Fast Buck's

By SEAN KINNEY

One of Sarah Palin's lesser-
known accomplishments is her
prowess with a cutlass, or so it
would seem. A costume this out-
landish can mean only one
thing: Fantasy Fest is upon us.
Tony Falcone, who founded
Fast Buck Freddie's in 1976 and
went on to organize the first
Fantasy Fest in 1979, is still
working to ensure that his Duval
Street institution is ground zero
for costumery of all sorts: A
whole section of the store is
dedicated to Fantasy Fest related
merchandise.
Patty Sickel, the buyer's
assistant at Fast Buck's, says she
picked things out for this year's
Fantasy Fest that would fit with
the theme of Pirates, Pundits
and Political Party Animals -
including masks featuring the
likenesses of both Democratic
and Republican presidential and
vice presidential candidates.

About 13,500 voters requested

istered voters.
The voting pace picks up

Nearly a fourth of the ballots
cast in the 2004 presidential elec-

Head shops sobered up


Estimated value
of seized goods
around $1 million
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

After what some consider
over-the-top raids on 13 head
shops in Key West, the economic
ramifications were being felt.
"We sell for straight tobacco
use only," said Alon Croitoru,


owner of Island Cigars at 501
Greene St. "They just came in
and started the raid."
Croitoru estimates the value of
merchandise confiscated from his
store at a little more than $3,000.
Federal, state and local author-
ities from 16 different agencies
converged on Duval and Greene
streets early Thursday afternoon,
simultaneously raiding 13 head
shops and seizing financial
records, computers, bongs, other


drug paraphernalia and cata-
logues. No arrests were made.
Throughout the early after-
noon, agents loaded a large
Budget rental truck, which was
parked on Duval, with boxes
filled with financial records,
bongs, catalogues and more.
U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement led the-
raids. Federal agents are in the
middle of doing a detailed inven-
tory of the seized merchandise but

Judy Hadley, a clerk at Fast Buck Freddie's, models the Sarah
Palin mask a big seller for Fantasy Fest this year.


'Palin sold out first'


MASKS / From 1

"We bought all four in equal
amounts," said Sickel. "Sarah
[Palin] was gone in like three
days."
SSickel said she has had to
reorder the Palin masks twice
already. "People have been buy-
ing because they want to make
fun of her," she whispered.
"They've been selling like
crazy."
So far, Fast Buck's has sold
about 150 of the Palin masks,
which are going for $4.95 each.
Sickel says she tried to order


full latex masks featuring Palin
but that those are usually made
in China and the Palin masks,
apparently, haven't made it to
production just yet.
"Palin? You can't even keep
them on the shelf," said John
Cline, a clerk at Fast Buck's.
"Sarah Palin sold out first."
So, if you're walking Duval
Street reveling in the splendor
that is Fantasy Fest and see a
body-painted Palin slamming a
frozen cocktail out of an air-
brushed, personalized, oversized
cup, rest assured. It's probably
not the real deal.

Sail to Louisiana
is delayed by jail

A man's plan to sail a stolen
boat to Louisiana ran aground
Wednesday when a Monroe
County Sheriff's Office marine
deputy took him into custody.
Eric Pendarvis, 38, was arrest-
ed by Deputy Sever Hustad off
mile marker 99.6 in Key Largo.
He's charged with grand theft and
altering a boat registration.
A boater who was watching a
blue sailboat for its owner report-
ed that the vessel was taken with-
out permission and tied to

A federal agent takes some of the merchandise into custody
Thursday afternoon.


'It got too blatant'


RAID/ From 1

an early estimate pegs the total
retail value around $1 million.
"It shut down my business.
There's a better way to do it,"
Croituro said. "They just try to
mess with us. They could've sent.
a letter. It was a shame, that's
how I feel about"
Friday, Key West Mayor
Morgan McPherson said the
raids will make for a cleaner,
friendlier Duval.
"Through the course of the
campaign for my last election ...
one of the issues was cleaning
Duval up. We [city government]
engaged in conversations first
with Code Enforcement to see if
there was anything they could
do," he said. Then the city
explored recourse via municipal
law.
"We couldn't create an ordi-
nance that supercedes state law,"
McPherson said.
The raids were based on fed-
eral law defining what is drug
paraphernalia, says Monroe
County State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich.
He says federal and state laws are
different.
"The federal statutes are much
broader in defining drug para-
phernalia," he said.
"We did talk to the State
Attorney's Office," McPherson
said. But that office cannot enforce
federal laws, only state statutes.
"From that conversation, I
personally spoke to a customs
agent. We told them we had a
concern and wanted to know if
they could address it. It's literally
taken 10 months," he said.
"We live in a country that


has laws," McPherson said.
"Marijuana and the use of it is
illegal." Besides, he said, "Who
wants their kids to see bongs and
pipes?"
Croitoru said he has no prob-
lem complying with the law. But
"the economy is so bad and
we're just now getting people
back to Key West. I have noth-
ing. They don't have to do this; it
makes us feel like a drug dealer."
Some city officials have long
complained about some of the
displays in'Duval store windows.
In fact, Commissioner Barry
Gibson has made one of his goals
getting the Duval shops cleaned
up.
However, Gibson said Thurs-
day, "I didn't have anything to do
with this. The City Commission
never acted on this" as a full
body.
But he said on Friday that he
thinks "this is something the peo-
ple wanted. I think a lot of par-
ents would be offended by that. It
wasn't just a couple of items in
the window. It got too blatant. It
was kind of right in your face."
But Gibson, who owns two
businesses in Old Town, also
noted that there would be reper-
cussions in the business commu-
nity.
"It's going to hurt. It'll hurt a
lot of people trying to pay rent.
When times get tough, people get
very protective of their business-
es."
Bascom Grooms, president of
the Key West Chamber of
Commerce, said, "I'm not sure
taking them [bongs, pipes, etc.]
from them is the right step." But
he did say he feels that store-
fronts filled with drug parapher-
nalia portray Key West %\ ori:~n

Acevedo earns

another term
Monroe County School District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo's first four-year term has been tumultuous. He butts
heads with School Board members and has come under fire for
making unilateral decisions.
And he draws criticism for having too many highly paid
administrators for a district this size. He also drew fire from
outside consultants over widespread use of supplemental pay
for tasks critics say should be part of defined job duties, not
extra pay.
Despite all that, student performance during his first term has
improved districtwide. When he was first elected, Monroe
County schools were ranked in the second tier, earning a "B"
from the state. For the last three years, the district maintained
"A" status, and only Key West High School rated a "B" from
the state last year.
Under Acevedo, the district also improved graduation rates,
climbing from 33rd in the state to ninth overall.
And despite criticism for a top-heavy district and big pay
gaps between administrators and teachers, Monroe boasts the
highest salary for beginning teachers in Florida.
His Republican opponent, Fred Colvard, was principal of
Marathon High School for two years beginning in 2002 before
retiring after an injury he said was sustained breaking up a
fight.
Before coming to the Keys, Colvard had more than 30 years
experience as an educator, athletic director, principal and
superintendent. Much of this in West Virginia.
Colvard has criticized Acevedo, a democrat, for a budget
deficit of $6.4 million, and promised if elected to build
reserves, make schools safer and increase teacher pay.
Colvard has some good ideas and is qualified to be the school
district's superintendent, but so is Acevedo, and he has spent
his entire career working for the district.
We have been among Acevedo's harshest critics for some of
his policy decisions. When he chose to add another test to
gauge FCAT performance, we lambasted the test as a waste of
time and money.
Acevedo has guided the district through tough times with
impressive results. As the economy continues to get worse,
Acevedo is best prepared to head the district. But he needs to
demonstrate more fiscal responsibility by trimming the dis-
trict's operating budget, looking for efficiencies and trimming
the non-classroom ranks.
We have great teachers and students in the Keys and there's
no reason we can't have some of the best schools in the coun-
try. Acevedo is in- a position to make this happen. We recom-
mend Randy Acevedo for schools superintendent.

Lobsters aren't just coming and going from traps


EDITOR:
Please, continue to publish letters that are not
obscene or libelous and preserve our freedom of
speech, even for idiots.
On the topic of spiny lobsters escaping from
traps, lobsters do not, as a recent letter writer
emphatically states, "enter and leave the traps at
will." If this were the case, one would not find
dead and starving lobster in ghost traps, and trap
fishermen would not expend time and effort col-
lecting sub-legal lobsters and placing them in
traps to attract other lobsters.
Now, lobsters do escape from standard traps;
there are scientific studies that show this. Lyons
and Kennedy (1981) reported that studies showed
an escape rate of 1 percent per day. However,
these studies were done during the day, when
lobster stay in protected areas.
Further studies (Hunt in 1981) placed tagged
lobsters in traps, monitored day and night, and
showed that small lobster (carapace length of less
than 66 millimeters) escaped from traps more eas-
ily (53 percent over a. five-day period) than larger
lobsters. Sub-legal lobsters (carapace length
between 66 and 75 millimeters) escaped at a less-
er rate (20 percent over a five-day period) and
only 12 percent of legal size lobsters escaped over


the same five- day period. The overall escape rate
was 15 percent, a daily rate of about 3 percent.
The loss of lobsters to the fishery and to the
environment to ghost traps and by the use of sub-
legal or short lobsters as attractants (bait) is quite
significant. A study by Hunt, et. al., in 1986 esti-
mates that between 600,000 to 3.6 million shorts
succumb to the legal fishery each year. And add
to this number the lobsters lost to ghost traps, the
illegal market for short lobster, and the abuses of
the recreational fishery, and you have losses that
-should not, must not, be lost to a declining
resource.
With a six- to nine-month pelagic larval peri-
od, the reproductive potential of our spiny lob-
sters is based on a regionwide population, and as
lobster fishing in the Caribbean increases, recruit-
ment of juvenile lobsters in the Keys will
decrease. We cannot afford to waste juveniles to
maintain the fishing practices of the past and
existing fishery.
Use of a true den trap, as I have advocated
over the last few years, would save lobsters lost
to the practice of baiting with shorts and lobsters
lost to ghost traps for the future of the fishery

Beer and wine at movies is not a problem


EDITOR:
Re: The letter about alcohol being served at
the Tavernier Towne Cinema. Here are the facts
about the cinema business.
Nearly 75 percent of the box office sales -
tickets sold go to the studios. The reason that
no food or drink is allowed is simply because the
concession sales is what pays the bills for any
cinema business. One does not bring his or her
own food when visiting a restaurant and the
same rule applies here.
I have owned the Tavemier Towne Cinemas
for nearly 10 years. It was destined to become a
BellSouth warehouse before I stepped in.
Fortunately, my plans succeeded in not only
keeping our cinema but expanding it into a five-
plex over time.
The cinema offers first-run movies, weekly
specials and an ambiance that appeals to all age


Fix the streetlights
EDITOR:
How many Public Works employees does it
take to change a light bulb? In Marathon, it
seems to take more than we have.
Six weeks ago I notified Donna with the city
of Marathon that there were six street lights out
on the Sombrero Beach Road bike path. Last
week I called her again and advised there were
now 10 lights out. To date, nothing has been
done. What does it take?
There are many joggers, walkers and bicy-
clists that use this path in the evening and early
morning, and the dark spots sometimes do not
allow proper vision.

groups. The adult groups for years have been.
asking for beer and wine, as they would like to
enjoy such beverages with their entertainment.
On a daily basis, when the lights come on for
cleanup, we are picking up a variety of sneaked-
in cans and bottles of beer and wine because we
don't have it available, especially on ladies night.
Most of the cinemas you visit nowadays,
including in Marathon and Key West, not only
serve beer and wine but also full liquor, as well
as dinners.
We will be dispensing in clear plastic cups.
We have a 24/7 surveillance system throughout
and we will vigorously control who makes such
a purchase, as we will be able to control and
supervise the sale. I am hopeful that we will add
enjoyment to our venue and certainly it is some-
thing that I will personally scrutinize, as I am
very sensitive to family-oriented issues.

Tourism lags due to. high costs


EDITOR:
I love to read your paper online to
keep up with one of my favorite
places to vacation. I was reading
about the low tourism rate and would
like to respond. Trace the problem
back to dollars.
I used to visit Marathon three to
four times a year, usually for two to
four days at a time. I fly once a year
in May and still do in May, staying


this May at the Holiday Inn. I would
usually drive down the other times
from Murrell Inlet, S.C., 750 miles. I
would typically stay in a small fish-
ing -type hotel.
However, now everything is more
modern and much more expensive,
and that is your problem nothing
is available for less than $100.

Boys & Girls Club does it right


EDITOR:
I am writing in regards to the Boys
& Girls Club of Big Pine Key.
My daughter has attended the club
for several years after school and dur-
ing the summer vacation. The club
provides a safe and fun place for chil-
dren to be while their parents are
working. Being a single parent
myself, that is very important and
gives me peace of mind knowing my
child enjoys spending time there.
'I would like to thank the employ-
ees at the club for doing such a won-
derful job and making a difference in
the children's lives.
Dan Dombroski, executive director
of the Boys & Girls Club of Key
West and the Lower Keys, is wonder-
ful with the kids and really seems to
keep everything running smoothly,
and also the staff members at the club
on Big Pine Key: Cece Williamson,
Julie Hill, Lauren Waldrop and Kathy
Barlow. They all do an exceptional


job with the children and really seem
to care about their well being.
Cece is a genuine asset to the club.
She goes above and beyond what is
required of her. She works very hard
to keeps the members busy with
activities and encourages the children
to be aware of others feelings and to
work with one another. She is also
very supportive to the parents of the
children who attend.
As we all know, funding for many
programs like this one has been
reduced or taken away completely. I
encourage anyone who has the means
to donate to this wonderful organiza-
tion to please do so. They have tried
very hard to keep activities going for
the children and have tried to keep *
their rates as low as they can so that
parents can afford for their children to
attend. I hope this program continues
for many years to come.

Gay people are not sick people


EDITOR:
I would like to compliment your
editorial of Sept 27 about Judge
Audling's ruling is long overdue on
allowing gay parents. I have known
quite a few gay couples that raised
children and noticed they do an
excellent job. If I were to be reborn
as a foster child, I would choose a
gay family over a fundamentalist
one.
Homosexuality was listed as a
mental illness until 1974. The reason
is that before this, gays were being
jailed as criminals. There is no asso-
ciation between homosexuality and
mental illness. The diagnosis, theo-
mania, remained.
Basically if one group, like Sarah
Palin's sect, points to another group
and states they are sick, then either
the pointers or pointees must be. The
persecution of homosexuality has old
religious roots. History has many
mentally healthy homosexuals like.
Da Vinci and Michelangelo who
lived when they could be burned at
the stake by the church. History's
fundamentalists, the barbecuers, are


never the mentally healthy ones.
I have posted at
www.SpirosMedicine.org a picture
of a gay rights demo in Toronto this
year. One sign said, "God hates
everything." These young people are
our patients. They are thrown out of
their families, often cursed and com-
pletely cut off from all family mem-
bers.
These patients state that God does
not exist. The first medical therapy is
to tell them not to judge the possibil-
ity of God by the actions of mentally
ill people. If Republicans win this
presidential election, we know we
will have less compassionate judges
like Aidlin and more that are Palin's
choice like Scalia. She has been
associated with the Constitution
Party that wants to make homosexu-
al behavior illegal again.
The age of the church' ruling
again with its vicious fist may be
one Supreme Court justice away.

God's law is higher than any manmade law


EDITOR:
I write this in response to your edito-
rial supporting the adoption of a child
by a homosexual couple. There have
been two laws disregarded by this, as I
understand. One to which your editorial
refers is against the law of Florida.
A Circuit Court judge has overturned
a 30 -year Florida law by authorizing a
homosexual couple to adopt a child.
How a Circuit Court judge can overturn
the law of the land is beyond my com-
prehension. There is a large doughnut
hole here.
The other and much more important
law is the Law of God. I am neither an
anti-gay extremist nor a bigot, as you
label all of those who continue to
uphold family values. You put this latter
term in quotes as if it were something
that was outside the English language.
Maybe you are right, as families now
seem to have no definition in our lost
society. With Amendment 2 on the bal-
lot, we will soon find out.
Are we even now beginning to
understand that when God's laws are
broken, there are dire penalties? .


Consider the situation of America today.
Is it because of government or banks or
other institutions? We can point fingers
in all directions, but the problem is us.
We no longer look to God and uphold
the very foundation on which this coun-
try was built.
We are a nation of lust of the flesh
- if it feels good, do it; lust of the eyes
- I see it and I want it; and pride I
want it, I deserve it and I am going to
get it the very things that we have
struggled with and disobeyed since God
created us.
It is not me who brings these things
forth, but it is God's word, the Bible;
the first chapter of the Book of Romans
sums it all up. You may ignore it, disre-
gard it or laugh at it. It doesn't change
it because it is the truth.
Where is the Roman Empire today?
America will very soon find out consid-
ering its current direction. God will
remain sovereign. I trust my life and
eternity on it. Who do you trust?

Overby a big issue in prosecutor race


Ward says morale
a problem, Kohl
cites experience
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

In the race for Monroe
County state attorney the top
prosecutor in the Keys sever-
al of -the election issues come
down to a marl not on the ballot:
J. Jefferson Overby.
Overby, a former Circuit
Court judge, works as a chief
assistant to Mark Kohl, the two-
term incumbent prosecutor look-
ing to serve another four years.
Challenger Dennis Ward has
charged that Kohl overpays his
two chief assistants, Catherine
Vogel and Overby, who each
make $142,000 annually.
Many instances of staff dis-
satisfaction and attorney
turnover can be traced to
Overby's management style,
Ward said. But Kohl says
Overby brings a wealth of legal
knowledge to the office, in'addi-
tion to budget-shaping financial
acumen.
Ward contends salaries
should be more evenly distrib-
uted throughout the staff to keep
frontline prosecutors in the
Keys. Kohl believes it necessary
to pay veteran staffers enough to
stay so they can provide expert-
ise and guidance to attorneys
often not long out of law school.
The total annual budget for


the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office actually the
state attorney for the 16th
Judicial Circuit is approxi-
mately $4.5 million.
Monroe County provides
space for three offices Key
West, Marathon and Plantation
Key and for some program
costs.
Most of the budget comes
from the state, allocated by the
Florida Legislature to the 20
statewide judicial circuits. A for-
mula helps determine local allo-
cations.
Because of.the Florida Keys
geography, Monroe County is
considered its own circuit. More
populous counties typically con-
stitute their own circuit, but
some Florida circuits contain six
or seven counties.
The local office has 18 assis-
tant state attorney positions: 11
in Key West, three in Marathon
and four in the Upper Keys. In
total the office has a staff,
including investigators and
administrative staff, of 58.
The state attorney's office is
charged with prosecuting crimi-
nal cases and convening grand
juries. A grand jury can be asked
to decide if a suspect should be
indicted, or can be charged with
reviewing government opera-
tions or policy.

Mark Kohl
Kohl, 52, says his two terms
give voters plenty of reason to
return him to the top law-

post.
He points
to his record
as a career
prosecutor,
which began
in Palm Beach
County after
KOHL he graduated
from law
school in 1985. He said that
experience, particularly in
felony cases, gives him an edge
over Ward.
"The major-crime rate in
Monroe County is down for sev-
eral years in a row,' he said.
"That's not all because of the
State Attorney's Office but it
shows the legal system is work-
ing."
Kohl, a single father of one
daughter, moved to the Upper
Keys in the late 1980s, working
briefly in private practice before
joining then-State Attorney Kirk
Zuelch's staff for eight years.
Kohl successfully challenged
Zuelch in 2000, saying he dis-
agreed with the legality of work-
ing arrangements Zuefh estab-
lished with other state agencies,
including the Department of
Children and Families.
Among accomplishments he
cites during his tenure are a pro-
gram that targets bad-check
cases that harm local residents
and businesses: The emphasis
has generated more than $2 mil-
lion in restitution for victims,
Kohl said.
A local effort to establish a
fee in negotiated cases to partial-

as a template
S for a program
adopted
throughout
Florida, Kohl
said.
WARD "We get
paid by about
a third of the defendants," he
said. "After a while, it starts to
add up."
The fund cannot be tapped to
pay salaries but can be used to
purchase equipment.
SHe said the office has greatly
improved victim outreach and
witness coordination.
And Kohl said his active civic
life he belongs to virtually all
the local chambers of commerce,
Leadership Monroe and the
Upper Keys Rotary, among other
groups helps him stay in
touch with residents.
"I've taken some criticism for
being so active but it doesn't
take anything away from being
state attorney," Kohl said. "We
meet in the morning or at lunch,
when I'm going to eat anyway.
Getting out into the community
contributes to my knowledge of
what's going on in the county."
Turnover rate among the
office's 18 assistant state attor-
neys has been high, Kohl said,
but says it largely tracks
turnover in the Public
Defender's Office.
"Our turnover rate was 40
percent [annually] at its highest
but the economy was good and
they could easily move to better-
paying jobs," he said. "Now that
the economy has changed, we
have very low turnover. It's two
people so far this year, and one
of those was medical."

Dennis Ward
Ward, an assistant public
defender in the Upper Keys, says
many types of experience can
make a good state prosecutor.
"People talk a lot about court-
room experience but the office
also requires investigation,
administration and fiscal respon-
sibility," said Ward, a Miami
Beach police officer for 29
years.
Ward, 56, says his varied
background gives him a well-
rounded resume to replace Kohl.
He acknowledges his experi-
ence as both a prosecutor and
assistant public defender in


Monroe County doesn't include
a courtroom trial for a felony
case. But he points to a relative,
the late Richard Gerstein, who
served as Miami-Dade County's
state attorney for 22 years and
helped uncover South Florida
links to the Watergate burglary.
"He'd never tried a felony
before taking office and he did
pretty well," Ward said.
Ward, a six-year Keys resi-
dent, said he decided to run
because of what he describes as
discontent -in the Keys legal
community over operations at
the State Attorney's Office.
"I could not allow this ineffi-
cient operation to go on," he
said. "I was not going to let
Mark Kohl go unchallenged."
He cited high turnover among
prosecutors as a key -problem,
and points to cases he believes
should have been investigated
and prosecuted more vigorously.
Ward also frequently mentions
allegations of state Sunshine
Law violations, which he says
Kohl doesn't investigate enough.
"It's crazy what goes on
down here," Ward said. "The
public has a right to know what's
happening."
Ward, a single father of six,
said he would reorganize the
state attorney's staff, specifically
targeting at least one of Kohl's
highly paid chief assistants.
"It is a top-heavy administra-
tion," he said. "Some of the
salaries are excessive, and we
need to evaluate every position."
He said, "I'll put that money
to better use, to keep prosecutors
here longer than they stay now.
We really need to make that
effort."
He vowed to "aggressively"
prosecute domestic-abuse and
white-collar crime.
After Ward left the police
department, he briefly went into
private practice before joining
the Keys State Attorney's Office
in mid-2002. He left about two
years later. "The atmosphere was
more negative than positive," he
said.
He worked as assistant gener-
al manager at Keys Fisheries in
Marathon for a year, then
returned to Miami Beach to help
care for his ailing mother. He
lost a bid for Miami Beach City
Commission.
Ward said he was recruited
for an opening in the local public
defender's office in late 2005.

He who counts the votes...


Challenger for
elections chief
says laws broken
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


The race for Monroe County elections
supervisor rarely draws much notice here.
And why should it?
The incumbent, Harry Sawyer, hasn't
had an opponent for 16 years. But this
year is different, with both Sawyer and his
opponent, political science professor
Henry Woods, claiming the other has
crossed a line that separates the office
from politics.
First, the challenger.
Woods accuses Sawyer of using his
office to campaign saying people have
been complaining to him that the front
counters in the three county offices where
people go to get absentee ballots are "lit-
tered" with material that has Sawyer's
name and office displayed on it much too
prominently.
"I will claim this is electioneering
within 100 feet of the polls and should be
removed," Henry Woods told the
Keynoter, pointing out voter-education
materials that all have printed on them:
"Harry L. Sawyer, Jr., Supervisor of
Elections." One of them, a large ribbon-
shaped magnet, has Sawyer's name and
office printed in two places. There are
also nail files with his name imprinted.
"Early voting- starts on the 20th ... This
material should be gone," says Woods,
adding that he plans to contact the state
attorney if Sawyer doesn't agree to
remove the items from the view of those
coming in to vote.
The law prohibits campaign signs and
campaign material within 100 feet of a
polling place. But Sawyer is the office
holder in charge of elections. So it seems
natural that his name would be printed on
brochures that inform people where they
can vote and when.
The incumbent responds.
"It's voter education. It's not election-
eering," Sawyer says when told of Woods'
complaint. "Because you're on the ballot at
the time doesn't strip you of your authority
and your obligations to the people."
Sawyer points out that his name is on
the office's buildings, asking whether his
name should come off the buildings, too,
if the law is to be interpreted the way
Woods supposes.
But even before he was confronted
with Woods' charge of electioneering,
Sawyer said that it was Woods who wants
to bring politics into the office of supervi-
sor of elections.
Sawyer, a Republican and native of
Key West, was elected supervisor of elec-
tions in 1988 and has served five four-


Year terms. He says he
ran for the office in
1988 because he saw
W P then-Supervisor of
Elections Peter Ilchuk
as too political, involv-
ing himself in cam-
paign "shenanigans."
SIlchuk was defeated
SANYER in the primary that year
by fellow Democrat
Merili McCoy. The people elected him,
Sawyer says, because they wanted a
supervisor of elections who kept his nose
out of political races. Woods, he says,
wants to turn things back the other way in
his advocating for the
supervisor of elections
S to do seminars on how
to campaign for office.
But - Sawyer
responds most vigor-
ously to -Woods'
charge that his office
doesn't do enough out-
reach to voters.
WOODS "We overkill in
some areas to make sure voters get the
information," he says, listing the things
he's been doing for the past 10 to 20
years, including paying to print a sample
ballot in two newspapers; holding semi-
nars for candidates in Marathon and Key
West; and mailing brochures to newly
registered voters. This year, they're mail-
ing sample ballots to every registered
voter in Monroe County.
"The problem with Henry is he doesn't
know anything about the supervisor of
elections," Sawyer told the Keynoter.
Woods, a Democrat and adjunct pro-
fessor of political science at Florida Keys
Community College who ran former Key
West Mayor Jimmy Weekley's five cam-
paigns (and one also for Monroe County
Commissioner Wilhelmina Harvey in
2000), says there's nothing to prevent a-
supervisor of elections from going the
extra mile and talking to candidates about
how to organize a campaign.
"You usually think of your supervisor
of elections as. a bean counter. I want to
raise it to the level of civic educator," he
says. He rejected Sawyer's intimation that
he's too political for the job.
"That's an absurd statement for him to
make," Woods said. "I'm an honest indi-
vidual with a lot of campaign experience
... My opponent is upset that anyone
would dare to run against him."
Woods worked as a staffer on Capitol
Hill for 26 years before moving to Key
West in 1999. He's originally from Hot
Springs, Ark.

Judge hopefuls focus


on backgrounds


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Two lawyers from the Lower Keys
have compared backgrounds and debated
potential conflicts in the nonpartisan elec-
tion to become a Circuit Court judge. But
that's about all they can do.
The winner of the Nov. 4 race between
Tegan Slaton and Mary Vanden Brook fills
the six-year term on the bench following
the retirement of Circuit Court Judge
Sandra Taylor. The two are in a runoff, sur-
viving a five-candidate August primary.
Vanden Brook, 52, court administrator
for the 16th Judicial Circuit (Monroe
County) since 2005, says she "understands
the business behind the justice system."
Slaton, 51, says his time as a litigator
and traffic-court magistrate best qualifies
him for the post. "I love being in the
courtroom. It's where I've spent my entire
career," he said. "It's intellectually and
professionally rewarding."
Legal canons limit what issues judicial
candidates may discuss during cam-
paigns, so races typically center on back-
ground, qualifications and endorsements.
Slaton's supporters say that while
Vanden Brook has worked as an adminis-
trator and mediator within the local legal
system, she has not been an advocate at
trial for more than 15 years.
Vanden Brook counters, "I've been a
lawyer in two states for the past 25 years,
and been in the court system the entire
time. I have been a trial lawyer. You could
say I haven't been an advocate in court for
a while, but I have worked as a magistrate
and mediator within the legal system."
Vanden Brook's backers say Slaton will
be prevented from hearing many criminal
cases involving the local Public Defender's
Office because he's married to Public
Defender Rosemary Enright. That, they say,
would present many conflicts of interest.
"That's a red herring," Slaton said.
"There is no hidden conflict. I cannot hear
[public defender] cases but that's only one
slice of the pie, and not a particularly
large slice. There are a lot of other cases.
The case load is divided up now, and it
wasn't done for me."

Tegan Slaton
A Pennsylvania native, Slaton has
lived in Florida for more than 25 years.
He moved to the Keys in late 1989. "The
fishing," he said.
Slaton began practicing law in 1991,
handling civil and criminal cases. He was
named the first magistrate of Monroe
County's Traffic Court in 1999 and held
the position until last year.
He has served as a prosecutor in state


child-support cases and
S for Key West munici-
Spal code-enforcement
.TV violations.
As a certified medi-
ator and special master,
he has handled civil,
family and estate cases
since 1999. Campaign
SLATON information credits
Slaton with "initiating
more family law actions than almost all of
the other combined attorneys in Monroe
County."
"I enjoy meeting the great variety of
people down here, from all walks of life,"
Slaton said.
Although he would be prohibited from
hearing public-defender cases, Slaton said
that still leaves about 40 percent of criminal
cases in addition to civil and family cases.
"There is quite a bit to do," he said.
"Some of our judges now handle almost
no criminal cases."
"This is not new to me," he said. "I look
at it as the culmination of my career, a pro-
motion from traffic court to civil court."

Mary Vanden Brook
Vanden Brook
earned her law degree
from the Marquette
University School of
SLaw, and served as a
S public' defender in
Wisconsin for five
years.
She moved to the
Keys with her relation-
VANDEN BOOK ship partner of 28 years
in 1988 and went into private practice han-
dling civil, domestic and criminal cases.
She worked with the Guardian Ad
Litem program from 1990 to 95, becom-
ing director of the program that counsels
juveniles in the judicial system.
Vanden Brook spent a decade with the
local Family Court as manager and mag-
istrate, then became Circuit Court admin-
istrator in 2005.
"I truly care about the quality of our
courts, and the future of the Family Court
in particular," she said. Family Court han-
dles divorces, custody and support cases,
with one judge following a family's case
to its conclusion.
"We could do better handling juvenile-
delinquency cases," she said. "We tend to
treat kids like little adults, but they're not.
Whatever happens [legally] needs to hap-
pen quickly because the longer it takes,
the less meaningful the response is going
to be."

Acevedo claims success, opponent claims waste


Experience,
district debt
chief issues
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


The race for Monroe
County schools superintendent
is boiling down to money, and
which candidate can better
spend it or in some cases
not spend it.
Incumbent Democrat-Randy
Acevedo, a Key West native
finishing his first four-year
term as the School District's
chief, points to higher student
test scores and graduation
rates, and teacher salary raises
during a time when the dis-
trict's overall budget, and resi-
dents' taxes, shrank.
But Republican challenger
Fred Colvard, a Marathon resi-
dent and longtime school
administrator in Florida and
elsewhere, says Acevedo is
spending the district into a
deficit, where more money is
going to administrators rather


than teachers in the classroom.
"I haven't changed my mes-
sage," Colvard said. "I am
really concerned about us
being able to sustain what our
system has done. If we contin-
ue to have all of the runaway
spending we have, we can't
sustain the teachers and the
programs and improve the dis-
trict."
The district has run up debt
of $6.4 million over the past
four years, and Colvard said he
expects more cuts in tax rev-
enue and state funding to hit
soon as property assessments
continue to decrease through-
out the state.
Acevedo, however, says the
district's debt was necessary to
construct three fiew schools in
the Upper, Middle and Lower
Keys and two new schools to
come..And the debt is manage-
able, he says.
"I'm very comfortable with
where we are. We are in a very
good financial situation,"
Acevedo said. "We're not
going to ask for anything that's


beyond our
means. We
have a plan in
place to repay
that debt,
which puts
the bricks and
mortar on the
ground for
O our students
today and
allows us to pay it off respon-
sibly."
Acevedo. also points to the
district's reserves, which at 6.4
percent of the budget are
greater than the 5 percent man-
dated by the School Board.
Colvard says the reserves are
still too low.
"Reoccurring expenses
coming out of a reserve fund is
ridiculous," Colvard said. "In
the good [financial] -times,
money was flowing in and we
were still in the red. Now we
don't have money flowing in,
and what are we going to do?"
This year, Acevedo said he
trimmed his proposed operat-
ing budget millions'of dollars
to get to the final figure of
$90.4 million. This year's tax

property
value is 1.5
percent less
than last
year's rate
and well
below the
rollback rate,
which would generate the
same tax revenue this year as
last year.
"Other school districts and
municipalities and agencies
are cutting calories and posi-
tions in order to balance the
budget," Acevedo said.
"We've been able to balance
the budget, give raises and cut
taxes, and we're going to need
that kind of experience in the
coming years."
While Acevedo touts his
local budget and administra-
tive experience, Colvard cites
his 36 years in education as a
teacher, coach, athletic direc-
tor, principal and superintend-
ent.
Much of that experience
came in a school district in
West Virginia, where he rose
from a teacher to deputy super-
intendent.
Locally, Colvard served as
principal at Marathon High
School in -2002 and 2003 but
left after he was injured while
breaking up. a fight, he said.
Longtime Marathon resi-
dent Brian Schmitt, owner of
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real
Estate, said Colvard's experi-
ence, specifically from outside
of the Keys, is what drew his
support.
"The School District is
administratively top heavy,"
Schmitt said. "I think there
needs to be a significant


change, and I think that's very
difficult to do with a superin-
tendent that is entrenched in a
bureaucracy that is really cen-
tered in Key West."
Mike Lannon, who was the
Keys superintendent who
appointed Colvard as
Marathon principal, said the
current times warrant another
term for Acevedo.
"He's right in the midst of
Florida's worst time ever,"
said Lannon, now superintend-
ent in St. Lucie County. "If
you ask me is it time to make a
change, I would say no.
Absolutely, unequivocally no.
Randy understands the Keys
issues intimately well."
Acevedo points to recent
increases in Keys students
scores in the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test, which have resulted in all
but one Keys school getting an
"A" rating from the state.
Monroe County has also
moved from 33rd to ninth in
the state in its graduation rate.
"I focus on trying to point
out to voters what we have
accomplished," Acevedo said.
"When you see what a person
has accomplished, you know a
person is capable of doing it
again."
But Colvard said Acevedo
has focused too much on meas-
uring student achievement
with many unnecessary tests,
which take away from time in
the classroom. But ultimately,
he said misspending has to be
voters' main concern.
"Do you want your children
to be able to have the programs
they need? And do.you want to
have the teachers we need?"
Colvard said. "I keep hearing,
'spend, spend, spend.' Well,
my spending is for the kids."

The presidential contest
between John McCain and
Barack Obama has spurred the
interest in this year's vote, which
also includes numerous local
races for Monroe County
Commission, sheriff and state
attorney, among other offices.
In 2004, 77 percent of eligible
Monroe County voters cast bal-

"Any time you get over 75
percent, that is remarkable,"
Sawyer said. "I think we'll get
anywhere from 75 to 80 percent
turnout this year."
Just since Oct. 1, more than
1,000 new voters have registered
in Monroe County. "Yes, you
could say that's something of, a
surge," Sawyer said.
According to the most recent
numbers, about 38 percent of reg-
istered Monroe County voters are
Republicans, and 36 percent are
Democrats. About 22 percent
don't declare any party affiliation
and 4 percent register in other
parties,
Thirty-seven new voters have
been, flagged by the state
Division of Elections as not hav-

records. All have been contacted
by the local elections office to
advise them.
"'We will do everything we
can to make sure these people's

they show up on Election Day,

Fine brought down to $10K


Woman faced
$1.47 million
in code case
By RYAN McCARTHY

The Monroe County
Commission reduced a Key
Largo mobile-home owner's
$1.47 million code violation bill
to just $10,000 Wednesday.
The county charged that
Isolino and Armando Souto, who
own a lot at Manatee Cove
Condos in Key Largo, made sev-
eral improvements to her proper-


ty without permits.
Among the non-permitted
work: Adding a wooden deck
around the mobile home, build-
ing a tiki hut, adding a shed and
installing lighting around a dock
area.
Fines began accruing on July
22, 2005, on four cases to the
tune of $200 per day per viola-
tion and continued until the
couple corrected each violation
earlier this year. County attor-
neys have already spent more
than 200 hours working on the
four cases.

the first case alone, which
involves five code violations,
$383,918 for another and
$213,518 for the final two.
Commissioner George
Neugent questioned how a resi-
dent could ever be fined in excess
of $1 million.
"I think they're good people
and I've always said the punish-
ment is in the process and com-
pounded by what the cost is.
However, we have rules that need
to be respected," Neugent said.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
made the motion to settle the case
for $10,000 because County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton said
that is the amount invested in
pursuing the case. The motion
was unanimously approved.
"This has been a comedy of
errors through the county, the
commission, Mr. Mulick and the
Soutos. We're all at fault," she
said. Nick Mulick is the attorney
who represents the Soutos.
In May, the County
Commission passed a resolution
that says Code Enforcement staff
can't settle cases for less than 25
percent of the fines. If staff does
want to do that, the County
Commission must approve.


Attorney: $104K

will be paid back


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A former Islamorada realty
manager charged with defraud-
ing clients of $104,122 has
pledged to return the money, her
defense attorney said this week.
Cristal Coleman, 34, former-
ly of Cristal Clear Rentals, faces
arraignment Tuesday morning
in front of Monroe County
Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia
on charges of scheming to
defraud and failing to pay state
sales taxes. She entered a writ-
ten not-guilty plea this week.
"There was never any intent
to defraud anybody," said
Coleman's attorney, Hal
Schuhmacher.
"Cristal Coleman is commit-
ted to repaying anyone who is
owed money," Schumacher said.
Coleman was arrested Oct.
10 on a warrant obtained by
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office Investigator Chris Weber.
When Coleman closed her
Islamorada vacation-rental


office in May, several property
owners weren't paid rent money
handled by Coleman. A number
of vacationers said their
deposits or advance payments to
rent private residences were
gone.
Among creditors is Florida,
which says the company owes
$39,478 in sales taxes that were
collected but not forwarded to
the state from November 2006
to February 2007. That's on top
of the $104,122 Coleman's
accused of misappropriating.
The fraud charge against
Coleman says she improperly
emptied escrow accounts when
she closed her office in May.
A letter sent to clients said
that "due to a bad business cli-
mate, Cristal Clear Rentals can-
not stay in business and has no
funds to pay any additional
debts," according to the arrest
affidavit.
Among those receiving the
letter was Monroe County Tax
Collector Danise Henriquez.

Drug tests likely ending


Pribramsky
acknowledges
'it's a joke'
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

A longstanding drug-testing
program for student athletes
could end this year, as Monroe
County School Board members
said money used to fund the
program could be better used
to tutor Keys athletes.
"I certainly like the idea of
putting [money] back towards
our athletes," said Super-
intendent Randy Acevedo, who
heard a consensus from the
school board at Tuesday's
meeting to axe the current test-
ing program.
Acevedo said the program.
was instituted in the mid-1990s
during Mike Lannon's tenure
as superintendent. The pro-
gram, which costs $20,000 per
year, dictates that 25 percent of
a high school's athletes in each
sport are randomly tested for
common recreational drugs
like marijuana, cocaine, ecsta-
sy and alcohol.
If a student tests positive, he
or she is suspended for a cer-
tain time from that sport and
possibly school and are entered
into a counseling program, said
Pedro Fraga, the district's busi-
ness 'and fiscal services direc-
tor.
District staff said of the
dozens of students randomly
tested last year, only four test-
ed positive. None of those stu-
dents were at the Keys' largest
school, Key West High School.
"I talked to a lot of coaches
and most of the athletic direc-
tors," board Chairman Steve
Pribramsky said. "I think
they'll tell you off the record
this is kind of a joke. This is in
no way a deterrent. Kids that
want to beat it can beat it, and
the rest of them don't care.
"We might as well spend 20
grand in posters saying don't
do drugs. It would be just as
effective," he added. "I pro-
pose we divvy it up to the three
[high] schools with the stipula-
tion this has to go to help" stu-
dent athletes.
Pribramsky had previously
supported the idea of expand-
ing testing to students partici-
pating in other extracurricular


activities, such as band,
because the current system
unfairly targeted athletes.

Budget forecast
Also Tuesday, Acevedo pre-
sented a preliminary budget
outlook for the next three fiscal
years that showed the district
needs.to cut about $4 million in
expenditures.
The cuts, Acevedo said, are
necessary in order to fund the
proposed construction of a new
Plantation Key School and new
Horace O'Bryant Middle
School without dipping too far
into the district's reserve funds.
Acevedo projected the dis-
trict's operating budget at
$86.5 million in 2009-10 and
2010-11 and $87.7 million in
2011-12. The current 2008-09
budget was approved last
month at $90.5 million.
The proposed cuts are gen-
erally identified as $1.5 million
in instructional salaries, $1.5
million in administrative and
support salaries and $1 million
in non-personnel cuts in con-


tracts, travel expenses and sup-
plies.
"We made a priority of not
cutting classroom teachers,"
Acevedo said.
These cuts don't consider
any potential cuts likely to
come from the state legislature
when it convenes after the
November election, Acevedo
said. He said he plans to
address those when they come,
possibly by not replacing per-
sonnel who leave the district
during the year.
On Tuesday, Pribramsky
asked Acevedo if he "disre-
garded" the board's earlier
direction to bring the operating
budget down to $80 million.
Acevedo said he. based the
budgets on projections for
future property and sales taxes,
which is where the district
receives the bulk of its fund-
ing:
"We had some backup mate-
rial that showed property val-
ues not going down as bad,
where we would end up with
an $80 million budget,"
Acevedo said.

Commerce chief
weighs concerns
about grouper rule
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Three Florida Keys fisher-
men- took their appeal on a
grouper ban to the highest level
Friday.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce
Carlos Gutierrez spent about 35
minutes on a telephone confer-
ence call with charter captains
Bill Kelly and Andy Griffiths
and commercial fishing repre-
sentative Scott Zimmerman,
along with U.S. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen.
Reporters were not permitted
to listen to the conference call.
"I told the secretary that with
the stroke of pen, he can do
things that nobody else can right
now," Kelly said.
Gutierrez closed the call by
saying he wouldn't take imme-
diate action on information he
heard Friday-"but there will be
follow-through," Kelly said.


"He thanked us for taking the
time to express our interests."
Kelly said Ros-Lehtinen took
an active role. "Ileana pressed
our exceptionally well," he said.
"She knew the positions and
was very clear."
Ros-Lehtinen seconded the
point that the pending Jan. 1-
April 30 closure on red and
black grouper in federal Atlantic
waters could have grave finan-
cial repercussions since it
occurs at the height of South
Florida's tourism season, Kelly
said.
Gutierrez was asked to
remove red and black grouper
from the four-month closure that
was forwarded originally to pro-
tect gag grouper.
Gag grouper are considered
overfished, but are species sel-
dom caught in the Florida Keys.
Red and black grouper, by
contrast, rank among the most
coveted food fish in South
Florida.
The South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council and the
National Marine Fisheries
Service extended to closure to


red and black grouper because
the "best science available"
indicates they also are over-
fished.
Kelly told Gutierrez that the
reports cited for red and black
grouper are preliminary ,esti-
mates made seven years ago.
A full assessment report
would be about 400, pages he
said. "These are reports are 13
pages," Kelly said.
The Keys fishermen urged
Gutierrez to make sure the black
grouper study begins and ends
during 2009, so appropriate
action may be taken.
On Wednesday, about a
dozen fishermen most from the
charter industry met with
National Marine Fisheries
Service regional manager Roy
Crabtree in Islamorada.
"It was a great discussion but
nothing definite came out of it,"
Kelly said.
Rodney Barreto, a part-time
Upper Keys resident who is
chairman of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, recently told Keys
fishermen that the state has "no
plans" to extend the grouper
closure to state waters.

A Lower Matecumbe Key

Garrett recommended there be

TIF board likely to become official


Seven appointees
would allocate
special tax fund
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

On Sept. 16, the Key West City
Commission voted to remove the
Bahama Conch Community Land
Trust as the'city-ordained redevel-
opment agent in Bahama Village
and replace it with a seven-mem-
ber board.
Now, the idea of an appointed
board to allocate tax-incremental
funding is resurfacing via ordi-
nance. The commission is sched-
uled to vote Tuesday on the first
reading of a measure that would
establish the board and outline
the terms of eligibility. ,
"The board's a good thing,"
said Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district includes
Bahama Village. "We should've
had a board set up like that when
the two sides of the TIF came up."
The proposed board, to be
called the Key West
Redevelopment Trust Fund
Advisory Committee, would con-


sist of seven people., one each
appointed by a commissioner and
the mayor. To be eligible, an
appointee would have to live in
Lopez's District 6 or be an
"active member" of a social,
recreational, religious or similar
group in the district.
The so-called TIF.money is a
special property tax fund that can
be used only for redevelopment
projects in Bahama Village. At
the beginning of the current fiscal
year, there was about $1..2 million
in the fund. So far this year, Land
Trust has received $455,724 from
the fund to repay development
fees dating as far back as 2000.
Ongoing questions about the
Land Trust's accountability for the
money led the City Commission
to decide to replace the trust with
an independent board. Land Trust
President -Jim Marquardt hopes
it's a good solution.
"Time will tell," he said. "Our
desire is that it will be fair and
equitable for all concerned,
including BCCLT. We have been
consulted about nominating an
individual. We have made a rec-
ommendation."


Also on tap for the commis-
sion, which meets at 6 p.m.
Tuesday at Old City Hall:
A vote on a second reading
of an ordinance that would allow
tenants at the Key West Bight at
the Historic Seaport to have a
voice on the Key West Bight
Management District Board. The
board oversees businesses in the
bight and makes recommenda-
tions' to the commission about
upkeep, maintenance and devel-
opment direction.
"There's always a possibility
for conflict. They [tenants] know
what they need down there to be
successful," said Commissioner
Bill Verge, whose district includes
the bight. "Let's give it a try."
Jack Anderson, a bight tenant
who has been operating a busi-
ness on Caroline Street for 22
years, said, "We have our hand on
the pulse of what's happening. I
support this resolution."
A resolution to rename the
bicycle and pedestrian path along
Palm Avenue and North
Roosevelt Boulevard as Jim
Malcolm Way in honor 'of
Malcolm, who died Oct. 6. He
was the city's bicycle arid pedes-
trian coordinator.


A resolution accepting a bid
from the Ebsary Foundation Co.
not to exceed $661,200 for the
construction of a floating pedes-
trian bridge to connect the Outer


Mole Pier and the East Quay
Wall: It's so cruise ship passen-
gers would no longer have to be
transported from the ships into the
city through U.S. Navy property.


Five years ago the Mosquito Control
Budget was $10 million now it's
$20 million but it only costs $8 to
$10 million to spray and protect us.

Board fires Douglass


Ours is a beautiful case

of mother-daughter

bonding.
Jackie Igner. Owner Fish Tales Restaurant, Marathon
and Keli Eigner Pediatric Nurse
"Kelly was bothered by her uneven teeth and didn't want to go
through two years of braces. She went to Dr. Troxel who suggested
bonding on three of her teeth. The results were amazing. So amazing
that I went to Dr. Troxel and had eight teeth bonded. My customers
tell me that I look so much younger and that I smile a lot more.
Normally you'd say that a daughter has her mother's smile, but I can
now say that I have my daughter's smile.
Thanks to Dr. Troxel."


Crane Point
director earned
too much money
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com

Keith Douglass was fired
Tuesday as the executive
director of Crane Point
Hammock in Marathon -
apparently because he was too
valuable.
"As excellent as he was, he
was making more money than
we can afford," Florida Keys
Land and Sea' Trust board
Chairman Lynn Mapes said.
He said Douglass earned "sub-
stantially more than $75,000"
per year.
The Land and Sea Trust
owns Crane Point.
But Douglass said he hasn't
taken a paycheck in two
months because of the nation-
wide economic downturn and
that he told his staff he
planned to reduce his salary by
20 percent. He said he is sad-
dened and surprised by the
move.


"We were in the middle of
putting $1 million into improv-
ing the appearance. The result
is we were down to the wire.
financially," said Douglass,
hired in March 2006.
New Executive Director
Audrey Moir will not be paid.
The former Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce execu-
tive director will take over for
Douglass on Monday and work
pro bono until December.
"She offered that," Mapes
said. "We said December and
she said that she wanted to get
started.
"While we were still
healthy and we have money in
the bank and the payroll is
paid, we figured we had to pre-
empt any decline that might
come," Mapes said. "None of
us wanted to do it, but you
have to do what you have to do
for Crane Point."
The board hopes to restore
the historic Crane House and
open bunkrooms to more than
40 students as part of a revital-.
ized education program. The
Marathon City Council recent-


ly approved the sale of 15
transferable development
rights to Old Town Key West
Development owner Ed Swift,
which are expected to help
fund the project.
But Mapes said the sale of
those development rights will
take time and that "grants are
drying up like crazy."
"There are bureaucracies
involved and I don't need to
tell you what that means to the
time frame," he said.
Douglass said his experi-
ence at Crane Point was posi-
tive and he praised work done
by the board, staff and volun-
teers.
"We'll just chalk it up to a
tough economic situation.
There's no doubt in my mind
that the future at Crane Point is
very bright," he said. "I'm
very sad I won't be directly a
part of it."
Mapes said Moir increased
membership and revenue dur-
ing her time at the chamber
and that she came highly rec-
ommended for the job..
"People that knew her while
she was there ar6 just effusive
with compliments," he said.

Circle Ks get a facelift


New walk-in
beer coolers
and gas pumps

Keynoter and
Keys Sunday Staff

Who said anything about a
slow economy? Convenience
store chain Circle K is making a
big investment in the Florida
Keys, spending about $500,000
to remodel several of its stores
here, according to the manager
of one.
The store at 11100 Overseas
Highway in Marathon recently


reopened after being closed for
a four-week renovation. The
standout feature is. the walk-in
beer cooler. Two men walked
toward the cooler in the
Marathon store on Wednesday
evening, looked at the freezer
flaps, and the sign inviting them
to walk in and choose their own
beer. And then they looked at
one another. "Awesome," they
said in unison.
Other revamped stores are at
1890 N. Roosevelt Blvd. and
3032 N. Roosevelt Blvd. in Key
West, and at mile marker 102.5
in Key Largo. The next Circle K
store scheduled for renovation


is in Marathon at the corner of
U.S. 1 and Sadowski Causeway.
That store is slated for tempo-
rary closure near the end of
November. Plans are to remodel
the interior and add gas pumps.
Circle K stores in the Keys
and elsewhere have been
switching over to Shell gasoline
since signing an agreement with
Shell Oil Products two years
ago.
SThere are 10 Circle K stores
in the Florida Keys. The parent
company of Circle K is
Alimentation Couche-Tard of
Canada.
Most of.the Florida stores
are overseen by an office near
Tampa.


Will Fantasy Fest be a bomb?


Hotels drop rates
with rooms
still unsold
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Managers of hotels and inns in
Key West say this is looking like.
the worst year for Fantasy Fest
since Hurricane Wilma hit in 2005.
"It has been very bad...We're
already seeing people canceling
next year because of the eeono-
mny," says Jennifer Simmons of


Inn Touch Reservations, a com-
pany affiliated with the Key West
Innkeeper's Association.
Anne Perina, general manager
of the Courtyard by Marriott on
North Roosevelt Boulevard, says
reservations for Fantasy Fest were
humming along until the last week
of September. "We had a strong
start and now we're seeing no
activity at all. None whatsoever."
She can pinpoint, in fact, the very
day that everything changed. "The
29th of September it just came to
a hall,"she told the IKeynotr.


As of Thursday, the hotel still
had 20 rooms available for Oct.
23, two nights before the Oct. 25
Fantasy Fest parade, and had
dropped the minimum-stay
requirement. The hotel originally
was requiring a three-night stay
minimum. That was dropped to
two nights before being dropped
altogether.
No hotel or inn polled by the
Keynoter this week had yet sold
out for the big Fantasy Fest
weekend Thursday, Oct. 23,
through Saturday, Oct. 25. And

Plenty of rooms available


HOTELS / From 19

most had already reduced mini-
mum-stay requirements and room
rates. At the Island City House on
William Street, where four of the
inn's 20 rooms are still available
for next Thursday, the four-night
minimum has been dropped to a
two-night minimum. Rooms are
going for $370 a night.
At Ambrosia on Fleming
Street, the clerk told the Keynoter
that the five-night minimum has
dropped to a thre'e-night mini-
mum, with rooms going for about
$300 a night. "We're being flexi-
ble at this point," he said, hinting
that rooms will probably go for
less than $300.
There are a few hotels that are
still looking forward to a full house
for Fantasy Fest. At the Marquesa
Hotel on Fleming Street there was
just one room available as of
Thursday evening, and also just
one room remaining at Simonton
Court, according to employees
answering the phones at those
properties. The clerk at Simonton
Court said the available room is
small and going for $250 a night,
with a five-night minimum. The


La Concha Hotel on Duval and a
number of bed and breakfasts are
reporting that they're sold out for
all three big nights next weekend.
But the overall picture on the
island is not good.
The Key West Chamber of
Commerce polled its members on
Wednesday and found that just
four of 37 hotels and motels had
sold out for Thursday night, two
nights before the big Fantasy Fest
parade, and just four had sold out
their rooms for the Friday night
before the parade.
"It's a little late," says Harold


Wheeler, director of the Tourist
Development Council, of hotels
that are just now dropping rates
and minimum-stay requirements.
"The time period has been
missed with the advertising that's
been running."
The 10-day Fantasy Fest cele-
bration was started 29 years ago
by a Key West businessman to
generate tourism in the slow fall
season. It is seen as the start of
the tourist season in the Florida
Keys, and also the bell wether
that indicates how strong the
upcoming tourist season will be.

Why you should wear a costume this year


By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


'The opposite
of what you
were is what
you are now'
John McBride

"I don't know how many
masks comprise your individual
ego, but I have several of them,"
said the mask maker John
McBride to the small group
gathered to hear his lecture at the
Armory in Key West on Friday
night.
McBride spoke for almost
two hours, and there was hardly
a stir from the audience all the
while.
It wasn't the range of the lec-
ture, which went all the way
back in time to cave drawings of
masks, and touched on the
meaning of the word Carnival
and the importance of that festi-
val to the soul.
SAnd it wasn't in the way he
brought the discussion of masks
around to our current crisis: We
have worn the masks of expert
Wall Street investors and our
bluff has been called!
It was his exhortation to those
present to take masks seriously,
to approach with utmost serious-
ness the choosing of a costume.
"I try to tell people: Think
what you would really like to
be," says McBride. Fantasy Fest,
he said, is an opportunity a
chance to create, for one week,
an "artificial society" made up of
people who've transformed
themselves into something they
are not.


'I have to
admit I like
horrible
masks'


John McBride opened a small
store in Key West in 1994 called
Maskerville, out of which he and
his partner began selling their:'
maiy'-feathierd' masks', every '-


one of them a work of art. It was
almost immediately successful.
McBride relocated to the Florida
countryside north of Tampa in
2002, where he makes masks *
under contract to Cirque du
Soleil. He is back in Key West
this week and next working out
of a makeshift studio at The
Studios of Key West in the
Armory at 600 White St. You
can watch him work, and buy
one of his masks there from 10
a.m. to 10 p.m. daily or at Blue
Heaven during the Goombay
street fair today, Oct. 18. If you
can't get to Key West, see
McBride's masks at
www.maskerville.com.

Marathon now
9-9, Key West
falls to 1-12
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

In the solitude of 6:30 a.m.,
the Key West High School vol-
leyball team looked sharp during
a practice Tuesday at the Bobby
Menendnez Gym. "We played
so good," sophomore Jess
Bodmer said.
That evening, with more than
100 spectators in the same gym,
the Conchs went down meekly,
never leading in losing three
consecutive games to a hustling
Marathon team, 25-12, 25-21,
25-11.
"Horrible," Bodmer said.
"Absolutely horrible."
It was the llth consecutive
defeat for the 1-12 Conchs and
their third loss to Marathon in
five weeks.

The Dolphins, who improved
to 9-9, executed perfectly their
plan of quickly shutting out Key
West and getting back on their

They did what they were sup-
posed to do," coach Kelly
Eigner said. "We passed, dug
everything, set well and hit. I
was very proud."
Shelby Kuck set the tone for
the Dolphins by opening the first
game with a kill. Behind the hit-
ting of Kelley Struyf and
Morgan Longstreth, the lead
quickly soared to 12-1 and then
to 20-3. Only some fine late

Monica Caceres (five consecu-

After the Key West High

would, after a long dry spell, go
on to the regionals, emotions
reigned at the Biltmore Hotel
course, site of Tuesday's District

"The kids were all jumping


around," coach Nora Laubenstein
said. "My assistant coach Stev,-
Dion got teary-eyed, Todd (senior
Blake Oropeza's father) got teary-
eyed and I got teary-eyed. We had
to put on sunglasses."
Laubenstein, who joined the

took over as head coach in 2006,
said it has been six years since the
Conchs last reached the regional

Stuyf, Kuck dominate the net


VOLLEYBALL/ From 35

Conchs to get to within 13-12. A
tap by setter Sarah Melia and
two aces by Ashley Hooper later
extended the lead to 18-12, but
the Conchs scored eight of the
next 12 points to trail, 22-20.
After a time-out, the
Dolphins closed out the game on
a service error and two points by
Vanessa Sardina.
In the third game, with Struyf


and Kuck dominating at the net,
Melia serving aces and scrappy
defenders such as Jeanette
Betancourt running down balls,
the Dolphins rolled to an 18-4
lead. Freshman Shanyia Watson
led the Conchs with three points.
After the match, Key West
coach Jessy Hulme herded her
players into an equipment room
where, for 15 minutes behind a
closed door, she told them that
they were better than they have
shown and to forget about their


record of two victories in two
seasons
"She said she was sorry for us
not being able to experience that
air of winning." said Bodmer,
not quite believing how a long
day, which had started so enthu-
siastically, had turned out.
The Conchs, who are playing
in a tournament this weekend at
Florida Christian, will return to
face Monsignor Pace at 5 p.m.
Tuesday in the last home match
of the season.

Key West was led by sopho-
more Jack Lockwood, who,
despite a sore knee and an erratic
long game, shot a 78.
"His short game was wonder-
ful," Laubenstein said. "He would
chip to within three or four feet of
the putt. But it was a sl6w green
and sometimes he hit his putts too
hard."
Putting remained a problem for
the whole team. "We freak out [on
the greens]," Laubenstein said.
Senior Daniel Margil followed
Lockwood with an 83, senior
Blake Oropeza had an 85 and
freshman Joseph Arazi shot 88.
"Everybody had to deal vith
the weather or shut down, and we
dealt with it," Laubenstein said.
"I saw a lot of great shots."
The Conchs will play at 8 a.m.
Monday in the 1A regional tour-
nament at the Inverrary Country
Club in Lauderhill. "It's going to
be tough, but anything can hap-
pen," said Laubenstein.

Island Christian falls to Calusa


Strong start,
weak finish
for the Eagles
Keynoter Staff

Island Christian School's
Lady Eagles started strong
Tuesday but faded in a double-
header loss to Calusa Prep.
The Lady Eagles (2-8) won


the first two games of the
opening match, both by 25-22
scores, but the host Colts.
rebounded to win the next two,
25-16, 25-13.
That forced a tiebreaker that
went down to the wire before
Calusa pulled it out, 15-13.
"We should have won the
last game and the match but it
just didn't happen," said ICS


coach Sheryl Yost. "It was dis-
appointing. The girls were
down by several points and
fought their way back."
The hangover continued
through the second match,
swept by Calusa, 25-12, 25-13,
25-16.
"We had good serving by
Brittany Messinger and a lot of
really good defensive
Momentss" Yost said. "We were
missing one of our regular set-


ters, Melanie Meroni, due to
sickness. Jen Subic became the
second setter."
Island Christian traveled to
a Friday doubleheader at
Colonial Christian (results
pending at press time).
The Eagles finish the regu-
lar season this week with trips
to Miami Christian and
Westwood Christian before the
District 16-A Tournament
begins Oct. 27.
