On its "Road to the White
House" Tour, C-SPAN's
Campaign 2008 Bus reaches the
end of the road in the Florida


Keys this weekend.
The bus, which hosted presi-
dential aspirants during the
campaign, opens its doors at
two stops today before heading
for Tavernier on Sunday.
"We're very pleased, almost
giddy, that C-SPAN decided to
spend a couple hours with us
down here at the end of the
road," said Peter Rogers, man-
ager of Voltaire Books on Key


. West's Simonton Street.
Voltaire Books hosts a visit
from the 45-foot-long, patrioti-
cally painted bus from 2 to 4
p.m. today.
During the stop, the

It appears Monroe County
Administrator Roman Gastesi is
safe in his job.
While the County
Commission will not formally
address his contract until its
December meeting, Gastesi has
officially passed the six-month
probationary period agreed to
before his May 12 hiring.
"The first six'months of his
four-year contract, he could be
terminated without cause and
there would be no buyout," Chief
Assistant County Attorney Bob
Shillinger told the Keynoter.
Should the commission termi-
nate him prematurely, Gastesi is
now entitled to six months'
salary and the cost of three
months' health insurance premi-
ums. Effective Dec. 1, his salary
will increase $10,000 to
$165,000 annually.

SNeugent gets the nod


No surprise
as he's chosen
the new mayor
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The worst-kept secret in the
Keys went public Wednesday
when County Commissioner
George Neugent was chosen as the
next mayor of Monroe County.
"It gives me, great pleasure
today to nominate George'
Neugent," Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy beamed. The nomination
met with applause from a packed
room at the Key Largo library.
Murphy's nomination was
seconded by Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro and unani-
mously approved by the board.
Murphy was 'then unanimously
selected as vice mayor after being
nominated by Di Gennaro.
Neugent, who last served as
mayor in 2001, congratulated
new commissioners- Heather
Carruthers and Kim Wigington
and praised-their community
activity and knowledge of state
issues. Carruthers and Wigington,
along with the returning incum-
bent Murphy, were sworn in prior
to the meeting.
"You can start getting people
upset at you from now on,"
Neugent joked. "I suggest, if you
haven't, growing another layer of
skin.
"We've got some budgetary
issues due to an economic down-
turn and constraints from the leg-
islature," he continued. "We have
a tough road to hoe and I'm
absolutely convinced we'll be up
to the task."
Di Gennaro, a former mayor
himself, offered his congratula-
tions to Neugent and the new
commissioners.
"Coming ott of the box is
tough, but we're here to support
you. Let's join together and do the
right thing for the county," he said.
"I'm so excited to be with this
group. We have a terrific future in
this county and I'm humbled and
honored to be a part of if,"
Carruthers said.
Wigington, meanwhile, may
have underestimated the amount
of time she'll be putting in as a
commissioner.
"After receiving a 1,500-page
agenda I appreciate staff more
than ever," she joked. "It was
heartwarming .to see, how staff,

prepared for this day."
Wigington and Carruthers
replaced outgoing commissioners
Dixie Spehar and Sonny McCoy.
Spehar spoke briefly and
thanked residents for their sup-
port over the past eight years. She
received a standing ovation and
was emotional as McCoy pre-
sented her with a plaque com-
memorating her service.
McCoy was also emotional as
he spoke about his late wife, for-
mer Key West Commissioner
Merili McCoy. He also recounted
his accomplishments in Key West
and the. county, over theyears, .


The county mayorship is a
largely ceremonial position, but
Neugent has said he'll use the
position to whatever advantage
he can. That includes naming fel-
low commissioners to sit on com-
mittees such as the Tourist
Development Council, Monroe
County Land Authority and
South Florida Regional Planning
Council.
Neugent said he wants
Carruthers and Wigington, plus
two-year Commissioner Murphy,
to gain more experience in the
event he and Di Gennaro don't
run or areq',t re-elected ji ZQ10,.,,

Sewers funds at risk


FUNDING / From 1

years to help finance what
remains of central sewer projects
in the Keys. The overall estimated
cost is more than $500 million.
At a Saunders-called summit
in August, local government lead-
ers agreed in principle on the fol-,
lowing split of the $200 million:
Unincorporated Monroe County,
36.47 percent; Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District,
22.5 percent; Islamorada, 17.1
percent; Marathon, 11 .percent;.
Key West, 11.5 percent; Ocean
Reef, 1.33 percent;. and Key
Colony Beach, 0.1 percent.
However, they also agreed in
principle that whoever's ahead on
sewer construction would likely
get the money first.
Those would appear to be
Marathon, Key Largo and the
county.
"When this $200 million came
up and the economy went the
way it did, we all pretty much
said this isn't going to happen,"
Marathon City Manager Clyde
Burnett said.
"We've got all of our financ-
ing to finish our sewers all .the
way out," he said. "If no more
grant money comes, federal or
state, we're moving forward."


But he 'also said he hopes_that
eventually, some of that $200
million does flow south so the
city can get some reimbursement.
Marathon is full bore ahead on
sewering the Sombrero area and
the bayside of U.S. 1 south of
Sombrero Beach Road. Next on
the schedule is the Coco Plum
area, which is estimated to cost,
$25 million for the collection sys-
tem and $10 million for the treat-
ment plant.
On Friday, County Admin-
istrator Roman Gastesi said that if
no sewer money comes from
Tallahassee, "It would just take a
little air out of our sails, but we'd
still be sailing. We still need to
move ahead on the design work,
the engineering work."
If in fact state lawmakers
decide not to bond out the sewer
money, Saunders said Keys gov-
ernments should ask for an.exten-
sion of the state-mandated July
2010 deadline to have central
sewers installed. That's a reversal
of his long-standing position,
which has been to maintain the
deadline.
"If we don't get it, I think we
have an excellent argument to get
an extension," he said. "If there's
any good news; I guess we can
ensure we would get some kind
of extension."

ty has imposed a hiring freeze

istrator a $10,000 raise after he's

ting it where we agreed it would

to the lower salary during his six-
month probationary period.

republished for its 20th anniver-
sary. It will be broadcast at some
point on C-SPAN's Book TV.
The bus also will be at the
Truman Little White House from
10 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.
On its way out of the Keys,
the bus stops at Cover to Cover
Books in Tavernier Towne, mile
marker 91.2, from noon to 2 p.m.
Sunday.
"That they would come to our
little independent bookstore is
simply awesome," Cover to
Cover co-owner Jenny Bell
Thomson said."It's supposed to
be quite educational, and it helps
our store celebrate our fifth
anniversary."
On Friday, the Campaign
2008 Bus scheduled stops at the
Crowne Plaza Hotel for a Rotary
breakfast, and at Key West High
School for student tours.
"They're basically introducing
the kids to what C-SPAN is -
unbiased reporting," said Jennifer
Barrios, government teacher at
Key West High School. "They're
really just showing the kids what
the difference is between C-
SPAN, FOX and CNN."


Equipped with multi-media
demonstration centers, the bus has
stopped at nearly 250 schools and
been visited by nearly 200,000
people, including more than
61,000 students and teachers.
In addition 't& being part of C-,
SPAN's "educational mission
with a focus on middle and high
schools and first-time voters," the
bus played a major role in cover-
ing the national elections, said C-
SPAN spokeswoman Sarah
Howard Parker.
"A number of candidates have
been on board," she said. "But-no,
not the two you think of first."
Former New York City Mayor
Rudy Giuliani was interviewed in
the bus studio during the primar-
ies, along with then-candidates
Mitt Romney of Massachusetts,
Gov. Mike Huckabee of
Arkansas and Gov. Bill
Richardson of New Mexico.
And candidate wives Cindy
McCain and Elizabeth Edwards
have visited the bus during stops.
The state-of-the-art production
facilities give C-SPAN "the
opportunity to interview students,
authors, journalists and politicians
... from anywhere in the-country,"
according to information from the
cable public-service channel.

Some grat news



. Beaming faces. r-rght -miles andma c c 7 en.i a ,tears
Were the order of hie day this week as members of the 'ionroe
Cou'hl Education Foundation met \ ith-students and their par
ents at Take Stock in Children signing ceremonies.
;Seventy-one students enrolled in the inno\aii e program this
week,joining the ranks of 224 other Ke) s students whose lives.
-were changed forever.
Take Stock provides the promise of full tuition to a Florida
college or university for students who complete the program,
which has students sign contracts promising good behavior and
good grades in return for the tuition.
Jim Hall, coordinator for Take Stock in Monroe County, told
Coral Shores students, "This is a significant milestone in your
lives."
For many, it marks a threshold where working hard in school
bears tangible rewards immediately. And it's not just the pledge
of college tuition when they graduate from high school. Take
Stock students benefit right away from the involvement of adult
volunteers, who mentor every week during the academic year.
Throughout the year, Hall and his active board recruit role
models who can help make a difference in students lives.
Often, mentors are so enthused about the changes they see and
help nurture that they become the most ardent recruiters of oth-
ers to join the effort.
John Padget, former Monroe County schools superintendent
and a director of the state Take Stock in Children board, points
to the success rate of the program as the best testimonial.
Since its inception in 1995, Florida's Take Stock in Children has:
Given more than 14,000 children the opportunity to suc-
ceed in life.
Awarded more than $97 million in college scholarships.
Logged more than 970,000 volunteer hours statewide.
More than 7,000 students have graduated high school with a
Take Stock in Children scholarship since the first graduating
class of 1999.
Even folks in the nation's capitol have noticed. Here's a
report from a congressional committee on financial aid:
"By connecting with so many different types of organiza-
tions, Take Stock in Children is able to capitalize on the many
different types of resources available within the community.
Businesses and organizations should see such donations as an
opportunity to invest in students, and, ultimately, as an invest-
ment in the future of a community."
Take Stock in Children is a wonderful example of what pub-
lic-private partnerships can accomplish. Government, business-
es, the school system, social service agencies, civic and reli-
gious organizations, and private citizens working together -
truly make a difference in the lives of deserving children.

In the pait. a large percentage of out popul.,-

\ here the combined funds could be used for local
mortgages In recent \ears. there has been a
wholesale change in our spending habits that saw.
many average citizens moving from net savers to
credit card debtors. This resulted in the loss of a
highly liquid and important capital source that
previously financed the purchase of homes.
The need for housing money, of course, con-
tinues, but obtaining it at terms the market finds
attractive has become problematic due in large
part to our. significant and continuing national
deficits, both in the federal budget and our for-
eign trade balances.
As the present housing issue evolved, Wall
Street came up with a slick answer, which would
have provided the needed mortgage money by
means of a very neat twist. We could, in effect,
have our houses without having to spend pre-
cious dollars to get them. It worked like this:

A side issue of the crash has been that much
of the losses weirecarried by foreign buyers, and
thereby spreading our disease around the world.
My conclusion is that you and I and the great
mass of the American public must bear some con-
siderable responsibility for the present housing
debacle. We largely stopped saving and turned to
credit card and personal debt, letting overseas
savers, in places like Japan and China, loan to us
what we ourselves would not provide. We chose
instant gratification and are paying for it now.
It is all easy to blame the bums of Wall Street,
and they do deserve condemnation, if not jail.
But ultimately, they only gave us what we
demanded.

Lower Keys show their true color gieen


EDITOR:
On Nov. 15 at the Big Pine Academy, the
Lower Keys community supported America
Recycles Day. It was the inaugural Big Pine Key
Recycling Fair where attendees learned about the
four Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle, rot (compost)).
They learned how to reduce their waste, recycle
more thoughtfully and appreciate more about the
environmental impact of our actions. The event
was a wonderful team effort with so many peo-
ple and organizations to thank.
We could have not held this event without the
support of Cathy Hoffman and the Big Pine
Academy and the generosity of Bob Calhoun and
- the staff of Habitat for Humanity, who supplied
the tents and labor. Special thanks go to the
teachers and their students of the Big Pine
Academy who captured our imagination with the
recycled art.
Waste Management Inc. donated recycling
bins to residents who demonstrated their desire
to recycle. Publix donated reusable shopping
bags won by participants in a recycling quiz.
Coca Cola Enterprises supplied the cold drinks

DOT sees the light
EDITOR:
Oh my goodness, it has finally happened.
Stanley Switlik Elementary School finally has a
true student light.
For 20 years, we have begged and pleaded with
the state Department of Transportation to do some-
thing about that stupid small light on the side of
the road that no one can see, and we were always
given the runaround. Thanks to Mike Puto for giv-
ing them the nudge and getting the ball rolling.

Kim Gabel and her team of master gardeners

wanted to responsibly dispose of their obsolete
electronics.
Final thanks go to the many volunteers who
gave their time and effort to make this inaugural
event happen and to those who attended. They
represent a growing segment of the Lower Keys

between what we do and how it affects our envi-
ronment, and are inspired to do something posi-

Keys Opinion


Don't compare apples, oranges


EDITOR:
SAs a regular and appreciative read-
er of your newspaper, we were sur-
prised and disappointed by how you
mentioned our restaurant, Goldman's
Bagel Deli, in the Winn Dixie plaza in
Key West, in your $5 lunch article.
We don't, as you reported, charge
"$9 and change for simple egg salad
sandwich on white bread." What we
do serve is fresh egg salad on bread
and bagels that we bake right here,
and that comes with a quarter-pound
service of our homemade potato salad
or slaw, and a crunchy dill pickle. And
we charge $7.95, not."$9 and change."
Your reporter also thinks we're twice
the price of most delis in New Your
City? C'mon, check out the New York
menu pages: Roxy Deli $13.95;
Stage Deli $11.95; 2nd Avenue Deli
- $9.95. And it's just plain unfair to
compare Goldman's, as you did, to
cheaper food prices found at a Key
West supermarket, street comer take-out
window, and beach lunch truck.
Unlike those places, Goldman's
offers food served at your table, on
plates, by friendly wait staff in an air-


conditioned room, with lots of free
parking and free refills on most drinks.
And believe me, we've gotta pay for
that kind of space-in Key West, and for
labor and utilities that it requires.
Look,times are tough right now; if
you really want to show where a
diner's dollar goes the furthest, com-
pare our early breakfast special (two
eggs, any style, home fries or grits,
fresh baked bagel and all the coffee
you want for $3.95 until 9 a.m. every
day) to other places around town.
Goldman's has been a family
owned restaurant here in the Winn
Dixie plaza for over 10 years, serving
an overwhelmingly local crowd. It's
not easy competing with all the
national chain restaurants that domi-
nate this part of town, chains that
have corporate buying power and ad
budgets that we can't hope to match.
But we've been doing it for 10 years,
and we're gonna keep doing it. Please
just don't make it any harder by tak-
ing cheap shots at us in the Keynoter.

No bailouts for failures


EDITOR:
Well, now that we've got the best
government that money could buy,
we are going to see how we spend
money that we don't have. Never
mind the national debt or the trade
deficit or the credit card debt; we've
got bailouts to consider. And in doing
so, we have to figure out what all this
debt is going to cost us, since we
have to pay it.
Corporations, businesses, car com-
panies, cities the list grows every
day. The same weasels that were
guarding the economic hen houses
are still there waiting for funds to
continue the carnage. And now there
is the possibility that we will have to
bail out the idiots in California who


insist on building in areas where mud
slides and brush fires occur every
year. Nothing like the satisfaction of
rewarding those who espouse the
arrogance of ignorance, is there?
I don't understand why those of us
who make money the old-fashioned
way, earning it, have to subsidize stu-
pidity, greed and corruption. All these
whining jerks with the champagne
appetites and beer budgets are
rewarded for being a major cause of
this global recession.
There is no political solution for
debt; printing money and throwing it
at the problem just puts us deeper in
the hole.
Gene Thieman.

Now's the time for all to support the mayor


EDITOR:
We now have a new county mayor
and mayor pro tem, George Neugent
and Sylvia Murphy, respectively. I read
a lot of descriptions of the mayor's job
as being mostly ceremonial or symbol-
ic. However, it's more than the first
description, though there is ceremony
enough that goes with the position. As
for the second descriptive word, the
symbolism is important symbolism,
encompassing an important statement.
The statement is that the man or
woman chosen mayor represents a com-
missioner in whom the full or the
majority of his or her colleagues trust to
become a-spokespersoin for the Keys -


all of the Keys. And the position carries
with it very real, practical authority to
do important things, like issuing evacu-
ation orders, and, I believe, calling spe-
cial commission meetings when they
are needed, to name just a few.
The important thing for us, as with
the new president-elect, is to now put
aside any past differences, lend sup-
port and focus on common ground as
we wish our new president, County
Commission and mayor good luck
and good outcomes for our country,
our county and for all of us who live
in and visit the Keys.

School District has


the will for greatness


The Monroe County School District is
poised for greatness.
Recently on the radio the former
School Board chairman said we had a
great board along with a capable and
successful superintendent. The voters
obviously have confidence in our super-
intendent. We have community support.
We have involved parents. We are fund-
ed better than most. We have outstand-
ing talent and we are in the catbird seat
when it comes to recruiting in the next
few years.
In the current economic environment
we have many opportunities to advance
student success, particularly closing the
gap, and reforming our mid-
Sdie and high schools where
American students start to
fall short when compared to .
their colleagues around the .
world.
We have stability with
improved retention and lead-'
ership at all levels including
the School Board itself.
When we talk about student
success, we are a team. When
we.discuss the measures of
student success we are a Andy GI
team. When we debate issues elected
with-respect to student suc- Board c
cess, we are challenging one Tuesdc
another to do better and colleag
despite the heated discussions bo
we are functioning as a team.
Teams do not have to agree
but they do need to challenge one
another to get the best out of each
other's talent that each has to contribute.
And at the end of any discussion, a poli-
cy decision should be made and we
must all support the will of the board as
long as that will is in pursuit of student
success.
If our discussions center on student
success and how best to-accomplish
these kinds of measurable goals, we can
never be accused of smallness. When
we (the board) appear or act small, we
(the school system) cannot be great.
Even those who disagree with us will
still respect us for keeping the main
thing the main thing.
We have many programs that con-
tribute to our mission in Monroe
County schools. We know that some get
us more bang for the buck than others.
We must challenge the management to
discern which programs should be
expanded and which should be dimin-
ished or eliminated to reallocate our \


precious resources, and then prove to us
the governing body that they are correct
in their assessment of those program
decisions.
Then management will do this during
engaging workshops until consensus is
reached. And then we will have very
streamlined board meetings as a conse-
quence of this up-front work.
.We have too many activities going on
in our district to make discussion practi-
cal at the board level on each one. We -
must focus on the big picture, student
success and the sustainability of that
mission for continuing success.
We must set'measurable goals for stu-
dent success, so that we can
Evaluate ourselves and hold
ourselves and the district
management accountable for
student success.
Board (business) meetings
Should consist of reports on
student success. This is also
a report to the community
(stock holders) on student
success. Reports should
include assessments that are
conducted both from inside
ffiths was and outside the School
School District-to insure maximum
chairman credibility and transparency.
y by his -A staff must be motivated
es on the to excel. We must praise in
ard. public and celebrate success
and ask critical questions,
but attempt to critique, in pri-
vate with management and be careful
not to diminish the good work that goes
on in our school system.
By thinking big rather than small, we
can improve greatness potential. If we
focus on trivial details like who takes a
vehicle home, we lose our bigness. We
need to set broad ambitious goals and
clear parameters while in pursuit of
those goals that force the small details
to take care of themselves.
Let me give you an example of a goal
worthy of reaching for: Welcome to
Monroe County schools, where every
student goes to college and graduates
with a higher degree. Now, that's worth
talking about and we will never be
small again.
In today's global economy and the
international competition that goes with
that economy, we should shoot for noth-
ing less. I get excited just writing the
words. Imagine implementing a plan to
achieve that goal. Yes we can.

New county Fire Chief Chad Brocato (left) is congratulated by
County Administrator Roman Gastesi (center) and Jim
Callahan, who had been the acting chief.


New fire chief


takes the helm


Monroe County Administrator
Roman Gastesi introduced Chad
Brocato Wednesday as the next
chief of Monroe County Fire
Rescue.
Gastesi made the announce-
ment at the Monroe County
Commission meeting in Key
Largo, where Brocato spoke.
briefly and said he was thrilled at
the opportunity.
"If you look at the resume, I'
think it's self explanatory. We're
lucky to be able to attract a guy
with those kinds of talents and
young enough to take us to the
next level, which everyone is
expecting from Monroe County
Fire Rescue," Gastesi told the
Keynoter.
Brocato, 40, has been the
assistant chief for Deerfield
Beach Fire Rescue since 1994,
where he oversees an annual
budget in excess of $18 million.
Gastesi said many of his peers
in the Keys are already familiar
with Brocato.
"I talked to a lot of people
from different walks of life and
different sides of the fence and
they all had good things to say,"
he said.
Brocato's resume includes a
master's degree in medical sci-
ences and a health sciences doc-


torate from Nova Southeastern
University. He is a certified fire-
fighter, emergency medical tech-
nician and paramedic, and has
completed numerous fire-related
courses.
"How did you manage to do
so much and still look so
young?" Commissioner Mario Di
'Gennaro joked with Brocato.
A committee made up of six
county officials chose Brocato
from a pool of 43 applicants.
Gastesi said he will bring a
fully vetted contract to the com-
mission at its December meeting
and that Brocato will take over
for acting Chief Jim Callahan at
the beginning of the new year.
Callahan first became acting
chief in 2006, when he took over
for Clark Martin Jr., who got can-
cer. Martin, who died Nov. 1,
resigned in 2007 and Callahan
remained chief until Wayne
Hinnant was hired in, August
2007.
But Hinnant resigned in
March and Callahan once again
took the reins.
Hinnant was making
$118,000 a year when he
resigned. The position was adver-
tised with a pay range from
$76,395 to $97,404, plus bene-
fits, but Gastesi said Brocato's
salary is still being negotiated.

Pribramsky sees new 'gang of 3'


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Now that a voting bloc called
the Gang of Three on the Monroe
County Commission has been
dismantled in this year's election,
could another be forming on the
School Board?
Former Chairman Steve
Pribramsky said there is now a
clear division, with him and ally
John Dick on one side and board
members Andy Griffiths, Debra
Walker and Duncan Mathewson'
on the other.
This comes after what
Pribramsky called the "surpris-
ing" and "unfortunate" selection
of Griffiths as the new chairman at
Tuesday's meeting in Key West.
"We've got our own gang'of
three now, and it became loud
and clear," Pribramsky said after
the meeting. "That was about as
big of a slap in the face as I've
ever seen. It sure changed my
attitude about things."
Pribramsky said the slap in the
face was to Dick, who most board
members said before Tuesday
was a likely choice to be the next
chairman if Mathewson again
turned down the post.
The role of chairperson is


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Eighteen months after it
changed meeting times to 5:30
p.m., the Marathon City Council
on Tuesday will discuss whether
to revert back to the original start
time of 6:30 p.m.
Councilman Pete Worthington
put the item on Tuesday's agenda
after the issue was raised several
times leading up to the Nov. 4 elec-
tions. He said public attendance
has fallen off significantly since
the meetings were moved up.
"I did not hear one person run-
ning for City Council that was in
agreement with keeping it at
5:30. They thought public partic-
ipation is important and giving
them an opportunity to get
cleaned up and come down to the
council meeting is important,"
Worthington said.
Councilwoman Ginger Snead
said she favors the change if it


m.. t largely cere-
monial ,
although .the
chair is respon-
sible for man-
aging meeting
discussion and
helping the
superintendent
GRIFFITHS set meeting
agendas. The
.chairperson also has the last and
potentially swing vote.
Tuesday was the 10th anniver-
sary of Griffiths being named
School Board chairman the first
time. This will be his fourth time
in the position.
The board has often rotated
the position among its members.
Last year, Mathewson was nomi-
nated but passed the chairman-
ship to Pribramsky.
Before Tuesday's meeting,
Mathewson said he was consider-
ing the position this year. But at
the meeting, he said he wouldn't
accept it if he were nominated.
Instead, Mathewson said he
supported Griffiths. because he
has been on the board for 16 years
and established contacts with
state legislators and the Florida


means more residents attend.
"I know it's inconvenient for
"the city employees, but we're
there to serve the residents,"
Snead said.
Vice Mayor Don Vasil, who
originally 'proposed the time
change, said attendance is down
at the meetings because items are
less controversial than in the past.
"People were coming back
then because of the contentious
development issues and I- really
feel lack of interest has been
because there's not too much of
that going on right now," he said.
Mayor Mike Cinque agreed,
saying the earlier start time keeps
meetings from running late.
Councilman Dick Ramsay
may prove to be the swing vote
on this item. He said he'll wait to
hear from the public Tuesday
before deciding what time is best.


School Board Association.
"In that sense, I thought he
would probably make a better
chair than I would," Mathewson
said.
Griffiths and Walker were
receptive to the potential nomina-
tion. Mathewson also said Walker
would make a good vice chair-
woman for the same reasons. She
was later selected.
"It's all going to be about
budget and appropriations,"
Walker said. "I've done quite a
bit of lobbying" in Tallahassee,
she said. "I think that's what
drove the issue."
Pribramsky said he didn't
understand the emphasis on
Griffiths' relationships with state
officials because the big issue this
year will be the district's own
spending.
"What's relevant this-year is the
budget crisis, and Mr. Dick is by
far the best at figuring out where
there's waste in our budget,"


Pribramsky said. He and Dick have
often clashed with Superintendent
Randy Acevedo and district staff
over budget details.
Dick said Mathewson proba-
bly didn't want him for chairman
because of their experience with
Sthe Marathon-based Education
Coalition for Monroe County.
Mathewson is the group's co-
founder and a board member.
"Dick, the group's treasurer for
three years, left this year because
he didn't like the direction the
group was taking, he said.
Dick recently opposed the
School District spending $60,000
for the Education Coalition's
summer music program, known
as CAMP. Mathewson supported
the funding.
"I think there's a movement
afoot," Dick said. "There's no
question it looks like [Mathewson,
Griffiths and Walker] are looking
for an easy year and trying to.not
get controversy pushed through."

Old Seven Mile Bridge off DOT's work list


2015 is the

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The state Department of
Transportation has delayed for at
least five years the planned refur-
bishment of the old Seven Mile
Bridge off Marathon.
Alice Bravo, OT's District 6


director of transportation systems
development, made the
announcement at Wednesday's
Monroe County Commission
meeting in Key Largo. She said
when DOT presents its next Keys
work plan in December, the
bridge project will be off the list.
"It will be deferred from the
five-year work plan covering fis-
cal years 2010 to 2014," Bravo
said.

Bravo told the commission
declining consumption has
shrunk DOT's work program sig-
nificantly.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro appeared defeated when
he asked Bravo, "Were wve just an
easy target?"
Bravo responded that the vol-
ume of traffic a bridge accommo-
dates weighs funding for projects
heavily.
"That hurts this project,"
Bravo said. "We have to prioritize
our funding."
The 2.2-mile span leading to
historic Pigeon Key was closed to
vehicular traffic March 4 due to its


degradation. Then in mid-June,
DOT banned fishing from what
was among the most popular
shoreline fishing spots in the Keys.
But the only traffic before that
most days was "Henry," a' Jeep-
turned-trolley used to transport
visitors to the island. The bridge
is open only to pedestrians and
bicyclists now.
Pigeon Key Foundation Vice
President Jim Rhyne said a strug-
gling economy has "played hell"
with the island and news of
DOT's decision is just more
adversity to overcome.
"We'll continue to operate as
best we can and provide access as
best we can," Rhyne said. He
insisted the foundation would not


shut down.
"There's a tremendous volun-
teer effort with the city of
Marathon we've been able to rely
on; not for money, but to keep the
place up," he said.
Visitors can reach the island
via a DOT-funded ferry service
that launches from the Knights
Key Campground. The county
received a $750,000 grant from
DOT to fund the ferry for up to
three years.
The contract with Paradise
Divers Inc. of Big Pine Key was
agreed to in November 2007 and
commenced a month later. The
commission on Wednesday
approved the second of four pos-
sible six-month extensions.

Like the Energizer bunny,
she keeps going and going -
and counting and counting.
On Nov. 4, Vanden Brook
lost the Group 4 Monroe
County Circuit Court judge
race to Tegan Slaton by four
votes. Not confident in the
results -. despite several
recounts overseen by the
county Elections Canvassing
Board she spent Tuesday
and Thursday reviewing bal-
lots.
And she plans to be back at
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer's office in Key West
this coming week to continue


reviewing ballots.
She's already spent several
hours diligently taking notes
as 'she reviewed ballots faxed
in from overseas, rejected
absentee ballots and provi-
sional ballots.
"I've made a lot of notes
and I've seen some things that
I need to look harder at,"
Vanden Brook told the
Keynoter Friday.
The state Division of
Elections certified the election
results on Monday. As of that
day, Vanden Brook had 10
days to bring a challenge.
Speaking about ballots
faxed in from overseas, which
is common for Monroe County
residents Who are abroad,
Vanden Brook said, "I think
[Thursday] I finished up most
of what they had ready for me
to see. I still needed them to


find a portion of the faxed bal-
lots."
On Election Day, Slaton
was ahead by nine votes.
Following review of provi-
sional ballots by the Elections
Canvassing Board, Slaton's
lead was bumped up to 15
votes.
Next, a machine recount
revealed a deadlock, with both
candidates at 16,441 votes.
Finally, a manual recount on
Nov. 11 came out with Slaton
as the winner by four votes.
As the final day to bring
forth a challenge approaches,
the Wednesday before
Thanksgiving, Vanden Brook
said, "I don't have a feel for
everything yet."
Slaton, who at this point is
set to take over the bench from
retiring Judge Sandra Taylor
for an annual salary of
$140,000, was unavailable for
comment on Friday.

County wants
Gulf Seafood
for 'perpetuity
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


I


The Monroe County Com-
mission on Wednesday voted to
apply for a state grant to acquire
Gulf Seafood, an eight-acre
Stock Island parcel the county
would usein perpetuity to house
commercial fishermen.
According to the county,
property owner WSG Sand Lake
L.P. will consider a sale of $11
million to $12 million.
The county will pursue the
property through the Stan
Mayfield Working Waterfronts
Program Grant. Mayfield, a state
representative who died while in
office Sept. 30, sponsored a bill
aimed at using Florida Forever
money, normally used to acquire
environmentally sensitive land,
to acquire working waterfront
property.
Up to $7.5 million is avail-
able.
Several local fishermen
spoke in favor of applying for
the grant, saying the property
would provide stabilization for
the industry and guarantee it
would always have a place to do


business. .
"They've seen everything go
away and they're looking for a
future," Jeff Cramer, vice presi-
dent of the Organized Fishermen
of Florida.
But Stock Island Lobster Co.
President Peter Bacle said the
county is "trying to cut the legs
out from under me" by purchas-

ing the property.
"There is actually' an excess
of dock -areas in Key West. I
have at my fish house 12 to 15
spaces I can accommodate boats
at," he said.
Bacle said he feels purchas-
ing the property would draw
fishermen away from the fish
houses.


"Fish houses operate on a
very slim margin these days. I
cannot afford to lose boats," he
said.
But Islamorada trap fisher-
man Gary Nichols said fish
houses can sell anytime and
leave fishermen with no place to
turn.
"You have to look at a place
for the future," Nichols said.
The Mayfield grant allows
$7.5 million of the $300 million.
allocated to Florida Forever by
the state Legislature to be used
to acquire working waterfront.
It's possible one project can
receive the full amount.
Grants Administrator Lisa
Tennyson told the commission
it's unclear whether the money
would be available again next
year and that she's exploring
options to offset the remaining
cost. That includes leaseholds
for fishermen and a partnership
with the U.S. Navy.
The state Department of
Community Affairs will rank,
applicants for the grant and
should Gulf Seafood be ranked
No. 1, the county would prepare
a detailed business plan,
Tennyson said. The grant appli-
cation is due by Tuesday.
"Perpetuity is the key work,"
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro sidd. "It's a one-time
opportunity to get a large grant."


McGrail joins bight board


He's ist tenant
to have a say
in management
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Sebago Watersports co-owner
Paul McGrail has been tapped as
the newest member of the Key
West Bight Management District
Board.
Tuesday, the City Commission
appointed McGrail, who becomes
the first business owner at the
Key West Bight to serve on the
board that oversees it.
The board oversees businesses
in the bight at the historic seaport
and makes recommendations to
the City Commission about
upkeep, maintenance and devel-
opment direction.
When th6 measure to allow


bight tenants to serve on the
board first came before commis-
sioners, concerns about possible
conflicts of interest were laid to
rest.,
Also Tuesday:
Commissioners Bill Verge
and Dan Kolhage presented Bill
Rowan, husband of Sheila
Rowan, an activist and constant
presence at local government
meetings who died Aug. 6, with a
plaque that will hang in Old tity"
Hall.
Kolhage fondly remembered
riding in the elevator with Sheila
following a commission meeting,
saying, "A lot of profound
knowledge was given to-me in
that one-floor elevator ride."
A brass tag will also be placed
on Sheila's favorite chair in the
commission chambers on Greene
Street.


Commissioners gave unani-
mous approval, with the excep-
tion of Mayor Morgan
McPherson, who was absent, to
allow Bruce Neff and Patricia
Madiedo to construct a replica
facade of a cigar maker's cottage
at Gato Village Pocket Park at
616 Louisa St.
Commission approval was the
last hurdle for the project, which
has already been given the go-
ahead from the Art in Public
Places board and the Historic
Architectural Review Com-
mission.
Frank Garner, chairman of the
Art in Public Places board, tours
the state viewing other municipal
art projects. Referring to the cigar
maker's cottage, he said, "This is
one of the most exciting projects
I have seen in our state yet. This
is the perfect marriage of art,
architecture and history."

Officials deposed in Neary police case


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key West city employees were
deposed this week in the ongoing
case of fired Police Officer Tom
Neary, who is suing the city for
$6 million in compensatory and
punitive damages.
Key West City Manager Jim
Scholl confirmed on Friday that
staff was involved in depositions
but the only name he mentioned
was his own.
Scholl declined to go into
specifics because "obviously;
there's ongoing litigation there."
He did say, "We're going to par-
ticipate with the legal process as
required. Hopefully, we'll pre-
vail. The city's position is we did


the right thing."
Neary's claim against the city,
filed in December 2007, stems
from an Internal Affairs and sub-
sequent FBI investigation into
allegations that he claimed to be a
federal agent sent to investigate
corruption within the Key West
Police Department.
On Oct. 26, 2007, Key West
police questioned Neary about
whether he was impersonating a
federal agent; then Neary was
suspended.
In December 2007, the FBI
released the results of an investi-
gation into Neary's claims of
being a federal agent. The U.S.
Attorney's Office declined to


prosecute.
Following his suspension,
Neary compiled a long list of
allegations against the city and
brought the lawsuit. He alleges:
He witnessed a female offi-
cer cheat on a computer-training
course and take the course
numerous times for officers not
present.
+ The department's evidence
scale was not properly calibrated.
A police captain changed a


female officer's score on a
weapons qualification drill.
"We investigated [Neary's]
claims of corruption, and they
were unsubstantiated," FBI
spokeswoman' Judy Orihuela
said.
While Neary was on suspen-
sion, then-Police Chief Bill
Maudlin resigned amid allega-
tions of sexual harassment and
was replaced by current Chief
Donie Lee. Based on the Internal


Affairs investigation, Lee recom-
mended that Neary be fired on
May 29, 2008.
City spokeswoman Alyson
Crean, speaking for Lee, said in
an e-mail, "We can't comment on
ongoing litigation."
City Attorney Shawn Smith
also said he couldn't comment on
the case. Neary's attorney,
Michael Barnes, was in court on
Friday and unavailable for com-
ment.

lence violating a domestic vio-
lence injunction was charged

Three are jailed
after short chase

Three people traveling in a
car in Key Largo fled from
deputies tiorthbound and were
caught after hitting a Miami-
Dade police car in Florida City
Thursday, says the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
The incident began in Key
Largo at 3:30 p.m. when
Deputy John Perez spotted the
black Chevy Lumina south-
bound at mile marker 100. He
checked the vehicle's tag and
found it belonged on a differ-
ent vehicle, a Chevy pickup.
A short pursuit followed
after the Lumina made a U-
turn and started heading north.
Keys deputies called them-
selves off and enlisted the help
of the Florida Highway Patrol
and Miami-Dade' police.
Troopers continued the pursuit
from mile marker 106 north to
Florida City, where the Lumina
collided with a Miami-Dade
police car.
The driver, James Lewis,
33, of Homestead was charged
with hit and run, fleeing and
eluding police, driving without
a license .and aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon.
Passengers Quinton Davis, 23,
and David Johnson, 26, were

CITY OF MARATHON, FLORIDA
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The Marathon City Council will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, December.9, 2008 at
5:30 p.m., at the Marathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas Highway.

The purpose of the public hearing is to consider and establish a Special Taxing Unit for
parcels along Avenue K. The Special Taxing Unit will cover the costs to install Avenue K.
Each lot owner would be charged a proportionate share of the road improvement costs.,


and general contractor would
complete the project.
"Their contractual time ended
Aug. 8 and it's now Nov. 20 and
they still have another six months
or so of work to do," Horton said.
"Legal staff's recommenda-
tion was that we continue with
them now. If you want to termi-
nate a contract, there's tremen-
dous legal ramifications," he said.
On Nov. 14, County
Administrator Roman Gastesi
charged Horton with overseeing
Morganti's work on the long-
delayed $31.6 million terminal
complex and adjacent parking
garage. The project has been
marred by cost overruns, delays
and even the death of a construc-
tion worker at the site.
Horton replaced County
Engineer Dayid Koppel as the
county's lead person on the air-
port construction.


Horton said the latest dates -
Feb. 27 to complete the terminal
and June 7 to finish interior work
- are firm.
"My job is to see they do not
go past," he said. "If they do,
someone else will finish up."
The project is already $6.6
million over its budget original
budget of $25 million, which was
to be the guaranteed price. Under
then-County Administrator Tom
Willi, the price ballooned to
$31.6 million.
Horton's first move will be to
hire local firm Perez Engineering
as an independent resident
inspector. The previous inspector
was the county's Engineering
Department under Koppel.
"I don't care what happened in
the past. If they continue to work
and we continue' to work with
them, we'll get it done," Horton
said.

Published Keynoter 11/05/08, 11/12/08, 11/22/08, 11/26/08 & 12/06/08


Elected officials who oversee
Key Largo's fire and ambulance
services are asking Monroe
County commissioners not to
draft an ordinance to use proper-
ty taxes for a Keyswide trauma
airlift service.
The board of the Key Largo
Fire Rescue & Emergency
Medical Services District sent a
letter to the Monroe County
Commission dated Nov. 14 that
says the helicopter service,.
known as TraumaStar, is expen-
sive and unnecessary. The letter
was read at the County
Commission's Wednesday meet-
ing in Key Largo.
Bill Andersen, chairman of the
fire and emergency district's
board, said in an interview that
LifeNet has a helicopter in Key
West and one in South Miami-
Dade County that could handle
the Keys' trauma and hospital-to-
hospital transport needs at little
or no cost to taxpayers.
He said TraumaStar, which
has been flying from Marathon
since 2002, started out "as a toy
for the sheriff" and is of no use to


the Upper Keys.
"If I lived in Marathon, sure I
would want my own personal
helicopter, and I would be thrilled
to have the county pay for it,"
Andersen said.
If the county commission OKs
the TraumaStar proposal, proper-
ty owners below mile marker 95.
are expected to pay about $52 a
year on their property tax bills,
and, those above mile marker 95
would pay about $27 a year.
Assistant -County Attorney
Bob Shillinger said a public hear-
ing on the proposed ordinance is
scheduled for Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. at
the Marathon Government Center.
The county needs about $2
million a year in taxes to pay for
TraumaStar. The county also bills
patients' insurance companies for
TraumaStar service. LifeNet bills
patients also, but not the county.
The Miami-Dade Air Rescue hel-
icopter doesn't charge patients or
Monroe County.
Municipalities and taxing dis-
tricts outside unincorporated
Monroe County can opt out of
the TraumaStar ordinance if it
passes.

Competing economic panels?


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

As promised, Marathon Vice
Mayor Don Vasil is bringing his
plan for a city economic develop-
ment commission before the
newly seated City Council
Tuesday.
He suggested the idea on July
22 after perceived resistance
from fellow council members to
expand the City of Marathon
Marina in increments of 20 slips.
When the council didn't support
a plan to begin the permitting
process for 90 slips at an Oct. 28
meeting, Vasil called the council
"shortsighted" and said it has "no
vision for the future."
The plan for an economics
commission was for each council
member to make an appointment,
but Vasil says he'd like the com-
mission to include two permanent
members from the Greater
Marathon Chamber of Commerce.
"I found that the chamber


seemed to be reluctant to support
it because some of the members
felt we were leaving them out,"
Vasil said. "T'e chamber does
wonderful work for the people of
this city and should be included
in a commission that will try to
put the whole community togeth-
er to revitalize our economy."
But the.chamber already has a
similar committee, its Marathon
Economic Development Council.
The council began in 1995 as a
subcommittee and af its height
had as many as 400 members.
Chamber President Britt
Myers said having two separate
groups will not work in the long
run and that the council and
chamber should be working
together.
S"No matter how this happens,
it needs to happen. It needs to go
beyond who controls what and
who has the power," Myers said.
Vasil said he feels the ability


Advisory boards


could change


Keynoter Staff


Ordinances that could give
voters more say in who serves on
the Marathon- Planning
Commission and Code
Compliance Board head to a
showdown at Tuesday's 5:30
p.m. City Council meeting.
Mayor Mike Cinque said he's
pushing the changes so' that
newly elected council members
can appoint "someone who
reflects their views" on both
advisory boards.
Currently, appointments
require winning a majority vote
of the council. Terms don't expire
when their sponsor's term on the
council ends.
"Once elected, the will of the
people has been expressed,"
Cinque said.
Former mayor Pete
Worthington said he was caught
off guard Friday when he heard
about the two ordinances. -
He said the proposals would
fundamentally change the way
appointees are selected and how
long they can serve, and might
even require "firing everyone"
currently serving and then reap-
pointing them.


"Why should politics be
involved in the code board?"
Worthington said. "Maybe there
are some people [on that board]
he [Cinque] doesn't like."
Councilman Don Vasil said
his phone has been ringing off the
hook as word spread about the
possible changes.
"My impression is the new
mayor has some changes that
need to be made on the makeup
of the boards, but I don't .know
his reasoning," Vasil said.
Councilman Dick Ramsay
said he's also getting a lot of calls
about the issue, but says he wants
to "sit back and listen to both
sides." Ramsay said that serving
on both boards creates the
appearance of a "conflict of inter-
est" and added he expects that
issue will be part of the debate
Tuesday night.
Here are the five current
Planning Commission members
and when their terms expire:
Morgan- Hill, 2010; Larry
Shaffer, 2010; Lucignano, 2010;
Claude Halioua, 2009; James
Tashjian, 2009. All terms are due to
expire in January of the year listed.


of a City Council panel to set pol-
icy would "attract heavy hitters in
the business community."
"I don't. want government
involving themselves in the busi-
ness affairs of the private sector,
but the council does have the
power to set policy, which can
help facilitate the needs of our
business community," he said.
But support appears to be
tepid among the council..
Councilwoman Ginger Snead
said it's not the council's job to
advance economic development.
"We have a chamber working
on an economic group right now
- actually the same name. It's
not our job to be doing the
tourism part," Snead said.

ij A controversial Department of
Transportation plan to add a
"fifth lane" along parts of U.S. 1
in Key Largo got the official
thumbs down Wednesday from
the Monroe County Commission.
DOT intends to widen the
northbound shoulder of U.S. 1
between mile markers 93.and 106
IAPEL to 10 feet and have it marked for
HOOL emergency use only. The project
-0700 is part of DOT's plan to eliminate
O0 am potential bottlenecks throughout
the Keys during hurricane evacu-
ES K-5th nations.
The commission voted 3-2
against the yvidening but that has
little to no bearing on the project,
since a local government can't
-q overrule a state agency.
F GOD According to DOT's presenta-
7165 tion to the commission, approxi-
rch10AM mately. 11,800 evacuating vehicles
PM' enter U.S. 1 from the Tavemier/
foship Key Largo area. The high volume,
mily of vehicles entering the stream
Causes delays further' south.
But many residents disagreed,
saying Key Largo is not a bottle-
1 i neck and raising concerns
motorists will use the shoulder

6 crossing guards let go


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

To save $90,000 in the current
budget year, the city -of Key West
will eliminate six school crossing
guard positions as of Dec. 1.
Key West City Manager Jim
Scholl said the cuts were a col-
laborative effort that will save
money in lean budget times.
"We've coordinated with the
School Board, with the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office and with
the Monroe County administrator
[Roman Gastesi]. We started
looking at it trying to look at all
the things that cost us money and
.how to justify those expenses,"
Scholl said.
Apparently the six guards
weren't justification for how
much they. cost.
The following locations will
no longer have crossing guards:
May Sands School, Reynolds
School, Mary Immaculate, Grace
Lutheran, Glynn Archer
Elementary and Horace
O'Bryant Middle.
Police Chief Donie Lee said,
"We are working to fill any gaps
in-those six affected areas with
traffic patrols whenever possible."
Crean said that based upon a
traffic study, and 4n, 9piioni by


the Florida Attorney GeneraFs
Office, none of the current
manned locations within the city
requires staffing. However, all
agreed the program is beneficial,
so city managers recommended
doing away with the six positions
but retaining 11 others based on
results of the study.
Scholl called the placement of
crossing guards a "safety
enhancement."
The city of Key West is
responsible for funding school
crossing guards within the city,
and the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office oversees the program.
The Sheriff's Office notified the
crossing guards early this week,
Crean said.
She said the Sheriff's Office
has offered the crossing guards
affected by the decision the
option of remaining employed
substitute crossing guards so they
can be on call and eligible for
part-time status if a position
comes available.
In the meantime, the city "is
assuring that each of the [affect-
ed] locations is sufficiently
marked for the protection of stu-
dents in the area," Crean wrote in
an e-mail.

Fisherman's evolves


Restaurant
re-opens with
new owners
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Fisherman's Wharf in
Marathon has new owners
ready to chart a different
course for the waterfront
eatery.
The restaurant, tucked just
off the Seven Mile Bridge on
the bayside, reopened quietly
earlier this week. It's now
open 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
daily, serving breakfast, lunch
and dinner, with karaoke on
Wednesday and Sunday
evenings.
New owners and Keys new-
comers Allan and Violet Van
As are originally from South
Africa, but they've spent the
past decade in England.
"When we saw this place,
we fell in love," said Violet.
The Van Ases say they
decided to look for a restaurant
in Florida to buy to be close to
their son, who's working on a
master's degree in animation
at the' Digital Media Arts
College in Boca Raton.


They were close, to sealing a
deal on a restaurant in Delray
Beach when Violet suggested
they take just one more look at
the Web site where they'd been
business shopping. That was
about 8 o'clock in the evening:
The next morning, they were
heading to the Keys to check
out. the just-posted for-sale
listing, that had caught their
eye Fisherman's Wharf.
The whirlwind visit wasn't
their first time in the Keys.
The family had traveled exten-
.sively in Florida, but said they
loved the Keys Marathon,
in particular the most. They
bought the business from the
previous owners, Linda Kane
and her family, and they're
leasing the building.
Fast-forward a week and the
Ases are standing on the roof
deck of Fisherman's Wharf
talking about their vision for
the restaurant. With the soft
opening just a few days away,
they'd already put an exhaust-
ing round of paperwork behind
them and were moving on to
the plans for the menu, for a
renovated downstairs bar, for
the grand opening, for New
Year's Eve. This is their grand
opening weekend.
. .At Fisherman's .Wharf,,the .


Van Ases are calling on their
prior experience running a
popular restaurant in Durban, a
city of 3 million people on
South Africa's coast., Their
homemade burgers were
famous there, they say, and
they hope they'll gain fame
here, as well. The eclectic and
evolving menu offers several
different burger combinations,
and they can also be made to
order, just like the omelets
they're serving for breakfast.
Their goal is to offer fresh,
affordable fare to locals and
visitors alike.
But they also want to bring
a little international flair to
Marathon. Crepes and jacket
potatoes that's British for a
stuffed baked potato will be
on the menu, along with fish
and chips and bangers and
mash. Lunch will feature some
light offerings, such as the
aforementioned potatoes and
salads. They're also planning a
top-of-the-line coffee bar
using freshly ground beans.
Fisherman's Wharf is next
to the 7 Mile Marina, at the
last bayside turn before you
reach the bridge approach in
Marathon. The address is 1090
Overseas Highway. Call 394-
686 7.. ..- .

around the corner. there's
may be no beer present fur

429 Caroline St. in the his-
toric Porter Mansion.

Monroe County historian
Tom Haimbright will present a
talk on the Armory and turn
of the century architecture in
Key West. The presentation
will be followed by a ques-
tion-and-answer session with
the audience.
The doors of the historic
Key West Armory will open
at 6:30 p.m. for a wine and
hors d'oeuvres reception. On
exhibit will be artwork fea-
tured in "The Armory Show:
A historic building inspires
local artists." A number of
artists will works in the show
will be in attendance, includ-
ing Sandford Birdsey,
William Welch, Deb Kik, and
Deborah Goldman. Also on
display will be the original
building documents for the
Armory from 1902.
The Armory building was
originally contracted "for the
sum of eight thousand, seven
hundred nineteen dollars" and
was built shortly after a cen-
sus taken in 1890 revealed
Key West to be Florida's
largest and wealthiest city.
Although isolated from the
mainland by the sea, the
island's cigar and sponge
products were at the peak of
their production. The Armory,
which exemplifies this opu-
lent period in Key West's his-
tory, is one of the few
remaining large frame build-
ings from the time.
"The Studios of Key West
is truly lucky to be able to
call the Armory home,",ays
program coordinator Martha
Barnes. "We wanted to cele-
brate this place where so
much creative work is hap-
pening today, and explore
what it has meant to artists
and islanders through the
years."
"The-Armory Show" will
be on display at TSKW
through Dec. 12. For more
information about the exhibi-
tion or the lecture contact The
Studios of Key West at 296-

Politico
portraits
are big hit
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@lkynoter.com
Sey West personalities and
a number of local politi-
cians discovered their
portraits hanging on the walls in
the lobby of the Gato building at
the Nov. 7 opening of the
MARC House exhibit "One
Human Family."
County Commissioner Mario
di Gennaro, there with his
daughter Vanessa, said he'd be
buying the-portrait done of him,
with a scruff of golden hair and
mustache. And Commissioner
SylviaMurphy posed smiling
next to her portrait as people
took pictures.
It is not often that the faces of
politicians inspire great art: In
larger cities we find caricatures
on the Op-Ed pages of newspa-
pers. And governors have their
portraits painted after leaving
office. Here in the Keys, we are
Lucky to have the artists of the
MARC House, who've complet-
ed some great pieces under the
direction of Doug Morris of the
ReMARCable Art program.
We've chosen the portraits of
politicians to make up the cover
of this week's L'Attitudes.
Morris admits there was some
calculation in choosing to have
his students, who are develop-

Pirates and wenches will cel-

Sunday, Dec. 7, during the annu-
al Pirates in Paradise Festival.
Hundreds of re-enactors will
drop anchor for activities
including living history pirate

tall ship sails and the staged re-
creation of the trial of notorious
female pirates Anne Bonny and
Mary Read.

colored drawings of members of
the County Commission and
Key West City Commission,
saying the MARC House wanted
to give a nod to, and maybe help
ensure, their continued support.
All of the drawings of elected
officials were made from photo-
graphs Morris found online. But
it is easy to see an artist's indi-
vidual style like how the fig-
ures of Key West City
Commissioners Teri Johnston
and Mark Rossi lean to one side
Sin the portraits by Jack Knowles,
with arms held tight to the body,
and vertical markings accentuat-
ing their length.
Michael Neri is maybe the
most serious artist in the MARC
House arts program. For the East
Martello exhibit this past spring,
Neri did life-sized portraits of a
pirate and his girlfriend por-
traits that were the centerpiece of
the whole show. For the "One
Human Family" exhibit at the
Gato building,Neri drew por-
traits of Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy, Key West city commis-
sioner Bill Verge and one of
Senator Hillary Clinton, shown
head back and laughing. Felicia
Font did the portraits of John
McCain and Mayor of Key West
Morgan McPherson, Orlando


Doug Morris
Triz did the portraits of di
Gennaro and former Key West
Mayor Jimmy Weekley, and
Philip Thurston did the portrait
of Key West City Commissioner

"I Served the King of England" at the Tropic


By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

IServed the King of England"
by Bohumil Hrabal was one
of those great works of
European literature that never
made it onto cross-Atlantic
flights. No one knows of it here.
It could be that it wouldn't be
understood by Americans who,
for the whole of their history,
have never felt much futility and
who are recently fond of the
chant: "Yes we Can."
Czechs are famous for saying,
essentially, "Why bother?"
Really. They go to sleep" mutter-
ing this at night, as they imagine
dark clouds passing by overhead
in place of our leaping sheep.
But in the works of the author
Bohumil Hrabal and other Czech
authors there is a faint wistful-
ness that things might have been
different in their country.
In the opening of "Closely
Watched Trains," a book by the
same author, the narrator tells of
his grandfather who believed he
could stop the German tanks that
rolled into Prague at the start of
World War II with the power of
his thoughts. He stood in their
way, refusing to move, sending
mental signals to the tanks to
turn back. He was squashed to a
pancake and the tanks rolled
right on. But the narrator, as an
afterthought, says that maybe if
others had also stood in front of
the tanks that day that maybe the
Germans could have been
stopped.
"I Served the King of
England" is a story about a wait-
er whose joy and pride it is to
serve in the restaurant of the
Golden Prague Hotel. It is prob-
ably the greatest novel ever writ-
ten with a waiter as the main
character.
The film premiered in Europe
last year, and is playing at the
Tropic Cinema in Key West for
five days only from Nov. 21 -
Nov. 25. Jiri Menzel, who wrote
the screenplay and directed the
film, won an Academy Award for
'Best Foreign Language Film' in
1968 for his film adaptation of
"Closely Watched Trains."
To say that "I Served the
King of England" is about a
waiter is oversimplifying it. It is
about many things. As with a lot
of great Czech literature, it has a
good bit of sex to it, with the
main character, Jan Dite, remi-
niscing about his first experir,,,


about ten animals, one inside of
the other, with a gazelle as the
outer shell.
Roger Ebert noted in his
review of "I Served the King of
England" for the Chicago Sun-
Times that the humor is a sly,
ironic humor the kind loved
by writers like Mark Twain and
H.L. Mencken. And, I would
add, by P.G. Wodehouse. It is not
familiar now to American audi-
ences, but can be whiffed, and
enjoyed thoroughly, by those
who enter the theatre in the right
state of mind.


Wrapped in this sly humor is
the tragedy of a nation of people
who've been bashed about by
history. Unlike the grandfather in
"Closely Watched Trains," Dite
goes happily along with the Nazi
occupation, and marries a
German, girl who's sworn her
loyalty to the Third Reich. But
history twists around, and when
the Germans are driven out,
Dite's plans for a prosperous
future as owner of his own hotel
fall by the side of the road that
leads to incarceration.


"I Served the King England," based on the novel of the same
name by Czech novelist Bohumil Hrabal, was released in
Europe in January of 2007, and in the United States in August of
this year.


ences with women. I remember a
description in the novel, for
example, of his own small body
held up by the arch of the body
of the beautiful prostitute as she
reaches a climax.
The story is told as a series of
flashbacks. The narrator has just
been released from prison, where
he was held as a political prison-
er for 14 years and eleven
months. The story really begins


with Dite going to work at the
Golden Prague Hotel in the
1930s under a maitre d' whose
entire identity is built on once
having served the king of
England: From this we get the
title of the novel, and the film.
Dite, eventually, has an
almost-equal honor of serving
the king of Abyssinia, who has
ordered the Czech chefs topre-
pare a feast that involves stuffing

West' next week


Recasts classic
ballet as
island fantasy
A classic holiday ballet,
recast as a unique inter-
pretation of Key West's
seafaring history, coral reef envi-
ronment and free-ranging rooster
population, is set for a 13-per-
formance run beginning Friday,
Nov. 28.
"Nutcracker Key West" is the
brainchild of Key West resident
Joyce Stahl, a classically trained
dancer who performed
Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker"
and other ballets with New
Jersey's American Repertory
Ballet for 38 years.
Stahl's Paradise Ballet
Theatre production, first per-
formed in 2005, transforms the
timeless story of young Clara's
visit to the land of the
Sugarplum Fairy into an island
fantasy featuring dancing snowy
egrets, phosphorescent sea
anemones, shimmering reef fish
and even a conch shell.
"Nutcracker Key West"
brings together dance profes-
sionals from around the United
States and includes more than 60
Florida Keys children in the
two-cast ensemble. The produc-
tion incorporates expertly crafted
sets and costumes designed by
Stahl and valued at more than
$800,000.
Performances of "Nutcracker
Key West" are to be staged at
the 500-seat Tennessee Williams


Theatre at 5901 College Rd. on
the campus of Florida Keys
Community College.
The show will open Friday,
Nov. 28 with a 7:30 p.m. curtain
and an opening party to follow.
Subsequent performances are at
8 p.m. on Nov. 29 and Dec. 5
and 6; 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 and
Dec. 2-4; 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 29
and 30 and Dec. 6 and 7; and
6:30 p.m. on Dec. 7 followed by
a closing party.
Tickets begin at $15 and can
be purchased online at www

Results from the Gulliver

So on Wednesday afternoon,


with the Sabres leading, 1-0, at

to a 4-1 victory in the cool

Memorial Stadium.
"We hustled and challenged,
and we were willing to knock
into people," Paul said, after the
Conchs improved to 3-3-1 over-
all and 3-0-1 in District 16-4A.
Thirteen minutes into the
second half, a shot by sopho-
more Jasmine Jones -tied the
game. Minutes later, she scored
again on a shot the St. Brendan
keeper misplayed.
"She's beginning to realize
how tough she is," Paul said of
Jones. "She wants to score and
she doesn't like to lose."
Late in the game, with the
Conch baseball team cheering
from the sidelines, senior
Scarlett Williams scored from
30 yards and senior Krizzie
Menez scored from 20.
Sophomore Jess Bodmer,
after a pre-game crash course in
goal tending, made an impor-
tant save late in the game when
the Conchs still led by only 2-1.
In the first half, she was beaten
on a breakaway Cristy

are the ones that get me,"
Bodmer said.

Wrestling squad fills its roster


24 come out,
season starts
today in Naples
By DICKWAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

On the brink of his fifth and
last season as Key West High
School's wrestling coach, John
Moeller brims with enthusi-
asm.
"I'm thrilled," the 58-year-
old former Ohio University
wrestler said. "There's a differ-
ent feeling in the rodm it's
full of people."
The "room" is the Conchs'
practice area a dank, sweat-
permeated onetime garage once
used for body-shop classes.
Now, for the first time in six
years, Key West has a complete
team of 24 wrestlers that will


compete in all 14 weight class-
es, beginning today in Naples
at the Golden Gate Invitational.
Last year's superstar, Ralph
Major, who won the state title
at 189 pounds, is now at Pratt
College in Kansas, but the
Conchs have some returning
veterans, led by 135-pound
senior Ben Covan, who also
reached the state meet.
Other returners include sen-
ior Greg Garcia (119 pounds),
senior Oscar Fernandez (125),
senior Cody Van Buren (130)
and junior Lou Wada (140).
New to the team is 275-pound
junior Kevin Pribramsky.
The upper weight classes
are being filled mostly by
Conch football players, who
were encouraged by coach
Jerry Hughes to come out for
the team. They include quarter-


back_ Stephen Jones, running
back Michael Sohi and linemen
SCory McCain and Jerry Regis.
Freshmen Matt Lockwood
and Max Llama are expected to
make an impact in the lower
weight classes with experience
gained in the Police Athletic
League Wrestling Club, a
group headed by 25-year-old
Chaz Jimenez, a Conch assis-
tant coach who will take over
for Moeller next season.
"I've been waiting for
somebody like Chaz to come
along," Moeller said of the
Conchs' 2001 state runner-up
wrestler.
Moeller, who wants to spend
more time with his family, also
conceded that he can't get
down on the mat to instruct his
wrestlers as much as he used
to. He laughed and said, "I can
only roll around a little bit
now."

Fins to open up


their hoops game


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

You won't be seeing players
wearing anything red or green
this year at a Marathon High
School basketball practice.
Coach Kevin Freeman-banned
the colors belonging to Monroe
County rivals Key West and
Coral Shores high schools. It's
not a slight on those teams, he
said, just an attempt to build pride
among his players.
S"It's all about us," Freeman
said. "We're trying to build a
family away from our families."
The Dolphins are looking to
bounce back from a sub par 9-14
record and Freeman says both he
and the players see the team's
potential.
"The thing about this year's
team is they see they can be a
really good team and they're get-
ting into it," Freeman said. He
said this year's roster is 'the
longest and most athletic team
he's ever coached.
Juniors Travis Leachman and
John Porter, along with senior
Alberic Forest and sophomore
Kenny Mangham, are all well


over 6 feet tall. Freeman said that
means the team can play a more
inside-out style of offense this
year.
"We're just going to open up
the floor a- little more and run
plays through the post. I'm confi-
dent now that they can get out
there and score from the post and
not rely on the three," he said.
Athletes like juniors A.J.
Freeman and Nyran Ross, fresh-
man Dwayne Ellis and sopho-
more Nate Kitchen round out the
squad. Freeman said he'd be
comfortable playing any of the
team's 11 players at any point in a
game.
But one player the Dolphins
will surely be missing this season
is Blake Friedman, a-standout
guardwho graduated last year.
"It was tough walking into the
gym that first day and not seeing
him there. He was a great player,
great for our program, and it will
be hard to replace him," Freeman
said.
Friedman has moved on to
Oxford Junior College, a feeder
school to Emory University,
where he is the starting point
guard.

very scrappy team and they
played well, but we had opportu-
nities on the goal and we could-
n't" convert.
Landry also praised the play of
Eagles' goalie Kaylin Wyatt, who
made numerous saves to keep
Island Christian in the game. -
"She's always in the right posi-
tion and you have to get her mov-
ing to score on her and we weren't
able to do it," he said.
Landry scored both goals from
just outside the 18-yard box. The
first came after she took the ball
from a scramble, eluded defenders
and took a shot that beat Wyatt to
the bottom left comer. The second
came off a throw in by Analis
Flores.
The Eagles' lone goal came in
the second half off a comer kick,
when Cailin Reckwerdt scored on
a head ball after a scramble in the
box.


Outside midfielder Judy
Valladares and defending mid-
fielder Megan McKenna did well
to help the Dolphins control the
middle of the field, Landry said.
Tuesday, the Dolphins did all
their damage in the second half,
netting four goals in the first 10
minutes and eventually winning
by that score.
"The first half was pretty much
even up. We couldn't do anything
offensively," Landry said, adding
moving Marina Kay Wiatt to for-
ward in the second half opened up
the field for the Dolphins.
Eighth-grader Taylor Konrath
scored on a crossing ball from
Landry two minutes into the half.
Wiatt got credit for the second
goal, which was actually an own
goal off the foot of a Doral
defender.
Landry netted the final two
goals for the Dolphins. The first
came off a give-and-go with Wiatt
and Konrath assisted on the sec-
ond.

Spaulding was expected
back for Friday's game
