wants $4.2M in

By RYAN McCARTHY.
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Monroe County has some
hometown competition in the
race to secure $7.5 million worth
of state Florida Forever funds.
The money is allocated
through the Stan Mayfield
Working Waterfronts program.
Mayfield, a state representative
who died while in office Sept.
30, sponsored a bill aimed at
using Florida Forever money,
normally used to acquire envi-
ronmentally sensitive land, to
acquire working waterfront prop-
erty. .
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.
When the application process
closed last week, the county was
one of 12 applicants. It wants the

owner WSG Sand Lake L.P. will

$12 million, according to the
county.
But another applicant under
the name of the Gulf Fisherman's
Association applied for $4.2 mil-
lion: Their project is titled Key

DOT holds hearing tonight


Expect cuts
from agency's
5-year plan
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

As expected, planned
repairs to the old Seven Mile
Bridge will be off the table
when the state Department of
Transportation presents its ten-
tative five-year Keys work
plan tonight in Marathon.
DOT district work program
administrator Linda Johnson
said soaring gas prices -
before they dropped the past
two months - have led to less
consumption and thus fewer
dollars for construction. That
makes the 2.2-mile span off of
Marathon leading to historic
Pigeon KeN less of a priority.
SThe bridge itself it not anr
arterial hfghavay. It's baskcal
Sa 2.,nile bridge replaced in
ih'e' 60s % ith,the new Seven
SMile 'Bridge The funding ue


have available we have to con-
centrate on'. the arterial sys-
tem," Johnson said. "We
understand the historical
preservation need for that, but
when it's a statewide program
it's difficult to prioritize it."
The bulk of DOT's revenue
is derived from gas taxes based
on a fixed number of cents per
gallon. That means revenue is
based on volume consumed
and not the price of gasoline'.
"At our last revenue esti-
mating conference held in
early November, from fiscal
years '08-'09 through '13-'14,
statewide the DOT lost in
excess of $2.1 billion,"
Johnson said, adding the losses
are based on both projections
and current revenues.
Johnson said in District 6,
which includes both Monroe
and Miami-Dade counties,
losses are $142 million over
that period. Each year's work
plan is typically between $2
billion and $3 billion !'


The only bright spot con-
cerning the bridge appears to
be that DOT will be funding a
ferry service to Pigeon Key for
an additional three years. The
ferry service is run by Paradise
Divers. Inc. of Big Pine Key
and launches from the Knights
Key Campground.
The county received a
$750,000 grant from DOT to
fund the ferry for up to three
years in 2007 and the County
Commission in November
approved the second of four
possible six-month extensions.
Johnson said the same amount
has been pledged for three
years starting in fiscal year
2008-09.
Other projects the DOT will
discuss tonight: A flexible
pavement reconstruction proj-
ect on North Roosevelt
Boulevard in Key West, the
Dade-Monroe, Express bus
service arid routes to schools.
The DOT meeting is sched-
uled to begin at 6 p.m. tonight
at the Marathon Government
Center.

Fishbusterz, county vie for waterfront funding


WATERFRONT / From, I

application but was unable to
comment Tuesday about specifics
of what he wants to do.
He did say, though, that "we
have a commercial fishing
business and we're on the
waterfront."
Ken Reecy, program man-
ager for the Florida
Communities Trust, which
administers the grant money,
said Fishbusterz has applied to
do. a "less-than-fee" acquisi-,
tion.


"The same owner as cur-
rently owns is would continue
running the business, but basi-
cally there would be develop-
ment restrictions such that it
would have to remain a com-
mercial fishing facility in per-
petuity," Reecy said.
Gulf Seafood is at 6001
Peninsular Ave. on Stock.
Island and is 'zoned mixed-use
commercial. It has room for 75
boats and 100,000 traps.
If purchased, county staff
suggests creating a "facility
management advisory commit-
tee" made up of fishermen and


other designees to manage the
property for the first year. It
would include fishermen who
rent and other designees
appointed by the. commission.
Management services would
be contracted out in year two.
According to the state
Department of Community
Affairs, the 12 applicants
statewide requested a. total of
$28.4 million in funding.
The DCA will evaluate and
rank applications over the next
few weeks. The Florida
Communities Trust convenes
in January to create a project


ranking list. that will be final-
ized in February.
Reecy said a number of cri-
teria will be used to rank the
applicants, including if the
project is adjacent to an aquat-


ic preserve, in a municipality
with fewer than 30,000 resi-
dents, includes a fish house or
commercial fishing docks, or
has all of its permitting.

asked about
recreation
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
.kwadlow@keynoter.com


A survey recently mailed to
about 10,000 people in the
Florida Keys seeks to discover
how we spend our free time.
The survey, from the
University of Massachusetts at
Amherst, is legitimate, said
Karrie Carnes, communications
director for the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
"It's part of a study that fol-
lows up on a similar study from
1995 and 1996," she said. "The
sanctuary and other resource
managers make use the infor-
mation in planning."
David Loomis, the
University of Massachusetts
professor in charge of managing
the project, said those receiving
the 16-page questionnaire
should take advantage of the
survey to highlight their activi-
ties on the water and in natural
areas. .
"The resources of the Florida
Keys are obviously very impor-
tant to those who live in
Monroe County, and this survey
is one way in which people can
participate in how those


resources are managed,"
Loomis said in.a prepared state-
ment.
Bob Leeworthy, the chief
economist for NOAA's Office
of National Marine Sanctuaries,
said, "The study will help the
Keys. municipal and natural
resource planners understand
who their customers are, what
they want, and how satisfied
residents and vacationers are
with what they're receiving."
Leeworthy also was active in
the 1995-96 report, titled
"Linking the Economy and
Environment of the Florida
Keys/Florida Bay." The report
was considered a significant,
element of sanctuary planning.
The Monroe County Tourist
Development Council is active
in the project, which started in
January with random surveys of
visitors to the Keys. The Nature
Conservancy's Florida Keys
Program also backs the project.
"To gather [visitor] data for
the study, surveys of visitors
[were] conducted at more than
200 sites around the Keys," a
program description says. "Data
collection included intermittent-
ly surveying users of Keys air-
ports, port facilities and U.S. 1."
Residents who received the
-mailed survey were selected
entirely at random, Caines said.
The survey is intended to

"provide insight into use of
Keys' recreational and environ-
ment resources, including the
reef system, cultural attractions
and parks."
Individual responses to the
survey - which includes ques-
tions about educational and
income levels - .will be kept
confidential, the.authors said.
. Residents will be asked
whether they believe sanctuary
regulations, including the no-
harvest areas, provide a benefit
to the community.
They also will be asked to
describe the general areas
where they go fishing, boating
or diving, and how often they
do.
The survey authors estimate
the survey can be completed "in
about 15-20 minutes."
Carnes noted that the survey
is not the only way residents
who have concerns about sanc-
tuary management issues can
alert local managers.
"There are many, avenues
open to them, from speaking to
the Sanctuary Advisory Council
members or just picking up the
phone," she said.

Cape Air nearly ready to lift off


Air service
in Marathon
starts Dec. 19
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


S, It won't be quite the scene
Delta Airlines- garnered when it
began air service to Florida Keys
Marathon Airport last year, but
Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton said a
small ceremony is 'planned to
welcome Cape Air to the Middle
Keys.
"It won't be quite that big, but
they're calling for the fire trucks
to give them the salute on the
first flight," he joked.
Horton said the
Massachusetts-based carrier is
on schedule to begin commercial
airline service to Marathon Dec.
19, with plans to fly three times
daily to Fort Myers through mid-
April.
"This is a test to see how it
goes, we have no -commitment
beyond the April date," he said.
The county pulled out all the
stops for Delta in February 2007
- including fire hoses, a jam
band, hundreds of onlookers,
blowing conch shells and a host


of officials. But Delta was gone
just five months later, citing a
runway. too short to allow the
airline to fill planes to capacity.
Delta is one in a long line of
carriers that have attempted to
serve Marathon since 'American
Eagle discontinued flights in
April 2000. US Airways
Express, Com Air, Gulfstream
and Florida Air have all served
the airport at one time.
Cape Air has been. servicing
Key -West International Airport
with flights to Southwest Florida
International Airport in Fort
Myers for more than 15 years.
Horton said that for Marathon,
it's all about supporting the serv-
ice if the city wants a stable air
carrier.
. "They do well in Key West
and they think they'll d6 well in
Marathon. It depends on the
community and tourist industry
supporting it," he said.
According to Cape Air cus-
tomer service representative
Amy Scannell, round-trip fares
from Marathon to Fort Myers
will cost around $225.30. She
said the . fares will fluctuate
depending upon availability.
Flights are scheduled to leave
Marathon at 7 a.m., 1:35 p.m.


Sand 4:10 p.m. each day, with
returning flights from Fort
Myers at 12:20 p.m., 2:55 p.m.
and 6:50 p.m. Cape Air flies
nine-passenger Cessna 402 air-
planes.


On Sept. 17, the County
Commission decided to give
Cape Air a $250,000 revenue
guarantee, without which the
carrier would have walked away.
The final hurdle for Cape Air


was lifted in October when the
U.S. Transportation Safety
Administration gave the OK for
passengers to be. reverse-
screened in Fort Myers.

whether the state should idd its
waters to the closed season.
State waters extend 3 miles
from shore on the Atlantic side in
most of the Keys, though they go
up to 9 miles in some parts off Key
West. Then federal waters begin.
Keys charter fishermen have.
been among the vocal critics of the
plan, since it would close fishing
for the popular food fish in South
Florida's busiest tourism season.
Key West, charter captain
Andy Griffiths called the closure
"the worst of the worst."
Even if state. waters. remain
open to private anglers, any char-
ter boat that has a federal fishing
license will be banned from
catching the grouper species in
state water.
"We're already screwed,"
Griffiths said Monday, referring
to.the charter fleet. ', N it 's up
to. the [recreational] fis 'epTen.
* i '


There may be a lot of snowbirds
upset to learn they can't catch
grouper anywhere."
The closure primarily seeks to
protect gag grouper, a species not
often caught in the Keys. But the
South Atlantic council expanded
it to include red and black
grouper, both to prevent accident -
tal bycatch and because "the best
available science" indicates
blacks and reds "have been expe-
riencing overfishing."
Anglers argue that the science
reports on black and red grouper
are both sketchy and a decade out
of date. -
"We're- very concerned that
the federal councils are making
decisions based on stock assess--
ments that are incorrect," O'Hem
said, citing a study backed by his
group that indicates federal stud-
ies overestimate fish mortality.
Thursday's FWC session starts
at 8:30 a.m.; the grouper issue is
early on the agejida.iGeneral public
comment will be taken at 4:30 p.m.

Stock Island plan

needs a do-over

In the best of times, it would be hard to justify green lighting
an 800-room hotel on Stock Island. In the worst of times, it's
impossible.
Monroe County commissioners meet today to review what
can best be described as a muddled path taken by developers
who hope to amend the county's comprehensive plan to
accommodate their New Stock Island. Properties development.
This requires changes to land use maps, zoning and height
limits and raises- too many questions that critics and others sim-
ply see as. "too much."

along with 800 hotel "suites" of 1,700 square feet adds even
more controversy on top of jeopardizing existing uses as a
working waterfront.
Mayor George Neugent describes the process preceding
today's meeting as "insanity how we ended up where we are
today." We agree.
And it doesn't help when county Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette explains that the new plan is modeled
after Marathon's hotel/motel ordinance, which passed in 2005.
Surely the folks running the county have looked at the unin-
tended consequences of Marathon's ordinance and realize
down that path a few got rich and a lot of others went broke or
were forced to leave the Keys.
SThe Marathon ordinance allowed motel owners to redevelop
their 1950s-era single rooms into suites with up to 1,500 square
feet, three bedrooms and two baths.
Of course, that luxury resort model was built on the condo-
hotel idea of selling off individual units to investor-owners,
who put the units into a rental pool managed by the original
developers and splitting proceeds.
Unfortunately, too many developers had the same idea at the
same time and the landscape is now littered with partially fin-
ished, abandoned and under-performing properties - and not
just in Marathon.
Lessons from that should help county commissioners evalu-
ate the Stock Island proposal, especially the number of hotels
rooms and lack of transient use restrictions.
Commissioner Kim Wigington, a vocal skeptic about the out-
sized scale of this proposal, said she supports redevelopment
on Safe Harbor, but then adds, "This is not the vehicle for it."
Whether the county needs to start over with a blank sheet will
be much debated today. But what's now on the table does noth-
ing to protect working waterfronts and triggers too many ques-
tions with too few answers to proceed as drafted.
The commission meets at 10 a.m. today at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.

We've got what you need in the Keys


EDITOR:
What a bountiful, pre-Thanksgiving comu-
copia of local holiday shopping ideas in the Nov.
23 Keys Sunday.
Of course, I was pleased to see Key Largo-
Chamber of Commerce members Key Largo
Fisheries, Island Smoke Shop, Florida Keys
Jewelry and the Pink Junktique featured.'
But seeing such a diverse sampling of all of
the shopping opportunities available in the
Florida Keys made me think - why shop any-
where else? From clothing to art to entertainment
to jewelry to food to, well, nearly everything -
we've got what you need in the Florida Keys.
Many people take their business to the mainland
or shop online, saying it costs less to do so. Really?
When you factor in the travel time, the expense of
fuel, the interminable standing in line and the
inevitable crush of holiday shoppers, I doubt there
is much saving in money - or aggravation.
And when. it comes to shopping online, the
cost of shipping often can double your purchase
price. If your local retailer doesn't have what you
want, ask him to find it. Chances are he can get it
to you within the same time frame as any online
store, with no additional shipping charge.
But the point of shopping local goes much


Deeper than price or convenience. It's about sup-
porting the community that supports you.
Local businesses, for the most part, hire local
people. These are the folks who struggle, just as
we all do, to clothe their children, put food on the
table and keep a roof over their heads. These
employees have kids who go to the same school
as.your kids, go to the same church as you do.
These people are part of the fabric of our great
and generous community, and doing business
with their employers helps their employees sur-
vive and prosper as well.
But more than even that, local businesses are
what hold our special community together. When
local schools want mentors for students or need
to raise funds for programs and materials, who do
they.go to? Local businesses. Ask
www.amazon.com if it will adopt a classroom
and let me know how that works out.
When local people suffer a catastrophic (and
expensive) illness or accident, who gets hit up for
fundraiser donations? Local businesses. See if
Macy's will give a gift certificate for merchan-
dise after a family's home bums down.
Now it's your turn to return the favor. Shop local.
Jackie Harder, president
Key Largo Chamber of Commerce


Everglades land deal is good for the Keys


EDITOR: ,
Re: the story,-"Bay improvement still years
away," this identifies some of the challenges try-
ing to implement the world's most ambitious eco-
logical restoration project. The time has come to
round the corner, learn from our mistakes and
think big.
A key shortcoming of the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan, passed by Congress
in 2000, was not requiring enough land for water,
storage and treatment, and instead depending on
untested technology. Now we have an opportunity
to re-invigorate this process and move restoration
forward,
Gov. Charlie Crist's announcement to purchase
almost 300 square miles of land in the Everglades
Agricultural Area from U.S. Sugar is monumen-

Don't forget the cats
EDITOR:
Forgotten Felines would like to thank the
Marathon Publix for allowing us to place a dona-
tion bin in its store. The donations received from
our caring community have helped feed approxi-
mately 500 Middle Keys cats daily.
On a recent day, Steve Levine, the Publix
manager, allowed the wonderful volunteers of
Forgotten Felines to bag groceries. The donations
received from generous shoppers will be applied
to our spay and neuter efforts..
During the holiday season, please remember
the Keys' homeless and abandoned cats and our
efforts to give them a healthier life. Donations
can be mailed to PO Box 504426, Marathon, FL

tal. Such an opportunity is rare. With this deal, we
can store, clean and deliver water south to more
effectively rehydrate Everglades National Park'
and Florida Bay, and restore these critical areas
for wildlife habitat and the enjoyment of visitors.
The state also committed to moving forward
with Phase 1 of the C- 111 Spreader Canal project,
to help redirect water flows through Taylor
Slough and into central Florida Bay. The addition-
al water flows from the sugar land acquisition
will only improve this project.
Working together, we can leave a legacy for
our children and grandchildren by saving one of
the great special places in the world - America's
Everglades.

Safe Harbor plans being pushed


EDITOR:
On Nov. 19, we celebrated the
swearing in of our new county com-
missioners. Attendees were'jubilant
and our commissioners respectful of
our concerns. There was an atmos-
phere of civic cooperation, not
authoritative confrontation.
Today, the citizens will face the
last ugly development juggernaut, the
proposed Safe Harbor development.
This is the development that the Gang
of Three approved in less than five
minutes at a County Commission
meeting. supposedly after reading
over 100 pages of deletions and addi-
tions to our comprehensive plan
delivered to them just minutes before
their vote.
*This development, now in Stage 4
of its morphing cycle, is being remar-
keted and apparently the reason for a
proposed new land-use category with-
in our comprehensive plan. This Deep
Port Harbor category, born of devel-
oper New Stock Island Properties'
creative team, is now about to. infect
our county's land-use regulations.
The developer's creative team, in
consultation with the U.S. Navy, state
-Department of Community Affairs


and our own growth management
director, have added or changed more
than 400 lines of present language
within our comprehensive plan. These
changes do not benefit the environ-
ment, the citizens, the birds, the fish
or the residents of Stock Island.
These changes only benefit the devel-
opers and their high-priced creative
team.
-I can only offer an opinion
because the developers have refused
to offer the public any insight:into
what they are actually planning. Why
don't they rent a room and allow the
public to ask questions? They are
playing by the old rules.
Vague language, suspect terms and
plenty of freebies permeate this
unholy doctrine. This potential disas-
ter is not specific to Stock Island resi-
dents.

Editor's note: Naval Air Station
Key West spokesman Jim Brooks said
the Navy doesn't support the current
plans due to the proposed significant
increases in residential density.


Ceremony brings newfound respect


EDITOR:
. Never having been an ardent sup-
porter of the military industrial com-
plex or a member of the armed forces,
I approached my participation in the
-U.S. Marine Corps birthday celebra-
tion with some skepticism. However,
upon my arrival at American Legion
Post 333 in Key Largo where the fes-
tivities took place, I was immediately
put at ease by the Marines who had
assembled there.
I was profoundly moved by the
positive energy radiating through
them. It was contagious and created
an aura that electrified the room. John
Donnelly, the Marine who served as
master of ceremonies, was awesome.
He delivered an ardent and breathtak-
ing description of the courageous
efforts that Sheriff Rick Roth and the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office had
put forth in rescuing a community that
had been devoured by violent crime.
For that action, Sheriff Roth was later
given a lifetime achievement award.
Donnelly brought out a drum and
bugle detail from our high school and
drilled them through their sequences,
which culminated in their impressive
rendition of "Taps." Marine Norm
Higgins read the birthday message
from the commandant of the Marine
Corps and gave the account of the
actions of a Marine that led fo him
being awarded the Medal of Honor.
Mr. Higgins' spirited presentation was


magnificent.
Two ladies, Barbara and Gloria (I
can't remember their last names), con-
tributed to this celebration in a spec-
tacular manner. Barbara read one of
the most beautiful poems I've ever
heard and Claudia spoke of her heroic
and unending efforts (her son is in
Iraq serving with the Marines) in put-
ting forth care packages for those
serving overseas. A Marine named
Russ came forward and told of how
his sergeant from 40 years. ago, whom
he had named his son after, contacted
him while in the Keys; they recently
spent the day fishing. He then led the
gathering in a 21-bell salute to honor
their fallen comrades.
The Marine Corps hymn was
played as the oldest and youngest
Marines grabbed hold of a saber and
cut their birthday cake. The wide
assortment of food they made avAil-
able for their guests was enormously
delicious.
Linda provided two rotisserie dish-
es and Paul Bean, the Publix manager
in Key Largo, donated two beautifully
arranged platters.
I think I have come to understand a
little more about what their motto
"Semper Fidelis" ("Always Faithful")
means. I will never forget the events
of the evening, afid I will forever cher-
ish the company of'the Marines I met:

Global warming


is hardly a jot

Here's a good one. Maybe you've
heard it.
A guy comes to the city of Marathon
and says, "I-have a used car and you
can have it for virtually nothing."
"How many miles does the car have
on it?"
"91,000."
"Well, what kind of gas mileage does
it get?" -
"15 mpg in the city."
"15 mpg and 9l,000 miles? Great,
we'll take it."
OK, it's not that funny. Especially if
you're at all worried about
climate change.
While the current financial -
crisis is very serious and is
bound to get worse next year,
the most pressing challenge
the world faces is climate
change. In two or three years, ...
the financial crisis will pass.
In two or three years, it
might be too late to forestall
the catastrophes that will
result as the earth warms.
Some people say they don't
see any evidence of global
warming. Michael

California has been devastated by
fires, areas of the country are still suf-
fering from severe droughts, and
October was the second hottest October
in recorded history.
Two years ago, the Marathon City
Council- adopted the U,S. Mayor's
Climate Protection Agreement. Doing
so committed Marathon to reducing its
contribution to global climate change by
taking local action to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions to 15 percent below 2005
levels by 2015. The council recognized
that the effects of global climate change
will have a very local impact in the
,Florida Keys.
Last year, a group of us formed a local
"Z"green team" to audit the city's energy


usage. Based on that information, our
team made a list of recommendations
involving very easy and inexpensive
ways of reducing energy consumption.
The city has taken some-of these steps:
Turning off lights in empty rooms,
printing on both sides of the paper, turn-
ing up the thermostat in the City Hall
trailers at night and encouraging recy-
cling.
However, gasoline usage and the con-
sequent carbon dioxide emissions form
a large component of the city's energy
usage. Our team recommended that
-when city cars were
replaced, Marathon should
. .l purchase high gas mileage,
low-emission .vehicles. -The
city, to its credit, saves
money each year to buy new
cars, so the cash was readily
available.
Instead the city has
e obtained two used Ford
Crown Victorias from the
Monroe County Sheriff's
-Office. Doing this is not only
the kind of short-term think-
ing that has also gotten the

elect Obama has already said, "Delay is
no longer an option. Denial is no longer
an acceptable response. The stakes are
too high. The consequences, too seri-
ous."
That doesn't mean that-local commu-
nities are off the hook. Sure, we have to
worry about city and personal finances
but the future of the planet is more
important than money. We all have to
tighten our belts while working to
reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

The Key West Planning
Board meets in special session
Thursday to consider a variance
request from the Truman Annex

But City Planning Director

"They just don't meet the

operate a skimming system using
local vessels to recover oil from
the water after a spill.
The Coast Guard has 19 such
systems pre-positioned nation-
wide for pollution response.
Coast Guard Sector Key West's
system is stored on trailers in
Miami for rapid deployment to
both Coast Guard sectors Key
West and Miami. It also has
5,000 feet of fomin-filled oil-spill


containment boom.

Gardens Hotel gets a little greener


-By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Gardens Hotel at 526
Angela St. in Key West has con-
verted the hot water system in
one of its buildings to run off
solar energy as yet another step in
- an overall green initiative.
The Gardens was the first
hotel in the Keys to be designated
Sb the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection as a
Green Lodging, and the move to
solar-hea.ted water continues the
Gardens' green philosophy.
"We're the Gardens. We're a
natural environment," General
Manager Cindy DeRocher said.
Stock Island company Eco-
Nomic Solutions oversaw the
project and plumber .Shawn
Hudgins did the contracting
work.
In a nutshell, the system pipes
water from a tank to two 4-foot-
by-8-foot rooftop panels, where


the water. circulates and absorbs
energy from the sun. The heated
water is then used for sinks,
showers and washing machines.
"Your typical hot water usage
in a home is 20 to 30 percent of
your electric bill every month.
You can eliminate 60 to 50 per-
cent of that cost by using solar
hot water," Eco-Nomic Solutions
owners Jedde Regante said.
"You're reducing your carbon
footprint, as well."
A typical household system
costs between $3,500 and $5,000
to install.
The first steps for going green
at the Gardens were to replace all
of the standard light bulbs with
longer-lasting, more efficient
compact fluorescent bulbs and
aggressively pursue a recycling
program. Staff also closely moni-
tored the temperatures in vacant
guest rooms to reduce energy


consumption.
In the first year, tracked from
June 2007 to June 2008,
DeRocher said the Gardens
reduced its water use by 2 per-
cent, energy consumption by 11
percent and waste stream by 30
percent.
DeRocher said it just came
down to "looking .at the really
simple -things to do" to promote
environmental welfare.
Jodi Weinhofer, president of
the Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West,
works with DEP to encourage
member properties to pursue the
green certification, and she says,
"The response, especially down
here, has been overwhelming."
"People come to the Florida
Keys for lots of reasons,"
Weinhofer said, "but the environ-
ment isn't lost on anyone."
Weinhofer said guests at green
lodgings are able to see the sim-
plicity and effectiveness of sus-


tainable practices and take those
ideas home. "The bottom line is
everyone of us can make a differ-
ence."
The two new solar panels at
the Gardens use thermal energy
to heat water, which is, in turn,
piped for use in the hotel's laun-
dry room, the poolside bar and
three guest rooms.
Although the system went in
just last week and energy savings


have not shown up on the utility
bill yet, "I'm excited," DeRocher
said. "I definitely think it's a step
in the right direction."
DeRocher credits owner Kate
Miano with making the invest-
ment in solar. "We have to start
somewhere using technology that
will lead to a more sustainable
future," she said. Besides, "Down
here in the Keys, we definitely
have to use the sun."

SHE'S AN ANGEL: Shelly Sass and her husband Michael Geisert are scheduled to complete
the restoration of the Rosa Navarro gravesite in the Key West Cemetery today. Navarro, child
of Maria Navarro, died while visiting family in New York. She reportedly fell to her death from
a window in the early 1900s. Over the years, the gravesite sustained considerable damage
- Rosa's head had been missing for years. Sass and Geisert believe they have reconstructed
it comparable to the original.

FlU poll: Cuba
positions shifting
The. Brookings Institution
and Florida- International
University on Tuesday released
a poll showing major shifts in
Cuban-American attitudes
toward Cuba and U.S. policies
toward the island nation.
.Conducted by FIU's Institute
for Public Opinion Research
shortly after the presidential


election, the poll measured the
responses of 800 Cuban-
Americans in Miami-Dade
County on a range of issues that
included the U.S. trade embargo
and the U.S. travel ban, among
other issues.. The poll was fund-
ed by the Brookings Institution
and the Cuba Study Group.
One result shows a signifi-
cant shift that might impact
Cuba policy during the Obama
administration: 55 percent of
Cuban-Americans think the


embargo against -Cuba should
end. This reflects increasing
numbers of Cubans who came to
the U.S. after 1980, and particu-
larly after 1998, relative to those
who came before.
The result demonstrates a
continuing shift in attitudes by
Cuban-Americans and reflects a
generational rift between those
Cuban-Americans who arrived
in the U.S. in the 1960s and
those who came to the U.S. in
the 1980s or later, pollsters say.

Lignumvitae
brings out
holiday history
Melba Nezbed is making a list
and checking it twice as she pre-
pares for the annual Lignumvitae
Christmas on Saturday and Sunday.
The historic island house "will
be decorated inside and out with
everything that's in bloom out on
the island," says Nezbed, the
manager of the state botanical
park in Florida Bay off mile
marker 78.5.
The event runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
both days, with Robbie's Marina
providing transportation over to
the island for just $5 a person.
It's the 11th year for the event,
which offers visitors a peek into
what Christmas might have been
like when the island was occu-
pied by caretakers in the early
1900s, Nezbed says.

The Lignumvitae Christmas is in its 11th year. Visitors to the island
can see how the holidays were celebrated a century ago.


Prepping for the event has
become a labor of love for
Nezbed, who collects and makes
the decorations. Nezbed uses
what's available among, the
island's lush flora, making angels
out of palm fronds and using
grape vines instead of holly.
Crafty sorts can sit a spell and
make their own ornaments using
items such as sea .grape leaves,
shells and sea beans.
Volunteers come out on
Thursday to decorate the coral,
rock house, which was built for
the island's caretakers by then-
owner William John Matheson,
according to historian Jerry
Wilkinson's- Web site, www
.keyshistory.org. Matheson,
owner of the Biscayne Chemical
Co., bought the island in. 1919.
A dulcimer group from

Nezbed says.
There will be limited tours of
