All would need
discharge permit
under new law
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys boaters can't
yet count on sailing away from a
federal crackdown on all dis-
charges into the water.
Unless Congress intervenes
by Sept. 30, the federal
Environmental Protection
Agency could begin regulating
all water discharges from recre-
ational boats including from
bilge pumps and deck runoff.
In a worst-case scenario,
boating advocates says, owners
of recreational boats could be
required to.buy permits costing
hundreds of dollars.
In March, U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson introduced Senate Bill
2766 to forestall the Sept. 30
deadline for enactment.
In May, the bill and a com-
panion bill in the House passed
out of committee. That clears
the way for a full vote, but no
vote has been scheduled.

Saunders draws opposition


BALLOT / From I

Democrat. Friday, Republican
Ernie Hernandez of Homestead
was listed on the state Division of
Elections Web site as "active,"
meaning his paperwork to run
was filed but not yet certified..He
couldn't be reached for comment
Friday.
Up until Thursday, the incum-
bent Saunders was the lone can-
didate in District 120, which
takes in all of Monroe County
and part of Miami-Dade.
"You just never know. I guess
that's just the way it goes," he
said. "I don't mind. I like cam-
paigning, as you know. It gives
me a chance to get up to Dade
County.".,


The one declared candidate
who failed to qualify was sheriff
candidate George Thoman of Big
Pine Key, who jumped into the
race the first week of this month
- much later than the other five
candidates.
Perhaps the most-watched
races will be the August primary
pitting Republican County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
against Kim Wiginton, and
incumbent Commissioner Sonny
McCoy against Carlos Rojas.
Whoever wins those races goes
on to the general election against
other opponents.
Spehar and McCoy are part of
what has become known county-
wide as the Gang of Three, a vot-
ing bloc that includes Mayor
Mario, D. Ge nnro The. trio, is


seen as often favoring develop-
ment.
Key West resident Sloan
Bashinsky was originally running
unaffiliated for McCoy's seat,
then switched to Republican,
then this week switched back to
having no affiliation.
Kolhage is among the coun-
ty's longest-serving public ser-
vants, and widely respected for
his integrity and knowledge of
the county's inner workings. He
marks 25 years in office this year,
Kolhage said he's glad to focus
on work rather than having to
campaign.
"We've got plenty to do, and
it's a difficult year,, and I really
have to expend my tirie on the
budget," he said. "It's going to be

Prices fuel ridership


By DAN GALLAGHER

Although the Florida East Coast Railway was
operating after January 1912, 18 of the concrete
bridges, mostly in the Lower Keys, were not yet


built. Wooden trestles were used for the tempo-,
rary track until the last concrete bridge (the Niles
Channel Viaduct) was finished in late 1916.

BUS / From I

ures for the Dade-Monroe
Express jumping 16.5 percent
going from 20,111 in February
2007 to 23,421 riders this past
February, according to Miami-
Dade Transportation Department
spokesman Manny Palmeiro.
More recent data isn't yet
available, but no doubt the. fol-
lowing months have seen
increases, too, he said.
"We attribute the increase
basically to the high cost of gas,"
Palmeiro said. "For people on the
fence who were wiling to give
public transit a try, $4 prices have
forced them over the fence.
They've come to find it's not that
difficult to take the bus."
The Dade-Monroe Express
provides rides from Marathon to
Florida City's Wal-Mart. The fare
is $2.35.
The Lower Keys Shuttle
offers service from Key West to
Marathon and links up with the
Dade-Monroe Express in
Marathon.
Ridership data for Lower
Keys routes indicates a 5.5 per-
cent increase, or 367,415 project-
ed riders, from October 2007 to
June 2008 compared to 348,086
from October 2006 to June 2007.
That's an increase of 19,329 rid-
ers.
In January 2007, figures show,
6,615 people rode the bus. This
past January, ridership climbed to
10,029.
Marathon resident Lonnie
Parish doesn't drive, but "even if
I did drive, this is the thing to do.
It's common sense and it's
cheap," he said.
To get to Big Pine Key and
visit friends, Parish says he pays
a buck a ride using his senior cit-
izen discount.
Lower Keys regular fares
recently increased a dollar, jump-
ing from $2 to $3, while seven
days' worth of trips went from
$12.50 to $16 (senior citizens,
military personnel and students
.pay discounted rates). The Key
West City Commission approved
the changes in March.
Even with the increased costs,
commuters from Key West to
Marathon are finally trying out
public transit.
Marathon resident Greg Davis
has a car but is giving the bus a
go because of gas prices. Friday,
his family was taking the bus for
a doctor's appointment in Key
West.


"Our Suburban costs almost
$100 to fill up," Davis said.
The Southernmost City is an
exception to the Keys' growing
public transit trends. Key West
bus ridership declined following
a May increase in rates, along
with a decrease in visitors and
full-time residents, city
Transportation Director Myra
Wittenberg says.
"Contrary to the city routes,
the use of the Lower Keys routes
has increased significantly,"
Wittenberg said.
Key West resident Tom
Milone says he takes a more lux-
urious mode of public transport
- the Greyhound bus. He says it
cost around $70 round trip to get
to Miami International Airport.
"It's a more comfortable ride,"
Milone said. "You can stretch out
and relax."

Sick whale found
off Islamorada

A stranded whale, tentatively
identified as a Gervais' beaked
whale, arrived at a marine mam-
mal rehabilitation in Key Largo
Friday afternoon.
The whale was discovered
Friday morning by an
Islamorada resident who saw the
animal floundering in shallow
waters behind her home. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission was contacted, as
were officials from the Marine
Mammal Conservancy, based in
Key Largo. A rescue team was
deployed.
The whale's length is esti-
mated at about 14 feet and its
weighs at least 1,200 pounds,
according to Jana Fly, director
of veterinary medicine for the
Marine Mammal Conservancy:
"It appears to be an older ani-
mal," Fly said. "There is weight
loss and it appears to be mildly
dehydrated."
MMC President Robert
Lingenfelser said the first prior-
ity for rescuers at the center will
be to maintain the stability of
the whale's basic life systems.
That will require a round-the-
clock vigil by volunteers.
Lingenfelser added that a
blood sample had been drawn
and it was being prepared Friday
to be shipped to a laboratory for
diagnosis.

Without congressional intervention, permits are coming


BOATING / From 1

"We have jumped over two
huge hurdles in both the Senate
and House committees," said
Margaret Podlich, overseeing
governmental affairs for
BoatUS, the nation's largest
advocacy group for recreation
boaters. "However, with only
weeks left in the congressional
session before September, we
are facing a tight timeline."
Monroe County has 25,370
registered recreational boats and
2,653 commercial boats.
The federal bill, if passed,
would block the EPA from
requiring recreational boats to
have a permit to discharge "bilge
water, cooling water, weather
deck runoff, oil water separator
effluent or effluent from proper-
ly functioning marine engines or
for any other discharge that is


incidental to the normal opera-
tion of such vessel."
In 1973, the EPA issued an
exemption from clean-water reg-
ulations for incidental dis-
charges of ballast and runoff
water from vessels.
Concerned that ballast water
from large ocean-going ships
contributed to the release of
invasive nonnative fish species
in U.S. waters, environmental
groups sued the government,
saying the exemption wasn't
legally authorized.
In 2006, the courts agreed,
declaring all vessels commer-
cial and some 13 million recre-
ational vessels must have fed-
eral permits for discharged
water.
The Clean Boating Act of
2008, submitted by Nelson and
Sen. Barbara Boxer, seeks to
"exclude recreational boaters
and anglers from the federal and


state permitting requirements
under the Clean Water Act
designed for land-based industri-
al facilities and ocean-going
commercial ships," according to
a summary.
"Legislation is the only
magic bullet for this," said. Scott
Croft, representing BoatUS. "If
the legislation does not pass, the
EPA guidelines would apply to
all vessels, maybe even dinghies


and kayaks."
"It could wind up costing sev-
eral hundred dollars per boat,"
Croft said. "Right now, no one.
knows."
Bryan Gulley, speaking for
Nelson, said the law to block the
permit requirement for recre-
ational boats wouldn't allow
maritime polluters to discharge
oil or sewage.
"All those are covered by


separate laws," he said.."This
has nothing to do with sewage
discharges, which we know are a
big concern in the Keys."
. In recent appearances, U.S.
Sen. Chuck Schumer of New
York has been making impas-
sioned pleas to get the bill
passed, saying a federal dis-
charge permit for recreational
boats would be "sheer stupidity,"
according to news accounts.

Keys Opinion


As fuel costs rise,

Keys challenged more

Fallout from high gas prices continues to pile up, triggering
serious concerns in the Keys tourism industry.
The latest blow came Friday with Delta Airlines' announce-
ment it's closing down a Key West-Orlando flight.
Company statements focus on the cost and risk of operating
small regional planes when aviation fuel prices jumped 70
percent since last spring.
An Orlando Sentinel report quotes a Delta senior vice pres-
ident as saying that "high fuel prices and regional jets are like
oil and water: They don't necessarily mix."
The Delta executive said small regional jets typically have
a capacity for 50 passengers. And many of them serve tourist
markets, where price is always a factor in how many seats are
sold for any given flight.
Air service into and out of large business hubs carry a per-
centage of full-fare and first-class or business class passen-
gers who help make those routes more profitable.
With short-haul flights into smaller cities, especially tourist
destinations, those economics don't apply, thus Delta's pull-
back from Key West, Panama City and other smaller markets.
Memorial Day weekend in the Keys proved a mixed bag for
tourist-dependent businesses, judging from most reports.
Upper Keys businesses didn't see a marked drop from last
year's volume, while Key West and the Middle Keys did.
It doesn't take much industry expertise to figure out that
high gas prices are a factor, especially given the 106-mile trek
from Key Largo to Key West for auto travelers.
A reduction of air service at Key West International Airport
will hurt, but the numbers there are small compared to visi-
tors who arrive by car.
Many repeat guests fly into Miami or Fort Lauderdale and
rent cars for the drive to Key West. Now that car rental rates
are higher than last year and gasoline is. well above $4 a gal-
lon, those added costs for a Keys vacation just make it
tougher to fill rooms.
Some Keys hoteliers are reducing rates in hopes of attract-
ing more business, especially from nearby counties where a
quick vacation getaway may increasingly replace those cross-
the-ocean or cross-the-country jaunts of yore.
Any relief from high gasoline prices appears long term;
there are no quick fixes on this one.
That means this summer season will be a major test of how
Keys tourism leaders and public officials respond to this chal-
lenge.
We all have a lot riding on their success.

Nonprofits must be funded to help our most needy


EDITOR:
It is no secret that the economic times in
which we live have put a pinch on the funding
that a variety of nonprofit organizations
receive. And it is no secret that it's not only
*those nonprofit organizations that feel that
pinch, but those who distribute public money,
as well. Both the agencies and those who help
fund them are between the proverbial rock and
a hard place.
In the late.1980s and early 1990s, people
that were homeless or, perhaps better put,
houseless, lived not only on the streets but
behind dumpsters, in the mangroves or the
dark areas about town. They lived under build-
ings and behind air conditioners, out of sight
and out of mind.
Those of us who attempted to address these
problems learned some important lessons. We
learned that some people were simply destined
to live out their days going from place to place
without ever being able or willing to change
their circumstances or situations. It did not
really matter why; the fact was that they were
human beings in trouble and their predicaments
had to be addressed. So we tried.
We passed out toiletries and organized feed-
ings, bought medicine and Band-Aids and all


that sort of thing. Almost every church
throughout the Keys and Key West helped.
When they could not, the pastors, rabbis and
others did.
Businesses helped. People with no religious
affiliation helped. School children helped. All
sorts of people helped.
We did lots of good but we also failed. We
needed counseling skills that we did not have.
We needed funds. We needed direction, coordi-
nation and professional management.
Those were the days before various agencies
such as the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition or
Samuel's House or a number of other social-
service organizations came into existence.
Our communities need the skill of Father
Steve Braddock and the Florida Keys Outreach
Coalition staff. We need Samuel's House. We
need the Florida Keys Children's Shelter. Our
communities need all of the nonprofit agencies
that are being threatened by current economic
difficulties.
For many, a few paychecks or a helping
hand may be all that stands between them and
the streets.

'Progress' doesn't always better a community


EDITOR:
I recently had a conversation with a couple
from Miami who were down here on a fishing
trip, and they commented on how much
progress we've made here in the Keys. I
quickly gave them my thoughts about
progress.
What used to be sleepy little fishing vil-
lages have become victims of progress.
Quaint little Conch homes have progressed
into mega-buck condos. Progress kicked 90 or
so residents out of the Gulf Stream Mobile
Home Park in Marathon to make way for
mega-buck condos. Progress killed or is
killing Jolly Roger, Whispering Pines and
many other workforce mobile home and RV
parks up and down the Keys.
Progress has all but wiped out our working
waterfronts and public access to the water.
Progress has forced multimillion-dollar sewer
systems down our throats that most of us will
not be able to afford, and driven the housing
market down and gas prices up.
Progress is killing our reefs and polluting
our nearshore waters. Progress has caused our
valuable workforce to leave the Keys to seek
a less-expensive existence elsewhere.
Many people move to small towns to get
away from big-city life. They will even com-
mute two hours or more each way to be able
to live the laid-back lifestyle that small-town
life affords them. Now comes progress rear-
ing its ugly head and the small-town fathers
endeavor to bring it to their doorstep, and
pretty soon the small town becomes a big
town and those people are right back where
they started.
Progress is good in many ways, of course


- science, computers, communications, med-
icines, etc. and it has definitely enhanced
our lifestyles to a great degree, but the collat-
eral damage that occurs from it is exactly
what has happened, and is happening, to us
here in the Keys.
Unfortunately for some, and fortunately
for others, here at home, progress has been
dealt a blow and we may get a reprieve for a
while. In the meantime, I am reminded of that
well-known quote from the movie "Field of
Dreams," "If you build it, he will come."
Looks like this time they built it but nobody
came. Too bad. So sad.

Keys reach out for one of their own


EDITOR:
I would like to take this time
to thank everyone who has been
supportive of me through the
course of my recovery from my
auto accident. I am so thankful
to have such great support from
the community, as well as the
Upper Keys Athletic
Association, to help me get
through all of this.
Most of all, I want to thank
the generous man from Ocean
Reef who wishes to remain


anonymous for matching the
funds that were raised at the
benefit. It's amazing the way the
community reached out and
helped me get through this
ordeal. I really can't explain in
words how much this really
means to me. It's a blessing.
Again, I would like to thank
everybody, and my heart goes
out to everyone. I love you all
very much.

Shelters, Stretch still inadequate


EDITOR:
I am still hearing several years
later about what could, would,
should been done in New
Orleans before Hurricane Katrina
and the failures of government to
respond afterward.
Now let's fast forward to 2008
and southeast to the Florida Keys.
The only thing we have done is
become more complacent because
we have not been visited by a hur-
ricane for two years. Our govern-
mental bodies and emergency
management folks have not
changed their procedures based on
the lessons of Katrina.
No provision has been made
for emergency shelters or for
after-the-storm predetermined
sources to get basic supplies of ice
and water, and medical treatment.
They claim everyone should
have their own emergency sup-
plies to last at least three days.
Great plan. What do they do if
those supplies get blown away by
a storm?
The Florida Department of
Transportation, in its infinite wis-
dom, has reconstructed the 18-
Mile Stretch from Key Largo to
Florida City, with the portion from
mile marker 106 to mile marker
115 virtually complete. All is well,
they tell us. We now have a new
additional northbound evacuation
lane. The two positive improve-
ments they have created are the
center road divider and the high-
level bridge to replace the Jewfish
Creek drawbridge.
But they have also created a
new disaster waiting to happen.
The center divider has no emer-
gency pass-throughs from mile
marker 106 to 113 (the county
line), nor will there be emergency
pass-throughs along other pArts of
the road to Florida City.
So now there will be few ways
to divert traffic to the southbound
lanes in the event of a road block-
age. Worse than that is emergency


vehicles might not be able to
reach a road-blocking accident
without a long trip north or south
to reach one of the few access
points to turn around.
All of the issues have been
brought to the attention of the
politicians and management peo-
ple in charge yet nothing changes.
So full speed ahead with our
mandatory evacuation and addi-
tional hurricane evacuation lanes
until we have a Katrina and then
the emergency management folks
will spend a few years telling us
about what we could, would,
should have done.
The only guarantee we have is
there will be hurricanes in the
future in the Florida Keys. I
believe it was President Reagan
who asked, "Are you better off
now than you were four years
ago?"
Howard Gelbman
Key Largo

Editor's note: Monroe County
opens shelters for Category 1 and
2 hurricanes. For storms stronger
than that, the Keys' designated
shelter is at Florida International
University. Also, DOT is taking
another look at pass-throughs for
the Stretch.


Driver cares
EDITOR:
Just a note of thanks to the
Keys Shuttle driver who, on
Memorial Day afternoon,
arranged for my wife to be
brought back to Key Colony
Beach on a southbound shuttle
when it was obvious she would
not make her flight out of Fort
Lauderdale. In addition, we were
not charged for the trip. Keep up
the good work.

Loop Current, contaminants


raise ante on drilling


The front page of the St. Petersburg Times
on Friday featured a photo of a Gulf of
Mexico oil-drilling platform. The headline
reads: "What would change? Where off-
shore oil drilling goes, a trail of beach decay
often follows."
Alarmist? Maybe, but research done by
Craig Pittman from the Times staff does cast
somewhat of a pall on the pro-drilling
enthusiasts who jumped on the John
McCain bandwagon this week.
As most Keys readers already know, the
Republican senator running for
president called for ending the
federal offshore drilling ban in
the eastern gulf and along the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts.
McCain cited high gas prices
and too much dependence on for-
eign oil in making his stand,
which also called for relaxing
regulations on nuclear power to
increase alternative energy capac-
ity at home.
Speaking to Texas oilmen in
Houston, McCain said "as for
offshore drilling, it's safe enough Wayne r
these days that not even Keynoter
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
could cause significant spillage
from the battered rigs off the coasts of New
Orleans and Houston."
Ah, the Arizona lawmaker ought to check
his facts before he makes speeches.
A U.S. Coast Guard report on the post-
Katrina impact notes that 115 oil platforms
were destroyed, another 52 significantly
damaged and 19 were cast adrift. As cited
by the St. Pete Times, "more than 7 million
gallons of petroleum products spilled."
In 1989, the Exxon Valdez dumped 11 mil-
lion gallons into Alaska's Prince William
Sound.
And it doesn't take a hurricane to trigger
pollution from offshore drilling platforms,
according to Pittman's research.
Stephen Leatherman, a professor at
Florida International University who annual-
ly ranks the best beaches in America, is
quoted in the Times article on the impact
drilling has had on the Texas coast. Texas
beaches, Dr. Beach says, "tend to be the
trash can of the gulf."
An estimated 3,800 offshore rigs operate
in the western gulf. What Leatherman and
others cite as the detritus of that industrial
process comes from seepage, empty oil
drums and tar balls that wash up on beaches.
The Times article cites a 2002 Mobile
Press-Register report on grouper and other
fish caught near Alabama's offshore rigs. It
says the fish "contained so much mercury
that they would not be acceptable for sale to
the public under federal guidelines," Pittman
wrote.
"The source: The drilling muds, which left


mercury in the sea bottom in concentrations
as high as that found at Superfund sites."
Whew, now we're talking some pretty
alarming information.
There are still those in the Keys, I'm sure,
who believe this debate over offshore
drilling is really not our concern, suggesting
the Florida Panhandle and west coast of the
state will feel the brunt of drilling.
But those skeptics ignore the Loop
Current, a warm ocean current in the gulf
that flows northward from Cuba and the
Yucatan Peninsula, moves north
into the Gulf of Mexico toward
Louisiana, then exits south and
east through the Florida Straits,
around the Florida Keys, and
eventually merging with the Gulf
Stream on the Atlantic coast.
S. This is important to recognize
because one of the elements in
; ^ McCain's proposal would end
the federal ban on offshore
drilling, but turn that over to the
states to decide in state territorial
waters.
larkham So even if Florida's lawmakers
Publisher resist the siren call from the oil
industry, expanded drilling by
neighboring states could still
wind up harming our waters, even as far
removed seemingly as the Keys are.
Yeah, this is scary stuff.



Words matter.
As proof of that, Monroe County
Commissioner George Neugent this week
found himself defending his record on coun-
ty spending after a constituent read the
Keynoter's front-page story last Saturday.
In that article, which reported on a project-
ed budget shortfall of $12.5 million,
Neugent is quoted as saying "we're in seri-
ous financial trouble. It does not look
good."
What caught the eye of the reader who
accosted the commissioner at lunch was a
reference to Neugent finding out about the
"magnitude of the financial problems at the
same time he learned a budget workshop
scheduled for next week was being can-
celed."
The constituent may have too easily over-
looked that word "magnitude."
Indeed, Neugent has been screaming about
the county's precarious financial situation
for the past three budget cycles. He was the
lone "no" vote for this year's budget and
last year's, too.
So from his perspective, these budget
shortfalls are the chickens coining home to
roost, just like he's been warning the past
few years.
Let's hope readers won't misinterpret that.

Drug testing might expand for school groups


Property plans
also are up
for discussion
By DAVID BALL
dball @ keysreporter.com

The possibility of requiring
drug tests for all Keys public
school students participating in
extracurricular activities goes
before the Monroe County
School Board when it meets
Tuesday at Coral Shores High
School in Tavernier.
Discussion of drug testing,


along with other district poli-
cies, is scheduled for the 10:30
a.m. workshop. The regular
board meeting, which includes
updates on the district's
Marathon Manor property and
the Harris School in Key West,
is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.
Superintefident Randy
Acevedo said the workshop will
continue board discussion on
new and updated district poli-
cies created annually by con-
sultant Neola Inc.
Some of the policy changes
are required by state law, while


others reflect new directions
from the board, such as banning
"active" politicking by district
employees on school property
and the debate over drug test-
ing.
"Shortly after this board was
in place, one of the first policies
we pulled out and modified was
for politicking," Acevedo said.
"I don't envision that policy
changing a lot during these dis-
cussions, but I think we want to
make sure we didn't lose any-
thing during this process of
updating the policies."
However, the drug-testing
policy change is a new discus-
sion, which he expects to hear
more of on Tuesday and proba-
bly after.
"They'll be some questions
that may lead to further work-
shop items or further discus-
sions down the road," Acevedo
said.
"I'm not opposed to expand-
ing drug testing from a preven-
tion standpoint and learning
experience. But I would say if


the board is going to do that,
they need to identify [budget]
reductions in other places."
Acevedo said the district has
spent up to $40,000 during a
single school year for drug test-
ing, which now is required only
for student athletes. He said
adding all extracurricular activ-
ities could create significant
expense at a time when the dis-
trict's budget is shrinking.
Board Chairman Steve
Pribramsky said the dollars
might need to be found, as he
feels the current system of drug
testing only athletes is unfair.
"An extracurricular activity
is something that is not a right
but an opportunity for the stu-
dents. It's a competitive situa-
tion," Pribramsky said.
"Whether it's the starting quar-
terback or first-chair trumpet
player in the band, I think all
our students should be held to
same standard.
"Cost figures will be brought
up," he added. "I think if we
can't afford it, maybe we should
test the athletes a little bit less
and still expand to students in
all activities."
Also on Tuesday's agenda
are updates on requests for pro-
posals being issued to redevelop
two district properties.
The first is the historic
Harris School in Key West,
which at one point the state was
interested in buying for preser-


vation; the price was $5.4 mil-
lion but those plans were
dropped.
In 2005, the state agreed to
provide the money in conjunc-
tion with a plan by the Rodel
Foundation to upgrade the dete-
riorating building to- create a
culinary school, public auditori-
um and artist colony.
Now, Acevedo said the dis-
trict is ready to solicit its own
bids for redevelopment.
The second property is the
former Marathon Manor. The
former convalescent center has
"sat empty since the district pur-
chased it in 2005 for $7.4 mil-
lion with the intention of creat-
ing teacher housing and more
space for adjacent Marathon
High School.
A deal to sell it to Cay Clubs
Resorts and Marinas in 2006
fell through, as well. Marathon
city-officials have recently dis-
cussed buying it for use as a city
hall; the city's offices are now
housed in two trailers at 99th
Street and U.S. 1.
Acevedo said a request for
proposals should be issued soon
for bids to develop the property
with the original intent of
teacher housing and expanded
school fields.
The agenda for Tuesday's
meeting is available at the dis-
trict's Web site, www.monroe
.kl 2.fl.us.

Yes to No Name sewers


But power
from the grid
is deferred
Keynoter Staff


Power from the grid will
have to wait until the sewer
issue is solved, the County
Commission told No Name
Key residents Wednesday.
Many of the 43 homeown-
ers on the Lower Keys island
turned out to offer their input
on a resolution that would end
a prohibition on central sewers
for the island and allow the
residents to theoretically get
their electricity from Keys
Energy Services. No Name
residents get their power from
solar energy and generators.
The Keys are under a state
mandate to have central sew-
ers by July 2010. If they are
not installed, individual home-
owners might have to pay for
costly on-site systems them-
selves to replace cesspits.
Leaking cesspits are cited as a
source of nearshore pollution.
Many echoed the senti-
ments of Kathy Wheeler, who
lives on neighboring Big Pine
Key: "They knowingly moved
to an island with no commer-
cial power." Therefore, she
said, they shouldn't demand it.
"Electricity on No Name
Key is going to have to be
addressed," Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro said. "I don't see any
way around it."
Ultimately, the commission
voted 4-1, with Commissioner
Sylvi'a Murphy dissenting, to
remove the prohibition against
a central sewer system but
with the caveat that electricity
from the grid is not in play
right now.

Charlie Bone, who has a weekend home on No Name Key,
says the main issue is getting a sewer system for the island that
pipes out the effluent.

on No Name, He and his wife
use the house, powered by
generators, on the weekends.
He was at the commission
meeting on Wednesday but
didn't speak. "I'm on the side
of having toilets that flush ...
and I think everybody is in


agreement on that... I think the
work that they were doing
there [Wednesday] was part of
getting rules out of the way so
they can do that."
He added, "We've got to
have something, and the
piped-out system, is what

Charges pile up for theft suspect


Bond now up
to $366,000
for Echemendia
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A crime-spree that lasted
three days has taken Keys
detectives more than three
weeks to sort out and that
may not be the end.
Burglary and theft charges
continue to be filed against
Frank L. Echemendia, 31, orig-
inally arrested May 31.


New charges ere lodged
Thursday, bringing the total
number to more than two.
dozen, and "more charges are
pending," said Deputy Becky
Herrin, spokeswoman for the
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
Stolen items include two
personal watercraft, a car, 18
propane tanks, cases of sun-
glasses, clothing, fishing gear,
wallets and credit cards.
The Jet Skis, trailered when
stolen from the parking lot at
Marina Del Mar in Key Largo,
were found abandoned in the


water at a trailer park near mile
marker 96.
"Pictures of Echemendia and
[girlfriend Jeanna] Applewhite
riding the Jet Skis were found
at their motel and in their car,"
Herrin said.
The suspect may have had a
romantic streak, she noted.
Echemendia reportedly tried
to use a stolen credit card to
buy roses and cigar from a local
store. When a clerk saw the
buyer's face didn't match the
photo on the credit card, the
buyer left, saying he would
return with the card holder.
He took the flowers and
cigars with him, but didn't


return.
The propane tanks, stolen
from storage racks at the Key
Largo Walgreens and the near-
by CVS, also were recovered.
Echemendia, who listed
addresses in West Palm Beach
and Bradenton, wasn't caught
because of car burglaries at
Ocean Divers and the Ramada
Resort on Key Largo, at Keys
Motel in Tavernier and Casa del
Sol motel on Grassy Key, .or
even the theft of the expensive
sunglasses from West Marine
and Divers Direct in Key Largo
and clothing from the World
Wide Sportsman in Islamorada
He was taken into custody
after several motorists reported
a Ford Expedition driving reck
lessly through Islamorada
Deputies found the vehicle a
the Waffle House in Key Largo
and discovered Echemendia
was wanted on multiple felony
warrants from Manatee County
The Expedition was
impounded. Inside, officer
found numerous items believes
linked to the thefts. A search o:

Trail Motel turned up mor

items.
"Our officers had to take in
all this property and, piece by
piece, see if it was linked to a
crime," Herrin said.
Detective Jason Madnick is
heading the ongoing investiga-
tion.
Applewhite, 29, was not
originally charged in the case
but warrants have been issued
for her arrest. Evidence
includes the photos of her sit-
ting on a stolen Jet Ski.
Echemendia remains in the
Monroe County Detention
Center. Bonds total more than
$366,000, but some of the
pending charges don't allow
release on bond.

Teen reports rape
s. at West Isle complex

d A 14-year-old girl says she
f was raped June 12 in the West
a Isle Club Apartments on Duck
e Avenue in Key West after tak-
ing acid and smoking marijua-
na with friends.
City police say she told them
she and her friends bought 18
hits of acid from someone in
Bayview Park. They ate the
hallucinogen she took four
hits then drove -to Dairy
Queen on United Street to buy
a quarter ounce of marijuana
from someone named Levi.
After smoking, a report
says, the teen's recollection of
events is hazy, except she
remembers she didn't want to
go home because she was
stoned. She ran into a friend
who said she could stay at her
boyfriend's West Isle apart-
ment. While there, lying on a
bed, her friend's boyfriend
"jumped on the bed and began
to have sex with her," the report
says. It also says the victim's
friend allegedly helped her
boyfriend take the victim's
pants off.
The girl "could not remem-
ber if she said no or not but
does remember pushing the
male's chest with her hands,"
the report says.
She described her friend's
boyfriend as about 27 years
old, 5-foot-2 and having a
Chubby face and skinny build.
She said he spoke Spanish.

Krause tells Marathon to


get tough on rogue builders


He says licensed
contractors are
being undercut
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Contractors from across the
Keys will appear before the
Marathon City Council Tuesday
requesting it crack down on
unlicensed work being done in
the city.
Mayor Pete Worthington put
the discussion item on the agen-
da for the regular meeting, say-
ing the Florida Keys
Contractors Association has
complained about the city's
inability to stop work at unli-
censed sites.
"Three months ago we had
them come before us and dis-
cuss unlicensed contractors. We
told them we'd do everything
we can to work with them and
then I found out about two
weeks ago they're hitting a
dead end with the Building
Department and Code
Enforcement on following up
on complaints," Worthington
said. "I was even told staff
doesn't have the ability to issue
a fine to an unlicensed contrac-
tor."
City Manager Clyde Burnett
said Marathon renewed an
interlocal agreement with
Monroe County last year under
which the county handles con-
tractor licensing and enforce-
ment. He said the county does
have the right to cite unlicensed
contractors in the city.
"If we get a call we'll send
Code out, but they'll send it to
the county," Burnett said.
Florida Keys Contractors
Association President Rudy
Krause said the group will urge
the council to actively pursue
unlicensed contractors operat-
ing in the city.
"If [Code Enforcement gets]
a complaint, they'll go check .it
out and if they go past a job and
they see construction going on
and they know there's no per-
mit pulled they're not allowed
to stop," Krause said, adding
only job sites where a com-
plaint has been made can be
inspected.


Krause said Monroe County
has been proactive in pursuing
illegal job sites and that a code
compliance officer hired less
than a month ago has already
issued 17 citations.
"The Contractors
Association is the one who
pushed to get the extra code
enforcement out and hit con-
struction sites to make sure
everyone had insurance and
everyone on the job was cov-
ered. She's been very effec-
tive," he said of the new officer.
Krause said many licensed
contractors are losing out on
jobs during an already slow
period because unlicensed ones
are able to underbid them.
"Any contractor that has a
license goes to continuing edu-
cation classes and pays work-
man's [compensation]. You
can't bid against someone who
doesn't have a license and does-
n't pay workman's [compensa-
tion] or liability insurance," he


said. "When everybody was
busy, contractors were too busy
to pay attention. When work is
slow it's a lot more noticeable."
Lifetime Dock & Lumber
owner Murray Shatt said home-
owners stand to lose more than
contractors by hiring unli-
censed workers.
"It's somewhat of an impact
on the contractors, but the resi-
dents are the ones who are
going to suffer if there's an
accident on their property. If
someone gets injured it's going
to fall directly on the home-
owner," Shatt said.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said he's in favor of halting
unlicensed work in Marathon,
but not by randomly inspecting
job sites around the city.
"I'm not in favor of proac-
tively beating on doors. I don't
think we're that big of a city
that we need a special compli-
ance officer," Cinque said. "I
think we have enough people in
house to take care of the prob-
lem."


This is a full time position & applicants should be in good
physical condition and able to lift files to storage, requiring the
ability to bend & stoop. Computer experience is required.

City slashing 30 jobs


Other cuts
also planned
to meet budget
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

By Oct. 1, the city of Key
West will likely cut 30 jobs
spread across numerous depart-
ments to cut costs in an agoniz-
ing budget year.
"Everybody is feeling the
pain,". Assistant City Manager
David Fernandez said.
Employees will be laid off "in a
substantial number of depart-
ments."
He added that departments
with unaffected personnel have
already been deprived of normal
operating resources.
"The first thing we did is go
through the operating expenses
and cut those," Fernandez said.
"I know we've cut more than $3
million, and we're still cutting."
The 2007-08 general fund is
$38.5 million. Finance Director
Roger Wittenberg said he hopes
to keep the 2008-09 budget flat
at that number.


CAMP began June 14 at
The Cultural American Music Marathon High school
with over 120 students.

es next year.
Fernandez says some city
vehicles, such as those in the
Public Works Department, have
global positioning systems that
track where an employee is and
if he or she is speeding, as well


as when, where and if an acci-
dent occurs. He plans to fit 25
total vehicles with a GPS.
"We like them," Public
Works Director R.B. Havens
said. "The tracking tools can
generate reports on anywhere
the vehicles have been. It helps
us keep an eye on our guys" and
monitor the mileage of street-
cleaning vehicles.
Some city employees bemoan
a new policy that will restrict
employees from taking home
their city vehicles. The rule will
also apply to police officers who
live up the Keys, but some cars
within city neighborhoods serve
as crime deterrents, Interim
Police Chief Donie Lee says.
City staff is looking for ade-
quate parking space for all the
vehicles. Some say the Angela
Street parking lot near City Hall
doesn't provide enough spaces
Havens says his department
has six take-home vehicles,
including his own.
"It's no secret that the [new]
take-home policy is unpopular,"
Fernandez said. "But with fuel
prices the way they are and
budget cuts so deep," it will save
costs equivalent to three
employees' salaries, he says.

tigation into code violations by
Bill Grosscup. Young says
Grosscup, who's friends with
Jones, didn't have proper build-
ing permits to build on his
Hilton Haven Drive property.
Young told Code
Enforcement investigator Randy
Pekarik to inspect the site and he
found non-permitted construc-
tion, the suit says. Code
Enforcement red-tagged the
property to stop further con-
struction.
Later that morning, the com-
plaint reads, Young got a call
from Jones, who told him to
"remove the red tag immediate-
ly."
Young was fired later that
year.
Depositions continue next

No more Mickey

It's going to be a bigger
headache to take the kids up to
see Mickey this fall.
Delta Air Lines announced
this week it's discontinuing direct
service from Key West to
Orlando. The change is to go into
effect at the end of summer.
If you want to fly from
Orlando to Key West in
September, you'll have to go up
to Atlanta and back down. Or
you'll have to go with one of the
other airlines Continental or
American Airlines and con-
nect through Miami, making
your flight from Key West to
Orlando at least twice as long and
a lot more expensive.
Only about 10 percent of
tourists coming to the Keys come
by plane, but the tourism industry
could still take a hit from Delta's
decision, says Harold Wheeler,
director of the Monroe County
Tourist Development Council.
Keys-based businesspeople will
be more directly affected.
Donna Golan, owner of Key
West Travel, says she has a hand-
ful of business travelers going up
to Orlando every week. They
want to get up and down quick -
for a one or two-day conference
usually and would rather not
connect in Miami. Golan is sym-
pathetic.

Orlando nonstop in July:
One hour, 10 minutes. Cost:

Continental Key West

Miami, in September: Three

"By the time I get up to
Miami, I'm done," she says of
flying from Key West in one of
the 50-seat regional jets run by
Chautauqua Airlines, under con-
tract to Delta.
"High fuel prices and regional
jets are like oil and water: They
don't necessarily mix," a senior
VP at Delta told The Orlando
Sentinel.
Delta's announcement this
week that it's eliminating a num-
ber of non-stop flights into
Orlando, including the once-a-
day, hour-and-10-minute flight
from Key West, follows on an
announcement earlier this month
that the airline is adding direct
flights to places like Stockholm
(from its Atlanta hub) and
Amman, Jordan (from New
York's JKF airport).

Islamorala's total taxable prop-
erty value for 2008 at $3.64 bil-
lion. That's a $237 million, or 6
percent, decrease from last year.
The property appraiser proj-
ects a $1.25 billion, or 4.4 per-
cent, decrease in taxes county-
wide.
This comes after budget cuts
last year led to the village coun-
cil adopting a 2007-08 tax rate of
about $1.68 per $1,000 of
assessed property value, which
was a 7 percent drop from 2006-
07. That rate balanced a general
fund, or operating budget, of
about $10.2 million.
Based on the Finance
Department report, the village
has collected 76 percent of its
expected revenue from the
beginning of the budget year in
October 2007 through this past
April. That includes 91 percent
of the $6.37 million in ad val-
orem taxes expected.
The report states the village
has spent 54 percent of projected
expenditures so far, with a pro-
jected fund balance of $2.18 mil-
lion.

City assessments may soon be in the mail


Three-week
appeals process
would start July 1
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com.

Marathon residents could
be closer to finding out exact-
ly what the city's sewer sys-
tem will cost them individual-
ly when the council votes on a
resolution dealing with sewer
assessments.
If the resolution is
approved, property owners
will be sent a notice of the
amount of the proposed
assessment for their property
on July 1.
The mailing, according to
the resolution, will allow
property owners to address
any issues through an appeals
process prior to the city adopt-


ing a final assessment roll July
22.
"Anyone, whether it's a
business or an individual, can
come forward and appeal,"
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said, adding the letter
will provide full information
about the process.
Tempest has been working
with Maytag Clean Laundry
owner Donna Farmer, who
was informed at a June 5. spe-
cial meeting that she will be
assessed for 31.7 equivalent
dwelling units, or EDUs.
Commercial properties will
pay EDUs based on a three-
year historical average of
water flow.
Farmer has said she is torn
whether to commit to the busi-
ness because she doesn't own
the building and should the
laundry fail, the owner still


must pay the assigned EDU
charge.
According to the resolu-
tion, the total system develop-


The total cost
of the system
is estimated
at roughly
$85.8 million;
the city will
contribute
$36.5 million
of this.


ment charge per household
will be $5,730, $4,681 of
which will be for EDU
charges. Residents also have


the option to pay the charge
over 20 years at $508 per year.
The total cost of the system
is estimated at roughly $85.8
million; the city will con-
tribute $36.5 million of this.
Councilman Mike Cinque
said he feels moving forward
with sewering will have a pos-
itive trickle-down effect on
the city, beginning with busi-
nesses redeveloping and the
city completing its beautifica-
tion efforts.
"I think we have the rates
down good that's with no
grant money and financing.
We're down where it's fairly
affordable, only $1,500 more
than it was in Little Venice
and they had 60 percent grant
money," Cinque said.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
while "any assessment is a bad
assessment," Marathon will
benefit by addressing other
serious concerns along with


wastewater.
"You're not only getting
the wastewater taken care .of,
you're also getting new roads
and alleviating some of our
biggest stormwater problems,"
Bull said.

Boat-ramp repairs closer


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5130 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
+ A resolution to accept the
qualifications of Randall G.
Tedder Construction Inc. to
reconstruct the boat ramp adja-
cent to the former Quay property
at mile marker 54.
The city received three pro-
posals for the job.and Tedder's
was the highest rated. City
Manager Clyde Burnett will
negotiate a contract to be
brought before the council
July 8.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is providing
$90,000 for the project through a
joint agreement with the city.
A resolution to accept a
group of change orders to the
city's road repair contract with
Globetec Construction totaling
$69,000.


Among the changes:
$255,000 to repave Florida Keys
Marathon Airport property after
installing sewer pipes, overlay
costs to several roads totaling
$180,000 and raising the bed on
Tingler Road to alleviate high-
tide flooding. They're offset by a
$434,000 reduction in the origi-
nal $1.5 million bid to repair
Sombrero Boulevard.
An ordinance under which
the city will remove debris from
private streets, roads and proper-
ty if a hurricane or other natural
disaster occurs.
The debris removal would be
the responsibility of the property
owner but "there are occasions
when, because of the magnitude
of the disaster and the threat
posed to life, health and safety,
there may be a compelling need
to remove debris from private
streets, roads and roadways and
other private property," a resolu-
tion states.

Credit union fires back with accusations


It accuses
fired CEO of
deleting files
By KYLE TEAL.
kteal@keynoter.com


Keys Federal Credit Union
is playing offense once again
in its legal battle with former
Chief Executive Officer John
Dolan-Heitlinger, accusing
him of erasing company files.
Dolan-Heitlinger, fired in
November, sued his former
employer in February. He's
demanding more than
$700,000 in severance, com-

pensation and retirement funds
denied after his termination.
In a May 21 motion
responding to Dolan-
Heitlinger's suit, the credit
union says "Keys Federal has
recently learned that Dolan-
Heitlinger has intentionally
destroyed key evidence in con-
nection with this litigation."
The motion also says he
obtained a digital media card
from a former member of Keys
Federal's Supervisory
Committee, allowing Dolan-
Heitlinger access to confiden-

tions."
As for the deleted files,
Keys Federal officials are
fuzzy on details.
"We don't know what was
in them because they are not
recoverable," attorney Alan
Rosenthal, representing the
credit union, told the Keynoter.
"We question whether he
looked, in that very short time
frame, at all of them and knew
they were personal at a time he
was under investigation."
Dolan-Heitlinger was put
on paid administrative leave
before he was fired. The credit
union conducted an audit in his
absence.
The lawsuit cites a forensic
computer expert's determina-
tion that "file scrubbing soft-
ware" was installed on- the
CEO's work computers. The
software, according to the
motion, destroyed 8,400 files.
Rosenthal said it's against
company policy to install and
use. scrubbing software to
delete files from the compa-

any's computers.
"I don't know why they're
pursuing this," Dolan-
Heitlinger said. "All I did was
remove my personal files." As
examples, he cites family pho-
tographs and genealogy docu-
ments.
The credit union also accus-
es former Human Resources
and Facilities Director Todd
German of possessing the
scrubbing software when he
was fired a week before Dolan-
,Heitlinger.
"Theie was no software on
my computer that wasn't put
there by [information technol-
ogy]," German said. "The
insinuation that I was involved
in some kind of Oliver North
shredding conspiracy is
absurd."
The files "were duplicates,"
Dolan-Heitlinger says. "These
guys have got all of the stuff.
They were saved on shared
files. We told everybody,
'Don't store anything work-
wise on your [personal com-


puter]. Store everything that's
a file on shared files.' That's
what I think everybody did.
That's what I did."
"Dolan-Heitlinger's inten-
tional destruction of key evi-
dence severely prejudices
Keys Federal's defense,
obstructs the ends of justice,
and undermines the integrity
of the legal system," the
motion reads.
The credit union's justifica-
tion for firing Dolan-
Heitlinger included allegations
including that he rented out
Keys Federal property as resi-
dential units, drafting "grossly
excessive" compensation
packages for employees and
contacted Keys Federal
employees while he was sus-
pended and under investiga-
tion.
The credit union's new CEO
is Robert Watson. Assets are
listed at nearly $197 million,
according to the National
Credit Union Association's
Web site.

Mayor votes to release trust money


By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.comr


The Key West City
Commission unanimously voted
to give the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust $455,724
in developer and administrative
fees, but only after fiery debate
with the mayor, who finally
voted for the funding.
The nonprofit trust manages
properties in Bahama Village,
sponsors programs on preserving
Conch culture and lobbies to pre-
vent gentrification of the historic
neighborhood.
Mayor Morgan McPherson, a
long-time critic of the trust, heard
numerous Bahama Village resi-
dents and supporters speak favor-
ably about the organization
Tuesday night.
McPherson voted to approve
the money. Residents attending
the meeting applauded the
mayor's unexpected support.
McPherson said he wants the
money to bring the group "into
the 21st Century."
Land Trust Deputy Director
Wheeler Winstead said the non-
profit hasn't received a dollar
from the city to cover administra-
tive and business expenses since
a $2.5 million city grant in 2001.


The trust has been under
scrutiny by city officials for past
bookkeeping practices. Trust
staffers told commissioners
they've been working with a
skeletal crew and renting out
apartments so cheap that the trust
constantly loses money.
Winstead said that's why utility
payments have been delayed and
only two units are insured.
Commissioners called the
$455,724 a "Band-Aid," adding
they hope it would get the group
out of debt and back on track to
run more efficiently.
The funding comes in two
separate requests, $102,306 to
rehabilitate units in Bahama
Village, and another $353,418 in
developer fees.
The money will come from
Bahama Village's tax-increment
financing pool, a special property
tax set aside for neighborhoods
in need of infrastructure
improvements and redevelop-
ment.
With about $1.2 million in the
pool for Bahama Village, the
trust allocates about $250,000 to
police services each year, city
Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg said.


Commission renews

consultant contract


Keynoter Staff


The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday
approved a two-year contract for
housing -consultant Jeffrey
Sharkey of Capital Alliance
Group, a company paid to assess
city housing needs.
The new deal will pay
Sharkey $175 hourly while other
Capitol Alliance staff receive a
total of $100 an hour. Those rates
applied to the group's previous
one-year contract.
Also Tuesday night:
A new Citizen Review
Board member was voted in. He
replaces Adare Fritz.
Kevin Collins, a 57-year-old
Wesley House Family Services
employee, received more votes
than applicant Virginia Alto-
Bello and took the seat.
The panel, hears complaints,


citizens make against the Key
West Police Department and
makes determinations on those
complaints to the Police
Department.
+ The commission approved
transferring excess fill from the
old Hawk missile site off South
Roosevelt Boulevard near Key
West International Airport, and
fill from other environmental
mitigation projects, to the
Monroe County School District.
The district will use it to build a
soccer field at Poinciana
Elementary School.
Tabled a second vote on
putting a referendum on the Nov.
4 ballot asking if the city should
acquire Higgs Beach from
Monroe County. Mayor Morgan
McPherson said there are finan-
cial issues to work out ,


The tax-incremental fund can
be used for redevelopment plan-
ning expenses, acquisition of
property, clearance of redevelop-
ment areas, repayment of bonds
and debt, affordable housing
development and community
policing.
"They've actually brought
affordable housing to Key West,"
said John Jones, former assistant
city manager. "I think Bahama
Village is a main part of Key


West and I think it should stay a
major part of Key West."
Resident Tom Milone remind-
ed the commission that Key West
is losing its working-age resi-
dents.
"You need future generations
here," Jethon Williams, a 32-
year-old multimedia specialist
for Monroe County, told the
commission. Williams said he's
lived in a trust unit for four years.
Land Trust Executive Director


Norma Jean Sawyer said the non-
profit has supplied "housing for
47 families and individuals."
Commissioner Bill Verge
expressed concern that the neigh-
borhood's churches are badly
deteriorated and at the same time,
the nonprofit is negotiating a 99-
year lease for 6.6 acres on the
Trumani Waterfront property to
develop a community of afford-
able units, shops and studios.

Suspended officer fired, as expected


Neary found

about claims
By KYLE TEAL

As expected, suspended
Key West police officer
Thomas Neary was fired
Wednesday for telling people


he was an undercover federal
agent investigating corruption
in the Police Department and
looking into possible terrorist
attacks.
The department put Neary
on paid administrative leave
Oct. 26 after FBI Special
Agent Kevin White inter-
viewed him about the com-
plaints. Interim Police Chief


Donie Lee recommended fir-
ing Neary in May, but Lee was
waiting for consent from City
Attorney Shawn Smith to draft
a termination letter.
Wednesday, Lee sent the
nine-page letter highlighting
the department's allegations
against Neary and his uncoop-

Sauer wrote his finding of
facts on the Neary case, stating
"there is a preponderance of
evidence that officer Thomas
Neary did represent himself
falsely as: an agent, associate,
representative or operative of
the federal government...."
Sauer's findings also stated
that Neary, a Big Pine Key res-
ident, convinced fellow and
former officers and a supervi-
sor that "this information was
to be kept confidential
between him and the witness
officers."
For those reasons and oth-
ers, Neary's behavior was
deemed "unbecoming con-
duct" but not "unlawful con-
duct."
The letter also states that
Neary's attorney, Michael
Barnes, sent a list of "an addi-
tional 112 witnesses that he
now wanted to be interviewed,
including Officer Neary."
Barnes has refused to discuss
the case with the Keynoter.
The Neary investigation
even involved bugging Lt.
Kathleen Ream's office to
record conversations she had
with him. Transcripts from the
bugging show some statements
that indicate Neary told Ream
he and his wife are federal
agents. Barnes has questioned
the validity of those tran-


scripts, saying the department
altered them.
Some of the alleged state-
ments in the investigative sum-
mary have Neary talking about
high-ranking law enforcement
officers and city officials.
In a casual conversation
before the investigation began,
"Officer Neary told [detective
Bradley Lariz] that he had
[City Commissioner Mark
Rossi's] plane and house
bugged and that they were
watching him. He also told
Lariz that he was watching and
doing an investigation on Sgt.
Robert Allen."
It's not clear what he was
inferring with Rossi, but with
Allen, he allegedly accused the
sergeant of transporting drugs
to Cuba in a police boat.
"It's just incredible." Rossi
said. "It's just incredible alle-
gations."
Neary and Barnes didn't
show up for Neary's predeter-
mination hearing last week and
refused to participate when
they attended a scheduled
interview for the Internal
Affairs investigation in May.
The city's investigation fol-
lowed one conducted by the
FBI into the same claims. The
FBI said the evidence against
Neary didn't rise to the level of
criminal.

Man sharpens knife,
stabs self by accident

A Key West man told police
he accidentally stabbed himself
in the chest, causing a serious
cut, about 2:30 a.m. June 14.
A police report states the
Poinciana Trailer Park resident
told police he was sitting in a
chair sharpening his knife when
he "rolled backwards on the chair
and accidentally stabbed himself
in the chest." The wound was
half an inch long.
The report says the man had
been drinking and that he origi-
nally "did not think the injury
was that bad." He unsuccessfully
tried to stop the bleeding with
pressure and ice cubes but then
drove himself to Lower Keys
Medical Center around 6 a.m.
The report says there were
large pools of blood' in his 'house


and truck.

Bale of cocaine
found at marina

It used to be commonplace in
the Keys, but now it's pretty rare:
Bales of cocaine washing ashore.
But it happened Wednesday,
when a package of the drug
washed up at the Whale Harbor
Marina in Islamorada. It weighed
about a kilogram and was worth
about $15,000 on the street, says
Becky Herrin, spokeswoman for
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
She.says an employee at a Jet
Ski rental business found it
wrapped in plastic and sealed
with duct tape. He called the
Sheriff's Office.
The bale will be destroyed.

I needed them.
Fishermen's Hospital was great about keeping my family and friends
informed while I was being treated in the ER.
-The staff was very concerned about my pain level. Always checking

DCF: Fewer kids abused


30 removed
from Keys
homes this year
By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

The May report for the
Department of Children and
Families shows an overall
decrease in the number of chil-
dren being abused by their par-
ents or guardians in Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties.
Specifically, it shows a decline
in the number of children being
taken away from abusive house-
holds.
Between January and May of
2007,53 kids were removed from
their households in Monroe
County, according to Alan
Abramowitz, director of DCF's
southern region, which takes in
Miami-Dade and Monroe coun-
ties. Between January and May
this year, 30 were removed.
"This clearly represents the
fact that we are working with
families as partners," Abramowitz


said. "One indicator that's inter-
esting is when a child goes [back]
home after they get removed, the
child will rarely come back into
care. We're the best in the state."
The rate of re-abuse is less
than 1 percent while DCF servic-
es are in place; the statewide goal
is 5 percent.
"This means our foster par-
ents, group homes, shelters and
relatives are keeping children
safe while we engage the family,"
Abramowitz said.
DCF services include investi-
gations of families reported to be
abusive, and linking families and
children with programs dealing
with mental, physical and emo-
tional problems. DCF also con-
nects appropriate child care to
kids who are removed from their
households.
Abramowitz said he's proud
of the report's numbers, empha-
sizing that DCF's southern region
surpassed all of its goals but one.
The report states DCF representa-
tives saw 99.65 percent of chil-
dren under supervision. The goal


1 (305) 240-0511


is to see 100 percent of the chil-
dren on a monthly basis.
Flora Beal, communications
director for the southern region,
said this particular goal is often
unattainable but that DCF needs
to strive to reach it.
"Sometimes that .4 percent, if
we know there's a child that's out
of town on vacation with foster
parents, which sometimes hap-
pens, or out of the country or at
summer camp, that could affect
that you can't see them," Beal
said. "Sometimes it's explicable
and we know-who they are and
why they haven't been seen. It's
the goal that needs to be there
because that's what we need to
strive for to ensure our children
are safe."

Sodomy charge lodged
against Key West man

A Key West man has been
charged with sodomy for
allegedly forcing himself on
another man Tuesday.
Police arrested Mark Fields,
51, on the felony at the Stadium
Mobile Home Park.
A report says officers were
originally called because Fields
locked the alleged victim and
his girlfriend, Californians who
rent from Fields, out of his trail-
er following the reported
assault.
The renter told police that
about 5 a.m., Fields was drunk,
walked into his room and began
giving him oral sex. The renter
and his girlfriend were sleeping
in separate rooms because she
has bronchitis.
The alleged victim told
police he thought his girlfriend
was the one who came into the
room, then realized it was
Fields. He then ran to his girl-
friend's room and shortly later
took a shower.
He told police he didn't ini-
tially call them about the alleged
assault because he "freaked out
and needed time to think."

Insurance bill appears dead


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A federal move to help com-
mercial fishermen acquire health
insurance may be running out of
time in Congress.
"Given where we are now on
the calendar, it's going to be
tough to get something through,"
said Peter Kovar, chief of staff to
U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-
Mass.), the bill's primary sponsor.
"Regardless of how far we get
in this session," Kovar said, "the
congressman has every intention
of bringing it back next year."'
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen, who represents the
Keys, signed on as one of 20 co-
sponsors to House Bill 5404, the
Commercial Fishing Industry
Health Care Coverage Act.
The bill would charge the fed-
eral Health Resources and
Services Administration with
working with states that have a
commercial fishing industry to
establish health insurance pro-
grams.
Costs of $50 million in startup
funding over the next five years
are suggested.
"I know many fishermen in
my district that do not have health
insurance for themselves or their
relatives," Ros-Lehtinen said in a
prepared statement. "This legisla-
tion will remedy that but we can't
stop there, as this industry is hurt-
ing and it needs our help."
The cong'ression'al, --i


ends before the general election
in November. Congress also will
break for July 4 and much of
August.
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D.-Mass)
has sponsored a companion bill
in the Senate.
But both bills have stalled in
committee and might not reach
the full House or Senate before
the session ends.
"Health insurance is a big-time
problem here," said Jeff Cramer, a
longtime Grassy Key commercial
fisherman. "Most of the guys
don't have it unless they can get it
through their wife's job."
The Massachusetts congress-
men took the lead in crafting the
legislation because of their state's
resident population of commercial
fishermen and the success of a
similar project, the Massachusetts
Fishing Partnership, launched at
the state level.
"That program has helped a
substantial number of fisher-
men," Kovar said. "It may not be
identical but there is a program to
use as a model."
He noted, "There are some
unique aspects of commercial
fishing which makes it difficult to
obtain health insurance. Income
can be irregular, people move
around to different jobs, and the


work itself can be hazardous.
For decades, the federal gov-
ernment oversaw a program that
helped the commercial fishing
industry get health insurance but
that effort ended in the early
1980s.

For sale: Co-op building


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative is looking to sell its
administrative building in
Tavernier before moving all of
its Upper Keys operations into a
new building across the street.
The co-op posted an adver-
tisement in local newspapers last
week listing the building and
property, at mile marker 91.5
oceanside, for $2 million.
The property has been the site
of the co-op's administrative
headquarters since 1950, and
spokeswoman Rebecca Newman
said selling wasn't the only
option considered by the board
of directors.
"They thought about making
it staff housing or if it could be
leased or rented," Newman said.
"None of those options were
economically feasible, and it
was decided it was in the best
interest of the membership to
sell it and recover the capital."
The building is listed as
10,240 square feet. The property
is listed as 43,763 square feet on
more than 13 lots with 160 feet
of U.S. 1 frontage.
Newman said co-op Chief
Executive Officer Scott
Newberry, who is listed on the
ad, has received "some interest"
in the property.
The building was originally
built as a 40- by 60-foot office to
handle the co-op's 1,000 cus-
tomer accounts, Newman said.
The member-owned utility now
handles 31,000 accounts from

to promote the new partner-
ship. Each business will retain
its separate phone numbers:
296-9095 for The TV Center,
296-9099 for Audio Video in
Paradise, and 292-1860 for the
Electronic Clinic.
Store hours are 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday .through Friday
and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Newman said any sale would
have to be contingent on co-op
staff remaining in the office until
the new 62,000-square-foot
building is constructed on the
bay side of U.S. 1.


Construction began on the
new building in December 2007
and is expected to be complete
by February 2009. Overholt
Construction Corp. was chosen
for the $13.7 million project.

liability is $35,000 and Joe said
that's all they were asking for the
business.
"They're spooked because the
tourism is way down. I don't
know how bad they wanted it and
now we're stuck because we let
the inventory get down," he said.
"It's just a shame because it's
such a good location and it's a
turnkey operation."
Mamajoe's features a retail
shop and a repair shop Joe said is
stocked with numerous specialty
tools necessary to work on
Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Most of it will be sold off to
cover their liability, he said.
Rickard said he and M.J.
passed on an opportunity to sign
a three-year lease extension
because they didn't want to be
locked in without having the
business sold.


"We had about 30 or 40 peo-
ple call about the shop.
Unfortunately most of them are
from out of state and don't under-
stand about living down here," he
said.
If the business is sold, the new
owner will only be guaranteed a
one-year lease in case an offer for
the property comes in.
"It's a long ways from ever
being sold, but they have to pro-
tect themselves. They don't want
to have a big lease," he said.
The property is owned by the
estate of Joseph Ardolino, which
forced Overseas Liquor &
Lounge to close its doors in
February when owners Roy and
Beverly Dickens were unable to
come up with a $143,000 balloon
payment on a private loan from
Ardolino. The bar, which is adja-
cent to Mamajoe's, was the Keys'
oldest continuously operating
watering hole. It has been vacant
since March.

Couple gets congrats from queen


Elizabeth II
sends her best
from Buckingham
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Not many couples are lucky
enough to be married 60 years -
even fewer get a letter from the
queen of England commemorat-
ing the milestone. .
For British natives and
Marathon residents Michael and
Joyce Hogarth, the letter was a
pleasant and welcome surprise.
"My son came over for a holi-
day and he swiped my marriage
certificate and sent it up to
Buckingham Palace," Joyce said.
"I find the Americans are very
fascinated with it. I took it to the
bridge club and they all looked at
it and thought it was very splen-
did."
British natives receive a card
.on their 100th and 105th birth-
days and every year after, as well
as their 60th, 65th, 70th and every
wedding anniversary thereafter.
The card contains. personalized
message and a facsimile signa-


ture of Queen Elizabeth II.
According to the British Royal
Family's Web site, www.royal
.gov.uk, congratulatory messages
marking 100th birthdays and 60th
wedding anniversaries have been
sent out by the Anniversaries
Office at Buckingham Palace
since 1917.
Joyce Hogarth had the oppor--
tunity to meet Princess Elizabeth
as a child, presenting her with a
bouquet of flowers at a charity
garden party when she was just 7
years old.
"She wasn't royal at all then,"
Joyce joked. "And my mother
taught her as a debutante to curt-
sy."
Joyce, 91, said she 'and

Groups combine forces for dive safety


Specifically,
their concern
is mini-season
Keynoter Staff


It's all about lobster the last
Wednesday and Thursday of July
- the lobster mini, or sport, sea-
son. And for the second consecu-
tive year, it's all about safety for a
variety of groups hoping no one
dies during the frenzied search
for the delectable crustaceans.
During mini-season 2006,
three people died in the Keys
while diving for lobster during
the two days. The following year,
four did.
That body count led to the for-
mation of the Florida Keys Safe
Diving Initiative, a consortium
whose sole goal is ensuring safe-
ty during mini-season.
The interests are varied the
U.S. Coast Guard and its auxil-
iary flotillas, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, Fishermen's Hospital,
Lower Keys Medical Center,
Monroe County Sheriff's Office,
Key West Police Department,


Keys Association of Dive
Operators, the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary and
Florida Keys Community
College.
Together, they formed the
Florida Keys Safe Diving
Initiative and one of the most
comprehensive Web sites for dive
and scuba safety, www
.divealive.org. The site also
contains exhaustive information
on the mini-season rules, which
are strict and strictly enforced.
And they all came together for
a big safety and education fair,
the Lobster Rodeo and Dive
Safety Expo', to give divers,
snorkelers and boaters the knowl-
edge they need before they get
out on and in.- the water.
Last year, it was at Florida

Stock Island. This year, it's
planned for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. July
27 on Knights Key, on the

By MARGARET MENGE

On June 25, the one-year-
old SODU Gallery at 1100
Duval will open an exhibit of
what people sometimes call
"outsider art." A large
abstract painting in blues and
purples will fill the front win-
dow, and a sculpture of many
hands reaching up out of the
depths will stand as the cen-
terpiece inside. These are the
works of the artists in the
ReMARCable Arts program at
the Monroe Association of
Remarkable Citizens in Key
West. They are very fortunate,
these artists. They get to
come, every day, to the gar-
den center at the MARC
house where they sit out on
picnic tables under a canopy,
next to tables piled with
plants. And they get to work
with Doug Morris, program
coordinator, who helps coax
some remarkable pieces out
of these sometimes reluctant
creators.
Norma, a shy black
woman, worked slowly with a
marker on Monday, just bare-
ly guiding it as it trailed
down a piece of paper on the
table in front of her. She
looked up and smiled slowly,
but didn't respond to inquiries
about her art. "Norma's art
appears on the Arts Council
brochure now," says Morris.

"She's what's commonly
know as an Art Star."
Most of the adults in the
ReMARCable Arts program
live in group homes in Key
West. A few are in supported
living, and some live with
their families. They are paid
by MARC to attend art class-
es in the morning or after-
noon and produce works that
can then be sold. Morris is a
teacher and also a curator,
deciding what to frame and
what to mat, and how to price
everything. Some of the
biggest pieces in the SODU
show will go for $350 or
$400, with small, matted
pieces priced well under $100
each.
The student artists were
hard at work finishing pieces
to go into the show last week.
They're usually working from
photographs or other media,
says Morris. A man in a hat
named Tristan was using col-
ored pencils to finish a draw-
ing of Pepe's Cafe. He is bent
over his work, with a pencil
in hand going over the letter-
ing on a sign.
The June 25 show at the
SODU Gallery won't be the
first time that MARC art has
been on exhibit in Key West.
In April, all four galleries at
the East Martello Museum
were taken up with a MARC
exhibit, and a number of
pieces sold. A couple of
pieces that appeared in that
show will be returning on
Wednesday including a stun-
ning painting of Davy Jones


from "Pirates of the
Caribbean" and Bathing
Beauties, showing stick fig-
ures suspended in air, as
drawn from an old photo-
graph of women in full-cover
bathing suits.

Never know what you'll see at Mallory


It's not our
little secret
anymore
The New York Times ran a
June 15 story on Reid
Fierheller-Conklin, a Key
West High School student who
juggles fire at Mallory Square.
The article gives a concise histo-
ry of the Sunset Celebration
based on an interview with
Sunset icon wirewalker Will
Soto.
Fierheller-Conklin learned
juggling in Jimmy Wray's mid-
dle school class. "I started with
three balls, four balls, then clubs,
then knives, then I tried to juggle
the torches," he told the New
York Times.
His mentors at Mallory
include Soto and tumbler John
"Dr. Juice" Allicock.
His tip pitch: "If you throw in
a couple bucks tonight, I'll go
home happy. If you throw in a
five or a 10, it will mean the
world to me and it will go
toward my college education.
And if you throw in a 20, heck, I
won't need to go to college."
He's aiming to study zoology
and performance at Florida
State.

I wonder how they'll
like it here...

Revealed! Secret swim spots of locals


Summer is sweet
if you know
where to go
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
There are plenty of places
up and down the Keys to
dive off into the water
when it gets too hot on the rock.
But there are just a handful of
really special places where locals
go when they want to cool off
and relax. They're special
because of the setting, and
because of the general mood.
You can be who you are here,
and not worry about having your
cage shaken. You can bring a
book, or go with a friend. And
best of all, they're free.

trainer off the hood of his pick-
up. A fiery red sun just dropped
over there, across the water, and
Terry's dog is resting on the
ground after having rooted
around in the mangroves for the
last fifteen minutes. "You live
your whole life for that, those
few moments of pleasure," he
says.
To know of Ramrod Park, to
swim the channel as the sun is
dropping over the gulf, to have
this as a refuge, a hang-out spot,
is to be very lucky in this life.
Ramrod Park was just made
into a county park last year, after
some homeowners down the
road complained about kids
hanging out at night. It's now an
undeveloped park, with just one
small sign with posted hours
(7:30 a.m. to sunset) and
announcing "no alcohol
allowed." The park, previously
known as just the Ramrod Key
swimming hole, is a simple,
wide-open area at the end of a
road, on the gulf. The pavement.

gravel and park around the chan-
nel. It's the perfect lap pool -
slightly cool and deep but you
can also hang out on the rock
ledges, fish from the side, or

throw sticks to your dog.
Where the channel meets the
gulf, about 150 feet out, there's a
sort of peninsula where the
locals park and hang out by their
trucks. It can be a party scene,
with a car stereo playing music
and everybody in the water with
a beer in one hand. Or you might
be the only one there. It's nice
both ways.
Dante's Restaurant
& Raw Bar
Where At Conch Harbor
Marina, on Caroline Street in
Key West (turn off White Street
and park in the municipal park-
ing garage).
What Eat lunch, have a drink,
swim, take meetings poolside!
When Pool's open 11 a.m.
until a half hour before sunset.
No lifeguard
Ok, you're supposed to only
use the pool if you're eating at
the restaurant, or using the mari-
na, but a waitress says she used
to come here all the time to use
the pool before she worked here,
and no one ever said anything.
The pool at Dante's is large
and fairly shallow, with a sword-
fish in the middle spouting water
and water falling over rocks at
the far end. There's a nice mix of
people here on a Monday after-
noon in summer. Soccer moms
lounge at pool's edge while dads
throw little girls in the water;
couples take in the sun on
lounge chairs on the far side; and
teenage girls are lined up with
their legs dangling in the water.
"This is our backyard, basi-
cally," says Bryan Eberly, who
was there with his wife Christina
and their two kids. They'd come
down from Broward County for
a four-day weekend in Key West
and were staying at the Hyatt.
But they came to Dante's, he
said, for the food. And for the
waterfall. The kids are wild
about it.
If you're walking around Key
West and feeling wilty (and if
you happen to have a swimsuit
on you) you can stop by Dante's
and get some refreshment. Enter
from the Caroline Street side -
go up the steps and change into
your suit in the bathrooms that
lead off the top pavilion. Open
the gate and go down to the pool
and set up at one of the picnic
tables. Meet your friends here to
watch the game on the week-

The Eberlys live in Broward but consider the Keys their "backyard."

ends. It's not a bad way to spend
a summer's day.

Martin Luther King

Where 300 Catherine St., on
the comer of Catherine and
Thomas, two blocks off Duval
Street in Key West.
What Swim, read a book, gaze
out at the Atlantic Ocean.
When Pool's open Monday-
Saturday. Open swim is 11 a.m.
to 5:45 p.m. Lap swim is 9-11
a.m. Mon-Thurs. and 10-11 a.m.
Friday and Saturday.
No music, no food, no drinks

When she hears that the staff
at the tourist information booth
just three blocks away has no
idea that this pool is here, Lee
Thompson, the pool manager, is
unmoved. "That's OK," she
says. "We don't really care. We
allow tourists, but they have to
follow our rules."

of Key West near the Atlantic
Ocean. There are a lot of rules
here no food, no drinks (except
water) no radios, no suntan oil,
and on and on and on. And the
result, you'll find, is serenity.
You can get some thinking done
here, or clean your mind of all
thought, depending on your pref-
erence. You can stand at pool's
edge and gaze out at a long strip
of Atlantic Ocean a few hundred'


feet away, shimmering in the
sun. The park, Thompson says,
used to run all the way to the
Atlantic Ocean, until the Cuban
Missile Crisis when the Navy
came in and built some buildings
here. But there is no need for
tears. This is a special place. "I
don't mean to say it's not for
,tourists," says Thompson. "But
it's just the local people need'
something." Yes, we do.'

"When Cathy & I shared our dream for a "Middle Keys Paradise", the other banks only
asked about dollars & spreadsheets. First State Bank asked another question...

"What is your dream?"

Only a locally owned bank would ask that important question...so we moved our
loans and banking business to the only bank that truly cares- First State Bank of the
Florida Keys.
First State's local knowledge, professionalism, fair play & old fashioned customer
service are helping us realize our dream for a middle of the Keys Paradise. Plus, their
commitment to the customer and community, and their willingness to help the little
guy...mean they really care."
