Pribramsky: No 'moral authority'


SCHOOLS /From I

Logan will move to an open posi-
tion at nearby Stanley Switlik
Elementary School.
Acevedo said these and other
moves represent about $320,000
of the $3 million in non-instruc-
tional cuts ordered by the school
board to bring the 2009-10 budg-
et down to $86.7 million.
Principals and assistant princi-
pals are considered non-instruc-
tional administrative positions.
Some district employees have
enough years of service to collect
retirement benefits while they
keep working.,
"We're having to lay off peo-
ple," Acevedo said, "and it's better
if it's a person eligible for retire-
ment and has a source of income."
However, at least one board
member said Acevedo may not
have the "moral authority" to cut
these principals because of the
alleged theft of at least $180,000
in School District money. by the
superintendent's wife, Monique
Acevedo, and state reports citing
lax oversight by Acevedo's
administration.
"There's a good chance come
next school year that Randy is not
our superintendent, and he's
making these kinds of decisions
that are just tainted," board mem-


ber Steve Pribramsky said. "We
as a board can't do anything with
hiring or firing personnel. We can
just threaten to withhold approval
of budget, which I've already
said I would do."
The most scrutiny could come
if Welsh is removed.
He was the one who first
reported to the media that
Monique Acevedo may have
taken money from a Key West
High School fundraising account,
as well as other cash.
Monique Acevedo, the former
adult education coordinator, has
been charged with stealing
$180,000 in tuition fees for class-
es she oversaw. Another $118,000
in district money she spent looks
to have been for personal items,
according to a state audit.
Welsh said he would be "total-
ly baffled" if he doesn't return
next year.
"It seem to be probably the
most inopportune time to bring
more controversy and discontent
to the employees," Welsh said.
"If I were in [the superinten-
dent's] shoes, I would be looking
for non-controversial methods to
reduce the budget."
* Welsh said 99 of his 105-per-
son staff signed a petition sup-
porting him as principal, and that
petition was given to Leon
Fowler, president of the teachers'


union, to present to the School
Board at its meeting on Tuesday.
That didn't happen.
"Leon gave it directly to the
superintendent. I'm not sure
why," Welsh said.
Martin said Acevedo told him
the budget was the only reason
that he won't return next year.
Martin earns around $103,000
annually and Welsh earns near
$107,000. Both are in the final
year of the state's Deferred
Retirement Option Program,
which allows workers to begin
collecting retirement benefits
while still working and earning a
salary for up to five years.
"I wanted to stay," Martin said.
"I knew I was at the end'of DROP,
but I could've left for a month and
then got rehired back. I offered to
come back for less pay, but it did-
n't work out that way.
"I still have a lot to give. and
the community, I think, likes me,
but I'm not a saber-rattler," he
added. "This has been a big part
of my life for 36 years, and I
can't thank the community
enough for what they've done for
me and my wife."
Martin said he was offered a
position as an "intervention
coach" funded with federal stim-
ulus money, but he said he would
most likely be a substitute teacher
next year.


How she fell remains a mystery

you assume they were shot.'
But the autopsy showed she
died of blunt force trauma to the
head indirectly caused by her
friend Hauck, the shooting vic-
tim, trying to get away.
''Investigators now believe
Pazo was pumping gas when the
shooting began. Hauck, in the
driver's seat,.hit the gas pedal to
try to avoid the bullets.
Either Hauck's car hit Pazo or
Pazo was trying to-jump out of
the way. Either way, Pazo fell,.
slamming her head against the
concrete, which killed-her.
"We can't tell if she was
bumped by Jillian's car because
there is no physical evidence of
the car impact," Crane said. But
"she was either knocked down by
the car or trying to get out of the
way."
Pazo died at, the scene and

says.
Wednes-.
'day, scores
PAZO turned out at a
memorial
service in Key West for Pazo, a
fourth-generation Conch who
had moved to Broward County in
2007.
"She was the life of the party,"
said her sister, Shanel Arroyo.
"She was the gWtter in the family.
I think that's what everyone is
going to miss the most about
her."
At Key West High School,
Pazo was a cheerleader, a mem-
ber of the school's Beta Club for
achieving a grade point average
of at least 3.0 and active in stu-
dent government. She also
tutored 'other' students who- had


trouble reading, writing and
speaking English;
When she died, she was assis-
tant manager of a Forever 21
clothing store in Fort Lauderdale
and wanted to pursue fashion as a
career. She recently graduated
from American Intercontinental
University with a degree in fash-
ion marketing.
"She was kind of in that wait-
ing moment to, see what was
next," Arroyo said.
Pazo is survived by father
Louie, mother Carrie, brother
Louie Jr. and her sister, Arroyo.
The Pazo family has asked
that memorial donations be made
to the Brooke Marie Pazo
Memorial Scholarship Fund,
which will provide a scholarship
to a Key West High School grad-
uate interesting in pursuing her
passion for fashion design. Those
donations can be made in care of
the Pazo family, 3014 Flagler

Gulf War vet
found floating
off Keys bridge
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmnccarthy@keynoter.com

The body of a man found
floating on the bayside of the
Seven Mile Bridge Monday
morning has been identified as
44-year-old Titusville resident
Robert Kramer.
His 1992 Chevrolet truck was
found at the south end of the
bridge Monday and contained
both empty and full beer cans,
sleeping pills and two empty pill
bottles for high blood pressure
medication.
Kramer's brother Stephen
told the Keynoter via e-mail that
Robert was a former U.S.
Marine who'd had a difficult
time since fighting in the first
Gulf War in the early 1990s. He
was a native of Millbrook, Ala.,
and leaves behind one son.


"He was in the first Gulf War
and has been fighting that war
ever since. He has been to the
Keys and loved the relaxed
atmosphere down there, as do I,"
he said. "He loved sitting at the
beach to clear his head and then
go north back to 'reality.' I am
still not sure as to what hap-
pened this time, and I guess him
and the Lord know that answer,
but he will be missed by us and
his son."
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said an autopsy per-
formed on Robert Kramer
revealed no signs of foul play.
His body was found on the
south end of the bridge, found
by a man fishing there about
9:40 a.m. The U.S. Coast Guard
responded and pulled Kramer
from the water.
Kramer had a Florida driver's
license in his pocket with a
Titusville address on it.

Madruga named state's top prosecutor


Berry Award
given for his
years of success
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A year shy of two decades
working as a prosecutor in the
Monroe County State Attorney's
Office, Manuel "Manny" Madruga
has seen it all he's put murder-
ers, sex offenders and all sorts of
other bad guys behind bars.
Now, his body of work has
been rewarded: The Florida
Prosecuting Attorneys Association
has bestowed on him its 2009
Gene Berry Award.
"The award is considered the
highest honor a prosecutor can
receive," he said. "I was excited
about the personal recognition.
There are a lot of people that
work here [in Monroe County]
that are every bit as talented as
the individuals that work
throughout the state."'
Madruga graduated from the
University of Miami School of
Law in 1990 and went straight to
Key West, where he's worked for
the State Attorney's Office ever
since. )
The Florida Prosecuting
Attorneys Association comprises
all of the state attorneys, in
Florida's 20 judicial circuits.
Madruga was selected for the
award by five of those state attor-
neys, who make up a search com-
mittee that considers respect of
the law and the courts, responsi-
bility to residents and community
involvement; state attorneys
themselves are not eligible to
receive the award.
.Madruga was nominated by
his colleague, Chief Assistant
State Attorney Donald Barrett. In
his nominating letter, Barrett
wrote, "Manny is. much more
than a resume or a list of accom-
plishments. Manny is, in short, a
lawyer's lawyer. He is an inspira-
tion to other lawyers."


Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEY
Manny Madruga prosecutes many of the high-profile cases in
the Keys. Among them was the murder case that sent Michael
Tanzi to Death Row.


SMadruga often gets assigned
some of the more high-profile
cases in the Keys.
For example, in 2003, he got a
conviction in the murder case of
Michael Tanzi, who strangled
Miami Herald ad supervisor
Janet Acosta and dumped her
body on Blimp Road on Cudjoe
Key. Tanzi is one of three Monroe
County convicts on Death Row.
More recently, he led the pros-
ecution last year of Louise
LaTorre. LaTorre was Monroe
County's social services director
when, in,April 2006, he crashed
his car head-on into one driven by
Nadia Bowman, who then lived on
Big Coppitt Key. She nearly died.

Keep Kolhage's seat

vacant until election

Should they or shouldn't they?
The Key West City Commission 'on Tuesday wrestled with
the decision to appoint an interim commissioner to fill Dan
Kolhage's seat for the four months remaining in his term.
Kolhage is resigning his commission post after accepting a
job in North Carolina, where he is moving his family.
Initially, Kolhage planned to serve out the remainder of his
term, staying at his father's house in order to comply with dis-
trict residency rules. But the new job and a chance at a fresh
start in Boone set the stage for an empty seat on the seven-
member commission.
There are reasons to want an interim appointment, since the
remaining six could find close votes or ties kill action during
the critical summer budget cycle.
There are also fears that any interim appointment gives that
person a leg up if he or she decides to run for the office, which
is a four-year term.
Many cite the example of Commissioner Mark Rossi, who
was appointed to fill the remainder of th6 term of Merili
McCoy, who died in 2005. Rossi ran for the seat and beat
George Halloran by 27 votes in a November runoff after plac-
ing second to Halloran in the October 2005 election.
_ At Tuesday's meeting, Commissioner Barry Gibson signaled
he wouldn't even consider an interim appointment unless that
person agreed in advance not to seek the post this fall.
Kolhage says he's already talked with former Commissioner
Joe Pais, who has agreed to those terms. That may prove to be
an important point when the commission considers this at its
June 16 meeting.
Here's a different perspective on having an interim commis-
sioner.
It's been 14 years since Pais ended his four-year term on the
commission (1991-95). Think of how much has changed since
then. Is he really the best prepared to step in, even if only for a
few months?.
Budget choices this summer will not be easy. Sales tax rev-
enues are down statewide; building fees are in free-fall. And
Key West's tax roll is shrinking by another 8.9 percent for the
budget year to come.
City Manager Jim Scholl has demonstrated his experience in
making tough expense cuts last year and this year under policy
guidelines set by the elected commission..
The remaining six commissioners should pledge to work
together over the next four months without needing a tiebreak-
er sitting in the wings.

There was no ill intent in trying to dive new wreck


EDITOR:
Re: The story about me getting cited by
marine officers for violating the restricted area.
around the Vandenberg before it was open for
public diving.
The bestinformation we could obtain in writ-
ing was that the ship would be open to recreation-
al divers after the clearance divers cleared the
wreck, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration divers installed the buoys.
The-published date was the 28th of May.
Departing at 7:55 a.m., we intended to check the
Vandenberg site to see if it was indeed open. If
not, we intended to dive Joe's Tug, a nearby
wreck. We had our VHF radio on and we were
monitoring it. We heard no U.S, Coast Guard
warnings about the area around the Vandenberg
still being restricted. In fairness, though, there is
wind noise in an open-cockpit boat traveling at 25
mph in choppy seas, so we might have missed if.
We checked the area, and since there were no
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Coast Guard or Key West police
boats there as in the past, and there-were no mark-
ings on the balls or floats to indicate the area was


restricted, we assumed the wreck was open.
Over the years I developed a close working
relationship with Reef Relief; Bill Causey, for-
merly the superintendent of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary and now the National
'Sanctuary Program's southeast regional director;
and the old Florida Marine Patrol staff.
We monitored the Sanctuary Preservation
Areas, collected fishing line, and reported poach-
ers and'unusual reef occurrences such as coral
bleaching/diseases, algae spreads and vessel dam-
age. Since the FWC took over the policing role
from the Florida Marine Patrol, tactics have
become more and -more heavy handed.
I have a clear record as a Professional
Association of Dive Instructors dive instructor
and a Coast Guard-licensed captain, with many
commendations over the past 20 years. I am not
about to risk this by violating regulations.
We were working with the best information
we had. We didn't read, hear or see anything to
preclude us from diving the wreck. In fact, quite
the opposite.

Volunteers, sponsors' generosity is appreciated


EDITOR:
In these difficult economic times, it would be
justified to spend all of our energy on only our
own family's finances. I am so grateful to report
that it is different in Marathon.
Recently, two groups came forward to help
Keys Area Interdenominational Resources keep
helping our local residents. The Save Our
-Conchs group, headed by Sharen Grossmann,
held a 1950s-style dance at Sombrero Country
Club, which was sponsored by Fishermen's
Hospital. Sombrero General Manager Josh
Mothliner and Stan Haines of Collector's Corner
were the Richie and Fonzie emcees of the
evening. Chuckie D spun records and profession-
al dancers Theo and Ganine taught us how to jit-
terbug; Magic by Rich Lessig and doowop by the
Island HIarmony singers rounded out the evening.
Good music, good food, good friends. The
evening was a great success and the efforts of all
were so appreciated.

shadowed by talk of the superintendent's

our children, has become the focus of attention.
How sad for the students.
They have. worked very hardfor this day -

'Vandenberg' is cause for celebration


EDITOR:
When the 522-foot decommis-
sioned military ship Gen. Hoyt S.
Vandenberg slipped beneath the sur-
face on May 27, it delivered an eco-
nomic and ecological shot in the arm
for those of us fortunate enough to
live in the Florida Keys.
Like the rest of the country, the
people in the Keys have struggled
amid the .economic troubles of the
past few years, yet we have held
together as the unique kind of com-
munity we: are. We have always
drawn strength from each other.
Our natural resources here in the
Keys are beyond magnificent, but we
all know they are fragile, and they
'require a special measure of protec-
tion and wise management. Our new
Vandenberg artificial reef is a reflec-
tion of that effort.
Since my grandmother was born
in Key West in 1895, and for four
generations since then, my family has
fished, scuba dived, snorkeled and
played in the breathtakingly beautiful
waters between Key Largo and the
Dry Tortugas. Over the decades,
we've witnessed the ever-increasing,
relentless pressure that has come to
bear on our waters as more and more
people have discovered this paradise.
At its final resting spot, in the
Florida Keys National Marine -
Sanctuary, seven miles south-south-


east of Key West in 140 feet of water,
the ship has begun attracting divers
and anglers away from the delicate
coral reefs in our waters.
Equally important is the projection
that the Vandenberg will boost
Monroe County's economy by $7.5
million per year and create 195 full-
and part-time jobs. It will lure divers
and anglers from around the globe.
The Vandenberg will attract 150
fish species over the next five years.
It will provide stable habitat for them
for at least a century.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission played a
major role in providing funding and
technical assistance for the project
since early 2001. But it took a team
effort with many others.
Thousands of delighted onlookers
watched as 44 carefully placed explo-
sive charges blasted holes in the
ship's hull. One minute and 54 sec-
onds later, the retired warship settled
onto the ocean floor. It was some-
thing to see, and it is cause for cele-
bration.
As chairman of the FWC, I am.
proud of the contributions that our
artificial reef, law enforcement and
community relations team and all of
our partners made to the Vandenberg
project.

Collaboration needed to reduce waste


EDITOR:
In light of the attention brought to
the extension of the county's solid-
waste contracts, which were
approved 3-2 during a recent County
Commission meeting, I feel the need
to set-the record straight on Green
Living and Energy Education's posi-
tion and involvement in this matter.
GLEE has no allegiance or prefer-
ence for any particular contractor for
solid waste and recycling. What
GLEE wants is the best deal for the
municipalities, the taxpayers and the
environment. We will work together
with any service provider and gov-
ernment staff to further the goal of,
reducing waste.
The question of collaborating for
a request for proposals countywide is,
a good one, and one we have sug-
gested in the past. GLEE's Keyswide
Sustain-Ability Project was created
precisely to foster just such collabo-
ration among our local governments
to achieve efficiencies and
economies of scale, not just in mat-
ters of solid waste but also energy-
savings projects, climate-change mit-
igation and adaptation planning,


exploration of biodiesel production
and other sustainability measures.
GLEE hosted a summit on R4 -
reduce, reuse, recycle and rot in
early November in anticipation of
the upcoming contract renewals.
Unfortunately, our requests to be,
involved in the crafting and review
of new contracts were denied by the
county until the negotiations were
finished.
A subsequent meeting with coun-
ty officials and solid-waste vendors
was very positive and resulted in
pledges of continued collaboration,
including quarterly reviews and con-
sideration of future amendments rec-
ommended by GLEE to address sys-
temic changes. We are encouraged
by this and we-take the pledges in'
good faith.
Anyone who has questions for
GLEE is .encouraged to go to
www.keysglee.com to learn more,
send an e-mail, attend GLEE meet-
ings and volunteer time to help bring
about positive change.

Scout enlists welcome h
EDITOR:
Over this past month, I haVe had the
privilege of leading Boy-Scout Troop 901 in
the installation offthe AJ. Smith and Yailen
Carrillo Memorial Garden at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School in Marathon.
This garden would never have become a
reality without the financial support, the
physical labor and the selfless giving of
many hours of time by special members of
our Marathon community.
I am deeply indebted to Switlik Principal
Barbara Wright for all of her assistance in
the execution of the project. Mrs. Wright,
Assistant Principal Brett Unke, Toni Appell
and Willie Gonzalez of Gonzalez
Landscaping gave me much-needed guid-
ance and advice in designing the garden.
Mr. Gonzalez also immediately offered to
donate the trees, the use of his equipment,
without which we would have been unable
to plant the trees, and his invaluable time.
Willie's brother Luis was involved for the
duration of the project, as well,

elp for project
A member of the Stanley Switlik staff,
Toni Appell, generously purchased the
stone bench that is the centerpiece of the
garden. Marathon's Collectors Comer gen-
erously donated the plaque for the bench.
D'Asign Source constructed the bench and
ensured its safe delivery.
AJ.'s father, Brian Smith, bought 125
bags of mulch to give the garden a finished
look and he joined us on the day of installa-
tion.
Last, but certainly not least, there would
be no Troop 901 without the time and com-
mitment of Scoutmaster Gary Wilson and
Assistant Scoutmaster Mike Sipes.
J am now one major step closer to
becoming an Eagle Scout and I hope to
complete the final steps over the next week.
I profoundly realize that I could never have
achieved my goal without the team effort of
both community members and Troop 901. I
am very grateful to everyone involved.

No room for rude boaters


EDITOR:
On March 30, we went out on our 21-
foot boat. We launched from John
Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. It started
to storm and we headed back to shore along
with several other boats. We made it back
to the mangrove channel and at this time it -
was no longer raining, so there was no
major hurry to get to shore.
The boats behind us wanted to go faster
through the mangroves than we did, so we
pulled to the side to let them pass. We
received a very unpleasant and dangerous
thank you from one large fishing boat. To
that captain and I know he knows I am
talking about him I would like to say
that he stinks.
He took off so fast and created such a


large wake that he almost tipped our boat.
His large wake also caused a 2-year-old
baby to be thrown from his seat to the floor.
My dog also fell and he is my "only child."
He went by without a care in the world. In
fact, he had a smile on his face. I wish that I
got the name of his boat so that I could call
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard.
He should have consideration out there
on the water. He could have seriously
injured us all. Shame on him. The sad part
is that people actually pay him money to
take them out fishing.. Man, I wish I got the
name of his boat.

Tom Van Lent, Everglades Foundation senior-scientist, examines one of the gated culverts used
to control freshwater flows near the southernmost point of the C- 11 canal system. Waters dis-
charged through the structure flow directly into Manatee Bay and Barnes Sound. Van Lent says
the water is needed in the southern Everglades.


S"If \ ou don't fix the problems
created by the C-111, you d6n't
fix Florida Bay. It's that simple,"
he said. -.
The C-111 canal system is
such'a key element of Florida
Bay restoration that -members of
the National Academies of
Science cap their Everglades
meeting in Key Largo this week
with a field trip to the C-111 sys-
tem to see its effects on freshwa-
ter flow through the system.
"The [C-111] canal is sucking
what little fresh water there is in
the southern Everglades right
out," Van Lent said. He was pre-
viously on staff with the state's
South Florida Water
Management District and the
U.S. Department of Interior.
The C-111 system, 20 miles
long, basically drains flood
water from much of southern
Miami-Dade County all the way
to U.S. 41.
The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers built Florida's flood-
control system on orders from
Congress.
Now,' scientific consensus.
says the flood-control network
diverts and %wastes fresh "ater
badly needed to preserve the
remaining Eiergiades and to
restore a more natural ecosystem
to Florida Ba,
"The %water is supposed to
move slowly over a large area -
the RiJet of Grass," Van Lent


said on a Wednesday field trip.
"Now the C-111 is like a
super highway for water, It's
Interstate 95 compared to a
meandering dirt road," he said.
The Corps of Engineers is
working with the Water
Management District on a -stag-
gering assortment of Everglades
restoration plans, including
changes to the C-ill system.
The Corps has an-open-com-
ment period through June 23 on
the western portion of a spreader
canal, intended to more closely
replicate the sheet flow through
the Everglades south of U.S. 41,
also known as the Tamiami
Trail.
A $41 million spreader canal
running underneath the 18-Mile
Stretch of U.S. 1 was outlined
during 2006 meetings.
Construction was planned to
begin in November 2007 for
completion in mid-2010, but
work hasn't started:
Plans have yet to be finalized,
contingent upon changing over-,
all, designs for Everglades
restoration and financial issues.
The Everglades Foundation
strongly endorses .te;. state
acquisition of 73.000 acresin the
Everglades Aericultural Area as "
a necessary step toward restor- -
ing Flonda Bay-
-The lands can be used to-cre-
ate massive marshes that. can
both store fiesh. water and


remove pollutants, according to
the group.
An earlier plan to store water
in old rock quarries and under-
ground aquifers was largely con-
tingent on experimental or
non-existent technology, Van
Lent said.
"I really didn't know if that
plan was feasible," he said. "But
with the [Everglades
Agricultural Area] sites, as engi-
neers, we know how to do it."
In addition to blocking fresh-
water sheet flow from reaching
eastern' Florida Bay, the C-1ll
system also was responsible for
occasional widespread fish kills
in Manatee Bay and Barnes
Sound. Huge amounts of fresh
water were released through
gated culverts just east of U.S. 1
into the brackish system.
"We need to keep things from
swinging so wildly," Van Lent
said,
Meanwhile,-, a ;new iC-11
bridge takes shape over the canal
near the. count, line between
Miami-Dade and Monroe.
"VWe were hoping the canal
would be closed before they
started work on the bridge." Van
Lent said "But the bndge got
here first "

Everglades Foundation scien-
tist Tom Van Lent pointed to the
50-yard-wide expanse of the C-
111 canal, a deep channel brim-
ming with fresh water amid a
parched ecosystem.
"All this fresh water is. dra-
matically in the wrong place,"
Van Lent said. "And this canal is
the culprit." -

CRB test case


going to court


Board wants
a ruling on
subpoena power
By SEAN .KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

-The stage could be set on
Monday to determine just how
much power Key West's civilian
police oversight board has.
That's when the attorney for
the city's Citizen Review Board
intends to file a lawsuit in
Monroe County Circuit Court in
an effort to compel a police ser-
geant to testify before the board.
"We're going forward with our
lawsuit to enforce the subpoena
against Pablo Rodriguez," board
attorney Robert Cintron said.-
"Our circuit courts are bound to
follow the opinion" of the Third
District-Court of Appeal.
What's at question locally
and statewide is the ability of
review boards to assert subpoena
power over law enforcement offi-
cials and documents.
On May 29, the Fifth District
Court of Appeal, whose jurisdic-
tion is the Orlando area, struck
down review board subpoena
power in a case that had the
Orange County Sheriff's Office
pitted against the Orange County
Citizens Review Board.
However, in Miami, the Third
District Court of Appeal, whose
jurisdiction includes Monroe
County, upheld such subpoena
power in the case of Miami Police
Chief John Timoney vs. the Miami
Civilian Investigative Panel.
"To the extent that the Timoney
decision of the Third DCA and the
decision of the Fifth DCA are in
conflict, then the opinion of the
Third governs us," Cintron told
the Keynoter. "Ultimately, the
Florida Supreme Court may have
to restore that dispute."
The Key West Citizen Review
Board has been trying to get Key
West Police Department Sgt.
Pablo Rodriguez to answer a sub-
poena to get his testimony about
a complaint filed against him by
Omar Brown.
Two men robbed Beachcomber
Jewelers on North Roosevelt
Boulevard on Sept. 2, 2006.
Brown became a suspect when a
cleaning lady at the store gave


police a description of a car the
suspects might have been in. It
apparently was the same car that
Brown's ex-girlfriend had report-
ed stolen.
Police went to Brown's house
and reportedly saw a hammer and
gloves inside, through a glass
door. Brown admitted driving the
*car but refused to let police inside.
So that day, Rodriguez filed
an affidavit for a search warrant,
and wrote to Judge Wayne Miller,
"Your affiant has known Omar
Brown for at least six years and
has arrested him in the past."
Brown had been convicted of
other charges in the past includ-
ing drug counts and robbery.
He was later arrested for. the
jewelry store heist, but later filed
a complaint with the Citizen
Review Board claiming
Rodriguez lied in the affidavit -
records indicate Rodriguez never
arrested Brown.
That's when the CRB opted to
subpoena Rodriguez, to set the
record straight; Rodriguez, on the
advice of police union lawyers,
has refused to testify.
Brown's robbery case is pend-
ing.

It's now really a home


Habitech House
put on stilts,
move-in closer
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccafthy@keynoter.com

Numerous volunteers and
onlookers braved the hot sun
Thursday afternoon to see the
much-talked-about Habitech
House begin its final journey to
a. Bonita Drive lot behind
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
The 1,200-square-foot, three
bedroom, two-bath house is the
result of a, partnership between
the. Monroe County School
District and Habitat for
Humanity of the Middle Keys.
Marathon High School stu-
dents built it in four sections in
:nine months urider the -super% i-
sion 'of instructor Glenn
Naklickj .. ,
,Perhaps' most interested
Thursday was Sarah Adams, a
third-grade -teacher at Stanley
S\\itlik Elementary School
.\ ho. in March. learned she'd be
the recipient of the house.
She was on hand to watch
workers roll her new. home -
which cleared.bay doors by just


half an inch on either side -
out of the Marathon High con-
struction lab.
The 1998 Marathon High
graduate said it was an "incred-
ible sight" to watch the pieces
of the house roll out of the bay,
get attached to a crane, be lifted
up into the air and then be low-
ered onto flatbed trucks in the
school parking lot.
"I was thinking to myself
that not many people get to see
their house taken out of the high
school they graduated from,"
Adams said. "I'm starting to
picture it all together now."
Many onlookers congratulat-
ed Naklicki Thursday, but he
was quick to point out how ,hard
the roughly 50 students
involved worked on the house.
"It's a tremendous feeling of
accomplishment for what the
kids were able to do, what they.
were able to pull together start-
ing with a limited amount of
knowledge and being creative
themselves," he said.
"Glenn and I are so proud of
what we've done with the stu-
dents; it's just remarkable. It's
never been done in Monroe
County and we're so proud,"


said Mark Hooper, the School
District's careers and.technical
education coordinator.
He said that. having Habitat
name an owner of the house
while the students constructed it
put things in perspective for the
students.
"That's when it changed
from the Habitech House to the
Habitech Home. Once there's a
face associated to it, that's when

Church, Legion post seek funding


Few turn out
for TIF-funded
improvements
By SEAN KINNEY-
skinney@keynoter.corn

A Thursday night public
meeting was supposed to
include a brainstorming session
for possible projects in Bahama
Village to be paid through\ a
special city tax fund.
But based on the turnout,
only one Bahama Village resi-
dent has a project in mind.;
another suggestion came from a
group based outside of District
VI, where the tax money must
be spent.
The so-called tax increment
fund, or TIF as it's known, is a
,dedicated property tax fund
'used to redevelop areas of
District VI Eligible projects
include preservation of historic
buildings, and public infral-


structure such as parks, side-
walks and lighting.
There's a little more than $2
million in the fund. That's after
expenditures of .-$539,000
approved earlier this year for
restoration at Cornish
Memorial AME Zion Church,
Bethel AME Church and the
Masonic Lodge on Truman
Avenue.
Thursday, Emma Street resi-
dent Samuel Leggett told the
seven-member Bahama Village
Redevelopment Advisory
Committee, which gives spend-
ing recommendations to the
Key West City Commission,
that American Legion Post 168
needs attention.
American Legion members
built their .post in the early
1950s and operated it as a club
and event venue. Among the
famous folks that have graced
the club's small stage are Dinah
Washington, B.B. King, James


Brown. and K.C. and the
Sunshine Band. *
"We are still trying to hold
on to that building, which is an
asset to the community,"
Leggett said. "It's badly in need
of construction work" and
needs roof work.
Gwendolyn Magby, pastor
of Trinity Presbyterian Church
on Simonton Street, suggested
that her church, although not in
District VI where the special
tax money is required to be
spent, receive money because
"99.9 percent" of the congrega-
tion is from Bahama Village.
She wants funding for youth
outreach programs that include
tutoring for at-risk youths.
Magby suggested her church
could even set up a satellite
facility in District VI to become
eligible for funding.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
told Magby, "The money raised
in the district needs to stay in
the district." But "we can cer-
tainly explore that."

Key West fishing guide and
firefighter Michael Delph was
scheduled to surrender Friday to
begin serving a 10-month federal
sentence for conspiracy to poach
lobster.
At press time, federal officials
could not say whether Delph, 39,
was actually in custody.
Delph was convicted April 1
for his part in harvesting more
than. 1,700 lobster before the


opening of the 2008 regular lob-
ster season.
Five other defendants in the
ring, based on Summerland Key,
entered guilty pleas. One
received probation; the others
haven't yet been sentenced.
U.S. Judge Jose E. Martinez
sentenced Delph to 10 months
imprisonment at a Tuesday hear-
ing, according to the U.S.
Attorney's Office in Miami.
Alleged ringleader David
Dreifort, 41, is scheduled to be


sentenced later this summer.
Delph contested the charges in
a bid to keep his job with the Key
West Fire Department and his
Coast Guard credentials, needed
to work as a charter captain.
According to testimony at
trial, federal marine agents
tracked a boat on July 28, 2008,
owned by Dreifort, as it traveled
Lower Keys waters with the crew
harvesting lobster out of season
from hundreds of illegally placed
habitats they built on the ocean
floor.


No decision on Kolhage's seat


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The date is now firm: Key
West City Commissioner ,Dan
Kolhage is resigning from the
commission effective July 3. But
for now, it's unclear if his seat
will be filled with an appoint-
ment -or remain open until the
October municipal election. `
At Tuesday's City Com-
mission meeting, Kolhage told
city staff and his fellow commis-
sioners that he found a short-
term replacement in District III
resident and former
Commissioner Joe Pais.
Pais, who works with AIDS
Help,. was a city commissioner


from 1995 to 1999.
However, Commissioner
Mark Rossi said there might be-
others who want to .put their
names out there. Concerns also
were raised about the advantage
given to an appointee if he or she
chooses to run for the seat in the
fall.
Kolhage said the seat should
be filled in light of the upcoming
budgeting for the 2009-10 fiscal
year.'
"I don't want to see a three-
three decision, and you are
required by state statute to have
a budget. Not that that would
happen, but it's in the realm of

possibility," he said. "I would
urge you to try to fill the seat."
As far as Pais eventually run-
ning, Kolhage said Pais told him
he wouldn't consider that, and
"his-word is as good as a written
contract to me. I would stake just
about anything on it."
Be that as it may, City
Attorney Shawn Smith noted, "It
just strikes me as fundamentally
improbable that we could have a
binding agreement with some-
one that would take away their
ability to run for office. I'll cer-
.tainly see what we can do to set
some parameters."
Rossi said Pais would be a
fine appointment but there may
be other qualified people who
live in Kolhage's New Town dis-
trict that want a shot at the seat.
He also pointed out that elec-
tion is just a few months away.
"It's less than 110 days until the
election. I say just leave the seat
open."
Rossi himself was appointed
before he was elected.
He was named to fill the
remainder of the term of Merili
McCoy, who died in 2005. Rossi
ran for the seat and beat George
Halloran by 27 votes in a
November runoff.
Kolhage, who was elected in
.2005, initially planned to move
full-time with his family to
Boone, N.C., following the end
of his term. However, he
changed those plans to take
advantage of a business opportu-
nity.
Announced candidates for the
District HI commission seat are
Tom Lavender and Billy
Wardlow; the election is Oct. 6
and qualifying ends at noon on
Aug. 21.

DeQuattro takes the helm


He replaces
Buschman at
Coast Guard
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Capt. Pat DeQuattro took
over command of U.S. Coast
Guard Sector Key West
Thursday night from three-year
commander Capt. .Scott
Buschman.
DeQuattro comes to Key
West from California, where he
was the Coast Guard executive
fellow at the Rand Corp., a
defense think tank; Buschman
moves up to Mianmi, where he
will assume the duty of chief of
staff of Coast Guard District 7,
which includes the Keys.
Hundreds of supportive Keys
residents along with active-duty
Coast Guard members crowded


onto Trumbo Point Thursday to
welcome DeQuattro. Also
attending was Coast Guard Rear
Adm. Steve Branham, com-

mander of District 7.
DeQuattro, who has been
touring facilities and checking
the location operations for the
past week, kept his words short:
"I've been very impressed


over this past week. I look for-
ward to working with each of
you as a team to safely and suc-
cessfully uphold the traditions of
the Coast Guard."
Branham stressed the chal-
lenging aspects of Sector Key
West, which includes an abun-
dance of search-and-rescue mis-
sions, plus dealing with migrant
and drug smuggling. He said
"the drugs that are brought into
our country are a form of terror-
ism."
During the. three years of
Buschmari's tour in Key West,
700 active-duty Coasties, oper-
ating stations in Key West,
Marathon and Islamorada and
equipped with 20 vessels, have
had 2,000 law enforcement cases
and 1,500. search-and-rescuee
cases. They say they've saved
370 lives and interdicted 5,500
illegal migrants, which included
stopping more than 500 go-fast
boats.

Owners of sewer package.
plants in Marathon might rest.
easier after Tuesday, when the
City Council is scheduled to con-
sider a reprieve from meeting
state-mandated advanced waste-
water treatment standards by July
1,2010.
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
has worked with state
Department of Environmental


Protection officials on a deal that
will be presented to the council at
its regular meeting.
"It's just an agreement where
package plant owners sign a con-
sent agreement that they don't
have to upgrade prior to 2010 if
the city doesn't have wastewater
[systems] available to them,"
City Manager Clyde Burnett said.
"They'll just hook up whenever it
is available within 360 days like
anyone else."
Many package plant owners
are concerned about having to
upgrade their existing plants at
substantial cost .- and then have
to hook up to the sewer system a


short time later. Package plants
are operated by larger restaurants,
hotels, trailer parks and other
housing developments.
The DEP sent 256 letters to
package plant owners throughout
the county last year more than
20 in Marathon telling them
that their plants must meet the
advanced treatment standards by
the 201.0 deadline.
Last year, Vice Mayor Don
Vasil tried to get his fellow coun-
cil members to ask for a deadline
extension but he got no support.
State Rep. Ron Saunders was
against an extension, as well, last
year, saying, "Maybe a year from
now would be a more appropriate
time."


City might take land for sewer


Earthmark can't
convey it due
to lien on site
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A month after reclaiming their
30 affordable-housing building
permit allocations, the Marathon
City Council votes Tuesday
whether to take a piece of proper-
ty from Earthmark Companies by
eminent domain.
A small piece of Earthmark's
Knights Key property is prom-
ised to the city for a sewage treat-
nient plant, part of a citywide
.sewer system. But City Manager
Clyde Burnett said a lien placed


CWHS

Ke WetA1 e


on the property prevents
Earthmark from legally turning
the land over to the city, which is.
holding up plans for the work.
"Right now, they haven't paid
their taxes and they can't transfer
a piece of property," he said. "It's
already engineered and ready to
go and time is ticking."
Earthmark's development
agreement to turn the Knight's
Key RV Campground into the
199-unit luxury resort Maranu
Luxe Bungalow Resort and Spa
is set to expire this week. It was
approved in October 2006 but has
yet to break ground.
Burnett said John Wolfe, the
Marathon-based attorney for
Earthmark, is likely to appear
before the council Tuesday night
to ask for a 30-day extension to
the agreement. Wolfe couldn't be'
reached for comment on Friday
on what he expects to change in
30 days.
If the council denies the exten-_
sion, ABumett said the develop-


ment agreement would be void
and Earthmark would have to go
before the council with a new
proposal.
I The agreement allows
Earthmark to. redevelop the 199
current RV spaces into one-, two-
and three-bedroom luxury condo-
hotel units, along with workforce
housing units for resort employ-
ees.
The plan' also includes a spa,
restaurant, marina with charter
boat slips, three pools, a welcome
and conference center and a
sewage treatment plant to accom-
modate all of Knight's Key.
On May 12, the City Council
gave Planning Director George
Garrett the go-ahead to take back
the 30 affordable permit alloca-
tions from Earthmark. The coun-
cil previously discussed the idea,
aimed at spurring new construc-
tion in a down economy, at an
April 21 meeting.
Earthmark would be on the
hook.for the 30 affordable units if
it ever moves forward with con-
struction.

Lobby deal


coming apart


GROSSMAN ROTH, PA.
TRIAL LAWYERS


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.comr


Monroe County Administrator
Roman Gastesi's proposed dream
team of state and federal lobby-
ists never got off the ground in
February and it appears one of
the two sewer authorities to buy
in is on the verge of dropping out.
Islamorada Village Manager
Ken Fields recommended to the
Village Council at its May 28
meeting that it end a short-lived
lobbying partnership with the
county and the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority. It's .aimed at
securing federal sewer and
stormwater infrastructure funding.
"We haven't seen any real
results, so we're thinking about
canceling the contract," Fields
told the Keynoter, adding the
council is "fine with it."
Islamorada has invested
$5,000 over two months to pay
for Alberto Cardenas and Colin
Mueller of Tew Cardenas LLP.
The county .and Aqueduct
Authority also pay $2,500 per
month.
Gastesi used to work for Tew
Cardenas as a lobbyist.
"Tew Cardenas was new to
the area and this was :something
new for them," Fields said,
adding .the village may pursue a
lobbying 'partnership with either
Marathon or the Key Largo


Wastewater Treatment District.
- Those two were among four
Keys sewer authorities awarded a
combined $25.41 million in fed-
eral funding in April through the
U.S. Army Corps .of Engineers.
Marathon, Islamorada, Key
West and Key Largo are each
slated to receive a quarter of the
federal stimulus package money
- roughly $6.25 million each -;
through the Florida Keys Water
Quality Improvement, Program.
Gastesi said once that money
was awarded, it no longer made
sense to partner with Islamorada.
"We're still in partnership
with the Aqueduct Authority and
trying to get some money for
wastewater up in Washington,
[D.C.] We're still going to do that
and it doesn't make sense to be.
partners with the FKWIP folks
because they're getting money
through that program," he said.
Gastesi said the county would
target direct appropriations from
Congress since "stimulus money
doesn't look like it will be com-
ing anytime soon and if it does, it
will be in small increments."
But Gastesi didn't rule out a
future partnership between sewer
entities, in particular supporting a
1-penny sales, tax floated by
county Mayor George Neugent
as a way to raise sewer funding.

Comedienne joins Smith at the Pier House


L'Attitudes Staff

One of the nicest things to
do in Key West on a Sunday
evening is visit The Wine
Galley at the Pier House
Resort to listen to Larry
Smith on the piano, as he's
joined by a guest, usually a
musical guest, for his Sunday
Showcase.
On Sunday, June 7 at 9
p.m., Smith will be joined by
a local singer and comedian
named Cathy Sembert, who
will mix comedy in with the
music. It should be interest-
ing.


Sembert, a native of
Niagara Falls and a self-
described wacky menopausal
comedy artist, has been a res-
ident of the Keys for. more
than 20 years. Known mostly
as a serious singer (she has
performed in the Keys
Chorale, Island Opera
Theater, and the Unity of the
Keys Choir), Cathy has been
making a name for herself as
a comic. She performed her
off-the-wall original stand-up
comedy routine recently in
"Laughing Matters" at the
Red Barn Theater and The
Woman's Hope Concert at the

City works to bring


U.S. Customs to Marathon


By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Dick Ramsay has been flying
in and out of the Marathon airport
for more than 30 years. But when
he flies back from the Bahamas,
he has to make a landing first at
little Kendall-Tamiami Executive
Airport in Miami. Only then,
after clearing customs, can he
continue to Marathon.
The Marathon airport has a
long runway (longer than Key
West International's) and a new
terminal. But it has no U.S.
Customs and Border Protection
facility. Ramsay, a member of
Marathon's City Council, wants
to change that.
For more than two years,
Ramsay's been working toward
getting a Customs and Border
Protection facility at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport to clear
planes, and also boats coming
into Boot Key Harbor.
"I'm on top of this like jelly on
bread," he told the Keynoter.
The Marathon City Council
agreed last week to send a letter
to U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,
asking for her help in working
through the Department of
Homeland Security to bring cus-
toms to Marathon. The letter,
which is signed by Mayor, Mike-
Cinque, begins:, "As .situations
I 1 6 1, f 4 I 1 i l , ). -i


change in our
ever changing
world, there
S, are often
opportunities
which arise
j that must be
addressed and
taken advan-
RAMSAY tage of for the
best interest of
'all U.S. citizens."
It seems to allude to, without
mentioning directly, one of the
biggest reasons for wanting cus-
toms in Marathon: the expecta-
tion. that Cuba will open to
American tourists within the next
year or two.
"If we're not poised and ready,
we're going to get left behind,"
says Daniel Samess, -executive
director of the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce, on posi-
tioning Marathon for that eventu-
ality.
Ramsay, who's kept his plane
at the Marathon airport for 30
years, says the airport is well sit-
uated to handle planes flying in
and out of Cuba, and also to store
. goods to be transported to Cuba -
humanitarian supplies, building
materials; etc.
Key West International
, Airport, he says,. is "almost.


maxed out."
"Marathon, on the other hand,
has tons of parking, tons of
capacity..Jt's an ideal situation."
But there may be some chal-
lenges in getting customs set up
in Marathon. Peter Horton, the
director of airports for Monroe
County, says Customs and
Border Protection usually
requires 5,000 square feet of
space, and airports can't charge
them rent for it,
Ramsay says he thinks there
might be some flexibility on that,
and 'that there's a possibility of
customs sharing space in the
hangar at the airport that's now
used by the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office for its helicopter.
It may soon be clear just what
the federal agency requires, and
how flexible they're going to be.
Phillippe Demonch, the head of
customs in Key West, is heading
to Marathon in the coming days
to take a look at the terminal and
the space available.
"What we were told is that a
very strong case would have to be
made...to put manpower up
there," says Horton.
Samess and Britt Myers, pres-
ident of the Marathon chamber.
say getting customs in Marathon
isn't just about Cuba, but about
the economic future of the
Middle Keys and whole.county.

O'Famil- the new Wyland?

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Word spreads fast when
Marathon native and renowned
marine artist Yoslan O'Farrill
comes to the Keys.
SThe 2002 Marathon High
School graduate came to the
Keys in April to open the World
Art Gallery on Duval Street in
Key West and since then has
been commissioned to do a series
of his signature murals 'through-
out the Keys.
The most visible is a massive
piece he did on a roughly 75-foot-
tall wall at Marathon High, the
class of 2009 senior gift to the
school. He completed the mural,
which was dedicated last week, in
just seven nights, working from 5
to 8 p.m. on a boom crane provid-
ed by Marathon Electric Sign &
Light.
"That's one thing about me. I
can paint fast," O'Farrill said,
laughing. "I start with the back-
ground. Whatever looks good,
that's what I do. I don't sketch it

His other alma mater, Stanley
Switlik Elementary School, also
sports an O'Farrill mural. He
donated it in 2007.-
He's also done a mural in an
Islamorada home and on
Thursday began work on a car-
toon-themed mural at the recent-
ly opened Daffy Doug's Dollar
Store in Marathon.
O'Farrill says he's thrilled to
see his artwork so well received
in the Keys. It's not a surprise
because it's so eye-catching -
the detailed reef fish in bright,
tropical hues, with grand, color-
ful backgrounds.
He says the inspiration for his
marine-life artwork comes from
growing.up in "paradise" around
artists like Wyland and Guy
Harvey.
He recalls showing Wyland one
of his paintings as a senior at
Marathon High, when Wyland was

Have a bare wall? Give a call to O'Farrill


MURALIST / From 27

repainting his Whaling Wall on the
side of Kmart. Harvey added the
small reef fish tothe mural.
Wyland "looked at me and
said, 'I know who's taking over
my job when I retire,' and that
felt, great. I'll never forget
that," O'Farrill said. "It gives
me goose bumps." :
His most visible, work in the
Middle Keys adorns the sides of
Fairway Market at U.S. 1 and
39th Street, which was painted
in 2008,and Boater's World,
next to the Marathon
Community Theatre, which he


completed in 2007.
"If anyone has a wall, they
can call me. Here in Marathon,
I have a lot of murals, but I
want more up and down the
Keys," he said.
But his work isn't confined
to the Keys. He's created
murals iff Chicago, New York,
California, Arizona even
Vancouver, British Columbia.
O'Farrill came to Marathon
from Cuba in sixth grade -
and says he has no idea why
he has an Irish last name when
both his parents are Cuban.
After graduating from the
local schools, he completed
his art education at the Fort

opened with David Rodriguez in Key West. It's at 821 Duval St.


Lauderdale Art Institute. He
lives in Daytona Beach now
but-plans to move back to the
Keys full-time some day.
O'Farrill says around half
the pieces at the World Art
Gallery will be his work. He
co-owns the gallery, at 821
Duval St., with David
Rodriguez. He says he's also
opened a gallery on the strip in
Las Vegas.
To inspire young artists to
pursue their dream, O'Farrill
said space has been set aside
in the Key West gallery for


high school students to show
their work.
"When I was in high
school, it was really difficult-
for me to get my work out.
You always hear you're too
young; it doesn't matter how
good you are. There are many
talented kids in high school
that don't get the opportunity.
We want to start a program;
any kid in high school with
talent and serious about pursu-
ing a career in art, we'll have a
section in the -gallery for
them," he-said.


O'Farrill says he also wants
to start a scholarshipfounda-
tion in his name at all three
Keys high schools, to "put as
many kids as possible in
school." He said careers in the
arts are extremely important
and fulfilling.
"Architects and designers
come from that. That's who
makes Web pages. We need to
focus on the arts; it's really a
beautiful, career," he said.

Belen, Henriquez a good match


KEY WEST / From 31

When he learned that Belen
coach Tony Meilan was not being
retained, Henriquez contacted the
school.
"I had no plans to get back
into high school baseball unless it
was the right situation," he said.
The way things were going,
he realized he wouldn't be able to
continue to pay for the education
of his daughter Ashley, who will
be a junior at Florida State
University. "I didn't want to have
to tell her she would have to
come home," he said.
He said he will also teach


physical education classes at
Belen, a Catholic all-boys school
that has consistently defeated
Key West in baseball in recent
seasons.
Married to Dee Dee
Henriquez, the county tax collec-
tor, and father of Ralphie
Henriquez, who, is playing
minor-league baseball in
Savannah, Ga., Henriquez said
he will get an apartment in the
Miami area and visit Key West
on weekends.
A devout Catholic who was a
strict disciplinarian as Key
West's coach, Henriquez said he
was impressed with Belen.
"I like the atmosphere when I


walk through the door," he said.
"You see kids with shirts and ties,
and with their shirts tucked in.
You don't hear foul. language. It's
a whole different world."
At Key West, Henriquez was
often criticized despite 'his
record.
"You learn that the more suc-
cess you have, the more jealousy
you create," he said. "What we
did here was pretty remarkable.
We were the No. .1 program in the
nation in 1996."
He said he's spending his
remaining time in Key West
doing what he's always done -
teaching kids 'how to play base-
ball.

remembered for his kindness
on the tennis courts."
Frank had undergone a
stomach operation a year ago
and was slow in recovering.
"As this season went on, he lost
his appetite and he got progres-
sively worse," Findlay said.
"But he showed up every day."
A 1966 graduate of


Davidson, where he played ten-
nis, Frank coached the Wildcats
for 33 seasons, ending with a
541-319-1 record. In 1996, he
was inducted into the North
Carolina Tennis HaH of Fame.
Findlay said a memorial
fund has been set up to assist
the Key West tennis program
and to provide scholarships.

Regulations was a miserable failure contracts. Why would

Slikethe other 23,000 FEMA regulations to be passed again?
-flood insurance
\ j/ communities again!!" ,


Monroe County is the ONLY ONE out of the 23,000 FEMA flood insured communities with mandatory downstairs enclosure inspections because our 2002
commissioners ASKED FEMA to approve these onerous regualtions. FEMA recognized these regulations could have major negative effects on full and part time
homeowners which is the reason why these horrendous regulations were classified as a pilot program. Our commissioners should ensure that the results of the
pilot program are examined and evaulated before our commissioners make these unique rules permanent. Unfortunately Mayor Neugent, Commissioner Di -
Gennaro, County Administrator Gastesi and Growth Management Director Trivette are planning to once again ASK FEMA to make these regulations permanent as a
Quid Pro Quo for a sham amnesty program at a June 10th meeting. Before these regulations become permanent, we call for our commissioners to conduct public
hearings and an official study of the downstairs enclosure pilot program before our officials proceed with this meeting. We believe such results will prove these
S. regulations were anti-family, anti-business, and un-American.
Pilot result studies and logical reasons why our downstairs enclosures should be exempt from FEMA regulations along with standard emails and letters which can
be easily sent to our commissioners are available at www.CitizensNotSerfs.com.
Let's stop this anti-family, anti-business madness.
Join the fight. It's absolutely free.Together we can save the Keys.
