Voters speak loudly
for change on
County Commission
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Two of three Monroe County
commissioners up for re-elec-
tion were defeated by huge
margins on Tuesday as voters in
the GOP primary spoke up for
change.
Commissioner Sonny..McCoy
was defeated by first-time candi-
date Carlos Rojas 61 percent to
39 percent (3,607-2,268), and
Commissioner Dixie Spehar was
defeated by Kim Wigington 68
percent to 32 percent (4,030-
1,880).
Also in the GOP primary,
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
defeated challenger Gary
Bauman, 58 percent to 42 per-
cent, or 3,393 to 2419.
Rojas now faces Democrat
Heather Carruthers and nonaf-
filiated Sloan ]3ashinsky in the
Nov. 4 general election for the
District 3 seat. Wigington goes
against Democrat Bill Estes in
District 1. Murphy, in District
5, will face nonaffiliated Sal
Gutierrez Jr. in November.
All results are final except
for Precinct 15, which was late
in reporting. That precinct had
242 votes cast, which would not
change the results appreciably.
McCoy, appearing on
Channel 76 shortly after the


results were
read, was
both wistful
-; and proud. "I
left this thing
a lot better
than I found
it," he told
host Bill
ROJAS Becker. "I've
ROJAS left a legacy
here."
Spehar thanked everyone
who worked on her campaign.
"I extend my deepest grati-
tude for their
support and
never-give-up
attitude," she
said. "People
.* have voted
: .: for change for
--_ -?c, change's
,.- V -s a k e
Tomorrow the
WIGINGTON issues will
remain the same. -As of
November, I will not be a coun-
ty commissioner but my voice
will not be silenced. I love
Monroe County and I believe
very strongly in Monroe
County."
The losses of Spehar and
McCoy dealt a blow to Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro, as the three
comprise a voting bloc that
often favors development. In
fact, many have expressed the
sentiment that they voted just to

Lord-Papy, Williams win


They now face
each other in
general election
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@kPynoter.com

Florida Keys Mosquito
Control Board member Joan
Lord-Papy bucked the anti-
incumbent voting trend in the
Keys Tuesday by defeating Chris
Zuelch in the Democrat primary
for the District 1 seat.
Lord-Papy earned 57 percent
of the vote to Zuelch's 43 per-
cent, while Andy Williams
defeated Pat Unferth in the
Republican primary, 55 percent
to 45 percent.
The Mosquito Control Board
primaries were the two most
closely contested of all races
Tuesday.
Lord-Papy has said the district
has come a long way during her
tenure and is now one of the most
efficiently run mosquito control
organizations in the world. She
thanked those who voted for her
and asked for continuing support
in a short interview with U.S. 1
Radio's Bill Becker.
A partner in the Key West
accounting firm of Pribramsky &
Zuelch, Zuelch is a political new-
comer who has been preaching


E 20:

fiscal conser-
vatism during
:' ^his campaign.

Mosquito
Control Board
Shas been criti-

years for
LORD-PAPY allowing
Director Edsel
Fussell to accrue large reserves
and use the money for projects
such as the district's new $7.4
million building and hangar at
Florida Keys
Marathon
Airport.
Lord-Papy
says that was
forward think-
ing and notes
that the build-
.. ing is paid for
and carries no
WILLIAMS debt.
Zuelch's father Kirk once
served as Monroe County's state
attorney.
Williams' victory in the
Republican primary sets up a
repeat of the 2004 District 1 race,
which Lord-Papy won to earn her
fourth four-year term.
He has advocated bringing in
dragonflies to deal with mosquito
larvae in areas where the district


cannot spray due to bans on pes-
ticides.
In an interview with Becker,
Williams said he was counting on
winning the race against Unferth
and that he and Lord-Papy have a
mutual respect for one another.
He- said the district's budget
needs to be analyzed and that
people not machines -
should be .hired to do the district's
work.
"What we need most now is
employment," Williams said,
pointing out a struggling econo-
my.
A former systems analyst now
working for a law firm, Unferth
had focused on the district budg-
et and a stronger public education
program.
Incumbent Bill Shaw will face
nonaffiliated Daniel Zieg in the
November election for the
District 4 seat, while Mosquito
Control District Board Chairman
Stephen Smith was unopposed
for his District 3 seat and auto-
matically re-elected.
Smith said after the results
were announced Tuesday that
Lord-Papy has played an impor-
tant role in making the district
what he calls the No. 1 mosquito
control organization in North
America.
"I was pleased with the out-
come. She's done an outstanding
job," Smith said.


'Gang of Three' broken up

break up the so-called Gang of
Three
"I just want change for
Monroe County," said
Sheriff's Office Deputy Shell
Lee, who cast her vote on the
way to work at Precinct 11 on
Stock Island.
"I've seen a concerted
effort to do this. This expe-
dites my trip down to Costa
Rica," McCoy said.
"It's a privilege to be
involved in this," Wigington
said. "It's exciting to be part
of a team. But the second part
of the campaign starts tomor-
row."
Rojas, a Key West architect
and political newcomer, said
he wanted to "congratulate all
of the citizens of Monroe
County for a big victory. Not


just my race, but Kim and
Sylvia Murphy. We have a
bright future, all of us."
Murphy was celebrating.
"I am so thrilled I can't
stand it," she said. "In my
opinion, it's a clean sweep.
The people have woken up
and they didn't just wake up
- they screamed."
Bauman declined comment.
Guiterrez does not do tele-
phone interviews but said in
an e-mail that a photo on his
Web site showing him wearing
a Bauman sticker says it all.
"I want to congratulate the
winners for getting out there,"
Carruthers said. "I'd like to
thank Sonny for many years of
public service. His loss is a
real indication that people are
really ready for a significant
change."
Estes said the outcome of
the primary doesn't much


phase his campaign to win in
November.
"My whole campaign has
been based on the fact that I'm
not running against any gang
on the commission," he said.
"I'm running strictly for the
position. People have been
asking me for the last six
months: Who do you want to
win the primary? I say it real-
ly doesn't matter to me."
Voters in Key West's
Precinct 7 had to move from
the Moose Lodge on
Eisenhower Drive to Fire
Station I on North Roosevelt
Boulevard due to a Monday
fire that closed the building.
Signs helped redirect voters.
'.I've voted all my life,"
Bertha Miller said after cast-
ing her vote at the fire station.
"I saw the signs and came to
vote."

Davis rolls


over Mandina


Republican
now facing three
in November
By SEAN KINNEY
Keynoter Contributor

Republican Monroe County
sheriff candidate Ken Davis
handily defeated Phil Mandina
in Tuesday's GOP primary,
sending Davis into the Nov. 4
general election to face
Democrat Bob Peryam and
non-affiliated Bob Horan and
Sandra Downs.
"We worked very hard from
Day 1. I want to thank every-
one that opened their doors to
us," said Davis, who walked
the length of the Keys during
his campaign. "We'll continue
walking door to door. We look
forward to the November race;
it's just begun."
Mandina declined comment.
With all but one precinct
reporting, Davis received 4,002
votes to Mandina's 1,810.
That's 68.86 percent to 31.14
percent.
The precinct not reporting,
No. 15, held 242 votes, which
would not appreciably change
the results.
Davis, a 52-year-old Fort
Myers native, has run on evalu-
ating the Sheriff's Office budg-
et in an effort to trim the fat;
the budget "needs a line-by-
line review; it hasn't been done
in 20 years," he said.
Mandina, who was running
for sheriff for the fourth time,
also ran on a platform of look-
ing at the budget. He favors a
citizen oversight board for the
Sheriff's Office; Davis says
one isn't needed if the agency
.is working correctly.
Davis and most others -
sees Peryam has his strongest
opponent in November. Peryam
has been with the Sheriff's
Office for 27 years, while
Horan and Downs have no law
enforcement experience.
Downs' family owns a
Cudjoe Key tree-trimming
business and Horan, who has
previously run for sheriff as
well as state representative, is a
cook at Leigh Ann's Coffee
House in Marathon.


"I'm not
running
against any-
body; I'm
running for
the office of
sheriff,"
Peryam said.
"It's a tough
DAVIS job. I'm look-
ing forward
to the future, ready to get out
there and start getting real
active, real aggressive."
Davis said he feels dispari-
ties between the pay of
deputies and upper-level per-
sonnel is in desperate need of
adjustment, saying that in the
past 15 years, deputies' pay has
increased 40 percent while
administrative and upper-level
salaries have increased 300
percent.
Davis says the disconnect
between deputies and the
administration has created a
"them vs. us attitude in the
Sheriff's Office .... Have and
have not."
He has 30 years of experi-
ence in various branches of law
enforcement, including:
Special agent in the U.S.
Coast Guard Intelligence
Service investigating .interna-
tional smuggling.
+ U.S. Drug Enforcement
Agent in charge of the Keys
field office.
+ Resident Agent in Charge
of Operation Alliance guarding
the U.S./Mexican border.
Peryam has said he has some'
ideas for change for the depart-
ment.
"I think we're coming into
some pretty tough economic
times," he has said. "We need
someone with experience that
knows and understands the his-
tory of the office and the com-
munity."
Peryam grew up in
Michigan, where he started his
law enforcement career. He
said he was laid off in the early
1980s because of economic
hard times. He came to the
Keys and started as a patrol
deputy working his way up to,
now, district commander for
the Middle Keys and chief of
police for Marathon,


Slaton, Vanden Brook in runoff


Judicial hopefuls
gain most votes
among five
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Tuesday's primary left two
Key West-based candidates in
the -running for the Group 4
seat on the Monroe County
Circuit Court: Mary Vanden
Brook and Tegan Slaton.
They'll face a runoff in the
Nov. 4 general election.
With all but one precinct
reporting, Vanden Brook-took
3,868 votes, or 31.8 percent.
Tegan Slaton earned 4,379
votes 36 percent of the
total.
"Both candidates bring a
strong history in Monroe
County to the table, and both
have been involved in family
court proceedings.
Vanden Brook, 52, worked
as the Monroe County Circuit
Court administrator for the
past three years. She stepped
down to run for the judge's
seat. She previously managed
the family court, and headed
up the guardian ad litem pro-
gram in the 1990s. She had a
private practice in Key West


and has been
both a trial
attorney and
a public
defender.
B ." I m
proud of
everybody
who worked
SLATON on my cam-
SLATON paign, and
I'm thrilled," said Vanden
Brook. "Now we can talk
about- what's really at stake
- the future of the courts."
Slaton, 50, also has a long
history in

County's
family court
K I system. He's
w worked in
the Public
Defender's
Office;
served as a
VANDEN BROOK special mag-
istrate for the city of -Key
West and the Circuit Court.
He also worked in child sup-
port enforcement from 2002
to 2007. "I'm ecstatic about
winning the majority of the
votes," Slaton told the
Keynoter. "It's a hard race to
win but I'm going to


Louisville and not Disneyland
for the Ryder Cup."
Candidates who didn't
make the cut are:
Jiulio Margalli with 457
votes or 3.76 percent.
Manny Madruga with
2,273 or 18.71 percent.
Richard Behr with 1,172
or 9.65 percent.
Voters will decide in the
November election who will
replace retiring Chief Judge
Sandra Taylor Slaton or
Vanden Brook. Taking the
Group 4 seat, however, does-
n't automatically make the
winner either chief judge or
the family court judge. The
role of chief judge is deter-
mined annually, decided by
all of the judges, and case-
loads are also divided by a
mutual decision by all of the
judges.
On May 2, judges ,Mark
Jones and Luis Garcia were
reelected during qualifying,
as they had no challengers.
Jones holds the Group 1 seat
and Garcia is the Group 3
judge.
The annual salary for a
Circuit Court judge is
$145,080.
Circuit Court judges serve
a six-year term.


Mathewson wins in a walk


School Board
member returns
for second term
By DAVID BALL,
dball@keysreporter.com

Monroe County School
Board member Duncan
Mathewson will return to his
District 3 seat for a second
four-year term after easily
winning re-election over
opponent Matt Cochran.
Mathewson received nearly
63 percent of the vote to
Cochran's 37 percent with all
but one Keys precinct report-
ing by press time Tuesday
night. The race was nonparti-
san.
Both Mathewson and
Cochran did not return calls
for comment after the polls
closed.
Overall, 7,386 voters cast


Mathewson
and 4,394 for
Cochran,
with 242
votes in
Precinct 15
j .not counted
_ ,,, because of
MATHEWSON late report-
ing.
Fellow School Board
incumbent Andy Griffiths
returns for a fifth term in his
District 2 seat, as he drew no
opponents during qualifying.
Griffiths said although he
missed campaigning, he was
grateful to return as the
board's longest-serving mem-
ber. He also said he was watch-
ing the -Mathewson-Cochran
race closely to see how many
voters chose not to vote in that,
election.
"I heard from people who


wanted an alternative to the
incumbent, but they could not
bring themselves to vote for
the challenger," Griffiths said.
"I guess he [Cochran] wanted
to see what you could get with
just a name on the ballot."
Cochran kept well out of
the public eye during the cam-
paign, not appearing at public
forums and not responding to
media requests for interviews.
For Mathewson, the win
was a landslide compared to
his first race in 2004, when he
beat incumbent Pat Labrada
by 87 votes, or about half a
percent. In that same race,
Griffiths beat challenger
Michael McPherson by 5,292
votes, finishing with 65.7 per-
cent of the vote.
Both Mathewson and
Griffiths will be sworn in at
the school board's organiza-
tional meeting on Nov. 18 in
Key West.

Di Gennaro steps down from elections board


He takes step
to avoid any
look of conflict
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro stepped down from
the county's elections canvass-
ing board Monday one day
before the primary election -
and was replaced by county Tax
Collector Dee Dee Henriquez.
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer said he had heard com-


plaints that Di
Gennaro host-
ed a fundraiser
for Dixie
Spehar, the
incumbent
GOP candi-
date for the



board, which certifies the
Di GENNARO
Commission
seat. They proved untrue but Di
Gennaro resigned to avoid an
appearance of conflict.
Until Monday morning, the
board, which certifies the

authenticity of voters' ballots,
comprised Di Gennaro, Sawyer
and County Judge Wayne Miller.
"I did not want to cause any
confusion whatsoever," Di
Gennaro told the Keynoter. "My
wife attended a fundraiser, then
donated pictures to a local paper.
That was misconstrued, but the
paper has since printed a correc-
tion. But in the meantime, I fig-
ured it was best to withdraw to
avoid any misperceptions."
By law, the canvassing board
is supposed to comprise a coun-
ty commissioner, a judge and
one other local elected official.
"If the mayor cannot sit on
the canvassing board because
[he or she is] up for election or
actively participates] in a cam-
paign, then it goes to the County
Commission to appoint one out
of their group," said Miller, the
canvassing board's presiding
officer.
Commissioners Sonny
McCoy and Sylvia Murphy, like
Spehar, ran in Tuesday's GOP
primary and therefore can't sit
on the board.
With Di Gennaro out, that left
Commissioner George Neugent.
But he supported the campaign


of Kim Wigington, Spehar's
opponent Tuesday, so he, too,
can't serve due to a conflict.
"It's obvious I have an inter-
est in Kim's campaign, though
this year I've stayed out of it
because I didn't want to appear
involved," Neugent said. But he
said he told Miller "there was at
least an appearance I'm support-
ing Kim."
That left Miller to find some-
one to serve other than a county
commissioner. He could have
chosen Chief Judge Sandra
Taylor, but she in turn named
Henriquez to the board at 10:30
a.m.
Then, Miller said, the work of
certifying early and absentee
ballots began.
Sawyer, a Republican, will
have to step down from the
board himself after the primary
because he's running for re-elec-
tion in the general election.
"Judge Taylor will have to
make that appointment for me,"
he said. "I will act in an adviso-
ry capacity."

Precinct moved
After the fire over the can-
vassing board erupted and was


extinguished, a real fire broke
out forcing voters in
Precinct 7 to vote elsewhere
Tuesday.
A fire at the Moose Club at
700 Eisenhower Drive in Key
West Monday afternoon
forced those who vote there,
which is Precinct 7 in. Monroe
County, to instead vote at,
ironically, Fire Station No. 1,
1600 N. Roosevelt Blvd.
"The fire itself was rela-
tively minor and was deter-
mined to be electrical in
nature," city Fire Marshal
Mike Davila said. "As a result,
the city determined it was nec-
essary to cut power to the
building."
The fire was in the riser,
which is the metal pole that
goes from the roof down the
side of the building to the top
of the electrical meter. ;
"There is no holdup on our
end," Keys Energy Services
spokesman Julio Barroso said.
Rather, Terry Richardson, the
city's electrical inspector,
ordered the power to remain
off until the Moose can get
repairs done, Barroso said.

for four bodies


IDs, source
of the corpses
remain unknown
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Clues in the watery, deaths of
four men found off the Florida
Keys late last week come down
to this: A ring, a shoe and a tat-
too.
Autopsies conducted Monday
didn't determine the causes of
death, the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office reported.
All four bodies found
Thursday and Friday off
Islamorada and Key Largo were
badly decomposed and scav-
enged by sharks.
"There were no signs of trau-
ma to the bodies aside from the
damage done by marine life,"
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said.
Investigators don't know who
the men were or where they
came from. But they likely died
Aug. 14 or 15, quite possibly in
the same boating accident,
detectives believe..
All four men were essentially
nude when found, which didn't
surprise detectives.
"Our lead investigator,
Detective Terry Smith, also is a
member of the Sheriff's Office
dive team," Herrin said.
"Detective Smith says it's amaz-
ing how fast clothes fall off a
body in the water, so the lack of
clothing is not considered a sig-
nificant issue."
The only clothing found was
a single sock and athletic shoe
found on the victim located off
Elbow Reef Friday, northern-
most of the three grisly finds.
Other evidence consists of "a
distinctive ring" worn by the
first victim discovered, found
near the. Channel 5 Bridge
Thursday, and a tattoo on the last
body found, off Tavernier
Friday.
"Detectives declined to be
more specific about the tattoo or
ring, choosing to withhold that
information in hopes it will help
them narrow down an identifica-
tion, Herrin said.
The autopsies, conducted by


Dr. Mark Shuman of the Miami-
Dade Medical Examiner's
Office, did result in some usable
fingerprints that will be checked
against available records.
As of Tuesday, the U.S. Coast
Guard still hadn't found reports
of overdue boats or missing
boaters that may be traced to the
four bodies, said Petty Officer
Jennifer Johnson from the
agency's Miami public informa-
tion office.
The Coast Guard conducted a
general search last week "seek-
ing a boat or any evidence that
might correlate to the four bod-
ies," Johnson said. "It was to no
avail."
The four bodies were discov-
ered in a 24-hour period, from
4:22 p.m. Thursday to 4:01 p.m.
Friday. The last two were found
less than half an hour apart.
Recounting what is known:
A lobster fisherman spotted
the first body around 4:22 p.m.
Thursday about a mile off the
Channel-5 Bridge, around mile
marker 71. An autopsy showed
the victim to be a man of medi-
um build, about 5-foot-10 with
black hair a couple of inches
long. He was wearing a ring on
his left hand.
A commercial fisherman
flagged down a recreational
boater from Sanford to radio the
Coast Guard at 9:53 a.m. Friday
about the second body. It was in
poor condition but later listed as
a slim man, about 5-7, who had
reddish brown hair that was
about 6 to 8 inches long.
The third report came in at
3:34 p.m. Friday, about 25 to 30
miles north of the first two bod-
ies. The remains of a man about
5-foot-7 were found offshore
near Elbow Reef. The body held
a single sock and athletic shoe.
Before the recovery boat
had returned from the Elbow,
officials were alerted to the
fourth body at 4:01 p.m. Friday,
about 1.5 miles off Tavernier.
Little skin or muscle
remained on his arms or legs,
although he was the victim with
the tattoo. The man was
described as slim, standing
around 5-foot-10. He had medi-
um-length black hair, about 4
inches long.

Keys Opinion


New elected officials

will inherit headaches

Congratulations to all the candidates who ran in Tuesday's
primary election.
To those who won, we also add condolences if they continue
to advance and win in November. That's because they'll be fac-
ing the toughest budget times in recent memory.
The Monroe County Commission faces the most daunting
task, trying to stop the financial bleeding long enough to find a
pulse and hope the patient can recover.
There's only one month left before the 2008-09 fiscal year
begins Oct. 1, and the county finds itself still $5 million to $6
million short of a balanced budget.
This despite initial approval last month for a tax rate that's
9.95 percent over the rollback rate so high it would require
a four-fifths vote to approve in September. So this won't wait
for the November election to resolve.
One of the challenges tossed at new County Administrator
Roman Gastesi was figuring out where all the money went.
County taxes had grown from $53.1 million in 2000-01 to $87
million in the proposed 2008-09 budget.
A lot of that big spending came because Keys property val-
ues increased by double-digits each year. Well, that real estate
boom is over and those holding elected office the next two
years will find it a lot tougher to keep spending in check and
budgets balanced.
A big jump came in 2005-06, when the commission approved
big raises across the board this was right after the 2004 elec-
tions.
Additional spending on top of that ate away the county's
rainy-day reserves. What used to be a financial cushion of $15
million'on a $60 million tax levy has now shrunk below $7 mil-
lion on a proposed $87 million levy.
That will force tough choices on whoever sits on the dais
come November.
One example: Gastesi has recommended no raises for the
Sheriff's Office next year. He says that can save taxpayers
$808,000. He's got another $5 million or so in other savings
identified, including cuts in county transit, reducing contribu-
tions for health plans, further cuts in welfare services.
But each time he proposes something to cut, the elected com-
mission gets cold feet. And it's the commissioners, not staff,
who make the final call.
Whoever wins the November races for County Commission
or for any elected post on a taxing authority board faces tough
choices ahead.
This much is clear: We can't afford any more of the spend-
thrift ways of the past. There's no more blood to give.

Stormwater outfalls need immediate attention


EDITOR:
The nearshore waters from South Beach at
the end of Duval Street to the White Street
Pier in Key West, including Higgs Beach,
comprise the Key West Marine Park, which
was started up for the city by Reef Relief
and has now been turned over to the city of
Key West to maintain.
-It features no-motor zones so swimmers
can enjoy the area without being run over by
watercraft. A series of demarcation buoys
marks vessel access lanes so that boats can
get to shore and out. Educational signs have
been installed and a brochure educates visi-
tors to the park about the incredible diversity
of marine life in our nearshore waters and
how to protect them.
This could be a world-class water park for
our residents and visitors except for one
thing. The beaches are regularly posted with
advisories against swimming due to high
bacteria counts that make swimming in the
water dangerous. There are many factors, but


one fact is clear: There are eight direct out-
falls that discharge thousands of gallons of
polluted stormwater directly into the waters
of the Key West Marine Park.
So if the city is interested in providing a
shoreline experience, it should place a high
and immediate priority in funding to retrofit
the storm drains in that area so swimmers
can use the Key West Marine Park. Reef
Relief supports the city's stormwater plan,
but urges it to consider this a priority for the
short term above all other areas of the city.
By improving water quality in the
nearshore water, the city will improve our
quality of life. Visitors that come to Key
West expect to be able to enjoy our beaches;
this would also enhance our tourist product.
So this would be our priority for any funds
the city is considering allocating for this
shoreline.

College president has made remarkable progress


EDITOR:
I write to express my satisfaction with the
progress being made at Florida Keys
Community College. Dr. Jill Landesberg-
Boyle was hired not long after I took office
on the Monroe. County School Board.
After years of a steady stream of declin-
ing enrollment, a decline that threatened the
school's very existence, Dr. Boyle was able
to achieve an enrollment jump of 11 percent
in her first year. At this year's high school
graduations, I was struck by how many of
our seniors had chosen to enroll at FKCC.
Perhaps this is because of the improvements
that have been made in class availability, the
vast improvements and upgrades in techno-
logical support and new instructional equip-
ment, additions of new curricular options, or
perhaps even such sublime changes as the
availability of online applications.
The increased enrollment and fiscal
improvements that have been made under
Dr. Boyle's direction have enabled the col-
lege's trustees to award a minimum of a 6
percent raise to all faculty and staff, this
while many other colleges throughout the
state have had to lay off employees. The col-
lege has a balanced budget with revenues
equaling expenses and the college's fund
balance remains at a healthy and secure
level.
Dr. Boyle inherited a $700,000 budget to
improve an outdated and worn marine
propulsion building, but through her effec-
tive lobbying, she was able to turn that into
a $4 million new building for the students.
In addition, she has secured approval for a
new campus site in Key Largo, and is work-
ing with renowned landscape architect
Raymond Jungles on a xeriscape landscaping
project to enhance the campus.
She and state Rep. Ron Saunders lobbied
the state and secured new legislation allow-


ing the college to build dormitories. Private
donors have come forward and several new
gifts, including one in the amount of
$200,000, have affirmed that this community
is cheering her on in her endeavor to take a
school that was not too long ago on accredi-
tation warning status.
The change process has not been easy.
From the very beginning, it was clear that
not everyone within the college wanted a
change in direction, and some employees are
no longer at the college. However, at the end
of the day, Dr. Boyle and the board of
trustees have had the courage to steadfastly
hold onto their visions and move forward,
even in the face of naysayers and detractors
who were quite comfortable with the way
things were.
Steven Pibramsky, chairman
Monroe County School Board

The kids were busting a move at the dance party to kick off
the new school year.

Dance party great way to start


EDITOR:
I want to take this opportunity
to say thank you to the Marathon
Parks and Recreation
Department for hosting a totally
free dance party for all kids from
kindergarten through fifth grade.
Ali Adams from the city organ-
ized the event and had Sam the
D.J. playing music and holding
dance contests for the kids.
For the non-dancers, there
were kickball and soccer games
in the fields. Stanley Switlik
Elementary School's Parent
Teacher Organization brought
popcorn and sno cones for
everyone and Cristiano's Cafe
and Catering graciously donat-


ed the hot dogs.
This event really showcased
our community park that we are
so proud of. More than 200
people showed up at the party,
which was geared to kick off
our new school year. The kids
had a great time dancing the
evening away on the amphithe-
ater stage and I would say we,
the parents, had a great time
getting together watching our
kids' dance moves and wonder-
ing where they got them from.
Here's to another great
school year.

Heritage trail is better than road


EDITOR:
On Aug. 5, the state
Department of Transportation
hosted a public hearing at the
Holiday Inn Key Largo on its
five-year plan to resurface U.S.
1, including plans to construct
a 10-foot fifth line (shoulder)
from mile marker 92 to 106.
The public, in a show of hands
in an overwhelming majority,
voted against the fifth lane and
made some very valid points.
Monroe County comprehen-
sive plan policy 301.41 states,
"The capacity of U.S. 1 in
unincorporated Monroe County
shall not exceed four lanes."
Wider roads encourage
higher speeds. DOT itself
states that wider shoulders are
ill advised because they invite
dangerous driving. The citizens
have participated in a Livable
CommuniKeys plan for Key
Largo that did not include a
fifth lane and more concrete
and asphalt that would be
unsafe for bikers and walkers.
The fifth lane is not wanted
or needed by the citizens of
Key Largo. An alternative plan
would be to do away with the
10-foot lane in the five-year


plan and in its place provide for
a state-of-the-art overseas her-
itage bike path, or shared-use
trail, as DOT has expressed it.
This trailway should be a mini-
mum 12 feet wide and under
extreme constraints in some
sections would provide eight
feet of width. This is minimum
recommendation in DOT
Bicycle Facilities Planning and
Design Handbook. This bike-
way/shared use trail would
have flood drainage and a barri-
er to protect bikers and walkers-
from traffic.
At the present time, a
Greenway Heritage Trail is
being worked on by the city of
Homestead and Miami-Dade
County. This trail will link
Biscayne National Park with
Everglades National Park.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we
could connect these parks with
the Overseas Highway heritage
trail all the way across the fab-
ulous Florida Keys to its final
destination in Key West? This
would be a world-class heritage
trail that would attract national
and international visitors.

Village finally facing


its sewer obligation


There are four ways leaders can approach an
issue. They can choose to ignore it, study it,
attack it or resolve it. When it comes to the
wastewater issue, Islamorada has exercised
the first three tactics. But at long last, the vil-
lage is ready to resolve the problem.
The Islamorada Village Council took a bold
step Aug. 7 when we unanimously passed a
preliminary rate resolution allowing the vil-
lage to continue to move forward and begin
funding planning development for a vil-
lagewide wastewater system. There is no
longer a question whether
Islamorada will meet its obligation
to provide sewers. Accordingly,
last week property owners in the
village received a notice of intent
to assess $631 per parcel for
wastewater treatment improve-
ments.
First, let me assure you the
Village Council understands how
hard people work to take care of
their families in this community
and as public officials it's our job
to see Islamorada is careful to pro-
tect your hard-earned money. We Islamora
will continue to work hard, making Cathi

of leadership is knowing when to she was
give up on a failed idea. And my a seco
insistence to hold the state's feet to
the fire on this unfunded mandate
is, disappointingly, a failed idea.
The $631 per property assessment is an
enormous advance in resolving our waste-
water problem. It will generate approximately
$2.5 million for planning, engineering, admin-
istration and land acquisition. Given time con-
straints, the assessment methodology had to
be efficient, while still being fair as possible.
The truth is, the data analysis needed to
determine equivalent dwelling units vil-
lagewide, based on specific water usage, was
never done. And there was not data "clean"
enough and readily available for the village to
certify the assessment to the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office by the Sept. 15
deadline. However, next year, the parcel-by-
parcel analysis should be completed so future
assessments are on an EDU basis, rather than
a uniform fee for each parcel.
Even still, the assessment could have been
constructed in a variety of ways. However,
our expert staff gave the council several
modes to choose from, all tailored to
Islamorada. For example, understanding our
community depends on the survival of small

toflrist-based establishments, we chose an
assessment method that will be the least cut-
ting to our small-business owners.
Important to note, this initial payment will
ultimately be credited toward property own-
ers' final assessment. At the end of the day,
regardless of grant funding for specific proj-
ects, every customer EDU will pay the same
amount per connection and per EDU. The
important point here is the $631 per-parcel
expense is essentially a down payment on
clean waters for our children and grandchil-
dren.
-I So where do we go from here?
The cost of building the balance
of the wastewater system is likely
greater than the originally estimat-
ed -$115 million due to inflation.
However, we are hopeful this will
be offset by increased competition
,. among contractors due to the slow-
down in other new construction.
Even still, there will also be opera-
tion and maintenance cost, yet to
be determined.
However, we understand what a
ta Mayor dollar means and are working con-
lill is a scientiously to keep the monthly

The current council does not
have the luxury of time previous
councils had. We can almost count
. on our fingers and toes the months until the
July 2010 state deadline to sewer the Keys.
Going backwards, revisiting alternatives dis-
cussed eight years ago or more, is not an
option. The wasted two years and quarter mil-
lion dollars considering a Key Largo pipeline
demonstrated what happens when we go off
course.
All five of us who sit on the dais Thursday
evenings knew we would be making these
exigent decisions when we-threw our hats in
the ring. But I'm proud to say your Village
Council made the right and practical decision.
Goodness knows I never thought I'd be
giddy over wastewater. We've seen
Islamorada ignore, study and attack the waste-
water issue. However, I am proud to sit with a
council that has the grit to finally resolve our
wastewater problem.
Nevertheless, the Village Council under-
stands the financial plight many families in
our community are facing; we understand the
value of a dollar and we are taking our
responsibilities very seriously.

Toner: Disaster
doesn't always
mean damage
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Tropical Storm Fay apparent-
ly hit the Keys harder than most
people thought.
President Bush on Sunday
declared Monroe County a disas-
ter area due to the massive
amount of rainfall from Fay on
Aug. 18 and 19.
That means federal and state
financial aid will be used to sup-
plement local recovery efforts,
even though the Keys sustained
little damage other than some
flooding.
The total sought by Keys gov-
ernments: $2.15 million.
Just three other Florida coun-
ties were designated disaster
areas: St. Lucie, Okeechobee and
Brevard.
Monroe County Emergency
Management Director Irene
Toner said the county and its
municipalities have filed initial
damage assessment reports with
the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. FEMA
employees will visit to assess the
damage and decide which
requests to grant, Toner said.
FEMA is authorized to provide
equipment and resources at its dis-
cretion to alleviate the impacts of
disasters. Debris removal and
emergency protective measures,
such as additional staffing among
emergency workers, are reim-
bursed at 75 percent of approved
costs. The state and either the
county or municipalities split the
remaining 25 percent.
Toner said that while the des-
ignation doesn't sound good for
the Keys, it does enable the coun-
ty and municipalities to recover
money spent preparing for and
recovering from Fay.
"What we do is ask all the
county departments and munici-
palities and the Sheriff's Office to
provide us with damage assess-
ment reports," she said. "The
money that was spent in prepara-
tion for response ... we would
receive the money back."
"When you say disaster, it
doesn't mean the Keys have to be


reported no damages as yet.
Marathon Fire Rescue Capt.
Lisa Watson put the city's prelim-
inary damage assessment togeth-
er. She said the $1.2 million fig-
ure will likely change as the
FEMA process progresses.
"We took a fairly good hit on
the beaches with the seaweed and
the beaches getting washed out,"
Watson said. "Then emergency
protective measures, and finally
Sombrero Boulevard, we had
saltwater intrusion in the
roadbed."
In Key West, damage to
beaches will apparently make up
the majority of the city's
$605,380 tab. Annalise Mannix,
Key West manager of Engineer-
ing Services and Environmental
Programs, said beach erosion is
costly to repair.
"Beach erosion is one of those
things that is expensive, so that's
probably the only reason we got
the declaration," Mannix said. "I
didn't think we'd have that much
damage."

knocked out," she said. "It means
recouping money expended on
response to the storm and any-
thing else."
According to Toner's office,
the following damage figures have
been submitted to FEMA by the
county and Keys municipalities:
$248,200 from Monroe
County.
$95,500 from Key Colony
Beach.
$605,380 from Key West.

Gustav only small threat


The hurricane
poses little
threat to Keys
Keynoter Staff


Hurricane Gustav's maxi-
mum sustained winds decreased
Tuesday afternoon as the storm
moved northwest over the
southwestern portion of Haiti
but it was expected to
restrengthen today as it contin-
ues moving.
The track late Tuesday indi-
cated the storm would stay south
of Cuba and pose little threat to


the Keys other than rainfall in
the Middle and Lower Keys.
However, the forecast depends
on what it does once it moves
back over water.
The Category 1 hurricane had
sustained winds near 75 mph,
with tropical storm winds
extending out up to 70 miles. It
was moving around 10 mph.
Gustav, the season's seventh
tropical cyclone, quickly
strengthened from a tropical
storm to a hurricane ,early
Tuesday in the Caribbean Sea.
Keys and South Florida resi-
dents watching Gustav first saw


the region placed in the center of
the NHC forecast "cone."
Forecasters have gradually shift-
ed the track forecast south and
west as computer models have
indicated the storm would move
more westward, remaining south
of Cuba for the most part.
On the current forecast track,
Gustav would be about 180
miles southwest of Key West at
its closest point of approach on
Saturday night as it moves west-
ward just south of the south-
coast of Cuba.
Meanwhile, NHC forecasters
are watching three other areas of
potential tropical cyclone devel-
opment in the open Atlantic.

tery and assault on a law enforce-
ment'officer. He also had a war-
rant for his arrest from Miami-
Dade County, dated Aug. 25, for
fleeing and eluding police, and
resisting arrest.
Anthony Fernandez, 49, of
Key West was arrested shortly
after 3 a.m. Monday in Tavernier
on charges of fleeing and eluding
police, running a red light, speed-
ing and driving with a suspended
license.
Here's what happened in both
instances, according to Monroe
County Sheriff's office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin:
In the Warren case, Sgt. Derek
Paul spotted the suspect south-
bound at mile marker 99 at 3:30
a.m. Tuesday as Warren was trav-
eling at more than 100 mph,
deputies say.
Paul pulled behind him and
radioed ahead for other deputies
to be aware of the situation, and
used his spotlight to illuminate


the rear of the motorcycle so he
could see the tag.
As he approached mile marker
90, Paul turned on his lights and
siren. Deputy Joel Slough and
others joined the pursuit south-
bound.
Deputy Kenneth Brand was at
mile marker 87 and clocked the
motorcycle in of 1J5 mph, then
began to follow with his lights
and siren on. Sgt. Tom Kiffney,
who was at the Islamorada sub-
station, ordered deputies to stop
the pursuit in hopes the motorcy-
cle would slow.
Brand continued southbound
without his lights and siren and,
at mile marker 81.5, saw the
motorcycle, now northbound,
turn off U.S. 1 onto the old high-
way. He turned his lights and
siren back on, pulling in front of
the motorcycle.
Kiffney arrived and the motor-
cycle tried to go around his cruis-
er. Instead, it collided -with the
side bumper. At that point, the
motorcycle went down in gravel.
Herrin said Kiffney and Brand
both had to Taser Warren, who
struggled to avoid arrest. He was
finally taken into custody.
In the Fernandez case, Deputy
Lee Cowart was on patrol at 3
a.m. near U.S. 1 and Bessie Road
in Tavernier when he saw a
Dodge pickup run a red light. He
turned on his lights and siren in
an attempt to stop the truck but
the truck spend northbound at 75
mph in a 45 mph zone.
Suddenly, the truck swerved
sharply into the Tavernier Towne


parking lot at mile marker 91 and
pulled to a stole. The deputy saw
the driver jump out, run around
the truck and open the passenger
door before walking slowly to the
front of the truck.
A check on the driver,
Fernandez, revealed he had his
driver's license suspended indefi-
nitely.

College lays out grand plans


A new name,
a new campus
in the works
By SEAN KINNEY
Keynoter Contributor

A new name and a push to
offer four-year bachelor's
degrees filled out Monday night's
meeting of the Florida Keys
Community College board.
College President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle also revealed
plans for $13.8 million in capital
spending, including new class-
room buildings on the Stock


Island main campus and acquir-
ing a new campus site in Key
Largo. Currently the college
operates out of Coral Shores
High School in Tavernier in the
Upper Keys.
The board did postpone action
on plans to seek outside funding
for construction of an on-campus
dormitory to house out-of-county
students.
Ann Henderson, vice presi-
dent of the college board, said the

"This is going to consume us,"
she said, "and we don't have time
to be consumed. Table this until
the foundation board has had a
chance to meet and organize."
Trustees voted to table the item
until October, and asked the col-
lege staff to develop a charter for
a direct-support organization that
could oversee the dorm project.
On another front, Landesberg-
Boyle touted a 15 percent
increase in full-time student
enrollment measured between
fall 2007 and the start of fall
classes this year. That enrollment
rose from 262 students to nearly
300 full-time equivalents, she
reported.
Because most FKCC students
take classes part-time, the actual
head count of students grew from
1,053 last year to 1,107 on the lat-
est census.
"We had. so much growth, it's
hard to believe," she told the
b6ard. She said the enrollment
growth is a "tribute to the amount
of work that faculty and staff are
doing."
The discussion about changing
the college's name was tied to a

push for offering some bachelor's
degrees in four-year programs.
Michael McPherson, director
of continuing education and dis-
tance learning, is heading the
effort to begin a bachelor's
degree in applied science in busi-
ness starting in August 2009.
McPherson said other com-
munity colleges in Florida have
moved down that path, citing St.
Petersburg College (formerly St.
Petersburg Community College),
which now offers 20 four-year
degree programs.
During Monday's meeting, the
trustees were given several ideas
for changing the name, including
Florida Keys College and
College of the Florida Keys.
"We're simply changing out
name to better reflect the product
we're offering," college spokes-
woman Lydia Estenoz said.
The board approved five proj-
ects for capital spending in 2009-
10; all depend on state funding:
A new building for physical
education and applied arts in Key
West.
A new vocation classroom
building in Key West.
Remodeling of the old
Marine Propulsion facilities.
Widespread renovations to
address American with
Disabilities Act issues.
The Upper Keys campus site.

Inmates evacuated

following sabotage

in jail kitchen


No suspects yet
stemming from
monoxide fumes
Keynoter Staff
Authorities on Tuesday con-
tinued trying to find out who
tampered with an oven in a
kitchen at the Keys' main jail
Sunday, setting off carbon
monoxide alarms and causing
the evacuation of some inmates
and jail staff.
So far, detectives have found
"nothing new," says Becky
Herrin, spokeswoman for the
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
The alarms, which went off
at 7:15 a.m. Sunday at the
detention center on Stock
Island, "may have averted a
potential explosion and fire,"
she says.
She said the alarms sounded
as a crew of inmates on kitchen
duty was beginning to prepare
lunch for the day. Everyone
was evacuated from that area
and the jail was put in lock-
down status in case a further
evacuation became necessary.
The Key West Fire Department
responded.

sophisticated detection equip-
ment and found some fumes
had reached the intake/release
area; they evacuated everyone
from that area, as well.
Investigators found that the
propane gas in the oven had
been left "very slightly on" and
a piece of clothing had been
stuffed into the back of it, along
with a container of a potential-
ly flammable substance, Herrin
said.
"The Fire Department deter-
mined that this tampering could
have caused a fire at the least,
and potentially could have
caused an explosive situation,"
said Maj. Tommy Taylor, com-
manding officer of the Sheriff's
Office Detention Division.
The alarms were installed
after a tourist died from carbon
monoxide poisoning at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort
in Key West.
On Dec. 27, 2006, Thomas
Lueders, 26, of Washington,
D.C., died after staying in
Room 416 at the resort. The
fumes came from a neighboring
boiler room.
The Lueders family is suing
the DoubleTree and its parent
company.

County to reissue RFP for airport hotels


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Monroe County officials want
a do-over.
Not happy with responses to a
request for proposals to build
hotels at the Marathon and Key
West airports, the county will
again ask developers to submit
hotel plans for either airfield.
"We're looking for specifics,"
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro said.


Last summer, he came up with
the idea for hotels at Key West
International and Florida Keys
Marathon airports. RFPs went out
this past March and were
returned in July.
One response was for a 19-
story, 182-foot hotel in Key West
- far above both the county and
city building height limits of 35
feet.


Keys Federal
mCRsEDIT UNION
Membership is REWARDING


"They'll have to comply with
density restrictions, height lim-
its," Di Gennaro said of new bids.
"We don't want anything going
out there like last time."
The new RFP is being crafted
and will be made public in the
next several weeks.
When the County Commission
issued the initial RFP, it was
' intentionally vague so applicants
would find out for themselves
what local law allows; County

I" NCUAi


Engineer David Koppel said.
The resulting proposals
ranged from the 19-story Hilton
proposed by the Philadelphia-
based PRA Management Corp. to
more modest three-story hotels
for both airports.
"Let me make it very clear: A
19-story hotel isn't going to hap-
pen," County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said.
"We're trying to get more spe-
cific information together this
time," Koppel. "The first time we
didn't have a height requirement;
we simply left it to the respon-
.dents to do their own homework
to figure out what would be per-
missible."
The five proposals, two for
Marathon and three for Key West,
came before the County
Commission in July. At that time,
the commission decided to hold
off discussions until the cities
weighed in.
Although the county actually
owns the land where the build-
ings would sit, the commissioners
agreed they want buy-in from
both the Key West City
Commission and the Marathon
City Council.



|R^ 6g^


Marathon has not yet seen a
presentation. Last week, Key
West officials did and commis-
sioners said they are fine with the
idea as long as the chosen
developer goes through the nor-
mal permitting process and
abides by all laws and regula-
tions, including height and densi-
ty requirements.
Jodi Weinhofer, president of
the Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West, says
her members agree that develop-
ers need to be on an even playing
field with existing hoteliers.
"We support the county using
its land in the best and highest
use," she said. "They just can't
have different rules. A lot of peo-
ple have concerns about the
height restriction, but that was
clearly just someone that didn't
do their homework."
The idea for airport hotels in
the Keys originated as a means of
getting private money to help
" finance a dedicated emergency
operations center in Marathon;
currently when a hurricane threat-
ens, the Marathon Government
Center is transformed into such a
center but there is no place for
emergency workers to eat or sleep.
If a hotel is built at the
Marathon airport, Koppel said, a
developer could provide rooms
for emergency responders. Plans
also call for a developer to pay
the county a percentage of hotel
profits.

Canadian-made
electric cars go
1 mile on 1 cent
By SEAN KINNEY
Keynoter Contributor'

ZENN (Zero Emissions, No
Noise) electric cars offer a new
option for motorists who want to
look out for the environment


while saving a bundle on gas.
The Canadian-made all-elec-
tric automobile will go 50 miles
on one charge, says Dan Burley,

1304 Duval St. in Key West.
ZENN is restricted by federal
import laws to travel no more
than 25 mph; but, Burley said,
"I'm working with Key West to
rAise that up to 35."


The car, according to Burley's
calculations, uses just I cent of
electricity per mile. It is sugges-
tive of a Mini Cooper, with large
front driver and passenger seats
and 13 cubic feet of storage in the
back.

longer necessarily out of reach
based on improvements tp tech-

The current program runs
from 2007 to 2012 and includes
21 lease sales in eight of the 26
Outer Continental Shelf planning
areas in the Gulf of Mexico,
Alaska and the Atlantic. It does
not include areas under a-congres-
sional ban, with the exception of
Virginia. The new program,
depending on public comment,
can consider any area although
any leasing in a banned area
would need congressional action.
The Outer Continental Shelf
currently, provides 27 percent of
U.S. domestic oil production and
15 percent of domestic natural


gas production most from the
Gulf of Mexico. The areas under
a congressional ban, most of
them in the eastern Gulf, contain
an additional 18 billion barrels of
oil and 76 trillion cubic feet of
natural gas in yet-to-be-discov-
ered fields, according to the
Department of the Interior.
President Bush lifted the exec-
utive moratorium on oil and gas
leasing operations on the Outer
Continental Shelf on July 14,
calling on Congress to lift the
congressional ban that has been
in place since 1982. He also
urged Congress to enact legisla-
tion that would allow states to
have a say regarding operations
off their shores and to share in the
resulting revenues.
Following the president's
actions this summer, Kempthorne
directed the Minerals Manage-
ment Service to begin the initial


steps for developing a new five-
year program. The multi-year
process starts with a call for
information from all parties on
what a new program should con-
sider. MMS is also requesting
comment to efisure that all inter-
ests and concerns are considered
regarding oil and gas leasing and
exploration and development
resulting from a new program.
Individuals, business owners,

Football team

Friday night

Coral Shores High School's
football Hurricanes throw their
new offense into gear Friday to
see if it moves.
The Canes start things off in
2008 at 7:30 p.m. Friday at home
with a preseason game against
Sheridan Hills Christian, a Class
1B team.
"It's our first time to see what
we have," assistant coach Blake
Fry said. "We're going take a
look at a lot of kids, maybe move
them around a little" to different
positions.
"We have lot of young guys,"
interim head coach Jeff Meyers


said, "big young guys."
Of most interest to the
Hurricane coaching staff will be a
new offense installed during
spring practice by head coach
Todd Gideon.
The Canes, 3-7 last year, d-
n't scrimmage another team to
close spring drills. So Friday's
Kickoff Classic will be the first
time the new. scheme tries to
drive against an unfamiliar
defense.
Gideon, recovering from an
Aug. 2 accident, is expected to
attend the game and rejoin the
team soon.
Senior Chris Rini returns for
his third season at starting quar-
terback. Joining him in the back-
field as starters will be David
Miller and Mark Tribble.
Meyers expressed confidence

The Dolphins, 7-4 last sea-

performance of last year's 19-0
shutout against the Class 2A'
team in the last exhibition game
before the Sept. 5 opener at Key

Golfing Dolphins lack experience


"JUst one player
is returning
from last year
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's a season of new begin-
nings for the golf team at
Marathon High School.


With the exception of one
returning senior, Josh Gratton,
the entire team and coaching
staff will consist of fresh faces.
Gone are four seniors from a
team that notched the school's
first-ever winning season.
Former coach Dean Carrigan
now plays professionally on the
NGA Hooters Pro Golf Tour.

Kevin Freeman takes the
helm as coach after five years
coaching varsity volleyball at
Marathon. He said the Dolphins
will field eight new players,
including three seniors who have
never played competitively.
Al Hoffman and Thomas
Carey, along with homeschooler
Joe Pratt, have taken up the sport
in their last year of high school.
Sophomore Tyler Bennett
shows promise as a member of
Sombrero Country Club, where
the team plays and practices, and
has played a lot over the sum-
mer, Freeman said.
"Since we only have one
returning player, I don't know
how high expectations are,"
Freeman said. "None of these
players besides Josh has any
experience in a real match."
Freeman said the team has
been working on the basics -
including how to act during a




0-@


match.
"It's more about etiquette and
being a gentleman than anything
else. In golf, you have to be hon-
est and dedicated, but this is a
sport you can play the rest of
your life," he said.
But it's been difficult work-
ing on anything lately due to
Tropical Storm Fay, which
passed through the Keys Aug. 18
and left the country club's course
in bad condition for the rest of
the week.
"We haven't been able to get


on the range with all the rain.
Not a lot is expected from us, so
maybe we can have some sur-
prises," Freeman said.
The team opens the season
Sept. 5 and 6 with matches
against Key West High School.
The Dolphins will travel to Key
West Friday for a 1:30 p.m.
match and host the Conchs
Saturday morning at 10 a.m.
Both will be quad matches,
with Ransom Everglades and
Gulliver Prep making the trip to
the Keys.

in an offensive line with several
returning regulars.
Defense is expected to be a
strength this fall, with most of
last year's starting unit eligible to
return.
"We want to try some differ-
ent looks at linebacker," said Fry,
the defensive coordinator.
An improving Sheridan Hills'
Sharks squad went 4-5 in the reg-


ular season in 2007, finishing as
district runner-up. The Hollywood
club ran into eventual state 1B
champion Jupiter Christian in the
first round of the playoffs.
Sheridan Hills blanked Palmer
Trinity, 20-0, in a spring jam-
boree.
Coral Shores opens the regu-
lar season at Ransom Everglades
Sept. 5, then travels to Key West
High School on Sept. 12 before
the first home game, Sept. 19
against Westminster Christian.

Four Keys teams tip off


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.corn

The volleyball season begins
Thursday sooner than expect-.
ed but not soon enough for Coral
Shores High School's eager Lady
Hurricanes.
"It should be a very interesting
year," coach Andy Thiery said.
"We've got eight seniors and six
underclassmen who all have
experience."
Coral Shores hosts the annual
Keys Classic preseason tourna-
ment Thursday, matching the four
varsity net squads from Monroe
County.
Originally scheduled for
Friday, the event was advanced to
Thursday to avoid conflicts with
preseason football games.
Semifinal play begins at 5
p.m. with the Lady Canes facing
Island Christian School, and
Marathon High School taking on
Key West High School in best-of-
three-sets play.
The championship game and
third-place games tip off around.


6:30 p.m.
Coral Shores is coming off a
12-13 season in 2007 that saw the
Canes lose five matches to
District 16-3A rival Ransom
Everglades, including a district
semifinal.
The Lady Canes took pride in
winning the informal county
championship with a 4-0 record
against Keys opponents. Five
seniors graduated from that club.
Two dozen athletes turned out
to fill this fall's varsity and junior
varsity rosters, and made a return
visit to .summer volleyball camp
at Florida Southern College.
For the first time, the veteran
Canes were graded to compete in
the Elite Division, highest of four
divisions at tlhe FSC camp.
"That was an honor in itself,"
Thiery said. "We took some
lumps and didn't win the divi-
sion, but we. played some state-
championship teams and stayed
with them."
Thiery said the varsity roster
includes at least "four middles,


four left-hitters and four setters.
They're all legitimate players,
almost interchangeable."
Leading the squad is the sen-
ior class of Hannah Padgett, Julia
Hatfield, Maire McMahon,
Lauren Kelleher, Chelsea
Moeller, Shelby Gentes, Shannon
Penix and Kayla Mauthe.
Underclassmen such as
Chelsea Russell and Lauren
Sanchez will compete for starting
spots.
"We've had athletes before
but the big question is always
how the team works together,"
Thiery said. "Right now, things
look good. There's not a problem
child in the bunch."
At least four teams includ-
ing Coral Shores have a shot
in the six-team District 16-3A
race this fall, Thiery said.
"Ransom Everglades, Gulliver
Prep and Archbishop Carroll all
are good but nobody is unbeat-
able," he said. "We should be
right there in the pack."
Coral Shores opens the regular
season with a road match at
Ransom Sept. 5.

Swimming Dolphins grow


,,- By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
swim team is set to open its 2008
season next week with three
more swimmers and five more
scheduled meets than last year.
. .- Coach Sarah Maschal said the


team is continuing to grow and
. get better despite its limitations.
She said she has high hopes for
the team's returning swimmers.
"I'm hoping they all make it
to regionals by themselves. I
think they have the drive this

Martin said he's had a chance
to look at Pope John Paul on
film and believes the Dolphins
will fare well Friday. Pope John
Paul has a new coach this year.
They are "pretty similar
offensively and defensively for
the most part, but they're a well-
coached team," he said. "They'll
be bigger than us, but they don't
have as much speed."

The Dolphins have several
new opponents this season,
something Marathon has
become accustomed to as a
small school in the Keys. The
team is scheduled to play 10 reg-
ular season games, with five at
home and five on the road.
Marathon will finish the reg-
ular season with a game against
Keys rival Coral Shores High
School Nov. 14. The season
opener at Key West is scheduled
to kick off at 8 p.m.


Roberts, Blake McCarthy and
Javier Rodriguez, junior Acacia
Grube and freshmen Victoria
Arnett and Kyra Simcic-

eight more swimmers are
expected to start practice after
their physical.
"If we keep getting bigger, I
don't know where we're going
to put them all. We're going to
have to start going to two prac-
tices," she said.
The team continues to grow
despite practicing in a short pool
at Sombrero Resort because it
has no home pool and thus no
home meets. And it's no small
commitment each practice,
with a study hall or weightlifting
session included, takes more
than three hours.
Maschal said traveling to
every competition is a challenge
for her and the kids.
"It kills my budget having to
travel to every meet and not
