Country star buys

Key West mansion


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynqter.com


The Keys' rumor mill has
been churning out reports that
country music superstar Kenny
Chesney bought a house in Key
West and it looks like it's true.
According to records from
the Monroe County Clerk of the
Court's Web site dated Jan. 20, a
company called Falcon 200 Inc.,
presumably acting on Chesney's
behalf, purchased the house for
$5.7 million from previous own-
ers Nicholas and Susan
Trivisonno.
It just so happens that


Chesney
owns a 12-
passenger
Falcon 200
jet made by
Dassault
Aviation.
Then, on
Tuesday
CHESNEY morning, a
United Parcel
Service delivery notice
addressed to Kenny Chesney
was seen sticking out of the gate

Homeless



numbers



growing


But HigherLove
in Marathon is
closing its doors
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

The board of directors for the
only center providing meals and
temporary shelter for Marathon's
homeless hag voted to close
effective March 1, citing finan-
cial woes and its director's poor
health as the reasons.
But evidence shows home-
lessness is on the rise locally -
especially among families with
children so some community
members say they are determined
to fill the upcoming void caused
by the HigherLove Mission's clo-


sure, and they are organizing
what they call a Summit on the
Homeless to develop a coordinat-
ed plan.
Organizer Sandy Saylor said
the summit is open to the public
and will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday
at St. Columba Episcopal
Church, 451 52nd St. Those
attending are asked to bring, a
potluck dish to share along
with a few of their best ideas.
"Homelessness is our problem
whether we want to admit it or
not," Saylor said. "We're reach-
ing out to everyone including res-
idents, the sheriff, the churches
and all the nonprofits that are
working with the homeless..

Seagrass damage

New studies

more limits
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Florida Bay has taken a beat-
ing from boaters over the
decades, say new studies by
Everglades National Park staff.
A study on the extent and
location of damage caused by


boat propellers to the bay bottom
concludes "seagrass scarring is
widespread and increasing."
Park officials plan to meet
with local residents in a coalition
of Florida Bay user groups to out-
line the studies' findings this
week.
Jim Trice, an avid Islamorada
recreational angler, believes he
knows what to expect.

Numbers likely to increase


HOMELESS / From I

Anyone in the community who
cares about the issue is invited."
HigherLove, behind the
Furniture Now! store at 1669
Overseas Highway, serves free
meals to homeless people several
days each week and provides
transitional and emergency shel-
ter. It also links people with local
organizations offering health care
and addiction services. Director
Deborah Maletic said the pend-
ing closure of the mission she and
her husband founded in 1999 is
due to budget shortfalls and her
own "serious health issues."
"Nothing would make me
happier than to know that the
service will continue," Maletic
said. "There are a lot of people
who need help."
And that group is growing,
according to those tracking
homelessness in the county.
Wendy Coles of the
Southernmost Homeless
Assistance League said a count
done in 2007 indicated there were


1,121 homeless people in the
Keys, with more than 100 living
without shelter in the Middle
Keys. A new census was to be
conducted Tuesday and but based
upon what she has seen lately, she
predicts those numbers will
increase.
"There is a growing popula-
tion of children and families
across the Keys who are without
homes," Coles said. "In fact,
there has been a 65 percent
increase in the number of chil-
dren in our school system who
are homeless."
Frances England, the contact
for homeless student services for
Monroe County schools, con-
firmed that 211 homeless chil-
dren attend district schools.
And the Rev. Stephen
Braddock, president of Florida
Keys Outreach Coalition for the
Homeless, said the temporary
shelter on Stock Island had to
turn people away recently
because it was full.
He said he has seen "dramatic
increases" in the numbers of peo-
ple including working fami-


lies with children seeking help
getting food and personal items,
including diapers.
"We've jnst seen the tip of the
iceberg," Braddock said. "With
recent decreases in funding and
also in private giving, the
response needs to be an enhanced
level of cooperation and consoli-
dation between organizations and
groups so we can make the most
of these scarce resources."
The Rev. Debra Maconaughey
of St. Columba said that's why
her church -offered to host
Thursday's summit. She said that
before she moved to the Keys,
she worked as part of a successful
coalition formed to help home-
less people in the Washington,
D.C., area. She believes the same
sort of team approach to address-
ing homelessness can be
achieved in Marathon.
"No one agency or organiza-
tion or church or person can do
this alone," Maconaughey said.
"But if everyone does their own
little part, it will be fantastic."
To RSVP for the summit, call
St. Columba at 743-6412.


'Serious damage being done'


SEAGRASS / From 1

the business world," said Trice, a
business consultant. "It sounds
like they're preparing us for some
strong out-of-the-chute measures,
like [boat] management zones
and poling-only zones."
Fishing guides and anglers
who regularly use the bay's shal-
low waters are wary of previous
proposals that suggested closing
large areas to motorized boats.
"There are a lot of ways to
address the problems without
resorting to closures," Trice said.
Others say the park needs to
get serious about protecting
Florida Bay waters off the Upper
Keys that lie within the
Everglades National Park.
"There is serious damage
being done out there," Jerry
Lorenz of the Audubon Research
Center said at a November work-
shop on bay issues. "It's become
desperate. We need to do some-
thing baywide."
The new studies posted on the
Everglades Web site detail the
extent and location of propeller
scarring, and chart the increasing
use of Florida Bay waters..
"Dense scarring [is] found in


shallow depths, near all naviga-
tional channels, and around areas
most heavily used by boaters,"
reads a study.
Trice said the studies concen-
trate on areas known to have suf-
fered from errant boaters.
"They're going to show us
that people run across shallow
areas like Cross Bank," he said.
"Everybody knows about that
kind of stuff. We've been trying
for 15 years to get people to stop
using these shallow cuts and
channels."
A scarring study outlines
some possible management
measures; including mandatory
boater education and manage-
ment zones, which could restrict
motorized vessels from enter
shallow areas.
"Limiting access to an area
completely or to all motorized
watercraft is likely to be the most
effective option to reduce sea-
grass scarring and would be rela-
tively easy to enforce," says a
section of the study, "but these
regulations would cause the most
impact on existing users of
Florida Bay. Complete closures
should only be implemented if
less restrictive ,strategies prove
unsuccessful...." .. ...

House built in 1898


CHESNEY / From 7

at 425 Caroline St. in Old Town,
just off Duval Street.
It's not surprising that the 40-
year-old Chesney, winner of four
consecutive Academy of Country
Music Entertainer of the Year
Awards, would set up shop in
Key West.
In March 2007, Chesney
extended his "Keg in the Closet"
tour to include two unan-
nounced shows in Key West, at
the Hog's Breath Saloon and
Margaritaville, and a year later,
he performed to a more-than-
packed house for nearly five
hours at Sloppy Joe's. He's also
been spotted eating dinner with
his band at The Island Fish
Company in Marathon.
This past weekend, there
were alleged spottings of
Chesney zipping around Old
Town Key West on his bicycle.
The buzz culminated in specula-
tion that Chesney might appear
at the grand opening of Lazy
Lakes Camping and RV Resort
on Sugarloaf Key, where 2008
CMA Musician of the Year Mac'
McAnally was playing. Chesney
and McAnally collaborated on
the song "Down the Road."
The Caroline Street house is
one of Key West's most notable
properties. Called the W. Hunt
Harris House, the five-bedroom,
7.5-bath home was constructed
in 1898.
The nearly 7,000 square feet
of living space includes 13-foot
ceilings, a top-of-the-line cook's
kitchen and a 1,500-bottle cus-
tom wine room capable of run-
ning off generator power.

includes more living area and a
private gym. The spacious
grounds boast a 42-by-18-foot
heated swimming pool and a
wet bar complete with icemaker,
granite countertops and teak
cabinetry.
Key West real estate broker
Lynn Kaufelt listed the house
for just over $6 million. Kaufelt,
when asked by the Keynoter,
denied that Chesney had pur-
chased br was in the process of
purchasing the house.
Chesney rocketed to stardom
following the 2004 debut of his
first major-label album "In My
Wildest Dreams." Since then, he
has released nine other albums,
the most recent being "Lucky
Old Sun" in 2008.

"There are no words to

tragedy," said Ocean Reef
President Raymond Dillon, who
is helping to organize donations
to memorial and funeral funds.
Mary Meredith has been a
Serrano client for 11 years.
"Hector is a sweet man who
loves his family so much. He
adores his children and always
talks about them," she said. "He

horrendous tragedy."
The Serrano family minivan
was stopped at a South Dixie
Highway traffic light before
dawn Sunday. A Trailblazer
sport utility vehicle slammed
into the back of the minivan,
killing all three children in the

Hector Serrano did not want

Miami teen dies,
in Key Largo crash

A Miami teenager died
Sunday morning when the 2008
Honda she was driving crashed
on Card Sound Road in Key
Largo.
Caristina Caries was driving
north around 8:20 a.m. when,
for unknown reasons, she trav-

Homestead. Esmeralda, the out-
going middle child, would have
turned 8 on Monday. Their
father suffered a broken arm.
Gabriel Delrisco, 40, driver
of the vehicle that struck the

DUI conviction and more than a
dozen other traffic citations,
according to reports. His driver's
license was valid at the time of
the crash.
Delrisco was taken for treat-
ment of injuries, and blood was
taken for an alcohol-level check.
Charges are pending.
Online searches of Monroe
County arrest and traffic records
do not show that Delrisco was

Thief

reels in

donated

boat

The Whaler was
raffle prize
for fundraiser
A $15,000 boat package
being raffled off to benefit the
Mariners Hospital Foundation
was reported stolen Friday.
The theft of the 2008
Boston Whaler, its trailer and a
40 horse power motor was
reported at 6 p.m. Friday. The
discovery that it was gone
came when a woman went to
the hospital to buy a $100 raf-
fle ticket. The boat, donated by
Caribee Boat Sales in
Islamorada, was parked in
grass near U.S. I in front of the
hospital, mile marker 91. It
was chained to a pole.
A maintenance employee
told Deputy Luis Gomez from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office that he had gone to
work at 7:30 a.m. and found
the chain and lock laying in the
grass. He said he didn't think
anything about it because he
assumed someone had won the
boat, Deputy Becky Herrin
said.
The vessel is a Boston
Whaler special edition, 13 feet
3 inches long, with a- white
exterior with the name Boston
Whaler in red lettering; it has a
blue interior with white cush-
ioned seats and a black
Mercury outboard motor.
Anyone with information
about the theft should call the
Sheriff's Office. Tipsters who
want to remain anonymous can
contact Crime Stoppers of the
Florida Keys. If a tip leads to
an arrest in the case, the tipster
would be eligible for a cash
reward. The hotline is (800)

Keys Opinion


Where were the judges

to protect the innocent?-

Sometimes reading police reports triggers a sense of out-
rage that's hard to suppress, even though journalists are
expected to remain neutral in reporting what happened.
However, the tragic death of three children in south Miami-
Dade, blamed on a 40-year-old driver with a wretched record
of traffic violations, brings home the serious need to crack
down on bad drivers.
The grieving father of those kids, Hector Serrano, works at
Ocean Reef in North Key Largo and daily puts himself at risk
on a heavily traveled, accident prone stretch of Card Sound
Road.
Drivers impaired by alcohol and going too fast often end up
in the mangroves because they hit a bridge approach going
-too fast. And those are the lucky ones who don't cross the
center line and plow head-on into an unsuspecting driver
causing death or injury.
On Sunday, Monroe County Sheriff's Office Deputy Joel
Slough wound up intercepting a speeding driver who was
seen weaving across traffic lanes and narrowly missed a
head-on with another police car traveling north on U.S. 1.
After failing all roadside sobriety tests, 45-year-old
Francisco Aparicio of Deerfield Beach was arrested and
charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless
driving and driving with no license.
And here's the worst part Aparicio told the arresting offi-
cer he's never had a driver's license. So there was no way to
check his driving record to see if he's a repeat offender.
We don't have to guess about the Miami-Dade driver
involved in Sunday's three fatalities. Gabriel Delrisco,
charged in the fatal accident, managed to rack up 20 traffic
infractions including a DUI charge in 2001. People are now
asking: Why didn't he lose his license?
A report by The Miami Herald indicates at least nine times
he was hauled into court and managed to walk away with
charges dismissed. Then he plows into the rear of Serrano's
van stopped at a red light on South Dixie Highway. The
impact killed Serrano's three children: Hector, 10, Esmeraldo,
7, and Amber, 4.
There are no words to comfort the Serrano family on their
tragic loss.
But there are words for those traffic magistrates and judges
who allow repeat offenders to skip out of court and cause fur-
ther mayhem. Only, this being a family newspaper, we can't
repeat those words in this space.

Code officer has many to thank for reinstatement


EDITOR:
I am writing this letter to express my feelings
regarding the settlement of my lawsuits as well as
my reinstatement with the Key West Code
Compliance Department. This has been quite a
journey, but one that is nearing an end.
Tentatively on Feb. 9, a new journey begins,
one in which I willingly accept the responsibili-
ties that Mayor Morgan McPherson and the city
commissioners have entrusted to me. I am proud
of their trust and I will justify it to the best of my
competence and knowledge. And I want to thank
each and every one of them.
I am boundlessly grateful to many people and
hopefully without offending anyone, I must rec-
ognize a few.
For my attorneys, Mr. Hugh Morgan and John
Hogan and their firm, my debt of gratitude is
immeasurable. Mr. Morgan and his firm's com-
mitments and sacrifices throughout the course of
these cases are a true gauge of how much they
truly care for this community.
I also want to express my appreciation to the
City Attorney's Office and Shawn Smith, as well


as the City Manager's Office and Jim Scholl,
who worked to resolve this issue amicably.
I want to thank Mr. Ervin Higgs and Karl
Borglum and everyone at the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office. Mr. Higgs gave me
the opportunity to be a part of his professional
family, which reinforced my conviction to always
treat people the way you want to be treated. Mr.
Higgs taught me a valuable lesson, "Inch by inch,
life's a cinch."
I want to thank my family, especially my bet-
ter half, Cissy Bourzikos and her son Vasilis, and
my son Jimmy. They have stood by me and
inspired me to always act in a professional manh-
ner, no matter what curveball life throws at you.
I am grateful to the many supporters for their
confidence in me that empowered me to continue
on and put closure to this situation. I pledge to
maintain the ideal of treating our citizens and vis-
itors with respect and professionalism irrespec-
tive of their economic, political or social status.
Thank you all.

EDITOR:
We would like to say thank you to the
Women of the Moose of Key Largo.
How do we count the ways? Thank you for
caring. Thank you for remembering us. Thank
you for going to the trouble. Thank you for
the expense.

EDITOR:
We, the sons and daughters of Merili and
Sonny McCoy, have watched in admiration as
these two wonderful people devoted their time,
talents and resources to making these Keys a
healthier and friendlier place to live and play.
Merili and Sonny were kids here, playing
with their fellow Conchs, including the
Hemmingway boys. Together they received'
degrees from the University of Florida. Our
father is a nationally registered architect and
practiced for four years in the Caribbean. Sonny
designed and provided housing for thousands of
our citizens, in addition to schools, banks,
churches, hotels, parks, post offices and libraries,
and restored many of our Historic Buildings.
Merili devoted much of her efforts to landscap-
ing and the beautification of our islands.
When our mother passed away a few years
ago, our dad withdrew from what had been their
civic and social life. It has been sad to watch as
opportunists have sullied the legacy of two who
have given so much to these islands.

No power for No Name, for now


Commission
defers matter
for 6 months
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


No Name Key residents will
wait at least another six months
for a final decision on whether to
sewer the off-the-grid Lower
Keys island.
The Monroe County
Commission on Monday contin-
ued a public hearing to consider
a change to the county's compre-
hensive plan that would allow
sewers and "utilities necessary
for its operation" on No Name.
The 43 homes on No Name
Key are powered by solar pan-
els, generators or other means.
They also use cisterns or other
means of acquiring water, since
the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority doesn't have pipes
running to No Name.
Many of the homeowners
want public utilities, but many
others say those who bought
there knew there weren't any. No
Name residents from both sides


of the issue defended their posi-
tions Monday, when the com-
mission met at the Marathon
Government Center.
The vote was 3-2, with com-
missioners Sylvia Murphy and
Kim Wigington, dissenting, to
continue the public hearing.
"It is my opinion that we as a
collected body," she said, nam-
ing everyone from the County
Commission to various state
agencies, "have spent far too
much time, effort and money in
an attempt to do the nearly
impossible.
"My suggestion would be to
somehow eliminate No Name
Key from the 2010 [state con-
struction sewer] deadline. Allow
[the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority] to get on with the
business of sewering the accessi-
ble portions of the Big Coppitt
project," Murphy said.
The Aqueduct Authority is
designing and installing sewers
for most of the unincorporated
county.
Amendments to the county's
comprehensive plan can only be
applied for twice a year through


the state Department of
Community Affairs, meaning a
final decision on No Name
won't be made until at least mid-
July.
Last month, DCA rejected a
land development regulation
calling for No Name to be sew-
ered without first providing
commercial electricity. It ruled
language in the new regulation
was not specific to No Name
Key, which is one of 22 areas in
the Keys that's part of the
Coastal Barrier Resources
System. The ordinance provided
for sewers and utilities through-
out the system.
The commission decided -
as it did with the land regulation
- to wait until the Aqueduct
Authority has time to submit a
recommendation on whether to
sewer the island.
Mayor George Neugent said
the commission has no responsi-
bility to provide electricity on
No Name and that he has a
"sneaking suspicion" many resi-
dents will balk at footing a
potentially enormous bill to do
so.
"We don't need to be med-
dling in the affairs of the FKAA.


The Aqueduct Authority is going
to bring that info to us and then
we can make a decision," Mayor
George Neugent said. "This isn't
going away; this side and that


side of the island are equally
committed to their cause."
If commercial power does go
to No Name, Keys Energy
Services would provide it.

Airport terminal name resurfaces as issue


Commissioners
:set to discuss
:McCoy today
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Support to name the new ter-
-' minal at Key West International
Airport the McCoy Terminal
Complex appears to be waning.
The County Commission is
scheduled to address the contro-
Sversial topic of naming public
buildings after people when it
,'meets today at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
Mayor George Neugent put
the item on the agenda as a gener-
al discussion, but it's clear it con-
cerns naming the new terminal
after eight-year Commissioner
Sonny McCoy, who was defeated
in August in his bid for a third
term. McCoy also served 10


years as Key West's mayor.
Many have said the $31 mil-
lion terminal, which is yet to be
completed, shouldn't bear the
McCoy name.
"This thing has a life of its
own," Neugent said. "I just put it
on the agenda for discussion."
Then Commissioner David
Rice suggested the terminal be
named after McCoy at a May 2005
meeting. He motioned to approve
the name, Neugent seconded and
the vote passed unanimously.
In October, the county indefi-
nitely cancelled the dedication of
the terminal just one week after a
federal jury ruled that Monroe
County allowed a hostile work-
place because of McCoy's
actions. Hurricane Ike-related
construction delays were cited in
a brief press release as the reason
for the delay.
The federal jury awarded for-

$48,400 in damages. She alleged

through lewd stories of his sexual
exploits. The county's insurance
company is appealing the verdict.
Since then, there's been a
large public outcry that naming
the terminal for McCoy is inap-
propriate.
Commissioner Kim Wigington
suggested postponing the dedica-
tion until it's clear what the com-

munity wants.
"I think we can just not dedi-

name on it," she said.
Commissioner Heather
Carruthers said she prefers not to
make it a personal issue with
McCoy, but she does advocate
waiting until 10 years after some-
one's death to consider naming a
building after them.

11 show interest in dorm project


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


A new dormitory for Florida
Keys Community College's Key
West campus is one step closer
to reality.
Monday, the college board of
trustees heard from school staff
that there are 11 potential devel-
opers and operators. All under-
went question-and-answer ses-
sions with staff last week so the
firms understand such issues as
Keys land-use rules and zoning.
Response to the board's
request for proposals to build a
dorm are due back in mid-
March.
"It is really an important
component to the continued via-


ability of the college," board
Chairman Ed Scales said of the
dorms.
"It's critical to stabilize
enrollment. One of the problems
we've got in Monroe County is a
declining school-age population.
We have to look at going outside
of Monroe County to recruit stu-
dents. Because of the housing
costs [in the Keys] ... we've been
having some enrollment prob-
lems that have to do with our
geography."
The need for on-campus
housing was magnified by an
upbeat report of enrollment
numbers for the spring semester
that started earlier this month.


For the semester, the college
has 366 full-time equivalency
students compared to 310 for
spring 2008 an 18 percent
increase.
Overall headcount numbers
for this semester show 1,790 stu-
dents compared to 1,610 last
year.
"Enrollment is our life-
blood," Scales said. "It is no less
than miraculous, especially
given the current time." Scales
said increased enrollment is the
only way to keep the college
afloat in light of impending state
budget cuts.
The dorm project will be
overseen by a college direct-sup-
port organization called the
Campus Island Living


TDC OKs extra penny


Higher tax
could take
effect May
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com


The Monroe County Tourist
Development Council on
Tuesday voted 6-0 to increase
the tax on hotel rooms to help
promote each of the Keys' five
district advisory committees.
The additional 1 percent
would bring the total tax on
hotel rooms to 12.5 percent, an
amount proponents say is still
less than that charged by many
of the destinations the island
chain competes with for tourists.
"I've talked to 100 guests,
and not one of them said this [tax
increase] would affect their deci-
sion one way or another," said
TDC member Jay Marzella of
Parmer's Resort on Little Torch.
County Mayor George
Neugent supported the measure,
but cautioned that if sufficient
state and federal funds were not
forthcoming for sewer projects,
he would pursue a 1 percent
increase in the 7.5 percent sales
tax to help fund central sewers.
"There's the potential for two
pennies to be on the bottom
line," he said. "If it's OK with
you, it's OK with me."
The bed tax increase isn't a
done deal; it will first require a
public hearing and approval by
at least four of the county's five


hteoll] -l J,

commissioners.
TDC Director Harold
Wheeler said commissioners
could approve advertising a pub-
lic hearing date later this month.
If the commission approved the
increase in March, the higher tax
could go into effect as soon as
May 1.
Representatives of the five
DACs were unanimous in back-
ing the increase. Several pointed
out that it would add only $1 to
$2 a night to the cost of a room
at many Keys hotels but would
generate communitywide bene-
fits, doubling the money each
area has available to promote
tourism.
Wheeler also had letters of.


support from the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West, as well as several
chambers of commerce.
TDC members Morgan
McPherson and Lou Hernandez
and TDC Chairwoman Rita
Irwin, who was ill, did not attend
the morning meeting at the Key
Largo Grande resort.
The county's current bed tax
is 4 percent, which is levied on
top of the 7.5 percent sales tax.
The TDC takes 2 percent for
countywide promotions; each
district takes 1 percent for adver-
tising specific to its area; and the
remaining 1 percent, known as
the tourist impact tax, is split
between the county's general
fund and the county Land
Authority.

November and comprises Barry

Last year, the Florida
Legislature gave the college the
go-ahead to build a dorm. The
estimated cost is between $5
million and $10 million.

New parking stations replace meters


By SIAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key West sidewalks are get-
ting a little less cluttered with the
replacement of traditional park-
ing meters with new high-tech
parking stations.
This week, the city began
replacing 280 of the familiar
parking meters in Old Town with
10 new solar-powered stations
that will accept cash, coins, and
debit and credit cards in English,
Spanish, French and German.
The stations cost about $8,500
apiece and allow visitors and res-


idents to pay for up to eight hours
of parking, at $1.50 per hour, and
print out a receipt that is then dis-
played in the vehicle windshield.
"They're expensive to start
with, but you don't get all these
problems with broken meters and
'no, you can't park here,'" said
City Commissioner Bill Verge,
whose District 1 will include the
majority of the parking stations.
As far as the green aspect of
the new solar pay stations, Verge
said, "We're doing our part."
Prior to the removal of the

280 old meters, there were 858
parking meters citywide. The
new electronic meters are more
efficient in that they are not sub-
ject to moving-part failure like
the older models.
As of Monday, city spokes-
woman Alyson Crean said, there
were 25 broken parking meters
in the city.
"One of the benefits of
removing those 280 [parking
meters] is that it gives us an
inventory of working mecha-
nisms," Crean told the Keynoter
via e-mail. "That way, if a call
comes into our parking meter


hotline that one is out of order,
we can immediately swap it out."
Crean said there is no clear
way to gauge how much revenue
the city loses from broken meters
because the down time varies
and there is no way to predict
how long a car would park at a
specific meter.
No parking is allowed at bro-
ken meters, which many say is
bad policy in a city where finding
a parking spot often is like find-
ing gold.
In fiscal year 2007-08, city
parking meters generated rev-
enue to the tune of $2.01 million;

fiscal year were set at $2.05 mil-

Explosion


bums two
An apparent propane stove
explosion sent two elderly Big
Coppitt Key residents to the
Ryder Trauma Center in Miami
with severe burns Sunday
evening.
A neighbor called the
Sheriff's Office just after 5 p.m.
to report hearing an explosion at
290 Scorpio Lane, in the
Tamarac Park neighborhood of
Big Coppitt. Another neighbor,
Mike Puntillo, 59, reportedly
ran to the trailer and helped
Ernesto Searles, 80, and his
wife, Maise Searles, 83, out of
the trailer to safety.
Firefighters and paramedics
from Monroe County Fire
Rescue arrived and began treat-
ing the couple for burns. Ernesto
was burned on the arms, legs,
chest and face; Maise was
burned on her legs and arms.
The Sheriff's Office
TraumaStar air ambulance
transported both to Ryder.
According to reports by
Deputy Michael Claudy, the
explosion may have been caused
by a propane gas leak in the
stove, which appears to have
exploded when the Searles were
trying to light the pilot light.'

$8,000 raise


is questioned


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Two Monroe County School
Board- members are questioning
how a top School District admin-
istrator's salary jumped $8,000'
without the board knowing.
Board member Steve
Pribramsky said a resident
tipped him off to possible
improprieties regarding a con-
tract with Safe Schools
Coordinator Sunny Booker,
whose 11-month salary of near-
ly $88,000 was approved by the
board in June.
Pribramsky said he asked dis-
trict attorneys to look into the
contract, which now pays Booker
for 12 months at close to $96,000.
"I asked [attorney] Dirk
Smits to see if the contract was
done legally,, and it appears
there are some problems with
how it was done," said
Pribramsky, who is meeting
with Smits, School District
attorney Richard Collins and
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
today to discuss the issue.
Smits wouldn't speak to The
Reporter when called, but
Pribramsky said Smits told him
he was fielding similar questions
from board member John Dick.
"It does appear that the con-
tract was not done properly and
has to cbme before the board
again for approval," Dick said.
"I think this is a very serious
issue. Here we are talking about
reducing contracts to outside
vendors and the possibility of
layoffs this coming year, and I
look at this as the district trying
to give bonuses or special raises
to certain people."

.00-


Acevedo defended the pay
increase as not a raise or bonus,
but payment for work Booker did
outside her normal duties to
secure grants and reimburse-
ments from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
for hurricane and evacuation-
*related expenses incurred by the
district since 2005.
"We have folks that work 10
months or 11 months, and if we
need to extend their days or
keep them later or bring them in
early, I don't take that back to
the board," Acevedo said.
"That's the past practice we've
always done."
Acevedo said Booker was to
start work at the end of July, but
she was instructed to begin her
FEMA work at the end of June
and was paid at her regular pay
rate for that month.
"She got us hundreds of
thousands of dollars back in
FEMA money," Acevedo said.
"We also have a contract with
someone called Adjusters
International, and she learned
how to perform some of those
[FEMA claim] tasks and saved
us money we would've spent on
the contractor."
Booker's normal duties
including dealing with discipli-
nary issues, student health and
safety, anti-bullying, and hurri-
cane and disaster preparation.
She also coordinates the Monroe
Youth Challenge program,
which includes motivational
workshops aimed at helping stu-
dents deal with drugs, peer rela-
tionships and other issues.

By MARGARET MENGE

Unemployment numbers
released by the state last Friday
show Monroe County with one of
the lowest unemployment num-
bers in Florida for the month of
December just 5.8 percent.
The state unemployment rate
for December rose to 8.1 percent
- .07 percent higher than the un-
employment rate for November,
and 3.7 percent higher than the
December 2007 rate. The state's
current unemployment rate is 0.9
percentage points higher than the
national unemployment rate of
7.2 percent.
The highest unemployment
rate in the state for December
was in Flagler County, where
11.7 percent of the workforce
was unemployed. The lowest rate
was in Liberty County, where
unemployment was just 5 per-
cent. Miami-Dade County was
ranked No. 48 with 7 percent
unemployment for December.
The national unemployment rate
for that month was just a tad
higher 7. 2 percent.

Sauter, 34, has been fix-

he'll custom-fit a particular
bike to a rider, particularly
important for avid sport

"It's actually fitting the

In addition to his special-

from $35 to $50 and over-
hauls, where Sauter com-

Reef Relief looking to grow

Group reaching out beyond the Keys 4


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key West-based environmen-
tal nonprofit Reef Relief is
expanding its educational pro-
grams at a time when other non-
profits are feeling the pain of a
bad economy.
To reinvent and expand their
ocean awareness outreach, Reef
Relief staff brought on new staff
with years of environmental
activism experience to spear-
head a community effort from
the group's Environmental
Center on Greene Street, which
is celebrating its one-year
anniversary this month.
Mill McCleary, who spent 18
years working with Clean Water
Action in Tampa and Maryland
on general water quality issues,
is the new programs director.
"Growth is the main goal" for
the new year, McCleary said.
Step one is to build name recog-
nition.
"The organization had been
losing memberships for various
reasons; we're now growing.
We've gone from 350 members
a year ago and 900 today,"
McCleary said.
"People are becoming more
environmentally aware,". Jeff
Pearson, program assistant, said.
"I think they have identified
with Reef Relief's long-term
history as a way they can be part
of the solution."
McCleary and Pearson attrib-
ute the growth to working with
the community, particularly chil-
dren, to spread a message of
coral reef preservation.
Pearson and McCleary spend
a lot of their time traveling to
fourth-grade classrooms around
South Florida teaching about
coral reef environments.
The local program even
includes a field trip on a glass-
bottom boat to view the reef up
close. McCleary estimates that
in the past year, they spoke to
around 1,000 Monroe County
school children and more than
20,000 overall in the organiza-
tion's 22-year history.
"They haye just begun that
- - - - -


amazing stage of critical analy-
sis," Pearson said, referring to
youngsters. "They're just like
these fantastic sponges of infor-
mation, and they are going to be
the next generation of stewards
for the environment here. And
not only that, they're going
home to their families and taking
the message to their friends. It
really makes an impact on
them."
Pearson went on to say that
they even have kids come in and
volunteer at the Environmental
Center because they were
intrigued by the school program.
Speaking of volunteers, Reef
Relief is working with Florida
Keys Community College to
give three marine science stu-
dents an opportunity to get some
hands-on activism experience as
part of their college curriculum.
And in the coming months,
Key West residents can expect a
Reef Relief staffer or volunteer
to knock on their door as part of
an ongoing membership drive.
On a national scale, Reef Relief
will distribute educational mate-
rials alongside screenings of
IMAX's "Under the Sea 3D" at
more than 250 theaters nation-
wide beginning Feb. 13.
For more information on Reef
Relief, stop by the
Environmental Center at 631
Greene St., call 294-3100 or go

Valdez's streak
comes to an end
It wasn't a great weekend
for the Key West High School
boys' basketball team: Keith
Valdez's record consecutive
free-throw streak ended, and
the team lost two home games
to teams from Fort Myers.
Valdez made his first two
foul shots Friday night against
Fort Myers High to extend his
state record to 44 in a row, but
with 5:15 left in the second
quarter, he finally missed.
Facing a basket that had a net
loop hanging unhooked (it
wasn't a factor, he said),
Valdez's shot went around the
rim and out.

Coral Shores
beats Marathon
twice in 4 days
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

After Monday's decisive 50-
19 basketball win over Keys
rival Marathon High School,
Coral Shores players Cassandra
Howard and Latrice Johnson
checked the scorebook to see
who'd outdone the other.
Howard, who coach Andy
Thiery said averages around 10
points per game, scored 26
Monday to outdo the team's
leading scorer by just one point.
If Howard keeps that up, Thiery
said, Coral Shores could make
some noise in the upcoming
District 16-3A tournament.
"The last couple games, she's
really been coming on," Thiery
said of Howard, adding the


whole starting five has picked up
its game of late.
"They've been gelling and
when they put out maximum
effort, they're a pretty good
team," he said.
Coral Shores (6-9) wrapped
up its regular season Monday
with a fourth straight victory,
and a second in four days over
the Dolphins. The 'Canes beat
Marathon on Friday in a closer
contest, 46-35.
Howard and Johnson com-
bined for 51 points Monday,
while Johnson scored 24 points
in Friday's win.
The key to both games for
Coral Shores was forcing
turnovers against a Dolphins
team that's struggled with ball
security this season.

getting the ball and breaking

Coral Shores' Latrice Johnson goes up for one of her many fast
break lay ups during Monday's 50-19 win over Keys rival

days over the Dolphins.

Raiders need double OT to top Canes


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Coral Shores' Lady
Hurricanes extended nemesis
Gulliver Prep to double overtime
in Friday's District 16-3A soccer
championship before falling, 2-1.
"Oh, we had our chances,"
grimaced Cane head coach
Arthur Paterson. "I think we out-
worked Gulliver in overtime but
we couldn't finish on our scoring
opportunities."
As district runner-up, Coral
Shores (15-3) goes on the road to
play District 15-3A winner
LaSalle in the 7 p.m. Thursday
state regional playoff.


"I was happy with how we
played against Gulliver, although
not with the outcome," Paterson
said. "Life doesn't give you a lot
of second chances but here in the
playoffs, we have one."
If Coral Shores advances past
LaSalle, the Hurricanes would
likely meet Gulliver (20-4) again
in the Feb. 3 regional semifinal.
That would be the season's
fourth meeting of the South
Florida soccer rivals. Before the
district title game, Coral Shores
lost to Gulliver, 4-2, in the sea-
son's first meeting but upset the
Lady Raiders, 3-2, at a rematch in
Tavemier
"Gulliver knows we're not the
team they always used to beat


up," Paterson said. "They know
we're there on the field."
After a scoreless first half in
Friday's 16-3A title game played
at Archbishop Carroll, Gulliver
scored the first goal about mid-
way in the second.
Two minutes later, the
Hurricanes responded with a goal
by striker Jasmine Paterson off a
combination play with forward
Julia Hatfield.
The Hurricane defense and
goaltender Amber Spaulding kept
the high-powered Gulliver
offense off the board through the
rest of regulation and through the
first overtime.
With five minutes left in the
second extra period, Gulliver


West Boca schools Lady Conchs


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


A nice little ceremony pre-
ceded the Key West High School
girls basketball team's last home
game of the season last Saturday
afternoon.
The team's six seniors -
Alicia Arrazola, Daphne Barnett,
Kim Jones, Chelsea Zinser, Fran
Hicks and Cassandra McGee -
were introduced, and each
received a red rose and an
embrace from coach Glenn
Hayes Sr.
After that, it was all downhill,
as the Conchs, learning a lesson
in basic basketball, lost to West
Boca Raton, 53-41.
Hayes started an all-senior
lineup, and West Boca picked on
it for a 7-0 lead. Waiting in the
wings were Conch stars Chelsea


Storr, Shaniya Watson and
Ja'Taure Mathis. After two min-
utes, they bounded confidently
onto the floor. Their impact was
negligible.
The methodical Bulls led, 14-
4, after the first quarter, and 25-
11 at the half. The lead was 33-
20 when, with 20 seconds left, in
the third quarter, the lights went
out. During a 20-minute delay,
the gym looked as dismal as the
Conchs' shooting.
With the lights back on in the
fourth quarter, West Boca, mak-
ing uncontested layups, pulled
away to a 51-28 lead. The
Conchs outscored the Bulls'
reserves, 14-2, the rest of the
way to make the final score look
respectable.
The Conchs shot only 33 per-
cent from the field. Mathis led
with 11 points. Watson had only

Wanted: Leathership


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Next year's football team cap-
tains at Coral Shores will have
earned the honor.
In one of his moves after
being named new Hurricane head
coach, Kelly Clark put his candi-
dates for team captain through a
rigorous selection process.
Players had to submit a writ-
ten application, then appear in
person with a necktie to
discuss the importance of aca-
demics, community leadership
and community service with a
panel of Coral Shores coaches
and teachers.
"The experience goes beyond
football," Clark said. "Going
through these interviews gives
them a life skill that they'll take
with them."
"It's pretty cool," Matt Perry, a
two-year varsity starter, said of
the process. "I like having goals
that you have to live up to."
Veteran players Dylan Mats,

athletic director Rich Russell grill offensive lineman William
Erickson in a review process to name team captains.


William Erickson, Mike
Hampson and Alex Monteagudo
also went through the selection
process.
All will serve as team leaders
in some aspect, Clark said.
His selection process pro-
filed in a national coaching mag-
azine after he used it at Traverse
City Central in Michigan -
helps keep politics out of the
selection, Clark said.


Questions posed by the inter-
view panel focus on team issues,
the importance of academics and
possible ways to resolve prob-
lems among players. Prospective
captains were asked to describe
what qualities they admire in
other players.
"I love football and the cama-
raderie you get with the team,"
said running back and receiver
Mike Hampson.


Clark takes lead job


FOOTBALL / From 16

Traverse City-Central High
School in Michigan, said, "It's
our job as coaches to see that the
kids work hard and are prepared.
If we do things right, the wins
will take care of themselves."
Coral Shores has had only
four regular-season wins over the
last two years, despite playing a
schedule that did not include


expected district foes like
Gulliver Prep and Archbishop
Carroll.
In a move to increase off-sea-
son conditioning, Hurricane ath-
letic administrators promoted
Clark from the assistant coach's
spot he held with the team last
year. He replaces Todd Gideon.
"Coach Clark embodies
everything we are looking for in
a head coach," said Athletic
Director Rich Russell. "He was a


standout player at the high
school and college levels. He
has vast knowledge of the game
and has the charisma to draw
many newcomers to the pro-
gram."
Clark built three winning sea-
sons in a difficult situation at
Traverse Central, which earlier
lost the bulk of its athletes in a
school redistricting. He resigned
after Central endured a winless
rebuilding season in 2006.
'I played high school football
in Traverse City, including on a
13-0 state championship team,"
he said. "I went to a nearby col-
lege and started teaching and
coaching in Traverse City. The
area was really good to me, but it
seemed that there has got to be
other experiences out there."
Visits to his brother, living in
Tavernier, prompted Clark to
apply at Coral Shores.
Married with three children,
Clark currently teaches social
studies. In Michigan, he taught
Spanish.
A defensive back for Hope
College's NCAA Division 3 pro-
gram, he is in the school's
hall of fame as Hope's all-time
career interception leader with
18, a record that still stands.

Canes


stop


Fins

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Whatever Coral Shores coach
Pat Meyers said at halftime of
Monday's boys basketball game
against county rival Marathon
High School, it worked.
Trailing 29-22 at halftime, the
Canes went on an 8-0 run to start
the third quarter and took a lead
they would never relinquish.
They pulled away to win by 16
points, 54-38.
Meyers said he reminded his
team they were only down by
seven after a half in which the
Dolphins shot the lights out and
played solid defense.
"Hats off to Marathon in that
first half," he said. "I told the kids
... they can't hit every shot, so
don't press."
Meyers said the Dolphins
played a zone to help neutralize
6-foot 10-inch center Kyle Sikora
and force them to shoot from the
outside.
Marathon coach Kevin
Freeman said the strategy worked
early, but the team was often
caught out of position in the sec-
ond half.
"When we didn't do it right;
he scored every time and a cou-
ple times in the first half and a lot
in the second half. We didn't
have people in the right posi-
tion," he said.
Marathon started off strong
with a pair of three-pointers and
eight first-quarter points from
junior Nyran Ross. A three-point-
er by freshman Dwayne Ellis put
the Dolphins up 15-11 after the
first eight minutes.
A 7-2 run to open the second
quarter, including a Kenyatta
Scott three-pointer, put the
Dolphins up 22-13. A Scott free
throw later put Marathon up 10
points at 27-17.
But the second half was a dif-
ferent story.
Hurricanes point guard Zack
Stroup penetrated the Dolphins'
zone often in the second half,
forcing players out of position
and freeing ip Sikora to do dam-
age in the second half. That, com-
bined' 'with" Dolphins center'i

away in the end.
Marathon was outscored 15-3

lead was six when Coral Shores
went on a 9-0 run to make it 51-

District 16-4A champions for
the fourth consecutive year after
SFriday night's 1-0 victory over
St. Brendan, the Key West High
School girls soccer team will try


to finally win a state-playoff
regional quarterfinal game when
it plays Archbishop McCarthy at
7 p.m. Thursday at Tommy

In Friday's victory at Traz
Powell Stadium in Miami,
Krizzie Menez scored the
game's only goal late in the first
half. It was her 28th of the sea-
son and came on a tap-in after a
header by Kendall Galvan off a
throw-in by Kaya Lydamore. "It
was a great'combination play, a
very sweet-looking goal," Paul
said.
Menez, Lydamore and
Galvan a freshmen who has
emerged as a strong single center
midfielder won Paul's praise,
as did Scarlett Williams, Robyn

The McCarthy Mavericks, of


Fort Lauderdale, lost the District

Cardinal Gibbons, 2-0. Gibbons
is 25-0-2 and defeated Key West,
7-1, in November.
McCarthy is 14-7-3 and was
recently ranked fourth among
111 teams in 4A by
DownSouthRankings.com. The
Conchs are 12-9-1 and were
ranked 19th.
"If we play the kind of game
we have played, we can win,"

Alaina Davis scored the

Clark battles to
win Presidential

Jill Clark knew she had a
big problem.
SThe Islamorada resident
was hooked up to a sailfish
during the.first day of the
two-day Islamorada
Presidential Sailfish
Tournament that ended Jan.
17. Clark was battling the
fish on Capt. Glenn Miller's
Wet Dream and husband
Kevin was hooked up, too.
The fish had stripped some
400 yards of line, jumped off -
the bow and all of the sudden
the fish sounded and went
behind the boat. As she reeled
tight, Clark realized the line
had become entangled in the
boat's propeller.
While Kevin Clark wran-
gled with his sail, other
teammates held Jill by her
ankles over the side.
According to Inter-
national Game Fishing
Association rules, she-would
have to unravel her line from
the boat prop herself, with-
out anyone else touching it.
With the engine ut
down, Jill Clark put her rod
in a holder, donned a mask
and jumped in.
"Thank God that fish ran
after it jumped, and just hung
out. Unbelievably, the line
was easy to free. I just
reached in and un-plucked it."
Twenty minutes later,
Kevin Clark landed his sail
and within another five min-
utes Jill Clark wet and
exhausted cranked hers in.
The fish helped Wet
Dream take a second-place
finish and Jill Clark won the
top angler title.
Team Relentless, with
Capt. Paul Ross at the helm,
released 11 sailfish to earn
the overall championship.
Relentless anglers includ-
ed Fenton Langston of Key
Largo, Jimmy Hendrix of
Tavernier and Debbie and
Jimmy David of Fort
Lauderdale.
Twenty-seven boats
fished the tournament, with
85 anglers releasing a total
of 123 sailfish.


Sails are hot right now


Lack of kings
in the area
helps the bite

It's been a long time coming
but the sailfish bite is finally on
- this past week has been one of
the best for sailfishing along the
Middle and Upper Keys all win-
ter. Their numbers have simply
been impressive.
On the windy days, they were
tailing along the surf and for most
of the calmer days, they were
found balling up baits just
beyond the reef line.
Don't get it wrong: It hasn't
been so thick that if you go out
and drop bait, they're just lining
up to eat it. But for those who
know what to look for, the signs
of sailfish have been evident.
Most of the action has been
from the edge to 180 feet of
water, where you should look for
bait sprays. Those are where bait
fish are spraying out of the water
in an attempt to escape becoming
lunch for the sailfish.
Other signs are large dark areas
of water where bait fish have been
balled up into a tight circle by the
sailfish; tailing sailfish, which is
when you will see their fins cut-
ting through the surface of the
water; and the most obvious sign
of all, actually seeing them jump-
ing out of the water.
The best baits have been the
live ones, of course. Live
pilchards, live ballyhoo, small
live blue runners, small live boni-
to they're all good. Live pin-
fish are not a usual favorite of
sailfish, mostly because they are
not used to seeing them. This is
not to say that they won't eat
them; they will on occasion. The
other baits that are working well
are a trolled dead ballyhoo or
many different lures.
One of the keys to good sail-
fishing is actually due to the lack
of another species usually here in
abundance this time of year.
Usually the kingfish are so
thick along the reef line this time
of year that it's almost impossible
to keep a live bait in the water on
monofilament without getting cut
off repeatedly. But the kings have
slowed this past week, which
makes the sailfishing even easier
to do properly.
That's not to say that you won't
find shoots with concentrations of

kings, just
that they are
not every-
where as
they usually
are.
Even
anglers on
boats
anchored
up along
the reef line
have been
t a k.i n-g
advantage
of the sail-


fish action on flat-lined baits
behind their boats. Some have
had sails on in water as shallow
as 40 feet the past week, though
most of the lucky anglers were in
80 to 120 feet of water. Most
were actually fishing for yellow-
tail, which has started to pick up
again as waters warm.
Action has been scattered in
35 to 120 feet of water and not
very consistent in a certain depth
for more than a couple of days in
a row. The fish are moving, fol-
lowing the bait fish.
Speaking of yellowtail, this
season has been phenomenal for
them, not for the numbers but
more so for the average size of
the fish being caught over 4 or
5 pounds and what's known as a
flag. There's nothing like getting
a hit from a flag yellowtail. It's
nice to go fishing and not to have
to even think about measuring a
fish to see if it is legal.
One thing I've found that has
been absolutely extraordinary for


watchingg yellowtail is the Owner
Mutu Light Circle Hook. What I
found was that with either live
shrimp or silversides as bait,
these circle hooks work extreme-
ly well not only on hookup ratio,
but all were hooked in the lip.
This is awesome because if you
want to release a fish, the odds of
a lip-hooked fish surviving are
great, as opposed to a fish that
has the hook deeply embedded
into his inner body or gills.
Another big advantage is the
fact that you don't have to re-tie
on so many hooks as you do
when you loose one deep into a
fish and have to cut the line. With
them being lip-hooked, it's easy
to remove not only for you but
also for the fish. Plus, you don't
lose the hook.
Yes, these fancier hooks cost
more money than the convention-
al ones but if you factor in your
losses, the amount of leader you
lose when you have to cut off and
the time lost from fishing while
you are sitting and rigging, you
actually save money with them.
This week's free fishing semi-
nar is on yellowtail and reef snap-
pers. It's Sunday from 6 to 8 p.m.
at our Marine Educational
Center, 3740 Overseas Highway
in Marathon, across from the
Marathon Community Park.

Capt. Dave Navarro owns the
World Class Angler at 3740

and captains the charter boat
