vote form


Marathon man
says signature
doesn't match up
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County State
Attorney's Office is investigat-
ing possible voting registration
fraud spotted by a Marathon res-
ident during Tuesday's primary
elections.
Tom Dodamead said he was
voting at Presbyterian Kirk of
the Keys Church and noticed the,
signature in the Supervisor of
Elections Office register, which
lists voters' names, addresses
and party affiliations, wasn't his.
He says that in November, he
changed his party affiliation
from Independent to Democrat
and filled out the appropriate
form, including signing it. But


he says the signature in the reg-
ister isn't his.
"The one they have on file is
not the one I filled out. Maybe
someone lost a card and they
filled it out for me," .he said. "I
don't know, I'm just curious
enough to want to know."
Monroe County Elections
Supervisor Harry Sawyer, who
was elected in 1988, said he's
never encountered possible
fraud in his 20 years in office.
"Every single voter that
comes in to vote sees their signa-
ture in the register. We've never
had anyone say that it wasn't
theirs," he said.
Dodamead said Marathon
elections office employees told
him they aren't allowed-to pro-
vide him with copies of the
allegedly falsified forms.

Ousted commissioners blame media


Spehar is now
in the market
for employment
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

After two terms on the
Monroe County Commission,
Dixie Spehar is making plans
this week to go job hunting.
"I must have a job to be able
to continue living here," she said.
"It was already difficult to live


on that [County Commission]
salary" of $44,283 annually.
Tuesday, Spehar, the two-
term commissioner from District
1, lost the Republican primary to
Kim Wigington, taking just
31.37 percent of the vote to
Wigington's 68.63 percent.
Wigington faces Democrat Bill
Estes in November.
"I still love this county,"
Spehar said.

McCoy appears.
resigned to an
early retirement
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@ keynoter.com

After the surprise of his loss
in the primary election, Monroe
County Commissioner Sonny
McCoy, 80, has had time to
accept his retirement from poli-
tics. In his office Thursday, he
quoted Shakespeare from memo-


ry-
"Life's but a walking shadow,
a poor player, that struts and frets
his hour upon the stage, and then
is heard no more; it is a tale told
by an idiot, full of sound and
fury, signifying nothing."
Political newcomer Carlos
Rojas ousted McCoy Tuesday.
McCoy garnered just 38 percent
of Republican votes cast. Rojas
took 62 percent.

McCOY / From I

McCoy says he struggled with
the decision to run for a third
term, anyway.
"I considered staying in for
just two [more] years, then ask-
ing the governor to appoint
someone to finish my term," he
said. He says that would have
allowed him time to see through
some projects that aren't fin-
ished.
"Actually, though, every-
thing's in place," he told the
Keynoter, "so I don't feel so terri-
bly bad being thrown out with the
bathwater."
McCoy blames an overall
mood for change for his loss, but
says there was a strong move to
oust him specifically, as well.
"It was all set up and
planned," he said, complaining
he didn't get endorsements he'd
hoped for. "The newspapers were
in lockstep."
On Nov. 19, McCoy will close
out two four-year terms on the
County Commission. He was also
mayor of Key West from 1972
until 1982 the longest-serving
mayor in the city's history.
Tuesday, voters seemed to sig-
nal the county's in trouble, facing
a $10 million shortfall in the
coming budget year and staring
down the barrel of a July 2010
deadline to have all of the Keys
hooked up to central sewers. But
McCoy feels his time on the dais
has been successful, especially
where sewer funding is con-


cemed.
"I was instrumental in getting
sewers installed in Key West
when I was mayor," he said.
"Then in the late 1990s, they
turned to me to help solve the
county's sewer problems."
He said time he spent lobby-
ing in Tallahassee, along with
county Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
and state Rep. Ron Saunders,
helped bring home a commitment
of $200 million in state sewer
bonds over four years, though the
money hasn't yet been allocated.
McCoy says his biggest suc-
cess is the near completion of a
new passenger terminal at Key
West International Airport. The
McCoy Terminal Complex is
named for both him and his late
wife Merili, who served on the
Key West City Commission.
"We've got that beautiful new
terminal and it's not costing
Monroe County taxpayers," he
said. "It's all paid for with feder-
al dollars and passenger fees."
McCoy, an architect, said his
retirement means he'll have. more
time to work on a Costa Rica proj-
ect he's had on the back burner.
"And I'll have a continued
voice on my islands," he said.
"Which venue for that voice is
yet to be determined."
McCoy will serve in the
District 3 seat until the Nov. 19
swearing-in of a new commis-
sioner. It'll be Rojas, Democrat
Heather Carruthers or nonaffiliat-
ed Sloan, Bashinsky, who will
face each other in the Nov. 4 gen-
eral election.

Spehar to stay involved


SPEHAR / From 1

"I will still follow the
issues, especially the issues
I've started working on and
want t6 see completed. But it
will depend on what kind of
job I find whether I can go to
every County Commission
meeting," she said.
Looking back, Spehar
blames the media for painting
her as a pro-development
member of the so-called Gang
of Three. She often voted for
unpopular development along
with Commissioner Sonny
McCoy who also lost by a
wide margin Tuesday and
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro.
She says the Gang of Three
label is probably what lost her
the election.
"I think the media hype
painting me as a mindless third
vote has hurt me consider-
ably," she said. "The misinfor-
mation continued through the
last year. It was a very good
campaign to see I wasn't re-
elected."
She still stands behind her
push for the county to buy the.
Stock Island restaurant and bar
formerly called the Hickory
House for $3.12 million. But
the Hickory House became an
albatross around her neck.
She says the intention was
to use the waterfront property
for public access to the water.
Such access has shrunk consid-
erably the past decade.
The county bought the
Hickory House in November
2006 but reversed itself when
popular opinion drove the
County Commission to put it
back on the market. Now the
county is in negotiations with
the owners of the Kings Point


Marina to buy
it for. $3.1
million -
s i which w9uld
be a financial
loss to the
county.
Despite
that, Spehar
SPEHAR says she has a
lot to be
proud of in her eight years on
the commission, including
major strides forward in land
conservation and sewer con-
struction, which the state man-
dates.
"We have made unbeliev-
able strides in wastewater and
in the whole area of [comply-
ing with mandates under the
state designation as an Area of
Critical State Concern]. When
I came in, we had direction to
just look at [sewer] hot spots.
Now we have a master plan
and are looking at regional
plants that are looking at the
most affordable systems."
Sewer construction is ongo-
ing.in the Lower Keys, with a
regional plant planned for Big
Coppitt, Rockland, Shark and
Geiger keys.
She says she's also proud of
serving when a new land man-
agement system, known as the
tier system, was put into place.
The system directs growth
toward areas that are already
developed and preserves the
more pristine parts of the Keys.
Now, besides looking for a
job, she's looking for a way to
volunteer, .perhaps with the
Florida Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals.
"My love is the critters,"
Spehar said.
She tried for years to work
out a way in which people


could bring their pets to Keys
hurricane shelters. This year,
for the first time, that's
allowed. The pets must be
caged and the owners must
show proof of their animals'
up-to-date shots.
She also was instrumental in
getting part of Higgs Beach in
Key West designated as a dog
park.
Spehar's last day as a com-
missioner is Nov. 19. That
morning, her successor will be
sworn in and attend his or her
first commission meeting.

Keys Opinion


Neugent may hold cards,

needs to be a statesman

So now Monroe County Commissioner George Neugent
finds himself closer to the top of the local political mountain.
Let's hope, when a newly constituted commission is seated
Nov. 19, he remembers how long he spent at the bottom.
Neugent, halfway through his third four-year term, has been
in the voting minority for as along as anyone can remember -
further back even than when the term "gang of three" really
came into popular use in 2005.
For those who don't recall, the original "gang" comprised
then-Commissioner Murray Nelson and commissioners Sonny
McCoy and Dixie Spehar. Led by Nelson, they were often seen
as taking marching orders from then-state Rep. Ken Sorensen.
Nelson died in office in 2006 but that wasn't the end of bloc
voting patterns. The gang simply added a new member, Mario
Di Gennaro, who was elected unopposed that same year.
The past two years, the gang of McCoy, Spehar and Di
Gennaro has been largely seen as voting in lockstep no matter
the issue. Usually it had something to do with development,
whether it was looking at allowing the transfer of building
rights to watering down a law designed to protect the tradition-
al uses of the Keys' working waterfront.
Tuesday, voters decided they'd had enough and busted up the
gang, sending McCoy and Spehar off into the political sunset
in the GOP primary. The winners were Carlos Rojas and Kim -
Wigington.
Rojas now faces Democrat Heather Carruthers and nonaffili-
ated Sloan Bashinsky in November, and Wigington faces
Democrat Bill Estes.
Neugent already has a commission ally in Sylvia Murphy,
who won her GOP primary Tuesday. One more on their side
and we face the potential for a new gang, with Neugent as the
possible leader.
But the last thing this county needs is a new gang replacing
the old one. We hope Neugent recognizes that; at least we think
he does when he makes statements like this: He expects "a lot
more independent votes out there."
We hope that's the case, that the commissioners who will be
seated in November will consider each and every,issue on its
merit rather than vote along ideological lines.
Being at the bottom of the mountain for so long can make one
bitter. When you get closer to the top of the mountain, some- -
times you forget where you once stood. We believe Neugent
won't forget where he stood before Tuesday.
Now is the time for Neugent to play statesman rather than
new gang leader.

Keys residents help each other when tragedy hits


EDITOR:
I am Lisa Gideon's sister. I feel compelled to
write to let you know the thoughts and feelings
of myself and my family.
What happened to Coral Shores High School
football coach Todd Gideon Aug. 2 [a crash on
-an all-terrain vehicle] was a life-changing expe-
rience. We consider ourselves very blessed that
the outcome was as good as it could possibly be.
I wanted to let you know how impressed I
was by the support of your community down in
the Keys. Within an hour of my call to our par-
ents, Jim and Dottie Teegardin, I received a call
from Dave Murphy. The coconut telegraph was
in full swing. Those two weeks are such a blur
in my mind, but I do remember the comfort in
knowing that prayers were being said and
details from your corner of the world were
being handled by Dave and Tiffany Murphy,
Blake and Mary Jo Fry, Jeff Meyers and so
many other angels that I cannot name. My sister
and I just kept looking at each other and saying,
"Thank God one less thing."
Our family as well as Todd's live in
Michigan, I live in Indiana, Todd was in Ohio.
We spent many hours on the road driving back
and forth, always with a phone in hand working


out details between four states. There were
angels wherever we turned and whenever we
faced a new set of problems.
When Todd was well enough to travel, the
three of us hit the road for a long three-day trip.
At a rest stop in Alabama, we received a call
from Trish Biondoletti; a generous collection of
money from your community had been placed
into their bank account. We couldn't stop the
tears. Again, angels were with us.
The thing I will never forget as long as I live
is when we stopped by the football field. We
were all exhausted and feeling down, but stop-
ping by the football field really brought our
spirits up. Especially Todd's. His first concerns
after the accident were not of himself but of his
wife, his son, his students and his football play-
ers. He really needed to see the guys and I can't
tell you how much that helped in his spirit and
his healing.
We are so blessed that we have people like
you in our lives and the words "thank you and
we love you" cannot express enough how we
feel about all of you and what you have done
for us. 1; t

No one loses in the Battle of the Bars


EDITOR:
We at Literacy Volunteers of America -
Monroe County and the Boys and Girls Club
of the Florida Keys can't thank Schooner
Wharf owner Evalena Worthington enough
for her hard work and generosity on behalf of
our agencies with this year's 15th annual
Battle of the Bars. This event made $27,642
- an all-time record high that got split
between the Literacy Volunteers and Boys
and Girls Club.
With all the budget cutbacks and reduc-
tions in funding experienced by so many of
us in the nonprofit sector, we can't tell you
how much this support is appreciated.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will
go toward direct services in our community
- teaching reading, writing and English liter-
acy through the Literacy Volunteers; and
helping children with critically needed after-
school programs through the Boys and Girls
Club.
We are grateful and appreciative to
Evalena and all the wonderful people who
helped make this event happen for us. Huge
attaboys and attagirls go to referees Billy
Winn, Reta Root, Kari Kruse, Craig Farland,
Carla Farland, Steve Lynch, Lynn Lynch, Cat
Canady, Justin Berry, Cecil Witt and Albert
Gonzales and especially the 36 teams that
competed.
Everyone was a winner because everyone
gave their all, especially the deep-pocket gen-
tleman bar owners from Irish Kevin's and
Cowboy Bill's who contributed $6,000
apiece. More, big thanks go to our sponsors
and more than 38 different restaurants and
bars kind enough to answer our phone calls ,
requesting prize'dohations, then give, give


and give again, contributing enough dinners
for two and great stuff to, make the event spe-
cial for everybody.
We are so lucky to be living in a communi-
ty where the harder it gets to make a.dollar
and keep your head above water, the more
generous our community becomes.
A great, big thank you to everyone who
supported the Battle of the Bars for the bene-
fit of the Literacy Volunteers of America and
Boys and Girls Club of the Florida Keys.

Delay tax decision
EDITOR:
Now that we will have a new balance of
power on the Monroe County Commission,
the decision on imposing a tax increase on
property owners should be postponed.
Hopefully, our new commissioners can find a
better solution to the budget mess created by
their predecessors.
In any event, it does not make sense for
the current board to make a decision" that the
new board will have to live with.

EDITOR:
On Aug. 27, I attended the School Board
budget hearing held at Marathon High
School. I want to thank Chairman Steve
Pribramsky for holding the present adminis-
tration's feet to the fire when asking about
expenditures. A balanced budget is a must.
Why is the School District held to a differ-
ent standard? And thanks to Mr. Pribramsky
for saying he will not ask the citizens of
Monroe County for an increase in taxes to
support a deficit.

Post-election incident
not how it was reported
EDITOR:
This is for the citizens of the Florida
Keys. I would like to set a few things
straight about my father, Sonny McCoy.
My father was portrayed in a newspaper
this week as being unethical and showing
poor sportsmanship with Carlos Rojas, who
defeated him in Tuesday's primary election.
I was standing right next to my father.
when Carlos approached him. Yes Carlos
did try to shake his hand, but as anyone
would know who attended any of the
forums where Carlos was present and
Sonny was not, Carlos had bad-mouthed
Sonny so much that my father chose to say
nothing to the man and just turned away,
He said nothing to Carlos. Carlos then
turned to me and shook my hand and said,
"I ran a clean campaign against your dad."
I replied, "No, you did not," and then I
turned *to talk to someone else. End of
story.
The newspaper chose a picture that
looked as if Sonny McCoy was the bad guy.
My son Dylan Grantham was standing right
below his grandfather in this picture. How
anyone in their right mind would think that
my father would say anything derogatory in
front of his grandson is mind-boggling.
I repeat, my father said nothing to
Carlos. Shame on Carlos Rojas for saying
otherwise.

The numbers tell the real story

of Tuesday's primary election


Political pundits all had the trifecta nailed. Or at least
that's the way most remembered their picks after
Tuesday's primary election.
But I suspect not one could have predicted the vote
margins for some veterans like Sonny McCoy, Dixie
Spehar, Sylvia Murphy and Joan Lord-Papy.
A lot of those who forecast Spehar, the county com-
missioner in District 1, would lose this time to a much-
better organized Kim Wigington surely didn't see a
rout, which is what the political newcomer delivered
Tuesday.
Nor did anyone foresee the scope of loss visited on
by McCoy, the commissioner for District 3, who has
won every election he ever entered except this last
one.
A precinct-by-precinct analysis of Tuesday's vote
shows exactly how deep a hole McCoy dug for him-
self.
He faced a novice, Carlos Rojas, who didn't cam-
paign all that much, missed some forums and did little
media advertising.
Yet McCoy lost in his Key West strong-
hold where the septuagenarian ran and won
five terms as Key West mayor. But that was
decades ago and a lot has changed in the
Southernmost City.
Out of 33 precincts countywide, McCoy
managed to eke out a win in only five, and
all those were in the Upper Keys where
McCoy was least well-known.
The Ocean Reef Republicans clearly ral-
lied to his side, giving him a 47-1 margin
against Rojas. But that was the only land-
slide McCoy would see on Tuesday as
Rojas racked up victory margins in every
precinct from Key West's Jaycee Club to Wayne
Grassy Key. Keynotel
The rout was even worse for Spehar, who
defeated Monroe County's mayor emeritus Wilhelmina
Harvey in a 2000 contest. Out of 33 precincts tallied
Tuesday, Spehar managed to beat Wigington in only
one place Ocean Reef.
In Key Largo, where Spehar came under special fire
from the Island of Key Largo Federation of
Homeowner Associations, she got.fewer than half as
many Republican votes as Rojas.
A parallel trend surprised those who tracked District
5 Commissioner Sylvia Murphy's primary race against
a strong GOP challenger, Gary Bauman.
Murphy largely gets a cheering section from the
homeowners federation, but Bauman managed to beat
her in three of four Key Largo precincts. Murphy did
take an 8:1 margin in Ocean Reef and also beat
Bauman in Precinct 32, which votes at the Key Largo
Baptist Church off Largo Road near Lake Surprise.
Pundits were predicting an anti-incumbent sweep.
Murphy defied that wave along with District 3 School
Board incumbent Duncan Mathewson, who won re-
election with nearly 59 percent of the vote, but likely
thought his margin would be closer to 67 to 68 percent.
Another incumbent who survived the voter onslaught
just fine Key West political doyen Lord-Papy, who
beat a strong challenge from political newcomer Chris
Zuelch on the Democratic ballot for the Mosquito
Control Board.
Lord-Papy got 55 percent of the vote and goes on to


Voter turnout
The table below shows the number of registered voters by political
party, the number of votes cast, and the percentage of registered
voters who turned out for the Aug. 26 primary election.

a November showdown with her 2004 Republican
challenger,. Andy Williams. In that race, Lord-Papy
barely beat the neophyte campaigner 18,256 to 17,807,
a thin margin of only 449 votes. And to recall just how
close, 3,554 voters left their ballots blank in the 2004
Lord-Papy vs. Williams contest.
Low turnout was another surprise.
With 11 percent of registered voters casting absentee
ballots or voting early, Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer had predicted turnout could top 40
percent by the time the polls closed at 7
p.m.
With three County Commission incum-
bents facing challengers, five running for a
Circuit Court judge's seat, a GOP show-
down for sheriff and Democrats and
Republicans fielding candidates to battle
over the District 1 Mosquito Control Board
seat, it looked like the early voting wave
^ would continue on election day.
However, ballots showed the weakness of
party preference primaries. Republicans
had the most races with the highest-profile
larKham showdowns and their turnout was 34 per-
Publisher cent. That's not great, but it was far ahead
of Monroe's overall turnout of 27 percent.
By contrast, nonaffiliated and independent voters
had a skimpy ballot with only nonpartisan two races,
the judicial contest and a lone School Board race. And
their turnout was a pathetic 14 percent countywide.
Democrats had the Mosquito Control Board race to
spice up their ballots at bit, along with judicial candi-
dates and the School Board matchup. Turnout for
Dems was 30 percent.
Over the past four years, registration by those other
than Republicans or Democrat has grown in Monroe
County. For Tuesday's primary, that group represented
nearly 26 percent of all registered voters. That com-
pares to 38.5 percent for Republican registration and
35.7 percent for Democrats.
Expect a far different turnout picture come November,
when all registered voters regardless of party affilia-
tion will be able to participate in local contests as
well as a potentially watershed presidential contest. And
that's not even counting all the state constitutional
amendments on the ballot this time.
For Democrats, a big question will be how much
voter registration drives narrow the gap with Keys
Republicans. And for presidential prognosticators, how
will the independents vote in this historic presidential
election?
No one knows the answer to that, which is why poli-
tics is so fascinating and why pundits often get it
wrong.

Tough lending rules impact Woods Corner


$130,000 price
hits buyers on
loan qualifying
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer ,
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Months after opening, only a
third of the units at Islamorada's
biggest workforce-housing
development have been sold.
Woods Comer doesn't lack
for would-be buyers, say hous-
ing officials. The problem is
money.
"In my 15 years in this busi-
ness, this is the most difficult


-environment I've ever seen in
mortgage lending," said Rick
Casey, executive director of the
Middle Keys Community Land
Trust, which built Woods
Corner.
Managers of the project have
put out advertising flyers and
stage open-house events three
times a week to attract potential
buyers.
"The ability of people to get
mortgages in a low-down-pay-
ment situation has changed con-
siderably," Casey said. "There
have been a substantial number
of applicants who I believe
would have clearly qualified a

year ago. This year, they do not
qualify."
Banking institutions nation-
wide, rocked by the wave of
housing foreclosures, have
reversed policies that made it
easy for people to qualify for
home mortgages.
Not long ago, mortgages
applications would be reviewed
and approved in a matter of
days, Casey said. "Now that
time's been stretched out to six
or even 10 weeks," he said.
About 100 families or indi-
viduals applied to buy one of the
16 three-bedroom units at mile
marker 89.9 on Plantation Key.
As of this week, six owners
had closed the purchase of a
unit.
Seven more are waiting to
learn if they have been approved
for a mortgage.
"Right now, we think we have
three units left," Casey said. "It's
remarkable. At $130,000 for a
home in the Keys, you'd think
there would be people lined up
around the block."
The trick has been finding
families that meet income limits
but can show the ability to pay.
the mortgage.
Deb Gills, chairwoman of
Islamorada's Affordable/Work-
force Housing Citizens Advisory
Committee, said the applicants
mostly have been "good people
that we want to keep in our com-
munity.


"It's just really, really tough
getting through the mortgage
process now," Gillis said. "We
still need the [workforce] hous-
ing. It's that the financing isn't
there."
The six units sold now belong.
to "exactly the kind of people we
need to keep here," she said.


The trick has

been finding
families
that meet

income
limits but

can show.
the ability

to pay the
mortgage.

They include a teacher, local
government employees, an
emergency medical technician,
charter captain, a computer con-
sultant and two dolphin trainers.
"The people who have been
able to move in are very excited
and happy to be there," Gillis
said. "Everybody is impressed


with the high quality of the
homes."
Eight of the 1,360-square-
foot townhouses were scheduled
to be sold for $130,500 to fami-
lies making up to $50,000 annu-
ally.
The remaining eight were to
be sold for $190,000 to families
making less than $75,000.
Casey said the income limits
are established by inflexible fed-
eral regulation, and are not like-
ly to change significantly in the
near future.
All the modular units are
deed-restricted so they remain in
the affordable-housing pool
should the owners decide to sell.
After down payment and
closing costs, the monthly pay-
ments still would run $1,270 to
$1,590 monthly.
Gillis said she is confident the
project will be fully occupied
soon. "There are several g'od
candidates in the process," she
said.
The project was undertaken
as a joint effort of the village of
Islamorada, the Middle Keys
Community Land Trust, and
state and county housing-part-
nership initiatives.
Construction money came
from grants and a loan that will
be repaid as the units are sold.
Open-house tours at Woods
Comer are offered from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Sunday, and from 5 to
7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

A rule requiring all saltwater
anglers to register with the fed-
eral government is expected to
be published around Nov. 1.
But the public comment
period on the National
Saltwater Angler Registry
closed Aug. 11. More than 600
comments were received,
according to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration.
The national saltwater angler
registry program is scheduled to
take effect in January 2009.
There would be no fees for the
first two years of the program,
but fees ranging $15 to $25 are
likely beginning in 2011,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
As proposed, states that cur-
rently license recreational
anglers would be largely
exempt from the national
requirements.
However, Florida allows
many groups to fish without a
saltwater license on-shore
fishermen, senior citizens, jun-
iors and others so the nation-
al registry would be enforced in
Florida unless state exemptions
are ended.
The purpose of the registry is


receive loans up to $20,000
through the Key West
Community Development
Office to help with down pay-
ments.
"In order to get into afford-
able housing ... the biggest
hurdle is making a down pay-
ment," Mayor Morgan
McPherson said. "I think we'll
see 20 homes that will be able
to close because of this."
Applicants would have to
earn at least 70 percent of their
total income from employment
in Key West and would be


designed to improving the effi-
ciency and accuracy of recre-
ational fishing surveys.
Federal law requires more
stringent licensing to gauge the
effect of the recreational fishery
on fish populations, NOAA
said.
The public can read the com-
ments sent in online at
www.regulations.gov. Enter
"fishery registry."

Grouper closure
On a separate issue, the
South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council will taken
written comments through Sept.
15 on proposed rules that would
close most grouper fishing for
four to seven months.
The rule is part of a package
designed to protect the gag
grouper fishery, but also would
apply to popular species includ-
ing red grouper and black
grouper to prevent accidental
bycatch.
The council staff's preferred
alternative would close .grouper
fishing from North Carolina to
Key West for four months in the
winter.
Another proposal would
allow Florida Keys grouper
fishing in those four months,
but close it the rest of the year.
To comment or read the reg-
ulations, go to www.safmc

scheduled Sept. 18 in

considered on a first-come,
first-ready basis.
The program targets indi-
viduals and families that earn
up to 150 percent of Monroe
County's median income
adjusted for family size. For a
family of four, that translates
into $61,000 annually.
Commissioner Dan


Kolhage calls the program "a
great idea" that puts "good
money to use.'"
The money to fund it would
come from the city's afford-
able housing trust fund, which
saw a financial windfall to the
tune of $300,000 following a
code enforcement settlement
with the Galleon Resorts and


Marina.

Randy Acevedo says he is

closure on his Key West home.
"I guess you could say it's

superintendent. He's running
against Republican Fred
Colvard in the Nov. 4 election.

notification," Acevedo said.
"It's scary to a family to see
that, but we'll have it cleared
.up hopefully the end of next


week."
According to Monroe
County Clerk of Court docu-
ments, the Acevedos secured an
$88,000 mortgage from Keys
Federal Credit Union in
October 2001 and then a sec-
ond mortgage of $368,000 in
November 2002.
A February 2007 document
shows full payment of the
$368,000 sum. However, a
document from January 2007
shows California-based Master
Financial Inc. as a lender of a
$435,500 mortgage to both
Randy and Monique Acevedo.
A notice of foreclosure was
then filed July 30, 2008, and
lists Saxon Mortgage Services
as the plaintiff.
Acevedo said his original
mortgage company sold his
mortgage to Saxon, and he and
his wife contacted Saxon on
Tuesday to confirm that it is
now the owner of the loan.
Acevedo said they never
missed any mortgage pay-
ments.

expect to charge him with a'btal
of 25 counts of burglary for 25
burglaries he allegedly committed
to feed his crack cocaine habit.
Jerez, whose occupation is
listed as construction worker, was
living at 1716 Bertha St. in Key
West. Detective Sgt. J.R. Torres
says they believe that all of .the
homes Jerez is accused of bur-
glarizing were in Old Town, south
of First Street. But he didn't just
keep to one island, Torres says.
He said Jerez "was working
the whole Lower Keys," burglar-
izing homes and committing var-
ious other crimes all the way up
to Big Pine Key. A flag stolen
from a bank on Big Pine was
among the items found in Jerez'
possession, Torres said. "He just
basically went on a rampage," he
said.
One of the Key West break-
ins was at the Center Street home
of a man who told police that he
is a priest.. According to the
report, the homeowner, who
could not be reached for com-
ment, told police he returned
from walking his dogs on Aug. 7
to find Jerez in his house. Police
say there was no physical alter-
cation between the two and that
Jerez ran out when confronted.
Burglary of an occupied
dwelling is a higher class of
felony and can carry a longer
prison sentence. In another such
burglary, on Flagler Street in Key
West, the homeowner was awok-
en by noises and walked into his
living room to find Jerez there,
Torres said.

Nature Conservancy burns 17 acres


It's to control
some plants from
overrunning others
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Seventeen acres of land
burned on Big Pine Key this
week, but no worries.
The Nature Conservancy per-
formed the planned, or pre-
scribed," burn Wednesday and
Thursday in its 20-acre preserve
along Key Deer Boulevard -
without protest from the numer-


ous environmental groups that
objected to a similar bum planned
earlier this year by the National
Key Deer Refuge.
The Nature Conservancy's
Keys director, Chris Bergh, said
while it supported the refuge's
burning plan, the conservancy's
land is a completely different
habitat than what the refuge
planned to bum.
"What they planned on doing
on the north end of Big Pine was
a bit novel in that it was marsh as
opposed to pine forest, and there
is the rare marsh rabbit that lives

Nature Conservancy Land Conservation Program Manager Alison Higgins ignites foliage
during a planned burn Thursday on the conservancy's 20-acre Big Pine Key preserve. The burns
are done to prevent hardwood hammock plants from overtaking the pine rockland habitat,
which is home to several rare plant species.


up there," he said.
The conservancy performs
bums on its preserve the last
was in 2003 as a way to ensure
hardwood hammock plants don't
overrun rare, low-lying pineland
species on the preserve like the
Big Pine partridge pea. The con-
servancy also does research to
determine how fire affects the
habitat.


"If you don't do a fire, these
things grow up and they start to
form a continuous canopy,"
Bergh said of the hardwood ham-
mock plant.
Bergh supervised a team of
certified staff members in burn-
ing 13 acres Wednesday and
another four Thursday. He said
the conditions post-Tropical
Storm Fay were ideal.


"You bum the fuels on a day
when it's not too dry, not too
windy and not too risky. It does-
n't preclude, but it decreases, the
chance of a wildfire," he said.
The fire scorched palm fronds
and pine needles on the ground,
but the topsoil was still moist less
than an inch below.
Starting from the perimeter of
the preserve, workers ignited the
habitat, making sure to prevent
any embers from crossing the
firebreak and catching adjacent
refuge land.
Various palm plants on the
preserve are particularly flamma-
ble, Bergh said. Dead leaves at
the base burn like paper and the
top layers are oily, which makes
for a quick, hot bum.
"They bounce right back,"
Bergh said of the palms. "You'll
see the green growing back out of
the trunk within a couple of
weeks."
Bergh said workers are even
able to control flame heights.
"What we don't want to do is
kill too many of the pines. If you
get too much heat on the growing
tips, that's the sensitive part," he
said.

Keys parakeets marry


The nuptials
are complete
with an arch
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


Bubbles and Spike Howell-
were married on Aug. 23 in a
backyard ceremony in Marathon.
The bride, a pretty blue parakeet,
was walked down the aisle by
her owner, 9-year-old Hannah
Child, and Hannah's mother
Amy Sollie.
Spike Howell, a yellow male
parakeet, was waiting at the altar
in the arms of his owner, 7-year-
old Aydan Child, Hannah's
brother.
George Sollie, the children's
grandfather, was the officiant.
Groomsmen were Jackson and
Harrison McMillen, ages 6 and
7. Bridesmaids were Bailey
Sullivan and Samantha Hauck,
both 9.
Spike and Bubbles have lived
with Amy Sollie and her chil-
dren at the home on Shark Drive
in Marathon for the last four
months. Sollie, who is legally
blind, worked as a wedding
planner and had her own busi-
ness before Hurricane Wilma. It
was her daughter Hannah's idea
to have the two birds marry.

Body identified
as Key West man

The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office has identified
the body of a man found float-
ing off Wisteria Island in Key
West Tuesday as Vivian Jones,
18.
The Sheriff's Office says a
friend of Jones said the victim
worked on a boat in Key West
Harbor and sometimes stayed
aboard that boat. The friend said
he'd gone out to. the boat to
check on him, but Jones wasn't
there.
The U.S. Coast Guard
checked the surrounding area
after receiving the report but
didn't initially find any indica-
tion of the victim's where-
abouts. A short time later,


though, a passing boater report-
ed seeing a body floating in the
water. The body was identified
as Jones.
Detectives say they could see
no obvious signs of foul play.
Friends say the victim trav-
eled back and forth to the boat
in a yellow kayak and always
wore a life jacket when he was
in the kayak because he couldn't
swim. When his body was
found, he wasn't wearing a life
jacket. The kayak has not been
found.
Jones' body was the sixth
found floating in Keys waters
this year. Earlier this month,
four were found off the Upper
Keys they haven't been iden-
tified and a murder victim
was found off the Seven Mile
Bridge. Her husband is in cus-
tody.

Man commandeers chopper


- then shakes hands


FBI called in
due to breach
at Keys airport
By LARRY KAHN
Ikahn@keynoter.com

A Marathon man-broke into
an aircraft hangar, ripped
chemical tanks from a helicop-
ter inside and then refused to
get out of the aircraft -
although he shook hands with
those who tried to talk him out.
The threat at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport was such
that the FBI was called in to


investigate. "The FBI was
looking into it because it's a
federal facility it's an air-
port so there are aircraft and
chemicals," said Michael
Spoto, superintendent of the
Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District, which owns
the hangar.
Mark Hurnevich, 45, was
arrested Wednesday on felony
charges of burglary and crimi-
nal mischief, and a misde-
meanor count of trespassing.
The incident happened Aug. 13
but he was just charged
because he had been under

ny. A worker there called the
district to tell them a man
broke down the fence and was
in the hangar.
"Our guys were all busy and
had their backs to the hangar
and didn't even see him go in
there," Spoto said.
Hurnevich wouldn't get out
of the chopper until Deputy
Rosa DiGiovanni finally con-
vinced him to leave. He was
taken to a mental health clinic,
where he stayed until his arrest
Wednesday.
Spoto said Hurnevich could
have done some real damage
because the helicopters start by
just pushing a button. If he had
done that, the rotors could
have hit the building or other
aircraft; there were the two
choppers in the hangar as well
as two planes.
Spoto said Hurnevich isn't a
current or former employee of
Mosquito Control, although
staff at the hangar knew of
him. In a previous incident, in
the district's old office before
the hangar was built,
HurneVich went on the proper-

Causley makes


last pitch for contract


But Burnett
seems intent
on rejection
By RYAN McCARTHY

M.T. Causley Inc. founder
Mike Causley made what
appears to be a last-ditch effort
Tuesday to continue operating
the city of Marathon's
Building Department.
Councilman Don Vasil
invited Causley to make a
presentation after City
Manager Clyde Burnett made
it clear he believes the
Building Department will
operate more efficiently in
house.

Guard urges safety
during holiday weekend

This three-day Labor Day
weekend means our waters will
be filled with boaters, so that
means U.S. Coast Guard crews
will be patrolling, conducting
safety checks, and watching for
people boating while intoxicated
or operating in an unsafe man-
ner.
Additionally, with tropioal
storm activity in the Atlantic,
boaters are urged to monitor
weather broadcasts and be
aware of high-surf or rip current
advisories. The National
Weather Service broadcasts
marine weather forecasts regu-
larly on Channels 1 through 5 on

Causley originally proposed
a $303,000 budget for the next
fiscal year, but offered to oper-
ate the entire department for
80 percent of total fees collect-
ed, or 65. percent of the fees if
the city keeps its five building
employees. The total adopted
2008 budget for the Building
Department is $589,000.
"Due to the downturn of the
economy, what's happening is
a lot of places are going to a
percentage-of-fees basis,"
Causley said at Tuesday's City
Council meeting.
The city estimates $560,000
in fee revenue in the next fis-
cal year, which at 80 percent
means Causley would operate
the Building Department for
$448,000. Burnett's in-house
estimate is. $499,347.
Causley pointed out his
staff of 85 employees
statewide is cross-trained in
every aspect of building
inspection and capable of
moving at any time to accom-
modate the city.


"It's more than numbers, it
affects the people of
Marathon, too," Burnett told
the Keynoter. "If we're play-
ing a strict numbers game, it
might be even."
Burnett said there is value
in having all Building
Department employees answer
to the city and that the depart-
ment will be more efficient
and user-friendly.
"I'm more than confident
that when we have our own
staff ... we will be able to
accommodate," he said. "We
may sign a supplemental con-
tract with Causley; it's provid-
ed for in the $499,000."
The council seemed intent
on letting Burnett make the
final decision, despite approv- ,
ing a motion for Finance
Director Peter Rosasco to pre-
pare hard numbers on
Causley's proposal.
"It is written in the charter
the manager is here to manage
the day-to-day and if he thinks
it's best, I'm willing to go
along with it," Vice Mayor
Chris Bull said.

In lieu of flowers, Lorie asks that donations be made to:
The Keys Center for Girls at FKCC,

(a countywide organization that David has supported in the past.)


David Vance Mullins of Marathon, Florida
was born April .24, 1950 to Sally and Oxford
Mullins in Randolph County, Arkansas.
David died peacefully at home on August 23,
2008 after a short battle with cancer. He is
survived by his beloved wife, Lorie Mullins,
who was by his side at his time of death. He
is also survived by his children and step-chil-
dren, Beth Ellis of Tennessee, Todd Dawn of
Tennessee and Jesse Gallo of Virginia Beach.
David is also survived by 6 brothers, John
Mullins, Jim Mullins, Frank Mullins, Jack
Mullins, Mack Mullins and Joe Mullins and
his wife, Betty, and 3 sisters, Emma Prillhart
(Momma), Esther Blair and Deanna Carter,
mother-in-law Wanda Williams Contich and
her husband, Bill, of Ridge Manor, Florida,
father- in-law, Harold Lowry and his wife,
Louise, of Canal Winchester, Ohio, brother-
.in- laws Burt Williams and his wife, Tammy,

David served in the US Army from 1967-
1975. He moved to Marathon in 1999 and
was a founding member and President of
Sunrise Construction. He was appointed to


the City of Marathon Code Compliance
Board of Directors on November 28, 2006
and resigned July 7, 2008. He was Treasurer

tors at one time. David was also a member of
the Florida Keys Contractors Association and
the Marathon Power Squadron.

David loved scuba diving, riding motorcycles
with Marky & Gail and spending time on his
boat with his wife. His ashes will be spread
at Sombrero Lighthouse at a later date.

David was a little stout in stature which he
had to be in order to house such a big caring
and giving heart. The legacy of a man is best
measured in the hearts and minds of the peo-
ple he has touched while living. Many will
mourn the loss of David, but close friends
and family will celebrate both his past life
and his new life. David's brother Joe Mullins
says that he witnessed the forging of David's
character as from a simple piece of wrought
iron into a product of the finest steel. David
was very rich in the giving and receiving of
love from many whose lives he touched. M

The assessment on the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce building went from $618,377 last
year to $871,530 this year. If the assessment holds, the chamber will pay $7,000 in property taxes
to Monroe County, a 54 percent increase over last year's $4,553.



High values shock some


Business owners
to see big jump
in property taxes
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

When property owners
opened their tax notices this
week, they probably saw a wel-
come decrease in their assess-
ments if they own homes. But
many commercial property own-
ers saw something much differ-
ent.
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce President Jackie
Harder wouldn't repeat the exact
words she used when she opened
the tax notice for the chamber's
property, which showed a 41
percent increase in assessed
value, from $618,377 last year to
$871,530.
If the proposed tax rates are
adopted, the chamber will pay
$7,000 in property taxes this
year a 54 percent increase
from last year's $4,553.
Harder said nothing has been
added or changed at the two-
story, 5,000-square-foot building


that fronts U.S. 1 at mile marker
105. The office was built 11
years ago and also houses a
Keys visitors' center.
"Have I done anything
besides blow my top and clutch
my chest and scream? Yes, I
called the property appraiser's
office right away," Harder said.
"When they say the overall tax
roll has dropped 3 or 4 percent,
how can mine go up by 40 [per-
cent]? How does that happen? I
don't get it."
The 2008 tax roll shows
Monroe County's total taxable
land value decreased 3.6 per-
cent, nearly $1 billion, from last
year.
Nearly all of that decrease
came from non-homesteaded
residential properties, the total
value of which fell 6 percent,
from $15.6 billion to $14.6 bil-
lion.
The total value of cormmer-
cial properties in the Keys, on
the other hand, increased 5.5
percent, from $4.34 billion to
$4.58 billion.
"Different segments of the
market act and perform differ-


ently," Assistant Monroe County
Property Appraiser Karl
Borglum said. "While there is
evidence of a decline in residen-
tial values, there is no evidence
of a decline in commercial val-
ues. And in fact, some commer-
cial values in some areas are
continuing to go up."
The trend extends beyond the
Keys. The South Florida
Business Journal recently report-
ed commercial property values
rising 2.7 percent in Palm Beach
County, 5.2 percent in Broward
and 5.8 percent in Miami-Dade.
Those same counties saw overall
taxable values drop.
When valuing a property,
appraisers generally look at
rental income and vacancy rates,
replacement value of the struc-
ture, value .of the underlying
land and sales of comparable
properties.
Borglum said for 2008 val-
ues, appraisers only consider
sales that occurred during the
2007 calendar year. .He said
because commercial sales have
been fairly stagnant in the Keys,

for a job.
After more than 25 years
in the business. Atkinson ,
finally has a place to call her
own.

Atkinson moved into her
new location Aug 1 and says
she plans to add a retail see-.

"I will be getting a luau
section, a pirate section,
birthday gags and gifts and a
full.stock of balloons, What I
try to do is get a little bit.pf
retail that other people don't
have," she said.
Atkinson said her time :
spent in the Keys has been
helpful in getting the busi-
ness off the ground. She said-
her customers appreciate the
dedication and pride Mile

Appraiser can 'work out the knots'


ASSESS / From 19

relied on formulas and models to
assign values.
"We build a mass appraisal
model of the sales you have and
then apply that to the general
population [of properties]," said
Borglum, adding that the model-
ing was recently updated for
commercial values.
"I suspect at $618,000,


maybe the [chamber's] property
was undervalued last year," he
said. "But this is the time we
work out the knots. We can take
another look at a single property
on the basis of how well we
think they fit the model, and we
can change it."
Borglum said his office had-
n't received any more questions
or complaints than in previous
years. Many commercial proper-
ty owners have lawyers who dis-


.pule their assessments every
.) ear, whether they go up or
dJoA n.
Robert Stoky, owner of Sefior
Frijoles restaurant in Key Largo,
had handled his tax notices that
way in the past. But this year, he
said he's going to the property
appraiser's office himself after
the restaurant's property at mile
marker 103.9 increased in
assessed value from $1.18 mil-
lion to $1.6 million.


Photo by DAVID BALL
Jackie Harder, president of the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce, looks over the notice of assessment that she
received from the Monroe County Property Appraiser's Office.


"I have recent appraisals, and
the [Truth in Millage] values are
higher than the recent appraisals,"
Stoky said. "Obviously in a
declining real estate market with
economic pressures, I don't think
the property did go up that much
last year."
Stoky said the increase would
add $4,300 to property taxes on
Senior Frijoles this year. He said
assessed values of his other
commercial properties, includ-
ing Dairy Queen in Tavernier,
Ballyhoos in Key Largo and
Marker 88 restaurant in


Islamorada, all went up, while
the assessments on his residen-
tial properties went down.
Harder said she'll likely have
to increase advertising rates on
the chamber's Web site and in its
monthly newsletter to make up
for the increased taxes. Stoky
said he plans to take his case in
front of the Value Adjustment
Board, which rules on such peti-
tions.
Property owners have until
Sept. 15, to file a petition if the
property appraiser's office can't
resolve a value dispute.

'Western Union' gets love from locals

sel built in Florida and the
grand flagship of Key
West's Conch Republic. And
Key West, it now appears, is
going to be able to hold onto her
for the long haul.
The Tourist Development
Council last month voted to rec-
ommend awarding $405,000 for
restoration of the Western Union,
the 130-foot schooner docked at
the foot of William Street at the
historic waterfront. It was a quick
meeting, and the decision was
unanimous. "I think what was
exciting to us was this was an
authentic piece of Key West his-
tory," says Julie Fondriest, chair-
woman of the TDC's district
advisory committee for Key West.
The Western Union was built
in 1939 and pushed into the,
water in April of that year at the

the Pier House. The chief builder
was Heber Elroy Arch, a native
of the Cayman Islands. He had
help from six men from Grand
Cayman Island and four laborers
from Key West.
The Western Union was built
as a working boat, and that's
what she's been for the majority
of her life. She was owned by

Caribbean. There was enough
space in her main cargo hold for
20 miles of cable and 80 tons of
cargo.
Key West lost the Western
Union at least twice once in
the late 1970s when she was
taken up to the Chesapeake Bay
to work as a tour boat. And
again in 1984 when she was
bought by an Arizona-based
nonprofit group that used her for
the rehabilitation of troubled
kids. Most recently, she was
owned by Historic Tours of

great and in August of 2006, she
stopped taking tours and was put

Robin Deck, Quincy Perkins, Shawna Wynd and Marc Crow (in tie) gave the top performances of the night in 'Toast-O-Matic.' The play also won for top set, the
work of Michael Hawkin, and script, written in just one night by Key West natives Jolly Benson and Nick Vagnoni.


Another 24 hours, another 'One Night Stand'


Magic happened
at the Studios
of Key West
R obin Deck as a curler-
head trailer trash mama
led the Toast-o-Matic
team to a triple victory at The
Studios of Key West's "Another
One Night Stand" last weekend.
It was a busy weekend for The
Studios of Key West. Thursday
was the Walk on White; Friday
was the opening reception for the
writers, artists, sponsors and
actors of "Another One Night
Stand." Saturday all day.was a
fire ant hill of activity getting the
five plays on the stage.
Five caffeinated writers drew
actors' photos out of a hat and
received their required opening
line ("Reginald, they told me
you were dead"), last line ("This
isn't what I had in mind") and
integral prop (a bag of Atocha
pieces of eight) at the Friday
night event and worked all night
to produce a script with those
elements to be crafted into per-
formance for Saturday night, 24
hours later.
Ten hours later the scripts
were back, breakfast was being
assembled and the directors and
writers were conferring. Then
the set designers and actors
arrived. Artists drew their plays
out of a sack and read them over
breakfast.
Actors and directors split for
various locations to rehearse and
the Studios became a multiple
set workshop. Connie Gilbert


dashed out
with lists
of props to
collect for
F the five
plays.
T Buckets
'of paint,
ladders,
skill saws,
drop cloths
and five 9-
foot-by-15-
Judi Bradford foot can-
vasses
were swarmed by nine artists.
Volunteers showed up mid-day
to help slap paint. Lunch came
and went; the clock spun around
and around.
Four-thirty. One hour left to
finish the sets. The indefatigable
Lauren McAloon, facilities
manager for The Studios, who


has been fetching brushes, tools,
boards and fasteners for the set
designers, begins cleaning up
paint trays, washing brushes,
schlepping debris away.
Project Coordinator Elena
Devers, comfortable in the
chaos, has been wherever she's
needed all day since 6 a.m. Now
she's showered and in high heels
and a sundress, ready to oversee
the opening night wine bars,
direct the volunteer bartenders,
set out flowers and welcome the
sold-out audience.
First, dinner appears like
magic. As the directors and
actors drift back in, Gilbert drags
unlikely prop objects back and
sorts them out and artists realize
time is up. Fatigue reveals itself
in all the participants, but the
meal of oriental noodles, bread
and salad revives everyone.

Sister Funk to open Womenfest


Women rockers
will play twice

Sister Funk will open the
22nd annual Womenfest
on Tuesday, Sept. 2 with a
concert at Chelsea House at 709
Truman Avenue from 6-9 p.m.
And they'll be back for the big

headlining with hip-hop and
soul duo God-des & She, a
group that won wide recogni-
tion after a guest appearance on
the Showtime television series
"The L Word."
Sister Funk last appeared at
Womenfest in 2006, and is back

Sex in a can?


Special energy
drink invented
In Key West
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
The official energy drink of
this year's Fantasy Fest is
the subtly named Sex
Drive. It comes in a black can
with red logo and promises that
drinking the contents "Enhances
blood flow to vital organs." But
this is not a drink for special
occasions only. Below the above
promise it is made clear that this
is a "HIGH ENERGY DRINK
DESIGNED FOR DAILY USE."
Sex Drive is one of the spon-
sors of this year's Fantasy Fest. It
has a tangy caramel taste similar
to Red Bull, and fizzes and then
flattens down on the tongue like
the popular 90s drink, leaving
you to sit and wonder whether or
not you enjoyed the experience.
It.is difficult to decide.
Sex Drive was invented in late
2007 by Key West businessman
Steve Utley, now CEO and
cofounder of the company. The
company's Web site announces
that Utley's current focus is on
the launch of SDEP (Sex Drive
Energy Drink) "with an aggres-
sive plan for phenomenal
growth." It also lists two business


partners James Spreitzer, who
as president is running the com-
pany's day-to-day operations out
of Key West; and Paul Mendoza,
director of international sales and
a former Navy fighter pilot.
But to the contents. Sex
Drive, according to the can, is
infused with two grams of L-
Arginine "for enhanced perform-
ance" and also with horny goat
weed extract (50 milligrams). In
addition, there's caffeine,
Inositol, Taurine, Mace Root
Extract, and 250 percent of your
daily recommended allowance of
Vitamin B6. In all there are 17
"specially-formulated ingredi-
- ents." The $64 million question,
of course, is: Does it work? Does
it really pick you up, and does it
really enhance your drive?
Arginine, an amino acid, is
used to treat erectile dysfunction,
and has numerous other attrib-
utes, including reducing the risk
of heart disease. Horny goat
weed is a Chinese herb, also
known as Epimedium, that is
thought to have aphrodisiac
qualities. It got its name from a
Chinese goat herder, who,
according to legend, noticed
increased activity among the
goats of his flock after they'd
been eating the herb.
Whether a small beverage
that contains some of these
ingredients can change your
mood has not been proven. But


What can this can do for you?
Key West inventers of Fantasy
Fest energy drink claim it will
sex you up and improve your
health.
revelers at Fantasy Fest are free
to try the drink for themselves to
find out.
Sex Drive can be sampled
around Key West in October. If
you can't wait that long, it can be
ordered in twos (with a free T-
shirt!) or by the case at www.sex
driveenergydrink.com.

More restoration is coming


'WESTERN UNION' / From 22

Theo Glorie, the owner of the
Caroline Street coffee shop and
.Internet caf6 Coffee Plantation,
saw her sitting there morith after
month at the bottom of William
'Street with a for sale sign affixed
to her hull. "It really didn't look
that good for a ship," he says.
"Everybody was a little afraid of
starting this project."
Glorie says he didn't know a
lot about boats: His only experi-
ence was chartering a schooner
with his wife out of St. Thomas
in the Virgin Islands a .few years
ago. But he says he saw the
potential for the Western Union,
for Key West keeping the ship
on the island and using it for
educational purposes.
The Western Union was for
sale for about a year when Glorie
started working with others to
form a nonprofit to acquire it. Guy
de Boer was one of those involved
almost from the beginning. He'd
approached developer Ed Swift,
the principal owner of Historic'
Tours of America, and began to
talk with him about buying the
boat. De Boer says that at one


point, Swift realized they had no
money. But to de Boer's amaze-
ment, that didn't put a stop to
negotiations. "Ed kept going, 'OK,
OK,'" says de Boer. "He had
offers from other places to buy the
ship, but in the end he decided to
donate this." Historic Tours of
America agreed to donate the
Western Union to a non-profit on
the condition that it be preserved
and kept in Key West.
The newly formed Schooner
Western Union Preservation
Society acquired the ship last
year, and in December, sent her
to a shipyard in Miami to make
her once again seaworthy. The
insurance company wasn't
crazy about having her make
the voyage, offering Glorie and
the others a small window of
time to sail her there, when the
waves were expected to be no
more than 2-3 feet. The weath-
er, however, changed, and the
ship pitched and rolled and it
appeared, for a time, that she
might not reach her destination.
In Miami, she got a lot of new
lines, and some new wood.
The Coast Guard looked the
ship over on her return to Key
West and re-issued a certificate


on July 3, making her eligible to
once again take tours.
A sunset sail was hastily
organized for July 4.
The Western Union now
takes passengers on sunset tours
seven nights a week, for just $39
per person. It's a unique oppor-
tunity to sail on a historic vessel
for not a lot of money. And it
won't be around for a lot longer.
The Western. Union still needs a
lot of work, and the members of
the society are working now on
reviewing plans for a major
restoration that will involve
replacing the ship's deck, which
is leaking and beyond repair.
The deck replacement, to cost
more than $800,000, may start
as soon as December. The plan
is to have the work done in Key
West, using local laborers. The
members of the Preservation
Society are now negotiating with
the city of Key West to pull the
Western Union out of the water
at the Truman Annex.
Sunset tours on the Western
Union leave from the bottom of
William Street every night at
6:30 p.m. Purchase tickets at the
dock, or for reservations call
292-1766.

The new Dodge Chargers pack a punch they can reach 160 mph, so there's little chance of outrunning whoever's behind
the wheel.


Charge of the flashing light brigade

New Hemi-equipped Chargers give deputies the edge against aggressive drivers
By RYAN McCARTHY 7
rmccarthy@keynoter.com. .


If you have a habit of reckless
driving, the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office has some new
reasons for you to break it.
The Sheriff's Office was
recently awarded a $200,000
federal Aggressive Driving
Grant to help curb what has
become a serious problem here
in the Keys. It used the money to
purchase three fully equipped
,2008 Dodge Chargers.
The unmarked cars have all
the bells and whistles radar,
in-car cameras, computers and
other law enforcement equip-
ment and the lucky deputies
who get to use them have been
targeting aggressive drivers
throughout the Keys for about a
week.
Sgt. Kevin Mimosa says
Monroe County placed first in
the state in its population catego-
ry in five of eight criteria used to
determine rates of aggressive
and reckless driving throughout
the state.
"That's high standards that
you don't want to have," he said.
The categories include aggres-


sive driving, alcohol-related
incidents and speeding.
Mimosa said while the word .
will eventually get out about the
Chargers, for now the cars are
proving invaluable for spotting
reckless drivers. Drivers aren't
able to identify the Chargers as
police vehicles because their
lighting package is inside the car.
"We've already [had drivers]
pass us in a no-passing zone
because it's not a normal police
car," he said adding one
motorcycle driver passed one of
the new Chargers going in
excess of 100 mph. "For the


Driving one of the new
Chargers, Deputy Luis
Blasco had no trouble
pulling over this
Hummer Thursday in
the Stanley Switlik
Elementary School
speed zone. The driver
was going above the
20 mph limit. Fines for
speeding in school
zones are double what
other speeding fines
would be. The engine's
a 5.7-liter Hemi V8.
Even with that, the -
mileage isn't bad -
about 18 mpg.

Even reckless drivers about
to receive a citation apparently
still have an appreciation for a
fine automobile.
"We've had no complaints.
Some people we've given a
ticket to say, 'Hey, that's a nice
car,'" Mimosa said.
The best thing to do if you
find yourself being stopped by


a Charger is just pull over -
you won't outrun the car's 5.7-
liter Hemi V8 that can reach
speeds up to 160 mph.
"When you need the power,
the Hemi kicks in," Mimosa
said.
"Our guys are going to use
them responsibly, but if some-.
one passes you at 100 mph, it
takes a lot to catch them. These
cars are powerful, so they can
do that," Mimosa said.
Another feature useful in
this day and age is the


Charger's ability to run on only
four cylinders while officers
are cruising the Keys. Mimosa
said the cars get approximately
18 mpg.
Mimosa said he encourages
Keys residents to let the
Sheriff's Office know if there
has been a problem with reck-
less drivers in their neighbor-
hood.
"Wherever someone sees a
problem, give us a holler and
we'll put them in those areas,"
he said.

Tenacious Fins
fight to end
in tournament
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Needing just two more points,
Coral Shores High School
seemed ready to put its Keys
Invitational Volleyball
Tournament championship in the
bag Thursday.
But down 23-18 in the second
game, Marathon High School
senior Sarah Melia went to the
serving line and put the Lady
Dolphins back in the match.
Marathon rallied five straight
points to tie, 23-23, then forced a
second tie at 24-24.
The Lady Hurricanes scored


to go up, 25-24, but still needed
an overtime point.
A set gave Cane senior hitter
Hannah Padgett a chance for a
big kill shot but she went for the
drop instead, catching Marathon
defenders off guard for the win-
ning point, 25-17, 26-24.
"Things got a little nervy for
us at the end but Hannah put it
down," Canes coach Andy
Thiery said. "That was the smart
play. With our experience, we
should see more of that this
year."
The Canes won their second
straight tournament title in the
all-Keys tournament without
dropping a game, beating Island
Christian in the semifinals, 25-
10,25-10.

A rebuilt Island Christian
defense rang up a shutout, 4-0, in
the Eagles' boys soccer opener
Thursday.
Senior striker Aaron Izaguirre
scored the first three goals of the
ICS season as the Eagles topped
Calusa Prep. Jon Cruciger
capped the victory by bending his
corner kick into the Calusa net
for a goal.


"We definitely looked like a
team that had only three or four
days of practice," said coach
Robert Lucas, whose squad saw
its preseason cut short ,by
Tropical Storm Fay.
Work by returning goalie
Phillip Izaguirre and the defense
kept the Eagles in contention
while they worked things out.
Calusa's Colts looked evenly
matched with ICS through the
first half, which closed with the
Eagles holding a narrow 1-0
edge.
"We had all kinds of scoring
chances," Lucas said, "but we

The 2008 Key West High
School swimming team will try
to utilize a home-pool advan-
tage this season as it hosts five
meets at the Florida Keys

VOLLEYBALL / From 34

"It's important we got off to a
good start," Cane senior Julia
Hatfield said. "I think this team
can look like this every time we
play."
Marathon earned the runner-
up spot with a 25-17, 25-20 win
over Key West High School in
the semifinal.
"Overall, I'm very proud of
our team. They hustled after
every ball," Marathon coach
Kelly Eigner said. "We got down
against Coral Shores but they
fought back and tied it up."
The Lady Conchs grabbed
third with a .25-21, 25-17 deci-
sion over Island Christian in the
consolation contest.
After the tournament, the
Keys coaches assessed their pro-
grams:

Coral Shores
"This team has progressed
more by this point in the season
than we've had in the past,"
Thiery said.
"We're more versatile with
good players at every spot. We
have middle and left hitters, and
our right hitters aren't bad, he
said.
Senior Lauren Kelleher made
the most of increased playing
time with several key points.
"Now we have to work on


[receiving serves] and our pass-
ing," Thiery said.

Marathon
Veterans Vanessa Sardina and
Melia anchored the Dolphins,
Eigner said, while senior hitter
Morgan Longstreth "had an
amazing game on offense.... She
was hitting everything set to her."
Ashley Hooper showed "she
has a cannon of a serve," said
Eigner, a Marathon grad taking
over the net squad this fall.
With starter Kelley Struyf
missing the tournament with
another commitment, junior-var-
sity players Annabelle Walker
and Michelle Sardina made big
contributions, Eigner said.

Key West
"We're glad we got that first
W under our belts," said second-
year Lady Conch coach Jessy
Hulme.
"We need to do a better job of
playing our game and taking con-
trol," she said. "We tend to play
up or down, depending on the
opponent."
In the semifinal against
Marathon, Hulme said, "We
worked on a defense we learned
[Wednesday] night. Our two hit-
ters wound up acting as setters."
The Conchs straightened out
and took advantage of a height
advantage at the net against
Island Christian.


Island Christian
"I'm very pleased," said ICS
coach Sheryl Yost, who uses the
tournament to tune for the regular
season.
"We played a lot of young
girls an eighth-grader and a
couple freshmen but we
stayed in both matches," Yost
said. "Everybody played and
showed they know what they're
doing. We'll be fine."
Veterans Ashleigh Verwyst
and junior Jennifer Subic helped
steady the young squad, she said.
