Mosquito board



cuts $1 million


Land purchase in
Key West delayed
indefinitely
By RYAN McCARTHY
rnccrt 's ke'n, i'er.com

The Florida Keys Mosquito
Control Board didn't go as far as
Commiss.ioner Bill Shaw wanted,
but on Mondav it did slash an
additional $1 million from next
ear's proposed budget.
At its final budget hearing for
this fiscal 3 ear. the board adopted
a millage rate of .3798, which is
expected to earn the district'just
o:er $10 nullion in ad valorem
t:i'.es That rate is 15.34 percent,


below the rollback rate of .4436,
or the tax rate needed to generate
the same tax revenue in the next
fiscal year as in the current one.
Monroe County residents will
pay 37.98 cents per $1,000 of
assessed property next year,
meaning the owner of a $300,000
house will pay $113.94.
Several speakers urged the
district to lower its millage and be
more transparent with its budget.
"The entire budget is difficult
to figure out. I would encourage
more explanation in the items so
the public can see where the
money is shuffled to," resident
Robin Lockwood said.
"We all know this is tough


economic times for businesses
and taxpayers and we're asking
you to reduce our tax rate further,
by up to $2 million," said
Virginia Panico, executive vice
president of the Key. West
Chamber of Commerce.
For the fiscal year starting
Oct. 1, district Director Edsel
Fussell initially requested a mill-
age rate of .4535, which like the
current fiscal year would have
raised $12 million in revenue.
The board initially trimmed that
village to .4175 before lowering
it again on Monday.
Shaw suggested, and the rest
of the board agreed, to cut in half
the $2 million budgeted for pur-

Saunders


re-elected


to House

Keynoter Staff

State Rep.
Ron Saunders
was automati-
cally re-elect-
ed to another
two-year term
Monday when
t -h e
Republican
SAUNDERS Party of
Florida failed
to come up with an opponent.
Ernie Hernandez, a construc-
tion company owner in Miami,
had qualified to run against
Saunderg, a Democrat, but with-
drew from, the race in a Sept. 12
letter to Florida Secretary of
State Kurt Browning.
That meant the GOP had until
5 p.m. Monday to find a replace-
ment to run in District 120. That
didn't happen. ,
"The word I got is they did
some polling ... and they just did-
n't want to waste money going
after me," Saunders said. m
Hemrnandez remained a mys-
tery during his short candidacy,
failing to return the media's calls
to find out his views on the
issues, and not showing up to
candidate forums. So why did he
run?
"Apparently he was friends
with some of the Dade County
Republicans," Saunders surmises.
Saunders is a fifth-generation
Key Wester who initially served
in the state House from 1986 to
1994. He had unsuccessfully
sought the office of Florida sec-
retary state after his first tenure
in the House, then re-emerged in
politics in 2004 when he ran
unsuccessfully for state senator.
He returned to the House in"
2006. He serves on the House
Committee 'on Environmental
Protection, Legislative Budget
Commission and the Policy &

Grouper case gets 2nd look Keys briefs


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Keys charter fishermen are
reviewing a 2005 lawsuit that
overturned a federal grouper clo-
sure in the Gulf of Mexico to see
if it can apply to a pending
Atlantic closure.
"They knew about this deci-
sion and it never came up," Key
West charter fisherman Andy
Griffiths said of South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council
officials. "That's uncon-,
scionable."
That 2005 case against the
Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council was lodged
by two recreational fishing
groups, the Coastal Conservation
Association and the Fishing
Rights Alliance.
"They wanted to shut down
the entire grouper fishery in the
Gulf of Mexico using data on the
recreational take that suspect and
unreliable," said Ted Forsgren,
executive director of CCA
Florida. "We were getting all of
the bad and none of the good."
Part of the Gulf rule proposed
to stop overfishing of the red
grouper population called for a
two-month closed season on all
grouper species.


A case summary posted by the
University of Mississippi says the
judge agreed with the plaintiffs
that the closure was overly broad'.
Fishing for red grouper could
be halted, the judge ruled but
no studies indicated other
grouper species were in trouble
sufficient to warrant a. total clo-
sure.
Last week, the South Atlantic
council approved an interim
emergency rule calling for a clo-
sure of several species of grouper
from Jan. 1 through April to pro-
tect gag grouper during spawning
season.
The rule would affect all
waters within its federal jurisdic-
tion, beginning three miles from
shore.
"They're putting us all out of
business," Griffiths said.
Gag grouper are not common-
ly caught in the Keys. However,
the closure extends to red grouper
and black grouper, which are
popular food fish for Keys
anglers.
Forsgren said a flurry of rules
on snapper and grouper from the
region's three major fishery man-
agement groups the South
Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico fed-
eral council, plus the state Fish


and Wildlife Conservation
Commission are leaving even
experts in a fog.
"I'm still trying to see what
happened at the South Atlantic
Council after the smoke cleared,"
Forsgren said. "I'm not exactly
sure how. it all came out. There
changes in amendments and
some things got delayed."
The state FWC board was
meeting in Jacksonville at the
same time the South Atlantic
-council was meeting in South
Carolina, he pointed out.
"We're good but we can only
be .in one place at a time,"
Forsgren said. "With all these dif-
ferent things happening, it's diffi-
cult to follow. For snapper and
grouper, they're talking about
pretty substantial action."
A CCA associate presented
the organization's concerns about
the grouper rules as part of public
testimony in South Carolina.
A grouper closure in Atlantic
waters during the height of the
Keys tourist season would devas-
tate a beleaguered charter indus-
try, Griffiths said.
As an emergency rule; the
South Atlantic'rule could take
effect Jan. 1 unless blocked by
the secretary of the U.S.
Department of Commerce.


Cyber Center on edge of the law


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

', Cyber Center general manager
ery. Steve Matheson says every busi-
jrs, ness needs a hook to sell its prod-
4- uct, but his is just barely legal, a
top prosecutor says.
The Cyber Center, which
recently opened stores in Marathon
ida and Big Pine, is an Internet cafe'
selling online time and prepaid
long-distance phone cards.
Here's the hook: When a cus-
tomer buys an hour's worth of
Internet access for $12, or a long
distance card, they automatically
pf- receive a certain amount of free
entries into a sweepstakes that
awards cash prizes from a $5,000
nal pool. Whatever the customer
wins is paid out on the spot,
Matheson said.
es "It works exactly the same as
a McDonald's or Burger King
sweepstakes. You buy a meal and
get a cup and peel something off,
S the side and 4wini a burger, of ha


prize or a trip," he said. "We do
the same thing."
After making a purchase, cus-
tomers swipe a magnetic card
into one of the Cyber Center's
terminals and gain access to a
number of computer games
resembling Las Vegas-style slot
machines. But winning or losing
the games doesn't determine your
winnings in fact, you don't
even have to play them.
That's what makes this form
of gambling legal in the eyes of
the law, at least for now, says
Catherine Vogel, chief assistant
attorney for the Monroe County
State Attorney's Office.
"We're not saying these are
legal, but they don't seem to be
outlawed, either. They're in the
gray area and because they are,
we're not going to go out and
arrest them," she said.
Vogel said sweepstakes differ
from slot machines, and even the
lottery, because the customer is
receiving a pi6dbttin return for


his or her money.
"You go into a Burger King
and buy a Diet Coke; you either
win $5,000 or you win a small
apple pie. How is that different
than scratch-offs for the Florida
lottery?" Vogel asked. "The dif-
ference is I have alDiet Coke."
Matheson says for him, it's
business as usual until anyone tells
them different at the Cyber Center.
"Joe has spent a lot of time
doing everything correctly and
talking to the right people and
getting all the proper licenses,"
he said of owner Joe Allen, who
operates a number of similar
establishments in North Carolina.
Cyber Center attorneys have
demonstrated their product to
Vogel and the business is a mem-
ber of the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce.
Allen' hosted a grand opening
last week in Marathon's Gulfside
Village and will host another on Big
Pine Key today at 5:30 p.m. That
store is in the Winni Dixie plaza.

Stranger tries luring boys into BMW


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office and the School District
warn parents that a driver or driv-
ers of a blue BMW could be try-.
ing to abduct local children.
The warning comes after two
boys separately told police last


week that a man in a blue BMW
tried to lure them into his car.
According to Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Deputy Becky
Herrin, an 11-year-old boy told
police he was skateboarding at
about 3 p.m. Friday on Seminole
Boulevard, in the Indian Mounds

chasing the land on which the
district's Key West building sits
from the city of Key West.
"We have a letter from the city
of Key West, who we've been
talking to about purchasing the
property. My overview is they
don't want to do it," Shaw said.
But Shaw's request to trim the
operating budget by 15 percent,
or $652,000, was not approved. It
would have reduced the village
to .3353, or 20.8 percent below
rollback.
"We don't want to lose people
or cut benefits, so I'm proposing
we do that," Shaw said. Fellow
commissioners Charles Langstaff,
Joan Lord-Papy and Chairman
Steve Smith shot down that plan.
"I'm not one bit in favor of
reducing operating expenses by 1
percent, let alone 15 percent,"


Langstaff said.
Langstaff also wanted to leave
intact the $2 million to buy the
,Key West land.
"If'we take any money out,
should something come up -
any property we won't have
the money to do it," he said,
adding the district's Key West
building is unsafe and in need of
repair.
"Very few people bring all the
money to a real estate deal. If we
feel'this is the best piece of prop-
erty and get the city off their rear
end, we can put a deal together,"
Shaw said.
Panico questioned several
budget items, including increas-
ing beginning reserves from $7
million to $8.1 million, budget-
ing more than necessary for
employee merit raises and col-
lecting taxpayer money for the
potential Key West land pur-
chase.

Ramrod man attempts
to run another over

A Ramrod Key man who got
into a fight at a Key West strip
club and reportedly resisted
police even though three officers
had their guns drawn on him -
has some major legal problems
ahead.
Larry Gardner, 61, was jailed
at 3:06 a.m. Sunday on the
felony charges of hit and run
involving injury, aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weapon and'
cocaine possession; and two
misdemeanor counts of resisting

investigated, Gardner reportedly

"without provocation" hit
Addison with the front of his
car; Benjamin nearly was pinned
between the Cadillac and a Jeep.
That's when the officers drew

The officers yelled at

subdivision, near mile marker 89.
The boy told police a blue
BMW pulled up to him and the
driver rolled down the passen-
ger's window and yelled at him to
get in the car, Herrin said.
The boy said he ran into a
nearby yard to get away. The
driver reportedly waited for about
10 minutes before driving away.
He described the driver as having
dirty blond hair and a light beard.
He said the BMW had dark tinted
windows and damage on the front
passenger side'.
According to Herrin, that
report followed one made by a
13-year-old boy on Sept. 16, who
said a blue BMW approached
him as he was walking home
from the bus stop at mile marker
88 at 3:20-p.m.


That boy said the driver pulled
up and asked if he wanted a ride.
The boy said no and walked
away, and the driver then drove
away, Herrin said.
The boy described the driver
as a white man in his 40s or 50s,
heavy set and balding with a salt-
and-pepper goatee. Herrin said
investigators haven't determined
if the drivers and cars from both
reports are the same.
"We never make that assump-
tion," Herrin said. "There were
some discrepancies in the
descriptions [of both the drivers
and the cars]. But that can happen
for any number of reasons."
School District Superinten-
dent Randy Acevedo said parents
were sent recorded messages to.
their phones alerting them of pos-


sible risks to children.
"I basically said there were
two incidents of an adult trying to
lure a child into his car, and we
just wanted to let the parents
know," said Acevedo, who added
additional resources for parents
were posted on the district's Web
site, www.monroe.k12.fl.us.
The Sheriff's Office says par-
ents'should remind their children
to never talk to strangers and, in
particular, never get into a
stranger's car.
If a stranger does ask the child
to come with him or her, a child
should run away and yell loudly
for help, Herrin said. They should
tell their parents about the incident
and the parents should report the
incident immediately to police.

Homelessness group
receives state grant

The Southernm6st Home-
less Assistance League has
received a $144,000 grant to
help with its mission of pro-
viding emergency shelter,
food, case management and
related services to the Keys'
homeless.
The money is part of $6.9
million distributed to home-
less-assistance groups
statewide by the. Florida
Department of Children and
Families.
Statewide, the department
estimates Florida has more
than 60,000 homeless people,


including approximately
20,000 children. In the Keys,
there are about 1,000 people
considered homeless.
The $6.9 million was
awarded through two separate
programs, the Challenge Grant
and the Homeless Housing
Assistance Grant. Both are
administered through the
Department of Children and
Families.
The department awards the
grants to agencies that demon-
strate their ability, to provide
quality services to the home-
less and that have a track
record of success in receiving
grant funding and private cash
for services.

No voter fraud found


Marathon man
says signature
on card is not his
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County State
Attorney's Office has found no
evidence of fraud in a
Marathon man's voter registra-
tion records, though he dis-
agrees. .
After he voted in the pri-
mary in August, Tom
Dodamead filed a complaint
with the Supervisor of
Elections Office, claiming the
signature on a change-of-affili-
ation form with his information
was not his. Dodamead says he
did fill out a form changing his
party from Independent to
Democrat just pot the one on
file with the Elections office.
"I'm saying I. didn't do it,
that's the way I feel about it,"
Dodamead said, adding he has
no plans to pursue the matter
further.
"It's pretty stressful for me;
I'd rather it just go. away. I


thought it was important
enough to make sure it wasn't
happening to anyone else," he
said.
Well, investigators say it
didn't happen to him.
They say no motive appears
evident to tamper with the affil-
iation form because the party
change was what Dodamead
desired and the information on
it is consistent with his other
records.
"Had the contents of the two
cards been different in any way,
that might have suggested that
some crime was being commit-
ted," State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said.
"Results of the investigation
indicate that although Mr.
Dodamead believes his signa-
ture on the card in question was
not his signature, it is," a State
Attorney's Office report says.
"Therefore, no evidence exists
indicating a criminal act
occurred."
The report cites a mark
Dodamead uses when signing
his name "indicating he is


Thomas Emile Dodamead III."
"That mark, on the card in
question, is similar to the mark
on his Florida driver's license
record. This record contains
four separate signatures of Mr.
Dodamead," the report reads.
Dodamead said the informa-
tion in the report was not what
he was told by the State
Attorney's Office.
"They just said they can't
resolve it; they can't figure out
who's telling the truth," he
said.
Dodamead also voiced con-
cern at not being able to obtain
a copy of his own records and
that a handwriting expert was
not used in the case.
"It wasn't necessary to ana-
lyze the handwriting. There's a
preponderance of evidence that.
says he was present with ID
when both cards were filled
out," Helmerich said of the
card in question and the new
one he filled out before voting
in August.
"I didn't want this to turn
into a big political issue. I just
wanted to make sure it's not
happening on a regular basis,"
Dodomead said.

Fire damages sailboat


No one hurt
in the blaze
on Buttonwood
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Fire seriously damaged a 34-
foot sailboat moored off the Key
Largo bayside around noon
Saturday.
No one. was injured in the
blaze, extinguished by a Key
Largo Volunteer Fire and Rescue
crew.
The first responders on the
scene grabbed extinguishers and
were ferried by a private vessel


to the burning sailboat, which
was about 250 feet offshore in
Buttonwood Sound near mile
marker 99.5.
"They knocked it down as
best they could," Chief Sergio
Garcia said.
The department's closest fire-
response boat was down for
repairs, so firefighters launched
their second boat to respond
with a pump.
"We're lucky to have the
boats we do," Garcia said.
"We've never received any
money from the county for
boats. They were purchased with
donations."
The owner of the burned sail-


. Coy ted Mater
OP 1: I 0s r-s


boat was listed as Martin
Strydok, a Broward County resi-
dent. He apparently was not on
board at the time of the fire.
Propane tanks and portable
gas tanks were taken from sail-
boat.
"Our guys did a good job,"
Garcia said.. "Usually when
these fiberglass boats start burn-
ing, it's difficult to stop them
from burning to the waterline."
Among those responding to
the call.were Lt, Frank Moc and
firefighters Mark Cuesta, Sergio
Garcia Jr. and Joe Castanada.
Staff at Snook's Bayside
restaurant provided use of their
dock and drinking water for the
fire responders.

Convicted fish dealer
donates 223 Keys acres
A Bal Harbor man will give
223 acres of Upper Keys land
to the state for preservation in
return for being spared federal
prison time for illegally
importing seafood.
Monday, James Hanson
pleaded guilty to illegally
importing queen conch and
spiny lobster from the
Bahamas. In December 2005,
the U.S. Coast Guard inter-
cepted his boat off Miami and
found more than 1,000 pounds
of undeclared spiny lobster
and appro .mnatl) 340 pounds
of queen aboard. He
planned t'o' through 'is

In return for his plea, he
was fined $75,000 and ordered
to perform 300 hours of com-
munity service and to serve
three years of probation.
He also agreed to donate
his undeveloped property on

Keys Opinion


Yes, Wall Street's fall

even affects the Keys

Ever wonder if national politics really have much impact in
the Florida Keys?
The question arose on multiple fronts Tuesday as the treas-
ury secretary and the chairman of the Federal Reserve both
testified on Capitol Hill.
A sense of "emergency" attached to a $700 billion bailout
for Wall Street has caused both Democrats and Republicans
to question if urgency trumps the high risk of creating bad
law. The stock market certainly didn't like the news Tuesday.
You might ask, why do we here in the Keys care about all
that? Well, for two good reasons.
One, tourism is the largest economic driver for Keys busi-
ness. Tourists who are worried about jobs, keeping their
homes and the price of gas simply don't travel as much.
So anything that accelerates that loss of purchasing power
and growing sense of unease translates into fewer tourists,
which means a shrinking Keys economy.
Two, our second-largest economic driver is real estate -
mostly buying and selling .(less building new compared to
other parts of Florida).
The cost of borrowing and making it harder for homebuy-
ers and second home owners to qualify for loans are direct
hits at the Keys' economic base. And as this space editorial-
ized two weeks ago, fixing the mortgage mess is not some-
thing we can solve here.
There are other signs of national politics at work closer to
home, of course.
The push-and-shove over drilling in the Gulf is still part of
the McCain and Obama campaign rhetoric. House and
Senate Democrats are pushing a compromise bill that keeps
some environmental safeguards, despite Republican opposi-
tion.
How does this debate impact us? Well, simply put, Florida
makes more money off clean beaches and a healthy marine
environment than we'd ever realize from oil leases to big
energy outfits based outside the Sunshine State.
If that sounds parochial, then so be it, but it also happens
to be true.
Finally, the other national political dance going on involves
voter registration drives.
In battleground states, which now include even Florida
(now that's a surprise), both Democrats and Republicans are
engaged in an unprecedented sign-up effort.
We predict a big turnout of voters sending a message.

Continue fighting to keep grouper fishery open


EDITOR:
South Florida fishermen and in particular
Monroe County anglers will take it on the chin
Jan. 1 through April 31, as the South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council moves to close
grouper fishing for a number of species in federal
waters under the guise of protecting gag grouper.
The action is akin to closing deer hunting in
Pennsylvania to protect caribou.
The commercial gag grouper catch in Monroe
County represents less than one half of 1 percent
of the entire South Atlantic harvest and only 7
percent of the recreational catch. However, black
and red grouper represent a sizeable portion of
the grouper catch for commercial, for-hire and
recreational anglers in these same areas and are
highly sought-after species during the winter and
early spring months.
What adds a great deal of perplexity to the
issue is black grouper are earmarked for a much
needed stock assessment in 2009 that will indicate
whether any action is necessary for their protec-
tion. And in August at its Key Largo meeting, the
Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council

Response is quick

EDITOR:
On behalf of Lower Matecumbe Key home-
owners on Iroquois Drive I would like to give a
special thanks to the Sheriff's Office, Islamorada
Fire Rescue and the Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative for the excellent response and help
that was provided to us as a result of the tornado
that struck at mile marker 74. Not only did they
respond quickly, they continued to monitor and "
help during the days that followed.
Also, a special thanks should be given to the
Florida Keys Mosquito Control District for tak-
ing care of business as soon as they were able to
send spray trucks and spray planes.
As quoted from one of the local news stations
regarding a sign posted on a fallen coconut tree,
"Paradise is not cheap." But they forgot to men-
tion that it's worth it; we are happy to be part of
this community.

voted to lower the size limit on red grouper for
commercial fishermen from 20 inches to 18 inches
and increase the bag limit for recreational anglers
from one to two fish per person per day because a
recent stock assessment indicates they are in much
better condition than previously thought.
Last, week, I attended the South Atlantic coun-
cil meeting in Charleston, S.C., representing the
Islamorada Charter Boat Association and qther
organizations. We offered significant concessions
in order to keep the season open. Council mem-
bers Tony larocci of Marathon and Mark Robson
of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and myself lobbied the council to
exercise its authority and exempt Monroe County
from the closure under a recent council provision
designating the area as a special management
zone. Our requests fell on deaf ears.
A number of dissenting council members felt '
any exemption for Monroe County would be per-
ceived as favoritism. The underlying theme here
is any future regional management schematics
will face tough competition, as some council
votes appeared to favor state borders.
The Islamorada Charter Boat Association will
continue to pursue avenues to correct this need-
less inequity and the severe impact it will have on
all anglers and the economy of the Florida Keys.
Fishermen interested in supporting our initiatives
are encouraged to contact Capt. Steve Leopold,
president of the Islamorada Charter Boat
Association, at 393-9955 or myself at 394-5333.

No regard for locals
EDITOR:
Shame on Dions Oil and the Tom Thumb gas
stations for the total disregard for the residents
of the Keys. They must have had a great laugh
at us when they raised the price of fuel just
before the mandatory resident evacuations for
Hurricane Ike.
No matter what explanation they come up
with, the locals know what they did. I will make
it a point to avoid their stores whenever possible.
Kudos to Fairway Market and the Citgo sta-
tion at mile marker 53, which did not gouge us.

Murder case moving slowly


Ocean Reef
worker killed
in carjacking
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


'A trial in the case of a
December carjacking case that
claimed the life of an Ocean Reef
restaurant worker appears to be
some months in the future.
A November hearing before
Circuit Court Judge Mark Leban
will be held in Miami-Dade
County but no trial date has been
set on charges stemming from the
death of Missi Holderman, a 27-
year-old mother of two daugh-
ters.
"It won't be happening any
time soon," said Robert Barrar, a
defense attorney for Sean
Johnson, one. of two juveniles
facing a charge of conspiracy to
commit carjacking.
Johnson and Cleveland Bell,
both 16, have been released on
bond.
A third defendant, Howard
Water, 18, remains in the Miami-
Dade jail under a five felony
charges in the case including
first-degree murder and carjack-
ing.
"First-degree murder cases
take a long time to get to the trial
stage," said Ed Griffiths, a


spokesman for the Miami-Dade
State Attorney's Office.
The November court date is a
regular status hearing to monitor
the progress of discovery motions
and other aspects of the case,
Griffiths said.
Holderman, 27, a Homestead
native and single mother of two,
was asleep in the back seat of a
fellow Ocean Reef co-worker's
car when the driver stopped for
gas at the Gateway Shell station
in Florida City.
There, a man identified as
Willie Cade carjacked the vehicle
at gunpoint. The driver was left at
the station' but Holderman was
still in the back seat.
Where Cade saw that a Florida
City policeman witnessed the
crime, he drove the 2007 Toyota
south on U.S. 1 toward the Keys
with police following behind.
According to police, Cade
reached speeds of more than 100
mph during the chase. At a con-
struction site near mile marker
114, the Toyota went out of con-
trol and crashed head-on into a
northbound truck. Both vehicles
burst into flames.
The truck driver lived but
Holderman and Cade died.
Water, Johnson and Bell all
originally were charged with
murder as accomplices. They
reportedly were in a car that
dropped Cade off at the station.

All charges against Bell and
Johnson, except for one count of
conspiracy, were later dropped
by the state attorney.
Homicide "was a ridiculous
charge for my. client under the
circumstances," Barrar said.
"Ultimately, the state attorney
looked at the evidence and decid-
ed this is what the charge would
be" against the juveniles.
"The state attorney did this on
their own," he said. "That's one
of the functions of that office.
They don't just rubber-stamp
whatever charges the police file."
An attorney for Water ,could
not be reached at press time.
Holderman had worked in
Ocean Reef for about a year.
A benefit was held in
Homestead this spring to raise
money for a trust fund for
Holderman's two daughters, ages
10 and 8. Their father is a
Homestead police officer.

Contractors win
after pleading
to the council
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Just one week ago, the
Islamorada Village Council
unanimously agreed to cut two
staff positions to save roughly
$110,000 in next year's budget.
Thanks to public outcry at the
final budget hearing on Monday,
a building inspector's position
was saved from the ax.
The council restored the posi-
tion in front of a room filled with
contractors, many of whom
pleaded to keep the inspector or
risk harm to the local economy.
"I think to do otherwise would
be very shortsighted," Mayor
Cathi Hill said just before the
vote. "Ultimately, helping the
contractors and encouraging
growth and redevelopment will
translate into lower [property
taxes] in future years."
The council didn't reverse its
decision to eliminate receptionist
Sophie Todd's job, though. She
has worked for the village since it
incorporated nearly 10 years ago.
Cutting her job will save
approximately $40,000, accord-
ing to budget reports.
The council set the final 2008-
09 tax rate at 1.8542 mills to bal-
ance an operating budget of
$12.6 million, about 2 percent
more than the current budget. At
that rate, residents will pay
$185.42 in village taxes per
$100,000 of assessed property
value. -
The rate is 10 percent higher
than this year's rate of $168.53
per $100,000 of property value.
However, the village will collect
only about 2 percent more in ad
valorem taxes next year because
of decreased property values.
Most homestead property owners
will pay less overall in property
taxes in the coming year.
Next year's rate is equal to the
rollback rate, which is the rate
needed to generate the same
amount of revenue as in the cur-
rent year, plus 2.4 percent allotted
by the state Legislature for
growth and to make up for the
effects of a recently passed tax


amendment.
To pay for the building inspec-
tor, the council didn't raise the
2008-09 tax rate it had approved
at the first budget hearing.
Instead, the council raised plans
to raise permit fees roughly 8 per-
cent.
Permit fees now are $30 per
100 square feet of new residential
construction, renovations and
additions, to $1,115 to build a
modular home. Similar fees exist
for electrical and mechanical
work permits, with a minimum
permit fee of $100.
Village Manager Ken Fields
said the council will set the spe-
cific permit rates soon.


Contractors
said eliminating
one-third of the
department
staff would
cause delays.

"As the year goes by, we can
monitor revenues," Fields said.
"If it doesn't look like we're
going to hit our revenue number
we can always adjust staff during
the course of the year if neces-
sary, if work does drop dramati-
cally."
Fields said his staff was antic-
ipating $206,000 less in permit-
fee revenue because of the con-
struction slowdown.
Islamorada has one building
services director frid two inspec-
tors. Contractors said eliminating
one-third of the department staff
would cause delays that would be
catastrophic to the construction
industry and possibly affect the
entire local economy.
"It's a trickle-down effect for
me," said Mike Forster, owner of
Mangrove Mike's restaurant. "I
see [contractors] every day at 12
o'clock. And I see their people
that work for them every day at
12 o'clock.

Village sewer


fee is $63

Resorts pay
same amount as
condo owners
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The Islamorada Village
Council last Thursday officially
passed a $631 sewer fee despite
outcry from condominium own-
ers who say it's unfair.
The $631 fee, assessed on
each residential and commercial
property in the village, is expect-
ed to generate $2.5 million for
planning, designing, acquiring
land and permitting for a village
wastewater utility.
The cost for planning is pro-
jected at $22.6 million, while the
final cost of a villagewide sewer
system is projected at $125 mil-
lion to $150 million.
The Keys are under a state
mandate to upgrade to advanced
wastewater treatment by July
2010. Islamorada. officials
expect to miss that deadline by
18 months.
The $631 assessment is will
act as a "down payment,"
according to village staff, and
will be deducted from property
owners' final wastewater con-
nection charges once those fig-
ures are determined and
assessed.
The only properties that
won't be assessed $631 are those
where owners already paid to
connect to the North Plantation
Key wastewater treatment plant.
However, those owners will
eventually share the costs of the


ISLAMOADA 1


entire wastewater system.
At the Sept. 11 Village
Council meeting, several condo
owners said the fee is unfair
because multi-unit condo build-
ings will be charged several
thousand dollars, while similarly
sized resorts with multiple hotel
rooms would be charged only a
single $631 assessment.
However, staff said condo
units are considered residential
homes, not commercial units.
Condo owners should also see
significant savings in final
hookup costs, as condo units are
charged at eight-tenths the cost
of single-family homes for sys-
tem usage.
Condo owners will also split
the costs of only a few connec-
tions from their buildings to the
sewer system, whereas single-
family homeowners will have to
pay for individual connections.
"They've got individual par-
cel numbers 'like individual
property owners, but the differ-
ence is they are all stacked up in
a building instead of having a
yard around them," Village
Finance Director Cindy Lawson
said. "The reason it seems
skewed is condominiums are
thinking of themselves as a
group. They are not."

The Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District's board
approved a $70 million capital
budget and $7 million operating
budget by a 4-1 vote Tuesday
night.
The capital budget for the
2009 fiscal year, which begins
Oct. 1, is almost 50 percent
more than the current budget.
Commissioner Gary Bauman
cast the only no vote.


Much of the money $24
million is to complete a cen-
tralized treatment 'plant, with
$5.5 million to be spent on a
deep injection well, said Chuck
Fishburn, the district's general
manager.
The rest-of the money is to
complete sewage collection sys-
tems throughout Key Largo,
which cost around $10 million
each, and to construction a
transmission line from the treat-
ment plant to Tavernier,
Fishburn said. -

Bauman said he didn't object
to the capital budget, but he
voted against the entire budget
because it includes a 5-percent
cost-of-living increase for
wastewater district employees.
Bauman said the across-the-
board raises are unjustified dur-
ing tight economic times.
"It seems to me that if
[Monroe] County can't give
raises to its police officers and
other employees, we shouldn't
be doing it either," Bauman
said.

Man reportedly

attacks wife, son


Dieter already
on probation for
attempted murder
A Marathon man was jailed
early Tuesday on a laundry list
of felonies after he reportedly
beat his wife and threatened .to
kill her and his 18-year-old son. *.
Walter Dieter, 45, is charged
with aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon, assault, battery,
cultivation of 'marijuana and
destruction of evidence. He was
also charged with violation of
probation.
Dieter is reportedly on proba-
tion for attempted murder stem-
ming from a domestic incident
in January 2004. During that
incident, he beat his girlfriend,
tried to suffocate her and threat-
ened to stab her with a screw-
driver, according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
that just before midnight,
deputies were called to a home


on 5th Avenue Gulf. When they
arrived, they found Dieter's wife
and his son, along with Dieter,
who was holding a golf club.
Herrin said Dieter was drunk
and that he was arguing with his
wife and son, and hit his wife
several times while they argued.
When his son tried to defend
his mother, Dieter grabbed the
golf club and chased him while
swinging at him. When he
couldn't catch his son, he began
beating on his son's truck with
the club, finally breaking it after
causing a number of large dents,
Herrin said.
Both said they believed he
meant what he said that he
would kill them, Herrin said.
She said that while at the
house, deputies found evidence
that Dieter was growing mari-
juana. he also said it appeared
Dieter had destroyed some mar-
ijuana plants he was growing,
possibly when he knew deputies
were en route to the house.


Cushy: Hotel

offers free beds


Doubletree
says just go
and get one
Keynoter Staff


The Doubletree Grand Key
Resort in Key West has a bed
ready and waiting, but it's not
what you think.
The hotel is replacing all of its
king- and queen-size bed frames
and the old beds are available for
free pick-up on a first-come
basis.
"That doesn't mean the beds
we're giving away there's
nothing wrong with them," said
Andrea Anapol, spokeswoman
for the Doubletree. The beds are
periodically replaced in an effort
to "honor Doubletree standards."
Called the Great Bed
Giveaway, the idea is that anyone
who wants. : to go to the
Doubletree and get a bed need
only to "come to the front desk


and ask for Lane," the hotel's
chief engineer. "Bring a pick-up
truck," Anapol said.
Through today, the
Doubletree is giving away queen-
size beds. The time frame corre-
sponds to a delivery of 80 new
queen beds for use in the hotel
rooms.
"We picked up the. king size;
we haven't gotten to the queens
yet. We picked up 25 beds. We
had to rent a U-Haul," says Ann
Riddel, the manager of
Secondhand Sam's on Stock
Island said.
Secondhand Sam's is a chari-
table nonprofit. "All proceeds go
to support Kathy's Hope and
Samuel's House," Riddel said.
Both charities provide tempo-
rary and long-term shelter to
homeless women and their chil-
dren. The king-size beds will be
sold at Secondhand Sam's for
$75 apieed.

Changes are cooking


Restaurateurs
pouring cash
into properties
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

If you've been down to Key
West's historic seaport in the last
few weeks, you might have
noticed the yellow tape around
the front of Turtle Kraals. But the
restaurant is not closing, and it's
not been sold. Quite the opposite.
The owner, Gene Smith, is
investing $400,000 in making
over Turtle Kraals, which sits on
the site of the old turtle cannery,
and next to the kraal, or corral,
where green turtles once paddled
about before they were canned
and sold around the world.
The renovations to Turtle
Kraals are extensive. Smith is
building an exhibition kitchen
with a glass front so diners can
watch their fish cooking on an
open grill. He's ordered an 18-
wheeler of mesquite logs and is
bringing in a smoker, maybe the
only one in Key West. He's also
bringing in a cook whose special-
ty is barbecuing and grilling.
When the restaurant opens back
up next month, it'll be brighter,
and livelier, with an air-condi-
tioned diting room and a new
sound system. .And you'll be able


to eat dinner at the Tower Bar on
the second floor, where before
you could only drink..
Smith is one of those investing
in his business in hard economic
times. But tourism has remained
fairly strong in Key West, thanks,
in part, to the increase in the
number of Europeans visiting
here. And it's easier now and
cheaper to find talented people
to do renovations, according to
Theresa Rothaus, who oversees
Smith's properties in Key West.
Smith owns four restaurants at
the waterfront in Key West: the
Half Shell Raw Bar, Turtle
Kraals, the A&B Lobster House
and Alonzo's Oyster House, all
four of which he bought from
Paul Trip in April of 2003. He
also owns a boutique bar called
the White Tarpon and, since
1997, has owned the .A&B
Marina. He's one of the island's
most successful restaurateurs,
and is bullish on the future of Key
West, saying he thinks the local
economy will really rebound in
late 2009.
In a phone conversation with
the Keynbter this week, Smith
says business was.good this year,
surprisingly good,- before
Tropical Storm Fay came this
way, and then Gustav, and then
Ike. Alonzo's, he says, did better
than last year and the Half Shell


Raw Bar and A&B Lobster
House held steady. Turtle Kraals
is the only one of the four restau-
rants, he says, where business
slipped this year. It was down 4-5
percent from last year. This, of
course, was another reason to
spend money on renovating. "I
sort of thought the restaurant
needed a new look," he says.

Marathon
John Mirabella, owner of
Castaway Restaurant, stopped to
talk with two diners last week
about the changes he's made to
his restaurant over the last year.
Almost half the pier-side
restaurant collapsed into the
marina last year in a freak acci-
dent, dumping a table of diners
into the water. Mirabella didn't'
wait for the insurance money. He
says he's spent $800,000 of his
own money to rebuild. He raised
the roof, giving the dining room
high ceilings with exposed fix-
tures. And he's extending the
inside bar, where people can
watch news and games on flat-
screen televisions.
One upside for the Keys of a
down economy may be that, with
a volatile stock market and shaky
real estate market, business own-
ers like Smith and Mirabella are
more likely to invest their money
in improving properties they
already own,.

we work hard to drum up some
business for everyone," said
Steve Dimse, ranger at Curry

the festival's organizers. "We also
want to raise local awareness of
the treasures" available in the
Keys.
Those local treasures include
Curry Hammock, a 1,000-acre.

Highway from Marathon's main
drag.
The festival's not all for the
birds. There are opportunities for
people to paddle, walk and bike,
as well as visit some of the
islands' premier natural areas and
tour the facilities that care for
dolphins and turtles.
The festival's main events are
Friday through Sunday, but
Dimse says locals or early
arrivals have a few opportunities
to get out today and Thursday.
There's a 10 a.m. walk today
at Curry and an 11 a.m. Thursday

State-ranked
team always
plays tough
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


This is the week the Key
West High School football team
will find out how good it is.
"Or how bad," said coach
Jerry Hughes, whose 2-1
Conchs will play longtime rival
Monsignor Pace (also 2-1)'in a
District 16-3A opener at 7:30
p.m. Friday in Opa-locka.
It will be the Conchs' first
road game of the season and
will be against a team ranked
seventh in the state in Class 3A
by the Associated Press and
ninth in South Florida by the
Miami Herald.
"They've got a lot of talent
- the best team money can
buy," said Hughes, referring to
Pace's recruiting ability as a
private school. "It's a big test
for us. To have a chance, we'll
have to be at our best and they
will have to be at their worst."
Key West last defeated Pace.
in 2000, and since 1989 has
beaten the Spartans only twice.
The Conchs are coming off a


52-0 victory Friday night over
Florida Christian at Tommy
Roberts Memorial Stadium. It
was the second consecutive
shutout for Key West, which
hasn't allowed a point in 10
consecutive quarters.
That's a streak that Hughes
acknowledges has a good
chance of being snapped this
week.
"If we keep [Pace] off the
scoreboard ... man, we've got a
hell of a defense," he said.
"They have more speed than we
do and are so much bigger."
The scoring barrage against
Florida Christian began when
quarterback Stephen Jones and
wideout Phillip Young com-
bined on a 38-yard pass play
for a touchdown in the first
quarter.
Young, a junior, has
emerged as the team's leader.
"There hasn't been a senior
who's shown leadership abili-
ties," Hughes said.
.Jones scored two TD's him-
self against the Patriots, on runs
of two and eight yards. Also
scoring two touchdowns each
were Alfred Rahming, on runs

Fumbles cost the Hurricanes


Coral Shores junior T.J. Sabalka (24) gets blocking help from
Travis Sebastian and Eric Waite (78) on a run around end in a
38-14 loss to Westminster Christian. Sabalka had two long pass
receptions, including a 53-yard touchdown.


CORAL SHORES / From 15

yard field goal on its second
possession.
Although Westminster
seemed to dominate the first
half, Coral Shores forced
turnovers and was down only
10-7 at intermission.
"We were in game and felt
pretty good about it," Gideon
said.
In the second half, howev-
er, the Warriors went to their
pow-er-run ground game, using
a big offensive line to grind
down the Coral Shores
defense.
"We had too many three-
and-out series on offense,"
Gideon said. "We kept sending
our defense back onto the
field. Eventually they wore
down."
On their first drive of the
second half, the Warriors went


63 yards on five plays -
including three straight runs
of more than 15 yards each.
The third quarter ended at
17-7, but Coral Shores lost
two late fumbles that set up
short scoring drives for the
Warriors in the fourth. The
drives of 21 and 30 yards each
required just two running
plays to score.
Westminster also scored on
an 18-yard pass to complete a
50-yard drive after the Canes
had to gamble, unsuccessfully,
on fourth down at midfield.
In their last possession, the
Hurricanes needed just 1:16
and two plays to go 80 yards
for their second touchdown.
Rini threw to Sabalka, who
broke free for a 53-yard scor-
ing pass. A 12-yard run by
Hampson set up the throw.
- Rini was 9-of-25 for the
game for 150 yards and two
touchdowns and no intercep-


tions. Hampson had five
catches for 48 yards.
With several players side-
lined, Coral Shores was thin at
running back. The ground
game never found much trac-
tion.
"We know we have to find
ways to move the ball offen-
sively," Gideon said.
Hampson, a 5-foot-8 speed-
ster, had runs of 12 and 13
yards late in the game so he

Marathon next travels to Key West for tournament


LADY FINS / From 15

played each opponent closely and
weren't out of any game they
played.
"We wanted to see how we
match up against better teams,"
she said. "Nobody we played was
bad; everyone looked like they'll
be contenders in their district."
The weekend started off with a
match against University School,


in which the Dolphins won the
opening game 26-24 before drop-
ping the next two, 20-25 and 15-
17. Teams play best-of-three
matches in tournament play.
"As a team we probably
played the best we did in the
whole tournament" against
University, Eigner said.
Sophomore Kelley Struyf led
the Dolphins with 13 kills and
three blocks in the match. Senior
Morgan Longstreth had three'


kills and two blocks.
In the next match, the
Dolphins lost a close opening
game 25-27 before dropping the
second 20-25.
Struyf and senior Vanessa
Sardina each had two blocks, sen-
ior Ashley Hooper served two
aces and Jeannette Betancourt
and Patricia Bologna each had
two digs in the match.
In its third match, Marathon
faced off against Class 6A Varela


High School, a team that Eigner
said made it to the championship
game in the tournament. The
Dolphins lost 17-25 and 20-25.
"They had some really good
servers and some girls who hit
the" ball hard, Eigner said. "We
hung in there; the girls didn't get
intimidated."
Sardina had five blocks and
two kills to lead a defense that
Eigner said kept the Dolphins
competitive against Varela.


"She definitely has picked it
up and become a force at the net,"
Eigner said of Sardina.
The Dolphins ended their
tournament with a match against
Carrollton School, winning the
first game 25-17, before losing
out 20-25 and 15-17.
Marathon (3-5) is off this
week before traveling to Key
West to 'compete in a weekend
tournament.

Coral Shores swimmers
made it close against South
Florida power Ransom
Everglades but can do better,
said Hurricane coach Mark
Hill.
The Hurricane boys came
within a single point of beating
the Raiders boys team, .51-50.
Ransom used its depth to
take the girls' dual meet score,
59-39, over Coral Shores.
In the tri-meet Friday at
Founders Park, scored as a
series of dual meets, Coral
Shores beat Miami Country
Day, 71-27, for the girls and 61-
40 for the boys.
"We definitely swam a good

got 'em."
Hill continued, "We're try-
ing to step up to show we can

schools like Ransom and
Gulliver Prep. Our kids are
state quality, and need to
believe they're better than sec-

In the tri-meet, Coral Shores

Author Carl
SHiaasen (left)
celebrates his
Fifth Fall Fly
-Bonefish
..Rm Tournament
.....win with his
guide and
friend Tim Klein.


Hiaasen authors 5th win


He now ranks
among the best
in the Fall Fly

There are what can be called
ironman fishing tournaments in
the Keys such as the five-day
Golden Fly and five-day Gold
Cup, which require captains and
anglers to fly fish for the silver
king relentlessly 10 hours
a day.
Just about copy that type of
hectic schedule and fierce com-
petition, and you have the
Islamorada Invitational Fall Fly
Bonefish Tournament, which cel-
ebrated its 32nd year last week.
Names that have graced the
champion's board over the years
are the elite of fly fishing enthusi-
asts and have found their place in
Florida Keys history: Billy Pate,
Flip Pallot, Glen Flutie, Richard
Stanczyk, Sandy Moret and
Andy Mill.
.Baseball fans often-ponder at
what point a player becomes a
hall-of-famer. Well, those men-
tioned above are enshrined in our
make-believe fishing hall of
fame. And now you can add
another after his fifth win in
seven years competing in the Fall
Fly off Islamorada: Carl Hiaasen.
Most know Hiaasen as an
author and columnist who takes
all of his inspiration from South
Florida. And all one needs to do
is pick up one of his books such
as "Stormy Weather" or "Native


Tongue" to
realize his
love affair
with fish-
ing and the
Keys.
S Pick up
a Sunday

Herald and
in the
Issues &
Ideas sec-
tion, it's
Cal Sutphin not uncom-
mon to
read Hiaasen's take on
Everglades restoration or the
snail's-pace movement on gov-
ernment funding to move the
restoration along.
Hiaasen simply loves the
Keys and has become one of the
most proficient fly anglers to
stalk our skinny water flats.
His guide, Capt. Tim Klein,
who celebrated his seventh victo-
ry in the Fall Fly, tying him with
Capt. Steve Huff, says Hiaasen
has great eyesight.
"I don't let Carl use a casting
platform because he uses it like a
Stairmaster. He's up and down on
it all day," Klein says. "He's one
of the only people who don't
need the extra height. He has the
eyesight of a fishing guide.
Probably the best set of eyes of
anyone I have ever fished."
The tournament is based on
the team with the most points.
Anglers receive points for
released fish as well as bonefish


believed to be more than eight
pounds that are brought to the
Lorelei docks in Islamorada and
weighed; those fish are subse-
quently released unharmed.
Hiaasejn and Klein put the
pressure on immediately and
never let up. '
After day one, they registered
one weight fish and three releases
to lead the pack of 23 teams.
Day 2 saw one more weight
fish and yet another release, and
then icing the victory on Day 3,
four releases and one more
weight fish.
Of the 65 total releases and
eight weight fish registered by all
23 teams, Hiaasen and Klein reg-
istered eight of the releases and
three weight fish combined.
Tim Mahaffey of Miami,
guided by Capt. Duane Baker,
was second, earning all his points
on Day 3 by catching one weight
fish of 11.5 pounds; he had seven
releases the two previous days.
The hard-luck story of the
tournament goes beyond just hard
luck. More like incredibly bad
luck, as Capt. Bob Branham of
Homestead was opening a gate to
a driveway at 5:30 a.m. when a
car slammed into the back of his
Hells Bay skiff.
Branham escaped unharmed,
but his skiff wasn't as lucky -
the whole back end was smashed.
Branham also had his skiff, truck
and trailer stolen from his house
last year; all were later recovered
by authorities sans engine and
tackle.
