Fantasy Fest
events deluged
with downpours
By SEAN KINNEY

The 29th annual Fantasy
Fest-isn't rained out this year
- but it sure has been, getting
rained on.
People streamed out of the
Casa Marina Resort under
umbrellas Wednesday evening
when a light rain turned into a
heavy pour and doused those
participating in and watching
the Pet Masquerade -and
Parade.
And most of the .spectators

House Resort picked up beach
blankets and left after the fifth
downpour of the evening
began around 10:30 p.m.
The $120-a-ticket dinner on
the patio that preceded the
show had been interrupted
three times by rain. And each
time, waiters ran back out
with dry napkins and towels,
and diners sat back down to
have another go at dinner.
The rain continued Friday,
and although it had stopped by
5 p.m. when the Masquerade
March parade through Old
Town was to begin, the skies
were gloomy and the streets
wet.
So what can revelers expect
tonight, when the big parade

Burnett to get


report card


$1OK raise
for manager
is possible
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett could be in line for
a pay raise Tuesday, provided
council members like what
they've seen during his first six
months on the job.
Burnett earns $90,000 annual-
ly. According to his contract
negotiated with City Attorney
Jimmy Morales, if he gets a pos-
itive 180-day evaluation, his pay
jumps to $100,000.
The contract took effect May
1 and runs through April 30,
2009 "unless terminated earlier."
The council also has the option to
extend the term for two one-year
periods.
Polled Friday, council mem-
bers are all seemingly pleased
with Burnett's performance and
his rapport with city staff.
"I'm impressed with the fact
that the transition was next to
seamless. I don't think we lost
time because we had a local per-
son that was familiar with the
issues and was able to jump in
pretty quickly," Councilwoman
Marilyn Tempest said.
Burnett replaced lifetime
Marathon resident Mike Puto,
who resigned the post Feb. 12 but
stayed- on until Burnett was in
place.


"I like
I Clyde's open
attitude with
the staff and
citizens and
he has a good
working rela-
tionship with
the council,"
BURNETT Councilman
Mike Cinque
said. He said Burnett does a good
job keeping politics out of the
office, a difficult task in a small
city.
Mayor Pete Worthington said
Burnett did well in helping the
city exceed the rollback tax rate
during budget season, despite a
large increase in the Marathon
Fire Rescue budget. The budget
allowed for three new positions
and the implementation of a
Kelly Day, which gives firefight-
ers an extra 24 hours off duty
each week.
"The $400,000 in improve-
ments to the fire department
budget was a commendable
move by Clyde. The most impor-
tant service you can have is fire,"
he said.
Councilman Don Vasil said he
is happy with Burnett's direction,
but said he is concerned with out-
side influence from "'many coun-
cil members who feel that the
city's economical situation is not
critical and continue to believe
that a business as usual approach
is acceptable."
"These questions, of course,
will be answered by the voters on
Nov. 4," Vasil said.

You knew this was coming for Fantasy Fest


Palin inflatable
arrives in time
for Fantasy Fest
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Politics make strange bedfel-
lows, and in this particular case,
that's not just a turn of phrase.
The Fairvilla Mega Store on
Front Street in Key West
received an order two days ago
of inflatable, lifesized sex dolls


bearing the
likeness of,.
Republican
vice presiden-
tial candidate
Sarah Palin.

just like the
Palin masks
PALIN that have been
selling out at
Fastbuck Freddie's on Duval
Street, they are selling quite well
-likely due to Fantasy Fest, the
ribald 10-day festival known for
its nudity and, well, almost-any-


thing-goes atmosphere.
The parade to wrap the fest is
tonight and you will likely see
the dolls adorning the floats,
since the theme of this year's
Fantasy Fest is "Pirates, Pundits
and Political Party Animals."
"We just try and bring just
fun and kind of different things
* into the store," Fairvilla manag-
er Kristen Wilson said.
David Fox, who is in Key
West visiting from Boston, said
on Friday that he was more than
likely going to purchase one of
the dolls.


"I think it's sexy as hell," he The doll is officially called
said. "I play hockey, she's- a the "This is Not Sarah Palin
hockey mom; I think we'll hit it Inflatable Love Doll." It retails
off." for around $40.

Keys head back to Cabinet


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Drafts of an agreement
between Monroe County and
the state to preserve building
permits were .still being
exchanged Friday, with a
Florida Cabinet meeting loom-
ing Tuesday.
Monroe officials will be in
Tallahassee on Tuesday to ask
Gov. Charlie Crist and the rest
of the Cabinet to endorse. the
county's latest proposal.
In exchange for more intense
efforts to meet Monroe County
comprehensive-plan goals, the
state may agree to hold off on
wielding its authority to cut the
number of building permits the
Keys can issue.
"In general, I think every-
thing essentially has been
agreed on," said Assistant
County Attorney Bob
Shillinger.
"There are certain small
tweaks in the language that are
being completed over these last
couple of days," Shillinger said,
"but there seems to a general
consensus among the county,
environmental groups and all
the different stakeholders."
Pledges by Monroe County
in the draft proposal likely will
include:
Updating the hurricane-
evacuation plan.
Updating the tier land-
mapping system for undevel-
oped land.
+ Continuing to work on
completing sewer systems.
Working to "expand and
enhance" efforts to acquire or


protect environmentally sensi-
tive lands.
To achieve the last goal,
Keys officials have suggested
seeking countywide national-
park status to protect undevel-
oped lands without leaving
county taxpayers liable for
property-taking judgments in
lawsuits filed by property own-
ers denied permits to build.
The park proposal is not
expected to be discussed
Tuesday, Shillinger said.
"That is more of a long-term
endeavor, a piece of the larger
puzzle," he said. "It's outside
the scope of [the Cabinet acting
as the state] Administration
Commission."
County officials say park sta-
tus for sensitive undeveloped
Keys land would help with the
estimated $1.2 billion price tag
to acquire 6,501 lots deemed
unbuildable and therefore
basically valueless to owners.
Recent judgments in takings
lawsuits have gone against the
county, leaving open the possi-
bility of massive liability for
county taxpayers down the road.
The draft report from the
Cabinet staff: "Monroe County
stakeholders have reached con-
sensus on additional issues
relating to the protection of sen-
sitive lands and affordable
housing, which need to be
addressed for the removal of the
designation as the Florida Keys
Area of Critical State Concern.
This consensus includes the
need for legislation. Staff rec-
ommends the [Cabinet] give
guidance to state agencies to


work in partnership with
Monroe County and others to
address these issues."
The Area of Critical State
Concern designation gives the
state added oversight over
Monroe County development
decisions. It was imposed a
quarter-century ago when the
state declared that too much
building was permitted to pre-
serve the Keys environment.

Keys Opinion


Ros-Lehtinen gives Keys solid representation


Keys voters may not be
accustomed to much of a
campaign in the 18th
Congressional District. That's
because incumbent Rep.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, 56, has
drawn only token opposition
for most of her previous cam-
paigns.
But this year is different.
Her Democratic opponent
Annette Taddeo, 41, is an
energized campaigner who
brings a strong business back-
ground and key ties to Miami-
Dade's Hispanic community.
Keys residents have seen


more of both Ros-Lehtinen
and Taddeo this summer than
anyone can ever remember
from previous campaigns. And
Taddeo has advanced clear-cut
differences on issues and criti-
cized Ros-Lehtinen's mostly
party-line voting record.
Party histrionics aside, we
think Ros-Lehtinen deserves
another term because she's
been far more engaged in
Florida Keys issues than any
of her recent predecessors rep-
resenting us in Congress. And
while we quibble with her on
some Republican party-line


votes, her overall record.is one
that any moderate would and
should embrace.
We particularly single out
her vote against President
Bush's stand on the hotly
debated issue of lifting the
ban on offshore drilling. This
summer, Bush made that a lit-
mus test for members of
Congress and a direct chal-
lenge to the .House and
Senate's Democratic leaders.
Florida's own Senate dele-
gation was split along party
lines on the issue, with
Republican Mel Martinez toe-


ing the GOP position and
Democrat Bill Nelson voting
against his own leadership in
a vain effort to preserve the
ban off Florida's coast.
On the House side, Ros-
Lehtinen voted with
Democrats who thought the
environmental risks of greatly
expanded offshore wells did
little to solve this nation's
energy crisis. And, worse,
failed to recognize the thou-
sands of offshore leases that
oil industry giants have failed
to exercise in the western Gulf
of Mexico, where drilling has


long been permitted.
Ros-Lehtinen has also
championed the fight to
restore federal funds for
Everglades restoration and
sewer construction funds for
the Keys. She even gets
applause at environmental
conferences for her stand in
support of clean energy initia-
tives and legislation that
would curb global warming.
This is not a rubber-stamp
Republican, especially on
environmental issues. For this
reason we endorse Ros-
Lehtinen for re-election.


Lord-Papy, Zieg best choices for Mosquito Control Board


By all rights, voters could
close their eyes and cast a
vote for District 1 Mosquito
Control Board member Joan
Lord-Papy. That's because
her challenger, Republican
Andy Williams, is likely still
in jail.
On Tuesday, Williams was
arrested for the ninth time this
year after failing yet another
court-mandated drug test.
Lord-Papy, a lifelong
Democrat, has held this seat for
16 years. That's four terms at


four years each and she's hop-
ing for a fifth this go-round.
Even though we've 'been
critical of Mosquito Control
District spending and the
board's failure to rein in
Director Edsel Fussell's
grossly padded budgets, we
simply can't have Williams, a
Republican, win by default.
So we endorse Joan Lord-
Papy and urge her to help
restore tougher fiscal control
by the board.
In the District 4 contest,


incumbent Republican Bill
Shaw, seeking a fourth four-
year term, faces a strong chal-
lenge from political newcom-
er Daniel Zieg, running as a
nonpartisan candidate. Shaw
is a former pilot for- Mosquito
Control. Zieg is a private pilot
and retired physician.
Zieg has been focused on
district spending for the past
two'years and is among the
few members of the public to
actually show up and chal-
lenge Fussell's budgets at


public hearings.
Zieg questions the district's
$8 million reserve account
and says that money belongs
to the taxpayers, not adding to
the district's capital spending
appetites.
This year, after protests
from Key West Chamber of
Commerce board members,
Zieg and others, the board
reluctantly cut $1 million
from the district's 2009 spend-
ing plan that had been ear-
marked to buy property for a


Key West operations building.
The district already spent
nearly $8 million on a grand
headquarters building and
hangar at the east end of
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
We recommend Zieg for the
District 4 seat in hopes he can
help control district spending
on edifices and concentrate
instead on funding the good
work of district biologists,
spray crews, pilots, mechan-
ics and others.


Sante would bring new energy, new ideas to appraiser's office


The race for Monroe
County property appraiser is
a classic contest of experi-
ence versus change.
While that may sound like
a sound bite from the presi-
dential contest, this one pits
32-year incumbent Ervin
Higgs against Islamorada


businessman Chris Sante.
Sante, who served three
terms as mayor of the village,
brings political savvy and
high energy to his many cam-
paign appearances. Tooling
around the Keys in a Mini
Cooper, Sante has tried to hit
every chamber of commerce,


Rotary, Elks, business group
and civic club meeting he
can.
Faced with few serious
challengers in his three-plus
decades in the public spot-
light, Higgs has run a much
quieter campaign, relying on
name recognition and his net-
work of Conch connections
to carry his re-election ban-
ner.
The Key West native is
proud of his record for pro-
ducing tax rolls that have
never been rejected by the
Florida Department of
Revenue. He's also been a
champion of Truth in
Millage, or TRIM, notifica-
tions, which give property
owners a real idea of what
taxes they'll be paying.


For nearly a decade, most
elected taxing authorities
promoted the charade that
they were cutting taxes when
they incrementally reduced
millage rates. Yet, double-
digit increases in property
values delivered more and
more money to spend each
year.
Higgs was never bashful
about blowing the whistle on
that game and deserves
thanks for that.
But we like the new ideas
and energy that Sante offers
in this election, especially his
goal of improving Web
access to property records
and investigating homestead
exemption fraud.
Sante also promises more
outreach and says he'll spend


time in the Upper Keys,
Middle Keys and Key West.
Bringing enhanced services
to the outlying offices will do
much to overcome the dis-
connect expressed by Key
Largo and Tavernier resi-
dents, who sometimes feel
disenfranchised from county
decision-makers who hunker
down in Key West.
Sante owns commercial
property and will have to
remove himself from any
conflicts, but that does not
disqualify him from .serving
as property appraiser.
We pay tribute to Higgs for
his decades of public service
and recommend Sante in this
race for bringing fresh ideas
and outreach to this key
county post.

Keys Opinion

Marathon doesn't offer much for tourists


EDITOR:
It does not surprise me that
Marathon tourism has nosedived. Why?
Well, let's put it this way: If a tourist
doesn't fish or dive, there is nothing to
do in Marathon. And the Keys are a
pretty expensive destination.
Well, I hear people say we have
Sombrero Beach and Pigeon Key and,
er, Kmart? Let's take a look at the
beach.
There are no amenities to eat lunch
there; it's just a beach and no matter
what people say, that is all it is. You
can't even buy an ice cream because
.vendors are outlawed. And Pigeon
Key has been let go so much that it
does not count for anything except a.
glance.
Let's face it, Marathon has not
kept up with the times. The tourists
expect a lot more for their dollar and
that is why they drive through
Marathon and keep heading south.
Has anyone really looked at


Marathon as you drive through it? It's
a mess. We have empty lots where
there were hotels and restaurants, run-
down garages, tired-looking and
vacant stores, a nonfunctional airport,
a beautiful firehouse, the city hall in
trailers, rundown trailer parks, empty
campgrounds and an event field for no
events and that is not even scruti-
nizing the city in detail beyond U.S. 1.
I run an entertainment company
and last year approached the city
about utilizing the events field for
one-day events and I was told outright
that the city was not interested in my
ideas or services.
Jim Rhyne is so right Marathon
does present a problem bigger than
any storm. The trouble is, the storm
moves on. Marathon and its council
haven't. And to be truthful, I don't
think a new slogan is somehow going
to be the answer-to Marathons woes.

Short lobsters as attractants is bad business


EDITOR:
I could not agree more with "Mr.
Lobster," our own Martin Moe,
regarding his opinion that the com-
mercial industry's practice of keeping
short lobsters in traps as attractants is
extremely detrimental to the health of
the fishery. The Keys are the only
place on the planet where this prac-
tice is allowed. It cannot continue.
According to the experts, with a

Liveaboard

needs help

EDITOR:
A plea for help to all Conchs: I
have a 30-foot sailboat that
Hurricane Ike dragged onto Kingfish
Shoals. Not one agency or organiza-
tion has helped me. The two salvage
operations in Key West want $350 to
pull her off, and that's the problem.
I hope and pray that some citizen
will help me. Everything I own is on
my boat. Everything. I'm on my
knees praying. Please help.
Galen D. Gibson
Key West


10 percent per month mortality rate
for these captive shorts, hundreds of
thousands of lobster die needlessly.
Sure, small lobster attract more lob-
ster, but can we afford this wasteful
practice in today's world? Maine lob-
stermen can't keep shorts, yet their
business remains healthy.
Our lobster larvae come from
upstream countries such as
Guatemala and Nicaragua, nations *
who have literally wiped out their
crawfish populations in search of a
profit. We not only suffer from that
loss of recruitment, but couple that
with constant poaching efforts both
on the commercial and recreational
side, and I seriously doubt that the
industry can remain viable. Catch
rates have been steadily declining for
years, with no turnaround in sight.
Lobsters are a public resource.
They need to be managed in a mod-
em fashion that will ensure their
future sustainability.

A law enforcement agent packs up some of the bongs seized in the Oct. 16 raid.
Authorities say a combined $1 million worth of drug paraphernalia was seized from
13 shops.

The bongs had to go; make T-shirts next


EDITOR:
The raid on the head shops has been a
long time coming. While I have often heard
people griping about visitors bringing their
children to Key West (because this is an
adult town), does that mean that common
sense and civility go out the window?
I have been in Key West since 1987 and
was stationed here prior to that. I was
always amazed at how the shop owners can
get away with exhibiting T-shirts with vul-


gar sayings and illustrations on them, and
bongs and other drug paraphernalia. Do
they really believe they are. selling these
items to people who only want to display
them because they are "unique?" The gen-
eral public is smarter than that.
I am glad they were cleaned up. So,
when are the T-shirt shops going to clean up
their act?

Stop kicking a man when he's down


EDITOR:
Sonny McCoy offered his services to the
electorate of Key West and the Florida Keys
10 times in more than 40 years. On seven
occasions, he was elected and has served 18
years in office. In this service he subjected
himself and his family to the press, negative
comments, pundits, Monday morning luar-
terbacks, the editorial pages and the anger of
those who didn't get his vote.
Eventually Sonny's service will pass into
history and within a few years new genera-
tions won't know exactly what he accom-
plished. They will not know of his push to
revitalize a deserted Duval Street in the
1970s or the establishment of a city bus
system or his unfailing support of work-
force housing and sewer projects, the hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars in free archi-
tectural and engineering services he provid-
ed, his writing of millions of dollars of
grants, or his energetic leadership for our
long-overdue new airport terminal.
When the Navy yard closed in the 1970s
and the city could not pay its bills and on at
least one occasion its workers, his early
recognition of tourism, as our only econom-
ic hope for Key West's recovery, was para-
mount forKey West's current.success.
For 18 years and those in.between, Sonny


McCoy spent a major portion of his life serv-
ing our communities with little compensation.
He didn't enrich himself or steal from us or
commit fraud and we the voters, in the major-
ity, returned him again and again to govern
us. Therefore, even if you don't think he
made every decision perfectly, this latest flur-
ry of venomous attacks against his accom-
pjishments and character is over the top.
Sonny's recent involvement in a work-
place sexual harassment claim was his
admitted retelling of his exploits and stories
in mixed company and at work. This result-
ed in a guilty verdict against the county for
allowing a hostile workplace.
In today's world, it is n6t permissible to
tell stories at work that may contain materi-
al that might make another person uncom-
fortable. On this point, I am not defending
Sonny. I don't know enough about the case
to do so effectively..I don't believe the
telling of stories or exploits with sexual
innuendo or content is acceptable at work in
any instance. But to further question his
integrity and negatively color his entire
legacy and his lifetime of service and
achievement based on this one issue is cer-
tainly not fair.

Battle on in the 18th Congressional District


Ros-Lehtinen
runs on record,
Taddeo on change
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

For the first time in as long as
anyone can remember, there's a
real race on. in the' 18th
Congressional District, which
includes all of the Keys, Miami
Beach, Homestead and many
southern Miami suburbs.
Voters will choose between
19-year incumbent U.S. Rep.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a
Republican, and Democratic
challenger Annette Taddeo, a


S iir:

businesswoman.
Taddeo has never run for
election before but has a lot of
experience in the mainland busi-
ness world, For Ros-Lehtinen,
politics has been her business for
26 years, the first seven in the
state Legislature and the rest in
Congress.
Taddeo is in the national
Democratic Party's Red to Blue
Program, which provides finarr-
cial and strategic support to can-
didates they think have a real
shot at unseating a Republican.
So this race is on the national
radar.
The job pays $169,300 annu-
ally.


Annette Taddeo
Taddeo, 41,
was born in
C ol ombi a,
where her

Anthony, a
e t disabled veter-
an who served
in Korea and,
World War II,
TADDEO f operated a hel-
icopter pilot training school and
met her mother, Elizabeth.
Taddeo was born with a cleft
palette that would require 19 sur-
geries to fully reconstruct.
Ruth Lyman refers to herself
as Taddeo's sister because
Lyman's family hosted Taddeo
her senior year of high school and


throughout college. "I know
Annette was bullied. It's hard to
have a facial deformity," Lyman
said. But, "She knows how to
overcome bullying."
Taddeo overcame in a big
way, graduating from the
University of North Alabama
studying commercial Spanish and
business administration. She
went on to found
LaunguageSpeak, a multimillion-
dollar business that provides
translating, interpreting and tutor-
ing services in more than 100 lan-
guages. She lives in Pinecrest
with her husband, Dr. Eric
Goldstein, twin 17-year-old step-
daughters and another daughter
who is almost 2.
She says the time is right for


Estes, Wigington want to restore trust


DISTRICT 1 / From I

needs to be restored.
"I'm running because of what
I've seen over the past eight years
- a terrible mismanagement of
county government, the way
money was spent," Estes says.
"For eight years now, we have
watched as our money was spent
on-projects that made the county
commissioners feel good but for
the most part were not needed,
and depleted our fund reserves."
He's referring to such things
as the new $31.6 million terminal
under construction at Key West
International Airport and the
Murray E. Nelson Government
and Cultural Center in Key
Largo, expected to cost $10.6
million or so when it's completed
before the end of the year.
"My goal is to restore trust in
county government, and part of
that is regaining the trust from the
state," Wigington says. "The state
has to trust us before they give us
money to allow us to do what we
do. That is ultimate, and it covers a
broad category of issues budg-
et, being accessible, transparency."
Where they differ is that Estes,
a 57-year-old married father of
two, looks at government as
being mainly all about customer
service, and he'd use his 18-year
career working in that area for
AT&T, and his current career
working at the Innerspace Dive
Center on Big Pine Key, to
improve constituent services.
"You have a problem with the


county, you
call your com-
missioner," he
says. "Right
now, you get,
'Call this per-
son, call that
person.' I
believe when a
ESTES person calls a
commissioner
to get something taken care of,
they've already tried the normal
route."
He says that along the cam-
paign trail, "A lot of people like
my idea of the customer service.
That idea seems to hit home."
Wigington, 48 and married,
agrees vith the philosophy of
customer service but has the
-experience of being involved in
the workings of government on
both the local and state levels that
Estes doesn't. She's says that's a
big asset.
Her past work includes over-
seeing the operational budget- at
Fort Zachary Taylor State Park
after years of volunteering with
the National Park Service at Fort
Jefferson and the Loggerhead
Key lighthouse.
After she moved from Key
West to-Stock Island, KW Resort
Utilities, a private sewer system
operator, contracted with the coun-
ty to sewer south Stock Island. The
$4.7 million project was complet-
ed in 2003, but a grand jury later
found numerous problems with
such, things as inspections and
found the county negligent in its
oversight of the project.

dealing with KW

"I had
researched
wastewater a
little when I
moved out of
the city to
Stock Island,"
Wigington
says. "This is
when the
county was
Resort. When I
realized there


were much more serious issues...
I got involved in depth for the
next two or three years, and it got
me involved in the Area of
Critical State Concern."
Overall, 13,500 equivalent
dwelling units were supposed to
be hooked up to the sewer system.
Today, years later, 400 still aren't
connected, Wigington says.
She stayed involved in moni-
toring Keys sewer plans and in
2005, attended a meeting where
the Florida Cabinet was consider-
ing how to grade Monroe County
on its progress on its 10-year
work program to, among other
things, sewer the Keys.
That was the meeting where
then-Gov. Jeb Bush famously
told then-County Commissioner
Murray Nelson that dealing with
Keys sewers on a state level "is a
pain in the butt."
"I went up to leave and [Bush]
mouthed something to me, I
don't know what it was,"
Wigington says. "What it was is
he wanted me to wait. He sent a
staff member to whisper in my
ear asking if I would wait to meet


with the governor. We talked a
good long while about those dif-
ferent issues, wastewater, Area of
Critical State Concern."
She says that led to a working
relationship.
"After that we started e-mail-
ing. I think I met with him three
or four times," Wigington says, to
discuss not only sewers but the
larger issue of the Keys' designa-
tion as an Area of Critical State
Concern. The designation means
the state has oversight of most
Keys growth and development.
"I pushed for us not to be de-
designated," she says. The
Cabinet agreed and continues
to agree.
Estes says he; too, can be a
strong voice for the Keys. He
says his work mediating with the
employee union at AT&T helped
him learn how to find common
ground in disputes.
"He's extremely personable,"
said Michael Gilchrist, manager
of the Innerspace Dive Shop.
"People like him, even when he's
telling them what they can't have.
He's not particularly dogmatic,
either. He's more likely to look at
each problem and figure it out on
its own."
Oh, and one other thing, Estes
says: It's not good to have a
County Commission whose
members are all in the same
party. The past eight years, the
commission has been made up of
only Republicans.
"One-party rule the past eight
years. -1 don't believe that's
healthy," he said.


her to take on Ros-Lehtinen, the
senior member of Florida's con-
gressional delegation.
"I took a long time," Taddeo
said, referring to her decision to
run. "I needed in my heart to
know this is what I want to do.
Can I walk away from my busi-
ness, my husband, my daughters?
It's a big life-changing decision."
Taddeo sat down with the
Keynoter and said she will work
for economic policies that require
accountability in addressing fore-
closure rates and small-business
needs while associating Ros-
Lehtinen with the Bush adminis-
tration's deregulatory economic
policy.
"If we're going to punish the
greedy Wall Street people, we
need to fire Ileana, too. Fix the
problems that, honestly, [Ros-
Lehtinen] started. It [financial
recovery] starts on Main Street
but as a small-business owner, it
is difficult to get a loan. Small-
business owners are going to be
the most effected, but in our com-
munity, they're the biggest
employer."
Taddeo's environmental views
tie into the economy. She says
renewable energy' would help the
environment while creating
American jobs, and help cut oil
imports. On that, Ros-Lehtinen
agrees.
"We need to look to the future
and invest in renewable energy,"
Taddeo said. "Let's have an ener-
gy revolution. It's a great con-
cern, which is even more reason
for us to quit our dependence on
foreign oil. I think we should
invest in brand-new jobs that
can't. be sent overseas. I think we
have -the opportunity to bring
these jobs to South Florida."
As for federal funding to help
construct central sewage systems
in the Keys, Taddeo said, "I've
said that the secret for us getting
the funding is to go through it as
an environmental issue. Our
country needs to protect the coral
reef. We need to protect it." But,
"It's always been looked at as
something the Keys needs. It
should also be protected because
our tourism depends on it."

Murphy running on decisions she's reversed

By LARRY KAHN
lkahn@keynoter.com


Incumbent Monroe County
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
says her greatest successes have
been not what she's accom-
plished, but things she helped
reverse.


"My success is not things
that went forward; it's the
things that went backward,
things that I was able to get rid
of," says Murphy, seeking her
first full four-year. term as the
Upper Keys District 5 commis-
sioner.
The Republican Murphy is
running against Key Largo resi-
dent Sal Gutierrez, not affiliated
with any political party.

involved and needs to know
what's going on. She's so pas-
sionate about politics."
Aside from her foray into
national politics, Taddeo has
been very involved in a variety
of business, service and politi-
cal organizations:
Woman Impacting Public
Policy, executive board.
+ ,Coalition of Dade
County Chambers of
Commerce, chairwoman.
League of Women
Voters, board member.
Democratic National
*Committee's Business
Counsel, national co-chair-
woman.

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
I--l The 56-
year old

Lehtinen
was born in
Havana to
'Enrique Ros
and Amanda
Adato. After
ROS-LEHTINEN the family
moved to
South Florida, she received
bachelor's and master's
degrees in education from
Florida International
University and a doctorate
from the University of Miami.
Ros-Lehtinen served in the
state House from 1982 until
1986, when she jumped to the
stite Senate and married legis-
lator Dexter Lehtirien, who
went on to serve as U.S. attor-
ney for South Florida. She has


two daughters and two
stepchildren.
With the passing of U.S.
Rep. Claude Pepper in 1989,
Ros-Lehtinen ran a successful
bid for a spot in the U.S. House
and has been serving ever
since.
Ros-Lehtinen is the ranking
member of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee and has
chaired the Africa Sub-
committee, the International
Operations and Human Rights
Subcommittee and the'Inter-
national Economic Policy and
Trade subcommittee. She is
co-chairwoman of the House
National Marine Sanctuary
Caucus.
The Ros-Lehtinen cam-
paign is betting that a loyal
constituency and a solid repu-
tation for face-to-face service
will see the incumbent through
voter reservations caused by an
unpopular president and the
challenge posed by Taddeo.
Former Monroe County
commissioner Glenn Patton
knows Ros-Lehtinen in both a
professional and personal
capacity. He says he appreci-
ates Ros-Lehtinen's efforts to
try to send federal dollars into
various Keys projects.
"It's very difficult to get
Washington's attention on
local wastewater improve-
ments," he said, but "she has
really stepped up to the plate."
Ros-Lehtinen explained to
the Keynoter her views on the
economic challenges of Monroe
County and how she can help:
"There's a lack of federal funds,
a lack of state funds and not
enough of a tax base to be able


to build upon. There's no way
for young people to stay here
and make a living. It's really
tough. We need more federal
dollars."
The congresswoman has
directed more than $35 million
in federal money to Monroe
County in her tenure in
Washington, including $11
million for sewer construction.
"I keep pushing and push-
ing and pushing my colleagues
to send money down here," she
said. "My job is to sell the
Keys to my colleagues."
Ros-Lehtinen voted against
the $700 billion bailout plan
for Wall Street the first time
around but approved the sec-
ond plan.
"What we need is trans-
parency and accountability. It's
[the economic bailout] a hefty
price tag," she said. And she
noted the impact on her dis-
trict.
"It makes big-ticket items
all that more difficult to get. It
looks like paradise but para-
dise comes at a cost. I'm work-
ing hard so that I can thrive in
this election cycle." .
Former Key West
City Commissioner Tom
Oosterhoudt is a close friend of
Ros-Lehtinen.
"She has been on the scene
for any and every situation,"
he said. "She never hesitated
to meet with them [communi-
ty members] whether they
were black, white, Hispanic,
straight or gay. She reached
out to everyone. She does it
because she wants to. She
could easily ignore the Keys
but she doesn't."

The Sterling Program,
which then-County
Administrator Tom Willi
embraced. Monroe County
hired Carroll Consulting in
2005 to help improve the way
the county does business. The
company specializes in groom-
ing local government entities
for the Governor's Sterling
Award, which recognizes good
business performance.
The County Commission
ended Carroll's contract before
its work was complete.
Key West attorney Jerry
Coleman, hired as the county's
affordable housing consultant in
2005. He actually voided his
county contract on Jan. 31 after
Murphy suggested the county
sever its relationship with him
in light of a budget crunch.
Coleman charged the county
$350 an hour. But increasingly,
his invoices went beyond con-
sulting on housing issues. So at
the suggestion of County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton, the
commission agreed to, reign in
the expenses by seeing to it that.
Coleman address only afford-
able housing issues. That's
when he decided no more work
for the county.
From the beginning of his
contract to the end, he was paid
around $465,000.
Willi, fired by the com-
mission last December for what
was widely viewed as financial
mismanagement, and blamed
for a nearly 8 percent increase
in taxes this year to fix mis-
takes. Roman Gastesi replaced
him. Commissioner Dixie
Spehar called for Willi's firing
11 months after the commis-
sion initially held a special
meeting to consider getting rid

of him. He survived that
February 2007 on a 3-2 vote but
ultimately lost support.
Murphy, who is twice wid-
owed, retired from Monroe
County Emergency' Medical
Services in 1996. She was also a
two-decade volunteer with the
Tavernier Volunteer Fire
Department.
She took office in September
2006, beating Key Largo resi-
dent Glenn Patton in a special
election to fill the remaining
two years of the term of
Commissioner Murray Nelson,
who died in April that year.
Murphy is often aligried with
-Commissioner George Neugent
on issues, but she is also consid-
ered blunt and a person who
always speaks her mind.
"The No. 1 problem that we
have right now, of course, is
[constructing sewage treatment
systems under a state mandate].
That should be No. 1 in every-
one's mind," she says. "But rid-
ing equal to and on the same
plane as that is the financial sta-
tus of this county. That's going
to take constant vigilance
because things are going to get
worse."
And she says she doesn't
understand why Gutierrez is
running.
"He's not an opponent; he's
not running seriously. I don't
know why he's put his hat into
the arena," she says.
. Gutierrez who refuses to
speak to the media has run
for office in the Keys twice
before. In 2004, he ran as a
Republican against Nelson, also
a member of the GOP. Gutierrez
received 28 percent of the vote.
He also ran for state House in
2006, one of five GOP candi-
dates. He didn't survive the pri-
mary.
Gutierrez's beef with the
county has to do with several
lots he owns in the Upper Keys.
He says county restrictions have
devalued them, and he describes
the county's land-mapping sys-
tem, which classifies land and
the ability to build on it accord-
ing to its environmental sensi-
tivity, as "a system of stealing
people's property."
"That's why I'm running for
office," he says in a video on his
Web site, "to get that squared
away."
Gutierrez is retired from the
air-conditioning business.

FIRM. The
group suc-
cessfully
fought state
officials to get
windstorm
insurance
rates lowered
for Keys prop-
erty owners
following the
hurricane sea-


FIRM did so by demanding
something simple from Citizens
Property Insurance Corp., the
state's insurer of last resort:
Require Citizens' rates be actuar-
ially sound and hurricane risk
models be transparent versus the
veil of secrecy that surrounds for-
profit -insurers' hurricane-risk
models.
It worked: FIRM helped win
repeal of a proposed 24 percent
windstorm premium increase for
Keys property owners and an
additional rate reduction of more
than 30 percent. That led
Insurance Commissioner Kevin
McCarty to appoint her in May
2007 to the Task Force on
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. Claims Handling and
Resolution.
Rojas says he, too, knows
something about numbers.
"The main thing that got us
into the financial crisis is build-
ing really fancy buildings, and
now we have to pay to maintain
them and it's expensive to main-
tain them," he says. "If we need
new office space, we would lease
it. The money goes back into the
community."
Carruthers also talks about
county buildings but more to
illustrate a problem on the com-
mission. .
"Something else that disturbs
me is that often a commissioner
will bring something up and take
the rest of the commission by
surprise," she says. "A couple of
months ago, we had a meeting
where [Mayor] Mario [Di
Gennaro] said we have to sell the
Gato building. Then he produces
a piece of paper that lists all the
county properties. It's a great
conversation, but none of the
commissioners knew about it
beforehand."
Di Gennaro floated the idea of
selling the Gato government
building to raise money in a tight
fiscal year. Rojas isn't against
that but says right now, it's not
possible. In this economy, "No


one will buy them."
Instead, he wants to slash
county salaries.
"The main thing is cutting the
salaries of the highest-paid peo-
ple," he says. He says there up to
30 county employees making
$120,000 or more and believes "a
good number of them would be
comfortable with a salary of
$70,000."
He says the only ones who
shouldn't be cut are the county
administrator and attorney.
Carruthers is especially frus-
trated with a lack of institutional
knowledge in county government
due to high employee turnover.
"One of the things that's frus-
trating to me is when you want to
find information, it's difficult to
find it," she says.
Along with that lack of insti-
tutional knowledge, she says, is
"a culture of fear [among
employees] they're afraid to
say what they really feel." More
often than not, Carruthers says,
staffers tell the policy makers
what they want to hear even if it's
not the best advice.
One issue Rojas keeps raising
is Carruthers' Pearl's Rainbow, a
women-only guesthouse. He says
that because it excludes men,
Carruthers cannot be' a commis-
sioner who would include all
points of view when making
decisions.
Carruthers dismisses that.
"It doesn't affect the way I
look at life any more than it does
with my involvement with
FIRM, the Key West Symphony
or as a former president of the
Key West Lodging Association,"
she said.
Bashinsky, a retired attorney,
is running nonaffiliated.
One of his main planks was
disbanding the so-called Gang of
Three on the County
Commission Di Gennaro,
McCoy and Commissioner Dixie
Spehar. Voters did that when they
rejected Spehar and McCoy in
the August primary.
"Now the No. I thing is we
need to stop killing the ocean and
the reef," he said.
"If you look at the qualities -
integrity, experience, intelligence
and the ability to focus on an
issue he has all those quali-
ties," said former Monroe
County Attorney Jim Hendrick,
who considers Bashinsky a
friend. "What removes him from
a viable position is his profession
to be guided by angels."

County OKs TDR transfer


Swift to get
15 rights for
new development
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

An amended interlocal
agreement between the city of
Marathon and Monroe County
over transferring development
rights is now official.
The agreement allows the'
nonprofit Crane Point
Hammock in Marathon to
immediately sell 15 transfer-
able development rights, or
TDRs, to Old Town Key West
Development owner Ed Swift.
Swift will use the development
rights for a 43-home project in
the Lower Keys called Key
Haven Estates.
A TDR is the inherent densi-
ty one acquires by owning land
within'the county or city. It's
different than a transferable
building right, which is the
transfer of an actual building
permit allocation.
Stock Island activist Diane
Beruldsen, a frequent critic of
the County Commission, ques-
tioned the agreement at the
commission's Oct. 15 meeting
and said that "the Navy is
'opposed to that project."
Naval Air Station Key West
has concerns because the loca-
tion of Swift's proposed proj-
ect might be in the military's
crash and noise zone.
Beruldsen also said the
county has yet to address why


it would approve moving
development rights from one
area of the county to another
when-any new construction is
hurting owners of existing
homes trying to sell.
"You're putting people into
position where they'll go into
foreclosure; it doesn't make
sense," she said.
A Key West resident,
Christine Russell, also ques-
tioned the interlocal agree-
ment's repercussions and
asked, "Are you able to keep
transferring units from Key
Largo and Marathon to Key
Haven?"
The Marathon City Council
approved the agreement at a
Sept. 23 meeting, but not
before lowering the amount
that can be transferred from 50
to 15. Some council members
were concerned because the
city has no mechanism in place
to transfer development rights
into the city.
Crane Point holds 251
TDRs.
Crane Point recently invest-
ed $1 million in upgrading its
property, which has put the 64-
acre nature center and museum
in serious financial trouble.
The Florida Keys Land and Sea
.Trust, which owns Crane Point,
fired Keith Douglass last
Tuesday 'as executive director,
saying it could not afford to
pay his salary, although some
say it's because he wasn't
doing enough fundraising.
County Commissioner


George Neugent, who sits on
the board of the Land and Sea
Trust, asked County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton if he should
recuse himself from voting.
She said "there's no finan-
cial gain to you and this is an
interlocal agreement, so I don't
think there's a conflict."
Neugent then went on to
explain the TDRs from Crane
Point "are not [building per-
mit] exemptions. Marathon
wanted to tighten this up and
will have complete control
over what is conveyed to
another entity."
County Growth Manage-
ment Director Andrew Trivette
said "all this does is allow a
process to begin. Someone in
the unincorporated area will
still have to go through the
conditional use process, which
means another public hear-
ing."

It appears Florida Department
of Transportation subcontractor
VMS Inc. was more than a little
confused Wednesday when it tore
roughly 60 political signs out of
the ground in front of the
Guidance Center of the Middle
Keys.
DOT spokesman Brian Rick
said workers removed the signs
- without maps on hand -
believing the property belonged
to the agency.
VMS Project Manager Steve
Warfield authorized the work to
be done. He refused to respond to
questions from the Keynoter.
Rick said Florida Statute
337.406 governs DOT rights of
way "in terms of. anything not
permitted or approved."
"Fifty percent [of the signs]
were on the DOT right of way
and the others were not," Rick
said, adding the signs were all
placed closely together.
Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett has designated the
lot, which is owned by the city, as
one of three that all political can-
didates were invited to place
signs. He spoke to Warfield, who
originally had no intention of
bringing the signs back.
"I wasn't very happy," Bumett
said. "If you send workers out to
do something, they ought to
know what they can and can't
do.ny" i ,
Monroe County Sheriff's


Office Lt. Lou Caputo said VMS
eventually agreed to bring the
signs back, most of which were
lying in a pile Friday in front of
the Guidance Clinic. He said
VMS will not re-erect the signs.
"Every candidate has a differ-
ent method of putting them in,"
Caputo said. "The crews don't
know who does what."
Caputo added that despite
some rumblings, no charges of
vandalism will be pressed
because VMS had no criminal
intent. But he acknowledged that
while the signs. were returned
within an hour, workers damaged
many while removing them.
Marathon City Council candi-
date John Bartus said he is con-
sidering filing a complaint alleg-
ing criminal mischief
"My sign was pretty much
mangled. After they dropped
them off, they were in a pile and
there are pieces missing from my
sign," he said. "As far as I'm con-
cerned, they haven't fulfilled
their obligation."
Hal Schuhmacher, campaign
manager for Circuit Court judge
candidate Teagan Slaton, said
VMS workers ruined a sign
worth between $50 and $70.
"We were quite disappointed
they were going to do that but it
seems like an honest mistake," he
said.
"VMS brought the signs back
to the site and will work out
arrangements with the candidates
for any dainage to the signs,"
Rick said.

More than 3,700 have already voted early


That doesn't

voting by mail
By KEVIN WADLOW

Nearly a fourth of Monroe
County's registered voters
already have cast their ballots
in the Nov. 4 general election.
As of 5 p.m. Thursday,


3,715 people, had voted at one
of the five early-voting sites in
Monroe County..
Sometimes there have been
short lines at the early-voting
sites but it's off and on, elec-

say it hasn't been backed up at

Horan drop's sheriff bid


Candidates

gives support
to Sandy Downs
Keynoter Staff

Bob Horan has'dropped out
of the race for Monroe County
sheriff.
He said he decided
Thursday night the same
time the Keynoter was holding
a candidate forum at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West.
"It's just not worth follow-
ing anymore," Horan said.
He said he was tired of the
debates during the long cam-
paign season, especially citing
fellow sheriff candidates Ken
Davis and Bob Peryam's
responses to questions.
"They use the same lines all
the time and there's no back


and forth," said Horan, who
works at Leigh Ann's Coffee
House in Marathon.
Horan who's run for
sheriff numerous times and
state House once said
Friday, "I'm getting fed up
with politics."
Then he added he might
challenge state Rep. Ron
Saunders in two years.
Davis is a Republican and
former Drug Enforcement
Administration agent. Peryam,
a Democrat, is a 27-year vet-
eran of the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
Horan's dropping out
leaves those two running
against Cudjoe Key resident
Sandra Downs, who owns a
tree-trimming company. As
Horan was, she's running with
no party affiliation.
Horan has thrown his sup-
port to Downs.


Office.
The Key West elections
office has been the busiest
early-voting site, with 1,361
cast in the first four days.
The site at the Key Largo
library drew 780 voters from
Monday through Thursday,
followed by the Marathon
elections office (611), the Big
Pine Key library (593) and the
Plantation Key elections


office (370). Sites were still
open at press time Friday.
Early-voting sites are open
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday
through Saturday through
Nov. 1.
Registered Monroe County
voters can fill out ballots at
any of the five sites not just
the closest one during the
early-voting period.
In the regular election Nov.


4, voters will be required to
vote at their local precinct.
Mail-in ballots were
requested by 13,880 Monroe
County residents. A mail-in
ballot can be requested until
Wednesday.
When the Mohroe County
registration books were closed
and certified for the Nov. 4
vote, there were 50,149 on the

Trial set for

Obama suspect


Livea board'
charged with
making threats
By'KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A former Marathon live-
aboard boater accused of
threatening Barack Obamd
will spend Election Day in fed-
eral prison.
Raymond H. Geisel, who
turned 23 in custody at the
Miami Federal Detention
Center, faces a Dec. 8 trial on
charges of making a death
threat against Obama, the
Democratic nominee for presi-
dent.
A trial scheduled for Oct. 7
was delayed by a request for
continuance. It was not imme-
diately clear from available
records which side in the case
made the request.
Geisel was living aboard a
houseboat in Boot Key Harbor
with a woman when Secret
Service agents arrested him on
Aug. 7.
"It wasn't his boat. I can't
say anything else," said a
Marathon Marina worker, who
declined to be identified.
The arrest at a Miami motel
drew international attention.
Geisel reportedly moved from


class in Miami. aine,
where he




der e spe nttered a

said, "If he gethis life, to
Marathon
in January
to attend a

GEISEL man's cer-

At the course, another stu-
dent reported, Geisel uttered a
racial slur against Obama and
said, "If he gets elected, I'lln con-
assassinate him myself,"
according to a threst affidavit
quoted by the Associated
Press.ident Bush.
Another student told agents
that Geisel also expressed
hatred for President Bush. No
charges have been filed in con-
nection with a threat against
President Bush.
According to news reports,
a search of Geisler's 1998
Ford Explorer in Miami found
a loaded 9 mm handgun,
knives, dozens of rounds of
ammunition- including armor-
piercing types, body armor,
military style fatigues and a
machete. The SUV was wired
with flashing red and yellow
emergency lights."
Acquaintances told re-
porters that Geisel attended the
Miami course as a step toward
a law-enforcemrent career.

Wording gets
confused on
election ballot
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


For those who think the lan-
guage explaining the state con-
stitutional amendments and the
local referendum on the Monroe
County election ballot are con-
fusing, they should read them in
Spanish.
Edgardo Alvarado-Vazquez, a
Puerto Rico native and foreign-
language instructor at Florida
Keys Community College, said
the Spanish text on the 2008
sample ballot is generally.plain
to read.
However, there are several
instances, particularly with the
controversial local referendum


to fund the TraumaStar medical
helicopter, that could potentially
impact the way Spanish-speak-
ing voters understand the ques-
tions being asked.
"If you're not a political per-
son, not connected to the issues,
you wouldn't knoW what it's
asking," Alvarado-Vazquez said.
"They would have no idea of a
'star that is traumatic."'
When the referendum was
read by a staff member at The
Reporter who is fluent in both
English and Spanish, subtle but
seemingly important differences
were found.
For instance, the English ver-
sion says that approving the ref-
erendum would require impos-
ing a tax "not to exceed 7 1/2
cents per $1,000 taxable
value..."
That same section in Spanish,


says the equivalent of "not to
exceed 7 cents of the 1/2 per
$1,000 taxable value..."
Alvarado-Vazquez said he
also found significant problems
with the ballot summary of
Constitutional Amendment 3,
which if approved would allow
improvements for wind resist-
ance and renewable energy to be
exempted. from a property's
value for tax purposes.
"That's very, very sketchy,"
Alvarado-Vazquez said of the
Spanish version. "If you didn't
know what's going on, the
Spanish [version] alone would-
n't help.
"I think the whole translation
doesn't make sense at all."
Joyce Griffin, Monroe
County's assistant supervisor of
elections, said the Spanish trans-
lations for the constitutional
amendments are provided by the
Florida Division of Elections.


A request to the state division
to describe its translation proto-
col wasn't returned.,
As for local referendums,
Griffin said both the English and
Spanish language has to be pro-
vided by the referendum's spon-
sor. In the case of the
TraumaStar referendum, that's
Monroe County.
Officials in the County
Attorney's Office said the trans-
lation was likely provided by an
employee at the Circuit Court
administrator's office, who nor-
mally translates county docu-
ments. However, that couldn't be
verified.
"One thing I tell my students
is that [electronic] translators
don't work," Alvarado-Vazquez
said. "They feed it into a
machine that spews some text
that has nothing to do with gram-
mar and nuances."
Alvarado-Vazquez said he


complained about Spanish text
on the 1998 ballot to the state
Division of Elections, but he was
basically ignored.
"Even the instructions were
wrong," he said. "I got a really
angry response from
Tallahassee. He [the translator]
basically insulted me. He was
willing to go to court if we want-
ed to challenge."
Griffin said 3,812 voters in
Monroe County are registered as
Hispanic, although that might
not provide an accurate count
since voters are not required to
disclose ethnicity. There are
50,136 total registered voters.
The 2006 U.S. Census esti-
mated 18 percent of Monroe
County's population was of
Hispanic or Latino origin, and
more than'21 percent of the pop-
ulation spoke 'a language other
than English.

Key Wester
creates 356
in 24 hours
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

City officials joined, Key
West Ink tattoo artist John Paul
Bertrand on Thursday as he
attempted to break the Guinness
world record for most tattoos
given in 24 hours 415.
But after all was said and
done, Bertrand fell short of the
goal, applying "only" 356 tat-
toos. He was 59 short.
"I'm tired," he said Friday
afternoon. "I just want to go
home and see my kids. I'm
going to retire."
Bertrand wasn't upset he
didn't set a new record.
"I met some really cool
locals," he said. "I'll do it
again," maybe for New Years or
Fantasy Fest next year. "I think
we had too many tattoos to
choose from. It's hard to focus"
when applying four different
designs.


Before Bertrand started
Thursday, Mayor Morgan
McPherson declared, "Live and
in living color at the foot of
Duval Street, we'll set the
record: More tattoos in 24 hours
than any other city."
Ironically, tattoo parlors

Navy feared drunken sailors,
would get tattoos and catch dis-
eases such as hepatitis from the
needles. Sanitation measures
were minimal compared to
what they are today; each nee-
dle is now disposed of after it is
used.
As the timekeeping com-
menced at 2:10 p.m. Thursday,
Bertrand assured his first client,
"It's going to hurt so bad."
He got the large assembled
crowd involved and took time
to thank the numerous volun-
teers who came out to provide
support "I want to say, thank
you to everyone who is going to
help us do this."
Bertrand was averaging
about three minutes per tattoo
while support staff stenciled the
outlines, sterilized skin and
worked on keeping the traffic
flow moving.
The folks who turned out to
get free tattoos and participate
in -Bertrand's quest could
choose between a conch shell,
the letters KW, the Japanese
symbol for strength or a ribbon;
all tattoos measured one and
one half inches by three inches.
Guinness record keepers
were not on hand; Key West Ink
set up a live streaming video
feed that was reviewed by
Guinness on the Internet.
Key Wester Shannon
Gayton, 45, decided to get in
the chair and get inked.
"I swore I never would,"
Gayton said. But, "They're try-
ing to do something.for real.'
I'm only doing it for these peo-
ple."
"I think it's a great idea,
especially during Fantasy Fest,"
volunteer Derrick Traylor said.
Another volunteer, .Jeffrey
Foultz, echoed his sentiment:
"That's the best time. It's going
to bring more money to us as a
community."
In the home stretch Friday,
being awake for 24 hours was
clearly catching up with
Bertrand, who was pounding
energy drinks as the crowd
cheered him on and wife April
provided encouragement.
Bertrand doesn't just have
his sights set on trying to attain
the world record again.
"I've got an awesome idea.
My dream is to one day build an
underwater tattoo shop," he
said. "It's not a dream, it's a
goal."

Dog



park



closer

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Citizens Group for a
Marathon Dog Park is scheduled
to present its latest proposal to
the City Council Tuesday, which
includes the city donating an acre
of land on the events field
between 98th and 99th streets.
The city purchased the 10-
acre lot, which also houses City
Hall trailers, for $1.4 million in
2003.
The latest proposal suggests
approximate costs of $24,300.
That includes $14,000 for fenc-
ing and installation, $1,000 for a
rules sign, $7,000 for water
hookup, $1,200 for four bag dis-
pensers and receptacles for dog
waste, and $2,100 for four
benches.
"We're not going for the five-
star resort of dog parks," group
Chairwoman Mary Stella said.
"We also know if we had the land
and the fences, that would be
enough to get us started and we
can gradually add amenities
through fundraising."
There are two official dog
parks in the Keys, one at Higgs
Beach in Key West and the other
at Founders Pafk in Islamorada.
Most Marathon council mem-
bers says they favor the idea pro-
vided the city does not invest sig-
nificant taxpayer dollars.
"I support the dog park as far
as them .using their original
request for a half acre. However,
as far as land use only,"
Councilman Don Vasil said.
"With the economy the way it is,
this is a luxury item and I will not
burden the taxpayers with this
expense."
Councilman Mike Cinque
said cost is always a factor, but
he believes the citizen's group
will contribute toward the main-
tenance and construction costs.
He said Marathon is home to
many single people with animals.
"I know some people that
won't stay in Marathon because
we don't have a dog park," he
said.
The City Council meets at
5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.

Keynoter Staff

Monroe County attorneys on
Tuesday filed two post-trial
.- motions in the Celeste Bruno
case, one seeking to have the ver-
dict against the county set aside
and, failing that, a second for a
new trial.
Last year, Bruno, a former
aide to County Commissioner
Sonny McCoy, sued the county
alleging it allowed a hostile work
environment. She based her alle-
gations on stories McCoy told
about his travels that included
tales of his sexual exploits.
On Oct. 1, a federal jury in
Key West found the county liable
and awarded Bruno $48,400.
In an e-mail Tuesday, Chief
Assistant County Attorney Bob
Shillinger said "the first motion
asks the court to set aside the jury
verdict and enter judgment in
-" favor of the county. That motion
is based on the jury's finding that
I Ms. Bruno did not follow county
procedures when she failed to
complain before walking out of
Commissioner McCoy's office
[in March 2006].
"'In short, she failed to give
the county, her employer, an
opportunity to address her con-
cems while she was still working
for Commissioner McCoy."
Shillinger wrote that the
"county has also moved for a
new trial as an alternative. The
new trial motion is based upon
two key pieces of newly discov-
ered evidence."
The first is a Valentine's Day
card Bruno sent to McCoy that
contains a "variety of romantic
statements in French."
The second is "direct evi-
dence that Bruno testified
untruthfully at trial when she
.. attempted to trivialize the value
and significance of a Don
Quixote print which she paid
$209.61 to have framed for
Commissioner McCoy for
Christmas of 2005."
McCoy was elected to the
commission in 2000. In August,
25-08 he lost the Republican primary
and on Nov. 19 ends his second
four-year term. He'll be replaced
e. by whomever voters choose on
Nov. 4.

Man accused of
raping 9-year-old


A Key West man was arrested
Wednesday for allegedly raping
a 9-year-old girl two and a half
years ago.
Antonio Chapman, 27, is
accused of raping the child, the
daughter of one-of his friends,.
on April 20, 2006. City spokes-
woman Alyson Crean couldn't
say Friday why there was such a
time lag in when the alleged
assault occurred and when he
was arrested but said it had to do
with the length of time DNA
testing takes.
According to an arrest affi-
davit, Chapman allegedly went
to his friend's house to use the
bathroom because his mother
had kicked him out of his house,
and raped the girl.
Chapman has a long rap sheet
dating to 2003, including
charges of false imprisonment
and aggravated battery.

Grouper


concern



growing

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

Advisors to the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
joined the appeal to federal offi-
cials, asking for a change in a
pending closure on Atlantic
Ocean grouper fishing.
.The volunteer Sanctuary
Advisory Council cast a unani-
mous vote Tuesday to request
U.S. Secretary of Commerce
Carlos Gutierrez limit the four-
month closure to gag grouper.
"Some of the members repre-
senting environmental groups
were politic enough to excuse
themselves from the room so
they did not vote for or against,"
said Lower Keys charter captain
Brad Simonds, who represents
the sportfishing industry on the
council.
The advisory council doesn't
have rule-making authority but
is appointed by the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration to make recom-
mendations to local sanctuary
managers.
Sanctuary Superintendent
Dave Score will write to
Gutierrez to advise him of the
resolution.
"We had about 15 or 20 min-
utes of pretty vigorous discus-
sion over some of the wording,"
Simonds said. "It was toned
down a bit in places."
Unchanged was the basic
thrust of the request: Asking for
closure to affect only gag
grouper, and not the locally pop-
ular red grouper and black
grouper.
The closure approved by the
South Atlantic Federal
Management Council will take
effect Jan. 1 through April -
the heart of the Keys winter
tourism season unless
Gutierrez orders a change.
The Keys sanctuary makes it
a point to stay out of fishery
management decisions, but the
advisory council voted on the
resolution as an economic issue
facing sanctuary users, Simonds
said.

Check out this new ride


Post office's
3-wheeler
is electric
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key West residents who live
on Caroline and Eaton streets, or
anywhere in between, may do a
double-take when they see the
U.S. Postal Service's new high-
tech, eco-friendly delivery vehi-
cle.
Called the T3, the Key West
post office is one of only six in
the nation participating in the trial
of what may become the standard
of mail delivery in residential
areas that now see their carriers
walk door to door.
"It's a little more convenient
with the alleys here in Key West,"
said letter carrier, test driver and
Key West native Chaz Cervantes.
"The movability around town,
you don't have to wait for cars."
The new vehicle, the T3, is an
upright, three-wheeled vehicle
that can cruise on the sidewalk
with a max speed of 12 mph. It's
been designed to have a zero-
degree turn radius and is special-
ly modified to carry mail.
"I think they'd be perfect for
in town," Cervantes said as he
tucked fetters into the mailbox of
an Eaton Street, home without
getting off his vehicle.
But the best part? "I get a
longer lunch break," joked
Cervantes, who is finishing his'
route more quickly with the new
delivery vehicle.
A California-based company
called T3 Motion, which has
already sold more than 1,000
units to various law enforcement
agencies and the military, manu-
factures the vehicle.
"We approached the ... Postal
Service about clean energy," said
Brian Buccella, T3 Motion vice
president of sales and marketing.
He went on to explain that the
vehicle costs about 15 centsin
electricity to be fully charged.
"It reduces the carbon foot-
print," he said.
South Florida Postal Service
spokeswoman Debbie Fetterly
said that while the vehicle is good
for letter carriers, the real appeal
is the environmental aspect.
"We're trying to find more
ways to be more energy effi-
cient," she said Fcttlcrly. "We're
very energy conscious."

Townhouses up for auction


.Building stopped
when developer
went bankrupt
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

An unfinished condominium
project in Islamorada is going up
for auction Nov. 7 in Miami.
The auction of Indigo Bay, a
25-unit development at mile
marker 81.6 bayside in
Islamorada, results from the
bankruptcy of developer DB
Islamorada.
Work abruptly stopped on the
project as the units, with exteriors
painted in a variety of pastel
shades, neared completion, and
liens for unpaid construction bills
started to pile up.
DB Islamorada, one of several
companies owned or managed by
Dana Berman, filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection Nov.
29, 2007, in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Miami. A related compa-
ny, DB Key Largo, which intend-
ed to develop a condo-hotel at
mile marker 104, filed for bank-
ruptcy protection just two months
earlier.
Under Chapter 11, a company
is protected from creditor law-
suits while it reorganizes.
Louis Fisher, president of auc-
tion company AmeriBid Co., said
the bankruptcy court appointed
his company to sell the property.
Fisher said there's already an


$8 million offer on the table from
California-based real estate com-
pany Concord Wilshire.
DB Islamorada paid nearly
$5 million for the 1.95-acre
waterfront parcel in 2003,
according to the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office Web
site. The development was mar-
keted as a condominium hotel,
with units offered at $700,000 to
$1.3 million. It's 90 percent to
95 percent complete.
"It's sort of a unique one.
There's really nothing in the
marketplace to compare it to,"
Fisher said.
Fisher said that's driving inter-
est in the property, despite the
real estate downturn. Jim
Mooney of Moorings Realty is
showing the property to prospec-
tive bidders, and he confirmed
there's been a steady stream of
inquiries.
The village of Islamorada has
issued an extension to the devel-
opment agreement so work can
be completed. Prospective bid-
ders get a scope of work docu-
ment outlining what needs to be
done for certificates of occupan-
cy to be issued.
Key Largo resident John
Alderman, one of nearly 350
investors in the Islamorada proj-
ect, appeared in front of the
Village Council this summer to
make the case for an extension.
At that time, Alderman said some
of the investors wanted to hang


on to the property and operate it
as a hotel. In the end, however, he
said the committee representing
the investors decided it would be
best to let the property go to auc-
tion and recover what they could
of their investment.
The auction starts at 1 p.m.
Nov. 7 at the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court's Southern District of
Florida. Prospective bidders must
submit $500,000 in certified
funds by Nov. 3 to be eligible to
bid. Once the bankruptcy judge
ratifies a sale, the deal would
probably be closed within 45
days, Fisher said.
Business is brisk for Fisher's
company, which specializes in
conducting auctions of real estate
for government agencies.
"We could do one once a
day, but we're being very selec-
tive," Fisher said. He said auc-
tions are a good way to get
properties on and off the
market, because auction guide-
lines can ensure a level playing
field and quick resolution.
"A lot of properties are over-
leveraged," he said, so he expects
to see an even busier 2009. He
predicted auctions would move to
the' forefront as they did in the
1980s and 1990s, when the
Resolution Trust Corp. was shed-
ding assets it had inherited from
failed savings and loans.
"In order for this market to
have some sort of stabilization,"
Fisher said, distressed properties
need to be put back on solid
footing.

Back off, shark!


Researcher creates
repellents for when
Jaws gets close
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Shark-attack movies have
been terrifying moviegoers since
Steven Spielberg's Academy
Award-winning 1975 thriller
"Jaws." But Florida Keys
Community College professor
:Patrick Rice may have ruined that
plot line for Hollywood directors.
The college's new director of-
marine sciences has discovered,
along with partners in his Shark
Defense Technologies business,
several natural repellants that
would have benefited Roy
Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss
aboard the Orca.
Rice has developed remark-
ably effective repellants using
chemicals, magnets and electro-
positive metals. He put them on
display earlier this month at the
Aqua Ranch and Dynasty Marine
in Marathon and the results
were astounding.
Holding a large ceramic mag-
net, Rice awaited a nurse shark
and two small bonnetheads to
make their way around to him in
a circular holding tank. As they
did, he brought the magnet up
against the outside of the tank and
watched as the sharks quickly
darted in the opposite direction.
He then placed five of the mag-
nets in a straight line from the cen-
ter of the tank to the wall and
watched as the sharks turned back'
each time they encountered them:
Even more impressive was watch-
ing the sharks navigate though the
magnets as they lie in an "S"
shape on the bottom of the tank.
Rice has found the electro-
positive metals, or EPMs, have
the same effect. He likens a
shark's exposure to them to walk-
ing across carpet with socks on
and being shocked by a doorknob.
"Sharks have sensitive electri-
cal sensors on their nose called
ampullaelorenzinti," Rice
explained. "They can detect elec-
trical sensitivity to a billionth of a
volt. When this occurs, it over-
whelms the shark's senses and it
blasts them."
But all of Shark Defense

Florida Keys Community College Director of Marine Science Patrick Rice displays newly
discovered shark repellant techniques at the Aqua Ranch in Marathon. Rice used ceramic
magnets; chemicals and electro-positive metals to overwhelm the sharks' senses and show
how lives can potentially be saved in emergency situations using these products.


Technologies discoveries none
are guaranteed to be 100 percent
effective if a shark actually
approaches you and you happen
to have the repellent with you -
have come as a result of their
chemical repellant studies.
According to Rice, shark
repellant research has been going
on since World War II, when the
U.S. Navy attempted to develop a
formula to protect sailors in the
event of an emergency.
"They heard from commercial
fishermen that sharks didn't like-
the smell of other rotting sharks
and they tried to make a repellant
out of it," he said. "They made
their best guess and substituted an
ammonia group for a substance in
sharks called trimethylammi-
neoxide."


The result, Rice said, was a
largely ineffective product known
as Shark Chaser that was used by
the Navy for more than 30 years.
He and his colleagues retraced
their footsteps and performed
chemical analysis, successfully
identifying compounds in the
decaying sharks.
"We've discovered four differ-
ent chemicals that are all part of
the soup that comes from the rot-
ting shark and now we have syn-
thetics, so we don't have to kill
sharks to make it," Rice said.
The products have all under-
gone U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency testing and are for
sale at www.RepelSharks.com.
Rice said they have a number of
different uses.
The chemical repellant comes


in aerosol form, which could
come in handy to a boater strand-
ed on a life raft or in a life vest in
open water. It might also be use-
ful to spearfishermen or freed-
ivers,.he said, because the can has
a bug-bomb trigger made for
underwater use.
Rice said he one day hopes to
see magnet repellants replace the
nets used to protect beachgoers
from sharks in South Africa and
Australia. He said the nets unnec-
essarily kill sharks and other sea
life unnecessarily.

.com for more information on
the work Rice and his partners are
doing.

stration from earlier this month,

. ..31 Elks, gospel,
. .30 lights, dancing,


snaps, rain, tuba.
By MARGARET MENGE
margaretmenge@keynoter.com


Captain Steven W. Holmes,
commander of Naval Air Station
Key West, came in dress whites,
and brought a color guard, tothe
Goombay opening ceremony at
the Coral City Elks Lodge on
Whitehead Street on Thursday
evening.
A small band of brothers
came down the street playing
instruments. They were members
of the Thunder from Down,
Under, and we all went out into
the streets to watch them. Our
eyes followed them as they
approached the stage on
Whitehead, turning out and
blowing on horns, and curling in
to the circle and drumming. Ken
Sullivan, exalted leader of the
Coral City Elks and festival
director of Goombay, jumped in
front holding the banner and
walking in time.
The ceremony began with a
benediction. All heads were
bowed as the minister thanked
God for the beautiful weather...
and all were blessed, "not only
the Democrats but the
Republicans too because we all
belong to you Dear God."
A junior at Key West High
School played the National
Anthem on his guitar and then
the women of the Blessed
Community Gospel Choir sang .
from the small stage in their
matching purple T-shirts. Their
song, "The Windows of Heaven
are Open" could be heard for
many blocks, though if you were
standing right next to them, it
-was not too loud at all.
Friday was the first day of the
"world famous" Goombay street
fair, and Petronia was very fair,
with many lights. There was
music playing everywhere -
sometimes one song in one ear,
another song in the other ear.
There was Marvin Gaye, "Who
Let the Dogs Out," you name it.
" Goldie was there, selling his
famous conch salad. But there
was no gold oln him. The grille,
the jewelry, it was all gone. He
got robbed in Miamihe said.
Saturday. The kids from the
Steel Your Heart Key West Pan
Band from Gerald Adams


Elementary School were setting
up their instruments on the big
stage at Petronia and Emma and
they were so excited they were
already dancing. But just when
they were about to go on, the
rain came. It rained on and off all
day on Saturday, but cleared up

enough for the Junkanoo Rush.
There it came down Duval.
European tourists, pale white,
looked on with great curiosity as
the band of men in yellow and
orange came down the street.
There was a tuba in front, and a
trumpet, and a few men in head-


dresses. Behind them everybody
was dancing, including a woman
in rollers. They went all the way
down Petronia past the
Colombians selling their arepas
to the main stage at Emma where
speeches were forthcoming. Kids
threw snaps.

We don't need an airport named for Sonny


Name it
instead for
Mario Sanchez
By MARGARET MENGE
Editor, L'Attitudes

It is known that in warm cli-
mates, the citizenry does not
always do the best job of
picking its leaders. Look at
Miami, at New Orleans, at .
Haiti, at Cuba. People rise to
power because they appeal in
some way to the emotions of
the people. Their misdeeds are
often overlooked. Their cruelty,
often, is cleverly hidden behind
the smile they show to the pub-
lic.
A ceremony to christen the
new Key West airport terminal,
and to honor former Monroe
County Mayor Charles "Sonny"
McCoy, after whom it is to be
named, was postponed this
month. It is-to be rescheduled
in the spring. And letters are
now running in the local news-
papers. McCoy's daughters
want the airport named for their
parents, whom they say have
served Key West and Monroe
County well. But the record of
the recent trial, where a federal
jury found Monroe County
liable for failing to protect
Celeste Bruno from Sonny
McCoy's sexual harassment,
disagrees with them. -
The picture of Sonny
McCoy that .emerged from the
trial this month in Key West is
of a man who used power to
intimidate and degrade people
who depended on him for a job.
McCoy admitted, or at least did
not deny, repeating over and
over again to his assistant sto-
ries of his sexual exploits, of
his infidelity to his wife, of vis-
iting Cuban prostitutes and,
most charmingly, of his runny
penis. Celeste Bruno said in her
complaint that after repeatedly
telling McCoy that she did not
want to hear these stories, he
turned on her, and began to
belittle hfer in front of others.
She was forced from her job,
and forced to move back to her
home state of Massachusetts.
The jury gave her everything
she asked for which was just
enough money to cover lost
wages and pay for counseling,
and no more.
The word around Monroe


County is that it was only a
matter of time before Sonny
was caught. His behavior was
tolerated for many years. It
should not be tolerated any
longer. The airport should not
be named after a man who
treated those who depended
upon him for work with vulgar-
ity and cruelty. It's time for
Key West and for everyone
who pay taxes in the Keys (and
votes here) to just say no.
Eric Holowacz, the execu-
tive director of the Studios of
Key West, wrote an excellent
letter to the editor last week-
end, suggesting that the name
of the new Key West airport
terminal be named instead for
artist Mario Sanchez, the Key
West folk artist who died in
2005 at the age of 96.
Half of Key West turned out
at the Custom House on Friday,
Oct. 10 for the opening of the
Mario Sanchez exhibit, to
honor the artist on what would
have been the year of his 100th
birthday. What they'saw there
in the painted wood carvings
made over the course of 70
years was an artist who saw
human nature as it was and is,
and forgave it everything.
"I don't think I ever remem--
ber his saying anything mean or
bad about anyone," Nance
Frank, the owner of the Gallery
on Greene, told me this week.
Frank studied Mario's work for
more than ten years. And she
studied Mario himself. She says
she remembers one time point-
ing to a carving Sanchez made


)`


Mario Sanchez, shown here in a portrait by Paul Collins, was born in Key West in 1908, the son
of a cigar maker. He worked as an artist in Key West for more than 70 years.


showing a man with rotten
teeth drinking sour belly wine
and looking about as ornery as
a human being can look. And
all Sanchez said was: "You
know Nance, no one ever
comes back from war the
same."
Last month, The Art in
Public Places Committee voted
to accept the gift of a bust of
Mario Sanchez. A place should
be found for it in the new ter-
minal. And signs on the build-
ing should be made to match it.

Parrot heads


are heading here


All invited to
Margaritaville
street fest Oct.


ext week Thursday
through Sunday more
than 3,000 Jimmy
Buffett fans will flock to Key
West to celebrate Buffett's
music and the laid-back
lifestyle he promotes in his
songs.


WHAT
ABOUT THE
PARAKEET ?


At the 17th annual Parrot
Heads in Paradise 'Meeting
of the Minds' convention -
titled "Bar Stools and Beach
Chairs" Buffett's vice
presidential running mate will
be chosen.
Key West was Jimmy
Buffett's home during some
of his most productive years
and is credited with inspiring
his hit song "Margaritaville."
His lyrics are rich in refer-
ences to Key West locales
such as Fausto's Food Palace,
Blue Heaven and the Chart
Room Bar. His songs memo-
rialize Key West characters
like Captain Tony Tarracino
and the late Phil Clark, whose
real-life exploits unfold in "A
Pirate Looks at 40," Buffett's
best selling memoir.
In the mid-1980s Buffett
founded the Margaritaville
Store in Key West's Lands


End Village. It's now located.
on Duval Street beside the
entertainer's Margaritaville
Caf6, and remains onie of the
island's most popular visitor
destinations and a mecca for
Parrot Heads.
The flock's 2008 conven-
tion is to feature concerts by
Buffett band members and
also, charity auctions, a street
festival with live niusic and
an oceanfront "Beach Bash"
at the Casa Marina Resort,
1500 Reynolds St., the con-
vention's headquarters.
Most convention activities
are open only to registered
members of Parrot Head
clubs, but the public is invit-
ed to attend the
Margaritaville Street Fest,
planned for 1-6 p.m. Friday,
Oct. 31, adjacent to
Margaritaville at Duval and
Fleming streets.
Entertainment is to be pro-
vided by Club Trini, Tropical
Soul with Scott Bryan, a for-
mer member of Sheryl
Crow's band, and the Boat
Drunks. The event is spon-
sored by the Paradise
Charitable Foundation, creat-
ed to oversee Parrot Heads'
community-based social,
philanthropic and humanitari-
an efforts.

Andy Thurber's 'Conch Town'


Tenth show for
folk artist at
Gallery on Greene
Conch Town," an exhibit
of the paintings and
carvings of Andy
-Thurber, opened at the Gallery
on Greene in Key West on
Saturday, Oct. 18.
"This is my best work
ever," the artist said before
the show.
The artist's themes cof-
fee houses, quiet streets, inter-
esting characters, shrimp
boats and hangouts bring
out the nostalgia in even new-
comers who arrived before the
demise of places like La
Dichosa Bakery.
"Key West will never have
the same flavor as the day
Franco passed away," says
Thurber.
In another painting, the
image of St. Mary's is as
haunting as it is reverential.
And the Old Fire Station on
Virginia Street begs one to.
remember the old mamey tree
from which the firemen used
to dole out fruit to the neigh-
borhood children.
Thurber is a Keys folk
artist in the sense that he has
lived and worked here and
drawn his inspiration from the
neighborhoods and people. He

rendition of the historic Armory in -one of Thurber's paintings,

focuses .his work on the fast
disappearing corners of the
.Keys and the joy of living in a
place most of us feel is better
than anywhere else on earth.
For all these reasons and
more, Nance Frank, owner of
Gallery on Green, is holding
up Thurber as the Keys folk
artist of his generation.

only at Key West High School.


The Island Grill has been serving
breakfast now for over 5 months, and
we really appreciate the locals who.have
helped to make it a huge success during
these challenging economic times.
Vindictive actions initiated: by others
*-have raised additional, needless hurdles
for us. We have sought approval for our
temporary Tiki Bar on our beach for
some time with cooperation on the part
the Village Council. To have that
process diverted by petty rivalry served
no purpose and wasted our community's
time and energy. -
But, at this point, the issues have
been resolved and the Tiki Bar is up and
running!

As a result, our Beach facility is now
fully operational, and is the perfect place
for weddings, receptions, fishing tourna-
ment events on the waterfront with
extensive dockage and instant ocean
access, corporate parties and of course,
Christmas and Holiday celebrations.
Book now to save your date!
Combined with live entertainment
every day and night in season and the
best breakfast in town not to mention
the award winning menu for lunch and
dinner it's no wonder that Florida
Magazine has recognized the Island
Grill as the Best Waterfront Restaurant
in the entire Sunshine State.

final home match


By DICK WAGNER -
Keynoter Contributor


Still determined despite a star-
tling string of defeats, the Key
West High School volleyball team
dug for glimmers of hope Tuesday
evening during a loss to
Monsignor Pace in a district match
at the Bobby Menendez Gym.
"Giving the crowd a good
game and against Pace was
a big achievement for us," said
coach Jessy Hulme, after the
Conchs had their losing streak
extended to 17 and their record
lowered to 1-18.
After losing the first two
games, 25-20 and 25-7, it looked
like another three-and-out day,


but the Conchs, who were com-
ing off five losses in a weekend
tournament in Miami, fought
back against the talented
Spartans in the third game to the
delight of themselves and about
appreciative 100 fans.
Led by freshman Laura Garcia,
Key West got off to a 14-10 lead,
but after Pace pulled to within 19-
18, it looked again as if the
Conchs would be unable to finish.
But after two Spartan errors
and two- service aces by senior
Monica Caceres who, along

Marathon opens in the
District 16-2A semifinal
Thursday against second-seed

"It's not the best draw for us
so we'll have to be ready for a
fight," Eigner said.
All four games in the Cane-
Dolphin showdown were up
for grabs.
Nine serving points by Cane
senior Julia Hatfield gave
Coral Shores the -edge in the
25-22 opener. Chelsea Russell
provided steady floor to parry
the Dolphin attack.
Defense from Marathon's

Coral Shores took second

Volleyball
teams play
in tournament
By Keynoter Staff

Five Marathon seniors played
their final home volleyball match
Tuesday, losing in five heated
games to Greater Miami
Academy, 27-29, 25-22, 20-25,
25-21 and 9-15.


Coach Kelly Eigner said
evenly matched teams playing
three times in a season is bound
to cause problems, and tempers
did flare during the back-and-
forth contest.
"The first two [matches]
weren't anything like that,"
Eigner said. "The first time we
played, they won easily and the
second time we won easily. We
went in expecting to have a good
game."
Trailing 5-7 in the final game,
the Dolphins (9-14) fell far
behind when they had trouble
dealing with a quality server.
"We just kind of crumbled.
After she was done serving it
was 13,6," Eigner said.
Graduating for the Dolphins
are Vanessa Sardina, Jeannette
Betancourt, Sarah Melia,
Morgan Longstreth and Lauren
Green.
"Those girls have busted their
butts, our conditioning regimen
was pretty rough," Eigner said,
commending the girls for com-
mitting so much time to the team
and being good students.
Next for the Dolphins is
against Palmer Trinity Thursday
at Westminster Christian School.

Pruitt, Timura'

win the S.L.A.M.


They stay on
good tarpon site
for the victory
A simple plan of returning to
where the tarpon bite was
through the first day proved
fruitful enough for teammates
Troy Pruitt of Naples and John
Timura of Islamorada to claim
victory Sunday in the Mercury
Redbone Southernmost Light
tackle Anglers Masters Celebrity
Tournament.
During a successful Day 1,
Pruitt and Timura caught four
tarpon early in the morning and
'put themselves in position for a
comfortable lead. On Day 2,
local guide Brian Helms brought
the team to the same location for
still more padding in the points
before the hunt for bonefish,
which eventually would secure
Pruitt's slam (a tarpon, bonefish
and permit).
Mitch Howell of Plantation
and Larry Vaught, with guide
Tim Carlisle, finished as run-
ners-up. with 600 points overall,
two fewer than Timura and
Pruitt.
"I think those tarpon are what
helped us out with points," said
Pruitt, the 2006 Baybone tourna-
ment's grand champion angler.
"We knew they would be there.
It was just a matter of getting
there, being the first boat there,
and we were."
"We were so confident that
those tarpon would give us more
points,". Pruitt. said. "We were
more worried about another boat
being there. It's just a little area:
where they were holding it's


not like we could've fished there
with a few other boats. So that
was our plan, just go there first
thing and get some extra points,
because, obviously, I think it
came down to points."
Former Florida Marlins
pitcher Bill Hurst, a Miami
native, won the Celebrity Grand
Champ award with one bonefish
(100 points, bait) caught
Saturday and one. tarpon (150
points, spin/plug) caught
Sunday. Guided by local Peter
Heydon, Hurst narrowly edged
former Denver Broncos and
University of Miami offensive
lineman Mark Cooper, who had
more points.
Hurst topped Cooper because
he caught multiple species while
Cooper earned 300 points with
bonefish alone.

comer of the gym past a littering
of bags, sneakers, energy-drink
bottles a pink cell phone, note-
books, textbooks ("Precalculus."
A"Psychology"), stuffed animals,
good-luck balloons and a sign
that read, "Steph, I love you, 10!"
The team meeting was brief,
and after it, Hulme said with a


smile, "I'm not upset at all. They
were constantly moving and talk-
ing, and they were more mentally
tough than I've ever seen them."
It had become close to 8
o'clock, and the gym was almost
empty. No. 10, though, her eyes
welling up beneath the lights, her
home career at an end, lingered in
the place she would miss "more
than anything."
Steph Garmany was in ho
hurry to leave.



Conchs end 1-19

The Key West High vol-
leyball team's regular season
ended Thursday w ith a 25-3,
25-11, 25-15 loss at Mater
Academy. The Conchs (1-
19) will play in the District
16-4A tournament on
Tuesday in Miami.

Dolphin boys finish second


Cross country
fares well
among 6 teams
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com
The Marathon High School
.cross-country team reaped the
rewards of a revamped practice
routine Tuesday, making its best
showing so far this season at a
multi-team meet held at Miami's
Indian Hammocks Park.
The boys finished second out
of six teams with a score of 40,
while the girls finished third
with a 56.
Florida Christian School won
both 5K races, with a boys score
of 29 and a girls score of 29.
Westminster Christian School's
54 narrowly edged the Dolphin
girls for second place in the girls
race.
"We did really well, Mike
and I were excited because we
changed up our practices and the


kids were really receptive to it
and did well," coach Becky
Winter said of she and fellow
coach Mike Lettau.
Winter said she found the
kids tired quickly with long-dis-
tance runs during practice, so
she and Lettau implemented a
more diverse routine.
"We kept everything short.
We'd do sprints, Fartleks [jog,
sprint, jog exercise] and then a
shorter distance run. The kids
liked it a lot better because they
didn't' feel like they.were run-
ning as much," Winter said.
Fartlek exercises involve
continuous walking, jogging and
or sprinting.
Sophomore Jhonathan
Guzman finished first for the
Dolphins and second overall in
the meet in 19:51. He was fol-
lowed by freshman Virgilio
Sanchez (4th overall) in 20:01,
Riley Durkin (10th overall) in
21:25, Thomas Bowersox (llth
overall) in 21:28) and Manny


Perez (13th overall) in 22:39.
Winter said Guzman contin-
ues to perform well despite
struggling with a recent shin
injury.
"If he wasn't hurt he could
run in 17 or 18 minutes. He has
a steady pace the entire time and
doesn't even look like he broke a
sweat," she said.
Sophomore Kelsey
Wonderlin was the Dolphins' top
finisher Tuesday, finishing sixth
overall in 24:08. Sophomore
Marisa Brossard finished 10th
overall in 27:08, followed by
Ashley Adamo (12th overall) in
27:30, Nancy Ceja (14th overall)
in 27:35 and Ariel Moore (15th
overall) in 27:40.
Winter said the Dolphins are
concentrating now on Tuesday's
county championship meet with
Coral Shores and Key West high
schools at the Key West Golf
Course. The Dolphins won the
girls races last year, while the
Hurricanes took the boys race.
