GOOD TO GO: Maya Totman of Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue releases a Swainson's hawk, which
was found malnourished and dehydrated, and with diarrhea and infected eyes, on Boca
Grande Key. Wildlife officials deemed the bird up for release after it was treated with
fluids, eye ointment, antibiotics and other medications. It was released Feb. 14 from Big Pine Key.



New terminal



finally opens


Cost overruns,
constant delays

Today marks a beginning-, and
an end.
It's the beginning of a new day
at Key West International Airport
- and the end of what's been a
years-long, arduous process to
construct a new terminal at the
airport.
As time ticked down, county


The new $31.6 million Key
West airport terminal opens
today. To find out details
about it and see a floor
plan, pick up the Feb. 22
Keys Sunday or go to www
.KeysNet.com and click on
the Keys Sunday icon.

Airports Director Peter Horton
said Tuesday there was just one
small detail left to attend to
before the new terminal opened
today.
"We have to move an airline


operation that's been in one place
for the last 50 years to a new
location. That's no big deal,"
Horton said with a hint of sar-
casm.
That included setting up
Transportation Security
Administration equipment and
making sure computer lines from
the existing to the new terminal
are up and running.
The last departure from the
old terminal, an American Eagle
flight to Miami, was scheduled to
depart Key West at 8 p.m.
Tuesday.

Suspects'


details

Couple is held
in Keys homicide
in Salt Lake City
Keynoter Staff

Details started emerging
Tuesday about what the two
"persons of interest" in a Stock
Island murder did during their
time in Utah, where they were
taken into custody Saturday
night.
SJonathon Leo LeBaron, 32,
and Kristena Whitmore, 40, are
being held in'the Salt Lake City
jail. Sgt. Patricia Dally and
Detective Terry Smith from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
traveled to Salt Lake City on
Monday and were questioning
the pair.
On Feb. 13, an FBI agent
found the body of Richard
Gardner, 57, of Cape Coral
aboard the 43-foot Trojan Flow
to me at the Oceanside Marina on
Stock Island. The Sheriff's
Office says he was killed but
won't say how, though Col. Rick
Ramsay says there was an obvi-
ous struggle and the scene was
bloody.
- LeBaron and Whitmore were
picked up at a Motel 6 in
Midvale, outside. of Salt Lake
City, after police received an
anonymous call they were there.
The Union Leader newspaper
of Manchester, N.H., reported
Tuesday that in the motel room,
police found the contents of
Gardner's wallet. The newspaper
also said a laptop computer that
belonged to Gardner and was
reportedly pawned by Whitmore
was recovered.
But what hasn't been found is

Horton expected the nine
hours between that and the first
Americari Eagle flight out, sched-
uled for 6:20 a.m. today, would
be pure mayhem.
"Lots of little details to take
care of in that little area ... but we

of the old 6ne. It features a new
bag-handling facility, a vertical
circulation building taking pedes-
trians from one side of the street
to the other into the old terminal,
and a new parking garage, restau-
rant and bathrooms.
Construction at the airport has
been marred with delays and cost
overruns since its inception in

The hope is
it disorients them
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

An American crocodile found
dead near Florida City last week
might be alive if he'd had the
chance to wear a magnet hat.
State biologists have launched
an experiment to see if using
headgear fitted with magnets can
disorient crocodiles being moved
from residential areas.
Highly protected crocodiles


are moved when they take up res-
idence near humans. While not
considered normally aggressive
toward humans, the American
crocodile can grow to become a
very large carnivore, perhaps 14
feet in length.-
But when moved away from
neighborhoods, crocodiles have a
remarkable ability to find their
way back to the place they con-
sider home, biologists said.
"Crocodiles will travel an
average of 10 miles per week to
return to their capture site in a
practice called homing," said

Gabriella Ferraro, from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
An 11-foot, 6-inch crocodile
found dead in a canal near Florida
City last week had been moved
from Coral Gables twice.
It returned once - and may
have been crossing a road in a
second planned return when
struck by a car.
"Crocodile agents have been
instructed to attach magnets to
both sides of the crocodile's head
at the capture site," Ferraro said.
"It's hoped the magnets will dis-
orient the crocodiles and disrupt
their navigation so they can't find
their way back to the capture
site."
The magnets, one on each side
of the head, are removed from the
crocodile before it is released
after being relocated. The reptile
is tagged so its history can be
recorded.
"Scientists in Mexico have
reported success in using mag-
nets to break the homing cycle,"
said Lindsey Hord, an FWC croc-
odile specialist.
"The results of the study are
promising," he said. "If it proves
successful here, we could gain an

Booze a possible factor in fatal crash


Miami-Dade
man is killed in
boat collision
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Marine officers will put par-
ticular scrutiny on boat lights
and blood alcohol tests while
investigating a fatal boat crash
Saturday off Key Largo.
Orlando Rodriguez, 58, of
Miami-Dade County died after
two boats collided around 7:50


p.m. in Blackwater Sound, just
off the bayside near mile 105.
"It was a T-bone type crash
and we know which craft
appears to be at fault, but the
forensics on these incidents get
quite technical," said Officer
Bobby Dube, a spokesman for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Six people, all from Miami-
Dade, wound up in the water
after a 23-foot Sea Craft appar-
ently was struck by a 20-foot Sea
Fox boat. Each boat carried three
people.

is awarded
$1 M contract

The actual building won't be
there for the foreseeable future,
but the Monroe County
Commission has voted to spefid
just over $1 million to design a
new emergency operations center
at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
Jerry Barnett, county project
management director, said the
money is refundable through
state grants with the Department
of Community Affairs and the
Division of Emergency Manage-
ment.
"As we go through the process
of design, with the completion of
each phase, we send a request to
the state and they reimburse us,"
he said.
Barnett said he 'negotiated
with Architects Design Group for
a week, lowering their bid from
$1.45 million to $1,037,044. That
included chopping a last-minute
$45,000 off between morning
and noon last Wednesday, when
the County Commission met in
Key Largo, as the item was
tabled for a few hours to work out
commissioners' concerns with
the contract.
One major hang-up was
whether the architect's fee would

No charges had been filed at
press time.
Investigators will consider
waterway navigation rules and
equipment checks before filing
their report, Dube said.
"None of the people aboard
were wearing lifejackets," Dube
said. "There's a good chance Mr.
Rodriguez could have survived
if he had been wearing a life-
jacket."

death in Monroe County waters
in 2009. That fatality, and one on
the last day of 2008, both

go up or down based on future
changes in the proposed cost of
construction.
The "architect's fee was a
fixed fee up to $13.5 million for
the construction of the EOC. You
have to have a theoretical cost to
set up fees," Barnett said.
The current county EOC is the
Marathon Government Center.
When a hurricane approaches,
the County Commission cham-
bers are transformed into a com-
munications hub for local, state
and federal agencies.
The city of Marathon operates
its own EOC out of the new fire
station at the airport. But County
Administrator Roman Gastesi
has said those buildings are inad-
equate because they don't meet
state requirements to be 18 feet
above the flood plain and capable
of sustaining 225 mph winds.
"It is a responsibility of the
county's to operate an EOC.
Every agency from the Navy
down to the municipalities has a
seat at the table to create the best
communication we can," Mayor
George Neugent said.
The commission has lamented
the inability of it and Keys
municipalities to work together
on projects like this one - and
did so last Wednesday as well.
"It would be nice to have
economies of scale in this county
on something," Commissioner
Heather Carruthers said.

Bentley jailed
after landing
in Oklahoma
Keynoter Staff

A Big Pine Key man is fac-
ing felony drug trafficking
charges following his arrest
for allegedly flying 28 pounds
of marijuana into Oklahoma
from the Keys.
Robert Bentley Jr., age
unknown, was arrested Feb.
13, .and on Friday the Tulsa
County Sheriff's Office filed
paperwork with the courts
there to seize his plane
through forfeiture. The air-
craft is a Cessna 30 twin-
engine aircraft.
The Tulsa World reported
that on Feb. 13, personnel
with the Air and Marine
Operations Center of U.S.
Customs and Border
Protection saw the Cessna fly-
ing in a "suspicious fnanner"
and reported it to Immigration
and Customs Enforcement
agents.
The plane landed at Tulsa
International Airport, and fed-
eral agents and sheriff's
deputies arrested Bentley, the
pilot. They reportedly discov-
ered the marijuana in his duf-
fle bag. Officials said the mar-
ijuana has a $17,000 street
value.
Bentley was released from
jail on $25,000 bond the day
he was taken into custody. He
has since been charged with
trafficking.
ICE agents said Bentley
flew to Tulsa from the Keys
but it wasn't clear if he flew
from the Key ,West or
Marathon airports, or a pri-
vate airstrip.

Keys Opinion


Crime shoots up,

and more guns coming

A spate of recent reports about break-ins, burglaries and prop-
erty crimes confirms what law enforcement has been saying for
some time: Economic hard times bring an increase in crime.
If there were any doubts about the linkage, that disappeared
Tuesday with the release of a national survey by the Police
Executive Research Forum pointing to a 40 percent increase in
thefts.
And more crimes being reported comes at the same time
budget cuts have squeezed most local policing agencies whose
funding mostly relies on either municipal or county tax rev-
enues. Across the board, tax revenues are down, including here
in the Keys and the rest of Florida.
Increasing crime also triggered a rush for gun purchases and
permits. Ironically, Florida finds itself in violation of federal
law because it can't keep up with demand for concealed
weapon permits.
A backlog of 95,000 applications triggered news that Florida
lawmakers just authorized $3.9 million to hire 61 temporary
state workers to handle the backlog.
According to a report by the St. Petersburg Times' capitol
bureau, federal law requires states to process applications for
gun permits within 90 days. Starting last November, a run on
gun permit applications meant Florida was no longer able to
comply.
Gov. Charlie Crist was asked about the irony of hiring tem-
porary state workers, to process concealed weapons permits at
the same time the /state has been cutting jobs for health and
human service needs, along with less funding for education,
wage freezes for state workers, and other measures to curb
spending. /
"I'm pro'gun," Crist told the St. Pete Times. "I think people
ought to have the right to protect themselves, and if people
want to get new certificates, that's their constitutional right."
What he didn't say, of course, is the mad dash to obtain the
weapons permits is goaded by widespread fear that President
Obama's administration intends to curb gun proliferation.
Even though he was asked and answered that during the fall
election campaign, the gun lobby keeps fanning the flames.
A Miami-Dade sporting goods store owner, quoted in The
Miami Herald, explains the sudden rush for gun permits: "The
demand is because of the fear. People are concerned with los-
ing their rights."
There is little evidence that owning more guns reduces prop-
erty crimes. But having more concealed weapons on the street
- now that's downright scary.

'Keynoter' editorial was way off the mark


EDITOR:
Under the title "TAMPOA's arrogance hard
to believe," the Keynoter again shows its con-
tempt for a neighborhood full of good citizens.
The Saturday editorial puts together a mishmash
of falsehoods and distortions to draw the con-
clusion that this community - which con-
tributes a full 10 percent of the entire property-
tax base to Key West - should be "blown out
of the water." Usually the Keynoter is slow to
participate in such muckraking, but someone
there obviously has an axe to grind.
The first error in the editorial is that the gate
work at the Truman Annex neighborhood
entrance began "without warning." On the con-
trary, the job went through the full permitting
and compliance process and all work has been
fully licensed by the city. There was nothing to
hide.
The editorial talks about places on the "other
side" of the Truman Annex neighborhood such
as Fort Zach and the Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery center - as if people are going to be
blocked from them. The fact is that TAMPOA
has made it clear that they will always allow
access whenever those places are open to the
public. Is it important that the general public be
able to get to the locked entrances of those facil-


Bogey: Been there,
tried that

EDITOR:
Re: Harry Tressa's letter regarding a
Humphrey Bogart festival in the Upper Keys:
Oh, we tried.
Several years ago, the Key Largo Chamber
of Commerce was on track to produce a multi-
day Humphrey Bogart festival in Key Largo.
We were working with Moda Entertainment, the
company that holds the rights to the Bogart
name. We paid a $400 licensing fee and agreed
verbally to pay Moda 8 percent of the festival
proceeds.
Everyone was excited about the prospects.
Our committee spent hundreds of hours in
preparation, and we were ready to rock 'n' roll
with a Bogart scavenger hunt at Key Largo
businesses, Bogart film screenings, a concert, a
golf tournament with Bogart's son Steve, and
much more. And yes, we even had Tourist
Development Council funding.
Imagine our shock and dismay when the
final written contract arrived at our office -
with a demand for 50 percent of festival pro-
ceeds. Numerous attempts by phone and e-mail
to reach the licensing company to talk about the
change in terms were ignored, and our Bogart
festival died in the starting gate.
Maybe some day we will be able to pull of a
Humphrey Bogart festival. It is, as Mr. Tressa
says, a natural for Key Largo. But for that to
happen, a lot of pieces - some of them out of
our control - have to fall in place.
Jackie Harder, president
Key Largo-
Chamber of Commerce


ities when they are closed? Regardless, the tiny
few who may wish to do that do have other
ways to get-there.
You speak of TAMPOA's "claim" that the
piece of Southard inside the neighborhood is pri-
vate property as if it that hasn't been resolved.
Indeed, the city has already accepted that
TAMPOA's due diligence in pursuit of title was
sufficient to concede that point. You can drag that
out again if you wish, but that's a dead horse to
beat.
And the settlement that TAMPOA reached
with the city was not keyed off dropping a
$30,000 "access fee." Part of the original media-
tion called for the city to pay TAMPOA for
additional maintenance of the street due to the
extra traffic the city's new waterfront projects
would bring. In the final settlement, the city
took over the maintenance of the street rather
than pay TAMPOA to do so. That was just one
of the compromises in the agreement. But the
implication of extortion in your editorial does
sound so much more nefarious - again helping
to sell newspapers.
And despite how nettlesome it may be to con-
tinue to repeat the claim, there really is not a
push by TAMPOA to reroute traffic through
Bahama Village. The Truman Annex neighbor-
hood accepts that Southard Street will always
-remain open when something is going on at the
waterfront. The new Petronia Street entrance to
the waterfront, which is actually quite popular
among those who live in the village, just pro-
vides an alternative path there. The tired old
claims of "TAMPOA stomping on Bahama
Village" are passe.
But that reality, once again, doesn't help sell
papers.
Oh, and by the way, the "skirmish at the
gate" that was instigated by a couple of city
officials was a separate incident from the
"protest march." Better check your newspaper's
archives a little more carefully to get the facts
straight in your next attack on a neighborhood
full of good people. People who really don't
deserve to be painted with such an ugly brush.

The McDonald's All-
American Games, which serve
as launch pads to NBA and
WNBA careers for the best and
brightest prep basketball play-
ers, is coming to Miami - and
Key Wester James Hardin will
be on hand.
Hardin, 19, works at the
McDonald's on North Roosevelt
Boulevard and was selected to
cover the games and other
events as a correspondent for
McDonald's in-house blog,
StationM. He was chosen to be
the chief blogger after winning a
national corporate essay and
video contest.
"I'm very, very excited about
going to this event. It brings
back all these great childhood
memories," says Hardin, who is
from Kentucky, where
University of Kentucky Wildcat
basketball- is king.
Alumni of the McDonald's
All-Star Games that went on to
the NBA include former Heat
star Alonzo Mourning, Michael
Jordan, Isiah Thomas, Shaquille
O'Neal, Lebron James and
Carmelo Anthony.
But it's about more than just
basketball. The McDonald's All-
American Games raise money
for the Ronald McDonald House
Charities, which provides a
place to stay for families with
children who have been relocat-
ed to receive medical care.
"It's a great way for the play-
ers to see 'how . they can help


their community doing what
they're good at," Hardin said,
noting that this year's fundrais-
ing goal is $1 million and
$440,000 of that has' already
been raised.
Hardin started working at
McDonald's in Michigan almost
four years ago. He stuck with the
company when he moved to Key
West.
"If you put your mind to it,
McDonald's will let you be
-whatever you want to be,"
Hardin said. "It's more than just
one store and one location. It's
more than just making Big
Macs.; it's a global vision. I'm
hoping that I can come to a bet-
ter understanding of that global
vision."
Hardin will be at the Bank
United center at the University
of Miami on March 30 for the
Powerade Jam Fest and slam-
dunk contest and will stay
through the men's and women's
East vs. West basketball games
on April 1.
While he's there, Hardin will
produce Web content for.
StationM, which acts as a crew
and manager forum where
employees can get news, share
pictures and read blogs pro-
duced by their peers.
"I could put that on a resume
and take it anywhere," Hardin
said. "It just shows good com-
munication skills."
The McDonald's games will
be broadcast on ESPNU.

Bathhouse finally arrives


$340K building
still needs
some tweaking
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A new bathroom and laundry
facility for Garrison Bight moor-
ing field tenants is back on track
after some uncertainty.
Work crews last Wednesday
used two cranes to hoist the 13-
foot-by-55-foot, 60,000-pound
building onto concrete pilings
installed on Barracuda Pier at the
marina off Trumbo Road.
Originally, the building was
expected to be open by the end of
the year. But ModTech, the com-
pany contracted by the city to
build and install it, went bankrupt
in September.
After that, the city contacted
ModTech's bonding company,
Liberty Mutual, and worked with
them to hire new contractors to
.finish the project.
"We've got a couple of items
we need to address with the man-
ufacturer," says Gary Bowman,
director of general services for


the city. He mentioned that some
items in of the original contract
like doors and windows were not
delivered.
The new $340,000 building
will have seven rooms each set
up with a shower, a sink and a toi-
let. The building will also house a
laundry room with four washers


The new
building will
also house a
laundry room.

and dryers, a change machine and
two vending machines, as well as
a small office for Garrison Bight
employees.
Currently, there are only two
bathrooms and showers servicing
the 51 full-time tenants of the
mooring field.
In the new building, crews are
still working to install decking
and stairs around the base and
getting the utilities hooked up.


"It's going to look real nice,"
Bowman said. He didn't have a
firm completion date set, but
once the decking is up, "Then
we'll be full speed ahead."
Dock Master David Pascale
said, "Once it gets open it's going
to be exciting for sure." Referring
to the tenants he said, "They've
been waiting for a while."
The mooring field is located in
water between Fleming Key and
Sigsbee Park and houses num-
ber of permanent liveaboard resi-
dents as well as transient boaters
looking for a place to tie up for
the evening.
Rates for the mooring field,
with tax included, are $16.47
daily or $290.44 monthly.
On the other side of Trumbo
Road at Amberjack Pier, also part
of Garrison Bight, tenants of
Charterboat Row are awaiting
construction on a project
approved by the City
Commission in January.
For $1.2 million, the city is
going to rebuild the current
docks, which were submerged by
Hurricane Wilma in 2005, and fit
them with all new utility
hookups, and build new bath-
rooms.

Sanctuary's

Massey dies at 40


She was global
representative
for coral reefs
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Amy Massey, a Florida
Keys National Marine
Sanctuary biologist who car-
ried the message of reef preser-
vation across the world, died
Sunday.
Ms. Massey, 40, died at her
parents' hpme in Stuart after a
long fight with breast cancer.
"Amy was .a true coral-reef
spirit," said Billy Causey,
southeast and Caribbean direc-
tor for the National Marine
Sanctuaries Program. "There is
n to express how much
the sanctuary team will miss
Amy's energy and passion."
Ms. Massey joined the Keys
sanctuary staff in 1997 as a
coordinator with the Team
OCEAN volunteer program.
She later moved to the sanc-
tuary's Damage Assessment and
Restoration Program to assess
and repair grounding incidents,
and was the unit dive supervisor
for the sanctuary's Upper Keys
region.
Ms. Massey traveled exten-
sively with sanctuary staff to
share the mooring-buoy tech-
nology pioneered in the Keys
to prevent anchor damage to
reefs.
"Amy literally traveled the
globe as a sanctuary represen-
tative, and she was exactly the
kind of dedicated person you
want out there," Causey said.
"Whenever we took a particu-
larly important visitor out to
the Keys reef, we tried to make
sure Amy was on the boat."
"Amy touched an awful lot
of people in her life," said
Karen Bareford, a former sanc-
tuary coworker and longtime
friend. "There's a huge com-
munity of people out there who
loves her."
A celebration of life is being
planned for 3 p.m. March 7 at
Burton Memorial United
Methodist Church in Tavernier.
Additional details will ' be
announced.. � . ,

These Stock Island apartments, at 5530 Third Ave., will be renovated and converted to
affordable housing, rented out by Habitat for Humanity of Key West and Lower Florida Keys.


Habitat to buy apartments


* Lower Keys group
wants to rehab for
affordable housing
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Habitat for Humanity is best
known as a builder of new
homes that are sold to families
eligible for its no-interest loan
program. But the Lower Keys
chapter of Habitat has been tak-


ing steps to expand that mission
to help provide existing housing
in the Keys at affordable rates
to lower-income residents. And
the non-profit is about to take
its biggest step yet in that direc-
tion, with the purchase of 12
apartments on Stock Island.
The two-bedroom, one-bath
apartments are split among
three two-story buildings with
four units in each. They sit on
two lots at 5530 Third Ave.


On Tuesday, the Monroe
County Land Authority
Advisory Committee discussed
the possibility of putting afford-
able housing money into the
project. Bob Calhoun, execu-
tive director of the Key West &
Lower Florida Keys chapter of
Habitat for Humanity, is asking
the authority to spend
$821,000; in return, the county
would take title to the property
and lease it back to Habitat.The

TIB profits from another's failure


Acquires $317M
in deposits at
low 1.3 percent.
By MARGARET MENGE
mienge@keynoter.com

TIB Bank was lucky to be in
the right place at the right time
earlier this month when the feds
were looking to close the Cape
Coral-based Riverside Bank. TIB,
bought $317 million in Riverside
Bank deposits from the FDIC,


which shut Riverside's doors on
Feb. 13. The nine branches were
all re-opened on Feb. 17 after the
President's Day holiday as
branches of TIB.
TIB, whose total deposits as of
Dec. 30 were just under $1.1 bil-
lion, bought the $317 million in
Riverside Bank deposits for a 1.3
percent premium. In a statement
distributed to the media on Feb.
18, Thomas Longe, chairman and
CEO of TIB Financial Corp., said
that with the addition of


Riverside's deposits, TIB has
added "an attractive mix" of
"lower cost deposits" that will
help to fund the bank's loan
growth.
Despite the $317 million in
new deposits, acquired at an envi-
able rate, TIB's stock slid last
week, closing Friday at $3.16 a
share, down 19 percent in just
one week.
"I think it's directional right
now. Everything is negative,"
Steve ,Gilhooly, TIB's chief,

deal on the table is for $1.4 mil-
lion, the committee was told,
and its share would cover half
the acquisition and renovation
costs. The committee agreed to
consider the proposal, but it
won't make a decision until
receiving an appraisal and other
information from the county's
building department. Calhoun
says the buildings on Stock
Island have "good bones," but
need a lot of work. Renovation
plans include installing metal
roofs, impact-resistant win-
dows, new doors and central air,
as well as refurbishing the inte-
riors.
Only four apartments are
occupied, -Calhoun says, and
those tenants would be wel-
come to stay. He told the com-
mittee that Habitat would rent
the units for significantly less
than their current price of
$1,400 to $1,700. The Habitat
for Humanity chapter is a par-
ticipant in a state tax credit pro-


gram that funnels money direct-
ly to local affordable housing
projects, and Calhoun says
some of that money can be used
to purchase rental property. The
program, known as the
Community Contribution Tax
Credit, allows businesses to get
tax relief while helping solve
the affordable housing problem
here in the Keys. Businesses
that donate to nonprofits pro-
viding such housing can take
half of their total- donation, up
to $250,000, as tax credits
toward their state sales or cor-
porate income tax obligations.
Last summer, Habitat. pur-
chased six one-bedroom condo-
miniums at Fogarty Avenue and
First Street in Key West.
Calhoun said Habitat plans to
convert three of the six to own-
ership in the coming months and
continue to manage the other
three as rentals.'
In the fall, Habitat started
looking at an 11-unit building
on Eisenhower Drive, but
Calhoun said Habitat would
seek a partnership with the land

TIB buys

deposits

TIB / From 13

finaficial officer, told the
Keynoter last week. Indeed, it
was one of the worst weeks ever
for banks, and every publicly
held bank with a presence in the
Keys saw its stock price fall,
with the exception of BB&T, a
North Carolina-based bank that
opposed the Troubled Asset
Relief Program on ideological
grounds, though did, in the end,
accept TARP funds.
TIB has struggled over the
last year, and executives at the
bank have pointed not to the
housing crisis-as the source or
problems, but to car loans. A
high unemployment rate in
parts of Southwest Florida, in
Hendry County in particular,
has led thousands of borrowers
to default on automobile loans.
TIB was one of the first of
the regional banks in Florida to
receive TARP funds. The bank,
now based in Naples, received
$37 million in federal help late
last year, issuing that amount in
shares of preferred stock to the
U.S. Treasury.
TIB was founded in 1974 as
The Islamorada Bank. The bank
was headquartered in Islamorada
until 2003, when the headquar-
ters was moved to Naples.
Gilhooly says in addition to
the deposits of the now-defunct
Riverside Bank, TIB is also
looking to take on some of its
loans, as soon as it has a chance
to review them. He says TIB
and other banks had just about
two weeks to submit bids to
buy deposits and assets of
Riverside from the FDIC.
Those bids were due on Feb.
10, and TIB found out later that
day that its bid had been
accepted.

Went to a garden party...


Eight homes on
33rd annual tour
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon Garden Club
showcases Middle Keys homes
ranging from a half-duplex to a
spacious 4,000-square-foot
estate at its 33rd annual House &
Garden Tour March 7.
Garden Club member Betsy
Philipps said the homes them-
selves will be the primary focus
for this year's tour. Eight homes,
six in Key Colony Beach and
two in Marathon, will have their
doors open to the public from 10
a.m. until 4 p.m.
Philipps said no matter the
size of the house, each owner has
made it his or her own by design-
ing it to their personal tastes.
"That's what the Keys are, a
wide variety," she said. "People
from all walks of life live here in
the Keys and they all put their
own spin on it. This gives people
an opportunity, in one day, to go
down these little side streets and
see how people live their lives
here in the Keys. It's just a great
way to spend a day."
Owners of a 7th Street home


This is the view of East Sister's Creek from the back porch of a
Sombrero Boulevard home featured on the tour. Marathon's
Aultman Construction Co. built the 4,000-square-foot house in
2007. The three-bedroom home features a vaulted 25-foot foyer
ceiling, in-ground pool and guesthouse.


in Key Colony completed a chal-
lenging remodel of their home in
2008. They had to maintain
existing property setbacks and
stay within the city's stringent
height limit, and the result was a
multi-tier single-family home
with shades of Frank Lloyd
Wright in the design.
Formerly. , .a single-story


duplex, the home has been
upgraded to 2,500 square feet,
with three bedrooms, 2.5 bath-
rooms and a gourmet kitchen
with all the bells and whistles.
The home also features a 109-
foot-long tiled hallway decorat-
ed with antique posters.
Outside is a swimming pool
and spiral case leading to a view

Two doors away on 7th Street
is a house that was torn down
and rebuilt when its owners pur-
chased each side of a duplex. In-'
2008, it was transformed into a
single 1,800-square-foot home.
The canal-front home is simi-
lar to other duplexes on the out-
side, but redone with the own-
ers' personal tastes in rfiind. The
living room is vaulted with sky-
lights and each room has been
designed with a mix or Oriental
and South Indies decor.
The owners have also put a
personal touch on the landscap-
ing. What began with a single
coconut palm has blossomed
into a "backyard oasis," com'-
plete with meandering walkway
and outdoor bar.
"Quite a bit of Key Colony
Beach is the single-story duplex-
es. Each owner has taken their
own taste and redone them,"
Philipps said. "The one on 7th
Street where the owner bought
both sides is really adorable. The
owners actually named each
room based on how they wanted
to design it. They put a lot of
heart and soul into the home."

V XWhen the Going Gets Tough

...the Tough Don't Skimp
on their Ad Budgets")


Selling in a Tough Economy 101
Would you Like


256%
Higher Sales than your Competitors?
A recent McGraw-Hill Research study looked at 600 companies from
1980 to 1985 and found that businesses which chose to maintain or raise
their level of advertising expenditures during the 1981 and 1982 reces-
sion had significantly higher sales after the economy recovered.-
Specifically, companies that advertised aggressively during the reces-
sion had sales 256% higher than those that did not continue to advertise.
How Businesses Survive in Tough Times
Lessons from the Experts
. Brand is important, especially when consumers are cutting back
on expenditures. Product quality and good distribution are key,
but you have to maintain that brand by communicating to your
customers
Straight talk is more valuable than ever. Your ad message should
empower consumers and help them think of ways to be in con-
trol so the customer can say, 'I see this business is on my side.'
Recessions come and go, but a successful brand is for life. Be
careful how you react because the downturn is not forever.
Withdrawing until the economy picks up and cash-flow increases
will mean having to reinvent the company all over again, at a
much greater cost.
- Loyal customers are the most valuable for any business. In your
advertising, highlight what you do best and be sensitive to the
needs of your customer. Product offers and sponsorship pro-
grams are good ways to connect with consumers.
Focus on the real. The reality is people still need to buy gas,
families need to eat, children need clothes and school supplies,
and consumers still consume - even during hard times. When
Key West went bankrupt in the 1930s, it was tourism that put the
city back on its feet before WWII.

The lesson about ignoring history means we're doomed to repeat it
has never been more on target than now. I urge you to consider this
insightful information pubbshed by the Wharton School of Businrss
- at the University of Pennsylvania.

Island Christian pitching ace
Phillip Izaguirre struck out 13
hitters in the Eagles' season
debut Monday, but Mater Lakes
Academy rallied late for an 8-3
win.
"We were trying to do too
much, especially at the plate.
We can hit better than that,"
said Eagle head coach Tony
Hammon.
"On defense, our inexperi-
ence came back to bite us,"
Hammon said. "Our first game
had some first-game jitters."
The Eagles ,play back-to-
back home games this week-
end, taking on Boca Raton
Christian at 4 p.m. Friday and
again at 10 a.m. Saturday. Both
games will be played at the ICS
campus in Islamorada.

Baseball team

Country Day
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' lineup erupted
for seven runs in the fifth inning
to put away Miami Country
Iay, 10-2, Friday.
The victory gave the baseball
Hurricanes a 2-0 start on the
spring campaign.
"This is a real deep team,"
said head coach Jeff Meyers.
"We could be pretty good."
Junior LeDarius Sanders
recorded his second mound win


in three days, after coming on in
relief-to get a Feb. 18 decision
over St. Brendan.
At Country Day, Sanders
threw a two-hitter through five
innings, with 11 strikeouts and ,
just two walks. Bobby DePaula''
and Chad White threw in relief.
White, a junior who trans-
ferred from Texas, went 2-for-2
and scored three Hurricane runs.
Jake Lane, a sophomore out-
fielder, drilled a two-run single
as the Canes rallied for seven
runs in The fifth.
"Our defense didn't commit
an error, and we stole 12 bases,"
Meyers said. "It was a good all-

Heritage comes

Meat Loaf sang, "Two out
of Three Ain't Bad," and that
sums up the way the Key West
High School baseball team
views last weekend's season-
opening Derek Parker
Memorial Tournament at Rex
Weech Field.
After losing to highly tout-
ed South Miami, 7-2,
Thursday night, the Conchs
came back to defeat Dr. Krop,


11-7, Friday night, and
Somerset Academy, 13-3,
Saturday night. The Conchs
finished second in the tourney
with a 2-1 record, behind win-
ner and 3-0 South Miami. .
"We obviously are disap-
pointed that we didn't win all
three, but to come back and
play as well as we did in the
last two games was a good
sign," said coach Miguel
Menendez. "We have a veter-
an group that expects to play
well, so I was not at all sur-
prised."
The Conchs had 14 hits

so The Eagles outhit Mater
ig Lakes' Bears, 6-5, but defen-
n- sive miscues spotted the visi-
-tors to a 4-3 lead in the fourth
inning.
SIzaguirre, a -lanky junior,
notched strikeouts to keep
Mater off the bases but he often
ran out to full counts. By the
seventh, the. wear was starting
to show.
The Bears (1-0) took advan-
tage of two hits and two walks
to rally for four runs in the top
of the inning. The sun had set,
and the dark sky did not help.
"I didn't realize how dark it
was until they hit a pop fly at
me and I could barely see it,"
said senior outfielder Aaron
Izaguirre.
Island Christian stranded
three runners without a score in
Sthe first, and left men on base
in nearly every inning.
The Eagles did all their scor-
ing in the third inning, taking
advantage of Kalen Carter's
RBI single, two walks, an error
I and a balk. Aaron Izaguirre,
catcher Jordan Izaguirre and
Carter all scored in the frame.
Leadoff - hitter Tom


Cavanagh, .infielder Kadian
Carter and Phillip Izaguirre
also had hits in the game.
The Eagles' opening-day
lineup, saw Phillip and Jordan
Izaguirre as the battery, with
older brother Aaron in center.
Kalen Carter started at short-
stop with Kadian Carter at first,
but they later switched places.-
Cavanagh moved to second,
and J.J. Cruciger played third.

Island Christian's Lady

"That was a big victory for

"The girls are doing well."
Abbey Lindholm and Jen

against Dr. Krop and won
behind the five-inning, seven-
strikeout pitching of left-han-
der Nolan Thomas. Frankie
Ratcliff, Michael Arencibia
and Cole Harrison each had
two hits, and'Charlie Walker-
Yhap had an RBI double.
Ratcliff came in to pitch late
in the game and struck out the
four batters he faced.
Saturday night, in a game
called after the fifth .inning
because of the 10-run mercy
rule, the Conchs scored four
runs in the first inning and
seven in the second. Lefty
starter Drew Rivera pitched
three scoreless innings to pick
up the victory. Thomas had a
double and three RBI; Nick
Bertiaux had two hits, and
junior Freddy Varela hit a sac-
rifice fly for his first varsity
RBI.
The weekend left three
players foremost in
Menendez's mind.
"Nolan Thomas," he said,
"continues to show how good
a -pitcher he is turning into.
Nolan Josephson has done a
great job so far with his
defense and at the plate. And
it's also good to see Charlie
Walker-Yhap starting to
swing the bat the way he can."
The Conchs will host
defending state- and national
champion American Heritage
Friday and Saturday night,
with both games starting at
7:30.
"We want to play these
kind of games because these
are the games that prepare
you for the playoffs,"
Menendez said.

Victors drop the Marathon Dolphins


Baseball squad
gives up big
second inning
. By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.cpm

A pair of bases-loaded walks
and a pair of errors led to two
big innings for Miami Christian
School Friday and a 6-1 base-


ball loss for Marathon High
School.
"We hit a lot better as a team.
I was proud of the way they
played and the adjustments they
made," coach Luis Leal said.
"We need to stay away from the
one big inning where we break
down and give the other team
runs on a bunch of mistakes."
The Dolphins struggled


offensively in their season
opener against Westminster
Christian and in preseason tilts
against Southridge and Coral
Shores high schools. But their
bats came alive a bit, Leal said,
with six hits, including a home
run by junior Jake Sjursen.
The Dolphins spread the hits
around against the Victors
Friday. Sjursen homered, Joey
Fernandez doubled and Matt
McKeon, Tyler Roussin and


brothers Yoniel and Doniel
Esquirol singled.
McKeon also pitched a
scoreless third and fourth
inning, striking out five of the
seven batters he faced. But Leal
said he didn't want to wear out
McKeon, who was on just three
days rest.
The Victors scored three runs
in the second inning to take the
early lead. Starting pitcher Toby
Eigner gave up back-to-back


singles and a one-out walk to
load the bases. A double scored
all three runners and put the
Dolphins in a hole.
Sjursen homered in the
fourth inning to make it 3-1, but
Miami Christian tacked on three
more in the fifth inning to ,put
the game out of reach. A walk
scored a run in that inning anda
missed pop fly allowed two
more runs to score in that
inning.

Swept in singles, the Conch

Led by sophomore Rae Lark,
the Key West High School girls
tennis team defeated Westminster
Christian, 4-3, for its first victory
of the season Friday afternoon at
the Coral Shores courts in
Tavernier. "
Playing No. 2 singles, Lark
won, 8-0, and also teamed with
Gabby Scammacca to win the No.
1 doubles match.
"She's playing inspired,"
coach Paul Findlay said of Lark.
"I know she can be a good player.
It's just a matter of her wanting to
be one. Her attitude has come
along nicely."
Freshman Bridgit Behmke, at
No. 4, and sophomore Alicia
Garcia, at No. 5, also won for the
Conchs, who snapped a two-
match losing streak. Junior
Raquel Stockton, who was moved
up to No. 3, lost but played well,

grouper.



Go for the shallows


There are lots
of fish there,
though not large

It's not always full-throttle
fishing hitting on all cylinders.
Yes, there is still a wide abun-
dance of fish hitting all over the
place, but every once in a while
you will find one species or two
that seems to take a break for a
spell. Two of them are the sailfish
and the yellowtail. Both have
been a little slow for a few days
now but I expect them to turn on
,wild any day now.
The sailfish have been spotty,
although they have had their days
when they would show in good
numbers. The consistency has
been the question.
A good number of them have
been found along the inside edge
of the Gulf Stream, where there is
a noticeable current line. This has
been a good spot when they are
not very evident along the reef
edge. Not saying that this is
where they go every day, but it
has been fairly productive.
. Wahoo and quite a few dol-
phin have also been found along
this edge. It has been varying
from 550 feet to 650 feet of
water. If it is calm enough for you
and you're not having luck along
the reef edge, you may want to
give it a try.
Yellowtail have been more in
pockets of large schools rather
than'spread out all over the drop-
off of the reef. It takes some look-
ing to find the larger schools.
The shallower spots and up on
the patch reefs have been the
most consistent areas for finding
fish, although not tons of the real-


r _. .

ly big ones.
Working
more than
one loca-
tion has
been the
key ,to
finding
whe-re
these fish
h a v e
moved to
for the
time being.
I expect
them to be


back up and chomping in a day or
two in better numbers.
What have remained hot have
been the bay and the bridge chan-
nels. These venues have held
steady with mangrove snapper,
grouper and many other species.
The bay has been full of macker-
el, mostly Spanish. If you go out
far enough, 7 to 11 miles north of
the islands, and you don't catch
mackerel, you definitely need to
attend one of our seminars - or
maybe more than one. ,
Two things to remember: Use
good chum and wire leaders.
Without wire leaders, you will be
an expert at fishing knots by the
end of the day; without chum,
you will be asleep by noon.
The best action has been from
Sprigger Bank along the
Everglades National Park bound-
ary westward and southwestward
to just beyond Bullard Bank and
over to well west of Bluefish
Bank. This ridge has been the
hottest area and is also some of
the best fishing for snapper on the
bottom as well as occasional
grouper and a cruising cobia or
two.
If you take live shrimp, don't


be shy. It will take you longer to
put the shrimp on the hook than it
will take the fish to bite it. If you
want to go for the camaraderie
and to relax, don't use bait or you
will be interrupted continuously.
Flats fishing has been very
good, as well, with numerous
bonefish caught and seen on a
daily basis. The winds have not
affected the guides as much as the
visitors, mostly because the pro-
fessi6nal guides know where and
when they can fish behind this
island or that, and find fish in
much calmer conditions.
Fly fishermen have been
doing very well with the bones
and, on certain days, quite a few
tarpon, too. Permit have been fre-
quenting the flats all along. Other
species that are not as popular but
just about as much fun have been
in abundance - jacks, barracuda,
small sharks and quite a few
snapper have all been in these
areas.
Now is a great time to work
the patch reefs, not only anchored
but also drifting and slow
trolling. There is a huge variety of
species frequenting these patches
now, which cover much more
area than just the edge of the reef.
Working these areas will be
the main topic at this week's free
fishing seminar in our outdoor
amphitheatre at our Marine
Educational Center at the store,
across from the Marathon
Community Park. We begin
promptly at 6 p.m. Sunday and
everyone is invited.
