No Name sewers


County's process
to get them OK'd
si called flawed
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The state Department. of
Community Affairs on Friday
rejected Monroe County's plan to
sewer No Name Key - or at
least the way it's going about it.
In a final order issued Friday,
DCA rejected a land develop-


ment regulation the County
Commission adopted in June that
called for sewering the Lower
Keys island - but without pro-
viding commercial electricity
first.
The 43 homes on No Name
Key are powered by solar power,
generators or other means. They
also have to use cisterns or other
means of acquiring water, since

State rejects county vote


NO NAME / From 1

Authority doe.mn't have pipes run-
ning to No Name.
County Mayor George
Neugent said DCA's rejection of
sewers before electricity - or at
least the county trying to do that
without changing its land-use
plan - is the result of former
commissioners slowing down the
process by trying to speed it up.
"I do think we have an obliga-
tion to work with the No Name
Key residents on dealing with the
wastewater issue, and this was a
forced political move to try to get
something done for political
favors from those residents who
contributed heavily to Sonny and
Dixie's campaign," he said, refer-
ring to then-commissioners
Sonny McCoy and Dixie Spehar:
McCoy and Spehar were
defeated in their respective
Republican primaries in August,


What DCA's rejection means
is the county must now try to get
the land-use plan changed to
allow sewers before electricity
rather than -go through land
development regulations.
Changing the land plan is a
longer and tougher process.
The land-use plan is. consid-
ered the map of the community's
future, while land, development
regulations are the vehicles used
to get there.
Craig Diamond, with DCA's
Office of State Planning, said
besides not going through the
proper process, the county tried
to use language in the new regu-
lation that's not specific to No
Name Key. No Name is one of 22
areas in the Keys that's part of the
Coastal Barrier Resources
System.
"The way we read it, it could
have been applied throughout the
system. Even though we under-
stand the county's intent, the lan-


guage didn't get there in our
opinion," Diamond said.
County Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette said a
comprehensive plan amendment
would have been a better way to
pursue sewers on No Name, any-
way.
"It just takes more time
because you can only submit
them [to DCA'for .approval]
twice a year," Trivette said, with
the next cycle coming up in
January.
He said he'll propose the item
be added to Wednesday's County
Commission meeting agenda
because the county'has just 21
days to appeal DCA's rejection if
it chooses to do so.
A four-fifths majority is need-
ed to add the item because the
revised agenda has been released.
Wednesday's commission meet-
ing begins at 9 a.m. ait the
Marathon Government Center.

She's something like 82, 83."
Down the road at St. Francis-
in-the-Keys Episcopal Church,
1600 Key Deer Blvd., someone
broke in Wednesday night.
"Unfortunately, the offering
plate money was still here," sen-
ior warden. Peggy Jent said. "It
was less than $50."
She said that normally, the
money would have been taken to
the bank but through an over-
sight, it hadn't yet been deposited.
Jent says that whoever broke
in went in through a side window
in the sanctuary.
"We have real narrow win-
dows," she said.-"Somehow how
they just pulled two windows out
that someone was able to squeeze
through. 1 think it must have been
a teenager." '
Sextorn says detectives have
good evidence f 6m the break-in
at the Baptist church.
S"They clinibed across 'fmy


desk and stepped into my chair to
Sget down, and left a real obvious
print," he said. "I wear a size 9
and this was about a size 7. So it
was more likely a small person or
a teenager."
In addition to those two bur-
glaries, Thursday morning,
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
Deputy Deb Ryan was on patrol
and' saw a light on inside the
United Methodist Church, 280
Key Deer Blvd. Further investi-
gation revealed a broken window.
A church employee apparently
left the light on accidentally, but
the broken .window indicated
someone tried to break in, with
no success.
And later that morning, at
10:20 a.m., Deputy David
Chavka was dispatched to Lord
of the Seas Lutheran Church,
1250 Key Deer Blvd., where a
church employee discovered a
,window screen cut and evidence
that someone had tried to force
,the window open,, also with no
success.

'He was only 19' when killed in war


Traveling Wall
brings out
high emotions
By SEAN KINNEY
slinney@keynoter.com

SHundreds of people - stu-
dents, military representatives
and city andpolice officials -
turned out Friday morning for
the dedication of the traveling
Vietnam Veterans 'Memorial
wall exhibit at the practice
fields behind Key West High
School.
Mournful bagpipe music
and the smell of cannon fire
lingered in the air as residents
of. the Southernmost City
Searched more than 58,000
names of service men and
women who died in the
Vietnam War.
"He was only 19," Delores
Hamilton said, tears. in her
eyes. She and George
Hirschbiegel were on hand to.
pay respects to Hamilton's
cousin, Pfc. Peter McCoy
from St.-Louis, Mo.
'He stepped on one of those
mines," Hamilton said. "His
another still never got over it.
She keeps his room exactly the
same."
Hamilton has been waiting
for 10 years, since the Wall
last visited Key West, to lend
visual significance to her fam-
ily's loss. "It's a godsend," she
said.
Retired U.S. Marine Corps
Col. Gerald Berry was the fea-
tured speaker Friday, Berry,
who served in the military for
25 years, was. integral in air-
lifting Americans and foreign
nationals out of Saigon as the
North Vietnamese approached.
'The Saigon evacuation is
regarded as America's final
retreat from the war.
"I like to tell people I ended
the . Vietnam War," Berry
joked. On a more serious note,
"The U.S. military's mission,
among other things, is an ass-
kicking mission," Berry said.
"Unfortunately, right now
businesses is good."
Berry recounted a story of
piloting a helicopter to save a
group of soldiers who were
incurring heavy fire from the
Viet Cong near the border with
Cambodia. "I left aliittle bit of
my heart and a little bit of my


soul." Pausing, he said, "I
think about it a lot."
Berry lauded the efforts of
the military abroad; he has a
son serving in Afghanistan.
"War is sometimes neces-
sary, sometimes good," Berry


said. "But you always need a
military."
He.asserted that in recorded
human history, some type of
war has been ongoing 92 per-
cent of the time. Berry ended
by quoting Plato: "Only the


dead have
war."


Emotions ran
high Friday
when the
traveling Wall
was unveiled. It'll
be open around
the clock until
Monday.

The wall will be open 24
hours a day until Monday,
when it will be disassembled
at 8 a.m. and then leave the

Keys Opinion


What happens upstream

affects us downstream
"Drought parches much of the U.S., may get worse."
"Drier conditions persist throughout South Florida."
Headlines this week bumped off the front pages by the
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich scandal may prove a bit scarier
than another Illinois pol indicted for corruption.
A report just released by the U.S. Government Accounfability
Office raises alarm about drought conditions growing worse,
warning that 36 states can expect critical water shortages with-
in the next five years.
Some states are already there, including Texas, Georgia and
South Carolina, already facing their worst drought in years.
Water wars embroil Florida, Georgia and Alabama, widely
reported this year as Lake Lanier (the chief source of Atlanta's
supply) began drying up, bringing rationing and the threat of
federal lawsuits.
Lake Lanier feeds three rivers - .Flint-Chattahoochee-
Apalachicola - that divide Alabama and Georgia and eventu-
ally feed Apalachicola Bay.
Adequate fresh water is critical to a healthy marine life in the
Gulf of Mexico, impacting fisheries and Florida's coastal ecol-
ogy all the way down the peninsula.
In South Florida, a lack of rainfall in November brofight
alarms from the South Florida Water Management District,
which forecast drier conditions persisting through February.
Why is this important?
.Well, our drinking water comes from well fields west of
Florida City in Miami-Dade County. Those fields abut
Everglades National Park, which is already parched by drought
conditions further north and 'competing agricultural uses -
especially to grow sugar cane. A lack of adequate rainfall in our
dry season causes more harm to the Everglades and depletes
underground aquifers that we tap for our survival.
And survive is the operative word inthe reports issued by the
National Drought Mitigation Center, which redlines whole
regions facing water shortages: The Southeastern U.S., the
Southwest and far West.
Ironically, this time it's not global warming that gets the blame.
Rather, the experts who study these trends point to rapid popula-
tion growth and unwise agricultural choices as main culprits. .
Those definitely account for worsening drought conditions in
the west, where rapid urbanization in formerly desert regions
has strained water resources throughout -the mountain and
Pacific time zones.
There are things-we can do. Obey water restrictions. Use low-
flow showerheads, plant drought-tolerant landscaping, collect
rain-with roof gutters that feed rain barrels or cisterns - all
smart moves.
For others, log onto www.savewaterfl.com.
You'll be glad you did. So will our planet.

What the Keys really need is a beach for naturists'


EDITOR:
The decline in tourists to the Florida Keys-can
be attributed to many factors. One of these fac-
tors may be the lack of good market research.
Also, the lack of a designated naturist beach.
The Keys want to attract Europeans but have
no tropical beach where they can ehjoy
European-style clothing-optional naturist family
sunbathing.
Cuba and many Caribbean islands have such
beaches and the number of tourists to these natur-
ist beach-friendly places has increased. Cuba has
had a large increase in European tourists because
of its naturist beaches.
Miami-Dade County has had a designated
naturist beach for 18 years at Haulover Beach
Park. The naturist beach is a destination beach


seeing more than 1.4 million visitors annually.
More than 60 percent of these visitors are from

Miami-Dade County is the only county in
Florida that has had an increase in foreign
tourists. This is no coincidence. With Miami

Haulover Beach being for those that seek anrall-

Now it is Monroe County's turn to provide
tourists with a facility that they want as part of

Don't spend public's money on the waterfront


EDITOR:
Like church and state, I was under the
impression there was separation of pubic
government and private business, but that
line is rapidly disappearing;
The electorate has spoken in Monroe
County and has voted for change. I think the
issue of working waterfronts will prove if it
will'happen or we will be going down the
same road as before.
County officials have been crying we have
no money. The County Commission has deci-
mated the Public Works Department, reduced
the public library hours and refused many
requests- from the public for funding of pub-
lic projects under the mantra of "we're
broke."
Now along comes a private industry, com-
mercial fishing, crying about its failing busi-
ness and asking for a handout from the pub-
lic coffers. I don't know how many actual
dollars the county is attempting to put into
buying Gulf Seafood on Stock Island with
the fancy name "working waterfront." The
spin is "-Oh, it's mostly grant money." Well
folks, I got news for you: Grant money is
taxpayers' money.

Bridge to be reborn as part of reef?


Boot Key span

underwater
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It seemed a foregone conclu-
sion, but the Marathon City
Council finalized its decision
Tuesday to do away with the fail-
ing Boot Key Bridge.
The council decided to use
$400,000 in Florida Department'
of Transportation grant money -.
and match it with an equal
amount - to pay for the removal
of the metal part of the span.
The money was formerly ear-
marked by DOT toward engi-
neering and design costs for a

Each year since 1990, on or
near the first day of winter and
the longest night of the year, the
National Coalition . for the
Homeless has sponsored.
National Homeless Persons'
Memorial Day. It's designed to
bring attention to homelessness
- and the nation's failure to find
a solution to it.
'To mark the day, On Dec. 19,
the Florida Keys Outreach
Coalition for the Homeless will
dedicate a recently acquired
vault at the Key West Cemetery.
It will provide, a final resting
place for as many as 300 people
who die homeless and without
family or friends to claim their
remains.
Clergy associated with the
Outreach Coalition, in partner-
ship with the Southernmost
Homeless Assistance League
and Monroe County 'Social
Services, will also conduct an
internment service for 11 people
who recently died homeless or
indigent. The cremated remains
will be placed in a common
vault maintained by the county.
The service will begin at 3

nearly $10 million. The resolu-
tion the council passed Tuesday
requests it be moved to the fiscal
year 2010 budget and be used "in
connection with the demolition
of Boot Key Bridge."
"We'll be done with our part
and DOT will have it removed by
late 2009 or early 2010," Mayor
Mike Cinque said.
DOT . District 6& Bridge
Engineer Frank Guyamier said the
city has two options to dispose of
the removed portion of the bridge.
"If they want to send the
bridge to a smelter site where
they could melt the steel, it would
cost [roughly]. $700,000. If we
were to get permission to use it as
a reef and place it in the Moser
Channel Reef; it would cost
$500,000," he said. Moser
Channel runs under the Seven
Mile Bridge.
Guyamier said DOT will work
with the Florida Keys National


Marine Sanctuary and the
Department of Environmental
Protection to secure permits mak-
ing the old span an artificial reef.
He said the span - rusted metal
- can be sunk without being
cleaned or inspected.
"All the regulations say it's
one of the preferred alternatives
for disposal because it shows a
reuse," he said, adding removing
the span gives .the city time to-
consider what becomes of the
remainder of the bridge.
Cinque said DOT officials told
him the $400,000 would sunset if
not utilized. DOT agreed to trans-
fer the money for demolition if
the city agreed to match it, he
said.
In December 2007, DOT
declared the bridge a. hazard and
ordered it closed to traffic of any
kind, even pedestrian. Since then,
the council has made it clear in
several meetings the bridge
would not be repaired.
Cinque said he hopes the draw

through March.
On Dec. 5, the city hosted
numerous government officials
and agencies in an effort to
secure funding to purchase the
island of Boot Key itself. Plans
are to turn the island into an eco-
preserve tourist destination.
According to' Planning
Director George Garrett, Boot
Key contains 815 acres of man-
groves and saltmarsh, 270 acres
of submerged lands, 30 acres of
upland hammock, 10 acres of
developed land and five acres of
roads.


In April, the city released the
results of an appraisal of Boot
Key done todetermine 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.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
said the island's three parcel
owners are now willing to sell
and that ,City Attorney Jimmy
Morales will negotiate a price.
"It's the largest tract of that
kind of property in the Keys. If
we utilize it properly, it could be
a huge attraction for the city,"
Cinque said.

Dockside seafood


prices plummet


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer

Sagging prices for the Florida
Keys' main seafbod products
hardly have commercial fisher-
men in a merry mood for the hol-
idays.
Dockside prices paid for
whole spiny lobster have crashed
from nearly $8 per pound at the
peak earlier this year to less than
$4 per pound in some areas,
according to fishermen.
Fishermen reached by the
Keynoter this week safd they've
been paid from $4.25 to $5 per
pound - although some reports
from Key West said fishermen
have been offered as little as
$3.50.
A legal-sized Florida lobster
generally weighs one pound.
"Everybody is starting to
wonder what's going on," Key

Ernie Piton said. "It's been a hard

Keys' critical issues get aired


Communication
is the key,
Saunders says
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

)Because so. many issues
overlap with so many agencies
and groups, communication is
the No. 1 key to solving all that
ails Monroe County, says state
Rep. Ron Saunders.
"A lot of people are con-
cerned about the Keys, but a lot
of our issues overlap. It's
important to point out we have
people from all levels of gov-
ernment, as well as citizens and
chambers of commerce,"
Saunders said Wednesday at his
Future of the Florida Keys
Summit at the Marathon
Government Center.
"If you have a concern, the
people in this room are respon-
sible or they know who is," he
said.


Saunders' idea to call togeth-
er residents and local, state and
federal officials to focus on the
Keys' issues and try to find
direction to solve them evolved
from similar sewer summits he
convened last year with local
wastewater authorities.
Wednesday, Saunders said
one of his main goals is to iden-
tify issues and let residents
know who or what agency is
working to resolve it. He
stressed it's important to open
lines of communication - a
difficult task given the length of
the county.
A number of topics were dis-
cussed, including the Keys'
Area of Critical State Concern
designation, which gives the
state oversight of most develop-
ment in Monroe; environmental
issues; the elderly; sewer and.
freshwater issues; hurricane
evacuation; . improvements 'to
U.S. 1; and Florida. Keys
Community College..


One public speaker even
brought up the need for a cloth-
ing-optional beach in the Keys.
Every local government was
represented. Also attending
were Rebecca Jetton with the
state Department of Community
Affairs, Gus Rios with the
Department of Environmental
Protection, Anne Moorkill with
the National Key Deer Refuge,
Patty Ivey with the Department
of Transportation and Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority
Executive Director Jim
Reynolds.
Jetton spoke first, briefly
outlining DCA's Florida Keys
work program, which is
designed to address primarily
sewer construction and preserv-
ing ecologically sensitive land.
She touched on progress made
countywide installing sewer
systems.
"Throughout the Keys,
we've connected 15 percent of
the planned sewer constructions
we've had. It will take several
more years and we need at least

Woman jailed in theft
of $10K diamond ring

A woman accused of stealing
a'diainod ring from an elderly
itan and then pawning it has
been jailed for grand theft from a
person over 65 - a charge that
carries an enhanced penalty
since the victim is elderly.
'Anna Denise Clark, 52, visit-

man, with whom she was
acquainted, on Nov. 21. After
she left, he noticed the $10,000
ring -given to him by his wife
on their wedding anniversary. 50
years ago - gone.
She denied stealing it,
according to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office - but then two
days later called him, crying,
and told him she'd stolen it and
pawned it in Miami.
The victim drove to the


.pawnshop but workers there
refused to allow him to see it or
recover it, deputies say. So he
called the Sheriff's Office.
Working with Miami-Dade
police, Detective Garcia
arranged for the victim to pay
the pawnshop the $400 it paid
for the ring, and the ring was
returned to him. A warrant was
then issued for Clark's arrest.
She was taken into custody
Dec. 3 in Tavernier.


$336 million, so we have a huge
task in front of us," Jetton said,
also noting extra challenges fac-
ing the Keys.
"Monroe County has unique
constraints - water and power
coming form the mainland, one
road connecting us and our ...
requirement to evacuate within
24 hours" of a hurricane, she
said.


Saunders also announced
Wednesday he was reappointed
to the state Appropriations
Committee, which is in charge
of the state budget. Saunders is
now the ranking Democrat on
that committee.
"That's the good news. The
bad news is there's no money,"
-he joked.

Extra money
means' seven
more installed
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

An unexpected savings on
water main taps on Grassy Key
is allowing for the installation of
seven additional fire hydrants in
Marathon.
The city expected the taps,
which allow for a larger amount
of water flow, to cost $80,000.
But City Manager Clyde Burnett
said the cost has. come in at
$46,000.
"That.gave us $37,000 left
over out of the $100,000 that
was budgeted to put in more
hydrants," Burnett said.
Grassy Key has been without
fire hydrants until now because
of an inadequate water supply to


support them.
"The taps allow them to get
better pressure closer to where
they want to install those
hydrants," Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority spokes-
woman Colleen Tagle said.
The city appropriated
$200,000 to fund the project and
was expected to install 21
hydrants along with the two taps.
That total now jumps to 28,
which City Councilman Pete
Worthington said is much need-
ed.
"Why not put them all out?
We're going to spend it next
year; let's get them while they're
cheap and get them installed,"
Worthington said. "This town
could probably easily use anoth-
er 28, but this is a great start with
where we need to go."
Three of the seven new
hydrants will be installed on


Grassy Key, while the others
will be installed at the following
locations: the corners of
Yellowtail Avenue and Aviation
Boulevard, Coco Plum Drive
and U.S. 1, Avenida Primiceria
and on Sombrero Boulevard
near Sombrero Resort.
Taking steps to improve fire
safety has been a focus for
Burnett in the wake of a June 4
fire that destroyed the home of
entertainer Robert "Rocketman"
Hudson and his family. Many
residents witnessing the fire said
it took too long for Marathon
Fire Rescue to get water on it.
Burnett recommended adding
$400,000 to this year's budget to
make improvements to
Marathon Fire Rescue. That
included the hydrant program,
adding an employee to each
eight-hour shift and allowing for
a "Kelly Day" that gives fire-
fighters an extra 24 hours off
duty every threeweeks.

Key West commission
OKs 'Vandy' funding

The Key West City
Commission, sitting in a special
session Thursday, approved two
funding agreements from the
state totaling $2.6 million to help
fund the sinking of the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg.
On the advice' of City
Attorney,Sean Smith, commis-
sioners approved the first agree-
ment, for $1.6 million from the
Governor's Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic Develop-
ment - with the deletion of a
stipulation that the money be
returned to the state if the 520-
foot former military ship isn't
sunk as an artificial reef seven
miles off Key West as planned.


Commissioners approved a
second funding agreement for $1
million to be channeled through
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Stipulations were added to
both agreements that funds
would only be-accepted if a fed-
eral judge in Norfolk, Va., where
the boat is docked, agrees to lift
a lien placed on the vessel by
Colonna's Shipyard. The city
owns the Vandenberg.
'Gov. Charlie Crist spokesman
Sterling Ivey said contract nego-
tiations between Key West and
the state are continuing. "I'm
certain we'll reach an agreement
that the state and the city will be
happy with," he told the
Keynoter Friday morning.
The Vandenberg, as mandat-
ed by the federal judge, is set to
hit the auction block Wednesday,
where it would likely be sold for
scrap if the lien isn't lifted.

'Florida Sportsman'
wrong on fish closure

No decision on a proposed
grouper fishery closure for fed-
eral South Atlantic waters had
been announced by press time
Friday,
The, closure, originally
planned for Jan. 1 through


April by the federal South
Atlantic Fisheries Management
Council, now apparently can-
not begin until mid-January at
the earliest.
A Thursday online post at
the Web site of. Florida
Sportsman magazine caused
many readers to believe the
closure has been dropped,
council spokeswoman Kim
Iverson said.
That's not the case, she said.
U.S. Secretary of
Commerce Carlos Gutierrez
may still approve the closed
season for gag grouper, red
grouper and black grouper.
However, the closure cannot
begin until 30 days after the
fihal regulation appears in the
Federal Register. That hasn't
happened yet.
Gutierrez also could decide
to alter or cancel provisions of
the closure.
Florida Keys charter cap-
tains and many anglers asked
for fishing on black grouper
and red grouper to remain open
during the peak of the local
tourism season. The South
Atlantic council voted against
the Keys exemption.
State waters on the ocean-
side will remain open to
grouper fishermen this winter.

Key West
business frets
over future
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson gave a cross sec-
tion of. representatives from
Key West businesses the
opportunity to hash out their
concerns about the economy in
a roundtable discussion Wed-
nesday at the Doubletree Grand
Key Resort.
"Key West has been in a


similar situation before,"
McPherson said. "We need
each other. It's going to be the
residents that bring us through
this time."
One thing everybody agreed
on is that. tourism and related
fields like attractions, retail
and food and beverage are the
primary economic drivers in
the , Southernmost City.
Another point of consensus:
All of those industries are cur-
rently struggling, faced with a
worldwide recession and gen-
eral fear and uncertainty for
what the future holds.


"It's not going to be a great
year for anyone," said Jodi
Weinhofer, president of the
Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key .West,
predicting that visitor spending
will be drastically cut as well
as the duration of trips.
Charter fishing boat owner
and School Board Chairman
Andy Griffiths spoke to the
state of the charter fishing
business. "These folks are in
terrible shape like I've never
seen before," he said, adding
that he thinks charter boats
need to be integrated into the
tourism economy and treated
like any other attraction.


xiS


t


Griffiths, with the support
of McPherson, floated an idea
for the future of the as-yet-
undeveloped city property at
the Truman Waterfront, pro-
posing that Charterboat Row,
now at the Garrison Bight off
of Palm Avenue, be relocated
to the Truman property.
Current plans call for the
city's parcel to eventually be
turned into a marina and retail
space.
Griffiths said the current
location of Charterboat Row is
not practical, as captains must
pilot their rigs around the
island in a no-wake zone to
reach the ocean and the gulf,
which takes up to 30 minutes.
Captains, he pointed out, must
also navigate under bridges,
which disallows things like
tuna spotting towers and large
outriggers that are common-
place on a number of sport
fishing-boats.
Raymond Archer, Key West
Port Operations director,, said
the cruise industry has so far
been unaffected by the worsen-
ing economy. "The cruise
industry is doing fine," he said,
adding that ships are still com-
ing here despite a trend toward
the Mediterranean and Alaska.
"They very much value Key
West."
Archer also looked to the
future: "The day that Cuba
opens up, we're going to have
to build another wing on the
ferry terminal, I'm sure," he
said.
Sarah Knott, representing
the Key West Attractions
Association, said that her
industry depends on cruise ship
passenger dollars and that the
city needs to plan ahead to
accommodate larger ships.
The channel that leads to
cruise ship berthing was
dredged in 2004, at a cost of
$36 million and paid for by the
Navy, so that the ships would
not stir up silt. The Navy went
back in 2007 to re-dredge the
area, which was filled with
sand and other sediment by
hurricanes. The channel is 36
*feet deep and 300 feet wide.
"Today is the day for us to
look at it as a whole, and forge
a vision for the future,"
McPherson told those in atten-
dance Wednesday. "If every-
body gets together with that
vision, collectively we can see
better."

Council OKs economic board


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.comr


The Marathon City Council
has approved Vice Mayor Don
Vasil's plan to create an econom-
ic development commission -
but with wholesale changes to his
original plan.
Sensing limited support from
the council, Vasil pulled the item
from the Nov. 25 council meeting
agenda to make changes to it. He
said he was disappointed the plan
created so much controversy
among residents as to who would
play a role on the commission.
"Certain groups would like the,
council to appoint the. leaders;
certain groups would like it to be
appointed by other entities. I real-
ly belie. e it can be areal big help
to the city if we use the council's
ability setting policy to help facil-
itate the city's idea," Vasil said.
Vasil acquiesced Tuesday and
agreed it will be best for the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce to oversee the new
commission., His -fellow council
members agreed.
"I believe the council supports
the private sector coming up with.
solutions for our present and future
economic needs. They should be
kept in the private sector and not in
a formal board that would be
under" the Sunshine Law,
Councilritan Dick Ramsay said.
The Sunshine Law prevents
public officials from discussing


issues with each other in private
that they may later vote on. Vasil
wanted the board to operate in the
sunshine.
Since the chamber will
appoint members to the board
and oversee the panel, it's not
clear what role the city will play
in the commission it created.
Chamber Executive Director
Daniel Samess said the group
will begin meeting shortly and
will fall under the umbrella of the
already existing Marathon
Economic Development
Committee the chamber formed.
That group has focused on secur-
ing grant money and forming a
marketing plan for the city.
Samess said the version
approved by the council Tuesday
will have different objectives.
"One of the big things that
group will come up with is a
three- or five-year vision plan
that will better break down where
we want to be," he said.
Chamber President Britt
Myers told the council the com-
mission will concentrate on four
components: Economic develop-
ment, tourism, beautification and
education.
Myers named city Finance
Director Peter Rosasco, D'Asign
Source principal Franco D'
Ascanio, financial planner Peter
Chapman, deli owner Ralph
Lucignano and Realtor Brian


Schmitt as the chamber's choices
to head the panel.
Vasil suggested the idea for
the commission on July 22 after
perceived resistance from fellow
council members to expand the
City of Marathon Marina in
increments of 20 slips. He said
he's concerned the city isn't pay-
ing enough attention to its eco-
nomic future, which he believes
lies in Boot Key Harbor and the
marina.

New fire chief to become official


Brocato's deal
is $123,900
annually
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The , Monroe County
Commission is expected to
endorse Chad Brocato as the next
county fire chief on Wednesday.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi already announced his
choice at November's commis-
sion meeting in Key Largo, but
the commission's approval of
Brocato's four-year contract will
make it official.
He will earn $123,900 per
year plus benefits and a one-time
$5,000 moving stipend.
Brocato works at Deerfield
Beach Fire Rescue in Broward
County. His Keys contract, if
approved as expected, would take


effect Jan. 7..
He' said he's
familiar with
the county and
is ready to be
the next chief
of Monroe
County Fire
Rescue.
BROCATO "The Keys
are a very
desirable place to be in general.
I've been coming down there
since I was a boy and I have some
experience doing some teaching
in the Keys," Brocato said. He's
taught paramedic training courses
throughout the Keys.
Brocato holds a master's
degree in medical sciences and a
health sciences doctorate from
Nova Southeastern University.
He is also a certified firefighter,
emergency medical technician
and paramedic, and has complet-


ed numerous fire-related courses.
Brocato he'll be looking to
improve the department when he
arrives, but that there won't be
"change for the sake of change."
"The biggest issue in the first
three months is seeing where the
department stands. If things need
to be improved, that's the direc-
tion I'll take," he said.
Brocato says he intends to
improve fire and emergency
medical services training, as well
as fire officer training for his lieu-
tenants.
"I do know there was an
approval to have promotions for
lieutenants, and with that comes
responsibility," he said, voting
the importance of both fire sup-
pression and management skills.
Brocato also said he hopes to pur-
sue grants to address certain
issues, such as the county's prob-
lems with water supply to fight
fires.
Acting Chief Jim Callahan,


who had applied for the perma-
nent job, said he plans to contin-
ue working for the department.
He was hired nearly three years
ago as a battalion chief, but has
spent most of his time as the act-
ing chief.
"We've accomplished a lot as
an organization and I feel real
good about my time and I'm
looking forward to the new
chief," Callahan said.
Callahan first became acting
chief in 2006, when he took over
for the ailing Clark Martin Jr.,
who has since died of cancer.
Martin resigned in 2007 and
Callahan remained chief until
Wayne Hinnant was hired in
August 2007. But Hinnant
resigned in March citing a family
illness and Callahan once again
took the reins.
The County Commission
meets at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the
Marathon Government Center.

State to buy
180,000 acres
of sugar land
Keynoter Staff


The state's planned purchase
of U.S. Sugar Corp. property
near Lake Okeechobee won the
backing of advisors to the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary.
Members of the Sanctuary
Advisory Council said the pur-
chase of up to 180,000 acres
would help "the restoration of


adequate quality, quantity, tim-
ing and distribution of freshwa-
ter flows through the
Everglades ecosystem including
Florida Bay and the Florida
Keys National Marine
Sanctuary."
Islamorada conservationist
Mary Barley, a founder of the
Everglades Foundation, urged
passage of the resolution, which
endorses a plan forwarded by
Gov. Charlie Crist.
"It has taken visionaries to
move Everglades restoration,"
Barley told the advisory council


at its Tuesday meeting in Key
West.
The sanctuary also hosted a
daylong workshop last month in
Tavernier to hear experts speak
on the status of Everglades
restoration projects.
"Florida Bay and the coastal
estuaries continue their path of
ecological decline due to lack of
freshwater flow," according to
the resolution passed Tuesday.
"The successful acquisition of
these lands provides an
unprecedented opportunity pre-
viously unthinkable due to the
scope of the acreage required to
provide sufficient benefits."

First State's Big Pine


branch to open Monday


Sharp design

By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


It is a sign - a welcome
one - that all in the banking
world is not quite as universal-
ly dour as one would think
after watching television news.
First State Bank has spent
$2 million on a new branch on
Big Pine Key, set to open
Monday at the traffic light on
U.S. 1.
"We were very, very happy
to get that location," says First
State spokesman Don Lanman.
"It's prime location. It's so
convenient and it's so effi-
cient."
First State renovated the old
Century 21 building, where
Wilder Road and Key Deer
Boulevard meet U.S. 1, adding
two drive-through lanes that


0-
will allow customers to make
deposits 24 hours a day.
And they've taken a "green"
approach to the new branch.
"We could have razed the
building and bought a new
one," says Lanman. "But we
chose to keep it."
Green features include a
copper roof, copper having one
of the highest recycling rates of
any metal. There are also ener-

New branch opens Monday


FIRST STATE / From 17

ing across the parking lot, on
the southwest corner of the
Winn Dixie shopping plaza.
The bank planned to close
the annex for good on Friday
and move employees over to
the new building to start work
on Monday. The branch in the
Winn Dixie will remain open
for about another 90 days,
says Lanman. Branch manager
Shana Casey will oversee both
locations, and employees will


go back and forth between the
two.
For customers of First State
on Big Pine Key, the new
branch means not having to
park and get out to do your
banking. And it also means
having a place to meet with a
loan officer in a private office.
One loan officer will be mov-
ing to the new Big Pine branch
from another location to
accommodate potential
lenders.
Key West architect and
designer Michael Ingrahm, a


principal in the firm
MBI/K2M, did the redesign of
the new First State branch,
using millwork and other
details that his firm designed
for First State Bank when they
were hired to do design work
at the bank's main branch on
Simonton Street.
'Headquartered in Key
West, First State Bank of the
Florida Keys is a locally
owned and operated communi-
ty bank with 13 branches and
32 ATMs, throughout the Keys.

Festival of Lights


Hanukkah celebrates a long-ago Jewish victory
By SEAN KINNEY

____________'_____'" . r -.,"


Christmas is just under two
weeks away but the holiday that
gets a little less play this time of
year but is no less important
arrives four days earlier.
At 6 p.m. Dec. 21, members of
Congregation B'nai Zion in Key
West gather to celebrate the
beginning of Hanukkah at their
synagogue at 750 United St.
Rabbi Shimon Dudai said that
although Hanukkah has been
around longer than Christmas,
"Jews feel they can celebrate the
Christmas atmosphere. The fes-
tive atmosphere is shared by both
holidays."
Congregation B'nai Zion is the
oldest synagogue in South
Florida. It was founded in 1887
and the 121st anniversary is being
celebrated along with Hanukkah,
called the Festival of Lights.
At one point, it looked as
though the synagogue wouldn't
last this long.
On April 16, 2002, an arsonist
emptied a 5-gallon can of gaso-

line into B'nai Zion. The result-
ing fire destroyed the interior.
Officials estimated damages at
more than $750,000. It took two
and a half years for the house of


worship to reopen.
No one's ever been charged in
the fire, but the rebuilding of the
synagogue illustrated the congre-
gation's resilience and showed

why it's lasted so long.
In fact, congregation member
Alan Solomon says Jews were
among the earliest successful
merchants in the Keys and have
been influencing Keys life for
more than 150 years.
At Hanukkah's start, the con-
gregation will enjoy traditional
Jewish holiday fare such as pota-
to latkes with applesauce and sour
cream, salad nicoise and dessert..
"Everybody enjoys a nice fried
something," Dudai says. Surprise
entertainment is also planned.
Hanukkah is an eight-day fes-
tival that begins at sundown on
Dec. 21 and continues until sun-
down Dec. 29. Each night, the
Festival of Lights is observed by
lighting a candle on the menorah,
one more each successive day,
until all eight candles are burn-
ing.
"It has a certain amount of
beauty," Dudai says. "It brings
joy to the place."
Hanukkah commemorates the
victory of the Maccabees over the

Dudai explained that the
S nans were trying to force
Greek, culture -onto the
Maccabees
"The Jews of the da\ decided
thank you, but no thank you."
- When the temple returned to
the hands of the Maccabees, there
was only enough consecrated oil


to burn for one day. Hlio, e' er. the
oil managed to bum for eight
days, and Hanukkah celebrates
that miracle.
"It's a form of thanksgiving,"
Dudai says, "to praise God for
the victory that took place, the
victory of so few over many. We
thank God for the rmracles. It
was amazing."

Annual Key West
Boat Parade to
light up harbor
he holiday season in
Key West is decidedly
different than it is in
northern climes.Take the
island's 18th annual Lighted
Boat Parade - set to sail into
the Key West Bight and
Harbor on Saturday, Dec. 13
at 8 p.m. Visitors and locals
are invited to gather dockside
for this tropical tribute to the
Christmas season.
The Gerald Adams
Elementary School Steel Your
Heart Band kicks off the fes-
tivities at 6 p.m. on stage at
the Schooner Wharf Bar, fol-
lowed by the Robert Douglas
Band with Raven Cooper.
The real stars of this
parade, however, aren't the
entertainers. They're the
scores of delightfully decorat-
ed motor and sailing vessels
that compete for bragging
rights, $20,500 in prizes and
a free raffle valued at over
$4,000.
The prizes work to spur
local boat owners to reach for
their artistic peaks. Long
hours go into stringing.gar-
lands and icicle lights from
bow to stern and coming up
with original designs. Past
winners have included boats
flanked by dolphins jumping
in and out of the water, as
well as manatees, pelicans
and sea horses.
Look for palm trees' and
conch shells - not spruce, fir
or pine - aboard the boats.
In last year's boat parade,
the grand prize winner

by Mike and Peggy

Independence was decked out
with a large Christmas tree,
dolphins leaping, a barrel of
rum and Santa Claus turning
into Captain Morgan. Coming
in second was Sunset'
Watersport's Party Cat and
capturing third place was the
always-popular Miss Quin
Key. Captain Bankester said
this year he's working on an
animal band theme, with ani-
mals rocking around a blue
Christmas tree.
Jerry Fowler from Big Pine
Key will be back for his sec-
ond parade appearance in his
green, solar-powered 16-foot


boat, and Dr. Fred Covan and
the members of Congregation
B'nai Zion will proudly dis-
play a nine-foot menorah on
Covan's 20-foot center con-
sole boat.
The judge's stand will be
set up at the Schooner Wharf,
at the bottom of William
Street, where hot apple jack,
eggnog and other holiday
cocktails will be available.
Children can catch candy
and beads thrown to specta-
tors from ship decks, while
viewers of all ages can
admire the beauty of the boats
lighting up the harbor.

Girls hoops
teams locked
in tie for first
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


In its most important game in
years, the undefeated Key West
High School girls basketball
team will play Monsignor Pace
in a first-place battle at 5:30 p.m.
today at the Brother Felix
Gymnasium in Opa-locka.
Pace, a perennial power, and
the Conchs, who began to shed
their doormat status last season,
are tied atop District 16-4A with
4-0 records.
"This is the game our girls
have been waiting for," said Key


West coach Glenn Hayes Sr. "I
expect a good, fast-tempo
game."
The Conchs are coming off a
69-47 victory Wednesday over
Ronald Reagan in Miami, a win
that elevated their overall record
to 5-0. They are averaging 63.8
points a game and allowing an
average of only 38:3.
Balanced scoring and a
harassing defense continue to be
vital to the team's early success.
Against Reagan, junior Chelsea
Storr scored 19 points, freshman
Shanyia Watson had 16, sopho-
more Ja'Taure Mathis 15 and
senior Daphne Barnett nine.

Jackson, Sardina
lead Marathon
past Palmer
By RYAN McCARTHY

The Marathon High School
girls basketball team split a pair
of games last weekend and
earned its first victory of the year.
The Dolphins defeated Palmer
Trinity 37-26 last Saturday after
falling 38-18 to Dade Christian
School the day before. The team
is now 1-3 this season.
Coach Amanda Hirschauer
said the Palmer game was a
reversal of recent fortunes for the
Dolphins, who have struggled
defensively and been turnover-
prone on offerise. '


"We drastically reduced our
turnovers throughout the game
and our transition offense was
really good. We had a lot of con-
versions off their turnovers," she
said. The Dolphins held the
Falcons to just four points in both
the second and fourth quarters.
Marathon was led by seniors
Latrice Jackson and Vanessa
Sardina, who scored 11 and 10
points respectively. Sophomore
Alaina Davis also scored 10
points despite sinking just two of
14 free throws.
"I don't think they let a
rebound get by them in the sec-
ond half. They definitely all had
double-doubles,"' Hirschauer
said.

With the season's first boys
basketball win within reach,
Coral Shores High School sen-
ior Norman Dixon reached out
and grabbed it.
Dixon drove to the hoop for
a layup with 27 seconds left
Tuesday and made it a three-
point play with a foul shot to
ice the 56-48 win over-visiting
Barrington Christian of Florida
City.
"It feels great" to be on the


winning side, said Dixon, who
had his strongest game of the
winter with 13, points and 13
rebounds.
Coral Shores started the sea-
son 0-4 - including two close
but disappointing losses to-"
local rivals Marathon High
School and Key West High
School.
"We wanted to be county
champs but that didn't work
out," said Dixon, the most
experienced varsity player on
this year's squad. "We kept
practicing hard and played a
good game [against
Barrington]."

Jackson has been freed up
offensively this season with the
return of senior point guard
Marquita White.
"It's nice now having two
-point guards sd they can help
each other out," Hirschauer.said.
Sardina also played well
against Dade Christian, leading
the Dolphins with seven points.
Hirschauer said Sardina played
well defensively and pulled in a
number of rebounds that led to


easy baskets.
Jackson had six points while
White and eighth-grader Jessica
Forest each had a basket.
Hirschauer said Dade Christian
was on their level talent-wise,
but the Dolphins struggled with
their half-court trap defense.
"We just turned it over too
much and that cost us the
game," she said.
The Dolphins were sched-

Defense dooms Dolphins


Undefeated
Spartans top
Marathon
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School
boys basketball coach Kevin
Freeman says he doesn't like
an early trend of home losses.
The Dolphins dropped their
second straight -home game
Tuesday to a strong Miami
Country Day team that was 7-
0 coming in, and fell to 2-3
this season in the process.
Freeman said the Spartans are
good but that the Dolphins
aren't playing well and lack
toughness early on.
"We are not a physical team
and we have to start defending
our turf. We've got three home
games in the 'next week, so
hopefully we'll be able to get
some wins," Freeman said.
Freeman said Marathon
was hurt when center Travis
Leachman got into early foul
trouble. He'd scored the
Dolphins' first two baskets
and is the team's strongest
inside presence.
The Spartans' top scorer,
Alex Rudolph, equaled the
Dolphins. output in the first
quarter by himself and the
Dolphins fell behind 24-12
early. Freeman said the
Dolphins struggled defensive-
ly against a solid shooting

"We neglected to get back
on the fast break and when we
did, we'd foul them and they'd
make the layup. We just
weren't playing well on
defense, not challenging shots
or anything," Freeman said.
The Dolphins trailed 37-20
at the half, but in the third
quarter made a run to close the
gap. Leachman returned to
score eight points that quarter
and junior Kenyatta Scott had
two layups as the Dolphins
closed to 47-36.
Marathon cut the lead to


four midway through the
fourth quarter, but a failure to
box out allowed the Spartans
to score off of four consecu-
tive offensive rebounds. The
lead ballooned to 12 and the
Dolphins were unable to come
back, losing 62-45.
Leachman finished with 15
points and 15 rebounds and
Scott had seven points and
three rebounds. Freshman

Conchs lackluster in blowout


Nothing goes
right against
Mater's Lions
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


SBuoyed by a two-game -win-
ning streak, including a' victory
Monday at Coral Shores, the
Key West High School boys bas-
ketball team entered' Mater
Academy's gym 'ifi Hialeah
Gardens with considerable con-
fidence Wednesday afternoon.
The Conchs- left with a dis-
heartening 65-33 loss, their sec-
ond District 16-4A blowout road
loss of the young season. And it
has still been more than three


seasons since Key West has won
a district game away from home.
"We had watched their films,
but they didn't do what -we
expected," coach: Paul Davis
said of the experienced -Lions,
who beat the Conchs twice last
season. "They came out running
- and they just outran us. Their
big men beat our big men down
the court.".
The Conchs (2-2 overall, 0-2
in district) cut an early 14-point
deficit to seven, but were
outscored, 32-4, in the third
quarter.
"We missed shots, didn't run
our offense and looked con-
fused," Davis said. Key West
shot 33 percent from the field


and only 13 percent from 3-point
range.
Senior Vladimyr Sibera, who
had scored 71 points in his past
two games, led the Conchs with
only 10. "He was just cold,"
Davis said
Keith Valdez was next with
eight points, Arthur Adams had
five, Nick Scammacca scored
four and Jeff Sullivan, Christian
Stewart and Christian
Rodriguez-Sanchez each had
two.
It was a quiet bus ride back to
Key West for the frustrated play-
ers. "A lot of them apologized to
me," Davis said.
But, he added, the team came
out hard at practice Thursday,
preparing for Monday's 6 p.m.
district game at Reagan.

Victors rain down on Fins


Marathon
loses 4-2 on
sloppy field
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A flat performance on a
short, rainy field Thursday
led to a disappointing 4-2
boys soccer loss for Marathon
High School.
Coach Jim Murphy said the
team failed to capitalize on
repeated scoring opportuni-
ties against a Miami Christian
School squad it defeated 7-4
Nov. 17. The boys are now 4-
4 this-season.
"To start off the game, it
was pouring for the first half
and our team played like we
were the only ones being
rained on," Murphy said, not-
ing the Victors' improved
play this season.
"We were going into it
thinking that we should have


won it, but they played good,"
Murphy said. "They con-
trolled the ball really well and
they were passing it around
really well."
Miami Christian scored
first around 10 minutes into
the game after a diving
Dolphins defender missed the
ball and allowed a Victors
player to dribble in from the
18-yard line and score an easy
goal.
The Victors added a sec-
ond goal before the first-half
water break when a free kick
near the baseline was headed
in from eight yards out for a
2-0 lead.
Murphy said the Dolphins
played well for the rest of the
first half, sparked by senior
Danny Valerdi.
"Danny was playing
defense and I put him at for-
ward and he got it rolling,"
Murphy said.
The Dolphins drew within


one when Valerdi crossed a
ball that was controlled by
junior Matt DeFillips, who
put it in from six yards out.
Marathon had numerous scor-
ing opportunities leading up
to the half on a field Murphy
said was "between 70 and 80
yards" long.
"The field was so short you
could basically shoot from
the half line," he said.
After building momentum
to end the first half, Marathon
came out flat in the second.
The Victors scored their third
goal early off a free kick from
midfield and went-up 4-1
barely a minute later.
"Once it was 4-1 we went
flat again," Murphy said.
The Dolphins drew within
two at the 25:00 mark on a
goal by eighth-grader Ricky
Ceja, but again they failed to
capitalize on scoring chances
and couldn't close the gap.
Marathon is scheduled to
visit Palmer Trinity School
Monday at 4 p.m.


Soccer Conchs back

on winning track


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor -

It had been Nov. 15 - seven
games ago - since the Key West
High School boys soccer had
won, and now, with 20 minutes
left in the first half Tuesday at
Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium, the Conchs were lead-
ing St. Brendan, 3-0 .
The whistle had blown for a
water break on the warm and
windy afternoon, and the Conchs
gathered by their bench - not for
water, because no one had
remembered to bring any - but
to hear their excitable coach.
"Learn how to finish a game,"
Jason Clifford, in his customary
blue T-shirt and green shorts, told
his players. "Learn how to score
and be aggressive. Let's go and
take a game. Put them away."
And then the Conchs went out
and treated a small crowd to five
more goals as they defeated the
overmatched Sabres, 8-0. The


game was called before halftime
because of the Florida Hig
School Athletic Association's
eight-goal mercy rule.
Fernando Mendieta, one of
five players to score, had three
goals as Key West - rated 59th
in the state among 4A schools by
DownSouthRankings.com -
improved, to 3-5-2 overall and 2-
3 in District 16-4A.
Alfofso "Bubba" Arteaga
scored two goals, one on a header
off a cross by Trevoi Gordon.
Monnel Azard, Zach Harden and
Gordon each scored one, Gordon's
on a corner kick from Cale Hartle
that made the. score 8-0.
Keeper Jeff Wright had a lone-
ly day in goal, but saved the few
shots St. Brendan attempted.
The Conchs, who played late
Friday night at North Broward
Prep, will be at Ransom
Everglades at 3 this afternoon.
