Grouper deadline to pass


Commerce chief
has yet to sign
off on closure
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com

A grouper closure planned for
federal Atlantic Ocean waters off
the Florida Keys is running
behind schedule.


The closure could still be
enacted - but cannot take effect
by the intended Jan. 1 start date,
as most people thought.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce
Carlos Gutierrez apparently took
no action this week on the interim
emergency rule sought by the
South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council.
Such a closure cannot take
effect until 30 days after the com-


merce secretary endorses it. That
federal regulation apparently
slipped under the radar of many
in the Keys, who thought the clo-
sure would take effect automati-
cally.
Gutierrez could also decide to
block the plan or change it - the
option favored by many South
Floridians, including U.S. Rep.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
"It would be so harmful to the

Key Largo
likely to opt
out of district
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission meets Monday in
Marathon to decide whether to
create two taxing districts to
fund TraumaStar, an emergency
Medical helicopter service run
by the Sheriff's Office.
In November, voters
approved a nonbinding referen-
dum supporting a tax to fund the
service, which costs the county
upward of $2 million per year to
operate.
If approved by the commis-
sion, property owners below
mile marker 95 would pay
$52.50 annually based on a mill-
age rate of .15, while those north
of mile marker 95 would pay
$26.25 based on a millage rate-
of .075.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro has been a strong pro-
ponent of continuing
TraumaStar service.
"It's a life-saving service that
we need and I support it and I
always have and always will,"
he said. "My only concern is
what Key Largo is going to do.
They have the right to opt out,
but the public has spoken; that's
why it went out for a nonbinding
referendum."
The Key Largo area is includ-
ed in the Upper Keys Health
Care Taxing District ard has had
an air ambulance agreement
with Miami-Dade County Air-
Rescue and now the for-profit
LifeNet since the 1990s.
The TraumaStar referendum
passed easily Nov. 4 with 55
percent of'the vote. However, it
failed to gain support any of the
10 northernmost of the county's
33 voting precincts.
Any municipality or special
taxing district can opt out of
paying the tax - but would not
be serviced by TraumaStar. In
Key Largo, opponents of
TraumaStar include the Key
Largo Fire and Emergency
Services District and the Key
-:Largo 'Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department.


County Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy represents the Key
Largo area and said she agrees
with the EMS district.
"They have the ability to opt
in or out. Whatever their deci-
sion is, I'll go along with it," she
said.
Murphy also raised questions
about who will operate the serv-
ice should it continue to be fund-
ed by the county.
"The other question in my
mind is who it will belong to. I
want it out of the Sheriff's


In November,

Office and into Fire Rescue's
hands," she said. "I want it all
under one umbrella."
Commissioners Heather
Carruthers and Kim Wigington
said they'll keep an open mind
heading into Monday's meeting,
but that it's clear voters sent a
message in November.
"But the message was differ-
ent in Islamorada north. We have
to respect the voters' wishes, but
what can we do about the budg-
et," Carruthers said.
Budget concerns caused
county officials to propose the
tax to continue funding
TraumaStar, even though
patients are billed for the cost of
service. However, residents
would not be billed above and
beyond what their insurance
pays.
LifeNet bills patients but not
the county, while Miami-Dade
Air Rescue bills neither.

Saunders' summit


is Wednesday


State, local,
federal agencies
to participate
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

State Rep. Ron Saunders says
he wants to be ahead of the curve
when it comes to future Keys
issues.
Last year, he started holding
so-called sewer summits to bring
together the various Keys fac-
tions who have a stake in funding
to construct sewers.
Now he's reaching much fur-
ther out - he's convening what
he calls the Future of the Keys
Summit on Wednesday that takes
in any and all agencies that have
anything even remotely to do
with Monroe County.
"I thought the sewer summits
were a good prelude to this. That
- was a specific issue, but it
showed if you get people in one
room, there's a lot more strengths
in working together," Saunders
said.
Saunders said a good starting
point for the meeting will be a
presentation by the state
Department of Community
Affairs.
"They're going to talk about
issues with an area of state criti-
cal concern. There's some goals
we have to achieve in order to be
de-designated," he said.
Because the Keys are desig-
nated an Area of Critical State
Concern, DCA has oversight of
most issues related to develop-
ment.
Other issues Saunders antici-
pates being discussed
Wednesday: Hurricane evacua-
tion, growth management and
issues facing senior citizens,
among others.
Saunders said with the
Marathon Manor closing in 2005
and the Key West Convalescent
Center now shutting down, offi-
cials need to discuss how the
county willaccommodate its sen-
ior population. He said the Key
West center closed in part
because hurricane evacuations -
many of which have, proven
unnecessary -. cost "a couple
hundred thousand dollars.",
"There's a lot of issues facing


us," Saunders said, "but with the
summits you find you have more
in'common than you thought."
The session is at 2 p.m;
Wednesday at the Marathon
Government Center. It will be
open to the public and' televised
on Monroe County Channel 76
on Comcast Cable. The summit is
being held solely for information
purposes; no decisions will be
made or votes taken.
Those invited include:
+ U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen and state Sen. Larcenia

Keys Opinion


Keys veterans show

real spirit of giving

Some recent headlines are worth noting because they remind
us in this holiday season that there are many different kinds of
gift giving.
"Injured soldiers again treated to Keys diving experience."
"Keys man helps locate World War II war dead."
"Vietnam Memorial coming this week."
The front page of our sister newspaper, The Reporter, on
Friday carried the story about soldiers wounded in Iraq and
Afghanistan hosted for a third year to a Keys diving adventure.
Working with the Wounded Warrior Project out of Fort
Campbell, Ky., Kenny Wheeler of Ocean Divers North in Key
Largo linked up with local businesses to host a dozen soldiers
who will enjoy diving, trips to local restaurants and hotel stays.
Our headline about a Keys man who helped locate what's
believed to be 139 graves on Tarawa Atoll in the Pacific is yet
another example of Keys involvement in veterans causes.
Mark Noah of Marathon raised money to mount the expedi-
tion through his nonprofit group, History Flight. And one of
his avid volunteers is another Keys man, James Clayton
Johnson, whose uncle James Bernard Johnson died on Tarawa
at age 17.
His uncle's remains and those of 541 other missing World
War II Marines await further archaeological excavation.
For some military families, the discovery of those killed
and/or missing in action represents closure. For others, like
Johnson, it's more about reminding Americans of the sacrifices
made on our behalf. "My problem is that people don't care,"
he said.
Perhaps those behind our third headlined story, "Vietnam
Memorial coming this week," can prove that people do care.
Starting Friday, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall will be
exhibited at Key West High School.
S This traveling tribute to those' who gave their lives in
Vietnam now has added the names of the Sept. 11, 2001, vic-
tims, and the names of casualties from the Iraq War, etched
into gold dog tags.
Retired U.S. Navy vet Mike Driscoll, executive director of
the Old Island Restoration Foundation in Key West, is the

Convalescent center's closing was a community travesty


EDITOR:
This is in response to the Agency for Health
Care Administration's citations and its overzeal-
ous behavior that resulted in the subsequent loss
of funding from the Center for Medicare and
Medicaid Services for the Key West
Convalescent Center.
My in-laws were patients at the convalescent
center for rehabilitation and my mother had been
a full-time resident for three years. I had been a
constant presence since my mother's admittance
as well as during my in-laws' rehabs.
To say I know the staff and their care of the
residents would be a good assumption. The care
is with concern, compassion and respect from the
nurses, department heads and other wonderful
people that I find myself asking an obvious ques-
tion: What was really going on here?
Deficiencies cited by Health Care
Administration were predominantly paperwork or
maintenance issues of little consequence when it
comes to patient care, such as dust on sprinkler
heads, lint in dryers, water one degree too hot
and mold under sinks. Sounds minor to a reason-
able person.
The abuse policy at the convalescent center
was that of absolute zero tolerance. The citations
were dubious and exaggerated to say the least.
Yes, evacuations are difficult, expensive and a
fact of living in the Keys, though they do not jus-
tify unfairly burdening an entire community with
no resource availed to them now.


Individuals with cognitive impairments are
affected traumatically by change in environment,
and the possibility of death to residents in already
fragile condition makes relocation irresponsible.
Because of our geography, the convalescent cen-
ter was critical to our community. How do we, as
a society, allow such a travesty to be perpetuated
upon us and our loved ones by the very agencies
that are supposed to aid in their protection?
If you don't think this issue affects you, think
again. Home health care runs $9,000 to $12,000
monthly for 24/7 care. For roughly $5,000 a
month, your only other option was the convales-
cent center, with the integrity not often found in
large cities. To qualify for Medicaid (a form of
welfare), Florida law requires assets of no more
than $2,000. If you qualified and required extend-
ed congregate care, the center was again your
only option. Indigent residents in facilities receiv-
ing Social Security benefits forfeit all but a $35
monthly allowance, with the remaining going
toward the cost of your care.
The balance is where Medicare and Medicaid
come into play, as they oversee the funding and
control the application of funds, or lack thereof in
this case.

Global warming is a myth and boondoggle


EDITOR:
.Concerning Mr. Welber's guest column,
"Global warming is hardly a joke." It's certainly
not a joke - it's a boondoggle.
The San Diego Union-Tribune wrote:
"According to scientists in New York and
California, it takes more energy to make ethanol
than you get back in fuel savings. More precise-
ly, says David Pimentel of Coriell University, it
takes the equivalent of 1.29 gallons of gasoline
to produce enough ethanol to replace one gallon
of gasoline at the pump. Instead of making the
nation more energy self-sufficient, ethanol pro-
duction actually increases our need for oil and
gas imports, Pimentel says."
SEthanol contains 20 to. 30 percent less energy
than gasoline. So let's drive electric cars and then
what are we going to do with all the depleted
batteries? The energy-saving fluorescent lights
are hazardous waste in California; one-has to
take them to a recycling plant - that uses more
gasoline.
Mr. Welber also implies the California fires are
caused by global warming. I lived there 38 years
and it burned every year; some years were worse
than others. I can guarantee fires, rain, mudslides
and earthquakes every year; and hurricanes are
caused by manmade global warming? I think not.
On Oct. 17, Thomas R. Knutson from the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration wrote: "We conclude that despite
statistical'correlations between Atlantic hurricane-
aictivity in recent decades, it is premature to con-
clude that human activity - and particularly


greenhouse warming - has already had a dis-
cernible impact on Atlantic hurricane activity."
Mr. Welber's most glaring error is the claim this
October was hot. In a November report, NOAA
registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 low-
est-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it
as only the 70th warmest October in 114 years.
For the last 15 years in Anaheim, Calif., I recy-
cled everything except table scraps. My wife and I
live green and I think that's the way of the future,
but let's get our facts straight and not fear monger.

Slow down and obey the speed limit


EDITOR:
I was hoping you could explain
the driving habits of the Keys
community.
I'm not from here originally,
but have lived here for three years.
I've never seen poorbr driving
anywhere else, and I've lived all
over this country. I live at mile
marker 99 and every single day,
people fly through here like it's
the Daytona 500. I seem to be the
only person here who does the
speed limit because these ignorant
people race by me all the time.
I just buried a small cat that
was hit right in front of my .house.
I ran out in the street with cars
blazing past me so I could save the
cat from further obliteration. It
was twisted and screaming and
died in my driveway 10 minutes
later, and then I buried it.


Recycling is good


The point is, the speed limit is
set at 45 mph in front of my home
and not one single person follows
it, including the law. I was nearly
run over by a cop going every bit
of 90 mph as I was checking my
mail one evening. Didn't have his
lights flashing or anything. If law
enforcement won't abide, how will
anyone else?
I'm thoroughly disgusted and
enraged by the way people act
down here.-Simply phenomenal is
the complete disregard for one
another. This being the worthless-
drunk capital of the world is no
excuse for its inhabitants to drive
with their feet while blindfolded.
I just needed to vent about this
and let you know what one citizen
thinks.

environmentally, economically


EDITOR:
The Green Living & Energy
Education Web site -
(www.keysglee.com) gets mes-
sages ddily from people wanting
to know how to recycle shredded
paper, get recycling bins for their
schools, organize the cleanup of a
neighborhood park, become a
solar installer.
In November, GLEE volunteers
from Key West to-Key Largo host-
ed educational fairs on how to .
apply R4 techniques - Reduce,
Reuse, Recycle and-Rot - in our
everyday lives, thereby shrinking
our carbon footprints. Meanwhile,
our policymakers were meeting at
the quarterly Keyswide Sustain
Ability Project summit to share
information about their progress
using-various sustainability meas-
ures. The reports are encouraging.
But we can do more.
In Key West, a residential recy-
cling ordinance is slated for a
reading by city commissioners in...
early January. By requiring all res-
idents to recycle, tie city aims to
increase its recycling rate to 30
percent (good for the planet) and
reduce solid-waste costs by
$800,000 per year (good for
ratepayers). Not much to argue
with there. Recycling is a no-
brainer for reducing our consump-
tion of natural resources, and the
savings on our.waste hauling
expenses is badly needed in
today's economic climate.
The era of uninformed mass
consumption and: not taking
responsibility for our "messes" is


hopefully coming to an end. We
can no longer deny that climate
change exists as the water rises
and the icecaps melt. Now we
must believe that we are not pow-
erless to make it change. It's a
matter of acting responsibly.
Key West just launched an anti-
littering campaign that uses humor
(Sloppy Joe may be sloppy, but he
didn't litter here.) to encourage
folks to be considerate (don't drop
that cigarette or someone might
kick your ash.) The campaign was
the brainstorm of GLEE volunteer
Erika Biddle, who wants to see
our island send a message. Next
step: Adopt a recycling bin on
Duval Street.
I trust that our Key West city
commissioners will see the pend-
ing recycling ordinance as a sim-
ple step in improving our lot
financially, environmentally and
as a tourist destination with a bad
reputation for not being very clean
or green.
Let's hope communities
throughout the Keys will join Gov.
Charlie Christ in-his quest to
increase Florida's recycling rate to
75 percent by 2020. With Key
West's current rate at a paltry 6
percent, we need to get this ordi-
nance passed, provide recycling
bins to all and establish an ongo-
ing education program for our res-
idents and visitors.

Keep our deputies safe


EDITOR:
I would like to express my deepest
sympathies to both the Monroe County

back sad memories of the loss of another
fine officer, Deputy Robin Tanner.

Water is already recycled, for trees and shrubs


EDITOR:
I read in the Dec. 3 Keynoter that the
state has given $500,000 for a wastewater
recycling project. This got me to thinking
about my own situation and how we will
be affected when central sewage comes in.
We presently have a so-called mounded
drain field septic system. Now what hap-
pens to the 3,000 or so gallons of Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority water that we
use each month? Why, all of it is being
recycled. It goes to nourish our landscap-


ing - trees, shrubs and flowers, and with
no need for any state subsidy.
Now, when central sewers come in,
what happens? Why, my 3,000 gallons
goes somewhere off site. How will my
landscaping get watered? Maybe I'll get
some of that state-financed recycled water.
Or will I have to buy another 3,000 gallons
from FKAA?

Stopping traffic to ask for money endangers lives


EDITOR:
I have to ask who thinks it's a good idea
for coin drops on busy weekends and holi-
days at the traffic lights. There are so many
people trying to get to their destinations
without incident or accident.
You think the sign flashing is alerting
you to a problem up ahead and instead it is
asking you to have your money ready. Now
you're busy hunting for your purse or trying
to get your wallet out or get into your pock-
et for change, distracting you from traffic
and from operating your vehicle in a safe
manner.
Then you have to deal with people in the
road running up to your window soliciting
money when you are trying to get to work


or your hotel or the grocery store or through
. the light before someone sits on their horn.
I know everyone needs more help now.
And I do give. But watching people trying
to get out of the way of emergency person-
nel on their way to an accident (as I did
with Deputy Nick Pham's accident while
waiting at the light) and trying to move
when the volunteers are in the way, I have
to wonder if it's worth the money. There
must be some safer way to raise needed
, funds for all our worthy causes without
endangering the lives of others. Or irritating
them before they get to their final vacation
spot or job.

Trap reduction OK'd


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Commercial lobster fisher-
men can live with a passive trap-
reduction plan, trappers told-
state managers Thursday.
The trappers agreed to a plan
that calls for a 10-percent reduc-
tion in the number of lobster-trap
certificates sold outside the fish-
erman's immediate family.
Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association Presi-
dent Karl Lessard told the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, "Our organization
supports the reduction."
Organized Fishermen of
Florida members also backed the
plan.
Several individual fishermen,
including Bruce Irwin, Bobby
Pillar, Tom Coppedge and Jeff
Cramer, said the reduction is
acceptable since it does not


reduce a working fisherman's
trap allocation.
The reduction - part of a
plan to cap the number of lobster
traps in Florida water at 400,000
- was unanimously approved
by the FWC at its Thursday
meeting in Key West;
Lessard said the reduction
from the current 490,000-trap
level is the best way to prevent
more painful measures possible.
under federal fishing law.. -
Stock Island Lobster Co.
owner Peter Bacle vigorously
dissented from his fellow com-
mercial fishermen.
The 400,000-trap limit "has
nothing to do with science, or
economics but is purely. driven
by politics," Bacle charged.
Lowering the allowable num-
ber of traps is "detrimental to the
survival of.the commercial fish-
ing industry," he said.


FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto said the passive reduc-
tion plan "is favored by about 96
percent of the industry" because
it doesn't harm family fishing
businesses.
.In the past 15 years, the num-
ber of lobster traps has been'
reduced from an estimated
940,000 to-the current level.
Reducing trap numbers pre-
vents a significant amount of
bottom and coral damage, and
reduces accidental bycatch of
juvenile, lobster, and other
species, FWC biologist William
Teehan said.
Lobster fishermen have plen-
ty of other problems, including
lower prices and a declining
catch rate, they reminded the
FWC commissioners.
"Our catch is down by half,"
said Lower Keys resident Mimi
Stafford. "My family is strug-
gling."

Wider shoulder
off schedule
until at least 2013
By LARRY KAHN
Ikahn@keynoter.com

Citing a lack of money, the
Florida- Department of
Transportation has deferred
construction of a 10-foot-wide
shoulder along northbound
U.S. 1 from mile marker 93 to
mile marker 106.6.
At DOT's annual Keys
hearing on its five-year work
program Wednesday night at
the Marathon Government
Center, agency spokeswoman
Linda Johnson revealed that
because DOT construction is
financed through gasoline
taxes, fnd gas consumption
has been down the past year,
the planned 2010 construction
now won't take place at least
until 2013. The cost of the
shoulder is estimated at $27
million.
Many Key Largo residents
oppose the construction any-
way, calling it a fifth lane of
U.S. 1 that would be used by
impatient drivers.
But DOT says that's not the
case and that it in fact would
be just a shoulder, and would
be opened to traffic onl\ in the

construction.
In January, the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs is expected to release a
new report on the status of
hurricane evacuation times for
the Keys, but that likely will
have little bearing on DOT's
plans.
Even without the shoulder
construction, the 13.6-mile
section of U.S. 1 is in bad
shape and needs to be repaved.
That likely won't happen for
another four years either,
Johnson says.
SAlso Wednesday, DOT said
construction would start next
month on Grassy Key, where a
500-foot middle turn lane will
be added along 1.5 miles.
Work is expected to last a year.
DOT officials didn't have
the latest cost estimate for the
work, which will take place
from mile marker 55.9 to 57.4,
but last year, they said the
budget would be $6.7 million.
Included in the plans are
expanding the shoulders on
each side of the road to 12 feet
from 10. Five feet of shoulder
on each side will be paved, up
from 4 now. The middle lane
will be 12 feet wide.

report noted 325 turtles were
dead or "unresponsive." The
condition of the others was
unknown.
"That's a big deal,"
Commissioner Kenneth Wright
said.
FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto repeatedly raised the tur-
tle issue, pointing out that
longlining has long been banned
in state waters.
"I'm totally against longlin-
ing," Barreto said. "[Federal offi-
cials] need to do something."
Commissioner Ron Bergeron
said he was appalled at "the
amount of these endangered
species we're killing."
Some cities "can't clean their
beaches" because of turtle-pro-
tection rules, he said, and laws
require that turtle-nesting beach-
es not be affected by nearby
lighting.
"Then they let this kind of
activity go on," Bergeron said.
"This cancels out" benefits of
other regulation.
Longlining is a commercial
fishing technique that lays a sin-
gle fishing line out for miles with
dozens or even hundreds of other
baited lines trailing out from it.


In other items at the FWC
meeting in Key West:
+ Staff said a $1 million fed-
eral grant for fisheries research
will help state staff prepare stock
assessments on key species like
red and black grouper. The lack
of current science on species was
cited in several discussions.

Broad-based
group meets
on Wednesday
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West business leaders
convene Wednesday to start dis-
cussions about how to possibly
diversify the city's economy in
tough economic times.
From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
at the Doubletree Grand Key
Resort, Mayor Morgan
McPherson will lead a roundtable
discussion to give a platform to
representatives of lodgings,
attractions and the retail industry.
He wants their input on how the
national recession can be com-
bated locally and perhaps branch
out from a tourism-based econo-
my.
"Any level of communication,
especially in the situation we're
in right now with the economy, is
a good thing," said Jodi
Weinhofer, president of the
Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West.
She plans to attend
Wednesday. Also scheduled to
attend are Realtor Karen Lane;
Dave Oatway, who works with
the city's Ambassador Program;


Sarah Knott representing the Key
West Attractions Association;
Raymond Archer, director of city
port operations; Jill Landesberg-
Boyle, president of Florida Keys
Community College; and Nance
Frank, director of the Gallery on
Greene.
Also, Greg Whipple, retail
manager of Historic Tours of
America; Ian Whitney, president
of the Innkeepers Association;
Doug Blomberg, executive direc-
tor of Wesley House Family
Services; Randy Acevedo,
Monroe County schools superin-
tendent; and Dianna Sutton, pres-
ident of the Community
Foundation of the Florida Keys.
In the invitation, McPherson
says, "We are witnessing a reces-
sion that is worldwide in scope.
Economists are warning us that
recovery will not be quick. It
seems prudent to explore the sus-
tainability of our local economy."
Paul Clayton, the city's
affordable housing coordinator,
has been working with
McPherson to make the meeting
a reality. He hopes that those
attending will use the summit to
"understand the economic tem-
perature and come away with
ideas."

Commission denies land-use change


By RYAN McCARTHY
and LARRY KAHN
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


After hearing emotional testi-
mony from more than a dozen
people, the Monroe County
Commission on Wednesday
refused to approve an amendment
to its land-use plan and asked the
state to postpone a Dec. 16 hear-
ing that would have ratified a new
type of zoning for Stock Island
developers.
Instead, commissioners direct-
ed Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette to draft regulations
that would allow New Stock
Island Properties, a developer, to
move forward with a possible
300-room hotel at Safe Harbor,
and work with the developer on a
development agreement.
The. land-use amendment
would have established a new
zoning category called Deep Port
Harbor, and allowed more devel-


opment than is currently allowed.
If it were approved, New Stock
Island could have conceivably
built as many as 800 hotel rooms
and 300 affordable housing units,
inaddition to 52,000 square feet
of commercial space on its 56-
acre property.
" New Stock Island envisions a
working waterfront with the hotel,
docks, restaurants, shops, com-
mercial fishing and a boardwalk.
SNew Stock Island hopes to
build its waterfront development
using a process modeled after
Marathon's - hotel/motel ordi-
nance passed in 2005. That law
allows hotel rooms to be redevel-
oped as 1,500-square-foot suites
with three bedrooms and two
bathrooms.
The result was mom-and-pop
motels and trailer park owners
selling out to developers and a
wave of high-end agreements


approved to redevelop them.
Little to no progress has been
made on many of those redevel-
opments.
Wednesday, County Com-
missioner Kim Wigington ques-
tioned the need to change the
county land-use plan because
New Stock Island can conceivably
build under current regulations.
"Why are we changing our
existing comp plan with this one
development in mind?"
Wigington asked.
Charlie Renier, a Stock Island
business owner involved with
New Stock Island, told the com-
mission his group has no inten-
tion of building 800 rooms.
"We set up for the whole proj-
ect to be a 300-room hotel. That
has not changed from Day 1,"
Renier said.
"We're not doing 800 units
and I'm damn sure not going to
displace people for it," he said.
The agreement requires the trans-


fer of transient units, which could
conceivably be obtained by buy-
ing out local trailer parks.
Even though New Stock
Island's plans are for a deep-water
port, the new regulations must be
consistent for all qf unincorporat-
ed Monroe County, not just the
Safe Harbor area where New
Stock Island wants to build,
Commissioner Heather Carruthers
said. However, Safe Harbor is the
only deep-water port in the county
other than Key West.
"If they drop dead tomorrow
and other people take over the
project, it can be done. I would
like the wording to avoid any
possibility that this thing is going
to morph into something bigger,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said.
Commissioners questioned
Trivette Wednesday on a variety of
issues pertaining to the agreement.
He repeatedly referred back to
a Feb. 4 meeting in which the


commission allowed wholesale
revisions written by attorneys
representing developers to made
to what was then supposed to be a
law to protect the traditional uses
of working waterfronts, such as
fish houses.
At that meeting, Commis-
sioner Mario Di Gennaro, along
with then-commissioners Sonny
McCoy and Dixie Spehar, voted
to add the language, despite not
reading it before voting.
Wigington called Trivette's
repeated references to the meet-
ing a "gentle 'I told you so.'"
"We're interested in some type
of redevelopment on Stock
Island, but this may not be the
vehicle for it. My concern from
the beginning is we're trying to
fit a square peg in a round hole,"
Trivette said.
The commission is scheduled
to revisit the item at a" Monday
meeting at the Marathon
Government Center at 10 a.m.

City pitches island purchase


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon city officials hosted
various state and federal officials
Friday in an effort to secure fund-
ing for the purchase of Boot Key.
City Planning Director George
Garrett, with the help of local his-
torian Dan Gallagher, presented an
outline of the island's history and
makeup, which was followed by
aerial tours courtesy of the Florida
Keys Mosquito Control District.
Boat tours of the island were also
scheduled in the afternoon.
"I think the city may have a
unique opportunity to possibly
get our hands on Boot Key, which
is 1,100 acres relatively undis-
turbed for our future generations
to use," City Manager Clyde
Burnett said.
Plans have been floated at
recent City Council meetings to
purchase Boot Key and possibly
turn it in to an eco-preserve/tourist
destination. Burnett said the
island's three parcel owners are

In December 2007, the state
Department of Transportation
declared the drawbridge to Boot
Key a hazard and closed it to all
traffic, even pedestrian. Since
then, the council has made it clear
in several meetings that it doesn't
intend.to spend upward of $10
million to refurbish the bridge.
In April, the city released the
results of an appraisal of Boot
Key done to determine liability in
the event the bridge is not
repaired. Done by Lee H.
Waronker of Waronker & Rosen
Inc., the appraisal valued the
island at a combined $3.4 million
with bridge access and $1.47 mil-
lion without.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
came down Friday to check Boot
Key out - and of course, some.
ribbing was in order over the
Wednesday incident in which she
hung up - twice - on
President-elect, Barack Obama,
believing he was a prank caller.
"I feel honored; Ileana does
take my phone calls," Burnett said.
Garrett and Gallagher went
through slides of Boot Key from
as far back as 1863 that illustrat-.
ed how much the island, consist-
ing mainly of mangroves, has
filled in over the years. The entire
island, outside of a small mixed-
use parcel, is zoned
Conservation-Native.
According to Garrett, the island
contains 815 acres of mangroves
and saltmarsh, 270 acres of sub-
merged lands, 30 acres of upland
hammock, 10 acres of developed

Former candidate
arrested yet again

Andy Williams, the former
Florida Keys Mosquito Control
Board candidate who nearly
spent Election Day in jail follow-
ing' his ninth arrest of 2008, is
back in jail following his
Wednesday arrest on a Lake
County warrant.
Williams, 45, is charged with
violation of probation stemming
from a cocaine possession count
and another of having an auto tag
attached to the wrong car in Lake
County, which is just northwest of
Orlando, says Matthew Helmerich,
spokesman for the Monroe County


land and five acres of roads.
Chris Bergh, directory of The
Nature Conservancy in the Keys,
said the city would benefit from
acquiring Boot Key. He said it's
the "last big opportunity for
Marathon" and an important fly-
way for migratory birds.
"Now is the time. You've got
willing sellers and the interest of
a number of different partners,"
he said. "It will be complicated,
but it's all doable. I urge you to
seize the opportunity."
Also attending Friday were
representatives from the state
Department of Community
Affairs and the Department of
Environmental Protection.
DCA Director of Legislative
Affairs Melissa Joiner said the
purchase of Boot Key and its
potential uses could rank well in
the Florida Communities Trust
program, which is part of the
Florida Forever land acquisition
program.
"The main program is part of
Florida Forever and it buys vari-
ous parcels for historic preserva-
tion, for access to waterways,
public access and parks," Joiner
said. "If you look at how we rank
qualifications, this project has a
lot of them."
Joiner said applications for
Florida Communities Trust funds
are done annually on a competi-
tive basis and that projects offer-
ing matching funds are ranked
higher.
"An opportunity like this is
not going to come again. This is
the largest tract left, so I hope we
move forward and don't sleep on
it," Mayor Mike Cinque said.


State Attorney's Office.
On his booking information,
Williams lists his occupation as a
candidate.
Williams' most recent arrest
before Wednesday was on Oct.
21, for failing a court-ordered
drug test. He was released on
Nov. 1, Helmerich said.
Throughout this year, he's
been arrested on various charges,
including battery, shoplifting and
felony cocaine possession.
In August, he defeated Pat
Unferlth in the Republican pri-
mary for the District 1 Mosquito
Control Board seat. In
November, he was soundly
defeated by Democratic incum-
bent Joan-Lord,Papy.

Ros-Lehtinen


snubs Obama


Congresswoman
accidentally
hangs up on him
Keynoter Staff


U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen says no call from
Barack Obama once he becomes
president will be as memorable
as the ones she received
Wednesday.
She hung up on the presi-
dent-elect - twice - thinking
he was a prank caller from a
South Florida radio station.
Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican,
says she was working in her
South Florida district, which
includes the Keys and part of
Miami-Dade, when she received
-a call on her cell phone from a
Chicago-based phone number.
One of her aides said it was
Obama and he wanted to speak
to the congresswoman.
Obama introduced himself to
Ros-Lehtinen and she cut him
off saying, "I'm sorry, but I
think this is a joke from one of
the South Florida radio stations
known for these pranks," and
hung up the phone.
A short time later, Obama's
chief of staff-designate Rahm
Emanuel called and said
"Ileana, I cannot believe you
hung up on the president-elect."
Ros-Lehtinen said she told
Emmanuel. she didn't believe
his call was legitimate either
and hung up on him, too.
Then Rep. Howard Berman
(D-Calif.), chairman of. the

on, which
Ros-Lehtinen
serves, called
the congress-
woman. She


ROS-LEHTINEN was at first
- skeptical it
was Berman until she asked him
to recount a story only both of
them would know. He did -
and also told her that she indeed
hung up on Obama twice.
She then received another
call from
Obama who
told her, "It is
very - funny
that you have
twice hung up,
on me."
S h e
explained
why she did,
OBAMA and told her
that South
Florida radio stations are known
to prank-call famous people.
Ros-Lehtinen said Obama had a
good sense of humor about the
situation, and the two went on to
discuss foreign policy issues,
specifically about. Cuba and
Israel.
Ros-Lehtinen talked to
Secretary of State-designate
Hillary Clinton by phone earlier
in the week, and they also dis-
cussed Cuba and Israel, she
said.

Hoteliers say


no to new tax


Commission
soundly defeats
McPherson plan
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@.keynoter.com

The issue of affordable hous-
ing in Key West heated up again
this week when a measure to
explore implementing a new bed
tax was soundly defeated in the
City Commission, while a new
opportunity to secure state fund-
ing for affordable housing sent
city staff hurrying to complete
an application.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson brought a resolution
before the City Commission on
Tuesday that would have direct-
ed city lobbyists in Tallahassee
to push for dedicated funding
streams to fund affordable hous-
ing, possibly from a real estate
-transfer tax, a portion of the bed
tax or from a-food and beverage
tax.
Similar resolutions were
passed by the commission in
2007 and 2006 but resulted in
lodging lobbyists and city lobby-
ists clashing in Tallahassee and
putting state Rep. Ron Saunders
in a tug-of-war.
Lodging industry representa-
tives came out in force to oppose
the implementation of the so-
called fifth penny of the bed tax.
Kate Miano, owner of The
Gardens Hotel on-Angela Street,
told the commission that the
lodging industry is in no position
to incur a new tax: "Our industry
in Key West is tourism. That's it.
Our industry is suffering. This
could become a ghost town."
The lodging industry made
the argument that if lodging cre-
ated the taxable revenue, the
money should be used to further
bolster the industry through mar-
keting efforts.
"I believe the tourist develop-
ment tax [the bed tax] plays an
essential role, and is the most
important tool we have to foster
a good economy for Key West
and Monroe County," said Julia
Fondriest, president of Historic
Key West Inns, reading a letter
into the record.
Paul Clayton, the city's
affordable housing coordinator,


said a lack of housing stock
affects both the city and the
lodging industry, whose employ-
ees comprise a large chunk of
people needing affordable hous-
ing.
* "This is not picking on the
hotel industry. They take up the
most amount of workforce hous-
ing" said Clayton:
The resolution was denied,
with only McPherson and.
Commissioner Bill Verge voting
in favor. Commissioner Mark
Rossi was absent.
Undaunted, McPherson added
a resolution to the agenda, which
was unanimously approved,
directing city staff to prepare an
application for state housing
funds that could, if approved on
the state level, inject up to $2
million into affordable housing
programs in Key West.
The state Housing Finance
Corp. will be disbursing $20
million dollars to be used for
down payment assistance, fore-
closure prevention and rehabili-
tating existing housing stock. To
be eligible, municipalities must
submit a plan demonstrating that
they will reduce impact fees by
25 percent over an 18-month
period.
Impact fees are assessed on
new developments, both com-
mercial and residential, to offset
the city's costs for sewer and
roads to accommodate the new
property.
City manager Jim Scholl said
Key West makes approximately
$70,000 annually on impact fees.
A cost/benefit analysis shows
that in order to gain up to $2 mil-
lion, the city would have to lose
around $18,000.
McPherson said that if the
city does get approved for state
funds, he would like to see them
used to perpetuate the Home-
buyer's Assistance Program that
was approved by the commis-
sion earlier this year.
The program lends up to
$20,000 for a down payment to
eligible Key West workforce and
was initially funded by a one-
time code compliance settle-
ment. As it stands, once the ini-
tial lump sum is depleted, the
program will be put on hiatus
until more funding is secured.

Two charge in separate arsons in Key West


And up the Keys,
villas burn
at Hawks Cay
Keynoter Staff

It was a.hot week for Key
West law enforcement - officers
responded to two separate
instances.. of alleged arson
Tuesday, one involving a vehicle,
the other a house.
In each case, someone was
arrested.
In the first one, officers
responded to a reported explosion
on Government Road and found a
1995 GMC Envoy engulfed in
flames. According to a police
report, three Fire Department
trucks responded and .quickly
extinguishing the fire.
A witness told officers she saw
two people flee the scene. The
pair, later identified as Anna
Clark, 25, from Frankfurt, Ky.,
and Wilmore Poveda, a 32-year-
old Nicaraguan national, were
found blocks away.
The report says Poveda told
officers he agreed to take a ride
with Clark, who stopped at a gas


station and filled a gas can. Then,
according to Poveda, Clark drove
down Government Road, parked
the SUV, doused it with gasoline
and lit it on fire, saying she didn't
want to make payments on the
vehicle anymore.
She was charged with motor-
vehicle arson, a felony.
In the second case, Robert Rey,
39, called police reporting that his
former partner, Christopher
Vanderlaan, poured gasoline on
the stoop of his Angela Street
home and lit it on fire. By the time
officers arrived, Vanderlaan had
fled on a blue scooter.
Vanderlaan, 33, was jailed on
a charge of arson.

Hawks Cay fire
Two villas at Hawks Cay
Resort on Duck Key were
destroyed by fire just after mid-
night Friday.
.Units 7208 and 7210 in the
Sanctuary area of the resort were
destroyed.
"Beautiful homes, both of
them," acting Monroe County Fire.
Rescue Chief Jim Callahan said.
"Conch Key got the call, they
were the first to arrive," Callahan
said. "When they got there, the


one on the left was completely
involved, and the one on the right
was fully involved, so they were
burning for awhile."
. He said "it became an ongo-
ing offensive-defensive
attack."
It took awhile but the flames
were finally doused. Besides


Conch Key, firefighters from
Marathon, Layton, Islamorada,
Key Largo and Big Pine Key
responded.
Luckily, no one was staying
in either unit but earlier in the
day Thursday, a workman was
doing work in one of the units.
Investigators are seeing if he

did anything that could have
sparked the blaze.
"Around 5, someone called in
and said they- smelled smoke"
but nothing was found, Callahan
said. "Who knows, it could have
been a barbecue or it could have
been smoldering."

HAVE YOU SEEN ME?: This severely injured manatee was
found Thursday'off Sunshine Key but evaded rescuers'
attempts at capture. The marine mammal is about 8 feet
long with deep wounds on its head that appear to be from
a boat propeller. It should be easy to identify with the fresh
wounds. If you see it, call (888) 404-3922. Explain it's the

Planning Board nixes gates


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


On Thursday night, the Key
West Planning Board voted to
deny a variance requested by the
Truman Annex Master Property
Owner's Association (TAMPOA)
that would have allowed the
neighborhood to proceed with
plans to erect a ,15-foot tall gate at
the Southard Street entrance.
"I thought that they [TAM-
POA] didn't have sufficient hard-
ship," said Planning Board mem-
ber Barry Barroso, referring to
one of the five criteria that need
to be met to warrant a variance.
"One of the things I weighed
heavily on was the adverse effect
to the neighborhood. Gates keep
people out."
The crux of TAMPOA's argu-
ment, verbalized by the associa-
tion's counsel, Bill Anderson,
was that city code as it applies to


residential fencing is not applica-
ble in this case. Anderson assert-
ed that the Truman Annex proper-
ty is zoned for commercial use
and, second, that the proposed
gate is not a fence at all but
instead a "structure."
Anderson also explained that
the gate isn't meant to impede
access to the exclusive communi-
ty but to provide an attractive and
architecturally appropriate wel-
come to the many cruise ship pas-
sengers who enter Key West
through the Truman property.
Prior to the vote, Planning
Board Chairman Richard
Klitenick reminded board mem-
bers to keep emotional matters
aside when making their deci-
sion. "We need to focus on our
charge," said Klitenick. "There
was nothing brought up to show
that not building the gate would


create a hardship."
After hearing from neighbors,
particularly Bahama Village resi-
dents who view the gate as a divi-
sive issue not meant to welcome
but rather to keep out, the board
voted unanimously to deny the
variance request.
The board's decision was in
step with recommendations from
the city Planning Department.
Planners, when making a deter-
mination on a variance, use seven
criteria that include evaluation of
hardship conditions and whether
or not the applicant created the
conditions that are the subject of
the request.
Any appeal brought by TAM-
POA would be heard in Monroe
County Circuit Court.
Anderson, speaking through
his assistant Pat Unferth, said that �
the TAMPOA board of directors
would have to meet before that
decision is made.

Dominick Livoti tools down Duval Street in a new GPS ScootCoupe, manufactured by th
company he founded, Panther Motors, in Tamarac.


Hey Big 3,


take a lesson from Livoti


Scooter company
owner strikes gold
making 3-wheeler
By PAMELA SUAREZ
Ke\ noter contributor

It was 1990, and times were
tough. The country was battling
a recession and fighting a war in
the Persian Gulf. The savings
and loan crisis was hitting its
peak. Oil prices were at a record
high..
Xnd Dominick Livoti was
down to his last $16.
The New York native had
recently folded his landscaping
business, which had never
rebounded from the economic
runnoil of the late 1980s, and set
out for Florida looking for a new
opportunity. He was walking the
Deerfield Beach shore contem-
plating his future when he came
upon an empty beach rental
h:ack. At that precise moment,
the trajectory of his life changed
forever.
"I had just been stiffed out of
m', last, paycliepi;; and ;I :was.
reilly down," Livoti recalled."


"But the guy that owned that,
shack was a nice Christian guy
named Kirk Cottrell, who owned
Island-Water Sports. He didn't
want, that shack just sitting'
empty, so he agreed to let me
have it so I could run rentals out
of it. He really helped me get
started."
Calling upon skills learned as
a kid tinkering with moped and
mini bike engines, Livoti set to
work turning that once-desolate
shack into a busy scooter, bicy-
cle and in-line skate rental busi-
ness catering to tourists. He
poured his initial slim, profits
back into the company he called
Fun Rentals, sometimes buying
used bikes from garage sales and
refurbishing them to add to his
stock. But scooters were his
mainstay.
By 2002, Livoti - who had
studied business law and crimi-
nal justice at C.W. Post, a private
college on Long Island - had
turned Fun Rentals-into a chain
and expanded it -to Fort
Lauderdale and Key West. His
customers ranged from raucpus
spring breakers to older travelers


with no scooter driving experi-
ence.
When the scooters were
-eturned, Livoti said he heard the
same lament over and over again
- the conventional scooters
were hard for novices to operate.
"Stability was a problem,"
remembers Livoti. "Young par-
ents didn't want to put a child on
the back of a scooter, and cou-
ples liked to sit next to each
other so they could talk. So I
started thinking about offering
something that was safer and
more -stable - a scooter that
anyone could easily drive."

Improved model
Livoti had heard about a
three-wheeled European concep-
tual scooter that was touted as
more stable than the standard
kind. He ordered one to try it
out, but he wasn't satisfied with
the safety features, so he decided
to manufacture one to his own
specifications.
In 2004, he and a partner,
Jerry Liu, took out lines of cred-
it from two local banks and
launched their new company,

SCOOTCOUPE / From 19

Panther Motors, to manufacture
a three-wheeled, two-passenger
scooter with a fiberglass body.
They called the vehicle a
ScootCoupe.
Livoti marketed the first-gen-
eration ScootCoupe to scooter
rental companies like his own,
and in 2005 his first production
run of '400 units, priced at
$4,800 each, sold out imniedi-
ately for a gross sales total of
more than $1.9 million.
Livoti is so confident the
ScootCoupe has what it takes for
success in today's market that
he's stepping up production.
The vehicle gives people
what they want - a highly fuel-
efficient mode of transportation
with technology, safety and
design features typically
reserved for cars. And, the
ScootCoupe registers high on
the cuteness scale.
"Everybody who. sees one
wants one," Livoti says.
Livoti and Liu are scrambling
to meet demand and plotting the
Sfour-year-old Tamarac compa-
ny's next move. According to
Livoti, Panther Motors has
racked up $1.4 million in sales
so far this year, and expects
another strong year in 2009.
Livoti said a key to his suc-
cess is that he relies heavily on
customer feedback in making
decisions about the business. It
was customers who gave him the
idea for the ScootCoupe in the
first place, he says, so it just
makes sense to keep the lines of
-communication open. Doing so
has led Livoti in a direction he
never imagined he'd go - man-
ufacturing vehicles for use out-
side the rental venue.

Product in demand
"People who had rented [a
ScootCoupe] while they were on
vacation started e-mailing me
telling me how much they liked
it," he said. "They said they
wanted one for personal use, but
they wanted to know if we could
make it a little faster."
Livoti and Liu switched the
original two-cycle engine to a
lower-emission, four-stroke,
49cc motor for use in rental
fleets. And they created yet
another model with a 150cc
engine for personal use. The
more powerful scooter has been
such a. hit that' Li'voti projects


that up to ,50 percent of Panther
Motors' 2009. sales will be
scooters for personal use.
Livoti said the smaller
ScootCoupe can reach 30 mph
and is classified as a
scooter/moped. It retails for
$6,300. Special pricing, is avail-
able for fleet buyers. The speed-
ier model, which retails for
$6,600, is classified as a motor-
cycle-type vehicle and can hit
speeds up to 55 mph.
, Both ScootCoupes can travel
up to .80 miles on one gallon of
gasoline, and Livoti said an elec-
tric model is on the drawing
board. While the ScootCoupe
sold for personal use can be
driven on short commutes,
Livoti said it is not recommend-
'ed for highway use.
The company is also building
fleets of ScootCoupes with GPS
capability and marketing them
to scooter rental companies in
resort towns. The cars are manu-
factured so that rental companies
can install, and program a GPS
receiver and map guide to lead
sightseers through a city tour
complete with audio and visual
displays. The scooters verbally
direct customers to historic sites,
attractions and restaurants, and
also play music and advertise-
ments.

Local debut
Livoti debuted the GPS
ScootCoupes at Key West Fun
Rentals in November.
"Customers love them. I
think the rental companies will
love them too, because we give
them a guarantee of exclusivity
in their area," Livoti says.
Panther Motors' six employ-
ees assemble the ScootCoupes
in their Tamarac facility from
Italian and Taiwanese parts. The
company is waiting for approval
to sell ScootCoupes in the
European Union beginning in
2009, and Livoti said the team is
working, overtime to meet the
anticipated demand.
He and Liu aretalking with
private equity groups in the hope
of securing additional growth
capital. The partners plan to hire
more workers once the door to
the European market has offi-
cially swung open to the
ScootCoupe.
"Next year, we'll be able to
sell in 22 countries of the
European Union and in
Australia," says Livoti.

Did we do justice to this center of law?


Freeman Justice
building stands
graceful, hidden
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

rT he strange-i thing about
the ne Frecnm;ni iJ:,-ii-
. Center is :h dilltcuili,
you'll have in Iindinlr it, I was on


the lookout for it all summer, and
never spotted it. And then one
day I came upon the back of
some large stone structure, and
yet, saw no easy way to come
around to see its face. But I was
maybe not applying myself.
Around the time of the dedi-
cation last month, I made a more
concerted effort, and found the
I .-ii.m i Justice Center, tucked


away behind the Monroe County
Courthouse on Whitehead Street
in Key West.
The Freeman Justice Center
was designed by architect Jose
Gonzalez, who was contracted
for a redesign of all of Jackson
Square - the one block owned
by Monroe County bounded by
Southard and Fleming streets
and Whitehead and Thomas
streets. The building of the
Freeman Justice Center was part


of a grand plan to renovate and
rebuild the county buildings in
that one block.
Gonzalez was removed from
the project about halfway
through. But the building's out-
ward appearance is still a reflec-
tion of his original design.
So we have Gonzalez, prima-
rily, to thank for a building that
is done in the federal style -
with large paned windows and
simple columns supporting the


facade. We have him to thank for
carrying this style all the way
through to the proportions of the
building and for the symmetry
which is so pleasing to the eye.
But the original exterior, it
should be noted, was not going
to be done in brick and stone,
but in some manmade material
that the county's project manager
likens to Styrofoam(!) The"ddi-

The Freeman Justice
Center, at 302 Fleming
Street, was designed by
architect Jose Gonzalez.
The original construction
contract was for $13.8 mil-
lion, but with added costs
(including $2 million for
brick and stone for the
facade and $1 million for
security upgrades) the
total cost of the project
was about $17.3 million.

The members of the Florida Keys Art Guild would like to express our thanks for allowing us the use of the Lorelei
property for our art shows. The setting is ideal for our shows. Without a setting of this quality it would be-impossible
to bring fine art to Islamorada. Carl and Cheryl Lindback for many years have allowed us the use of the Lorelei property
and assisted us with our shows in many ways. Their help is truly appreciated by all of us: We would also like to thank
everyone at Island Silver and Spice for letting 'us use their property for parking. You are all true partons of the arts.

At 1 p.m. it's "A Deal is a

a dream. Fed up with city life
and driving trains, he longs to
commune with nature and
write novels. But that's easier

Freeman Justice Center is graceful, hidden


FREEMAN / From 23

ton of real brick and real stone
added another $2 million to the
construction cost. But this
should be considered money
well spent. A county courthouse,
after all, is akin to a state capitol
building - housing some of the
most important offices of the
county seat.
But on to the critique.
Aside from the strange siting
of the new courthouse behind
another building, and not visible
from Whitehead Street, the build-
ing has another major flaw. After
coming through the security
checkpoint, where you can expect
to empty pockets and part with
your purse for a few moments,
there is just enough space left in
the "lobby" to slide sideways into
an elevator. It is really tight.
County engineer Dave Koppel
says they've already identified
this as a problem, and intend at
some future date to expand the
lobby so that people of all sizes
and shapes might move through
here and into the elevators with-
out getting bruised.
But to the details, which the
eye sometimes notices more
quickly than the big things.
The windows appear paned,
but are not really. That is, there
are not separate panes of glass,'
but one big piece, with those
plastic strips across to make it
appear paned. The eye is not
fooled.
And in the interior of the
building, there are places where
the moldings don't appear prop-
erly joined. The eye; is drawn to
these minor faults.
But the eye is. also drawn to
the beautiful details - to the
sidewalk mural that you walk
over as you e6nter'the front doors
--a circular mural of "Freeman
family buildings" drawn in white
pearly pigments. And the eye is
also immediately drawn to the

The big guys down low bat-

but Marathon High School's
Travis Leachman held the edge in
Tuesday's 57-53 overtime win
over Coral Shores.
Leachman, a 6-foot-5 junior
center, scored the only field goal
in overtime - then picked off a
Coral Shores pass in the final sec-
onds - to preserve the Dolphin
win in the regular-season opener
for both Keys teams.
"We didn't treat this like a

"We came up here to take care of
business and we did what we had
to do."


-Coral Shores' 6-10 junior cen-

Wells takes over the Lady Conchs


Softball coach
has experience
around the field
By DICK WAGNER
Key ter Contributor

Steve Wells, a longtime area
youth coach, has been named-
coach of the Key West High
School softball team, succeeding
David Gootee, who. stepped
down after two seasons, one of
which produced the Conchs' first


district championship.
Athletic director Peter Fraga
announced the move Thursday.
"It's the right time to jump
in," said Wells, who estimated
that he coached 95 percent of the
players on the current Conchs
when they were in youth
leagues.
Wells, a captain with the Key
West Fire Department, is 47
years old and, at 6 feet 2, two
-inches taller than his daughter,
Lauren, the Conchs' junior first


baseman and one of the team's
best hitters.
Gootee, a. hairdresser, said he
decided to devote more time to
his business, the Visible
Difference Hair & Nail Salon,
and also pursue other business
opportunities. He. took over the
team in 2007, succeeding Gloria
James, and led the Conchs to a
16-13 record, its first District 16-
4A title and its first appearance
in the Elite Eight. Last season,
the team was 8-12 and lost in the
semifinals of the district tourna-
ment.

Steve Wells
wants to inject
fun into the
Lady Conchs'
softball
season, but
he also wants
the team to
win, of course.


"It Was a great time and a
wonderful opportunity, but it's
time to move on," he said. "I had
a blessed group of young
ladies."
Wells, a native of Key West,
graduated from Key West High
in 1979 and was a pitcher and
third baseman on the baseball
team: He has coached boys ages
6 to 8 in Little Conch Baseball
for seven years and girls 5 to 14
in the softball league' for 10
years.
He said his philosophy paral-
lels that of former Olympic
pitching coach Hector Torres,
who said, "For girls to play
good, they have to feel good."
"We're going to have a little
bit of fun," said Wells, who
promised more of a baseball
style of play. "We're going to
have a good time, but I also want
to win."
Wells talked about Key West

being "logistically handi-
capped," noting that mainland
players can routinely go to the
best softball tournaments only
an hour from their homes,
whereas such trips are often too
costly for Conch players.
But he hopes to overcome
that with an experienced staff of
assistants - former Conch base-
ball coach Ralph Henriquez, bat-
ting coach Frank Ratcliff and
Alan Averette, who will return as
JV coach.
What is needed, though, is a
top pitching instructor - teams
don't go far without a top-flight
hurler, and the good teachers,
such as Torres, are in the Miami
area. But Wells knows Torres,
and hopes to get him to come to
Key West to conduct clinics.
Conditioning drills for
prospective players will begin
Monday, with tryouts in early
January.

Fins outlast Canes


HOOPS / From 31

Nyran Ross hit a pair of 3-point-
ers, as the Dolphins raced to a 35-
18 lead.
Coral Shores found its defen-
sive footing to slow the Dolphin
attack, then chipped away at the
lead to draw within 37-24 at the
break.
Coming out strong in the third-
quarter, the Canes got a three-
point play from point guard Zac
Stroup (17 points) and senior
Norman Dixon, the only experi-
enced senior on the Coral Shores.
roster, drove for two buckets.
Coral Shores outscored the
Dolphins 16-5 in the period, with
Marathon needing a three-point
,play by Leachman to preserve its
lead, 42-40, headed into the final
quarter..
Ross (14 points) hit a 3-point-
er arid Kitchen scored on a drive
as Marathon extended its lead to
51-46 midway through the peri-
od.
Freeman called for a slow-
down to limit the Canes' chances
at a comeback. It worked - for a
while - but a turnover at 1:23
led to a Sikora bucket, and the


Dolphins put up some ill-advised
shots.
"You don't have to shoot!"
Freeman bellowed..
The Dolphins missed two
shots in the final minute, and
Stroup hit a free throw with 4
seconds left to tie the score at 53-
53.
"We didn't work on the four-
quarters in practice so that's my
fault," he said later.
Marathon controlled over-
time, with Kenyatta Scott and
Dwayne Ellis hitting key free
throws. Coral Shores didn't score
in the four-minute bonus period.
"We were a little out of shape
at the end, and made a lot of
errors in the game," said
Hurricane assistant coach Rob
Stroup, "but all in all, it was an
awesome first game." We got
destroyed in the first half but
made a really nice comeback."
- Marathon (57): Travis
Leachman 16, Nyran Ross 14,

Canes still winless


Keynoter Staff


Coral. Shores High School
finished the first week of the
boys basketball season still look-
ing for its first win.
By Thursday, the grind of
playing three games in three
days showed as the Canes
slumped badly in a 58-23 loss to
district rival Gulliver Prep.
:"Growing pains," said head
coach Patrick Meyers.


Norman Dixon led the Canes
with five points. Ray Zikic and
Ryan Bush each had four.
The Raiders held Coral
Shores to 10 points in the first
half as' the team had trouble
working the ball to front-court
players Kyle Sikora (6-foot-10)
and Ray Zikic (6-8).
The Canes looked much bet-
ter Wednesday in a 55-48 loss to


Florida Christian. Sikora had 20
points while point guard Zac
Stroup scored 11. Dixon scored
eight and Rick Rodriguez four.

'2 steps forward, one back'


BylOICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Key West High School boys
soccer coach Jason Clifford had
several ways to describe his
team's Wednesday afternoon 7-0
loss to Edison in a District 16-
4A game in Miami:
"Just destroyed" ...
"Infuriating to watch" ...
"Frustrating to understand" ... "A
flashback to last year's disasters."
Coming off ties against highly
ranked Merritt Island and
Rockledge, the Conchs reverted to
a flat style of play reminiscent of
what they exhibited last season.
"We were playing well,"
Clifford said, "but this season


has been dancing two steps for-
ward and one step back. It's def-
initely better than last year, but
the inconsistency is crazy."
In falling to 2-3-2 overall and
1-1 in the district, the Conchs
never threatened against the Red
Raiders. "We had a couple of
shots in the first few minutes."
"Our lineup has taken on
some changes, but that is not the
reason," he said. "I think the kids
need to know-how to win."
After the game, Clifford told
his somber players, "You embar-
rass yourself, your coach, your
school.... There is nothing to be
proud of after a performance like


that."
Last season, inexperience and
youth were the main reasons for
a 6-16 record. This year, the
team is still young, but. has
shown it can compete against
quality opponents.
"The kids know. their job on
the field, they just didn't do it,"
said Clifford, who believed his
players were as fit and talented
as Edison's. "It was all on me
and the kids, getting ready for
the game properly and showing
up ready to execute."
The Conchs will play Belen
Jesuit in a district game at 8
tonight. at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium.

three goals.
"I gave her the green light to
control the game and she did
that," Landry said. He added
Fenech, Heller and junior Angela
Farello played well defensively
as the Dolphins shut Princeton
out for a second time this year.
Struyf notched the game's
first goal just over eight minutes
in. Landry said she got control of
the ball, made a few moves past
defenders and fired a 25-yarder
past the goalie for a 1-0 lead.
Junior Megan McKenna
scored unassisted from 10 yards
out to give the Dolphins a 2-0
lead heading into the half. Struyf
netted her second goal around 14
minutes into the second half.
Landry said she intercepted a
pass, took it halfway down the
right side of the field and outran
everyone for a breakaway goal.
The Dolphins were scheduled
to host Westminster Christian
School Friday but results were
not available at press time. The

SOCCER / From 31

Coral Shores' leading scorer,
Jasmine Paterson, and center
midfielder Cerene Arsenault
missed the game to attend a
national soccer event. The
Dolphins were also hurting with-
out offensive standouts Katie
Landry and Jasmine DeLaCruz;
both missed the game with
injuries.
After playing three quarters of
the game in net, Amber
Spaulding took to the field and
scored two goals for the
Hurricanes: Shelby Ragan and
Stephanie Lieteart each netted a
goal as well.
"In games like this, we try to
tweak the things that we'll need
when we play tough district
games like Gulliver and
Archbishop Carroll. For the most
part, we did pretty well,"
Hurricanes coach Arthur
Paterson said.
Before suffering their first loss
Wednesday, the Dolphins defeat-
ed Princeton Christian School on
Tuesday, 3-0. It was a rematch of
a Nov. 13 game that the Dolphins
also won, 4-0.

Fins double up Canes


DeFillips and
Bragan score
for winners
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Coach Jim Murphy said it
wasn't pretty, but the Marathon
High School boys soccer team
defeated Coral Shores 2-1
Wednesday at the Marathon
Community Park.
"We started off the game and it
was one-sided. They were taking
it to us pretty bad," Murphy said.
The Dolphins were particular-
ly struggling to contain Hurricane
junior Mike Hampson, whom
Murphy said controlled the ball
most of the game.
"He had the ball I'd say 50
percent of the game. I've heard
stories about how good he was,
and he is," he said. "What we did
was take a guy and just guard him
and the last 20 or 30 minutes we
started double-teaming him
because most of their offense was


going through him."
Hurricanes coach Jorge Bosque
said the team would need to play
better to defeat Marathon when the
squads meet again Jan. 22.
"Defensively, we're still very
young and made some mistakes
back there. We need to do a better
job there," Bosque said.
Marathon got on the board
first Wednesday, as junior James
Bragan scored 16 minutes in to
give the Dolphins a 1-0 lead.
Junior Matt DeFillips carried the
ball down the left side of the field
and crossed to eighth-grader
Ricky Ceja, who took a shot from
20 yards out.
Murphy said the goalie couldn't
control the shot and Bragan swept
in and scored off the rebound.
"I was a lot more comfortable
after we scored that goal because
we started playing," Murphy said.
In the second half, DeFillips
put the Dolphins up 2-0 by bend-
ing a free kick in from 10 yards
outside the right comer of the 18-
yard box.


Patrick Lofton scored just
before the second-half water
break to bring the Hurricanes
back within one goal, but the
Dolphins were able to hold off
Hampson and the Coral Shores
offense to earn the win.
On Tuesday, the. Hurricanes
blanked Archbishop Carroll, 2-0,
for the team's second win.
"It felt good to get our first
.shutout of the year," Bosque said.
Hurricane goalie Kiki Jaurequi
recorded the shutout in the net,
with help from the Coral Shores
defense. Jose Lujambio and
Lofton scored first-half goals for
the Hurricanes against Carroll, a
District 16-3A opponent.
Coral Shores (2-3) is sched-
uled to visit Gulliver Prep on
Wednesday. The next home game
is against Bay Point at 5:30 p.m.
Dec. 15.
Marathon (3-2) was scheduled
to host Westminster Christian
School Friday. Results were not
available at press time.

The intent to issue and

days, at South District Of-

ronmental Protection, P.
O. Box 2549, Ft. Myers,
FL 33902-2549.

The Department will is-
sue the permit with the at-
tached conditions unless
a timely petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is
filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, within
fourteen days of receipt
of notice. The procedures
for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.

A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's pro-
posed permitting deci-
sion may petition for an
administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain
the information set forth
below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in
the Office of General
Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.

Under Rule
62-110.106(4), Florida
Administrative Code, a
person may request en-
largement of the time for
filing a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing. The
request must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the
Office of General Coun-
sel before the end of the
time period for filing a pe-
tition for an administra-
tive hearing.

Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those en-
titled to written notice un-
der Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be
filed within fourteen days
of publication of the no-
tice orwithih fourteen
days of receipt of the writ-
ten notice, whichever oc-


110
Legal Notices
curs first. Under Section
120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, any
person who has asked
the Department for notice
of agency action may file
a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address
indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a pe-
tition or request for en-
largemert of time within
fourteen days of receipt
of notice shall constitute
a waiver of that person's
right to request an admin-
istrative determination
(hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated.
by another party) will be
only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Admin-
istrative Code.

A petition that disputes
the material facts on
which the Department's
action is based must con-
tain the following infor-
mation:

(a) The name, address,
and telephone number of
each petitioner; the
name, address, and tele-
phone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if
any; the Department per-
mit identification number
and the county in which
the subject matter or ac-
tivity is located;
s
(b) A statement of how
and when each petitioner
received notice of the De-
partment action;

(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are af-
fected by the Department
action;

(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material
fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate;

(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or
modification of the De-
partment action; (f) A
concise statement of the
ultimate facts alleged, as
well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and

(g) A statement of the re-
lief sought by the petition-
er, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner
wants the Department to
take.


110
Legal Notices
Because the administra-
tive hearing process is
designed to formulate fi-
nal agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means
that the Department's fi-
nal action may be differ-
ent from the position tak-
en by it in this notice. Per-
sons whosesubstantial
interests will be affected
by any such final decision
of the Department have
the right to petition to be-
come a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set
forth above.

In additional requesting
an administrative hear-
ing, any petitioner may
elect to pursue media-
tion. The election may be
accomplished by filing
with the Department a
mediation agreement
with all parties to the pro-
ceeding (i.e., the appli-
cant, the Department,
and any person who has
filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hear-
ing). The agreement
must contain all the infor-
mation required by Rule
28-106v404, Florida Ad-
ministrative Code. The
agreement must be re-
ceived by the clerk in the
Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station
35,Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, within ten
days afterthe deadline .
forfiling a petition, as set
forth above. Choosing
mediation will not ad-
versely affect the right to
a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settle-
ment.

As provided in Section
120.573, Florida
Statutes, the timely
agreement of all parties
to mediate will toll the
time limitations imposed
by Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes,
for holding an administra-
tive hearing and issuing a
final order. Unless other-
wise agreed by the part-
ies, the mediation must
be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of
the agreement. If media-
tion results in settlement
of the administrative dis-
pute, the Department
must enter a final order
incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Per-
sons seeking to protect
their substantial interests
that would be affected by
such a modified final de-
cision must file their peti-
tions within fourteen days
of receipt of this notice, or
they shall be deemed to
have waived their right to
a proceeding under Sec-
tions 120 569 and-
120.57, Florida Statutes.
If mediation terminates


110
Legal Notices
without settlement of the
dispute, the Departrment
shall notify all parties in
writing that the adminis-
trative hearing processes
under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, remain avail-
able for disposition of the
dispute, and the notice
will specify the deadlines
that then will apply fd"-'
challenging the agency
action and electing reme-
dies under those two
statutes.
