Forensic audit begins

School District
investigator
out for 'justice'
BY DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com r


A Miami-based accountant
and forensic investigator is
expected to begin reviewing
Monroe County School District
financial records today to deter-
mine what fraud exists and who
is responsible.
On Tuesday, the School
Board selected Richard Fechter
from Berkowitz Dick Pollack &
Brant CPA to look at any poten-
tially fraudulent credit card pur-
chases made by any of the dis-
trict's 93 cardholders.
The hire stems from allega-
tions that Monique Acevedo,
wife of Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, may have charged
thousands of dollars worth of
personal goods to her district
card. She resigned earlier this

Truman plan still


a long way off


Session set
to get updates
on waterfront
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

As the floundering economy
puts development in general on
hold, one neighborhood group is
trying to get plans for the Truman
Waterfront back on track.
"We've been aware that
there's been an undercurrent of
squabbling over plans ... and
there's not been much concrete


movement," Dennis Henize, a
director of the environmental
group Last Stand, says with no
pun intended.
It's with that in mind that
Last Stand hopes to give key
players in the waterfront's pro-
posed development a chance to
address public concerns and
offer a state of the waterfront, so
to speak.
On April 8 beginning at 5:30
p.m. at the Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center at the water-

By SUSAN COCKING
scocking@MiamiHerald.corn

Two more defendants pleaded
guilty Friday in the Keys federal
lobster poaching case known as
Operation: Freezer Burn - one
of the largest lobster poaching
cases ever seen in South Florida.
Rob Hammer, 45, of Miami
- a well-known charter fishing


guide in the Keys - and Sean
Reyngoudt, 25, an aspiring pro-
fessional kitesurfer from
Summerland Key, admitted to
one count, of conspiracy before
U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez
in Miami.
Both men remain free on bond
pending sentencing June 1. Each
could receive up to five years in
prison and fines of up to
$250,000.

Big Pine man ID'd as victim


Keynoter Staff

The Florida Highway Patrol
has identified a motorcyclist
killed in a Friday crash as Joel
Neurath, 24, of Big Pine Key.
Troopers say that around 3:45
p.m. that day, he was riding a
2001 Suzuki south' on Kyle
Boulevard, speeding, when he


hit a ditch and struck a power
pole. He died at the scene.
Meanwhile, a woman who
was struck by a motorcycle in
the Upper Keys at 1:25 a.m..
Friday remains hospitalized,
troopers say.
Nancy Riley, 64, was cross-
ing the southbound lane of U.S.
1 at mile marker 97 while Brett


Griffin, 38, of Key Largo was
riding a 1991 Honda south. The
bike hit Riley as she crossed the
road.
She was taken to Mariners
Hospital - and then to Ryder
Trauma Center in Miami. Griffin
also sustained injuries, though
the extent of them wasn't imme-
diately known.


Plans still to be firmed up


TRUMAN / From I

front, Last Stand hosts a panel of
stakeholders in- hopes of finding
out just where the various pro-
posals stand.
Panelists expected are Mayor
Morgan McPherson; Norma Jean
Sawyer, executive director of the
Bahama Conch Community
Land Trust; Bookie Henriquez
from the Florida Keys Assisted
Care Coalition; Ron Demes rep-
resenting the U.S: Navy; and
Doug Bradshaw on behalf of the
city's. Port. Operations
Department.
The Assisted Care Coalition
has a 99-year lease with the city
to develop a housing complex on
3.7 acres at the waterfront. Now,
coalition members are working


on trying to find financing for the
project.
"Obviously the financial envi-
ronment now is much different
than when we put this together,"
coalition board member Ed
Block told the Keynoter. But
"I'm not ready, to say the financ-
ing won't come together."
Plans call for. 135 mixed-
income units. Forty units will be
reserved for people who require
assisted care and the other 95
will be independent living units.
Sizes will range from between
400 square feet for an assisted-
living unit and up to 1,200 square
feet for a two-bedroom, two-bath
independent-living unit. When
conceived, sales prices for the
larger units were pegged from
$200,000 to $1.5 million and the
smaller units were to cost from


Two more admit guilt


LOBSTER / From 1

admitted helping co-defendant
David Dreifort of Cudjoe Key,
who is .accused of harvesting lob-
sters illegally last summer from
artificial structures called casitas,
out of season in the waters of the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary.
The lobsters collected from
the casitas were hidden in under-
water cages, then transferred by
boat to Cudjoe Key to be stored
for sale when lobster season
opened last Aug. 6.
Hammer admitted participat-
ing in the illegal harvest of more
than 1,100 lobsters worth more
than $59,000.
Reyngoudt admitted to being
paid in cash for helping Dreifort
harvest an unknown number of
illegal lobsters.
Hammer and Reyngoudt join
co-defendant John Niles of


LaBelle in entering guilty pleas
in the case. He faces the same
penalties as Hammer and
Reyngoudt and is set for sentenc-
ing on April 1.
Still outstanding are the cases
against Dreifort and his wife
Denise, and Key West charter
boat captain Mike Delph.
The six were arrested on
opening day of lobster season last
August after federal agents
watched them place artificial
habitats in the water, then dive
down with scuba gear to harvest
lobsters from the sites. '
Authorities seized nearly
1,500 pounds of wrung lobster
tail when they arrested Dreifort.
Federal agents seized the 28-
foot Whitewater used for diving,
along with a 21-foot Wahoo boat,
an 18-foot Action Craft boat, a
2004 Ford Excursion, a 2002
Ford pickup and a 2003 Chevy
Suburban.


$1,000 to $4,900 to rent monthly.
The projected cost for the
entire complex is $50 million.
Aside from financing, another
roadblock is zoning.
Part of the Assisted Care
Coalition's proposed building
falls into an area zoned for park
space, and it will require a city
comprehensive plan amendment
to be changed. Block said it's
hard to aggressively pursue
financing when the actual site
requires a cavalcade of local and
state government approval.
"We've had RFPs [requests
for proposals] ready to go for
months," Block said. "The city
of Key West is years behind in
providing the DCA [Department
of Community Affairs] with the
comprehensive plan. We don't
have any options."
The city's Planning Depart-
ment is in the process of updating
and revising the city's comprehen-
sive plan, which was penned in
1993 and hasn't been updated
since.
Planning Director Amy
Kimball-Murley has said the
revision process will take well
over a year and each step requires
oversight and approval from
DCA because Key West is desig-
nated an Area of Critical State
Concern.
Meanwhile, the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust is
negotiating a lease agreement
with the city to build a mixed-use
complex on a little more than six
acres of the waterfront at a price
of $1 per year for 99 years.
Plans call for 60 to 70 reSi-
dential apartments starting at
around 875 square feet and rang-
ing in monthly rent from $875 to
$1,250. Mixed with apartments
will be retail shops, open-air fish
and vegetable markets, artist stu-
dios and even a Bahamian cultur-
al museum.
Plans also call for a city-
owned marina at the waterfront.

SCHOOL BOARD / From 1
month from her job overseeing
adult education for the district.
The board chose not to select
for its forensic work Miami
accountant Manuel Garcia, who
was brought to the board by
Chairman Andy Griffiths. Two
weeks ago, Griffiths' colleagues
tasked him with researching and
recommending a forensic auditor.
The board was expected to
approve, paying Fechter an initial
$5,000 to look at financial records
and produce a detailed plan, scope
of service and cost estimate for his
investigation. That vote occurred
after press time Tuesday.
Fechter said - the most-
involved case in his 15-year
career was an investigation of a
Florida county attorney's office,
which included findings of
employees not being paid for
work and a total of about
$350,000 in fraud.
He said the investigation cost
that county roughly $100,000.
"I'm sensitive to all the issues
involved," Fechter told the board.
"We want to find the people who
are at fault and bring them to
justice.
"At the same time, you have
very good and very capable peo-
ple working here, and through no
fault of their own they have been
implicated in this."
Board members said one of
Fechter's first priorities would be
to identify employees who
appeared to have acted appropri-
ately with school purchasing to
clear any suspicion around them,
and then focus the investigation
on suspected fraud.
As of now, those suspicions


point mostly
to Acevedo,
. r who resigned
* March 3 after
it was learned
she violated
district policy
by making
personal pur-
FECHTER chases with
her district
Bank of America Visa card.
Financial records examined by
the Keynoter show tens of thou-
sands of dollars in purchases of
DVDs, clothing, furniture and
other seemingly personal items
bought with Acevedo's credit card
as well as with purchase orders.
Those items were reported to
the district as "textbooks" and
"supplies" for programs she
oversaw. Adult Education pro-
grams include literacy classes,
GED preparation, English for
speakers of other languages, cos-
metology and others courses.
Among the stores where she
charged goods were Bed and Bath,
Pier 1 Imports, Publix, Winn-
Dixie and a furniture store. She
also was active on Amazon.com.
It also came out last week that
tens of thousands more could be
missing from a Key West High
School fundraising account and
from tuition fees paid by cosme-
tology students - funds man-
aged by Monique Acevedo..
Fechter.said his investigation
would include extensive inter-
views with employees to deter-
mine breakdowns in administra-
tion oversight.
"It's all with the mindset that
this is a forensic investigation,
and ultimately someone might
have to testify in a court of law
[about] our findings," he said.

concerned about it. They cleared
her of almost everything."
The violation alleged by Key
West resident Paul Caruso, and
for which the Election
Commission found there is prob-
able cause to uphold, centers on
the "VoteDixie.com" Web site
created during the campaign.
Spehar was running against Kim
Wigington, who went on to win
the general election in November.
The five-page site, now
defunct, was identified as an
independent contribution backed
by Key West residents Henry and
Jan Nicowski.
Election Commission investi-
gator Cedric Oliver reported the
electronic site essentially was
created by White's firm, National
Campaign Supply Co., with
financial contributions from the
Nicowskis.
Spehar told Oliver she didn't
know about the site. until it was
online, the investigation found.
The site basically reprinted her
campaign brochure material and
asked for donations.
No donations were received
through the site, Oliver wrote.


Four of the site pages identi-
fied it as funded by the
Nicowskis, "independent of any
candidate."
A disclaimer on the donation
page said that page was funded
by the Spehar campaign.
The elections agency ruled
that since Spehar acknowledged
White as an adviser, and White
had been active in creating the
site with Spehar's apparent
approval, the site was improperly
labeled as an "independent" con-
tribution.
Another complaint filed by
Caruso suggested an aide in
Spehar's county office may have
done campaign work on county
time.
Spehar and the aide, Les
Boatright, told the investigator
they specifically discussed the
need for Boattight to avoid cam-
paign work at the office.
"Spehar's office number was
briefly listed on the campaign
Web site under contact informa-
tion before being changed. The
Election Commission staff said
that did not constitute a legal vio-
lation, and had no cause to pursue
the allegation.

A former Monroe County
commissioner could face state
election-law fines because of a
botched Web site disclaimer,
according to Florida Election
Commission staff.
However, the same Election
Commission investigation of for-
mer Commissioner Dixie Spehar
found no grounds to pursue alle-
gations of improperly using
county staff on campaign work.
Spehar has the right to seek a
hearing on the alleged violation
involving the Web site, or can
enter a consent agreement that
could involve a fine of up to
$1,000.
Attempts by the Keynoter to

Spehar lost the August 2008

Growth no longer

fuels our economy

Gazing into crystal balls can cause eye strain.
Witness Monday's release of Florida's revised population
forecast. The alarming headline: The Sunshine State's popula-
tion growth has "plunged to [its] lowest level in 60 years.",
That was followed by an equally alarming notation that in
some Florida counties, the population is "actually shrinking."
Hello! The Keys have been on that cutting edge for nearly a
decade.
From 2000 to 2006, Monroe County lost more than 5,000
people - a population decline of 6 percent. And mind you, this
came as other parts of the state were still in boom times and
before the economic fallout of the banking crisis, jump in bank-
ruptcy filings and widespread layoffs that have dominated the
news for months.
Economists at the University of Florida's Bureau of Economic
and Business Research released their latest findings Monday.
Here's part of what they said: "The collapse of the housing
market and the lingering effects of what has been the worst
economic crisis since the Great Depression have put a real
crimp on migration and are likely .to keep Florida's population
growth at very low levels for the next. few years."
In fact, the last time Florida experienced such a small popu-
lation increase came right after World War II, when "large
numbers of military personnel who temporarily moved to
Florida during World War II returned to their home states."
Key West experienced that in the early 1950s, then again in
the early 1970s, when the Navy moved fleet operations to
Jacksonville.
An independent study of Monroe County's population trends,
conducted by Florida International University, shows Key West
has lost 12 percent of its households since the 2000 census.
Most of that came as an aftermath of Hurricane Wilma's
floods in-2005, but the high cost of housing and low-paying
service jobs contributed to the exodus.
Since 2000, an influx of older and wealthier residents tem-
porarily boosted per capital income in the city by 50 percent -
twice the level experienced in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach counties.
But like most riches borne of a real estate bubble, the gravy
train has ended - for now.
Population growth won't restart Florida's economic engine
anytime soon. So we better focus on quality-of-life issues and
hang on to the folks we have now.
It won't be easy. But it doesn't take a crystal ball to see what
happens if we don't.

NAS Key West needs to be supported, not criticized


EDITOR:
I have to say I am disappointed but not sur-
prised that the county commissioners are trying "
to destroy a program designed t6 train our young
military pilots here in Key West as well as
employ over 100 of our nation's veterans.
The program's daily mission is provide com-
bat training and to support fleet replacement
squadrons and fleet activities. These F/A-18 hor-
nets are used to train pilots who will end up in
Iraq and Afghanistan fighting for our freedom.
The majority of the mechanics who work on
these planes and other support personnel are
retired military and many are still in the reserves
and continue to serve our country. Key West was
chosen as one of the sites for this important train-
ing program due to the ideal flying conditions
and vast unrestricted air space.
Instead of looking at the negative aspect of this
program, stop and consider the positive. This pro-
gram trains pilots - our sons, daughters, fathers
and mothers serving our country - and at the same
time employs those who have already served, our
veterans, who are responsible for the maintenance
of the aircraft and ground support of the program.
I'm sure the people aboard US Airways Flight
1549 were glad their pilot had many training hours.
On Jan. 18, 1918, the first class of student avi-
ators arrived for training. Naval Air Station Key
West continues to be utilized by active and

is obvious to all
EDITOR:
Re: The story "Call him RoboCroc":
In the midst of stories featuring man's more
despicable traits of greed, corruption, theft and
even stealing from nuns, convents, orphanages
and children's hospitals, it behooves us to rec-
ognize an individual who demonstrates that the
human animal is still capable of wondrous acts
of skill, kindness and compassion.
Dr. Doug Mader, co-owner of the
Marathon Veterinary Hospital, with his equal-
ly compassionate wife Dr. Gerry, simply did
not accept the fact a crocodile had to die
because of man's inability to avoid hitting a
10-foot animal, and crushed its skull. One -
only has to look at the incredible amount of
work done (I can't imagine there is a fortune
to be made in repairing crocs). Approximately
40 surgical screws were installed in at least
four metal plates. That's just on the exterior
of the animal.
No one will ever mistake a croc for a
warm fuzzy Koala bear type of species, but
perhaps that makes Mader's efforts all the
more human and compassionate. It makes no
difference to Mader whether reptile or mam-
mal; it's a living creature that deserves a shot
at life if possible.
Whether or not RoboCroc makes it, one
Mader cancels out a dozen Madoffs on the
balance sheet of humanity. We are very proud
he made this island chain his home.

here before most of us and most likely will be
here when we are gone.
Could it be the developers are the complainers
and once again it's all about what the developers
want and their land development deals?
Where is our responsibility? We talk about our
failing economy and unemployment rates. Key
West cannot continue to rely primarily on the
tourist industry. Many of our citizens and com-
munity groups are trying to come up with alterna-
tive means of supporting our economy. We can.
start by appreciating what we have and support
those willing to live, work here and yes, spend
their money.
But then again, not too many of our county
commissioners attend the Veteran's Day parade,
the annual Wounded Warriors ride or other events
and programs supporting our veterans either.

Jets represent freedom

EDITOR:
In the controversy over noise from mili-
tary jets flying out of Naval Air Station
Key West, I agree with Executive Director
Don Demes when he told the commission-
ers, "We appreciate your concern but must
continue normal flight operations" out of
the Boca Chica air station.
When I told a good friend of mine, a
former U.S. Navy commander (now
retired) who had been stationed at the air
base while on active duty, about the contro-
versy over the sounds coming from train-
ing missions from the F/A 18 fighter jets
taking off and landing at the base, he had
this reply: "Tell the commissioners and the
residents of Key West this for me: What
they hear is the sound of freedom."
I agree.

Vandals strike New Town


Auto windows
found busted
over weekend
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

If you live in a certain area of
New Town Key West, you might
, want to keep your eyes open for
vandals.
Over the weekend, there were
five reports of broken car win-
dows and one report of property
damage in the same area of New
Town. The reports of broken car
windows came from Kennedy
Drive and Duck Avenue, main
roads in a large residential area of
Key West.
In each of the cases, the front
passenger side window was
smashed out but none of the car
owners reported anything miss-
ing from their vehicles.


The calls break down as fol-
lows:
* Saturday morning at 1001
Kennedy Drive, the softball field.
* Saturday just before noon at
1505 Kennedy Drive, police
responded to two calls.
* Saturday around 5:30 p.m.
at 3215 Duck Ave., Stadium
Apartments.
* -Sunday around noon at
3436 Duck Ave., Poinciana Plaza.
The call about property dam-
age - a tree was vandalized -
came Saturday morning at 3838
Flagler Ave.
A witness to the auto break-in
in Poinciana Plaza was able to
give a vague description of the
suspects.
According to police reports,
he said he saw three young men
break the window of a black Jeep.
After breaking the window, the
three walked away briefly and


then returned to the SUV. Then,
the witness says, he saw one of
the men lean into the Jeep.
through the window and dig
around the glove box and center
console area.
The three young men report-
edly were wearing dark clothing
with long sleeves.


. As for the tree, George Noel
told police that sometime on
Saturday in the early evening,
someone broke eight branches off
a rare tree in his front yard. Noel
was unable to provide a descrip-
tion of the suspects but said that
similar things have happened on
his property before.

Work on
Seven Mile
is rescheduled
Keynoter Staff

State transportation officials
have changed their schedule of
Seven Mile Bridge closures'.
Initially, the bridge was
planned for closures' March 23
and April 6. But now, the span
will instead close from 8 p.m.
to midnight April 6 and April
20.
State Department of
Transportation contractors are
rehabilitating several tendons


holding the Middle Keys
bridge together.
DOT consultant Roland
Rodriguez, of Metric Engineer-
ing, said on the night of the
first closure,. March 18, the
work went well but took longer
than expected.
"We worked from
Wednesday night to Friday
morning and in order for the
contractor to have his work-
force ready to go, on the 23rd
wasn't possible," he said.
"We're going to meet this week
and see where we can shorten
certain aspects of the opera-
tion."


Traffic on the bridge was
supposed to open back up to,
normal flow at 6 a.m. March
19, but was supervised until 11
p.m. that evening. Two vehi-
cles weighing more than six
tons cannot cross the work area
at the same time; vehicles of
that kind will be allowed to
cross .one at a time with 300-
foot spacing.
The Seven Mile Bridge is
segmental, with a system of six
stranded metal tendons holding
each portion of the bridge in
place. Tendons in three of the
135-foot segments need replac-
ing, and that is what contractor
The Freyssinet Group will be
doing.
After midnight each night of
the closures, the bridge will
reopen to traffic, with weight
restrictions closely monitored
by workers and deputies.
The bridge is scheduled to

reopen to normal traffic at 6
a.mi. the morning following the
nighttime closures.
For 6ach of the closures,
traffic at the north end of the
bridge will be stopped at mile
marker 47, near Knights Key,
and on the south end
at Veteran's Park at mile
marker 39.9.

Key Largo man charged
with drowning possum

A Key Largo man has been
charged with animal cruelty after

the possum at 3 p.m. Sunday at a
boat ramp at mile marker 94.8.

The dead animal was found
where she said it was and the trap,
still wet, was found in the back of

City to build


dog park itself


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A dog park at the Field of
Dreams Children's Rotary Park
in Marathon is inching closer to
reality.
The Marathon City Council
has granted a groupoof dog lovers
the right to build on a roughly
one-acre unused parcel at the front
of the Rotary Park in January.
Now the group, is ready to put
fundraising plans into action.
Chairwoman Mary Stella said
the loose coalition of dog owners
will forgo pursuing 501(c)3 non-
profit status because donations
made ,through the city of
Marathon are automatically tax
deductible. A plan to use the same
arrangement with local shelter
Stand Up For Animals fell
through.
. "There was some questions as
to whether that was the best
thing" for Stand Up For Animals,
Stella said.
City Manager Clyde Burnett is
expected to update the council on
the latest developments at
Tuesday's City Council meeting,
scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center.
The city "would do the actual
building of the park, so they can


oversee the construction," Stella
said. "We can function to pro-
vide the funds."
The city's financial commit-
ment is minimal, since the group,
a loose consortium of dog own-
ers, has pledged to raise whatev-
er money is necessary to build a
fence and amenities. Stella said
group members have "tons of
ideas" ready to go once the
arrangement with the city is-
settled.
The Rotary Park is at U.S. 1
and 75th Street.
Last known estimates of start-
up costs were $15,600: $14,000
for fencing, $1,000 for a rules
sign and $600 for a waste recep-
tacle.

Judgment depletes reserves


City must pay
full $8 million
by April 20
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The city of Key West settled
the Duck Tours lawsuit for $8
million last week and now, the
question is where's the money
going to come from and how
can a similar situation be
avoided in the future.
According to city officials,


the multimillion-dollar payout
will come from the city's gen-
eral fund reserve, which is now
$12 million.
When it's not being used to
settle lawsuits, the city's
reserve fund acts as a worst-
case-scenario operating budg-
et. With $12 million in the
bank, the city theoretically
could keep operating for 120
days.
That's $100,000 per day.
Minus the $8 million settle-
ment, the reserve fund will be

down to $4 million. The pay-
ment is due in full on or before
April 20, so once that happens,
the city's reserve operating
budget will equate to just 40
days, according to Assistant
City Manager Mark Finigan.
That could be a problem if
something like a natural disas-
ter strikes and big influxes of
cash are needed immediately.
As far as fending off future
lawsuits of a similar nature,
there are still questions.
When the City Commission
on Friday approved the Duck
Tours settlement,
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
questioned City Attorney
Shawn Smith about how the
city can prevent future lawsuits
like this.
Smith assured the commis-
sion that there is no chance of
future litigation specifically
from Duck Tours.
According to Smith, the
municipal ordinance that bars
shuttle or sightseeing operators
from setting up shop within
1,000 feet of, Historic Tours of
America operations such as
ticket kiosks and depots is off
the books.
That's the ordinance that led
to the city being found liable
for illegally running Duck
Tours out of business in the
mid-1990s, by not allowing
fair access to the Old Town
tourist market.
In 2005, when the city was
found liable for $13 million in
damages following a trial in
Monroe County Circuit Court,
a judge also ruled that the ordi-
nance was void. That ruling
still stands, Smith said.
Still, like Kolhage,
Commissioner Teri Johnston
expressed concern about future
lawsuits.
"If we are still vulnerable,
we need to close that up," she
said. "It's something we need
to get back to."
Friday's settlement - the
original $13 million damage
award was tossed - came after
a week of testimony before a
Circuit Court jury, which was
charged with determining how
much Duck Tours .was worth
when it closed up in 1996.
Duck Tours claimed the
business was worth $13.5 mil-
lion; with annual interest
accrued, and legal fees, the city
was looking at a potential pay-
out of $30.6 million.

The Boater's World store at 5001 Overseas Highway in Marathon will close in the next few
months, as parent company Ritz Camera seeks to recoup $40 million in cash from liquidation
of the chain's 120-plus stores. The store's mural was painted just two years ago by Marathon
native Yoslan O'Farrill.


Boater's World closing


Parent company
liquidating stores,
Keys included
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

The three Boater's World
stores in the Keys will close
within the next couple of
months as their parent company
sells off inventory to satisfy
creditors.
Owner Ritz Camera Centers
Inc. was given permission
Thursday to conduct going-out-
of-business sales at the more
than 120 Boater's World stores,
according to the Philadelphia
Inquirer.
The three stores in the Keys
are in Key Largo, Marathon and
Key West. They employ 22 peo-
ple.
Maryland-based Ritz filed
for bankruptcy protection in
federal court in February.
Liquidator Gordon Brother
Group LLC will handle the
sales, the Inquirer reported.
Key Largo store manager
Ronnie Bleser said he didn't get
word of the impending closure
until Friday, but employees
knew it was coming.
Crews showed up Friday
afternoon .and started putting up


the going-out-of-business signs
at the 105660 Overseas
Highway. store. The sale signs
tout 10 percent to 30 percent
*off.
The eventual closure of the
Key Largo store will put three
full-time and six part-time
employees out of work, Bleser
said.
The schedule "is in the hands
of the liquidators," said Bleser,
who planned to meet with them
Tuesday.
"We're still here.- that's all
we know right now," said the
manager, who's been. at the
store for five years.
Jackie Collins is manager of
the Marathon store at 5001
Overseas Highway. It's in a
standalone building owned by
Ritz - unlike the Key Largo
store, which is in leased space..
The Marathon store features
a marine life mural that covers
the, building's northern wall
completed in 2007 by Marathon
native Yoslan O'Farrill.
"We don't know when we're
closing - probably in a few
months," Collins said when
reached Friday afternoon, short-
ly after the sale signs went up.
Collins said the store has one
full-time and five part-time
employees.


The closure is an unfortunate
fact of life in today's economy,
Collins said, pointing out that
the store had already trimmed
staff and hours because of slow-
er sales.
Bloomberg News reports
that Gordon Brothers won an
auction for the right to conduct
the going-out-of business sales
by guaranteeing that Ritz would
collect at least 90 percent of the
value of the goods sold during
the liquidation.
Ritz attorney Irving Walker
told the bankruptcy judge in
Wilmington, Del., that it should
collect $40 million from the
sales, according to Bloomberg.
"They'd hinted at [the clo-
sure], but when they showed up
with the signs, that's when we
knew for sure," said Andy
Fortin, manager of the Key
West store.
The Key West store at 3022
N. Roosevelt Blvd. has five
full-time and two part-time
employees, Fortin said.
The timeframe for closure
Fortin has been given is
between June 1 and 30, but
details are still scarce, he said.
The timing couldn't be
worse, Fortin added, because his
wife was also recently laid off.
"There are so many jobs out
there right now," he said wryly.

Lady Fins roll over Victors


Team close
to returning
to..500 mark
BY RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Megan Gardner pitched a
complete game one-hitter Friday
as the Marathon High School
softball team made quick work
of the Miami Christian Victors.
The Dolphins put the game
out of reach early with nine runs
in the first inning and another six
in the second, earning a mercy-
rule 17-2 victory.
"The other team had a young
pitcher that was struggling. We
had 12 walks in five innings,"
coach Andrea Murphy said.
"When we got something to hit,
we did, but we got a lot of walks
and moved up on passed balls."


Shelby Kuck was 2-for-4 at
the plate with two RBI and
Michelle Sardina was 2-for-2
with an RBI and two walks.
Sardina and Alyssa Perry each
scored three runs.
At 8-9, the Dolphins have
rebounded well from an early-
season slump. Murphy said the
entire lineup has been contribut-
ing offensively lately and the
team's defense is markedly
improved.
Senior Morgan Longstreth
started off the bottom of the first
with a walk, stole second and
moved to third on a passed ball.
Kuck singled her home and
-advanced to third on a steal and
passed ball. She was doubled
home by Samantha Rodamer to
make it 2-0.
Michelle Sardina later dou-
bled home Kelley Struyf to

and after today, it feels great to
be back where we are accus-
tomed to being," said Bulldog
head coach Jack Bauerle. "To
get second at NCAAs is no

The University of California
(411.5 points) won the national
title.
Miller won two Florida high-
school titles while swimming for
Coral Shores in 2005.
She qualified for the NCAA

Georgia, and last year earned a
spot at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
She is the daughter of Jim and
Susan Miller of Big Pine Key.
In an interview with a
Georgia sports-information
staffer, Miller was asked about


her goals after graduation.
"Find a job somewhere warm
and be by the ocean," she
replied. "I want to be able to find
a new passion and dedicate
myself to it as I have done my
whole life with swimming. Most
likely, learn to surf."

Rivera was the winning pitcher,
although he walked five batters.
He was relieved by P.J.
Arencibia, who allowed a run
and two hits the rest of the way.
"He just knows how to pitch,"
Menendez. said of Arencibia, a
senior who has become the
team's most dependable reliever.
"He doesn't have the greatest
fastball but he throws strikes and
has a great change-up.'He also is
throwing a much better breaking
ball this year."
. On Saturday night, the
Conchs scored nine runs in the
fourth inning and defeated
Reagan, 13-6, in a game called
in the fifth because of rain. Third
baseman Charlie Walker-Yhap
had two hits, including a two-run
homer. Harrison and Gandolfo
also had two hits to continue
their hot streaks.
Key West, which played at
Mater Academy late Tuesday,
will play at Monsignor Pace at 7
p.m. Friday and at Westland
Hialeah at 1 p.m. Saturday

Tough schedule awaits


RYAN/ From 14

academic reputation.
And as Dolphins coach Lance
Martin pointed out, Ryan will
still be playing big-time college
football against top-notch com-
petition on national television
each week.
The visit to Vanderbilt's
Nashville, Tenn., campus includ-
ed a tour of the grounds, lunch
with coaches and players and
watching the Commodores' "pro
day," where potential National
Football League players from this
year's team try out. Oh, and
wearing a New York Giants
scout's Super Bowl ring wasn't


bad either, Ryan said.
Football wasn't even a consid-
eration for Ryan early in his prep
career. Martin said he pushed him
to play and "wouldn't take no for
an answer."
"You could see by the way he
was growing that baseball was
not going to be his sport," Martin
said.
"I came into playing football
and I just played because every-
one was begging me to play. I
never thought any of this would
ever happen to me, but it is and
it's great," Ryan said.
Ryan's first year playing foot-
ball was as a sophomore and
Martin said he dominated from
day one. By the start of his junior


season, Martin knew full well the
opposition's offensive game plan
would be to run away from
Ryan's side of the line.
Ryan flirted with the idea of
playing basketball and was. on the
baseball team-the past two years,
but heeded Martin's advice to
concentrate solely on weightlift-
ing this winter. He's now a solid
240 pounds and plans to play at
around 250 at Vanderbilt.
He better be in the best shape
of his life - the Commodores'
2010-11 schedule so far features
matchups against LSU, Georgia,
Florida and Tennessee, among
other high-end Division I pro-
grams.


Hurricanes stand at 11-2


CORAL SHORES / From 14

Gulliver clash with a 19-2 win
Monday win at Archbishop
Curley. Coral Shores banged
out 16 hits in the five-inning
game, including two triples and
a single from junior shortstop
Fabian Placencia.
The win keeps Coral Shores
perfect, at 9-0 among South
Florida Baseball Conference
opponents. With only one
league game remaining, the
Canes will enter the conference
tournament with the top seed as


the regular-season champion.
The conference tournament
begins with a semifinal round
April 20 at Miami Country
'Day.
LaDarius Sanders got the
pitching win over Curley, limit-
ing the Knights to just four hits
and two runs in four innings.
Chad White pitched the fifth
inning.
Jake Lane tripled and sin-
gled, and Bobby DePaula
added two hits for the Canes.
The Canes play at
Archbishop. Carroll on Friday.
Then on Monday, the lights go


on for the first time at Coral
Shores' home field at Founders
Park. A dedication ceremony
takes place before the opening
pitch at 7 p.m. Palmer Trinity is
the visiting team.

Fish caught during the

Fishing Tournament, which

More than 40 species of
fish are targeted during the
multi-month, event.


Yellowtails


But pretty soon,
the dolphin will
arrive in droves

Yellowtail, anyone?
Fishing on the oceanside of
the islands has been dominated
by this species for several weeks
now. It's not just the numbers of
them, but their sizes. There are
very large specimens being
caught with relative ease by
anglers that admittedly don't
know a whole lot about targeting
these normally finicky fish.
In the past week, however,
they have been living up to that.
There have been locations that
have been quite good but for the
most part, it's been a matter of the
time of day. Some mornings, they
have been right on and on other
days, it has been the late after-
noon when they turned on. The
lack of current along the edge has
been one of the biggest problems
in many areas.
One thing about the yellowtail
fishing is that it's not limited to
the outer reef line - no sir! Most
of the big fish have been taken in
45 or more feet of water along the
drop-off, yet plenty of them are in
numerous locations on the ocean-
side of the islands.
A recent stop at a coral patch
just off Bahia Honda in 9 feet of
water produced 24 yellowtail in
the 14-inch-plus range in only a
few hours; the anglers didn't
want to venture out in their small
boat all the way to the reef.
Other stories like that abound
this week in areas off Duck Key
near the inside edge of Hawk
Channel all the way through Big
Pine Key hnd further west. It is
common to have good yellowtail
fishing this time or year but it is
