Keys reach out


to Haiti victims


All goods needed
to help wrecked
nation recover
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Keys residents who escaped
the devastation from Fay,
Gustav, Hanna and Ike are rally-
ing tp help hurricane victims in
Haiti.
Chief Equipment Operator
Jerry Greer, attached to the
Construction Battalion Maint-
enance Unit 202 Detachment at
Naval Air Station Key West, is
leading a relief effort there with
seven other NAS volunteers.
The city of Marathon is col-
lecting non-perishable goods at
the Florida Keys Marathon


Airport fire station.
And the owner of Key West
Chemical is collecting canned
goods in a repeat of a relief
effort she organized after
Hurricane Katrina devastated
New Orleans.
"You got a bunch of towns
pretty much wiped out by mud-
slides," Greer told the Keynoter
Friday from aboard the U.S.S.
Kearsarge as it took on fuel and
supplies at Guantanamo Bay,
Cuba. "Some homes are totally
wiped out. People are stranded."
Greer also participated in
relief efforts in Mississippi fol-
lowing Hurricane Katrina in
2005. "It's pretty much about
the same," he said. "People are

Federal Atlantic
waters off limits
starting Jan. 1
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

It now seems certain a four-
month closure for grouper fishing
in federal Atlantic Ocean waters
will begin Jan. 1.
"The worst of the worst has
happened," Key West charter


fisherman Andy Griffiths said.
"We're out of business."
The federal South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council
voted 8-5 Thursday night to
.adopt new rules that impose the
January-through-April closed
season on most types of grouper.
"Our boats have been ren-
dered worthless in the market-
place at a time the government is
giving the banks billions,"

The Tavernier Towne Cinema
is looking to sell more than just
popcorn and Jujubes at its con-
cession stand. When the Monroe
County Planning Commission
convenes Wednesday in
Marathon, it will consider an
application by the theater's own-
ers to sell wine and beer at the
movie house.
"It seems a lot of customers
bring-it in, anyway,"' said Ayman
Nekhaila, who co-owns the cine-
ma with his brother Sam. "Most
of our customers are on vacation,


anyway, and this is something I
think they will enjoy."
It's not a new concept. The
Marathon Community Cinema
and the Tropic Cinema in Key
West serve beer and wine.
Nekhaila said the plan for
Tavemier Towne is to add a tap at
the concession stand. Customers
for any of the five screens can
choose their treat and head into
the theater. Combined, the cine-
ma has seats for around 540 peo-
ple.
Nekhaila says if the wine and
beer permit is issued, the theater
would be tough on checking age.
He says he's particularly sensi-
tive that movie-going is often a
family experience and he doesn't-
want the new offering to. detract


from that.
"We will be adamant about
proofing age of the customer and
who serves it," he said. ".There
will be strict control."
Max Puyanic, who runs the
Tavernier Towne shopping cen-
ter, supports the idea.
"Anything that makes the cus-
tomers more comfortable and
draws people to the center is a
positive thing," he said.
If the Planning Commission
approves the liquor permit, the
request would move on to the
County Commission for consid-
eration in October. Nekhaila
hopes to have beer and wine
available by Thanksgiving.

homeless.
"Some homes are totally cov-
ered in mud. People are digging
out," said Greer. "A lot of bridges
are wiped out. People are strand-
ed."
Gilda Fernandez, owner of
Key West Chemical, helped
organized a shipment of 600
palettes of supplies to New
Orleans working with Coast
Guard Sector Key West.
"I need more food; I need
cans," Fernandez said.
Fernandez has collected
assorted linens and clothes but is
accepting "anything those kids
can use without struggling. Give
me whatever you have. But if
people would just bring three or
four cans, it would make a huge
difference."
Fernandez said that without
the Coast Guard's cooperation,
her relief drive would not come
to fruition. "Those guys are great.
They care. They're really on the
ball," she said.
Key West Chemical, 909
Simonton St., has accepted dona-"
tions from local utility compa-
nies, a large food donation from
Winn-Dixie and is collaborating
with other local groups to maxi-
mize efforts.
Among the largest donations
offered up so far: Beds from the
DoubleTree Grand Resort in Key
West, which has donated 80 mat-
tress with box-spring sets to the
relieff effort.
. In conjunction with Key West


Chemical, the Key West High
School French Club is accepting
donations.
Christelle Orr, the club spon-
sor, said, "The French Club want-
ed to help so we've been collect-
ing anything and everything. We
have a lot of Haitian students
whose families were hurt, so we
really wanted to help out."
Donations can be dropped off
at Key West Chemical.
Greer said from what he's
seen in Haiti, "They're really
grateful for what we're doing...."
Greer works going back and
forth from the Kearsarge on
heavy-duty helicopters delivering
palettes of food, water and sup-
plies, which are distributed to
Haitians by relief workers on the
ground.
So far- the Kearsarge has
delivered more than 870 metric
tons of relief supplies, including
24,800 gallons of water.
"The food is a big part of it,"
Greer said. Although reestablish-
ing transport in Haiti is a big
help, the most immediate need of
the stranded population is food.
In Marathon, the non-perish-
able goods will be accepted daily
at the fire station from 7:30 a.m.
until 7:30 p.m.
"Many men, women and chil-
dren in Haiti are now without

necessities; help is needed

'The perfect storm'


GROUPER / From 1

Griffiths said. "They don't even
have any idea how many boats
they'll be putting out of busi-
ness."
A majority of the council
members rejected pleas from
Florida Keys fishermen and
Florida's council members to
exempt Monroe County from
the rule that covers Atlantic
waters beyond the state's three-
mile territorial waters. "
The closure covers an area
from Key West to North
Carolina.
"This is downright ugly,"
Islamorada charter captain Bill
Kelly said. "All because there's
about a 1-in-100 chance that a
Keys fisherman might hook a
gag grouper rather than red or
black, and cause post-release
mortality."
Passed as an emergency
interim rule to protect the over-
fished gag grouper population
- a species seldom found in
Keys waters the rule also
bans harvesting locally popular
species like red and black
grouper during the four-month
closure
Recreational anglers on pri-
vate boats will still be able to
fish state waters within the
three-mile limit.
However, the rule will apply
to federally licensed charter-
boats even in state water.
Only a veto by U.S. Secretary
of Commerce Secretary Carlos
Gutierrez would prevent the clo-
sure from starting Jan. 1. Those
familiar with the rule-making
process describe that as unlikely.
"This is going to be so hard
on a lot of people," said Tony
larocci, a Marathon. commercial
fisherman who serves on the
South Atlantic council.
larocci and Mark Robson, a
voting member representing the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, tried
unsuccessfully to rally support
for the Keys exemption. They
were on the losing side of the
vote.
"I'm not in shock it happened
,, , \ '


but I am dumbfounded and a lit-
tle depressed," larocci said.
"This shows the importance of
going to more regional manage-
ment."
The council majority refused
to exempt Monroe County
because "they said it shows
favoritism toward a small por-
tion of their jurisdiction," Kelly
said. "The closure does conve-
niently end in time for the South
Carolina and North Carolina
fishing season."
While the closure will affect
commercial fishermen and
recreational anglers, charterboat
industry workers have been the
most vocal.
Winter months bring visitors
to the Keys, Griffiths said, and
those willing to pay for a charter
trip often want to catch a
grouper-for dinner.
"It's like the perfect storm,"
Griffiths said. "When gas prices
are out of sight and we're in a
severe economic downturn, the
government could have thrown
us a life ring. Instead, they threw
us an anchor."
The Key West charter busi-
ness has been bleak for several
months, down 80 to 90 percent,
Griffiths said.
"When we finally get the
tourists back in February and
have a chance to start digging
ourselves out of the hole, they
shut us down," he said.
Kelly and Griffiths were
among dozens of people who
opposed the rule during public
comments at the South Carolina
meeting Thursday..
Keys fishermen generally
endorsed a proposal to impose a
one-year closed season on gag
grouper locally, coupled with a
lower recreational bag limit for
grouper, in return for the ability
to keep catching other grouper
species.
Council members agreed to
consider that alternative in an
upcoming amendment to the
South Atlantic snapper-grouper
rules. Even if it is eventually
adopted, larocci said, it would
not prevent the pending 2009
closure.

Keys Opinion


Feds hit Keys

fishermen again

No grouper for you, a federal council declared Thursday.
At least, no fresh-caught grouper from federal Atlantic Ocean
waters from January until May.
How such a decision could be made a decision that could
very well put some Keys commercial and charter fishermen out
of business this winter is beyond us.
To protect a grouper species rarely seen this far south, the
South Atlantic Fishery Management Council voted to close all
grouper harvests virtually all species of grouper for the
four months of the gag grouper's spawning season in federal
\Atlantic waters.
Keys charter captains and mates say the closure on a favorite
ood fish threatens a death blow to an industry already on the
r es because of gas prices and battered wallets. Commercial
gr uper fishermen are also angry.
d recreational fishing groups protest the ban as being'
base on bad science because so few gag grouper are caught in
the Ke s in fact, of all grouper caught here, gag accounts for
less than 2 percent, say those who know the fishermen.
Possible roadblocks to the ban are few, so for the 2009 win-
Iter, season Jan. 1 through April our primary tourist sea-
son an Atlantic grouper closure appears inevitable.
No one wants to overfish a species to extinction. But this full
closure is no solution for the gag-grouper problem up the coast
that is not a problem here, especially when there are so many
federal regulations limiting Keys fishermen already in place.
The Keys simply don't menace recovery of the gag grouper.
They just aren't here in significant numbers.
So in a misguided rule intended to prevent the accidental take
of a gag grouper mistaken for a red grouper or black grouper
which are plentiful and popular here all grouper fishing
will be slammed shut during the busiest months in the Keys.
Alternatives were suggested to preserve the popular pastime
of grouper fishing during the peak season for visitation in the
Keys. They were rejected, at least for the foreseeable future.
Florida's representatives on the South Atlantic council,
including Marathon commercial fisherman Tony larocci and
Key West charter-fleet owner Andy Griffiths, vigorously bat-
tled to exempt South Florida from the ban but lost a close vote.
Now the only way it seems it can be overturned is by-a direc-
tive from U.S. Secretary of Commerce Secretary Carlos
Gutierrez himself. It's a long shot a very long shot but
worth putting pen to paper to try.

number is (202) 482-2000.

Keys' student rankings don't show the whole picture


EDITOR:
As an educator in the Monroe County School
District for eight years (1998 to 2005) and now
working as an educational technical advisor to
school districts in Pennsylvania, recent letters to
the editor and editorials regarding the standing of
Monroe County's educational system compared to
other counties in Florida caught my interest.
Superintendent Randy Acevedo claims that
Monroe County is No. 1 in the state through using
some unique system of averaging school grades.
The state claims that Monroe County is No. 11
using the Florida Comprehensive Achievement
Test as the basis: Whether Monroe County is No.
1 or No. 11 is of no importance to the parents and
community members who want to know an hon-
est answer to this question: How well are all of
our students learning?
The Adequate Yearly Progress outlines the per-
centage of students broken down into subgroups
by race, economic status, English-language learn-
ers and students with learning disabilities. When
the data is examined in this manner, it is very dif-
ficult to hide or average the students who require
more assistance to learn with those students who
learn easily.
The trend (2003-08) in the Monroe County
School District shows either no progress for the
subgroups over time, or a decrease in proficiency.
Here are examples:


Black students have not shown proficiency
in reading since 2003-2004 and have not shown
proficiency in mathematics at all.
2008 is the first year since 2003 that
Hispanic students have not demonstrated profi-
ciency in reading.
Economically disadvantaged students
demonstrated proficiency in mathematics and
reading from 2003 to 2006, but not since.
Neither the students with disabilities nor the
English-language learners have demonstrated pro-
ficiency in mathematics or reading from 2003 to
2008.
The full report can be examined on the Florida
Department of Education's Web site,
www.fldoe.org/arm/.
So what does this mean? It means that there
are minimal student support systems in place for
our diverse learners. It means that our teachers are
left to struggle to provide for the learning needs of
students without teacher support systems being in
place. It means that there is a lack of leadership
in the district to address what is important the
learning of all students. It means that time is wast-
ed and money is being spent with very little learn-
ing gain for those students who need it most.
Is this what Mr. Acevedo means by No. 1 in
the state?

that is why there were no troopers on the Stretch:

Motorist killed


Several crashes
mar the start
of Poker Run
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The annual Key West Poker
Run lures thousands of bikers
each year to the Southernmost
City.
But the popular event is usual-
ly coupled with a spike in traffic
accidents over the weekend as
bikers flood the Overseas
Highway. Friday, the opening day
of the 36th edition of the Poker
Run, was no different, as several
traffic accidents occurred up and
down the Keys.
Few details were available but
the following came from initial
reports from the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office and the Florida
Highway Patrol.
+ A single vehicle accident.at
mile marker 72 left one person
dead and another was airlifted to
Miami's Ryder Trauma Center.
According to .preliminary
reports, the passenger car went off
the road, hitting a pole. Two peo-
ple were ejected from the car.
It's unclear if this crash was
specifically related to the Poker
run.
It's also unclear when the crash
happened. The Sheriff's Office
reported it in the early afternoon,

but then later said dispatchers
received a call of a possible acci-
dent around 10:15 a.m. from
someone traveling northbound.
Although law enforcement
officers and rescue units respond-
ed and searched the sides of the
road, they didn't see any accident,
Deputy Becky Herrin said.
+ A motorcycle accident
occurred at mile marker 102.5 at
2:45 p.m.
Two motorcycles were involved
in the collision. One person was
declared a "trauma alert" and dis-
patchers called for a rescue heli-
copter from Miami to transport that
person. It was unclear if there were
other injuries involved.
+ A crash was reported on the
Seven Mile Bridge about 5:45 p.m.
The was no road block.
Another vehicle crash was
reported at 2:20 p.m. on Card


Sound Road in North Key largo.
No injuries were indicated in the
initial dispatch.
Additionally, an accident
Thursday involving a 2005 Harley
Davidson led to a Naples man
being. airlifted to the Ryder
Trauma Center.
David Phillips, 62, was travel-
ing south on U.S. 1 near mile
marker 9 just before 4 p.m. when
a Mack truck turned left off
Florida Rock and Sand Road into
his path. Phillips reportedly fell
off his motorcycle, which slid
more than 90 feet, and avoided
colliding with the truck.

reprieve from jail

Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District candidate Andy
Williams got a reprieve from jail
Thursday.
At a hearing before Circuit
Court Judge Mark Jones to
determine if he violated proba-
tion for cocaine possession,
Williams requested and was
granted another hearing set for
1:30 p.m. Oct. 1.
He didn't testify Thursda but
did say outside the courtroom he
wants to present evidence show-
ing why he was legitimately late
for .a drug -test. Such testing is
among the terms of his proba-
tion.


Williams remains free on his
own recognizance but that could
change if he's charged with
another probation violation;
Jones warned him to obey the
provisions of his probation.
Williams, 44, was arrested on
Aug. 29 three days after he
won the Republican Mosquito
Control District primary over
Pat Unferth. He's. accused of
missing a drug test two weeks
earlier.
If he successfully completes
probation, adjudication of guilt
on the possession charge, for
which he was arrested in March,
will be withheld.

A homeless Marathon man
was severely injured Wednesday
night when he apparently ran

Judge: McCoy harassment


case moves forward


County tried
to get it tossed
out of court
Keynoter Staff

A federal judge on Wednesday
rejected a request by Monroe
County to toss out a lawsuit
against the county alleging sexu-
al harassment by Commissioner
Sonny McCoy.
The suit, filed by former
McCoy aide Celeste Bruno,
charges the county with failing to
provide a safe work environment
and allowing McCoy to sexually
harass her. McCoy himself is not
a defendant.
The ruling from U.S. District
Court Judge K. Michael Moore
means a jury trial is likely to
begin on Sept. 29 at the federal
courthouse in Key West. Moore
will preside.
In his ruling, Moore wrote,
"The court concluded that a rea-
sonable jury could find that


subject to a
; environment."
And he
pointed out
that the coun-
ty's attorneys
have not
McCOY denied McCoy
behaved the
way Bruno claims, "nor has it
pointed to any evidence refuting
Bruno's account."
Bruno alleges McCoy contin-
ually. told her stories about his
sexual prowess and made
advances at her, asking her "on
several occasions if she were
attracted to him," the -complaint
says.
Moore acknowledged that
Bruno wasn't physically threat-
ened, but wrote that "a reasonable
jury could find that a woman in
Bruno's position would have felt
humiliated."
Quoting another case, Moore


added, "While McCoy's conduct
was, or course, inappropriate,
what truly separates it from 'the
ordinary tribulations of the work-
place such as sporadic use of abu-
sive language, gender-related
jokes and occasional teasing' is
the frequency with which it
occurred."
Bruno also says she was a vic-
tim of retaliation because when
she complained about McCoy,
she was transferred and became
the aide for Commissioner Dixie
Spehar. Bruno no longer works
for the county.
The county sought dismissal
of the case, arguing that Bruno's
own arguments don't prove there
was a hostile environment work-
ing for McCoy "because an
objectively reasonable person
would not believe that McCoy's
statements created a hostile work
environment and the alleged
harassment was not -sufficiently
severe to alter the terms and con-
ditions of employment to create a
hostile work environment."

Cape Air gets the OK


December set
as the target
for Marathon
Keynoter Staff

Once they understood they
weren't 100 percent subsidizing
Cape Air to fly into Florida Keys
Marathon Airport, the Monroe
County Commission voted unan-
imously to allow the new flights
to begin.
The commission agreed to pay
$125,000 in what it called match-
ing incentives with another
$125,000 raised by Middle Keys
businesses to lure the airline to
make the run between Marathon
and Fort Myers three times daily.
"And that revenue guarantee
only applies when there are less
than six passengers on an air-
craft," Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton said.
The Cessna 402s that Cape Air
plans to use hold nine passengers.
Andrew Bonney, Cape Air's
flight development specialist,
said without the cash incentive,
his company would likely not
take on the Middle Keys service,
which would run from December
to April.


The money from businesses
was raised through a group called
the Florida Keys Airport
Initiative Inc.
"We polled our membership,"
said Daniel Samess, executive
director of the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce, "and a
90 percent positive response
came back. We'd like to see this
happen."
Horton noted that the county's
half of the money had been ear-
marked for the service several
years ago, in'the airport's operat-
ing account.
The Cessna 402s already fly
regularly out of Key West, and
the staff from Cape Air says it's
confident of the need in
Marathon. That's why, they say,
they're looking for a financial
guarantee only if they are unable
to fill the planes.
"We do small communities,"
Bonney said. "That's who we
service."
Bonney was unwilling to give
estimated fares between
Marathon and Fort Myers.
The Marathon airport has been
plagued with an inability to
entice and retain commercial car-
riers.


American Eagle pulled out in
April 2000, and the county has
tried a variety of.schemes to get
service back, ranging from waiv-
ing passenger fees to attempting
to lock carriers in Key West into
agreements that include
Marathon. /
Last year, Delta was the latest
to promise service, to Fort
Lauderdale. The carrier pulled
out within six months.

Hoteliers grill candidates


All say they
oppose hike
in the bed tax
Keynoter Staff

Bed taxes, affordable housing,
how to attract more tourists and
how to cut county spending dom-
inated the questions Friday as
candidates for .Monroe County
Commission faced an audience
filled with lodging industry
experts.
The run-up in county taxes
and proposals to add another
penny to the bed tax brought the
strongest reactions at the Key
West session, hosted by the
Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West.
"The county is the only taxing
body to raise the millage rate,"
District 3 commission hopeful
Heather Carruthers said, adding
that the current commission has
done little to reduce the burden
on taxpayers.
Her Republican opponent,
Carlos Rojas, said he would cut
the salaries of the county's high-
est-paid employees, "those mak-
ing $120,000 a year to $70,000 a
year. That would save $1 million."
Bill Estes, a Democrat run-
ning against District 1
Republican Kim Wigington, said


he would look to cut the number
of county jobs and the number of
locations where the county main-
tains operations.
"The budget is broke,"
Wigington said, adding that work
needs to begin in January to cor-
rect the budget mistakes con-
tained in the current spending
plan.


All six said
they oppose
adding
another penny
to the existing
bed tax, which
helps fund
tourism
marketing.

All six said they. oppose
adding another penny to the
existing bed tax to help fund
affordable housing.
"Everyone's had to reduce
prices to survive," Estes said, pre-
dicting that the tourism industry
and all Keys business will be


"tightening its belt."
Asked about affordable hous-
ing, non-affiliated candidate
Sloan Bashinsky, who is running
against Carruthers and Rojas,
said the county has done nothing
and private developers can't or
won't because of high land costs
in the Keys.
Bashinsky said the only
immediate option is to lobby the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency to relax rules on down-
stairs enclosures and then encour-
age private property owners with
stilt houses to enclose their
downstairs to rent out as afford-
able housing.
Carruthers said government
can't do it alone, but pointed to
public-private partnerships like
Marathon's Seagrape rental com-
plex, now under construction, as
a good model to replicate else-
where in the Keys.
.District 5 Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy, whose challenger
Sal Gutierrez was the only candi-
date not to show for Friday's
forum at the DoubleTree Grand
Key, said access to construction
loans and mortgages has stymied
four affordable housing projects
in the Keys.
She also said affordable hous-
ing is not her first priority, rank-
ing below fixing the budget and
meeting the county's wastewater
commitments.

Facing

30 years,

man flees

Flenor fails
to up show for
his drug trial
Keynoter Staff
A Florida City man facing up
to 30 years in prison for selling
cocaine within 1,000 feet of St.
Mary Star of the Sea Church in
Key West was a no-show for his
trial Wednesday.
The, trial
went on with-
out defendant
Leefloy d
Flenor present
and a two-
man, four-
p woman jury
deliberated no
more than 20
FLENOR minutes
before finding him guilty of the
first-degree felony.
Flenor, 27, was out of jail on
$30,000 bail pending his trial. He
participated in jury selection
Monday but by Wednesday no
onel knew where he was, accord-
ing to the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office.
Flenor has an extensive crim-
inal history.
In Miami-Dade County, he's
been convicted of battery on a
law enforcement officer, resist-
ing arrest with violence and pos-
session of cocaine stemming
from a May 23, 2003, incident;
and sale of marijuana and
obstruction a criminal investiga-
tion in October the same year.
He served state prison time
from Dec. 29, 2003, through Oct.
5, 2004, followed by a year of
supervised released.
In Monroe County, he's been
arrested for, besides the cocaine
charge, a felony charge of driv-
ing with a suspended license as a
habitual offender, failure to
appear in court to answer a
felony arrest, failure to appear for
a misdemeanor offense and vio-
lation of probation.
Wednesday, the jury convict-
ed Flenor of selling three crack
rocks for i$50 to an undercover
police officer through an inter-
mediary on April 5, 2007.

Board to get fund control


City terminates
contract with
the Land Trust
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday unani-
mously decided to replace the
Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust with a seven-mem-
ber board to allocate communi-
ty redevelopment tax funds.
Old City Hall was filled with
Bahama Village residents, some
in support of the Land Trust and
its executive director, Norma
Jean Sawyer; and others aligned
with Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district includes
Bahama Village.
Lopez has said the Land
Trust has not been held
accountable in administering
the tax incremental funds,
known as TIF money.


Since, 2000, the Land Trust
has received $3.7 million in city
TIF money. At the beginning of
the current fiscal year, there was
about $1.2 million in the TIF
fund. Already this year, the
Land Trust has received
$455,724 from the fund to
repay development fees dating
as far back as. 2000.
"It's been a hard job being,
the Key West [Community.
Redevelopment Agency] agent.
We're getting tired of this
fight," Sawyer said. "We're not,
here to say we want to do every-
thing for Bahama Village. If
you want to get rid of me, so be
it."
However, she added, "Make
things. easier for these people
that can'4 do it for themselves.
On' your own, you cannot do
What you want.... We don't own
the. banks, we don't have mil-
lions of dollars. That's why we
need to have access to it."


Commissioner Clayton
Lopez said that despite the
change to who allocates the
money, the Land Trust is still
eligible to receive funding.
"I'm not sure where to actu-
ally.begin," he said. "This does
not cease TIF funds from going
to BCCLT. We're pretty much
at deadline having to approve
the city budget. We will get
together. We will meet."
The TIF coffer is filled by a
special property tax that is
reserved for neighborhood rede-
velopment; funds can be used
for planning and redevelopment
expenses, to pay off debt, com-
munity policing and affordable
housing.
The seven-person board will
consist of people appointed by
each commissioner and one by
the mayor; to be eligible for
appointment, the appointees
must live, work or attend
church in Bahama Village. The
change takes effect in 60 days.

Shared chief
goes to council
for approval
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
is scheduled to meet in regular
session Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center. Agenda items include:
Approval of an interlocal
agreement between the village
of Islamorada and the city to
share village Fire Chief William
Wagner.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
said the city will benefit from
Wagner's fire and emergency
management expertise, while
saving roughly $50,000 through
the agreement. The city will
reimburse Islamorada 50 per-
cent of Wagner's salary and
benefits, which .amounts to
$88,365.
The one-year agreement will
take effect Oct. 1 if passed, with
a 30-day termination clause.
A resolution prohibiting
parking along Harbor Drive and
Aviation Boulevard in the areas
'of the Dodge Lake boat ramp.


Residents have complained
about traffic and safety concerns
caused by an increasing amount
of people launching boats from
the small ramp, located in the
residential neighborhood behind
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
The resolution prohibits.
parking on the 1000 and 2000
blocks of Harbor Drive and the
7700, 7800, 7900 and 8000
blocks of Aviation Boulevard.
A resolution approving the
purchase and installation of
$100,000 worth of fire hydrants
by the Florida. Keys Aqueduct
Authority on Grassy Key.
A request by Holiday Inn
& Marina owner Robert
Spottswood for a development
agreement and conditional. use
permit to redevelop the property
near mile marker 54 into a
Holiday Inn Express.
The council recently passed
legislation allowing smaller and
mid-sized hotels to redevelop in
their current footprints without
requiring a 20 percent afford-
able housing contribution.
Planning Director George
Garrett told the council that sac-
rificing so many rooms to
affordable housing was pricing


many hoteliers out of redevelop-
ment.
A resolution awarding
Lanzo Construction a $19.13
million contract to construct the
Area 5 wastewater and
stormwater collection systems.
Bidding opened May 27 and
the city received 10 bids, half of
which were under the engi-
neered estimate of $22.1 mil-
lion. Lanzo was the second low-
est and most qualified bidder,
according to city wastewater
consultant Weiler Engineering.
A resolution approving the
city taking a loan of $10 million
out with Branch Banking &
Trust Co. to finance a portion of
the city's.sewer and stormwater
projects.
The city has been approved
for loans through the. state
revolving loan program, but
those funds are. unavailable at
this time. The BB&T loan is a
three-year loan with a 3.31 per-
cent interest rate.
An ordinance prohibiting
parking in designated fire lanes.
The city plans to regulate park- -
ing and create fire lanes to
ensure Marathon Fire Rescue is
able to access all available water
sources in the event of a fire.

Analyst: bank
has to deal
with problems
By ANN HENSON FELTGEN
Keynoter Contributor


Orion Bank is working to
comply with provisions of a 15-
page state and federal order to
tighten up its lending and write-
off policies.
The first deadline came Sept.
4 when the bank was to have
charged off or collected on all
loans that are more than 90 days
past due. A much longer list of
tasks is due at the end of
September and another list is due
in October.
"Management is working
extremely hard to comply with
the order," said Linda Charity,
director of the Florida Office of
Financial Regulationr, Division of
Financial Institutions.
But Charity could not share
what documents the state and
Federal Reserve Bank had
received, saying they were not
part of the public record.
Nearly a year ago, during a
regularly scheduled examination
of the bank, federal officers
clamped down on Orion's lend-
ing and write-off policies.

Analyst: 'This is a big problem for Orion'


ORION/ From 14

In August, Orion President
Jerry Williams, the majority stock
holder .and board chairman,
signed an agreement -with the
Federal Reserve Bank and state
financial regulators directing the
bank to improve its .oversight,
adopt more stringent loan policies
and procedures, strengthen its
appraisal and appraisal review
program, stop extending or
renewing credit for borrowers,
submit a written budget plan and,
among other things, stop paying
cash dividends unless pre-
approved by the state and the
Federal Reserve.
. Charity said that the order had
nothing to do with previous
examinations, that the order is
based on the single event. She
could also not share if there were
past administrative actions taken
against the bank. "The order
speaks for itself,"' she said.
While Charity said that very
few of these orders are issued, the
number is on the increase because
of the economic downturn.
Orion's problems are reflected
in its numbers, said Ken Thomas,
a Miami-based financial analyst.
"Orion has 5.25 percent of its
loans -noncurrent," making it
among the worst perforinin.g
banks nationwide. "That's pretty
bad; this is a big problem for
Orion."


Williams defends his bank,
saying it is the economy that has
caused problems. "When you
have a builder selling 20 houses
per year and now they are selling
two, we're trying to work that
through," he said.
Williams stressed that the
bank's cash flow is strong, with
an operating income of $16.5 mil-
lion last year.- In June, Orion's
profit dropped to $8.3 million.
Williams said the list of docu-
ments required was not as daunt-
ing as it seemed. And he pointed
out there was no review of man-
agement, "which is the No. 1 bad
signal," he said.
But the document did direct
the bank's board to take more.
control over management.
The order states that the board
will develop a written plan that
strengthens its oversight of man-
agement and operations of the
bank, including "maintain effec-
tive control over, and supervision
of, the bank's senior management
and major operations and activi-
ties..."
That plan, due in November,
also must include: a description of
information and reports regularly





SmilesII.L
- keys


reviewed by the board; steps to
strengthen the bank's audit func-
tion and the effectiveness of the
directors' audit committee; a
management succession plan
should something happen to sen-


ior managers; an assurance that
bank executive officers meet fed-
eral standards; a separation of
duties and reporting lines between
credit administration and loan
production; and an evaluation of


staffing needs and qualifications,
particularly of appraisers, evalua-
tors, analysis and loan workout.
Orion has five branches in the
Keys and 15 other branches.

Laughter drives this Jeep

'It's not funky. +
We promote
messy vitality .
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.corn


"If I need to make some
money, I go make someone
laugh," Jeep Caillouet says as he
sips a beer at the Schooner Wharf
Bar in Key West.
Jeep performs at Mallory
Square. He and his dog Cleo
Patra delight onlookers as Cleo
crosses a suspended tight rope
and collects money from the
crowd before depositing the bills
into a bucket.
Jeep, who's been doing the dog
act for 12 years but who's been a
Key West entertainer since 1988,
describes Cleo as "half golden
retriever, half financial retriever."
"I trained her [in] everything
she knows in 20 days. I didn't
have a goal to set out and be a
dog trainer," he said.
But after getting his first
puppy following the Telluride
Blue Grass Festival in the 1980s,
Jeep said to himself, "I've got to
teach it something."
Before Cleo, who is three and
a.half years old, Jeep worked with
Mo Money and Somo Money.
"My dog Mo died unexpected-
ly. One day just died." But Cleo,
"She's a pretty good old dog."


Jeep Caillouet, in his trademark bowler hat, hangs out at the
Schooner Wharf when he's not at Mallory Square performing


with his dog Cleo.
For Jeep, Cleo and so many
others, if they.can't entertain the
masses, they can't be happy.
"I was just driving around,
looking," he said. "When I came
here I lived in a Cadillac with a
house built on it. The first time I
pulled into Key West, I said,
'Wow! I can work every day of
the week if I need to.' Now, if I
don't work every day of the
week, I can't live here." .
Jeep got one of his first jobs
performing in a Western-style
gunfight show in Mississippi
City, Miss., when he was 17. "I


was an outlaw," he said smiling.
"I played the Cactus Kid. We did
eight shows a day. I got shot off
the roof robbing a bank."
"I've been doing it 35 years in
the street," Jeep said of perform-
ing. "I've done it all, man. You
name it, I've done it. I've worked
everywhere in America doing
what I do."
He's performed as a clown,
balloon sculptor, magician, jug-
gler, mime and musician.
He laughed, saying, "It's like
Barbra Streisand. You don't want
see her perform 'A Star is Born'


As she does
nightly, Cleo
Patra carefully
makes her way
across two -
1-inch ropes
suspended in
the air as the
sun dips into
the water.

every time."
"I ain't the best, though," he
said. "But I've been able to sup-
port myself for 35 years. Talent
and working are different. I work
every day."
Although Jeep taught himself
the nuances of performance art,
Ihe nodded to his traveling min-
strel predecessors.
"We're the oldest form of
spreading the news. We spread
the news before the newspapers
spread the news. What we do is
our freedom. It's not fading."
In the past, Jeep has traveled a
circuit between Key West, Aspen
and New Orleans, adapting his act
to appeal to a diverse clientele. He
gave up traveling and has been
steadily in Key West since 2003.
"There's not many street per-
formers here. Most of them. are
street musicians." But "we as char-
acters create the ambience. It's not
funky. We promote messy vitality."
"That's our job," he said. "To
draw people to this town. We
draw them to the city. That's all
part of being a character. You go
out there, work a little bit and
spend a little bit."
It's been slim pickings lately.
"If it gets too much more, I'm
gonna have to be a character
somewhere else."
Jeep smiled as he contemplat-
ed what he just said. "Come on
down. There's plenty of women.
and plenty of whiskey."

r he Southernmost Silver
Man doesn't usually have
a lot to say. He keeps his
lips hermetically sealed while
performing as a mime on Duval
Street.and at Mallory Square.
But once the silver paint comes
off, the words fly. "Their kids
love me. They love me. And
they come every year looking.
for me," he says of tourists in
Key West.
Silver Man was out working
Duval for three hours Tuesday
afternoon, and in the evening he
was on the steps of Key West's
Old City Hall on Greene Street
with other artists, waiting to ,
unleash on the Key West City
Commission over a proposed
ordinance that would ban street
performers from Duval Street
and most of the side streets in
the area around Duval.
"It Cuts my income in half,"


Silver Man (Robert
Mathison) and
Captain Spike told
the Key West City
Commission on
Tuesday that they're
not panhandlers;
they're the reason
tourists come to Key
West. Toko Irie (Melvin
Newton) came to Key
West's Old City Hall
on Tuesday to defend
his First Amendment
rights to perform
bn the street.

says Silverman. "From
December to May, which is sea-
son, they're cutting my income
completely in half."
Silver Man says that never in
his years of performing in Key
West has he had any complaints.
He's usually out in front of
Wyland Gallery during the day,
apd he says employees at the
gallery love him.
The Key West City
Commission was considering a
bill on Tuesday night that would
have increased the annual fee
that street performers pay, from
$100 a year to $250 a year, and
would also have banned perform-
ers from Duval and surrounding
streets relegating them, for the
most part, to Mallory Square's
sunset celebration.
"Everybody I've spoken to is
saying there's no point of show-
ing up at the meeting because
we're going to get shafted any-
way," says one of the performers.
Terry Mealor, who does body
art on Duval with his wife, was
sitting on the top step as the twi-
light closed in on Tuesday.
"This is about code enforce-
ment not doing their job," he
said. "I stuck to their regulations.
It's not my problem if other peo-
ple did not."
"It's not even street perform-
ers" he tells the Keynoter. "I
think they want me off the street
as an artist."
Was the Key West City
Commission trying, on Tuesday
night, to wipe the city clean of
its most colorful elements the
palm weaver, the mime, the
pirate, the musician who plays
on the street comer? Were they
trying, as some of the performers
accused, to ban art? To kill the
music? To kill what makes Key
West Key West?
Commissioner Bill Verge,
who sponsored the proposed city
ordinance, said from the dais on
Tuesday night that the plan to
get performers off Duval came
about as a result of a "collection
of meetings" with city staff, code
enforcement and merchants. "As
the city expands we basically
need to keep the sidewalks
open," he said.
"Everybody wants to be on
Duval Street. But everybody
can't be on Duval Street."
Verge said he's seen the num-
bers from businesses that show a
"substantial difference" in

Former photog finds life's work in cement


Eyes tired of
palms find
faces in rock
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

First met Susan Johnson on a
weekend in May or early
June. I'd just moved to the
Keys, and, in the spirit of get-
ting to know the arts communi-
ty, I'd driven down from my
peaceful home on Ramrod Key
to see the sunset celebration at
Mallory Square. I'd been to
Mallory in 1999 or 2000. But I
didn't remember much about it,
and wanted to see it again, to get
some sense of it.
I looked around at the art that
was being sold there. And it
appeared to be a bit, well,
dashed off as though special-
ly made for hawking to tourists.
But then I noticed a woman
standing behind a table in the
line of artists/merchants. She
was selling very small black and
white photographs of palm trees.
Black and whites of palm trees
have always drawn my eye, and
I liked the particular way she
had set them in very small
handmade glass presses, some
with mats cut at interesting
angles.
The artist's name, I found
out, was Susan Johnson, and


Susan Johnson grew up in
Cairo, III., and moved to Key
West from North Miami six
years ago.
she'd lived different places -
Nashville, St. Louis, Miami -
before settling in Key West six
years ago. She worked at being
an artist every day, she told me,
and did little else. Every night
she rode her bike to Mallory,
hauling her paintings behind her.
She told me the truth about
the black and white photographs
she was selling. She'd lost her
eye for photography, she said.
She couldn't see Key West any-
more with fresh eyes, and didn't'
have money to travel, so she'd


just stopped taking pictures.
I walked away later thinking
about what she'd said, and
thinking how wonderful it is to
come into some place new,


Johnson
started doing
these very
small clay
head
sculptures in
boxes, and
has moved
on to work
with cement.

MARGARET MENGE


when you notice how the clouds
curl back in the sky, and how
the late afternoon sun looks on
the side of buildings that are
new to you. The head drops


lower the longer you live some-
where. It's true. We do stop see-
ing things.
. I saw Susan a month or so
later at the Island Arts Co-op
gallery on Duval Street, where
she'd begun showing her new
work tiny clay sculptures of
faces inside wooden boxes.
She's just moving in now to
another gallery down the street
- Gallery Key West and is
bringing with her other pieces
- byproducts, you could call
them, of a successful search for
"authentic self."

Faces in rock
Johnson's studio now is the
back patio of a friend's house on
Catherine Street. Her homes
the round cottage at the far end
of the patio where the friend,
Eric Anfinson, stores his paint-
ings. There's no darkroom here
- the work is all done in the
open air, and in the still-hot
September sun, with a bag of
cement the raw material.
Johnson is working on chiseling
faces from cement, using sculpt-
ing tools. There's one blockish
head with a rebar stuck, through
it and a rather sour expression
on face. The more you look at it,
the more you want to look it.
Because it really looks like
somebody you know or looks
like all of us feel sometimes
when we feel like we have a lit-
tle too much heavy stuff in our
heads. "The neat thing about the
cement is, for one thing, it's
unforgiving. When you chip
some away, you can't bring it
back," says Johnson, showing
me a number of cement faces on
small blocks that she says she'd
planned to make into an abacus
and call "head count."
There are other pieces in
Johnson's growing collection of
cement sculpture that are less
representational blocks on
sticks with birds etched on them
- a series of three called "birds
on a wire." And there's what
looks to be a wall of a dungeon
in cement, with clay faces post-
ed on it. "I'll tell you, there's
some dark stuff coming out in
this cement work," she says.
Though the sun is bright here on
this dark patio. And she's laugh-
ing as she says it.
Susan Johnson's new work,
and some old, can be seen at
Gallery Key West at 824 Duval
St. beginning on or about
Oct. 1.

Maria Callas, known as 'La
Divina' is maybe the most
famous opera singer of all
time. She was born in the
United States, but was taken
by.her Greek parents back to
Europe to train her voice.
Key West opera fans:
Europe or Met?
The Key West Film Society,
which operates the Tropic
Cinema in Key West, recently
sent out an e-mail to members
asking which they would pre-
fer: that the theater show a
series of high definition operas
from the great opera houses of
Europe (including La Scala)
using their own equipment, or
show the simulcast
Metropolitan Opera series. To
play the Met's operas the the-
atre would have to install spe-
cial satellite equipment at a cost
of about $5,000. And they
would have to cancel plans to
show all of the operas from


Europe. "Do you feel that the
Met productions are worth
booking, knowing that all other
operas will be precluded?"
members of the film society
were asked in the e-mail com-
munication. If yes, the Tropic is
asking how many of the film
society members might buy
tickets for the 11-opera series in.
advance, at a cost of $200 (or
$100 for five operas). Tickets
for individual simulcast per-
formances would be $22
apiece. The series would begin
this month.

'Hair-a-Cane' hair cut
marathon coming
Salon Santiago and the
American Red Cross are host-
ing a hair-cutting fundraiser,
called "Hair-A-Cane" on Oct. 5
in Key West's Bayview Park to
help raise money for local dis-
aster relief.
The event is set for 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. There will be a mini-
mal charge for cuts at this hair-
cutting marathon and attefidees
will be encouraged to make a
donation to the Key West
American Red Cross. The hair-
dressers from Salon Santiago,
including owners Antonio and
Dorry Santiago, will be donat-
ing their time and hair cutting
expertise. Staff from Stock
Island Fades and Spa will also
be giving haircuts, and Belinda
from SIFS will be doing dry
manicures. High school stu-
dents will serve food and bever-
ages. All Keys residents (and
those visiting the Keys) are
invited to come and get a great
cut for a good cause.

income when a street performer
is in front of the establishment.
He said the law allows the city
to restrict performers to certain
parts of the city, and named
Mallory Square as the best place
for them.
"We ARE Duval Street," said
the first person who rose to
speak. And the performers kept
that high ground for the rest of
the comment period. "We get to
work here if we want to. That's
the law that gives us an opportu-
nity to do that," said Jeep, citing
First Amendment protections.
One man came to the lectum
and told Mayor Morgan
McPherson and the Key West
City Commission that if they
proceed with banning perform-
ers from Duval, he'll not only
fight it, he'll fight the fact that
the city is charging an annual fee
to performers at all.
Emotions ran high as per-
formers countered the insinua-
tion that they are beggars. "One
thing I've never been called, Mr.
Verge, is a panhandler," said
Silver Man, and rattled off all

tourists a list that started with
"awesome."
A man who performs with his
singing dog made one of the
most poignant appeals: "Bruno

"It's the only thing that keeps
him alive. You take that away
and we're both done."
One of the hardest-hitting
comments came from Captain
Spike of the Bone Island
Bucaneers. "You gentlemen run
for election. Would you be
happy if the only place you


could hold your signs was at
Mallory Square?" he said.
Verge responded (with inter-
ruptions from a heckler in the.
audience) that it was the Key West
City Commission's job to decide
the "tenor" of Duval Street.
In the end, Verge was alone'
in wanting a tenor for Duval that
doesn't include street perform-
ers, or buskers, and the commis-
sion voted to table the proposed
ordinance, and to work at
addressing some of the com-
plaints of merchants in other
ways.

Thursday, Island Christian
coach Robert Lucas said.
"We're playing with a lot
of youth right now," he said.
"That inexperience, especially
on defense, was a factor
[against Greater Miami]."
Several players missed
Thursday's game, resulting in
a "revamped" defense, Lucas
said.
"The focus is on learning
and'improving to be ready for
the end of the season," Lucas
said. "Because of all the
younger guys, .we're taking a
slower approach than we usu-
ally do."
The end of the season is not

Greater Miami (3-0-2)

The second half was much

Football may not be the only
sport in which a rivalry is now
brewing between Marathon and
Key West high schools.
The two played a volleyball
match filled with momentum
swings Tuesday in front of very
vocal crowd at Marathon's Kay
Gradick Gymnasium. The
Conchs jumped out to a 2-0 lead
but the Dolphins stormed back
to win a wild one in five games,
25-27, 18-25, 25-15, 25-14, 15-

ed they weren't losing,""
Marathon coach Kelly Eigner
said. "It was physically and
emotionally draining."
Eigner said the Dolphins
have consistently beaten the
Conchs since she's been a part of
the program, but praised Conchs
coach Jessy Hulme and her
assistants for pointing the pro-
gram in the right direction.
"They're a whole different
team from the preseason,"


Eigner said, referring to the

the Conchs in a preseason tour-

"I have to tip my hat, they
showed up to play against us,"
she said.

falling behind early, but in each
game the deficit proved too large
to overcome. It wasn't until the

Lady Canes at


Gulliver today


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Coral Shores' .Lady
Hurricanes spent a lot of time at
Gulliver Prep this week.
The prep volleyball squad (3-
2) finishes its two-day stint at
the Gulliver Invitational
Tournament today in a field of
16 teams. .
On Thursday, the Canes
headed for Gulliver to play a
match rescheduled because -of
Hurricane Ike (results not avail-
able at press time).
"The tournament gives us a
chance to play some big pro-
grams like Barron Collier and
Southwest," Coral Shores coach
Andy Thiery said. "We're, going
to have to put our heart into
every point if we want to win."
Pairings in the tournament
were plotted to allow South
Florida teams to play clubs they
don't regularly meet, Thiery
said.
Wednesday, the Canes suf-
fered too many slumps in a 16-


25, 25-19, 25-18, 25-23 loss at
home to district rival
Archbishop Carroll (5-1).
"We came out and spanked
them the first game, then got
lazy," Thiery said. "We were
standing around and not pass-
ing. Carroll settled into their
game and played well."
Lauren Keleher served nine
serving points in the closely
contested final game.
"Chelsea Russell played a
phenomenal match," Thiery
said. "Shelby Gentes was all
over the place; I think she
touched the ball on every play."
Lauren Sanchez and
Shannon Penix also had consis-
tent serving games but it wasn't
enough to catch Carroll's"
Bulldogs.
The Lady Canes have a key
rematch with District 16-3A
contender Ransom at home
Wednesday. Junior
varsity starts at 4 p.m.,
varsity around 5:30 p.m.


Fins win wild one


VOLLEYBALL / From 28

Marathon jumped out to an
early lead in game three and
eventually built a 15-4 lead. Key
West closed the gap to 17-10, but
the Dolphins eventually pulled
away for the win.
Tied 4-4 in the fourth game,
the Dolphins went on a run and
built an 11-5 lead. But Key West
rebounded, closing the gap to 11-
9 on a block by 6-foot-4 junior
Dani Helmke, who gave the
Dolphins fits at the net.
The Dolphins struck back
immediately with a kill by soph-
omore Kelley Struyf that
bounced off Helmke and out of
bounds. At that point, the
Marathon crowd was at a fever
pitch backing the girls.
"Once they saw we were in it
and fighting the crowd got into
it," Eigner said. "We didn't need
much motivation ... playing a
rival team."
Up 17-13, junior Shelby Kuck
helped seal the fourth game for
the Dolphins by serving three
consecutive aces and putting
Marathon up 20-13.


But the Conchs bounced back
in the deciding game, building an
early 5-0 lead behind an ace by'
sophomore Jessica Bodmer and a
blocked kill by senior Victoria
Brisson.
Kills by senior Morgan
Longstreth and Struyf helped
bring the Dolphins back within
two and they eventually took a
12-8 lead after a seven-point
serving run by senior Sarah
Melia.
The. Conchs closed the gap to
14-13, but Marathon scored the
game's final point after a diving,
dig by senior Jeannette
Betancourt that was followed by
a blocked Key West kill attempt
by Struyf to win the game.
Wednesday, the Dolphins (3-
1) lost 17-25, 17-25, and 22-25 to
Greater Miami Academy. It was
the girls' first loss of the season.
Eigner said they were tired from
the match against the Conchs the
day before.
The Dolphins are scheduled to
play in a tournament this week-
end hosted by Gulliver Prep. The
Conchs (1-2) are scheduled to
host Ronald Reagan High School
today at 3:30 p.m.

Young Dolphins still

learning to swim


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A small but game Marathon
High School swim team took to
the pool in a meet against
LaSalle High School and Miami
Country Day Wednesday.
The team didn't win but
Coach Sarah Maschal said the
kids swam hard and several best-
ed personal records.
"They had a good meet,"
Maschal said. "The -meets help
them because in practice, they
know what to work on."
Senior Morgan Roberts won
the 200-yard freestyle race, in.
2:23, four seconds faster than
her best time this year. Junior
Acacia Grube won the 200-yard
individual medley in 2:38,
improving on her breaststroke
times.
Because the team is small,
Maschal said, kids oftentimes
swim events they're not used to


so the team can post a score and
not lose too many points.
Among those for the Dolphins
was seventh-grader Brenden
Stearns, who swam the 500-yard
freestyle for the first time
against competing against main-
ly seniors.
"He did pretty well. He fin-
ished competing against sen-
iors," Maschal said. "They were
twice his size."
-The girls finished in third
with 47 points, behind LaSalle's
67 and the Spartans' 92. The
Spartans won the boys meet as
well with a 96, followed by
LaSalle with 95 and Marathon,
27.
The Dolphins are scheduled
to make up a meet postponed
due to Hurricane Ike against.Key
West High School Wednesday,in.
Key West at 3 p.m. at the Florida
Keys Community College.

SPractice rare
as golf team
drops 2 matches
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

This year's busy storm sea-
son hasn't done the Marathon
High School golf team any
favors.
With its season more than
half over, coach Kevin Freeman
said the team has been able to
practice just once on the range at
their home Sombrero Country
Club.
"There's still water on the
range from the storms and the
net is all torn up. You can't drive
or hit irons," he said.
The Dolphins dropped
matches this week against
Palmer Trinity School Tuesday,
179-215, and Thursday against
Miami Country Day, 169-221.
But Freeman said the team
has been able to stay focused
and positive through, consistent-
ly posting better team scores in
each of their matches until
Thursday.
Senior No. 1 and No. 2 play-
ers Josh Gratton and Joe Pratt
continue to carry the Dolphins,
holding their own against the
best players on Miami-area
,teams that ,play golf on a ,year,-.,
round basis.


Pratt and Gratton shot a com-
bined 90 Tuesday in the home
match against Palmer, tying the
Falcons' top pairing. Pratt shot a
40, while Gratton shot 50 in
what Freeman said was an off
day for the senior.
"You can tell Josh is getting
frustrated because he knows he
should be playing better," he
said.
Senior Al Hoffman, who is
playing competitive golf for the
first time this season, shot his
low nine-hole round' of 62
against the Falcons.
Thursday, the Dolphins trav-
eled to the Spartans' difficult
Miami Shores course.
"It was a pretty hard course,
they had matchbook-sized
greens," Freeman said. "It was
an old Florida course, with big
oak trees and banyan trees that
get in your way."
Pratt and Gratton held their
own, shooting a combined 91
over nine holes, while the
Spartans' top pairing shot 80.
Gratton shot 45 on the day, best-
ing Pratt's 46 by one stroke.
The Dolphins are scheduled
to play two home matches this
week at Sombrero Country
Club: Tuesday at 3 p.m. against
Key West High School and
Wednesday at 2 p.m. against
.Doctors .-,Charter .School.'

Lady Eagles look for first win


-Volleyball
team falls
to Redland
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Now the rugged early-sea-
son education may begin to
pay off for Island Christian
School's volleyball Eagles.
"I'm happy with how we
played," ICS coach Sheryl
Yost said after falling to
Redland Christian, 25-19,
25-14, 26-6, Wednesday
night in a home match at the
Coral Shores gym in
Tavernier. -
The Lady Eagles dropped
40 0-2 in the regular season
after going 0-2 in the presea-
son Keys Tournament.


But Island Christian likely
has already played the tough-
est opponents it will face
before the District 16-A
Tournament in late October.
The 1A Eagles ran into 3A
Coral Shores and 4A Key
West High School in the
Keys Tournament. Then the
first two matches of the regu-
lar season turned out to be
versus Redland defending
district champion and a 2007
state semifinalist.
Redland's Lady Falcons
advanced to 6-0 Wednesday.
"We should have won the
first game," Yost said.
The Eagles opened well
and kept pace with Redland.
Jessica Subic's block at the
net tied the game at 18-18.
Ashley DeVuyst served
strings of three and four


points in the opening game.
But an experienced
Redland club with a tall and
strong front line took control
to finish it out and wasn't
seriously challenged in the
next two games.
While the Lady Eagles
showed the ability to rally,
they .could not match the
Falcon firepower at the net.
"They're good," Yost said.
"We did OK and got some
experience. Our girls learned
they need to communicate
and move to the ball."
Said Yost, "Melanie
Meroni had an excellent
match at setter, and Jennifer
got some hits in."
Island Christian is sched-
uled to visit Greater Miami
Academy on Monday and
Westwood Christian on
Tuesday.

e designed the Palace Gardens in
Homestead as a high-quality
Assisted Living Community. It
incorporates what is best about the Florida
Keys, and we have changed the myths people
have when they think about senior living.

The grounds are spacious and beautiful. The
care is great. The staff is great. The food is


great. The atmosphere is pure Florida Keys.
Home health visits, therapy, and doctor visits
take place on site. Residents have privacy, but
nursing assistants are always available just out-
side their door, to help with any need. Younger
Florida Keys residents can bring their parents to
be near them, close enough to visit but not
under the same roof.


Call Michael at (877) 221-0228 for more information and a tour.
