Vanden Brook
hints she won't
challenge loss
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Now that Tegan Slaton has
been declared the winner yet
again, the Monroe County
Circuit Court judge says calm-
,ness has set in.
"Now we can sleep," Slaton
said. "When I walk my dog,
that's all I think about now -
walking my puppy."
Wednesday, Leon County
Circuit Court Judge Kevin
Davey reaffirmed Slaton's
'November election to the bench
over Mary Vanden Brook.
While Slaton said the trial
process showed elections offi-
cials did a good a job, he also
said, "I think it was an unneces-
sary ordeal."
As for Vanden Brook, she
hasn't ruled out a further appeal,
although she hinted she's pur-
sued the case long enough.
"I'm proud of the way I ran
the race. I'm really proud of the
legal effort, as well. I'm feeling
good about it overall," she said.
"I wish it would have worked
out another way, but sometimes


you have to
stand up for
something
Syou believe
Sin."
Any appeal

the First
District Court
of Appeal that
SLATON covers the
Tallahassee area.
"I haven't really made -the
decision about that," the former
court administrator said. "I kind
of need to look at my life."
"It would be very difficult to
overturn this., decision on
appeal," Slaton said. "I think the
Legislature will address this and
no one else will have through
this."
Vanden-Brook sued Slaton,
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer, the county Elections
Canvassing Board and the state
Elections. Canvassing
Commission after she lost in the
fall. The four-vote difference
separating Slaton from her came
following, a manual recount, a
machine recount and a manual
ballot review.
/ In the end, 69 ballots were
rejected by the Monroe County
Elections Canvassing Board


because the voter signatures on
them didn't match signatures
kept on file by the Supervisor of
Elections Office.
Wednesday, Davey had them
before him to open. He. tossed
out 26 immediately, saying they
were not problematic, leaving 43
to count.
"Of those 43, 20 were for
Tegan, 10 for Mary and the other
13 were 'no' votes," said Bob
Shillinger, chief assistant
Monroe County attorney. "Tegan
picked up a net 10 [votes]."
So Slaton's vote lead
increased from four to 14.
Here's how Shillinger, who
was representing Sawyer and the
county elections board,
described the process: .
Staff from Sawyer's office
handed Davey the, ballots in
question one by one in sealed
envelopes. Davey cut them open
and checked the vote while
maintaining voter secrecy.
"He would announce who the
ballot was for and we were all
taking notes," Shillinger said.
"It was close." Then "he ran
off a bunch in a row that were
Tegan's," Shillinger said.
Slaton has been serving in the
family and probate divisions of
Circuit Court since his investi-
ture in January. "I love the job,"
he said.


One-day limits didn't last long


WATER / From I

Those levels were found at
monitoring stations close to the
Florida City wellfield that sup-
plies most of the water coming
down the FKAA pipeline to the
Keys.
Before May, South Florida
had received just 4.47 inches of
rain over six months, creating the
worst drought on record.
The above-normal May rains
that fell on the Keys were just
short of a record for the month,
notes a report assembled by staff
at the Key West office of the
National Weather Service.
However, May's rainfall totals
in Monroe County were stagger-
ingly higher than recorded in
2008's dry May.
Islamorada went from having
no measurable rainfall in May
2008 to 6.79 inches in May 2009,
says the report prepared by mete-


orologists David Ross, Matt
Parke and Mike Rapsik.
Cudjoe Key had a 7.2-inch
increase in May rainfall, from
1.59 inches in 2008 to a soggy
8.79 inches this year.
A reporting station at John.
Pennekamp Coral Reef State.
Park in Key Largo reported 5.55
inches last month, compared with
trace amounts in May 2008. ,
The comparison "shows not
only the variability from year to
year at any given location, but
also shows the extent of the vari-
ability from island to island."
Ten days into June, the weath-
er staff pointed out that the
month also could go into the
record books for rainfall in the
Keys.
"Only time will tell if June
follows suit and provides an
abundance of rainfall but most
locations are on their way to such
a result," the NWS report says..
The Sugarloaf Key area has


seen around 5 inches of June rain,
while more than 3 inches have
been record in Key Largo, Big
Pine Key and the Dry Tortugas.
"Wise water use and conser-
vation remain critical given
Florida's weather extremes,"
Water Management District
Executive Director Carol Ann
Wehle cautioned Friday while
announcing the loosening of in
Keys restrictions.
Residents and businesses with
an odd-number street address
(ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) will be
able to water on Wednesdays and
Saturday.
Residents and businesses with
an even-number address may
water Thursdays and Sundays.
Multi-family buildings should
use this schedule.
No watering will be allowed
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at
any time.
The rules do not affect car
washing or boat washing.

who expects to have at least indi-
rect input into the governor's
selection, said Axford had
expressed interest to him.
"We do have some very quali-
fied people in the system, but it's
still an ongoing investigation,"
Saunders said. "You don't know
who may or may not still be
called as a potential witness."
School Board members Steve
Pribramsky and John Dick said
Axford would put an educator in
the superintendent's seat, some-
thing they've advocated for. But
they added Axford might not be
far enough removed from the
current district administration.
"I would hope the governor
would appoint from completely
outside this district," Dick said.
"I want somebody with an educa-
tional background to come into a
situation like this and clean this
up no ties to, anybody, no alle-

The other three potential can-
didates, like the governor, are all
prominent -Republicans.
Sorensen, a former Monroe
County mayor who recently
retired as a special liaison posi-
tion. with the speaker of the
Florida House, said he is interest-
ed in the appointment.
"I think me being a former
faculty member at Florida State
University, my doctorate and my
knowledge of educational system
as a result of eight years in the
Legislature, and my business
background, seemed to appeal to

Turtle's release airs
live on Fox on Sunday

Kincaid, a .sick loggerhead
turtle that swam up to the Turtle
Hospital in Marathon on March
29, is being released Sunday
morning on national televi-
sion.
A crew from "Fox and
Friends," which airs on the Fox
channel, is coming down for the
9:20 a.m. release at Veteran's
Park on Little Duck Key, on the
south end of the Seven Mile
Bridge oceanside.


When he swam up to the
Turtle Hospital, the 100-pound
Kincaid had a severe body cavity
-infection and had lost a substan-
tial amount of weight. He was
thin, weak and covered in barna-
cles, all indications that he was
not healthy.
He's been at the Turtle
Hospital ever since getting
healthy meals of squid and
shrimp, along with antibiotics
and vitamin injections. He's now
back to full health and ready to
return to the wild.
The public's invited'to help

DeFoor served as Everglades
czar under then-Gov. Jeb Bush,
and is a former Keys judge in
addition to having served as sher-
iff. He also has an educational
background, with teaching stints
at 10 colleges and universities, but
said he has no interest at this point.
"However, I would consider
anything the governor of Florida
asked me," DeFoor said.
Davis, currently training law
enforcement officers in Iraq, did
not respond by press time Friday.


The other
three
potential
candidates,
like the
governor, are
all prominent ,
Republicans.

Who Crist appoints would
lead the district up until Acevedo
is cleared if he's cleared of
charges or until the next general
election in fall 2010.
However, some board mem-
bers said they expect a referen-
dum could be placed on a special
election ballot this year to make
the superintendent position
appointed by the School Board
instead of elected by voters. If it
passed, the board could appoint a
new permanent superintendent in
early 2010.

Keys trials unlikely


Attorney says
impartial juries
can't be seated
in Acevedo cases
By DAVID GOODHUE
and DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

With both Randy and
Monique Acevedo now crimi-
nally charged in the Monroe
County School District finance
scandal, the next step is the pros-
ecution.
But don't expect any trial -
if indeed trials take place to
occur in Monroe County, a
prominent and veteran
Marathon-based defense attor-
ney says.
"I can say that-without any
reservation, there won't be a trial
here," attorney Hal
Schuhmacher said. "I would be
stunned if the case were to be
held in this venue. There has
been so much in the newspapers
about this. I can't recall anything
.that has generated this much
publicity."
He said it would be impossi-
ble to seat an impartial jury.
Randy Acevedo, the schools
superintendent, was arrested
Thursday morning on a charge
of official misconduct and sus-
pended indefinitely without pay
by Gov. Charlie Crist later in the
day. He could serve five years in
prison if convicted.
State Attorney Dennis Ward
said the decision to arrest
Acevedo was based on testimo-
ny given to a grand jury, which
indicted Acevedo Wednesday
night. The charge is officially
listed as obstruction of justice in
Acevedo's booking information
on the Sheriff's Office Web site.
Acevedo, 42, was released on
his own recognizance.
The charge against Acevedo
is connected to the alleged theft
by his 41-year-old wife,
Monique, of hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in School
District money. She worked in
the district's Adult Education
Department, the last two years as
department head, when the
alleged theft took place.
She resigned March 3 and
was arrested April 30 on charges
of theft and fraud. She faces up
to 60 years in prison if convict-
ed.


Prosecutors say she stole
more than $180,000'from tuition
and other accounts for adult edu-
cation programs she oversaw
since 2005. Charges are also
likely coming in connection with
around $118,000 more in
allegedly fraudulent purchases
she made with her School
District credit card and through
store purchase orders.
Randy Acevedo has main-
tained he had no knowledge of
his wife's alleged theft. I
The scandal broke when
Finance Director Kathy Reitzel
informed state auditors and
School Board members about
the possible theft, after she
wouldn't sign a state auditing
document attesting that the dis-
trict's financial records con-
tained no evidence of fraud.
However, recorded inter-
views with Reitzel and other
officials released by prosecutors
last week suggest the superin-
tendent knew about fraudulent
spending by his wife.
Randy Acevedo's indictment
lists the alleged incident of offi-
cial misconduct occurring on or
about Feb. 11,2009.
According to investigators,
Reitzel met with Acevedo on
Feb. 12 to discuss questionable
purchases on his wife's district
credit card including airline
tickets in her parents' names, an
XM satellite radio subscription,
Oakley sunglasses, men's shoes
and purchases at grocery stores
during the Christmas holidays.
Purchase orders reviewed by
Reitzel also showed reimburse-
ments for a $1,699 bed delivered
to the Acevedos' Key West
home, among-other questionable
purchases.
Investigators said Reitzel
gave documentation of the pur-
chases to Randy Acevedo. On
Feb. 17, Monique gave a written
response to the issues raised by
Reitzel and handed over three
checks to reimburse the district
for five airline tickets.
A report released Tuesday by
a forensic investigator hired by
the School Board says Randy
Acevedo and other administra-
tors ignored oversight policies
and created a "permissive cul-
ture" that allowed the theft to
occur.
The report states that Randy
Acevedo's discovery of his
wife's purchases and his sub-


sequent inaction dissuaded
other employees from following
policies themselves.
The State Attorney's Office's
lead investigator on the case,
Mark Wilson, said other arrests
could follow, but his office is not
at that point in the investigation
yet.
"We're still looking into alle-
gations against the superinten-
dent's wife, but who knows what
we'll find as we move forward,"
Wilson said.
Randy Acevedo handed out
the diplomas at Coral Shores
High School's graduation Wed-
nesday night just hours after
he was indicted. Deputy Super-
intendent Mike Henriquez took
Acevedo's place at Thursday's
Marathon High commencement
and at Friday's Key West High
graduation.
Randy Acevedo's arraign-
ment is set for 8:45 a.m. June 16.
before Circuit .Court Judge
David Audlin.
Monique Acevedo has

Keys Opinion


Keys need outside

interim schools chief
Swift action by Gov. Charlie Crist in suspending schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo without pay on Thursday
caught some School District officials by surprise.
But most of those were supporters of the superintendent who
kept wishing he could ride out the firestorm of investigations
embroiling the school system since March.
Many in that same group hope the governor appoints Deputy
Superintendent Mike Henriquez-as the interim superintendent
while Acevedo awaits the outcome of his indictment on an offi-
cial misconduct obstructing justice charge.
The grand jury's language in the indictment, handed up
Wednesday night, is vague, perhaps on purpose, with further
charges coming. But virtually everyone watching this sad
scene play out realizes there are many wrongs tobe righted -
and lots of people who knew and said nothing.
In case you just popped into town. Acevedo was indicted in con-
nection with the case against his wife Monique, who faces theft
and fraud charges herself for allegedly stealing $180,000 -
maybe even more from the district before she quit on March 3.
Forensic investigator Richard Fechter didn't mince words this
week when he told the School Board of the district's "permis-
sive culture of repeated violations of policies and procedures."
Anyone who takes the time to read his draft report (it's post-
ed on www.Keysnet.com), will be stunned at the number and
positions of district administrators and staff who apparently
turned a blind eye for too long.
On Page 11 of Fechter's 32-page report is a prime example
involving a $777-97 purchase from a Key West lumberyard on
Jan. 9 of this year.
Fechter's investigation discovered Monique Acevedo, using the
district Construction Department's standing purchase order,
bought lumber. Subsequent attempts to reconcile the unauthorized
purchase involved the heads of transportation, maintenance and
custodial services, the director of facilities and construction, the
finance director and a former assistant superintendent.
Not one blew the whistle.
The forensic auditor tracked missing tuition paid in cash by
cosmetology students a program supervised by the superin-
tendent's wife before she resigned. She was arrested on April 30.
In 2000, cosmetology fees deposited into district accounts
totaled $33,899. Last year, only $5,760 in cash was deposited.
Fechter says the money unaccounted for since 2000 totals
$297,571. And no one noticed?
Given the pervasive pattern of abuse of public money now
emerging from both the criminal investigation and the forensic
audits, Crist needs to bring in a top gun from outside the dis-
trict to take Acevedo's place.
Cleaning up this mess will require a big broom and no lever-
age for backroom deals with those who turned a blind eye to
such large-scale corruption.,

School District's 'toxicity' hurting our students


EDITOR:
The academic achievement of our students
continues to significantly decline in relationship
to their counterparts in the world. Providing them
with the confidently assertive leadership required
to advance their academic standing in the world,
and make up for the ground that they have lost, is
absent.
A scant analysis of existing data continues to
demonstrate that students in the United States,
particularly in Florida, are being so overwhelm-
ingly shortchanged in the classroom that it bor-
ders on abuse and prosecutorial neglect.
Recent evidence appears to be pointing at the
carcinogen malignancies that have taken root and
clustered in the Monroe County School District.
They have introduced a virulent toxicity that has-
further depleted the resources necessary to pro-
duce vibrant and viable students capable of com-
peting in the global market.
This apparent culture of systemic corruption
that is under investigation, accompanied by. the
negligence and dereliction of those entrusted with
supervising the education of our children, has fur-
ther destabilized the academic standing of our
students. This maladjusted and incompetent band
may have demonstrated the unusual capacity to
commit crimes against innocent children.


Clearly, given the chronic inefficiency and
ineffectuality of those in charge, reforming this
toxic system is not an option. Therefore, an inde-
pendent group of enlightened, self-realized and
accomplished individuals has been assembled,
standing at the ready, eagerly awaiting to be -
called upon to provide our children with the very
best education in the world.
This elite group of experts will be directly
answerable to the parents, citizens and taxpayers.
They will be identified as Task Force
Achievement. Their only purpose will be to
ensure that students are academically advancing
themselves toward a superior world ranking in
the field of their choice. The accomplishment of
their mission will be judged by the documented,
verifiable and measurable academic success they
bring into each student's life.
Task Force Achievement will immediately
become a reality the moment that our demands
for its creation are initiated. We no longer can
curse the darkness, yet refuse to turn on the lights.
Continuing to relegate our sons and daughters to a
third-rate existence and a lifetime of subservience
to those students who have been given a world-
class education is a conscienceless crime.

Shed light on the bridge


EDITOR:
I recently had a few too many
calories and decided to take a bike
ride early in the morning. I do appre-
ciate the lighting along Overseas
Highway.
Upon riding north to Coco Plum, I
turned around and thought I might be
able to make it to Pigeon Key. While
on the bridge to Pigeon Key, there were
some mostly happy couples accepting a
bicyclist with his lights on wanting to
get out and get some-exercise.
But the fishermen (I enjoy fishing
myself) who shouldn't be there
because of the no-fishing sign at the
entrance didn't want to see any other


person except other fishermen.
So how does the general public
enjoy the facility with the least
amount of trouble?
There is money available for some
minor improvements like solar-,
wind- or tide-generated electricity to
have lightalong the two-mile stretch
of the old bridge, which would hope-
fully keep most fishermen off the
bridge for fear of being seen by
authorities.
Let's try to enjoy the facilities
everyone owns and not have to call
law enforcement officers.

Foundation spurs more giving


EDITOR:
Heron-Peacock Supported Living,
which provides community residen-
tial mental health programs in the
Keys, would like to thank the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation for its generous support
of our fundraising efforts at the
recent dragon boat races in Marathon.
The foundation pledged $501 to
paddler Danielle Beeler. This support
helped Heron-Peacock achieve great
success at the races and raise more
than $7,000 for our nonprofit agency.
This is not the first time the founda-
tion has helped Heron-Peacock.
Since 2003 the Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Charitable Foundation in
Marathon has assisted Heron-
Peacock Supported Living by donat-
ing funds to support client and pro-
gram needs. Since it started its giving
campaign in April 2002, the founda-
tion has raised more than $500,000
through the generosity and kindness


of the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real
Estate agents, associates, business
partners and affiliates. The funds are
mainly used for helping residents of
the Keys whose critical needs are not
being met through other resources.
Recipients include individuals, fami-
lies and organizations. -
We also wish to-thank the Greater
Marathon Chamber of Commerce
and other corporate and individual
donors who sponsored our dragon
boat crews, and Karen Bowers for
holding the event. We are also grate-
ful to the Hurricane in Marathon for
its help and support and the partici-
pation of its employees in the races.
A special thanks to Mandy Bowers
for organizing the teams. Their assis-
tance will allow Heron-Peacock to
continue to provide housing, help
and hope to men and women with
mental illness.

Saltmarsh mosquitoes like this are the most common type that breed in the
Florida Keys.

Mosquito Control wants to lessen the sting


EDITOR:
When the rains come down, the mosqui-
toes come up.
The recent heavy rains, as we know,
have created a deluge in mosquitoes. The
little pests have been making their presence
known. And the Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District has been geared up for this
both in finances and assets. We have not cut
back in service due to financial constraints.
This I tell you because people have
asked me if we have cut back on service
due.to tight finances. We can't. Any reduc-
tion would bring disaster to our health and
economy. Mosquito Control has been criti-
cized in the past for having too much
reserves for an emergency but, when push
comes to shove, we are able to cover addi-
tional services.
In addition, I would like to say that this


government agency, Mosquito Control,
wants to hear from you. Contrary to popular
belief, we do want to be bothered.
Whenever you have an increase in mosqui-
toes, call 292-7190. In season, there is a
dispatcher on duty from the wee hours until
2 a.m. Your call helps us determine where
the action is..
An added thought to keep in mind for
the future: As we know, storm drains are
being installed throughout the Keys, man-
dated by the crowd in Tallahassee. Our
porous soil will absorb most of the rain, as
it always has. But whatever water does
accumulate in these drains will also breed
mosquitoes. Therefore, we will have future
headaches to contend with.
Dick Rudell, commissioner

Smilin' Jack will be missed


EDITOR:
When I was growing up, "Smiling Jack"
was a comic strip in the newspaper. Jack
Webb was an actor who portrayed Joe.
Friday, a hard-nosed detective who wanted
just the facts on TV's "Dragnet."
When I moved to the Keys 15 years ago,
I made the acquaintance of a real Jack Webb,
also know as Smilin' Jack. He wasn't an
actor. He was the real deal, an honest, gener-
ous and caring soul. He had achieved much
in his all-too-brief life, and many of his
accomplishments were written in his obitu-
ary or mentioned at his memorial service.
One thing that was not mentioned, of
which Jack was proud, was that he was a
licensed captain with a masters rating. He
loved the water, boating and everything
associated with our island life.
When he went to Vegas for a couple of


years, there was a void here in the Keys.
When he returned, things felt normal again.
Jack would help anyone in anyway he
could, no conditions, no complaints. Even
under stress, he could still flash that daz-
;zling smile.
I once asked him how he could still
seem so happy despite the adversity that
frequently beset himn He said, "I've had lots
of therapy." Whatever kept him going, he
was a tireless worker with no quit in him.
He had hundreds of friends, as evidenced
by the turnout to scatter his ashes and the
pre-ceremony at the Pilot House.
I had prepared some remarks but could-
fi't say them. So I write this instead to say
goodbye to Smilin' Jack. Key Largo will
miss him, and so will I.

FWC considers
change to rules
for the species
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Bonefish are just too valuable
to waste, say fishing advocates.
"Bonefish are a resource we
need to protect, and w.e have not
been minding the store," said
Jerry Ault, a University of Miami
expert in fish populations.
Staff biologists with the state
Florida Fish and Wildlife
'Conservation Commission will
make a presentation on bonefish
to the FWC board at its Thursday
-meeting in Crystal River. On the
table: Making it a no-take
species, with possible exceptions.
"We have been asking for the
state to essentially make bonefish
a catch-and-release species," said
Aaron Adams, a researcher and
director of operations for the
Bonefish and Tarpon Trust.
Bonefish are stealthy, fast-
swimming fish that are challeng-


ing to catch.
A study by Ault's UM research
team calculates that a single bone-
fish may generate $3,600 to the
Florida economy in a year from
recreational interests, and up to
$75,000 over the fish's natural
lifespan of 20 or more years.
Florida has an estimated bone-
fish population of 300,000 to
321,000, mostly limited to the
Florida Keys and Biscayne Bay
shallows, according to reports.
While an annual census taken
by the Trust indicates the bone-
fish population has not signifi-
cantly changed in recent years,
Ault and Adams said that may be
misleading.
"The old-timers say [the bone-
fish population] is nothing like it
used to be," Ault said. "It may
only be 5 percent of what it was."
Declines in habitat and prey
species are significant concerns,
along with accidental or intention-
al harvest of bonefish, Ault said.
"There's a pervasive attitude
that everything is OK because
most bonefish are released," he
said. "That's kind of a false belief."
Florida law now prohibits
commercial sale of bonefish, and
limits anglers to keeping one fish
over 18 inches long per day.
The Bonefish and Tarpon
Trust members include many
flats-fishing legends, along with
noted Keys anglers and guides -
will ask for the daily limit of one
fish to be stricken.
In coming months, if the FWC
approves, a series of statewide
workshops would be held to con-
sider revising the rules.
Possible variations might

allow a bonefish to be kept for
record consideration, or requiring
a bonefish tag similar to the $50
per-fish tag now required for har-
vesting a tarpon, Adams said.
"About 70 percent of the
world records on bonefish were
made in the Florida Keys," Ault
said. "People come from all over
to world to go bonefishing in
South Florida. This is a heritage
,that needs to be preserved."
Since there are no federal reg-
ulations on. bonefish, the FWC
also may consider extending state
law into adjacent federal waters
(allowable under the Magnuson-
Stevens Act).
In other items of Keys interest
at the FWC's Crystal River
meeting:
Rules on snook may be
clarified to tighten regulations on
out-of-season possession of
snook. No changes on bag or size
limits are on the table.
FWC board members will
consider lowering the daily bag
limit for shallow-water grouper
in the Gulf of Mexico to four fish
to conform to federal regulations.
S-An emergency closure of
red snapper, tracking a federal
rule, will be considered.

the noise issue is an issue in Key
West, and it will never be any dif-
ferent," he told the Keynoter.
"The biggest concern I have is
negative impact on the communi-
ty, and that's potentially noise..
We get complaints from neigh-
bors often as it stands."
At its April meeting, the
County, Commission rejected a
request by the Marathon City
Council to assume jurisdiction
over planning and permitting at
the Middle Keys airport, but did
allow the city input on decisions.
Ramsay, an avid pilot and the
city's liaison on airport issues,
said he felt slighted.
Airport Manager Reggie
Paros said a master plan complet-
ed around 2002 and conveyed to
the FAA addresses the possible
changes Ramsay's concerned
about.
That includes possibly extend-
ing the 5,000-foot runway by up
to 700 feet and moving it 40 feet
to the north..
The runway in Marathon has
800 total feet of "runway protec-
tion zone," 400 feet on each end.
Moving the runway north could


mean eliminating the tree line
separating Aviation Boulevard -
a big residential area from the
airport.
"Frankly, as far as I'm con-
cerned, the runway is sufficiently
long. This thing started with the
premise that we needed it longer
for an airline. I think it appears
within the foreseeable future
we've given up on any large
commuter service," Ramsay said.
Delta Airlines suspended
Freedom Airlines flights to
Atlanta in September 2007 after
just five months, citing issues
with runway length. Many ques-
tioned that reasoning because
Key West International has a
shorter runway than Marathon.
"My understanding was their
newer-generation 70-passenger
aircraft takes less runway then
what they were flying here,
which was a 40- or 50-passenger
plane," Paros said.
"That excuse is gone away,"
Ramsay said of a large commer-
cial carrier. "Now you have to ask,
who wants a longer runway?"
Some say Marathon Jet Center
owner Bill Ehrhom, who is also
the general manager at Marathon
General Aviation, stands to bene-
fit most because his company at
the airport caters to larger planes
and profits from selling fuel.
"We would be a beneficiary,
but not necessarily the primary.
The [fixed-base operators] at
both ends, what they do for a liv-
ing is pump gas, but they do a lot
of services that bring in busi-
ness," Ehrhorn said, meaning
passengers in those planes spend
money in Marathon.
And Ehrhom disagreed that
lengthening the runway will
increase noise.
"Dick is certainly knowledge-
able about aviation, [but] he's not
here every day like I am. The
reality is the noisiest is the small-
est aircraft and the quietest is the
largest jet," he said, referring to
the Lear 24 and Global Express
airplanes.
Paros is scheduled to appear
before the County Commission at
its Wednesday meeting in
Marathon and said he'll ask
whether to continue pursuing
runway issues with the FAA.
"If this does occur, there are
parts of that that will require pub-
lic hearings where the public will
... be given an opportunity to not
only be informed about what's
being proposed, but also to solic-
it their input," Paros said.

City starts


budget process


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Summer means one thing for
municipalities Keyswide -
budget time.
Key West city officials plan to
wrap up a week of budget review
meetings on Monday at Old City
Hall on Greene Street. That meet-
ing will deal with the Trans-
portation Department's yearly
budget and starts in the upstairs
conference room at 1 p.m.
If need be, time is set aside
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
for further budget sessions, but
Assistant City Manager Mark
Finigan said those will probably
not be necessary.
"The departments are where I
expected them to be; they're pret-
ty lean," Finigan said..
The. current city budget is
nearly .$38 million; more than
$27 million of that goes to
salaries, wages and benefits.
As city staff has continually
reported since the current fiscal
year started on Oct. 1, the outlook
for 2009-10 is grim as revenues


are falling.
At the end of the second fiscal
quarter in May,. revenue from
building permits and sales taxes
were off estimated budget num-
bers by $1.8 million. Property
taxes also are expected to take a
hit due to declining home values.
However, cruise-ship revenue
was boosted when cruise lines
stopped going to Mexico because
of swine-flu concerns and redi-
rected their ships to Key West.
Disembarkation fees for the cur-
rent budget year are expected to
be $400,000 over the budgeted
$3.9 million.
To deal with the revenue
shortfalls in the short term, city
staff has recommended eliminat-
ing four positions a plumbing
inspector, code compliance offi-
cer, park ranger and project con-
struction coordinator. ,
Although the budget meetings
scheduled this week are open to
the public, there is no time allot-
ted for public comment or input.

Expectations Exceeded:

I want to thank everyone who expressed their appreciation and excitement of how
the 33rd Street Park and Boat Ramp and dock at the Quay exceeded their
expectations as to quality and appearance.

Additionally, I want to make sure that the others involved in this project are afforded
the-recognition they deserve not only our company and the City of Marathon staff.

- Thank you to Sean Kerwin at Glenn Boe & Associates, and of course Kathy, Frank
Topppino of Toppino & Sons, Steve Brady of Steve's Plumbing and Mike Puto, all of
whom were instrumental in helping complete this project.

We are very proud of the work everyone did.As a child I remember fireworks, raft
races and picking up "stuff" on the beach when I was out of school at Sue M. Moore. I
am honored to say that everyone I just mentioned has a long history here in the Keys
and it was important to all of them that their pride in our community was reflected
in this project.

Kolhage seat back in the fore


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday will try
to establish a process to possibly
choose a replacement for
Commissioner Dan Kolhage,
who plans to resign July 3.
Kolhage, who was elected to
represent New Town District HII
in 2005; plans to move to Boone,
N.C., with his family to take
advantage of a business opportu-
nity. That means he can't finish
out his four-year term.
His Key West home is in fore-
closure and his business,
Kolhage Appliance and
Electronics, went out of business
last year.

Fausto's sells lottery
ticket worth $116,000

A Fantasy 5 lottery ticket
bought at Fausto's Food Palace
at 1105 White St., Key West,
was one of two statewide win-
ners Wednesday night.
Whoever holds the winning


scheduled to lead the discussion
about how to go about appoint-
ing an interim commissioner -
if the commissioners decide
that's what they want to do.
This much is known: They
have 15 days after Kolhage's res-
ignation to select and appoint a
replacement. But the same rule
that governs that allows for no
replacement to be made if it's
fewer than 180 days until the
next election, which also applies.
Kolhage has said that AIDS.
Help employee and ^former
Commissioner Joe Pais is willing
to take the seat and wouldn't run
in'October. But other commis-
sioners expressed concern that an
appointed interim commissioner


ticket will get half of the
$231,886.82 top prize, or
$115,943.41.
The winning numbers were
2-10-34-35-36.
The other winning ticket was
bought at a Publix in Coral
Springs in Broward County.
The retailers who sold the win-
ning tickets each get $500.


would have a clear-cut incum-
bency advantage when the elec-
tion rolls around.
In 2005, current Com-
missioner Mark Rossi was
appointed to fill the seat of Merili
McCoy after she died. Rossi
went on to beat McCoy's daugh-
ter, Mimi McCoy Grantham, in
the subsequent election.
This year, the.city election is
on Oct. 6 and candidate qualify-
ing begins Aug. 17 at noon and
ends Aug. 21 at noon. So far,
retired First State Bank employ-
ee Tom Lavender and former
Key West Fire Chief Billy
Wardlow have announced
they're running.

Menendez bandstand
Also Tuesday, Kolhage is
sponsoring a resolution to name
the Bayview Park bandstand
after former District V
Commissioner Jose Menendez,
who served from 1969 to 1971
and again from 2003 to 2007;
Menendez championed having
the bandstand refurbished during
his second term.
And Commissioner Teri

on the city recycling initiative.

Hotel deal back on table


Commissioners
say developers
got it on agenda
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Questions surrounding a state
Department of Community Affairs
memo have led Monroe County
Commissioner Heather Carruthers
to request a second look at plans
for a controversial 300-plus-room
hotel on Stock Island.
Carruthers says she plans to
ask for reconsideration of the
matter, which involves a pro-
posed amendment to the county
land-use plan that commissioners
rejected June 2 on a 3-2 vote.'.
Mayor George Neugent said
the matter's back before the com-
mission, which meets at the
Marathon Government Center on
Wednesday, due to heavy lobby-
ing by developers.
Carruthers said her concerns
are prompted by the memo, sup-
posedly prepared by DCA Keys'
representative Rebecca Jetton. It
was handed out during the critical
June 2 meeting dealing with New
Stock Island Properties' 54-acre
Safe Harbour property.
Part of the memo discusses the
proposed amendment not
addressing the U.S. Navy's oppo-
sition to the hotel plan. The
Navy's concerned the develop-
ment would be impacted by jet
noise created by training flights.
"I felt like some us were,


blindsided with a document that
was supposed to be DCA's posi-
tion," Carruthers said. "I don't
think the public or the commis-
sioners had a clear vetting of it
when we made our decision. It's
not on letterhead and not signed.
There's some discussion whether
it even-is DCA's position."
DCA spokesman James Miller
told the Keynoter the agency
wrote the document in 2009 and
originally sent it to county
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette. Another copy was
later sent to Commissioner Kim
Wigington after a separate phone
conversation.
"She should have sent it to all
the commissioners; it was just a
simple mistake on her part,"
Miller said.
The proposed amendment to
the land-use plan, needed to make
the hotel a reality, has undergone
several revisions by both county
staff and DCA. They've gone
back and forth for years on what
specifically should and should
not be allowed at Safe Harbour.
But commissioners nixed the
proposed land-plan change alto-
gether out of fear the DCA would
stymie it due to the Navy's objec-
tions. The vote was 3-2, with
Carruthers and Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy dissenting.
Carruthers said she never
received a copy of the memo and
is unclear who did and didn't
have it.
"Questions over the validity


wouldn't necessarily change my
mind, but it's not fair to distribute
something at the meeting," she
said. "I think that in the interest of
transparency, everyone should
have all the facts before they
make a decision."
Commissioner Kim Wigington
paid the memo states DCA's posi-
tion on the amendment.
"If you've been involved in
this for any amount of time, you
know DCA's position. I think it's
just an excuse to get it back on
the agenda," Wigington said,
adding she's been lobbied by
Miami-Dade attorney and New
Stock Island Properties stake-
holder Roger Bernstein to change
her vote this Wednesday.
"I feel like. I am not changing
my vote and I will especially not
change my vote due to being lob-
bied after the meeting. I don't feel
like, it's appropriate at all,"
Wigington said.
- "Someone would have to
present something that was truly
monumental for me to [change
my vote] and I can't imagine
what that would be," Neugent
said. "The other thing myself and
others feel strongly about is
what's proposed to be transmitted
to DCA would be rejected."
Skeptical of the item reappear-
ing now, he said: "I would think it
probably has more to do with
someone being lobbied by an
affected party that has a financial
interest in something. I don't
know how that's going to unfold,
but I think it'll be quickly."

Two marijuana grow houses,
one in Key Largo, one on
Ramrod Key, were taken down
this week in a statewide crack-
down of grow operations.
Overseen by the South Florida
High Intensity Drug Trafficking
Area, a multi-agency organiza-
tion with a base of operations in
Marathon, the crackdown in all
of Florida's 67 counties resulted


in the seizure of 6,828 marijuana
plants, 45 guns and 142 arrests of
people involved in 120 residen-
tial hydroponic pot labs.
In Key Largo early Friday
morning, detectives acting on a
tip knocked on the door of 32
Marlin Ave. and Rodney Dean
Miller, 39, answered.
Inside, they found two rooms
set up to grow pot, with grow
lights, timers, extra air condition-
ers, fertilizer, a watering system

and a carbon dioxide tank. They
found 9 pounds of marijuana.
Miller was charged with culti-
vation of marijuana, possession
of the illegal substance and pos-
session of drug paraphernalia.
Wednesday afternoon, acting
on a Crime Stoppers of the
Florida Keys tip, detectives went
to 27406 Martinique Lane on
Ramrod Key. They found, in
plain view, items indicating the
place was used for growing pot,
Deputy Becky Herrin said.
While detectives were on the
scene, the man who lives at the
house returned to the property.
He identified himself as David
Mann, 51, with a Florida driver's
license in that name.
As they continued to interview
him, he became visibly nervous
and provided detectives with a
second name David Lasher, 61.
After speaking with the real
David Mann, who lives in
Connecticut, detectives discov-
ered Mann's wallet was stolen 30
years ago. Herrin said it appears
Lasher may have been using
Mann's identity, all that time, so
he wvas charged with identity
theft.
That charge was a bonus. At
the house, the cops found what
they were looking for 31 pre-
packaged bags of marijuana (3.5
pounds), 47 marijuana plants,
$7,628.00 in cash, a gun and
numerous pieces of equipment
related to the grow operation.

Banana Bay offers invite


New restaurant
owners opening the
pool to the locals
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

A place called "the point" at
Marathon's Banana Bay used to
be one of those spots where
locals congregated for happy
hour. It was one of the best places
in the Middle Keys to watch the
sunset, with a tiki bar facing the
Gulf of Mexico and a giant chess
set in the sand. But when the tiki
bar was wiped out in Hurricane
Wilma in 2005, locals stopped
coming here.
But things might be about to
turn around.
The restaurant at Banana Bay,
called the Banana Cabana, re-
opened on May 25 after being
closed for more than a year. And
the owners, Cheryl Caffrey and
John Woldring, who moved
down from Grand Rapids, Mich.,
say they want to bring the locals
back to Banana Bay. There's still
no tiki bar at the point, but they
say they plan to start serving din-
ner there at sunset, and want to
invite locals to come back and eat
at the restaurant, which has one
of the largest pools in the Keys.
Among the incentives they're
offering: all residents of Monroe
County get 10 percent off on din-
ner at the restaurant, and-the pool
is free for locals to use if they buy
a meal.
Banana Bay Resort & Marina
is owned by the Boykin Lodging
Co., which has interests in hotels
in 13 states. Boykin bought
Banana Bay in January of 2006
for $12 million. The restaurant,
called Banana Cabana, is part of
the resort, but has typically been
leased from the resort and operat-
ed 'by private owners. For the last
year, the restaurant has been
more or less closed, used by the
resort only to serve continental
breakfast and sometimes light
snacks to guests staying in the
resort's 61 guestrooms. ,
Banana Cabana is now open
seven days a week, with breakfast
and lunch served every, day aind
dinner served Wednesday-
Sunday until 10:30 p.m.
The menu is all new, and
includes omelettes, French toast
and biscuits and gravy for break-


fast; burgers and steak sandwich-
es for lunch; and for dinner -
manicotti, meatloaf, bacon-
wrapped pork loin, sesame sashi-
'mi tuna and a whole lot more.
The specials on Wednesday night
included shrimp Alfredo for
$13.95 and a rack of barbecued
ribs for $9.95. Well drinks were
advertised for $4 each.
Caffrey says she and Woldring
worked all spring on finalizing
the deal to lease Banana Cabana
from the resort. She 'declined to
say how much they're paying in
rent to the resort, saying only that
it's "a lot."
Some of the items on. the menu
are distinctively Florida dishes, but
other items Caffrey says are spe-
cialties of hers, like the manicotti.
Caffrey retired from
Pharmacia, a large pharmaceuti-
cal company, and says she was
working for a steel company in
Michigan until it abruptly closed
earlier this year. She has experi-


John Woldring and Cheryl
Caffrey re-opened Banana
Cabana on May 25 and
had a grand opening last
weekend with a fashion
show around the pool. The
pool at Banana Bay is now
open for locals, as long as
they buy a meal. A sign on
the front of Banana Bay
Resort & Marina invites
the locals back.

ence in catering, having owned a
small catering company with a
friend when she lived in New
Jersey, and says she learned to
cook from her grandparents.
Woldring, she says, worked
for- a long time to persuade her to
re-locate to the Florida Keys -
though not necessarily to open a
restaurant.
"This was my dream, not his,"
she says.
Caffrey says when she came
down to the Florida Keys last
New Year's Eve on her "first
vacation ever," she knew she
wanted to open a restaurant here.
Banana Cabana now has nine
employees, including four
servers. Caffrey's son, Greg, is
working in the kitchen doing
food prep, as is her nephew.
Locals are welcome back to
try out the food, take a dip in the
pool and see if they might not
want to make Banana Cabana a
regular stop-off again.

When a boater hooks up to a
mooring buoy at the Florida Keys
reef, he uses what John Halas
describes as the embedment
anchoring system.
Nearly everyone else. calls it
the Halas Mooring Buoy System.
For his work in pioneering the
most widely used reef mooring
buoy system in the world, Halas'
was named the first-ever winner
of the Ocean Heroes Award, pre-
sented this week by the Oceana
organization.
"No one is more deserving,"
said Billy Causey, Southeast U.S.`
and Caribbean regional manager
for the National Marine
Sanctuaries Program. "John has
devoted much of his life and
career to preserving coral reefs,
and done it in more practical way
than most."
"A lot of people scratch their
heads and come up with theories
or ideas," said Causey, a Marathon
resident and former superintend-
ent of the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary. "John went out
and did something."
Oceana, a 300,000-member
worldwide nonprofit organization
with U.S. headquarters in
Washington, D.C., supports
marine research and protection. It
accepted more than 500 nomina-
tions for its first Ocean Heroes
program. Staff narrowed the field
to eight, with the winner decided
by .about two weeks of Internet
polling.
"We wanted to honor the
unsung heroes who do significant
work in their daily lives or jobs,"
Oceana scientist Elizabeth
Griffin said.
Halas received the most votes,
New Jersey marine-mammal res-
cuer Bob Schoelkopf and shark
expert Andy Dehart of The
National Aquarium staff finished
second and third, respectively.
"I'm very honored," Halas
said. "I just appreciate that I had
the opportunity to work on this as
part of my job.
"Now we have a great team in
the sanctuary that works hard to
maintain our buoys. There's a lot
more to the story than me."
Every time a boat uses a reef


the mooring buoy system, is first Ocean Hero


mooring, buoy, it prevents an,
anchor from being dropped on
coral protecting countless acres
of coral reef from anchor damage.
"When I ran a dive boat [in the
mid-1970s], -I was part of the
problem," said Halas, now the
Upper Keys regional manager for
the Keys marine sanctuary.
"There was a group of us dive
operators who tried to be consci-
entious and prevent damage to
the coral. But when you're diving
the reef, it's tough to keep an
anchor and chain off coral."
He kept working on the prob-
lem in his mind.
When-he joined the sanctuary
system in 1980 as a biologist
working in the Key Largo
National Marine Sanctuary the
preserve's first full-time staffer
- he asked for permission to
work on a mooring-buoy project.
Halas had worked with reef
expert Harold Hudson on drilling
scientific core samples of coral,
then- using marine cement to
patch the hole.
He decided to use the same
technology to place stainless steel
bolts in the reef. To the eyebolt,
he attached a line to a floating
buoy, which held a line for boats
to tie up.
Earlier mooring-buoy systems
were used in Caribbean dive
spots but most relied on heavy.
metal or cement bases that could
be dragged into coral the system
was intended to protect.

NIVENS/OCEAN IMAGING


John Halas of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary
developed a reef mooring buoy system now used around the
world. Halas has been named the Oceana organization's first
Ocean Hero for his efforts.


Halas' system "stays .where-
you put it," said the inventor.
Six prototype buoys were
installed at French Reef in June
1981.
"Not all the dive operators
wanted it," Halas recalled. "Some
were lukewarm, but others were
afraid it was the beginning of
controlling [boat] capacity at the
reef."
"Some didn't want to give .up
the mystique of using range
marks to find a dive site," he
chuckled. "But it didn't take long
before most of the operators defi-
nitely accepted the buoys."
The Keys sanctuary now has
installed 770 buoys using the sys-
tem Halas created. More than 400
are for reef moorings; the rest


mark boundaries of ocean preser-
vation areas or refuges.
"The concept of mooring
buoys had been around a long time
but John was able to take Harold
Hudson's methods and make it
work," Causey said. "The system
causes very little damage, and is
very safe when used properly.
"John has been very adaptive
about changing elements of the
design as new materials and tech-
nologies come along."
Halas and wife Judy have
traveled the world to help other
oceanfront nations develop their
mooring systems. At last count,
he has visited 38 countries (he
recently returned from Tanzania
in East Africa) to work on 75
buoy projects.

Bob Grabo%% ski has been div-
ing off Key Largo since he was
15. But he didn't start taking
pictures of what he saw under
the water until about three and a
half years ago when a "wild
hair" and a few hours on E-Bay
led him to buy a used underwa-
ter camera from a guy in Hawaii
for $35.
He's come a long way since
then, and on Saturday, June 20,
is hosting an opening reception
for an exhibition of his photo--
graphs at the 3 Arts Studio at the


Rain Barrel Artisan Village in
Islamorada.
It's sure to be a good party.

Local woman co-authors story of the Mafia


Book signing on-
June 20 for novel
with local flavor
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Is it fact or fiction? Well...
mostly fiction. But lifelong
Marathon resident Melody
(Aldacosta) Spiering-Kelly man-
aged to weave some of her fami-


ly history into a story about a
fictional Mafia boss named Don
Vito.
In the book An American
Family, which Spiering-Kelly
co-authored with her grandson,
Dennis R. Corey, Jr. of Fort
Lauderdale, the home that her
father built in Marathon next to,
the Turtle Hospital is the "family
compound."
In reality, the Aldacostas
never called it a compound.
"That was Dennis' idea," says


Spiering-Kelly. "He felt like a
Mafia boss needed a com-
pound."
On Saturday,.June 20 from 6-
9 p.m., Spiering-Kelly will sign
copies of the self-published
novel at Annette's Lobster &
Steak House at mile marker 49
in Marathon.
Spiering-Kelly, says her 33-
year-old grandson, came to her
in 2007 with pages of a book
he'd been working on.
"He was just playing around


with it, but when he showed me
the first three pages, I said, 'Oh,
there's a framework here,'" says
Spiering-Kelly.
The two began working on
the story together, with Spiering-
Kelly helping sort out Corey's
notes, and filling out the lan-
guage.
"He said, 'OK, Grandma.
We're now partners," she
remembers.
The two worked on the book
together for the next three


months, with Corey in Fort
Lauderdale and Spiering-Kelly
in Marathon, talking on the
phone and sending drafts back
and forth.
There are no real Marathon
people in the book: Spiering-
Kelly's father Was not a gang-
ster..He was Elmer Aldacosta, an
American of Portuguese descent
and one of Marathon's pioneers.
From the 1940s until 1977, when

he passed away, he was the
owner of one of the largest
seafood companies in the Keys
- Marathon Seafood, on 11th
Street, where Frosty's Restaurant
now sits.
"At one point, my father con-
trolled 62 shrimp trailers," says
Spiering-Kelly.
In An American Family,
Marathon Seafood becomes the
"Seafood Company" and the
restaurant next to it, which was
owned and operated by Spiering-
Kelly's uncle as The Fish House
Restaurant, becomes the
"Fisherman's Club."
Spiering-Kelly says she never
ran into any-Mafia types grow-
ing up in Marathon, but remem-
bers that it was well known that
Meyer Lansky, head of the
Jewish Mafia, owned Plantation
Yacht Harbor, and that the
bridges in the Keys were com-
monly used by Mafia hit men
out of Miami to dump bodies.
It was Spiering-Kelly's
grandson who came up with the
story of a Mafia boss in
Marathon named Don Vito.,
Dennis Corey, Jr. grew up in
Marathon, and at a young age
developed a fascination with
antique cars, and gangsters.
An American Family starts
with a Sicilian immigrant named
Vittoro Gela' and his young wife
arriving in New York Harbor in
the early 1920s. After a short
time, they re-settle in Chicago
where Vito goes to work for a
Mafia underboss named Big Jim.
The story is told from the
point of view of the grandson of
the man who became Don Vito,
and tells of how he came to the
Keys to put some distance -
between himself and the Mafia
goings-on in the north.
"My grandfather was already
looking to the future, way before.
prohibition ended. While all the
others were scrambling around
trying to find things in their sur-
rounding area, he went away
from the city. Making several
trips, over a couple of years, to
Florida, he found what he want-
ed in the Keys. He started buy-
ing up property, then warehous-
es, dock areas, and even restau-
rants. He had a feeling that the
building industry was going to
take off in this part of the coun-
try, and he wanted to be in on
the ground floor, so to speak.


But he was coming up against
opposition from the locals in the
Marathon area, the locals calling
him an 'outsider.' But he knew
there was money to be made
there and said, 'Screw them! I'm
here. I'm stayin'! And there's
nuthin' they can do about it.
They try, a gun to their head will

except to sometimes adjust con-
trast or brightness.
"I don't use PhotoShop at
all," he says. "What's there is
there. If there's a little mucus
handing off a sponge, it stays."
Most of the photographs
hanging on the walls at the 3
Arts Studio this month are from
dives Grabowski took off Key
Largo. A few were taken in the
waters off the Cayman Islands,
where he goes about once a year.
The water quality is different
there, he says; there's a vivid
blue that you don't see in the
Keys.
Grabowski first came to Key
Largo with his parents when he
was six. His father was a scien-


tist and researcher at the z-
Uni ersit) of Miami; his mother
was a professor.
The family had a home in
Key Largo and in Westchester,
in Dade County, and split time
between the two residences.
Grabowski, who turns 53 this
month, has a similar set-up, liv-
ing part-time in South Miami
and commuting to work at
Florida International University,
where he teaches jazz to under-
graduates. The rest of the time
he's in Key Largo. For nine
years, he worked for Carl Gage
as a dive master and dive
instructor here. There were just
three dive shops in Key Largo
when he stated working for
Gage, he remembers. And they
had the only compressor.
On Monday nights,
Grabowski can be heard on

ate for Miami, the Keys, and
Palm Beach. For years, he host-
ed a show on WTMI, the classi-
cal music station that was sold a
few years back.
Music has been in his life for -
a long time. Photography is still
new.
Grabowski now uses an
Olympus underwater digital
camera to take photos, and tries
to use only a small flash, or
none at all, relying on natural
light to illuminate the underwa-
ter world.
He's renting space at the 3
Arts Studio, he says, in order to
share his "vision of beauty."
Some of the most beautiful
photographs of Grabowski's are
of fish coming toward the cam-
era with wide eyes and funny
lips.
"Those are serendipity," he
says when asked, telling of a
snapper he encountered that
"kept coming back and coming
back and insisting on having his
picture taken."

If you've seen some of the

really great at is dancing.
Big dance numbers have

ductions for years, and so

them free to members of the
theater.
On Saturday, June 20 at 8
p.m., the theater will present a
first-annual dance showcase
called "tah-Dance." The show
will include dancing taught in
all of the dance classes at the
theater: square dancing, Latin
dance movement, belly danc-
ing, western dance and tap.
Most of the dancers will be
students in the theater's dance
classes, but several individu-
als and groups from the com-
munity will also perform.
Tickets are $12 and can be
purchased at the door the
night of the performance or at
the box office between 9 a.m.
and 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday. Those attending are

Help build a new reef


4-day program
in Upper Keys
is hands-on
Divers can work side by side
with marine scientists to help
with reef building during a coral
restoration workshop set for June
23 through 26 with the Amoray
Dive Resort in Key Largo.
Focused on environmental
education, the advocacy program
is to include two nights of lectures
and two daytime dives to restore
endangered staghom coral.
Scuba divers are to learn from
and work with coral restoration
expert Ken Nedimyer and marine
scientist Lad Akins. Respectively,
they serve as president and execu-
tive director of the Coral Restora-
tion Foundation, and lead educa-
tion and dive trips as part of the
nonprofit organization's mission.
The class sessions are to focus
on coral health, corals' function in
marine ecosystems, identification
of natural and man-made threats


to coral and the means to protect
the resource in the Florida Keys.
"This is something the average
person can get their hands on and
do," Nedimyer said. "It shows
positive results in real time."
Participants go on a working
dive at the coral nursery, an ori-
entation dive at some of the
restoration, projects that have
been completed and two dives to
plant corals on the new restora-
tion site.-
At the nursery, corals are start-
ed from clippings about the length
of a knuckle and grow to 30 or 40
centimeters- (11 to 14 inches).
After a year on the reef, they can
grow several inches tall with mul-
tiple branches, and in five years
they are strong, independent
structures serving as habitat for a
variety of tropical fish.
"Participants in the coral nurs-
ery workshops get to see what
can happen in a year and five
years," Nedimyer said. "It's like
an adrenaline shot and they feel
