No 'confidence' in 4-vote loss


RECOUNT /From I

The ballots she's checking
again are stored at the
Supervisor of Elections office
on Whitehead Street in Key
West and include ballots faxed
in from overseas, rejected
absentee ballots and provision-
al ballots that were accepted or
rejected.
Following Election Day
returns, Slaton was ahead by
nine votes. Then the Elections
Canvassing Board, comprising
judges Wayne Miller and Ruth
Becker and county Tax
Collector Danise Henriquez,
reviewed provisional ballots
and bumped Slaton up to a 15-
vote lead.
Next, a machine recount-


was conducted and resulted in
a deadlock, with both candi-
dates at 16,441 votes.
Then on Nov. 11 a full
week after Election Day a
manual recount began at 8 a.m.
and ended right after 11 p.m.
The results showed Slaton as
the winner by four votes.
Vanden Brook said she is
trying to satisfy "a feeling that
[her supporters] don't have
confidence in the four-count
loss based on all the different
count numbers that came out of
this election."
Overseas ballots received
by fax come from Monroe
County who are traveling or
living abroad, or in the military
overseas. The ballots are not
accompanied by photo identifi-
cations. and are faxed due to

And the cold weather

the vote to be received after the
election.
An absentee ballot is reject-
ed if staff from the elections
office, with subsequent
approval or rejection from the
Canvassing Board, decides that
the signature on the mail-in
ballot does not match the sig-
nature on the voter registration
card.
Vanden Brook has made
arrangements to review the
Canvassing Board's decisions
about the absentee ballots my
doing her own comparison on
Thursday at 10 a.m. at the elec-
tions office in Key West.
Tuesday, Vanden Brook's
partner, Steve Waddell, was
there as an observer, as was
attorney Alan Eckstein, repre-
senting Slaton.
The last time election
results were challenged in the
Keys was in 2003, when
Heather Carruthers who
gets sworn in today as a county
commissioner sued Jose
Menendez over his victory for
the District 5 Key West City
Commission seat. Cafruthers'
lawsuit questioning the validi-.
ty of some absentee ballots.
Menendez won the election
by eight votes, receiving 510
of the 1,012 votes cast, while
Carruthers received 502. Of
those, Menendez garnered 155
votes by absentee ballot. Only
90 of Carruthers' votes, were
from absentee ballots.
- She -eventually dropped the
lawsuit.

Bad news for the old Seven Mile Bridge


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Don't expect to be fishing off
the old Seven Mile Bridge any
time soon.
So says the Florida
Department of Transportation's
Alice Bravo, who will be deliv-
ering some grim news to the
Monroe County Commission
today about a scheduled refur-
bishment of the 2.2-mile span
leading to historic Pigeon Key
offshore of Marathon.
"As of right now the project
is not funded. Our budgetary
reductions are making it difficult
to proceed," said Bravo, DOT's
District 6 director of transporta-
tion systems development.
The project was scheduled to
begin in 2007 according to
DOT's tentative five-year trans-
portation plan for Monroe
County.-
Bravo will provide the com-
mission an update on funding
issues the DOT has encountered
and what impact that has on the
project. The bulk of DOT's rev-
enue is derived from gas tax
based on a fixed number of cents
per gallon.


"In the past year and a half
we've seen a significant decline
in gas consumption that's result-
ed in a decline in our revenues.
That's impacting projects in our
work program," Bravo said.
This, combined with Monroe
County's inability to secure a
$17 million state loan to help
fund half the repairs, could mean
Pigeon Key will be without land
access for a long time.
The bridge was closed .to
vehicular traffic March 4 due to
its degradation and in mid-June
the DOT banned fishing from
what was among the most popu-
lar shoreline fishing spots in the
Keys. Its easy access to the
water is especially valuable to
those who don't have access to
boats.
Only pedestrians and bicy-
clists are allowed on the bridge,
though DOT bridge engineer
Frank Guyamier the bridge may
be closed altogether. The only
other way to visit Pigeon Key is
by way of a DOT-funded ferry
service launching from the
Knights Key Campground.
The ferry contract with

Paradise Divers Inc. of Big Pine
Key was agreed to in November
2007 and commenced a month
later. But the contract provides
the county four six-month
renewal options, the second of
which can be approved by the
commission today.
The county received a
$750,000 grant from DOT to
fund the ferry for up to three
years.


County Office of
Management and Budget
Director Tina Boan told the
Keynoter an item on
Wednesday's agenda to provide

Fires damage


3 buildings


Keynoter Staff

Two fires in Key West
Monday afternoon resulted in no
injuries but caused $95,000 in
damage to three buildings.
The first fire started right after
noon at a home at 1312 4th St., at
the intersection of Harris Avenue.
Investigators say the fire started
outside and made its way into the
attic, but have not pinned down a
cause.
The fire caused $50,000 in
damage to the-home and $15,000
in contents damage. The fire also


caused $10,000 in exterior dam-
age to the house next door at
2205 Harris Ave.
A second fire started at 5 p.m.
at the L'Habitation guesthouse at
408 Eaton St. A malfunctioning
dryer caught flames and caused
damage to the laundry room and
smoke to circulate throughout the
building. No one was injured, but
guests were move to other lodg-
ing by the owner of the building.
Damage, mostly caused by
smoke, is estimated at $20,000.

Collins slams land plan


EVERGLADES / From I

physical completion of any proj-
ect that could directly benefit
Florida Bay is 2012, said the
experts, speaking to the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council.
Even that is contingent upon
the outcome of a newly filed law-
suit over plans to improve the
Tamiami Trail highway, National
Park Service hydrologist Bob
Johnson said.
Mike Collins, an Islamorada
fishing guide who serves on the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, said much of the
Everglades restoration plan could
be rewritten since Gov. Charlie
Crist announced plans to buy
182,000 acres from U.S. Sugar.
"The [Everglades] system
Doesn't work the way it used to,"
Collins said. "It's a myth that get-
ting more land will make it work.
We've found that's not true. The
system is on life support, and
we're going to have to pump
water to storage areas."
Collins said he has "very large
concerns" about the pending U.S.
Sugar deal, specifically the cur-
rent $1.34 billion cost. The Water
Management District has been
charged with overseeing the U.S.
Sugar acquisition.
"This could leave us with no
money for projects," Collins said.
"We could wind up owning all this
sugar land and for 20 or 30 years,
there will be nothing but sugar on
it. Nothing will liave changed."
He said Everglades advocates
'"need to be skeptics on every-


thing that comes down the road,
and ask questions about every-
thing that is being done and why."
While there is agreement on
the main Everglades restoration
goals to store south-flowing
water for dispersal in a more nat-
ural design, said Tommy Strowd
of the water district staff, "it
could take a number of years" to
work out all the issues."
"It's a simple overview" of the
goal, Strowd said, "but it's not a
simple technical problem."
Panelists outlined five proj-
ects (the entire Everglades plan
includes 68 projects) expected to
help South Florida and the bay:
The "de-compartimental-
ization" of the large Water
Conservation Area No. 3, north
of the Tamiami Trail, by filling
drainage canals and removing
levees. "Now it's very much
compartimentalized, and the
water delivery is very unnatural,"
said Kimberly Taplin of the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers.
The Biscayne Bay Coastal
Wetland Project, to more natural-
ly distribute freshwater reaching
the bay, replacing a large
drainage can4l.
The _Modified Water
Deliveries project, underway-
since 1989, to move water flows
in Everglades National Park
more to the east.
The C-111 Canal projects to
restore historical flows to Florida
Bay.
"We can't do all [the projects]
at the same time" because of
money and planning issues,
Strowd cautioned. "You can't eat
an apple in one bite."

Man flees crash, is jailed


Little girl
has surgery
on her face
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A 7-year-old Key Largo girl
suffered serious injuries
Saturday night when a boat
flipped after crashing into a
Jewfish Creek channel marker.
The girl, Alexis Beckman,
was trapped underneath the
boat, a 24-foot open fisherman,
after it slammed into the mark-
er and capsized, according to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
A witness on another boat
jumped into the water and res-
cued her. The rescuer's name
was not immediately available.
The crashed boat's operator,
Key Largo resident Gregg
Glausen, 56, left the scene
immediately following the
accident,- according to the
FWC.
Glausen, a 56-year-old con-
tractor, was jailed Monday on
charges of leaving the scene of
a- boating accident causing an
injury, a felony; and reckless
operation of a vessel, a misde-
meanor.
"According to witnesses, he
got a ride from another boat,"
said Officer 'Bobby Dube,
FWC spokesman. "People at
[the Gilbert's Resort] marina
said he didn't stop to check on
the condition of his passen-
gers."
Alexis Beckman was taken
to a Miami trauma center for
surgery. Her injuries were
described as serious but she is
expected to recover. She under-
went plastic surgery to repair a
facial injury.
Also on the boat, a 1992 Sea
Ray, were the girl's mother,
Elizabeth McDonnell, '38, of
Key Largo, and McDonnell's
niece, Mary Kilmartin, 16, of
Naples.
Kilmartin reportedly suf-
fered a separated shoulder,
while McDonnell received
wounds that required stitches.
FWC accident investigator
Carlo Morato wrote in his
report that the boat was headed
south, returning ,to .the, Moon
Bay condominium on
Blackwater Sound from Barnes


Miami Herald photo by CAMMY CLARK
Alexis Beckman, 7, suffered face injuries and many bruises
after a boat she was riding in Saturday night crashed into the
marker behind her, No. 32 in Jewfish Creek Channel.


Sound, when
it struck the
marker
around 6:30
S p.m., nearly
.- an hour after
sunset.
Before the
boat -readhed
GLAUSEN the Jewfish
Creek Bridge,
the boat's port side hit the
marker, violently flipping and
throwing all aboard into the
water, according to the FWC
account. The boat was listed as
a total loss.


Glausen later called Morato
and said he would arrange to
meet with him. During the call,
Glausen said he estimated his
speed at 30 mph, Dube related.
The operator claimed to have
left the accident scene to seek
treatment for his dog, which
also was aboard the boat.
Officers are considering
charges of leaving the scene of
an accident, a third-degree
felony, Dube said.
"The investigation is look-
ing into whether alcohol could
have been a factor," Dube said.

That's the label state Rep. Ron Saunders chose for his next
Keyswide "summit."
He hasn't offered many details, but the invitation list gives
some clues to where he's headed.
In addition to inviting U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,-he's
invited a gaggle of state agencies to his Dec. 10 gathering in
Marathon.
On that list are the usual suspects, including the Department
of Community Affairs, which quite literally controls most
development that takes place or doesn't in the Keys.
But he's also asking the Department of Health to attend and
we hope the discussion includes some common-sense talk
about wastewater and alternatives that can meet the state man-
date of sewering the Keys by July 2010.
Already, some Lower Keys' property owners have been ask-
ing if neighborhood-scaled plants might be a cheaper, better
option, especially on the rural islands where laying pipes over
long distances represent a huge expense.
*The Health Department also plays a major role in what hap-
pens to commercial package plants. Commercial property
owners face being taxed twice, once to upgrade their existing
systems, and then a second time when the municipality, coun-
ty or special taxing district gets around to bringing sewage
pipes down their street.
The big public utilities are invited, since we can't envision a
future without water or power. And he's included an invite to
Florida Keys Community College as well as the School
District, so our young people and our continuing education
needs for adults can both be addressed.
The municipalities are welcome and so is the Ocean Reef
Community Association, which functions much like a city.
But any representation from the Keys business community is
conspicuously absent from the invite list. The chambers of
commerce are not on the list. Neither are the largest private
employers.
Oversight?
Maybe, but there's also a movement afoot at the three largest
chambers to not wait for government to develop solutions to
our shared economic doldrums. Saunders' idea for a summit on
the future of the Keys must include the private sector.
Efforts by chambers and private business need to partner with
similar efforts being undertaken by local governments, which
- frankly know more about the challenges than far-away
bureaucrats in Tallahassee or Washington, D.C.
One thing in the current debate about our faltering economy
is pretty clear: Government doesn't have-all the answers. And,
worse, it often doesn't even know the right questions to ask.

Monroe County dips deeper into our wal-
lets while the administrative staff receives
outrageous salaries.
Why didn't the county administrator man-
date a shorter work week for the county
administrative staff instead of raising our
taxes? I suggest a regular eight-hour work day
four days a week, Monday through Thursday.
It is widely known that many of the admin-
istrative staff leave work early on Fridays
anyway, after about 10 a.m. If you call on a
Friday asking for the head of a department,
the secretary covers for that person and says
the staff member is out in the field. I wonder
which field they are out in? In addition, I was.
told by a county employee that she was
instructed to falsify her time card to say that
she works from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily even
though this was not true.
So why not save the taxpayers of Monroe


County money by shortening the administra-
tive staff's work week to four eight hour days,
and pay them for a 32-hour work week
instead of an imaginary 40-hour one? In con-
junction with a fair and equitable salary cut
across the board, the savings would help
streamline the county's top-heavy budget
without dipping into our pockets again or dec-
imating additional community services and
nonprofits.
I am appalled by the "just us" system. It
would be appropriate for the county adminis-
trator to act in the best interest of the citizens
of Monroe County and trim the excessive
salaries of the administrative staff. It sure
seems like we are paying the county adminis-
trative staff so they can figure out more ways
to take our money. What a sad and corrupt
state of affairs.

Volunteers race forward after wind sends birds into sea


EDITOR:
A unique combination of weather elements
on a recent Saturday took its toll on numerous
migrating turkey vultures and hawks as they
soared effortlessly on thermals in the Middle
Keys.
About 1 p.m., the first of many calls came
into the Marathon Wild Bird Center reporting
dozens of dead, and still alive, turkey vultures
floating helplessly in the bay anywhere from a
few hundred yards to seven miles offshore of
Marathon. An immediate effort was launched
by Bird Center volunteers to come to their
rescue.
When the rescue efforts were called off due
to darkness, the volunteers worked late into the
night to make all rescued birds comfy and
warm. In total, we rescued 34 live turkey vul-
tures (two were euthanized due to severely bro-
ken wings and one died), three broad-winged
hawks, one cooper's hawk (died) and one rare
rough-legged hawk.
Hawks often join vultures as they are flying
on thermals. Unfortunately, the number of
dead vultures collected totaled 62. Except for
one vulture in critical condition, and the three
broad-winged hawks, which could use a little
fattening up, 31 vultures and the rough-legged
hawk were released the next morning, dry and

ready to fly.
What causes a phenomenon such as this?
Most likely it was a wind shear. A wind shear
is a sudden change in wind speed and direc-
tion, often found at higher levels in the atmos-
phere near upper-level jets. This sudden down-
ward wind direction can cause soaring birds to
lose control and crash into the land (or sea)
below. Since vultures and hawks are not water-
proof, nor do they have webbed feet, they
often drown if they can't reach land on which
to climb out before-they become hypothermic.
In the 14 years that I have been rescuing
injured wild birds, I have only come across
such an occurrence on three other occasions.
Each time it involved fewer than a dozen vul-
tures. This latest event was, for our small facil-
ity, a large production and, again, it is with my
most sincere gratitude that I thank all those
that helped to save the lives of so many inno-
cent birds.

Keys Opinion


Wednesday, November 19,2008 7


EDITOR:
We've had an election in Monroe
County that brought us two new coun-
ty commissioners and one incumbent.
From the results, it was an overwhelm-
ing vote of confidence for all of them.
-We're all looking forward to independ-
ent thinking and changes from the last
few years of rubber-stamp approval of
anything any developer asked.
But one thing that is still bothering
me and which I spoke about at the
July County Commission meeting is
that we have planning commissioners
that are all in lock step with the out-
going commissioners. Ordinance 007-
2Q06 makes it impossible to remove a
sitting planning commissioner unless
he or she commits a crime or misses
three consecutive meetings. But for:
any other reason, our county cotnmis-
sioners cannot remove planning com-
missioners. There are no term limits,
so we can have a bad planning com-
missioner for life, just like a Supreme
Court justice.
I don't know about you, but that
scares the heck out of me. Right now
we have planning commissioners that
have recently been appointed by two
of our outgoing County Commission
members. The electorate spoke loudly


about wanting them out of.office and
yet the commission that makes major
development decisions is still populat-
ed with that philosophy because they
made sure of it by passing Ordinance
007-2006.
Our elections are a time when the
majority rule gets to make a decision
that sometimes-results in new leader-
ship because they want to see a differ-
ent direction. That happened in a big
way during our local primary elections.
Our federal and state governments
have the appointed positions shift with
the elected positions and we need to
implement that in Monroe County.
The ordinance directing Planning
Commission appointments needs to
be changed so that the terms coincide
with the appointing county commis-
sioners' terms. In this way, we get the
philosophy of the elected official fil-
tering down into their appointed posi-
tions instead of harboring leftovers
from a previous administration.
I encourage anyone who agrees to
call and write your county commis-
sioner and demand that this ordinance
be rescinded and a much more fair
and balanced system be implemented.

The old Rowell's Marina sits vacant in Key Largo. Some want a special district set up
to make it into a park.

Waterfront park can be done without taxes


EDITOR:
A few concerned neighbors from Key
Largo, believing in the need for a public
waterfront park with a boat ramp, saw
an opportunity to make the dream come
true when the old Rowell's Marina at
mile marker 104 was placed on the
market.
In a meeting with County
Administrator Roman Gastesi, they
voiced this dream. Great idea he said.
But unfortunately, there are'no tax dol-
lars available to purchase this property.
However, he challenged the group to
find an alternate to tax dollars to
accomplish its dream, which he would
support.
Well, we think our group has found
that way, and with your ideas and sup-
port this public waterfront park on Key
Largo can become a reality.
Florida Law allows the citizens of
Key Largo to petition the Monroe


County Commission to create a recre-
ation district with an unpaid, volunteer
appointed board of advisors. The dis-
trict can then issue a recreation revenue
bond to be repaid with revenue earned
from fees charged for use of the park
and its facilities.
If you would like further information
or can join us in supporting this grass-
roots project, call 451-3607 or 451-
3929, or send an e-mail to ParkByThe
Bay@aol.com.
For once, you have a real opportunity
to be part of the solution. Town-hall
meetings are planned to develop this
plan more fully. Ask to be placed on our
mailing list.

Replace the village attorneys


EDITOR:
The incompetent attorneys of the vil-
lage of Islamorada have lost another
huge case [over the formula retail ordi-
nance], spending hundreds of thousands
in employee time and attorney bills,
and now we can expect a judgment for
damages, additional attorney bills and
interest.
Most Village Council candidates
campaigned on hiring'an in-house
salaried attorney to manage the legal
affairs and billing instead of a self-serv-
ing law firm more interested in moving
our tax revenues into its Miami bank
account than the future of our great
community.
I propose we review all the bills and


file claims against these attorneys for
their billing practices, which have been
in cases to exceed 10 times what is rea-
sonable. We must seek to-recover the
funds from all the bad contracts and bad
legal advice, including the flawed
Plantation Key sewer contract and
amphitheater contract that the law firm
billed us tens of thousands to write.
We need to bring ethics into our vil-
lage and support businesses and resi-
dents alike. It is time to send these
lawyers back to Miami and stop the pol-
itics, along with the practice of writing
legislation in the hope of a windfall in
billable hours.

Peebles regrets Marathon


Redevelopment
isn't happening
'anytime soon'
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

South Florida real estate
mogul R. Donahue Peebles has
declared his February 2007 pur-
chase of the former Key Colony
Bay Motel in Marathon one of his
biggest regrets.
In an interview with
Forbes.com, Peebles said he did-
n't trust his instincts when he
paid $28.3 million for the site and
closed on $83 million in con-
struction financing from Fremont
Investment & Loan, the lender
that has previously financed other
Peebles' developments in Miami,
Washington, D.C., and San
Francisco.
"We reached economically for
it because the expectation was that
there was a strong demand for
local vacation home buyers. And I
went against my instincts and that
project isn't going to go anywhere
anytime soon," Peebles told Steve
Forbes. "We overpaid for the land


and I knew it going in."
Plans called for an ultra-luxu-
ry, residential resort called
Manoir Resort Villas on five
acres with 72 furnished water-
front vacation homes, each with
private elevator and roof terrace,
priced from $1.8 million.
Peebles Corp. got a nine-year
development agreement approved
by the City Council on Sept. 29,
2007. The council even lowered
the company's affordable housing
obligation from $1.6 million to
$800,000, provided it was paid
one year from the signing of the
agreement, or when Peebles
pulled its first permit.
That one-year window has
expired, and City Manager Clyde
Burnett said attempts to contact the
company have gone unanswered.
Marathon Vice Mayor Don
Vasil said he blames the hotel!
motel ordinance passed in 2005.
The ordinance allowed hotel
rooms to be redeveloped as 1,500-
square-foot suites with three bed-
rooms and two bathrooms.
"Most-of the developments on
hold paid a lot more than the mar-
ket will bear and the typical


financial models for proceeding
on these projects with the price
they paid is going to preclude
them from doing anything on the
short term," he said.
The hotel ordinance led to
mom-and-pop motels and trailer
park owners selling out to devel-
opers and a wave of high-end
agreements being approved to
remodel them. Examples include
the Gulfstream Trailer Park,
which sat on the now-defunct
Marlin Bay Yacht Club site; Jolly
Roger Trailer Park; and .the
Knights Key Campground pur-
chased by Earthmark Companies.
"It's a very significant number
'of units that were occupied most
of the year and now most of those
people are gone," Vasil said.
Mayor Mike Cinque said the
economy is to blame, not the
developers or the city.
"I wouldn't be surprised to see
these developments go through
receiverships and whoever ends
up with the places will look for
new investors," Cinque said.
Cinque and Vasil voted
against the hotel/motel ordinance
when they were members of the
Planning Commission, but the
council passed it unanimously.

Boot Key sale seems closer


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett announced plans
Monday for a sales pitch of epic
proportion.
Burnett said he will host U.S.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and
state Rep. Ron Saunders, among
other government officials, on a
tour of Boot Key Dec. 5. The
idea is to get them on board to
purchase the 1,127.6-acre island
outright from its three owners
for preservation.
The cost could exceed $3
million.
"Since we have three willing
sellers of all the Boot Key prop-
erty and [the City] Council has
shown an interest in preserving
the island for 'the future genera-
tions, we need to pull together"
as many stakeholders as we can
for possible funding of the pur-
chase of Boot Key," Burnett


wrote in an e-mail.
News of the landowners'
willingness to sell comes as a
surprise, given Keys Radio
Group owner Joe Nascone, who
owns 9.57 acres on the island,
was apparently preparing to sue
the city if it did not repair the
failing Boot Key Bridge.
In December 2007, the state
Department of Transportation'
declared the bridge a hazard and
closed it to all traffic, even
pedestrian. Since then, the coun-
cil has made it clear in several
meetings that it doesn't intend to
spend upward of $10 million to
refurbish the bridge.
Barry Yampol owns 99 per-
cent of the private land on Boot
Key (1,006.11 acres) under
three. corporation names.
Speaking on Yampol's behalf at
an April 29 meeting, Realtor
Brian Schmitt said Yampol feels


his property is more valuable
than estimated.
In early April, the city
released an. appraisal done by
Lee H. Waronker of Waronker &
Rosen Inc. that Valued the island
at a combined $3.4 million with
bridge access and $1.47 million
without.
At the same April 29 meet-
ing, the council voted unani-
mously in favor of a plan to buy
Boot Key for $3.4 million and
turn it.into an "eco-preserve"
vith no bridge access.
Vice Mayor Don Vasil said
he hopes the Dec. 5 tour will
somehow generate funds to one
day purchase the island for
preservation. He said the combi-
nation of Boot Key, Pigeon Key,
the Dolphin Research Center,
the Turtle Hospital and Crane
Point Hammock will make
Marathon a first-class "eco-edu-
cational attraction."
"We spent that money doing


the appraisal and if the owners
are willing to accept a reason-
able price for their property, I
think looking at it as a part of
our future eco-destination seg-
ment of our economy may be
feasible," Vasil said.
Mayor Mike Cinque agreed,
saying the purchase of Boot Key
would help solve Marathon's
recent identity, crisis.

AWARENESS MONTH



AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) and
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) are caused by
killing or damaging cells of the body's immune system. HIV
progressively destroys the body's ability to fight infections
and certain cancers. Causes include unprotected sex, trans-
fer of bodily fluids, mother to baby and IV drug users.
Over one million Americans :
Live with HIV/AIDS today.
SYMPTOMS: A person might have flu-like symptoms such
as fever, swollen glands, muscle aches, diarrhea, fatigue or
rash, if, they occur at all, they're so mild they're hardly
noticeable.
TESTING: HIr testing is a key in controlling thespread of
HIV infection. For those who test positive for .IV aware-
ness can help them take steps to protect their own health
and further transmission to others. For a testing facility hear
you, call the CDC-National Aids Hotline 1-800-CDC-INFO.

The owner of the Key West
Convalescent Center is scram-
bling to find a buyer for the facil-
ity to keep its doors from closing.
But already, patients are being
moved out just in case.
Since the news came that
SMedicare and. Medicaid planned
to pull their funding for the Stock


Island facility effective Dec. 11,
10 residents have been moved to
the Plantation Key Convalescent
Center. There are only .10 more
beds available at that site, so
other residents of the Key West
center, which was housing 80
elderly and infirm patients, will
have to be moved onto the main-
land.
"Well, it's horrible," said
Mark Hunter, administrator of
the Key West Convalescent
Center. "Tears are being shed.
Family and staff are over-
whelmed. You can't imagine."

Evelr the prospect of moving
residents presents health risks.
During the mandatory evacua-
tion for Hurricane Ike, Hunter
said, many residents refused to
eat.
Kim Bassett, chief executive
officer of Fishermen's Hospital
in Marathon, said of moving
patients, "It's going to be detri-
mental to the patients. To move
them from their home, it can be
really difficult."
Rayna Wong, whose mother
.lives at the Key West
Convalescent Center, said, "Give
me a break. The only nursing
home in Key West and you're
going to take it away?"
Wong has been happy with
the care provided her mother.
Her father, who is 84, lives on
Cudjoe Key and has a hard time
driving. Wong is worried that
moving her mother will make it
impossible for her father to visit.
"It's very upsetting to me,"
Wong said. "How can you do this
to the elderly people? They
worked, their whole lives and
paid taxes. No nursing home?
Come on, that's ridiculous."
Medicare and Medicaid- said
they were cutting funding after
an inspection from the Florida
Agency for Health Care
Administration resulted in a find-
ing of patient abuse and general
mismanagement.
U.S. Rep. lleana Ros-
Lehtinen on Monday sought a
90-day extension from the
Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services to keep the
Key West Convalescent Center
open.
Midcare Inc. of Hartsville,
Tenn., owns. the center. Ros-
Lehtinen wants the three-month
delay so Midcare can have time
to sell the center and ensure a
smooth transition to a new firm
and allow it time to get into com-
pliance with federal regulations.
For now, Hunter has received
no indication that Rog-Lehtinen's
plea was effective. Patients will
continue to be relocated.
"The only hope we have right
now is to hand this building to
another operator," Hunter said.
He said Midcare is working
with several potential operators.

Two Keys state parks could close


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Two state parks in the Florida
Keys have been targeted for clo-
sure if legislators make signifi-
cant budget cuts.
Dagny Johnson Key Largo
'Hammock Botanical State Park
on North Key Largo and the
Windley Key Fossil Reef
Geological State Park in
Islamorada could be among 19
parks that lock their gates to visi-
tors under a proposed budget-
reduction plan drafted by the state
Division of Recreation and Parks.
"Nothing will be settled until
the [Florida] Legislature finalizes


the budget," said Pat Wells, man-
ager of the Key Largo hammock
and John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park.
"It's a proposal that basically
depends on how the economy
goes," Wells said. "If it happens,
it will not affect restoration. It
may impact visitation."
In preparation for the budget
talks in the 2009 legislative ses-
sion in the spring, all state agen-
cies were told to submit proposed
operating budgets reduced by 10
percent.
The Division of Recreation
and Parks reached its goal by sug-
gesting "temporarily closing pub-


lic access" to the 19 parks.
"These parks were chosen
based on low visitation numbers
and revenue compared to rela-
tively high operating budgets,"
according to a Department of
Environmental Protection state-
ment. "If closed, these parks will
remain under the supervision of a
full-time caretaker."
"We fully intend .to re-open
the 19 parks potentially facing
closure when the state's economy
improves," the statement contin-
ues. "While this was a difficult
decision, the proposal reflects our
effort to reduce expenditure while
protecting the greatest number of
staff members."
While full-time park employ-


ees would have the chance to
move to other parks, funding for
part-time and temporary posi-
tions would be eliminated.
Ten state parks are located in
Monroe County.
The best-known Keys parks
- Pennekamp, Long Key, Bahia
Honda and Fort Zachary Taylor
- are not on the draft list for
budget-related closures.
Pennekamp is among the most
popular parks in Florida, with
nearly 880,000 visitors in the most
current fiscal year. Curry
Hammock, the Keys' newest state
park, also is not on the closing list.
Other statewide parks suggest-
ed for closing (with county):
Yellow River Marsh Preserve


S(Santa Rosa), St. Marks River
(Leon), Lake Jurie-In-Winter
Scrub (Highlands), Pumpkin Hill
Creek (Nassau), Constitution
Convention Museum (Gulf),
Gorrie Museum (Franklin), Deer
Lake (Walton), Broussard Catfish
Creek (Polk), Tarkiln Bayou
(Escambia), Terra Ceia
(Manatee), Letchworth-Love
SMounds (Jefferson), Dunn's
Creek (Putnam), San Marcos de
Apalache (Wakulla), Dudley
Farm (Alachua), Kissimmee
Prairie (Okeechobee), Nature and
Heritage Center (Hamilton) and
Cedar Key Museum (Levy).
Florida has 161. state parks,
which drew nearly 21 million vis-
itors in the 2007-08 fiscal year.

Last year, he started holding
so-called sewer summits to bring
together the various Keys fac-
tions who have dogs in the hunt
when it comes to wastewater
treatment.
Now state Rep. Ron Saunders
is reaching much further out -
he's convening what he calls the
Future of the Keys Summit that
takes in any and all agencies that
have anything even remotely to
do with Monroe County.
Saunders couldn't be reached
Tuesday because he was in
Tallahassee for a House organi-
zational meeting. But likely to
be addressed at the summit is
continued state sewer funding,
the need to buy unbuildable lots
for preservation and affordable
housing, among other things.

Keys briefs

Commissioners move
out of, City Hall
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson and his fellow city
commissioners were moved last
week from their primary offices
at City Hall, 525 Angela St., into
temporary space at the ferry ter-
minal on Caroline Street due to
ongoing mold problems.
"It's definitely a temporary
Movee" city spokeswoman
Alyson Crean said. She said the
city is waiting for test results on
City Hall before moving the offi-
cials back. She called the move
"precautionary."
No city employees were
moved.
"In our particular wing, it's
just loaded with mold,"
Commissioner Bill Verge said.
Last month, the City
Commission recommended to its
architecture firm, mbi/k2m, sites
that could potentially be home to
a new city hall. They are a new
building on the site of the current
city hall, Wickers Field on
Kennedy Drive, property at
Trumbo Point and Glynn Archer
Elementary School.

Deputies
responded to a shooting on
Hibiscus Lane in Key Largo the
morning of July 6, 2007. There,
they found the body of Marie
Elena Proenza, 39, with fatal
gunshot wounds to the chest and
neck outside Prieto-Arenas'
home.
Prieto-Arenas reportedly shot
Proenza numerous times follow-
ing a loud domestic dispute: The
arrest affidavit says the victim's
mother watched her daughter get
shot to death.
After being on the run all day,
Prieto-Arenas gave up shortly
before 6 p.m. the day of the
shooting at the Plantation Key
Sheriff's Office substation.
According to the Florida
Department of Corrections,
Prieto-Arenas was sentenced
March 27, 2000, in Monroe
County to three years each fol-
'lowing felony convictions 'for
.aggravated battery. With a.deadly


weapon and aggravated assault.
He was. released from state
prison Sept. 3, 2002.
Those convictions resulted in
the charge of a felon possessing a
firearm.
Proenza's killing shocked the
community and was followed
just weeks later by another homi-
cide stemming from domestic
violence in Key Largo.
In August 2007, Andrew
Beckner, 42, reportedly killed his
girlfriend in the typically quiet,
over-55 community of Silver
Shores. He was arrested after a
six-hour standoff with deputies.
The woman he's accused of
killing was 46-year-old Georgia
Morgan.
' Deputies say the standoff
began when Beckner fired a 45-
caliber gun at police, who were
responding to Morgan's 7:30
a.m. 911 call. Officers returned
one round, and four more shots
came from the home. No officers
were injured and Beckner was
unharmed when. he surrendered.
Finally, the standoff came to
an end when Beckner walked out
of the home and was taken into
custody. When they entered the
home, police found Morgan
dead.
Beckner who had a history
of domestic violence against
Morgan -. is, charged, with sec- '
ond-degree murder

Azul Del Mar
Travel + Leisure magazine has
chosen Azul del Mar of Key
Largo for their "World's Greatest
Hotels, Restaurants & Spas"
issue, to appear on newsstands in
April.
The owners of Azul del Mar,
Karol and Dominic Marsden,
were contacted by Travel +
Leisure this month and told the
news.
"We are very excited about
this exposure as it will be great
for us as well as the keys as a des-
tination," said Karol in an e-mail
to members of the Key Largo
Chamber of Commerce.
Travel + Leisure writers found
Azul del Mar when they were
working on their "Best
Affordable Beach Destinations"
issue. Azul Del Mar was among
27 hotels worldwide featured in
that issue, which came out in
March. On March 20, the editor
was a guest on the "Today Show"
and featured Azul del Mar as one
of five affordable beach destina-
tions. The British-run magazine
out of New York called The Week
picked the story up as well.
"This exposure translated into
immediate and future bookings
for us," says Karol. "In fact, just
last week a guest pulled out the
clipping from The Week maga-
zine. She'd been carrying it
around since last March. In this
tough economic time, any posi-
tive exposure is great news as we
obviously cannot afford to adver-
Stise on a grand scale. Like ,so

Locals reach out
to those in need
for Thanksgiving
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The holiday season is all
about good food and good com-
pany with family and friends.
Many Keys residents go
without those comforts each
year, whether they be homeless,
elderly or without family near-
by. This Thanksgiving, numer-
ous groups up and down the
Keys are working hard to
ensure all our residents enjoy a
hot turkey dinner with all the
trimmings.
At the HigherLove Mission
Outreach in Marathon, manager
Dale Baker says a turkey dinner
with sweet and mashed pota-
toes, stuffing, salad and dessert
will be served up to more than
100 guests. The mission has
been doing the dinner for at
least five years, he said.
Baker said the mission
receives food donations from
Winn-Dixie and Publix, among
others, and that volunteers from
the Zonta Club of Marathon
help serve the meal. Even folks
the mission has helped in the
past bring food by, he said.
"I -set up tables up in the
front and outside.. We try to
make them as comfortable as
possible," Baker said, adding
dinner is served starting at 3
p.m. "until the food runs out."
Marjorie Roberts, executive
director of Keys Area
Interdenominational Resources
in Marathon, says the nonprofit
group, known as KAIR, will
hand out 200 Thanksgiving din-
ner baskets to families in need.
The families are chosen from a
pool that KAIR has worked
with, along with referrals from
Wesley House Family Services,
Children's Medical Services
and AIDS Help caseworkers.
"Those folks living pay-
check to paycheck could benefit
from having a nice dinner,"
Roberts said. "They'll get
everything they need to make a
nice dignified Thanksgiving
dinner in their-own home."- --

ner as' well, free of charge to
community members. Church
administrative assistant Tiffany
Katz said the dinner is planned
to begin around 2 p.ri. and run
through approximately-4.
"We are providing turkey,
stuffing, mashed potatoes and
-gravy and people can sign up
for different foods to bring. It's
going to be like a church
potluck, but we're doing it for
the community," Katz said. The
church is at mile marker 93.
The main Thanksgiving din-
ner in Key West is put on each
year by Glad Tidings
Community Church. The
church, at 1209 United St.,
gives out approximately 110
baskets and serves dinner to
300 people.
Among other events sched-
uled throughout the Keys:
+ First Baptist Church of
Islamorada is hosting a
Thanksgiving dinner scheduled
to begin at 1 p.m. The church is
at mile marker 81.2.
Island Community Church
is hosting a Thanksgiving din-
ner on Nov. 25 at Island

"They just tore us up," said the
senior quarterback, playing in his
final high school game.

that, scoring on their first offen-
sive play and building a 41-0
halftime lead before coaches
agreed on a running clock for the
final 24 minutes. Marathon broke
.off repeated big gainers, running
just 16 offensive plays in the first
half.

Wonderlin is a coach's dream.
Told by coaches Becky
Winter and Mike Lettau that a


runner should feel like they want
to drop at the end of a race, the
sophomore did just that Saturday
en route to earning a trip to the
Class 1A state championship
meet.
Wonderlin exhausted herself
by turning in a personal best
time of 22:42 on a Westminster
Academy course that Winter
said has been rated the second
most difficult in South Florida.


"She was in eighth place the "
entire time and a foot before the
finish line she dropped and three
people passed her," Winter said.
Wonderlin still managed to
finish llth overall; the top 15
individual times earned a spot in
the meet this Saturday at Little
Everglades Ranch in Dade City.
She was the girls' lone represen-
tative Saturday after placing
12th overall in the district meet.

Dolphins swarm Hurricanes


FINALE / From 21

Kenny White said the )team fell
short of its ultimate goal, but it
was nice to finish his Dolphin
career with a victory.
"We came out and played hard
and won the game. Obviously our
goals didn't come true ... mistakes
killed us," White said. The
Dolphins' 48-7 loss to Parkway:
Academy last weekend eliminat-
ed them from state Class 2B play-
- off contention.
Both coaches, the Dolphins'
Lance Martin and the Hurricanes'
Todd Gideon, praised their outgo-
ing seniors following the game.
Martin is in his seventh season
and has coached most seniors on
the roster "snice they were all lit-
tle kids."
"I'm happy for them. A few of
them will move on to college and
a few of them will have a nice
memory for the rest of their
lives," Martin said.
Gideon said not only his sen-
iors, but younger players as well,
showed a lot of heart despite a 2-
9 record and 11 players lost to
injury or disciplinary reasons.
"It's been tough this year ...
but I'm real proud of the guys that
stuck around," Gideon said,
adding it will be difficult to fill
Rini and fellow senior Ryan
Biondoletti's shoes next season.
Rini said his final game as a
Hurricane was bittersweet.
"I can accept a loss, but not
that bad," Rini said. "Marathon is
really good this year."
.The Dolphins converted an
onside kick to open the game and
followed up with a 40-yard touch-
down pass from White to
Freeman on their first offensive
play.
"We saw how they lined up in
that formation and we knew one
of the guys we were sending
down the middle of the field
would be open," Martin said.
After a Coral Shores three-
and-out, Freeman ripped of a 29-
yard run. White then ran in a
-quarterback keeper from 37 yards
out two plays later- to put the
Dolphins up 14-0 early in the first
quarter.

showed its potential last weekend
in a preseason tournament at the
Bobby Menendez Gym.
After defeating University
School of Fort Lauderdale, 57-56,
Friday night on a free throw by
Chelsea Storr with six seconds
left in overtime, the Conchs lost,
61-33, to Parkway Academy of
Miramar the defending state
3A champion on Saturday
night.
Storr, a junior, scored 20
points in the victory over
University and helped send the
Conchs into the title game against
Parkway, which had defeated
Marathon, 76-5, earlier Friday..
Before Saturday's game, Key
West coach Glenn Hayes Sr. said
the Conchs needed to make free
throws and have a minimum of
turnovers to have a chance against
the ball-hawking Panthers, a team
boasting several Division 1 col-
lege prospects.

Neither happened the
Conchs were 1 of 10 from the foul
line (5 of 26 for the tournament)
and had 28 turnovers. Key West
got off only 52 shots, while
Parkway, shooting mostly layups
and three-pointers, had 73 field-
goal attempts.
Still, the Conchs showed no
signs of being intimidated and
played hard until the end. "They
will make some noise in the
future," Parkway coach Adam
Hopkins said.
The Conchs trailed only 9-6
before Parkway closed the first
quarter with 10 consecutive
points. It was 31-16 at the half,
and from there the Panthers
steadily increased their lead.
Storr and freshman Shanyia
Watson displaying moves well
beyond her years each had
eight points. Rutgers University-
bound Erica Wheeler scored 21
for Parkway.
In Friday night's thriller, Key
West trailed, 56-51, in overtime
before rallying behind Sforr and
guard Alicia Arrazola. After
Storr's free throw made it 57-56,
the Conchs, urged on by their
screaming fans, prevented
University from making an
inbounds pass from midcourt.
Marathon finished the tourna-
ment 0-2 after losing Saturday to
University, 48-16. The Dolphins
will travel to Key West again
Thursday for a 5 p.m. regular-sea-
son opener against the Conchs,

Get to the bottom of it


The grouper
and snapper
are red hot


Boy, oh, boy is the bottom
fishing active now.
I'm talking a wide variety of
species in most every venue eat-
ing up an assortment of baits both
day and night. For more than a
week now, from my own experi-
ences as well as in talking with
many other anglers, it's been
quite good. One of the surprises
is the wide variety of fish out
there now.
The bay has been the most pro-
ductive as far as action, with huge
mackerel that seem to have moved
in, say, from 12 to 18 miles out.
And there were some spots well
out that held numerous grouper,
from blacks to gags and reds.
-On one recent day, we caught
43 grouper in three hours, several
of them legal size. Most were just
under, which is a good sign for
the future.
Therewere also spots with
,very large snapper, mostly in the
white spots surrounded by tall
grass due north of Florida Keys
Marathon Airport, about 14 miles
out. We had about our limit every
trip to the bay, with an average of
around 2.5 pounds per fish.
The mackerel were so thick in
spots that it was difficult to get
bait to the bottom for a snapper.
Most were very large which pro-
Svided a great time on light tackle.
On several trips, we did not keep a
mackerel under 30 inches. There
were that many huge ones there. It
was a mix of Spanish and Cero as
well as quite -a few ladyfish and
the ever-present hound, fish there
-to bother your surface bait.


using whole
ballyhoo on
a double rig'
with wire
that in most
cases had a
life expect-
ancy of less
than 15 sec--
SI '\ onds from
the time it
S hit the
water. Cast-
Dave Navarro ed lures and
S jigs were
also very successful. The biggest
problem was when we had more
than one fish on at a time on the
light tackle. It created a bit of a
fisherman's shuffle in the cockpit,
as the fish would weave their way
around the boat on the lines.
Some of the white spots up
toward Sprigger and Schooner
banks were holding quite a vari-
ety of snapper, from yellowtail to
mutton, as well as lane and man-
grove. We found several locations
where there were plenty of legal-
size fish. And I was rather sur-
prised to find 14- to 16-inch yel-
lowtail that far in the bay. Some
of the buttons we caught were in
excess of 20 inches. And there
were quite a few of the sand spots
that had some very nice lane
snapper upward of 14 inches.
When we worked the shallow
banks, we found lots of large
trout as well as more mangrove
snapper. We had one bank near
Sprigger where we caught about
20 trout and only six of them
were small enough to fit in the
slot limit. Here, too, the light
tackle was a blast with the surg-
ing trout. Small live pinfish as
well as live shrimp were the best
for getting a bite from them.


The bridge channels were
active, too, with a mix of snapper
and grouper. Around Moser
Channel, yellowtails continue to'
be quite active and legal-size. It's
a good bet you could limit out
right there.
We also worked Hawk
Channel on several of the humps
and bumps from off Duck Key all
the way 'down to off Bahia
Honda. Most of them were quite
good, with large lane snapper, a
few big mangrove and some very
nice muttons.
On the reef line, we found it to
be tough on those days when the
current was smoking, as well as
the days where there was little or
none. The winds also dictated just
when and where we could go. It
was hard to find a happy medium.
But by changing the depths we
had planned to fish, we were able
to put together some fine catches
there. When the current was light,
we drifted the deep edges with
live baits to find some big
grouper and mutton snapper.
Working in shallower-than-
desired waters provided adequate
conditions for a nice catch while
not working too hard at it or get-
ting disappointed.
Fishing the edge of the reef is
always quite active if you are
flexible in your plans. How to
work this region depending on
the conditions as well as tackle
and tactics will be the subject of'
this week's free fishing seminar
at our Marine Educational Center
this Sunday at 6 p.m. We're at
mile marker 49 bayside.
