'Most beautiful emu I've ever met'


EMU / From 1

icopter above was doing. The
chopper crew was looking for an
escaped convict, not the emu.
"One of the kids was like,
What was that, a duck, a
dinosaur?" Dickinson says. "You
could tell. he was really tired."
She says the emu "couldn't
get out of the water. He had
nowhere to go. He didn't know
what to do."
But the folks at the barbecue
did: "Two of the guys who are
staying here pulled him out.
Wouldn't you know, .he jumped
right back in the water again. And
he just kind of did circles."
So Dickinson and her husband
Darryl jumped in their boat and
tried to get the emu's attention.
"I tried to grab his neck, but
you can't just lift an 80-pound
emu out of the water," Dickinson
says. "So my husband helped me.
We got him to the ground and put
a towel over his head and kind of
just sat there and waited for Maya
and her husband to arrive."
"I said, That's very strange,
very bizarre an emu," Totman
says.
But she and her husband
Sebastian did what they know
best: They took the emu back to
their wildlife center and checked
it out for injuries. ,


KM-w ^_-a.^ ------ ------ -- -- ^. i ,---CL----- - f -------- l
This is the second attempt at capturing the emu. The takedown
was successful and it's now doing fine on Big Pine Key.


"She's doing fine, eating from
my hand," Totman said Friday.
"She's very sweet, the most beau-
tiful emu I've ever met."
So it's girl?
"I'm not sure; I haven't
looked there yet," Totman said.


"But I call her a girl because she-
is so friendly. She's very sweet."
Totman's going to try to track
down the owner but in the mean-
time is keeping the emu happy
with "all kinds of vegetables. She
likes tomatoes, cut-up squash."

Suspect bites deputy
so hard, bone shows

A Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputy went to the hospital
after a suspect bit one of his


pinkies so hard that the bone
showed.
The injury happened at the
Sugarloaf KOA Campground
Tuesday night, after deputies
Deborah Ryan and Walter
Kirchner responded to the camp-


ground to reports of a fight. When
they arrived, witnesses directed
them to a tent where they said one
of the men involved was hiding.
They found Vincent Deegan',
18, on an air mattress. When they
tried to rouse him, he reportedly


began fighting.
During the struggle, Deegan
reportedly grabbed Ryan's radio
and threw it across the room, and
then bit Kirchner's pinky finger. It
took five stitches at Lower Keys
Medical Center to close the injury.


Deegan was charged with three
counts of battery and one count of
aggravated battery on law enforce-
ment officers; resisting arrest with
violence; and obstruction by
depriving an officer of her means
of communication.

SCHOOLS / From I

other abuses by school employ-
ees, are now being investigated
by state and federal agencies as
well as School Board-hired
investigators.
Randy Acevedp said he could
not explain the credit card pur-
chases matching his campaign
expenses and reiterated he was-
n't going to comment on matters
involving the investigation of his
wife.
"My wife did work with me
on the campaign," Acevedo said.
"I'll just have to see how the
investigation plays out."
State Attorney Dennis Ward
said if the campaign was com-
bining its funds with School
District money, that would con-
stitute theft, which Ward said is
punishable by up to five years in
prison.
Jennifer Davis, a spokes-
woman for the Florida
Department of State, said .Randy
Acevedo could face civil fines
from the Florida Elections
Commission if someone files a
complaint and it's held up as
valid. -
School Board member John
Dick brought the elections and
credit card documents to Ward's
office and to federal investiga-
tors Friday, and said they were
already aware of the issues.
"It looks like [the Acevedos]
weren't even trying to hide what
they were doing," Dick said. "I
mean, it's the same store, the
same exact. amount of money
and the same date. You can draw
your own conclusion there."
The transactions include indi-
vidual purchases at Key West
stores Kmart, OfficeMax,
Albertsons, Walgreens and GFS
Marketplace made Aug. 7 to
Aug. 16, and one on Oct. 18.
The transactions listed on the
campaign expense report and
district credit card statements
have identical vendors and costs
and occurred, at most, two days
apart from each other.
However, the reported pur-
poses for the transactions differ.
For instance, a $119.34 purchase
at Albertsons is reported as
"school supplies" in the cam-
paign report, and "supplies for
culinary" in the district Finance
Department's credit card system.
The. receipt.fpr, that,purchase
showvs 14'btas'of Htishey'Kitses-
chocolats' "iand' 16' 'boxes of
.*Band-Aids and banidaies.


School Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said the matching cam-
paign expenditures and credit
card purchases show Randy and
Monique Acevedo routinely
broke district policy governing
purchasing cards: and personal
expenses.
"Basically she just ran out of
money to reimburse the school.
They were robbing Peter to pay
Paul until it came to a head,"
Griffiths said.

Expanding probe
Griffiths said he wants the
investigators, to also look into
how far back the cosmetology
program, which Monique
Acevedo oversaw, has been
cash-only. Students who want to

take cosmetology classes must,
pay in cash and the students do
nails and hair on customers, who
also pay only in cash.
Investigators found that only
about $1,900 out of more than
$30,000 in deposits were in the
cosmetology class' bank
account.
"We can't match the deposits
with cash in the accounts,"
Griffiths said. "The most egre-
gious part of this whole thing is
that people might have been put-
ting cash into their pockets.".
He said the cash-only policy
goes back to Monique Acevedo's
predecessor, John Andola.
Andola told The Reporter that he
doesn't remember when the class
began the requirement,.or why.
, "I don't remember any of the
details. I just don't" recall,"
Andola said.

Caution on outsourcing


County, district
to talk more
about proposal
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.comn

There may be roadblocks, but
Monroe County School Board
member Steve. Pribramsky says
he left a Thursday meeting feel-
ing positive about potentially out-
sourcing some School District
functions to the county.
"The county -was very gra-
cious and receptive. They want to
make sure that there are three
School Board members that want
to do this," he said. "I'm going to
bring a resolution asking the
School Board to ask the County,
Commission to direct staff to
look at the feasibility of this
undertaking."
Pribramsky said he'll pitch the
idea to fellow board members at
the School Board's April 21
meeting.
But county Mayor George
Nuegent cautioned that timing for
such an agreement may be delayed
until next year, since the School
Board is dealing with so many
issues over financial controls.
The district is in the midst of
an ongoing forensic audit stem-
ming from reported credit card
fraud and other allegations made
against Monique Acevedo, for-
mer schools adult education coor-

Key West City Hall
rehab scaled back

The Key West City Com-
mission on Tuesday heard from
its architecture firm mbi/k2m,
which presented a scaled-back
plan to renovate City Hall.
instead.of build a new one.
The renovation -would cost
about $9 million and be spread
across five years. That includes
a total rehab 'of the existing
17,000-square-foot building at
525 Angela St., plus a new fire
station.
An earlier proposal called for
spending $25 million on a

dinator and the wife of
Superintendent Randy Acevedo.
SPribramsky said two main
topics discussed Thursday were
purchasing and group insurance.
Both government bodies have
departments overseeing the same
function, he said, adding that sav-
ings necessary to meet significant
state-mandated cuts could come
by joining forces with the county.
The School District must
shave some $12 million off this
year's $88 million budget.
Pribramsky said those savings
need to come outside classroom,
not further cuts to teaching staff
and classroom materials.
The hope, he said, is to "look
at us eliminating those depart-
ments and working in conjunc-
tion with the county. Everyone
wants to help the taxpayers ... if it
can be accomplished."
Pribramsky said he discussed
economies of scale with Neugent
before the Acevedo allegations
surfaced. Neugent attended
Thursday's meeting and said that
investigation could delay any
partnership between the county
and the School Board.
"The School Board has some
serious issues going on that need
to be cleared up. Because of the
short time we have to deal with
this before we get to making a
.budget, we may not do this until
the next budget cycle," he said.

Neugent said county staff will
be spending most of its time deal-
ing with a significant budget
reduction of its own in the com-
ing fiscal year.
"At the very earliest would be
to get it on the May meeting for
the County Commission, and if
we couldn't get something onto
that [agenda], then we're getting
into budget discussions and do
we take staff's time when it takes
away from them working on our
business at hand?" he said.
Meanwhile, the role for
County Clerk Danny Kolhage in
any potential schools-county
partnership remains in limbo.
Before Thursday's meeting,
Pribramsky said he looked for-
ward to having Kolhage's office
provide oversight, just as his
office does now for the county
operations:
One of the duties of Kolhage's
office is to perform internal
audits when necessary.
"Danny pretty much sat silent-
ly saying, 'Yes, I'll watch and
participate in the meeting, but at
this point in time you haven't dis-
cussed anything that brings me
into the machinations,"' Neugent
said.

Village spins wheels

with sewer progress

Sewer studies are a lucrative business for engineers and other
consultants. But spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on
studies doesn't put one shovel in the ground.
If you need proof of that, look no further than the latest round
of on-again, off-again, on-again talks between the village of
Islamorada and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District
board.
On Tuesday, the Key Largo governing board voted 4-1 to
reopen talks with Islamorada. about possibly piping village
sewage to be treated in Key Largo's plant. But there's a hitch:'
Who's going to pay to update the feasibility study completed
last year?:
Islamorada already spent $150,000 for a pipeline feasibility
study last. year, only it concluded shipping sewage to Key
Largo didn't make sense financially. But apparently that's old
news.
Last week, the Village Council on a split vote directed
Mayor Don Achenberg to reopen talks with the district.
This week, district Chairwoman Susan Hammaker told
reporter David Ball that "the times and economies are differ-
ent," and her board needs to explore any potential savings..
The premise is one larger plant serving Key Largo and parts.
of Islamorada would be cheaper to operate than having multi-
ple plants;
But it's hard. for property owners in Key Largo to see how
paying for a bigger plant to service Islamorada will save them
money. ..
But at Tuesday's meeting, board member Robert Majeska said
adding village sewage would reduce connection fees by $600
per hookup in Key Largo, a potential savings of $9 million.
Enter Village Manager Ken Fields, who says Islamorada
already paid $150,000 for a feasibility study last year and a sec-
ond engineering consultant earlier this year. Now that firm
wants $8-6,000 to update the study and who pays for that?
Achenberg calls the pipeline idea a "dead end [a] dark alley."
And a Plantation Key resident, Bill Kelly, asks in a recently,
published letter to the editor: "Why [do] some people in Key
Largo so desperately want our poop?"
Last August, then village Mayor Cathi Hill said: "At long
last, the Village is ready to resolve the [wastewater] problem."
Well, as it turns out, not yet.
More talks, we suspect and more consultants await, but not
much to show after three years of both in the village. In the
meantime, the Key Largo district and Marathon continue to
forge ahead. Draw your own conclusions.

College president has saved school from going belly-up


EDITOR:
Having read the letters to the editor regarding
Dr. Jill Landesberg-Boyle and the Florida Keys
Community College Board of Trustees, I feel
compelled to write.
Two letters in the April 1 edition criticize Dr.
Boyle or the board. I want to note that the authors
of these letters are a married couple. One of the
authors used to work at FKCC. Perhaps knowing
the agenda of the authors would be helpful in
establishing their credibility.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am an attor-
ney and I represent Dr. Boyle. I am not trying to
hide or misrepresent myself. I am writing this let-
ter in my personal capacity.
In her April 1 letter, Ms. Runnels says the
board should pay attention to anonymous com-
plaints because police base investigations on
anonymous complaints. Perhaps police take.
anonymous tips, but nowhere in my 27 years of
experience working hand in .hand with law
enforcement have I ever seen a warrant, arrest or
prosecution based on anonymous tips. In fact, our
nation was built on a person's right to face their
accusers. Ms. Runnels would have the board base
its decisions on rumors and innuendo.
In your April 4 issue, the letter likens Dr.
Boyle's housing allowance to the Wall Street
multimillion-dollar bonuses paid with bailout


money to the very people responsible for our hor-
rendous economic situation. The letter attacks Dr.
Boyle because she makes more money than the
national average.
The housing allowance only replaces a perk,
which was promised to her at the time she
accepted her job here. And in our capitalistic
society, people who attain advanced degrees and
have professional jobs tend to make more money
than the average person.
Instead, one need only look to the accomplish-
ments of FKCC under Dr. Boyle's leadership. In
the worst economy in my lifetime, FKCC has
been able to secure $4 million for a marine biolo-
gy building, obtain permission from the state to
build dorms for its students, secure a $1 million
gift to rename the diving program the James E.
Lockwood School of Diving Technologies,
secure $200,000 in federal stimulus funding,
increase faculty salaries, and start FKCC's first-
ever student government.
Dr. Boyle has taken a school on the verge of
extinction and turned it around under the most
trying economic times. The board recognizes her
accomplishments when it agrees to pay her hous-
ing costs. Clearly, Dr. Boyle is talented, and tal-
ent is not cheap.

Sewer contractor breaks promise


EDITOR:
I am an owner, and volunteer manager of the
landscaping at a condominium complex on Coco
Plum. For 20 years, we have babied our lawn of
St. Augustine grass at great cost, and also took
care of the right of way to add beauty to the
Coco Plum neighborhood. -
- When Globetec came through to put in the
sewers, we were told that any damage they do to
the lawns and landscaping will be replaced just
like it was before the sewer construction. We
watched as the shovels dug through our estab-
lished, well maintained lawns.
However, when it came time for Globetec to


Put sewer funding to a vote
EDITOR:
Islamorada Village Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt has requested that the taxpayers of-
Islamorada vote on whether to fund a sewer
system.
The price is now hovering around $20,000
per home. Some politicians are nervous because
the.taxpayers who are paying for this might
actually say no. That is the beauty of our
democracy we can vote and voters expect
their elected officials to respect and follow our
wishes.
The times have changed, evident by the
change in the stock market. It is time to look
out for the taxpayers of Islamorada and come
what may with the imposed .but not funded
wastewater system.

replace the lawns with sod, they did not put
down St. Augustine sod, but cheap, dead (and I
mean dead) Bahia grass. Then I come to find out
that even if we were to remove the dead sod so
not to contaminate the established St. Augustine
grass, we would have to get a permit from the
city. Then, on top of the cost of getting a permit
and the cost of paying someone to remove the
dead sod, we would have to then pay to dump
the dead sod.
It is obvious that Globetec took the cheap way
out maybe getting the Bahia grass for free
since it was dead, plus non-experienced people to
install it since it wasn't done correctly. This is a
disgrace, and will cost us dearly to rectify.

No Navy noise means no freedom


EDITOR:
There is nothing like the sound
of an American war bird roaring
overhead, taking off or landing.
These pilots, crews and support
teams are ready to give their
unselfish lives so you can stand


there and wave your protest banner
and complain about how tough
things are for you. Think again.

County's stance on Navy is sad


EDITOR:'
Articles in the Keynoter of April 4
and March 21 lead me to wonder
about the overall intelligence of our
county commissioners. To tell the
U.S. Navy to "immediately cease and
desist" flying F/A-18 fighter jets from
its Boca Chica air station is not realis-
tic nor patriotic.
It is not realistic because the com-
missioners have no authority to issue
such an order. It is unpatriotic because
those men and women are risking
their lives each day for the citizens of
Key West. After training at Boca
Chica, they will next train to qualify
for the aircraft carrier operations, day
and night, good weather or bad, and
then deploy to the Middle East. It
seems to me that a little jet noise is a
small price to. pay for freedom.
If one of the articles was correct
(and I don't believe it was not),
Commissioner Kim Wigington's


statement that she questioned why the
Navy used 10,000 feet of runway for
a plane that can take off in 1,200 feet
and land in 1,800 feet illustrates the
lack of aeronautical knowledge she
has, or does she think that Boca
Chica is an aircraft carrier?
Yes, jet noise is irritating. But the
air station was there before all the
homes were built. Nevertheless, the
commissioners could have resolved
this problem had they agreed to nego-
tiate with the Navy by participating in
the joint land-use study, of which the
cost was to be borne by the Navy in
the amount of 90 percent). Why the
commissioners chose to scuttle the
plan is a mystery to me. The reasons
listed in the Keynoter certainly
weren't justifiable more like a
smokescreen, a sad, sad state of
affairs.

Ship village's sewage to Key Largo


EDITOR:
Kudos to the Islamorada Village
Council for reconsidering the many
advantages of piping our sewage to
Key Largo:
Economies of scale will save
us mohey, since a larger-scale waste-
water plant with more hookups can
deliver cheaper services than several
smaller ones.
One large facility with a big
budget will have the best people,
technology, and service. Multiple
.plants mean more people and equip-
ment, which cost more money and
can result in more operational, serv-
ice and environmental problems
+ Wastewater has been safely
piped over bridges for years in South
Florida and elsewhere. Better yet is
piping under waterways using direc-
tional boring into the bedrock so a
dragging anchor could do no dam-
age.
Small plants like those pro-
posed for Islamorada pump treated
sewage just 80 to 100 feet deep,
where there is always a small
chance, even 1 percent, for, some
seepage into our water. The big Key
Largo plant, however, pumps 3,700
feet deep, where treated sewage is
sealed by several layers of rock. The


deeper well reportedly costs $3 mil-
lion to $4 million vs. just $20,000
for shallow wells. We simply cannot
afford a 3,700-foot deep well, much
less several of them.
If we are ever to have any plants,
they should pump sewage at least as
deep as Key Largo, so our water is
equally protected. After all, we are
the sportfishing capital of the world.
Properties near a sewage plant
often decline in value over time.
With property values plummeting,
we don't need to create new reasons
(i.e., sewage plants with shallow
wells) to push them even lower.
In the unlikely event piping to
Key Largo is a mistake, we can
always build multiple plants later, as
the pipeline and pumping stations
will be there. But what happens if
the multiple-plant approach turns out
to be a financial, operational or envi-
ronmental disaster? Putting aside the
costs, what do you do with several
closed sewage plants or the property
on which they were built? Certainly
not a public park.
Let's keep Islamorada a village of
islands rather than a village of
sewage plants

New Deal rescued Florida,


so why reject a newer one?


With all the talk of late about federal
bailouts and reluctance by some state
lawmakers to accept federal money,
it's timely to remind everyone about
how the New Deal rescued Florida.
Simply put, without federal interven-
tion, the city of Key. West would have
languished in bankruptcy far longer
and with far reaching consequences.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves.
First, let's set the stage.
"Between 1926 and 1929, the skele-
tal remains of unfinished buildings lit-
tered the South Florida landscape,"
writes John A. Stuart, who edited "The
New Deal in South Florida" with John
F. Stack Jr. (University of
Florida Press, 2008).
While that scene may
sound familiar witness
today's landscape littered
With unfinished condos in
Miami and derailed condo-
hotel resorts in the Keys -
conditions back then were
far, far worse.
South Florida's brief
recovery post the Great
Miami Hurricane of 1926
came crumbling down after
the crash on Wall Street in Wayne I
1929. Keynote
"The number of tourists to
the state [in the 1931-32
winter season] dipped to 500,000,"
Stuart writes.
The Florida East Coast Railway,
which had opened a critical rail link to
Key West, went into receivership in
June 1931. The U.S. Navy abandoned
its Key West base in 1932. Key West
was in debt by more than $5 million
and unable to pay policemen, firemen
or garbage collectors.
That's' when the Federal Emergency
Relief Administration camewith $2.5
million to begin the cleanup in Key
West. And the Southernmost City was
not alone in these economic hard times.
By 1933, Stuart writes, "nearly one-
third of Florida's residents were on
relief and the state was nearly bank-
rupt" far worse economic woes than
we're experiencing now.
Then came the 1935 Labor Day hur-
ricane, which killed more than 400 in
the Upper Keys arid washed out rail-
road tracks, bridges and veterans' work
camps. The rail link to the mainland
was severed and within six months, the
railroad declared bankruptcy.
For nearly three years, Key West was
cut off from the mainland except by boat
or flights, three times a week from


Miami.
In 1937, the feds invested $500,000
in a new Key West Navy base, which
began the Southernmost City's turn-
around. An even bigger federal rescue
project Overseas Highway began
with $3.6 million from the Public
Works Administration. The U.S. 1 link
to the mainland made all the differ-
ence. Here's Stuart again: "This
opened the Florida Keys-to the middle-
class American automotive tourist."
The-March 1938 opening of the 106-
mile long road brought a flood of pub-
licity, helping build tourism and prim-
ing the pump for economic recovery in
the Keys, which was further
invigorated by military
buildup and spending dur-
ing World War H.
Those who live and work
in South Florida and the
Keys are still benefiting
S-. from the federal jump-start
nearly 70 years later. Public
treasures such as Fairchild
Tropical Garden and
Matheson Hammock are
among notable Civilian
Conservation Corps projects
/larkham in the region.
Publisher But that legacy also
makes me wonder at the
paucity of public visionaries
today in Florida's corridors of power,
especially those legislators who view
federal recovery money as a temporary
stopgap to staunch this year's budget-
ary red ink.
Three billion dollars pledged by the
feds to help fund Florida schools in
2009-10 is certainly a welcome Band-
Aid, but it pales in comparison to the
scale of long-range public works our
grandparents undertook in those criti-
cal years following the Great
Depression.
The Civilian Conservation Corps
wound up employing more than
500,000 young workers across the
country, which helped create the
national park system we treasure
today.
"Central to the CCC was an impera-
tive to protect natural systems and to
achieve a positive human condition,"
writes author Ted Baker in "The
Civilian Conservation Corps in South
Florida."
Reading Baker's treatise and others
in "The New Deal in South Florida,"
convinces me that we have come so
far, yet learned so very little from our
own history in Florida.

proposals suggested as part of the
park's general management plan
updating.
The meeting at the Key Largo
Holiday Inn opens at 5:30 p.m.
for informal talks with park staff.
At 6 p.m., park officials pres-
ent an overview of the review
process, and outline a series of
four alternatives.
Parkofficials have noted that
the final draft plan, to be released
in 2010 after considering public
comment, is more likely to com-
. bine elements from two or more
of the preliminary alternatives.
Following will be a question-
and-answer period, and time for
public comments.,
Starting at 6 p.m. Monday, the
Key Largo session will be avail-
able for live viewing on the
Internet at the Everglades'
National Park's Web site,

Upper Keys guides and
anglers who helped draft the
Alternative E a plan offered in
2007 to counter suggestions
made by park staff then will
unveil their revised proposal this
weekend and present it to park
staff Monday.
"We want everybody who has
a stake in Florida Bay and the
'park to understand our view-
point," Islamorada guide Jim
Trice said.


ng set

He said the group's plan will
be a "kind of a version 2.5" that
combines elements of the park's
Alternative 2 and Alternative 3.
"We take a little bit from each
with some other things," Trice
said. "Our major focus continues
to be access [for boaters].
Without that, it will be hard for
people to accept anything else."
Park Superintendent Dan
Kimball has said the proposals
strive to balance the park's charge
to protect marine resources under
pressure from increasing boat
traffic, with ensuring public
enjoyment of the national park.
"The park staff certainly has
been doing what they can to
reach out to organized stakehold-
ers," Trice said. "They are listen-
ing. We understand the challenge
of finding the right mix."
The park's four alternatives
run the gamut from changing
nothing (Alternative 1) to
restricting boating in many shal-
low areas (Alternative 4).
After Monday's meeting in
Key Largo, additional public
comment sessions are planned
Tuesday at the Campbell
Agricultural Center in
Homestead; Wednesday in
Naples; and Thursday at the
IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame in

Wigington seeks

planning changes


She wants vote to
replace holdovers
Windle, Cameron
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


It's no secret Monroe County
Commissioner Kim Wigington
wants to appoint her own repre-
sentative to the county's Planning
Commission.
On Wednesday, she hopes to
get enough support to make that
happen.
County law allows sitting
commissioners to appoint or
reappoint members to that board
months before elections that
could potentially oust their spon-
sor from office.
Such is the case with former
county commissioners Sonny
McCoy and Dixie Spehar, who
reappointed Donna Windle and
Jim Cameron, respectively, to the
planning board prior to leaving
office. Both county commission-
ers were defeated in the August
Republican primary, Spehar by
Wigington and McCoy by Carlos
Rojas.
Wigington has proposed a res-
olution that would call for a sepa-
rate vote to remove at
Wigington or Carruthers' discre-
tion their current representa-
tive on the Planning Commission.
Wigington said she plans to
appoint Big Pine resident and for-
mer longtime Planning Commis-
sioner Denise Werling to the.
board.
"Up until 2005 [Werling] was
a commissioner, and I was always
very impressed with her intelli-
gence, as well as her being able to
be objective and what I consider
middle of the road," Wigington
said. "We're going to be working
through our [comprehensive]
plan and she brings to the table
not only a thorough knowledge of
the comp plan, but experience."
Carruthers, meanwhile, said
she's considering several candi-
dates but has no immediate plans
to name a replacement.
"In terms of timing of whether
the planning commissioners'
terms should serve concurrently
with the BOCC commissioner, I
think there's some logic to that,"
Carruthers said, "but I wouldn't
want to, in my first month, have
to elect a Dlanninn commissioner.


It takes a little time to get a lay of
the land."
Wigington said she disagrees
with a law that prevents new
commissioners from selecting a
like-minded representative on the
Planning Commission and allows
planning commissioners to serve
in perpetuity. .
"Planning commissioners can
serve for life and I never think
that's a good move," she said.
Randy. Wall represents
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy on
the Planning Commission, while
John Marston was appointed by
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro. Mayor George
Neugent's appointee is Jeb Hale.
"I believe planning commis-
sioners are an extension of the
county commissioner who
appoints them and it should take
place when the county commis-
sioner takes his or her seat,"
Neugent said. During his tenure
on the commission, Neugent has
had his Planning Commission
appointments shot down.
In 2005, Neugent tapped
Wigington to serve on the
Planning Commission. But then-
Commissioners Spehar and
McCoy, along with Murray
Nelson, bucked a trend of
approving fellow commission
appointments and voted in. .
Neugent later nominated Big
Pine Key resident Sherry
Phillips, who was also rejected
b,y the three-vote coalition.
Spehar then named her own nom-
inee, Key West attorney Michelle
Cates, who was voted onto the
commission.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro said he'll listen to what
fellow commissioners have to
say, but he's not in favor of
changing the law.
"I don't know why we're
changing it now," he said. "I don't
care who's on there as long as
they're good people and they're
conscientious about their job."
A similar ordinance proposed
by Marathon Mayor Mike
Cinque was shot down by the
City Council. The sentiment was
there would be excessive
turnover and that the office
would become too political.
The County Commission
meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West.

City to manage TIF projects


Gibson says
oversight
was lacking
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The crowd cheered Tuesday
night after the Key West City
Commission unanimously
approved( .Tax Increment Fund
money to rehab Bahama Village
landmarks Cornish Memorial
AME Zion Church and Bethel
AME Church.
But then, as Tuesday's vote on
a similar allocation for the
Masonic Lodge came up,
Commissioner Barry Gibson
raised a question about oversight.
He noted there is no language in
any of. the relevant documents
regarding money management.
All of a sudden, the mood of
the crowd turned. Eyebrows


arched and the two dozen
Bahama Village residents, most
affiliated with one of the three
organizations up for funding,
began to whisper.
Gibson later told the Keynoter,
"Somebody has to manage the
contractors. I'm not sure the
church elders are construction
managers."
One of the projects, $417,000
for a three-phase renovation of
Cornish Memorial AME Zion
Church on Whitehead Street in
Key West's Bahama Village,
includes everything from repairs
to the bell tower and turrets, new
siding, refurbished stain glass and
Americans with Disabilities Act
improvements.
"I don't think that taxpayer
money should be wasted,"
Gibson said. "This is looking out
for the church and looking out for
the TIF fund. Oversight is so


important."
In the commission chambers
on Tuesday, Pastor James
Thomton from Cornish told the
commission that he would over-
see the project. That didn't seem
to sway a majority on the dais.


Oversight
would
probably fall
to Assistant
City Manager
Mark Finigan.


. After some discussion,
Commissioner Teri Johnston ulti-
mately directed city staff to act in
an oversight capacity for how the
money is used.
City Manager Jim Scholl


looked slightly puzzled, now
asked to oversee three construc-
tion projects with a total budget
of $539,000 the work at
Cornish as well as $62,000 worth
of improvements at Bethel AME,
223 Truman Ave., and $60,000 in
improvements at the Masonic
Lodge at 328 Truman.
Gibson said the oversight
would probably fall to Assistant
City Manager Mark Finigan, who
oversees city finances, among
other things.
"It's not his job," Gibson said.
"They're busy in there. All we're
doing is giving more work to staff
and it's a problem." But "there's
just not a whole lot of regulations
attached to this money."
The so-called TIF money is a
special property .tax fund that can
be used only for redevelopment
projects in Bahama Village.
Before the approvals, there
was $610,000 in the fund, rolled
over from the previous fiscal year.

Waterfront plans reviewed


Land Trust chief
-says construction
may begin in '11
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Two groups proposing devel-
opments at the 33-acre Truman
Waterfront delivered a clear mes-
sage at a community forum host-
ed by Last Stand Wednesday
night: They're ready to move
forward and just need the city to
try to. keep up.
"We have funding available to
us," Norman Jean Sawyer, the
executive director of the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust,
told the packed' crowd at the
Florida 'Keys Eco-Discovery
Center at the waterfront.
The Land Trust plans to build,
using local contractors, 86 one-
and two-bedroom apartments,
along with retail space, a library,
bocce ball courts, computer
rooms and even a Bahamian cul-
tural museum on 6.6 acres.
Sawyer pegged the cost at
between $15 million and $20
million, to be' funded with tax
credits.
"We have a huge connection
to a national body that has access
to many different opportunities
for us to make this a successful
project for the city of Key West,"
she said, talking about her serv-
ice as secretary of the National
Community Land Trust
Network.
She said construction could
start by the fall of 2011 and be
done by fall 2012 if the group
finalizes a lease agreement with
the city.
The City Commission was
expected to vote on the long-
awaited lease at its April 7 meet-
ing, but the item was removed
from the agenda at the behest of
Commissioner Dan Kolhage,
who couldn't attend the meeting.
"It's a big project for the
region and the country," she said.
"We're part of the movement
around the country to allow resi-
dents to be a part of development
in their community. It will help
give them the opportunity to help
the government and be a partner
instead of just always coming
with their hand out."
Eduardo "Bookie" Henriquez,
representing the Florida Keys
Assisted Care Coalition, gave an
update on his group's proposed


development of 135 assisted and
independent living units on four
acres of the waterfront.
The coalition has a lease
with the city for 99 years at the
rate of $1 per year, the same
deal the Land Trust is trying to
get, but now the coalition needs
a zoning amendment to move
forward.
Part of the proposed con-
struction falls into an area
zoned as park space, so a land-
use plan amendment is
required. The city's Planning
Department is currently revis-
ing the land plan, but that
process is expected to take
between 12 to 18 months.
Other than that, Henriquez
said his group is ready to go and
just waiting on the city. He also
said hat once the facility is up
and running, preference would
be given to applicants with a
background in the Keys.
"They've paid their fair
share of taxes, they've patron-
ized local businesses and
they've raised their families
here," he said. Henriquez, a for-
mer schools superintendent in
Monroe County, reminded
everyone the coalition's motto:

Keys briefs


College board
to vote on name

The Florida Keys Com-
munity College board is sched-
uled to meet in special session
today at 10:30 a.m. to vote on a
new name for the school. -
Front-runners are Florida
Keys College and College of
the Florida Keys. College
President Jill Landesberg-
Boyle, who favors College of
the Florida Keys, says, "This is
something that will make us
different."
The name change is part of a
focused rebranding effort
designed to drop the stigma
attached to the phrase "commu-
nity college."
The name Southernmost
College was an early contender
but has since fallen by the way-
side.
Today's meeting is at the
board's meeting room on the
Stock Island campus.


"So that all of us can remain in
this community as we age."
Plans calls for 40 assisted
living units, each around 400
square feet and renting for
. $1,000 to $4,900 monthly. Also,
95 larger independent living
units of 1,200 square feet would
be sold for prices ranging from
$200,000 to $1.5 million. The
total project cost is estimated at
$50 million.

Talks reopen on piping sewage to Key Largo


Wastewater board.
resumes talks
with Islamorada
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The possibility of saving resi-
dents millions of dollars was too
big for officials of the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District to
ignore.
Tuesday, the district board
voted to revisit the possibility of
treating wastewater piped from
Islamorada to the district's treat-
ment plant in Key Largo. "
"I believe that the times and


the economies are different," said
board Chairwoman Susan
Hammaker of the controversial
proposal that first surfaced more
than two years ago.
The board voted on two writ-
ten requests from the Islamorada
Village Council.
The board voted 4-1, Charles
Brooks dissenting, to acknowl-
edge that the district board mem-
bers want to reopen the- pipeline
discussion with Islamorada.
The board then voted 3-2, with
Brooks and Norman Higgins dis-
senting, to approve the: concept of
the Key Largo. district paying an
"appropriate" share of the cost of

a feasibility study by an inde-
pendent engineer.
Brooks opposes the pipeline
concept and Higgins said he did-
n't think Key Largo should have
to pay for the study. Hammaker
and board members Andrew
Tobin and Robert Majeska said
spending a small amount of
.money now could save millions
in hookup costs for. Upper Keys
residents.
"We've projected enormous
savings in Islamorada,", said
Tobin, who has urged the council
to bring the issue back to the dis-
trict board.
Majeska said adding
Islamorada property owners as
customers of the Key Largo treat-
ment plant could reduce Key
Largo property owners' connec-
tion charges by more than $600,
or a total of $9 million.
"If Key Largo is going to


receive a benefit, then Key Largo
should fork over some dough" for
the study,-Hammaker said.
But all board. members said
they would have to see how much
money Key Largo would be
required to contribute -before
authorizing their part in the study.
Islamorada Village Manager
Ken Fields said the village spent
$150,000 for a Key Largo pipeline
feasibility study two years ago.
That study said a pipeline would-
n't be cost-effective.
Some, most notably
Councilman Dave Boemer, have
said the data used in the study
was flawed and produced skewed
results. However, Fields said cur-
rent wastewater engineering firm
Hazen and Sawyer recently
reviewed the study and said the
data was sound.
At the meeting, Fields told the
board that an engineering firm


recently gave an informal price of
$86,000 to redo the feasibility
study. That firm, he said, is cur.
rently under contract to both
Islamorada and Key Largo and
could begin work on a study
quickly.
In contrast, to the board's
actions, several people who
spoke at the meeting said the
board should concern itself only
with sewer customers in Key
Largo, and that Islamorada's
track record with wastewater
decisions and constructing infra-
structure is lacking.
That wasn't disputed by for-
mer Islamorada Councilman
Mike Forster, who said the
Islamorada council has "been
dysfunctional for a long .time"
and that he didn't want Key
Largo to have to pay foranother
study after Islamorada abandoned
the pipeline option two years ago.


Medical transport task force?

Force comprising 16 Keys med-
ical or emergency professionals
and five members of the public to
gauge service levels throughout
the county.
"What I'm asking for is for the
people who provide medical
transport and the medical person-
nel in the county itself to step
back and look back at what our
service levels are," she said. The
commission is expected to con-
sider the item at its Wednesday
meeting in Key West.
Carruthers is adamant the dis-
cussion doesn't begin and end


with TraumaStar, a much-debated
air ambulance, service provided
jointly by the county and Sheriff's
Office. She also wants ground
service evaluated and is con-
cerned about how long Upper
Keys residents will continue
receiving free air ambulance serv-
ice from Miami-Dade County.
Voters approved a referendum
in November establishing a tax to
fund TraumaStar, .but the 10
northernmost voting precincts
didn't support it.
And TraumaStar narrowly
escaped open competition in
January when the County Com-
mission voted not to seek new
proposals for the service. The
vote was 3-2 with Carruthers and
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
dissenting.
Mayor George Neugent and
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro
say they won't support forming a
task force.
"I'm not a big fan of commit-
tees; they seem to take on a life of
their own," Neugent said. "We're
elected to be the representatives
and we have staff that can pro-
vide all that information. Even if
you were going to put together a
committee, to me, more than five
people is insanity."
"We've been hashing this out
for how long?" Di Gennaro said.
"We've done enough with this
and TraumaStar is our emergency
medical helicopter."

A second Field of Dreams?


Key West park
could be like
Marathon site
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Could Key West be getting
its own Field of Dreams like
the Marathon Rotary
Children's Park at U.S. 1 and
75th Street?
With all the talk of fixing up
Higgs Beach, it looks like
Astro City Park, which is
across the street from the beach
and part of the same county-
owned parcel, is getting some
attention.
A community group work-
ing to fix up Higgs Beach, led
by Monroe County Com-
missioner Heather Carruthers
and Key West City Com-
missioner Teri Johnston,


includes a subcommittee look-
ing into options for Astro City
Park.
Eric Holowacz, executive
director of The Studios of Key
West, is tackling that project
and wants to bring in Leathers
and Associates, an Ithaca,
N.Y.,-based playground design
firm specializing in kid-
designed, community-funded
projects.
Leathers and Associates
worked with the Marathon
Rotary Club, which built the
Field of Dreams playground
over a five-day period in 2001.
Hundreds of volunteers
donated 2,630 shifts and nearly
$120,000 in supplies to con-
struct the park, which includes
a play pirate ship, garden maze
and more.
"Everybody was a kid at one
time," Holowacz said. "We're


trying to give them something
special in a play area. I have
three daughters and we use
[Astro City Park] a couple of
times a week. It could be bet-
ter. Everyone I've mentioned
this to says yes immediately."
Other improvements at
Higgs Beach include improved
signage, a new crosswalk,
rotating patrols performed by
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, fresh paint and bath-
room windows. A recycling
program and lights for the ten-
nis courts are in the works.
The Studios of Key West is
hosting a presentation Tuesday
on the potential playground,
along with a brainstorming ses-
sion for residents. The discus-
sion will be from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
at The Studios, 600 White St.,
For more information, call
296-0458 or check out

This is the Marathon park that was built by residents, over five
days. A similar effort is starting in Key West with a Tuesday
brainstorming session.

Walgreens, Faro Blanco plans slow down


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City-Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.
Agenda items include:
Updates on the status of a
proposed Walgreeris at 53rd Street
and U.S. 1 and the Faro Blanco
Resort and Yacht Club redevelop-
ment near mile marker 48.
In a letter to. the council,
Planning Director George Garrett
says Walgreens still plans to build
Sa second Marathon store at the
old Gary's.Pub & Billiards loca-
tion, but "will probably request a
time extension in order to do so


because of the current financial
downturn."
The council granted
Walgreens "a conditional use in
August last year, but Garrett says
the company has yet to produce
any significant engineering or
construction, documents for the.
store. The approval can be
extended for an additional year.
Walgreens has a 50-year
ground lease with local Realtor
Brian Schmitt, meaning it would
own the building, and lease the
property. The lease for the
planned 14,500-square-foot store
is for 25 years, with a 25-year
renewal option.


Meanwhile, Garrett reports
slow progress on the long-
delayed Spottswood Companies'
Faro Blanco resort redevelop-
ment. He said the project team
indicated March 11 that after
years of legal disputes and
obtaining permits, they are pre-
pared to submit detailed project
proposals for a new marina.
Spottswood secured permits
from-both the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers ard state he Department


of Environmental Protection to
install roughly 200 boat slips.
Spottswood President Robert
Spottswood told the Keynoter pre-
viously that the 88-room upland
redevelopment will be put on hold
due to the economy.
+ Approval of a previously
approved two-year contract
extension for City Manager
Clyde Burnett.
Bumett was hired last April 29
but requested a multi-year deal


from the council in February. The
council gave Burnett a ringing
endorsement at his 180-day eval-
uation, so the hew deal was not
surprising.
Due to the economy, no
changes will be made to his
salary over the life of the new
contract. He was hired at $90,000
per year and received a raise to
$100,000 after the positive evalu-
ation.

Gas-tax split up for vote Wednesday


Commission
would give less
to municipalities
:By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Keys municipalities none too
pleased about losing a large pot
of gas tax revenue to Monroe
County may at least get to keep a
smaller amount.
On Wednesday, the County
Commission will consider
extending agreements with Key
West, Marathon, Key Colony
Beach, Layton and Islamorada to
share a percentage of a 6-cent
local-option gas tax.
But the commission will defer
any action on a controversial pro-
posed 5-cent increase to that gas.
tax until May.
Last month, the commission
voted 4-1 to stop sharing 2 cents
of the 6-cent gas tax, collected by
the county and divvied up among
the county, Marathon, Islamorada,
Key -Colony. Beach and Layton
according to an interlocal agree-
ment. Each penny generates about
a quarter million dollars a year.
County Public Works


Department figures from the
2008 fiscal year show the county
collected $1.99 million from the
tax for itself and doled out
$491,466 to the municipalities:
$287,099 for Marathon,
$154,345 fort Islamorada,
$38,149 for Key Colony Beach
and $11,873 to Layton.
Islamorada has budgeted to
receive $160,000 in gas tax
money in 2009, while Marathon
has budgeted to 'receive
$290,000. The agreements end in
September.
A 1990 agreement to share the
tax with Key West (35 percent),
Key Colony (2 percent) and
Layton (1 percent) went
unchanged until Marathon and
Islamorada incorporated in the
late 1990s.
In 2004, the county reached
agreements to share $273,733 per
year with Marathon, and
$294,500 per year with
Islamorada. The agreements with
the municipalities are based on
lane miles.
County documents say the
county maintains 389 road miles

Utility schedules
aerial inspections

Keys Energy Services has
planned its annual helicopter-
based inspections and mainte-
nance of its main transmission
line for this coming week.
From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., a heli-
copter crew will hover above the
power lines, checking for any
damage. Inspections from Key
West to Big Coppitt Key are
planned for Tuesday, Big Coppitt


to Big Pine Key on Wednesday
and Big Pine Key to Marathon on
Thursday.
Should aerial repairs to the
transmission line be required,
they will be done April 17 and 18.
-Keys Energy customers
should be aware of the possibility-
of dust and sand that may be dis-
persed due to the downward
thrust from the helicopter. And
customers with property near
U.S. 1 should place garbage cans,
lawn furniture and other light-
weight objects indoors.

The commission has put off
voting on two gas-tax items the
one adding 5 cents to the 6-cent
tax and a ninth-cent local-option
motor and special fuel tax until
its regular meeting in May.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said those increases will
need to be approved for the
municipalities to recoup lost con-
stitutional tax revenue.
"They still 'need at least some
of the additional cents of the pro-


posed extra 5 cents. [proposed
tax] to recoup to the amount of
the constitutional tax they were
getting," Hutton said in an e-mail
to the Keynoter.
In Marathon, Mayor Mike
Cinque and Vice. Mayor Don
Vasil have said they feel the
County Commission took away
gas tax revenue in an attempt to
gain support for the proposed tax
increases.
Hutton says she's received lit-
tle feedback from an April 6
meeting to discuss other possibil-


ities for sharing the local-option
tax money.
"Only one of the municipal
representatives I met with [April
6] to address some other basis for
sharing has responded as to a re-
draft sent out. I may be pulling the
item off the agenda, or will at least
be asking to substitute a different
document if I get appropriate
feedback in time," Hutton said.
The County Commission
meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West.

County talks trash


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Looking to avoid a huge pub-
lic outcry, the Monroe County
Commission votes Wednesday on
extensions for four Keys trash
and recycling providers.
The contract renewals call for
stepped-up efforts to boost coup-
tywide recycling from 13 percent
today to 40 percent by 2014.
And contracts negotiated with
the haulers will generate higher
franchise fees to help fund recy-
cling campaigns, according to
one county commissioner famil-
iar with the talks that took place.
Monroe County's four solid
waste and recycling franchise
agreements expire Sept. 30. and
Administrator Roman Gastesi
made it clear in January he want-
ed to advertise the service rather
than renew existing agreements.
But a slew of Key Haven resi-
dents showed up in support of
keeping Waste Management in
the Lower Keys. And in
Marathon, City Manager Clyde
Burnett said his city, along with
Key Colony Beach and Layton,
were prepared to negotiate sepa-
rately with Middle Keys provider
Marathon Garbage. Service

should the county elect to put
trash contracts out to bid.
Marathon briefly took over its
garbage hauling after incorpora-
tion in 1999. However, that
proved a financial disaster, so the
county holds the Marathon
Garbage contract through an
interlocal agreement with the city.
Because of the January outcry,
the county has renegotiated con-
tracts with the existing providers
that will generate a significant
amount of extra revenue for the
county and keep the current
providers in place.
"I think this is one service we
get very few complaints about
and I'm happy to see everyone
walked away happy. We'll see
when we have the final con-
tracts," Commissioner Kim
Wigington said.
Annual county solid waste
fees are $29.2 per household and
have been since 1995. Final con-
tract agreements were not avail-
able Friday, but a minimal cost
increase to residents is expected.
Overall, the garbage contracts
pay the county a combined $5.88
million each year, but the renego-
tiated agreements are expected to

earn the county an additional
$178,000 annually. Here's the
breakdown on the contract
amounts:
$2.2 million for Waste
Management, which hauls out
trash in the unincorporated
Lower Keys.
+ $1.6 million for Marathon
Garbage.
+ $1.8 million for Keys
Sanitary in Key Largo and
$284,000 per year in Ocean Reef.
According to county docu-
ments, five-year renewals, in
addition to another optional five-
year renewal and diesel fuel sur-
charge, have been reached with
the companies with conditions
attached.

Af the Casa Marina Resort, you can get a room for just $199 a night, for a two-night stay.
General Manager Kevin Speidel says rates fell about 10-12 percent in the first three months of
this year, but that occupancy is up about 10 percent.


Hotels keep heads in beds


But the rates
dropped 18%
in February
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Julie Fondriest, owner of the
Key Lime Inn and five other
guesthouses in Key West, says
hoteliers had a major wake-up
call in January, when they would
normally be transitioning from
"summer" rates to winter rates.
That reality was that people
weren't booking rooms at hotels
in the Keys for the big months of
January, February, March and
April, when hotels build up 'the
cash reserves needed to keep them
going the rest of the year. Not at
the rates being offered anyway.
"I must have reset my prices 15
times, trying to find the right spot
where my phones would ring,"
Fondriest told the Keynoter this
week. "What I found for me this
year was $200 was the top ceiling
for what people would pay."
Last year at this time,
Fondriest was getting about $250
for rooms at most of her inns.
This matches up with the
',SmitiTi'AveResearch data main-
,tained by the Monroe County


Tourist Development Council.
That data shows that in
February, room rates fell 18.3
percent at hotels, motels and
guesthouses in the Florida. Keys
to an average rate of $194.76 a
night. And occupancy rates,
which had fallen off 5.3 percent
in January (compared to January
of 2008), rebounded.
In February, the number of
"heads in beds" was down just .6
percent compared to February of
2008. The tourists are happy to
come here they just don't want
to pay as much as they once did.
In March of 2008, the average
rate for a hotel room in the Keys
reached an all-time monthly-
average high of $258. According
to Smith Travel numbers, the
average $194 for a room in the
Keys in February of this year was
a return to where rates stood in
about 2004 and 2005, when the
average rates for those same
months were $181.44 and
$199.36, respectively.
An almost 20 percent cut in
rates is nothing to sneeze at. but
things could be worse. In Orlando
and Las Vegas, rooms are being
advertised for as low as $35 a
night: In Key West, the lowest
price for a room on Friday,


according to the travel Web site
www.kayak.com, was $149 at
the Days Inn on North Roosevelt
Boulevard.
But if you wanted to wait a
week, you could get an even bet-
ter deal: $119 at Travelodge
Suites for April 17.
Rooms aren't so much more
expensive at some of the most
high-end hotels in the Keys. The
Casa Marina Resort, for example,
now a Waldorf-Astoria Collection
hotel, is advertising rooms for
$199 a night for a two-night stay,
and throwing in a $50 credit for
guests to spend at the hotel on
food and drinks, merchandise, or
treatments at the spa.
The Smith Travel Research
numbers are compiled from
hotels owners who voluntarily
report their room rates and occu-
pancy by filling out forms every
month. The bed tax numbers are
perhaps a better indication of the
state of the industry, as the tax is
collected from every lodging
property in the Keys.
So far this fiscal year from
Oct. 1 through Feb. 28 bed tax
revenue for all properties in the
Keys was down 9.8 percent. In
Key West in February alone, bed
tax revenues were down 15 per-
cent, reflecting the lowered room
rates.

Noted writer at Voltaire


L'Attitudes Staff


Science fiction writer
Kathleen Ann Goonah will be at
Voltaire Books in Key West this
Saturday, April 11, at 3 p-.m. to
sign copies of her most recent
book, "In War Times."
Goonan, a
resident of
Tavernier
based the
book's main
character on
her father,
using his
World War II
memoirs.
GOONAN Thomas
Goonan was
trained in the operation of the
then-top-secret SCR 584, which
incorporated radar, the proximity
fuse and an early'computer.
The book begins on Dec. 6,
1945. The fictional character
Sam Dance, in the Army and
taking a course in Washington,
D.C., is handed mysterious plans
by Dr. Eliani Hadntz, a
Hungarian physicist "who has
opted out of the Manhattan
Project to create her own device
to change the warlike proclivities
of humanity," according to a
press release for the book.
Sam and his buddy Wink,
both musicians, have a brief
encounter with Charlie Parker
and Dizzy Gillespie in Harlem at
the birth of Modem Jazz
(Bebop), while learning about-
the cavity magnetron, radar, and
the SCR-584 at Aberdeen, Md.
The book follows Sam and
Wink through their creation of
the Hadntz Device, past the end
of the war, Sam's marriage to a
former government agent, the
birth of their children, and
through the 1960s, and the unex-
pected ramifications of the
device as it begins to function.
"In War Times" won the John
W. Campbell Memorial Award,
one of the top three awards in the
field of science fiction.
Goonan's previous novels
include "Queen City Jazz" (A
New York Times Notable Book),
"The Bones of Time" (Clarke
Award finalist), "Mississippi
Blues" (Darrell Lifetime
Achievement Award), "Crescent
City Rhapsody" (Nebula finalist)
and "Light Music" (Nebula. final-

Poet Frost is celebrated


L'Attitudes Staff


Admirers of the great
American poet Robert Frost can
celebrate his poetry April 15-19,
on the grounds of the Key West
cottage that was Frost's winter
retreat.
The 15th annual Robert Frost
Poetry Festival features poetry
and haiku workshops and read-
ings, art and film events, and the
announcement of the winners of
the Robert Frost Poetry Festival
international haiku and poetry
contests.
Timed to coincide with .
National Poetry Month, the festi-
val is headquartered at the Key
West Heritage House and Robert
Frost Cottage, at 410 Caroline
St.
Frost was born in San
Francisco in 1874, but moved
with his family to Massachusetts
when he was 11. He attended
Dartmouth College, and Harvard
University, but never earned a
degree. He held a number of dif-
ferent jobs, including teacher,
cobbler, and editor of his home-
town newspaper in Lawrence,
Mass.
Frost is best known for his"
poems about New England.
Frost's first poem was pub-
lished in a NIew York newspaper,
The Independent, in 1894. He
went on to write hundreds of
poems, many of them inspired
by his love for his Wife, Elinor
Miriam White, whom he married
in 1895.
In his later years, after the
death of his wife. Frost wintered
in Key West, staying in the cot-
tage of local preservationist
Jessie Porter from 1945 to 1960.
It was during the Key West years
that Frost was named the U.S.
poet laureate. He held that dis-
tinction iii 1958 and 1959.


The poet Robert Frost lived in Key West from 1945 to 1960, at
what is now the Key West Heritage House on Caroline Street.


Today, Porter's home and cot-
tage grounds are a National
Literary Landmark, open for
tours as the Key West Heritage
House. Visitors can view
mementos from the island's sea-
faring past and an ongoing exhi-
bition of art created in Key West
during the 1930s by federal
Works Progress Administration
artists.
Poetry and haiku workshops
are to be presented by Welsh
poet and Frost scholar Dr.
Michael Wyndham Thomas,
"Modem Haiku" editor Charles

'Reefer Madness'


ends this weekend


Last chance
to see Waterfront
production

L'Attitudes Staff

This weekend is your last
chance to see "Reefer
Madness: The Musical" at the
Waterfront Playhouse in Key
West.
The production, which
returned to the theater for a
second year, is a riff on the
1936 exploitation film, made
to try to scare kids away from
experimenting with drugs.
The musical is the brain-
child of Dan Studney and
Kevin Murphy, who wrote the
book, lyrics and music.
"Reefer Madness: The
Musical" was first performed
off-Broadway in 200-1.
Danny Weathers, the
Waterfront's artistic director,
directs "Reefer Madness" with
musical direction by Michael
Fauss and choreography by
Penny Leto. The entire pro-
duction is sponsored by Conch
Color.
"Reefer Madness" tells the
story of a group of clean-cut
kids who fall prey to the
"demon weed" when they are
sucked into a world of weed
freaks, orgies, hallucinations
and brownies. The raucously
silly tale is mixed with bril-
liant song and dance numbers


that will have your toes tap-
ping.
The cast includes David
Black, Denis Hyland, Mary
Falconer, Marc Crow, Kristen
Bussiere, Nulita Loder,
Michael Aaglan, Kristen
Wilson, Carolyn Cooper, Rhett
Kalman, Kyla Piscopink,
Leigh Pujado, Scott
Shambaugh and Phil Tabb.
The "Reefer Madness"
band includes Michael Fauss
(conductor/keyboards),
Georges Hemund (wood-
winds), Chris Burchard (elec-
tric guitar), Jim Wist (bass)
and Max Zemanovic (percus-
sion). 1
Audience Advisory:
"Reefer Madness" is a highly
stylized show that contains
adult humor, suggested vio-
lence, sexual situations, reli-
gious parody and simulated
marijuana use. It may prove
too shocking for the conserva-
tively minded.
Tickets for the April 11 and
12 performances of "Reefer
Madness" may be purchased
by calling the box office at
294-5015. or online at
www.waterfront
playhouse.org. Tickets for
April 11 are $35, with student
tickets (under age 25) at $20
with a student or college ID.
Tickets for closing night, April
12, are $40 and include a post-
performance party sponsored
by the Key West Players.

The music is a mix of classi-
cal, pop, gospel and jazz, and

. opens with. the two men and two
women on the deck of a Spanish
ship, headed for the New World


in the year 1492. They are Jews,
part of the Jewish diaspora leav-
.ing Spain for the Americas.

voice and choreography for the
performances with the Key West

ies in Boston at the Longy
School of Music. For the last
few years, Monroe has been
coming to Key West in the sum-
mer with the Key West
Symphony's Young Opera Artist

Conch Republic Independence Celebration


Break-out
nation to party
like it's 1982
"Dedicated to the fundamen-
tally American spirit of a people
unafraid to stand up to 'govern-
ment gone mad with power' that
embodied the founding of the
Conch Republic in 1982. As the
world's first fifth world nation,
a sovereign state of mind seek-
ing only to bring more humor,
warmth, and respect to a world
in sore need of all three, the
Conch Republic remains the
country who seceded where oth-
ers failed.",
L'Attitudes Staff

The Conch Republic's 10--
day birthday party begins on
Friday, April 17, and runs
through Sunday, April 26, with
activities ranging from a "drag"
-race for female impersonators to
a sea battle between tall ships
off Key West..
The 27th annual Conch
Republic Independence
Celebration commemorates the


Florida Keys' secession from
the United States following a
1982 U.S. Border Patrol block-
ade that stopped traffic coming
into the Keys at Florida City.
In protest, local officials
staged the secession, proclaim-
ing the independence of the -
Conch Republic ,declaring war
on the mother country, pelting
federal agents with stale Cuban
bread and then after 60 sec-
onds surrendering and
demanding $1 billion in foreign
aid.
All these years later and blue
Conch Republic flags can be
seen everywhere in Key West
and up the Keys.
Highlights of the celebration
include the Great Conch
Republic Drag Race at 1 p.m.
on Saturday, April 18, where
female impersonators, decked
out in high heels and big hair,
run down Duval Street to the
cheers of spectators.
The event begins when the
"pits" along the 700 block of
Duval open for public viewing.
Racers proceed through time tri-
als and elimination heats to the
hard-fought finals while try-
ing to avoid crashes, broken

scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday,
April 24, in the waters of the
Key West Bight, at the bottom


of William Street. Weapons will

New pastor finds


new covenant in Key West


Schenk arrives
just in time
for Easter
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Larry Schenk, the new pastor
at Peace Covenant Presbyterian
Church in Key West, is settling
into his new Key West digs at
one of the most important times
on the Christian calendar -
Easter.
Schenk moved here from
Chattanooga just six weeks ago
after he was selected by a
search committee at Peace
Covenant to serve as the new
pastor. He says the transition
from the Bible Belt to the
Southernmost City is welcome
- and is indicative of the mes-
sage behind Easter.
"I really felt like coming to
Key West was going to be very
different," Schenk says. He
described a "live-and-let-live
kind of thing" saying, "That's
attractive. There's a more
receptive attitude."
In Chattanooga, he served 16
years at one church and seven at
another, and had more tradition-
al congregations.. "It gets tire-
some at times to constantly
defend what you believe," he
says.
Schenk, 52, -was born in
Cleveland but moved with his
parents to Winter Park when he
was nine months old. He gradu-
ated from Winter Park High
School in 1974.
From there, Schenk went to
college at Auburn University in
Alabama and then attended the
Columbia Theological
Seminary in Atlanta, where he
received a degree as a doctor of
ministry.
Schenk and his wife Karen,
who is still in Chattanooga,
have three grown children,
Meghan, Brett and Ashley.
Schenk has some plans form-
ing to expand Peace Covenant
and get the congregation,

on season, more involved in the

Softball squad
to face power
Monsignor Pace
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Just when it appeared that
the Key West High School
softball team would lose its
second consecutive game to
Monsignor Pace, the Conchs
stunned the Spartans with a
six-run seventh inning and an
8-5 victory Wednesday after-
noon in Opa-locka.
The victory gave the
Conchs the top seed in the
District 16-4A tournament that
begins April 21 at Pace.


On Tuesday at the Back
Yard, it had been the Conchs
who were stunned when visit-
ing Pace scored four runs in the
seventh for a 7-5 victory that
left the teams tied for first
place in District 16-4A. It was
the Conchs' first district loss
and it necessitated the
Wednesday game.
"I expected we would win
on Tuesday but I didn't expect
we'd win on Wednesday," said
coach Steve Wells, whose team
improved to 11-9 overall and

Diamond Dolphins return


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Surging Marathon High
School softball and baseball
teams return from Spring Break
this week looking to continue
their late-seasonwinning ways.
Both teams have overcome
sluggish beginnings and played
well the past month.
The -softball team started out
2-7 against a difficult slate of
opponents, but has reeled off
eight wins in its past 11 games to
even their record at 10-10.
Marathon beat Palmer Trinity
School 8-3 in their final game
before the break behind the solid
pitching of Vanessa Sardina and


Megan Gardner. Coach Andrea
Murphy says improved defense
and timely hitting has helped the
team climb out of its early-season
slump.
The Dolphins will look to get
above the .500 mark for the first
time this year when they host
Key West High School Tuesday
at 6 p.m.
The Dglphins' baseball team,
meanwhile, has won five out of
its last 10 games. Coach Luis
Leal said it could easily be seven
if not for squandered late-inning
leads against Lenoir City High
School out of Tennessee and
Spanish River High School from


Boca Raton.
The baseball squad also
defeated the Falcons, 6-2, in its
final game before the break.
They're now 5-10 after an 0-5
start.
The Dolphins' offense has
improved overall, but sophomore
Doniel Esquirol has been particu-
larly hot of late. Esquirol had
three hits, scored two runs and
knocked in another against the
Falcons.
Senior Toby Eigner overpow-
ered Palmer most.of the day in a
complete game effort.
Marathon resumes play with a
Tuesday rematch against Palmer
in Miami at 4 p.m.


Brossard puts school first


FINS/ From 30

weekend tournaments.
Brossard is ranked 31st in the
state in the under-16 age group,
with a 52-38 overall record.
Bull says Brossard has been
an integral part of the team
despite the fact players of her
caliber often forgo prep tennis in
favor of USTA .events. He said
Brossard's family even work her
USTA schedule around the
team's.
"Her being there is a tremen-
dous asset on. and off the court.
She leads by example and shows
the other inexperienced: girls
how to be mentally tough and
prepare to become a better play-
er," Bull said.
Brossard's proven to be head
and shoulders above any Keys
competition this year, too. She's'


defeated Key West No. 1 Gabby
Scammacca 8-1 and Coral
Shores No: 1 Allison Rhyne
twice, 8-1 and 8-0.
Farello, the Dolphins' No. 2,
brings a 6-6 singles record and
8-3 doubles record into the dis-
trict tournament. Bull said
Farello has been solid all year
against stiff competition.
"We've been working on dif-
ferent parts of her game. When
she's on, no one can beat her.
It's just making sure she can be
consistent," he said.
The Dolphins' No. 3, 4, and 5
players have been solid all sea-
son. Kelsey Wonderlin,
Michelle Bellevue and
Michaelle Rose Bellevue have
all posted 11-2 singles records
and give the Dolphins a chance
to win any match. J

least two points, if not all three,

Hurricane left-hander
LeDarius Sanders baffled the

The Canes scored the win-
ning.xun on a close play at the

Conchs back at .500 after 7-4 victory


Baseball team
stops Seminole
in Orlando
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Held hitless the first four
innings and facing another


Spring Break defeat, the Key
West High School baseball
team came up with two big
rallies, including one for four
runs in the top of the ninth,
and defeated Seminole High,
7-4, Wednesday afternoon in
Sanford.
It was the third game in the


Orlando area in three days for
the Conchs they lost
Monday night at Lake
Brantley, 3-2, and Tuesday
night at Winter Springs, 7-1 -
who pulled back above .500
with an 11-10 record. It was
also their first extra-inning
game of the season.
In the ninth, after the
Conchs had taken a 4-3 lead
on a two-out RBI single by
Michael Arencibia, first base-
man Nolan Thomas hit a three-
run homer over the right-field


fence. It was Thomas' second
home run in two games.
Seminole came back with a
home run in its ninth against
winning pitcher Frankie
Ratcliff, who struck out four
in three innings of relief.
Key West, which hadn't
scored in 11 consecutive
innings, broke through for
three runs in the fifth to take a
3-1 lead. Ratcliff and Thomas
each drove in one with a sin-
gle, and a wild throw by the-
catcher allowed the third run.


Seminole came back in its
fifth against P.J. Arencibia -
who allowed three runs and
four hits and six innings to
tie the game, 3-3. The next
three innings were scoreless as
Ratcliff dueled Seminole
reliever Cody Tilson.
The Conchs will play
District 16-4A opponent St.
Brendan at 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday in Miami and
again at 7 p.m. Friday at Rex
Weech Field.

Conchs seeded first


KEY WEST / From 30

the field for the seventh, and
with Wells thinking, "We're
out of gas," the outlook
seemed bleak.
But Madison Disson,
Natalie Dudley and Sarah
Rodriguez started the rally
with singles. Ceci Cervantes
scored them with a double to
make it 5-5. Kendall Galvan
drove in Cervantes with a
triple to put Key West ahead,
and two more runs would score
on singles by Kayla Reams and
Brianna Masiello.
Pace tried to come back in
its seventh against freshman
pitcher Rachel Quad the way it
had Tuesday. But after allow-
ing two hits ("Oh, it's going to
happen again," Wells thought
in the dugout), Quad got the
final two outs and the team


happily headed for a barbecue
place in Florida City.
Galvan, who also had two
doubles, forgot to bring her
uniform and had to wear the
much larger-sized uniform of
teammate Lauren Wells. "I'll
wear it if I have to tie it with
rope," she had said.
In Tuesday's game,. the
Conchs trailed 3-0 before scor-
ing three runs in the fifth and
two in the sixth. Quad got the
first batter in the seventh, but
the Spartans wearing black
and with a red-and-gold cross
stitched on their shirts then
exploded for four runs on five
hits.
"You've got another game
to play, don't hang your
heads,"Wells said to his play-
ers after the Conchs were
retired in their seventh. And
they didn't.
