Now that's more like it. Gas at Chevron Island on Summerland Key was down to $3.16 a
gallon on Friday, well below most other stations in the Keys (the Marlin Food Store at mile
marker 88 was at $3.19). Gas in the Keys will likely drop below $3 a gallon in the next few
weeks, as oil closed at a year low on Friday.

Council members from among
eight candidates. It's the first
time in the city's nine years that
candidates are running in
November, not March.
On the ballot are a fisherman,
a physical therapist, a musician, a
landscaper, a retail worker and a
few retirees.
Choosing who will serve for
the next two years are
Marathon's 5,700-plus registered
voters.
Today on pages 8 and 9, meet
the candidates, find out why
they're running and what they'd
do if elected. They talk about
everything from sewer costs to
Marathon's falling tourism.
In the coming weeks, the
Keynoter will feature similar pro-
files of candidates running on the
countywide level.
Marathon voters cast ballots at

McPherson: Diversify


Mayor says
too much rides
on tourism
By SEAN KINNEY.
skinney@keynoter.com

Counting eggs, Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson
warned his city has too many in
one basket tourism.
And, frankly, that has him
worried.
"If you notice, not only in the
city of Key West but across
America right now, tourism is
being challenged," he told his fel-
low city commissioners Tuesday
night.
Citing gas taxes, sales taxes
and the struggle to make rent
every month, McPherson said he
fears there will be fewer visitors
coming to the Keys to spend
money.
"Our eggs are in one basket,
and that basket being tourism.
Our general fund can directly be
affected unless we strategically
look at alternatives," he said.
McPherson said he wants to
pull together a committee of civic
and business leaders to discuss


the economy.
"There's not a whole lot we,
can do, but we can prepare for it
[revenue decrease]," McPherson
said. "The most important thing
for us to do is recognize we're in
the situation."
Key West Realtor Bascom
Grooms, president of the Key
West Chamber of Commerce,
said the market downturn is not
permanent.
"Tourism is going to be our
bread and butter here in Key
West," Grooms said. "We're'still
paradise to the rest of the world.
Things are just tight right now. I
think people are still going to
come visit Key West. They're
going to go on their trips.
Everybody's anxious for it [sea-:
son] because things have been so
slow. I think if there's any sector
holding their own, it's lodging."
Comparing occupancy and
bed tax revenue does not tell the
whole story, said Jessica Bennett,
a researcher at the Monroe
County Tourism Development
Council.
"There's definitely been a
decrease [in tourism revenues].
Sometimes the occupancy is on


par with last year, but the revenue
is down because the rates are
down."
Also, she noted that some
hotels are not doing as well as
others, which impacts the room-
rate averages.
Smith Travel Research con-
tracts with the TDC to analyze
and compile trends in the tourism
industry.
According to the most recent
numbers available, in August
2008, Key West hotels had an
average occupancy rate of 67.2
percent, down 3.4 percent from
last year's 69.6 percent.
The average daily price of a
hotel room in August 2008 was
$155.86. That's down 1.6 percent
from last year's August average
of $158.42.
While those figures are not as
dramatic as the mayor's warning,
market conditions since August
have significantly worsened
globally.
Former Key West Mayor
Jimmy Weekley said that any
economic change needs to start at
home.
McPherson, who defeated
Weekley twice in campaigns for
mayor, said, "I'm working now to
bring some individuals together."

'Big week' for


grouper rule


Commerce chief,
fishermen set
conference call
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.com

Top federal officials will hear
from fishermen working to over-
turn a pending four-month clo-
sure on Atlantic Ocean grouper
fishing in meetings this week.
The southeastern regional
manager for the National Marine
Fisheries Service is scheduled to
speak with about a dozen fisher-
men in a private Wednesday
meeting in Islamorada.
Then on Friday, U.S.
Secretary of Commerce Carlos
Gutierrez holds a conference call
with U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen and fishermen to listen
to their concerns.
"We will ask them to amend
the decision that [the federal
South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council] made on
grouper, and change it to affect
only gag grouper," Islamorada
charter captain Bill Kelly said.
"This is a pretty big week."
A total ban on harvesting three
types of grouper gag, black
and red in federal Atlantic
waters from Key West to North
Carolina will go into effect Jan. 1
through April unless Gutierrez
orders a change.
"They're going to put people
out of business first and wait for
the science later," Key West char-
ter captain Andy Griffiths said.
"We want them to wait for the
science."
Studies show the gag grouper
population is overfished, but
opponents contend reports used
as the basis for adding black and
red grouper to the closure do.not
meet required standards.
Gag grouper is a temperate
fish not often caught in the Keys,
but black and grouper are hugely
popular food fish sought by local
anglers and commercial fisher-
men.
Chambers of commerce in
Key West, Marathon and
Islamorada have written letters in
support of removig, black and'
red grouper from the closure,:
which occurs during the peak of


the Keys tourism season.
"A once vibrant and vital
[sportfishing] industry in our
town is suffering," Key West
Chamber of Commerce President
Bascom Grooms wrote.
"The decision and timing of
this ban could not come at a more
inopportune time," Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Daniel Samess wrote on behalf of
his board.
On Tuesday, the Key West
City Commission unanimously
approved a resolution calling on
the Commerce Secretary to
"override" the South Atlantic
Council's decision.
Passage is expected when a


'They're
going to put
people out
of business
first and
wait for the
science
later.'
Andy Griffiths, charter captain


similar resolution reaches the
Islamorada Village Council on
Thursday, Kelly said:
Similar resolutions are being
prepared for submission to the
Monroe County Commission,
Key Colony Beach City Council
and Marathon City Council.
"I'm going to tell [Secretary
Gutierrez] that how ever many
letters they've received so far,
expect double that at least,"
Griffiths said. "People are just
now finding out and writing."
Roy Crabtree, the regional
National Marine Fisheries
Service director, agreed to meet
privately with fishermen
Wednesday. As a voting member
of the South Atlantic Council,
: Crabtree vqted for the closure.
,, We.1l qrakLp oui case ak hear
what he has to say," Kelly said.

aren't true because they reflect
back on a wife that is a part of
me, and I have six kids and
they're crying, and it hurts me,"
he told the Keynoter Friday.
He was referring to an Oct. 1
federal jury ruling that the county
allowed a hostile work environ-
ment because McCoy told stories
about his past sexual exploits.
The jury awarded his former aide,
Celeste Bruno, $48,400.
"You make a little enemy here
and you make a little enemy
there, and it hurts, the situation
now," McCoy said. "In fact, the
charges aren't even against me.
It's against the county for not pro-
tecting her."
The verdict has many ques-
tioning whether the new Key
West International Airport termi-
nal should be named after McCoy
and his late wife Merili, as
planned. A plaque calling it the
McCoy Terminal Complex has
already been made.
It says, "This terminal is dedi-
cated to Sonny and Merili
McCoy for the commitment they
made in making this complex a
reality."
"Me, fine, they can take my
name off of it," he said. "But why
hurt Merili, why hurt my kids? ...
All I want is a legacy for my kids
and dead wife."
While he's consumed with the
jury's verdict and the controversy
over the terminal's name, McCoy
did take time to talk about his 18
years in public office his
County Commission time plus
his 10 years as Key West mayor,
from 1971 to 1981.

Cindy Gay, owner of the
Summerland Key Chevron, said
she was able to take the price
down after she get a tanker load
on Wednesday from her suppli-
er, McKenzie Petroleum.
"My goal is to be the first one
to get under $3," she told the
Keynoter, though cautioning that
her ability to do that would
depend on the market.

McCOY through the

and getting the county moving on
installing sewers.
After he left office in 1981, he
was out of politics until 2000,
when he was elected to the
County Commission. He said it
was his wife's idea for him to run
so he could help get the new ter-
minal built.
While mayor, "I had won
many awards and I was asked if I
could do for the county what I did
for the city. Merili wanted me to
run; she was very strong about
that, so I did."
In the 2000 election, the
Republican defeated Democrat
Sheila Chamberlain and nonaffil-
iated Jerry Coleman.
He says he's happy with
progress on the $31.6 million ter-
minal. As for installing sewers,
"With the state money commit-
ment, we're probably in good
shape. Most everyone is on the
same page there, so we're mak-
ing some headway there."
As for Spehar, she took office
the same year after running as a
Republican and defeating the
commissioner for whom she

under $3 a gallon for gas in the
next few weeks.
The last time gas was selling
for $3.16 a gallon in the Keys
was in February. It hasn't been
under $3 a gallon since 2007.
Gas prices escalated through
the spring, peaking in July at
more than $4.30 a gallon in Key
West. They've been going back
down ever since.
On Friday, gas was selling for
up to $3.69 a gallon in Key
West, and up to $3.65 in

as those the county cannot dis-

gay people.
"It's just sad the goals I have
set we have not been able to
achieve. I guess that happens in
every office," Spehar said.
That includes a new Stock
Island firehouse. So she plans to
continue attending commission
meetings as a private person to
lobby for one.
"I am going to become the
Lower Keys version of people
who often come before the com-
mission, keep their feet to the
fire," she said. "We must have
that fire station.

Spehar now needs a job. She.

Keys Opinion


Lower gas prices

may help recovery

It was hard to find any glimmer of hope in the economic
news Friday.
But we do take some solace in oil prices heading down.
Speculators took a lot of the blame earlier this year for
the rapid run-up in oil prices, especially when the price of
crude topped $140 a barrel.
Something about $4-a-gallon gasoline in this country
finally ignited the notion that energy conservation is no
longer just a feel-good movement.
One Lower Keys gas station owner vows to be the first
in the Keys to post prices below $3 a gallon. And that
would certainly be welcome news for many Lower Keys
commuters.
If gas prices stay down, that will help tourism, which is
vital for our economic recovery.
And while we may cheer dropping prices at the pump,
that's also a signal of a weakening global economy.
Demand for oil continues to fall. That wrings some spec-
ulative pressure out of the system. But there is still the cost
of finding, recovering and processing oil before it reaches
the pump. And those costs are not likely to drop as much
as the Dow Jones has in the past few weeks.
Ironically, that decline in stock values may have spurred
some investors to eye real estate as a haven. That happened
earlier this decade when the stock market nosedived. Some
money that fled stocks wound up in real estate. Too much
money, it turns out, which fueled too much speculation.
Enter greed and another bubble burst.
In Keys Sunday, we reported a 34 percent increase in
September real estate closings compared to the same peri-
od last year. With prices down, buyers are starting to
return. If that trend continues, it will help us out of the hole
we've dug,
Consider for a moment this comparison. On Friday, the
stock price for General Motors shares fell to a level not
seen since 1950. Even in the worst-hit real estate markets,
does anyone think they'll ever see home prices back at
1950 levels?
The answer is clearly no.
If gas prices can stabilize, if real estate begins to move,
if we can lure domestic travelers to the Keys this season
- maybe, just maybe, we can see the Keys economy rid-
ing out this storm.
That's a lot of ifs, but far better than just focusing on
doom and gloom.

Letting theater serve alcohol is a bad idea


EDITOR:
I would like to make a few comments
about the Tavernier Towne Cinema's interest
in obtaining a liquor license.
The theater is one of the few places to
drop off your children without the worry of
alcohol. The Upper Keys are having a hard
time with the teenagers and their underage
drinking and unsupervised parties. It is such
a problem that the Coral Shores High School
Advisory Council had a special meeting on
Sept. 30 to discuss just these issues.
The Nekhailas, the owners of the theater,
are quoted as saying that "it seems a lot of
customers bring it in anyway." Well, I have
lived here 20 years and have never seen
alcohol in the theater, and why would they
allow it? You can't even bring in your own
candy.
Also, they said, "Most of our customers
are on vacation anyway and this is some-
thing I think they will enjoy." Don't you
think that there are enough places to drink


already in the Keys?
They say that they would be adamant
about proving age. OK, then what about
what happens in the darkened theater?
Teenagers are very resourceful; putting the
apple in front of them I believe is a big mis-
take.
Yes, the Marathon and Key West cinemas
may serve alcohol, but the atmosphere is
very different in both of those operations.
Movie going should be a family activity,
not a drinking affair. I do not approve of
putting alcohol in the theater. There does not
need to be another venue for people to get
on the roads with alcohol in their blood.
If you agree, please contact the Monroe
County Commission and voice your opinion.
Peggie Fabel
Tavernier

Editor's note: The county Planning
Commission gave approval Oct. 8 to let the
theater serve beer and wine.


Publish only informed opinions


EDITOR:
For the love of God or whatever deity
you believe in, when will you quit publish-
ing letters from idiots?
I refer to the letter regarding lobsters
"trapped" in lobster traps. These devices are
more temporary lobster shelters rather than
traps. As anyone with a modicum of educa-

KAIR lives up to its name
EDITOR:
I work at Marathon High School as the
employment specialist. I was assisting a stu-
dent who is now living on her own to get
employment that will help toward her goal
to graduate as well as be able to be self-suf-
ficient.
She had mentioned to me that her only
mode of transportation, a bike, had been
stolen and she now has to walk anywhere
she goes as well as to her new job. I placed
a telephone call to Keys Area
Interdenominational Resources (KAIR) and
spoke to Marge Roberts.
Marge did not hesitate to offer this young
lady help in any way she could, from pro-
viding food if she needed it to getting her
another bike for transportation. I would like
to thank Marge Roberts and the KAIR
organization for their generosity and will-
ingness to help us out with getting trans-
portation for our student.
KAIR provided our student a new bike
and a bike lock. This has defiantly helped
her to be able to get to work in a timely
fashion daily. KAIR is a wonderful organi-
zation that does what it says; it cares for the
community and its residents. Thank you for
all their help.

"Marathon' '


tion knows, the lobster enter and leave the
traps at will. They simply use them as
handy protection from predators during the
daytime and then leave at night to continue
their migration to the safety of deep water
during the stormy hurricane season and win-
ter months.
I realize that there are a lot of unin-
formed people in the world. Wouldn't it be
better, to publish an article every year about
lobster traps informing people of their actu-
al function rather than publishing their let-
ters, letters that only serve to show how lit-
tle they know about lobster fishing?
I would really much rather read letters
from.an informed public rather than the
dolts that you publish year after year after
year who think that lobsters remain trapped
to die a horribly long slow death in aban-
doned traps.

DUI stop leads to


huge drug arrest


Dougherty
charged with
149 felonies
Keynoter Staff


A drunk-driving arrest back
in June led to the Wednesday
arrest of a Key Wester on 149
felony drug and fraud charges.
Richard Dougherty, 38,
listed on the Mdnroe County
Sheriff's Office Web site as a
computer engineer, is charged
with 58 counts of fraud; 31
counts of using another per-
son's identity without consent,
which is identity theft; anoth-
er 31 counts of obtaining a
controlled substance by for-
gery; and 29' counts of traf-
ficking in a controlled sub-
stance.
According to Key West
police, Dougherty was arrest-
ed for drunk driving on June
11 and, during the traffic stop,
Officer Kevin O'Connell
found two bogus prescrip-
tions, so he was also charged
with possession of forged pre-
scriptions.
At the time, he admitted "to
creating, printing, signing and
purchasing" prescriptions for
Percocet, Roxicodone, Xanax
and other drugs using the


S name of Dr.
John Norris
III and Drug
Enforcement
Admin-
S istration and
m medical
g? license num-
bers without
DOUGHERTY Norris' per-
mission. He
used a laptop computer to pro-
duce the fake forms, police
say.
Subsequent investigation
found that the purchases went
back as far as October 2007
and continued throughout July
of this year. Stores where he's
accused of using the forged
prescriptions are Publix, Sav-
On Pharmacy, the Dennis
Pharmacy and Walgreens.
Dougherty would write the
prescriptions for not only him-
self but "for other individuals
and received part of the con-
trolled substance as payment
for creating and forging the
prescriptions," Detective
Richard Thomas wrote in his
arrest affidavit.
Overall, he bought 342
grams of drugs with the fake
prescriptions, Thomas wrote.
Bond was set at $104,500.

Man says 3 others
set him on fire

A Big Coppitt Key man
who says someone lit him on
fire early Friday morning was
airlifted to the Ryder Trauma
Center in Miami for treatment
of burns on his chest and
stomach.
However, authorities could
find no evidence of a fire.
Deputy Becky Herrin from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office said Deputy John
McGee responded to Venus
Lane on Big Coppitt at 12:30
a.m. When he arrived, the 37-
year-old man was already
being treated by paramedics
from Monroe County Fire


Rescue. According to reports,
the victim was noticeably
drunk as he.told the deputy
three men he didn't know had
doused him with accelerant
and lit him on fire.
Herrin said he couldn't say
why they would have done it
to him and couldn't identify
his attackers. She said he
reported sitting on his back
deck when it happened. He
said he pulled his burning
shirt off and rolled on the
ground to douse the flames.
An examination of the
scene turned up no evidence
of a fire, Herrin said. The shirt
wasn't found, there were no
remnants of an accelerant and
no neighbors heard or saw
anything.

Bartus is a two-time mayor and three-time vice mayor
S/ who served three consecutive terms, from 2000 through
2006. He said he's running.this time because he wants to
BARTUS help secure the future of the city.
"This election is about where we're going as a commu-
nity and how we're going to get there," Bartus said, citing economic uncer-
tainty and a downturn in tourism.
"We need people that will work with the local businesses and position
ourselves to grow as a community."
Bartus said a key issue is beautification and marketing the city to be a
more attractive tourist destination.
"I think the beautification of the city gives people a reason to stay a little
longer," he said, adding the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce
should consider. marketing independent from the county Tourist
Development Council and more specific to the city.
As chamber president, Bartus is working with businesses to establish
vacation packages during which visitors would receive discounted rates at
certain hotels, restaurants and attractions. Bartus also said he will bring sig-
nificant experience to the council in dealing with sewer construction.
"One thing I bring to the table is a lot of real-world lobbying experience
in Tallahassee," he said. "I plan on being a pest and an annoyance to peo-
ple in Washington until they send down the money they promised us."
Bartus also said he is adamant the city have quality emergency servic-
es. He said the city should work with Monroe County and Islamorada to
maximize service from Marathon north through the village.

+ Age: 55.
Occupation: Retiied troubleshooter for Delta

SIn the Keys: Five years on a permanent basis,
property handler in Marathon since 1978.
Family: Divorced, three children.
SPedersen is one of two political newcomers run-
ning for City Council (the other is Ginger Snead) and
PEDERSEN believes.that is part of his appeal..
"One thing about me, I have not taken one nickel
or dime from anybody for my campaign. That's why you don't see
too many signs," he said.
Pedersen said his management background would help him
make a difference on a council he feels spends too much time talk-
ing and not enough on making decisions.
"My feeling is there's too much difference of opinion. They don't
seem to work on an issue; they seem to fight one another," he said.
Pedersen said he believes the.city's sound financial standing is
misleading because essential projects aren't being completed. He
cited recent complaints to the council about flooding problems at
Sombrero Country Club and in the Flamingo Isle area.
Another of Pedersen's main issues is the way Marathon is market-
ed to tourists. He said the city has a lot to offer and that it isn't taking.
advantage of the Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
"Everything is marketed toward Key West. Why not Marathon?" he
asked. "Marathon has a better piece of real estate to fly into" than
Key West International Airport.

"Bicycle" Joanie Nelson
Age: 67.
+ Occupation: In-store food demonstrator.
In the Keys: 38 years.
Family: Divorced, two sons, six grandchildren.
A familiar candidate on election ballots throughout
S Monroe County over the years, Nelson says her main issue
is putting a stop to the city's sewer construction.
"I have been persistent and consistent about the
NELSON squeezing out of the heart of the little people," Nelson said.
"But the last straw is this unfunded sewage mandate com-
ing right down U.S. 1 that I believe will eliminate some of the last endan-
gered affordable housing."
Nelson said the council has neglected to stand up to state and federal
officials in the face of a mandate to complete sewering the city by July 1,
2010. She says lower-income residents, such as herself, can't afford the costs.
Another main issue for Nelson is the city's fire department. She feels out-
side union employees should work together better with local volunteers.
"Our community was built up by a lot of local volunteers and it's not such
a good thing that our firefighters should be taken over by outside union
people," she said."I'm not against them, but the locals need their fair share."
Nelson also criticized present and previous councils for approving a
wave of high-end development agreements.
"They have let in Cay Clubs and Marlin Bay, who swept away their friends
because they were in it for the short term," Nelson said.
Cay Clubs, which managed several Marathon properties, went belly up
last year and is no longer a player in the Keys. The Marlin Bay Yacht Club
on Louisa Street was slated to be an 84-home waterfront community with
homes ranging from $1.6 million to $4 million. This past May, the developer
abandoned it after just 13 homes were built. None were sold and they sit
empty.

Dick Ramsay
/ Age: 67.
-- Occupation: Retired, owned Surfside Citgo in
Marathon for 28 years.
In the Keys: 35 years.
Family: Married, three children.
Ramsay said he's running for City Council despite his
wife's objections because many residents reached out
to him and said he could help the city.'
RAMSAY "They knew my background and my business back-
ground and I guess their general feeling is the city needs
me in these tough economic times," he said. Ramsay ran once before, in
the city's first council election in 2000, and lost.
Ramsay said that although the city appears to be in sound financial
shape, that could change in a hurry.
"I'm pleased we have reserves, but my feeling is in an heartbeat we
could be in bad shape. We have local businesses hurting so bad, we don't
know if they'll survive," he said.
Ramsay has called for a "lateral summit" involving all contractors inter-
ested in installing lateral pipes from the central sewer pipes to homes and
businesses. He said the city could save residents 40 to 60 percent by bulk-
purchasing materials.
As for the lack of tourism in the Middle Keys, Ramsay said it's crucial the
city work with business owners rather than play the part of adversary.
"I have seen the council approach people such as the Spottswoods," he
said, referring to Spottswood Companies Inc., which owns Faro Blanco
Marine Resort, which has been closed for several years but is planned for
redevelopment.
"We start talking about how much money are (they) going to give us to
do this project. My approach is to go to these people doing things good for
Marathon and say,'How can we help you?'"

Election 2008


Ginger Snead
Age: 46.
+ Occupation: Physical therapist, owner of Advantage
Rehab & Fitness.
+ In the Keys: 15 years.
Family: Divorced, two children and one grandchild.
Like Allen Pederson, Snead is new to Marathon's politi-
cal arena and says she's running because the city needs
a more defined vision for its future.
SNEAD "I run a business and before I make a budget, I make
plans. If you have no idea what you need to do in five
years, you're just sitting stagnant," she said. "I think some of the decisions
they make are short-sighted."
Snead said one of her main issues is spending not cutting it, but doing
it more responsibly. Snead said governments often budget the same
amount for items each year and find ways to spend the money.
"What I think we need to do is look at our budget in a different way. You
may find areas you can cut and areas where you need more service," she
said.
Snead also said while there's something to be said for government expe-
rience on the City Council, it would benefit the city to hear new ideas.
"There's something to be said for fresh eyes not doing the same old," she
said.
Snead says she would emphasize securing funding for lateral sewer
hookups for residents.
As far as Marathon's struggling economy and lack of tourists, Snead says
the city's greatest assets attractions like the Dolphin Research Center,
Turtle Hospital and Sombrero Beach are not being properly marketed.
"When I moved here, the reason I stayed is we had a motto and that was
we were a family-friendly town, and we are," she said. "We're the only island
that has everything you can need for a family."

Sness Twin Cities Landscape Corp.

SLongtime Keys resident Woodland has served on
just about every board and committee the city has to
WOODLAND offer.
He's been on the Code Compliance Board, Land
Acquisition Advisory Board, Parks and Recreation Board and the
Beautification Committee at various points. It's that involvement and
familiarity with the community he's also been on the campaign
trail before in previous council races that he feels make him a
quality candidate for the City Council.
Woodland said he's a proponent of seeing a city pool built and
that he's working with the Monroe County School Board to get it done
at the board's Marathon Manor property adjacent to Marathon High
School. Schools Superintendent Randy Acevedo confirmed the talks.
"I think the people need something to do," Woodland said.
More things to do would also help increase tourism, Woodland
said
"We are the friendly island of Marathon, that's what I believe," he
said. "I'd really like to see us do some enhancement on U.S. 1
because when.people drive through, theydon't see anything."
Woodland also said he's concerned costs associated with the
city's sewer construction are going to overwhelm many residents.
"I just think it's going to move a lot of people out of here," he said.
"I don't think we should be putting this burden on people."


TEMPEST


Saturday, October 11, 2008


Marilyn Tempest
Age: 71.
Occupation: Retired systems analyst for the
Department of Defense.
In the Keys: 12 years.
Family: Married, two children, two grandchildren.
Like fellow incumbent Pete Worthington, Tempest said
she's seeking re-election to continue what she feels is
progress made by the City Council in recent years.
Tempest said she has a passion for civics rather than
politics and enjoys working with the residents of


Marathon.
"I like participating in the fabric of the city," she said. "I've learned to
pay attention to the residents; often they get it right."
Tempest said she's proud the city has been able to keep spending in
check and exceed the rollback tax rate with the city budget each of the
past two years. She said her concern for the future is maintaining that
when the economy turns around.
"We have to be cautious and conserve our conservative attitude. Until
wastewater is done and the roads behind them, no infrastructure,"
Tempest said, citing a City Hall and a pool as examples of projects the city
can't afford to do at this time.
Tempest said the city's made great strides in beginning its sewer con-
struction and favors seeing it through.
"I do think we have pretty much most of the citizens thinking we should
go forward and I wouldn't want anything to interfere with that," she said,
noting her experience would lend itself well to-lobbying for state and fed-
eral funds to support the project.
Tempest also said that if re-elected, she'd focus on preserving afford-
able housing and working toward a more user-friendly City Hall with the
Building Department coming in house.

Ryan McCarthy



Pete Worthington
Age: 52.
Occupation: Commercial fisherman, charter
captain and licensed boat dealer.
In the Keys: 35 years, 1974 Marathon High School
graduate.
SFamily: Married, two children.
Worthington, the city mayor, says he's seeking re-
election so he can see several projects through.
WORTHINGTON Worthington said it's important to find out where
candidates stand on sewers, a project he's been
adamant about completing.
"I'm making a stand that I'd like to see the commitment that we
get that project done and get it behind us," he said.
Worthington said he's been pleased with the city's fiscal responsi-
bility and wants that to continue in these tough economic times. But
he also said he's in favor of spending taxpayer money when need-
ed, such as the $400,000 increase in the Marathon Fire Rescue budg-
et for this year.
"One of the key things is the city has been very responsible with
the taxpayers' dollars and we're not seeing a decline in services as
we've declined taxes," he said.
An example of irresponsible spending, Worthington says, would be
spending upward of $10 million to fix the Boot Key Bridge, which was
closed last year when it was found to be unsafe. He says the span
should be abandoned and the island of Boot Key the bridge is the
only land-based access to it bought by the state for conservation.
Worthington also said the city needs experienced leaders familiar
with the issues. "I don't think this is a time for on-the-job training," he
said.

Hero is unlikely celebrity


Saving dog
from shark
wins hearts
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Last week, Islamorada carpen-
ter Greg LeNoir and his best
friend Jake toured New York City





a m


like celebrities.
There were chauffeured
around in Mercedes-Benz limou-
sines, met with news anchor Katie
Couric and morning-show host
Harry Smith, and visited Central
Park and other landmarks.
They even stayed at. the opu-
lent Le Parker Meridien hotel in
downtown Manhattan, but they
found little rest. The trauma was
still too fresh in their minds.
"I. was having nightmares.
Jake was having nightmares. He
would wake up and be crying,"
LeNoir said. "I'd see him getting
snatched down.
"They weren't seconds," "he


continued. "They were less than
seconds those moments when
your leg shakes harder than you
thought your leg could shake."
Those moments occurred two
weeks ago when LeNoir watched
Jake, his beloved 14-pound rat
terrier, get pulled under the water
by a lemon shark during the dog's
daily swim off a bayside dock.
LeNoir jumped in, punching
the shark like a battering ram and
freeing Jake from its jaws. Jake
suffered lacerations across his
abdomen and legs, but is recover-
ing.
It didn't take long for the story
of LeNoir's heroism to spread,
and soon pictures of him and Jake
were in newspapers from Miami

with Jake in New York City.
to New Zealand and on dozens of
television stations and national
and international news Web sites.
That story was why LeNoir
and Jake were in New York,
recounting the ordeal on "The
Early Show" and "Inside Edition."
It's also why LeNoir could
soon land endorsement deals with
Purina and other pet companies.
A somewhat private man,
LeNoir said he was angry when
his story was first leaked to The
Miami Herald. But he is now
beginning to understand why his
actions have struck a chord with
so many, who feel they couldn't
have done what he did.
"I realized it's not at all com-
mon for someone to take on a
task like that," LeNoir said.
"There have been a number of
negative comments made regard-
ing my judgment. All I can do is
agree with them.
"I didn't do this in the spur of
the moment," he added. "A horri-
ble feeling of dread came over
me. I definitely gave it a second
thought before I jumped in."
That dread came back a few
days later, as he showed a South
Florida television crew the scene
of the attack, a pier near the
World Wide Sportsman on Upper
Matecumbe Key.
He noticed a fisherman throw-
ing cut bait and fish into the
water. He then noticed sharks
start to appear. A 3-footer. A 4-
footer. A 5-footer.
Then he saw it a 7-foot
lemon shark with a noticeable
scratch down its head. "I recog-
nized the head immediately. It
actually made me almost ill to
see it.
"These big butchers are out
there," he said. "Jake is unfortu-


nate his owner didn't appreciate
that."
LeNoir chalks up his mistake
of letting the dog swim to naivety.
He moved from Los Angeles to
Upper Matecumbe Key six years
ago with his wife, Tessalee. They
adopted Jake from an animal
shelter about a year ago.
"He was like a Super Ball. A
spring out of a can," LeNoir said
of Jake's boundless energy. The
dog quickly fell in love with the
water, sometimes diving under to
grab jellyfish and sponges.
But now, LeNoir said, Jake
shakes when he gets near water.
Even in Central Park, Jake
uncharacteristically ignored a
flock of ducks on the lake. He just
stood at the bank and turned his
head back to look at LeNoir, to
make sure his rescuer was there.
Jake still returns to the veteri-
narian nearly every other day,
LeNoir said, and is administered
painkillers and antibiotics daily.
His belly is lined with stitches and
puncture marks, and a bandage
covers a gash on his front left leg.
"We haven't seen him run and
jump, which is his thing, and we
haven't-seen him swim," LeNoir
said. "I can tell he's still scared.
But I have some confidence he
will take that plunge."
As Jake's health improves, so
does LeNoir's comfort in telling
his story. He hopes sharing it
through product endorsements
will help defray Jake's medical
costs, which are climbing into the
thousands of dollars.
"I learned that you must never
take the ocean for granted,"
LeNoir said. "And I learned that
an act of kindness expressed
toward an animal endears you to
the world so quickly."

Snapper Ledge


could be protected


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


An online petition to give
Snapper Ledge off Tavernier the
highest level of Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary pro-
tection drew 2,033 virtual signa-
tures as of Friday.
On Oct. 21, advocates will
take their case for making
Snapper Ledge a new protected
area before the Sanctuary
Advisory Council at a meeting
in Ocean Reef.
"[Sanctuary Superintendent]
Dave Score is exploring options
with headquarters as to appro-
priate action," advisory council
Chairman Bruce Popham wrote
to board members this week.
Key Largo underwater pho-
tographer Stephen Frink
launched the campaign, saying
reef life at the 25-foot-deep spot
has been diminished by
spearfisherman.
Frink's photo of a dead nurse
shark killed by a spear has
received national attention.
Most of the best-known coral
reefs in the Keys are covered by
designation as Sanctuary
Preservation Areas,- which
allows visitation but bans fish-
ing, spearfishing and collection.
Currently the'sanctuary has
18 SPAs, which protect relative-
ly small areas at sites like
Molasses Reef or Sombrero
Reef. There also are two
Ecological Reserves, which pro-
tect larger ecosystem areas in the
Dry Tortugas and in the Lower
Keys. :, .
SnIapl~'c' Ledge,' i. .i .,pique-


and popular scuba-diving site
that is well known international-
ly for its'diverse and dense con-
centration of marine creatures,"
the petition reads.
"Unfortunately, the area is being
depleted and destroyed by fish-
erman who kill fish for food,
sport and pleasure using both
spears and hooks."
Frink says the area provides
an excellent shallow-water area
for new divers and photogra-
phers, but visitors have been
appalled to see the bottom lit-
tered with fish carcasses slain
for no apparent reason.
"There are plenty of other
places to spear fish off Tavernier
and Islamorada, and to decimate
the fish populations at Snapper
Ledge is both shortsighted and
barbaric," the petition says.
The Sanctuary Advisory
Council a volunteer group,
that makes recommendations to
sanctuary managers holds its
regular meeting at 9 a.m. Oct. 21
at the Ocean Reef Club Cultural
Center.
Access to Ocean Reef, a pri-
vate community, will be permit-
ted for people who want to
attend the open meeting. A pub-
lic comment period is scheduled
for 10:20 a.m., and the Snapper
Reef item is tentatively set for
11:45 a.m.
Other items on the agenda
include updates of sanctuary
projects. Members also will dis-
cuss recent actions by federal
fishery management councils,

suit over rights
The Islamorada Village
Council faces a lawsuit challeng-
ing denial of transferable devel-
opment rights.
Owners of the planned Tarpon
Point development on Lower
Matecumbe Key recently
appealed a decision by Village
Planning Director Ed Koconis to
require planting of native vegeta-
tion where development rights
are being moved away.
The Village Council agreed,
with Koconis and denied the


appeal.
A lawsuit, filed by the corpora-
tion ETC XII LLC, claims
Koconis and the council refused to
consider the entire ordinance and
adopted a construction that is at
odds with the plain meaning of the
ordinance when read as a whole.
Transferable development
rights allow property owners to
essentially move allowed build-
ing density from one property to
Another.
As an example, a developer
could build two housing units on
a site that allows one unit by
Reducing an equal amount of den-
sity on another site.

Village awash


in lawsuit


Rental law,
sewer fees
are challenged
By DAVID BALL


The village of Islamoiada has
become a popular target for law-
suits, with four filed against the
village in Monroe County
Circuit Court during a seven-day
span.
Two of the lawsuits oppose
the village's recently adopted
sewer-system assessments and
one contests the village's vaca-
tion rental policies.
"Litigation [against the vil-
lage] ebbs and flows," Mayor
Cathi Hill said. "I think 1 went
six months without being served
[court documents]. Now, it's to
the point where the guy who
serves me recognizes my car,
and I recognize his."
Hill wouldn't comment on
specific allegations, but said she
was bothered by litigation over
the vacation rental ordinance.
"Where were these people
during the process?" Hill said.
"The ordinance reflects negotia-
tions that took place over a
three-year period. And part of
that process was an extensive
amount of public input."
Village Manager Ken Fields
said he is confident village attor-
neys will be able to litigate these
and any future suits within the
village's $607,000 legal budget.
He said he's also confident in the
village's ability to win the cases.
"Vacation rental has been liti-
gated in the past, and there is a
huge amount of case law on non-
ad valorem assessments," Fields
said. "So I'm confident the vil-
lage will prevail."

Paying for sewers
This. year, the council
approved a $631 assessment on
every residential and commer-
cial parcel in order to generate
$2.5 million for planning and
designing its sewage treatment
utility.
The village says it will deduct
the assessment from each prop-
erty owner's final sewer connec-
tion charges, which will depend
on a property's wastewater flow


I0.,,,mr R A


and the number of connection
points.
But in a single lawsuit, five
separate corporations operating
at Cheeca Lodge and on
behalf of dozens of individual
Cheeca condo-hotel unit owners
- claim they don't benefit from
the assessment because they
have on-site wastewater treat-
ment.
Cheeca's cost to upgrade its
plant to meet state standards will
be less-than $500,000, while it
could cost up to $4 million to
connect 150 condo units to a vil-
lage sewage system, the suit
claims.
The lawsuit also claims the
assessment doesn't fairly differ-
entiate between properties, so an
owner of a mobile home will pay
the same as an owner of a multi-
unit hotel.
A second lawsuit, filed by
Marathon attorney Bob Miller
on behalf of Islamorada resi-
dents Arthur Gasser, Richard
Greenfield and William Parker,
alleges similar unfairness.

Rental rejections
In 2006, the council passed a
limit on the number of vacation
rentals, which are residences
rented for fewer than 28 days, to
331.
Village officials say the vaca-
tion rental ordinance also bans
new vacation rentals in "residen-
tial medium" zones, which is
typical of single-family home
neighborhoods. Vacation rentals
in existence since December
2001 are being allowed.
After negotiations with the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs, the vacation
rental ordinance took effect in
2007. A process to license the
rentals began this summer.
Attorney Andrew Tobin, rep-
resenting 26 unnamed owners of
property zoned residential medi-
um, sued claiming the licensing
requirements are "unreasonable,
arbitrary and discriminatory."
A lawsuit filed three weeks
earlier makes similar claims on
behalf of another group of prop-
erty owners who were denied
vacation rental licenses
for homes zoned residential
medium.

some concerns
about oversight
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Step one for building an
assisted living center in Key West
passed the City Commission this
week but not without ques-
tions and cautions.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
said Key West voters approved a
ballot question last year by a two-
thirds majority, adding, "That's a
pretty good mandate. I think it
was crystal clear."
But Commissioner Teri
Johnston, who ultimately voted
against a city lease for the project,
raised concerns about the city's
oversight role. "My issue is that I
feel that the citizens that voted


are relying on us," she said.
The Florida Keys Assisted
Living Care Coalition's plans call
for 135 mixed-income units on a
3.7-acre parcel at the Truman
Waterfront. The city is giving the
coalition a 99-year lease for the
land.
Forty units will be reserved
for people who require -assisted
care and the other 95 will be inde-
pendent living units. Sizes will
range from between 400 square
feet for an assisted-living unit up
to 1,200 square feet for a two-
bedroom, two-bath independent-
living unit.
Prices for the larger units will
range from $200,00 to $1.5 mil-
lion and the smaller units will be
available monthly from $1,000 to
$4,900. The projected cost of the
entire facility is $50 million.

Henriquez lobbied for the go-
ahead: "Without the availability
of this land, the project is not
viable," he told the commission.
Henriquez went on to explain,
that the project would be a big
contributor to economic stability
in Key West by creating construc-
tion jobs and, subsequently,
health care and maintenance
positions.
"Look at this as a business.
You will see an everOescalating
amount of money circulating in
our community," he said.
And he talked about the
impact on seniors.
"Without such a facility, the
majority of seniors will leave the
community. These senior citizens
deserve to live out their life in a
comfortable and supportive envi-
ronment. Let's go out and get the
job done for the senior citizens of
this community."
Ed Swift, coalition co-chair-
man, also asked for support. "The
goal of this project is to create a
resource for our community that
is not here today. There are
always other ideas, but we have
the community engaged. We
want senior housing, but we want



<'II.1. Strigh talk ab
croe teth


affordable senior housing."
The county-owned Bayshore
Manor on Stock Island is the only
assisted-care facility in the Lower
Keys. Bayshore can accommodate
16 people. Trish Barker,
Bayshore's senior administrator,
said all of the beds are filled and
"there is a waiting list because our
facility is full. But right now, there
is no one on the waiting list."
,Despite an empty waiting list,
Barker. said there are normally
several names on the list and she
receives weekly inquiries.
Residents at Bayshore can pay pri-
vately or receive a subsidy from
Monroe County. The going rate at
Bayshore is $3,329 per month.
"There's definitely a need for
assisted-living for the elderly,"
Barker said.
"We are now where the people
told us to be," Commissioner
Clayton Lopez said.
Johnston raised concerns,
addressing City Attorney Shawn
Smith and asked: "Do we have
the protection in place right now
with this lease?"
The coalition will issue a
request for proposals from con-
tractors who would provide
financing and build the facility.
The contractor selected would
enter into a sublease with the
coalition, Smith explained, adding
that any sublease would be subject
to City Commission approval.
Language of the lease guaran-
tees that the city remains
involved with the project, he said.
The coalition cannot enter into
a sublease "without first obtaining
the express prior written consent
of landlord [the city], which may
be withheld for any reason," the
lease says. "Landlord's consent to
subleasing may be conditioned on
landlord's reasonable approval of
the subtenant's [contractor's] pro-
posed plan for construction and
operation of an adult living com-
munity on the premises, and such
consent may be withheld in land-
lord's sole judgment."
"We were seeking approval of
a lease," coalition board member
Ed Block said. "It would be diffi-
cult to get the kind of companies
we're seeking ..:to bid if we can't
guarantee the property is avail-
able."
After the lease was approved,
"That's that," Block said, adding
that RFPs are ready to go out.
Our people, in conjunction with
the city Planning Department,
will vet these contracts. That's the
next step."

$3.5 million toward building a

The Historical Trust board and
a few others met earlier this week
to discuss sore ideas, but all
agreed any strategy would have
to happen fast.
"It can't happen quick
enough," board member Barbara


Edgar said. "If somebody donat-

in an application to buy a proper-

Edgar said the-trust would like
to dedicate the finished building
to Eyster in his lifetime and fill
the museum with his entire col-

Keys residents.
"We have pottery artifacts dug
up from Indian burial grounds, a
bell and whistle from [Henry
Flagler's] train, maps from the
1800s and tons of stuff from
Indian Key," Edgar said. "There
are so many things we have to
preserve, and we need a place for
it."
Edgar said the trust has identi-

wouldn't give their locations.
Architectural drawings for the
building have already been draft-

City extends $40K contract


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

In a close 4-3 vote, the Key
West City Commission voted to
continue Paul Clayton's contract
as the city's affordable housing
coordinator for another year.
This is the second time
Clayton's contract has been
extended and some commission-
ers questioned what work
Clayton has actually done.
Clayton's contract says his
two jobs are to develop a strategic
plan for affordable housing, and
to educate the community about
the need for it and whether
progress is being made.
For that, he gets paid $40,000
annually. His original contract
was a seven-month deal started in
February 2007. It was renewed
for a full year in October 2007.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
said he has spoken to Clayton
three times in the past 18 months.
I had issues when we passed
this 18 months ago. Not once
have I received a single piece of
paper," he said. "This is money
being spent and we need account-
ability."
Commissioner Teri Johnston


said Clayton's job description is
too vague.
"There needs to be measurable
goals and objectives for every
contract we write. We're doling
out public money and I certainly
think everyone has the right to
know how we're spending it."
Johnston continued, "It [a
strategic plan] means a long-term
direction. To develop a strategic
plan, that has to be the No. 1 goal
of any organization. We need a
point man here to coordinate.
He's [Clayton] in a very critical
position."
Clayton contends that the
topic of affordable housing is
completely fluid and any tangible
strategic plan, by the time it was
produced, would be outdated.
He says he is working hard
and perfectly willing to follow
any direction the commission
provides: "I'll do whatever it is
.you want me to. I have no prob-
lems with goals and objectives."
Mayor Morgan McPherson
strongly supported the work
Clayton has done,
"The strategic plan has come
along. Paul Clayton has gone


)- ; ,L


way above any expectations I
had."
-Although no paperwork has
been produced, McPherson said
Clayton has been and is continu-
ing to identify properties that
could be used to develop afford-
able housing as well as looking
into how the city could use fore-
closed properties. McPherson
identified land costs and a col-
lapsing finance market as the
biggest hurdles to implementing
any type of strategic plan.
"Affordable housing is in a
particular state we've never
seen," McPherson said. "It seems
like every year there's a new
challenge to affordable housing.
In one year's time we've covered
10 miles of ground. The mission
is simple. We have put a consid-
erable amount of time into afford-
able housing."
In early September, the com-
mission passed an ordinance,
driven by McPherson, creating
the Homebuyer's Assistance
Program. In a nutshell, the pro-
gram provides eligible applicants
with a loan of up to $20,000 to
make a down payment on a
home.

increases


payment
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com

The state owes the former
owners of two North Key Largo
parcels nearly $6.9 million, a
Monroe County judge ruled
Wednesday.
Circuit Court Judge Luis
Garcia entered his final judg-
ment in the West-Richardson
case against the Department of
Environmental Protection over
approximately 26 acres taken for
conservation purposes.
SA jury ruled for the former
owners in May, awarding $5.4
million. But following months of
legal arguments, the final order
includes interest. Other costs are
still under discussion.
"The state has been buying up
these properties since the 1980s,
effectively paying 15 cents on
the dollar," said plaintiffs attor-
ney James Mattson of Key
Largo. "We would like to bring
that to an end."
Mattson said he plans to con-
tact from 3,000 to 4,000 other
former owners of Monroe
County land who may have sim-
ilar legal cases.
State officials have 30 days
from Wednesday to file an
appeal, Mattson said.
Garcia's order, still being
processed at press time, includes
an 11 percent interest rate that
compounds the award during any
appeal process, Mattson said.
DEP attorneys could not be
reached for comment.
The 1995 case was largely
dormant until 2004, when the
state used "quick-take" proceed-
ings to acquire the West property
(22 upland acres) for $550,000
and the Richardson property
(four acres) for $80,000. The
state assessments valued the
property as undevelopable under
Area of Critical State Concern
laws.
The jury said the lower
assessments improperly
deprived the owners of the full-
market value of the property if
no building moratorium had
been put in place on North Key
Largo under the Critical Concern
designation .-

Florida tomato growers were
told this week they're not going
to get compensation from the fed-
eral government to offset the mil-
lions they lost due to this sum-
mer's salmonella outbreak.
While Congress was busy
bailing out the financial'services
industry, efforts to seek compen-
sation for the tomato growers
died at least for this year and
maybe for good.
Tomato growers in Florida
estimate they lost at least $60
million this summer.
"This was outside of our con-
trol and we had nothing to do
with it," said one North Florida
packing house owner who lost
about $12 million. "It's just not
fair. We were devastated because
they made a mistake. What we're
asking for is a minimal amount of
money compared to the hundreds
of millions that they've given
other farming entities."
Tomato packers in North
Florida were among the hardest
hit of Florida's tomato growers
because their June ,season coin-
cided with the time tomatoes
from Florida were scrutinized as
a potential cause of the largest
salmonella outbreak in the last
decade. Ultimately, laboratory
tests found links to Mexican pep-
pers, but federal officials have


Tomato growers in Florida say they lost $60 million during the

refused to exonerate tomatoes
from Florida or anywhere else.
U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-
Palm Beach Gardens, with the
support of other Florida
Democrats, introduced a bill
seeking $100 million in emer-
gency financial assistance for the
tomato industry. But the bill
never made it out of the House
Agriculture Committee.
In the waning days of the ses-
sion, there was an attempt to add


the tomato growers' assistance
into the massive Congressional
Appropriations bill that provides
ongoing funding for all govern-
ment activities through the end of
the year. But that ran into a road-
block from. one or more senators
who have been critical of the
Florida tomato growers- because
of their refusal to support worker
compensation agreements reached
between fast-food chains and the
Coalition of Immokalee Workers.


9 charged in mortgage scheme


McClatchy-Tribune


Nine South Floridians are fac-
ing mortgage fraud charges in an
alleged scheme that cost lenders
at least $1 million.
The accused ringleader,
Johnson Cuffy of Boca Raton,
applied for mortgages from vari-
ous banks, using his friends and
family members as so-called
"straw buyers," Florida Attorney
General Bill McCollum said
Wednesday in a statement.
After Cuffy obtained the prop-
erties fraudulently, his accom-
plices would pose as the property
owners and request home equity


lines of credit from the lenders,.
authorities said. The property
owners allegedly kept portions of
the proceeds and laundered the
remaining money through-nonex-
istent companies to Cuffy.
Authorities say most of the fraud
took place in Broward and Palm
Beach counties. The scheme tar-
geted numerous financial institu-
tions.
Florida leads the nation in
mortgage fraud, accounting for
about a quarter of the nation's
fraudulent loans, according to
industry trade groups, .- .
A -


"Florida is fertile ground for
fraud because we had some of the
greatest price appreciation during
the housing boom and lax lending
standards," said Mike Larson, a
housing analyst with Weiss-
Research in Jupiter.
Aside from Cuffy, those
charged are: his sister, Lillia
Cuffy; Cliff Johnson; Joy
Williams; Frumence Paul; Hans
Jeanty; Lloyd Gelu; Paula
Augustus and Charles Reynolds.
All are residents of Palm Beach,
Broward or Miami-Dade coun-
ties. If convicted, they face sen-
tences ranging from 24 to 420
years in prison.

Key West Goombay Festival 2008


Starts on
Thursday with a
opening ceremony
The Key West Goombay
Festival breaks up the
peace on Oct. 17 and 18
with a big street fair on little
Petronia Street in Key West's
Bahama Village neighborhood.
Bands play late into the night
on a stage on Emma Street and
the Junkanoo Rush, the high-
light of Goombay, tumbles
down Whitehead Street on
Saturday evening.
Goombay in Key West is a
family festival, a neighborhood
festival, and a favorite among
locals, who pour into the streets
of Bahama Village to reunite
with old friends, eat Caribbean
food and dance. It's a fundrais-
er for the Coral City Elks
Lodge, though doesn't neces-
sarily serve that purpose well.
"After we finish paying the
bills, we're lucky if we have a
thousand dollars left," says
Ken Sullivan, who holds the
title of Exalted Leader of the

Coral City Elks and is
the festival director
of Goombay.
This is the
29th year that
Goombay has
been celebrated
in Key West. The
way people
describe it, Goombay
is a little like Carnival
and a little like Fantas
Fest. But it has its own
distinctive feel, and a lone
history.
Goombay started in the
Bdhamas in the 1700s % hen
slaves were given three da s N
off for Christmas. The\ cele- I
brated that brief period of
freedom with-a parade in cos-
tumes and masks that borro\ ed
from African tribal cus.roms
The Goombay parade
throughout the Caribbean is
called 'Junkanoo Rush.' It's
thought that the name comes
from John Canoe, an African
tribal leader who demanded
that his people have the free-
dom to celebrate even after


we overlook is the ocean."

they -rf .
were
brought to
the West Indies as slaves. The
biggest Junkanoo Rush in the
Caribbean world takes place in
Nassau, the capital of the
Bahamas. But Key West's has
also become legendary.
On Saturday night Oct. 18,
starting at 6 p.m. outside the
Coral City Elks Lodge on
Whitehead Street, groups of
men in bright costumes, will
.dance down the street playing a
Junkanoo beat on cow bells and
fire-lit drums, with figures on -
stilts teetering above.
"When you feel it, it's like
your adrenaline starts to rush
and you just can't stand there,"
says Charnette Valdez, manag-
er and costume-maker for the
Junkanoo group The Thunder

Music of Goombay

On stage at Emma and Petronia streets


ieys Movie Times


Robert Albury Band
Friday, Oct. 17, starting at 9:30 p.m.
The Robert Albury Band has been the headliner forthe
Goombay Festival for the last several years, playing on Friday
night. Albury, age 64, is a native Conch and favorite local
entertainer who sings the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, and
other hits from the 60s and 70s. His band is always in flux.
Albury and guitarist Fritz Sigler play a regular five-night-a-
week gig at the Ocean Key Resort & Spa. Various musicians
join them when they play other venues and special events. For
Goombay, Albury and Sigler will be joined by Randy Morrow
on drums, Din Allen on bass guitar and Rolando Rojas on
keyboard. All-are locals. For a preview performance, stop by
The Green Parrot Bar on Whitehead Street tonight, Saturday,
Oct. 11 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.


Socaman Cliff & WYLE FYAH band
Saturday, Oct. 18, after the Junkanoo Rush
Clifford Mayers (Socaman Cliff) formed the WYLE FYAH
band in 1998 and has been playing the Key West Goombay
Festival for at least five years (maybe six). The group was
scheduled to play here last year but the concert was rained
out. Mayers, originally from the island of Dominica, now
lives in Coconut Creek in Broward County. He's a versatile
vocalist, but best known for his island music, and his rendi-
tions of reggae hits. The band has opened for Shaggy, Jimmy
Buffett, Third World, Inner Circle, Bunny Wailer, Burning
Spear, Yellowman, Culture, and Mighty Diamonds.


A little girl was dressed in cos-
tume for Goombay 2006.

filled with street vendors on
Friday and Saturday Oct. 17
and 18. You'll see Goldie,
who comes here every year
from the Bahamas to sell his
famous Conch salad (they call
him Goldie because he's
decked out in gold chains and
has a rack of gold teeth); and,
it is hoped, Coconut Kelly,
who sells Coco Frio every year
from a display surrounded by
beautiful tropical flowers. The
Coral City Elks will be out
also, cooking the same BBQ
they make every Saturday on
Whitehead Street.
To start things off right, and
to raise a little money for all
of the fun, a Goombay VIP
Party is planned for tonight at
Rick's Bar at 208 Duval
Street. All are invited for a
buffet of home-cooked
Bahamian style food to
include Priscilla Sullivan's
famous Conch salad and fried
fish. The party starts at 9 p.m.
and goes till midnight or after.
Whenever the food is gone.

led a
mask-making
workshop at
The Studios

last year.


Make a mask

at the Armory


Famed designer
to lead classes
today at TSKW
fifteen years ago, a small
store called Maskerville
opened in a quiet Key West
neighborhood. It quickly aroused
interest, and its reputation spread
after it moved to Bahama
Village in 1996. The store was
owned by John McBride, who in
2002 left Key West for central
Florida, where he now makes
masks for Cirque Du Soleil.
From Oct. 10-27, McBride
will be back in Key West to set
up his Maskerville workshop
inside the historic Armory at The
Studios of Key West, where the
public can browse and purchase
one of the artist's original
designs.
"We got a taste of John's
remarkable artistry last year,
when he brought an extremely
popular workshop to the
Armory," said Martha Barnes,
program coordinator at The
Studios of Key West. "This year,
we're not only increasing the
creative opportunities, but also
installing John's workshop and
creations here at The Studios."
McBride was scheduled to
give a lecture at the Armory on
Friday evening, Oct. 10 on the
tradition and history of the
mask. Today (Saturday) he'll
lead two special workshops on
mask-making and carnival head-
dress construction.
The workshops will start with
-an overview of design principles
and materials. Students will
learn esSential skills with glue

Rebirth for dragon boats?


Bowers looks to Marathon


to revive unique races


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Some might say the last thing
Marathon needs is another boat-
ing event to draw tourists to the
Middle Keys since the annual
powerboat races have declined
severely in popularity.
Little Torch Key resident
Karen Bowers disagrees.
Bowers wants to bring the
Battle in the Bay dragon boat
race she organized in Key West
in 2006 to Marathon. She says
the Southernmost City missed
the boat literally and figura-
tively by not hosting the event
again.
"This is an unmatched Keys
event in terms of adrenaline rush,
team morale, international appeal
and community enrichment,"
Bowers said.
Nineteen teams and more than
450 people took part in the event
at the Truman Waterfront in 2006.
Declining numbers of racers
and spectators have led some
Marathon City Council members
to call the annual Superboat
International Offshore Grand
Prix in the spring a non-event.
And the District III advisory
committee to the Tourist
Development Council cut fund-
ing for the event from $75,000 to
$25,000 next year.
But dragon boats, Bowers
said, couldn't be more different
than the 40- to 50-foot Super V
and Super Cat powerboats that
race on a six-mile path under the
old and new Seven Mile bridges
each May.
The long .wooden boats,
according to the International
Dragon Boat Federation, are
deeply embedded in China's
"Dragon" culture. Each boat fea-
tures an ornately carved drag-
onhead on the bow and a tail on
the stern. Each of the 20 paddlers'
oars represents the dragon's
claws.
Dragon boat racing began
more than 2,000 years ago as a
memorial to Chinese warrior poet
Qu Yan, who committed suicide in
protest of political corruption.
Today, the sport continues to gain
popularity on an international
level and is practiced by millions
of people in more than 60 coun-
tries.


In July 2011, Tampa Bay will
host the 10th World Dragon Boat
Championships, an event that
over the years has been in cities
all over the world; including
Prague, Sydney, Shanghai,
Vancouver, Rome, Cape Town
and Philadelphia.
"There is no reason why we
can't do that here, but we have to
establish a sound local event,"
Bowers said.
Bowers has been in talks with
Local officials and is working on
securing a grant from the Florida
Sports Foundation to help fund
the event. She plans to contract
with Great White North
Communications, which helps
professionally organize dragon
boat races as fundraisers or com-
munity events.
Bowers said Sombrero Beach
would be an ideal and unique
place for the races, which are
planned for May 2009. She
hopes for as many as 40 teams,
each with 20 paddlers, a steers-
man and a drummer who helps
paddlers keep their cadence.
"I don't know of any dragon
boat event in the continental U.S.
that launches from a beach; usu-
ally it's docks or floating docks,"
she said. "It would be so
Caribbean."
For more information on the
event, being a sponsor or partici-
pating, contact Bowers at lunar
Schik@earthlink.net.... .'....

This shows the teamwork
necessary in dragon boat
racing. Twenty paddlers,
along with a steersman
and a drummer keeping
cadence, must work
together in unison. Each
dragon boat features

dragonhead on the bow
and a tail on the steriFThe

Lady Canes sweep

Key West's
struggles

By DICK WAGNER
and KEVIN WADLOW ..

Before Tuesday afternoon's
match with Coral Shores, there
had been some hopeful talk
among the Key West High
School volleyball players -
mired in a long losing streak -
as they stretched in the lobby of
the Bobby Menendez Gym.
Hope wasn't enough, as
Coral Shores (9-8) swept the
Conchs in three consecutive
Games, 25-14, 25-21, 25-22.
"We have some weapons,"
Hurricanes coach Andy Thiery
said afterward.
They included Julia Hatfield,
whose kills were delivered with
authority; Lauren Keleher, who
had five blocks; -Lauren
Sanchez, whose sets resulted in
assists; and Chelsea Moeller,
who was a factor as a server and
a front-line hitter.
Hatfield set the tone as the
Hurricanes easily won the first
game and hung on in the next
two games"

Garcia quits Conch team


VOLLEYBALL / From 36

inability to finish strong.
"It's inconsistency," coach
Jessy Hulme said. "We have
great moments and then we slip
back."
With their 10th consecutive
loss, the Conchs slipped to 1-11.
They play again at home on
Tuesday against Marathon High
School.
With Coral Shores not play-
ing as well as it had in the first
two games, Key West led, 21-19,
in the third game. "You can't
give a hungry team life in their
own gym," Thiery said.
But three successive points
by the Hurricanes a kill by
Holly Given, an ace by Hatfield
and a block by Shannon Penix
put them back ahead before
Jess Bodmer tied it at 22-22. A'
Conch error followed a timeout,
and then Penix served out the
match with two aces.
Key West played without
two-year starter Jacque Garcia,
who quit the team because of
what she said was a conflict with
Hulme. Garcia watched her for-
mer teammates from the bleach-
ers.
"I feel bad for Jacque; this is
her senior year," Hulme said. "I
don't think anyone should quit


but that was her decision. But
this could be better for our future
because the two freshmen will
be able to play all the time."
She was referring to Shanyia
Watson and Laura Garcia, who
combined for 17 points in the
match and who joined Stephanie
Garmany, Victoria Brisson and
Fran Hicks in the starting lineup.
"I'm picking it up more and
more. I really like it," said
Watson, a talented basketball
player who had never played
volleyball before this season.
Now, she said, it's her passion.
A scheduled Oct. 21 match
between the Canes and Conchs
in Tavernier has been canceled.
"Key West had to reschedule
some district games and a lot of
other complications came up,"
Thiery said.

Canes slip
Coral Shores lost a Thursday
district match, 3-1, at
Archbishop Carroll.
The Canes dropped the first
games, 25-21 and 25-17, before
winning a 25-17 decision in the

ment Wednesday at the
Biltmore. Gulliver (305) was
first and Belen (318) was
second.
"Wednesday's match
found us a bit broken,"
Laubenstein said, referring
to Jack Lockwood (sore
knee), Blake Oropeza (pulled
back muscle) and Zack
Kemp (head cold).
Still, the 328 was Key
West's best score this season.
Oropeza shot an 80 to lead
the Conchs, followed by
Lockwood and Daniel
Margil, who both shot 81,
and Casey Dion, who had an
86. The meet's top scorer
was Gulliver's Chris Ingham
with a 72.
The Conchs will rely on
seniors Oropeza, Margil and


Dion on Tuesday, but their
success could depend on how
well Lockwood does. A
sophomore who has grown
almost seven inches since his
freshman year and is now 5
feet 10, Lockwood has been
Key West's top scorer, shoot-
ing consistently in the 70s.
Now known as "Cadillac
Jack" after recently buying a
Cadillac belt buckle at a Port
Charlotte mall, Lockwood
has emerged as one of the top
junior golfers in the Florida.
He finished 20th in last sum-
mer's state boys junior
championships.
An individual golfer can
also qualify for the regionals
by finishing in the top three
Tuesday. The regional meet
will be Oct. 20 at the

Lauderhill.


and forcing us into mistakes and
bad hits," Thiery said. "We had
some good moments but not
enough consistency."
The Canes were down 13-3 in
the opening game but rallied
impressively to tie at 19-19.
"Then we couldn't finish and
made a couple mistakes," Thiery
said.
Senior hitter Chelsea Moeller
"played her best match of the
season," Thiery said. "She had
12 kills with at least eight
blocks."
Hatfield played well defen-
sively in the match, which
dropped the Canes record in
District 16-3A to 4-4.
Results from a Friday home
doubleheader against a strong
Gulliver program were not avail-
able at press time.
Coral Shores is scheduled to
play at a Florida Christian

Princeton
Keynoter Staff


Island Christian School's
boys soccer team opens post-
season play Tuesday, facing
Calusa Prep in a 4 p.m. dis-
trict. game at Princeton
Christian.
"It's not a bad draw for
us," said ICS coach Robert
Lucas. "Calusa's pretty good
"but we played with them."
The Eagles (3-5) split with
the Colts in two regular-sea-
son games this year.
Second-round schedules
were not available at press


time.
Island Christian finished
the regular season Friday at
Dreyfoos School of Fort
Lauderdale (results pending).
About three dozen Florida
schools play boys soccer as a
fall sport, not enough to be a
fully sanctioned, by the
Florida High School Athletic
Association. There will be no
official state champion, but
teams may participate in
regional tournaments.
Meanwhile, the Lady
Eagle volleyball team (2-5)
travels to Colonial Christian
for a Friday doubleheader
against the Patriots.
Postseason play begins
Oct. 27.


'Mad Dog' brings tourney to Keys


Former Dolphin's
Fishing Classic
is Oct. 24, 25
Keynoter Staff

Jim Mandich, the Miami
Dolphin alumnus and current
radio announcer, brings his new
fishing-tournament series to
Islamorada on Oct. 24 and 25.
The Mad Dog Mandich
Fishing Classic targets dolphin,
tuna, kingfish and wahoo during
its full day of fishing Oct. 25.
The top boat wins a $5,000
prize, while other awards go to
the runner-up boat and for the top
fish in each target species. Best
overall, woman and junior angler
also be honored, along with the
"weekend warrior" award for best
snapper and grouper catch.
Keys activities will be based at
the Chesapeake Resort on Whale


Harbor, and the nearby Ziggie's
and Mad Dog's Restaurant, in
which Mandich has an interest.
Mariners Hospital in Tavernier
will be the primary beneficiary of
the first Mad Dog Mandich
Classic in the Keys.
The series launched in Miami
Beach in May, with about 35
boats and 200 anglers taking part.
Mandich has a home in the
Upper Keys "so 'it only makes
sense to bring the series to the
Keys," said Judy Layne, manager
of the Mad Dog Classic Fishing
Series.
Early-entry fees of $400 per
boat (covering four anglers) are
available until Oct. 17, then go to
$450.
Each boat can fish up to six
anglers ($125 each for any above
the four in boat entry). All con-
testants receive an event T-shirt
and awards banquet ticket.


Events begin Oct. 4 with a
captains' meeting, reception and
silent auction at Ziggie's.
The fishing-day agenda has
boat checkout by 8 a.m. with
lines-out at 3:30.p.m. All fish
must be weighed by 6 p.m. at
Chesapeake. A dockside party,
awards .presentation and buffet
take place beachside.
Mandich was a standout tight
end at the University of Michigan
and first-round draft pick by the
Dolphins in 1969. He played
eight seasons with Miami, includ-
ing the Dolphins' two Super Bowl
victories and Perfect Season.
He is now part of the radio
broadcast team for the Dolphins
(his 14th year), and has a regular
drive-time radio show on WQAM
(560 AM).
