County bare-ly supports nude beach


Majority of
commissioners
show support
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Had it gone to a vote
Wednesday, there's a chance the
Monroe County Commission
would, have approved allowing
nudity on a portion of Higgs
Beach in Key West.
What began as a seemingly
harmless discussion about how
to use funding at the county-
owned property turned into a
debate on the merits of a cloth-


ing-optional beach. This came
after Sloan Bashinsky, who's
running for Key West mayor this
year and who in the past has run
for County Commission, spoke
about the economic boost such
beaches provide.
The commission proved
receptive to the idea and directed
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton to investigate state law
governing the issue.
"No one visiting us under-
stands why we are such prudes,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said, referring to European and
other destinations where public
nudity is commonplace.


"Come to the U.S., everyone
has to keep their clothes on. If
there are 75,000 of us and 3 mil-
lion tourists, why do we not have
a nudie beach?" she said.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro, who spent 30 years liv-
ing in Europe, said he agreed
with Murphy "100 percent."
"Why not explore this and
find out if there is a possibility?"
Di Gennaro asked. "I've been in
Europe and nude beaches are all
over the place and people don't
give it a second thought."
Commissioner Heather
Carruthers seemed in favor of
the idea, but not the Higgs Beach
location then under discussion.
Suggestions that nudity be


allowed on a portion of Higgs
Beach separated from the main
beach area by the West Martello
Tower didn't win immediate
supporters.
"You need to keep it separat-
ed from other families,"
Carruthers said.
Mayor George Neugent and
Commissioner Kim Wigington
are -opposed to a clothing-
optional beach.
"I'm not known for being a
prude, but you guys are on your
own," Neugent said.
Wigington said Bashinsky
was mistaken. when he said all
candidates for county commis-
sion last year stated their sup-
port, at a Key West Business


Guild forum, for a nude county
beach.
"I was present at the first
Business Guild forum and I was
not asked 'the question. I will
continue to be the 'self-pro-
claimed prude' regarding coun-
ty-owned property or county
taxpayers' dollars supporting
nude recreation," Wigington
wrote in an e-mail to the
Keynoter. "There are private
establishments and guesthouses
in Key West that already allow
nudity."
There are several areas in the
Keys known for clothing-option-
al sunbathing, but they are off
the beaten track and not
endorsed by local governments.

SCHOOLS / From 1

Dick and at least two other
members said they will ask,
when they meet Tuesday, that
investigators who are probing
spending by a former depart-
ment head .also look into spend-
ing by vocational program chief
Mark Hooper, who spent $504 at
the Orlando conference.
According to district finan-
cial records, Hooper has been
reimbursed more than $20,000
in travel-related expenses .since
July 2006. He also has charged
about $18,500 in travel expenses
on a School District credit card.
So far, both the School
District attorney investigating
improper spending by school
administrators and the State
Attorney's Office have said they
have not investigated purchases
made by Hooper.
But Dick said records
released this week by the dis-
trict's finance office raise seri-
ous questions.
"To me, this.one needs a thor-
ough and complete investiga-
tion," Dick said.
Hooper didn't return phone
calls for comment Thursday and
Friday.
SDick said he is most, con-
cerned with the amount of trav-
eling Hooper does. Records
show Hooper sometimes has
traveled to three locations per
month.
"He's one of the worst travel-
ers in the district," Dick said.
Board member Steve
Pribramsky said he has repeated-
ly raised questions to school
finance staff about Hooper's
travel and spending the past few
years.
He also questioned thousands
of dollars in reimbursements to
Hooper for construction of a
Habitat. for Humanity home
being built by Marathon High
School students as part of a
vocational program.
Pribramsky said most of the
money for programs Hooper
overseas comes from federal and
state grants, although the exact
amounts are difficult to deter-
mine.
"I could not find Mark
Hooper on the salary schedule...
[his salary]. was spread across
three different departments. I
could never find his budget,"


Pribramsky said.
"This is exactly the kind of
problems that I had with [the
administration's] cost account-
ing. It was constantly a shell
game. You could never follow
the money."
Hooper,was one of about six
School District employees who
Key West travel agent Donna
Golan said sometimes bought
refundable airline tickets to trav-
el to conferences outside the
county.
State Attorney Dennis Ward
and School District attorney
Richard Collins had both said
their offices were checking
whether schools employees
exchanged refundable tickets for
cash or used them for personal
trips.
That-. travel angle is an expan-
sion of the current main focus of'
the investigation, which centers
on possible illegal spending by
former Adult. Education
Coordinator Monique Acevedo.
She was a program coordinator
along with Hooper in the Adult
and Career Education
Department.
- Finance records for the past
three school years show
Acevedo's school-issued credit
card was used to buy tens of
thousands of dollars in purchas-
es seemingly unrelated to school
work, such as DVDs, clothing,
furniture, groceries and other
items.
Some of those purchases also
match 12 expenditures listed in
the campaign reports of
Acevedo's husband,
Superintendent Randy Acevedo,
filed during his 2008 re-election
campaign.
Investigators are also looking
at money missing from Key
West High School. fundraisers
Monique Acevedo reportedly
organized, as well $100,000 in
missing tuition fees for adult
education classes she oversaw.
School Board Chairman
Andy Griffiths said he would
vote with Dick to have the
board's investigator and yet-to-
be-hired independent attorney
investigate Hooper's spending.
"Let's get some questions
answered," Griffiths said. "If we
spend a lot of money and we
find out he's squeaky clean, then
shame on us. How can you go
wrong on that?"

'Looking into irregularities


HENDRICK / From 1

Sulliv,an- sharply criticized
the six-member prosecution
team for failing to disclose that
witness interview notes
showed discrepancies in the
testimony of the prime witness
in the Stevens case. He named
a special prosecutor to look
into the federal attorneys' con-
duct.
Hendrick, convicted of con-
spiracy, obstruction of justice
and witness tampering involv-
ing a bribe paid to then-County
Commissioner Jack London in
1997, was paying attention.
"We will be asking the attor-
ney general and potentially the
special prosecutor to look into
some irregularities that
occurred in the prosecution of
[Hendrick's] case," Hendrick,
61, said Friday. "We have mat-
ters that warrant looking into."
Morris, deputy director of


the U.S. Justice Department's
Public Integrity Section, was
the lead prosecutor against
both Stevens and Hendrick.
While Morris has a general-
ly successful string of prose-
cuting corruption cases, she
also ran into trouble from a
case four years ago in Texas.
A criminal-defense attorney
who was acquitted on money
laundering charges prosecuted
by Morris won a- $1,3 million
civil settlement, according to
news accounts. Alan Brown of
San Antonio successfully
argued that prosecutors in his
case relied extensively on
questionable testimony from a
former secretary who was
seeking a sentence reduction
for her boyfriend.
After Hendrick was convict-'
ed, he was placed on five years
of probation after spending
three weeks in federal custody
in Miami following his
February 2007 conviction.


When the federal jury found
him guilty, he was led out of
the federal courthouse in Key
West in handcuffs and shack-
les.
London, who pleaded guilty
to filing a false tax return for
not reporting the $29,000 bribe
as income, was a cooperative
witness for the prosecution but
died before Hendrick's trial.
Randy Hilliard, a middleman
who reportedly solicited the
bribe from developer Marvin
Rappaport, received immunity
for testifying for the prosecu-
tion. Rappaport was never
charged.
The FBI arrested London in
2004 as he boarded a plane at
Key West International
Airport. He was headed to
Ireland.
Hendrick said he has com-
pleted more than 40 percent of
his probation and his commu-
nity service hours.

A Utah fugitive shot twice by
law enforcement officers in

of assaulting law enforcement
officers and illegally possessing
eight firearms.
Larkin Baggett, 54, was shot
twice, in the face and buttocks,
as federal Environmental
Protection Agency agents, aided
by two Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies, attempted to
serve an arrest warrant on him at
the old Turnkey Marine.
According to the indictment
returned in Miami, Baggett used
a .308 caliber semi-automatic
rifle to threaten the officers as
they attempted to serve the war-
rant.

Keys Opinion


District jobs surely

are on chopping block
The front-page headline in Wednesday's Keynoter read:
"Board expects firings." /
Some readers felt that was premature,/! since investigations
into alleged abuse of School District purchase cards and miss-
ing money are still ongoing.
Others sent letters blaming the School Board for not catching
this whole financial mess earlier.
First things first.
At least two members of the board, John Dick and Steve
Pribramsky, have been raising questions about school spend-
ing, administrative salaries, supplements and opaque budget
transfers since they were-elected.
Until recently, both were frequently on the losing end of 3-2
votes, with board members Duncan Mathewson, Debra Walker
and Andy Griffiths voting to approve budget,amendments and
other reports presented by Superintendent Randy Acevedo.
It's safe to say that voting bloc has shifted, especially as more
and more revelations hit about questionable spending, lax over-
sight and a head-in-sand approach that ignores the need for
strategic spending cuts.
The headline on Wednesday's story dramatically signals a
tidal shift has occurred. And it's not pre-judging to say there
.will be positions eliminated over the course of the investigation
-and coming budget squeeze. .
But here's the rub.
Acevedo is the one who prepares the district budget. Because
he's elected not hired by the board he can ignore their direc-
tions as long as he has a majority of the board supporting him.
- When $1.6 million in supplemental pay to top administrators
became a huge black eye back in 2007, the superintendent
squared off with the board in a knockdown, drag-out fight. This
despite two critical audits about the practice, including one
-from the state Auditor General's Office.
Ironically,. the Auditor General's Office is back in the Keys
now with. a team of six examiners looking into district credit
card purchases and other spending irregularities.
As we already reported, an outside forensic auditor hired by
the School Board says more than $100,000 in cash collected
for adult cosmetology class fees could be missing. The super-
intendent's wife, Monique Acevedo, headed that- program

A.pattern of district credit card abuse appears to stretch back
several years,.which suggests the scope of this investigation is
growing. /
So is it pre-judging to assume there will be people fired? No.
In fact, if there aren't firings and criminal prosecutions as evi-
dence warrants then public officials are not doing their jobs.

Raising the bed tax drives this Michigan tourist away


EDITOR:
The Monroe County Commission is just
greedy. At a time when the economy is so
depressed, their solution is to raise bed taxes on
tourists.
One of the commissioners says he hasn't
talked to anyone who would not vacation in the
Keys because of the increased tax. He didn't
talk to me.
Last winter and the winter before, I spent a
month in the Lower Keys, rented a waterfront
home on Ramrod Key and easily spent $4,000


to $5,000, mostly in the Lower Keys, separate
from the rental cost of about $3,200. This was
in November.
This year, I'm boycotting Monroe County as
a protest to the tourist tax increase. Sorry,
Boondocks, Tiki Bar, Keys Realty, Chevron
Island and others.
A tax rollback was more in order, not an anti-
tourist increase. So I'll go elsewhere this year.

Volunteers help keep hospital running


EDITOR:
The week of April 19 to 25 is recognized as
National Volunteer Week, created in 1974 when
President Nixon signed an executive order to
establish the week as an annual celebration of
volunteering. Every year since, each U.S. presi-
dent, along with many governors, mayors and
other elected officials, have signed proclamations
promoting National Volunteer Week.
The dedicated Hospital Auxiliary volunteers
and adult volunteers at Lower Keys Medical
Center donate their time and talents in many
areas. Their valuable assistance helps support our
high standard of patient care, lightens the load on
our health-care professionals and brings comfort
and happiness to our patients and their families.
On a daily basis, our volunteers help deliver
papers in the morning, transport mail and flowers
to patient rooms, escort patients in wheelchairs to


different areas all over the hospital, staff the
information desk, assemble paperwork and pro-
vide a selection of books and magazines to read.
The Hospital Auxiliary also manages our
lobby gift shop, where a majority of profits go
toward its continuing Florida Keys Community
College Nursing Scholarship Fund. The auxiliary
also recently donated $15,000 to the college
Nursing Program to update its offices, reception
area, classroom and laboratory, and help build a
patient simulation laboratory.
I would like to take this time to say thank you
to all of our volunteers for their time and talent
that they donate each and every day.

Park proposals are still falling short


EDITOR:
More than six years ago, seven local citizens
with more than 200 years of boating experience
in Florida Bay starting focusing on a new gen-'
eral management plan that was being developed
for Everglades National Park. The team com-
prises Tad Burke, Charlie Causey, Jack Curlett,
Mike Ehlers, Dianne Harbaugh, Sandy Moret
and myself.
Recently, the park published four revised
preliminary alternatives for the management
plan for the public to comment on. This was.
after the first set of alternatives in 2007 was
rejected.
It is important to most everyone that park
management do more to protect resources and
user experiences after decades of neglect.
However, the new alternatives again do essen-
tially nothing, or they suggest improvements
with extreme access restrictions.
Their proposed pole-and-troll zones are huge
with essentially no access. Alternative 4 would
essentially make all of Florida Bay that is recre-
ated in a pole-and-troll-only zone.
In 2007, we crafted Alternative E -
Everglades for the educated for the park to con-
sider. We now have published Alternative E,
Version 2.5, for them to consider and for you to
consider supporting. We wish for more resource
protection, but not at the cost of access.
Analysis of a new seagrass study also indi-
cates that given the park's worst-case findings,


less than one 10th of 1 percent of Florida Bay is
prop scarred and most of that in waters less than
2 feet or along shorelines. We suggest idle
speed along shorelines and support pole-and-
troll zones on the crowns of flats that are more
2 feet deep, as long as water within them 2 feet
or greater can be used for access.
Please go to www.alternativee.com for
more details and to make public comment.

In scheme of things, noise issue ranks low


EDITOR:
I'm feeling better now that the
concerned citizens are expressing
concern over this pressing issue of
noise at Naval Air Station Key West.
Finally, an issue that we can get our
teeth into.
No more trifling things like drug
gangs taking over our cities, an ille-
gal immigrant situation that is out of
control, terrorists coming across the
borders with our poor unfortunate
neighbors in Mexico. Not to worry,
though, there are sanctuary cities in
this country that will take them in.
Trillions. of dollars in newly


acquired debt? Not to worry, the gov-
ernment has a plan, Unemployment?
No problem, the government has 7
promised millions of new jobs, prob-
ably in the military due to the two
wars we are now involved in.
Cheer up, people, once we get
those arch criminals at AIG shot at
some distant sunrise, and money is
appropriated to put mufflers on the
evil Navy airplanes, the normal petty
problems will be all that we have to
contend with.

County strong-arms cities


EDITOR:
It seems that we have traded the
Gang of Three for the Highwaymen,
or is that Highway persons?
How is it that those elected on
their alleged concerns for the people
immediately forgot their promises?
They allowed themselves to forget
their concerns and voted against those
that they serve.
When the County Commission
looked to the cities for approval to
raise the gas tax, they included a small
bit of coercion in the form of a threat
to withhold the cities' share-of the 2
percent tax. This share goes to the
cities to shore up their infrastructure.
It- is sorely .needed for this purpose.
When the cities failed to back the
gas tax's raise, the County
:Commission promptly let them know


that the sharing of the 2 percent tax
was over at the end of this fiscal year.
In effect, the city of Marathon will
lose in next year's budget approxi-
mately $300,000, Key Colony Beach
will lose $38,000-plus and the other
cities will lose commensurate with
their previous shares.:
As a result of the county's fiscal
irresponsibility over the last four or
five years, the cities will be denied
their share. Guess what will happen
then? Your taxes (if you live in a Keys
city) will go up, while the county
throws more good money after bad.
Just keep this in mind when your
chance to vote for county commis-
sioner comes up again.
Tucker De Graw
Key Colony Beach


-EDITOR:
You recently published a letter in
which the writer attacked "our con-
gresswoman who represents the
Keys for voting against the stimulus
package. In my view, the Democrats
acted in an, undemocratic-manner in
introducing the stimulus package
without allowing any debate in the
House, and broke their rule on publi-
cation prior to a vote.
Indeed, no member of Conrgress
ever read the bill prior to its passage
an absolute disgrace. Most analy-
ses after the fact concluded that only
about $300 billion of the $800 bil-
lion bill would' result in a stimulus
effect, and only about 25 percent of
the-bill would even be spent in fiscal
2009 and 2010. The balance, 75 per-
cent of the appropriation, will go to
ideological goals of the far left, the
payoff for their election support. It
would appear that Pelosi, et. al., are
graduates of the Socialist Thug
Institute of Venezuela.


Indicative of the thinking of the
White House staff are the trial bal-
loons to-have wounded veterans pay
for their own health care and to force
talk radio to provide equal time to .
liberals. Democrats clearly support
free speech but only if you agree
with them.
We have some of the same prob-
lem in Monroe County. How the
county could increase taxes in the
midst of a recession has all the char-
acteristics of a banana republic. The
school system is not to be outdone
- assuming that the superintendent
and his spouse file joint federal tax
returns, then they both might be
guilty of tax fraud.
If our governor could bother to
get off his knees from kneeling to
Obama, he would dismiss the super-
intendent and appoint the candidate
who ran against him.

Lend Pigeon Key a hand


EDITOR:
OK, Pigeon Key is not really
Marathon's, but certainly we should take
some figurative ownership of the little
island, with its rich history woven together
with that of Marathon's. If you have never
done so, visit the place for a very informa-
tive tour. And notice the disarray. Lack of
funding is taking too great a toll.
Hopefully you will be motivated to put
in some sorely needed volunteer work
hours. So far, it has been my pleasure to
have donated six or seven days, on and off,


of my time doing minor carpentry repairs
in that lovely setting. I urge you to join the
others and me. You will be rewarded with
seeing tangible results and feeling just
plain good, about yourself. -
High levels of skill are not needed.
Some of the activities include tour guiding,
cleaning, power spraying, trimming and
maintaining landscapes, carpentry, painting

College chief more than earns her pay


EDITOR:
In response to the letter published April
4 regarding the compensation given to the
president of Florida Keys Community
College. The author, Mr. Yury Rodriguez,
should be noted for his bravery: It is rare
,these days to hear-anyone saying educators
are paid too much.
Consider the common experience among
regents nationwide, finding their budgets
insufficient to attract the best and brightest
leaders of their schools. Boosters who care
about the institutions often create private
grants to boost the pay package for a high-
value prospective hire. This is done most
publicly with NCAA football and basketball
coaches, but is done. frequently for profes-
sors and executives, too.
The FKCC search team knew what they
had in Dr. Jill Landesberg-Boyle, so a grant
was created. Is it wrong for her to feel
slighted when the promised compensation
suddenly became reduced? Would any of us
be OK with being told our job performance
had not slipped, but that our pay would be
reduced by precisely the amount of our
monthly mortgage? Anyone with a sense of
fairness would object.
Mr. Rodriguez criticized her pay as "over
four times the national average." The cost of


living here is nearly three times the national
average, but ask yourself this: Who would
ever want a president, let alone a school,
that could be called average? Would anyone
want to enroll? Would professors care to
stay and teach? A school like that would not
survive. If you want excellent future leaders,
you need an excellent school with an excel-
lent president. The hiring team had to pay
competitively to attract Dr. Landesberg-
Boyle, and after more than a year of having
her, they were smart enough to keep her.
Education is publicly funded because,
ultimately, it's an investment in the future of
our community: Naturally, an exceptional
president is a part of that investment.
Frequently, Dr. Landesberg-Boyle meets with
lawmakers and education lobbying groups in
an effort to bring millions of dollars back to
our education system. She is working to cre-
ate a hundred new jobs, all with the aim of
bettering our education system.
The board, which Mr. Rodriguez criticizes,
acted wisely. It knew not to chase her away
with a sudden and unmerited pay cut, because
the consequence is that no other truly quali-
fied person would accept that job ever again.
And then where would. our children be?

20 years later,
Keys resident
back in jail
McClatchy-Tribune


A disabled Vietnam War veter-
an from Islamorada has spent
more than 30 days in the Glynn
County (Ga.) Detention Center
on a marijuana possession charge
from 20 years ago.
Carlisle Dale Moore, 63, was
arrested on a warrant March 12,
arraigned this past Thursday and
as of Friday remained in jail.
He was arrested 20 years ago
on a felony pot possession charge
on his way to a class reunion in
North Carolina. He was a passen-
ger in a car driven by Charlie
Mixon. The, two were traveling
on Interstate 95 through Glynn
County in a rental car from the
Keys.
The car was pulled over by
Glynn County police, who
searched the vehicle and found
marijuana. The two were arrested
and released on bond.
Terri Edgerle-Sims, a close-
friend of Moore, said Moore never
heard anything more about charge
or the case. She said Moore lost
touch with the driver of the car and
hadn't heard from him in years.
The disposition of Mixon's case
couldn't be determined.
But the incident caught up

years later,
when he was

Social

In October, the
check ks
MOORE stopped.
When
Moore called the Social Security
Administration to find out why,
he was told there was a warrant
for him in Glynf County that
needed to be cleared before the
checks would resume.
Edgerle-Sims said Moore con-
tacted the Glynn County Sheriff's
Department and was told to go to
Brunswick and meet with an offi-
cer with the Sheriff's Department.
Edgerle-Sims alleges Moore
was told a bench warrant had
been issued by Brunswick
Judicial Circuit Chief Superior
Court Judge Amanda Williams
citing a failure to appear in court
to answer to the charges in the
marijuana case.
In February he traveled to
Glynn County. After court offi-
cials explained arrest and book-
ing procedures to him, he was
allowed to return to Florida to
take care of his personal affairs
after promising he would return,
in March to deal with the warrant.
On March 12, Moore returned
to Glynn County by Greyhound
bus. He reported to Glynn County
Undersheriff Ron Corbett, was
taken to booking, arrested and
placed in the Glynn County


Detention Center without bond.
"You can't just put him in
there and throw the key under the
carpet," Edgerle-Sims said.
Edgerle-Sims said the court
system should have notified
Moore about his court appear-
ance 20 years igo.
"If he had received something,
he would have handled it. He's
not a rogue," she said.
Sheriff Wayne Bennett
acknowledged that during the
weeks between Moore's two
recent visits to Glynn County,
Moore made an effort to clear up
the warrant but was unsuccessful.
He was arrested March 12 fol-
lowing a conference between
staff members in the Sheriff's
Department and the District
Attorney's Office. But the district
attorney would be in a bad posi-
tion to pursue the case because of
difficulty in locating witnesses
and evidence from that long ago,
he said.
Moore has a felony drunk-
driving conviction, but aside
from that, he has lived a relative-
ly crime-free life. In the Keys,
he's been cited for civil infrac-
tions such as boat-registration
offenses and not using a diver-
down flag.
Brunswick Judicial Circuit
District Attorney Stephen Kelley
has little sympathy for Moore's
predicament.
"It's the defendant's responsi-
bility to make sure his bond infor-
mation is correct with the clerk's
office," Kelley said. "It's their
responsibility to make sure their
address is up to date."

Feds free up $132M.
in sewer funding

The state Department of
Environmental Protection said
Friday that $132 in federal stimu-
lus money has been earmarked
for Florida sewer and stormwater
projects.
The money is designed to help
the state and local governments
finance such projects that are
"essential for protecting public
health and the environment
across the state," DEP said in a
prepared statement.
The $132 million will be used
to make low-interest loans to


local governments. At least 50
percent will go to "disadvantaged
communities in the form of loans
under which repayment of loan
principal will be forgiven," DEP
says.
About 70 projects are now
under review for award of the
federal funds. It wasn't clear
Friday whether any of them are in
the Keys.
Those who get the money
must meet the basic qualifica-
tions of the state's Clean Water
State Revolving Fund program,
be willing to accept certain feder-
al requirements and have their
projects under construction no
later than mid-February 2010.

Teens await trial for sex tape


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Four Upper Keys teenagers
were ordered to 21 days of house
arrest and another was ordered to
21 days in juvenile detention
Friday for allegedly taking part in
the filming of a 16-year-old girl
and a 19-year-old man having
consensual sex.
Eight Upper Keys teens -
including several living at the
Upper Keys Children's Center in
Tavernier were arrested
Wednesday on felony charges of
making child pornography at a
Key Largo home on March 22.
Another two teens were out of the
county but were expected to be
arrested and charged when they
returned this weekend.
The three adults, ages 18 to
19, charged are being held in jail
with bails -set at $175,000 per-
felony count.
The five juveniles currently in
the Keys were before Circuit
Court Judge Luis Garcia at the
Plantation Key Courthouse for a
detention hearing on Friday.
Garcia ordered four of the


teens, ages 13 to 18, to be
detained- at their homes or the
Children's Shelter and not be
allowed to communicate with
others involved in the crime or be
outside their homes without adult
supervision.
Prosecutor Colleen Dunne
argued that the cruelty of the
alleged offense warranted they be
kept in secure-juvenile detention.
Garcia said he agreed with her
logic, but state law does not
allow it. -
One of the teens, a 14-year-
old, was ordered to juvenile
detention because his arrest over
the sex tape violated his current
probation on a drug offense.
All of the defendants will have
arraignment hearings on May 5,
where the state will charge them
with specific crimes. Dunne said
her office plans to charge all of
the teens.
According to Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Deputy Becky
Herrin, the 16-year-old girl who
participated in sexual acts in the
video reportedly told a friend


about it. The friend reported it to
Deputy Will Schlegelmilch, a Key
.Largo School resource officer.
Detective Linda Mixon inves-
tigated, going to the home where
the video was filmed and talking
with a woman who handed over
her son's video recorder, which
had the recording inside. From
the tape, Mixon was able to iden-
tify 10 people who participated in
its making, Herrin said.
Mixon then interviewed the


J~~M


16-year-old girl, who reportedly
said the sexual activity she partic-
ipated in with 19-year-old Derek
Williams was consensual.
Williams, of Palm Drive in
Key Largo, is charged with two
counts of committing the act of
sexual performance by a child.
Caesar Gjerde, 18, of Atlantic
Drive in Key Largo, allegedly
operated the video recorder and is
charged with one felony count.
Michael Thelus, 18, of


Highpoint Road, Islamorada, and
Kenneth Carter, 19, of Hammocks
Trail, Key Largo, are charged with
one felony count each.
The victim is also being
charged with a child pornography
count, and the 13-year-old boy
who owned the camera is charged
with two counts.
The four other juveniles are
charged with one count each of
using a child in a sexual perform-
ance.

TraumaStar panel

doesn't take off


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Monroe County Com-
mission spoke at length, but
decided on nothing, Wednesday
about a pair of items dealing with
TraumaStar and other emergency
services in the Keys.
Commissioner Heather
Carruthers received a cool
response from her colleagues on
her plan to form an emergency
medical transportation task force
comprising 16 Keys medical or
emergency professionals and five
members of the public to gauge
service levels throughout the
county.
The committee was meant to
analyze TraumaStar, the air ambu-
lance service provided jointly by
the county and Sheriff's Office;
ground ambulance service; and
receive free air ambulance service
Upper Keys residents get from
Miami-Dade County.
Carruthers was clearly frustrat-
ed, saying "it boggles my mind"
that fellow commissioners don't


want to take stock of what she
considers the county's most
important .service. At Wednes-
day's commission meeting, she
eventually pulled the item off the
agenda to make changes to her
proposed task force.
Mayor George Neugent and.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro say the committee is
unnecessary and that the system
works fine.
"I have an aversion to com-
mittees in general, especially
when they involve over 20 pep-
ple," Neugent said.
Marathon and Islamorada Fire
Chief William Wagner said the
committee would essentially do
what's already been done.
"We've already gone through
this process. I know what the rec-
ommendation will be; leave the
system alone," Wagner said. "It's
not broke, don't fix' it."
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
was Carruthers' lone supporter.

Truman marina proposals far apart


Specific plans
and the costs
not even close
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

As plans shape up for the
Truman- Waterfront, Key West
officials are reviewing two bids
for. the construction of a marina
on the 33-acre parcel.
One weighs in at $32 million
and looks to'bed tax revenue to
help finance a mega-yacht facili-
ty; the other projects a $14 mil-
lion price tag from developers
who say they have the financing


to start without any help from bed
'taxes.
"I'm not the brightest crayon
in the box, but I sure like that
one best at this particular point,"
Mayor Morgan McPherson told
a crowd attending a forum where
waterfront plans were discussed.
"The other [proposal] would ask
us to go to the [Tourist
Development Council] and ask
them to commit a dedicated half
penny. We have to do what is
best to move that property for-
ward and our goal, just like any
initiative the city comes up N ith.
is to, not burden the taxpayers."
The bid from Meisel and


Spottswood Marina
.Management Co., incorporated
to bid on the project, aims at
mega-yacht owners and would
accommodate vessels up to 250
feet long.
Spottswood's plans call for
the city to help finance the $32
million price, tag by issuing a
long-term revenue bond, which
they suggest could be supported
by a dedicated half cent from the
newly implemented one-cent
increase in the bed tax.
The proposal calls for:
Dockage for boats between
60 feet and 250 feet long, with
37 slips and space for 18 mega-
yachts along 800 feet of water-
front.

Keynoter. "I think the obvious
objective is to get a more upscale
visitor into Key West. Lacking

addressed in Marathon and

occupancy rates averaging 70
percent year-round, with a daily
high of 90 percent from
November to April.
It projects 14 months for

The other bid being reviewed
by the city comes from Key West

Grove Harbour Marina .in
Coconut Grove.
This plan calls for:
Dockage for boats between

costs an estimated $14 million

Two primary differences
between the two proposals:
Spottswood doesn't have the

space than Key West Harbour's
plan, which would limit con-
struction to the area immediately
surrounding the marina.
.Both have indicated a possi-

Waterfront busy


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Just because development
plans for the Truman Waterfront
aren't complete doesn't mean
there's not plenty of action on the
property.
On Wednesday the 130-foot
schooner Western Union, Key
West's flagship, was pulled from
the water for repairs that are slat-
ed to last through December. The
refurbishment will be done on
site by a team of. shipwrights;
plans call for a new transom and
a new aft section of the deck.
Last December, the ship sailed
to Miami to undergo repairs that
would make her able to pass a
U.S. Coast Guard inspection and
delay the major refurbishment
that's just now starting.
The Western Union is the
largest ship ever built in Key
West and was initially owned by
the Thompson Fish Co. From
1939 until 1974, the Western
Union was used to lay and repair

United Way of Keys
expands its reach

The board of the United Way..
of Monroe County has voted to
help fund an Upper Keys food
bank as part of a shift in meeting
critical community.needs.
The board also has approved a
name change, United Way of the
Florida Keys, and a new mission
statement, Leader in Community
Caring. It. adopted as its mission
playing a lead role helping com-
munity organizations identify
and serve those most in need.
The decision could not have
come at a better time, according
to the Rev. Kerry Foote, pastor at
Burton Memorial United
Methodist Church. His Tavemier.
church operates a food pantry
and hot-meal program.
Volunteers from the commu-
nity along with members of the
congregation help with the pro-
gram, which has seen a signifi-
cant increase in need.
"The United Way's generous
grant of $10,000.00 will go a
long way in ensuring Burton will
continue to be present in this
community to help people with
the basic need of fobd for their
families," Foote said.

Mexico and Caribbean. There
was enough space in her main
cargo hold for 20 miles of cable
and 80 tons of cargo.
In 1997, Key West's Historic
Tours of America obtained the
Western Union and began operat-
ing it for day and sunset sails and
charters. Late in 2007, Historic
Tours' owner Ed Swift donated
the vessel to Schooner Western
Union Preservation Society under
the condition that it be restored
and remain in Key West.
Last year, the county Tourist
Development Council approved
$405,000 for the refurbishment.
And of course, there's the USS
Vandenberg.
Early estimates had her com-
ing into Key West on Monday,
but City Commissioner Bill
Verge, the city's point man on the
project, told the Keynoter that has
changed.
"It's in bad weather right now.
You can't control that. There's a
lot of moving parts to it."
The ship is being pulled by a
tug and must be maneuvered into
port by tugboats. Verge estimated
an arrival sometime on
Wednesday.
Those who want to see the
Vandenberg arrive should watch
the weather and estimate her
arrival accordingly. The best-

The Vandenberg, a 520-foot

is en route to Key West from
Norfolk, Va. She will eventually
be scuttled as an artificial reef
about six miles off the island.
During her voyage, the tug's
crew has "got to be careful,"
Verge said. "We. don't want
somebody else to get a free artifi-
cial reef."
The scuttling has been more
than a decade in the planning.
The final cost to get it done, what
with.transport and cleaning con-
taminants from the vessel, will be
more than $9 million.

Rego steps down from the TDC


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Tourist Development Council
member Frank Rego resigned
from the Monroe County adviso-
ry board Friday, saying he needs
to focus on family and a new
business.
Rego recently purchased the
convenience-store business at the
Tavemier Chevron, mile marker
91.8.
"I have gone into a new busi-
ness of my own," Rego said
Friday. "I want to concentrate on
dedicatingmy time to making it a
success, and to my two children.
It's really all about my kids."
County Commissioner Mario
Di Gennaro nominated Rego to
serve on the TDC in February
2008 to represent the panel's
District 4, which centers on
Islamorada. The four-year term
was to expire in 2012.


"We'll see who's out there,
then we'll make a nomination to
fill the seat," Di Gennaro said.
Under county ordinance, six
of the nine people on the TDC
must be professionals in the
tourism industry. The other three
are elected officials.
Rego previously was a vice
president of Cay Clubs Resorts
and Marinas. He was among the
most visible local representatives
of the now-defunct development
company as it acquired a string of
Florida Keys properties and busi-
nesses.
Rego has said he counts him-
self among those damaged by
Cay Clubs' financial collapse in
the overheated property market.
When appointed to the TDC
last year, Rego represented local
vacation properties owned,. by
SunVest Communities. "My
qualifications were examined and


proven," he said.
SunVest recently sold its Keys
holdings. Rego said the sale will
not be final for another two
months, and he is still under con-7
tract to represent the firm.
While he said the new busi-
ness and family were the primary
reasons behind his resigning,
Rego said. questions about .his
current status as a "tourism
accommodations" representative
on the TDC played a role.
"All that information was
readily given last year, and [coun-
ty staff] started asking for every-
thing again," he said. "Frankly, I
was not going to do that."
Rego, a former executive chef,
said he busy is preparing to
reopen the delicatessen at the
Tavemier Chevron. "I live here
and have for a while," he said.
"I'm not going anywhere."
He is the third consecutive
District 4 representative to step
down after abbreviated stints on

integrity of the nation's older
bridges is visually checked every
two years by inspectors, while
newer bridges have monitoring
devices built in.
But there are- thousands of
bridges many built in the
1960s and 1970s that go
unchecked.
-Now, researchers at the
University of Miami's College of
Engineering are launching a $14
million project to implement a
self-powered monitor system for
bridges that will continuously
check their condition using wire-
less sensors that "harvest" power
from structural vibration and
wind energy.
"Just as when someone goes to
see a doctor and gets all sorts of
tests done to see how healthy they
are and how long they'll live,
we're doing the sante with
bridges," said Antonio Nanni, pro-
fessor and chair of the Department
of Civil, Architectural, and


in the district geographic area.

the project's lead investigator.
Among the bridges to be used
in the study is the Long Key
Bridge.
Nanni and his team plan to
place newly developed wireless
sensors, "some as small as a
postage stamp, others no longer
than a ballpoint pen," along
strategic points inside.
The sensors, developed by
project collaborators Virginia
Tech and New Jersey-based
Physical Acoustics Corp., record
a variety of data, including vibra-
tions and stretching to acoustic
waves and echoes emitted by
flaws such as cracks. Even the
alkaline levels in the concrete pf
bridge supports are being meas-
ured.
The UM project could be used
as a national model for monitor-
ing the structural integrity of
bridges nationwide and alerting
of dangers.

Musical chairs on planning board?


Cameron out,
but could be
put back in
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Wednesday was a strange day
for the Monr6e County Planning
Commission: Chairman Jim
Cameron was removed from his
seat, only to be nominated a short
time later to fill a spot vacated
when fellow Commissioner John
Maiston resigned.
It happened during a bizarre
two-hour stretch at the County
Commission's regular meeting in
Key West, beginning with a reso-
lution sponsored by County
Commissioner Kim Wigington
aimed at allowing new commis-
sioners to appoint their own rep-
resentatives to the Planning
Commission.
"I simply wanted my own
appointment and Denise Werling


Billed as a political forum, the
first candidate meet-and-greet of
the Key West election season
hosted by the Hometown!
Political Action Committee
Wednesday night quickly became
an impromptu discussion about
nude beaches.
When two topless female
bicyclists interrupted a speech by
mayoral candidate Craig Cates at
the event at Salute Restaurant,
that pretty much ended the politi-
cal forum.
Cates did a quick wrap-up and
then various groups dissected the
incident over cocktails.
Among other mayoral candi-
dates who spoke, Sloan
Bashinsky told the nearly 100
assembled that he had wanted to
bring a topless hula dancer to per-
form as a visual aide to empha-
size his pitch to bring a clothing-
optional beach l to the
Southernmost City.
But the plan didn't work out.
Salute management wasn't hav-
ing it and neither was

is very objective, .especially'
when we're revisiting our [com-
prehensive] plan. The objective
was that no appointments would
be made by outgoing commis-
sioners," Wigington told the
Keynoter.
County law allowed sitting
commissioners to appoint or
reappoint members to that board
months before elections that
could potentially oust their spon-
sor from office.
Former county commission-
ers Sonny McCoy and Dixie
Spehar reappointed Donna
Windle and Cameron, respec-
tively, to the planning board prior
to leaving office. Both county
commissioners were defeated in
the August Republican primary,
Spehar by Wigington and
McCoy by. Carlos. Rojas.
The commission debated the
change at length, but it was ulti-
mately approved. A separate vote
was then called so Wigington


Bashinsky said he moved on
at that point and forgot about his
idea. That is, he forgot about it
until he spotted the woman he
had initially tapped to dance.
Ahhh, serendipity.
In the midst of Cates' speech,
*Bashinsky let out a whoop and
laughed, pointing past Cates,
who halted and later admitted to
being nervous, having to speak in
public.
All semblance of order imme-
diately vanished at the disruption,
although Hometown! PAC's
Todd German did an exceptional
job trying to moderate what was
quickly dissolving.
Arid the woman, whom
Bashinsky refers to as Aphrodite,
along with her friend popped off
their bikini tops and leisurely
pedaled their bicycles past the
open-air restaurant.
The talk after that was not
about politics.

held Oct. 6 with a runoff, if
required, on Nov. 3. Qualifying

ends at noon on Aug. 21.


could remove Cameron and
replace him with former 'long-
time planning commissioner
Werling.,
In addition, planning commis-
sioners' terms will be now four
years instead of two.
The matter of appointments
appeared to be settled after
Cameron was removed until
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro returned from lunch
with a handwritten resignation,
apparently on an index card,
from Marston, his appointee.


Di Gennaro had lunch with
Cameron and Marston, and told
the Keynoter Marston was
unhappy with Cameron's
removal.
The issue was then reopened
when the County Commission
reconvened at 1:30 p.m. and Di
Gennaro nominated Cameron for
Marston's now-vacant seat.
"I feel he's the best qualified
person and I ... have to appoint
someone. This way it's over in
one day," Di Gennaro said.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy


objected to the last-minute
appointment: "I would rather this
be put on the May agenda, legal-
ly."
Wigington said she had no
problem with Di Gennaro's deci-
sion.
"It. was nothing personal, I
just wanted my own appbint-
ment," she said Wednesday.
Randy Wall represents
Murphy on the Planning
Commission, while -Mayor
George Neugent's appointee is
Jeb Hale.

Slaton's petition denied by appeals court


Judge sought
to keep election
ballots sealed
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


On' Wednesday, Monroe
County Circuit Court Judge
Tegan Slaton petitioned a
Tallahassee appeals court to
block the opening of rejected
absentee ballots from the
November election.
On Thursday, the First District
Court of Appeal denied the
motion and offered no explana-
tion.


What's at stake are 66 absen-
tee ballots from the 2008 judicial
election that were rejected by the
Monroe County Elections
Canvassing Board. The board
found that signatures on the bal-
lots didn't match signatures on
file in the elections office.
Former court administrator
Mary Vanden Brook lost- to
Slaton by four votes following a
ballot review, and manual and
-machine recounts. In late
November, she sued Slaton, the-
Canvassing Board and Elections
Supervisor Harry Sawyer, among
others, contesting the results.
Slaton's petition "was an


attempt to stop the process out of
fear that it would lead to irrepara-
ble harm," Chief Assistant
County Attorney Bob Shillinger
said. "The ballots could be
opened in such a way that allows
us to know how certain people
voted, and one of the hallmarks
of our democracy is the right.to a
secret ballot."
He said he is trying to come up
with a way to open the ballots and
maintain voter secrecy.
"When you send [in] your
absentee ballot, you have waived
your right to a secret ballot,"
Vanden Brook said. "Someone
has to open that ballot and put it
in a machine."
Since the case went to trial,

Tallahassee-
based Circuit
Court Judge
Kevin Davey
ordered both
sides to depose
the absentee
voters in ques-
tion and deter-
STON mine if indeed
they cast their
absentee ballot.
When that's complete, Davey
could opt to open the ballots and
have the votes counted, which
could potentially change the out-
come of the election and who sits
on the bench.
Shillinger, along with staff, at
the Supervisor of Elections
Office and Vanden Brook's attor-
neys, have spent the better part of
the past three months collecting
depositions.
Now, with only one deposition
left on the schedule, Slaton's
camp is arguing that the ballots
were legally rejected and opening
them would compromise the indi-
vidual voters' rights to a secret
ballot.
"I think the timing is really
odd," Vanden Brook said. "It kind
of makes me angry." But "I
understand. They're perfectly
happy with the count they have
because it keeps .Slaton on the

She characterized the petition
as trying to "derail this thing right

Although

Should appeal
the decision.
Vanden
VANDENBROOK Brook said she
doesn't know
if she would seek an appeal fol-
lowing a trial court decision in
Slaton's favor if indeed the law-
suit ever reaches the trial stage.
"I have to take it as it comes,"
she said. "All I've ever wanted is
for all the ballots to be counted
and to be confident in the result."

County: No city airport oversight


Marathon wanted
control over
planning, permits,
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The city of Marathon will
have a seat at the table when it
comes to future Monroe
County use of Florida Keys
Marathon Airport, but
Councilman Dick Ramsay said
he feels the city was slighted
by County Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy.
Wednesday, the commission
rejected, based on staff recom-
mendations, a city request to
assume jurisdiction over plan-
ning and permitting at the air-
port. But the commission did
take Mayor George Neugent's
advice to allow the city input
on major decisions.


"I don't have a problem with
this as long as it's just sitting in
and giving an opinion,"
Murphy said after asking what
the county's policy with the
city of Key West and Key West
International Airport.
Among -the city's concerns
are proposed plans to lengthen
the 5,000-foot runway by 800
feet to allow larger planes to
land, and to move the entire
runway 40 feet to the north
toward Aviation Boulevard,
which runs the length of a resi-
dential neighborhood behind
the airport.
"If that were to happen, the
possibility of having to remove
the buffer of tree line certainly
exists," Ramsay told the com-
mission.. "I believe Marathon
would have a war on its hands
if that buffer were removed."
Ramsay is the city's liaison


on issues related to the county-
owned airport.
"I was somewhat disap-
pointed in the response from
Commissioner Murphy when
she said that she would go
alofig with this potential plan
as long as [the commission]
doesn't give [the city] any
powers," Ramsay said. "It's the
city's feeling we absolutely
must and have to have some
input on major projects at the
airport to protect the citizens of
our city."
Ramsay says it was county
staff, including Administrator
Roman Gastesi and Airports
Director Peter Horton, who
suggested more. than two
months ago the city pen a letter
stating its request to get some
airport oversight. City
Planning Director George
Garrett sent that letter to coun-
ty Growth Management
,Director Andrew Trivette


March 9.
But County .Attorney
Suzanne Hutton wrote in a
March 31 letter to the commis-


Among the
city's concerns
are proposed
plans to
lengthen the
5,000-foot
runway by
800 feet to
allow larger
planes to land.


sion that "any attempt to cede
or transfer such authority to the
city would likely violate the


Federal Aviation Administra-
tion's grant assurance require-
ments and place in jeopardy a
significant source of funding
for airport operations at both
county airports."
Gastesi wrote a letter to
Marathon City Manager Clyde
Burnett dated April 15 declin-
ing the city's request for plan-
ning and permitting control at
the airport. .
"Having read the report as
to the feelings not only of the
legal, department, but others, it
would appear this has ruffled
some feathers and that's not
what it intended to do,"
Ramsay told the commission.
Details of the city's involve-
ment have yet to be deter-
mined, but Neugent suggested
a "checklist" approach by
which the city would voice
approval, or negotiate changes
with the county on future proj-
ects.

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

Walgreens coming next year?


Company says.
count on it
in Marathon
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
Heard updates from
Planning Director George Garrett
on a planned Walgreens store and
progress at the Spottswood
Companies' Faro Blanco Resort
& Yacht Club redevelopment.
Garrett told the council
Walgreens plans to honor its
commitment to build a 14,500-
square-foot store at 53rd Street
and U.S. 1. The former Gary's
Pub & Billiards location would
be the company's second
Marathon store.
"Their conditional use agree-
ment goes until next fall before
they would have to ask for [an
extension.] Their intent is to
honor the agreement," Garrett:
said, "They plan to move forward
in an improved economy later on
in the year hopefully."
Walgreens has a 50-year
ground lease with Realtor Brian
Schmitt, meaning it would own
the building and lease the proper-
ty. The lease is for 25 years, with
a 25-year renewal option,
Garrett said Spottswood plans


to move ahead in three phases
with its marina redevelopment at
Faro Blanco, near mile marker
48. First up is installing roughly
200 boat .slips. Spottswood
secured permits for them from
both the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and state Department
of Environmental-Protection.
Spottswood President Robert


'They plan
to move
forward in.
an improved
economy later
on in the year
hopefully.'
George Garrett,
Planning Director


Spottswood told the Keynoter
previously that the 88-room
upland part of the project will be
put on hold due to the economy.
-Approval of a previously
approved two-year contract
extension for City Manager
Clyde Burnett.
Burnett was hired last April 29
but requested a multi-year deal


from the City Council in
February. The council gave
Burnett a ringing endorsement at
his 180-day evaluation, so the
new deal was not surprising.
Due to the slumping economy,
no changes will be made to his
salary over the life of the new con-
tract. He was hired at $90,000 per
year and received a. raise to
$100,000 after the positive evalu-
ation. The new contract eliminates
any cost-of-living adjustment.
"I ami very pleased with his
performance. I'm looking for-
ward to working with him for at
least the rest of my terrti and
maybe some time thereafter,"
Councilman Dick Ramsay said.
"I think our search and staying
closing to home is working out
well," Mayor Mike Cinque said.
Announced once again spe-
cial meetings this Tuesday at 1
and 3 p.m. at the fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
The 1 p.m. meeting will be to
discuss sewer and stormwater
utility rates. In the later meeting,
the council will review a series of
outstanding development agree-
ments.
The development agreement
discussion will be in part to take
stock of affordable housing
building permit allocations tied
up in projects that have made lit-
tle progress the past few years. It
will also deal with the implica-
tions that lack of progress brings
to the city's central sewer system.

Permit law is delayed


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Key West City Com-
mission was set to vote April 7
on the second reading of an ordi-
nance establishing a new build-
ing permit allocation system.
But City Attorney Shawn
Smith and Planning Director
Amy Kimball-Murley pulled it
from the commission agenda,
delaying what appears tp be like-
ly approval. Why?.
"We got an 11th-hour letter.
We just didn't have time to ana-
lyze the issues relevant to the
ordinance," Kimball-Murley
said. "It was disappointing.
We've had so many public
forums. I've been trying to meet
-with anyone that has concerns."
Attorney Michael Halpern,
who represents the Key West
Innkeeper's Association and the


Ramos family, wrote the letter
asking for the delay.
He wrote that a new permit
allocation system to replace the
rate-of-growth ordinance, which
governed how many permits
could be issued based upon hur-
ricane evacuation times, would
be "oxymoronic" because the
state Department of Community
Affairs has no permit allocations
to assign.
He went on to write that "the
ordinance fails to identify any
studies completed within the last
24 months that support the need
for restrictions upon develop-
ment based upon inadequacies
of ... hurricane evacuation."
A lawsuit Halpern filed
against the city last year on
behalf of the Ramos family was
responsible for Judge Wayne


Miller declaring that ROGO
expired. The Ramoses success-
fully argued they didn't need
permit allocations for a guest-
house.
When Miller struck down
ROGO as no longer valid, the
city started the process .of creat-
ing a new permit allocation sys-
tem-, the final vote for which was
to take place April 7, before it
was pulled from the agenda.
Since Miller's ruling the city
has put in place what's called
zoning in progress, which effec-
tively halts development except
for affordable housing until a
new allocation system is codi-
fied.
The City Commission has
two meetings in May and
Kimball-Murley said the final
vote on the new system would
probably take place at one of
them.

This one-bedroom home on Varela Street in Key West was listed by the owner for $425,000 at the
start of the year. The price was reduced to $399,000 and it's now listed at $385,000.


Realtors: High inventory


would be 2,500 to 3,000 proper-
ties on the market in the Florida
Keys. There are now about 4,000
properties on the market, includ-
ing all types of property com-
mercial, residential and other.
That glut of properties, says
Schmitt, is putting buyers in the
driver's seat and driving down
prices.
The average price of a home
sold in Key West in the first three
months of this year was down
more than 25 percent from last
year, with the average selling price
at $662,577. The median selling
price in Key West was $425,0000.
Schmitt says the drop in aver-
age selling price in the first quar-
ter was about the same Keys-
wide about 25 percent, and
that that average price of a home
in the Florida Keys is now below

price drops 25%
in first quarter
By MARGARET MENGE

The real estate market in the
Keys is not moribund, as some
people might guess from all the
for-sale signs.
Sales of all property in the first
quarter of 2009 were up 4 percent
when compared to 2008, with 278
properties sold. It's the first time
that Keyswide sales for the first
quarter of the year have increased
since 2004, when they were up 11
percent over the prior year. -
In Key West, according to data
released by the Key West
Association of Realtors, sales
have been creeping up since


Coldwell. Banker Schmitt Real
Estate Co., says his company's
numbers are up all around in
number of sales and revenue.
"Sellers believe that we have a
sales problem, because there
aren't any offers," Schmitt told
the Keynoter this week... "My
belief is we have an inventory
problem, not a sales problem."
In a "balanced" or normal

Broker: Many homes overpriced


REAL ESTATE / From 19

$500,000. And, he says, prices
are likely to drop further through
the end of the year.
Schmitt and others say a lot of
sellers just aren't willing to put a
price on their homes that buyers
are willing to pay.
"There are still some unrealis-
tic prices out there," says Barb
Leroux, a broker associate in the
Key West office of Prudential
Knight-Keyside Properties.
"There are still people who think
their homes are priced well and


think that someone is just going
to fall in love with it."
This may be true especially in
Key West.
On Varela Street, in between
Truman Avenue and Catherine
Street, a small, one-bedroom cot-
tage was listed at $425,000 at the
beginning of this year. By March
the price had dropped to $399,000.
It's now listed at $385,000.
On White Street, about half
the single-family homes between
Truman Avenue and Higgs Beach
have for-sale signs in front of
-them, and most of those signs
have remained for more than


three months.
"They're just not motivated to
sell," says John Parce of the Key
West office ot. Coldwell Banker,
talking about a number of home-
owners in Key West who've put
their homes on the market.
"They're financially secure
enough, so their other assets
haven't pinched them so that they
need to sell for cash."
Parce and other agents in Key
West point to homeowners
who've owned their homes for
decades, and have paid off the
mortgage already. They don't
want to settle for a lower price.
"If they want $900,000, god-
damn it that's what they want,"
he says.
Schmitt says the growing dif-
ference between initial list price
and final selling price for homes
in the Keys is proof that a lot of
homes in the Keys are overpriced.
A few years ago, the difference
between initial list price and final
selling price was 8 to 9 percent.
It's now up to about 22 percent.
"Wha,t that tells me is sellers
have not kept pace with buyers
expectation of value," says
Schmitt. "Buyers are focused on
one thing, and that's price."

Race now uses
wireless tags to
determine times
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

There will be no debating who
wins the annual Seven Mile
Bridge Run.
For the 28th installment of the
unique race on April 25, all 1,500
participants will be equipped
with a D-tag, a wireless chip that
instantaneously transmits finish
times to a waiting computer.
Ra@e co-director Ginger Sayer
said she's excited about introduc-
ing the new technology to this
year's race.
The D-tag is a roughly 4-inch
chip encased in orange plastic
that runners will attach to their
shoes prior to the beginning of
the race. Sayer says the system is
extremely accurate and an out-
side company experienced in D-
tag scoring will calculate the
times.
"We'll have a computer set up
at Chappy's and when the runner
hits the finish line, we'll know
the runner's .time and name,"
Sayer said.


Previously, a scanner was used
to scan bar codes, which were.
attached to the runners' numbers
on their backs.
Chappy's Restaurant owners
Bettye and Jim Chaplin have
offered up their new oceanside
restaurant on Knights Key to be
the headquarters for this year's
race.
For the first 27 years, the race
tabulating, the beer truck and, in
recent years, the massage station
for post-race rubdowns have been
atthe entrance to Knights Key.
"We're excited about ... the
venue of having everything down
at Chappy's. Bettye and Jim have
been very accommodating;
they're very community-mind-
ed," Sayer said.
"I assume runners are going to
love the pool and the view as
well as the beer," Sayer said.
Packet pickup and a spaghetti
dinner for racers will be held at
Chappy's from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday
night, and post-race festivities
kick off as soon as today's race is
over.
The Seven Mile Bridge will be
closed April 25 from 6:45 until 9
a.m. on race day, so those with
travel plans should plan ahead.

This is the flood of 1,500 runners during last year's 27th annual
Seven Mile Bridge Run. Runners this year will be equipped with
wireless. chips that will instantaneously transmit their finish times
to a waiting computer at Chappy's Restaurant on Knights Key.


Two of the top three women's
finishers from last year, winner
Marlene Persson and third-place
Amy Triggs, will be in this year's
field. On the men's side, winner
Ben Miller will not be appearing,
but third-place finisher Andrew
Greenidge is slated to be in the
field.
One person who will not is
Miami Heat coach Eric Spoelstra,
proving there's no special treat-
ment in this first-come, first-
serve race.
Spoelstra asked about taking
part along with several of his
front-office people, but missed
the deadline to apply by a couple
weeks. And in the Seven Mile,
only the first 1,500 people whose
returned applications are received
by a specific deadline gain entry.
"We really disappoint so many
people about the fact they've


tried to get in for years and we
really want this to be a fair
process, and we have to treat
everyone the same," Sayer said.
That 'goes for volunteers, as
well.
More than 400 volunteers give
their time each year to help dis-
tribute more than 2,000 oranges,
20 cases of bananas, 5,000 gal-
lons of water, 13,000 cups and
water-soaked sponges.
"We have people- that have
been doing the same job year
after year," Sayer said. "You
almost have to break into a posi-
tion to volunteer."
Proceeds from the race benefit
local schools and athletically ori-
ented youth groups. A total of
$51,250 was distributed among
various groups last year and more
than $400,000 since the race
began in 1982.

Little White House getting a makeover


By MARGARET MENGE
L'Attitudes Editor


For the last few years, _
painters, carpenters and other
workmen have been part of the
public tours of the Truman
Little White House in Key
West. But the seven-year reno-
vation is almost completed, and
.the house is now close to look-
ing like it did when President
tIarry S. Truman made 'this his
winter home.
"We will be presidential, and


not like a museum that has
some worn carpet and stuff,"
says Bob Wolz, director of the
Truman Little White House.
The renovations are expected
to be completed on time for a
rededication ceremony on May
15, which will mark the 60th
anniversary of Truman's reno-
vations on the.home in 1949,
and also the 125th birthday of
President Truman.

Bob Wolz, director of the Truman Little White House
since 1999, sits in the chair in the entryway between the
formal dining room and the living room. Behind him is
a wall showing the wallpaper that was recreated
especially for the home. The card table (right) features

home, though Wolz says if a sitting president or one of
his staffers lit up, they would not be reprimanded.


marked by a number of fortu-
itous events. Wolz's eyes are
wide and his voice full of
incredulity as he describes how
he came across the exact red
floral fabric on the Internet that
originally covered the couches
in the living room; and how a
little lady came in once, and
made a remark about the'
"Japanese" frames around the
prints of paintings from the U.S.
Navy museum in Annapolis.
She was the framer of the origi-
nal paintings that graced the
walls.


"We have a little angel help-
ing us along the way or some-
.thing," says Wolz-.
SPresident Truman spent 175
days of his presidency at the
1890 home off Whitehead Street
in Key West that became known
as the 'Little White House.' He
used it as a place to restore his
fibers, but also wrote some
.major civil rights orders here,
including the one that desegre-
gated the U.S. military.
The home is owned by the
state of Florida, although it
receives almost no state or fed-

sensationalistic trial made head-
lines throughout the world, and the
jury delivered a guilty verdict. Yet

was she an unwilling victim her-

Both the Coral Shores and
Island Christian girls softball
teams face a battle to reach the
late rounds of their respective
district tournaments Monday.
The Lady Hurricanes owned a
solid 11-4 overall record Friday
but still finished fourth in the
competitive District 16-3A
Tournament seeding.
"We won a lot of games but
lost some key district games that
cost us," said Paul Grewe, co-
coach with Mike Young.
The Lady Canes meet tourna-
ment host Carroll at 4:30 p.m.
Monday. The winner advances to
a Tuesday semifinal game
against district regular-season
champion Gulliver Prep. All 16-
3A games will be played at
Carroll.
Winners of the Tuesday semi-
finals meet in Thursday's title
game. Both finalists earn a
regional playoff berth.,
"We'll be ready for districts,"
Grewe said during practice this
week.
"It all comes down to the
basics. We have to put the bat on
the ball, and play solid defense,"

walk-off home run that left the
yard and nearly hit the school
building some 50 feet past the

Dolphin Alli Heller pitched a
complete game, striking out six
and allowing just five hits as the
Dolphins beat the Conchs 6-5.


The home run was Struyf's
second of the game. She fin-
ished 3-for-4 with four RBI.
"As soon as her bat hit it, I
knew it was gone," Dolphins
coach Andrea Murphy said,
adding she never expected the
Conchs to pitch around the
team's most dangerous hitter.
"They only had one out and
a runner on third. If you put her
on.... I don't know how much
better of a position that puts you
in."

he said. "We can't afford to give

Results of the Lady Hurricanes'
regular-season closer, at home

In the last game before spring
break, Coral Shores beat Dade
Christian, 8-5. "We're pretty

said he expected a tough game
decided in the late innings.
"Honestly, I didn't think that
was going to happen, but I knew
.she was capable of doing thqt,"
Wells said. "Every game, some-
body's got to lose. If your team
goes out there and plays well and
loses you can't be mad."
But Murphy said the
Dolphins started off the game
with a poor defensive first
inning, allowing two unearned
runs.
Kendall Galvan walked to
start the game and was bunted
over by Alicia Arrazola, who
also reached on a throwing'error.
Galvan eventually reached on a
hit by Natalie Dudley and
Arrazola-took a large lead from
third and stole home when catch-
er Morgan Longstreth was toss-
ing the ball back to the pitcher.
"That's just pure not having
your head in the game," Murphy
said.
Marathon answered back
with three runs in the bottom
half of the first when Shelby
Kuck knocked in Longstreth,
who reached base on an error.
Struyf then hit her first two-run
homer to put the Dolphins up
3-2.
Ceci Cervantes hit "a solo
home run to tie the game and
scored on a Dolphins error in the
third inning to take the lead. Key
West tacked on another run to
make it 5-3 in the fourth.
The scored remained the
same until the final inning, when
Marathon was fortunate to lead
off with the most potent part of
their lineup.
"You-can't ask for much more
than io have the top of your line-
up" coming to bat, Murphy said.


Shelby Kuck laid down a
bunt single, which.was followed
by a Samantha Rodamer double.
Rodamer took third after an
overthrow on the relay. That set
the table for Struyf's game-win-
ning home run, after which her
teammates were waiting to mob
her at home plate.
"It was an awesome way to
end the game," Murphy said.
"That was our senior night, so it
was their last game on their
home field."
Marathon finished its regular
season 13-11 and finished sec-
ond in District 16-2A. The team
is slated to face Palmer Trinity in
its district tournament opener
Tuesday at 4 p.m. in Miami.
Key West (11-10) is the No. 1
seed in District 16-4A. They'll
face the winner of Mater
Academy and Reagan High
School at 5 p.m. Tuesday at

field in Opa Locka.

Doral tops Fins
Murphy said she tried to warn
the .girls that the typical thing to
do is come out flat after a win,
and to not be that team
Wednesday in a visit to Doral
Academy.
"We were definitely .that
team," Murphy said. The
Dolphins managed just one hit
and lost 6-1 to Doral.
"They're quick and they have
a lot of good players and do a lot
of bunting and slapping. They're
a solid team," Murphy said,
adding the Dolphins still didn't
help themselves in the field or at
the plate.
Marathon's lone run came in
the fourth inning when Struyf
walked and scored on an over-
throw as she stole second base.
Longstreth had the team's lone
hit, a single, in the third inning.

Wagoner paints a career


Conch trackster
also a star on
paintball circuit
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

With her gold Oakleys conceal-
ing blue eyes ("I also have
Versace"), with her blonde hair
swept back, with her earrings and
pendant gleaming in the sun,
Brittany Wagoner arrived for an
interview before track practice this
week at Key West High School.
The 16-year-old sophomore is
a rising Conch star who, at
Wednesday's district meet, quali-
fied for regionals in the pole
vault, high jump and long jump.
She also was also on the qualify-
ing 4x400-meter relay team.
But what many track-meet rail
birds might not know is that she
is the only semi-pro female paint-
ball player in the country a
distinction that has led to her own
fan club.
"I have real good gun-battling
skills," she said, flashing a per-
fect smile.
If there is a female equivalent


to Phillip Young, the Conchs'
dominating junior, it is the 5-foot-
9 Wagoner. Both have athletic
physiques knitted with just
enough skin to do the job.
"She's not afraid to try any-
thing, and most of the time she
wins," Young said. "She's kind of
like me."
But Wagoner's passion is
paintball, though not the war-like
kind played in camouflage gear.
The version she plays is called
speedball, where face-masked
teams face each other on a barri-
er-strewn field.
Named 2008 female player of
the year' by Splat magazine,
Wagoner drives her Chrysler 300
five and a half hours on the week-
ends to practice with the Palm
Beach _Vipers. She often flies to
tournaments around the country
that draw large crowds.
In male-dominated paintball,
Wagoner who has never shot a
real gun is met with skepticism.
"They underestimate me and
don't give me respect," she said.
"Boys are like, 'Oh, yeah, you're
cool, I don't want you to .shoot
me.' When I outplay them, they


have a different attitude toward
me."
What does it feel like to be
splattered by a paintball? "Like
being snapped with a rubber band
or stung by a bee," she said.
"Sometimes it breaks the skin.
See this scar on my arm?"
As a member of a military
family (her father Kerry is in the
Coast Guard), Wagoner is living
for the second time in Key West.
Born in Plymouth, Mass., she has
also lived in Hawaii and St.
Petersburg. After her junior year
at Key West, she will move on
again.
Aware of her marketability,
Wagoner hopes to model for a
paintball equipment company.
Boasting a 4.5 grade point aver-
age, she has the University of
Florida and Duke in mind, and
wants to be an orthopedic sur-
geon.
For-now, she is focused on
track. "I have got to get to the
state meet," she said, before lop-
ing out to rejoin her teammates,
who, into their laps, had begun to
razz her.
"She's a great asset," said dis-
cus thrower Kevin Pribramsky.
"We all love her."

Cyclones storm


tennis Dolphins


Carrollton
again in way
of advancement
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Carrollton School players
once again stood in the way of
Marathon High School's girls
tennis team-reaching its goal of
advancing to the Class 1-A
regional tournament.
The Dolphins fell just short
last year and hoped to break
through this season and reach
the regionals for the first time in
school history. Marathon lost
just twice this season and coach
Chris Bull knew the team would
need to perform well against the
Cyclones at districts to have a
chance to advance.
But Marathon fell short, los-
ing two matches to Carrollton
players on day one of the tour-
nament.
Kelsey Wonderlin led 4-3 in
the first set, but lost 4-6, 0-6 in
the No. 3 singles matchup, while
senior Michelle Bellevue lost in
the No. 4 match 6-4, 1-6, 4-6.
"Michelle's last match was a
great fight [but] she unfortunate-
ly came out on the wrong side of
the results. She has been a great
contributor throughout her high
school career," Bull said.
Dolphins No. 1 Marisa
Brossard advanced to the final
round in singles Tuesday with
an easy 6-1, 6-0 victory, but lost
3-6, 2-6 against highly ranked
Ransom Everglades player
Jaime Yamp-shing in the final.
Ransom is a perennial state
power with numerous ranked
United States Tennis
Association players. Marathon
was hoping to advance to
regionals along with the
Raiders.
No. 2 Angela Farello lost 3-6,
6-3, 5-7 to a Palmer Trinity
School opponent in a tightly
contested match and No. 5
Michaelle Rose Bellevue won a
quarterfinal match 6-1, 6-0,
before losing in the semifinals.
The Dolphins' doubles teams
fared well on day one of the
tournament, as the No. I team of
Brossard and Farello advanced
to the final with a 7-6 (10-8), 4-


6, 6-4 win over Westminster
Christian and No. 2 team
Michaelle Rose Bellevue and
Marina Kay Wiatt won a quar-
terfinal matchup 6-2, 6-0 over
Westminster.
But both teams fell
Wednesday .Brossard and
Farello 2-6, 5-7 in the final and.
Bellevue and Wiatt 2-6, 0-6 in
the semifinal.
"Having a private tennis
academy in our district is not the
fairest for our girls, but we have
to deal with it. We look forward
to the off-season to work on var-
ious aspects of our players'
games and playing in some
USTA tournaments so that we
will be better prepared for next
year," Bull said.
The team finished with an
11-2 regular season record.

Boys are stopped
The Dolphin boys struggled
at districts. The No. I doubles
team of John Danaher and Kerry
Woriderlin fared best Tuesday,
losing to Westminster in a tight
three-set contest.
"They beat them in the past
and they were actually the No. 2
seed at districts. They just
weren't as aggressive as they
should have been and the other
team made less errors," coach
Nicole Berger said.
Wonderlin battled through a
shoulder injury to take part in
the district tournament. He and
fellow seniors Ricardo
Dominguez and Jonnie
Lancaster lost their first-round
matches, but Berger said she's
proud of their improvement
throughout the year.
"The seniors took a lot of
leadership and helped the
younger kids on the team to
improve. They'll be missed next
year," Berger said.
Danaher lost his No. 1 sin-
gles match 1-6, 4-6 against a
Palmer Trinity opponent who
went on to defeat Ransom
Everglades in the tournament
final.
"He played consistent with
long rallies and corring into the
net quite a bit," Berger said.
The boys finished the regular
season 4-7.

The sun set on Island
Christian's final home game of
the baseball season Thursday
with the score still tied.
The Eagles (8-9) were head-
ed into extra innings in a 5-5
tie against American Prep of
Broward County when
umpires halted the game
because of darkness.
With playoffs looming and
the game not factoring into
postseason playoffs, the game
likely will not be finished.
The Eagles are slated to
wind up the regular season
with two road games in
Broward County this week,
Tuesday at Fort Lauderdale
Christian and Friday at


Westminster Academy.
When the District 16-lA
Tournament begins April 27,
the Eagles will be seeded third
with a 4-4 record in the league.
That puts the Eagles against
longtime rival Princeton
Christian in the opening game,
played at Princeton.
The winner advances to the
semifinal to face likely foe
Champagnat.
