The idea to contract out some
duties has already been broached
%\ith county Mayor George
Neugent and others. Key decision
makers from both government


bodies will meet Thursday in Key
West to explore the idea.
The School District is reeling
in the wake of credit card fraud
allegations and other indiscre-

district's former adult education


coordinator and the wife of
Superintendent Randy Acevedo.
On Friday, the board agreed to
spend $44,000 on a forensic audi-
tor to investigate district mis-
spending and other possibly ille-
gal actions. It also agreed in con-
cept to hire an internal auditor to
be in charge of the books.

Major changes are coming to

re peated complaints about the
office's service.


Division Director Andrew
Trivette announced the changes
Tuesday, after County
Administrator Roman Gastesi
heard the complaints during the
first leg of his 24-meeting
Strategic Planning Initiative.
Just eight meetings into his
Keyswide plan to help shape the
future of Monroe County govern-
ment, Gastesi said residents are
concerned with the state of the


Growth Management Division.
"It was clear the county folks
know their business; they were
competent in their jobs, but ...
things like attitudes need to be
improved," Gastesi said, refer-
ring to resident feedback at meet-
ings and in surveys available on
the county Web site. "Customer

Forecast: 6 hurricanes


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The latest outlook for the 2009
hurricane season looks very aver-
age, says Colorado State
University's tropical forecast
team.
Cooling sea temperatures over
the last few months slightly lower
the chances of hurricane forma-
tion, according to a report
released Tuesday by Dr. William
Gray's team at the National
Hurricane Conference in Texas.
An update of a December
forecast lowers the predicted
number of hurricanes by one to
six, and cuts the number of
expected major hurricanes from
three to two. Major hurricanes are
Category 3 or above, with winds
speeds of at least 111 mph.
"We are calling for an average
hurricane season this year -
about as active as the average of
the 1950-2000 seasons," said Phil
Klotzbach, who has taken over as
the lead forecaster with the CSU


team.
"It doesn't matter if the fore-
cast says one, five or 17 hurri-
canes," Monroe County
Emergency Management
Director Irene Toner said
Tuesday. "In Monroe County, we
have to be ready for the first
one."
The six-month hurricane sea-
son starts June 1. Long-term
averages are 5.9 hurricanes and
2.3 major hurricanes per year.
The April forecast still calls
for 12 named tropical storms,
above the historical average of
9.6 named storms dating back to
1950.
Gray said in a statement
Tuesday, "We expect current
weak La Nina conditions to tran-
sition to neutral and perhaps
weak El Nino conditions by this
year's hurricane season.
"If El Nino conditions develop
for this year's hurricane season, it
would tend to increase levels of
vertical wind shear and decrease


levels of Atlantic hurricane activ-
ity."
Weather factors in early 2009
are similar to conditions that
occurred in five years that .had
average hurricane activity.
The CSU forecast team listed
probabilities a major hurricane
making landfall on U.S. soil:
A 54 percent chance that at_
least one major hurricane will
make landfall on the U.S. coast-
line in 2009 (long-term average
probability is 52 percent).
+ A 32 percent chance that a
major hurricane will make land-
fall on the U.S. East Coast, includ-
ing the Florida Peninsula (the
long-term average is 31 percent).
"The hurricane team's fore-
casts are based on the premise
that global oceanic and atmos-
pheric conditions such as El
Nino, sea surface temperatures
and sea level pressures- that pre-
ceded active or inactive hurricane
seasons in the past provide mean-
ingful information about similar
trends in future seasons," accord-
ing to a CSU report.


Kolhage surprised by proposal


SCHOOLS / From 1

"Finance I think we've got to
figure out .internally, but the
Purchasing Department, if we
could move those services over to
the county and have [County
Clerk Danny Kolhage] provide
oversight, that's a win-win for the
citizens of the county,"
Pribramsky said.
One of the duties of Kolhage's
office is to provide oversight of
county operations and perform
internal audits when necessary.
Neugent said creating an
economy of scale with the School
District has merit.
"Any time you can combine
forces and save taxpayers money,
it's a good idea," the mayor said.
"I think it will take some pressure
off the School Board saying the
county will provide strong over-
sight."
But Randy Acevedo was none
too pleased with the School
Board's action on Friday and
potential interference in School
District personnel issues. The
superintendent even threatened to
hire his own attorney at the
board's ,expense, to, stop ,further.
K.action on.that front..


Pribramsky gives little cre-
dence to Acevedo's threat.
"He's under the misconcep-
tion he can hire a lawyer and bill
it to the School Board. He can
only do that if we approve it,"
'Pribramsky said. "I'll go on
record right now: No way do I
agree to that and I'm not going to
be blackmailed by him."
Pribramsky says he
approached Neugent about join-
ing forces before news of
Monique Acevedo's alleged
fraud broke last month. The ini-
tial impetus was a state mandate
to trim some $12 million off the
district's $88 million budget.
Pribramsky said the School
District, like the county, has per-
sonnel dealing with insurance,
payroll and purchasing. His plan
is to allow the county to deal with
those services and keep more dol-
lars in the classroom.
"To me, there's duplication in
the services that are provided
,ultimately to the citizens of our
county. We're looking at cuts to
our staff and getting the best
return for our tax dollars,"
Pribramsky said. "There's going
to be resistance from staff that
could lose their job, but in our sit-
uation, we have. a $12 million cut


we have to absorb.
"We are not lean and mean at
the School District -and we need
to get there before I'm willing to
take $1 away from a classroom,"
he said, noting that 80 percent of
the district budget is dedicated to
salaries and benefits.
Neugent and Pribramsky,
along with Kolhage, County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton,
School Board attorney Richard
Collins and other officials, are
scheduled to meet Thursday at 1
p.m. at the Gato Building in Key
West.
The plan is very preliminary,
so much so that Kolhage was
unaware of any discussions on
the potential oversight he might
provide.
"That's not what was con-
veyed to me," he said, referring
to an e-mail from Neugent's
office requesting he attend the
. meeting. The e-mail says the pur-
pose of the meeting is to discuss
possibilities of joining health
insurance and purchasing efforts.
School Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said cutting overhead
outside the classroom "seems
like a no-brainer" and he wel-
.comes discussion when. the board
meets again on April 14- ...

Change coming to 'both process and culture'


COUNTY / From I

important to the community, and
why wait when we can address it
now?" he continued.
Trivette told the Keynoter the
amount of negative feedback was
unexpected.
"When you have a regulatory
function, it's easy to have nega-
tive comments, but what's sur-
prising is the volume and intensi-
ty," he said. "On the whole, our
staff does an excellent job, but
that's. never going to mean there
isn't room for improvement."
Trivette said there are several
factors at work. Growth
Management has only seven
planners on staff, down from as
many as 13 in his two years on
the job, and uses inefficient
"' '90s-era software." Plans are in
the works for a software update
allowing all aspects of a permit to


be reviewed at once.
"Staffing is absolutely going to
effect how quickly we can get the
work done. We've got a very
skeleton staff in every single one
of my departments," Trivette said.
Trivette said the Building
Department, in which his divi-
sion .is based, handles more than
5,000 permits a year, in 112 sepa-
rate categories, including fenc-
ing, pavers, residential construc-
tion, remodels, vacation rentals
and alcoholic beverage permits.
In a memo to his staff and all
county commissioners, Trivette
said Growth Management is now
"under a. customer service watch."
"Following the conclusion of
eight [strategic planning] meet-
ings the topic has been, domi-
nantly, the poor customer service
and management of the Growth
Management "Division," he
wrote. "We have been here before
and we have addressed it only to


slide backward as the work load
increases and we have less time
to focus on improvement of our
process and our service."
Trivette said the division must
work "with our customers, not
against them."
"It is human nature to be
defensive about our performance
and our conduct, but I encourage
all of you to simply consider your
actions carefully," he wrote. "The
customer service watch will
entail some changes to both
process and culture."
Among the changes Trivette
said will take effect May 1: A sat-
isfaction survey available at the
front counter of each office, a sur-
vey included in issuance materi-
als for each building permit and a


survey included in every notice
of violation.
In addition, average building
permit review time will be moni-
tored by the building official and
reported each month to Trivette
and Gastesi.
Trivette also said he'll request
to fill one vacant position in the
Key Largo Building Department
office and to combine two part-
time positions in favor of a full-
time person in Marathon.
"These process monitors will
be charged with evaluating the
efficiency of permit review and
expediting the process between
review stops," Trivette wrote.
Every complaint will be
reported weekly at department
head meetings.


Group bares all


NATURISTS / From 1

In addition to working in nudist
advocacy in the Northeast,
Chittenden says, "I started the
entire free beach movement in
South Florida." And lending a bit
of authenticity as if making a
position statement in the buff is
not enough he added, "I've.
been arrested four times for nudi-
ty."
Florida Statute 800.03 says it's
a first-degree misdemeanor for
anyone to expose or exhibit their
sexual organs in a public place.
"However, the mere act of
being nude in public is not a vio-
lation.... In order for there to be a
... violation, the Florida Supreme
Court requires the nudity to be a
lewd or lascivious exhibition."
Chittenden says he has dis-
tributed packets containing such
information to the Key West City
Commission and Monroe County
Commission.
"I don't think it would fly,"
City Commissioner Bill Verge
says. "Key West is still a residen-
tial community." Plus, "I don't
think that would particularly
draw more tourists than we have
right now. I'm not a conserva-
tive, but again, I look at what
public purpose it serves."
So, why now?
Chittenden says, "Now is the
Time with the economy the way it


is. You give us a beach and you'll
see a lot more tourist dollars
here."
The two prime candidates for
a clothing-optional beach would
appear to be a portion of Higgs
Beach, which is owned by the
county, separated by the main
beach by the West Martello
Tower; and Rest Beach near the
White Street Pier.

stern on Canal 37 in Lake
Hatchineha in Polk County,
marine officers say.
According to Florida Fish

Commission officials, Hunter
was operating an 18-foot speed-
boat and traveling in excess of-
'80 mph despite FWC patrols in
the area. Hunter lost control of
his boat and was thrown into the
water when the boat capsized.
Recovery operations contin-
ued throughout the weekend.
Hunter's body was located late
Sunday evening. The -Polk


County Sheriff's Office dive
team and the Osceola County
Sheriff's Office water patrol
helped in the recovery opera-
tion.
The Lakeland Ledger says
witnesses says Hunter tried
doing a wheeliee" in the boat
after dropping his girlfriend off
ashore, so she saw the crash.

Two jailed for
illegal sewer work

Two men were jailed Friday,
charged with performing sewer
work on Big Coppitt Key without
a contracting license or an occu-
pational license.
Deputy Matt Dowling with the
Sheriff's Office was contacted by
Monroe County Code Enforce-
ment because they had information
about an unlicensed plumbing con-
tractor installing lateral pipes from
the street to a house.
Ignacio Duran, 49, of
Homestead and Howard Lorimo-r,
46, of Big Coppitt Key were
booked into jail for fraud -
falsely identifying themselves as
contractors and with a munic-
ipal ordinance violation per-
forming the work without a coun-
ty occupational license.
Investigation revealed they
would have homeowners pull a
permit; they would then dig the
ditch for the lateral and lay the


pipe, but would not hook it up.
They charged $500 for the illegal
work.

Handicapped man
pulled from fire
A handicapped man was
pulled from his burning trailer in
Marathon Saturday morning.
The -Sheriff's Office and
Marathon Fire Rescue say the call
came in at 8:05 a.m. that a trailer
was on fire in Trailerama on 15th
Street. Before firefighters arrived,
a deputy arrived and pulled the
resident out but "unfortunately,
the victim and the deputy had
minor smoke inhalation and were
transported to the hospital," fire-'
fighter Eric Dunford says.
It took firefighters just eight
minutes to knock down the blaze,
"which for a trailer is very
quick," Dunford says.
Fire Marshal Adam Geaneas
says it looks like a power strip
near the television set overheated.

Keys Opinion


Martinez might be

seeing the light

Sometimes distance creates perspective. Case in point:
Sen. Mel Martinez's fly-by visit to Key West this week.
Martinez is the first Cuban-born office holder to serve in
the U.S. Senate. Sitting in Key West 90.miles from his
birthplace the discussion naturally turned to Cuba.
Martinez does not support President Obama's proposed
easing of travel restrictions on Cuba. And during his sole
term in the Senate, Martinez was a strong supporter of then-
President Bush on tough sanctions as the best course.
This, despite the .fact that many Cuban Americans found
the restrictions hurt family.members left behind and did lit-
tle to persuade the Castro government to open up dialogue
with the United States.
Then Martinez talked about energy policy and oil -explo-
ration offshore.
As a GOP leader in the U.S. Senate, Florida's junior sena-
tor supported Bush, who decided to end a presidential mora-
torium on offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
Ironically, it was Bush's 'father, Bush 41, who first
imposed the ban back in the 1980s, extending protection to
vast areas in the eastern Gulf bordering Florida's pristine
beaches.
But when gasoline prices shot up past $4 a gallon, chants
of "drill, baby, drill" became a powerful mantra as
'Republican leaders tried to make high gas prices a wedge
issue with Democrats, who maintained their support of the.
offshore drilling ban, including a threat by Florida's senior
U.S. senator, Bill Nelson, to filibuster.
Now, far from that political fray and having decided he no
longer has the stomach for a.re-election fight, Martinez was
sounding a different note during Monday's Key West visit.
He still told our reporter that "oil exploration offshore in
some places may be appropriate," but then quickly -added a
big caveat, "I'm just adamant that it cannot be appropriate
in-the Florida Keys or in the Cuban Keys."
The fact that Martinez has lived on both sides of the
Florida Straits gives him a rather unique perspective on this
debate. -
Now that he's giving up the political spotlight, the former
Orlando mayor who became a powerful U.S. Senator talks
about engaging the Cubans on environmental- concerns,
especially when it comes to offshore oil exploration..
Given how far that strays from the GOP hardliners of two
years ago, it says something about the perspective that
'comes with age...and distance from a next election.

'A few calls' from whistleblowers


Schools scandal
puts spotlight
on malfeasance,
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.comn

The burgeoning scandal over
unapproved Monroe County
School District spending shows
the need for whistleblower pro-
tections, says State Attorney
Dennis Ward.
"The whole thing over there
shows a whistleblower's hotline
could have had a big impact
before this took place," Ward:
said Monday.
"I suspect there are other
[local] situations where employ-
ees are sitting there, afraid to say
anything about violations of the
law," said the county's chief
prosecutor.


Ward created a whistleblow-
er's hotline 852-5790 -'in
February to let local government
employees report allegations of
criminal -wrongdoing.
The phone has not been ring-
ing'off the hook, he said.
"We've had a few calls.
We're making progress," Ward
said. "Because of the School
Board thing, we really haven't
had a chance to market the num-
ber yet.
"I'd like to see [the pfione
number] printed on every gov-
ernment employee's paycheck,"
he said. "That would show this
effort has teeth."
Investigators are looking into
whether one or more staff mem-
bers with. the school administra-
tion misused district credit cards
on an array of personal purchas-
es.
In conjunction with the hot-


line, local governments are con-
sidering local ordinances to give
whistleblowers more protection.
The Islamorada Village
Council is scheduled to discuss
such a proposal at its Thursday
meeting. Councilwoman Jill
Zima Borski requested the item
be placed on the agenda.
When the Monroe County
Commission meets April 15, the
board will consider, advertising
its version of theordinance for
public hearings.
A staff report summarized the
ordinance's intent "to strengthen
the county's 'whistleblower
policies to ensure maximum pro-
tection from reprisal for Monroe
County employees when report-
ing unlawful activity...."
"Hopefully this will serve as
a preventative measure and it
will never have to be used," said
Commissioner Kim Wigington,
an advocate of the ordinance.
"Maybe just knowing it's there


'I'd like to see (the phone number)
printed on every government
employee's paycheck. That would
show this effort has teeth.'
- State Attorney Dennis Ward


will be a deterrent."
Monroe County needs the
law, Wigington said.
"This has been an issue
important to me since 2002 and
2003," she said, pointing to a
controversy over county con-
tracts with KW Resort Utilities,
a private Stock Island sewer util-
ity.
"Over the years, there have
been instances that come to
mind," she said. "I know there
sometimes was pressure on peo-
ple not to bring certain things to
light."


State and federal laws pro-
vide some protection, the com-
missioner said, but the local law
outlines specific actions and
responsibilities on a county
level.
"It's very important to me to
have this strengthened to the nth
degree," Wigington said.
"Maybe there's nothing there
to report on," she said. "But look
at the Sch6ol Board issue. Some
members were severely criti-
cized for asking specific ques-
tions but over time,- they were
vindicated in asking."

Weekley running for commission in District 1


Former mayor
regrets vote
on Duck Tours
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Former Key West Mayor
Jimmy Weekley says he's getting
back into'politics: He's running
for the District I City Com-
mission seat.
Earlier, Tom Milone
announced he was running for the
seat, now 'held by Bill Verge.
Verge says he will decide whether
to run for re-election after the
USS Vandenberg is scuttled as an
artificial reef off Key West later
this year.
"I'll make a decision probably
sometime in June," Verge says. "I
can't think about politics right
now. Running is a big effort. You

these things.",
The Key West election is Oct.
6. So far, 14 people have picked
up candidate qualifying packets
to run for mayor or commissioner
in District I, III or VI.
District I includes large Old
Town residential areas, Lower
Duval businesses, the Truman
Annex and Navy property.
Weekley says "there were a
number of people encouraging
me to run for mayor again." But,
"Having served as mayor and
having served as commissioner,
the votes are the same."
Weekley says he hopes to
address quality-of-life issues like
downtown parking, traffic flow,
cleanliness, noise levels and ille-
gal transient rentals.
Weekley was an eight-year
mayor (four two-year terms) and a
commissioner for 14 years earlier.
In 2005, Weekley lost to current
Mayor Morgan McPherson by just
24 votes. Then in 2007, the pair
met again in a runoff, and
McPherson beat Weekley again, by
just 59 votes out of the 7,103 cast.
Weekley was a commissioner
when Seafari Duck Tours sued


the city in 1996 alleging the city's
rules effectively put it out of the
sightseeing business and gave Ed
Swift's Historic Tours of America
a monopoly.
Duck Tours sued and, just last
month, agreed to settle with the
city for $8 million.
"I was one of five commis-
sioners that voted," Weekley
says. "My vote dealt with the size
of [Duck Tours'] vehicles and the
impact it was going to cause. We
needed to listen to the advice of
our attorney and we took that
advice.".
"It lost the city a lot of money
and I regret that," he says. But, "'I
thought it was the correct vote at
the time."
As for McPherson, he says
he's running for another term but
has yet to pick up the paperwork
to do so.
Other candidates in the hunt
so far:
+ For mayor, Sloan Bashinsky
and Craig Cates have completed
candidate packets. Jimmy Mira
has picked up the necessary
paperwork but not returned it to
the City Clerk's Office.
+ In District I, Weekley and
Milone are confirmed candidates.

In District III, Commissioner

re-election. Bill Estes, who ran
unsuccessfully for County
Commission last year, has com-
pleted the paperwork to run. John
Davison, Billy Wardlow and
Thomas Lavender have all picked
up, but not returned, candidate
packets.
In District VI, James

returned, the paperwork to run.

beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the

Center at the waterfront.

Peter Batty and Lou Hernandez,
respectively. Nobody, including
the incumbents, has picked up
candidate paperwork.
Utility Board members and
city commissioners serve four
year.
There are 16,167 registered
votes in Key West, precincts 1
through 10 in Monroe County.
The last day to register for the
city election is Sept. 8.
Candidate qualifying begins at
noon Aug. 17 and ends at noon
Aug. 21. Early voting for the gen-
eral election, which is Oct. 6,
begins on Sept. 21. A runoff elec-
tion, if needed, is Nov. 3.


The forum will include a
panel of stakeholders in the
proposed development of the
property. They will give 10-
minute presentations and then
field questions from the pub-
lic.
The panel comprises Norma
Jean Sawyer, director of the
Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust; Bookie Henriquez,
chairman of the Florida Keys
Assisted Care Coalition; Doug
Bradshaw to discuss city proj-
ects on the parcel; Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson;
and Ron Demes representing
the U.S. Navy.
The city recently received
two bids on a request for pro-
posals issued to construct and
possibly manage a marina at
the waterfront.
The last trust is negotiating
a lease with the city to develop
6.6 acres of the land into 60 to
70 affordable apartments along
with retail shops, grocery mar-
kets, artists studios and a
Bahamian cultural museum.
The lease was on the agenda
for Tuesday's City Com-
mission but pulled at the
request of Commissioner Dan
Kolhage because he planned to
be out of town.
The Assisted Living
Coalition has secured a lease
with the city and is looking for
financing to build 40 assisted-
care apartments and 95 inde-
pendent-living apartments.

Seagrape rises in Marathon


Affordable
complex to
have 84 units
By RYAN McCARTHY :
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Many. thought the Carlisle
Group's Seagrape affordable
housing development in
Marathon would never happen.
Take a look at the laundry list
of the delays plaguing the 84-
unit rental project for more than
five years, and you can see why.
It was enough to prompt Carlisle
Principal Lloyd Boggio to say
he'll never work in the Keys
again.
But Carlisle has bucked the
odds and last week held an offi-
cial groundbreaking ceremony at
Seagrape's mile marker 51 con-
struction site.
"Most of us at one time
doubted this would ever happen.
I'll admit it," Boggio said
Wednesday. "The unusual thing
is this is as fast as it could get
done."
A court ruling over endan-
gered species habitat and flood
insurance in 2005 postponed the
project one year.. Then, in May
2008, the Marathon City Council
had to approve site changes that
arose when, an engineering
mishap led to a utility pole being
installed in the middle of the
complex's entrance.
The last snag was being
denied South Florida Water
Management District permits
because of "low-quality wet-
lands" created by rainfall after
the removal of invasive exotic
plants. Ultimately, the permits
were issued.
And Carlisle persevered and
began preparing the lot for con-
struction in August 2008. Project
Manager Ken Naylor said it's
now around 35 percent complete
and should be finished by
January.
The Florida Housing Finance
Corp. awards the tax credits
Carlisle uses to fund its projects.
The credits are dollar-for-dollar
tax offsets that Carlisle sells for
85 cents on the dollar to finance
its construction.
A requirement of the tax cred-
its for Seagrape is that tenants
earn no more than 60 percent of
Monroe County's median
.ippome, which according to
2008,- Housing Finance.. Corp.

Martinez talks Cuba, drilling


Senator makes.
a quick, visit
to the Keys
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Change in Cuba needs to.
come from within, and travel and
trade restrictions the U.S. has


imposed on the island shouldn't
be lifted, U-.S. Sen. Mel Martinez-
said Monday.
The junior senator, who is not
seeking a second term in 2010,
was in Key West Monday to meet
with local officials to discuss
issues such as sewer funding and
the future of Key West Harbor.
But considering President


Obama's campaign pledge to
ease some restrictions on Cuba
- which is just 90 miles 'from
Key West Martinez spent time
also talking about our communist
neighbor to the south.
As the law stands, Cuban
Americans are allowed one visit
to Cuba per year and cannot send
more than $1,200 per person per
year to Cuban family members.
Obama has said he plans to abol-
ish the family travel and remit-
tance policies.
"I think you're going to see an
announcement on that in the very
near term. That's not going to fun-
damentally change anything
between us and Cuba -at the
moment," said Martinez, a Repub-
lican. He's the first Cuban-bom
U.S. senator and moved to America
from Cuba when he was 15.
"Cuba does not evolve very
well," Martinez said. "So, for
Cuba to be a very different neigh-
bor, there are going to have to be
a lot of changes in Cuba, whicl I
have a hard time predicting."
Politics aside, Martinez says,
"I can't wait to take that ferry
boat ride back" once Cuba
embraces democracy.
As talks drifted toward envi-
ronmental concerns in the Keys,
Martinez identified the environ-
ment and energy independence as
possible jumping-off points for
talks with Raul Castro's regime.
"I. certainly think we have to
do all that we can to work on

areas where we can have some
collaboration that have to do with
the environment," he says.
One of those areas could pos-
sibly be oil exploration.
"Right now, there isn't any-
thing going on, but there is obvi-
ously some interest," Martinez
says, referring to Cuba oil explo-
ration and drilling. But, "This
could become more.a reality than
a hypothetical."
The U.S. has in place a mora-
torium on offshore drilling
excluding parts of Alaska and the
Gulf of Mexico. But a 1977 mar-
itime boundary negotiated with
the Cubans evenly divides sur-
rounding waters, meaning that
Cuba could theoretically drill 45

miles from Key West.
"I think oil exploration off-
shore in some places may be
appropriate. I'm just adamant that
it cannot be appropriate in the
Florida Keys or in the Cuban
Keys, frankly. I grew up in those
waters on the other side and I've
had my adult life on this side of
those waters. It's a very, very sen-
sitive and beautiful resource that
just, I don't think, could not toler-
ate a lot of the things that go
along with oil drilling."
Due to the flow of the Gulf
Stream, an oil spill off the north-
west coast of Cuba could mean
big trouble for the Keys.
"I think what we need to do is
to continue to work diligently on
alternative energy sources so
there's not as much of a desperate
need for oil. Secondly, maybe
engage with the Cubans on some
environmental concerns so we
can mutually agree that might not
be a smart thing to do."
Key West Democrat Joe Allen,
a former educator, has announced
he will run for Martinez's seat,
although he appears to be a long
shot.
Also running is U.S. Rep.
Kendrick Meek, a Miami
Democrat who has already raised
$1.7 million for his campaign,
and state Sen. Dan Gelber, a
Miami Beach Democrat who has
raised $400,000.
Other names talked about as
candidates include former state
House Speaker Marco Rubio, a
Miami Republican, and
Republican congressmen Connie
Mack and Vern Buchanan, both
of Southwest Florida. GOP Gov.
Charlie Crist has not said if he's
running, but there's lots of specu-
lation he will.

City rethinks allocation of home permits


70 affordable
tied up in two
big developments
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
will dust off some 22 develop-
ment agreements at a special
meeting April 21, in part to take
stock of affordable housing build-
ing permit allocations tied up in
projects that have made little
progress the past few years.
Last week,, the council dis-
cussed two of those agreements,
with Earthmark Companies and
Old Town Key West Develop-.
ment, during its regular meeting.
The agreements have allocations
for 70 units of affordable housing
tied up between them, which
some council members feel
should be taken back and given to


individuals.
Earthmark's redevelopment of
the Knight's Key RV Camp-
ground into the 199-unit luxury
resort Maranu Luxe Bungalow
Resort and Spa was approved in
October 2006 but has yet to break
ground. Swift's 40-unit Paradise
Landings was approved in 2007
and is in limbo due to a struggling
economy.
"We do have permits stuck out
there with development agree-
ments. I 'think we need to take
these back and as many others as
we can and make them avail-
able," Mayor Mike Cinque said.
Councilwoman Ginger Snead
said the city has "at least 10"
property owners whose construc-
tion plans have been stalled by a
lack of available allocations.
A master list ranking afford-
able housing permit applicants
provided by Planning Director


George Garrett lists 58 separate
lots, many owned by the same
person or corporation. But
Garrett says the likelihood of
anyone actually using an afford-
able allocation in the current mar-
ket is slim.
"The reality is a lot of people
don't want to take them -
affordable or market rate. Can I
go to a list? Yes, but are those
people ready to build? Who
knows," he said.
Garrett says the problem is a
lack of financing, which Swift
reiterated to the council last
Tuesday. Swift said an inability to
secure financing for homebuyers
is preventing him from securing
funds to build his 104th Street
project on city-owned land.
Still, Garrett said it might be
best to extend Swift's agreement
since he's more likely to actually
build the 40 units than individu-
als. In all likelihood, Garrett said,
"We couldn't get 40 people to


build 40 affordable units right
now to save our lives."
Meanwhile, the council also
narrowly approved at second


'We do have
permits stuck
out there with
development
agreements.'
Mayor Mike Cinque


hearing a pair of ordinances seem-
ingly de-emphasizing the need for
affordable housing in the city.
The first reduces the fee to
transfer building rights between
properties from $60,000 to
$20,000. The idea was to charge


30 percent of the estimated
$200,000 cost to construct an
affordable unit as a way to pre-
serve existing affordable housing,
and develop a fund for new proj-
ects.
The second ordinance codified
a resolution the council passed
last year allowing medium-sized
and smaller hotels and motels to
redevelop without having to con-
tribute 20 percent of the redesign
to affordable housing.
Vice Mayor Don Vasil and
Councilman Pete Worthington
dissented on each vote, as they
did at first hearing March 10.
They said they feel lowering cash
payments will fail to encourage
development and that affordable
housing waivers should be han-
dled on a case-by-case basis by
the council.
Only two $60,000 payments
to the city's Affordable Housing
Program Fund have been made in
the past two years.

Yet my highly educated dad struggled financially
all his life and the other dad would become one of
the richest men I had ever known.
One died leaving tens of millions of dollars to his family,
charities, and his church. The other left a legacy of unpaid
bills. Both men were strong, charismatic,
and influential.
Both men offered me advice, but they did
not advise the same things.
Having two dads as advisors offered me the perspective of
contrasting'points of view: one of a rich man and one of a
poor, man. This forced me to think about,
and ultimately choose, a way'of thinking for myself.
A way of thinking that assures long-term wealth

Business pros
start corporate
travel company
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

She plans Fantasy Fest and
he's the vice president of Vox
Communications, owner of both-
Conch Country and U.S. 1 Radio.
It's not as though they don't have
enough to do. But when both
Ashley Hoover and Tom
Maloney saw room for another
corporate travel business in the
Keys, they went for it.
"I just always liked to work,"
says Hoover of building a busi-
ness in her off hours.
Maloney came to Key West in
2004 from Palm Springs, Calif.,
where he'd owned a hotel. He
was hoping to buy a hotel.here,
but couldn't find anything that
seemed to make sense. So he
started a real estate company
called Bicoastal, and watched as
hotels were being built up all
around him. He says he noticed
that there were lots of wedding
planners in Key West, but not
many destination management
companies to do event planning
for corporations. -
Maloney, 48, took a leap,
incorporating as RSVP Florida,
and starting a local business called
RSVP Key West, to bring corpo-
rate incentive travel to Key West.
But it wasn't until a year later
that he met Hoover, the 28-year-
old co-director of Fantasy Fest
for The Market Share Company,
and found a business partner.
They met in late 2007, and began
talking about RSVP almost
immediately.
Hoover knew how to organize
big events, and knew how to do
corporate travel, having started in
event planning in St. Louis
through an internship at the age
of 19. She worked in corporate
meeting management through her
early 20s, loving the work, but
not the lifestyle.
"I was in St. Louis. I hated
corporate life. We had three ice
storms...I said, 'This is it,'" she
says.
Hoover says she saw a help-
wanted ad online for someone to
help run.Fantasy Fest in Key West.
"I said, 'You got to be kidding
me,'" she remembers.

honors memory
of Marathon man
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's time to dust off the old
spikes and mitt again,, as the
fourth annual Nate Grill Co-ed
Softball Tournament kicks off
bright and early April 18 at the
Marathon Community Park.
The tournament honors the
memory of longtime Marathon
resident Nate Grill, who died
in an auto accident on April
-15, 2005, at age 32. Grill's
former fiance Lisi Cordova
started the tournament in 2006
to benefit students at
Marathon High School.
The tournament raises
money for the Nate Grill
Scholarship Foundation and
last year brought in more than
$12,000 for Marathon stu-
dents. Since its creation, the
Nate Grill Scholarship
Foundation has awarded more
than $25,000 to 12 Marathon
High graduates.
Cordova said starting the
tournament Grill was an
avid softball player. and had a
genuine kinship with young
people was an easy deci-
sion to make. It's. held each
year at this time to celebrate
Grill's life and memory.

birth, the Florida Keys Area
Health Education Center is con-
ducting a free workshop open to
all pregnant women, or women
planning a family, on April 16
from 10 to 11 a.m. at the

Cesarean birth, often called a
C-section, can be lifesaving for
both mother and baby under
many circumstances, such as the
baby being in a head-up or breech
position or for a mother who is
suffering from a serious illness.
But some who undergo
cesarean births also face
increased complications:

tion, DeNoble relates his story of
being hired by a major tobacco
company to develop a "safer cig-
arette." While working on this
"safer cigarette," he conducted
his own research on the addictive

When company executives
discovered what DeNoble was
doing, they fired him. He went on
to testify in front on Congress.

Fins easily swat Canes


Dolphins now
confidently
await district
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
tennis teams are playing their
best tennis at the right time,
coach Chris Bull says.
. Both the boys (7-0) and girls
(5-2) earned easy victories Friday
over Coral Shores High School in
their final tuneup prior to
Tuesday's District 16-1A touma-
ment in Miami. .
No. 1 John Danaher (8-1) and'
No. 2 Kerry Wonderlin (8-2) led
the way for the boys with con-
vincing singles victories over
Zack Stroup and Ray Vaughn.
The pair also combined for an 8-
1 No. 1 doubles victory over
Stroup and Vaughn.
No. 3 Jonnie Lancaster (8-2),
No. 4 Ricardo Dominguez (9-7)
and No. 5 Steven Nelson (8-3)
rounded out a sweep of the sin-
gles matches for the Dolphins.
They also won No. 2 doubles 8-
4 over James Engstoom and
Thomas Livchar.
Bull said the boys (4-7) are
playing their best tennis at the
right time and hope to improve
on last year's district tournament
showing.


"They started out 0-7 against
Key West and it wasn't looking
good, but I've seen tremendous
improvement with them. They're
peaking at the right time and they
might surprise people at dis-
tricts," he said.
The Dolphin girls, meanwhile,
have won three straight matches

Baseball Dolphins cruise


Esquirol leads
Marathon squad
over Palmer
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School
earned its first district win of
the season Friday, thanks in
large part to the timely hitting
of sophomore Doniel Esqtirol.
Esquirol had three hits,
scored two runs and knocked


in another as the Dolphins
continued a solid late-season
run with a 6-2 win over rival
Palmer Trinity School.
"He's been onr fire lately,"
coach Luis .Leal said of his
nine-hole hitter. "These last
three of four. games, he's been
averaging two or three hits a
game."
Leal hits Esquirol ninth in
an effort' to drive home the
bottom of the lineup if they
reach base, or have a solid hit-

Senior Toby Eigner pitched

"He was throwing hard and

Eagles 'out of gas'


Baseball team
stands at 8-9
in mid-break
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

After a hectic stretch on the
diamond, Island Christian's
baseball Eagles need this
week's Spring Break, said
coach Tony Hammon.
By the time the Eagles (8-9)
dropped a 10-5 decision to
Sheridan Hills Christian on
Friday, "we were completely
out of gas," Hammon said.
"That could have been a
*win, but we never got running
on all cylinders," he said., 'Our
guys were tired."
The Eagles were drained
physically and emotionally
after a Thursday game at Class
- A power Champagnat Catholic
of Hialeah abruptly ended in the
fifth inning.
"We were down by six runs
but making a run," Hammon
said. "Champagnat was out of
pitchers. We were hitting well
with two innings to go, lots of
time."
Then the officials declared


the night game had reached its
time limit and halted play, he
said.
"This was a varsity game
that affects our district record.
There is no time limit,"
Hammon said. "It was an ugly
way to lose a game."
Island Christian plans to
lodge a protest with the Florida
High School Athletic
Association, but the interrup-
tion effectively deprives the
Eagles of a comeback bid, said
the coach.
"We can never replicate that
situation. Even if we finish the
game, Champagnat's pitchers
will be rested."
The Eagles took a 3-2 lead
over Champagnat with a three-
run rally in the top of the third.
A triple by Phillip Izaguirre, a
double by Aaron Izaguirre and
Tom Cavanagh's single fueled
the rally.
Champagnat regained the
lead at 8-3, but the Eagles
answered with three more runs
in the fifth. Aaron Izaguirre
cracked a two-run double after
Phillip tripled and Cavanah sin-
gled. Kalan Carter singled in
Jordan Izaguirre, who drew a
walk.


Conchs crush Hialeah


KEY WEST / From 17

on a high note into.Tuesday's
long-awaited game against
Monsignor Pace, which was
completed too late for today's
paper.
The Conchs, who won, 19-
:0, against Westland in
February, jumped to a 4-0 lead
in the first inning, then added
four in the second, 'two in the
third and six in the fourth.
Kendall Galvan, Kayla.
Reams and Natalie Dudley
each had three hits, -with
Galvan scoring four runs.
Third baseman Jewel
Gonzalez had two hits and


Madison Disson, Ceci
Cervantes, Andrea Niles and
Tori Solano alli had one.
Key West played without
starters Alicia Arrazola and
Brianna Masiello, but it didn't
matter against the inexperi-
enced and error-prone
Wildcats. The Conchs stole
bases at will and took extra
bases on throws from the out-
field.
Hawthorne used a fastball
that Westland rarely hit out of
the' infield. Despite the mid-
afternoon heat, she was still
strong- at the finish, striking
out the last two batters in the
fifth.

ing things, but overall. tfus was a
thrilling year," Hall said. "I'm
very proud of our girls and happy
for them."
Palmer earned the right to
advance to the South Florida
Interscholastic Association
regional playoffs, breaking open
a close game at halftime with a
flurry of scores.
The Falcons, demonstrating a
superior passing attack, scored
twice within a minute midway


through the second half, taking an
S8-3lead that dimmed the chances
of a Coral Shores rally.
Senior Lexi Glista,kept up the
pressure on the Falcon goal, scor-
ing three goals to lead the
Hurricane attack. But the last
score came with one second on
the clock with the game out of
reach.
Midfielder Melissa Sante
scored two goals in her final
game at Coral Shores.
Rachel Catanio, Coral Shores'
leading scorer for the season, was
capably defensed by Palmer, who


W~ tZI


had already, seen the damage the
relentless senior attacker can do
in two previous games. She
scored once in the district final.
"They did an excellent job of
keeping Rachel contained," Hall
said. "This was a game we would
have loved to win, but Palmer has


a great club."
Falcons standout Kat
Nordqvist scored seven goals
against the stout Cane defense.
Coral Shores scored the
match's first goal, but Palmer
moved out to a 4-1 lead by the
time the Canes scored again.
"We had a slow start," Hall
said. "I don't know why but our
shooting was off. We had 11
opportunities to score on penalty
shots but only made two. When
you leave that many goals in the
table, it makes a difference."
Palmer goalie Angela
Vallecilla frustrated the Cane
attackers with 15 saves.
On the other end, Cane junior
goalie Dannon Magrane netted
10 saves against constant pres-
sure.

when senior Kayla Rigby scored
the first "in-play" goal of her
career. Her previous goal came
on a penalty shot.
"We're losing a lot of fo~ur-
year players, but there is a lot of
young talent coming up," Hall
said. "The future of our program
looks exciting."
Coral Shores lost to only two

Opportunities abound


You're all but
guaranteed some
nifty catches

Nice weather overall the
past week has given anglers an
opportunity to try most any-
venue, and reports have been
good for the most part. There
were some anglers who didn't
have the best catches'but the
opportunity was there.
Quite a few species have
made their seasonal appearance
in good numbers the past week
or so, with the good news being
they seem to be hungry from
their trips. We have also seen a
decrease in the winter species
throughout most of the local
waters, with kingfish and
mackerel being the most obvi-
ous. Their numbers and fre-
quency of biting has waned
substantially with the excep-
tion of some of the reef spots,
where they. still seem to be
quite aggressive around some
of the yellowtail fishermen.
Several of the species that
have shown up are dolphin,
permit and tarpon. While the
dolphin action isn't red hot yet,
some nice ones have been taken
lately; the nice weather has
allowed anglers to venture well
offshore to locate some nice
fish. Most of the larger ones
were found around floating


in d. e bris
C o- rather than
just on
w e e d
lines.
Some
ae very big
amon tripletail
e wwere also
..taken in
t h these
areas. And
Several

Dave Navarro reported
multiple
wahoo working diving plugs
near the floating debris.
Additionally, I talked with a
couple of anglers that ventured
25-plus miles out and were
lucky enough to come across a
passing school of yellowfin
tuna and hook up a few. But the
schools were moving quite fast
and after spending a good
amount of time with the fight,
they were unable to relocate the
school.
Permit have been quite
active around area flats and
most of the bridge channels,
with live crabs being the bait of
choice. Some. of the fish have
been well into the 15-pound-
plus range, which provides a
fantastic fight, particularly on
light tackle.
Working a live crab around
the bridges has provided
anglers with the option of a per-


mit or some of the tarpon that
have arrived. I've also heard of
anglers offshore and on the reef
spotting huge schools of travel-
ing tarpon coming in. It's an
awesome sight to see more than
an acre of fish in a tight school
rolling and traveling with a pur-
pose.
From what I've heard, there
seems to have been several
dozen of these big schools
working into the Middle Keys
this past week. This bodes well
for anglers that are looking for
a few rounds with the silver
king.
Speaking of the silver kings,
on April 30, the 43rd annual
Marathon International Tarpon
Tournament will kick off for
three evenings of fishing; and
the women will have their turn
on May 9 and 10 with the 33rd
annual Ladies Tarpon
Tournament. Both events target
tarpon, of course, using 12- and
30-pound test line. We have
information on both events at
the store or by calling 743-
6139.
Other action that's been
quite good: Flats fishing and
areas in the bay, with snapper
and a few grouper. The nice-
sized fish are reported to be
mostly near the back islands in
shallower waters. Sixteen-inch-
plus snappers have been the
norm for many. Live shrimp
and cut fresh ballyhoo have
been the baits of choice, along
with small live pinfish.
Some nice snapper have also
been taken around the area
bridge channels as of late.
Hawk Channel has. had good
reports of nice lane snapper and
a few big muttons.
On some of the nicer days, a
few anglers ventured well into
the gulf to the big wrecks and
structures out there and were
rewarded with some very nice
cobia and a good mix of other
species. So basically, it's all out
there for the taking. The only
thing holding you up from hav-
ing a nice fresh fish dinner is
not going to get them.
