Collecting depos

Vanden Brook


pounds pavement
in search of voters
By SEAN KINNEY'
skinney@keynoter.com

The saga over the suit
brought by Mary Vanden
Brook contesting the results of
the Circuit Court judge elec-
tion continues, with Vanden
Brook traveling up and down
the Keys, collecting deposi-
tions to take back to a judge in
Tallahassee.
"Even Al Franken is going
to be in the Senate before
Vanden Brook is the judge.
This is absurd," says Key
West resident Jedde Regante,
who used to practice law in
town.
In question are 67 absentee
ballots that were rejected after
review . by the county
Elections Canvassing Board
because the signature on the
ballot didn't match the signa-
ture on file.
On Jan. 22, Leon County
Circuit Court Judge Kevin
Davey ruled against some of
Vanden Brook's allegations,
clearing the staff of the
Supervisor of Elections Office
of any misdeeds, but asking
Vanden Brook to return with
more depositions from absen-
tee voters whose ballots were
rejected.
Vanden Brook had presented
the court with 16 statements
from voters and is working to
track down the rest.
"We're doing pretty good, I
think," Vanden Brook told the
Keynoter. "We've had some
difficulty in . getting these
long-distance depositions."


On Friday she was travel-
ing the length of the Keys to
secure a handful of state-
ments. She also said she has
had to contact people in
Tennessee, New York and
even the wife of an active mil-
itary servicemen who lives in
Okinawa, Japan.
"Pretty uniformly they [the
voters with rejected ballots]
are saying that their signature
doesn't look the same, but
they are definitely the voters.
They want their vote to
count."
Vanden Brook said as part
of the deposition process, her
legal team was not asking vot-
ers whom they voted for,
merely that they did indeed
vote.
Currently the 67 ballots
that were rejected are sealed
and in the custody of the court
in Tallahassee. If Davey finds
that the depositions have
merit, he could opt to have
those ballots opened and
counted.
After a machine and manu-
al recount, Vanden Brook
ended up losing to Slaton by
just four votes out of nearly
33,000 cast.
"You might think I was a
big, sore loser but really and
truly the law demanded the
recount," Vanden Brook told
the Keynoter yesterday. "I
know there are people that are
Tegan Slaton supporters that
want me to go away." But,
"I'm determined to see this
through whether I win or
lose."
A date has not been set for
the trial to continue in
Tallahassee so Davey can
review the depositions.

Chase

exceeds

100 mph

Key Largo man
finally caught
on the Stretch
Keynoter Staff
A pre-dawn police pursuit
on the 18-Mile Stretch result-
ed in the Friday arrest of a
Key Largo man on charges of
fleeing and hit and run.
Antonio Alvaro Alvarez,
36, reportedly was at the
wheel of a car that hit speeds
of more than 100 mph before
it crashed into a trailered boat
and fence at the Manatee Bay
Marina.
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Julio Carrillo report-
ed seeing a car traveling north
from Key Largo on U.S. 1 at
"a high rate of speed" around
3:40 a.m. The trooper said in a
report that his patrol car
reached'speeds of 110 mph
and "was still not gaining on
the vehicle."
The suspect car disap-
peared from the highway. A
search by Carrillo and Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
deputies near Morrison
Avenue, about mile marker
112, found the car had crashed
off the right shoulder into a
marina fence and a boat. The
car was registered to Alvarez
but the driver was missing.
About two hours later,
Alvarez was found walking
near the area. He reportedly
admitted being the driver, and
said he fled "because he was
scared."
He was charged with
felony fleeing from officers,
and hit and run involving
property damage, a misde-
meanor. He also was charged
With possession of drug para-
phernalia.

eys Opinion


Crist knows well the

new political reality
"He's cooking his own goose."
Ed Kennedy
Broward County Republican state committeeman.

Politics makes for strange bedfellows.
Never was that more evident than this week's Florida politi-
cal scene with Republican Gov. Charlie Crist sharing the stage
with President Obama in Fort Myers.
The headline in Friday's Miami Herald pretty much captured
the political fallout: "GOP seethes over Charlie Crist's stimu-
lus-plan support."
The Herald quoted Florida Sen. Mel Martinez as saying that
Crist "doesn't get it."
And the GOP committeeman quoted above pretty much tells
you where many in GOP leadership are headed on this - it's us
vs. them. Sadly, that great divide is what's killing the country.
This is not an endorsement of the compromise bailout plan
the Democratic-controlled Congress delivered to the President.
No, this is about a new political reality that has emerged after
eight years of gridlock and name calling by both sides.
It's not the GOP or the Democratic National Committee call-
ing the shots anymore.
A growing distrust of lockstep party apparatchiks has driven
record numbers of voters to register as "anything but a
Republican or a Democrat.
Monroe County's longtime election supervisor, Harry
Sawyer, a Republican, says he couldn't have won without
crossover votes and independents. That same pattern emerged
in Democrat Heather Carruthers win in a county where the
GOP still holds a voter registration lead. But note that
Democrats won the Sheriff's Office and the state attorney seat.
So here's how we see political winds a-blowin'.
Mel Martinez once headed up the GOP national congression-
al campaign. He resigned from that post long before the
Republican Party meltdown that ushered Democrats into the
White House and winning majorities in both the U.S. House
and Senate.
The Orlando Republican announced two years early that he's
riot going to seek re-election to his once-safe Senate seat.
Maybe he sees the handwriting on the wall?
And when Crist decided to ignore GOP warning flags about
embracing Obama's bailout plan, Crist proved he's far smarter
than many of Florida's doctrinaire GOP party leaders.
It will be independent voters in Florida who make the differ-
ence in the 2010 U.S. Senate race. And if Crist continues
appealing to that moderate middle, it may prove key to easy re-
election as governor. Then Crist will be sitting in the catbird
seat while Kennedy and Martinez watch glumly from the side-
lines.

Don't forget who truly got the Conch Republic going


EDITOR:
Harry S Truman said, "The only thing new in
this world is the history that you don't know."
On Feb. 23, 1839, a group of 36 including at
least five of my direct ancestors signed a docu-
ment titled "Memorial of A Number of Masters -
of Wrecking Vessels, on the Coast of Florida,
Opposed to the Establishmnent of a Port of Entry
at Indian Key." They were petitioning the
Congress because the proprietor of Indian Key
had managed to have Monroe County divided by
"A line'running from West end Bay Honda Key,
to Cape Sable" and his settlement at Indian Key
selected as the temporary county seat of the
newly established Dade County.
The document indicated that it was not in the
best interest "of the Government, of the revenue,
of commerce, nor for the people at large..." and
the owner of Indian Key had misrepresented .the
important points for his own financial benefit.
Fast-forward 170 years and the Upper Keys
Business Group in their efforts to waylay a long-
established festival [Conch Republic
Independence Days] are attempting the same
thing. It is said that imitation is the sincerest form
of flattery, but it is usually said ironically when
someone tries to gain attention by copying some-


one else's original ideas. The ripping off of one's
intellectual property isn't flattering, it's stealing.
In 1990, the mayor of Key West, Capt. Tony
Tarracino in his capacity as prime minister,
appointed Peter Anderson secretary general of the
Conch Republic. Duly appointed, not self-pro-
claimed or anointed as has been reported,
Anderson then created the 10-day festival known
as the Conch Republic Independence Celebration
and for the past 19 years Anderson has been the -
voice and spirit of the Conch Republic.
Anderson believed that on April 23, 1982, that
then-Mayor Dennis Wardlow had spoken for
everyone and to that end and in the spirit of unifi-
cation, Anderson drafted a resolution to include
all of the Keys and it was passed unanimously by
the County Commission in April 1994. If not for
him, the Conch Republic would still be just Key
West and I wouldn't be writing this letter - just
proving the theory that no good deed goes
unpunished.
The festival, Anderson's brainchild, has raised
thousands of dollars for nonprofits and brought
positive publicity, revenue and goodwill to Key
West and the Florida Keys.

Give a shout out to letter carrier Myriam


EDITOR:
Some longtime residents of the Keys may
remember me when I entertained in some of the
local clubs in Marathon in the late '60s under
the stage name Al Koholic. But enough about
that. What I would like to briefly.talk about is a
lovely, effusive and gregarious lady by the
name of Myriam, who endeared herself to hun-
dreds of residents (and doggies, too) in the
Coco Plum area especially, as well as other sec-
tions of Marathon.
This lady, as the saying goes, braved rain,
hurricanes and boiling hot temperatures for the
last 25 years to cheerfully deliver your mail.
During this period, amid all the strenuous duties
associated with her profession as a postal carri-
er, she managed to raise and counsel a beautiful

Don't forget the cats
EDITOR:
I recently was a guest at the Forgotten
Felines monthly meeting. Forgotten Felines is a
nonprofit organization. Its mission is to trap,
spay, neuter and aid homeless and abandoned
domestic cats from Summerland Key to Long
Key.
The group's 2008 impressive statistics are
141 males neutered, 208 females spayed, 48
fostered and adopted, 104 rescued (includes the
48 adoptions), 750 tested, medicated and having

masterminding and creating beautiful Christmas

won her Best Decorated House from the City

Unfortunately, all the folks and the canine

Myriam, well deservedly, is now going to retire.
However, as is usually the case, one person's

Tropic Cinema loses a true friend


EDITOR:
We at the Tropic Cinema learned
with sadness of the death of Leonard
Chetkin last Tuesday.
Len was in a real sense the spirit
behind the Tropic. He was our land-
lord, but also our friend. Were it not
for his kindness and generosity in pro-
viding a favorable long-term lease to
the Key West Film Society, there
would be no Tropic Cinema. As the
one who negotiated with him, I can
tell you that he wanted very much to
make the deal happen and continued
to support the theater in other ways.
I remember fondly our first


fundraiser for the Tropic, back in
2003, when Len movingly sang his
trademark song "Key West, Key
West." Then he put up the first $500
to buy the first seat plaque in the-new
Carpet Theater.
Len and his wife Emmi sold the -
building last summer, and we now
have new landlords. But we will
always remember Len as our first, and
as a landlord par excellence. He
should be remembered by all for his
contribution to Key West cultural life.

Keys have been great to us


EDITOR:
Twenty years ago, we moved here
from Memphis, not knowing the ups
and downs we would face in our
lives. There have been many changes
in these 20 years, from hurricanes to
health problems, family situations,
friends, community and all the great
and good stuff that has happened, too.
That's life, and what a life.
Thank you to the Marathon com-
munity for the kindness, love and
support you have shown use through
these years. Thank you to Habitat for


Humanity for giving us the privilege
of owning a beautiful new home here
in Marathon, right next door to
friends we have come to know and
love through these years. What a
blessing they are to many people.
This is a great place to live, and
yes, life does have its ups and downs.
May this valentine month be filled
with so much love that it overflows to
all the rest of the year.

Let's gamble on getting sewer money


EDITOR:
Gambling. Where would the
world be without gambling? Think
about it.
If it wasn't for bingo, pull tabs,
poker machines, raffles, cake walks,
etc., many of the clubs, churches and
other organizations wouldn't be able
to exist. If it weren't for the various
state lotteries, our schools would be
in worse shape financially than they
are now. Think of the millions of
dollars those lotteries have generated
through the years and continue to do
so to this date.
Thousands of people find
employment in casinos throughout
the country, and even though gam-
bling has made paupers of some, it
has made of millionaires out of oth-
ers. Who among us hasn't got in on
a Super Bowl or World Series pool,
put money on a horse during the
Kentucky Derby, played bongo, got
a friendly game of Texas hold 'em or
taken a trip to Vegas, Reno, Atlantic
City, horse tracks, dog tracks or any
other gambling meccas in or out of
the country?
Gambling is everywhere, and
although it is illegal in some aspects,
I'll bet there aren't too many politi-
cians, clerics, law enforcement per-
sonnel or just common everyday
people that haven't gambled in some


fashion or another at some point in
their lives.
Here's my point. I propose
Florida start a new lottery. They
could call it the Monroe County
Central Sewer System Sweepstakes,
with all the proceeds going to help
defray the costs of the half-billion-
dollar sewer system being forced
upon us here in the Keys. That way,
the thousands of Florida residents
and tourists alike who come to the
Keys and leave a "deposit" will be
helping to pay for its removal.
They could have the usual -
Fantasy Five, Mega Bucks, etc., and
instead of the very popular Power
Ball they could call it the Power
Flush for an added jackpot. It could
generate millions!
They could have scratch-off tick-
ets that would read as such, "Match
any three symbols and win prize
stated." The payoffs could be shown
below: Toilet plungers - Free tick-
et; toilet brushes - $1; urinals -
$5; toilet seats - $10; toilet bowls
- $50; vacuum pits - $100; state
seals - $500; Gov. Charlie Crist -
$5,000.
I suspect this idea will end up in
the toilet like most of my ideas, but
at least it deserves a thought or two.

Marathon's chickens could be a blessing


EDITOR:
Giant pythons swimming to the Keys
from the Everglades made national news
last week, but chickens invading Marathon
made the front page of the Keynoter.
Maybe the pythons could be the answer to
those that see the chickens as a problem.
I scoured the paper looking for more
information on the pythons but couldn't
find anything. Hopefully that was just
another example of the news media's over-
exaggeration of the facts. I would hate to
see pythons eating all the chickens; we
might need to start farming them again
when there's nothing else left.
Remember the pictures of the long food


lines of the Great Depression? We seem to be
heading in that direction, so we should be
looking at the chickens as life-saving gifts.
And to those who think the chickens and
roosters are noisy? I have to close the doors
and windows and go into the back bedroom
just to make a phone call because of the
deafening noise from all the air traffic around
here. Now that's a sore subject for me.
I'd much rather hear cock-a-doodle-doo
than the roar of the jets and helicopters all
day long.
God save the chickens! (is it OK to say
God?)

Consolidate government offices


EDITOR:
Have we collectively lost our iiiinds?
Where are the watchdogs? All of us must
pay taxes whether we rent or own.
Inevitably we all must pay to have govern-
ment function. Our choice is what level of
government service do we want, absolutely
need and we can afford.
In the past 15 years in the Keys, our
amount of government office space has
more than doubled while our population
growth has been in slow motion. Adding to
this doubling is the pending opening of the
Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural
Center in Key Largo and the recent comple-
tion of the new Freeman Justice Center in
Key West.
Now we are about to embark on the
building of a 41,000-square-foot Key West
city hall and some in Key Largo have
announced they want to be once again con-
sider incorporation, and I suppose a new
city hall there will be needed and Marathon
is working out of a set of city hall trailers
and wants to build a city hall and are you
beginning to get the picture?
Even in this time of economic distress,
we are planning to put yet more govern-
ment air-conditioned space under roof. Has


anyone elected ever thought about consoli-
dating our county and city services?
Inconvenient, you say? I say convenience at
what price? Politically impractical, you
say? I say the economic reality of the bur-
densome cost of government must be rec-
ognized and the load must be lightened.
Better government does not particularly
come from bigger buildings with all the
bells and whistles. And remember, building
the new structures is only part of the ongo-
ing cost.
For county residents, adding to this bur-
den the ultimate cost of sewering the Keys,
which is about to come to roost on our
shoulders alone, raises the,bar for those
struggling to live here. As we proceed to
build more, we will have eliminated the
ability of hundreds or even thousands of our
current resident's ability to stay here.
Again, Monroe County is not and will
not grow at any appreciable rate. It cannot
therefore support nor justify more structures
nor can its taxpayers afford the bill for run-
ning the air-conditioning even if not one
extra person is ever hired. By the way, build
it and government will fill it to capacity.

But Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson agreed with Gastesi
that a new administration
requires a new voice in
Washington, D.C.
"This is something we should
have done a long time ago," he


said. "I know a lot of work has
been done in the past, but the bot-
tom line is in Washington and
Tallahassee, it's about relation-
ships."
Among the best known in the
state that Gastesi wants: South
Florida lobbyist Ron Book,
whose task will be to go after the
$200 million in state funding.
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 his childhood
growing up . in Tavernier.
Chidlow served as finance direc-
tor for the Democratic National
Committee from early 2006
through the 2008 presidential
election.
The total cost for the lobbyists
would be $20,000 per month.
That full-court press would cost
each stakeholder - if all six
were in - $3,333 a month.
Several participants, includ-
ing Chidlow, mentioned that just
$10 billion of the more than $800
billion stimulus package is dedi-
cated to wastewater projects
nationwide. It's a small pie to
fight over, he said.
The next step is for the stake-
holders to take Gastesi's propos-
al back to their respective board,
council or commission for
approval - or rejection.

A county government building
with a waterfront park facing Key
Largo's Tarpon Basin officially
opens for business Monday.
Ceremonies commemorating
the Murray E. Nelson Govern-
ment and Cultural Center begin
at 3 p.m. at the mile marker 102.5
bayside site.
"It's a beautiful building so we
hope people come by to see it,"
said Deborah Frederick, assistant
county administrator.
The open lobby design fea-
tures work by local artists
Stephen Frink, Alan Maltz, John
David Hawver, Cris Sandifer and
Xavier Cortada.
A park at the former location
of The Quay restaurant in Key
Largo offers shaded picnic tables
with a vista of sailboats anchored
in the basin.
S ,. Monroe County commission-
ers and County Administrator
Roman Gastesi will speak at the
opening of the center, named after
the Upper Keys county commis-
sioner who died in 2006, during
his second term. Local musician
David Feder will perform.
The County Commission holds
its first meeting at the Nelson cen-
ter at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
The project was started in
early 2007 with a budget of $10.8
million.
That was later scaled back to
$10.4 million in a cost-cutting


move, but unexpected costs
could push the final cost close to
the original mark, said Jerry
Barnett, county director of
Facilities Development.
"Because things are still going
on, we don't know the final exact
cost for a while yet," he said.
Frederick said Monroe
County will be able to reap some'
cost savings by moving offices
into the new two-story concrete
building, designed with Key
West-inspired architectural
details, including peaked, metal-
clad roofs and lap siding.
"We've already been able to
give up some leases on private
property by moving offices to the
center," she said.
Planning offices moved from
the Plantation Key Government
Center will allow court operations
to move into the second floor of
the county's Ellis Building near
the courthouse, she said.
The Nelson center's 250-seat-
auditorium is designed to accom-
modate broadcasts of County
Commission meetings, and is
intended to serve as a center for
cultural events. Some enhance-
ments for the theater were dropped
in the budget cuts, however.
Because of reductions in
county staff, the center has a
small number of offices available
on the second floor. Those spaces
likely will be rented to state agen-
cies or suitable nonprofit groups,
Frederick said.

they knocked on the door and
Robert Stevens, 27, answered. As

for air service
BY DAVID BALL
dball@keysrepoter.com

Directors of the Key Largo
emergency medical services dis-
trict are telling Monroe County
they don't want to pay for the
county's air anibulance service.
Monday, the district's board
approved a resolution rejecting a
county request that Key Largo
join a new taxing district to fund
TraumaStar. The air ambulance
operated by the Sheriff's Office
costs the county more than $2
million a year.
District officials said they dis-
agree with how TraumaStar is
managed and said it is rarely used
in the Upper Keys.
Key Largo residents are


already part of the Upper Keys
Health Care Taxing District, which
has air ambulance agreements
with Miami-Dade County Air-
Rescue and LifeNet, a commercial
helicopter service on Stock Island
and in south Miami-Dade.
Sergio Garcia, chief of the
Key Largo Volunteer Fire
Department, said rejecting a
TraumaStar tax would not disrupt
air ambulance service in the
Upper Keys. Some who say it
will are using "scare tactics,"
Garcia said.
"The [fire] chief of Miami-
Dade County said there's no
chance they will ever stop bring-
ing that helicopter down here,"
Garcia said.
"They assured us that lime-
green helicopter would come
down to the Keys as long as it
was available."
At Monday's district board


meeting, representatives from the
Key Largo Chamber of Com-
merce and Island of Key Largo
Federation of Homeowners
Associations read resolutions
opposing the TraumaStar tax.
The district's commissioners
had little discussion before vot-
ing. But Commissioner Tom
Tharp criticized a recent decision
by the County Commission to not
seek competing bids from other
potential air service providers to
potentially replace TraumaStar or
help lower the cost.
"I don't know how a commis-
sioner can look me in the eye and
say they have done due diligence
in determining the best economic
approach to the county when they
haven't done anything," Tharp
said.
The Miami-Dade Air Rescue
helicopter doesn't charge patients
for transport out of Monroe
County. LifeNet does bill
patients' insurance companies.


Monroe County bills patients for
TraumaStar service.
In November, 55 percent of
Keys voters supported a nonbind-
ing referendum for a tax to fund
TraumaStar. But none of the 10
voting districts in Key Largo and
Islamorada approved the measure.
The county's plan was to
charge property owners below
mile marker 95 twice as much -
up to $52.50 annually - as those
north of there, who would pay up
to $26.25.
County commissioners in
December began to create two tax-
ing districts for unincorporated
areas. Money collected would take
the place of county taxes that all
residents currently pay, at a rate of
$8 per $100,000 of taxable value.
Commissioners have dis-
cussed hiking the current $5,500
liftoff fee and $80-per-mile
charge for TraumaStar service, to
$10,000 plus $100 per mile, in
line with LifeNet charges.

The fire at Cheeca Lodge started in the thatch-roofed tiki at the'
lower corner of the big building.


A month and -a half ago, a
careless toss of a cigarette butt
onto a thatched roof at Cheeca
Lodge likely sparked a blaze that
tore through the resort's main
building, causing millions of dol-
lars in damage and closing the
resort indefinitely.
Now fire safety officials in the
Keys are taking a closer look at
how thatch-roof structures are
inspected and treated with the
latest fire-prevention measures.
Key Largo Volunteer Fire
Department Chief Sergio Garcia
said his department will start
handling some inspections in
conjunction with the county Fire


Zavalney, captain of the county
fire marshal's Fire Prevention
Bureau. "It's a challenge. It real-
ly is."
Zavalney said contractors
who install thatched roofs cur-
rently have to provide a notarized
letter attesting that fire retardants
were applied based on the manu-
facturers recommendation.
However, there is'no required
documentation that the retardant
is reapplied as it wears off over
time.
"Because there are so many
different products, different man-
ufacturers and many different
lifetimes of products, there's no
way to really know if the coating
is still functioning," Zavalney
said.
"You can't just do a visual
inspection, either," he added.
"The only way to know for sure
is the send a piece oft t hatch to
a lab and have it analyzed, and
that doesn't really happen."
Zavalney said although tragic,
the Cheeca Lodge fire could act
as a wake-up call to Keys proper-
ty owners, especially commer-
cial property owners, who ulti-
mately are responsible for fol-
lowing all fire and life and safety
codes.
"I urge anybody that owns
property that has one of these
thatch tikis on there, residential
or commercial, to contact the
contractor or whoever put the
coating on there to find out when
it was done and how long its
lifespan is," he said. "A lot of
times people don't think it could
happen to them, until it does."

Marshal's Office, which is

Garcia said he, Islamorada
and Marathon Fire Chief William
Wagner and county Fire Marshal
Wally Romero are also looking at
drafting ordinances to amend
local fire codes, requiring prop-
erty owners to apply for permits
proving any thatch structures
have proper fire-retardant coat-
ings.
Such ordinances might also
require reapplication of those
coatings over the thatch's life-
time.

Anti-corruption laws up for vote


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Two laws aimed at curbing
corruption in Monroe County are
up for adoption Wednesday.
One would establish a local
whistle-blower law, which would
protect - and even reward -
those who report alleged corrup-
tion. The other would ban last-
minute add-ons to County
Commission meeting agendas.
New State Attorney Dennis
Ward proposed adopting the leg-
islation at January's County
Commission meeting in Key
West, and Commissioner Kim
Wigington has put the proposed
laws on the agenda for discus-
sion.
"I wanted to put them on there
to see how the other commission-
ers feel about it," Wigington said.
A so-called false claims ordi-
nance Wigington sponsored,
aimed at curbing fraudulent
claims against the county, is also
up for adoption at Wednesday's
regular meeting in Key Largo.
The whistle-blower, law is
meant to encourage county
employees with knowledge of
unlawful activity by the county or
an independent contractor to
report the violation. The employ-
ee would be rewarded if his or her
information leads to the recovery
of public money.
Wigington said she's in favor.
of the law, but not paying
employees "for doing the right
thing."
"They need the utmost protec-
tion when they come forward,"
she said, but "I don't want to set

Higgs safety rises


Group meets
to hammer out
beach issues
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Round two of the Higgs
Beach working group's bout
against homeless people tarnish-
ing the vitality of the county-
owned parcel took-place Friday


in Key West.
At their last meeting, initiated
by County Commissioner Heather
Carruthers and Key West City
Commissioner Teri Johnston,
those concerned about the beach
identified aggressive homeless
people as the primary obstacle
keeping Higgs Beach from being
a first-class destination.
Carruthers suggested -the
county could afford to post a
Sheriff's Office deputy full-time
there.
"The thinking is that the coun-
ty might have some discretionary
funds. We can afford it from now
until we get to the budgeting" in
June or July, Carruthers said.

"We're looking at short-term
solutions - how can we get peo-
ple feeling safe on the beach
tomorrow."
Richard Hatch, owner of the
Blue Heaven restaurant in
-Bahama Village a.nd as of
October owner of the Higgs
Beach restaurant Salute, suggest-
ed a retired police officer or other
community aide could fill the
post at a lesser cost.
But Carruthers pointed out
that anyone other than an active
.law enforcement official would
not have the power to enforce
crimes or code violations.
Key West resident Janice
Nicowski, who lives on Casa
Marina Court facing Higgs
Beach, was involved in the
Friends of Higgs Beach commit-
tee from 1999 to 2001 and said
the dialogue was sort of a broken
record.
"It seems to me like we're
starting back at square one,"
Nicowski said. "Hopefully this
time something happens."
Carruthers did announce the
people and groups that will con-
tribute to any future plans to revi-
talize the Beach as part of a gov-
ernment/community group.
They include schools Super-
intendent Randy Acevedo and
members of various school stu-
dent councils representing chil-

New ROGO still far off


Commission
to extend
moratorium
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Key West City Com-
mission meets Wednesday to
likely extend the city's emer-
gency zoning-in-progress desig-
nation for six more months.
In February 2008, Monroe
County Circuit Court Judge
Wayne Miller ruled that the city's
rate-of-growth ordinance, under
which building permits were
issued, expired and was no
longer valid. The city immediate-
ly invoked zoning-in-progress,
which is essentially a moratori-
um that puts a stop to new devel-
opment with the exception of
workforce housing.
Since then, the city's Planning
Department staff has attempted
to rewrite the ordinance but has-
n't received approval from the
state Department of Community
Affairs, which must authorize
changes in land-use rules in an
Area of Critical State Concern.
The Florida Keys are designated
such an area.
"We're not procrastinating on
- it," Commissioner Bill Verge
said. "It's the DCA. Our hands
are kind of tied."
The zoning-in-progress is
slated to last six months, so it
would expire in the middle of

said, "If we get something done
in the next month" that's
approved by DCA, "we could
pass it right away."
ROGO dictated where and
what kind of development can be
allowed based on how long it
takes to clear the island during a
hurricane evacuation; it's
required by law.
Changes to the expired ordi-
nance suggested by the city's
planners are largely administra-
tive and serve to streamline
ROGO's building permit alloca-
tion system. The changes stem
from several community work-
shops conducted last year and a
draft was presented to the
Planning Board in December.
"DCA called me and said that
had some questions about com-
prehensive plan consistency,"
said Amy Kimball-Murley, city
planning director.
"They didn't seem to have
major problems with the ordi-
nance as it was revised; they
were looking more at bigger pic-
ture issues. We're a little disap-
pointed that some of these issues

Ed Castle, project manager for
Weiler Engineering, the city's
wastewater engineer, said
Marathon should be proud .of
what is a difficult award to win.
Castle said the city was rec-
ommended for the award because
of its foresight in adopting
Weiler's plan to move forward
with a stormwater design that
saved the city about half the cost
to install it separate from sewer
piping.
Marathon is essentially com-
pleting two projects at once,
installing stormwater and central
sewer system piping at the same
time. The total project cost is esti-
mated at roughly $80 million.
According to the EPA's Web
site, Marathon is utilizing
CWSRF funds to implement a
comprehensive approach to
wastewater management, includ-
ing the construction of an innova-
tive vacuum wastewater collec-
tion system. Because the vacuum
collection system is water-tight,
the trench for the collection sys-
tem will be used as an exfiltration
treatment system for stormwater.
Castle said an exfiltration
trench is approximately 5 feet
wide and 7 feet deep, filled with
rock inside of filtered fabric. In
the middle is an 18-inch perforat-
ed pipe that drains stormwater.
Also, Geographic Information
System (GIS) mapping of the
wastewater/stormwater system is
being done in conjunction with
construction. Once completed,
the city will use GIS asset map-
ping data to help develop an asset
management system.
Construction of the city's cen-
tral sewer system is well under-
way and expected to be complete
shortly after the state-mandated
July 2010 deadline to comply
with advanced wastewater treat-
ment standards.

lack of commercial electricity for
No Name Key.
+ The proposed false-claims
ordinance is aimed at curbing
false and fraudulent claims
against the county.
The ordinance is also meant to
fend off frivolous lawsuits and
would establish penalties for
defrauding the county. Under
Commissioner Kim Wigington's
proposal, whoever sues to make
someone accountable for filing a
false'claim is awarded 5 percent
of damages if anything is award-
ed and if the county tries it; and
25 percent if the courity's attor-
neys are not involved.
* Another hearing is planned
to consider rescinding a land
development regulation that
would allow sewers and support
utilities to developed properties
in the Coastal Barrier Resource


System.
In December, the state Depart-
ment of Conmmunity Affairs
rejected an LDR calling for the
island to be sewered without first
providing commercial electricity.
DCA 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 43 homes on No
Name Key are powered by solar.
panels, generators or other
means.
On Jan. 26, the County
Commission decided not to
appeal DCA's decision. It will
pursue a land-use-plan amend-
ment in six months, after the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
has a chance to submit a recom-
mendation on sewering the
island.
The County Commission
meets Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the
Murray E. Nelson Government
and Cultural Center in Key
Largo.


CRB chief: Talk to us


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Residents of the Bahama
Village neighborhood in Key
West received an invitation
Thursday night: Feel free to con-
tact the Citizen Review Board.
That's the message the inde-
pendent Key West police over-
sight board sent at a community
gathering Thursday night.
' CRB Executive Director
Stephen Muffler told the
Keynoter that Bahama Village
residents might be able to utilize
the board because the majority
of police/resident interactions in
the city occur in that neighbor-
hood.
"We don't really have an
inner city here but Bahama
Village is economically chal-
lenged," Muffler said, which
leads to increased crime such as
prostitution and drug dealing.
"The more police interaction
in any community tends to result
in more dissatisfied .interactions.
A lot of the issues are discour-
tesy." But Muffler said that's


part of the job description in law
enforcement.
"They're doing their job," he
said. "They're attacking a prob-
lem of open drug dealing.".
Bob Kelly, who has lived on
and off in Bahama Village since
1999, said that on any given day,
he can drive down Petronia
Street or Olivia Street and see
people "who very probably are
doing something illegal."
"It's something you can't
help but recognize as something
that's there open and regularly.
But it goes on everywhere in the
city."
Kelly said that in his experi-
ences witnessing and hearing
about police interaction with
Bahama Village residents,
"There has been an inconsisten-
cy in the way the Police
Department has approached the
problem in Bahama Village"
with what he called "aggressive
approaches."
Muffler said his board is set
up to hear just such complaints.

Body found, death
ruled 'suspicious'

The body of a 43-year-old
man was found Friday at the
Oceanside Marina on Stock
Island, and detectives with the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
say the man died "under suspi-


cious circumstances."
He wasn't identified by press
time Friday.
The white man's body was
found aboard a boat called Flo to
Me. The boat, a 43-foot, Trojan,
has reportedly been docked at the
Oceanside Marina for perhaps as
long as a couple of years.
Deputy Becky Herrin said the


body was discovered after agents
from the Federal Bureau of
Investigation responded to that
location to do a "welfare check."
They smelled an odor coming
from the boat and found the man
dead inside. They notified the
Sheriff's Office at 10:30 a.m.
An autopsy is planned for
today.

Chamber-sponsored
biz university
starts next week
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

School will soon be back in
session at the Greater Marathon
Chamber Business University.
A streamlined and more-
affordable 2009 version of the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce-sponsored set of
courses begins Feb. 19 at the
Florida Keys Community College
campus at Marathon High School,
with a focus on marketing, sales,
performance management and
finance.
Realizing the state of the econ-
omy, chamber Executive Director
Daniel Samess has lowered prices
to keep up attendance, and also
condensed course material so peo-
ple learn more in less time.
"We had good attendance, but
it waned a little bit toward the end
of the year. People were realizing
it cost them a half a day," says
Samess of last year's Business
University. He says the chamber
nan-owed the focus this year to
topics that drew the most interest
last year, and best fit the current
economic climate.
Chamber members can regis-
ter for individual classes for $50
each or the full semester for $350.
That's the same price as last year,
but this time around it buys
admission for up to five people.
Heading up the marketing
department will be John Bartus
and Mona McGraw. Bartus is a
longtime Marathon resident
who's had his hand in every
aspect of the business world:
He's a business owner, he's done
radio and broadcast work, helped
found The Weekly Newspapers
and is a past president of the
chamber's board of directors.
Bartus said in this economy
it's vital for businesses experi-
encing decreased revenues to
stretch the advertising dollar.
"When you have a business
and you need to attract busi-
ness...you have to make sure your
ad money is being spent where
you should be" spending it,
Bartus said.
McGraw is the owner and co-
founder of NuRelm Inc., a com-
nanv that educates other business-


es on effective Internet marketing
strategies. Mona has a master's in
business administration and two
undergraduate degrees in market-
ing and English.
One focus of McGraw's class-
es will be Google ad words, a
pay-per-click online marketing
program offered through Google.
She said it's an affordable way
for small businesses to advertise,
especially in bad economic times.
"Businesses have to figure out
how to do more with less and
online marketing is more cost-
effective," she'told the Keynoter.
McGraw also emphasizes the
importance of a top notch Web
site in today's competitive busi-
ness world.
"It's gone from being a 'nice to
have' to being a 'must have.' You
can't have a simple online post-
card," she said, "you have to have
an engaging, interactive Web site."
Sales classes will be taught by
Britt Myers, president of the
chamber and also manager of the
Marathon branch of First State
Bank. Myers is also the former
owner, editor and operator of the
Georgia-based Lanier Magazine, a
business and lifestyle publication.
Myers said no matter what
your position in a company,
you're always selling - whether
it is image or actual advertising.
He says his classes are more of a
sharing of ideas.
"People in the community get.
asked to teach these classes, but we
get in there and have discussion
because people bring experience to
the table," he said. Samess will be
teaching performance manage-
ment classes aimed at hiring well
and retaining those emolovees. as


well as emphasizing customer
service in a company's culture.
"You hire people and they don't
last for whatever reason," Samess
said. "A lot of times they're forced
to quit because they're not being
managed properly."
Josh Mother and Dave
Collins, partners in a local con-
sulting finn that helps businesses
manage and leverage finances,
will teach finance classes.
Mother, like Bartus, has been
involved in several different
aspects of the business world,
including: 13 years in commercial
and residential lending (in
Marathon at the former Marine
Bank and as owner of Haven
Funding), radio show host, finance
columnist and general manager at
Sombrero Country Club.
Mothner said he got involved
with the chamber's Business
University when he saw the
beginnings of a nationwide credit
crunch last March. He said small
businesses were struggling to get
loans "for anything," and he saw
the opportunity to help.
"When money starts getting
tight, you need to capture all the
dollars you can," Mothner said,
adding the Colner Group has
helped several local clients
accomplish that goal.
All Business University class-
es are at the Florida Keys
Community College campus at
Marathon High School. Classes
are noon to 1 p.m. beginning Feb.
19 and running through May 28.
For more information or to sign
up, contact Charlotte Quinn at the
chamber at 743-5417 or e-mail

They opened a store in

The pies from the Key
West Key Lime Pie Co. won
four blue ribbons at last
year's National Pie
Championships, and are now
sold-at Macy's in Manhattan
and a number of specialty
shops across the United

All pies are made from
scratch at the Big Pine store,
and will continue to be, with
the Cudjoe store serving as a
second retail operation, and
helping to give the pie com-
pany U.S. 1 exposure.
Brush said he looked at
places to rent in Key West,
but couldn't find anything
affordable.
At the Cudjoe Key store,
at mile marker 22.8 next to

Fort Taylor is a massive
trapezoidal fort of red brick .
built near Key West's west-
ern-most point. It's now the
centerpiece of Fort Zachary
Taylor Historic State Park,
with coral dust bike paths
weaving around its girth. If
you've ridden on those paths,
or walked around the grounds
outside the fort, you can't
help wonder about its history,
and how it came to be here on
this small island.
Fort Taylor was built start-
ing in 1845, the same year
that Florida became a state.
Money had been appropriated

Fort Taylor and Fort Jefferson

Tortugas, in order to secure
American interests in the Gulf
of Mexico. Key West was
perfectly placed at the
entrance to the gulf, and
troops stationed there could
keep a watch on, and, if nec-
essary, stop ships heading
north toward vulnerable sea-
ports in Texas, Louisiana,
Alabama and Mississippi.
The decision to establish a
U.S. military presence at Key
West was in part-due to the
lobbying over many years by
John Whitehead and John
Simonton, who'd bought Key
West for $2,000 from a man
in St. Augustine and envi-
sioned the island as an ideal
place for a military outpost.
According to Harry Smid,
park services specialist at
Fort Taylor, the bricks used to
build the fort came by ship
from Pensacola and from
Alabama - 7 million of them
in all. The fort was more or
less completed by 1860 or
1861, just in time for the start
of the Civil War.
"It was extremely impor-
tant from the Union perspec-
tive," says Smid of Fort
Taylor. Neither Fort Taylor
nor Fort Jefferson were ever
attacked by Confederate
forces, but the Union Navy,
says Smid, had a blockading
squadron stationed at Fort
Taylor that enforced a block-
ade of. the entrance to the
gulf, thereby cutting the flow
of supplies into the
Confederacy.
Civil War Heritage Days
starts with a once-a-year-only
candlelight tour of the fort on
Friday night.
On Saturday, Feb. 14, there
will be a traditional military
parade down Duval Street to
the fort, and a sea battle
between historic tall ships,
representing Confederate and
Union interests, starting at
2:30 p.m. in the waters just
west of the fort.
A re-created court trial of
the captain of a captured
blockade-running vessel fol-
lows at 4:30 p.m. During the
Civil War, blockade runners
captured by the Union Navy
were forced to anchor in front
of the fort, and the trial is
based on court documents
from an 1862 case tried in
Key West.
For the first time this year, .
Saturday's events will include
an evening Valentine's Civil
War Days Dance, with a band
playing music from the 1860s


and a dance caller to teach
everyone the steps to dances
from that era. The dance
starts at 7 p.m. Admission is
free. Costumes in the style of
the 1860s are requested but
not required.
Events on Sunday include
an arms inspection, patrol
skirmish, raising and lower-
ing of the colors, and living-


history demonstrations.
Civil War Heritage Days is
presented by the Friends of
Fort Taylor, a nonprofit citi-
zen support organization.
Fort Zachary Taylor State
Park and the fort can be
accessed between 8 a.m. and
sunset daily from the gate at
the end of Southard Street,
past Thomas Street. Daily

'Meshuggah-Nuns'


on Plantation Key


Key Players
stage Off-Broadway
ecumenical hit
, By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

If you've heard of the
Broadway musical "Nunsense,"
then you know something of
what to expect when The Key
Players present "Meshuggah-
Nuns: The Ecumenical
Nunsense" starting Feb. 19 at
San Pedro Catholic Church.
In "Meshuggah-Nuns," a
spin-off . of the original
"Nunsense," four sisters find
themselves on board a cruise
ship called the Golden Delicidus
on a "Faith of All Nations"
cruise. The cruise is to feature a
performance of "Fiddler on the
Roof," but when all the actors in
the show except for Tevye get
seasick, the nuns agree to take
their places, and entertain pas-
sengers with a musical show
stocked with Jewish and
Catholic jokes.
Tom Butler directs The Key
Players in "Meshuggah-Nuns,"
to run for two weekends.
Geri Luer stars at the
Reverend Mother, Cindy


Hollingsworth as Sister Robert
Ann, Lisa Wetzel as Sister
Hubert, Kathy Miller as Sister
Amnesia and Paul Christian as
Howard Liszt.
Most of the show is sung, and
a live band performs on stage as
part of the show. The band is led
by Susan Bazin, who also plays
synthesizer. Ken McQueen is on
the piano, John Baxter on horn
and Brad Shank on drums.
Tickets to the show are $20
and can be purchased at the door
or in advance at Tropical Arts
and Crafts at mile marker 101.5,
oceanside, at the UPS Store in
the Waldorf Plaza at mile mark-
er 99.6, oceanside, and at Cover
to Cover Books in Tavernier
Towne, at mile marker 91, gulf-
side.
Show dates are Feb. 19, 20,
21, 26, 27, and 28, with all per-
formances starting at 8 p.m.
Tickets to the opening night
performance of "Meshuggah-
Nuns" on Thursday, Feb. 19 are
$25 and include a wine and hors
d'oeuvres reception at 7 p.m.
and a "meet the cast" event after
the show. Proceeds will benefit
the Florida Keys Council of the
Arts.
San Pedro Catholic Church is
on Plantation Key, at mile mark-
er 89, gulfside.

Tennis starts

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Still aglow from a dazzling
autumn of tennis season at her
"other school" up North, senior
Gabby Scammacca - her
strokes polished, her confidence
brimming - has returned to
lead the Key West High School
team into the new season.
The Conchs' No. 1 girls sin-
gles player as a junior,
Scammacca will be in that slot
again when Key West plays at
home against Marathon in the
season opener at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
"She's stronger, faster and her
game has improved," said coach
Paul Findlay.
"I've gotten to where I can
aim anywhere and hit the shot,"
Scammacca said Thursday,
intent on hitting balls despite a
lingering cold. "Paul has helped
me with my serve, and now I
have to concentrate on not dou-
ble-faulting."

Dolphins and a ticket to the next
round of the District 16-2A tour-

"We just kind of stood there;
we were stunned," coach Kevin
Freeman said.
The Dolphins looked to be in


good shape after a Nyran Ross
layup put them up 62-60 with
eight seconds remaining in over-
time. But the Victors made a
jump shot with two seconds
remaining to tie the game.
That left just two seconds for
the Dolphins to get a shot off,
with no timeouts and the length


of the court to go. With Travis
Leachman and Kenyatta Scott
fouled out of the game, Freeman
-decided to run a play to get a
game-winning shot attempt off.
But the inbound play didn't
work and Ross was forced to put
the ball in play or risk turning
the ball over. The pass was inter-
cepted and the Victors sank a
three-pointer from well behind
the three-point arc for the win.

Gulliver rolls over Canes


Softball team
loses opener
to powerhouse
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Lady Hurricanes only
made a few mistakes in the
Coral Shores' softball season
opener Wednesday, but that
proved too many against


powerhouse Gulliver Prep.
Defensive bobbles in the
first inning of the first game
help stake Gulliver to an
early 4-0 lead that only got
worse en route to a 12-0
final.
"We expected to do a bet-
ter job of challenging
Gulliver," said Paul Grewe,
co-coach with Mike Young.
"The biggest disappointment
was that we didn't make


plays that could have kept us
in it."
Gulliver, a 22-win region-
al finalist last spring, relied
on the arm of junior pitcher
Sara Buchholz -to hold the
capable Cane lineup hitless.
Coming off a strong 14-
win- season themselves, the
Hurricanes still expect to be
competitive in District 16-
3A ranks.

Canes stumble in opener


Lacrosse team
falls to Raiders,
Ransom's next
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


. A young Coral Shores boys
lacrosse team will rebound from
its season-opening loss at
Gulliver Prep this week, says
the team's new head coach.
"Playing our first game of the
season against one of the top
teams in the state is quite a chal-
lenge," said Bamaby Rich after
the 23-1 loss at Gulliver.
"Our men worked really
hard. There are no issues with
the effort," he said. "They
played a great game with every-
thing they had."
Austin Armstrong, moving
from last season's spot as an
attacker to goalie, made 22
saves against the relentless
Gulliver pressure. "That's
incredible, a big day for any
goalie," Rich said.
Devon Morris scored the first
Hurricane goal of the season.
Results from Friday's sched-
uled home opener against Pines


Charter were pending at press
time.
The Canes expect to make
strides from last year's one-win
season.
"One of the best things about
this season is that we're a real
wild card," said Rich. "Nobody
knows what we've got coming.
"As the guys get more com-
fortable with the system, I think
we're going to surprise a lot of
teams."
The 36-player squad relies on
its returning seniors - Ian
O'Hara, Alex Stoll, Eric Waite
and Chris Rini - for veteran
leadership, along with experi-
enced juniors Benny Spaulding
and Jerry Renfroe.
Coral Shores will rely on its
strong sophomore class, players
who were able to gain signifi-
cant varsity field time last year.
That group includes attackers
Brett Berry, Charles Porter and
Morris; midfielders Josh
Redmond, Tyler Hickory and
Matt Perry; and defenders Brian
Lindback and Ben Ignacio.
Armstrong takes over in the
net from graduated all-district
goalie D.J. Farrn.

Rich was named head coach
after spending four years as a
volunteer assistant coach and
associate head coach.
Rejoining the program as
offensive coordinator and assis-
tant coach is Mathew Hall, an
offensive -standout who helped
establish Coral Shores lacrosse.
Hall went on to play for Florida
State University, and steps in to
help the Hurricanes during a
break in his college studies.

Canes play home matches
against Miami Country Day,
with JV at 4:30 p.m. and varsity

"Everybody out here has got
a lot of heart," Rich said. "It's a
real brotherhood. We're going to
have a pretty great year."

now 32-13 in two seasons under
Hayes, who rejuvenated a long-
dormant program.
"I'm really proud of our
girls," Hayes said. "They all
hustled and gave their all. There
was a closeness on and off the
court."
Key West had to play its post-
season games without freshman
standout Shaniya Watson, who
was dropped from the team
because of grades. "She was a
big loss," said Hayes. "She can
play all five positions, and play
them well."
Watson is expected to be back
next season and, with Storr (who
scored 20 or more points in*10
consecutive games) and Mathis,
be part of a solid nucleus that
will be joined by players from
this season's JV team.
In addition to Arrazola, the
Conchs will lose seniors Daphne
Barnett, Fran Hicks, Kim Jones,
Chelsea Zinser and Cassandra
McGee.

Gabby Scammacca brings plenty of experience back to the
Conch tennis team. She flourished while playing in upstate
New York.

located, she went 14-0 in the
regular season. "I was the first
girl there in 32 years to go unde-
feated at the No. 1 position," she
said. She went on to the state
tournament before she lost -
finishing 17-2.
After the Conchs' season
ended last spring, Scammacca
continued to put in three to four
hours a day on the court, in addi-
tion to swimming, running and
lifting weights. Since returning
to Key West, she has played at
Bayview Park against men
coaches and against Findlay's
23-year-old tennis pro/model
son Ya nn.
Scammacca's tennis future is
focused on Flagler College, in
Saint Augustine, where she
already has been accepted.
"I've been visiting there since
I was in the seventh grade," she
said. "Now that I don't have to
worry about college, I just want
to have fun - but I'd love to go


undefeated."
To do that, she will have to
get by the elite stars from the
Miami area private schools; she
lost to a Gulliver Prep player, 8-
2, in last year's district tourna-
ment. She said some of the play-
ers she faced in New York had
Gulliver-type talent, with many
of her matches going three sets.
Scammacca will be joined on
the girls team by senior Rachel
Walker, junior Raquel Stockton
and sophomores Rae Lark and
Alicia Garcia, all of whom
played last season. Three fresh-
men - Tori Fitzsimmons, Dora
Demaria and Bridget Behmke
- and sophomore Sara Maliki
are also on the team.
The boys team will feature
juniors Justin Tomita and Nick
Scammacca (Gabby's brother),
who will battle for the No. 1 sin-
gles spot. Also on the team are
seniors - Terry Williams and
Blake Oropeza, sophomores Ben
Thiesen and Cole Matarazzo,
and freshmen Henry Schultz,
Justin Poon and John Quinn.


Edison fries Key West


Basketball
Conchs done,
end at 11-12
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The season, which had begun
for the Key West High School
boys basketball team the first day
of December with a 64-45 loss to
Edison, ended Wednesday night
with a 64-44 loss to Edison, this
time in the District 16-4A tourna-
ment at Belen Jesuit in Miami.
Not much difference.
The Conchs, who have now
gone five years without winning
the opening game of the tourna-
ment, trailed by only 32-29 at the
half - and then threw Ihe game
away.
"Lazy passes," said coach
Paul Davis.
On their first possession of
the third quarter, the Conchs'
inbounds pass was intercepted
and turned into a layup. Two
more turnovers followed, with
Edison converting both for a 38-
29 lead. After that, Key West
never got closer than seven
points. With Christian Stewart,
who had been a force inside, out
with foul trouble, the Red

Raiders continued attacking the
basket.
"Edison had two weeks to
prepare for the game," Davis
said. "They pressed and they
hustled. I knew it was going to be
tough."
Sophomore point guard Keith
Valdez led the Conchs with 21
points, ending a season in which
he made a state-record 44 free
throws in a row. Jycorae Mason
scored 13 and Vladimyr Sibera,


in his last game, scored seven. ,
Key West finished with an 11-"
12 record (with one victory by
forfeit), its best under Davis,
whose four-year record is 32-62.
The Conchs got off to a 6-3 start
but flattened out after Arthur
Adams, their first legitimate shot
blocker in years, became aca.-.
demically ineligible.
Still, with everyone back next
season except Sibera and Josh
Berkenmeyer, Davis said, "I see
the light at the end of the tunnel."

Tennis Fins challenge selves


New coaches
institute
new strategy
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

If you're on the court for
the Marathon High. School
tennis team this season,
you've earned your spot.
New coaches Chris Bull
and Nicole Berger have insti-
tuted a "challenge ladder" sys-
tem by which players earn
their spot in the girls and boys
starting five.
Bull, who will be coaching
the girls team, said he expects
to see good results from the
in-team competition.
"They heed to earn the
spots," he said. "We held a
preseason round-robin tourna-
ment where they played each
other and they. were seeded."
The players now have until
.the first day of the season to
challenge someone up to three
positions above them. A win
means you take over that per-


son's spot. When the season
begins, players can challenge
up to two spots ahead of them
and must defeat that person
twice to move up.
"Individuals have to have
that will to win and there has
to be competition on the
team," Bull said.
He takes over a girls team
that finished 14-4 last year
after a winless 2007 season
and narrowly missed advanc-
ing to the regional Class 1A
tournament. The team's top
five from that squad return.
The team will be led by
sophomore standout Marissa
Brossard, as well as senior
Michele Bellevue and her sis-
ter Rose, a sophomore who
transferred to Marathon from
Haiti last-year. No. 2 player
Angela Farello and Kelsey
Wonderlin round out the start-
ing five.
The boys will be led by
three seniors: Johnny
Lancaster, Kerry Wonderlin
and Ricardo Dominguez.
Berger said she expects them


to be especially strong doubles
players.
They "are really taking a
leadership role and keeping
the team in line; that makes
my job a whole lot easier,"
Berger said. "Our entire team
has really improved."
Bull was complimentary of
outgoing coach Mark Hooper,
who resigned after nine sea-
sons coaching both the boys
and girls teams.
"I've taken over many pro-
grams sports-related and this
was by far in the best position
of any of them," he said. The
teams will now have separate
coaches, both with a wealth of
experience.
Bull played high school
tennis in Maryland and was
once ranked fourth in the state
in doubles. Berger, a pro at
Club Duck Key, played
Division II tennis in Michigan
before moving to the Keys.
The teams are scheduled to
open their season with a visit
to Key West High School
Tuesday at 3 p.m.

especially for the first game,"
Grewe said. "They'd already
played two or, three games,
and we're just starting."
Veteran pitcher Holly
Given pitched well against the
Raiders but Gulliver seemed
to take advantage of every
extra runner put aboard by a
defensive lapse.
"If your pitcher has to
throw to all these additional
batters because you didn't get
the outs, it starts to add up late
in the game," Grewe said.
Courtney Molnar returned
at catcher to anchor the other
half of the Hurricane battery,
while Michelle Sexton played
a strong game at shortstop.
Andrea Cockerham- ran
down several long shots by
Gulliver in centerfield,
flanked by Brittany Baker in
left and Amanda Wahbe in
right.

Lauren Sanchez moved to
third base, with Shelby Gentes
at first and Ashley Singleton
at second.
Coral Shotes graduated
three regulars from last year's
squad and saw another switch
to track this season.
""Coach Young and I still
think we'll be pretty good,"
Grewe said, "but obviously we
have to tighten up on defense
and shake the termites out of
our aluminum bats."
The Hurricanes travel south
to Marathon High School for a
local rivalry game at 6 p.m.
Tuesday game.
Maritime Science and
Technology, scheduled to play
at Coral Shores yesterday,
dropped its softball program.
Coral Shores plays its next

hosting a game in Tavernier

Canes then play six straight at

Dolphins are stunned


DOLPHINS/ From 33

"In hindsight, we should have
done something different but we
had two of our best players out
and didn't know how many
opportunities we'd have,"
Ereeman said.
Leachman led the way with
21 points and seven rebounds,
while Ross scored a career high
18 points and had a steal. Scott
had seven points and five
rebounds.
The Dolphins' improved play
of late carried over into
Tuesday's game, with' the team
playing well early and leading
18-16 after the first quarter.
Leachman scored six points,
while Ross had five and Scott hit
a three..

But the Dolphins were
outscored 22-12 in the second
quarter and trailed 38-30 at the
half. Foul trouble took the team
out of its early rhythm, Freeman
said.
"We had 13 fouls to their six
in the first half, so we kind of
got in trouble there. We started
playing with our hands instead
of our feet and started moving,"
he said.
Marathon trailed by six after
three quarters, 48-42, but had
what Freeman called "one of our
better quarters all year" in the
fourth.
Scott and Ross hit three-
pointers, while Leachman made
seven of eight free throws in the
fourth and the Dolphins took the
lead with 16 seconds to go in the
game. But the Victors tied the
game at 59-59 with a late jumper
to force overtime.
"They see the potential that
they can have. These kids never
gave up; they kept fighting," he
said.
