Randy and an apparently shaken Monique Acevedo walk from their truck into the jail
booking office Thursday:


MOre charges are likely


ecutors say.
More charges could come
from ongoing investigations
into Monique Acevedo's pur-
chases oil a School District
credit card to the tune of near-
ly $100,00, and her purchase
orders from stores in Key
West. ,
"Absolutely," State
Attorney Dennis Ward said.
"We have not even started
looking at her credit card
spending and purchase
orders."
Records show she bought
thousands of dollars worth of
personal items with the credit
card and didn't reimburse the
district. The list of items
included pink silk ties, bar
stools, spear-gun accessories,
a table saw, a chandelier and
the complete DVD box set of
the TV show Six Feet Under.
The FBI is also investrigat-
ing allegations that Acevedo
squandered $250,000 in feder-
al grant money for a 2006
Even Start Program that
helped poor fahlilies with lit-
eritcy. .
Investigators from the State
Attorney's Office and Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement based the theft
charges on findings from state


auditors who have. poured
over district.finance records
for nearly two months.
Her department had a cash-
only policy for class registra-
tion fees, which were collect-
ed from the teachers daily by
Acevedo. Teachers also put
cash in Acevedo's desk for her
to pick .up .the next day,
according to investigators.
Based on interviews with
six adult education teachers,
Assistant State Attorney Mark
Wilson said, none of the
money went back into the
department for supplies.
Although Randy Aceve'do
has not been charged, Wilson
said he is with Acevedo's attorney to
have, the superintendent coop-
erate with the state's case
against his wife.
It was recently discovered
that 12 of Monique Acevedo's
questionable credit card pur-
chases match purchases
reported as campaign expens-
es by her husband's re-elec-
tion calilpaign in 2008.
Randy Acevedo has repeat-
edly said that he was not
aware of his wife's purchases
or spending. He recently said
he believed liehas not violated

than $100,000 and scheming
to defraud an amount greater
than $50,000. Both are
felonies punishable by up to
30 years in prison.
"I'm looking to make an
emotional appeal to [Randy
Acevedo's] sense of decency
and ask him to do the right
thing for the good of the chil-
dren and our School District,"
Pribramsky said.
He said he's hoping a 5-0
vote to ask Randy Acevedo to
take an admimstrative leave
with pay will convince him to
step aside until all the investi-
gations into potential mis-
spending by other- schools
administrators is complete.
Acevedo said he did noth-
ing wrong and isn't going any-
where, no matter what vote is
taken.
"I've been elected to do a

job and that's what I'm going
to do," Acevedo told The
Reporter.
"If the School Board mem-
bers do their job and I'm
allowed to do my job as super-
intendent, we'll be able to
progress forward." .
The State Attorney's Office
has accused Monique Acevedo
of stealing more than $190,00
in fees from cosmetology and
other classes, Records
released by the School District
also show she used her dis-
trict-issued credit card to
make nearly $100,000 in per-
sonal purchases,
She has not been charged in
connection with use of the
credit card, but State Attorney
Dennis Ward said she likely
will face additional charges.
Randy Acevedo said he
doesn't know if anyone else
was involved in stealing from
the district, but there are sev-


eral agencies and private
investigators looking into the
matter, and he said, "If there is
something out there, we'll find
it."
Pribramsky may have diffi-
culty getting a unanimous vote
for his motion, particularly
with School Board member
Debra Walker. _She has criti-
cized Pribramsky and board
member John Dick for com-
ments they've made about
other employees possible
involvement in the scandal.
She has also been critical of
the press for writing stories
aboixt certain aspects of the
.investigation.
Walker would not comment
about how she might vote.
I don't talk about these
things in advance, and I have
not seen any documentation
[about the motion],. Walker
said.

southbound lane of U.S. I was
closed for about two hours,
according to the Sheriff's Office.
Four fire units and 15 volun-
teers from Key Largo responded
to the marina fire,.along with five
firefighters and a truck from
Tavdrnier.
On April 11, a fire at Keys
Boat Works in Marathon caused
$1.4 million in damage to boats
and structures.


to the 2:30 a.m. fire.
The fite spread to docks made
of plastic material, which carried
the fire to a wayside fueling sta-
tion. The pumps were destroyed,
but safety mechanisms prevented
flames from reaching the main
gasoline storage tanks, the chief
said.
"The only gas that burned was
in said.
"Those plastic decks are sup-
posed to last forever, but not if
they catch fire with a fuel pump
'next to them," Garcia said.
Firefighters prevented the
flames from spreading to the
adjacent Sundowners complex.
A curtain of water set up by fire-
fighters limited damage at
Sundowners to a roof at a rest-
room building.
..No boats at the marina were
damaged, Garcia said. "The
buildifig pretty much stands
alone," he said.
Cause of the blaze remains
under investigation by the
1910nroe County Fire Marshal's
Office, but it may have been
caused by an electrical problem.
Firefighters remained on
scene until after 6 a.m. One


catamaran, estimated at 28 to 30
feet long, reportedly was trying
to vacuum fuel from the bilge of
the boat while it was on a lift, on
the oceanside off Coral Drive.
The vacuum 'engine may have
ignited the blaze, Garcia said.
The owner reportedly suf-
fered burns when he tried to
extinguish the fire with a hose.
He was taken to Mariners
Hospital for treatment but the
injuries weren't believed to be
serious. His name wasn't avail-
able at press time.
The boat was destroyed,
Garcia said. A neighbor said the
vessel was worth Around
$88,000
About 200 gallons of gas
were in the boat tanks as it
burned. -
"You could see -the plume of
smoke as soon as we started to
head over there," Garcia said. "It
was a nasty situation.It was dif-
ficult to reach, and there were
concerns about environmental
damage to the canal."
The smell of burned fiberglass
permeated the neighborhood for
hours, said neighboring Coral
Drive resident Bill Carson,
Firefighters had just returned
from several hours at the
Blackwater Sound Marina, near
mile marker 104, when they got
the call about the boat.
A recently completed dock-
master's building with a cus-
tomer waiting area was gutted at
the marina. The roof caved in but
the walls remained standing,
Garcia said..

Flu outbreak triggers
.
unwarranted panic
Swine flu.
Avian flu.
Phooey.
Not sure about most folks, but we're growing very tired of
the constant cable TV frenzy associated with a flu outbreak
labeled as the next global pandemic.
Mexico City has a population of more than 20 million peo-
ple. To date, 156 people in Mexico have been diagnosed with
this strain of swine flu. *
In the United States, health officials have raised the alert
status, which triggered school districts in eight states to shut
down. In Fort Worth, that meant 80,000 students are out
because one student in one school was diagnosed with this
particular flu strain.
Perhaps it would be appropriate to point out that every year
in this country, 36,000 people die from flu yet you don't
see panic on cable TV or front-page scare headlmes.
Florida health officials have taken a somewhat more cau-
tious tone -- and when you recognize our state's economy is
dependent on people continuing to travel here, you can see
why Florida's stance differs from panic evidenced elsewhere.
Even poor old Vice President Joe Biden got caught up in the
drama department, telling an NBC "Today" show anchor that
he'd advise his own family to avoid confined spaces like air
planes and subways.
Oops!
That brought some corrective public statements from the .
White House and a modified mea culpa from old Joe, whose
general response when caught with his foot in his mouth is to
plead guilty as charged.
All this, of course, brings us back to what our parents and
grandparents used to call common sense.
So far, swine flu is not a global pandemic. You can't get this
strain from eating pork.
And flying in airplanes is no more dangerous than car-pool
ing to school with & bunch of .third graders who are known
carriers of colds, chicken pox and other childhood "diseases."
Indeed, the.1atest medical experts tell us that H1-N1 flu
(that's the sanitized name bemg pushed by the Pork Producers
Council) is very similar to the flu that hit in the United States
in 1956-57.
And it just might turn out that anyone born before 1957,

This is not an invitation to cronyism or
shoddy workmanship. Local companies should
be held to the same rigorous standards as any-
one. In fact, we demand it. As residents, tax-
payers and business owners, we want to be
sure our money is well spent.
Outside contractors are no guarantee of
quality'yvork. Look at Key West International
Airport as the most recent example.
Locals provide the tax base that supports
government, which provides needed services
in the community. Now.it's time for all gov-
ernment agencies at all levels to support
locals in return.

include all local vendors of any type.

EDITOR:
Autism is a severe developmental disabil-
ity that, according to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, affects one in 150
children, and efor some reason is four times
more likely in boys than girls and is now
considered at epidemic proportion. It may be
present at birth but usually mamfests in the
first two and a half years of life.
. It is a spectrum disorder and can range
from very mild to very severe in symptoms;
most autistic children are perfectly normal in
appearance but spend much of their time
engaging in puzzling and disturbing behav-
iors that are'very different from those of typ-
ical children, i.e., talking to themselves,
obsessing about an object, jumping and flap-
ping their arms, sometimes becoming angry
and aggressive. The first sign is usually lack
of or Idss of language,

like to take this chance to thank all
of our teachers and staff for their
daily dedication to our students.
Their continuous commitment to the

I.encourage every parent, student
and community member to take a lit-
t1e time out of their own busy sched-
ules next week to personally thank


Our teachers and staff. I invite every-
one to participate in our teacher
luitcheon on May 6 in the Media

a donation to our daily teacher raffle,
you can drop your item off at the
school office.
The heart of our school is the peo-

drop them an e-mail or give them a
call. I am sure you will make their

you appreciate their work.

The letter writer found this slaughtered nurse shark cut open and then left to die
- on the Long Key Bridge.

Bridge fishermen need more education


there to die and rot.
Local law enforcement and the state
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission do all they can do with
their limited budgets. The crews of the
greenways and trails do an outstanding
job of picking up after those- who are
too lazy to make their way to the trash
cans or are too ignorant to throw back
undersized and unwanted fish. I feel that
we, therefore, as locals must pitch in to
prevent slaughters like this from hap-
pening again,
Many of us already pick up trash and
return dead fish to the ocean whenever
we walk or ride across the bridges. We
must also be willing to educate visitors
and speak out if we witness violations,
whether they are legal or ethical, even if
they are not as obvious as a butchered
6.5-foot nurse shark.
I challenge all like-minded individu-
als to rise to the occasion and help make
our bridges something that we are not
ashamed to have friends and relatives
visit.

EDITOR:
Several yeais ago, I wrote a tongue-
in-cheek letter to the Keynoter in which
I humorously decried the appalling con-
ditions that one often found on our local
fishing bridges. Among other points, I
invited fishermen to simply discard their
unwanted species or undersized fish
right on the bridge deck: "After all, rats
and gulls need to eat, too." .
Apparently, some visitors have taken
that advice seriously. While much has
changed in the past few years (new
signs, new fishing "cut-outs" on some
bridges, bicycle/pedestrian lanes, etc.),
one thing has not changed --- the
amount of trash and discarded species
on the bridges,
As an avid cyclist and bridge fisher-
man, I encounter these issues on an
almost daily basis. However, nothing
could have prepared me for the blatant
ignorance that I came across on the
Long Key Bridge on a recent Monday
niorning.
Some butcher had landed a 6.5-foot
nurse shark on the bridge, sliced open a
small section of its right side, and left it

During and after the
EDITOR:
On April 11, the worst happened at
Keys Boat Works. A fire broke out in
the north-side wet shed, destroying
two-thirds of the shed roof, the pil-
ings, the docks and four boats. It .
could have been much, much worse.
No one was hurt.
Our ever-vigilant customers called
911 before the first exploding dive
tank, and risking life and limb, began
moving boats to safety. Within min-
utes, the fire departments from
Marathon, Monroe County, Layton,
Big Pine Key and Islamorada were
pouring thousands of gallons of water
on the inferno. The departments
worked together like a well-oiled
machine and soon had the fire under
control. .
Then came the other agencies -
the Florida Keys Electric .
Cooperative, the state Department of
Environmental Protection, the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority, the
Sheriffs Office, the U.S. Coast
Guard. The fire occurred late at night
but each of these agencies went into
action immediately. They wentabout .,

In your April 22 edition, why did
you report only on the costs of Florida
Keys Community College's name
change and its new "Island Living,
Island Learning" campaign, and how
some believe such efforts are wasteful
spending?
In the interest of accuracy and fair-
ness, don't you think it is also worth
mentioning that the college board of
trustees unanimously approved the
change? And that the college has seen
big increases in enrollment, applications
for admission and faculty salaries since
the inception of the successful "Island
Living, Island Learning" campaign?
-Newspapers around here lately-are .


full of stories about how tax dollars
meant for the education of our students
are being wasted on other things. With
all that bad.news, it's important not to
miss the chance to report how our local
college is led by a board and a president
that aren't wasting our public money.
Rather, they're wisely spending the
money entrusted to them on efforts such
as the name change and the new cam-
paign, which are attracting new students
and improving the education offered to
them.
I think it's not only a good story, it's
also a real newsworthy one for our
community right now.

    document covering that

    I am not aware of that,
    college board member Kim
    Bassett said.
    Referring to. the policy,
    Estonez said, "This might
    need to be revised and be more
    specific. It's an everyday thing
    for us."
    The president's Activity
    Fund comes from revenue
    generated by vending machine
    and bookstore sales.
    Concerning travel, board
    policy states: "All out-of-dis-
    trict and out-of-country travel
    shall be authorized and
    approved in- advance by the
    president .or her designated
    representative."
    Although Landesberg-
    Boyle approves her own tray-
    el, in three instances from
    -2007 and 2008, she did not
    sign the necessary approval
    until after the fact, in one case,
    eight months after.
    Estonez described after-
    the-fact approval as "house,
    keeping" and said, "We abide
    by the policy. I guess you
    could nitpick that."


    Agenda notice
    travel documents

    are problematic
    By SEAN KINNEY
    skinney@keynoter.com

    Ed Scales, chairman of the
    Florida Keys Community
    College board of trustees, has
    demanded explanations from
    college staff on violations of
    state statutes that apply to
    timely public access-to board
    meeting agendas.
    In an e-mail to college
    President Jill Landesberg-
    Boyle and college attorney
    Buck Devane, Scales wrote:
    "Earlier today (4/28/09), I
    received a call from State
    Attorney Dennis Ward asking
    about the. agenda for yester-
    day's board meeting!
    Obviously, this is hot the type
    of call that I enjoy fielding."
    Ward cited state statute
    120.525, part of the
    Administrative Procedural
    Act, noting that state agency
    agendas should be made avail-
    able to any person who
    requests a copy within seven
    days prior to the actual meet-
    ing.
    The agenda for the college
    board's Monday meeting,
    which began at 5 p.m., was not
    made available either physi-
    cally or online, despite public
    requests, until a mere four
    hours before the meeting.
    The board got copies just
    after 6 p.m. last Friday, also
    too late to meet the stattitory
    requirement for reasonable
    public access.
    Ward told the I(eynoter the
    statute applies to the college
    board, adding, "T can't believe
    those idiots would do that."
    Boyle e-mailed her
    response to Scales from
    Philadelphia: "Ed, I am sorry
    you fielded a phone call from
    D nis Ward and I wiH i eed

    practices that caused this situ-
    ation. However, let me be
    clear there is no
    stonewalling approach."
    She added, "I sincerely
    apologize for any problems
    that the college may have cre-
    ated in-this matter.
    Now it appears other col-
    '
    lege policies haven't'bbbd fdl-

    legislative action Friday.
    Unsure how long the -
    Legislature would remain in
    session Friday, Saunders said,
    "We're watching every bill" to
    ensure harmful riders don't get
    attached to them at the last
    minute. .
    The session was expected to-
    end at 6 p.nt. Friday but it
    appeared likely it would run
    much later, Saunders said.
    Democrats "spent a lot of the
    session this session playing
    defense," said Saunders, who
    will be House minority leader
    in 2010 if he's re-elected;
    Chief among concerns was a
    late push for rewriting Florida
    law on nearshore' oil explo-
    ration and possible drilling,
    . A bill to remove state bans
    on nearshore drilling passed the
    House but seemed to stall in the
    Senate. Gov. Charlie Crist also


    any type of boating should be
    taxed-like that," Saunders said,
    "but it's not as bad as it was."
    Larger party boats such as
    the Marathon Lady would be
    required to collect sales tax.
    A late issue that developed
    Friday focused on state library
    funding.
    A $21 million fund that
    helps local libraries was elimi-
    nated in late negotiations but
    may be added back into the
    budget.
    Without the state budget
    item, Monroe County would
    lose $75,000 that's used prima-
    rily for acquiring new. books
    and other materials, said county
    Library Director Norma Kula.
    "That would impact all five
    of our libraries, Kula said.
    "Any time you lose $75,000
    unexpectedly, you will see a
    difference.
    Most of the county's $2 mil-
    lion budget for libraries goes
    for personnel, she said. That
    would not be affected.
    "It does affect the kinds of
    things we-like to have on hand
    for everybody," Kula said.
    ob launders said efforts to
    sewer construction or
    Everglades restoration will
    continue in next week's special
    ses'p th the budget the way it
    looks, it's really hard to get
    funding for anything," he said.

    has suggested he might veto the
    bill if passed.
    "We can't say oil drilling
    definitely is dead but it appears
    to be dead," Saunders said. "Of
    course, it was something of a
    surprise that it came up at all."
    . A bill Saunders filed on
    deepwater injection wells for
    wastewater in the Keys passed
    the House on a 117-1 vote
    Tuesday, but at press time had
    not been adopted by the Senate.
    Efforts were being made to
    attach the bill which could
    save the Key Largo Wastewater
    Treatment District an estimated
    $4 million by loosening a rule
    on backup injection wells to
    a, Senate bill in the closing
    hours. -
    State environmental officials
    endorsed the bill. -.
    A budget proposal to close
    sales-tax exemptions was mod-
    ified to benefit charter boats.

    Earlier in the week, a biolo-
    gist with the U.S. Geological
    Survey was able to. spot Patsy
    and place a tracking device on
    her tail. That allowed FWC
    biologists to later track the
    manatee and follow her to an
    area suitable for rescrie.
    Because of the severity .of
    the entanglement, FWC biolo-
    gists transported the manatee
    to the Miami Seaquarium for
    removal of the monofilament
    line. The animal will be
    released back into the wild
    once it is medically cleared by
    veterinarians.

    The Lower Keys Chitnber of
    Commerce hosts a members-
    only forum on, Monday to dis-
    cuss whether the county should
    revisit the issue. of short-term
    vacation rentals. .
    A Monroe County ordinance,
    in place since 1998, prohibits
    vacation rentals in improved
    subdivisions for less than 28
    days ill the unincorporated areas.
    It's designed to maintain a sem-
    blance of quiet in the residential
    neighborhoods.
    The forum, scheduled for 6
    p.m. at the Big Pine Ultited
    Methodist Church on Key Deer
    Boulevard, is meant to take
    . stock of member businesses'
    stance on the issue. Chamber
    President Erica Rodriguez says
    the meeting is "proactive."
    A prepared statement from
    the chamber says the purpose of
    the forum is, to evaluate the
    membership's position on the
    ordinance.

    Warner said the boat also
    escaped the incident largely
    un rea ulously ... the boat
    escaped damage except to the

    "The good news is there were no
    injuries and the coral rock was
    not damaged."
    Warner said he plans to press
    charges "because that's just out-

    But Warner says none of this
    takes away from the fact that
    Buehler details one heck of a boat.
    "He's one helluva boat detail-

    Does that mean Warner won't

    On Tuesday, City Attorriey
    Shawn Smith told the Key West
    City Commission that the
    BMiama Conch Community Land
    Trust might have bilked the city
    out of $102,306 by billing twice
    for renovation projects at 304
    Truman Ave. and 227 Virginia St.
    "What I have found thus far is
    disturbing at best, and criminal or
    fraudulent depending upon the

    the commissioners. .

    over information to them,
    Norman Jean Sawyer, execu-

    said the error appeared to be
    made by the city. She said her
    organization will "probably liave

    know we don't have the money;
    they know what we've got in the

    Tuesday on approving a lease
    with the Land Trust for 6.6 acres
    at the 'I'ruman Waterfront, a lease
    that would run for 99 years at a

    At the Truman Waterfront, the
    Land Trust wants to develop 86
    one- and two-bedroom apart-
    ments, retail spase, a library,
    bocce ball courts and a Bahamian
    cultural museum.
    Meanwhile, on a related note,
    it looks like the Florida Housing
    Finance Corp., which channels
    state money to housing groups,
    has decided against giving the


    Land Trust $1.14 million it was
    awarded in 2006.
    Part of the money was to go to
    rehab 304 Truman Ave. but,
    according a report from the state
    agency, the property "Is one in
    which the developer [Norma Jean
    Sawyer] had an ownership intef-
    est and is now proposed to be
    sold to her son, Adrian Poitier."
    Poitier was a member of the
    Land Trust board as recently as
    2008, and that resulted in a con-
    flict of interest for the money, the
    state says.

    ty tax dedicated to rehab projects
    in District VI.
    The first $102,306 payment in
    question went to the Land Trust in
    2001 and was reportedly used to
    rehab Truman Avenue and
    Virginia Street properties. Theri
    in early June 2008, the Land Trust
    claimed it was owed that amount
    again, for the same project.
    So on June 17, the City
    Commission approved spending
    $455,724 in TIF money -
    $102,306 of which was for the
    reimbursement already given in
    2001.
    The city was supposed to vote
    on the lease April 7, but it was
    removed from the agenda at the
    behest of Commissioner Dan

    "This must be what they're

    By SEAN KINNEY
    skinney@keynoter.com

    Guy deBoer has a plan to offer
    Key Westers a new talk radio sta-
    tion with a focus on community
    voices and local engagement.
    "We'd like to be known as the
    voice of Key West," deBoer says.
    And as the station "where you
    hear the voices of Key West."
    DeBoer is launching KONK
    1630-AM and is planning on a
    May 15 kick-off date.
    DeEoer does not have a
    Federal Communications Com-
    mission broadcast license and
    said that he doesn't need one. For
    stations that limit their broadcast
    power to one-tenth of one watt,.
    no license is required.
    "Which is not a commercially
    viable product except when you
    live on island without moun-
    tains," he said. It doesn't hurt that
    we're surrounded by saltwater,
    which also conducts radio signals.
    "It's totally legal. I personally am
    going toexpectmy competitors to
    call the FCC and complain."
    He's gotanumberoflocalper-
    sonalities on board including
    techieMike Mongo, the secretary
    general of the Conch Republic,
    Peter Anderson, Richard Grusin,
    formerly of ."Cruisin' with
    'Grusin" on (JS 1 Radio, and Theo
    Glorie, owner of the Coffee
    Plantation, a coffee shop on
    Caroline Streetin Key West. -
    DeBoer says his radio station
    will be different from others in
    that it will be focused on Key
    West and showcase all aspects of
    the community.
    "We're going to do it local and
    it's going to be a big open door
    policy. We're the little station with
    a big voice. We're going.to cpver
    every segment of the marketplace.
    We're talking all day long."
    DeBoer provided a point of
    contrast for his approach to news
    coverage by mentioning Bill
    Becker's popular "Morning
    Magazine" show on US 1 Radio,
    an interview show focusing on
    local politics.
    He says that Becker is limited
    to 90 minutes and has a preset
    guest list that is somewhat formu-
    laic. "Us, on the other hand, are
    going to be covering every aspect
    of Key West. I'm going to have
    15 Bill Beckers."
    Right now, deBoer is getting
    things lined up at his new studio

    Guy deBoer, a Key
    West native, makes
    his first foray into
    1 radio next month
    whert he starts
    9 broadcasting on
    KONK 1630-AM. He
    - 9 says he plans to go
    6, up against US 1
    Radio with a talk
    format stocked with
    Iocal personalities,
    including Peter
    Anderson, Mike
    Mongo and
    Richard Grusin.
    unity is really going to
    respond," he says. "We're here to
    talk."
    DeBoer was reluctant say liow
    much capital he's starting with,
    but said that he put a "sizeable
    investment" into the business.
    He's making a go at it in an
    economic climate that doesn't
    appear favorable to radio stations.
    Faced with hard times, US 1
    Radio, which bus itself as the
    most-listened-to station in the
    Florida Keys, recently got rid of
    about six part-time employees in
    an effort to cut costs. On a
    national level, Clear Channel, the
    largest radio company in the
    nation, has reportedly laid off
    nearly 2,000 employees just this
    year.
    Linda Russin, who owns
    Island 107.1-FM in Key West,
    said that radio is a good way to
    disseminate your message but
    that developing an advertising
    base is the hard part.
    "Some people with businesses
    want to advertise and some want
    to cut back. To have an advertiser
    on your station, you develop a
    relationship. That doesn't happen
    . overnight."
    DeBoer said that his radio
    product will be appealing to
    advertisers because it is targeted
    to a small market.
    "For the business side, the rea-
    son why radio is failing is
    because it has very little contact
    with the local community. I
    believe...if all we're doing is talk-
    ing primarily about Key West and
    the Keys, people will listen.
    We're in a small market. We
    know who the radio people are.
    All of these businesses I can walk
    in. If they take the time to lis-
    ten...I believe we'll be very com-
    petitive. We don't need a large
    advertising base to survive."

    He has also been going around
    towh testing his signal strength,
    which, although not that wide-
    spread, deBoer says .will be
    strong. .
    The listening area will center
    around the 130-foot tower on top
    of Key West Chemical on
    Simonton Street and cover all of
    Key West and extend up to Key
    Haven. "We will have a quality
    signal," deBoey says.
    He even mentioned climbing
    up to the top of the radio tower to
    check on hardware and described
    the situation, with a laugh, as
    "interesting.'" "
    At first, deBoer plans on
    broadcasting Monday through
    Friday from7 a.m.to7 p.m. with
    the remaining time filled with
    rebroadcasts -of recorded seg-
    ments. He also intends to stream
    live to the Internet with an option
    to view an in-studio Web cam at
    www.konkam.com. .
    "We will be expanding on
    these ideas and we will be
    -expanding with different for-
    mats," deBoer told the Keynoter.
    -DeBoer, a member of the fam-
    ily that co-owns Manley-deBoer
    Lumber Co.,returned to Key West
    in 2005 after a 25-year absence.
    He worked around the country in
    the newspaper and magazine
    industries, including as the associ-
    ate publisher of the- now-closed
    New Miami Magazine.
    DeBoer says that given the
    state of print journalism, he was-
    n't interested in starting his own
    publication here. But, he noted:
    "Radio isn't doing well either."
    He says that's because of the
    corporate strpeture that domi-
    nates the industry is "not con-
    nected to the conununity any-

    Planning has been exhaus-

    Beer and soda will be avail-
    able and various food vendors
    will self barbecue, hot dogs,

    But the key is to put on a
    good show, since many would-
    be sponsors and dragon boat
    clubs are waiting to see how this
    year's event turns out.
    "We will be marketing
    strongly to the northern teams to

    IOSes to Belen
    ,
    but -still alive
    By DICK WAGNER
    Keynoter Contributor
    -
    In the euphoria aftermath of
    Tuesday's upset victory by the
    Key West High School baseball
    team over Monsignor Pace,
    visions were conjured up of
    state playoff games before
    packed crowds at Rex Weech
    Field.
    Those visions dissolved
    Thursday night in Hialeah
    Gardens when the Conchs lost
    to Belen Jesuit, 9-2. in the


    District 16-4A championship
    game.
    Key West, which would have
    had at least one home regional
    quarterfinal game if it had won,
    will instead play on the road
    Tuesday mght against the
    District 15-4A champion, either
    Archbishop McCarthy or
    Pembroke Pines Charter. Those
    teams played late Friday mght
    m that district's title game.
    . Thursday night, the Conchs
    bore no resemblance to the team
    that defeated Pace, 7-5, .in
    Tuesday night's thrilling semifi-
    nal game.
    See KEY WEST / 21


    Gulliker Prep in Thursday's dis-
    trict championship game played
    at Founders Park.
    "We still get to play
    Tuesday," said head coach Jeff
    Meyers. "Whoever it is, we
    don't care. Our guys showed
    they're not afraid of' anybody."
    The Hurricanes owned a 3-2
    lead in the top of the third
    against Gulliver, a state con-
    tender with two major-college
    signees. But the Raiders (22-5)
    rallied for a four-run, four-hit
    outburst in the bottom of the
    third to take the lead for good.

    Imbued with high expecta-
    tions and confidence, six mem-
    bers of the Key West High School
    track team expect to shine at
    today's 2A. state meet at
    Showalter Field in Winter Park.
    "I hope to get a firstin the
    triple jump, a first in the 300-
    meter hurdles and to be m the top
    three or four in the 4x400 hur-
    dles," said junior Phillip Young.
    Last season, he was seventh in
    the triple jump and sixth in the
    hurdles.
    . To win a medal, an athlete has
    to finish in the top eight, and that,
    said coach Dave Perkins, should-
    n't be a problem. "I think every-
    body can get, or should get a
    medal," Perkins said. "And we
    should have two state champi-
    ons." r

    If so, then "Fresk Rompers:
    A Festival of Short Plays" is
    for you.
    Playing Tuesdays through
    Sat s through May 30 at
    the R Theatre in Key .
    West, show has 10 actors,
    seveli di(ebtors and five play-
    wrightscreating one evening of
    smartly funny 10-minixte plays.
    Presenting an evening of so-
    called shorts is a popular trend
    among regional theaters. For
    example, the City Theatrb in
    Miami has a whole series -
    "Summer Shorts," "Shorts 4
    Kids" and "Undershorts." So
    the Red Barn turned to the City
    Theatre for scripts for
    "Rompers."
    It begins with "Laura Keen
    Goes On," based on the true
    story of the actress whose per-
    formance was disrupted with
    the assassination of President.
    Lincohi at Ford's Theatre. .
    Laura Keene Goes On" was
    written by Michael McKeever
    and directed by Doug Shook. It
    stars Marjone Paul-Shook,
    Kyle Caskey and Anne O'Shea.
    McKeever wrote two other
    plays that were selected for
    "Fresh Rompers," "American
    Gothic" and "Splat!"
    "American Gothic" is
    directed by Vanessa
    MacCaffrey and features Bob
    * Bowersox and Carolyn Cooper
    as the symbols of moral values
    m middle America who rethink
    their positions.
    "Splat!" picks up with the
    .lives of the Munchkins after

    ping a house in their midst. It

    religious themes in decidedly
    different ways.
    Ken Brisbois' "Paul &
    Eddie," directed by Michael
    Marrero and starring Konrath
    and Perkins, provides a
    provocative look at the two
    thieves who hung beside
    Christ. In contrast, Deborah
    Zoe Laufer's "Saturday,"
    directed by Mark Watson and
    starring Terri White and
    Bowersox, is a poignant story
    of a cleaning woman and an
    orthodox. Jew whose beliefs
    about ivork hinder-him from
    getting to synagogue.
    "A Little Chatter," written
    by Ellen Margolis and directed
    by Rebecca Gleason, is another
    poignant piece that proves
    meaningful connections are
    possible even on the sidelines


    of a Little League game. It fea-
    tures Tamara Chanmugam and
    Billy Rivera.
    Finally, Alex Dremann's
    "On the Porch One Crisp
    Spring Morning" is a funny
    mother-daughter spy thriller
    filled with twists and turns. It's
    directed by Mimi McDonald
    and Carolyn Cooper and
    O'Shea.
    The individual sets for all of
    the shorts were designed by
    Gary 191cDonald, lights were
    designed by R.J. Conn, cos-
    tumes were coordinated by
    Carmen Rodriguez, and sound
    'production was provided by
    Michael Marrero. Stage man-
    ager is Rebecca Gleason.

    But there is a silver lining.
    While the artists' works will

    "Maria Schissler from the
    Kennedy Studio [in the Town

    which is May the 12th, and she

    I'AHitudes Staff

    . It lasted a good 10 years, but
    m this economy, most every-
    thing suffers. And that meludes
    an.
    The Bougamvillea House
    Gallery, a member-run coopera-
    tive in Marathon that opened in
    1999, is closing for good at the
    end of the month because of
    weak sales and reduced mem-
    bership.
    "It's kind of sad for us," says
    spokeswoman Julie Rehbock.
    The gallery has been housed
    in half of the Greater Marathon
    Chamber of Commerce's build-
    ingat mile tilarker 53.2, since
    January 2008. Before that, it
    was just south ori U.S. 1 in a
    quaint Conch house.
    In March, co-op members
    celebrated the Bougainvillea
    House's 10th anniversary. But
    there were far less members -
    then than at its peak.
    "Presently we have 14,"


    CAttitudes photo by LARRY KAHN
    Key Largo artist Clay Tinney mans the gallery as required of
    co-op members on Wednesday. His specialty is silver,
    copper and brass jewelry. He says the Bougainvillea House's
    closing is sad but that hell do fine, since he travels to exhibit
    and sell in shows.


    Rehbock says. "At one point -
    about four years ago, we had 31
    artists. Little by little, people
    didn't want to travel the high-
    way to sit [and put in their time
    during gallery hours]. They
    couldn't make sales."
