Eighteen people from as close
as Key West and as far as New
Mexico, California and Maine
hope to become the first CFO of
the Keys' public schools.
That's how many have
applied so far to fill the critical
new position of internal auditor,


Internal auditor likely to have sweeping
oversight power in wake of scandal


or chief financial officer, for the
Monroe County School District,
which is facing the worst finance
crisis in its history. /-
Whoever's chosen is "going


to be looking for problems and a
trail of financial misdoing,"
School Board member John
Dick said Friday.

sweeping power to tell us if
staffing is appropriate," board

State parks in the Keys -
which include some of the most
expensive in Florida get
more expensive July 1.


At most of the parks, daily
admission fees will increase
by $1.
Driving into Bahia Honda
State Park in the Lower Keys
and John Pennekamp Coral
Reef State Park in Key Largo
will cost $8 per vehicle, plus 50
cents per person collected at all
state parks in Monroe County
as a special local fee.
Pennekamp and Bahia


Honda are among eight Florida
parks charging the $8 rate.
Where it now costs two peo-
ple in a car $6 to enter Fort
Zachary Taylor Historic, State
Park in Key West, the entry fee
will be $7 beginning July 1.
Pedestrians and bicyclists
will be charged $2.50 at Fort
Taylor, up $1.
Annual state park passes
increase nearly 40 percent -

Closure means 20
mqre miles for
Stretch residents
By KEVIN WADLOW
and CAMMY CLARK
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A sudden closure of the north-
bound lane of U.S., 1 north of
Key Largo this week-added about
30 miles to Al Papineau's regular
five-mile commute.
"This is ridiculous," said
Papirieau, who manages the
Manatee Bay Club at mile mark-
er 112 along the 18-Mile Stretch.
"Something has to be done, right
here and right now."
"Everybody up here is livid,"
agreed Loretta Westphal, presi-
dent of Manatee Bay Marine. "A
lot of people are up in arms,
including me."
All northbound traffic from
Key Largo to the mainland is
being diverted to Card Sound
Road' while contractors repair a
portion of the new U.S. 1 that
failed. The detour went into
effect Thursday, two days after it
was announced.

"They're having parties at two

Commute lengthens


STRETCH / From 1

The northbound road above
Jewfish Creek is closed around
the clock until July 2, when it
reopens for the July 4 weekend.
If necessary, the closure will
resume Jply 6. Tolls have been
lifted'for northbound traffic on
Card Sound Road.
Access to Gilbert's Resort and
other Jewfish Creek businesses
-was closed Friday.
Michael Derksenr, project man-
ager for Granite Construction,
said the road problems occurred
because a below-ground divider
between the new northbound
lanes and the previously existing
southbound lanes cracked.
An average of 21,000 vehicles
travel the stretch daily.
"It is a major closure,'" said
Jeannette Lazo, spokeswoman
for the Florida Department of
Transportation. "But it's an'
important repair that needs to be
done. We can't wait because of
the weather, with hurricane sea-
son here."
While the traffic will add
miles on the mainland trip for all-
motorists (except emergency
vehicles), the effect is particular-
ly acute for those who live or
work at Manatee Bay.
To reach the Manatee Bay
area from Key Largo during the
closure, motorists must drive to
Florida City.on Card Sound. then
double back 15 miles south on


U.S. 1.
"We need to be open seven
days a week, and this puts a huge
burden on us," Westphal said.
"Vendors can't reach us, and
we've already lost some cus-
tomers."
. One couple came to stay at the
marina but left when they learned
thatatrip to Key Largo for dinner
would require a 45-minute drive
to get back, Westphal said.
Some Key Largo residents
work at the Manatee Bay busi-
nesses, like Garden Cove subdivi-
sion resident Papineau. Some
Manatee Bay-residents work in
Key Largo, Westphal said, citing
a postal worker and police officer.
"They give me two days'
notice for a closure that will prob-
ably last a month? You've got to
be kidding me," Westphal said.
Said Papineau, "Who's going
to pay for my gas and mileage?
I'd like to talk to them."
The two-day advance notice
occurred because the closure
involves several agencies and
contractors, said Abbie Kelley,
spokeswoman for the U.S. 1
reconstruction project.
Granite Construction was paid
about $148 million for its portion
oT the Stretch project, which
included widening the road from
mile marker 106 in Key Largo to
the Miami-Dade/Monroe County
line at mile marker 113, plus
building the new 1.4-mile
Jewfish Creek Bridge. ''

the wild places that Marathon youth liked to
explore. It was uninhabited and isolated. The

from $43.40 for an individual

a family pass to $120.
"As the first fee update in five
years, additional state park user.
fees will supplement current rev-
enue sources used to maintain the
state's valuable natural and cul-
tural resources within Florida's
160 state. parks," the Florida Park
Service said in prepared state-
ment. "Nearly half of the $81
million used to operate the state
park system is raised from
entrance and usage fees."-
. Department of Environmental
Protection Deputy Secretary Bob
Ballard called the parks "one of
the- most affordable activities in
the state."
Fee increases also will affect
rates for camping (up an average
of $4 per night), and cabin rental
(up an average of $10).
Price increases were approved


as part of the state budget passed
by the Florida Legislature.

Only Laundromat burns


Maytag's closed
indefinitely
in Middle Keys
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A fire early Thursday morn-
ing at the Maytag Clean Laundry
in Marathon has put the city's
last coin laundry indefinitely out
of business.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
says the fire broke out at 12:13
a.m. at the Laundromat, at U.S. 1
and 60th Street, and destroyed
the back portion of the business
where owner Donna Farmer kept
her office.
Burnett said Marathon Fire
Rescue had the blaze under con-
trol quickly much to the
delight of the laundry's resident
dog Willy: Farmer said the .19-
month-old, 80-pound Catahoula
- who's mostly blind wag in
a crate close to the flames, but
firefighters broke into the build-
ing to rescue him.
. "They gave him oxygen and
took him to the Marathon
Veterinary [Hospital]. He's doing
well and I heard all the EMT
guys checked on him," she said.
SAs she surveyed the damage
Thursday morning, Farmer told
the Keynoter she plans to reopen
the 28-year-old family business.
"If it's at all possible, we'll do
our best to get it up as quickly as
we can. Luckily the flames didn't
damage the washers and dryers,"
Farmer said.
The closest coin laundries to
Marathon are on Big Pine Key
and on Duck Key.
Intense heat from the flames
buckled the blades on all three
ceiling fans in the front part of
the- Maytag business. The heat
also buckled a PVC pipe in the
laundry room,'causing it to burst"
and sprinkle water around the
area.
Friends showed up in earnest
to console Farmer Thursday
morning, including longtime
employee Sophia Stuart, who put
the incident in perspective.
"It's not just a Laundromat,
it's like home," Stuart said. "Our
kids grew up here. It's a bit much
to swallow.",
The future of the laundry was
already in doubt, as Farmer
learned last year she'd be faced
with a large fee to connect to
Marathon's sewer system.

It's our primary source of vitamin D, which helps uS absorb
calcium for stronger, healthier bones. Most kids rack up
between 50% and 80% of their lifetime sun exposure before
age 18,so it's important that parents teach their children how
to enjoy fun in the sun safely.With the right precautions, our
Florida Key's kids and grown -ups can safely play in the sun.
Here are the most effective strategies:

he -. f tha -
First, avoid being in the sun for prolonged times when it's
highest overhead and therefore the strongest. If kids are in
the sun between the hours of 10am 4pm, be sure to apply
protective sunscreen even if they're just playing in the
backyard. Most sun damage occurs as a result of incidental
exposure during day-to-day activities, not at the beach.


One of the best ways to protect your family from the sun is to
cover up and shield skin from UV rays. Ensure that clothes will
screen out harmful UV rays by placing your hand inside'the
garments and making sure you can't see it through them.

Use . Sen s isen
What matters most in a sunscreen is the degree of protection
from UV rays it provides and that it is applied correctly.

lS& ~ 6 V-6e
Sun exposure damages the eyes as well as-the skin. Even 1 day
in the sun can result in a burned cornea (the outermost, clear
" membrane layer of the eye).


Some medications increase the skin's sensitivity to UV rays.
As a result, even kids with skin that tends not to burn easily
can develop a severe sunburn in just minutes when taking
certain medications. Fair-skinned kids, of course, are even
more vulnerable.

Keys Opinion


Long past time we

end political patronage

The last time the subject of appointed vs. elected schools
superintendent: hit the public radar was March 2004, when
Keys voters decided to stick with an elected office holder to run
Monroe County's schools.
Recent financial scandals and criminal charges brought
against the elected superintendent and his wife who was
promoted by her husband when she worked for the district -
argues loudly for wholesale reform.
And that means letting Keys voters decide the best course
moving forward. Clearly, having competing political agendas
is a broken model.
As the five elected School Board members now wrestle with
putting together an $87 million budget, their focus properly
should be keeping schools operating efficiently, teacher con-
tracts and commitment to classroom achievement.
That leaves the task of organizing for a voter referendum on
elected vs. appointed superintendent to community leaders,
teachers, parents and others who believe in good governance.
This newspaper has endorsed moving to an appointed super-
intendent all three times it's gone before the voters.
In light of today's headlines, our March 6, 2004 editorial
bears repeating: "Putting the superintendent on equal footing
with the elected [School] Board becomes a recipe for big egos
and power plays.... In the long run, we'll be better off with less
politics and more focus on a shared vision to educate our kids
the very best way we know how so they are prepared to suc-
ceed in life."
Perhaps the most compelling argument for a hired education
expert not a politician comes from the collected wisdom
of parents, educators and elected school boards throughout the
country.
Out of 15,000 school districts nationwide, only 154 still elect
a superintendent and all of those are isolated in three south-
ern states: Alabama, Mississippi and Florida.
Georgia and Tennessee moved entirely to appointed superin-
terndents in the past decade.
Instead of being locked into an outmoded political patronage
system, it's time for the Keys to put our students first not
just some slogan, but really mean it this time.
It's time to step up to the plate.
The first step in getting this on the ballot will come in meet-
ings later this year that precede the spring 2010 Legislative ses-
sion. In the past, state Rep. Ron Saunders has been leery of
pushing local voter referendums, which need legislative
approval to put on the ballot, without strong evidence of full
public debate locally and strong, grassroots support.
What better time than now to begin this process?

Dangerous intersection needs a stoplight to save lives


EDITOR:
-At the intersection of U.S. 1, 72nd Street
and Aviation Boulevard in Marathon, there is
a very high need to add a stoplight.
There have been deaths, numerous
injuries, many accidents and hundreds of
close calls at this location. It could be you, a
loved one, a stranger, a City Council member
or a Department of Transportation worker
next. With the addition of the 84 new units
from the Seagrape housing project, the possi-
bility is only going to increase that more
accidents and deaths will happen. How bad
will the in-season traffic be in this area for


Big Pine land deal is poor
EDITOR:
Last Stand recently learned of a secret
real estate deal that resulted in the loss to
the National Key Deer Refuge of an impor-
tant 4.4-acre portion of the Ocean Bluff
tract.
In the 1980s, there was an epic battle on
Big Pine Key between local civic activists,
notably Grace Manillo, and the developers
of Ocean Bluff. This tract contained 43.5
acres on the windward Atlantic dune ridge in
part of Cactus Hammock, a unique ecosys-
tem that supported endangered species
including Key deer, the Lower Keys marsh
rabbit and Keys tree.cactus. With help from
the Trust for Public Lands, the Ocean Bluff
tract was acquired and transferred into pub-
lic ownership, the National Key Deer
Refuge. It was saved, and now it's not.
Refuge lands cannot be sold off, but a
loophole allows trades.
In January, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service traded the 4.4 acres of Ocean Buff to
the Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge, which had
leased this land for decades as a rustic .
campground. During this time, a boat basin
and canal cu t ing through the dune drained
fresh water and brought saltwater deep into
the Cactus Hammock. Hurricanes and sea
level rise further decimated the buttonwood.
swamp that formed a protective buffer.

Careful with the gas
EDITOR:
All the years I have been putting gas in my
car, I relied on the little trigger hold on the
pump handle to shut off the gas pumping to my
tank when it got full.
On a recent day, as usual, I was intent watch-
ing the pump screen for the readout when a guy
at the next pump yelled at me and pointed at my
car. I looked down and gas was overflowing
onto-the ground because the shutoff device did-
n't work right. About two gallons had spilled
out. I got the station, manager, who used
absorbent to pick up the gas on the ground.
Luckily; no other cars had pulled in behind me.
Otherwise, who knows?

accidents and businesses?
Since the Seagrape project began, I have
invited the engineers, past city planner Gail
Kenson and City Council members to come
sit in my yard, either in the morning or
evening, to obtain added, insight into the
problems at this intersection. No one has
taken me up on this offer yet.
Pleaseattend the next City Council meet-
ing, at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, to voice your
opinion.

policy
Consequently, the tree cactus has been
reduced by about 95 percent in the last 11
years, from 440 to 25 stems. The situation is
precarious.
In exchange for the 4.4-acre parcel, Fish
& Wildlife received one acre on U.S. 1. The
agency wants a visitor center, even though
the community is concerned about traffic
impacts and the probability of more Key
deer road kills.
Last Stand deplores this missed opportu-
nity to protect and restore Cactus Hammock.
The result may be the loss of the tree cactus
from its natural range and the undermining
of critical habitat. We are concerned about
the long-range potential for increased devel-
opment of the 4.4 acres that may impact
adjoining refuge lands.
We hope that Fish & Wildlife will work
with the fishing lodge to ensure good stew-
ardship and with the Florida Keys
Restoration Fund on a plan to restore the
hydrology of Cactus Hammock. Filling the
canal and boat basin would provide more dry
land, and restoring the dune would help to
protect this exposed southeast corner of Big
Pine Key.

Welsh, Clark might stay


By DAVID BALL
and SEAN KINNEY
dball@keysreporter.com


After saying their final good-
byes to students and faculty last
week, the principals of Coral
Shores and Key West high
schools might be returning next
school year after all.
Monroe County School Board
members said suspended
Superintendent Randy Acevedo's
controversial decision to not
renew contracts for Coral.Shores
Principal Ron Martin and Key
West Principal John Welsh next
year is on hold for now.
"Those decisions 'that Randy
made are out the door and we're
starting from a clean slate," board
.member John Dick said Tuesday
after- three and a half hours of
closed-door negotiations with
administrators over personnel cuts.
"Nothing is 100 percent right
now; but I think neither of [the
principals] need a short-timer
stick," he said, meaning Martin
and Welsh might want to prepare
to return next year.
School Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said the board is "uni-
fied" in its strategy. concerning
personnel for next year -
although he wouldn't elaborate
on the principals' positions.
Griffiths 'said more will be
learned this coming Tuesday,
when attorney Latour "L.T."
Lafferty will report to the board
on which, if any, current adminis-
trators can be disciplined or pos-
sibly fired because of involve-
ment in the School District finan-
cial scandal.
Acting Superintendent Mike
Henriquez will then have to make


his recommendations for person-
nel by June 30.
On June 11, a grand jury
indicted Acevedo on a charge of
official misconduct for allegedly
covering up theft allegedly com-
mitted by his wife, former Adult
Education Coordinator Monique
Acevedo. Gov. Charlie Crist sus-
pended Randy Acevedo without
pay later that day.
Prosecutors say Monique
Acevedo stole more than
$180,000 in tuition paid by stu-
dents for classes she oversaw
before she quit on March 3. She's
charged with theft and fraud.
More charges are likely, after
investigators uncovered hundreds
of thousands more ifi apparently
fraudulent purchases made by
Monique Acevedo.
About a week before his arrest
and suspension, Randy Acevedo
informed Martin and Welsh that
he wasn't renewing their con-
tracts in order to save money in
the 2009-10 budget.
Acevedo said he was moving
assistant principals into the princi-
pal positions and eliminating the
assistant principal positions. These.
and other moves would save
roughly $430,000, Acevedo said.
But some board members said
Aeevedo's decisions were politi-
cally motivated especially in
regard to Welsh, who told district
finance officials 'about 'some of
Monique Acevedo's alleged thefts.
Martin, who worked at Coral
Shores for 36 years, said he feels
like he's in a soap opera.
"Feel like I'm in limbo," he
said. "I've packed a lot of boxes
already, but I'd still be interested


in coming back."

The Wade question
As for what role the
Acevedos' son Wade played in
the alleged thefts and coverup,
Assistant State Attorney Mark
Wilson said the public needs to
take a deep breath.
He called public reaction to
video equipment purchased by
Monique Acevedo that Key West
publication reported was missing,
then found in storage at Key West
High School, "nonsense."
"It's a totally manufactured
issue," Wilson said. "Nothing has
gone in and out of those rooms.
That equipment has never been
missing. We've known it's been
there the whole time. It suggests
this is stuff we've been scouring
the earth for."
Investigators did confirm they
are looking into whether
Monique Acevedo purchased a
$10,000 portable video mixer and
other high-end equipment with
district money for Wade.
Wilson said the non-issue of
the video equipment came about
because "public interest has been
whipped into a fury."

Swine flu case confirmed


But Eadie says
it's not a sign
of big outbreak
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Health
Department confirmed Wednes-
day that a young girl treated last,
week at Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon was treated for swine
flu the Keys' first case of the
illness.
Health Department Director
Robert Eadie says the girl was
admitted to Fishermen's late last
week exhibiting common
influenza-like symptoms. She
was treated and released, but test
results on Wednesday confirmed
the girl had contracted the H1N1
virus, as it's known.
"She was. treated with antivi-
rals, which is the standard course
of treatment for people with viral
infections," Eadie said. "We'll
follow up to figure out where it
.came from."
Eadie added the girl "has
exhibited no symptoms nor has
any family member" since her


release. He urged Keys residents
not to be alarmed by the con-
firmed case and to continue to
observe proper hygienic practices
such as washing hands and stay-
ing indoors if ill.
"Things to take away from
this situation is that we do not
have an outbreak of flu in the

Keys and we are preparing for the
possibility of a more serious
recurrence during the fall, but
that is just in the sense of being


prepared. There's no indication it
will become more virulent,"
Eadie said.
H1N1 originated in Mexico in
midrMarch and by early May had
reached South Florida. With so
many travelers from around the
world visiting Florida, Eadie said
it was only a matter of time
before it spread to the Keys.
"Given the fact that this sub-
strain of flu has been found in
adjoining counties, its not unusual
for it to be here. But there's no
indication of an outbreak," he said.
Florida's only confirmed death
from the swine flu happened June
9 in Miami-Dade County. The
boy who died had asthma.
The World Health Organiza-
tion has declared H1N1 a pan-
demic, but Eadie said that's not
indicative of the virus' virulence.
"It only indicates that the sub-
strain is prevalent throughout the
world," he said. -
Eadie said there have been
462 confirmed cases of H1N1 in
Florida as of Wednesday after-
noon. As of June 11, according to
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, 17,855 cases and
44 deaths have been confirmed
across the country.

Bonefish workshops coming


FWC also exempts
Keys limits on
some gulf fish
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com.

Proposed changes on bone-
fish rules will go to public
workshops this fall, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission ordered Thursday.
The state's top fishery man-
agers approved a staff recom-
mendation to schedule the ses-
. sions, leading to an FWC deci-
sion at its December meeting
in Clewiston.
Agency staff has recom-
mended that Florida law on
bonefish be expanded from
state waters to adjacent federal
waters, since there are no fed-
eral regulations on harvesting
bonefish.
Under consideration will be
a proposal from the Bonefish
and Tarpon. Trust group to
essentially make bonefish a
no-take species, with possible
exceptions for fishing-record
purposes.
Creating a special bonefish
tag, like the $50 tag required to
harvest a tarpon, also will be
discussed..
Bonefish issues drew little
comment. after staff biologists
made a presentation at
Thursday's Crystal River
meeting, agency spokesman
Lee Schlesinger said.
"We had some hot fishery
topics, but bonefish was not
one of.them," he said.
Nothing will be decided
until the December meeting,
he noted-.
.The FWC usually schedules
its December meeting in
Monroe County, but this year
the board expanded its list of
meeting places to include areas
where it doesn't often meet,
Schlesinger said.
While the bonefish work-
shops likely will come to the
Keys, no full FWC meeting is
planned locally in 2009.

In other issues at this
week's FWC meeting in
Crystal River:
+ Monroe County waters
were exempted from a new
reduction on recreational shal-
low-water grouper harvests in
the Gulf of Mexico. The aggre-
gate daily, bag limit for
grouper. species in the gulf will
drop from five fish to four, in
accord with new federal rules.
State waters of Monroe
County generally are managed
to conform with South Atlantic
federal rules, Schlesinger
noted.
A Feb. 1 to March 31 closed
season for all recreational har-
vest of shallow-water groupers
(gag, black, red, yellowfin,
scamp, yellowmouth, rock
hind and red hind) in gulf state
waters also will not apply in


Monroe County.
The commission pro-
posed a draft rule amendment
to clarify that it is unlawful to
buy or sell snook at any time,
and illegal to possess snook in
a closed season. The rule will
take effect unless a formal
request for a hearing is
received.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING


The Marathon City Council will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, July 14,2009, at 5:30 p.m., at
the Marathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas Highway'.
The purpose of the public hearing is to consider and establish the total and annual non-ad valorem
assessment rate for the Avenue K Assessment Area consisting of parcels along Avenue K. The purpose of
the non-ad valorem assessment is to cover the costs to design and install roadway improvements to Avenue
K. Each lot owner within the Avenue K Assessment Area would be charged a proportionate share of the
road improvement costs.' The pre-payment rate per lot will be $9,495.
The annual assessment rate per lot (including financing costs) will be $1,402.00 and will be imposed for 10
years commencing Fiscal Year 2009-10.
The annual assessment amounts will appear on the "non-ad valorem" portion of the 2009 tax bill and future
bills and collected by the Monroe County Tax Collector unless changed by the City Council. ,

incorporated under a different
name that built and operate the
Grove Harbour Marina in
Coconut Grove.
Plans call for:
+ Dockage for boats between
35 feet and 100 feet totaling
around 87 slips.
Surrounding harbor walk,
pavilions and children's play area.
. This plan would cost an esti-
mated $14 million, with a 32-
month schedule for design, per-
mitting and construction. The
developers indicate in their bid
that they have cash assets avail-
able to invest inr the project.
The other bid comes from
newly formed local developer
Meisel and Spottswood Marina
Management Co. Spottswood is
synonymous with. Keys lodging,
owning and operating numerous
hotels in Key West and
Marathon. Joe Meisel's compa-
nies run the Casa Marina and
Reach resorts.
Their representatives will
make a pitch to the City
Commission on Wednesday at 6


p.m. in Old City Hall. Their plan
calls for:
Dockage for boats between
60 feet and 250 feet long, with 37
slips and space for 18 mega-
yachts along 800 feet of water-
front.
.* Surrounding park space to
include an interactive water fea-
ture, open play fields, a harbor
walk and the extension of
Southard and Petronia streets.
Renovation of an aban-
doned 14,000 square-foot former
Navy building that would house
facilities for boat owners and
crew, a restaurant and a large
swimming pool.
The developers would look to
the city to help finance the $32
million price tag by issuing a
long-term revenue bond, which
they suggest could be supported
by a dedicated half-cent tax from
the newly implemented one-cent
increase in the bed tax.
Also 'during the Wednesday
meeting, commissioners will pos-
sibly vote on a replacement for
Commissioner Dan Kolhage,
whose last day is Tuesday.

The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday bid
farewell to Commissioner Dan
Kolhage and agreed on a process
to appoint an interim commis-
sioner to take his place until the
fall election.
Kolhage is moving with his
family to Boone, N.C., and shifted
his original end date from July 3 to
this coming Tuesday so the
remaining commissioners can take
nominations and appoint a
replacement at a previously sched-
uled workshop set for Wednesday.
That workshop is to talk about the
Truman Waterfront and starts at 6
p.m. at Old City Hall.
Tuesday, acting Mayor Mark
Rossi Mayor Morgan
McPherson was absent pre-
-sented Kolhage with a fire chief's
helmet to honor both Kolhage's
support and his ability to put out
fires real and figurative.
"Thank you tremendously for
what you've done with the last
four years of your life," Rossi
said as he presented the keepsake.
"The city has relied on you as
someone who will always get in a
little deeper than what's on the
surface," Commissioner Barry
Gibson said. "We'll miss your
financial wisdom."
"I. know Dan doesn't like
these- kind of testimonials,"
Commissioner Bill Verge said,
"but we've had a good run, a real-
ly good run."
That run a little less than
four years is now over.
The primary reason to appoint
a replacement for Kolhage is to
avoid -any tie votes during the
summer budgeting cycle.
The consensus among com-

missioners, although McPherson
and Commissioner Clayton
Lopez were absent, was that an
appointment should be made
despite some reservations.
Commissioner Teri Johnston
pointed out that there's no way to
bar. whoever's appointed from
running for office, so any
appointee would enjoy an incum-
bency advantage if he or she opts
to run for the seat in October.
At their meeting Wednesday,
commissioners will consider
nominations for Kolhage's seat;
whoever holds it must live in
District III. Then a majority vote
will fill the vacancy; if a majority
can't be reached, the seat will
stay vacant.

Extended term?
Gibson, citing recent budget
meetings, on Tuesday asked City
Attorney Shawn Smith the
process for changing the mayoral
term to four years from two.
"I'n not sure what the original
.intention was," Gibson said, but

-"the election cost was close to

Plus, "You just get done and are
starting over again," Kolhage said,
referring to the campaign process.
Smith said a change in the
length of term would require a
city charter amendment, which
must be approved by voters via
referendum.
For a referendum to be on the
Oct. 6 ballot, an ordinance allow-
ing it has to pass two readings
before Aug. 14.
If the ordinance passes two
readings before the commission
and is approved via referendum,
then the new extended mayoral
term would. apply to whoever
wins the Oct. 6 election. So far
McPherson, NAPA Auto Parts

city and county candidate Sloan

NOTICE OF HEARING TO IMPOSE AND
PROVIDE FOR COLLECTION OF SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS

Notice is hereby given that the City of Marathon, Florida, will conduct a public hearing to
consider the imposition of special assessments against certain parcels of property located in the City. The
hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, on July 14,2009 Marathon
Government Center, EOC Room, 2798 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida, for the purpose of receiving

the hearing, such person will need a record of the proceedings and may need to ensure that a verbatim record
is made, including the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be made.
The Assessments have been proposed to fund construction of wastewater collection and treatment
facilities. The assessment for each parcel of property will be based, in part, on the number of equivalent
dwelling units attributable to such parcel, and, in part, on the number of connections attributable to such
parcel. Unless prepaid, the annual assessment will include your share of the principal, interest and
collection cost. The maximum annual assessment is estimated to be $415 per EDU and $93 per Connection.
A more specific description is set forth in the Initial Assessment Resolution adopted by the City Council on,
June 9, 2009. Copies of the Initial Assessment Resolution, the plans and specifications for the wastewater
collection and treatment facilities, and the preliminary Assessment Roll are available for inspection at the
offices of the City Manager, located at 9805 Overseas Highway, Marathon, Florida.
The assessments will be collected on the ad valorem tax bill, as authorized by Section 197.3632, Florida
Statutes. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property which
may result in a loss of. title. The City Council intends to collect the assessments in not to exceed twenty
(20) annual assessments, the first of which will be included on the ad valorem tax bill to be mailed in
November 2009. Future annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner.

West Mayor Morgan McPherson
and City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez.
McPherson and Lopez were
absent from the City Commission
meeting Tuesday night, so Vice
Mayor Mark Rossi awarded the
Community Housing Mayor's
Award to Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust
Executive Director Norma Jean
Sawyer, Lopez's appointee to the
city's Community Housing
Committee.
"I do not accept this award as
the mayor's award but as an
award from my peers," Sawyer
told an awkwardly silent commis-
sion chamber. "Iow unfair. How
hypocritical."
The all-volunteer Community
Housing Committee selected and
nominated Sawyer for the award.
Sawyer alleged that
McPherson and Lopez have
worked to divide Bahama Village
residents and to stall housing
efforts of the Land Trust, includ-
ing its proposed lease of 6.6 acres
of the Truman Waterfront.
Sawyer recalled meeting
McPherson.
"I thought that was the begin-
ning of a wonderful relationship. I
said to myself, Finally I see some
light at the end of the tunnel."
But "the mayor fooled me and
so did Commissioner Lopez.

with the Keynoter's
classified section.
743-5551


Over the past year, because of
greed for power and misplaced
anger, the mayor and
Commissioner Lopez have
unjustly maligned my name.
They've tried to sully the reputa-
tion of the BCCLT as credible
and capable ... as to divide us and
keep us from becoming a
stronger advocate."
She said her projects haven't
received support from' city offi-
cials because she won't play the
game where "you rub my back
and I'll grease your palm."
In early. May, City Attorney
Shawn Smith told commissioners
that the land Trust had billed the
city twice for rehabilitation proj-
ects at 304 Truman Ave. and 227
Virginia St. to the tune of
$102,000.
That finding came just before
the commission was set to vote on
the Land Trust's waterfront lease
agreement, which proposes 86
one- and two-bedroom apart-
ments, retail space, bocce ball
courts, community gardens,
library and Bahamian cultural
museum.
Now, the lease is in limbo and
the city is searching for outside
auditors to pore over the Land
Trust's books. Sawyer and her
organization maintain the double
billing was an "honest mistake on
the part of their auditors and
doesn't belie any sort of malfea-
sance or fraud.
James Marquardt, a former
Land Trust president and current
District VI commission candi-
date, accompanied Sawyer to
receive the award; he and Lopez
are the only announced candi-
dates so far running in District VI
in the Oct. 6 general election.

Voter group cites fear'


Leader disavows
his own words,
Sawyer doesn't
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The president of a
statewide group that works .to
register minorities to vote is
now backing off his own con-
tention that Key West has
racial problems that cause
"strong fear and apprehen-
sion."
But a prominent member of
the black community says his
words are dead-ori.
Members of the Florida
Voters League are.coming to
Key West for their annual con-
vention, which runs from June
25 through June 28. .
League President Eugene
Poole'of Ocala sent a June 8
letter to city. Mayor Morgan
McPherson and .the City
Commission and copied Gov.
Charlie Crist, county Mayor
George Neugent and U.S. sen-
ators Mel Martinez and Bill
Nelson, among others.
"I would be [remiss] or
derelict if I did not inform all
of you that many of our mem-
bers are coming with strong
fear and apprehension due to
the many horror stories about
Key West such as: racial ten-
sion, Black Americans not
welcome, double standards,
partisan politics, how slaves
were treated, and dissension
among.public officials."
Poole expects between 75
and 100 members of his group

will turn up for the conven-
tion. He said he visited Key
West 25 years ago.
"We had a good time,"
Poole said. "I remember that
well."
Asked about the specifics
of what he alleged in the let-
ter, Poole distanced himself
and said, "I cannot attest to
that."
Instead, he referred to what
he called a time in the past
when "Black Americans were
not welcome down there.
There was a lot of friction
between public officials and
community leaders."
Poole told the Keynoter the
Florida Voters League has 22
chapters statewide with
around 25,000 members total.
The local chapter is part of
the Bahama Conch Com-
munity Land Trust. The trust
is under the direction of
Executive Director Norma
Jean Sawyer, also a Florida
Voters League board member.
The trust rehabs houses and
converts' them into deed-
restricted affordable housing.
Poole said "we've taken.
them by the arm and .we're
going to help- them with any
problem they have."
"The board, as a body,
knows nothing about this,"
Land Trust board member Bob
Kelly said..
Asked if Poole's characteri-
zation in the letter of racial
dynamics in the Southernmost
City is correct, Sawyer, said,
"If you were a black person

Bahama Village, you would
.say yes, it is."
The trust-has come under
scrutiny from the city after the
city reimbursed it $102,000
twice for the same rehabilita-
tion project. The city wants to
audit the trust's books. The
trust called it an honest mis-
- take and said the money would
eventually be paid back.
But the' discovery of the
discrepancy was made right
before a vote by the City
Commission to approve a 99-
year-lease with the trust for
6.6 acres of the Truman
Waterfront.
Sawyer has repeatedly
expressed her belief that the
city is working to stop the
trust from obtaining the lease
and moving forward with its
plan to develop 86 one- and
two-bedroom apartments,
retail space, community gar-
dens, bocce ball courts and a
Bahamian cultural museum.
"They've given us the jerk-
around," Sawyer said. "If
that's not race, I don't know
what is."

No power still for No Name


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Monroe County
Commission, meeting in regular
session Wednesday, took the fol-
lowing actions:
u Shot down a group of No
Name Key property owners seek-
ing use of county rights of way to
bring Key Energy Services elec-
tricity to the Lower Keys island.
Thirty of the island's 43
homeowners signed affidavits
stating a desire for commercial
power and a willingness to pay
for it. Right now, residents use
solar or generators, Whether to
bring commercial power to No
Name has been debated for years.
Residents in favor of commer-
cial electricity paraded before the
commission, many stating that
No Name being a "solar commu-
nity" is a misnomer. That's
because of the toxicity of the bat-
teries used to store solar energy.
At issue Wednesday was a
1951 county resolution granting
*City Electric, now Keys Energy
Services, blanket permission to
use rights of way to extend the
power grid to No Name. County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton said the
resolution still applies, but oppo-
nents argue there was no bridge
to No Name Key at the time.
The 'vote to -use the rights of
way failed 3-2, with Mayor
George Neugent and
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro
voting to allow it.
Staff was directed to draft a
report addressing preservation of
-character of the island and poten-
tial liability in providing use of
rights of way.
-u Reaffirmed its rejection of a


controversial working-waterfront
amendment to the county's land-
use plan.
The amendment was adopted
last year to help advance a poten-
tially 300-plus-room hotel on
Safe Harbour in Stock Island,
however, the commission decid-
ed to do away with it altogether
June 2, saying it was a waste of
" time because the, state would
never approve it.
The amendment called for
New Stock Island Properties to
preserve a percentage of its work-"
ing waterfront for commercial
purposes in exchange for more
hotel density on the property.
The amendment has under-
gone several revisions by both
county staff and state Department
of Community Affairs. They've
gone back and forth for years on
what specifically should and
should not be allowed at Safe
Harbour.
Commissioner Heather
Carruthers requested the item be
reconsidered Wednesday, citing
concerns about a memo prepared
by DCA Keys representative
Rebecca Jetton. It was handed out
during the critical June 2 meet-
ing, but only Commissioner Kim
Wigingtor had a copy.
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.
Fellow commissioners felt
Carruthers was lobbied to put the
iteri back on the .agenda, likely
by Safe Harbour property owner

Bernstein pleaded with the
commission Wednesday to change
its vote saying the county is send-
ing the' wrong message to poten-

$150,million in the project.
The commission approved a
motion by Commissioner Di

Navy continues to get

The ;Truman Annex Master
Property Owners Association on
Thursday settled a case against
the U.S. government over plans
for a gate into the private com-
munity on Southard Street.
The homeowners association
has tried several times to erect
the gate, but has been stymied
by the city over building rules,
and the military, which says it
needs access to its land at the
Truman Waterfront. Southard
goes through Truman Annex to
the waterfront. In February, U.S.
District Court Judge Jose E.

Treasure hunt still on


Mel Fisher
shareholders re-up
as economy rattles
By MARGARET MENGE

You might assume that the
people over at Mel Fisher's
Treasures would have enough
gold bars to get them through
tough economic times. But
Shawn Cowles, head of investor
-relations for Motivation Inc., the
official name of the Mel Fisher
salvage company, says they also
were affected by the stock mar-
ket's plunge last -fall. At least
temporarily.
"I'd say we were down 20 or
30 percent," he, says of the reten-
tion rate of investors in the com-
pany.
The Fisher family owns 65
percent of Motivation Inc., or 65
shares. But the remaining 35 per-
cent of the treasure company is
owned by investors who buy
shares as they come available. A
single share of the privately held
corporation can be purchased for
$80,000. Shares are also sold in
fractions, with the smallest frac-
tion of a share being one eighth of
one share worth $10,000.
The Mel Fisher company


depends on the investors to fund
the salvage operation. Exactly
$2.8 million is raised each year
from sales of shares to fund two
boats the Magruder and the
Dare that bring treasure up
from the ocean floor off Key West.
The mother, load of the
Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora
de Atocha was discovered by Mel
Fisher in 1985, in the area around
the Dry Tortugas, about 60 miles
west- of Key West. Crews have
been diving to the ocean floor
every day since to uncover and
salvage the treasure from the
Atocha and the Santa Margarita,
both ships, that were caught in
rough seas in 1662 on their way
from Havana back to Spain,
loaded with treasure from mines
in Colombia.
Investors buy shares with dol-
lars, and are paid each year in
treasure, when the gold, silver,
jewels and antiquities that were
salvaged in the preceding year
are divided up at Division Week
in Key West. At this year's
Division Week, investors got
treasure that was valued at about
10 percent above their original
investment. The year before, the
take was about 70 percent, says
Cowles.
There are now about 180 indi-


vidual investors, in Mel Fisher's
Treasures, who must re-sign and
pay each year to get a cut of the
next year's treasure.
.. Cowles, who started out work-
ing as a diver for Mel Fisher's
Treasures, says the company's
normal retention rate is a
"strong" 70 percent, meaning that
70 percent of the private
investors make another invest-
ment each year on the date that
their shares expire.
"In more recent months, what's
been interesting to watch is we've
been gangbusters," says Cowles.
He says more than 70 percent of
investors have been re-signing, and
many new investors coming on.
The price of gold has shot up
in the last five years, from about
$400 an ounce in 2004 to now
more than $900 an ounce. This
follows a 10-year period between
1990 and 2000 when the price of
gold was relatively flat, staying
around $300 and $400 ,an ounce.
It's clear from the data: a turbu-
lent stock market is good for
gold, and good for Mel Fisher's
Treasures.
"Now all of a sudden," says
Cowles,-"our company, treasure
hunting, is at least as stable as
putting money into a bank stock
that flops...People are coming
into it because they know at least
it's going to be fun."

Tour helps preserve WPA artists' past:
By SEAN KINNEY .. --..
skinney@keynoter.com -,
^____________________________ __ __-.__. ._. -- .' :.' ^ ^ ..


- Key West's rich cultural and
artistic past sometimes gets over-
shadowed by the lure of the
Duval Crawl, but some'locals are,
working to preserve what they
see as the Southernmost City's
finest attraction: Historic art.
When the stock market
crashed in 1929, all classes of'
American society fell upon hard
times. In Key West, a mixture of
isolation and limited resources
combined to make the 1930s par-
ticularly hard down here at the
end of the road.
In that decade, Key West had
an average unemployment rate of
85 percent compared to a nation-
al average of 35 percent. Enter
President Franklin Roosevelt and
the Works Progress Admin-
istration.
"Roosevelt believed if you
saved the economy but not the4
culture, you weren't saving any-
thing," says Nance Frank, who
spearheaded the county's Art in
Public Places program. -
In 1934, then-Gov. Dave
Sholtz assigned Julius Stone, then
state administrator of the Federal
Emergency Relief Administra-
.tion, to come up with a.plan. In
no time, Stone, whose likeness
can be see in the Key West
Sculpture Garden near Mallory
Square, realized that Key West
needed to become a cultural
tourist destination.
.,"They were turning the rest of
Florida into a beach resort,"
Frank said: "We don't have
beaches but we do have art."
Relief officials brought in
artists from all over the world to
reinvent Key West by fashioning
public art pieces, painting appeal-
ing postcards, setting up drama
and choral groups, and even
teaching art classes to communi-
ty members.
"Many of the artists went on
to work all over the world," says
Karen Sadof, director of the Key
West Heritage House Museum.
"These artists' work extended
beyond Key West, Fla."
One of those artists was
Townsend Morgan, world
renowned for his etchings.
Morgan led the art classes in Key
West under the WPA.


The Heritage House displays a
number of Morgan's etchings,
and Frank sells reproductionsand
originals in her Gallery on
Greene in Old Town.
Looking at a black and white
Morgan etching of Key West
from above, Sadof said, "If you
go to the top of La Concha and
look for the church, you can basi-
cally get the same view today."
Sadof, through the Heritage
House, offers a walking tour of
WPA sites and art projects in Key
West for groups of four, made by
prior arrangement, for $25. The
tour takes about two hours and,
includes the Heritage House and
stops at the Key West Aquarium,
which is the first WPA-built
tourist- attraction;' Capt. Tony's
Saloon to view architecture; the
Key West Art Center, which
served as a WPA art gallery and
classroom; and ends at the
Gallery on Greene.
"Part of the tour, just like the
spirit of the WPA era, is to rein-
vent Key West as the tourist
mecca it is today,"' Sadof said.
"Put people to work."
"It's the second most impor-
tant industry in the Keys behind
fishing," Frank said. "Roosevelt
was successful."

Fantasy



fest for the



Upper Keys-


15th annual-
Pimp & Ho Party
is next weekend
L'Attitudes Staff

Islamorada's version of
Fantasy Fest hits Holiday Isle on
Saturday, June 27 with TJ's 15th
annual Pimp & Ho Party.
Raised here in the Keys, TJ
Hayes started throwing the Pimp
& Ho Party in 1994 at his home
in Tavernier. As the number of
attendees grew, he moved the
party to progressively larger ven-
ues like the now-defunct Little
Jamaica, Big Fish, Hog Heaven
and finally to Holiday Isle in
2003.
The party now draws revelers
from all over the state of Florida,
as well'as the United States.
"The reputation for this event


has really grown over the years,"
says Hayes. "I've had people
come from as far as California.
People know that I always have it
the weekend before the Fourth of
July, and they plan their cos-
tumes way in advance."
The highlight of the Pimp &
Ho Party is a costume-contest,
judged by the audience, with the
winner taking home a $1,000
cash prize.
"The girls get dressed up real
sexy, and the guys are totally
pimped out," says Hayes. "It's so
fun to be there and watch
because everyone gets so cre-
ative."
DJ Dave will be spinning
crowd favorites in the VIP-room
upstairs in the quarter deck.
People can pick up their VIP
wrist bands at Hayes' sign busi-
ness, Eye Catchers Signs, or next

There were a lot

Polish painter's passion on exhibit at Louie's


L.'Attitudes Staff

Jerzy Paterek came to Key
West twelve years ago from
New York City, where he'd
founded a Polish-language
newspaper. He made a snap
decision to come south when he
saw an ad on a cold, dreary,
winter day in New York that
said, simply: "Key West is wait-
ing for you."
He began packing his bags


immediately.
On
Monday, June
22, Louie's
Backyard in
Key West is
throwing an
Art, Wine and
Water party
PATEREK with an exhib-
-it of paintings
by Paterek, now a server at
Louie's and a local artist with


paintings on exhibit at the
Grand Caf6 on Duval Street.
Art lovers and food and wine
lovers are invited to the event,
to start at 8 p.m. on the second
floor of Louie's Backyard at
700 Waddell St.
Paterek is originally from
Grudziadzi, Poland. He
describes himself as a poet, and
had one book published in
Poland based on his-experiences
living in a new country while


missing his old one. He became
a painter by accident.
Paterek was visiting a friend
who owned an art gallery one
day when he tried to buy a
painting for his girlfriend. The
friend refused to sell him the
painting he wanted, telling-
Paterek to go buy a canvas and
paints and make one himself.
Paterek did, and enjoyed the
process so much that he hasn't
stopped painting since. *


Paterek says he finds himself
documenting his life's experi-
ences through paint. Instead of
ink and paper, as before when
he published a newspaper, his
stories emerge in colors on the
canvas. Upon completion, each
painting is dated to help create a
visual timeline of the people
and places that naturally wove -
themselves into his path.

at Louie's

PATEREK /From 17 .
Primary colors are Paterek's
favorite palate, as he sees them
as the building blocks of life.
His abstract style skillfully
draws viewers in to experience
his story, or lets them create
one of their own.
"It's all about imagination
and using your mind," Paterek
says. "Showing paintings is
like showing my life to
people."
Monday, June 22 will mark
the third Art, Wine & Water
event at Louie's Backyard.
Featured at this event will be
twenty wines, including a
Verdehlo from Portugal, a
Pinot Noir from Argentina and
a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc.
There will also be selections of
cheese, roasted olives and
tapas that are served nightly at
the wine, martini and tapas bar
at Louie's Upstairs.

some of the most competitive
events in boat racing. The champi-
onship event is at Walt Disney
World in October.
Each race course is a different
distance. To properly compare
results from different events for the
rankings, a formula is used to con-,
vert all times to 500-meter times.
So assuming that a boat reach-
es full speed by the 50-meter mark
and using an average speed for the
remainder of the race, conversion


.of different distances to provide
500-meter times is possible. The
distances used are based on GPS
readings taken by race staff during
course installation.
The Florida Keys Dragon Boat
club operates out of Little Torch
Key and has regular practices on
Sunday evenings. For information
