ACLU:



Election



law flawed


Marathon limits
campaign signs
on private land
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmncanhih '.'ke. ioter.comr

The American Civil Liberties
Union of Florida says a Marathon
ordinance placing restrictions on
political signs on private property
is unconstitutional.
The ACLU also says similar
laws are routinely struck down
across the country.
The City Council voted
Tuesday to strictly enforce a
2007 ordinance saying political
signs can be put up 45 days prior


to an election but only for candi-
dates appearing on the ballot.
City Manager Clyde Burnett told
the council some candidates run-
ning in the -November election
who are not in the primary
already have signs posted around
the city.
"I met with Michael Storm
[Wednesday] morning and they
were going to make contact with
all those people and give them
until Monday to get their signs
down," Burnett said of the city's
Code Department supervisor.
"I would say if the city is try-
ing to enforce this against private

Suspect claims self defense


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A Key Largo man charged
with running over two motorcy-
clists on U.S. 1 in July says it was
self-defense.
"I had no choice. They were
trying to kill me," Antonio
Albanes, 49, told the Keynoter. "I
ran for my life."
A hearing scheduled this week
in the hit-and-run case lodged
against Albanes was continued
until Sept. 2 before Circuit Court
Judge Luis Garcia.
The two men injured in the
1:50 a.m. July 12 crash James
Roti, 31, of Hollywood and
Steven Christianson, 28, of West
Palm Beach could not be
reached.
Both men, riding separate
Harley Davidson motorcycles,
suffered "serious bodily injury"
and were flown to mainland hos-
pitals, Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Gary Dunick wrote in
his report.
Three weeks later, Roti was
released Aug. 2 from Jackson
Memorial Hospital, hospital staff
said. Christianson's condition
could.not be determined.


A third motorcyclist, Paul
Gagliardo of Coral Springs, told
officers he was riding south on
U.S. 1 behind his two compan-
ions when Albanes, driving a sil-
ver Chevrolet van, came up from
behind near mile marker 103.
Gagliardo said he swerved out
of the way but the van struck
Roti's and Christianson's motor-
cycles.
The incident followed a fracas
at the Caribbean Club bar.
Witnesses there said the three
motorcyclists and Albanes
"exchanged. wards;" according to
a Monroe -County Sheriff's
Office report.
There was some pushing and
Albanes reportedly grabbed a
pool cue, witnesses told officers.
The fight continued. outside.
"One the bikers pulled out a
gun," a sheriff's deputy quoted a
witness.
There was no indication what
started the argument. Albanes
said he was "beat up" but did not
know why.
Roti, Christianson and
Gagliardo left the bar. No one
could tell officers whether
Albanes left before or after the


motorcyclists.
According to Albanes, the
motorcyclists, who he believes to
be members .of a motorcycle
club, tried to cut him off.
No other account referenced
in the court file at the Plantation
Key Government Center offers a
similar version of the incident.
Deputy Kyle Page described
finding "bike parts all over the
road." Both motorcycles were
listed as total losses.
Albanes drove about a half-
mile farther down the highway,
pulling off onto George Street. He
parked and walked to a nearby
convenience store to call his wife.
Albanes later told Dunick he
"started driving home to flee the
men," according to the FHP
report.
After a sobriety test and blood
tests, Albanes was charged with
two counts of driving under the
influence involving serious
injury, two counts of DUI involv-
ing property damage, and leaving
the scene of an accident involv-
ing injury.
He also was cited for violating
driver's license restrictions that
limited him to driving for busi-
ness only. That restriction stems
from a 2007 DUI case.

But Mayor Pete Worthington
said even with its faults, the
ordinance is clear.
"Myself, like all other candi-
dates, was given a copy of the

which states we can put up signs

don't want to have political
signs from one end of the town

Worthington said. He's one of
eight candidates seeking elec-
tion to three at-large seats on the
council in November.
Burnett said residents with
political signs in their yards will
face Code Department fines,
while signs in the city right of

candidates don't do so. He said
the candidates will not face
fines.

Case still active


SOTO / From 1.

Judge Wayne Miller, agents with
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement 'and
Broward Sheriff's Office
searched Soto's Harriet. Avenue
house with his consent on Sept.
26, 2006, and found 97 grams, or
3.5 ounces, of marijuana. They
also reportedly found cocaine in
Soto's son's bedroom, four bongs
and numerous "ash trays contain-
ing buds from the marijuana cig-
arettes."
The big stash was found
inside an entertainment center,
the warrant says. Also reportedly
seized were a scale and a "cut-
ter."
Asked( wh i.the warrant was
issued and the arrest was made so,
long after the search nearly


two years FDLE spokes-
woman Heather Smith said
Friday, "That was an investiga-
tive decision. This is part of a
case that is still active.'
. It's also unclear why
Broward, state and federal agents
were involved, though that
would indicate the investigation
was part of the federal High
Intensity Drug Trafficking Area
program, which has an office in
Marathon and comprises numer-
ous agencies from within and
outside Monroe.
An arrest affidavit says the
agents were tipped to Soto for his
"knowledge about the smuggling
activities several months ago
involving the individuals on
board a sailboat."
Soto has been featured in
tourisri .do6nim icials promoting
the Keys and in numerous news-
paper stories across the nation.

BETSEY / From 1

from people who want to know,"
said Judy Hull, executive director-
of the Islamorada Chamber of
Commerce.
Vellanti knows where Betsey
is but isn't saying. The lobster
wouldn't want fans to see her in
her present condition, he said.
"The lady is indisposed and
not properly attired for photo-
graphs," said Vellanti, politely
spuming a request to visit the
lobster.
But "it's still here in the
Keys," he said.
Artist Richard Blaze, who cre-
ated the artwork of fiberglass and
steel, has been invited to oversee
its refurbishment for a new
unveiling.


Marathon ballot closes
with eight candidates

Eight candidates will be on
the ballot for the Marathon City
Council election in November.
Candidate qualifying ended
Tuesday for the election, being
held in November for the first
time this year. Three seats are up
on the five-member council.
Incumbents Pete Worthington
and Marilyn Tempest will be


"It will have a new debut,"
Vellanti said.
Betsey helped draw visitors to
Treasure Village when the
Plantation Key landmark was a
retail shopping center.
Since Treasure Village con-
verted to a Montessori school,
Betsey occupied needed space.
Visitors could still take pictures
of the world-renowned -lobster,
but they were tolerated rather
than coveted.
That should change at
Betsey's new home which,
like the lobster's current location,
remains undisclosed.
Betsey co-owners Mia and
Dennis Berry haven't finalized
plans, said Vellanti, Mia's father.
"There's a very strong possi-
bility that it will remain in the
Keys," he said. "We love the

Voting is at large, so the three

held in March but voters changed
the city charter to allow the
municipal election to take place
the same day as county, state and
federal elections.

Betsey went up for sale after
Treasure Village became a
school. Asking price: $400,000.
The lobster was created on
Marathon's Coco Plum by artist
Richard Blaze.
Blaze's main line was build-
ing fiberglass dinosaurs for
miniature golf courses. He was
commissioned to build the lob-
ster for a restaurant and labored
to make sure every detail was
accurate.
But by the time the five-year
construction was complex, the
restaurant had folded.
The Treasure Village owners
then adopted Betsey.."It's been
there at least a dozen years,"
Vellanti said.
"It's still very popular, and the
only work of art like it in the
world," he said. "It's an exact
replica of a Florida lobster, down
to every little bump."
Except Betsey stands three
stories tall.
The Roadside Attractions
Internet site lists Betsey.as the
largest crustacean sculpture in
America that isn't inflatable.

Keys Opinion


Free speech trumps

annoyance of signs

Marathon code trumps the U.S. Constitution. Or so some
officials believe.when it comes to the city's ordinance regulat-
ing campaign signs.
The city has a rule that such signs can be erected no earlier
than 45 days before an election. But there's also a little some-
thing called free speech.
If you drive through the Middle Keys, you'll see signs for
Ken Davis, Dixie Spehar and others who face opposition in the
Aug. 26 primary. You'll also see signs for Heather Carruthers,
who's running for County Commission but isn't on the primary
ballot, only the Nov. 4 ballot.
The city says she and other candidates not on the primary bal-
lot can't have signs displayed yet not even on private prop-
erty. That affects her and everyone else on the fall ballot.
Presumably, the Democrat Carruthers has placed her signs
out now so she gets the same name recognition as Sonny
McCoy and Carlos Rojas, Republicans facing each other Aug.
26. In November, she faces the winner between those two.
City Manager Clyde Burnett says that come Monday, anyone
who has a sign up, even on private property, hawking a candi-
date in the November election can expect a visit from Code
Enforcement.
The American Civil Liberties Union, along with this newspa-
per, has a problem with that.
"I would say if the city is trying to enforce this against pri-
vate property owners, they're likely going to get sued and like-
ly going to get the ordinance struck down," Randall Marshall,
legal director of the ACLU of Florida, told our Middle Keys
reporter, Ryan McCarthy.
Indeed, even the U.S. Supreme court recognizes that, as the
ACLU told the city of Clermont last year in challenging a sign
law, "the law is clear that the display of political signs consti-
tutes pure speech that is protected by the First Amendment."
The ACLU further went on to cite a case in which the Supreme
Court "held that the First Amendment has its fullest and most
urgent application to speech uttered during a campaign for
political officer."
Speech comes in many forms including signs. And they
can be ugly.
The intent of Marathon's law is fine keep the city as free
as possible from sign pollution. Those who have witnessed past
elections in Marathon know there's a greater proliferation of
signs hawking candidates than the proliferation of RVs on
U.S. 1 come wintertime.
But the Constitution cannot be shunted aside to get rid of that
temporary annoyance.

Keep- the pressure on those illegally lobstering


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association, I would like to
extend our thanks and appreciation to all
those agencies (Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary) involved in the
enforcement action against a local unlawful
lobster-fishing operation in the Lower Keys.
For decades, casita/lobstet condo divers
have unfairly taken advantage of the public's
share of lobster. Since the early 1990s, this
illegal fishing effort has increased tenfold.
Aside from being illegal, casita fishing vio-
lates the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary regulations and destroys natural
resources. It's frustrating for legal fishermen
to pay their fees and expenses to then see
casita divers steal from the public and provide


nothing to protect the resource.
Although the recent bust was on a large-
scale operation, there are many smaller-scale
operations that continue to illegally
"capture/sell marine resources in Monroe
County. While this case is sure to deter other
illegal operations, our organization encour-
ages state and federal law enforcement to
keep as much pressure on illegal fishing as is
possible. Professional fishermen will support
law enforcement's efforts in any way we can.
Together, we can make a difference protecting
Monroe County's valuable marine resources.

Keep the big cop cars on patrol


EDITOR:
I have lived on Little Torch Key full-time
for 21 years and have some comments that
voters should think about for our new sheriff.
Replacing the large, gas-guzzling Fords is
not a good idea. There are millions of them
and they are used in almost every police
department in the country. Why? They are
much safer than smaller cars. They are fast
when speed is needed. They are the largest
American-made sedans you can buy, and are
extremely reliable since so many have been
produced. Finally, they are a bargain when
compared to the cost of the new fuel-effi-
cient, smaller-model cars.
The way to cut costs is to cut down the
mileage by using radar in locations where the


speed demons open up. I know that the sheriff
doesn't want to offend the tourists by giving
out a lot of speeding tickets, but the posted
speed limits are there because U.S. 1 is a very
dangerous road. The state troopers do a good
job with their limited resources. The new
sheriff can also do a good job while cutting
down his or her'bud'get. The candidates
should also evaluate the legal fees that are
presently incurred by the Sheriff's Office.
Incidentally, I have not had personal expe-
rience of nor seen any crime in the neighbor-
hood where I have lived for 21 years, and I
sure don't want to get taxed for the preven-
tion of crime in Marathon and Key West.

Utility causes discomfort to animals for no reason


,EDITOR:
I am a volunteer for Stand Up for Animals
and spend Fridays at the Big Pine Key Animal
Shelter.
On a recent Friday I was shocked and disap-
pointed to see that Keys Energy Services, which
leases the building to the county for the animal
shelter, had cut down all the shade trees behind
the building that provided shade for the animals'
from the hot morning sun. The area in the rear
of the building is now subjected to temperatures
at least 20 degrees hotter than before (about 100
degrees).
When the crew started cutting the trees,
Leeann Mathews, who works at the shelter,
begged them to stop. After contacting their
supervisor, they continued to cut everything
down. Many of the trees were seagrape and
green buttonwood, native to the Keys.
I have contacted several individuals and was
told that trees could be replanted. Doesn't any-
one have any common sense or what? Why not
communicate and leave the existing trees?
Every organization is tight on money, including
the animal shelter. It should not be at the shel-,
ter's expense to replace the trees. This is a no-


brainer.
Using common sense and communication is
the answer. These animals should not suffer due
to human stupidity. To me, it's animal cruelty.

Our canals are no place
to dump animal droppings


EDITOR:
It was one of those jump-off-
the-dock-into-the-clear-canal
days. Oops, then I saw a vacation
visitor shoveling dog waste into
the water.
I watched as approximately
two weeks of feces from three
large dogs bobbed down to the
end of the canal to remain by my
dock. Phooey. In checking with
the Marathon Planning
Department and the City of
Marathon Marina, I found there
is no statute specifically relating
to the issue of animal/pet waste
going into our bays, our canals or
our ocean. No wonder our beach-
es and canals end up polluted
with a high concentration of bac-
teria from animal waste. There is


no law against such polluting.
I'm not a rules maker, nor am
I telling anyone what to do or not
to do. I only point out that unless
there is a specific law that goes
beyond it being illegal to dump a
container of materials in the
water, it would be fine to have a
nice pile of cat sand by the canal
edge that could be shoveled from
time to time. And you won't have
to worry about bagging up Fido's
waste. Scoop it and throw it into
the water as do many pet owners.
Who knew? Oh, and live-
aboards, maybe Woofy can be
trained to bend over the poop
deck for total owner convenience.
Yuck.

EDITOR:
The Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce board of directors
unanimously supports the state
Department of Transportation
road projects through Key Largo
to improve highway safety and
beautification.
The decision was based on
meetings with affected business
owners, in-depth discussions with
project managers including a
membership meeting attended by
87 people and feedback from
our members.
The vast majority of members
who have examined the plans and
discussed their concerns with
DOT are in favor.
DOT has said it will schedule
work during off hours to reduce
the impact on restaurants that stay
open late and hotels that want
peace and quiet for visitors.
Crews should not be in front of
any business for more than a day.
The work proceeds very quickly,
although the entire project will
take longer than any of us would
wish.
DOT will improve drainage, a
serious problem during the rainy
seasons, and will work with other
construction projects (sewer, bike
path improvements) to minimize
impacts.
Other pertinent facts:
All of the work will be in
the DOT right of way. No private
property will be taken. Any dam-
age to private property (like to
landscaping) 4ill\Nel put to rights.
No private parking will be


eliminated.
The composition and slope
of the shoulder are different from
the travel lanes. The shoulders are
not meant for daily traffic.
A 5-foot separation between
the shoulder and the bike path
will be maintained.
This project is not a fifth lane.
It is a resurfacing project that
includes a wider paved shoulder.
Opponents are tying the road
improvements to increased
growth and motorist recklessness.
DOT is not in charge of growth
management; the County
Commission is. And bad drivers
are a law-enforcement issue, not a
roadway issue.
Regarding the use of the
shoulder as a hurricane evacua-
tion lane: Since our visitors are
evacuated well in advance of an
approaching storm, and there are
years where no evacuations take
place, it is doubtful whether the
shoulder will be needed for this
purpose.
But if we do need it, is that
such a bad thing?
We know the.work will be
dirty and disruptive. We wish a
new road would magically appear
overnight. Barring that, we
believe it's important to keep an
eye on the prize that this proj-
ect, when completed, will
improve the safety and appear-
ance of Key Largo. Let's get it
done.

Here's perfect example

why government's broken


Talk about good intentions gone awry.
At Wednesday's County Commission
meeting, an item listed under bulk
approvals is announced innocently enough
as "Approval of Engagement Agreement
with Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart, P.A."
Turns out that's a Palm Beach County
law firm retained to defend the county in an
administrative challenge over runway work
done at Key West International Airport.
This was part of the county's compliance
with Federal Aviation Administration rules
governing runway safety.
Because the airport is in an environmen-
tally sensitive area, it took quite a bit of
time and permit review to construct runway
safety areas, which are designed to stop a
rolling plane in a safe manner
over a short distance.
When the South Florida Water
Management District approved
the county application for the
permit to relocate and fill a pond
west of the existing runway, in
steps Last Stand to file an
appeal.
Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart
will be hired to represent the
county in this process if the con-
tract is approved Wednesday.
Looking at their hourly rates,
it's quite an eye-opener. Top- Wayne M
paid litigator listed pulls in a Keynoter F
hefty $425 an hour. That would
be Brian M. Seymour. Several
other attorneys with the firm are in the
$350 to $300 an hour range. And then some
associates charge "only" $275 an hour on
down to $200 an hour.
Here's another little wrinkle to consider.
When Monroe County applied for federal
grants to make necessary runway improve-
ments, the feds coughed up $7.5 million. Of
that, the FAA sort of set aside $100,000
"for the costs of litigation."
So clearly, a portion of your federal tax
dollar goes to help fund such stupid things
as this.
The runway work has already been done.
The pond is gone and the county did the
required mitigation. Airplanes need a safe
landing zone.
So one needs to ask Last Stand and others
- what's to be gained by filing an admin-
istration appeal on the Water Management
District's permit approval?
If this is one of those so-called "holding
actions," it strikes me as too little, too late,
too expensive for us beleaguered tax pay-
ers.
And just looking at the paperwork needed
to itemize the lawyers' travel expenses'and
per diem for lodging and a raft of other bill-
able items makes my head hurt.
When you ask why government takes too
long to accomplish so little and at such a:


high cost, Wednesday's agenda item on
Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart gives you just
one small part of the answer.


While on the topic of wasting time,
another agenda item, this one requested by
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro, addresses an
inappropriate e-mail sent by Commissioner
George Neugent to a handful of people.
Di Gennaro wants to censure Neugent
and adopt penalties for any future infraction
by any commissioner (county rules already
govern such things for staff).
Aside from the longstanding political dis-
putes between Di Gennaro and Neugent,
there's the question of why such
a big stink now, just days before
the Aug. 26 primary?
Neugent has already said he
regrets sending the e-mail, which
contained a video that displayed
bare breasts. The e-mail was in
response to comments reportedly
made by Key West attorney Jerry
Coleman directed at Neugent.
The whole thing smacks of
sandbox misbehavior. To see it
blown out of proportion is a bit
sad.
arkham Facing unprecedented revenue
Publisher shortfalls, staff cuts and a fed-up
electorate, it seems all five com-
missioners should focus on more
important things than this.
But you have to remember that this is the
election season and games will be played.

Fire shief.says

By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Plans for the Islamorada
fire chief to also assume chief
duties in Marathon moved
ahead on Tuesday when the
Marathon City Council asked
staffers to draw up an agree-
ment.
Most of the Marathon coun-
cil members spoke in favor of
sharing Fire Chief William
Wagner, an idea brought for-
ward by Marathon and
Islamorada managers after
Marathon Fire Chief Dale
Beaver unexpectedly resigned
last week.
"When I first heard of this, I
thought, 'Why would Mr.-
Wagner come down and split
the time with us and why
would Islamorada let him?'
But they are on board,"
Marathon Vice Mayor Chris
Bull said. "It saves us money. I
think it would be a grave mis-

take if we didn't go forward
with this."
Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett told the council
the agreement would be for
one year with a 30-day termi-
nation clause.
Marathon Fire Rescue Capt.
Lisa Watson, whom Burnett
put in charge of administration
following Beaver's resigna-
tion, said the department
would welcome Wagner.
-"Everyone knows Chief
Wagner and he's an amazing
resource," Watson said at a
council workshop. "We're here
to make it work, and when I
say we that means our whole
department."
Islamorada Village
Manager Ken Fields said there
might also be benefits of com-
bining more areas of the
municipalities' fire and rescue
departments.
"The idea would be to
merge the two departments,"
Fields said, "to have basically
the potential savings from hav-
ing one chief instead of two,
one training person instead of
two, and provide better coordi-
nation and better emergency
management."
Fields said he and Burnett
met with County Admin-
istrator Roman Gastesi to dis-
cuss overlapping fire and res-
cue services on Conch Key,
Duck Key. and the city of
Layton between Marathon-and
Islamorada.
The plan to merge depart-
ments, they said, could involve

a coordinated effort to serve
residents and businesses from
the Seven Mile Bridge to the
Tavernier Creek Bridge, a
stretch that makes up. more
than one-third of the Keys and
includes nearly 30,000 resi-
dents in peak season.
The Islamorada Village
Council has yet to publicly
discuss the plan to share a fire
chief with Marathon, but
Mayor Cathi Hill said anything
that could save money is worth
exploring.
"On the surface it appears
like an opportunity to
explore," Hill said. "If there's
anyone in South Florida who
has the capabilities of making
it happen and making it run
smoothly, it's William Wagner.
If we've got to share him,
we'll share him."
Wagner has more, than 30,
years of fire and emergency
management experience in the
Keys and is the older brother
of former Marathon Fire Chief
Hans Wagner, who preceded
Beaver.
"I know Marathon like the
back of my hand," Wagner
said. "I know the individuals,
the community leaders and the
politics. And there are good
officers in 'both departments,
and that's key to making this
work."
Wagner said he took a class
from the International
Association of Firefighters
specifically on department
mergers, and he shared his
notes with Fields, Burnett and
Gastesi.
He said benefits of a merger
would be a greater ability for
Islamorada and Marathon to
share the cost and use of new
equipment, establish uniform
training and firefighting tactics
and, most importantly, create
better incentives to attract and
retain personnel.
Wagner said the greatest
drawback for many might be
the fear of the unknown.
"These cities incorporated
to control their own destiny, so
there's always apprehension in
growing government," he said.
"I'm just saying give me a
chance for a year to take a look
at this, balance out some
things and see if there is way
to make it work."

Fire marshal pokes Porky's


Tells town:
Don't fight
your own fires
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

When Marathon resident
Johnny Maddox watched the
home of his good friend Robert
"Rocketman" Hudson bum to the
ground June 4, he took matters
into his own hands by creating
Porky's Pumper, a makeshift fire-
fighting machine.
But it seems Maddox and
Marathon Fire Rescue assistant
fire marshal Adam Geaneas have
conflicting views on the device.
Maddox called the pumper a pre-
ventative measure, while
Geaneas said Maddox is opening
himself up to lawsuits by encour-
aging residents to take firefight-
ing into their own hands.


Porky's Pumper is a gas-pow-
ered, 6.5-horsepower Mitsubishi
engine mounted on a steel wagon
with air tires. It has 225 feet of
1.5-inch fire hose that shoots a
stream of water some 50 feet and
another 40 feet of pickup hose
capable of drawing 7,920 gallons
of water per hour from a canal or
other water source.
"I have five buildings and a
restaurant and I asked myself
what would I do. I've got $10
million worth of property over
here and I have no fire protection,
or very little," Maddox said.
So Maddox says he researched
Web sites related to firefighting
in remote locations and eventual-
ly ordered the necessary parts to
build the first Porky's Pumper.
He recently sold a second unit to
Dot Palm Landscaping owners
John and Gigi Harrison for
$2,500.


Maddox even claimed former
Fire Chief Dale Beaver inspected
the device and said: "I would like
to have one of those on every one
of our pickups as first response."
"I wouldn't want it if it's not
approved, especially not on our
trucks. Every light and sticker on
that truck is to National Fire
Protection Association stan-
dards," Geaneas said. "They reg-
ulate everything."
Maddox said he supports
Marathon's fire department "200
percent" and only hopes the
Pumper give him a better chance
to save his property in the event
of a fire.
"I took things into my own
hands and I'll be there squirting
when the fire. department shows
up," he said. "If you don't protect
yourself, nobody else will."
But Geaneas says Maddox
selling Porky's Pumpers without
a state certificate in fire suppres-
sion is a felony and that the

device has not been properly test-
ed by Underwriters Laboratories.
Maddox admits the product has
not been tested and that he holds
no state certificates.
But Maddox says the machine


has various uses other than fight-
ing fires.
"They can use it for lawn
sprinkling for all I'm concerned,-
it's a portable watering device,"
he said.

rights transfers


Crane Point
hopes to sell
off 251
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Well over an hour of discus-
sion wasn't enough for the
Marathon City Council to
decide on a resolution that
would allow the sale and trans-
fer of development rights from
the city.
The council eventually
pulled the item at Tuesday's.
council" meeting after numerous
questions were raised, especial-
ly over an interlocal agreement
crafted by an assistant Monroe
County attorney.
Councilmen Mike Cinque
and Don Vasil were vocal in
their opposition, calling the
ordinance with the interlocal
agreement bad for the city.
"I think they purposefully
wrote it broad hoping that our
hearts would cave in to Crane
Hammock," Cinque said.
The 64-acre museum and
nature center in Marathon holds
251 coveted transferable devel-
opment rights, or TDRs.
TDRs are different from
transferable building rights, or
TBRs. According to Planning
Director George Garrett, a TDR
is the inherent density one
acquires by owning land within
the county or city. A TBR is the
transfer of an actual building
permit allocation.
TDRs can be bought to allow
a property owner to potentially
build up to the property's maxi-
mum allowable density, though
permit allocations must still be
acquired.
Originally intended to assist
Crane Point Hammock with
badly needed funding by allow-
ing it to sell TDRs, the resolu-
tion appeared to allow all resi-
dents of all Keys municipalities
to sell density.
"1 think all five of us will
bend over backwards to help
Crane Point, but I'd rather see a
site-specific ordinance. To go
overboard right now would be a
major mistake," Vasil said.
Vice Mayor: Chris Bull said
his fellow '-hdcil members'


interpretation of the agreement's
language was too narrow.
"This isn't just the Wild
West; everything comes in front
of us," Bull said of potential
density transfers. "This is writ-
ten as such that it goes out from
the city of Marathon and has to
be approved by the city."
Crane Point board member
Lynn Mapes said the council
misunderstood the agreement
and that it was meant to enable
TDRs to be transferred any-
where in the county.
"We have a number of TDRs
left from when we were a part of
Monroe County. If you let us ,
transfer them out of Marathon
as well as into Marathon, we
believe we can sell them not just
to survive but to grow," Mapes
said, noting Crane Point and
many other nonprofit groups'
funding has dried up.
But the council was reluctant
to allow density to leave
Marathon, especially when
Garrett said the city's TDR ordi-
nance does not include a mecha-
nism to transfer them within the
city.
"I think Marathon has the
right to speak first for a TDR
that exists in Marathon,"
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said:.-
"The potential use of TDRs
down the road isn't something
we can address today because
we don't know what the future
of the city is," Vasil said.
Several representatives of the
Education Coalition of Monroe
County spoke at the meeting, as
well. They were concerned
Crane Point will use funds from
selling TDRs to purchase state

Di Gennaro wants


Neugent censured


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Veiled threats of violence,
some not-so-veiled female anato-
my and talk of sending a fellow
commissioner to the political
scrap heap has moved Monroe
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro to try to censure fellow
Commissioner George Neugent.
"This is just wrong," said Di
Gennaro, who has added an item
to Wednesday's commission
meeting agenda seeking censure
against Neugent for sending what
he calls improper e-mails from
his county account. i
One instance stems from sev-
eral public-records requests by
attorney Jerry Coleman that
turned up a string of messages
between Neugent and No'Name
Key residents Mick and Alicia
Putney. In an April 30 note just
signed "A," the writer talked of
fantasizing about the day when
Neugent "bolts gracefully from
those damn swivel chairs and
slides] down the table and grabs
the throat of the offending com-
missioner," presumably one of
his political opponents.
"You do it so gracefully and
quickly, appropriately planting
your thumb on the other commis-
sioner and you pretend to rescue
them." The note then talks about
police arriving and witnesses
saying, "it must have been a heart
attack or stroke."
Neugent's written response to
the tirade: "You got it."
"I was taken aback and didn't
know how to respond to what she
said," Neugent told the Keynoter
Friday. "It was so bizarre and
cryptic that I didn't know how to


respond."
The Putneys were unavailable
for comment Friday.
"There are life threats in
there," said Commissioner Sonny
McCoy, who often spars with
Neugent on Keys issues. "This
resolution is the first step to be
taken."
Di Gennaro's resolution for
censure also refers to Neugent e-
mails that talk about having
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
defeated in the upcoming elec-
tion.
There's also a March e-mail
Neugent sent to several county
employees as well as local news-
paper editors. The message con-
tained. a spoof music video that
featured clips from various films,
all with women removing -their
tops to reveal bare breasts. It was
a response to Coleman calling
him a boob.
"I guess sometimes my can-
didness gets me in trouble,"
Neugent said. "But I don't have
any guilt over what I sent. It-was-
n't porn and most people I sent it
to said it was cute. This is the
21st Century; how prudish can
you get?"
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said her staff reviewed the
video after it came to light and,
based on the fact that most of the
clips were taken from broadly
released films with "R or PG rat-
ings," it -would not be considered
pornography.
On Aug. 13, Hutton sent an e-
mail to Neogent noting that nei-
ther she nor County Admin-
istrator Roman Gastesi could dis-
cipline him.

City fees


rising slightly


By SEAN KINNEY
Keynoter Contributor

Key West residents will like-
ly see a rise in stormwater, trash
and sewer fees come Oct. 1.
Stormwater management
now costs a typical residential
household $7.05 monthly. The
Key West Utilities Department
has recommended the City
Commission approve a 4.20 per-
cent increase that would raise
that bill to $7.35 monthly. The
hike would pay for stormwater
treatment upgrades.
Officials are also proposing
solid-waste removal rates be
raised 3.37 percent for fiscal
year 2009 and then be raised
3.37 percent annually.
Current annual residential
rates for solid-waste removal,
which includes garbage pick-up
and recycling services, amount
to $300 per household. That
would go to $310 per household
in 2009 anid continue growing. If
the rate adjustment continues at
S3.37 percent every year as rec-
ommended, the annual cost
would reach $432 per household
in fiscal year 2020.
The sewer rate is being raised
3.16 percent. Assistant City
Manager David Fernandez said
it's a "cost-of-living increase for
the utility."
A residential household with
metered consumption of 2,500
gallons per month now pays
$31.01 per month. With the rate
increase, the bill for the same
house with the same consump-

tion would be $31.99.
All three utilities appear on
the same monthly bill for Key
West residents. Using the model
outlined above, a typical resi-
dential bill for all three utilities
is currently $63.89 per month. If
the rate increases are approved
by the City Commission, that
bill would be $65.17 per month.
Before the utility fees and
general budget can be approved,
the Key West City Commission
will hold two public hearings,
Sept. 3 and 16. Both are sched-
uled for 6 p.m. at Old City Hall.
Special meeting
The City Commission is
holding a special meeting at 6
p.m. Tuesday at Old City Hall,
where County Administrator
Roman Gastesi is scheduled to
present a development concept
for a hotel at Key International
Airport. The county owns the
airport.
Bid proposals are a 19-story
Hilton pitched by PRA
Management Corp. of
Philadelphia, a three-story
Westin proposed by
Starwood/Champ from Atlanta
and a four-story Hampton Inn
proposed by IDC Development
of Woodstock, Ga.
The decision to develop the
hotel is up to the Monroe County
Commission. Gastesi merely is
presenting the information for
city input.

'General consensus' on sewers


Unincorporated
area is getting
the most funding
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

They didn't reach complete
agreement, but state Rep. Ron
Saunders says he can show
Tallahassee that Keys elected
officials have a solid plan for
spending $200 million in state-
funded sewer bonds.
"We didn't finalize it, get it
down to the penny," Saunders
said following a so-called
sewer summit he called
Wednesday in Marathon. "But
we got a good general consen-
sus on the split."
According to the initial pro-
posed split, which likely will
be tweaked as the money is
realized in $50 million incre-
ments over the next four years:
Unincorporated Monroe
County, 36.47 percent.
Key Largo Wastewater
District, 22.5 percent.
Islamorada, 17.1 percent.
Marathon, 11 percent.
Key West, 11.5 percent.
Ocean Reef, 1.33 percent.
Key Colony Beach, 0.1
percent.
The Florida Legislature has


The costs,

the $200M
The Monroe County
Engineering Department came
to Wednesday's sewer summit
with an estimate of costs to fin-
ish sewing the Keys -and thus
meet the state's July 2010 dead-
line to have sewers installed.
Following are the sewer
authorities with estimated costs
and the suggested share of $200
million promised by the state
over four years:
Ocean Reef, $10.35 mil-
lion, $2.66 million.
Key Largo Wastewater


agreed to bond out the $50 mil-
lion a year over the next four
years to help the Keys meet a
state-mandated July 2010
deadline for central sewer
installation. That's $200 mil-
lion the state will repay in an
effort to ease the local burden
on a project that's estimated to
cost more than $500 million
before it's completed.
Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District General
Manager Chuck Fishburn pre-
sented a breakdown that not
only showed the shared $200
million from the state over the
next four years, but broke out
the value of the state subsidy.
According to his calcula-
tions, the state would pay about
$4,200 per household toward
the cost of a sewer in
Islamorada, but as much as
$9,000 per household in unin-
corporated Monroe. Most of
the sewer work in the unincor-
porated area is in the Lower
Keys.
Saunders says the state has
made it clear that sewer proj-
ects that are ready to proceed
- those that have been
designed and are ready for dirt
to be turned will be the first
to get the money.
Islamorada Village Manager


split
Treatment District, $197.5 mil-
lion, $45 million.
Islamorada, $132.37 mil-
lion, $34.2 million.
Key Colony Beach,
$500,000, $200,000.
Marathon, $85.03 million,
$22 million.
Unincorporated Monroe,
$260.45 million, $72.94 million.
Key West, $89.03 million,
$23 million.
Total, $775.25, $200 mil-
lion.


Ken says. his municipality is
close to being ready for the
funding with the construction
of its sewer plant, but he wor-
ries progress in Marathon and
Key Largo might jeopardize
his community's small lead.

Woman critically injured
from watercraft crash

A Melbourne woman travel-
ing in a personal-wateicraft
tour from Islamorada suffered
critical injuries Wednesday.
Patricia Cerve, 31, was
flown by air ambulance to
Ryder Trauma Center in Miami
after initial treatment at
Mariners Hospital in
Tavernier. Thursday, she
underwent surgery for her
injuries. Specifics were not
available.
Cerve was operating a
rental PWC and her daughter,
7, was a passenger. They were
on a nature tour of nearshore
areas, according to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission.
Cerve lost control of the
2008 watercraft in Snake
Creek Channel, FWC investi-
gators said. The PWC struck
the channel headpin the
marker farthest from shore -
head-on.
A U.S. Coast Guard boat
that was heading out on patrol
from the nearby Islamorada
Coast Guard station arrived on
the scene soon after the crash
and transported Cerve and her
daughter to shore.
Cerve remained listed in
critical condition Thursday,
FWC Officer Bobby Dube
says.
The daughter was treated at
Mariners Hfoipilial Her condi-
tion was not available.

Neugent says
Stock Island
can wait for now
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Stock Island residents might
have to wait longer to get a new
fire station.
Plans to construct a $2.15 mil-
lion station are on the table for
2009, but Monroe County
Commissioner George. Neugent
says they should be -delayed to
free up money for sewer con-



,Ftat..a 0

with real bi S


struction.
"We're broke," he said.
The state has mandated that
the Keys have central sewers by
July 2010.
"2010 is right around the cor-
ner, and we have to provide
money for sewer design engi-
neering. If we don't get these
sewer projects going, the people
in the Keys are going to have to
pay twice to hook up to sewers,"
Neugent said.
That's because if central sew-
ers aren't installed by the dead-
line, homeowners would have to
pay to upgrade their septic sys-
tems with on-site treatment
plants. Then they would have to
pay again to hook up to a central
system when one is constructed.

Neugent will propose delaying
construction of a'Stock Island fire
station and shift the money to
cover a shortfall of $3.4 million
for the Duck Key sewer project.
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
says that's not an option.
"Absolutely, positively no,"
she said. "We have taken a posi-
tion as a commission not to do
anything to hinder the health and
safety of the residents. And that
fire station is badly needed. I am
blown away by the suggestion."
Neugent also wants to save
money by delaying Public
Works' move from Key West
International Airport to a new
Rockland Key building.
"I would agree on delaying the
move to Rockland Key," Spehar
said.
Delaying the fire station and
Public Works move would have
no impact on next year's property
taxes, as capital and infrastruc-


ture .funding comes from sales
taxes.
Also on Wednesday's com-
mission agenda:
A proposal to reinstate the
county's affordable housing coor-
dinator. The position was cut as
part of a series of cutbacks to
lower the 2008-09 budget, but
Lynn Mapes, chairman of the
county's Affordable Housing
Task Force, says the job is neces-
sary "for the success of affordable
housing efforts in the county;"
Approval of E. Hunt
Scheuerman to be the county's
new medical examiner. A 20-
member search committee chose
Scheuerman to succeed Michael
Hunter, who resigned to take a
similar job in the Panhandle.
Scheuerman will serve in an
interim capacity until his appoint-
ment is approved by the Florida
Medical Examiners Commission
and Gov. Charlie Crist.


Council imposes

$631 sewer fee


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Islamorada residents will like-
ly see a new fee on their tax bill
this year a $631 assessment to
partially fund the initial costs of
developing a villagewide central
sewer system.
The Village Council gave pre-
liminary approval for the fees
Tuesday. Council members said
past inaction has forced
Islamorada to start moving on
wastewater or face consequences
of polluted nearshore waters,
possible state penalties and a
likelihood of no state funding, if
any becomes available.
"We've already made our bed
on this one. To complain that it's
too lumpy now is wrong," Mayor
Cathi Hill said. "We told the gov-
ernment we're doing this. We
promised them we were going to
do this."
Village Finance Director
Cindy Lawson said the fees will
generate $2.5 million of the
roughly $22.6 million needed for
planning, design, land, permitting
and other costs of creating a
sewer utility.
The total cost for the village
system has not been determined,
but Councilman Dave Boemer


has estimated it at about $115
million. A similar system in
Marathon is estimated at about
$82 million.
The $631 fee will also act as a
"down payment," Lawson said,
that will be deducted from resi-
dents' final wastewater connec-
tion charges, which are still to be
determined.
The only residents that won't
be assessed are those who
already paid ($5,676 for a single-
family home) to connect to the
existing North Plantation Key
sewage treatment plant.
However, those residents will
eventually share the costs of the
entire system.
Village Manager Ken Fields
said the Plantation Key system
put the village ahead of other
municipalities in complying with
the state's mandate for advanced
wastewater treatment for all resi-
dents and businesses by July
2010. However, Islamorada is
now far behind.
"Over the next 12 to 18
months, both Marathon and Key
Largo are going to go by us like a
freight train and .we're still stuck
at the station," he said. "We're up
against it."

"It isn't on, it isn't over,"
said City Commissioner Bill
Verge of plans to sink the USS
Hoyt Vandenberg bff Key West
to create an artificial reef and
diving destination.
The ship is now docked in
Virginia where it will remain at
least until hurricane season is
over. And then, it's anyone's
guess.
Escalating costs and evapo-
rating finances have stalled the
Vandenberg project, and it's
uncertain whether the ship will
ever come to Key West.
It will cost $8.45 million to
scuttle the Vandenberg accord-
ing to the most recent estimate.
A bank consortium consist-
ing of BB&T, Orion and First
State Bank offered an initial
combined investment of $4.6
million at the project's outset
but scaled that back to $3.2 mil-


include:
+ Monroe County, $2 mil-
lion.
City of Key West, $1.3
million.
U.S. Maritime Admin-
istration, $1.3 million.
Tourist Development
Council, $1 million.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, $1
million.
This leaves a funding gap of
$1.85 million that needs to be
raised either through private
donations or more government
earmarks.
District IV Commissioner
Barry Gibson said the City
Commission is "still interested"
but that considering finances,
the project "sounds like it's
becoming an unreality."
But Verge was upbeat. "This
investment will make money
for 100 years," he told the
Keynoter. He went on to project
that free media coverage from
the scuttling would be valued at


, citing interest from
rning America," the
Channel's
ers" and other
id international out-


lets.
Jackie Harder, president of
the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce and champion of the
.Spiegel Grove scuttling, said
"sinking ships these days is
very, very difficult...it's a real
tough thing to do."
The total cost of sinking the
Spiegel Grove was $1.4 million;
$868,000 was provided by the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council. The dif-
ference was made up by a
$300,000 allocation from the
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce Artificial Reef
Committee and a medallion-
purchasing program involving
local dive shops including a
'$250,000 guarantee from
Divers Direct. There is current-
ly $98,000 left on the bank note
which is due in 2013.
Harder said that the success
of the Spiegel Grove project is
due, in large part, to continuing
community support.

Village hikes trash fee


By DAVID BALL
dball @keysreporter.com


After approving a preliminary.
tax increase and a new sewer
assessment for Islamorada resi-
dents, the Village Council has
added another cost to taxpayers.
in the form of a $68 increase in
garbage collection fees for the
coming year.
Finance Director Cindy
Lawson said the 23 percent
increase in residents' annual
garbage assessment, .from $295
to about $363, is mainly due to a
new five-year contract with
garbage hauler Veolia
Environmental Service that
includes rises in fuel prices.
Veolia is also expected to
increase education and services
for recycling, including adding a
new recycling truck that will start
collecting additional materials
such as magazines, phonebooks,
juice cartons and office paper.
While the majority of the
council said it sees the increase as
necessary, council members
Dave Boerner and Jill Zima
Borski dissented in a 3-2 vote.
"I do not support the five-year,
no-bid extension of this con-
tract," Boemer said. "This does
not achieve the goal of reducing
costs'."
Boerner contended Veolia's
increased fuel costs should be
balanced by the decreased cost of
hauling recyclable materials
compared to other solid waste.
Veolia manager Bruce Williams


said it costs $56 to dispose of a
cubic yard of recycling material"
and $72 for a cubic yard of solid
waste.
Zima Borski added that Veolia
could reduce trash pick up from
twice a week to once a week dur-
ing off-season.
However, the rest of the coun-
cil said recycling in Islamorada
isn't at a point to start brining
costs down. Plus, they felt the


level of service provided by
Veolia warranted a new contract.
"They take out the garbage,
and any time there is a problem
we call Bruce and he takes care of
it," Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt said. "In some
aspects, I'm very pleased we are
renewing the contract. Service is
very important in this field."
The council approved the
assessments in the 3-2 vote, but
the board will take up the actual
Veolia contract Aug. 28.

The board of directors of
the Key West Chamber of
Commerce met Wednesday
and re-visited the chamber's
opposition to offshore
drilling. Bascom Grooms, a
Key West real estate agent
and president of the cham-
ber, said the 25 members
who make up the board
agreed to maintain the
board's opposition to
drilling off Florida's coast-
line.
The Key Largo Chamber
of Commerce is planning to
discuss offshore drilling at
its Aug. 27 board meeting.
The board has no policy on
offshore drilling, according
to Jackie Harder, the cham-
ber's president.

Hot brands and cool prices


Key Largo
clothing store

By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keys Sunday contributor

Women in search of boutique
clothes at not-so-boutique
prices may think they've struck
gold at Wear With All, a new
store on the upper level of the
Tradewinds Plaza at mile mark-
er 101 in Key Largo.


Owner Lynda Nelson-
Oeltjen operated the store for
six years in Coral Springs until
she met her husband about a
year ago. When they married
and relocated to the Keys, she
decided to move the store to
Key Largo. She opened at the
end of July.
Nelson-Oeltjen says that her
customers are women between
the ages of 25 to 55, many of
them mothers who care about
fashion.


"They don't want to just
throw on sweatpants and a big
T-shirt," she said. "They want to
look nice and fashionable, but
they are very savvy with their
costs." Brands carried at the
store include Lucky, Michael
Stars, Bejeweled, True
Religion, Seven For All
Mankind and Bella Dahl.
Nelson-Oeltjen sells clothes
in her shop for wholesale rather
than retail cost. She says she's
able to do it because she buys

Key West refuge
still bears Roosevelt's imprint


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

President Theodore Roosevelt
put a feather in his cap just over
100 years ago by signing into law
the establishment of the Key
West National Wildlife Refuge.
Roosevelt created the refuge
Aug. 8, 1908, in response to the
burgeoning fashion trend of
adorning ladies' hats with the
feathers of colorful migratory
birds. The practice had such a
negative impact on various
species' populations that
Roosevelt was forced to protect
and preserve the birds' breeding
grounds.
"This was one of several
refuges, about 20, he established
during his administration, a num-
ber of which were in Florida in
the first part of the century,"
National Key Deer Refuge
Manager Anne Morkill said.
Morkill says in 1903, an
ounce of bird feathers was worth
more than $32 twice the price
of gold. Adult birds were hunted,
resulting in abandoned nests and
destroyed eggs of snowy egrets,
herons, pelicans and many oth-
ers.
One of four refuges in the
Keys, the Key West National
Wildlife Refuge today serves as


habitat for more than 250 bird
species, as well as endangered
marine turtles and the rare Miami
blue butterfly.
The refuge has boundaries 10
miles wide and 25 miles long and
covers 206,289 acres of state
waters managed by the U.S, Fish
and Wildlife Service.
Refuge staff and volunteers
will host a daylong celebration,
including a visit from "Teddy
Roosevelt" himself, of the cen-
tennial anniversary from 10 a.m.
to 4 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Florida
Keys. Eco-Discovery Center in
Key West.
"We've got a number of dif-
ferent groups and partners that
are going to have information
booths," Morkill said. "We also
have a series of speakers talking
about the work being done in the
refuge."
For more information, contact
the Eco-Discovery Center at 809-
4750 or the National Key Deer
Refuge Visitor Center at 872-
0774.

NOTICE OF HEARING TO IMPOSE AND
PROVIDE FOR COLLECTION OF SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS

Notice is hereby given that the City of Marathon, Florida, (the "City") will conduct a public hearing to consider the
continued imposition of special assessments against certain parcels of property located in the Little Venice Wastewater
District. The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, on September 9, 2008
at the Marathon Government Center, EOC Room, 2798 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida for the purpose of
receiving public comment on the proposed assessments and their collection on the tax bill. In accordance with the
Americans with Disabilities Act, if you are a person with a disability who needs any accommodation in order to
participate in this proceeding, you are entitled, at no cost to you, to the provision of certain assistance. Please contact
the City at (305)289-5020, at least seven days prior to the public hearing. All affected property owners have a right to
appear at the hearing and to file written objections with the City within 20 days of this notice. If a person wishes to
appeal any decision made by the City Council with respect to any matter considered at the hearing, such person will need
a record of the proceedings and may need to ensure that a verbatim record is made, including the testimony and evidence
upon which the appeal is to be made.

The Assessments were originally imposed by the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (the "Authority") in 2002 and 2003
to fund the construction -of the wastewater collection and treatment improvements within the Little Venice Wastewater
District, which was divided into sub-assessment areas based upon the year the initial assessments were imposed.
Pursuant to the terms of the Little Venice Transfer Agreement entered into by and between the Authority and the City,
the City will assume the ownership and operation of the Little Venice wastewater collection and treatment system on or
about October 1, 2008. Accordingly, the City will take over the annual collection of the outstanding Assessments. The
assessment for each parcel of property will be determined in accordance with the calculation procedures adopted by the
Authority, which were based on the number of equivalent dwelling units (EDUs) attributable to each parcel. Unless
prepaid, the annual assessment include your share of the principal, interest and collection cost. The maximum annual
assessment is estimated to be $308.82 per EDU for those properties in the 2002 sub-assessment area, and $308.82 per
EDU for those properties in the 2003 sub-assessment area. A more specific description is set forth in Resolution No. 02-
09 adopted by the Authority on February 21,2002 and Resolution No. 03-14 adopted by the Authority on June 26, 2003,
which were ratified and confirmed by the City with the adoption of Resolution No.2008-119 on August 12,2008. Copies
of these resolutions, the Little Venice Transfer Agreement, and the updated Assessment Roll are available for inspection
at the offices of the City Manager, located at 9805 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida.

The assessments will be collected on the ad valorem tax bill, as authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. Failure
to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title.
The City Council intends to collect the assessments which were originally imposed in 2002 in not to exceed fourteen
(14) annual assessments, the first of which will be included on the ad valorem tax bill to be mailed in November 2008.
The City Council intends to collect the assessments which were originally imposed in 2003 in not to exceed fifteen (15)
annual assessments, the first of which will be included on the ad valorem tax bill to be mailed in November 2008. Future
annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner.

If you have any questions, please contact Community Services at (305)289-4104 or (305)289-4115.

Coral spawn
about to start
off the Keys
Underwater voyeurs vie for
spots to dive Keys reefs for the
annual coral love affair sparked
by the August full moon.
The rare exchange of repro-
ductive cells fascinates divers
for the sheer volume of white
excretion that seemingly fills the
ocean.
Scientists' observations indi-
cate a strong connection


between the coral spawn and
seasonal lunar cycles.
This year, the full moon falls
tonight, so divers should make
reservations with dive operators
for coral spawning night dives
three to eight days after the full
moon.
The generally accepted
schedule is for branching corals
(e.g., finger, staghorn and
elkhorn corals) in the Keys to
spawn is three to five days after
the full moon, about two houos
after sunset. Star and boulder
corals spawn six to eight days,
after the August full moon, about
three hours after sunset.
The exact cues triggering the
annual phenomenon remain'
unclear, but it is believed to be
linked to water temperatures as
well as the lunar, tidal and 24-
hour light cycles.-
"It's pretty amazing to see
how it works," said Dan
Dawson, owner of Horizon
Divers in Key Largo. "My wife
sat there in the sand for an hour
and all of a sudden saw the coral
secretion and then saw it floating

away.
According to marine scien-
tists, while corals use multiple
reproductive strategies, nearly
all large, reef-building species
release millions of gametes once
a year in synchronized mass-
spawning rituals. The spectacu-
lar displays allow the stationary
animals to mix genetically and
disperse offspring over great dis-
tances.
This method of reproduction,
called broadcast spawning,
enables the immobile animals to
send their eggs and sperm into
the water in massive quantities.
When egg and sperm unite, the
resulting larval-stage "planula"
swims to the surface to drift in
the current and grow. After some
time two days to two fnonths
- the planula settles to the bot-
tom, where it grows into a polyp.
The polyp grows into a coral
head by asexual budding that
creates new polyps.
Such a copious delivery sys-
tem is believed to maximize the
chances of fertilization, and at
the same time overwhelm preda-
tors with more food than they
can consume.

Reaches higher
and wider to
include music
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

It almost seemed too easy.
Start an artists colony with a little
seed money, and by the end of the
first season, you're the "it" place
to be, partnering with just about
every other arts group in town
and flying in writers, artists and
teachers from points north to
teach workshops and make sculp-
tures.
The Studios of Key West is
beginning its second season this
fall, and is expanding its reach
further to include more evening
classes for locals who work dur-
ing the day and also expanding
their focus from writing and visu-
al arts to include performing arts
- drama and music.
Also of note is that this year's
season of classes and programs
has been mapped out from the
beginning by Martha Barnes,
who came here to Key West in
July of 2007 on vacation and fell
into the job of program coordina-
tor. She'd seen a small item in a
local publication saying volun-
teer board members were needed
at the Studios of Key West and


called the Armory to tell
Executive Director Eric
Holowacz that if she moved
down from Pennsylvania she
might be available. As it turned
out, his program coordinator had
just resigned and walked out the
door, weeks before the season
was to open. And Holowacz had
been sitting at his desk wonder-
ing what to do. When he met
Barnes and heard that she had 15
years of experience in arts man-
agement, he asked if she might
by chance be interested in a paid
position. "He likes to say it was a
Zen moment," says Barnes. "I
say 'You just caught me after two
Margaritas.'"
Barnes accepted the offer, and
went back up to Pennsylvania,
where she resigned her position
as director of the arts center at
Albright College in Redding, Pa.
She moved to Key West in
September and later that month,
started work heading up pro-
grams at the Studios.
Last year's offering of classes
and workshops was impressive.
If you happened to pick up the
schedule, printed on newsprint,
you would have been surprised
that such a young organization
was importing so many profes-
sional painters, writers and pho-
tographers to teach workshops.
And if you kept tabs on what was
going on at the Armory in the last


*'5 I ~ U


year, you might have been sur-
prised to see the Studios of Key
West, known as TSKW, join
forces with the MARC House,
the Wesley House, and a host of
other nonprofits. "I think we've
broken down a lot of barriers,"
says Barnes, "an 'Oh, that's an
artsy place.'"
There is nothing pretentious
about TSKW, housed in the old
yellow Armory building on
White Street, across from one of
the Naval Air Station Key West
annexes. Elena Devers, the
always helpful and pleasant proj-
ect coordinator, greets people
coming in from a half door in the
foyer. And there is not an ounce
of uppity in either Barnes or
Holowacz.
Most classes are held in the
main hall, a large room with
painted wooden floors and 15-
foot ceilings. Studio artists
including Letty Nowak work in
studios on the second floor.
This fall, Bamrnes says they're
going to offer more classes that
meet in the evenings, so that
locals can come; and in the
spring, more week-long work-
shops, better for snowbirds or for
people taking a constructive
vacation.

in part because the community,
says Barnes, is so "theatrically
developed." Every second
Sunday of the month starting in
December they'll host a "Works
in Progress" event to be hosted
by Juliet Gray, co-director of the
Broadway Theatre Project. The
caf6-style event will include
poetry readings and monologues,
says Barnes, and singer/songwrit-
ers could use it to try out new
songs.
Also planned for this year is a
"New Folk Music Series" with
four concerts starting in
*November. Bill Miller, a
Grammy Award-winning Native
American singer, will be coming
down to play the first concert.
Carrie Newcomer, an up-and-
coming folk singer from the
Midwest, will play the second
concert.

diver who breathes through a.
ventilator to complete two suc-
cessful ocean dives in the Florida
Keys.
Floating face down with a
medical team nearby, Johnston
made his historic dives in shallow
water over the reefs off the Keys.
The experience fulfilled a long-
time dream for the 32-year-old
Johnston, a quadriplegic who was
diagnosed during his childhood
with Duchenne's muscular dys-
trophy, a hereditary degenerative
disease of the voluntary muscles.
He planned to attend the
exhibit's opening, via Web cam.
"Inclusion in the museum will
carry Matt's inspiration to yet
another audience," said Michael
Lombardi of Oceans of
Opportunity, a not-for-profit
organization that collaborated
with Johnston to bring his dream
to life and inspire others to reach
their goals.'
Among the items on display
are the double-limb vent circuit
(white hoses fixed to his suit) and
a custom-made Diving Unlimited
International dry suit. %
"The first suit is important


because it's a prototype for peo-
ple with trachs," said Johnston,
whose paralyzed lungs receive
air through a tracheotomy
("trach") tube connected to a ven-
tilator.
Museum visitors can watch an
11-minute video segment about
Johnston's diving experience that
aired on NBC's "Today Show"
and see Johnston's original
Scubility Open Water Diver cer-
tificate believed to be the first
in the world.
As well as his Florida Keys
first, the 32-year-old Johnston
was among the first full quadri-
plegics to dive, pioneering scuba
diving with muscular dystrophy.
He also authored the "Manual for
Ventilator-Dependent
Quadriplegic Diving."
In the manual's introduction,
Johnston wrote, "Diving is not
just about all the trips you take
and the adventures you have. It's
also about the friendships you
make both above and below the
water."

Midsummer's Night party draws 500

By MARGARET MENGEro
n~gienge~akeynoter.com


You could tell which one was
Joyce Stahl's home because boys
with horns and girls in fairy
dresses were going in through the
front gate and someone on stilts
as tall as a lamppost was crossing
Eaton Street on that comer.
Stahl's second annual
Midsummer's Night Dream
party in Key West drew more
than 500 people. The party was
held at her large two-story home,
and on the porches and in the gar-
dens that surround it.
Michael Shields, the party
organizer, says the scene was like
a "cultural commons" or a "vil-
lage square without the politics."
Little girls with faces half painted
sat on the bricks outside enjoying
the performers on the small
-ditge. And people of all ages
helped themselves to plates of
pasta salad and Moros spread out
on long tables below the porch.
Up above, party-goers took turns
painting pieces of a mural as part
of the Mural Project, directed by
Marky Pierson and Sherry
Tewell.


Sharona, Joyce and Deborah (above, left to right) were the
"gateway nymphs" greeting party goers as they came in the
front gate. Madek Parembski (above center) poses for the
camera with girlfriend and wood nymph Melissa Church.

The Studios of Key West,
which is fast becoming the cul-
tural heart of the island, is plan-
ning its second annual "One
Night Stand" for Saturday, Aug.
23. "The whole idea was it's
something just for the summer
people," says Elena Devers,
project coordinator at the
Studios. "The people who are
around need a little excitement."
Mark Hedden, a writer who
pens the birding column for the
Key West Citizen; came up with
the idea of "One Night Stand"
last year and is participating this
year as one half of a playwriting
team, along with his wife Nan
Klingener, former editor of
Solares Hill.
"One Night Stand" works
like this: Actors show up at the
yellow Armory building on
White Street on Friday night,
Aug. 22, and get their headshots
taken. And the five writers are
given the opening and closing
lines of the play, and a common

The writing teams choose

head home for an all-night writ-

the Armory at 6 a.m. (sharp!)
the next morning. Actors show
up two hours later to start doing
read-throughs of the plays, led
by directors Mike Marrero,
Juliet Gray, Rebecca Tomlinson,
Doug Shook and Chris Schultz.
Meanwhile, artists Rick
Worth, Anja Marais, Rudi

Christa Hunt, Mark P and
Michael Hawkins begin paint-

Armory's main hall.
There's a reception that night
at 7 p.m. in the sculpture garden
behind the Armory and at 8 p.m.
the curtain goes up. Marjorie
Paul Shook will emcee. Tickets
for "One Night Stand" are $10
and can be purchased at the

On the street


By MARGARETMENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

He just goes by 'Rasta' -
no last name, he says, as he
writes down his contact infor-
mation. He doesn't need one.
"I'm the king Rasta," he says
with a smile.
Rasta was riding his bike
past the Conch Shack in
Bahama Village in Key West
on Monday, wearing a black
leather vest sewn with small
shells and a black knit cap
over his dread locks. He came
to Key West in.the '90s "to
oppose the ancestral spirits of
the Henrietta Marie," he tells
the Keynoter.
Rasta had been giving lec-
tures at Clark Atlanta
University when he came
upon the story of the slave
ship, the Henrietta Marie,
which sank 34 miles off Key


West in the year 1700, killing
more than 250 chattled
Africans bound for slavery in
the New World. The story
drew him to Key West, where
he visited the Mel Fisher
Museum, where some of the
thousands of artifacts from the
wreck had been brought.
In 2001, Rasta started the
Lofton B. Sands Bahamian
museum & Resource Center
at 324 Truman Ave. The cen-
ter, which was open for four
years, was to teach ancestral
Africans living in Key West
about the YoroubA culture of
southwestern Nigeria, from
which most African-American
slaves were taken. "What we
were saying, way before we
were forced into
Christianity,... We had our
own beliefs," he says, turning
his face to show the scars on
his cheek.

Help build a new Keys reef


The public can
help in project
to restore coral
The first of five planned
opportunities in 2008 for visitors
to learn about coral reefs and
work side by side with marine
scientists to help with their
restoration is set for Aug. 24 to 28
in the Florida Keys.
"We're inviting divers to
become citizen scientists," said
Amy Slate, owner of the Amoray
Dive Resort in Key Largo, which
is hosting the first build-a-reef
excursion.
The environmental education
and advocacy trip includes three
evening lectures and three morn-
ing dives to restore staghorn
coral.
Scuba divers are to learn from
and work with coral restoration
expert Ken Nedimyer and marine
scientist Lad Akins. Respectively,
they serve as president and exec-
utive director of the Coral
Restoration Foundation.
While Nedimyer has conduct-
ed similar trips with students or
sponsoring dive clubs, this is the
first event open to the general
public.
The class sessions are to focus
on coral health, corals' function


in marine ecosystems, identifica-
tion of natural and manmade
threats to coral and means to pro-
tect the resource.
"This is something the aver-
age person can get their hands on
and do," Nedimyer said. "It
shows positive results in real
time."
After the first lecture, divers
visit the foundation's coral nurs-
ery off Key Largo, where about
2,000 growing corals lie in rows
and columns fixed by rebar on a
sandy bottom.
At the nursery, corals are start-
ed from a clipping about the
length of a knuckle and grow to
30 or 40 centimeters, Nedimyer
said. After a year on the reef, they
can grow several inches tall with
multiple branches and in five
years they are -strong, independ-
ent structures serving as habitat to
a variety of tropical fish.
The second dive showcases
corals transplanted to the reef in
2007 and 2003 at two locations
that have had outstanding sur-
vival and growth rates.
"Participants will get to see
what can happen in a year and
five years," Nedimyer said. "It's
like an adrenaline shot."
The final day, volunteer divers
acting as citizen scientists are


escorted by Nedimyer and Akins
to a site permitted by the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary
for science and research to trans-
plant 18 corals.
The Amoray Dive Resort is
offering a combination package
with lodging that starts at $502
per person for four nights, based
on double occupancy, and
includes seminars and diving. For
more details and reservations,
call.


The four remaining build-a-
reef tours open to the public in
2008 are'set for Sept. 10 to 12 and
Sept. 24-26 at Quiescence Diving
Services in Key Largo, Oct. 8 to
12 with Amoray and Oct. 29 to 31
with the Florida Keys Dive
Center in Islamorada.
For specifics on each one, call

him for the state meet.
Thirty-nine seconds from
setting the school record.
"That's definitely my
goal," said Harden, who holds
the Key West freshman and
sophomore records. His first
summer of running, he added,


has put him in a position to
have his best season.
"He had a great summer of
training," said his mentor and
Key West coach Terence
White, who expects Harden to
break the record and then, as a
senior, drop his time into the
low 16s and challenge the
long-dominant runners of
Belen Jesuit.
"As far as natural running
ability, Zach probably doesn't
have much more than anyone
else on the team," said White,
a serious runner himself. "But
he is a student of the sport and
has a great work ethic and
great mental toughness. You
can see it in a race he never
backs down."
At 5 feet 8 and 140 pounds,
Harden has added weight and
strength since his freshman
year, when his best time was
19:12. His strong legs are built
for the hilly, spongy Key West

3rd time Miranda's qualified


DIVING / From 34

but was awarded a gold for
helping get his team there.
Despatie and Miranda have
finished second or third in
every major international syn-
chronized diving meet over the
last two years. Always ahead of
them were the Chinese, now
ranked as the world's strongest
diving program.
Miranda took over as diving
coach at Founders Park in
Islamorada in 2005.
He has busy training for the
Olympics over the last several
months, but Miranda made
time to call Tavernier diver
Miles Miller, 10, before Miller
went to the recent national jun-
iors diving meet.
"He told Miles to stay confi-
dent and reminded him that
he's come a really long way as
a diver," said Lorie LaLonde


Miller, Miles' mother.
Miranda qualified as a solo
diver for the 1992 and 2000
Games, but was unable to com-
pete in either event.
. In 1992, sports officials in
his native Cuba decided since
Miranda was not likely to
medal, so they would not spend
the money to send him to
Barcelona.
After moving to Canada,
Miranda won a spot on the
Canadian team for the 2000
Games in Australia. He was in
Sydney when Cuban officials
protested his Canadian residen-
cy. The dispute prevented him
from competing.
"All kinds of crazy stuff
happened to him," Despatie
said.
Despatie, a 2004 Olympics
silver medalist off the 3-meter
board, stands among Canada's
biggest sports stars. Diving-
savvy Chinese fans mobbed


Despatie, 23, at the airport
when he and Miranda arrived
for the Olympics, acknowledg-
ing him.as one the best divers
in the world.
Adrian, who lists
Islamorada as his hometown in
Olympics biographical infor-
mation, received a gold medal
for his part in the 4x100
freestyle win, although he did
not swim the final.
He came to the Keys to train
at Founders Park with The
Race Club swimmers, coach
Mike Bottom and mentor Gary
Hall Jr.
The 6-foot-5 native of
Washington state took a leave
from competition and studies at
the University of California to
focus on the Olympics but said
he plans to return.
Bottom is leaving the Keys.
He was hired in June as the
University of Michigan's swim
coach.
