KEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE


FOURTH OF JULY


New dc


filling f

Many applicants
are coming from
out of Florida
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Just in time for the kick-
off of the fall semester on
Aug. 22, Florida Keys
Community College staff is
gearing up for an Aug. 20
move-in day for students liv-
ing in the new 100-bed dor-
mitory.
The building is still under
construction, but college
spokeswoman Amber Ernst-
Leonard said it's scheduled
to be finished on Aug. 15.
As of Friday, "We have
81 applications," she said.
"There're only 100 beds so
we're looking pretty good."
Of those applicants, 25
have sent in their $250
deposits. Ernst-Leonard said
the applicants are "about
half from in-state and half
out-of-state," from as far
afield as Arizona, Texas,
New Jersey, Illinois and
Connecticut.
She said only two current
students have applied for
lodging; most of the in-state


)rm


'ast
applicants are from outside
of Monroe County.
"FKCC has become
somewhat of a destination
college," Ernst-Leonard
said, "and most of these stu-
dents are studying marine
science. It's a waterfront
dorm so it's pretty cool."
Rent, including utilities,
is going to be around $800
per month. The units are
four- and five-bedroom two-
bath suites with common
living areas and bathrooms.
Plans for the 30,000-square-
foot building also include an
exercise room, patio lounge
and common area.
The Campus Foundation,
an FKCC direct-support
organization that oversees
housing, voted in November
to approve an $8.2 million
bond sale to BB&T bank to
fund the construction. The
college statutorily isn't
allowed to encumber proper-
ty or take a financial risk on
the project, meaning the
foundation, represented by
bond firm Bergen Capital,
handled the financial end.

PILL MILLS


Pill-mill law


now in effect


It bans doctors
from dispensing
pain medication
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

State agents and health
officials on Tuesday started
confiscating leftover pills
from Florida pain clinics,
showing the state appears
serious in trying to shut down
pill mills throughout Florida.
Under a new law that took
effect last week, clinics and
doctors can only write pre-
scriptions for pain drugs,
which now must be filled at
pharmacies. Leftover pills
can be returned to distribu-
tors or given to the state to be
destroyed.
Authorities are targeting
clinics and doctors that
ordered at least 2,000 pain
pills a month this year or
have suspicious histories.
The law also authorized a
prescription-drug monitoring
database, for which the Key
West Police Department is con-
tributing money to get started.
A Key West couple
charged April 28 and 29 with
four strong-armed robberies
shows the damage prescrip-
tion drug abuse can cause,
authorities say.
Thomas Hillman, 33, and
his wife Cheryl, 40, are
charged with three felony
counts of robbery, multiple
felony counts of credit-card


fraud, as well as cocaine-relat-
ed charges. Thomas is also
charged with possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon.
But they all relate to the
couple's use oxycodone and
other pills, Police Chief
Donie Lee says. He says the
couple admitted the need for
those drugs led them to their
crime spree.
"We need to do all we can
to get these drugs off the
street," Lee said. "This case
is another example of the cor-
relation between the illegal
use of prescription drugs and
crime. And in this case, vio-
lent crime."
Police say the spree start-
ed early June 16, when
Theresa Martin, 51, was
walking from Don's Place on
Truman Avenue down to
Duval Street to grab a bite to
eat around 4 a.m. She told
police that around the 800
block of Truman, Thomas
Hillman approached her ask-
ing for directions, then
grabbed her purse attempting
to flee in to a waiting Ford F-
150 driven by his wife.
Martin clung to her purse
but was dragged by the truck,
left with "road rash and
bruises along her face, arms,
back and knees," according
to a report prepared by
Detective Janet Calvert.
The next victim, Iris Mattal,
a 28-year-old Estonian native,
was robbed on June 19 around
2:30 a.m. as she walked to her

Big weekend for



business and fun


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com
Residents and tourists of
the Keys enjoyed a busy, and
by all accounts safe, Fourth
of July holiday weekend. And
judging by the traffic on U.S.
1 and in the stores, it looked
good for business, too.
Greater Marathon Chamber
of Commerce Executive
Director Daniel Samess said
many of the city's roughly
1,300 hotel rooms were
booked.
"Most of the properties


Scores of visitors hit the Keys,
keeping law enforcement on its toes


were full. It was a great week-
end and we got a lot of good
reports from the beach festi-
val about people seeing more
visitors than locals," he said.
Likewise in the Upper
Keys, where Gladys Cornell
of the Key Largo Chamber
of Commerce said nearly
1,000 people came through
the visitor center Friday
through Sunday.
"The hotels ... were pretty


full over the weekend. We were
finding a lot of people were
already sold out," she said.
There were more than a
dozen drunk-driving arrests
up and down the Keys
Friday through Monday, but
only one boating under the
influence arrest.
"A couple minor fender
benders but no major boat-
ing accident or injuries.
Everybody for the most part


was behaving," Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission spokesman
Bobby Dube said.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, 17
people were arrested over
the weekend for DUI. One
was also charged with mari-
juana possession and another
with resisting arrest.
Islamorada resident
William Walsh, 58, added
four counts of misdemeanor
resisting arrest and one count

KEY WEST

Keys Federal robbed in Key West


It's second
time branch
has been hit
Keynoter Staff

Key West police on
Tuesday afternoon were
looking for a man that robbed
the Keys Federal Credit
Union branch in the Overseas
Market on North Roosevelt
Boulevard around 1:30 p.m.
By about 3:30 p.m., police


had re-opened the shopping
center, except for the bank,
after controlling ingress and
egress while looking for the
suspect and talking with poten-
tial witnesses, police spokes-
woman Alyson Crean said.
She said police are look-
ing for a white man with a
close-cut beard, possibly
with blue eyes, who was last
seen wearing a hat, white
shirt and tan shorts. Crean
said he had Band-Aids
wrapped around his fingers.
"There was some belief


that he might have been
armed," she said, adding that
"he kept one hand in his
pocket the whole time."
July has not been a good
month for banks located in
the Overseas Market.
On July 3, 2010, police
arrested two Key Westers for
robbing the First State Bank
branch inside the Winn-Dixie
grocery store.
It didn't take police long
to take Carlos Rossi, now 41,
and Jessica Pentacoff, now
22, into custody after the lat-


ter fled the scene with the
money in hand on a bicycle.
She now lives in Cape
Canaveral and is on felony
probation through Sept. 15,
2013. Rossi is being held in
the Monroe County Detention
Center on $150,000 bond.
Charlain St. Charles, now
34, is accused of robbing the
Overseas Market branch of
Keys Federal on July 13,
2010; he's awaiting trial and
being held in the county jail

Three charged in


lobster poaching


One suspect
arrested two
straight days
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A total of 72 out-of-sea-
son lobster were seized in
two separate poaching cases
from this holiday weekend
that resulted in the arrests of
three men.
A Miami man was
charged with poaching on
both Saturday and Sunday,
while two Key Largo resi-
dents were arrested in a sepa-
rate case Friday, according to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
FWC Officer Chris
Mattson had a role in two of
the arrests involving 63 con-
traband lobster.


Mario Vazquez, 42, of
Miami was arrested Sunday
off Grassy Key after Mattson
saw the defendant snorkeling
without a required dive flag.
Vazquez "began kicking up
the bottom in attempts to con-
ceal his speargun and catch
bag under some rocks in the
water," said agency spokes-
man Officer Bobby Dube.
Mattson dove in and
found a bag containing 40
speared lobster tails.
Vazquez was charged
with possessing 40 out-of-
season, speared and wrung
tails, and possessing 26
undersized tails. He also was
booked on a count of inter-
fering with an FWC officer
and failing to have a
required measuring gauge.
A day earlier, two FWC
officers alerted Mattson they
had cited Vazquez for pos-
session of nine speared, out-
of-season lobster in a sepa-


rate violation.
Vazquez's spearguns and
dive gear were seized as evi-
dence. The defendant
remained in the Monroe
County jail on Tuesday with
no bond allowed.
On Friday, FWC Officer
Rene Taboas and Mattson
said as they approached a
small boat off Key Largo,
they saw a man throwing
lobsters overboard.
The officers took both
men aboard the small boat
into custody, then found 23
lobster in a bucket on the ves-
sel. Luis Valdez, 75, and Luis
F. Montenegro, 66, both were
charged with interfering with
an FWC officer, along with
possessing 23 lobster out of
season and possessing 20
undersized lobster.
The two suspects were
jailed under bonds of
$110,000 for Montenegro
and $75,000 for Valdez.


LOBSTER SEASON


Law expands no-dive zones


New county
rule goes in
effect July 24
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A new Monroe County
law on nearshore diving
closes more Florida Keys
waters this month - one of
the most significant changes
to recreational lobster har-
vesting in years.
The law bans most div-
ing and snorkeling within
300 feet of many shorelines
effective July 24 - three
days before the start of the
two-day lobster mini-season
on July 27 and 28.
Passed on a 3-2 vote of
the County Commission in
December, the law says
there will be no diving or
snorkeling "within 300 feet
of improved residential or
commercial shorelines" in
unincorporated Monroe for
a total of 10 days.
The law, which also cov-
ers canals and marinas, runs
from July 24 to the end of
mini-season on July 28, and
then for the first five days of
the regular lobster season
that begins Aug. 6.
The same unincorporated
nearshore waters have been
closed during the two-day
mini-season since 2003.
Marathon, Key Colony
Beach and Islamorada all
have their own nearshore-
diving bans, and are not
affected by the unincorpo-
rated-county change. Key
West keeps its waters open.
Distribution of a newly
revised brochure on Florida

ISLAMORADA


Keys lobster laws started
recently.
"This appears to be a lit-
tle-known change in the
law," said Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Deputy Superintendent
Mary Tagliareni, who
updated the brochure.
The County Commission
declared in its ordinance
that the new rules are need-
ed "to abate the destruction
of property, deleterious
environmental effects and
criminal trespass that results
from the close proximity of
divers to public and private
property ... in search of
spiny lobster...."
The Sheriff's Office and
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
are charged with enforcing
the new law.
"We can enforce it if our
officers are nearby," said
FWC Officer Bobby Dube
spokesman. "But we have a
lot of other core missions
that take priority in lobster
season.
"We're spread pretty thin
and we've got a lot of water
to cover," Dube said. "It's a
very large area of responsi-
bility."
During the busy lobster
sport-diving days, the
Sheriff's Office will put all
available marine-certified
deputies on the water, said
Lou Caputo, chief of the
agency's Bureau of Law
Enforcement. The Sheriff's
Office has four patrol boats
of its own available, plus
four personal watercraft on
"law-enforcement loan."
"So for those days, we
can put eight boats on the
water," Caputo said. "That's
everything we have."


Since the 2011 season
marks the first year of the
county's expanded
nearshore law, Caputo said,
"The emphasis will be more
on education. I expect that
we'll mostly warn people
and ask them to move far-
ther from shore."
In communities that have
a pre-existing nearshore
diving ban, he added, "our
deputies will be a little more
strict."
County Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy spearheaded
the ordinance expansion,
saying her office constantly
hears complaints from
waterfront residents and
business owners about mini-
season problems.
"There are some people
on the waterfront who want
[the nearshore diving ban]
for 12 months a year,"
Murphy said. "I have some
sympathy for their situation
but not that much."
The nearshore diving
bans cover all types of div-
ing - not just lobster har-
vests - because local gov-
ernments cannot regulate
wildlife harvesting.
Exempted from the bans are
diving for boat or dock
maintenance.
Key Colony Beach has
the lobster nearshore diving
ban from four days before
the start of the sport season
until 10 days into the regu-
lar season. The regular lob-
ster season lasts for eight
months.
The rules do not affect
offshore diving beyond 300
feet from shore. Existing
closed areas at the reef and
in protected areas remain
closed.


Village OKs Winn-Dixie


Grocery, liquor
stores going on
Upper Matecumbe

By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

A Winn-Dixie super-
market is coming to
Islamorada.
The five-member
Village Council voted
unanimously on June 23 to
allow Winn-Dixie to build
a 22,237-square-foot
supermarket on 2.24 acres
at mile marker 81 on
Upper Matecumbe Key
between U.S. 1 and the
Old Highway. Jacksonville
developer Net Five-
Islamorada paid $2.5 mil-
lion for the property in
December.
The affirmative vote
was made against village
Planning Department
staff's recommendation to
deny the proposed project.
Several concerns
remained since Winn-
Dixie and Net Five-
Islamorada presented their
proposal to the Village
Council in March, but
chief among them was the
potential threats to pedes-


trian safety from delivery
trucks. The original plan
had the trucks backing up
through the 98-space cus-
tomer parking lot to reach
the loading area.
To address these con-
cerns, architect Bruce
Carlson of the Miami-
based firm Siskind Carlson
& Partners designed a
cross-access connection
between the proposed
Winn-Dixie lot and the
parking lot of the adjacent
Galleria shopping plaza to
the south. Winn Dixie and
Net Five made an undis-
closed financial arrange-
ment with the Galleria's
owner, Michael Anzalone,
to share his parking lot.
The deal also requires
Anzalone to move his
loading areas to the back
of the shopping center.
But Councilman Don
Achenberg had more con-
cerns about the trucks
operating in the relatively
small parking lot. So as a
concession him, delivery
trucks entering the Winn-
Dixie parking lot will exit
onto U.S. 1 trough the
Galleria driveway.
Achenberg made his
vote contingent on Net
Five, Winn-Dixie and


Anzalone agreeing on sev-
eral more conditions,
including placing signs on
both the Winn-Dixie and
Galleria lots about trucks
backing up, placing signs
on the Winn-Dixie lot
emphasizing employee
parking only near the load-
ing zones and mandating
Winn-Dixie trucks have
back-up alarms.
Net Five and Winn-
Dixie also agreed to buy
former village Councilman
Bob Johnson's house and
property behind the pro-
posed site because Johnson
had many concerns about
the supermarket going up
next to his home. Since
being bought out, Johnson
enthusiastically supports
the project.
He refused to say how
much he was paid, only
saying "it wasn't enough
to buy my integrity."
The Village Council
also said OK to allowing
Winn-Dixie to sell liquor,
beer and wine at a connect-
ing store.
Winn-Dixie said it
plans to hire about 75 peo-
ple for full- and part-time
work once the grocery and
liquor store open.

Crackdown starts


From Pills, 1A

James Street home from the
Lazy Gecko on Duval.
Police say Thomas
Hillman approached her
and asked for a cigarette;
when Mattal reached in to
her purse to get one,
Hillman reportedly grabbed
the purse, punched her in
the face and pushed her to
the ground, then hopped in
to the waiting vehicle.
The next incident did not
turn violent, but resulted in
another woman having her
purse snatched out of her
scooter basket while stopped
at Southard and White streets
around 3:30 a.m. June 27.
About 3:30 a.m. June 27,
the final robbery, which led
to the Hillmans' arrest, took
place: 23-year-old Emily
Seigel encountered the cou-
ple outside of Mr. Z's pizza
on Southard Street, where
one of the Hillmans asked if
she was OK.
Seigel told police she
kept walking and, near the
Key West library, a car
pulled up and Thomas
Hillman got out and
demanded her purse. Seigel
kept hold of it as Hillman
punched her, knocking her to
the ground, "where the male
punched and kicked her until
she released the purse."


From there, the
Hillmans used Seigel's
credit card to buy gas and
Newport cigarettes at con-
venience stores on Stock
Island and Big Coppitt Key.
A review of surveillance
footage led police to the
Hillmans' vehicle and they
were pulled over and arrest-
ed on June 28.
Cheryl Hillman told
police "she was not able to
remember the incidents
clearly because she was
under the influence of
Xanax at the time."
Husband and wife are

to rob Key West banks
aren't unsuccessful.
Back in December 2008,
Daniel Swetokos, now 38,
robbed the First State branch


at Whitehead and Fleming

hours later on Duval Street
near the Pegasus Hotel based
on video evidence.
Swetokos had been
released from prison 11 days
earlier after serving a year
and a half for burglary and
grand theft in a Monroe

back behind bars, doing 10
years.

KEY WEST


Roosevelt work


comes in millions over


DOT reviewing
new estimates
from contractors
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A large-scale, two-year
roadwork project planned for
North Roosevelt Boulevard
in Key West could cost mil-
lions of dollars more than
was originally estimated by
state transportation officials.
Staff at the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion estimated the total cost
would be around $33 million;
however, two bids for the
work received by the state
Department of Transporta-
tion at the end of June carry
price tags of $41.5 million
and $44.9 million.
Will Thompson, a Monroe
County-based DOT spokes-
man, said the project was
"pulled back to District 6
offices in Mhi.iihi for review.
"It's going to get worked out.


It's just a matter of how. The
project has to go forward.
That road is in terrible shape."
The reconstruction has
been in the design phase for
more than a decade with per-
mitting starting back in 2005.
Two local government enti-
ties plan to use the project as an
opportu nity to replace infra-
structure in the area. Working
estimates used prior to the bid
returns broke out the $33 mil-
lion total: $27 million from
DOT, $3.7 million from the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority for a new water line
and $2.3 million from the city
of Key West for a new sewer
force main.
Jay Gewin, the city's utili-
ties manager, said the new
estimates increase the city's
cost by $1.986 million. That
pays for the new main run-
ning from near Kennedy
Drive down North Roosevelt
to Truman Avenue.
"We're looking at our
options at this point," he said.
"Either we can pay the addi-
tional cost or conceivably we


could do the project on our
own. It's one of the things
we're looking at right now."
The overall project envi-
sions extending the seawall
to create a 20-foot-wide
promenade along the water,
four lanes of traffic 11 feet
wide, a 10-foot turn lane and
a six-foot sidewalk on the
business side of the road.
All that is supposed to
take around 820 construction
days, planned to commence
on April 15, 2012; contained
in that are about 35 blackout
days per year to accommo-
date events like Fantasy Fest
and powerboat races.
During the two-plus years
of work, North Roosevelt
will become two lanes of
traffic inbound, with a tem-
porary bike lane. Outbound
traffic will be shifted to
Flagler Avenue and South
Roosevelt Boulevard.
Also included in the proj-
ect is the addition of five
crosswalks with flashing yel-
low lights and safety medians
for pedestrians.

City hall trailers

staying for now


Council OKs
3-year deal
with Scotsman
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon's City Hall is
staying put for at least anoth-
er three years.
So said the City Council
on June 28 when it approved
a three-year lease with
William Scotsman Inc. for
the trailers serving as City
Hall between 98th and 99th
streets. The rent will cost the
city $4,750 per month, or
$57,000 annually.
The council originally
voted down the deal but
reversed itself when Vice
Mayor Dick Ramsay and
Councilman Richard Keating
discovered the alternative was
a two-year lease at $63,000
per year. Each thought it was
a one-year deal.
The city signed a two-year
extension in 2009 at $5,250
per month, or $63,000 per
year, for 10 trailers. City
Manager Roger Hernstadt
negotiated with Scotsman to
lower the price over three-
year or five-year periods.
"I don't see us going any-
where in the next three years,"
Mayor Ginger Snead said.
Ramsay then motioned to
reconsider his vote, leaving
only Councilman Pete
Worthington dissenting. He's
long opposed using trailers


for City Hall.
"I think everyone knows
my position on the trailers.
As much as I like to save the
city money, I don't feel I
should be committing future
councils to a five-year or
three-year lease," he said.
The five-year lease option
was for $4,200 per month, or
$50,400 annually.
Worthington said he thinks
of the city as a business and
that he knows only "a few
businesses operating out of a
mobile home or trailer."
"If the opportunity pres-
ents itself to move into a city
hall, I don't see the benefit.
At $6,000 [per] year, we
ought to stick with the cur-
rent lease. If something
comes up and we can move
forward on another loca-
tion.... I'm all for it," he said.
In May, the council dis-
cussed building a permanent
City Hall but consensus was
the down economy would
delay that. Snead said the city
will likely hi., c to take some
property we have and build."
"We have to get three peo-
ple on the council that have
the fortitude and the foresight
to say it's time," she said.
Councilman Mike Cinque
agreed and said he's dis-
cussed budgeting money in
the coming fiscal year for
"pre-engineering."
"I think we're ready to
discuss," he said. "The realis-
tic place to put it is where the
trailers are."

EDITORIAL


Opinion & Editorial



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Results matter,

not robocalls

Governor bombards Florida residents
with automated telephone calls
that tout what he's done so far

First he had his mother cut an ad for him telling
Floridians what a good job her son is doing. Then
his staff drafted a form letter of support that he
posted on his website and asked supporters to add
some verbs and adverbs and then send the letter to
newspaper editors statewide.
So robocalls probably weren't the most astute
way for Gov. Rick Scott to tout what he says are his
accomplishments.
Though the personal touch might have its
charms, a lot of Floridians loathe them. So Scott
has gone the way of incessant robocalls.
Scott's automated calls started in May in an
attempt to drum up support for the nationally
unpopular governor. In the first call, he cheerily
dissed a number of hometown projects as "special-
interest waste." That only ticked off Republican
lawmakers, who had crafted the state budget and
whose projects, some that would have improved
residents' quality of life, went nowhere.
In the second call, he touted getting tough on
welfare recipients - a perennially favorite group
to smear - and cracking down on Florida's pill
mills (of course, it took a while for it to dawn on
the governor that these were a problem worth tack-
ling.) In the third call, he talked of lowering prop-
erty taxes and whacking water management dis-
tricts.
Scott may have missed that, coincidentally, resi-
dents in Miami-Dade were dodging the shrapnel of
a bruising campaign for county mayor, and robo-
calls were a big part of each campaign's strategy.
A look at some of the letters The Miami Herald
published might have clued him in: "Do the may-
oral candidates think anyone listens to those
moronic automated phone calls before slamming
down the c Cei\ cI .' Carol-Jane Gottfried of Miami
wrote. "Politicians should not be exempt from the
Florida Do Not Call Program," said Martin
Mendiola of Coral Gables.
Of course, Scott wouldn't know because he says
he doesn't read Florida newspapers. Too bad he
didn't get a clue.
The robocalls aren't necessarily lifting his dis-
mal poll numbers. The good news is that we tax-
payers aren't funding this cheerleading campaign
- the state Republican Party is. The bad news is,
those calls are annoying the heck out of people.
The governor would do well to remember that
his time in office will be remembered for the things
he does, not just says in a prerecorded message to
the masses, that will leave Florida stronger than
when he took office. For instance, he directed
almost $100 million to the Port of Miami for a
deeper shipping channel. This will create jobs and
revenue.
Results, not robocalls, will matter most in the
long run.

Dino park? No way
As we salute Henry Flagler's
railroad and commemorate the
100th anniversary of the Key West
Extension of the Florida East
Coast Railway, let us not forget
there would be no such railroad
without the historic quarry on
Windley Key, which is now threat-
ened by a dinosaur-park privatiza-
tion proposal.
Henry Flagler paid the Russell
family $852.80 for property on
Windley Key to use the excavated
stone for fill and bridge construc-
tion. Even after the inaugural Jan.
12, 1912, railroad trip to Key West,
the quarry station on Windley Key
was an important stop for the key-
stone from the quarry. The Windley
Key depot and the railroad were
destroyed in the horrible Category
5 1935 Labor Day hurricane.
Fast forward to the present
Windley Key Fossil Reef
Geological State Park, with its sub-
tropical forest containing the three
quarries and actual equipment


Flags honor the fallen
The benefit lasagna dinner held
June 25 was a great success, with
more than $2,350 raised for the
American Legion/KIA Memorial
Flags of Freedom program.
These funds will be used to pur-
chase and send throughout the
U.S. Killed in Action flags to the
surviving families of those killed
in combat since Sept. 11, 2001.
The KIA flags really touch the
hearts of the surviving families,
evidenced by the responses we
receive from them.
Heartfelt thanks to Lynn
Sullivan and Tube Creed for put-
ting together the silent auction,
50/50 sales and the custom-made
patriotic bottle lamp. A big thanks
also goes out Weezie Schwenke,
Laurie Harvey and Joe Goetz for
their help with the food service.
Thanks to the Keynoter and US1
Radio for promoting the dinner.


Casting for a cause
I would like to recognize and
say thank you to Kathy and Capt.
Spider Branch for hosting the
recent Casting for Charity event
at the 7-Mile Marina/Salty's Grill
in Marathon on behalf of the
Monroe County Domestic Abuse
Shelter.
The fundraising event netted
$165 and provided tremendous
enjoyment for all that participated


Big Oil gouges us
Well, on Capitol Hill, there was
another dog and pony show with
our lawmakers questioning Big Oil
chief executive officers who make
millions and millions in compensa-
tion every year. If the high cost of
gasoline is not them, investigate
who is gouging us gas.
Owners of gas stations say it is
not them. That is true to some
point. In fact, they have to take
delivery of what the oil company
sends them. Is it the oil compa-
nies? Altogether, they made $38
billion in first-quarter profits, with


Henry Flagler used to mine stone.
This is our only above-ground fos-
silized reef, which is visited by
hundreds of geological students
each year studying the impact of
global warming and other issues.
Unfortunately, this park and its
history are threatened by a bizarre
dino-park proposal by a foreign
developer. This proposed venture
would not be in the public interest
for the following reasons:
* Environmental damage to
threatened and endangered plant
and animal life due to new build-
ings, a parking lot, a viewing plat-
form on the bay and the placement
of up to 150 dinosaur models.
* Disturbing documented Indian
archeological remains from the
Calusa and Tequesta tribes.
* Visitors, especially children,
will be confused since dinosaurs
never existed in the Keys.
* The potential of 150 giant
models, up to 30 feet high and 100
feet long, becoming airborne in our
neighborhood in a hurricane.


And lastly, my gratitude to my
wife Jan for the hours spent pur-
chasing food and preparing dinner
for 100 guests to make this benefit
possible.
But most of all, thanks to the
many guests and those who donat-


and watched. Thanks to Kathy
and Capt. Spider for their unwa-
vering support and for continu-
ously naming DAS as a benefici-
ary of their generosity.

STATE GOVERNMENT


State workers now out of work due to cuts


1,300 receive
pink slips
as of Tuesday
Miami Herald


Millions of Floridians
headed back to work
Tuesday after a restful
three-day Fourth of July
weekend. But Toni
Gugliotta wasn't among
them.
She'll be applying for
$275 a week in unemploy-
ment benefits instead. The
Pinellas County woman is
among 1,300 state employ-
ees put out of work by the
new budget approved by
the Legislature and signed
into law by Gov. Rick
Scott on May 26.
Scott kept his promise
to reduce the size of the
state government bureau-


cracy. But he did so at the
expense of real people
with mortgages, health-
care bills, college tuition
payments and credit card
payments.
Many of them earned
less than $30,000 a year
after years of state
employment.
To them, the Scott
mantra "Let's get to work"
rings hollow. They now
join the hordes of
Floridians looking for
work in a state with an
unemployment rate that,
while declining, remains
in double digits at 10.6
percent.
The state agencies that
took the biggest hits are
the Department of Juvenile
Justice and the Department
of Children and Families,
which together account for
most of the layoffs.
"It's like 12 years going
down the drain," Gugliotta


said.
Gugliotta, 50, of
Dunedin, earned nearly
$29,000 a year as one of
18 full-time community
service officers under the
Florida Highway Patrol.
CSOs, as they were
known, directed traffic and
handled fender-bender
accidents, freeing up
Florida Highway Patrol
troopers for more serious
calls.
The program was a
perennial target of budget
cuts but always managed
to survive - until this
year. After 14 years, it's
gone.
For the first time in 15
years, she'll be without a
paycheck this week. She's
single and has no other
income and plans to file
for unemployment bene-
fits, but worries knowing
the $275 a week won't
cover her $560 monthly


health insurance premiums
and other bills.
"I have a mortgage. I
have bills. I have to pay
for my knee surgery,"
Gugliotta said.
She also worries about
motorists who she says
will now have to wait
longer for help. "Wait until
hurricane season. Wait
until schools open," she
said.
Firing the CSOs saves
$900,000. That's a pit-
tance, Gugliotta argues,
compared to the waste that
went into the $48 million
courthouse in Tallahassee
known as the Taj Mahal.

'Expendable'
Columbus Wilson
bought a house in
Tallahassee four years ago.
Now he worries he won't
be able to make the mort-
gage payments.
After 19 years, Wilson


finds himself unemployed,
fired from his job as a data
clerk at the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles. His job, Fiscal
Assistant II, paid $24,670
a year - after 19 years.
A 58-year-old disabled
Army veteran, Wilson
wonders why that wasn't
considered. \\li.ii upsets
me is, I'm a veteran,"
Wilson said. "I thought I
was supposed to have a
veterans' preference."
Because his last job
evaluation was a 3 on a
scale of 1 to 5, the state
decided he was expend-
able. He has gone on a
couple of job interviews,
but so far, nothing.
Ida Shuler thought she
and her fellow clerks in
the Department of
Corrections would be
spared as they moved to
new downtown
Tallahassee offices in


early June. After all, her
boss gave her a shaded
parking space and her own
cubicle.
"I just knew we missed
the radar," Shuler said.
It wouldn't last. Shuler,
a 23-year-old senior at
Florida A&M, and most of
her fellow student-workers
lost their part-time jobs.
They earned money for
tuition, books, rent and not
much else.
Their entry-level,
$8.50-an-hour jobs were
easy targets for prison
officials trying to trim
costs.
As she watched other
laid-off workers cry at
their desks, Shuler real-
ized she's better off than
some of them. "Some have
families they are taking
care of off what we were
making," she said. "This is
their life."

REAL ESTATE



Schwartz snapping up Keysearch


Company will
have 80 agents,
six offices
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com
Two big names in Florida
Keys real estate will become
one in a deal scheduled to
close July 15.
Schwartz Property Sales
is purchasing the assets of
Century 21 Keysearch for


an undisclosed price.
The company will now
be known as Century 21
Schwartz Realty.
Century 21 Schwartz
Realty's owners are broker
Peter Dalton, general manag-
er Eric Johnson and sales
manager Jimmy Lane. Dalton
is also president of Coldwell
Banker Vanguard Realty in
Jacksonville, and he splits his
time between the two areas.
Lane said the acquisition
effectively doubles the size
of the company. It also


brings together two compa-
nies routinely ranked among
the top four Keyswide.
"The brand, along with
the increase in size, makes it
a very strong company,"
Lane said.
Century 21 Schwartz
Realty will have 80 agents in
six offices - Key Largo,
Islamorada, Marathon, Big
Pine, Sugarloaf and Key West.
"Our hope with the
Century 21 brand is that we
will grow from there," Lane
said. "Our goal is to be No. 1."


Century 21 Schwartz
Realty will specialize in resi-
dential and commercial sales
and property management.
Century 21 Keysearch
owner George Nyman and
his wife, Sharon, were out
of town Tuesday and could-
n't be reached for comment.
George Nyman already
came out of retirement once
this decade to take the helm
of a Century 21 franchise,
and Lane said it appears he's
ready to enjoy retirement
again. Lane said Sharon


Nyman planned to stay in
the company's Upper Keys
offices, where she special-
izes in high-end properties.
Lane said Schwartz
Property Sales Inc.'s corpo-
rate name and structure would
remain the same, except for
the addition of the dba of
Century 21 Schwartz Realty.
Schwartz was previously
a GMAC franchise and
more recently a member of
Leading Real Estate
Companies of the World, an
affiliation of independent


real estate companies.
"It's really hard in today's
world to be an independent
real estate company without
those national and interna-
tional resources," Lane said.
He said the company -
and its clients - will benefit
from the Century 21 brand,
which has a strong market-
ing and advertising operation
and a great referral system.
"We already had a big
presence, and Century 21
makes it just that much big-
ger," Lane said.

Seven finish
college program
in Tavern ier

Florida Keys Community
College's Institute for Public
Safety on Friday graduated
Class 41 from its Basic Law
Enforcement Academy with a
ceremony at the Murray E.
Nelson Government and
Cultural Center in Key Largo.
Seven students complet-
ed the 770-hour training
program in the college's
Upper Keys Center in
Tavernier. If they pass the
state certification exam,
each will become Florida
law enforcement officers.
Two graduates have
already secured employ-
ment if they pass the test:
Biscayne Park Assistant
Police Chief Antonio
Sanchez presented a
Biscayne Park police badge
to Charlie Dayoub, and
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Col. Rick Ramsay


presented a badge to
Thomas O'Dea, a Sheriff's
Office director of mainte-
nance. O'Dea's son,
Anthony, also recently com-
pleted the police academy
and is scheduled to start
training at the Sheriff's
Office.
Alberto Rodriguez was
named class captain for pro-
viding leadership. Jean
Gonzalez was recognized
for his shooting skills. Nicol
Morales was deemed the
No. 1 recruit for overall per-
formance. Matthew O'Neill
received the physical fitness
award and Rodney Ramirez
received the award for
demonstrating the most
pride, integrity and guts.
The college is now
accepting applications for
two academies that begin in
August. The nighttime
academies will be offered
on the Key West campus
and at the college's Upper
Keys Center in Tavernier.

30 years for former executive


His fraud
helped buy
Key West home
Associated Press

An executive convicted
of orchestrating a nearly $3
billion fraud as chairman of
one of America's largest pri-
vate mortgage companies
was sentenced Thursday to
30 years in federal prison.
The case against Lee B.
Farkas, the 58-year-old for-
mer chairman of Florida-
based Taylor Bean &
Whitaker, is one of the most
significant prosecutions aris-
ing from the nation's finan-
cial crisis. The fraud
spanned more than seven
years, put thousands of
employees out of work and
contributed to the collapse
of Colonial Bank, which


authorities call the sixth-
largest bank failure in U.S.
history.
Prosecutors said Farkas
was motivated by greed and
a lavish lifestyle that includ-
ed a home in Key West that
he paid servants to hand-
wash with a sponge to pre-
vent salt damage.
"He deserves to be pun-
ished severely in light of the
enormity of his crimes," fed-
eral prosecutor Patrick
Stokes told U.S. District
Judge Leonie Brinkema in
recommending the defen-
dant receive life in prison.
"The losses from this case
are, in fact, off the charts."
Farkas, who denied
wrongdoing when he testi-
fied at his trial, was convict-
ed in April of 14 counts
including securities fraud
and conspiracy. On
Thursday in Brinkema's,
Alexandria, Va., courtroom,


he acknowledged taking
risks and making errors in
judgment to keep his compa-
ny afloat. But he did not
directly apologize for fraud.
"When faced with the
prospect of Taylor Bean &
Whitaker sinking, I had to
take risks," said Farkas, who
has been in custody since he
a jury convicted him. "I let
Taylor Bean & Whitaker get
out of control by letting it
grow too fast."
Brinkema told Farkas she
detected no remorse as she
sentenced him to the 30
years - twice the 15-year
sentence requested by his
attorneys.
The fraud began in 2002
and took multiple forms
until Taylor Bean collapsed
in 2009 and the scheme
unraveled, prosecutors said.
Federal agents raided
Taylor Bean overdrew its
main account with Alabama-


based Colonial Bank by sev-
eral million dollars and
eventually double- and
triple-pledged mortgages it
held to a variety of investors.
Prosecutors also alleged that
Taylor Bean sold hundreds
of millions of dollars in
worthless mortgages to
Colonial - mortgages that
had already been sold to
other investors.
The green prison jump-
suit Farkas wore to court
Thursday was a far cry from
the lavish lifestyle he once
enjoyed, including the Key
West house, classic cars, a
private jet and seaplane.
Farkas, of Ocala, is the
last of seven employees and
executives from Taylor Bean
and from Colonial to be sen-
tenced. The other six coop-
erated with the government
and agreed to testify against
him in to secure lighter sen-
tences for themselves.

Money would
go to help
buy Boot Key

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

With a lawsuit pending
against one of Boot Key's
three private owners, the city
of Marathon is confident a
federal grant will provide
$1.5 million toward the pur-
chase of the island.
The original amount was
$3 million, but a reduced
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
budget has cut the expected
award in half. The city
intends to use the money -
if it gets any - to make the
1,100-acre island an eco-
tourist destination.
In September, the city spent
$35,000 on lobbyist Jim Muller

and attorney Thom Rumberger
to secure funding through the
Coastal and Estuarine Land
Conservation Program.
The city ranked sixth out
of 42 applicants nationwide
for the grant, which requires
matching funds. Planning
Director George Garrett said
the city would seek state
grants for that.
"Our funding sources
have always been going after
Florida Forever money and
there's still some out there. It
was never our intent to fund
the other half using city dol-
lars," he said.
Garrett added the city has

impasse is holding that up.

The state Department of
Transportation declared the
Boot Key Bridge leading to
the island a hazard and closed
the permanently in 2009. The
City Council refused to sink
an estimated $10 million into
repairing it and removed the

That led Keys Radio

According to the Monroe

are no upcoming hearings in

Hernstadt said mediation
attempts roughly three months
ago failed and the city if
preparing for trial.
"The city is always willing

from the Big Coppitt Key
Fire Department - then
crashed it into a fire hydrant
o n
U.S. 1.
County Fire Chief Jim
Callahan says Lt. Tim
Leonard, the deputy fire
marshal, left the keys in the
truck when, while detailing
it, he joined an emergency
crew to respond to a medical
emergency. The truck was
last seen around 10 p.m.
Sunday.
"There's no excuse for
them being left in the vehi-
cle," Callahan said. "He was
there cleaning it, detailing it.
He had a call, didn't pull the
keys out. It was a mistake, it
was an accident."
The crash happened
around 3:30 a.m. Monday at
mile marker 5, and authori-
ties were notified when a
witness stopped to help out
- and rejected Streifel's
offer of money to help him
move the SUV from where it
was blocking traffic, says
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
Deputy Becky Herrin
says when found, Streifel
was standing next to the
truck, which ended up
parked on top of the hydrant.
The truck had a flat tire and
the hazard lights were on.
Streifel - allegedly
drunk after partying all night
- had the truck's keys in his
pocket when the cops
showed up, Herrin said. He
reportedly said someone
loaned him the vehicle.
While deputies Joe
Cortner, Spenser Bryan and
Scott Ward were investigat-
ing at mile marker 5, two of
Streifel's friends arrived in a
taxi. One of them, Justin
McClain, 42, of Gainesville,
reportedly wouldn't stop
yelling, so he was also
arrested, for interfering with
a law enforcement officer.
This is the second time
since January 2010 that a
Keys fire vehicle was stolen
and recovered.
On Jan. 24 that year, two
17-year-olds staying at the
Boy Scouts' Camp Sawyer
on West Summerland Key
stole a 2006 Chevrolet HD-
2500 from Big Pine Key
Volunteer Fire Chief
Malcolm Yaple's house. The
suspects were arrested on
the 18-Mile Stretch.

Reef heats up with snapper


You don't need
to fish deep
for your meal
If you have a hankering
for a fresh Florida Keys fish
dinner, head to the reef this
week: The yellowtail snapper
bite is excellent, with most
fish caught at the deeper edge
of the reef in the 65- to 90-
foot depths.
Mixed in are copious
amounts of large mangrove
snapper. These are usually
found under the schools of
yellowtail. The most effec-
tive baits have been small
live pinfish or large chunk
baits, such as ballyhoo,
fished on a quarter- to three-
eighths-ounce jighead.
A great alternative during
the summer is night man-
grove snapper fishing, which
is producing good catches of
large fish. The same venues

A doubleheader with two
Upper Keys Little League all-
star teams launches tourna-
ment play in Key Largo today.
The scheduled opener for
the District 8 Age 11-12 South
Pool game between Marathon
and the Upper Keys has been
moved up to 6 p.m. to allow
an Age 10-11 tournament
game to follow at the Key
Largo Community Park.
Age 10-11 Upper Keys
players and coaches traveled
to the district tournament site
in Doral for Friday's make-up
of a rained-out game - only
to learn a communications
breakdown caused the game


to be postponed again.
To make amends for the
lapse, league officials agreed
to allow the Upper Keys 10-
11 squad to play at home
against Doral in Key Largo
today, following the opener of
the Age 11-12 game.
All games in the Age 11-
12 South Pool will be played
in Key Largo. Kendall plays
Homestead at 7 p.m. today.
The Upper Keys continues
Age 11-12 round-robin play
with a 7 p.m. Friday game
against Homestead and a
10:30 a.m. Saturday against
Kendall.
A revised schedule for the
Age 10-11 tournament in
Doral was not available at
press time.
The Upper Keys Age 9-10
team takes on Kendall at 6:30
p.m. today at Homestead's
Harris Field in a game that
will decide the last semi-final-
ist spot for the District 8
championship round.

Baseball tonight


From Pool, 1 B

To a pool visitor the
other day, nothing looked
the same.
The fiberglass liner had
given way to a smooth plas-
ter bottom. Two sets of steps
descended into the shallow
end instead of one. The
cracked concrete deck had
been replaced with herring-
bone patterns of beige stone.
The canopy above the baby
pool was gone, as was the
basketball goal. Aluminum
handrails surrounded the
whole area instead of the old
chain-link fence.
There were new wood
benches, a new sign detail-
ing a myriad of rules
(including "no thongs," "no
cut-offs," "no horseplay")
- and even potted palms.
The downstairs area,
entered through new glass
doors, had been tiled and
adorned with three marine
murals done by Sandy Rico,
one of the city workers
("I've only been painting
since December") who
played a major role in the
facelift. The bathrooms,
boasting new plumbing and
fixtures, bore no resem-
blance to their oft-smelly,
grimy predecessors.
Last Thursday, on a


warm cloudy evening, about
50 people gathered for a rib-
bon-cutting and tour. Greg
Veliz and Randy Sterling,
who head up parks and
recreation projects for the
city, beamed with pride.
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, inside whose district
the pool lies, said, "This is
the unfolding of a vision -
and everyone doubted it
would be done on time."
"Na na, na na na,"
Commissioner Jimmy
Weekley added, and every-
one laughed.
After the ceremony,
guests were greeted up at
poolside by youthful life-
guards decked out in new
white shirts and red trunks
- and by Lee Thompson,
who, as Miss Lee, rules the
guards with an iron hand
and has run the pool for
more than 25 years.
"It's like so different,"
she said as she looked out at
all the newness. Thompson,
who is in her early 60s and
has a million-dollar tan,
seemed at an uncharacteris-
tic loss for words. At last, as
a gull swooped in from the
gray sea for a drink in the
deep end, she smiled and
added, "Thank goodness it's
open."

toothy critters as long as
their arms can handle it.
In Key West Harbor,
Mottice says the tarpon are
so aggressive that after
four or five fights, his
anglers are asking for
some relief with snapper
fishing. They're also
catching mackerel, sharks
and barracudas. At sunset,
the tarpon/shark combo
has been quite entertain-
ing, with plenty of blacktip
and lemon sharks.
And don't forget - Capt.
Spider Branch's Casting for
Charity continues from 6 to
8 p.m. Thursday at the 7

you get five casts into float-

Marathon will go with Stevie
Sainz on the mound in the
Upper Keys opener tonight.
"Stevie's one of our better
pitchers," he said, adding that
Clay Daniels, Tanner Trivett
and Gabriel Gonzalez will
also see time pitching during
the tournament.
Daniels said Gonzalez
will likely lead off tonight,
followed by Sainz, Trivett,
Randy Culmer, Daniels, Trey
Boyanton, Paul Cadwell,
Teddy Violessi and Jacob
Mahoney.
The infield will comprise
Gonzalez at shortstop,
Boyanton at third, Cadwell at
second and Violessi at first.
Starting second baseman


Lucas Ponzoa will miss the
opening game.
Trivett will play center
field, with Daniels in right
and Mahoney in left. Luis
Leon and Mitchell Heath are
the reserve all-stars for game
one.
The top two South Pool
teams from round-robin play
advance to the District 8
semifinals on July 14. District
8's eventual champion moves
to the regional tournament on
a playoff ladder that could
lead to the Little League
World Series in Williamsport,
Pa.

ISLAMORADA


Sean Fisher carries on his grandfather's work.


Fisher tells his


treasure tales


Salvor presents

talk about

famed 'Atocha'

The Matecumbe
Historical Trust of
Islamorada hosts Sean
Fisher, grandson of famed
treasure salvor Mel Fisher, on
July 11 to discuss the science
of treasure hunting.
Fisher will discuss how
his grandfather led his crew
to the discovery of the
world's richest underwater
treasure find in history, an
estimated $400 million in
coins, jewelry and other
artifacts from the Nuestra
Seniora de Atocha.
The Atocha was part of a
Spanish fleet of ships that
went down in a hurricane in


1622. On Memorial Day
weekend in 1985, Fisher
and his crew found the
ship's mother lode near the
Marquesas Keys, about
halfway between Key West
and the Dry Tortugas.
Salvaging - and finding
treasure - at the site con-
tinues today.
Mel Fisher died in 1998.
At Monday's presentation,
Sean Fisher will discuss the
tools and techniques used by
the Fisher family in their
treasure hunting. He'll bring
some Atocha artifacts with
him.
The presentation will be
held at 6:30 p.m. at Island
Community Church, mile
marker 83. It's free and
open to the public. For more
information, contact Irving
or Jeane Eyster at 664-9504.


LIVING BRIEFS

Airplane lovers
gather Saturday

The Marathon chapter of
the Experimental Aircraft
Association meets at 11:30
a.m. Saturday at the aviation
museum at the east end of
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport. Hamburgers and
sandwiches will be served.


are starting today

Kim Gabel, horticulture
agent for the Monroe County
Cooperative Extension
Service, will conduct three
free workshops this month on
how to manage the Rugose
spiraling whitefly, a nuisance
for landscapes. They are:
* Today from 2 to 3:30
p.m. at the Murray E. Nelson
Government and Cultural
Center, mile marker 102 bay-
side in Key Largo.
* July 12 from 6 to 7:30
p.m. at the Key West Tropical
Forest and Botanical Garden,
5210 College Road, Stock
Island.
* Monday, July 25 from 4
to 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon
Government Center, mile
marker 48.5 bayside.
For more information, call
292-4501.

Senior center
offers line dance

The Dallas MacDonald
Senior Center on Big Pine
Key will continue line-danc-
ing classes throughout the
summer months.
Summer is a good time for
beginners because smaller
classes mean extra individual
help is available, and the
classes are free. No previous
experience is necessary.
Although it began as
country dancing, nowadays
the styles of music vary from
country to Latin, blues, jazz,
fox trot, two-step, waltz and
more.
Classes are held at the
center on Key Deer
Boulevard from 2:30 to 4:30
p.m. Monday and 6:30 to
8:30 p.m. Wednesday. The
instructor is Louise Wood.
For more information call her


at 745-2864.
Also at the center, the
computer club meets the sec-
ond and fourth Saturday of
each month 10 a.m. to noon.
It's for beginner computer
users. There is no official
teacher and it's not a class;
teaching is on a one-to-one
basis, meaning anyone can
teach if someone needs help.


The Marathon
Community Theatre is spon-
soring a poster contest to
mark the 100-year anniver-
sary of the Jan. 12, 1912,
arrival in Key West of the
Florida East Coast Railway.
Original poster designs
should depict the importance
of the event. Applications
and rules can be obtained at
the theater, mile marker 49
oceanside, or by calling
Ginger at 304-7842 or send-
ing an e-mail to arfkeys@
aol.com.

Florida Keys Birding and
Wildlife Festival are looking

mittee meets at Curry

mental fair and family day at
