'Jet noise brouhaha grows


Group calls for
full assessment
of the effects
By SEAN KINNEY"
skinney@keynoter.coni


A Lower Keys homeowners'
coalition objecting to U.S. Navy
jet noise is pushing for a full-
scale re\ iew of a Na\\ en', Iron-
nmental impact srud\
Members of the AM-10
Coalition sa\ the assessment
completed in 2003 makes little
mention of loud F A- 18 Hornets
and concludes those ne%%er lets
\ith bigger engines have no sig-
nificant impact at Na'al Air
Station Ke\ West or nearb\
neighborhoods.
"We think that the Na\\
needs to do a full en% Lronmental
assessment." IM-10 Coaliti6n
Chairman Don Riggs said. "We
understand that the t pe of air-
craft and the prevailing % minds
affect the % as the\ fl\."
But Riggs also said there
weren't as man\ noise com-
plaints %hen the Na%\ \as using
an alternate run\a% and flying


the F/A-18s.
In fact, the -Department of
Defense says it is looking into
the process used to generate an
environmental assessment at
Boca Chica.
An environmental assess-
ment, among other things, looks
into how Navy functions affect
the surrounding community. If
the findings show significant
.impacts, then the Navy can order
a more in-depth environmental
impact statement.
However, in the case of the
F/A-18s flying from Boca Chica
Field, the Navy concluded their
operation did not rise to that
level of impact.
And that's what the M-10
Coalition is now focused on,
Riggs said.
A review of the 232'pages of
the 2003 environmental assess-
ment yielded even scant mention
of the F/A-18s, he said. Most of
the document focuses on dredg-
ing requirements at the Navy-
owned Truman Harbor. The
dredging mentioned in the report
was eventually undertaken by
the U.S. Army Corps of


Engineers and completed in
2007.
Until recent repairs were
completed on the main strip at
Boca Chica, the Navy was using
an alternate runway that directed
jet traffic away from neighbor-
hoods on Stock Island, Geiger
Key and Shark Key, among oth-
ers.
"During that time, I'm not
sure there were any resident
complaints," Riggs said.
NAS Key West spokesman
Jim Brooks says the Navy is of
the opinion that they fully com-
plied with National Environ-
mental Policy Act regulations
that ,guide' the environmental
assessment. Brooks said that was
signed off on by the secretary of
the Navy.
But now, Lower Keys T'esi-
dents complain about the stress
of dealing with low-flying jets
that emit noise in excess of 100
decibels closer than 1,000 'feet
above their homes.
. The Navy and county offi-
cials were supposed to sit down
this past Tuesday and discuss jet
noise in public forum.
Now the talks are tentatively
planned for early May.

Key Largo burglary
suspect is tasered

A man suspected of breaking
into a house on Red Bird Road in
Key Largo early Thursday mom-


ing was tasered and pepper-
sprayed by Sheriff's Office
deputies and now he faces a
long list of charges.
Tony St. Pierre, 38, is charged
with two counts of battery on a
law enforcement officer or fire-


fighter, .two counts of resisting
arrest with violence, burglary, and
resisting arrest without violence.
Deputy Becky Herrin says that
around 5 a.m. Thursday, a neigh-
bor of the burglarized house
heard noise coming from it and


called the Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Ian Barnett responded,
found evidence the home had
been broken into and saw a bicy-
cle inside through a back window.
He backed off and called for more
officers to respond, Herrin says.


She says St. Pierre then rode out
from behind the house on the bike.
St. Pierre was grabbed, strug-
gled, and then was tassered and
pepper-sprayed. He finally gave
up and was handcuffed.

officials following criminal con-
victions.
"Here we're going to talk
about reducing people and
going after teachers or bus
drivers or food-service work-
ers. You know, they haven't
failed us," board member John
Dick said. "We've been failed
by the people in that district
administration building. We
need to reduce there."
The move comes in ,the
wake of continually surfacing
allegations of misspending,
credit card fraud arid theft
involving former Adult
Education Coordinator
Monique. Acevedo, who
resigned March 3 when the
allegations surfaced.
State auditors as'many as
five at a time have been in
the Keys for nearly a month
examining records, and State
Attorney Dennis Ward and offi-
cials from the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement are also investi-
gating.
Ward said investigators may
soon go to Creedmoor, N.C.,
where Monique Acevedo is
believed to have gone. after
resigning. She's from North
Carolina and moved to Key
West in the 1990s.
Ward said one of his investi-
gators could go up there to look
into items that may have been
purchased in the Keys and
shipped to North Carolina, and
investigate how airline tickets
to North Carolina were paid
for. The State Attorney's Office
could also ask investigators
with the North Carolina State
Police to find the information
Keys investigators are seeking.
Meanwhile, Richard
Collins, the School Board's
attorney, said digital security
camera footage thatcould show
who placed items recently
found in a storage-unit at Key
West High School is now in the
hands of State Attorney investi-
gators. Those items are thought
to -have been bought by
Monique Acevedo with her

purchasing card.
The footage was down-,
loaded and handed over to
Ward's office late Thursday
afternoon, Collins said.
Further allegations of
wrongdoing by other employ-
ees have also recently surfaced,
including people overspending
on construction materials for
other uses, and people buying
plane tickets for district travel
and then driving to their desti-
nation and cashing in or
reusing the tickets.
On Friday, the School Board
authorized Miami-based foren-
sic investigator Richard
Fechter to analyze more than
$22,000 worth of transactions
on 93 district-issued Bank of
America credit cards since last
school year.
Fechter, with $5,000 already
authorized by the board nearly
two weeks ago, said he has cre-
ated a database comparing
actual bank transactions with
.what district employees
claimed the purchases were for
along with actual purchase
receipts.
A comparison by The
Reporter of such information
for Monique Acevedo showed
tens of thousands of dollars in
questionable purchases, where
clothing, furniture, DVDs and
other seemingly personal items
were reported to the district as
being "textbooks" and other
','supplies" for programs in the
Adult Education department.
Fechter will also investigate
possible abuses with plane tick-
et and other travel reimburse-
ments as well as allegations of
a hostile work environment
created by Randy Acevedo and
his administrators.
The board is expected to
vote at its next meeting, April
14, on hiring a headhunter to
find a permanent internal audi-
tor and defining the require-
ments for that job.
Griffiths said state law
allows a broad scope for that
position, and he even alluded to
the job being modeled after the
current position of business and
fiscal services director held by
Pedro Fraga.
That six-figure administra-
tive position, Griffiths said after
the meeting, could then be elim-
inated.

Super's airline ticket raises questions


Travel agent
had problems
with district
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The travel agent who booked
trips for Monroe County School
District employees said she cut
ties with the district in March
2008- because of difficulty deal-
ing with the staff, including the
superintendent.
Donna Golan, who with her
husband Keith owns Key West
Travel, said her agency booked
travel for the Monroe County
School District from 2007 to
2008. She personally handled
bookings starting in January
2008, and stopped dealing with
the district two months later.
"I cut them off. They were too
difficult to work with," she said.
Before Golan took over book-
ing trips for the district, the
agency's manager did the work,
Golan said during a telephone
interview. She did not name the
manager, who is no longer
employed there.
State Attorney Dennis Ward
confirmed to The Reporter this
week that his staff is investigating
whether some School District

Once the closure is lifted, the

plane tickets for conferences but
drove instead, and then turned the
tickets in for cash or used them
for personal trips.
School District officials say
there's no indication that the trav-
el agency was knowingly
involved in any wrongdoing.
School Board attorney
Richard Collins, who is also
investigating possible fraud by
schools employees including
former administrator Monique
Acevedo said he has contacted
Golan about her agency's busi-
ness with the district.
Golan said she was never
asked to do anything wrong or
illegal, but she did not like the
way she was being paid by
schools employees for flights.
Employees used purchase
orders, often reading them to
Golan by phone, she said, which
meant her agency would have to
pay upfront for tickets, and it
couldn't receive payment until
after she received a copy of the
purchase order.
"I was waiting 30 to 60.days to
get paid. We pay up front. We're
not a bank," she said.
Golan said she tried to per-
suade school employees to get at
least one credit card to pay for
travel instead of using purchase
orders. Sandy Shaw, a school dis-
trict administrative aide, said the

Amid a growing investigation

trict show Monique Acevedo
spent thousands of dollars on per-
sonal shopping with her school
district credit card.
Her husband, schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo,
said his wife told him she had
done nothing wrong. Over sever-
al weeks of news coverage,
Monique Acevedo has not made-
any public statement denying that
she stole school district funds.
Randy Acevedo referred ques-
tions about his travel airange-
ments to Shaw, the administrative
aide. But she said she only dealt
with Golan once. Before then,


she dealt with the agency manag-
er.
One trip she did arrange with
Golan- was a flight to Tampa for a
conference for Randy Acevedo.
But after complaining to Golan
about the booking, Shaw said,
she ended up finding a better
flight through another agency.
She'later said Acevedo decid-
ed not to go to the conference,
according to Golan.
Golan said her travel comput-
er showed that another agency
had booked Acevedo on the same
flight she had -the flight he
supposedly didn't want, or need.
Golan called Shaw, she said,
telling her 'I'm. just checking
about Randy's ticket to Tampa.'
[Shaw] said he decided not to go.
She didn't know that I knew he
got the other ticket," Golan said.
Golan said Acevedo was one
of about five district employees
who. booked travel through her
agency.

Cigarette tax good.

but comes far too late

Squeezing toothpaste back in the tube is a Sisyphean task.
Not because it's hard.to do, but more like it's rather pointless
in the end not much is recovered and you make a big.mess.
That's the way the Florida Legislature is beginning to -feel
about raising cigarette taxes by $1 a pack.
The federal gov ernment looking for ways to shore up rev-
enue didn't waste any time imposing a new 62-cent-per-
pack federal tax, which went into effect Wednesday.
Yet the debate in state House and Senate.. committees in
Tallahassee this. week sounded almost futile, first trying to
overcome objections by Big Tobacco, and then attempting to
actually forecast how many millions in new revenue such sin
taxes can raise.
It should be noted Florida has not raised its cigarette taxes
since 1990. By contrast, federal taxes have been raised four
times since then going from 16 cents a pack to 62 cents
today.
But note those federal tax hikes came in stages. Florida's pro-
posed $1-per-pack increase in the state tax represents a 295
percent increase from the current 34 cents in one fell swoop.
Here comes the part where even Sisyphus would groan:
Critics of taxing cigarettes say it will simply increase smug-
gling of illegal cigarettes into Florida in an effort toevade high
state levies.
A study cited during Senate hearings this week actually pre-
dicted that smugglers could supply as much as 25 percent of all
cigarettes smoked in Florida.
Whoa. That's a lot of illegal smokes.
Anyone who watched the Sopranos on TV got a lesson in the
risks of that illegal trade, which brought down federal agents and
big jail time for offenders caught smuggling contraband cigs.
State Sen. Ted Deutch of Boca Raton scoffs at these dire pre-
dictions coming from.the anti-tax lobby.
He's quoted in the.Palni Beach Post as saying, "The sugges-
tion that everyone is going to leave the state to buy cigarettes
or that a counterfeit Tony Soprano is going to take over ciga-
rette sales is just scare tactics."
Of course, Deutch ignores the stream of puff addicts in South
Florida -- the state's largest population base who line up at
Indian reservation outlets in south Broward County to buy
cheap smokes exempt from federal taxes. That's perfectly legal.
Bottom line: The Legislature's efforts to find new sources of
revenue seem to always suffer the curse of Sisyphus push-
ing a big revenue rock uphill, and always falling short.

College president doesn't need taxpayer bailout money


EDITOR:
For those of us who read the Keynoter news-
paper's front-page article, "College board gives
prez $42K," on March 28, many will agree that
this sounds like a Washington-Wall Street bailout.
Let's see what I can make out of this article.
Initially, the college president was receiving
free housing from a private donor via a foundation
at Florida Keys Community College, paid directly
to the president's landlord to cover the president's
housing expense for her and her family.
Now the private funds have dried out, and
President Jill Landesberg-Boyle wants the tax-
payers to pick up the bill. She said if the housing
allowance she is currently receiving were to be
removed, "It would fundamentally alter the
terms" of her employment to something other
than what she had agreed to.
Hey, what does the president of the college
mean by this statement? Is she saying that she is
going to pack her bags and go because the funds
have run out for her housing expenses? Does she
really care about this little community college in
the boondocks of the Florida Keys?
Here we are presented with the idea of offering
a $3,500 monthly housing bailout for the presi-
dent of FKCC so she can pay her rent on a gor-
geous home in the exclusive Casa Marina area.


The FKCC board votes to bailout the prezz"
with taxpayer money under pressure of her resig-
nation if her requirement is not met. Why does
the college board give in to this demand?
Anyone with a sense of fiscal responsibility
will agree that the president's six-figure salary
should be adequate to pay her own housing
expense, leaving that $42,000 per year to benefit
FKCC students and the community FKCC serves.
I recommend that the FKCC board treat the
$42,000 housing allowance to the president as a
bonus, and they can tax it as income given to her
at a 90 percent rate, just like Wall Street's CEOs
are taxed. This way, we, the taxpayers, will be
partially off the hook for this particular bailout.
We don't need to tolerate this type of expendi-
ture given to a college president when her salary
is over four times the national average, and her
health care, Cadillac and retirement are paid in
full by the college, which is funded by the local
and statewide taxpayers.
I believe the Florida Keys Community
College board and its chairman are out of touch
with the reality of our times.
This bailout, we can stop.

Ros-Lehtinen wrong on stimulus plan


EDITOR: 0
I am glad some Marathon officials traveled to
Washington, D.C., to try to secure stimulus funds
for the sewer project. We need all the help we
can"get in the Keys.
Even as they make the effort, it is important
to remember that our U.S. representative, Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen, voted-against the economic recov-
ery package.

Village fails residents
EDITOR:
Regarding our proposed Islamorada sewage
system: I'm not going to play he said, she said,
or they. said. The bottom line is our government
representatives in Islamorada have failed us.
After almost 10 years of deliberation and
planning, all we have is many thousands of dol-
lars spent, many man-hours wasted, several law-
suits and a poorly designed system on Plantation
Key. This mess can be blamed directly on nearly
10 years of mismanagement by both our elected
and appointed officials.
The Florida Legislature gave the Keys a 10-
year period to address this issue. By any stan-
dard, that should have been sufficient. After Pearl
Harbor,. we mobilized our nation, modernized
our military (including the rebuilding of a fleet),
fought a global war on two fronts, and defeated a
determined enemy. All in fewer than 10 years. It
took fewer than 10 years to plan and execute a
successful U.S. mission to put men on.the moon.
Mayors, council people and administrators
come and go, but the damage they do always
remains for the taxpayers to fix.
Robert Bottona
Islamorada.


Our Republican governor put people above
politics and supports the stimulus, and he has
taken plenty of heat from his party for doing so.
A Web site, www.flarecovery.com, provides
details on where the money is going in Florida so
we can stay up to date on how the funds are
being spent. Sections of the site are not yet com-
plete, but it will be very informative. At
www.recovery.gov, people can view nation-
wide specifics.
Unfortunately, Ros-Lehtinen determined that
loyalty to her party trumped what people in her
district.need. Therefore, she chose to vote against
the economic recovery package. When it is our
turn to vote in 2010, it is important to remember
this if she runs for re-election.

Boater education key for Florida Bay


EDITOR:
Your article "New rules for Florida
.Bay" (March 21) illustrates the impor-
tant role boaters can play in helping to
protect Florida Bay, as well as the need
for a strong education component in the
general management plan for
Everglades National Park.
As many local boaters know, navi-
gating Florida Bay is complicated and
requires great care. Inexperienced or
careless boaters can easily damage sea-
grass and mud flat habitat with their
propellers. Furthermore, when boaters
run aground, they risk damage to their
'boat and to the bay floor. These types of
impacts can do lasting harm to the bay's
sensitive ecosystem, which puts at risk
fishing opportunities in and around the
Bay as well as our local economy.
Eco-Mariner works to combat this
risk through education. This new, free,
voluntary online course teaches neces-


sary Florida Bay boating skills like pol-
ing a flats boat, and resource protection
skills such as proper catch and release
methods. Endorsed by multiple local
angling, paddling, boating, business,
government, and conservation organiza-
tions, Eco-Mariner.is an essential tool
for Florida Bay boaters.
Eco-Mariner will make its debut this
April at www.ecomariner.org and
will offer instructor-led courses later this
year. Educated boaters can help to
ensure the long-term preservation of
Florida Bay for the enjoyment and eco-
nomic prosperity of our children and
grandchildren.

Coverage of Florida Bay meeting flawed


EDITOR:
Re: the Keynoter .article by Kevin
Wadlow from April 1, "We're being- lied
to."
As superintendent of Everglades
National Park, I'd like to point out a few
inaccuracies and express some concerns
on the headline and tone of the article
written about the park's public meeting in
Key Largo on March 30.
The headline, "We're being lied to,
anglers say about Everglades park pro-
posals," (online version) is misleading,
as it implies multiple anglers, not just
Mr. DelosSantos, expressed this view.
Although Mr. DelosSantos is the Key
Largo Guides Association president, it
was not clear that he was speaking for
the organization.
About 100 attended the meeting and
15 people, with diverse perspectives,
made formal public comments. Many
others stayed to talk with park staff. The
article does not reflect the range of views
presented, with many recognizing the
need for management changes in Florida
Bay due to documented resource impacts.
It seems that the opportunity to refer
to national park managers as liars was to
grab readers' attention. I think it does a
. disservice to so many in the Keys that
care about the park and Florida Bay. It
provides a sensational headline, but
ignores the cooperative effort between
the public and park to develop a sound.
plan and does not reflect the overall tone
of this meeting.
The article also states that "alterna-
tives 2 and 3 would target specific areas
as no-motor zones.".Alternative 2 would
not zone the bay with no-motor zones.
The park appreciates the Keynoter's
longstanding interest and coverage of
park news. We hope that you continue to
do so in a factual and accurate manner.
In the case of this round of meetings, -


.including information on their primary
purpose to gain public input for the
long-term management of Everglades
National Park and ways for the public
to get involved would be a service to
your readers.
As superintendent, I pledged at this
meeting and reiterate here that my staff
and I are committed to listening to and
working with all stakeholders. We look
forward to incorporating the vast local
knowledge from your readers and Keys
residents that know Florida Bay so well
to help develop a plan that protects the
park's unique resources while also pro-
viding for public use and enjoyment.
I'm confident that with continued
strong public involvement, the draft
general management plan that will be
released next year will reflect that col-
laborative spirit.

Don't waste good food
EDITOR:
I am not really a snowbird, but do
head to the North Carolina mountains
in May. We who enjoy the wonderful
winters in the Keys can help out the
local food pantry when we leave.
Most of us do'not want to carry
food back and forth. Instead of tossing
out unopened food packages, donate
them. The First Baptist Church of
Islamorada feeds the homeless and
maintains a food pantry for people who
need help feeding their families. Just
call 664-4910 to arrange a drop-off
time. In this difficult economy, many
people are in need.

Dog park would harm
EDITOR:
The Rotary Children's Park is a love-
ly 2.5-acre gem in our little town. Let-
me make this clear, I have no objections
to the plans for a dog park in Marathon.
I am a dog lover and have two, Molly
and Toby. However, I strongly object to
any of our Children's Park being given
to the dogs.
The Rotary Children's Park, our Field
of Dreams, was secured for the children
by the people of this town. The park is
perfect for small children and the only
park in Marathon where pets are prohib-,
ited. Small children and dogs are not an
easy, safe mix. Most dog parks prohibit
small children for this same reason.
Where will thle ones and the dog
ones come together? The parking lot, the
water fountains and the bathrooms. This
is a given and needs no research.
I live close to the park. Dog parks are
commonly named Dog Bark. I am afraid
that the Marathon Dog Bark may ruin
the peaceful enjoyment of our home. I
have found no studies by the city to
investigate the impacts. There is no traf-
fic or parking study. There is no
stormwater study, though the land slopes

from U.S. 1 down from the proposed
dog park area toward the playground and
parking lot.
There are no proposed plans or rules
for the park. The city already approved
development plans for a resort, at the
end of 75th Street based in part on a
traffic study that did not include this
new use.
How many dogs will be in the park
routinely at any one time, 20,40? How
many cars will be in the small parking
lot, especially if it's Johnny's fifth birth-
day party on a pretty Saturday morning?
How many cars will be turning into 75th
Street while residents are trying to safely
get onto U.S. 1? Do dog parks spray
pesticides to control fleas? Spraying is
not good for kids or the wildlife, but nei-
ther are fleas and ticks.
My best wishes to the folks wanting a
place fortheir dogs to run, but the
Children's Park should be. out of the
question for the people of our town. We
united to build this park and that was a
wonderful thing. I hope we unite again
to preserve it for the children:

Party raises $10K for Habitat


EDITOR:
Habitat for Humanity of the Upper
Keys held its annual cocktail party on
March 15 and it was another huge suc-
cess. The preliminary numbers look like
the event netted around $10,000 to help
Habitat build affordable homes in the
Upper Keys.
Tap Johnson was kind enough to let
Habitat use his oceanfront home for the
party this year and guests were excited to
tour the lovely hofie, enjoy the beautiful
view and listen to tropical music by
Jimmy Ray as they sipped cocktails by
the historic lighthouse on the property;
Noted meteorologist Max Mayfield
was this year's special guest speaker and
the audience listened with great 'interest '
as he talked about everyone's (or at least


every Floridian's) favorite subject, hurri-
canes. Meteorologist Don Noe was in the
audience and helped make the question-
and-answer period all the more educa-
tional and entertaining for the party goers.
And of course none of this would have
been possible without the many volun-
teers who helped organize and run the
event. A big thanks also goes out to the
dozens and dozens of businesses that
donated auction items for this year's
event. During a down economy, the local
businesses and people still came out and
helped us have a great event.

U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez is

to honor "the Cuban exile com-

officials on Monday. But he
isn't planning a town-hall type
of meeting like that held last

Nelson.
Martinez, a Republican

Institute on Duval Street at 7
p.m. Sunday to "pay tribute to


the institute and discuss the role
it has played both for Cubans in
exile and in their struggle for
rights in Cuba," his press office
says.
Then on Monday at 11:15
a.m., he plans to meet with
local officials in County,
Commission chambers at the
Harvey Government Center on
Truman Avenue to "discuss'
current federal issues and their
effects on Monroe County,
including the economy oppor-

Agencies: We're ready


for Cuba migration


Local, state
federal staffs
dust off plans
ByRYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com


If Cuba's borders open, emer-
gency officials in the Keys on all
levels local, state and federal
- are ready for the expected
mass migration.
That's the message that came
out of a Thursday gathering of
representatives from agencies as
diverse as the FBI and U.S. Coast
Guard.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi called the session at the
Marathon Government Center to
"dust off' a plan that's been in
place for some time. Gastesi told
the Keynoter the idea behind the
meeting wasn't making unneces-
sary changes, but for participants
in the plan to get reacquainted.
"When things are sitting on
the shelf, you don't think about it
until you need to. We haven't
talked about it for over three
years, so we thought it was
important to force people to take
it off the shelf," Gastesi said.
"That was the main point of the
meeting, and to get to know each
other.".
"That's, refreshing to have
everyone kind of check in and
say,' We're ready,'" he said.
President Obama's pledge to
ease travel restrictions to Cuba
prompted the meeting.


Michael Scully, chief of staff
for Homeland Security Task
Force-Southeast, talked about the
federal government's "Vigilant
Sentry" plan to deal with mass
migration.
President Fidel Castro opened
his borders in the summer of
1994 and more than 30,000
migrants rafted to the Keys in just
a couple of months.
In 1980, Castro opened the
Port of Mariel, and American cit-
izens trailered their boats south to
the Keys, where they launched
toward Cuba to pick up relatives
and friends. When the Mariel
boatlift came to an end, more
than 125,000 Cubans had arrived
in South Florida.
Scully said intelligence nowa-
days helps the U.S. to prepare
early for such events. He pointed
to a potential Haitian migration in
2004, saying the problem is not
exclusive to Cuba.
"It was just the potential that
was suggested by conditions in
country. So we were ramped up
... even though the likelihood of
significant landfall was low. But
the point is to be ahead of the
curve," Scully said.
As Sheriff Bob Peryam point--
ed out, the county's plan is a first
response meant to last no more
than 72 hours. After that, the fed-
eral government is expected to
take control.
"One of the first things we
have to understand from local
law enforcement's perspective is


this is not our problem. We're
here to help the federal govern-
ment," Peryanm said. "I hope we.
see you within 72 hours and if we
don't, then we're really going to
have a problem."
Representatives from munici-
palities, county and city fire res-
cue departments, U.S. Customs
and Border Protection,
Immigration and Customs
Enforcement, the Department of
Health, the FBI, Miami-Dade
County, U.S. Coast Guard and
U.S. Navy were among those
explaining their plans for a Cuba
with open borders.
In 2007, the county Tourist
Development Council prepared a
report on the specifics of a
response to a mass migration
from Cuba. It takes in everything
from identifying boats that look
to be headed to Cuba to pick up
friends or family, to what the air-
ports here should be prepared for.

Feds get sweep


in poaching case


Delph convicted,
Dreiforts to lose
two properties ,
Keynoter Staff


Florida Keys Featured Properties...


A day after a renowned Key
West charter fishing captain was
convicted of a federal conspira-
cy charge for his involvement in
the largest Keys lobster poach-
ing case ever, one of his five co-
defendants was sentenced to a
year of probation.
Thursday, U.S. District Court
Judge Jose Martinez spared John
Niles, 50, of LaBelle, who earli-
er pleaded guilty to conspiracy,
prison time. He faced five years
in prison but was spared time
behind bars for, among other
things, his cooperation in the
case.
Wednesday, a federal jury.
convicted charter captain
Michael Delph, 39, of Key West
of conspiracy.
Earlier, joining Niles in
pleading out to conspiracy, were
David Dreifort, 41, and Denise
Dreifort, 48, both of Cudjoe,
Key; Robert H. Hammer, 46, of
Miami; and Sean N. Reyngoudt,
25, of Summerland Key.
Hammer and Reyngoudt are
set for sentencing June 1, the
Dreiforts the next day. They face
the same five years Niles could
have received. So does Delph,
who is scheduled for sentencing
June 10.
In addition, the Dreiforts
must sell two properties in the
Keys including their home on
Cudjoe Key, which was the stag-
ing ground for the criminal con-
duct, to reimburse NOAA's costs
and pay damages in the case.
The Dreiforts will pay
NOAA the proceeds from the
sale of the houses, up to a maxi-
mum -of $1.1 million. The
money recovered as damages
will be used by NOAA' to
remove more than 1,500 of the
casitas that were illegally placed
in the sanctuary over the years.
According to. evidence presented

in the criminal violations.
More than 1,700 pounds of

RoboCroc dies at MetroZoo


Keynoter Staff


RoboCroc, the 10-foot
endangered American croco-
dile whose shattered head was
put together with tool-shed
hardware last month, died
Thursday morning at
MetroZoo in Miami-Dade.
"I, know that the results of.
the necropsy won't be out for


awhile," MetroZoo intercom-
munications manager Andrea
Qbregon told the Keynoter.
"It's so sad. It was a long shot,
though. We knew that."
The giant male predator had
been close to death after hav-
ing its head crushed by a car in
the Florida Keys in December:

Boat ramps to cost

Despite Vice Mayor Don
Vasil's objections Tuesday, the
Marathon City Council approved
nearly $92,000 for improvements
to public boat ramps.
Part of the money $69,298
- is due to a change order on the
33rd Street project, while the
other $22,400 will be used to
build a T-dock at the recently
refurbished ramp adjacent to the
former Quay Restaurant property
at mile marker 54.
The city has been attempting
to repair the public ramps for at
least two years now, but has been
delayed numerous times because
of permitting issues with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers and
other agencies.
Vasil, who has a reputation for
scrutinizing city expenditures,
said he. was unhappy with the
last-miinute increases. He noted
how construction costs have
decreased significantly in a strug-
gling economy.
"All of these projects coming
in below bid, but it was the coun-
cil's decision to move forward,"
Vasil said, alluding to his feeling
the city could have gotten a


cheaper price. The city's contract
with local firm Coral Marine
Construction is for $992,901. -
Among the items included in
the change order for 33rd Street:
Improved drainage ordered by
the South Florida Water
Management District, replacing a
rotting roof on the restroom
building, total replacement of a
concrete dock and the installation
of a lateral sewer hookup.
Vasil also questioned why the
dock at the Quay boat ramp, also
being installed by Coral Marine,
will cost so much less.
"The real purpose for a dock
at the Quay boat ramp is some-
thing to tie up to quickly, where-
as the [docks] on 33rd Street are
meant to be more substantial
structures," Planning Director
George Garrett said.
Residents complained about
footing on the new Quay ramp
and that a spit used in the past
was removed during the ramp's
construction. Coral Marine will
install a 40-foot long wooden
ramp there.
The city has a letter from
Monroe County saying it will
reimburse the cost of construction.

Trinidad Joe running for U.S. Senate


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key Wester Joe Allen says
he's running for the U.S. Senate
seat being vacated by South
SFlorida Republican Mel
Martinez. -
Allen, a Democrat also known
as Trinidad Joe, has never held
elected office but he has run for
Monroe County School Board
twice and the Key West City
Commission once.
With so many big names in
Florida politics, Allen acknowl-
edges that getting elected in 2010
.is a long shot.
"In the next year and a half,
I'll be roaming the state of
Florida. I'm going to visit every
county. It's a major undertaking
but it's doable. I have the time,
the interest and the dedication to
do this," he says.
But certainly not the money.
U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, a
Miami Democrat, has already
raised $1.7 million in his bid to
replace Martinez. State Sen. Dan
Gelber of Miami Beach, also a
Democrat, has raised $400,000.
Other names out there talked
about as candidates include for-
mer state House-Speaker Marco
Rubio, a Miami Republican, and
Republican congressmen Connie


Mack and Vera
Buchanan,
both of South-
west Florida.
GOP Gov.
Charlie Crist
has not said if
he's running,
but there's lots
ALLEN of speculation
he will.
All of that is not deterring
Allen, who says. President
Obama's historic run has inspired
him.
"It's a new order in the
world," Allen says "In fact,
there's also about 65 new, con-
gressmen for the first time. The
world- is changing. I'm running
this like a presidential campaign
in the state of Florida it will be
that massive and that inclusive."
Allen, a retired educator, uses
the acronym SAFE as the basis
for his campaign platform, which
comprises:
Sunshine is America's
Future Energy expanding
solar power as a way to increase
jobs.
Safety for American
Families in Emergencies a call

ness and response.


Free Cutter, activists say


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Dolphin-freedom advocates
plan to stage a 10 a.m. demon-
stration today in Key. Largo to
hasten the release of a spotted
dolphin in, rehabilitation.
The dolphin, named Cutter,
shouldn't have been captured
from waters near Key West in the
first place, said Key Largo
activist Rick Trout.
Some boat captains with Key
West dolphin-watching opera-
tions agree that the dolphin didn't
appear to be in distress and didn't
need to be taken from the water
near.the Key West Yacht Club on
Feb. 14.
However, Coast Guard offi-
cials and other Key West boaters
worried the protected marine
mammal was lingering in an area
with heavy boat traffic.
"We are still waiting for health
clearance and offshore spotted


dolphin- survey results," said
stranding coordinator Blair Mase
Guthrie of the National Marine
Fisheries Service. "It may be a
few more weeks."
Veterinarians were scheduled
to check Cutter this week at the
Marine Mammal Conservancy
site near mile marker 102, but
whether the visit occurred could
not be confirmed. MMC volun-
teers have said'Cutter appears to
be underweight.
The offshore-species dolphin
was originally thought to be a
calf, but an expert concluded that
Cutter may be up to 5 years old.
Guthrie said Cutter should be
released if possible, preferably
near a spotted-dolphin pod.
Freedom activist Russ Rector
said the dolphin has already been
in captivity for several weeks-,
and should be released as soon as
possible.

reason I did is because I've
always understood the job as


such. You're not just the senator

Allen, 62, moved to America
from Trinidad in 1958 and has
lived and worked in
Pennsylvania, New York and
California. He has lived in Key
West the past 15 years.
"Although it's my first run for
this level of office, I'm quite
knowledgeable," Allen says.

Workforce homes complex appears dead


Swift can't get
financing for
40-unit project
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Paradise might not be land-
ing in Marathon after all, as
talks of an Ed Swift-backed
workforce housing project took
a turn for the worse at Tuesday's
City Council meeting.
The council in late 2007
granted Swift's Old Town Key
West Development firm the
right to build a 40-unit work-
force housing development on


city-owned land at 104th Street.
But other than residents nam-
ing the project "Paradise
Landings" via an Internet voting
campaign, little progress has
been made on the job.
Swift appeared before the
council Tuesday and said engi-
neering and plans were com-
plete, but no permits have been
applied for. He blamed the
recession for holding up financ-
ing.
"Without having that ability
to qualify your end user [for
financing], the lending institu-
tions for building this are not
going to be reasonably interest-


ed in doing so," Swift said.
Mayor Mike Cinque said
he'd prefer the city void Swift's,
agreement and take back the 40
building permit allocations
attached to it for use by individ-
uals. The permits are specifical-
ly designated for affordable
housing.
"Right now we're bulked
into one project and Ed can't
move forward without a com-.
mitment that he'll be able to sell
the majority of them," Cinque
said of the housing units.
A motion by Cinque to not
extend Swift's agreement when
it comes due in two months was
withdrawn in favor of the coun-
cil meeting to. discuss all pend-


ing development agreements in.
the city. That special meeting is
scheduled for April 21.
I The city doled out a wave of
development agreements in
2005 in the wake of approving
an ordinance that allowed the
redevelopment of single mobile
homes and hotel rooms as
1,500-square-foot suites with
three bedrooms and two bath-
rooms.
Very little progress has been
made on any of those agree-
ments and the result is a large
number of affordable housing
permit allocations being tied up.
Old Town intended to build
two-bedroom, 1.5-bath; two-
bedroom, two-bath; and three-


bedroom, two-bath homes. They
would range in square footage
from 940 to 1,275 and be deed-
ed affordable in perpetuity.
Prices were to range from
$209,000 to $292,000.
Swift told the council that
while he's committed to seeing
the project through he said
Old Town's spent nearly
$30,000 thus far he .under-
stands the city has no obligation
to extend the agreement.
"You have absolutely ... no
obligation to me or my company
and if you decided to go another
direction, as long as you went
toward workforce housing, I
would be delighted to see some-
thing else built," he said.


Truman vote is pulled


Many of you have received
notices that Citizens wind only
policy will be expiring and are
concerned about your replace-
ment policy. The majority of
affected policy holders will be
placed back to Citizens under
their new wind only policy. If
your home is over 25 years
old and your roof covering is
other than concrete or metal,
you will need to provide certi-
fication that the roof is in
good repair and has a remain-
ing useful life of 3 years or
more. For homes with con-
crete roofs or metal cover-
ings, you will need to provide
the same documentation if
your home was constructed
50 or more years ago. For
mobile homes, roofs over 25
years old require proof of
updates. In addition to this,
Citizens will require that your
building coverage amount is
tied to your homeowner's pol-
icy coverage amount or is rep-


resentative of a current state-
ment of value such as an
appraisal done within the last
12 months. In the event that
your coverage lapses for more
45 days there is now a 30 day
waiting period for coverage to
take effect.

With so many changes, it is of
heightened importance that
the agency you choose has a
comprehensive understanding
of the Citizens product and
keeps up to date on the
process. Regan Insurance
Agency has always been very
familiar with the wind only
product as evidenced by our
agency appointment number
*02". Our history with Citizens
dates back to 1972 and its
predecessor Florida
Windstorm Underwriting
Association which our agency
founder was instrumental in
the lobbying process to obtain
wind only coverage for


Monroe residents in the after-
math of a series of storms in
the 1960's which caused
companies to retreat from the
Keys.

If you are a Regan Insurance
Agency customer, rest
assured that we have taken
steps in advance to deal with
this process and stand ready
to replace your Citizens policy.
If you are not a current cus-
tomer please feel free to con-
tact us with any questions you
may have regarding your
insurance needs.

Keys Credit Federal Union cuts staff


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


In yet another sign of the
times, one of the biggest financial
companies in the Keys has cut its
staff.
Among those let go Monday
at Keys Federal Credit Union are
Charlie Bradford, who was a vice
president and who has 35 years in
the banking and finance industry.
He's a past chairman of the Key
'West Chamber of Commerce and
has been on the Utility Board of
Key West since-2006.
Keys Federal Chief Executive
Officer Doug Watson says the


personnel cuts were based on rec-
ommendations of outside effi-
ciency consultants who started-
looking at the credit union opera-
tions in August or September
2008.
"There a couple of things that
led up to this restructuring,"
Watson says, citing an examina-
tion of salaries, benefits and
recent computer automation
upgrades.
"It wasn't really a let-go,"
Watson said when asked about
personnel cuts. "We used attrition
and combining functions."


As of March 27, Keys Federal
had 13,480 members, Watson
said.
Keys Federal has about 60
staffers after the cuts, Watson.
says. He wouldn't say how many
people worked at the credit union
before the cuts, but it appears
staffing is down about 16 percent
from a couple of years ago.
"What we're trying to do is
respond to the needs of the mem-
bership and the market we find
ourselves in," board Chairman
Paul Mitchell said. "These are
things that are in the best interest
of the membership and the insti-
tution."


Plane loses landing gear


It lands safely
in Key West
with 7 aboard
Keynoter Staff

A small private turbo-prop
aircraft was forced to make an
emergency landing Friday
afternoon at Key West
International Airport.
There were seven passen-
gers aboard, five adults and
two children. No one was hurt.
Montoe County Airports
Director Peter Horton says the
pilot, Scott Ferguson of
Tallahassee, realized he could-
.n't get the landing gear
engaged,. so he radioed the
tower and emergency response
teams braced for the worst.
"He performed probably
the best 'belly landing I've
seen in 20 years," Horton
says. "It was pretty much text-
book."
After everyone realized
everyone was safe and there
was no danger of fire or an
explosion, the plane was

dragged off the runway. The
emergency landing caused the
runway to be closed from 1:27
p.m. until 1:58 p.m.
A Delta flight from Atlanta
to Key West was diverted to
Sarasota while the plane, a
Piper Cheyenne registered to a
company called Ivory Air
LLC, was removed from the
runway.


"We're probably going to hold
at this size for at least the next
three months. We're still looking,
at maintaining efficiency while
offering member service,"
Watson said.
Credit unions differ from
banks in that credit unions are not
for profit and operate on behalf of
member/owners; banks operate
for profit and generate money for
stockholders.
Pending litigation
Also at the credit union, for-


mer Chief Executive Officer John
Dolan-Heitlinger, who was fired
in November 2007, continues
pursuing severance pay.
After he was fired no rea-
son was ever made public -
Dolan-Heitlinger turned around
and sued, alleging his contract
was violated because he wasn't
given his severance package.
That lawsuit is now set for an
April 13 case management hear-
ing before Judge Reagan Ptomey
at the Plantation Key courthouse.

Gastesi: 'Let us know how you really feel'


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


One-third of the way through
a 24-meeting schedule aimed at
shaping the future of Monroe
County government, Admin-
istrator Roman Gastesi said he's
found Keys residents open and
accommodating.
Gastesi devised what he calls


his strategic planning initiative to
identify citizens' concerns and
how to address them over the
next five years.
"This is an opportunity for
folks to help shape their govern-
ment. It'll be a template for mov-
ing forward and our guide on how
to allocate resources," he said.


Sugarloaf Food Co. owner
Annie Rodamer attended a Lower
Keys Chamber of Commerce
meeting on Tuesday where
Gastesi spoke. She was at the
center of a January code sweep in
the Lower Keys aimed at elimi-
nating signs and banners- from
state rights of way. Business
owners felt taking the signs down
would cost them a large number
of customers.
Rodamer said Gastesi was sym-'
pathetic to her concerns, but that
"you believe it when you see it."
"We asked him about the sign
issue and why Monroe County is
so anti-business. He said they
want that to change," Rodamer
said. "He's got good ideas and
you hope that it can work. At least
he's taking input from people; at
least he's trying."
Gastesi begins each communi-
ty meeting 'by encouraging
"courageous communication,"
and says that's exactly what.he's
gotten.
"Have the courage to commu-
nicate openly. Let us have it and
let us know how you really fill,"
Gastesi said. "We've been able,
in all eight, to get folks to open up
and give us good feedback."


Gastesi said 250 surveys -
copies of which are available on
the county's Web site have
been turned in. There are business
and residential versions of the
survey, each gauging the use of,
efficiency and satisfaction with
the county's various services.
Six of the eight meetings thus
far have been hosted by Keys
chambers of commerce, so it's
not surprising that Building and
Code Department issues have
been big topics thus far.
"There is a lot of questions
about [the] Building Department
and code enforcement,, and also
beautification projects as far as
U.S. 1 and working better with"
the state Department of
Transportation, Gastesi said.
-"Folks appreciate that we've
shrunk the government in the last
year, but some feel there is more
to do."
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce President Jackie
Harder said 85 chamber members


turned out for a luncheon with
Gastesi. She said Gastesi kept his
comments brief and fielded ques-
tions about the county's permit
process and businesses' concerns
about sign.-
"His point was, 'We want to
hear from you.' I think that was, a
good move on his part to reach
out to people in the community to
ask where the county should be
going," Harder said.

Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett says Mount
Marathon, as it's not so affection-
ately known, will be gone within
90 days.
That's apparently not a moment
too soon for some neighbors of the
giant fenced-in pile of dirt at mile
marker 49 bayside. It was created
by trenching dirt to install sewer
pipes in that part of the city.
Longtime resident Karen
Farley-Wilkinson operates a real
estate office adjacent to the fill
and told the City Council- on
Tuesday that it's become a nui-
sance. She brought an adding
machine and a plant, each covered
in dust, to Tuesday's City Council
meeting and showed them to each
council member on the dais.
Farley-Wilkinson said air con-
ditioning in her building can't be
turned on because she chokes
from the. dust that gets sucked in
from the dirt pile.
"We all wanted to be good
sports here," she said. "It's been
there almost a year and we've
become a little unhappy."
.Burnett said an agreement is


in place with sewer contractor
Globetec Construction 'to haul
non-usable fill from the site with-
in 30 days and all usable fill with-
in 90 days. Usable fill must be
compactable so it can be built on.
Globetec is nearing comple-
tion on the Area 4 (Sombrero
Beach Road/U.S. 1 corridor
between 39th and 60th streets)
part of the, city's sewer system.
Burnett said the Area 3 (between
llth and 39th streets) contractor
will likely choose a different
location for its fill.
"Could that same area be used
for [Area] 3? Yes, it probably
could, but there's so much pres-
sure that I don't think it would be.
I would strongly urge staff not to
issue any more permits for dirt at
that site."
The city will. attempt to sell
what usable dirt is not used to
refill sewer trenches. Burnett is
authorized to sell the fill at $8 per
cubic yard.
Globetec officials say the
remaining fill is being taken ,a
mile marker 56 lot owned by a
D'Asign Source customer.

Dog park boosters bite back


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Field of Dreams almost
became a nightmare Tuesday for
a group of Marathon dog owners,
who nearly saw their hopes for a
dog park at 75th street scrapped.
In January, the City Council
gave the pet owners the right to
build a dog park on roughly one
acre of unused land at the front
part of the Children's Rotary
Park, known as the Field of
Dreams, at 75th Street and U.S. 1.
Tuesday, the council was
merely expected to hear an
update related to the loose coali-
tion of dog owners foregoing
501(c)3 nonprofit status in favor
of accepting tax-deductible dona-
tions through the city.
It all seemed routine until sev-
eral residents stepped to the podi-
um to voice displeasure with the,
planned location. Among the
complaints were that dogs pose a
danger to small children, spread


fleas and ticks, and that the park
was intended for use by toddlers.
Dog park group members also
spoke, refuting many of the
claims. One called a potential
flea or tick problem because of
the dogs "ridiculous" and another
said of the 2.5-acre site: "I don't
know if we need 2.5 acres for
toddlers to toddle around in."
The back-and-forth prompted
council discussion, during which
Councilman Pete Worthington
began second-guessing the Field
of Dreams site.
Worthington noted that the
issue has been around for a year,
and for most of that time, the dog
park was slated to be built on
city-owned property behind City
Hall, between 98th and 99th
streets. He also suggested the
Marathon Rotary Club, which
oversaw construction of the Field
of Dreams, wasn't notified of the
new use there.

suggested the change of location
as a cost-saving measure. It elim-
inates an estimated $7,000 water
hookup fee.
But Worthington said, "I have
to agree with some of the speak-
ers tonight that...we did not con-
fer with that organization to give
them a heads up."
The rest of the council dis-
agreed, saying the dog park has
been publicly vetted on numer-
ous occasions and written about
extensively by local media.
"I have also spoken -to one or
two people who are against the
location of the dog park. The -gen-
eral conversation was, 'If we
knew about it, we could have
been there.' My response was that
this has been in every newspa-
per," Councilman Dick Ramsay
said.
Councilwoman Ginger Snead
said she was opposed-at first to
the dog park, but the group has
been open to change and accom-
modated the council at every turn.
"I've discussed this with other
Rotarians; they knew it was
going to be here, too," Snead
said. "Since I've been sitting up
here, it was going to be at the
Rotary Park."
Snead eventually called for a
vote to move forward and

FWC sends four south


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Four newly minted Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission enforcement offi-
cers report to work Monday in
Marathon.
Once again, no other county in
the state will receive more new
FWC officers than the Keys.
"It's a longstanding situation
here," said FWC Officer Bobby
Dube, information and recruiting
officer for Monroe County.
"Due to the high cost of living
here, we historically have pretty
significant turnover," Dube said.
"That means we always get a
handful of new officers after
academy graduation."
The turnover occurs despite a
special Keys living-cost stipend
of $10,000 annually - the
FWC'"-highest in Florida. Base
pay for all -new FWC officers is
$31,879.
Trying to recruit applicants
who live in the Keys or want to
work here is a priority, Dube said,
but meeting the agency's stan-
dards is not easy.


The Pat Thomas Law
Enforcement Academy, a multi-
agency training center in
Tallahassee, graduated 26 new
officers with for FWC in late
March after a six-month training
program.
They include future Monroe
County officers Raquel Daniels,
Tiffany Davis, Michael Milillio
and Joshua Greenier.
At the graduation ceremony,
agency officials noted that
Daniels is the first black woman
to become a certified FWC law-
enforcement officer.
The new officers will report to
the agency office in Marathon to
complete paperwork and be
assigned equipment. Then they
will spend another 14 weeks
working with local patrol officers
for additional field training, Dube
said.
The academy training included
firearms and defensive tactics, boat
and all-terrain vehicle operation,,
identifying impaired drivers or
boaters and "alligator handling."
Working in the Keys requires

edge, Dube said.
"I grew up around boats but it
still took me a while to learn to
bring a 30-foot patrol boat along-
side another vessel with a strong
current running," he said.
"The field-training officers
work to make sure the new folks
have the job skills to necessary to
become a well-rounded FWC
officer."
Each new officer will work
with at least three different offi-
cers before going on solo patrol,
Dube said.
The FWC currently has 44
sworn law-enforcement officers
in Monroe County, said Capt.
David Pate from agency head-
quarters in Tallahassee. That
includes supervisors and crew of
long-range patrol boats.
"With the addition of the three
new officers, there will still be 12
vacant positions in Monroe
County," Pate said in anr e-mail.
The FWC has a statewide total
of 725 sworn law enforcement
officers. -
Two local residents were in
Tallahassee this week for three
days of interviews in the acade-
my-application process.

In October of last year, Phil
Hogue, president and CEO of
Key West Bank, told the Keynoter
that the bank had $5 million to $6
million in bad loans. This week,
he told. the Keynoter that the

loans, as the reason for the "zero"

Centennial Bank replaces Padgett


Long-time
Middle Keys
banker is out
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Centennial Bank released a
statement this week, announcing
that Teresa Condas has been
unanimously selected by the
bank's local board of directors to
take over as president.
Condas was previously the
executive vice president and
chief operating officer of
Centennial Bank Florida (the
former Marine. Bank). She was
first hired as a consultant by
Marine Bank in 2000, and went
on to serve in various manage-
ment positions. She replaces
Hunter Padgett, the long-time
president of the bank.
"Teresa's experience and tenure


b contribute sig-
nificantly to the
S strength of
Centennial
Bank," Richard
Buckheim,
chairman of the
local board of
directors, said
CONDAS in a written
statement. "Her
35 years of experience in banking
and finance, her stellar academic
achievements and strong demon-
strated leadership abilities make
Teresa the logical choice for this
position. I watched Teresa move
from consultant to senior execu-
tive, and believe she has the char-
acter, drive and management skills
to take Centennial Bank to the next
level in Florida."
The sudden change in leader-
ship comes just three months
after the bank's parent company,
the Arkansas-based Home
BancShares, announced the com-


pany's first-ever loss, pointing to
commercial loans in the Keys
that had gone bad as the reason
for 90 percent of the $9.4 million
loss.
Marine Bank merged with
Home BancShares in 2005, and
all of the banks under Home
BancShares changed their name
to Centennial Bank late last year.
At the time of the merger,
Padgett told the Keynoter that
Marine Bank would maintain its
independence, and that person-
nel, branches and even the bank's
logo would remain the same.
Now, four years later, the
name, logo and the person in
charge have all changed, though
Centennial Bank Florida still
has its own board of directors.
Home BancShares CEO John
Allison, a part-time resident of
the Keys, is one of those direc-
tors.
-Padgett told. the Keynoter in
January that Centennial Bank -


Florida has about $16 million in
bad loans; and that the bank, if it
hadn't merged with Home

comes just
three months
after the
bank's parent
company
announced the
company's
first-ever loss.

BancShares, may not have been
able to survive on its own while
dealing with this.


Home BancShares' has sent
two people to the Keys in recent
months to assist with loan work-
outs where borrowers in
default are squeezed to try to
recover the bank's money.
"They're working hard down
there," said Brian Davis, head of
financial reporting for Home
BancShares, when asked whether
the bank was making progress in
dealing with the bad loans.
When asked whether Padgett
had been fired, Davis declined to
comment, and said that the
appointment of Condas to head
the bank was not an indication of
a change of direction at the bank.
Richard Buckheim, chairman
of the local board of directors, did
not immediately return calls for
comment. A spokesperson for
Centennial Bank Florida could
not be' reached by press time. A
woman -answering phones at,the
bank on Thursday said that Padgett
was no longer employed there.

Last weekend for musical


L'Attitudes Staff


The Marathon Community
Theatre heads into the final
weekend of "Company" -- its
annual musical with a per-
formance on Friday, April 3 and
a closing night performance on
Saturday, April 4.
"Company" was written by
Stephen Sondheim, who collab-
orated with George Furth on the
book and with Harold Prince on
the direction. It opened at the
Alvin Theatre on Broadway on
April 26, 1970 as what was later
recognized as the first "concept"
musical that somehow held
the attention of the audience'
without having a clearly-defined
storyline.
"Company" won the New
York Drama Critics' Award and
six Tony Awards, including for
Best Musical, Best Music, Best
Lyrics and Best Book.
The story focuses on Robert,
a handsome 35-year-old New -
York bachelor played by Justin
Ahearn. Robert's friends are all
married couples who would like
to see him give up his single life
and get married. Yet Robert has
trouble connecting with one
woman in any meaningful way.
The Marathon Community
Theatre's cast includes Mary
Hansley, Craig Kerns, Lisa
Kendrick, Cheri Edwards, Annie
Miners, Gail Burnett, Sylvia
Rickett, Michael Edwards, Eric
Rolfe, Becky Dailey, Lauren
Spinelli, Kiel Kear, Suzanne
Terpos and Cheryl Wilcox.
Among the musical numbers
- are: "The Little Things You Do
Together," "Sorry-Grateful,"
"Another Hundred People," and
"Side by Side by Side,."
Rita Irwin, a native New
Yorker, directs.
Tickets are on sale now for
$24 and can be purchased by
calling 743-0994 or from the
box office at 5101 Overseas
Highway in Marathon.
The Marathon Community
Theatre is a not-for-profit organ-
ization dedicated to contributing
to and enhancing the cultural
life of the Middle Keys.
Membership is open to anyone
who wants to support the activi-
ties of MCT through volunteer
involvement or by contributions.
Tax-deductible contributions
may be made to Marathon

Key West: My
favorite whore

She is the second oldest city
working the world's oldest pro-
fession
At first glance I not only
loved her, I had an obsession
I first saw this street walker
as I walked her streets
She was hot, she was cold
and bitter but sweet
Many ships have entered her
port for a fee
Being born here I thought
she'd do me for free
But no it's the money now
that's her objective
She'll do anyone for money,
and she's not selective
The-attraction, to her was her
ability to let each play their

role
I thought my heart was
guarded but that's what she
stole
Sophisticated, raunchy,
cheesy and classy
She had such great manners
and yet so sassy -
What a chameleon she is
What a Conch I have
become
She can be anything to any-
body
But with her we are one
Your fantasies are her
desires and she makes them
come true
But, her fantasy is a fest
that's all about you
The money I paid her I
knew would go to her pimps
They run her business, she's
the attraction, they are the
chimps
I had her as a young man
but left her for many more
Some I called my wife but I
wanted back my whore
I returned years later and
introduced her to my sons
She looked at them and said
'Now these are the ones'
Though I thought she was a


little old for them they found
her attractive too
It was her beauty, her smell
and ability to make their fan-
tasies come true
She does turn more tricks
for more people than any
whore that I've seen
You would think she would
wear red but she is so beautiful
in green
Many famous people have
had her, Truman, Clinton,
Hemingway and Frost
They all wanted to have her
no matter the cost
I am not one of the famous
until my poem is read
A tale of a women I want in
my bed
She made me write this
poem and I think I know why
She could not tell her life
story it might make her cry
She is one human family on
each and every of her days
Even her one way streets go
both ways
I am lucky to be able to
sleep with Ms. Key West
But trust me I have paid the
price to be with the best

The river of dry

And the coming
suspension of
deep thinking...
By MARGARET MENGE
L'Attitudes Editor
When I first saw the
Everglades, I had about the
same thought Mark Twain had
when he first saw a desert on .
his way out west in a stage-
coach with his brother, who'd
been appointed Secretary of the
Nevada Territory: "The poetry
was all in the anticipation -there
is none in the reality."
The Everglades I thought
was worse than any desert. It
was just a gigantic swamp, with
-dry, yellowed grass sticking out

wom!m[1 of it and
dreary trees
stuck in it,
as if a flood
had come
and trapped
them there in
misery for all
time.
Every-
MENGE thing in the
Everglades
seemed to me
to be in one of the advanced
stages of death
A desert you could at least
step on, and walk across. The
Everglades had never made up
its mind whether it wanted to be
land or water. It was just muck.
And we know what kinds of ,
things live in muck. The most
vile sorts of animals alligators
and crocs, Asian swamp eels
and Burmese pythons all the
things that love dark muck.
Someone recently told me a
story of being in a very small
boat with his father in the
Everglades when he was a boy
and coming upon a nest of
water moccasins. There were
piles of them, swimming on top
of the fetid water, snarling and
twisting about, with their heads
curving up out of the water. His
father had to hit at them with
paddles to keep them from leap-
ing into the boat.
The Everglades terrify me.
And fascinate me. That there's a
place there called Shark Valley
- that has no sharks and thou-
sands of mangrove islands sur-
rounded by shallow waters
thick with sharks. That giant
cats live there, and paw about in
the muck, eating...what do they
eat? Water moccasins??
The photographer Clyde
Butcher is in Key West this
weekend, at the Eco-Discovery
Center, proving that a place as
barren and terrible as the
Everglades can present itself as
a fine subject to a photographer
with a sharp eye and a stripped
soul. Cypress trees appear in
Butcher's photographs as deli-
cately-clipped giant bonsais,
and clouds rumble over a wide
meadow above the Tamiami
Trail. It all still looks ragtag,
these Everglades. But in
Butcher's photographs, it all
looks a little more like one of

something splendorous.

God's intended landscapes.
THE HEAT IS UPON US
AGAIN, and if your air condi-
tioner wasn't working this
week, you might have been
inclined to stay out on the
porch until the sun went down,
and for awhile after.
I took the book "Civilization
and Climate" off the bookshelf
to remind myself of the ways in
which my ability to-think is
going to be compromised by


Butcher turns the dreary landscape of the Everglades into


the heat in the months to come.
"Civilization and Climate" was
written by Ellsworth
Huntington, a professor of
geography at Yale University in
the early 1900s. It was, first
published in 1915 by Yale
University Press and can still
be found in major collections. I
first found it ten years ago at
the main library in Miami,
where the librarian, who I
believe was Indian, retrieved it


for me, and said what a won-
derfully interesting book it was.
It is partly because of
Ellsworth Huntington that I
never believed in man-made
global warming. Huntington
wrote all about "pulsations" in
climate change. Egypt was
once much more temperate.
And it was not a desert. It was
green! Temperatures go up,
temperatures go down. There's
no straight up, or straight down.


There are pulsations.
Huntington traveled the
world, gathering up data with
which he could measure the
effects of temperature on civi-
lization \
He studied the records of
500 factory workers in
Connecticut; nearly 9,000 fac-
tory workers in Pittsburgh;
between 3,000 and 4,000 facto-
ry workers in southern.cities
from Virginia to Florida
(including cigar makers in Ybor
City, in Tampa, who'd moved
up from Key West) and more -
than 1700 students at the U.S.
Naval Academy at Annapolis
and the U.S. Military Academy
at West Point in New York.
Mental activity is highest, he
concluded, when the average
outside temperature is 38
degrees Fahrenheit. Physical
activity, he found, was highest
when the average outside tem-
perature ranged from 60 to 65
degrees, where the noon tem-
perature rose to 70, degrees or
even higher, while the night
temperature fell to a low of
about 55 degrees.
"Another highly important
climatic condition seemed to be


the change in temperature from
one day to the next,"
Huntington wrote. "People did
not work well when the tem-
perature remained constant.
Great changes were also unfa-
vorable. The ideal condition, or
optimum,. seemed to be mild
summers with the temperature
rarely above 75 degrees F., and
a constant succession of mild
storms and moderate changes
of weather from day to day."
We are not living in a high-
mental-activity climate. And
we should all be aware that we
are moving into that time of
year when it is difficult to
make one thought line up with
the one before it, and relate,
even peripherally, to the one
that comes after it. Be aware:
your mental activity may come
to a dead halt altogether at vari-
ous points over, the coming
months! Other times, you may
notice pulsations periods of
rapid mental activity followed
by some slow moments. Get
ready..

Hurricane head coach Mark
Hall after Coral Shores dis-
patched Palmetto, 15-3, in the
semi.
After a close first half
Wednesday, Coral Shores (9-3
overall) decided to end the
suspense.
The Canes went on an 8-0
run over Palmetto's Panthers
in the second half.
A Coral Shores goal just
before intermission boosted
the Canes to a 7-3 edge at the
break.
"We-started slow and slop-
py," Hall said. "Our last regu-
lar-season game was cancelled
so we really hadn't played in a
while. It took us time to get
back into it."
He smiled, "We got rolling

On defense, junior goalie

Dolphins romp


over Spartans


Tennis coach
had expected
tougher match
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School
girls tennis coach Chris Bull
said the team traveled to
Miami Country Day
Thursday prepared to do bat-
tle.
What the team (10-2)
came away with was a lop-
sided 6-1 victory over a team
that won its district last year
and finished second to peren-
nial state power Ransom
Everglades at regionals.
"If ended .up being not as
close as we imagined," Bull
said.
No. 1 Marisa Brossard (8-
3), No. 3 Kelsey Wonderlin
(8-3), No. 4 Michelle
Bellevue (8-3) and No. 5
Michaelle-Rose Bellevue (8-
1) all won their singles
matches. No. 2 Angela
Farello 'fell 5-8 in a close
match.
The Spartans forfeited No.
1 doubles with the match
already decided, and the
Bellevue sisters teamed up
for an 8-1 No. 2 doubles win.
The match presented an
interesting twist, Bull said, as
the Spartans had two clay
courts along with several
hard courts to play on. Two of
those hard courts were ocean-
side and players were forced
to deal with swirling winds.

"The girls didn't know
what court they were going to
get and all, three of those
areas presented different
challenges," Bull said. "You
can't really prepare a few
minutes before you come on.
We still came through with a
strong showing and it'll be a
good tune up for Coral
.Shores.". '
The Dolphins were sched-
uled to play Coral Shores
Friday in Marathon, but
results were not available at
press time.

Boys fall
The Marathon boys team
fell 0-7 Thursday, though No. .
1 John Danaher. and No. 2
Kerry Wonderlin played well
in both singles and doubles.
,Danaher fell 4-8. and
Wonderlin lost 5-8, while'
they'combined for a close 8-7
(8-6) loss in No. 1 doubles.
No. 3 Jonnie Lancaster (2-
8), No. 4 Ricardo Dominguez
(3-8) and No.. 5 Thomas
Bowersox (0-8) lost their sin-
gles matches, while
Lancaster and Dominguez
fell 1-6 in No. 2 doubles.
The boysare now 3-7.

home Doyle.
Doyle had a big day for the
Dolphins, going 2-for-3 with
three RBI. Murphy said the
sophomore is playing well in her
first year with the varsity team.
"She's playing second base
for us and she's doing 4 great job
defensively. It was nice to see her
put together some hits," she said.
The Falcons pulled within 6-3
in the top of the fifth, but the
Dolphins responded with two
runs of their own to put the game
out of reach.
Struyf and McKenna singled
to start the inning. Struyf moved
up on a passed ball and scored on
a sacrifice fly by Gardner. Doyle
then singled McKenna home to
make it 8-3.
Vanessa Sardina threw the
first four innings for the
'Dolphins, allowing five hits and
striking out two. Gardner fin-
ished the final three innings,
allowing five hits and striking
out one batter.
The. Dolphins are off until
April 14, when they host Key
West High School at 6 p.m.

Lady Canes move to 12-2


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Coral Shores' tennis
Hurricanes return from this
week's Spring Break to head into
the District 16-2A Tournament.
The 10-team tournament will
be played April 15 at Miami's
Tropical Park.
"We're playing pretty solid
right now," said coach Blake Fry.
"We have a good shot, if the draw
comes out well, to move on after
districts."


The Hurricane girls improved
to 12-2 against district foes
Tuesday, sweeping the singles
matches with a young lineup
against Monsignor Pace. Michela
Walters played the top spot and
recorded an 8-1 victory.
I Also winning were No. 2
Kelsey Thiele, 8-3; No. 3 Katie
Fry, 8-2; No. 4 Savannah Koval,
8-1; and No. 5 Daniella Delucia,
8-1.
, Rains cancelled the doubles
matches, but the team victory was
already decided.
The Coral Shores boys had to


log the match as an incomplete
since rains came before the
deciding doubles matches could
be played. The Canes were down,
3-2, after singles.
Zack Stroup, a junior playing
No. 1, evened the score against
Pace's top player with an 8-2 win.
Fry called it Stroup's "best match
of the year."
"Zack had a great day, finally
closing when he had a good
lead," Fry said.
At No. 4, Stephen Saumell
won a tiebreaker for the Canes'
other match win.

and will be ensured of having the
first seed in the district tourna-
ment, which begins April 20. If
Pace wins, it is likely the two
teams will have to play a decid-
ing game in Opa-locka.
"We saw their pitcher


Tuesday and she throws pretty
hard," Wells said. "So we're juic-
ing up the pitching machine at
practice."
Freshman Savannah
Hawthorne will start today's
game against Westland, and
freshman Rachel Quad will start
against Pace, Wells said. The
Conchs have outscored district


opponents, 129-17.
Wells said his daughter,
Lauren, sidelined with a ham-
string injury, will undergo a
three-week rehabilitation pro-
gram. She was the team's top
pitcher and one of its best hitters
before being injured two weeks
ago in a tournament.
