Fire threats
This is the third-driest

and fire officials worry
that grass fires, common
this time of year in Key
Largo. could become more
common - and more
intense. See story, Page 8.

Boaters know that
weather buoys in Keys

both knowing the condi-

A federal fugitive on the lam
for almost a year was shot twice
- including once in the face -
Tuesday in Marathon after point-


ing an assault rifle at authorities
attempting to arrest him.
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency agents had
received a tip that 53-year-old
Salt Lake City, Utah, resident
Larkin Baggett was staying in a
trailer .at the old Turnkey
Marine on llth Street bayside.
The property is now known as
Hog Key Marine.


Baggett was wanted for ille-
gally- treating and disposing of
hazardous waste and illegally
discharging acidic chemical
wastes into a sewer system.
Three EPA agents and a
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputy attempted to
serve an arrest warrant on
Baggett at the trailer shortly
before 9 a.m., but he threatened

By SEAN KINNEY

Jury selection in- a lawsuit
that could end up costing the
city ,of Key West millions is
ongoing and a federal judge is
expected to hear arguments later
this week.
The case, between the city of
Key West and Duck Tours
Seafari, has already been heard
by several courts and the most
recent decision said the city
owed $13.5 million; now that
figure is set to be recalculated
by a federal jury sitting in Key
West.
"It really all depends on the
jury," Key West City Com-
missioner Bill Verge said.
"Right now, in the climate, they
could think, 'Well, times are
tough.' Maybe the economy
will work in our favor."
Verge said any settlement

ing to EPA officials, who said the
officers were forced to defend
themselves;
In addition to being shot in
the face, Baggett was shot in the
stomach and airlifted to the
Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Special Agent
Supervisor Kathy Smith said he
was in surgery for most of the
day and was in a coma. He's
being held -on the federal war-
rant.
Information about who shot
Baggett, how many times he was
hit and how many shots were
fired has yet to be determined,
Smith said. But the trailer he was
staying in has numerous bullet
holes from the shooting.
The marina area was taped off
most of the morning as investiga-
tors from the Sheriff's Office,
EPA and other agencies investi-
gated.
An area about 30 feet long
and 20 feet wide that includes the
trailer was taped off inside the
marina. It's surrounded by boats
and marine parts.
It's unclear how Baggett came
to live in the trailer or for how
long, but Smith said he was leas-
ing it. A search warrant for the
trailer arrived on the scene at
around 4:30 p.m. No details were
available regarding who the trail-
er belongs to.
Smith said authorities found
ammunition and weapons inside
Baggett's silver Toyota four-door
pickup, which was parked out-
side the trailer.

Baggett was released from

awaiting trial and the federal
arrest warrant was issued last
April 22. He remained at large

got out of custody.
The illegal filling continued
throughout February and March
2002. The impacted area eventu-

acre. Balch's plea agreement
required him to remove the ille-
gally placed fill and restore the
shoreline to its original condi-

Cause of fire still unknown


3 businesses
burn, damaged
on Duval Street
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Three days later, Key West
fire officials are still trying to
determine the cause of a fire
that destroyed three Key West
businesses late Sunday night.
"Our guys have been on the
scene since the actual incident
started" around 10 p.m. Sunday,
Fire Chief David Fraga said
tuesday. "Right now, we're
awaiting the arrival of a piece of
equipment from the state."
Six firefighters received
minor injuries and three stores
are out of business as a result
of the Duval Street fire. The
injuries were relatively minor
and the firefighters were treat-
ed at the scene and returned to
work, Fraga said.
The burned businesses, all
sharing the address 512 Duval
St., are the American Royal
Arts gallery, La Creperie or
Karr Breiz, which specialized
in the French delicacy, and
Montage, which dealt in the
reproduction of popular Key
West signs.
"It's a big loss for us. And
we worked so hard; it's not
fair," Yolande Findlay said as
she watched. the fire from
across the street in front of
Willy T's on Sunday. Findlay
opened the crepe shop with
her partner Sylvie Lenouail
six years ago. Both are from
Brittany, in France. Findlay
said they were having their
best year ever.
The building occupied by
the three businesses is situated
between the historic San
Carlos Institute and Jimmy
Buffett's Margaritaville,
which, despite sustaining
smoke damage, reopened just
after noon on Monday.
The- American Royal Arts
gallery, which dealt in rock 'n
roll memorabilia, appears to
have the most damage; after.
the blaze, the roof eventually
collapsed.
Jason Cornley, manager of
the gallery, watched as his
shop burned. He said it was
hard to watch the firefighters
break the front windows and
to see the gallery destroyed.

Firefighters battle the blaze Sunday night. As of late Tuesday,
the cause of the Duval Street fired hadn't been determined.


Fraga said investigators
had a front-end loader deliv-
ered to the site Tuesday after-
noon and would use it to clear
out the debris so the investiga-
tion can continue.
Fire engines from the Key
West Fire. Department, the
Key West. International
Airport Fire Department,
Naval Air Station Key West
and Monroe County all
responded to the call.
Fraga said he's grateful for
the extra manpower because it
allowed a steady rotation of
firefighters:
"Our guys are committed to
what they do," he said.
"They're all about business."
Well into Monday morning,
Duval Street was closed
between Fleming ' and
Southard streets. The road has
reopened to traffic but the
sidewalk in front of the burned
businesses is still cordoned off
for the- continuing investiga-
tion.
The 5,200-square-foot
building, constructed in 1938,
was valued at just more than
$2.8 million last year, accord-
ing to the Monroe County
Property Appraiser's Office.

'Emergency' purchases only


ACEVEDO / From 1

her district credit card for per-
sonal use.
* "In the United States of
America, we are innocent until
proven guilty," Griffiths read
from a prepared statement. "I will
stop any questioning that sounds
investigative in nature ... [and] I
will not allow anyone on any side
to taint this investigation. When
the board has answers, the public
will have answers."
Some answers are, expected
from state auditors, who have
been collecting credit card
receipts and other purchasing
documents from the school
administration this week.
School Board attorney
Richard Collins said it might
take three weeks for auditors to
finish their report and release
their findings.
Monique Acevedo was the
district's coordinator of adult
education. As such, she oversaw
career training, GED classes,
English for Speakers of other
Languages classes and basic
adult courses in reading, writing,
math and science.


She earned $65,573 annually.
She also earned an additional
$18 an hour as office manager
for the adult and career educa-
tion department.
Ward received copies of her
credit card purchases from
Griffiths on Friday. Ward said he
would wait until the state audi-
tors have finished their investi-
gation to decide if there's reason
to prosecute anyone.
A third probe could come
from the School Board, which is
slated to hire a forensic auditor
during an emergency meeting at
11 a.m. Thursday at district
offices in Key West.
The board is also scheduled
to discuss hiring attorneys to
work with investigators, and a
* recommendation by board mem-
ber Debra Walker to adopt
Monroe County's rules for cred-
it card use.
Board member John Dick said,
he was "offended" by Walker's
recommendation because the cur-
rent board policy is clear.
"The policies were in place,"
he said. "The problem was fail-
ure."
District Finance Director
Kathy Reitzel first alerted state


auditors that plane tickets, sun-
glasses and other items had been
purchased with Monique
Acevedo's credit card. Randy
Acevedo said the purchases
were "accidental" and that his
wife repaid the district.
. Since then, Randy Acevedo
has said it was "not uncommon"
for employees to use district
cards for personal purchases and
then reimburse the district later.
Tuesday, he said some current
board members have even made
such reimbursements.
School District policy forbids
using district credit cards for any
personal purchases, with penal-
ties for violations including sus-
pension and criminal prosecution.
Board attorneys have been
unwilling to release Monique
Acevedo's credit card records,
which they claim are confiden-
tial while being investigated by
the state.
The board, however, ordered
the release of records for more
than . 90 other credit card
accounts.
Board members also agreed
that all district credit card pur-
chasing should be stopped except
for "emergency" purchases.


NWS: Run for


your lives!


Well, not really,
but forecasts to
focus on peril
McClatchy-Tribune

When hurricanes, tornadoes
and severe storms threaten,
there's one message forecast-
ers want residents to know: If
they don't get out of harm's
way, their lives could be in
danger.
For that reason, the
National .Weather Service
plans to better describe the
most perilous aspects of a
storm - be they winds, rain or
storm surge - and place them
at the top of advisories.
"It's not necessarily an
overhaul. It's just better focus-
ing the information we want
the public to really get," said
meteorologist Robert Molleda,
who is based in the Miami
office of the weather service.
Molleda said the change
stems from Hurricane Ike,
which slammed Galveston and


Houston last September. Some
of the local weather advisories
"buried" information urging
people to evacuate, he said.
At least 12 people died
along the Galveston shoreline
where the system's storm
surge hit, according to the
National Hurricane Center.
In another weather disaster,
the February 2008 Super
Tuesday Tornado Outbreak,
many residents failed to evac-
uate because they didn't
believe they were under threat
until they saw a twister. In all,
82 tornadoes killed 57 people,
with most of the deaths in
Arkansas, Mississippi,
Alabama and Tennessee.
After that outbreak, the
weather service -found that
many residents don't sense
peril based on forecasts alone.
The agency also discovered
that many people minimized
the threat because they had
"optimism bias," thinking bad
things only happen to other
people.

Damages

in dispute
DUCK TOURS / From I
whatever the settlement is, it's a
reasonable amount of money,"
he says.
Duck Tours Seafari, a com-
pany that uses rehabbed
World War II amphibious ves-
sels to provide land and sea
sightseeing tours, operated
briefly in Key West in the
mid-1990s but was forced to
shut down by the city in 1995.
At the time, city officials
said Duck Tours was violating
a law that prohibits sightsee-
ing or shuttle services from
having offices, depots, ticket
booths or passenger pickup
and drop-off sites within
1,000 feet of Historic Tours of
America locations. HTA oper-
ates the Conch Trains and Old
Town Trolleys.
HTA and all other franchise
businesses are-required to pay
the city 5 percent of gross
receipts or $210,000 per year,
whichever is greater.
In May 2005, a local jury
decided that Key West was
liable for $13.5 million in
damages to Duck Tours, say-
ing the franchise cost was a
barrier to enter the market and
that the 1,000-foot rule kept
Duck Tours from having a fair
shot at competing with HTA.
The city appealed .in
Circuit Court and won. But
Duck .Tours appealed the deci-
sion to the Third District
Court of Appeal, and Judge
Reagan Ptomey's ruling was
overturned in 2007.
Subsequently, the city
argued that the formula used
in calculating damages, based
on revenue that would have
gone to Duck Tours had it
stayed in business, is inaccu-
rate.
Now, it's up to the federal
jury to decide the amount of
damages.
Meanwhile, Verge said the
law regulating other businesses
from operating near HTA loca-
tions was supposed to be reex-
amined but "that has yet to.
happen."
The trial is before visiting
U.S. District Court Judge
Howard Harrison. Just selec-
tion continues today on the
third floor of the Freeman
Justice Center.

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's much-ballyhooed plan to acquire
187,000 acres of U.S. Sugar land to expand Everglades
recharge areas brought accolades last summer when the news
first broke.
Now, nearly seven months later, the news isn't so good.
That's because Florida finds itself facing the worst economic
downturn in modem history and spending $1.34 billion to buy
out U.S. Sugar is coming under increasing fire up in
Tallahassee:
The headline in Tuesday's Miami Herald was pretty blunt:
"Tax dip may sour sugar deal."
State economists are warning that early estimates of the
state's revenue shortfall, issued in early January, are already
looking overly optimistic.
And just in case you weren't paying attention, it's not Crist or
the Legislature footing the bill for this proposed U.S. Sugar
deal. Nope, it's the property owners in Monroe County and the
adjoining 15 other South Florida counties that are part of the
South Florida Water Management District.
Therein lies the rub.
The tax base for real property in those 16 counties has fallen
since the governor and his negotiating team first sat down with
U.S. Sugar.
Based on current projections, tax revenue for the district
would drop 14 percent this year, which means the ability of the
district to borrow and then pay off the huge debt becomes
much more compromised.
Shannon Estenoz, vice chairwoman of the district's govern-
ing board, was quoted in the Herald as saying "there is irony
about this. It's the best land to buy at the worst possible time."
Well, there's even growing debate about if this really is the
"best land to buy."
That's because the important effort to clean up the
Everglades relies on restoring wetlands and recharge areas to
reduce the awful impact of agricultural pollutants on water
flowing into the Everglades.
TheU.S. Sugar purchase actually involves more land than
can readily be used for that purpose, and gaps in the parcels that
lie between Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades.
So that means swapping out some land or buying more to
make this work. And that further jeopardizes all the existing
water cleanup programs the district has underway.
Caution and common sense argue for the district to opt out of
the deal before it's too late.
They have until Sept. 1 to either sign or walk away. It's pru-
dent to walk away.

Don't besmirch all real estate agents with one swoop


EDITOR:
Your recent reporting and headlines of
Prestige Realty Group's bankruptcy and the
investigation by the State Attorney's Office is
somewhat misleading. In 2003, I1 sold my compa-
ny, which later became Century 21 Prestige
Realty Group. In December 2008, I1 made an
agreement to take back the three Upper Keys
offices in Key Largo, Buttonwood Bay and
Islamorada. Much to the agents' delight, we
decided to go back to our former Century 21
Keysearch Realty name.
On Friday, the State Attorney's Office
retrieved Prestige Realty Group's property man-
agement records still stored on computers in our
Key Largo office and records stored at their Big
Pine Key office. State Attorney Dennis Ward has
assured everyone, including the press, and I s
assure you, that the investigation into their prop-
erty management records has absolutely nothing
to do with me or with Century 21 Keysearch
Realty, or any of our agents or staff.


There are two other independently owned and
operated Century 21 companies besides Century
21 Keysearch Realty doing business in the Keys.
Prestige Realty Group's affiliation with Century
21 was ended late last year.
By inserting "Century 21" into your head-
lines, you are tainting the hardworking, honest
agents at all of the Century 21 franchises. You
are also implicating the agents and staff at
Prestige Realty Group who have nothing to do
with the bankruptcy or the investigation and
whose reputations could suffer by the broad
stroke of your reporting.
If there is any wrongdoing at all, it has iloth-
ing to do with the agents who are out there work-
ing hard every day in a very difficult market. I
urge you to consider the innocent parties caught
up in this investigation and all of us doing busi-
ness under the Century 21 name.
George Nyman, president

Slow the speed limit throughout the Middle Keys


EDITOR:
It looks to me that we are waiting for a major
accident to happen before the speed limit drops in
Marathon. The speed limit is posted at 45 mph
but few travelers even observe the 45 mph.
To safely get out on U.S. 1, a cautious driver
will wait for the traffic lights at Sombrero Beach
Boulevard, then the lights at Walgreens. The mid-
dle lane to take either a left or a right is some-
times scary, too, as some people think that it is
OK to drive that center lane.


Why not change the speed limit to 30 or 35
mph from the Vaca Cut Bridge to the Seven Mile
Bridge? Between the two bridges, there's a lot
going on - Walgreens, Office Depot, etc., many
side streets, trying to get on U.S. 1. Then you
have the Winn-Dixie and Publix area, after which
is the theater, several motels, restaurants, Home
Depot, our utility offices, the hospital and library.
What are our officials waiting for?

Founders Park is an Islamorada jewel


EDITOR:
We've just passed the 10th anniversary of the
actions taken by members of the original
Islamorada Village Council to acquire the
Coulter property and create Founders Park.
� Then-Mayor Ron Levy and fellow council
members Frank Kulisky, George Geisler, Kym
Collins and Jim Mooney were true visionaries in
making the $9 million purchase of 40 acres and
marina on Florida Bay. There is little question
that they saved that precious space from eventu-
ally becoming another Duck Key.
Theproperty was bought with a competitive
bid loan secured at near 3 percent, of which the.
principal and interest payments are paid by sales
tax funds that prior to incorporation had been
.going to Key West and Monroe County.
The initial improvements were also paid off
with money that previously went to the county
along with the sale of some transfer development
rights.
The park is a wonderful success. While there
have been predictable differences about priorities
and allocations,; the bottom line is the park has
increased our quality of life, increased property
values, brought us national recognition and pre-
served needed open public space for many kinds
of events, including the highly successful Upper
Keys Rotary Nautical Flea Market, which has
raised approximately $1 million over the past


decade or so that has gone back into our commu-
nity, primarily into our schools.
There are still differences about the use of the
park. For instance, I am not convinced that putting
up an administration and fire station building is the
best use of scarce park space. Nevertheless, it's
worth pausing for a moment to thank the original
council members for their foresight in creating this
incredibly valuable asset for our community.

All the best to the best


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Marathon
Jaycees, I would like to extend a huge
thank you to everyone who participat-
ed in and supported our recent Best
Of Marathon gala. We were so hon-
ored to have such an amazing turnout
consisting of community leaders,
business owners, neighbors and
friends.
It would take way too much space
to name everyone who did their part
to make this event successful, howev-


er, we do want to mention our major
sponsors, the Marathon Weekly, First
State Bank, Fishermen's Hospital, the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce and the Singh Co.
Congratulations to all the "bests"
in Marathon and to the incoming
Jaycee board members. We look for-
ward to another year of professional
development, service to our commu-
nity, and, of course, lots of fun.
Maria Luther, president
Marathon Jaycees


Chamber has ambassadors, too


EDITOR:
I want to extend my sincere thanks
to the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce. The chamber recently
brought the world-renowned Harlem
Ambassadors. to the Coral Shores
High School gym for a fundraising
evening of excitement.
I would like to publicly acknowledge
the efforts of chamber President Jackie
Harder and event Chairman Rick Hill,
along with those of committee members
Nola Acker, Jeannine Cook, Conny
Fitzgerald and Margie Whisenhunt.
Each was incredibly organized; each
personified dependability. I would be
remiss if I failed to mention the wonder-
ful spirit each brought to this highly
successful event. Thank you to the Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce.

We can all do more to recycle


EDITOR:
Islamorada winter residents may-
be unaware of the increased materials
that can be recycled in the village
compared to previous years. Plastics
numbered 1 through 5 (on the bottom
of containers such as yogurt cups,
strawberry and blueberry packaging),
retail and dry cleaning bags, straws,
medical tubing, cereal box liners,
office paper, junk mail and more can
be placed in your recycling bins.
These recyclables are picked up
weekly, trucked to Florida City, sort-
ed and processed.
Islamorada residents can also recy-
cle aluminum, bi-metal, steel or tin
cans, and glass containers (please, do
not break). These should be cleaned,
rinsed and have the lids removed.
On the home page of the village's
Web site, www.islamorada.fl.us,
under "environmental sustainability,"
there are links to more information: '
Veolia Environmental Services'
(Islamorada's waste contractor) recy-
cling guide; plastics and how to prepare
them for recycling; and Veolia's e-mail
address (heather.maneth@veoliaes


.com) to request a residential recycling
bin, information to arrange a commer-
cial recycling account, or for general or
solid-waste pickup questions. Veolia's
phone number is 853-3433.
Islamorada is committed to envi-
ronmental sustainability, and on Feb.
21 was honored with the local gov-
ernment Green Living Award by the
Florida Keys Green Living & Energy
Education group, www.keysglee.com.
Since the increased recyclables
program began in October, comparing
month to month to the previous year,
Islamorada's recycling rate increased
by 3 percent in October, 5 percent in
November and 7 percent in December
and January. We have improved but
can do better, given the vast amounts
of materials that can be recycled now
compared to a year ago.
Because it costs roughly half as
much to dispose of recyclables as it
does non-recyclable solid waste, we
all stand to benefit through lower
solid-waste assessments on our tax
bills if everyone recycles more.

Councilwoman, Tavernier


The letter writer gives a demonstration to elementary school children at the Animal
Farm, which has all sorts of animals from all sorts of species.

Farm chief gets the true rewards


EDITOR:
I would like to thank the people of this
community for supporting the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Animal Farm. In
the past month, I have received many com-
ments from farm visitors, people on the
street and around town - "keep up the
good work," "what a wonderful program,"
"what a great way to spend a Sunday after-
noon." It sure is nice to be appreciated.
My job is not just a paycheck; it's a full-
time labor of love. I have always believed
that. it's not about the money. If you work.at
something you love, you'll be rewarded. In
these difficult times, I am fortunate to be


doing something I love, and privileged to
be able to do something important and spe-
cial for this community I have loved and
called home for the last 11 years.
Working with the inmates/trusties who
care for the animals on the farm has been
both rewarding and challenging at times. If
I have changed just one life, then I have
made a difference. My true reward is in the
faces of the animals I have come to love
and the joy that others express when they
see that love as well.

Letter writer misleads about Conch Republic


EDITOR:
With reference to the letter from Marty
Katz headlined "All of the Keys comprise
the Conch Republic."
I could not agree more, from the earliest
days when Dennis Wardlow traveled to Key
Largo to establish the Conch Republic, to
1994 when I had the County Commission
make it official with a resolution stating that
Dennis Wardlow had spoken for all the
Florida Keys in 1982. That said, the rest of
the letter was pure bunkum.
The writer failed to state that as the
owner of Largo Cargo, he is member of the
Upper Keys Business Group, which has sued
me, the county and the Tourist Development
Council. Very unfunny things, lawsuits.
The writer also failed to state that the
shop sells and profits from Conch Republic
souvenirs, including many featuring pirated
intellectual properties of mine, such as "we
seceded where others failed" and "seeking to
bring more humor, warmth and respect" as
describing the Conch Republic. Please cease.
Meanwhile, the writer seeks to mislead
the public when calling the dispute with the
Upper Keys Business Group as about
money. This is not about money. It is about
quality control and the very soul of the
Conch Republic.


The Conch Republic cannot countenance
the Upper Keys Business Group placing a pic-
ture of an exploding atomic bomb (the ulti-
mate human horror) on its Web site as a joke.
In the early 1990s the Key Largo
Chamber of Commerce put up a billboard
in Florida City depicting an American eagle
wearing a hippie headband with the words,
"Welcome to the Conch Republic." This
billboard showed intense disrespect for one
of America's most sacred symbols. Dennis
Wardlow and I protested to the rafters, and
got the billboard taken down.
The Conch Republic has never been
about disrespecting America. This is why I
insisted to the Upper Keys Business Group
that any public utterance in the name of the
Conch Republic be approved by my office
before release. That is the problem.
As to the call on us all to "work, profit,
expand and celebrate a unified Conch
Republic," I could not agree more.
Instead of stealing the work of others,
why don't those unfunny people in the
Upper Keys Business Group come to the
table and play with respect for the Conch
Republic, its longtime leaders and patriots,
and yes, even me, the secretary general.

Wildfire threat increases in Key Largo


Lack of rain
has firefighters
on red alert
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

"The red flags are up," said
Key Largo Volunteer Fire Chief
Sergio Garcia.
One of the driest winters on
record in South Florida has raised
concerns about wildfires, prompt-,
ing the alert.
"Just about every year around
this time, we get called to grass
fires between Card Sound Road
and U.S. I," Garcia said. "As dry
as it's been, we're expecting the
same this year."
Rainfall in the Keys - and all
of South Florida - has remained
significantly below average,
extending from the end of hurri-


cane season in November.
So far in 2009, Key West has
seen only about an inch and a half
of rainfall - nearly 2.8 inches
below normal, said National
Weather Service forecaster Wes
Hovorka.
Marathon has recorded 2.73
inches of rain, about half the
average.
Grass fires in March and April
are common south of Florida-
City, on occasion forcing the clo-
sure of both U.S. 1 and Card
Sound Road.
"Usually the grass fires are in
Miami-Dade County, but we still
have to be careful here," Garcia
said.
"We're working to improve
our fire-hydrant system but it's
still not the best source of water,"
the chief said. "Our homes are
built close together, so the poten-
tial of a fire spreading is greater


than in some areas. That's why
we have the ordinance, against
burning yard debris."
At the month started, South
Florida's dry season has been one
of the most parched since record
keeping started in 1932, accord-


An average of

ing to the South Florida Water
Management District. Only two
other years saw drier conditions.
The winter storm system that
brought snows as far south as


Georgia in recent weeks "fun-
neled a cold and dry air mass into
the Sunshine State that will
increase the wildfire threat
statewide," according to the
Florida Division of Emergency
Management. "Gusty winds com-
bined with this dry air mass have
prompted red-flag warnings for
dangerous fire weather condi-
tions nearly statewide."
Department Director Craig
Fugate - President Obama's
nominee to head the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
- urged Floridians "to be very
careful with the use of fire and
flammable materials in and out-
side of the home."
The Water Management
District cautioned, "The stage is.
set for drought conditions to wors-
en if adequate rain does not fall.",
An average of 0.41 inches of
rain fell across the 16-county dis-
trict in February, 1.78 inches
below the historical average for


the month. Rainfall for the dry
season is down 6.65 inches to
date.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson warned that since
Jan. 1, Florida has seen 1,024
wildfires burn a total of 24,730
acres. That compares with 508
fires and 11,292 acres at this time
last year.
Water-preservation rules
remain in effect for South
Florida.
Lake Okeechobee's water
level was 12.61 feet earlier this
week. The water level stands
nearly 2 feet below the historical
average for the date, although it
remains more than.2.5 feet higher
than what was reported in 2008,
during the driest two-year period
on record.
Tropical Storm Fay caused the
lake - South Florida's primary
water reserve - to rise above
potentially catastrophic low levels.

Money sinks part of mariners' buoy system


Weather chief:
We need boaters

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

.The only Gulf of Mexico
ocean-monitoring buoys
between the Florida Keys and
the mainland likely will be
pulled out of the water this
week.
"There's no money to cali-
brate the instruments," said
Jyotika Virmani, executive
director of the Florida Coastal

Consortium, based in St.
Petersburg.

Sand Key near Key West has
been brought in for repairs.
"Right now, we are totally
reliant on mariner reports for
information on sea conditions
on both sides of the islands,"
said Matt Strahan, meteorolo-
gist in charge of the National
Weather Service station in
Key West.
With heavy marine traffic
in the Florida Straits and
nearshore Keys waters, the
weather service knows that
knowing sea conditions are a
critical element of nautical
forecasts.
"We have a system for
modeling wave heights,"
Strahan said, "but without the
buoy information, we need
reports to tell us if the models
are accurate."
The two gulf buoys - one
above water, one underwater


l Florida Keys

- were deployed by the
University of South Florida
for experimental purposes, but
information from them
became part of the coastal
monitoring system.
"Two years ago, we applied
for a .[federal] grant of more
than $3 million needed to
maintain the system," Virmani
said. "We got $400,000."
Complex instruments on
the buoys must be serviced
about every six months, she
said. That requires boat trips
and man hours.
"After six months, the
accuracy begins to drift.
There's no point having them
out there if they're not giving
you good information."
Seven of 12 buoys in the
Florida Coastal system will be
removed over the next year
because of budget shortfall.
The two closest to the Keys
are slated for removal this

While the USF buoys do
not measure wave heights,
they do record currents, water
temperature, barometric pres-
sure and other information
used in weather prediction.
The weather service contin-
ues to get accurate climate
information from stations on
lighthouses at the Keys reef,
but only the buoy that used to
be tethered in deepwater off
Key West gave actual wave
heights.
"Making marine forecasts
is tricky down here," Strahan


said. "Wave height is affected
by so many things - not just
wind speed but direction, the
location of the Gulf Stream,
and how close you are to a
channel."
Mariners from commercial
charter captains to Key West
harbor pilots rely on the
weather reports, he said.
"The maritime industry is
our biggest customer down
here by far," Strahan said.
The service welcomes actu-
al condition reports from
cruise ships, ocean-going
yachts-and charter captains.

Two women report rapes


Cops: Suspect
admits guilt
in one of them
One man was jailed in a
Stock Island rape on Saturday
and a woman reported another
rape two days later on Little
Torch Key.
Charles Snyder, 30, of Crown
Point, Ind., was charged with
sexual battery in the Saturday
attack on a 21-year-old woman
from Orlando. Authorities say he
admitted the crime.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says the victim was visit-
ing the Keys on Spring Break
and staying at Boyd's
Campground on Stock Island
with two male friends.
They arrived around 2 a.m.
-and set up a tent, and the woman
then went inside it to go to sleep.
Her two friends were setting up
another tent but had trouble, so
took a break and went for a walk.
As they returned, Deputy
Becky Herrin says, they saw
Snyder sitting in a pickup at the
lot next to theirs. He offered them
vodka and the three were drink-


ing together
ff or awhile
, . when "Snyder
made a sexual
. . .remark about
the victim,"
Herrin says.
Offended, the
two friends of
SNYDER the victim
parted compa-
ny with Snyder and went across
the street for breakfast.
While they were ordering
food, the woman called them and
told them she'd just been sexual-
ly assaulted. She described a
man who looked like Snyder.
The two found Snyder at the
campground sitting in a shower
stall and tried to detain him while
they called the Sheriff's Office.
A female witness later told
deputies she saw the two men
punch and kick Snyder several
times while attempting to detain
him. Snyder broke away and
jumped into the water.
Deputies arrived and found
Snyder in the water near the
campground. That's when he
reportedly admitted to crawling


into the woman's tent and
assaulting her.

Little Torch case
In the second, separate case, a
Little Torch Key called deputies
at 10:30 p.m. Saturday to report
being raped as she walked home.
The woman said she was
walking along Pirates Road
when a man came out of the
bushes and grabbed her, threw
her to the ground and raped her.
She said during the attack, he
told her he'd been watching her
for some time. The victim told
Deputy Nick Oettinger she does
have a regular routine and he
could have been watching her
and planning the attack.
The woman described her
attacker as dirty and smelling of
alcohol. She said he's white,
about 6 feet tall with a medium
build and brownish shaggy hair.
He was wearing blue jeans, a
white T-shirt and a baseball cap.
Anyone with information
should contact the Sheriff's
Office or call Crime Stoppers;
the hotline is (800) 346-TIPS.
Tipsters can remain anonymous
and may receive a reward.


Marina flush

with new equipment


Showers, sinks,
laundry machines
finally installed
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Laundry and shower lines
at the City of Marathon
Marina will be much shorter
by the end of the month.
The finishing touches are
being put on a new 2,561-
square-foot bathhouse that
Ports Manager Richard Tanner
said will be used by more than
600 marina patrons during the
season. Tanner said the build-
ing will be open after sewer
lines are up and running -
perhaps even by the end of the
month.
"We do have a permit from
[the Department of Health]
and it's just a matter of the
work being done," he said.
The bathhouse features 12
restrooms with showers, two
of which are handicap-acces-
sible. There are also eight toi-
lets with sinks, four each for
men and women. Two of those
are handicap-accessible as


well.
The laundry room at the
new building houses six com-
mercial washing machines and
six commercial dryers. Tanner
said the marina has three of
each machine now and that
they are around 10 years.old.
Marina patrons will be
given a plastic card that works
much like a hotel room card
and can be charged up to $40,
as needed. Tanner said that
allows flexibility depending
on the length of stay.
"Some of the cruisers that
come in here only want to do a
day's worth of wash," he said.
The card will also work for the
showers.
Tanner said the city needed
a new bathhouse but its con-
struction could be especially
timely, given talk of President
Obama lightening travel and
trade restrictions to Cuba.
Vice Mayor Don Vasil has
been outspoken about the city
marina being a provisioning
destination for cruisers on
their way to the island, which
lies just 90 miles south of
Marathon.

City wary of losing share of gas tax


It currently
is receiving
$,1.2 million
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West city government
is bracing for the possibility
- however remote - of los-
ing more than $1 million in
gas taxes to help maintain
infrastructure.
City Manager Jim Scholl
told the Keynoter, "There's
currently an agreement on
how the money is apportioned.
They're [the Monroe County
Commission] talking about
potentially dong away with
that distribution."
Basically, for every gallon
of fuel sold in the county,
there is a 6-cent tax that is dis-
tributed to the cities in the
county. /


As it stands, Key West
receives just over 36 percent
of the total tax collected,
which, in fiscal year 2008-09,
was $1.2 million.
The agreement with the
county that guides the funding
expires on June 30, and the
city doesn't know what the
county is going to do.
"The idea is, currently, we
are getting that gas tax that
goes into transportation infra-
structure funds" and is spent
to maintain roads, bridges and
traffic lights, Scholl said.
"We'd certainly like to keep
the revenue stream," he said.
The same agreement that
Key West has with the county
also includes the cities of
Marathon, Islamorada, Key
Colony Beach and Layton.
The - Marathon City
Council, which budgeted to
receive $290,000 this fiscal

year in gas tax revenue, is of
the same opinion as Key West
politicos: We want to keep our
money.
The County Commission
has scheduled for March 18 a
discussion, about whether to
change the funding formula,
as well as discussion to levy a
new fuel tax, which could be
anywhere from 1 to 5 cents a
gallon.
"I'm not a big fan of new
taxes," Scholl said. "But,
again, those types of revenues
certainly provide the dollars
for infrastructure."
If the County Commission
decides to keep the share of


the 6-cent tax that Key West
currently gets, it'll look to the
possible new tax to make up
the revenue.
An executive summary pre-


pared by Scholl's office makes
clear that in the event of a new
tax, the city wants the distri-
bution to follow the same for-
mula as the current system.

Planning Board changes


Garcia, Allen
resign, lawyers
replace them
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Change is afoot for the Key
West Planning Board, as two
members of the board have
resigned and two new appointees
have taken their places.
Terry Garcia and Jeff Allen
both announced their resigna-
tions, quietly. They are being
replaced by attorney Greg
Oropeza and attorney Michael
Browning.
Garcia and Allen had little to
say for their reasons for resign-
ing.
Garcia told the Keynoter, "I
have no comment. I'm a private


person. I did enjoy being on the
board."
City Planning Director Amy
Kimball-Murley said via e-mail
that Garcia was resigning to
focus on his career.
Asked what his career is,
Garcia said, "I do multitudes of
different things. I don't want a
story written about me."
Allen, an accountant by trade,
replied to questions via an e-mail
from his assistant Kristin Story.
She wrote: "Mr. Allen and
family have purchased a home
outside Key West city limits, and
can no longer serve on the
Planning Board."
City code dictates that
Planning Board members must
live in the city.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson appointed Allen in

August 2008 for what would
have been a three-year term.
Garcia was appointed in
February 2007 by Commissioner
Dan Kolhage, who recently
announced he will not seek
another term in office.
Allen and Garcia will be rec-
ognized for their service at the
Key West City Commission
meeting on March 18, at 6 p.m. in
Old City Hall on Greene Street.
McPherson's new appoint-
ment is attorney Oropeza and
Kolhage's appointment is attor-
ney Browning.
Oropeza, 26, received his law
degree, with an emphasis in land-
use law, from Florida State
University last year.
"I'm happy to bring a new
perspective," he said. Oropeza
said revising the city's dated
comprehensive land-use plan,
which reflects state-mandated
development rules, is the big-
ticket item for the Planning
Board in the coming year.
Browning didn't return phone
calls on Tuesday but a resume he
submitted to the City Clerk's
Office says he is president of
New Moon Management Group,
which oversees Old Town Self-
Storage, Roy's Trailer Park and
other commercial properties.
The Planning Board makes
decisions on city land-use regula-
tions, zoning and the like. Last
year, the Planning Board also
took over the responsibility of the
Board of Adjustment, which
decides on things such as height-
variance requests and easements.
Oropeza and Browning will
sit with the Planning Board for
the first time on March 19 at 6
p.m. in Old City Hall.

Money to buy sugar land at risk


Falling revenue
could mean deal
off the table
Miami Herald

South Florida's steep drop in
property values threatens to
claim another victim - the gov-
ernor's $1.34 billion plan to buy
U.S. Sugar Corp. land for
Everglades restoration.
Property values are expected
to drop 12 percent statewide in
the 2009-10 budget year but in
the 16 counties that make up the

WEEKEND


South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, property values
have dropped at least 14 percent,
early state estimates show.
It raises the question of
whether we can "afford this
deal," said Sen. J.D. Alexander,
the Lake Wales Republican who
is the Senate budget chief and a
vocal opponent of the $1.34 bil-
lion proposal.
The Water Management
District draws much of its annual
budget from property taxes on
the 16 counties it oversees,
including Monroe. Without the
expected tax revenue, district
officials acknowledge they may
not be able to afford the estimat-
ed $100 million in annual debt
payments to bankroll the deal.
"I'm deeply concerned," said
Shannon Estenoz, vice chair-
woman of the South Florida
Water Management District's
governing board and a former
Key West resident. "There is just
an irony about this. It's the best
land to buy at the worst possible
time."
But Gov. Charlie Crist, the
architect of the deal, said

Monday that he hopes the declin-
ing property values won't inter-
fere with his ambitious plan to
buy up 180,000 acres of U.S.
Sugar land. If it does, he is open
to considering other options.
"There may be a way to sort of
modify it to save some money in
light of [declining tax rev-
enues]," Crist said.
Among the options the gover-
nor's staff and Water Manage-
ment District officials are consid-
ering is a plan to scale back the
deal by allowing other property
owners, such as Florida Crystals
and other yet-to-be-named par-
ties, to purchase the sugar mill
and other pieces of land that the
state buys from U.S. Sugar.
The deal would involve a trans-
action that allows the state to buy
the U.S. Sugar property and then
simultaneously sell parts of it.
"Because of the economic
conditions today people are rais-
ing a lot of questions about
whether you want to do this
deal," said Robert Coker, vice
president of public affairs for
U.S. Sugar. "It's forcing a lot of
people to go back and be as cre-
. ative as they can to find ways to
get that goal accomplished."
At Estenoz's behest, the gov-
erning board inserted a financial
"out" clause when it approved
the $1.34 billion contract with
U.S. Sugar in December, caution-
ing that the state's deepening
financial crisis could undermine
the agency's ability to close the
deal.
The board can withdraw the


offer if financing the purchase
threatens to bankrupt the
agency's budget or gut "core"
operations.
State economists meeting at
the Revenue Estimating
Conference last week concluded
that property values throughout
the state will drop 12 percent in
the next budget year.
The Miami Herald and St.
Petersburg Times analyzed the
economists' data and found that, if
the numbers are correct, the 16
counties of the Water Manage-
ment District should expect a 14
percent drop in property values in
the 2009-10 budget year.
That would reduce the dis-
trict's total property tax revenue
value from $522 million in 2008-
09 to $449 million. In the previ-
ous year, the district's property-
tax revenue dropped only 5 per-
cent.
Estenoz said the decision
about whether to pull out is up to
the board. All but one of eight
were appointed by Crist, who has
championed the deal.
Once the agency has final rev-
enue numbers and credit costs,
she said board members would
have to weigh any trade-offs
before deciding whether to close
the deal. "I don't think we can
answer the question yet," she
said.
The district has until Sept. 1 to
sign off on the deal that will
enable the state to purchase 30-
year bonds. County tax collectors
have until July 1 to certify the
final property values.

State Farm appealing rule


Insurance giant
says McCarty
oversteps power
Associated Press

State Farm Florida on Friday
appealed stipulations that
Insurance Commissioner Kevin
McCarty has put on its plan to
withdraw from the state's prop-
erty insurance market because.
of the high risk of hurricanes.
Florida's second largest
insurer of homes and other
property filed an administrative
appeal that argues McCarty
exceeded his legal authority by
setting the conditions on the
two-year phase-out plan.
The conditions include a
requirement that State Farm
Florida transition its homeown-
er policies - about 800,000 -
to other private companies but
not to the state-created Citizens
Property Insurance Co.
Citizens was intended to be
an insurer of last resort but has
become Florida's largest proper-
ty insurance company with
more than 1 million policies.


Other conditions would
allow State Farm agents to write
policies with other companies
and make State Farm Florida
give up its state license within
30 days of the withdrawal plan's
approval
State Farm Florida is a sub-
sidiary of Bloomington, Ill.-
based State Farm Insurance,
which intends to continue sell-
ing auto and life insurance in the
state.
"We will carefully review
that petition to make sure that it
clearly outlines all disputed
issues of material facts and
meets legal sufficiency require-
ments," said McCarty
spokesman Ed Domansky.
McCarty has 15 days to com-
plete his review. If the petition
doesn't meet those criteria he-
can order State Farm Florida to
resubmit it. Once approved, the
appeal would go to an adminis-
trative law judge for a hearing.
The petition argues state law
doesn't give McCarty the power
to prohibit any insurer from
making a business decision to
stop operating in Florida and


that allowing agents to write
policies for companies, with the
exception of Citizens, would
violate the exclusivity provision
of their contracts with State
Farm Florida.
"When people go to a State
Farm Florida agent, they expect
to buy a policy of a State Farm
Florida affiliate," company
lawyers wrote in the petition.
There's an exception, though,
in the contract that allows the
agents to write Citizens policies
because it is a governmental
entity.
Requiring the company to
give up its license in 30 days
would make it difficult, if not
impossible, for State Farm
Florida to obtain backup cover-
age called reinsurance that's
needed to cover potential hurri-
cane losses during the phase-out
period, the company argued.
State Farm Florida
announced its intention to go
out of business after McCarty
turned down a requested 47.1
percent rate increase. Company
officials said the insurer will
soon became insolvent even
without any hurricanes if it can-
not increase premiums.

TDC revises Cuba plan


Wheeler: Let them
play in Havana,
stay in the Keys
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

The board of the Tourist
Development Council met
Tuesday at the Pier House Resort
in Key West and heard a presen-
tation from TDC Director Harold
Wheeler on a revised plan for
marketing the Florida Keys as a
tourist destination when' Cuba
opens to American tourists.
The 10-page report includes a.
"Keys plus Cuba" advertising
campaign - targeted to visitors
to the Keys who are also curious
about Cuba; and a "Cuba plus
Keys" campaign - targeted to
visitors to Cuba who might be
interested in a side trip to the
Keys. The report is less enthusi-
astic in tone than might be
expected, and seems to signal the
need to head off a net loss in
tourists to the Keys after the
opening of Cuba.
"Cuba's growing tourism
industry presents a future chal-
lenge to The Florida Keys & Key
West and is already diverting
international visitor business
from Canada, Europe and South
America," the first page of the
plan reads.
The TDC first adopted a Cuba
strategic marketing plan in 2002,
following a TDC Inter-
Governmental Cuba Report
approved in 2000. The revised
marketing plan was drafted by
Wheeler and distributed to TDC
members last week.
Central to the revised plan,
says Wheeler, is the belief that
Cuba is not prepared to handle a
large influx of American tourists.
He points to Cuba's own statistics
agency, which reports that there
were just 1 million foreigners vis-
iting Cuba in 1996, but 2.3 mil-
lion in 2008.
The International Monetary
Fund estimates that if Cuba
opened today, more than 3 mil-
lion Americans would want ,to
visit in the first year. There are
not, says Wheeler, anywhere near
enough hotel rooms to accommo-
date that many American tourists.
And what's available in the way
of hotel accommodations and
transportation may be of a lower

standard than many Americans
expect.
"This problematic impact to
their [Cuba's] tourism program
may cause a negative word of
mouth image from first time visi-
tors," the plan reads. "We believe
that this negative image impact
will play a large motivational role
in the marketing strategy of pro-
moting the 'Keys Plus Cuba'
campaign."
In the "Keys plus Cuba" pro-
gram outlined in the plan, the
TDC would work to maintain the
Keys brand "while .utilizing sec-
ondary promotional tactics that
quietly defend against loss of
U.S. and International Florida
Keys & Key West visitor busi-
ness to Cuba."
The TDC, using its contracted
advertising and public relations
agencies, would use "highly tar-
geted" media to reach Florida
Keys "prime prospects" who are
tempted by trips to Cuba. And it
would encourage tourists to stay
at Keys hotels while taking day
trips by ferry or plane to Cuba.
The plan outlines the demo-
graphic profile of tourists who
would be most likely to have an
interest in-a "Keys plus Cuba"
vacation.
In North America, they are
people ages 35 to 64 with annual
incomes of $75,000 and up who
live in New York, New Jersey,
Connecticut, Massachusetts,
Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania,
Illinois, Ohio, Texas, Georgia,
Canada and Florida and who are
interested in "Florida
Keys/Caribbearfregion sun desti-
nation, eco, adventure, nostalgia,
heritage and gay travel."
Internationally, a "Keys plus
Cuba" campaign would be target-
ed toward those with similar
interests who live in' Germanv.


'Two Nation
Vacation'
is an
advertising
tag line that
might be
used by
the TDC to
promote a
future 'Keys
plus Cuba'
advertising
campaign.


Italy, France, Spain, Scandinavia
and Latin America.
Also of note in the plan is the
encouragement of cooperation
with Cuba's tourist agencies,
most of which are controlled by
Cuban military officers and run
as entrepreneurial ventures out of
the Cuban defense ministry.
They include encouraging co-
ops and concierge programs with
upscale resorts in Cuba and the
Keys; and partnering on fishing
tournaments, dive excursions,
and historical and cultural excur-
sions.
A number of potential adver-
tising slogans are listed in the
plan, including: For Key West
and Havana Historic home tours
- "We're making history again";
for a Florida Keys and Cuban
waters fishing tournament - "So
much to catch up on"; for pack-
age -tours to Key West and
-Havana: "Two nations. One
Vacation."
Wheeler says the Cuba mar-
keting plan will likely be fol-
lowed by a more detailed plan, to
include a budget for marketing
and advertising, but that this
would not be taken up until Cuba
opens to American travelers. And
when that might happen is any-
one's guess.
Last month, the U.S. House
passed a spending bill that
includes a provision easing U.S.
travel to Cuba. But the compan-
ion bill foundered in the Senate
after two Democratic senators,
Robert Menendez of New Jersey
and Florida's Bill Nelson, broke
ranks, citing their opposition to
the Cuba provisions.
President Obama has indicat-
ed a desire to ease travel restric-
tions for Cuban exiles, but recent-
ly said that he is not in favor of
lifting the embargo. for now.

It's raining fun


And education at upcoming National Weather Service open house


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com'

Key West residents and visi-
tors get the chance to go behind
the scenes of the National
Weather Service's start-of-the-art
forecasting center in Key West in
a week and a half.
On March 21, the Weather
Service will open its doors to the'
public and offer a variety of fun
and educational programs. It's
billed as National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
Science Saturday; NOAA is the
parent agency of the Weather
Service.
"A key element this year will
be NOAA All-Hazard Radio. A
lot of people think that after Nov.
30 [the end of the six-month hur-
ricane season], you can throw the
weather radio in the closet until
June 1," forecaster Bill Cottrill
told the Keynoter. "That's not
the case."
He pointed to a storm that hit
Marathon on Feb. 2 involving
straight-line winds between 70
mph and 80 mph that caused
damage to the Island Fish Co.
"If they had had a weather
radio, they would have had 15
minutes warning on what was
about to happen," Cottrill said.
In addition to talking about
the benefits of the radio system,
NOAA staffers will operate a tor-
nado tank; touch tanks from the
Florida Keys Eco-Discovery
Center with native marine life
will be on hand; staff from the
Ocean Prediction Center in
Washington, D.C., will discuss
offshore forecasting; and repre-
sentatives from the National
Hurricane Center in Miami will
attend to offer information on
what exactly it is they do.
The open house runs from 1
p.m. to 5 p.m. March 21 at the
National Weather Service office
at 1315 White St. Admission is
free, and the day will include live
music and food; proceeds go to
benefit the Sanctuary Friends
Foundation of the Florida Keys.
Forecasters will conduct tours
of the weather office and, at 3
p.m., they will release an atmos-
pheric weather balloon, which

Two close wins in doubles
play gave the Coral Shores girls a
narrow 4-3 team win over local
rival Key West High School in
tennis action Monday in
Tavernier.
The Conch boys dominated
the Hurricane lineup, 6-1.
"Our boys are.stepping up and
will be competitive in the future,"
said Coral Shores coach Blake
Fry. "Our girls are there now."
Coral Shores' girls win moved
the team record to 5-1, the only
setback coming to Marathon
High School's Lady Dolphins.
Key West's girls held a 3-2
edge after singles play, with wins
from No. 1 Gabby Scammacca,
8-2 over Allison Rhyne, No. 2
Rae Lark over Annie Leopold,


and No. 4 Bridget Behmke over
Michaela Walters.
Coral Shores had to reshuffle
its lineup with regular No. 2
Casey Rhyne out sick, but junior
Tianna Morton picked up an 8-1
win over Key West's Raquel
Stockton at No. 3 and freshman
Katie Fry made her varsity sin-
gles debut at No. 5 with an 8-3
decision over Tori Fitzsimmons.
Allison Rhyne, returning to
the Canes' No. 1 singles spot,
teamed with Leopold to win the
top doubles spot, 8-6.
Freshman Kelsey Thiele and
Morton fell behind early in the
No. 2 doubles but rallied for an 8-
3 win. "Tianna had a great day,"
Fry said. "Her experience was a
big factor. She showed me a lot."
Fry said the play of "hungry"
freshmen like Thiele, Katie Fry
and Savannah Koval gives the
Lady Canes depth and keeps the
starters on their toes.

Dolphins win


a big one


Baseball team
finally finds
the win column
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A brutal stretch to open the
season paid dividends Friday for
the Marathon High School base-
ball team.
The team defeated Miami
Country Day, 4-2, thanks .to, a


three-run fifth inning capped by a
two-run Yoniel Esquirol double.
The game was tied 1-1 after four.
The Dolphins struggled in
their first four games against
stacked district competition
before facing the Spartans.
"That kind of helped us get
prepared for this game," coach
Luis Leal said. "They were really
happy, as was I."

Dolphin girls fall to Carrollton


By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Playing matches on a dusty
clay court - on a windy day -
is apparently one heck of a
home-field advantage.
The Marathon High School
girls tennis team fell victim to
what coach Chris Bull said


DOLPHINS / From 20

Leal said he knew the teams
were evenly matched heading into
the game and that the opportunity
to win was there. Both feature ros-
ters filled with young and largely
inexperienced varsity players.
"That's why we schedule
them. We're usually at the same
competitive level each year,"
Leal said.
Senior pitchers Blaine
Connell and Toby Eigner com-
bined to shut the Spartans down.
Connell started and pitched 4.1
innings, allowing two runs on
just three hits. Eigner shut


were brutal conditions Friday,
losing their first match of the
season 2-5 to Carrollton
School. Carrollton is the only
team in district to use clay
courts.
"It was dry and it was windy,
so it was some crazy conditions


Country Day out in the final 2.2
innings.
"They both pitched a heck of a
game; the whole team, everyone
contributed," Leal said.
Marathon (1-4) scored first in
the second inning, but missed out
on a chance to break the game
open early after loading the bases
with no outs. Tyler Roussin hit a.
pop fly that was misplayed at
third base and allowed Jake
Sjursen to score the Dolphins
lone run.
Connell allowed a home run
in the bottom of the second to tie
the game at 1-1 and that's how it
remained until the Dolphins
scored three in the fifth - all


up there," Bull said, noting sus-
tained 15 to 20 mph winds dur-
ing the match. "You needed
sunglasses to not get clay in
your eyes when receiving on
the one side."
Bull said Carrollton is solid
throughout, but that the
Dolphin girls feel they'll fare
better on the hard courts used


with two outs.
Eigner walked to begin the
inning and reached second on a
passed ball. After outs by Sjursen
and Roussin, senior Jose Lopez
hit a single to score Eigner. Justin
Kometti reached on a bunt single
and Esquirol knocked them both
in with a deep double off the cen-
ter field fence.
Eigner allowed a run in the
bottom half of the inning on a
sacrifice fly, but shut the Spartans
down in the sixth and seventh for
the win.
Marathon' was scheduled to
play Miami Christian School
Tuesday, but results were not
available.


by them and other district
squads.
"At home we think we can
make a statement and beat
them," Bull said. The rematch
is scheduled for March 27.
The girls will look to bounce
back today in a scheduled 3
,p.m. match against St. Brendan
at the Marathon Community
Park. The boys team will play
as well.
It's the Dolphins' first home
match this season and Bull said
he hopes the community comes
out to support the school's
growing tennis program.

and we represent Marathon
well. We'd like the community

No. 1 Marisa Brossard
accounted for both the
Dolphins (4-1) wins Friday,
beating Rebecca Pol 8-4 in sin-

tice, concentrating on hitting out-
side pitches to the opposite field.
"I think the guys saw we were
struggling a little, and they went
back to what we had worked on
all last summer and fall," said
coach Miguel Menendez, who
added that the team had concen-
trated on driving the ball the
other way at practice last week.
"I don't think it was us trying
to pull everything," he said. "I


think it had more to do with not
applying what we had been
working on."
Of Ratcliff's clutch hit,
Menendez said, "I knew he was
going to come through. I would-
n't have wanted anyone else up. I
think that one at-bat will do won-
ders for him."
The Conchs will host South
Dade at 8 p.m. Friday and again
at 8 Saturday night.

with Frankie Ratcliff at the plate.
Ratcliff, eager to emerge from
a helmet-slinging uncharacteris-
tic slump, fouled off half a dozen
pitches before drilling a single to
left to score Josephson and
Rodriguez and make it 4-2.
Another run later scored on an
error, and Cole Harrison singled
in the inning's fifth.
Ratcliff came in from short-
stop to pitch a scoreless seventh
that ensured a victory for starter
Drew Rivera. The 6-2 victory -
accomplished with a rare combi-
nation of strong pitching, good
defense and productive hitting -
improved the Conchs' record to
3-5 overall and 1-2 in District 16,
4A.
After Friday night's loss, in
which the Conchs succumbed,
meekly to talented Pace pitcher
Eddie Pidermann, some of the
players decided to take things
into their own hands. They went
to Ratcliff's house for some
Saturday afternoon batting prac-.

comes the chance to compete
after two injury-slowed seasons.
"It really feels good to be back,"
she said. "I love just being out on

On the boys' side, Zack
Stroup scored a win at No. 1 for
Coral Shores, 8-2 over Justin
Tomita. Stroup, a junior, moved
to 3-3 for the season.


Key West took the rest of the

Baseball Eagles give game away


ICS is up 1-0,
but Champagnat
turns in a rout
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Island Christian's baseball
Eagles had one of South
Florida's best small-school
teams in their sights Friday,
but Champagnat Catholic put
on a late rush for a turnabout
11-1 win.
"It was a game we had
under control for four innings,
and were doing fine through
five," said ICS head coach
Tony Hammon.
"We played pretty but basi-_
cally took ourselves out of it,"
he said. "We can't be happy
about that."
Champagnat threw its top
pitcher at the Eagles but ICS
ace Phillip Izaguirre was up,
1-0, after four innings on his


team's Islamorada field.
The junior scattered four
hits, with five strikeouts and a
single walk.
Then Champagnat opened
the fifth with a bunt single and
a bunt sacrifice, then added
three singles to score twice
and take a 2-1 lead.
Island Christian answered
with a two-hit scoreless fifth.
"I told our guys, that's fine,
we've got the top of the order
coming up in the sixth,"
Hammon said.
Before then, Champagnat's
Lions laid into an ICS reliever
for a home run and three sin-
gles on the way to a six-run
inning. The visitors scored
three more in the seventh "but
mentally, we were out of it by
then," Hammon said.
Island Christian (1-3)
scored after Phillip Izaguirre
led off the first with a walk.
He advanced on passed ball.
Senior slugger Aaron


Izaguirre laced a shot down
the first-base Lion, and collid-
ed with the fielder at the bag.
He was out but his brother
scored.
"Aaron came out with a
jammed thumb that looked
pretty bad," Hammon said.
"He tried to play but couldn't.
Aaron got us our only run but
it was costly."
"It was an exciting game
for the most part, with bang-
bang plays that could have
gone either way," Hammon
said.
The Eagles ended with four
hits, but only one of the them
- a single by catcher Jordan
Izaguirre - came within the
power spot of the lineup.
Kailin Carter, Jim Rhyne
and Jon Cruciger contributed
the other three hits.
"We've still got Brito
Private coming- up but we
should be in a part of the
schedule where we can pick up
some wins," Hammon said.
Results from a Tuesday


game against -longtime rival
Princeton Christian were
pending at press time.
Coach returns
Joe Shadowens, who started
his coaching career at Island
Christian from 1983-89,
brings his Westminster
Academy team to Islamorada
on Thursday for his first game
against the Eagles.
"Coach Hammon and I have
talked about trying to set up a
game for a long time but this is
the first time it's worked out,"
Shadowens said. "It should be
a lot of fun because we have
similar coaching styles."
Shadowens. coached in
Atlanta for 16 years before
starting a new program in
Knoxville, Tenn., three years
ago.
He'd recently started work
as a full-time scout for the
Atlanta Braves when
Westminster Academy con-
tacted him. The Broward
school needed a political-sci-


ence teacher and baseball
coach, fast.
"For the last 18 years I've
thought about coming back to
South Florida but the lord had
other plans," he said. "Now
I'm back, almost full circle."
Westminster Academy, a
Class 2A team, has a 3-3 slate
in a rebuilding year for the
Lions.
"We're building from with-
in, working with guys who
have been with the program,"
Shadowens said. "We'll go as
far as our pitching carries us.
We're young but expect to get
better."
He said he looks forward to
seeing former ICS players and
students after the 4 p.m.
Thursday game.
