Lobbying 'dream team'?


By RYAN McCARTHY

Flamenco Puro comes to
the Coral Shores Performing
Arts Center on Tuesday,
Marathon gears up for the
biggest arts festival in the
Middle Keys, and the Key
West botanical gardens stages
a Cuba exposition with a Hot
Havana Nights part). All this
and more in L'Attitudes,
starting on Page 25.



No code fines
The County Commission
says 150 code violations for
breaking the sign law will
be tossed because Keys
businesses need the high-
way exposure in these tough
times. See story, Page 8.

Bridging the gap
Key West City
Commissioner Mark Rossi
hopes to bridge .the gap -
literally by constructing
a.walking bridge from
Mallory Square to the
Truman Waterfront. See

Most Keys residents believe
only one thing will flow down
sewer pipes being installed
throughout the county in the
coming years and it's not
money.
In the midst of a growing
recession, it's unclear whether

terminal

Commission
won't address
the McCoy issue
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission punted Wednesday,
refusing to address whether the
new terminal at Key West
International Airport should be
named after former Com-
missioner Sonny McCoy and his
late wife Merili.
Instead, after debating back
and forth over the appropriate-
ness of naming buildings to
honor living people, the com-
mission sent the matter to the
Historic Florida Keys
Commission, an advisory board,
to consider a policy.
In October, a federal jury
awarded Sonny McCoy aide
Celeste Bruno $48,400 in dam-
ages. She alleged McCoy sexu-
ally harassed her through lewd
stories of his sexual exploits.
The county's insurance compa-
ny is appealing the verdict.
In 2005, then-Commissioner
David Rice made a motion to

Chesney now moving out


Country star
puts Keys manse
back on market
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

We all knew Kenny Chesney
was a country music superstar -
but a country music shooting
star?
The Keynoter reported on
Wednesday that Chesney pur-
chased a mansion on Caroline
Street in Key West.


By Thursday morning, he had
changed his mind a for-sale
sign was placed out front and a
Budget moving van was seen
with people loading stuff into it,
not out of it.
Lynn Kaufelt is the Key West
Realtor who sold the house the
first time around and is the listing
agent this time, too.
Kaufelt told the Keynoter, "He
[the owner] was pretty unhappy,
actually, about the piece in the
Keynoter. I think he felt that his
privacy wasn't respected.",


British Columbia, Canada,
radio station 890 CJDJ, "Peace
County's Country," says Chesney
issued a statement saying, "It's
funny how you can be moving
out before you even move in. I
may've been naive to think I
could just go down to the Keys
and disappear, because that was
the idea. I wanted to find a place
where I could just be, and thought
Pd found it. But with all the buzz
since we signed the papers, the
last thing I want to do to some-
place I love as much as Key West

Gastesi recruiting heavy hitters


DREAM TEAM / From 1

key political entities in Florida's
two most-populated counties:
Miami-Dade and Broward.
Often described as one of
Florida's top lobbyists if not
its best, he's been a city hall
and county hall insider for
more than 30 years. And he's a
well-known presence in
Tallahassee.
Book is also chairman of
the Miami-Dade Homeless
Trust, and has been actively
involved in lobbying for that
cause and others in addition to
working for such deep-pocket
global players as Bombardier
Mass Transit Corp. (which has
bid to supply hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars worth of
Metrorail cars in Miami).
"He has a lot of appropria-
tion experience and if any-
body can help with the Bond
logjam, he can," Gastesi wrote
in the e-mail.
Gastesi's plan is to split the
cost of his dream team among
six wastewater stakeholders:
the cities of Key West and


Marathon, the village of
Islamorada, the county, the
Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District and the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority.
Gastesi informed the vari-
ous entities of his plan via e-
mail Thursday. He proposed
using six lobbyists from three
separate firms and paying
each lobbying firm $5,000 per
month. That would cost each
of the taxing bodies $2,500
per month.
Book would get an addi-
tional $5,000 per month,
bringing the total up to
$20,000 per month for the lob-
bying team. That full-court
press would cost each stake-
holder $3,333 a month.
"It shows a united front.
It's the Florida Keys," Gastesi
said. "In [Washington, D.C.],
they don't know Islamorada or
Marathon."
Islamorada Village Manager
Ken Fields said he agrees and
will propose the plan to the
Village Council.
"Instead of us fighting, it's
better for us to maximize the


money available. Let's argue
over who gets what after the
fact," Fields said.
Marathon City Manger
Clyde Burnett is a bit skepti-
cal, saying the city already has
lobbyists in place.
"I would have to see
[Gastesi's] proposal and take
it to the council and see if they
think it is worth it to jump in
with the county," he said.
The other six lobbyists on
Gastesi's dream team: Rodney
Baretto and Brian May of
Floridian Partners LLC, Al
Lorenzo of Quantum Results,
and Carl Chidlow, Alberto
Cardenas a former state
GOP chairman and Colin
Mueller of Tew Cardenas LLP.
Gastesi is a former employee
of Tew Cardenas.
Baretto also is chairman of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
and spent much of childhood
growing up in Tavernier.
Chidlow served as finance
director for the Democratic
National Committee from
early 2006 through the 2008
presidential election.

Bicycles and other goods are loaded onto a moving truck
Thursday at Kenny Chesney's house at 425 Caroline St. in Key
West. He decided to sell it after reading about it in the

good to me, so I'm stopping the

Chesney bought the house at
425 Caroline St. for $5.7 million.
The new asking price is $6.495
million, according to Kaufelt.
This isn't the first time
Chesney has bought a mansion,
then reversed himself.
The Los Angeles Times report-
ed last April that he bought a
five-bedroom, five-bath house in
the Carbon Canyon neighbor-
hood of Malibu, Calif., for $7.4
million and then promptly relist-
ed the property for sale at $7.95
million. To date, no one has pur-
chased that home from Chesney.


The Key West- sale was
recorded with the Monroe
County Clerk of the Court on Jan.
20. The owner is a company
called Falcon 200 Inc., which
was acting on behalf of Chesney.
The sellers were Nicholas and
Susan Trivisonno.
The Caroline Street house is
called the W. Hunt Harris House
and was built in 1898. It has near-
ly 7,000 square feet of living
space, including five bedrooms,
7.5 baths, a gym and a 1,500-bot-
tle custom wine room. There's
also a guest house, a 42-by-18-
foot heated swimming pool and a
wet bar complete with icemaker,
granite countertops and teak cab-
inetry.

County


ranks low


for state


funding

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Monroe County likely will
have to find another way to fund
a potential working-waterfront
purchase on Stock Island.
The Florida Communities
Trust on Friday released project
rankings for $7.5 million in state
grants through the Stan Mayfield
Working Waterfronts Program.
Mayfield, a state representa-
tive who died while in office
Sept. 30, had sponsored a bill
aimed at using Florida Forever
money, normally used to acquire
environmentally sensitive land,
to acquire working waterfront
property.
The county's bid to purchase
the 8.1-acre former Gulf Seafood
parcel ranked ninth out of 10
projects. The intention was to use
it in perpetuity to house commer-
cial fishermen.
Another Stock Island project
proposed under the name of Gulf
Fisherman's Association and
penned by Fishbusterz Fisheries
co-owner Eric Dickstein ranked
fifth out of the 10 projects listed.
That project is titled Key West
Historic Shrimp Docks.
The Florida Cabinet, meeting
Feb. 10 as the Board of Trustees
of the Internal Improvement
Trust Fund, will consider the
projects' merit.
The top-ranked projects
whose cumulative requests total
less than the $7.5 million allocat-
ed will be funded. Monroe
County requested the full
amount, while Dickstein's proj-
ect requested $4.2 million.
If annual funds become avail-
able, the remaining projects may
receive grant funding in the order
they are ranked.
In December, the county was
in preliminary talks with the U.S.
Navy about possible grants
through the Department of
Defense's Encroachment Part-
nering Program. The program is
aimed at ensuring compatible
uses in areas surrounding mili-
tary installations.

Keys Opinion


Voters can help kill

gerrymandering

Florida voters won a victory this week and most never even
knew their rights were at risk.
On.Thursday, the Florida Supreme Court rejected a move
by the Legislature to kill a citizen petition seeking a constitu-
tional amendment to curb political gerrymandering.
Currently, the party that controls the Legislature pretty
much controls redistricting, which sets boundaries for the
state's congressional, state House and state Senate districts.
Current law only requires districts be roughly equal in popu-
lation and contiguous territory.
But incumbents, to maintain their power, have stretched
that to the point of being ridiculous.
Our own state Senate District 39 is a good example with
constituents scattered over six counties covering more than
one-third of Southeast Florida, from Hendry County to the
Florida Keys.
An een worse example is Senate District 27, which includes
a "connecting. strip" of land that gerrymanders GOP strong:
holds in parts of Palm Beach County to Lee County on the
Gulf Coast.
Florida lawmakers, who have manipulated the once-a-
decade redistricting process for decades have been fighting a
rear-guard action to head off the voter petition.
Unfortunately for them, arrayed against the Legislature on
this issue is a powerhouse of Florida public interest groups
including the League of Women Voters, Common Cause, the
Florida Consumer Action Network, the Florida Women's
Consortium, the Florida Conservation Alliance Institute and
others.
A Republican strategist who works on mapping and redis-
tricting all across the country has been quoted in Florida as
saying "When I, as a manipulator, have more of an impact on
an election than the voters, the system is out of whack."
Indeed.
So here's what you can do to correct this imbalance in fair
and equal representation.
First, sign the petition at www.fairdistrictsflorida.org.
Sponsors need 1.2 million petitions signed by qualified voters
to make it onto the 2010 ballot (that's because the Legislature
passed a law two years ago making it harder for citizens to get
constitutional amendments on the ballot).
The Florida Supreme Court justices did their part Thursday.
Now it's up to voters to sign petitions.
If this amendment passes, partisan politics would lose clout
and Florida voters would be the real winners.

higher taxes and insurance. We are under historic
guidelines for building.
A $100-per-night room is available in Key West
in the low season (summer), but when it is freezing
cold in, say, New Jersey, tourists who are informed
realize you pay for the best weather destination.
What kind of hotel room in New York City
would you get at, say, $50 or $60 per night as, Ms.
Barthelmas suggests is a fair price? What kind of
service or even cleanliness would she expect?
Regarding the parking lots, most of working
staff walks, bicycles,-rides the bus, etc. Hence just
a few cars mostly from, again, informed tourists
who realize cars are not needed on a trip to Key
West. I think that is a good thing, as we are mov-
ing toward a green and ecofriendly island.
I am sure she will enjoy Cuba and Mexico, as


she states they will be her next trip. The Third
World countries are nice, but she should consider
her safety, health and comfort. By the way, we do
have campgrounds here in the Keys?
I try to make sure people are educated on what
to expect when assisting them on their plans. It is
expensive. So are Block Island and Singer Island.
Key West has and.hopefully will always be
just a bit funky, fun and friendly. You can walk up
to anyone on the street without fearing for your
life. We say hello when passing on the street. We
help those less fortunate. We have fundraisers for
our communities' needs, including people, pets
and homes. We are a world-class art destination.
We have world-class theater. We have world-class
music. We are one human family.
Sure, in these economic times, every penny
does count. I believe I can speak with certainty
that all of our residents, workers, business owners
and even the politicians want to give the best
service possible and to make each visit to our
tiny Island special. I encourage Ms. Barthelmas
to visit and experience our hospitality.

School Board members need to get on board


EDITOR:
Hmm,-let's see. Without reading your article
about a School Board dispute over a salary
increase in the paper, I already knew the play-
ers' names. Steve Pribramsky and John Dick are
at it again.
Gentlemen, I am truly sorry that your candi-
date for superintendent of Monroe County
schools lost this past election. But it is time to
move on. I was once on an elected board and I
have won and lost on many issues, but at the
end, that is what democracy is all about.


Paper invaded privacy
EDITOR:
I was distressed to read your invasive and
unnecessary information in the Keynoter about
Kenny Chesney's move to the Keys. It would
have been interesting, if I had been a fan, to
learn that he was moving to the Keys and had
been more than generous with his time and tal-
ents performing here.
To invade his privacy, copy and print a copy
of his mail delivery form, and investigate his
closing date, cost of the home and where he
parks his plane is more information than anyone
needs. It is also, I believe, a blatant invasion of
his privacy.
He should just tell the Keys where to go and
find someplace that might respect his right to
live a life when he is not performing. None of
this is my business, of course.
I enjoy your paper and read it often. Please
do not stoop to this level.

Editor's note: Chesney has decided to sell
his Key West house.


- Why so bitter? Those two seem to be on the
outside looking in on most of the issues like
somebody stole their lollipop. When is enough
enough?
Listen to board Chairman Andy Griffiths and
make it a new year's resolution for a kinder and
gentler board with better communication. They
are so lucky to have such great educators like
superintendent Randy Acevedo and Safe
Schools Coordinator Sunny Booker, but I think
that discontent is in the way of what's impor-
tant, and that is being an A-rated school system
that is facing many challenges.
So why don't they jump on board and be
part of the solution and stop being most of the
problems? And to our newly elected State
Attorney Dennis Ward, I hope he's watching
how this one plays out. It sounds like it's right
up his alley.

Don't forget Lower Keys sewer money


EDITOR:
The need to lobby our representa-
tives in Congress for sewer money is
urgent and needed, and I certainly will
do it. But I-live in the Lower Keys
(Little Torch) and the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District com-
missioner made no mention of sewers
for the Lower Keys, which have the
most federally funded wildlife refuges.
The sewage treatment plants for
the Lower Keys are mostly in the
planning stage. The residents here do


not have any control over when the
work will be done, and the timing
may not and probably will not meet
the state deadlines.
The people who live here in the
Lower Keys must e-mail or write to
those who may be able to help pro-
vide federal money from the econom-
ic stimulus plan for sewering the Keys
in their entirety. After all, we voted
for them.

Production, players surprised


EDITOR:
My girlfriends and I went to see
"Steel Magnolias" at the Marathon
Community Theatre. I had seen the
movie and wasn't particularly anx-
ious to see it done by a relatively
small theatrical group. The movie
was one of my all-time favorites. I
just knew I would be disappointed.
Boy, was I wrong. What a sur-
prise I got. The production was
wonderful. I tried to pick out
which part or player was my
favorite, and came to realize they


were all excellent. Each character
was so different and so funny and
so special in her own way.
I got to thinking: Women are
lucky they have such close and
special bonds with their girl-
friends.
Thank you all who made this
wonderful evening at the Marathon
Community Theatre possible. You
made us laugh and cry and laugh
again. Well done.

TraumaStar questions remain


EDITOR:
Before any TraumaStar decisions
are made, all its costs must be
known. To date, there are actual
costs still not included in the coun-
ty's version of TraumaStar's expens-,
es.
At the last County Commission
meting, senior budget analyst Tina
Boen gave a presentation in which
she said (with a straight face) the
TraumaStar cost was now up to $3
million per year, instead of the old
$2 million per year (which was the
basis of the referendum's figures).
At the last Tavernier Community
Association meeting, when Sheriff's
Office Col. Rick Ramsay was told
what Tina said, he shook his head no,
and said it's still $2 million. So, here
are two county agencies both directly
dealing with TraimaStar, and neither
knew what the complete costs are or
what the other is' saying the costs are.
Is there a need for the helicopter
is another discussion that needs to
happen before making the final deci-
sion to keep TraumaStar as a taxpay-
er-supported function. We have other
serious medical needs in Monroe
SCounty that are not being met.
Another very important item relat-
ed to TraumaStar's potential funding
needs to be dealt with, stopped,
before any funding discussions go
any further. Included in Tina Boen's
$3 million figure is $169,000 that is
to be collected via the new taxing


districts to repay (some county fund
somewhere) past TraumaStar expens-
es. Many things are wrong with this
scheme:
New taxing district money is
used for expenses going forward, not
past debts.
When the sheriff agreed to
finance TraumaStar, there was never
any verbal or written mention, com-
ment or agreement that any money
spent would be paid back.
Why, if it's only $169,000,
does Tina want to collect $3 million
per year? Obviously somebody high-
er up told her to try to get this past
the taxpayers. This is just more coun-
ty voodoo economics.
When the $169,000 has been
collected so the debt is satisfied, will
the TraumaStar tax rate be reduced?
Otherwise, this becomes just an
unregulated incoming money stream.
If TraumaStar stays and the fund-
ing is via taxpayers, reduce its
expenses before determining the
amount needed to be collected. First,
and most important, move
TraumaStar to Monroe County Fire
Rescue for lines of authority, opera-
tion and finance. Let the fire chief be
responsible.
The County Commission once
again has to make an important deci-
sion and needs facts and reason. Our
fate is in their hands.

Airport should be named for Papa


EDITOR:
I can understand the controversy over
naming the Key West International Airport
terminal after some person still living, no
matter how influential he or she was in Key
West.
However, there could be little or no con-
troversy if it was named after the man who
put the name of Key West on the map. Call
it Hemingway International Airport.
Travelers from all over the world come to


visit Ernest Hemingway's home and, in
fact, if you go anywhere in the world and
mention the fact that you come from the
Florida Keys, someone will ask about
Hemingw'ay's life in Key West.
There would be little or no controversy if
our airport were named after one of our
greatest writers, Ernest Hemingway. So I say,
name it Hemingway International Airport.

Making real wealth is only way out now


EDITOR:
Most people recognize that the financial
position of the United States is in tough
shape today and may yet become worse. In
getting through our problems there is one
factor, above all others, that requires a suc-
cessful solution.
Briefly stated is that we, as a nation,
absolutely must achieve a condition where
we are creating more wealth that we are
consuming. Or, said in another way, we
simply cannot continue to write checks not
covered by our deposits without failing as a
society.
We have gotten away with unacceptable
behavior in this regard for years by borrow-
ing from others. We avoided paying for the
programs we wanted. We gambled huge
sums in the markets and lost. We survived
by living on credit and we have accumulat-
ed large debts. It is a sad story, but this is
where we are.
The total amount we currently owe is
reportedly something like $16,000 for every
man, woman and child in the country. How
a new administration will deal with this
enormous load remains to be seen. Those
now in charge are new and competent but
there are no existing plans that are g'uaran-'


teed. Road maps for action do not exist, but
excellent minds are at work, which will
hopefully lead to practical solutions.
What we have heard so far seems to call
for short-term stimulus packages, jump
starting this and that, aid for the auto com-
panies, mortgage holder relief, etc., all pos-
sibly helpful but somehow not aimed direct-
ly at the fundamental problem of creating
wealth. Just putting people to work does not
create wealth unless their work results in
something of marketable value. Simply put-
ting money in someone's pocket stirs the
economic pot, but in itself produces little
wealth. Such make-work money may create
good feelings, but seems like pretty expen-
sive therapy.
It is not unreasonable to prime the eco-
nomic pump with borrowed funds, but the
primary idea should always be to get real
water out of the well and get the priming
done with. Our leaders must plan for the
long term as well as the short. More losses
can be expected in this debacle, but with
our new, intelligent leadership, and the pub-
lic's continuing support, we will surely suc-
ceed.

County tosses code violations


150 get some
relief after
signs cited
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keypoter.com


The Monroe County Com-
mission has suspended some
150 code violations levied
against Lower Keys retailers
in a Code Enforcement sweep
earlier this month.
The sweep was aimed at
eliminating signs and banners
from state rights of way.
But numerous business
owners pleaded with the com-
mission Wednesday that their
livelihoods are at stake and
begged leniency during a
nationwide recession. Most
said the signs have helped
attract business from
Overseas Highway.
Ramrod Key detail shop
owner Leo Smith said he paid
$1,000 for his sign and
claimed he was ordered to
take it down because the
building on his lot is not large
enough to constitute a busi-


ness.
"I'm going to lose my
house if we don't do some-
thing, and I mean right now,"
he said, claiming his business
made just $50 in the past
week since the sign was
removed..
Sugarloaf Food Co. owner
Anne Rodamer has a 4-foot-
by-4-foot sandwich board
advertising her hours and
what the restaurant offers out-
side her business.
"Code Enforcement made
me move it and within a cou-
ple days, my sales were
down. I put it back and they
were back to what they were
supposed to be," she said.
Lesley Landscaping owner
Dan Lesley said he depends
on the small businesses being
cited to make his living. He
said small business owners
who "have risked everything"
should be granted leniency.
"In a dying economy, small
business is the last line of
defense," he said. "Signage is
imperative; without it your
business is dead."


The business owners were
especially none too happy to
learn the code sweep took
place in an effort to have a
National Scenic Byway des-
ignation awarded to U.S. 1.
"The county has applied
for a special designation for
U.S. 1 ... and as a part of that
designation, image is very
important," Growth Manage-
ment Director Drew Trivette
said. The Florida Department
of Transportation "asked us to
do a sign sweep for the right
of way so that we'd be in a
better position to win the
award."
The commission voted
unanimously to suspend the
violations until a new sign
ordinance is in place, but
emphasized caution in doing
so.
"Let's do what we can to
address this issue that these
people are here in these des-
perate and difficult times, to
help our small business own-
ers and then ... craft and
design an ordinance you feel
is fair to you guys," Mayor
George Neugent said to the
audience.

fees piling

Title still
not given to
First State Bank
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

First State Bank bought the
USS Vandenberg at auction in
December so plans to scuttle
the decommissioned military
vessel as an artificial reef
could proceed.
Yet the 520-foot ship still
sits in a Virginia boatyard, and
dockage fees continue to
mount.
The U.S. Marshals Service,
which has legal custody of the
vessel, has not released the
title because attorneys for
Colonna's Shipyard in
Norfolk, Va., never signed off
on the sale, so it was never
entered into the Norfolk Clerk
of the Court's database.
Now, a federal judge who
ordered the ship sold to satisfy
liens held by Colonna's has
asked the city of Key West to
submit to the clerk's office a
confirmation of sale to First
State Bank. The U.S. Marshals
Service won't release the title

Big Pine church

until that happens.
Colonna's charges about
$1,500 per day to store the
Vandenberg. Since the Dec. 17
auction, that equates to more
than $64,000.
Key West City Attorney
Shawn Smith 'told the
Keynoter via e-mail, "The
dockage fees that are accruing
will be deducted from the pre-
viously paid auction price."
Commissioner Bill Verge,
the city's point man on the
scuttling, told the Keynoter
Friday afternoon that he
expected the title to be trans-
ferred later in the day.
"The marshal has been
ordered now to release title,"
Verge said. But "we haven't
seen any confirmation of it
yet."
As for dockage fees, "If it's
not your ship, you can't be
billed for it," he said.
The city of Key West
owned the ship when
Colonna's secured a $1.6 mil-
lion lien against Reefmakers,
a New Jersey firm that has
been working with the city for
the past 12 years to scuttle the
Vandenberg. Colonna's and
three subcontractors decon-
taminated and stored the ship,
and were not reimbursed for
their services.
A federal judge ordered the
ship auctioned to get the
money.
At the Dec. 17 auction,
officials from First State
Bank, one of three banks pro-
viding financing for the scut-
tling seven miles off Key
West, showed up in Norfolk
and shelled out $1.35 million
to buy the ship so plans could
move forward.
Verge has been working to
get a tugboat ready to tow the
Vandenberg to the Keys and
the appropriate permits in
place to actually sink the ves-
sel.
"Everything else is teed up,
ready to go," Verge said. "The
permits are all in order. We've
been doing our work while
we've been waiting.
Everything is in limbo until
the title transfers."
Plans now call for an April
scuttling.

Prop scarring: At least 326 miles long


And that's just
the known areas
that are damaged
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

No one really knows how
badly boaters have scarred the
bottom of Florida Bay, say
Everglades National Park
researchers.
But a park study can account
for at least 11,751 individual
scars, says park researcher Dave
Hallc. Put end to end, the scar
would run more than 326 miles.
"But that's a minimum esti-
mate of the scarring," Hallac said


at a Thursday session with
reporters at the park's Key Largo
base. "In a lot of cases, you can't
make out every individual scar."
"It's possible we underesti-
mated the scarring by a factor of
10," Hallac said. "There could
easily by more than 3,000 miles
of scars out there."
Seagrasses serve as nurseries
to spiny lobster, stone crab and
many recreationally important
fish, says Dick Kimball,
Everglade superintendent. -If
they're damaged, so are the pop-
ulations of those marine animals.
The park will use the scarring
study as it prepares draft manage-
ment alternatives to be discussed
at public workshops expected


later this spring.
No dates have been con-
firmed, since the recent change in
federal administrations likely will
affect the normal regulatory
process, said park planner Fred
Herling.
Florida Bay regulation will be
included in the revised manage-
ment plan for Everglades
National Park, which includes
half a million acres of submerged
wilderness on Florida Bay's bot-
tom.
After the next round of still-
unscheduled workshops, staff
will review the comments and
issue a preferred alternative in
2010.
Previous proposals to regulate
boating to limit damage to critical
seagrass beds drew an outpouring


Ward seeks to tighten rules


State attorney
cites Coleman
act as driver
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

New Monroe County State
Attorney Dennis Ward is wast-
ing little time cracking down on
possible corruption at every
level of government.
Wednesday, he proposed the
County Commission adopt
"whistle-blower" and "four-day
rule" laws.
The first is meant to encour-
age any county employee with
knowledge of unlawful activity
by the county or an independent
contractor to report the viola-
tion. The employee would even
be rewarded if his or her infor-
mation leads to the recovery of
public money.
Whistle-blower acts exist at
the state and federal levels, but
Ward said his version allows for
the reward of up to 10 percent of
the net recovered or $100,000,
whichever is less.
The four-day rule is intended
to stop last-minute items not on
County Commission meeting
agendas from being heard by the
commission.
Ward specifically cited a
controversial vote last February.
That's when Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro and then-
commissioners Sonny McCoy


and Dixie Spehar allowed
wholesale revisions written by
attorney Jerry Coleman to be
added to a newly revised law
designed to protect the working
waterfront.
Commissioners didn't read
Coleman's changes which
favored his developer client -
before voting to approve them.
"County business that gets on
.this agenda would have to be
done four days prior to the meet-
ing and anything after that, any
one commissioners can ask that
we opt out of whatever is on the
agenda," Ward said. "That
would preclude what happened
a year ago Wednesday, when a
local attorney came in and there
was an addendum to an ordi-
nance and it was passed 3-2
without staff reviewing that and
without an opportunity for the
commission to review that."
The Miami-Dade County
version of the ordinance, which
Ward cited, specifically states
commissioners will receive a
copy of any item no later than
four working days before it can
be voted on.
"Whatever I can do to assist
Mr. Gastesi in his attempt to
educate employees on ethics,
I'll do," Ward said of County
Administrator Roman Gastesi's
request to teach ethics to county
employees. He also announced
the creation of a "public corrup-
tion" office.


Gastesi said he'd like staff to
receive thorough ethics training
in a variety of areas, including
the Sunshine Law, gift policies,
public records, conflicts of
interest and secondary employ-
ment.


of opposition from many in the
Upper Keys angling community.
Backcountry guides are partic-
ularly concerned about losing the
right to take their skiffs into shal-
low waters less than 3 feet deep.
Park managers say they real-
ize that experienced guides are
savvy enough to stay off the bot-
tom, but casual boaters are not.
"People who don't have a clue
about boating in shallow water,"
said Everglades National Park
Ranger Dave King, "will find the
shallow bottom."
The park's Key Largo office
has collected hundreds possi-
bly thousands of photographs
from boat groundings in Florida
Bay over the decades.
Hallac said that contrary to
many public assumptions,
grounding damage is not limited
to areas near boat ramps or chan-
nels.
"The reality is, that's not the
pattern," he said. "You're just as
likely to find scarring 10 miles
from shore."
He also said one common sug-
gestion better marking of
existing channels in the hard-to-
navigate bay "may not have a
major impact."


"Marking [channels] is not the
silver bullet that saves this park,"
Hallac said.
"There is no option but for the
park to actively address the nega-
tive impacts that some boat use
has had to the park resources as
we develop our long-term man-
agement plan," Kimball said.
Possible rules could include
some type of mandatory educa-
tion requirement for Florida Bay,
or limits on access to sensitive or
severely damaged areas.
Some heavily damaged areas
may take "decades" to recover,
Hallac said. The extent of the
problem overwhelms available
resources for seagrass restoration.
"This should not be seen as an
assault on fishermen in Florida
Bay," Hallac said. "Better man-
agement should lead to better
fishing for everybody."
A separate report compiled by
the park shows that boating in
Everglades waters, including
Florida Bay, by leaps and bounds
as Florida's population grows.
The studies are available at the
park Web site, www.nps
.gov/ever. Under the General
Management Plan section, look at
"Documents."

In a tight budget year, the Key

Tuesday will consider acquiring a
key piece of property at
Admiral's Cut that could create
an extensive pedestrian prome-
nade from Mallory Square to the
Truman Waterfront.
The discussion will include
discussion over the use of emi-

Admiral's Cut is an approxi-
mately 30-foot wide strip of
water between the East Quay
Wall at the Outer Mole berthings
and the end of the Westin dock
off Mallory Square.
In the past, the Westin has.laid

the Navy.
Admiral's Cut is now home to
some" floating docks with Jet
Skis, but Commissioner Mark
Rossi has a vision to unify pedes-
trian access to Key West's water-
front and said Admiral's Cut is
essential to that plan.
"The ultimate goal is to get
that opened up and let people
enjoy the Truman Waterfront,"
Ross said. "It's for the betterment
of the people of Key West."
Rossi wants visitors and locals
alike to be able to walk unimped-
ed all the way from the Ferry
Terminal at the end of Caroline
Street to the Outer Mole and the
Truman Waterfront property.
Admiral's Cut is the only
thing standing in the way. Rossi
wants to cross Admiral's Cut with
a pedestrian bridge, but first the
city has to figure out who owns it.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
has told the commission in the
past that specialized counsel may
be needed to trace the thread of
ownership and proceed with emi-
nent domain, if deemed necessary.
Smith is expected to deliver a
preliminary report about who
owns Admiral's Cut at the com-
mission meeting, which begins at
6 p.m. Tuesday at Old City Hall
on Greene Street.

Budget problems
Last week, Mayor Morgan
McPherson directed city staff to
come up with a plan to reduce
city spending by 5 to 15 percent
in light of an expected $1.2 mil-
lion to $1.5 million shortfall in
budgeted revenue in the current
fiscal year, which began Oct. 1.
But approval to spend
$250,000 on new fire equipment
apparently still is on the table.
City Manager Jim Scholl told
the Keynoter that first steps to cut
expenses will be curtailing over-
time and reducing travel, approv-
ing travel only for things like
training and certification. He also
said the city has enacted a hiring
freeze.
And last year, the city cut 34
positions, including school cross-
ing guards.
As to spending on Fire
Department requests, Scholl said:
"Those were budgeted expenses.


That's just part of the annual
expenses to maintain equip-
ment."
According to Tuesday's com-
mission agenda, the new spend-
ing will include:
$75,867 for a mobile air
compressor.
$54,870 for batteries,
microphones and portable radios.
$23,986 for composite air
bottles used as part of self-con-
tained breathing apparatus.
$66,178 for "personal pro-
tective ensembles."
$7,237 for high-rise fire-
fighting equipment, nozzles and
appliances for multi-story struc-
tures.
+ $30,624 for fire hoses.
Fire Chief David Fraga said
the new equipment would help
his department do its job more
safely and efficiently while stay-
ing in line with the city's budget-
ed expenditures.
"There's no fluff or no frills,"
Fraga said. "These are items we
need to ensure our personnel are
safe and able to do their mission.
These are monies that have been
budgeted. These were all discussed
thoroughly in the budget process.
Hopefully, the commission sees
that we need this equipment."
Division Chief Mike Karash
said the Fire Department responds
to around 2,000 calls a year,
which include fires, urban search
and rescue, hazardous material sit-
uations and community outreach
aimed at fire prevention.
Karash said the air bottles used
by firefighters to keep from inhal-
ing noxious fumes will be refilled
by the mobile compressor. In the
past, he said, "Anytime we have
an operation that goes on more
than an hour or two, we would be
depending on a local dive shop or
the community college" to refill
the depleted air bottles.
The new hoses, nozzles and
appliances will allow for more
effective fire suppression. "The
problem we face is penetrating
deep within a structure," Karash
said.
The new, integrated communi-
cations system will allow all fire
fighters on a particular scene to
communicate with each other and
a central operator. "Having per-
sonnel accounted for, I can't tell
you how important that is," Fraga
said.

Council nixes expansion of dive law


The aim was
to minimize
lobster poaching
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
agrees on this much you.
can't walk on water.
Longtime Coco Plum resi-.
dent Owen Seckinger pointed
that out to the council Tuesday
when he objected to a proposed
ordinance extending a ban on
diving or snorkeling in canals
or within 300 feet of residential
or commercial shorelines
around the annual lobster mini-
season.
Councilwoman Ginger


Burnett get,


Snead proposed the law to stop
poachers from scouting those
areas prior to the two-day sport
season, which falls on the last
Wednesday and Thursday of
July.
The city has an ordinance in
place for those two days, but
Snead aimed to move it back to
the Friday prior to the opening
of mini-season and extend it
until the commercial season
begins Aug. 6.
Seckinger argued that pass-
ing the ordinance would make
it illegal for him and his family
to even swim in their canal.
"It's a further infringement
on our natural rights to enjoy
our natural environment," he-
said. "I lived here for 35 years


on the same canal; our children
grew up there. We have family
members here all summer long
to swim in that canal."
The ordinance appeared to
have the council's full support
until Seckinger changed their
mind.
"I know poaching is a prob-
lem, but I like to be able to dive
off my dock when I want to,"
Mayor Mike Cinque said.
"There are laws against poach-


ing, but I don't know about
making it illegal for someone
just to swim in their canal."
Councilman Dick Ramsay
voiced support for the ordi-
nance before Seckinger spoke.
"If swimming in the canal is
in any way interpreted as being
illegal, obviously I can't sup-
port the ordinance," he said.
Vice Mayor Don Vasil even
lauded Seckinger for speaking,
saying he intended to support


the ordinance, as well. "Why
should we infringe our resi-
dents from using their property
for recreational purposes," he
said.
Monroe County and the vil-
lage of Islamorada have ordi-
nances identical to Marathon's
in place. Key Colony Beach's
300-foot ban runs from four
days before the mini-season
until 10 days after the begin-
ning of the commercial season.


fee-waiver power


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
Gave City Manager
Clyde Burnett the authority to
handle fee waiver requests for
emergency medical services
the city feels won't be paid,
such as ambulance rides for the
indigent.
Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said the billing agent
who handles waivers for the
city feels it's best for the
names to be kept out off the
public record due to medical
privacy. Rosasco even recalled
names from a list of those who
haven't paid being discussed at
City Council meetings in the
past.
"He thinks it will be easier
for him to do his job if we
grant that authority to the man-
ager," he said.
+ Gave the go-ahead to
Burnett to rent an efficiency
apartment at the Jolly Roger
Travel Park on Grassy Key.
Burnett said he met with the
park's owner, who is willing to
rent him a two-bedroom effi-
ciency for $900 per month so
the city can establish a tempo-
rary fire station on Grassy Key.
The city aims to build a perma-


nent station in the near future.
In the meantime, renting the
apartment and moving two
firefighters, a truck and a res-
cue vehicle to Grassy Key will
help improve the city's fire rat-
ing and lower residents' insur-
ance premiums.
Approved a local prefer-
ence ordinance meant to give-
local companies an edge when
it comes to doing business with
the city.
Local firms will receive a
10 percent "preference bonus"
when points for bid proposals
to the city are tabulated.
Councilman Pete Worthington
was the lone dissenter, saying
the proposal doesn't include
nearby communities.
"I still feel people from Key
Colony Beach and Duck Key
and areas around the city of
Marathon should benefit," he
said.
+ Heard a plan by Burnett
to lock the draw span of the
failing Boot Key Bridge in the
up position until it can be per-
manently removed.
Burnett said he sent propos-
als to three companies the state
Department of Transportation
works with. Locking the bridge
up means the. city will no.
longer need bridge tenders.

Winstead leaving Bahama Conch group


Land Trust
isn't able to
pay his salary
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney @ keynoter.com


The Bahama Conch Com-
munity Land Trust, a Key
West organization that restores
homes in historic Bahama
Village as dedicated work-
force housing, is celebrating
this week and getting ready to
kick off a new redevelopment
project.
But the smiles are tempered
as one of its own is saying
goodbye.
Wheeler Winstead, who
came on with the BCCLT full-


time as deputy director in
October 2007, has been a driv-
ing force behind the group's
projects, particularly its plan
to develop some of the
Truman Waterfront.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look
like Winstead will be around
to see that project realized.
Winstead told the Keynoter
that he is considering moving
back to his hometown of
Washington, D.C., and going
back to work as a community
planning consultant.
"This is a financial decision
on the part of the organiza-
tion," he said. "I was just
happy to be a part of it."
BCCLT Executive Director
Norma Jean Sawyer said, "It

was one of those things." She
said the BCCLT expected to
receive some state funding
that didn't pan out. But,
"We're hoping that it's not
permanent. We'll be using him
as a consultant."
Winstead is paid about
$65,000 annually plus a
$20,000 bonus he received
after moving to Key West.
While Winstead appears
heading out the door, the land
trust itself is moving ahead
with its Heritage Housing
Program.
In the summer, it will start
redeveloping five Bahama
Village homes, on Petronia
Street and Truman Avenue.
Sawyer said the new homes
will be constructed with the
environment in mind.


"They are going to be
green, everything from the
appliances to the materials."
Also, "It's going to be a train-
ing program for our residents
to understand green building."
Meanwhile, on Wednesday,


the Monroe County
Commission proclaimed this
coming week Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust Week
as a nod of support for the 46
workforce housing units the
group has created:


Callahan now

permanent fire chief


Acting chief
gets top job,
$118K annually
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy @ keynoter.com


You can take the "acting" por-
h a e tion out of Jim Callahan's job
title once and for all.
The Monroe County Com-
mission approved the permanent
hiring of the on-again, off-again
Fire chief at Wednesday's County
I D CCommission in Key West. And
M e 1 he even took less money than he
was offered to do it.
Callahan was scheduled to
make $118,000 per year to take
'- the job, but proposed, on his own,
Stood take $112,000 to free up
n money to fill the vacant deputy
chief position. That job was
ga s iven to Battalion Chief Gary
asesBoswell.
opy Callahan has spent most of his
', time as acting chief since being
"/."" hired as a battalion chief with
Monroe County Fire Rescue
V i"' three years ago. He's been a fire-
g ,. fighter in Florida for 38 years,
g earned a master's in public
''administration and holds numer-
ous state fire and emergency cer-
.,tifications.
Callahan first became acting
i chief in 2006, when he took over
for the ailing Clark Martin Jr.,
who has since died of cancer.
Martin resigned in 2007 and
Callahan remained chief until
Wayne Hinnant was hired in
August 2007. But Hinnant
resigned shortly thereafter, citing
a family illness, and Callahan
once again took the reins.
County Administrator Roman
.. Gastesi said Callahan was
adamant the deputy position be
. ;filled.
"He thinks its very important
.-- "and I'm not going to microman-
__" AM"_ _"___ 'age him,". Gastesi said. "I gae


Shim what I
think the
vision of the
department
should be and
its up to him to
make it hap-
pen. Whatever
tools he needs
CALLAHAN its up to me to
get them for
him."
Commissioner Kim Wigington
was the lone dissenting vote in
approving Callahan's hiring.
She's been vocal in not supporting

$100,000-plus salaries for county
employees.
"This has nothing to do with
him personally at all. We've done
without a deputy for years, in the
best of financial times," she said.
"Now in the worst of times we're
going to bring a deputy on."
County Mayor George
Neugent said compared with
what other fire chiefs make in
South Florida, hiring Callahan
was a wise choice.
"I feel lucky. to get Chief
Callahan for what we're paying
hiti,'" he said.

Fishermen
generally OK
with reduction
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Final action on state rules for
lobster-trap reduction and marine-
life collecting reach the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission this week at its meet-
ing in the Florida panhandle.
Saltwater regulatory issues
will be discussed Thursday at the
Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
in Sandestin, near Destin.
Both the marine-life rules and
the trap-reduction plan were dis-
cussed at length during the
FWC's December meeting, held
in Key West.
Keys lobstermen generally
accepted the plan to restart the
reduction program with-passive
reduction, which would eliminate
10 percent of any trap certificates


sold outside the immediate fami-
ly. The move does not take traps
away from working fishermen, a
solution that many trappers called
something they could live with.
Peter Bade of the Stock Island
Lobster Co. disagreed strongly,
saying any reduction from the
current state limit of about
490,000 legally approved lobster
traps further threatens an imper-
iled industry.
Fishery managers believe a
lobster fishery of 400,000 traps
should produce the same harvest
with less environmental damage.
Another final public hearing
will take place on proposed rules
that would add new fish and
invertebrate species to marine life
(aquarium species) regulations.
Many of the changes were
approved by a collectors' adviso-
ry panel, but Forrest Young of
Dynasty Marine said he felt
"betrayed" when FWC staff went
further than expected in suggest-
ing regulations.

State scores C- in

keeping good teachers


National group
issues grades
for all states
Associated Press

Most states, including
Florida, are not doing what it
takes to keep good teachers
and remove bad ones, a nation-
al study found.
Florida, though, is doing
better than most. Although
grading out at C-minus,.
Florida still ranked among the
top 15 states in the study
released last week by the
National Council on Teacher
Quality. Only Iowa and New
Mexico require any evidence
that public school teachers are
effective before granting them
tenure.
"States can help districts do
much more to ensure that the
right teachers stay and the
right teachers leave," said Kate
Walsh, president of the
Washington-based nonpartisan


group.
Hiring and firing teachers is
done locally in more than
14,000 school districts nation-
wide. But state law governs
virtually every aspect of teach-
ing, including how and when
teachers obtain tenure, which
protects teachers from being
fired.
Tenure is not a job guaran-
tee. But it is a significant safe-
guard, preventing teachers
from being fired without just
cause or due process.
Nearly every state, includ-
ing Florida, lets public school
teachers earn tenure in three
years or less, the group said. In
all but Iowa and New Mexico,
tenure is virtually automatic,
the study said.
States were given letter
grades in the study, earning a
D-plus on average.
"Overall, Florida has done a
good job in meeting some of
our goals, but there is signifi-
cant room for improvement in
several areas," the report says.
"Florida stands out for requir-
ing an annual evaluation for all
teachers that is primarily based
on student performance."
The report also cites
Florida's merit pay system as a
model although only a handful
of the state's 67 school dis-
tricts participate. Florida's
Merit Award Program provides
bonuses for top teachers based
mostly on how well their stu-
dents do on standardized tests.
Those two factors resulted
in a grade of B for teacher
evaluation and compensation,
one of six major areas covered
by the study. Florida received
in C in four other areas: meet-
ing No Child Left Behind
teacher quality objectives,
teacher licensing, state
approval of teacher prepara-
tion programs and alternative
.routes to certification.
Florida, though, received an
F in the final area: preparation
of special-education teachers.

Boat ramp at the Quay to get T-dock


Safety cited;
as for sign?
still waiting
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A floating T-dock might be
installed at the recently refur-
bished boat ramp adjacent to
the former Quay Restaurant


property at mile marker 54 in
Marathon.
City Councilman Pete
Worthington said several resi-
dents complained about foot-
ing on the new ramp and that a
spit used in the past was
removed during the ramp's
construction.
"It may not' be slippery
now, but in six months it'll


have a nice -layer of slime,"
Worthington said. He suggest-
ed the T-dock or a 6-foot pier
"to address people getting on
and off their boats."
A larger problem may be
that most people don't know
there's even a boat ramp there,
he said. The city is waiting on
a sign from the state
Department of Transportation,
which cites workload for the
delay.


State Farm pulling out of Florida


Life, health,
auto policies
not affected
Associated Press


Gov. Charlie Crist said
Tuesday if State Farm wants
to pull out of the state's prop-
erty insurance market, it
should not be allowed to do
any business in Florida.
The company released
plans to withdraw from the
Florida's dicey marketplace;
claiming billions of dollars in
losses from hurricanes in 2004
and 2005 and the state's reluc-
tance to allow them to charge
higher premiums.
"When you look at our


financial situation, we have no
alternative," State Farm
Florida President Jim
Thompson said. "We're going
to be out of this business. We
will not have the resources to
pay claims."
State Farm Florida, estab-
lished in 1998 as a subsidiary
of State. Farm Mutual
Automobile Insurance Co. to
underwrite Florida's property
market, is continuing its
appeal for a 47.1 percent pre-
mium increase in the courts.
Thompson said Tuesday's
announcement was not a nego-
tiating ploy.
"If we had not taken these
steps, it would have resulted
in insolvency," said


Keys briefs


Thompson, who said the com-
pany is losing $20 million a
month on its Florida property
business, paying out $1.21 for
every dollar coming in.
In its statement, State Farm
said it has been unable to
obtain regulatory approval
from Florida officials on high-
er rates for its property insur-
ance for homeowners, renters
and others who own condo-
miniums, boats and business-
es.
State Farm spokesman
Chris Neal said 1.2 million
customers with residential and
other related property insur-
ance policies would be affect-
ed.
Neal said State Farm's 2.8
million auto customers and
those with life and health
insurance policies in the state
are not affected by the compa-
ny's decision.


At Tuesday's City Council
meeting, former council mem-
ber Chris Bull said the ramp
desperately needs a sign to let
residents and especially
tourists know it's there and
free to use.
That will stop overuse of
the Dodge Lake ramp off
Aviation Boulevard behind
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport, Bull said, especially
given the lack of available
parking there.
The city ran into trouble
with neighbors of the Dodge
Lake ramp when both the
Quay and 33rd Street boat
ramps were out of commis-


sion. Nearby residents com-
plained about the noise and
traffic to the council on
numerous occasions.
The city aims to steer traf-
fic away from Dodge Lake
now that the Quay reopened
and a.doublewide pre-stressed
ramp is being installed at 33rd
Street.
City Manager Clyde
Burnett drew laughs from the
audience at the Marathon
Government Center when
Councilwoman Ginger Snead
asked how soon the Quay sign
will arrive.
"We're dealing with
FDOT" Burnett said.

SHINING STARS: Plantation Key School students are rewarded for achieving an A-plus state

Friends recall
man who loved
his community
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Robert Regan, a mainstay of
the insurance industry in the
Florida Keys for decades, died
Thursday in Tavernier. He was
64.
"Bob" Regan ran the family
founded Regan Insurance Co.,
and was active in the Upper
Keys through Rotary
International and other organiza-
tions.
He served on the board of the
Florida Wind Storm
Underwriting Association, and
was widely considered one of
the state's top experts on storm-
related insurance issues.
"Bob loved this community
and did so much for it, but he
always did things quietly," said
Jay Hershoff, a close friend of
more than 30 years. "He just
loved his family, loved to fish
and be outside."
"Bob virtually grew up in the
Keys. I remember him being at
Coral Shores [High School]
when I got there," said Tony
Hammon, pastor of Island
Community Church. "Every-
body in the community knew
Bob Regan, and everyone


respects him."
Mr. Regan
was admitted
to Mariners
Hospital two
weeks ago for
a severe case
of pneumonia.
SHe was sur-
rounded by
REGAN family and
friends when he died Thursday.
"It's incredible, all the calls
we've been getting from the
community and the insurance
industry," said Lorie Head,
office manager at Regan
Insurance.


The cruise ship Norwegian
Pearl will dock at Pier B in Key
West Harbor this morning and
stay until 5 p.m. in an unsched-
uled port call.
The vessel carries 2,500 pas-
sengers, and that means added
revenue for the city's budget;
charges cruise lines a fee for
each passenger who disem-
barks.
The reason for the port .call
wasn't given.


"Mr. Regan was totally com-
mitted to his clients, the insur-
ance industry and his communi-
ty," she said. "He installed that
ethic in all of us on the staff."
Mr. Regan was married to
wife Charlen, whom he met
while attending Coral Shores,
for more than 40 years.
"Bob treated everyone as his
friend," Hershoff said. "When
he gave you his word, it was set
in concrete. You knew he'd be
there for you."
Services were still being
planned at press time. A memori-
al likely will be scheduled for
later this week.
"Everybody in town is going
to be there," Hershoff said.


The Mariners Hospital
Auxiliary board has a new slate
of officers.
They are Judi Bray, presi-
dent; Olga Lazo, first vice presi-
dent; Kathy Ward, second vice
president; Mary Dawson, third
vice president; JoAnn Waits, gift
shop chairwoman; George
Geisler, treasurer; Betty Kellers,
corresponding secretary; and
Leslie Dillon, recording secre-
tary.

Sugarloaf KOA
gets delivery of
classic trailers
Associated Press

Three campgrounds across
America including one onr
Sugarloaf Key are getting
some new tenants, but campers
need not be jealous of their shiny
silver neighbors because the


Airstream rigs are for rent.
Kampgrounds of America Inc.
and Airstream Inc. are placing 25
of the company's most popular
model trailers at the Sugarloaf
Key KOA and at KOAs in Las
Vegas and Bar Harbor, Maine,
letting travelers rent the recogniz-
able trailers like hotel rooms.
They're the only three of the
more than 450 KOAs nationwide
getting them.


"A lot of people, frankly, don't
know we're still in business
because the trailers have looked
largely the same over the years,"
Airstream chief executive Bob
Wheeler said. "We know there's a
demand so it's just a matter of
providing it in an easy and suc-
cessful way in a great setting."

Royal Caribbean's profits plummet


Four ships in
the fleet stop
Sin Key West
Associated Press

Royal Caribbean Cruises said
Thursday that fourth-quarter
earnings tumbled 98 percent,
missing Wall Street's expecta-
tions, reflecting a sharp drop in
cruise bookings, higher-than-
expected fuel costs and unfavor-
able foreign exchange rates.
For the quarter that ended


Dec. 31, net income fell to $1.4
million, or 1 cent per share, from
$70.8 million, or 33 cents per
share, a year ago.
Revenue dipped 2 percent to
$1.46 billion from $1.49 billion
in the fourth quarter of 2007.
Analysts polled by Thomson
Reuters forecast earnings of 7
cents per share on revenue of
$1.46 billion.
Royal Caribbean which
has four cruise ships make port
calls in Key West said net
yield dropped 5.9 percent during


the quarter, due to a sharp drop
in bookings after the financial
crisis in September. Net yield
reflects cruise revenue earned by
the company without some vari-
able costs like commissions and
transportation.
The company said unfavor-
able foreign currency rates led to
a steeper net yield drop than its
forecast of a 4 percent to 5 per-
cent decline.
Royal Caribbean said its
results also suffered from high-
er-than-expected fuel and insur-

"We're back and better
than ever," says Chad
Gardner of Chad's Deli
and Bakery in Tavernier.
Chad's, founded in
1996, never went away
but the popular eatery did
close for several weeks
for a renovation.
"Our kitchen is bigger
and more practical, the
counter is larger and our
seating is more functional.
And you have to check out
the bathrooms," Gardner
said. "It's just about keep-
ing pace with what we can
handle."
With lunch and dinner
business on the rise, new
breakfast hours are
planned in the very near
future.
"From the start, we've
stressed good food, big
portions, fair prices and
great service," Gardner
said. "My real secret is
that the best and most
loyal staff in the Keys is
right here."
Chad's menu offers a
crossover mix of staples
from American, Italian
and Mexican cuisine.
"I'm no chef," Gardner
laughs. "I just make fresh
food that tastes good to
me. Fortunately, a lot of
other people seem to share
my taste."
Chad's is open from 10 -
a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday
through Thursday, to 10
p.m. on Friday and

down U.S. 1 with SUVs in tow.
Airstreams are instantly identi-
fiable by their long, rounded
shape imagine a giant alu-
minum Twinkie and have been
a historic part of American culture
since the company began manu-
facturing trailers in the 1930s.
Wheeler said the company has
been looking for years for ways
for introduce potential customers
to the iconic trailers. Until now,
people have had to purchase an
Airstream or know someone who
owns one to sleep in its silvery
confines.
The model at the camp-
grounds, the 25-foot Flying
Cloud, retails for about $67,000,
Wheeler said.
"They come with all of the
comforts of honie, the pots and
the pans, everything. All they
need to bring is the food they're
going to eat," says Heidi Webber,
general manager of the Sugarloaf
KOA.


She says two face the water
and three are within the park
itself. Of those three, one will be
moved to the beachfront on May
1. They take up five of the KOA's
207 camping sites.
All were delivered this month,
with the fifth one arriving on Jan.
25. Rates are $170 to $220 a
night, depending on which loca-
tion in the park you choose and
whether or not it's season.
Wheeler and Shane Ott, chief
operating officer of
Kampgrounds of America, said
the Airstream rentals do more
than just familiarize customers
with the cushy amenities of a
high-end recreational vehicle.
Tourists need only open the
door to a turnkey travel experi-
ence, just like a hotel room. Other
than that, the Airstreams are
largely unmodified from factory
versions, Wheeler said.
Airstream trailers have a par-
ticularly devoted following,
spawning clubs for owners and
books and Web sites for fans to
brush up on Airstream history.


NASA paid $250,000 in 1963
for a set of four modified
Airstream trailers to isolate astro-
nauts after a series of planned
moon landings. One of the units
was transferred to the
Smithsonian Institution in 1974.
The Museum of Modern Art
in New York has a Bambi model
Airstream from 1960 in its per-
manent Architecture and Design
collection.
But why put a travel trailer in
a museum? The collection's sen-
ior curator, Paola Antonelli, says
the Airstream was modem during
a crucial time in U.S. history.
"The Airstream both an
object of architecture and one of
design, both a technological and
an aesthetic masterpiece, and a
triumph of design for the people
_ came to embody the sense of
progress, dynamism, curiosity,
and energy that are at the basis of
MoMA's idea of modernity,"
Antonelli said.

Keynoter staff supplemented
this report.

ance costs. While crude oil
prices dropped during the quar-
ter, Royal Caribbean said at-the-
pump pricing was higher than
anticipated.
For the full year, earnings
totaled $573.7 million, or
$2.68 per share, compared with
$603.4 million, or $2.82 per
share, in 2007.
Full-year revenue rose 6
percent to $6.53 billion from
$6.15 billion in the prior year.
Analysts forecast 2008 earn-
ings of $2.73 on revenue of
$6.53 billion.
For the key "wave period"
- the time from January
through March when cruise
bookings are generally higher
- Royal Caribbean said it has
stabilized bookings by cutting
prices dramatically.
"The start of the wave peri-
od has produced booking'vol-
umes consistent with last year,
albeit at significantly lower
prices," Chief Financial
Officer Brian Rice said in a
statement.
The company said the rev-
enue outlook is expected to


remain weak this year.
"We recognize this will be a
very challenging year and do
not expect any quick turn-
arounds in our pricing," Rice
said. "Consumers are certainly
delaying their purchase deci-
sions, but as they get closer to
their vacations, they appreciate
a great value and are buying
cruises."


The company forecast a
first-quarter loss between 30
cents and 35 cents per share,
compared with analysts' expec-
tations for a loss of 8 cents per
share.
For 2009, Royal Caribbean
expects to report a profit of
about $ 1.40 per share. Analysts
forecast a full-year profit of
$1.67 per share.

ages will be offered for sale,
and people are encouraged to
bring blankets and picnic in

Dolphins' new
football foes
include rival
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School has
released a tentative 2009 foot-
ball schedule this week featur-
ing games against new
District 8-1A opponents.
In December, the Florida
High School Athletic
Association reclassified the
Dolphins from District 16-2B.
Coach Lance Martin said it
will be nice to renew some
familiar rivalries.
"Curley was our biggest
rival until they dropped out of
our district, and they'll be
back on our schedule," Martin
said.
Archbishop Curley High
School left Marathon's dis-
trict two years ago, but the
teams are set to meet Oct. 17
at 2 p.m. in Miami.
Moving over from District
16 with the Dolphins are
Parkway Academy and
Florida Christian. They'll join
Curley, Dade Christian,

Another early Conch exit


Soccer team
loses in regional
once again
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

When it was over, about 9
o'clock, the tears from the
exhausted players flowed, as if
from a bountiful spring, onto
the already dew-drenched turf
of Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium.
The Key West High School
girls soccer team had just lost


to Archbishop McCarthy, 4-3,
in the state-tournament region-
al quarterfinals Thursday
night. Now, sprawled incon-
solably in their soiled white
uniforms, their season once
more at a jolting January end,
the cheering crowd gone, the
Conchs waited for coach Scott
Paul to assuage the sting.
"Ladies, I have never been
more proud," he said. "You
went down with guns blazing."
The guns had blazed from
the beginning. Freshman
Robyn DeRoche scored less


than three minutes into the
game. With 17 minutes to go in
the first half, she scored again
for a 2-0 lead.
But the black-clad
Mavericks, with their 49-goal
star Chrissy Gratz finally on
the field ("I'm really sick," she
had said before the game),
fought back.
Aubri Williamson cut the
lead to 2-1. Kerry Zacharias
launched a long free kick that
Conch sophomore keeper Jess
Bodmer punched back into the
goal. It was 2-2 at intermis-

Coral Shores


drops semifinal


No, 2 Raiders
end Canes'
soccer season
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A revamped Coral Shores
boys soccer lineup held the
district's No. 2 team scoreless
through the first half of the
tournament semifinal Tuesday
but late goals carried Ransom
Everglades to a 2-0 win over
the Hurricanes.
"I was really proud of the
team we had out there," said
Coral Shores coach Jorge
Bosque. "They did a heck of a
job against a good team. It was
a phenomenal ending to the
season."
The Canes had home-field
advantage in Tavernier for the
District 16-3A Tournament,
but didn't have many of their
most experienced players.
Leading scorer Mike
Hampson was sidelined after a
weeklong illness, and several
other veterans left the program
late in the season.
"Everybody who played
against Ransom truly wanted
to play," Bosque said.
"Nobody was slacking.
[Senior midfielder] Myles
Turton defended Ransom's
best player all night. Myles
was exhausted when he got
done, but he was all over that
kid like a blanket."
Senior Jose Lujambio and
junior Fabian Placencia kept
the offensive pressure on the
Ransom goalie but couldn't
get a shot past him.
Hurricane goalie Kiki
Jaurequi made several daz-
zling saves himself while
directing a young defense.
Ransom broke the scoreless
deadlock midway in the sec-
ond half when the Raiders
launched a shot Jaurequi was
powerless to stop. The long-
distance shot dropped like a
rock to slip just under the
goal's top bar.
"That was an unbelievable
shot," Bosque said. "I thought
for sure it was going high."


Ransom (14-8-1) advanced
to play district top seed
Gulliver Prep (13-3-2), which
dispatched Archbishop Carroll
in an 8-2 semifinal. Coral
Shores was scheduled to host
the title match Friday (results
pending at press time).
Coral Shores (6-9)- closed
out the regular season Jan. 22
with a 1-0 home win over local
rival Marathon High School.
-In the game's first minute,
Hampson scored after claim-
ing a loose ball from a scram-
ble in the middle of the field.
He launched a kick at the
Marathon net from about 30
yards for the only score of the
game.
"Marathon had some nice
shots but Kiki made some real-
ly good saves," Bosque said.
Of the players from the dis-
trict semifinal, Lujambio and
Turton are the only graduating
seniors.
"We've got a lot of young
kids like Steven Lawrence,
William Rodrigues and Hunter
O'Connor who really stepped
up," said the coach. "Now we
start regrouping for next year.
We should have a solid core
coming back."

Coral Shores wrestlers stay
off the tournament mat this
weekend to get ready for


Friday's start of state competi-
tion in Key West.
"It's been tough over the
last few weeks so we're taking
a break to let everybody's
injuries heal," said Hurricane
head coach Mark Terrill.
"We want to be rested when
we go to Key West but we're

when we get there."
The Hurricanes expect to
field a wrestler in each of the
14 weight classes, a rarity in
the long history of the Coral
Shores mat program.
"We started the season with
about 22 guys on the squad
and still have about 20,"
Terrill said. "That's pretty
good."
Assistant coach Joe
Biondoletti and Terrill expect
at least half the starters to fin-
ish among the top four spots in
their respective weight classes
at the District 16-A Meet at
Key West.
Top four finishers from the


nine-team district advance to
the Regional 4-A Meet, Feb.
1.3 at Cardinal Gibbons in
Broward County.
"We're in one of the tough-
est regions in the state so if we
can send three or four guys
from there on to state, that
would be great," Terrill said.
The Canes have only two
starting seniors, Josh Ritz at
140 pounds and Greg Angel at
171.
Ritz, a 140-pounder who
compiled the team's best
record at 38-4, transferred into
Coral Shores with extensive
wrestling experience. He is
among the most likely


Hurricanes to advance far into
the postseason.
Angel; in his first season as
a wrestler, has a 16-9 slate.
"If anybody pulls off a big
surprise at district, it could
very well be Greg," Angel
said.
Veteran junior Yordan
Palanco (119, 24-8), junior
Luke Terrill (145, 38-8) and
sophomore Dan Doyle (125)
also have been wrestling well
headed into the postseason.
"Actually, we're ahead of
where I thought we'd be this
season," Terrill said. "Next
year, we're going to be really
good."

sion, and senior Scarlett
Williams gave Bodmer an
encouraging pat as they
walked toward the halftime
meeting.
It had been one of the best
halves Paul had seen from a
Key West team in his 10 years
as coach.
The second half, though,
began badly. Gratz scored on a
penalty kick to break the tie.
When Bridget Becker scored
with 28 minutes left for a 4-2
McCarthy lead, the Conchs
chances looked as slim as the
late-month slice of moon far
beyond the stadium lights.
"We can do this, ladies,"
Paul insisted. "Uphill adversi-
ty, make it happen."
Bodmer's saves kept the
Mavericks at bay. Krizzie
M6nez tried to make it 4-3
with a penalty kick with 10
minutes left, but goalie
Katerina Pasquariello lunged
to her left to spear the ball, and
the Conch sideline gasped in
disappointment.
Bodies began to fly as the
tackling became fierce.
Conch senior Ashley


Stephenson limped to the side-
line after getting a second yel-
low card. With eyes glistening,
one of which was blackening,
she looked out to see Kendall
Galvan cut the lead to 4-3.
Then, with the crowd of 300
roaring, Menez broke down
the left side but couldn't get
past the last defender. There
was a last chance, but a corner
kick went unconverted.
The final whistle sounded;
the Conchs (12-10-1) had lost
a home quarterfinal game for
the fourth year in a row.
Menez sat in disbelief while
other Conchs flung themselves
face-down into the wet grass.
Forty yards away, a gagging
Scarlett Williams ("a barroom
brawler," said Paul) painfully
awaited a stretcher.
"You're an awesome group
of players, I'm going to miss
you guys," Paul told his team.
"Losing hurts, it is what it is."
The barefooted Stephenson
unleashed a few expletives
that drew smiles and laughter.
She and her teammates then
went out for a cool-down jog.
Their tears would soon dry,
and in the morning they would
be back at school.

games," Martin said of the
new district, "and our travel is
going to be cut down more so
than ever with the regular sea-
son. It's nice to have that."
As of Thursday, the
Dolphins were still looking
for an opponent for the annual
Kick Off Classic scheduled
for Aug. 28 and another to
open the season the following
week. The team's bye week
will likely come during the
second week of the season.
Scheduling difficulties
moved the traditionally sea-
son-ending game against Keys
rival Coral Shores High
School to the fourth week of
the season. The Hurricanes
will visit Marathon for the
second straight year on Sept.
18 at 7:30 p.m.
Anchoring the Dolphins
next year will be 6-foot-4,
241-pound defensive end
Thomas Ryan. The senior-to-


be was awarded honorable
mention on the All-State team
for the second straight year in
Class 2B. He was the only
player from a Keys school to
make an All-State roster.
Ryan has already received
offers from several Division I
football programs and Martin
said many other programs are
slated to visit Marathon to
watch him play. He's taken the
off-season to prepare for
Miami-area combines spon-
sored by Nike and Under
Armour in the next two
months.
"He finished the season
around 225 and now he's
around 240," Martin said.
"He's not playing baseball.this
year so he can concentrate on
lifting, which I thought was
wise on his part."
Martin said Ryan has been
named by www.Scout.com as
one of the top 100 players in
the state during the pre-spring
evaluation period.


The Lady Conchs finished 12-10-1. They are all smiles following their fourth straight district title,
but again for the fourth year they couldn't advance.

soccer team Tuesday after-
noon when the Conchs lost to
Monsignor Pace, 4-3 in two
overtimes in the first round
of the District 16-4A tourna-

"It was a battle all the way

The Conchs held a 3-2 lead


until Pace scored after a free

minutes left in the second

Tough finale for Lady Fins


Dade Christian
wins in a romp,
season's over
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls soccer team season came to
a disappointing end Thursday
with a 9-1 loss to Dade Christian
School in the Class 2A regional
tournament.
Coach Lynn Landry said the
District 15 winners simply over-
whelmed the Dolphins from the
start.
"They were an excellent
team; they moved the ball well,"
Landry said. "Our kids gave a lot
of effort, but we couldn't get
much going."
The Crusaders scored their
first goal within the first four
minutes and before long the lead
had grown to 3-0.
"After they scored their sec-
ond goal, some girls got down,"
Landry said. "The goals they
scored were great goals; they
were just taking great shots."

At that -point Landry
rearranged his attack, but to no
avail.
"I tried to play a more defen-
sive style and it hurt us on
offense," he said.
Landry said when it comes to
that level of soccer, it's tough to
compete with private Miami-'
area schools, which typically
attract high-level athletes.
"The difference in the game
last night was their speed and
their ball control. Every game
we've lost this year, that was the
difference," he said.

Pace outmans
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


An outmatched Key West
High School boys basketball
team lost to Monsignor Pace,
82-53, Thursday afternoon in a
District 16-4A game in Opa-
locka.
"The game was a little bit
better than the score indicated,"
said Key West coach Paul Davis.
"We tried, but they went 12-deep
on the bench and we basically
had five guys."
Key West did considerably
better than last season, when it
lost to Pace, 92-25.
SThe Conchs trailed by only
six points after the first quarter,
but were gradually worn down
against a much taller team led by
6-foot-8 Rakeem Buckles, who
has signed to play at the
University of Louisville.
"We'd get only one shot -
we had no offensive rebound-
ing," Davis said.


DeLaCruz. Katie Landry hit
DeLaCruz on the run, but she
lost the ball and had to steal it
back from a Dade defender. She
then put a shot in the upper right
comer of the net.from about 20
yards out.
The Dolphins finished the
season 9-7-2 after beginning the
year 8-0. But their second half
schedule was packed difficult
matchups against strong teams
like Palmer Trinity, Westminster
Christian School and Keys rivals
Coral Shores and Key West.
Marathon lost the District 16
championship game to Palmer
last Friday, 5-1, but the top two
teams moved on to regionals.


Key West



Buckles scored 20 points, but
the Conchs were hurt even more
by Christian Martinez, who
made nine 3-point shots for a 17-
4 team ranked fifth in South
Florida by the Miami Herald.
The Conchs were led by
Keith Valdez, who scored 19'
points. Vladimyr Sibera was
next with 14 and Jycorae Mason
had 9.
Key West was coming off a
73-51 victory Tuesday night at
St. Brendan. In that game, the
Conchs' second victory of the
season against the Sabres,
Valdez and Sibera had 23 and 16
points, respectively.
Now 10-11 overall and 5-4 in
the district (one victory was
awarded by forfeit), the Conchs
will close the regular season
against Marathon at 7:30 p.m.
next Saturday at the Bobby

Warriors again stop Fins


Soccer team
loses 2-0, sees
the season end
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

If the pattern remained the
same, it would take only one
more game for the Marathon
High School boys soccer team to
pull even with Westminster
Christian School.
The boys' season came to a
close Wednesday with a 2-0 loss
to the Warriors in district tourna-
ment play. It was their third loss
to Westminster this year, but the
gaps got smaller every time.
The Dolphins lost 4-0 on Jan.
8 and 6-1 Dec. 5 against a strong
Warriors team, so coach Jim
Murphy said he was pleased
with the team's effort.
Marathon played solid in the
first half, Murphy said, but
defensing a strong team with the
wind at their back proved a diffi-


cult task in the opening half.
"It was super windy and they
had the wind, so they controlled
the ball most of the first half.
Any time we tried to clear it'd
hit the wind and it looked like it
hit a wall," Murphy said.
The Warriors' first goal came
just before the first half-water
break from around 18 yards out.
Murphy said the Warriors' top
player beat several defenders
starting from the left side of the
field to set up a shot that got by
goalie Anthony D'Ascanio.
"He was putting on some
very nice moves and after he
beat the last person he kicked it
into the left side of the goal,"
Murphy said.
The Dolphins missed an
opportunity to tie the game after
eighth-grader Riley Durkin was
fouled in the box. Left-footed
junior Matt DeFillips went low
right and the Westminster goalie
made the save to keep it a 1-0
game.


The next goal came off a
defensive mishap on a free kick
from around 24 yards out.
"Our wall wasn't set up prop-
erly and they got an easy goal.
We set it up to guard the far post
instead of the near post and left it
wide open," Murphy said.
With the wind at their back,
the Dolphins went on the offen-
sive to close the gap in the sec-
ond half. Murphy moved James
and Charles Bragan up to attack-
ing positions to generate offense,
but the Dolphins failed to capi-
talize on any opportunities.
The Dolphins featured a siz-
able roster this season and will
graduate roughly 15 seniors,
Murphy said. He'll have a small-
er and, younger team returning
next season.
"At practice and in games,
they always worked hard no
matter what the score was. They
gave their all and it was always
with good character," Murphy
said of his seniors.
Marathon finished the season
at 5-11-1.


No intimidation

than that."
Already irked by reports
of dismissive comments
heard from a LaSalle coach
scouting the 16-3A title
game, the Lady Canes took
the LaSalle field for pregame
warmups to find the host
Lions using a good chunk of
midfield rather than staying
to their own half.
"They were trying to
intimidate us," Paterson
said. "But you don't want to
make our girls mad. That
was one of the better whoop-
ings I've seen this year."
Hatfield and Paterson
each scored a goal for a 2-0
halftime lead, although the
Canes had enough easy
chances to have added three
more scores by the break, the
coach said.
The Canes took care of
that in the second half. Jen


Jenkins delivered "perfect
corner kicks" to set up two
scores, and Cammi Lopez
Filled in ably when defender
Maddie Ingegno went out

By the end, Coral Shores
had emptied its bench in the -

"LaSalle said they wanted
to play us," Paterson said.
"It's like the old saying be
careful what you wish for."
The Lady Hurricanes (16-
3) face district rival Gulliver

3:30 p.m. regional semifinal

single goal.
"The girls are playing at a
high level and have confi-
dence," Paterson said.
"They're up to the chal-
lenge."
