concedes


on hotel

No net loss
requirement gone
for waterfront
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A marathon planning session
Friday led the Monroe County
Commission to make changes to
a proposed ordinance to protect
the traditional uses of the work-
ing waterfront but backing away
from the concept of no net loss.
The all-day meeting at the
Marathon Government Center
was just the latest in a long line of
discussions about developer New
Stock Island Properties' plans for
a 300-plus-room hotel on its 54-
acre property at Safe Harbour."
Many residents oppose the
plan, in large part because of the
proposed hotel. But the develop-
ers say the plan would enhance
Stock Island with more waterfront
retail shops, restaurants and more.
County Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette began the
day by asking for clear direction
from the commission on a settle-
ment with the state Department
of Community Affairs, which

Two face major
felony drug counts

Two Keys men were jailed
on numerous felony counts
Thursday night after authori-


ties reportedly saw one of them
running from a house.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives saw Jesse
Bebout, 42, running out of 201
County Road, Lot MH-1. He-
was stopped and Bebout


dropped 2 grams of cocaine,
authorities said. A search of
Bebout revealed another gram
of cocaine so he was charged
with possession.
Detectives then went to the
house Bebout came from and


found Andrew Fernandez, 26.
He reportedly gave them permis-
sion to search the residence and
inside, they say, found 22.5
grams of cocaine, several "con-
trolled" pills, a revolver, $1,804
in cash that was with the drugs, a


scale and several baggies.
He was charged with pos-
session of cocaine with intent
to distribute, possession of
drug paraphernalia and posses-
sion of a firearm by a convict-
ed felon.

Gate hearing


is now April 6


Keynoter Staff

Plans for a gate to restrict
access to the Truman Annex
neighborhood in Key West will
be in limbo at least until April,
says a federal judge.
Arguments from the U.S. Navy,
which opposes a gate, and the
Truman Annex Master Property
Owners Association, which wants
to build one, were supposed to be
heard Friday, but U.S. District
Court Judge Jose Martinez re-
scheduled the hearing for April 6.
The Navy sued the Truman
Annex homeowners group on
Feb. 18 after a construction crew
began digging up the road at the
Southard Street entrance to the
community, rerouting traffic
through Bahama Village.
The next day, Martinez issued


a stop-work order and the crew
began filling the ditch.
The Navy argues that a gate
would limit its access to property
at the Truman Waterfront, there-
by compromising national securi-
ty. Southard Street also leads to
Fort Zachary Taylor State Park
and the. Florida Keys Eco
Discovery Center
The homeowner's group
wants the gate - if allowed to be
installed - closed nightly from
10 p.m. until 6 a.m.
Meanwhile, TAMPOA's con-
tractor has tywo days to finish
repairing the road where it dug
for the gate.
The hearing was rescheduled
for 10 a.m. April 6 a.m. at the fed-
eral courthouse,301 Simonton St.


'Scrambling' for money


SESSION / From 1

will accept the stimulus funds,"
said Saunders, a Democrat from
Key West. "There will be some
partisan disagreement, and there
are strings attached to the money."
But refusing the stimulus
money - an estimated $12.2 bil-
lion for Florida over three years
- would require such massive
cuts in critical services, said
Saunders, legislators "probably
won't have much choice."
"The state revenue estimates
won't be released until March 13
but it's safe to predict they prob-
ably won't look good," he said.
Money for sewer projects is
high on Monroe County officials'
wish list.
;"The state was looking at about
$400 million" of wastewater
money funneled through the
'Department of Environmental
Protection, said Susan Hammaker,
chairwoman of the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District.
"Now that's down to $131 mil-
lion, and there are a lot of people
across the state scrambling to get
that money," she said. "There's a
lot we don't know about what
funding will be available."
Florida has authorized a four-
year program to bond $50 million
ahfiually for Keys wastewater
projects, Saunders said - but not


appropriated the money.
"Whether we can tap the.stim-
ulus money for that is something
that we're trying to get clarified,"
he said.
Saunders said he also has
heard from officials of local
social-service agencies like the
Florida Keys Children's Shelter
that rely heavily on state funding.
Crist's budget also ties
statewide school spending to the
stirlulus package.
"There is no doubt that we are
facing a period of challenge and
sacrifice for all of Florida's fami-
lies," Crist said in his budget
message.
. Saunders said he is sponsoring
a bill that would remove a ceiling
placed on the state's Sadowski
Housing Trust Fund, funded to
create affordable housing since
1992 by a document stamp on
real-estate transactions.
The Sadowski Trust was
capped at $243 million annually,
about half what the tax was
expected to generate last year.
The rest went into the general
state budget.
"We need to put all that back
into housing," Saunders said.
The Monroe County represen-
tative also is working on a bill
that would ensure money collect-
ed from ship groundings on coral
reefs goes to reef restoration.That
bill hasn't yet been submitted.

County concedes on Stock Island


WATERFRONT / From I

had rejected an earlier version of
the county's waterfront plan.
The county had sought
approval by changing land devel-
opment regulations. DCA, howev-
er, said that for the waterfront law
to hold up, it needs to be incorpo-
rated into the land-use plan.
The largest concession made by
the commission was to no longer
require the developers to adhere to
no net loss of working waterfront.
That means New Stock Island
could use a percentage - to be
determined later - of its water-
front for development purposes.
"What they want is a tiered
protection incentive up to some
cap ... and in return [there] will be
a tiered bonus of density,"
Trivette said. That means a devel-
oper could be allowed more den-
sity for the development based on
the amount of working water-
front preserved.
Another item . that took.
lengthy discussion was how to
actually define a hotel room.
Trivette said DCA is pushing the
idea, which he doesn't approve
of, to use a model like the
hotel/motel ordinance Marathon


passed in 2005.
That city ordinance allows
hotel rooms to be redeveloped as
1,500-square-foot suites with three
bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The result in Marathon was
mom-and-pop motels and trailer
park owners selling out to devel-
opers and a wave of high-end
developments approved. Since
then, little to no progress has
been made on many of develop-
ment agreements negotiated dur-
ing the height of the condo-hotel
conversion boom.
The commission "asked us to
look into a conversion ratio
between different types of tran-
sient units," Trivette said.
In other words, the commis-
sion will decide how many tran-
sient units -trailers or mom-
and-pop motel rooms - must be
bought and the rights transferred
to Stock Island in order to build
one larger suite.
Trivette said staff's recom-
mendation was a 1:1 ratio, mean-
ing that every bedroom and bath-
room combination in a redevel-
oped hotel would require the pur-
chase of a rate-of-growth ordi-
nance, or ROGO, building permit
allocation.
However, under staff's recom-


mendation a three-bedroom unit
with just one bathroom would
still require only a one ROGO
allocation.
The commission asked
Trivette to examine other munic-
ipalities' policies and "find a
defensible middle ground."
"For the first time, -they're
saying they Want to be more
lenient than staff suggested,"
Trivette said.

How Businesses Survive in Tough Times
Lessons from the Experts0)
Brand is important, especially when consumers are cutting back
on expenditures. Product quality and good distribution are key,
but to maintain that brand, you must communicate 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 howyou 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.

Whither goest city,

hall? Rossi knows

On Tuesday, Key West may find out where a new city hall is
going to be built.
A 3-2-1 split on the issue at the last City Commission meet-
ing means commissioner Mark Rossi - who was absent at that
meeting - holds a key swing vote.
And in advance of Tuesday night's commission meeting, he
won't say which way he's leaning, although political insiders
accustomed to reading the tea leaves suspect Wickers Field
may have it by a nose.
Here's the logic. Rossi represents a New Town district
although his businesses are in Old Town. So he quite literally
straddles the fence on where city hall should be located.
In an interview with Keynoter reporter Sean Kinney, Rossi
says he has some questions, including concerns that building a
city hall at Wickers Field will result in a net loss of green space.
Then, he cleverly adds the issue of parking, noting that if
New. Town becomes the choice, the current city hall property
on Angela Street could become much-valued parking, which
helps Old Town businesses.
Can he have it both ways?
Turn out for Tuesday night's commission meeting and find
out. The session begins at 6 p.m. and takes place, as usual, at
Old City Hall on Greene Street.

Buyer beware in Marathon

Speaking of city halls, Marathon finds itself doing just fine
with trailers parked at the city events field. But where to hold
public meetings took an odd detour this week.
Turns out plans to use a new conference room at the Florida
Keys Marathon Airport fire station didn't work out the way city
officials thought it would.
Marathon currently rents the County Commission chambers
at the. Marathon Government Center for meetings that can be
televised over Comcast cable, Channel 76.
To skip paying county rent, Marathon hoped to move coun-
cil sessions and other public meetings to the firehouse. The city
even bought video cameras and other equipment at a cost of
$120,000. But it will take another $40,000 to get equipment
installed, up and running.
.Faced with spending more money than originally planned,
the council opted to stay put for now and wait for better times.
The county has lowered the rent for use of the Marathon
Government Center, which helps.
Which reminds us: Whatever happened to County
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro's idea for the county to sell
the government center to Marathon for a city hall?.
Caveat emptor.

Ros-Lehtinen cast the correct vote on stimulus


EDITOR:
I respectfully disagree with Bill Estes' letter to
the editor chastising U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen for not voting for the Economic
Recovery Act. Though he cites a worthy project
that may or may not receive funding once those
dollars are printed and disbursed, he says that by
voting against the bill, Ros-Lehtinen failed to
represent "us."' She definitely represented my
feelings on the bill.
Estes was unhappy because Ros-Lehtinen's
"no" vote could have sidelined a few million dol-
lars of taxpayer money from coming here. This is
a national crisis.
Imagine what is coming. With TARP, the $700
billion Troubled Assets Recovery Plan that
passed in September, we doubled the number of
dollars potentially in circulation with no added
value to support the total. Unless the government
has come up with some magic bullet no one has
ever tried before, we are in for one heck of a fall.
Swell the $450 billion that was in circulation
before October to 1.5 trillion or so dollars in circu-
lation and you get hyperinflation. We can't show
that we have the assets and production capacity to
generate enough money to pay that debt. We as a


nation are in the same position as the homeowners
who took on loans they could not handle. Those,
homeowners are losing their homes. Hopefully
they can find a place to rent and rebuild. We are in
danger of losing our country.
When someone waves a trillion dollars in
your face, it's very hard to say no. In the short
term, your constituents will thank you, but when
the bill for that spending spree comes due, they
will eventually curse you.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen did the hard thing by vot-
ing no on a bill that no one even read in its
entirety before the vote, a bill that could have
been broken into pieces with the most critical
measures enacted quickly and the rest put
through some cost benefit analysis. It is so much
easier to just take your share of the money, grab
what adulation you can and hope to disappear
before it all goes terribly wrong.
I voted for a responsible representative of not
just us, but the next generation of Keys citizens
who will ultimately pay the price for this bill. I
voted for Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and, in my view,
she did the right thing by voting against the bill.

Liveaboard inspections chip away at personal rights


EDITOR:
The current law enforcement push to search
the floating homes of local residents for the
inspection of compliance with environmental
regulations harkens back to the door-to-door
searches that were conducted during the
American Colonial period.
Even at that time, search warrants were
required to search homes, so the English courts
issued writs of assistance that allowed an officer
to search any home, business or other property
without any evidence that a crime may have been
committed. These documents entitled law-
enforcement officials to conduct door-to-door
searches of homes for the supposed purpose of
finding smuggled goods.
In practice, it allowed these officers to make
random searches in the hope of finding incrimi-
nating evidence of any crime, which would then
be prosecuted. Colonists were up in arms over
this abuse of power by the government.
In response to these abuses, the Fourth
Amendment was drafted to guarantee freedom
from these unreasonable searches and seizures.
Under this amendment search warrants for
homes must be sanctioned by judges and sup-
ported by probable cause. The resulting searches
are limited in scope according to specific infor-
.mation supplied to the court.
In modem times, it seems that we have for-
gotten the lessons of the past. Law enforcement
officers believe that they do not need even gener-
al warrants to search floating homes. Just like in
Colonial America these searches are intrusive,
arbitrary and indiscriminate, and are not limited
to inspections of marine sanitation equipment.
And just like the pre-Revolutionary era, offi-
cers make searches in the hope of finding any
'violations of law, which are then prosecuted.' .
Apologists for this effort have argued that the


protection of the environment is more important
than the preservation of personal liberty.
I presume it is easy to forgo some other citi-
zen's liberties as long as it isn't your home that is
the target of these invasive tactics. All too often
in the face of some crisis, there are those who
champion greater power to law enforcement at .
the expense of personal liberty. So those who
want more power concoct a crisis if one does not
come along at a convenient time.
The issue is that this begins the erosion of the
rights of all citizens. Those who wish to infringe
on liberty always seem to pick a small, vulnerable
group, They devise an excuse that the majority of
the community can support and then they begin
chipping away at the Bill of Rights. As rights are
removed, the target group is expanded and soon
human rights and liberty become history.

Let the people create the parks


EDITOR:
In this day and age of everybody
running to the government for a hand-
out of taxpayer dollars, a group of res-
idents in Key Largo has developed a
way for the people to provide recre-
ational properties in Key Largo with-
out the use of property tax money or
liability by Monroe County govern-
ment for its success or failure.
Can't be done, the naysayers say.
Tell that to the hearty citizens who
drove their wagons west and developed
this country without bailout money or a
stimulus package from Washington.
Tell that to President Lincoln, who said
we are a country of the people, by the
people and for the people.
We badly need more and better
public recreational properties in
Monroe County, not only for our resi-
dents but to attract tourists to Key
Largo, who, in spending their money
to visit them, will provide much-need-
ed revenue to our local economy.
* Monroe County's government's
mantra of "We can't do it, we are
broke" is a tired song. So it is time to
give the power to the people to get it
done.
Florida law allows the people of an
unincorporated area such as Key


Largo to create a recreational district
through a petition signed by the
majority of voters within that district,
and to have the county commissioners
establish such a district by passage of
a simple ordinance.
Once formed, this district becomes
self funded through grants; donations
and receipts from its public recreation-
al properties. A few of the projects
under consideration are a 17-acre pas-
sive park at mile marker 1005; where
residents and visitors can hike trails
and view nature as it exists in its natu-
.ral form; a recreational park at the for-
mer Rowell's Marina, where boaters
can launch their boats from a publicly
owned boat ramp and where families
can picnic and major events such as
chili cookoffs, boat shows and flea
markets or charitable fundraisers can
be held; and a historical and marine
museum on a yet-to-be-designated site.
If you live in the area of Key Largo,
you will soon be asked to approve this
petition. And no matter where you live
in the Florida Keys, let your commis-
sioners know you support this return of
power to the people without the use of
property tax money.

Power ban on No Name was never in plans


EDITOR:
No Name Key is the largest solar
community in the Florida Keys:
There are 43 homes powered by a
combination of solar, wind, generator
and battery power.
Solar energy has its limitations; it
works great on sunny days but does-
n't produce electricity at night or on
cloudy days. We No Namers are not
proud of our generators but are forced
to use them to run our homes (refrig-
erators, TVs) when solar isn't enough
or if we want to run air conditioning.
Generators spew huge amounts of
greenhouse gases and toxic air pollu-
tants, and create an enormous level of
noise pollution.
No Name Key was never a
planned solar community.
Homeowners were promised utilities
by developers ard the electric compa-
ny. We currently don't have commer-
cial utilities because one woman
decided she didn't want neighbors.
When she bought her property, she
knew a 13-home development
(Galleon Bay) was being built next
door. She spent years.fighting this
development. And then things got
really hinky.
This woman got herself appointed.
to the Monroe County Planning
Commission in 2001 and helped craft
land development regulation P61-01.
I think you'll find it as preposterous
as I do: "To establish a new landtise


overlay district that will prohibit the
following types of public utilities:
Central wastewater, potable water,
electricity, telephone and cable." This
LDR affected only No Name Key and
was applied to homes that were
already constructed.
So in 2001, in Monroe County, in
the United States, a law was created
that prohibited An existing community
from receiving public utilities. Are
you kidding me? Though this woman
directly benefited from the LDR, she
voted to approve it without recusing
herself. To add insult to injury, this
occurred concurrently with her as a
named intervener in an ongoing law-
suit filed by neighbors to electrify No
Name Key.
Laws to protect undeveloped areas
should not have been applied to exist-
ing homes. Truth is, a supermajority
of homeowners on No Name wants
public utilities in order to meet the
state-mandated 2010 wastewater stan-
dards. We even volunteered to pay for
these services.
We are not pro-development or
commercial power junkies, as the
local media often portrays us. The
majority of our solar systems cannot
provide the electricity we need to
power approved wastewater systems.
We are asking for fair treatment and a
"green" No Name Key.

Whew! At least one


downturn we avoided


Looking for a bright spot amid all the
talk of economic gloom, I realized
things could always be worse.
As if to prove the point, an article this
week on the decline in business travel
focused on the woes that Las Vegas is
experiencing.
You know the place, where gambling
is king and the official tourism motto is
"what happens here stays here."
Apparently, the high rollers aren't the
only visitors who are staying away.
Now add corporate America.
Part of the reason why corporate trav-
el has dropped is obvious from doom
and gloom on the economic
front. When companies are .
laying off workers, it's
unseemly when corporate
chiefs jet off for conferences
in places like Las Vegas.
That precipitous drop in
business travel and all-
expense-paid conferences
hasn't done much damage to
our Keys tourism economy
because we didn't have
much share of this lucrative
market anyway. Wayne I
There are only a dozen or Keynote
so hotel properties in the
Keys that even have meeting
room space, and even fewer with real
conference centers that can host busi-
ness gatherings of any size.
Aside from Hawks Cay Resort in the
Middle Keys and the Casa Marina in
Key West, most Keys resort hotel
properties offer more limited seating
venues.
Now, with the DoubleTree Grand Key
Resort, the Beachside in Key West, the
Marriott Key Largo Beach Resort and
the Key Largo Grande, smaller meet-
ings and conferences have been an
added source for hotel stays, and food
and beverage revenue.
But not enough and not likely to
increase anytime soon.
Tourist Development Council
Director Harold Wheeler says business
conferences account for something like
two percent of overall Keys lodging
activity.
Of the 18 to 20 larger properties with
meeting halls, no more than 12 to 20
percent of their annual bookings are
pegged to business travel, he adds.
We're a leisure destination and that
may help insulate us from the worst of


the travel woes being visited on places
like Las Vegas, which hosts 22,000
meetings and 6 million business travel-
ers a year.
A few weeks ago, President Obama
created quite a stir- when he singled out
Las Vegas as a poster child for corpo-
rate abuse of lush expense accounts by
the same financial giants now asking
taxpayers for bailouts.
Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman
fired off a letter to the president crying
foul and noting the impact when busi-
nesses stop traveling: "The meeting and
event industry creates 2.4 million jobs,
injects more than $200 bil-
lion into the national econo-
my every year, and gener-
ates $39 billion in federal,
- state arid local tax revenue."
Goodman, who is a
famous face from posing
with Vegas showgirls on
both arms, happens to be
chairman of the board of the
Las Vegas Convention and
Visitors Authority in addi-
S . tion to being mayor.
4larkham The mayor closed his let-
Publisher ter urging the president and
other federal officials "to
refrain from calling out indi-
vidual cities and/or destinations,"
adding that the "assumption that all
meetings, events and incentive travel
are wasteful is wrong."
That's music to the ears of Keys hote-
liers who hope to broaden our area's
appeal beyond leisure travel.
Robert Spottswood, president of
Spottswood Cos., was interviewed by
Keys Sunday Editor Karen Quist when
the. Beachside Resort & Conference
Center added the Marriott flag.
In December, Spottswood said the
Beachside is targeting group business
like never before, especially with the
Marriott's powerhouse marketing and
reservations system.
But he also said the company's ambi-
tious plans to develop a Key West
convention center on a 20-acre assem-
blage opposite the Beachside is on hold
for now.
How long that plan sits on the back
burner is very much dependent on the
economy and not many in the hospitali-
ty industry here - or in Las Vegas for
that matter - are willing to place a big
bet on that timetable anN tme soon.

Higgs Beach


getting spruced up


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Higgs Beach, one of the
biggest headaches for Key West
and Monroe County, is getting
more than increased police patrols
to improve the destination.
Dent Pierce, director of public
works for the county, which owns
the beach, said Thursday that his
staff will install windows in the
bathrooms, paint the pavilions"
and start a recycling program at
the beach.
"We're going to try to get that
going as soon as possible," Pierce
said.
Higgs Beach, within city lim-
its, is among the most problemat-
ic recreational areas due to the
number - and often aggressive
behavior - of the homeless that
hang out there.
"The problem is people who
live here feel they can't use the
beach," County Commissioner
Heather Carruthers said.
On Feb. 18, the County
Commission voted to spend
$40,000 to increase Sheriff's
Office deputy patrols there.
Thursday, at a Higgs Beach
"working group" meeting led by
City Commissioner Teri Johinston


and Carruthers, participants sug-
gested the Sheriff's Office use
the money to pay deputies over-
time to patrol the beach in two,
four-hour shifts that would be
staggered so would-be offenders
can't rely on a pattern.
Sloan Bashinsky, who says he
spent a lot of time at Higgs Beach
when he was homeless, pitched
the concept of a rotating shift.
"It will be like a repellent," he
said. "Quite a few homeless peo-
ple have records and they don't
want to be around police,"
A report from the Key West
Police Department shows that in
2008, city cops responded to
1,501 calls for service at Higgs
Beach, equating to nearly 500
personnel hours. So far this year,
there have been 225 calls equal-
ing 104 staff hours.
Work has also begun on a
Web site, www.friendsofhiggs
beach.com, where interested
parties can discuss topics related
to the beach.

Johnston discussing the beach
and possible solutions, go to

Rossi holds cards


close to vest


Commissioner
won't divulge
city hall choice
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West City Commissioner
Mark Rossi apparently holds the
deciding vote on where to build
a new city hall - but he's not
saying just yet what he's decid-
ed.
Rossi told the -Keynoter
Friday, "We're going to have to
wait and see how I vote. I'm not
going to disclose it."
The City Commission is
scheduled to vote Tuesday on
.whether to put a new city hall in
New Town or keep it in Old
Town.
Architecture firrh mbi/k2m
has presented the commission
with two potential sites: Wickers
Field on Kennedy Drive in New
Town or a redevelopment of the
current City Hall on Angela
Street in Old Town.
Either one would include
parking and more than 40,000
square feet of office space, and
cost between $22 million and
$26 million. The city has $13-
million in the bank earmarked
for the project and would have to
come up with financing options
for the rest.
At its last meeting, the com-
mission decided to postpone the
vote because Rossi was absent.

Keys briefs


Revised 'Glades park
alternatives released

Everglades National Park staff
on Friday released revised prelim-
inary alternatives for the park's
marine areas as part of an update to
its general management plan The
public comment period began
Friday and continues until May 15.
The last master plan for the
park was completed in 1979 and
is outdated in many ways, park
officials say. The new plan will
guide -park management for the
next 20 years or more.


Gibson and Bill Verge voted for
the New Town site, while com-
missioners Teri Johnston and
Clayton Lopez voted for Angela
Street. Commissioner Dan
Kolhage voted for Trumbo
Point, which was taken out of
the running last year.
Verge said, "I'm not in favor
of either [Wickers or Angela
Street]. I voted for Wickers not
because I want it there. I voted
for Wickers to jam it. We are in
a recession and it's going to get
worse."
Verge said he will see how
discussion goes and decide
whether to suggest tabling the
resolution while the city
explores working with the coun-
ty to move into office space at
the Gato Building or at the old
county courthouse.
Rossi said a big consideration
of the Wickers Field site is
whether there will be the same
amount of park space after con-
struction is completed.
"If there's not one inch of
green space lost for the kids over
there, it's good," Rossi said.
He also noted that if City Hall
were to go up at Wickers Field,
the current City Hall site could
be converted into public pay
parking.
"If there's one thing the city
of Key West does well, it's park-
ing," Rossi said. "It would alle-
viate a big problem."
The City Commission meets
on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Old City
Hall on Greene Street.


New scientific studies on boat
use in the park and patterns of
propeller scarring on Florida Bay
seagrasses will provide a founda-
tion for the new plan. Many Keys
anglers fear the studies will be
used to create no-fishing or no-
boating zones.
Seven public meetings on the
revisions are planned, including
two in Key Largo: One on March
30 at the Key Largo Grande
Hotel, the other at the Key Largo
Holiday Inn.

Administrator Roman Gastesi's
"dream team" of state and feder-
al lobbyists.
At a special meeting at the
Marathon Government Center,
the County Commission and
Gastesi made a last-ditch
attempt to convince five other
Keys stakeholders to help share
the cost of four different sets of.
high-powered lobbyists. The
idea is to chase available fund-
ing in President Obama's rough-
ly $800 billion federal stimulus
package.
Gastesi pointed out that a
presidential administration
change means a large number of
new jobs and appointments.
"I wanted a team with access
to the current staff at the depart-
ments," Gastesi said. "This thing
is moving and we need to either
hire a lobbyist or not. I need to
get on a plane and start going to
Washington, [D.C.:,] myself or
we need to hire someone."
But as expected, the city of
Marathon . and the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment. District
declined to join the county in
that effort. Each said it's satis-


fied with the efforts of their cur-
rent lobbyists.
Key West City Manager Jim
Scholl and Islamorada Mayor
Cathi Hill told the County
Commission their municipalities
have yet to decide on the dream
team. No one represented
Layton or Key Colony Beach at
Friday's meeting.
. The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority was the lone entity to
join forces with the county,
largely because the two work
together on central sewers in all
unincorporated areas of Moriroe
County except for Key Largo.


Gastesi's dream team would
have comprised lobbyist Ron
Book, a longtime player in South
Florida politics; Rodney Baretto
and" Brian May of Floridian
Partners LLC; Al Lorenzo of
Quantum Results; and Carl
Chidlow, Alberto Cardenas and
Colin Mueller of Tew Cardenas
LLP. Gastesi is a former employ-
ee of Tew Cardenas.
. In the end, with just the
Aqueduct Authority on board,
the commission approved hiring
only Tew Cardenas at $5,000 per
month. The county and Aqueduct
Authority will split the cost.


Council: Keep

gas tax money


County ponders
some changes
to funds formula
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The city of Marathon would
just as soon hold on to its
$290,000 in gas tax revenue pro-
vided by Monroe County.
So said the City Council
Tuesday in response to County
Attorney Suzanne Hutton's
request that Keys. municipalities
provide input on the possible
abolishment of that funding, and
other issues.
Gas-tax contracts the county
has with the municipalities expire
in July and the county - which
was never obligated to share
those funds - is considering
renegotiating the amount each
municipality receives. Marathon
has budgeted to receive $290,000
in gas tax revenue in 2009.
While the county is looking at
a possible new formula, it's also
considering increasing a pair fuel
taxes: one is a 5-cent local option
motor fuel tax, while the other is
a ninth-cent local option motor
and special fuel tax. The former
is a constitutional gas tax that's
currently 6 cents.
The constitutional gas tax is
collected by the county and
divvied up among itself,
Marathon, Islamorada, Key
Colon, Beach , and Layton
According to an interloca! agree-
ment. Each penny generates


about a quarter million dollars a
year.
City Attorney Jimmy Morales
said the county wants to redo the
interlocal agreement based on
lane .miles. The council agreed
with that idea, which would fund
the various entities based on the
amount of roads each govern-
ment maintains.
"The lane miles actually bene-
fits us and I'm for that,"
"Councilwoman Ginger Snead
said. "We have to make sure we
have to say to them we really still
want that" interlocal agreement.
Meanwhile, the council decid-
ed not to opine on the county's
proposed additional tax. -
"I think we should be quiet
about the 5-cent gas tax. I don't
think we should make a commit-
ment because we're going to get a
part of that, anyway," Snead said.
Councilman Pete Worthington
said the city should be cautious
with the county's lane-mile for-
mula.
"When they come up with the
formula, we have to be a part of
that. The county has 10 times the
lane mileage than any other
municipality in Monroe County,"
Worthington said.
"We need to keep in mind
they're controlling in excess of
10 times the lane miles. If we all
get [the same amount] per lane
mile, the county will increase its
revenue considerably," he said.
The county is expected to con-
sider the gas taxes at its March 18
regular meeting in Marathon.

Dolphin remains a mystery


Age confirmed,
but not species
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A dolphin captured off Key
West two weeks ago appears to
be 4 or 5 years old, says an
expert in Atlantic spotted dol-
phin.
"I do not think he is a calf,"
biologist Denise Herzing wrote
in her report to the National
Marine Fisheries Service after
observing the dolphin in reha-
bilitation at the Marine
Mammal Conservancy in Key
Largo.
When federal officials
authorized the capture of the
dolphin, now known as Cutter,
they feared it was a calf still
dependent on its mother for sur-
vival.
"He's probably 4 to 5 years
old," beyond the calf stage,
Herzing said Thursday when
reached at the Wild Dolphin
Project headquarters in Jupiter.
A Key West dolphin-watcher
who protested the capture as
premature said she believes the
report supports her contention
that Cutter should have been
left al6ne.
"I do think it validates what I
thought about that part," said
Capt. Sheri Sullenger, who runs
the Wild About Dolphins sight-
seeing boat from Key West.
"Now, I'm mostly interested in
finding out what happens next."
Other Key West dolphin-
watching captains have agreed
with Sullenger that the dolphin
appeared healthy when they
saw it swimming near the Key
West Coast Guard station.
Herzing said she wouldn't
second-guess the decision to
take the dolphin into custody.
"I wasn't there when it hap-
pened, and wasn't aware of the
circumstances at the time," she
said. "NMFS has specific and
detailed procedures in place for
this type of incident, and they
made their best call."
. Herzing, who has studied
wild-dolphin populations for
years, said the dolphin remains
"a bit of a mystery."
The shape of its head and
body strongly suggests it is an
Atlantic spotted dolphin
(stenella frontalis), she said -
but it lacks the spots that gave

the offshore species its common
name.
He "has virtually no spots
but yet is displaying normal
coastal spotted dolphin behav-
ior," Herzing wrote.


Some dolphins of the species
have been seen previously with-
out the characteristic spots, she
noted.
It also is possible that the
dolphin is a hybrid offspring of

the familiar Atlantic bottlenose
dolphin and an offshore spotted
dolphin, she reported.
"Hybridization is not impos-
sible and it is likely more preva-
lent than suspected," she wrote.
Federal officials now will
monitor reports on the dolphin
to decide if it should be
released.
"Ultimately we would like to
see it released" if possible,
NMFS stranding coordinator
Blair Mase Guthrie said last
week.
Herzing said she "really is
not in favor of releasing a solo
dolphin, but it has been done
before."
Sullenger said the dolphin
was seen with a pod of bot-
tlenose dolphins near Key West.
Earlier this week, a Key
West fishing captain said she
photographed a pod of spotted
dolphins about eight miles off
Key West around the time
Cutter was captured.
."There are pods out there so
I feel if it can be released, it
should be," Sullenger said. "I
don't want this to set a prece-
dent where wild dolphins wind
up in captivity facilities."

A new rate-of-growth ordi-
nance is one step closer to law
after Key West Planning Board
approval came onThursday night.
ROGO dictates where and
what kind of development can
occur based on hurricane evacua-
tion clearance times generated
after the 1990 census.
In February 2008, Monroe
County -Circuit Court Judge
Wayne Miller ruled that the city
ROGO then in place expired and
was no longer valid. The city
immediately invoked zoning-in-
progress, which is essentially a
moratorium that puts a stop to
new development with the excep-
tion of workforce housing.
Since then, the city's Planning
Department staff has attempted to
rewrite the ordinance.
Changes to it are largely
administrative and include:
* A mechanism to account for
all existing building permit allo-
cations.
+ A protocol for how to intro-
duce new allocations into the sys-'
tem - although there currently
are not any new allocations avail-


able except for workforce housing.
* + Providing for a clear time
frame on development that
receives permits.
+ An annual report to the City
Commission.
The Planning Board also
amended the beneficial-use sec-
tion of the ordinance to allow res-
idential property owners more
time to use their allocation. For
instance, a property owner that
wants to build a house on a
vacant lot but can't immediately
afford to would still be able
obtain a five-year allocation with
a possible two-year extension.
The old law had a one-year limit.
"When these lots have been in
a family for a long time, they're
more than just developable prop-
erty," city Planning Director Amy
Kimball-Murley said. "This sort
of acknowledges .that we're in a
community with multiple genera-
tions of families that live here. It
seemed like a reasonable
change."
"It really helps out people,"
says Barry Barroso, a Planning
Board member. "They're con-
cerned about having land but not

City pays county while

electronics sit idle


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
decided Tuesday to hold off on
talks with Comcast Cable about
broadcasting city meetings from
the new fire station.
Councilman Pete Worthington
said he feels $120,000 spent on
audio-visual equipment for the
station's new meeting room is
going to waste because the city
still meets at the Marathon
Government Center.
The city pays the county
$230.77 an hour to broadcast its
meetings from the government
center.
Marathon "bought top-of-the-
line equipment and we gave our
city manager a clear direction to
move forward with that more than
once," he said, referring to then-
Manager Mike Puto. "If we don't
move forward, we .have a really
expensive video system just sit-
tiog there in the fire house "
. But the. rest of the. council said


in a down economy, spending
that amount of money to ready
the fire station at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport for broadcast-
ing is unwise.
Councilman Dick Ramsay said
the city is paying lower rates now
for the government center and that
Comcast can be brought in at any
time in the future to hook up the
fire station within 60 days.
"I'm in favor of on a tempo-
rary basis not throwing any more
money at this," Ramsay said. It
will cost roughly $40,000 for
Comcast to prep the fire station
for broadcasting.
"Times change, plans change
and the council needs to be flexi-
ble as the economic conditions in
the city change also. I agree this
is not the time to be spending that
money," Vice Mayor Don Vasil
said.
Talks with Comcast have been
ongoing since 2007 to broadcast
from the fire station .... ..

having any ROGOs."
Earlier this month, the Key
West City Commission voted to
extend the zoning in progress for
six more months. It could be cur-
tailed early if a new permit allo-
cation system is approved.
Now that Planning Board
approval is in place, the next step
is approval from the City
Commission and, finally, the
state Department of Community
Affairs, which oversees most
growth in the Keys due to the
Area of Critical State Concern
designation.

Health insurance
.Mayor Morgan McPherson
has instructed city staff to run
some numbers and see how much
it would cost to give the seven
members of the Planning Board
city health insurance. Those fig-
ures were not available on Friday,
according -to city spokeswoman
Alyson Crean.
McPherson cites the fact that
the Planning Board took over the
role of the Board of Adjustment
last year and now has a signifi-
cantly larger workload. The City
Commission used to sit as the
Board of Adjustment.

Have a cigar at new Gato


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


. The finishing touches are
being put on a replica cigar
maker's cottage at the Gato
Village Pocket Park in Key West,
and the ribbon cutting is sched-
uled for 5 p.m. Wednesday.
The cottage - really just a
facade - is an art piece placed in
the small park at 616 Louis St.
It's characteristic, of cigar mak-
ers' cottages that would have pep-
pered the neighborhood near the
turn of the 20th Century.


"It's actually everything we
envisioned it to be," says Bruce
Neff, who built the structure.
"And response has been better
than we hoped."
Neff, along with his wife
Patricia Madiedo, who is
descended from the Gato family,
came up with the idea last year
and broke ground in December
after receiving approval from 'the
Key West City Commission, the
Art in Public Places Board and

Diversionary tactics?


Jail program
needs follow-up,
the experts say
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office is looking for community
partners and diversion programs
that can keep misdemeanor
offenders with mental health and
substance abuse problems out of
jail.
The goal is to focus on reha-
bilitation, according to Chris
Stone, who runs a rehabilitation
program in the Stock Island jail.
"I've spent my lifetime
exhausting a significant amount
of energy just trying to survive
emotionally and in many ways
physically also," one inmate, who
awaits deportation on drug
charges, wrote in a letter to Stone.
"I've battled with abuse, schiz-
ophrenic tendencies, depression,
anxieties, drug addiction, low self
esteem, confusion as well as
physical ailments just to name a
few. This program has opened me
up to realizations of how and
where my warped-beliefs and
compulsions manifested."
The inmate who sent that to
Stone participated, along with
120 others, in her course. It uses
guided discussion and writing
exercises to help inmates under-
stand behaviors that led to jail
time - and to teach them to
counteract those tendencies.
.Stone is auditing the addiction
studies program at Florida Keys
Community College to attain cer-
tification. Her jail course is based
on the book "Houses of Healing"
by Robin Casarjian..
Stone, as part of the local
recovery center Anchors Aweigh
Club,.was receiving grant fund-
ing to help the inmates. That
money expired at the end of last
year and now she is running the
course for free.
Stone said that for the course
to continue working after an
inmate is released, there has to be
ongoing community follow-up
and support. That's where the
Sheriff's Office enters the picture.
Chief Tommy Taylor, who's in
charge of the Monroe County
Detention Center, said the county
received a $92,568 grant to for-
mulate a mental health and sub-
stance abuse diversion program.
Now, the; plan, is ready but the


Chris Stone (center) sits with eight inmates who completed her
12-week rehabilitation program at the Monroe County
Detention Center.


money just isn't sufficient.
"It's so important to divert
them from the jail system
because they need help, no doubt
about that," Taylor said. "If a per-
son is picked up and it is deter-
mined ... based on the crime and
based on the need of this individ-
ual to divert these people to pro-
grams that are set up in the com-
munity and not send them to jail,
we're not there yet."
Taylor estimates that 20 percent
of the inmates suffer from mental
health or substance abuse issues.
Based on the Feb. 19 jail popula-
tion - 548 - that represents a big
number in need of diversion.
In addition to the community
benefit of rehabilitation, Taylor
said it makes economic sense to
divert these kind of offenders.
Monroe County taxpayers spend
between $70 and $78 per inmate
per day, he said. However, the jail
leases out bed space to the feder-
al government at $82 per inmate
per day.
So more open beds means the
potential to generate income by
leasing beds to other law enforce-
ment agencies.
Taylor said the ultimate goal is
to have people with substance

are released by the Sheriff's
Office, it's up to the community
to help with recovery.
,: "Although they give them-
medication to last three' days or
whatever,. if. they don't get in


some kind of stability program,
guess what? After three days,
they're going south again,"
Taylor said. "And when that hap-
pens, more than likely they're
going to be re-arrested and back
in jail. They're back in the same
environment. There's no addi-
tional service out there to help
these people."

Adele Gerbracht is feeling the
pinch - but even her chiropractor
husband Jim.can't quite heal it.
Gerbracht left her job as a
community liaison for the Florida
Keys Healthy Start Coalition last
May to care for her ill father, who
has since died.. Since then, she
has tried continuously to get


another job, to no avail.
"I've never had a problem get-
ting a job before," the Key Wester
said. "But each month, it's get-
ting worse and worse. I applied
for a state job. It was supposed to

said they were already interview-

Unemployment numbers re-

Monroe County had an unem-

December, lower than the state


rate of 8.1 percent but still higher
than historical norms for the Keys.
"The last interview I went to
was for a tour guide position. It
probably made $90 a week, not
including tips. It probably drew
30 applying, and it was stun-

Karen Dennis started the Stuffed Pig in a mobile lunch truck. A price war with two other restaurants
led her to rely on a strong breakfast menu, and big breakfasts remain the mainstays of the menu.


Stuffed Pig marks 25th year


Middle Keys
mainstay tosses
party Sunday
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Here's a little known fact:
Sunday is National Pig Day - a
day set aside to celebrate all
things hog-related.
One local celebration sure to
be full of enthusiasm takes place
at the Stuffed Pig, a landmark
Marathon restaurant about to kick
off its 25th year in business.
Karen Dennis and Mike
Cinque, co-owners of the eatery
at 35th Street and U.S. 1, are host-
ing a combination "fundraising


event/anniversary bash/swine
tribute on Sunday. Live music,
all-you-can-eat pork dinners and
pig races - yes, pig races -
round out the festivities, with all
proceeds going to the Grace Jones
Community Center in Marathon.
Dennis recalled her restaurant's
humble origins in April 1984.
"This place used to be a
Mexican restaurant called Hole in
the Wall, and it looked like one,
let me tell you," Dennis said.
"When Mike said we'd have it
ready to open in 30 days, I
laughed at him, but 30 days later
we were open."
Dennis said she and Cinque
couldn't afford to buy tables,and.
chairs, so they initially furnished


the dining room with *picnic
tables loaned by friends.
The Stuffed Pig was strictly a
lunch joint at first - an offshoot
of the mobile lunch truck Dennis
operated for years before traffic
became so congested she had
trouble making her route on time.
The Overseas Highway through
Marathon was only two lanes
wide back then.
After six months in business,
Dennis began offering a smatter-
ing of breakfast items at the
request of her customers. She
recalled how an early price war
waged by two other restaurants
influenced her menu - and
countless diners' waistlines.
"Those places started selling

ropractic office at 615-A United
St., Key West.
The group will focus on net-
working, resource sharing and
support.- She envisions guest
speakers discussing resume and
interview preparation, working
from home and training opportu-
nities. It's all designed to get peo-
ple back into the workplace.
Gerbracht and her husband
don't go out much anymore, and
she's even started her own veg-
etable garden to cut back on gro-
cery expenses. And her husband


is taking any patients who come
in, from the regulars to weekend
tourists who need an adjustment.
"The bartenders, the waitress-
es, they don't make it. And if they
don't have the money, they don't
go to the chiropractor, so it's a
circle," Gerbracht says.
"I've gone to a number of-job
interviews, a variety, and it kind
of came to me,", she said in
explaining why she started the
support group.
"I saw on TV a similar group,"
she said, and it seemed to be
something that could work here.
"It's kind of like, one of these
things that just came to me. I

99-cent breakfasts, and every-
body was asking me what I was
going to do about it. Well, I
refused to put a 99-cent breakfast
on the menu," Dennis said.
"Instead I created the Pig's
Breakfast, with two pancakes,
two eggs, two pieces of bacon,
two pieces of sausage, home fries
and toast for $3.95. Now it's $8
and it's our most popular break-
fast item."
And those other two restau-
rants aren't in business anymore.
Dennis gradually expanded her
breakfast menu, and the Stuffed
Pig became a popular early-morn-
ing gathering spot for locals.
Breakfast eventually became the
restaurant's mainstay, and the
employee roster grew from three
people to 11. And on any given
morning, especially during sea-
son, you can see lines of people
waiting outside to get a table.
When Jamie Lee Curtis was in
town in the early 1990s filming
the movie "True Lies," she ate at
the Stuffed Pig. But it's the
everyday folks Dennis loves to
talk about the most.
"What gets to me is when a
tourist comes in from halfway
around the world and tells me
they were sent here by someone
,else," Dennis said. "When that
happens, you know you're doing
something right."
The Stuffed Pig's National
Pig Day celebration and
fundraiser for the Grace Jones
Community Center starts at noon
Sunday at the restaurant. Tickets
are $15 for adults and $8 for kids
12 and. under. The .ticket price


covers all-you-can-eat fodd and

There's a lot of information out
there. I don't have it all but other
people have information."
Gerbracht says that locals -
employed and unemployed -
she's spoken to are willing to
lend support through speakers
and such.
"And I talked to South
Florida Workforce, and they are
also supportive of this idea," she
said.
South Florida Workforce is
charged with trying to develop
jobs and match employers and
employees in Monroe and
Miami-Dade counties. It also
provides training for the eco-
nomically disadvantaged, dislo-
cated workers, people transition-
ing from welfare to work, and
refugees. Its services are free.
Gerbracht says she's not sure
how often Support for Keys
Unemployed Professionals will
meet, but she's looking at per-
haps twice a month.
"I don't want to bum it out,
but there's also only so much
that can be said," she says.

One of the biggest parts of the

environmental initiative of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Rotary treasurer and show
Chairman Mike Petro said, "In
order to do that [the giveaway],
we have to give a class in envi-
ronmentally friendly fishing."
The brief clinic includes
pointers on howvto cast, bait and
tackle, knot tying and equipment,
as well tips on how to minimize
the impact on fragile ocean envi-
ronments while engaging in one
of the Keys' favorite pastimes.

'Company' in Marathon


Sondheim's 1970
hit entertains, and
makes you think
By MARGARET MENGE
L'Attitudes Editor

They said after 9/11 that the
era of "Seinfeld" was over. And
I think what they meant was
that we weren't really in the
mood any more to fool with
trivial things.
Similarly, as threads pull out
the seams that once held us in,
it would seem silly to watch a
musical filled only with smart
lines, bright smiles and high
kicks. In the Marathon
Community Theatre's spring
production of "Company,"
thankfully, we have much more.
In "Company," first pro-
duced on Broadway in 1970, we
follow a young man as the years
go by and he remains alone,
wondering whether he should,
or could, ever marry. Doubt
grows with every birthday. And
unlike in almost every other
Broadway musical we know,
nothing is resolved in the end.
"Company" is all about
Bobby - a handsome, single
guy living in Manhattan who at
the end turns 35, with his
friend, crazy Amy, imploring
him, before he blows out the
candles on his cake, to "make a
wish... want something!"
The words seem to stick to
Bobby like that green slime you
bought at the store when you
were a kid. They hang there for
just a moment on his coat
sleeve, then drop off and onto
the floor, as Bobby goes back to
wanting nothing, feeling noth-
ing, being sure of nothing.
Justin Ahearn, a young actor
who's recently come into the
Marathon Community Theatre's
orbit, plays Bobby. And
although his voice is not always
what it might be in some of the
songs, he carries the play with
his confidence, and his willing-
ness to show his whole self to
the audience.
"I've always had things to
accomplish," Bobby tells a
friend, who asks why he never
married.
But you've already done all
those things you set out to do,
the friend reminds him.
Bobby's various girlfriends
pine for him, and sing, in uni-

Bobby, played by Justin Ahearn, becomes more somber as
the years go by and he remains single.


son: "Will anybody ever get the
juice of you?".
The men urge Bobby to
value his bachelorhood, singing,
in unison: "Marriage may be
where it's been, but it's not
where it's at."
"Company" doesn't have a
strong plot. It's just about

Schooner Wharf Bar, at the bot-
tom of William Street, from 10

islanders themselves. You'll find
paintings, sculpture, ceramics,
jewelry, clothing, woodwork,

phy, found objects and even
woven palm fronds and carved
coconuts, all creations of the tal-
ented people working in Key

follows the Lazy Way Lane along
the Historic Seaport, toward the
tall ships at the Schooner Wharf,
and spilling around the comer onto
William Street.

cheery,...what would we do
without you," his couple friends
sing in appreciation of his
charms and friendship.
But all is not peaceful. The
women fret about Bobby, and
the men alternately express
envy at the freedom he enjoys,
while trying, sometimes, to
share a mixed bag of wisdom
about the realities of marriage.
Mike Edwards, who plays
Harry, sings one of the most
moving songs in the show,
"Sorry-Grateful," about the
strange mixed feelings about
having married: "You're always
sorry, you're always grateful,"
the song goes.
If "Company" were just
about a cad, it would be hard to
find anything in it to really hold
your attention. Blut in the play,
Bobby is really just a focal
point for all of the doubts and
questions about the choices the
other characters have made in
their lives. And Bobby is also
much more than a cad. In the
second act, his smile and easy
ways fade, and we see a more
vulnerable person underneath
that handsome pale blue suit.
"Company" was written by
Stephen Sondheim, who, while
apprenticed to Oscar
Hammerstein, wrote the lyrics
for "West Side Story" and

This is what the Marathon Community Theatre does best: Full-cast-dance pieces, with tap
dancing and singing. Bobby, played by Justin Ahearn, is shown here in the front row with three
girlfriends, while his couple friends dance behind.


"Gypsy."
"Company" was first per-
formed on Broadway at the
Alvin Theatre in April of 1970.
It was revived in 2006 at the
Ethel Barrymore Theatre, and
won a Tony Award for Best
Revival of a Musical.
The Marathon Community
Theatre's production is directed
by Rita Irwin, a native New
Yorker who, as a full-time


employee of the Dolphin
Research. Center and newly
elected chairman of the board
of the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council, has to


be THE busiest person in the
Keys.
The cast of "Company"
includes Mary Hansley, Craig
Kerns, Lisa Kendrick, Cheri


Edwards, Annie Miners, Gail
Burnett, Sylvia Rickett,
Michael Edwards, Eric Rolfe,
Becky Dailey, Lauren Spinelli,
Suzanne Terpos and Cheryl
Wilcox, who perform on a
wonderfully adaptive set, with
black risers that flip open t1-
make couches (and a bed), all
of which sits beneath four tall
screens on which we see pro-
jected in green lights the strik-
ing cityscape of Manhattan. It
is like Manhattan as you see it
in movies, all of the pretty
buildings, and nothing to muss
it up. A view unspoiled.
"Company" opens on
Thursday, March 5 at 8 p.m. at
the Marathon Community

at 5101 Overseas Highway.
The show runs every Thursday,

Gospel Explosion


in Marathon


By MARGARET MENGE
L'Attitudes Editor

The second annual Gospel
Explosion is next Saturday,
March 7 at the Marathon
Community Park, from 2-9
p.m.
Gospel Explosion has grown
this year from two churches to
four, and local singers will be
joined by out-of-towners James
McDuffy, known as the "Barry
White of gospel music" and
also by Billy Graham crusaders
John and Anne Barbour.
Gospel Explosion originated
with Mark Davis, the former
band director at Marathon High
School, who plays in the group
'Stormwatch with his son,
Clristian, and Marathon resi-
dents John Bartus and Glenn
Faast.
Davis brought the idea for
an outdoor gospel concert last
year to his pastor, Rev. Peggy
Benson of Marathon
Community United Methodist
Church, and to his friend, Rev.
Keith LaFountain, pastor at
New Life Ministries.
The New Life Ministries
band, called Remnant, will play
at Gospel Explosion starting at
4 p.m. The band, which
includes Peter Ellie on key-
boards and Chris Sivak on har-
monica, plays a thirty-minute
set every Sunday morning at
the church. They'll be playing
some of those same songs on
March 7 at the park.
The Marathon Community
United Methodist Church will
be represented with its praise
team, which goes by the name
of Paradise Praise, singing
songs like "Amazing Grace" to
the tune of the Eagles'
"Peaceful, Easy Feeling."
New this year is the 64-
member Key Largo First
Baptist Church gospel choir
known for its spectacular
Christmas concert. They'll be
going onstage at 7:15 p.m. The
Vineyard Community Church,
the biggest church in the Lower
Keys, is also new to the event
this year, sending its worship
team, to go on at 4:15 p.m.
The highlight of the Gospel
Explosion will be James
McDuffy, taking the stage at
5:45 p.m., singing traditional

Warriors, to play at 5:15 p.m.

gospel hymns with such fervor
that his voice, according to his
friend Rev. Benson, "will curl
your hair."
Admission to Gospel
Explosion is free. There will be
a bounce house and games for
kids and free hot dogs and bev-
erages for all. Donations will
be accepted for the benefit of
The Salvation Army and Keys
Area Interdenominational
Resources (KAIR), organiza-
tions that help local families in
need.
Bring your lawn chairs,
blankets, kids, neighbors,
friends and family and enjoy
the day.

Baseball team

for LaSalle
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Slaff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com,


Coral Shores' baseball
Hurricanes returfi to their home
field Monday carrying an
unblemished 4-0 record.
Most significantly, said head
coach Jeff Meyers, all the wins
came in South Florida Baseball
Conference play.
Coral Shores won the confer-
ence's inaugural season last
spring. The circuit was founded
to create a league outside of state
district play for scheduling and
another layer of competition.
The Hurricanes won this
week's two road games, beating
Palmer Trinity, 11-5, Monday
and Ransom Everglades, 15-4,


Wednesday.
"We hit the ball all over the
place," Meyers said of the 15-hit
attack against Ransom. "It gave
us a chance to play a lot of our
younger guys."
Jake Turek, a junior, drove in
four runs with a home run, dou-
ble and single. Brandon Joyce, a
freshman, slammed a two-run
homer.
Ryan Biondoletti got the
pitching start before turning it
over to relievers Drew Nobregas
and Chad White to finish.
The Canes pulled out to a 5-0
lead against Palmer, only to see
the Falcons rally to close within
5-4. But Coral Shores regained
control and pulled out to the six-
run edge.
LeDarius Sanders,
Biondoletti and Turek each had a
pair of hits.

Victoria Brisson, heaved the
shot (which looked like a heavy

Then it was the boys' turn.
Cory Rogers won the shot put

Conch teammate Kevin
Pribramsky won the discus toss
with a personal-best 117-7.
"With me, it's sheer power -.

Hurricanes were making their
presence felt. Kyle Hargis won
the 300 hurdles,. Caroline
Waterman won the 400, Latrice
Johnson won the 100-meter
dash and Joanna McCoy easily
won the girls' mile.
At the tennis courts, where
shadows were encroaching on
the boys No. 1 doubles match,
there was late drama. "And the
crowd rbars," a fan said after a
nifty Nick Scammacca shot. Bat
Scammacca and Tomita self-
destructed and lost the match,
the Conchs' only loss of the day.
Tomita angrily swatted a water
bottle before the teams dis-


persed.
The track meet continued.
While McCoy headed for victo-
ry in the two-mile run, the
Hurricanes' Cyle Marshall
relaxed after finishing fifth in
the 200 and fourth in the 100.
His arms .were fancily tattooed
- -"hope" on one, "dreams" on
the other. "Something my
grandmother told me," he said.
It was a big day for Phillip
Young, who won the high hur-
dles, the long jump, the high

Other Key West winners includ-
ed Travis Stokes (pole vault),
Michael Sohi (100), Cale Hartle
(800), Michael LaBounty
(mile), Emma Fehlig (800),
Jasmine Jones (200), Brittany
Wagoner (high jump and pole
vault) and Fran Hicks (long

The sun had disappeared
when Young, looking as fresh as
he had at 3 o'clock, raced past
the deserted tennis courts and
down the stretch in the anchor
leg for the winning Conch 4 x
400 relay team to conclude a
meet that was won, 118-22, by
the Key West boys, and 97-44

Moeller stepping down as wrestling coach


Jimenez looks
like the likely
heir apparent
By DICK WAGNER
Seynoter Contributor

After his fifth - and likely
last - season of coaching the
Key. West High School wrestling
team, John Moeller, on Monday
afternoon, tidied up the sweat-
and-bleach-scented practice area
that once was a body shop, then


ducked into his office to immerse
himself in memories.
The office was tiny, its walls
cluttered with color snapshots of
Conch wrestlers. Scattered
around were bottles of water and
disinfectant. There was a desk, a
scale, an ear, protector and a
weight chart.
Moeller, a burly 58 with a
bristly mustache and curly gray
hair on the back of his neck,
plans to step down as coach. He
expects that his assistant, Chaz

Jimenez, a teacher at the school,
will take over the team, although
that has not been made official.
"I'll just be the bus driver,"
Moeller, who long ago wrestled
at Ohio University, said with a
laugh.
He had just returned the day
before from Lakeland, where two
of his seniors, Greg Garcia and
Oscar Fernandez, had participat-
ed in the state tournament.
"I guess what I'll miss the.
most," he said, "is the moment of
victory when, after all the hard
work, you see a kid beat a good
opponent."
He looked at the many photos.
"You watch kids grow," he said.
"They come in here as scrawny
kids with no confidence, and
then you see how, four years
later, they mature as a wrestler
and a person."
More than a coach, Moeller
has been an ambassador for Key


West High.
"I've always tried to act
respectful to other coaches and
referees - and it's paid off," he

Moeller has tried to prevent that
from happening. "I've said many
times on the phone to a kid,
'Where are you? We're at prac-
tice,'," he said. "Chaz and I have
gotten into our cars to go get
them and bring them here."
And then Chaz Jimenez -
huge, earnest and only 25, a state
runner-up for the Conchs in 2001
- walked into the room to join
his father figure, his old sixth-
grade teacher, back when
Jimenez didn't know what
wrestling was.
Now, they are close friends.
Together six days a week, they
traveled 5,000 miles this season.
"I'll miss having him here,"
Jimenez said. "He's taught me a
lot. I'm more fiery, he's more
laid-back, but I've learned to be
more laid-back."
The memories washed over
them, especially Ralph Major's
state championship last season
("That five-point move he made
in the finals," Moeller marveled,
recalling how well they had
scouted Major's opponent). They
talked about the fraternity of
wrestlers and how no one who
has been on a mat will ever con-
sider it a "minor" sport.
"It takes a special person to
wrestle," Moeller said, "The only
good thing a basketball court is
for is to put a mat on it." And
with that, teacher and protege
smiled.

Lady, Conchs


steamrolling


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The hit parade for the Key
West High School softball
team continued Tuesday after-
noon in Miami as the Conchs
shut out Ronald Reagan, 22-0,
in a District 16-4A game
stopped after five innings by
the 10-run mercy rule.
It was the third consecutive
victory for the undefeated
Conchs, who are averaging 19
runs a game.
The Conchs had 19 hits,
four by center fielder Alicia
Arrazola, who had a triple,
double and two singles. "She's
an athlete who just loves to
play," coach Steve Wells said
of Arrazola, who joined the
team late because of basketball.
Madison Disson had three
hits and Ceci Cervantes,


Lauren Wells and Chelsea Storr
each had two.
On the mound, Wells struck
out five and improved to 3-0.
Freshman Rachel Quad pitched
the last two innings, striking
out three and impressing Wells.
"She was excellent," he said.
"I'm very excited about her
future."
Wells said his team feasted
on pitching that was not quite
up to speed. He said players
from Lynn University in Boca
Raton, including former Conch
Jianna Hernandez, will work
out with the Conchs on
Monday to help them get used
to faster pitching again.
The Conchs, who played
Westland Hialeah Friday, will
play their home opener at 4
p.m. Tuesday against St.
Brendan, a team they defeated
Feb. 13, 12-7..


Lady Dolphins struggling


Softball team
falls to 2-7
after 2 losses
BY RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
softball team lost a pair of
games this week against
Monsignor Pace and
Westminster Christian.
Coach Andrea Murphy said
the Dolphins played well
against strong teams, but cost-
ly -errors and missed scoring
opportunities did the team in.
Tuesday against Pace, it
was the errors, as a late-inning
misplay on a pop fly eventual-
ly led to three Pace runs. The
Dolphins led 2-1 at the time.
Marathon scored two runs
in the top half of the fourth
inning on home runs by
Shelby Kuck and Kelley
Struyf. Kuck's was an inside-
the-park home run, while


Struyf's left the park.
An error in the bottom half
of the fourth allowed a run to
score, followed by another
three in the fifth that put the
Dolphins down 4-2.

Marathon
scored two
runs in the
top half of
the fourth
inning

"It was a routine play that
we kind of botched," Murphy
said.
Marathon closed- the gap
back to one in the sixth inning.
Morgan Longstreth led off


with a double and Kuck
reached base on an error that
moved Longstreth up to third.
Samantha Rodamer then sin-
gled in Longstreth to make it
4-3.
Pace tacked another on in
the bottom of the sixth a~f
Marathon was unable to get
anything going in the seventh
inning.
Against Westminster
Thursday, the Dolphins
missed out on several scoring
opportunities, including hav-
ing the bases loaded with one
out in the first inning. The
team managed one run in the
first, but was shut out the
remainder of the game. The
final was 4-1.
Vanessa Sardina and Megn
Gardner split time on the
mound, allowing just four runs
total.
Marathon (2-7) was sched-
uled to face Archbishop
Carroll Friday; but results
were not available at press
time.

Dolphin baseball falls to Westwood


BY RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Jake Sjursen hit a home. run
for the second consecutive
game, but Marathon High
School mustered little other
offense in an 8-2 loss to
Westwood Christian School
Tuesday.
Early-season fielding woes
also plagued the Dolphins
against the Warriors, as coach


Luis Leal said a series of errors
allowed costly runs to score.
"We had four errors that just
killed us," he said. "We need to
buckle down on defense."
Leal said the Dolphins mis-
played three grounders that
allowed a total of four runs to
score.
Meanwhile, the team's young
and inexperienced roster has


struggled offensively against
what is perennially difficult
competition in the Dolphins'
district.
They've opened the season
0-3 against strong Westminster
Christian, Miami Christian and
Westwood Christian teams.
"They had two really good
pitchers and it was tough to get
anything going offensively.
Their starter pitched against
Miami Christian the week


before and held them to two
runs," Leal said of Westwood
Christian.
Senior Blaine Connell started
the game for the Dolphins and
went 3.1 innings, giving up two
runs. They came off what Ledl
said was Connell's lone mistake,
a hanging changeup hit for a
home run to a short porch in
right field.
"He got tired. It was only his
second start and he doesn't have


the armn strength to throw too
many innings," he said.
Marathon's only other run
came off a good piece of situa-
tional hitting by Luis Gonzalez.
Gonzalez hit a grounder to sec-
ond with one out to score Tyler
Roussin.
It won't get any easier for the
Dolphins, as they're scheduled
to face Westminster again
Tuesday at home at 4 p.m.

Coral Shores lacrosse teams split


Hurricane boys
romp but girls
are doubled up
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A new midfielder made a
splashy debut with six goals as
Coral Shores' boys lacrosse
Hurricanes rang up their sec-
ond victory Thursday.
Josh Ritz, playing his first
Cane lacrosse game after fin-
ishing wrestling season with a
trip to the state tournament,
collected the half-dozen scores
in a 13-3 win at Pines Charter
in Broward County.
"Josh has lacrosse experi-
ence from Maryland so need-
less to say, he's a welcome
addition to the team," said head
coach Bamaby Rich.


Charles Porter scored twice.
Defender Chris Rini scored his
first goal of the season, while
Brett Berry, Devin Morris,
Tyler Hickory and Dan Doyle
all scored solo goals. Morris
led the team in assists with
three.
"It was another strong
defensive game," Rich said. "I
never have to say a word to
those guys, they just come to
play every single game."
Goalie Austin Armstrong
recorded 10 saves.
Coral Shores (2-3) travels to
Palmer Trinity on Wednesday
for the only varsity game this
week. The JV plays at Gulliver
today, and at LaSalle Friday.
"This team has so much
skill and potential but we still
haven't played lacrosse at the
level I know we can play,"
Rich said. "We need to keep


putting in the hard work at
practice to keep climbing the
ladder."

Girls fall
Coral Shores' girls lost their
first game of the season, falling
to a strong Stoneman Douglas
club, 14-7, at home Thursday.
Douglas rattled the Canes
(2-1) with three quick scores
but Coral Shores came back to
tie it at 5-5 late in the first half.
Douglas went into the break
up, 6-5.
Head coach Mark Hall said
he used the non-district game
to give his younger players
"some valuable time on the
field against a team that is very
good."
"I was more concerned with
letting some of our new players
participate," he said. "More
than half the team did not get
on the field against Palmer last
week, so I took this opportuni-


ty."
He noted, "I think the half-
time score shows that we can
play against them. It was good,
though, that the girls had fun."
Rachel Catanio scored four
goals, giving her 20 in the first
three .games.
Defender Amber Spaulding
cut off a Douglas attack and
took the ball all the way to the
Lady Eagles net for a score.
Kayla Chew and Sarah Brown
also scored for the Lady Canes
(2-1).
Goalie Dannon Magrane
made four saves in the first
half, then played the second
half in the field while rookie
netminder Chelsea Gordon
made 11 saves in her first
extended action.
Coral Shores plays at
Douglas on Thursday, then
hosts Palmetto for a noon game
March 7.


Game is


Monday

CANES / From 30

Andrew Bynum started,
with relief from Jonathan
Rodriguez and White.
"It was good to get those
wins," Meyers said, "but
LaSalle is going to a much
tougher test."
Game time against LaSalle
at Founders Park in
Islamorada is 4 p.m. Monday.
Coral Shores travels
Wednesday to play District
16-3A contender Gulliver
Prep, then hosts conference
foe Archbishop Curley at 4
p.m. Thursday.
"If we can get out to a 5-0
record in the conference, that
could make us pretty hard to
catch," Meyers said.
