Vessel's long journey started in 1943

By SEAN KINNEY

Advocates of artificial reefs
say projects like the scuttling of
the Vandenberg help marine life
by creating new underwater habi-
tat where fish populations can
thrive. -
That view is not universally
shared. -Some conservationists ,
have misgivings about shipwreck
reefs and their effect on the ocean
environment. .
So what will happen after the
Vandenberg sinks seven miles off
Key West?
The Reef Environmental
Tklucation Foundation, based in
Key Largo, recently completed a
five-year, monitoring project of
marine life at the 510-foot
Spiegel Grove, scuttled six miles
off Key Largo in 2002.
"As we could've expected, it

science. "Populations will go up

on a nattiral reef."
The study covers from 2002,
when the-Spiegel Grove took the
phinge in 130 feet of water, until
2007.

But Reef Relief still worries
that not all contaminants were
removed in the effort to clean the
522-foot Vandenberg. "One of
our concerns with the process ...
is that they have not removed
everything," McCleary said. "I
don't care what they say."
"There could be a potential
with water-quality issues over the
years," McCleary said.
But Vandenberg- project
organizers say a big reason the
scuttling has taken years is delays
caused by ever-changing envi-
ronmental regulations and the
tremendous quantity of contaml-
nants that had to be removed.
Pollutants removed melude 81
bags of asbestos, 193 tons of
materials that contained poten-
tially carcinogenic substances,46
tons of buoyant refuse, 300
pounds. of materials containing
mercury and 184 55-gallon
drums of paint chips.
Money pledged by city, coun-
ty, state and federal authorities -
more, than $8 million could
have been spent to address what
McCleary says is the main cause
of reef decay and water-quality
problems poor sewage treat-
ment.
The state has mandated a July
2010 deadline for everyone in the
county to be hooked up to central
sewers.
"If they took that money they
got for the Vandenberg and spent
it on advanced wastewater, that is
the real protection our living reef
needs," McCleary said.


The USS Gen. Hoyt S.
Vandenberg is set to sink
Wednesday. Here are some
details about the ship and
the sink location. .
The Vandenberg:
+ Weighs 17,120 tons, or

Leslie Levis, manager of the
Captain's Corner .dive shop in
Old Town, told the Keynoter her
shop won't offer guided dives
due to liability issues.
But she did note that verifying
divq certifications would be
taken seriously by others who
offer Vandenberg dives, saying "I
do believe that because of the
complexity of the dive, people
are going to pay more attention."
She also addressed concerns
that not-so-exfierienced divers
could get in trouble trying to
explore the interior of the
Vandenberg.
"It's such an extensive ship,
most people are going to stay on
the top" exploring the antenna
and satellite dishes. "Most people
have common sense and a self-
preservation instinct. '
While not offering guided
tours, Captain's Corner will offer
four-hour trips to the wreck with
full equipment for $95. With just
tanks and weights, the cost is $75.
The shop's Sea Eagle is 60 feet
long and holds 22 passengers.
For more information, call
296-88650rgotowww.captains

The wreck will be open to
recreational divers after officials
send teams of clearance divers
down to the Vandenberg after she
is scuttled to ensure it's secure.
That is expected to take a day.


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.corn

With the scuttling of the
Vandenberg just days away,
Lower Keys and Key West dive
shops are ramping up preparations
to offer trips out to the wreck.
Bob Holston; owner of Dive
Key West on North Roosevelt
Boulevard, said he's expecting
dive trips to the Vandenberg to be
a big hit with Keys tourists.
"The phones have been
absolutely crazy," he said. "We
have four people basically
answering phones all day long."
He said he has received book-
ings from across the United
States and from as far a field as
Norway, Germany and England.
"We're getting tremendous
interest," Holston said..
Dive Key West will offer guid .
.ed tours of the Vandenberg's top
deck and superstructure but won't
offer dives that penetrate the intg-
rior of the former military vessel.
"All of the staff has been on
board the ship" while it's been
docked at the Truman Waterfront,
Holston said, and "there's so much
to see on the decks and above."
Dive Key West operates a 46-
foot boat that holds 16 passengers.
Just a trip out to the, new.
wreck is $99; it's $119 if you
need tanks and weights and, for a
full equipment package, it's
$149. The trip will last for about
four hours, with a little .ov6r an
hour of that being the travel time
out to the wreck site seven miles
off Key West.

Keys Opinion


Hs her g as tox is

least-painful bite
What better timing to talk about a local-option gas tax than
Memorial Day vicekend, when millions of Americans get in
their cars and drive someplace to enjoy-a three-day holiday-
How many of those travelers head to the Keys is one key point
in the debate that took place Wednesday when Monroe County
commissioners approved a pared-down local-option gas tax.
Public Works asked for a 6-cent hike in gas taxes to help fund <
rep air and maintenance posts on nearly 400 miles of roads and
26 bridges maintained by the county.
Local-option taxes fall ituto two different buckets, so the vote
for a penny tax passed without much trouble.
But the extra nickelitax from a different bucket was a chok-
ing pomt.
It takes a super-majbrity to impose any addedstax, which
meant four corinnishioners needed to vote affirmative. So the 5~
cent proposal failed because of opposition from commissioners
Mario Di G6nnaro and Heather Carruthers. *
Carruthers came back with a 3-cent option (down from 5
cents), and that managed to get the four votes needed, with
Commissioner Gennaro warning: "This is not the time for new
taxes "
Commissioner Kim Wigington has publicly supported a gas
tax hike for-months. "We need tar take care of our [road and
a
bridge] needs," she told the Keynoter back in January, and
thaf s the only way we can do that."
And she adds that tourists underwritelt significant portion*of
that gas t~ax, given Monroe County's population is somewhere
south of.78,000 people compared to 2.5 million tourists, most
of whom arrive by car.
Letters to the editor complain that "local workers" will be
most hurt by this higher gas tax, and suggest a better alternal
tive is to "put tip toll on the,18-Mile Stretch."
Ah, but that idea has been floated and sunk many times
before. The federal government controls U.S. 1 and any toH
requires an act of Congress. And don't forget most of the
Stretch is is Miami-Dade, which would surely want its share of
the toll money.
So good luck there.
And finally, there's another side to this debate that's too often
lost. Without the gas tax, the burden would fall to property
taxes, which means tourists pay nothing to use our roads.
The four commissioners who voted for the additional 4 cents
are being good stewards on our behalf.
It's not easy to vote for any tax increase, but this one makes
more sense than the many poot alternatives espoused by their
critics.

EDITOR:
In response to a recent letter: If cutting
taxes is the best way to help the economy, then
how come Bush's record tax cuts for eight
years doesn't have the economy boormng?
Because it's nothing but rhetoric.
I also find it telling the very same tea-bag-
gers that were protestmg against tax mereases
of any kmd are now yelling from the rooftops
that we need a sales tax hike to pay for our

think it is above the rules on several issues. It
seenis obvious the president and her staff feel
thqy do not have to comply with state statutes
regarding publicly advertising meetings and are
overly concerned aboixt how their name will
adect their ability to recruit outside the local
area.
And they don't want to pay their stormwater
fees to the city of KeyWest. What about being
a good citizen to the local area? Iri the worst
economic times, the college is protesting pay-
ing thy stormwater fees and has everr requested
a refund of more than $150,000 from the city.


The college may be struggling with budget
constraints, blit so are the city and its workel:s.
The city his worked hard just to maintain vital
services and staffing at the fire arid police
departments.
Maybe if the president would pay for her
own housing on her rather generous salary and
beliefits package, the college could afford the
stormwater fees charged by the city. I know it
. must be hard to live on $159,000 in Key West,
but it can be done. Just ask the thousands of
couples who live here on a combined income
of less than that every day.

EDITOR:
I have attended many graduations at Florida
Keys Community College. Previously, gradua-
tion was appropriately an event for students
and about student success.
* Throughout the years, multiple awards and
recognition have been given to students of our
community. Many students, as thos6 in the
College Reach Out Program or the RAVE firo-
gram, have had to overcome incredible hard-
ships, language barriers and financial instabili-
ty to earn their degrees. How sad not to have
recognized these students or those who were
first in their families to have graduated from
college.
Shouldn't the students who were selected
by the facultjr to be listed in "Who's Who in
Junior Colleges" have been recognized this
year? Certainly, awards should have been
given to students for their participation in stu-
dent clubs and for their academic achievement,
as membership in Phi Theta Kappa, an interna-
tional two-year college honor society. FKCC
graduates who had been awarded university
transfer scholarships should have been recog-
nized, as well.
Of particular note to the families in the
Keys was recognition of students who were
relatives of other students. One year I recall a
father arid son graduating, three siblings gradu-
ating, and a mother and son graduating with
honors..Many of our community's students
worked several jobs, juggled roles as wife and
mother, and still achieved great academic suc-
cess. These distinctions were always
announced and applauded, and the families
were always very proud..
This year's graduation was not about the
students and their achievement. I was appalled
to see this graduation without one graduating
student receiving a special award or recogni-
tion. Not one of the graduates was called to
stand to well-deserved applause. Who has ever
heard of a graduation that was not about the
graduates?
In my opinion, this graduation was a public
relations event starring college President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle. Once again, the public had
to listen to a self-serving recitation about how
wonderful the president thinks she has been
for the college..It is unthinkable that not one


College needs to pay its fair share


FKCC graduates given second-class treatment

EDITOR* .
Reporter Sean Kinney's recent
story about the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust being audited,
though generally accurate, failed to
tell the whole story. And the headline
writer chose to slant the article nega-
tively toward the Land Trust.
The city's original reimbursement
to the Land Trust for refurbishing
properties in question was made in
2001, during the earlier days of the
Land Trust when it was being run on
a shoestring, accomplishing great
things on a tiny budget.
It had only one underpaid employ-
ee at the time, and relied on a hired
accountant to.keep track of its
,finances. Nevertheless, the Land Trust
ivas also subjected to its yearly exter-
nal audit (as is true every year).
Years later, m 2008, after the Land .
Trust revamped its operations, the new
c deputy director initiated an attempt to
assure that all past reimbursements
from the city had been made. He
relied'oxi the very same external CPA
firm that had signed off on the yearly
certified audits to examine a list of
expenses that apparently the city had-
n't reimbursed. This CPA categorically
agreed that the list being presented to
the city was accurate. A representative
of this finn stood before the City
Commission and stated such.
The list had been presented to the
city, with its extensive accounting
staff, for its review well ahead of a
City Commission meeting. Are we to
assume they did not even attempt to
reconcile the charges? After whatever


happened in the city's accounting
department, the comlilission unani-
mously approved the reimbursement
of the finds, which had been owed to
the Land Trust.
Cat to 10 months later. Suddenly,
just days before the Land Trust's
Truman Waterfront lease is up for
approval, the city attorney looks into
an issue totally unrelated to that reim-
bursement and just happens to some-
how find, buried in whatever city
records he just happened to be look-
ing in, something that the city's
Finance Department and the Land
Trust's external auditor had not seen?
Really? Something fishy here.
To compound matters, the city then
makes no attempt to contact the Land
Trust.If any responsible business
found double billing from a service
provider, wouldn't they immediatify
go back to the provider to discuss it?
You'd think so. But the first the Land .
Trust ever heard about this issue was
when the press was going live with
the story.
The Land Trust is an upstanding
organization whose only crime is that
there are people who have developed
an attitude about its executive director,
an executive director [who] refuses to
let people marginalize the group's
good works and refuses to let those
people take away this Truman
Waterfront property.

EDITOR:
I'm tired of hearing about bridge
fisherman being destitute and penniless
and that it would be a burden on them
. to buy a fishing license. It's time they
do their fair share and pitch in like the
rest of us fishermen who pay.
If the $7.50 cost of a license stops
them from fishing, maybe they should
cut back on the beer, pop and cigarettes,


EDITOR: .
I have lived in Marathon for more
than 15 years. I own a home and pay my
taxes. I enjoy walking and bike riding
around the Marathon airport.
More than two weeks ago I was
attacked and bitten by one of the large ,
shelter dogs. The young girl that had it
had no control over this dog, nor did she
know what to do. I told her to take the
dog back to the shelter and I would call
for a deputy. When I got to the shelter,
the dog was gone.
I sat outside waiting for the deputy.
Finally, a shelter worker came out and
got my name and phone number. I
showed him the puncture wounds from
the bite, because he kept saying maybe
it's just a scratch and "he is a good dog."
No assistance was given to me.
The deputy came and took my infor-
mation and said it was OK for me to
leave and tend to my injuries. He went -
inside to get further information for his
report. Well,.folks, after almost three .
weeks, I finally received a paper from


the quarantine saying the dog did not
have rabies. The rest of the report is
inaccurate.
The shelter operator stated that no one
under age 18 walks the dogs, and we all
know all of our kids have walked those
dogs. The shelter also declined to pay
my doctor bills.
When I asked for the name of the girl
that was walking the dog, I was told that
I cannot have it. I also have not had my
calls returned in reference to getting a
corrected report with the facts.
Someone please tell me why, when
you're the victim of a dog attack, that
these documents are not available imme-
diately? Why is the shelter not account-
able for what the volunteers do? Who,
then, is accountable for the dog bites?
Are they all just covered up the way
mine has been? We took pictures of the
puncture wounds and'everyone has seen
them, yet the shelter just pretends it did-
n't happen. Any ideas?

to the agenda. But it was
reopened and passed 4-1, with Di
Gennaro again voting against the
tax increase.
"I don't think we should be
raising taxes at this time. We are
going to affect the poorer person
in this county more than anyone
else, and a buck to them means
more than a buck to anyone else,"
he said.
The 3-cent tax shared with
other municipalities is expected
to net the county $219,000 per
penny each year.
Key West is estimated earn
$455,129, Marathon $192,112,
Islamorada $132,109, Key
Colony Beach $15,837 and
Layton $3,&25.
Public Works Director Dent
Pierce. told the* commission the
county has little nioney to repair
its 389 miles of roads and 26
bridges. He said a seven-year
plan to do so is estimated to cost
$29 million.
"What I fear is going to hap-
pen is we're going to have to post
bridges for weight limits," Pierce
said. "If nothing is done, the serv-
ices will have to be cut to the
point that we won't be able to
take care of the roads at all."
None of the commissioners
favored a tax increase, but
Commissioner Kim Wigington
said the only other choice is to
Increase property taxes instead.

Acevedo and the school district's

she resigned March 3, is charged
with theft and fraud for allegedly

tion programs she oversaw.
Acevedo's attorney, Nathan

also filed a motion requesting a

Wednesday, the commission
also approved a revenue sharmg

The distribution is Monroe
County receives 45.21 percent,
Key West 31.21 percent,
Marathon 13.17 percent,
Islamorada just over 9 percent,
Key Colony just over 1 percent

County Public Works Depart-
ment figures from the 2008 fiscal
year show the county collected

Key West, $287,099 for Marathon,
$154,345 for Islamorada, $38,149

Out of both options "and time,
the Monroe County Commission
on Wednesday finally approved
two ordinances raising gas taxes
4 cents per gallon starting next
fiscal year.
The taxes, which finance
roadwork, have been on and off
the table for several months, but
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton
said that due to deadlines, action
on them would have to wait until
2011 if not voted on at Wed-
nesday's commission meeting.
Qnly a 1-cent tax estimated to
earn the county $500,000 per
year was approved initially, while
a 5-cent tax shared with the Keys
municipalities was voted down.
But Commissioner Heather
Carruthers requested that item be
reopened so she could offer a
compromise of 3 cents.
She and Commistioner Mario
Di Gennaro dissented on the orig
inal vote, and tax increases
require a super-majority vote, or
four of five votes.
"My concern is this impacts
working people in the Keys more
than anyone else. Chances are if
you're coming down from
Miami, you might not even have
to stop for gas," Carruthers said.
Di Gennaro tried to prevent
Carruthers from bringing the
issue back by contending

than the $180,000 she's charged
with stealing.
The 43-page report signed by
Florida Auditor General David
Martin and released Thursday
says that although polices and
written procedures were in place,
they were routinely ignored by
Finance Department officials,
supervisors and department
directors. The audit examined
finance records from July 2007 to
February 2009.
In addition to the spending by
Acevedo, who resigned in March
from her position as coordinator
of the Monroe School District's
Adult Education Department, the
audit cites $28,000 in spending
by nitie other district employees,
the veracity of which can't be
verified because proper receipts;
documentation and other required
material wasn't provided.
"I feel violated right now,"
School Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said. "The audit says we
basically need to pass a policy
that [employees] need to be hon-
est and obey the law. I didn't
think we needed a policy like
that, but I guess we do."
State.Attorney Dennis Ward,
who has charged Acevedo with
felony grand theft and fraud, said
the report would likely be the
basis for "phase two" of his pros-
ecution which could include
charges against Superintendent
Randy Acevedo.
The audit confirms that 27


expenditures, about $4,000, listed
by Randy Acevedo's election
campaign for 2008 actually
appear to have been paid with
School District funds includ-
ing federal grant money.
"Monique was filing my
financial reports," he said. "I was
making sure we've got money
coming in and going out, but not
watching every purchase or writ-
ing every check."
Beyond that, Aceiredo said the
overall audit findings are the
same as what's been reported in
the press since the scandal broke
nearly three months ago.
In adult education, the audit
identifies $72,642 in credit card
purchases, $25,443 in reimburse-
ments and $20,012 paid to vendors
that "do not appear to correlate to
a district or public purpose."
Some $36,000 of Monique
Acevedo's purchases, including
groceries, DVDs and home f ur-
nishings, was supposed to go to
the Monroe Association df
Remarkable Citizens.
However, MARC employees
said they received only $1,800 to
reimburse the cost of computer
equipment they purchased, the
audit states.
Acevedo and a "member of her
family," the report states it
doesn't say who also purchased
$780 in plywood and lumber using
the credit card held by the district's
construction and maintenance
director. District records don't


show the purpose of the purchases,
but they do indicate the construc-
tion director's supervisor wouldn't
approve the purchases.
Auditors also questioned sev-
eral ofAcevedo's mvolces for air-
line tickets and other travel total-
ing $5,244 because they missed
required vouchers or because
travelers' names were obscured
with Wite-Out or pen marks.
The Finance Department
always paid out the purchases
despite the irregularities. Finance
Director Kathy Reitzel did not
return calls for comment.
School Board member John
Dick said he didn't want school
administrators to lay all the blame
on finance staff.
"This to me shows the leader-
ship and basically the entire dis-
trict administration has failed,"
he said. "This board has got to
take control of this district."
Acevedo said he and Reitzel
would formulate responses to the a
14 audit findings and post them
on the .district's Web site.
Acevedo is requesting comments
from board members before
sending the responses to the state
AuditorGeneral'sOffice.
"I'm just as confident now as I
vias when this first came up that
wecouldfixthis,"saidAcevedo,
who has rejected the calls of
many to resign. "We can get past
this and make the district better
and make sure it doesn't happen
again."

New contracts

Of6 fOr 5 years

rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission narrowly approved five-
year contract renewals for its four
trash and recycling providers
Wednesday.
Commissioners Mario Di
Gennaro and Heather Carruthers
dissented.
Representatives from environ-
mental groups Last Stand and
Green Living & Energy
Education raised concerns over
what they call recycling require-
ments falling short, while Di
Gennaro was adamant that it's
"bad business" not to put trash
services out to bid.
Di Gennaro called the* con-


tracts "sweetheart deals," but
added he'd like the companies in
place to stay provided they're
the lowest bidders.
"Other counties don't under-
stand how we don't go out to bid.
They're great vendors and I want
them to stay, but my obligation is
- to the taxpayer," Di Gennaro said.
The county's four solid-waste
and recycling franchise agree-
ments were set to expire Sept. 30
and Administrator Roman Gastesi
made it clear in January he want-
ed the service bid out.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy.
pointed out that the contracts con-
tained options for renewal, which
she said means the county should
negotiate with those companies.
"WhenIseconacontractfive
years with an option to renew, it
does not scream [request for pro-
posals] to me," Murphy said.
Carruthers said she's con-

corned with the county raising
per-household annual fees from
$292 to $366 for trash services.
The contracts retain the $292 fee,
in place since 1995, but the com-
mission can raise the annual cost
to $366 no later than when it
finalizes the county's 2009-10
budget m September.
"We're forcing through a 25
percent increase on this in a single
year. In a recession, I think that's
unconscionable. It's not fair to
recoup that in one year," she said.
Each of the four contracts has
the rate increases effective Oct. 1
of 98 cents per month per resi-
dence; 10 cents per cubic yard for
commercial solid waste; and 10
cents per cubic yard for commer-
c1alrecycling container collection.
According to the contracts:
+ Providers will help the
county achieve a 40 percent recy-
cling rate by 2014.
Annually purchase at their
expense residential recycling bms


for their service area.
+ Help Monroe County cap-
ture recyclmg numbers from
commercial businesses that haul
out their own recyclables.
+ Increase the franchise fee
paid to the County from 3 to 5
percent to fund a countrywide
recychng program.
Gastesi's main concern in
January was the lack of a solid-
waste master plan like many
other counties have. But there
was much debate over what it
will cost and how long it will take
to implement.
Gastesi told Di Gennaro it
would take one year to form a
plan, but Solid Waste Manage-
ment Senior Administrator Rosa
Washington said a short time later
it will take at least two years.
Commissioner Kim Wigmgton
said she called Miami-Dade
County and was told that coun-
ty's been working on a master
plan for at least four years.

With the clock ticking down
to the official start of hurricane
season, a lowpressure system
carried winds and rains from the
Bahamas through the Gulf of
Mexico this week.
However, it doesn't appear the
first named tropical storm to
be called Ana will arrive early.
While packing winds gusting
to 35 knots as it approached the
Gulf Coast Friday, the system
doesn't appear likely to develop
into a named storm, said Dennis
Feltgen, meteorologist and
spokesman for the National
Hurricane Center. .
"A system like this is not
unusual at this time of year,"
Feltgen said Friday. "All it's real-
ly doing is bringing some badly
needed rain."
It also does not foretell any-
thing about the six-month hurri-
cane season that begins June 1,
Feltgen said. . .
"No single weather event has a
bearing on future weather events,"
he said. "It's not that easy." -
All long-range indications for
the 2009 hurricane season point to
an average season, according to
the latest forecast released
Thursday by the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration.
There's a70 percent chance of
having nine to 14 named storms
this hurricane season, of which
four to seven could become hur-
ricanes, including one to three of
them major, according to the
report. .
That largely matches the fore-
cast issued earlier by the experts
at Colorado State University, who
say to expect six hurricanes, two
of them major. Major hurricanes
are Category 3 or above, with sus-
tained winds of at least 111 mph.
"This outlook is a guide to the
overall expected seasonal activi-
ty. However, the outlook is not
just about the numbers, it's also
about taking action," said Gerry
Bell, lead seasonal hurricane
forecaster at NOAA's Climate
Reduction Center,
Prepare for each and every
season regardless of the seasonal
outlook. Even a near- or below-
normal season can produce land-
falling hurricanes, and it only


The purpose of the Budget Workshop is 1) to receive presentation and discussion regarding the
Authority's Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2009-10 including the Capital Improvement Plan of the
FKAA. 2) Discussion of Drought and Wellfield Monitoring and 3) an Audit Committee Workshop to
receive presentation from the Authority's Auditors regarding the Annual Audit Report for Year Ending
September 30, 2008.
The purpose of the Regular Meeting is for the Board to take action on routine business matters for the
FKAA (potable water aixd wastewater issues) and to receive reports off operational aspects of the organ-
ization. Additionally, the FKAA will consider authorizing Staff to enter into Rulemaking for Revisions
to FKAA Rules & Regulations, including Rates, Fees and Charges. The agenda and backup can be
viewed on our web site @ www.fkaa.com, or a copy of the Agenda, or any backup, is available upon

takes one landfalling storm to
make it a bad season," Bell said.
Shaping NOAA's seasonal
outlook is the possibility of com-
peting climate factors.
Conditions associated with the
ongoing period of high activity
that began in 1995 which
include enhanced rainfall over
West Africa, warmer Atlantic
waters and reduced wind shear
- still exist, and could lead to a
busy season.
But Atlantic hurricane activity
could be reduced if the El Nino
weather pattern develops in the
equatorial Eastern Pacific this
summer, or if ocean temperatures
in the eastern tropical Atlantic
remain cooler than normal.
"Right now, it's pretty quiet
out there," Feltgen said.
Regardless of the number of
storms, Florida residents must be
prepared.
"When disaster strikes, we are
going to be there as a team to sup-
port governors, tribalestate and
local officials to meet the needs of
survivors," said Craig Fugate, the
new head of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
after he Avas sworn in Tuesday.
Prior to joining FEMA,
Fugate was director of the Florida
Division of Emergency Manage-
ment since 2001. In that role, he
coordinated disaster response,
recovery, mitigation, and pre-
paredness efforts with each of the
state's 67 counties and local gov-
ernnients.
He often expressed special
concern for the Keys, whose res-
idents frustrate him by their gen-
eral lack of plans to evacuate for
coming storms. Evacuation was
his key point, in 2008 and 2006,
when he participated in panel dis-
cussions at hurricane awareness
conferences at the Marathon
Government Center.
The Keynoter and the Key
West National Weather Service
office sponsored, organized and
hosted the conferences.
After his swearing-in on
Tuesday, Fugate said, "When dis-
aster strikes, we are going to be
there as a team to support gover-
nors, tribal, state and local officials
to meet the needs of survivors."
Hurricane season runs through
Nov.30.

Marathon Councilman Dick
Ramsay says an in-house city
attorney gould save the city at
least $250,000 per year.
Ramsay's sponsored an ordi-
nance for Tuesday's .regular
council meeting requesting a cost
analysis and feasibility study for
a full-time attorney employed by
the city. Currently the city out-
sources the le al department to
attorney Jimmy Morales and his
Miami-based firm, Stearns,
Weaver, Miller, Weissler,

save at a bare minimum 50 per-
cent. We can bring in an attorney
and reduce the budget from
$500,000 to $250,000 absolutely
for sure. On top of that, the avail-
ability of contact is much better, I
have hesitated calling Jimmy
because I'm afraid ofthe billing
the city will get. I only call when
I feel it's criticaL'
Morales declined to comment
on Ramsay's proposal, but did
say, "I think we provide a great
service to the council and the res-
idents of the city, and I'm pre-
pared to do so as long as the
council wants us to."
In a Friday e-mail to City
Council members, Morales sub-
mitted a proposed 2009-10 fiscal
year budget requested by Finance
Director Peter Rosasco. At
$500,000, it is $100,000 less than
the current year's $600,000

maintain it was Worthington who .
called Ward about the ordinance.
Truth of the matter is, I read
it in the paper and approached
Dennis and said I'd be interested
in doing it for the city of
Marathon," Worthington said.
Monroe County approved a whis-
tle-blower ordinance in February
and Islamorada is considering
one, as well.
"He's grossly misinformed,"
Ward said of Ramsay. "Thank
God he's in that position and not
the position I'm in."

designed to protect people who
expose public corruption.

The council rejected the
award-system clause on May 12,
saying it would be counter-pro-
ductive among employees.
The council also requested a
"local administrative relief"
clause be added to the ordinance,
basically allowing whistle-blower
claims to be resolved by a hearing
examiner at the local level.
The revamped ordinance
comes back to the council when it
meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.


However, in my opinion he is not
following proper protocol. He
wants the cities and the county to
adopt his version of the whistle-
blower program and he wants
added an award program the
entire council was not in favor
of," Ramsay said.
"I believe he should go to the
city manager and explain what
he's trying to do and we should
have discussion as opposed to
giving it to a council member."

look at outsourcing legal services.

else it already accomplished
something good," he said. "I've

In his e-mail, Morales points
out a similar study was conduct-
ed "a couple years ago by the
council at the request of then
Councilmember Marilyn
Tempest."
Councilman Pete Worthington
said he remembers that study and
doesn't want.to pursue another
one.
"The city's been down this
road; my view is you get what
you pay for in this world," he
said. "Jimmy and his firm is a
one-stop shop for legal protection
for the city. There's not an attor-
ney in town that charges that.
He's got 250 lawyers available to
the city at $[80 an hour."
Worthington added that with
just one attorney on staff, the city
would end up paying exorbitant
hourly rates to specialists on cer-
tain cases, such as takings,
human resources or tmion issues.

Clark sold the Islamorada real
estate agency that bore her name
and retired to Miami Beach after
a 20-year career that helped
shape the Upper Keys through
the boom years.
It was about 20 years ago that
Hubert Baudoin' was in the mar-

Clark had a different idea.
"She said, 'You're not looking
for a little shack.' ... A house was

looking at The Moorings, and I
fell in love with it.

her for that, and days that Tve

And in 1999, Clark struck out on

Kim Bagnell Thaler worked as
an agent at Brooks Clark & Co.
from 2000 until Clark sold it in
2005. Clark then worked for the
Corcoran Group until November

"She has changed the face of

she worked on, the waterfront
development Bonefish Bay.
Clark built her businesses on
"sheer determination, honesty and
a lot of hard work," Thaler said.
"Real estate can be very cut-

within their limitations," Smith
said, "but they have to be careful
to stay out of situations for which
they're not properly trained."
That means keeping the thrill
of the dive in check.
Remember the basics:
Monitor depth and air supply, and
stay out of enclosed spaces that
don't offer a clear swim to the
surface.
"No wreck dive is entirely
safe, and the Vandenberg will
have its hazards," Smith said.
"But this will be a very safe dive
for those who stay within their
diving level. This can-be an easy
dive or a tremendously complex
dive, depending on the level.
Most recreational divers should
find plenty to explore in depths
that allow for long bottom tune.
According to widely' used
recreational dive tables, a diver
who stays shallower than 60 feet
has nearly an hour of no-decom-
pression time. Go just 30 feet
deeper, to 90 feet, and that time is
cut in half.
Savor the experience. Do not
try to see all the ship m one dive
because it sunply cannot be done.
No one will be able to fully
take in the length of the 520-foot
former military ship on the first
dive or the first several.
,"Just the exterior surface is
immense," Smith said. "It would
take days of diving to explore just
the surface areas m detail."
Every shipwreck reef in' the
Keys has its signature features:
The big cable spool on the bow of
Marathon's Thunderbolt; the
coral-encrusted crow's nest of the
Eagle off Islamorada; the gun tur-
rets and well deck of the Spiegel
Grove...
On the Vandenberg, be sure to
find the big satellite dishes used
to track missiles. The dishes,. a
prominent element of the sci-
ence-fiction film "Virus," will be
seen in man)/ of the published
underwater photographs from the
Vandenberg. You'll want to say,
"Yeah, I saw those."
The dishes have been removed
from the massive bases that once
held them. They are welded to the
deck and secured with cable.
"Stay within your qualifica-
tions, and you'll have a safe and .
wonderful dive," Smith said.


A diver descending to the
Vandenberg for the first time
should paude on the down line.
Enjoy the brilliant, surreal
glow emanating from the depths
- it won't last long,
Sunlight reflected by the
white-painted surfaces of the
massive shipwreck reef soon will
fade, disappearing altogether
within months.
As the 510-foot Spiegel Grove
off Key Largo has proven, the sea
will quickly claim the
Vandenberg, planned for scuttling
Wednesday six miles off Key
West in 140 feet of water, as its
own, covering its chalk-colored
steel hull with a soft green blan--
ket of sub-aquatic life.
. Only those who see the wreck
in the days after the retired mih-
tary ship settles.on the sea bottom
will be able to conjure that deep-
water gleamin the nund's eye.
Diving tp a newly scuttled
shipwreck is a rare underwater
adventure a treasure of the
memory.
The Vandenberg will beckon-
divers for decades to come but it
never again will look like it does
in the weeks after it slips beneath
the waves.
The sinking is scheduled for
Wednesday but the official all-
clear for public diving will take
longer.
BEfore the world's newest
shipwreck reef opens to recre-
ational divers, 4 team trained by
project organizers with the
Artificial Reefs of the Keys
group will scour the shipwreck to
ensure safety.
Safety-team divers will look
for (Indetonated explosives (they
know where every charge is
located) and check to see that the
sinking has not created structural
hazards in easily reached areas.
"The good news about the
Vandenberg is that it will be a
shallow and accessible wreck,"
said Bob Smith, the professional
dive trainer who leads the clear-
ance operation. "That's also the
bad news aboulthe Vandenberg."
"It will bea piece of cake for
recreational divers who stay

A diver (top) explores the 'Spiegel Grove' a few weeks after the
510-foot former military vessel opened to-diving off Key Largo
in June 2002. Marine growth already had started taking hold,
and eventually obscured most of the white-painted surfaces.
The bridge of the 'Spiegel Grove,' seen above soon after it
settled on the sea floor off Key Largo, still showed white in the
depths 100 down. Early divers on the 'Vandenberg' will see
similar sights. .

President Truman.
McGovem, age 86, spends
half the year in his home state of
South Dakota, and half the year
in Saint Augustine, Fla., which
he says he chose as a winter
home because of his interest in
history.
Senator McGovern was the
Democratic nominee for presi-
dent in 1972, and although he
lost every state but one to
President Richard Nixon in that
year, he won the lasting admira-
tion of many young people at the
time who were, like McGovem,
opposed to the war in Vietnam.
About 70 people attended the
ceremony on May 15, held to re-
dedicate the two-story Little
White House, which has been
renovated over the course of the
last seven years to return it to the
way it looked in 1949, when it
was renovated by a Miami
designer for the Truman family.
The ceremony on May 15
also opened the Truman sympo-
sium, held at the Key West
Marriott Beachside Resort on
Saturday, May 16. One of
Truman's two grandsons -
Clifton Truman Daniel came to
Key West for the symposium

George McGovem arrivedin
Key West on Thursday, May 14,
invited to serve as the keynote
speaker and honored guest at the
re-dedication of the Harry S.
Trtunan Little White House. He


needed at least a third of
Republicans to vote for him in
order to win. McGovern, a histo-
ry professor, former minister and
World War II bomber pilot, said
he was leading in the campaign
until his opponent started run-
ning full-page ads in newspa-
pers, accusing him of being
uninterested in the security of
the country and implying that he
was a friend of Communists
because he wanted to open an
embassy in China.

Clifton Truman Daniel (above left), the eldest grandson of the
president, spoke briefly on Friday night. McGovern (above far
right) told the crowd at the re-dedication ceremony that it was
"an outrage" that Truman's approval rating was so low when
he left the White House in 1953. Ed Swift (right) introduced
McGovern, telling the audience that he was a life-long
Democrat and had voted for McGovern for president in.1972.


ice, only 22 percent of the
American people said they had
confidence in his leadership,"
said McGovern, calling it an
"outrage."
McGovern ended his speech
by telling the story of his daugh~
ter Terry, whom he said suffered
from the same ailment that
afflicted President Abraham
Lincoln --- a severe depression.
He recalled the night that he and
his wife were relaxing at home
after dinner, and heard the-door-
bell ring. Opening the door, he
saw a minister and a police offi-
- cer, who told him that his daugh-
ter had been found facedown in
a snowdrift in Madison, Wis.
She'd frozen to death.
"When Terry died it was
news around the world," remem-
bered the senator, whose life has
held so much loss but who, at
the age of 86, seems undaunted.

and make an appearance for
me?' And to my surprise, he
said, 'I'll be out there."'
Truman flew to South
Dakota, and rode in a parade
with McGovern in Sioux Falls,
the largest city in the state, sit-
ting up in the back seat of a con-
vertible. While they were riding,
McGovern says he told the for-
mer president about his "prob-
lem" with the opponent who was
tagging him as sympathetic to
Communists and unconcerned
with national security. .
"He said, 'George Just kick
'em in the ass with the facts,'"
related McGov.ern, and the
crowd burst out laughing.
Truman, McGovern remem-
bered, left office in 1953 with
one of the lowest approval rat-
ings of any president ever.

Stacie Krupa


Stacle Krupa was born in Johnstown.Pa She began painting seriously at the age of 12 when
her father persuaded a professor to let her tr\ --hanging out" and participating in his classes at the
Orlando Museum of Art. Krupa went on to earn a bachelor's degree in psychology from the
University of Central Florida.and then to stud_1 art at the Pennsyllania Academy of Fine Art in
Philadelphia, where Mary Cassalt and Thomas Eakins both studied.and in the Mount Royal
School of Art graduate program at the Mar land institute College of An.
In 1996. Krupa returned to the Orlando area to work ai an artist. She opened her first gallery
in Winter Park, Fla. in that same lear. In 1998 she moled to Islamorada and opened the Stacie
Krupa Studio Galler1 of Art. While operating the gallery, she continued her formal education,
earning a Master of Fine Arts in painting in "'001 from the Unilersiti of Alianu.
Since graduatinU. Krupa has focused on her art and assoelated businesses. The sea life of
Islamorada has inspired her work. as can be seen in many of the large-scale murals she's painted
- like the "Saillish Impulse Active" at Sandy Cole Marina at mile marker 74.5 and the
"Restorathe Rhapsody" which Krupa painted directly on the walls of the hyperbaric chamber at
Mariners Hospital.
Krupa says she likes to live on the edge and finds it fun to just "dance there She paints every
day and says she believes that masterpleces come from endless years of painting, contemplating,
creating, pustung-personal limits and from "adouch.of happy accidents."

studio and inspires their cre-
ativity," says Krupa of creat-
ing the paintings with the stu-
dents. "Between the kids'
childlike curious approach
and my training and back-
ground, you will see creations
showing a beautiful flow of
the art spirit that comes out on
the canvas."
The evening begins.with an
art preview reception and con-
tinues with a gourmet five-
course dinner and a live auc-
tion. This year, for the first
time, paintings will be paired
with related items
. "I wanted to offer some-
thing different this year,
something that would bring
the art pieces to life," says
Krupa, "so each painting is
paired with a creative treat
based on the subject of the
painting."
For instance, seventh giad-
er Christian Owens painted a
sailfish that is paired with a
chartered sail fishing trip;

The $125 ticket cost
includes a five-course meal,
wine pairing and the exclu-

Seventh grader Carlo
Abarca agreed.
"I painted flowers, which
was different for me since I
usually paint beach scenes.
This experience gave me the
confidence to try something
new," said Abarca.
In addition to the complet-
ed paintings, one of the art .
auction-items is a blank can-
vas. The winning bidder will
get a personal commissioned
piece painted by Krupa and

run average (2.7) and strikeouts
(70).
As leadoff hitter, he rang up a
.333 average (26-for-78) with 19

centage of.429.
Junior left-hander LeDarius
- Sanders was named the

ended with a trip to the state Class
3A regional playoffs.
"We had a great year against a
tough schedule," said Meyers,
"and we could be even better next
year, considering the people we
have coming back. We've got
some really good people who did-
n't get much chance to show what

ogist at Horace O'Bryant
Middle School and has been
working with Conch players in
informal gym sessions. -
Principal John Welsh said
Davis was under the false
Impression that the school was
looking for a new coach, "but
that couldn't be further frotti the
truth. I guess he was listening to
the Coconut Telegraph."
Davis said Welsh told him
that "he- wanted me to Atay in
the position because he felt I
was doing a good job with the
overall program and that I was a
positive influence for the'play-
'"
ersThurston, who met recently
with Davis and athletic director
Peter Fraga, said he was con-
tacted about the job a year ago
by Fraga.
"He said that [this past sea-
sonJ would be Davis last and
asked if I would be interested in
nievitig back home and being
the coach," Thurston said.
Fraga- denied contacting
Thurston, adding, "I have noth-
ing to say about
this."
He did say that Thurston
"has a great basketball mind
and I hope he citn help our kids
as an assistant or head coach in
the future."
Thurston, who coached high
school and AAU teams in
Minnesota, said, "When the
chance comes along to coach
your ,alma mater, that's excit-
in I'm not disappointed that
Paul Davis is staying but I am
disappointed that the opportuni-
ty to coach is not going to be
there."
Fraga, who claimed the job
was never open, said Davis has
done a good job raising money
and h is 'a "good relationship
with the kids, which is impor
tant."
The Conchs were 11-121ast
season, their best record under
Davis, a disciplinarian who
took oveir in 2005 for Bill
Butler, who stepped down after
five successful seasons.
"I thought we niade good
gains from the previous three
seasons," Davis said. "When I
took over, I had players who-
were used to the old system and
some were not willing to buy in
to what I was trying to imple-
a ment. I had to-deal with that for

Paul Davis isn't going
anywhere, at least this com-

i o eseasnocr it'll be his
three seasons.
"I've alivays said'that for a
program to develop, a coach
needs three to five years. I feel
I've done a pretty good job with
the team. I know we can be a
good team and my goal is to
continue to do what I can to
make us competitive."
Davis, 39, who is also the JV
football coach, said he expects
to coach basketball beyond next
season --- "unless the adminis-
tration says otherwise."



Valdez

Still.reigns

A recheck of the score-
book last week by Key West
High basketball coach Paul
Davis found that sophomore
point guard Keith Valdez s
record consecutive free-
throw streak ended at 4-
games instead of 44 as was
reported in Keynoter stories
in January.
Valdez broke the state
record on Jan. 17 when he
made 13 of 13 foul shots in a
game against St. Brendan,
extendmg his streak to 40.
The previous record of 36
had been held for more thin
25 years by Gabe Corphiam
of Hiakah Miami Lakes.
Valdez made his first two
free throws against Fort
Myers on Jan. 23 before
finally missing.
