An ongoing investigation into
allegations of credit card fraud
and misspending at the Monroe
County School District led the
Sheriff's Office this week to
drastically reduce the number of
credit cards doled out to its
employees.
In a Monday e-mail to

Amy Heavilin, Administrative
Bureau Chief Mike Rice ordered
more than 200 credit cards deac-

ACEVEDO / From 1

Acevedo, the former adult educa-
tion coordinator, resigned on
March 3 following allegations she
charged thousands of dollars of
personal items on her district
credit-card.
Acevedo is married to schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo,
who has denied any knowledge of
wrongdoing by his wife. Monique
Acevedo has not made any public
statements since her resignation.
The Reporter wasn't successful in
reaching her for comment on this
report.
Ward previously said he was
waiting for the auditors' final
report before pressing criminal
charges. School District attorney
Richard Collins said it could be
another month before final audits
are finished.
Neither Ward nor his lead. pub-
lic corruption prosecutor, Mark
Wilson, elaborated on what crimi--
nal charges could be brought
against Monique Acevedo.
Earher this week; Wilson said
his investigators were still inter-


viewing employees in the dis-
trict's adult and career- education
department.
"Do I think evidence here will
ultimately result in criminal
charges? Yes, but I'm hesitant to
say how soon," Wilson said.
Wilson said he identified
dozens of Acevedo's credit card
purchases from 2007, and. that
many of the purchased items
never showed up at the district.
"I can say with some confi-
dence that many of the items that
were designated to have been sent-
.to adult education programs seem
not to have appeared," he said.
School finance records exam-
ined by The Reporter show that
Acevedo bought thousands of dol-
lars worth of DVDs, clothing, fur-
niture, groceries and other items
with her district-issued credit
card.
However, those purchases
were described as "textbooks" and
other "supplies" for adult educa-
tion programs in electronic pur-
chase records. The adult education
program includes GED prepara-
tion. .English -for Speakers of
Other Languages and cosmnetol-


ogy. Some items were also report-
edly for the Monroe Association
of Retarded Citizens program.
Wilson wouldn't say whether
he expects to file charges in con-
nection with $100,000 in tuition
reportedly missing from programs
Acevedo oversaw, or in connec-
tion with a dozen of Acevedo's
credit card purchases that match
purchases reported by her hus-
band's 2008 re-election campaign.
Collins said state auditors are
looking at "several areas" of the
adult and career education depart-
ment beyond Acevedo's role, but
they have not yet gone to other
school departments.
Wilson said even though the
investigations will likely be ongo-
ing for months, he won't hesitate
to prosecute when he feels he has
a case.
"Some areas are ripe for prose-
cution before others, and if there's
certain aspects of the inquiry that'
are independent and that are ready,
we'll make a decision then,"
Wilson said. "In all fairness to
Mrs: Acevedo,' we want to make
sure all the facts are in."


Sheriff reduces number of cards


SHERIFF /From 1

number of cards we have issued."
"The whole [School District
investigation] caused me to say,
'How many do we have out
there?'" Peryam said.
The Sheriff's Office has issued
265 gas and rental car cards
through six companies: Avis (48),
BP/Amoco (61), Citgo (58),
Dion's (6), Hertz (38) and Shell
(54).
In many cases, authorized
employees have one of each, but
they are authorized only for the
purchase of fuel and to rent cars.
The number of cards will be
reduced to 15 sets of three,'distrib-
uted among four substations, the
aviation director and the Finance
Division. Each set will include
Hertz and Avis rental car cards,
and a Wright Express Fleet card.
Rice said the Sheriff's Office
is experimenting with using
Wright Express, which provides
cards limited to the purchase of
gasoline and are accepted at
almost any gas station.
The Sheriff's Office also has
15 credit cards tied to accounts at
Home Depot, Sears, Northern


Tool & Equipment, Office Max
and Wal-Mart.
Purchasing records for
December and January show
many of the cards went unused. In
those two months, a total of
$2,224 was charged to the cards.
Among the purchases was a
$240 Kenmore vacuum cleaner
and a $400 26-inch LCD televi-
sion for Peryam's office. The TV
replaces an older one and is used
to monitor hurricanes or other
emergencies, Peryam said.
Rice said all credit card spend-
ing is closely monitored, making
it highly unlikely employees
make unauthorized purchases. ,
"If you want to use our Sears
card to buy something, you don't
get the card until your supervisor
has approved it and the purchas-
ing office gives it to you so you
can use it," Rice said.
Annual audits by the outside
accounting firm of Cherry,
Bakaert and Holland have found
only two "minor issues" in 2006
that were addressed immediately,
Rice said.
However, audits by the state
Auditor General's Office appar-
ently failed to catch illegal pur-
chases that resulted in the .current


scandal at the School District,
where 93 school employees had
Bank of America Visa cards with
various spending limits and,
restrictions. Administrators have
since reduced the number of
active credit cards, though the
specific number wasn't immedi-
ately available.
District financial officials
explained that after purchasing
items, cardholders were required
to enter descriptions of each
transaction into an electronic sys-
tem and provide receipts to the
Finance Department.
At the .end of each month,
bank statements, receipts and the
electronic records are attached to
a form signed by the cardholder
and his or her supervisor,
acknowledging that all purchases
were done legally in the course of
official district business.
But at least with former Adult
Education Coordinator Monique
Acevedo who is at the center of
the investigation many of those
monthly reports had missing
receipts, receipts that did not match
reported purchases and missing
signatures from supervisors.

Key West police report says.
The.car was parked out-
side her.Eaton Street home
and was hit with "red almost
brown colored" paint. The
paint appeared to be the same
as paint found on a neighbor-

The report says the van-

Unlike the Monroe. County
School District, which allowed
widespread staff use of district-
issued credit cards and OK'd
seemingly unlimited store pur-
chase orders, other local govern-
ment agencies seem to have their
spending rules in check.
For example, the village of
Islamorada which has a much
smaller bureaucracy that the
School District has two credit
card accounts, and only one phys-
ical card is held by Village
Manager Ken Fields.
To make a purchase, an
employee must fill out forms that
show what is being bought, why
-it-requires credit card payment
(usually for online purchases or
when checks are not accepted by
vendors), a list of prices for the.
item from at least three vendors,
and the village fund used to pay


for the purchase.
The request has to be signed
by the department head, the
finance director and village man-
ager before the purchase is made
- not by the employee, but by
the Finance Department.
The village also has several
Wright Eipress gas cards, which
are limited to fuel purchases and
require the cardholder to track
fuel use to vehicle mileage.
"It would be nearly impossible
for an employee to make an
unauthorized purchase," Fields
said. "And credit card purchases
make up a very small percentage
of our total purchasing. Most of it
is through purchasing accounts at
local vendors, like Forestek."
Similar procedures exist in
Marathon and Key West, which
also .have few purchasing cards
beyond fuel cards. According to
records, most. purchases are for
approved travel.
"We try to get as many hands


involved as possible. Things get
caught that way," said.Key West
Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg, who holds the city's
only credit card. "Does it make
sense that the Police Department
is buying bullets? Yes. It would-
n't make sense if Public Works is
buying bullets."
In Monroe County govern-
mernt, there are 12 Bank of
America Visa cards issued to
county commissioners, the coun-
ty administrator's office, the
county attorney, the employee
services director and budget/pur-
chasing director.
Budget Director Tina Boan
says her office receives e-mail
notification from the bank at the
point of sale, which begins the
process of collecting receipts
from cardholders.
The budget office examines
each transaction for legitimacy,
and any charges in violation of
policy are immediately paid by


the cardholder.
Boan said one recent example
was when County .Administrator
Roman Gastesi accidentally
charged $1.88 for a soda on his
hotel room bill during travel -
and was caught by the budget
office. He paid it back.
In addition, the County
Court's Office audits all docu-
mentation before paying the
bank.
The Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District issues 13 cards to
supervisors, who are responsible.
for paying their own credit card
bills and then submitting individ-,
ual receipts and vouchers for
reimbursement.
District Director Ed Fussell
said not all employees who travel
carry cards, but the cards do pro-
vide proof to vendors that the
purchase is for a governmental
body and exempt from state sales
tax.
"The sales tax exemption is


not automatic just because they
have a district card. They also
have to submit a sales-tax exemp-
tion form from the district,"
Fussell said. "We have never had
a problem with any of the people
who have been issued a card..
We're very proud of our system.
It works for us."
Records for all of these gov-
ernment agencies examined by
The Reporter and the Keynoter
showed no apparent misuse of the
credit cards.

Keynoter staff writers Kevin
Wadlow, Ryan McCarthy and
Sean Kinney contributed to this
report.

Sewer-tax vote


seems unlikely


Gastesi, Neugent
support it but
Saunders doesn't
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A special 1-cent sales tax
would help fund sewer projects
throughout the Florida'Keys, say
Monroe County officials.
But a county bid to receive
state approval to allow a local
referendum on such a tax seems
to be a long shot in this session
of the Florida Legislature.
State Rep. Ron Saunders of
Key West told the Keynoter
Friday that he doesn't support
the effort, and sees little chance
of its success among legislators
or local voters.
"We're on Day 53 of a 60-day
session," he said'Friday. "In the
middle of a recession, I don't
think there is a lot of appetite for
new taxes."' /
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi said at a Wednesday
public meeting in Key Largo that
the county is actively seeking to
attach an amendment to a bill in'
the Legislature that would
.-authorize the referendum.
With other sources of money
for the massive sewer project
drying up, a sales. tax, could
relieve local property owners of
the some of the financial burden,
he said.
Countywide, a 1-cent sales
tax could generate up to $26 mil-
lion annually, he said.
"I don't know if it will pass,"
Gastesi told the Key Largo
group. "You will be voting on
it."
County Mayor George
Neugent has advocated a sewer-
dedicated sales tax for several
years.
"We got a late start for this
year [in the legislative session]
but we are working on it,".
Neugent said Friday. "No one
gets excited about increasing
taxes but until someone comes
up with a better idea, this looks


like the only solution to our
problem."
Neugent said several other
government entities have asked
the Legislature to approve sales-
tax referendums for various
services, so Monroe County
"could have a better chance this
year than next" of winning
approval.
If the Legislature approves,
county voters would vote yes or
-no during a countywide election.
Funds from the tax would be
shared among municipalities and
special districts trying to build
sewer systems.
The infrastructure costs for
wastewater countywide could
range from $350 to $400 mil-
lion, Neugent said.
A plan championed by
Saunders to create a bond pro-
gram that would provide $200
million over four years passed
the- Legislature but. has been
stalled by the state's financial
woes.
"It's morphed into a big fat
no," Gastesi said.
"'There are a lot of good caus-
es out there, but it seems the first
suggestion for all of them is a
sales tax," Saunders said. "Our
sales tax in the Keys already is
pretty high.
"When people already are
having trouble paying tie rent or
car payment, I don't think that's
a good time to hit them with a
big increase in sales taxes."
And he noted that passing a
special sales tax would give the
state and federal governments a
reason to deny any other funding
requests for sewers.
If a sales-tax referendum is
not approved this year, Neugent
said, "We'll work very hard to
get in passed in the next session,
and educate people about the
need. We need to create a rev-
enue stream that will support the
high cost of implementing this
[wastewater] program."
Without outside aid, Keys
homeowners could face connec-
tion charges of $20,000 or more,
according to some estimates.

Crime rate up Keyswide in 2008


Top' cops say
poor economy_.
plays a part
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

As the economy tanked, crime
rose last year in Monroe County:
After a 1.5 percent reduction
the year before, Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
numbers released this week show
major crimes rose 9.2 percent in
the Keys in 2008 compared to:
2007.
The total number of crimes in
Monroe County-increased from
4,041 in 2007 to 4,413 in 2008.
Crime rose 4.9 percent outside
of Key West and 14.8 percent in
the city itself. The lion's share of
the increase can be attributed to
significantly more in robberies,
burglaries and thefts.
There were 90 robberies (75 in
Key West) in Monroe in 2008, up
from 68 in 2007. Burglaries coun-


tywide increased from 690 in
2007 to 880 in 2008, while thefts
increased from 2,602 to 2,870.
Both Sheriff Bob Peryait and
Key West Police Chief Donie Lee
attribute the increases in these
"crimes of opportunity" to the
down economy.
"People are out of work, they
are hurting for money and some
people may be turning to crime in
an effort to make ends meet. We
have to be vigilant, and, we need
the help of the public to combat
this increase in crime," Peryam
said.
"Unfortunately, we're going to
be facing higher crime rates until
the economy starts to turn
around," Lee said, adding that in
many instances, crime can be pre-
vented if residents take proper
precautions. "People are leaving
house doors opened and car win-
dows down; reduce that opportu-
nity by locking up and things like
that."
The FDLE defines major


crimes as murder, rape, robbery,
aggravated assault, burglary, theft
and auto theft. Following are
additional numbers from the state:
+ Four murders have been
committed in the Sheriff's Office
jurisdiction this year,; as opposed
to three last year. Key West had
no murders in' 2008 and one in
2007.
Rape increased from 34 in
2007 to 42 in 2008. Twenty-nine
were reported in Key West and 13
in the Sheriff's Office jurisdic-
tion,
Aggravated assault
decreased in 2008 to 256 from
332 in 2007. The Sheriff's Office
handled 150 cases, while Key
West had 106.
+ Auto theft countywide
decreased from 311 in 2007 to
271 in 2008.
Both the Sheriff's Office and
Key West Police Department
reported crime clearance rates just
below this year's state average of
24 percent.
The -Sheriff's Office 2008
clearance rate was 22.9 percent,

they were lured by Internet sites

while Key West improved signifi-.
cantly to 23.4.
Last year, Lee disputed a
reported 2007 Key West police
clearance rate of 6.3-percent he
found it to be much higher, 18.1
percent. He cited computer
inputting errors and issues with
reporting arrests overlapping with
the Sheriff's Office.
Lee says he's .proud of the
improved clearance rate for 2008,
but that the department is always
working to increase that number.
"We need to do a better job of
preventing [crimes], but.once they
happen the detectives, have been
doing a great job. Detectives
alone, they're at 50 percent of
successfully clearing cases. They
deal with all felonies, from bur-
glary to homicide," Lee said. "I'm
glad we're in line [with the state],
but I'm always looking for bet-
ter."


Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said law enforce-
ment officers in the Keys are
often hampered in that a large
number of tourists are both vic-
tims and perpetrators of crimes..
"It's even harder to clear our
crimes because we are in a tourist
area. A lot of the folks that come
down here and have crimes com-
mitted upon them go home and
we don't see them anymore,"
Herrin said. "We're working a
*case with a distant victim and the
criminals who prey on them are
transient, too. It makes it diffi-
cult."

Keys Opinion


Tough times trigger

more crime cases

Hard times mean more crime.
Crime statistics released this week by the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement demonstrate a direct link between the econ-
omy and incidences of property crimes.:
A 4.9 percent increase for 2008 versus 2007 in areas patrolled
by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office comes largely with a
jump in burglary and larceny arrests.
"The fact that property crimes are the areas where we are see-
ing the biggest increase is indicative of the economic times,"
Sheriff-Bob Peryam says.
Key West police, who report their crime stats separately, wit-
nessed a 14.8 percent increase in crime last year. This follows a
2.3 percent drop in overall crime in 2007 when compared to the
previous year.
So the downturn in the local economy, which accelerated last
year, definitely impacted the level of criminal activity.
Peryam: "People are out of work, they are hurting for money
and some people may be turning to crime in an effort to make
ends meet. We need the help of the public to combat this
increase in crime."
One interesting trend to emerge is a downturn in violent crime.
Incidents of aggravated assault reported by the Sheriff's Office
dropped 33 percent last year. Aggravated assaults in Key West
were flat with 2007.
The number of mdtrders remained flat, with four reported in all
of 2008, unchanged from 2007.
More aggressive policing, the use of neighborhood patrols and
better investigations all brought a higher clearance rate, particu-
larly in Key West, which posted a clearance rate of 23.4 percent.
Key West did report 29 rapes. last year, three more than in
2007. The Sheriff's Office reported 13 rapes in 2008, an increase
of five.
The Sheriff's Office is urging the public to take extra precau-
tions and reduce the opportunity for crime. Some common-sense
rules like always locking your vehicle and removing high-value
items visible in the passenger compartment are even more
unimportant now.
If you're leaving your home for an extended period, be sure to
have a neighbor checking on your property while you're away.
Vigilant neighbors have helped deputies nab burglars in Key
Largo and Big Pine. '
With reduced staffing at the Sheriff's Office and Key West
Police Department, residents play an ever more important role in
assisting law enforcement. The admonition to be thy neighbors'
keeper resonates now more than ever.

Village has indeed explored Key Largo option


EDITOR:
It's been reported and repeatedly professed
that Islamorada taxpayers have only spent
$50,000 analyzing the feasibility of a wastewater
pipeline to Key Largo. In fact, according to vil-
lage financial accounts, we have spent $199,050,
not including staff salary time over three and a
half years. In my book, that's over $200,000, and
darn close to a quartet million dollars.
The first direction to Islamorada staff to inves-
tigate the practicality of the Key Largo option
came in 2005 nearly four years ago. That ini-
tial request for a small report, spending no more
money, morphed into change order after change
order represented by a pile of documents standing
over three feet high.
Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District
board has continually told Islamorada they."don't,
have the resources" to put a full proposal on the
table. Yet the village is considering expending
more money on another study, when no proposal
is forthcoming.
Indeed, all opportunities to reduce the finan-
cial burden of the July 2010 state wastewater
mandate should be thoroughly vetted. Our mis-


sion, led by Mayor Achenberg, is to be turn over
every rock seeking outside funding.
It's no secret being shovel-ready will put us in
the best position to compete for grants. Yet every
minute and every dollar spent on distractions are
time and money taken away from our obligation
to secure necessary outside dollars.
If the Key Largo sewer board believed it is in
the best interest of their constituents, as well as a
significant benefit to the people of Islamorada, to
hook up to their treatment plant as the vendor,
they would have presented a legitimate proposal
to the village by now.
After all the Islamorada assets spent investi-
gating the Key Largo option, I doubt a new,
smaller study will give the assurances sought.
Unless a full proposal is presented to Islamorada
by the Key Largo board, this commotion is detri-
mental.
Councilwoman Cathi Hill
Islamorada

Editor's note: The village and Key Largo
board have begun talking again about a shared
system.

The Crane Point Mitseum and Nature

grateful to our community for making the Crane

Our goal was to raise community awareness
of Crane Point and that we did.
With more than 700 guests in attendance, we
were able to showcase Marathon's most beauti-

Acevedo is solely responsible for her mess


EDITOR:
I would like to address the letter writer
who inferred that Monique Acevedo has a
shopping illness and could not help herself
[the former Monroe County School District
administrator is accused of using district
money for her personal'use].
So by his logic, a drunk driver that kills
someone should not be held accountable
because he or she may be an alcoholic, or it
is the manufacture's fault for making the
alcohol taste so good. Maybe we should
blame the.guy at the liquor store for selling
it. It is a ludicrous statement.
Her husband, schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo, was her boss, and to be
doubly blind as to what she was [allegedly]
doing means either he is incredibly inept or
he was fully aware and did nothing to stop it.
In either case, he is the wrong person for the
job.
He should have stepped down when this
happened. Someone may have still had some
respect for him.
Oh, and the comment about the parents


and teachers supporting him in the election,
how do you think that vote would go now?

Support teachers' job security


EDITOR:
Please show your support of our
teachers. They spend so many hours
helping our children, it is only fair we
show our support in return.
With the current tight budgets,
many teachers have to purchase. sup-
plies at their own expense and take on
after-school projects without pay. This
is the time to stand behind them and
show them we appreciate all they do
for our children. Please visit the Web
site www.unionvoice.org/cam
paignlcontractslnzy7wxxk8x,
and it will help you quickly, easily
and automatically send a message to
state legislators requesting they
oppose SB 2458 and HB-1411.
These bills would redesign the con-
tract status for Florida teachers. In the
current contract, after the first three
years ,of employment, successful
teachers are placed on a professional
services contract, which renews at the
end of each year unless the teacher is
performing unsatisfactorily. If per-
formance is .unsatisfactory, the teacher
is provided assistance and if they


.don't improve to a satisfactory level of
performance, the teacher is terminated.
The new bills would mean that at,
the end of each contract period, the
teacher's contract could be non-
renewed with no reason at all. The
teacher would be let go with no rea-
son given .and no recourse or possible
hearing.
Teachers should be told if the
administration is unhappy with their
performance and given a chance to
improve. This benefits the. students and
the school. If the new bills are passed
and. someone in the administration does
not like the teacher, at the end of their
current contract, instead of renewing it,
they can just say your contract is non-
renewed and no reason need be given;
they are no longer employed.
Don't let this happen to our chil-
dren's teachers, the people we entrust
with the future of our children and
who give so much to our children and
our community.

Hendrick wants to clear his name?


EDITOR:
Re: Your April 18 article:
"Hendrick sees hope for appeal" (and
possibly pave the way for a multimil-
lion-dollar lawsuit?).
Although former Monroe County
Attorney Jim Hendrick obtained
countless delays in his conspiracy
trial, in February 2007 a jury of his
peers takes just two hours to find him
guilty of witness tampering, conspira-.
cy and obstructing a federal grand
jury in a case involving a county com-
missioner and real estate developers.
Possible sentence: 20 years prison
time, $1 million in fines. ;
I wait, with anticipation, for the
judge's sentence; no way is Hendrick
going to sit in jail for 20 years. The
'logical next step: A plea bargain -
give up the other conspirators in


exchange for a reduced sentence,
open up the can of worms, multiple
indictments, justice prevails. It doesn't
happen.
- Because on June 7, 2007, retiring
U.S. District Court Judge Shelby
Highsmith sentences him to proba-
tion. Three felony counts, 20 years in
prison, $1 million in fines, and he gets
probation?' .
Highsmith says, "An awful lot of
people came forward on your behalf,
do not disappoint us." Hendrick
replies, "I will not."
His wife, with tears in her eyes,
whispers in his ear. Hand in hand, they
leave the courtroom and walk off into "
the sunset or maybe to Aruba. And
he wants an appeal to "clear his name"?

So called leaders aren't leading


EDITOR:
Whether you held a sign or donated
food, coolers, ice, coffee, water, soda,,

tem and the place needed for people to

all who participated in the recent tax-
revolt tea -party on Big Pine Key -
including all the folks driving Jy who

up. The response was overwhelmingly
positive.
It was truly a near-spontaneous, .
nonpartisan, grassroots event by those
of us who understand government can-


not fix our economy by running up tril-
lions and trillions of dollars of debt.
The tax burdens created by this mas-
sive spending will financially cripple
us. Generations yet unborn will still be
paying for today's government excess-
es well iito the future.
So-it is imperative that our elected
officials tighten the government's
budgets. We the U.S. taxpayers are not
their ATM machines. Therefore, we
cannot afford to'continue electing so-
called representatives who are bank-
rupting us and our nation.

Grand jurors nail it,

but likely for naught*


It's not often in Florida politics
you get to see candor orr public dis-
play, especially in Tallahassee with
a long history of double-talk, obfus-
cation, back-room deals and worse.
And "worse" surely describes the
sorry affair of former House
Speaker Ray Samson, indicted on
official misconduct and perjury
charges by a Leon County grand
jury.
He, along with Northwest Florida
State College President Bob
Richburg, could face some jail time,
but few expect that to happen given
this state's old-boys net-
work.
Samson is accused of
misusing his position to
benefit the Panhandle col-
lege that hired him for a "
$110,000-a-year jQb that
was never advertised
shortly after Samson
slipped $6 million into a
budget bill to fund an air-
port hangar for the col- !
lege.
But few outside the for- Wayne
mer speaker's inner circle Keynote
knew what was afoot.
"Regular members [of
the Legislature]," the grand jurors
wrote, "had no idea that they voted
to build an aircraft hangar for a col-
lege that owned no aircraft and
funded a building on land that the-
state does not own."
Oh, and the hangar had one poten-
tial tenant Samson's biggest cam-
. paign donor and longtime friend.
But the grand jury didn't just
expose Samson and Richburg over
state funding irregularities (while
Samson was head of the budget
process, Northwest Florida State
College got $35 million-plus at a
time when the Legislature was cut-
ting funds for much larger universi-
ties and colleges).
In their report, the jurors openly
condemned secret deals and political
payoffs that so corrupt Florida poli-
tics..
Bill Cotterell, the Florida Capital
News Bureau's politics editor, wrote
a column that captured the tone:
"The grand jurors ripped the legisla-
tive process [and] said a few legisla-
tive superpowers have far too much-


power to make covert deals. Besides
helping themselves to the treasury,
they can reward allies or turn off the
spigot for anyone who won't play .
along."
The grand jurors traced the politi-
cal action money that greases the
skids in the state capitol and'found
the process "breed[s] corruption and
creates] an unfair advantage for
those who have money to leverage"
influence on The Legislature."
The. jurors concluded their report
with this admonishment: "Your
grand jurors recommend to the
Legislature that it clean
up this process and that
the state of Florida
become an example to the
nation as a state that
works for the people and
not the special interest of
those who have money to
influence the Legislature."
Too bad their report and
their recommendations
will wind up being
ignored and then forgot-
Mlarkham ten.
Publisher To prove that point, just
consider this week's deal-
making in Tallahassee
where the Seminole Tribe offered a
$1 billion advance on gaming rev-
enue taxes in exchange for expanded .
state gambling licenses that benefit,
only Indian-owned casinos.
We've seen big-money promises
made to the Legislature before, but
not one so blatantly designed to
secure a sweetheart deal. The
Seminoles are lobbying for exclu-
sive rights for some of the more
lucrative games (no sharing with
pari-mutuels), higher limits on
poker tables, and the license to
operate 24 hours a. day and offer
free booze to customers.
As sad as all this is, here's the
kicker. Gov. Charlie Crist is urging
the House and Senate leadership to
accept the $1 billion Indian
advance, saying "do this for the ,
children of Florida."
Somehow, somewhere we've lost
our way.
And the Leon County grand jury's
importuning the Legislature to
"clean up this process" looks like
it's already DOA.

Assistant Monroe County
State Attorney Manny Madruga,
who prosecuted LaTorre, said
LaTorre's main appeal, which
centers around the results of
blood alcohol tests, can't move

LaTorre claims to be indigent

Garcia ruled he isn't entitled to

In December, Garcia ruled
that LaTorre's relinquishing title
of his home to his wife was -an
attempt to "appear indigent." He
also noted two private attorneys
represented LaTorre at trial, and
that "all factors indicate Mr.
LaTorre is not indigent" and
therefore taxpayers shouldn't foot

decision.

Morgan says the brief would

not for "reported errors in the
record of the appeal." He also
wrote that LaTorre has "personal-
ly visited" the court clerk to
review documents and "in doing
so a number of errors were dis-

says Morgan was out of the coun-

Two separate tests showed
Latorre's blood alcohol level to
be 0.101 and 0.102 (driving with
blood-alcohol levels of 0.08 or

TB scare: 'No active cases'


Kejys briefs


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Testing for tuberculosis'at Key
West International Airport has
yielded no active cases of the res-
piratory disease, Monroe County
Health Department Administrator'
Bob Eadie said.
He told the Keynoter on
Friday that his staff is analyzing
data from around 100 tests con-
Sducted over the past week and
half on airport employees. Early
results, he added, indicate that no
one has actually contracted tuber-
culosis.
"We're still analyzing the
data," Eadie said, but "there's no
indication that anyone has the
active disease. There is no risk of
further exposure."
Although some employees did
test positive for exposure, further
testing revealed that no one had
contracted the disease,
"You may have tuberculosis as
in you may have been exposed to
it," Eadie said. But that doesn't
mean you've got the disease.
Earlier this month, an airport
worker who works in the terminal.
was found to have tested positive
for TB. On April 17, the Health
Department screened 'some 40
terminal employees. Then the fol-
lowing Wednesday they checked
more' employees, many who


requested the screening.
"It's mostly out of an abun-
dance of caution that we're test-
ing this many people," Eadie said.
Eadie said it "takes more than
just casual contact" to pick up
tuberculosis; "prolonged, repeat-
ed and continual exposure" is
required.
"TB is entirely treatable. It
doesn't need to be feared by any-
one," Eadie said. "It's entirely
curable."
TB is a respiratory condition
caused by bacteria. Symptoms
include chronic coughing, some-
times with bleeding, and fever.
It's transmitted person to person
through the air by. coughing,
sneezing or talking in close prox-
u imity.
Eadie said that after the Health
Department found out about the
initial exposure, his staff began
.investigating using "concentric
circles" to identify the origin.
"TB is a disease that's not eas-
ily transmitted. I think in this
case, thdoigh, we are almost cer-
tain we know where the original
contact was. It may be common
knowledge in the community, I'm
beginning to find out."
Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton said county
staff at the airport has not been


impacted by the tuberculosis
scare.
"Some of my employees are
saying it's no big deal. Some are
really concerned," Horton said.
"So far, no Monroe County
employees have been affected."
There are around 20 county
employees at Key West
International Airport at any given
time. That includes Horton's staff,
as well as Sheriff's Office person-.
nel and firefighters.
Horton said the Health
Department has been methodical
in their containment efforts.
"They have been going step by
step through the protocol as far as
testing and treatment go."
Tuberculosis fits into Key
West's history in a sordid and dis-
turbing way.
Carl Tanzer, a German-bom
radiologist, worked at the U.S.
Marine Hospital in Key West in
the 1920s and 1930s, treating
tuberculosis patients.
Tanzer developed an obses-
sion with one patient, Maria
Elena de Hoyos, who eventually
died from the illness'in 1931.
In 1933, Tanzer exhumed her
body and maintained a relation-
ship withthe corpse until he was
found out in 1940. Tanzer's story
remains an integral part of the
ghost -tours in Old Town Key
West.

Sheriff's office makes two drug hauls


Two arrested
in separate
investigations
Keynoter Staff


Keys cops were still sorting it
out on Wednesday following two
hilge but separate drug busts this
week, one in the Lower Keys,
one in the Middle Keys.
Wednesday morning, a 60-
year-old man was jailed after


detectives found 9.1 ounces of
marijuana in his mobile home -
and then another kilogram of the
drug in a later search. Humberto
Nunez, who lives at Lot 96 n
Roy's Trailer Park, is charged
with possession with intent to
distribute.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says it obtained a search
warrant after an undercover
operative made several pot buys
,at the trailer. In the morning


search, around 8:30 a.m., they
reportedly found 191 grams of
marijuana packaged in plastic
bags in the produce drawer of
the kitchen refrigerator, and
another 65 grams in plastic bags
in a counter drawer. ,
A mashed-potato canister,.
found under the bathroom sink
had- a false bottom containing
$2,000 in cash and some
women's gold jewelry. Several
digital scales were also found.
Nunez was jailed, then detec-
tives went back to search some
more. They say they found the

kilo 2.2 pounds of pot hid-
den in a bucket under the trailer.-
The night before, around
11:30 p.m., an anonymous tip
led deputies to arrest Jonathan
Sanchez, 21, at an apartment on
2nd Avenue in Marathon.
The Sheriff's Office says a
tipster called to report drug deal-
ing at the apartment. But follow-
ing a search of the place with the
tenants' permission, Deputy
Bradford Colen found nothing
and left.
However, the tipster called
back and said drug sales were
still going on. So Colen decided
to hang around; he parked his car
out of sight and kept an eye on
the place.
Deputies say he saw a taxi


pull up and Sanchez walk out of
the apartment carrying a black
bag. Colen confronted him and
Sanchez reportedly admitted he
had pot in the bag.
Indeed, deputies say, there
were 100 grams of marijuana in
various packages in the bag -,
as well as 12 grams of cocaine in
various packages, Vicodin,
Oxycontin, Ecstasy, a digital
scale, a cell phone and $738 in
cash.
Sanchez is charged with three
counts of possession of a con-
trolled substance with intent to
sell, possession of cocaine with
intent to sell, possession of mar-
ijuana with intent to sell and var-
ious other drug-related counts.

Arraignments
for Hernandez,
Jacox Thursday'
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Two Florida Keys law offi-
cers facing federal drug-con-
spiracy charges return to
court Thursday for their
arraignments.
Both men Monroe
County Sheriff's Office. cor-
rections officer Shawn
Hernandez' and state wildlife
officer Jonathan Jacox will
remain in federal custody at
least until the arraignment,
where they are expected to,
enter pleas.
At a Thursday hearing in
Miami, a magistrate "accept-
ed the government and
defense's joint stipulation to
pre-trial detention for both
defendants," said a spokes-
woman for the U.S.
Attorney's Office in Miami.
FBI agents arrested Jacox
and Hernandez at the Key


West federal courthouse on
April 17. Both are adcused of'
transporting what they
believed to be drugs for peo-
ple they believed to be drug
traffickers.
However, the operation
was a sting with a federal
undercover operative posing
as a drug dealer.
"They were charged by
complaint with transporting
what they believed to be
cocaine and heroin," said
Alicia Valle -of the U.S.
Attorney's Office. "Shawn'
Hernandez was, involved in
three transportation and
Jacox was involved in two."
Federal charges against the
pair include conspiracy to
traffic in drugs while armed,
and possession of a firearm in
commission of a felony.
Both Jacox, a Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission officer since
2006, and Hernandez, an
employee of the Sheriff's
Office since 2000, are long-
time Keys residents.

Military night flights end


Resident says
sound was like
'Pearl Harbor'
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Covert *- and massively
loud military training over
Key West that's been lasting
into the wee hours ended
Friday, leaving Lower Keys res-
idents with their first good night
of sleep in a week.
"I thought it was Pearl
Harbor. You don't know what it
is. I didn't sleep all night," says
Nancy Loewy, who lives in the
Meadows area of Key West off
Eisenhower Drive.
This particular round of
Special Forces training
involved Naval Special Warfare
Group 4, which is based in
Norfolk, Va. The Special Forces
maintain a training facility on
Fleming Key.
Group 4 spokeswoman Katt
Whittenberger says it was "rou-


tine special-ops training."
Some of it involved a pro-
peller-driven AC-130, which is
designed to provide fire support
in combat zones and is capable
of delivering ordnance and
other supplies to troops in bat-
tle.
The noise from the AC-130
resembles that of a helicopter
due to its four large propellers.
With the recent stir about
increased Navy jet noise in the
Lower Keys from sorties flown
from Boca Chica Field, some
wonder why the Navy would
opt to fly over residential areas
after midnight.
Whittenberger says that's
standard procedure.
"We train as we fight," she
says. "Nobody knows we've
been there until we're gone."
Another plane involved in
the training was the Orion P-
3C. The Navy uses the turbo
prop aircraft:.for land and mar-
itime surveillance and to view
combat zones. It's able to stay


airborne for long periods of
time and its crew can provide
instantaneous updates to troops
on the ground.
Whittenberger says there
were also a number of small
boats involved in the training.
As of late, Lower Keys resi-
dents have ramped up com-
plaints about the noise caused
by F/18 Super Hornets flying
.low over their homes as part of
aircraft carrier takeoff and land-
ing training.
Residents on Geiger Key,
Shark Key and Stock Island,
among others, complain of
noise levels near 150 decibels.
Noise levels are considered
hazardous to hearing above 84
decibels.
Navy brass. and Monroe
County officials have agreed to
participate in facilitated talks
about the jet noise, with a tenta-
tive date set for May 12. The
Navy says the training is essen-
tial, while the county officials
say the Navy isn't concerned
about the quality of life of the
residents.

Last Stand loses


Duck Pond appeal


County closer
'to extending
airport runway
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


ance.
But just because the judge
ruled, the process is hardly over,
says county Airports Director
Peter Horton.


Environmental advocacy
group Last Stand has lost an
administrative appeal aimed at
blocking Monroe County from
going ahead with a runway exten-
sion at Key West International
Airport.
County plans call for extending
the safety overrun on the west end
of the runaway by dumping com-
posite fill into part of a five-acre
salt pond known as the Duck
Pond.
Last Stand maintains the pond
has a lower salinity level than sur-
rounding ponds and serves as
invaluable habitat to rare and
migrating. birds. -
On April 20, state
Administrative Law Judge Donald
Alexander said the county could
go ahead with its plans despite
Last Stand's'lengthy appeal.
Alexander wrote in his ruling,
"By a preponderance of the evi-
dence, the county has established
its entitlement to the requested
modification.... Where conflicting
evidence on the issues was pre-
sented, the more credible and per-
suasive evidence was accepted in
favor the applicant [Monroe
County]."
Last Stand President Al
Sullivan told the Keynoter, "We
lost the suit across the board
because the judge listened to their
science and not ours. We know the
Duck Pond better than anyone else
and we think the county is making
a big mistake. We will be asking
the South Florida Water
Management District to reject the
judge's decision."
Last Stand first objected in
May 2007. The South Florida
Water Management District
approved the county's permits in
August 2008. Thie first appeal
hearing was on Feb. 2, 2009.
The total cost of the extension
project, which includes a similar
upgrade to the east end of the run-
way, is around $12 million, most
of which will be paid by the
Federal Aviation Administration;
passenger fees will pay the bal-


Issue now
heads back
to Water
Management
District


First, it has to go back to the
South Florida Water Management
District. He says a tentative date
for that is sometime in June. Then
the county has to obtain permits
from the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers.
"If that's -not appealed, then
we'd be pretty much ready to go,"
Horton says. But "there's a lot of
potential for appeal opportunities.
Last Stand could appeal it to the
Circuit Court. I certainly hope
they don't."
"We're considering all of those
things," Sullivan says.

doesn't really have anything to
do.
"We have no ordinances, no
resolutions, and only a couple
minor things. Almost everything
can be rolled over until our May
12. meeting," City Manager
Clyde Bumett said.
"There was just not enough
stuff to rent the room and spend
city money that couldn't be
moved to the next council meet-
ing," he said. The city pays an
-hourly rate to Monroe County to
use the government center for
meetings.
Bumett had previously sug-
gested council meetings be held
every three weeks as opposed to
two, but the council was against
that. He said more time in
between meetings would allow
better staff preparation.
"I wouldn't mind if they go
two and a half hours ... so we
have more time to get things
done," he said.
The only business items that
would have been taken up this
coming Tuesday were a request
for a building permit extension,
and a request by staff to schedule
an executive session prior to the
May 12 meeting. .
The next regular City Council
meeting is scheduled for May 12
at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon

Benihana bounces back

Wilma's surge,
market drop

lkahn@keynoter.com

For Mark Hyatt, the crash of
the real estate market the past
three years turned into a bless-
ing in disguise of sorts.
Hyatt owns the Benihana
restaurant at 3501 S. Roosevelt
Blvd. in Key West, and had
planned to shut it down after
tourist season in 2006, raze the
place, and build and sell condo-
miniums.
"Thank God I didn't demo
and start building," he says. "I
was actually developing the
property as 20 high-end condos,
and we know how that went. I
had everything approved -
everything. But I just pulled the
plug when we couldn't get the
pre-sales done."
Now, he's on top of the
world: At a conference in Miami
in February, Benihana Inc.
named him its franchisee of the
year for 2008, beating out 21
other franchised Benihanas

It's all about the music


Singer-songwriters
to turn island into
Nashville South
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

.The Key West Songwriters'
Festival got going almost 15
years ago when a songwriter
from Nashville named Dan
Reid brought the idea to
Charlie Bauer, then the general
manager of the Hog's Breath.
Reid had played bars in the
Florida Keys, and thought Key'
West would be the perfect
place to let country music
songwriters showcase their
music for small audiences.
The first year, eight song-
writers came, and played in
bars around town. This year,
the 14th year of the festival,
there are 135 songwriters com-
ing to perform in more than 30
shows around Key West in
bars, theaters, on the beach and
out on the water. And follow-
ing the songwriters south will
be. dozens of country music


executives, from Nashville,
New York and Los Angeles,
and a few thousand fans.

Opening night party
The Key West Songwriters'
Festival opens on with a party
on the roof of the Crowne
Plaza La Concha Hotel at 430
Duval. St. The welcome-back
celebration for musicians
and music-lovers starts at 6
p.m., with James Slater per-
forming. It's an appropriate
opening act for a festival .that
has e\ol\ed \iith American
country music, %there hit songs
now frequently cross over onto
'pop charts.
Slater crossed over big-time,
when he wrote the song "In My
Daughter's Eyes" for Martina.
-McBride. The song debuted in
November of 2003 and peaked
at No. 4 and No. 3, respective-
'ly, on Billboard's country and
contemporary .music charts.
Slater grew up in the Canal
Zone in Panama, and graduated
from the University of Miami
School of Music. Like a lot of


the singer-songwriters in town
next week, he now makes his
home in Nashville, Tenn.,
where he's represented by
BMI.
If you're there at the top of
the La Concha on Wednesday
night, expect to hear Slater
sing "Key West Address" -
"...give,me a Key West
address, a tattooed waitress and


James Slater

'Key West address'

West Songwriters'
Festival.

a fish that's bigger than the
hole in my net ... a big bottle
of rum, a fine Cuban cigar, life
will take care of the rest, give
me a Key West address..." The
song also includes some less
family-friendly lyrics, with ref-
erences to the back room at the
801 Bar and the Duval Street
establishment known as the .
Scrub Club. Key West Mayor
Morgan McPhersori named the
song the official anthem of Key
West at last year's festival.
The. opening night events
continue on Wednesday with a
party on the small beach at the
Pier House Resort at the bot-
tom of Duval Street starting at
8 p.m. Singer-songwriters per-
forming will be David Lee,
Wynn Vatble and Kylie Sackly
playing the first hour. Chas
Sandford, Kelly Archer and
Roots & Wings play from 9-10
p.m. and Jason White, Jaida
Dreyer and John Paul White
play from 10-11 p.m. The third
event of the night starts at 10
p.m. at the Conch Republic
Seafood Company at 631
Greene St. Expect the party to
go well past midnight.

Big shows
'The best thing about the
Key West Songwriters' Festival
is that most of the performanc-
es are free. Only the biggest
.shows, the ones on May 1 and
2 at the Tropic Cinema, San

Like a lot of the people per-
forming in Key West next
week, Johnson is both a song-
writer and a recording artist
with singles and albums of his
own. And his career path is as
mountainous as any. He came
from the deep South, moved to
Nashville, got a record deal,
recorded songs, lost his record
deal, divorced his wife, hid out
at a friend's house and wrote
songs. He wrote himself back
out of his funk with songs for
George Strait, Trace Adkins,
and a number of other country
music stars.
Johnson recently won song
of the year at the Academy of
Country Music Awards for his
hit single "In Color."

It's getting hot around here


But nude beach
isn't the-answer
to keeping cool
By MARGARET MENGE
L'Attitudes Editor

Interesting lunch on
Monday at Shanna Key in Key
West, sitting next to Key West
mayoral candidate Craig
Cates, who was eating a curry
chicken potpies Cates, before'
he started raking at the pie,
said a few words about the
melee at the candidates' forum
at Salute last week; where
Sloan Bashinsky jumped from
his seat and began waving his
arms about and yelling about a
half-naked woman riding by,
on a bike. You heard about it?
Cates also told the reporter
sitting next to him (who'd
pointed out that he was skip-
ping the lesser offices and
gunning right for the top city
slot) that if you're going to
jump into the skillet, you may
as well turn up the heat... Or if
you're going to get into a skil-
let, it may as well be a hot
one. Or something like.that(!)
After.Julio Avael, sitting
across from me, bellowed at
Michael Haskins about invit-
ing a working reporter/editor
to the lunch, I couldn't very
well go making scribbles in a
notebook.
I skipped over after the
lunch to an Arts Council meet-
ing at the Gato Building,
where the media had been
invited to talk about how best
to send things, and what, any-
way, members of the media
want for their arts-related pub-
lications. Mark Howell of
Solaris Hill told everyone to
stop putting exclamation
points at the end of all the
press releases they send him, .
because they won't, repeat,
won't, make it into either of
his publications. I began by
saying that I was partial to
exclamation -points, but avoid-
ed going into a long explana-
tion there.
Howell also said that he
was told, after last Sunday's'
publication of the topless
woman riding a bike through
the candidates forum, that he
was no longer to run photos of
people who were not properly
covered uo.

Margaret Menge as I
walked
down my street the other day
at 2 in the afternoon and more
turned to see a large (ocksfa or man
standing in his driveway very
close to his Jeep, seeming to
water the Jeep with a hose. It,
was not a hose.
No, someth. g about nude, it's

fit. We'd have to add more
Europeans to our flocks, or at
the very least, flush out some
of the skeeviness.d hair and
South Beach has plenty of
skeeves, sure. But there, it's
different. The beach is very
wide. So you can remove your
top and buurself close off some tan
lines along with the German
girls without guys from Long
Island with spiked hair andyone

close. And you can position
yourself close to one of the
lifeguard stands: Those are.-
career lifeguards, :making 50

gets overly enthusiastic, or
skeevy, at the side of the top
half of a woman uncovered,
they'll step in.
Before the heat comes on.


OK, so it's not here yet, but
it's going to be...those days
when all possibility of deep
thought is obliterated by the
heavy heat. I wrote my friend
George in New York's beauti-
ful Hudson Valley that he
shouldn't feel badly about not
being in the sub-tropics
because according to Yale
geographer/author Ellsworth
Huntington, the highest
amount of mental activity
occurs in climates where the
average outside temperature is
38 degrees Fahrenheit,,with
mild frosts at night. The north
is better, generally, if you need
to get some things thought
through. George wrote back
from the top of the mountain
where he lives to tell me that
they've been having many
Ellsworth Huntington days
lately.
Spring comes hard to the.
Hudson Valley, just barely
breaking through by the end of
May. And on the top of Storm
King Mountain, where George
lives, you can still finds patch-
es of snow under the bushes in
June with which to make
snowballs. Well, almost.
Storm King Mountain is the
prettiest mountain I have ever
seen. You come around a bend
in the tiny village of
Cornwall-on-Hudson and all
of a sudden the mass of it is in
front of you, frequently
shrouded in mist. It has a
round top, and a path that
whirls up its side, from which
you can look straight down on
an island in the middle of the
SHudson River and a crumbling
Scottish castle on that island. I

used to climb to the top of the
mountain and lie on the huge
boulders up there and stare at
the sky as the peaks of many
small mountains dove into and
under the mighty Hudson all
around me. It was a pretty
good place to get things
thought through. And on a
July day, it might be an OK
place for nude sunbathing.

Florida Bay 101,


Eco-Mariner
brings out good
crowds for launch
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A course unveiled on Earth
Day this past Wednesday helps
boaters get to know Florida
Bay without ever getting wet.
The Eco-Mariner course,
can be completed on home
computers in fewer than 90
minutes, said Rob Clift, senior
marine coordinator for the
National Parks Conservation
Association. After taking the.
free course at
www.EcoMariner.org, those
who complete it successfully
may print out a certificate.
The program, or something
like -it, eventually may wind
up as an educational require-
ment for boaters entering the
444,790 acres of Florida Bay
covered by Everglades
National Park, park
-Superintendent Dan Kimball
has suggested.
"'We're really impressed.
with ,what's in the [Eco-
.Maritferl -program," Kimball


told a Key Largo audience ear-
lier this month.

Key Largo
resident and

course dur-
ing a

CLIFT event hosted
by the NPCA
at the Green Turtle Hammock
in Islamorada.
"Just about everybody
could possibly learn some-
thing from it. It's a good
course and an easy thing to
do," parker said. "There have
been some horrible situations
in the bay because people did-
n't know what they were
doing."
Clift, an Upper Keys resi-
dent, said Wednesday's public
unveiling "felt like my gradu-
ation" after spending two
years spearheading develop-
ment of the educational pro-
gram.
"The NPCA believes educa-
tion is the key to protecting
the resource," he said. "When
we started. 'we asked our-


selves, 'What can we do
today?' We didn't want to wait
until the park had the
resources to put something
together."
As part of its updating of
the general management plan
for Everglades National Park,
park staff has cited the need to
protect the bay bottom from
boat groundings and propeller
scarring. Florida Bay's sea-
,grass is essential habitat for all
.kinds of marine life.

Boaters not familiar with

traveler. A follower of Vietnamese
Buddhism, she studied with Thich
Nhat Hanh and- ,

boaters.
The Eco-Mariner program
explains the complex task of
navigating the bay and recom-
mends ways to do it safely
with minimal effect on the
ecq,system.
"It's the only place I know
where you can take a lesson
on how to pole a boat on a flat
without actually going out
with a guide and getting him
to show you," Clift said.
"There are things people
don't realize until they've
been out on the bay," Clift
said. "Like the fact that
entrances and exits of, chan-
nels often are shallow, and
among the most likely places
to hit bottom. That's where
you need to trim your engine."
An Eco-Mariner lesson
advises boaters to look shal-
lows by looking for bottom-
color changes, wading birds,
mangrove roots or calm
waters surrounded by choppy
waves.


chips will be provided free of
charge.
"The idea is to bring the
community into the fire-
house," Malmquist said. "We
want them to see what we do,
who the people are that work
here, and we'll do tours of the
firehouse for anyone interest-
ed in seeing it."
There will be a 50/50 raffle
and donations can be made to
the Professional Firefighters
of Marathon Local 4396.
Malmquist said the union will
use any proceeds from the
event to fund charitable
efforts throughout the year.
He said most of the fire-
fighters will be on hand to
meet and greet the public. The
staff is made up of 21 full-
time firefighters, six part-
timers and five administrative
staff. The city's volunteer staff
has also been invited to join
the festivities.


"It affirmed a lot of what
I've learned out there doing
it," Parker said. "It depends on
a person's experience."
Clift noted there is so much
to know about Florida Bay
that an early version qf the
Eco-Mariner course would
have required eight hours.
"We knew not many people
would going to sit still for that
long," he said. "A big part of
my job was refining it to a
point where people would
learn and still have a positive
experience."
The program has been laud-
ed by Gov. Charlie Crist, a
noted fisherman, who sent
congratulations via video.
"All of the groups we
worked with made positive
contributions," Clift said.
"We're proud that we've been
able to deliver something they
can all support and believe
in."
National park staff has
expressed interest in expand-
ing the Eco-Mariner program
to Biscayne Bay and the Great
Lakes, Clift said.

Coral Shores. (15-10) struggled
in the second game of. a double-
header in the conference tourna-

In the conference semifinal
earlier Wednesday, the Canes
blanked Archbishop Curley, 10-0.
But the trip to the tournament
site at Miami Country Day and
back-to-back games took a toll.
St. Brendan pitcher Tom
Prescott held a good-hitting
Hurricane lineup to just two hits in
the nightcap.
"Our fielding was less than
stellar as well," said head coach
Jeff Meyer. "We committed
some eight errors."
Bobby DePaula and Nick
Biondoletti had the only hits for
the Canes against the Sabres.
".This doesn't take away from
the fact that we won the regular-
season crown" after going 10-0 in
the conference before

Ryan Biondoletti threw a two-

the opener. The senior collected
11 strikeouts in the five-inning
game, with just two walks.

Baseball Conchs open district Monday


Pace then awaits
if Key West
ends up winning
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

To reach the state playoffs for a
second consecutive season, the
Key West High School baseball
team will likely have to defeat
.longtime nemesis Monsignor
Pace.
The Conchs will play Reagan
- which it defeated twice this
season in the opening round of
the District 16-4A tournament at 7
p.m. Monday at Mater Academy
in Hialeah Lakes.
If Key West wins, it will play
top-seeded Pace in the semifinals,
at 7 p.m. Tuesday and will have
to win that game to reach the tour-


nament title game.
The tournament winner and
runner-up both advance to the
regionals.
It had been expected that under
a format that had been approved
by coaches and athletic directors,
Pace, 12-0 in district, would have
to,play only in the championship
game. But the Florida High
Schools Athletic Association said
this week that the format would be
disallowed.
"I think it is a shame that we
went all year under the assumption
that the format was one way and
then, because people didn't like
the way it worked out, they call the
state and the state decides that it
was an improper bracket," said
Key West coach Miguel
Menendez. "We made the switch
to reward the regular-season.


champ and make the regular-sea-
son games more important."
The school that contacted the
FHSAA was Belen Jesuit, said
Key West athletic director Peter
Fraga. Belen will play Mater in
Tuesday's other semifinal game.
The Conchs had expected to play
either Mater or Berlin on Monday
night, setting up a semifinal game
with one of the two on Tuesday
night.
Pace won in :early March at
Key West, 9-4, as pitcher Eddie
Pidermann struck out 13 batters.
The Conchs fared better against
Pidermann three weeks later in
Opa-locka, but still lost, 10-4.
"We just need to hit like we
have been," Menendez said. "If we
do that we will be fine against
him."
Menendez said P.J. Arencibia
will start-against Reagan and that
Drew Rivera would pitch against


Pace. -
The 13-11 Conchs will play
their last regular-season game
tonight at 8 at Rex Weech Field.
Arencibia, Rivera and fellow sen-
iors Nick Bertiaux, Cole Harrison,


Frankie Ratcliff, Andrew
Rodriguez, Jason Zamora 'and
Charlie Walker-Yhap and their
families will be honored before
the game.

After high school, Valdez,
responding to an "Uncle Sam

Army and served in New Jersey,
"guarding the New York bridges.",
When hle returned, he worked
at the Naval Air, Station in
accounting and starred in local
basketball as a set-shot artist, and
in softball as a pitcher.

What kind of umpire was he?
"A good one," he quickly said. "I
was voted one of the top 10
umpires in Florida in 1961. If I
was still umpiring today I'd tell
kids to put their shirttails in, don't
look like a bum up there."
He achieved enduring fame in
1968 when, in response to a con-
test that won him $50, he designed
the city of Key West flag, a framed
version of which adorns his living-

of The Last Supper. The blue-and-

Lady Conchs


travel Tuesday


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Unable to contend with hard-
throwing Cassandra Brown, the
Key West High School softball
team lost to Monsignor Pace, 3-
0, Thursday afternoon in the
District 16-4A title game on
-' Pace's home field in Opa-locka.
The defeat cost the 12-11
Conchs a home state playoff
game.
They will play a regional
quarterfinal game Tuesday night
at 21-7 Archbishop McCarthy.
McCarthy defeated Pembroke
Pines Charter, 2-0, in the 15-4A
title game.
Key West, which had won at
Pace two weeks ago, was confi-
dent when it took the field
Thursday. "My girls were up, we
thought we could take it," said
coach Steve Wells.
But the Conchs got only one
hit against Brown a single by
Madison Disson in the seventh
inning. Brown had nine. strike-
outs.


The Conchs' only scoring
threat came in the first inning
when they loaded the bases with
one out.
Pace scored a run in the sec-
ond and two error-aided runs in
the third, but was shut down the
rest of the way by freshman
pitcher Rachel Quad.
Lauren Wells, who had been
sidelined for more than a: month
with a hamstring injury, returned
to the lineup as a designated hit-
ter but was 0-for 3.
"We didn't play bad, we just
didn't hit the ball," Steve Wells
said: "She [Brown] threw hard.
It ain't the end of the 'world, but
the team we will play Tuesday is
probably better than the one that
just beat us."
The last time the Conchs.
were in the state playoffs was
in 2007, when, under David
Gootee, they won .the district
tournament before losing
at home to Archbishop
McCarthy.

Samantha Rodamer singled

Struyf singled behind her. An
error scored Rodamer and
Sardina knocked in Struyf with
a sacrifice fly.
After Struyf's double in the
seventh, McKenna surprised
the Falcons by bunting for a
hit. The throw to first was wild
and Struyf scored the game-
winning run.
Alli Heller pitched a com-
plete-game three-hitter with
four strikeouts and Struyf,
Kuck and Rodamer each went
2-for-4 at the plate.


Things didn't go so well
Thursday, as the Dolphins fell
behind early and couldn't
recover against a strong
Warriors team. Westminster
scored nine runs in the second
inning.
Marathon's lone hit came
on a fourth-inning double from
Struyf and the lone run came
in the fifth inning. Layne
Doyle walked and scored from
first base after an errant throw.
"They're just a really good
team. To beat them, we would
have had to play our best
game," Murphy said. "They hit
the ball and we made two
errors, but even without that
they were stringing together
hits."

Keys Ultra running event gets closer


Islands-long
races planned
for May 17
Racers are to run across as
many as 40 bridges and through
the Florida Keys island chain
beside the Atlantic Ocean,
Florida Bay and Gulf of Mexico
during the second annual Keys
Ultra-Marathons set for May 17.
Racers can choose from three
competitions on a route stretch-
ing down the Keys' renowned
Overseas Highway: a 100-mile
individual race from Key Largo
to Key West, a,50-mile individual
race from Marathon to Key West


and a 100-mile team relay race
from Key Largo to Key West. All
races are to end at the same finish
line at the south end of Key
West's Smathers Beach.
Organizers expect more than
200 runners to compete along the
scenic course more than twice
as many as the inaugural event in
2008.
"The buzz about the race has
been very positive, and will trans-
late to a lot of fun for the racers
with the additional competition,"
said race director Bob Becker.
"We have many states represent-
ed already, and a runner from
England too."


The 100-mile individual and
team relay races are to begin at 6
a.m. Saturday on the sidewalk at
approximately mile marker 101
oceanside in Key Largo. The 50-
mile ultra is to begin at 10 a.m. at
mile marker 51 across from
Leigh Anne's Coffee House in
Marathon.
At least half the race is to be
run on sidewalks and service
lanes, with the remainder run fac-
ing traffic on wide road shoul-
ders.
The Keys Ultras team relay is
designed for teams of up to six
runners covering the 100 miles.-
