Nursing home
likely to close
in December
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Following a round of damn-
ing surveys conducted by the
Florida Agency for Health Care
Administration and the federal
Department of Health and
Human Services, it looks like the
Key West Convalescent Center,
home to 80 dependent patients,
may be closing.
The findings include allega-
tions'of,abuse and mismanage-
ment that resulted in Medicare
and Medicaid pulling funding
for the College Road facility
effective Dec. 11.
"It's shocking," facility
administrator Mark Hunter said.
The investigative team con-
sisted of surveyors from
Tallahassee, Miami and Fort
Myers. Hunter said a routine
inspection team has four or five
people;-this one had nine.
"It sure felt like they were
down here to shut us down,"
Hunter said. "They were pretty
much on an agenda."
One incident of so-called


abuse stems from an Oct. 29
interview between surveying
teams and a 39-year-old HIV
patient. The patient told survey-
ors he had been hurt by two
nursing assistants while being
washed. AHCA representatives
said that constituted abuse and,
was improperly documented.
The report reads: "This system
failure jeopardized all the resi-
dents in the facility."
Hunter tells a different story.
He describes the patient in ques-
tion as having several large,
open sores on his body and
being covered in fecal matter
from his knees to shoulders.
"You've got to keep them
[residents]. clean. That's a fine
line between abuse and neglect. 1
know in my heart they [nursing
staff] wouldn't do anything
harmful."
The patient in question is pro-
vided morphine twice daily and
a dose of Lortab as needed, both
strong painkillers.
Another circumstance of
abuse contained in the AHCA
report involves a diabetic patient
with left-side paralysis who was
observed propelling himself
backward down the hall in his
wheelchair. Surveyors quote a


facility employee saying to the
-patient: "You need to turn
around and go forward before
you hit somebody; there is no
argument about this." This was
recorded by the AHCA as abuse.
Hunter mentioned this part of
the report and explained that the
patient in question is a very large
man who has come close to hit-
ting other residents on several
occasions. Although he has been
provided with a mirror, to cheek
behind him; the problem per-
sists.
"We've got 80 frail residents
here," said Hunter.
Unless something changes
between now and Dec. 11, 80
residents will have to find a new
place to live and receive care.
The nearest convalescent
center is on Plantation Key. But
that facility only has about 20
beds available.
"The only hope that we have
right now is to hand this building
to another operator," Hunter told
the Keynoter.
As far as moving his resi-
dents, who are mainly Conchs,
"It's impossible," Hunter said.
"A lot of these residents would
die. There's been tears shed here.
in the last few days. To get a
Conch off of Key West is almost
impossible."

delays and omissions on con-
tracts, price guarantees and
paperwork required to document
change orders, cited Morganti in
a critical audit.
At last month's County
Commission meeting, Morganti
came in for more heavy criticism
because of cost overruns, work
stoppages and safety violations.
In April, Carlos Umberto
Fuentes Seanz, 39, died and 42-'
year-old Keith White was injured
when temporary scaffolding put
in place to contain newly poured
concrete gave way. Both worked
for Apex Construction, one of
several subcontractors whose
work was overseen by Morganti.
Horton was removed from
oversight responsibilities on the
airport job last year by then-
County Administrator Tom Willi,
who put Koppel in charge.
Friday, Horton said he plans to
hire a local engineering firm to
oversee daily work done by all
contractors there. It's unclear
what role if any Morganti will
have moving forward until
Gastesi reports to the County
Commission.
As to Morganti's future,
Gastesi said: "We're going to
make an announcement on that
on Wednesday. We're still work-
ing with them and we haven't
made a decision on whether to
keep them or not.

Another diver dies


'Keynoter Staff

A visiting scuba diver Friday
died after surfacing from a dive
near the Thunderbolt shipwreck
off Marathon.
James W. Hammock, 57, of
Chuluota in Seminole County
was pronounced dead after being
rushed to Fishermen's Hospital.
SHe is the eighth person to die
during or immediately after
scuba dives in Keys water so far
this year. Three of the deaths
have occurred in the past two
weeks, although there. is no con-
nection linking the incidents.
According to the Monroe
County .Sheriff's Office,
Hammock was diving from a pri-
vate boat with his 28-year-old son,
also named James, in about 60 to
80 feet of water Friday morning.
The son told Detective Natalie


Mashbur "that his father signaled
that he was running out of air."
"They made it to the surface
but once there, his father indicat-
ed he was in distress," agency
spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.
A friend on the boat cut the
anchor line and picked them up.
They raced toward shore, per-
forming cardiopulmonary resus-
citation, while calling for the
U.S. Coast Guard.
A Coast Guard boat from
Marathon met them on the \\ i in,
and Guardsmen took o er CPR.
Paramedics met-them at the
Capt. Hook's Marina dock. An
autopsy on the senior Hammocks
will be done by the Monroe
County Medical Examiner's
Office to determine the-cause of
his death.


"We're looking at the sched-
ule they gave us with a fine-tooth
comb."
He went on to say that if the
commission decides to keep
Morganti as construction manag-
er, "They will be overseen daily. I
mean daily, daily briefings -on
progress."
The airport terminal and adja-
cent parking garage were sup-
posed to be completed in June
2007. That schedule slipped to
September, then no one could or
would set a completion date.
"We should have fired them
right then and there,"
Commissioner George Neugent
said, referring to a December
2007 commission meeting where
Willi presented Morganti's
request to increase the guaran-
teed price from $25 million to
$31.6 million.
On Friday, Gastesi said,
Horton is a seasoned airport
administrator with 20 years of
experience managing airport
projects for Monroe County. He
has a reputation for completing
complicated airport projects, on
time and on budget."
Gastesi added he was hoping
Horton could get the project fin-
ished quickly and save the-coun-
ty another $100,000.
"Even though the project is
seriously behind schedule; ade-
quate funds remain to bring -an
independent firm in to help us
bring'the'project back on track,"
Horton said.

acquire waterfront properties. It's
possible for one project to receive
the full amount in a given year.
The Monroe County
Commission votes Wednesday
on whether to apply for the grant,
but all seem to be in favor of
acquiring the property. The appli-
cation for the grant is due by Nov.
25.
"It is crucial that we protect
public access to the waterfront
and protect our trap fishermen,
who because of high property
values, were being pushed out of
the specter of operation,"
Commissioner George Neugent
said.
"We would be derelict if that
grant passed us by and we didn't
apply for it," Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy said.
Newly elected Commissioner
Kim Wigington said the key is to
acquire the land without spend-
ing county money.
"It would have to," she said.
"We don't have any money."
According to the county, prop-


erty owner WSG Sand Lake L.P.
will consider a sale of $11 million
to $12 million. Area fishermen'
have expressed interest in pur-
chasing long-term: leasehold
agreements to help offset the
cost. -
The grant is administered
through the Department of
Community Affairs, which will
evaluate and rank applicants. A
call to DCA inquiring how many
applications have been submitted
was not returned Friday.
According to county docu-
ments, the parcel is located at
6001 Peninsular Ave. on Stock
Island and is zoned mixed-use
commercial. It has room for 75
boats and 100,000 traps.
If purchased, staff suggests
creating a "facility management
advisory committee" made up of

With hurting economy,

keep spending locally

"Worst monthly drop on record."
The headlines Friday reporting on October's U.S. retail sales
brought a chill to the air. And we're not talking about the lat-
est cold front moving down the Florida peninsula.
Here in the Keys, where we count on a robust tourist season
to carry many businesses through the lean times, we are espe-
cially vulnerable.
And if you're one of those Keys residents who plans shop-
ping trips to the mainland each year around the holidays,
please think twice about that.
When you spend your money on the mainland, you do noth-
ing to help the local economy here where you live.
Most experts talk about the multiplier effect: A dollar spent
in the local community generates another five or six as money
circulates among local businesses and funds local payrolls.
Given that most families are cutting back on Christmas
spending this year, why not explore alternatives right here at
home?
You will find lots of unique shops throughout the Keys that
cater to locals and not just tourists. And remember, the money
you spend here stays here.
Don't forget the many kinds of services you can target for a
gift card, including spa treatments, a kayak rental, Jet Ski or
fishing charter. Gift cards from restaurants or your favorite
wine shop are always welcome. Our grocery stores chain
and family owned also offer gift cards and their payrolls
represent the largest private employment base here in the
Keys.
Think creatively about other gift ideas. What about yoga
instruction, dance class, golf lesson, a fishing excursion or a
personal trainer as other options?
Chamber executives throughout the Keys do what they can
to motivate member businesses to offer "locals" discounts and
special promotions to keep as much spending here as possible.
Every charity and nonprofit in the Keys is also hurting now
- a direct result of the economy and belt tightening by their
largest donors. You can adopt a cause and give a donation in
lieu of gift giving.
And donating your time to assist those in need is a wonder-
ful way to give something even more valued than money. And
you'll find the reward you get from being a volunteer and
helping improve someone's life is the best gift you'll give -
or get this holiday season.
But it starts with you. Make this the year you give at home
because this time it counts more than ever.

Habitat for Humanity is about homes, not houses


EDITOR:
On Nov. 8, Glen Owens' letter concerning
workforce/affordable homes on Big Coppitt Key
inadvertently mixed the two new neighborhoods
he referenced.
The Big Coppitt location between Jade and
Aquamarine was approved and permitted for 18
homes earlier this year. It is in compliance with
existing zoning, density and height requirements.
Variances were granted for setbacks to optimize
open space and to provide off-street parking for
those visiting the neighborhood.
SApprovals were required and granted by mul-
tiple agencies including the Florida Department
of Transportation. Additionally, a public hearing
was requested by Habitat for Humanity to-
include public comment at.the Planning
Commission. Construction of these homes is
'under way.
The second Big Coppitt neighborhood plan,
between Sapphire and Emerald, was resubmitted
to the Planning Department in October. It had
been reviewed earlier but due to errors in the
.noticing, it was resubmitted to ensure clarity of
content and opportunity for public comment..
The 12 homes would be in compliance with
existing zoning, density and height requirements,
and have been reviewed by the required agencies.
We are seeking variances in the setbacks to provide


off-street parking for neighborhood visitors and
increased open space, enhancing the homes for
their owners and the greater neighborhood. The
requested public hearing is expected on Dec. 2.
Not just here in Monroe County but seemingly
nationwide is a sentiment that the large number
of homes for sale in our current real estate market
equals affordability for the families that make
communities work. This is not the case and our
community's chronic housing problems are large-
ly unchanged from the boom years.
Frustrated sellers have temporarily increased
the number of rentals, but this will quickly disap-
pear as the real estate market recovers from the
slump. Reduced housing prices have been offset
by the soft economy leading to decreases in home
ownership. All of us need and will benefit from
an increase in affordable workforce housing for
both ownership and rental homes.
Habitat's work is about more than houses; it is
about homes, homes and the working families that
are essential to our daily lives in Monroe County.
We hope that all concerned will take the time to
work with us. I can be reached at 872-4456 or by
e-mail at execdirector@habitatlowerkeys.org.

Embrace Marathop for what it is


EDITOR:
I am responding to the writer who says
there is nothing to do in Marathon if you don't
like to fish or dive.
In a letter to the editor after that, a writer
did mention many' of the additional things to
do in this area, and there are many that were
still not mentioned, like the Marathon
Community Theatre, the movies, the boat
rides, etc.
Marathon is a relatively small city in the
center of the Florida Keys. This area is noted
for and desired because of a more laid-back

Foundation helps,
student success
EDITOR:
I am the early childhood special education
teacher at Stanley Switlik Elementary School
and I would like to take this opportunity to
thank the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation.for its donation to benefit a partic-
ular student in our class.
Because of the generous hearts of the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate agents,
affiliates and business partners, there were
these funds available to be used for those that
need it in our community. With the donation,
we were able to purchase supplies for the
classroom for the student, and the entire class
will be able to take a field-trip.
A special thank you goes to the board of the
foundation for granting this award.

type of life than that on the mainland and in
larger municipalities. Its charm and desirability
is being one of the best spots, not only in the
United States but in the world, for fishing and
diving. If that's what we are famous for, and
you don't like it or want much more, then why
did you come .here in the first place? It's like a
diner going into a seafood restaurant and com-
plaining they don't have good pizza.
Simply, if you want more or something dif-
.ferent than what Marathon is noted for, like
Miami, New York, Boston or anywhere else
for that matter, well, just go there and don't be
so critical of this area. I think then we will all
be better off.

We at the Literacy Volunteers of
America-Monroe County would like
to thank our good friends Christi
Allen and the Upper Keys Rotary, our
guest readers, volunteers, the wonder-
ful staff at the Key Largo library and
Cover to Cover bookstore, and every-
one who participated in our inaugural
read-a-thon that took place Oct. 18 at
the library and Cover to Cover in
Tavernier.
It was gratifying to see such great
participation in this event. At our read-
a-thon, different people in our commu-
nity.took the time to come and take


turns reading from their favorite books
and poems. It was great fun, and a uni-
fying community experience.
Thank you all finally for the $500

Re-election shows bar is being raised


EDITOR:
I wanted to take this opportunity to
thank my family, friends, supporters
and those that voted for me for their
tremendous support. There are so
many people that did so much that I
cannot thank them in the space allot-
ted for such a letter, but please know
if you held a sign, made a call, talked
to a friend, planned a party, donated
money, etc., I thank you from the bot-
tom of my heart.
The help will allow me to serve the
students, staff, and community as your
superintendent of schools for another
four years. I thank my wife Monique,
sons Wade and Cole, and daughter
Miranda for their patience and under-
standing throughout this election.
Finally, if you see any of my campaign
signs around please call me at 797-
0766, and I will have them picked up.
Now I look forward to serving our


county arid working for the continued
improvement of our schools. Our stu-
dents will begin to graduate with
more than a diploma over the next
four years. If they are on a college
track, they will earn college credits
through increased dual enrollment and
advanced placement opportunities.
If they do not plan to go to college,
they will gain experience in a job that
meets a local industry need or receive
an industry certification in a high-
skill, high-wage job, making them
more valuable to the community and
their employer. This type of prepara-
tion begins at the elementary level,
through middle school and ultimately
high school, so the bar will be raised
at each level to support the next.

Peryam has challenges ahead


EDITOR:
I want to congratulate my friend
and opponent, Sheriff-elect Bob
Peryam. He ran a very long, hard
clean campaign. Throughout the cam-
paign, I found Bob to be a friendly,
outgoing person open to discussion.
While many candidates developed
or established contentious relationships
with their opponents, Bob and I were
openly friendly and privately shared
the humor and stress of the campaign
trail. This often led to engaging in
impromptu town-hall discussions with
voters concerning our views, both in
difference and in agreement.
I want to thank everyone who sup-
ported my campaign for the past seven
months and thank them for their hard
work and dedication to making a dif-
ference. Despite our narrow defeat, we
clearly made a difference, a difference
the sheriff-elect, as a servant of the cit-
izens, must recognize and act upon.
Sheriff-elect Peryam's victory,
while an electoral success, also


reflects the public's dissatisfaction
with current condition of the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office and its spend-
ing. The 48 percent vote for the sher-
iff elect is not a mandate, and when
making the difficult decisions to come
he must keep in mind that 52 percent
of the public voted for change.
This 52 percent vote is not a strike
against the outgoing sheriff's legacy,
but rather a vote for change in stan-
dards of professionalism and spend-
ing. It marks the desire of the citi-
zens' expectation for law enforcement
that is in step with the nation physi-
cally, morally and financially.
The next four years will be diffi-
cult for everyone at all levels of the
government. The public will be more
vocal in the future and more watchful
of spending, and demand that the
standards of professionalism are met.
To Sheriff-elect Bob Peryam I say
good luck and God bless.

This shows the construction stage on Oct. 21. Contractor Overhold Construction is
building the co-op's new complex. U.S. 1 can be seen on the bottom right.

Co-op building is the new blob on the block


EDITOR:
Over the past months I have watched the
Florida Keys Electric Cooperative slowly
devour the water company just down the
road. What was once a beautiful little build-
ing is being engulfed like the blob of the
1958 sci-fi movie.
By the size, one can only assume that the
new co-op building in Taverneier is being
built to service New York City to Key West.
No wonder our bills are skyrocketing. But of
course, the stock answer will be that build-
ing costs have nothing to do with our bills.
I don't recall getting any mail from our
co-op outlining the need, costs and details
or a ballot to vote on the Taj Mahal of elec-
tric company buildings. It is cooperative


ownership right? The co-op does owe us an
explanation.
I do get a lovely magazine with a section
about the co-op in the front. Hmm, is it an
electric company or a publishing company?
I'd rather have a lower bill. I suppose the
fancy magazine is supposed to ease the pain
of our electric bills. Perhaps like the movie,
we need to freeze the co-op before it totally
devours the water company.
The Florida Keys Electric Cooperative
has stolen all the character from the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority building. I say we
should give three cheers to our water com-
pany for being reasonable and responsible.

Newspaper. endorsements provide useful info


EDITOR:
I disagree with Alice Victory, the Big
Pine Key resident whose Nov. 12 letter to
the editor lambasted the media for making
endorsements in political races. I feel it is
the obligation of the media to provide such
endorsements.
Why? Newspapers are closer to politics
than any of us. They cover government
meetings, they analyze budgets, they talk
with incumbents and candidates, and they
spend the time digging and researching that
ordinary citizens do not have time or incli-
nation to do. In a perfect world, that infor-
mation is presented in a fair and balanced
manner in the news sections of the paper.
There is a distinct difference between
reporting the news and giving an opinion, in
this case, endorsements. A responsible news-
paper, managed and staffed by professionals,
will indicate the difference between the two.,
For example, Ms. Victory's letter appeared
on a page clearly marked "Keys Opinion."
Most newspapers "recommend" candi-
dates or ballot initiatives; they don't "tell"
people how to vote (as if that would work
in this country). They do, in fact, provide


facts about political races, and I appreciate
the additional insight they give in their edi-
torial endorsements. It gives me a more
well-rounded view, another perspective to
consider.
I may not agree with the endorsements,
but that is my right and privilege just as
it is the right and privilege of newspaper
editors and publishers to make those
endorsements.
It is also the obligation of the editorial
writers to make a clear and convincing case
for their recommendations, using the facts
they have gathered and their experience with
the candidates and issues. If you are not con-
vinced by their arguments, ignore them.
The bottom line for me: I am grateful to
live in a nation where newspapers can,
without fear or favor, make recommenda-
tions on political candidates and issues, and
where Ms. Victory and I can agree to dis-
agree on the same.

Sanctuary panel
focuses on plan
all day Tuesday
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Everglades restoration made
headlines again this week
when Gov. Charlie Crist
revealed changes in the
planned U.S. Sugar buyout.
The current status of
Everglades work and the
expected results in Florida Bay
and the Keys will be out-
lined by leading authorities on
the overall Everglades plan at a
Tuesday meeting in Key Largo.
"Awareness of Everglades
restoration in the Keys com-
munity seems to have been
falling by the wayside because
of everything else that's been
going on in the last few
months," said Bruce Popham,
chairman of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council.
"This is an effort to bring it
back to everyone's attention,"
he said. "It is critically impor-
tant to the Keys."
The sanctuary council hosts
the daylong session from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the
Tavernier Elks Lodge, mile
marker 92.6.
The event is open to the
public but seating may be lim-
ited.
The aim of the workshop is
to inform the [Sanctuary
Advisory Council and public]
of the potential effects
Everglades restoration may
have on Florida Bay and the
Keys," said Karrie Carnes,
spokeswoman for the sanctuary.
Jerry Lorenz of the National.
Audubon Society's Research
Center in Tavernier will speak
on "the crisis state of Florida
Bay" caused by "changes in
broad-scale water flows and
management."
A morning panel provides
updates on "the essential proj-
ects that will actually have An
impact on Florida Bay and the
Keys sanctuary."
Panelists include executives
of the South Florida Water


Management District,
Everglades National Park,
South Florida Ecosystem
Restoration Task Force and-the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
An afternoon panel at 1:30
p.m. hears fishermen and other
user groups speak on the eco-
nomic importance of Florida
Bay.
At 3 p.m., Everglades
National Park staff will update
the state of the park's master
plan, which could affect fish-
ing areas in Florida Bay: Also
speaking will be Jim Trice, an
Islamorada angler who spear-
headed efforts to ensure that
waters would remaining open
to recreational boaters and
fishermen.
A public comment session is
scheduled for 4 p.m.

Sugar deal
One of the centerpieces of
the Everglades restoration -
the purchase of U.S. Sugar
holdings south of Lake
Okeechobee will be differ-
ent from the idea announced in
June, Crist said this week.
Once planned to include all
the U.S. Sugar assets, the
scope of the purchase was
reduced to exclude things such
as processing plants.
The cost was reduced from a
projected $1.75 billion to
around $1.3 billion, and also
may save* thousands of jobs
that fuel the economy of
Okeechobee-area communi-
ties.
Crist said he was pleased
with the $400 million savings
and the fact that U.S. Sugar
would continue, to operate
plants, saving jobs.
Over several years, the state
still plans acquire about
181,000 acres it to be used to
improve water flow south of
the lake. But the revised plan
may render the restoration less
sweeping than envisioned,
some conservationists said.
The Everglades Foundation,
founded by Islamorada activist
Mary Barley, supports the
revised plan and commended
Crist for "decisively moving
forward with this monumental
land acquisition.

Slaton now looks toward new job as judge


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Having survived a judicial
race that was decided by just four
votes out of nearly 33,000 cast,
Tegan Slaton is now modestly
soaking in his victory.
S"I'm humbled by the support I
received throughout the election
process," he said. "During the
next six years, I hope to convince
those that did not support me. I
will earn their trust and respect
for the next time around."
Slaton's goals for his six-year
term: "Work hard and serve the
public. I'm elated and exhausted


after the recount process. It was a
difficult effort but it was amazing
meeting people in all the neigh-
borhoods in the Keys I never
knew about."
Slaton takes the bench Jan. 6
and replaces Sandra Taylor, who
is retiring. The judgeship pays
$140,000 annually.
After several recount sessions,
the final vote totals had Slaton
defeating court administrator
Mary Vanden Brook 16,463 votes
to 16,459.
When the polls closed on
Election Day Nov. 4, the returns

had Slaton with a nine-vote lead,
16,442 to Vanden Brook's
16,433. The next day, the county
Elections Canvassing Board
reviewed absentee and provision-
ary ballots, and bumped Slaton's
lead to 15 votes, .16,463 to
16,448.
Then on Nov. 8, a full-scale
machine recount was ordered.
When the optical readers com-
pleted their job for the second
time, the results were dead-
locked. Slaton and Vanden Brook
both had with 16,441 votes.
Then the state Division of
Elections ordered a manual
recount that took place Tuesday.
The final results came just before
midnight that day.
Vanden Brook couldn't be
reached for her reaction to losing.
But during the Tuesday recount,
she said, "Everybody has taken
their job really seriously and
there's a lot of decisions to be
made."

Key West city officials have
been banking on $1.6 million
From the state to keep the
Vandenberg artificial reef project
afloat, but despite cheers from
local officials that the deal is
done, that's not yet the case.
Gov. Charlie Crist's Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development did send a letter to
Mayor Morgan McPherson Nov.
10 saying the money has been
allocated but that's far from a
check actually being written.
The letter from office Director
Dale Brill says,- "Naturally, the
award is subject to mutually
agreeable terms to be contracted
in the coming weeks."
And Crist press secretary
Sterling Ivey said, "The state, or
OTTED for that matter, has not
released funds at this point.
We've only indicated an interest
in the project."
Still, McPherson and others
take the letter to mean the money
is coming.
"This has been an incredible
effort," he said. He thanked the
Tallahassee officials "for coming
through during tough economic
times."
The city of Key West owns the
Vandenberg and has contracted
with Reefmakers, a New Jersey
company, to get the ship prepared
for scuttling six miles off Key
West.
Norfolk, Va.,-based Colonna's
Shipyard placed a $1.6 million


lien on the Vandenberg in April.
Colonna's and three other con-
tractors -. say Reefmakers hasn't
paid them for services rendered in
preparing the ship for sinking,
including such things as remov-
ing wiring and contaminants.
Because the money hasn't
been paid, a federal judge in
October ordered the ship to be
auctioned, most likely for scrap,
to pay the debt. That's scheduled
for December.
Ivey said a contract between
the state and the city to free up
the $1.6 million is standard pro-
tocol when dealing with tourism-
related allocations and is largely
a tracking mechanism.
"Because the funds would be
derived from tourism-generated
trust funds ...' the contract will
have different performance
measures the city would have to
agree to."
Trouble for the Vandenberg
started when a three-bank con-
sortium led by BB&T cut fund-
ing. The banks initially agreed to
put up $4.6 million in financing,
but cut funding at $3.2 million.
"They weren't just over budg-
et, they were significantly over
budget," said Bob Denham, the
head of corporate communica-
tions for BB&T.
The current estimate for sink-
ing the 520-foot former military
ship is $8.2 million. The original
estimate, generated in 2001 by
Jeff Dey of Resource Control
Corp., was $2.18 million.

TDC funding up for approval Wednesday


ByRYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Sluggish turnout among both
racers and tourists apparently
won't stop Superboat Inter-
national organizers from staging
its annual race in Marathon this
May.
The District III Advisory
Council to the Monroe County
Tourist Development cut funding
for the event from $75,000 last
year to just $25,000. But accord-
ing to TDC office manager Linda
Stuart, Superboat owner John
Carbonell still plans to hold the
races for the seventh straight
year.


"He accepted the conditions,
so I have no reason to believe it's
not going to happen, she said.
"We just haven't moved forward
with the contract."
At Wednesday's Monroe
County Commission meeting in
Key Largo, the commission is
expected to vote on approving
funding allocated by the TDC's
district advisory councils for 15
Keyswide events.
'Several events, including the
Superboat International races and
Fantasy Fest, don't appear on the
agenda because they are what are
called turnkey events.

"Until it's taken place; [it]
doesn't get the funding, so there
is no immediacy," Stuart said.
In July, the Marathon City
Council was less than receptive to
a letter from race organizer and
former Marathon Mayor Randy
Mearns seeking support for next
year's event.
The city has been hosting the
Offshore Grand Prix the past six
years, but several council mem-
bers feel the races aren't the draw
they once were. Forty- to 50-foot
Super V and Super Cat boats race
on a six-mile path that sees the
boats go under the old and new
Seven. Mile bridges twice.
In 2006, around 30 boats
raced. This past May, just 19 boat
teams registered and only 17
raced; two dropped out due to
.engine problems. The -year
before, it was about 20 boats.
"At this point in time
Marathon doesn't have a lot to
offer. We have a great race course
but we don't have great activi-
ties," Mearns said.
Following are events the com-
mission is expected to fund
through the TDC for the next
year:
Mercury Slam Celebrity


Fishing Tournament, $11,000.
Keys Area Interdenomina-
tional Resources Sombrero
Beach Run, $6,248.

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com


A final decision on a pending
ban on grouper fishing is not
expected before early December
- but a Key West charter cap-
tain said the chances of relief
seem bleak.
Andy Griffiths, who spoke
directly with U.S. Secretary of
Commerce Carlos Gutierrez on
a conference call earlier this
month, said a letter received
from the secretary's office this'
week ominously refers to reports
that define black grouper and red
grouper 'as "undergoing over-
fishing."
"I can't interpret this as say-
ing anything positive," Griffiths
said. "It looks like they are try-
ing to justify the science."
. Federal officials told other
people following the issue that
no final decision has been made,
and likely will not be until after
the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council meets in
early December in Wilmington,
N.C.
The South Atlantic Council
has already endorsed the four-
month closure, but has the
opportunity to review it during
the Nov. 30-Dec. 5 meeting.
The federal council voted for
the emergency closure in
Atlantic Ocean waters, covering
waters beyond the state's three-
mile territorial waters. The clo-
sure on red grouper, black
grouper and gag grouper covers
an area from Key West to North
Carolina.
Unless Gutierrez takes action
to amend or: block the decision,


the closure takes effect Jan. 1
and runs through April.
"This will have dire econom-
ic consequences for 600 charter
fishing captains and crewmen in
Monroe County, in addition to
effects 6n all the related busi-
nesses like hotels, restaurants
and tackle shops," said
Islamorada charter captain Bill
Kelly.
SPassed as an emergency
interim rule to protect the over-
fished gag grouper population
a species seldom found in
Keys waters the rule also
bans harvesting locally popular
species red and black grouper
during the four-month closure.
Federal fishery managers say
red and black can be included
because the most recent scientif-
ic information on the species
indicates they are "undergoing
overfishing."
Recreational anglers on pri-
vate boats will be able to fish
state waters within the three-
mile limit.
However, the rule will apply
to federally licensed charter-
boats even in state water.
Keys opponents of the clo-
sure say the science on red and
black grouper science is inade-
quate to justify the action that
will affect the Keys at the height
of the tourist season.
"They're using a present-day
term undergoing overfishing
- taken from a 1999 report,"
Griffiths said. "If we had been
overfishing grouper for the last
10 years, there wouldn't be any
left."

County ending buyouts


Finances can't
support program
any longer
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

In an attempt to control a "dire
financial situation," Monroe
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi is recommending eliminat-
ing the Early Retirement Buyout
Program from the county budget.
The program was actually cre-
ated two years ago to save the
county money, but Employee
Services Director Teresa Aguiar
said the budget cannot support
the program now.
"It's a good program, but right
now we don't have the reserves to
fund it. It's costing us a. lot of
money up front and it's expected
to save money long-term,"
Aguiar said.
The County Commission
approved the program in August
2007, when 10 employees
accepted early buyouts. In 2008,
21 employees took advantage of
the program.
Those 21 cost the county
,$600,000. But this year, there's no
money for buyouts, which are
aimed at reducing the county's
payroll and the benefits it pays out.
Aguiar said the second-year
spike in early retirees was likely
influenced by accompanying lay-


offs made in an effort to slash
dollars off the county budget.
"We implemented it to. see
how it went and all the cuts hap-
pened," she said.
For fiscal year 2009, the
County Commission raised taxes
7.78 percent even while cutting
such things as $600,000 from the
legal budget.
Employees have two options
under the buyout program:
Remain employed for three
months under administrative
leave with pay or accept a lump-
sum payment of 25 percent of
their annual salary.
Under the-administrativeeave,
employees receive a 5 percent
raise, remain covered by county
health benefits and are given a
one-month salary lump-sum pay-
ment at the end of three months.
Both programs also pay
employees in a lump sum for
accrued vacation and sick time.
Aguiar said the county's
Policies and Procedures Board
attempted to make the buyout
program available year-round in
an effort to reduce up-front costs.
The program is only made avail-
able during the month of June.
She said she was unsure
whether County Administrator
Roman Gastesi intends to re-
implement the program in the
future.

Teen faces laundry
list of charges

A 17-year-
old from
Summerland
Key faces a
j long list of
charges after
he allegedly
S stole a car,
.. fled from
JENISON police, then
attempted to
escape from custody once he was
arrested.
The saga Wednesday when
Deputy Manual Cuervo from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
took a report of a gray 2004
Chevy Tahoe stolen from a
Cudjoe Key house. Cuervo was
on patrol on Big Pine Key later
that day, at 5:30 p.m., when he
spotted the SUV on U.S. 1 near
Sands Road, Deputy Becky
Herrin said.
Cuervo called for backup and
followed the SUV but the driver,
later identified as Kenneth
Jenison, made numerous turns on
residential streets as he attempted
to elude the deputy.
Jenison finally ran the Tahoe
into a mailbox and fence post on
Pine Lane, jumped out and ran.
He was finally caught while
walking a short time later.
Cuervo reportedly found
cocaine and Jenison's debit card
and cell phone back in the SUV.
He was charged with grand
theft, hit and run, resisting arrest,
fleeing and eluding police, and
possession of cocaine. He also
was charged with escape.

The Key West City
Commission, struggling with
complaints about code enforce-
ment and fines, says some griev-
ance procedures may be needed.
Although no votes were taken,
the commissioners, who met to
address Code Enforcement issues
Thursday, said some changes are
needed and Mayor Morgan
McPherson suggested a media-
tion process with volunteers serv-
ing on a committee to review
grievances.
- "Our staff is stretched as best
as it can stretch," McPherson
said, calling for "volunteers. "I
think it's important we look at an
ombudsman, someone who looks
at how we treat our neighbors.
We're committed to great cus-
tomer service."
He said that would allow resi-.
dents to air grievances against


code compliance officers without.
fear of retaliation.
The subject of big fines accu-
mulating and then being reduced
through mitigation drew a lot of
attention at the workshop.
Robert Kelly, secretary of the.
Bahama Conch Community Land
Trust, said that in addition to
looking at officer conduct, the
city should examine existing
ordinances.
"Our code is in need of some
attention," he said, challenging
the city to "eliminate elements of
selectivity that are practiced. We,
want certain standards of behav-
ior."
The idea of reexamining the
code of ordinances was echoed
by several commissioners,
including Mark Rossi, who owns
the entertainment complex at 202
Duval St. containing Rick's Bar
- and knows from personal


experience the rigors of the code
compliance process.
In January 2002, Rossi was
cited for violating the portable
sign ordinance at $250 per day of
non-compliance; those fees
accrued to $251,750.
Rossi was also cited in May
2004 for constructing lattice
without building permits or the
approval of the Historic
Architectural Review Com-
mission. Those fees accrued to
$44,700.
On Dec. 3, 2004, following
Rossi's compliance, Jeff Overby,
who serves as special master in
code compliance cases, imposed
a $20,000 fine and suspended
$15,000- to be imposed if any
future violations occurred. Rossi
ended up paying $5,000.
"The whole structure of the
fines needs to be reviewed,"
Rossi said.
Commissioner Bill Verge
called for excising codes that


"may no longer be relevant. We
pass new ordinances. Those two
blue books [containing codes]
keep getting bigger," Verge said,
"but nothing ever comes out of it."
.Overby was present at the
workshop.
"There's not much I can do
about it when people don't show
up," he said. "I would prefer that
we don't fine anyone [but] we
end up getting caught in a box
and I have to issue higher fines
than may seem appropriate."
The code compliance process
starts when a complaint is
received or observed.
If compliance is not achieved,
city officials said, then an admin-
istrative hearing is set with
Overby. Once Overby either
hears from the violator or no one
shows up, a compliance date is
set, fine assessed' and a $150
administrative fee levied.
At Thursday's workshop, the
public was told that mitigation is


the sole responsibility of Overby;
he can alter fines at the behest of
the code officer, violator or on his
own.
The commission instructed
staff to view mitigation as
inevitable, but also said a clear
minimum should be established.
Commissioner Teri Johnston sug-
gested a 10 percent mitigation
cut-off. There was ho vote since
this was a workshop.
Current code violations pend-
ing mitigation from the special
magistrate include Peter
Anderson, unpermitted structure,
in a case dating to April 2005.
Currently the fines are $34,000
and the city is recommending
mitigating to $150 to cover court
fees.
Also, Niles Sales & Service
was cited in December 2006 for
trash overflowing its dumpster.
Accrued fines are $28,000 and
the city has recommended miti-
gating the amount to $500.

Derelict boats targeted


Navigation
in the harbor
is the issue
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
on Monday took the following
actions at its regular meeting:
Approved an ordinance


aimed at curtailing wet boat
storage in Boot Key Harbor,
which is defined as leaving a
vessel or other floating struc-
ture unattended within the
city-owned or -leased sub-
Smerged lands.
Staff says unattended boats
are a safety hazard to harbor
residents and the ordinance
establishes a means for them
to be removed and their own-
ers to be cited. The city man-
ages Boot Key Harbor and its
mooring field under a lease
with the state.
+ Approved an ordinance
allowing the transfer of build-
ing permit allocations from
one property to another, pro-
vided the properties have the
same owner.
Planning Director George
Garrett told the council the
ordinance is "neutral" for the
city, as the recipient property
must have as many or more
points in the permit allocation
system as the sending
property.
Approved an ordinance
establishing itself as the
Nuisance Abatement Board
for the city. The board will
address issues with prostitu-


More per r--,o't'
for 6 months!'

tion, gang activity, dealing in
stolen property and the sale of
illegal drugs.
Councilman Pete
Worthington brought the item
before the council after
receiving several complaints
from residents about prostitu-
tion and drug-related activity.
Granted permission to
Karen Bowers to sell beer and
wine at Sombrero Beach on
May 9, 2009.
Bowers is attempting to
establish a dragon boat racing
event in Marathon, much like
the Battle in the Bay she put
on in 2006 at the Truman
Waterfront in Key West. The
one-day event drew 450, par-
ticipants and raised money for
a variety of local charities:
Dragon boats are- long
wooden boats, deeply embed-
ded in China's Dragon culture.
Each boat features an ornately
carved dragonhead on the bow
and a tail on the stern.
Bowers said she hopes to
grow the event and make
Marathon a preferred destina-
tion among dragon boat enthu-
siasts.
Monday was the first regu-
lar meeting since the' election
for the newly seated City
Council.

Keynoter Staff

Some 15 or so years and
$17.3 million later, Monroe
County has a new courthouse
in Key West.
Although the Circuit Court
and County Court judges had
already moved into the
Freeman Justice Center on
Whitehead Street earlier in the
fall, the six-court complex
was unveiled to the public on
Friday.
Among its features:
.* It's 52,000 square feet.
For security, inmates are
kept separate from the public
until they enter the courtroom.
They enter the building
through securely guarded halls
into containment cells; are led
from those cells to separate
elevators, hallways and meet-
ing rooms, where they can talk
with their attorneys; and then
enter the courtroom through
separate doors from the gener-
al public, staff and judges. It's
designed to protect both
inmates and the public.
+ There are etched metal
skins on the elevator doors
designed by Key West artist
Reen Stanhouse. The building
has other public art, as well.
+ Local contractor E.G.
Braswell did the unique brick
and stone exterior.
All native, plants were
used in the landscaping.
"Long time coming," said
county Mayor Sonny McCoy.
"This is something, it had long
delays. They were tenuous
times. But in the finality, we
produced the appropriate edi-
fice to house the Monroe
County judiciary."

Shirley and Billy Freeman.
Shirley is a former county

long-serving Keys sheriff. He
also has the Cudjoe Key

Car buys skid to a halt


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Newly seated Marathon City
Council members Ginger Snead
and Dick Ramsay wasted little
time getting acclimated Monday,
questioning the city's need to
purchase $185,000 worth of new
vehicles in the next year.
The council postponed voting
on a resolution to approve the
purchases after a lengthy discus-
sion, instead directing city staff to
prepare a "matrix" detailing what
every one of the 14 city-owned
vehicles is used for.
"I don't think it's a great idea to
spend that money," Snead said.
"I'm looking at some of this equip-
ment and it doesn't seem like the
most prudent equipment to buy."
Among the vehicles budgeted
for: a John Deere side cutter used
for right-of-way maintenance and
tall vegetation cutback ($85,000),
three 2009 Saturn VUE hybrid
sport utility vehicles ($77,826)


and a Ford F-350 pickup truck
($22,284).
In the end, the council elimi-
nated two of the three Saturn
SUVs, both intended for the
Building Department,, by choos-
ing instead to accept a 2006 Ford
F-150 free of charge from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Ramsay suggested the city
continue to accept or purchase
vehicles from the Sheriff's
Office. He said the Sheriff's
Office each year has vehicles
ready to be cycled off street use
and that Marathon has the oppor-
tunity to purchase them.
"We keep patrol cars on the
road based on year, mileage and
maintenance cost. At 80,000 or
90,000 [miles] they wouldcome
off and be unmarked," Sheriff's
Office Col. Rick Ramsay told the
council. Also available are two
2005 Ford Crown Victoria cruis-
ers at $5,000 each.


Councilman Pete Worthington
said he would not support pur-
chasing the Crown Victorias
because of a commitment he
made to the city's Green Team to
reduce the city's carbon footprint.
"I don't think we can sell
those cars to someone in the pub-
lic for that kind of money, so I'm
not going to support buying
those," he said.
But Worthington said he is in
favor of purchasing the side cut-
ter because the city outsources
right-of-way maintenance-at least
once a year for $35,000.
The council also questioned
the need for a new F-350 a
heavy-duty pickup since the
city already owns one used by
Marathon Fire Rescue Logistics
Officer Jason Backhaus.
"What's the logistics officer
towing around? Himself?" Vice
Mayor Don Vasil said. "Let's let
the building official use that one
and let the logistics officer use
something else."


Army Corps OKs boat ramp


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @keynoter.com


The city of Marathon has
apparently cut through the last of
the red tape preventing repairs
from being made to its public
boat ramps in recent years.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
announced at Monday's regular
City Council meeting that a per-
mit is in hand from the Army
Corps of Engineers to start work
on the 33rd Street boat ramp.
"We got it on Monday and the
city is working through it with


our engineer. We hope to give the
commencement next week,"
Burnett said.
The city entered into an agree-
ment with Coral Marine
Construction earlier this year for
$992,901 to complete the project.
That includes installing a double
ramp, repaving the parking lot,
refurbishing the restrooms and
repairing the seawall.
"We're hoping to be done by
March or April before our sum-
mer season," Burnett said.


W


The city has been looking to
repair the ramp since it was badly
damaged during Hurricane
Wilma in 2005. But a lengthy list
of bureaucratic hang-ups with the
Army Corps and other govern-
ment entities has prevented the
city from refurbishing it and
another public ramp adjacent to
the former Quay restaurant near
mile marker 54.
The city took ownership of the
Quay ramp in August from the
state Department of Trans-
portation and recently completed
installing a new Tedder pre-
stressed ramp there. The $153,000
project took just two weeks and
was paid for with DOT and
Federal Emergency Management
Agency funds. The ramp was
reopened about six weeks ago.
But the original plan was for
the city to acquire the boat ramp in
late 2007, and to complete repairs
within 60 days of purchase.
Delays at 33rd Street and the
Quay eventually resulted in a
massive increase in locals and
tourists using the Dodge Lake
boat ramp on Aviation Boulevard
behind the Florida Keys
Marathon Airport. The ramp has
only four parking spots.
A sign is now in place at
Dodge Lake informing would-be
users of the other public, boat
ramDs in the city.

Immediately Following

A veterinarian at the Turtle
Hospital in Marathon Thursday
successfully amputated the
right-front flipper of an endan-
gered hawksbill sea turtle that
had been attacked by wild dogs
in the Virgin Islands
S"Sandy [the turtle's name]
arrived with a badly damaged
right front flipper and several
injuries to the other flippers,"
said Douglas Mader, owner of
the Marathon Veterinary
Hospital. "The right front flipper
had such serious injuries, she
was going to die from sepsis and
infection."
SMader said the turtle handled
the surgery well and added the
turtle should be able to survive
in the wild sans a flipper.
"Amputating her flipper is
serious surgery, but they [sea
turtles] can they swim fine miss-
ing one flipper," he said. "The
biggest concern we have with
Sandy is that she's got injuries to
her other flippers and if those
heal, she should do very well."
The 170-pound turtle was
attacked last month in St. Croix
as she was nesting and veterinar-
ians there chose to send it to the
Keys for further treatment.


Mader and other Turtle
Hospital officials hope to send
Sandy back to St. Croix if she
recovers.
"We ultrasounded Sandy
before the surgery and deter-
mined that she already laid her
eggs," Mader said. "If every-
:thing goes well, she should heal


from her injuries in about three
to four months."
Weighing 170 pounds, the
turtle was transported for free on
an American Airlines flight to
Miami Tuesday night and then
loaded onto the Turtle Hospital's
ambulance to make the trip to
Marathon for treatment.


Dick could be


next board chairman


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


The Monroe County School
Board is expected to select a new
chair for the coming year at its
meeting Tuesday, and current
Chairman Steve Pribramsky said
he's ready to nominate his board
ally John Dick as his successor.
However, the man who turned
down his chance to be chairman
the past year, the recently re-elect-
ed Duncan Mathewson, said he
may be up for the task this year.
"I didn't really need to have it
then and I don't really need to be
chairman this time around," said
Mathewson, who passed the chair-
manship to Pribramsky last year.
"But the more I'm thinking
about it, the more I haven't really
decided," he continued. "I might
just do that. It's certainly my time
coming up. Maybe it might be a
good time for me to be chairnnan."
The board will discuss the
chair selection during a work-
shop at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the A.
J. Henriquez Administration


Complex in Key West. The board
will actually select the chair dur-
ing the regular meeting that starts
at 5 p.m.
The role of chair is largely
ceremonial and tends to rotate
among board members who
haven't yet served in the position.
He or she is responsible for
managing the discussion during
meetings and assisting the super-
intendent in setting meeting agen-
das. The chairperson also has the
last vote, and potentially the
swing vote, on setting policies.
Pribramsky said being chair-
man made him a better board
member, and he thinks it will have
the same effect on Dick, who has
often voted alongside Pribramsky
and shared a critical eye on the
School District's budget.
"I would be glad to do it," said
Dick, who admitted the position
might prevent some of the heated
discussion and questioning he
engages in from the end of the
dais.

By MICHAEL HASKINS
Keynoter contributor

When Bill Lupfer, president of
the Florida Attractions Assoc-
iation, came to Key West on
Monday to speak at the
Doubletree Grand Key Resort,
local businesspeople took the
opportunity to vent frustration
about the actions of the media
and public officials during this
year's hurricane season.
"All I can think of is Hurricane
Fay and seeing the governor on
TV calling a state of emergency,"
said Michael Morawski of the
Ernest Hemingway Home and
Museum. "That affected our

occupancy then and today, and I
think catastrophically."
Others joined in.
"The TV media is trying to turn
every hurricane threat into a
Katrina," said Maureen LaMarra
of Theater of the Sea in
Islamorada. "That scares people
and keeps them from coming,
especially in the summer months."
Virginia Panico, executive
vice president of the Key West
Chamber of Commerce, agreed.
"The media is looking for sen-


.sationalism," she said, adding that
she thought the officials'making
the decision on evacuations have
to be "more adjustable."

West Chamber of Commerce

wake of two mandatory tourist
evacuations.
Attractions were the only ones
to report an increase 5 percent
in July during that period,
which the chamber attributes to a
few water-based companies. The'
survey, which was included in
November's Chamber Chatter
newsletter, is voluntary and
includes 50 businesses across
four sectors lodging, restau-
rants/bars, retail and attractions.
SLooking ahead to the coming
season, Lupfer said what tourism
in Florida and the Keys needs to
offer visitors is extra value and
customer service.


"After Sept. 11, hoteliers cut
rates and it took years for the
rates to come back, so that won't
happen again," Lupfer said. "But
hotels are adding services like
discount tickets to attractions and
other things to make the room
package attractive.".
He suggested the local attrac-
tions and hotels work together.
"Everyone in the room has a
sphere of influence," Lupfer told
the gathering. "To recapture the
market share of travelers, we all
have to offer excellent customer
service."
Chris Belland, founding presi-
dent of the Key West Attractions
Association, recalled the "We're
glad you're here" program in the

Michigan warms up to the Keys


Former Wreck owners keep island spice alive in the cold of winter
By KEVIN WADLOW '.. .
Senior Staff Writer "' -
kwadlow@keynoter.coin .:.


They live mostly in Michigan
now but Stephanie Cheever and
Steve Hathaway go to work in the
Keys every day.
At least, a slice of the Keys the
former owners of The Wreck and
Galley Grill on Grassy Key car-
ried with them back to their
native state.
Hathaway and Cheever last
summer opened the CoCoNuts
Grille in Tipton, Mich., on U.S.
12 heading west from Ann Arbor.
For a motif, they went with
what they know: Florida Keys
style.
"People really like the tropical
theme," Cheever said. "The
cheery, bright colors and decor
seem to make them kind of
happy, even if it's cold outside."
The menu listing island
specialties like coconut shrimp,
grouper, Jamaican jerk seasoning
and Key lime pie "is basically
the same menu we had at The
Wreck," Cheever said.
So are the cooks, William
Roberts and Brett Sullivan, for-
mer Wreck staffers who talked
Hathaway and Cheever into
going back into the restaurant
business.
"It's not what we planned but
then a little restaurant down the
road came up for sale," Cheever
said. "We bought [the former
Starling's Nest] last winter and
remodeled it. We opened in late
June."
Many of the decorations came
from the Big Pine Key flea mar-
ket.
"You know, the Keys stuff,
'90 Miles to Cuba' signs and
metal fish," Cheever said.
"People here love it. When I get
back to Marathon, I have to go to
Big Pine and load up on a lot
more."
Tunes by a certain former Key
West troubadour dominate the
music selection.
They built an outdoor tiki bar,
modified with a heater for the
southern Michigan climate, but a
heater can only stave off winter
so long. "It's cold here now,"
Cheever said this week.
The expected high on Sunday
in Tipton is 36 'degrees. On


Grassy Key, it's 72 considered
chilly for the Keys.
CoCoNuts' sign features palm
trees illuminated with LED
lights. "We can't have neon,"
Cheever said. "It freezes."
Hathaway and Cheever both
grew up in the area around
Clinton, Mich., but didn't meet
until they attended a mutual


friend's wedding in the Keys.
Cheever moved to the Middle
Keys 16 years ago while a flight
attendant for American Eagle. "I
worked out of the tiny old airport
terminal," she said.
Hathaway was on staff for
Key West's electric utility.
After taking early retirement,
they opened The Wreck, within

Group discusses
'The Senator's wife'

The Marathon Library Book
Discussion Group will meet at
the library Dec. 5 at 10 a.m. to
discuss "The Senator's Wife" by


Sue Miller.
This is how Publishers
Weekly describes it: "Meri, the
young, sexy wife of a charismat-
ic professor, occupies one wing
of a New England house with
her husband. An unexpected
pregnancy forces her to reassess
her marriage and her childhood
of neglect. Delia, her elegant
neighbor in the opposite wing, is
the long-suffering wife of a
notoriously philandering retired
senator. The couple have stayed
together for his career and still
share an occasional, deeply
intense tryst."
It goes on, "The two begin to
flit back and forth across the
-porch and into each other's
physical and psychological
spaces. A steady tension builds
to a bruising denouement."

UM health fair

$5 in the Keys
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

" Thy is it so hard to find
Sa reasonably-priced
T lunch in the Keys?
"We don't have enough Greeks,"
said, an acquaintance, referring to
the talented Greek-Americans
who run just about every diner in
the New York area.
In the Keys, it's easy to spend
more than $10 on lunch.
Goldman's, the New York-style
deli in the Overseas Market, will
charge you $9 and change for a
simple egg salad sandwich on
white bread, for example about
twice what you'd pay at most
delis in New York. And at a lot
of take-out places in.Key West,
sandwiches on the menu are all
between $7 and $9. With tax and
a drink you're up to $10. Do that
every day and you're spending
$200 a month just on lunch.
If you're too lazy (or busy) to
pack a lunch, like we are, you
might want to have at your fin-
gertips some places you can get
lunch for a lot less than $10.
L'Attitudes has searched some
unexpected corners of the Keys
and found places you can eat a

real meal for $5
anyway.


- or close to it


KEY WEST: The best deal
in Key West was found at-
Fausto's Food Palace on
Fleming Street. A full lunch here
is usually $7 (entree, side dish
and bread) but you can alter
things a bit. One day last week,
for example, you could buy just
one catfish fillet and a side of
grilled vegetables (both served
hot). The fish was breaded and
flavorful and the vegetables the
perfect accompaniment. The
bill: $5.23. Close enough.
But lunch at Fausto's is take-
out-only. If you want to sit out
on a pretty deck and relax a little
while you eat, got to Ana's
Cuban Caf on the corner of
Simonton and United streets and
order from the window. Black
beans and rice with toast is
$5.50 plus tax. Great protein for
vegetarians and normal people
too(!)
If you want to run by the
beach and sit in the sun on your
lunch break, you might stop at
the Beach Bar, the super clean
mobile vending truck that's
parked at Smather's Beach on
N. Roosevelt Blvd. on sunny
days. A very large hot dog with
fresh crispy fries and a can of
soda is $5 on the dot.

LOWER KEYS: The owners
of Bagel Island, in the Winn
Dixie plaza on Big Pine Key,
have made a concerted effort to
keep sandwich prices low. Kudos
to them. Deli sandwiches on a
bagel or bread with ham, turkey,
salami, chicken salad, etc. are
just $4.99. This includes cheese
of your choice and toppings. But
the best deal is maybe the half
sub with a can of soda and a bag
of chips for $4.95 plus tax,
served Monday through Friday.


MARATHON: For a deli-
cious well-rounded meal that
costs exactly $5 (no tax), go to
the cafeteria at Fishermen's
Hospital. Really. We're not kid-
ding. Lunch is served buffet style
here. You get a plastic tray and
roll it along, collecting your
lunch items. $5 gets you an
entr6e, a couple of side dishes,
all-you-can-eat salad bar with
crispy romaine leaves, and all the
iced-T you can drink. On
Tuesday, they were serving melt-
in-your-mouth corned beef with
cabbage and boiled red potatoes.
You can take lunch to go or eat it
in the small dining room in the
company of doctors, nurses and
staff. On the other side of U.S. 1
and just up the road, there's the
Hurricane, the nighttime hang-
out that takes food seriously. The

owners of the Hurricane just
introduced a $5 lunch menu at
the end of the summer. You can
get a wonderful snapper sand-
wich with macaroni salad, a quar-

15 lunches on the mbnu. And you
can either eat it there or carry it
out,from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven
days. Call 743-2220.

UPPER KEYS: For great
food at a low price in the Upper
Keys, L'Attitudes would point
you to Denny's Latin Cafe,
next to Starbuck's on U.S. 1. At
Deny's you'll find some of the
best Cuban food in the. Keys.
For lunch, try the medianoche,
or midnight sandwich. This is
like a Cuban sandwich roast
pork and ham with Swiss
cheese, pickles and mustard
pressed and made melty and
crispy but instead of Cuban

A tribute to Key West's Cuban cigar makers


Cottage face
to be re-created
in Gato barrio
By-SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com
Cigar making and Cuban
life in general once
revolved around the Gato
Cigar Factory in a neighborhood
in Key West called. Barrio de
Gato, bounded by Duval and
Simonton streets and Catherine'
and Amelia streets.
The marl-paved streets were
lined with small, rough pine frame
houses that were built by Gato
and served as housing for the
ever-increasing number of work-
ers. By 1900, almost 2,000 cigar
makers called Key West home.
Those times have long passed
and now the Gato building hous-
es a number of county offices.
But some residents of Key West
whose heritage is tied to the
Cuban cigar makers are taking
steps to preserve that history.
Bruce Neff and wife Patricia
Madiedo, a direct descendant of
a Gato cigar maker, have come
up with a plan to reproduce the
front and back faSade of a cigar-
maker's cottage at Gato Village
Pocket Park at 616 Louisa St.
The city's Art in Public
Places board, the Historical
Architectural Review
Commission and the Building
Department have already
approved the plan. The only
piece of the puzzle missing is
approval by the City
Commission, which is expected
to come next week.
Neff refers to cigar makers'
cottages as "the first workforce
housing in Key West."
"This part of history isn't rep-
resented, but it's a very impor-
tant part of Key West," he told
L'Attitudes.
Eduardo H. Gato left Cuba in
the early 1880s to find a better
life free of Spanish persecution.
He came to Key West and saw an
opportunity to develop a prosper-
ous industry and bolster his coun-
trymen back in Cuba who were
rebelling against European rule.
The Gato Cigar Factory
opened on Simonton Street in
1883 and by 1885 employed
more than 40 Cuban-born cigar
makers. After nine years in busi-
ness, the Gato factory had pro-
duced some 61 million cigars."


Monroe County Historian
Tom Hambright estimates that
Key West cigar makers earned
upwards of $4 per day when the
national average was less than
$2 per day. He said this figure
equates to between $50,000 and
$60,000 by current standards.
"It was skilled labor," says
Hambright. "These were the pre-
mium cigars. There was never
enough good cigar makers and
they could command better
wages."
In the early 1890s many revo-
lutionary Cuban generals and
activists, including the legendary
trench-coat-clad Jose Marti,
made trips to Key West to
muster support and finances for
the ongoing guerilla war being
fought 90 miles to the south.
"The whole village here were
Cubans and they. supplied money
to the revolution," says
Hambright.
Neff said that Gato's employ-
ees were required to donate one
day's wages per week to local
fraternal societies and that the
money was funneled back to
Cuba to fund the revolution.
"They [Key West cigar mak-
ers] were really able to finance
the revolution that overthrew
Spain. In some ways, the cigar is
directly related to Cuban free-
dom," he said.
Groundbreaking on the proj-
ect is expected early in
December. The finished product
will only be a faCade with a front
and back but without depth or,
function: The windows and
doors will not open.
The cottage is being construct-


Most of these small cottages found in Key West were built by the Gato Cigar Factory. They were
made of pine and, unpainted, were worn grey by the weather.


ed as an art installation in an
effort to bypass Key West's noto-
riously rigorous building permit
system. The rough pine walls will
be stained to capture a century of
aging as will the tin roof. Local
artist Mira Negron is donating
her services to do this work.
Other local businesses like
Strunk Ace Hardware, Page's
Paint Store and Charley Toppino
& Sons, to name a few, are pro-
viding materials and services
either at cost or for free. The
total project is estimated to cost
$9,000 and there is still a fund-
ing gap of $4,000. Interested
parties can donate into an
account at First State Bank for
the Gato Park Cigar Maker's
Cottage Exhibit.

Signs at the cottage will refer
visitors to the small museum
located in the lobby of the Gato
Building across the street from
the site.
The cottage will hopefully
serve as a reminder to residents


and visitors alike of our island's
colorful history and of a time .
when, to borrow a line from Bob
Dylan, "There was music in the
cafes at night and revolution in
the air."

Ariella Wegman was the
featured artist for the
month of October at
Island Arts Co-op Gallery in
Key West.
Wegman, a native of Israel,
came to the United States in the
early 1970s to pursue a model-
ing career in New York. In
1980, she moved to California
and studied ceramics at West
Los Angeles College. Ten years
later she found Key West and
settled here, becoming a regular
at the sunset celebration at
Mallory Square and one of the
primary members of Island Arts
Co-op Gallery.
Wegman makes jewelry by
hand using a heat process and
frequently incorporating sea
glass and gemstones. Stoneware
and ceramics were also a part of
her display until her kiln was

It's an early
turnaround
from last year
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Winning for the second con-
secutive time, the Key West
High School boys soccer team
defeated Monsignor Pace, 1-0,
Thursday afternoon in a District
16-4A game at Opa-locka.
"I am not sure if we are play-
ing really well, or just getting
really lucky," coach Jason
Clifford said after the Conchs
improved to 2-0 overall and 1-0
in the district.
Last season, the team opened
with eight straight losses.
The Conchs were led by
keeper Jeff Wright, who,
Clifford said, had "a lot of rou-
tine saves and a few spectacular
ones."
The teams were locked in a
scoreless tie until, with eight
minutes left, Cale Hartle was
fouled in the corer after driving
down the right wing. Trevoi
Gordon then took the corer
kick and got the ball to Phillip
Young, who tapped it in for the
game's only goal.
"He was awkwardly opti-
mistic," Clifford said of Young,
who, like, Hartle, was fresh

"It was a game where we got
up real early and we were able to
play everyone. It's hard on our


players who play a lot, but it's
good that we get the young kids
in," he said.
The Dolphin roster features a
number of seventh-graders who
made a noticeable impact
against the Eagles.
Audra McKinney and Abi


Connell played well in the mid-
field, Landry said, while Sarah
Dodamead scored on a penalty
kick. He said the team's presea-
son games against strong-*ey
West High School and
University School teams
exposed the girls to a more phys-
ical style of game.

Island Christian scoring
leader Kate Dupre didn't waste
any time getting started on the


new soccer season.
Dupre scored four goals
Thursday as the Lady Eagles
steamrolled Mater Lakes

"I was particularly impressed
with our defense," said Eagle
coach Sheryl Yost, taking over
the soccer program. "They
looked very strong."


Kailyn Wyatt recorded the
shutout after moving into the
goalkeeper's spot.
Moving the athletic Jennifer
Subic, one of the Eagles' most
experienced players, to sweeper

and not be afraid," he said.
"Seventh-graders going up
against juniors and seniors is
tough. This year they know what
to expect.".
Sophomore Kelley Struyf, a
defensive specialist for the
Dolphins, opened the scoring by
netting a penalty kick after a
Princeton handball inside the
18-yard box. The goal came just
over two minutes into the game.
Katie Landry scored next at
the 25:21 mark in the first half to
give the Dolphins a 2-0 lead.
The eighth-grader came up with
the ball after a scramble near
midfield and fired a shot from 30
yards out that the Princeton
keeper couldn't handle.
The Dolphins barely missed a
third gdal iust two minutes, later


after Struyf ran down a break-
away, took the ball and cleared it
to Landry. Landry took it down
the right side of the field and put
a crossing ball on the foot of
Taylor Konrath, but Princeton's
keeper made a diving save to
prevent the goal.
Marathon kept the pressure
on,, though, as senior Analis
Flores scored on a.crossing ball
from freshman Haley Heller to
make it 3-0.
Dodamead added a penalty
kick goal after another Princeton
handball to seal the victory for
the Dolphins.
* The team played without
eighth-grade standout Jasmine
DeLaCruz, who is sidelined with
a foot fracture.
The Dolphins were scheduled
to take on Miami Christian

"Our two assistant soccer
coaches, Todd Wyatt and Cindy

said. "I rely on them a lot."

At 6 p.m. Thursday, the
Eagles travel south to play
Marathon High School at the

With construction ongoing at
the new ICS gym in the Family,

Eagles play road warriors in the
early season until the field is
freed up for use.
The first home game is still
three weeks distant, when rival
Princeton Christian heads to
Islamorada on Dec. 8. However,
that also means six of the last
nine matches will be played at
home.
Island Christian competes in
a four-team with Marathon,
Princeton and Palmer.
"We have some speed and a
lot of experience, so we could be
pretty good," Yost said.

Hobie cats are the ideal boats for youth racing because they're lightweight yet easy to rig.


Young sailors
head to'Keys
for championship
The Hobie Wave Youth
National Championships returns
to the Upper Keys. Nov. 28
through 30 to Founders Park in
Islamorada.
The event should bring out a
lot of young sailors from across
the country, since the kids are out
of school for the. long
Thanksgiving weekend.
The Hobie Wave catamaran is
the ideal boat for youth sailing.
It's only 13 feet long, light-
weight, and very quick going
through the water. Yet it's a sim-
ple boat to rig and sail..And it's
easy to right if capsized.
The Youth National
Championships has two age
classes, under 14 and 14 to 18.
The races will be held on the


bayside of the islands, where
there is usually good winds and
flat water ideal sailing condi-
tions. ,
The race course will triangle
around buoys. An unlimited
number of races are scheduled,
but race officials estimate the
kids should get in around 15
races over the weekend.
The event is sponsored
by Founders Park,
Founders Park Watersports,
Catamaran Sailor Magazine
www.catsailor.com) and
www.onlinenarinestore.com.
