rescue operations. We
got one and called Florida Keys Wildlife
Rescue based on Big Pine, where we received
an answering machine and left a message. I
thought they would probably not get the mes-
sage until the next morning when, hopefully, it
would not be too late to help the bird.
Hurrying back to my place, we then phoned
around to try to find another rescue operation
that might be able to help ASAP. While doing
so, Maya Totman from Florida Keys Wildlife
Rescue called me back and apologized for not
being available when we called but that they
were out rescuing some chicks. She explained
they will go out 24-7 any week of the year.
Maya and three other volunteers went
straight out to the Boca Chica beach and called
me again, on site, for specific directions.
While homing in, Maya saw the bird and, car-
ingly, told me it was a juvenile gannet. She
suggested I call her the next day for a report.
Apparently the northern gannet was
extremely emaciated and probably would not
have lasted until morning. Maya said they had
it in intensive care, were nurturing it with
pediolite and that it was in a "category 3" dire
state (the worst).
I wondered what would happen if the bird
survived, as I understood that it is now after


the gannet migratory time. Apparently Florida
Keys Wildlife Rescue always finds a way to
transport their rescues back to the flock. For
example, recently they flew a hawk up to
South Carolina.
We're waiting and hoping for the best.
Many thanks to Maya and all of the volunteers
at Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue for being who
they are and doing what they do.
Don't you just love the fact that there are
still some people in our lives who, without any
self-serving agenda, do wonderful things that
we either don't or cannot do?
I am writing this to thank them and, hope-
fully, let others be aware of their services,
maybe helping a little to keep them going with
their important services. Go to www.florida
keyswildliferescue.org to look at the opera-
tion and locally rescued birds.

Kenny Masters of Marathon, who

Keys now paying for living high on the hog


EDITOR:
I just wanted to make a comment
on all the talk about Monroe County's
tax base dropping by $1.2 billion.
That sounds so bad.
Of course, the first thing they will
threaten is school budgets, communi-
ty programs and libraries. Once you
hear that, you say, "Well, if they have
to up the millage rate to make up the
difference, it would be OK." How is
that tax relief? The governor cut us a
break with the homestead exemption
and tax portability. His intention was
for local governments to cut back
unnecessary spending, not find anoth-
er way to get the money out of us.
They cry about the real estate mar-
ket being slow, causing the tax values
to go down, and losing money. The


thing they forget so quickly is that
just a few years ago, they had more
money than they knew what to do
with. House values were triple what
they were just three years earlier and
they didn't hesitate to adjust our taxes
up. But, hey, we needed that stadium,
also known as the Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District building in
Marathon and the overpriced fire
house (I know where I am going for
the next hurricane).
How about making county
employees (including deputies) drive
their own cars? I am sure they would
rather do that than cut their own
hours. I could go on, but I am limited
on space.

U.S. spending way out of kilter


EDITOR:
Fun facts for the day:
Based on the budget of the United
States government, if you paid
$10,000 in taxes last year, here's how
your money was spent: $4,200 on the
military; $2,200 on health; $1,000 to
pay interest on our debt; $900 for
anti-poverty programs; $400 for edu-
cation and social services; $400 on
government and law enforcement;
$300 for housing and community
development; $300 on the environ-
ment, energy and science; $200 to
agriculture, commerce and transporta-
tion; and, finally $100 on internation-
al relations.
Last year, the United States spent
$623 billion on the military. The -
entire rest of the world spent $500 bil-
lion. China spent $64 billion, Russia
$57 billion and so on. The U.S. mili-
tary spent roughly 10 times more than
China, 10 times more than Russia and
$123 billion more than all the mili-
taries of the world put together.


That is roughly $2,077 for every
American man, woman and child,
much of which is spent on advanced
weapons systems designed to fight a
technologically sophisticated enemy
that no longer exists.
Since the beginning of the Iraq war,
we have witnessed the greatest transfer
of wealth in our nation's history, from
the American taxpayer to the military
industrial complex (defense contrac-
tors), just what President Eisenhower
warned us against.
Meanwhile, as we wrestle with
budget cuts, downsizing, layoffs and
the rising the cost of everything, Mr.
Bush is asking to increase military
spending this year by several billion
while he continues to seek tax breaks
for the very rich. The top 1 percent of
Americans currently have more
wealth than the entire bottom 50 per-
cent.
Have a nice day.

Gird for budget battle,

worst is yet to come


The chickens come home to roost is
an old saying, and it truly applies to
Monroe County's budget woes, which
we now learn are worse than anyone
thought.
New County Administrator Roman
Gastesi wasn't here last year when the
alarm bells were ringing and some, like
veteran County Clerk Danny Kolhage,
warned loudly that spending had to be
cut or we'd be in the red.
Kolhage looked at spending levels in
the first months of the 2007-08 budget
and saw that reserves were being tapped
to balance the books. That's dangerous
and fiscally irresponsible. He warned of
a $10 million shortfall.
Then-County Administrator I
Tom Willi tried to downplay
Kolhage's doomsday sce-
nario, saying reserves had
always been rolled over and
not to worry.
But when things got worse
and the Legislature mandated
cutbacks in all local govern-
ment spending, the embattled
Willi shifted gears and pro-
posed a major downsizing of \
county staff, new and higher -
fees for county services, and Wayne
an increase in the county's Keynote
gas tax.
Most of those fixes proved
to be too little, too late or were'polit-
ically unpalatable.
A fire fee, and one-penny increase in
the gas tax which would have raised
an estimated $2.5 million a year did-
n't even make it to the County
Commission agenda until this past
April, long after Willi was bye-bye.
Willi was forced out in December
when Commissioner Dixie Spehar
decided she'd had enough and joined
with Willi critics commissioners Sylvia
Murphy and George Neugent.
Firing him without cause triggered
$282,000 in severance.
The county reduced its tax collections
this year by only $5 million, making
this year's $12.5 million in needed
reductions truly scary.
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro and I talked
on Friday as he sat in the administra-
tor's office and began scoping out the
size of the hole we face.
His take: "Our expenses have gone up
over the years, but this county doesn't
know how to make money. We give too
much away. We have to increase rev-
enue."
And he made it clear.he wasn't talk-
ing about taxes. "Building hotels and
airports (to increase tourism), this is the
way the county can make money."


What the County Commission and
county staff must focus on right now is
how to reduce the costs of doing busi-
ness by 15 percent.
That will be difficult without cutting
off entire programs and eliminating pay-
roll expenses, which represent 75 per-
cent of the county's overall operating
cost.
Neugent doesn't pull punches: "This
does not look good; we're in serious
financial trouble."
The Keynoter will be reporting closely
on this year's budget as county staff and
elected commissioners gird for their
first budget workshop, now scheduled
for July 2.
Based on past history here-
abouts, we predict the fire-
works this year will be huge,
I'm not talking about those
on the Fourth of July.

ELECTION / From 1

between a man and woman to
shifting the way taxes finance
schools.
And that's not even counting
if the County Commission or
municipalities decide to put
local referendums on the ballot.
One is already pretty much a
go: Key Westers likely will be
asked whether the city should
take ownership of Higgs Beach
- and the maintenance and law
enforcement costs that go with
it from Monroe County.
"Around Aug. 26, we'll
know what the cities want on
their November ballot," Sawyer
says.
Meanwhile, dozens of candi-
dates have already filed prelim-
inary paperwork to qualify to
run, but the real decision for
them am I in or out? -
comes this. week. Official can-
didate qualifying runs from
noon Monday to noon Friday,
when the ballot will be locked.
"Biggest .,ballot ever,"
Sawyer says.
That means a November bal-
lot that likely will be six pages
- three sheets printed on both
sides. Sawyer says he can't
recall a bigger ballot, and he's
been overseeing Keys elections
since 1988.
Around 8,000 Keys voters
have asked for absentee ballots
for the Aug. 26 primary so they
don't need to head to the polls
on Election Day. Candidates
work those voters hard, and
those ballots often decide elec-
tions in Monroe.
There's also early voting,
with polling sites open through-
out the county well before
Election Day. That means 30
percent or more of all votes
might be cast before the polls
open on Election Day.
Some are confused about
when to vote in what races.
For example, Marathon vot-
ers used to vote in March. But
the City Council changed the
charter so now, for the first
time, they vote for their City
Council in the November gen-
eral election.
But the School Board candi-
dates, who run countywide and
nonpartisan, face off during the
August primary. It goes to
November only if there are

For voters

As of Thursday. Monroe
Country had 46,545 registered
voters. Of those, 17,701 are
Republicans. 16.790 are
Democrats, 10,003 have no
parry affiliation and 1960 are
members of rmnor parties.
The deadline to register
to .ote in Monroe Count- is
July 28 for the Aug. 26 pri-
mary and Oct. 6 for the Nov.
4 general election.
Earls \oting for the
primary starts Aug 11 and
runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. every day but Sunday at
the Super lsor of Elections
Offices in Ke\ West, .
Marathon and Plantation
Key, and the Big Pine KeN
and KeN Largo libranes.
About 8.000 absentee
ballots have been requested
for the primary. Since it
takes timune to certif, the bal-
lots and get them printed.
they'll be mailed to voters
about two % eeks after candi-
date qualify ing ends June 20.

three or more candidates in a
race and a runoff is needed if
none get more than 50 percent
of the vote. Same thing with the
Key Largo Fire and Emergency
Medical Services District
board.
And in the primary, if there
are, say, two candidates running
Republican in a race but none
from another party or nonaffili-
ated, all registered voters get to
vote since the race would be
decided in that election. That's
called a universal primary.
Then there's the issue of
Florida's elections being sus-
pect from the get-go stemming
from the 2000 presidential elec-
tion. In that race, ballot may-
hem ensued, so the state has
adopted a uniform voting
method of sorts: All 67 counties
must now have paper ballots,
not only electronic. Paper bal-
lots leave a physical trail.
"It's amazing the secretary
of state is making an announce-
ment we are officially a paper-
ballot state," Sawyer says.
"Monroe County has been a
paper-ballot county for the past
15 years."

Federal panel kills Atlantic circle-hook rule


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Federal fishery managers this
week blocked a mandatory circle-
hook rule and agreed to delay
action on a closed season for
grouper in Atlantic Ocean waters.
"The circle-hook rule is defi-
nitely killed," said Tony larocci, a
Marathon commercial fisherman
who serves on the federal South
Atlantic Fishery Management
Council, which met Monday
through Thursday in Orlando.
Keys commercial fishermen
Richard Stiglitz and Bruce Irwin,
along with Islamorada sportfish-
ing Capt. Billy Kelly, offered tes-
timony that played a large role in
swaying South Atlantic board
members to drop a requirement
that would have mandated use of
circle hooks to catch snapper and
grouper on natural bait.
"They made excellent hands-


on demonstrations with a lot of
evidence," Iarocci said. "This
kind of presentation from sport-
fishermen and commercial fisher-
men has a lot of credibility with
the council."
Kelly said testimony from
Mote Marine Lab researcher
Karen Burns also showed the
council that "the efficiency of cir-
cle hooks is species-specific.
They work great on some species,
like billfish, but not so great on
others."
The action applies only to
waters on the Atlantic side of the
Keys.
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council now
requires circle hooks for grouper
and snapper in its waters. That
rule remains in effect.
"Everybody thought that since
the Gulf [Council] did it, the cir-
cle-hook rule was a done deal in


the South Atlantic," larocci said.
"But that was before anybody
had a chance to hear the testimo-
ny."
Fishermen presented informal
comparison studies suggesting
that circle hooks are less effective
in catching snapper, and are as
likely as conventional J-hooks to
damage a snapper's internal
organs in a gut hook.
Action on a proposed four-
month closed season on most
species of grouper, recommended
to run January through April, was
postponed until the council's
September meeting.
The closure seeks to protect
the stock of gag grouper, general-
ly acknowledged as overfished,
during spawning season.
But to prevent gag grouper
from being mistaken for similar
grouper species, council staff
urged the season be closed on
black grouper, red grouper and
.other grouper species that are a


mainstay of Florida Keys fishing.
* Fishermen protested that
while gag grouper seldom are
caught Keys waters, a four-month
grouper closure during the peak
tourism season would devastate
the local economy.
Irwin said the Keys commer-
cial-fishing industry urged the
council to consider more local-
ized rules with its Florida-to-
North Carolina jurisdiction.
"We want our own fishery and
rules that make sense in the
Keys," Irwin said. "The Keys is
such a unique fishery compared
to other states.
"We only catch about 1 per-
cent of the gag grouper so we're
not really having an effect out
they were looking at closing our
fishery down,'too."
larocci said he will urge the
council to consider "the impor-
tance of regionalization."
"We've been doing business
the same way for a lot time," -he


said. "It's time to start looking for
different tools."
A Thursday public-comment
session on the snapper-grouper
rules drew dozens of speakers.
Kelly said the charter-fishing
industry won a key ruling from
the council to acknowledge the
catch from charterboats and head-
boats as a "definitive user group."
Previously, charter-fishing
catches were considered as part
of the recreational sector.
"Fishing management is mov-
ing toward allocation quotas for
various user groups, so this is
major precedent for us," Kelly
said. "We'll have our own alloca-
tions that keep us fishing."
Catch records kept by charter
crews are among the most reli-
able sources of fishery informa-
tion, council staff told Kelly.
However, the South Atlantic
Council voted to prohibit charter-
boat crews from selling their
catch.

Firefighters

Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett released a full
report Tuesday outlining
short-term and long-term rec-
ommendations for the city's
fire department in the wake of
a June 4 fire that destroyed the
home of entertainer Robert
"Rocketman" Hudson and his
family.
Many residents witnessing
the fire said it took too long
for Marathon Fire Rescue to
get water on it. The fire
department did attack the
flames with 1,750 gallons of
water upon arrival, but went
between- 12 and 15 minutes
without another source when
it ran out, the department says.

available water sources in all
neighborhoods of Marathon,"
but Fire Chief Dale Beaver
said the problem lies more
with turnover.
In the June 4 fire, Engine
17 out of Conch Key intended
to run a 5-inch supply line
from the neighborhood's only
fire hydrant, at Sombrero
Beach Road and Avenida
Primaceria, to the blaze. But
the truck carries only 1,000
feet of line, which left it more
than 1,000 feet short of
Hudson's Calle Ensenada
home.
Volunteer Randy Mearns
then informed firefighters of a
canal behind a house across
the street, but 30 feet of man-
groves had to be cut through
to reach the water.
"One of our problems is we
train these guys and they
leave. You don't learn it
overnight and when you do get
them trained, they leave you
for more pay and less driv-
ing," Beaver said. "With fire
protection, you eventually
have to bite the bullet. If you


want to provide protection,
you have to provide people."
Other recommendations
included installing 10 more
fire hydrants throughout the
city, reorganizing the city's
volunteer firefighters- and
recruiting new ones and estab-
lishing "a Marathon or Middle
Keys Fire Taxing District" to
encourage cooperation and
sharing of fire personnel and
equipment.
The fire at Hudson's home
reportedly began when his
daughter lit four tiki torches in
the backyard to scatter a
swarm of gnats gathering by
the pool. One of the citronella
cylinders apparently cracked,
causing the torch rod to ignite
and catch the composite deck
material on fire. It quickly
spread to the attic, above a
heavy tile ceiling.
"With heavy tile, all you're
doing is endangering people's
lives uselessly. It's not worth
the risk," Fire Chief Dale
Beaver said, noting the ceiling
could have collapsed any
moment on firefighters inside
the home.


CUTTING EDGE: Key West city employees go through
chainsaw training last week, learning proper cuffing and
safety procedures just in time for hurricane season. Ten
employees from several departments attended and
will now conduct mini training sessions for other city
employees. Experts with Arborscape Tree Care
Professionals taught the class.

More hydrants coming to neighborhoods


Plan in place
before June 4
fire gutted home
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council on
Tuesday approved a resolution to
partner with the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority to install 10
fire hydrants throughout the city.
The council was quick to point
out the move wasn't a "knee-jerk
reaction" to the June 4 fire that
destroyed the home of popular
Marathon entertainer Robert
"Rocketman" Hudson and his fam-
ily. Fire Chief Dale Beaver said
plans have been in the works for
two years to install the hydrants.
"One of my frustrations with
prior city managers is we haven't
gotten this done. We knew back
then we were woefully inade-
quate as far as the installation


around town and we put money
in the budget year after year arid
we haven't spent that money,"
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said. The
city has, $100,000 budgeted this
year to install hydrants.
"The way I look at it is it's
going to be a tool. We do need
some hydrants in some specific
places and we'll tell the Aqueduct
where to put them," Councilman
Mike Cinque said.
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
said the Aqueduct Authority.
would install as many hydrants as
the city orders.
"It will be up to the city to tell
the FKAA how many and where.
They won't do anything until you
give them those numbers,"
Morales said.
Councilman Don Vasil
opposed the plan, saying it's not
cost-effective to spend money on
hydrants that may be ineffective
in the event of a serious fire.

City to dip into its housing fund


Money would
help closing,
move-in costs
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


With some state affordable
housing funding pools slashed
entirely, Key West city offi-
cials plan to dip into the city's
affordable housing trust fund
to help Keys families cover
- closing costs and move into
new homes.
There's about $600,000 sit-,
ting in the fund. The pot had
about $300,000 after the city


settled a code enforcement
case in April 2007 with the
owners of the Galleon Resorts
and Marina timeshare.
The pot doubled in size
when property owner Rich
Jones made a $300,000 contri-
bution to win approval of his
project from the City
Commission. The commis-
sioners approved Jones' plan
to build 20 market-rate town-
houses at 119-135 Simonton
St. in May.
Now housing officials want
to start using that dough.
"This is something that
over a year ago, we brought


before the city as a way they
could incentivize affordable
housing," Community
Housing Committee Chairman
Omar Garcia said. "There are
four or five families who need
assistance to move into afford-
able units, but the [State
Housing Initiatives Partner-
ship] money is running out."
Factoring in other cuts in
state funding outside of the
SHIP grants, holding onto
Keys families will be more
challenging, Garcia says.
Hardworking families simply
can't pay closing costs without
a little help.
"That's the only thing keep-
ing these families out of these
units," Garcia said.
"I think the idea certainly
fits the mission and purpose of
that funding for which it was
created," said Bob Calhoun,
executive director of Habitat




kevsmilesxom


for Humanity of the Lower
Keys and Key West.
The state cut more than $70
million for affordable housing
from the 2008-09 budget,
"eliminating the Community
Workforce Housing
Innovation Pilot Program. Key
West received a $5 million
grant from that program in
May to rebuild the dilapidated
Roosevelt Sands housing com-
plex.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson originally pitched
the idea of pulling money out
of the trust fund, at the start of
the year. With the Community
Housing Committee behind
the initiative, a resolution is
being drafted for the City
Commission meeting on July
1.
McPherson s-aid the Key
West Housing Authority
would manage the money and
potential homeowners would
be eligible as long as they
make no more than 150 per-
cent of the area median
income. For a family of four,
the AMI in Monroe County is
$105,408 a year.
"The mayor is trying to ini-


tiate a homebuyers assistance
plan," Housing Authority
Director Manuel Castillo said.
"We do it everyday with the

but those funds are limited."

chases, which are down.

Steam Plant gets 2nd life


38 affordable
units now full
with workers
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com


The Key West Steam Plant in
the 1950s used to billow soot
across the island, coating build-
ings as far away as Simonton
Street.
Now that property, where
Trumbo Road and Grinnell and
Caroline streets intersect, is con-
sidered home for Key Westers of
all incomes.
New homeowners have
closed on all 38 apartments in
the workforce housing complex,
called Railway Condominiums.
Heather Braham, a 24-year-
old Realtor with Seaport
Realtors in nearby Conch
Harbor, says she'll live in her
new Railway condo "indefinite-
ly."
She's lived in Key West for a
year and a half after moving
from Fort Myers. She came to
the island for Fantasy Fest and
decided she couldn't leave.
Condo requirements state that
a tenant must live and work in
Monroe County for a year to
apply for the housing.
"It's great," Braham said.
"It's my own place. Before I was
living with two roommates, so
it's nice to have my own little
place."
Braham, who walks to work,
pays $1,400 a month for her
mortgage. That's including prop-


erty taxes and condo association
fees.
The steam plant, which oper-
ated from 1952 to 1978, has an
art deco look. The developer, Ed
Swift, was asked by the city of
Key West to recreate that look in
the three new buildings he con-
structed on the site. One of the
new four-story buildings will.
have 19 three-bedroom luxury
apartments, which go for $3 mil-
lion each. The other two build-
ings, called the Railway
Condominiums, were designated
as workforce housing.
Debbie Swift, the project
manager, said the Railway con-
dos range in price from
$170,000 to $250,000, based on
the location of the units and the
tenant's income. They come
with a fixed appreciation of 2.5
percent a year.
"So, it's in your best interest
to keep it for at least 10 years,"
said Lynn Holler, who makes
reservations for Dangers
Charters, a company that sells
kayaking, snorkeling and sailing
trips.
Holler moved into her 575-
square-foot, one-bedroom apart-
ment on May 1, from an apart-
ment on Virginia and Margaret
streets. She's now paying less
for her mortgage than she did for
her rent.
Trice Denny, a public affairs
officer for Naval Air Station Key
West, moved into her place last
weekend. With all expenses
included insurance, taxes and
condo fee she pays about


$2,100 a month, she said.
She enjoys the view from her
new balcony, at the corner of
Grinnell and Caroline Street. "I
enjoy looking at the sunset, she
said. "I look out over the ferry
terminal and Christmas Tree
Island straight down Caroline
Street. I love it because it's
mine."

Another street goes one-way


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com.


One of the last phases of a
traffic project to convert two-way
streets to one-ways in Old Town
Key West will take effect
Monday morning, when Petronia
Street will turn one-way going
west from Elizabeth to Simonton
streets.
"We will have the police on
scene to ensure safety of our res-
idents during our transition," said
Bill Rieck, superintendent of the
Public Works Department. "I feel
this is going to ease the conges-
tion in that area."
The one-way signs are already


in place, but bags over the signs
have yet to be removed.
"It's already practically a one-
way street due to the size of the
street," City Engineer Roland
Flowers said. "No one goes that
other direction."
Interim Police Chief Donie
Lee says police will take it easy
on traffic violators traveling
down the narrow road in the
wrong direction for a brief grace
period before issuing citations.
Flowers said the recent
changes were part of a traffic plan
that took effect in January.
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district includes
the new one-ways, took a barrage
of angry phone calls from neigh-
borhood motorists after eight
two-way streets in their Bahama
Village community were convert-
ed to one-ways Jan. 2.
Lopez said he was hearing
from many residents who weren't
willing to give the new traffic
patterns a chance.
Another portion of Petronia
Street, from Thomas to Fort
Street, has yet to be officially
converted to one-way. It will
make the transition by Aug. 31,
according to Flowers.
City commissioners announced
at their May 24 meeting that gates
to the Truman Waterfront would
open to traffic through Petronia
and Geraldine Streets; vehicles


will enter Petronia and exit
Geraldine.
The Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust is plan-
ning a development project on
6.6 acres on that property that
will essentially extend Bahama
Village to include open-air cafes,
gardens and affordable housing.
Geraldine Street is lined with
affordable housing and a Keys
Energy Services substation is
nearby on Angela Street.
"Historically, Petronia has
been the street that neighborhood
planners have envision for the
project," Land Trust Deputy
Director Wheeler Winstead said.
"Geraldine Street is the best of
the worst options. We wouldn't
choose- that outside of the fact
that the city needs to get this road
developed in a short period of
time. There is not a better short
term option."
The current entrance to the
Truman Waterfront is through
Southard Street. Legal battles
between the nearby Truman
Annex Master Property Owners
Association and the city over
who owns the rights to the street
prompted a settlement that could
lead to a gate at that community's
entrance.
The Truman Waterfront is
where beachgoers, as well as his-
tory and marine-life buffs, filter
through to get to Fort Zachary
Taylor State Park and theFlorida
Keys Eco-Discovery Center.

7 cleared of


ethics breaches


Agency finds
no validity
in three cases
Keynoter Staff


Seven residents of the Keys
have been cleared of violating
state ethics or election laws in
separate rulings coming down
from two state agencies.
Wednesday, the state
Commission on Ethics said in a
prepared statement it found no
"legal sufficiency" to sustain
complaints made in March
against Sheriff Rick Roth,
Sheriff's Office Administration
Bureau Director Mike Rice and
Florida Keys Community
College board member Carey
Goodman in a case brought by
sheriff candidate Sandra
Downs. '
The Commission on Ethics
also ruled that a complaint
Stock Island resident Paul
Caruso filed against County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar the
same month lacks legal suffi-
ciency.
In the first case, Downs
based her case of ethics breach-
es on Roth appointing David
Rice, father of Mike, to the
Sheriff's Office's Shared Asset
Forfeiture Fund Board, which
allocates $125,000 annually for
juvenile mental-health and anti-
crime programs.
Downs alleged Mike Rice
steers no-bid contracts to the
Guidance Clinic of the Middle
Keys, which David Rice found-

Douglass is critical

The daughter of Keith
Douglass, a former Monroe
County commissioner and the
current executive director of
Crane Point Hammock in
Marathon, remains in critical
condition at Ryder Trauma
Center in Miami with severe
injuries she received in a
Wednesday auto crash.
Gwen Douglass, 22, report-
edly fractured 11 ribs, a cheek-

still has an interest.
She had also filed a com-
plaint against David Rice but
the Commission on Ethics has
no jurisdiction over private citi-
zens. It was unclear from the
complaint what Downs alleged
against Goodman.
In the'Spehar case, Caruso
alleged Spehar violated ethics
laws because she voted in favor
of an ordinance that would have
allowed redevelopment of the
Stock Island waterfront. Caruso
maintained Spehar had a con-
flict of interest because she lives
on a houseboat there and could
be influenced by developers.

IT'S MY TIME


TO CONTRIBUTE

An Open Letter to the Citizens

of Monroe County and

Sheriff's Department Personnel
My Dear Friends and Fellow Voters:

My having run for Sheriff, particularly, the last two times against a
very popular Rick Roth, educated me over a period of the last eight to ten
years about the Sheriff's Office in general... especially its corrections
institution, its road deployment, its budget, and the other facets that go
into the making of a functional department.

It is important to consider that I have been in charge of an entire
department; have worked my way up from patrolman; been recognized
nationally as a Knight of Justice; and received the J. Edgar Hoover Award.
I have contributed a great deal to law enforcement through service,
teaching and leadership over my thirty years as a resident of
Monroe County.

Many candidates speak about integrity and ethics. I would like you
to consider that in professing my character that I submit my years of law
enforcement. I have been in contact with literally thousands of the public
and have also been in close personal contact with other law enforcement
officers, in the hundreds. I have taught many young people who went on
to become corrections officers and basic law enforcement graduates from
the Academy. I have been a lawyer for forty six years and represented
thousands of clients. In all of my police service, I have only been
promoted, and never demoted and have never had a single complaint
against me of any kind.

I entitled this letter "It is My Time" not because I deserve anything
for running numerous times, except for maybe the fact that I have a
stick-to-itiveness. The real reason I run is because I genuinely and
passionately feel that I can contribute to the law enforcement needs of our
County, which needs someone who has been through the ranks as well as
understands the business of the community and can run the business of the
Sheriff's department in a fiscally responsible manner, and that someone
is me.

Gillis looks
at Marathon
law as a model
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

A Marathon ordinance allow-
ing the transfer of building rights
among properties is being consid-
ered as a model to preserve
affordable housing in Islamorada.
However, that ordinance is
having slow results in Marathon
since its implementation last year,
according to the city's planning
director.
Deb Gillis, chairwoman of


Islamorada's Workforce/Afford-
able Housing Citizens Advisory
Committee, is researching the
transfer of building rights, known
as TBRs, which she said might be
a way to deed-restrict current
affordable units while freeing up
market-rate building permits.
"I heard about it through the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust and I thought, now here's
an idea," said Gillis, who also sits
on the Land Trust board. "We
need to try and figure something
out to protect what little [afford-
able housing] we have. It looks
like this could possibly work, but
we're still in the early stages."
The TBR ordinance allows
property owners to transfer resi-
dential and transient building
rights, which exist with all cur-
rent homes and hotel rooms, to
other sites if density and environ-
mental rules allow it. The rights
can also be held onto for future
use or be sold.
The Marathon City Council
envisioned that owners of histori-
cally affordable housing would
be encouraged to apply for
affordable housing building per-


mit allocations, which are more
readily available than market-rate
permits, and apply the allocation
to the unit, thereby keeping it
affordable in perpetuity.
The property owner could
then move the market-rate alloca-
tion that used to apply to that
property to a separate vacant
property or sell the right on the
open market. TBRs have been
listed in Marathon for $65,000.
If the property owner doesn't
place an affordable. unit on the
original site, he or she would
have to pay $60,000 to a city fund
for affordable housing land
acquisition or construction.
Marathon Planning Director
. George Garrett said few contribu-
tions have been made so far.
"Because of the structure of
the ordinance, it's going to be
limited to somebody who can
afford to essentially provide
affordable housing," Garrett said.
"We're in the process of a few
transfers now, but nothing major.
That's not a reflection of the sys-
tem, it's a reflection of the mar-
ket."
Islamorada already has an
affordable housing fund created
through its inclusionary zoning

ordinance, which requires a fee
be paid to expand floor area or
build new construction.
Islamorada Planning Director
Ed Koconis said the fees range
from a little more than $1 per
square foot for residential devel-
opment to $12 per square foot for
government buildings to $37 per
square foot for some commercial
development.
Koconis said 17 projects,
nearly all residential, have con-
tributed $32,000 since the ordi-
nance became law in October.
However, the first $53,000 col-
lected is earmarked to help pay
off construction loans for the
Woods Comer affordable hous-
ing project on Plantation Key.
"We've had a couple of com-
plaints, only a couple," Koconis
said of those faced with the fees
so far. "They're more questions
really than complaints. Here's a
new fee, what is it?"
Koconis said he has read
through parts of the Marathon
TBR ordinance but isn't sure how
well it could apply to Islamorada.
The affordable housing advisory
committee is scheduled to take
the issue up at its next meeting on
June 23.

Pigeon or not, permits OKd


Council grant
relief from
permit system
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The endangered


s






white-


crowned pigeon is an elegant-
island-hopper found in select
pockets of the Caribbean. The
National Audubon Society
estimates about 500,000 exist.
In the U.S., these iridescent
slate grey birds with white
head feathers can only be seen
in the Everglades and the
Keys, where destruction of
habitat is its biggest threat to
survival.
The .Islamorada Village
Council spent a good portion
of its Thursday meeting dis-
cussing the pigeon and then
voted unanimously to grant
relief to a property owner
whose building plans will
involve destruction of the
pigeon's 9.75-acre habitat on
Upper Matecumbe.
"Administrative relief to me
is relief because you've been
waiting too long," councilman
Michael Reckwerdt said during
the final vote. "I have a nag-
ging feeling that in general,
people in America buy a lot to
build a house."
Because the state limits how
many permits can be issued
annually in the Keys, permit
application scores are based on
building and environmental
factors. Permits go to the high-
est-scoring applications.
After four years in the sys-
tem, applicants can ask for
administrative relief to have
the council-grant a permit, buy
the property at fair market
value or determine some other
action. Failure to act could be
considered an illegal taking in
that it denies the property
owner the right to make eco-
nomic use of his land.
Thursday, the council was
fairly quick to grant "persever-
ance points" to Janna and
Joseph Pinder III, who wanted
a permit for a Key Honey Lane
lot at mile marker 88.9 on
Plantation Key, and Brandi
Horton, who sought a permit
for a lot at Indian Mound Trail
and Apache Street in the Indian
Harbor subdivision near mile
marker 89 bayside on


Plantation Key.
The points put 'the appli-
cants near the top of the permit
allocation pool, so they'll like-
ly receive permits in the next
award period.
The discussion was more
heated for a request by
Christopher Hope, who in
2004 applied for building per-
mits on two waterfront proper-
ties on Flamingo Bay
Hammock Road in Bay
Hammock subdivision at mile
marker 83.
According to staff, the lots
have high-quality native ham-
mock, or forest, but are desig-
nated low 'quality because of
zoning and lot size. That and
the presence of a white-
crowned pigeon cost him five
points in the permit system.
The council voted to give
him back five points and put
him near the top of the next
allocation pool, though coun-
cilman Dave Boerner argued to
have Hope develop a specific
management plan to mitigate
the loss of the pigeon habitat.
"This is pristine hammock


and a location of an endan-
gered species, so there's a big
issue here," Boerner said. "I'd
like to defer this and have the
applicant work out a proposal
with staff on how to protect
this species and this ham-
mock."
Planning Director Ed
Koconis said village code
already requires a conservation
easement to protect at least 50
percent of the hammock on the
properties, although staff
would work with the applicant
to either plant new or relocate
food trees, such as poison-
wood, to other areas.
"I looked into the white-
crowned pigeon, and we are in
the northern edge of its range,"
Vice Mayor Don Achenberg
said. "I do question the fact
that we have to cause this man
undo difficulties because there
was a pigeon on his property."

Rates, risk draw crowd


By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Keys officials and some upset
customers turned out Thursday
for a forum on windstorm insur-
ance by Citizens Property
Insurance Corp.
And while many questions
were answered at the Harvey
Government Center session,
some walked away from the
meeting without feeling much
relief.
"Some people were dissatis-
fied with the answers they gave,"
said Cindy Thor, a claims adjus-
tor who dogged the panel with
specific questions about potential
post-hurricane needs. "It seems
they just pacified the people."
One bit of good news came
from Suzanne Murphy, a Citizens
representative, who said the
insurer of last resort would
extend mitigation credits to com-
mercial properties for the first
time.
That could lower rates for
windstorm policies where busi-


nesses invest in hardening their
buildings to reduce damage in
future storms.
Members of Fair Insurance
Rates in Monroe, a grassroots
lobbying group, made up about a
fifth of the crowd. They were
among the dissatisfied who
spoke.
Al Sachs, a retired engineer
active in FIRM, said he couldn't
understand why complex math
models were needed to determine
insurer's exposure.
"These models are malleable,"
he said. "Why not go on claims?
Why not go on what's already
available?"
Other anxious residents pep-
pered the panel, including Florida
Insurance Commissioner Kevin
McCarty, often not waiting for a
microphone passed around by
organizers.
Most focused on Citizens' rate
increases, especially those for
condominium owners, where
rates quadrupled before the 2007


freeze and remain there today.
Murphy and Paul Palumbo,
representing Citizens, explained
they didn't have the power to
adjust the way rates are calculat-
ed. But they said Citizens has
made drastic improvements since
the 2004 and 2005 hurricane sea-
sons.
"We did a very poor job in
2004," said Murphy, discussing
claims response. Since then, she
said, hundreds of insurance
adjusters and agents had been
trained to factor in the specific
needs of Monroe County.
Residents who spoke said they
were unhappy at rates they
described as two or three times
higher than in Miami-Dade,
despite building codes and prac-
tices that kept Keys claims up to
six times lower after the recent
storms.
"Without intervening action,
Monroe County will see -a rate
increase," he said. "It is very
important that citizens have a
point of entry on risk modeling."

Contractors: Tighten control


Qualifications
often loose,
attorney says
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Don't lower standards for con-
struction licenses, local contrac-
tors will advise the Monroe
County Commission Wednesday.
"We're just saying what's
good for one is good for all," said
Rudy Krause, president of the
Florida Keys Contractors
Association.
Frank Greenman, attorney for
the association, asked to address
the commission at its meetings,
which starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday
at the Marathon Government
Center. His presentation is sched-
uled for 2 p.m.
"Interpretations of the qualifi-
cations for [contractor] licensing
have become controversial, par-
ticularly in light of the economic
downturn and competition for a
limited number of construction
jobs," Greenman wrote in backup
material he plans to present.
The contractors' concern
stems largely from an incident
this spring when county Building
Department staff issued two tem-
porary licenses intended to allow
the holders to install boatlifts on
docks or seawalls.
Marine contractors protested,
saying a "boatlift only" license
doesn't exist, and that the two
applicants lack certified experi-
ence and structural expertise
required for a marine-engineer's
license.
The county Contractors
Examining Board later agreed,
ordering the county to rescind the
boatlift licenses.


"We have qualified contrac-
tors who have taken all the tests
and jumped through the hoops,"
Krause said this week. "These
guys didn't have the [supervised
work] experience they needed.
Why change things around?"
Greenman wrote, "There is a
great deal of persuasive pressure
on both the building department
and the [Examining Board] for a
relaxation of the requirements for
qualifications for permit
issuances."

Coroner contract
Monroe County Medical
Examiner Michael Hunter, sched-
uled to leave soon for a new post
in the North Florida's Bay
County, has agreed to remain in
control of the local Medical
Examiner's Office on an interim
basis.
Under terms of a proposed
contract going before the County
Commission Wednesday, Hunter
will oversee a .$43,336 monthly
budget paid by the county to pro-
vide pathology and administra-
tive services.
The budget includes the
department's two full-time
staffers and a part-time employee
and some overhead.
Hunter said qualified patholo-
gists from Miami-Dade County
will perform autopsies as needed
in the Keys.
"I'm trying to do everything I
can to make sure things continue
running smoothly until the coun-
ty hires a full-time medical exam-
iner," Hunter said. "I'm keeping
my fingers cross that happens
very soon."
Hunter has been the local
medical examiner since 2002.

rmccarthy@keynoter.com

More than a year's worth of
planning by the Marathon
Beautification Advisory Board
was rewarded Tuesday when
the City Council unanimously
approved the first phase of its
U.S. 1 median project.
"We were happy to get the
support. I think [the council
sees] the value in beautifying
U.S. 1 so people realize
Marathon is as beautiful as
any other place," board
Chairman Peter Chapman
said.
"It's been a year and a half.
As a committee, we're proud
because we looked at many of
the grand plans done in the
past and never got anything
done," board member Franco
D'Ascanio said. "If we had.it
our way, there could be a
dozen phases, but that might
be wishful thinking."
The initial $50,000 com-
mitment from the city will be
used to plant trees in the medi-
an for the entire length of
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport. The board will ask
residents and businesses to
match the city's $50,000 to
fund the second phase of the
project.
"We're looking for some

Sigsbee parents
opt for charter

With the scheduled permanent
closing of Sigsbee Elementary
School due to a dwindling stu-
dent population, 64 percent of the
school's parents turned out this
week to vote on the future of the
school as a charter school, and 94
percent of them favor converting
Sigsbee into a charter school,
according to the Monroe County
School District.
A group representing the dif-
ferent military commands at


serious community support,"
Chapman said. "I see it as an
investment in the community
to strengthen the economy.
We're in a situation where a
lot of people have left town
and ... if we had the ability to
attract more tourists, that
would help everybody."
"They put a lot of time and
effort in and it's time the city
steps up and spends some
money to beautify our city,"
Councilman Mike Cinque
said.
The Florida Department of
Transportation, which main-
tains the U.S. 1 corridor, will
continue to cut the median
grass after the trees go in. It
will be the city's responsibili-
ty to care for the trees, but
D'Ascanio said Tuesday they
should be established within
six months and require little
maintenance.
"We chose plants that were
drought-tolerant, low mainte-
nance and salt-tolerant,"
D'Ascanio said, also pointing
out DOT requirements such as
maximum trunk size and
height had to be met. The res-
olution states $35,330 will be
budgeted next year for start-
up costs and another $8,240
will be budgeted annually for
future maintenance.
Among the plants being
used for the project: Sable
palms, date palms, hurricane
palms, sunshine palms and
thatch palms.


Naval Air Station Key West,
where the school is located, now
will have the task of exploring
which type of charter would best
meet community needs. If a con-
version charter is selected, it
must be approved by the teachers
some time after the start of the
coming school year.
Charters are public schools
run with tax dollars but operate
outside much of the regulation of
the bureaucracy. They are open to
all students but are especially
popular among struggling stu-
dents looking for an alternative to
their neighborhood school.

Island getting reappraised


Council OKs
more study
of Boot Key
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
+ Approved a motion to seek
proposals for a second appraisal
of Boot Key.
An appraisal done by
Waronker & Rosen Inc. released
in June valued the island at $3.4
million with bridge access and
$1.47 without. Council members
said they feel the island's three
landowners would likely have
one done and the city should do
another to support its own.
The bridge to the island is idi
disrepair and has been closed
since December to traffic of any
kind, even pedestrian. Figures as
high as $10- million have been
floated to complete repairs,
which the city doesn't want pay.
"I do believe we're going to
seriously pursue this property,"
Councilman Mike Cinque said
about buying the island outright
rather than repairing the dated
bridge leading to it. "We're
going to have to reaffirm our
position."
Councilman Don Vasil said
the city should consider having
the Waronker & Rosen appraisal
confirmed by another firm to
save costs. Deputy City
Manager C.J. Geotis said the
report cost roughly $25,000 to
prepare.
"Rather than going through a
whole other appraisal, why not
pay someone to look at what
we've already got and say yay or
nay to it," Vasil said.
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.
+ Approved an ordinance
allowing City Manager Clyde
Burnett to grant limited waivers
of building permit fees for non-
profit organizations in the city.
Nonprofit groups with a
501(c)3 designation through the


Internal Revenue Service can
apply for waivers provided any
one waiver does not exceed
$150. Burnett will report to
council each month on waivers
he grants.
+ Approved an ordinance
requiring property owners to
maintain mangroves and prevent
them from blocking navigable
waterways. The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection requires permits to
trim and remove mangroves; the
work must be supervised by a
certified DEP employee or regis-
tered landscape architect.
Voted down a resolution to
amend the city's purchasing pol-
icy, which requires council
approval for purchases of
$10,000 to $25,000.
The amendment called for
Burnett to be able to approve
purchases and change orders to
existing contracts up to $25,000,
as opposed to the current
$10,000 limit. It also would have
allowed for a monthly report of
all renewals, change orders and
extensions he approves.
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest moved to pass the
motion but it wasn't seconded.
"I don't think we should be
micromanaging to this level. I
just think we have a responsible
staff and we will be able to mon-
itor it," she said.

"The change has not hand-
cuffed us to any large degree that
I've seen. Staff doesn't like it,
obviously, because they are
somewhat restricted by it," Vice
Mayor Chris Bull said. "In the
last 18 months, we've been
tweaking the policies at every
whim. Let things go and settle."

Cops investigating resort rape report


Holiday Isle
employee is
the main focus
By DAVID GOODHUE
and DAVID BALL
dball @keysreporter.com

Authorities are investigating
allegations that a Holiday Isle
Resort employee raped a model
working for a beer company
during the Hospitality Expo at
the resort in May.
The Monroe County State
Attorney's Office is considering
whether to charge the 46-year-
old employee, who police
haven't named, with felony sex-
ual assault, according to
Sheriff's. Office spokeswoman
Deputy Becky Herrin.
A Holiday Isle official
denied it took place.
Here's what the offense
report says a witness and -the
>* a --\\liS-^ iTA ^-. .-^:


alleged victim told police about
the incident, which the women
said happened in the early
morning of May 14:
The alleged victim, 29, was
hired as a model by Corona dis-._
tributors of Miami to work the
beer company's booth at the
resort for the Holiday Expo,
also known as Bartenders Week,
which ran May 11 to May 14.
The alleged victim' and her
supervisor, Jaime Babinski, had
a room in front of the Corona
booth. The night of May 13,
Babinski introduced her to her
alleged attacker at the resort's
Tiki Bar.
After working at the booth
all night early into the next
morning, Babinski and the
alleged victim went to their
room to find it "trashed" with
food spilled on both beds. The
women called the front desk,
but were told they couldn't get


the sheets changed at that time.
-The employee, who lives in
the room next door, told the
women they could come inside
his room and that other people
were still partying there.
Once inside, Babinski told
the employee that the alleged
victim was tired and wanted to
go to sleep. The employee's
apartment had three adjoining
rooms, and he told the woman
she could sleep in his bedroom.
She fell asleep between 5 and 6
a.m.
Babinski told police she was
not ready to sleep and joined the
employee and others on the
porch. She told police the
employee "came on to her real-
ly bad" but she refused his
advances.
He then said he had to go to
the restroom, and Babinski said
she saw him walk to his bed-
room, where the alleged victim
was sleeping.
When he didn't -return after

20 minutes, Babinski said she
went to check on the alleged
victim and within 10 minutes,
the alleged victim ran out,
screaming that the man had
tried to rape her.
The women ran to their room
on the first floor and called 911
just before 9 a.m.
The woman told police that
when she woke up, the employ-
ee was straddling her left leg
with his shorts pulled down.


She said her shorts and under-
wear were pulled down to her
knees.
She said she screamed and
asked him "what the hell he was
doing," and pushed him off her.
She said the man repeatedly
said "I'm sorry."
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said he could neither confirm or
deny his office is investigating.


Housing up for


discussion Tuesday


Consultant
Land Trust
on the agenda
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Key West City Com-
mission will review the contract
for housing consultant Jeffrey
Sharkey of Capitol Alliance
Group Inc. at its meeting
Tuesday.
A one-year contract with
Capitol Alliance expired
Wednesday. Sharkey and his
staff, based in Tallahassee pro-
vide services such as identifying
public and private-sector part-
ners, assessing city housing
needs and briefing city staff on
their findings.
Under the expired contract,
Sharkey was paid $175 hourly
while other Capitol Alliance
staff received $100 an hour. The
same rates would apply for the
two-year contract Mayor
Morgan McPherson is bringing
before the City Commission.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
was the only dissenting vote
when the first contract with the
company was approved last
June. Kolhage will be out of
town during Tuesday's meeting,
which starts at 6 p.m. at Old City
. Hall on Greene Street.
Also on tap for Tuesday:
+ A proposal to transfer
excess fill from the old hawk
missile site off South Roosevelt
Boulevard near Key West
International Airport, and other
flow mitigation projects, to the
Monroe County School District.
The district would use it to build


a soccer field at Poinciana
Elementary School.
"We just started working with
the city on it," schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said. "It's been in the plans
because we built Poinciana
Elementary on top of an old soc-
cer field,"
The fields will go behind the
school, Acevedo said.
The Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust is asking
the city for $455,724 in special
property tax funds to reimburse
architect and developer.fees for
housing that span as far back as
May 2000.
Mayor Morgan McPherson, a
critic of the Land Trust, says the
nonprofit won't have his sup-
port, especially in the city's tight
budget year.
The Land Trust says the
money it's asking for is typical
of developer fees that were pre-
viously pulled from City
Commission agendas "arbitrari-
ly," Land Trust Deputy Director
Wheeler Winstead said.
The organization's bookkeep-
ing has been under recent scruti-
ny by city leaders, but Land
Trust leaders say documents
showing their tenants are out of
compliance with the group's
income requirements are old and
no longer accurate.
The Land Trust manages the
homes of many low-income res-
idents in Key West's culturally
rich Bahama Village. Those
homeowners and renters say liv-
ing on the island would be
impossible without the Land
Trust's affordable rates.

Illegally dark tint
leads to misdemeanors

The owner of a Key West
window-tinting business and
one of his employees face mis-
demeanor charges of violating a
state law regulating how dark
auto tint can be, following a
sting Thursday by the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Xtreme Audio & Cellular
owner Dwayne Liversedge, 27,
and Michael Cisneros, 40, both
of Key West, were issued
notices to appear in court to
answer the misdemeanor
charge. The business is on
North Roosevelt Boulevard.
Deputy Becky Herrin says
Xtreme Audio & Cellular
agreed to install the illegal tint
and tint the front windshield
halfway down for an extra
$100.
She said local law enforce-
ment had started noticing more
vehicles in the Lower Keys
with illegally dark tinting,
which prompted Thursday's
sting. And she said
Liversedge's business and
another which refused to add
the illegal tint were notified
in advance the Sheriff's Office
was paying attention to dark
tint.

IHomeowners sue
state over Poe claims

Nearly 600 lawsuits were
filed in South Florida against
the state agency that's han-
dling claims for the defunct
Poe Financial insurance
companies.
Homeowners.once
insured by Atlantic
Preferred, Florida Preferred
and Southern Familh had to
resolve their claims with the
Florida Insurance Guaranty
Association (FIGA) by June
2 or file a lawsuit against the
agency to keep their cases
alive.
FIGA estimates that the
total number of lawsuits filed
statewide may be close to,
1,000. Most of the South
Florida suits were filed in
Brow ard County Circuit
Court.
Lawyers representing for-
mer Poe policyholders said
FIGA seemed un% killing to
negotiate in the weeks before
the deadline. Most of the
suits they've filed relate to
claims from Hurricane
Wilma in late October 2005.
The Poe companies were
taken over by state regulators
in June 2006 and liquidated
FIGA inherited unresolved
claims.
Although the state used
money from the Poe estate to
pay claims, it wasn't enough.
FIGA imposed a 2 per-
cent assessment last year on
all insurance policies in the
state to raise more money.

Surcharge to be added to insurance bills


Money will
be used to
pay out claims
Associated Press

Florida residents will be pay-
ing higher insurance rates for the
next two years as a result of
action taken Tuesday to shore up
state reserves.
Gov. Charlie Crist and the


Cabinet, acting on recommenda-
tions from officers of the Florida
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund,
authorized the sale of $625 mil-
lion in state bonds.
Revenue to help pay the bond
holders will come from a one per-
cent surcharge on insurance poli-
cies covering homes, boats, cars
and businesses.
Catastrophe Fund Director
Jack Nicholson told the Cabinet


that reserves were only enough to
last up to 20 weeks at the current
rate of claims being paid.
Some of the money from the
latest bond sale will actually be
used to offset claims dating back
to 2005, when Florida was hit by
four major named hurricanes.
Those storms caused damages
estimated in the billions of dollars.
Hurricane Wilma triggered
insurance claims that topped $11

State to use surcharge to shore up state reserves

billion.
At Tuesday's Cabinet meet-
ing, both the governor and
Florida's Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink questioned practices of
the insurance industry and
accused it of "monkey business"
by passing along costs to the
state, the Associated Press report-


ed from Tallahassee.
Sam Miller, a spokesman for
the insurance industry, told AP
that some adjusters "are aggres-
sively advertising, saying 'We
will get you more money.'"
Nicholson, senior officer with
the state's catastrophe fund, said
his office was not aware of any
specific fraudulent claims. He
told the Cabinet that his agency
will conduct audits to make sure


it's not reimbursing insurance
companies for claims they
shouldn't have paid.
The state's catastrophe fund
sells backup coverage to private
insurers, who then tap that "rainy
day" fund when they don't have
sufficient reserves to pay all
claims. -


Florida policy holders are
already paying a surcharge as a
result of 2005 hurricane season
claims, but those surcharges were
originally scheduled to expire in
2012. Tuesday's Cabinet action
will extend those by two years -
to 2014.

Latest mission: Determine why some transplanted corals succeed, other don't


By KEVIN WADLOW

In the dark of the pre-dawn
ocean, Ken Nedimyer saw the
soft glow of coral fluorescence.
When he looks out the win-
dow during meals, a Goliath
grouper often looks back.
"These aren't the things we're
down here to look at, but it's still a
very cool thing," Nedimyer said
from the Aquarius underwater lab-
oratory oceanside off Key Largo.
Lauri MacLaughlin watched
oysters and bivalves spawn,
sending orange and white streams
drifting to the depths.
She thinks about "saving our
babies" hundreds of coral pieces
now being transplanted to a'perma-
nent sub-sea garden as a long-term
research project at the Aquarius.
"Just to have such incredible
access to the water and be part of
the ocean system is an amazing
experience," said MacLaughlin, a
21-year Florida Keys National


James Talacek, a field operations manager at the Aquarius,
keeps watch over the lab's Web cams. He also logs ocean
conditions, electric demand of the lab and life-support
systems, among other things.


Marine Sanctuary staffer known
universally to fellow divers as
Lauri Mac.
MacLaughlin and Nedimyer,
both coral experts and longtime
Keys residents, were welcomed
Wednesday into the select society
of aquanauts those who have
spent at least 24 hours in an
underwater habitat.
They won't surface until
Tuesday, when the six-member
team finishes its weeklong mis-
sion to establish a coral-trans-
plant research garden.
"A lot of coral people like me
dream about doing something big
and significant," Nedimyer said.
"This is it. I've been thinking about
it going to bed and waking up."

Two types are being transplanted


I)Ld ycu knot^


We all need 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:
Avoid the Strongest Rays of the Day
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.
Cover Up
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.
Use Sunscreen Consistently
What matters most in a sunscreen is the degree of protection from
UV rays it provides and that it is applied correctly.
Use Protective Eye Wear for Kids
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).
Doubie-Check Medication~,
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.

ness training for NASA astro-
nauts.
Sleeping aboard the Aquarius
- the only functioning underwa-
ter lab in the world occurs in a
small bunk in a cramped space
shared with team members.
But 12-hour workdays, with
six hours of diving, makes slum-
ber in the unnatural setting easy.
"I slept like a baby,"
Nedimyer said of his first night.
"It's a long day with a lot of
swimming around. It's tiring.
Once it gets dark, things here
slow down and everybody turns
in pretty early."
The aim of the coral-garden
project, headed by scientist
Margaret Miller from the National
Marine Fisheries Service, is to
find out why some transplanted
corals fare better than others.
Miller is part of the surface sup-
port team for the mission.
"Very little is known about the
underlying biological reasons
why one coral may survive and
grow beautifully when transplant-
ed to a reef while another may
sicken or die," Miller noted in a
project summary.
The team will establish 34
quads, each containing nine
pieces of transplanted corals.
For control purposes, only
mountain star and staghom corals
are being used. Varying factors
include depth of the transplants
and whether the original location
of the corals matters.
The transplants come from six
sources, including coral rescued
from seawalls being removed
from Key West and the Upper
Keys. MacLaughlin spearheads


MACLAUGHLIN


the effort.
"Most of
these are res-
cued corals
that would
have otherwise
been lost,"
MacLaughlin
said. "Now
they're being
put to a benefi-


cial use."
Tavernier resident Nedimyer,
a professional collector for aquar-
ists, launched his own coral
transplant project seven years
ago. It has expanded into a non-
profit organization involving
high school and college students
helping with research.
"There are a lot of questions
[about coral transplants] that
need to be answered, and we
hope this project will do that,"
Nedimyer said.
Although both Nedimyer and
MacLaughlin- spend muth of
their working lives underwater,
they both said they're thrilled to
have the unmatched bottom time
made possible by staying aboard
the Aquarius.
"The neatest thing is being so
close to everything," MacLaughlin
said. "You get up in the morning
and just slip into the water because
it's right there."
She said, "I was a little wor-
ried that I'd start to get cold after
a two-hour dive, but now two
hours isn't enough. You always
want to be out in the water."
Using double tanks for the
first time, Nedimyer said he was
amazed to return after a two-hour
dive "and you still have half your
air."
Divers working from the
Aquarius can refill their tanks at


S\ari underwater
,*'gazebo" and
return to work.
Stays
aboard the
." Aquarius are
hazardous
because once
submerged for
NEDIMYER several hours,
divers cannot
surface before undergoing a
lengthy decompression period,
performed by slowly changing
pressure aboard the habitat.
To prepare for their first mis-
sion, Nedimyer and MacLaughlin"
underwent a week of rigorous
training that included skills such
as being able to navigate and per-
form emergency tasks without a
mask.
"Now that I'm out here, I get
it," Nedimyer said. "Everything
makes sense."
Teams aboard the Aquarius
are constantly observed and mon-
itored from the facility's land
base in Key Largo.

.... 33 documentary has

The 1974 documentary
"Tarpon," which was
shot in the Keys, is final-
ly being released commercial-
ly, and is now available on
DVD.
"Tarpon" was considered
the first of the modern fishing
films. It was born from a 1972
visit to the Florida Keys by
filmmaker Christian Odasso
and Guy de la Vald6ne, an avid
angler with a few years of
experience fly fishing for Keys
tarpon. Captivated by the beau-
ty and artistry of catch-and-
release fishing, Odasso paired
with la Vald6ne to co-direct the
film. With a mostly French
crew, they shot scenes in and
around Key West over the
course of seven weeks in 1973.
The film was edited in Paris.
Saved by the filmmaker's
daughter from a dripping barn.
in the Normandy countryside
where it lay untouched for the
past 35 years, the film was
recently restored and digitized
for DVD by Guy de la
Vald6ne. It features early

JJ-..1 BOUIQU


'Tarpon' is a gem and, frankly, a
window on better days. Without a
profound respect for tarpon, this
celebration of their majestic power
and the enchantment of their pursuit
could never have been made.
Tarpon fishing was and is a dream,
and this may be the only time it's
been captured.
Tom McGuane, author


guides and anglers as they fly
fish for tarpon in the backwa-
ters of the Florida Keys. The
film captures the essence of the
sport in dramatic footage and
in the appearance and com-
mentary of authors Thomas
McGuane, Jim Harrison and
Richard Brautigan. Colorful
scenes of Key West from
another era with treasure
hunters, smugglers, hippies and
eccentrics are background
to stunning cinematography
and tarpon fishing at its finest.
Jimmy Buffet composed origi-
nal music for the film.


rn


The film has long been con-
sidered a cult classic among
some fishermen, and has
caught the attention of people
like Tom Brokaw, who recently
called the documentary "a
timeless and beautifully exe-
cuted film about life, sport and
culture."
"It has the most breathtak-
ing footage of the tarpon-stalk-
ing experience that you'll ever
see. Like the fish itself, this is
a work of art," says Carl
Hiaasen, novelist and writer
for The Miami Herald.
The footage focuses on the
magnificence of tarpon, with
interviews with many of the
top guides and conservationists
of the era talking about their
concerns about the future of
the fish they pursue. The film
highlights some of the excesses
of the era, as in a scene where
tourists recoil in fascination
from party boat crew members
clubbing and throwing sharks
and sport fish into barrels. The
filmmakers never found a dis-
tributor for the film, and the
only copies available during
the past 35 years have been
bootleg.
Besides including some of
the only footage of Brautigan,
the cult '60s poet and novelist,
"Tarpon" also features com-
mentary by legendary guides
Woody Sexton, Steve Huff,
and Gil Drake, as well as Page
Brown, a Keys conservationist.
"Tarpon" was made by UYA
Films, based in Palm Beach.
The company is headed by
Odasso, who began his career
as a cinematographer. He's col-
laborated with directors Orson
Welles and Martin Scorsese.
His documentaries range from

We could use a little modernism around here


Naples trip
was a breath
of fresh air

Sam reluctant to say this in
print in this town, but-I yearn
for modernism, particularly
in architecture. Many of my
friends must be having HARC-
attacks now (Historical
Architectural Review
Commission).
The historic Key West struc-
tures, ship carpenter's crafts-
manship and provincial, estab-
lished, predictable, reliable
buildings are fascinating, but...
But what about the creative,
expressive, joyous, elaborative
inventions that happened since
the mid-1800s?
Modernism is actually a pret-
ty general term. It is defined in
various circles as anything con-
temporary (art historian
Christopher Witcombe says
"all art is modern at the time it
is made," citing "modem" refer-
ences back to the 1400s).
Witcombe and art historians
in general now define mod-
ernism as the ideas from the
mid-1800s to now. Some set the
time from 1860 to 1970; some
from 1880s to the present.
Arthistoryguide.com says it is
1880 to 1945, before it devolves
into post-modern.
Generally, it seems, "mod-
ern" describes the 1880s to
1970: everything since is "con-
temporary." Modem includes
Impressionism, Art Nouveau,
Expressionism, Cubism, the
Ashcan School, Futurism, Dada,
DeStijl, Bauhaus, Surrealism,
Constructivism, Art Deco,
Social Realism and miscella-
neous associated styles.
That's a big bucket of styles.
And Key West does not like to
think about them. For us, it is
clapboard, dormers and forest
green shutters. Forget Frank
Lloyd Wright.
What sparked this outburst?
Well, my reading group book for
this month is about Wright, and
then a recent weekend on the
west coast of Florida had me
roaming through exquisite archi-
tecture.
A trip to the Naples Museum
of Art brought a gasp of delight
to my "preservationed" sensibil-
ities.
I approached through a
neighborhood of tall royal palms


and lush
hardwoods.

the 15-gallery museum through
the glass elevator that climbed
adjacent to the red chandelier, I
contemplated the Chihuly
"Persian Ceiling."
The lighted glass box of glass
forms over the corridor had the
same visual effect of a reef dive,
but with fiore density. The
shapes were the spirals and con-
cavities of sea urchins, whelks,
corals and other sea forms in
clear luscious colors.
The collections, besides
Chihuly, were interesting -
walking sticks, miniatures,
Mexican modern works, and a
variety of sculptures on the
grounds.
The changing exhibits were
inspirational Picasso (the
first time I've seen a Picasso
exhibit that wasn't crowded);
Jerome Tupa's extraordinary,


joyously imaginative storybook
images of religious sites in
Europe; a show of pencil and
charcoal drawings that made my
fingers itch for a graphite instru-
ment.
But it was the grandiose
architecture that allowed full
lungfuls of air. Perhaps we need
a "modernism" zone in Key
West there are some New
Town ranch houses that would
serve as a start.

Historic photos
Back to the past, a collection
of historic photographs of Key
West invigorate the lobby of the
Radisson Hotel, originally the
Sportsman Inn, on North
Roosevelt Boulevard.
From the collection of the
late Key West author and histo-
rian Wright Langley, the pho-
tos create a window into the his-
tory of our island and "the dif-
ferent groups of people that are
part of the island's distinctive
history," according to the free
photo guide associated with the
photos.
The images show 1917 off-
shore powerboat races,
Hemingway, spongers, the El
Anon Ice Cream parlor, sailors
on Duval Street in the Navy's
heyday, Key West native jazz
great Fats Navarro, a baseball
team drawn from the U.S.S.
Maine, cigar makers, and vari-
ous businesses from the 1800s
through the mid 1900s.
Notable is a photo of the 723
Duval St. ticket office for
Havana "only 30 minutes and
$10 away" in the late 1940s.
Langley's books are available
at the lobby gift shop.

Italian brings Core N' Grato home


By MARGARET MENGE

t's like watching a good
minor league baseball team,"
said the waiter at the Key
West Yacht Club, going from
one young opera singer to anoth-
erTtaking dinner orders (chicken,
fish or meatloaf?). It was a casu-
al remark he'd tossed over the
shoulder almost. But it bore out
just that way.
The 22 young men and
women, staying in Key West for
four weeks as part of the Key
West Symphony Orchestra's
ninth annual Young Artist Opera
Program, gave their first per-
formance of the season at the
yacht club, on North Roosevelt
Boulevard, on June 5. The small

bit of hard floor at the far end of
the dining room was their stage.
A crack ran diagonally through
it. The piano was an upright
pushed against the back wall.
And some of the patrons were
more interested in conversation
than in listening to an aria. But
for those who focused their
attentions on the singing, there
was, even in the imperfections
- maybe more so in and among
the imperfections something
amazing.
The two women who sang the
first duet, by Mozart Laura
Shofner and Amanda
McGranahan were confident
and energetic, commanding the
stage, such as it was, and filling
the room with their voices. In
the second song, from "Elixir of
Love," Davron Monroe from
Jacksonville and Sean Temple
from Texas were wonderfully
matched both theatrically and
musically as a peddler of love
potions and a man desperately in
need of a love potion.
While some of the songs sung
by the young women, in particu-
lar, were a little too sweet, or
overly acted (batting eyelashes
quickly becomes hard to watch),
* the relief came around quickly as


calmer voices joined in. And it
was worth waiting through the
less pleasing moments, so that
when something special began to
happen, you could pick it out.
"And now we have a real
treat," Donna Roll, the director
of the program, told the small
audience at the yacht club. "We
have a real Italian, from Naples."
It was about halfway through the
concert, and a superb trio had
just finished singing a piece
from "Die Fledermaus."
"Giovanni has only been with
us a short time," Roll continued.
"But he is already in my heart.
*And he is going to sing you my
favorite Neapolitan song, 'Core
N'Grato,' which means 'I gave
you everything, I loved you so
much. And you are ungrateful.'"
And with that the 31-year-old
Italian from Boston, Giovanni
Formisano, walked out, wearing
a black dress shirt, untucked,
with white pants and white.
leather shoes. And then the piano
began: three phrases with the
fingers falling down in eighth
notes at the end of each. "Catari!
Catari!" began the singing. And
it is not good. His voice is weak.
It is scratchy. It is failing, quick-
ly. Giovanni stopped, bent at the
waist and coughed. Was it over?
No. He picked up again and car-


Giovanni Formisano sang 'Core N'Grato' at the Young Artist
Opera Program's first concert at the Key West Yacht Club on
June 5. Fans of HBO's 'The Sopranos' will recognize the song as
sung by 'Junior' Soprano (Dominic Chianese) in episode 39
which aired on May 20, 2001:

ried on with the singing, and at
first it was like after an ice
skater falls, when you know
there cannot be a full recovery.
But then you saw that in this
case, there would be. He drew
out his phrases long and sang
sincerely and with feeling. And
when he reached up to the high-
er notes, his voice opened up
and its full power was felt. It
was enough to make you want to
drop to your knees and cry out -

Art behind the scenes


Upper Keys arts
group joins forces

In 2007 they joined forces
to bring Arlo Guthrie to the
Upper Keys for a standing-
room-only show at the TIB
Bank of the Keys
Amphitheatre. Now they're
miling their partnership per-
manent.
The South Florida Center
for the Arts is merging with
Islamorada Community
Entertainment (ICE). Both
organizations have been active
in bringing arts into the public
schools and sponsoring schol-


arships for students in the arts.
"It got to the point where we
were doing so many things
together with similar purposes,
it became a no-brainer," said
Dave Feder, president of ICE.
Every year since 1995, the
South Florida Center for the
Arts has organized the Upper
Keys Concert Series, bringing
some stand-out performers like
the Glenn Miller Orchestra and
the Artie Shaw Orchestra to
Islamorada. ICE, meanwhile,
has brought in the American
Shakespeare Center for per-
formances of "Henry V" and
"Taming of the Shrew."

Ozlem Berg started as a
projectionist at the
Tropic Cinema in Key
West three months ago. She's -
originally from Istanbul,
Turkey, where she got her
degree from Istanbul University
in underwater videography. She
did her first dive in the Black
Sea and went on frequent dive
trips to the Mediterranean.
This is Berg's first job work-
ing as a projectionist in a movie
house. "I love movies," she
says. She runs the films that
show on the three screens at the
Tropic two of them off enor-
mous reels threaded through the
projector, and one from a laptop
computer.
Istanbul is the only city in
the world that sits on two conti-
nents Europe and Asia, as it
extends to both sides of the
strait that separates the two
land masses. Berg says she con-
siders herself to be an
"Anatolian" as she is from
the part of the city on the east
side of the Bosphorus Straits.

Marathon High's new $7.8 million auditorium


Grads, families
find new space
fits just right
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
How about these digs?"
said the guidance coun-
selor in welcoming par-
ents of the 50th graduating class
of Marathon High School last
week. The high school's Cap
Ceremony was held June 10 in
the new $7.8 million state-of-
the-art auditorium at the high
school.
The auditorium is entered
from a back courtyard. It is
plain, with clean lines, dark
blue fabric seats, and accents of
light-colored wood. It is neither
cavernous nor intimate, but
somewhere in between, with
seating for 553. It is much
smaller than the 900-capacity
auditorium that some in the dis-
trict wanted to see. Sunny
Booker, safe-school coordinator
the Monroe County School
District and the producer of
"Famous," the high school's
first production held in the new
theatre, says she was one of
those advocating for a smaller
hall. "They're never, at a school
the size of Marathon, going to
see 900," she said.
One of the nice things about
the Marathon High School audi-
torium is the flexibility in seat-
ing an upstairs balcony has
seating for more than 100, but
can also be closed off with a
curtain.
The auditorium was comfort-
ably full on Tuesday night as
families of graduating seniors
who arrived early for cap night
settled into seats and watched a
slide show of old photographs
of Marathon High School grad-
uates projected onto the back


wall of the stage. "We're very
excited," said Leslie Brier,
when asked what she thought of
the new space. She was there
with her mother in the front
row, who was in a wheelchair.
"Let me tell you something,"
she said. "I brought her home
from Virginia. I told her where
it was going to be held and she
said, 'That's the coolest.'" Her
81-year-old mother, Jessica, had
come to see her granddaughter,
18-year-old Jessica Brier, grad-
uate from Marathon High
School.
"It's a beautiful facility,"
said Neil Rice, who'd come
from New York for the gradua-
tion of his cousin. "I'm pretty
impressed with the building so
far. It's modem and up-to-date.
It just takes you back."
A catwalk overhead connects
two spotlight rooms, with a
main sound and light room
overlooking the theatre through
a sheet of glass. A large section
of the front of the stage can be
removed to mak6 room for a pit
band.
Marathon High School
Principal Harry Russell gave
L'Attitudes a tour of the audito-
rium last week and talked about
what it means to have the new
space. Russell says that with the
excitement stirred up among
students and staff following the
performances of "Famous" on
June 5 and 6, he's hoping a
member of the high school's
staff will volunteer to head an
after-school drama program.
Booker says she's hoping
that next year and in years to
come, the high school can stage
two shows a year one in the
fall and one in the spring, and
maybe do a one-act show in
addition, so that Marathon kids
can enter the state one-act com-
petition.


Katie Greenman, Leah Suffer, Natalie Wright and Sarah Dodamead rehearse 'Famous' in
Marathon High School's new auditorium in May.

Peace Festival goes through Sunday


Events include
classes today,
paddle outing
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, which
started Friday and continues
through Sunday.
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 remainder of the
festival schedule:
Today: opening ceremony
-from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. at the
Treasure Village Montessori
Charter School, mile marker 86.7
oceanside. It will include the rais-
ing of a peace flag and a color
guard with American flags.


Campers get immersed

in the environment


Stock Island
garden hosts
the program
The Key West Tropical Forest
and Botanical Garden has a dif-
ferent kind of summer camp
approaching, one focusing on
how to be a naturalist.
Many esteemed artists, writ-
ers, politicians, scientists,
philosophers and religious lead-
ers gained their inspiration from
immersing themselves in the out-
doors. Botanical Garden staff
says that's becoming a lost art so
it wants to sow the seeds of natu-
ralism early in Keys students.
The camp geared toward that
runs from June 23 to July 3.
Campers will learn to identify
some of the plants and animals at
the Botanical Garden, off College
Road on Stock Island. More than
that, though, staff hopes the kids
will start to learn how to look at
nature, what it means to be a nat-
uralist, hear stories from natural-
ists, learn about environments in
different parts of the world, and
learn how to stay comfortable in
the outdoors.
Cost is $100 per child. A
snack and water are provided;
students may bring a bag lunch.

Harvard University -Buddhist
Chaplain Lama Migmar Tseten
will preside over the flag ceremo-
ny. Montessori students will per-
form a song called "Keys' 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 EPace

Visitors to the Plantation
Hammocks Preserve in
Islamorada can take a break on
A~rks of art, courtesy of
Montessori Island Charter
School students.


An eight-week project by
-fourth-, fifth- and sixth-
graders ended with the cre-
ation of concrete benches
adorned with Keys scenes
depicted in mosaic tile.
The benches were unveiled
Tuesday in a ceremony at the
nature area, adjacent to
Founders Park on Plantation


U.OL


Key.
Students in Diana
McGuirk-Hille's art class first
submitted designs for the
bench mosaics, then voted on
which designs would be used.
Then they glued, cut and
grouted the tile onto the
benches, which were made by
the Coral Shores High School
construction class.
Funding for the project
came from a grant from State
Farm Insurance following an
application process headed by
Michele Sutter, Monroe Youth
Challenge Program coordina-
tor in the Upper Keys.
Students also learned about
native plants from Islamorada
landscaping adviser Phyllis
Mitchell and then planted
trees on public areas that had
been damaged by hurricanes.
Disaster recovery was an ele-
ment of the grant.


Art teacher Diana McGuirk-Hille and Josh Bernstein, co-designer
of this bench with Robert Hernandez, show off their underwater-
themed seating. Alex Johnson (below) shows his original design
for the lighthouse mosaic, which fellow students helped turn into
reality.

Coach 'unretires'


from the Keys


Bottom heads
to Wolverines
as. swim chief
McClatchy Tribune

It wasn't as if Mike. Bottom
was searching for a change -
he was in the midst of one.
After spending the bulk of
his career coaching college
swimming the last 10 years
as co-head coach of the men's
team at the University of
California Bottom moved
last summer with his family to
the Upper Keys.
Life was good. Bottom,
longtime personal coach of
five-time Olympic gold medal-
ist Gary Hall Jr., was coaching
swimmers at The Race Club in
Tavernier. He bought a house


and renovated it. The hot tub
was wired just this week.
"It wasn't like I was looking
to leave," Bottom said.
But he is.
Bottom, 52, has been hired
as the men's swimming head
coach at the University of
Michigan and its high-perform-
ance postgraduate group, Club
Wolverine. He will replac&eob
Bowman, who will leave next
month'to take over as CEO of
the North Baltimore Aquatic
Club in Maryland.
In four years, Bowman led
U-M to a 30-8-1 record and one
Big Ten championship.
Bottom acknowledges
coaching U-M will be a chal-
lenge: "A learning curve," he
said.

Most anglers
in state are
already licensed
By DAVID HAWKINS
dhawkins@keysreporter.com

- All Florida saltwater anglers
may have to register with the
federal government by next
year unless Florida changes its
fishing license rules.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
says in a prepared statement
that a national saltwater angler
registry would be part of a
"state and federal initiative to
improve the quality and accu-
racy of data on marine recre-
ational fishing catches."
Julie Rowland, a legislative
affairs specialist with Florida's


Fish and Wildlife'Conservation
Commission, said it's not cer-
tain yet what the federal gov-
ernment is going to require.
"What's going to be accept-
ed by the feds, we're still wait-
ing to see," Rowland said. "If
[Florida's] licensing system
gathered the data that the feds
needed, then they could
exempt Florida."
NOAA's plan would require
recreational anglers who fish
in federal ocean waters to "be
registered in a national saltwa-
ter angler registry before fish-
ing in 2009."
Florida requires anglers
who fish in the ocean and bays
have a state-issued fishing
license. But Florida allows res-

idents to fish from bridges,
docks and along shore without
a license.
Federal officials "currently
view our shoreline exemption
as inadequate," Rowland said.
* Ted Forsgren, executive
director of the Coastal
Conservation Association, said
his group supports removing
the exemption for shoreline
anglers.
If all Florida saltwater
anglers had to be licensed, the
federal fisheries agency would
likely skip the registration
requirement in Florida,
Forsgren said.
North Carolina's fishing
license rules are similar to
Florida's but don't exempt


shoreline anglers, and the fed-
eral government has indicated
it won't require that's state's
anglers to register, Forsgren
said.
"All we need to do is get rid
of that shoreline exemption,"
Forsgren said. He predicted
anglers would have to pay a
fee for the federal registration.
"We want the money to come
to Florida, not the feds," he
said.
"The irony is that [the fed-
eral agency] can only license
those people who are in feder-
al waters. In Florida they
already have to be licensed.
Under Florida law, if you fish
out of a boat, whether it's in
state or federal waters, you
need a fishing license."
Rowland said the FWC tried
but failed to get the Florida


Legislature to remove the
license exemption for shore-
line anglers in the last legisla-
tive session.
Forsgren 'said Florida first
required saltwater fi-shing
licenses in the late 1980s.
Before that, there was no
requirement for saltwater
anglers.
The Coastal Conservation
Association at that time pushed
for license fees to be dedicated
to research, fishery manage-
ment and marine law enforce-
ment.
NOAA says a national reg-
istry would give more accurate
information for decisions
about conserving fish stocks
and for measuring "the posi-
tive economic effects of recre-
ational fishing on the national
economy."


Snow is replacing


relaxed Keys lifestyle


COACH / From 41

The reason can be found in
the results of the men's sprint-
freestyle events during the last
three Olympic Games. Half of
the 18 medals won have been
captured by athletes Bottom
has coached from the United
States and abroad.
Bottom's forte is speed:
He's known internationally as
one of the sport's best sprint
coaches.
"It's going to be a very big
change from Jon Urbanchek
and Bob Bowman," said Mark
Schubert, USA Swimming's
general manager and national
team head coach. ,
Schubert knows Bottom bet-
ter than most. Bottom was
Schubert's assistant at the
University of Southern
California in 1994-97.
"There will be a big transi-
tion," Schubert said.
Bottom knows that. That's
why he has enlisted the help of
Urbanchek, who retired as U-M
men's swimming head coach in
2004 after winning 13 Big Ten
championships and one NCAA
title in 22 years. Urbanchek,
72, has agreed to assist Bottom
on the pool deck during the
transition.


Urbanchek served in a simi-
lar capacity as a volunteer
coach for Bowman's staff
while he also stayed involved
with the .national team as
Schubert's special assistant.
This time, though, Urbanchek
insists he won't play an official
role on Bottom's coaching
staff. But he will help.
"The last 46 years I've been
getting up at 5 o'clock in the
morning," Urbanchek said with
a laugh. "I don't think that's
going to change for a couple
more years."
Though Bottom is rooted in
the sprint events, Urbanchek
said it's not fair to characterize
him only as a sprint coach.
Urbanchek fought the stigma of
being labeled as a distance
coach for much of his career.
"I mean, we won the 1995
NCAA championship with a
well-balanced team,"
Urbanchek said. "Mike is an
excellent teacher he will be
able to coach across the board.
He reminded me last week that
17 years ago he asked me if I
would hire him as an assistant
coach."
Bottom said: "I actually
asked Jon more than once."
Bottom said he plans to
begin interviewing to hire his
assistant coach soon.

Friedman was the focus when on the court


FRIEDMAN / From 41

why even think about Georgia
Tech?" Blake's father Jamie
said.
"He's got such a great head
on his shoulders," mother
Laurie said. "Whatever he
decided to do we were behind
him."
Oxford, Ga., is about 40
minutes outside Atlanta,
which Laurie said is like a
home away from home for
Blake.
"Atlanta is such a great
place because our whole fami-
ly is there. He'll be surround-
ed by that support," she said.
Dolphins coach Kevin
Freeman said Friedman raised
his game to new levels this
season due to his dedication
and hard work in the weight
room and on the court.
"He said he knew he wasn't
going to be 6-2 or 6-3, so he
had to work on everything else
to make himself better and
make himself stand out and he


did that," Freeman said.
"From seventh grade to 12th
grade, he got better every year.
He'd come to the gym and he
worked harder than he did the
day before, that's how you
become a better player."
Admittedly not a vocal
leader, Friedman prefers lead-
ing by example on the court.
Freeman says teammates fol-
lowed that lead and he credits
Friedman with leaving the
program better than it was
when he entered.
"We didn't have the great-
est year record-wise [9-15],
but I said at our awards ban-
quet this is the best year we've
ever had because of the team
cAinaraderie, and it's all
because of him," he said.
Friedman finished sixth in
the state this season with a
22.8-points-a-game average,
shooting 43 percent. He also
has 5.3 rebounds and two
assists per game all while
being the primary focus of
every defense the Dolphins
faced.


"The last few games of the
season, [teams] started play-
ing this box-and-one defense
where four guys would play a
zone and one guy would just
shadow me the whole time. It
made it tougher, but it made
me a better player. You have to
earn what you're going to
get," Friedman said.
Jamie said attending
Emory's basketball camp last
year was a turning point for
Friedman confidence-wise.
He'd been to several larger
camps and left discouraged
because taller players stood
out. But working with Emory
assistant coach Geno Morgan
brought out the best in
Friedman's game.
Freeman "told us last
spring Emory contacted and
wanted information about
him. We thought the best thing
to do was take him right
there," Jamie said. "When we
got to the camp, Blake said to
me and his grandfather he did-
n't think he was going to be
good enough to play college


ball after the last few camps
we had been to. He came out
of that camp with his shoul-
ders 10 times higher because
of coach Morgan."
Friedman was the camp's
most valuable player, won free
throw and three-point shoot-
ing contests and was even
invited to compete against
Emory players after camp was
over. He heads to Oxford now-
with a chance to start next sea-
son and after two years earn a
spot on Emory's team.
"They're bringing in seven
or eight freshmen and only
one or two from last year, so
it's going to be open for every-
one," Friedman said.
"Since seventh grade, he's
been like another .son to me
and it's just cool to see how
hard he's worked, what its
come to and I know he'll do
well. He is the Marathon
Dolphin, he's a part. of this
program and he'll always be a
part of it and where we are
right now is because of him,"
Freeman said.
