Keys man rescued


after 6 days adrift


Beaudet lucks out
when seen by
Customs plane
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A Key West treasure was
almost lost at sea when famed
palm weaver Michael Beaudet
was rescued from his disabled
sailboat Friday evening nine
miles north of Garden Key after
being adrift for six days.
"First the rum ran out, then.


the cigarettes ran out, then the
food ran out and then the water
ran out. Thank God for the
rain," said Beaudet, perched
atop a milk crate outside of the
La Concha Hotel on Duval
Street, where he sells handmade
palm baskets and hats.
Beaudet left from Key West
the morning of Sept. 20 to
escape the noise of the motorcy-
cles that came in for the Poker

Bruno: 'My



life was



destroyed'


Former McCoy aide
says harassment
was constant
By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@MiamiHerald.com

During this week's federal
jury.trial of Celeste Bruno vs.
Monroe County, the former exec-
utive assistant to then-county
Mayor Charles "Sonny" McCoy
didn't mince words:
"You're damn right I want
revenge," Bruno testified
Tuesday. "My life was destroyed.
Did I want [McCoy] to suffer in
the same way? Yes."
The trial stems from a lawsuit
Bruno filed last November. She
alleges McCoy created a hostile
work environment by sexually


harassing her during the 13
months she worked for him in
2005 and 2006.
The lawsuit also charges the
county with failing to provide a
safe work environment while she
was stalked by Milo Reese, a
man convicted of stealing a plane
from the Marathon airport in
2001 and crashing it in Cuba.
Bruno, 41, seeks damages,
attorney fees and litigation costs
from the county. McCoy is not a
defendant and has not attended
the'trial.
A videotape of McCoy's dep-
osition was played for the jurors
on Monday, the opening day of
the civil trial.

on a 10-year, state-mandated
work plan to improve sewage
treatment and preserveenviron-


mentally sensitive land.
"I don't need anyone to
explain to me what substantial
progress is. We have failed to a
large degree," County
Commissioner George Neugent
told the Cabinet.

" Emery tried
rescuing dogs
from highway
McClatchy Tribune


The work crew from Florida
had just topped off a 13-hour day
of clearing Hurricane Ike debris
near the coast by devouring a hefty
meal at a Houston steakhouse.
After a short drive to his-
motel, all 54-year-old Robert
"Bob" Emery had left to do was
turn in for the night.
But then he heard about three
dogs that wandered to the edge of
the East Freeway in front of the
motel. They were huddling in the
emergency lane after one of them
was swiped by a minivan.
"Man, we can't leave them
dogs to die," Emery's friends
recalled him saying late Saturday
night, seconds before he-dashed
into the road and was fatally


struck by a passing motorcycle.
Emery, a Big Pine Key resi-
dent described as an all-around
handyman, was one of thousands
of workers who descended on
this region in the wake of Ike to
rebuild communities and make
some cash.
Like many of the other work-
ers from coastal states, Emery
had experienced first-hand the
damage hurricanes could do and
felt a need to reach out.
"We came here on a good mis-
sion, but Bob died on an even bet-
ter mission," said Nick Downs,
42, who knew him from the Keys
and was among a group of a
dozen men who went to Texas
together to help after the storm.
The 50-year-old motorcycle
rider from Pasadena was taken to
Ben Taib General Hospital with
a possible broken arm, Houston
police said.
The three dogs, found wearing
collars and tags, were rescued by
police and turned over to the city's


Bureau of Animal Regulation and
Care. The dogs were described
Monday as in good condition. The
agency was trying to find their
owner or owners.
Emery and most of the other
Florida men had seen their lives
and homes thrashed by Hurricane
Wilma three years ago and under-
stood what Texas was going
through, Downs said.
"We felt a real sense of
urgency to help people," Downs
said. "We'd been through this."
Emery had been in Houston
about five days and was sharing a
motel room with fellow crew
members as they worked in the
Galveston area.
Emery didn't talk about fami-
ly much but was believed to have
two adult children.
Friends said he lived in a trail-
er on Big Pine. He enjoyed a
tremendous view of the water and
loved to sail, but had lost his cata-
maran which was also his
home to Wilma.


Neugent: No park support


CABINET / From 1

for removal from the Area of
Critical State Concern program,"
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro said.
Tuesday, the Cabinet agreed,
extending state Department of
Community Affairs oversight of
Keys growth management for at
least a year.
How the county progresses
over that time will be finalized on
the local level during the next
month. Then county officials will
return to Tallahassee on Oct. 28
to report those specifics back to
the Cabinet.
Possibly missing: The idea of
having the federal government
designate environmentally sensi-
tive land sprinkled throughout the
Keys as a national park. County
officials say that would help with
the estimated $1.2 billion price
tag to acquire the 6,501 lots,
which have been deemed
unbuildable and therefore basi-
cally valueless to the owners.
"No one up here DCA [or
the Department of Environmental
Protection] is buying into this
national park idea.... It's getting
an absolute rejection by the
state," Neugent said after the
Cabinet meeting.
County Growth Management


Director Drew Trivette has put
together a seven-page plan for the
Keys' future development, called
"Planning the Balance for a
Sustainable Florida Keys
Initiative." It focuses on getting
national park status for the
islands' unbuildable land.
But nothing in that plan was
presented to the Cabinet Tuesday,
as had been expected. However,
Gastesi and others hinted that it's
the framework of what ultimately
will be brought back to
Tallahassee Oct. 28, working
with DCA..
Richard Grosso, director of
the Everglades Law Center at
Nova Southeastern University,
said DCA is now working as a
partner with county officials. The
relationship had long been adver-
sarial.
"There is a new attitude with
the county," he said of DCA. "I
sense an opportunity now to per-
haps make up for some lost
time."
Grosso, who represents the
environmental groups Last Stand
and the Florida Keys Citizens
Coalition, agreed with DCA's
recommendation to allow
Monroe County to continue to
receive 197 building permit allo-
cations over the next year rather
than have that number reduced


by 20 percent, which the Cabinet
could have done.
But he said there should be a
caveat retain all of the alloca-
tions only "if the framework we
have developed over the last few
days does get adopted next
month."
"I think obviously progress is
slow but it is being made,"
Attorney General Bill McCollum
said. McCollum, Gov. Charlie
Crist, Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson and Chief
Executive Officer Alex Sink
comprise the Cabinet.
But, McCollum warned, it's
important to lay out benchmarks,
adding he doesn't want to be
"disappointed next time.""
"We're going to pick up the
ball and run with it and turn some
things around, although we've
been dragging," Neugent said.
Visiting Marathon Tuesday,
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
said Di Gennaro and Gastesi both
floated the national park idea
with her last week. She says the
idea is intriguing but needs more
study.
"One of the best things you
can do is put it to a vote," she
said.
If a vote of residents was held,
it would not be binding.'

'She felt trapped and helpless'


McCOY / From 1

represents the county, questioned
Bruno on why she never told any-
one not even her husband -
about the alleged sexual harass-
ment while it was occurring.
Burke said that Bruno was
aware of Monroe County's sexu-
al harassment policies, which
were included in a video she
watched during orientation, but
did not follow them.
Bruno cried often while
telling the jury how her life
changed from happy to severely
*depressed during and after her
employment working first for
McCoy, and then for County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar.
She said she was forced for
her mental health to leave her
beautiful Key West home and
move back to her hometown of
Woburn, Mass., where she and
her husband are living with her
parents due to economics.
Clinical social worker
Marilyn Berner testified that she
diagnosed Bruno with depression
and post traumatic stress syn-
drome, and that while in Key
West she never got better because
of the reminders of the trauma.


"She felt trapped and helpless
in a situation where she asked
[McCoy] to stop and he didn't
stop," Berner said. "She felt a lot
of helpless rage."
Bruno testified that McCoy
repeatedly told her six stories
about his sexual exploits.
They included a menage a
trios in France that resulted in
problems with his sexual organ,
sexual services with a girl "Dah
ling" while on a cultural trip with
former George H.W. Bush in
China, having sex with prosti-
tutes in Cuba while doing archi-
tectural work and having an affair
with his neighbor's wife.
Bruno said McCoy "laughed"
when she asked him not to repeat
the stories.
Burke asked Bruno if McCoy
ever provided any "lurid details."
She answered no to each story.
"But isn't that bad enough?"
she said of the stories that made
her feel uncomfortable.
Bruno's last day working for
McCoy was March 29, 2006.
After walking out on McCoy,
Bruno eventually was transferred
to work for Spehar in the same
capacity as executive assistant.
During that time, Bruno filed
a complaint with the U.S. Equal


Employment Opportunity
Commission, which was made
public in a newspaper article.
Shortly after that, Bruno said
she began to be threatened by
Reese with visits from him Nov.
13 and 16.
"I was scared of Mr. Reese,"
Bruno testified. "He was crazy,
someone not taking his medica-
tion and fixated on me. I was the
target because of complaints I
filed against Mayor McCoy."
A trespass warrant was issued
against Reese and the county
installed a panic button for
Bruno. She testified that she was
told deputies at the next-door
courthouse would immediately
come to her rescue if she pushed
that panic button.
On Nov. 30, 2007, Reese
returned. Bruno testified she
pushed the panic button and no
deputies came. She ran out of the
office. Reese was arrested and
sentenced to 21 months in jail.
But Bruno, after consulting
with Berner, quit working for
Spehar that day.
"I advised her not to return,"
Berner said, "that it was harmful
to her mental health."
The trial is expected to contin-
ue through Friday.

Tourists start
weighing in on
grouper plan
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com

Mulling his winter travel
plans from his home in
Kenosha, Wis., James Olsen
represents the worst fear of
the Florida Keys sportfishing
industry.
"If they take away grouper
for four months, I may look at
going somewhere else," Olsen
said. "The Bahamas isn't that
much more expensive, you
know."
Olsen enjoys two things
about previous winters in the
Lower Keys: "The weather
and fishing."
"That's what I come down
there for," Olsen said. "I don't
catch a lot of grouper but I
enjoy going out to try. I can't
believe they're trying to take
them away."
Olsen's feelings represent
charter captains' worst fear -
tourists deciding to head
places other than the Keys.
About 75 people turned out
for a Monday meeting in Key
West called by charter captain
Andy Griffiths to rally oppo-
sition to a pending closure on
red grouper, black grouper
and gag grouper, from Jan. 1
through April.
The federal South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council
voted for the emergency clo-
sure in Atlantic Ocean waters
beyond the state's three-mile
territorial waters. The closure
covers an area from Key West
to North Carolina.-
"I cannot stress enough,
this is happening for no good
reason," Griffiths said. "I
have a reputation as the guy
who usually is the calm one.
But this is so bad, it's driven
even me over the edge."
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson turned out for the
Monday meeting and pledged
his support for a City
Commission resolution oppos-
ing the closure, Griffiths said.
"This affects me directly


but it's going to affect every-
one else here indirectly," said
Capt. Yuri Vakselis of the Key
West charterboat Laura Jean.
"Not too many people know
what's going on. When the
tourists get back to town, I
think there will be an outcry."
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen, which represents
the Keys, asked the secretary
of the U.S. Department of
Commerce, who oversees the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration's
Fisheries Service, to reconsid-
er the closure, citing the
potential loss of tourism.
Ros-Lehtinen is trying to
schedule a telephone confer-
ence call with Commerce
Secretary Carlos Gutierrez
and aggrieved local residents.
No date has been confirmed.
At this point, it appears
only Gutierrez can halt the
closure.
"We're' saying this will
have dire economic conse-
quences for 600 charter fish-
ing captains and crewmen in
Monroe County, in addition to
effects on all the related busi-
nesses like hotels, restaurants
and tackle shops," Islamorada
charter captain Bill Kelly
said.
The Islamorada Charter
Boat Association likely will
call an emergency meeting to
weigh in on the issue, and
could seek a resolution from
the Islamorada Village
Council, Kelly said.
A public meeting similar to
Monday's session in Key.
West is being planned for the
Upper Keys but no date has
been confirmed.
Griffiths briefed the crowd
at Old City Hall about the
proposed ban and asked them
to "put pencil to paper" to
write the commerce secretary.
"Personal letters get
noticed," he said. "Petitions
and form letters don't get it
done."
Florida Sportsman maga-
zine editors will spotlight the
grouper issue on its online
Keys fishing forum to alert
out-of-state anglers.

'Lord..., I'm sorry'


RESCUE / From 1

said.
It was smooth sailing that day,
but winds and water picked up
the next day, a Sunday.
Beaudet said a quarter-inch
piece of steel hardware that sup-
ported his main mast line
snapped and then the tension
from an unanchored mast ripped
the screws out of the deck sup-
port.
At that point, the mast fell.
Beaudet struggled to keep it
upright. "The seas were too
rough; there's no way," he said.
Beaudet's limited food supply
quickly ran out. He ate Heinz 57
and BBQ sauce until the jars
were empty.
Beaudet ran out of water, too,
but was able to use his rain pon-
cho to catch rainwater;
By Thursday, after five days
adrift, Beaudet began to lose his
spirit. He kept a journal while
waiting for rescue. On a page
titled "Lost at Sea, Day 5," it
says, "I haven't seen anything in
4 days. One would never think
the ocean is so empty."
He passed the time by putting
his energy to use and trying to
catch food.
Beaudet described using a
gaffing pole to quickly pluck sea-
weed from the water in the hope
that if done fast enough, some
feeding shrimp would still be
attached. "It occupies the time,"


he said.
Beaudet also fashioned a rudi-
mentary fishing pole out of a
flashlight, fishing line and a hook
outfitted as a lure using strips of
fabric from his poncho and dive
flag.
Beaudet said sharks circled his
boat in the morning and the
evening. While he knew the
sharks were looking for food, he
didn't think their hunger was on
par with his:
"You're looking at me, I'm
looking at you," he said. He even
rigged up a piece of board with a
harness connected to a pulley
intending to use it to drag a shark
into the boat.
Beaudet went to sleep his final
evening thinking, "I'm out of
food now; I haven't seen nothing,
nobody." But then, "I get woke
up to the bullhorn."
Finally a U.S. Customs and
Border Protection plane, working
with the Coast Guard, spotted
Beaudet early Friday evening.
The Coast Guard contacted
national park rangers stationed at
Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas
and a boat was dispatched, to
retrieve Beaudet from his 7.5-
meter Tanzer.
Beaudet described coming out
on deck and yelling, "I'm adrift!"
The response was immediate:
"We know!"
Shrugging off questions about
medical assistance, Beaudet
made one thing clear: "Look, I'm
hungry."

Palm-frond weaver Robert Beaudet is back at work following


his six-day ordeal.
"He had no radio, minimal
supplies. He was lucky we found
him," said National Park Service
spokeswoman Linda Friar,
The rescue took place in 9-
foot seas and it was a struggle just
to get Beaudet from one boat to
another; his. boat, which is also.
his home, was not recovered.
Beaudet was taken back to the
ranger station at the Dry Tortugas
and supplied with a warm room
to sleep in and 3 MRE rations.
"Needless to say, when I was
done, there was nothing left," he


said. "Even the roaches would've
starved."
The next morning, Beaudet
hopped a ride back to Key West
on the fast cat that runs between
Key West and the Dry Tortugas
shuttling tourists. "The rangers
were great, wonderful people. All
of them."
Throughout his ordeal, he said
he recited only one prayer.
"Lord, whatever I did to piss
you off, I'm sorry." Someone
must have been listening. One
hour later, Beaudet was rescued.

Ros-Lehtinen right

to bail on bailout

Wall Street's 485-point gain Tuesday followed a 777-point
loss the day before.
We're getting whiplash.
Monday's rout came after a massive bailout plan failed to
pass the U.S. House.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who voted against the plan,
told the Keynoter editorial board Tuesday that her vote is
linked to a key demand: "No bailouts for any of these guys."
"These guys" are the big banks and arbitrage players who
goosed earnings by bundling bad mortgages and selling them
off to investors around the world.
She urged "more protections for pension funds, retirement
accounts and saving accounts" for taxpayers, who ultimately
foot the bill.
The bailout plan proposed by Treasury Secretary Henry
Paulson and the White House was "negotiated behind closed
doors," Ros-Lehtinen complained, noting the huge price tag -
$700 billion and adding that "the devil is in the details."
She was among a majority of her party's House members
who voted against the GOP leadership on Monday. -
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to convince enough
Democrats in her own party to support the plan, to offset GOP
defections, even though the plan was hammered out over the
weekend between a bipartisan leadership group and the White
House.
The plan grew from three pages outlined by Paulson last.
week to more than 100 pages. But nothing in the proposal
rejected Monday would have directly helped tens of thousands
of homeowners facing foreclosure, especially those who are
upside down in their adjustable-rate loans (where what they
owe is more than the house could sell for in today's depressed
realty market).
Ros-Lehtinen, again breaking from the Republican ranks,
said she wants to see bankruptcy judges given the power to
renegotiate the terms of those bad loans. Doing that would
reduce foreclosures and keep lenders from having to write off
huge losses.
That could also help ease the credit crisis, which has frozen
bank lending.
She talked about a more targeted approach rather than a blank
check with few controls on how Treasury would spend the
money. And said she heads back to Washington today, adding,
"I'm hopeful we can come back with a better bill."
There's a lot riding on Act 2 in this drama. And it demands a
bipartisan coalition to focus aid where it can do the most good,
not where the loudest shouts are coming from Wall Street.

New sheriff needs to ensure speed limits are enforced


EDITOR:
I wonder if the majority of property owners in
unincorporated. Monroe County look at where
their tax money goes. This year the proposed
taxes for the sheriff, courts, jail, ambulance and
fire departments is 33.6 percent of the total, or
one-third, of their taxes.
Now, with U.S. 1 being as dangerous as it is
and getting worse every year, these taxes are nec-
essary. What I don't understand is why, when the
speed limits are adequately posted along the
entire highway in the county, these limits can't be
controlled much better? I have lived on Little
Torch Key for 21 years and the situation has
become increasingly worse. Now every time I am


on the highway, going the speed limit, I am seri-
ously tailgated even by 18-wheelers.
A few years back, I was rear-ended by a
garbage truck while I was stopped for a school
bus. The only thing that saved me was the boat I
was trailering, which took the impact of the
crash. The boat was knocked off the trailer and
traveled more than 25 feet along the side of my
van, which was severely damaged. The boat and
trailer were totaled.
I hope other people who are concerned with
this problem of speed-limit enforcement will let
our candidates for sheriff know.

Clean up 15th Street in Marathon


EDITOR:
The city of Marathon is a wonderful place to
live, and I have lived in Marathon for over 30
years. There are so many great restaurants to go-
to and most of the town is very clean and beauti-
ful. However, there are a few areas that really
need some attention.
I was recently going out to eat at a restaurant
on 15th Street. It is a great place right on the
water and the food is fabulous. As I was driving
down 15th Street, I was very disappointed to see
that the area looked the same. I do not know how


TV news reporters
damage the Keys
EDITOR:
As an owner of a vacation rental in Key
Colony Beach, I saw a drop in bookings way
back in March. I called the governor's office and
stressed how bad it is going to be, and if some-
thing was done now, maybe we can still save the
season.
Back then, the concern with visitors was the
cost of gas for both the trip down and for the
boat, and a hotel tax. But a good part of the lack
of visitors is that they think that we are ravaged
with hurricane damage.
The Weather Channel and other 24-hour news
channels blow up these rainstorms into some-
thing they're not and the visual impact stays with
people for a very long time. Winter numbers still
aren't what they should be.
Yes, we. must be vigilant about hurricanes, but
this constant banging of the drum is causing
businesses to close. People are losing hard-to-
come-by jobs just so the Weather Channel and
other mainstream media can sell advertising.
We need a commercial to undo the damage
done by the 24-hour devastation bombardment
that shows that we are not in dire straits, and the
weather is beautiful and everything is just fine.
Jear Hering
Key Colony Beach
Editor's note: Following Hurricane Ike,
the Tourist Development Council advertised
on the mainland and in USA Today that the
Keys were fine. .,k ,


anyone can let these problems continue. The
problems on 15th Street are so apparent. It
should not take local businesses or the residents
to set the city or the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office into action. I am more than confident that
the taxes we all pay can afford enforcement of
the law.
15th Street and the trailer park are infested
with drugs and people who are able to do any-
thing they please. These are just a few of the
things I have seen while driving down 15th
Street: Prostitution, public intoxication, littering,
indecent exposure and, last but not least, distribu-
tion of illegal narcotics. The saddest part of this
whole problem is all of this takes place during
the day and obviously not enough is being down
about it because none of the people committing
these crimes care about who is driving by while
they are doing it.
The last time I drove down 15th Street,.I had
to stop [for] a car in the middle of the road and
watch while drugs and money were exchanged
and they didn't think twice about it. That will be
the last time I take my family to a restaurant on
that street again. As for me, I will still go and sup-
port these businesses, because it is not their fault
the city or the Sheriff's Office will not take the
time to enforce the law and clean up 15th Street.

County cuts
outside lawyers,
saves $600,000
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A 2009 Monroe County
budget of $85.28 inillion
approved Monday will require
a 7.78 percent increase in
property taxes over the roll-
back rate.
"It's a tough year, and it



t (lag S- [ abu.i-

key*mi* s@


will be tough years in the
future," county Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro said.
"Not one commissioner up
here is happy about raising
taxes but our backs are against
the wall," Di Gennaro said. "I
think everyone realizes that."
The final budget hearing at
the Key Largo library attract-
ed about 30 people, but only
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce board Chairwoman
Katrina Lavene offered public
comment.
Lavene said the business
community "counts on the
County Commission to be
good stewards of our [tax]
money," and urged the board
to adopt the lowest possible
property tax rate "in these lean
economic times."

"Please keep cutting before
the small-business community
is bled to death," she said.
SThe board adopted a tax
rate of 3.19 mills after approv-
ing $673,935 in new cuts from
a tentative budget of
$85,952,331.
The rollback level, or the
level that would raise as much
tax revenue in the 2009 fiscal
year as was raised in 2008,
was 2.94 mills.
Most of the latest cuts came
from a $600,000 legal budget
to hire outside attorneys for
growth-management issues
"It's one of those rare cases
where it's cheaperFto hire
somebody in-house," County
Administrator Roman Gastesi
said.
Gastesi recounted a county
reorganization that in the past
nine months has reduced nine
staff divisions to five, and
eliminated 64 staff positions.
"We were a little top-
heavy" with division man-
agers, Gastesi said, describing
the current workforce as "a
more sleek organization."
The latest trims also pared
$25,000 from park irrigation
and playground equipment;
$10,000 from allowing flex
time instead of overtime in
Public Works; and $39,000 in
"reduced budgeted transfers."
"We started out around $11
million in the hole," Gastesi
said.
The budget and millage
passed unanimously, along
with special taxing district
assessments.
Also at the budget hearing,
the administrator and mayor
explained a possible request
for federal park status for
undeveloped land in the Keys.
Monroe County could face
a $1.5 billion bill for buying
developable land needed to
protect the environment, they
said.
"We need to get money
down here for these [land] tak-
ings or the county will be in
trouble," Di Gennaro said.
"We've done everything we
can. Our pockets are empty."

Eateries


close


for now
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Two restaurants in the Keys
have closed temporarily while
owner Santiago Adames recov-
ers from a head-on collision that
has left him unable to speak or
walk.
Liliam Guzman, the -wife of
Adames, shut both the Miami
Subs in Marathon and Country
Gulls in Tavernier on Monday.
"There's no date for reopen
yet because no one can run it in
his name. He's the sole share-
holder in the corporation," said
family friend Tanya Green.
Adames, 42, was trying to
pass a car'in the northbound lane
of U.S. 1 on Sept. 11 when he
collided head-on with Timothy
Prigge of Key West. The acci-
dent happened on the Long Key
Bridge, north of Marathon.
Adames and Prigge were both
seriously injured and airlifted to
the Ryder Trauma Center at the
University of Miami. Elizabeth
Coats, 43, and a toddler were
passengers in the 2000 Nissan
driven by Prigge. They were
both transported to Mariners
Hospital in Tavernier.
Prigge nearly lost his right
foot and has bruised lungs from
the impact of the seat belt, while
Coats shattered bones in her foot
and had multiple broken ribs.
The one-and-a-half-year-old girl
suffered bums on her neck from
the airbag and corneal abrasions.
Green said she's unaware of
the full extent of Adames'.
injuries, but says he had infec-
tions in some internal organs and
two blood clots on his brain.
Adames is unable to speak,
but on Sunday was communicat-
ing with wife Liliam Guzman by
blinking his eyes to answer
"yes" or "no" to questions.
Doctors are keeping Adames
sedated, Green said, because of
the pain he is experiencing.
Green, along with family and
friends of Adames, are planning
a charity adult soccer tournament
at the Marathon Community
Park on Oct. 19. Children's activ-
ities will be available all day, as
well as concessions, music and a
fish fry-planned for 4:30 p.m.

College forms dorm group


Ite w to Ever. year, over 2110, 000 people are
lhkInpituli:'ed hecau.e of flii
i c pli actions.


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys Com-
munity College Board of
Trustees met Tuesday night in
Key West and voted to establish
a nonprofit corporation to
administer the financing and
construction of a dormitory that
would house up to 100 students.
Initial plans for the dormitory
called for the project to be
administered by the Florida
Keys Educational Foundation, a
direct support organization
(DSO) that acts as the college's
fundraising branch. The col-
lege's Board of Trustees, how-
ever, was forced to find an alter-
native after the foundation
board expressed that they did
not have the capability to under-
take such a large-scale project.
I The college is not allowed by
Florida statute to incur debt, so a
separate body has to undertake
the responsibility. The two
available options were to start a
DSO. overseen by the Board of
Trustees, or enter into a
public/private partnership in
which the college would lease
land to a developer who, in turn,


would oversee the financing of
the dorm and then return the
building back to FKCC control.
SFKCC attorney Buck Devane
expressed uncertainty about the
public/private partnership and
said that a DSO is "the proven
way" to get things done. This
sentiment was echoed by Board
of Trustees Chairman Ed Scales.
Ultimately, the Board of
Trustees elected to charter an
11-member board called the
Island Living Campus
Foundation Inc. Board members
went on to name nine people
who will sit on the new founda-
tion and left two more vacancies
to be filled by representatives
from the Middle and Upper
Keys.
The nine newly named mem-
bers of the Island Living
Campus Foundation are Barry
Barroso, Charlie Bradford,
Melissa Kendrick, Fred Sims,
Chris Belland, Mark Bailey,
FKCC President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle, FKCC
Finance Director John Kehoe
and Scales, who will act as the
go-between for the new DSO


and the Board of Trustees.
The first task of the Island
Living Campus Foundation will
be to issue a request for propos-
als.
Action on the dorm project
comes just in time: FKCC is
enjoying a substantial increase
in full-time enrollment. Last
year at this time, the college had
273 full-time students. This year
that number has jumped up to
367, a 34 percent increase.
FKCC also recently unveiled
a new, user-friendly interactive
Web site. The site is another step
in FKCC's plan to rebrand the
college and make it more
appealing to students from other
states and elsewhere in Florida.
The board also approved an

Lonnie E. Avra
Lonnie Avra, 59, of Coldwater, MI died Tuesday, September
23,.2008 in an aircraft accident in Atlanta, GA. Lonnie was the pilot
and sole occupant of the aircraft.
Lonnie was a well known and respected, self made, local busi-
ness man. Lonnie and Karen owned and operated many local busi-
nesses including BDS Suspension, Truckmaster Distributing, Avra
Warehousing and Cockbum Island Forrest products. Lonnie enjoyed
the outdoors and the wilderness. He owned real estate ventures in
Michigan, Florida, Alaska, Costa Rica and Ontario. He enjoyed
spending time at remote locations and found peace and inspiration
in the solitude it provided. Lonnie was an accomplished pilot who
loved flying. He accumulated over 3000 hours time, flying single
and multi-engine aircraft. He particularly enjoyed classic tailwheel
aircraft. Lonnie was a driven individual with a passion for excelling
at any project that he became involved with. He was always anxious
for a new adventure in the wilderness or in a new business venture.
Lonnie strived for new knowledge every moment he was awake. He
read hundreds of books on many topics ranging from farming oper-
ations to international bank investing. Most recently Lonnie became
involved in natural foods and health care practices. He became
director of and provided funding for the renovation and operation of
the Creative Health Institute in Hodunk, MI.
Lonnie was born November 19, 1948 in Union City, IN to
Everett and Martha (Thornburg) Avra. Lonnie was married to Karen
(Beckwith) Avra on November 23rd, 1966 in Union City, OH. They
had two children Shawn Patrick Avra and Corey Everett Avra.
Lonnie was very proud to have instilled his values and business
ethics in his sons Shawn and Corey, whom he always told everyone
were his two best friends. Shawn and Mary (Stark) have three chil-
dren, Elizabeth Ann Avra, Patrick Mitchell Avra and Alex Shawn
Avra. Corey and Michelle (Jeffrey) have two children, Allie Sue
Avra and Scott Everett Avra. Shawn's oldest daughter, Katie Lynn
Avra is engaged to be married to Jeff Chatfield. Lonnie is survived
by Karen, their two sons and their families, his mother Martha Avra,
his brothers Ronnie Avra, Keith Avra, Billie Avra, Freddie Avra and
his sister Judy Avra. Lonnie was preceded in death by his brother

Mold closes preschool,

High levels of mold have been

Wachovia was bought by Citigroup early Monday morning for about $2.2 billion. Wachovia has
two branches in the Keys one in Key West and one in Key Largo.


Wachovia devoured


First bank in
Keys to fall
in week of worries
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keyfioter.com

Under normal circumstances,
it might not have been a big deal
that a bank with branches in the
Keys had been bought by anoth-
er bank and will likely be
changing the sign above its
doors.
But at the same time it was
announced that a deal had been
reached for Citigroup to buy
Wachovia on Monday morning,
members of the House of
Representatives were hotly
debating the $700 billion bailout
plan, and some of them were
warning that the collapse of the
American banking system was
at hand.
The takeover of Wachovia
was not a takeover of the style
of the '80s or '90s. Federal reg-
ulators orchestrated the sale and
the purchase price of $2.2 bil-
lion and the federal government
agreed to absorb billions in loss-
es from bad loans.
Wachovia has the largest
banking operation in South


Florida, with 233 branches,
including two in the Florida
Keys one in Key West and
one in Key Largo. The bank has
been the largest issuer in the
nation of adjustable rate mort-
gages and its loan portfolio,
according to The New York
Times, is thought to be "littered"
with bad mortgages.
In front of the Wachovia
Financial Center on Northside
Drive in Key West on Monday
morning, most customers had
not yet heard of the takeover,
and were just going about their
normal business.
"This always happens to
me," said one Wachovia cus-
tomer when told that his bank
had been bought. He says he
picked Wachovia as his bank
because he travels and there are
so many branches around the
country. He was most concerned
on Monday morning with know-
ing whether the bank, if it was to
change its name to Citicorp,
would cover the $40 it would
cost him to order new checks.
A scrapbook kept at the
Wachovia Financial Center here
holds old newspaper clippings
that chronicle the history of the
bank, which began in 1891 as


Florida First National 'Bank at
the corner of Front and Duval
streets in Old Town Key West. It
was the only bank on the island
for a number of years. Ernest
Hemingway kept a safety
deposit box here. Its slogan was:
"The Old Reliable."
The branch at Front and
Duval closed in April of this
year, and staff shifted over to
the Northside Drive branch.
Branch manager Jacquie
Greis says it was somewhat of a
shock to hear of the bank's sale
on Monday when they came to
work. She showed the Keynoter
a fact sheet distributed recently
by the bank to calm customers'
concerns. It begins with these
words: "Wachovia is a strong
and stable company on solid
footing."
Greis said that only a handful
of customers had come to her
with concerns or questions by
midday on Monday, and that for
the most part, it was business as
usual. At 4:30 p.m., she was to
join a conference call, along
with the managers of the thou-.
sands of other Wachovia
branches spread across 21
states, where they would be
given more information about
the sale and the changes to take
place under the new owners.

Nearly three
years after
it was
destroyed
by an overly
active 2005
hurricane
season,
Indian Key's
dock was
rebuilt.

Welcome back to Indian Key


After three years,
boats start
running again
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Indian Key Historic State Park
will celebrate a reopening of sorts
Saturday when boat trips to the his-
toric Upper Keys island resume. -
The 11-acre island has been
inaccessible to all but those arriv-
ing via paddle power since the
island's dock was wiped out in
the hurricanes of 2005.
After three years and
$399,000 in repair work, the dock
is back in business, and the park
and its nonprofit booster group
are celebrating with a daylong
event Saturday.
Robbie's of Islamorada will
run the 30-passenger Happy Cat
out to the oceanside island every
half hour starting at 9 a.m. The
last trip will leave Robbie's dock
at mile marker 77.5 at 3 p.m.
The day's boat rides will be
free, thanks to the Friends of the
Islamorada Area State Parks, a
nonprofit group that supports
Indian Key and other state parks.
Once on the island, visitors
will be able to take a guided or
self-guided interpretive tour. Park
staff will be on hand to lead the
way, as will park volunteers.
There's no water or restrooms on
the island, but the Friends will
supply drinking water.
"This is letting us get our feet
wet," says Melba Nezbed, the
park's manager. "It's sort of a


Reintroduction to Indian Key."
There's a lot of history packed
onto the diminutive island.
Once the Dade County seat,
Indian Key was a prosperous
deep-water port used by wreckers
- those who salvaged the ships
that crashed into the reef and
traders in the first half of the 19th
Century.
During its heyday from 1830
to 1840, Indian Key had a popu-
lation of as many as 200 people
and many more visitors, Nezbed
says. It had businesses, a post
office, a hotel and even a billiards
room and dance hall.
That all changed on Aug. 7,
1840, when a group of Seminole
Indians attacked, killing several
residents and leaving the island a
smoldering ruin.
Ownership changed hands
many times over the decades, with
families using it as a place to camp
and picnic. Occasional develop-
ment plans came and went.
The Labor Day hurricane of
1935 took away the deep-water
access, and the island continued
its fade into obscurity.
Meanwhile, the exotic plants
planted and cared for by former
resident Dr. Henry Perrine grew
out of control, combining with its
native mangrove and buttonwood
fringe to blanket the remains of
the island's streets and buildings.
Then the state bought the
island in the 1970s.
Nezbed has been with the state
park service for 30 years, and she's
been at Indian Key 28 of those
,years. Assistant manager Bob


Photo by DONNA DIETRICH
The 11-acre island is dotted with remains of what was a once a


bustling county seat.
Rose is similarly long tenured.
Nezbed can remember when
they'd walk just 50 feet away
from the dock and run into an
impenetrable wall of vegetation.
There was no bringing heavy
equipment out to clear the island,
with its delicate treasures of Keys
history; clearing it was a hands-
on job. The vegetation gradually
gave way under a daily assault
from machetes and clippers.
The now well-defined paths
were built with sand and gravel
brought .out bucket by bucket.
Everything had to be carried over
on boats, which made nothing
easy.
"Our blood and sweat have
gone into making the island look
the way it does," she says. "It


took 20 years to get the island to
look the way it does now."
The way it looks now is a mix
of native and under-control exot-
ic plants, many of which are
labeled for passersby, and wide
paths complete with street signs.
Walks down those manicure ,
paths take visitors past what"
remains of Indian Key's once-
thriving settlement. Over the
.years, national park service work-
ers have helped stabilize what
remains of the homes and busi-
nesses, mostly stone and brick
foundations and cisterns.
An observation tower offers a
bird's eye view of the island. That
aging structure was rebuilt when
the dock work was being done,
Nezbed says.''' ' -

the run in a 34-24 victory Friday.
Despite two turnovers that
spotted Curley a 12-0 lead in the
opening minutes, the Hurricanes
(1-3) rallied to win their first reg-
ular-season game before the home
crowd at George M. Barley Jr.
Memorial Stadium in Tavemier.
"Our motto all week was to get
out of the trench," senior quarter-
back Chris Rini said. "This feels
amazing."
With the Cane offensive line
giving Rini time to throw, the
three-year starter hit 14 of 23
attempts for 241 yards.
He had one touchdown pass -
48 yards to Jordan Palanco -
among six completions of more

Several long completions set
up running scores by Mark

each scored two rushing touch-
downs.

Football Conchs


try to rebound


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Coming off a better-than-
expected showing in a loss at
Monsignor Pace, the Key West
High School football team will
return to Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium to take on
undefeated Gulliver Prep at 7:30
Friday night.
Last Friday night in Opa-
locka, after Pace's Derick
Hopkins returned the opening
kickoff 98 yards for a touch-
down, Key West coach Jerry
Hughes said to himself on the
sideline, "Oh, hell, here we go
again."
But the Conchs put up a bat-
tle before losing, 23-6, to the
Spartans, who went into the
game as the seventh-ranked 3A
team in the state.
"The kids hung in there,"
Hughes said. "I'm very proud of
that."
Key West, which dropped to
2-2 overall and 0-1 in district,
was hurt by three turnovers,


including an interception in the
end zone and a fumble on a punt
that led to a Pace field goal.
"We didn't have any
offense," Hughes said. "They
had a lot of speed and kept blitz-
ing with eight or nine people
every play. We just couldn't
block them all. Our offense
graded out at 60 percent, that's a
C. When that happens, you don't
have a chance."
With their running game shut
down, the Conchs had to rely on
the passing of quarterback
Stephen Jones, who had seven
completions for more than 70
yards. His 10-yard TD pass to
Carlton Howard with two min-
utes- left in the game enabled
Key West to avoid a shutout.
-"Those kids at Pace are 6A
kids," said Hughes, whose team
now goes up against another
Miami private school that
recruits top players. "Gulliver's
loaded, a nice team, though not
as fast as Pace. We have a
chance, but we'll have to score
[at least] three touchdowns."

it done as a team," said senior
tackle Eric Waite, on the line with
center William Erickson, guards
Dylan Mats and Justin Marshall,
and tackle Travis Sebastian.
After stumbling out of the
blocks, Coral Shores scored three
second-quarter touchdowns to
take the halftime lead, 20-12.
Curley never went away, draw-
ing within 27-24 with 6 minutes
left in the game and was throwing
into the Coral Shores end zone
when time expired.
The Hurricane defense,
anchored by middle linebacker
Courtney Dixon, made several big
stops including all four Curley
attempts on two-point conversion
tries.
Early in the first, Coral Shores
fumbled away its first punt recep-
tion, giving the Knights the ball at
the Cane 42-yard line.
Two stops by tackle Justin
Marshall and a penalty moved
Curley back for a second punt
from the 49, on fourth and 19. A
bad snap rolled along the ground
but the Knight punter took advan-
tage, scooping it up and escaping
for the touchdown.
A fumbled pass reception by
the Canes gave Curley the ball at
midfield moments later, and a 6-
yard touchdown run capped a six-
play drive (helped by two Cane
penalties) for the 12-0 lead barely


seven minutes into the game.
The Canes (1-3) got the
offense moving with an 11-play,
64-yard drive, capped by a 2-yard
Kaile plunge. Key plays included
a 24-yard pass to T.J. Sabalka, an
8-yard screen to Kaile and a 16-
yard run by Tribble.
On its next possession, the
Coral Shores. offense used just
three plays to score when Palanco
wheeled out of the formation and
snagged a pass he turned into a
48-yard scoring drive with 7:09
before halftime.
"We worked on that for three
hours!" Rini exulted on the way to
the sideline.
Coral Shores was ahead, 13-
12, and would not surrender the
lead.
The Hurricanes took just 1:42
off the clock to moved 78 yards on
their next drive. Three straight
passes resulted in a 28-yard catch
by Mike Hampson, 11 by Kaile
and 30 by Ryan Biondoletti.
Sabalka ran for 11 to the Curley 1,
from where Kaile scored on first
down.
William Bassett's point-after
kick (6-of-7 in the game) made it
20-12.
Matt Perry recovered a Curley
fumble before halftime but the
Knights got it right back with an
interception.
Curley back from intermission
with two big plays an intercep-
tion at the Cane 38 and a 38-yard
scoring run on first down. A com-


fortable lead was gone, 20-18, less
than 30 seconds into the half.
Coral Shores held onto the ball
for much of the third a 39-yard
catch by Hampson helped one
drive but didn't score and still
led by a mere two points going
into the fourth.
Then Canes defensive end
Brad Farinelli recovered a Curley
fumble at the Knight 22 on the
first play of the fourth quarter.
Coral Shores went to the
ground, Kaile rushing for 17 yards
on three carries. Tribble blasted in
from the 5.
Curley answered with its best
drive of the night, starting from
the Knight 10 and going 90 yards
in 10 plays. A 39-yard catch set up
a 16-yard touchdown toss, making
it 27-24 with 6:16 left.
Dixon slammed the door on
the Knight conversion try.
The Canes started their last
drive of the night with a 16-yard
pass to Tribble, then went the next
64 yards on seven runs that burned
nearly five minutes off the clock.
Tribble finished it with a 19-
yard rumble to the end zone, clos-
ing as the Canes leading ground
gainer with 62 yards on sevei





Ss


rushes. Kaile and Rini each ran for
35 yards.
Curley got a long kickoff
return only a penalty prevented
a touchdown but the Cane
defense held fast with Patrick
Lofton knocking away a near
scoring toss as time ran down.
"The coaches called out the
offense in practice this week.
They told us we had too many big-
play guys not to be making more


big plays," Rini said. "Tonight, we
made big plays."
Coral Shores travels to Mater
Academy in a 7:30 p.m. Friday
game at Miami's Curtis Park.
Mater is 0-3, having been
outscored 126-6 this season but
is a Class 3A program playing a
formidable schedule. Mater so far
has run into North Broward Prep,
Archbishop Carroll and Edison.

DOLPHINS / From 17

University in the Dolphins open-
ing district game of the season.
"Besides Pahokee, they're the
best team I've coached against
down here," Martin said.
Martin said the Suns ran three
tailbacks and three fullbacks, as
well as a transfer quarterback
who throws and runs well.
University also had two separate
offensive lines, one for normal
downs and another for exclusive-
ly for short yardage situations.
It all added up to a tough night
for the Dolphins, who were out-
gained 379 yards to 131 in the
game. The Suns ran a balanced
attack, Martin said, throwing for


172 yards and rushing for 207.
Quarterback Nyran Ross com-
pleted just five passes for 65
yards, while standout running
back A.J. Freeman was held to 35
yards on 12 carries.
The Suns scored on a three-
yard touchdown run on their first
possession and took an early 8-0
lead after a two-point conversion.
The Dolphins ran just three
plays on their ensuing possession
before a Freeman fumble turned
the ball back over to the Suns.
Six plays later they scored on a
one-yard run aiid took a 15-0
lead.
A 10-play drive capped by a
15-yard scoring run put the
Dolphins behind 22-0 at the half.
"In the second half we made


adjustments and shut them down
for three straight series," Martin
said, "but we ran out of gas."
The Dolphins helped their
defense by eating up the majority
of the third quarter with a 16-
play, 88-yard drive capped by a
Ross one-yard touchdown run.
That score brought the Dolphins
within 22-7.
Two passing touchdowns put
the Dolphins behind 25-7 late in
the fourth quarter, until Freeman
returned a kickoff 75 yards for a
touchdown with just over one
minute remaining in the game.
Up next for the Dolphins is a
homecoming game matchup
Friday against Archbishop
McCarthy at 7:30 p.m.

Keys Fishing


Watch out for those violent summer squalls


,Keeping that
in mind, the
fishing's good

Reef and bay fishing is fairly
good right now. However, late
summer fishing in the Keys is
completely dictated by the
weather.
It determines the ability of
when and where you can go fish-
ing without getting your fanny
kicked. The late summer squalls
that can come up almost any time
are part of the usual weather pat-
terns we have. Some of them can
be extremely violent.
The best bottom fishing now
is along the reef and in the bay at
night. To start with, as a rule,
snapper are night feeders. So it
only makes sense to fish for them
when they are feeding the best.
Yes, they will eat in the daytime,
but are usually much easier to

ally are. You can only see the
reflections and with the larger
ones, the lightning flashing. At
night, it always looks closer.
Between the heat and the
storms that pop up, most anglers
opt for offshore as the fishing
answer in the late summer. But
this time of year, the offshore
fishing is spotty. By that I mean


that there aren't too many consis-
tent areas that fish keep pushing
through. They seem to be more
spread out over various depths.
So this is a good time for a lit-
tle higher speed of a troll to cover
more ground. It keeps production
up, and everyone from falling
asleep.
Working birds rather than
weed lines is a good bet.
Sometimes following a couple of
birds that aren't feeding but just
cruising can be beneficial, as
they are looking for the same
thing you are.
There have been some nice
reports recently of good action in
the 250- to 400-foot range,
which is not too far out, or at
least far enough to cost you a for-
tune to at least give it a shot. If
not successful, it is only a short
trip back to the reef for bottom
fishing.
Another thing enjoyed by
everyone in the daytime now is


snorkeling and diving. Not just
for lobster but even just to enjoy
the sights of the reef. It's one of
the reasons we are here.
The calm days are excellent to
do drift dives, which covers so
much area comfortably. This is
how I have found most of my
best fishing spots over the years.
It's one thing to see an area on a
machine and something else alto-
gether to see it with your own
eyes.
You can find the good ledges
and which side of the area the
fish are hanging out. It is also
good to find that big grouper you
always seek.
Bonefish have made a big
time appearance the past week
throughout the Keys and this
area has had more than its share.
Good reports have been coming
in from anglers as well as guides
all over. With the slight drop in
the water temperature we have
had due to all of the rain, it seems


that was all that it took to bring a
good deal of life back on area
flats.
Nearshore action has been
very good throughout the Keys.
Tarpon remain in the usual
haunts for light-tackle anglers, as
do numerous permit.
And a huge influx of big jack
crevalle has infiltrated Middle
and Lower Keys waters the past
couple of weeks. These make for
good action on any tackle, if you
want them or not. It is always
funny to see an angler talk about
how they do not want to catch
just a jack until one of these big
ones get on and begin to kick the
angler's rear end.
Then it becomes personal,
and entertaining.

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, October 1,200L 23


Closure could be final blow


Keys tournaments


SUTPHIN / From 21

relatively new and trying to make
it have cut bait and run but even
more disturbing are the veterans
of more than 20 years who now
have to reevaluate their lives.
Silver lining: There has been
and always will be a worldwide
draw to the Keys for fishing our
rich waters. With the weak U.S.
dollar, the Tourist Development


Council understands the need to
market the Keys outside of the
U.S. because traveling here is a
bargain.
But will it be enough to sal-
vage what possibly could be the
toughest season to hit Keys cap-
tains in decades? Will the govern-
ment bailout of financial institu-
tions miraculously turn around
the economy so medium-income
families can once again start
spending money on vacations


and fishing trips?
Will the likely lawsuits aimed
at the Fisheries Service by groups
like the Coastal Conservation
Association, Recreational
Fishing Alliance and the National
Association of Charter Boat
Operators force the turnover of
the grouper closure as hap-
pened three years ago for Gulf of
Mexico waters?
No one knows. But time is not
on the anglers' side.


TOURNAMENTS / From 21
