Even without oil from the
BP spill being found in the
Florida Keys, local business-
es are losing customers, say
lawyers working with
Monroe County residents.
"There have been actual
cancellations because people
are not willing to risk their
money and vacation time with
the chance of running into a
disaster," said Fort Lauderdale
attorney Robert McKee.
Hundreds of Keys residents
turned out at a series of local
forums organized this week by

South Florida attorneys.
S"The most important thing
is that we hope this spill
doesn't touch our shores,"
said Upper Keys attorney Jim
Lupino. "We live here, and
we don't want it here. But if
it does come, we want people
to know what they can do to
be prepared."
,Sessions Wednesday in
Islamorada and Thursday in
Key West each drew upward
of 100 people, according to
the law firms.
"We didn't go to sign peo-
ple up. We didn't even take any
retainer-agreement forms,"
Lupino said., "We wanted to
educate people about what's
happening scientifically, and
what they need to do to docu-

'Critical time'


for Loop Current


Models suggest
most of the oil
could shift west
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
A shifting Loop Current
might carry most of the oil
from the BP spill to the west,
say Gulf of Mexico oceanog-
raphers.
"If this happens, it would
be a good thing for the Florida
Keys," said Steve Morey, a
research scientist in Ocean-
Atmospheric Prediction
Studies at Florida State
University. It could potential-
ly cut off a [south-flowing]
pathway for oil in that part of


the Loop Current."
The Loop Current brings
water down the west coast of
Florida, around the Keys and
up the east coast.
At press time Friday,
some models based on satel-
lite surveys suggest the
northern part of the Loop
Current "could break apart as
a separate eddy, a couple
hundred miles across,"
Morey said.
If that occurs, the bulk of
the oil from the Deepwater
Horizon oil spill could be
caught in a circulating loop.
However, the models are not
in exact agreement, he noted.
"It's not yet entirely clear
if the eddy has separated yet,
or whether it's still-connect-

Survivors of the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane speaking at the Matecumbe Historical Trust include (from left) Charles
Pellicer, Charles Roberts, Laurette Pinder Russell, Joe Pinder, Alma Pinder Dalton, Everette Albury and Norman Parker.

When 'water came, they drowned like rats'


423 perished
one.day-in 1935,
in Islamorada
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Screams of men dying in
the flooded Windley Key
quarry stay with Charles
Roberts 75 years later.
Laurette Pinder Russell
remembers despair, thinking
she and her family had been
stranded far out to sea by the


1935 Labor Day Hurricane.
Joe Pinder, then 5 years
old, describes being blasted
by sand blown by 200, mph
winds that raked Islamorada.
"It felt like buckshot hitting
you behind the ear," he said.
A group of seven people
who survived a direct hit
from the strongest hurricane
ever to strike the United
States coastline came togeth-
er at an April 27 event in
Islamorada to tell their sto-
ries, tales of being young in
a time of calamity, destruc-
tion and death.
"We didn't have time to


be scared," said Alma Pinder
Dalton, then 11.
Four of the, 14 people in
the house where Dalton's
family futilely sought refuge
didn't survive. They were
among the hundreds who
died on Sept. 2, 1935.
Roberts, age 6 when the
storm struck, joined his family
in a Windley Key 'house near
the quarry. "Around 7 [p.m.],
the roof went completely off,"
he said, "not a stick left."
His father grabbed
Roberts and a brother "by
the straps on our overalls"
and tried to make their way


to a car parked nearby.
His mother carried her
youngest, 6 months old.
"She could barely stand up,
the wind was so strong."
They found the car, a Ford,
and climbed inside. "There
were 11 of us in that car,"
Roberts said. "That was the
only thing that saved us. We
were packed like sardines."
Hurricane winds blew the
back window out. "We had
to hold the back seat up to
keep the wind out and keep
the car from flying," he said.

HURRICANE SEASON


'Active' st(

NOAA predicts
up to seven
major 'canes
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Hurricane season 2010
shapes up as "very aggres-
sive," with a long-range
forecast suggesting up to 14
hurricanes may form,
according to the National
Weather Service.
Never in the dozen years


orm season expected


since the Weather Service's
Climate Prediction Center
began issuing long-range
forecasts has the agency
started with a high-end pre-
diction of 23 named tropical
storms, said Chris Vaccaro of
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.
The NOAA prediction says
there could be seven major
hurricanes, with Category 3
winds of 111 mph and higher.
An average season would
see six hurricanes, with two
reaching major-hurricane
strength.
Gerry Bell, lead seasonal


hurricane forecaster at
NOAA's Climate Prediction
Center, "has been saying it's
not a matter of whether this
season will be above aver-
age, but how far above aver-
age," Vaccaro said.
"If this outlook holds true,
this season could be one of
the more active on record,"
NOAA administrator Jane
Lubchenco said when the
report was released Wednes-
day. "The greater likelihood
of storms brings an increased
risk of a landfall."

or higher).
* Eight to 14 hurricanes
(top winds of 74 mph or
higher).
* Three to seven major
hurricanes (Category 3 or
higher).
"This is a very aggres-
sive forecast, the most
aggressive forecast we've
issued in May," Vaccaro
said.
There were three hurri-
canes in the 2009 season,
with two reaching major-
hurricane force at some
point. No hurricane made
landfall in the United States.
The busiest hurricane
season on record came in
2005, with 28 named storms
and 15 hurricanes. Those
included Hurricane Katrina
that devastated New
Orleans, and Hurricane
Wilma's surge that caused
serious flooding in the
Florida Keys.
Factors that could make
this hurricane season so
busy:
* The expected absence
of the El Nino weather
system, which typically
helps break up storms that
may strengthen. That hap-
pened last season.
* Warm Atlantic waters,
currently about four
degrees Fahrenheit above
normal.
* A years-long period of


high hurricane activity.
NOAA noted that after a
relatively quiet era ended
in 1995, "Eight of the last
15 seasons rank in the Top
10 for the most named
storms."
Craig Fugate, the for-
mer Florida emergency
management director now
heading the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, said "it's impor-
tant that families and busi-
nesses in coastal commu-
nities take steps now to be
ready."
"You can't control
when a hurricane or other
emergency may happen,"
Fugate said, "but you can
make sure you're ready."
In April, the Tropical
Meteorology Project at
Colorado State University
issued a season forecast of
15 named storms, with
eight hurricanes, four of
them major.
That group, founded by
Dr. William Gray, will
issue a revised forecast
Wednesday based on con-
ditions that have changed
since its first report.
The Colorado State
team calculated the
chances of a hurricane
landfall on the southeast
U.S. coastline, which
includes Florida, ranges
from 44 to 45 percent this
season.


Weather is key

ed, which would allow a
flow pathway for the oil,"
Morey said.
Even if the eddy does
break away, he said, it
could wind up drifting
back into the main Loop
Current.
"This is a very critical
time. It's all at the mercy
of the current and the
winds," Morey said. "The
longest forecast we have is
to go out maybe a week."
"This is notoriously
difficult [predicting] to
do," he said. "We've been
working on it for years and
we're getting better, but
there are still a few differ-
ent scenarios."
It appears at least a por-
tion of oil from the BP
spill has become entrained
in a tendril that is heading
south. Whether it reaches
the Keys, or what it would
look like if it arrives, no
one can say.
"One of the big prob-
lems we're having is get-
ting good pictures of
where the oil is right now,"
said Morey, noting that
many of the satellites
being used to track the
spill are owned by private
companies or foreign gov-


emments.
On Thursday, the U.S.
Geological Survey
released new estimates
indicating that the extent
of the spill could be signif-
icantly greater than previ-
ously suspected.
The total could range
between 19 million and 39
million gallons of oil that
has. flowed into the gulf
since the Deepwater
Horizon oil rig exploded
on April 20, according to
the report. If so, that
makes the spill worse than
the 1989 sinking of the
Exxon Valdez in Alaska.
Oceanographers with
the University of South
Florida reported new dis-
coveries of spilled oil on
the northern Gulf of
Mexico sea floor. That oil
could linger in the gulf for
years, they said.
An attempt started
Wednesday by BP to plug
the leak, one mile down,
continued at press time.
Early indications suggest-
ed the "top kill" attempt
was working, but the
process has been halted at
least twice.
BP officials said they
will not know until later
this weekend whether it
succeeded.

Wood 'went right through him'


From Survivors, 1 A
The storm surge inside the
car rose to around their waists,
Roberts said, "and that spot is
15 feet above sea level."
"We had to sit there for
hours," he said. "As a kid, it
seemed like it took forever to
subside.... It wasn't easy but
we made it."

Drowned in quarry
About 600 World War I
veterans were living in
Upper Keys camps while
they built the Overseas
Highway, a Depression-era
works project. Some of them
scrambled into the Windley
Key quarry, seeking shelter
from the winds in walls cut 6
to 8 feet below ground level.
Then came the storm
surge, about 18 feet high
with wind-whipped waves.
"When the water came,
they drowned like rats,"
Roberts said. "They were
screaming and hollering all
night long. We couldn't get
out [of the car] to get them.
That was the worst part. You
could hear them screaming
and there was nothing we
could do."
Water was not the only
killer. "Things were flying
through the air like 'Star
Wars,'" Roberts said.
The next day, his father
found a veteran mortally
injured by large piece of
splintered wood "that went
right through him." His
father used the only pain-
reliever at hand - a found
can of Prince Albert tobacco
- to place on the wound. "It
didn't help. He passed,"
Roberts recounted.
For days afterward,
Roberts said, bodies of veter-
ans could be seen "the way
they died, hanging onto
something."
Laurette Pinder Russell,
then 16, went with her fami-
ly to her married sister's
house, farther inland on
Upper Matecumbe Key.
When water started coming
under the door, her father
tasted it to confirm it was
saltwater.
"This house is coming
apart. We have to get out of
here,". her father declared.
They fled in the rising


waters. Stay together at all
costs, her father said.
"We were just floating"
until they came across a pile
of coconut logs and debris.
"The wind was terrible,"
Russell said. "When it was
all over, all my clothes were,
torn off."
Receding water dropped
rapidly, "like coffee out of a
cup," she said.
They were stranded on "a
huge pile of rubbish," won-
dering else if anyone else on
the island had survived. ,
Then she saw a flashing
light in the distance. "I told
my father we may as well
give up," Russell said.
"We're only a pile of rubbish
and we're floating out in the
Gulf Stream because there's
the lighthouse. They're never
going to find us out here."
The light turned out to be
fellow survivors, signaling
from a nearby bus. "It'was a
very hard night but we sur-
vived, thanks to God," said
Russell, who would later
marry fellow hurricane sur-
vivor Bernard Russell.
Alma Pinder Dalton was
with younger brother Joe
when a house sheltering 14
people "exploded, it went
completely to pieces."
"We were all thrown into
the water," she said. Like
Joe, she remembers "ears
skinned from the weather."
They survived the storm,
Joe riding on a mattress their
father found floating.
Like Russell, Dalton did-
n't recognize the island and
assumed they were lost "out
on the bank."
Their mother was serious-
ly injured when trapped in
debris, and was among the
first to be evacuated by boat
to Snake Creek, where
ambulances were waiting.
Their mother was hospital-
ized for a broken collarbone
and ribs but recovered.
"As far as suffering from
it or having any kind of trau-
ma, we never did," Dalton
said. "I guess it was our faith
and the way we were raised."
Norman Parker, then the
4-year-son son of the local
constable, said his family left
its two-story oceanfront
home on Upper Matecumbe
Key to shelter in a relative's


small house farther inland.
"We had 15 people in that
little cottage," he said. "We
had dinner and everything
was quiet until around 8
[p.m,]. I remember the roof
coming off."
All 10 children in the
house were piled onto a dou-
ble bed that became a raft.
"Everybody held on," he
said.
"The flying debris was a
terrible thing that killed
numerous people and friends
.of the family," Parker said.

Collecting bodies
After the storm, his father
helped collect bodies. "My
mother made him take his
clothes off when he came
home; the smell was terri-
ble," Parker said.
When Miami morgues
filled up, a decision was
made to cremate the bodies
on a spot near the Rustic Inn
(now the Green Turtle Inn),
with .thk remains interred
until they could be moved to
what is now the Hurricane
Monument.
The official death toll in
Islamorada was placed at
423 victims - 259 veterans
at the highway camps and
169 civilians.
Charlie Pellicer and
Everett Albury weathered the
storm in Tavernier, just far
enough away that the storm's
devastation was less severe.
"I do remember the [res-
cue] train going by at 7:30
[p.m.] or so," Pellicer said.
"It never made it all the way
down."
In .a house in Tavernier,
"about eight to 10 inches of
water got inside," Albury
said. "The door blew open."
Adults "used a broom
stick [to lean outside] and see
how deep the water was,"
Albury said. "The house
might have floated for a cou-
ple hours, we didn't know
where we were."
Many of the families
moved to the mainland while
Islamorada - virtually lev-
eled - was rebuilt.
"As soon as the [Red
Cross] concrete homes were
done, we moved back,"
Parker said. "We were happy
to be back," Dalton said.


Values going down


From Taxes, 1A

As for any chances the
numbers might come out dif-,
ferently come July, Borglun
says they tend to be very
accurate. That means tough
decisions for Keys govern-
ments in the near future.
In Marathon, those dis-
cussions began Tuesday dur-
ing a regular City Council
meeting. Finance Director
Peter Rosasco said he

"That started a serious
restriction on local govern-
ments in terms of raising
money via ad valorem taxes
and other revenues, the for-
mula that was put in place
that essentially froze munici-
pal governments' ability to
raise taxes." he said. "We
were able to get through that
without raising taxes or
decreasing services."
But that can't last forever,
Rosasco says.
"There's a certain point

don't know that we'll be able
to do that this year."
That's where City
Manager Roger Hernstadt
comes in. He says Marathon
will institute an "austerity
program" to eliminate cer-
tain types of expenditures
from the budget. That will
include travel not pertaining
to training or certification,
among other things.
"We're going to do a top-

OIL SPILL THREAT


Sink gets an economic earful


State CFO
hears concerns
about BP spill
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Florida Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink was in Key
West Friday for a campaign
event, and took time to meet
with a group of Keys officials
and business leaders to dis-
cuss the economic impacts of
the Gulf of Mexico oil spill
on the Keys.
Sink, Democratic candi-
date for governor, met with
the group for an hour.
"I think it went well. She
got a good idea of how we
feel down here and what the
potential impacts are to the
business community and the
Keys in general," Monroe
County Administrator Roman


Gastesi said.

and contractor Frank Toppino.
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council Exec-
utive Director Harold
Wheeler also attended. He
'said he relayed the type to
Sink the type of negative
.media the Keys have
received.
"I.basically said it looks
like a very good weekend
now, but that took a lot of
time and energy and money
to counteract the national
media we received about
the tar balls," Wheeler said,


referring to the three-day
Memorial Day weekend.
Tar balls were found at
several Keys locations a
week and a half ago but the
U.S. Coast Guard says they
aren't related to the
Deepwater Horizon spill.
No oil from, the spill has
found its way to the Keys.
Wheeler said he also
talked about the preliminary
stages of a media analysis
detailing media impacts on
different destinations in
Florida.
"Preliminary reports say
we got more [negative]
media about the tar balls
and the oil getting into the
current. I wanted her to
know a lot of damage was
done there and we had to
spend a lot of money to off-
set that at this time," he
said.
County Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro, named


by Gov. Charlie Crist to a
statewide panel that will
look at the economic
effects of the spill on
Florida, also attended the
meeting and said it was
important to make Sink
aware of the impact of neg-
ative press.
"I think we got the point
across to her that we have
probably gotten three times
the negative media that
North Florida has gotten,"
he said.
Wheeler said while doc-
umenting lost business is
difficult, it was advanta-
geous to have Florida's top
financial officer hear local
concerns.
"She is the CFO and
she's the one looking at the
money .and the possibility
of helping us and small
businesses that may be sub-
mitting claims," he said.


ELECTION 2010


Sixth candidate signs up in Marathon


Vassil hopes

council seats
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

As the official June 18
qualifying date draws nearer,
the number of competitors
for three open seats on the
Marathon City Council is
steadily increasing.
'Longtime Marathon resi-
dent John Vassil became the
sixth candidate to file to run
for the council Thursday. He
,told the Keynoter .he simply

nity.
"I always
wanted to
put my hand
in a little
politics in
this town,
but I had
VASSIL time con-
straints before. [The council
seems] to be doing a decent
job, but sometimes you need
someone a little less biased. I
think I can use a common
sense approach," Vassil said.
Vassil says if elected, he
plans to keep a keen eye on
the city's financial situation.
"I do have a pet peeve,
and that's. fiscal responsibili-


ty," he said.
Other than the city budget,
Vassil says he won't run on
any specific platform. He
mainly thinks of himself as
an objective problem solver.
"I don't have anything
particular," he said. "I can sit
down and drill down what
the problem is and maybe get
down to the root cause of it."
Vassil, a retired Walgreens
manager, said he doesn't
speak for any other candi-
dates, but that he has no per-
sonal agenda in running for
the council.
"Someone who can think
logically and doesn't have
any personal agenda would
be refreshing. I'm not saying


they do, but I'm providing a
fresh face. I've helped people
in this town for the last 20
years and I'd like to help the
city again," he said.
Incumbents Mayor
Ginger Snead and council-
men Dick Ramsay and Pete
Worthington are seeking re-
election. They're joined by
first-time candidate Larry
Shaffer, a former city plan-
ning commissioner, and
"Bicycle" Joannie Nelson.
Council members are cho-
sen at large, so the highest
three vote getters will be
elected. The general election
is Nov. 2. Official candidate
qualifying is the week of

Proposed resort gets public airing


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The development of any
proposed market-rate and
transient housing on private-
ly owned Wisteria Island off
Key West hinges on state
approval of a land swap
needed to establish a public-
access mooring field.
Monroe County planners,
on Wednesday pointed to the
100-plus-ball managed
mooring field and two acres
of free-access upland green
space on the 21-acre spoil
island as the public benefit
needed to justify the high-
end resort desired by land
owner Roger Bernstein, and
partners in the Walsh family.
'Plans call for the mooring
field with upland develop-
ment including a ship's store,
pump-out facility, harbor-
'master's office, and restau-
rant and bar. The housing end
calls for 35 market-rate units,
35 transient units containing
85 bedrooms and five work-
force units.
"No upland development
will occur until the mooring
field is approved," Mitch
Harvey, county comprehen-
sive planning manager, told
county planning commission-
ers on Wednesday. "There are


still a few concerns."
"One of them has to do
with the two-acre public-
access open space area that
the county staff is requesting.
The applicant wants that to
be 1.6 acres of public use that
they're going to be providing
as part of their development
and they want that to be
patron public use, not open
public use."
"We are not trying to build
a new Higgs Beach on
Wisteria Island," Owen
Trepanier, the developer's
land-use consultant, said.
"We are creating access to
this island, which now has no
access, to anybody in the
mooring field or anybody
coming to the island to use
the facilities."
He called the county's
request for two acres of open
space "excessive."
-The development would-
n't be affected by the rate-of-
growth-ordinance, which ties
building permits to hurricane
evacuation times.
Growth Management
Director Christine Hurley
explained the three-step
process that would move
allocated density and
dwelling units from sender
sites, dedicating that property
in conservation.


Wisteria Island, under
current zoning, permits only
one unit per 10 acres, or two
houses.
"To go up to these addi-
tional units," Hurley said,
"they have to buy lard, move
allocated density, then dedi-
cate that land to the county
for conservation.
"Then they'd also have 'to
move existing units so we
don't use any new net units in
the hurricane evacuation
model. The third thing they
have to do is retire those [units]
from where they came from."
Such transferred develop-
ment rights in many cases
exist only on paper, often the
product of a failed commer-
cial redevelopment or RV
park that was purchased
strictly to serve as a transient
sender site.
"We're encouraging them
to look at Big Pine Key as a
sender site so we can pre-
serve more conservation sites
out there," Harvey said.
Trepanier, in his response,
provided a rare glimpse into
the usually closed society of
buying and selling vested
building . rights, transient
units and permit allocations.
"If I mention which units
we're planning on using, the
price of those things would


go through the roof," he said.
"We could go out and acquire
an underperforming resort
somewhere and transfer the
transient units," for example.
Step, one of this process is
getting Wisteria Island a
Future Land Use Map desig-
nation, which it inexplicably
was not assigned in the early
1990s when the county
adopted its comprehensive
land-use plan.
Trepanier stated his opin-
ion on that: "The county neg-
lected to regulate this piece
of land, neglected to exercise
its duty to regulate this land;
therefore, there is no regula-
tion on this land."
"I don't think we'can have
that discussion at this time,"
Planning Commission Chair-
man Randolph Wall said.
"We're not here to argue
that," Trepanier said. "That's
how you end up in court."
The Planning Commission
takes up the matter next on
June 9 at the Marathon
Government Center.


Lawyers line up


From Lawsuits, 1A

Hershoff, Lupino and
Yagel have met privately
with "several" potential
clients.
"Some are starting to feel
the effect of cancellations,"
Lupino said. "For now,
we're waiting to see what
happens with the spill."
Key West Tiki Charters,
owned by Michael "Capt.
Duck" Burge, sued BP this
past week in federal court,
citing the oil giant for a loss
of business due to the threat
of oil reaching the Keys.
"The tourism economy
down there in the Keys is
based on the ocean," said
Coral Gables attorney Alex
Alvarez, who represents
Key West Tiki. "People are
hearing news reports that
this is affecting the Keys,
and that's having a big
effect on the economy."
"This is terrible. I feel so
bad for these people, from
charter captains to the hard-
ware store that sells nails to
captains," Alvarez said. "It
trickles down. I do think the
Keys economy could be in
peril."
Businesses should col-
lect income reports from
previous years and keep a
detailed log of people who
cancel because of oil-spill
fears, Lupino said.
"BP says they will pay
all legitimate claims, and
the key word there is legiti-
mate," he said. "People

it can be contrasted with

he said.

Marathon wants to hike fire fee


KCB: Maybe we
should start
own department

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon city officials
say Key Colony Beach has
been getting quite the bargain
on fire and emergency ined-
ical services in recent years.
City Manager Roger
Hernstadt put it best when
describing the proposed
annual increase - more than
$250,000 - Marathon plans
to ask of its tiny neighbor.
"I understand this is a lit-
tle bit of a sticker shock for
them. We're not necessarily
close-minded, but we need to
be in a position that the city
of Marathon residents are not


augmenting the residents of
Key Colony Beach. I have
faith we'll get there," he said.
The two cities agreed to a
three-year pact in 2007 -
with two options for three-
year renewals - that says
Key Colony will get fire serv-
ice from. Marathon in return
for paying a percentage of
Marathon Fire Rescue's costs
based on the "just value" of a
property, or taxable land
value minus homestead or
any other exemptions.
Hemstadt's report to the
City Council Tuesday said
city staff 'believes Key
Colony Beach should pay
roughly $667,000 next fiscal
year to receive fire and EMS
service from Marathon. This
year it pays $414,081.
Key Colony Mayor Ron
Sutton said that city's com-
mission met Thursday and


decided to explore its
options. That includes either
paying Monroe County Fire
Rescue for service or starting
its own fire department.
"We are looking at our
options besides Marathon.
I'm hoping we can negotiate
something with them but we
have to prepare ourselves if
we can't," Sutton said. "We
will start forward trying go
down each path with what
numbers we can come up
with from the county and to
do it on our own."
Marathon Finance
Director Peter Rosasco told
the Keynoter he put the new
fire-fee formula together
assuming Key Colony's par-
ticipation in equipment
replacement, firehouse costs
and administrative overhead.
"We reworked the formu-
la to include roughly 20 per-


cent of those parts of the
budget and that did result in a
figure of about 667,000.
That's just a number. Where
the council decides they want
to go, that's going to be a pol-
icy decision," Rosasco said.
Sutton said starting a fire
department of its own would
be a large undertaking, but
one the city must consider.
He said a Public Works
building on 8th Street can be
converted into a station.
"Going into it ourselves,
that would be a long-term
venture. I hope Marathon is
thinking about that because
it's a lot of money they're
putting back on their taxpay-
ers," Sutton said.
The Marathon council
told Hemstadt to begin nego-
tiations with Key Colony
Beach. He said he'll send
Key Colony officials a letter.


It wants input
on future noise
from new jets
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

About two dozen people
turned out over two days and
four sessions to offer input to
U.S. Navy officials starting to
prepare an environmental
impact statement that would
help direct future operations
at Naval Air Station Key West
and its Boca Chica Field.
NAS Key West spokes-
man Jim Brooks called the
turnout "disappointing but
not unexpected."
"I think if we had gotten a
better turnout, we would've
seen different things," he told
the Keynoter. "Obviously,
people are concerned about
[jet] noise. And 'what does
this all mean; are there
changes coming?'"
In short: Probably.
Government agencies pre-
pare. EIS reports both on a
project-specific basis and to
forecast and prepare for long-
term operational needs.
"It's also done periodical-
ly," Brooks said, "in this case
because we're looking down
the road and seeing new air-
craft coming down in-the line

That's the F-35C

"There is no comprehen-
sive noise data yet, and that's
the big thing," Brooks said,
noting that is part of the EIS
process. "There is some pre-
liminary noise data from the
Air Force version that would
indicate the noise is compa-
rable to aircraft already in the
inventory."
Some Lower Keys resi-
dents, led by the M-10
Coalition, a collection . of
homeowners associations,
complain that the F/A-18 is
way too loud as it is.
"All I have heard is basi-
cally is that it's loud like the
F/A-18," coalition steering
committee member Don
Riggs said. "Whether it is
significantly louder than the
F/A-18, which is plenty loud
already, I don't know. The
F/A-18 is significantly loud
enough to do damage to hear-
ing. Anything louder, I don't
know if it changes much."
Riggs is referring to sound
data collected by some
Lower Keys homeowners
using measuring equipment.
They say the data indicates
planes flying within 200 feet
to 1,000 feet above their
homes emit noise up to 120
decibels. Noise above 84
decibels is considered haz-
ardous to hearing." \
He said the M-10
Coalition would submit input
via a letter, which would
include suggestions that the
Navy, put sound monitoring
equipment in residential
areas to gather data, as
opposed to using sound mod-

the possibility that the Navy

KEY LARGO OCEA


County pre

co-op boar
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

The county sent a strong
message to the board of
directors of a Key Largo RV
park that any attempt to
change a site plan approved
in 2007 could delay develop-
ment there for at least anoth-
er three years.
In a letter dated May 19,
Townsley Schwab, the
Monroe County director of
planning and environmental
resources, warned Gisele
Pino, president of the Key
Largo Ocean Resort board of
directors, that the site plan
cannot be altered without
going through a niountain of
paperwork and several
bureaucratic channels.
Recent changes submitted
by the board to the county
could require zoning changes
and changes to an approved
development agreement.
Even without litigation chal-
lenging the plan, approval
could take .several years,
Schwab wrote.
"Therefore, any proposed
site plan use not consistent
with the existing develop-
ment agreement, comnprehen-
sive plan and zoning will
take approximately three
years to obtain approval,
none of which can or will be
guaranteed by the county.
Nor can the county predict it
'there may, be appeal of any
decision of the county, which
could delay any action or
approval even further,"
Schwab wrote.
Pino could not be reached
for comment.
Key Largo Ocean Resort
has been the subject of
decades of legal battles
between the county and the
old board of directors
because of several non-nego-
tiable building and fire-code
violations. The county had a
lien against the RV co-op
until the two parties agreed to
a development agreement in
2005 and the site plan in
2007. It calls for razing all of
the more than 300 structures
on the 22-acre oceanfront
property at mile marker 94.8
and replacing them with per-
manent modular homes.
Schwab wrote that the site
plan approved by the
Planning Commission in
2007 "is the only approved
site plan that authorizes the
redevelopment of KLOR."
That plan was developed by
county planners and members
of the board of directors who

"That is exactly the input

cerns," Brooks said. "The

ing here. It's the premier area
for air-to-air training."

were recalled in December
2009. The current five-mem-
ber board has indicated the
park can come into compli-
ance without completely
destroying what's there now.
County officials disagree.
Schwab's letter , was
specifically responding to a
letter the current board sent to
its more than 280 sharehold-
ers on May 17 indicating the
site plan would be changed to
ensure all lots were the same
size, and that the Planning

changes for review.
Schwab wrote that plan-

tion 'received,' which was
stamped on. the revised site
plan given to the county plan-
ning staff, in no way connoted
any formal or informal
approval of that site plan."
Eduardo Calil, the archi-
tect of the site plan, said in an
interview that the board is
misleading shareholders by
telling them anything other
than changing the plan means
going back to step one.
"The development agree-
ment says- that when you
make changes,to the plan,
you have to start over.
They've basically done 1
percent of the work that
needs to be done," he said.
That means starting by sub-
mitting an application to the
Planning Department, whigh
has 15 working days to accept
or reject it. If there are any
changes that need to be made,
the time period is reset to the
beginning. Then planning staff
has 10 working days to sched-
ule the application for review
at a Development Review
Committee meeting. If the
committee agrees, the applica-
tion moves on to a Planning
Commission hearing.
Both the meeting and
hearing are public and need
to be advertised,' a process
that can take months,
Schwab wrote.
After the hearing, the
Planning Department has 30
days to draft a resolution
reflecting the commission's
decision. After the chairman
of the commission signs the
resolution, there is a 30-day
appeal period. If anyone files
an appeal, there is a mini-
mum six-month administra-
tive process.

Tighter budgets

likely coming

Monroe County property values
will be down 14 percent next year,
meaning tough decisions coming

You think things are tough now? Get ready for some
more hard times.
On today's Page 1, reporter Ryan McCarthy reports
that the overall value of taxable land in Monroe County
is expected to drop a whopping 14 percent, falling to
$19.656 billion in the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1 from
$22.324 billion in the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30.
The gloomy numbers come from Karl Borglum, the
respected No. 2 in the Monroe County Property
Appraiser's Office.
This might be good news for prospective home-buy-
,ers. But it's certainly terrible news for residents who
will likely see their property taxes increase while seeing
government services shrink.
We've seen this before, and the effects are very tangi-
ble. It's why the County Commission closed the public
libraries on Mondays in 2008. There simply wasn't
enough money. They haven't opened on Mondays since.
When times were fat, local taxing authorities could
brag that they were keeping the tax rates down because
the assessments were so high. Now we might very well
see the reverse - tax rates going up because the assess-
ments have fallen.
The budget season is quickly approaching, and local
governments are already starting to plan. We hope our
elected officials don't take tho attitude that we cut this
and we cut that to keep taxes down, so don't complain.
Rather, we like what's happening in Marathon,
where City Manager Roger Hemst4dt says he's putting
the city government on an austerity program that will
include cutting employee travel. "We're going to do a
top-to-bottom scrub of the budget," he said.
That's what businesses have been doing since the
economy went south when the real estate market tanked,
and that's what the local taxing authorities - are you
listening, Florida Keys Mosquito Control District? -
should be doing as they craft their 2010-11 budgets.
Look inward for cuts, not outward for cuts in services.

Heed the advice: Get a plan

We don't have to tell you what Tuesday is, because
you already know.
It's the start of the six-month hurricane season, and
the feds' prediction for this year isn't good: Three to
seven hurricanes of Category 3 or higher, up to 14 hur-
ricanes overall, and up to 23 named storms.
We've been pretty lucky since the 2004 and 2005
:seasons, when we were affected by eight hurricanes,
'notably Wilma in October 2005.. Since then, we've
barely felt a tick.
But it's never good to grow complacent, and we urge
everyone to heed the state's mantra: Get a plan.
In today's Keynoter, you'll find our annual hurricane
preparation guide. It contains all kinds of useful infor-
:mation - as well as firsthand stories from survivors of
:Donna in 1960 and Betsy in 1965. And on Page 1,
Reporter Kevin Wadlow relates the firsthand accounts of
Islamorada residents who survived the 1935 Labor Day
storm that killed more than 400 people in the Keys.
Read their stories. They best explain why getting a
plan early is the best thing you can do.

Wonka was wonderful
Due to everyone's generous donations and support, our Willie
Wonka Chocolate Festival, a true Key West event and fundrais-
er, was an enormous success. The beautiful Southernmost House
was alive with hundreds of locals and visitors who enjoyed
,chocolate, music, food donated by local restaurants and hotels,
performers from our schools, and balloons.
The weather was picture perfect. The chocolate fountain
filled the air with a sweet aroma and the entire event was
pulled together through collaborative efforts of volunteers,
from board members of the Cancer Foundation of the Florida
Keys along with their spouses, to First State Bank employees,
,Monroe County School District employees, Sheriff's Office
employees, students from local schools, Star of the Sea
Foundation members, and cancer survivors.
The reason for this letter is to thank the businesses and
; individuals. Without their involvement, this event would not
Shave had a chance at success. In these tough and difficult eco-
Snomic times, everyone's time, talents and donations are even
More of a gift. The generosity is deeply appreciated.
SLast year the Cancer Foundation was assisting 10 to 15
Cancer patients monthly, averaging $10,000 to $15,000, pay-
ing rents and utility bills from Key West to Key Largo. Today
we are helping an average of 25 patients per month, averag-
ing $20,000 to $25,000. This number continues to rise as the
Economy struggles.
We are amazed at everyone's support, and most grateful
for the donations. Without you, we could not do what we do.

Cancer Foundation
of the Florida Keys

LETTERS TO M- F HUR
Pray for neighbors
The following was drafted by the
entire Upper Keys Ministerial Assoc-
iation:
The Plantation Key Convalescent
Center has been a significant asset for
our community over the years. Not
only did a number of our residents live
there, many of them have family here
in the Keys, which was an important
factor in choosing this location for
nursing-home services.
It has also been a place where our
residents have gone following hospital
stays for in-patient rehabilitation. We
are sure that the 155 people employed
there have families and dependents
that have been thankful for their emp-
loyment.
The Keys community, in general,
has benefited from having this nursing
home/rehabilitation center for many
years. As many of you have learned, it
closed its doors as of May 21. Even if
someone purchases it, they will not be
able to get their Medicaid license in
that short of time. Meanwhile, mem-
bers of our community, whom which
we have covenanted with God to love
and provide with spiritual leadership,
are suffering from stress, shock, fear,
anger, resentment, helplessness and
more, on top of an already-failing eco-
nomy, joblessness; foreclosures, and
lack of affordable health insurance.
We look forward to an improved
nursing home and rehabilitation center

reopen it, although when isn't clear.


care as a result of the state Agency for
Health Care Administration's actions.
As your spiritual leaders, we call on
everyone to express this community's
sincere and immediate need for con-
valescent services.
Meanwhile, you can help by pro-
viding honest, active and generous
support to your neighbors who are suf-
fering the effects of this event. Offer
transportation, food, and home and car
repairs to one another as gracious gifts
from one beloved to another. Offer


jobs, babysitting services, whatever
these 155 newly unemployed neigh-
bors need to get back on their feet.
Find ways to buy the vineyard.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I
give to you. I do not give to you as the
world gives. Do not let your hearts be
troubled, and do not let them be
afraid." (John 14)

CELEBRATING OUR PAST


Jackie Sweeting poses at McKee's Museum of Sunken Treasure in Islamorada in 1957.Treasure salvor Art McKee, a
New Jersey native who moved to Florida at age 26 in 1936, opened the museum to show off the artifacts he collected
from Keys waters. He died in 1979.The complex, at mile marker 86.7, later was the Treasure Village retail center and,
in 2006, became home to the Treasure Village Montessori School, which had moved south from Key Largo. Betsey
the giant lobster formerly stood guard at Treasure Village but is now across U.S. 1 at the Rain Barrel.


Fishermen's cares
Caring, commitment and dedica-
tion are more than just words. They
are the minimum requirements neces-
sary to work at Fishermen's Hospital.
The week of May 9 through 16 has
been considered National Hospital
Week for more than 80 years. The
leadership at Fishermen's Hospital
would like to take this opportunity to
express our gratitude and appreciation
for the support we receive from our
community, our health-care workers
and the patients that we serve.
Hospital Week is only one week
out of the year, but it brings with ,it a
reminder of our daily community spir-
it, our commitment to be the best that
we can be, and to be there when you
need us. Our physicians and staff
strive to provide the very best safe,
quality care. This care is reflected in
our continued excellent Gallup cus-
tomer-service rankings.
The leadership of Fishermen's
Hospital wants to take this opportuni-
ty to say thank you to each and every
member of this community for their
support. During National Hospital
Week and every week, we are proud to
be a vital part of this incredible com-
munity.

Great medical care
My husband John and I are deeply
indebted for the excellent care that
Fishermen's Hospital gave me from
May 9 to 11 under the care of Dr.
Steven Smith. The Marathon Fire
Rescue squad did a very fine job, too.
We wish we could acknowledge
everyone who took splendid care of
me. Please accept our deepest thanks.

Thanks for fundraising
We wish to express our sincere
thanks to all the paddlers and commu-
nity sponsors who raised money and


awareness, for Heron-Peacock

Bay dragon boat races. The event was
a huge success and a lot of fun.
We are most grateful for the contin-
uing support of Mandy Bowers, the
Hurricane Grille and top fundraiser
Dave Condra. The proceeds will be
used to maintain our programs at the
Heron and Peacock apartments, which
offer housing and support to men and
women with mental illness to promote
recovery and a successful life in the
community.

Hospitality shines
Back in April, we were staying in
Marathon when our stay was unex-
pectedly extended by the cancelled
flights when the Icelandic volcano
erupted and closed United Kingdom
airspace
We were in a rental property in
Marathon through Dolphin Rentals,
and we would like to thank Mary for
her thoughtfulness in letting us stay on
the property with a really good deal
that really helped us out. It was a
stressful time, as we were unsure
when we could get home, and Mary's
concern and hospitality was great.
We had a lovely holiday in Mara-
thon and I really enjoyed the Seven
Mile Bridge Run, so thanks to Bobbie
Bayles and the rest of the team for a
brilliantly organized run. I now have a
run T-shirt that is unique in England.
Once again, thanks, and we will
keep our fingers crossed that you
don't have any problems from the
Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

More recycling
' 1 moved to Key West last October
and I'm very glad I did. But there is
one glaring trouble spot, and that is
recycling.
The residents of Key West and the


local companies seem to be doing
their part. But the big national food
chains (Burger King, McDonald's,
KFC, etc.) do not. They do not have
any recycle bins; all the customers'
garbage goes in one receptacle. This
shows they do not recycle.
Every one of those restaurants in
one day uses more recyclables than
any Key West locals and other busi-
nesses would use in one, month, yet
nobody brings up this fact.
The City Commission, the mayor
and the newspapers don't mention one
word about this. Why?

Join the pooches
The Friends of the Marathon Dog
Park are delighted with the enthusias-
tic response the park has received
since it officially opened on, Jan. 2.
Residents as well as visitors to
Marathon are bringing their dogs to
enjoy the park -and making sure that
we all know how happy they are with
this new asset to our city.
If you haven't been to the park late-
ly, you'll be pleased to see that new
signs have been installed. One provides
a brief account of how the park came
into existence and salutes the individu-
als and companies that donated $250 or
more in 2009. The other sign lists some
rules and etiquettet" so that we can all
derive maximum enjoyment. We'd like
to thank Randy Mearns of Marathon
Electric and Sign, Art Stephens of
K.E.M. Enterprises, Signs by Renee,
Drew Caterson, Cora Baggs, Maye
Baggs and Rick Sall for all of their help
in making and installing these signs.
We are currently investigating some
upgrades/improvements for the park
and will be planning new fundraising
events. Anyone who would like to join
our determined group of dog lovers, or
who would like to make a donation to
support ongoing efforts, is more than
welcome. Please send us an e-mail to

Keys, Dade credit unions merging


Deal will allow
federal regulators
to step back
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

The Dade County Federal
Credit Union is merging
with Keys Federal 'Credit
Union in a deal being bro-
kered by federal regulators.
The details of the merger
- likely to be complete
June 30 - are not being dis-
closed.
"For Keys Federal mem-
bers and employees, it will
be business as usual,"
George Joseph, president
and chief executive officer of
the Dade County Federal
Credit Union said, on Friday.
However, some opera-


tional positions in the Keys
will be eliminated to avoid
duplicating work being done
in Miami-Dade. Joseph said
he couldn't provide specifics
about the numbers of
employees affected, but said
they would receive a sever-
ance package.
The merger, announced:
earlier this week, has the
blessing of the National
Credit Union Administration,
an independent federal
agency that regulates and
supervises federally char-
tered credit unions.
The NCUA has been
overseeing Keys Federal
since September 2009, when
the board of directors was
dissolved as part of what
was described as a "volun-
tary conservatorship" sought
by some members of the
board and management.


Shortly after, then-CEO Bob
Watson left his post.
Joseph said it's likely that
loan defaults and delinquen-
cies would have gobbled up
Keys Federal's reserves if
another entity didn't step in.
-"I don't want to be
looked upon as the bad guy,"
Joseph said. "If it wasn't us,
it was going-to be someone
else."
Joseph said the transition
would be as seamless and
transparent as possible.
"The thing that members
are going to notice first are
the additional products and
services," said Keys
Federal's Scott Duszynski,
who is acting CEO. What
the community at large will
notice, he said, is an imme-
diate increase in the credit
union's generosity.
During the conservator-


ship, Keys Federal's lending
- and most of its giving -
ground to a halt. That's
going to change, Joseph and
Duszynski said.
Dade County Federal was
one of about a half-dozen
looking at Keys Federal,
Joseph said. He said the
NCUA suggested it do so
because of its proximity.
Keys Federal has assets
of $156 million, 14,000
members, 50 employees and
five branches. Dade County
Federal has assets of $505
million, 90,000 members,
200 employees and 11
branches.
"I don't regret what we
did," said former Keys
Federal board member Andy
Griffiths, declining to detail
the circumstances that led to
the board's decision to call
in the NCUA.


But news of the merger is
bittersweet for Griffiths,
who's been a credit union
member for 25 years and was
a board member for 11 years.
He said he hoped the
local operation would main-
tain autonomy. "I'm sure it's
going to be for the best," he
said. "I just hope they can
keep the name."
Indeed, while Keys
Federal will become a part
of Dade County Federal,
Joseph said he wants to
retain the Keys Federal
name for the local branches,
and he's stressing the impor-
tance of that to the NCUA.
Consumers are often
attracted to credit unions in
part because decisions are
made locally, and Joseph said
that would not change either.
Lending and marketing
decisions will continue to be


made by people in the Keys
who understand the commu-
nity, he said.
Joseph said Duszynski,
currently chief financial
officer and acting CEO,
would take on a key role
.with the larger credit union
once the merger is complete.
Joseph said there eventu-
ally would be Keys repre-
sentation on the merged
credit union's board.
Once the merger's com-
plete, the challenge will be
to deal with bad debts and
sell off foreclosed proper-
ties, Joseph said. As part of
its due diligence, the larger
credit union looked at a
snapshot of the smaller one's
various portfolios, but he
said he doesn't yet have a
total dollar value on the
items that need to be dealt
with.

Firearms store opens indoor gun range in Key Largo


Kiffney's moves
into former
Kraus' location
By GARY PHILLIPS
gphillips@keysreporter.com
With expanded retail
space and new four-lane
indoor pistol range, Kiffney's
Firearms in Key Largo has
changed locations and dou-
bled in size.
The gun dealer recently
moved from a 2,700-square-
foot unit at Central Plaza at
mile marker 103 to a 5,500-
square-foot facility at mile
marker 106 bayside, the for-
mer location of Kraus'
Supermarket.
The former supermarket
sat empty for more than two
- years as the shopping cen-
ter's owner, Centennial
Bank, tried to find a new
occupant after a foreclosure.
In December, Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Real Estate's
Curtis Skomp brokered a $2
million deal for the 18,000-
square-foot shopping 'center.
It's now owned by La Jolla,
Calif.-based Key Largo
Shopping Center LLC.
Firearms store owner
Tom Kiffney, who's a ser-
geant with the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office,
declined to give a dollar
amount for the extensive
remodeling at the new store,
but did call it "quite a lot."
Kiffney said the indoor
range is expected to be

will be $15 for a half hour.
The range is for handguns

The store still carries an

guns, rifles and handguns,

We Will Make This Right.


BP has taken full responsibility for cleaning up the spill in the Gulf
of Mexico.

Stopping the leak will be a major step, but only a start. We know
that our responsibility goes much further.

Our commitment to the environment.
Our job now is to prevent as much environmental damage caused
by this spill as we can. Over 1,100 boats, including local fishing
fleets, are collecting the oil by skimming and other methods. More
than two million feet of boom are in place to protect the shoreline.
Where oil has reached the shore, we are cleaning it up.

Our commitment to the people of the Gulf.
This spill and the hardships endured by Gulf families and businesses
never should have happened. The region is home to thousands of
BP employees, so we also-feel the impact.

We have been paying all legitimate claims for economic loss and
will continue to do so. We will not be limited by a spending cap.
We have 18 claims offices in operation across the Gulf. More
than 9,000 claims have been paid, including millions of dollars to
thousands of fishermen.

We've provided $170 million to support the response and
tourism in the region. And our efforts will not come at any
cost to taxpayers.

Our commitment to you.
Whether you've been affected personally or you are following this
from a distance, we understand that our responsibility includes
keeping you informed. You expect us to make this right. We will.

For the most current information, please visit the following BP and
joint U.S. Government/BP websites:

www.bp.com
www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com

FLORIDA KEYS FISHING


Fishing license-free



this weekend, next


Action taken
to battle
misperceptions
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
To get lines in the water,
Florida declared this week-
end and next as free fishing
weekends, with no saltwater
license required.
The no-license weekends
emphasize that despite the
ongoing BP oil spill in the
northern Gulf of Mexico,
Florida's "beaches are clean
[and] the fish are biting,"
Gov. Charlie Crist said in a
Friday statement.
Under the license waiver,
all resident and visiting
anglers, can fish the three
days of the Memorial Day
holiday weekend, today
through Monday, and again


next weekend,' June 5 and
June 6.
All other fishing rules,
size limits and bag limits
apply.
"Gov. Crist's actions to
offer free fishing this week-
end and next will do wonders
for our business communities
that have been suffering can-
cellations since the .oil spill
started," said Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission Chairman
Rodney Barreto, a part-time
Key Largo resident. '
"We aren't experiencing
any oil impacts here, and the
fact remains -that Florida is
open for business," Barreto
said.
People in businesses relat-
ed to sportfishing told the
FWC they are "very con-
cemed about inaccurate pub-
lic perceptions regarding the
condition of Florida's fish-
eries aud the state's marine
environment," FWC


spokesman Lee Schlesinger
said. "People are canceling
trips and there is absolutely
no reason for that."
Memorial Day weekend
also marks the start of the
summer boating season, with
the FWC and U.S. Coast
Guard urging added caution
during busy times on the
water.
The two agencies last
week staged the Life Jackets
for Life tour throughout
Florida to promote proper
use of personal flotation
devices.
"Wearing life jackets
saves lives," said FWC Capt.
Carol Keyser, head of the
Boating Safety Unit. "The
wide variety of comfortable,
affordable and stylish life
jackets on the market today
offers Floridians of all ages
the protection they need out
on the water."
Marine officers also
reminded boaters to never


overload a boat, maintain a
proper lookout and never use
alcohol or drugs while oper-
ating a boat.
The FWC noted that state
law on the need for, the
Boating Safety Education ID
Card changed this year.
Current law requires any-
one born on or after Jan. 1,
1988, to carry a Boating
Safety Education ID Card to
legally operate a boat in
Florida. Those needing the
card qualify from a Coast
Guard Auxiliary safe-boating
class, or can take an online
course that results in certifi-
cation (cost approximately
$30).
Adults not legally
required to have the educa-
tion-certification also can
obtain one.
In 2009, the state issued,
10,731 education certifica-
tions to people under age 21,
and 20,853 over all, accord-
ing to the FWC.

A new option for trout


Board looks
to intervene,
accountability
By REV. RANDOLPH BECKER
Keynoter Contributor "
The story is too familiar.
A youth in a Key West
neighborhood begins to run
with the wrong crowd. Or
maybe he or she is feeling angry
about a recent loss or disruption
in his or her life. It might be that
he or she doesn't feel supported
or cared about, and acts out.
The end result is that these
youth make a mistake, and do
something illegal. It may hap-
pen in school, on the play-
ground, in someone else's
house, anywhere. A bad
choice now means a big legal
problem, and the likelihood of
a court record that will deeply
influence their future.
Some go the route of denial
because they don't think there
is any other option. Now,
thanks to the Neighborhood
Accountability Board in Key
West, there is an option.
It's a diversion program for
kids with no previous criminal

The Monroe County State
Attorney's Office, working

to the board's program. That
decision is made based on the
circumstances of the alleged
crime and the willingness of
the accused to take responsi-
bility for his or her actions.
Once referred to the

Board, the youth's future shifts

the board can
help ensure
V that the
youth will
not offend a
l "' second time.
, "When I
first meet
BISHOP-BECKER youth and
their family or guardian,"
Bishop-Becker notes, "they
are often frightened. They may
have spent some time in the
juvenile detention facility and
suddenly they are in the judi-
cial world. It is hard for them
to realize that we are here to
help them, not punish them.
But the first step is that they
want to help themselves."
Bishop-Becker, a licensed
professional counselor, is the
first person a potential Nation-
al Accountability Board par-
ticipant will meet beyond the
traditional justice system.
A subsequent meeting with
the whole Neighborhood
Accountability Board will
offer the youth the opportuni-
ty to face about 10 representa-
tives of the community, to
take responsibility for her or
his actions, and to hear how
those actions have hurt others.


"Before the board meets
the youth and family, I make
a case presentation, which
includes my recommenda-
tions for their program based
not only on their problems,
but also on their potential,"
Bishop-Becker says.
The admission and under-
standing of the criminal be-
havior is only the beginning.
The board will then craft a
90-day program specially re-
sponding to details of the case.
Usual elements of a program
include letters of apology to
victims, supervised communi-
ty service, strictly monitored
nightly curfew, essays on the
effects of crime on the commu-
nity, a character enhancement
curriculum that focuses on
building self-esteem and learn-
ing to make better choices, and
consistent school attendance
and passing grades.
Mandatory mentoring,
tutoring, counseling, random
testing for illegal substances,
and restitution may also be part
of the individualized program.
To continue in the program,
the youth must complete all
requirements in a timely man-
ner and avoid any additional
criminal charges. At the com-

Golf on the water in full swing


Tournaments
raise money
for nonprofits

Keynoter Staff

It's not only the PGA
that's in full golf swing. The
Conch Life Scramble series
of tournaments in the Keys is
also in full tour mode.
What's the Conch Life
Scramble? Golf on the water.
Teams of five people on a
boat - four players, one
designated driver - motor
from bar to bar, where some-
thing resembling a driving
range awaits. Out about 50
yards are two floating rings
with flags in them.
At each stop, the boaters
disembark, take their whacks,
mark their scores, have some
food and drinks, then hit the
next hole, or bar. The balls
are biodegradable.
Teams pay $500 each -
$100 per person, generally
the same cost to play any real
golf tournament in the Keys.
The purpose of the Conch
Life Scramble is to organize
golf-on-the-water tourna-
ments to raise direct-service
money for local nonprofits.
The Key Largo tourna-
ment was May 1 and bene-
fited Voices for Florida Keys
Children, which works with
the courts' Guardian Ad
Litem Program, and the Key
Largo Rotary.
The Islamorada Conch
Life Scramble is played on
July 17, with the kickoff the


Ciegler is named


Point of Light


Governor lauds
volunteer at
Fort Taylor

Gov. Charlie Crist on
Wednesday recognized
Bonnie Ciegler of Key
West as a Governor's Point
of Light.
"Bonnie's dedication to
preserving Key West's nat-
ural resources sets a posi-
tive example of community
leadership," Crist said.
"Her service in promoting
environmental awareness
will continue to have an
impact for many year to
come."
For 19 years, Ciegler
has been a volunteer at Fort
Zachary Taylor State Park
in Key West. With exten-
sive knowledge of plant
and animal life and the
fort's history, she has creat-
ed many educational


opportunities for park x is, i-
ors and staff. Ciegler ha�_
also trained and led numer-
ous groups in exotic-plant
removal projects.
Her knowledge of land-
scaping and utility install-
ation inspired her to create
and cultivate a butterfly
garden at the park.
"Bonnie has been an
integral part of Fort Taylor
since 1991," said David
Foster, park manager. "She
is a valued member of our
park family and a tremen-
dous asset, good friend and
volunteer who. epitomizes
what the spirit of giving is
all about."
Under the Points of
Light program, a panel of
judges comprising leaders
in the areas of volunteerism
and service evaluate nomi-
nations and make recom-
mendations to the gover-
nor. Florida's Foundation
manages the program.

Ceremony tonight
for African slaves

The 150th anniversary
of the African cemetery at
Higgs Beach in Key West
will be marked with an
observance at 6 tonight at
the beach, on Atlantic
Boulevard between White
Street and the West
Martello Tower.
For three months in
1860, nearly 1,500
Africans were temporarily
housed near Fort Zachary
Taylor in Key West after
the U.S. Navy captured
three slave ships bound for
Cuba.
At the time, Key West
had only 3,000 residents,
who pitched in and built
shelters, donated clothing
and provided food and
medical care.
Most, of the Africans
were sent back to Liberia,
but at least 295 of them
ultimately died from vari-
ous diseases and were
buried at the beach.

Former Keys
resident pens
a thriller

T. Rafael Cimino, author
of "Mid Ocean," spent most
of his childhood and young
adult years living in the
Upper Keys. Twenty-five
years later, he is returning
with his fictional drama
about smuggling and police
corruption in hand, ready to
answer mounting questions
from locals who lived the
real-life saga that spurred


his tale of
fiction.

'Mid Ocean' by T. Rafael Cimino
Having grown up in the Florida Keys,T. Rafael Cimino
captures the lifestyle and mentality of the locals with ease.
Set in 1984, "Mid Ocean" brings to us the story of Joel
Kenyon, a freshman U.S. Customs agent assigned to the
Florida Keys, but it is also the story of the Alazar family of
Homestead, Cuban drug runners making a living on the
other side of the law.
References to familiar landmarks, and the infamous
Conch Republic secession in 1982, make this a delightful
read for locals while informing and intriguing the tourists.
With intertwining storylines, the perspectives of both law
enforcer and lawbreaker bring the reader through an
adventure that they won't want to miss.


- Arielle D'Ornellas

Design flies into Key West

Popular Key West artist Rick Worth touched up this mural on the older part of the terminal.


New terminal

is transformed
into gallery

As well as a convenient
arrival and departure point
for visitors, Key West
International Airport is now
a display venue for an
eclectic collection of works
by talented Florida Keys
artists.
The Florida Keys
Council of the Arts and the
county's Art in Public
Places committee spear-
headed the installation of
paintings, sculptures and
other pieces in the airport's
recently built and renovated,
terminals.
Their vision was to dis-
play art that communicated
the flavor of the Florida
Keys while exuding wel-
come, calm for harried trav-
elers and a sense of place.
Some projects were created
specifically for the airport,
and others are on loan as
part of a rotating exhibit.
"The arts council worked
with many local artists to.
commission pieces that
were very site-specific,"
said Elizabeth Young, the
council's executive director.
"We were really anxious
and eager to share the rich
cultural history of the
Florida Keys -- the light and
the beauty -- to remind peo-:
ple Why they're here and, if
they're leaving, why they
want to come back."
Among the standout
pieces are a large-scale

Festival celebrates


Cuban heritage

Key West has
longtime ties
to the island


The 11th annual Cuban
American Heritage Festi-
val lights up Key West this
weekend, highlighting the
longstanding relationship
between the Southernmost
City and the island nation.
Key West was the site
of a flourishing cigar ;
industry in the mid- to late
1800s, when the city wel-
comed thousands of Cuban
immigrants seeking greater
personal and political free-
dom. The family-oriented
Cuban American Heritage
Festival showcases the-
vibrant culture and cus-
toms they brought with
them to Key West.
At 6:30 p.m. May 29,
the El Meson de Pepe
building at 410 Wall St., at
Mallory Square, is to be
dedicated as a historic site
and receive a marker that
recognizes its unique place
in Key West history. The
building will become a
stop on the new Key West
Historic Marker Tour.


The Cuban American Heritage Festival features a
conga-line celebration. This, from last year; shows the
joy the festival brings to celebrants.


The brick structure,
fronting on Key West
Harbor, is a former ware-
house constructed in the
late 1800s. As well as the
popular restaurant, it now
is home to a cigar empori-
tun, large-scale artwork
reproduced from pieces by
Cuban-American folk artist
Mario Sanchez and memo-


rabilia that recalls Key
West's Cuban heritage.
At 7 p.m. the same day,
El Meson hosts a cigar
dinner and silent auction
that celebrate Key West's
cigar-making legacy.
Presented by the Fuente
Newman Cigar Co., the
night is to include a full
dinner, wine and a selec-
tion of fine cigars. Cost is
$75 per person. For reser-
vations, call Jose Diaz at
360-0738.
The festival concludes
Sunday with a traditional
domino contest. The fun-
filled challenge is set for
5:30 p.m. at 1075 Duval
St. For details, call 305-
294-2224.

iety of sizes are accepted - gen-
erally art chosen is about 18
