Suspect


indicted


in murder

Police say LeBaron
was lying in wait
on Gardner's boat
Keynoter Staff

A 32-year-old man was
charged Tuesday with premedi-
tated first-degree murder in the
bloody beating death last month
of a man aboard a Stock Island
boat.
The arrest warrant in the case
reads like a movie-of-the-week
script: Violence, sex, a mad
escape - but no apparent
motive. But the details are all too
real, authorities say.
Jonathon LeBaron is accused
of lying in wait in Richard
Gardner's boat cabin in the early
evening of Feb. 10. Gardner was
led there by Kristena Whitmore,
40, according to the murder war-
rant. Murder, or accessory,
charges against her are likely.
The warrant says Whitmore
and Gardner, 57, a Cape Coral
and New Hampshire resident,
had met online through craigslist,
where she had posted an ad, and
he had paid her for oral sex on
"numerous occasions." That car-

Realty firm files bankruptcy


Prestige had

Century 21 Prestige - the
second largest real estate compa-
ny in the Keys by volume last
year - filed for Chapter 11 bank-


ruptcy protection in Miami on
Monday.
But the company, which oper-
ates six offices in the Middle and
Lower Keys, as well as others in
Fort Myers and Ohio, will remain
open. Prestige's Keys General
Manager Dave Lunsford said the
filing is a reorganization of debt.
"As far as running the offices
and salaried people, nothing


changes," Lunsford said. "It
shouldn't even be categorized as
the word bankruptcy. What
they're doing is reorganizing
their debts."
According to the company's
U.S. Bankruptcy Court filing, the
company owes money to at least
200 creditors and as many as 999.
The filing shows a list of cred-

The two sides involved in the
contested November election for
Monroe County Circuit Court
judge .are bogged down hunting
for 13 voters - and now the
county has asked for some
relief.
At stake are 69 rejected
absentee ballots under lock and
key in Tallahassee.
74 - On Feb. 26,
S.. . the County
,'< t Attorney's
, -4 -.s Office asked
Leon County
" Circuit Court
Judge Kevin
- Davey, who is
hearing the
SLATON election chal-
lenge, to
appoint a special master to open
the ballots and divide them
according to whether a vote was
even cast in the judicial race.
"Basically, he denied Ait for
now," Chief Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said
Tuesday. "He wanted us to see if
we could get further in the
process" of locating voters.
/-,:. M a r y
S.anden Brook
"' lost the elec-
tion to Tegan
" Slaton by four
votes after a
ballot review
and two
recounts. She
sued in
VANDEN BROOK No vembe r,
asking for either a new election
or the results to be overturned.
While her challenge - she
sued Slaton, the state and county
election canvassing boards, and
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer - plods through the
system, Slaton has been hearing
cases; he took office in January.
The county, representing the
local canvassing board and
Sawyer, wants to concentrate its
efforts on deposing voters that
actually voted in the judge race
and not waste time looking for
people that didn't vote for either
Vanden Brook or Slaton.
After initial arguments in
January, Davey ordered both
sides to depose the absentee vot-
ers whose ballots were rejected
because the signatures on the
ballots didn't match, according
to the local canvassing board,
signatures on file at the elections


office.
The goal of the depositions is
not to ask the voters which can-
didate they selected, but to veri-
fy that they did indeed cast the
ballot and want it to count. Once
that's done, Davey could opt to
have some or all of the 69 bal-
lots opened and counted.
As of Tuesday, the deposi-
tions broke down thusly:
* 44 of the 69 voters whose
ballots were rejected had been
deposed.
* Seven more are set for
deposition in the coming weeks.
* 13 have yet to be contact-
ed.
* Two voters are medically
unable to be deposed and
Shillinger said, "We're going to
ask the judge to write those off."


* One voter has since died.
* One voter has submitted an
affidavit saying she didn't sign
her ballot for medical reasons.
* One care giver has submit-
ted an affidavit on behalf of a
voter saying the care giver
signed the ballot under power of
attorney.
The absentee voters that have
been deposed have been scat-
tered all around the country and
include college students, snow-
birds and county residents living
or serving abroad. Two of the
upcoming depositions are taking
place in Guatemala and
Okinawa, Japan.
"Some of these election con-
tests have dragged on for years,"
Shillinger said. Referring to
Davey, "He's mindful of the
timeliness."

nal relationship ultimately led to
his death, authorities say.
Here's what went down,
according to the warrant:
Whitmore and LeBaron were
girlfriend and boyfriend since the
fall. In February, she contacted
Gardner, after the craigslist rela-
tionship developed, and told him
she had nowhere to stay; he
offered to let her stay on his boat
at the Oceanside Marina. That
was supposed to be Feb. 10.
But the night previous,
Whitmore and LeBaron showed
up at the marina and stayed on the
boat, unbeknownst to Gardner.
The following night, Feb. 10,
Gardner arrived at the marina and
met Whitmore outside the boat.
Gardner was carrying a flashlight
and entered the cabin through the
hatch, with Whitmore close
behind.
LeBaron "was waiting inside
the cabin of the vessel.
[Whitmore] then stated that when
she got to the bottom of the stairs,
the flashlight suddenly went out
and she felt a weight on her as Mr.
Gardner fell back against her.
"She then heard sounds of a,
struggle and noise she described
as bones crunching. The autopsy
confirmed that Mr. Gardner suf-
fered a broken upper and lower
jaw as well as having numerous
teeth knocked out."


Whitmore told authorities she
was pinned under Gardner during
the struggle but at some point,
Gardner "moved off of her" and
fell into cushions.
He also reportedly pleaded for
his life: "Please don't kill me;
I've got money."
Someone turned on the cabin
lights and, Whitmore told investi-
gators, she saw Gardner bloodied
'and heard "gurgling noises" com-
ing from his direction.
LeBaron then "threw her a
pair of pants and told her to get
cleaned up and they needed to get.
going," the wan-ant says.
They then took Gardner's
1999 Mercury Marquis and head-
ed north. While still driving out of
the Keys, while crossing a bridge,
LeBaron reportedly tossed a
switchblade, hammer and
Whitmore's cell phone from the
car.
Gardner's body was found
aboard the boat on Feb. 13.
On Feb. 21, LeBaron and
Whitmore were pulled over in
Gardner's car in Memphis, but let
go. They were later arrested in
Salt Lake City, where they are
jailed, on probation-violation
charges unrelated to the murder.
LeBaron and Whitmore were
arrested after someone gave an
anonymous tip to Salt Lake City
police that the pair was at a Motel
6 in Midvale, which is just out-
side Salt Lake City.

Guides digest latest park proposals


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Everglades National Park
staffers return to Key Largo
twice this spring to learn what
Keys residents think about new
proposals to manage Florida
Bay.
After the latest set of alterna-
tives was released Friday, local
conservationists and fishermen
were still assessing the propos-
als this week.
"It's extremely complicated,"
said" backcountry fisherman
Sandy Moret, an outspoken crit-
ic of park plans for Florida Bay
offered in 2007.
"We've looked at them, read
them and scanned them again,"
said Moret, who teaches sport-
fishing in Islamorada. "We're
working on it very hard, but
we're not sure where we are
yet."
Robert Clift, a Keys repre-
sentative of the National Parks
Conservation Association, said
Tuesday, "We're glad the alter-
natives are out but we are literal-.


ly just now digesting the infor-
mation."
In 2007, proposed bay-man-
agement proposals released by
Everglades National Park drew
heavy response - much of it
strongly negative.
A coalition of sportfishing
interests from Islamorada and
Key Largo wrote their own pro-
posal, called Alternative E, that
eventually won the support of
the Monroe County Commission
and Islamorada Village Council,
among other groups.
"I'm kind of encouraged
because this shows [park man-
agers] listened to what we're
saying and that's a neat thing,"
said Islamorada angler Jim
Trice, a lead author of
Alternative E.
Mandatory boater education,
a key element of Alternative E,
is mentioned in three of the four
alternatives - now numbered 1
through 4 - released Friday.
Most of the plans also recom-
mend creating various types of
management zones, which

cured claims, which total
$779,278.
Century 21 Prestige claims
assets between $500,000 and $1
million in the filing, and estimat-
ed debts anywhere from $1 mil-
lion to $10 million. The largest
claim is $239,570, by Century 21
Real Estate LLC out of
Parsippany, N.J.
"We had some business issues
we've been trying to resolve with
the franchisor for quite a number
of months. It came to the point that
to preserve all of our rights we had
to file," Century 21 Prestige attor-
ney Chad Pugatch said. He
declined to elaborate on other
issues, citing the ongoing filing.
Pugatch said the numbers are
vague for now because an emer-
gency filing was made Monday.
He said the first hearing on the
filing is scheduled for 4 p.m.
Friday in Miami, but that Prestige
has 15 days to file final figures.
"After that, it's somewhat
flexible. We'll start the process of
formulating our reorganization
plan," Pugatch said, adding the


law allows debtors 120T days to
propose a plan.
Lunsford acknowledged
Prestige's offices have been losing
money for four years, but the filing
Chapter 11 allows the company to
repay its debts rather than write
them off with a Chapter 7 filing.
"Instead, they did [Chapter]
11 reorganization so that they can
pay everyone, and I think that's
important for your standing in the
community," he said.
According to numbers com-
piled by Coldwell-Banker
Schmitt Real Estate Co., Century
21 had a 9.1 percent market share
last year, selling $123.2 million
worth of property. Prestige had
nine offices when those figures
were gathered.
Lunsford said Prestige now
controls just six offices, after a
deal was worked out with origi-
nal owner George Nyman to take
back three in the Upper Keys.
In October 2007, Prestige's
Marathon office merged with All
Pro Real Estate and took on five
new agents. Lunsford said
Prestige employs 62 agents and
18 salaried employees in Monroe
County.


would range from slow-speed
areas to paddle-only zones.
Some waters could be designat-
ed for polling or electric trolling
motor only, with combustion
engines limited to marked chan-
nels.
The extent of the most
restrictive zones changes in each
alternative, with Alternative 4
being the most restrictive pro-
posal.
Comments are collected in a
period ending May 15. The
options:
* Alternative 1 changes little
in bay management, except to
better mark existing navigation
channels.


+ Alternative 2 "would rely
on a mandatory permit system to
educate visitors about park
resources and how their behav-
ior can help protect them.... This
alternative relies primarily on
well-educated park users to pro-
tect the park's natural and cul-
tural resources...."
* Alternative 3 suggests
"Florida Bay waters would be
zoned to better protect shallow
waters having high levels of
documented damage to seagrass
resources." A 300-foot-wide no-
wake zone would be established
along the mainland shore
between Flamingo and the
Middle Cape.


* Alternative 4 is the most
aggressive in "erring on the side
of resource conservation when it
comes to potential resources at
risk." Areas of limited access
could cover not just areas with
existing propeller or grounding
damage, but areas less than 2
feet deep considered "at risk of
bottom damage."
The first public comment ses-
sion is March 30 at Key Largo
Grande Hotel, mile marker 97.
Park officials return for an
April 13 meeting - to be broad-
cast on the Internet - from the
Key Largo Holiday Inn, mile
marker 99.7.

Green iguanas like this are becoming more and more of a nuisance to Keys residents.
Marathon Veterinary Hospital owner Doug Mader is trying to correct what he says are
misperceptions about the animals.


Iguanas spur debate


How they arrived,
how to euthanize
split opinions
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com-

Marathon veterinarian Doug
Mader says shooting iguanas in
the head is a bad idea.
The renowned reptile special-
ist took umbrage with the notion
that shooting the animals at close
range' is a humane euthanization
method, and other "myths," in a
talk last Wednesday to the
Marathon Rotary Club.
The impetus for his outreach
was the euthanization of 65 green
iguanas at Bahia Honda State
Park, where the animals were
destroying the habitat of the
endangered Miami blue butterfly.
The killings were done from Feb.
12 to 27.
According to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission. exotic-
species coordinator Scott Hardin,
the animals were shot in the head
at close range.
"It is one of the generally
accepted, humane ways of doing
it," Hardin said.. "There's lots of
ways to do it, but a shot to the
head that renders it lifeless almost


immediately is humane in most
people's eyes."
Hardin said the FWC has no
plans for a Keyswide iguana
sweep because iguanas are not a
menace to the islands' ecology;
they're more of a pest to home-
owners, he said, because they eat
their flowers.
The question is: Do they have a
right to eat people's flowers? It's
long been said that green iguanas
were released into the wild by
overwhelmed pet owners or
escaped when inclement weather
destroyed their enclosures.
But Mader says it's "complete-
ly incorrect" to say iguanas didn't
reach the Keys through natural
migration from other islands. He
told the Rotary that green iguanas
are also found in Mexico, as well
as Central and South America,
and can be traced as far back as
the 1950s in the Keys.
Hardin says it's a misconcep-
tion that the problem started in
the Keys and that iguanas were
native to Florida. He cites Dr.
Kenneth Krysko of the Florida
Museum of Natural History.-
"There is no recent or past fos-
sil evidence that suggests that
iguanas ever lived in Florida. The
earliest we date it back is the


early 1960s in Miami," he said.
And he disagrees with Mader,
saying that pet releases are likely
to blame.
Mader also talked about the
growing iguana population, cit-
ing "reverse habitat encroach-
ment" as a problem. Iguanas are
'not vegetarians but folivores,
meaning homeowners are essen-
tially inviting them into the yard
by planting nonnative flowers.
Mader recommends feeding
' stations for iguanas in the yard,
which trains them to go to one
place and not eat flowers. He also
suggested another way to control
their population - round them
up and sell them.
Iguanas are the most popular
reptile species in the country,
Mader said, with more than 7
million households keeping them
as pets.
"People love them. It's not
uncommon to have a $2,000 bill
for a sick iguana and people don't
think twice about it," Mader said.
But the most realistic method
of controlling the iguana popula-
tion, Mader said, is "trap, neuter
and release."
Dominant orange males,
responsible for almost all repro-
duction, can be heutered and
released back into the wild.

Red snapper


closure possible


Keynoter Staff


An emergency regulation to
close red-snapper fishing in
South Atlantic waters for several
months will be considered by a
federal fishery management
council this week.
The South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council is meeting
in session in Jekyll Island, Ga.
If the council approves an
emergency closure riecommend-
ed by federal staff managers, a
public hearing will be held
Thursday at the meeting.
As proposed, all fishing for
federal Atlantic waters from
North Carolina to. Key West


could be halted for 180 days,
with the option to extend the clo-
sure another six months.
The measure is intended to pro-
tect the depleted stock of adult red
snapper until a management plan
can be written: Biologists fear that
older red snapper, the most pro-
ductive breeders, have nearly dis-

Charges added for
battery suspect

A man arrested for allegedly
cutting another man during a
fight Feb. 25 on Plantation Key
is now under arrest for burglariz-
ing a home, then selling some of
the take.
The burglary on Kahiki Drive

being cut on the face. The victim
of the fight told them he and
Jorge Villareal were fighting the
night before over six rods and
reels he'd bought from Villareal,
and he said Villareal cut him on
the side of the face during the
fight. Villareal was arrested the
following day and charged with
aggravated battery.
Villareal, 42, is charged
Monday with stealing the fishing
gear from Kahiki Drive home.
He's charged with burglary,-
grand theft and dealing in stolen

Pribramsky wants outside probe


ACEVEDO / From 1

gone back to July 2008.
Griffiths said it appeared
Acevedo reimbursed the district
for most of the purchases, but
there might be several missing
receipts.
Randy Acevedo said he was
aware his wife used the district
credit card but he "was not keep-
ing up with all the purchases."
Acevedo said both former
Deputy Superintendent Frankie
St. James, who now works on'
contract, and current
Instructional Services Director
Mike Henriquez would've.had
the authority to approve
Monique Acevedo's expenses.
However, Acevedo said there
are other problems with pur-
chase receipts that will have to
be revamped procedurally.
Due to the credit card issues,
Reitzel refused to sign a docu-
ment attesting that the financial
information the district is provid-
ing to auditors for the 2008-09
school year is complete and not
fraudulent, school officials said.
"She could not say with cer-
tainty if fraud had or had not been
committed, and because of that
doubt she can't sign it," Griffiths
said. "I'm sure it was one of hard-
est things she's probably ever had
to do in her career - tell her boss
she couldn't sign it."
Randy Acevedo said Reitzel
approached him and said she
would not sign the audit docu-
ment unless there was an
attached addendum document-


ing her concerns with the credit
card transactions. Acevedo said
both he and Reitzel signed that
addendum.
"Kathy came to me with her
concerns. It wasn't fought in any
way," Acevedo said.
Reitzel didn't return calls for
comment on Tuesday. School
Board member Steve Pribramsky
said he was told Reitzel was not
at work on Tuesday.-
Griffiths said Reitzel first told
state auditors in Miami about the
credit card purchases and her
inability to sign what is called
a "management representation
letter."
In previous years only super-
intendents were required to sign
the letters, but now superintend-
ents and finance directors must
sign them.
"It is very broad," said Greg
Centers, schools audit manager
for the Auditor General's Office.
"It covers federal compliance,
financial statement presentation


- basically a document that
says, 'We are responsible for the
district's records and financial
presentation.'"
"The letter states what they
are responsible for and holds
them accountable for what they
prepared," he said.
Griffiths said he was instruct-
ed by state auditors to contact
the School District's attorney,
who on Tuesday morning called
the rest of the board members.
"I hold Kathy Reitzel in very
high regard, and for her not to
sign off on an audit [form], I
think is pretty serious," said
Pribramsky, who is an account-
ant. "Accountants take that kind
of stuff seriously, and it probably
puts her license on the line."
Pribramsky said he wants an
outside agency, and not the dis-
trict, to conduct an investigation
and explain to the board what
had happened. Board member
John Dick agreed.

Keys Opinion


Lawmakers brace for

tough budget blows

Just in case you didn't prepare for the big blow this week, bat-
ten down the hatches - the Florida Legislature is in session.
Facing record revenue shortfalls, lawmakers are struggling
with how to cut more services and people in what will be round
three of budget cuts that began in 2007.
You can blame the economy, poor planning, Florida's lack of
balanced revenue streams - actually all three - for the dilem-
ma. And add some partisan posturing as" the Republican-led
Legislature wrestles with the onus of accepting $12 billion in
federal bailout money.
Republican Gov. Charlie. Crist embraces the money as a
badly needed lifeline during these hard times. But powerful
Florida House and Senate GOP leaders have been less enthusi-
astic, especially since their national party has soundly rejected
deficit spending that goes along with more federal bailouts.
During the next 60 days, Floridians will hear some wild and
crazy ideas for addressing the state budget squeeze.
One of our favorites emerged earlier this week with a pitch to
begin taxing water bottlers for a resource they now draw virtu-
ally gratis from Florida's underground aquifers and natural
springs.
Crist has proposed a 6-cents-a-gallon state tax. This would hit
big corporate bottlers like Coca Cola, Pepsi Co. and Nestle
Waters of North America.
Nestle, for example, currently takes 500,000 gallons a day
from underground springs in Madison County and pays a one-
time $150 local water permit.
Crist wants water to be treated like phosphate - oil or natu-
ral gas for which companies pay fees or royalties.
This is one of many "user fees" likely to be discussed in the
state capitol over the coming weeks.
The state estimates a 6-cent-a-gallon fee would raise $56 mil-
lion the first year, raising the price of a pint bottle of water by
less than a penny.
Since environmentalists are waging a campaign against
wasteful manufacture of millions of plastic bottles, this could
be a win-win for lawmakers and the green revolution.
Now, how about raising the state tax on cigarettes? The
Senate appears to favor increasing state taxes from the currentL
33.9 cents per pack (the tax hasn't been increased in 19 years)
to $1 per pack,
That could raise 10 times as much as the bottled water fee.
But expect more dodging and ducking in Tallahassee since the
cigarette lobby is stronger than Coke or Pepsi's lobbyists.

Support travel to Cuba
EDITOR;
On Feb. 4, U.S. Rep. W. Delahunt, D-Mass,
introduced the "freedom to travel to Cuba" leg-
islation in the House of Representatives. This
act would allow unrestricted travel by U.S. citi-
zens to Cuba. It does not take a crystal ball to
see that if this legislation passed, the effect on
the Keys real estate market would be tremen-
dous.
The opportunity for U.S. citizens to own a
property in the Keys, which is just a boat ride
away from a country that could possibly be a
major resort destination in the future, would be
overwhelming.
Anyone who understands the Cuban embargo
and the Cuban Refugee Act knows .that the acts
were needed decades ago but have now become
Cold War relics. Simply put, today's arriving
Cuban refugees to Florida are not freedom fight-
ers. They are economically depressed migrants.


That is the major difference between the Cuban
exiles of the 1950s through early 1980s, who
were legitimately fleeing persecution.
Proof of this is the 2003 travel ban that then-
President Bush enacted due to the massive
amounts of arriving Cuban migrants who would
touch U.S. soil claiming they had just escaped
Cuba, and then upon receiving their green cards
would apply for a U.S. travel permit to go back
and forth to Cuba for every manner of purpose.
You can't have it both ways;- you are either a
fleeing refugee or you are not. Legitimate
refugees do not go back and forth to the country
they supposedly escaped from.
Florida Keys residents should contact
Congressman Delahunt and offer their support
for his courageous bill, as most politicians in the
U.S. are terrified of touching the Cuban issue.

Gold Man 'loved' his role


Performer's
body found
at Outer Mole
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Police have identified a
body hat washed up at the
Outer Mole in Key West on
Sunday as James Nesbit, 38,
better known as the Gold Man
at the Mallory Square Sunset
Celebration.
Alyson Crean, police
spokeswoman, said, "There
weren't any signs of foul play.
We'll know more after the
medical examiner is finished"

"He was the Gold Man,"
Michael Nesbit said. "That was

Marley, mon, rocks Key West Missile site


Son of reggae
star channels
iconic father
Keynoter Staff

What we'll call the smell of
incense hung thick over the pier
at the Ocean Key Resort at 0
Duval St. on Friday night.
There was a palpable sense
of anticipation as excited fans,
old and young, waited for
Stephen Marley, son of reggae
icon Bob Marley, to take the
stage.
The sense of urgency was
compounded when tickets,
around 1300, sold out around 8
o'clock; those in the know saw
that coming and opted for the
sure bet - less-expensive
advanced tickets.
The horns hit the high notes,
the bass pumped the low end
,and Marley covered everything
in between with his soaring
vocals and punchy guitar riffs.
He pumped out some of his
dad's classics like "Redemption
Song," "Get Up Stand Up" and
"Is This Love."

from New York exclusively to
commune with Marley's music,-

Park service
opens up tours
to Nike location
Associated Press

At the height of the Cold War,
anti-aircraft missiles stood at the
ready in Florida's swamplands,
protecting the South from a
potential Soviet nuclear bomber
attack launched from Cuba.
For almost two decades,
beginning shortly after the 1962
Cuban Missile Crisis, the HM-69
Nike Hercules Missile Site was
manned by about 100 military
personnel, one of the last lines of
defense if the unthinkable hap-
pened. When it closed in 1979,
the park took control of the site.
Now the site is undergoing a
rebirth of sorts as a public
exhibit, drawing the curious
who want to see the Cold War
relic along with those who
stumble upon it while visiting
Everglades National Park.
With a $10 Everglades
admission fee and a phone call
to park officials, tourists can
join the hour-long driving tour
of the Nike site, which was
included on the National
Register of Historic Places in
2004. Although the missiles
were dismantled and removed,


visitors can see the site's admin-
istration building, the tiny mis-
sile assembly shed, the missile
barns and protective berms.
Tours continue through March,
during the park's peak season.
Sites like this sprung tip dur-
ing the Cold War to defend U.S.
cities from attack and send the
Soviets a message of strength.
The missiles in South Florida
were certainly not hidden - at
41 feet tall, anyone could see
them. While some Nike missiles
were nuclear-tipped, Air Force
spokesman Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis
said the weapons at the
Everglades site probably weren't.
"You could just drive down
the road and see them setting out
there," said Bobby Jones, who
was transferred to the site in
1965, when it was still a tempo-
rary operation. "The missiles
were setting on trailers ...
everything was mobile. We
could move within an hour. The
radar and everything."
Park officials said interest
has been high in the landmark,
which takes on a greater rele-
vance this year, the 50th
anniversary of the Cuban
Revolution. They have already
added an extra day to the tour
schedule.

House Dems tap Saunders to lead


Representative
elected party's
chief for '10-11
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.com

When the Florida Legislature
convenes in March 2010,
Monroe County's Ron Saunders
will be the top-ranking
Democrat in the House of
Representatives.
Saunders was elected
Tuesday by House Democrats to
serve as the House party leader
from 2010 through 2012 -
assuming he's re-elected in
2010.
"It will be interesting,"
Saunders said by telephone from
Tallahassee during the first day
of the 2009 legislative session.
"It's the first time we'll have [a
House party leader] from
Monroe County."
As the designated incoming
House minority leader this ses-
sion, Saunders will work on
party issues and fundraising for
the 2010 statewide elections.


While
House
- Democrats are
in a decided
minority this
term - 44
seats to the
Republicans'
76 - a change
SAUNDERS of 17 seats in
2010 could
see Saunders become speaker of
the House - a position of enor-
mous influence - in 2011.
"I expect to pick up a few
seats, but getting to 61 [majority
seats] is not something I'm
counting on," Saunders said.
"But technically, it could hap-
pen."
If the Democrats remain in
the minority, Saunders said he
plans to "work with our caucus-
es, help direct policy and try to
help elect some other members."
The House minority leader
typically has a more visible role
than most representatives, and
often serves as the point person
on negotiations with the majori-
ty party.
Saunders won Tuesday's


party ballot by two votes over
state Rep. Perry Thurston of
Plantation.
"There were differences
between us on some issues but
we're all united now and rolling
along," Saunders said.
Thurston told reporters that
he doesn't have any hard feel-
ings and plans to support
Saunders when he takes over.
"People supported him, peo-
ple supported me and he won,"
Thurston told the Miami Herald.
Saunders served in the House
of Representatives from Monroe
County from 1986 to 1994
before stepping down to run for
secretary of state. He returned to
the House in 2006 after Monroe
County's Ken Sorensen, a
Republican, was term-limited
out.'
Saunders chaired House com-
mittees in his first stint, "but we
were the majority party then.
Being in the minority is a com-
pletely different situation."
This term, -the fifth-genera-
tion Key Wester is the ranking
Democrat on the House
Appropriations Council on
Education and Economic
Development, and sits on the


Joint Legislative Budget
Commission.
Much of this year's two-
month session is expected to
focus on state budget problems.
"It's been a good day so far,"
he said of Tuesday's opening
day. "We haven't really gotten
started so we haven't had to cut
anybody's budget yet."

"There was only between

In the end, it was the
Sombrero Beach Road project
that ranked, Burnett said. But
the total cost will be more than
$1 million, so it's up to the
City Council to find, the
remainder.
Burnett said the project
would be much like the one
DOT completed in May last
year on Sombrero Beach
Road. The project ended at
Avenida Primaceria near the


beach, where the stimulus-
funded project would begin.
Among, the scope of
planned improvements:
Landscaping upgrades,
repaving the road, adding up
,to 50 parking spaces at the
beach, building a cul de sac at
the end of the road, installing
crosswalks and stormwater
management.
"It's already in their work
program, but if we can get
stimulus money and get it
done now, that's what we want
to do," Burnett said.
Meanwhile, sewer system-
related roadwork continues
around the city, including a
large project on Sombrero
Boulevard. To prevent flood-
ing in that area, wastewater
system designers Weiler
Engineering are raising and
stabilizing the road.
"As you're coming in from
Sombrero Beach Road, the
road bounced up and down.
The sub-base under there is all
old fill and clay and soupy
stuff; pretty fluid," Weiler's
Ed Castle said. "What we're
putting out there where it's
real bad is big rock the size of

your fist wrapped in filter

Castle says the wrapped
rock helps transfer weight
loads and prevents the street
from sinking in the future.
Residents. complained to
the council last year about
flooding on the Copa de Orb
bridge that leads back to a res-
idential neighborhood. When
it floods, residents have no
way out.


"We're raising that back
there and there's a pretty good
size area in front of Dockside
Lounge that we're raising so it
won't go underwater," Castle
said.
The same type of work was
recently completed on 122nd
Street near San Pablo Catholic
Church. Cloth-wrapped rock
was used to stabilize that road
after it caved during sewer
pipe installation.


JUST DUCKY: The inaugural Marathon Master Chefs
Classic Feb. 16 at Tranquility Bay Resort Beach drew four
restaurants to face off in a culinary challenge. Among
them were these kids with the Dolphin Bistro, the Marathon
High School Pro Start Program's food service. The students
won the People's Choice award for their pan-seared duck
breast with spicy mango chutney.

Watch your bike basket


Bicyclists
are riding up,
stealing purses
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

There's a new kind-of crime
going on in Old Town Key
West: Thieves snatching purs-
es from passing bicyclists'
baskets.
Three such incidents hap-
pened last week. In all three
cases, the bike riders were
women and their purses were
stolen from their bicycle bas-
kets by a man who approached

\ ,t (Contractors are required to list

from behind on a bicycle of his
own, according to reports.
As of Tuesday afternoon,
police had made no arrests in
the cases and no suspects were
identified.
The first incident was
reported the morning of Feb.
25, when a man'called police
and said he found the contents
of a purse, and eventually the
purse itself, scattered along
the 900 block of Simonton
Street.
Later that day, police called
the victim, a Polish woman
who spoke no English, and she
identified her purse, cell
phone and keys. She said she
was missing money and jewel-
ry.
Although police had to
speak with her through a trans-
lator, they were able to ascer-
tain that the robbery happened
while she rode her bicycle.
The next day, just after 7
p.m., Naomi Turner flagged a
police car down. Turner, visit-
ing from Massachusetts, said a
white Man on a bicycle rode
past her in the 1100 block of
Duval Street and snatched her
fanny pack from the front bas-
ket of her bicycle, reports said.
Turner then followed the
man from Duval onto Virginia
Street near the county-owned
Gato Building. She described
him as white, around 6 feet tall


and about 185 pounds.
Police searched the area but
couldn't find anybody fitting
the description given by
Turner. She lost her keys,
credit card, ATM card and cell
phone.
Kathleen Glasscock, visit-
ing from Indiana, reported the
third incident just half an hour
after Turner's encounter and in
the same general area of Old
Town, according to reports.
Glasscock turned off of
Truman Avenue and was head-
ing north on Windsor Lane
when her purse was snatched.
She told police a man on a
bicycle rode around on her left
side and grabbed her straw bag
from front basket. She report-
ed her digital camera and cell
phone gone.
She couldn't get a good
description of the perp
because it was too dark. But
she was able to tell police that
it was a tall, white man with
short or buzzed hair, according
to reports. She also told police
the guy was riding' a "nice
bicycle," probably not a rental.
Police spokeswoman
Alyson likened these incidents
to other crimes of opportunity,
such as snatching purses or
other items off bars or tables
while the owners are dancing
or otherwise distracted. She
also noted crimes like this
spike during tourist season,
January to April.

County

may


declare


itself


disaster
Associated Press

Just five years ago, Port St.
Lucie was America's fastest-
growing large city. Then the fore-
closure crisis slammed it like a
hurricane.
Today it sits in one of the
hardest-hit counties in the nation.
Thousands of houses are empty
or unfinished. Neighborhoods
are littered with for-sale and fore-
closure signs and overgrown,
neglected yards. Break-ins are on
the rise.'
But one politician believes he
has a solution: Declare St. Lucie
County a disaster area as if it had
been hit by, well, a hurricane.
"This is a manmade disaster,"
County Commissioner Doug
Coward acknowledged. But he
said that is why "we've got to do
something. Clearly, the econom-
ic crisis of the country far
exceeds the ability of local gov-
ernments to solve it, but we're
trying be a part of the solution."
The declaration would allow
the county to suspend the usual
bidding process for shovel-ready
projects so that local contractors
would get the jobs. It would also
enable government officials to
use some of the money in a $17.5
million county fund usually
reserved for natural disasters.
The projects could, in turn,
put some residents back to work.
Other politicians fear a disas-
ter declaration could scare off
investors and drive down the
county's credit rating, which
would make it more expensive to
borrow money. But the idea has
appeal among many homeown-
ers, particularly those in the con-
struction trades, which are seeing
unemployment rates of up to 40
percent.
Jacqueline Byers, research.
director for the National
Association of Counties, said she
knows of no other U.S. county
that is contemplating such a
move.

FIRM leader


takes on new role


Repetto named
one of just 17
NAIC liaisons
Keys Sunday Staff


The executive director of Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe has
been appointed to the National
Association of Insurance
Commissioners as one of 17
consumer liaisons.
Colleen Repetto will repre-
sent the interest of everyday
consumers in discussions about
federal regulations. It's a posi-
tion that requires expertise in
insurance issues, something
Repetto has developed during
her three years of involvement
with FIRM.
The National Association of
Insurance Commissioners is
made up of the insurance regula-
tory officials from each state.
"From a consumer point of view,
I think I can bring some things to
the table," she said. "It's impor-
tant that they receive this kind of
input."
FIRM was formed in February
2006 in reaction to skyrocketing
insurance rates throughout the
Keys. A particular focus was
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp., the so-called insurer of last
resort that is run by the state.
FIRM successfully lobbied for a
substantial rate cut for Keys poli-
cyholders.
Repetto said her appointment
as one of only 17 liaisons nation-
wide is an affirmation of the
impact FIRM has been able to
make in a short time.
"It says a lot about what peo-
ple can do if they choose to do
their homework and have some
persistence and determination."
Repetto, a Marathon resident,
has been a board member since
FIRM was founded. She was
appointed executive director late
last year. She said she saw the
liaison opening, and FIRM's
board agreed that she should
apply.
"I look for insurance-related
organizations for us to get
involved in," Repetto said,
"because I think it's important
that Monroe County get on the

Colleen Repetto was one of the founding board members of
Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe (FIRM). A retired vice president
of sales in a national transportation company, she's lived in


Marathon for the last 14 years.
map."
One of the requirements is
that liaisons represent a nonprof-
it organization that serves to pro-
tect the interests of consumers as
they relate to the regulation of
insurance.
"That certainly defines
FIRM," Heather Carruthers,
president of FIRM's board,
wrote in a news release
announcing Repetto's appoint-
ment. "We are delighted to have
such a dedicated and informed
advocate representing us and all
insurance consumers on this
national level."
The mission of the National
Association of Insurance
Commissioners is to serve the
needs of consumers and indus-
try, with an overriding objective
of supporting state insurance
regulators as they seek to protect
consumers and maintain the
financial stability of the insur-
ance marketplace. The liaison
program promotes consumer
representation and interaction
with association members by
paying the way for Repetto and
others to participate in its meet-
ings.
FIRM's next priority is the


legislative session that started
Tuesday. Florida lawmakers will
take up a proposal that they end a
three-year freeze on Citizens
rates.
Rates would start to go up in
January 2010 if lawmakers fol-
low the recommendation of a
panel formed to return Citizens
to its role as an insurer of last
resort.
Repetto said FIRM wouldn't
fight fair rates, but the group will
be watching closely to make
sure Keys homeowners aren't
singled out for higher increases.
Since few private companies d6o
business in the Keys, Citizens is
a predominant insurer, particu-
larly for windstorm policies.
There were 27,967 Citizens poli-
cies in Monroe as of Dec. 31.
Repetto said she'll be attend-
ing four NAIC meetings this
year, including one in San Diego
from March 11 to 16. But she
said FIRM's contacts in
Tallahassee will keep the group
apprised of what's happening on
the insurance front while she's
out of state.
"If there's something that
needs our attention, we'll be able
to deal with it," she said.

Baseball team
takes 4-1 mark
to Gulliver
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer

Coral Shores' baseball
Hurricanes follow one tough
team with another today.
The Canes (4-1) lost their
first game of the regular season
Monday in a 6-3 decision to
LaSalle (5-3) at Founders Park.
Today, Coral Shores heads
to Gulliver Prep to face the
defending District 16-3A
champion Raiders.
"If we get the pitching and


hitting that we got against
LaSalle, we'll be able to play
with Gulliver," said Hurricane
head coach Jeff Meyers. "Our
guys are playing well."
The Canes owned an 8-4
hitting edge over LaSalle's
Royal Lions (5-3) Monday, but
the Lions made use of seven
walks and a few defensive
errors to put runners aboard in
the non-district game.
Down 6-2 in the bottom of
the seventh inning, the
Hurricanes made it interesting
by loading the bases with two
outs, but the rally managed just
one score.

Lady Fins are aces


Tennis team
beats 2 top
net squads
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
girls tennis team made an early
season statement Saturday,
handily defeating two of its five
district opponents in consecutive
matches.
The girls beat Palmer Trinity
7-0 and Westminster Christian 6-
1, with their lone loss coming in
a doubles match, Matisa
Brossard and Angela Farella's
fourth match of the afternoon.
"I told the girls ... here's
where we make a statement, and
they really came through," coach
Chris Bull said.
Brossard, the girls No. 1 play-
er, won her first match 8-0 and
her next 8-4. Farella won 8-6
and 8-3. The pair won their dou-
bles match against Palmer at
love, 8-0, and they nearly pulled
off the win against Westminster
at the end of a long day.
Brossard, a sophomore, and
Farella, a junior, trailed 4-1
before rallying to take a 6-5 lead.
But they ran out of gas, Bull
said; and lost the next three
games to fall 8-6.
No. 3 player Kelsey
Wonderlin won both her matches
Saturday by an 8-1 score. Sisters
Michelle Bellevue, a senior, and
Michaelle Rose, a sophomore,
also dominated their opponents
Saturday.
Bellevue won 8-2 and 8-1,
while Rose won 8-2 and 8-0.
Rose also paired with Marina
Kay Wiatt to win a pair of dou-
bles matches Saturday. The pair
defeated Palmer's No. 2 doubles
team 8-0 and Westminster's 8-4.
"The girls playing doubles
played four matches in a row
and to still have that resolve is a
good confidence booster for
them," Bull said.
The girls improved to 3-0 this
season after opening the year
with a 4-3 victory over Key
West. The team was without
Brossard in that match.
The boys team struggled
against the Falcons and
Warriors, losing 0-7 and 1-6
respectively. Bull said boys

UPPER KEYS I


Against Pats,
no offense
for Key West
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It was a lost weekend for the
Key West High School baseball
team, which scored only two
runs in two games against
defending national champion
American Heritage.
After suffering a 10-0, six-
inning defeat on Friday night,
the Conchs couldn't wait for
Saturday evening and a chance
to get even. They had to wait
longer than expected - the
lights wouldn't come on in two
Rex Weech Field towers until
Keys Energy Services arrived to
fix the problem. A game that
was supposed to begin at 7:30
didn't get under way until 8:20.
And when it did, the Conchs
displayed a power outage of
their own. They got only five
hits and lost to the Patriots, 8-2.
American Heritage took the
lead with four runs in the top of
the third inning. Two scored on


a double by freshman Nick
Travieso, one on an error by
catcher Joseph Gandolfo and
one on a throwing error by third
baseman D.J. Elomina. Two
walks and two balks by pitcher
Drew Rivera didn't help.
The balk calls had coach
Miguel Menendez tossing up his
.cap in disbelief.
Key West came back with
two runs in its half of the inning.
Leading off, Charlie Walker-
Yhap drove a Jimmy Nesselt
pitch into the Jaryd Tyler Boros
Memorial Home Run Section of
the- football bleachers. Later,
Elomina, who had walked,
scored on a double by Nolan
Thomas. But Michael Arencibia
grounded out to strand Thomas
at second and Frankie Ratcliff at
third.
Brandon Sedell homered in
the fourth to extend the Patriots'
lead to 5-2. Capitalizing on the
errant deliveries of reliever J.P.
Malott (five wild.pitches), they
scored two more runs in the
sixth and one in the seventh.
About the only damage the
Conch batters could muster after
the third was a foul ball by
Gondolfo that broke the window
of a truck parked on the street.
The Conchs (2-3) did get a
one-out double from Arencibia
in the sixth, but Noah Josephson
and Gandolfo struck out to

make a quiet ballpark (the press-
box music operator had to leave
early) even quieter. It was
almost 11 o'clock when Andrew
Rodriguez lined out softly to
end the game.
It was a tough night for sen-
ior shortstop Ratcliff, who has
signed to play at the University
of Miami. He was 0 for 3, strik-
ing out twice.
But Ratcliff isn't the only
Conch who's become frustrated
at the plate.
"I think guys are pressing too
much and trying to do too
much," Menendez said. "I think
some of the guys are trying to
hit balls so far that they are
struggling. They just need to
relax. This is something that we
as coaches are going to work
with them on and get them back
to doing what we do best." .
The resurgence of Walker-
Yhap, who spent a good portion
of last season striking out, has-
n't surprised Menendez.
"I think he struggled early
last year and his confidence
went away," the coach said. "He
worked extremely hard in the
off-season and the early success
has helped him regain that con-
fidence."
The Conchs will play home
District 16-4A games against
Monsignor Pace at 8 p.m.
Friday and against Mater
Academy at 7:30 Saturday.

It's all about the 'hoos


Wahoo!
That's been the battle cry from
lots of offshore anglers, as an
inordinate number of wahoo have
been taken throughout the off-
shore areas Keyswide. I've had
reports of wahoo caught in any-
where from 80 to 800 feet of
water and beyond. Surface baits
have been taken but by far the
majority has been caught on a
wider use of diving plugs or
deep-running baits.
In the past, most anglers
achieved this with the use of wire
line rigs or downriggers. Wire line
.rigs require discipline to operate,
or you can end up with a very
expensive and almost irreparable
bird's nest. Either way, both meth-
ods limit the speed in which you
can troll but still achieve the
depths you're seeking.
With the advent of the micro
braid lines such as Tuf Line and
Power Pro, which are very strong
yet extremely small in diameter,
plus the larger diving plugs that
can work in excess of 30 or even
50 feet, novice anglers can work
the depths that seem to be abun-
dant with wahoo.
The new Rapala X-Rap 30+
high-speed diving plugs have
taken this type of deep trolling off
the reefs and opened up offshore
waters to those who don't need
additional equipment just to work
a deep bait.
The Mann's 30+ deep diving
plugs will work well up to 9
knots but have a much better
chance of catching sea gulls than
fish when working at any greater
speeds. The new Rapala can be
trolled upward of 13 knots and
still maintain its integrity work-
ing deeper and deeper.
The rating on these plugs is
based on the use of monofilament.
With the use of the micro fiber
lines, you can achieve much
greater efficiency, which keeps
your entry point of the line much
closer to the transom. Having a
rig such as this out will still allow
you to work your normal spread
of lines above them on the sur-
face without creating a tangle. It
just gives you the addition of
another line working an area of
the water column that you hadn't
been.
Oceanside with the correct
winds, sails have been striking
well in water from 65 to 240 feet
on the edge of the reef. Kings are
still extremely plentiful in these


. . ' same areas.
b Most have
been rather
small, yet
with the
-. use of the
a. diving
plugs or
:-l t larger live
baits,
S obtaining a
, nice smok-
ha-v ber king in
the 25-
Dave Navarro plus-pound
range has
not been unusual.
Along this area are dolphin,
wahoo and a good variety of
small tunas in the mix. Farther
out, numerous tunas and dolphin
have been increasing in frequen-
cy, along with the wahoo.
Save for Sunday, we've had
several days of rather calm seas
and we are on the'filling of the
moon now. This has offered most
any angler the opportunity to
work well offshore for a shot at
swordfish.
From reports I've received,
many have done well lately -
more than two dozen caught this
past week along. Most were
taken on live baits, mostly small
blue runners. Others used the
large long-line squid we have
available. Most were fishing
depths in excess of 1,500 feet on
the drift.
Some anglers who remained
out overnight to avoid running
over that nice big board that one


can never seem to find in the day-
time were rewarded with a beau-
tiful sunrise and a school of nice
dolphin that had made a nest
under their rudders.
What's happening offshore
now is the topic of this week's
free fishing seminar in our out-
door amphitheater at our Marine
Educational Center, mile marker
49 bayside. We'll talk about all of
the above-mentioned techniques
and tactics as well as cover the
use of rigged baits, live baits and
my favorite, Billy Baits. We'll
also show you how to work your
spread while trolling as well as
working deep around floating
debris for wahoo and larger fish.
The free seminar will begin at
6 p.m. Everyone is welcome to
attend.
Another fishery that has been
red hot has been the grouper. Both
deep dropping in 150 to 500 feet
of water and along the edge of the
reef have -been productive.
-Warsaw, snowy and blacks top the
list of big fish this week. The same
large long-line squid was the bait
of choice for most of the fish
caught in 100-plus-foot depths.
On another front, tarpon are
showing up more and more every
day in the usual haunts. And cobias
remain strong if you venture well
out, say, 15 or-more miles.
