Roth hangs up badge

Longtime sheriff
calls it a career. ,.
after 43 years
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmrnccarthy@keynoter.com


Another inch or two, and Rick
Roth likely never would have
become a five-term sheriff in
Monroe County.
Falling just short literally
- of a now-abolished 5-foot-10
minimum height requirement for
police officers in his home state
of Minnesota, Roth instead head-
ed south to begin what became a
decorated career with the
Sheriff's Office in 1965.
Forty-three years later, the 70-
year-old radio dispatcher turned
sheriff is giving up the badge and
gun in favor of a miter saw and
ratchet. He'll officially retire
from law enforcement when Bob
Peryam is sworn in at 10 a.m.
Tuesday.
"I've been sheriff for 18 years
and if I could just keep this job on
a year-to-year basis, that would
be alright," Roth said. Sheriffs
are elected to four-year terms.
"I feel great, but it's just time
and the department needs some
new blood and new ideas," he said.
Roth said he plans to spend
most of his days woodworking in
a 500-square-foot studio being
built on top of a garage at his
Grassy Key home. He's also in
the market for a 1965 Mustang
convertible if anyone has one sit-
ting around another of his pas-
sions is refurbishing old cars.
The 1942 Jeep and 1975
Corvette are already finished.
Roth and wife Sandi owned a
'65 Mustang in 1966 and beat it
up pretty good. Who knew it
would one day become a collec-
tor's item, they joked.
One thing he definitely won't
be doing is sitting around. That's
evidenced by the couple's spa-
cious property, dotted with proj-
ects including a fishpond and

Cheeca closed indefinitely


Fire forces
guests to find
rooms elsewhere
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The high-end Cheeca Lodge
Resort and Spa in Islamorada
remains shut indefinitely fol-
lowing a New Year's Eve fire in
the resort's main building.
Employees said nearly all of
the 199 guest rooms were full for
what is historically the busiest
week in the Upper Keys. No one
was reportedly injured in the


fire, damage from which is esti-
mated at more than $10 million.
"We were just seated at 9:30
in the main dining room for the
New Year's Eve thing when the
fire alarm went off," said guest
Anthony Conselice. "At first we
thought it was a false alarm, but
then we saw the flames."
"I'm just glad everybody got
out safely," said guest Vicki
Lehrhoff of Virginia. "No casu-
alties. That's a miracle."
On Thursday, as firefighters
were still working to extinguish
remaining flames, Cheeca
employees were taken off their


usual jobs in payroll, IT and
other departments and were
directing traffic at the resort's
main gate and working cell
phones to find guests new rooms.
The Islamorada Chamber of
Commerce helped find open
hotel rooms from Key West to
Ocean Reef, and even in Miami
for guests planning to fly out.
"We were supposed to be
closed New Year's Day, but we
opened and when we did, the
calls started coming in from
hotels with five rooms here, three
rooms there," chamber Executive
Director Judy Hull said.

Sprinklers help douse flames


CHEECA / From 1

The nearby Green Turtle Inn
offered free food and beverages
to firefighters and guests, and
shirts to guests who lost clothes.
"Some of the guests left Cheeca
and lost all their belongings, so
some of our stores were giving dis-
counts and helping out any way
they could," Hull said. "It's
impressive the way the community
has pulled together to help."
Resort officials advise travel-
ers with Cheeca reservations to
call (800) 327-2888 to determine
the resort's status. A resort
spokeswoman said vacationers
who cannot be accommodated
would receive, a full refund and
help with travel plans to other
Keys resorts.

A major fire
Islamorada Fire Chief William
Wagner said the fire was one of
worst in the Keys in 20 years. It
appears to have started just
before 10 p.m. Wednesday on a
thatch roof outside of the main
building, possibly due to ciga-
rette embers or fireworks sparks.
The building houses adminis-
trative offices, a guest lobby, two
restaurants, bars, a conference
center and 49 guest rooms.
"It was very serious. It looks

This shows the fire damage to the main building. There was
also smoke and water damage at Cheeca Lodge, which is
closed indefinitely so a damage assessment can be done
and repairs made.


like it totaled the building. The
tiki bar thatch when up [in flames]
on both sides, and then it went
into the rooms," said Wagner, who
acted as incident commander and
directed nearly 80 firefighters and
emergency responders that came
from as far as the Lower Keys and
Miami-Dade.
"We grabbed our kids and ran


out," said Mike Hughes of
Naples, who was staying in a
room on the second floor, near
where the fire began. "Embers
were falling on our heads and I
was worried our clothing would
catch on fire. It was terrifying."
Wagner said the fire quickly
spread up the building's walls,
burning guest rooms but sparing
most of the resort's administra-
tive offices. However, most of the
building sustained severe smoke
damage and was flooded with
water.
"Cheeca's sprinkler system
did a good job putting the fires
out in some of the rooms, but
when the fire went into roof,
that's what we had a hard time
dealing with," Wagner said.
Access to water sometimes
a difficulty in fighting fires in the
Keys was not a problem,
Wagner said, and the main fire
was suppressed in about two
hours. Firefighters continued to
"chase" fires on the four-story
roof well into midday Thursday.
Firefighters on scene
described an intense and danger-
ous blaze, with flames crawling
up walls and on ceilings, while at
the same time water from the
sprinkler system traveled down
walls and shot out of electrical
sockets.
No other buildings, including
the resort's spa, were damaged.

This report was supplemented
with materialfrom Miami Herald
reporter Cammv Clark.

Publisher's note


Today's first edition of the Keynoter in 2009 displays the
three-sided symbol for recycle/reduce/reuse.
We are proud to have achieved the goal of using 100 percent
recycled newsprint in the printing process, thanks to landmark
efforts by our newspaper partner The Miami Herald Media Co.
The effort wasn't easy. Back in 2000, the American Forest
& Paper Association reported that only 71 percent of newspa-
pers were printing on recycled stock.
Last year, the Herald's press operations crew achieved 95
percent recycling and by mid-2008 hit the long-sought 100 per-
cent goal.
This helps conserve raw materials and energy that newsprint
manufacturers would otherwise use in producing virgin pulp
products.
And, equally important, recycling and reuse reduces the
amount of material going into landfills, as Earth Odyssey
notes, lessening pollution that may result from waste disposal.
You can help by contacting your city or county leaders and
insist they encourage waste contractors to collect newspapers
for recycling. And you can help by separating your already-
read papers for pickup where you live or work.
Here at the Keynoter, we're also recycling and reusing
office paper, which is part of our ongoing commitment to sup-
port recycle, reduce, reuse.

'A driving force'


ROTH / From I

extensive cement work Roth has
tackled over the years.
"Daytime TV is. a killer," he
joked.
Roth's peers say he's earned
the down time after 18 years at
the helm of the Sheriff's Office.
Peryam says he couldn't have
asked for a better mentor.
"This is a man that has dedicat-
ed his entire adult life to the serv-
ice of his country and his commu-
nity, and he's done it with integri-
ty. I think he's one of the best sher-
iffs the state has seen," he said.
Col. Rick Ramsay, the under-
sheriff, said the department oper-
ates according to Roth's motto of
"do the right thing." He cited
using $25 million in seized drug
money for department needs -
not burdening taxpayers with the
expense and setting aside a
large chunk to help fund county
nonprofit organizations each year.
"He's done a lot to make the
organization as great as it can
be," Ramsay said. "It's a difficult
job. No matter what you do,
you're getting criticism, but he's
been a driving force and he's
been great to work with."
Kathy Tuell is chief executive
officer of the Florida Keys
Children's Shelter, one of many
nonprofits Roth has loaned his
time to over the years. She said
his calm and consensus-building
character is valuable.
"He's very near and dear to my
heart and is as much a friend as he
was a board member," she said.
"I don't think he realizes how
many people love him," says
Jeanne Selander, who oversees
the Sheriff's Office Animal Farm
that Roth visits frequently.
She said Roth's support for
what started as a refuge for way-
ward ducks at the Monroe County
Detention Center on Stock Island
has been unwavering. The farm is
now home to more than 250 neg-
lected or abused animals from
across the country.
"I am sad to see him go; he's
one of'the nicest people I ever
met," Selander said.
Roth originally came to the
Keys in 1958, randomly assigned
to Naval Air Station Key West
after enlisting in the U.S. Navy.
He met Sandi at a dairy bar she
worked at in August that year and
the couple was married by March
1959. Their first daughter, Cathy,
was born at the Navy hospital in
1960. after which Roth was hon-


orably discharged and the family
moved back to Minneapolis.
Their second daughter,
Deanna, was born in August 1961.
In 1965, after being laid off
from a tractor factory, Roth came
back to the Keys and found work
in construction. His lifelong
dream of becoming a police offi-
cer was revived while talking to a
friend of Sandi's who worked for
the Sheriff's Office.
Roth moved back to
Minnesota once again but had
the one-page Sheriff's Office
application mailed to him. A
short time later, he received a call
saying the department was hiring
a dispatcher and the job was his if
he arrived in two weeks.
Sandi said Rick wondered
aloud on several occasions
whether the couple was "making
a big mistake," and an accident
that saw the contents of their
trailer scattered along the high-
way during the trip down did lit-
tle to dissuade him. Then there
was Hurricane Betsy.
The storm was bearing down
on the Keys and unaware of this,
the couple continued to drive
right toward it. They made it
through the weather unscathed,
though Rick was understandably
late for his interview.
He started in September 1965
and his ascent was rapid. By
1967 he was a road officer and by
1969 a detective. He then headed
up two substations before being
promoted to major in charge of
operations in Key West.
By 1989, Roth was heading
Internal Affairs when then-
Sheriff Allison DeFoor resigned
to run for lieutenant governor
alongside then-Gov. Bob
Martinez. Roth was appointed as
sheriff to fill DeFoor's term, and
he's remained ever since.
Roth said his proudest accom-
plishment is an increase in pro-
fessionalism in the department
and the reduction in the county's
crime rate over the years.
"It's been cut in half of what it
was in 1990. That's because of
aggressive law enforcement, so I
think that's a telltale figure," he
said.
But now it's time for Roth to
enjoy his family, including 11-
year-old granddaughter Rayna,
and his hobbies. Noted for being
down to earth, Roth will likely
wear the same jeans and casual
shirt he wore as sheriff in his new
woodshop.
"It's time to hang up the gun
and eniov his life." Ramsav savs.

Ward's making changes


County's new
top prosecutor
starts Tuesday
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

New staff and new priorities
will mark the beginning of
change at the Monroe County
State Attorney's Office, says
incoming prosecutor Dennis
Ward.
Ward, a Democrat elected in
November, starts his four-year
term Tuesday with a visit to the
State Attorney's Office in Key
West.
"I know what's going on in
the Middle and Upper Keys
offices but I need to start the
evaluation of the Key West
office," Ward said Friday. "I'll
meet with the people there and
talk to them about what needs to
be done."
One change will see new
people in the investigation staff.
Anthony Pizzo, a former
captain with the Miami Beach
Police Department, will be
named chief investigator, a
position held by Paul Meyers
under outgoing State Attorney
Mark Kohl.
Ward, a retired Miami Beach
police officer himself, said
Pizzo brings "extensive inves-
tigative experience and abili-
ties. He's worked in just about
every investigative department
in Miami Beach, including
Internal Affairs."
Eric Thomas, a detective
with the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, also will join
Ward's staff as an investigator.
Ward has named chief prose-
cutors for the Middle and Upper
Keys offices but has not decid-
ed on the position in Key West.
"I want to talk to people in
the court system, the Public
Defender's Office and criminal-
defense attorneys for their
input," said Ward, 56.
Patrick McCullah will
remain chief prosecutor for the
Middle Keys.
"I did my research and spoke
to a number of people," Ward
said. "They all have a great deal
of confidence in Patrick's abili-
ty to run the office. I agree with
them."
Colleen Dunne, a former
assistant state attorney in the


When they're sworn in


Monroe County's new
sheriff, state attorney and
judge officially take office at
midnight Tuesday but their
swearing-ins come a little
later.
Sheriff-elect Bob Peryam is
scheduled to be sworn in' 10
a.m. Tuesday at the Freeman
Justice Center off Whitehead
Street in Key West.
State Attorney-elect Dennis

Upper Keys,
will return to
run the
SPlantation
A O Key office.
Dunne has
worked as a
public
defender and
WARD private-prac-
tice defense
attorney since leaving the State
Attorney's Office in 2003.
Donald Barrett, an Upper
Keys lawyer in private practice,
will serve as Ward's chief assis-
tant state attorney.
"I've worked with Don in the
same office, and been able to
observe his work as both a pros-
ecutor and defense attorney,"
Ward said. "He's very knowl-
edgeable and has a great atti-
tude."
The shaky status of the
Florida state budget, which
largely funds the State
Attorney's Office, looms as
Ward's biggest concern.
"I think we're going to get
hit a bit," he said. "We're going
to see what happens when the
Florida Legislature begins this
spring."
The current budget of
approximately $4.5 million
funds a total office staff of 58.
"We can't start chopping
salaries or people and not have
an -impact on our caseload,"
Ward said. "I don't want to be
in the position where it's diffi-
cult for our people to process
these cases."

Ward is set to be sworn in at
4:30 p.m. Jan. 9, also at the
Freeman Justice Center.
And Circuit Court Judge-
elect Tegan Slaton's swearing-
in is scheduled for 3 p.m. Jan.
16, also at the Freeman Justice
Center. He takes the bench
even though a lawsuit chal-
lenging his election victory is
pending.


Ward said he plans to
increase the emphasis on gov-
ernment accountability laws,
such as the Sunshine Law.
"There were prior instances
of possible violations of the
Sunshine Law that people felt
did not get the attention they
deserved," Ward said.
And he plans to install a
whistleblower's line for report-
ing problems in government.
"We need to educate all govern-
ment employees about the
whistleblower statute."

Opinion


Buffett's success offers

a good guidepost

Tired of year-end recaps and boring business prognostica-
tions, today's editorial strikes out on a different slant entirely.
This is about Jimmy Buffett and the lessons we all can learn
from his life choices.
Most fans likely don't care that Buffett graduated from the
University of Southern Mississippi with a history degree. Or
that he worked as a correspondent for Billboard magazine.
Fans know he started out his musical career playing for tips
on the streets of New Orleans. Country music singer Jerry Jeff
Walker hooked up with the young Buffett there and took him
to Key West, where both street performers never knew where
their next meal would come from.
But Key West is also where Buffett was introduced to the Pier
House's Chart Room, returned to perform and later developed
his musical sound immortalized in the breakaway hit
"Margaritaville."
Fewer know that his top-selling work is not music but his
writing. Three of his books have made The New York Times'
bestseller list, including "A Pirate Looks at Fifty."
Buffett branched out from music and concert tours to open
his first Margaritaville Restaurant in Key West (1985). Later,
he co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise chain with the
parent of Outback Steakhouse, then his own beer brand. He
even signed a casino-resort deal with Harrah's Entertainment.
He founded the Save the Manatee Club with former Florida
Gov. Bob Graham.
An Associated Press article datelined Las Vegas notes
Buffett's sold-out MGM Grand concert this week proves the
staying power of the Buffett brand.
And what is that brand?
It's not just the music, really. Only one of his many record-
ings ever made it to the Billboard Top 10 ("Margaritaville"
back in 1977).
An editor at Rolling Stone says Buffett transcends music gen-
res, offering fans an "accessible fantasy" regardless of age.
What Buffett figured out is pretty simple: If at first you don't
succeed or even if you do try something else you like. He
also realized that once he latched on to what became known as
tropical rock, he kept at it through numerous recordings and
concert dates that still sell out venues 35 years after his first
album release (in 1970).
Figuring out how to stay fresh comes by continuously tap-
ping that "accessible fantasy" which brought many of us to
the Keys. Maybe this Buffett (not Warren) offers the healthiest
guideposts for living we all should follow in 2009 and beyond.

Support the sheriff-elect, and get involved


EDITOR:
I would like to thank everyone who took the
time to vote intelligently after getting to know the
candidates. I ran for sheriff for reform, trying to
shed light on previously undiscussed issues. I feel
I raised the bar of the sheriff-elect and forced
some things to be addressed that may not have
been without me being in the race.
I would like to say that I am proud of Sheriff-
elect Bob Peryam, that he has taken such an inter-
est in the jail situation. I complained about the jail
during the race, and am glad for the attention
Sheriff-elect Peryam is giving it. I believe he is
diligently trying to sort through problems and find
solutions, and I will give him all the support I can
in hopes that he will be our best sheriff ever.
With that in mind, let me say, incoming Sheriff
Peryam needs all the citizens' support as we move
forward in this time of turmoil in the world and in
the economy. It would do us all well to get behind
our leaders and show them we are willing to help
them.
I did not run to be a "spoiler," as the Keynoter
said in a Dec. 27 article. I was the first candidate
in the race for sheriff and my campaign was about


how the way things had been done for so long
needed to change. Alas, the citizens voted and
they chose the more familiar path, which I do not
slight them for.
I have no remorse that my votes might have
affected the outcome in the race, nor am I per-
suaded it threw the race to Sheriff-elect Peryam
instead of Ken Davis. I am convinced my voters
voted for me, and without me in the race, my
votes would probably have been split.
I strongly encourage all citizens to take inventory
of their skills and see if they could be put to use in
public office. In-the-know citizens should run for
office if only to bring up issues and challenge the
traditional way of thinking. It helps us all. We can all
be good sports, get behind the winner and show sup-
port after the race, and after the voters have decided.
I thank Monroe County for the open-minded-
ness they showed me in the sheriff race and hope
my run for sheriff will encourage more candidate
participants in the future elections. God bless our
county and happy new year to all who make the
Keys their home.

Process is serving the judicial election well


EDITOR:
As campaign manager for Tegan Slaton, I feel
I must respond to the extensive comments made
by the losing candidate (and her lawyer) in
regards to our not-so-recent judicial election.
Before I proceed to clarify some of the points of
the election challenge, however, I would like to
share some of my thoughts as to the beneficial
attributes of a good judge.
In my legal career, I have found that when it
comes to being an effective public servant,
demeanor and judicial temperament are as
important as legal acumen. Although a judge
must conduct his or her duties in a formal adver-
sarial setting, this does not require that the judge
appear to be arrogant, entitled or self-important.
Accordingly, it was not his long history of
public service or legal experience that led me to
support Tegan. Rather, it was his effective ami-
able way in which he dealt with people.
As to the election challenge, our election sys-
tem did what it was statutorily required to do.
The losing candidate (and her team) was present
during all of the post-election process and never
voiced any complaint as to legitimacy of the
process. In fact, her on-the-record comments
indicated a satisfaction with the process as well
as a desire to count all the votes.
Now that she has been determined to have
lost the election, the losing candidate indicates
that the process was chaotic and that the people
and entities that were involved performed their
duties in a deficient or incompetent manner.
It is probably worth mentioning that those
involved in the process are all well-respected
public servants in their own right (Supervisor of
Elections Office and Supervisor Harry Sawyer,
Tax Collector Danise Henriquez and judges
Ruth Becker and Wayne Miller). Since the los-
ing candidate used to work for (and apparently
wanted to work with) the judges, it seems espe-


cially curious that she would attack Judge
Becker and Judge Miller in this manner.
Despite the claimed legal expertise, the losing
candidate sued in the wrong place (and subse-
quently claimed that all the people she was suing
were "judge shopping") and did not pay the
proper filing fee. Also, despite the indication that
she wanted to resolve the election dispute as
quickly as possible, it took her the better part of
two weeks to serve the parties to the lawsuit. .
Your readers might also be interested to know
that since it was not a valid claim, half of her law-
suit was summarily thrown out. Finally, contrary to
the initial indication that she wanted all the votes to
count, the losing candidate now seeks to exclude
certain votes cast by those serving in our military.
I hope the above information will allow your
readers to form their own opinion as to whether
the best candidate was elected to serve them.

Housing Authority needs to be responsive


EDITOR:
I asked questions about a felon
working for the Monroe County
Housing Authority. Now 1 am the one
being discriminated against. The
Tropical Isle Apartments are not
properly run. So much goes on here,
and the complex staff never cares to
check it out.
At Tropical Isle, there is a sign
that says "Equal Housing
Opportunity." Yes, only .if you do not
question those in authority. You can
live at Tropical Isle and violate your
lease without getting evicted, but
question those in authority and they
tell you they cannot deal with you
and start fabricating things about you.
The Monroe County Housing
Authority thinks that just because
their budget is all right, that every-
thing is. The Housing Authority
needs to pay attention to the Tropical
Isle Apartments and consider listen-
ing to the tenants about their com-


plaints, comments and questions
without bias, because the ones run-
ning the complex are not.
I don't know the function of the
Monroe County Housing Authority
board, but going to them gets no
results. They just believe whatever
one side says.
I was told that one could not live
in housing and work for them. There
is a male who lives at the Eastwind
Apartments and works there and at
Tropical Isle. One cannot live in
housing if they have a felony charge,
but they let a felon access files.
I think a lot of us would like to
know why a felon is working for the
Monroe County Housing Authority.
Fair is fair; you cannot let one but
not the other. It is time to stop this
unfairness. The Monroe County
Housing Authority should be
ashamed.

Best Christmas present: Stolen engine found


EDITOR:
I would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank our Sheriff's Office
for doing an almost impossible
task. Thank you to Sheriff-Elect
Peryam for a fine group of detec-
tives and officers who dedicate
themselves to their jobs.
Somewhere around the first of
November, I noticed that my boat
engine had been removed from a
boat that I was restoring; a Yamaha
250 horse power outboard was
missing. I called the Sheriff's
Office and Deputy Ken Fricke
came out to where the boat was and
he took a report. Twenty minutes or
so later, Detective Bobby Burkett
came over, too, and the two officers
started the investigation.
SI gave a statement of when I last
saw the engine on the boat, and I
told them it was probably a week or
two before. They asked if I had a
serial number for the unit, which I
did not have, so they asked if I had
any other ways to identify the
engine. I gave them a vague recol-
lection of some things I could
remember, which was not much to
go on.
Well, they found some finger-
prints and a socket wrench that had
been left at the scene. That told me
getting the engine back was proba-
bly not going to happen but that
they would do their best.
About four weeks later, I get a
call that they thought they had
found the engine and asked if there
were any more ways to identify the
unit. Mechanic Billy Eckel, who
had worked on it, remembered


more about the engine and it was
enough to make an identification
stick.
So with the help of my boss,
Stephen Pearson, and Eric
Goodman and Billy Eckel, I got the
engine back in one piece. All the
time this was going on, I was in the
Veterans Administration hospital.
Thanks so much to Lisa, our
shop office manager, who set this
all up. Thanks so much to all who
helped make things a little better in
our town, and thanks to the deputy
who saw the engine on 15th Street
hanging in a tree.

Many helped

with Vietnam wall

EDITOR:
To the donors, providers of serv-
ices, volunteers and participants in
the ceremonies both at the banquet
for and dedication of the traveling
Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in
Key West:
Without all of those that donated
and helped out in any way to get the
traveling wall here to the Florida

Thank you to those family members

thank you to those who sacrificed

Secretary General Peter Anderson lays claim to part of the old Seven Mile Bridge in
January 2006 after 15 Cuban migrants landed there; the U.S. Coast Guard
repatriated them, saying the old bridge isn't land and therefore the wet-foot,
dry-foot policy didn't apply. So Anderson reasoned the old span was part of the
Conch Republic, not the U.S. Ultimately, a federal judge disagreed with the Coast
Guard and the migrants were allowed to return to.the U.S.

Anderson's made the Conch Republic what it is


EDITOR:
Our home is the Conch Republic.
Peter Anderson is our secretary general.
And as far as secretary generals go,
Peter is the best we have ever had.
Ironic? Not at all. I am one of those
believers who has traveled international-
ly using the Conch Republic passport.
The reason that passport exists and is as
credible as it is (which is to say not very
but just enough, yes?) is due to the dili-
gent and consistent Sir Peter Anderson.
Brand, schmand. The fact of the mat-
ter is a group of sly and skulking
wolves in the Upper Keys sweeping
themselves up to be businessmen are
attempting to use legal chicanery to
usurp the work of the secretary general,
as well as the good name of our Conch
Republic.
In my eyes, they, too, are Conch
Republicans. But in order to have their
cake, they have to play ball or get out of
the kitchen. Meaning, there are respon-
sibilities to being a Conch Republican. I
believe the foremost of which is be
funny. Personally, I interpret this as
Thou Shalt Not Be Unfunny. And at
present time, those guys rank an epic
fail on the funnyometer.
Co-opting the Conch Republic name
and tradition without buying into the
charade is cultural theft. It stinks of the
behavior that originally led to our for-
mal disorganizing into the Conch
Republic in the first place.
Can you imagine a Conch Republic


celebration without the secretary gener-
al? Why call it a Conch Republic sepa-
ration then? Why not try calling it
something like McDonald's Hamburger
Festival without licensing for the golden
arches or red-wigged clown, and see
how long that lipstickless lead pig zep-
pelin flies.
The Conch Republic is fake? Pshaw.
The Conch Republic is certainly a joke,
but it is no less real than Santa, God or
the tooth fairy.
And now they insult us all by saying
that they would never have our secretary
general at their event? You mean the
secretary general who single-handedly
has rallied us all around our beloved
blue-and-conch-emblazoned flag for the
past 25 years? The one who speaks
before assemblies and ambassadors with
self-effacing style, grace and character-
istic charm? The guy who blew the
conch at both Captain Outrageous and
Captain Tony's funeral processions? Or,
in the spot-on perfect sentiment of one
Tony Soprano, "Are you friggin' kid-
ding me?!"
If there was a Conch Republic Days
event in the Northernmost Territories,
and Sir Peter Anderson and the rest of
the usual suspects were invited to be
given the royal treatment, I'd be the
first to attend. In fact, if the Upper Keys
Business Group falls through, we can
hold it anyways on Stock Island.

Mixed signs for the season


Key West busy
but down from
previous year
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Christmas holiday corre-
sponds with the beginning of the
Key West's tourist season, and
although local businesses felt the
effects of the tourist injection,
.what will happen the rest of the
season remains unknown.
"People are booking [rooms]
later than usual, so there's a little
uncertainty over the final lodg-
ing numbers," says Ian Whitney,
president of the Key West
Innkeepers Association. Still,
"New Year's Eve was packed. I
don't think there was a bed left
on the island."
Despite the injection over the
holidays, Whitney said the
tourist industry is preparing for
the national economic downturn
to hurt their bottom lines this
season: "I think everyone thinks
it's going to be slower than
expected."
In a weekly occupancy report
prepared by Smith Travel
Research for the Monroe County
Tourist Development Council,
numbers for the week of Dec.
21-27 are down compared to last
year, while Christmas Day book-
ings were up.
This year, the occupancy rate
for the more than 5,000 Key
West hotel, motel, guesthouse


and inn rooms from Dec. 21-27
was 72.8 percent. Last year, it
was 87 percent.
However, on Christmas Day'
itself, occupancy was at 91 per-
cent as compared to last year's
79.8 percent, a 14 percent
increase.
"It looks like people are
spending money while they're
here. Starting next week, it'll
probably drop off some," says
Harold Wheeler, director of the
TDC.
He expects it to pick back up
at the end of January and begin-
ning of February.
"It's really hard at this point
in time to monitor the situation
because people are making last-
minute bookings. It's very tough
to forecast but the early signs
that we're seeing are very good.
And hopefully that will stimu-
late the consumer's confidence,"
he said.
Nate Boucree, who works at
the Key West seaport as a para-
sail boat captain for Sunset
Watersports, said he was busy
over the holidays but the tourist
influx dried up sooner than
expected.
"As busy as we were, we
were not as busy as we have
been in the past. As of today
[Friday], people are gone. We
were expecting certain numbers
[Friday] and our projected num-
bers were going to be huge. But
instead it was a fizzle."
Boucree planned to take


between 50 and 60 tourists para-
sailing on Friday, but instead
booked only 12 people. "That's
just the way the economy is," he
said.
Bob Waulters, a marketing
representative at a Duval Street
Hyatt Vacation Club kiosk,
noticed that tourists seem to be
packing as much as possible into
shorter trips.
"I think the time period is
limited," Waultes said. "I
noticed everybody seemed in a
hurry. Time is squeezed. They're
in a hurry to get as much out of
their time as possible. And
they're stressed."
Waulters' job is get tourists,
excluding cruise ship passen-
gers, to go on a tour of the
Hyatt's time-share properties on
South Roosevelt Boulevard.
"You don't see many smiles
going by. Their disposition isn't
good. I hope it improves."
A holiday tourist boon does
come from heightened numbers
of cruise ship passengers and"
port calls. Between Dec. 21 and
Dec. 30, the three cruise ship
berths, Mallory Square, Pier B
and the Outer Mole, hosted 20
cruise ships and more than
42,000 passengers.
The city charges cruise lines
disembarkation fees to offset
increased security and utility use
stemming from the ships; before
expenses, city coffers received
$265,747 thanks to cruise pas-
sengers between Dec. 21-30,
according to the Port Operations
Department.

City to bank on mandatory recycling


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission is scheduled to vote
Tuesday on the first reading of an
ordinance that would create a
mandatory residential recycling
program.
It would include a 12-month
community education effort and
then enforcement from the city's
Code Compliance Department -
including a fine and an order to
Waste Management Inc. not to
pick up your trash if you aren't
recycling.
Commissioner Teri Johnston,
who is sponsoring the ordinance,
said, "We'd like to gain compli-
ance through education. At the
end of the 12-month time, we'll
put some teeth behind it."
Johnston said that in addition.
to being the right thing to do, a
mandatory recycling program
would save the city much-needed
money in a tight budget year.
City residents recycle around
6 percent of what they can per
year, officials say. Last year, that
was 3,012 tons worth of recy-
clables.
The goal is to get to 30 per-
cent, or 14,400 tons.
The city has budgeted to pay


Waste Management Inc. $66.66
per ton to haul out 48,000 tons of
trash this year. It doesn't pay to
have recyclables hauled out.
If the city meets its 30 percent
goal, it would save $759,124 by
not paying Waste Management to
haul out more than 11,000 tons of
previously un-recycled waste.
Annalise Mannix, the city's
Engineering Services manager,
has acted as the city's go-to per-
son on the proposed ordinance.
She stressed the economic boon
of recycling.
"The most important thing is
people have been paying for it
and not using it. For every ton we
don't recycle, we pay extra. It's
an important year to save money
in any way, shape or form."
Mannix has been meeting with
community and school groups as
well as transient rental and condo
managers in an effort to vet the
proposed law.
Face-to-face education will
come from volunteers, largely
drawn from the city's
Ambassador program, and from
code officers. The city also has a
$20,000 promotional budget for
flyers, inserts into utility bills,
door hangers, and print and radio


advertisements.
When the February 2010
enforcement date arrives, house-
holds not recycling will be fined
$50. Then, according to a memo
from Mannix to city manage-
ment, "If staff does not see com-
pliance (a recycle bin out) after
significant educational opportu-
nities were provided, the code
officer will examine the trash and
if there is recyclables, the officer
will tape the trash pail closed and


WM [Waste Management] will
not pick up the trash."
"We are destroying ourselves
and we don't care," Mannix said.
"The commission's job is to do
what's right for the people even if
the people don't think it's .right.
It's going to fly."
Other scheduled commission
business includes a resolution
that will allow Mayor Morgan
McPherson and the six commis-
sioners to each appoint someone


to the new Bahama Village
Redevelopment Advisory Com-
mittee. The committee will rec-
ommend to the commission how
to spend tax incremental funding
in the District VI neighborhood.
The panel replaces the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust as
the city's advisory agent in allo-
cating the special tax funds.
The City Commission meets
Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Old City
Hall on Greene Street.

fatally wrong on New Year's Eve.
Amelio Fernandez, 48, of
Hialeah died after falling from a
canoe around 12:30 a.m., accord-
ing to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Jose Blanco, 35, also was
thrown into the water when the
16-foot motorized canoe capsized,
says FWC Officer Bobby Dube.
Fernandez struggled in the
water before sinking. Blanco was
able pull Fernandez to the surface
but the victim had fallen uncon-
scious.
Unable to climb back into the
capsized canoe, Blanco clung to
Fernandez for several hours
through the night, near Rodriguez


Key more than a mile offshore.
"It can be very difficult to
right a canoe in that kind of situ-
ation," Dube said. "Neither man
was wearing a life jacket, which
very likely could have prevented
this death. It's a bad way to end
the old year."
Cause of death was not deter-
mined, pending autopsy and tox-
icology results.
After clutching the overturned
canoe and body for approximately
four to five hours, Blanco floated
close enough to an anchored sail-
boat to awaken the boaters aboard.
U.S. Coast Guard and FWC boats
responded to the scene.
Falling overboard without a
life jacket is the most common
cause of boating deaths in Florida,
according to FWC statistics.
A Key Largo liveaboard resi-
dent died in November after
falling from a dinghy.

This is how the Luhrs ended up or down, depending on your
perspective when it sunk at the site of the 'Eagle.'


Three women and two dogs were
on the boat when it went down.
All were rescued by nearby
boaters.
The sportfishing boat,
described as a Luhrs about 32
feet long, landed directly atop the
Eagle, a steel freighter-scuttled in
1985.
"My divers told me it looked
like it was docked right on top of
the Eagle," said Clint Henry, a
captain from Conch Republic
Divers in Tavernier. "Just sitting
there on the Eagle's bow."
The boat was still on the bot-
tom Wednesday, although recov-
ery efforts led by Sea Tow of
Islamorada were underway by the
afternoon.
"We saw the boat listing, then
it went down very quickly," said
Wayne Savier of Cape Cod,
Mass., aboard a boat that was
waiting for a mooring ball at the
Eagle site.
Savier and companions Jason
Stone and Allan Morris, all of
Cape Cod, pulled the women and
two dogs one a lap dog, the
other "a blind chocolate Lab" -
aboard their 18-foot open fisher-
man boat.
"We were in the right place at
the right time," he said. "It was
lucky we happened to be there."
Three men who were diving off
the Luhrs were underwater on the
wreck during the sinking. They
surfaced to find the boat gone.
"My son said he thought he


heard one of the girls [on the
Luhrs] say, 'I think we. are sink-
ing.' Within a few minutes, only
the bow was out of the water," said
witness Don Ware. "The back of
the [Luhrs] boat just went down."
The U.S. Coast Guard had no
information on the identity or
hometowns of the group on the
Luhrs. One witness said he was
told the boat was from the
Jacksonville area.
Savier said the women were
unsettled but physically unhurt.
A boat from the Islamorada
Coast Guard station responded to
the scene, near the reef about six
miles off Islamorada. Accident
information from the agency was
not available.
Observers speculated that a.
broken pump connection may
have caused the boat to flood.
Weather conditions at midday
were "absolutely beautiful,"
Henry said. "It was dead-flat
calm and sunny with no current."
Savier said his group made
repeated dives to help recover
lost gear from the boat, including
expensive fishing rods. "We
probably brought up $4,000 in
gear," he said.
The Eagle is a 268-foot
freighter that was scuttled as the
Keys' first major shipwreck reef.
It landed on its starboard side in
about 110 feet of water, and was
torn in two by a passing hurricane
a decade ago.

Height appealed


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com


Marathon Planning Com-
missioner Larry Shaffer has for-
mally appealed a ruling made by
his own board Dec. 15 granting a
9-foot height limit variance to
city Finance Director Peter
Rosasco for a proposed hotel.
But he's not prepared to fork
over the $2,100 deposit required
by the city to handle the appeal.
He's asked it to be waived "for
the common good of the city of
Marathon."
"This height variance affects
everyone. I believe the fee would
be waived easily by the [City]
Council, but I don't know that for
a fact," Shaffer said.
He said the deposit require-
ment is keeping many from filing
an appeal.
Shaffer was the lone dissent-
ing vote on the variance.
"If a de facto precedent is set,
it should be the political arm in
the process, which is the


Marathon City Council," Shaffer
wrote. The Planning Commission
has final say over height vari-
ances unless an appeal is .nade to
the City Council.
Rosasco's development team
requested nine variances to the
city's 37-foot height limit on new
buildings including a lobby to
be built more than 57 feet tall and
a retail tower that would stand
nearly 59 feet tall. A compromise
granted Rosasco across-the-
board variances equal to the 25
percent variance Garrett is able to
grant on his own, without
Planning Commission approval.
Rosasco plans to build an 80-
room Hampton Inn on his 4.81-
acre lot near mile marker 48 in
Old Town Marathon.
"Rosasco's project is really
good and something we need,"
Shaffer said. "He's a local devel-
oper who knows the right things
to do, except for this height vari-
ance."


Rate hike goes to PSC


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A long-delayed hearing on
whether to raise sewer rates as
much as 57 percent on Stock
Island is finally scheduled to go
before the Florida Public Service
Commission Tuesday.
KW Resort Utilities, a private
sewer provider serving some
1,500 homes on Stock Island, has
been granted two extensions by
the commission since January -
each related to a possible sale of
its Lower Keys sewer plant.
The first was because of nego-
tiations with the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority, which is
designing and installing sewer
systems in unincorporated
Monroe County. KW Resort and
the Aqueduct Authority have a
long history of disagreement over
who can best provide service to
Big Coppitt, Rockland and
Geiger keys.
KW Resort has said it can
save taxpayers more than $5 mil-
lion using its existing plant, while
the Aqueduct Authority has said
the utility left $8.7 million worth
of transmission lines out of its
original estimate.
The second extension was
granted in March while KW


Resort was in talks with New
Stock Island Properties Inc., a
group of developers looking to
redevelop Safe Harbour on Stock
Island.
In September 2007, the PSC
approved a temporary rate
increase of 19.93 percent until
the full requested amount could
be investigated. The utility says it
needs the increase so its plant
could be brought up to state-man-
dated advanced wastewater treat-
ment standards.
That update was completed
late in November 2007 but not
before the state Office of Public
Counsel released a damning audit
of the utility earlier that month.
It noted numerous question-
able expenditures in the utility's
bottom line, including $13,000
for owner Bill Smith's plane fuel
and rental cars, another $6,000
for his lodging, $7,500 in tele-
phone charges and a $1,000 dona-
tion to then-gubernatorial candi-
date Charlie Crist's campaign.
The PSC meets at 11 a.m.
Tuesday in Tallahassee. The
Stock Island rate increase is the
sixth agenda item. To listen to the
meeting live on the Web, go to

Barauck's


death a 'blow' to the community


Le Te Da owner
was known as.
philanthropist
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Funeral arrangements are
pending for Mark Barauck, the
51-year-old owner of La Te Da
in Key West who died suddenly
early Wednesday in Miami from
complications of a stomach
ulcer.
"He was one of the most giv-
ing and loving individuals a per-
son could hope for," says Alan


Eckstein, Barauck's attorney and
longtime friend.
Barauck moved to Key West
from San Francisco in 1994 and
became the sole owner of La Te
Da, a bar and hotel on upper
Duval Street, in 2003. It's world-
famous for featuring female
impersonators in its state-of-the-
art Crystal Room Cabaret.
"He was a great steward of a
wonderful historic building,"
Eckstein said, referring to La Te
Da's history as a home of Cuban
revolutionary Jose Marti. "He
really developed that property
into something special over the

years."
In addition to owning and
operating La Te Da, Barauck
was involved with a number of
Keys charities including AIDS
Help, the Cancer Foundation of
the Florida Keys and Hospice of
the Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse
Association.
"He was always there,"
Eckstein said. "That's just the
kind of person he was."
Robert Walker, executive
director of AIDS Help, remem-


bers Barauck as a consummate
philanthropist.
"It's just an unbelievable loss
to this community," Walker said.
La Te Da hosted the Fantasy
Fest coronation ball, a major
AIDS Help fundraiser, for the
past three years. "He was so sup-
portive of charitable organiza-
tions," Walker said.
"Mark was a unique individ-
ual in that he didn't wait for you
to ask for help and support," he
said.


In 2005, following the flood-
ing spawned by Hurricane
Wilma, AIDS Help had to
scramble to find a place to host
the Fantasy Fest coronation. It
was originally scheduled to be
held at the Casa Marina Resort
but that was flooded out.
Barauck stepped in and offered
his business and support.
"He was just a very generous,
giving person, a terrific zeal for
life," Walker said. "This is a
blow to the total community."

Beware 0% transfers


They can do
more damage
than you think
By ALICIA BETANCOURT
Keynoter Contributor

Remember a couple of years
ago, when credit card offers
filled your mailbox, begging
you to transfer your high-inter-
est credit card balances onto a
new card, at 0 percent interest
for 18 months, with no transfer
fees?
Well, within the past year,
consumers nationwide have
noticed declines in such offers
because they're not biting due
to the economy. And now, most
of these transfers come with a
hefty price tag an average 3
percent transfer fee.
The price of transferring a
balance of $10,000 to a new 0
percent interest card often
for just a three- to six-month
period can get you slapped
with a $300 fee. The better deal
is to find a 2 percent to 5 per-
cent interest rate until you pay it
off. It is always better to pay
your debt completely but if you
have lingering balances, it may


benefit you to look at those
offers.
The real trick is to do your
homework and read the terms
and conditions the legalese
- of a credit card offer. It's a
vital step that many people skip.
Fixed-balance transfer credit
card offers look great, especial-
ly to those who owe a lot of
money. It is possible to save
thousands by lowering your
interest rates and transferring
your debt from high-interest
cards to low-interest ones.
By doing this, you keep pay-
ing more on your principle
instead of paying on interest.
Doing this takes some savvy,
though, as well as excellent
credit, a history of on-time pay-
ments, an ability to make large
payments toward your princi-
pal, and a decision to get out of
debt and not accumulate new
debt in other areas or on other
cards.
And remember that credit
card introductory offers, includ-
ing those for 0 percent balance
transfers, require card holders
to adhere strictly to the terms
and conditions or lose all
introductory rates and perks.


Balance transfers done correct-
ly can save on interest charges.
Done wrong, they can cost you
lots of money.
If your monthly payment is
posted one day late, or if you
exceed your credit limit by just
a few dollars, that great APR
can transform into an APR of 30
percent or higher and you will
pay the price, quite literally, for
years to come.
Here are five balance trans-
fer trip-ups from www.Bank
Rate.com:
Check the time limit care-
fully.
Know what zero interest
covers.
+ Beware of hefty fees.
Watch out for bait-and-
switch.
Always pay on time.

If it's Florida, it's strange


Like every year
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press


The past year in Florida
saw deputies Taser an emu.
iguanas fall from trees in
the Keys and a Christmas
tree used as a weapon.
What else would you
expect in a state where a
longtime congresswoman -
the Keys' congress-
,woman hung
up on President- /
elect Barack "
Obama not once,
but twice?
In a year full of
weird events, Republican
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehnnen
thought she was being punked
when Obama called her a fe~\
weeks after the election. She told
him he was a better Obamn
impersonator than the gu. on
"Saturday Night Live" and hung
up. Obama called back, and ,he
hung up again. She finally look
the call after a House colleague
called and convinced her it \\as
the real Obama.
Plenty of people went to
extremes to avoid arrest last year,
including a man who stole a
hearse parked outside a Broward
County church during a funeral.
A police chase ensued and offi-
cers shot the man in the leg
before he eventually returned the
hearse to the church.
Three teenagers tried break-
ing into a car in Tampa, apparent-
ly not realizing it was an under-
.cover police car. Oh, and that an
officer was inside.
Hillsborough County
deputies say two men pulled a
knife and gun on a Plant City man
and stole his eggbeater.
In a low-speed getaway, a
man in a motorized wheelchair
robbed a Merritt Island bank.
Deputies caught up with him about
500 feet away, finding the money
hidden in his prosthetic leg.
An Ocala man who's appar-
ently a strong advocate of safe
sex repeatedly rammed his SUV
into a closed convenience store
before jumping out, grabbing two
packs of condoms and fleeing.
A Tampa mail carrier was
bitten by a rattlesnake but kept
delivering mail for 30 minutes
before seeking heln-


does, 2008 brought out the odd


Reporter photo by DAVID GOODHUE
This iguana couldn't take the cold snap early in the year and dropped out of a tree behind The
Reporter's office at mile marker 91.6. When it gets cold enough, iguanas basically just lock up
dnd go into states of suspended animation.


Iguanas began falling from
South Florida trees during a cold
snap early in the year. When the
temperature reaches the 40s,
iguanas basically shut off their
bodies and lose their grip.
If Plop Plop the emu could
talk, it probably would have
shouted, "Don't Tase me, bro!"
That's exactly what Bay County
deputies did to trap the large,
escaped bird. And a Hemando
County deputy used a Taser on a
450-pound wild boar that was
rooting up shrubbery.
In a case of self-defense, a
pizza .delivery man in Broward
County escaped a robbery
attempt by throwing the pie at the
gunman.
In what was apparently a
bad case of the munchies, a cus-
tomer at a Vero Beach
McDonald's offered to pay for his
meal with marijuana. The
employee called police, who
arrested the man.
A St. Augustine red-light
runner had a case of beer secured
with a seat belt in the front seat


- and her 16-month-old daugh-
ter unrestrained in the back.
A St. Lucie County para-
medic stole a severed foot from
an accident scene and stored it in
her home freezer, hoping to use it
train a dog to follow the scent of
-decomposing flesh. She resigned.
A 92-vear-old legally blind

A diaper-clad monkey sit-
ting on top of a wall near an

Russian



pianist to




play Keys


Cuts force a
simpler program,
smaller orchestra
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
The Key West Symphony
Orchestra begins the 2009
season on Jan. 9 and 10
with the first of three master
concerts.
The Key West Symphony
Orchestra, L'Attitudes should
remind readers, is unlike any
other orchestra in the country in
that it draws musicians away
from their regular posts, mostly
with professional orchestras, to
come to Key West to rehearse
for one week before putting on
back-to-back performances.
Because the island offers a
warm respite for musicians
when the weather is unpleasant
up north, residents of the Keys
are treated to a level of talent
that would not show up in most
cities the size of Key West.
No one with a passing inter-
est in classical music should
miss seeing the first master con-
cert, where one of the top piano
players in the world, Alexander
Ghindin,,will perform
Shostakovich's "Piano Concerto
No. I" and Beethoven's
"Symphony No. 7."
Ghindin is the Russian who
at the age 17took first place at
the International Tchaikovsky
Competition, and in 2007, at the


age of 30, took first place at the
Cleveland International Piano
Competition.
He is touring the world as a
result of that triumph, perform-
ing concerts in Monte Carlo,
Prague, Moscow and Berlin. He
comes to Key West next week
at the tail end of that tour.
It was originally planned that
Ghindin would play Prokofiev,
but the program for all three
sets of 2009 orchestra concerts
was changed because of a lcss
of grant money, says Sebrina
Alfonso, who founded the Key
West Symphony in 1998 and is
leading it into its llth season.
"Everything is affected,"
Alfonso says of the loss of
funds.
Instead of about 70 musi-
cians, they'll have 50 this year.
There will be one harp, instead
of two or three, and a smaller
string section. To better fit a
smaller orchestra, different
pieces have been chosen. So,
Shostakovich instead of
Prokofiev, as had been planned;
and the young, female Korean
composer who was going to
play her "Monk Dance" on
Korean drums cannot now
come. The money just isn't
there.
The symphony lost about
$200,000 in pledged donations,
says Alfonso some from
grants, and some from.individu-

are from the Monroe County

"It's funny, because we're in
a new decade and it's almost
like we're starting from the
beginning," Alfonso told
L'Attitudes this week.
But the supporters of the
orchestra have not faltered, as
season ticket holders have
renewed subscriptions for 2009.

The Anne McKee Artists
Fund has given this year's Jack
Baron Award to artist Carrie
Disrud, the founder of Key
West's Kalypso Gallery. The
late Key West artist Jack Baron
is remembered as one of
Florida's finest and most prolif-
ic folk artists. In his memory,
each year the Anne McKee
Artists Fund recognizes one
local visual arts grant recipient
with a special, additional award
in his name.
Like Baron, Disrud is self-
taught and recognized interna-
tionally as an outsider artist or
nontraditional folk artist.
Disrud's paintings, sculptures,
and painted furniture have been
represented in galleries in
Chicago, Saugatuck, Mich.,
Indiana, and Key West.


On Sunday, Jan. 11,
Parmer's Resort on Little
Torch Key (mile marker 28.5)
will be hosting an all-day
music festival called "Boogie
on the Bay," featuring four
out-of-town bands playing
jazz, blues, oldies and funk,
plus local favorite Howard
Livingston's Mile Marker 24
Band playing tropical rock.
The festival starts at noon
and goes to 8 p.m. Bring lawn
chairs and blankets to watch
the bands over the gulf as a
full moon rises in the evening
sky. Great food and drinks
will be available and the resort
is offering discounted rates on
rooms. Lineup of bands
includes Audioform, an eight-
piece jazz band from
Charlotte, N.C.; Karma, a
band from Tampa playing
classic covers and old school
rock; DOGFISH, a Blues band
from Pine Island, Fla.; and
Deb & the Dynamics, the
headliner, playing high-energy
rhythm & blues, jazz and
funk.
No coolers or pets allowed,
and no food and drinks
brought in.
Tickets are $30 in advance

Authors come in from the cold


Big names in
Key West for
Literary Seminar
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


You only have to call out a
few names of authors whose
books get good reviews in The
New York Times, and chances are
some will be on the roster of
those heading to Key West next
week for the 27th annual Key
West Literary Seminar.
The seminar opens on Jan. 8
with several biographers and
well-known writers of historical
fiction gathering at the (Cuban-
government-owned) San Carlos
Institute at 616 Duval St. to lead
writing workshops and give
readings.
The theme of this year's semi-
nar is "Historical Fiction and the
Search for Truth" which feels
more than fitting as a strange
new year begins in which a
search for truth seems more
pressing, and in which history
seems to press heavily upon us.
Australian author Geraldine
Brooks is giving the keynote
speech at the opening of the
seminar on Jan. 8, and will
return on Sunday afternoon, Jan.
11, during the portion of the
seminar open to the public, to
read from her 2007 historical
novel "People of the Book."
"People of the Book" the
film rights of which have just
been acquired by actress
Catherine Zeta Jones traces
the journey of a rare Hebrew
manuscript back through the
ages, starting in Sarajevo in
1996 when a young woman, a
manuscript conservator, is called


elite, will surely enjoy reminisc-
ing about a time when he really
was at the forefront of the coun-
terculture, dragging homosexual-
ity out into the bright light and
rabidly defending the radicals
who clashed with police outside
the Democratic National
Convention in Chicago in 1968.
His 40-year feud with William F.


Geraldine
Brooks, the
Australian-born
author of
'March' and
'People of the
Book' will give
the keynote
speech at the
opening of the
Key West
Literary Seminar
at the San
Carlos Institute
on Jan. 8 and
will follow with a
public reading
at the San
Carlos Institute
on Sunday, Jan.


11, at 3 p.m. M
in to examine the artifact before
its exhibition.
Brooks will be joined at the
Sunday afternoon public session
by author Allan Gurganus ("The
Oldest Living Confederate
Widow Tells All"), who will par-
ticipate in a panel discussion
from 2:15-3 p.m. along with
authors Ursula Hegi ("Stones
from the River"), John Wray,
Sena Jeter Naslund, and Patricia
O'Toole, biographer of Teddy
Roosevelt.
Brooks reads at 3 p.m., and is
followed by author Barry
Unsworth reading from his


"Land of Marbles" from 3:30 to
4 p.m.
For those who've registered
for the seminar (most coming
from points north) the highlight
of the seminar may be the
appearance here of Gore Vidal,
who will speak on Saturday
night, Jan. 10.
"We're going to give him a
whole evening to himself," says
Arlo Haskell, media director of
the Key West Literary Seminar.
The title of Vidal's talk is:
"Writer Against the Grain." And
Vidal, 83, now the darling of
New York's left-wing cultural

convention, ended only with

after which Vidal wrote in an

Four other
wrestling teams
also in tourney
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @ keynoter.com

For their first home tourna-
ment of the season, Coral Shores'
wrestlers invited some of the
state's best.
The six-team event, the inau-
gural Upper Keys Rotary
Wrestling Invitational, runs from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today at Key
Largo School.
"We're a much-improved
team this year but we've got
some really impressive teams
coming in," said Hurricane head
coach Mark Terrill. "We've prob-
ably got a shot a third place, neck
and neck with Key West High


School."
The tournament actually will
be staged as a series of dual
meets against each of the other
teams, with tournament results
totaled at the end.
Lakeland High School and
Flagler Palm Beach, each consid-
ered powers in state Class 3A
wrestling (the sport's division for
the largest schools), will be in
Key Largo for the tournament.
"It's exciting to bring in this
kind of competition from upstate
for our first- tournament in a
while. It's a change of pace for
them," Terrill said. "Next year,
we hope to bring in some out-of-
state teams."
Cape Coral, a 2A squad, also
will compete. Bay Point, Key
West and Coral Shores all are sin-

Basketball,
soccer teams
ready to go
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School's win-
ter sports teams resume play this
week after a two-week break for
the holidays.
The girls soccer team will
look to rebound from a mid-sea-
son slump that saw the Dolphins
lose four straight games before a
tie against Keys rival Island
Christian School heading into the
break. The team sits at 8-4-1 after


opening the season with eight
straight victories.
Coach Lynn Landry said the
team's main focus over the break
was to heal up from what's
seemed more like a battle of attri-
tion than soccer season thus far.
Several key players have
missed time due to injury, includ-
ing Jasmine DeLaCruz, Katie
Landry, Marina Kay Wiatt,
Kelley Struyf and goalkeeper
Julietta Pezzella.
The girls are scheduled to host
perennial district power Palmer

Swim classic is today


Ritz rises up


Some of the nation's finest
collegiate swimmers are slated to
vie for honors at an Orange Bowl
Festival event in Key Largo.
The fifth annual Orange Bowl
Swimming Classic is set for 10
a.m. today at the Jacobs Aquatic
Center, mile marker 99.6 ocean-
side in Key Largo.
The classic is the culmination
of a monthlong Orange Bowl
training session for collegiate
swimmers in the Keys. The
sprint-style meet is expected to


feature 24 fast-paced swimming
events.
Eleven college teams
renowned for their athletic
prowess are scheduled to train in
Key Largo, including George
Mason University from Fairfax,
Va.; University of Michigan from
Ann Arbor, Mich., and Duke
University from Durham, N.C.
"This year's event is bigger
and more competitive than ever,


and it gives the Upper Keys a
huge opportunity to be a part of
the festivities," said Jim Boilini,
event chairman, who also serves
on the board of directors of
Upper Keys Community Pool
Inc., also known as Jacobs
Aquatic Center.
"These teams return year after
year because they feel welcome
here," said Boilini.
Admission is free to watch the
competition.


Soccer, basketball return


WRESTLING / From 24

gle A programs.
"We've done pretty well in a
couple tournaments so far,"
Terrill said. "This will be anoth-
er chance get our guys some
attention while we rebuild the
program."
Joshua Ritz, a transfer stu-
dent wrestling at 140 pounds,
has already emerged as a con-
tender for postseason honors,
Terrill said. Luke Terrill, at 145,
has compiled a solid 13-2
record.
"Guys like Daniel Doyle at
125 and T.J. Sabalka at 152 also


are doing very well," said the
coach.
"Greg Angel at 171 has been
the biggest surprise among our
heavier weight classes," Terrill
said. "Greg's a first-year
wrestler but he's such a natural
athlete that he's been able to
wrestle about .500, which is
impressive." -
The Hurricanes travel to Key
West on Thursday for a 2:30
p.m. dual meet. The meet origi-
nally was scheduled Jan. 15 but
has been advanced.
Coral Shores also takes part
in the Barron Collier
Tournament next Saturday.


MARATHON / From 24

Marathon Community Park at 5
p.m. Marathon lost to Palmer, 4-
1, on Dec. 9.
The boys soccer team looks to
reach the .500 mark when it
resumes play Thursday with a
scheduled visit to Westminster
Christian School. A win over Bay
Point School Dec. 20 sent the
boys into the holiday break with a
5-6 record.
But it won't be an easy game,
since the Warriors handled the
Dolphins in Marathon on Dec. 5,
5-1.


Canes

travel

UPPER KEYS / From 24

losers play for third place at 3
p.m. Sunday, with the champi-
onship at 5 p.m.
Coral Shores' girls soccer
team resumes action with three
road games this week. The Lady
Canes are at Archbishop Carroll
on Tuesday; at Palmer Trinity on
Thursday; and at Ransom
Everglades on Friday. The Canes
are home for a 1 p.m. Jan. 10
match against Boca Raton.
Coral Shores' boys soccer
team also visits Carroll on
Tuesday and Ransom on
Thursday.
The Hurricane boys basket-
ball team plays a 7 p.m.
Wednesday home game against
Archbishop Carroll, then visits
Key West at 7 p.m. Friday. Coral
Shores' girls are home for a 4 p.m.
Thursday game against Carroll.


Anticipating a potent offen-
sive attack, coach Jim Murphy
implemented a defense-first
game plan aimed at giving the
Dolphins a chance late. The
Dolphins trailed just 1-0 at the
half, but struggled to stop the
Warriors in the second half.
The boys basketball team also
headed into the break with a
much-needed victory over Bay
Point Dec. 20. The team had lost
five straight up to that point and
returns to play with a scheduled
Tuesday visit to Ronald Reagan
High School.
The win over Bay Point came
after an up-and-down 67-60 loss
to Key West High School the
night before. The Conchs built as
much as a 17-point lead with 4:00
remaining in the fourth quarter,


but Marathon stormed back to
within three in the final minute.
The Dolphins were forced to foul
late and Key West sunk crucial
free throws to keep the lead intact.
Marathon junior center Travis
Leachman put up huge numbers
against the Conchs, dominating
the paint in scoring 26 points and
hauling in 23 rebounds.
The girls basketball team
returns to play Jan. 10 with a
game scheduled for noon at
Marathon High School. The
Dolphins host Westwood
Christian School, a district oppo-
nent the team defeated 34-25 in
its last game before the break
Dec. 15.
The girls hold a 24 record so
far this season, including district
wins over the Warriors and Palmer.
