Budget cuts start to hurt


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


After Florida lawmakers put
the final stamp on a downsized
state budget this week, social-
service agencies in the Florida
Keys are bracing for lots of bad
news.
"This is not a good time for


Keys social-service agencies feeling
- real pain from state's budget slashing


any of us," said Jamie Pipher,
executive director of the
Guidance Clinic of the Middle
Keys. "We're holding our
breath."


The Guidance Clinic, which
offers mental-health and sub-
stance-abuse services to more
than 1,400 people annually,
already knows to expect a 4 per-
cent cut amounting to an esti-
mated $100,000 in some con-

Keys lose 2 luminaries


Keynoter Staff


Key West lost two luminaries
Tuesday: Jean Klausing, the
longtime general manager of
Sloppy Joe's Bar on Duval Street
in Key West, and Deo Fisher, the
widow of the late famed treasure
hunter Mel Fisher.
Klausing died at age 75 after a
long illness. Fisher died of cancer
in Montana.


Klausing moved to Key West
from Belgium about 30 years ago
and came on board as the general
manager of Sloppy Joe's, a
mecca for Ernest Hemingway
fans, in 1978; during his 23-year
tenure, he hired a core of long-
term staff and initiated the
Hemingway Look-Alike Contest.
"Jean was pretty much. Mr.


Sloppy Joe's," Marketing
Director Donna Edwards said.
"His death was a shock to all of
us. We never thought we would
lose Jean this early."
Edwards said Klausing will be
remembered fondly by everyone
who worked with him and by
those who knew him.
"Jean was always the

"That's just one of many

we make our plans later this
month."

sixth-graders
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
District will investigate whether
sixth-graders can be moved out
of potentially unsafe classrooms
at Horace O'Bryant Middle
School in Key West and into
classrooms at nearby elementary
schools.
The proposal came unexpect-
edly during Tuesday's School
Board meeting in Tavernier,
when the board was considering
the possibility of allowing the
Montessori Elementary Charter
School in Key West to expand
its curriculum to the sixth grade.
"Can we expand all of our
elementary schools and reduce
HOB to just seventh and eighth
grade to get some construction
going there?" board member
Steve Pribramsky asked.

Randy Acevedo and

Found Keys
fish may not
be only one
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Where one lionfish is found,
many others almost certainly
lurk, says Bahamas dive opera-
tor Bruce Purdy.
"You probably have a whole
bunch down there in the Keys,"
said Purdy. "It takes a few
months after they settle before
people start seeing them."
The first Pacific lionfish spot-
ted in the Bahamas was reported
by one of Purdy's Blackbeard's
Cruises boats in November
2004. Now, the venomous lion-
fish are common throughout
Bahamian waters.
"Some of'the areas are getting
overwhelmed," Purdy said. "The
population explosion is incredi-
ble. The numbers are huge com-
pared to what they were just two
years ago."
The first confirmed sighting
and capture of a Pacific lionfish
in the Florida Keys happened
last week on a deep reef at the
Benwood Ledge, off Key Largo.
"Remember that nobody goes
to two-thirds of the [Keys under-
water] habitat," Purdy said.
"Lionfish can be on the deep
reefs, or in the mangroves or
way out in the Dry Tortugas.
Nobody knows."
South Carolina diver Becky
Fowler photographed the Keys
lionfish in about 65 feet of water
not far from the Benwood
wreck.
"I thought that can't be a lion-
fish, they don't have lionfish in
the Keys," recounted Fowler,
diving off a Silent World boat.
"But there wasn't anything else
it could possibly be."
Fowler read in the Reef
Environmental Education
Foundation newsletter about
efforts to keep lionfish out of the
Keys. She also has seen the
spread of lionfish in the
Bahamas while on vacation from
her accounting profession.
"1 was in Freeport last
September," she said. "There are
quite a number of them. It was
common to see three or four
lionfish on every dive."
A dive team from. REEF, the
Florida Keys National Marine


Sanctuary and Quiescence
Diving Center quickly found and
netted the lionfish Jan. 7 at the
site described by Fowler.
Lionfish sport an array of
feathery -plumed spines, all of
which pack a strong venom jolt.
"The first time 1 got hit, the
spine nearly went through my
hand," Purdy said. "It hurt so
bad I wanted to cut my hand off
with a meat cleaver. It's much
worse than an urchin sting."
While usually painful and
occasionally causing temporary
paralysis, lionfish stings are not
considered fatal. But any serious
injury at depth can threaten a
diver's life.
Treatment with hot water, a
common remedy for jellyfish
stings, helped make the pain
bearable, Purdy said..
"A bunch of people [in the
Bahamas] have been stuck," he
said, "but you almost have to
work at it. Usually somebody
moves their hand and hits one, or
isn't looking where they're
going."
Lionfish are not aggressive
but the potent protection of their
venom means they feel no need
to flee from people or large pred-
ators.


The primary concern, say
experts, is that lionfish breed
rapidly and eat just about any-
thing. That could upset the eco-
logical balance at the Keys reef,
and reduce the numbers of food
fish and popular reef fish.
Lionfish apparently have no
natural predators in the Atlantic
Ocean.
"We have a response plan to
control them if possible," said
Dave Score, the Keys sanctuary
superintendent. "We believe we
have the opportunity because of
the large number of divers in the
Keys. They can be part of the
solution."
One suggestion: Find a cook-
ing recipe for lionfish, like the
blackened-redfish craze that
nearly depleted the redfish stock.
"They actually are very tasty.
I've eaten a lot of them," said
Purdy. "The problem is that a
lionfish filet is about what you'd
get from a small grunt."
The best hope, he believes,
"is to spend a bunch of money
finding out what controls the
populations in the Pacific."
Anyone seeing a lionfish
should report it immediately, but
do not attempt to capture it. Call
REEF at 852-0030 or the Mote
MEERA project at 395-8730.

potentially work, as long as the
students don't suffer academi-
cally and parents and teachers
support it.
"I'd ask you [board mem-
bers] to talk to some of your
constituents, teachers and par-
ents, because I don't want to
chase something you all are not
going to support," Acevedo said.
"Yes, you could vacate some of
those rooms that are leaking."
Horace O'Bryant has been in
disrepair since it was flooded
during the 2005 hurricane sea-
son. Walls and floors are dam-
aged and several classrooms
require buckets in between stu-
dent chairs to collect water from
leaking roofs.
The school has been sched-
uled to be rebuilt since the
storms, but shrinking budgets
have forced-the district to wait
until more capital funds are.


available, which Acevedo said
would rely on federal money or
an economic turnaround.
Henriquez said there are 265
sixth- to eighth-graders at
Horace O'Bryant, and moving
sixth-graders out could create
space for rebuilding.
He said Poinciana
Elementary School is already at
capacity, but Gerald Adams,
Sigsbee and Glynn Archer ele-
mentary schools could accom-
modate more students.
Board member said parents
of fifth-grade students could be
given the choice of keeping their
children at their current elemen-
tary school for sixth grade or
having them go to Horace
O'Bryant.
"It's hard to balance health
and safety concerns [at Horace
O'Bryant] versus curriculum,"
board Vice Chairwoman Debra
Walker said. "But it's a good
plan."


Help for vets is
just a call away

The U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs plans to re-
open enrollment in its health
care system by July, and the
Monroe County Veterans
Affairs Office can help those
interested.

Saunders: 'Pain and suffering'


BUDGET CUTS / From I

Retarded Citizens, Executive
Director Diana Flenard said her
agency has lost $324,000 from its
total $2.75 million budget since
last July.
"It's a critical mess," Flenard
said. "I've worked .for MARC
and other agencies dealing with
the developmentally disabled for
25 years, and I've never see it this
bad. The worst of it is, we don't
even know what's going to hap-
pen for [the new state budget]
starting in July."
Whatever happens when the
special legislative session to cut
the $66 billion state budget clos-
es this week, state Rep. Ron
Saunders said the cuts of about
$2.5 billion will not end there.
"Revenue is continuing to fall


so I don't think we've hit bottom
yet," Saunders said Tuesday.
"There's going to be a lot of pain
and suffering."
Saunders said he planned to
vote against the budget package
this week "because of the cuts to
education and social services."
"The problem is, two-thirds of
the budget is education and social
services, so that's what's going to
be cut," he said. "Some of these
cuts will affect [service]
providers."
Saunders said cuts across the
board would be worse without
current plans to raid some dedi-
cated trust funds set up to remain
separate from the general budget.
"I'm in agreement with what's
being done but some of those
trust funds are for social servic-
es," he said.

utive director of the Florida Keys
Outreach Coalition for the
Homeless, said all sources of
funding have been reduced while
local needs have increased "dra-
matically."
"It's not just the state cutting
its budget, it's all down the line,
from the federal government to
the county," Braddock said.
"Everything, including private
giving, has gone down consider-
ably."
The budget for the five Keys
facilities maintained by the coali-
tion to house about 250 people
each. night likely will be down 40
percent this year, Braddock said.
"The bottom line is if we con-
tinue down this road, we are
looking at a significant reduction
in services which potentially
could mean closing or more of
our facilities," Braddock said.
"There are things like electric-
ity, water, sewer, insurance and
administrative overhead that
must be paid, but these are not
easily funded."
MARC has cut most of its
staff back to 30 to 35 hours week-
ly, Flenard said. "We've already
let four people go, and not filling
any position that becomes
empty."

seat restaurant and bar at 3820
N. Roosevelt Boulevard.
"It's going to be what you
see when you come into
town," said Amy Kimball-
Murley, the city's planning
director. "Something that
makes you feel like you've
arrived in Key West."
The development agree-
ment, if passed, would roll all


necessary city approvals, con-
ditional uses and variances
into one phased project for
what's known as the triangle.
Planning Board member
Barry Barroso, a plumber by
trade, sees the project as a way
to stimulate Key West's econo-
my.
"This whole town needs
work," he said. "Spottswood is
a strong name down here.
They've done a lot of good
work. It all trickles down.
We're all here together."
With such a large property
and complicated plan, "This is
the kind of project, in my
mind, that's perfect for a
development agreement,"
Kimball-Murley said.
The City Commission has
already granted preliminary
approval to the development
agreement; if the Planning
Board approves it, it will go
back to the commission for
final approval that would give
Spottswood five years to initi-
ate construction.
The Planning Board will
also hear two requests to trans-
fer transient licenses to 718
Duval St. from separate loca-
tions.
The Planning Board meets
Thursday at 6 p.m. at Old City
Hall on Greene Street.

Recycling law needs

commercial component

There was much. debate last week in Key West about a
mandatory recycling ordinance that carries enforcement teeth.
City Commissioner Teri Johnston has been working on the
recycling issue for more than a year, so last Tuesday's debate
should not have caught anyone by surprise.
The ordinance passed on first reading by a 4-3 vote after
nearly two hours of public comment.
Commission chambers were filled with supporters of recy-
cling, many wearing distinctive green T-shirts. Members of
Green Living and Energy Education (GLEE), along with rep-
resentatives of the Keep Key West' Clean and Green
Committee and the city's Ambassadors Program, were out in
force.
After the close vote, some wondered about the three no-votes
(cast by commissioners Bill Verge, Danny Kolhage and Mark
Rossi). Commissioners Barry Gibson and Clayton Lopez were
swing votes, joining Mayor Morgan McPherson and Johnston.
. Chris Belland, chief executive officer of Historic Tours of
America and champion of the city's Keep Key West Clean and
Green Committee, told commissioners they faced a "moral
imperative to recycle."
Verge, who has championed voluntary recycling efforts in the
past, said the punitive nature of the ordinance is what caused
him to vote no. "This can be accomplished through leadership
roles. I know you can rally the people of Key West."
That may be a tall order, even under the best of circumstances.
One of the major failings of the ordinance as written is its
focus solely on residential recycling. As this newspaper has
reported extensively over the past two years, commercial users
are the biggest potential sources for cost-effective recycling.
In fact, large corporate players like Publix, Winn-Dixie,
Home Depot and others already contract for waste hauling that
maximizes recycling and reuse. Most of the fiberboard boxes
used to ship food products and other goods are being captured
and returned to plants that recycle them for additional uses.
Gainesville presents a good lesson in the realities of commu-
nity recycling. That college town passed a residential recycling
ordinance in 1997. Today, nearly a decade later, Gainesville
residential recycling hits roughly 31 percent. Commercial cus-
tomers in that town think of all the beer bottles, cans and
food containers produced there barely recover 13 percent of
potential recyclables.
Education will be key, but Key West has only begun the work
to make recycling -effective. Consider last week's work just the
first step.

We shouldn't reach out to Cuba until freedom arrives


EDITOR:
In your Jan. 10 edition, there is an article
that says the Key West mayor wants
President-elect Obama to allow people close
to the future president to establish a diplo-
matic convoy and go to Cuba. Well, since
Mr. Obama is willing to meet without pre-
conditions with any dictator, including the
president of Iran, Hugo Chavez from
Venezuela and the Castro brothers, I guess he
will s.ucceed.
Now, let me remind him that when you
wish to extend an olive branch, you should at
least require that the communist regime free
all political prisoners there. Of course, what
the mayor apparently does not know is that
no matter what you give them, they will not
reciprocate.
It's well known that Fidel Castro was
involved in the conspiracy that killed
President Kennedy, and is also well known
that their leaders have been insulting the
American government every time they speak
in public. I guess that since he is relatively
young, he does not know the billions that the
Cuban government expropriated from law-


abiding Cuban and American citizens,
besides technically expelling us from our
homeland.
How is it possible that an apparently good
person and politician like Mayor Morgan
McPherson is willing to reach so low? I can
guarantee you that our congresswoman,
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, will not be aboard that
sinking ship. Is the mayor doing this think-
ing that it will help Key West in the future?
If and when (because I expect that Mr.
Obama will do it) we establish diplomatic
relations with Cuba, the tourism here will
not improve. If you want to go to Cuba, you
will do it from Miami or any other place
rather than from Key West. You will proba-
bly not want to ride the two-lane highway
from Miami to Key West if you are traveling
to Cuba. And of course, with the Cuban
economy in ruins, don't expect anyone from
there to come here to spend money. The few
that come now get here with a few pennies,
expecting to get money from their families
here.

Through your support and generosity, we

toys.
With the assistance of Burton Memorial
United Methodist Church and the Sheriff's

were distributed to children who otherwise
would not have had as joyous a Christmas.
Our special thanks to the Tavernier Town

heart to know that someone won't have this
little guy home with them.
I knew he didn't survive so I called Stand
Up for Animals immediately and spoke to a
lady and explained what had just happened. I
had asked if she or someone from the shelter
could pick up this little guy before other cars
continued to run over him. She was there in
about five minutes. I don't know her name
but I thank her so much for coming out to
pick up this little guy.
I would hope that this letter will remind
pet owners to please keep their pets in the
house or in a safe place away from the high-
way. Please don't let your dogs run loose.
U.S. 1 is not very forgiving sometimes and
this could happen to you.
Seeing this happen just broke my heart.

FKCC's growth will only help the Keys


EDITOR:
While our community is, under-
standably, looking for economic
diversity, we are fortunate to have
a flourishing bright spot in our
own back yard. Florida Keys
Community College has posted
unprecedented enrollment growth
in the past year, making FKCC the
state's fastest-growing community
college by a mile.
The potential economic boon
from a vibrant public educational
institution cannot be overstated.
For example, academic program
expansions draw faculty and stu-
dents into our community and
spawn job growth. This phenome-
non will be amplified as FKCC
rolls out four-year degrees in the
coming years. Local businesses
choosing to utilize FKCC's vast
job training and continuing educa-
tion programs (rather than farming
out for those services) will save
thousands of dollars.
FKCC's planned capital
improvements and facilities
upgrades will employ numerous
tradesmen and professionals
throughout Monroe County.
Research partnership opportunities
- garnering public/private grants
and research dollars will gener-


ate jobs and establish long-term
career opportunities in such areas
as environmental sciences and
aquatic biology. But these signifi-
cant benefits pale in comparison
to the economic one-two-three
punch that FKCC's planned dor-
mitory will visit on our communi-
ty.
Not only will some 200 visiting
college students stabilize FKCC's
long-tern enrollment, but these
students' spending will buttress
cottage industries that cater to
these students; additionally, these
students (studying hospitality,
health care, marine sciences, liber-
al arts, fine arts, etc.) will seam-
lessly integrate into our communi-
ty's workforce both during their
studies and, for many of them,
long after graduation.
FKCC is excited about being a
fundamental part of the diversifi-
cation and stabilization of our
local economy. Check out FKCC
and our Web site, www.fkcc.edu,

munity college.

A dog's life? It's the best by far


EDITOR:
Have you ever heard someone
say, "My wife (or husband) treats
me like a dog" or "I worked like a
dog all day" or "It's a dog-eat-dog
world out there?" I hear it all the
time and it got me to thinking.
First of all, being "treated like
a dog" isn't all that bad. They get
food and water every day and they
can lie around all day and do
nothing if they please. They don't
have to shower and shave every
morning. They don't have to get
up and go to school, go to work or
go to church on Sundays trying to
save their souls. All dogs do go to
doggie heaven, according to my
mom and dad.
They get pampered, perfumed,
preened and petted, and when they
get old and sick, they aren't stuck
in some nursing home to live out
their final days in pain and dis-
comfort.
They get to do things we can't
do or shouldn't do. They get to
ride around in the car with their
head stuck out the window and
their tongue hanging out. They
can relieve themselves in public
wherever they want and a human
being will dutifully pick up after
them hopefully. They also pos-


sess a certain physical ability that
I have marveled at for years, and
can do things in full view of the
public that you or I would certain-
ly be arrested for.
"I worked like a dog all day?"
Most dogs don't have jobs. Some
dogs do work as drug sniffers or
police dogs, so unless you are
going around the airport sniffing
bags and bodies, or chasing down
a crackhead, biting him or her on
the butt, then you most likely are
not working like a dog.
"It's a dog-eat-dog world?" I
personally have never witnessed a
dog eating another dog, yet I have
seen them take a bite out of anoth-
er dog occasionally, but they nor-
mally spit it back out.
So I think it is time to put those
old adages to bed and maybe start
saying things like, "My wife (or
husband) treats me like a cock-
roach" or "I worked like an ant all
day" and finally, "It's a fish-eat-
fish world out there."
Makes sense to me, but then
again so does spending millions of
dollars on a mosquito house while
Marathon operates out of a trailer
park.

Electric Cooperative crew came to the rescue.


the coconuts but a Florida Keys


Utility crew is a cat's best friend


EDITOR:
On a recent Saturday, two dogs tried
to attack our cat. Later in the morning,
we started hearing a moaning sound but
couldn't locate it. Six hours later, we
found Blackie up in the crown of a
coconut palm about 35 feet above the
ground.
A call to the Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative got us in touch with T.J., a
man who answers for everything from
bill payments to powers outages. He
said he would do what he could. A short
time later, the area manager, Craig
Rabito, arrived, followed by a bucket


truck with a two-man crew, Adam
Pierce and Roberto Vibal.
After a quick assurance from Mr.
Rabito that they would be able to help
us, they deployed the bucket truck and
brought our pet down.
These men were so professional and
efficient, they gave the impression that
rescuing pets was their primary busi-
ness. They left with barely enough time
for us to thank them. We are truly
appreciative for their service.

Become a city ambassador


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Key West
Ambassadors Academy, I am contacting
citizens who may be interested in partic-
ipating in the program. The start date of
the 12th Ambassador class will be
Thursday.
The Ambassadors Academy is an
interactive program that focuses on edu-
cating citizens about the city of Key
West. Elected officials, department
directors and other city staff host unique
and informative sessions designed to
give citizens a hands-on experience in
the operations of the city. This is a
chance to learn the ins and outs of city
management and have your suggestions
implemented.
The Ambassadors Academy is a 14-
week course. Classes are held Thursdays
from 1:15 to 4:30 p.m. Each citizen who
completes the free program will receive
a certificate of completion, a shirt and a
pin.
Along with classroom instruction, the
academy has field trips to city, locations


to view the departmental facilities and
activities. In addition to attending the
Weekly class sessions, Ambassadors go
on a "ride-along" of at least two hours
each with the police, parking enforce-
ment and code enforcement, and are
expected to attend at least one Key West
City Commission meeting.
Application forms for the
Ambassadors Academy are on the Key
West city Web site, www.keywestcity
.com. The deadline has passed for the
new session, but feel free to download
one for the next program. Submission of
an application does not guarantee
acceptance.
Participation in the Ambassadors
Academy is an enjoyable and worth-
while experience that allows you to be
better informed about your city govern-
ment. If you have any questions about
the program, send an e-mail to keywest
ambassadoracademy @gmail.com.

Man dies after dinghy fall


He had stopped

Keynoter Staff

The body of a Rhode Island
man last seen motoring to his
boat anchored off Islamorada
was found floating in man-

Lawrence Rathbun, 62, of
Westerly, R.I., may have
drowned after falling from his
10-foot dinghy, according to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
A -fisherman discovered
Rathbun's body around 10
a.m. Saturday along the man-

marker 82, not far from the
Coral Bay Marina, said FWC
Officer Bobby Dube, an
agency spokesman.

He apparently anchored off


Islamorada on Friday as part
of a trip through the Gulf of
Mexico. Rathbun spent sever-
al hours at the Lorelei
Restaurant, and was seen leav-
ing about 7 p.m.
"The investigation is con-

that alcohol was, involved,"
Dube said. "Mr. Rathbun was
not wearing a life jacket."
Cause of death has not been
positively determined but
drowning seems most likely,
Dube said.
The last boating death of
2008 in the Keys occurred
Dec. 31 when a Hialeah man
died after falling off a motor-

Circumstances surrounding
the death of a man found in
Lower Keys waters this week

not been linked to a boating
accident as of Tuesday, Dube

Belotti's mother, Tina, said
Josh is expected to make a full
recovery. He sustained burns on
15 to 20 percent of his body,
including his eyelashes, eye-
brows and part of his hairline,
the morning of Jan. 6.
The 21-year-old dockhand
said he believes the explosion
was caused when a lighter he
was using to crimp wires ignit-
ed fumes from the rental boat's
gas tank. He'd just finished fill-
ing it up with gas.
Belotti said he was working
on changing out the rental
boat's bilge pump at the time of
the explosion.
"Thank God TraumaStar was
here. They had him in the burn
center and treated by 11:30
[a.m.], so that was pretty amaz-
ing," she said. The explosion


occurred at 9:30 a.m. and
Belotti was taken to
Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon before being airlifted
to the Burn Center at Jackson
Memorial Hospital.
"It very well could have been
a whole lot worse. They said
he'll make a full recovery with
occupational therapy," Tina
said.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
spokesman Bobby Dube said
the boat sustained minimal
damage and remains at the
marina. He said "flash" explo-
sions like the one Belotti was
involved in are more common
with inboard engines, where
fumes collect in the engine
compartment.
"It usually happens on boats
with inboard engines, but they
were working on the boat after
they fueled it," Dube said. "It's
unfortunate, but he got lucky."

Why drugs cost so much


Legislature cuts 43%
for Visit Florida

The state Legislature has
cut about $10 million from
the state budget that goes to
support Visit Florida, a non-
profit corporation that pro-
motes Florida as a tourist
destination. The cut amounts
to 43 percent of the total
state funding for Visit
Florida, which now stands at
$23 million.
Harold Wheeler, director
of the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council, serves
on the Governor's Com-
mission on Tourism, which
sits as the board of directors
of Visit Florida.
"To me, it's another reason
why Monroe County needs to
have an additional penny
available to us," he told the
Keynoter on Monday, refer-
ring to the proposed fourth
penny he wants added to the
bed. tax in Monroe County to
go to the TDC for advertising
and promotion of the Keys.
Wheeler says it doesn't
appear likely that Gov.
Charlie Crist will use the line-
item veto to restore funding
to Visit Florida.

Miami tax case
reveals why
U.S. pays more
By JOHN DORSCHNER
The Miami Herald

In a court hearing last week
involving the owners of the bank-
rupt Pharmed medical supply
company in Miami, details were
revealed about how distributors
often make Americans pay far
more for drugs than people in
other countries.
Attorney Dennis G. Kainen,
representing one of the Pharmed
owners, said the case exposed "the
dirty little secrets of American
pharmaceutical companies."
The information came out dur-
ing the sentencing hearing of
Carlos and Jorge de Cespedes,
who had pleaded guilty to tax
evasion and using Pharmed to
defraud Kendall Regional
Medical Center out of $5 million.
During the three-day sentenc-
ing hearing, prosecutors main-
tained that the brothers deserved
extra prison time because the $8
million that they had not paid in
taxes was on money derived from
criminal behavior. Defense attor-
neys said that was nonsense.
What followed was an intense
discussion about the hidden pric-
ing systems in the "gray market"
of pharmaceutical drugs.
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Stephen Schlessinger told Judge
Seitz that in 1999, Roche agreed to
let Pharmed distribute its supplies,
but only outside the United States.
The cost of the drugs was low
because Roche, like most compa-
nies, sells its drugs considerably
cheaper in other countries, either
because those countries have
rigid price controls or because
consumers in poor countries can't
afford U.S. prices. One example:
The highly popular Lipitor, a
Pfizer product which fights cho-
lesterol, costs $392 at Drugstore
.com for 90 40mg tablets in the
United States, but can be had for
$138 in India and $199 in Europe.
The healthcare industry vehe-
mently defends its pricing. A
spokesman for Pharmaceutical
Research and Manufacturers of
America, a trade group, says drug
makers need high prices in the
United States because they
finance almost $60 billion in

annual research that develops
breakthroughs for everything
from cancer to AIDS.
In the Roche case, Pharmed
honored the contract by shipping
the drugs to a warehouse in
Puerto Rico, a major distribution
spot for goods going to the
Caribbean and Latin America.
But the Roche supplies didn't
wind up there. Instead, they were
forwarded to a Pharmed ware-
house in Delaware, where they
were resold to American cus-
tomers at U.S. prices, allowing
Pharmed a huge profit and "sys-
tematically violating its contract"
with Roche, the prosecutor said.
Meanwhile, both prosecutors
and defense attorneys agree, the
brothers were skimming 2.5 per-
cent of all the money received
from Roche and transferring it to
three dummy corporations for
"marketing expenses."
In fact, the companies did no
marketing work, but simply
transferred the money to a
lawyer's trust account. Some of it
ended up with The Astri Group,
the brothers' venture capital com-
pany, and some went to pay for
the de Cespedes' personal living
expenses, including luxury cars,
Schlessinger said.
In all, $30 million from Roche
slipped through these dummy
corporations.
The brothers paid no taxes on
about $22 million of the diverted
money. Their plan unraveled in
2004 after a Texas company that
had bought Roche drugs through
Pharmed told Roche it wanted to
return some of the supplies -
confirming that Pharmed's Roche
products were ending up in the

restaurant in west
Miami, in happier
times. The brothers

but routed them

U.S., pocketing

United States. Roche auditors
visited Pharmed and verified the
diversion. Roche immediately
ended its relationship with
Pharmed.
Roche never filed a civil law-
suit against Pharmed. Kainen
suggested in court that Roche, in
fact, may have avoided airing the
matter in public because it would
reveal that it was "gouging the
American public" by charging
high prices for drugs.
What's more, Kainen said the
brothers had told him that a
Roche national sales manager
knew all about the drug diver-
sion. Roche went along with the
scheme because at the end of
each month or each quarter it
needed to move supplies that
were nearing their expiration
date, and "Pharmed was always
willing to take the product," the
defense attorney said.
It was only after a "corporate
culture change" at Roche that the
company decided not to permit
such contract abuses, the defense
attorney told the judge.
Roche's director of public
affairs, Darien E. Wilson,
responded in an e-mail: "The
defense attorney statements
regarding Roche are absolutely
and categorically false. It is
important to note that Roche
cooperated fully with and sup-
ported the IRS for several years
in its investigation into Pharmed.
We also cooperated with the U.S.
attorney's office, providing com-
plete information."
Pharmed collapsed in bank-
ruptcy in October 2007 after los-
ing its contracts with Roche and
Johnson & Johnson.

Studio on Big Pine Key,
you'll find a clean, airy
space that reflects the
owner's many years of expe-
rience in interior design in
Miami-Dade County.
Before moving to the
Florida Keys, Truesdell
designed interiors of homes
on Fisher Island and Star
Island and interiors of Miami
hotels and corporate head-
quarters. But she's also
helped a lot of ordinary
homeowners.
Truesdell.says she caters
to people at different budget
levels, offering anywhere
from a few hours of consul-
tation to a whole house redo.
In Truesdell's studio,
you'll find furniture, textiles
and accessories for sale.
Truesdell says she buys at
wholesale and marks up just
a bit. A lovely teak cabinet
that was $800 on a recent
visit might retail for $1,800,
for instance.
"They're very high quali-
ty items at reasonable
prices," she says. "I think
things should be beautiful,
yet affordable."

Youth rings in a half century

New 32-year-old pastor helps church mark 50 years
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.comn -.


It's a big week for Kirk of the
Keys Presbyterian Church in
Marathon.
The congregation celebrates
not only its rich half-century his-
tory with a party at Hawks Cay
Resort on Thursday, but also the
present as Alabama native
Dustin Sedlak is officially
installed as the new pastor at 4
p.m. Sunday at the church.
He was actually offered the
job a year and a half ago by then-
Pastor Jim Kennedy when
Sedlak was vacationing in the
Keys, long before his family was
considering a move. Little did he-
know he'd take the job one day.
"He said jokingly, 'I'm retir-
ing, you should have my job,'"
the 32-year-old Sedlak recalled.
At the time, he held an associate
pastor position in the Tampa
area.
When Sedlak's wife Caitlin
was pregnant with their 6-
month-old son Caleb, the family
decided-it was time for a change.
"We were happy up there but
it seemed like a natural time for
a transition with the baby com-
ing," he said. "When it came to
be a possibility we could live
here, I got really excited."
Sedlak will help the church
celebrate its 50-year anniversary
from 6 to 10 p.m. at Hawks Cay,
with dinner, dancing, two prize
auctions and music provided by
Dave Scott.
"Fifty years of anything is
worth celebrating," longtime
parishioner Bill Schneider says.
"It's going to be a lot of people
having a good time and sharing a
lot of brotherhood ... so we're
looking forward to it."
In the beginning, Kirk of the
Keys didn't even have a place to
call its own. The congregation
began meeting in July 1958 and
on Nov. 1 of that year held its
first service at what was then the
Marathon Theater at 6303
Overseas Highway.
In 1960, the congregation
purchased property near 88th
Street on U.S. 1, and the original
building was complete in 1963.
True to its tropical location,
churchgoer Yea Burnett says the
church has always maintained a

laid-back environment.
"Up north 25 years ago, you
went dressed for church. Some
women wore hats," the
Pittsburgh native recalled. "I like
the laid-back business and the
amount of activity that we are
starting to get going again."
Burnett said Sedlak is "full of
ideas" and that she's looking for-
ward to an injection of youth
into the congregation.


"A lot of our members are
older and I think when you have
an older minister and an older
congregation, it's easy not to get
into too many things. A younger
one gets you going," Burnett
said.
The church had been without
a pastor for 18 months before
Sedlak succeeded the retired
Kennedy in November.
"When Jim retired, we went

through a fairly intense process
looking for a new pastor. We
worked through the [Tropical
Presbytery of Florida] and
secured the name of people who
had the qualifications and the
desire to be here," longtime
parishioner Nancy Gauche said.
The Presbytery is a governing
body based in Coral Springs.
By all accounts, Sedlak has a
vision for the future of the
church that parishioners appreci-
ate and look forward to. Lolly
Siemon, who works closely with
Sedlak, said he's well-organized
and detailed.
"We went through this period
of time where we had no direc-
tion and we didn't know who
was coming. [Sedlak's] agenda
for what he wants to accomplish
Sunday mornings is clear and
concise," Siemon said.
Sedlak fits right into what
several parishioners referred to
as a family atmosphere at Kirk
of the Keys. Schneider said his
in-laws snowbirds of more
than 50 years drew him to the
church nine years ago and he's
been coming ever since.
"It's a friendly, warm church
and it's always been that way,"
he said.

party are $50 per person- For

By KEVIN WADLOW

The football program at
Coral Shores will play the
2009 season under a new head
coach, school Athletic
Director Rich Russell said
Tuesday.
Todd Gideon, a three-year
head coach who spent more
than. decade with the
Hurricane football program,
will not have his coaching
contract renewed for next sea-
son, Russell said.
"We have decided to go in


another direction," said
Russell, a former head coach
and player at Coral Shores.
Gideon remains on the
instructional staff at Coral
Shores and will work with
other sports programs, includ-
ing track and field.
"Obviously this is a very
difficult move to make,"
Russell said in a prepared
statement. "I have great admi-
ration and appreciation for
Todd. He has given an awful
lot to our football program for
more than a decade."
Gideon was seriously
injured in an all-terrain-vehi-

A 9-0 win over Westwood
Christian was such that Kaylin
Wyatt scored a pair of Island
Christian goals Friday.
Wyatt is the starting goal-
tender for the Lady Eagles, now
7-4-1.
"It was the second straight
game where we got a chance to
move people around into differ-
ent positions," said Eagle coach
Sheryl Yost.
Wyatt got in the scoring book
when she moved to the offensive
end, while Eagle regulars Jen
Subic and Cailin Reckwerdt
spent some time in the net.
Reckwerdt also scored a pair
of goals and kept the shutout in


tact. Subic scored a solo goal.
Striker Kate DuPre scored two
goals, with Andrea Scott and
Abbey Lindhold each scoring
once.
The Eagles kept their push to
sweep the 2009 regular-season
schedule headed into Tuesday's
meeting with Miami Christian
(results pending at press time).
Miami Christian won the sea-
son's first meeting, 2-0, but that
was nearly two months ago, Yost
said. "We were missing some
people, and the girls are playing
much better."
Friday's trip to Florida Bible

The Lady Eagles travel to

Saturday night, put on an

Valdez, who scored 29
points, broke the Conch

regular season.
Coral Shores has won four
games combined over the past
two regular seasons.
The next head coach will
not be named until after a
search process. Russell said
"the position [will] be adver-
tised for at least two weeks
before an interview and selec-
tion process takes place."
School administrators pre-
fer "someone with head coach-
ing experience at high school
level or above," the athletic
director said.
"Being the head football
coach is one of the most
important positions in our
school," Russell said.
"Football sets the tone for ath-
letics, but in a larger sense sets


the tone for the entire school
year.... We want to have a hand
in developing great young
men. We want our programs to
instill and reinforce discipline,
self-esteem, commitment, sac-
rifice, goal-setting, competi-
tive skills and strong values.
When those things are in
place, winning takes care of
itself."
After spending two years
playing outside the state dis-
trict system during a rebuild-
ing process, the Hurricanes
plan to rejoin a district this
fall, Russell said. The Florida
High School Athletic
Association "has granted the
request," he said.
District brackets for the
2009 season are expected to be
released this week.
Gideon couldn't be reached
for comment.

Fins drop two


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


One errant quarter in each of
their games this weekend led to
two losses for the Marathon
High School girls basketball
team.
The girls were outscored by
eight points in the second quarter
against Westminster Christian
School Friday, and by eight in
the third Saturday against
Westwood Christian School.
The Dolphins lost 47-33 to
Westminster and 24-18 to
Westwood. The team fell to 2-6.
As has been the case in most
games so far, ball control
plagued the Dolphins over the
weekend. Their 46 turnovers
Friday led to repeated fast break
baskets for Westminster.
"They played well, just too
many turnovers," coach Amanda
Hirschauer said, adding
Westminster rarely scored out of


its offensive set.
With the game tied 6-6 after
one quarter, Westminster pulled
away for an 18-10 halftime lead
and the Dolphins couldn't close
the gap.
Senior point guard Marquita
White scored 16 points to lead
the Dolphins, while fellow sen-
iors Latrice Jackson and Vanessa
Sardina chipped in with 10 and
six points respectively.
On Saturday, the Dolphins
played stellar defense again, but
struggled to make shots on the
offensive end.
Marathon held Westwood to
just five first half points, but led
by just one at the break, 6-5. But
then a Warriors point guard
scored 10 points in the third
quarter as the Dolphins trailed
17-10.
A defensive change in the
fourth slowed her down, but the
Dolphins were unable to close
the gap in the final frame.

place finishers were Tim
Klein and Ted Christie of
Islamorada aboard Capt. Mel
Walker's Gotcha.
The tournament is an all-
release team event using 8
kg tippet supplied by the
tournament. Each team is
allowed two anglers who
may cast, hook and fight the
fish and anyone on board
can tease the fish with live or
dead hookless teasers, mak-
ing the "bait and switch."
A release is accomplished
when the connection of fly
line to leader is brought into
the tip top of the fly rod. If
that occurs in less than 60
seconds, 10 points are earned.
If the fish is more difficult
and takes more than 60 sec-
onds, then 50 points' are
earned. If the fish is billed
and the fly retrieved, the
catch counts for 150 points.
Seventeen teams were
brought todtlier f6inAthe
U.S. and Canada for tld
event. Overall, eight hobkups
were reported and three fish
were caught during a lull of
what has otherwise been a
red-hot sailfish season.
Over the nine years of the
tournament's existence,
Scoble won the tournament
three times and placed sec- .
nhd tiiice. -"'- "


'Tails dominating


Grouper, muttons
and kingfish also
thick out there

Well, it looks like winter con-
ditions are over for now. We had
those couple of weeks of cool
weather and since then, it is back
in the 70- to 80-degree pattern.
Heck, my tan never even faded.
For those visiting from just
about anywhere north of the state
line, it has to be just like the
brochures advertise. And with
this nice weather, we really can't
complain about the winds, now
can we?
The good weather has brought
great yellowtail fishing they
are not only numerous but also
big. But yellowtail isn't the only
species that has been running
rampant.
Mutton snapper have made a
huge come back from prior years'
numbers, at least according to the
catch reports I have seen. One of
the most promising aspects of
mutton fishing I've noticed has
been the number of smaller fish
that have been around.
I know that when you catch a
nice-size mutton, say 12 to 15
inches, you are disappointed you
can't keep them because they are
still under the 16-inch minimum.
But the fact of the matter is, we
have been catching these just
undersized fish which were
not as prevalent just a few years
ago. This bodes well for the very
near future. If we release them
properly without much injury,
they will be big enough to keep in
a very short time.
The same can be said for the
grouper fishery. I hear so many
anglers talk about the grouper
they caught that was just under
the limit. They are what they are,
but you know what? In a short
time, those fish will be legal size
and you, too, will have more than
stories to tell. In fact, you will be
able to,do a show and tell.
However, in recent weeks, I
have also heard of quite a few
good-sized grouper coming in on
many anglers' boats. The action
along the deep edge of the reef
has been good for fish that you
would not even have to think
about measuring.
The reverse problem has been
common in Florida Bay with both
trout and redfish. Me and quite a


Dick Jamell of Big Pine Key and Marshalltown, Iowa, landed
this nice grouper off the Lower Keys and then 10 minutes
later, his wife Connie Jo bested him with a larger one.


Dave Navarro


few other
anglers I've
talked with
have had
trouble
finding
either of
those
species
sm a 1
enough to
be able to
keep.
Both
have a slot
of sizes that


regulate them, meaning they have
to be both over and under a cer-
taini size. With all of this warm
weather, an influx of both has
been noticeable in the outer bay
waters in the tall grass.
Finding a trout that would fit
under the maximum size was
impossible just a few days ago
where more than 40 being caught.
It was fun to catch such big trout
but hard to explain to the anglers
that they were too big to keep.
O the same trip, of the five
redfish caught, none were small
enough. (Isn't it amazing how a
fisherman can always find some-
thing to complain about?)
What we are starting to see is
a big influx of cobia and big king-
fish. I have had reports from
some fishermen about the kings
being piled up in waters along the
reef line. For some of the yellow-
tail anglers, there have so many, it
has been a problem to get a fish
past them, particularly well west
of Sombrero Light. They can be
more aggressive toward a hooked
yellowtail than a barracuda and


usually there are. a great deal
more of them in the area.
Mackerel are also thick, both
in the bay as well as on the ocean-
side of the islands. And cobia
have been increasing in frequen-
cy bayside the past couple of
weeks, with some well over 50
pounds being taken just this past
week.
Other good areas have been
the reef and the edge of the reef
offering a mixed variety of
species, and areas of Hawk
Channel on the drift, the banks of
the bay and the bridge channels.
The most consistent have beeii
the bridge channels.
Fishing these channels to their
fullest potential is something that
is not as simple as it may look.
Knowing where and when to fish
a particular spot is something that
comes with time. And it's impor-
tant because these channels can
save you on a slow day elsewhere,
and provide you a good place to
fish on those bad-weather days.
All of these areas require a dif-
ferent type of rigging to fish them
correctly. To learn more about
when and where to head out for
each species, what to take and
what to expect, we will hold a free
fishing seminar this Sunday from
6 to 8 p.m. at our Marine Educa-
tional Center at 3740 Overseas
