Lionfish found in Keys


Venomous beauty

and few friends
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A small fish with the spines
of a porcupine sent a tremor
through the Florida Keys marine


community this week.
A lionfish, a highly ven-
omous fish native to the Pacific
Ocean, was spotted Tuesday and
captured Wednesday at a deep
ledge on the ocean side of the
Benwood wreck, off Key Largo.
It was the first sighting of a
lionfish in local waters, but it
almost certainly will not be the
last, experts say.


"We didn't know when it
would show up," said John
Halas, Upper Keys regional
manager for the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary. "It
was more of a surprise that we
had not seen them before now."
With its maroon and white
stripes and an array of feathered
spines and fins, the lionfish is
one of the most visually dazzling

Peryam names commanders


Chad Scibilia
is top cop
for Marathon
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


New Sheriff Bob Peryam says
he wants a move toward commu-
nity-oriented policing in Monroe
County, and changes and reas-
signments announced Dec. 30
reflect that decision.
"Any new sheriff makes
changes...to fit their philosophy
of policing. The changes I made
are good fits for the stations the
captains are serving," he told the
Keynoter last week.
Lou Caputo was promoted to
captain in charge of Sector 7 in the
Upper Keys, as well as the Ocean
Reef Patrol Division. Formerly a
lieutenant under Peryam in
Marathon, Caputo is returning to
his roots in the Upper Keys.
"It makes him a good fit to do
community policing and form part-
nerships with the people he's

held Tuesday at Freeman Justice Center.


already associated with," Peryam
said. Caputo has lived in the Upper
Keys for more than 40 years.
The same goes for new Capt.
Chad Scibilia, who assumed
command of Sectors 4 and 5 and
the Special Operations Division.


'Agreement complicated'


TRAUIMASTAR / From 1

District. That district has its own
arrangements with Miami-based
rescue helicopters.
Currently the sheriff's office
pays costs of the helicopter, its
six pilots and three mechanics.
Monroe County Fire Rescue
provides the medical staff.
Peryam said the whole
Trauma Star program "would be
a better fit" under fire-rescue
operations.
Leadership at the Monroe
County Fire Rescue agency has
been in flux for several years, so
reaching an agreement with the
department has been complicat-
ed, the sheriff said.
The Monroe County
Commission ultimately will be
responsible for deciding who
runs the helicopter and how it
gets funded.
Sylvia Murphy, the Upper
Keys county commissioner, told
the TCA Thursday that she
remains uncertain the county can
afford Trauma Star.
"That's a lot of money and
the county is very short of
money," Murphy said. "Times


are getting worse, things are
going downhill and budgets are
getting tighter.':
Murphy said the county
should continue seeking agree-
ment with a private firm to han-
dle all county air ambulance
calls.
One proposal for the helicop-
ter special taxing district would
charge property owners south of
mile marker 95 more in Trauma
Star taxes than residents from
mile marker 95 north, which use
the Miami helicopters more.
"That stuck our feathers up,"
said Burke Cannon, a Tavernier
resident who lives within the
existing Upper Keys district but
south of marker 95.
Cannon said he remains
unconvinced the community can
afford costs for an ambulance
operation typically seen in large
cities.
Undersheriff Rick Ramsay
said Trauma Star was created "as
a life-saving asset" for areas of
the county that lacked air-ambu-
lance services:
"We have a very dangerous
road," Ramsay said of U.S. 1.
"The need is here...Saving lives
is expensive."


Scibilia replaces. Peryam as
Marathon's top cop. Scibilia
grew up in the Middle Keys and
is a graduate of Marathon High
School.
"He has those community
,contacts that will lend them-
selves to community policing,"
Peryam said.
Another change made by out-
going Sheriff Rick Roth on Dec.
29 was the reassignment of
Peryam's wife, Cindy, to the
head of the Accreditation
Division as a lieutenant. She for-
merly headed Internal Affairs,
but Lt. Bruce Winegarden now
assumes that role.
"I didn't have to move her
because there is no nepotism law
and she never reported to the
sheriff anyway, but I thought it
was in the best interest of the
agency to put her in a different
position," Peryam said.
Peryam indicated during the
campaign his wife would be reas-
signed should he be elected sheriff.
Among other changes Peryam
announced: Chief Ken Dugger
assumes command of Sector 1
and the Bureau of Operations;
Capt. Penny Phelps will head
Professional Standards; Capt.
Don Hiller heads Airport
Security; and the captain's posi-
tion at the Stock Island jail will
be announced at a later date.
Peryam also announced Rick
Ramsay will remain as undersh-
eriff, Chief Michael Rice
remains in command of the
Bureau of Administration and
Chief Tommy Taylor remains in
charge of the Bureau of
Corrections.

Convoy to Cuba?


CONVOY / From I

McPherson says he first
began talking to people in Key
West about going to Cuba at the
time of the hurricanes in the late
summer and fall. The Keys were
spared in the 2008 hurricane
season, while some of the
storms traveled over the spine of
Cuba, causing massive destruc-
tion.
"We should have been the
individuals ready to send them
aid," says McPherson, noting
that he tried to "get some move-
ment through Bush" but was
unsuccessful.
McPherson says he's been
working on the plan for a con-
voy to Cuba with residents of
Key West who enjoy a friend-
ship with the Obamas. But he
declined to share names of those
involved, calling them "very
private" people.
McPherson says he's also
working with people in Key
West to persuade the Obamas to

Navy asks live-aboards
to move away

About 40 live-aboard
boaters in a mooring field off
Navy-owned Fleming Key
found stickers on their boats
this week, asking them to
move.
Naval Air Station Key West
spokesman Jim Brooks said
that the boaters are being asked
to move their boats at least 400
yards away from an area of
Fleming Key that houses Coast
Guard munitions in an effort to
maintain a safety arc in the
event of an accident.
"It's a safety issue," said
Brooks. "We understand that
it's not going to happen
overnight. We just want them to
move as quickly as they can."
"They've softened their
position," says Dennis Krinitt,
who lives on board his boat in
the mooring field and called in
to radio stations on Thursday
morning to complain.
Anchorage off Fleming Key
is free. If boaters move to the
mooring field managed by the
City of Key West, they'll have
to pay around $290 a month.


li reprise the tra-
dition of the
president of
the United
* .' States using
the Truman
S Little White
_,...- HHouse as a
- winter home.
McPHERSON McPherson
says a written
invitation has already been sent
to president-elect Obama, not
by the City of Key West, but by
others in Key West who have a
connection to the incoming
administration.
President Harry S. Truman
spent 175 days of his presidency
at what is now called the
Truman Little White House, on
Front Street in Key West.
The home is undergoing a
five-year renovation, with work
scheduled to be completed on
time for Truman's 125th birth-
day in April.
Bob. Wolz, director of the
Truman Little White House
foundation, says. official letters
of invitation are to be sent to the
Obamas shortly after the inau-
guration later this month, invit-
ing them to come for the birth-
day celebration in April and stay
at the home.
As far as the Obamas using
the Truman Little White House
as a winter home, Wolz says
he's not sure whether that is
likely to happen.
"I think it's probable that
they would be going to Hawaii
because that's where he's from,"
Wolz told the Keynoter.
"However, I can picture him
coming to Key West because of
Truman's civil rights stance."
SPresident Harry S. Truman
drafted a number of executive
orders in Key West in the 1950s,
including orders that desegre-
gated the military and the feder-
al workforce.
President Bill Clinton and
Hillary Clinton visited the
Truman Little White. House in
2005. Wolz says that President
George W. Bush wanted to
come in the spring of 2008, but
that the Truman Little White
House had to decline the request
because the house was under
construction.
"We are hoping to have a for-
mal conversation before the end
of February," says McPherson.
"That's our goal. It doesn't
mean it's going to be met. But
that's our goal."

fish in the ocean.
It also ranks among the most
venomous, voracious and prolific.
Lionfish do not attack
humans but their poisonous pro-
tection means they are not
inclined to flee from divers
encroaching on their territory.
"They'll stand their ground.
That's why people can bump
into them," said Lad Akins, spe-
cial projects director at REEF.
Injuries have been reported in
every area where they've been
found. Effects of lionfish venom
can range from severe pain in the
extremities to partial paralysis.
A South Carolina diver active
in REEF's fish-identification pro-
gram spotted the lionfish Tuesday
afternoon on a ledge on the south-
east side of the Benwood wreck.
The diver, Becky Fowler, pho-
tographed the lionfish and care-
fully noted its location.
"She gave us a very.accuiate
description of where the fish
was," Akins said. "We were able
to follow Becky's directions
right to the location and there sat
the lionfish."
"Lionfish must be removed
from Keys waters before they
begin breeding and threaten the
natural marine ecosystem," said
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary Superintendent Dave
Score.
"We're focused on response
and prevention," said Score.
"Whether we can win this entire
war, we won this battle."
"The greatest reason for
alarm is the fact that lionfishh]

are economically important,"
federal fisheries ecologist James
Morris said. "Specifically the
snapper-grouper fishery that's a
valuable fishery for us."
Lionfish also could decimate
reef fish popular with Keys
divers, and species that eat reef-
threatening algae, Score said.
Lionfish were possibly
released into the ocean when a
hurricane surge flooded a South
Florida aquarium. Once seen as
a novelty in the Bahamas, they
now are seen as a plague, said
Akins. A handful of lionfish can
become a population of thou-
sands within months.
The fish found on Tuesday, a
male less than four inches in
length, triggered a planned
response effort. A five-member
-dive team logged details of the
lionfish's location at the reef
ledge 66 feet deep and shot

Keys Opinion


Lawmakers toy with

our bread and butter

Gutting state tourism spending shortsighted

Annual travel spending in Florida amounts to a $64.5 bil-
lion economic base
The tourism industry employs 742,600 Florida workers
The Sunshine State's tourism payroll last yearwas $17 billion

A few facts to keep in mind as we watched the Florida
Legislature this week toy with the idea of gutting the state's
tourism marketing program.
As of Wednesday, the Florida House wanted to cut nearly $13
million of Visit Florida's $23-million annual budget. The
Senate was looking at a far more reasonable $1.4-million
reduction.
As of Friday, it-looked like the mess was heading to confer-
ence committee to iron out differences.
But the process of how this was handled demonstrates the
ultimate failure of the legislative process to address the state's
economic problems.
State Rep. Ron Saunders, who met with a delegation of Keys
officials this week in Tallahassee, said it was like "eating our
seed corn," acknowledging that some kinds of expense cuts
cost us far more in the long run.
Just about a year ago, lawmakers acted in a wholly different
fashion when they heard state economists warn about rough
times coming. This was directly linked to record-high gas
prices and tightening credit a double whammy for a state that
relies on tourists and easy-money.
So in February of last year, Florida launched it's first nation-
al tourism ad campaign aimed at convincing visitors to come.
Fast-forward 11 months and this week's special-call session
to reduce state spending and the tourism promotion budget
must seem like an easy target.
There was even talk about closing down Florida's Welcome
Centers you know, the rest stops where road-weary travelers
can stop for a taste of fresh-squeezed Florida orange juice and
gets maps and brochures.
Realizing that tourism is the major engine that keeps
Florida's economy running, doesn't it seem counter-intuitive
that gutting the state's small tourism promotion money is a bit
short-sighted?
Just ask some of the old timers who have survived past eco-
nomic downturns, especially here in the Keys.
Then remember this: Florida tourism's $64 billion represents
a share of the state's gross domestic product'(GDP) 44 percent
greater than the construction industry here, and larger than the
sum total of all our exports (chiefly agricultural products,
seafood, specialized manufacture).
Talk about being shortsighted.

Sugar deal renews hopes for Everglades


EDITOR:
In recent weeks, we've seen plenty of criti-
cism about the details of the proposed deal
between the South Florida Water Management
District and U.S. Sugar Corp. to purchase
181,000 acres for the benefit of Everglades
restoration. While the deal is not perfect, perhaps
the naysayers cannot see the forest for the trees.
The very ability to manage water provide
drinking water, prevent flooding and maintain
basic ecosystem functions in South Florida is
at stake, and the opportunities made possible by
acquiring this land are key to our long-term suc-
cess or failure.
There is no question that our Everglades are
suffering. Every day that we don't move forward
on restoration, the intricate Everglades ecosystem
breaks down a little more.
Over the recent years, we suffered from one of
the longest and worst droughts in South Florida's
history. One result was a raging fire in eastern
Everglades National Park, an area constantly
starved for water. This fire burned almost 40,000
acres. Peat soil that took thousands of years to
accumulate was lost in a single afternoon.
Yet more recently, Water Conservation Area
3A, north of Everglades National'Park, was
drowning with dangerously high water levels.
These unnatural extremes are devastating not
only to the environment, but to our native
wildlife, including the Florida panther, American
crocodile, wood stork, snail kite, Cape Sable sea-
side sparrow and our coral reefs.


The harm we have witnessed from either too
much or not enough water in different parts of
the Everglades ecosystem is a stark demonstra-
tion of the well-documented, fundamental flaws
in our antiquated water management system. We
can only expect things to get worse if we don't
move forward, and fast. -
Much has been stated about the high cost of
this land purchase. Yet little attention has been
paid to the many benefits that will come from this
important investment in South Florida's future.
With more than 7 million people living in
South Florida, we've outgrown a water manage-
ment system built for fewer than 2 million resi-
dents. The new design takes the natural system
into account and will be a tremendous improve-
ment. And with the fortuitous U.S. Sugar land
acquisition, we'll now have the acreage required
to create reservoirs and treatment areas to restore
clean water flow from Lake Okeechobee to the
Everglades, reducing harmful discharges out to
our sensitive estuaries.
Is $1.3 billion too much to save this unique
ecosystem that exists nowhere else in the world,
and has received international recognition for its
incredible biodiversity? Is it too much to ensure
that we have a clean water supply and economic
development for future generations of South
Floridians? The Everglades Coalition of more
than 6 million members believes it is not.

Birds have a hero in Grinter


EDITOR:
This is the story of a person
very dedicated to her profession.
Kelly Grinter not only helps res-
cue different types of birds, but
seems very passionate to help
many other types of animals.
In May, I decided to ride my
bicycle north on the Overseas
Highway to stretch my legs out
and happened upon a wounded
bird on one of the bridges just a
few miles north of Marathon.
When I got off the bridge, a man
in a truck resting off the road pro-
ceeded to help me get the bird off
the busy bridge to see if it could
be rescued. This man worked for a
water treatment system in the
Keys, and called his wife to have
a person come out and check on
the bird.
The bird didn't appear to have
much life left in it, and when the
dedicated person Kelly Grinter
arrived within only 10 minutes,
the bird had expired. She
explained that the bird could be
preserved-to teach people about it.
The bird, she said was an osprey,
and had unique fishing claws


among, other physical characteris-
tics.
The story continues. The next
time I met her was on the original
Seven Mile Bridge, around Nov.
20. Again, I was riding my bicycle
to stretch my legs and I came
upon a bird sitting on the bridge
not moving. I called Kelly Grinter
and she said that was odd about
the bird not wanting to fly and
wanted to check things out her-
self.
She had to drive five miles by
car, then walk 1.5 miles to where I
was, which took a little time. I
guess the heron was resting, and
decided two humans were enough,
and flew off. We walked back to
her car, and I learned a lot about
wildlife from her stories.
Kelly Grinter has worked for
the Marathon Bird Rescue Center
for at least 14 years, and I am sure
she would be happy to get your
calls regarding helping injured
animals.

Citizens delivers coal for Christmas


EDITOR:
Along. with many Christmas
cards, I received a letter from
Citizens Property Insurance Corp.,
and it was not proclaiming the .
good news of Christmas. The let-
ter stated they were updating my
policy along with another 350,000
policies like mine. The purpose
was to ensure that I have suffi-
cient coverage for a major wind-
related loss and an easy-to-read
insurance policy. Has one ever
been written?
My current policy is being dis-
continued and I must re-apply for
whatever coverage Citizens thinks
is just and proper. My rates are
not being increased, however, they
want to assure me that I have
enough wind coverage to replace
my home after a total loss. If I do
not have enough coverage as
determined by Citizens, then I will
have to buy additional coverage
and my premium will increase.
Sounds like a rate increase to me.
Why is it not my choice as to the
amount.of coverage that I need?
Since 2000, my windstorm
rates have increased by more than
300 percent and in 2006 and 2007,
I was faced with the decision of
continuing or canceling my wind-
storm coverage. Fortunately, due
to action by Fair Insurance Rates, -
in Monroe and the Legislature, the


rates were rolled back and frozen.
As a result, I was able to continue
my coverage, even though it is not
full coverage; it was my choice.
In my case, and I'm sure the
same with others, my house will
never be totally destroyed by
wind. If it ever is totally
destroyed, it will be by a.combi-
nation of wind and water. If that
happens, then part of the loss will
be paid by wind and part by flood.
There is no way that Citizens
will ever pay for a total loss, so
why am I being forced to carry the
coverage, pay the increased premi-
ums and be again faced with the
decision of having to drop the
coverage all together? One size
does not always fit all. I guess
that it is just a good business deci-
sion to have everyone pay for full
coverage and then only, in most
cases, have to pay for a partial
loss.
It is my guess that upward of
50 percent of the 350,000 policy-
holders are in the same financial
situation that I am and will have
to make the same hard decision.
Apparently, Citizens and the
Legislature feel that it is better to
have a lot of homeowners with no
coverage rather than with some
coverage.

Debate over height variance


clouded by these 'hard times'


Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
While that's generally sound advice
and widely given, it brings special
meaning for business owners and resi-
dents in Marathon's Old Town.
Some, including boat yard owner
Sherry Popham, are alarmed at height
variances granted to the developer of a
new Hampton Inn.
And the fact that developer Peter
Rosasco also happens to be the City of
Marathon's contracted finance director
brings extra anguish to the debate.
Rosasco and his business partners pro-
pose to tear down some old single-story
buildings on the nearly five-acre parcel
they've assembled. And, they
want to build a new 80-room
hotel, which would be
Marathon's first in more than
a decade.
However, he and his archi-
tects wanted a three-story
hotel with a'lobby feature
that would reach 57 feet,
nearly 20 feet above the
city's existing building height
limits.
Interviewed back in early
December, Rosasco told the Wayne
Keynoter that he's "not ask- Keynote
ing anyone to bend any rules
for me."
When he brought his plans before the
city's Planning Commission last month,
they approved variances for the
Hampton project, although not all nine
requested. And lowered the height to 9
feet, 3 inches over the 37-foot limit.
Marathon Planning Commissioner
Larry Shaffer, the lone dissenting vote
at last month's meeting, has since filed
an appeal of his own board's actions.
And Shaffer is lambasting city rules that
require a $2,100 deposit to handle any
citizen appeal, a hot potato that is
expected to land at the feet of the city
council Tuesday.
The Planning Commission has final
say over such things as height variances
unless an appeal is made to the City
Council. And that now requires the up-
front money.
Enter Popham who sent out a blast e-
mail early this week trying to solicit
other residents to join her in ponying up
the $2,100 to begin the appeal process.
"It would only take 21 of us at $100
each or a few more at $50," she wrote
in her e-mail.
Then she acknowledged the tough,
economic, times, adding "we realize that


everyone is pretty tight right now and
few can cough up the entire amount."
That part about things being tight
strikes to the heart of the matter and the
advice about looking a gift horse in the
mouth.
Few would deny that Marathon could
use a new hotel, especially one with
moderate-priced rooms (once a main-
stay of Marathon's niche as a family
.fishing, vacation destination).
Rosasco said a new 80-room
Hampton would provide jobs for 20
people, and that's not counting employ-
ment potential from a related retail
development and possibly a 34-slip
marina envisioned to come
later.
"What I'm doing is some-
thing this community
needs," he told the Keynoter
back in December. "I'm tak-
1-,, ing a lot of risk moving for-
ward with doing something
that others aren't doing right
now, including my neigh-
bors."
That's a rather pointed ref-
erence to the moribund Faro
vlarkham Blanco Resort, which has
Publisher b6en shut down for years.
At one time, Faro Blanco
was the -"big" draw in
Marathon and I still run into folks who
remember boating down from Miami or
points north and spending long vaca-
tions fishing, boating and enjoying
Marathon's laid-back amenities.
Nothing fancy, mind you.
And some of the criticism being lev-
eled at Rosasco hearkens back to a
long-standing debate that sometimes
divides old timers and newly-arrived
developers, who envisioned Marathon
as the next big waterfront resort mecca.
Things didn't work out the way many
of those speculators (i.e. Cay Clubs,
Peebles etc.) envisioned and Marathon's
economy is still hurting from those
development misfires.
In the meantime, we sit dead in the
water with wonderful marina facilities
at Faro Blanco lying empty,
Earthmark's big Knights Key develop-
ment in limbo, and'two of our big
attractions Crane Point and Pigeon
Key struggling.
It's a shame we can't harness the ener-
gy now engaged in debating the
Hampton project and convert it to more
positive endeavqrs..that.can help salvage
our vital tourism economy., ,

County Commissioner Kim
Wigington, a Stock Island resi-
dent, said she's "lived this for the
last eight years.
"I'm pleased with the ruling,
that rates were reduced and that
people will get a percentage of
the interim rates in a refund," she
said. "They always said it was a
glowing report, when in fact it
was not."
The utility was allowed to
keep 98.15 percent of the money
it earned while the interim rate
hike was in place. The remaining
1.85 percent must be returned,
with interest.
Despite the commission's
findings, KW spokesman Bill
Barry says the company was
actually granted a 22.25 percent
revenue increase Tuesday.
"The average resident will see
their bill go down, but some of
the larger users will see their bill
go up," he said.
Barry questioned the scrutiny
placed on KWRU, calling it
"probably the most looked at
wastewater company in the coun-
try." He said public utilities like
the Aqueduct can change rates at
will, while private firms are sub-
ject to PSC oversight.
"This thing has been amazing
to watch. They've probably spent
hundreds of thousands of dollars
investigating this," Barry said.
The Commission finally heard
KWRU's request after granting
two extensions since January.
The delays dealt with the possi-
ble sale of their plant; first to the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
and later to developer New Stock
Island Properties.
KWRU and the Aqueduct,
which is designing and installing
sewer systems for Monroe
County, have a long history of
disagreement over who can best

Acevedo: More cuts coming


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Cuts in school funding to bal-
ance the state's $2.3-billion budg-
et shortfall will likely cost Keys
schools another $1.3 million.
That's what came out of
Tallahassee this week as state
lawmakers convened for a two-
week special session to trim state
spending.
The proposed school cuts
amount to $465 million
statewide, including a cut of 2
percent (or $85.42) in the state's
base allocation of $3,886 per
pupil.
That will result in a $1.3-mil-
lion cut in Monroe County, which
receives about $65 million in
state school funding.
The cuts were anticipated by
Monroe County Schools Super-
intendent Randy Acevedo, who
last month said the district would
need to cut $3 million to absorb
the latest round of state cuts along
with declines in the district's
other main revenue sources -
property and sales taxes.
Acevedo said he would make
up the rest of the shortfall, more
than $1 million, mainly through
employee attrition, which he said
should be considerable this year.
He said employee layoffs might
be necessary if the state cuts any
further.
School board member Steve
Pribramsky said school board
lobbyist Vern Crawford indicated
adult education and vocational
programs, such as dual enroll-
ment, nursing and culinary arts,
could also see disproportionate
cuts from the state this year.
"Right now, I'mfeeling a little


bit of comfort," said Acevedo,
who was in Tallahassee for the
session and earlier feared cuts
could reach as high as 4 percent.
"We're still looking at cutting
a total of $3 million, when you
look at the state cuts and drops in
sales tax and property tax rev-
enues," he said.
The school board already
approved $2.1 million in cuts
Acevedo presented last month.
Those cuts mostly target after-
school and summer school pro-
grams, teachers' professional
development and school discre-
tionary spending.
The board is scheduled to dis-
cuss the latest state funding cuts
at their meeting starting at 10:30
a.m. Tuesday at Coral Shores
High School on Plantation Key.
."We knew these were com-
ing," Pribramsky said. "I assume
we'll start seeing budget amend-
ments come forward for the first
cuts we made. I'm waiting to hear
what the superintendent plans to
do now."
Pribramsky reiterated his con-
cerns of the school district mov-
ing more money from the capital
budget, which pays for school
construction and other projects,
into the operating budget.
He also said the district's
reserves, now about 6 percent of
the operating budget of $90.5
million, should not be raided.
Miami-Dade and .other Florida
districts are now being monitored
by the state due td depleted
reserves.
"I have no interest in dipping
into the fund balance at all this
year," Pribramsky said. "I think

next year will be very, very diffi-
cult as well."
Many expect the state to cut
funding even further later this
year to help balance the 2009-10
budget.
Late last year, Acevedo told
the board that the district's 2009-
10 operating budget could drop
by $4 billionn from this year,
bringing it down 'to about
$86.5 million.

Next reading set

input possible
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission on Tuesday passed the
first reading of an ordinance
that makes residential recycling
mandatory. The ordinance
passed by a 4-3 vote after
almost two hours of testimony
froin supporters.
Approval came as a surprise,
as only Mayor Morgan
McPherson and Commissioner
Teri Johnston, the ordinance
sponsor, declared their support
in the initial discussion.
Commissioners Barry Gibson
and Clayton Lopez had a
change of heart as the voting
roll was being called. -
"I think it probably shocked
some of the commissioners
when I seconded the motion,"
Gibson said on Thursday.
According to the ordinance,
after a 127month education pro-
gram to include television com-
mercials, inserts into utility
bills and volunteer/community
interfacing, the city's Code
Compliance department will
start enforcing the recycling
law. Households found to be
non-compliant will be subject


to fines and, eventually, a halt
to trash pick up.
"The last think I want is put-
ting neighbors against neigh-
bors, anonymous complaints to
Code Compliance," Gibson
said. "We don't have the staff,
the manpower or the time."
At the meeting Johnston
asserted that other communities
with mandatory programs had
very little need to enforce com-
pliance.
Commissioner Bill Verge
spoke out adamantly against the
recycling ordinance and was
met with boos, hissing and a
call of "We just won't vote for
you," from, the assembled sup-
porters, many of whom wore
green shirts.
"That's typical Key West.
It's the independent spirit down
here," Verge said Thursday.
"It's not a recycling ordinance;
it's a punitive ordinance. That's-
my problem with it. It just kind
of doesn't fit into the Keys way
of doing things."
Verge says he supports recy-
cling but thinks that-community
education and spirit could do
the same thing as a mandatory
ordinance.
"I know you can rally the
people of Key West," he said.
"We rallied during Wilma."

spoke out in favor of the ordi-
nance during at presentation to
the commission. "What a great
opportunity to make history for
Key West," he said. "It's impos-
sible to think of it in terms of a
local decision. What is happen-
ing locally has a great deal to
do with what is happening
globally."
Belland presented a
slideshow in conjunction with
his speech, which included a
picture of a polluted sewer pipe
at the intersection of Caroline
and Duval streets. "There is a
moral imperative to recycle," he
said. "The main business of this
city is meeting the expectations
of residents and visitors. What
is our image? What is our
message?'
"Why did they leave com-
mercial out of the ordinance?"
Verge asked, noting that 50 per-
cent of recyclable waste on the
island is generated by commer-
cial businesses.
"The majority of the trash we
receive comes from commer-
cial," Gibson said. "I would
have rather seen them go to the
commercial recycling first."
Waste Management now
provides one free recycling bin
to each household in Key West.
To have a bin delivered, call
296-8297 or pick up a bin at
633 Palm Ave. between 7 a.m.

Boatyard owner to fight Hampton height


Popham raising
money to appeal
Rosasco's variance
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It appears Marathon Planning
Commissioner Larry Shaffer
isn't the only one upset with a
height limit variance his own
board granted to city Finance
Director Peter Rosascb last
month for a Hampton Inn. '
Sherry Popham, a former
Monroe County planning com-
missioner, said she's received "at
least" 150 responses to an e-mail
sent out Jan. 6 hoping to raise
the $2,100 deposit- it takes to
appeal the variance. She said 27
residents pledged anywhere
from $20 to $100 as of Thursday
afternoon.
"I feel strongly about keeping
our height restrictions in place
and the granting of variances
along these lines are a slippery
slope down the path of not hav-
ing height restrictions," Popham
said. "It would set a serious
precedent."
Rosasco plans to build an 80-
room Hampton Inn on his 4.81-
acre lot near mile marker 48 in
Old Town.
Popham said she wants rede-
velopment in Old Town to
reflect the character and culture
of the city, not "anytown
U.S.A." She and husband,
Bruce, own the Marathon Boat
Yard in Old Town.
On Dec. 15, Rosasco's devel-
opment 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
him a nine foot, three inch
across-the-board variance equal
to the 25 percent variance
Planning Director George
Garrett is able to grant on his
own, without Planning Com-
mission approval.



The variances
are for
architectural
features
inherent in the
Hampton Inn
design not
for habitable
space.


Rosasco, a Marathon resident
and certified public accountant,
was adamant his position with
the city played no role in the
commission's decision. He's
also pointed out the variances
are for architectural features
inherent in the Hampton Inn
design not for habitable
space.
Bobby Deese, co-owner of
Sickels Motorcycle Corp., adja-
cent to Rosasco's property, says

variance or not, the Hampton Inn
will be a welcome sight.
"I think .it will help us
because we have rental bikes; we
have accessories and stuff. So if
they're staying there they can
walk right next door," Deese told
the Keynoter.
Randy Botteri, the general


manager at Hall's Diving Center,
says height variances present a
problem in Monroe County.
"We need the tourism and the
businesses so we should give
some leeway, but at the. same
time we don't want to encour-
age" height variances, he said.
Shaffer has applied for a fee


waiver. That application will be
considered by the City Council
at Tuesday's regular meeting,
but Popham is prepared to use
the money she's collecting to
fund the appeal if necessary.
Tuesday's meeting is sched-
uled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Center.

16 percent fewer
people flying
in and out
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com

As work nears completion on
a new $31 million terminal, the
county is set to announce that rid-
ership at Key West International
Airport declined 15.8 percent
last year.
"Because- of the economy
there's been fewer people flying.
The airlines have cut back on
capacity, meaning the number of
flights in and out of Key West
International are less and the
number of passengers are less,"
county Airports Director Peter
Horton told the Keynoter.
A total of 538,066 passengers
came through Key West
International in 2007, while just
453,000 used the airport in 2008.
But the airport served nearly
40,000 passengers during a busy
holiday season in December,
improving the total passenger
load for the year.
Harold Wheeler, director of
the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council, says he
doesn't think overall tourism
numbers will be affected greatly
by declining ridership at Key
West International. That's
because the percentage of visitors
driving to the Keys each year is
traditionally in the high 80s.
"I think they can get a better
airfare into Fort Lauderdale and
Miami than they can into the Key
West airport, which is much
more expensive," Wheeler said,
adding many visitors then rent a
car and make the drive down.
Jodi Weinhofer, president of
the Lodging Association of the
Florida Keys and Key West,
agreed with Wheeler and said
fuel costs played a large role in
people's decision to drive in
2008.
"When the fuel prices went
through the roof, the portion of
the flight down here got so
expensive that-manypeople drive
down," she said, adding the abil-
. ity t6 reach the K'eys'by car is&a
"huge asset" over other island.

Brendan, 4-2.
The Conchs, who hadn't
played in 19 days because of
the holiday byeak, fell behind
midway through the first half
when a 30-foot shot sailed


over keeper Jess Bodmer.
Minutes later, Krizzie Menez
scored her 23rd goal of the
season to tie the score, 1-1. It
was only one of eight first-
half Key West shots on goal
that found the net.
Led by freshman Kendall
Galvan, the Conchs took con-
trol early in the second half.
She scored for a 2-1 lead,
then assisted on a 30-yard
shot by fellow freshman
Robyn DeRoche.
"Robyn has been creating
opportunities but has been
unable to finish," said coach

Mater Academy


game today at 7 p.m.


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Wearing down in the fourth
quarter, the Key West High
School boys basketball team lost
to Center of Life, 60-47,
Thursday afternoon in Miami.
It was the third consecutive
loss for the Conchs, who fell to
6-6. They were coming off a 56-
52 loss Tuesday night at Booker
T. Washington.
"Oh, my goodness, they were
huge they had guys 6-4, 6-4
and 6-9," coach Paul Davis said
of Center of Life. "But we
played real smart, offensively
and defensively. We hung in
until the fourth quarter, when we


hit a cold stretch."
Senior Vladimyr Sibera and
sophomore Keith Valdez each
scored 15 points for the Conchs,
and Nick Scammacca added 8.
Despite the loss, the Conchs
were upbeat. "We're positive,"
Davis said. "It's all about the
effort, and we had it."
In Tuesday's loss to Booker
T. Washington, Sibera scored 20
points and Valdez had 14.
-The Conchs will play Mater
Academy at 7 p.m. tonight in a
District 16-4A game at the
Bobby Menendez Gym. Mater
defeated the Conchs, 65-33, in
December.


Foot stomping frenzy


The complete Florida Keys
news and information source.


WRESTLING / From 15

Conchs' 103-pound Glenn
Evans pinning Coral Shores'
Alex Aguilar to the shrieking
approval of the 1,000 or so stu-
dents. Key West's Max Llama
(112 pounds) then won by a pin,
and teammate Greg Garcia (119)
emerged victorious after spend-
ing considerable time entwined
with Daniel Doyle.
In the 125-pound match, Key
West's Oscar Fernandez strug-
gled to pin Yordan Polanco,
whose shoulder was an inch off
the mat, then a half-inch, then a
quarter of an inch as the fans
created a frenzy of foot stomp-
ing. Referee Tom Snyders, a flu-
orescent orange whistle in his
mouth, was down in the mix too,
almost like a third wrestler,
pounding the mat when
Fernandez at last got the pin. "I
tried to squeeze his head as hard
as I could," Fernandez said.
After Casey Parker (130) had
pinned the Hurricanes' Johnny
Angel, the Conchs' Ben Covan
(135) slammed Sterling Ross to
the mat with a smack that could
be heard above the roaring
crowd. After eventually pinning
Ross, Covan smiled with joy as
classmates rushed down to con-
gratulate him.
By 4 o'clock, most of the stu-
dents who had paid $2 to get
out of their last period class -
'were gone, headed out toward


the buses. Before a diminished
crowd, Coral Shores fought
back.
A slammer named Joshua
Ritz 140 pounds, ruddy-faced,
blond hair ,spilling out of his
headgear, his arm tattooed with
RITZ in Old English letters -
pinned his Conch opponent to
improve his season record to 20-
3. Afterward, his mother,
Michelle, slipped him $20 for
something to eat on the way
home.
Luke Terrill (145), Will
Mulkeen (160) and Gregory
Angel (171) then reeled off vic-
tories for Coral Shores but it
would be Key West's day.
Tim "Giant Killer" Czernek
(189 pounds) pinned Daryl
Baker; Paul Leatherwood (215)
pinned Courtney Dixon, and
heavyweight Kevin Pibramsky
defeated Michael Thelus in an
overtime match in which both
labored like sumo wrestlers. "I
just love overtime," the 175-
pound Pibramsky said, as he
trudged off the mat.
The Conchs won, 54-21, and,
afterward, the coaches discussed
with delight holds such as the
double-arm bar and "the butch-
er." Key West's John Moeller
then said to Coral Shores' Mark
Terrill, "I really respect what
you guys have done." Both men
smiled as they walked off the
'mat, which the Conchs, in one
'last bit of exertion, were rolling
(up.

year we don't have that,"
Freeman said. "Last year's
team wasn't a great team but it
didn't matter what our record
was, they wanted to work
hard."
That's not the case this year,
apparently, as few players
showed up for workouts over
the holidays. Freeman said
freshman standout Dwayne
Ellis has been suspended for
the next four games a tough
stretch including three district
games for "not working
hard." Another player was sus-
pended for missing the team


bus on a road trip.
"This isn't an entitlement
program; if you want to play
you earn your time," Freeman
said. "It's an attitude here in
Marathon that we need to
change."
One player who.did show up
over the break and who contin-
ues to post huge numbers for
the Dolphins is center Travis
Leachman. The junior had 23
points, 15 rebounds and eight
blocked shots against Ronald
Reagan.
* The Dolphins started out
well, holding the Bison to just
four points in the first quarter.
Junior Nyran Ross had three
three-pointers in the opening


frame. Nate Kitchen scored
nine points in the second quar-
ter to help the Dolphins build a
26-14 halftime lead.
The Bison closed the gap to
eight at the end of the third
quarter, as Freeman said the
team struggled playing with a
lead. The team's made a habit
of falling behind early in
games this season, only to
make a late charge.
"In the fourth quarter we
came alive. They started press-
ing us and we were breaking
it," Freeman said. Marathon
outscored Ronald Reagan 18-8
in the final quarter to pull
away.
Leachman scored 12 of

The Key West Art and
Historical Society's Custom
House Museum will showcase
local sculptor John Martini's
work with an opening reception
from 7-9 p.m. on Jan. 17.
"For the past 30 years Key
West has been an excellent
place for me to develop as an
artist," says Martini. "This
show is like a.homecoming,
because my first studio in 1978
was a few buildings down from
the Custom House. I started my.
Key West years walking past
the old Custom House, almost
daily."
Martini splits his time
between Key West and
Veuxhaulles-Sur-Aube, in
France. His sculptures are
shown in galleries in Georgia,
California, New Mexico, New
Jersey, and Paris.
When in Key West, Martini
often works during the evening
and continues till dawn. "He
usually begins his work after
nightfall and continues until the

has come. When Martini works
he goes into a sort of meditation
and loses all sense of time,"
said arts writer Edmund White.
Martini's creatures seem to
have been plucked from some
fantasy world, but have their
own almost-human leanings.
They've gained a great follow-
ing in Key West and Martini
sculptures can be seen at popu-
lar stops such as the Green
Parrot Bar on Whitehead Street,
and in a number of residential
gardens. Most of the sculptures
are fashioned from steel, and
show an influence of the
Caribbean.
Martini's sculptures have
been exhibited in recent years at
the Lucky Street Gallery on
White Street and at Fort
Zachary Taylor for Sculpture
Key West. They'll be at the
Custom House on Front Street
in Key West through March.
All are invited to meet the
artist at the Jan. 17 reception.

Boogie on Little Torch Key


Parmer's Resort
hosts first-annual
music festival
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

There is probably no better
spot in America for an outdoor
music festival this time of year
than the Lower Keys. There's
space to spread out, with few
neighbors and nothing else hap-
pening for miles.
The owner of Parmer's Resort
on Little Torch Key, it seems, has
come to realize just how perfect
a venue he has.
Parmer's is hosting the first-
ever Boogie on the Bay music
festival, to take place on Sunday
Jan. 11 from noon until 8 p.m.
Like a lot of festivals in the
Keys, this one came about as a
way to bring tourists into town
when things are slow here.
Jay Marzella, the owner of
Parmer's, says he was sitting
around with some friends and
associates a couple of months
back, talking about the worsening
economy. "I said: 'You know
guys, it's OK to talk about it, but
what are we gonna do about it?'"
he told L'Attitudes.
Marzella started looking
around for bands, traveling to
music festivals like the
Southwest Florida Blues Festival
in Punta Gorda. And he put an ad
on Craigs List, asking for great
musicians who'd like to make
their way to the Keys in January.
He got 300 responses.
"All of a sudden I'm in the
music business and hearing a lan-
guage I didn't speak before," he
says.
At the Boogie on the Bay fes-
tival, you'll hear four nationally-
.touring bands, plus Howard
Livingston and his Mile Marker
24 Band to cap things off.
The setting is the center lawn
at the resort, just off U.S. 1 at
mile marker 28.5, with a stage
set up at the edge of the Florida
Bay. The five bands will play
oldies, jazz, blues and funk for
eight hours while festival goers
relax on the lawn. No food can
be brought in. But you won't
need it.
Boondocks on Ramrod Key is
serving about everything you
could want. For $3-$8 you'll be
able to buy grilled salmon,
shrimp, Italian sausage, smoked


fish dip, "the best potato salad
anywhere" and sliders. At the bar
they'll be serving wine, beer and
rum punch at modest prices.
The weather forecast is good,
with sun during the day, and a
full moon rising up over the bay
as the bands play. Here's the
music line-up: Audioform, an
eight-piece band out of North
Carolina, will play jazz, funk and
soul with big horns and a groove-
oriented rhythm section; Karma,
a group of six from Tampa, will
play classic covers and old .


school melodies; DOGFISH,
from Pine Island, Fla. will blend
blues and rock into a unique mix;
Deb & the Dynamics from Fort
Myers will have everyone on
their feet (Marzella's prediction)
with a high-energy mix of
rhythm & blues, rock, jazz and
funk; and Howard Livingston
and the Mile Marker 24 Band
will be playing the finest in 'Trop
Rock' including songs from the
band's new CD "I'm Living on
