Spill summit convenes


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Three Florida Keys resi-
dents will join another dozen
experts Monday at a meeting
called by U.S. Rep. Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen to address ongo-
ing concerns about the Gulf of
Mexico oil spill and possible
impacts on South Florida.
"I'm mostly going to lis-
ten, and offer our help if
needed," said Upper Keys


Three experts from the Keys to attend
session called by congresswoman


resident Leda Dunmire, a
senior associate with the Pew
Trust's Ending Overfishing
in the Southeast project.
The closed meeting is at
the University of Miami's
Rosenstiel School of Marine
and Atmospheric Science in
Miami.
Karl Lessard of the
Florida Keys Commercial


Fishermen's Association and
Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary Shper-
intendent Sean Morton also
are expected to attend, along
with U.S. Coast Guard offi-
cers, oceanographers, con-
servationists, tourism offi-
cials and a British Petroleum
representative.
Dunmire said she may


remind Ros-Lehtinen that the
Coastal Jobs Creation Act, a
bill pending in Congress to
help displaced fishermen,
could be useful to help those
affected by the oil spill.
Ros-Lehtinen is a co-
sponsor of legislation to
repeal the cap on oil compa-
nies' liability for economic
damages in the event of a
spill. The cap is $75 million.
Experts estimate total costs

Census sending more counters


Some say numbers
being touted are
wrong, inflated
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's safe to say U.S.
Census B.ureau officials and
Monroe County Commis-
sioner Heather Carruthers
disagree on just how many


Keys residents have been
counted for the 2010 tally.
Census officials have been
touting return rates as high as
97.5 percent in the Keys,
which raised Carruthers' -
and others' - suspicion. She
put out a call on Thursday
asking those not counted to
contact her office.
That 97.5 percent figure
appears to be, inflated.
"We have an amazing
number of people calling


saying they "haven't been
counted. Some say their
whole neighborhood; some
say [a census, taker] left a
note on their door and never
came back," Carruthers said.
She'd heard enough, and
asked Marilyn Stephens,
Census Bureau partnership
specialist for South Florida,
to address the County
Commission this Wednesday
in Key Largo.
"Maybe this will light a


fire under them and they'll
go back out and count some
of these," Carruthers said.
Similarly high return
rates - 87 percent county-
wide and 99 percent -in Key
West - were reported in
April, but it was later deter-
mined that the Census
Bureau was pulling those
numbers from two select
groups of people: Military

Meanwhile, members of

pleas in the federal case, in
which the inmates are
accused of recruiting family

bogus income tax returns

Still far away


From Oil, 1A

from the Deepwater
Slorizon spill could range
from $2 billion to $14 bil-
lion or higher, depending
on when the leaking well
is closed and where the oil
washes ashore.
Oil from the pipeline
that ruptured April 22 con-
tinues to spread and stain
the northern Gulf of
Mexico, now nearly four
weeks after the Deepwater
Horizon drilling rig sank.
In the Keys, officials
can do little but watch the
worrisome spectacle and
assure visitors' that no
signs of oil have been
identified anywhere close
to the Keys. It remains
about 450 miles away.
No effects are believed
to be imminent, but it's still
possible in the coming
weeks if the spill reaches the
Loop Current, which could
bring the oil down along
Florida's west coast, experts
said at Tuesday's special
meeting of the Monroe
County Commission.


Friday's daily statement
on the oil spill issued by
the state Department of
Environmental Protection
says, "Currently, there are
no impacts to Florida's
more than 1,260 miles of
coastline and 825 miles of
sandy beaches. Florida's
shores are clear and open
for business."
Winds and currents are
expected to' "keep the
[spill] plume away from
the Florida coast for at
least the next 72 hours....
The Loop Current is far
south of the oil and there is
no imminent threat that the
oil will be picked up by the
loop current. However,
Florida continues to make
preparations to safeguard
the state's shoreline."
On Friday, the Center
for Biological Diversity a
filed formal notice to sue
the U.S. Department of the
Interior for "ignoring
marine-mammal protec-
tion laws when approving
offshore drilling opera-
tions in the Gulf of
Mexico."


Three cop pleas


From Taxes, 1A

In exchange, prosecutors
agreed to recommend prison
time on the low end of the
sentencing guidelines.
The evidence included
a taped phone conversa-
tion from the Monroe
County Detention Center
on Stock Island, when
Shawn Clarke reportedly
declared, "I'm through
with the street crime. I'm
strictly white collar from
now on. I love the 1RS." .
In the other case, prose-
cutors with the U.S.
Attorney's Office say in
documents that Danilo
Suarez, 49, recruited his
daughter Sandra ("Chuli")
Suarez, 25, sister 'Belkis
("Becky") Mendez, 54,
and brother Gilbert Suarez,
47, to receive the Internal
Revenue Service refund
checks and cash them in
the operation that ran from
February 2006 to March
2007.
All live in Key West
except for Gilbert Suarez,
a former Key West director
of public works who lives


n i DeLand Gilbert z


pleaded guilty in 2006 to
stealing more than
$200,000 in quarters from
Key West parking meters,
and received probation.
"Once the [income tax]
checks were cashed, the
co-defendants gave the
cash to inmate Danilo
Suarez, .who divided the,
proceeds between himself,
the co-defendants and the
complicit inmates," prose-
cutors said.
They all were indicted
in March.
In one of the more
recent court filings, an
attorney for Mendez peti-
tioned the court for $1.600
to pay an expert to exam-
ine the prosecution's evi-
dence.
Danilo Suarez is now at
the Federal Detention
Center in Miami in antici-
pation of the income-tax
case.
All the Suarez family
defendants are charged
with one count of conspir-
acy to defraud the govern-
ment, and multiple counts
of filing false claims.

Planning members ousted


Halioua, Shaffer
are odd men out
in reorganization

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It turns out that Marathon
Planning Commissioners
Larry Shaffer and Claude
Halioua had good reason to
be concerned about their
positions on the board.
City Attorney John Herin
told the City Council
Tuesday that the state
Department of Community
Affairs has approved a law
the council passed March 9
that allows council members
to hand-pick people for the
commission. Board members
were previously chosen
based on applications.
The council wasted no
time selecting new members
to its top advisory board -
and Shaffer and Halioua
were the odd men out.
"Based on the timing of the
next meeting of the Planning
[Commission], it's appropri-
ate we let the new members
get orientated and get down to
business," Councilman Dick


Ramsay said.
Commissioners Morgan
Hill, Ralph Lucignano and
Marien Aran Spinrad were
reappointed. Vice Mayor Mike
Cinque selected Hill,
Councilman Rich Keating
selected Lucignano and
Councilman Pete Worthington
chose Spinrad.
Mayor Ginger Snead and
Ramsay had new choices for
the board. Snead appointed
Dan Zieg while Ramsay
chose former Planning
Commissioner Jim Tashjian.
It now remains to be seen
whether Halioua, as he's said
he would, will appeal DCA's
final order. Snead said
Tuesday there is a 21-day
appeal period.
Halioua told the Keynoter
his ouster from the board
wasn't a surprise.
"I expected that because I
was too outspoken and I
knew there was a lot of poli-
tics involved in it. I value
integrity .more than politics,
and that doesn't seem to
work in this town," he said.
"I've been talking to my
lawyer and we'll decide
[whether to appeal] on
Monday morning."
Halioua previously said


he would appeal if DCA gave
its approval to changing how
the Planning Commission is
appointed, specifically, a pro-
vision in the new law allow-
ing council members . to
remove any planning com-
missioner by a simple major-
ity. A 4-1, or super majority
vote, used to be required.,
Shaffer also said he saw
his removal from the board
coming.
"I try to get out ahead of
these things. I wasn't upset
and it wasn't unexpected.
There were too many candi-
dates and only five spots. I'm
going to take the positives
and run with it," he said.
After the City Council
approved its changes to
board appointments, Spinrad
suggested sitting commis-
sioners fulfill their terms,
which are for two years. The
council ignored that on Feb.
23 'and approved a version of
the law to remove all five
members from the board. It
passed 3-2, with councilmen
Pete Worthington and Rich
Keating dissenting.
Planning Commission
appointments now coincide
with the terms of the council
member who appoint them.

Land-use debate sparks discord


Consultant says
transfer rights
may be solution
By KEVIN WADLOW
,enior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A consultant working. on
the update of Monroe County's
land-use plan stepped into a
couple hot-button develop-
ment issues for Upper Keys.
residents, triggering a sharp
response at a Tavernier work-
shop Wednesday.
"Flexibility" in using
transferable building rights
could resolve some develop-
ment issues, suggested
Michael Davis, vice presi-
dent of land-plan contractor
,Keith and Schnars.
Some available develop-
ment rights "go to waste" in
Florida Keys areas where
they are not ,needed, Davis
said, while a desirable project
elsewhere could wither for
lack of building rights in its
immediate locality.
"Right now, you cannot
move units to allow for better


development," said Davis,
indicating TDRs could be a
topic for study in the compre-
hensive plan update.
Most in the crowd of four
dozen people, mostly mem-
bers of the Tavernier
Community Association and
the Island of Key Largo
Federation of Homeowners
Association, held the con-
trary view.
"We heard you say you
think [TDRs] are a good
idea," Chris Gardner said in a
question session later. "Up
here, we don't."
The Upper Keys would
always be a developer's pre-
ferred location to build, given
the easy commute to Miami,
they said.
"We fought that idea a
couple years ago," said Barry
.Paterson. "Key Largo is far
too close to the big city; we'd
end up with all the develop-
ment. I think it's a poor idea."
"It would so skew growth
... No citizens anywhere in the
.county are for that," said
Sylvia Murphy, a former TCA
president who is now mayor
of Monroe County. The
County Commission hired


Keith and Schnars to its $1.02
million land-plan contract.
Five years ago, a develop-
ment firm acquired rights to
both the Seahorse RV Park
on Big Pine ,Key and the
Rowell's Marina property on
Key Largo.
The firm offered to build
affordable housing for the
� county at the Seahorse site -
if it could transfer market-
rate building rights about 75
miles north to build a 136-
unit, high-end condominium
on the Rowell's property.
Stalled by Upper Keys
opposition and questions
about the legality of the long-
distance transfer, the two-site
deal eventually was aban-
doned during the collapse of
South Florida's real-estate
market. Rowell's remains
undeveloped.
Residents also advised
Davis that they remain
opposed to a state Department
of Transportation plan to
install a 10-foot-wide shoulder
along northbound U.S. 1
through Key Largo.
While DOT staff contends
the shoulder is needed for
safety purposes, they have


acknowledged it would serve
as an additional hurricane-
evacuation lane.
Most of the residents at
the Wednesday meeting said
the lane is unneeded, and
could turn into a safety haz-
ard for illegal passing.
Davis advised those at the
meeting, as a matter of "full
disclosure," that DOT is a
major client of Keith and
Schnars.
"DOT generally doesn't
want a food fight," Davis said.
Murphy said disputes over
the so-called fifth lane caused
DOT to cancel needed main-
tenance projects. "They took
their toys and went home."
"There is some bad blood
here," TCA President John
Hammerstrom said. "People
in Miami-Dade see a road as
a way to get somewhere, but
we see [U.S. 1] as our main
street and front yard."
Davis advised residents to
fill out a six-question survey
- available online at
www.keyscompplan.com
- to raise issues they want to
see addressed in the plan
update.


Counters return

personnel and the handful
of Monroe residents who
live on the mainland.
Carruthers has been
trumpeting the importance
of the census since well
before it started on March
22. Return rates in Monroe
County during the 2000
census were poor, which
affected the amount of state
and federal grant dollars the
Keys received.
Returns were so poor, in
fact, that the Census Bureau
implemented a, hand enu-
meration program in the
Keys. It hired hundreds of
workers from the Keys and
South Florida to visit resi-
dents door to door. In other
areas of the country - and
at Keys military bases and
on mainland Monroe -


people were mailed surveys
and asked to fill them out
and return them.
Census Bureau spokes-
woman Helga Silva said
she received word Friday
that census workers will
canvass the Keys one last
time this weekend.
"Twenty-five to 30 enu-
merators will go down to
the Keys this weekend to
finish up the operation that
stands at around 98 percent.
They're looking at around
100 houses," Silva said.
Anyone not counted after
this weekend can contact the
Census Bureau office in
Homestead at (305) 508-9300.

sion meeting begins at 9

Key West city commis-

first reading of a new law that
would regulate open-air
restaurants that allow patrons

Commissioner Jimmy

The Marathon City
Council voted Tuesday for
more stringent evaluations of
the city's top administrator.
Mayor Ginger Snead
broached the topic at the
council's' regular meeting,
saying city managers past
have more or less received
rubber-stamped job'approvals.
"I sat up here last time and
reviewed a city manager and
it seemed to appear on the
agenda and we all said he's

referring to former City
Manager Clyde Burnett.
Snead recommended the
council formulate a sort of
grading system by which cur-
rent City Manager Roger
Hemstadt will be evaluated.

Weekley said.
The state Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation uniformly bans
dogs from eating establish-
ments but gives individual
municipalities the discretion
to override that if they enact
specific guidelines. Those
include:
* Obtaining a city permit
and carrying $1 million in
liability insurance.
* Posting conspicuous
signs advising regular hand
washing plus waterless hand
sanitizer in the area designat-
ed for patrons with dogs.
* Dogs should be leashed
and are not allowed in laps or
on chairs.
* "All dogs shall wear a
current license tag or rabies
tag and the patron shall have
a current license certificate or
rabies certificate immediate-


He's been on the job roughly
90 days and is due for a six-
month performance review.
"We have two months; we
need to start looking at this
now and think about how
we're going to do this evalu-
ation. Make it constructive
for our city, our city manager
and our residents. He
deserves that kind of respect
that we talk about it in
advance," Snead said.
Fellow council members
said Hemstadt has done well
so far but a public evaluation
is necessary.
"I think it's very important
that we go through this process
and set a standard from now
on. Roger has done an out-
standing job so far, but it's a
process we have to go through
and vet it in front of the citizens
of Marathon," Councilman
Rich Keating said.
The council scheduled the
June 22 City Council meet-
ing to begin discussing how
the evaluation will be done.

ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS� T

Congratulates 2010 Marathon High School Seniors

1' PLACE winner - Natalie Wright

2ND PLACERunner-Up -Vanessa .Jean
Vanessa Natalie

Natalie Wright, Winner of our Essay Contest, on:
"How Does a REALTOR� Professional Benefit the Community?"
Dreams take many forms. For many, it is winning the lottery or achieving career goals. For most, the most pre-
cious and yet attainable goal is the dream home. As I have grown up, I most often have heard the term "dream
house" when it comes to a reflection of people's most cherished desires.
What is a dream house? It is like any other house in that it is a personal space where on feels safe, a place where
one is free to express themselves. It is an enriching environment where people spend their lives and nurture
their families. There, people have an opportunity to express their personal taste, reflected in everything from
the paint colors to the furniture styles and landscaping. A house is most people's most treasured possession. A
dream house., however, is even more than that. It is nothing less than the culmination of all a person's hopes
and aspirations. It is their perfect shelter from the problems and challenges of life. In order for a person to reach
this dream, they need the assistance and advice of a REALTOR.
REALTORS are the professionals with the expertise of turning a dream into a reality. Through their extensive
training, broad knowledge and valuable experience, they match dreamers with their perfect homes every day.
REALTORS work tirelessly to hone their expertise of the housing market and dedicate themselves to assisting
their clients in every possible way. They offer a client a warm smile' and helping hand during the stressful time
of selecting a home. Often, a REALTOR becomes a cherished, lifelong friend of a person whom they assist. I
have lived my entire life in the same house, the dream that my parents achieved shortly before I was born. They
were not in the market to buy a property, but got a call from a REALTOR, who said, "I would like to show you
a house that I think you would love." The REALTOR was absolutely correct.
If this was all they did, they would serve an important role in the community. As it is, REALTORS are the back-
bone of my community, serving and enriching the area. They are the leaders of our churches, ringers of bells
for Salvation Army, and key members of all of the local service organizations, and so many other valuable
things. They spend countless hours raising funds for the American Cancer Society, for student scholarships, and
various charities. Ever since my personal bout with cancer, I have been very aware of their valiant efforts. Year
after year, they lead the way in support to finding a cure for cancer.
REALTORS encourage people to embrace their dreams while they enrich the lives of all in their communities.
Dreams are not answered on their own. It takes the experience and dedication exclusive to REALTORS to make
them come true. A dream house is a true and perfect home. Thanks to the REALTORS, this dream, for many,
can become a reality.

Oil summits need to

be open to public

Ros-Lehtinen calls a special session
for Monday at the University of Miami,
but will keep the door firmly shut

We applaud U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen for
calling a high-level meeting this coming Monday
in Miami to address the Gulf of Mexico oil spill's
possible effects on South Florida, but are per-
plexed why it isn't open to the public. After all,
isn't the spill the one thing everyone down here is
keeping a bold eye on?
The session at the University of Miami's
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science includes such luminaries as U.S. senators
Bill Nelson and George LeMieux, Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary Superintendent Sean
Morton, Rosenstiel School Dean Roni Avissar and
noted Rosenstiel Professor Nick Shay.
We asked Ros-Lehtinen aide Alex Cruz why the
public can't attend. He responded: "Because they
have two hours to discuss this and if they have the
public attend, nothing substantial will get dis-
cussed because obviously folks have many ques-
tions." He said the rules have been the same for
similar sessions.
We then asked why can't the public attend but
not be allowed to give input. Cruz: "We tried but
[the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration] said no and we wanted to hold the
roundtable ASAP."
So let's get this straight: Ros-Lehtinen'calls a
summit to address a disaster that has the potential
to wreak havoc on our economy - tourism, fish-
ing, you name it - but Ros-Lehtinen doesn't call
the shots about how that summit is run?
Seems to us that the single biggest threat to
Florida shy of a hurricane deserves to be addressed
in as many public forums as possible. Why
Monday's session is behind closed doors is beyond
acceptable.
There's a lot of misinformation out there about
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and Monday
would be a prime venue to dispel much of that.
We remind the congresswoman that it was only
Tuesday that the Monroe County Commission
called its own summit to address the spill and all
the ramifications of what would happen if the oil
hits the Loop Current and makes it south to the
Keys. That summit included Morton, U.S. Coast
Guard Sector Key West Cmdr. Pat DeQuattro --
even the chief BP incident commander, Keith
Seilhan.
That summit was open to - and well attended
by - the public.
It's probably too late to open up Monday's ses-
sion to the public unless a change of venue to a
large auditorium is made. That seems unlikely.
In fact, it's as unlikely as a PR-savvy congress-
woman who never misses the opportunity to get
her face or name in the press missing the chance to
do just that while keeping the public informed.

go to www.myfloridacensus.gov and
provide them your address, or call my
office at 292-3430.
This is particularly important to our

Care was excellent
We would like to recognize and
thank all of the very fine people who
work at Lower Keys Medical Center.
.While we were vacationing in Key
West this past April, my wife Debbie


became ill and ended-up in the emer-
gency room; underwent surgery and
was hospitalized for 11 days.
The residents of the Lower Keys are
very fortunate to have such an excellent
hospital. My wife's care was top notch.
The surgeons, nurses and certified
nursing assistants were all the best. The
kindness and caring they showed us
was indescribable; everyone was so
nice and always had smiles on their
faces. We cannot say enough about the
care she received.
We have been coming to Key West
for 17 years and this is just another
great thing that makes Key West so
special to us. So please, help us in giv-
ing a big thank you all who work at
Lower Keys Medical Center, and God
bless you all.

CELEBRATING OUR PAST


The Southernmost House at 1400 Duval St. was built for Key West pioneer Dr.Jeptha Vinning Davis who was a U.S. Navy
surgeon during the Civil War. He and his wife Florida Curry Davis became prominent civic leaders and the home was
known for hosting parties. During World War II, it was purchased by the Ramos family, which converted it to the Cafe
Cayo Hueso, which operated until 1954, when the family converted it back to residential use. Today, it operates as a
historic inn. The Southernmost House is Key West Historic Marker No. 8. For a free audio tour, call (305) 507-0300. The

Nurses are essential
National Nurses Week is celebrated
at this time every year, a time when we
take a moment to consider the tremen-
dous contributions that these health care
professionals make to our communities.
According to the American Nurses
Association, there are more than 3
million registered nurses and more
than 240,000 advanced practice nurs-
es in the United States.
Consider all of the different needs
for nurses and where they provide
their valuable services: Clinics, hospi-
tals, health centers, businesses, nurs-
ing homes, day-care centers and pri-
vate residences, among others.
The Monroe County Health Depart-
ment employs more than two dozen
nurses. They care for clients at clinics
in Key West, Marathon and Tavermier,
and manage community outreach and
prevention programs targeting hepati-
.tis, tuberculosis and more.


Registered nurse Talley Anne Reeb,
a Monroe County Health Department
employee who serves as health coordi-
nator for the Monroe County School
District, manages a crew of 12 school
nurses from Key West to Key Largo.
Her nurses are to be commended
for taking care of our children, every-
thing from routine health screenings
and immunizations to case manage-
ment that oftentimes involves working
with students, parents and school staff.
They were also vital to making the
H1N1 vaccination campaign run so
smoothly, greeting children at clinic
sites, easing anxieties, administering
shots and providing plenty of hugs
when it was ill over.
Florence Nightingale (1820-1910),
one of nursing's foremost pioneers whose
birth anniversary was also marked this
week, was known as the lady with the
lamp because she carried a lamp with her
when making rounds among injured


troops of the Crimean War.
I encourage everyone to thank a nurse
this week for being a beacon of compas-
sionate care and good health throughout
our community. Special thanks to all of the
nurses who work for and with the Mon-
roe County Health Department, including
but not limited to Joan Higgs, Steve Ma-
son, Cherie Hills, Ruth Roe, Chris Clark,
Talley Anne Reeb, Elizabeth Oropeza, Ran-
dy Rampfel, Donna Grizzle, Alice Morri-

Valhalla ramp

to remain as is


City still owns
it but won't
publicize it
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City
Council voted Tuesday to
leave well enough alone at a
city-owned boat ramp on
Valhalla Island.
The ramp became con-
troversial when Councilman
Dick Ramsay suggested
abandoning the property
due to liability if it's not
improved. He later backed
off that stance and instead
proposed making it more
accessible to the public. The
council voted no.
Residents of the small
mile marker 56 community
have spoken out against
that.
"I would like this council


to consider removal of ille-
gal signs on our right of way
and any barriers from any-
one using the property,"
Ramsay said Tuesday, refer-
ring to "no trespassing" and
"no parking" signs property
owners have posted.
For years, the owners of
the Valhalla Point Resort
and Valhalla Beach Hotel &
Resort have used, the city's
property at the end of Ocean
Drive as a private beach. It's
blocked off by vegetation
and fenced off.
Valhalla resident Nancy
Zieg-Schofield said publi-
cizing a boat ramp there is
"silly" because Curry
Hammock State Park sits
adjacent to the island.
"I don't know why the
focus has been on my little
island and they want to
launch [kayaks and canoes]
in front of a hotel that's been
there for 50 years. Leave us
alone. I don't get i " she


said.
The council agreed, for
the most part.
"We've got Curry
Hammock State Park within
300 yards of where this
location is. It's one of the
biggest recreation areas in
the city of Marathon. It's
silly to be competing against
something of that magni-
tude," Councilman Pete
Worthington said.
Vice Mayor Mike
Cinque warned the council
it shouldn't open a prover-
bial can of worms by
improving the area. The city
owns right of way on almost
every street in the city that
ends on open water.
"We're creating prob-
lems. Have Public Works go
up there and see if there's
any illegal signs and leave it
alone. I don't think we want
to encourage mini parks all
over our community," he
said.


City to reexamine fire costs


Marathon
wants more
from KCB
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Key Colony Beach resi-
dents can expect to pay more
for fire and emergency med-
ical services next fiscal year.
Marathon City Council
Dick Ramsay 'suggested to
fellow council members
Tuesday that its tiny neigh-
bor hasn't been paying what
he'd consider fair in recent
years. Key Colony contracts
with Marathon to provide
fire and EMS service for its,
roughly 800 residents.
"In the past, we've come
up with what we considered
to be a fair agreement with
KCB. It is my gut feeling that
once we examine the deal
that was been struck in the
past that we may have to
modify the deal," Ramsay
said at Tuesday's council
meeting.


Ramsay explained that
police and fire services make
up 46 percent of Marathon's
annual budget this year. That
includes a healthy boost due to
city contributions to the fire
department's pension pro-
gram.
According to Marathon
Finance Director Peter
Rosasco, Key Colony Beach
will pay $414,081 this fiscal
year' for fire protection. It
paid Marathon $434,081 in
2009, $348,856 in 2008 and
$365,000 in 2007.
Ramsay's main beef is
that Key Colony does not
help pay for the replacement
of expensive fire vehicles and
equipment. It also doesn't
help pay for cars and trucks
used for everyday travel.
The two cities agreed to a
three-year pact in 2007 -
with two options for three-
year renewals - that says
Key Colony will pay a per-
centage of Marathon Fire
Rescue's costs based on the
"just value" of a property, or
taxable land value minus
homestead or, any other


exemptions.
"In the past, [Key
Colony] has complained we
haven't given them time to,
digest our formula. I believe
we need to have staff come
up with a formula that repre-
sents fair and equitable cost,"
Ramsay said.
Fellow council members
- particularly Pete
Worthington-- are on board
with that idea. He's been crit-
'ical of the agreement because
it was reached without final
Monroe County Property
Appraiser's Office totals in
hand.
"I'm glad Councilman
Ramsay has- brought this
issue forward. The two budg-
et cycles before that I was
kind of a one-man band that
wanted to look at this. I'm
looking forward to going over
those numbers and seeing
what would be a fair distribu-
tion of the service," he said.
Key Colony Beach Mayor
Ron Sutton attended Tuesday
but did not address the
council.

Paradise Water Ice

Marathon


Marathon resident
Richard Mangel is giving a
time-honored summer tra-
dition up. North a go here in
the Florida Keys.
He and fellow Stanley
Switlik Elementary School
teacher Erin Voelliger
opened Paradise Water Ice
two weeks ago in
Marathon. Mangel said
memories of his own child-
hood in Atlantic City, N.J.,
led to the new venture.
"I remember getting
water ice with my dad in
the summer and hitting the
beach," he said.
Voelliger visited
Mangel's home state this
past summer, where she
had her first water ice expe-
rience.
"Erin is originally from
Iowa. When I took her up to
[New Jersey] this past sum-
mer, her and her daughter
fell in love with it," he said.
Mangel said he wanted
to open a place like that in
Marathon, where parents
and children could spend
time together.
"A place for them to
come with family," he
explained.
Paradise Water Ice is


near the intersection of
107th Street and Aviation
Boulevard in Marathon.
It's open from 5 p.m. until
10 p.m. each day for the
summer.
Mangel said the shop
offers 26 different flavors
of hand-dipped water ice,
including mango, rainbow,
strawberry banana swirl,
cotton candy and blue rasp-
berry. There are even two
sugar-free flavors - cherry
and lemon.
Paradise is easy to find
- just turn off U.S. 1 on
the gulf side at 107th Street,
and it's one block down
near the comer of Aviation.
Mangel says Paradise
has plenty of parking and
the takeout shop has picnic
tables available outside for
seating.
Paradise is also avail-
able for catering functions
like children's birthday par-
ties and will have a mobile
unit to visit residential
neighborhoods in the com-
ing weeks.

Foreclosures drop



nationwide in April


Keys numbers
down for third
month in a row

Staff and wire

Foreclosure filings in
Monroe County declined 32
percent in April, with only
105 housing units receiving
a foreclosure-related notice
last month.
Lenders last month filed
59 initial foreclosure actions
- known as lis pendens -
against homeowners; had 29
homes scheduled for public
auction; and took possession
of 17 homes, according to
Irving, Calif.-based Realty-
Trac, which tracks foreclo-
sures across the country.
In Monroe County, that
means one out of every'513
housing units was in some
state of foreclosure last
month.
Nearly twice as many
homes received a foreclo-
sure-related notice in April
2009, RealtyTrac reports.
RealtyTrac's monthly
reports for Monroe County
show foreclosure' filings
declining locally for three
months in a row.
In March, 155 homes, or
one out of every 347, were
in some state of foreclosure:
lenders filed 95 lis pendens,
scheduled 44 homes for auc-
tion and repossessed 16
homes. February's total was
196, a bump up from













Joseph H. Roth I
Regan Insurance Agency,


January's 169.
The Keys closed out
2009 with 1,817 housing
units in some state of fore-
closure during the year.
Nationwide, the number
of households facing fore-
closure in April fell 2 per-
cent from a year ago, the
first annual decline in five
years. RealtyTrac reported
that nearly 334,000 house-
holds, or one in every 387
homes, received a foreclo-
sure-related notice in April.
That was down more than 9
percent from March.
Earlier this week, credit
reporting agency Trans-
Union said the percentage of
borrowers who had missed
at least two months of pay-
ments posted the first quar-
terly drop in four years.


Still, the news was not all
sunny. Nearly 7.4 million
borrowers, or 12 percent of
all households with a mort-
gage, had missed at least one
month of.payments or were
in foreclosure as of March,
according to mortgage data
research firm Lender
Processing Services Inc.
Economic woes are the
main catalysts for foreclo-
sures now. Homeowners with
good credit who took out corn-
ventional, fixed-rate loans are
now the fastest growing
group of foreclosures.
Lenders are offering a
variety of programs to help
homeowners modify their
loans, but their success rates
vary. Hundreds of thousands
of homeowners can't qualify
or fall back into default.

Bartenders party on,


off Holiday Isle


Annual expo
not as rowdy
as years past
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The scene at the Sandbar
off Holiday Isle Resort and
Marina on Monday and
Tuesday could fairly be
described as risque, but not
raucous, likely thanks to
several law enforcement
vessels patrolling the waters
off Islamorada.
Revelers descended on
the Islamorada hot spot and
the popular Sandbar just off-
shore for the annual
Hospitality Expo Monday
and Tuesday, commonly
known as Bartenders
Weekend. The festivities
began years ago as an annu-
al tradition for hospitality
workers to let off steam after
the busy tourist season. But
now people of all profes-
sions come to town to party
on the water.
At the Sandbar, aboard
about 100 boats, men and
women danced, women took
their tops off and flashed
other partiers and passing
police boats, and drinks cer-
tainly flowed. The not-so-
faint scent of marijuana
smoke mixed with the smell.
of suntan lotion. But not
many did anything to
prompt law enforcement to
make arrests during the tra-
ditional party event.

A state marine officer on patrol at the Sandbar engages
a boat full of partiers.


But along with a good
time, fights between drunk-
en young men have also
become associated with the
event. That seems to be
changing.
"Compared to years past,
people seem to-be more well
behaved," said Officer
Bobby Dube of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission. As of
Tuesday, there had been
about 21 arrests associated
with the event, according to
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman
Deputy Becky Herrin.
Law enforcement arrest-


ed 32 people last year, sig-
nificantly fewer than the 58
arrested at the 2007
Hospitality Expo.
"This is very tame this
year, and nothing compared
to Memorial Day," Dube said.
FWC officers, Sheriff's
Office deputies and mem-
bers of the U.S. Coast Guard
patrolled the Sandbar. One
strategy used to avoid con-
frontation is not allowing
too many boats to congre-
gate together.
"We like to keep them all
spread out," FWC Officer Erik
Steinmetz said. "We don't get
as many fights this way."


11-year-old officially charged


He, his brother
are accused of
sexual battery,
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The younger of two broth-
ers accused of sexually bat-
tering two other Marathon
boys was officially charged
Tuesday,
Assistant State Attorney
Patrick McCullah said the
boy, now 11, is charged with
one count of sexual battery
and one count of lewd or las-
civious behavior. He was 10
when the alleged crimes were
committed.
Both charges carry penal-
ties that could possibly keep


the pre-teen in jail for nearly
10 years. Neither boy will be
charged as an adult.
"It would be subject to
rules in the juvenile court,
which could be up to [21
years of age] potentially,
given certain circumstances,"
McCullah said.
The boy and his 13-year-
old brother were arrested in
April for allegedly forcing
two other boys, ages 7 and 9,
into multiple sexual acts. The
13-year-old was a Marathon
Middle School student, while
the others attended Stanley
Switlik Elementary School.
The older accused brother
was arraigned on May 4 on
two counts of sexual battery,
but the other was extended
until now. McCullah was
unable to discuss why.


. "The defense had some
more information they want-
ed to provide me and I'm
always willing to sit and lis-
ten prior to the filing," he
said.
McCullah said the fami-
lies of both victims "will be
available for trial. The fami-
lies are cooperating."
The incidents allegedly
took place in Marathon from
December through February,
the Monroe County .Sheriff's
Office said. According to
Sheriff's Office reports, most
of the sexual encounters took
place in a downstairs enclo-
sure at the accused brothers'
home.
The brothers are sched-
uled for a pre-trial conference
hearing in Marathon May 25.


Cockfighting suspects remain jailed


Two Lower Keys men
remain jailed following their
separate Thursday arrests for
running cockfighting opera-
tions.
Jorge Blanco, 39, of
Rockland Key, is charged
with 71 misdemeanor counts
of cruelty to animals, and one
felony count each of using an
animal to fight, possessing
equipment to get animals to
fight, and operating a proper-
ty where animal fighting was
taking place. He's being held
on $15,000 bond.
Ricardo Delrio, 20, of
Stock Island is charged with
eight misdemeanor counts of
animal cruelty and one
felony count each of using an


animal to fight, possessing
equipment to get animals to
fight and operating a proper-
ty where animal fighting was
taking place.
Here's what the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office says
happened:
Detectives were serving a
search warrant for drugs at
5531 5th Ave. on Stock Island,
and found not only Delrio and
cocaine but 50 chickens along
with a cockfighting ring, and
spurs, spur covers and med-
ications commonly used in
cock fighting. Several of the
roosters were mutilated in a
way commonly used in fight-
ing - their wattles and combs
were cut and breast and leg


feathers plucked.
Delrio was also arrested
on the drug charges -
cocaine trafficking, two
counts of selling drugs within
1,000 feet of a school or
church, and possession of
marijuana. Bail is $169,000.
Blanco was arrested at
591 Park Drive on Rockland
based on complaints from
animal control officers.

NEWS BRIEFS

Carolina's Sanford
looks south for love
South Carolina Gov. Mark
Sanford said Wednesday he
spent last weekend in Florida
- in all probability the
Upper Keys - with his
Argentine lover hoping to
rekindle the affair that
wrecked his marriage and
political future and brought a
formal rebuke from South
Carolina legislators for
embarrassing that state.
At a news conference on an
unrelated issue, Sanford con-
ceded he owes the public the
assurance that he's safe and in
communication with his office
but said the media is obsessed
with his personal life.
Questions arose after the
Web site Gawker posted
comments from tipsters who
reported seeing Sanford at
Cheeca Lodge at mile marker
82 and the Island Bay Resort
at mile marker 92.5. Sanford
said he didn't stay at Cheeca.
His safety and accessibili-
ty became issues when he
disappeared for five days last
summer after he slipped his
security detail and left no
word on where he went,
which was to Argentina to
see his girlfriend. That raised
'questions about who was in
charge of the state.

Expectations

Associated Press

The five-category sys-
tem that describes a hurri-
cane's strength and the
havoc its winds could
bring to the U.S. has been
updated for the 2010 storm
season.
Gone from the Saffir-

Scale are estimates for
storm surge and inland
flooding from rainfall.
The scale was changed
to alleviate confusion over
storm surge and flooding
predictions that 'didn't

tions to homes, shopping
centers and industrial
buildings are more specif-
ic than the previous ver-
sion and updated to reflect
more coastal development.
"In coastal areas of
Florida, there are a lot
more high-rises where the
windows are susceptible to
damage. That broken glass
wasn't covered at all in the
old one," Landsea said.
In a Category 1 hurri'-
cane, shingle or metal roof
coverings could peel off
mobile homes, stone chim-
neys can topple and large
tree branches will snap.
By Category 3, most
mobile homes, fences and
unprotected windows face
certain destruction, and
people should expect to go
without electricity or run-


ning water for days after
the storm passes.
A Category 4 storm will
cause severe structural
damage even to well-built
homes.
Category 5 damage is
catastrophic: Total roof
failure, blown-out win-
dows throughout high-
rises, neighborhoods iso-
lated by fallen trees and
power poles, water short-
ages and other widespread
suffering.
The damage described
may be less severe in
Florida and the Carolinas,
because those states have
the best building codes in
the country, Landsea said.
The revised Saffir-
Simpson scale eliminates
references to flooding
caused by rain and esti-
mates for storm surge, or
the mound of seawater
pushed ahead by a hurri-
cane's winds. This simpli-
fies the scale and shows
that forecasters now have
a better understanding of
how storm surge works.
said Florida's state mete-
orologist. Amy Godsey.
The problem with the
previous version was how


inconsistent it proved to
be when it came to storm
surge, she said.
The revision to the
Saffir-Simpson scale took
more than a year. Five
wind engineers submitted
updated descriptions of
wind damage, and a draft
was released for public
comment last year.
It's the first update to
the scale since barometric
pressure. was removed
from it about a decade ago,
Landsea said. A storm
intensifies as the pressure
drops, a phenomenon that
once helped forecasters
assign a Saffir-Simpson
category.
Herbert Saffir, .a
Miami-area structural
engineer, created in 1969 a
scale for the damage an
approaching hurricane
could bring. The five-cate-
gory scale was expanded
to include storm surge and
flooding in the early 1970s
by Robert Simpson, then
director of the hurricane
center.
Before the Saffir-
Simpson scale, hurricanes
were simply described as
major or minor.

at five UK venues

By Claudia Miller
L'Attitudes Correspondent

Usually a musician has to
play for years, working hard
to get established, before
playing an entire gig. solely
of songs they've written.
However, the Key Largo
Singers and Songwriters
Festival Thursday erases
those hurdle.s.
The result is artists and
audience get to share origi- "
nal music during a four-day
festival that runs May 20-23
and is hosted at five water-


front venues in Key Largo.
With 20 musicians on the
bill, audiences will get to
hear country, rock, pop and
rhythm and blues, including
performances by three
Nashville headliners -
Megan Conner, Matt Nolen
and KentAgee.
Bob Stoky, one of the fes-
tival organizers, said that the
Upper Keys Business Guild
started the event last year to
help bring attention to the
Key Largo music scene.
"It was very successful,"
he said. "Both the town and
the entertainers loved the
event. People got to hear
amazing musicians from
Nashville to Key West,
while the entertainers got to
perform their own songs.


instead of the covers that
they are typically forced to
play in most venues."
The festival kicks off
from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on
Thursday, May 20th at
Snappers at mile marker 94
with continuous live music
on two stages. From 6 p.m.
to llp.m. Friday, May 21,
and from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Saturday, May 22, music
lovers can walk between
four bayside stages at
Sundowners, Cactus Jacks.
Big Chill and the Caribbean
Club. All are located at mile
marker 104.
The festival returns to
Snappers from 5 p.m. to 7
p.m. Sunday, May 23, for its
finale on the two stages.
This will be Conner's


second appearance at the
festival, and she will be
bringing two other up-and-
coming musicians, Leland
Grant and Hailey Steele,
who will accompany her
with guitar and vocals.
She got her start as a
country singer in New York
City when she was discov-
ered by songwriter and pro-
ducer Paul Vance ("Itsy
Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow
Polka Dot Bikini" and
"Catch a Falling Star").
After recording with
Vance, Conner moved to
Nashville, and her energetic,
heartfelt and sassy perform-
ances quickly brought her to
the forefront of the scene. In
2008, she was a Top 4 final-

'A shared narrative'


From Poet, 5B

chained to their desks
alongside moldy rhyming
dictionaries, forced to grind
out lyrics like sweatshop
workers creating whatever
product might suit the
whims of Americans affli-
cted with an insatiable
appetite for the new.
In reality, the 150-plus
writers who gathered here
last week (and the audienc-
es who flocked to see them
perform in more than a do-.
zen different venues that
ranged from intimate jam
sessions to more-than-am-
ply amped outdoor con-'
certs) were bright-eyed and
mellow, amiable and im-
perturbable in a way that
was reminiscent of a Key
West gone by, the days
when jam sessions, unusual
stories and arrangements
were an Old Town norm
rather than an exception.
Despite the series of
long days and longer
nights, the songwriters and
musicians shared in an
impressive camaraderie that
was nearly as smooth - and
as tight - as the tales they
told at the mic and away


from it, exposing a shared
narrative thread between
the Nashville songwriting
community and our own.
We each face the challenge
of being small, insular and
difficult to sustain while
trying to maintain the kind
of broad appeal that can be
an agent of liberation and
destruction..
It's a generally agreed
upon fact that as it has
grown, the Better Angels
Key West Songwriters'
Festival has gotten better.


Growth has meant more
venues, more shows, more
writers and more guests.
It's also yielded other
consequences, including
more interest from industry
executives and increased
pressure on resources that
are already teetering on the
verge of exhaustion.
Ah, the ironies of bal-
ance and resilience! They
may, at long last, have
inspired that first
song...anyone know what
rhymes with "fugue"?


Community Theater, 5101
Overseas Highway, Marathon
(MM 49.5 Ocean).
The program begins at
12:30 p.m. and will include a
special presentation by histo-
rian David Harrison Wright,
President of the Board of
Directors of the Key West
Art & Historical Society.
Elizabeth Young, execu-
tive director of the Council,
will talk about "The State of
the Arts."

"City Island," starring
Andy Garcia as a lifelong resi-
dent of a quaint fishing village
who longs to be an actor opens
Friday, May 14, at Tropic
Cinema in Key West.
Written and directed by
Raymond De Felitta, Garcia
plays Vince Rizzo, ashamed to
admit his acting aspirations to


his family. Instead, he lets his
fiery wife (played by Julianna
Margulies) believe his weekly
poker games are a cover for an
extramarital affair.
When Rizzo's acting
classes bring him to reunite
with his long-lost son, an ex-
con, the secrets at home and
in his acting class triggers a
chain reaction.
Ronie Scheib, writing in
Variety, says of "City Island":
