The decommissioned 'USS Hoyt Vandenberg' departs from the James River Naval Reserve
fleet March 30, 2007, en route to Colonna's Shipyard in Norfolk, Va. A federal judge has
ordered the vessel; planned as an artificial reef off Key West, to be auctioned to pay off
outstanding bills owed the shipyard and three contractors,


'Vandy' going to auction


Federal judge
says Reefmakers
owes $1.6 million
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Plans to sink the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg as an artificial reef
off Key West appear to be cap-


sizing.
On Oct. 27 in Norfolk, Va.,
U.S. District Court Judge Mark
Davis ordered the 520-foot for-
mer military vessel to be auc-
tioned in late December to
recoup the $1,639,457.97 owed
to Colonna's Shipyard and vari-
ous subcontractors for cleaning
and storing the ship.


The city of Key West owns
the Vandenberg. The city con-
tracted with Artificial Reefs of
the Keys to transform the vessel
into an artificial reef to be sunk
seven miles off Key West.
Artificial Reefs, in turn, con-
tracted with Reefmakers LLC
to get the ship cleaned.

'Vandy' headed to auction block


'VANDENBERG' / From 1

Venture Dynamics Enterprises
and Canadian Artificial Reef
Consultants are suing the New
Jersey-based Reefmakers to get
the money Davis has ruled
-they're owed.
Joe Weatherby, a Key West-
based employee of Reefmakers,
had nothing to say about the auc-
tion. He said only, "You can call
Bill."
He was referring to City
Commissioner Bill Verge, who is
the city's point man on the project.
Verge, who has championed
the Vandenberg scuttling, said a
bank consortium led by BB&T
that includes Orion and First
State banks has already paid out
$3.2 million of a pledged $4.6
million to have the vessel towed
from the James River in Virginia,
cleaned of contaminants and
readied for scuttling.
When the banks cut funding at
$3.2 million, the project stalled.
"They pulled the plugs," Verge
said.
BB&T officials did not return
calls for comment. Don Lanman, a
vice president at First State, said,
"We're not allowed by contract [to
enumerate financing] -because
we're not the lead lender."
Key West officials are await-
ing word from Gov. Charlie'
Crist's office about whether $1.6
million from the Florida Office of
Tourism and Economic Develop-
ment 'will come through to pay
off the lien.
"Nothing's come to conclu-
sion yet," Crist spokeswoman
Sterling Ivey said. "We don't
have a definitive timeline on
when funds will be released. It's a
shame and we're trying to get
resources before the auction."
"The hope right now is the
governor .allocates the money,"
said Key West City Attorney
Shawn Smith.
Smith also said the city is
awaiting word from Crist's office
before accepting another $1 mil-
lion for the project to be chan-
neled through the state Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
One of the city's arguments in
the Colonna's lawsuit is that the
Vandenberg isn't a ship because it
can't operate under its own
means. The judge, Davis, dis-
agreed when the city brought that
up in disLu .ing maritime law.

A worker cuts off an electrical box on the decommissioned
ship while it's docked in the Norfolk, Va., shipyard in October
2007. Thousands of man hours were invested to cleanse the
vessel of pollutants so it could be sunk to create an artificial
reef off Key West. Those plans are now in serious jeopardy.



Where's the money?


Funding has been the major
- hurdle for the Vandenberg scut-
tling. Initial financing was pro-
vided by a three-bank consor-
tium and was based on numer-
ous pledges for future alloca-
Stions from a variety of local,
state and national sources.
The initial cost estimate for
the project, generated in 2001,
was $2.18 million. The most
recent estimate pegs the total
cost at $8.45 million.
BB&T, First State Bank and
Orion Bank pledged $4.6 mil-
lion and cut funding at $3.2
million; the banks will be reim-
bursed from the following

cally capable of transportation of
goods or persons on water. The
fact that a barge, dredge or dam-
aged vessel cannot operate under
its own power and must be towed
does not make such watercraft
any less of a vessel for jurisdic-
tional purposes, as it still may be
used to transport goods or per-
sons on water under tow."
Even Verge seemed to concede
that point. "It's sitting up there
and ready to go," Verge said.

Meanwhile, association
Chairman Mary Schindler said
he anticipates a statement regard-
ing "a nonprofit entity" and
Fishermen's. He also declined to
discuss specifics.
HMA Senior Vice President
of Florida Operations Stephen
Midkiff acknowledged an
announcement was in the works
Friday but said his primary con-
cern is reassuring residents that
levels of care would remain the
same.
Of HMA's lease with the.
association, Midkiff said, "If
that's the [amount of] time that
the board of trustees wants us,
we'll be there."
Fishermen's Chief Executive
Officer Kim Bassett, an HMA
employee, held a meeting
Thursday with hospital depart-
ment heads before heading to
HMA's corporate offices. As of
press time Friday, no announce-
ment had been made.
Schindler acknowledged that
the Internal Revenue Service in
August stripped Fishermen's
Hospital Inc. of its 501(c)3 tax-
exempt status. But he said there
would be no tax implications
since the exemption is surren-
dered if the association partners
with a non-exempt entity.
Baptist Health would be a
likely candidate for that role,
according to Keys attorneys who
specialize in tax law.
"What happened was the
Fishermen's Hospital .Board of
Trustees over the years has done
a lot of things to improve the
hospital," Schindler said. "The
opinion of the IRS is if you did
that, you improved the property

Parade, party today
celebrate Capt. Tony

A parade and block party
take place today to honor the
memory of Key West charac-
ter Capt. Tony Tarracino, who
died Nov. 1 at age 92.
The parade starts immedi-
ately after his funeral, which
is at 11 a.m. at St. Mary Star
of the Sea church. The party is
on Greene Street, right in
front of the saloon that bears
his name, from 1 to 3 p.m.


Greene will be closed between
Duval and Whitehead streets.
Spring's Island Taxi in
Marathon will run shuttles to
the funeral and party. Call
797-7191.
Also, the 400 block of
Duval Street will be closed to

to the benefit of HMA."
Schindler said that violation
and any fine would be over-
looked because the hospital
intended to surrender its non-
profit status.
Both Schindler and Midkiff
said if HMA were bought out,
the company would absorb the
cost of capital improvements
made over the years. But Midkiff
said HMA would still own CAT
scanners and X-ray machines
bought under a leasehold
improvement.
"Everything in the equipment
side is ours. The normal process
would be a [monetary] transfer to
the new lessee," he said. He
declined to say how,much the
equipment might be worth
because Baptist has made no
announcement.
One factor driving a buyout is
believed to be the hospital's abil-
ity to obtain a "critical access"
designation, made possible by
the Medicare Rural Hospital
Flexibility Program. According
to the Tennessee Hospital
Association, critical access is "an
alternative for small, rural hospi-
tals that creates the potential for
enhanced reimbursement from
Medicare."
Schindler has said previously
that the association's. nonprofit
status and HMA's for-profit sta-
tus are incompatible in acquiring
critical access designation.
But Bassett has told the
Keynoter the hospital is in com-
pliance with criteria to receive
the designation and that efforts to
discuss it with the Fishermen's
board met with opposition. That
includes an attempt to bring an
expert from Florida's Rural
Health Office in to address the
board, Bassett said.

Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton; based at
the Key West airport where Air
Key West is based, said many of
the airport and charter service
staff knew Ricciuti.
"We're very sorry for the loss.
It's hitting pretty hard here
because it is so close to home,"
he said.
According to Valle's Web site,
Ricciuti, known to friends as
Drew, graduated from the U.S.
Naval Academy in 1987. He
went on to serve as a Navy pilot
in Operation Desert Storm in the
early 1990s.
In 1994, Ricciuti was assigned
to Naval Air Station Key West
and he fell in love with Keys liv-
ing. He purchased a home in the'
Keys with the hope to eventually
settle.
After Ricciuti's tenure in the
Navy ended, he flew for several
charter and corporate jet services
in the northeast until he returned
to Key West in 2005.
The plane was cleared for
landing at Gainesville Regional
Airport by air-traffic controllers


in Jacksonville at 2:45 a.m., said
Kathleen Bergen, a spokes-
woman with the Federal Aviation
Administration.
State officials didn't contact
Gainesville police until 5:16 a.m.
saying that contact with the plane
had been lost, according to the
Gainesville Sun. It remains
unclear why there was a two and
a half hour gap between the time
of landing clearance and the time
police were notified.
The Gainesville Sun says
Summer Hallett, spokeswoman
for the Gainesville Police
Department, said that following
the call from state officials, a
search began immediately. Police
ran into difficulties because
dense trees surround the airport
and there was a heavy fog.
Just after 7 a.m., an airport
employee called 911 to report a
debris field found on the far east-
ern area of airport property.
According to police Capt. Bart
Knowles of the Joint Aviation
Unit, it appeared the plane hit
trees surrounding the runway
based on hanging debris, the Sun
reported.
The National Transportation
Safety Board was .investigating
Friday afternoon to determine the
cause of the crash the first at
the Gainesville airport in three
years.

City Hall debate needs

dose of reality

Perhaps we're missing something.
But watching the Key West City Commission discuss sites
and alternatives for a replacement City Hall hits a false note in
a time of economic uncertainty.
The city has long known about the health problems from
mold in the leaky Angela Street building.
Squabbles over New Town versus Old Town stalled any
moves back when the local economy was buzzing and real
estate fueled a robust public purse.
Fast-forward three years and the same squabbles divide the
current Commission, with three voting for New Town and the
rest holding out to keep City Hall in Old Town.
This is not an inconsequential debate.
City Hall can serve many purposes, only one of which is to
provide office space for the workers who.actually keep the city
running. It also serves as a civic emblem of a city's past and
often what it sees as it's future.
There is little about the Angela Street building that evokes
Key West's storied history. In fact, the building was barely
serviceable as an office building and public meetings are held
at Old City Hall on Greene Street, which is a historic treasure.
At Wednesday's meeting, city Commissioner Clayton Lopez
made a speech about keeping City Hall in Old Town. He point-
ed out that the city markets itself directly linked with that pre-
served history in both public and private buildings.
One idea floated two years ago looked at a joint-develop-
ment agreement with the School Board trading prime water-
front real estate at Trumbo Point for a city hall and affordable
housing development. But what the School Board got in trade
was very niuch murky and the deal'never got beyond prelimi-
nary talks.
Ditto for talks last year about Glynn Archer Elementary
School. Or before that the Harris School property.
Lots of talk and not much action.
With the city facing an uncertain economy over the next year
or longer, now is not the time to be creating big public works
projects. Just look at the Vandenberg debacle and it's easy to
see how civic pride can overwhelm common sense.
Before any location or architectural work is done, wouldn't
it make more sense to compare costs and line up alternatives?
Hard times can mean getting a good deal and generous terms
on a commercial property that would be cheaper than building
new.
Let's see realistic cost comparisons before deciding on the
right path and pace to move forward.

Keys Opinion


Voting process in Monroe County is beyond reproach


EDITOR:
I had the privilege (as is possible for any
citizen) to watch one of the most fundamen-
tal hands-on processes of our democracy
when I witnessed the canvassing of absentee
ballots for Monroe County. This microcosm
of our nation's election process should make
everyone proud.
On Nov. 1 and 3 and on Election Day, I
was a silent observer of the election supervi-
sor's staff, led by Assistant Supervisor Joyce
Griffin (orchestrating the team in the absence
of Supervisor Harry Sawyer, who could not
participate because of his active candidacy),
and the three-member Canvassing Board
made up of Judge Wayne Miller, Judge Ruth
Becker and Monroe County Tax Collector
Danise Henriquez.
They and a dozen paid and volunteer poll
workers and Coral Shores High School
exemplars went through the extremely
tedious process of lugging, sorting, opening,
separating, stacking, counting, verifying and
validating more than 11,000 absentee and
overseas ballots:
The process was laborious but the mood
was cheerful while all involved went about
their nonpartisan tasks of assuring to the best
of their abilities that as many votes as possi-


ble were -counted.
One of the more fascinating and untold
facts is that those who fax or mail paper bal-
lots from overseas were represented by either
a judge or Monroe County's tax collector
who, on their behalf, filled out a card-stock
version of their paper ballot that was verified
by another Canvassing Board member so that
the optical scanner could count their votes.
Sadly, there were some (too many) absen-
tee ballots that were rejected when the
majority of the Canvassing. Board was unable
to determine that the signature on the absen-
tee ballot was that of the voter as shown on
their voter registration card or driver's
license.
So while the pillars of our community
have done their best to assure our votes
count, we. need to do our part to make sure
that bur voter registration cards have a prop-
er signature and that our absentee ballots
show something close to that signature when
'it is submitted.
I was proud to have done a small part to
reinforce the. efforts of my fellow citizens as
they counted our votes and I thank all for
their graciousness.

Candidate learns lessons on campaign trail


EDITOR:
The voters have spoken loudly and deter-
mined that I should remain as adjunct profes-
sor of political science at Florida Keys
Community College.
I want to congratulate my opponent, Harry
Sawyer, on his, win and to commend him and
his Supervisor of Elections Office staff for
the fine job they are doing for the citizens of
Monroe County.
My candidacy sought to give voters a
choice in this race for the first time in 16
years and to call attention to the need for
additional civic education from the Elections
Office, particularly with regard to giving vot-
ers more information about constitutional
amendments and other hon-candidate-related
matters on the ballot.
I also wanted to raise concerns about
ensuring that everyone to whom an absentee
ballot is mailed outside of this state is truly
entitled to vote in Monroe County. I believe I
was successful in my first and third aims and
hope that the supervisor will give considera-
tion to my second aim, as is done by a num-
ber of other elections supervisors in the state.
In any case, I want to thank those who
supported me with both their time and
money. In particular, I want to thank my
campaign manager Tricia Eables, my treasur-
er Mabry Binnicker and my partner, Lee
Skillington, for their patience these past
seven months.
I was proud to be a voice in the wilder-
ness by limiting contributions to my cam-
paign to no more than $100 per person,
though state law allows contributions of up


to $500. The amount of money spent on cam-
paigning at all levels is alarming. Fortunately
we live in a place where more personal face-
to-face campaigning is still possible.
I shall certainly treasure the many new
friends I have made and my increased knowl-
edge of all of the Keys and having been a
part of the highest turnout election in Keys
history.
As I return to the classroom, I shall try to
take to my students lessons learned from this
whole experience, particularly the responsi-
bility of every citizen to exercise our most
precious right the right to vote.

Keys Opinion


County future's bright


EDITOR:
To all the people who voted
for me for County Commission,
I want to thank you very much
for wanting me to represent you
in the county. To those who
voted for my opponent, I want
to thank you for participating in
a historic election in America.
To the winner Kim
Wigington: Congratulations and
thank you for running a very
good campaign that focused
just on the issues. As I said in
our debates, the citizens of


Monroe County should be con-
fident about our financial pic-
ture in the future because of the
candidates who ran this year. I
believe Kim will be able to bal-
ance the budget and return us to
fiscal responsibility.
Kim and I became friends
over the course of the campaign
so I would ask everyone to
please give her support as she
starts a new era in Monroe
County.

No modular homes on U.S. 1


EDITOR:
A big problem looming on
the horizon for Big Coppitt
Key is the county wants to
change the fabric of the com-
munity by increasing density
and allowing multiple
dwelling units in a single-
family residential community.
I've been here for 23
years. U.S. 1 was zoned for
business only. The second lots
off U.S. 1 were zoned RU 2
(duplex) and the third lot and
to the bayside were RU 1
(single family). Somewhere
the county changed this zon-
ing to allow multiple single-
family dwellings on U.S. 1.
Why and without the resi-
dents on Big Coppitt having a
chance to express their feel-
ings?
The county and Habitat for
Humanity of the Lower Keys
and Key West want to change
the demographics and density
of Big Coppitt. Let me say
Habitat does a remarkable job
and has our best interest at
heart most of the time. But I
believe their good intentions
are misguided this time.
The county and Habitat
want to build 12 modular
homes on U.S. 1 across from
Circle K.
I understand the building
permit has been issued, but
now they want the Planning


Department to allow zero-lot-
line setbacks. Habitat also
wants to build 18 more sin-
gle-family modular homes on
U.S. 1 two blocks further
west between Southernmost
Furniture and the firehouse.
Are you serious?
Consider the traffic impact
at Old Boca Chica Road and
U.S. 1. All residents on
Geiger Key and Shark Key
and Big Coppitt will seriously
be affected. U.S. 1 lots should
be reserved for business only.
I think the newly constitut-
ed County Commission
should look into this and
reconsider. We the people are
speaking out and petitioning
the Planning Department. W,
the people will have some
new commissioners that will
listen to who put them in
office and represent them
instead of the big-money
developers.
We have invested a lot of
money and time to develop
our area. There are a lot of
repossessed and short-sale
homes available for Habitat to
convert. They have already
taken advantage of the situa-
tion and should continue in
that direction. No single-fam-
ily modulars on U.S. I in Big
Coppitt.

Keys buck the belief


of party-line voting


If you want to know the secret of winning
elections, you got plenty of instruction with
Tuesday's record-setting event.
More Keys voters participated in this impor-
tant election cycle than ever. Voter registration
drives added inore new voters than ever, and
the battle over issues and ideas actually
brought out some first-time voters who may
have registered and never bothered to vote
before.
While others are focused on the lessons in
Barack Obama's win, I think there are lessons
to be learned closer to home.
By far the biggest upset Tuesday came in
Democrat Dennis Ward's win over two-term
incumbent Mark Kohl, a Republican who beat
an entrenched Democrat for the state attorney
post back in 2000.
Some argue that political party
had nothing to do with Ward's
1,185-vote victory over the incum-
bent Republican. But an analysis of
precinct voting reveals that party
played a far larger role than most
thought.
Kohl got his largest precinct win
in Ocean Reef, where the GOP
next to a candidate's name general-
ly is golden although later I'll
point out where that GOP branding
didn't work for another high-pro-
file Republican contestant. Wayne I
Precinct 33 at Ocean Reef has a Keynotel
5:1 ratio of registered Republicans
to Democrats. In that one precinct,
Kohl left with a 707-vote margin over Ward.
If Kohl had managed to attract enough
Republican voters in other precincts, he
would have been the winner, not the loser.
Ward, best known in the Upper Keys, man-
aged only modest margins of victory in most
of the Upper Keys' 10 precincts. Where he
blew away Kohl was in the Lower Keys and
Key West, always a Democratic stronghold.
In the 11 precincts that run from the Jaycees
Clubhouse on Flagler Avenue to the Baptist
Temple on Stock Island, Ward ran up a 2,763-
vote lead over his opponent.
That's six times the margin Ward managed
among the remaining 22 precincts.
Middle Keys precincts went for Kohl, who
grabbed a 1,086-vote margin in precincts
from Marathon to Plantation Key. But then
Kohl and Ward split the Upper Keys precincts
where both live.
Add it all up, and Democrat Ward beat the
Republican because a sweep in the
Democrats' Key West stronghold made the
difference.
A countywide race for the District 3 County
Commission seat saw an even bigger sweep
for a Democrat, as Heather Carruthers fin-
ished with more than 63 percent of all the
votes cast in that three-way contest.
Republican Carlos Rojas, who had knocked
off political icon Sonny McCoy in the pri-


mary, managed to get 32 percent of the votes
cast and Sloan Bashinsky was left at 4.5 per-
cent.
But Rojas didn't beat Carruthers in a single
precinct. Not one.
Even always reliably Republican Ocean
Reef gave Democrat Carruthers a nearly 2-1
margin in Precinct 33, which demonstrates
crossover voting..
The flip side of that story can be found in
analyzing precinct-by-precinct returns for the
District 1 contest, in which Republican Kim
Wigington beat Democrat Bill Estes with
nearly a 20 percent margin.
Estes, chairman of the Democratic
Executive Committee in the Keys, managed
to beat the Republican by 384 votes in
Bahama Village's Precinct 4. But
that was the only precinct where
Estes showed any significant-lead
over Wigington.
Count up his votes in Key West's
Democratic strongholds and he
finished with only a 719-vote mar-
gin over Wigington (and more than
half that came from Bahama
Village).
From Big Coppitt Key to Ocean
Reef, it was Wigington all the way,
racking up margins of several hun-
dred votes in each precinct, includ-
larkham ing a 747-vote lead from Ocean
Publisher Reef.
Just about the tinie you begin to
think, ah hah, I've finally figured it
out, you discover voting patterns that disrupt
any party-line trend.
In the race for superintendent of schools,
incumbent Randy Acevedo, a Democrat,
trounced his Republican challenger, Fred
Colvard. Out of 33 precincts and a
Republican voter registration lead of 1,315,
Colvard managed to beat Acevedo in only
three precincts: Cudjoe Key with an 11-vote
margin, Key Colony Beach with a 35-vote
margin, and Islamorada with an 18-vote mar-
gin. Even Ocean Reef gave Acevedo a 252-
vote lead.
That may explain Acevedo's 9,067-vote
margin of victory; he grabbed 61.8 percent of
all votes cast in the race.
There are other interesting patterns to be
found in other countywide races, including
Elections Supervisor Harry Sawyer, a
Republican incumbent, winning nearly 65
percent of the votes cast in an election in
which Ervin Higgs, an incumbent Democrat,
handily beat GOP challenger Chris Sante, fin-
ishing with nearly 62 percent of the votes cast
for property appraiser.
Add it all up and it's clear that party labels
don't mean much here in the Keys.
Somehow, isn't that further evidence that
Tuesday's election was really about change,
after all?

Law and disorder?


Transition
in prosecutor's
office rocky
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The legal drama surrounding
the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office this week has
taken place outside the court-
room.
In the wake of Tuesday's elec-
tion that saw challenger Dennis
Ward defeat two-term prosecutor
Mark Kohl-, relations between the
two camps remain rocky and
that's being kind.
'"There are so many rumors
being spread out there, it's almost
become a hoot," Kohl said. "It
appears the negative campaign-
ing has not ended."
"There are people who seem
to be trying to make this transi-
tion difficult," Kohl said. "I'm
not saying it's Dennis."
After taking leave time to
campaign, the Republican Kohl
returned to work Friday. He
remains in office until Jan. 5. The


Democrat Ward officially begins
his four-year term Jan. 6.
Kohl scoffed at reports that he
would remain on leave through
the end of his term.
"I'm here. I just want to keep
the system working," he said.
"That's what I said I would do
when I first was elected as state
attorney, and I'm going to go out
doing it."
Catherine Vogel, one of
Kohl's two chief deputies, report-
edly has left the State Attorney's
Office, using her remaining leave
until January. She couldn't be
reached at press time.
Kohl said he asked Vogel to
speak with Ward about helping
with the transition. A Thursday
parking-lot conversation between
Ward and Vogel didn't go well.
Ward summarized it: "I said
all during the campaign that I
planned to cut down on the top-
heavy salaries, and I intend to do
it."
He said he didn't plan to
retain Vogel or Kohl's other
deputy assistant, J. Jefferson
Overby.
Ward said he has made only

one manageri-
al hiring deci-
sion, to bring
fo r m e r
Assistant State
Attorney
Colleen
Dunne back to
head the
Upper Keys
prosecutor's


office.
"I'm not the state attorney
yet," Ward said. "I still have a job
to do [as an assistant public
defender]. I
was back in
court at 8:30
a.m. the day

f tion."
Ward said
he would
begin focusing
on the State
WARD Attorney's
Office after he steps down from
the Public Defender's Office,
probably in early December.
Kohl said, "I just want to
accomplish a smooth transition.
If that will happen or not, I don't
know, but it's my ambition."
No other staffers have submit-
ted resignations, Kohl said,
"except the people who told me
before the election they were
leaving."
Kohl said he plans to go into
private practice.
Like Ward, Dunne previously
worked as an assistant state attor-
ney under Kohl. She left in 2003
after three years. Following a
stint with the local Public
Defender's Office, she has been
in private practice as a criminal
defense attorney in Miami.
"I'm absolutely coming
back," Dunne said Friday. "I'm
so excited, it's like a dream come
true."
She said, "I've kept in close
touch and watched what's going
on down there. I still have some
cases in the Keys, so I'm still
involved with some of the issues.
It's thrilling to have the opportuni-
ty to get in there and work on
them."
The Monroe County State
Attorney's Office has 18 assistant
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 annual budget is around
$4.5 million.

Ballots to be rerun today


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney @keynoter.com


It remained unclear late Friday
when Monroe County residents
would know whether Teagan
Slaton or Mary Vanden Brook is
the new Group 4 Circuit Court
judge.
"There will be a machine count
tomorrow," Assistant Supervisor
of Elections Joyce Griffin said
Friday. That means all ballots will
be fed through the processing
machines a second time.
When poll results came in
Tuesday night, Slaton's lead was
a meager nine votes, 16,442 to
16,433.
On Wednesday, the Elections
Canvassing Board reviewed pro-


visional ballots and increased
Slaton's lead to 15 votes.'
A ballot is deemed provisional
when staff at the Supervisor of
Elections Office identifies a dis-
crepancy such as a signature on a
voter registration card not match-
ing the signature on the mailed-in
absentee ballot or improperly
marked ballots.
After the expected machine
recount today, results will be
faxed to the state Division of
Elections in Tallahassee.
Once that's done, "They [state
authorities] have to order the man-
ual looking at over- and under-
votes" by hand, Griffin said.
An over-vote means a ballot


When the winners


officially take office


as it pertains to the judicial race
has a mark for both candidates.
An under-vote means that neither
candidate was selected.
Apparently, "It happens a lot,"
Griffin said.
The Division of Elections has
to get involved because a judicial
race is not overseen by county or
municipal authorities. "I've never
done a recount for a state elec-
tion," Griffin said. "It's very odd."
Whoever wins takes the place
of Judge Sandra Taylor, who is
retiring. The term is for six years
and the pay is $140,000 annually.

city's new code, Planning
Director George Garrett says.
A provision in the city's land
development regulations con-
fines adult entertainment to
industrially zoned areas.
The former Mermaid Club
was in Old Town at 15th Street
.and U.S. 1, while the only
industrial area in the city is on
the other end of town, behind
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Had the Mermaid Club
closed fewer than 18 months
ago it was last open in 2002
Garrett said it likely would
have been allowed to reopen
with the same use.
"The reality is they are a
non-conforming use, like any-
thing else. If you [had] a com-
mercial building in a residential
area and you cease to exist for
18 months, you have to come
back conforming," Garrett said.
Jack Galardi, chief execu-
tive and financial officer of
Galardi South Enterprises,
owns the building. According
to Yahoo! Finance, Galardi
South operates 10 nightclubs
featuring live adult entertain-
ment in Florida, Georgia and
South Carolina.
Bob Bordeaux is an' inde-
pendent consultant representing
Galardi on the construction of a
new building in Marathon. He
said the building was purchased
from former owner Mark Kern
two years ago and that the city


has known of their intent since.
"I don't know if it's grandfa-
thered in or not but the license
has been kept up for the last six
years," Bordeaux said, adding
there is no property available in
the city's industrial area.
Bordeaux said Galardi holds
up-to-date package liquor and
adult entertainment licenses.
But Garrett said just holding
an adult entertainment license
likely would not be enough to
reopen the business.
"Our code doesn't speak to
maintaining licenses, it speaks
to maintaining the use," he
said.
Garrett said Galardi does
have demolition permits the
former building was knocked
down in the past month but
no approval from the city to do
anything else with the property.
The city in 2006 invoked a
zoning-in-progress ordinance
to stop a Miami businessman
from attempting to reopen the
Mermaid Club. At the time, the
city was drafting now-complete
land development regulations
that include restrictions on
adult entertainment.
Joe Sora and Abe Citron
opened the Mermaid Club in
1997, eventually selling the
club and adjacent Marathon
Sports Bar to Kern. In 2001,
Kern and past owners went
through a legal spat over the
rights to a liquor license, and
the business closed shortly
after.

We Have Money To Lend!


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The members of a newly
assembled Marathon City
Council hope for one thing from
Monday night's mayoral selec-
tion process: It won't turn into
the fiasco it has in recent years.
"I'm expecting it's not going
to be quick and easy," newly
elected Councilwoman Ginger
Snead said. "I'm going to do my
best to allay that when we get
into the meeting."
"I have not made my mind up
as to my ideal mayor. All I hope is
the council, once I'm sworn in,
will treat this with respect and
[won't] cause friction so we have
problems thereafter," City Council
newcomer Dick Ramsay said.
When outgoing Vice Mayor
Chris Bull was named mayor for a
second time in April 2007, it took
two meetings and several rounds
of voting to make it happen.
Bull's term was cut short
when voters approved a referen-
dum moving the City Council
election from March to
November. Many assumed Bull
would remain mayor, but inexact
wording in the city charter led to
another selection just eight
months after he was named.
That selection took three
rounds of voting, as Bull, who
called the selection a "formality,"
twice selected himself. The other


council members didn't support
him, though, and Pete
Worthington was chosen mayor.
"I just pray we don't get into
another standoff situation where
nobody wants to support anyone
else," Worthington, who won re-
election Tuesday, said.
. Worthington said he won't
throw his own name in the hat but
if nominated, he would gladly
serve another mayoral term.
Despite being largely a ceremoni-
al position, Worthington said the
position requires representing the
city at a wide array of events.
"It's an honor but ... it's defi-
nitely extra work and it's an extra
commitment," he said.
Councilman Don Vasil said
with Worthington serving the
past year, the natural progression
might be for himself or Council-
man Mike Cinque to be named.
"If the council members have
the guts to choose a mayor who
will not bow to special interests
and whose priorities are the revi-
talization of Marathon's econo-
my and reduced government
spending, I would be honored to
serve as mayor," Vasil said.
The City Council meets at
5:30 p.m. Monday at the
Marathon Government Center.
Snead and Ramsay replace Bull
and Marilyn Tempest, who ran
unsuccessfully for re-election.

Suspect indicted for rape


Peffer originally
arrested for
bogus funerals
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Charged with staging unli-
censed funerals, accused con man
John Peffer is back in the Monroe
County jail and likely will stay
there.
.The local fraud charges from
2006 could be the least of
Peffer's trouble.
He is now under indictment in
his native Ohio on six counts of
rape, three counts of kidnapping
and assorted counts involving sex
with a minor.
"We got wind that he had been
indicted in Ohio," Assistant
Monroe County State Attorney
Joe Spataro said. "It took a while
to get squared away with what
was going up there. Once we did,
we filed a motion Oct. 3 to have
his pre-trial bond revoked."
"Getting indicted by a grand
jury in Columbus was enough of
a probable cause to revoke his

bond," Spataro
said.
Monroe
County Circuit
Judge Mark
Jones agreed,
and issued a
notice to
Peffer, 40, to
return to
M o n r o e


County.
Peffer, free on bond from the
sexual assault charges in -Ohio,
returned to the Keys voluntarily
to surrender.
He almost made it. Peffer was
stopped for speeding in the
Upper Keys Wednesday. He was
arrested immediately when a
computer search revealed the
Ohio warrant.
Spataro said the local prosecu-
tor's office has not received
details of the pending case in
Ohio.
"This is one of the more
unusual cases I've come across,"
said Spataro, who was the prose-
cutor assigned in the 2006 fraud
and theft case.
The funeral case made nation-
al news when Peffer was arrested
on charges that he was arranging
funerals and cremations in the
Lower Keys without holding a
required state license.
Peffer received at least
$22,000 from people who
believed they were dealing with a
licensed funeral home, according
to court records.
He also faces misdemeanor
counts of posing as a funeral
director and transporting a body
without a license.
While pocketing money from
the bereaved families, Peffer took
shortcuts with arrangements, vic-


tims told investigators with the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
In at least two cases, he report-
edly transported bodies in a white
sport-ttility vehicle rather than a
hearse.
Peffer also is charged with
stealing the SUV that he bought
from his -former employer, but
never paid for.
Peffer had worked at the Big
Pine Key office of Dean Lopez
Funeral Home, a reputable busi-
ness in Key West.
After being laid off, Peffer
forwarded the branch office's
telephone number to himself,
according to law enforcement.
He then- spoke with family mem-
bers who called the number to
arrange a service with Dean
Lopez.
In one case, Peffer reportedly
enlisted a woman Sheriff's
Office investigators suspect it
was Peffer's girlfriend to con--
duct a funeral service. The family
had requested a priest.
All four bodies in the cases
reportedly were buried or cremat-
ed.
The fraudulent funerals were
discovered after Robert Dean of
Dean Lopez learned his firm was
listed as the attending funeral
home in a death for which he had
no information.
Staff at a Miami crematorium
also reported that Peffer used an
invalid funeral-director authori-
zation to order a body's crema-
tion.
Peffer also is accused of car
theft for buying the white SUV
from Robert Dean, then halting
payment on his check.
He was released from Monroe
County Jail in September 2007
after posting bonds totaling
approximately $68,000, court
records indicate..

Miami-Dade
asks the FAA
for permission
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Miami-Dade Air Rescue,
which has been flying trauma
patients out of the Upper Keys for
free since the 1990s, could soon
begin charging patients' insurance
companies for the service.
Miami-Dade's free flights into
the Upper Keys above mile
marker 95 were cited by oppo-
nents of a Nov. 4 referendum ask-
ing if a Keyswide air ambulance
service should be funded with
property taxes.
Ray Barreto, special opera-
tions chief for Miami-Dade's air
rescue division, said by e-mail
that his department applied sever-
al years ago for a type of certifi-
cation from the Federal Aviation
Administration that gives opera-.
tors the option of seeking reim-
bursement from passengers for
the cost of flights.
The department is still in the
application process. Barreto said
the certification, known as FAR-
Part 135, would be a way for
Miami-Dade County to recoup
some of the costs of flying its heli-
copter to and from the Upper Keys.
"It would also give us the
option to charge insurance com-
panies for air transports, thereby
partially offsetting the cost to
[Miami-Dade County] taxpay-
ers," Barreto wrote.
Barreto said the controversy
over the campaign to create a tax
to fund Monroe County's
TraumaStar air ambulance heli-
copter was not a factor in his'
department seeking the FAR-Part
135 certification.
"The current issues surround-
ing emergency air transport in
Monroe County are not a factor
in MDFR's application." Barreto
wrote. "In fact, we began our
application several years ago, and
we are still in that process now."
Monroe County officials said
tax support is needed for the
Keys' TraumaStar service
because billing patients is not
enough to pay to keep the heli-
copter operating. Officials have
said TraumaStar costs Monroe
County about $2 million a year.
The Upper Keys relies mostly
on Miami-Dade Air Rescue and
the private air ambulance service


LifeNet for emergency air trans-
port. TraumaStar, based out of
Marathon since 2002, mostly
serves the Middle and Lower
Keys. It is seldom called to Upper
Keys emergencies, which is why
its opponents say Key Largo res-
idents shouldn't be taxed to pay
for it.
Sergio Garcia, Key Largo
Volunteer Fire Rescue chief, said
the reason his department and the
Key Largo Volunteer Ambulance
Corps call LifeNet and Miami-
Dade Air Rescue more than
TraumaStar is so the Middle and
Lower Keys won't be without a
needed resource.
"The incident commander
makes the call. We have no
heartache over who the helicopter
belongs to," said Garcia.
Garcia said he and his depart-


Miami-Dade Air
Rescue could
soon begin
charging
patients'
insurance
companies for
the service.

ment have stayed out of the cam-
paign to block the TraumaStar
referendum, which passed by
about 3,000 votes in Tuesday's
election. The five-member board
that oversees the fire and ambu-
lance corps' budgets the Key
Largo Fire Rescue and
Emergency Medical Services
District has not been impartial.
It took out advertisements in
several newspapers urging Keys
residents to vote against the refer-
endum. The free Miami-Dade Air
Rescue service was not men-
tioned in the ad. But fire and
EMS district Commissioner Tom
Tharp had said it is a reason why
the Upper Keys does not- need
TraumaStar.
Tharp could not be reached by
press time about Miami-Dade's
application for the new certifica-
tion.
Baretto said the agreement to
fly to the Upper Keys never
included a deal to assist Monroe
County without compensation.


"There was originally a cost to
Monroe County associated this
assistance, but the FAA eventual-
ly specified that transport fees
were not allowed while operating
under [the department's current
license]," Barreto said. "Once
these charges were disallowed,
MDFR never attempted to have
the agreement terminated
because life safety was always
our paramount concern with
mutual aid to any of our neigh-
bors."
Barreto added that emergency
officials in the Keys should not
"consider our services as a free
front-line replacement to their
own provisions for emergency air
transport services."

Wednesday, many of the com-

Commissioner Clayton Lopez
was adamant that City Hall

Bed taxes flat

the past year


Marathon down
12.5 percent
from last year
By LARRY KAHN
Ikahn@keynoter.com
A tumbling economy and a
rash of threatening storms in
August and September led bed
taxes collected by the Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council to remain basically flat
the past year.
For the 12 months of the
TDC's fiscal year that ended
Sept. 30, $15.04 million in bed
taxes were collected, up just 1
percent from the previous year's
collection of $14.89 million.
"I'm glad we came out as
good as we did considering the
economy," TDC office manager
Linda Stuart said.
The year-end report, released
Thursday, also shows that
Marathon continues to drag down
the Keys as a whole.
Four of the Keys' five TDC
districts were down in fiscal year


2008 from 2007. Only Key West
saw an increase, of 7.5 percent.
But Marathon dropped a
whopping 12.5 percent, far more
than the Lower Keys' fall of 5.4
percent, Islamorada's drop of 42
percent and Key Largo's
decrease of 1.1 percent.
"From an economic develop-
ment standpoint, we have a
proactive chamber," says Britt
Myers, president of the Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce. "We support the
TDC and its efforts but we also
understand in these economic
times, we will have to take our
marketing and economic devel-
opment initiatives into our own
hands to some extent."
SHe added, "This is a good
example of why we are not going
to completely put all of our hopes
of economic development into
the hands of an outside organiza-
tion. It's the responsibility of our
own chamber to take our own
extra initiative on tourism and
business development."

Protect your credit limit


It directly
affects ability
to get a loan
By ALICIA BETANCOURT
Keynoter Contributor


With the credit market
becoming increasingly restric-
tive and banks worried about
what's happening with borrow-
ers, some credit card users may
suddenly find themselves over
their limit.
Banks can change your credit
limit at will it can be reduced
with very little notice should the
bank become worried about your
ability to pay or need to reduce
its risk.
Your credit limit is one of the
main ingredients of your credit
score, a three-digit number
developed by credit reporting
agencies. They're used to deter-
mine borrowers' credit-worthi-
ness for loans. If your credit
limit goes down, so does your


score along with your ability
to qualify for a loan.
Here are a few things you can
do to reduce the chances your
credit limit will be cut:
Make all payments on
time.
Pay more than the mini-
mum each time.
Avoid making out your
credit cards.
Don't shop around for a
great deal on other credit cards.
Keeping balances well under
your limit shows lenders you
have discipline and helps build
your score.
To maintain a good score,
banks recommend that con-
sumers use only 10 percent of
their available credit. For exam-
ple, someone with a credit limit
of $100,000 should never carry a
balance over $10,000. But in
today's climate, however, that
$100,000 limit could be cut to
$50,000, meaning that the
$10,000 balance now represents


20 percent of your credit limit,
and thus your credit score is
dinged.
Your score could go down
even if you regularly pay off
your minimum balance and your
loans. You may not notice until
you apply for an auto loan, mort-
gage or a new credit card.
Not only will your score be
lower, but lenders are requiring a
higher score for approval.
Having a lower credit score can
save you thousands of dollars on
interest payments (to crunch the
numbers, try using the financial
tools at Fairlsaac's consumer
site, www.myfico.com).
Credit repair is also harder
than it was in the past. Banks are
not likely to be as flexible,
which means that you, as a con-
sumer, are responsible for pay-
ing your debt.
However, some fundamentals
remain. For example, stay away
from store cards and pay off bal-
ances and keep them low -
even better, at zero.

Lavarski Smith opened
Perfume Sensations with
his wife, Sopheap.

Perfume

Sensations
Town Square Mall
Marathon

What started out as a part-
time job in Miami has now
become a career for
Marathon's Lavarski Smith.
Smith and wife Sopheap
have opened Perfume
Sensations, a shop selling
high-end fragrances and
other products, at 11400
Overseas Highway in the
Town Square Mall.
By total chance, the 20-
year-old Smith said, he met a
man selling perfume on
Miami street covers and
thought it would be a good
way to earn extra money
while attending school.
But after a year on the
mainland, the 2006
Marathon High School grad-
uate moved back to the
Keys. He quickly got back
into the perfume business,
passing out flyers on the
streets of Marathon and
building a reliable clientele.
"I was selling so much that
I thought I should make it a
career," Smith said. That led
him to open an actual shop.
Perfume Sensations sells
Burberry, Versace, Dolce &
Gabbana and other name-
brand perfumes; handbags,
sunglasses and wallets.
Sniith paid the goal now
is to grow the business
throughout the Keys. He and
Sopheap are preparing to
launch a Web site in the
coming weeks, www
.perfumesensations.net.
The store is open from 10
a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday
through Saturday.

London, where there's been a
bomb threat, to the ambassador's

more on that in a bit.
"The Amorous Ambassador"

The secretary, played by

the star in this first play of the

always right in the middle of

even while playing a too-familiar

involvement with the theatre's
productions. She was stage man-
ager last year for "California
Suite" and was the choreogra-
pher for "Me and My Girl" and
"Cactus Flower."
The two-act comedy, "The
Amorous Ambassador," was
written by Michael Parker, a
Florida resident and was first
performed at the Delray Beach
Playhouse in 1990.
"The Amorous Ambassador"
tells the story of the American
ambassador to London, Harry
Douglas (played by Michael
Edwards). Douglas is intent on
making the most of his position,
and has plotted to spend the '
weekend with the neighbor lady.
But all does not go as planned.
The ambassador, his wife
(played by Cheryl Wilcox), and
their daughter Debbi (played by
Rebecca Daily) have all mistak-
enly believed that they would
each have the country home to
themselves and Debbi's
boyfriend Joe (Justin Ahearn)

the U.S. But they all end up run-

ends up in a dress. And because
it's England, there's a butler
(played by Arnie Steinmetz)
hanging around. He's caught up
in the mayhem, as when his hand
ends up on Miss Baker's rear.
If you've been to any of the
theatre's productions over the
last 50+ years, you might recog-
nize Steinmetz. His first acting
gig with the theatre was in 1956
when he played the grandfather
in "You Can't Take it With You."
He'reprised that role in 2006, 50
years later, and is still going
strong in this season's "The
Amorous Ambassador."
Steinmetz's wife Reit and
Connie Mingle are in charge of
costumes for the show, which is
produced by Claudia McEwen.
Kiel Kear is the stage manager,
and Tom O'Neil is operating the
lights.
Tickets for "The Amorous
Ambassador" are $18 and can be
purchased at the theatre's box
office Mon.-Fri. from 10-2 or at
the door the night of the per-
formance.
The Marathon Community
Theatre is next to Boater's World

The last stories of Captain Tony Tarracino

Brad Manard .
The year was 2002, and
Tony was telling Manard, a
school superintendent from
Iowa, what his friend Shel
Silverstein had once said to
him: That books are forever.
"I.want to live forever,"
said Tony. "My ego's so bad.
I know I won't live forever,
not unless we get this book.
written."
Captain Tony's life came to
an end on Saturday, Nov. 1,
just days after "Life Lessons
of a Legend" appeared in
bookstores in Key West. His
stories are to be found here
Son these pages; and as long as
people turn the pages, Captain
; Tony will live on.
Tony Tarracino and Brad
Manard met in 2001 when
Manard came to Key West
with his wife. They were par-
rot heads from Iowa who'd
wandered in and met Tony at
Captain Tony's Saloon.
"You and I, Brad. We're
going to do things together.
I've got that feeling, the old
sea captain and one-time
mayor told Manard.
The real work began on
"Life Lessons of a Legend" in
2002, when Manard took
leave from his school district
in Solon, Iowa, to come down
to Key West to begin to
record Captain Tony's stories.
He'd never published any-
thing in.his life, but Tony, for
some reason, trusted that he
was the man for the-job.
"I'm going to bring you,
into my world," he'd said to
Manard. And he didi
The book starts slow, with
Manard's first-person account
of touring the island with the
man The New York Times
once called 'The Salt of Key
West,'
The author leans hard on
the contrast he so keenly-feels
between his own life and
what he suoposes is


Tarracino's life of wine,
women and song.
But the book really begins
when Tony starts telling his
life story in direct quotes.
"I lived surrounded by
poor people with wonderful
hearts," says Tarracino,
remembering his childhood in
a Jewish neighborhood in
New Jersey, just across the
rivei from Manhattan. ..
Tarracino has a way with
words and storytelling. But it
isn't only his style that makes
you want to keep reading. As
the reader, rather, you feel
that there is really something
to be learned from these soto-
ries.
If there is one theme in the
book and one thing that ties
these 'lessons' together it is
compassion.
"It's the only word in the
dictionary that means any-
hing ." says Tarracino on
page 24. "You can throw all
the other words away. The
only important word is com-
passion."
Just before, he'd told


I'm going to
bring you into
my world.'

had replied: "It's your moth-

your mother."
There are stories in "Life
Lessons of a Legend" that
won't surprise you, and some
that will.
It's not likely that many
people in Key West know that
Tony Tarracino had a wife
and kids in New.Jersey before
ever coming to Key West.
And that the ladies man.was'
once a company man.
As Tarracino tells it in
"Life Lessons of a Legend,"
he worked as an Efficiency
Expert at a Boeing plant in
Seattle during WWII, with his
wife and three children left
behind in New Jersey.
"Something happened-to
me in Seattle. Something that
wasn't good," he says.
When he went back East,
his marriage broke down, and
he took up residence in his
brother's cellar. He learned
how to add dice, and began
gambling. And this is what

He was caught trying to
swindle the mob-controlled
bookies who ran the horse
betting in New Jersey, and
was beaten and left for dead
at the city dump in Newark.
Tarracino fled south to
Florida with $10,000 of the
money he'd made on horse
betting, and blew it all at the
Hialeah Park race track. He
hitched a ride from
Homestead to-Key-West on a
milk truck with $12 in his
pocket. The year was 1948.
"Over 50 years ago I found

co-writer. And this is just the

'A People Sticks
Its Neck Out'
A Show of Politics and Peace
.by Janet Mueller
Through November 15

Stop by the Armory any
weekday through.Nov. 15 to
view this exhibition about poli-
tics and peace. In one area,
works in mixed media express
the darkness of hatred and greed


and question the morals of war.
Bold mixed-media works
explore the notion of truth in our
political landscape. In another
corer, a second body of work
offers an explosion of color:
where images painted in total
abstraction on very large canvas-
es relay feelings of freedom and
peace. As a third group in the
show, 13 three-dimensional
forms resembling people, are
assembled in another section.

Adoption 'gave me something



I'd wanted all my life'

Nearly two dozen Keys kids looking for loving families


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


This month is special for
Darlene and Richard Olden: It
marks the first anniversary of
when their family became com-
plete.
Last November, they were
able to complete the process of
adopting James, age 3, who they
had fostered since he. was 13
months old.
And they say it's all due to
Wesley House Family Services,
an umbrella organization for fam-
ily and child welfare agencies
throughout the Keys.
"They were great. It just hap-
pened so fast. We had zero prob-
lems. They gave me something
I'd wanted all of my life,"
Darlene said.
Richard said the couple, who
live in Key Haven, had previous-
ly tried to adopt but "nothing ever
happened. We tried to get put into
adoption but that didn't go well.
So we got into fostering."
That was when James came
into their lives. The Oldens
immediately knew they needed to
make James a permanent part of
their family. "The decision was-
n't even a decision,"'Richard
said.
At first, James had a hard time
acclimating to a new family-ori-
ented life.
"It was rough," Darlene said.
"He had some issues and prpb-
lems. He wouldn't let you rock
him or cuddle him. We had no
clue why, but it all dissipated."
Nov. 15 is National Adoption
Day, and the Oldens and James
are evidence that a child's dis-
rupted life can be reversed
through adoption.
Currently there are 20 other
Monroe County children who
have been placed with adoptive
families and are awaiting court-
approved finalization. Another 18
kids have actually been adopted
this year. Laura Breedon, adop-
tions supervisor for Wesley
House, expects another adoption
to be finalized later this month
and several more in December.

surround them with love. Earlier this year, Breedon suc-
A big part of Breedon's job is cessfully paired two Key West


African-American children with
a white family from Buffalo, N.Y.
Although that adoption -proved
successful, Breedon said finding
homes for African-Americans is
difficult.
"I think there's still some
racial barriers," she said.
Breedon and co-worker Beth
Moyes also pegged Florida's gay
adoption ban, which will become
part of Florida's Constitution fol-
lowing voter approval on
Tuesday, as a hurdle to overcome.
"That ban removes a large
percentage of potential adoptive
families," said Breedon.
However, in September -
before the vote on the constitu-
tional amendment Key West
attorney Wayne Smith received a
ruling from Circuit Court Judge
David Audlin that allowed him to
legally adopt. Moyes said, "I
hope that's a step in the right
direction."
Last year on National Adoption
Day, courts nationwide sealed the
adoption of 4,300 children.
Wesley House and Our Kids
of Miami-Dade/Monroe are host-
ing an adoption celebration ,
at Boondocks Grill and Draft
House on Ramrod Key. Food will
be provided and activities will
include mini-golf, face painting
and a dress-up photo booth.
Adoption information will be
available.
Moyes and Breedon are look-
ing forward to it.
"We do have a lot of good
community support," Moyes said
- adding that support needs to
be manifested into adoption for
the 22 children in Monrok
County hoping to find lovinitl
permanent homes.
"Even the slightest interest is
welcome," she said.
Darlene Olden suggestedcthat
current and potential foster and
adoptive families "don't give up.
A lot of the kids you get in foster
care just need love. These kids
need nurturing."

Soccer team
beats Key West
3rd straight time
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Just before Tuesday's season-
opening girls soccer game,
between Key West and Coral
Shores, Conch coach Scott Paul
thought back to last season's two
losses to the Hurricanes.
"As far as I'm concerned,
they're the county champions
until we knock them off," he
said, looking out toward his
counterpart, Arthur Paterson, a
48-year-old Grenada native who
was preparing for his debut as
Hurricanes coach by kicking
balls to keeper Jennifer Tiziani.
A crowd had gathered at the
Key West High field, with fans
sitting on the track or in a little
grandstand. Public-address
announcer Judd Wise annourrced


the lineups from a table, and
then, into the same microphone,
Conchs' goalie coach Bobby
Saunders sang the national
anthem.
"Play 'soccer the way it's
meant to be played," Paul,
coaching in his classroom dress
slacks and loafers, said to his
team, and the game began.
Early scoring attempts were
unsuccessful. Key West keeper
Liz Patrocky made a nice save
on a hard shot by freshman
Jasmine Paterson, Arthur's
daughter. Then, the Conchs'
Rachel Rivet missed.
"Just wide," shouted Judd
Wise.
Paterson got loose again and
when Patrocky came out and
tripped her, a penalty shot was
awarded. Julia Hatfield took it,
but the ball slammed against the
crossbar.

us a lot last year, too," coach
Dennis Doll said of the girls'
10-6-1 record a year ago.
Marathon won just two
games in 2006, which prompt-
ed Doll..to 'often call the.
Dolphins a Cinderella team
during the 2007 campaign.
They reached the District 16
2A championship game before
losing to Palmer Trinity.
Marathon is now 2-0 with
Wednesday's win and a
Monday .victory over a weak
Miami Christian School team.
Doll said he was pleased
with Wednesday's victory, but
that the team is still getting
into game shape.
"It was a good game. They
were a good team, very physi-
cal," Doll said. "We have to
learn to play that way. We usu-
ally don't and we have to
because that's the way most
teams-playj."
The game was back and
forth throughout most of the
first half. Marathon had sever-
al chances to score, including a
near miss of a header by soph-
omore Kelley Struyf on a cor-
ner kick and a shot blocked in
close off the foot of eighth-
grader Jasmine DeLaCruz.
The Cyclones spent most of
the last 10 minutes of the first
half controlling the ball in
Dolphin territory, but never
threatened to score. The game
was scoreless at the half.
DeLaCruz broke the ice at
the 27:42 mark with a tremen-
dous individual effort. She
dribbled the ball down the right


side of the field with a defend-
er on her hip, cut left around
the 18 yard line and fired a
left-footed shot past the goalie
to give Marathon a 1-0 lead.
Farello's handball came
around the 24-minute mark and
the ensuing penalty kick tied
the game.
Down a-player, Marina Kay
Wiatt gave the Dolphins the
lead at the 16:01 mark. Wiatt
deflected a DeLaCruz shot in
close, which went off the post
and rebounded right back to
her. Wiatt kicked it in for the 2-
1 lead.
"We were basically just try-
ing to keep the tie and that put
us ahead," Doll said. The girls
were playing in a defensive
alignment to keep the Cyclones
at bay.
Barely a minute later, Katie
Landry scored on an indirect
kick from around 20 yards out.
The eighth-grader kicked the
ball into a wall of Cyclone
defenders and it skimmed off
one of their heads into the back
of the net.
Led by Struyf, the
Dolphins' defense kept
Carrollton away from goalie
Julietta Pezzella.
"She is so ball conscious
that she controls the whole
backfield and it makes it easier
on Julietta. It's nice to have
that," Doll said of Struyf.

Lady Canes face challenges on soccer field


Young team
loses nine
to graduation
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The ingredients a new head
coach leading a young roster -
seem to spell trouble ahead in the
Coral Shores girls soccer season.
But the talented Lady
Hurricanes are intent on dishing
out trouble, not suffering from it.
Key West High School found
that out Tuesday, falling 3-0 to
Coral Shores in the season open-
er.
Freshman forward Jasmine
Paterson, a nationally recognized
player, made her varsity debut
with three goals.
The Hurricane defense, with
veteran Jennifer Tiziani moving
into the net, rang up the shutout.
"We could be good, if the girls
want to work at it," said Arthur
Paterson, stepping into the head
coaching post.
The Lady Cane soccer pro-


gram is one of the most success-
ful sports at Coral Shores, with
records of 11-5 and 15-5 over the
past two seasons under coach
Clint Arsenault.
Nine seniors graduated off last
year's team that reached the state
Class 3A Sweet 16, including
some of the best soccer players in
Lady Cane history. Yet this group
could be better and it could
start soon.
"We're loaded with sopho-
mores," Paterson said, "but our
young kids can play."
Several of Canes' have won
two age-group championships at
the American Youth Soccer
Organization's National Games,
most recently this summer in
Hawaii, where Paterson was head
coach.
"Most of our girls are very
good technically," said Paterson,
who worked with the JV last sea-
son. "Our skill with the ball prob-
ably is our biggest strength. We
have some speed up top."
The opener at Key West
served notice that nothing will
come easy. "We knew it would be

the crossbar.
Just before the half, Coral
Shores took a 1-0 lead when,
from the right sideline, the left-
footed Paterson lofted a free
kick that curved over Key West
defenders and, 35 yards later,
nestled into the left comer of.
the net.
At intermission, as Paul and
the Conchs trudged to the far
side of the field for a talk, the
Hurricanes did push-ups a
punishment for talking when
Arthur Paterson, a disciplinari-
an in a green shirt and black
sweatpants, had told them not
to.
Key West began the second
half with a rush, but a shot by
Krizzie Menez sailed over the
net and one by Jasmine Jones
was wide. The Conchs played a
physical style, moving Arthur
Paterson to say, "They're just
trying to run into players."
His daughter, though, was
too elusive. She dribbled 40
yards down the left sideline and


scored easily by deftly tapping
the ball past Patrocky to make
it 2-0. "It's two-nothing, get up
the field," Paul implored, but
Paterson, looming at age 14 as
a woman among girls, soon
scored her third goal.
In the last slant of sun, with
the players casting shadows on
the "Go Conchs" sign on the far
fence, Arthur Paterson com-
plained about the officiating -
"Ref, that's a two-hand push,
what in the world is. this?" -
while Judd Wise urged the fans
to buy cheeseburgers from a
tiny concession stand dubbed
Carla's Kitchen.
After the game finally
ended, 3-0, a perplexed Paul
said, "We were outplayed in
every facet. Not quite embar-
rassing but pretty darned
close."
On the Coral Shores' side,
the Hurricanes, now barefooted
and still county champions,
gathered in the dusk to hear
their coach say, "I want to
thank you. This is the first step
in our era."


a very physical game and it was,
almost too much so," Paterson
said. "But we prevailed and got
the win."
Paterson spent this week
drilling the. Canes on taking
advantage of- scoring chances.
"We had a lot of good opportuni-
ties [at Key West] but didn't
make the play. We can do a lot
better."
Until the Lady Canes get their
legs under them, he wants them
