Former No. 2 at
Mosquito Control
admits grand theft
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Mike Spoto, the former
second-in-command of the
Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District, on Tuesday
pleaded guilty to felony
grand theft and was sen-
tenced to 90 days in county
jail, plus 30 months proba-
tion, $500 in fines and court
fees, and eight hours of com-
munity service monthly dur-
ing his probation.
Last August, Spoto, 51,
was arrested for misappro-
priating three Mosquito
Control District cell phones
in 2007. He racked up
roughly $5,000 in bills on
them, for which he has since
reimbursed the district.
He was fired shortly after
being charged and was earn-
ing $115,960 at the time. The
Mosquito Control Board
eliminated the superintendent
position in January.
At sentencing Tuesday,
Circuit Court Judge Mark
Jones disagreed with prose-
cutor Mark Wilson, who rec-
ommended Spoto spend one
year and one day in the state
prison system.
Jones said the case fell
short of warranting time in
prison, reinforced by Spoto's
lack of a prior criminal histo-
ry, the loss of his job, "pub-
lic humiliation" and the fact

that he paid restitution,
"which, quite frankly, is not
always the case."
"There is another side to
the story," Jones continued
"One of the most aggravat-
ing factors is you were
placed in a position of trust,


you had a lot of power and
you made a lot of money -
taxpayer money.
"The act that you did is a
serious criminal offense and
I find it especially aggravat-
ing that it took place over an
extended period of time."


Spoto, addressing the
court, said he went through a
"very, very ugly divorce"

He agrees to
3-year deal,
$115K annually
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District
has a new director.
Loveland, Colo., resident
Michael Doyle gave a verbal
commitment to accept the
position Monday after the
board met in Key Largo to
discuss his potential contract.
The entomologist for the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention's Division of
Sector-borne Diseases in Fort
Collins, Colo., will earn
$115,000 per year over three
years and be compensated for
up to $9,500 in moving
expenses. He'll also be eligi-
ble, like all other district
employees, for a 5 percent
annual merit raise.
Doyle, 46, said he has no
firm start date but that he'll
likely begin full-time at the
district in late July.
"But I'll be there before
then to work with budget
issues," he told the Keynoter.
The deal to bring Doyle to
the Keys was held up a bit
after he sought a higher start-
ing salary than the $110,000


per year offered. That deal
was for three years with the
possibility of up to an 8 per-
cent raise, based on perform-
ance, in the second two years.
Doyle wanted compensa-
tion closer to $130,000 with a
larger annual salary, increased
moving-cost reimbursement
or a combination of both.
Chairman Bill Shaw said
Monday he'd discussed the
contract with Doyle on sever-
al occasions.
Before the vote on
$115,000 annually, Shaw said,
"He is willing to come to work
for us on a three-year contract,
with an annual review for
$120,000 [per year] and if we
pay for his actual and invoiced
moving expenses."
A motion by Commissioner
Steve Smith to accept that
offer failed, 4-1, after several
board members raised concern
about the salary.
Commissioner Jack Bridges
pointed out the average mos-
quito control director salary in
Florida is $95,000, though the
cost of living in the Keys is
higher than in all of Florida's
66 other counties.
"We need to keep in mind
what we can afford versus
what we need. I told him I'd
be willing to go to $115,000
per year in spite of the fact

Officials: Use fireworks with caution


Ongoing drought
means risk of
fires starting
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Being surrounded by water
likely will keep authorized
Florida Keys fireworks dis-
plays on the July 4 calendar.
Florida's ongoing drought
is fueling statewide wildfires,
leading many regions to crack
down on private fireworks.
Some Central Florida
counties have even raised the
possibility of canceling civic
Fourth of July fireworks
shows. Final approvals may
not be given until late June.
As for Monroe County, no
additional rules have been
imposed, said Steven
Zavalney, Fire Prevention
Bureau captain with the
county Fire Marshal's Office.
"Most of the community
displays down here are staged
by licensed folks who shoot
fireworks off barges out on
the water," Zavalney said
Tuesday. That makes it less
likely that fireworks could


Expect to see plenty of these on the Fourth of July.Officials
say don't bother trying to do your own show since there
are plenty of big official ones throughout the Keys.


ignite dry vegetation, he said.
"We certainly recommend
that everyone go out to our
community events and enjoy a
nice afternoon with the family
before the fireworks,"
Zavalney said. "We encourage
people not to set off fireworks
on their own, to be sure."
Locally approved pyro-
technic shows in Key West,
Islamorada and Key Largo
all use barges to shoot off
fireworks. Marathon organ-
izers traditionally fire from
Sombrero Beach.
The Big Pine & Lower
Keys Rotary Club hosts a
show at the Sugarloaf
Airport. "We set them off
from the end of the runway
toward the water," said event
coordinator Steve Estes.
In Florida, legal private
fireworks are limited to
"things that do not leave the
ground and do not explode,"
Zavalney said. For example,
sparklers and similar goods
are legal.
But "because of the dry
conditions, people obviously
need to exercise extreme
caution even with
sparklers," Zavalney said.

Chairman cites
superintendent
for brouhaha
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

One week after three
members of the Monroe
County School Board voted
to sanction members of the
Audit and Finance
Committee, board Chairman
John Dick says he's consider-
ing options to challenge the
decision.
Dick was in Puerto Rico
last week and missed the
board meeting, but says he
was called after the session
and heard plenty of com-
plaints about what happened.
"I don't know where the
hell they come off going after
these guys on the Audit
Committee," Dick said.
"Why aren't they mad at the
original mistake? That's
[Superintendent] Joe Burke
and nobody has mentioned
that. If they had done the
thing in the sunshine, we
wouldn't be here."
The issue involves how
Dick facilitated a meeting
between Internal Auditor Ken
Gentile and Stuart Kessler,


chairman of the Audit and
Finance Committee, and
State Attorney Dennis Ward
and Mark Wilson, the coun-
ty's top public corruption
prosecutor.
Gentile requested clarifi-
cation about an apparent vio-
lation of the open-meetings
Sunshine Law during private
contract negotiations
between Burke and Leon
Fowler, then president of
United Teachers of Monroe.
The pair discussed three
furlough days for teachers in
the coming academic year, a
move projected to save an
estimated $705,000 in salary
expenses.
School Board members,
meeting June 14 in Dick's
absence, voted 3-1 to put the
Audit and Finance
Committee on 60-day hiatus
and ordered members to
undergo ethics training, cit-
ing a breakdown in the com-
munications process.
The Audit Committee and
Gentile report directly to the
board rather than directly to
top school administrators.
The public scolding at last
week's board meeting and the
sanctions imposed prompted

NEWS BRIEFS


Scott taps Borglum
as Keys appraiser

Gov. Rick Scott on
Tuesday appointed Karl
Borglum to the post of
Monroe County property
appraiser to replace Ervin
Higgs, who retired on
April 30 after 35 years in
the job.
Scott chose Borglum,
58, of Marathon over for-
mer County Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro and
Assistant Appraiser Scott
Russell, both of whom
also applied.
Borglum, the chief
assistant appraiser under
Higgs, will serve until Jan.
7, 2013; the next appraiser
election, for a four-year
term, is in November
2012.
In his resignation letter
to Scott, Higgs recom-
mended Borglum as his
replacement.
Borglum worked as an
appraiser in Alaska before
working as chief appraiser
from 2002 until 2005 in
Monroe County. He left
for California for one year
but returned in 2006 as
Higgs' top deputy.
Higgs started with the
Property Appraiser's
Office on Dec. 13, 1965,
as the chief deputy to then-
appraiser Joe Allen. Allen
won a seat in the state
House in 1976 and Higgs
was appointed to succeed
him. He was re-elected
every election cycle since.

MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS


City, School Board


apparently reach deal


Cates: Part
of it is giving
district Archer

By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Following a joint public
meeting on Monday, it
appears Key West city offi-
cials and leaders of the
county schools system will
hammer out an agreement to
end contention over the
height of a new Horace
O'Bryant Middle School
and a host of other issues.
Chief among those,
Mayor Craig Cates said, is
the possibility of the Monroe
County School District giv-
ing the city Glynn Archer
Elementary School.
That could reignite
Cates' stalled two-year push
to site a new city hall at the
White Street school; the stu-
dents from Glynn Archer are
scheduled to move into a
new wing at HOB when it's
completed in 2013.
"We were asking for
[School Board members] to
do that, the reason being the
city of Key West originally
built it before there was a
School Board. They're
through with it; we feel they
should just give it back to
the city. If they need a part of


it, they can lease it back for
a $1 a year or some arrange-
ment like that."
Another piece of that,
Cates said is the district
wants to move its bus depot
off Trumbo Point and the
city has space available off
College Road on Stock
Island.
"We're hoping we can
work this out," Cates said
Tuesday. "After last night, I
feel much better. Things
went like I hoped they
would."
Other issues to potential-
ly be included an agreement
are access to school-man-
aged athletic fields for com-
munity-based organizations
and residents, and billing
and concurrency for the
city's stormwater utility.
Cates didn't anticipate a
second joint meeting of the
City Commission and
School Board, but said the
two staffs would likely meet
before bringing back an
agreement for both bodies to
approve in August.
Public criticism has
focused on a 56-foot build-
ing at the HOB campus,
which violates the city's 25-
foot height cap for that zon-
ing district. Whatever the
final deal is, the bottom line
is this: The building won't
be torn down.
On Monday, Super-


intendent Joseph Burke suc-
cessfully argued that the
height violation is allowed
based on an exception con-
sidered in state statute that
removes local oversight for
school sites not increasing in
student capacity by more
than 5 percent.
School Board Chairman
John Dick, noting that he
was pleased with the collab-
orative tone of the meeting,
said there would have to be
some level of consideration
in exchange for Glynn
Archer.
"For me," Dick said,
p'c.ikilll as one person on
the board, I would not be
agreeable to giving Glynn
Archer to the city. I do not
want Glynn Archer to
become an abandoned build-
ing; that's very important
but to give it to the city,
that's not something I'd be
looking to do.
"Sometime, we might
want to move out of the dis-
trict administrative building
at Trumbo Point and I said
moving the offices is not a
problem. What our problem
of course will be: Where do
we put our buses? That's an
issue. If they can find some
property where we can have
our buses and a terminal and
fix them and all that, then
depending..."


Dick puts blame on Burke


From Schools, 1A

Bolduc to resign. School
Board member Ron Martin,
who voted for the 60-day
hiatus and mandatory ethics
class, appointed Bolduc.
"I might have some
recourse," Dick told the
Keynoter Monday, not
going into specifics, but
adding, "We'll see what
happens at the next meet-
ing," scheduled for June 28
at 5 p.m. at Marathon High
School.
The other two School
Board members who
voted for the sanctions:
Vice Chairman Andy
Griffiths and Duncan
Mathewson.
District officials met
with UTM representative
on June 3 in an attempt to
correct the Sunshine Law
violation, but Wilson, in a
written opinion, conclud-
ed that session was not
sufficient to resolve the
issue.
Burke and Fowler have
maintained that Wilson's

opinion is wrong and that
the violation was correct-
ed by holding that meet-
ing.
At this point, it's not
clear how discussions on
the furlough days will
continue.
Burke and the teachers'
union will meet today
from 1 to 4 p.m. at district
headquarters in Key West
for what's being called an
"impact collaborative bar-
gaining" session. It con-
cerns a recent round of
layoffs, which include the
elimination of five full-
time maintenance posts,
plus reduced hours for
another five employees.
UTM President Holly
Hummell-Gorman said via
e-mail, "Not only did the
district unilaterally send
letters to employees
telling them that their
positions were being elim-


inated, but they sent let-
ters to employees chang-
ing the number of hours in
their workday," which
triggers a bargaining ses-
sion per Article 29 of the
school-related personnel
labor contract.
District Chief
Operating Officer, Jesus
Jara, who will take over
for Burke as superintend-
ent at the end of the
month, when Burke starts
a new job in Lee County,
didn't commit to a specif-
ic course of action regard-
ing the furlough days.
"I'm trying to have the
conversation with Holly
and the union to see if we
would have another meet-
ing," Jara said. "I'd like
to sit down and discuss
how we can come to an
agreement. We want to
make sure we have a good

ed price quotes from mov-
ing companies ranging from
$8,700 to $10,200.
Doyle said he'll be busy

but learning the ropes at the
district is his No. 1 priority.
He's making the move with

"I'm definitely looking

said. "Learing what I need

priority. We haven't made
any housing arrangements at
all, but I like to be close to
the office." The district's
two main offices are in Key
West and Marathon.
Doyle interviewed with
the board May 24, the day
after five other candidates
met with commissioners. He

with fireworks


From Fireworks, 1A

"It's a good idea to have
water handy."
Aerial fireworks private-
ly sold are intended to be
used for agricultural purpos-
es, such as scaring off birds
from farms. As of this week,
21 Florida counties in
drought-stricken areas have
warned that extra enforce-
ment will be deployed to
crack down on people who
violate terms of the waiver
that customers sign when
purchasing fireworks in the
state.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission on June 16
banned the use of campfires
"in wildlife management
areas, wildlife and environ-
mental areas and all other


lands it manages."
The Florida Park Service
limits the use of campfires in
Keys parks, but some may be
permitted in approved areas.
Check with rangers at camp-
sites before lighting fires,
said a Park Service spokes-
woman.
Community fireworks in
the Keys on July 4 are
planned:
* In Key West over the
Atlantic Ocean, near the
Casa Marina Resort at 9 p.m.
* At the Sugarloaf Airport
at mile marker 17 at 9 p.m.
* In Marathon at Sombrero
Beach around 9 p.m.
* At Founders Park in
Islamorada at 9 p.m. and at
Holiday Isle Resort.
* Over Blackwater
Sound off Key Largo, near
mile marker 104, at 10 p.m.


MOSQUITO CONTROL BOARD


Lord-Papy goes


off on comptroller


It happens
during talk
about Spoto

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Florida Keys Mosquito
Control Board Commis-
sioner Joan Lord-Papy
lashed out at longtime dis-
trict Comptroller William
Southcott Monday, ques-
tioning his involvement in a
2007 cell-phone fraud case
and bringing up 1994
drunk-driving and con-
trolled-substance charges
against him.
And that brought an
unusual rebuke from her fel-
low commissioners, voting
to distance themselves from
what she said.
It began as the board dis-
cussed what recommenda-
tion it would make to Circuit
Court Judge Mark Jones at
former district Super-
intendent Mike Spoto's sen-
tencing Tuesday on a felony
larceny charge stemming
from the cell phones.
Tuesday, Spoto pleaded
guilty and Jones sentenced
him to three months in jail
followed by two and a half
years of probation for mis-
appropriating three district
cell phones in 2007. He
administered the district's
taxpayer-funded cell-phone
program at the time and
used the phones for person-
al use, racking up roughly
$5,000 in bills.
Spoto was charged in
August 2010 and fired short-
ly after; he was earning
$115,960 at the time. The
board eliminated the superin-
tendent position in January.
Lord-Papy defended
Spoto as a "good employee"
and asked Southcott during
the public meeting who was
in charge of the cell-phone
program when the theft
occurred.
Southcott responded that
Spoto oversaw it and Lord-
Papy then asked whether
Southcott noticed any
change in billing. Southcott
said Spoto told him new
inspectors had been hired,
some phones had been lost
or damaged and that spares
needed to be kept on hand.
"I've been here for a
long time and I saw two
very close friends become


bitter enemies over this,"
Lord-Papy said of Southcott
and Spoto.
Southcott said he and
Spoto were not close
friends, which prompted
Lord-Papy to bring up his
17-year-old arrest.
"Who helped you when
you had the accident on
Flagler Avenue?" asked
Lord-Papy - herself under
investigation for violating
the Sunshine Law that gov-
erns open government. "The
one where you were caught
with drugs."
Southcott, 54, denied at
the meeting he was involved
in an accident on Flagler
Avenue involving drugs.
Tuesday, he said he stood by
his brief Monday comments.
But according to the
Monroe County Clerk's
website, he was charged in
July 1994. There's no men-
tion of an .i'At lclii" but
Southcott was adjudicated
guilty on the DUI charge.
Two controlled-substance
charges were not pursued.
Commissioner Jack
Bridges called for the board
to "disavow" Lord-Papy's
words in an effort to distance
the board from a potential
slander suit. He said her
comments were "out of line."
The board voted 4-0,
with Lord-Papy abstaining,
to renounce her comments.
Meanwhile, the board
voted to recommend that if
Spoto dropped the appeal of
his firing with the Monroe
County Career Service
Council, it would have no
official position on his sen-
tence.
If Spoto refused to drop
the appeal, the board's offi-
cial position was that Jones
adjudicate him guilty. That
would prevent Spoto from
collecting his district pension
through the state retirement
system.
Jones ruled the board's
vote on a sentence recommen-
dation had no bearing on the
case.
The council meets once a
month and hears termina-
tion grievances from former
government employees. It
comprises representatives
from the district, Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority,
Keys Energy Services,
Monroe County
Commission and one at-
large appointee.


Jones: A deterrent


From Spoto, 1A


ing at the newspapers."
"I do take full responsi-
bility for what happened.
I've lost my job over it. I
did pay the restitution. I've
been hurt deeply by it; my
reputation has been beat up
over it. I take absolutely full
responsibility."
Jones noted that his sen-
tence is meant to serve as a
deterrent not only to Spoto,
but the community as a
whole: "If you do this, this
is what's going to happen to
you."
Spoto's attorney, Greg
Davila, called three charac-
ter witnesses to speak on
behalf of his client:
Mosquito Control Board
members Steve Smith and
Joan Lord-Papy, and retired
district Executive Director
Ed Fussell.
Smith lauded some of
Spoto's work as a construc-


tion project manager for the
district. Asked by Jones if he
had an opinion about Spoto
going to jail, Smith said:
"He made a mistake. If
that's the way he has to pay
for it, that's the way it is."
Lord-Papy chalked it up to
a divorce Spoto went through
at the time of the theft.
Fussell praised Spoto's
accomplishments and said
the criminal matter could've
been avoided if the phone
issue had been discovered in-
house in a more timely fash-
ion.
"If the bills had been
audited as they should have
been by our finance depart-
ment, any irregularity in
this could've been picked
up within a month or two
and this could've been
brought to my attention, it
could've been brought to
Mr. Spoto's attention, and it
could've been corrected
very, very quickly."


LEGISLATURE


Saunders lauds

pension lawsuit


News Service of Florida

Legislative Democrats
on Monday applauded the
state's teacher's union and
other labor groups that sued
over the new law requiring
government workers to pay
into their retirement plans.
The Florida Education
Association sued earlier in
the day to block the law,
passed by the Legislature
and signed by Gov. Rick
Scott earlier this spring.
The unions say it's essen-
tially a breach of contract,


requiring a tax on the take-
home pay of teachers they
hadn't agreed to when doing
earlier collective bargaining.
"I applaud the Florida
Education Association for
bringing a legal challenge to
stop the 3 percent income
tax on teachers, school
employees, police officers,
firefighters, and other work-
ers that has been imposed
by Republican legislative
leaders and Gov. Scott,"
said House Democratic
Leader Ron Saunders, a
Democrat from Key West.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Indecision shows


village clueless

Sewer mandate won't go away,
yet Islamorada officials still
won't commit to wastewater plan

You must remember the old childhood game of
a daisy with petals being plucked to the refrain:
"She loves me, she loves me not."
The practice originates in France, where it was
a popular garden game played by young roman-
tics in the early 1800s. But the newest version
comes courtesy of the Islamorada Village
Council, which puts a whole different spin on
guessing games.
Earlier this month, the council sent a pretty
strong rejection note to the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District, offering $3.5 million paid
over 10 years to hook up to Key Largo's sewer
plant. This, after Key Largo's sewer board said it
would cost $11.5 million paid up front.
Islamorada's low-ball offer brought a quick
RSVP - no thanks - as the Key Largo board
voted 3-1 to end further negotiations with the vil-
lage.
Then came a special Thursday Village Council
meeting and a change of heart, asking Key Largo
to reopen talks over a shared system. But is it
really a change of heart or just so much more
obfuscation disguised as action?
These on-again, off-again talks about
Islamorada contracting with Key Largo to avoid
the cost of building more stand-alone sewer plants
have been dragging on for years.
As council seats change, the woo versus woe-
is-me grows tiresome.
Even Village Councilman Dave Purdo said the
$3.5 million counter was a slap in the face. "All
we did was embarrass them with that offer."
A frustrated Plantation Key resident, Donna
Juriaco, was so fed up she penned a letter to the
editor, published in Saturday's Keynoter.
"There once was a time when I would defend
the Islamorada Village Council. That time has
passed," she wrote. "The council refuses to build
any sewage plants that are proposed for any rea-
son (tennis courts was a good one)."
For those watching all this, the twists and turns
have become tiresome.
Skeptics believe a Village Council majority
simply hopes the state's sewer mandate goes
away. They took comfort from last year's Cabinet
meeting where the 2010 deadline for compliance
was moved to December 2015.
Buying time by dragging your heels is one way
not to commit to cleaning up waste. But the
Village Council has run out of petals to pluck
from this loves-me, loves-me-not game with Key
Largo.
Juriaco got it right in her pained letter: "The
council has given nothing but lip service to any
ideas that have been proposed. Please make a
decision - pipe sewage to Key Largo, build
plants in the village or just say no plants without
grants. Just give us some type of direction that
lasts longer than the next meeting."
We couldn't say it any better than that.

Chamber under-rated
Regarding the article ii.,ri, for the
buck for chamber work?" of June 18, I
feel compelled to write to defend the
Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce.
As a visitor to Marathon for more than
40 years who recently became a perma-
nent resident, I have used the chamber's
services in a number of ways. As a
tourist, I stopped in to pick up brochures
on local attractions and to sign up for the
chamber's e-mail list. As an out-of-town
job seeker, I used the chamber's Web site
to assist with my search for employment.
Now, as an employee of a chamber busi-
ness member, I regularly attend their
well-organized and popular events.
The article in question makes no men-
tion of the chamber's fabulous Web site, a
one-stop shop for everything Marathon.
Daniel Samess and his staff do an excellent
job of maintaining and updating the site.
Because the Web site is so compre-
hensive, there is little need to call the
chamber for information - everything is
available with a few clicks of a mouse.
Could that be the reason why the number
of telephone calls to the chamber has
been decreasing over the years? If so,
doesn't it seem odd to criticize an organ-
ization for becoming more user-friendly
and efficient?
The article also fails to describe the
outstanding support that the chamber pro-
vides its business members. Members
receive frequent e-mails and mailings
about chamber activities, including free
listings on event calendars, members-only

Close public schools
Re: The financial problems facing our
public schools as they are currently oper-
ated. The real solution is to shut down
our schools. There isn't a single subject
in grades one through 12 that can't be
taught and learned off a computer screen.
Today's students go to school whether
they want to be there or not. Only about a
third do; the second third goes along for
the ride and the last third, I'll let the read-
ers figure out where they are coming
from.
One can make the case that at least
our schools do offer the students the
opportunity to score drugs and hit on the
opposite sex. To finance this charade,
every year millions of Americans are
taxed billions whether or not they have
children.
It may strike someone as shocking,
but in this day and age, we can get by
without grades one through 12. Billions
of dollars would be returned to the pri-
vate economy and the parasitic grip of
teacher unions and administrators would
be broken forever.
Should America not be ready for a
society without grades one through 12 in
schools, virtually overnight thousands of
private schools would open. Within three
years, the bad ones would be gone, with
only quality schools surviving and pros-
pering. And who will pay for these
schools? Only the quality students
iikli'lii- not the sucker taxpayer.

discounts, promotional offers, fundrais-
ers, talks, luncheons and so much more.
Not to mention the monthly Business
After Hours, where members can mingle
and network in a relaxed setting.
Having been an active member of a
chamber of commerce in a similarly sized
community in upstate New York, I am
continually amazed at how much the
Marathon chamber, with a considerably
smaller staff, benefits its members.
The most glaring omission from the
article is the chamber's participation in
the annual Original Marathon Seafood
Festival, an event that not only draws

Battle benefits nonprofit
Last month, Heron-Peacock
Supported Living was one of many
local teams participating in the third
annual Battle in the Bay dragon-boat
races in Marathon. The event was
well organized and well attended,
drawing competitors and spectators
from throughout Monroe County and
beyond.
Through this event, the Heron-
Peacock team raised more than
$10,000 to help support our mission
of providing housing, support and
hope to those with mental illness.
We would like to thank event
organizer Karen Bowers along with
all our paddlers and sponsors. We are
very grateful for the continuing sup-
port of Mandy Bowers and the
event's top fundraiser, Dave Condra.
A special thanks to Melissa Grady
and the team at Centennial Bank,
Office Depot and Marathon Citgo for
their help in making this a successful
event. It was a wonderful day of fun
and excitement for all.

Keep up the coverage
I thought the June 18 coverage in
the Keynoter of the recent events
concerning the Monroe County
School Board, especially with


tourists from all over the world but also
provides much-needed funds for local
not-for-profit organizations.
Marathon is extremely fortunate to
have such an effective chamber of com-
merce. Its staff, board of directors and
volunteers are hard-working, friendly and
welcoming to visitors and businesses
alike. Those who criticize this organiza-
tion would be better off showing their
gratitude for an entity that is such a vital
part of Marathon's past, present and
future success.

ISLAMORADA


Village passes $20M assessment


But it's still
not clear what
system will be
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Owners of single-family
homes and condominium
units in Islamorada can expect
to get a bill for almost $3,200
this fall to help pay for a
future sewer system -
whether it's all in the village
or the plant is in Key Largo.
The assessment, passed June
9, will raise $20 million for the
wastewater system, which esti-
mates have said could cost as
much as $150 million.
Tallahassee engineering
firm Government Services
Group calculated the assess-
ment for the village. Camille
Tharpe, the company's senior
vice president, gave the five-
member village council three
options - one that would raise


$60 million, one that would
generate $35.5 million and the
$20 million assessment.
With the $60 million
option, house and condo own-
ers would each pay $9,588;
with the $32 million option, it
would be $5,673.
The council voted 5-0 for
the $20 million option.
Councilman Don Achenberg
originally wanted the $32 mil-
lion assessment but compro-
mised so the vote would be
unanimous.
Homeowners have the
option of paying the entire
$3,196 assessment at once or
in annual payments of $256
for 25 years at 4 percent inter-
est, for a total of $6,400.
The assessment will be
used to pay some of the costs
to design, build, operate and
finance a centralized waste-
water system for the village's
four keys. Only one neighbor-
hood on Plantation Key now
has sewers and a wastewater
treatment plant.


This isn't the first time
Islamorada has assessed prop-
erty owners for sewers.
The Village Council passed
a $21.8 million assessment in
2009 to pay for the North
Plantation Key sewer system.
Under that assessment, each
homeowner in the village paid
about $4,692, while condo
owners were assessed about
$1,328. Opponents cited the
difference as a chief reason to
get rid of the assessment, which
the council repealed a year later.
Key Largo's independent
wastewater district assessed
single-family homes and con-
dominiums $5,200 each to
build its system. It also charges
users a monthly fee for facility
costs and a water-use charge.
Property owners also have to
pay contractors to install lateral
connections from homes to
sewer pits located at property
borders, which can cost roughly
$1,000 to $3,000.
This time, Islamorada will
assess condo units and single-


family homes the same amount,
which has angered some condo-
minium owners, who say their
units do not use as much water
as single-family houses.
A group of condominium
owners hired Tavernier attor-
ney John Jabro to represent
them in their struggle to be
assessed based on actual
water use and not so-called
equivalent dwelling units.
Meanwhile, it's not clear if
the village will build its own
treatment plants or pay the Key
Largo Wastewater Treatment
District to pipe the village
sewage to Key Largo's plant.
On June 13, the Key Largo
board voted to end negotia-
tions with Islamorada over
startup costs. Key Largo
wants $11.5 million up front
while the village has offered
$3.5 million over 10 years.
Four days after Key Largo
ended talks, the Village
Council voted to ask Key
Largo to reopen them. So far,
there has been no response.

Council OKs


airport referendum


Vote will be
in November
or January

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Council
members will review word-
ing next week for a referen-
dum asking city voters if
they want commercial air
service at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
Councilman Pete
Worthington has been push-
ing the nonbinding vote,
saying residents can send a
message to Monroe County
that the Middle Keys need
commercial service. The
county owns the airport.
"It's basically a real sim-
ple question: Is it important
for the county to support
commercial air service for
the taxpayers of the commu-
nity?" Worthington said at
June 14's council meeting.
The referendum would be
either during this year's City
Council election in
November or the presiden-
tial primary next January.
Worthington said he
came to the Middle Keys in
1973 when Marathon had
regular commercial service.
But the city's failure to sup-
port an airline in recent
years.
"I'm a little bit frustrated
talking to people in the busi-
ness community. [County
Commissioner David Rice]
made a valiant effort and got
Delta in here and they were
here for six months, and
mysteriously pulled out,"
Worthington said.
Rice helped raise a com-


munity match so the county
could secure a $750,000
Small Community Air
Service Grant through the
U.S. Department of
Transportation to subsidize
Delta Airlines in 2007. Delta
provided service to Atlanta,
but left within five months,
citing runway restrictions.
Cape Air flew a
Continental Connection to
Fort Myers during the 2009
tourist season, but declined
to continue service when
local governments didn't
support a subsidy.
Councilman Mike
Cinque said airline subsidies
for small-town airports are
common, but that voters
would likely not support a
tax for that purpose.
"I don't believe an airline
can survive in Marathon
without a subsidy. Small
communities are subsidized
all over the country," he
said.
As he has in the past,
Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay
raised concern with the ref-
erendum. He said he feels
it's too vague.
"I can assure you, unless
we ask the question more
specifically, it's a little
meaningless. If we can't get
[Transportation Security
Administration] screening or
get an airline to go some-
where meaningful as
opposed to Fort Myers, I
don't think [with] two air-
ports within 50 miles and the
population we have in the
Keys it's going to be suc-
cessful," Ramsay said.
The council is scheduled
to meet again June 28 at
5:30 p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center.

Boulevard to get

a little brighter


Street lights
going in along
bicycle path

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Nighttime joggers and
bicyclists will have a much
clearer path on Marathon's
Aviation Boulevard in the
near future.
Despite concerns from
some members, the City
Council has voted to install
eight new street lights on the
bike path running parallel to
the road behind Florida
Keys Marathon Airport.
The city will also take
control of two existing pri-
vately owned lights on
Aviation. That makes a total
of 12 after the Florida Keys
Electric Cooperative
installed two test lights in
February, when several
neighborhood residents
complained the path is too
dark at night.
At the .iiiin .l s June 14
meeting, Vice Mayor Dick
Ramsay pushed for the
lights and said it will cost




IrChiI.Glde'D


between $12 and $15 per
month to operate each one.
"From a safety standpoint
it's a good investment," he
said.
Mayor Ginger Snead and
Councilman Rich Keating
eventually voted for the
lights, but voiced concern
about adding costs in a tight
budget year.
"At face value, it's not a
lot of money, but when you
start adding little things up,
they become big things,"
Keating said.
Snead said residents of
other streets and neighbor-
hoods such as Coco Plum,
15th Street and Sombrero
Boulevard might now start
requesting more lights.
"We haven't looked at the
whole city," she said. "You
start adding on and come
budget time, we're saying
we need to cut the budget."
Electric Cooperative
board member Mike Puto
said the Aviation lights
would be in place within a
week of the city making a
formal request. There is no
cost to install them.
According to Ramsay's
figures, all 12 lights could
cost up to $2,100 per year.
City Manager Roger
Hernstadt calculated $3,300
at $22 per light.
"We don't have a specific
line item for this, but $3,300
isn't an item we couldn't
work to fund," he said.

Clemons showed his love for Keys


Autobiography
includes lots of
local references

Keynoter Staff

While music lovers every-
where mourn the passing of
part-time Marathon resident
Clarence Clemons, there
don't seem to be any plans, at
least right now, for any kind
of memorial service in the
Keys for the Big Man.
Sax player extraordinaire
Clemons, 69, for nearly 40
years Bruce Springsteen's
No. 2 man in the E Street
Band, died Saturday, a week
after having a stroke at his
condo on Singer Island in
Palm Beach County.
Clemons was well known


in the Keys for playing gigs at
various bars, sitting in with
whatever bands were playing.
They include the Schooner
Wharf in Key West; the Brass
Monkey Lounge, Castaway,
Dockside Lounge and the
Hurricane Grille in Marathon;
and Woody's, the Lorelei and
( ,Ic., Lodge in Islamorada.
But in the Keys, his heart
was in Marathon. His Stirrup
Key home overlooks Florida
Bay. He was a sponsor of
Capt. Diego Cordova's flats
boat, Flat Out; the two met
about 10 years ago during a
Redbone fishing tournament.
Clemons' 2009 autobiog-
raphy, "Big Man: Real Life
and Tall Tales," has a chapter
called "Marathon Key." In it,
he writes following back
surgery:
"Most of my time lately


has been spent in Florida
healing. It's a slow process
but I'm doing well. I feel
strong every day and look
forward to dancing across the
stage again on the next tour.
As I write this, I'm sitting on
my porch looking out at the
bay toward the horizon where
the ocean meets the sky."
The book also has a chap-
ter called "Looking Back
from Islamorada." That
recounts his chance meeting
with singer Jimmy Buffett,
who was signing books at an
Islamorada bookstore, likely
Hooked on Books.
"I had wandered in here
after having lunch at Manny
and [Isa's], which was prac-
tically next door. I had a
Cuban sandwich and conch
fritters. I felt good after
lunch and I thought I'd go


buy a new book and spend
the afternoon reading."
He went into the book-
store and saw a bunch of
Parrottheads.
"I walked up to the head of
the line and waited for Jimmy
to notice me. It's very hard
not to notice me. Especially in
a tiny Florida bookstore a few
feet off the highway."
"' You'll have to get in
line with everybody else,
sir,' said Jimmy when he
finally looked up. 'I don't
think so,' I said. 'I don't
think so either,' said Jimmy,
smiling."
" 'Big Man! Look every-
body, it's Clarence Clemons.'"
"The folks in line smiled.
Two big stars for the price of
one in a very unlikely set-
ting. Well, one big star and
me. They applauded."

Former firm rehired for beach cleaning


It replaces
Beachcomber
after damage
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The city of Marathon has
cut ties with a local beach-
cleaning company two weeks
after staff raised concerns
over poor performance.
Richard Tompkins,
owner of Beachcomber of
the Florida Keys LLC,
caused $11,425 worth of
damage to wetlands and
trees at Coco Plum Beach.


Tompkins' main job was
to remove seaweed from
Coco Plum and Sombrero
beaches, but City Manager
Roger Hernstadt said excess
seaweed was piling up behind
a dune line and beyond a
mangrove area at Coco Plum.
Tompkins damaged some
wetlands and clipped some
of the trees while moving his
equipment back and forth to
where the seaweed was
stored. The state Department
of Environmental Protection
was notified and slapped the
city with an $11,425 mitiga-
tion bill.
On June 14, the council
voted 4-1 to hire Beachcomber


predecessor Universal Beach
Services to perform beach-
cleaning services in the inter-
im. Community Services
Director Susie Thomas said
the Delray Beach-based firm
held the contract from 2001
through 2007.
"They were one of the
bidders in the last [request
for proposals] and [their
contract] will be at their bid
amount, which was $79,000
annually," she said.
Several council members
advocated bringing the serv-
ice in-house.
"I would say let's look
into all aspects of taking
over the work ourselves.


During budget season, I
would love to discuss what it
would cost," Mayor Ginger
Snead said.
Councilman Pete Worth-
ington voted against hiring
Universal, saying, "I'm not
happy with the way the
beach was being taken care
of back in" 2006 and 2007.
Thomas countered that the
city had no issues with
Universal's performance.
The city hired Tompkins'
company in late 2008, giv-
ing it a two-year deal to
clean city beaches. It was for
$60,000 one year and
$63,000 the next, with a one-
year option.


MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS


Schools a step closer to IB designation


Push is on
for rigorous
study program
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The principals at all three
Florida Keys public high
schools have been notified
that beginning Sept. 1, they
can start billing their institu-
tions as "candidate ,.ln *,Il
in the academic rigorous
International Baccalaureate
Diploma Programme.
The worldwide curricu-
lum standard, administered
and overseen by the IB
organization in Geneva,
Switzerland, is divided into
three units: The Primary
Years Programme for stu-
dents kindergarten through
fifth grade; the Middle Years
Programs for students sixth
through 10th grade; and the
Diploma Programme for
upper classmen.


In addition to a generally
higher expectation of mas-
tery and coursework, plus
community service, critical
thinking and interdiscipli-
nary study, IB places a
strong emphasis on a for-
eign-language component.
Depending on the partic-
ular college or university the
student plans to attend, IB
completion and an assess-
ment score of 5 or higher out
of a total 7 can make the stu-
dent eligible to receive col-
lege credits that count
toward their degree.
But there's still plenty to
do for the Monroe County
School District to be accept-
ed into the International
Baccalaureate program.
Jeanne Sanford, who
coordinates the district's
push to become an IB dis-
trict - the first in the state
- called the candidacy
authorization "the next step
in the process" to Marathon,
Coral Shores and Key West
high schools becoming offi-


cial IB World Schools.
"This is the result we
were looking for," she said.
"We're on our way."
Now, the high school prin-
cipals and teachers will begin
to write an IB curriculum and
continue training in prepara-
tion for another application
due next spring, followed by
a site visit in fall 2012.
If the authorization con-
tinues to progress, Sanford
said, the high schools could
begin offering IB classes to
10th- and llth-graders for
the 2013-14 school year.
The Diploma Programme
requires study in each of six
areas that contain a variety
of academic topics chosen
by each school. Those areas
are language, second lan-
guage, experimental sci-
ences, arts, math and com-
puter science, and individu-
als and societies.
There's also a 150-hour
public service and a 4,000-
word research essay. All IB
Diploma Programme stu-


dents have to take a class
called "Theory of
Knowledge," a discussion-
based class that explores the
underlying concepts and
interconnectedness of vari-
ous academic topics.
Sanford said the next step
is to start training teachers
for the Middle Years
Programme:
"We're planning that
training for Aug. 16 and Aug.
17 at Marathon High School.
That's going to allow any of
our middle schools that want
to move in the direction
toward authorization to get
their folks trained without
leaving the district."
Training has been paid
for out of federal Title Two
professional development
funds and from money won
during the federal Race to
the Top education reform
competition. Once outside
funding dries up, it would
take more than $100,000 per
year to maintain just the
Diploma Programme.

Deposition set in Sawyer theft case


Former housing
chief charged
with theft

By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Discovery continues in
the felony grand-theft case
against Norma Jean Sawyer,
the former executive director
of a nonprofit housing group
in Key West who's accused
of stealing more than
$90,000 in public money.
Assistant Monroe County
State Attorney Mark Wilson,
who prosecutes cases


involving public officials,
said he expects the defense
to request another continu-
ance from Circuit Court
Judge Mark Jones in a pretri-
al conference set for June 30.
Wilson said he is plan-
ning to take part in deposi-
tions scheduled for July 15;
among those being deposed
is Peter Rosasco, the city of
Marathon's finance director
and an accountant for the
former Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust,
which Sawyer ran.
"Aside from that, I'm
ready to go and have been
for some time," Wilson said.
Sawyer's Land Trust,


with the nonprofit Southern-
most Homeless Assistance
League acting as administra-
tor, applied on Nov. 10,
2006, for a grant from the
state Department of Children
and Families to construct
Land Trust housing for
homeless people at 307 Julia
St. DCF officials subse-
quently approved and gave
$712,375 to the Land Trust.
Then, prosecutors allege,
Sawyer asked for and
received $60,000 from the
city of Key West's Tax
Increment Fund to reimburse
the Land Trust for expenses
that were funded by the DCF
grant.


Sawyer, 59, was arrested
in July 2010 and is free on a
$20,000 bond.
In addition to the Land
Trust, Sawyer owned and
operated the Evergreen
Mortuary in Bahama
Village, but that has since
closed and slipped into fore-
closure, Wilson said.
"She very generously
paid herself rent to have her
BCCLT office inside her
own funeral home," Wilson
said. "My suspicion is that
some of the money that did-
n't go in to the SHAL project
ended up in the funeral home
someplace. That's my specu-
lation."


I've left the Guidance Care Center,
but I'm still here to serve my patients
in my private practice.

NICE CATCH AT THE 409


FOOTBALL

Still on sideline,

Leach pens a book


This past weekend
was tough for dolphin
anglers since most of
the catches were small,
but on June 14,
Shannon Jeffers, 14, of
Davie landed this nice
20-pounder while
fishing with her dad
Jim on his boat
'Fishlips.'The fish took
15 minutes to boat at
the 409 Hump.The
tackle was a Penn TLD
50 with 50-pound test
line and the bait was
ballyhoo.The Jeffers
family owns a home on
Lower Matecumbe Key.


FISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS



Head far offshore




for the big dolphin


Former coach,
now Key Wester,
to tell all
McClatchy Tribune

And so the pirate returned
to landlocked Lubbock,
Texas, but this time to offer
his penmanship, not his
sworn testimony.
Mike Leach, the former
Texas Tech head football
coach who lost his job early
last year in a media and legal
maelstrom and then moved to
Key West to figure out what's
next, arrived at a Lubbock
bookstore Sunday to sign
copies of his upcoming book,
"Swing Your Sword: Leading
the Charge in Football and
Life."
The book's title plays off
Leach's famed fascination
with pirates and, according to
a news release from the
book's publisher, its 272
pages delve into Leach's per-
sonal take on his bitter split
with Texas Tech in late 2009
and early 2010.
It also "shares a wealth of
campfire stories, rants, and
dissertations - personal
tales that show how the mind
of Mike Leach operates,"
according to the announce-
ment by Diversion Books.
Much of the interest in the
book, no doubt, is fueled by
what Diversion calls Leach's


Sscan-
dalous" fir-
ing from
Tech in late
December
2009 after a
player
accused his
coach of
LEACH confining
him to a shed after the player
complained of a concussion.
Leach proclaimed his
innocence and sued the
school. His most recent
known visit to Lubbock was
for sworn testimony last
March.
The book's release will
come several months after
an Amarillo, Texas, appel-
late court overturned a
judge's decision and grant-
ed Tech legal immunity as a
state institution, effectively
snuffing out Leach's deeply
entrenched and public legal
brawl with the school.
His lawyers vowed to
fight on - both in the
Texas Supreme Court and
all the way up the power
ladder to the state's
Legislature - as Leach
struggles to find a new
coaching position from his
new home in Key West.
A new post at the
University of Maryland
appeared all but certain
early this year after several
reported interviews, only
for the university to pull out
at the last minute.


Lots of small
ones are being
caught, released

Calm
summer
condi-
tions
t i o n s
prevail,
which
bodes
well for
offshore
fishing.
But
you need
Chris Johnson to go out
at least
20 miles in the Middle Keys
to find dolphin of a
respectable size. There were
several caught over the
weekend in the mid-20-
pound class.
Closer inshore, the majori-
ty of the dolphin are 19 inches
and smaller. You'll do a lot of
releasing before you put a
decent catch together.
While you're offshore,
keep an eye out for floating
debris holding wahoo as well
as blackfin tuna up to about 20
pounds around the humps.
The mutton snapper bite
on the wrecks has been very
good of late. There are lots of
fish ranging from five to six
pounds all the way up to 20
pounds being taken through-
out the Keys. While live baits
are preferred, the muttons will
also take dead baits such as a
deboned ballyhoo.
On the reef, the yellowtail
snapper action has been some-
what spotty. When good cur-
rent conditions exist, the fish-
ing has been quite good. But
when there is no current, the
larger flag yellowtails and
midsize, 16- to 18-inch fish
can be very finicky.
However, yellowtail fish-
ing on the patch reefs has been
consistent for keeper-size fish.
So if it's dinner you're after,
head to the patches.
The night mangrove snap-

up. The bite begins an hour or
so after sunset. These man-
groves are larger specimens in
the three- to six-pound range,
with the occasional seven- and
eight-pounders mixed in for
good measure.
We're still getting a few
reports of tarpon biting around
the bridges in the Middle
Keys, while the action in Key
West Harbor continues to be
very good.
Shallow-water catch-and-
release shark fishing is red
hot, with the fish getting larg-
er and more aggressive with
each passing week.

Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island
Lure Charters out of Captain
Hook's Marina in Marathon,
reports that although catching
was slower during the full
moon, the reef produced many
yellowtail snapper, including
some flags over 21 inches. His
anglers also caught mutton
snapper up to 15 pounds.
Yzenas says the dolphin
bite was good offshore some
20 to 35 miles, with fish com-
ing in at more than 20 pounds.
Father and son Bob and
Chris Keiling from Cape
Coral had the thrill of their


lifetime fishing with captains
Howard Kelley and Zach
Willis aboard the Papa Pip's
out of Captain Pip's Marina
and Hideaway in Marathon.
After a day of catching
dolphin in the five- to 25-
pound range, the duo set out
for more offshore fishing on
day two. They caught more
dolphin, blackfin tuna and a
beautiful blue marlin.

ISLAMORADA


Disoriented 300-pound


turtle takes dip in pool


It apparently
was distracted
by home's light

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
The female trespasser in
the pool was naked, except
for her shell.
Residents at an ocean-
front property on Lower
Matecumbe Key awoke
Sunday morning to find an
unexpected guest in the pool
- a large sea turtle, appar-
ently a loggerhead.
"She was lively, swim-
ming around in a beautiful
pool," said Lt. Glenn Taylor
of Islamorada Fire Rescue, a
shift leader who coordinated
the rescue.
The turtle, weighing
more than 300 pounds,
apparently dug two nests on
a nearby beach and wound
up going inshore rather than
back out to sea. It was a
"false crawl," with no eggs
laid in the nest.
Taylor and four Islamorada
rescue trucks responded to the
scene near mile marker 77 a
little after 7 a.m.
"We only had one or two
people per truck, and I didn't
know how many people or

from the pool.


what equipment we were
going to need," Taylor said.
"We wound up using gear
from a couple of different
trucks."
Firefighters used two
pikes - long poles topped
with hooks - and a tarp to
fashion a makeshift net.
Two department mem-
bers, wearing their work
clothes, waded into the pool
and used the net to guide the
turtle toward stairs at the
pool's shallow end.
"It took some doing,"
Taylor said. "She was a very
powerful girl who definitely
had her own mind."
Six firefighters on the
scene and two residents of
the home helped the turtle
out of the pool and put her

on the right path to an
oceanic return.
"She was pretty stressed
out by then and took a few
moments to rest," Taylor
said. "Then she headed into
the water. We all watched
her swim away, and every-
body was smiling."
Loggerhead sea turtles -
the most common species in
the Keys - tend to nest
from late April to late
October in the Keys, said Jo
Ellen Basile, manager of the
Turtle Hospital in Marathon.
After nesting, they usually
head back into the sea
attracted by the moonlight.
"It's almost certain that if
she went the wrong direction,
it was because she was dis-
oriented by the lighting"
around the house, Basile
said. "In this case, she proba-
bly crawled toward the lights
at the pool and splash."
A manager at the Conch
Key Cottages found a turtle
beneath one of the units last
week, Basile said. When
sand blocking the turtle was
removed, the female made
her way back to the water.
"In daylight, they go
straight to the water," Basile
said.

ied the Battle of the Atlantic
over the past three summers.
This year, the focus is on the
Battle of Convoy KS-520.
The convoy of 19 ships
and five military escorts left
Hampton Road, Va., on July
14, 1942 and was sailing
south to Key West to deliver
cargo to aid the war effort
when it was attacked the next
day off Cape Hatteras by
German submarine U-576,
according to NOAA informa-
tion.
Convoy KS-520 fought
back, with an American war-
ship ramming the U-boat
while the U.S. Navy dropped
depth charges that sunk the
submarine.
Finding the U-boat and a
Nicaraguan tanker it sunk in
a torpedo strike is one of the
goals of the mission.
"Two sites, the U-576 and
the Bluefields, have never
been discovered," expedition

New Yorker's

sauce creates

big appetite

By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@MiamiHerald.com

Hot-dog junkie Joe Cachia
calls his healthy homemade
onion relish a Ic.i. ii .i, ajar."
Supermarket Guru founder
Phil Lempert named it one of
the best new food products of
2010.
And Whoopie Goldberg,
who tasted it on the popular
ABC talk show "The View,"
exclaimed: "That's spicy.
Whoooo! ... If you like spice,
this is for you."
For the past 18 months,
when Cachia is not delivering
floral arrangements for his
wife's Islamorada flower
shop, the 60-year-old retired
Brooklyn construction worker
has been following his culi-
nary dream with the launch of
The Original New York Joe's
Onions.
It's the culmination of a
15-year passion that began
during lunch breaks from
building schools in New York
City.
Cachia and two co-work-
ers fueled their hearty
appetites by eating hotdogs,
sausages and gyros from
numerous street vendors.
While doing so, they searched
for the perfect tomato-based
onion topping.
"Some were too spicy and
some were not spicy enough,"
Freddy Policaro said of the
trio's quest. "One day, Joe
said: 'Freddy, there has got to
be a way to make the onions
just the way I like them.' He
began experimenting at
home."
After more than a dozen
versions cooked up in his
modest kitchen, Cachia came
up with what his buddies
thought was a winner.
But it was not until retiring
and moving to Islamorada that
Cachia found himself with the
time to turn his passion into a
business.
In December 2009, he hired
Clearwater-based FoodLaunch


Miami Herald photo by CAMMY CLARK
Joe Cachia perfected his onion relish in NewYorkand now is selling it nationally from his


company based in Islamorad

- with the slogan "Recipe to
Retail, Product to Profit" - to
help him come up with a name
and brand strategy.
It took several months to
find a manufacturer - Stage
Coach Sauces, of Palatka -
that could handle the process-
ing of long strips of onions
and was willing to start with
small volume. On September
24, the first jar of Joe's Onions
was produced. In October,
Joe's Onions was Stage Coach
Sauces' client of the month.
Cachia hired California-
based products consultant Tim
Bush to help him get the fin-
ished product onto major store
shelves in the super competi-
tive food marketplace.
"Failure is the rule when it
comes to new food products,"
said Lempert, the Supermarket
Guru, who analyzes the food
industry and its trends.
Of about 16,000 new food
products introduced in the
United States each year, only
about 1,500 make it to the
shelves of supermarkets and
survive at least two years, he
said.

Success likely
But the tangy and spicy
New York Joe's Onions has
several things going for it that
could result in beating the
odds and having a long shelf


life: Good taste, a unique
niche, versatility in use. And
it's healthy (low fat, low sodi-
um and only 20 calories per
tablespoon).
"When I evaluate a prod-
uct, taste is always most
important," said Lempert,
who gave it a 30 out of 30 for
taste. "Joe did a fabulous job.
The recipe is excellent."
And the ingredients of the
sauce, which Cachia said he
can whip up in about 20 min-
utes, are simple: onions, toma-
to puree, olive oil, salt, red
pepper, cayenne pepper and
spices.
Preservatives? Forget
about it.
Because it's all natural,
Cachia's onion relish, market-
ed as "gourmet," is slated to
be sold at Whole Foods, Fresh
Market and Quality Food
Centers, a chain of 75 gour-
met stores in Washington state
owned by Kroger's.
New York Joe's Onions
already are being sold in
seven Hiller's Supermarkets,
a high-end specialty chain in
Michigan, and in several
places in the Keys, including
the Trading Post, Debbiy
Doo's Deli and a hot-dog
stand called What's Up
Dawg? The price: $6.99 for a
12-ounce jar in stores, $5.99
online.


Chris Colby, now an inde-
pendent consultant, led a team
at FoodLaunch that came up
with the name "The Original
New York Joe's Onions," with
lettering N.YJ.O. that played
off the New York Police
Department's iconic N.YP.D.
I'.i ! of the brand strategy
is that he's the average Joe,"
Colby said. "He's an average
working guy who retired to
the Florida Keys and finally


decided to make his dream a
reality."
In a condiment world satu-
rated with barbecue sauces
and salsas, the onion relish is
unique - and that's a real
advantage, said Colby.
Lempert, originally from
New Jersey, also said Joe's
Onions stood out because it
was different and interesting.
Of the 300 to 400 new prod-
ucts he receives each week, he
tries about 100 and evaluates
only five.
"I wouldn't say it's a cross
between anything," Lempert
said. "It's just a recipe that
uses a good onion, with good
spices. I've put it on hotdogs,
but I've also had it on ham-
burgers, fish and omelets. It's
so versatile."
Lempert brought it on the
TV program The View in
February, with seven other
new food products of 2010.
While the show was still
on the air, Cachia's website,
www.nyjoesonions.com,
was bombarded with orders.
In total, close to 1,000 jars
have been sold.
Cachia said a mild version
of his sauce, which has a shelf
life of about two years, is in
the works. He's also thinking
about producing a spicier ver-
sion.

Refuge teaches about pollination


Thursday tour
to focus on
pollen success

In recognition of
National Pollinator Week
- yes, there is such a
thing - the National Key
Deer Refuge on Big Pine
Key is hosting a guided
walk on Thursday from 9
to 11 a.m.
Meet at 9 at the refuge's
Visitor Center at the Winn-
Dixie plaza, on Key Deer
Boulevard a quarter mile
north of the Big Pine traf-
fic light, for a brief intro-
duction to pollinators and
their role in the Keys
ecosystem.
Then refuge staff will
lead a field trip to observe
pollinators in action and
examine the results -
fruits and seeds. Bring a


water bottle, hat, sun-
screen and mosquito
spray; and wear sneakers,
a long-sleeve shirt and
pants.
So what is a pollinator?
About 75 percent of all
flowering plant species
need the help of animals to
move their heavy pollen
grains from plant to plant
for fertilization. About
1,000 of all pollinators are
vertebrates such as birds,
bats and small mammals.
Most pollinators (about
200,000 species) are
insects such as flies, bee-
tles, wasps, ants, butter-
flies, moths and bees.
Pollinators are often
keystone species, meaning
they are critical to the
health of an ecosystem.
For more information
about Thursday's tour,
contact Ernestine Phillips
at 872-0774.

Event tests
the skills of
our bartenders

The Schooner Wharf
Bar in Key West is draft-
ing new recruits and re-
calling seasoned veterans
for its 18th annual Battle
of the Bars.
The annual showdown
is at noon Aug. 7, but if
you want to participate,
now is the time to form a
team and plan your strate-
gy.
The Battle of the Bars
involves a relay course
that tests the skills of the
island's most skilled bar-
tenders and servers. They
must mix and serve


This is the Dante's team, which came in third last year.


drinks, tap a keg, sort
recyclables and skillfully
consume their frothy con-
coctions - all while rac-


ing against the clock.
Judges can be bribed to
ensure victory.
Over the years, the


Battle of the Bars has
raised $215,548 for local
charities; this year's pro-
ceeds will help the Florida
Keys Healthy Start
Coalition and the Cancer
Foundation of the Florida
Keys. The coalition helps
new moms and babies get
a healthy start in life,
while the Cancer
Foundation helps local
cancer patients pay their
bills while undergoing
expensive treatments.
Register by July 28 to
ensure your team's name
on the event T-shirt. Entry
fee is $35. For more infor-
mation, call the Schooner
Wharf, 202 William St., at
the historic seaport, at
292-3302.

Animals use their wits to win
the day.

the islands, including how to
play their musical instruments.
* July 7: "Noodlehead
Stories." Just silly stories.
* July 14: "Wild Bird
Rescue." The Marathon Wild
Bird Center staff tells what it
does.
* July 21: "Monsters, the
World Tour." Meet weird and
wonderful creatures."
* July 28: "There and Back
Again: Around the World in
60 Minutes." Magic, comedy,

* Aug. 4: "Worldwide

sions of the classic children's
tale.
