College board



gives prez $42 K


Housing fund runs
dry, so public
money is tapped
By SEAN KINNEY

Florida' Keys Community
College trustees :on Tuesday
approved a $42,000 annual hous-
ing stipend for college President
Jill Landesberg-Boyle.
Previously, the stipend was
paid by a private donor and fun-
neled through the college's
fundraising organization to


Landesberg-

lord.
Now, thec

Board of
Trustees opted

LANDSBERG-BOYLE $3,500 month-
ly out of the
college's budget.
Board Chairman Ed Scales
told the Keynoter that because
housing in the Keys is so expen-
sive, the most expensive in the


state in fact, a housing stipend
component of a contract is inte-
gral to attract and keep qualified
presidents.
Scales also said the college's
fundraising organization has as
No. 1 on its wish list the donation
of a permanent home for whoev-
er serves as college president.
Landesberg-Boyle's three-
year contract, which began in
August 2007, includes a
$150,000 base salary, $20,000 for
relocation costs from
Pennsylvania and the housing
stipend. The college also agreed

County lobbies,
lawmakers listen,
meetings planned
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A Monroe County contingent
found much sympathy - yet lit-
tle funding - for its central
sewer construction during a lob-
bying trip this week to
Tallahassee.
But they did wrangle a' com-
mitment for a meeting April 16
with stakeholders from key state
agencies to discuss pushing back
the state-mandated July 1, 2010,
deadline to meet advanced waste-
water standards.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said at least one proposal is to ask
the state to move the deadline to
2015.
The meeting to be held in Key
West will include the state
departments of Environmental
Protection, Health and Com-
munity Affairs, among others.
The goal is to delay the dead-
line for package-plant owners and
residential areas to comply with
state standards, Murphy said. She
said the meeting isn't open to the
public - it's a staff-level meeting.
- and that Mayor George
Neugent will likely be the com-
mission's lone representative.
"It was just getting all jum-
bled up. They're going to get
together in one room and hash
this out. Their experts will figure
out a way to get this done with a
minimum of hurt," Murphy said.
Also in the Tallahassee meet-
ings, Neugent raised the possibil-
ity of adding a penny to the local-
option sales tax to help fund
wastewater projects in the Keys.

Missouri firm
invited to make
personal pitch
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Florida Keys Community
College is proceeding, slowly,
with plans to build a 100-bed
dormitory on its Stock Island
campus.
Requests for proposals
were sent out last year and
three companies responded:
Student Suites out of Blue
Springs, Mo.; Wood Partners
-from Boca Raton; and
Collegiate Development out of
Irving, Texas.
On Friday, members of the
Island Living Campus
Foundation, a direct support
organization charged with
fleshing out the dorm project,
decided to ask-Student Suites
representatives to come in to
make a presentation.
Student Suites was the only
one of the three firms to attach
a dollar figured to its propos-
al. The firm wants $8.34 mil-
lion to construct, manage and
finance the proposed 30,000-
square-foot building.
That's about $276 per
square foot. Island Living

U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen fields questions from Florida Keys
Community College students Friday and gives a lecture in-
American politics.


Campus Foundation member
Barry Barosso described that
cost as "outrageous."
Gov. Charlie Crist
approved FKCC's plans for a
dorm last summer. The dorm
can be built as high as 45 feet


- 10 feet higher than Key
West code allows. The dorm is
also excluded from state-man-
dated rate-of-growth require-
ments that tie development
and density to hurricane evac-
uation clearance times.


Scales: Stipend justified


COLLEGE / From I

to provide Boyle with a car for
business use.
Her benefit package adds
another $37,500 a year,
according'to estimates provid-
ed by the college's- Finance
Department.
With the housing stipend,
that adds up to a total compen-
sation package of nearly
$230,000 a year'
When the Keynoter asked
Landensberg-Boyle about the
specific dollar amounts
attached to her contract, she
deferred to college attorney
Buck Devane. Devane could
not be reached for comment.
Asked if the housing
stipend is necessary for her to
remain in the Keys as college
president,.Boyle .said if it were.
remioveda "It. would ' finda-


mentally alter the terms of my
employment."
Asked what that means,
Boyle said, "It would funda-
mentally alter the terms of my
employment to something
other than what I agreed to."
Landesberg-Boyle's base
salary is listed at $159,000 on
records filed with Florida's
Department of Education. The
only base salaries lower than
that among the state's 28 com-
munity college presidents, are
at North Florida and Lake
Sumter community colleges.
For comparison, Key West
City Manager Jim Scholl, who
oversees a city staff of 230
and a $15 million budget, is
paid a base salary of $180,000
per year.
Scholl doesn't get a hous-
ing stipend and does not use a

Covered by the 'city s health


insurance policy.
School does get the benefit
of a pension, paid vacation
and sick days and the like,
which amounts to between
$28,000 and $30,000 per year.
Scholl's compensation pack-
age tops out around $210,000
per year.
Scales said Landesberg's
housing stipend coming from
public coffers is justified due
in large part to FKCC's enroll-
ment growth.
At the end of the fall
semester last year, a head
count showed 2,036 students,
or 402 full-time equivalent
students (most FKCC students
attend -part-time). The same
benchmark from 2007 yielded
a headcount at 1,591 and a
full-time equivalency of 298.
Landesberg-Boyle said the
,current enrollment, growth is
double the state average.

Funds 'off the table'


TALLAHASSEE / From I

Several commissioners, along
with- Administrator Roman
Gastesi and Growth
Management Director Drew
Trivette, met with numerous leg-
islators and agencies in search of
funding for sewers - which
nearly everyone agrees will not
be complete by the.2010 dead-
line.
"We certainly didn't bring
home any money because it isn't
there," Murphy said. "But we did
meet with a lot of people who
know what our problem is, but
they need it put in front of them
sometimes."
Facing the 2010 deadline,
package-plant owners were in
.danger of paying twice to meet
state standards.
Their -concerns were height-
ened after receiving letters sent
by DEP indicating that plant
owners must comply with the
deadline. That would require
expensive upgrades, plant opera-
tors said, noting they would be
forced to pay again once the cen-
tral sewer system in their area is
complete.
"A consent agreement
[would] allow these package-
plant owners to essentially be
protected if the county continues
to move forward in a steady,
uninterrupted manner," Nuegent
said. "They will not be required
to upgrade until they can tie in to
a central sewer system."
Murphy said hookup fees to
the county's sewer system may
be as high as $22,000, a figure
she guesses would likely drive at
least one-fifth of the Keys popu-
lation elsewhere.
"People ask, What is the value

of .you going to Tallahassee? The
value is to keep it fresh in their
minds that we do have problems
and we need their help," Murphy
said.
Neugent said the possibility of
receiving the first of four $50
million bond installments
approved. by the Florida
Legislature for Keys sewers last
year is "off the table."
"That's not going to happen,"
he said.
But Neugent said legislators
he met with were receptive to his
plan for a one-penny sales tax as
a way to generate revenue to
fund sewer construction.
"We're working on pushing
the timeline out to a more achiev-
able and attainable date, which
will allow us to work on addi-
tional funding," he said. "We'll
try to convince the decision mak-
ers in the Legislature to allow us
to create a revenue stream to pro-
vide money for the implementa-
tion of the wastewater infrastruc-
ture."

FEMA meeting set
Meanwhile, Neugent said the
county was able to schedule an
April 28 meeting with the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
to discuss long-standing issues
with downstairs enclosures.
FEMA has essentially
declared that downstairs enclo-
sures below the base flood plane
are illegal. Many Keys home-
owners want an exemption from
that rule. They claim their homes
were purchased with the enclo-
sures in place.
"I think we have addressed
the issues FEMA has raised and I
can only hope they come into this
meeting with an open mind,"
Neugent said.

Officials hunt for sewer funds


Three return
from DC. with
cautious hope
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Many taxis were taken, many
stairs were climbed and many
halls were traversed.
Just as Monroe County offi-
cials traveled to Tallahassee this
week to seek money for sewers
and legislative support for local
issues, Marathon officials trav-
eled to Washington, D.C., this
week in search of funding for the
city's central sewer system.
City Manager Clyde Burnett,
Mayor Mike Cinque and
Finance Director Peter Rosasco
hoped to secure money from,
President Obama's stimulus
package not only for sewers but


also for the possible purchase of
Boot Key.
"Everyone gave us nice
smiles and nods and it sounded
very promising. I think some
money is going to be coming our
way, I really do, but you don't
want to get too over-optimistic,"
Burnett said.
Burnett said a federal
announcement about stimulus
money for sewer projects is
expected any day now and that it
was important for Marathon to
illustrate its project is "shovel
ready" - an Obama require-
ment for the federal funding.
"We've made presentations to
them, how far we are ahead of
everyone else except maybe Key
Largo. We're moving forward
and putting shovels in the
grounds," he said.
Cinque said he's also opti-


mistic Marathon will receive
money from the unprecedented
stimulus package.
"They didn't' promise any-
thing," he said. "It's a big
amount of money Congress
threw out there. We're right
there on the front line; hopefully
we get something."
Burnett and Cinque were also
optimistic about meetings with
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
Chief Financial Officer Maureen
Wylie and Commerce
Department officials about
grants to purchase Boot Key, a
1,100-acre island off Marathon
the city hopes to buy and use as
an eco-preserve tourist destina-
tion.
"She sounded positive about
some grants and she was very
impressed with Boot Key,"
Burnett said.


Some warm to in-the-buff beach


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Public debate over revitalizing
Higgs Beach in Key West has left
a new idea dangling out there:
How about a clothing-optional
beach?
Dean Townsend, who belongs
to the Florida Keys Naturists,
says the group of nudity enthusi-
asts has been around for a while
but is in the process of reorganiz-
ing and trying to expand. And on
the list of priorities is considera-
tion of a 6lothing-optional beach.
"We're, basically compiling
information and gathering sup-
port to get a [naturist] beach here
in Key West," he says. -
There are some places in the
Keys that naturists can go to sun
themselves in the buff, but none
that are officially endorsed or set
aside by local government.
Townsend says that economi-
cally, that's a bad idea, citing
Haulover Beach in North Miami.
Haulover includes a family
beach as well as a highly popular
naturist beach area. Based on
information compiled by the
Miami-Dade Parks and
Recreation Department, Haulover
received around 1.3 million visi-
tors in 2006, and 85 percent of
those went to the naturist beach.
Including direct revenue to the
beach, indirect revenue like


rentals and concession sales,
tourist taxes and state sales, tax,
Haulover generated $179.5 mil-
lion in 2006 alone, according to
the Miami-Dade Parks and
Recreation Department.
But how do the economics of
North Miami translate to our
small isolated island paradise?
John Giuliano, executive
director of the Key West Business
Guild, told the Keynoter that the
majority of the calls his office
receives are inquiries about cloth-
ing-optional beaches.
"We get that question like
every day," he said. "It's crazy.
There's definitely a market for it."
He pointed to Key West's
increasing number of European
guests who are accustomed to
clothing-optional beaches, as
well as the closure of Atlantic
Shores, a popular gay resort that
allowed nude sunbathing, as jus-
tification for the need of a natur-
ist beach in Key West.
Sloan Bashinsky, who has run

times, said a naturist beach could
be placed on Rest Beach near the
White Street Pier, on a section of
Higgs Beach that is seldom used
and sheltered by the West
Martello, or even on Wisteria

"I think it would be an incred-


ible boon to the Key West econo-

every resource we have." Plus,
"Key West without that kind of

Keys Opinion


Take a fresh look at

appointed schools chief

In coffee shops, checkout lines, standing on street corners,
plenty of conversations this week focused on the latest revela-
tions of suspected credit card abuse in the Monroe County
School District.
First reports surfaced early in March when the district's
finance director refused to sign off on financial statements
requested by state auditors.
From that little trickle, a gusher of allegations has emerged,
inundating virtually everyone in the school system, unfairly or not.
School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths, who has been a
staunch advocate of separating the board role from that of the
elected superintendent, came to an epiphany this week.
He told our schools reporter David Ball that "the system has
been shaken up so badly, [the board's] priority is simply to
restore credibility in what we do."
That will not be easy.
The pattern of weak oversight raises all kinds of questions
about how taxpayer money is being spent. Clearly, a bunch of
bucks were being diverted away from the classroom, adding to
the outrage.
And all those layers of highly compensated administrators
did nothing to stop this apparent fraud from happening over a
very long period of time.
One idea that Griffiths floated this week involves hiring a
permanent internal auditor who reports to the board, not to the
superintendent.
That model is widely used elsewhere in Florida and a prime
example might be Miami-Dade, where the district's auditor gen-
eral generated so much heat about wasteful spending that it trig-
gered a change in the elected board and ousted a superintendent.
Such an approach shows the potential of an independent
auditor, key for any system of checks and balances. Lacking
credible financial controls is proving to be a fatal flaw in
Monroe County's school district.
Our superintendent is an elected position with power vested
by the voters, not a hired CEO answerable to the elected School
Board.
This newspaper has endorsed the idea of going to an appoint-
ed superintendent model in the past, even though Keys voters
have rejected that idea three times.
Now that folks realize there is no removal mechanism in place '
- except if the governor acts - perhaps the idea of an appoint-
ed superintendent will gain more support from the electorate.
Should that happen, we might still salvage some bit of good
out of what has been a very sorry run of bad news about school
finances this entire month.

DCA critical to maintaining growth controls


EDITOR:
I am a resident and registered voter of Monroe
County and wanted to say how distressed I am
about the Legislature's move to abolish the
Department of Community Affairs.
DCA is Florida's only agency that has cur-
tailed any of the gross mismanagement of growth
and development in this state. I see the disman-
tling of DCA as another developer-influenced
move to further weaken growth regulations so
even more development can further erode our
fragile natural resources and cram more people in
.our already overcrowded state.
Our state is in the throes of a water crisis that
severely threatens those of us who live here now,
yet developers cry out for more growth and
development. Florida has too long depended on
this development to fund our state and local gov-
ernments. But the ugly truth of that dependency


is now exposed, as the current economic mess
.shows us that growth and development does not
pay for itself. All that overdevelopment is now
exposing the real costs to us taxpayers, and it is
not pretty.
Please do not be swayed by the siren song of
the development industry to abolish DCA. We
need it now more than ever. In fact, if there is any
way the Legislature can strengthen the growth
regulations we have now, I urge it to do so.
For too long, in Florida it has been govern-
ment of the developer, by the developer, for the
developer. It is time for that to change. Florida
residents and voters are counting on state Rep.
Ron Saunders and the Legislature to represent us
and not the deep-pocket development industry.

Another seafood fest goes off without a hitch


EDITOR:
Thank-the lord for perfect weather, allowing
us to present the 33rd annual Original.Marathon
Seafood Festival, our opportunity to showcase
this event and help preserve Marathon's .histori-
cal heritage, and remind everyone just.how
important the commercial fishing industry is to
the identity and economy of the city we live and
work in.
Thank you to all of the fishermen, their
wives, sons, daughters, friends and volunteers
who unselfishly worked many hours preparing,
cooking and serving the delicious seafood and
baked goods, helping to make this year's festi-
val an overwhelming success.
A very special thank you to Barbara Hewlett,
who worked long and hard putting all the pieces


together for the festival's armed forces dedica-
tion on Sunday that featured a two-fighter-jet
flyover from Boca Chica Sundowners Squadron
at Naval Air Station Key West, flag and colors

Nature walks show Keys worth preserving


EDITOR:
Nature walks at Crane Point Hammock will be
ending March 31. Since Dec. 16, 70 bird species,
six types of butterflies, two snake varieties and
three types of spiders have been sighted.
We would like to thank the staff at Crane
Point Nature Center and the Marathon Wild Bird
Center for their support. In addition, we want to
thank the visitors who took time on the walk to
pick up trash at the Grassy Key wetland area on
March 10.
The highlight of the season has been meeting
so many visitors from all parts of the country.

Cape Air cares
EDITOR:
I would like to send a special thank you to
Lacey at Cape Air in Marathon. On March 7, I
had to get a flight out due to the passing of my
brother in North Carolina. Lacey went above
and beyond her specified duties and although
the reason for the flight was sad, it made me
feel very happy to know that people like Lacey
really do care. Thank you so much.

Spending's hardly a mistake


.EDITOR:
Re: Former School District .
Adult Education Coordinator
Monique Acevedo's use of a dis-
trict credit card:
Do people really think that pur-
chases over two years and multiple
personal purchases worth thou-
sands of dollars is- a mistake?
Come on, an intelligent person


may make that mistake once, real-
ize they made the mistake when
they fill out expense reports, not
lie about what was bought on that
expense form, and put that credit
card in another place in their wal-
let so they do noftmake that mis-
take again.
Margie Aquino
Key West,


Here's a reason why Keys are No. 1


EDITOR:
On March 16 at 111th Street
and U.S. .1 in Marathon, while
backing up, we ran over a con- -
crete abutment, puncturing our gas
tank. Three men from Marathon
Fire Rescue responded to our 911
call. Their professionalism, kind-
ness and good humor was muchlf
appreciated at this stressful time.
The. taxpayers of Marathon can be


proud of their fire department.
This our second three-month
stay in the Keys..Treatment like
this makes it No. 1 on our long-
term destination list. I hope that
our emergency services people at
home measure up to the standard
set by yours.

Speak proper English


EDITOR:
In the news story "Who's
watching the money?" in the
March 21 edition, schools "
Superintendent Randy Acevedo is
quoted regarding the purchases on
his wife's credit card, saying:
"Certainly, there's some questions
that need to be explained." That
statement is grammatically incdr-
rect. He should have said:


"Certainly there are some ques-
tions that need to be explained."
Isn't our language 'difficult
enough to learn to read and write
properly without the schools
superintendent's bad example
becoming an impediment.to learn-
ing instead of a good model?

Pool brings neighbors together


EDITOR:
Congratulations to the Friends
of the Pool, staff of Founders Park
Pool, John Sutter and'coach Mark
Hill for putting together an incred-
ible Swim-a-Thon on March 21.
The event raised close to
$20,000 for support of existing
and new pool programming.
Citizen turnout was amazing and
the camaraderie in support of the
occasionally controversial, town
swimming hole was unparalleled.
I commend Islamorada
Councilman Don Achenberg for
pointing a sharp stick at citizens
to do more for their community.


And I.commend him and fellow
council members Dave Boerner
and Jill Zima-Borski and Village
Manager Ken Fields for stopping
by and cheering on the swimmers.
Between laps, John Sutter said
it was a wonderful day for the
pool. It was a great vibe and an
upbeat party atmosphere. The day
exceeded his expectations. This
impressive coming together of
kids, coaches, citizens, local busi-
nesses and staff is a good sign of
things to come. -

The message is clear at the Southernmost Post of the VFW: Navy jets are welcome
in Key West, no matter how loud.

Navy presence makes Key West what it is


EDITOR:
I am upset and disturbed about the
article in the Keynoter.on March 21
about what the Monroe County
Commission, and specifically
Commissioner Kim Wigington, com-
plaining about the Navy making noise
over the Lower Keys.
The commission should take care of
county business and not tell the Navy
how to operate its flight operations.
Commissioner Kim obviously knows lit-
tle or nothing about flying jet'aircraft, or.
what it takes to take off and land. Those'


brave young men and women that fly
these jets are our first line of defense
and risk their lives every day when they
take off and land.
. If I remember right, if it were not for
the Navy, Key West would not even
exist. Naval Air Station Key West was
there long before any residences were
there, so stop complaining and thank
God that we do have those brave men
and women there -to protect our butts
when needed.

Duck Key


The Navy's jets actually produce the 'sound of war'


EDITOR:
The members of the M-10 Coalition
thank the Monroe County Commission for
its recent unanimous approval of a resolu-
tion requiring the U.S. Navy to cease and
desist flying the F-18 aircraft until certain.
conditions, designed to protect the health
and welfare of local citizens, are met.
While the Navy responded by saying it


Let the Navy fly
EDITOR:
As I listen to the news reports of com-
plaints about military aircraft noise inter-
fering with residents' peace and quiet and
quality of life, I wonder - have they for-
gotten we are fighting a war? Thank good-
ness it is being fought off our shores and
not over our heads on a daily basis.
Imagine how life would be then.
I understand the noise is very loud, but
our military needs to be able to train, be
ready and respond to threats when needed.
So as for my family and I, fly over our
house all you need and thank you for pro-
tecting me, my family, our country and our
freedom.
Joanne Boyden
Marathon


would not abide by the resolution, the M-
10 Coalition thinks an important message
has been sent to the Navy and the
Department of Defense.
That message; Residents 6f the Lower
Keys demand that the U.S. Navy follow
the law and properly evaluate the environ-
mental impact that the F-18 is having on
the nearby community.
Sbme in our community have come to
call the sound of the jets they hear flying
in the distance the "sound of freedom."
However, it is our understanding that the
noise from these aircraft can be used to
inflict what the military refers to as
"acoustic trauma" on non-enemy combat-
ants (civilians) in a war zone.
For those of us living in the Navy fly
zone, the jets can literally become the
"sound of war."
The Navy does not have the right to
conduct training without regard for the
health of U.S. citizens who live in prox-
imity to the air base. Federal law requires
the Navy to fully evaluate the impact of
its actions on the health and safety of the
host community residents.
We ask them to do so.

County revamping response to Cuba migration


Obama plans
to ease travel
spur new look
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Monroe County officials plan
to upgrade their plan to handle a
Cuban mass migration following
President Obama's pledge to ease
travel restrictions to the island
nation. -


Thursday at -9:30 a.m. at the
Marathon Government Center,
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi will convene a communi-
tywide symposium on what the
Keys can expect if Cuba's bor-
ders open - again.
County Emergency Manage-
ment Director Irene Toner said
representatives from the U.S.
Coast Guard, - Miami-Dade
County, Sheriff's Office, hospi-
tals and the County Commission


I Lela Ashkarian
REALTOR'
PA., CRS, GRI, e-PRO
(305) 395-0814
lela@coldwellbanker.com
Y' www.MyHomesInTheKeys.com


will be on hand to talk about ini-
tial response to a mass migration.
Cuba lies fewer -than 100
miles from the Keys.
In the summer of 1994, Castro
opened his borders and more than
30,000 migrants rafted to the
Keys in just a couple of months.
Federal immigration buses taking
them to the Krome Detention
Center in Miami-Dade filled U.S.
1.
And of course, in 1980, Castro
opened the Port of Mariel, and
American citizens trailered their
boats south to the Keys, where
they launched toward Cuba to
pick up relatives and friends.
When the Mariel boatlift came to
an end, more than 125,000 Cubans
had arrived in South Florida.
"We just want to get together
and say this may happen; let's
talk about it and make sure we
know what everyone is doing,"
Toner said.
Gastesi said the plan, created
in 2007, should be looked at
given the change in administra-
tions in both the U.S. and Cuba.
"We want to make sure we are
prepared. He's about to do step
one to make family visits once a
year instead of every three
years," Gastesi said, referring to
Obama allowing Cdban natives
to return home every year.


"We're going to dust it off and
see what's in there and make sure
everyone is on board."
ToQer agreed, saying even


'We want

to make

sure we are

prepared.'
- Roman Gastesi,
County Administrator


though the current plan may be
adequate, an administration
change means it should be looked
at.
"We can't just sit back and say


what we had in place two years
ago is still good. .It may be, but
we definitely have to pay atten-
tion," she said.
The Tourist Development
Council prepared the last mass
migration plan, which was last
modified March 9, 2007. The
TDC has been proactive in
preparing for the travel ban on
Cuba to be lifted.
The TDC plan notes that the
Department of Homeland
Security won't allow boats to
leave U.S. waters heading for
Cuba. It also says that in the'
event of a mass migration, the
Sheriff's Office will stop vehicles
on U.S. 1 that are trailing boats
down the highway, especially
those longer than 17 feet.
Enforcement efforts on ,the
- water would be concentrated on
the Florida Straits.


And then


there was one...


Delph lobster
conspiracy trial
set for Monday
Keynoter Staff

A husband and wife pleaded
guilty in federal court Thursday
to federal counts of conspiracy in
the Operation: Freezer Bum lob-
ster poaching case, leaving just
one more defendant's fate in
question.
David and Denise Dreifort of
Cudjoe Key admitted to leading a
scheme last year to illegally har-
vest more than 1,100 lobsters
worth more than $59,000 from
Lower Keys waters.
David Dreifort admitted to the
illegal catch of more than 1,100
whole lobsters, plus hundreds
more wrung tails with a value of
more than $85,000. Denise
Dreifort admitted piloting the
couple's 28-foot Whitewater boat
during some of the dives and
helping load nearly $38,000
worth of illegal lobsters seized by
federal agents on Aug. 6.
Rob Hammer of Miami, a
well-known charter fishing guide
in the Keys; Sean Reyngoudt, an
aspiring professional kitesurfer
from Summerland Key; and John
Niles of LaBelle all previously


pleaded guilty to conspiracy. All
face up to five years in prison and
fines up to $250,000.
In U.S. District Court in
Miami, Judge Jose Martinez is
scheduled to sentence Niles on
Wednesday, Hammer and
Reyngoudt on June 1 and the
Dreiforts on June 2.
The Dreiforts' pleas leave
only Key West charter boat cap-
tain Mike Delph - he of the
famed charter-fishing Delph fam-
ily - with a case still outstand-
ing. He's chosen to go to fight a
conspiracy count and is sched-
uled for trial at 9:30 a.m. Monday
before Martinez in Key West.
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.
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.

'Nobama,' but


we can hope


Jail official
reaches out
to VP staffer
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


OK, so President Obama
likely isn't coming to the Keys
in the spring to lift some trav-
el restrictions to Cuba, as was
reported earlier this week.
But there's always hope,
right? And a little connection
to the nation's No. 2 in charge
couldn't hurt.
On May 8, the Harry S
Truman Little White House in
Key West celebrates Truman's
125th birthday, and then a
week later on the 15th, the
Little White House will be
rededicated, since renovation
is nearly complete to restore
Truman's winter, home to its,
1949 glory.
Bob Graham, former
Florida senator and governor,
is the special guest for the
rededication.
At its meeting on March 17,
the Key West City
Commission approved a reso-
lution "enthusiastically invit-
ing" Obama to visit the Little
White House for the May 8
birthday bash.
Then on Tuesday, a
Washington Times columnist
reported he had heard Obama
plans a springtime visit. The
White House denied it.
And "President Obama has-
n't called saying, 'Hey, I'm
coming on down to Key
West,"' City Commissioner
Bill Verge said. "We know
nothing about any visit. It's
really doubtful."
Although the City
Commission passed the reso-
lution, it's up to the Little
White House staff to send an
actual invitation.
That's where Vice President
Joe Biden comes in, sort of.
-Maj. Tommy Taylor, who
oversees the Stock Island
Detention Center for the
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, is a longtime friend of
one of Biden's speechwriters,
Joe White.
Tim Gratz, who is coordi-


nating the
125th birth-
day bash,
S reached -out
to Taylor,
who reached
out to White,
who could
reach out to
OBAMA Biden, who
could reach
out to Obama. That's a lot of
reaching, but still....
"There's no guarantees,"
Taylor told the Keynoter. But,
"We're trying to encourage the
president to come down. He
[White] told me he could give
the info to the VP. We thought
it would be a perfect time for
the president
to come."
White
wrote back to
Gratz, "I will
pass the
information
on to the vice
president. I
assume that
BIDEN the presi-
dent's schedule. is already
booked for May, but there's no
doubt that a trip to Key West
will be tempting - and the
connection to President
Truman is very appropriate." ,
As for the Washington
Times piece, it had lots of peo-
ple scurrying to get the skinny.
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen's office was called;
she hadn't heard anything.
Andy Newman, who does mar-
keting for the county Tourist
Development Council, tried to
confirm the report with an old
contact from the State
Department.
Turns out since Newman
met him, Phillip T. Reeker has
ascended the chain of com-
mand as a Foreign Service
diplomat and is now the U.S.
ambassador to Macedonia. So
no, he hadn't heard anything
about Obama's would-be visit,
either.
As for the Little White
House? Executive Director
Bob Wolz says, "We honestly
believe [Obama] will be here
sometime."

Shared sewer treatment back on table


But village
wants to be asked
before talking
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Islamorada leaders are reach-
ing out to Key Largo sewer offi-
cials about sharing sewer treat-
ment with the village - in a
roundabout way.
Several members of the
Islamorada Village Council have
opposed even talking about an
agreement at this point. Although
council members broached the
topic, official talks wouldn't
begin unless Key Largo waste-
water officials invite
Islamorada's mayor to a meeting,
the five council members decided
Thursday night.
The plan is to have Village
Manager Ken Fields contact Key


Largo
Waste water
Treatment
District
administrators
and persuade
them to ask
the district's
commission-
ACHENBERG ers to invite
Islamorada
Mayor Don Achenberg to their
next meeting.
If that happens, Achenberg
will ask the commissioners if
they are interested in studying the
potential benefits of sharing Key
Largo's sewage treatment plant
- and sharing the cost of an
independent study of the issue.
Vice Mayor Michael
Reckwerdt and Councilman
David Boerner had wanted
Achenberg to go to a Key Largo
wastewater board meeting. But

Achenberg and Councilwoman
Cathi Hill, who oppose a sharing
agreement with Key Largo,
insisted that Key Largo must send
an invitation first, feeling the vil-
lage was slighted in previous dis-
cussions on the topic.
"If they wanted to talk to us
about it, we would have heard
from them," Hill said.
Two. years ago, Islamorada
spent $50,000 on two studies of
the economic impact of contract-
ing with Key Largo for waste-
water treatment. The consultants
advised against the move.
Back then, it was Key Largo
reaching out to Islamorada. Key
Largo has a $27 million, 3-mil-
lion-gallon-per-day treatment
plant at mile marker 100.5. Key
Largo officials said the more
sewage flowing into it, the better
it would function.
Handling Islamorada's sewage
was expected to help the Key
Largo district pay some of its $45
million in debt from building the
plant.


Proponents in Islamorada say
the agreement could be a worthy
alternative to current plan to build
separate wastewater treatment
plants on four Islamorada islands.
The entire system could end
up costing $120 million when
slated for completion in 2014.
Without grants, property owners
could pay up to $20,000 each in
connection charges, village
Finance Director Cindy Lawson
said Thursday. All the Keys are
under state mandate to build cen-
tralized sewers.
Language in a proposal by
Key Largo's district in April 2007
struck Hill and Achenberg as con-
descending, because it repeatedly
referred to Islamorada as a "cus-
tomer."
It's still not clear if Achenberg
will be invited by Key Largo
wastewater commissioners.
Commissioner Charlie Brooks
is against a sewage agreement
with the village. He was at the
Village Council meeting
Thursday to tell Islamorada coun-


cil members to drop the issue.
"You're going your way, and
we're going ours," he told the
council.
But the otger four Key Largo
commissioners are willing to lis-
ten. Commissioners Andy Tobin
Susan Hammaker, Norm Higgins
and Robert Majeska said they
would vote to invite Achenberg to
their meeting.
"I am open to inviting him. I'm
not beyond asking anyone to one
of our meetings," Hammaker said.
"I'm open to the whole thing.
We live on the same chain of
islands and we have many of the
same concerns," Majeska said.
Higgins said, "I'd invite him
for sure. If this could be mutually
beneficial to both parties, why
not sit down and talk about it."
And Tobin said, "It would be
irresponsible for us not to talk."

New mayor
Also at Thursday's Village
Council meeting, Achenberg
replaced Hill as mayor, and
Reckwerdt replaced Achenberg
as vice mayor. The council
appoints the mayor and vice
mayor to the largely symbolic
posts for one-year terms.

Lobster season
ends Tuesday night

Last-minute lobster trips must
end at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
The eight-month Florida reg-
ular lobster season closes at 12
a.m. April 1. No lobster harvests
will be allowed until the two-day
sport mini-season begins July 29.
Most commercial fishing
activity for lobster slowed signif-
icantly earlier this spring, as
catches tend to decline sharply
toward the end of the season.
The last several years have
seen below-average harvests for
lobster, Monroe County's most
important seafood catch.
Catch reports earlier this year
indicated this year will likely be
below the average as well, after
passing tropical storms seemed
to slam the door on harvests after
a promising start to the season.
Final catch reports for the sea-
son will not be available for sev-
eral months.
The regular lobster season
opens again.Aug. 6.

Keynoter,










OK likely for


shallow injection


Backup system
poses no threat
to water supply
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A change to state law on
wastewater injection wells could
save Key Largo property owners
an estimated $4 million.
"It only affects backup injec-
tion wells, and only affects
Monroe County," said Keys state.
Rep. Ron Saunders, who spon-
sored House Bill 1053 in the
Florida Legislature.
The bill and its Florida Senate
companion bill filed by Sen.
Larcenia Bullard have been
approved by several legislative
committees with nro significant
opposition.
"Everybody seems to agree
with the intent, and the
[Department of Environmental
Protection] is OK with it,"
Saunders said.
"This is not a threat to the
coral reef," he said. "I wouldn't
have filed it if I thought it would
impact the reef."
The law change would allow
the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District to drill 90 feet
down for its backup injection
well at the treatment plant near
mile marker 100.
The primary injection well is
2,000 feet deep, as required by
state law to avoid damaging
freshwater aquifers and to limit
effects on nearshore waters.
"I wanted DEP approval
before I signed off on this,"


Saunders said. "When they said
it's OK, I was OK."
Said Saunders, "No one is
talking about dumping raw
sewage down a shallow well.
This is treated water."
The law change stipulates the
backup well could be used no
more than 500 hours over a five-
year period.
"Overall, this is a fine thing,"
said Debbie Harrison, who works
on Keys nearshore-water issues
for the World Wildlife Fund.
"One of the things that people
fear about large wastewater sys-
tems is the cost.
"Deepwater wells are enor-
mously expensive, and this helps
keep us from breaking the bank
on a system that would only be
used for a minimal amount of
time," she said.
Key Largo district board
Chairwoman Susan Hammaker
said the request should be "non-
controversial."
"We're not asking for anything
except trying to save our residents
some money," she said. The over-
all Key Largo sewage system is
budgeted at $155 million.
The shallower well also would
be easier to use if a hurricane
temporarily knocked out power
to the Keys.
"This is far preferable to hav-
ing effluent back up into homes
and running onto the ground,"
Harrison said.
Said Saunders, "The only peo-
ple who seem not to like the bill
are the well-diggers. If some-
body's saving $4 million, some-
body else isn't getting paid $4
million."

The Navy is exploring the
purchase of Enchanted Isle in
their ongoing effort to control
housing density and complaints
about jet noise around Naval
Air Station Key West.
Enchanted Isle is a 10-acre
island near the entrance to Key
Haven and directly under the
path used by F/A 18 Hornets
taking qff or landing at the air
base.
It's currently owned by
developer Wayne .Lujuan, who
put it on the market in February
with a price tag of $4.9 million.
Navy spokesman Jim
Brooks told the Keynoter that

the possible purchase of
Enchanted Isle is "part of the
whole conversation about ways
you can solve compatible
development."
Compatible development is
government-ese meaning that
the Navy would rather not see
any more residential develop-
ment around the base, which
sits on Boca Chica Key. In fact,
in the 1980s, the Navy bought
up several sizeable pieces of
land around the base.
Lately, Lower Keys resi-
dents have been complaining
about the noise the jets make as
they fly over homes on Stock
Island, Geiger Key and. Shark
Key.
"It's very, very loud. When
it's continuous, it's very debili-
tating. It can be painful to your
ears," said Geiger Key resident
Don Riggs, a member of the M-


10 coalition, a consortium of
homeowners' associations.
Last week, the Monroe
County Commission passed a
resolution calling on the Navy
to "cease and desist" flying-the
F/A 18s from Boca Chica.
Commissioner Kim Wigington
fired off a series of damning facts
included in a previously classi-
fied internal Navy report about
the F/A 18s. The report says the
Navy made no attempt to mitigate
"the flight line/deck jet noise haz-
ard" when the plane was
designed.
The report also says the jets
emit "a maximum of 150 deci-
bels, which is well above the
noise level considered haz-
ardous to hearing," which is
more than 84 decibels. The
report goes on to say that pro-
longed exposure to such noise
levels "increases the likelihood
of permanent hearing loss to
sailors and Marines."


At the beginning of the year,
the Navy approached, both the
county and Key West about
participating in a Joint Land
Use Study that would identify
areas where Navy activities
affect the day-to-day lives of
residents. The county didn't
bite.
"A Joint Land Use is a
framework for compromise and
the Navy is of the belief that it's
the best vehicle," Brooks said.
He said the study would be
funded by the Department of
Defense and allows stakehold-
ers to "have a discussion with-
out emotions."
Next Tuesday at 10 a.m. the
County Commission and Navy
officials will meet to discuss
the issue of jet noise at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West. The meeting is open
to the public and will be tele-
vised.

Resort at mile marker 97.
Park staff will give a 6 p.m.
presentation on plans to amend
the Everglades' management
rant plan, and in particular, how to
protect park waters and resources
in Florida Bay.

il Summer Surprises and propeller scarring to the bay

Dan Kimball said in a prepared
statement.
"These scientific studies 'on
boat use in the park and patterns of
propeller scarring on Florida Bay
seagrasses will provide a founda-
tion for development of a balanced
approach to protecting park
resources and providing access to
the public," Kimball said.
Florida Keys residents con-
cerned about losing motorboat
access to large areas of the bay
say a series of draft alternatives
to be used for discussion are gen-
erdlly less restrictive than draft
plans that sparked a large outcry
in 2007. However, they intend to
ask raises issues at the upcoming
sessions.
"There are a lot of ways to
address the problems without
resorting to closures," Islamorada
angler Jim Trice said.
The public comment period
will run through May 15, after
which the park will release a final
plan.
In addition to the Monday
meeting, the park staff returns to
Key Largo on April 13 for a sec-

Whitmore to be charged in Gardner killing


Cops say she
was accessory
after the fact
Keynoter Staff

Kristena Whitmore will be
charged with being an accesso-
ry to murder after the fact and
grand theft auto in connection
with the homicide of a man
aboard his Stock Island boat last
month.
Friday, the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office said warrants
have been issued for the arrest of
Whitmore - who's been sitting
in the Salt Lake City, Utah, jail


since Feb. 21, when she and her
boyfriend were found by police
at a Motel 6 just outside of Salt
Lake.
The boyfriend, Jonathon
LeBaron, 32, is charged with
first-degree murder and auto
theft in the death of Richard
Gardner, 57. LeBaron is fight-
ing extradition to the Keys.
LeBaron is accused of lying
in wait in Gardner's boat cabin
in the early evening of Feb. 10.
Whitmore led Gardner there,
according to the murder war-
rant.
The warrant says Whitmore
and Gardner, a Cape Coral and


N e w
Hampshire
resident, had
met online
. ":-.; , t h.rou g h
c r.a craigslist,
Where she had
posted an ad,
and he had
LeBARON paid her for
oral sex on
"numerous occasions."
Authorities say that in
February, Whitmore contacted
Gardner, after the craigslist
relationship developed, and told
him she had nowhere to stay; he
offered to let her stay onr his
boat at the Oceanside Marina.
That was supposed to be Feb.

The . following night,
Gardner arrived at the marina
and met Whitmore outside the

through the hatch, with
Whignore close behind.
LeBaron "was waiting inside
the cabin of the vessel.
[Whitmore] then stated that

Grouper closure coming, after all


There doesn't
appear to be
any recourse
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The dawn of 2010 seems
almost certain to bring with it a
four-month closure for most shal-
low-water grouper species in fed-
eral South Atlantic waters.
The National Marine Fisheries
Service said Wednesday that the
agency has "partially approved"
changes to grouper and snapper


regulations in federal Atlantic
waters from North Carolina to
Key West.
Those changes, expected to
become law within a few months,
include a January-through-April
closed season for red grouper,
black grouper and several related
species.
"At this point, do we have any
,redress? I don't think so," said
offshore captain Bill Kelly, who
has been closely following the
issue for the Islamorada Charter
Boat Association.
Federal fishery managers
sought to have the closed season

on grouper start in January 2009
but administrative delays pre-
vented the rule from taking effect
this winter.
Florida Keys charter captains
actively protested the rule, saying
it would give the Keys' sportfish-
ing image a black eye in the height
of the winter tourism season.
Originally intended to protect
the overfished stock of gag
grouper, the closure also included
many shallow-water species,
including red grouper and black
grouper.
While gag grouper are rela-
tively rare in the Keys, black and
red grouper area favorite target
for Keys food fishermen..
Federal fishery biologists say
they believe most types of shal-
low-water grouper are over-
fished, and the four-month clo-
sure during the peak spawning
season can help rebuild the popu-
lations to a sustainabJe level.
Kelly sent an e-mail to Roy
Crabtree, the Fisheries Service
regional administrator, to ask if
there's a chance the 2010 closure
could be shortened in Keys
waters.
"The answer was no," Kelly
related.

A final rule for Amendment 16
to the South Atlantic regulations
on snapper and grouper still must
be published in the Federal
Register. That is expected to occur
in the near future but no date is
.available, said Kim Iverson, South
Atlantic Fishery Management
Council spokeswoman.
' The rule would take effect
within a specified time period
after publication.
While the closure Would not
occur until the specified Jan. 1,
2010, date, other aspects of the
rule change likely will be enacted
before then. Those items include
reducing the shallow-water
grouper recreational daily bag
limit from five fish to three, only
one of which can be black or gag


grouper.
Reductions in the catch of ver-
milion snapper also are included
in the change.
A new population assessment
for red grouper and black grouper
is expected to begin later this
year, and should be complete by
early 2010, Kelly said.
"It's important that stakehold-
ers participate so we can deter-
mine the status of the stock, and
work to get the closure amended
for subsequent years," he said.
For information on the pend-
ing rule change, go to
www.safmc.net.
The grouper closure apparent-
ly will not affect state waters, but
will apply to all charter boats
holding federal fishing permits.

'I feel very blessed'


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon High School stu-
dents have taken kissing up to
teachers to a new level, skipping
right over the apple and moving
straight to building one a house.
Sarah Adams, a single mother
and third-grade teacher at Stanley
Switlik . Elementary School,
learned Wednesday evening that


she will be the recipient of the
much-publicized "Habitech
House" being built by students at
the high school construction lab.
Adams said 'receiving the
home "has really saved my life,"
and that her time in the Keys
would likely have been short if
not for this opportunity.
"I feel very blessed tonight. I

feel like I won the lottery,"
Adams said. "It's very hard to
afford a house down here, but
I've had a tough life and I really
appreciate it. I have struggled
with having a pace to live and this
is amazing."
The 1,200-square-foot, three-
bedroom, two-bath house is being
built in four sections by some 40
students at the high school, under
the supervision of instructor
Glenn Naklicki. It was revealed
Wednesday for the first time that
the house will be located on
Bonita Drive, behind the Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
The Monroe County School
District partnered with Habitat
for Humanity of the Middle Keys
on-the project, and once the
School Board and Marathon City
Council signed off on the idea,
students got to work at the begin-
ning of this school year.
And you can scrap those con-
spiracy theories about a teacher
being awarded the home, Middle
Keys Habitat President Bruce
Ferraro says; it's merely coinci-
dence Adams received that par-
ticular house. The organization's
family selection committee used
various criteria to narrow a list of

Stanley Switlik Elementary School teacher Sarah Adams drives a
nail into her new home, the 'Habitech House' being built by
students at Marathon High School. The 28-year-old learned
Wednesday she'll be the recipient of the house, which is the
result of a partnership between the School District and Habitat
For Humanity of the Middle Keys. It's scheduled to be completed
by June 1.


19 applicants down to the three
who were awarded homes this
time around.
The labor to build the home
was donated by students and
local professionals who gave
time to work with them. That
lowered the construction cost sig-
nificantly, and Adams, with just
one income, fit the bill best for
that particular home. She's the
first single mother awarded a
house by Middle Keys Habitat:
Adams grew up in rough
neighborhoods in Oakland,
Calif., and New Haven, Conn.,
before landing in the Keys and
graduating from Marathon High
in 1998. After graduating from
the University of Central Florida,
she came back to the Keys in
2002 to be near family, including
little sister Michelle, a Marathon
.High student who's actually
worked on the house in class.
Adams has overcome a lot of
hardship in her 28 years and
turned out to be a successful,
well-respected teacher in just her
fourth year at Switlik. She's
National Board Certified in liter-
acy for early and middle child-
hood and teaches after school and
summer school classes.
"It's a great success story in
my book. If all teenagers did the
same thing she did, our town
would be terrific. We're proud to
be associated with her," Ferraro
said.
Switlik Principal Barbara
Wright said Adams is most
deserving and that it's good to
know she'll be around for years
to come.


"She is such an outstanding
young teacher at .our school,"
Wright said: "It's so much fun to
think she's a product of our
school system and is giving back
to our community as a school
teacher and is going to be the
recipient of this home built by
students in our school system."
Mark Hooper, schools career
and technical education coordina-
tor, says the house will be ready
for Habitat to pick up by June 1.
Ferraro told Adams on
Wednesday she'd likely be
moved in by Sept. 1 and there is a
groundbreaking ceremony
planned for 9:30 a.m. April 18.
Adams was working overtime
to make ends meet and looks for-
ward to the peace of mind being a
homeowner will provide. Not liv-
ing paycheck to paycheck will
allow her to slow down a bit and
enjoy what's most important to
her - 5-year-old daughter Alliyah
Beth..
"That's one of the best things
about this is being able to spend
more time with her," she said.
"I'm excited to just do my job
and live my life."
Every Habitat house recipient
is required to do "sweat equity,"
which in Adams' case will
involve tutoring children from
another Habitat family. But she
plans to stay involved with
Habitat for a long time to come.
"My time's not done when I'm
done serving my hours. They're
an awesome organization, and
what they do for families is
great," Adams said.

Segway promoter


sues Key West


Names city
attorney as
co-defendant
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Now that the Ducks Tour
lawsuit is settled for the
princely sum of $8 million,
what's next for the city of Key
West? Drum roll, please...
Another lawsuit! This one in
federal court instead of the
county Circuit Court.
Al Danley, who is repre-
senting himself in the legal
proceedings, is a Boston-
based businessman who runs
Segway rental operations in
Orlando and Boston. He wants
to bring that business to Key
West, but the city has a law on
the books that bans the use of
the two-wheeled upright
mobile platforms in the Old
Town historic district.
In his initial complaint,
which asked for emergency
injunctive relief, Danley said
that regardless of any city law,
this is an Americans with
Disabilities Act issue. He was
denied.
When he was in town in the
beginning of February, Danley
told the Keynoter: "Everyone
should have the right to have
improved mobility. There are
some people who want to
enjoy the island but can't walk
six miles."
In his suit filed Feb. 12 in
U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of Florida,
Danley alleges that the
Segway, like a power chair or
handicap scooter, is a "mobili-
ty assistive device." And fol-
lowing from that, anyone with
any level of mobility, impair-
ment should be permitted to
operate a Segway anywhere,
including Old Town side-
walks, and be considered a
pedestrian.
In addition to listing the
City of Key West as defen-
dant, Danley names City
Attorney Shawn Smith person-
ally. For this reason, the city
has hired Fort Lauderdale-
based attorney Michael Burke
of Johnson, Anselmo,


Murdoch, Burke, Piper &
Hochman, P.A. as outside
counsel.
The city has asked for the
suit to be thrown out, saying
that Danley had not alleged
that he. was disabled.
In response, Danley sub-
mitted a brief saying that he
was hit by a garbage truck in
2007, and that he suffers from
narcolepsy, which further
impairs his mobility.
The pending legal action


A code
officer cited
Moped
Hospital at
the end of
February for
renting the
Segways
without
having the
proper
occupational
license.


and even the city law in ques-
tion have not deterred Danley:
He leased several Segways to
the Moped Hospital on the
corner of Truman and
Simonton streets, and they've
been renting them to tourists.
A code officer cited Moped
Hospital at the end of
February for renting the
Segways without having the
proper occupational license.
Steve Olson, part owner of
Moped Hospital, maintains
that his license to rent "motor
driven vehicles" applies to
Segways and that he should
not be barred from renting
them.

DCA appears safe for now


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A Florida House bill aimed at
abolishing the state Department
of Community Affairs appears to
have little traction to make it
through the Legislature.
So says County Administrator
Roman Gastesi and several coun-
ty commissioners who traveled to
Tallahassee this week to lobby
for sewer funding and other
issues near and dear to the Keys.
Among other things, DCA
provides oversight on land use in
the Keys, an Area of State
Critical Concern. House Bill
7049 seeks to abolish DCA and
transfer its function to the


Department of State and
Executive Office of the
Governor.
"I certainly don't support that
and DCA plays a huge role in aid-
ing and assisting our county.
What I hear is many groups are
stepping up to the plate in support
of them," county Mayor George
Neugent said Friday from
Tallahassee.
- "Even if it were to pass, we
feel pretty confident that the gov-
ernor will veto that," Neugent
said. There is "a lot of talk up
here right now and that was one
of the topics that came up in sev-
eral meetings that I was in atten-

dance. This isn't the first time
they've tried to do this."
According to DCA spokesman
James Miller, there is no Senate
bill to support the House bill and
Gov. Charlie Crist is on record as
saying he doesn't favor doing
away with the agency.
According to the Florida
House Web site, the bill has been
awaiting a hearing in the
Economic Development &
Community Affairs ,-Policy
Council since March 17.
Commissioner Kim Wigington
said even though the DCA and
county are often at odds, the
agency is important to the Keys as
a Critical Concern area.
"I'm in support of keeping
DCA because it's offered us over-
sight in the past and [will] in the
future. While I disagree with the
incentives they're encouraging us
to offer for the redevelopment of
working waterfront, I think that
extra layer is worth it," she said.
Commissioner .Heather
Carruthers is still in Tallahassee,
taking part in Florida Association
of Counties courses, one of which
deals with growth management.
She said she's surprised there
have been no complaints about
the DCA.
"I really do think it's good to
have them and at least they know
and understand the Keys. I don't
always agree with them but I'm
kind of happy that they're there,"
Commissioner Mario Di Gennaro
said.

Today, a dream realized


Chappy's opens
after a decade
of hard efforts
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Chappy's Steak & Seafood
opens its doors at 11 a.m. today,
and the owners couldn't be more
pleased.
The opening of the waterfront
restaurant next to the Seven Mile
Bridge in Marathon is the long-
awaited realization of the decade-
long dream of Jim and Bettye
Chaplin. It's a dream they've
shared with their two sons, James
and Steve, who will manage it.
The Chaplins, both Realtors,
bought the parcel on Knights Key
12 years ago, and 10 years ago
they applied for county permits to
build.
But obstacles - zoning
issues, neighborhood concerns,
costly impact fees - kept aris-
ing, and the project sometimes
seemed doomed. Not that long
ago, they actually put the proper-
ty up for sale.
Finally, last fall, permits 'in
hand, they started the six-month
sprint to where they are today -
opening the coral-hued doors on
a restaurant that will be open 11
a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a
week.
It's been a long and very
bumpy road, and Bettye is happi-
est looking forward, not back.
Perhaps son Steve, the restau-
rant's property manager, says it
best: "I've been waiting for this
for a long, long time."
Chappy's is a spacious, open-
air 150-seat bar and restaurant
topped by a huge cathedral-style
tiki roof that is supported by mas-
sive rough-hewn beams.
" The roof, painstakingly put on
by a crew from the mainland, is
one of the few parts of the build-
ing done by people from outside
the Keys. Jim Chaplin served as
the project's general contractor,
and he and his wife are proud of
how much local craftsmanship
was involved.
"We've built a superior struc-
ture in a beautiful location,"
Bettye said.
The freshly poured pea-rock
parking lot is fenced and gated,
another concession to the city.
Along the water, there's a new
bulkhead and a sparkling water-
front pool - one of the conces-


sions the Chaplins made over the
years - surrounded by a con-
crete deck with tables and chairs.
On- Thursday afternoon, the
family relaxed a bit, taste-testing
some of the bar's specialty drinks
and talking about the journey
they took to today. (Chappy's sig-
nature drink will be the appropri-
ately named Green Flash, after
the sunset phenomenon.)
Son James, who is Chappy's
floor manager, talks about mow-
ing the large property, a chore
he's happy to have behind him
after 10 years.
His father, Jim, talks about
what a great fit Chappy's is for
the area.
"It's something that we felt
that Marathon needed," Jim says
when talking about the genesis of
their vision. The family's goal is
to cater to locals and families, but
also to provide the beautiful
waterfront vista that attracts so
many people to our islands.
James is proud of Chappy's
new 63-person staff.
The kitchen has 11 cooks,
including two with master's in
culinary arts he says, and a pastry


chef. The four-page menu fea-
tures a wide Variety of steak,
chicken and seafood dishes at a
variety of price points. Pizza is
also on the menu, as well as a
diverse selection of appetizers
and desserts.
Live music won't be a regular
addition to Chappy's. Instead, the
Chaplins want the view to sing.
"When you walk on the main
deck, it's very majestic, it's very
peaceful, it's very tranquil,"
James said.
Over the years, the Chaplin
property has been used as a stag-
ing area for the Seven Mile
Bridge Run and powerboat races,
and as a parking lot for the Pigeon
Key Art Festival, back in the days
when the festival was still held on
the tiny island two miles out.
The past 10 years have been
tumultuous for the Chaplins, but
that parcel saw a fair amount of
history long before they bought
it, Bettye points out.
It was used for the building of
the Flagler railroad, the original
Overseas Highway and the new
Seven Mile Bridge. The new'
bulkhead was poured, she says,
on a seawall that was probably
more than 100 years old.

Steve, Jim, Bettye and James Chaplin stand in their new
restaurant, Chappy's Steak & Seafood. The opening today is the
realization of a decade-long family dream.


On Thursday, the Chaplins
talked excitedly about upcoming
events that Chappy's will play
host to, including the Bridge Run
and the Super Boat races, as well
as fishing tournaments and,
Bettye hopes, water volleyball
matches in the pool.


Jim and Bettye are ready to let
their boys take the helm at
Chappy's while they finally relax.
Jim Chaplin worked seven days a
week to build Chappy's, and he's
tired.
"We're going to get in our
motor hortme and travel," Jim says.

Lobster lands


at the Rain Barrel

Owners hope giant.. "-
crustacean will

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The giant lobster of
Plantation Key is now watching
over the Overseas Highway
again.
The iconic 40-foot-long
spiny lobster, named Betsey, is
right out in front of the Rain
Barrel Artisan Village shopping
complex at mile marker 86.7.
"We're trying to preserve a,
piece of Islamorada history and
attract a little more business for
our artists," caretaker Mike
Forster said.
Betsey is made of metal and
fiberglass and stands three sto-
ries tall. She is a detailed, bio-
logically accurate depiction of a
female spiny lobster.
Betsey's new home at the
Rain Barrel is directly across
U.S. 1 from her longtime perch
at Treasure Village, a former
shopping complex that has con-
verted to a school.
The statue was disassembled
and removed from public view
for refurbishment and possible
sale last year, and at one point
had a list price of $400,000.

Feds: Cuba law flawed


State endorses
higher fees for
travel agents
Associated Press

A Florida law that would
make it more expensive for trav-
el agents to book trips to Cuba
interferes with federal regulation
of travel to the communist
island, according to the U.S.
Justice Department.
In the 35-page opinion issued
last Friday, the Justice Depart-
ment said the Sellers of Travel
Act also interferes "with the fed-
eral government's ability to speak
for the United States with one
voice in foreign affairs."
The law was passed by the
Florida Legislature in 2008 and
signed by Gov. Charlie Crist. It
requires travel agencies that sell
trips to Cuba to post a $250,000


bond with the state and pay up to
$2,500 in annual registration fees.
More than a dozen Florida-
based travel agencies filed a fed-
eral lawsuit against the state in
June to stop the law from taking
effect. They argue that the law dis-
criminates against them because it
would drive up their costs.
In July, a federal judge said
the law was likely unconstitu-
tional and issued a preliminary
injunction preventing Florida
from enforcing it. The injunction
remains in effect until a trial on
the law's constitutionality, which
has not been scheduled.
"I think this will definitely
help our position," said Steven
M. Weinger, one 6f the attorneys
representing the travel agencies.
"The Department of Justice has
basically taken the same position
that we've taken; that the state of
Florida does not have the right to


punish people who legally try to
sell trips to Cuba."
State Rep. David Rivera, a
Miami Republican, had touted
his measure as a "homeland
security" issue because-it target-
ed Florida-based travel agencies
that sold trips to the five coun-
tries on the U.S. State
Department's list of terrorist
nations: Iraq, Iran, Syria, North
Korea and Cuba.
The Justice Department's
opinion "demonstrates that the
Obama administration is obvi-
ously only interested in kissing
up to the Castro regime rather
than protecting Florida con-
sumers from the abuses of these
travel agencies," Rivera said.
President Obama earlier this
month signed 'a $410 billion
spending bill -that rolled back
Bush administration limits on
Cuban-Americans visiting their
relatives on the island. The bill
effectively allows visits once a
year, removes restrictions on how
long people can stay in Cuba and
permits spending up to $179 a
day. However, the changes only
remain in effect until the fiscal
year ends Sept. 30.


Betsey returns


LOBSTER / From 21

Plans to move Betsey to an
Upper Matecumbe Key busi-
ness stalled, and Betsey even,.
showed up on eBay, the online
auction site. No suitable bids
were received.
The family that owns the
giant lobster will lease it to
the new owners of the Rain
Barrel, which include Forster.,
"The giant lobster and
Lorelei mermaid are the local
tourism icons," said Judy
Hull, Islamorada Chamber of
Commerce executive director.
"When tourists come into our
visitor center, we get the ques-
tion: 'What's the story of the
giant lobster?'"
The story began with artist
Richard Blaze, then living in
Marathon. He used his fiber-
glass skills to create dinosaurs
and other statuary, primarily
for miniature golf courses.
Blaze was commissioned
by a restaurant to create the
giant lobster, but the business
shuttered before the lobster
was unveiled. The late Tom
Vellanti then acquired the


giant lobster for display at his
Treasure Village complex.
Betsey has appeared on tel-
evision shows and in the
Sports Illustrated swimsuit
issue.
A Web site on roadside attrac-
tions declares Islamorada's giant
lobster to be the largest non-
inflatable crustacean statue in
America.

Health program fits




seniors like a glove


Expansion possible depending on success-


By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

If you're in the 55-plus crowd
and want to stay healthy or get
healthier, you're in luck.
The Florida Keys Area Health
Education Center is offering a
series of classes designed to keep
the senior set healthy. They focus
on three areas:- Basic fitness,
common health problems and
balance.
The Health Education
Center's executive director,
Michael Cunningham, says the
classes are funded by a grant
from the Health Foundation of
South Florida that's split among
Monroes, Miami-Dade and
Broward counties. It's part of the
foundation's five-year, $7.5 mil-
lion Healthy Aging Initiative.
Census figures indicate that as
much as 40 percent of the Keys
population is 55, and older,
Cunningham said, so the pro-
gram's target population is cer-
tainly well-represented.
Cunningham said AHEC has
approached senior centers, fitness
clubs and social organizations
about the classes, with the goal of
offering them on as many islands
as possible.
"We hope people take full
advantage of what the program
has to offer," he said.
The Healthy Aging program's
first year in the Keys cost
$120,000, Cunningham said,
with much of that money going
toward training and paying
instructors. The foundation
trained AHEC's master trainers,
who in turn train the instructors.
Enhance Fitness focuses on
stretching, strength training, low-
impact aerobics and balance. It's
an hour-long class that meets three
days a week for 16 weeks. Right
now it's offered at Pirate Wellness
Center on Cudjoe Key and at
Keys Senior Plaza in Key West.
Living Healthy workshops
focus on managing ongoing
health problems such as diabetes,


-4
S,,


Enhance Fitness participants work out at the Pirate Wellness Center on Cudjoe Key.


arthritis, heart disease or high
blood pressure. The emphasis is
on setting goals and making step-
by-step progress toward meeting
them.
The workshops are two and a
half hours long, once a week for
six weeks. Classes are already
under way at Pirate Wellness and
at Keys Senior Plaza. A new
series starts at 9:30 a.m.
Wednesday at Fishermen's
Hospital in Marathon.
Matter of Balance focuses on
a common concern among older
adults - injuries from falls. The
class teaches people how to alter
their environment to reduce the
risk of falling, as well as gradual-
ly increasing their activity levels,
strength and balance. It's now
being offered at the Plantation
Key Senior Center.
AHEC's operations coordina-
tor, Laura Fowler, says the goal is
for the classes to be free, but
some sites do have a nominal fee.
Pirate Wellness, for instance,
charges $25 a month for the
thrice-weekly Enhance Fitness.


Fowler is also trained as an
instructor. She will teach, some
classes in Marathon starting next
month. Right now, she's putting
together. a six-month progress
report on the program, collecting
feedback from participants.
Celia Greaves took a Living
Healthy class at Keys Senior
Plaza, and she tells Fowler that
the action plan - walking 20
minutes each day - is one she's
stuck to even though the class is
over. She said the action plan
process helped her develop self-
discipline and gave her an incen-.
tive to stick with it, which is cru-
cial for retired people.
Enhance Fitness participants
Bob Kieber, Vicki Burbank and
Cindy Driscoll said they were all
surprised by how motivated they
were by the class. Kieber said as
a result of the class, he walked in
recent fundraisers at Blimp Road
and No Name Key.
Cunningham's pleased by the
length of the grant, because it
gives AHEC time to find a way to
sustain the -program beyond the


five years.
AHEC will periodically report
back to the foundation with its
results. The grant requires nearly
500 participants to complete a
class in the first year, a goal
Cunningham is confident will be
met by November.
He'd like to see participants
progress tl�ough the classes as
they're able. For instance, people
who complete Matter of Balance
are encouraged to sign up for
Enhance Fitness afterward.
"We help them develop those
muscles that can get them walk-
ing again," Cunningham said' of
the Matter of Balance class.
"They build up their confidence."
Cunningham says there's a
fourth program under way on the
mainland - Healthy Ideas,
geared toward seniors. dealing
with depression - that he hopes
to add in the Keys in the future.
People interested in signing up
for a class or getting AHEC's e-
mail newsletter should contact
Fowler at lfowler@fkahec.org or
743-7111, Ext. 206.

One thing missing this year:
Cheeca Lodge's sand sculpture
- contest.
Each year for the past 16, the
Islamorada resort hosted a beach
sand sculpture event where
"sculptors" spelled out an envi-
ronmental message in gigantic
letters visible from the air. The
2008 message was "Living
Green is the Key." The schedule
also included a kids' fishing tour-
nament and sand castle contest.
But Cheeca closed following
a New Year's Eve fire. The resort
is slowly being repaired.

The Tropic Cinema turns five!


All Key Westers
invited to
the celebration
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

On Saturday, April 4, the
Tropic Cinema in Key West
will celebrate its fifth
anniversary with an open
house, free movies, a ground-
breaking ceremony, and an
evening party.
If you were vacationing in
Key West, or if you'd just

moved here recently, you
might have been surprised to
find out that the Tropic's art
deco marquee on Eaton Street
appeared just five years ago;
and that the building that pre-
viously presented itself there
housed a carpet store.
The construction and open-
ing of the Tropic Cinema was
a massive undertaking by
hundreds of individuals, many
of whom had joined the Key
West Film Society, founded in
1998 by Michael Shields. The'
society was showing films
once a week at various places
around Key West - including

at the library on Fleming
Street, the Old City Hall on
Greene Street, at the lovely
San Carlos Institute, at Iron
Bodies Gym on Truman
Avenue, and at the East
Martello Fort out near the air-
port. But the goal of all
involved, from the start, was
to somehow get a theatre
built. A permanent home.
George Cooper, husband of
author Judy Blume, served as
chair of the young Key West
Film Society (he's now the
treasurer).
"For me and my wife," he
wrote in the commemorative
book published in the
Tropic's inaugural year, "it
began with a wish to see the
great movies that had provid-
ed our primary entertainment
fare in New York."
The Tropic shows films
that don't usually play at
most commercial cinemas -
documentaries, foreign-lan-
guage films, classics, inde-.
pendent films.
Mark Slater, managing
director of the Tropic Cinema,
says there is just one word
needed to describe the kinds
of films you can see at the
Tropic: the "best" ones.
It took two years to find
space in Key West that could
be converted into a cinema. It
was found in a building at
416 Eaton St. owned by Len
and Emmy Chetkin. It took a
clever architect, the Key
West-based Michael Miller;
about $1.8 million in capital;
and 18 months to transform
the former carpet store into
an art deco movie house.
The Tropic Cinema has
four screens - the Carper,
the Taylor, and the George -
and is about to begin work on
an expansion into the build-
ing next door to add a fourth
screen. The groundbreaking
ceremony will. be at 4:30 p.m.
on April 4, with Key West
Mayor Morgan McPherson
sticking the first shovel into
the ground.
From'12 noon to 3 p.m. on
April 4, all are invited for an
open house and to see free
movies on all three screens.
After the groundbreaking,
from, 5-7 p.m., all are invited
into the Tropic for a birthday
party, with cake and free pop-
corn.

And shows us

Margaret Menge
L'Attitudes Editor

Something happened
down here near the end of
the road on Monday night...
A woman appeared on stage at
the Tennessee Williams


carnation of Edith Piaf, the
greatest French singer who
has ever lived. And her voice
was as lovely, as tragic, trem-
bling and triumphant.
When Jil Aigrot sang "La
Vie En Rose," she walked to
one side of the stage, and
carefully stepped down onto
the floor of the theatre, mov-
ing up the aisle, the light fol-
lowing her. When she got to
the top aisle; she crossed over,
still singing, gazing out at us,
and asking the audience to
join her. Everybody sang, with
eyes gleaming. '
"I'm very happy to be with
you to-night for thees show,"
Aigrot said after the first few
songs. And we were happy to
be with her.
Aigrot was the voice of
Edith Piaf in the French film
"La Vie En Rose," and came
to Key West for this special
one-night-only performance to
sing some of Piaf's best-loved
songs. In between them, she
spoke in broken English, mix-
ing up 'sing,' 'song,' 'sang,'
'sung,' and 'she' and 'he' and
'it.' We were charmed.
The last song of the pro-
gramme was the very emo-
tional "Non, je ne regrette de
rien" - 'I regret nothing' in
English. A standing ovation
brought her back for two
songs, including "Milord," the
most rousing of all of the "
songs made famous in the 40s
and 50s by the singer they
called "The Little Sparrow."
I shivered this night. Not
once, or twice, but maybe five
times.
"There are certain things in
my life I'll always remember.
And this is one of them," I
heard a woman say in the
lobby after the concert was
finished. It was that way for
me, too.



I'm not a hundred per-
cent, but I'm pretty sure that
at the Dancing with Our
Island Stars competition last
Sunday at Coral Shores High
School, Brett Ekblom held
Nancy Dunn aloft with the tip
of one index finger and used
his other hand to spin her like
a top. Can.anyone confirm
this???
Ekblom, the 28-year-old
owner of Native. Construction


Contracting, looked like a
young Bruce Jenner, with hair
parted in the middle, and a
great-American-guy smile
pulling up his cheeks. Dunn,
who spent most of her time
not on the stage, but - as. I
alluded to a moment ago -
above the stage, is the owner
of On Your Toes Dance "
Studio. She was the older
woman in this duet, Ekblom's
teacher. It doesn't appear that
the job was so arduous. When
they'd finished dancing the
Cha Cha in the second half of
the production, Dunn
remained on the floor, hug-
ging Ekblom's leg. She didn't
get up for about five minutes,
or until Ekblom, laughing,
reached down with one finger
and pulled her up to him.
"So, Nancy, every girl out
there wants to know: What's it
like?" asked emcee Stu Sax
after that last dance. Dunn
could hnrdilv resnonnl She.


stood with Ekblom, the two
hand in hand, beaming.
Ekblom and Dunn won the
People's Choice award, while
Jack Butler of Mariners
Hospital and Virginia LeNoir
were the judge's pick, getting
the only straight set of 10s for
their electric Hustle. The
whole auditorium exploded.
"Jack, that was real dancing.
That's all I got to say," said
judge Colin Hilary after
they'd finished. Sure was.



Meanwhile, Cuba seems to
be drifting closer to the Keys
every day, and the small chan-
nel between us winnowing.
Soon we will be able to shout
across, and our brethren living
under Communism will hear
us across the way. But what
will those first words be?
Many of those left in Cuba are
nonr and l e~ likely to know

Jil Aigrot sang some -of Edith Piaf's most beautiful songs on
Monday night at the Tennessee Williams Theatre. Aigrot was
the voice of Edith Piaf in the 2007 French- film 'La Vie En Rose,'
which played at the Tropic Cinema last week.

English than the better-educat-
ed who've already left. How
many of us speak Spanish?
How can we speak to one
another if we cannot speak? I
try to learn Spanish in bits.
"A que hora se cierra?"' I
heard the other night at the
outside window at Sandy's
Caf6 in Key West: 'What time
do you close?'
"Nunca," was the answer:
'Never.'
A que hora habre? At what
hour will it open? No one
knows. Maybe what is needed
is for President Obama to
knock, demanding "Habre la
puerta!" Open this door, as
Ronald Reagan demanded:
"Tear down this wall." But let
the door open for Cubans, too,
so that our dollars may not be
used to keep the human spirit
pressed under the thumb of a
wicked regime. Communists
say they want equal distribu-
tion of wealth, but now, in
Cuba, after fifty years of
Communism, there exists a
more unequal distribution of
wealth than in any other coun-
try in our hemisphere. In all of
Latin America. Some feat.

'Stars' burn up the stage


Sold-out house
for third annual
Upper Keys event
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

When the lights went dark
at the Coral Shores Performing
Arts Center on Sunday night,
you could feel the thick antici-
pation hanging in the air. In
just moments there would
appear on the stage a school
principal, a store owner, a
teacher and the proprietor of a
coffee shop. And all would be
moving their bodies in a way
they do normally do. Not at
home, not in front of 500 peo-
ple, dressed in flamboyant cos-
tume. But this night was differ-
ent.
This was the third annual
Dancing with Our Island Stars,
where local "stars" are paired
with dance pros to compete
with other couples doing ball-
room dances.
And like the television show
from which the idea is bor-

Jack Butler and Virginia LeNoir brought down the house with
the hustle, and clinched their win.


rowed, there were three judges,
including Tommye Giacchino,
who, we're told, flew in from
Buenos Aries at 4 in the mom-
ing to be here in the Upper
Keys for this event(!) and also
Colin and Joy Hilary, former
Australian and South Pacific
Latin champions.

David Feder, president of
Islamorada Community
Entertainment - the event spon-
sor - came out in sunglasses,
looking exactly like Bono. And
then came,our emcees, Perri
Johnson and Stu Sax, dressed
in black, calling out: "Ladies
and Gentlemen. Please put
your hands together for the
2009 Dancing with Our Island
Stars!"
The couples danced all
together first, with the pairs
moving to the front of the stage
as their names were called out.
And then the competition
began.
Jack Butler of Mariners
Hospital came out in a tuxedo
with Virginia LeNoir, co-owner
of Club Baila, dressed in a
black bunny suit. They danced
the quickstep, and you could
hardly see them they were so
quick. So perfectly paired.
Bernice Dionne, a star
teacher and cheerleading coach
at Plantation Key School, came
from behind the curtain in a
ravishing pink gown, and
danced the tango as though
she, too, had just come in fresh
from Buenos Aries. Her part-
ner, Jerry LeNoir (wife of
Virginia) dipped her about all
the way to the floor on more
than one occasion.
Then there was Bob
McGlasson, owner of Midway
Caf6 and Coffee Bar, dancing
the mambo with Julie
Cockerham, a dance instructor
at the Joyce Bennett School of
Performing Arts. He has atti-

tude; she's splitting her legs
into his. The audience is lov-
ing it.
"He's a double espresso!"
said one of the emcees as they
waited for the judges to score.
"With a shot of mocha!"
added Cockerham.
Brett Ekblom, president of
Native Construction, took the
stage next, dancing the waltz
with the beautiful Nancy
Dunn, owner of On Your Toes
Dance Studio, to the Journey
song "Open Arms."
"Your lifts are incredible,"
judge Giacchino raved when
they were done.
"She's a very lucky lady to
be in your arms," said judge
Joy Hilary.
Fred Roth of Fred's Beds
showed surprising grace as he
moved his partner, the spirited
Kelly Astin, around the stage
while dancing the foxtrot. He
wore a trench coat, while she
wore a mask. When it was
over, Astin, the principal at
Montessori Island School, told
the emcees that this was the
most challenging experience of
her life.
The last couple to dance
was Shanann Mitchell, owner
of BabyCakes Boutique, and
her partner Theo Derleth, co-
owner with his wife of Theo &
Ganine's Dance Center in


Marathon. They danced the
rumba, with Mitchell sliding
up and down Derleth's leg. "I
don't think it could get any
sexier," said Sax when they
were finished.
After the second round of
dances, after the votes were
counted, after the audience had.
been driven wild, the winners
were announced...
Brett Ekblom and Nancy
Dunn won the People's Choice
award, while Jack Butler and
Virginia LeNoir were the
judge's pick for best overall
dancers.
But it must be said: The
real winners were the ones
who got to sit back and watch
all this for less than the price
of dinner at an Upper Keys
restaurant. Smashing.


Brett Ekblom and Nancy
Dunn were breathless after
dancing the cha cha.

Marathon High School
baseball coach Luis Leal
says he's never.been a part
of a game quite like the
Dolphins' thrilling 15-14
10-inning victory Tuesday
in a slugfest at Mater
Academy Lakes Charter
School.
Nine total home runs;
warm ups and stretching in
the parking lot due to-time
constraints on the field; a
last out made literally one
minute before the teams'
field rental expired; an
eight-run sixth-inning lead
squandered.
This game - scheduled
at the last minute Monday
- had a little bit of every-
thing.
"It was wild," Leal said.
"I've never been a part of a
game with nine home runs.
This was a good size high
school baseball field; every-
one just came out swinging.
You had the feeling that no
lead was safe."
And it wasn't. Marathon
led 11-3 with two outs in the
sixth inning when the
wheels came nearly clean
off.

Conchs lose it against Mater's Lions


Miscues cost
baseball squad
big district loss
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Displaying the shoddy field-
ing and bewildering base-run-
ning it had shown earlier in the
season, the Key West High
School baseball team could
have been mistaken for a com-
edy act Tuesday afternoon in a
6-3 District 16-4A loss to
Mater Academy in Hialeah
Gardens.
For a program with a distin-
guished pedigree - 11 state
championships - the perform-
ance was startling, though
coach Miguel Menendez
stopped short of calling it
embarrassing.
"I think embarrassing is too
strong a word," said Menendez,
in his fourth season as coach.
"Obviously, I was disappointed
that we didn't play to our
potential, but it was just a few
mistakes on defense that killed
us. And base-running wise, we
killed ourselves. We couldn't
overcome the self-inflicted
wounds, and that is what hurts.
That is on me to make sure we
are better prepared and don't
make silly mistakes."
The Conchs, who lost for the
second consecutive year at
Mater, dropped to 7-7 overall
and 3-3 in the district, where
they trail. Monsignor Pace,
Belen Jesuit and Mater. They
had entered the game with five
victories in their last six con-
tests.
The errors came early.
In the first inning, third
baseman Charlie Walker-Yhap
fielded a grounder and threw
wildly to first, allowing two
runners to score. A third then
came in when first baseman
Nolan Thomas, who had
retrieved the ball, made a bad
throw to home plate.
Then in the second inning,
the Lions extended their lead to
6-0, with two of the three runs
scoring when shortstop Frankie
Ratcliff's high throw to the
plate sailed off catcher Joseph
Gandolfo's glove.
The Conchs cut the lead to
6-2 on a home run by Ratcliff
in the third, and then a two-out
RBI single by Walker-Yhap


narrowed the margin to 6-3 in
the fifth. But with Walker-Yhap
at first and Ratcliff on third, the
Conchs decided to try a
delayed steal with third-place
hitter Michael Arencibia at the
plate.
It failed. Ratcliff, who had
broken for the plate and then
stopped, was tagged out after a
rundown. He then slammed
down his helmet. "If Charlie
doesn't stumble, he makes it
easy and Frankie wouldn't have
taken off," Menendez said.
The Conchs' sixth began
promisingly with a walk to
Arencibia. Then he got picked
off first. Two-out singles by
Cole Harrison and Nick
Bertiaux followed before
Gandolfo popped out.
Ratcliff was removed from
the game in the middle of the
sixth after exchanging words


with third-base coach Chris
Valdez. Wednesday morning,
the player apologized to
Menendez.
"It is not the player's place
to talk back to a coach at any



Ratcliff was

removed

from the

game in

the middle

of the sixth



point," Menendez said
Thursday. "I will say this is a
non-issue as everything has


been handled."
Ratcliff's frustration and
anger - helmet-slamming and
glove-flinging - have gradual-
ly mounted during his senior
season as he has tried to carry
the team.
Last spring, he hit over .450
and later signed. to play at the
University of Miami. Most of
this season, his average has
been below .300.
In a phone interview


Wednesday, Ratcliff said he
would try to control his temper.
"When things are going bad,
you can get down and not be
yourself," he said. "I started
slower this season, and every-
body expected a big year from
me. So there's been more pres-
sure on me to do good."
The Conchs, who played
late Friday at Pace, will be at
Westland Hialeah at 1 this
afternoon.

Warriors no match for


the Lady Dolphins


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


An easy 7-0 victory for the
Marathon High School girls ten-
nis team Tuesday set up a Friday
rematch with Carrollton School
- the only team to defeat the
Dolphins this season.
The girls moved to 8-1
Tuesday in convincing fashion,
winning 56 of 62 games and shut-
ting out Westminster Christian
School.
"The [girls] continue to
improve upon early season
results. We have a tough test
Friday against Carrollton, our
only loss, but our players are
committed to improvement and
love showing their progress off
on match day," coach Chris Bull
said before the Friday contest,
results for which were not avail-
able at press time.
No. 1 Marissa Brossard and
No. 2 Angela Farello led the way
against Westminster with 8-0 vic-
tories, while No. 3 Kelsey
Wonderlin (8-3), No. 4 Michelle
Bellevue (8-1) and No. 5 Alana
Vassil (8-1) all won handily.
Vassil, a sophomore, earned her
first win as a Dolphins starter.
Brossard and Farello won No.
1 doubles 8-1, while Michaelle
Rose Bellevue and Marina Kay
Wiatt won No. 2 doubles 8-0.


Meanwhile, the No. 1 doubles
pairing on the boys side is quietly
becoming a solid combination
and could be seeded in next
month's district tournament,
coach Nicole Berger said.
John Danaher and Kerry
Wonderlin earned the boys team's
lone win Tuesday, 8-6, over
Westminster's- top two players.
Berger said she's been emphasiz-
ing doubles play in practice and
the results are beginning to show.
"They're really working
together and talking between
points. They look forward to it
because they understand the
game and they're working well as
a team," she said.
Danaher and Wonderlin lost
No. I and.2 singles, 1-8 and 4-8
respectively, while No. 3 Weston
Wiatt (5-8), No. 4 Jonnie
Lancaster (6-8) and No. 5 Riley
Durkin (2-8) each fell as well.
Lancaster and Ricardo
Dominguez lost No. 2 doubles 2-
8. The boys are 2-6 this season.
The Dolphins are scheduled to
visit St. Brendan on Monday and
Miami Country Day Thursday
before hosting Keys rival Coral
Shores High School in the regular
season finale Friday at 4 p.m. at
the Marathon Community Park.

Dolphin rally falls in 5-3 softball loss


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A few costly mistakes early on
Tuesday cost the Marathon High
School softball team a chance to
beat a solid Monsignor Pace
squad..
The girls turned it around and
made a late-inning rally, but fell
5-3 to the Spartans.
"We came out a little flat and
made a few mistakes that really
hurt us. I thought we turned it
around and played good defense,
but it wasn't enough," coach
Andrea Murphy said.
The Spartans started off the
first with two runs to take an
early lead. A single and a walk
put two runners on base and a
misplayed ball in the outfield
allowed the inning to continue.
Pace made the Dolphins pay with
a two-run triple.
The Spartans tacked on anoth-
er in the second to put the
Dolphins in an early 3-0 hole.
Marathon would respond with a
run in the bottom of the third
inning.
Kelley Struyf hit a triple and


scored on a Michelle McKenna
fielder's choice to the second
basemen. Struyf beat a throw
home and McKenna was tagged
out trying to advance to second
base on the play.
The Spartans made it 5-1 with
unearned runs in the third and
fourth innings. Pace loaded the
bags on a single, hit batsmen and
an error and scored on a sacrifice
fly in the third. In the fourth, a
runner stole second after singling
and eventually scored on an
errant throw to first base. *
The Dolphins scored two runs
in the bottom of the sixth to make
it 5-3. Morgan Longstreth walked
to start the inning and Shelby
Kuck followed with a single. The
Spartans then intentionally
walked Struyf to load the bases.
McKenna hit a sacrifice fly to
score Longstreth and Michelle
Sardina singled home Kuck.
Struyf "had a triple and a sin-
gle, so she was 2-2 and they had
a base open. It was good for
Michelle [McKenna] to step up
and get us a run and Michelle
[Sardina] to drive in another run,"
Murphy said.
A potential Dolphins rally in


the seventh inning was halted
suddenly when Longstreth hit a
sharp grounder to second base.
Alli Heller, who led off the inning
with a base hit, was tagged out in
the base path and Longstreth was
thrown out at first to end the
game.
Senior Megan Gardner and
Heller combined to pitch for the
Dolphins and Murphy said they
did well against a strong Pace
team.
"Generally when we play
stronger teams, I break it out and
Megan and Alli have just enough
contrast that it mixes them up,
Alli pitches low and Megan hits
the outside comer well," Murphy
said.
Longstreth had a solid game
behind the plate, making several
nice catches on pop-ups near the
plate.
Struyf was 2-for-2 at the plate
with an intentional walk, while
Kuck, McKenna, Sardina and
Heller each had one hit.
The Dolphins (8-10) are
scheduled to host Ransom
Everglades today in a weekend
contest at the high school at 7
p.m.

Every starter gets a hit


MARATHON/ From 38

A two-out pop fly that
Yoniel Esquirol or Jake
Sjursen could have fielded fell
in for a hit after each thought
the other would make the play.
That loaded the bases and the
next batter made things inter-
esting - with a grand slam.
An error and a hit batsmen
put two more runners on and
the next batter hit a three-run
homer to make it 11-10. A solo
shot by the very next batter
tied the game.'
But Leal said rather than
lose their composure, the team
got the third out and came off
the field focused and fired up.
"I didn't have to tell them
anything. I've never seen this
team play with that kind of
emotion," he said. "They did-
n't want to lose." But the game
was far from over.
The Dolphins plated ,a run
in the top of the seventh to
take a 12-11 lead. With two
outs in the bottom half, first


basemen Luis Gonzalez could-
n't come up with a low throw
from Justin Kornetti on a rou-
tine grounder, and the tying
run scored.
Sjursen led off the eighth
with a home run to make it 13-
12, but Mater responded with a
RBI single in the bottom half.
After a scoreless ninth, the
Dolphins came to bat in the
1.0th inning. Esquirol reached
base on an error and senior
Toby Eigner hit a two-run
homer to make it 15-13.
That's where it got interest-
ing, Leal said, as Mater came
to bat knowing the bottom of
the 10th would be their last at
bat. The teams had to vacate
the field at 7:30 p.m. and the
hour was drawing near.
Eigner recorded two quick
outs on the mound, but surren-
dered a. solo home run that
made it 15-14. Tyler Roussin
then made the last out on a
ground ball to shortstop to end
the game.
"We got away with a minute
to spare," Leal said, noting the


game would have been
declared a tie- if Mater did not
complete their 10th-inning at-
bat.
Sjursen had an outstanding
day at the plate, going 3-for-6"
with two home runs, a triple,
three runs, scored and three
RBI. Eigner was also 3-for-6,
including the game-winning
two-run homer, three runs
scored and two RBI.
Esquirol was 2-for-5 with
his first varsity home run and
his brother, Doniel, was 3-for-
5 with a double and two stolen
bases.
Luis Gonzalez was 2-for-5
with a double and three runs
scored, Roussin was 2-for-6
with two RBI and Joey
Fernandez was 2-for-6, as
every Marathon starter record-
ed a hit.
The Dolphins (3-8) are
scheduled to host Spanish
River Monday at 4 p.m. at the
high school. Results from a
scheduled Friday game against
Miami Country Day 'were not
available at press time.

Diamond Eagles dominate


ICS powers
past Horeb
and Princeton
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A pair of wins this week put
Island Christian's baseball
Eagles within one win of break-
ing even.
A win Friday at Horeb
Christian could put the Eagles
over the top, said ICS coach
Tony Hammon (results pending
at press time Friday).
"We played a lot of good
teams early in the season but
we're in the stretch now where
we can win a few," he said.
The Eagles were 5-6 heading
into games late this week after
solid wins over Princeton
Christian, 13-2, and Horeb
Christian, 17-4.
But the stretch also included
a Tuesday game the Eagles lost,


17-0, to South Florida power
Brito Private of Miami.
"You know you're in trouble
when the other team's pitcher is
nicknamed Shrek," Hammon
laughed. "That was one of the
biggest kids I've ever seen
playing high school baseball.
And he's a junior.
The Panther pitcher, Daniel
Bolanos, fastballed his way to a
no-hitter against the capable
Eagle lineup. And for good
measure, Bolanos slammed a
home run not only out of the
ICS field but off the school
campus.
"That's never happened,"
Hammon marveled. "It cleared
our day-care center's play-
ground."
ICS starting pitcher Kadian
Carter notched two strikeouts
against the Panthers in the first
inning before Brito started hit-
ting. The Eagle defense did not
commit an error in the game,
Hammon noted.
Earlier, the Eagles made
short work of longtime rival


Princeton Christian in six
innings. Phillip Izaguirre got
the complete-game win with a
12-strikeout three-hitter. He
walked three.
At the plate, Phillip had a
double and two singles with
three stolen bases. Senior out-
fielder Aaron Izaguirre and
catcher Jordan Izaguirre each
tripled and singled before col-
lecting several intentional
walks.
Jordan's three-run triple
sparked the Eagles' four-run
stanza in the fourth.
Jon Cruciger had a two-run
double in the 17-4 win over
Horeb, while eighth-grader
Jimmy Rhyne laid down two
bunts for singles. Aaron
Izaguirre homered, doubled and
tripled.
Jordan Izaguirre and Kalen
Carter combined for aone-hit- -
ter through five innings.
Island Christian hosts Mater
Lakes Academy at 4 p.m.
Monday.


Dolphins visit Canes


CORAL SHORES/ Frorfi38

ing day games are not ended by
darkness, and lets the team avoid
the Keys' daytime heat.
Against Gulliver's capable
pitching staff and standout
defense, the Canes scratched out
their five runs off seven hits,
including junior catcher Jorge
Tomas' three-run homer to left
field in a four-run fourth inning.
That brought the score to 10-
5, but Gulliver added three runs
in the fifth to set the final score.
The Raiders outhit the Canes,
14-7.
Jake Turek, the starting third
baseman, pitched the final two
innings and kept the Raiders
scoreless. Austin Bynum, Bobby
DePaula and Chad White also
pitched against Gulliver (10-3).
Coral Shores held the Raiders
scoreless in the first inning, but
the second was a different story.
Four of the first five hitters sin-
gled, and finished with a home
run. Two walks and a catcher's
interference call did not help. A


strikeout finally ended the 11-
batter stanza.
Coral Shores got on the board
in the third when Jonathan
Rodriguez drew a leadoff walk,
with pinch runner Leni Troncoso
coming around to score on an
error and fielder's choice.
Coral Shores loaded the bases
with one out, but managed only
the one run.
A leadoff double by shortstop
Fabian Placencia started the
Canes' best rally in the fourth.
Austin . Kaile . singled in
Placencia after Turek reached on
an error. Tomas then launched
his three-run home run shot.
In Coral Shores' final three
innings, the Canes got hits from
LeDarius Sanders and Kaile, but
didn't score again.
'Results from a scheduled
Friday trip to Archbishop
Carroll were pending at press
time.
The Hurricanes host
Marathon High School on
Wednesday, time to be
announced.
