Monroe County Social

didn't need to read the recent
declaration that the United States
is officially in recession to know
it was true.
For the past several months,
she and her staff have seen evi-
dence of that firsthand as more
people than ever have contacted
her agency for help meeting their
basic needs.
Graham and others struggling
to provide resources and hope for
Monroe County's most vulnera-

an increase in requests for help
with rent, energy bills, prescrip-
tion medications and food. They
say they are counting on caring
Keys residents to open their
hearts and wallets and give a lift
to their less fortunate neighbors,
not only during this holiday sea-
son but also into the potentially
lean months ahead.

ELECTION / From 1

Brook's claim that Attorney
General Bill McCollum won't
remove Slaton because Slaton
isn't even in office yet.
If the venue isn't changed and
she's still on the case, Platzer will
hold a trial conference Dec. 29 in
Miami and the trial Jan. 2 in Key
West.
Vanden Brook sued Slaton
and others on Nov. 24, seeking to
have his election as a Monroe
County Circuit. Court judge set
aside and either have her declared
the winner or have a new election
scheduled.
Slaton's attorneys as well the
attorney for Elections Supervisor
Harry Sawyer and the county
Elections Canvassing Board have
tried to get Vanden Brook's law-
suit thrown out or, instead, heard
in Leon County Circuit Court,
where the state Division of
Elections is based.
But Slaton wants Platzer, a


Miami associate administrative
judge, tossed out, too. Slaton
wants her removed from the case
because one of his lawyers
worked for Platzer's election
opponent 14 years ago. He says
that means Platzer can't be
impartial in his case.
She disagreed in a ruling last
Thursday, and stayed on the case.
That's when he decided to go
to federal court. His motion to
have Platzer removed says "a
stay of proceedings is justified in
order to allow the appellate court
to consider the merits of the drs-
qualification motion."
Vanden Brook called Slaton's
move to have Platzer dismissed
"judge shopping," telling the
Keynoter, "That's just playing the
system."
Vanden Brook's lawsuit was
reassigned to Platzer after
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge David Audlin recused him-
self from the proceedings.
Meanwhile, on Monday, Chief
Assistant Monroe County


Attorney Bob Shillinger joined
*Slaton's lawyers and filed a
motion asking that Vanden
Brook's lawsuit be moved to
Tallahassee.
The legal battle started on
Election Day, when Slaton was
declared the winner by nine votes
out of more than 32,000 cast.
What followed were three
machine and manual. recounts of
provisional and absentee ballots.
When those were done, Slaton
was still ahead, but now by four
votes, 16,463 to 16,459. That's
when Vanden Brook sued.
In addition.to Slaton, Vanden
Brook named as defendants the
Monroe . County Elections
Canvassing Board (judges Ruth
Becker and Wayne Miller and
Tax Collector Danise Henriquez)
and the state Elections
Canvassing Commission (Gov.
Charlie Crist, Lt. Gov. Jeff
Kottkamp and Attorney General
Bill McCollum).
Slaton is scheduled to take the
bench Jan. 6.


Belt tightens for Keys families


SOCIAL SERVICES/ From 1

Graham, said most applica-
tions for assistance in the past
were from single people, includ-
ing the elderly and disabled.
But now, more families with
children are having trouble mak-
ing ends meet. Applicants typi-
cally blame job layoffs and the
higher cost of day-to-day neces-
Ssities for their financial Woes.
"We certainly have seen an
increased need for support," said
Graham, whose agency's mission
is to reduce social and economic
dependency among Monroe
County residents. "The .biggest
needs are for electric assistance
and rent, with prescription med-
ications coming in a close third."
Graham said her division's
work was made more difficult by
October budget cuts at the coun-
ty level that eliminated funding
for rental assistance.
"It's really tough when we
have to say no to people who
need help," Graham said. "But
we always say, 'Maybe we can't
provide it for you, but we'll help
you find someone who can.' We
don't send anyone away without
a referral."
Those referrals go to a variety
of 1 charitable organizations


throughout the island chain that
offer help with everything from
transportation, food, housing and
health care to disaster assistance,
youth mentoring, violence pre-
vention and the rehabilitation of
juvenile and adult offenders.
Linking people in need to the
appropriate support provider is
the job of Lou Hernandez, chief
executive officer of the nonprofit
Helpline Inc. Founded by the
Zonta Club of Key West in 1982,
Helpline's trained volunteers pro-
vide free, round-the-clock crisis
intervention and referrals to any
Monroe County caller in need.
Hernandez said he has noticed
an uptick in calls from families
asking how to access local food
programs, and he's heard that
some people are living in cars.
"My biggest concern is for
those without a family support
system nearby, which describes
many, many people in the Keys,"
Hemandez said. "As more people
are laid off, it's one of those esca-
lating things. They become
trapped here because there's no
money to get back to their fami-
lies on the mainland. Many folks
are only a paycheck away from
homelessness, and I'm not just
talking about single people. I'm
talking about families who are
trying, to put food on the table and


pay rent, and they've got two or
three kids."
Graham said there is one
bright spot on the horizon for
Keys families in need. Funds
from the state's Low-Income
Home Energy Assistance
Program will arrive in the com-
ing weeks, and this year's alloca-
tion is close to $300,000, which
is three times the usual amount to
help pay power bills.
"We've always got people on
a waiting list for LIHEAP funds,
but we'll eliminate the waiting
list this year," Graham said. "It'll
be great."
"There has been such an
increase in calls for food, rent
and other essentials," Gouldy
said. "I've never seen it this
bad..."
Dianna Sutton, president and
chief executive officer of the
Community Foundation of the
Florida Keys, said her organiza-
tion works to encourage and build
philanthropy among the county's
residents. She said local nonprof-
its need support more than ever,
and she's confident that support
will come. She said statistics
show that nationwide, charitable
giving typically remains stable
and in some cases, even increas-
es, during times of recession.

SAILING INTO CHRISTMAS: The Schooner Wharf Captain Morgan Lighted Boat Parade lit
up Key West Harbor Saturday night, as it does every year. There was a Christmas boat
parade in Blackwater Sound in Key Largo the same night, and another one in waters of Key
Colony Beach Sunday night.


Rosasco: No special rules


HOTEL / From 1

Old Town Marathon. Also
included in the plans are 18,657
square feet of commercial space
for retail or a restaurant, as well
"as a swimming pool and 34-slip
manna.
The Marathon resident and
certified public accountant was
adamant his position with the city
played no role in the commis-
sion's decision to grant him the
variances. He said the project is
exactly the kind the city needs
and the commission judged it on
its own merit.
"I'm not asking anyone to
bend any rules for me. I'm taking
a lot of risk moving forward with
doing something that others
aren't doing right now, including
my neighbors," Rosasco said,
referring to the adjacent Faro
Blanco Marine Resort property
owned by the Spottswood Cos.
"What I'm doing is something
-this community needs. It has to
be done right in this market or it
won't succeed," Rosasco said.
"We do have a couple of architec-
tural features which are meaning-
ful and inherent in the Hampton
Inn design'and they do protrude
over the 37 feet."
Garrett, who recommended


denial of the variances, said he
did so based solely on the
requests made by Rosasco's
development team.
"I think what the Planning.
Commission was trying to say is
they are architectural features.
They were comfortable in saying
the project is a good project and
that it will look good," Garrett
said.
The city code includes exemp-
tions for architectural features,
but does not specify what defines
them, Garrett said.
Planning - Commission
Chairwoman Morgan Hill said
the variances were granted main-
ly because they dealt with roof
design and not inhabitable
spaces.
"A Hampton Inn has a certain
shape that defines them. It's a
branding issue," Hill said. "When
you're looking at a building 400
feet long, you really can't have a
flat roof; that would look atro-
cious."
Even Rosasco admits he was-
n't expecting the commission to
grant all the variances his team
requested.
"The architects came up with
a concept that they love, but
frankly was higher than I thought
was going to be acceptable," he
said. "We compromised at 46 feet


and that was fine with me."
Garrett said the only way the
variances will come before the
City Council is if an appeal is
filed with the city. He said he
believes any resident can make
the appeal.

Keys Opinion


Cape Air deserves

Middle Keys support

In two days, residents in the Middle Keys will have another
opportunity to experience direct air service from Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
Cape Air, in a business venture with Continental Airlines,
begins regularly scheduled passenger flights from Marathon to
Fort Myers.
Departures at 7 a.m., 1:35 p.m. and 4:10 p.m. give folks a
chance to make easy connections in Fort Myers, which -
while not Miami or Fort Lauderdale - provides a wide array
of air carriers and connecting flights.
This will be the fourth or fifth try at restoring regularly sched-
uled passenger service since American Eagle discontinued its
flight schedule in April 2000.
Most recently, Delta Airlines launched direct service to
Atlanta in'February 2007, only to pull up stakes five months
. later, forfeiting fare guarantees pledged by Monroe County and
private businesses in Marathon.
Monroe County Airports Director Peter Horton said Cape Air
has made no commitment beyond April, which is the traditional
end of the snowbird season as winter residents head back north.
Cape Air has been serving Key West International Airport for
more than 15 years, so it's familiar with the seasonal swings
that define Keys tourism. Cape Air got its start on Cape Cod,
which is a summer season vacation Mecca, so it should be
familiar with this sort of thing.
What will prove critical, however, is public acceptance of
Cape Air's nine-passenger Cessna 402 airplanes, which are real
workhorses for short-hop and commuter airlines in other parts
of the country.
-One Marathon business owner, checking booking options
and schedules for Fort Myers, was startled to learn she could
fly from Marathon to Europe making only one connection in
Fort Myers.
At $225 for a round-trip ticket from Marathon to Fort Myers,
Cape Air competes with the time and cost of getting to either
Key West or Miami International. And with free parking at
Marathon's airport, that substantially reduces cost comparisons
for anyone who drives to Miami and pays $15 per day for park-
ing. A weeklong trip adds $105 in parking fees, plus gas costs
and five hours of travel time to and from Miami.
For Cape Air to succeed, it won't need the big chamber of
commerce welcome with fire trucks, food and public speeches
on Friday. It needs to see paying passengers who find the con-
venience factor of flying into Marathon to be unbeatable.
Now, it's up-to us and our visitors.

Government should borrow to finance sewer systems


EDITOR:
Having watched and listened to the discus-
sions. on wastewater in the Florida Keys has led
me to this letter.
I have had the honor and privilege to be in
local government in a city where a legacy has
been established by a group of forward thinkers-
that used personal and business experience to
create a local government second to none.
Common sense and reason shows that the
health and safety of the citizens of Monroe
County and its assorted municipalities is a prior-
ity not to be ignored due to the inflow and infil-
tration from current wastewater systems.
Economic times such as these dictate think- .
ing out of the box. County and municipal gov-
ernments will never get enough money if the
state and federal governments are the only
sources of funding.
Borrowing money for the initial cost of capi-
tal projects is nothing new to county and munic-


ipal governments. A tax bill should be estab-
lished to help spread out the cost of such an
undertaking. When the system is functioning
and a budget established, then a flat charge can
be determined for maintenance and reserves for
equipment in the respective systems.
The county and respective municipalities
involved need to codify procedures to protect
the citizens and prepare for the. future in waste-
water management.
The average homeowner should not have to
pay for the immense cost of the establishment of
a functioning wastewater system, as it is the
county and municipalities' responsibility to set
up the system, absorb the cost initially and
recoup that money in a gradual process from the
taxpayer in a fair assessment of the use of that
system, not the cost.

Finance Keys nonprofits, not TraumaStar


EDITOR:
We're in a global recession. Our local econo-
my is tourism and real estate.
With the real estate slump, foreclosures and
6.7 percent unemployment (the U.S. lost half a-
'million jobs in November) we're in a lose-lose
situation.
Whether we fall into a depression or not, we
have yet to hit bottom, and the road for sure will
get more rocky. I would like to prepare for the
fall instead of making things worse.
Concerning the TraumaStar air ambulance
operated by the Sheriff's Office, the county will
consider funding this emergency medical service
for anyone needing to be whisked away from the
Keys to the mainland during an extreme medical
-crisis. We are told that those who have insurance
with a deductible will not be billed and those who
do not have any insurance will not have to pay.
It sounds great to me because there are not
many of us who have any health insurance. But
how many of us will use this, and how many will
be stuck paying for it?
This program will cost millions, and will be
paid by additional taxes. I like the idea of putting
our money together to get more. But the reality
is, we already have another emergency health
transportation company called LifeNet, which
provides this service at no cost to us taxpayers,
but to the person who gets carried away. The
chance of me or you needing this service is
almost as good as either of us winning five num-
bers in the lottery.
I think the campaign to support TraumaStar
was misleading. I heard many say that not fund-
ing the TraumaStar would be a life or death situa-
tion, that LifeNet would leave the Keys once they
stopped making money. But both are not true.
LifeNet is available and the owners offered to
sign a contract that would commit their stay in the
Keys (they never said they were leaving). And the
vote was very divisive between the Keys.
I say we prepare for the rocky road. If any
money is to be paid by taxpayers, then spend it
for something we all can use. For the past two


years, our medical local nonprofits, which:were
to receive matching funds, were denied the
amount of money they requested from the county
because the budget needed to be cut. '
But if we are considering to afford a one-time
ride to the mainland while the rest of the journey
(hospital and doctor bills) will surely bankrupt or
make poor the rider, then why not financially
support something that will be used more often
and help us all, like funding the nonprofit groups
that can help us as times get tougher?
I know I will need the services of
Womankind, the Red Cross, the Rural Health
Network, etc., and if I'm paying for something,
I'd like to know I'm gonna use it. To fund some-
thing that I will most likely never use is just
wasteful.
Diane Beruldsen
Stock Island

Editor's note: The County Commission has
voted to create two taxing districts to fund
TraumaStar.

Deputy shows the Christmas spirit


EDITOR:
Saturday was another day for me
to be with Santa at Kmart. I pulled up
in front, down the way from the front
door and began unloading all my
musical equipment into a cart to set
up inside to play and sing for Old
Saint Nick and the kids.
Being so excited about the fun of it
all and exhausted from carrying in all
the stuff, I began-to start playing to the
kids and forgot my little blue Honda,
with all the happy stickers about lov-
ing Marathon and wanting one world,
one peace and supporting the arts, the
police, Pigeon Key, etc. Here it was
left in the fire lane, in which Santa
drove up on the fire truck.
Of course I am in the back of the
store with the Christmas trees, singin'
and playing' and waiting for Santa, for-
getting about my car. Now, I know
and my friends know I would never
intentionally leave my car in the fire
lane, but the policeman on duty had -


Why is it so hard to
EDITOR:.
The darkness of prejudice festers
in our community and must be illumi-
nated for our common welfare. We've
all heard about it, and I always
thought that there must have been a
mitigating circumstance, that it wasn't
really the way it seemed. This time,
however, a little brown dog-and I
were the victims.
He will, eventually, find a happy
home and family; but I shall wear the
scars for a while yet.
I grew up as World War II was
ending, on a self-contained farm in
southeastern Ohio, before strip mines
decimated the land. I was tending and
training our animals, including cats
and border collies, before I entered
first grade. They were my playmates
and confidantes, as well.
I have reared two children. One is
a graduate of FIT and the other holds
a Ph.D in physics from the University
of Illinois after taking an undergradu-
ate degree from Harvard. My own
degree is a master's in art education
from Ohio University. I have taught
public school and freelanced in vari-
ous fields of art and related matters. I
have advocated for any cause I
deemed worthy and supported innu-
merable charities with hours of volun-
teering.
In 1993, my husband of 40 years
and I bought property on which we
still reside.
I am not an extraordinary person,
nor do I aspire to be labeled VIP. I
advocate equal rights under the law
even regarding code enforcement and
Historical Architectural Review
Commission decisions, and that prej-


not a clue. One of the employees of
Kmart came running up to me making
gestures of writing on her hand. I
finally realized what she was saying
and rushed out front.
Almost having a heart attack, I
begged the policeman to please for-
give. I truly didn't mean to leave my
car there. I even went into telling him
of my aneurysm and three strokes I
had a few years ago and I don't
always think fast about some things
sometimes.
My husband Bob and I really don't
need a ticket right here at Christmas
time or anytime. So I just wanted to
say thank you, Mr. Policeman, who-
ever you were, for not giving me a
ticket, because I really didn't mean to
leave my car there. I will never do it
again.
Happy holidays to our Sheriff's
Office.

adopt a shelter pet?
udice in any guise should be eradicat-
ed.
But on a recent Monday, the tsar
of dogs dredged up several conflict-
ing and hitherto unheard of excuses-
why I am not worthy to adopt an ani-
mal from the Florida Keys Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
While knowing that I wanted both
a certain cat and dog, and after telling
me that my experience and attitude
would cause her to want to give me
any animal, she made these misstate-
ments: They never allow anyone to
take more than one animal at a time,
and a 30-day waiting period is their
rule. So I chose to take the dog first
since he seemed shy and dominated
by the other dog in his pen, and the
earlier I could allow him to feel
secure in his own fenced yard and
begin his training, the better.
Another rule that was proffered:
They never allow any animal to be
adopted until they have observed its
interaction with every member of the
household, even temporary ones.
I admit to being shocked and hor-
rified to learn so graphically that a
person with such insensitivity and
disregard -for honest communication
with our citizenry holds the power to
make such outrageous decisions and
enforce them. I question her motives
in making such choices regarding the
welfare of our animals. No wonder
their pens are so full.
I also apologize for not really
trusting the veracity of prior com-
plaints about this subject, which
should be investigated soon.

Can you feel the spirit?
EDITOR:
I so enjoy the anticipation of Christmas
approaching and, along with it, the buildup
of the spirit of the holidays that increases
with each day.
Christmas music is in the air every-
where you go, stores and businesses dis-
play their choice of decorations. Despite
no snow and cold, Christmas 2008 is fast
approaching.
To me, the best ingredient for this time
of the year is celebrating with family and
friends.
On Dec. 14, the artists of the
Bougainvillea Art Gallery in Marathon
shared an "arty" holiday open house. As
one of the participating artists, it was a


catch suspect
and professionalism to solve this crime.
This is the second time in the past two
months that the Key West Police
Department has efficiently apprehended a
robbery suspect within a few hours of the
crime itself. We sincerely appreciate and
respect their professionalism and feel very
fortunate to have such an outstanding police
department to protect and serve our com-
munity.
The Key West Police Department is a
credit to our great city. Thank you again
and well done.

wonderful turnout of people with the
artists there to greet our art lovers. Lots of
artwork was discounted and folks were
able to buy that special piece for them-
selves or someone in their life.
All the artists brought food and we had
a very full table of delicious hors d'oeu-
vres with drinks of hot cider, mimosas,
wine and beer..
For me, spending time with my fellow

to say hello was the feeling that I love, and
for me is the spirit of Christmas.
Thanks to all who shared some time
with us, and Merry Christmas.

City starts process to rewrite land plan


Streamlining
permit process
a chief goal
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West's Planning Depart-
ment will present administrative
changes to the city's rate-of-
growth ordinance at Thursday's
Planning Board meeting in what's
being called the first step toward
the complete overhaul of the city's
1993 comprehensive plan.
"It's like chipping away at a
mountain," Planning Director,
Amy Kimball-Murley said.
One goal is to streamline the
building permit allocation system
and eliminate confusing language
in the existing document, cited in
a string of lawsuits between the
city and the Southernmost House
over transient rental licenses.
In February, Judge Wayne
Miller ruled that the city's ROGO
ordinance had expired and was
no longer valid. The city immedi-
ately invoked an emergency zon-
ing-in-progress designation that,
in essence, put a stop to develop-
ment with the exception of work-
force housing.
Over the past year, city plan-
ners1 and the City Commission,
held a series of workshops to
publicly vet major problems in
the allocation system and create a
legal mechanism for the Planning
Department to provide annual
reports on progress to the City
Commission.
Kimball-Murley , said the-
changes, if approved, would
essentially streamline the permit


allocation process; "No one
should be putting up with wasted
time and effort."
During the series of public
workshops, consensus formed
that problems arise from the
city's dated comprehensive plan,
drafted in 1993.
"It's probably our most critical
issue," Kimball-Murley said.
The comprehensive plan
establishes land-use regulations,
zoning, districts, residential and
commercial density standards
and guidelines for long-term
development and growth man-
agement.
Another element that further
complicates the plan comes with
hurricane evacuation times man-
dated by the Florida Department
of Community Affairs.
. Kimball-Murley said the com-
prehensive plan will be subject to
revisions reflecting a city that has
undergone extensive change' the
past. 15 years.
Planners are already working
on a part of the ordinance that
manages the transfer of transient
permit allocations from one prop-
erty to another. Kimball-Murley
said the underlying principal of
license transfer is to "encourage
conformance with zoning dis-
tricts and encourage permanent
housing."
Environmental group Last
Stand sued the city in 2006 after
the City Commission passed a
resolution allowing developer
Pritam Singh to transfer, via sale,
more than 60 transient licenses
from his Parrot Key property on
North .Roosevelt Boulevard to
properties on Simonton Street


owned by developer Ed Swift.
Last Stand contended that
transfer of rental licenses from a
commercial district into a resi-
dential district was illegal and has
a detrimental effect on the quality
of life of permanent residents.
Kimball-Murley, citing the
economic recession, said the city
receives few applications to
transfer licenses. But, she said,
the language needs to be amend-

ed because it does not currently
address on-site redevelopment.
When a formerly one-bed-
room unit is rebuilt as a suite,
which is what happened at Parrot
Key, there should not be 'leftover
licenses, she said, explaining that
added bedrooms boost potential
occupancy and, in turn, add to
evacuation clearance times.
Last Stand President Al
Sullivan said "redevelopment is

the issue and that's going to come
up with redraftingg] the compre-
hensive plan."
Kimball-Murley said She said
redevelopment - as opposed to
new development - will prove to
be a pressing issue. "I think it's
going to be back to smaller units."

special . session at 6 p.m.
Thursday at Old City Hall on
Greene Street.

"We've got plans under way
for a welcome reception for the
inaugural flight. We want every-
one to be able to ask questions,"
Paros said. "We have a good feel-
ing this will be a dependable air-
line, and it'll be up to us to make
it work."
The county pulled out all the
stops to welcome Delta Airlines
in February 2007 - including
fire hoses, a jam band, hundreds
of onlookers, blowing conch
shells and a host of officials. But
Delta was gone just five months
later, citing a runway too short to
allow the airline to fill planes to
capacity.
Prior to American Eagle dis-
continuing flights in April 2000,
carriers including US Airways
Express, Corn Air, Gulfstream
and Florida Air have served the
airport. But Paros said he
believes Marathon may have
found the right fit this time
around.


"I think this is the right size
for a startup operation. I believe
their dependability rate out of
Key West is ... over 98 percent,"
he said.
Cape Air has been flying into
Key West International Airport
for more than 15 years and has a
fleet of nearly 60 nine-passenger
Cessna 402 airplanes.
Cape Air has a code share
agreement with Continental
Airlines and will actually be
operating as Continental
Connection. Tickets for passen-
gers aboard Cape Air flights out
of Marathon will read
Continental Airlines.
On Sept. 17, the County
Commission decided to give
Cape Air a $250,000 revenue
guarantee, without which the car-
rier would have walked away.
The final hurdle for Cape Air
was lifted in October when the
U.S. Transportation Safety
Administration gave the OK for
passengers to be reverse-screened
in Fort Myers.

'Vandy'


auction


set for


today

Last-minute
talks are held
to forestall it
Keynoter Staff

If you're in the market for a
520-foot decommissioned mil-
itary vessel that 'could be used
for scrap or, perhaps, to.scuttle
as an artificial reef, the USS
Vandenberg could be for you.
It was scheduled to hit the
auction block at the federal
courthouse in Norfolk, Va., at
10 a.m. today to satisfy a $1.6
million lien.
A bank consortium consist-
ing of BB&T, First State Bank
and Orion was in settlement
agreements with Colonna's
Shipyard, where the vessel is
stored, on Tuesday, trying to
strike a deal and stay the auc-
tion.
Colonna's cleaned the ship
of contaminants and in
October, the shipyard and
three contractors 'got a lien
placed against the vessel,
claiming they're owed $1.6
million by the New Jersey-
based Reefmakers, which is
overseeing the scuttling proj-
ect. The city of Key West actu-
ally owns the Vandenberg,
A.C. MacGraw, spokes-
woman for BB&T, the lead
lender, declined to comment
on the settlement talks
Tuesday.
Plans to scuttle the
Vandenberg off Key West as an
artificial reef and dive destina-
tion have been kicked around
the past 12 years. The organiz-
ers have funding pledges to the
tune of $8.2 million from 16
different local, county, state
and federal entities.
When the lien was filed, the
bank-lending group . had
already cut off funding due to
escalating costs.
Officials at Colonna's did
not return phone calls on
Tuesday.

Si


different than the reality.
Residents at Calusa 'wonder
how the Sheriff's Office could
have such a differing account of
the incident than residents and
the surveillance video.
"I am probably one of the
biggest supporters the Sheriff's
Office has. I couldn't work this
kind 'of businesses without
them," property manager Maria
.Padron said. "I just don't under-
stand how these things got into
the report. It's just Wrong."
In the report, Deputy Tony
Conde stated he and Sgt. Michael
Digiovanni arrived at the camp-
ground's front gate at 10:15 p.m.
and waited five minutes until a
resident granted them entrance.
A press release sent by
spokeswoman Deputy Becky
Herrin stated it took the deputies
10 minutes to enter the gate. It
also stated several firefighters
had to wait at the gate, and
implied that contributed to the
spread of the fire.
However, the campground's
security video shows the two
deputies arrived at 10:30 p.m.
and waited 1 minute and 37 sec-
onds before entering the park.
The video then shows a main-
tenance man letting in a fire offi-
cial in a car, who waited about 27
seconds at the gate. An ambu-
lance and a volunteer firefighter
in an SUV followed without any
delay.
At 10:36, a Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative truck-and
another volunteer firefighter in
an SUV passed through the gate
without stopping.
At 10:39, the maintenance
man locked the gates in the open
po~iition.: Which. occurred before


any firefighting apparatus arrived
on scene. Two fire engines
arrived seconds later and did not
stop at the gate.
A third fire truck arrived -at
10:48 and stayed in the parking
lot, away from the gate, for about
two minutes before driving into
the park.
Herrin stated in a release
Tuesday the wait reported by the
first deputies on scene was
wrong.
"It appears as if our deputy
was mistaken in his estimate of
10 minutes in his description of
the delay at the gate," Herrin said.
"It was, I am told, more like a
couple-of minutes. We regret the
error."
The report goes on to state
that once inside the park, fire-
fighters were impeded by about
50 tenants who screamed profan-
ity, continuously crossed police
lines and attempted to fight the
fire with their own hoses. Some
had to be treated for smoke
inhalation, the report said.
About a half-dozen witnesses
all agreed the crowd was no more
than 20 people and the only per-
son interfering was on off-duty.
Miami-Dade firefighter who was
staying there:
Resident Lew Bersani said he
attempted to move his truck and
get his wallet from his trailer that
was right next to the fire. He said
police initially prevented him,
but then let him move his truck
when the fire was much closer to
his trailer.
Several calls to Key Largo
Volunteer Fire Chief Sergio
Garcia were not returned by
press time Tuesday.

Navy could help with land


Military says
use compatible
around airfield
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


i Monroe County may have
Found a way to come up with $3.5
million in funding needed to pur-
chase Gulf Seafood, an 8.1-acre
Stock Island working waterfront
property.
Talks are very preliminary,
county Grants Administrator Lisa
Tennyson says, but the U.S. Navy
approached her about applying to
be part of the .Department of
Defense's Encroachment
Partnering Program.
Tennyson said it's too early in
the process "for people getting
expectations raised and it appear-
S ing to be something it's not."
"We need money to finish the
Project and they asked for a let-
ter" expressing interest in the pro-
gram, Tennyson said. "We have
ongoing encroachment debates
with the Navy and when they saw
erience this project with Gulf Seafood,
Ion. thru they said it could be eligible for
ame day this program," she said.
In November, the county
.applied for $7.5 million in state
. grants through the Stan Mayfield
Working Waterfronts Program to
purchase the property. The inten-
tion is to use it in perpetuity to
house comunercial fishermen.
S' The.NiLJk flt:l 'grant allows


$7.5 million of the $300 million
allocated to Florida Forever by
the state Legislature to be used to
acquire working waterfront. It's
possible one project can receive
the full amount.
According to Naval Air
Station Key West spokesman Jim
Brooks, the encroachment pro-
gram is a way to ensure compati-
ble uses in areas surrounding mil-
itary installations.
"Military air stations like
Boca Chica and the Department
of Defense want to limit
encroachment around facilities.
There are some things around a
facility compatible with high
noise and other things that aren't,
like residential living," Brooks
said.
The county is competing with
projects across the state for the
Mayfield grant, but it will com-
pete with projects nationwide for


Encroachment Partnering dollars.
Congress has raised the budg-
et for the program from $12.5
million in fiscal year 2005 to,
according to NAS Key West
Capt. Steve Holmes, $60 million
thisyear.
* "If the Navy can partner with
the county to make sure [Gulf
Seafood] stays working water-
front, it's a win-win for every-
one," Brooks said, noting it
would ensure a compatible use
for the property.
The state Department of
Community Affairs will rank
applicants for the Mayfield grant
and should Gulf Seafood be
ranked first, the county would
prepare a detailed business plan.
Twelve , applicants statewide
requested a total of $28.4 million
in funding.
According to the county, Gulf
Seafood owner WSG Sand Lake
L.P. will consider a sale of $11
million to $12 million.

for subdivisions that allow
them.

Keys Karts
Mile marker 97.3

Do not expect standard
golf carts at Key Karts of
Key Largo, says owner Steve
Salzman.
"The carts here are
unique," he said. "They're
high quality - and they
move."
Keys Karts move fast
.enough to haue gained popu-
larity in communines and
subdi, isions w here carts are
permitted on residential
streets.
, A few can be fully state-
licensed to use on roads with
speed limits no higher 35
mph.
And although Keys Karts
look factorN fresh, all are
fully refurbished Club Cars
or EZ-Go carts.
Salzman replaces and
upgrades just about every-
thing except the chassis:
motors, tires, seats, uphol-
stery and even the body
shell. "People ask if I have
used carts," he said.
"Actually, I don't own a sin-
gle new one."
Salzman, a 30-year Keys
resident, opened Keys Karts
a year ago. "I planned to
take it slow but things got
away from me," he said. "It's
been crazy."
Prices range from $2,000
to a custom top-end model at
more than $6,000.
Hours are 8:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. Monday through

Nature's delicate balance


As most people know, nearly
everything in the Keys bumps up
against our sensitive environ-
ment, whether it's limits on con-
struction, limits on fishing or
protecting critical habitat for
endangered species.
That's the thinking behind the
appropriately named Delicate
Balance of Nature, a program
comprising a series of weekly
seminars that focus on our ecol-
ogy - from animals to plants to
the marine environment.
They're a terrific way for
newcomersto the Keys to under-
stand their new home, or for old-
timers to brush up on things that
might have been forgotten.
All take place from 7:30 to
8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the
John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park Visitors Center at
mile marker 102.5 ocean, and all
are free, courtesy of the Dagny

BY RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Injuries and a brutal mid-
seasorf schedule have equaled
a -four-game losing streak for
the Marathon High School
girls soccer team.
After opening the year with
eight straight victories, losses
last week to Palmer Trinity
School, 4-1, and Carrollton
School, 1-0, have the Dolphins
now sitting at 8-4.
Coach Lynn Landry won't
make excuses for the girls'
performance of late, but a
number of their top players
have succumbed to the injury
bug. That includes top offen-
sive threats Katie Landry and
Jasmine DeLaCruz, as well as
defensive standout Kelley
Struyf and goalie Julietta
Pezzella.
Add Marina Kay Wiatt to
that list, as well. The freshman
took what Landry called a
"vicious" hit against
Carrollton last Wednesday
when she collided with a
defender.
In the previous day's game
against the perennial district
frontrunner Falcons, Landry
said the girls started slowly
but were able to stay in the
game.

remain in Class 3A (schools with
student populations between
1,291 and 1,739) and also stay in
District 16. But the district will
consist of only two other teams
- Belen and Mater Academy.
"That's great," said Key West


athletic director Peter Fraga.
"That makes us almost a lock for
the playoffs."
In the past, the top two teams
in the state qualify for the state
playoffs, and the FHSAA hasn't
said if, in only a three-team dis-
trict, that would change to just the
first-place team qualifying.


Last season, 16-3A was com-
posed of Key West, Belen, Mater,
Pace, Reagan and Edison. Pace
- whom the Conchs defeated
only twice in the past 19 years -
was moved to District 8-2B and
will join other private schools
including Gulliver Prep,
Archbishop Carroll and Ransom
Everglades. Reagan will move to
16-4A and Edison to 8-2A.

Wrestling Conchs are 5th


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Led by senior Greg Garcia,
who won the 119-pound class,
the Key West High School
wrestling team finished fifth in a
14-team tournament Saturday at
Bishop McCarthy High School in
SFort Lauderdale.
Four other Conchs placed in
the tourney - freshman Max
Llama, second in the 112-pound
division; senior Ben Covan, sec-
Soind n'' .135;.': senior O'scar


Fernandez, fourth in 125, and
junior Casey Parks, fourth in 130.
"We did surprisingly well,"
said coach John Moeller. "I
thought we'd get killed because I
took a lot of second-stringers
because of grades, illness or per-
sonal reasons."
Garcia, who has bounced back
from being disqualified at last
season's district tournament,
dominated his opponents. "He is
imorepleeinered as a senior, more


focused on controlling his
weight," Moeller said.
Garcia and Fernandez have
improved greatly as seniors and
are now, Moeller said, wrestling
with sophistication they had
lacked. "They're more confi-
dent," he said. "They're starting
to use moves that they've been
taught the last three years."
The Conchs will wrestle in a
tournament Saturday at Barron
Collier High in Naples, with
Moeller once again driving the
school bus.

The news lifted the spirits of
Conch coach Jerry Hughes, who
likely will continue as coach next
season despite his continuing dis-
appointment in the work ethic of
his players. "Hey, we might have
a chance now," he said.


If the Conchs would make the
playoffs, they would first play a
team from 15-3A, also a three-
team district with Miami
Jackson, Miami Norland and
Westland Hialeah.
Marathon will move from 16-
2B to 8-1A and join Archbishop
Curley, Dade Christian, Florida

Conchs finally get road win


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


It was ,a long time coming,
but the Key West High School
boys basketball team finally
won a District 16-4A road
game.
With five players scoring in
double figures, the Conchs
used a new fast-break offense
to sweep past Ronald Reagan,
87-45, Monday night in
Miami. They hadn't won a dis-


trict game away from home in
more than three seasons -
since before Paul Davis
became coach in 2005. "It was
pretty cool," Davis said.
The 87 points were also the
most the Conchs have scored
in a game in the Davis era.
Nick Scammacca led the
way with 20 points; Vladimyr
Sibera, who was averaging
23.8, scored 16; Josh


Berkenmeyer had 15; Keith
Valdez 12; Peralt Annulysse
10; Arthur Adams 8; and Jeff
Sullivan 6.
Key West was called for
only three fouls. "Our boys
played really well underneath
the basket," Davis said.
The Conchs (3-2 overall, 1-
2 in district) will play at
Marathon at 7:30 p.m. Friday
before leaving for Fort Myers
for a holiday tournament.

half. We were sluggish but we
played pretty good defense,
which has been our motto so
far," he said.
The Falcons , outshot
Marathon 7-1 in the first half,
but surrendered only one
breakaway goal 28 minutes in.
The Dolphins would tie the
score at 1-1 just three minutes
into the second half.
Wiatt fed a ball to Landry,
who made a run down the cen-
ter of the field. Landry fired a
shot after a give-and-go that
Wiatt reflected into the net.
But coach Landry said the
team tired late in the second
half, which led to three Palmer


goals. It didn't help when
Pezzella was injured and had
to leave the game, forcing
,Struyf into net and Landry
back to sweeper.
On Wednesday, Landry said
Carrollton's game plan was
obvious from the start.
"Their coach wanted to be
physical and they did a good
job of getting us out of our
game," he said. It was a
rematch of a 3-1 Dolphins vic-
tory Nov. 5, when Marathon
played most of the game with
only 10 players on the field.
The game's only goal came
after Pezzella had a foul called
on her inside the 18-yard box
in the first half. Carrollton
converted the. penalty kick to
take a 1-0 lead into the half.


Landry said the girls played
much better in the second half,
but were unable to capitalize
on scoring opportunities.
"The girls stepped up and!
outshot them 6-3 in the second
half; we just couldn't score a
goal," he said. "The heart my
team showed in the second
half was great. They didn't
fold because I think they want-
ed us to fold being so physical
with us."
The Dolphins- were sched-
uled to face Coral Shores High
School Tuesday, but results
were not available by press
time. The team's last game
before the Christmas break is a
Thursday visit to Island
Christian School. That game is
scheduled for 4 p.m.

Spaulding team
wins Gurgiolo

Never \a\vering from the
game plan. Kenny Spaulding
and his Caribsea team land-
ed 17 sailfish, all with bally-
hoo, to score \ icton at the
Don Gurgiolo Sailfish
Classic presented by ESPN
Outdoors Salrm after Series,
the season-ending Redbone
event that took place o\er
the weekend off Islamorada
Spauldmg attributed his
team's success to the confi-
dence they had in the bally-
hoo. Other competitors used
a variety of methods includ-
ing kitefishing and sighrfish-
ing. but Spaulding and his
crew resisted temptation and
wiselh stuck with what was
\working.
After staking a comfort-
able lead Saturday with 12
sailfish, the Caribsea team
followed up Sunday ith
five
Spaulding was joined by
Becky and TJ Hopson, w ho
" ere recently marned. T.J
Hobson took top angler hon-
ors, landing 13 of the 17
sailfish his team tallied.
With temperatures drop-
ping and the w ind direction
changing, the bite proved
slow Sunday. The overall
results were indicative of the
slow dow n as the 15 teams
landed 85 sailfish on
Saturday but just 43 Suqday.
Capt. AJle Adler. who led
his team Kale\ to second
with 1I total sailfish, felt the
changing conditions mud-
died the water up and caused
the fish to be confused, caus-
ing the bites to dwindle.
Adler's team landed four
sailfish SundaN to maintain
their second-place position
after catching seven
Saturday .
In third \ as team
Rel tic,,/ls with 10 sailfish
The tournament marked-
the final tournament in 2008
ofESPN's wall-to-\ all cov-
erage of select Redbone
events. Footage from the
series %\ ill be aired Sundays
on ESPN2 at 8:30 a.m. start-
ing in April.


$25,000!: The 'Main Attraction' team scored 17 sailfish releases during the one-day
Islamorada Fishing Club Captain's Cup Sailfish Tournament to bring home the winner-take-all
check of $25,000 last Thursday. The win was the team's third of its kind in a row.



Follow the fish


that follow the bait


You know how lately I've
been saying the locals don't call it
windy unless there is a name
attached? Well, that's not quite
true, but it's close.
With strong of winds, the
water will cool quite quickly as
it's turned over, with the waves
releasing the warmth. This is par-
ticularly true for the shallower
waters of Florida Bay. It is also
where the bottom gets so stirred
up, which clouds all of the waters
near our islands.
Traveling over any of the area
bridges, you may have noticed all
the huge patches of weeds on the
surface washing through. These
carry numerous tiny fish that bait
fish seek. In turn, the larger pred-
ators will follow, as well. These
always seem to move quite a few
fish around.
This will fire up the fishing
just past the reef for anglers
searching for sailfish. Not to say
that it has been slow prior to the
front. Rather, it has been some of
the best action of the year lately
on sails.
The cooler waters to the north
of us should be enough to bring
that big push of kingfish into our
waters. There have been large
numbers of them off Fort
Lauderdale and Miami for several
weeks now. They should be head-
ed south, as should more sailfish.
The reef fish should also be
picking up on the new bait fish
that will be pushed into the area.
The yellowtail have been hot as a


Dave Navarro
Dave Navarro


firecracker
as of late
and the
muttons as
well as
groupers
should be
moving
into a little
shallower
water to
feed on the
newly
arrived
bait. Look
for more


kingfish activity along the patch
reefs, too.
The bay has been a last resort
for anglers for a while. Those that
took advantage of this venue
were rewarded with nice catches
highlighted by the big numbers of
mackerel. Nice snappers have
also been in many of the white
spots or small holes that dot the
bay bottom well out. The islands
and shoals that provide protection
from the winds also have been
producing a wide variety of fish
as of late.
The cooler water temperatures
along the West Coast of the state
will push the cobia and plenty of
mackerel south. The groupers
that have been out in deeper
water should be coming in to feed
on all of the bait that these other
species are following; pilchards
and glass minnows are moving in
by the millions.
For the best mackerel activity,


head north about 8 to 10 miles
and put out a good chum line.
Ohce they show up, you can use
anything that moves to catch one.
This, along with a-variety of bar-
racuda, sharks, jacks and other
species, has made plenty of tar-
gets for light-tackle enthusiasts.
Most of the recent trips prior to
the heavy winds resulted in very
happy anglers that had great
catches of mixed bags of fish.
If you're in a small boat or
without a boat at all and you don't
want to charter a boat, most likely
you will be fishing around or on
one of the bridges. This is a good
time of year for this, since there
are plenty of fish moving through
these channels. Live bait has been
tops for the snappers and jacks
that are feeding on the huge push
of bait fish coming through.
Nighttime has been the best.

Free seminar
This week's free fishing semi-
nar will focus on kings, mackerel
and more, along with a piece on
working in the wind. We'll show
ways to rig baits, leaders and
other tackle for fishing these
species. There will be discussions
as well as presentations.
That's this Sunday at 6 p.m. in
our outdoor amphitheater at our
Marine Educational Center, 3740
Overseas Highway, Marathon.

Capt. Dave Navarro owns the
World Class Angler and captains
the charter boat 'Dave's Dream.'
