Crash damages


power and water lines


Electric line
dangles over
accident site
An auto accident at mile
marker 58 Thursday night
caused traffic problems not only
because of vehicle wreckage, but
because power lines and water
pipes were damaged.
The head-on crash happened
shortly after 11 p.m., according to
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office. One person was injured


but refused transport to a hospital.
When deputies arrived at the
crash site, they found power
lines hanging precariously over
the accident scene. They said it
appeared the collision had bro-
ken a power pole.
A short time later, they also
reported an apparent water leak
from water lines under or near
the crash scene.
Both .. the Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative and Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority were


notified and responded. In the
meantime, deputies rerouted
traffic, managing to keep traffic
flowing as the investigation con-
tinued. The road was fully
reopened by 2:45 a.m.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday,
two other crashes occurred, one
at mile marker 23.5 that
involved a motorcycle and the
other at mile marker 59.2 in
which one auto wound up in the
mangroves; one driver reported-
ly fled.
Details of all three crashes
weren't available Friday.

"South Pointe Plaza Nursing
Center, Miami Beach."
Ostoich and Koehn are among
four residents who moved on
Friday. Only 14 patients remain
at the nursing home and they will
all be gone by Sunday. There had
been 80.
As nurses began to wheel
Ostoich toward the bus and
toward an unfamiliar new life in a
strange city she broke down.
"Who's going to feed the
chickens?" she asked quietly
with tears in her eyes. Donna
Rosado, the admissions director,
bit her lip and answered with a
smile. "I'll feed the chickens,"
she assured her friend.
A nurse. squeezed Ostoich's
shoulder. "Make sure they give
you banana cream pie at 4 in the
morning," she said.
A woman at the facility to take
her own mother home looked on
with a distant look of anguish:
She muttered while shaking her
head, "Breaking up a family."
The jocularity and together-
ness of Thanksgiving dinner on
Thursday was a distant memory
by Friday.
Koehn, as he waited to be
loaded onto the bus with his
sparse belongings contained by
white, drawstring trash bags, was
given a photo to comfort him.-
The collage bore the title
"Family, understand your past,
believe in your future."
Matted in the frame were yel-
lowed and sepia-toned" photos
depicting Koehn as a teenager,
another looking young and brave
adorned in full military dress, and
another standing proudly in front
of a classic car with a young bride.
Koehn was strangely silent as
three men loaded his frail and


uncooperative body onto the
waiting bus.
He has been through worse.
Koehn and his wife, the same
woman standing with him in
front of the car in the collage,
both moved into the convalescent
center two years ago. She passed
one year ago.
Rosado has been losing more
than individuals under her pro-
fessional care; she has been los-
ing friends ever since damning
inspections conducted by the
Florida Agency for Health Care
Administration in late October
and early November resulted in a
report alleging patient abuse and
improper document processing.
"They had a normal Thanks-
giving dinner here," she said. "I
think it went as well as could be
expected with them knowing they
were leaving today."
Patient restrictions such as the
availability of psychiatric care
and Medicare/Medicaid funding
have caused many of the relocat-
ed residents to be placed in sepa-
rate facilities in a variety of South
Florida locations.
The first wave was moved to
the Plantation Key Convalescent
Center, but -only 18 made .that
trip. The rest have been split up.
SWatching Ostoich and Koehn,
Rosado sighed and said, "They at
least could have been someplace
together."
Tennessee based MidCare Inc.
is trying to sell the facility, but by
the time a sale is brokered if
one is brokered the residents
will.be long gone.
"I was asked if I could show
the building next Wednesday,"
said Rosado, but she doesn't
know who will be looking.
Come Monday, only lingering
memories will live at the Key
West Convalescent Center.

Keys fishing industry

not a Bush priority

In the .waning days of the Bush administration, controversial
last-minute changes are being attempted to overturn such rules as
prohibiting dumping rock and dirt from mining operations. near
streams, requiring that endangered species habitat is considered
before approving major construction projects and requiring new
facilities install the latest pollution-control technologies.
Every departing president takes advantage of last-minute rule
changes, which have become known as "midnight rules."
They're a way of pushing through policy without worrying about
being blocked by a hostile Congress. Once a rule is changed, the
opportunity for the next administration to reverse it is slim.
Rules must be published in the Federal Register and usually
require about 30 to 60 days before they can take effect. So there
is a lot of scrambling going on and effort being spent among
administration officials to push the changes through. :
In the Keys, we've been waiting on Bush for months to sim-
ply make his secretary of commerce provide a signature to veto
a closure of the grouper fishery in federal waters from Jan. 1
through April 30.
The closure, ordered by the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council, is. based on outdated science and it
would do irreparable harm to guides whose bread and butter
those months is taking tourists out to catch grouper.
What angers Keys fishermen so much about the rule is that
it's meant to protect only the gag grouper, which is barely
found here. But the rule includes a ban on red and black
grouper, too, which are species not in danger of overfishing.
If Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez doesn't know how
important his veto is, he should. Keys charter and commercial
fishermen have been screaming from the rooftops for months
now, and U.S.-Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has had several meet-
ings with him urging his signature.
Time is running out, and there's no indication Gutierrez will
act. His silence actually suggests otherwise.
The Bush administration has a well-deserved reputation for
being industry-friendly. The approach is in line with the tradi-
tional conservative hands-off ideology of the Republican party.
So what we don't get is why he can't exert the smallest effort
- a couple of pen strokes to save one of our staple indus-
tries. Few recreational fishermen from up north are going to
spend the time and money to come here if they can't put some
grouper in their coolers.
We're not sure what's left to do to convince Gutierrez to sign
the veto, but flooding his in-box with e-mails can't hurt. His e-
mail address is CGutierrez@doc.gov.

Keys Opinion


It's a no-brainer: Solar energy is the future


EDITOR:
In a recent Keynoter article on the new Florida
Keys Electric Cooperative solar system, comments
reportedly made about the shortcomings of solar
generated electricity need further elaboration.
The co-op has been progressive and proactive
toward solar energy, as exemplified by its support
of a net metering policy and its leadership in
being the first business to install a relatively large
solar-power generating station. For this leader-
ship they are to be applauded.
However, clearly, there still remains a misun-
derstahding about solar energy and its supporting
industry. First, the solar modules, instead of last-
ing for only 15 years, last.twice and maybe three
times that long. To quote the manufacturer of the
panels being installed at the co-op: "Schott solar
PV modules carry 20-year power guarantees and
have a considerably longer life expectancy."
The other expressed concern about the ineffi-
ciency of solar power really is not an indictment
.of solar itself, but rather it is the result of a long-
term neglect of sdlar by our governments, all the
while spending billions and trillions of dollars on
the oil, coal and nuclear industries. To compare
the inefficiencies and costs of solar relative to
these heavily subsidized and mature industries is
equivalent to comparing a developing country to
the U.S. and wondering why they can't be a well
off as we are.


There also is plenty of open space for solar in
the Keys on our home and business rooftops and
parking lots. Development of a distributed net-
work of power generation throughout the Keys
would strengthen the reliability our island grids.
Such an investment also would be good for our
communities and economy.
Maybe the utilities could consider, rather than
spending millions to produce their own power,
use that money to provide rebates, low-interest
loans,-feed in tariffs, or simply buy the renewable
energy credits from homeowners and businesses
from on-site solar power.
Now that the solar genie has escaped, it has
become a rapidly developing and growing indus-
try that is creating new jobs every day and help-
ing to reduce the magnitude of global warming.
And it does all this while providing noise-free,
pollution-free electricity without the continued
use of fossil fuels.
Clearly, the issue is not just about today's
energy prices and how expensive solar is to coal;
it is about tomorrow's relative prices and the
quality of life we want for our children and
grandchildren and our obligation to this Earth
that has made our existence possible.

Keys Opinion


Sadly, we're not all still equal


EDITOR:
The results of the election left
many of us.elated and confused. Just
when we reach the milestone of equal
rights in America, it is snatched away
from another segment of American cit-
izens. It almost seems that we are des-
tined to always keep some segment of
our citizens in a state of "most rights"
but not full rights of citizenship.
I was brought up to believe that all
men are created equal, and a group of
white-wig-wearing white men had
decided that this idea would be part
of the foundation of a new country
they called America. While we've
never been the perfect society that
treats everyone equally, this ideal of
our forefathers'has been used to free
our citizens from slavery and later
give them the legal access to equal .
rights. It has been used to give
women the right to vote, and some
equality in college sports. For these
people, it has been very useful, but
still could go further.


I was very saddened on Nov. 4 to
find that the citizens of Florida, and
some other states, had actually decided
,to amend our state Constitution to deny
some citizens a basic right. They will
not be allowed to marry in Florida. The
heinous crime that caused this action to
be taken? They are homosexuals, and
for some strange reason many hetero-
sexual couples believe that allowing
these people to mary will destroy their
own marriages.
My wife and I cannot fathom how
this logic was formed. We have many
gay friends and the only regret about
our marriage is that we didn't find each
other until we were in our 50s, unlike
two men we know that have been in a
loving relationship for over 25 years.
It's time we go back to the words
of our founding fathers "All men
are created equal" and allow all
Americans to benefit from this cor-
nerstone of our great country.

There's still time to reverse grouper closure


EDITOR:
While the proposed Jan. 1, through
April 30, 2009, closure on grouper
fishing is indeed imminent, it is by no
means a foregone conclusion. In fact,
now is the most important timeframe
for interested parties to voice their
concern about it by writing to
Secretary of Commerce Carlos
Gutierrez (cgutierrez@doc.gov) and
Duane Harris (seageorg@bellsouth
.net), chairman of the South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council,
I was a participant in the telecon-
ference call with the secretary, repre-
senting the Islamorada Charter Boat
Association and for-hire fishermen,
along with Scott Zimmerman, execu-
tive director of the Florida Keys
Commercial Fishermen's Association;
Andy Griffiths of Key West; and U.S.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, responsible
for arranging the teleconference call.
The looming closure is based on a
catch/curve analysis dating back to
2001 and beyond and does not repre-
sent the best available science or even
an acceptable stock assessment by
today's standards. A new stock assess-
ment on black grouper is scheduled
for June 2009. Many individuals,
including marine scientists, think it is
absurd for the council to be taking
such stringent action based on reports
eight years old or older instead of
waiting for the new assessment.
Ros-Lehtinen, along with Mark
Robson of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission,
South Atlantic council member Tony
larocci of Marathon and industry rep-
resentatives have been working dili-


gently with the secretary and the
council to amend the proposed
grouper closure to include gag
grouper only, a species known to be
under heavy fishing pressure. There is
no assessment on any of the other
species listed in the suggested closure
known as an interim rule.
If the secretary or the council takes
action to amend the interim rule, it
will not happen until after the South
Atlantic council meets the first week
in December in Wilmington, N.C.,
and gives final approval to their man-
agement plan. That is why your com-
ments are needed now.
It is regrettable that the council has
resorted to such a devastating position
on this issue. A grouper closure of this
magnitude will cause significant
financial hardship to all user groups
- commercial, for-hire and recre-
ational fishermen. It's designed to
protect gag grouper, a species that
represents less than 2 percent of the
total grouper harvest in South Florida
and Monroe County.
Collectively, we have offered a
one-year moratorium on the harvest of
gag grouper in Monroe County and
recommended a reduction in harvest
of all grouper from five fish per per-
son per day to two, only one of which
could be a black or red grouper and
none of which could be a gag.
Unfortunately, the council rebuffed
this proposal, even though Monroe
County has been designated as a
regional management zone for both
grouper and snapper.

Board members must

ask essential questions


I felt compelled to write a rebuttal to
School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths'
recent piece in the Keynoter. Mr.
Griffiths notes that certain members of -
the School Board, including myself,.
have attempted to "micromanage" the
superintendent and his staff with certain
questions we have asked or information
we have requested in the course of doing
our jobs as School Board members.
First, I would like to state that phrases
we have used such as "micromanage"
and the retaliatory "rubber-stamp
School Board" are nothing more than
civilized political name calling. I think
this language is beneath our
jobs as School Board mem-
bers and I pledge to stop
using such emotionally
packed phrases. I would hope
my fellow board members
would do the same. .
However, specific to the
phrase "micromanage," I ,
would like to clear up a cou- -
ple of misconceptions. When --
I walk around our schools, I
will pick up a candy wrapper
if I see it on the ground. If I
saw a fight break out in the
hallway, I would break it up.
Obviously, I am neither a Key Wes
custodian nor a school Steve Pri
administrator; I would do waselec
these things to make our Monroe
schools a better, safer place Schoo
for our kids. in 2
When I see something that
does not seem correct I try to
fix it. However if I see something in our
financial statements or a procedure that
the School District follows that does not
make sense to me, an inquiry is inter-
preted as micromanaging.
It should be noted because it rarely
gets reported that after we make these
inquiries and pose our questions, we
almost always approve the superinten-
dent's requests. Mr. Griffiths calls for
more transparency in our board meet-
ings but how can that be achieved if
board members are discouraged from
asking questions and making inquiries?
I was elected to my position based on
a platform that included adding an inde-
pendent accountant to the School Board
who was beholden to no special inter-
ests and who could provide checks and
balances to the system. The overwhelm-
ing majority of our employees are good,
hardworking people. They are dedicated
to helping our kids learn and grow into
young adults. I have said many times
that our teachers are the crown jewels of
our school system.


However, it is inevitable that with
more than 1,200 employees, we will
have a handful of people who are moti-
vated by self interest those who do
not direct every dollar they can to our
kids, those who believe that the rules do
not apply to them and who even believe
it is OK to lie to a School Board mem-
ber. These types of actions have gone
on far too long.
I believe that it is my job to protect
the interest of our kids and our taxpay-
ers, and when I see something that does
not seem correct or something that does
not make sense to me, I will ask ques-
tions to ensure that every-
thing in being handled in the
i proper manner.
S I would like to make one
final comment about leading
through policy. I am all for
that method of leadership. In
S my two years on the School
Board I have proposed many
policy changes. I proposed
and we implemented a dis-
closure affidavit be complet-
ed with every vendor con-
tract so that the public, the
_ press and the School Board
understand any prior or
t resident existing personal or business
bramsky relationship that a vendor
ted to the may have with a School
County District employee.
I Board We enacted my policy
006. requiring our financial state-
ments be made available
within 30 day of the close of
the prior month so that we have timely
financial information. We approved
board member John Dick's policy
requiring the staff to have out-of-coun-
try travel approved by the School
Board. I, along with board member
Duncan Mathewson, oversaw the imple-
mentation of the anti-politicking policy
on school grounds.
Board member Debra Walker and I
advocated for the policy changes that
created the biodiesel program at Key
West High and finally, Mr. Dick and I
put forth policy changes regarding the
elimination of executive salary supple-
ments and executive paid medical insur-
ance benefits.
I would encourage any and all of my
fellow board members to bring forth a
policy change or idea that can better
serve the school district and the School
Board. However, I will never stop ask-
ing questions and making inquiries on
behalf of our children and the taxpayers
of Monroe County.

Commission 1


considers new
land-use zone
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.copm


The state Department of
Community Affairs has approved
an amendment to Monroe
County's comprehensive plan that
could allow for wholesale changes
to the proposed Safe Harbor rede-
velopment on Stock Island.
The Monroe County Com-
mission meets in special session
at 10 -a.m. Wednesday at the
Marathon Government Center to
consider the amendment.
The amendment proposes cre-
ating a new future land-use-map
category specifically for New
Stock Island Properties' proposed
54-acre redevelopment. It would
be called a Deep Port Harbor
District; the current designation
is Maritime Industrial.
If approved by the commis-
sion, New Stock Island could
conceivably build as many as 800
hotel rooms and 300 affordable
housing units, in addition to


52,000 square feet of commercial
space. Initial plans were for
around 300 hotel rooms.
New Stock Island would Still
have to go through the county's
permitting process.
Stock island resident and
newly elected County Com-
missioner Kim Wigington said
she was shocked DCA approved.
the amendment.:
"I would really like to go back
to the drawing board on this one.
I would love to see redevelop-
ment on Safe Harbor; I think it's
a prime area, but this is not the
vehicle for it," she said.
Wigington listed several con-
cerns with the project, including
the size and number of proposed
rooms, the amount of commercial
space and where New Stock
Island would secure so many
building rights.
"The fact that their [proposed]
hotel rooms are 1,700 square feet,
three bedrooms and no 30-day
limit like the rest of our hotel
rooms if you can stay in them
for 365 days and they're twice the
size of most houses down here,
that's not a hotel room," she said.
As for the building rights,
Wigingtor said, "If I lived in a
mobile home park I wouldn't feel
comfortable. They could buy up
some RV parks and use the units."
In a memo to County
Administrator Roman Gastesi,
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette says the New
Stock Island development is
modeled after the city of
Marathon's hotel/motel ordi-
nance passed in 2005.
The ordinance allows hotel
rooms to be redeveloped as
1,500-square-foot suites with
three bedrooms and two bath-

California group
to sue over corals

The Center for Biological

The federal government plans
to designate almost 3,000 square


miles of reef area off Florida,
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin

rooms. The result was mom-and-
pop motels and trailer park own-
ers selling out to developers and a
wave of high-end agreements
approved to remodel them. Little
to no progress has been made on
many of those agreements.
Another important issue,
Wigington said, is an exception
in the amendment to the county's
height restriction of 35 feet..The
developer would like height to be
measured "from the base flood
elevation for projects proposed
with the Deep Port Harbor
FLUM category," essentially
allowing the construction of 43-
to 49-foot buildings.
"Most people hold dear that
restriction. They feel they have a
hold on development and the
character of their community,"
Wigington said.
The amendment is the result
of a controversial February
approval by the commission
allowing revisions written by
local attorneys working for New
Stock Island to be added to a
newly revised waterfront ordi-
nance. Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro, along with then-com-
missioners Sonny McCoy- and
Dixie Spehar, voted to add the
language despite not reading it
before voting.,
"It was insanity how we ended
up where we are today and it's
going to take awhile to digest the
potential'and unintentional" out-
comes," Mayor George Neugent
said.
Di Gennaro said he also has
issues with the project as pro-
posed.
"The marina will always be
protected for life, that's what I do
like," he said. "I've got concerns
about the density and the height
limit. The way it is right now will
not be successful."

Black Friday
brings out the
bargain hunters
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

It wasn't quite the scene
like at the Sawgrass Mills mall
in Sunrise in Broward County;
where shoppers lined up
Thursday night waiting for the
store doors to open at mid-
night.
But on Friday, Keys shop-
pers joined the Black Friday
masses and searched for deals
while also watching their wal-
lets.
. Bargain hunters lined up at
Sears in Key West before 5
a.m. Friday to up their odds of
finding the perfect gift at the'
right price.
Store Manager Marc
Grossman was busy running
from register to register pick-
ing up drawers of cash and
ensuring the lines were man-
aged smoothly.
"The crowds came running
in," said Grossman, who was
on hand when the doors
opened. Sears had several
door-buster sales, particular
on large and small appliances.
"Lots of tools," Grossman
said. "Appliances have been
great like deep fryers and cof-
fee pots, .but big appliances
have done well."


Grossman said he didn't see
shoppers dissuaded from
reaching into their over-
extended wallets, even with
the economic downturn.
"It's been a very good day,"
Grossman said. "No com-
plaints. Better than last year."
"There are some bargains,

hunt but then

Max; the store opened at 7

usual.
"There was a pretty good
crowd waiting," sales associ-
ate Johnny Gonzalez said,
estimating almost 60 people.
Office Max discounted
popular electronics items like
laptop computers and digital
cameras.
At Office Max, shopper
Mary Donald said .shopping
the day after Thanksgiving
was originally about finding a
deal, but has changed into
something more meaningful.
"I've been doing it for
years," she said. "It started as
a bargain hunt but then it
became a tradition. It's a fun
thing to do with the family."
Donald said the economic
slowdown didn't affect her
spending: "We bought quite a
bit today, actually."
SDonald even has a strategy
that offsets the hectic pace and
line-waiting.
"I don't mind the crowds at
all," she said knowingly. "I get
out so early I beat the
crowds."


there really are," shopper Liz
Richards said. "That's what I
went for."
"People are thinking,
maybe we should buy now
because we might not be able
to afford this later in the year,"
Grossman said.

Missing boater
is rescued Friday

A missing boater was res-
cued Friday morning after his
vessel was found running with
no one aboard three miles
north of Grassy Key.
The U.S. Coast Guard did-
n't release the 30-year-old
man's name.
The Coast Guard says it
received a call around 8:45
a.m. from a boater reporting a
6-foot Carolina Skiff that was
still running but had no one on
board. The Guard sent two
small boats from Station
Marathon and a search-and-
rescue helicopter from Air
Station Miami to search.


Crew aboard one of the
Coast Guard boats found a
backpack, keys and a wallet
with identification from the
missing boat, and the boat.reg-
istration matched the, identifi-
cation found.
The Coast Guard contacted
the missing man's wife and
learned he was fishing in the
area alone, departed at 7:30
a.m. and was supposed to be
back by 10:30.
Shortly after talking to the
wife, the Coast Guard found
the man around 10:20 a.m. on
Channel Key, two miles south-
east of where- the boat was
originally reported. It turns
out he had slipped overboard
and became separated from
his boat.

City defers hybrid car purchases

The city of Marathon will add
three autos to its fleet next year
- just not the eco-friendly
hybrids originally budgeted for.
Instead of purchasing three

Manager Clyde Burnett chose to
accept three vehicles from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
- two Ford Crown Victorias and
a Ford F-150-at a cost of $10,000.
"We were going to expend
[$77,826] on three vehicles and
nobody was aware in the city that
we were able to grab the sheriff's
cars once they trade them in. The
city's already paid for them,"
Burnett said.


Burnett added the decision to
accept the vehicles from the
Sheriff's Office was based on
simple economics. He said a
struggling economy and declin-
ing property values will drive
future government decisions.
"We have to start cutting
somewhere," Burnett said. "if it's
not economically a smart thing to
do, you wait until it is and then
decide to go green."
Michael Welber, chairman of
the city's Green Team, an infor-
mal advisory panel, said the

ing with its signing of the U.S.

"Your decision flies in the face

all the city's vehicles are used for.
Burnett prepared the inventory
and presented it to the council

three Sheriff's Office autos to use
and repurposing other vehicles.
According to Burnett's plan,

Record storm season closes The year in storms


The Reporter

In the six-month hurricane
season that ends Sunday, the U.S.
coast took a record number of
consecutive storm hits, while the
Florida Keys dodged potentially
devastating tropical systems.
This season's total (assuming
no new storms) is 16 named
storms, either tropical storms or
hurricanes.
Of the 16, eight were hurri-
.canes and five became major hur-
ricanes of Category 3 or higher
strength, according to the season
report issued by the National
Hurricane Center. A Category 3
has sustained winds of at least
111 mph.
The totals show this was a sea-
son with above-average activity,
according to National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
hurricane researchers. The totals
are also within ranges predicted
by NOAA scientists in their pre-
seasonand mid-season forecasts.


Free parking


Statistics from U.S. hurricane
tracking in the past 60 years show
than the average number of
named storms in a season is 11,
with six hurricanes and two
major hurricanes.
NOAA's August outlook
called for 14 to 18 named storms,
seven to 10 hurricanes and three
to six major hurricanes.
For the first time on record,
six consecutive tropical cyclones
- Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gustav,
Hanna and Ike struck the U.S.
mainland. A record three major
hurricanes Gustav, Ike and
Paloma struck Cuba.
This was also the first Atlantic
season to have Category 3 hurri-
canes form in five consecutive
months, from July to November.

ricane forecaster at the federal
Climate Prediction Center, said
this season was consistent with

'Tis the season to be giving,
and the Key West City
Commission is no exception.
On. Tuesday, commissioners
are expected to approve free pub-
lic transportation on city buses
and the Lower Keys shuttle that
runs from Marathon to Key West,
and free parking at meters in Old
Town Key West.
Free bus service is from Dec.
19 to 24; no service is offered
Christmas Day.
Free parking is good from
Dec. 19 through Dec. 25 at any
metered space in Old Town
excluding the Key West Bight.
The idea is that free parking
would spur local shopping during
the holidays.
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
The commission will vote
on the first reading of an ordi-
nance that would do away with
the Port Advisory Board, which
has advised the commission on
port-related matters and planned
the cruise-ship facilities.
The Port Advisory Board was
originally established as a seven-
member appointed panel that met


quarterly. But for the past two
years, there have been only three
people DeeVon Quirolo, Bill
Grosscup and Tom Milone on it
and their duties have been dimin-
ished due to completed projects.
+ In October, commissioners
approved a bid from Ebsary
Foundation Co. of $661,200 to
construct a floating pedestrian
bridge connecting the Outer Mole
cruise port and the East Quay Wall.
Plans are moving forward as
the commission is expected on
Tuesday to approve an agreement
with Chen and Associates
Consulting Engineers Inc. for
almost $47,000 to act as the city's
oversight agent during the design
and construction process.
The idea behind the bridge is
to provide cruise ship passengers
with direct walking access from
the Outer Mole into the Truman
Waterfront. As it stands, the city
contracts with Historic Tours of
America, to shuttle cruisers, via a
Conch Train, from the port across
Navy property to Clinton Square.
The City Commission meets

User fees
would pay
off a bond
By RYAN McCARTHY

Key Largo resident Howard
Gelbman says purchasing the
old Rowell's Marina at mile
marker 104 is one of that com-
munity'slast chances at securing
public water access.
The problem is he and a
group of Upper Keys citizens
were told by Monroe County
Administrator Roman Gastesi-
that no tax dollars are available
to make the buy.
Gastesi who floated the
idea of purchasing the property
when he was hired in May -
charged the group with finding
an alternative plan.
At the Nov. 19 County
Commission meeting, Gelbman
unveiled a plan to create a recre-
ation district; allowing the coun-
ty to acquire the 8.1-acre lot
through a bond issue and make it
a park without using county
money or property taxes. The
property is in foreclosure and
sits vacant.
"Whatever facilities were in
the park would have a minimum
charge and that money would go
to retire the bond," he said. "It
was done this way to avoid a tax.

We could do that, but the county
is opposed, and I'm opposed
personally, to any more taxes."-
Gastesi admits he "took a lot
of heat" advocating for the pur-
chase, but said Gelbman's alter-
native is a good one.
"That's the kind of thinking
we need in these rough econom-
ic times. We have the communi-
ty coming to us and that's what
we've been asking for," he said,
reiterating a county purchase is
not possible.
"You need the money up
front and once we get the prop-
erty, we feel like we if the
community wants to can put a
vendor or a boat ramp, some
kind of moneymaking enterprise
that would pay back whoever
fronted it," Gastesi said.
SGelbman said he's discovered
two ways to form a recreation


district, through the state
Legislature or by gathering the
signatures of the majority of
people in a designated area.
"We picked the area from
mile marker 92 to 113, which is
the county line. It included
Ocean Reef, because I talked to
them and they were agreeable to
it," he said.
Boca Developers bought the
property in 2005 with the inten-
tion of building 136 high-end
housing units in exchange for
building affordable housing at
the Seahorse RV Park on Big
Pine Key. That proposal to move
building rights, not allowed
under current county law, met
stem opposition from Key Largo
community groups in 2006.
The asking price in June was
$9.75 million. Gastesi plans to
meet with Gelbman's group and
said if their plan is viable he'll
present it to the commission.

EASY RIDERS: Nelson Sanchez and Paul Kupke, marine
patrol deputies for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in
Islamorada, are trying something new: When the weather
isn't conducive to patrolling the water, they're riding bikes

Council keeps
5:30 meeting
start time for now
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Citing lack of input on a
prospective time change, the
Marathon City Council decid-
ed to keep meeting at 5:30
p.m. for now.
"I don't think it's broken
and I don't think we should try
to fix it," Vice Mayor Don
Vasil said."
The council meets the sec-
ond and fourth Tuesdays of
each month. Vasil suggested
the meetings be moved up
from 6:30 p.m. when he and
Mayor Mike Cinque were
elected in 2007.
"Residents would stick
around and leave not being


able to speak early. The main
objective was to move the.cit-
izens' comments to a fixed
time and that has worked out
well," Vasil said. The council
voted several months ago to
move citizens' comments to
6:30 p.m.
Cinque said he felt the 5:30
p.m. time has worked well,
noting the council will move
agenda items around to
accommodate the public.
"I'm happy with the way it
is," he said. "In 20 months
I've had one gentleman
unhappy with the time."
Councilman Pete Worthington
proposed the time change
Tuesday and said the issue had
come up at times while cam-
paigning this fall. He said it's
difficult for working people to
make it to the meetings right
after work.


"I'm looking in the audi-
ence and we have six 'people
here. We have to do something
to get the public more
involved," Worthington said.
Councilman Dick Ramsay
said he favored leaving the
time as is because he'd
received no public input on
the issue.
"If there is an outpour of sup-
port to move this to 6:30 p.m.,
we can do that in the future, but
right now we can leave it where
it is," Ramsay said.
Councilwoman Ginger
Snead agreed, telling the pub-
lic, "Now that we've brought
it up as a discussion item, if
you're interested in changing
it, let us know."

sewer fir

Hazen, Sawyer
hired to guide
construction
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The Islamorada Village
Council has approved a $550,000
initial contract with Hazen and
Sawyer of New York to be
Islamorada's sewer engineer.
The total price paid to the firm
could reach several million:dol-
Jars as Hazen and Sawyer guides
the village through the multi-year
effort to install sewers pipes and
plants throughout its islands.
"This represents the end of
one process and the beginning of
another one," said Village
Manager Ken Fields, who has
made. moving forward with sew-
ers his top priority since being
hired in March.
Hazen and Sawyer was nomi-
nated from a group of 16 firms
that was narrowed to seven.
Those interviewed with the
finance and utilities departments'
staff. Hazen and Sawyer was
chosen Nov. 20.
Hazen and Sawyer has offices
in 14 states and in Colombia. The
firm also has a regional office in
Hollywood, which Fields said he
contracted with during his tenure
as that Broward County ,city's
assistant manager.
Fields lauded the firm's
expertise with South Florida
sewer projects, particularly vacu-
um systems often used in the
Keys and currently used in
Islamorada's North Plantation
Key sewer system.
However, the myriad of prob-
lems that occurred during the
construction and upkeep of that
system including sewage
backups into homes and a drawn-
out legal battle with the system
builder to finish the project -
seemed fresh in the council's
mind as they grilled Hazen and
Sawyer representatives.
"There's a long list of engi-
neers" in the contract,
Councilman Dave Boerer said.
"My concern is who is going to
be here?"
Hazen Vice Present Damann
Anderson and senior associate
Dan Burden, who are based in


m


Hollywood, said they will be the
company's.faces in the Keys, and.
the firm will eventually open an
office in Islamorada to handle
village and public questions and
concerns.
"I'll bet you I'm not moving
to Islamorada," Anderson said.
"But when this thing gets rolling,
we'll probably be here three or
four days a week, maybe more."
Burden said he often spent six
days each-week in Sarasota as the
firm completed a wastewater sys-
tem similar to one planned in
Islamorada.


Hazen and
Sawyer was
nominated
from a group
of 16 firms that
was narrowed
to seven.


He said one of the biggest
engineering challenges in
Sarasota was locating and pur-
chasing vacant property for the
vacuum pump stations that pro-
vide the suction needed for the
system to work, and it would
likely be one of the biggest chal-
lenges in Islamorada as well.
Fields said the firm's first task
will be to create a detailed work
plan with a three-year design
schedule as well as a financial
plan that includes total cash flow
needed as stages of the system are
designed, built and brought online.
The estimated cost of the sys-
tem is $120 million to $150
million.
Councilman Michael Reckwerdt
reminded Fields, Utilities Director
Myles Milander and Finance
Director Cindy Lawson to keep a
watchful eye on Hazen and.
Sawyer's billing and hold the firm
accountable.
"The primary responsibility
for watching the billing is yours,"
he said. "You've got to keep
checking it on a regular basis."

Ordinances proposed by
Marathon Mayor Mike. Cinque
that would have made terms
on the Planning Commission
and Code Compliance Board
coincide with a council mem-
ber's time in office were shot
down at Tuesday's regular
council meeting.
"I sponsored these ordi-
nances; I think everyone
knows," Cinque joked, aware
of the controversy the propos-
al caused leading up to the
meeting. "The intention was
simply to get these boards to
mirror the council. I think it's
important that the new council
people's voices are.heard."
Cinque said the winner in -a
presidential election is
allowed to "bring people of
his like philosophy on board"
and feels it should be the same
at the city level. He also dis-


NOTICE OF INTENT TO USE UNIFORM METHOD
OF COLLECTING NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENTS

The Board of County Commissioners of Monroe County, Florida ("the County") hereby provides
notice, pursuant to Section 197.3632(3)(a), Florida Statutes, of its intent to use the uniform method
of collecting non-ad valorem special assessments, for the cost of providing certain wastewater cap-
ital improvements and connections, to be levied within the unincorporated area of Monroe County
encompassing the Key Haven, Lower Sugarloaf through Big Pine Keys, No Name Key and
Long Key for the fiscal year beginning on October 1,2009 and continuing each year until discon-
tinued by the County. The County will consider the adoption of a resolution electing to use the uni-
form method of collecting such assessments authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes, at
a public hearing to be held at 5:01 p.m. on December 17,2008 in the Commission Chambers,
Marathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas Highway, Mile Marker 50, Marathon, FL.
Such resolution will state the need for the levy and will contain a legal description of the bound-
aries of the real property subject to the levy. All interested persons are invited to attend.

Pursuant to Section 286.0105, Florida Statutes, notice is given that if a person decides to appeal
any decision made by the Board with respect to any matter'onsidered at such hearings or meet-
ings, he will need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he may need to ensure
That a verbatim record of the.proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evi-
dence upon which the appeal is to be based.

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, persons needing a special accommodation
or an interpreter to participate in this proceeding should contact the County Administrator's Office
by phoning (305) 292-4441 no later than seven (7) days prior to the date of the hearing.

pulled rumors that the pro-
posed ordinances were an
attempt to immediately
replace current members of
both the Planning Commission
and Code Board.
"If it passes, all it will
affect is when the terms come
due. Most of them are my
friends and I have the greatest
thanks to them for their serv-
ice," Cinque said.
Councilman Pete Worthington
said that if passed, the ordinances
would lead to excessive turnover
on both boards.
"We need to have some
retention of knowledge on the
Issues. To me it seems like it's
becoming a political appoint-
ment," he said.
Vice Mayor Don Vasil said
he felt the intent of the city's
"framers" of which Cinque
is one was to avoid having
the boards be political entities.
"There are pros and cons to
each method, but if.we look at
the effectiveness of them over
the last year, they've been a
benefit to the city and they've
performed admirably,". Vasil
said.
John Bartus, a former
mayor of Marathon, also said
the intent is to keep politics
off the two boards.

current with council members'
terms so there would be some
continuity on the boards. That
helps keep the politics out,"
Bartus said.
Cinque disagreed, saying
an appointment avoids a "mini
election" process that some
candidates don't want to go
through.
Councilwoman Ginger
Snead said she disagreed with
members of either board being
removed "at the whim of a
council member."
Cinque motioned to
approve each of the motions
and each died for lack of a
second.

Planning Commission mem-
bers and when their terms
expire:

On the oceanside of the Seven

The Southernmost Hotel
Collection has just finished a
massive renovation on its
Southernmost on the Beach prop-
erty with the additiori of 80 new
luxury guest rooms and a top-to-


bottom upgrade on landscaping
and amenities.
But.don't be fooled by the tag
"luxury;" the Southernmost
Collection offers a variety of top-
notch accommodations for a vari-
ety of budgets.
"It's the value," sales manager
Lisa Malcolm said. "I feel strong-
ly about'that. We care what we
can do for the guest, not what the
guest can do for us."
The construction of the 80


new rooms, opening their doors
on Monday, brings the total to
127 for Southernmost on the
Beach all with an ocean view.
Rooms at the Southernmost
on the Beach go for around $300
per night in season, depending on
the specific type of room.
The property, situated on the
Atlantic end of Duval Street,

'Something for everyone'


SOUTHERNMOST / From 17

Hotel geared more toward revel-
ing on Duval than resting and
relaxing in a tropical setting.
The addition of new rooms
isn't the only change for
Southernmost. A drastic renova-
tion of the grounds resulted 'in
luxurious hammocks situated
oceanside, a hew tiki bar, lush
plantings and plans for bocci ball
courts.
"We're keeping the name with
an all new experience," Malcolm
said. "We have something for
everyone."
A major feature, of the new
landscaping is 40 giant palm trees
that were removed from the for-
mer Atlantic Shores property and
nursed to health in Homestead,
prior to being replanted at the
site.
Steps like carefully preserving
the native palms make it clear
why the Southernmost Collection
was selected by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection as the largest inde-
pendent green lodging facility in
South Florida.

which formerly occupied the
property, closed its doors on May
31, 2007. It was a popular gay-
friendly destination widely
known for Thursday night
movies, Sunday tea dances and
clothing-optional sunbathing.
Key West-based New Moon
Management undertook the
development and President
Michael Browning struggled
with improving the property
while maintaining community
relations.
"We are a victim of Key West
success," he said. "Nobody wants
to be labeled a developer, but we
have-to improve our product if
we want to remain competitive in
this market. We're doing our best
to bring something to Key West
that doesn't invite resistance."


New Moon initially planned
to redevelop Atlantic Shores into
luxury condos but those plans
were kyboshed by community
criticism and a lawsuit from
neighbors over the design.
After a year of no movement
or progress on the condo front,
the owners opted to redesign the
property as a hotel.
"We went back to [the city's
Historical Architectural Review
Commission] and got their ideas
for what might be more appropri-
ate," Browning said. "We want to
be good neighbors and enhance
Key West. What we've come up
with is even more typical of what
is found in the historic district of
town than the kind of South
Beach, art deco design of Atlantic
Shores."

"Cooking is the most sim-

"All is needed is ingredients and

taste, and that's needed."
He also stressed the impor-

COOKING / From 19

As Solomon cooked,
Sonnenschmidt laid out the six
primary aspects of cooking as
he sees them: Fundamentals,
passion, common sense, aroma
- which apparently can be "so
powerful that people can actu-
ally kill without remorse" -
eye appeal and taste.
"Every chef worries about
the taste," said Sonnenschmidt,
but "with aroma and eye
appeal, you've already made up
your mind."
The Key West High School
culinary program is part of the
ProStart program operated by


the National- Restaurant
Education Foundation, which
follows a curriculum leading up.
to a certification that gives stu-
dents a leg up in future educa-
tion or employment in the culi-
nary industry.
So far, Ryan Shapiro,
Chelsey Reid, Ashleigh
Wintermyer, Traci Howanitz

received the ProStart designa-
tion.

group donates
to Switlik
The Islamorada Fishing and
Conservation Trust has helped
ingrain the Keys' fishing culture
to Stanley Switlik Elementary
School students in Marathon
once again with the donation of
145 rods, reels and spools of line.
In 2007, the trust donated 40
rods and reels, which primed the
formation of the school's Rod
Benders Club:
Through the volunteer time
of teacher Steve Ferrise, Kirk
Metzler and other supporters,
the school recently requested a
donation of another 250 rods and
reels from the trust. The remain-
ing 105 rods and reels will be


delivered early next year with
the help of a grant to the trust
from the Fishing Foundation for
Responsible Angling.
The trust "is pleased to make
this donation because the kids
are not only receiving equip-
ment, but education and atten-
tion from dedicated volunteers.
We are super impressed with
Steve and his commitment to
teaching kids responsible fish-
ing," said Jim Trice, represent-
ing the trust.
"We have about 450 students
with 60 percent of them on free
and reduced lunch. Our target is
to get about 250 rods and reels in
the hands of our kids and help
them become fishing stewards
of the great Florida Keys,"
Ferrise said.

stand with local dignitaries will
be located.
Cash awards and prizes total
more than $20,500 in value. All

Nutcracker Key West 2008

Clara dreams of gypsy chickens and salt ponds in this fantastical annual production


By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


Nutcracker Key West
transports you. Not up
and out of the Florida
Keys, but right down the street
to Old Town. Which is strange
because you might have just left
there to come to the Tennessee
Williams Theatre.
Yes, Joyce Stahl's variation
on Tchaikovsky's classic
"Nutcracker" requires some
mental adjustment, to properly
place things in a way that they
make sense, and to adjust to the
change in storyline.
There is no snow in
Nutcracker Key West, only
ocean. And although there's a
girl named Clara, and a
Drosselmeyer, there's a Sea Star
Fairy in place of the Sugar Plum
Fairy. And the set shows us a
white gingerbread fence with
palm trees gently leaning this
way and that, and the corer of a
wrecked ship named the
Atoeshu.
"Nutcracker Key West" was
written by Joyce Stahl, who
thought up the idea for the pro-
duction with one of her daughters.
"We had a glass of wine and
started thinking about what it
would be to do a Key West
Nutcracker," she said last week in
between directing seamstresses in
her Pilates studio behind her
Eaton Street home in Key West.
The studio has become a fac-
tory, and women are busy there
sewing cuffs on jackets, and
making the last adjustments to
the costumes designed by Stahl
from fabric purchased in
Manhattan's garment district.
A number of the parts in the

production are danced by profes-
sional ballet dancers on loan
from ballet companies. Several
have come from the Louisville
Ballet where "Nutcracker Key
West" choreographer Alun Jones
was artistic director from 1978
until 2002.
The curtain opens to
Tchaikovsky's music,and in the
first scene we see guests admir-
ing the Key West sunset as they
walk to Mayor Patterson's home
for a grand garden party. It is
Christmas Eve, 1861 and the
widow and her daughter, and
Rear Admiral Cornelius
Stribbling and his family are on
their way to a party at the
mayor's home. The family's old-'
est daughter, Clara (played by
Marliese DeMauro and Claire
Young) and her brother Fritz
(Robbie Feldman and Alan
DeMier) are excited and peek
through the fence into the garden
where final decorations are being
added to the Christmas tree.
In the home, guests arrive,
including Clara's Godfather,
Councilor Drosselmeyer, a magi-
cal inventor, and his nephew,
who takes a special interest in
Clara. Drosselmeyer entertains
the children with mechanical
dolls, and gives Clara a special
gift of a giant Conch shell. Fritz
is jealous and chases Clara,
snatching the shell from her
hands and throwing it to the
ground where it breaks.
Drosselmeyer mends the shell
with a handkerchief and the
party resumes. After dancing and
gift giving the guests depart.
Last to leave is Councilor
Drosselmeyer and his nephew
who gives Clara her first kiss.
At midnight, everyone is
sleeping but Clara, who remem-
bers she has left the shell in the
garden and returns to fetch it.

Barbra Streisand, The Beatles,
Stones, B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix,
Bob Dylan. I became a fan of all
kinds of good music and the
emotion it can capture."
At age 12, Bill got his first
guitar and began to play folk
music and bluegrass on the
reservation, as well as taking up
the Native American flute,
which he came to master.
Miller's big break came when
Tori Amos asked him to be her
opening act on the Under The
Pink U.S. and Canadian tour.
Miller's first masterpiece, the
1999 album, Ghost Dance, won
five Native American Music
Awards, including Artist of the
Year and Album of the Year. He

since.
