A new military force is form-
ing in the Upper Keys to defend
against potential attacks from a
foe in Key West.
The attacks won't come in the
form of bombs, missiles or
artillery, but stale Cuban bread.
"They threatened to bomb us
with stale Cuban bread with one
of their airplanes of their mili-
tary," said Robert DiGiorgio,
owner of Cafe Largo and the
Bayside Grille in Key Largo.
"We were defenseless, so we
are creating a military in the
Upper Keys to counter theirs," he
added. "We want people to regis-
ter their roller skates, surfboards,
planes or helicopters as vehicles
in our military."
DiGiorgio and other members
of the nonprofit Upper Keys
Business Group have essentially
declared war on Key West resi-
dent Peter Anderson, the secre-
tary general of the Conch

Tallahassee jurist sends Vanden Brook
back to discovery for more depositions


Vanden Brook's claims but wants
to see more depositions.
Vanden Brook presented dep-
ositions from 16 absentee voters
whose ballots were rejected, but


Davey said it's not enough.
"He thinks their vote should
be counted, and he's going to
give us two to three weeks to try
and get in touch with them,"
Vanden Brook told the Keynoter
of the other 50 absentee voters.


"It's really going to come
down to the absentee ballots. This
was exactly what we always
wanted for every vote to
count."
Vanden Brook brought suit
against Slaton in November after
a manual recount showed she'd
lost the election by four votes.

You've heard of six-toed cats, but have you heard of a barhopping six-toed cat with a

debut next month on national television.

The Tourist Development
Council unveiled a new adver-
tisement this week promoting
Key West nightlife filmed from
a uniquely Key West point of
view that of a six-toed cat.
Called the "Key West Six


Toed Cat Cam," the 32-second
spot is a montage of video
from the camera mounted on
the head of Aurora the cat. The
video shows tourists dancing
and partying at Duval Street
hotspots mixed with shots of
the cat and exteriors of popular
bars like Sloppy Joe's and the
Green Parrot.
Dorn Martell, creative
director for Tinsley
Advertising Miami, the TDC's
advertising company, said


there were some challenges
involved with the weeklong
video shoot.
"It was not easy. It's a cat,"
Martell said of Aurora, a direct
descendant of the original six-
toed Hemingway cats.
"They're not really easy to
train."
In this case, a cat trainer
from the Keys worked with
Aurora using a noisemaker and
treats to reward her when she

Temperature
falls to 47
early Friday
By DAVID HAWKINS
dhawkins@ke5sreporter.com


Key West had a chilly,
record-breaking low temperature
overnight Thursday into Friday
when the island city cooled into
the upper 40s for only the third
time in the last three years.
The official temperature
taken at Key West International
Airport fell to 47 degrees just
after 2 a.m. Friday, according to
Key West's National Weather
Service office.
That reading was 5 degrees
colder than the previous lowest
temperature 52 degrees -
recorded on a Jan. 23. The previ-


ous record had stood since 1961,
according to a Weather Service
forecast statement released early
Friday morning.
The last time Key West saw a
low of 47 degrees on any day
was Jan. 3, 2008, NWS person-
nel said.
Unusually, Key West was the
coldest place in the Florida Keys
overnight. The coldest tempera-
ture wasn't felt elsewhere in the
Keys because a light breeze
blowing over the surrounding
waters kept most locations in the
mid-50s. But the wind went per-
fectly calni over the southern-
most city and with clear skies,
more heat escaped:
Forecasters had expected a
low-temperature record to be
broken a day earlier, but the offi-
cial low on Thursday turned out


to be 1 degree above the Jan. 22
record of 49 degrees set in 1985.
Thursday night may have
spelled the end of the cold spell
in the Florida Keys. Forecasters
say temperatures should rebound
on Friday to the upper 60s at
most locations, with sunny skies,
and temperatures in the 70s are
forecast for the weekend.
The cold weather hasn't just
chilled locals and visitors; it's
also made the water nippy.
Nearshore sea surface tempera-
tures have cooled significantly
during the last few days, the
weather service said.
Those looking for more typi-
cally balmy winter weather
should be pleased with the
longer-range forecast.
Temperatures and humidity will
slowly increase throughout next
week, forecasters said Friday
morning.

One of six defendants in a
massive lobster poaching case in
the Keys dubbed Operation:
Freezer Burn pleaded guilty
Thursday in Miami federal court
to one count of conspiracy.
John Niles, 50, a house painter
from LaBelle, admitted to U.S.
District Court Judge Jose
Martinez that he helped with the
illegal harvest of more than 1,100
lobsters from manmade struc-
tures known as casitas placed in
the waters of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary last
August.
"Is it true?" the judge asked
the defendant after prosecutor
Thomas Watts-FitzGerald read a
statement of facts from the plea
agreement in open court.
"Yes, sir," Niles answered.
Martinez set sentencing for
April 2 and allowed Niles to
remain free on bond. Niles could
receive up to five years in prison
plus a $250,000 fine.
Watts-FitzGerald character-


ized the defendant as having a
"minor role" in the alleged lob-
ster-poaching operation led by
Dave Dreifort of Cudjoe Key. He
said Niles has agreed to provide
"substantial assistance" to the
government in preparing its case
against Dreifort and his co-defen-
dants: wife Denise Dreifort; char-
ter fishing captains Rob Hammer
of Miami and Mike Delph of Key
West; and Sean Reyngoudt of
Summerland Key.
The six were arrested on
opening day of lobster season last
August after federal agents
watched them place artificial
habitats in the water, then dive
down with scuba gear to harvest
lobsters from the sites. The
defendants allegedly stored the
illegal catch in underwater cages,
then transported the cages to
Dreifort's home with the intent to
sell the catch.
Authorities seized .nearly
1,500 pounds of wrung lobster
tail when they arrested Dreifort.
Federal agents also seized the
28-foot Whitewater used for div-
ing, along with a 21-foot Wahoo
boat, an 18-foot Action Craft
boat, a 2004 Ford Excursion, a
2002 Ford pickup and a 2003
Chevy Suburban.

struggle.
Martell said Tinsley came up
with the "cat cam" idea as a
unique way to deal with the
challenges of highlighting Key
West's many bars and clubs in
such an abbreviated format.
"It's a cool experience," he
said, referring to Key West's
wild nightlife, "but how well
does it photograph and what's
the vehicle that takes you from
place to place?" Answer: A cat
with a camera mounted on its
head. Obviously.
Philip Hogue, chairman of
the TDC's district advisory com-
mittee in Key West, said his
committee approved the concept
two months ago and is pleased
with the finished product.
"We've gotten into kind of a


rut with our advertising," he
said, mentioning generic clips of
sport fishing and picturesque
beach scenes. "We wanted to
show a little more of the
nightlife. People know Key West
for that."
The video is set to roll out on
national television in early
February. It's been on YouTube
for about two weeks, where it's
been watched more than 600
times.
' Harold Wheeler,, director of
the TDC, said they're spending
about $164,000 on the "cat cam"
spot and showing it on major
networks with an emphasis on
the New York, Philadelphia and
Chicago markets.
You can view the video
online by going to www

No fire service consolidation for now


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Fire-rescue services between
the city of Marathon and village
of Islamorada will remain under
Monroe County's supervision for
the foreseeable future.
That was the general feeling
after a meeting this week between
officials from the county,
Marathon and Layton to discuss a
possible regionalization of fire
protection. The county has fire sta-
tions on Conch Key and in Layton.
County Mayor George


Neugent said it's not in the coun-
ty's -best interest to turn over an
$800 million tax base in Duck
Key, Conch Key and Layton that
helps finance Monroe Fire Rescue.
"There just was no benefit for
unincorporated Monroe County
in doing it. Removing the tax
base ... would create a tremen-
dous increase in the millage rate
from the Seven Mile Bridge
south," Neugent said.
Skip Haring, administrative
assistant to Layton Mayor


No ruling yet


JUDGE / From 1

Of the more than 10,000
absentee ballots cast, 66 were
rejected by the county Elections
Canvassing Board. Vanden
Brook presented statements from
16 of those voters and Davey has
asked that she come back with
depositions from the other 50..
"It'll be a couple of weeks if
not longer [until a final decision is
reached]," said Hal Schuhmacher,
Slaton's campaign manager.
A trial memorandum filed
Tuesday by Vanden Brook's
attorneys reads: "This is an inde-
pendent judicial inquiry as to
whether doubt exists about
whether a four-vote difference in
almost 33,000 votes reliably
reflects the will of the voters."
The memo goes on to detail
five specific ballots that Vanden
Brook's team claims were
improperly rejected. Basically,
they're claiming the review and
recount process was so "inconsis-
tent, distracting, exhausting and,
at times, chaotic" that mistakes
were made.
The Canvassing Board had
reviewed one ballot and agreed to
accept it as a vote for Vanden
Brook. Vanden Brook, however,
claims that this vote was not
counted.
Another ballot, she claims,
arrived torn from the precinct and
was rejected by the Canvassing
Board in violation of Florida law.
Slaton's camp, in a trial mem-
orandum, wrote: "The plaintiffs'
base their fictionalized claims on
a distortedly sensationalized nar-
rative of the operative facts," and
"the plaintiffs' demand for a per-
fect election, free from any possi-


ble error, is both inconsistent
with controlling law, and con-
trary to accepted practices, so
long as elections officials sub-
stantially complied with election
law requirements."
When she sued, Vanden
Brook requested that either
another election be held or that
she be declared the winner.
Vanden Brook brought on Miami
attorney Kendall Coffey to plead
her case. Coffey gained fame in
2000 as one of the top attorneys
representing the Gore-Lieberman
side during the Florida recount.
On Election Day, Nov. 4, the
results showed Slaton the winner
by nine votes. After a review of
provisional ballots by the
Canvassing Board, that lead
increased to 15 votes. A subse-
quent machine recount came
back with a deadlock, both candi-
dates at 16,441 votes. Finally, a
manual recount of absentee bal-
lots on Nov. 11 showed Slaton
the winner by four.
In the lawsuit, filed Nov. 24,
Vanden Brook alleged that bal-
lots faxed in from overseas were
improperly counted because
some appeared to have been sent
from within the country, which
would violate election law.
She also alleged that the coun-
ty Canvassing Board judges
Wayne Miller and Ruth Becker
and county Tax Collector Danise
Henriquez did not use consis-
tent standards when comparing
signatures on absentee ballots with
those kept on file in the Office of
the Supervisor of Elections.
Slaton took over the caseload
in the family and probate divi-
sions of retiring Judge Sandra
Taylor on Jan. 6 and was official-
ly sworn in on Jan. 16.


Norman Anderson, represented
that city at the meeting. He said
the city has no interest in the city
of Marathon overseeing its emer-
gency services.
"We've been dealing with the
county for 35 years and they've
been good to us," Haring said.
As of Oct. 1, Marathon and
Islamorada started sharing Fire
Chief William Wagner, who had
earlier worked only for the vil-
lage. The two municipalities are
splitting his salary.
Acting Fire Chief Jim
Callahan, who is expected to be
named permanent chief at
Wednesday's County Com-
mission meeting, also said he
opposes relinquishing any of the
county's coverage.
"I'm absolutely not in favor of
it. I very much want to maintain
Monroe County jurisdictions
right now," Callahan said.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi will recommend a salary
of $118,000 plus benefits for
Callahan. That's just $5,900 less
annually than the contract for
Gastesi's first choice, Chad
Brocato of Deerfield Beach,
whose contract was rejected by
the commission.


The main sticking point with
Brocato was a contract employee
status that would have earned
him a healthy severance if termi-
nated early. Callahan will not be a
contract employee.
Callahan wants to fill a vacant
deputy chief position. Gastesi
said $80,000 is budgeted for that.
Meanwhile, Marathon City
Manager Clyde Burnett said the
city will move forward with plans
to put a permanent fire station on
Grassy Key. On Jan. 13, the
council OK'd renting an efficien-
cy apartment and moving a par-
tial crew and fire truck there on a
temporary basis.
The move is expected to


improve the city's overall fire rat-
ing and lower Grassy Key resi-
dents' insurance significantly.
Many are paying inflated premi-
ums because their homes are out-
side of five miles from the nearest
fire station.
"They have too many things
they have to consider, so I said,
We're going to put a fire station
on the eastern end of Grassy Key
where the most population is and
that's what I'm working toward,"
Burnett said.
The County Commission is
expected to weigh in on the issue
at its Wednesday at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
It starts at 9 a.m.

Partnerships

ensure success

The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District board is ask-
ing for a deluge of e-mails to convince federal officials that
sewers qualify for economic stimulus funding.
Susan Hammaker, a board member, notes the Keys has $85
million worth of "shovel ready" infrastructure work ready to go.
And she's asking residents and business owners to send e-
mails making that case to U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and
to Florida's two U.S. senators, Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez.
Her appeal to the public is not the only topical issue that
readers will find in our Letters to the Editor pages. Both the
Keynoter and our sister paper The Reporter publish letters
across a broad range of topics.
Often, a scan of the headlines gives a quick summary of
what's uppermost in people's minds. And letter writers in the
Keys are not bashful about weighing in with their opinions.
Just looking at letters we've published this week invites dis-
cussion about second-hand smoke, green energy, recycling,
disabled veterans, native plants, TraumaStar, Cheeca Lodge.
A Key Largo dive operator wrote questioning Florida Keys
Community College's decision to offer PADI (Professional
Association of Diving Instructors) open-water courses at
FKCC's Coral Shores branch.
He points out there are five PADI-certified dive shops
already operating in the Upper Keys and they don't appreciate
competition from the publicly funded community college.
Of course, FKCC has offered dive training for years at
its main campus on Stock Island. It's one of those niche cur-
riculums that FKCC has tried to develop to be a good fit in
the Keys.
Courses in marine technology are another example and grew
from early efforts by the college to offer instruction in areas
that private industry defined as important. With all the mari-
nas, boat owners and commercial vessels here, training diesel
mechanics and marine engineers seems like a natural for the
community college.
So why not dive instructor certification? And how about
training operators needed to run sewer plants? Surely we're
going to need lots of those skills as more systems come on line
in the next few years.
When times are tough, we shouldn't be looking at govern-
ment as competition, but rather as a critical partner. The Key
Largo Wastewater Treatment District people get it, so perhaps
dive operators ought to reach out and partner with FKCC.
In these tough times, that may be key to our collective
survival.

Hoteliers don't get that the economy's hurting


EDITOR:
I have just read Mr. James Ludlow's letter
about the high cost of hotels in Key West and
surrounding isles. As a tourist, from New Jersey,
I have to full heartily agree.
We looked at several mid-priced hotel chains
and were horrified about the prices. Nothing
under $100 per night, plus taxes. Yes, Key West
is unique and fun, but not at this time, when the
economy is in the bucket.
Several hotels have a full staff but only two to
three cars parked in their guest lots. Why not
make it $50 to $60 per night, including taxes and


breakfast, and the place would be busting?
Everybody would benefit.
I think next time, it will be Mexico, or maybe
even Cuba for us. At least the devalued dollar is
appreciated a bit more than in Key West. The
hotels spoil it for the restaurants and shops.
It is not the next hurricane that will harm Key
West. It is the greed of the hotel owners and the
politicians who impose these outrageous taxes.
I feel bad for the hard-working support staff
and store owners. How about a revolt?

Lobby Congress for sewer money


EDITOR:
We urgently need at least 200 e-mails in the
next 30 days from Keys business owners and
groups, civic and social leaders, activists and
homeowners to lawmakers urging that money
from the proposed economic stimulus plan go to
Keys sewer projects.
We are all asking for help to get e-mails in
care of the staff of our Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
and senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez to
express our support and urge their assistance to
include U.S. Army Corps of Engineers environ-
mental infrastructure funding and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency's clean-water
revolving program funding.
The Corps has three "mission boxes:" flood
control, navigation and environmental restora-
tion.
Keys sewers are being built with environ-
mental infrastructure funding specifically set
aside by Congress. The Florida Keys Water
Quality Improvement Program sewer construc-
tion dollars have been a line item in the Energy
and Water Appropriations bill. Without this line
item ordering the Army Corps to spend money
for Keys sewer construction, the Office of
Management and Budget would forbid it.
Now, if the new stimulus funding has $3 bil-
lion for Army Corps construction projects, then
OMB will interpret this as being eligible to go

In regard to the Transportation Worker

As obedient minions, shouldn't we be
required, as well, to have security cameras

Gosh, if we could just get rid of those pesky

to the three current "mission boxes" which
does not include environmental infrastructure.
But if the stimulus contains a simple phrase
such as "$3 billion for construction including
$100 million for environmental infrastructure
funding," then the Keys are very much in the
game.
The effort to include environmental infra-
structure is now a much larger national one, so
our Florida delegation will not be alone on this
issue. The Keys also have a number of years of
success on our side, albeit a million or two dol-
lars per year.
So, while "small," we are on the federal
books with an amazing history of success few
Keys residents realize or understand: We are one
of four out of approximately 300 nationally
authorized Corps projects that are currently
being funded.
This means that Key West, Islamorada,
Marathon and Key. Largo could now be very
competitive for Corps stimulus funding since
we're one of the few projects that have actual
"shovels in the ground."
This is why we need our elected representa-
tives in Congress to really get active on this
issue. They need to know that our signed and
federally approved Keys projects totaling $85
million need to be completely funded now.

Manager's $10,000 raise is ill-timed


EDITOR:
I would first like to say that the
village manager of Islamorada has
done a good job. That being said, a 7
percent raise during the greatest eco-
nomic crisis since the Great
Depression is amazing.
Unemployment is over 7 percent,
this country has lost almost 2 million
jobs and our deficit for 2009 will be
over a trillion dollars for the first time
ever. Home values are dropping like
stones, foreclosures are rising and resi-


dents of the Keys are relying more and
more on social services to survive.
The above scenario is pretty grim
but not for the council of Islamorada.
In their infinite wisdom, they felt it
was appropriate to award the manager
a raise of more than $10,000 a year.
Many take offense at the "village
of idiots" nickname and rightfully so,
but as a certain comedian likes to say,
I might not agree but I understand.

Goals are ambitious for the coming year


EDITOR:
Children's memorial tree gardens
have been established throughout the
Keys in municipal passive parks with
the endorsements of Monroe County
and the village of Islamorada. A dedi-
cated section in each park is set aside
for the planting of a tree by bereaved
parents and families who have suf-
fered the unequaled loss of a child,
each marked with a plaque with the
child's name. The tree's growth sym-
bolically represents the future denied.
Every parent and family that dedi-
cates a new tree to a child they have
lost expresses the same emotional
gratitude for the opportunity.
All of our tree gardens have
expanded this year and hopefully they
will be joined in 2009 by the Key
West Botanical Children's Memorial
Tree Garden.
2008 was our fifth anniversary and
our sixth year of participating in the
observance of Children's Memorial
Day on Dec. 14.
Our goals for this coming year are
to install military sections in each tree
garden. We also would like to add a
family get-together covered-dish pic-
nic at each tree garden so families can
meet and get to know each other and,
hopefully, become advisors to our


program. Also, an interest has been
advanced in creating a support group
in each tree garden locality. So we
will have a pretty full calendar of
activities as the year progresses.
We invite you to participate in
expanding and maintaining our pro-
gram as a volunteer, whether you have
lost a child or not. We are a 501(c)3
organization and will accept tax-
deductible donations to obtain the
goals mentioned. Please contact
Marilyn Beyer at 451-1444 for details.

New state attorney promises crackdown


EDITOR:
Generating and maintaining the ideals
necessary for an effective democracy is a
daunting task. Oversight and management
of a government that will not lose sight of
the fact that they are servants of the people
is a task not geared for the faint of heart.
The only instrument protecting the citi-
zenry from the inherent infringements and
excesses of government is the rule of law.
Corrupt politicians and their criminal coun-
terparts thrive and flourish in an environ-
ment where peddled favors, Sunshine Law
violations and crooked political arrange-
ments are the established norm. Abounding
in an environment unabated by any law
enforcement, money and power inevitably
rationalizes the most absurd conduct for
these public office holders. Plundering
through our tax dollars, they egregiously
harm and injure their constituents.
Stating his intention in word and deed,
State Attorney Dennis Ward has come out
of the gate firing a shot across the bow of
those who would malign the citizens of
Monroe County. Criminal conduct will no
longer be tolerated and accepted as a
method of doing business within the gov-
ernment. Inflated salaries dished out by
county commissioners for consultants and
task force advisors as they bankrupted the


place we call home is an offense punishable
by law.
Saying and doing nothing to combat the
tendency of government officials to separate
themselves from the will and general wel-
fare of those they serve has all too often
become standard operating practice in this
county. This unrestrained culture of corrup-
tion unlawfully fleeced-the taxpayers to the
point of insolvency as the quality of our
lives deteriorated and the fragile aquatic
ecosystem in which we live was ravaged.
State Attorney Dennis Ward is a man of
honor, filled with the integrity and determina-
tion to hold everyone to the same legal crite-
rion. No one is above the law. Violating the
public trust taints, damages and impairs all
that occurs within a normal business day in
our lives. It's easy to play it safe with coy and
politically correct rhetoric and do nothing.
Dennis Ward's courage, transparency
and integrity has ratcheted up the expecta-
tions of the electorate. We will no longer
tolerate lackluster, double-dealing prevari-
cators in public life. The sunlight emanating
from Mr. Ward has cleared the deck and
cleansed a once-darkened County
Commission stooped in misconduct and
malfeasance.

County still eyes new EOC


Key West city pool
closes temporarily

The community pool at the
Martin Luther King Jr.
Community Center in Key West
is temporarily closed for repairs.
For the next three to four
weeks, the pool at 300 Catherine
St. will be closed while workers
install a new filtration system,


repair the deck and restore the
inside surface of the pool itself.
Next door, Willie Ward Park
is also closed because it's the

Design firm
is up for
a contract
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A second emergency opera-
tions center might be coming to
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Wednesday, the Monroe
County Commission is expected
to consider approving a contract
with Architects Design Group
Inc. to complete design work for
a new county EOC. The city of
Marathon already operates one of
its own out of the new fire station
at the airport.
The current county EOC is the
Marathon Government Center.
When a hurricane approaches,
the County Commission cham-
bers are transformed into a com-
munications hub for local, state
and federal agencies.
But it's 'inadequate, County
Engineer Dave Koppel said,
because its 150 mph wind rating
is not up to state standards for
that use. It's also below the 18-
foot flood plane required for an


EOC, he said.
"That's OK to survive a hurri-
cane, but if you have emergency
personnel working in a building
through a hurricane, you want to
make sure it's going to be there,"
Koppel said.
Plans for a dedicated county
EOC have been talked about for
years. At one time the suggestion
was that it be incorporated into a
hotel at the airport, but that does-
n't appear to have support.
"We're trying to build a stand-
alone because we do have some
grant money from the state,"
Koppel said, adding the grants
would have to be reimbursed.
Koppel said just over $1 mil-
lion is available in two grants
from the state Department of
Emergency Management. One is
a hazard mitigation grant and the
other is a direct grant for the
building itself.
"This is a grant we've had on
the books for a year or so. We're
trying to proceed and. get this
EOC built that the county has
been needing for quite some time
now," Koppel said.
A request for qualifications


from design firms just recently
went out; 20 firms responded.
The county might still explore
sharing space with the city, but
it's unlikely because the fire-
house isn't built to state EOC
standards, according to Koppel
"It's above and beyond normal
standards because of its use, but
it's still not built to EOC stan-
dards," he said, adding the space
might not accommodate both
governments.
The same goes for the Florida
Keys Mosquito Control District
building at the airport it's not
built to EOC standards and is
below the 18-foot flood plane.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi eliminated the Engineer-
ing Department effective Feb. 13,
meaning any future construction
will fall under the Facilities
Development Department. That
department oversaw construction
of the Murray .E. Nelson
Government and Cultural Center
in Key Largo, which is nearly
complete, and the recently com-
pleted Freeman Justice Center in
Key West, among other buildings.

offices in Winter Park and Fort

Be prepared to pay more at the
pump if the Monroe County
Commission adopts a pair of fuel
taxes when it meets Wednesday.
One is a 5-cent local option
motor fuel tax, while the other is
a ninth-cent local option motor
and special fuel tax. That former
tax is currently 6 cents.
The first is a constitutional gas
tax collected by the county and.
divvied up among itself,
Marathon, Islamorada, Key
Colony Beach and Layton
according to an interlocal agree-
ment. The county keeps all of the
second tax.
Each penny generates about a
quarter million dollars a year,
county officials say.
At the December commission
meeting, County Attorney


Suzanne Hutton said the gas tax
contracts with the cities expire in
July and that the county should
consider renegotiating the
amount of money each munici-
pality receives. The county was
never obligated to share any gas
tax money and many feel the
cities receive too much.
A presentation at that same
December meeting by County
Engineer Dave Koppel outlined
the county's shortfall in funding
to repair its 28 bridges, many of
which are approaching 50 years
of age. Koppel said the county
will likely face a $100 million
total bill over a period of years to
repair all its bridges.
"We were misinformed by
[former County Administrator]
Tom Willi when he told us we had
plenty in reserves and we could
share it with the municipalities,"
Mayor George Neugent said.
He said a tax increase is the
only way to make up the county's
deficit.
"I don't mind sharing it but we


need to take care of our needs and
that's the only way we can do
that."
"We're going to have to do
something and I know people
aren't happy about it, but this is
for a particular fund," Commis-
sioner Kim Wigington said.
Islamorada has budgeted to
receive $160,000 in constitution-
al gas tax money in 2009, while
Marathon has budgeted to receive
$290,000.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro said he is adamant about
not raising taxes and that consti-
tutional gas tax disbursements are
"lopsided" toward the municipal-
ities.
"They say tourists are going to
pay 50 percent, but we have to
pay the other and there's a small
percentage that will pay the
majority" of that half, he said,
referring 'to those who use the
roads frequently for work.
Wednesday's meeting is
scheduled to begin at 9 a.r. at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West.

McPherson: Cut now to prevent shortfall


Kolhage asks
why city staff
didn't plan ahead
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Due to revenues not meeting
projections, the' Key West City
Commission on Wednesday
directed city staff to come up
with a plan for the city to cut 5 to
15 percent of expenditures.
"The message is pretty clear,"
Assistant City Manager Mark
Finigan said. The city can't
count on revenues so they have
to find a way to reduce expendi-
tures. Finigan said to look for a
budget shortfall of $1.2 million
to $1.5 million.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
wondered aloud why city staff
was just now starting to look at
how to prevent a shortfall. "I
personally would've started
October 1," he said.
The budget for fiscal year
2008-09, which began Oct. 1,
projected city revenues at almost
$38 million. City staff compiled
the budget based on actual rev-
enues from previous years but
did not adjust for the internation-
al economic downturn.
"This is something that's
creeping up on us...," Mayor
Morgan McPherson said. "We
need to' be prepared. We need
something that is aggressive


now."
City Manager Jim Scholl
threw out several suggestions on
how to cut expenses including a
four-day workweek, reduced
hours and a continued hiring
freeze.
"We're going to have to look
at alternatives," Scholl said. He
added that the city would have a
better picture of how far rev-
enues would fall by the midpoint
of the next fiscal quarter, some-
time in March.
City revenues are broken
down into five main categories:
property taxes, building permit
fees, a half-cent sales tax, cruise
ship dockage fees and parking
meters.
+ The value of taxable prop-
erty in Key West decreased by
$114 million from July 2008 to
the beginning of the fiscal year
in October. The city says this
equates to a decrease of
$249,000 in budgeted revenue.
In the last fiscal year, the city
made over $14 million in proper-
ty tax revenue.
Building permit revenues
are expected to be $700,000 less
than the budgeted $1.75 million.
In the last fiscal year, the city
took in $1.15 million building
permit fees, but the collapse in
the financial markets, along with
the city's emergency .zoning-in-
progress designation, has caused
a dramatic drop in building.

Citizens' insurance
rates likely to jump

A task force looking to
return Citizens Property
Insurance Corp. to its original
status as an insurance company
of last resort recommended
Thursday that lawmakers
increase homeowner rates by as
much as 20 percent.
The Citizens Property
Insurance Corporation Mission
Review Task Force met in
Jacksonville to finalize its
report due Jan. 31 to the House,
Senate and governor.
"Our task is giving the
Legislature options," said for-
mer Senate President Locke
Burt, one of the task force
members. Key West City


Commissioner Teri Johnston is
also a member.
The state-backed Citizens
was created by the Legislature
in 2002 as an insurer of last
resort for homeowners who
could not get property insur-
ance from other companies, but
it has become the state's largest
insurer with 1.1 million policies
and $412 billion in exposure.
Earlier this month, the task
force voted to recommend that
the Legislature cap Citizens'
annual rate increase at 10 per-
cent on average statewide. It
also suggested an annual cap of
15 percent for any given territo-
ry and 20 percent for any single
policy.
Associated Press


Based on state Department
of Revenue forecasts, the city is
expecting revenues from the
half-cent sales tax to decrease by
some $276,000 to $2.9 million.
In the last fiscal year, the city
received $3.2 million from the
half-cent sales tax.
There is some good news
on the cruise ship front; thanks
to sdme unscheduled arrivals
and diverted ships, revenues are
$153,589 over projections. The


city budgeted cruise ships rev-
enues for this fiscal year at $3.9
million. Last year, cruise ship
revenues for the city added up to
about $4.6 million.
,* Parking meter revenue is
expected to be about $70,000
less than the budgeted amount of
just over $2 million. Last year
the city made $2.01 million from
parking meters revenue.
City employees said they
expect to save $300,000 on pro-


jected fuel expenditures because
prices have dropped since the
budget was compiled.
McPherson said don't count
on it: "Gas is about to shoot
through the roof. Russia is
going to become part of OPEC
[the Organization of Petroleum
Exporting Countries]."
He reiterated the urgency of
coming up with a. plan to cut
costs saying, "You can't wait."

Every dollar counts in these
grim economic times, say Florida
Keys commercial fishermen:
So local commercial-fishing
groups are seeking support for a
moratorium on paying state lob-
ster-trap tag fees of $1 per trap.
"There is just no money in our
business right now," said
Marathon fisherman Bruce Irwin,
a board member of the Florida
Keys Commercial Fishermen's
Association.
"We're hoping for some relief
from the state to save the indus-
try," Irwin said. "I don't know
how many guys are going to
make it to next year."
A. typical independent Keys
fisherman may run from 1,000 to
1,500 traps, Irwin said.
"That's a lot of money for
somebody who's got high over-
head in a time when catches are
down and the prices have-
dropped through the floor," he
said.
The Monroe County chapter
of the Organized Fishermen of
Florida and the Florida Keys


Commercial Fishermen's
Association will ask the Monroe
County Commission for a resolu-
tion supporting the waiver of
trap-tag fees. The commission
meets Wednesday in Key West.
"Our commercial fisheries in
Monroe County need all the help
they can get," Scott Zimmerman,
the association's executive direc-
tor, said in a letter to the commis-
sion.
However the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission cannot waive trap
fees, said agency spokesman Lee
Schlesinger.
"The fees are set out in the
legislation creating the trap-tag
system, so any waiver would
have to go through the Florida
Legislature," he said. "The com-
mission does not have the power
to change the law."
Dockside prices paid to com-
mercial fishermen have plummet-
ed from more than $7 a pound per
whole lobster last year to less
than $4 this year, Irwin said.
"Some guys are getting about
$3.25 per pound, others may get
$3.50 a pound," he said.

Even at that, some local com-
mercial fish houses have days
when they don't buy stone-crab
claws or lobster because their.
freezers are full, he said.
The lobster season runs
through March but commercial
activity has essentially halted,
Irwin said.
Zimmerman said he counted
more than 8,000 trap certificates
advertised for sale by fishermen
downsizing or leaving the indus-
try.
Trap tags were adopted as part
of the state's effort to limit the
number of traps in the lobster
fishery. Fishermen can purchase
only a certain allocation of trap
tags.


State biologists contend that in
general, a total fishery of about
400,000 lobster traps can gener-
ate the same average annual har-
vest of around 4 million lobster.
However, lobster catches have
been below average for several
consecutive seasons, despite a
fishery of 490,000 traps.
Money raised from trap-tag
fees and other assorted fees go
toward administering the tag pro-
gram, plus law enforcement and
research into whether the trap-
reduction plan is working, he
said.
Monroe County residents hold
about half of the 1,300 state per-
mits to fish traps for lobster.


Economic panel looks


at the short term


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com

The newly formed Marathon
Economic Development
Committee has a vision for the
future of the city just not as
far into the future as many were
expecting.
The Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce panel is
expected to outline what mem-
bers called a short-term plan to
boost the city's economy at
Tuesday's City Council meeting.
"Based on the economy, we
started saying, What can we do
in five or six months versus five
or six years?" committee mem-
ber Franco D'Ascanio said. "We
felt it was more important to
make a difference now."
Among the committee's rec-
ommendations:
+ Supporting a local pur-
chasing preference ordinance.
Suspending or reducing
fees associated with the transfer
of building rights.
+ Workshops to develop
clear rules on height variances.
+ A fourth penny bed tax
through the Tourist
Development Council.
Temporarily waiving
impact fees and awarding build-
ing permits to those who are
ready to build.
"We wanted to focus on a
five-month plan to start to have
some impact and put some peo-
ple to work and have a positive


impact on the community," com-
mittee member Brian Schmitt
said. "Right now, most of the
people in business are trying to
make sure they can make payroll
and pay taxes, and they're less
concerned about what Marathon
would be like five to 10 years
from now."
'Some of the recommenda-
tions, like the local purchasing
preference recommendation, are
simply to show support for
nation the City Council has
already taken. Others, like the
building permit recommenda-
tion, are to encourage new con-
struction and thereby new jobs
for residents.
"There are people getting
permits that don't want to build,
so if we can get people who
want to build their permit, we
can put people to work,"
D'Ascanio said.
Workshops on height vari-
ances are a response to the con-
troversy created when the
Planning Commission granted a
variance to Peter Rosasco for his
proposed Hampton Inn. The
variance application was eventu-
ally rescinded.
Rosasco, the city finance
director, is a member of the
Economic Development Com-
mittee but played no role in
adding the issue to the commit-
tee's report, according to
Schmitt.

Get ready to recycle (please)


By SEAN KINNEY

It was in with the new and

Wednesday at the Key West
City Commission meeting.
Commissioners voted to
adopt a new residential recy-


cling ordinance, minus the
somewhat controversial
enforcement and penalty
clauses, and to rehire former
code compliance manager Jim
Young. The vote on the recy-
cling was 6-1 with only Mayor


Morgan McPherson voting
against.
In a surprise move,
Commissioner Bill Verge, who
previously spoke out adamant-
ly against the punitive aspects
of the ordinance, proposed
amendments that kept the edu-

"We're trying to get some-
thing here that's workable,"
SVerge said. "Obviously recy-

effective when it's easy to do."
Verge says before adding
enforcement teeth to the law,
he wants the city to undertake
a one-year education program
including inserts into utility
bills, television and radio ads,
community forums and volun-
teer/resident interfacing.
Then, after that, the commis-
sioners can revisit the prospect
of adding the enforcement

als and households found to

the changes.
"The reason why you gut

Young rehired
In other commission action,
fired code compliance manag-
er Jim Young was.rehired as
part of a settlement with the
city regarding a whistleblow-
er's case brought by Young.
"First of all, I'm grateful,"
Young told the Keynoter. "I
just want to get in there and
review what's been going on
during my absence."
The code compliance
department caught some heat
last year for allowing fines to
accrue and remain outstand-
ing.
"I feel that, especially in
these tight budget and eco-
nomic times...we need to
resolve, if there are any, out-
standing fines as amicably as
possible," said Young.
In his whistleblower's suit
against the city, Young alleged
that then-City Manager Julio
Avael terminated him in 2006
because he exposed cronyism
inside city government.
.Young will receive about
$44,000 in back wages and
pension contributions, plus
some out-of-pocket attorneys
fees, to be negotiated with the
city's attorneys.
With the settlement agree-
ment approved this week,
Young will leave his job at the
county Property Appraiser's
Office on Feb. 6 and come
back to work with the city as
the code compliance manager
on Feb. 9 at a salary of
$60,000 per year.
The next Key West City
Commission meeting is sched-
uled for Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. in Old
City Hall.

Gastesi starts long-range planning


Residents to
get big say in
county's future
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

County Administrator Roman
Gastesi says the people should
help shape their government,
and he aims to make it happen
with what he calls an aggressive
2009 strategic planning initia-
tive.
"For me, it's the most impor-
tant thing we're going to do in


2009," he said. "We applied the
tourniquet for the budget; we're
finishing some capital projects;
now the question is what we're
going to do for the next five
years."
Gastesi's plan includes
polling everyone from residents
and business owners, to county
commissioners and staff, to
identify "critical issues, needs
and concerns."
Gastesi said, "Do they want
to see better Publics Works?
Better Fire Rescue? What is it
that folks think of us?"


"We want the community to
help us formulate county gov-
ernment and put together their
kind of government. We are
going to reach out to all stake-
holders on what they think of us
and what they want us to
become," Gastesi said.
Gastesi plans to use surveys,
questionnaires, focus groups,
open forums and community
meetings to collect the informa-
tion to form a long-range plan
for the county. He says it's criti-
cal to align financial resources
with the "critical needs and
issues and priorities of our stake-
holders."


"We think it will take us four
months to put a list together and
put a plan together for each
department to implement it," he
said. His hope is to have a list of
priorities and a basic plan in
place by March 2010.
Commissioner Kim
Wigington said it's important
taxpayers play a meaningful role
in their government and that
their ideas can be used to priori-
tize the county's budget.
"We have to reset our priori-
ties," she said. "We need to
know how many people want
services delivered .and what
services they'want."


Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro supports Gastesi's
effort, but also cautioned that
certain groups are more outspo-
ken than others.
"I hear from the public all the
time, but sometimes things get
one-sided and you only hear
from one group," he said.
Gastesi said he'll take input
from as many people as possible
to prevent that from happening.
"That's why we've allocated
so much time to it. A strategic
plan is a long-term plan and it's
as good as the plan that gets put
together," he said.


Analog EPIRBs are history


Guard will now
only respond to
digital signals
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A life-saving piece of mar-
itime history goes obsolete Feb. 1.
That's when the U.S. Coast
Guard will stop listening for ana-
log distress signals put out by
older emergency position-indi-
cating radio beacons, or EPIRBs.
The Coast Guard now moni-
tors only the 406-megahertz fre-
quency used by the newer digital
beacons, along with VHF radio
Channel 16.
Older models of EPIRBs
transmitted analog signals at
123.5-MHz or 243-MHz.
Any vessel carrying passen-
gers for hire has been required to
have a digital locator beacon for
the last several years, Coast
Guard Petty Officer Jennifer
Johnson said from the agency's
Miami headquarters.
"The new system is a far, far
better technology," Johnson said.
"It helps take the search out of
search-and-rescue."
Older EPIRBs were prone to
sending out false alert signals if
they were jarred or malfunc-
tioned, she said. "We were get-
ting signals from devices that had
been thrown away," Johnson
said.
"It got to the point where 90 to
95 percent of alerts from the 123s
were false," she said. "In that sit-
uation, the only way for us to


determine if a dall was genuine
was to dispatch a boat or aircraft.
We couldn't take the chance of
leaving somebody out there in
distress."
It was common for the Coast
Guard's Miami communications
office to receive 15 false alerts
from analog EPIRBs in a single
day, she said.
The new "406" beacons put
out a more powerful signal that
includes a unique number that
can be matched with contact reg-
istration information.
"That lets us contact the
owner to confirm that it's an actu-
al emergency and get more infor-
mation like a detailed boat
description," Johnson said.
The new systems also general-
ly broadcast a global-positioning
system location.
Recreational boats are not
required to have EPIRBs but ves-
sels that travel more than 20
miles offshore outside the typ-
ical range of VHF radios often
carry them.
Many newer marine radios
now have an emergency-distress
function that eliminates the need
for nearshore boaters to carry an
EPIRB, said Bert McKemie,
owner of Seamark Electronics in
Marathon.
A VHF radio with a Digital
Selective Calling feature broad-
casts an alert on Channel 70, and
can also broadcast a location if
connected to a boat's GPS, he
said.
"Most boaters who have a
radio with DSC don't generally
need an EPIRB unless they're


really going out into the blue
water," McKemie said.
The BOAT/U.S. organization
rents out digital EPIRBs for
boaters who go on long trips
infrequently.
"Now you can buy [a digital
beacon] for under $500," said
Chris Edmonston of BOAT/U.S-.
"Nobody's even made the [ana-
log beacons] since about 2006."
The Coast Guard warned in
2000 that it would stop monitor-
ing the analog frequencies in
2009, he said.

Bridge going up for good


Burnett wants
Boot Key span
locked upright
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon officials want the
draw span of the dilapidated
Boot Key Bridge locked in the
upright position until it can be
removed altogether.
City Manager Clyde
Burnett says three proposals to
lock it up have been sent to
companies the Florida
Department of Transportation
works with. The City Council
will consider them when it
meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at
the Marathon Government,
Center.
"Until they remove the
span, we might as well open it
so we don't have to have


bridge tenders," Burnett said.
DOT declared the bridge a
hazard and closed it to traffic
of. any kind, even pedestrian,
in December 2007. On April
29, 2008, the council voted
unanimously in favor of a plan
to buy Boot Key for its
appraised value and turn it into
an eco-preserve with no bridge
access.
This past Dec. 5, the city
hosted various state and feder-
al officials in an attempt to get
them on board to purchase the
island outright from its three
owners for preservation.
One of the landowners,
Keys Radio Group owner Joe
Nascone, sued the city on Jan.
5, alleging a taking of his
9.57-acre Boot Key property.
According to an April 2008
appraisal financed by the city,
Nascone's mixed-use property


is valued at $2.42 million with
bridge access and just
$605,000 without.
Among other items on
Tuesday's City Council meet-
ing agenda:
Burnett will suggest rent-
ing an efficiency apartment at
the Jolly Roger Travel Park on
Grassy Key so the city can
establish a fire and rescue
presence there.
The move is expected to
lower the city's overall fire
rating and help lower Grassy
Key residents' fire insurance.
Many pay high premiums
because there is no fire station
within' five miles of their
home.
+ A resolution voicing sup-
port for Marathon Garbage
Service. County Administrator
Roman Gastesi has raised the
possibility of putting the serv-
ice out to bid despite five
years remaining on the con-


tract. The county has the con-
tract and an interlocal agree-
ment with Marathon for trash
hauling.
"We're happy with the serv-
ice we're getting now and
would like to roll it over,"
Burnett said.
+ An ordinance dealing
with local preferences in pur-
chasing.
The proposed ordinance
states any local firm respond-
ing to a request for qualifica-
tions or proposals will be
given "a preference bonus of
10 percent of the overall
points received by such local
business."
A resolution to construct
a service dock and four float-
ing access piers at the City of
Marathon Marina. The docks
will be used for mooring recre-
ational vehicles and transport-
ing dinghies in and out of the
City of Marathon Marina.

Ex-cop shop operator charged with tax evasion


Two felonies,
128 misdemeanors

Key West resident Etta
Elizabeth Bernhard was arrested
earlier this week after state
Department of Revenue investi-
gators alleged she bilked the state
out of over $24,000 in sales tax.
Bernhard's arrest came on the
heels of former Key West Police

Allen Disgdiertt surrendering
himself on similar charges on
Jan. 4.
The pair conducted business

City launches cleanup effort


Neighborhoods
encouraged to
work together
By RYAN McCARTHY
rrfccarthy@keynoter.com

A pair of Marathon residents'
efforts to clean up areas near their
home have led a Marathon city
councilman to call for the cre-
ation of a citywide neighborhood
improvement plan.
Councilman Dick Ramsay
told the Keynoter he was inspired
when retired physician Dan Zieg
approached the city asking for
supplies to clean up the Coco
Plum area, as well as by
Sombrero Boulevard resident
Nancy Martin, who frequently
walks that road and collects
garbage.
"If we set up something to
assist them, then maybe it would
help," Ramsay said. He called for
a $2,500 starting budget that
could be used to help neighbor-
hoods with materials.
"That extends into the city
supplying dumpsters on request
in different neighborhoods, and
we are looking for. people to
come forward and represent
whatever street you want and do
it," Ramsay said.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
appointed Land Steward Patti
Childress as the staffer who will
head the effort to get the program
started. Childress recently led a
group of volunteers in cleaning
the corner of Guava Avenue and
Morton Street on Grassy Key of
invasive exotic species and trash.
The corner is a major intersection


on- the island.
Childress secured a $20,000
grant from the Department of
Environmental Protection's
Florida Coastal Management
Program to help repair damage to
the city's 40 acres of Grass Key
property purchased with Florida
Forever money. The city will
match that money with dona-
tions, volunteer time and cash.
Ramsay's fellow council
members are all on board with his
neighborhood improvement plan.
That includes several who decid-
ed to forgo a trip to Washington,
D.C., to meet with the city's fed-
eral lobbyist and use that money
instead to fund his program.
"It's a good idea. Marathon

DACs approve 4th penny


Only Lower Keys
and Marathon-
not unanimous
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

All five district advisory com-
mittees of the Tourist Develop-
ment Council approved the addi-
tion of a fourth penny tax this
week, with only three of the 42
DAC members present at the
meetings voting "no."
The five DACs met in their
respective districts on Tuesday
and Wednesday, and heard from
Harold Wheeler, director of the
TDC, who proposed the fourth
penny, and also Jodi Weinhofer,
head of the Lodging Association
of the Florida Keys and Key West,
and a representative from Tinsley
Advertising, the Miami advertis-
ing firm that produces print and
television ads for the TDC.
"I was willing to be con-
vinced, if anybody could stand up
and tell me why this was a good
idea right now. But nobody con-
vinced me," said Marilyn
Tempest of Wednesday's DAC
III meeting in Marathon.
Tempest, a former Marathon city
councilwoman, was one of the
two members of DAC III who
voted "no" on the fourth penny,
which would raise to 12.5 percent
the total tax on hotel rooms in the
Florida Keys.
"It increases the cost at a time


when we should be more compet-
itive," said Tempest.
Tempest told the Keynoter that
she is happy to go along with the
majority, if an additional tax is
what the majority wants.
"If the industry feels that's the
way to go, I'm not going to tell
them that they're breaking all the
rules of economics and capital
markets. Even though they are,"
she told the Keynoter.
The fourth penny, which
would add to the three pennies
per dollar levied on every hotel
room in the county, was proposed
by Wheeler in a press release sent
to the media late last year. This
week was the first time the indi-
vidual members of the district
advisory committees had taken
up the proposal.
Also voting "no" at the
Marathon meeting on Wednesday
morning was Lynda Berrigan.
Berrigan said she voted "no"
after hearing from people in
Marathon that an increase in the
tax was not "an acceptable course
of action."
The TDC is projecting that the
fourth penny, if approved by the
County Commission, would raise
an additional $4.2 million to $4.5
million, which would be used to
promote tourism for the individ-
ual districts. The proposal to
increase the tax has the support of
all five chambers of commerce in
the Keys, and also the Key West
Innkeeper's Association and the

Key West Business Guild.
Bob Moir, the chairman of
DAC III and the owner of three
hotels on Grassy Key, supports
the additional fourth penny.
"We desperately need the
advertising.., not only for
Marathon, but all of the Keys," he
said.
"Certainly nobody wants to
add an additional 1 percent onto
their prices. However, the addi-
tional advertising is crucial," he
said, summing up his conversa-
tions with other hoteliers in
Marathon. "It's not just a general

Moir says his hotels saw a
decrease in business in the fall,

December. He says a 12.5 per-

on rooms.

Economic doldrums slow,
but don't sink, Acura Key West


Associated Press

The global economic crisis
dramatically reduced the num-
ber of sailboats at Acura Key
West Race Week, which begin
Monday off the Florida Keys.
But there was still a good field
of 155 (down 40 percent com-
pared to last year's fleet of 262).
Event director Peter Craig
emphasized that the 22-year-old
tradition of January fleet sailing
in Key West continues unlike
many other regattas around the
world that have been canceled
because of fiscal doldrums.
He also pointed to the num-
ber of the sport's marquee
sailors who registered to com-
pete in the five-day event, which


featured nine races in 13 differ-

Silverstein is best known as
an author of children's books
like "The Giving Tree," which
he wrote in 1964. But in this
production, called "The Outer
Shel," you'll find another side to
Silverstein.
"The Outer Shel" is a collec-
tion of zany and very adult
works, filled with twisted humor
and biting wit, that will remind
those in the audience that the
author and creative genius first
became nationally recognized
for his satirical and provocative
cartoons which appeared in
every issue of Playboy magazine
from the early '50s through the
mid-'70s. "The Outer Shel" also
includes some of Silverstein's
music.
The production features an
all-star cast including George

Zebini


Family


Circus

By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@ keynoter.com


On Saturday, Jan. 24, in the
early morning, an enormous
blue and yellow tent will be
erected at the Key Largo
Community Park, with Camelot
flags flapping up top, and ani-
mals not normally seen in the
Keys milling about on the
grounds: camels, ponies, a buf-
falo!
A circus is coming to the
Upper Keys on Saturday for the
first time in more than 15 years,
to stage two shows, at 1 p.m. at
7 p.m., with a midget, perform-
ing dogs, aerialists, trained
Egyptian camels, and, of
course, clowns.
The Zerbini Family Circus is
coming here in the wee hours of
the morning on Saturday from
Myakka City, Fla., where the
circus has its winter home.
The circus was founded in
1994 by French-born circus per-
former Alain Zerbini, whose
father had a circus in Europe,
and whose son, Julian, is now
the eighth generation in his
family to perform in a circus.
Zerbini founded the circus
after he fell 30 feet while per-
forming with The Shrine Circus
in Flint, Mich.in 1994.
"1 broke all my feet and
something in my back and
could do no more high wire,"
he told the Keynoter this week.
Zerbini will lead his circus
to the Keys this weekend, with
the'two shows on Saturday in
Key Largo, and a show (not
open to the public) at the naval
base in Key West on Sunday.


r~i


Performers with the Zerbini Family Circus include a three-foot
tall midget.


The two shows in the Upper
Keys are fundraisers for the
Kiwanis Club and the YMCA.
Tickets are $10 per person, and
free for children under 3, and


can be purchased at the Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce
Visitor Center or at the door
before the shows.

The day's other attractions
are to include children's crafts

The area's Bahamian her-
itage is a strong one, and keep-
ing the cultural and historical

alive is an important mission at
Crane Point. In the 1890s,
George and Olivia Adderley
and a small group of Bahamians
sailed to the Keys from the
Bahamas. After a few years in
the Upper Keys, the Adderleys
bought 32 acres on Key Vaca at
what is now Crane Point
Hammock. The home that
George Adderley built by hand
- the Keys' oldest house out-
side of Key West still stands
and is to be open for self-guid-
ed exploration during the festi-
val.
Admission to the festival is
$10 for adults for a one-day
ticket for Saturday or Sunday,
and $15 for adults for a two-day
weekend ticket. Children ages
6-12 will be admitted for $5 per
child per day, with children
younger than 6 admitted free of
charge.
Crane Point Hammock and
Museum is at mile marker 50

Pirate puppet
rock opera Jan. 25
In what may be its most off-
the-wall show in years,
Islamorada Community
Entertainment is bringing
Jollyship the Wiz-Bang to
Founders Park on Jan. 25 for
an 8 p.m. performance.
This theater troupe from
Brooklyn combines puppets,
pirates, rock and roll, and out-
rageous comedy into legendary
live performances.
The show has played to rave
reviews and sold out crowds
from Manhattan to Bangkok,


but is not suitable for children.
Jollyship the Wiz-Bang was
conceived in Brooklyn in 2002
by playwright Nick Jones and
composer Raja Azar. The two
men created a musical sea saga
about pirates searching for the
elusive "Party Island, where
rum flows down saltwater taffy
mountains."
Tickets are $15 and can be
purchased at the door, cash or
check only. The performance
will be in the TIB
Amphitheater in Founders
Park, at mile marker 87 in
Islamorada. Bring blankets or
lawn chairs. For more informa-
tion go to www.keysice.com.

Dolphins



advance



over ICS


Landry scores
in double OT
for the victory
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


It took 97 minutes on a cold
and windy field Tuesday, but
Marathon High School
advanced to the District 16-2A
championship game with a 1-0
win over rival Island Christian
School.
The Dolphins fired shot after
shot against the Eagles, but were
unable to score thanks to a stel-
lar performance by goalie
Kaylin Wyatt and the Island
Christian defense.
Eighth-grader Katie Landry
finally ended the drama by chip-
ping a rebound to her own point
blank shot over Wyatt's head for
the game-winning goal.
Landry dribbled in and made


a move to get past the Island
Christian sweeper and had a
point blank shot from around 12
yards out. Wyatt made the save,
but the rebound bounced around
and Landry was able to get a
foot on it for the win.
"As the game wore on, we as
a team got tighter and tighter
instead of relaxing and letting
the game come to us," Marathon
coach Lynn Landry said of his
team's scoring struggles. "We
had a couple of extra passes we
could have made and rushed a
few more shots than we normal-
ly do.
Island Christian played
essentially the same strategy as
when the two teams played to a
tie Dec. 18 defense.
"Our girls pretty much played
defense the entire game, but they
were everywhere," coach Cheryl

On Tuesday afternoon, Key
West freshman forward .Shaniya
Watson's all-around performance
glowed as brightly as the shiny
wood floor of the upstairs gym at
the new Westland Hialeah High
School.
Playing all five positions, she
had nine points, 17 rebounds
(only two fewer than she had
hauled down in her previous
game), seven blocked shots and
six steals as the Conch girls, in
the midst of their greatest basket-
ball season in more than a decade,
defeated Westland. 65-38. in a


District 16-4A game.
Watson's coach, Glenn Hayes
Sr., who is also her cousin and
godfather, calls her the most tal-
ented girl player he has ever seen
in Monroe County.
"She has exceeded my expec-
tations and then some," he
said, before ticking off her quali-
ties:
"She's a leader on the court -
the other girls like for her to be in
the game. Although she's 5-11,
she sees the floor like a point
guard. She gets the ball to the'per-

Coral Shores and
Marathon High School
played even soccer for the
last 79 minutes but an early
Hurricane goal made the dif-
ference Thursday in
Tavernier.
"We scored in the first
minute, and that's the way it
stayed," said Coral Shores
head coach Jorge Bosque.
Hurricane striker Mike
Hampson scored the game-
winner in the 1-0 win that
ended. Coral Shores' regular
season. The team now heads
into this week's District 16-
3A Tournament in Tavernier.
"That's a good way to


close out the season,"
Bosque said. "It never hurts
to go into the tournament
with a win behind you."
Marathon's Dolphins (5-
10-1) beat the Canes in the
season's first meeting.
"This time we moved
[Hampson] up top, after
using him at midfield and
defense last time," Bosque
said. "We've had to replace a
lot of our players but "hee
guys communicated very
well on the field."
Just after the start, Coral
Shores pushed toward the
Marathon net.
Hampson claimed a loose
ball from a scramble in the
middle of the field, and
launched a kick from about
30 yards.
The ball sailed just over

Quick strikes carry Conchs


Key West
drops Dolphins
in 7-2 contest
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It was cold and windy
Tuesday evening at Tommy
Roberts Memorial Stadium,
and there were only about 50
shivering fans in the stands.
The setting seemed unlikely to
inspire the Key West High
School boys soccer team to
break out of its scoring dol-
drums but that's what the
Conchs did in a 7-2 victory
over Marathon.
IFtdidn't start that promis-
ing for Key West.
Matt DeFillips, after get-
ting tripped in the box, shot a
penalty kick past keeper Jeff


Wright to give the Dolphins a
1-0 lead less than five minutes
into the game.
The Conchs, meanwhile,
couldn't find the net, causing
coach Jason Clifford, mindful
of his team's season output of
less than two goals a game, to
say, "This is our season right
here it'll end up, 1-1."
Freshman Elec Fils-Aime
did make it 1-1 halfway
through the half, and then
Monnel Azard made it 2-1
with 10 minutes on the clock.
Five minutes later, Zach
Harden, who turned 17
Tuesday, scored, and the
Conchs went into the locker
room with a 3-1 halftime lead.
Early in the second half, the
Conchs continued to domi-
nate, much to the delight of
former players such as Alex

An onrushing Justin
Hamilton scored after Cale
Hartle's hard shot rebounded
off Dolphin keeper Anthony
D'Ascanio. Erik Lowe scored
from close range. Alfonso
Arteaga headed in a corner
kick from Jonathon Wright.
And the Conchs were up, 6-
2, with six minutes left.
DeFillips then made his
second penalty kick before
Justin Martin closed the scor-
ing for the Conchs with the
longest shot of the night.
"Every corner kick, they
won," Marathon coach Jim
Murphy said later. "They were
more physical than us, but it's
good to play a game like this
before the district tourna-
ment."
Clifford, braced against the
cold with only a T-shirt and
shorts, said, "We simplified
what we have been doing.
Now, things are a bit more
clear to the younger, inexperi-
enced players so execution
comes more frequently."
DeFillips drew Clifford's
praise. "He is easily their best
player," he said. "He would be
a starter on any team. I would
love to have him move to Key
West."
Wednesday afternoon, the
Conchs traveled to Miami and
lost to Gulliver Prep, 4-3. Fils-
Aime, whose goal against
Marathon was his first of the
season, scored all three against
the Raiders. Key West is 10-
13-3.

"Our girls pretty much
played defense the entire
game, but they were every-
where," coach Cheryl Yost
said. "Kaylin Wyatt in goal
made some major saves. I
can't say how. many, but she
had at least six or seven that
prevented a goal."
The Eagles mustered very
little offense, save the occa-
sional run down the field and a
scattered shot on goal. But
their defensive strategy almost
worked to perfection; another
three minutes and the game
would have been decided by a
shootout.
Yost said she was proud of
her team's performance and
that the team had a great year.
The Eagles finished 8-5-2 and
graduate just one senior -
Kate DuPre from a very
young roster.


"That was the way to go
out. Our girls. had fun and
played a great game," Yost
said. "Everything about it was
enjoyable except for the cold.
That was really nasty."
The win sets up a champi-
onship rematch from a year
ago with perennial district
power Palmer Trinity School
and ensures the Dolphins will
advance to regionals. Landry
said he's well aware of the
Dolphins' struggles with the
Falcons.
"I think we play a little bit
better at home and a little
more confident," Landry said.
"The girls aren't ready for the
season to end and it would be
nice if we beat Palmer and
host a regional game."
Marathon (9-6-2) was
scheduled to play Palmer
Trinity Friday night. Results
were not available at press
time.

Canes travel to Marathon .t..i


Basketball team
splits a pair
the past week
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' boys basketball
Hurricanes travel south to
Marathon High School on
Monday to start a three-game
road tour that ends the regular
season.
The Canes (5-8) split two
games this week, winning a 55-
54 game from Barrington
Christian in Florida City before
taking it on the chin at home from
Belen Jesuit, 72-44.
Belen (15-6), a Class 4A club,
ran out to a 38-20 lead by half-
time Thursday, then added 10
points to the margin heading into
the fourth.
"Our average on defense is


holding teams to about 10 points
a quarter but we weren't able to
slow [Belen] much," associate
coach Rob Stroup said after the
loss at home.
Point guard Zack Stroup led
the Canes with 16 points, while
forward Norman Dixon scored
eight. Center Kyle Sikora scored
seven points and made six
blocks.
Coach Patrick Meyers' staff
will stress the lessons of the one-
point comeback win over
Barrington on Jan. 16.
"We trailed for most of the
game before we outscored them
by 12 points in the fourth,"
Stroup said.
Coral Shores rallied to take a
lead before Barrington scored to
tie the game with three seconds
left.
The Canes raced down the
court and Dixon was fouled on
his shot at the buzzer. The senior,


who scored nine of his 14 points
in the fourth, hit for the first free
throw to end the game.
Zack Stroup scored nine of the
Canes' 15 points in the third quar-
ter, and closed with 14. Sikora
also hit double figures with 12
points.
Rick Rodriguez scored seven
points, while Len Troncoso and
Ryan Bush each scored four.
"Our defense has been pretty
consistent all season but we still-
need to work on the offense,"
coach Stroup said.
Results of Friday's home
finale against Calusa Prep were
pending at press time.
After Monday's 6:30 p.m. var-
sity game at Marathon, the
Hurricanes travel to Florida
Christian on Wednesday and to
Miami Country Day for the Feb.
4 regular-season finale.
Coral Shores' junior varsity
plays the Island Christian varsity
at 6 p.m. Friday at Coral Shores.


Dolphin boys split a pair


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
boys basketball team split a pair
of games last week against
Florida Christian School and
Palmer Trinity School.
The Dolphins defeated the
Patriots Tuesday, 52-45, after
dropping a tight district contest
Friday against the Falcons, 62-
58.
Coach Kevin Freeman said
despite the team's 6-10 record,
it's anyone's ballgame when the
district tournament rolls around.
"We're a young team and
we'll keep fighting. No matter
where you finish you'll have a
chance. If we play our game we
can beat any given team on any
day in this district," Freeman
said.
The Dolphins are now 1-6 in
District 16 play.
On Tuesday, Marathon beat
the Patriots despite playing what
Freeman said was far from the
team's best basketball. The
Patriots took advantage of a
Dolphins zone in the second
half and scored a number of
easy baskets, he said.
"We didn't do all the little
things to dominate. We kept
making mistakes; we cut down


on the turnovers, but [played]
poor defense in the second
half," he said.
Nonetheless, the Dolphins
were tied at 10-10 after the first
quarter and led 20-19 at the half.
Seven Dolphins scored in the
third quarter, led by freshman
Dwayne Ellis' five points, as the
Dolphins opened up a 37-32
lead.
Sophomore Nate Kitchen
scored six points in the fourth
quarter to help offset the loss of
junior center Travis Leachman
for most of the fourth quarter to
foul trouble. Leachman came
back late to score four points in
the quarter and the Dolphins
made 5 of 7 free throws to seal
the victory.
On Friday, Freeman said the
Dolphins played well, but were
unable to pull out the victory in
the fourth quarter. The Dolphins
trailed 16-9 in the first quarter,
but led 30-29 at halftime.
Marathon led 44-40 after
three quarters.
"We were playing really,
really good basketball, the best
we played all year," Freeman
said. "There was a lot of emo-
tion and picking each other up."
But the Falcons made an


early run and took a five-point
lead early in the fourth quarter.
Marathon struggled to stop
Palmer's big man, who made
three three-point shots to help
extend their lead.
The Dolphins had four dou-
ble-figure scorers against the
Falcons: Ellis with 12 and
Leachman, Kitchen and
Kenyatta Scott with 10 each.
Leachman also had nine
rebounds and a career high eight
blocked shots.

Coral Shores' girls survived
a harrowing ordeal Tuesday .to
advance to the District 16-3A


soccer championship game.
Results of the Friday match
against longtime nemesis
Gulliver Prep were pending at
press time.
Tuesday's 3-1 semifinal
victory over tournament host
Archbishop Carroll guaranteed

the district's top two teams.
Coral Shores requested
additional security for Friday's
return to Archbishop Carroll,
after some Bulldog fans started
harassing he Canes when Coral
Shores took the lead over the
home team.
"It got really nasty," said
Coral Shores coach Arthur
Paterson. "It almost turned
into a melee. Eventually cooler
heads prevailed."
Taunts from directly behind
the Hurricane bench included


racial slurs, said Paterson and
team players.
The hostile atmosphere may
have contributed to a lacklus-
ter performance on the field,
said the coach.
S"It was a closer game than
we wanted," he said. "It may
have been our worst game of
the season, but maybe now
we've got that one bad game
out of the way. We need to
buckle down at forward and
midfield."
Freshman striker Jasmine


Paterson scored all three goals
to eliminate Carroll.
Goalkeeper Amber
Spaulding had only one lapse,
on a tough shot made more dif-
ficult by strong winds.
Gulliver dispatched
Ransom Everglades, 6-0, in the
other semifinal.
"That sets up a really good
matchup for the champi-
onship," Paterson said.
"Hopefully we can just play
soccer without all that other
stuff."

Lady Conchs


reach regional


Soccer team
gets OT win
against Mater
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Looking back on the' Key
West High School's 2-1 over-
time soccer victory over Mater
Academy in a semifinal game of
the District 16-4A tournament
Tuesday night in Miami, coach
Scott Paul said, "We're not a
team of super stars, but we did
what we're capable of doing."
The victory ensured the
Conchs of reaching the regional
tournament.
Friday night, they played St.
Brendan in the district title game
that was completed too late to be
included in today's paper.
Playing a Mater team it had


defeated twice in the regular
season by a combined score of
12-0, the Conchs found them-
selves in a battle that needed to
be won to keep the season alive.
It finally ended five minutes into
overtime when Jasmine Jones
finished a drive by Krizzie
Menez by tapping the ball into
the net.
Key West to6k a 1-0 lead in
the second half on a tap-in by
Jennifer Barcenas off a cross
kick, but the Lions scored to
force the overtime.
The Conchs (11-9-1 overall)
will play a regional quarterfinal
game at 7 p.m. Thursday. If they
are district champions, they will
play at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium against
Cardinal Gibbons or Archbishop
McCarthy.

son who needs it. If we need a
steal, she gets a steal. If we
need two points, she knows she
has to take the shot.
"And she's a pleasure to
work with a real sweet per-
son, very unselfish."
Tuesday's game didn't
exclusively belong to Watson.
Guard Chelsea Storr scored
20 points, her 10th consecutive
game with 20 or more; Alicia
Arazolla, who alternates
aggressive drives to the basket
with 3-point set shots
unleashed with two hands, had
16 points; Ja'Taure Mathis
scored nine, Kim Jones four,
Taryn Weller three.and Daphne
Barnett and Fiorello Bravo two
each.
It was the fifth consecutive
victory for the Conchs, who are
13-3 overall and 7-1 in the dis-
trict.
