James Hendrick, once Monroe

attorney, may be going to prison
for his 2007 convictions on
obstructing justice and witness
tampering in a Keys corruption
case.
A federal appeals court in
Atlanta upheld Hendrick's con-

A three-

The court sent thq case back to

"It was quite a way to start the

Hendrick told the Keynoter.
He said his attorneys will file

'high


alert'

Swine-flu threat is
called 'fluid' with
'rapid changes'

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

While no confirmed cases
have been identified in Florida
despite a report to the contrary,
Keys health officials are on "high
alert" watching to see if the
swine flu makes its presence
known here.
A TV news report on Tuesday
said a tourist from Mexico who
visited Disney attractions in
Orlando was infected with the
flu. State health officials said
they had no confirmation that's
the case.
But the report that the disease
may have reached Florida
shouldn't necessarily alarm Keys
residents or visitors, says Robert
Eadie, director of the Monroe
County Health Department.
"Is there some reason the dis-
ease would hit us harder than
anyone else? I don't think so,"
Eadie told the Keynoter. "The
only issues that might make us
stand out is the international
nature of our residents and visi-
tors, and our proximity to major
travel destinations."
The Health Department said
in a prepared statement Monday
afternoon:
"At the present time, there are
no reported cases of swine flu in
Monroe County or in the state of
Florida. However, the situation is
fluid and rapid changes are
occurring; therefore, the Monroe
County Health Department is on
high-alert status.
"Increased surveillance activ-
ities have been instituted. The

Tourism officials say the
worldwide outbreak of swine flu,
which the World Health
Organization has deemed a
"public health emergency of
international concern," has yet to
affect travel in the Keys.
"I think it's too bad that the
[European Union's] health com-
missioner made these comments
about avoiding travel to the
U.S.," Tourist Development
Council Director Harold
Wheeler said. "I think that was
very unfortunate and not neces-
sary at this time."
A Monday CNN story.quotes
Andorra Vassiliou as saying peo-
ple "should avoid traveling to
Mexico or the U.S. unless it is
very urgent for them."
International news reports say
more than 60 cases have been
confirmed in the U.S., along
with scores more in Mexico,
where at least 20 people have
been confirmed as dying from it.
The first case of swine flu in
Europe was confirmed Monday
in Spain, where a 23-year-old
man returning from studying in
Mexico last Wednesday tested
positive. A second case from
Spain has since been found, as
has one in Great Britain.
But so far, swine flu has yet to
reach Florida. Only New York,


Reporter Ryan McCarthy
discusses the swine4~lu
threat to the Keys With
Robert Eadie, director of
Monroe County Health
Department, on "Keynoter
News," airing at 7:30
tonight on Comcast
Cable Channel 5 and
repealing at the same
time Thursday.


Ohio, Kansas, Texas and
California have confirmed cases.
"I think this flu scare will
probably have a negative impact
on the airline and cruise ship
industry, but the Keys are a great
drive market destination and we
should not lose a significant
amount of business," Wheeler
said.
If there will be a negative
impact, Key West Chamber of
Commerce Executive Vice
President Virginia Panico and
county Airports Director Peter
Horton say it's yet to arrive.
The Key West chamber tracks
cruise ship figures and said Key
West has not been affected and
isn't expected to be.
Horton on Tuesday received
an e-mail from the Federal
Aviation Administration recom-
mending forming a pandemic flu
plan. He said a number of air-


ports received the same e-mail.
The e-mail says the plan
should account for continuity of
operations, cross-training of per-
sonnel and a plan for handling
sick passengers and segregating
them as necessary.
Officials from Keys chambers
of commerce, as well as Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West President Jodi
Weinhofer and Key West
Innkeepers Association
President Ian Whitney, say
they've yet to hear any news of
businesses or hotels being
adversely affected by the out-
break.
Weinhofer echoed Wheeler's
sentiments about Vassiliou's
comments.
"We're concerned about
everyone's safety, but it may be
premature to avoid travel in the
U.S. when only five states have
cases," she said.
Whitney contacted several of
his inns and guesthouses in Key
West and none reported any
immediate travel changes.
"I haven't heard of any
reports of innkeepers being con-
tacted by future guests about'this
flu strain. We don't expect visi-
tors to Key West to change their
plans, and there's no reason why
anyone should. When it comes to
things like this, I'm more con-
cerned about a lack of perspec-
tive and hype," he said.


Any concerns, call a doctor


SWINE FLU /From I

department is in contact with the
medical community and hospitals
here in the Keys and is monitor-
ing for any reports of the disease.
"Because of the number of
national and international travel-
ers who visit or reside in the
Keys, it is possible the illness
may emerge here. In such an
event, the Monroe County Health
Department, in conjunction with
the Florida Department of Health
and Monroe County, will imple-
ment a pre-arranged plan to
respond to the event.
"The public will be advised of
the details at the time of activa-
tion."
At this point, anti-flu drugs
are not expected to be sent south
to the Keys.
-"The federal' government has


started releasing its store of
antivirals and there are some on
the way to the state of Florida.
Then the state decides on the
proper action. There is a plan in
place, and we are part of that
plan. But it's premature at this
point to say what will happen,"
Eadie said.
He says prevention is easy:
"Basically practice good hygiene
by doing the things your mother
taught you." They are:
Avoid close contact with
people who are. coughing or oth-
erwise appear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth.
Wash hands frequently to
lessen the spread of illness.
People with respiratory ill-
ness should stay home from work
or school to avoid spreading
infections, including influenza, to
others in the community.


If you think you have
influenza, call your health-care
provider and discuss whether you
need to be seen.
The symptoms of swine flu in.
people are similar to the symp-
toms of regular human seasonal
influenza and include fever,
lethargy, lack of appetite and
coughing. Some people with
swine flu also have reported
runny noses, sore throats, nausea,
vomiting and diarrhea.
Swine influenza viruses are
not transmitted by food and a per-
son cannot get swine influenza
from eating pork products. The
infections appear to spread from
person to person. Antivirals can
reduce the consequences of con-
traQting the flu, if taken early.
Questions regarding swine flu
in Monroe County should be
directed to registered nurse Steve
Mason at 293-7521.


Electricity goes out

Most district credit cards OK


But money for
adult ed 'all
over the place"
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The investigator hired to
probe possible misspending by
Monroe County School
District employees says most
district credit card transac-
tions appear clean but more
questions are surfacing in the
already scrutinized Adult
Education Department.
Forensic accountant
Richard Fechter told the
School Board Tuesday that he
took a statistical sample of
more than 400 purchases made
with the district's 93 credit
cards over the past two years.
He said about 25 to 30 pur-
chases, made with about 20
cards, warrant closer looks
based on a questionable ven-
dor, price, description of the
item or if it could potentially
be a personal; item purchased
with school funds.
"We ask, 'Does this [pur-
chase] make sense?' And if it
didn't on its face, then we flag
it for follow-up," Fechter said.
"It may be perfectly accept-
able."
Fechter said a look at large
purchases at stores like Best
Buy, Sears and Radio Shack
caused 50 more transactions to
be flagged, although he said
there doesn't appear to be any

Bicyclist struck,
killed in Key West

A bicyclist struck by a car on
11th Street at Flagler Avenue in
Key West around 4 p.m.
Monday has died, according to
the Key West Police
Department.,
Police spokeswoman Alyson
Crean said, "It looks like he ran
the stop [sign] at 11th Street and
was struck by an automobile.
We got the word that he did not
survive."
Police didn't release the
name of the bicyclist or the driv-
er of the car, citing incomplete
reports.

misspending patterns on any
one card.
"It's looking more and.
more like an isolated case" of
wrongdoing, board Chairman
Andy Griffiths said..
" That case involves former
Adult Education Coordinator
Monique Acevedo, who,
according to finance records
and investigators, purchased
thousands of dollars of items
that were never delivered to
her department.
Those items included sever-
al DVD box sets, suits and
other clothing, expensive fur-
niture and other merchandise
that were reported as "text-
books" and "supplies" in dis-
trict electronic finance
records.
State Attorney Dennis Ward
said he could file criminal
charges against Acevedo in the
next week. Acevedo, the wife of
Superintendent Randy Acevedo,
resigned just after allegations
surfaced on March 3.
Prosecutors and state audi-
tors are also looking into


about $100,000 reportedly
missing in tuition for adult
education classes that
Monique Acevedo reportedly
oversaw, or handled the cash
tuition fees for, since 2005.
However, Fechter said
irregularities stretch back fur-
ther and need to be analyzed if
the board eventually wants to
sue to recover any possible
stolen funds.
His research shows the
Adult Education Department
deposited $33,000 in fees into
the district's general revenue
fund in 2000, only $14,000 in
2001 and then close to nothing
in 2002. The department also
overspent its budget some
years and then left federal
funds unspent other years.
"It's not consistent,"
Fechter said. "It's sort of all
over the place."
Fechter said he has also
nearly completed his initial
investigation into allegations
employees might have pur-
chased refundable airline tick-
ets, drove to events and then
cashed the tickets in or. used
them for personal trips.

Fechter said he would inter-
view Key West travel agents
Donna Golan this week. Golan
told The Reporter she quit
handling district airline travel
because administrators were
"difficult to work with" and
because she waited for long
periods of time to be paid by
purchase orders.
Fechter also said he briefly
examined credit card purchas-


es in the maintenance depart-
ment based on an anonymous
letter describing construction
material purchased with
school funds that were used
for non-school projects.
He didn't find any misuse,
although he said a detailed
investigation is beyond his
scope and requires someone
with knowledge of the con-
struction industry.

Coaches: 'Sports cutbacks not a bad thing'


By KEVIN WADLOW
and DICK WAGNER
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys prep sports
teams, which may rack up more
long-distance miles than many
other programs in the state, will
travel less for the next two years.
A mandatory statewide cut-
back in the schedules of most
sports programs was ordered
Monday as a cost-saving measure
in the current recession.
Directors of the Florida High
School Athletic Association, on a
9-6 vote, approved the reduction
measure at a board meeting in
Gainesville.
Football and competitive
cheerleading will not be affected.
Baseball, softball and basket-


ball schedules will be trimmed
from a maximum of 25 regular-
season games to 20. Other sports,
like wrestling and lacrosse, will
lose two to three meets a season.
Monroe County School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, an FHSAA director,
cast one of the nine votes in favor
of the schedule reduction.
"It wasn't a fun vote,"
Acevedo. said. "It's something
that had to be done but nobody's
happy about it."
"The FHSAA recognizes that
schools are facing tough financial
times," he said.
With school budgets shrinking
because of the national economy,
sports travel likely will be cut for

many teams.
"We want to make sure that no
one gets an unfair advantage,"
Acevedo said. "Rural schools
would be at a big competitive dis-
advantage."
Without the limits, schools in
populous areas with short travel
times could play significantly
more games than other schools,
creating an' experience edge at
playoff time, he said.
The reduced schedules for all
.760 FHSAA member schools
will be in effect for two school
years. FHSAA officials said the
goal is to return to this year's sea-
son limits when the economy
improves.
Monroe County coaches said
they understand the reasons for
the change.
"Having to cut our games
down from 25 to 20 will save us
some money, but living in the
Keys, we still will come out on


the short end," said Key West
High School basketball coach
Paul Davis, who graduated from
Marathon High School.
"It makes scheduling games a
little easier now that we have
seven teams in our district, plus
the games with Marathon and
Coral Shores," Davis said. "'I
think JV programs will suffer the
most. Varsity teams from Miami
may not choose to bring their JV
teams so they can save money by
traveling in vans instead of
school buses."
Paul Grewe, longtime softball
coach at Coral Shores, said,
"We've been ahead of the curve.
For the last two or three years,
we've been playing 18 or 19
games in the regular season.
That's enough.
"We've still got weeks when
we're playing two or three
games," Grewe said. "I don't
think this is a bad thing."'


"This setup, for the next two
years, will force more emphasis
on growth on the practice field
and less game time pounding on
the bodies of our athletes," said
Key West girls soccer coach Scott
Paul. "With the crew we have,
young and inexperienced, this
may be what we need, if not what
we want, in the realm of going
with the flow."
Jason Clifford, the Conch
boys soccer coach, said, "I think I
should have cut back the sched-
ule 25 percent the last two years
just to help the team grow and
learn to play. We could have used
more time between the games."
Most varsity sports in Florida
will see a 20 percent reduction in
games next year, and junior varsi-
ty games will be cut by 40 percent.
Key West High School gener-
ally is recognized as the school
with the most arduous sports trav-
el schedule in Florida.


Jury convicted Hendrick


HENDRICK / From 1

tence instead because "no other
defendant or other person
involved in this offense will
receive any prison time as a result
of their involvement."
Federal prosecutors Christopher
Clark and Brenda Morris had
sought punishment of 46 to 57
months in prison.
In February 2007, a federal
jury convicted Hendrick, now 61,
on all four charges for his role in
an attempted coverup of a bribery
scheme involving a Marathon


hotel project.--------
His convictions came without
the testimony of his one-time
close friend, former county
Mayor Jack London, who died
before trial after pleading guilty
to filing a false tax return for not
claiming the $29,000 bribe as
income. London had admitted
that Hendrick helped steer the
bribe to him with the help of a
lobbyist.
The case grew from a long
FBI investigation that uncovered
the $29,000 bribe paid in 1997 to
London, the mayor then. London
used his influence to win zoning


approval for a stalled 79-room
hotel project called Hall's Resort,
which is now The Hammocks at
mile marker 47.5 bayside.
Hendrick got no money.
By the time the FBI had evi-
dence of the bribe, the five-year
federal statute of limitations for
bribery had expired. But the feds
pursued what they could and won
the cooperation of Randy Hilliard,
a Miami Beach political consult-
ant who paid the bribe after col-
lecting $82,500 in fees from
developer Marvin Rappaport.
Hilliard, dubbed the Prince of
Darkness in Miami-Dade politi-
cal circles, testified with immuni-
ty that the bribe was orchestrated
by London and Hendrick. At the
time, Hendrick was the county
attorney and a partner in a law
firm with U.S. Magistrate Judge
Hugh Morgan.
While cooperating with the
federal government, Hilliard
recorded phone conversations
and in-person conversations with
Hendrick.
In one self-incriminating
statement, Hendrick told Hilliard:
"I'm sure no one would counsel
me to sit here and talk with you
because it would be considered
witness tampering."
Rappaport, who built the hotel
as a Hampton Inn before it
became The Hammocks, was
never charged.

Shakeup


at USI


Radio

Marcus, Ryno
are gone from
the airwaves
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

There appears to be some on-
air static at the Big Pine Key
office of US 1 Radio and its sister
stations.
Regular listeners of US1
Radio (104.1-FM), which bills
itself as the most listened to sta-
tion in the Keys, may have
noticed that news reporter Ezra
Marcus and Mark "Ryno" Masca,
from the "Biz Baz" morning call-
in show with Leigha Fox, are no
longer on the air.
Also gone is "Cruisin' with
Grusin," a one-hour Sunday
morning talk show focusing on
local issues. Its last show was last
Sunday.
"I think that the company has
had to cut back. They had to let
the part-timers go," host Richard
Grusin said.
Marcus, who is out of town
and unavailable for comment,
reportedly was laid off.
Masca, on the other hand, told
the Keynoter he was fired for
"managerial differences" follow-
ing an altercation with an ad
salesman, who reportedly also
was let go. In addition to co-host-
ing "Biz Baz," Masca was a pro-
gram manager and operations
director.
Masca, hired in May 2008,
says the overall cuts affect about
six part-time employees.
Vox Communications, which
also has holdings in the
Northeast and Texas, owns US 1
Radio as well as Conch Country
98.7-FM and the unmanned
WAVK, an adult contemporary
station Ifased in Marathon.
General manager and partner
Kevin LeRoux declined com-
ment on the personnel changes.

Keys Opinion


Delaying tactics

no longer acceptable
A disturbing pattern is emerging at Florida Keys Community
College that should be addressed by trustees before things get
out of hand.
The agenda for Monday's meeting was not available until 1
p.m. the day of the meeting.
This violates state law, and the board attorney, Buck Devane,
isn't the ultimate source of interpreting Florida statute, as some
of the trustees seem to believe.
There's already been one official complaint filed with State
Attorney Dennis Ward.
And there ought to be more complaints lined up if this prac-
tice of withholding critical information continues.
Most members of the public, frankly, pay too little attention
to the community college, which by the way changed its
name at an "emergency" meeting last month. Only, it turns out
it wasn't such an emergency and the name change isn't going
to happen this year after all.
And most members of the public were not aware the govern-
ing board of the college was supposed to do a performance
review of college president Jill Landesberg-Boyle.
And that the review is limited to one form that all five
trustees are to receive in time to complete and return to the
board chair "10 days prior to the board meeting regularly
scheduled in April of each year."
Well, that didn't happen. And it means the president's per-
formance was not evaluated by the trustees at Monday's meet-'
ing. And it's unclear when that critical assessment will be
scheduled.
Timing, as they say, is everything and there is a peculiar ele-
ment to this delay in the agenda and documents getting to the
trustees in time to perform their duty.
Longtime FKCC trustee Carey Goodman's term expires at
the end of May. She has challenged the president and asked
tough questions at trustee board meetings.
If the evaluation is postponed long enough, perhaps
-Gdoodman's -assessment will be moot and so will Goodman's
tough questions abou-the-hsgsubsidy and other matters
being brought back for renegotiation wit theboard--__
This time, the delay backfired, since a $3,000 housing
stipend that was on the agenda for action Monday wound up
being postponed by the trustees who got it too late to prop-
erly review.
The state siatute~-equiesTFKCC to make publicly available
the board agenda and related-b acmktrmaterial "at least seven
days before the event."
Trustees and the public demand better from FKCC's presi-
dent and her staff.

Student-built home is extra special


EDITOR:
Thank you to everyone for their outpouring of
love at the groundbreaking ceremony for my
Habitat for Humanity home. I know there were
many events happening and I really appreciate all
who attended, and all that were there in spirit.
I cannot express enough gratitude to the
Habitat for Humanity organization for giving me
the opportunity to have. my first real home. This
will be the first time in my entire life that I have
lived in a real house, and it's even better that this
house will be my home. Even though my daugh-
ter does not like crowds (for those who weren't
there, she was a bear at the ceremony), she wakes
up every day asking me a question about the
house. Sometimes, she just says, "Mommy, we
got a house," in a quiet voice that shows her
amazement and happiness.
The fact that I am receiving a house built by
the students at Marathon High School, from where
I graduated, makes it that much more amazing.
What an incredible service learning project for our


students to take part in. To think that there are stu-
dents leaving high school who have had the expe-
rience of-building a home incredible.
Thank you to the many School District staff
members who played an integral role in making
this project happen and especially Glenn Naklicki
and Mark Hooper, who have worked firsthand
with the students on the Habitech project -
which will be our home.
Again, thanks to Habitat for partnering with
our county. What you have done for the students
in our schools will never be forgotten. This has
had a positive impact for all of our Marathon stu-
dents involved.
Not only can the students at Marathon High
School relish in their accomplishments, but
thanks to this, I am able to continue to educate
the children at Stanley Switlik Elementary
School, where I teach. I am indebted to this coun-
ty and will not let our students down.

What are they smoking in Tallahassee?


EDITOR:
Recent headlines have left me wondering
what our state legislators have been smoking
what's been added to their drinking water.
Item: Dissolve the Department of
Community Affairs (HB 7049).
Item: Abolish county clerks (HB 1121).
Item: Emasculate the Public Service
Commission so that the telephone companies can
arbitrarily raise their rates, and get rid of the con-
sumer protection department (SB 2626; HB 1465).
Item: Allow drilling in Florida offshore


waters. (CS/CS/CS/HB 1219).
These appear to indicate that most of our leg-
islators have given up all pretense of representing
anyone but deep-pocketed campaign contribu-
tors. They smack of a level of influence peddling
that would make even ousted Illinois Gov. Rod
Blagojevich cringe. All the while, our "see no
evil, hear no evil" top cop, our state attorney
general, remains silent.
Can anyone understand why I'm mad as hell?

Wigington doesn't show what she's for


EDITOR:
Let's see. Monroe County Commissioner
Wigington is against the Naval Air Station
flights and she is opposed to a clothing-optional
beach. Hmmm, some of us are desperately try-
ing to figure out what this.lady is actually for.
And now she refers to herself as a "self-pro-
claimed prude?"
I thiqk Ms. Wigington needs a reality check:
Monroe County voters didn't really vote for
her; they voted against her opponent. That's

Keep the pressure on
EDITOR:
This putrid mess in the Monroe County School
District reeks of corruption and incompetence.
The Keynoter is doing a brilliant job of what the
best newspapers have done since Gutenberg
invented the printing press: Probe, dig and expose.
Your news coverage and editorials on the
schools mess are Pulitzer Prize quality. Keep it up
Keep on applying heat to the feet of this disgusting

Trulock said it's unclear
whether the money will be avail-

"If they start sending me

A push to drastically change
Florida laws on offshore drilling
passed in the Florida House of
Representatives this week but
seemed to run aground as sena-
tors and the governor raised
doubts.
"I'm not receptive to it," state
Senate President Jeff Atwater
told the Miami Herald.
Such a "significantly impor-
tant issue" should not have been
presented in the final stages of the
60-day legislative session that
ends this week, Atwater said.
Gov. Charlie Crist also said
the "lateness of the hour" trou-


bled him.
To take effect, the bill would
need to pass both the state House
and Senate and then avoid a veto
by the governor.
The House passed a bill that
proposes to loosen state rules on
offshore drilling, and would
allow exploration from 3 to 10
miles of the state coastline.
Republicans generally supported
it; Democrats mostly opposed it.
Monroe County Rep. Ron
Saunders (D-Key West) was on
the losing side of the 70-43
House vote.
"I can't support allowing any-
thing that would threaten the
Keys coral reef," Saunders said.


"We managed to beat [the bill]
up pretty good" during debate, he
said.
Saunders said the bill sponsor,
Rep. Dean Cannon (R-Winter
Park) tried to assure him that no
drilling would be allowed near
the Keys.
"Show me where it says that
in the bill," Saunders replied.
Cannon, designated as House
Speaker in 2010, told the Herald
that he would continue to press
for the bill's passage.

Court area of Key West.
The $3,000 the college
trustees are being asked to spend
on Landesberg-Boyle's housing
could go toward rent, a mortgage,
property taxes, utilities and main-
tenance.
A housing stipend was not
included in Landesberg-Boyle's
original contract, signed in
August 2007, because a private
donor was footing the bill.
Devane said that a contract
amendment is necessary because
the original agreement did
include money for housing,
regardless of the source.
Devane told the board that the
amendment is "an accurate
reflection of what was intended"
in Landesberg-Boyle's initial
contract.
Currently, Landesberg-Boyle
is paid $159,000 in annual salary
plus a benefit packaged valued at
$37,500 per year. She also
received $20,000 in relocation
costs when she moved to the


An amended contract that
would pay Florida Keys
Community College President
Jill Landesberg-Boyle $3,000 per

postponed by the board of

Two board members com-
plained they received the con-
tracts too late to review in time
for Monday's meeting.The
amendment was proposed by
FKCC board attorney Buck
Devane. But board members
Kim Bassett and Carey Goodman
said they only received the con-
tract change hours before the
meeting with no time to thor-
oughly review the document.
Landesberg-Boyle previously
received a housing subsidy paid
for by a private donor, but that
money has run dry.
When the vote on the amend-
ment came up, Goodman ques-
tioned the chair: "When was this
distributed?"
Bassett said she got the docu-
ments at "1 o'clock," Monday,
which brought this response from
Goodman: "I can't vote to sup-
port something I haven't had rea-
sonable opportunity to look at."
Devane told the board that.

with her husband and two chil-
dren, incurs monthly housing

rear of the property.
Flames erupted from the roof
of that building just after 8 p.m.
Saturday. The fire burned bright
initially, but firefighters arrived
quickly and had the blaze'under
control within 30 minutes.
No workers were on the site
during the fire and no one was
injured, according to the
Sheriff's Office. Still, strong
winds led police to evacuate
homes to the west of the flames.
Traffic was stopped in both
directions at the oceanside mile
marker 51 site, adjacent to the
Wooden Spoon restaurant, for
around an hour. That's because
the only hydrant available was
across the street and firefighters
ran a hose to the fire from there.

traffic once the fire was extin-
guished and cleanup of the scene
began.

Keys from Pennsylvania.
The Florida. Keys Educational
Foundation, the college's fund-
raising branch, has expressed a
desire to acquire permanent
housing for FKCC's president.
Deborah Solow, who sits on
the foundation board, told the
trustees, "A president's house, in
the education arena, is nothing
new unless you don't have one.
We're not necessarily looking
into buying a house in this mar-
ket. There are people who are
willing to donate real estate."
Devane said that a house
could be donated, but it may not
be appropriate for "presidential
housing."
Goodman asked, "Who's
going to determine suitability?"
The May board meeting
scheduled falls on Memorial
Day, May 25. There wasn't a date
set as an alternate for the May
board meeting, so it is unclear
when a vote will be taken on
approving the contract amend'-
ment and Landesberg-Boyle's

College late with board agendas


The public has
little time to
digest issues
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Community
College Board of Trustees con-
ceded Monday night that the col-
lege isn't giving the public much
.notice about what it's up to.
"We really need to see if we
can get the agendas out sooner,"
board Chairman Ed Scales said.
"There's a statute Buck [Devane,
the college attorney,] and I dis-
cussed that may or may not
apply."
Scales said he received a
meeting agenda on Friday, but
there were none available to the
general public either physically
or on the college's Web site as
late as four hours before


Monday's board meeting began
at 5 p.m.
The statute to which Scales
refers is part of the Florida
Administrative Procedural Act,
120.525. It says: "An agenda
shall be prepared by the agency
in time to ensure that a copy of
the agenda may be received at
least seven days before the event
by any person in the state who
requests a copy."
State Attorney Dennis Ward
said the statute applies to the col-
lege board.
College spokeswoman Lydia
Estenoz said, "I don't know what
the deal is. It [the agenda] was
supposed to be posted on Friday."
She .added, "It's something
that we try to have out there but I
don't think it's required." She
said Debbie Leonard, director of
college President Jill Landesberg-
Boyle's office, "has never had the


agenda out that early."
It appears Leonard did send
Monday's agenda to board mem-
bers late Friday afternoon around
6 p.m., but it wasn't made avail-
able to the public until hours
before the board gathered.
Board member Carey
Goodman, whose term expires at
the end of May, said, "It seems
they get later and later."
Monday, Landesberg-Boyle
told the board, "We'll try to do a
much better job."
This isn't the first time there's
been an apparent problem in the
college's ability to correctly post
agendas of its meetings.
On April 11, a Saturday
morning, the board met to vote
on changing the name of the col-
lege to The College of the
Florida Keys. That sent the mat-
ter to the Legislature but law-
makers aren't taking action on it
this session.
Still, there was an .issue with.


the public notice of the meeting.
In an e-mail Landesberg-
Boyle sent to the Keynoter dated
April 8; the subject line reads,


This isn't the
first time
there's been
an apparent
problem in the
college's ability
to correctly
post agendas
of its meetings.

"Notice of emergency meeting
of the FKCC board of trustees."
Florida statute 120.525 says
emergency meetings are to he


held only "if an agency finds that
an immediate danger to the pub-

Changing the name of the col-
lege doesn't appear to fit the bill.
At that meeting, held the day
before Easter Sunday, board Vice
Chairwoman Anne Henderson
belabored the point that the
meeting, should be considered
"special" as opposed to "emer-
gency," as the college president
termed it.
At least one person, former
college employee Yury
Rodriguez, who was fired in
December 2007 for "gross insub-

Rodriguez runs a Web site, www

FKCC sues city


over stormwater


Keynoter Staff


Florida Keys Community
College has filed a civil suit
against the city of Key West
regarding stormwater utility fees.
The college is asking for a
declaratory judgment and,
according to college attorney
Buck Devane, the college is look-
ing for between $120,000 and
$140,000.
The lawsuit was filed April 27
in Monroe County Circuit Court
and a summons was issued that
same day. It is nbt clear if the city
has been served with the suit.
In November, John Kehoe, col-
lege vice president of finance and
administration, told college board
members that since 2005, the col-
lege has mistakenly paid the city
$160,529 for the utility service.


At that time, it was deter-
mined a refund was in order.
In a letter sent to the city in
November, Devane wrote: "There
exists no contract between the city
and FKCC obligating FKCC to
pay a user fee. In the absence of
such an agreement, sovereign
immunity bars collection of a
stormwater fee from FKCC, which
is a state entity."
FKCC further contends that
its stormwater is handled by an
on-site system of swales and
injection wells.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
could not be reached for com-
ment Tuesday, but an employee
in the city's legal department said
she was unaware of the suit filed
by FKCC.

When you plant any tree, Keys Energy Services (KEYS) asks that you consider the presence of power lines. Trees touching power lines can
disrupt service to the entire area. In fact, the number one cause of power outages in the Lower Keys is tree limbs intruding into electrical lines.
KEYS has an aggressive tree trimming program, but trees lose their beautiful shape after trimming. The best idea is to prevent the need for
trimming. So, we recommend that you plant trees a significant distance from power lines and allow them to develop fully and beautifully.
When you purchase a tree, ask how tall it. will be when mature. A general rule to follow is:
If the mature tree is up to 20 feet, plant the tree 6-10 feet from power lines. 1;9
If the mature tree is 20-40 feet, plant the tree 8-14 feet from the power lines. 1,4
If the mature tree is 40 feet or caller, plant the tree 15-20 feet from power lines. 4 __ _'_

Water conservation

A water conservation summit
takes place all day today at the
Marathon Government Center.
The event, part of the
Keyswide Sustain-Ability Project
of Florida Keys Green Living
S and Energy Education, takes
place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Following are GLEE's talking
points for the event:
The Keys are on a fixed
water withdrawal and have to
create our own if we need more.
When water demand doesn't
" match supply, the reverse osmo-
sis machines turn on, hiking our
water costs.-


The cheapest gallon of
water is the gallon we don't
waste. Current building codes
still use 1998 standards for water
efficiency technologies.
Sewer bills are determined
by water use. If water use is
reduced, so are sewer bills.
Power is needed to pump
water from our aquifer, treat it for
drinking, distribute it, use it and
treat it for disposal. If we reduce
our potable water usage, we
reduce our collective carbon
footprint.
Speakers from the South
Florida Water Management
District, Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority, Pacific Institute,
Alliance for Water Efficiency and
more are scheduled.

SunVest divests Keys


Summit purchases
Sombrero Resort,
Mangrove Marina
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Sombrero Resort and
Marina's new owner plans exten-
sive renovations to the Marathon
property in the coming months.
Summit Development, an East
Coast real estate company that spe-
cializes in distressed properties,
purchased the resort as well as the
Mangrove Marina in Tavemier.
Summit Development says it
paid about $13 million to pur-
chase both properties in a deal
that closed March 31.
The properties' previous own-
ers, SunVest Communities USA
LLC of Hallandale, had acquired
them last year in a foreclosure
action against Cay Clubs, a resort
management and development.
company that had once planned
to convert those properties to
upscale destination resorts.
Summit Development's plans
are less elaborate than those Cay
Clubs outlined during the real
estate boom, when several of
Sombrero Resort's 1960s-era units
were sold in the mid-six figures.
- Nevertheless, the company
plans to sink considerable
resources into bringing both
properties up to date, says Robert
Chamey, who represents the new
owners in Florida.
Robert Charney's brother,
Felix Charney, is president of


Summit Development, a compa-
ny founded in 1981 that's based
in Southport, Conn., with offices
in Chappaqua, N.Y., and now
North Palm Beach.
Orion Bank, which has 23
branches in Florida, is providing
financing for the acquisition and
renovation of the two properties.
The two major Keys purchases
mark the company's first foray
into Florida real estate, but they
likely won't be its last.
Summit Development, which
opened a North Palm Beach
office about 15 months ago, plans
to pursue other opportunities
throughout South Florida, includ-
ing the Keys.
"This is not a single transac-
tion," Charney says. "It's just the
first of what we hope is many" in
South Florida.
But Chamey declined to say
whether the company is planning
to buy other SunVest holdings.
A phqne call to SunVest last
week requesting information
about its Keys properties was met
with the response that the compa-
ny no longer owned the former
Cay Clubs properties.
Other former SunVest proper-
ties include Marathon Marina
and the building that houses
Frosty's restaurant formerly
Cabots on 11th Street Ocean.
Frosty's Ed Frost says he's trying
to put together a group to buy the
property that contains the water-
front restaurant he's run for more
than a year.
Summit Development plans to


be an active manager of its Keys
properties. Charney says he's
been on site in the. Keys every
week since the:sale, went through.
Sombrero Resort and Marina
has 124 one-bedroom condo-
style units in multi-story build-
ings arranged around a pool and
tiki bar. It also has several two-
bedroom units in separate one-
and two-story buildings. It has 54
slips in its marina, as well as a
boat ramp.
When Summit purchased the
resort and marina property,
Chamrney says, the company also
acquired about half of the resort's
units. The rest are privately
owned. Summit will manage the
rental program.
Chamey says he wants to get
the resort back in shape -
"We're working very hard to
bring it back to its former luster"
- and set up specials that attract
families, both locals and visitors.
The company has already ren-
ovated and reopened the resort's
Latitudes restaurant as an authen-
tic Italian bistro featuring pastas
and pizza. Other renovation work
will start as soon as planning and
permitting allows, with the goal
of being complete by winter sea-
son, Chamey says.
The bayside Mangrove Marina
has a pretty low profile but a lot to
offern- 130 boat slips, rack stor-
age, fuel dock, boat ramp, boat
yard and ships' store, plus facili-
ties for liveaboards. Charney says
renovation work there will also
start this summer.
The two properties employ
about 60 workers, he says..

Coral Shores
in title game
for the district
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


While the Coral Shores
offense worked to scratch out
runs Monday, Coral Shores
pitcher LeDarius Sanders made
sure a few were plenty.
Sanders threw a complete-
.game shutout in the District 16-
3A semifinal as the Hurricanes
beat Archbishop Carroll, 4-0, to
advance to the 7 p.m. Thursday
district title game at Founders
Park in Islamorada.
"Jed was wonderful," said
Hurricane head coach Jeff
Meyers, using the junior left-
hander's nickname. "When yobi
get a three-hitter with 10 strike-
outs, .you can win a lot of
games."


Senior Ryan Biondoletti led
the offense with a 3-for-3 night,
including a sharply hit double
down the leftfield line that drove
in the Canes' first run.
"It was a curve on the out-
side," smiled Biondoletti.
Biondoletti triggered the
game's signature play, a double
steal with two outs in the bottom
of the fifth inning.
Jake Lane, who had a pinch-
hit double, stole home on the
play for a 3-0 lead.
"I felt we needed a run right
there. If'went up 3-0, I knew
we'd be in a pretty good spot,"
said Meyers, who called the
play. "We. got our smartest base
runner [Biondoletti] on first, and
our fastest guy on third."
With two outs, Biondoletti
took a huge lead off first, daring
the Carroll defense to try to pick
him off first. On the throw to the

Marathon Dolphins crush Palmer Trinity


Baseball team
advances on
in district play
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
baseball team built a huge early
lead and held on for a 14-8
District 16-2A tournament win
Monday in Miami.
The Dolphins' offense
exploded for 11 runs in the first
three innings and defeated
Palmer Trinity School for the
second straight year in -tourna-
ment play.
Marathon loaded the bases in
the first inning and Joey
Gonzalez delivered a two-out
double to score three runs. Jose
Lopez singled him home to give
the Dolphins a 4-0 lead.
"It was nice to jump out to a
four-run lead in a win or go
home game," coach Luis Leal
said.


The Dolphins tacked on three
more in the second to make it 7-
0.
Jake Sjursen singled, Toby
Eigner walked and Tyler
Roussin was hit by a pitch to
once again load the bases. Luis
Gonzalez singled to score two
runs and Lopez doubled home
another.
Four more run in the third
inning put the game out of reach.
Lopez notched his third RBI in
three innings by doubling home
Joey Gonzalez, and seventh-
grader Yoniel Esquirol followed
with a three-run home run to
make it 11-0.
Palmer scored four runs in the
fourth inning to make it 11-4,
and the Dolphins responded with
three in the bottom of the fifth to
make it 14-4.
Another run in the sixth and
three more in the seventh made
the final score look much closer
than it actually was. Eigner
pitched a solid complete game
with- 10 strikeouts and just one
walk.

Shortstop Fabian Placencia
capped the scoring, coming
home on a throw to first after

A strong easterly wind blew
throughout game, coming in
from right field and turning
every pop fly into an adventure.
"It moved the ball a bunch,"

Nick Biondoletti, who gloved
two high shots.
"We only had one error in

tion but Sanders shrugged off
the pressure and wind to zero in

"They only had one guy who
was pretty fast, but the other
ones didn't bother me," he said.
"It feels great to get the win."
Sanders, a junior left-hander,
increased his team strikeout lead
to 65 (in 56 innings), and low-
ered his earned-run average to
below 1.5.
The victory moves the
Hurricanes (16-10) against top
seed Gulliver Prep (21-5), who
beat Ransom Everglades, 9-0, in
the other semifinal.
"We'll go at 'em," Ryan
Biondoletti said. "We'll play
them tough like we've been
playing everyone else lately."
As a district finalist, Coral
Shores will advance. to the

Ratcliff K seals the win


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


On its way to an apparent easy
victory after scoring four runs in
the first inning and two in the sec-
ond, the fourth-seeded Key West
High School baseball team had to
hang on to defeat fifth-seeded
Reagan, 7-5, in the District 16-
4A tournament Monday night at
Mater Academy in Hialeah
Gardens.
Reagan, which had lost two
lopsided games to the Conchs in
the regular season, had two runs
in and the bases loaded in the top
of the seventh inning when relief
pitcher Frankie Ratcliff ended the
game with a strikeout.
The victory sent the Conchs


(15-11) into Tuesday night's
semifinal game against top-seed-
ed Monsignor Pace, a game com-
pleted too late for today's paper.
Key West needed to defeat Pace
to reach the state playoffs.
Against Reagan, Key West
started strong in the first.
Nolan Thomas drove in two
runs with a single, and two more
later scored on a throwing error
by Reagan pitcher Yoan
Martinez. The Conchs made it 6-
0 in the second on a two-run sin-
gle by Cole Harrison. That came
after two stolen bases by Nick
Bertiaux and one by Ratcliff.
P.J. Arencibia pitched a strong
game for the Conchs he struck


out six but the Bison chipped
away with a run in the third and
two in the fourth. D.J. Elomina
drove in Key West's seventh run
with a single in the third, but the
Conchs were shut out on one hit
the last three innings.
After Reagan (10-14) led off
.with a single in the seventh, Key
West coach Miguel Menendez
called on Ratcliff, who had been
playing shortstop, to relieve
Arencibia. Ratcliff struck out the
first batter he faced (he would
eventually strike out the side), but
Reagan put together two runs on
two hits, a hit batter and an error
at third by Elomina.
Aside from that error, the
Conchs were flawless in the field.

The 37-year-old finished third
in 43:38, behind winner Marlene
Persson, 39, of Deerfield Beach

Raton, at 41:51.
Persson *said conditions were
so good Saturday that she found
herself filling up on water out of
habit during the race.
"I was drinking water at every


station and it was almost" too
much, she said. "You can't ask
for better conditions for the

Jason Bodnar said no matter if
the heat was sweltering and the

wind Saturday it couldn't

"That was more special, see-
ing her do that," he said.

"I'm just happy to be out here
running and place," sh6 said.
. Jason's fear of bridges has
been well-documented, so it's no
surprise he wanted to get off the
Middle Keys span as fast as pos-
sible, toss on that kilt and enjoy
some post-race entertainment at
Chappy's Restaurant on Knights
Key.
About that kilt, given to him
recently by a friend, Bodnar said,
"If you can't wear a kilt in the
Keys, you can't wear it any-
where."
Chappy's, the recently opened
waterfront bar and restaurant,
played host to the race festivities
for the first time. Runners and
revelers packed the restaurant's
parking lot and back patio after
the race, enjoying live music and
free beer.
The Bodnars say they'll be
back next year to take part in a
race they've come to love over
the years.
"It's just such a great celebra-
tion of the sport and what we do.
I only have so many good steps
left in me, but I'll always come
back," Jason said.
Following Bodnar among the
men were Andrew Greenridge,
44, of Coconut Creek with a time
of 37:02 to take second and Jon
Williams, 40, of Miami, who
placed third at 37:08.

Time for the tarpon


Go on your own,
or try your hand
in tournaments

Tarpon they're everywhere
and eating heavily all day and
night, according to the reports
I've been getting and the fish I've
seen the past few days. The flats
are covered up with them, as are
most of the bridge channels.
Hmmm, what a great time to
have a tournament and, now that
I've mentioned it, there just hap-
pens to be a few coming up real
soon.
Thursday is the start of the
oldest tarpon tournament in the
area, the 43rd annual Marathon
International, which runs for
three evenings of fishing. The
kickoff is at 2 p.m. Thursday at
our store across from the
Marathon Community Park, with
late sign-ups available. It's open
to everyone and usually hosts a
wide field of anglers challenging
the silver kings.
Then the women have their
own event that starts May 9, the
33rd annual Ladies Tarpon
Tournament.
For information on either con-
test, call 743-6139 or just stop by
the store at 3740 Overseas
Highway, just around mile mark-
er 49 bayside.
Whether or not you're fishing
the tournaments, you should take
advantage of the tarpon fishing
right now. It is hot.
Live mullet, pinfish, shrimp
and crabs, and many types of
plugs, are working for these hun-
gry fish. Use 12- or 30-pound line
classes. Use at least a 6-foot
leader of 60-pound test up to 125-
pound test and have your .way.
Remember, the big tarpon don't
come to the boat, the boat comes
to them.
The offshore report has been
interesting the past week with the
high winds, which did not allow
to many to fish. But for those that
did, numerous fish were reported,
with a mix of sizes.
The reef report has been fairly
good, with a decent bite on the
yellowtail and nice muttons. Here
again, the winds have determined
the ability to fish. A few big
grouper were hooked but won the
battle with the anglers.
The waters have been so gin
clear that the use of a fluorocarbon

WAG THE TAIL: Capt. Scott Walker caught and released 24
sailfish in one day while out on the 'Tailwalker 2' out of
Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. With him are mates Jason


Nordstrom and
Verner.


Bill Wiatt, and anglers Jimmy and Jackie


Catins leader has
been almost
a must. It's

anglers to

Dave Navarro can be frus-
trating at
times, although with the right mix
of techniques, you should be able
to work out your differences.
Inside along the inner edge of
Hawk Channel, some nice catch-
es. of snapper have been put
together as well as a few traveling
cobia. The snapper bite has con-
tinued into the bridge channels,
as well. Many of the tarpon fish-
ermen using live pinfish, shrimp
and even crabs have found more


than a few snapper. A few big
black grouper have been taken
along here, too.
Bay fishing has been the
choice for most smaller boaters
using the islands, shoals and
banks for some relief. Decent
snapper catches and a few
grouper were reported using live
shrimp and pinfish. Cut fresh bal-
lyhoo has also been a good bet.
Not too- much word on cobia
this week due to the lack of
anglers venturing out to the good
grounds that aren't protected
from the winds we've had.
Mackerel reports have really
slimmed down lately, but I am
not sure if it is just a lack of fish
or anglers in the right places to
find them, which .are the more
open areas of the bay.

Capt. Dave Navarro owns the
World Class Angler at 3740
Overseas Highway in Marathon,
and captains the charter boat
'Dave's Dream.'
