Henriquez faces grilling


Board decides
Tuesday on who.
stays, who goes
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.ocm

Monroe County School Board
members meet Tuesday to dis-
cuss the fate of top Keys schools
administrators, including what
happens to acting Superintendent
Mike Henriquez.
On.Friday, some board mem-
bers were unhappy with the list of
administrators that Henriquez
wants to hire back -for the next
school year including some
who investigators- say should
have blown the whistle earlier on
finance problems at the top.
""This is a horrible place to be
at," board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said Friday. "I want to
fire, everybody, but I might be
creating more problems by doing,
what I really want to do."
Henriquez made public his list
of contract renewals on
Wednesday. Notably absent from
his list are two long-serving high
school principals including
Key West High's John Welsh,
who blew the whistle on some of
the alleged fraud committed by
Monique Acevedo.,
Both Welsh and Coral Shores
High. Principal Ron Martin are
finishing their last year in a state
program that allowed thenito con-
tinue working and earning a pen-
sion for five years before retiring.
Another top administrator in
the same state retirement incen-
tive program, Business and Fiscal
Services Director Pedro Fraga, is
listed as returning as a contract
employee.
Nearly two dozen other staff
members not cited as being
involved in the finance scandal
are also up for termination, draw-
ing ire from some board members.
"We laid off 23 teachers who
have nothing to do with this for
budgetary reasons, and here we
are having people stay, who in
one way or another, enabled us to
lose a minimum of a half-million
dollars?" board member John
Dick asked.
The board is slated to discuss
these and other personnel issues
during a closed-door meeting
with Henriquez at 10 a.m.
Tuesday at the Key West district
offices.
The personnel decisions will


then be up for a vote during a
public meeting that begins at 2
p.m. It's broadcast on Comcast
Cable Channel 78.
Ethics attorney Latour "L.T."
Lafferty told the board this past
Tuesday that several employees
could be legally defined as
"incompetent," giving the board
cause to take action against them,
including termination.'
But that seems unlikely, based
on- comments by some board
members to support reprimands,
demotions or other actions.
The board was also waiting to
see if Henriquez would take some
of the burden off its shoulders by
recommending some or all of the
administrators involved in the
scandal not be rehired for the
2009-10 school year. ~
On Wednesday, those recom-
mendations were posted on the
district Web site. They included
all the administrators except
Maintenance Director Chuck
Freeman, who announced several
weeks ago that he was retiring.
Investigators say Freeman and
Transportation Director Dori,
Collins used each other's district
credit cards to circumvent spend-
ing limits. Collins is being recom-
mended to stay in her position.
Henriquez also recommends
keeping Finance Director Kathy


Reitzel and credit card administra-
tor Linda Walker. Lafferty said
they likely have the most respon-
sibility for the finance scandal, but
that they also have the best cases
for whistleblower protection.
Career Education Coordinator
Mark Hooper, who investigators
say consistently ttmrned in
expense reports as much as 300-
days late, would return as. a
teacher next year.
Henriquez is one of the admin-
istrators facing disciplinary action
by the board. He said he would
defend his recommendations.
The finance scandal involves
the alleged theft by former Adult
Education Coordinator Monique
Acevedo of more than $180,000
in tuition fees for classes she
oversaw. She is also alleged to
have used her district credit card
to buy tens of thousands of dol-
lars worth of personal items' over
several years.
She was/arrested April 30 and
faces theft and fraud charges,
each carrying a maximum sen-
tence of 30 years in prison, in the
tuition case.
Her husband; Superintendent
Randy Acevedo, was arrested
June 11 for allegedly helping
cover up his wife's actions. He_
was suspended with out pay later
that day by Gov. Charlie Crist.
Both Acevedos have pleaded
not guilty.


Acevedo claims poverty


ACEVEDO / From 1

ed schools superintendent, is
charged with official misconduct
for allegedly trying to cover up
his wife's misdeeds. His attorney
is Catherine Vogel, and he's not
looking to replace her with one
from ,the Public Defender's
Office.
Asked how she's being paid,
Vogel said, "My financial
arrangement with my client is
confidential."
Vogel was the chief prosecu-
tor in the State Attorney's Office
before Dennis Ward defeated her
then-boss, Mark Kohl, in the
November election. Onei of
Ward's first actions was to let
Vogel go.
Mark Wilson, Ward's chief
corruption prosecutor, says his
office has subpoenaed the
Acevedos' bank records.


Before the governor suspend-
ed him, Randy Acevedo was
earning $147,024 annually.
Before she quit her job when her
apparent malfeasance was dis-
covered, his wife was making
$65,573, plus more in hourly pay
for running adult education pro-
'grams.
Moniqu.e Acevedo wasn't in
court on Thursday when Eden
asked to be dropped from her
case and neither was Randy
Acevedo, who was arraigned ear-
lier in the morning. Vogel entered
a not-guilty plea for him.
Jones accepted the plea and
scheduled a pretrial hearing for
Sept. 3, with a .possible trial
scheduled for Oct. 19.
Randy Acevedo was arrested
on June 11 and suspended with-
out pay by Gov. Charlie Crist the
same day.
Monique resigned March 3
and was arrested April 30.

Contracts renewed


By SEAN KINNEY
sklnney@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Community
College board approved an annu-
al round of contract renewals on
Thursday but not without one
board member referring to the
college administration as "top
heavy" and scrutinizing some
promotions and new positions..
"We're getting very adminis-
tratively top-heavy here," trustee
Carey Goodman told her fellow
board members and college
President Jill Landesberg-Boyle.
Still, the board unanimously
approved renewals that include
three executives, 13 administra-
tors and 30 professional staffers.
Twenty full-time faculty members
also had their contracts renewed.
According to the college's Web
site, there are 24 full-time faculty
members and nearly 60 adminis-
trators and support staffers.
Goodman also questioned
why Lydia Estenoz was promot-
ed earlier in the month from
director of public relations and
marketing to executive director
of recruitment and enrollment.
.Her current salary is $71,545
per year. Her former annual pay
was $56,959. -
"I'm wondering that looks
a lot like the same kind of respon-
sibilities that we previously elim-
inated," Goodman said.
The board previously eliminat-
ed a student affairs position and "a


lot of those duties look like
they're coming back under a new
title. How does this newly created
position differ substantially from
what we previously eliminated?"
"We're trying to get to a sys-
tem whereby the enrollment serv-
ices office, financial aid office
and advising office work in more
of a one-stop scenario so that
have a recruitment process that is
seamless from the beginning,"
Landesberg-Boyle said.
"Right now all those people
are reporting directly to me and I
don't have the time to give them
the developmental supervision
they deserve," she said. "I don't
have time to meet with them on a
weekly basis."
Goodman also questioned the
need for a newly created yet
unfilled position -- special assis-
tant to the president.
The college's salary schedule
calls for that employee to make
between $51,000 and $86,000
annually, depending on qualifica-
tions. The new employee would
work in conjunction with
Landesberg-Boyle's executive
director of the president's office,
Debbie Leonard.
"They're going to help to
alleviate some of the day-to-day
issues ... so that I can get out
and fundraise," Landesberg-
Boyle said.


Trial set for July 6


JACOX / From 1

as soon as possible," his attorney
said. "He accepted responsibility
so he can start to put this behind
him and get on with his life."
Hernandez is scheduled for
trial in Miami beginning July 6,
but that could be delayed.
According to an affidavit filed
by FBI Special Agent Patricia J.
Thompson, Jacox joined
Hernandez on two drug runs
from Homestead to Key West.
The trips, on March 12 and
April 11, were staged by federal
officials working undercover. On
both occasions, four kilograms of
cocaine and a kilogram of heroin,
described as "sham" drugs in the'
affidavit, were placed in a tool-
box that Hernandez placed in his
car. The two defendants shared
$5,000 per trip.


Hemandez also is accused of
carrying .a single kilogram of
cocaine from Homestead to Key
West on a solo trip Feb. 24 while
in his jailer's uniform. For that,
he received $1,500.
For the two later trips,
Hemandez reportedly told the
undercover officer working as
drug trafficker that he needed
Jacox for "armed counter-sur-
veillance to make sure the deliv-
ery went smoothly."
Before the April 11 trip, Jacox
discussed methods of law-
enforcement surveillance with
the supposed drug dealer, accord-
ing to the complaint.
Jacox, a longtime Monroe
County resident, started working
from the FWC's Marathon office
in September 2006. Hernandez
worked for the Sheriff's Office
since 2000. Both were fired fol-
lowing their arrests.

The owners of Gilbert's
Resort promote the "quiet, old-
Keys flavor" of the complex on
Jewfish Creek in Key Largo -
but now suffer from too much
quiet.
The emergency closure of
northbound U.S. 1 above Jewfish
Creek battered the flow of busi-
ness to the 38-room motel and
restaurant last weekend, said
Karia Schaupp.
"After, they closed the road,
last weekend's business dropped
to about a third of what we usual-
ly have," said Schaupp, who has
run Gilbert's with her husband
Reinhard for a decade.
"It's way below normal for_
this time of year," she said. "This
really isn't helping."
After the northbound closure
on the 18-Mile Stretch of U.S. 1
caused a massive traffic jam for
weekend visitors heading home
June 21, the state Department of
Transportation mandated the road
be opened from 10 a.m..to mid-
night this Sunday.
Access to Gilbert's and its
Marley's Bayside Grille remain
open during the road closure -
but getting there from Key Largo
requires some navigation.
If U.S. 1 is closed, all north-
bound traffic is directed onto-
Card Sound Road.
People trying to reach
Gilbert's from Key Largo should
turn left on Reef Drive the
small road between the Circle K
store at mile marker 106.5 and
the Key Largo fire station.

going to Gilbert's count as local

the sign and head north over the
Jewfish Creek Bridge to the exit

The "Road Closed" sign

to come sit on the beach and

too many places left where you
.can do that." I -
She noted that all facilities at
Gilbert's will remain in full oper-
ation through the construction
period. "We'll have live music on
the weekends like always."
The northbound lanes closed
June 18 so Granite Construction
can repair an underground road
divider that failed along the
reconstructed U.S. 1.
But the flow of traffic was
underestimated, leading to the

Keys Opinion


Time for a gut check

for the School Board
Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place.
That's exactly the position facing the Monroe County School
Board this coming Tuesday when it meets to accept or reject
acting Superintendent Mike Henriquez's list of administrators
to rehire.
Absent from the list Key West High Principal John Welsh
and Coral Shores Principal Ron Martin. But key players named
in the board's forensic audit of the district's finances and its
finance scandal could be welcomed back. -
All this has stirred up a hornet's nest, especially in Key West,
where virtually everyone knows someone who works for the
School District. And too often, family loyalties shape responses
instead of outrage over allegations of massive theft and fraud.
Labor attorney L.T. Lafferty advised the School Board that it
has three options in handling personnel matters for those
involved:
Fire for cause. -
+ Accept the acting superintendent's recommendations and
renew contracts.
Accept them back, with a written reprimand.
That last punishment seemed to agree with board member
-Debra Walker, especially after revealing she'd gone through.
some personnel files and found little paper trail.
"I'm reluctant to get involved in personnel matters ," she said
at this past Tuesday's School Board meeting, "especially when
there's no written anything in their files about not following
procedures.: .
That brought a flurry of reaction, with some board members
clearly upset if all that happens is a slap on the hand.
"When all is said and done, [fraud and theft} will cost:this
district $1 million," board member John Dick said.'Taking no
action, he cautioned, is "very wrong, very, very wrong."
Duncan Mathewson, frequently a swing vote on issues divid-
ing the board, weighed in with this: "What's necessary to
regain the public trust? The policies are all written and they've
been broken and bent over a number of years; maybe a public
.reprimand doesn't go far enough?"
Ironically, the board was powerless to act Tuesday until it got
the acting superintendent's recommendations. They got that list
on Thursday,. which only added more public pressure on the
board to act.
We're not convinced, yet, they have the political will to gut
through this extremely wrenching ordeal. :
. The message .they send with their actions will speak volumes
about how serious this board is about changing culture at the
top, described as a "culture of misuse." .
The public needs to monitor closely what happens this Tuesday
and hold accountable those responsible including the board.
The 2 p.m. meeting at the district's headquarters in Key West
will be broadcast on Comcast Channel 78.

Government's proven by its past that health care will fail


EDITOR:"
.President Obama proposes that the federal
government expand its role in providing health
insurance to residents of the United States. I rec-
ognize that providing health insurance to United
States citizens at a reasonable cost is a matter of
concern.
I might be convinced to support a wider feder-
al role in providing health insurance if.I. could
.find any major federal program that performs
well, but the government's proven performance
leads me to believe that an expanded federal role
would be a disaster.
Consider Social Security, Medicare, Amtrak
and the Postal Service. All would be classified as
bankrupt if held to the same accounting standards
that apply to private industry. Also consider fed-
eral mandates, such as adding ethanol to gasoline.
This mandate produced unintended consequences
by turning food crops into raw material for mak-
ing ethanol, thereby increasing the cost of food,
all in the name of creating a product that requires
more energy to produce than it yields.
And when has the actual cost of a new federal
program ever come close to the costs projected
when the program was authorized? Think about


SMedicare, Everglades restoration, etc.
I, must admit that there are two areas where
the federal government excels: Using earmarks to
buy votes while wasting money on a stupendous
scale, and turning a blind eye toward corruption
in federal programs. These are not positive
accomplishments. At least there was a time when
we could count on the government in time of
war, but since 1945 the only enemy we have
actually defeated was Granada, while we have
suffered defeat at the hands of such superpowers
as Lebanon and Somalia.
Until our elected representatives can demon-
strate that existing federal programs are effective
and efficient, there should be no further expan-
sion of the role of the federal'government in
health care or in any other area.
When will voters insist that our elected repre-
sentatives clean up the messes that they have
already created before they proceed to create big-
ger and better messes? If voters don't wake up
now, this president and this Congress will surely
turn the American dream into the American
nightmare.

Those who have insurance appreciate it


EDITOR: I
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and
senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez
are employed by the people of Florida.
But as our employees, they have some-
thing many of us their employers
lack: Health insurance.
For the first time in decades, there
is a serious effort to reform our broken
health-care system in which insurance
companies, not doctors, determine
which procedures patients can have -
a system in which people who have
insurance are often denied coverage,
have to pay more and more for premi-
ums, and have to ration their own care
because they.may not be able to afford
all the medications they need.
In a fragile economy, in which
,someone with insurance faces the
threat of job loss and, with it, loss of
health insurance, everyone is at risk.
Medicare is a government plan.
Veterans also have a public plan.
Most of the people in those plans
.seem pretty happy to have coverage.
According to a recent poll, 75 per-
cent of Americans support a public
plan. For people who have private
insurance and like it, the reform effort
would enable them to keep their plan
and their doctor. For those who don't.


have private insurance or who can't get
it because of cost, pre-existing condi-
tions or its lack of availability (a big
problem in the Keys), a public plan
offers real hope.
Do Ros-Lehtinern, Nelson and
Martinez support a public plan like
the majority of Americans do? Call
their offices and find out.
If you support one, let them know
that you do. And tell them that it
should be a true public plan devoid of
some.of the newest gimmicks the
insurance companies are trying to foist
on us such as triggers and co-ops.
Nothing short of a national public
plan has a hope of delivering true
health-care reform and giving the tax-
payers' something that our elected rep-
resentatives take for granted and that
we pay for: Quality, affordable health
.insurance.
Call Ros-Lehtinen at (202) 225-
, 3931. Call Nelson at (202) 224-5274.
And even though he' is leaving office,
call Martinez at (202) 224-3041. It
would be a nice legacy for him to
leave: Voting for a measure that helps
ordinary people instead of the insur-
ance companies and lobbyists.

free and open to all children ages
prekindergarten through sixth grade.
The children in the program
learned all about making good choic-


es like helping others and sharing, all
the while "exploring" the Australian
outback on the Boomerang Express.
Kudos to the members and volun-

together an awesome program filled,
with messages, singing and dancing,
crafts and snacks. My children had a
great time.

I would like to publicly thank all
of the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real
Estate agents,.their affiliates and
business partners for their generosity.
Due to the generosity of the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation, my son Manuel Lozano
was able to be hospitalized in order
to undergo a much-needed and long-
overdue dental procedure.
The foundation was created in


2003 and is dedicated to helping
Keys residents who have critical -
needs and can prove'that they cannot
resolve them without outside help. If
you feel that you or someone in your

erosity, I urge you to visit or call one
of their real estate offices, located
from Key Largo to Key West.
God bless.

The letter writer says 109th Street, shown here looking toward U.S. 1, is dangerous for
pedestrians.

Here's another place that needs a stop light


think is music. There is nowhere to walk
but in the 'street.
There are small children playing, there
are several handicapped folks, including a
woman in a wheelchair. She uses this street
on a daily basis, as do the rest of us that live
there. I was told that speed bumps are not
allowed. The few signs posted go unread or
ignored. The vendors for places like
Walgreens, Office Depot and other mer-
chants race down 109th without regard for
the residents that live .and work in this hrea.

I agree, the safety of the' citizens should
be uppermost in everyone's mind. My fami-

We feej a traffic light is essential. As avid
bicycle riders, there is a need for traffic
devices in many places in Marathon, in partic-
ular the neighborhood behind Office Depot.
The 109th Street bayside neighborhood
is a residential area that has heavy traffic.
Industrial trucks (i.e. fuel tankers) and
school buses drop off small children. This
in and of itself creates an unsafe combina-
tion. Add to that the number of vehicles that
regularly speed through this area, most of
them with the loud-thumping stuff they

By RYAN. McCARTHY

Saying there's basically
nowhere else to put it, the
Marathon City Council overrode
its own Planning Commission
on Tuesday and approved plans
to buiild a sewer treatment plant
along U.S. 1 adjacent to the
Marathon Community Park.
It was around this time last
year that the council finally


Keynoter


Snead spoke out against the U.S.
1 location, which is in front of
the Guidance Clinic of the
Middle Keys, but said she's
changed her mind after multiple
meetings.
"The bottom line is it is the -
only place that it would go. I
don't think it's the best place to
put it, but we have to move for-
ward at this point," Snead said.
At its last meeting, the city
Planning Commission voted 4-1
against granting the city a condi-
tional use for the plant, citing
concerns with its location. Also
not in favor of the location is the.
American Legion, which bor-
ders. the plant site to the east.
Joe Goetz, a retired school-
teacher and member of the
Legion's executive board, called
the plant a "monstrosity."
"We feel this is being shoved
down our throat with no real
opportunity to discuss it. I can't
imagine why you would want to
put a sewage treatmentplant on
U.S. 1 in this town and still [try
to] attract tourists.,This is totally
the opposite of what we've been
trying to create," he said.
Planning Director George
Garrett told the council a vegeta-
tive buffer is planned on all four
sides of the plant to block it from
view.

Earthmark deadline
The city may be forced to take
a piece of Earthmark Companies'
-Knights Key property by eminent
domain, since back taxes and
liens have once again prevented
the developer from conveying the
land to the city for a small sewer
plant as it's promised.
Earthmark employee Alex
Pockrus assured the council on
June 9 that title to the .property
would be transferred within two
weeks. He told the council the
money to pay the back taxes and
liens is being held in .escrow.
Tuesday, the council essential-
ly granted Earthmark another
three-week extension. But it also
called for an appraisal of the land
to begin eminent domain pro-
ceedings. An appraisal is neces-
sary to begin the process.
Earthmark's development
agreement allows for redevelop-
ment of the 199 current RV
spaces into one-, two- and three-
bedroom luxury condo-hotel
units, along with workforce hous-
ing units for resort employees.
But the company never broke
ground due to the economy.

City says no

Council wants
deadline that's
farther out
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon Mayor Mike
Cinque stayed out of a vote on a
proposed agreement for city
package plant owners Tuesday -
but it turns out his vote wasn't
even necessary.
The Florida Commission on
Ethics advised Cinque, one of 69
owners of such small sewer
plants in Marathon, not to vote on
a proposed deal with the state
Department of Environmental
Protection meant to give those
owners a reprieve from the state-
mandated July 1, 2010, deadline
to meet advanced sewage treat-
ment standards..
The council voted unanimous-
ly to reject the agreement in
Cinque's absence.
Cinque spoke out against the
agreement at the June 9 council
meeting before attempting to
recuse himself from the final
vote.. But Councilman Dick
Ramsay said he felt the council
should vote as a whole dn the
issue.
That led the council to delay
the item until Tuesday so. Cinque
could seek the opinion of the
Ethics Commission, which
advised him against voting.
Cinque said he feels it's unfair
the agreement requires package
plant owners to hook up to cen-
tral sewers within 30 days of
them becoming available, while
residents have- a 360-day win-
dow.
The fact that Marathon sewers
will be online long before most
other Keys sewer systems, he

The council directed staff to
request DEP to change the "drop
dead" deadline from 2012 to
2013 to hook all package plant
owners into the sewer system. A
360-day window like all other
properties are afforded would
then give the city until 2014 to
accomplish the goal.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
told the Keynoter changing, the
dates is a largely precautionary
measure.
"We've cushioned that, of
course, because we think we'll
have it done by 2011 at the lat-
est," he said.

FKAA finalizes purchase


It'll take over
the Key Haven
. sewer system
Keynoter Staff

After a year of waiting, Key
Haven residents will have a new
sewer authority, but no rate
increases.
The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority board, in a unanimous
vote Thursday, approved a con-
tract to purchase the Lower Keys
subdivision's 1960s-era sewer
system from the Lujan family,
which developed Key Haven.
The final price of $2.5 million
is the same discussed last year,
when the Lujans approached the
Aqueduct Authority about a pos-
sible sale.
Like everywhere. else in the
Keys, Key Haven,, whose sewer
plant serves approximately 500
homes on the north side of Stock
Island, faces a 2010 deadline to
meet the state's advanced sewage
treatment standards'.
Kerry Shelby, the Aqueduct
Authority's deputy director, said



WE BUY
CARS


Key Haven sewer rates will
remain the same and still cover
the $2.5 million acquisition cost.
A decision on how to most
effectively meet the tougher state
standards has not yet been final-
ized, he said earlier in the week,
although ,the Aqueduct Authority
is bidding on privatizing the U.S.
Navy's sewer system on Boca
Chica and is building a Rockland
Key plant. Sewage from Key
Haven may be piped to another
plant at a lower cost to Key
Haven residents than upgrading
the old plant, he said.
Also, at Thursday's Aqueduct
Authority board meeting, trustees
got their first look at a 2009-10


hold-the-line budget, which for
the first time in three years
includes no rate hike.
But there will be a cost-of-liv-
ing index applied on all ratepay-
ers in May 2010. Based on the
current Consumer Price Index,
that would raise water fees by
2.27 percent.
*The proposed budget has no
salary increases scheduled for
2009-10, and funds 11 fewer
positions compared to the current
budget. The smaller payroll will
save in excess of $500,000 in
2009-10.
The cuts were accomplished
without layoffs, Shelby said, by
downsizing vacant positions or
moving people into new jobs when
their old ones were eliminated.

Light fight rages on


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A recent Sunday night spent
watching drivers navigate the
dangerous intersection of U.S 1
and Aviation Boulevard only reit-
erated Marathon City
Councilwoman Ginger Snead's
desire for a traffic light there.
Snead took Ranch House
Motel owner Diana Jones up on
her invitation to view traffic from
Jones' 72nd Street and U.S. 1
location and was not encour-
aged by what she saw.
Snead described a scene in
which three cars attempting left
turns at the same time one
onto U.S. 1 from Aviation, anoth-
er onto U.S. 1 from 72nd and
another from U.S. 1 north onto
Aviation clogged the intersec-
tion, the drivers remaining idle
out of fear of causing an accident..
"They sat like that for two and
a half minutes before someone
decided to do something," Snead
said at Tuesday's regular City
-Council meeting.
"I have to cross every day, and
it's dangerous as hell," resident
Richard Elgersma told the coun-
cil. "I've almost been hit myself.
It's like committing suicide going
across there."
Their observations notwith-
standing, the state Department of


Transportation remains firm in its
belief that no traffic light is need-
ed at the intersection, which has
been the -site of several serious
traffic accidents over the years.
For its meeting Tuesday, the
City Council expected a DOT
representative to show up and
justify the argument against a
light. No one did, so that's been
rescheduled until July 13. Several
residents still turned out to speak
in favor of a traffic light.
"I fought for a light for eight
years, they said we don't need it.
I wouldn't settle for the turn; get
the light as soon as we can," res-
ident Wendy Bonilla said.
A Jacobs Engineering Group
study done for the city indicates
the traffic volume doesn't meet
DOT criteria for a light. Options
Jacobs proposed:
Not allowing left turns from
southbound U.S. 1 into 72nd
Street, which is on the oceanside
across from the Aviation intersec-
tion, where the Ranch House is,
and not allowing left turns from
Aviation into the northbound
U.S. 1 lane.
Widening Aviation to
include a left-turn lane, possibly
with a traffic light. This would
also ban that left turn onto 72nd
Street from southbound U.S. 1.

If not, Worthington said
Tuesday night, he'll make it to

when he can.
Burnett started the briefings in
June 2008, in which staff and the
council go over the entire agenda
the morning of each City Council

efficient than meeting with each
council member individually.

apparently miffed at the lack of
attendance of late by Worthington
and Vice Mayor Don Vasil,
brought the meetings up for dis-
cussion at Tuesday's council
meeting. Worthington's missed
the last three morning briefings
- he said for work reasons -
while Vasil hasn't attended for
months.
Snead said the staff briefings
are invaluable, allowing her a
forum to ask questions and get
informed prior to taking a vote
later in the evening.
Snead, who owns a rehabilita-
tion and fitness business in
Marathon, said she understands
Worthington's concerns about
work and would be willing to
change the time. But she was
adamant it's important to attend.
"We have to make it where
these seats up here aren't just
available to retired people or the
independently wealthy. These
meetings interfere with being
able to work a five-day-a-week
job," Worthington said.
"If our manager meets with
everyone individually ... who's to
say what's going on behind
closed doors," she said.
The morning sessions sched-
uled for the entire council, con-
sidered workshops, are covered
under the Sunshine Law govern-
ing open government.
"One -of the reasons why I
don't go is because of what coun-
cil member Snead just said about
dirty laundry. Too much comes
out of that meeting quasi-already
decided," Vasil said. "I want
things discussed out in the open,
not in some staff meeting where
nobody shows up."
The council argued at length
over 'the validity of the meetings,
but the discussion became heated
when Mayor Mike Cinque
motioned to make attendance
mandatory. Vasil quickly shot him
down, saying doing so is illegal.
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
agreed.
"You can't do that unless you
amend the charter. There are con-
ditions under which a council
member can be removed. One is
missing three consecutive council
meetings without an excuse.
Those sessions are workshops,"
Morales said.
In the end, Burnett decided to
continue holding the workshops.
"They were trying to talk about
getting everyone's participation,
but the direction was that three of
them liked them,' he said.

The Key West City Com-'
iitssion on Wednesday gave the

along with hotelier rJoeMeisel, a'
rave review of its proposed $32
million development proposal for-
a marina and park at the Truman'
Waterfront.
Meisel and Spottswood
Marina Management Co., incor-
porated specifically to bid on the
project, want to develop a $12
million .mega-yacht marina along
with a $20 million upland "desti-
nation park" complete with an
interactive water feature, a pool,
restaurant and a 5,000-seat-
amphitheater.
The proposed name: The
Harry S. Truman Presidential
Park and Marina.
"I've always referred to that as
our Central Park," said Com-
missioner Bill Verge, whose dis-
trict includes the property. "It's a
getaway kind of place. The suc-
cessful cities have successful
waterfronts," he said, naming
Baltimore, Boston and San Diego.
"This is a win-win project for
all of us," Robert Spottswood said'

Crist vetoes insurance bill


FIRM: Bill would
have increased rates
in the Florida Keys
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Local organizers of Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe
(FIRM) are celebrating Gov.
Charlie Crist's announced veto
of a bill that would have allowed
big insurance companies to jack
up their rates, and likely would
have caused property owners to
run back to Citizens Property
Insurance Co. for affordable
coverage.
But some property owners in
the Keys might not be as joyful.
Immediately after the announce-
ment of the veto, State Farm-
announced that it plans to leave
Florida for good. As of September
of 2008, State Farm had 116 poli-
cies in Monroe County.
Colleen Repetto, the executive
director of FIRM, says she first
read the bill in May, and that
FIRM has been lobbying the gov-
ernor to veto it ever since.
"It would have de-regulated
insurance," she says, by allowing
a few large insurers like State
Farm to raise their rates without
going through the state Office of


Insurance Regulation and through
its commissioner, Kevin McCarty.
"It's in my opinion a slap in the
face to him," says Repetto -of the
bill's provision for companies to
do an end-run around the commis-
sioner. "We feel strongly that
Commissioner McCarty has done
a wonderful job for all Floridians."
Over the last few weeks,
FIRM sent out blast e-mails to
approximately 5,000 property
owners in the Keys. In the e-
mails, FIRM urged property
owners to call and send faxes to
Crist to urge him to veto House
Bill 1171, called the "Consumer
Choice" bill. She estimates that
the governor's office received
hundreds of phone calls and faxes
from Monroe County.
In the June 24 letter the gover-
nor sent announcing the veto, he
referenced the state's successful
efforts to limit insurance premiu-
ums for homeowners statewide.
"Since the passage of House
Bill 1A in January 2007, which
yielded rate decreases on average
of 15.9 percent statewide, rates
have remained relatively stable
for most homeowners," the gov-
ernor wrote. "This bill will
reverse that trend by exempting
certain insurers froth the determi-
nation that their rates are exces-


sive by the Office of Insurance
Regulation. This will likely result
in significant and unpredictable
rate increases..."
"We're very, very happy that
he's done what he's done," says
Repetto of the announcement of
the veto, posted on FIRM's web
site at www.fairinsurance
ratesinmonroe.com.
The governor's letter also ref-
erences the state's efforts to
decrease the number of home-
owners insured by Citizens, the
quasi-governmental company
.originally intended to serve as an
insurer of last resort.
"House Bill 1171 will disrupt
the effort to build an increasingly
competitive insurance market-
place 'and treat. certain insurers
differently than emerging Florida
domestic companies."
There are now 26,550 Citizens
insurance' policies in Monroe
County. According to a spokesman
for Citizens, about half of the
insurance policies in the Florida
Keys are Citizens policies, with the
other half held by private insurers.
, Repetto says FIRM wasn't
able to do any kind of impact
study of HB 1171, but that it
appeared to her that the bill
would have reversed the "depop-
ulation" of Citizens that the state
had been working to achieve.

Bennett takes to the air to rescue unwanted animals


By LARRY KAHN
lkahn@keynoter.com

Jeff Bennett's a pilot with a
mission literally.
"One of the biggest things we
need to get out there is not only
the need for the pilots, but also
the need for spay and neuter" of
pets, the Big Pine Key man says.
It might sound like an odd
partnering pilots and pet steril-
ization but not as odd as you
might think.
Bennett, 50, flies volunteer
rescue missions for Pilots N
Paws, a Landrum, S.C., nonprofit
group that works throughout the
country to move unwanted pets to
where they're wanted. He says
there are scores of such animals
out there, and their problems
could have been prevented
through effective spay and neuter
programs.
"As an example, we were try-
ing to get a dog that was abused
in Greenville, S.C., we were try-
ing to get him to Tampa. They got
the dog to Bainbridge, Ga.," and
then Bennett flew to Bainbridge,
picked up the dog .and airlifted it
to its new home in Tampa.
Such coordination cuts down
on travel time for the animals, and
the number of volunteers needed
to get them from state to state.
"There was one transport
someone told me about from
Arkansas to Pennsylvania. It took
27 legs," all of them via car, not
plane. That means the animal was
handed off more than two dozen
times taken out of one car that
drove some distance, dropped off
to another volunteer that drove
some distance, and so on.
"What I carl do with my plane,
I can knock out five or six legs,"
he says.
His plane is a Cirrus SR 22
single-engine "high perform-
ance"' aircraft kept at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
Here's how Bennett spent his
day on March 6:
He picked up a Chinese
Crested dog in Key West and
-flew to Tampa to drop it off and
pick up Lola the pug. Then he
flew to Gainesville and picked up
two Maltese. Then he flew back
to Tampa to drop off one Maltese,
flew to Boca Raton to drop off


w -t

The only reason this border collie (top) is alive
is that the freezer at the Georgia kill shelter
where he was staying was full, and they didn't
have room for his body. Jeff Bennett flew him
to his new home, a Vero Beach border collie
rescue mission, after another pilot dropped
him off at Perry-Foley Airport near Tallahassee.
Bennett flew Sunny (left), a shepard mix, from
Marathon to Tallahassee, where another pilot
picked him up for his final destination, a new
home in Philadelphia. That transport
took four pilots to complete.

the other one, then returned to
Marathon to deliver Lola the pug
to her new family.
He estimates that since he
joined Pilots N Paws in October,
he's flown 25 times, helping to
save 57 animals' lives.
It's not only dogs that have
benefited from his services. "I've
flown snakes, lizards, chickens. A
potbelly pig, I flew it from Key
West to Gainesville," he says.
Bennett who owns five res-
cued animals, three dogs and two
eats says he's not sure how he
found about Pilots N Paws. It
wasn't on the Internet, though,
although that's where many of
the flights are planned.
"I check the Web board. I also
have a lot of people who call
me," he says.


Bennett has the time.
"Up until a few weeks ago, I
was retired. I had to take back
one of my companies," which
distributes dive equipment.
But that's not going to slow
him down with Pilots N Paws.
"Next week, I'm trying to coordi-
nate about four different trans-
ports," Bennett says that
include 22 puppies.
Puppies, by the way, can be
the mostly troublesome despite
their cuteness. People feed them
before the flights and, well, when
a pup's gotta go, a pup's gotta go.
Bennett says the three states
with the worst problems when it
comes to too many unwanted ani-
mals are Alabama, Georgia and
South Carolina.
"I'm thinking about going tip


to Alabama for a couple of
weeks. Some of these shelters are
underfunded, overcrowded." So
he wants to go and help move out
some of the .animals where
they're wanted, such as to private
homes or pet sanctuaries.
"We're lucky to have him,"
says Patty Closson of
Montgomery, Ala.
Earlier this month, she worked
with Bennett and others to move
three dogs from Montgomery to
Orlando via Tallahassee. It was
Bennett who flew to Tallahassee
for the final leg to drop off the
dogs in Central Florida.

This report was supplemented
with material from the
Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser.

The fireworks display was cut out of the village
budget last year, and for the first time in the history
of Islamorada, there were no fireworks at Founders
Park. Four residents decided they didn't want that to
see that happen again.
Kelli Brower, Mike Forster, Skip Bradeen and
Holly Stewart formed the Spirit of Islamorada

fireworks last November. They were, able to raise the
$15.000 needed, and are asking the community to
help pitch in for next year.
The Spirit of Islamorada Committee has also
worked with the Islamorada Parks and Recreation
Department to organize events in the park from 5-9

Middle Keys youngsters
braved the elements Wednesday
for the four annual Cities of Key
Colony Beach and Marathon
Kids Fishing Derby.
"It was a little wets, cold and

silver kings
David Dalu of"Charleston,
S.C., won the grand champion
award at the prestigious Gold
Cup Invitational Tarpon
Tournament held June 15 to
19 in Islamorada.
Dalu, fishing with Capt.
Scott' Collins of Marathon,
built a lead on the second of
five fishing days off
Islamorada, subsequently_
holding off top tarpon tourna-
ment competitors Julian
Robertson and Carlos Duncan
* to secure the win.
Dalu scored with four
weight fish, 22 releases the
most releases of the tourna-
ment. and 6,660 total
points.
Tournament rules mandated
that release,fish must measure
a minimum of 48 inches long
and weight fish must weigh at
least 70 pounds.
New Zealand's Julian
Robertson took second place
with 10 releases and four
weight fish, including the
tournament's largest tarpon,
which weighed in at 130.7
pounds. He was guided by
Capt. Tad Burke of Tavernier.
Carlos Duncan of Houston,
Texas, took third place with
seven releases and the tourna-
ment limit of five weight fish.
Duncan fished with Capt. Rob
Fordyce of Homestead.
Duncan won the Doni
Hawley Invitational Tarpon
Tournament off Islamorada
earlier this month, and Dalu
won the 23-pound tippett divi-
sion of that contest, also fish-
ing with Collins.
The tournament's 25

tion gives notice of its in-

ment of Environmental

ministrative hearing is
filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, within
fourteen days of receipt
of notice. The procedures
for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.

A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's pro-
posed permitting deci-
sion may petition for an,
administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain
the information set forth
-below and must be filed

ministrative hearing. The
request must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the
Office of General Coun-
sel before the end of the
time period forfilinga pe-
tition for an administra-
tive hearing.

Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those en-
titled to written notice un-
der Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be
filed within fourteen days
of publication of the no-
tice or within fourteen
days of receipt of the writ-
ten notice, whichever oc-
curs first. Under Section
120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, any

a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address
indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a pe-
tition within fourteen days
of receipt of notice shall
constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request
an administrative deter-
mination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes.
Any subsequent inter-
vention (in a proceeding

tion of the presiding offi-
cer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance
with Rule 28-106.205,

the material facts on
which the Department's

and telephone number of
each petitioner; the
name, address, and tele-
phone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if
any; the Department per-
mit identification number
and the county in which
the subject matter or ac-
tivity is located;

(b) A statement of how
and when each petitioner

partment action;

(c) A statement of how

stantial interests are af-
fected by the Department

as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and

(g) A statement of the re-
lief sought by the petition-
er, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner
wants the Department to
take.

Because the administra-
tive hearing process is
designed to formulate fi-
nal agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means
that the Department's fi-
nal action may be differ-
ent from the position tak-
en by it in this 'notice. Per-
sons whose substantial
interests will be affected
by any such final decision
of the Department have
the right to petition to be-
come a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set
forth above.

120.573, Florida
Statutes, is not available

the Office of General
Counsel of the Depart-

Under Rule
62-110.106(4), Florida
Administrative Code, a
person may request en-
largement of the time for
filing a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing. The
request must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the
Office of General Coun-
sel before the end of the
time period for filing a pe-
tition for an administra-
tive hearing.

Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those en-
titled to written notice un-
der section 120.60 (3),
Florida Statutes, must be
filed within fourteen days
of publication of the no-
tice or within fourteen
days of receipt of the writ-
ten notice, whichever oc-
curs first. Under Section
120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, any
person who has asked
the Department for notice
of agency action may file
a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address
-indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a pe-
tition or request for en-
largement of time within
fourteen days of receipt
of notice shall constitute
a waiver of that person's
right to request an admin-
istrative determination
(hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated
by another party) will be
only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Admin-
istrative Code.

and telephone number of
each petitioner; the
name, address, and tele-

(b) A statement of how
and when each petitioner
received notice of the De-
partment action;

(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are af-
fected by the Department
action;

(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material
fact. If there are none, the

(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or
modification of the De-

(f) A concise statement of

as-well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and

(g) A statement of the re-
lief sought by the petition-
er, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner
wants the Department to
take.

Because the administra-
tive hearing process is
designed to formulate fi-
nal agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means
that the Department's fi-
nal action may be differ-
ent from the position tak-
en by it in this notice. Per-
sons whose substantial
interests will be affected
by any such final decision
of the Department have
the right to petition to be-
come a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set
forth above.

Mediation under Section
120.573, Florida
Statutes, is not available
