Nine lose jobs,
savings expected
to be $1,25 million
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Engine-
ering Department will cease to
exist Feb. 13.
And that means up to nine of
the division's 22 employees -
including the director, County
Engineer Dave Koppel will


be let go.
"Frankly, the capital
improvement plan we have
doesn't warrant having a whole
division for engineering,"
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi told the Keynoter
Friday. "We just don't have that
much going, so we're adjusting
to the times and where we are at
this point in our capital
improvement projects."

Orbitz, Expedia,
others accused
of bilking county
By LARRY KAHN
Ikahn@keynoter.com

Monroe County has sued pop-
ular travel Web sites Expedia,
Orbitz and others claiming they
are bilking the county out of
tourist taxes.
Monday, the county sued in
U.S. District Court in Miami. It
accuses the sites of paying the
county's 3 percent lodging tax
based on the wholesale room
rates they obtain for rooms, but
collecting the tax from travelers
based on higher retail rates.
The Web sites then pocket the


difference, according to the suit,
which terms the practice as "tax
evasion" and "unjust enrichment."
"Failure to convey these taxes
to the county ... has generated a
debt owed by the defendants to
the county," the suit says.
How much money is at stake
isn't clear. Miami attorney. Tod
Aronovitz, who represents the
county, said a jury would have to
decide not only if the booking
companies are guilty, but if they
are, how long the practice has
been going on and what they owe.
The. Monroe County Tourist
Development Council took in
$14,943,679 in bed taxes in fiscal
year 2007-08, says TDC Director

'Moments you always remember'


INAUGURATION / From I

history the swearing-in of
America's first black president
- on a television screen simply
won't do.
"When people years from
now talk about where they
were when President Obama
was inaugurated," said
Plantation Key School teacher
Michele Zofchak, "our kids
will be able to say, 'We were
there.'"
A group of 72 people -
seventh- and eighth-grade stu-
dents, teachers and parents
from Plantation Key School -
leaves Sunday for Washington
as part of an inauguration trip
planned since April.
"We'll get to see history in
the making," said eighth-grad-
er Kaitlyn Sebben. "We'll do a
bunch of other stuff and see
different things while we're
there."
Coleen Fitzsimmons, who
works in biology and public
outreach for the Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District, is
leaving over the weekend to
attend the inauguration.
"There's all this excitement
around it," she said. "I think he
has a big heart and mind. I
think he has an ability to come
across party lines. I don't think
he's the kind of person that can
be bought, either,"
Fitzsimmons said.
Monroe County Com-
missioner Heather Carruthers
is also attending.
"Because I was elected on
the same day as Mr. Obama,
I'm especially excited to par-
ticipate and be in our nation's
capitol for this ringing, glori-
ous affirmation of our democ-
racy," she said via e-mail. "It
really is something extraordi-
nary, this peaceful transition of
power that we experience
every four or eight years, and
this year's is especially his-
toric. I hope I'll be able some
day to attend the inauguration
of the first female president,
too."
Mothner is leaving
Saturday for Washington with
his 16-year-old daughter
Samantha, a sophomore at
Marathon High School.
Former Marathon City
Councilman Jeff Pinkus is also
going and will meet his son,
Nathan, a senior at
* Oeoise'tgwn Univers-it.v., t,


Washington.
And it
appears
Nathan is a
political
prognostica-
tor of sorts.
After
watching
AZIZ Obama deliv-
er the
keynote address at the 2004
Democratic National
Convention in Boston, Nathan
called his father and said he
just watched the winner of the
2008 presidential election
speak. Turns out he was right;
now the two will yvatch 'the
charismatic
f o r m e r
SIllinois sena-
-' tor be sworn


I heading tip
-, 'i- there because
S. it's one of the
MOTHNER most exciting
times in our
country's history," Pinkus
said. "I don't normally relish
voluntarily putting myself into
big crowds, but we're making
an exception because of the
historical significance."
The Plantation Key School
contingent will watch the
Obama ceremony on a
Jumbotron screen in an event
at the Smithsonian, followed
by a special celebration with
other traveling students.
"It's a remarkable educa-
tional opportunity," Zofchak
said.
"We know the key is to be
flexible and stay warm," fel-
low teacher Pam Brown
laughed.
"It will be exciting to see
President Obama inaugurat-
ed," said eighth-grader Azizur
Aziz, making his first trip to
Washington. "I've been to
other countries, but never to
any state outside of Florida."
Said seventh-grader Jake
Niedbalski, "I worked really
hard to raise money for the
trip. Inaugurations don't hap-
pen every very often."
Will Stone, a seventh-grad-
er, was worried a broken arm
suffered last week in basket-
ball practice would keep him
home.
He's going, cast and all.
"I've never seen an inaugura-
tion before," Stone said.
:':,-An.l -'M orkill .t wil'l be 'in,,


S Washington
.- 'on business,
but also plans
Q to attend the
i- inauguration.
S "I'm tak-
ing advan-
tage of being
in D.C.,"
FITZSIMMONS Morkill said.
"What a great
opportunity because I support-
ed Obama in the election.
Morkill likes Obama
"because of his ideals, his call
for change, because he's not
necessarily, in my opinion, an,
extreme left-wing Democrat."
SMorkill also. hopes Obama
takes a strong
stance on
environmen-
Stal issues and
"rebuild
some of the
S.i conservation
laws that
have been
ZOFCHACK gutted by the
previous
administration."
Brown started organizing
the Plantation Key School visit
through a travel affiliate of the
Smithsonian Institution long
before Obama was even elect-
ed.
"We didn't know who was
going to be inaugurated,"
-Brown said. "I thought we'd
get about a half-dozen kids.
Now, we're taking two sepa-
rate groups."
"We at PKS like to go
places but this is by far our
biggest field trip ever," she
said.
Mothner, 47, recalled the
momentous occasions that
were the backdrop of his
youth: The Vietnam War, the
assassinations of Bobby
Kennedy and Martin Luther
King. He even recalled sitting
atop his father's shoulders as a
9-year-old boy during an anti-
war rally in Washington, D.C.,
in 1969.
"There are things in life you
do and time proceeds, but
there are moments you always
remember," he said. "On .the
day after Martin Luther King
Day, I'm going to watch the
first black president be inaugu-
rated."

Staff writers Sean Kinney,
Ryan McCarthy and Kevin
Wadlow compiled this report.

Celebrating our past


Tuesday's presidential inaugu-
ration of Barack Obama is historic
on many levels, and this edition of
the Keynoter was historic, too -
it was the first-ever Keynoter
printed; back on Feb. 19, 1953.
Note what's on the cover a
photo of Dwight Eisenhower
sampling a piece of lobster in
Marathon before he was elected
president. A story in that inaugu-
ral edition said the Marathon
Chamber of Commerce sent him
a letter that week, inviting him to
return.
Also note the top headline:
"Hoover Fishing on the Keys."
That was former President
Herbert Hoover. He was in the
Keys for two weeks; the story
says he weit fishing with William
Pinder of Islamorada and caught
an 8-pourid bonefish.
And on Page 3 in that
Keynoter, a story says "Vice
President Richard Nixon and a
party stopped in Marathon last
month on a trip through the
Florida Keys." Eisenhower had
apparently told Nixon Marathon
was a good place to visit.

Past lawsuits failed


BED TAX / From I

Harold Wheeler. He estimates the
losses could be "a considerable
amount."
But he also says he's not opti-
mistic Monroe County will be
able to make its case alone.
"A number of entities have
filed suit, however, the online
travel companies have won every
single one of them," he said,
specifically citing cases filed in
California and North Carolina.
"It seems to me if every coun-
ty and state approaches this on
their own basis, these online
agencies are going to pick them
off one at a time," Wheeler said.
"It would seem to me it would be
better to do it as a group."
That's what Aronovitz wants..
In the lawsuit, he asks U.S.
District Court Judge Michael
Moore to certify the lawsuit as a
class action to include all Florida
counties that charge a bed tax.
"The class is so numerous that
joinder of members is impracti-
cable, and the members of the
class will be easily ascertained
through defendants' records with
additional discovery," the suit
says.
Wheeler says the TDC is
looking at putting a booking sys-
tem on the TDC Web site that
would direct travelers to the spe-
cific properties they're interested
in. That would mean travelers
would have no need to book


through Orbitz and other third-
party booking companies.
This TDC booking system,
called the Jack Rabbit, "is really
not a third-party booking sys-
tem," he says.
"When the user goes online to
book, they would determine
which district they want to go to,
then they would look into what
kind of property they want -
guest house, motel then they
would type in the kind of ameni-
ties they want. Then it would
send them directly to the proper-
ties it would bypass them [the
online booking companies]."
Wheeler says he's measuring
interest in such a venture among
Keys lodgings and should have
more information next week.
Online travel industry repre-
sentatives have dismissed law-
suits similar to the one filed
Monday as misrepresenting the
sites' business models. The sites
say the mark-up on their rooms
- usually about 20 percent from
the wholesale rate amounts to
a service fee that should be
exempt from lodging taxes.

Key West power
outage possible

Keys Energy Services, the
Lower Keys electric company,
plans to perform maintenance on
its U.S. 1 substation from 12:01
to 7 a.m. Jan. 23, meaning an
interruption in service is possi-
ble but not planned.
To accommodate the planned
maintenance work, the city of
Key West will be disconnected
from the transmission line and
powered by local generation at
Keys Energy's Stock Island gen-
erating facility. All other Keys
Energy customers will remain
connected to the transmission
line.
Customers can expect addi-
.tional planned, work during the
winter as various systemwide


upgrades are performed.

Two cruise ships
redirected to Keys

Key West's ports are benefit-
ing again from inclement weath-
er, city officials say.
On Saturday, the cruise ship
Norwegian Pearl is expected to
pull into Pier B. The 2,400-pas-
senger vessel is coming from
Cozumel and has been rerouted
because of weather. It will be
docked from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
A second cruise ship,_the
Silver Seas, will also make a
previously unscheduled stop in
Key West on Wednesday. This
vessel, which carries a little over
300 passengers, will dock at
Mallory Square at 9 a.m. and
pull out at 5 p.m.

The Freeman
Justice Center in
Key West was finally
completed this year
after some 7 o ."
15 years of .
construction. It cost
$17 million. Now

projects are done,

longer needed,

Adm inistrator ,I r ---. .'--" ~ ,
Roman Gastesi

Employees given 30 days


ENGINEERING / From 1

With the economy in reces-
sion and longstanding budget
constraints, Gastesi said the
county basically has no money to
move forward with new capital
projects.
The Murray E. Nelson
Government and Cultural Center
in Key Largo, the Monroe
County Medical Examiner's
Office on Crawl Key, the Big
Pine Key Park and the Freeman
Justice Center in Key West have
all been completed in the past
year.
The total cost for the four
projects is roughly $38 million.
"They're finished now. We
just don't have work," Gastesi
said.
Gastesi said in a prepared
statement Friday that eliminating
the department "will increase
efficiency, streamline decision
making and reduce costs."
He said the move will repre-
sent a pro-rated savings of
$450,000 for the current fiscal
year and $800,000 in fiscal year
2010.
Employees have been given
30 days notice and will be paid
for accrued vacation and sick
time.
"We're through with a lot of
the major projects and we don't
have the money to do the projects
on hand. It was a tough decision,
but it had to be made," County
Commissioner Kim Wigington
said.


The county's operating budget
for this year is $85.28 million.
That represents a 7.78 percent
increase in property taxes over
the rollback rate from last year.
The rollback rate is the tax rate
levied this year to raise the same
amount of revenue as last fiscal
year.
Mayor George Neugent point-
ed out that the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority, the organi-
zation tapped by the county to
design and install central sewers
in most of unincorporated
Monroe, has an engineering
department of its own. With no
other major projects planned, he
said "there was no need to dupli-
cate that."
"These are some of the things
we're going to have to address to
deal with the cutbacks and
restrictions placed on us as far as
generating ad valorem revenues.
It's sad that's the case, but Roman
is making the corrective meas-
ures he feels are necessary,"
Neugent said.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro called the move "a good
business decision" that will help
the county escape its budget
woes.
"We don't' have enough capi-
tal projects going on. In the future
if there is something coming up,
we can use outside consultants,"
he said.
Gastesi said the functions of
the Engineering Division will be

DOT sign sweep

is DOT run amok

So here's a good idea for helping our ailing Keys businesses:
Ban all roadside signs, including pennants, flags, sandwich
board signs and related eye-catchers.
And let's do an enforcement sweep in January just in time
to crimp sales and confuse first-time visitors, who may be unfa-
miliar with the Keys and locations of our small mom and pop
stores.
Oh, and let's schedule code enforcement hearings and begin
levying fines for non-compliance if those offending signs
aren't quickly removed.
The above, hopefully, you've figured out is satiric. The
Florida Department of Transportation's "holiday gift" to Keys
businesses was not really helpful, nor will it help ailing busi-
nesses survive an already slow economy.
The Florida Department of Transportation has battled indi-
vidual storeowners before, but hardly ever on such a wide
scale.
Yes, U;S. 1 is a federal highway that connects us to the main-
land. But it also functions as our main street, the focus for most
retail centers until you get to Key West, where commerce is
located on either county or city streets not a federal highway.
On the mainland, signs are generally governed by city ordi-
nances, more or less restrictive depending on how the commu-
nity feels about the look of their commercial "downtown."
Anyone who.'s traveled Miracle Mile in Coral Gables will
readily concede it looks far different than Calle Ocho in the
heart of Miami's Little Havana.
Some prefer the Gables, others prefer Calle Ocho. But the
debate is held locally, with give and take from property own-
ers, nearby residents, business owners and city officials'. Here
in the Keys, we don't have that luxury of local control.
The state's highway department rules our prime commercial
corridor and they enforce state rules without fear of retaliation
at the polls or pressure from disgruntled business leaders, who
can and will pack a public hearing or city council meeting.
If you don't believe that, just ask the state transportation folks
who've dealt with the organized opposition in North Key
Largo over paving a road shoulder there. That quickly grew to
outcries of a secret fifth lane, and angry letters denouncing the
DOT.
Maybe a letter-writing campaign won't deter the DOT over
its latest sign blitz, but it sure would help some small shop-
keepers to hear their neighbors come to their support.
Send your letters to state Rep. Ron Saunders, P.O. Box 699,
Tavernier, FL 33070-0699.

High Keys hotel costs drive tourists away


EDITOR:
I picked up a copy of Keynoter when I was in
Key West a few weeks ago. We are both retired
Florida natives (honest-to-God born and raised
there) who have made many trips to the Keys
over the past four decades.
For the past 10 years, we haven't been able to
stay too long because of the way high lodging
prices, which are high in the whole hotel chain
we used but highest in Key West. Unfortunately,
we can no longer afford to come very often or
stay very long, now just kind of drive-by visits.
Your article on Page 12 says it all. Duval
Street rooms were $309 to $398 a night. Why not
just make them a thousand a night and tell
Tourist Development Council Director Harold
Wheeler to go for a hundred-dollar-a-night head


tax? We can't afford them and there are nicer
places for a lot less money.
We recently went on a five-night Carnival
cruise for $270 each, including tax and port fees.
That included transportation, unlimited food avail-
able 24 hours a day and a room that was cleaned
and made up twice each day. The $540 we paid
for the cruise wouldn't even get us a room at an
average place in Key West for two nights.
In December, we flew to San Juan and rented
a condo on the beach at Isla Verde for nine
nights. Total cost for airfare and nine condo
nights was $1,170, or $130 a night.
Our friends feel the same way we do. We just
can't afford Key West or the Keys any more.

Exceeding height limit would have set bad precedent


EDITOR:
Regarding the granting of a height vari-
ance to a proposed Marathon hotel, at face
value the argument might be made that it is
an acceptable deviation, and certainly the
development is welcomed except that
exceeding the height limit is not about a par-
ticular project. It's a subject proven to be of
great importance to the preponderance of the
Keys citizens, ensuring that ordinances lim-
iting height do not erode over time.
One good adage deserves another and for
those labeling opposition to this variance as
the proverbial looking the gift horse in the
mouth, I offer the following: Repeating the
same behavior and expecting different
results is the definition of insanity.
In the not-too-distant past, our Keys plan-
ning departments were inundated with devel-
opers promising answers to our affordable
housing crisis in return for major changes in
our land development regulations. At the
time, the perceived financial benefit seemed
sufficient to justify lowering our standards
of community redevelopment. Now, rather


Pair brightens day
by returning wallet
EDITOR:
On Jan. 6, my husband Chuck lost his
wallet on the bike path between the
Tavernier Creek Bridge and San Pedro
Catholic Church. He retraced his steps as
soon as he realized it was missing but could
not find it. However, someone else did..
A woman (whose name we do not know)
found it and turned it over to Deputy Larry
O'Neil, who was by the school crossing. We
were extremely relieved to get Deputy's
O'Neil's phone call and to then retrieve the
wallet. These two people were considerate
and honest. They went out of their way to do
something for someone they did not know.
We thank them both very much.

than affordable housing, much of what we
can demonstrate for compromise is a devas-
tating wake of razed trailer parks, boarded-
up motels and unfinished developments.
Fast forward and in the face of a
depressed market, some would advocate that
we should just be grateful someone wants to
contribute to our economy and realize that
sacrificing the height restriction is well
worth the promised profit. Nevertheless, this
project should come and go but the prece-
dent set would endure a new height stan-
dard of 46-feet.
When will we learn that compromise
today bought with a promise for tomorrow
rarely yields the intended result? The citi-
zens of these Islands have drawn a line in
the sand (or in the sky, as it were). I would
ask that our officials stand firm in protecting
the interests of those-they were elected to
serve.

withdrew the request for the variance to the 37-
foot height limit for the Hampton Inn proposed
for development by Peter Rosasco.

Library's success hinges on many people


EDITOR:
I want to express my appreciation and
give thanks to the volunteers who put in long
hours during 2008 and who helped us in our
hours of need.
To Jane M., Jack, Betsy, Edie, Carol,
Jane, Brad and other members of the Friends
of the Marathon Library for their support and
donations that helped to purchase many
needed books, tapes, DVDs and supplies,
which are now a part of our collection.
To the entire community, which sup-
ported the library throughout the year with
generous donations.
To the Marathon High School Nike
Club for its generous donation (thank you
Sara Fabian and helpers).
To Bev Gottschalk ofthe National
Alliance for the Mentally Ill for her generous
donation of books and DVDs.
To our summer youth volunteers: Brian


Mays, Kelly Grinter, Barbara, the Care
Puppet Show performers and Mark Giffen,
who did a great job coordinating the pro-
gram.
To the patrons and teachers who made
a special point of bringing the children to the
library.
To Ali Adams and her helpers, who
helped make the decorations for the fabulous
Christmas tree.
And to the staff, which has been hard
pressed to perform all of its added responsi-
bilities, but which has come up shining
bright. And to the press for publishing this
and all the other things we have submitted
throughout the year.
I thank everyone and hope that 2009 will
be a better year, and that we may continue to
serve you.

Takings case will cost the county plenty


EDITOR:
I heard Monroe County Mayor George
Neugent on "The Morning Magazine"
radio show pounding his chest about
challenging the recent reversal of county
buddy Judge David Audlin's ruling on
barring lawsuits over land-takings cases
due to the expiration of the four-year
statute of limitations.
I could be wrong but I don't believe
all the pounding in the world will get
this opinion in front of the Florida
Supreme Court. I have been following
this case for almost a decade now and if
anyone made this case go beyond the
four-year statute of limitations, it would
be the county.
The Collins case has already con-
sumed millions of our much-needed tax
dollars and to continue this case any
longer would gulp up probably another


$3 million to $4 million, and that would
not include the plaintiffs' lawyers.
The ramifications of pursuing these
frivolous lawsuits are something that not
even the biggest tree hugger in this
county could afford. It's my guess when
these lawsuits start to get into the pock-
ets of our fine citizens here, and they
will, the words "tree hugger" and
"Neugent" will be reclassified as new
four-letter words and just maybe the
pendulum of sanity will move just a lit-
tle farther to the right. God, I hope so.
Salvador Gutierrez Jr.

Editor's note: The Third District
.Court of Appeal overturned Audlin's rul-
ing that the statute of limitations had
expired to file lawsuits over alleged land
takings.


Foundation shows community commitment


EDITOR:
Heron-Peacock Supported Living,
which provides community residential
mental health programs in the Keys,
would like to thank and express its deep
appreciation to Arline Wallace and
Colleen Repetto and the Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation
for its generous donation to our residents
for holiday activities and items.
These included Christmas dinner,
phone cards, trees and decorations, and
gift cards for all 44 clients of our organ-
ization. We had truly happy holidays at
Heron-Peacock because of their kind
help.
Since 2003, the Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Charitable Foundation in
Marathon has assisted Heron-Peacock
Supported Living by donating funds to
support client needs, activities, gift and
phone cards, and meals for the holiday
season. Since it started its giving cam-


paign in April 2002, the foundation has
raised more than $500,000 through the
generosity and kindness of the Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Real Estate agents, asso-
ciates, business partners and affiliates.
The funds are mainly used for helping
residents of the Keys whose critical
needs are not being met through other
resources. Recipients include individu-
als, families, and agencies and organiza-_
tions [who receive] 100 percent of the
contributions made to the foundation.
We also congratulate the Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation
for being a recent recipient of an
Appreciation Award from the
Southernmost Homeless Assistance
League as a business doing philanthropic
works and assisting in reducing home-
lessness in the Keys community.

Don't overlook our


own Keys treasures


My brother was in his 50s
before he ever went up to the
top of the St. Louis Arch to
see what he could see..
My brother was born and
raised just a few miles from
the Arch, which is a top draw
for visitors to St. Louis and
too often ignored by locals. I
share that because it speaks to
a common problem we all face
- not seeing the-many attrac-
tions in our own backyard.
I confess to falling
into the same tunnel
vision living here in
the Keys, where tens
of thousands of
tourists come every
year to enjoy the
many beauties and
bounties we offer.
This past
Thanksgiving, a sur-
prise visit by my son
and daughter-in-law
took me to the Dry Wayne I
Tortugas aboard the Keynotel
Yankee Freedom.
I'm embarrassed to
say it was my first trip there.
Wow.
It's hard to describe the color
and crystalline waters that sur-
round Fort Jefferson to anyone
who's never seen the Keys.
Where I grew up in the
Midwest, streams mostly ran
brown, lakes filled with silt
and a big fish caught at our
favorite state park fishing hole
weighed in about 8 pounds.
You can tell I've had my
eyes opened since settling in
the Keys.
To paraphrase one of my
neighbors whose passion is
fishing, what anglers up north
call keepers are used for bait
down here.
All this is by way of recom-
mending you pick up a copy of

You don't need the excuse of

To streamline things, he com-
bined Geotis' job with that of
City of Marathon Marina
Manager Richard Tanner and
eliminated Geotis' position.


As for Storm, Burnett said he
needs to be replaced because he
wants the Code Compliance
Department "to use common
sense when dealing with the
city's residents and in the neigh-
borhoods in which the residents
live and the code compliance
officers serve."
Cynthia McPherson was
named interim director of Code
Compliance.


Marathon Ports Manager C.J.
Geotis, who formerly served as
deputy city manager, and Darla
Williams, a city biologist, were
let go late Thursday by City
Manager Clyde Burnett.
Williams was one of two biol-
ogists on staff, which isn't need-
ed because Planning Director
George Garrett "also is qualified
to serve as a biologist."
"With the economy, it's
slowed down and there wasn't a
whole lot to do," Burnett said of
Williams, "and there wasn't
enough work to justify three biol-
ogists in one department."
Burnett also let Code
Enforcement Director Michael
Storm go and it's unclear whether
that position will be filled.
Geotis was earning $84,000
per year, with another $29,128 in
benefits. Williams earned
$48,555, plus $21,590 in bene-
fits, while Storm earned $68,690

city will be nearly $278,000.

me. Since I became a full-time
resident, I became very involved
in Key Colony Beach politics."
Three of the five commission
seats are up for election. Running
along with Schmidt are incum-
bents Mayor Ron Sutton, Vice
Mayor Rusty ; Stevens and
Commissioner Jeff Vorick.
In Key Colony, voting is at
large, so the top three vote-getters
among those four will be elected
to two-year terms on the five-
member City Commission.
Vorick is closing out his fourth
term, Sutton his second and
Stevens his first.
Key Colony is the second
smallest city in the Keys. There
are fewer than 900 full-time resi-
dents and in the wintertime, resi-
dency peaks at around 3,800.
And with the city pretty much
built out and a sewer system
already in place, there are few
issues to get the masses roiled
like in the rest of the county.
But Schmidt says some things
do need to be watched. She says
she attends every City
Commission meeting and then
sends out to about 1,000 people
electronic wrap-ups of what the
commissioners did.
"I might say in my e-mail,
Why are we.doing this? I'll call
Tallahassee or the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority and find out
why something was done."
She cites specifically early talk
of Marathon perhaps sharing Key
Colony's sewer plant as part of
Marathon's central sewer system.
"The Key Colony Beach plant
couldn't handle it," she said, and
the idea died.

Hotel height variance is cut down


The request
is withdrawn
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Sensing a groundswell of
opposition to a height-limit vari-
ance granted him by the
Marathon Planning Commission
last month, developer Peter
Rosasco decided it was best to
simply withdraw the request.
"I decided that it wasn't neces-
sary," Rosasco told the Keynoter,
declining to comment further.
With height limits no longer
an issue, the Marathon City
Council on Tuesday granted
Rosasco, a city resident and the
city's finance director, a condi-
tional use and development
agreement.
He plans to build an 80-room
Hampton Inn on his 4.81-acre lot
in Old Town near mile marker 48.


Speaking at the City Council
meeting Tuesday,. Rosasco said
the Keys are moving away from
the "adult playground" image and
toward being a family destina-
tion. That's why he moved to
Marathon, he said.
"Everybody is struggling; this
is a tough time," Rosasco said, cit-
ing a nationwide recession. "We
need to build modem affordable
accommodations so families can
come and enjoy our community."
On Dec. 15, the Planning
Commission granted Rosasco an
across-the-board 9-foot, 3-inch
height limit variance, a compro-
mise equal to what Planning
Director George Garrett is able to
grant on his own without com-
mission approval.
Rosasco's development team
requested nine variances to the
city's 37-foot height limit -
including a lobby to be built more


than 57 feet tall and a retail tower
that would stand nearly 59 feet
tall.
But even Rosasco admitted it
was unlikely those variances
would be requested. None of
them were for habitable spaces,
however, only "architectural fea-
tures" he said are inherent in the
Hampton Inn design.
Following the Planning
Commission's approval of the
variance, Planning Commissioner
Larry Shaffer who cast the lone
dissenting vote on the variance -
decided to formally appeal his
own board's decision. He sought a
waiver of the $2,100 fee the city
requires as a deposit to handle the
appeal.
But as of last week, Sherry
Popham, an Old Town business
owner and former Monroe
County planning commissioner,
had nearly secured enough dona-
tions to finance the appeal.
Popham had sent out a mass e-


mail asking for donations up to
$100, and at last count had 27 res-
identslined up.
At Tuesday's council meeting,
Rosasco's attorney, John Wolfe,
told the City Council of
Rosasco's decision to withdraw
the variance request before the
issue had a chance to be debated.
Many residents had turned out to
chime in.
"There's been controversy
with respect to the height limit.
For those reasons, the developer
agrees to withdrawal the variance
application," Wolfe said-.
While a number of residents
spoke against the height variance,
a number of citizens also spoke in
favor of the development itself -
including Shaffer.
"We have a problem with tran-
sient units a lot of them are
offline. You have a guy who's
going to take the risk to benefit
all the residents of Marathon," he
said.


Council members Ginger
Snead and Pete Worthington
voiced concern with the five-year
period Rosasco has to obtain cer-
tificates of occupancy for the
hotel and restaurant. Rosasco
assured the council he'll move
forward as soon as possible.
"My plan is to begin construc-
tion next summer and have heads
in beds during the 2010 season.
Trying to get this project financed
in today's environment is a
Herculean effort," he said.
Meanwhile, the council
addressed many residents' con-
cerns with the $2,100 deposit to
file an appeal of Planning
Commission decisions.
Mayor Mike Cinque said the
city plans to do away with the
cost recovery rates in favor of a
flat fee schedule proposed by
City Manager Clyde Bumett.
Bumett expects to present a
report to the council at its Jan. 27
meeting.

Sean Reyngoudt, a 22-year-
old kiteboarder from
Summerland Key, said he wants
to raise ocean awareness because
he has seen a "tremendous dif-
ference" in fish numbers and
water clarity growing up in the
Keys.
"It's shocking how much
trash there is on the ocean
coast," Reyngoudt said. "You go
to Smathers [Beach in Key West]
and you can't swim there some
days. It's disgusting."
Phil Kline, a senior ocean

boarder Alex Moore of St.
Petersburg, who wanted the ride
to be "bigger and not about our-
selves."

Planning Board

OKs redevelopment


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West Planning
Board on Thursday approved a
development agreement with
Spottswood Companies, Inc.
that gives developer Robert
Spottswood five years, with a
possible five-year extension, to
totally reshape the entrance to
Key West.
The Planning Board approval
will go to the City Commission
for the final go-ahead, most like-
ly at the commission's Feb. 3
meeting.
Spottswood's plan calls for
redevelopment of the triangle
area of the island where U.S. 1
enters Key West. The Days Inn,
Waffle House, Holiday Inn,
Comfort Inn, Radisson and
Conch Tour Train station will all
be taken down and replaced with
a 450-room hotel, 50 workforce
housing apartments, 33 time-
share units, 21 residential con-
dos, a 20,500-square-foot con-
ference center, 21,000 square
feet of retail space and a 250-
seat restaurant and bar on a 17-
acre parcel at 3820 N. Roosevelt
Blvd.
The development agreement
rolls all necessary city approvals,
conditional uses and variances
into one phased project.
"It's going to be what you see
when you come into town.

Special session
The Planning Board con-
venes for a special session on
Jan. 22 to discuss changes to the
city's Building Permit
Allocation System (BPAS), pro-
posed by city staff.
The BPAS is governed by the
city's rate-of-growth ordinance,
declared expired by Judge
Wayne Miller in early 2008. The
ordinance mandates develop-
ment, density and zoning
according to hurricane evacua-
tion clearance times that were
formulated after the 1990 cen-
sus.
Currently, development in
Key West has been designated as
zoning-in-progress, which effec-
tively halts all development
except for workforce housing.
The proposed changes, made
by the city's planning depart-
ment, are primarily administra-
tive and add a mechanism to
account for all existing and new
permit allocations, and require a
report to the City Commission
annually.
The Planning Board in
December voted to table the pro-
posed changes, citing a desire to
have direct involvement from
the state Department of
Community Affairs, the agency
that has final say over land use
in areas of critical state concern
like the Keys.
Since then, city staff has
received a courtesy report from
the DCA giving preliminary
support of the changes, trigger-
ing another review by the
Planning Board.
City planning staff was
instructed by the City
Commission in November 2008
to make minimal changes to the
ordinance until a thorough
rewriting of the city's compre-
hensive plan, which provides
long-term guidelines and laws to
regulate land use and was
penned in 1993, can be under-
taken throughout the year.
The Planning Board meets at
6 p.m. on Jan. 22 in Old City
Hall, Greenie-Street'.

Code enforcer coming back?


Commission to
vote on Young
settlement
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission on Wednesday is sched-
uled to vote on whether to
approve a settlement between the
city and fired code compliance
officer Jim Young that would put
Young in place as the new depart-
ment head and pay him back
wages.
According to the agreement,
the city would reinstate Young as
a permanent, full-time employee
serving as the senior manager of
the code compliance department
at an initial salary of $60,000 per
year. The city would also give
Young back pay from the date of
his termination until he got anoth-
er job at the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office and
will negotiate with Young to
cover some of his attorney's fees.
City Commissioner Bill
Verge; who came down on the
Code Compliance Department
last year for being inefficient,
said Young's management will
help revitalize the department.
"Code-enforcement does need
to be reorganized from top to bot-
tom," Verge said. "He [Young]
was in the process of doing that
before he was terminated. I think
Jim kind of got caught up in the
politics of the thing. He's not
demanding the city admit they
made a mistake. There's not any
animosity on either side."
In 2003 Young left the
Broward Sheriff's Office after 21
years of service to take a post
with Key West's code enforce-


ment department as a contract
employee charged with going
undercover to investigate illegal
transient rentals.
Young's contract with the city
was extended three times after his
initial hiring and in early October
2006, he began the process of
moving from contract employee
to full-time employee with all
applicable benefits.
Then, on Oct. 13,2006, Young
was terminated without reason by
then-City Manager Julio Avael.
Young sued the city, claiming
a violation of the state Whistle-
blower's Act. He argued that he
was fired for ordering construc-
tion to stop at a property owned
by Bill Grosscup at 13 Hilton
Haven Drive.
Young asserts in his lawsuit
that then-Assistant City Manager
John Jones intervened on behalf
of his friend Bill Grosscup to
have the stop-work notice


reversed.
Jones disputes these allega-
tions and wonders why he was
never called in for deposition by
the city during the settlement
process.
"I have no idea why they fired
him," Jones told the Keynoter.
"It's an insult to my personal and
professional integrity that I would
have someone fired." As far as
his friendship with Grosscup,
Jones said, "I've got 26,000 per-
sonal friends in Key West."
In a letter hand-delivered to
the Keynoter by Jones on
Thursday, and sent to Mayor
Morgan McPherson and the city
commissioners, Jones wrote that
because he was not deposed
"Any settlement of the City
which confirms or implies that I
was in any way involved in Jim
Young's firing will require me to
seek an attorney and file suit
against all parties involved."
At the time, Jones maintained
that Grosscup did not need city.

Cops: Dad dealt drugs
to support family

A Stock Island man who
reportedly told detectives he was
dealing drugs to support his
three children was arrested
Thursday on drug charges.
Detectives with the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office arrested
Bayardo Gomez, 23, at his home
on 9th Avenue on Stock Island at
9 a.m. Thursday. His three
young children were in the
house, Deputy Becky Herrin
said.
She said Gomez told detec-

been dealing drugs for about two
months to support his family.
In the house, she said, detec-
tives found 22 grams of pow-
dered cocaine, six grams of
crack cocaine, six Darvocet
pills, 13 Xanax pills and 15
ecstasy pills. Detectives also
found three digital scales com-
monly used to weigh drugs.
Gomez was charged with
possession of cocaine with
intent to sell, trafficking in
ecstasy, possession of a con-
trolled substance without a pre-
scription and possession of drug
paraphernalia.

Who let the dogs out?


Council did
in approving
a dog park
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Traffic at the Field .of
Dreams Children's Rotary Park
should increase significantly in
the near future now that the
Marathon City Council has
granted a group of dog lovers
the right to let their hounds
play there.
The group appeared before
the council on numerous occa-
sions the past.year and was
finally granted permission
Tuesday. The dog park will be
situated on a roughly one-acre
unused parcel at the front of
the Rotary Park.
"I think it's time we own up
and show some support instead


of talking about it," Mayor
Mike Cinque said. The city's
financial commitment is mini-
mal, since the group, a loose
consortium of dog owners, has
pledged to raise whatever
money is necessary to build a
fence and amenities for the
park.
"This has been going on
since I was running for office.
Every time we've put an obsta-
cle in front of them, they've
don't it," Councilwoman
Ginger Snead said.
The final hurdle seemed to.
be moving the proposed dog
park from its original intended
site at the city-owned events
field between 98th and 99th
streets to the Rotary Park,
which is at U.S. 1 and 75th
Street.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
proposed the. move, which


reduces costs significantly by
eliminating an estimated
$7,000 water hookup fee. The
group now estimates startup
costs of $15,600: $14,000 for
fencing, $1,000 for a rules sign
and $600 for a waste recepta-
cle.
Group Chairwoman Mary
Stella told the council the dog
owners are amenable to the
location and reiterated taxpay-
ers will not foot the bill.
"Our group recognized the
economic climate. We under-
stand the reluctance to extend
any city monies," she said.
"We are committed to raise the
funds that are needed."
The group submitted a
revised business plan to the
City Council Tuesday. Among
the fundraising possibilities:
Sponsoring a section of fence,
doggie bags with printed
advertising, neighborhood dog
washes, raffles, dinner and a


pet parade.
Several of the group's mem-
bers spoke in favor of the dog
park, including Stand Up for
Animals Director Linda
Gottwald. She questioned the
city's hesitation at having to
insure the park, as it does other
public facilities like Sombrero
Beach and the Marathon
Community Park.
"I feel if we were singled
out as a group to have to get
insurance, that would be a little
discriminatory. I think we
worked really hard for a long
time; I hesitate to keep putting
it off and putting it off,"
Gottwald said.
The Community Park
includes a skate park, a hobby
Stella joked she's unlikely to
take up at her age.
"That doesn't make me not
pleased the city has these
amenities for my neighbors,"
she said.

Slaton sworn

in as judge


All smiles
the week before
election trial
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com
Judge Tegan Slaton was offi-
cially welcomed to Monroe
County Circuit Court by a stand-
ing-room-only crowd on Friday
afternoon at the Freeman Justice
Center in Key West. The ceremo-
ny went on despite the fact that
the election challenge brought by
Mary Vanden Brook, Slaton's
opponent in the November elec-
tion, will be heard by a judge in
Tallahassee next week.
Slaton kept his remarks brief
and thanked his supporters. "I
want everyone who voted for me
to know, and for those that didn't,
I will work hard in the next six
years."
"This ceremony is formal
recognition, by the court, of
Judge Slaton's election," said
Chief Judge Luis Garcia.
Slaton took over'from retiring
Judge Sandra Taylor on.Jan. 6,
handling the caseload of the fam-
ily and probate divisions.
Vanden Brook filed suit
against Slaton in November, con-
testing the results of the election
and alleging there were impropri-
eties in the ballot review process
as well as the manual and
machine recounts.
The case is going to be heard,
beginning Wednesday, by Leon
County Circuit Court Judge
Kevin Davey.
Last week, both sides filed
rpotions jockeying for position


before the trial.
On Tuesday of this week,
Davey denied one motion,
brought forth by Slaton's team,
asking the court to exclude evi-
dence and testimony related to
absentee ballots that the county
Elections Canvassing Board -
comprising judges Wayne Miller
and Ruth Becker and Tax
Collector Danise Henriquez -
rejected.


Slaton took-
over from
retiring
Judge
Sandra
Taylor
on Jan. 6.

Last week Davey denied
another Slaton motion asking the
court to exclude evidence and
testimony relating to absentee
ballots that were faxed into the
Monroe County Supervisor of
Elections Office.
Vanden Brook lost to Slaton
by four votes after the ballot
review and recounts.
Slaton will serve a six-year
term and make about $140,000 per
year. For the latest developments

Grouper rule coming back for consideration


But this time,
fish ban would
be permanent
-By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A possible four-month
grouper closure in federal
Atlantic Ocean waters returns in
the latest version of snapper-
grouper rules proposed by the
National Marine Fisheries
Service.
"We got a reprieve in
December when the NMFS
abandoned the closure as an


interim rule," said Islamorada
charter captain Bill Kelly, "but
the [proposed permanent rule]
is exactly the same."
The January-through-April
closure for most types of shal-
low-water grouper in federal
Atlantic waters is contained in
Amendment 16 to the Snapper-
Grouper Fishery Management
Plan administered under the
South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council.
A comment period on the
draft plan ends Feb. 23.
"After all the comments are
collected, staff will review them
before publishing the final


rule," said Kim Iverson, spokes-
woman for the South Atlantic
Council. "Then a new round of
public hearings will be held."
The grouper closure, which
the feds say is needed to protect
spawning fish, seemed like it
would take effect Jan. 1, 2009,
after an emergency rule was
endorsed by the South Atlantic
Council.
But when various delays
threatened to reduce the length
of the closure, the closure was
dropped for 2009.
In announcing there would
be no 2009 closure, NMFS
regional administrator Roy
Crabtree said the permanent
rule could be adopted "by late


spring or early summer," setting
the stage for a closure starting
in January 2010.
"I'm cautiously optimistic
that won't happen," Kelly said.
"My personal thought is even if
additional protections are war-
ranted for the shallow-water
grouper, it's doubtful that it
would be as severe as a four-
month closure across the board
for black grouper, red grouper
and gag grouper."
State fishery biologists are
taking the lead in a new stock
assessment for red and black
grouper, expected to be released
next January.
Kelly, who will serve on the
study's advisory panel, said it


makes little sense to adopt per-
manent rules this year when
more complete species popula-
tion studies will be available
early in 2010.
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council is moving
to ease rules on grouper, he
said. "The dividing line [from
South Atlantic waters] would be
the yellow line down the middle
of U.S. 1," he said. "How can
we have such drastically differ-
ent stock assessments?"
A grouper closure this year
would have devastated the
sportfishing industry in the
Keys, Kelly said.
"Look at the fire at Cheeca
Lodge, which was responsible
for hundreds of bluewater and
backcountry fishing trips," he
said.
Draft rules under Amend-
ment 16 are available online at
the National Marine Fisheries
Service Web site, Sero.NMFS
.NOAA.gov.

Aim: Reduce false claims


Wigington
is proposing
penalties
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


In an attempt to curtail
fraudulent claims and frivolous
lawsuits aimed at fleecing Keys
taxpayers, Monroe County
Commissioner Kim Wigington
is backing what she calls a
false-claims ordinance to be
considered at the Jan. 28 com-
mission meeting.
While language in the pro-
posed ordinance is geared
toward contractors, Wigington
said it is not limited to them.
Offenses would range from
unsubstantiated service invoic-
es to "slip-and-fall" lawsuits,
Wigington said.
"We have to go through the
County Attorney's Office; they
have to prepare for frivolous
lawsuits, and right now we'd
get our legal fees and that's
about it if it was found to be
frivolous," she said. "Staff is
spending so much time and
money on things."
But Wigington was adamant
that false claims are not paid
out even now only that the
county lacks an effective mech-
anism to discourage them.
"These invoices are scruti-
nized painfully so by the clerk
and I don't want people to think
that's [incorrect payments] hap-
pening now," she said.
Wigington said she hopes a
section in the ordinance that
would allow private whistle
blowers to file suits on behalf
of the county will help deter
such claims from being made.
Under her proposal, whoev-
er brings the suit is awarded 5
percent of damages if anything
is awarded and if the county
tries it, and 25 percent if the,
county's attorneys are not
involved.
"That's what deters a lot of
people from trying to swindle
the county out of money, if they
know anyone can file on behalf
of the county," Wigington said.
Wigington was put onto the
ordinance by newly' sworn-in
State Attorney Dennis Ward,
who was familiar with a false-
claims law in Miami-Dade
County. It was exactly what she
was interested in for Monroe


County.
"This has stood the test of
time there.since 1999. It's held
up in court over and over
again," Wigington said of the
Miami-Dade ordinance.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said the county does
"get a lot of claims" that are


frequently settled for anywhere
from "a couple hundred dollars
to a couple thousand dollars."
"My hope is that it provides
a deterrence to people who file
questionable claims and that we
end up denying," Hutton said,
adding "invoices that can't be
supported with appropriate
documentation" are not uncom-
mon.

Hyatt timeshare fires staff As Seen on TV


Sales dip,
local reps
lose their jobs
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Hyatt Vacation Club in
Key West implemented a round of
corporate-mandated layoffs last
week in the sales and marketing
departments. Corporate says it's a
sign of the times: Those who were
fired say it's a raw deal.
"I have three boys in college.
What am I going to do? I've got to
go to work," said Bob Waulters, a
Hyatt Vacation Club sales rep who
lost his job last week.
Waulters, 60, left his wife and
kids to work for the Hyatt, mov-
ing from St. Augustine to Key
West about six weeks ago.
"I thought I had a future here,"
Waulters said. "I have nothing.
I'm going to go to work at Winn-
Dixie stocking shelves. It's hard
to be happy. I wanted to make
this a career."
Waulters worked a booth at
the corner of Caroline and Duval
streets in Old Town Key West.
His job was to entice passersby,
with promises of cash or
coupons, to take a tour of the
Hyatt's timeshare property,
Windward Pointe, located near
Key West International Airport
on South Roosevelt Blvd.
Windward Pointe is operated
by Hyatt and owned by Key West-
based Spottswood Companies
Inc., which also owns the Marriot
Beachside Hotel, the Coconut


Beach Resort, the Holiday Inn and
the Comfort Inn, all in Key West.
SThe Windward Pointe proper-
ty, built in 2001, has 104 two-
bedroom, two-bath units that are
priced according to the season.
Hyatt divides the year into five
seasons: The cheapest buy-in for
one week of unit ownership is
just under $10,000; the highest,
around Christmas and Fantasy
Fest, is about $30,000.
"We don't typically comment
a lot on these types of things,"
said Larry Shulman, a senior vice
president at Hyatt's Beverly Hills
office, when asked about the lay-
offs. The Hyatt Vacation Club, he
said, is "No different than any
business across the
country...we've had to revisit our
business model and downsize."
SData from the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office shows
sales of timeshares at Windward
Pointe in 2008 are half what they
were in 2007.
Just 263 timeshares sold in
2008, compared to 583 in 2007,
though the average sale price
actually increased slightly in
2008 to $21,551.
Waulters says he was shocked
to be out of a job, but had noticed
that street-level interest in touring a
timeshare property was on the
decline. He says people seemed to
be spending less time on vacation
and packing more in, with no time
to get over to see Windward Pointe,
next to the airport in Key West.
Waulters said the Hyatt paid
him $6.79 per hour plus $50 for
every timeshare tour he booked.


"I'm done. I'm going to have
to go to unemployment. It's sad,"
he said, noting that he's especial-
ly sorry to leave Key West. "I
loved every minute of it," he said
last week.
"They're in a hurry to get as
much out of their time as possible
and they're stressed," Waulters
said of the tourists he encountered
on Duval Street. "The economy is
hitting their vacations. You don't
see many smiles going by."
The story was the same at
another Hyatt booth, also on
Duval Street. Phadra Pryce said
she spent $5,000, which she does-
n't plan on recouping, moving to
Key West from Cocoa Beach.
"I uprooted my whole life to
move to Key West to work for the
Hyatt," Pryce said. She moved
with her young daughter and
dependent mother. Pryce placed
her mother in the Key West
Convalescent Center and she was
subsequently relocated to the
Plantation Key Convalescent
Center when the Key West loca-
tion closed in early December.
"That's it. We're done." And
the timing couldn't have been
worse, Pryce said, "Two weeks
before our season is getting ready
to hit. I don't know." *
Schulman said job cuts were
happening across the board at
many of Hyatt's properties, not
just Key West, and were primari-
ly focused on sales and marketing
personnel. About six people lost
their jobs in Key West last week.
There are about 15 timeshare
properties Keyswide, with seven
of those in Key West.

For you late-night TV
junkies who see appealing
products on infomercials but
don't.have the nerve to give
your credit card information
- to a 1-800 number, good
news: As Seen on TVKey
West is open and co-owner
David Hight brings the sen-
sational, amazing and must-
have products of late-night
television right to Old Town.
Hight opened his store
with co-owners Mike and
Becky Tinnon right before
Christmas.
"The locals have been
really good," Hight said, not-
ing that his location at 420
Eaton St. between the Tropic
SCinema and Sippin' Internet
Cafe doesn't hurt.
Hight sees products on
TV and then orders them for
his store directly from the
wholesaler. He said this
brings the product to the con-
sumer at a lower price than
ordering off of television.
Hot sellers have included
the Big City Slider mini-
burger, press and grill and the
Snuggie, a wearable blanket
with sleeves.
As Seen on TV Key West
is open Monday through
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9
p.m. and from noon until 6
p.m. on Sunday. The phone

Obama is the fulfillment of King's dream
By SEAN KINNEY m
skinney@keynoter.comr


Few can dispute the symbol-
ic timing of this year's Martin
* Luther King Jr. Day and
Tuesday's inauguration of the
nation's first black president.
King Day is always the third
Monday in January and the
presidential inauguration is
always on Jan. 20. That they are
back to back in 2009 is a power-
ful sign that at least some of
King's dream of equality for all
people has come true.
The former will be celebrat-
ed in Key West with a day full
of events. Monday is also the
day that groups Keyswide are
heeding a call from President-
elect Barack Obama and former
Secretary of State Colin Powell
to make King Day a national
Day of Service.

MLK Day
The Boys and Girls Club of
Key West, 1310 Truman Ave., is
sponsoring a cleanup at
Bayview Park on Truman
Avenue from 9 to 10 a.m.
Then a march will take place
starting at 1 p:m. at Nelson
English Park, 300 Catherine St.,
proceed to Duval Street and end
up back at the park.
"Our kids love it and I like to
get them out in the community
doing activism-type things,"
said Mary Brantley, program
director at the Boys and Girls
Club. She said she expects
about 50 Boys and Girls Club
members to turn out for the
march.
Following the march, a cele-
bratory picnic at Nelson English
Park takes place from 2 to 5
p.m.
Following at. 6, Cornish
Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church
at 702 Whitehead St. will host
its annual observance of Martin
Luther King Jr. Day led by Rev.
James Thornton.
Roosevelt Sands Jr., who
was christened at Cornish
Memorial'and has been attend-
ing the church for almost 80
years, said the observance helps
bind the community and pro-
vides an opportunity to support
their Martin Luther King Jr.
Scholarship program.


Boys and Girls Club events
usually put a smile on the
faces of the kids involved and
the Martin Luther King Jr. Day
march promises to do the
same.
"It's for underprivileged,
children who are about to grad-
uate high school," Sands said.
"We don't have a lot of money
but whatever we collect [at the
observance], we give."
Sands said the scholarship
program helps contribute to
three or four college-bound stu-
dents every year.
He expects the crowd to be
plentiful and diverse.
"We love the slogan 'One
Human Family,"' Sands said,
"and usually that's what you see
there. There are people from
every section of the communi-
ty" participating in the celebra-
tion.
Key West City Com-
,missioner Clayton Lopez says
Martin Luther King Jr. Day can-
not be disconnected from
Tuesday's Obama inauguration.
At -his behest, the City
Commission on Jan. 6 declared
this coming Tuesday Barack
Obama Day.
"I truly believe this to be the
most significant proclamation
this commission has ,yet
passed," he said, adding that
Obama represents "our collec-
tive future."
But he also said, "We would
be remiss if we didn't mention
another man," King Jr. "After
the dream was revealed, it was
realized," Lopez said.
"I am honored to have lived
in this time even if I have to
leave tomorrow," Lopez said.
Tuesday at Key West High
School, inauguration festivities
starting at 11 a.m. will be
broadcast on a wide screen at
the school's auditorium.

Admission is free.
The seafood festival's menu
typically features fresh Florida
lobster, grouper, stone crab
claws, deepwater golden crab,
Key West pink shrimp and
more including favorite
dishes such as savory conch
chowder, sweet flan and Key

"Super Grouper" focuses
on the life history of the

inspiring fish. "As the popula-
tion of this giant fish has
recovered over the last few
years, many in the recreational
fishing community are pushing
to re-open the fishery," says
Emmy Award-winning produc-
er Alexa Elliott. "But scientists
who closely study the species
say such a move would be pre-
mature."
"Super Grouper" will have
its broadcast premiere on 2HD

This program is the first of
twelve episodes of Changing
Seas, a new science series pro-
duced by WPBT-2. The series
takes viewers to the heart of

Famous writers
make believe
lives from faces
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge @ keynoter.com

Curt Richter, a photogra-
pher now living in Helsinki,
came to Key West for the first
time last year, hoping to con-
tinue work on a series of
nudes. But then he began tak-
ing photographs of writers
and students at the Key West
Literary Seminar, which bore
some similarity to the por-
traits of Southern writers he'd
done for the Southern Arts
Federation. But he found
other subjects outside that
small circle and ended up
photographing a number of
ordinary people in Key West.
An exhibit of those photo-
graphs is now up in the main
hall of The Studios of Key
West, in the old Armory
building on White Street.
They're presented in conjunc-
tion with the Key West
Literary Seminar, which con-
tinues through Sunday,
exploring the theme
"Historical Fiction and the
Search for Truth."
SThe exhibit, entitled "Still
and All" includes 18 photo-
graphs, all black and white,
made with what's called a
"view camera" and produced
using a nineteenth century
process. Next to each photo-
graph is what appears to be
an obituary of sorts, fninus
the date of death, but is really
a made-up biography matched
with the photograph, written
by a writer connected with
the Key West Literary
Seminar. Judy Blume wrote a
biographical sketch of the
three-year-old daughter of
Eric Holowacz, executive
director of The Studios of
Key West, imagining her as a
grown woman named Mireille
Victoria Faro-Simonetta. And
Martin Lehman wrote a pre-
tend biography based on the
photograph of Henry James


scholar Robert D. Richardson,
naming the biographical per-
sona "Albert Basler." It.
begins this way: "Albert
Basler, a 77-year-old retired
vintner from Southern
Illinois, moved to Key West
in the winter of 2000, follow-
ing a severe financial loss in
Y2K survival gear and a
failed desalination business."
Richter is back in Key
West this week and next,
serving his second tour of
duty as artist-in-residence at


Arlen Baden in
January of 2007.
Baden, a former
guidance
counselor from
New York, had
come to Key
West a short time
before and was
living in his van. -
Photograph by Curt
Richter
The Studios of Key West, and
looking for more people to
photograph in a studio he's
setting up in a space on
Duval Street.
"Still and All" will be on
exhibit at The Studios of Key
West through Jan. 29, from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m., and some
evenings and weekends.
To inquire about sitting for
a Curt Richter portrait next
week, call The Studios of Key

Sculpture Key West returns


Exhibit opens
at West Martello
on January 18
Thirty-two contemporary
sculptures are to appear in the
area of two historic Civil War-
era forts during the 14th annual
Sculpture Key West exhibition.
Set for Jan. 18 through April
18, the open-air exhibition
spotlights the talent-of interna-
tional, national and local sculp-
tors.
Among the projected high-
lights of the 2009 exhibition
are a giant glowing halo, a
massive mirror that appears to
double the size of its beach-
front setting, an audio installa-
tion starring two "argumenta-
tive" pay phones and a 300-
foot line demonstrating the
curve of the earth.
Sculptures were selected for
the show by a jury led by
Shamim Momin, associate
curator of the Whitney
Museum in New York.
Many of the 2009 selections
are site-specific, dependent on
their settings to provide mean-
ing or context. Some pieces
will be constructed on site, and
will exist only until the exhibi-
tion's end.
Sculptures will be on dis-
play beginning Sunday, Jan. 18,
at West Martello Tower,

kwadlow@keynoter.com


The seniors on Coral Shores
High School's girls soccer team
finally got their win over nemesis
Gulliver Prep.
Freshman striker Jasmine
Paterson scored three goals
Tuesday night as the Hurricanes
upset the Raiders, 3-2.
"First win over them in four
years," said veteran senior Julia


Hatfield. "Yeah, it felt really
good."
"Everybody on the field
played the game of their lives,"
said Hurricane coach Arthur
Paterson. "That was one of the
best games I've seen these girls
play."
Late Thursday, Coral Shores
(9-2; 7-1 district) learned that
tiebreakers give the Lady
Hurricanes the regular-season
district title heading into this

Storr leads
Key West over

rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A stout Key West High
School defense forced repeat-
ed turnovers Thursday, which
led to easy fast-break points
and a runaway 57-27 victory
over county rival Marathon
High School.
Chelsea Storr led the way
for the basketball Lady
Conchs with 20 points her
eighth consecutive 20-point
game. Point guard Alicia
Arrazola had several steals
and 11 points of her own.
"We like to pressure and
get our points off that. She
was doing that for me," coach
Glenn Hayes said of Arrazola.


Shaniya Watson had eight
points and seven rebounds,
while Taryn Weller had four
blocked shots to go along with
two rebounds and two points.
Hayes said he was happy
with his team's performance
but upset the girls left points
on the court.
"We missed a lot of layups,
which we're going to have to
work on," he said following
the game.
The Conchs main goal was
to tune up for a district game
Saturday against St. Brendan
High School. The team is 13-
4, including a 5-1 record in
District 16 Class 4A play.

The boys soccer Conchs
kept the pressure on the Coral
Shores defense Thursday, giv-
ing Key West West High
School a 4-1 win over their
local rivals.
"The game was never really
in question," said Conch coach
Jason Clifford. "We controlled
the ball, had numerous attacks
and several corner kicks but
couldn't finish the ball in the
goal" most of the time.
Coral Shores coach Jorge
Bosque said the Canes have
only two games remaining this
week to regain their form
before the District 16-3A
Tournament, being played in


Tavernier.
"Not to take anything away
from Key West, which has a
good club, but we were missing
four starters," Bosque said.
"That makes it tough, especial-
ly against a fast team like Key
West."
The absences, laid to injury
and missed practices, cost the
Canes, he said.
Monnel Azard, Alphonso
Arteaga, Sean Hamilton and
Fernard Moradel scored for the
Conchs.
Coral Shores was down, 2-0,
before the Hurricanes got a
goal by Jose Lujambio, off an
assist from Mike Hampson.
Key West (8-11-3) was able
to give its freshmen extensive


playing time, Clifford said.
"It was a strange game,"
Clifford said. "[Coral Shores]
seemed flat; we seemed disin-
terested."
Key West hosts Reagan
High School at 1 p.m. today.
Coral Shores plays at home at 4
p.m. Tuesday against Bay
Point, and at 5 p.m. Thursday
against Marathon High Schodl.
"Marathon's tough," Bosque
said. "They beat us down at
their place so we have to be
ready."
The District 16-3A
Tournament opens Jan. 27 at
Coral Shores. The Hurricanes
face Ransom Everglades at 7
p.m., after Gulliver plays
Archbishop Carroll. The cham-
pionship game is Jan. 30.


Tie goes to the Hurricanes


CHAMPS/ From 28

here," Paterson said.
Finishing first gives the Canes
a slight seeding edge in tourna-
ment matches, but it doesn't take
a fortune-teller to see a Coral
Shores vs. Gulliver matchup in
the Jan. 23 championship round.
"This win was very big
because now our girls know they
can beat Gulliver," Paterson said.
"If we play our best, we can be
very good."
"We know they'll really be
coming at us next time," said
defender Mnddie loeprnn


"Our defense really stepped
up and shut dowh Gulliver's best
players," Paterson said of this
week's win. "Vee Lopez was very
impressive."
Goaltender Amber Spaulding
"made four or five outstanding
saves that prevented goals,"
Paterson said.
Before the game, seniors
Hatfield, Jen Jenkins and Megan
Guenther talked about how they
had never defeated Gulliver Prep.
"Now they've got that off
their backs," the coach said.
Coral Shores held a 2-1 lead
on their home field at halftime
but Gulliver tied the match mid-


way in the second half.
With about 10 minutes
remaining, Hatfield and Jasmine
Paterson. worked a combination
play for the winning goal.
Cerene Arsenault and Jenkins
made assists on the two first-half
goals.
The tournament begins
Tuesday at Archbishop Carroll,
with the championship slated for
Jan. 23. First-round game times
were not available at press time.
Coral Shores closed the regu-
lar season Friday with a match
against.Key West High School
(results pending at press time).

Marathon High School in the 6
p.m. Tuesday semifinal of the
District 16-2A Tournament,
being played in Marathon.
The Lady Eagles wanted to
win all four games in the 2009
portion of the regular season,
said coach Sheryl Yost. They
started well with two lopsided
victories.
The Miami Christian tie
was "a heartbreaker because it
was a match we could have
won," Yost said. "But we did-
n't lose, so that's a good
thing."
Island Christian lost the
season's first meeting to
Miami Christian.
"We came out this time and
played a great first half, crazy
good," Yost said.

Pace," he joked.
Marathon coach Amanda
Hirschauer said a slow start
and turnovers hurt her team's
chances against the Conchs.
"We'll continue to work on
our press breaker," she said.
Senior Vanessa Sardina
played well in the post, scor-
ing 10 points, while point
guard Marquita White scored
eight points.
The Conchs pressured early
and often and built a 20-10
lead midway through the sec-
ond quarter. Four consecutive
Dolphins turnovers leading to
transition baskets or free-
throw attempts made it a 28-
10 lead.

Baskets by White and
Sardina made it 28-14 at the
half.
The two teams played even
early in the third quarter, but
Key West expanded its lead
later by causing a number of
turnovers. With the scored 32-
19, Key West exploded for a
17-0 run and a 49-19 lead
heading into the fourth quar-
ter.

Fins upend Victors
Marathon earned its third
victory of the season Tuesday


with a 36-25 win over Miami
Christian School.
Hirschauer said the girls
played well defensively, even
holding the Victors scoreless
for the entire second quarter.
The Dolphins held a 21-4 lead
at halftime.
Senior Latrice Jackson
scored 16 points to lead the
team, while Alaina Davis had
10 points, nine rebounds and
three blocked shots.
The team is now 3-7 this
season.


Striker Kate DuPre scored
both Eagles goals as the
islanders took a 2-0 halftime
lead. But the club squandered
too many chances to score that
would have put the game out
of reach, the coach said.
"We knew Miami was
going to come out and push us
in the second half," Yost said.
"They played well, and we
were a little off. We made
some mistakes."
The Lady Eagles know they
cannot afford mistakes against
the Lady Dolphins.
Marathon won the season's
first meeting, but the improv-
ing Eagles forced a scoreless
tie in the second match.
"We're playing good soccer,
so we're as ready as we'll ever
be," Yost said.

Valdez's slender frame belies his basketball skill


KEY WEST / From 28

my own zone."
The 17-year-old sophomore
point guard's confidence doesn't
surprise coach Paul Davis, who
said, "He has a coolness about
the game. He loves pressure."
Valdez made all 17 of his foul
shots last Saturday in a 29-point
performance against Mater
Academy (the state record is 18
for 18) and his streak of 29
extends over four games.
He needs seven more in a row
to tie the 36 set by Gabe
Corchiani of Hialeah Miami
Lakes in the 1981-82 season.
All that night practice on his
lighted patio in Bahama Village


has paid off. "I'll shoot maybe a
hundred a day," he said. "If I
miss two in a row, I quit."
Valdez is one reason why the
Conchs (7-8) are vastly
improved this season.
In addition to leading in
assists and steals, he is second to
Vladimyr Sibera in scoring and
has put up 64 points in his last
three games. He can shoot 3-
pointers but prefers to cut and
drive, braids flying, to the bas-
ket.
"He is so fast," Mater
Academy's Angel Borges said
after last Saturday's game.
SValdez's slender 5-10 frame
belies a surprising strength.
Having taken big hits as a quar-
terback on the JV football team,


he isn't intimidated by bigger
opponents who await his
corkscrew-style forays to the
hoop.
"I know I'm small, so I have
to be tougher," he said. "I've got
good balance. If I get bumped, I
can pause in the air and still get
the shot off."
One of 15 Florida players


who participated in the USA
Junior National International
Sports Festival last summer in
Columbus, Ohio, Valdez has
emerged as a team leader, a role
with which few sophomores are
entrusted.
"I listen to them," he said of
his teammates, "and they listen
to me. But I visualize the game


better. I try to give them tiis
without getting mad at them. I'll
say, 'Chill, relax, don't take
crazy shots, help us win.' "
Davis has been looking for
such a player for four years,
someone who can take over and
rally the other players. "He can
back up what he says," the cioaic
said.
