Keys take $27M, hit


Storms, coverage
putting the hurt
on Keys businesses
By LARRY KAHN
Ikahn@keynoter.com

Everywhere you go, you hear
the same thing.
"Our business has been about
half," said Bobby Kay, general
manager of The Island in
Marathon. "We're having a super
year, but from the storms and the
evacuations and the snowball
effect on the local people, our
business was cut in half."
"It was a quiet couple of days.
I called most of the time, a
mandatory day off," said Theo
Glorie, owner of the Coffee
Plantation on Caroline Street in
Key West.
"With all the storms Fay,
Gustav and now Ike it's been
a killer," said. Islamorada


Outfitters tackle shop owner
Kevin McGuire. "We've only
been open a few days since late
August. We're trying to get ready
for the weekend, when hopefully
we'll have some business."
"I talked to one man who had
made $4.95 since Fay. Some
business owners haven't made
any -money since Fay," said
Jackie Harder, president of the
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce. ."I'm hearing from
my members that [officials]
pulled the trigger too soon on the
evacuation."
Those tales of woe illustrate
what the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council says has
happened: $27.7 million in lost
business in the Keys due to the
threats of Tropical Storm Fay and
hurricanes Gustav and Ike and
the perceived threat of Hurricane

"It's a combination of cancel-
lations, people who didn't come
in the first place. Then evacuating
the visitors. Then a slow return
back to the destination of the vis-
itors," TDC Director Harold
Wheeler said.
Jessica Bennett, a TDC
research analyst, said it's as much
about perception as reality. The
reality has been that the Keys
have been lucky this storm sea-
son, with the only real effect
coming from the large -amount of
rain that fell during Fay.
"Just general anxiety with all
the storms out there, cancella-
tions because the tropics were so
active," she said.
She was referring specifically
to the period between Aug. 31
and Sept. 5, when the Keys
weren't being hit by.hard weath-
er at all but satellite images
showed tropical systems. churn-
ing about even Josephine,
which spun north well into the
Atlantic and never amounted to
anything.
Those images for six days cost
the Keys $4 million, she said.
And that's just in direct losses for
such things as hotel rooms, bar
tabs and dive trips. It doesn't add
up losses from the multiplier
effect, in which money spent at
.one place is spent elsewhere. For
example, employees use their
salaries to live on and restaurants
also use their proceeds on such
-things as replenishing supplies
and bringing in cleaning crews.
To combat the storm-related
lost, business, the TDC on
Thursday launched an extensive
advertising campaign designed to
encourage visitors to return to the
Keys. The ad campaign kicked
off with radio spot buys in West
Palm Beach and Fort
Myers/Naples featuring a quickly
prepared commercial created by
Tinsley Advertising titled
"Summer Ain't Over 'Til We Say
-It's Over."
A quarter-page advertisement
with the same theme, but with a
storm-related message, was set to
run in the destinations section of
this weekend's USA Today.
The first sentence of the ad's
copy reads, "They just sounded.
the all-clear, so come on down,"
referencing the return of tourists
to the Keys.
Havifig to use the media to. get


Andy Holmes, the owner of Tiki
and Co. in Islamorada, says
he's not worried about losing
business because 'this is a
pretty slow month anyway.'
the message out is ironic because
the media especially TV sta-
tions overhype the storms,
some say.
"They scare the hell out of
everybody and do one follow-up
story and they're gone,"- Kay
said. "We have to spend our own
money on advertising and the
TDC has to spend their own
money."
"I appreciate you have a
responsibility to people and you
don't, ever want to put them in
harm's way, but I also think the
Weather Channel is out there to
sell advertising and make sure we.
watch for a whole week," said
Mike Savinelli, co-owner of the
Hurricane Grille in Marathon. "I
don't think they reported it as
honestly as they could have...."
Wheeler agrees, and while he
understands news crews have to
follow the storms when they leave
the Keys, he's frustrated they
often don't tell the complete story
of the damage or lack thereof
- when they're reporting here.
But he also believes that even
with the impressions TV viewers
have of the Keys when it comes
to Fay, Gustav, Hanna and Ike -
and any other storms that might
come there won't be a repeat
of 2006, when tourism slowed
way down following the two pre-
vious years' busy hurricane sea-
sons.
"I don't think atthis point in
time we're going to have that
negative effect we had from '04-
'05," Wheeler said.

ERs didn't really close


County used
closure threat
to spur evacuation
By MARGARET MENGE.
mmenge@keynoter.com

By last Saturday night, it
appeared that the Keys were no
longer in the path of Hurricane
Ike. So when, at a Sunday after-
noon press conference in front of
the La Concha Hotel on Duval
Street in Key West, County
Administrator Roman Gastesi
announced that the emergency
rooms at all three hospitals were
closed, the press, local and
imported, seemed stunned.
One television reporter
jumped in and asked what
"closed" meant. Gastesi backed
down, saying that if there was a
bona fide emergency, a person
could get some treatment at one
of the hospitals.
All three hospitals in the
Florida Keys stayed open with
skeletal crews during the manda-
tory evacuation, though the
county continued to communi-
cate that the hospitals and the
ERs were "closed."
"I thought they were totally
closed once the evacuation took
place," Gastesi told the Keynoter
this week.
Kim Bassett, chief executive
officer of Fishermen's Hospital,
says she told the Emergency
Operations Center staff that she
preferred that all of the commu-
nications to the press and public
state that the hospitals were
closed.
"The community needed to
evacuate. That was the order,"
*she told the Keynoter Friday.
Bassett says Fishermen's was
initially going to close on
Sunday night, but that when fore-
casts changed, they decided to
stay open with limited staff, to be
there for utility workers and
deputies who had to work and
might be injured on the job. "I
feel a real commitment to our
community to keep some kind of
basic service," she said.
At Mariners Hospital in
Tavernier, doctors Thomas Steed
and Seth Horowitz stayed at the'
hospital from Sunday through
Wednesday, along with nurses,
one radiology specialist and one
lab technician. They brought
their families along, and slept in
hospital rooms overnight, to


EMERGENCY ENTRANCE

. . ..

/ Keynoter photo by MARGARET MENGE
The emergency room at Lower Keys Medical Center on Stock
Island stayed open with a small staff, though County
Administrator Roman Gastesi had said on Sunday that the ERs
at all three hospitals were closed:


keep the hospital open for those
needing emergency care.
Mariners was able to treat 12
people over the course of the
mandatory evacuation, from
Sunday through Tuesday; One of
those was the driver of the Publix
truck that tipped over in
Islamorada Tuesday morning.
His injuries, fortunately, were
minor, and he was treated by the
Mariners skeleton crew. But if
his injuries had been severe,
Mariners would not have been
able to give him needed care,
hospital Chief Executive Officer
Nelson Lazo warns.
One woman who went to
Mariners with a compound ankle
fracture while the mandatory
evacuation was in effect was
treated and then transported to a
hospital in Miami-Dade County.
But Lazo says once wind speeds
reach 37 mph, ambulances can
no longer travel.
The announcement that the
emergency rooms in the Keys
were closed led many businesses
to close up shop, saying they
wouldn't want to be held legally
responsible for employees or cus-
tomers who might be hurt when
no medical treatment was to be
had.
Those businesses included
Dion's, which closed all of its 10
gas stations in the Keys, citing
concern for employees and legal
liability; and the Tropic Cinema,
which closed on Sunday and
remained closed through
Tuesday, saying they didn't think
it was responsible to remain open
while ERs were closed.
There is no state law that
requires hospitals to close'during


a mandatory evacuation of resi-
dents. But Bassett says that in
2004, during Hurricane Ivan, the
state's Agency for Health Care
Administration ordered all three
hospitals in the Keys to close.
She says there was a big
"brouhaha" in Monroe County
about that order and that the state
has allowed hospitals greater dis-
cretion in the years since.

Keys Opinion


Sept. 11, 2001, changed

our country forever

(Editor's note: It's. been seven years since the tragedy of Sept.
11, 2001. Lest we forget, we're reprinting the editorial that
appeared in this newspaper the next day, on Sept. 12, 2001.)

Anxiety.
Anger.
Apprehension.
The feelings that swept through many on Tuesday, struck all
.three chords.
A flurry of phone calls to loved ones was one common denom-
inator, regardless of where you live. or whether you had friends
or family directly imperiled in New York or Washington.
The nationwide shutdown of airports and the horror of reports
'that filled TV screens and radio broadcasts touched us all.
Scenes of the World Trade Center towers collapsing, moun-
tains of dust and debris rainingdown on fleeing New Yotkers,
are hard to erase from the memory.
Repeated videotapes. showing the jumbo jet veering into the
Manhattan tower, flames exploding out the other side, trigger
shudders and mental calculations-on the loss of life yet to be
counted. I -
More than one sober and serious citizen. confessed to avert-
ing their gaze, turning off their television sets because they
couldn't watch any more mayhem.
In our own community, World War II veterans and their fam-
ilies witnesses to Pearl Harbor -- see parallels in the unpro-
voked attack and wonder if so little has changed in a half cen-
tury after all.
Young people, with no memory of World War II or Korea or
Vietnam, find it hard to measure their reactions. But mid-day,
talking with young people; we werestruck by their calls for
revenge and retaliation. This from a generation raised on the
end of Cold War and the promise of globalization, peace and
prosperity.
These attacks on the seat of government in Washington and
the financial capital of New York are the worst on the U.S.
mainland in modem history. And surely the loss of life will
exceed the 2,000 killed in the infamous dawn raid on Pearl
Harbor more than a half century ago. .
In the days to come, there will be plenty of second-guessing
and finger pointing and worse, focused on the state of U.S.
intelligence gathering and ineffectual responses to neutralize
terrorists abroad..
But a very real test of this nation's will comes in how well we
resist the natural pull of anger on one extreme and apprehen-
sion on the other.
Because when you talk with the generation that survived
World War II, you realize both reactions can sap our strength
and our spirit.

Evacuation call with Ike looming was a no-brainer


EDITOR:
Again I read with dismay the story of
whether evacuations are effective and neces-
sary. I just cannot believe that anyone can
question the evacuation for Hurricane Ike.,
Let's do another scenario for the past week.
Hurricane Ike heading toward the Keys.
Mandatory evacuation called four days before
hitting Marathon (Friday). Tourists and non-
residents are to leave. They ask locals if it's
necessary. Locals say no, not really,
Emergency Management always gets it wrong
with the. evacuations, they say.
Only half of the tourists leave. Hurricane
Ike continues its path and looks like it's going
to hit Cuba. Forecasters say computers project
the path changing and possible weakening over
land if Ike hits Cuba.
Next day (Saturday), the majority of locals
ignore evacuation order. However, they prepare
for Ike by grabbing groceries and getting extra
gas. All of a sudden all gas stations along U.S.
1 run out of gas.
Forecasters say Ike will hit Cuba but still
cannot predict with certainty Ike's path. Still,
locals and tourists ignore warnings. Gas com-,
panies are unable to provide total replenish-
ment supplies for gas stations. Groceries in
stores run out. Ike still is on a projected path to


hit Cuba. However, Emergency Management is
under pressure from local businesses and
"politicians to reconsider the evacuation order.
They relook at the situation. They decide
Sunday morning that they cannot rescind the
order in light of being unable to project the
path of Ike.
Monday morning, Ike's eye collapses over
land and reforms another eye north of Cuba.
Ike's path is now projected to hit the Middle
Keys in 12 hours, strengthening all the time.
Pure pandemonium and panic sets in.
First out are the remaining tourists who
suck up the remaining fuel and clog UV.S. 1. A
truck carrying groceries southbound flips over.
on U.S. 1, blocking all traffic in either direc-
tion. U.S. 1 becomes a parking lot of displaced
frightened people who can neither go forward
nor back. Weather is deteriorating by the
minute and for those who stayed at home, all
they can do is hunker dowrt.
I leave the rest because what can happen is
beyond imagination and to be truthful, too
scary to think about. Let's get out of our heads
this train of thought that we will wait and see.
There is no wait and see; a lot people can lose
their lives if a major storm hits the Keys,
Robert Lyne
Long Key


Except for storms, mainland news stations ignore the Keys


EDITOR:
The television news stations out of Miami
are all about reporting the news of "South
Florida" but unless it's weather related, the
Keys are very rarely included.
Look at this past incident with Hurricane
Ike: As soon as Miami-Dade and Broward
counties were out of the cone, the storm
reports seemed less focused on the Keys,
except for a few blurbs here and there. We
saw plenty of Miami's mayor and its emer-
gexncy operations center but no mention from
our EOC. There was also no broadcast that
listed times our buses would help evacuate
residents. Our EOC public phone number was
hardly posted at-all. Long after there was
clearly no threat to Miami-Dade and
Broward, the mayor was still taking up air-
time.
Just like Miami, we have homicides, traffic
accidents and newsworthy community events.
Remember? We have Key West.
Did you know that the Federal Emergency
Management Agency is making it almost
impossible for locals to build on their own
property? A crash that occurred on the Long
Key Bridge Thursday around 4 p.m. closed
the highway down for an hour and a half and
sent a local business owner to Jackson
Memorial Hospital via helicopter and another
man to Mariners Hospital, along with an
infant.
Two bodies that were found floating in
nearshore waters.off the Keys were both
females that are believed to be victims of
domestic violence. Neither time'did I see the
suspects' pictures posted on any broadcasts.


Did I mention that both victims and suspects
were out of Miami-Dade County (Hialeah
and South Miami)? Does.that make it news-
worthy?
More recently, in the past few nights, I saw
reports about the relief efforts for Haiti and
the islands of Turks and Caicos. Channel 7
showed a firehouse with significant space to
be filled and asked residents of Miami to help
out. How can we Keys residents help? Who
can I contact to stretch the help down here?
It's all about Miami-Dade and Broward
counties when you refer to "South Florida,"
and that's not right.

Buses filled up for Ike


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Bussing people out of the
Keys during a mandatory evac-
uation can be complicated, but
officials throughout the county
say they were successful under
the threat of Hurricane Ike.
"We've been doing this for a
good number of years,". Key
West Transportation Director
Myra Wittenberg said, "so
we're getting practiced at it.
We can keep the highways
moving better by using buses
rather than having everyone
evacuating in their cars."
The city takes the lead in
countywide evacuations,
Wittenberg said.
Between 4 a.m. Sept. 6 and
2 p.m. Monday, the. city bused
208 Keys residents nine.
busloads to Florida
International University, the
official. hurricane shelter for
Monroe County..
In addition, the Monroe
County School district stepped


in, dedicating eight buses to
the effort and bringing the total
number of evacuees carried out
of the Keys to. 355.
Under Key West's plan, no
one should have to wait more
than two hours to hit the road
to Miami and the FIU.shelter,
-Wittenberg said. City buses
circulated the city until full,
then headed up U.S. 1. In addi-
tion, other buses pick up peo-
ple along U.S.1.
City buses can hold between
23 to 35 people depending on
the model, and school buses
can hold about 40 people.
Schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said the school
buses made stops at various
staging areas throughout the
Keys to be sure everyone who
wanted a ride had one.
According to J.B. Hunt,
chapter advancement officer
with the American Red Cross,
275 people from the general
-population hunkered down in


FIU along with another 65 spe-
cial-needs residents; earlier
numbers were estimates.
People who should not be
alone but are not in need of
constant medical attention are
classified as special-needs citi-
zens.
People with special medical
needs, including the residents
of Bayshore Manor, were taken
in county-owned buses to nurs-
ing homes on the mainland.
The buses started running
residents home from FIU
beginning at 8 a.m.
Wednesday. By 12:45, the last
of the evacuees had boarded a
southbound bus for the Keys,
Hunt said.

acrean@keynoter.com


Monroe County residents
who disagree with the official
assessed value of their homes
have been given a three-day
reprieve due to the threat of
Hurricane Ike.
Residents now have until
Sept. 18 to challenge their
newest assessment if they don't
agree with it.
According to state law, resi-
dents have 25 days after the
Truth in Millage Notices are
mailed in which to challenge the
assessed value -placed on their
property by the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office.
"They have 25 days to con-
test and file an appeal," said
Karl Borglum, deputy property
appraiser. "That, however,
would have been on the 13th,
which is on the weekend. So it
was automatically extended to
the 15th. But with the mandato-
ry evacuation, people now have
until the 18th to file and be con-
sidered timely."
Even after the. 18th, people


can still file a challenge,
Borglum said. But it would be
up to a hearing officer to decide
whether they had good reason
for filing after the 18th.
Assessments- are tricky
because they are based on the
market value of the previous
year. That means TRIM notices
this year will likely be the first to
begin reflecting the real estate
downturn that's hit the Keys.
But while many homeowners
might see a drop in value, com-
mercial property owners com-
plain just the opposite in some
areas.
For example, Robert Stoky,
owner of Senior Frijoles restau-
rant in Key Largo, told the
Keynoter in. late August that
according to his TRIM notice,
the property value of his busi-
ness rose from $1.18 million to
$1.6 million, meaning a $4,300
increase in his taxes.
Stoky plans to challenge the
assessment- with the Value
Adjustment Board, which rules
on such petitions.

Restaurant owner critically injured


Adames collides
head on with
another auto
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A head-on collision Thursday
afternoon on the south end of the
Long Key Bridge has left the
owner of two Keys restaurants in
the Intensive Care Unit at the
Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Marathon resi--
dent Santiago Adames, 42, was
traveling south in a 2005 Toyota
when he collided with a 2000
Nissan driven Key West resident
Timothy Prigge at mile marker 64
around 4 p.m. as Adames


attempted to pass a car in the
northbound land of U.S. 1.
Prigge was also seriously
injured and airlifted to the Ryder
Trauma Center.
Elizabeth Coats, 43, along
with a child, were passengers in
the Nissan. The FHP says both
were- transported to Mariners
Hospital in Tavernier.
Adames owns two Keys
restaurants, Miami Subs in
Marathon and Country Gulls in
Tavernier. Jovie Manalili, a
cashier working at Miami Subs,
said a family friend called to
update her on his condition at 10
a.m. Friday.
"He is in [the intensive care
unit] and isn't responding to any-
thing," Manalili said, adding she

November auto accident.
Jennifer L. Susko, 36,
remained in the Monroe County
Detention Center on Plantation
Key at press time Friday under a
bond of $150,000.
Robert D. Reid, 48, died when
a 1998 GMC sport utility vehicle,
driven by Susko crashed through
a fence and plunged into a pond
near the former Treasure Village
complex on Plantation Key,
according to a Florida Highway
Patrol account.
The driver "failed to negotiate
a turh" at 10:40 p.m. Nov. 24 at
Treasure Harbor Drive, the
Highway Patrol said. Susko
escaped from the sinking vehicle
but Reid, also an Islamorada res-
ident, didn't.
Both Susko and Reid had been
drinking, according to the FHP.
Charges were withheld pend-
ing completion of the traffic
homicide investigation.
"It's been a complicated legal
case with challenging evidence,"
said Matthew Helmerich,
spokesman for the Monroe
County State Attorney's Office.

Firefighters silent for 9/11 r


Keys volunteers
honor sacrifices
of NYC colleagues
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com,

Key Largo volunteer fire-
fighters and ambulance corps
members, officers, members of
,the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office and Keys officials com-
memorated the seventh anniver-
sary of the Sept. 11,2001, terror-
ist attacks at the fire depart-
ment's north station.


The ceremony on an overcast
Thursday morning was a somber
event honoring not only the 341
New York City firefighters and
two city emergency medical
technicians who lost their lives
at the World Trade Center, but
also the 60 police officers and
2,571 civilians and military per-
sonnel who were also killed that
day in New York, Virginia and
Shanksville, Pa.
Key Largo firefighters bbwed
their heads in silence as a bell
rang 15 times. They were later
led in prayer by the department's


past battalion chief and present
pastor, Ike Beal.
Beal cited the heroism of the
New York firefighters and emer-
gency workers on 9/11 as a stan-
dard that all first responders
should strive toward.
"Three-hundred forty-three of
our brothers and sisters were
murdered that day doing their
job," Beal said to the small
crowd. "They set the standard
for .firefighters. They raised the
bar. We shall never forget, we
can't forget. That's my challenge
to you men and women today."
* Garcia told the men and
women of his department and
the ambulance corps that they
must live up to the sacrifices
made that day seven years ago
by their colleagues in New York.
"To the fire department and
ambulance corps, we're carrying
the torch for those who paid the
ultimate price," Garcia said.

Beal said after the ceremony
that his most lasting memory of
9/11 was the feeling of together-
ness and support most people in
the country showed each other in
the attacks' aftermath.


"Disaster pulls neighbors
together. Look at [Hurricane]
Andrew. Neighbors who didn't
talk to each other were helping
each other out," Beal said. "That
was phenomenal."

Already battered, by two
storms -this season, Florida Keys
lobster fishermen scrambled to
get their traps out of harm's way
as Hurricane Ike neared.
Initial reports late this week
indicate the effort may have
helped limit gear losses from the
latest tropical storm.
"There were hardly any traps
left near the reef," Middle Keys
fisherman Jeff Cramer said. "Our
guys are dead from stacking traps
but [the trap loss] doesn't seem


too bad so far. They've been con-
tinuously moving them."
Several fishermen qualified
their assessments since ongoing
winds made it nearly impossible
for boats to venture onto the
oceanside until late Thursday or
Friday.
Traps on the bayside of the
Keys chain apparently suffered
little damage from the steady
east-to-south winds spun off by
Ike's passing.
Fishermen were able to move
or retrieve many traps from the
more vulnerable oceanside.
"Traps moved around a little
bit but they're mostly still here,"'
Key Largo fisherman Gary Sands
said while checking his lines.
"Everybody is picking them up
and putting them back."
"This one doesn't seem to
have been as bad" as Tropical
Storm Fay in mid-August, Sands
said. .
Sands said Ike "was a com-
pletely different storm from Fay
and Gustav. The wind was from a
different direction and the water
seems to be clearing up faster."
Cramer said oceanside fisher-
men "probably moved 80 to 90
percent of their traps after the
first two storms," either to deeper
ocean waters, to protected bay-
side waters or out of the water
entirely.


Traps in deeper ocean waters
apparently weathered the storm
well, Cramer said. "It wasn't bad
enough to get down to them," he
said.
Traps left near bridges or
nearshore flats appear were more
likely to get tossed.
"This storm lasted so long,

Gay adoption ruling hailed


Keys judge rules
in favor of
Key West pair
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Monroe County Circuit
Court Judge David Audlin has
ruled as unconstitutional a 31-
year-old state law prohibiting
gay people from adopting.
Some advocates for broader
adoption rules hail the ruling
and say it could expand the
pool of prospective adoptive
parents if upheld.
Audlin's ruling declares
that Florida's ban is unconsti-
tutional and grants the petition
of a Key West man to become
the legal, adoptive parent of a
13-year-old boy he and his
partner have raised continu-
ously as foster parents since
2001.
Speaking with the Keynoter
and wishing to remain anony-
mous, the petitioner said
Friday, "Kids don't need
guardians, they need parents. I
hope this will inspire change
beyond our family."
The court questioned the
boy, identified as John Doe in
court documents: "Do you
want to be adopted by [the
petitioner] as your forever
father?" The boy replied: "Yes.
Because he, because I love
him."
"Contrary to every child
welfare principle," Audlin's
ruling reads, "...the gay adop-


tion ban operates as a conclu-
sive or irrebuttable presump-
tion that, irrespective of the
facts of any particular case, it
is never in the best interest of
any adoptee to be adopted by a
homosexual.
"The objective evidence in
this case," the judge contin-
ued, "demonstrates that the
Legislature's presumption is
not based' on established fact
and that under certain circum-
stances, it is in the best interest
of an adoptee to be adopted by
a Floridian who happens to be
gay or lesbian."
Michael Citro, executive
director of the Gay and
Lesbian Community Center of
Key West, said: "We're very
thrilled with the news." Friday,
speaking of the new adoptive
parents, he added that "any
child that could be-adopted by
them would be very lucky."
Wesley House Family
Services in Key West educates
potential foster parents and
places children with foster
families. Douglas Blomberg,
chief executive officer of
Wesley House, said, "The
overall policy for Wesley
House is whenever a child is
placed in a nurturing environ-
ment that allows him to thrive,
we support that."
Blomberg said Audlin's rul-
ing could potentially place
* more foster children with
adopted families: "I think it
would help tremendously if it's
upheld. Look at this as an


opportunity to put children
first."
An unnamed representative
of the Florida Department of
Children and Families who has
evaluated the Key West cou-,
ple's familial situation is quot-
ed in the court order as saying
that overturning the ban
"would positively affect the
number of children being
adopted every day. I think that
many more children will be
adopted if sexual orientation
was not a factor in the adop-
tion process."
Carrington Mead is a
Jacksonville-based family law
attorney who deals with gay
and lesbian rights issues. She
said Audlin's ruling may set a
localized precedent but added
that the decision could have
"little or 'no legal effect
statewide."
Mead said that following
the ruling, Florida could
choose to challenge. But
because state agents from the.
DCF have approved of the Key
West couple's parenting, Mead
said "it would be doubtful that
the state would move forward
and complain."

City finalizes $9.6 million budget for 2009


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@ keynoter.comrn


It appears the relationship
between the city of Marathon and
Building Department manager
M.T. Causley Inc. is coming to an
end.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
reiterated his desire to bring the
department in house during
Thursday's final budget hearing.
The council approved the general
fund budget of $9.6 million for
2009 with only Councilman Don
Vasil dissenting.
M.T. Causley founder Mike
Causley originally proposed 'a
$303,000 Building Department


budget for the next fiscal year,
but offered to operate the entire
department for 80 percent of total
fees collected, or 65 percent of
the fees if the city keeps its five
building employees.
"Looking at that and seeing
how the hybrid situation works, I
still say it needs. to be under the
jurisdiction of the manager and
the council and the residents of
the city of Marathon," Burnett
said.
"I had a discussion with Mike
himself. He felt the same as I do,
that the Building Department
needs to have pne single control

either through contract or the

Burnett also said the five city
employees who work in the
department indicated they have
no desire to go to work for
Causley. The total adopted 2008
budget for the Building
Department is $589,000, while
next year's is proposed at
$500,000.
The final millage rate is 1.5,
meaning residents will pay $1.50
per $1,000 of taxable assessed
property value. That rate is 2.36
percent below the rollback rate of
1.5363. Rollback rate is the tax
rate needed to generate the same
tax revenues in the next fiscal
year as in the current one.
For the second time, Vasil
voted against the budget, citing
the disadvantage homesteaded
property owners encountered on
this year's tax bill.
Properties with the exemption
saw their assessed value go up the
usual 3 percent under the Save
Our Homes constitutional
amendment despite a down hous-
ing market that saw non-home-
steaded property values decline
across Monroe County.

Vasil said he was disappointed
with the direction of the council
and that he originally sought
office to curb unnecessary gov-
ernment expansion.
"Some of my colleagues say
people are asking for services.
I'm hearing service levels are
good and that people want reduc-
tions in spending and taxes,"
Vasil said.
Mayor Pete Worthington
responded by saying residents
called for more services from


their fire department in the wake
of a June 4 fire that destroyed the
home of entertainer Robert
"Rocketman" Hudson. Marathon
Fire Rescue was widely criticized
for its handling of the fire.
The fire department budget for
next year increased $407,285 so
that three new firefighters can be
hired and each can receive a
"Kelly day," giving them an extra
24 hours off duty every three
weeks.
"This is going to be incentive
to get people to stay as employees
and I think we're doing good,"
Worthington said.


Council OKs Wagner


for Marathon chief


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


The possible consolidation of
the Islamorada and Marathon fire
rescue departments took a first
step Thursday when the
Islamorada Village Council
agreed to share its fire chief with
its southerly neighbor.
"This is the simple part,"
Councilman Dave Boerner said.
"Where it's leading is the compli-
cated part. I'n glad we're taking
it slow. But I think it's worth try-
ing."
The council, without the
absent Jill Zima Borski, unani-
mously approved an interlocal
agreement that essentially con-
tracts out the services of
Islamorada Fire Chief William
Wagner to Marathon for one year.
During that time, Wagner
would manage both departments
and analyze the potential benefits
and pitfalls of merging other
areas. He said large cost savings
and increased services could be
achieved.
"I've been a champion for the
cause to try and up our staffing
levels," Wagner said. "But I real-
ize the economy in the communi-
ty. With that in mind, we definite-
ly have to look at and at least
explore the opportunity of con-
solidating to maintain the level of
service."
The idea surfaced after
Marathon Fire Chief Dale Beaver
unexpectedly quit a month ago
amid criticism over the handling
of a few recent fires.
Marathon City Manager


Clyde Burnett then discussed the
option of sharing Wagner, who
has a long history of fire and
emergency management experi-
ence in Marathon and throughout
the Keys, with Islamorada
Manager Ken Fields.
However, the discussions also
included some talk of consolidat-
ing fire rescue departments on
Conch Key and in the city of
Layton.
"I would not want to jump
into this without a very careful
plan," Fields said. "I think there
is a potential for big [savings],
especially if we can talk to the
county, to get other areas
involved."
For this initial agreement,
Marathon would pay half the
costs ofWagner's salary and ben-
efits, which village staff estimat-
ed at $82,000.
Wagner would still be an
employee of Islamorada and
remain in the village during hur-
ricanes and other emergencies, as
Marathon already employs an
emergency management coordi-
nator.
"I know where my loyalty lies
- here in the village," Wagner
said. "We have a 30-day escape
clause if Marathon gets nervous,
if Islamorada gets nervous or I
get nervous, most importantly."
The Village Council asked for
90-day reports through the con-
tract year. Burnett said he looked
through the agreement and plans
to present it to the Marathon City
Council at its meeting on Sept. 23.

Council: Cut village staff, save money


Programs, hours
are also being
slashed at park
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The Islamorada Village
Council wants to lay off two
employees and trim other'
expenses, including costs at
Founders Park, to reduce resi-
dents' taxes for the coming year.
"I don't want to identify [the
affected staff positions] at this
time, but things would probably
be processed ,a lot slower
through city hall," said Village
Manager Ken Fields.
He said one position is "cler-
ical" and the other "professional
or semi-professional."
In a Wednesday workshop,
Fields warned the council that
any cuts from the budget would
directly result in decreased serv-
ices to residents. Five hours
later, the board had cut $525,000
- nearly 4 percent of the budg-
et.
The proposed 2008-09 tax
rate fell close to the rollback rate
- plus 4 percent for growth
allowed by the- state of
1.8542 mills, or $185.42 for
every $100,000 of taxable
assessed property value.
The council had previously
set a preliminary tax rate of


2.0752, which would have gen-
erated $7.23 million in ad val-
orem taxes, or about 14 percent
more than the current year.
Wednesday, Fields brought
forward a slightly trimmed tax
rate at 2.0575 to balance a
$13.26 million operating budget,
which is about 10 percent larger
than the current year.
By state law, four out of the
five council members would
have to vote in favor to approve
that rate, while it would take
only a simple majority of three
members to approve the rollback
rate plus 4 percent.
Rollback is the rate needed to
generate the same amount of tax
revenue as in the current year.
To reach that, Fields provided
the council a list of possible
budget cuts, which he said
would also mean cuts in servic-
es.
According to Fields, cutting
one of the identified existing
staff positions would save
$60,580 in salary and benefits,
while cutting the other would
save $39,082. He said he would
rather cut the positions than not
give the rest of staff cost-of-liv-
ing and merit raises.
"The elimination of team
members is the very last thing
you do. I don't think we've gone
through this [budget] carefully
enough," said Vice Mayor Don


Achenberg, who was the only
council member not in favor of
at least one layoff.
The council also directed
Fields to eliminate an existing
but currently vacant planner
position as well as two proposed
code enforcement officers dedi-
cated to monitoring vacation
rentals.
A proposed new full-time
positing in the IT/Communica-
tions Department was down-
sized to a part-time position, and
the council reduced its travel
budget and ordered the village's
electricity use to fall 10 percent.
Hardest hit was the Parks and
Recreation Department, as the
council trimmed several services
and programs at Founders Park,
including cutting back operation
hours for the community pool
and skate park.
The board further directed
parks and recreation staff to stop
offering stipends to help fund
community swimming and ten-
nis programs at the park, which
would save $25,000 in expenses.
"I can tell you as sure as I am
sitting here that if you eliminate
the stipend, that [swimming]
-program is going to go away,"


Parks and Recreation Director
John Sutter said. "I'll have to
find a new program with a new
coach and start all over "again.
Same thing with tennis, too."
The. Village Council also
agreed to remove $10,000 for
special events at the park, which
next year would include staffing


for the Fourth of July fireworks
display expected to be paid for
by a group of residents and busi-
ness owners.
Public hearings for the pro-
posed budget are scheduled for
Monday and Sept. 22 at 5 p.m. at
the Bernard Russell Fire Station.

Lawyer advises
against giving
an extension
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

After two years of sitting fal-
low, the county's biggest white
elephant is on next week's County
Commission meeting agenda.
Monroe County bought the
former Hickory House restaurant
on Stock Island for $3.12 million
in 2006 with plans to turn it into a
* small park. However, widespread
public sentiment against the pur-
chase had the county put it on the
market, and it now sits dormant
behind a chain-link fence.'
Now the King's Pointe
Marina group, which has a $3
million offer on the property, is
asking for another year before
deciding whether to go through
with the purchase.
The development group,
which owns a high-end gated
community next door to the
Hickory House along the water-
front, is reticent to buy the parcel
because it wants the county to
abandon a portion of Peninsular
Road that lies between King's
Pointe and the Hickory House.
County law prohibits the com-
mission from giving away own-
ership of roads that end at the
waterline; this one does.
In an Aug. 12 letter to County
Administrator Roman Gastesi,
consultant Donald Craig notes
the abandoned road would be
important to property owners for
additional parking. In addition,
Craig, who owns The Craig Co.
and often represents developers,


said it's just not a good time to
buy.
"The present real estate
investment and financing mar-
kets are at best stringent and at
-worst not conducive at this time
to major investments in commer-
cial properties," he wrote.
Craig wrote that the company
is willing to pursue the purchase
if the county is willing to extend
the existing non-binding pur-
chase agreement until Aug. 31,
2009.
Kings Pointe has not put
down any earnest money on the
$3 million offer, and county staff
strongly recommends against
extending the purchase offer for
another year.
Natinleene Cassel from the
County Attorney's Office says in
a memo that denying the request
would free the county up "to do
whatever it wishes with the prop-
erty."
When then-County Admin-
istrator Tom Willi convinced the
commission to make the pur-
chase, he said one of the benefits
was that it would continue oper-
ating as a bar and restaurant,
which would offset the cost of
buying it. Within a month of the
sale, however, the restaurant was
shut down.
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
was the major proponent of buy-
ing the parcel so that Stock
Island residents would have a
small park "where they could get
their toes in the water."
The commission meets
Wednesday at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West
starting at 9 a.m.

Spehar makes final stand for firehouse


Stock Island
station would
be replaced
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


With just two commission
meetings left to go before she
leaves office, Monroe County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
wants to make one last push for
a new fire station on Stock
Island.
"I'm tired of hearing we don't
need to do this on Stock Island,"
she said. "This island has the
highest density of any island.
I'm not asking for a fancy drive-
through, just the old back-'em-'
up bays where they can put the
fire trucks. And they need places
for the men to sleep."
The commission meets
Wednesday starting at 9 a.m. at
the Harvey Government Center
in Key West.
In August, Commissioner
George Neugent proposed delay-
ing work on a new fire station so
the $2.1 million earmarked for it
could be used to help finance
sewers. His idea was tabled.
But it drove Spehar to bring
the issue back for Wednesday's
meeting.,
For years, county officials
have admitted that the small
Stock Island station on 2nd


Street is insufficient for the com-
munity's needs. Since 2004, dif-
ference county administrators
have talked about the search for
an affordable piece of land to
build an adequate station.
Several ideas have been
bandied about, but staff has
always been close to the vest on
what properties were under con-
sideration in order to avoid driv-
ing up the asking price.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi says he's "evaluating"
several possibilities, including a
lease-option proposal by a Stock
Island company called Fifth
Avenue Harbor Shops LLC.
It would have the county


lease land on 5th Avenue for a
base rent starting at $14),000 a
month and rising to $12,500 a
month for five years, then giving
the county the option to purchase
it for $2 million.
But Gastesi says there are
other possibilities out there.
Spehar says she wants to be
sure that any new station is cen-
trally located because it would
need to serve both sides of the
island, across U.S. 1 as well as
Key Haven.
"We have a wonderful fire
department," she said. "They
need and are entitled to the same
kind of fire station we put every-
where else."

Commission agenda:

change machine while the other


pointed a gun in the employee's
face, demanding money.
She handed over the money
and both suspects left. They fled
south down Key Deer Boulevard
toward U.S. 1. One of them was
reportedly riding a bicycle and
the other was on foot.
Both suspects were described
as young white men between
ages 14 and 16 and between 5-
feet-2 and 5-feet-4 tall. One had
short, dark hair; the other had
medium-length blond hair with a
short ponytail.

It would be the first fee increase

Two ordinances that would
put No Name Key a step closer
to inclusion in the county's

rently is exempt from the waste-


water program and from getting

.they won't be individually
responsible for upgrading their
sewer treatment to meet state
mandates.

By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West City
Commission has given the green
light to a new employee parking
program for people working in
the Old Town historic district.
It replaces a former program
that designated parking for busi-
nesses as whole a system that
apparently was abused by at least
one electric-car rental company,
Sunshine Rentals.
"I can confirm that the city
recovered at least three decals on
Sunshine vehicles that had been
altered" to extend their expiration
dates,-city Attorney Shawn Smith
said. "They had not renewed
parking passes for several
months."
Sunshine managers couldn't
be reached for comment.
Companies such as Sunshine
often use the parking decals to put
their vehicles in prominent spots
in the city as advertisements, not
necessarily because they need the
parking spots.
The decals are for metered
spaces so those using the spaces
don't have to worry about
depositing money all day.
"We did indeed discover that
there was an electric car company
with doctored-up stickers," said
Commissioner Barry Gibson,
who sponsored the resolution
establishing the new program.
Under the new program, park-
ing permits will be available to
downtown employees for $400
per four-month period.
Employees or employers wanting
to purchase the decals must pro-
vide Key West's Parking












N-


Collections Division with a valid
driver's license, a notarized letter
from the employer confirming
employment, a photograph of the
vehicle and a vehicle registration.
Approval by the City
Commission came Aug. 19, in
the middle of a permitting cycle
under the old system, so the new
decals should hit the streets
toward the end of September,
said Toni Gage, Key West's
supervisor of parking collections.
"I've received a lot of calls,"
Gage said.
Jim Evans, managing partner
at Paradise Rentals on Whitehead
Street, said the new program is a
step toward solving the parking
dilemma in Old Town as well as
a measure to control electric-car
rental companies from engaging
in unlawful competition.
"The system was originally
set up to give businesses parking
downtown," Evans said. But
electric-car companies such as
Sunshine bought the permits in
bulk to park cars as advertise-
ments and to block on-site rental
businesses from operating."
The. new parking program
specifically excludes commercial
vehicles.
"It's taken all the billboards
off the street and given people the
ability to park. It's a beautiful
thing to drive around down-
town," Evans said.
"I have nothing against elec-
tric-car companies," Gibson said.
But "I don't want any commer-
cial company to buy up parking
places. Parking places are desig-
nated for employees."

SeaSide, the massive cluster of apartments and condos on South Roosevelt Boulevard in Key
West, was developed by Bob Butler of the Argonaut Development Group. Former employees
say Butler and his son didn't pay them for work they did trying to sell Key West Residences, the
fractional ownership condos that face the ocean at SeaSide.



Developer stiffs workers


Employees not
paid when $2 mill
condos don't sell
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

The men and women hired to
sell $2 million condos at the
SeaSide development this spring
all tell the same story: Nothing
sold, week after week, month
after month, and no one got paid
on time, if at all.
Promises were made, excuses
were given. And in the end, they
were stiffed.
"We were lucky to get paid.
And we were never paid on time.
There was always a story," says
Ron Binder, who moved down
from Orlando to work for Bob
Butler and his son'Bob Butler Jr.,
selling the three-story pastel con-
dos that face the ocean at
SeaSide, east of the airport in
Key West.
Binder worked for Bob Butler
and his son from the beginning of
March until the middle of May. He
says he is owed only $750, but that
his life was turned upside down
because of the experience. Binder


sold his car and left his fiancE in
Orlando to take what seemed like
a good opportunity to start a new
chapter in his life working in real
estate in Key West.
"I browbeat myself every time
I think about it," he says. "Just
*how could I let myself get in a
position like this?"
Binder is back in Orlando,
working on putting his life back
together. He says he's taken a
menial job to pay the bills but
hopes to come back to Key West
to work in real estate.
"It's not been pretty," says
Jason Corrales, who was one of
the last sales people left at Key
West Residences, which is part of
the SeaSide complex. "Every-
body was just leaving because
they weren't getting paid.... I was
just told 'Hold on. Just don't cash
your check. We're going to fire
this person,'" he told the
Keynoter by phone last week.
People were fired one by one
this summer, and some quit after
not being paid, according to peo-
ple who worked for the Butlers.
Corrales is one of the lucky
ones. After leaving Key West
Residences, he was hired by the

Corrales and Binder were part
of a group of people hired out of
Orlando to sell the two-bedroom
condos called Key West
Residences as fractional-owner-
ship properties. For about
$300,000, you could purchase a
one-seventh share of a three-
story, two-bedroom furnished

condominium, or purchase one of
them outright for about $2 mil-
lion.
"It's just so hard, they're so
overpriced," Corrales said when
asked why he thought nothing
sold. Binder said potential buyers
told him it wasn't necessarily the
price, but that for the money,
they'd rather be near Old Town,
not out near the airport.


Bob Butler
developed the
area of the Salt
Ponds in Key
SWest, where
.12 percent of
the residents of
the island now
live. Key West
BOB BUTLER JR. Residences,
the name given
to the development that includes
96 three-story luxury condomini-
ums facing the ocean, is the last


part of the SeaSide complex,
which includes the Ocean Walk
apartments, the Salt Pond condo-
miniums, Las Salinas condomini-
ums and Sunrise Suites.
In a phone call with the
Keynoter, Bob Butler defended
his reputation as a long-time
developer in Key West and said
he didn't know much about
employees who hadn't been paid.
He says the people hired to sell
the two-bedroom town homes
didn't work for him, but for


Outreach Marketing, a separate
company headed by his son.
"We all were hopeful that it
would work. But the truth of the
matter is it didn't work," he said
of the marketing and sales opera-
tion. He says his son, Bob Butler
Jr., is no longer is charge of sell-
ing the condos.
"I shut him down and took
him out of that program about
three weeks ago," he said this
week.
Tuesday, one of those hired to
sell the condos at Key West
Residences went to small-claims
court in Orlando as a plaintiff
suing Bob Butler for $5,000 for
compensation he says he never
received. Neither of the Butlers
showed in court and they sent no
representative.
Bob Billingsley, who filed the
claim, says the judge told him he
won by default. But he doesn't
think it's over.
"I'll bet you a 10-cent piece right
now that they don't pay," he said.
Billingsley says it's "not true
at all" that the sales staff worked
for Outreach Marketing. He says
he worked for Bob Butler and
Bob Jr., taking direction from
both, and that the only paycheck
he ever received was issued by
Key West SeaSide LLC, owned
by Bob Butler.
The sales staff hired to sell the
condos, according to sources,
was told that they would be paid
a draw of $3,000 a month.
Commission they made from
sales of the condos would count
against that amount. But when no
condos sold, employees were fre-
quently not paid.
Corrales says he's owed
about $1,500, but that he's not
pursuing it.
"It doesn't bother to call them.
They're not going to pick up," he
says.
"There's one thing I learned in
the whole situation is you just can-
not trust anybody," Binder says.
"They hurt a lot of people in a
lot of ways," Billingsley said of
the Butlers.
At the end of a phone conver-
sation with the Keynoter this
week, Bob Butler said that if one
person had to wait a week to be
paid, it was too long.
"You can tell them to call me,"
he said of employees who have
not been paid for work they did
for him or for his son.
Bob Butler, whose company is
called the Argonaut Development
Group, can be- reached in Key
West at (305) 766-5064.

Keynoter Staff


It seems everything gets its
own day, and in Florida on Sept.
20, it's our lighthouses those
beacons on the sea and shore that
help keep mariners safe.
The Keys have their share,
from the land-based Key West.
Lighthouse to the Carysfort Reef
light off Key Largo. They are
celebrated through such things as
lighthouse-themed mailboxes to
garden sculptures.
Simply, lighthouses are as
much a part of our history as the
sea itself; and the men who
manned them before they were
automated were strong as steel.
To celebrate Florida Light-
house Day, the Florida Keys
Reef Lights Foundation is boat-
ing out to Sombrero Light off
Marathon Sept. 20. For $45,
those who want to see the light
firsthand can get a detailed look
into its construction, as well as its
history from experts with the
foundation.
The goal is to preserve the
Sombrero, Fowey Rocks,
Carysfort, Alligator, American
Shoal and Sand Key lighthouses
off the Keys. Each of the light-
houses remains active and is
owned by the U.S. Coast Guard.


The dark red, octagonal Carysfort Reef Light is located off Key
Largo. Standing 112 feet, it was built in 1852 and is the oldest
iron screw-pile lighthouse still functioning in the U.S. Carysfort
cannot be seen from land, but boats can be chartered out of
.Key Largo or John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.

up to provide prime viewing

The building designated
the Family Living Facility -
will include a kitchen and pro-

ed use is to give the ICS Eagle

volleyball. Locker rooms will
be included in the complex.

Canes host Carroll Tuesday


CANES / From 24

Andy Thiery said after the four
set win, 25-19, 25-15, 13-25, 25-
19.
"Carrollton had played and
practiced earlier and this was
like a Monday after a holiday for
us," he said. "Hopefully the Ikes
and the Fays are behind us."
Chelsea Moeller led the
Canes at the net with eight
blocks against the Cyclones, and


had an excellent serving night
(13 points in the opening set).
Chelsea Russell pulled out 14
digs on defense, and Lauren
Sanchez sealed the fourth set
with nine points serving.
Against Ransom, the Lady
Canes struggled in every match.
But Thiery said the loss 25-
.20, 29-27, 25-12 "was not as
lopsided as the scores appear."
Julia Hatfield capped an early
4-1 run with a kill shot, but the
athletic senior injured her ankle


on the play. The severe sprain
likely will sideline her for two
weeks.
"Her leader-ship and competi-
tive play on the court was
missed throughout the rest of the
match," Thiery said.Coral
Shores plays a home match
against District 16-3A rival
Archbishop Carroll on Tuesday,
with -start times of 4 p.m. and
5:30 p.m. Carroll's Bulldogs are
expected to join district coil-
tenders this fall.

Coral Shores


swims today


Ike delays
other sports
for Canes
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Coral Shores' swim team
lost one weekend meet to
Hurricane Ike but swims today
in a newly added meet.
The Hurricanes host the
boys and girls teams from St.
Andrews of Boca Raton in a
meet beginning around 11:30
a.m. at Founders Park.
"St. Andrews is very strong
so it will be an excellent test
for us," Hurricane coach Mark
Hill said. "Our girls should be
competitive, but our boys will
be challenged because St.
Andrews probably will come
in with a bigger roster."
Ike cancelled a Canes home
swim meet Sept. 7 meet
against Belen-Lourdes, Doral
Academy and Key West High
School. Plans for rescheduling


are pending.
The Canes 'host South
Florida swimming powers
Ransom Everglades and
Gulliver Prep in back-to-back
meets Friday and Sept. 20,
both in the Upper Keys.
Meanwhile, Coral Shores'
cross-country team opens its
season Monday against
Marathon High School in a
meet at Sombrero Country
Club. A planned trip to the
opening Key West Time Trials
on Tuesday was cancelled by
Ike.
And the Lady Hurricane
volleyball team was forced to
cancel just one match by the
storm, a Wednesday trip to
regional power Gulliver Prep.
The Lady Canes are slated to
play in a two-day tournament
at Gulliver on Friday and
Sept. 20.
Coral Shores and Key West
will play a junior-varsity foot-
ball game in Tavernier at 6
p.m. Thursday.
