WHAT A MESS: This 52,000-pound crane tipped Wednesday afternoon in Marathon as it
was trying to lift a derelict boat out of the water at the end of 15th Street bayside.
Apparently an old septic tank collapsed under the crane's weight. The crane, operated by
AC/DC Electric owner Jerry Doss, fell onto a 42-foot Hatteras owned by Andrew Schlieper;
the Hatteras then sank. Schlieper had just bought the boat and hadn't yet registered or
gotten insurance for the vessel.




Ward looking at



credit charges


State attorney
launches probe
into Acevedo
By DAVID BALL
dball @keysreporter.com


Monroe County State
Attorney Dennis Ward said his
office will look over records of
purchases -made on a School
District credit card by an official
who has since resigned.
On Friday, School Board


Chairman Andy Griffiths gave
the State Attorney's Office in Key
West records of credit card pur7
chases made by Monique
Acevedo, who was the district
adult education coordinator and
'is the wife of Superintendent
Randy Acevedo.
Monique Acevedo resigned on
.Tuesday after board members
learned of personal charges she
made on her district-issued credit
card. The charges included airline
tickets, sunglasses and other


items.
Acevedo was earning $65,573
this year - plus $18 an hour as
her department's office manager.
Last year, she earned a total of
$72,620 for those two jobs.
Ward, who won election in
November on a platform of pros-
ecuting public corruption, said
prosecutors would begin looking
them over on Tuesday.
"We'll look at it and see if
there's a crime that's been com-
mitted," Ward said. "I don't think

Long-lost brother
found after
'Keynoter' story
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

It took a tragedy to bring a
family together.
Michael Nesbit was in the
process of mourning his brother
James, better known as the Gold
Man at the nightly Mallory
Square Sunset Celebration.
James died last Sunday after his
kayak capsized in Key West
Harbor. His body was found
floating by a U.S. Navy security
patrol off the Outer Mole.
The Keynoter ran a story and
photo on Wednesday about
James Nesbit's death, quoting
Michael. Following the publica-
tion, Michael, who performs as
the. Copper Cowboy, was con-
tacted by none other than John
Nesbit - his long-lost brother
who also lives in Key West.
Despite both of them living
in Key West, John, 30, and
Michael, 36, had not seen each
other since John was 14 years
old and Michael was 20.
But the two were walking
arm in arm down Duval Street
Friday morning, catching up on
old memories.
"I lost one brother one day
and got a whole family the
next," Michael said, smiling at
his brother and his brother's
wife Ana.
The two have the same father
but different mothers; John has
lived in the Keys for 22 years
and Michael moved here from
North Carolina eight years ago.
"It's hard to believe," John
said about finding his brother
after thumbing through the

EPIRB could have


saved boaters


Missing players
didn't have
the equipment
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Florida Keys and South
Florida boaters can take precau-
tions to avoid the fate of three
men lost off Clearwater this
week, said a U.S. Coast Guard
spokesman.
"One word: EPIRB," said
Petty Officer Nick Ameen, an
information -officer at the Coast
Guard's 7th District headquar-
ters in Miami.
EPIRB is the common abbre-
viation for emergency position-
indicating radio beacon, a
marine device that sends a dis-
tress signal and location to res-
cuers.
"It's one of the greatest evo-
lutions ever in search and res-
cue," Ameen said. "An EPIRB
takes the search out of search
and rescue."
Commercial passenger boats
are required to carry an EPIRB;
recreational boats are not.
One might have saved the
lives of two NFL football play-
ers and a former college player
lost off Clearwater last weekend,
Ameen said.
"According to reports of the
incident, they might have been
in the water for eight hours
before they were even reported
missing," he said. "That's a long
time in the chilly weather we
had last weekend."
"If you have an EPIRB, it can
be activated manually or auto-
matically when it hits the water,"
Ameen said. "It brings rescuers
right to you. Is it worth spending
about $400 to $1,400?
Personally, I think so."
Some newer marine radios
also have emergency-location
features.
Marquis Cooper, 26, a line-
backer for the Oakland Raiders,
and Corey Smith, 29, a free-
agent defensive lineman former-
ly with the Detroit Lions, were
listed as lost at sea Tuesday. So
was a friend, William Bleakley,
25,-a former University of South
Florida player.


One man, Nick Schuyler, 24,
was found sitting atop the cap-
sized open fisherman boat in the
Gulf of Mexico on Monday. He
was suffering from hypothermia.
Their 21-foot boat departed
from Clearwater Pass at 6:30
a.m. Feb. 28. Weather was clear
and calm, but a strong cold front
swept the gulf later that day,
churning seas to more than 10
feet.
The Coast Guard halted the
search at nightfall Tuesday, say-
ing chances of the men surviving
four days of winter weather in
open water were virtually non-
existent.
The search covered more
than 24,000 square miles in the
gulf.


'It's one of
the greatest
evolutions
ever in search
and rescue.
An EPIRB takes
the search out
of search and
rescue.'
- Petty Officer Nick Ameen,
U.S. Coast Guard spokesman

Search-and-rescue operations
are launched frequently in the
Keys and Miami area because of
high boating traffic, Ameen said.
Two recent cases both
involved people who apparently
fell off separate cruise ships.
Neither was found.
Last month, a search was
launched for a sailboat that left
Key Largo for the Bahamas but
later was located, unharmed.
The boaters failed to alert family
of changes in their float plan.
How long the Coast Guard
searches for a person missing at
sea varies with each incident,
Ameen said.
"A lot of factors go into that
decision, particularly time and
weather," he said.

New fees for charter boats?


Some looking
to remove
tax exemption
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

State lawmakers trying to
make up for millions of dollars
in lost tax revenue from the
declining state economy are
looking to eliminate more than
200 sales tax exemptions -
including, one for charter boat
fishing.
According to a document
from the state House Finance
and Tax Council, reinstating
the 6-cent sales tax on charter
fishing could add more than
$71 million a year to state cof-
fers.
"It's a convenience item, not
a necessity. It's also a fairness
issue," said John Hall, execu-
tive director for the Florida
Center for Fiscal and
Economic Policy, a political
group that analyzes state eco-
nomic policy. "If I go on a
party boat, I have to pay sales
tax. If I charter a boat, I don't."


But the proposal is not sit-
ting well with Keys charter
captains, who have been partic-
ularly hard hit from the reces-
sion, with fewer people willing
or able to shell out several hun-
dred dollars for a day of fish-
ing.
"Now, in the middle of a
recession, you want to force
me to raise my rates with a new
tax?" asked Capt. Larry Wren,
owner of A Pirate's Choice
charter boat in Islamorada.
"The charter industry is off
around 40 to 60 percent, and
our customers can barely
afford the charter rates now,
and they have dropped in the
last year with fuel's decline,"
he said-
Rep. Ron -Saunders, who
represents the Keys in the state
Legislature, said he was instru-
mental in getting the tax
exemption for charter boats in
the 1980s and will fight to
maintain it.
"I'm opposed to removing
the exemption, and I will lead
the charge to keep it in place,"
Saunders said.


But Saunders said it's not
clear if the sales exemptions
will be taken up as one bill, or
individually.
"They may put the whole
list on one bill, and that would
make [the charter boat fishing
exemption] more difficult to
remove," Saunders said.
State lawmakers started
their 60-day legislative session
Tuesday. One of their main
challenges is finding ways to
make up for an immediate
$700 million budget shortfall,
and a deficit that could reach
more than $5 billion next fiscal
year.
But Wren said the state gov-
ernment got itself into this
financial jam by spending too
much and saving too little
when the economy flourished,
and raising taxes on an
already-embattled industry is
not a responsible solution.
"This will put a lot of oper-
ators out of business and right
into unemployment. It's the
government's fault - with the
endless spending of money it
doesn't have - that we are in
the mess we're in now," Wren
said.

Public demands overhaul

on credit card use

It's not akin to insurance giant AIG using its newfound pub-
lic bailout money to toss lavish parties for its clients, but it is
your money.
And the public should rightly demand to know just how
much Monique Acevedo - and every other Monroe County
School District employee who holds or held a district credit
card - spent in public money for personal use.
Acevedo, the wife of district Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, was caught this week when Finance Director
Kathy Reitzel discovered Monique Acevedo paid for airline
tickets, sunglasses and other personal items on her district
card. Reitzel refused to sign an audit certifying district
reports accurate.
Tuesday, Monique - who was the district's adult education
coordinator and earned a cool $72,620 last year - quit rather
that put up a fight, saying she's been wrongly accused. That
speaks volumes.
Her husband - who was her boss - says she bought the
airline tickets with the district card by mistake. What, she
took the wrong credit card out of her wallet? Yes, Randy says,
there was no malice aforethought. But what about the sun-
glasses and other goods?
When asked by The Reporter, Reitzel wouldn't make pub-
lic Monique's credit card records, instead punting to School
Board attorney Richard Collins, who didn't return calls on
Friday. So we have no idea, really, what exactly she bought
for her personal use and how much was spent.
That will be made clear, though, since State Attorney
Dennis Ward now has the records. When the county's top
prosecutor gets involved, you know it's to determine whether
the "mistake" was incidental or much more.
Randy Acevedo told The Reporter his wife "did nothing
wrong" and resigned "for the best interests of the district."
Well, not really. District policy clearly states that credit
cards "shall only be used in connection with board-approved
or school-related activities," and "under no circumstances
shall purchasing cards be used for personal purchase..."
We call on the School Board to demand a full audit of every
district credit card - and make all of the credit card records
public. If anyone else is found to have used district money for
personal use, they should go the way of Monique Acevedo
and no longer have a district job.
And, of course, the board needs to insist on tough controls
and verification over the use of public money, especially in
light of this latest disclosure.

All of the Keys comprise the Conch Republic


EDITOR:
In 1982, I was stopped at the federal govern-
ment roadblock in Florida City. I suffered the
indignation of having my car searched. The bor-
der of the Conch Republic and the United States
is at Florida City, not Key West. The interdiction
was at Florida City, not Key West.
My children were born and raised, and gradu-
ated Coral Shores High School, in the Conch
Republic. We are proud Conchs. I have flown the
flag, worn the T-shirts, adorned my car with
decals and license plates. I have celebrated the
Conch Republic at Upper Keys restaurants and
Conch Republic festivals.
We the residents of the Northernmost Territories
may not have the population of Key West and our
parties may not have been as frequent, big or as
grand; but we most certainly have a history of cel-
ebration, and will continue to celebrate.
If you were not living here in 1982, you are
only an honorary citizen and really have no right
to tell someone how to celebrate. Actually, in the
true spirit of the Conch Republic, no one has the
right to dictate what anyone else can do, period.
Each and every one of us has the right to cele-
brate and name our celebration as we see fit.
I would suggest anyone who has not read the


proclamation should. That goes for our county
commissioners, too. Heeding the objections of Sir
Peter Anderson (secretary general of the Conch
Republic and organizer of the Key West Conch
Republic Independence Celebration), the com-
mission voted against-Tourist Development
Council funding for a Northernmost Conch festi-
val. This was a dastardly blow reminiscent of the
acts of the federal bureaucrats in -1982, a very bad
precedent. It is also obvious the commission
voted along north-south lines.
For those who do not know, the crux of this
matter is simple. In these troubled times, a group
of prominent Conchs of the north talked to Sir
Peter to perhaps consult on a more organized and
publicized Keyswide celebration. Compensation
terms were not reached. Now, Sir Peter believes
that no one else can celebrate a Conch Republic
festival anywhere in the Keys.
The Conch Republic belongs to us all. It
would be absurd to think that no one else could
have a sunset celebration just because there is a
sunset celebration in Key West.
Let us all work, profit, expand and celebrate a
unified Conch Republic.

Don't forget your local Red Cross


EDITOR:
Across the United States, March is recognized
as American Red Cross Month. As one of the
nation's best-known humanitarian organizations,
the Red Cross has been at the forefront of helping
Americans prevent, prepare for and respond to
large and small disasters for 127 years.
Communities depend on the Red Cross in times of
need, and the Red Cross depends on the support
of the American people to achieve its mission.
This year, the Red Cross is taking time in
March to focus on the volunteers and employees
who demonstrate such compassion and generosi-
ty by supporting the Red Cross in Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties and around the country. As

Freedom relies on
Second Amendment
EDITOR:
On Feb. 25, a Keynoter editorial ended in stat-
ing, "There is little evidence that owning more
guns reduces property crimes. But having more
concealed weapons on the street - now that's
downright scary."
What I find scary indeed is the press, which is
the only business in the U.S. with a constitution-
al right to exist, based on the First Amendment,
can be so cavalier in dismissing the rights guar-
anteed by the Second Amendment.
Whether the gun lobby agrees with the Fourth
Estate or not, it supports its right to exist without
governmental interference. The press would do
well to return the favor, as it is the Second
Amendment that guarantees the First.

Kids better prepared for SAT


EDITOR:
A huge thank you goes out once
again to the Upper Keys Rotary for
hosting an SAT prep class for 78
Coral Shores High School students.
Steve Dulan was brought down
from Michigan to teach SAT test-
taking skills and strategies to help
students get a better score and
reduce test anxieties.
The six-hour class proved to be
extremely beneficial, according to
the evaluation given to students
after the course. One hundred per-
cent of the students said the
course would improve their
scores, while 99 percent said they
would recommend the course to


their friends. Some of the com-
ments included, "This course
should be mandatory for all stu-
dents," and "Now I won't be as
nervous to take an SAT."
Thank you to the Key Largo
Rotary, which provided lunch and
snacks for all the students. Our
community is very generous to our
students, and for that we are very
thankful. For other resources on
SAT prep, please go to www

EDITOR:
Has anyone else noticed some-
thing is really starting to stink in
the ongoing S.O.S. (ship our
sewage) debate between Key Largo
and Islamorada, and it isn't the
sewage?
Nope, what's really starting to
smell fishy is why some people in
Key Largo so desperately want our
poop. If they want it so bad, maybe
they ought to consider buying it
instead of us paying them to take it
and providing free delivery with
every pull of a silver handle. -
This issue has been hashed out,
kicked around, consultant studied
and wasted more taxpayer time
than the Marlins' stadium. Yet
another Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District board member
brings it up for another round,
insulting anyone and everyone that
steps between him and our sewage.
And even though some individu-
als keep rattling the saber about
taxpayer savings, as Islamorada
Village Manager Ken Fields so
aptly points out, not one of them
has ever placed a written proposal
on his or any other village official's
desk detailing a viable program and
the savings it would bring to tax-
payers.
Now ask yourself, why should-
Islamorada continue to drag its feet
on this issue? Instead, we need to
look west to Marathon with an
award-winning system, ahead of
schedule and under budget. Key
Largo has pressed forward with its
own system and Monroe County
has rapidly moved forward to reach
compliance.
Only in the past year, under the
present Village Council and the
leadership of Mayor Cathi Hill, has
the village come to terms with this


state-mandated requirement and
made real progress toward imple-
mentation of a central sewage sys-
tem and put us in a viable position
to receive federal and state funding.
Let's not forget potential envi-
ronmental issues and especially the
vulnerability of pipelines from
island to island. Just imagine the
nightmare if one of those pipes rup-
tured due to a hurricane or serious
accident on Overseas Highway. The
pollution factor alone is horrendous
to even think about, and what-is
even worse is the possibility of
7,500 village residents perched on
five-gallon buckets for an indeter-
minable amount of down time.
Scary thought, isn't it?
What qualifies me to be so criti-
cal? Well, I can smell, and I smell
something stinky in the deal to ship
our sewage. I've got a hunch it's all
about numbers, and Nos. 1 and 2
must add up to a lot more than 3
the way some folks are fighting for
our sewage.

Slow the spending
EDITOR:
The Islamorada Village Council
is out of control in terms of spend-
ing. They seem to ignore that we
are in a recession and financial
market decline by approving
increases in employment and
salary increases. The council con-
tinues to spend like drunken
sailors. It may be time for us as
voters to eject them from office
and place people at the head of-the
village that govern in line with
economic realities.

The Rotary nautical market has grown from modest roots to become the largest
annual event in the Upper Keys. It's surpassed $1 million in money raised for local
scholarships and other causes in the 14 years it's been held.

Rotary market tops $150,000


EDITOR:
The Rotary Club of the Upper Keys
thanks the entire community for making the
14th annual Gigantic Nautical Flea Market
the largest event and the biggest fundraiser
in the Upper Keys.
Two hundred vendors and 20 non-for-
profit organizations staffed more than 300
booths the weekend of Feb. 21 and 22 at
Founders Park in Islamorada to offer their
merchandise and services. About 25,000
visitors welcomed the opportunity to pibk
from an extensive array of nautical-themed
products.
Thanks to all the support the Upper Keys
Rotary Club received from sponsors and
vendors. We also thank all the helping hands
who prepared the food, sold beverages,
hauled trash, organized the set-up and take-
down, and facilitated parking and traffic.
The event grossed more than $150,000
this year and topped last year's record by
more than 10 percent. Over the course of
the 14 years, the event has grossed more
than $1 million.
All help and work is supplied by volun-

EDITOR:
On behalf of the board of directors and
staff of the Monroe County Domestic
Abuse Shelter, I would like to thank the 200

sors, and the volunteers who participated in
the eighth annual No Name Race 5K
run/walk to benefit the shelter, Monroe
County's only certified crisis center serving
victims of domestic violence and sexual
assault.
Due to everyone's support for the Feb.
28 race, DAS realized a net profit of more
than $10,000,.which will help support pro-
gram operations related to food, utilities,
transportation, individual and group sup-
port, operation of the 24-hour hotline and a
host of other basics that DAS provides to


100 percent of the proceeds back to the
community in the form of scholarships for
our local high school graduates and other
causes that need Rotary's helping hand.
Some statistics of our efforts: 38 kegs

cases (5,760 bottles) of water; 40 gallons of
conch fritter mix; 90 pounds' of barbecue
pork; 2,100 hot dogs; 1,100 burgers; and
600 chicken and fish tenders. Our weekend
breakfast supply of 14 boxes of sausages
sold out early Saturday. The additional sup-

KCB goes to polls Tuesday


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccatthye@keynoter.com


Four candidates vie for three
open seats on the Key Colony
Beach City Commission when
the polls open Tuesday.
Incumbents Mayor Ron
Sutton, Vice Mayor Rusty
Stevens -and Commissioner'
Jeffrey Vorick, and political new-
comer Mary Schmidt, look to be
elected. The incumbents' three
seats are up, and the top three
voter-getters among the four are
elected to the five-member com-
mission. Terms are for two years.
Voting takes place at Key
Colony Beach City Hall between
7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Eight hundred
residents signed up when voter
registration closed Feb. 9.
Vorick is closing out his fourth
term, Sutton his second and
Stevens his first.
Key Colony is the second
smallest city in the Keys. There
are'fewer than 900 full-time resi-
dents and in the wintertime, resi-
dency peaks at around 3,800.
So voters haven't seen any
smear tactics going on in Key
Colony; most of the candidates
are friendly with and complement


one another's effort. With the city
mostly built out and a sewer sys-
tem already in place, few contro-
versial issues arise like in the rest
of the county.
The largest project Key
Colony faces in the near future is
another phase of stormwater con-
struction. The first round finished
last year.
Sutton said that project and the
city's budget are his most impor-
tant issues in the coming year.
"The budget is going to be big
this year with bad economic
times and property values lower-
ing. I want to not raise taxes if at
all possible, and that's going to
take a lot of hard work," he said.
Vorick says he considers him-
self a voice of common sense and
reason on the commission.
"The main thing is I try to
keep , the commission on a
focused trip through our budget,"
he said. "We really don't have
much in the future except for our
stormwater plan, so we're basi-


Red snapped
aPP


cally on a maintenance plan with
our budget."
' Stevens agrees.
"With the economic times, it's
going to be challenging. We just
need to stay ahead of the curve."
He added, "Key Colony is
considered by many to be a
model for the Keys. I just feel we
need to stay ahead of the curve on
our wastewater, stormwater." .
As for Schmidt, whose cam-
paign has been based on her
being a citizen watchdog, she
says everyone should realize
every vote counts. I
Just look to the countywide
November judicial race between
Tegan Slaton and Mary Vanden
Brook, which is still being fought
in the courts because the two -
Slaton won - were separated by
just four votes. And State
Attorney Dennis Ward beat Mark
Kohl, also in the fall, by only
three percentage points.
"I am going to urge everyone
to vote because every Vote
counts," Schmidt said.

A Thursday debate over an
emergency closure of red snapper
fishing sounded like a rerun of
last year's controversy over
grouper, said Marathon fisher-
man Tony larocci.
"It was deja vu, all the same
arguments with the scientists on
oje side and the fishermen on the
other," said larocci, a member of
the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council.
larocci voted against the clo-
sure at the council's Thursday
meeting at Jekyll Island, Gs., but
it passed on a 7-6 vote.
That means all fishing for red
snapper in South Atlantic waters
could halt this summer. The clo-
sure would last at least six
months, and could be extended.
.The council will take final
action on the closure at its June
meeting.
Some Keys fishermen seek
red snapper, larocci said, "but it's
a lot more important to the people
in North Florida and Georgia.


Some of those head boats will be
out of business."
"People were talking about
losing their homes," he said.
"One woman was crying."
The decision was difficult for
most of the council, he said.
"The federal law mandates
that we take action when a
species is declared to be over-
fished, but I think you have to
balance that with the socio-eco-
nomic impacts."
Said larocci, "I'm a guy on the
water, so I have to go with what
the fishermen are saying, and
some of them are saying it's the
best red snapper fishing in years."
Scientists contend the red
snapper population is a fraction
of what it needs to be, particular-
ly among large breeding fish, in
order to remain sustainable.
Last year federal regulators
voted to. halt fishing on most
types of shallow-water grouper as
an emergency rule. The closure
didn't occur because of procedur-
al delays. But a new grouper clo-'
sure is being considered.

Lobster Betsey


will re-emerge


Massive statue
been out of
sight since '06
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Big Betsey could soon
migrate back into public view.
Betsey, better known simply
as The Giant Lobster, has been
absent for months from her
longtime post outside the for-
mer Treasure Village on
Plantation Key.
"We're working on it," Mia
Berry said of plans for the re-
emergence of the family-owned
fiberglass sculpture. "There
could be something announced
very soon."
It appears likely the giant
lobster, described by tourism
officials as an Islamorada icon,
will remain in the Upper Keys,
she hinted.
"We still have to get details
finalized but there is a general
agreement," Berry said. "We
know she's been missed."
The statue, 40 feet long and
30 feet high, is a detailed, bio-
logically accurate depiction of a
female spiny lobster.


Betsey has appeared on tele-
vision shows and in the Sports
Illustrated swimsuit issue. A
Web site on roadside attractions
declares it the largest non-
inflatable crustacean statue in
America.
In the 1980s, sculptor
Richard Blaze spent five years
assembling and painting the
giant lobster at his workspace
on Coco Plum in Marathon.
By the time he finished, the
business that had commissioned
the lobster was out of business.
The lobster then was
acquired by Treasure Village
owner Tom Vellanti and his
family to be used as a landmark"
for the shopping plaza near mile
marker 87.
When Treasure Village
became a charter school in
2006, Betsey needed a new
home. The lobster was disas-,
sembled and removed from
public view for refurbishment
and possible sale.
Plans to move it to an Upper
Matecumbe Key business
stalled. Betsey even showed up
on the eBay auction site last
year. No suitable bids were
received; the lobster once had a
list price of $400,000.

Kolhage bowing out of city politics


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


District III Key West City
Commissioner Dan Kolhag.e said
Tuesday night that he won't seek
re-election in October, telling the
Keynoter: "I've got to do more
working' and less governing."
Kolhage, a Republican, is near-
ing the end of his first four-year
term on the commission, having
been elected in October 2005, just
days before Hurricane Wilma hit
Key West. His district includes the


Key West airport, part of New
Town and the College Road side
of Stock Island.
In a phone interview with the
Keynoter Friday, Kolhage cited
"all things associated with the
recovery from. Wilma" as an
accomplishment in office, along
with helping increase the city's
capital budget.
"The time you have to dedi-
cate to it is significant," Kolhage
said, referring to being a city


He said he
-K ' has a son in
college and a
daughter a few
. years away,
and .may be
,'. leaving town
before long.
KOH So who
might take his
place?
Billy Wardlow, a Republican
who served 30 years with the Key
West Fire Department and retired
as fire chief almost three years
ago, confirmed that he's running
for the District IHl seat.
"It's something that I've want-
ed to do," the lifelong Key West
resident said. "I think I could go in
there and get things taken care of."
Billy . Wardlow's brother
Dennis was the mayor of Key
West in the early 1980s, when
Key West "seceded" from the
United States and adopted the
name Conch Republic.
"My main focus is to try to
keep people employed with the


city," Wardlow said. In the past
year, more than 30 positions were
eliminated from a variety of city
departments.
Wardlow also weighed in on
the ongoing debate about a new
city hall.
"I'm leaning toward renovat-
ing the current building," he said.
The price tag on the new build-.
ing, estimated around $23 mil-
lion, is too much, he told the
Keynoter: "I think we need to put
reigns on our spending."
John Davidson has also
expressed interest in running for
the District III seat, although he
has not submitted paperwork.
In District I, Commissioner Bill
Verge, a Democrat, is running
again. Also declared is retired court
clerk and member of Last Stand
Tom Milone, also a Democrat.
Speaking of District I, former
Key West mayor and owner of
Fausto's, Jimmy Weekley, a
Democrat, has picked up an appli-
cation to run for office, but didn't
make it clear if he intends to run
for the District I seat or for mayor.
"Yes, I did pick up a packet to
run for something," Weekley
said, laughing. "I've been talking
to a lot of people and there's a lot
of dissatisfaction with [Mayor
Morgan McPherson]. He hasn't
accomplished anything in four
years. He's got an agenda that


Boat ramps


doesn't really flow with what
people want to see in the city."
McPherson defeated Weekley
in the past two mayoral elections.
As for District I, where
Weekley lives, he says he's hear-
ing from residents that they don't
feel Verge is "really representing.
the district." Weekley also said he
has heard from district residents
that Verge is spending "too much
time worrying about the
Vandenberg," a decommissioned
ship that will be scuttled as an
artificial reef,' instead of things
like noise control and parking.
Also on the ballot in the
October election will be the
District VI City Commissi6n seat
held by Clayton - Lopez, a
Democrat. Challenging him is
Bahama Conch Community Land
Trust President James Marquardt,
also a Democrat.
In the running for mayor so far
are McPherson and Craig Cates,
owner of the Napa Auto Parts
store on North Roosevelt
Boulevard. Both. are registered
Republicans. Jimmy Mira, a
Democrat, has picked up an
application to run but, like
McPherson, has not yet submitted
completed forms to the city clerk.
The candidate qualifying peri-

Century 21

records seized


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.comrn


Law officers seized records
Friday from two branches of a
large Florida Keys realty firm
that filed for bankruptcy Monday.
Search warrants obtained by
the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office were served on
the Big Pine Key and Key Largo
offices of Prestige Realty, also
known as Century 21 Prestige
Realty.
"We're looking at the vacation
rentals" handled by the firm,
State Attorney Dennis Ward said.
Investigators will check sales-
tax payments and other account-
ing, Ward said.
Subpoenas also have been
issued for the firm's records of
Prestige Realty's bank accounts,
Ward said. He declined to discuss
additional details of the case, cit-
ing the open investigation.


Vacation rentals are rentals of
homes or condominiums for peri-
ods of less than 30 days. Vacation
rentals must pay the same state
sales and tourism taxes as motels.
Prestige, the second largest real
estate company in the Keys by
volume last year with $123. mil-
lion in sales, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection in Miami.
According to numbers compiled
by Coldwell-Banker Schmitt Real
Estate Co., Century 21 had a 9.1
percent market share last year.
Prestige had nine offices when
those figures were gathered.
Three offices subsequently were
returned to the former owner.
The company now operates
six offices in the Keys, as well as
others in Fort Myers and Ohio.
Prestige's Keys General Manager
Dave Lunsford said the bankrupt-
cy filing is a reorganization of
debt.

Old Town beat out New Town
as the location of a new city hall
in a 5-2 vote by the Key West
City Commission on Tuesday.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
and Commissioner Mark Rossi
were the only two to vote in
favor of building a new city hall
at Wickers Field on Kennedy
Drive.
"New Town will become the
next Old Town," McPherson
said just before the vote, adding


that with more residents living in
New Town, it would be conven-
ient for more residents to walk
and bike to a city hall in New
Town.
Rossi represents District II, in
New Town, but owns several
Old Town businesses, including
Rick's, Durty Harry's and the
Red Garter Saloon, a strip club.
He favors replacing the cur-
rent city hall at 525 Angela St.
with a parking garage. "We
could receive a tremendous


amount of revenue out of that
site," he said at the meeting.
District I Commissioner Bill
Verge ultimately cast a vote for
redeveloping the Angela Street
location, but made a number of
arguments for not immediately
proceeding with the project.
"There's another option to
consider as well and that's the
Jefferson Browne Courthouse
building which I think the coun-
ty probably wants to tear down,"
Verge said.
The county moved the major-
ity of its operations out of the


Fugate to Keys: Stay storm ready


FEMA nominee
is no stranger
to Florida Keys
Keynoter Staff

The next director of the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency told the Keynoter on
Wednesday to continue carrying
his message of hurricane aware-
ness to Keys residents.
"Just keep doing what you
have been doing to get the word
out on hurricane preparedness -
the Keys need your voice," Craig
Fugate told the newspaper in an
e-mail Wednesday afternoon.
Fugate was responding to the
question, "Anything special you
want to tell us in the Keys for the
coming [hurricane] season, con-
sidering we haven't been hit in
three years?," hours after
President Obama nominated the
Florida Division of Emergency
Management director to the
nation's top emergency post.
Fugate is no stranger to the
Keys.
,Last May and in May 2006, he
came to Marathon to participate
in televised hurricane awareness
programs hosted by the Keynoter
and produced by the newspaper,
the National Weather Service in
Key West and Monroe County's
Channel 76.
Each time, his message was
the same: When a hurricane
approaches, evacuate. He says
one of his biggest frustrations in
his current job is not getting Keys
residents to take that message -
always delivered forcefully - as
seriously as they should.
If confirmed by the Senate as

expected, Fugate would succeed
David Paulison - a former
Miami-Dade fire chief - as head
of FEMA.

Florida was hit by eight major
storms.


courthouse late last year and into
the newly completed Freeman
Justice Center. Verge suggested a
joint venture with the county on
redeveloping that site, saving
some money in the processing.
The city has $13 million in
the bank for a new city hall, but
the redevelopment at Angela
Street is expected to cost around
$23 million.
"That money sitting in the
bank is bringing us in right now
$260,000 in interest," Verge
said. "It's a time for us to really
watch our dollars."
But, just because he voted for
it, Verge doesn't like the Angela
Street site either.
"If we have to go approve a
site, I probably have to go, reluc-
tantly, with the Angela Street


site," he said. But, "I really don't
favor Angela Street as a site. I'd
much rather see a parking garage
there."
Commissioners Verge, Barry
Gibson, Dan Kolhage, Teri
Johnston and Clayton Lopez all
voted for Angela Street.
The vote, however, was a
non-binding resolution that
merely identified a preferred
site. No direction was given to
city staff to pay architecture firm
mbi/k2m to proceed with a
detailed site survey and analysis.
The city has plans to discuss
financing options for a new city
hall at a workshop, open to the
public, to be held at 6 p.m. on
March 10, at the Old City Hall
on Greene Street, in the veritable
heart of Old Town.

Inconsistencies


in murder case


Deputies did
indeed check
Gardner's boat
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Jonathon Leo LeBaron,
charged with beating Richard
Gardner to death . aboard
Gardner's boat on Stock Island
on Feb. 10, is awaiting extradi-
tion to Monroe County to be tied
for first-degree murder.
While authorities believe
LeBaron, 32, killed Gardner -
and LeBaron's girlfriend,
Kristena Whitmore, 40, was there
when it happened - inconsisten-
cies remain in what exactly hap-
pened prior to the duo's escape
-from the Keys.
- The pair were found in a Salt
Lake City area Motel 6 on Feb.
21, and have been sitting in jail
there ever since. Whitmore is
being held on probation viola-
tions, while LeBaron is charged
with the murder and stealing
Gardner's car.
An FBI agent found Gardner's
body on Feb. 13 just after 10 a.m.
The agent conducted the welfare
check after getting a call from a
friend with the Cape Coral Police
Department, a Monroe County
Sheriff's Office report says.
At the time of the discovery,
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin told the Keynoter
her office didn't conduct the wel-
fare check, the FBI did.
But now it turns out the
Sheriff's Office did indeed con-
duct a welfare check at Gardner's
boat -- about 10 hours before the
FBI agent discovered Gardner's
body, according to reports.
Herrin told the Keynoter on
Friday that a call came in from
Cape Coral police on Feb. 12'
asking Keys deputies to go look
for Gardner at his boat.
Cape Coral police asked for
the check because Jennie
Gardner, Richard's wife, had
called them saying she was con-
cemed about her husband's safe-
ty because a Tennessee law
enforcement agency had stopped
her husband's 1999 Mercury
Marquis, with LeBaron and
Whitmore in the car.
"All we can do is go and


knock on the door," Herrin said.
"If we don't get an answer, we
can't go into a house or a boat."
Call records from the Sheriff's
Office from Feb. 12 read: "Does
not appear to be anyone onboard.
The cabin is locked from the out-
side. Nothing appears out of the
ordinary. Someone that lives on
the same pier said they haven't
seen anyone around."
Just 10 hours later, the FBI
agent apparently found .some-
thing out of the ordinary, so much
so that he contacted the Sheriff's
Office and requested a homicide
unit be sent to Gardner's boat,


The pair were
found in a
Salt Lake City
area Motel 6
on Feb. 21,
and have been
sitting in jail
there ever since.


according to reports.
As for the car being stopped in
Memphis? The Keynoter request-
ed copies of all communications
between the Sheriff's Office and
the Memphis Police Department
or Shelby County Sheriff's Office.
But Herrin says "any docu-
mentation between our agency
and Memphis authorities is con-
sidered to be part of the ongoing
criminal investigation of this case
and is exempt from disclosure at
this time."
Numerous Keynoter phone
calls about the traffic stop to a
variety of Memphis Police
Department offices have gone
unanswered and unreturned.
An arrest warrant for LeBaron
prepared by the Monroe County
State Attorney's Office says that
when Memphis authorities
stopped Gardner's car, LeBaron
claimed to be Gardner's nephew.
He and Whitmore were unable to
provide identification because
they said they had been robbed in
Ocala, the warrant says.
The two were eventually
arrested in the Utah Motel 6 after
police received an anonymous tip.

Beware bogus claims offering benefits help


No charge for
unemployment
claims filing

Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum and Agency for
Workforce Innovation Interim
Director Cynthia Lorenzo on
Thursday issued a consumer
advisory warning Floridians to be
wary of companies offering to
file unemployment compensation
claims for a fee.
Recent reports from other
states indicate consumers have
signed up for such services -
only to later discover unemploy-
ment claims were never filed on
their behalf. Of equal concern is
that consumers have also provid-
ed their Social Security numbers,
thinking they were dealing with
state agencies, authorities says.
"It really is unthinkable that a
con artist would try to victimize
someone trying to receive assis-
tance in a time of need," Attorney
General Bill McCollum says. "I
encourage Floridians to remain
vigilant to prevent falling for this
scam."
Some states have reported
complaints from consumers who
have conducted Internet searches
for "unemployment claims" or
similar terms that provided
results including private compa-
nies. Consumers are then directed

Village looks at standards


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

In the first community work-
shop on proposed commercial
design standards, Islamorada
officials heard one strong mes-
sage: Let existing businesses
keep what they have.
A group of about 25 residents
gathered at the Founders Park
Community Center on Monday
gave that message to council
members, Village Manager Ken
Fields and village planning staff.
It was the first of several meet-
ings called by the council for
community input on design stan-
dards. The standards for commer-
cial buildings are being devel-
oped since a federal judge threw
out an ordinance banning chain
stores in Islamorada; the -village
had rejected Walgreens from
going where the Island -Spice
store now is.
Businesses like Publix are
reportedly eyeing Islamorada
properties. Village officials hope
to avoid typical chain-store struc-
tures by adopting architectural
standards that preserve
Islamorada's "community' char-
acter."

At issue on Monday was
whether new design standards or
existing codes would apply if
owners tear down and rebuild
businesses by choice or because
of a natural disaster.
Village staff had originally
proposed that owners who rede-
velop more than 50 percent of a
building would have to comply
with new standards, with the pos-
sible exception of rebuilding due
to a natural disaster such as a hur-
ricane.
"The big goal is to keep what'
we have," Planning Director Ed
Koconis said. "But if somebody's
going to build brand new, we
don't want a 50-foot brick wall
on U.S. 1."
But several people, including
members of a "community char-
acter" citizens group, said the vil-


lage should allow any existing
business to redevelop if it is
rebuilt exactly as it exists today.
Mayor Cathi Hill told The
Reporter she agrees with that pol-
icy, which might also help
encourage businesses that have
closed to tear down without the
fear of losing the .ability to
rebuild as they existed.
"You've got places like Coral
Grill, Townsite and Papa Joe's,
and we've been looking at that
garbage for the last five, years
now," Hill said. "If they take it
down, they cannot rebuild it, so
they found a loophole and have
kept it up."
She said many of the noncon-
forming buildings and structures,
such as the old Papa Joe's sign,
which now is too big according to
current codes, are part of
Islamorada's community charac-
ter and should be preserved.

Hotel to close
soon for
redevelopment
Keynoter Staff

Surprise! The Holiday Inn in
Marathon, the only chain hotel
in the Middle Keys, is no longer
a Holiday Inn.
This week, the sign was cov-
ered up, announcing that the
hotel is now called the Marathon
Inn. But it's just a temporary
name change.
The hotel, owned by
Spottswood Companies Inc., is
getting ready to close so that it
can be demolished and a
Holiday Inn Express built in its
place. The tiki bar and restaurant
closed on Sunday in advance of
the closure of the hotel. This
necessitated the temporary
change of name, as hotels that
are regular Holiday Inns must
have a restaurant.
"It's a new property and
rather than continue on while
we're in this mode, it's more
efficient to de-flag the property
as if we're starting from
scratch," Robert Spottswood,
president of Spottswood
Companies Inc. told the
Keynoter this week.
Spottswood says he hasn't
yet set a date to demolish the
hotel and start construction of

Home-buying
seminar for locals
is this month
Keynoter Staff

Falling home prices aren't
bad for everyone. For the first
time in years, a lot of locals who
earn moderate incomes can
afford to buy a home in the
Keys. And you don't have to
have perfect credit.
"People with credit scores as


low as 600 can still get a loan,"
says Steve Frahlich, who works
out of the Century 21 office in
Marathon, getting people
approved for mortgages through
Freddie Mac.
Frahlich is teaching a seminar
at Century 21 on March 18 and
21, called a "Why Rent?" event,
and is inviting all those interest-
ed to attend. Frahlich says if you
have an income, in the high
$30,000s or above, there are
homes you can afford to buy in


and around Marathon - not just
mobile homes,,but nicer homes
as well.
The March 18 seminar starts
at 6 p.m. at the Century 21 office
in Marathon. Those in atten-
dance will meet around a board-
room table and get information
about how they might be able to
qualify to buy. Frahlich is offer-

the new Holiday Inn Express. So
for now, the property will oper-
ate as the Marathon Inn.
City Planning Director
George Garrett said Spottswood
has yet.to pull any permits for
the project. He said he plans to
meet with Spottswood represen-
tatives next week about the proj-
ect.
The Holiday Iifn was the first
hotel to take advantage of the
Marathon City Council's deci-
sion last year to ease affordable
housing requirements for rede-
veloping smaller and mid-size
hotels.
A rule requiring a 20 percent
affordable housing contribution
was pricing many hoteliers out
of redeveloping older properties.
The law passed by the council
eliminates the affordable hous-
ing component, provided the
hotel is rebuilt no larger than its
current footprint.
What is now the Marathon
Inn has 134 transient units avail-


able, but General Manager
Dennis Wardlow said only 72
are online.
Wardlow admits the transi-
tion and uncertain status of the
project is hard on the hotel's
employees, but that it's the best
thing for the company and the
city.
"It's tough on everyone
because you're dealing with
people's lives, but it has to hap-
pen because Marathon deserves
it and it's going to attract people
and there will be a lot more jobs
when we get the 134 units run-
ning," he said.
Meanwhile, another large
Spottswood project in Marathon,
the Faro Blanco Marine Resort,
may finally see some action.
After a lengthy wait,
Spottswood secured permits
from both the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers and the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion to install roughly 200 boat
slips.
Spottswood Companies Inc.
has been working on redevelop-
ing the resort since 1999.

REEF founder kicks of 'Fish and Friends' series Tuesday
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


An ocean awareness group
known throughout the world
reaches out to its Florida Keys
neighbors with a series of
monthly programs beginning
Tuesday.
"It's a small gift to the com-
munity that's housed and sup-
ported us for 16 years now," said
Lisa Mitchell, executive director
of the Reef Environmental
Education Foundation, known to
divers and' snorkelers simply as
REEF.
"We're the locally home-
grown environmental nonprofit
that's recognized international-
ly," Mitchell said from REEF's
Key Largo headquarters.
Paul Humann, a diving author
and underwater photographer
who co-founded REEF, launches
the monthly "Fish and Friends"
series in Key Largo with a look
at the organization's history,
mission and accomplishments.
Tuesday's event at the James
E. Lockwood REEF
Headquarters, in the median at
mile marker 98.3, opens with a 5
p.m. meet-and-greet period. The
one-hour presentation begins at
5:30 p.m.
"Paul truly is an icon in the
diving world," Mitchell said.
"With Ned DeLoach, he devel-
oped the fish ID book series that
has become one of the most
important pieces of equipment a
diver or snorkeler can own. It
changed the way we look at fish
in the ocean."
The fish identification books,
including a popular edition on
reef fish of Florida and the
Caribbean, are available in
waterproof editions that can be
consulted on the sea-sprayed
deck of a boat, or even in mid-
dive.
".The fish ID books were the
first time species were grouped
not by scientific classification
but divided up based on what
fish you're likely to see-in a spe-
cific area," Mitchell said. "It's a
concept that made it easy for
people who love the underwater-

Humann and DeLoach part-

REEF's underwater-survey
efforts, where recreational divers
log fish species and quantities at
a site.
"It gives divers a purpose,
helps the environment and pro-


motes diving," Mitchell said.
"Now people can know and
appreciate what they're seeing,
rather saying they saw a bunch of
fish."
REEF's 38,000 members
(joining is free) have completed
more than 125,000 fish surveys,
which have formed the basis of
at least 55 scientific research
papers, Mitchell said.

ple a chance to see the century-

offices. One of the oldest build-
ings in Key Largo, the house is
believed to have been built in
1908 at its present site:
Future programs will include
looks at critical ocean issues like
the lionfish invasion (a REEF
member spotted the first lionfish
found in Keys waters) or local
professional divers sharing their
expertise.
"We'll also have short ver-
sions of REEF's fish identifica-
tion seminars, and hope to plan
group trips for local surveys,"
Mitchell said. "We want to keep
it light and fun."
Mitchell, a veteran dive cap-
tain in the Upper Keys and
Caribbean, was named REEF
executive director last summer.
She was among REEF's earliest
members and advocates.
"I feel like I've trained my
whole life for this job," she
smiled: "Everything I know
about running boats, educating
divers and operating a business
comes into play."

Marathon


Seafood Festival


Feast to be served
by local fishermen
and their families
By KAREN QUIST
'kquist@keynoter.com

Marathon's fishing heritage
takes center stage March 14 and
15 with the 33rd Original
Marathon Seafood Festival at
Marathon Community Park. "
Put on by the local chapter of
the Organized Fishermen of
Florida and the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce, the two-
day festival is a celebration of
local seafood and the families
that catch it.
The festivities run 10 a.m. to 9
p.m. Saturday, March 14, and 11
a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 15.


Tickets $15 at Door; cash or check
TIB Bank of the Keys Amphitheater .
,... Islamorada Founders Park, MM 87 Bayslde ,'.'
For more information, call 305/395-6344


In a nod to today's economic
challenges, organizers have cut
the gate fee from $8 to $5. That's
the same price charged in the fes-
tival's inaugural year when it was
held on the field where the
Publix now stands.
While a lot has changed since
then, one festival constant has
been the seafood, including fresh
and local lobster, stone crab and
fish, served up by many of the
same families who catch it. No
questions here about where the
food is coming from or where the.
money's going.
Festival-goers have a plethora
of seafood options to choose
from, including the ubiquitous
conch chowder, conch salad and
conch fritters (no, the conch's not
from the Keys), the leggy golden
crab or some Panhandle oysters.

form of scholarships and other
community-boosting activities.
In addition to the mouth-
watering draw of local seafood
cooked by local fishermen and
their families, both days of this
year's festival are packed with
activities for festival-goers of all
ages.
Daniel Samess, executive
director of the Greater Marathon
Area Chamber of Commerce, is
particularly enthusiastic.about
one of this year's additions -
Sunday's tribute to the U.S. mili-
tary.
"It's going to be pretty excit-
ing," Samess said of the 1 p.m.
tribute, which will include a fly-
over by the Navy. "It's a first for
the seafood festival," Samess
said. "We're extremely hon-
ored."
Throughout both days, there
will be plenty of activities to
entertain kids.
"We make sure it's a real
family event," Samess said.
Adventurous kids will be all
over the climbing wall and
bungee ride, both of which the
chamber's Charlotte Quinn says
are bigger and better than last
year.
Proceeds from time in the
bounce house will benefit Stand
Up for Animals.
Young fishermen can test
their casting ability at the
Forgotten Soldiers' booth, com-
peting for prizes and raising
money for the group, which
sends care packages to U.S.
service personnel overseas.
.This is the third year the fes-
tival has been held at the
Marathon Community Park, after
years at the airport.
"We love having it there,"
said Samess, who's in his second
year at the chamber's helm. "It's
probably not quite as big as the
airport, but it's made for events
like these."
Parking will be available at
Stanley Switlik Elementary (bay-
side) and the Guidance Clinic on
41st Street (oceanside). Pigeon
Key is providing its van as a
parking shuttle, and there will
also be some golf carts to ferry
people up or across the street.

and more about the 33rd
Original Marathon Seafood
Festival.

Sean Penn, winner of the Academny Award for Best Actor for
'MILK,' complained in January that Benicio Del Toro had not
even been nominated for his role in 'Che,' saying it was
maybe because the film was mostly in Spanish, with English
subtitles, or maybe because of its politics.

Still misty eyed

'Che: Part I'
debuts at the
Tropic Cinema
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
If I were Cuban in the
1950s, I would have found it
impossible not to love the
revolution. I probably would
have gone up into the Sierra
Maestra to fight with Che,


and would have stood on the
side of the mountain with
'him and told him: Look,
when the clouds clear, you
can see Las Villas there - Las
Villas, the place that must be
crossed, and conquered, for
us to win!
But fifty years have gone
by, and unless you are very
young, or very foolish, you
cannot watch the two-part
feature film "Che" and love
the Cuban Revolution or the
revolutionaries. And you
can't love Che Guevara, who
jailed homosexuals, executed
free thinkers, and hated the
United States for no other
reason than that it was what
Marxists did.
But OK, let's just watch,
and pretend this is a work of
fiction, a dream.
Benicio Del Toro stars as
Ernesto Che Guevara in this
two-part film based on Che's
memoir, "Memories of the
Cuban Revolutionary War."

ience of huge truths, and the
annoying intrusion of the
breathy voice of an American
woman interviewer ("How
does it feel to be a symbol?"
she purrs) - it is a beautiful
film.
In Part I, we see Che with
Raul and Fidel Castro in
Mexico City, planning the
revolution in the home of
friends, and then heading
across a choppy sea on the
Granma with 82 men on
board. "Only 12 would sur-
vive to witness our victory,"
Che remembers.
What if? What if? What if?
What if you could take an
island nation for your own?
What if you could gather peo-
ple together and train them,
and swarm the cities and
bring the government to its
knees? What if? What if?
This is the glory of this
movie. It shows us how some-
thing that is usually only a
dream in the minds of the-
most restless men was one
time, in the late 1950s, made
manifest. They didn't just
dream it. They did it.
Most of the action takes
place in the Sierra Maestra,
the mountains in the Oriente
province in southeast Cuba
where the revolucionarios


trained and organized from
1956 until 1959. They slept
on the ground, exposed to the
elements, recruited guarijos
(peasants) trained them,
formed columns, and began to
take over. They came down
from the mountains, eventual-
ly, and took the plains, then

Clara, and then...well, Havana
we don't see in Part I.
"Che: Part I" is about the
early days of the revolution,
when everything seemed pos-
sible to these men in their
20s. A fellow revolutionary
and woman friend of Fidel
Castro told an interviewer
many years later that it was in
the Sierra Maestras in the late
50s that Fidel was happiest,
that they were all happiest.
The Puerto Rican-bom Del


Toro is marvelous as Che. He
doesn't bear much of a natu-
ral resemblance to the man
whom I.F. Stone described as,
"not just handsome but beau-
tiful." But with his strength
of character, he does well at
playing Che the beneficent
Argentinean doctor, who
became the comandante.
When President Batista's mil-
itary commander in Santa
Clara comes out to the street
to negotiate a truce, Che
stares into the center of the
man's pupils and tells him:
"This is not a coup. This is a
revolution." Surrender is the
only option we're giving you.
From the mists that linger
on the peaks of the Sierra
Maestra, a revolution has
emerged, and the start of a
new regime. It is remarkable
to watch. It would just be bet-
ter if we were watching a rev-
olution that had given the
Cuban people a hero, instead
of 50 years of tyranny. A
minor complaint, I know.
See next week's Keynoter
for a review of "Che: Part II,"
and the following week for an
expanded review of "After ,.

Future of Cuba's Revolution"

Can't get a good night's rest?


Clock change
can aggravate
your sleeping
The return to Daylight
Saving Time this weekend -
turn your clocks ahead one
hour before you go to sleep
tonight - brings to mind that


"springing ahead" .can mean
losing an hour of sleep, and
those vanished 60 minutes can
create problems for some peo-
ple.
More than one in five
Americans report getting less
sleep than they think they
need, according to the


National Sleep Foundation. At
least 70 million people in the
U.S. experience sleep prob-
lems for at least a few days -
some for as long as weeks or
months, the National Institutes
of Health reports.
Geoff Hux, sleep technolo-
gist at Mariners Hospital in
Tavernier, has recommenda-
tions for getting a good night's
sleep.
* Avoid caffeine, nicotine
and alcohol close to bedtime,
as those substances can dis-
rupt sleep.
+ Create a sleep-conducive
environment that is dark,
quiet, comfortable and cool.
* Avoid naps close to bed-
time.
+ Establish a regular bed-
time and wake-time schedule.
* Don't exercise within
two hours of bedtime.
If these suggestions fail to
help and you suspect you
might have a sleep disorder
such as sleep apnea syndrome,
insomnia or chronic snoring,
Hux suggests you talk with
your doctor about undergoing
a sleep study.

An offensive outburst
helped the Marathon High
School softball team break out
of a collective early season
slump this past week.
The girls, now 5-7, scored a
combined 26 runs en route to

coach Andrea Murphy said.
The girls avenged a 2-0 loss
in their season opener by
defeating Carroll in Marathon

game gave the girls a huge
confidence boost.

One of the newest additions
to the Coral Shores baseball
program helped keep the
Hurricanes undefeated in South


Florida Baseball Conference
play.
The Hurricanes (5-2 overall)
rallied for six runs in the bot-
tom of the fifth inning
Thursday to overtake
Archbishop Curley on the way
to a 13-6 victory.
Junior Chad White started
the rally with a leadoff single
and came around to score. He
also drew three walks, reaching


base in all four at-bats against
the Knights.
White, a January transfer
from Texas, got the pitching
win in relief.
"It feels great. It's just good
to be part of this team," he said.
"Everybody has greeted me

A brutal early-season
stretch continued for the
Marathon High School base-
ball team Tuesday.
Seventh-grader Yoniel
Esquirol performed well for
the Dolphins, accounting for
the team's only two hits on the
day, but the boys lost 18-1 to
Westminster Christian School
in their first home game of the
season.
Esquirol, the starting short-
stop, is indicative of the young
roster coach Luis Leal is
working with. The team grad-
uated several seniors last year.
The Dolphins have opened
the season with four straight
games against opponents from
a talented District 16-2A. The
result is an 0-4 record so far.
Westminster defeated the
Dolphins 10-0 in five innings
in the regular season opener

Up next for Marathon is a

Izaguirre tosses 2-hitter


Baseball Eagles
split against
Boca Christian
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Pitching was the difference
in Island Christian's split of
two games against the same
team last weekend.
The ICS Eagles won their
first game of the season Feb.
27 with a 10-0 shutout of Boca
Raton Christian, then lost to
the same team, 13-4, in a Feb.
28 rematch in Islamorada.
Eagle ace Phillip Izaguirre
threw a two-hitter in the victo-
ry, recording eight strikeouts
in the five-inning decision. He
walked three.
Catcher Jordan Izaguirre
starred at the plate, going 3-
for-3 with a double.


Freshman infielder Kadian
Carter and Phillip Izaguirre
each had two of the Eagles'
eight hits in the win.
Island Christian (1-2)
scored three runs in the first
inning and four more in the
third and never looked back.
The following day, Eagle
pitchers struggled. Boca Raton
scored six runs in the first
inning, making use of five
walks and a double.
Kaelin Carter came on in
relief and had a solid finish,
but the Eagle offense could
not catch up.
"We had 11 hits so we
should have been able to score
more than four runs," Eagle
head coach Tony Hammol.
Senior outfielder Aaron
Izaguirre singled, doubled and
tripled for the Eagles.
Jordan Izaguirre doubled
and singled, and Matt


Cavanagh was 2-for-2.
Island Christian hosts rival
Princeton Christian at 4 p.m.
Tuesday.
On Thursday, Westminster
Academy arrives at the ICS
campus for a 4 p.m. game.
Former Eagle coach Joe
Shadowens leads Westminster.
"It's always good to see Joe,
but he knows all our signals,"
Hammon laughed.
Results from . Friday's
scheduled home game against
Champagnat Catholic, one of
the toughest teams on the ICS
baseball schedule, were pend-
ing at press time. Champagnat
of Hialeah is the defending
champion in ICS' District 16-
A.

half. Senior Morgan

Conchs can't find offense


Baseball team
struggles
at the plate
y DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
baseball team's scoring slump
continued Tuesday afternoon
as the Conchs lost to Belen
Jesuit, 3-2, in their District
16-4A opener in Miami.
It was the third consecutive
loss for the Conchs (2-4 over-
all), and in that stretch they
are averaging 1.3 runs a game.
They have lost five consecu-
tive games at Belen.
The Wolverines scored two
runs in the first inning and one
in the second, chasing left-
handed starter Nick Bertiaux
from the mound. An error by
the right fielder on a fly ball


by Nolan Thomas enabled the
Conchs to cut the lead to 3-1
in the third.
An RBI single by Andrew
Rodriguez made it 3-2 in the
fourth, but further scoring was
prevented when Bertiaux hit
into a double play with the
bases loaded. The Conchs
couldn't score the rest of the
way against starter Andres
Wiltz or reliever Robert
Baroniel.
Frankie Ratcliff pitched a
scoreless 4 2/3 innings after
coming in from shortstop in
the second, allowing one hit
and striking out five. He thus
served notice that he could be
the team's most dependable
relief pitcher.
"It's always been the play
to try and use Frankie as a
closer-type guy," said coach
Miguel Menendez. He might


be the best pitcher on our
team, but he is so valuable as a
shortstop that we try not to use
him that much."
Ratcliff, the team's best hit-
ter last season, continued to
struggle with the bat, going 0
for 3 for the second consecu-
tive game.
"He is too good a hitter to
continue the way he has
been," Menendez said. "I have
tried to get him to become
more patient at the plate. I
think he is trying to do too
much at times and it has
caused him to swing at pitches
he would normally take. I
know he will hit like we
expect soon - I can see it com-
ing."
The Conchs, who played
late Friday against Monsignor
Pace, will play Mater
Academy tonight at 7:30 at
Rex Weech Field.

to the Florida Keys, he said.
White played JV for a large Texas
school as a sophomore.
Hurricane head coach Jeff
Meyers said the Canes had a list-
less start to the game, possibly a
carryover from Wednesday's 10-
4 loss to Gulliver Prep, leader in
the state District 16-3A stand-
ings.
"We were ahead of Gulliver,
4-3, but the thing is they just keep
sending pitcher after pitcher at
you," Meyers said. "We hit the
ball against them early but it
trailed off. Gulliver kept hitting."
At home Thursday against
Curley, the Canes started well
with a 3-1 lead after the first
inning but surrendered four
Knight runs in the second to trail,
5-3.
"We stopped hitting,", Meyers
said. "Finally they got their heads
back in the game and cranked it'
up." "
Junior shortstop Fabian
Placencia (two hits, three runs
scored) singled in the fourth and
scored off Bobby DePaula's sac-
rifice fly.
In the fifth, the Canes got six
hits from the first seven batters,
including White's leadoff single
and Trevor Sebastian's RBI dou-


ble.
Jonathan Rodriguez, Jake
Lane, Ryan Biondoletti,
LeDarius Sanders, Placencia and
DePaula also hit in the comeback
stanza.
White and the Hurricane
defense shut down Curley the
rest of the way.
A two-run double by
Biondoletti sparked a three-run
sixth for Coral Shores.
The South Florida Baseball
Conference was launched last
season to simplify scheduling,
and create a second league for
competition. Midway through the
conference schedule, defending
champion Coral Shores is 5-0
after playing every other league
team once.
"We've got five games left
and three of them are at home, so
we're feeling pretty good about
that," the coach said.
At Gulliver, Coral Shores
scored all four of its runs in a sec-
ond-inning rally keyed by hits
from White and Sebastian. Coral
Shores' lineup had five hits
against the Raiders.
Coral Shores plays at home
against conference contender St.
Brendan on Monday and district
foe Archbishop Carroll on
Wednesday. Both games at
Founders Park begin at 3:30 p.m.
