Lawyer gets partial victory

But Slaton's attorney still facing laundering charges


By JAY WEAVER
jweaver@MiamiHerald.com

"One of the lead attorneys in
- Tegan Slaton's defense of a law-
suit challenging his victory in a
Monroe County Circuit Court
judge race got a judicial victory
of his own on Monday.
Monday, a federal judge threw
out the central conspiracy charge
against prominent Miami attor-
riey Ben Kuehne, who faces trial
next month on charges of laun-
dering drug-trafficking profits for
legal fees. U.S' District Court
Judge Marcia Cooke's ruling
could shatter- the case against
Kuehne.
He was indicted earlier this
year after vouching for
Colombian kingpin- $5.2 million
in legal payments to his defense
attorney, Roy Black, in a cocaine-
trafficking case in 2001-03.
Kuehne represents Slaton in
Mary Vanden Brook's effort to
get Slaton's Nov. 4 victory over-
turned. In her lawsuit filed Nov.
24, she alleges problems with
absentee ballots, ariong other
things, and improprieties in the
recount of votes.
When the polls closed Nov. 4,
Slaton was declared the winner
over Vanden-Brook by nineyvotes.
But following recounts of some
ballots, he was declared the win-
ner by four votes, 16,463 to
16,4591
Representing Vanden Brook is
former U.S. Attorney Kendall
Coffey - who worked with
Kuehne for Al Gore during the
2000 presidential ballot recount.
-Slaton tried unsuccessfully -
twice - to get a judge tossed
From the election case. He con-'
tended she couldn't be partial
because Kuehne worked for her
.election opponent 14 years ago.
Judge Victoria Platzer dis-
missed Salton's motion to recuse
herself, and his appeal to the
Third District Court of Appeal
was denied.
In Kuehne's case, Cooke's
decision for him Monday did not
apply to six other counts in the
indictment charging him and two
other defendants with money
laundering and wire fraud in con-
nection with the transfer of
Ochoa's legal payments to Black.
-But the main conspiracy count
is the glue that holds together the
indictment against Kuehne -
and without it, the government's


prosecution is fractured.
Cooke ruled that a congres-
sional exemption in the money-
laundering statute for lawyers'
legal fees applied to Kuehne, say-
ing it was critical to a defendant's
right to counsel under the
Constitution.'She called the gov-
ernment's analysis that Kuehne,
54, could be prosecuted because
the legal fees were allegedly
derived from drug proceeds
"flawed."
It's unclear whether the Justice
Department will appeal the ruling.
According to- the indictment
unsealed in February, Kuehne and
his two codefendants laundered
drug profits because they vouched
for the allegedly tainted -legal fees
that Ochoa, the one-time Mledellin


cartel boss, paid to Black and oth-
ers on his defense team.
Ochoa was convicted and sen-
tenced to 30 years in prison.
But Black, who had hired
Kuehne to scrutinize Ochoa's
assets, was not charged because
Kuehne advised him that the
defendant's funds were legiti-
mate. For vetting the money,
Black paid Kuehne about
$200,000.
At a court hearing last month,
Kuehne's lawyers argued that
Congress passed a 1988 exemp-
tion for attorneys in the money-
laundering law, which makes it a
crime for anyone to receive more
than $10,000 from illegal activity
such as drug trafficking.

Vanden Brook case


gets its 4th judge


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Following a Miami judge's
order, Mary Vanden Brook
refiled her lawsuit against Tegan.
Slaton and seven other defen-
dants Monday in Leon County
Circuit Court in Tallahassee.
But the Leon County Clerk of
the C6urts Office has returned the
case file - because Vanden
Brook failed to include $7.50 of
the $307.50 filing fee.'However,
the case has been assigned a
judge nonetheless.
Leon County Circuit Court
Judge P. Kevin Davey will hear
the case. Judge William Gary was
initially given the trial but is retir-
ing at the end of the year.
"This is good news .for me.
I'm less on the verge of a heart
attack than I was this morning.
Now I can just worry about my
litigation," Vanden Brook told
the Keynoter Tuesday.
A trial date could be assigned
as early as today.
The standard lawsuit filing fee
in Leon County is $300 unless
more than five defendants are
named. If that's the case, the cost
is an additional $2.50 per extra
defendant.
In addition to suing Slatort,
Vanden Brook has named in her


lawsuit Monroe County
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer, the three-member
Monroe County Elections
Canvassing Board and the three-
member state Elections
.Canvassing Commission.
Apparently she paid the miss-
ing $7.50 Tuesday, and the case
file will now be sent to
Tallahassee - again.
Vanden Brook, who lost the
Monroe County Circuit Court
judicial election to Slaton on
Nov. 4, sued in Monroe County
on Nov. 24 to get the result over-
.turned. She alleges improprieties
in the vote count and recount
processes.
Slaton originally was declared
the winner by nine votes.
Following recounts, he was still
the winner, by four votes out of
more than 32,000 cast.
Last week, Miami Associate
Administrative Judge Victoria
Platzer moved the case to Leon
County, where the candidates
qualified for election. She
replaced Monroe Judge David
Audlin, who recused himself.
As it stands, Slaton is set to
take over the family and probate
caseload of retiring Judge Sandra
"Taylor on Jan. 6.

Former cop in shooting


He didn't own
handgun that
was fired
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


A former high-ranking cop
from Indiana was involved in
some type of shooting incident
in Key West earlier this month,
and the gun is being sent back
to an Indiana sheriff's office.
But on Tuesday, no one
could say why the former offi-
cer, Timothy Schaffer; 47, still
had his service revolver after
leaving the Wells County (Ind.)
Sheriff's Department four years
ago.
It's also unclear why he was-
n't arrested when the gun is reg-
istered to that law enforcement
agency, not Schaffer.
Schaffer was formerly the
chief deputy at the Wells
County Sheriff's Department, a
post he left in 2004,. and was
formerly married to the police
chief in Bluffton, Ind., accord-
ing to Glen Werling, managing
editor, of the Bluffton News
Banner.
"Ican certainly say the case
is still open," Key West spokes-
woman Alyson Crean told the
Keynoter in an e-mail Tuesday.
"Beyond that. however, I have
not heard back from the-detec-
-ives' 4ind cannot ... shed any

Keys briefs


Group sues over use
of 'Conch Republic'

An Upper Keys group on
Tuesday sued Key West resident
Peter Anderson, Monroe County
and the Tourist Development
Council, saying it's being illegal-
ly blocked from using the words
"Conch Republic" as part of the
name of a new festival.
The Key Largo-based Upper
Keys Group Inc., headed, by
Chris "Sahte, Jim. Turner and
Howard Kolbenheyer, says
Anderson doesn't own the rights
to the ,words "Conch Republic"


more light on the details of the
case."
Key West police responded
to a report of shots fired in
Apartment 3 at 507 Frances St.
just after midnight Dec. 4. No
arrests were made but a .45
Glock 21 handgun that belongs
to the Wells County Sheriff's
Department, was found accord-
ing to a police report.
As officers arrived on the
scene, "We could hear a male
and female verbally arguing
from the upstairs apartment,"
one report, written by Officer
Eric Biskup, says.
After repeatedly knocking,
officers entered the apartment
and found Schaffer and Arlene
Noel, 46, in bed, the report
says.
"Both Schaffer and Noel
denied being in any argument
and said they had been asleep
since 10 p.m. Ofc. [Carter]
Sims asked if there was a
firearm in the house. Schaffer-
said 'yes' and directed Ofc.
Sims to a ... pistol contained in
an unlocked box under the
bed.... Both Schaffer and Noel
said the gun was not fired," the
report said.
However, the report says,
officers found the pistol's
loaded magazine on a coffee
table and found a spent shell
casing on the couch; the casing
matched the ammunition in the


and that the county and TDC
should not be allowed to give
Anderson's Conch Republic
Independence Days event, held in
April, $18,500 to offset costs and
help with promotion.
The Key Largo group wants to
stage what it calls Conch
Republic Days, Northernmost
Territories, in the spring to raise
money for charitable causes.
The lawsuit says Anderson
claims the Upper Keys group
can't use the words "Conch
Republic." The' lawsuit says
those words are generic and in
the public domain, and therefore
open to anyone to use.

magazine. No bullet holes were
found, the report says.
The report goes on-to say a
gunshot residue test, which
determines whether someone
recently fired a gun, was per-
formed on Schaffer. The results
of the test were not included in
the report or supplemental doc-
umentation.
A follow-up report released
Tuesday, written by Officer
Donald Lee Guevremont, says
U.S. Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms records
show the gun belongs to the
Wells County Sheriff's
Department in Indiana.
It says that last Thursday,
Wells County Sheriff Bob
Frantz "advised me that as the
owner of the Glock, they want--
ed the handgun returned to the
Sheriff's Department. Upon
completion of receiving this
request, I spoke with Timothy
Shaffer, who advised me that he
had not registered the Glock in
his name, and if the sheriff of
Wells County wanted the gun
returned, it was fine with him."
Key West Police Chief Donie
Lee, Schaffer and Frantz could-
n't be reached for comment.

Relief, but also caution from fishermen


Grouper ban
gives'reprieve
for a while
By KEVIN WADLQW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys fishermen hailed
Friday's news that a planned
grouper, closure for federal
Atlantic Ocean waters has been
dropped - but they know the
.debate over grouper rules is far
from over.
. "For jaded souls who fought a
little grassroots effort that every-
body thought was hopeless, this
is gratifying," Lower Keys char-
ter fisherman Brad Simonds said.
"I would caution that this is a
temporary reprieve," Simonds said
Tuesday. "There is going to be reg-
ulation for sure. It is coming."

Friday that an emergency four-
monthf closure once slated to
begin Jan. 1 will be- cancelled,
National 'Marine Fisheries
Service Regional Administrator
Roy Crabtree said work on
changes to South Atlantic grouper
and snapper rules will continue.
The South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council and the
Fisheries Service are "looking at
finalizing the [snapper-grouper]
rule for the long term, probably
this spring," said Kim Amendola,
a Fisheries Service spokes-
woman. "If approved, actions
including new recreational bag
limits and commercial fishing
quotas could go into effect some-
time in 2009."
Even the controversial
January-through-April closed
season for gag grouper, black
grouper and red grouper could be
on the 2010 calendar, she said.
Crabtree said Friday that since
approval delays pushed the earli-
est possible start of the 2009
grouper closure back to February,
"the conservation benefits of the
interim rule would be greatly
diminished."


Throughout much of 2008,,
charter fishermen and recreation--
al anglers loudly protested the
grouper closure recommended by
the South Atlantic Council.
The rule was craftedprimarily
to protect the gag grouper fishery,
but extended to the blackgrouper
and red grouper that are hugely
popular fish in the Keys.
"This gives [fishery man-
agers] time to reassess the science
on reds and* blacks," said
Islamorada charter captain Bill
Kelly. "Our fish-box science con-
flicts sharply with some of the
grouper data they are presenting."
Kelly pointed to rules for-
warded by the Gulf of Mexico
Fishery Management Council'
that seek to ease restrictions on
red grouper because of improved
stock assessments.
S"In the Keys, that's literally
the other side of the Overseas
Highway," Kelly said. "How can
the science be that different?"
State fishery managers with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
opposed the grouper closure for
South Florida's Atlantic waters,
and pointedly refused to include
state waters in the closed season.


The grouper closure in the
height of the Keys tourism season
also drew fire .from Monroe
County business groups and gov-.
ernment councils.
"My customers were putting
off booking trips until they knew
what was happening with the
grouper," said Key West charter
captain Andy Griffiths. "This
could help things start to pick up.
It's some relief, even if tempo-
rary."
Kelly has been named one of
three recreational fishermen to
consult on the Southeast Data,


Assessment and Review study for
red and black' grouper that will
take place through 2009. The
report is expected in January 2010.
"We will abide by the science,"
Kelly said. "But even if they find
red and black grouper are in need
of additional protection, I don't
think it's likely that it will result in
a four-month closure."
Simonds said, "Most people
realize the days when they could
come down and fill up giant cool-
ers with grouper are over. But the
notion that you couldn't even
keep one was pretty draconian."

The nasty weather up north
may have cancelled numerous
flights and stranded thousands

weather delays to Atlanta or
Charlotte or the other hubs we
fly to."
However, that doesn't mean
passengers won't experience
delays trying to get'to the Keys.
For example, you might be able
to get to the Keys from
Charlotte, N.C., but if you're
trying to get to Charlotte from
elsewhere for your connecting
flight to Key West, you might
be delayed by the inclement
weather.
Andrea Anapol, public rela-
tions director for the Doubletree
Grand Key Resort in Key West,
said, "We here at the hotel are
not getting any cancellations."
But, she said, "It's more com-
plicated than a simple yes or no
answer.'
That's because visitors to the
DoubleTree have the option of
canceling at centralized compa-
nywide call centers or online.
The story was the same
across town at the Ocean. Key
Resort and the Pier House:
There are lots of incoming holi-
day travelers and none com-
plaining of delays in getting
here.
On Monday and Tuesday,
flights were running on time all
along the eastern and western
coasts, according to the Federal
Aviation Administration. There
have been extensive arrival
delays into Chicago-area air-
ports, but those do not serve as
hubs to Key West-bound
flights.
The vast majority of flights
into Key West originate in
Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami or
Fort Lauderdale.

Minor bridges

falling down


Not all, but
manyin need
of repair now
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Monroe County Engineer
Dave Koppel put a scare.into
many when he said the Keys
are facing a $100 million
bridge repair bill.
We do, Koppel told county
commissioners last
Wednesday, but it's not as bad
as it seems. Koppel floated the
- nine-digit figure during a
presentation to the County
Commission on the state of
the county's bridges.
"Really -what I said was
that if'we were to fix every-
thing indicated, that's what
the number would be. In reali-
ty, it doesn't work that way,"
he told the Keynoter. "We're
in a situation where We have
one bridge that needs to be
worked on and that's Palm
Drive."
The Palm Drive Bridge is
just 24 feet long and spans a
small canal leading to a subdi-
vision in the Lower Keys.
"Thaf was the bridge that
has been cited as in serious
condition and that's the one
* we're going to be taking
action on,"- Koppel said.
"Most of our bridges are in
good shape, but we have half a
dozen to 10 that we need to do
some work on over the next
five to 10 years."
He estimated the work
would cost roughly $4 mil-
lion, starting with $350,000
for the Palm Drive Bridge.
That bridge received the low-
est sufficiency rating accord-
ing to bi-annual inspections
done by a Florida Department
of Transportation consultant.
On a scale of 100, with 100
being the best; Palm Drive
received a score of just 17.
Among the other bridges to
receive subpar ratings: Boca
Chica Road on Geiger Key
(24.8), the Old Seven Mile
Bridge (27.3), No Name
Bridge (44), Boca Chica Road
on Similar Sound (45.2) and
Duck, Key Drive/Tom's


Harbor (46).
.According to Koppel, the
county is responsible for
maintenance and repair of 26
bridges on secondary roads in
unincorporated areas. The
DOT is responsible for 42
bridges along U.S. 1 in the
county.
The typical lifespan for a
bridge in the Keys is 50 years
and the county has six older
than that. Another 16, Koppel
said, were constructed in the
1960s and are between 38 and
48 years old.
The Palm Drive Bridge was
actually built in 1975, making
it one of the newer bridges.
But environmental factors can
shorten the life of any bridge,
Koppel said.
He said staff will request in
January that the commission
levy a penny tax already
applied to diesel fuel to help
fund necessary bridge repairs.
He said it would raise an addi-
tional $500,000 if applied to
general fuel, as well.

The joy of Santa

lives on forever
From the New York Sun editorial page, 1897

We take pleasure in answering thus prominently the commu-
nication below, expressing at the same time our great gratifica-
tion that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of
SThe Sun:

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no
Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so."
Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?
Virginia O'Hanlon

Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have-been affected
by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except
they see: They think that nothing can be which is not comprehen-
sible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be
men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man
is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the
boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence
capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion
exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its
highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if
there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were
no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry,
no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no
enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with
which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in
fairies. Youi might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the
chimneys- on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if
you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that
prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there
is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those
that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies
dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that
they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the
* wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise
inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not
the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the
strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poet-
ry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and pic-
ture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah,
Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
No Santa Claus? Thank God he lives and lives forever. A
thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years
from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Grouper decision was right, now let's await the science


EDITOR:
For-hire, commercial and recreational anglers
can breathe a temporary sigh of relief over the
decision by the National Marine Fisheries Service
to rescind the interim rule on Amendment 16 that
would close the shallow-water grouper fishery in
North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and
Florida from Jan. 1 through April 30. Dr. Roy
Crabtree, southeast regional director of the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, made the official announcement
Friday, citing a number of pertinent reasons for.
the rescission.
This ruling will allow unfettered access to a
valuable fishery for for-hire and commercial fish-
ermen struggling with a faltering economy and
their efforts to meet mortgage and boat payments
and other financial obligations.
All of the user groups recognize our responsi-
bility to the resource, and toward that end, eager-
ly await the results of extensive stock assess-
ments, scheduled to take place in 2009, giving us
a clearer picture of the status of black and red
grouper populations. The Southeast Data
Assessment Review, or SEDAR process, will be
binding on all of us and we will abide by the sci-
ence and findings of the review.


Our "fish box science" conflicts sharply with
the accuracy of some of the data presented by the
various review groups and we will now have addi-
tional time to analyze this information and put
forth our arguments to the regulatory agencies.
Tireless efforts and action by Islamorada
Charter Boat Association President Capt. Steve
Leopold and the members of the group, the

It's a good time to thank our protectors


EDITOR:
This time of the year seems to be when peo-
ple think about the friends and relatives who are
no longer with us. But within those thoughts are
also those who are still with us enriching our
lives just by being who they are.
I'd like to ask everyone if they would have a
good thought about the unsung heroes in our
lives. You know, the people we see every day but
don't stop to wave to or give them a quick smile.
For reasons many of us can't understand, they
have chosen to put their lives at risk every day so
we don't have to.

Restaurants
support Switlik
EDITOR:
The ALPHA pancake breakfast was a huge
success Dec. 6 at Stanley Switlik Elementary
School's Santa's Workshop. We want to thank all
the businesses and people who helped us.
Thanks'to their generosity, we were-able to
raise additional funds for future field trips for the
students. A big thank you goes out to the
International House of Pancakes, Burger King,
Keys Fisheries, Key Colony Inn, MacArthur
Dairy, McDonald's, Stuffed Pig, Village Cafe,
Wendy's, Cristiano's, Esperanza Mendoza and all
the parent and student volunteers who donated
time, food items and other supplies. We could
not have done this without them.
We appreciate our community, which contin-
ues to support the students at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School.

We believe that if are lucky and aren't robbed,
don't have an accident, lose a friend or family
member to drugs or violence, or experience a fire
at our home, we'll never have to interact with
these unsung heroes. But are we really'winning?
The men and women that serve in these jobs are
an integral part of our One Human Family, for
without them, our family could not function as well
as it does. When not in uniform, you may not even
recognize them unless you look into their eyes.
They're always looking around, even off-duty, for
any danger that may affect you, their family. '
So as you go about your busy life arid you see
a firefighter or police officer, give them a sfiile
and a wave. Let them know that while we can't
really understand the stress they have in protect-
ing us, we appreciate what they do.

Wounded Warriors' dive brings out pride


EDITOR:
Basking in the glow of a love
ignited by a group of individuals
and business owners ranging from
Islamorada to Key Largo'has
internally generated within me a
state ofmind frequently referred
to as aRocky Mountain high.
Everyday people and local
business owners from our com-
munity were anything but ordi-
nary. During the week that the
Wounded Warriors' dive took
place in the Florida Keys, an
extraordinary happening occurred.
People felt so joyous about the
gifts they were exchanging with
these combat-wounded veterans
that they loved themselves and
everybody around them, all the
time. I've never been a witness to
anything that came near the mas-
sive amounts of affection, respect
and appreciation that were contin-
uously showered upon these
returning wounded Marines and
soldiers,.
The electrifying source of
energy fueling this event was
without limit. The unconditional
and generous giving by these citi-
zens and businesses became a
common and contagious virtue.
The U.S. Marines, along with


Their brothers and sisters in arms
from the Army, were visibly pro-
pelled and catapulted into a
healed and magnificently altered
state of consciousness by this out-
pouring of support.
During the week as I listened
and spoke with these Purple Heart
recipients, a dramatic change took
place in them. It was nothing short
of miraculous. I enjoyed this heal-
ing as a byproduct simply through
my presence at some of their
scheduled events.
These veterans and their civil-
ian counterparts brought out the
great potential that resides within
us. It served as a reminder to a
Lesson taught me long ago, and
oftentimes forgotten, that there is
indeed an inexplicable joy in giv-
ing. I re-learned that lesson that
week, as I had the privilege to be
in the company of some remark-
able individuals who pledged
their honor and fortunes to-those
who shed their blood so that we
may maintain a fitting place to
call our. home.
Thanks to all who were respon-
sible for the Wounded Warriors'
dive.

Irving and Jean Eyster are the toast of the town during Irving's 90th birthday. The
Islamotada historian founded the Matecumbe Historical Trust.


90th celebration brought out friends


EDITOR:
I would like to thank the entire commu-
nity for all the help and support we received
in celebrating Irving Eyster's 90th birthday
with a party at the Elks Club. Close to 300
people attended at a time when there were
many other events being held in
Islamorada, Key West and Miami. This
showing was a great tribute to an icon here
in the Florida Keys and the entire state.
Thank you to Mayor Cathi Hill,
Councilwoman Jill Borski, councilmen
Dave Boemer and Don Achenburg, former
mayors Frank Kulisky and Bob Johnson,
and former councilmen Mike Forster and
George.Geisler for attending. Also, a thank
you to U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and
state Rep. Ron Saunders for sending repre-
sentatives; Mark Kohl, Dennis Ward and
Sylvia Murphy for taking time out of their
busy schedules to attend; and to the many I


prominent historians who attended from
Miami to Key West.
Special thanks to the Elks Club, Marcia
and Chip DeClue, and George for the
accommodations; Mike Forster for the great
food; Stoky's; Enchanted Florist; Daryl
Osborn; Fran Young and her art class at
Island Christian School; Dixie Aluminum;
Publix; and the Islamorada library for
donating to our cause.
The momentum and the interest the
Matecumbe Historical Trust is creating
toward building a historical museum along
with the community are tremendous. With
the help of the residents of the Florida
Keys, we will achieve this goal.
Thank you to everyone who helped in
honoring Irving Eyster on this special day.
Your attendance spoke volumes.

Studios of Key West enlivens community


EDITOR:
I want to thank the community of Key
West for the wonderful support of the
inaugural music series at The Studios of
Key West, Old Town New Folk.
Our first show on Dec. 4 featured
Grammy Award-winning artist Bill Miller
and was attended by more than 130 peo-
ple. The new set, designed by Rick
Worth, looked fabulous, and Dan
Simpson from Private Ear ensured that
the sound and lights were perfect. The
evening was a warm, wonderful begin-
ning to a new Key West tradition.
I also want to thank the staff and board
at The Studios of Key West. In less than
two years, The Studios has become a
vibrant part of our community. As a new


Key Wester, I approached the staff at the
Studios and proposed a folk concert
series. They responded immediately, and I
felt welcomed to their organization and to
the creative community. With their pres-
ence and cultural mission, the Armory
building is once again coming alive as a
place for all people that live in or visit
Key West.
We hope you'll join us there for the
remaining three Old Town New Folk con-
certs. Jan. 8 brings songwriter Carrie
Newcomer, who will be followed by the
unique Johnsmith and then crafter of
amazing music, David Wilcox, to round
out the season.

wastewater system once it's built.
While the arguments were the
same, the council members on
each side changed.
Jill Zima Borski changed her
previous "yes" vote to "no," and
Michael Reckwerdt surprisingly
gave the requirement final pas-
sage after strongly opposing it
during first reading two weeks
prior.
"This one, I don't feel particu-
larly good about," Reckwerdt
said after Thursday's vote.
"Instinctually, this is against my
nature. I don't like government
control."
Reckwerdt said he was
swayed by an unanswered ques-
tion of what would happen to the.
second phase of the north
Plantation Key wastewater treat-
ment area if the resolution wasn't
adopted, and the fact the resolu-
tion had the support of Vice
Mayor Don Achenberg.
"When I'm on the other side
of Don, it worries me," he said.
"But really, I can't gamble with
phase two right now."
The resolution makes official
a policy the village has followed
since construction of the north
Plantation Key system several
years ago.
Once a sewage treatment plant
and collection pipes are con-
structed, nearby property owners
will begin receiving sewage bills
in 30 days. This allows the vil-
lage to collect the necessary cash
flow to pay for the construction
and operation of the system,
finance officials say.
If property owners don't hook
up, they could be subject to
penalties from the state
Department of Environmental
Protection, which has mandated
advanced wastewater treatment
for all of the Keys by July 2010.
However, the village is asking for
a two-year extension.
Councilman Dave Boerer
dissented and -again argued the
requirement takes away options
for property owners who may
feel they could meet the -state
requirements on their own, such
as building their own neighbor-
hood plants, for less tost than
connecting to a village system.
Village Manager Ken Fields
said the latest council vote d6es-
n't give staff a "blank check" to
build a large and expensive sys-
tem, and the council will have
several future decisions as :to


where a system is installed and at
what cost.
"It provides that the costs are
shared across all users throughout
the system," Fields said. "If-indi-
viduals are able to opt out, the
cost doesn't change dramatically,
it just shifts to other users."
Mayor Cathi Hill and
Achenberg supported the plan,
saying it moves the village for-
ward with the long-overdue task
of improving nearshore water
quality.
Zima Borski said she wants to
wait until more design and cost
information is available from vil-
lage engineering consultant
Hazen and Sawyer. That informa-
tion is expected in a January
workshop.
"Until we know better those


If property
owners don't
hook up, they

Environmental
Protection


costs, I don't feel comfortable
with this," she said. "I have a
problem with a government enti-
ty that does not accommodate a
concerted and whole-hearted
effort of sharing information."
The issue of mandatory con-
nection surfaced in a recent law-
suit filed against the village on
behalf of dozens of owners at
Cheeca Lodge Resort and Spa.
The suit contends the village's
recent $631 assessment on every
parcel that will eventually con-
nect to central sewers - used to
raise initial design and engineer-
ing money -- is unwarranted
because Cheeca will utilize an on-
site wastewater treatment plant.
Cheeca's cost to upgrade the
plant to meet state standards will
be less than $500,000, while it
could cost up to $4 million to
connect all 150 condo-hotel units
to a village sewage system, the
suit claims.

Sea fans get more protection


It's more for
education than
enforcement
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Divers and snorkelers must
treat sea fans with the same care
as hard corals, under a pending
change to Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary rules.
Touching any coral - stony
or soft - could be considered a
violation of sanctuary rules,
according to a summary report.
"There is enough science to
demonstrate that touching or
kicking corals, hard or soft, is not
a good: thing and does cause
harm," said Dave Score, the Keys
sanctuary superintendent.
Several pending amendments
to Keys sanctuary regulations
were published in the Dec. 19
edition of the Federal Register,
including an extension of the
longstanding protections on hard
coral to sea fans, a soft coral.
A comment period is open
until Jan. 20.
If approved, the change won't
trigger a crackdown on errant
divers who accidentally brush up
against the reef or a sea fan wav-
ing in the current; Score said.
"We're not going to do under-
water enforcement stings on the
reef," Score said.
"This is more a rule of intent.
When people, know the right
thing to do, most of them will,"
he said. "By clarifying the rule, it


allows us to inform the public
through education that touching
any coral is not the best practice."
, Sanctuary regulations adopted
in 1997 generally manage soft
corals under rules for live rock,
according to the Federal Register.
The rule change would "amend
the definition of coral to specifi-
cally include the common sea fan
and Venus sea fan, which are
important sanctuary resources...."
The rules will not significant-
ly affect Keys dive-boat opera-
tions in the sanctuary because
boat crews already caution cus-
tomers on the need to avoid con-
tact with hard and soft corals,
according to a rule summary.
"Because the sanctuary cannot
realistically enforce every single
underwater infraction that may
occur within its boundaries, we
instead rely heavily on continuous
education of the sanctuary's user
groups," said Karrie Cames, sanc-
tuary communications director.
FKNMS will continue to work
with dive and snorkel operators
through its outreach programs."
The rule changes also:
* Amend the safe distance
between vessels and moored
boats displaying a "diver down"
flag to be 100 yards instead of
100 feet. Coast Guard rules and
Florida boating law already spec-
ify the 100-yard distance, says
the Federal Register.
* Specifies that activities
banned in marine protected areas
like Sanctuary Preservation Areas
also are in effect at Research
Only Areas.


+ Correct "technical citations
currently out of date, and align
regulations with state laws."

FKAA to lead No Name sewers


DCA rejected
county's plan
for wastewater
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission has chosen to let the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
- not politicians - decide
what's best for No Name Key
'from now on, at least when it
comes to sewers.
The commission voted last
week n6t to appeal the state
Department of Community
Affairs' rejection of a land devel-
opment regulation calling the
Lower Keys island to be sewered
without first providing commer-
cial electricity. It ruled the
Aqueduct Authority, which is
designing and installing sewers
for most of the unincorporated


county, will make that decision.
In addition, the commission is
expected to vote to repeal the
ordinance dealing with the LDR
at a Jan. 29 special meeting on
comprehensive plan amend-
ments.
"Letting the Aqueduct find the
best way to sewer No Name is
logical and this has to be a logical
decision, not an emotional or
political one," Commissioner
Kim Wigington said.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
made the motion not to appeal the
'DCA ruling and to rescind the
LDR ordinance. She said she
feels the commission. should
defer to the Aqueduct Authority.
"We agreed a long time ago
the [Aqueduct Authority] will'-
make the plans, do the design and
do the work or see that the work
is done; we will foot the bill,"
Murphy said.


SThe 43 homes on No Name
Key are powered by solar panels,
generators or other means. They
also use cisterns or other means
of acquiring water, since the
Aqueduct Authority doesn't have
pipes running to No Name.


The
ordinance
provided
for sewers
and utilities
throughout
the system.


County Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette has said a
comprehensive plan amendment
would have been a better way to


pursue sewers on No Name, but
the commission chose not to pur-
sue that. It would have been a
longer and tougher process, as
amendments can only be applied
for twice per year.
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.
But in addition to not going
through the proper process, DCA
ruled language in the new regula-
tion was 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 ordinance provided
for sewers and utilities through-
out the system.
"I see it as a step back, not as
an end as far as central collection
out there, nor electricity,"
Neugent said. "We certainly can't

Oropeza heading to India


Rotarian from
Key West works
tonight polio
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key West Rotary Club mem-
ber Rachel Oropeza is heading
halfway around the world to do
her part to try to stamp out polio.
"I'm the one that's privileged
to get to go," Oropeza said, "in a
small way, to make a difference,
to help eradicate polio in our life-
time."
She's traveling to India in
February to take part in an inter-
national Rotary initiative aimed
at eradicating polio.
Oropeza is scheduled to arrive
in Delhi, India, on Jan. 29 and
then travel to a smaller, outlying
town called Chandigarh, where
she will help other Rotary volun-
teers hand out immunizations for
the crippling and largely eradicat-
ed disease.
Oropeza is the first Rotarian
from Key West to go abroad in
the club's worldwide efforts to
fight polio as part of the 20-ear
PolioPlus program, which stated
in 1985.. Efforts are centered in
India, Pakistan. Afghanistan and\
West Africa.
The trip costs about $3,500,
which was raised in part by Key
West Rotarians and by Oropeza's
bosses .'t Great Events Catering.
"I have the big heart but not
the big; wallet," Oropeza said.
"Ever one has just been very
positive. They were like, 'We are
going to make this happen."'
Oropeza hopes her upcoming


trip will
inspire future
Key West
Rotariaris to
-take two
weeks out of
their lives to
,help ' fight
polio, which is.
OROPEZA a viral disease
that can dam-
age the central nervous system.
"My hope is that I start a trend
here," she said. "I hope next year
I'm helping someone else in the
club do this too. It's going to be
one of those life-changing experi-
ences."
Oropeza is undeterred by
recent terrorist attacks in
Mumbai, India, that claimed the
lives of about 170 people.
"I don't want those kind of
people to not allow me to do
good," Oropeza said. "I want to
get the polio vaccine out there."
Oropeza and about 40 other
Rotarians from as close as Miami
and as far as Australia will meet
in Delhi.and embark on the vol-
unteer, journey under the guid-
ance of 'Miami-based Rotarian
Noelle Galperin, who has made
three other trips to India with
Rotary.
X "India is one of the last polio-
endemic countries,"4 Galperin
said "These campaigns are
desired to supplement routine
immunizations [by the Indian
government]."
The Indian government along
with- the World Health
Organization carefully tracks and
tests for polio in India so that
resources can be strategically dis-

patched to contain the spread of
.the disease, which travels to
humans from drinking water
tainted with infected feces.
"There's just widespread polio
and poor health care," Galperin
said. "Children under 5 have to
be immunized again and again."
While in' India, visiting
Rotarians will stay with host fam--
ilies that are also members of the
Rotary Club. "The Rotarians in
India are the real heroes,"
Galperin said.
The trip consists of planned
immunization days at schools and
churches along with door-to-door
trips to administer the vaccine-to
people who missed the scheduled
events.
"House is a liberal term" when
used in reference to India,
Galperin said. "Sometimes a
house is a shack or four sticks
with plastic over it. We will go
into the slum areas and give oral
polio vaccines to as many chil-
dren as we can."
Galperin views eradicating
polio in India and other blighted
nations as integral to protecting
the world's population from the
once-rampant disease.
"To me, one of the most
impactful parts of the experience
is knowing that vaccinating chil-
dren in India helps that child and
all children. We're really saving
all of the world's children.from a
potentially crippliing disease."
"It is a life-changing experi-
ence to walk the slums of very,
very poor towns and see people
who have nothing thank you for
helping their children," Galperin
said.
Oropeza's trip is scheduled for
Jan. 28 through Feb. 8..

Cities likely to lose gas tax


Murphy says
county was
'too generous'
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Keys municipalities may have
considerably less money for road
repairs next summer if the
Monroe County Commission
votes o decrease their share of
gas taxes.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton, briefly mentioned the
topic at last week's County
Commission meeting, saying two
gas tax contracts expire in, July
2009. The constitutional gas tax.
is collected by the county but
divvied up among Marathon,.
Islamorada, Key Colony Beach
and Layton according to an inter-
local agreement.
"We are going to.be looking at
the possibility of negotiating dif-
ferent terms," Hutton said.
According to " County
Engineer Dave Koppel, the coun-
ty was never obligated to share
the gas tax money.
Islamorada has budgeted to
receive $160,000 in constitution-
al gas tax revenue in fiscal year
2009, while Marathon has bud-
geted to receive $290,000.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy


said it was widely believed the
county was "much too generous"
when it agreed to divvy up the
gas tax.
"It's simply the amount that
they collect versus how much
they get. That's how they do the
bed tax," Murphy said. "I imag-
ine it will be some kind of formu-
la and we'll go from there."
Mayor George Neugent and
Commissioner Kim Wigingfon
each cited the county's shortfall
in funds to repair failing bridges
as a reason to renegotiate the tax
split. Koppel made the commis-
sion aware of that growing prob-
lem in *a presentation last
Wednesday.
. '"We're definitely going to
have todo something, if it's rene-
gotiate or raise the gas tax or
both, because we don't have the
funds to repair the bridges,".
Wigington said.
Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett and Islamorada
Manager Ken Fields both said the
loss of any gas tax revenue would
be detrimental. Burnett said he
remembers it being a "battle" to
get a share of those funds in the
first place.
"Finally they agreed to divvy
it up for the mileage within the
cities where a lot of the gas tax
comes from," Bumett said.. "It,


goes to our street maintenance, so
if it went away it would be very
disappointing because a lot of it is
generated in the cities and should
stay within the cities."
"If it was to go away, it would
be devastating," Fields said. "It
would eliminate any- kind of
maintenance, repaving or any of
'that kind of stuff."
Hutton said the cities are
already getting more than their
fair share.
"We used to use some of the
gas tax for [social services trans-
portation]. When we decided to
share what we weren't required
to share, we quit doing that,"
Hutton said.
But municipalities still receive
the benefit of the social service
transportation while also receiv-
ing the tax dollars previously
used to fund it.
Neugent said falling gas prices
may prove to be a "godsend."
"Maybe an-additional penny
or how much we can add can be
discussed. We've got to maintain
our infrastructure," he said.
Hutton said she plans to
request approval at -the January
commission meeting to advertise
a public hearing for an additional
local-option gas tax. The county
already collects 6 cents on every
gallon, but as much as 11 cents
can be collected if approved.

OUT OF THE DRINK: A crew from Florida Keys Towing pulls
a 2005 Nissan out of the water near mile marker 61
Tuesday morning. The driver, reportedly from out of state,
apparently was traveling northbound and attempted to
turn around on an embankment when the car started
slipping. He jumped out unharmed-but the car rolled into
the water on the oceanside. It flipped and then floated to
the gulf side of this bridge before sinking.

Keys Energy gives light


Keys Energy Services recent-
ly donated 960 compact fluores-
cent light bulbs to the Key West
Housing Authority to give to the
residents of the Senior Citizen
Plaza and to residents of low-
income housing.
The donation is intended to
help educate seniors and low-
income residents about cost sav-
irigs that can be realized when
using the energy-efficient bulbs.
The bulb giveaway was made
possible through a joint partner-
ship with the Florida Municipal
Power Agency and by public


power utilities across the state.
"In this difficult economy, the
residents of the Housing
Authority properties will be able
to benefit from the cost savings
of CFL bulbs on their monthly
energy bills when compared to
traditional incandescent fix-
tures," said Lynne Tejeda, gener-
al manager and chief executive
officer of Keys Energy Services.
CFL bulbs help offset carbon
emissions when compared to
their incandescent counterparts.


One CFL bulb is estimated to
help reduce approximately 100
pounds of carbon emissions per
year. With the recent donation to
the Housing Authority, Keys
Energy will help offset approxi-
mately 96,000 pounds of carbon
emissions annually.

are urged to log on to www.keys

Home loans can change


More allowing
modifications
to mortgages
By ROBBIE HOPCRAFT
Keynoter Contributor


After years watching home
after home go into foreclosure,
lenders are finally paying atten-
tion and .modifying loans that
enable some homeowners to stay
in their homes,
But a word of caution: There
are many new so-called "loan
modification" companies jump-
ing into the mortgage. modifica-
tion business and with many of
them, you can end up paying sev-
eral thousands of dollars in fees
to a so-called "specialist" who


says he or she can help you but
really can't because they don't
know the process.
In fact, there is a process you
have to go through and the right
questions have to be asked. The
correct information has to be
gathered and then analyzed. to
determine'if a homeowner can
even qualify for a mortgage mod-
ification.
For months, lenders were say-
ing they couldn't even begin to
look at your case unless you were
several months behind in your
payments. That has changed. Now,
you don't have to be behind in
your payments for them to allow
you a modification. And your
credit doesn't have to be ruined.
; To qualify for a mortgage mod-


ification, you must be able to
show real need. A change in your
circumstance has to have occurred
in order for.you to be accepted for
a loan modification, for example,
if you've lost your job.
If the need is real and can be
proven and documented, then
you could qualify for a modifica-
tion - and stay in your home
rather become displaced.
And some more good news:
Lenders are lowering interest
rates, in some instances to as low
as 1 percent, and in many cases
forgiving the principal.
But beware of the scammers
who would pray on your weak-
ened circumstance.

mortgage broker with Best Rate
Lending in Key West.

Christmas
is about more
than just presents
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

To many children and adults,
Christmas means Santa Claus,
presents and traditional holiday
music. But two Key West pastors
are working hard this Christmas
season to focus their congregants
on the religious importance of the
season.
SPastor Kerry Robb at St.
Paul's Episcopal Church at Duval
and Eaton streets is trying to use
the Christmas story, contained
mostly in the gospel of Luke, to
emphasize God's indiscriminant
love.
"The birth of Christ teaches us
about who God is," Robb said.
"We believe God loves every-
body the same. God wants to
include everyone who is willing
to be included. We want to be as
open as we possibly can."
Robb said Episcopal services
are a great place for people who
do not regularly worship.
"It's a beautiful service," he
said. "We have the same readings
as the Roman Catholic Church and
the Lutheran Church. At the end of
the service we give everyone a
candle and light it" to emphasize
Christ's message of hope.
Robb acknowledged that the
secular aspects of the Christmas
season do detract from religion,
but, "We make it a pointnot to
complain about the secular nature
of the season," he said. "We talk
about the positive atmosphere of
the season."
Christmas services at St:
Paul's are scheduled for 5 and 11
p.m. tonight and 10 a.m. on
Christmas.
Across town at the Fifth Street
Baptist Church in New Town,
Pastor Ozzie Vater is attaching
his own liturgical style to what is
a tradition unique to the Key
West church: An advent wreath.
Vater came to Key West and&
the Fifth Street Baptist Church in
early December 2007, just in time
for Christmas. He was surprised
when he saw the congregation
using an advent wreath, a hori-
zontal evergreen wreath that has
five candles.
"Advent wreaths are normally

used by mainline denomination
churches," Vater said.
He recognized the importance
of the tradition to his new congre-
gation and decided, "Before you
go ripping down any fences, you
better know why they're up."
"Each of the candles repre-
sents a different aspect of the
Christmas story," Vater said.
Generally, a specific Bikpas-
sage or reading would be associ-
ated with each candle, but Vater
said that Baptist pastors have a
little more leeway. He came up
with his own interpretations. -
The candles are assigned the
meanings of prophecy, humility,
blessing, angels and Christ. They
are lit on subsequent Sundays, in
the above order, with the last can-
dle lit on Christmas Eve.
The Christ candle is-used "as
an acknowledgement of Christ
coming as our savior," Vater said.
He explained that trying teakeep
the same story inspiring year after
year is a challenge.
"Every year is different.
Basically, what we're doing is
telling the same story over and
over again. I've tried to focus on
the transitions that come into a
believer's life as they make the
transition from being an unbe-
liever to a believer."

the past year. Vater said his con-
gregation is largely focused on
the religious meaning of the holi-
day despite the distractions of the
mainstream celebration.
"A person who is more com-
mitted to Christ, it's easy to focus
_.them on the religious and histori-
cal aspects," Vater said. "It seems
to be less of problem [for
Baptists] than some other denom-
inations may have. We always
focus On the spiritual."
The Fifth Street Baptist also
embraces the charity associated
with Christmas.
"We distribute food baskets to


those who are needy," Vater said.
"During the holiday season, if we
know of a family that is strug-
gling to provide, we try to help
out. Christmas is a very compas-
sionate time of the year."
Services at the Fifth Street
Baptist Church, 1311 5th St., are


scheduled for 6 p.m. tonight.
St. Mary Star of ,the Sea
Catholic Church has scheduled a

Key West High School held
off a late surge by county rival
Marathon High School Friday to
earn the boys basketball team a
67-60 victory on the Dolphins'
home court.
The Conchs built as much as a
17-point lead with 4:00 remain-
ing in the fourth quarter, but
Marathon stormed back to within
three in the final minute.
The Dolphins were forced to
foul late and Key West sunk cru-
cial free throws to keep the lead
intact.
"They played so.well that last


three minutes,but we had to foul
and Key West made their free
throws," Dolphins coach Kevin
Freeman said. "There was noth-
ing we could do about it."
"We knew that was going to
happen when it comes to the run.
The main thing is to keep our
cool," Conchs coach Paul Davis
said, adding he was happy to see
his team control the pace against
Marathon.
"The last few years it was
tough because we get behind and
it's tough to come back out there.
In this game, the-guys came out
strong," he said.

The Dolphins' overcame an
early onslaught by what coach
Jim Murphy said was a speedy,
physical Bay Point team. The
Falcons scored on a breakaway
minutes into the game to take an
earlh lead.


The Dolphins responded just
minutes later with a goal by sen-
ior Charles Bragan, but the
Falcons regained the lead almost
immediately by deflecting a
crossing ball in for the 2-1 lead.
Murphy responded by moving
Bragan and brother James, along
with senior Noel Ceja, to the
backline.
"That's probably our strongest
defense. Once they scored a sec-
ond one, I thought I .better do
something;" Murphy said.
It worked. The Falcons didn't

coach Robert Lucas.
"Aaron really did a fantastic
job leading the team," Lucas said.
Island Christian, a Class A
program, plays the JV of 3A
Coral Shores as a regular-season
game.
'I was real pleased with the
defensive intensity in the first
half," Lucas said. " We struggled
in the third quarter and early
fourth handling their press."
"We were able to gain the ear-
lier defensive intensity down the
stretch and control the boards,"
Lucas said.
Pratt. grabbed several impor-


tant steals as the veteran "came
out of his scoring slump, hitting
some timely baskets," said the
ICS coach.,
After struggling in five early
losses, the Eagles put it together
Dec. 15 for the season's first win,
a 60-21 decision over Colonial
Christian at Marathon High
School.
Ledwith, a 6-foot-5 freshman,
dominated with 15 points, 13
rebounds and eight blocked
shots.
Jordan Izaguirre, also a fresh-
man, logged a double-double
with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
Senior guard Aaron Izaguirre
collected 11 points, 11 assists and
a half-dozen steals.


Colonial's Patriots repeatedly
tried to press the ICS attack,
Lucas said, but that-only led to
Eagle breakaways and layups. In
the third, the Eagles outscored
Colonial, 22-6.
"Christian and Jordan domi-
nated play inside all night 'and
helped limit Colonial to one shot
for most of the night," Lucas
said. "Aaron did a fantastic job
controlling the tempo. He also
consistently broke down their
press and found someone for easy
baskets."
. Jimmy Rhyne, an eighth-grad-
er, and sophomore Pratt each
scored eight points.

"We could tell they were start-

his two goals off a rebound from
a shot by junior Manny Perez.
Shortly before the half, DeFillips


struck again, scoring off a cross-
ing ball by senior Danny Valerdi.
The Dolphins led 3-2 at the half.
The Dolphins made a point of
passing the ball often in. the sec-
ond half to force Bay Point to
pursue the ball.
"I told them to keep moving
the ball around and they'll get
tired and won't be able to tackle
you," Murphy said.
DeFillips completed the hat
trick shortly after the break, scor-
ing off a through ball by Shahboz
Shiripov to put the Dolphins up
4-2. Shiripov scored a goal of his
own near the water break, inter-


cepting a pass and netting a
breakaway goal to put Marathon

Lady Conchs battle


- themselves


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Toward the end .of Friday
night's 73-29 romp over Summit
Christian, some members of the
Key West High School girls bas-
ketball team laughed, smiled and
posed, "as ;if possessed with
visions of in in\ cibili,,.
But on Saturday night, in the
title game of the Cooper Holiday
Classic before about 100 fans at
the Bobby Menendez Gym, -the
smiles turned to. scowls as the
Conchs fell apart - on and. off
the court - in a 59-51 loss to
Harmony High of St. Cloud.
Against a team whose harmo-
nious style included crisp pass-
ing, easy shots and a minimum of
mistakes, Key West had its hands
full. But late in the second quar-
ter, junior Chelsea Storr hit two
consecutive 3-point shots to give
the Conchs a 26-20 lead.
Then, startlingly, a scuffle
broke out on the Conch bench
between teammates Fran Hicks
and Tinisha Mitchell. Their fold-


ing chairs and bodies crashed to
the floor, and they went at it
briefly before being separated.
(Mitchell later returned to the
bench, but Hicks watched the rest
of the game from a table where T-.
shirts were being sold.)
When play resumed, Harmony
scored eight of the next points to
tie the game, 28-28, at the half.
"Unstable creatures," Conch
coach Glenn Hayes Sr. said dur-
ing intermission. "Oh, Lord, that
broke the momentum."
The third quarter ended, 37-
37, after Storr and Harmony's
Veronica Morel. exchanged 3-
point shots.
Then came a wild fourth quar-
ter in which the Longhorns con-
verted turnovers into layups and
made 12 of 15 free throws.
Trailing, 41-40, they ran off 10
consecutive points for a 50-41
lead. The Conchs accustomed to
winning by wide margins,
seethed. ("They all got attitude
when they got behind," Hayes


said later.)
Storr kept trying. She made a
3-pointer and then hit three foul
shots to bring the Conchs to with-
in 55-51 with 22 seconds to play.
Harmony then played keep-away,
forcing Key West to foul, closed
the game with four free throws.
Composure wasn't the
Conchs' strong suit. After the
teams shook hands after the
game, guard Alicia Arrazola,
apparently angered by what a
Harmony player had said to her,
had to be carried screaming from
the gym by teammate Shanyia
Watson.
While Hayes apologized for
the two incidents to the departing
Harmony players, the Conchs
were out in the lobby, still
stunned by the bench fight.
"Ridiculous," said Watson.
"Our own team fighting, definite-
ly not good. After that, we started
choking." Added Storr, who had a
career-high 26 points:
"Embarrassing, just bad."
If a lesson was learned, Hayes
said it was, "You've got to stay


Dolphins close but ultimately fall "


focused, regardless of what hap-
pens." He said his team, which is
7-2 and will play in a Spanish


River tournament Jan. 2-3, will
put the unpleasantness behind
them.

put up - as Freeman called
them -"ridiculous" numbers.
The junior center dominated the
paint, scoring 26 points and haul-
ing in 23 rebounds.
-As Fieeman pointed out, it
was a game of eight- to 10-point
spurts by, the Conchs, forcing
NMarathon time and again to
scrape back into the game.
Key West built an early 13-6
lead, w which the Dolphins closed
to 13-12 just before the end of
the first quarter. The lead was
back up to five in the second
quarter, but a fast-break dunk by
Dolphins freshman Dwayne Ellis
closed the gap and sent the home
crowd into a frenzy.
"Dwayne's dunk was huge.
That was the loudest I heard the
new gfvm and we had a great
crowd," Freeman said.
Once again, though, the
Conchs went on a run and built a
29-19 lead in the second quarter.
An Ellis layup closed the gap to
29-22 at the half.
A three-pointer by junior A.J.
Freeman narrowed the Conch
gap to three earl\ in the third
quarter, but. a Sibera breakaway


basket and a baseline drive by
Keith Valdez saw the lead bal-
loon up to 11. Sibera nailed two
free throws to make it a 44-31
and it looked like the Conchs
would pull away.
After the Dolphins pulled
within six in the. fourth, Key
West went on another 10-0 run
that included baskets by Nick
Scammacca, Jeff Sullivan,
Valdez and Sibera. Their lead
was 57-41 with just 4:08 remain-
ing.
But the Dolphins went on a
run sparked by a technical foul
after a shooting foul on Ellis. He
sunk three of four free throws
and Leachman made two consec-
utive baskets to make it a 61-52


game.
A Kenny Mangum layup
made it 61-58 with 56 seconds
remaining. But the Dolphins
were forced to foul and the
Conchs made six consecutive
free throws to put the game out
of reach.
Key West (5-3) was sched-
uled to play Tuesday afternoon at
the Mariner High School
Holiday Invitational in Fort
Myers. Results were not avail-
able at press time.
The Dolphins (3-6) are off
until after the holiday break.
They're scheduled to visit

Florida Bay is lit


Happy holidays to all. This
week is when we have the most
visitors enjoying the warmest
weather available in the country,
along with the widest variety of
fishing there is (after all, what we
call a cold front, they call a heat
wave).
It's all best put in perspective.
To the locals in the Keys, ice is
what we put in cocktails. To the
Visitors, it's what they scrape off
windshields back home. We can
get out on the water every day;
they have to wait until it's not
hard anymore. We can go on the
water and play on a Jet Ski; they
have to use a snowmobile.
This is why they're here, so
let's talk about what's going on.
Most of the bay has received a
new influx of cobia, mackerel
and snapper. Plenty of red
grouper have also moved in from
deeper waters in search of the bait
fish, which also have been
brought in with the recent series
of cool fronts. Areas eight to 12
miles out have been full of large
mackerel that provide a good
fight.
- The bay is also full of trout,
although they are still out of sea-
son right now; but they are fun to
catch. Redfish, bluefish, ladyfish,
lane snapper and many others are
also plentiful.
The most popular species to
catch in the bay is mangrove
snapper and they seem to be just
about everywhere in the tall grass
bottom areas four-plus miles out.
A good chum line is essential.
For bait, live shrimp will pro-
vide you with the most action.

sides are all
top baits for

The best

are the

around and
just to the

about five
to eight
miles north


of the Vaca Cut Bridge in
Marathon.
If you have the time and wants
to learn more about fishing in
Keys waters, -we are holding a
free fishing seminar from 6 to 8
p.m. Sunday at our Marine
Educational Center at 3740
Overseas Highway, across from
the Marathon Community Park,
on that very subject - pending
the move of the Dolphin-Jets
game to the evening. Then we'll
end early.
The bridge channels have
been very active lately and this
week is no exception. The advan-
tage of these is that they can be
fished in almost any weather and
are very easy to find --even for
those not familiar with the local
waters.
Again, good chum and live
shrimp will provide you with a
great deal of action as well as
shots at some very nice fish. The
list of prized species at these ven-
ues is long.
Although you may, find that
you're catching many smaller

fish and some that you would
rather not, be ready for that big
fanny kicker that always seems to
come along just when you are not
ready. There have been some
very nice black grouper caught
.lately at many of the deeper
bridge channels.
Along most of what I call the
belly of the islands, the areas just
off the southern side of the
Middle Keys outward to and
including Hawk Channel, there
has been a variety of mangrove
snapper as well as some nice
mutton and hogfish caught. Big
lane snapper as well as some nice
cobia have been taken in this
area, too.
The smooth grass bottom has
been best for the mutton and hog-
fish, while the subtle rock out-
crops have been active for the
mangrove, lane snapper and
grouper. Drifting the grass bot-
tom while anchoring on the rock
piles is your best bet. Here again,
live shrimp has been the hottest
bait for action. Look for schools
of mackerel along the channel.
You can spot them under flocks
of feeding birds.
Speaking of birds (not the
ones you get from fellow drivers
on the highway), they have been
working a good supply of bait
fish along the reef line and just
beyond. This area has been hot
for sails as well as a variety of
tunas and a few wahoo.
