Stricter- water rules start

It now goes
to once weekly
for landscapes
Senior Staff Writer

Florida Keys lawns go dry
starting Tuesday.
All of South Florida has
been placed.,under one-day-a-
week water restrictions by the
South Florida Water
Management District.
The district has enacted
"the most stringent landscape-
irrigation measures that this
agency has ever had to
impose," district board.
Chairman Eric Buermann said.
County and municipal
code-enforcement officers
will be responsible for enforc-
ing the new restrictions.
"We've been doing it right
along," said a staffer at Key
West Code Enforcement, who
declined to be named. "The
only real difference is that
now it's one day a week
instead of the two it has been."
Residents and businesses in
Monroe County, as of
Tuesday, will be limited to a

one-day-per-week landscape
irrigation schedule, with two
"watering windows" on their
specified day.
Odd street addresses may
irrigate lawns and landscapes
on Mondays between 4 and 8
a.m. or 4 and 8 p.m.
Even street addresses
may irrigate Thursdays
between 4 and 8 a.m. or 4 and
8 p.m.
Hand-watering with one
hose fitted with an automatic
shut-off nozzle is allowed for
10 minutes per day "for land-
scape stress relief and to pre-
vent plant die-off," according
to the water district.
Most of the violations dis-
covered in the Keys under the
current twice-weekly-water-
ing rules could be traced to
automatic sprinkler systems
that were not set properly,
code enforcement officers
The same restrictions take
effect in Miami-Dade,
Broward, Okeechobee, St.
Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach,
Hendry and Glades counties.
"Our lawns do not need to
be watered more than once a
week during the dry season,

and with seasonal rainfall -to
help, it should be more than
enough to maintain a healthy
lawn," Buermann said in a dis-
trict statement.
The main concern is a dry
winter that further drains the
shrinking Lake Okeechobee,
the backup water supply for
South Florida's population of
Lake Okeechobee has
recovered from its record low
depths this spring, but stands
at the lowest point recorded
for mid-November.
By next spring, the lake
could be at new all-time lows,
district Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle said.
"We believe [the new rules]
will significantly help to pro-
tect and stretch our regional
water supplies," Buermann
Other aspects of the new
New landscaping and
lawns can receive additional
water allocations.
No restrictions apply to
other outside water uses, such
as for car and boat washing,
swimming pools, pressure
cleaning or decorative foun-

in jail


The Key Largo teen who
reportedly confessed in
November to 19 burglaries and
three arsons is once again being
held on charges relating to the
2007 crime spree that shocked
Upper Keys residents.
Nineteen-year-old Sammy
Santamaria was recommitted to
the Stock-Island Detention Center
on Wednesday on charges of sec-
ond-degree arson, burglary of a
dwelling and grand theft, Monroe
County Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin said.
Herrin said it was unclear what
prompted the recommittal, but
State Attorney's Office spokesman
Matt Helmerich said a recommit-
tal typically occurs when a judge
revokes bond on someone or a
bondsman decides that he doesn't
want to hold the bond.
Herrin said Santamaria's bond
is set at $175,000.
Santamaria, of Avenue B in
Key Largo, also faces dozens of
other charges in' 10 of the 19
cases he reportedly confessed to,
including burglary of a structure,
possession of burglary tools and
felony criminal mischief,
Helmerich said.
Helmerich said more charges
could be added pending the com-
pletion of reports from law
enforcement agencies and the
state Fire Marshal's Office.
"The thing about this case
that's challenging is that there are
[numerous] places that he hit, and
each one has a whole different set
of charges," Helmerich said.
"This has been the kind of case
that as we continue to get infor-
mation from law enforcement,
his charges are increasing."
Herrin said Santamaria has
been arrested on charges relating
to the crime spree and subse-
quently released on bond several
times since Nov. 6.

Keys Opinion

With sewers, it's all

about the Benjamins

Fifteen words made all the difference.
At least, that what's Marathon City Council member Marilyn
Tempest said when she explained why she was voting "no" on
sewers for now.
This is quite a role reversal for her, since she authored the
city's brave leap forward into central sewers last June.
But Wednesday night, she spent an inordinate amount of time
trying to explain why she would vote no on a citywide sewer
resolution authored by Councilman Mike Cinque.
Calling the language "incendiary," she recited from the reso-
lution: "This commitment is not contingent on the approval of
additional state and federal grant funds."
That was it.
"That's why I can't vote for this resolution," she added. "It
gets everybody on edge."
In the back of the room, most of the voices were grumbling.
They thought the city had made enormous progress at beating
back the naysayers.
Many felt the community had already settled this debate. It
ended on a 3-2 vote. last June and was affirmed in August with
the move to proceed sewering Area 4 (Sombrero Beach
Road/U.S. 1 corridor).
Ah, but there's the rub.
To date, Marathon has received roughly $12 million in sewer
grant money, not the $34 million promised. And Councilman Don
Vasil, who says he won't ever vote for sewers unless the grant
money is here, asked if "that whole $12 million stays in Area 4?"
Ah, now there's another rub.
Cinque proposed taking the $12 million and spreading it
throughout the city. Share the burden, so to speak. His plan would
have increased monthly sewer bills citywide by an estimated $15
a month if no further state or federal monies ever came.
His plan also would have tied up another $215,000 a year
from infrastructure sales tax funds, out of a fund that generates
$2.6 million a year.
But that tax sunsets in 2018, which brought warnings from
Mayor Pete Worthington about how to replace those designat-
ed sales tax monies if voters don't renew that infrastructure tax
a decade from now.
"I'm leery about some of the financing in this plan," the
mayor said.
That brought a quick retort from Cinque, who noted the city's
existing commitment to sewer Area 4 also uses infrastructure
tax funds.
"So anyone who voted for Area 4 voted for 15 percent infra-
structure money," Cinque said.
No one won in the debate Wednesday night.
But it's clear that money still calls the tune. Whose money?
Aye, there's the rub.

Schools aren't the places for people to live

Jerry Coleman, the county's pro-developer
consulting attorney, was recently quoted saying
that zoning for educational uses in Monroe
County's land-use plan does not set any residen-
tial density.
Nonsense. It's not at all odd that the compre-
hensive plan doesn't provide for residential
development in the educational land-use catego-
ry. That zoning designation is for schools, not
for residential development.
A proposed land-plan amendment wending
its way through the county's approval process
was tailored for Ed Swift's proposed residential
development on the grounds of Sugarloaf
School. When the plans were unveiled, it was
pointed out that school grounds aren't zoned for
residential development, thus the push now to
establish, via a land-plan amendment, residential
density (25 units per acre) on school grounds.
The development (25 or so units proposed in
the $200,000 range and higher) to be offered for
ownership ostensibly is to address the shortage
of teacher housing. However, the School Board
acknowledged there is no way to limit purchase
to teachers or School Board employees.
Concerned parents opposing the development
have legitimate concerns about who might live
on the schoolyard and about traffic in and out of
the proposed mini-subdivision.

The developer, out of the kindness of his
heart, agreed to limit his profit to $10,000 per
unit. How generous of him to make only a quar-
ter million dollars profit by the use of our public
Furthermore, considering that more and more
market-rate housing is available in a range not
much higher than the price range of the pro-
posed development, who in their right mind
would buy a deed-restricted home on which
they could not turn a profit by improving it and
later selling it?
It's hard to deny that teachers need housing.
If a critical need exists for teacher housing,
especially for new teachers just out of universi-
ty, the School Board should find a way to build
a small number of rental units in which they
could control who lives. And they would not
have to be on school grounds, where I dare say
not many teachers would want to live anyway.
The School Board owns property other than
where schools are, and that is where School
Board-owned rental housing belongs, not in

Editor's note: The county Planning
Commission on Tuesday approved housing on
school property.

City's not perfect, but county would be worse

To Marathon's municipal reconciliation
movement: There are lots of important things
Marathon can't or won't seem to do. One is'
repaving Little Venice streets turned into
Third World alleys by sewer-pipe installation.
A second is keeping residential neighborhoods
from being used for business vehicle and
material storage. A third is supporting proper-
ty values by getting residents to control their
loose, barking dogs and keep their properties
free of stinking, dead, rotting fish piles.
I was livid recently when Marathon Fire
Rescue could not respond to a medical emer-
gency at my home because a neighbor uses
our street to store his work trailer, and much
of my anger was the result of my perception
that our city manager seems to work harder to
keep his job by reminding the community of
his historic status in it than by doing the hard,
thankless work his position actually requires
him to do.
We all have our complaints. But do you
really think the so-called "gang of three" on
the County Commission is going to divert its
attention from such critically important tasks
as sinking another ship off Key West to fix
my street or get neighborhood bullies to
Has anyone considered vacation rentals?
Affordable accommodations have disappeared
and their upscale replacements are years away.
If we lose vacation rentals as well, who will
shop in our stores and dine in our restaurants?
And what about the Boot Key Bridge? Do
you think "the' gang" will welcome us back

knowing it will be getting the bridge and its
problems back, as well?
Before Marathon's residents are forced to
reconsider Marathon city status, the individu-
als pushing the issue need to step forward, as
those who pushed for city status once did, and
tell us what we will gain by groveling before
the county, begging to take us back.
We all have our complaints about Marathon
city government. But just how are things
going to be better if we are re-accepted by the
county and governed by people who don't
work in trailers just up the street?

Get wind power from existing poles

How is this for an idea? We
have electric power poles that
criss-cross the entire U.S.A. Why
not design a small wind generator
that would sit on top existing
power poles and generate power
directly or indirectly to the exist-

ing power lines? These generators
would be made in the U.S.A., not
China, and be serviced by U.S. cit-
izens. It would create jobs here and
cut our dependence on foreign oil.
Joe Rabito

Some requests for city Public Works

This is an ongoing request. Can
someone please speak to the per-
sons responsible for the grass cut-
ting from White Street to the Palm
Avenue bridge in Key West? It is
very distressing to see cutting after
cutting where the trash is multi-
plied by shredding it and spread
over an ever-greater area that it
was before the mowing occurred.
It takes an extra step to pick up
the trash before the mowing, but
the results will look like we want
the main egress to our lovely
island to look clean and green.
Can someone please talk to the
mowers and get this accomplished?
It is a small thing with big results
in a very high-visibility area.
Also please, if I may request
that lights be placed on the bridge
over the channel on Roosevelt by
Roosevelt Gardens. Me and many
other bicyclers using this bridge
after dark are an accident waiting

to happen, as the homeless drunk
folk collapse on the bridge and you
can't see them till you are ready to
run into them or crash trying to
avoid them.
Just couple of lights, please, like
the ones on the Stock Island
bridge, would effectively deter this
action just as it did for the Stock
Island bridge, making it safe to
travel on after dark.
The south College Road trash
beginning at the Botanical Gardens
areas still are an awful eyesore .in
another high-visibility location, for
nearly four months now. Any plans
to have these large items removed
anytime soon, please? This is an
ongoing request also.
Another wonderful citywide
cleanup would be great to have
scheduled soon. We all feel like we
are making a difference when we
can personally participate.

Injured soldier's mom is thankful

Upon reflection of this year's past
events, I have a lot to be thankful for
and am truly blessed. I have learned
to concentrate on-the positive and not
dwell on the negative.
On July 1, I received a phone call
from the U.S. Army stating.my 23-
year-old daughter, a soldier, was
being airlifted from Germany to
Walter Reed Army Hospital in
Washington, D.C., in critical condi-
tion. She still remains at Walter Reed
and is getting better day by day.
I wanted to say thank you to
everyone who has shown their sup-
port for me and my son these past
months. The generosity of everyone
in Key West is overwhelming.
A huge thank you to Pamn and
Commissioner Clayton Lopez for
never refusing to watch my son while
I make my twice-a-month trips to
Washington. Even though the
Lopezes are still in a Federal
Emergency Management Agency
trailer, they always make room for
my son and never turn me down even
on those last-minute trips.
I especially want to thank the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt.Charitable

Foundation for assuring that my son
and I continued to have a roof over
our heads this past holiday season.
Thank you to Angelica at the
Salvation Army who referred me to
them. Without that referral, I would
no longer have my own apartment.
Thanks to Commissioner Teri
Johnston for locating me and making
sure all this was taken care of. The
compassion she's shown goes far
beyond any mere thank you.
Thank you also to Jim and Vickie
Grant for their support. Their assis-
tance went beyond any "big brother"
program; and to the churches, busi-
nesses and individuals who have
offered their support whether it was
food, assistance with bills, or prayers.
I also want to thank the Monroe
County Health Department for allow-
ing me the time off to visit and see
about my soldier.
And thank you to the mayor and
the entire Key West City
Commission for the special prayer
for my daughter's recovery. God
Bless and I pray for a wonderful new

Don't underestimate our chickens

My new year's resolution is to buy proper-
ty, whether within Monroe County or out, to
make my dream of a rooster park come true.
For a moment, I thought it would
become a reality this January. But there was
a problem and it might fall through.
My vision for the park is it would be a
permanent home for all the chickens not

The Lady Luck was grounded

Hurricane Wilma hit that October

Council: No to citywide sewers

Majority says
more financing
must be in place
Keynoter Staff

Who pays and how much the
city helps offset the cost of sew-
ers divided the Marathon City
Council yet again.
At a special meeting Wednes-
day night, Councilman Mike
Cinque's resolution to spread
existing grant money citywide
instead of just to the Sombrero
area was defeated on a 3-2 vote.
Cinque warned the city will
face consequences from property



$5 million

Part of $100M

promise now
officially funded
U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
and Assistant Secretary of the
Army for Civil Works John Paul
Woodley Jr. were to be in Key
West Friday to sign over $5 mil-
lion in sewer funding for the Keys.
The money was earmarked in
a signing ceremony at the Florida
Keys Eco Discovery Center at
the Truman Waterfront.
The money is part of $100
million allotted for Keys sewers
by Congress in 2000. Over the
years, some $7 million of that has
reached the islands.
Of this $5 million, Key West
will receive $3.6 million, $1.8
goes to Key Largo and $200,000 is
earmarked for Key Colony Beach.
The money is administered by
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and divvied up accord-
ing to an agreement hammered
out by local mayors and represen-
tatives of each municipality.
That agreement, initially
drafted in 2004 and amended in
2006, earmarked $29.5 million
each for Marathon, Islamorada
and unincorporated Monroe. It
also set aside $10.3 million for
Key West, $800,000 for Layton
and. $200,000 for Key Colony .,..

owners scheduled for later phases
of sewer construction if owners
of small package plants are
forced to upgrade by the state by
the 2010 deadline and then forced
to connect to city sewers later -
paying twice.
During a 90 minute-long
debate, the council heard virtual-
ly unanimous support for moving
forward on sewers from every
member of the public who spoke.
When Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest took the microphone
following that public outpouring,
she described the decision as the
"toughest night" to date on the
controversial sewer debate.
"I thought the toughest was
last June when we dove into the
water," she said, reminding
everyone she authored a resolu-
tion that put Marathon on the path
to central sewers.
But Wednesday night, she
voted against Cinque's resolution,
saying she felt the revised sched-
ule was too rushed, "too com-
pressed." And she took issue with
the financing proposed by Cinque
to make un for threatened short-

falls in promised state grants.

Cinque, who had voted against
central sewers last June, said he
was forced to change his mind
when the council majority decid-
ed to do central sewers instead of
smaller package plants serving
individual neighborhoods.
"Now, I say the argument's
been settled. Let's sewer the
entire town," he said.
He explained his resolution
called for two changes in the
financing plans, previously
Increase the city's contribu-
tion of infrastructure sales tax to
20 percent (up from 15 percent).
Fund the remaining capital
costs (not covered by grants) by
charging a higher monthly opera-
tions and maintenance fee.
"We don't know what those
O&M costs will be in the future,"
Mayor Pete Worthington said,
outlining his no vote on the reso-
lution. "Running these seven
plants, we don't know what it
will cost. Will it be $50, $70,
$100 a month?"
Cinque said he based his plan
on financial assumptions already
adopted by the council majority
at the August meeting. And he
argued the only difference

between his plan and the city's
current schedule is $215,000. a
year more committed from the
infrastructure tax fund and $180
yearly ($15 a month) increase in
O&M expenses.
"You took that train out of the
gate at these figures," Cinque
said. "To complete the rest of the
town, let's add that $215,000 a
year in infrastructure and let's
add that $3,600 over 20 years," or
$180 a year in operations and
Councilman Don Vasil said
his no vote was tied to his cam-
paign pledge "not to proceed [on
sewers] without funds from the
state or the feds."
After the lengthy debate, only
Cinque and Vice Mayor Chris
Bull voted for the revised city-
wide sewer schedule.
After losing on that vote, Bull
asked city staff if they knew how
to proceed.
The next big vote comes to sign
contracts for construction work to
begin in Area 6 (Coco Plum).
City staff was asked to bring
back to council the latest propos-
al for Area 5, which includes
acquiring the Little Venice plant
from the Aqueduct Authority.

Workshop to examine unincorporation

Jan. 25 meeting
called for village,
Marathon residents

On New Year's Eve, 2007,
the village of Islamorada cele-
brated 10 years as a municipal-
ity independent from Monroe
But in the first month of
2008, some residents question
whether Islamorada will keep
that status for an 11th year.
In late January, the
Islamorada Village Council is
slated to meet with state and
local officials to discuss dis-
solving the village, returning
municipal functions to Monroe
-State Rep. Ron Saunders
said he requested the work-
shop, which is tentatively
scheduled for Jan. 25, in
response to requests from
Islamorada residents who have
been pushing to dissolve the
municipality. A similar effort is
taking place with some

Marathon residents who want
to dissolve that city.
"People approached me
with this," Saunders said.. "It
wasn't my idea. But when
someone comes into my office
and says, will you look into
this, I can't just ignore it
because it's an issue I don't
feel like dealing with."
Saunders said he asked the
Monroe County Commission
whether the county would be
able and willing to assume the
financial obligations of
Islamorada and Marathon if the
municipalities are dissolved.
If the commission says no,
Saunders says, he'll drop the
But if it says yes, he'll
decide whether to file legisla-
tion to put the issue to a vote in
Islamorada and Marathon.
He said it's unlikely that
Monroe County citizens living
outside those two municipali-
ties would get a vote.
"As a taxpayer in Monroe
County, I would assume those
obligations [from Marathon
and Islamorada]. That's why I

wanted the County
Commission to represent all of
Monroe County," he said.
Saunders said proponents of
unincorporation claim to have
garnered 400 to 500 signatures
from residents in favor of dis-
solving the village, which
they'll soon turn into Saunders
for verification.
Islamorada resident Robert
Page, who's been pushing for
unincorporation for about four
years, said he mailed the peti-
tions to every Islamorada
household on the registered
voters list, and that "hundreds
and hundreds" of petitions
have been signed and mailed
back to him.
Page said the village has
never completed a project on
time and on budget, and that
"elected officials interject
themselves into the operation
of the village and continually
give instructions to the staff.
The village attorney has
repeatedly warned elected offi-
cials that their job is to set pol-
icy and not to interfere in the
management of the village."
He also accused Islamorada
of "poor fiscal management"

and referenced a slew of loans,
a lack of financial accountabil-
ity and an overrun of more than
$1 million for the wastewater
system on Plantation Key.
But some Islamorada offi-
cials say Page's movement
lacks muscle.
"I would say if it went to
referendum it would be over-
whelmingly defeated," Mayor
Dave Boerner said. "There is a
certain group in town that has
always complained about the
village and would like to unin-
corporate, but at the same time
if you take the level of taxes
paid north of Tavernier Creek
and south of Tavernier Creek,
our taxes are actually margin-
ally lower, and we provide a
higher level of services."
"We've had our growing
pains, but we're doing very
well," Boerner said. "Even
though last year we met the
state budget crunch, we didn't
take a single dime out of
reserves. The county took $10
million out of their reserves.

We're tight, there's no fat in
the budget anywhere, but
we're functioning financially
very well now."
"If the county is not willing
to accept the responsibility of
taking on the village and meet-
ing our level of services, it's a
moot point," Boerner added.
County Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy said the com-
mission is far from making a
"I wouldn't have a clue,"
Murphy said when asked
where the commission stands.
"We have not discussed it, we
have no information other than
the announcement that was
made at the last BOCC meet-
ing. I honestly can't even tell
you how I feel about it,
because we have no informa-
tion to go on."
Murphy said the county
attorney and budget manager
would need to research the
issue before the commission
can make a decision.

Council snuffs out fire tax

Majority says
find the money
in the budget

Islamorada won't charge res-
idents an extra fee for emer-
gency services this year, but
expected state budget cuts of
about $2 billion have village
officials worried about already
pinched police and fire budgets.
Thursday, the Islamorada
Village Council closed the door
on an assessment beyond what
residents pay in property taxes
for fire and emergency services,
voting 3-2 against allowing Fire
Chief William Wagner to adver-
tise for public hearings.
Wagner had requested
$982.40 to advertise hearings,

which would have to be held
before March 1, on an assess-
He implored council mem-
bers to listen to state Rep. Ron
Saunders, who hours earlier
told the council to expect the
2008-09 state budget to be
about $2 billion less than the
current one, which was cut by
$1.1 billion last October.
"We do have a very, very
tight [village] budget right now.
That's across the board. We
have no reserves," Wagner said.
Wagner said an assessment
would leave more property tax
money for other services
including police, for which the
village pays the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
Before a fire fee could be
implemented, Wagner said the
village would have to pay for a

study to decide how much to
charge residential and commer-
cial property owners.

something in the hands of the

people, do you take it away?"
But Mayor Dave Boerner,
who voted in December for
Wagner to seek legal permis-
sion for implementing a fire
assessment, said he stopped
supporting the assessment
because a study would cost the
village money.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill and
Councilman Mike Reckwerdt
"The whole point of the
assessment is to go around ad
valorem [property taxes], and I
don't buy into it," Reckwerdt
said, "If we get through the
budget and we can't find the
money, then the ad valorem [tax
rate] goes up."
Boerner said that if neces-
sary, the council could raise the
property tax rate with a four-
fifths majority vote later in the
budget process.

Saunders brings bad news


Despite a poor outlook for
state funding, the Islamorada
Village Council approved more
money for wastewater consult-
ants and will look into hiring its
own engineer.
At its meeting Thursday, state
Rep. Ron Saunders told the coun-
cil that his plan to fund Keys
wastewater systems through state
bonding will likely fail because
of $2, billion in anticipated state
budget cuts.
Saunders said he's working on
other funding options, including
federal funding and bonding
through programs such as Florida
Forever and Save Our
He asked the council to con-
tinue moving forward, and said
the state won't overlook the 2010
advanced wastewater compliance
deadline because of a "bad budg-
et year."
Soon after Saunders spoke,
the council voted 4-1 to pay an
additional $57,000 to consulting
firm E-Sciences for design
reviews and construction engi-
neering inspections of the

Plantation Key wastewater treat-
ment system.
Utilities Director Myles
Milander said E-Sciences is per-
forming administrative applica-
tions necessary for a "final close-
out" on Phase 1 of the system,
and to work toward a closeout of
Phase 2.
Councilman Mike Reckwerdt
cast the opposing vote.
"I think if we look back at
what we've spent [with E-
Sciences], it's going to horrify
us," Reckwerdt said. "As long as
we keep awarding contracts and
signing these checks with our
vote, we're going to keep pump-
ing money into soft costs, and we
are going to continue to have, in
my opinion, dismal failures."
Mayor Dave Boemer said he
also wants change, but that E-
Sciences "provides a service we
can't provide ourselves."
The council unanimously
approved $30,000 for E-Sciences
to continue researching a decen-
tralized sewer system for Lower
Matecumbe Key, and voted to
form a nine-person steering com-
mittee to oversee the project.

At a special wastewater meet-
ing on Jan. 17, the council will
discuss hiring an engineer to'
reduce consulting costs.

FIRM to keep up the fight into 2008

Policy changes
set to expire
at end of year

One of the few positive
byproducts of the 2004-05 hur-
ricane seasons was a grassroots
group of citizens who managed
to effect real wind-insurance
policy change where others in
government and industry failed.
The group Fair Insurance
Rates in Monroe, or FIRM, was
largely instrumental in getting
state legislation drafted and

It's latest idea
for access to
isolated island
Keynoter Staff

The cost to haul lobster traps
or other bulky items to Boot
Key could be $5,500 per day,
the Marathon City Council
learned at its Tuesday meeting.
The council heard an update
on businesses that require trans-
port to Boot Key now that the
bridge to the island is closed,
needing expensive repairs.
The $5,500 covers the cost
for a barge with a crane that
could haul bulk goods to the
island. Last month, the council
heard that a ferry service to
transport workers to the island
does not have enough passen-
gers to continue.
City Manager Mike Puto
advised the council that
appraisals on the value of Boot
Key with and without bridge
access are due back in early
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest asked for a list of
needs before authorizing any
barge service at city expense.
In other action, the council
named Vice Mayor Chris Bull
the liaison with the Monroe
County School District to dis-
cuss options for Marathon
Manor, a former nursing home

passed last year that reduced
windstorm rates in the Keys by
up to 30 percent. FIRM's influ-
ence also prodded the state's
Office of Insurance Regulation
to reject a 25-percent rate
increase requested by the
state's -insurer of last resort,
Citizens Property Insurance
Not bad for a group of Keys
business and homeowners reel-
ing from shock upon opening
their 2006 Citizens bills.
But some of the key reforms
included in last year's legisla-
tion will expire Dec. 31 so
FIRM is putting pressure on

adjacent to Marathon High
School that was acquired by the
School Board two years ago.
Among options being dis-
cussed are rehabbing the
47,000-square-foot building for
use as a possible future city
hall, commercial offices or
affordable apartments.
Bull was asked to bring back
more specifics along with costs
to see if the city has interest in
pursuing further negotiations
with the school district.
Also Tuesday, city officials
heard from, state Rep. Ron
Saunders' office on a petition to
dissolve the city.
Holly Merrill, Saunders' leg-
islative assistant, explained the
state statutes that govern abol-
ishing a municipality and said
Saunders is merely following
She added that Saunders
"didn't mean to step on any
toes" by raising the question
last month with the County
Commission, but that step is
one of many outlined in state
A suggestion by resident
Fred Endemann to add the
question to the November bal-
lot met with little support.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
petition sponsor Sally Buehler
has refused numerous invita-
tions to a public meeting.

Tallahassee to make them per-
One of the key provisions
FIRM wants to make perma-
nent is the change in the so-
called "use and file" practice,
where an insurance company
increases rates before receiving
approval from the state.
"We want them to ask per-
mission before they ask for for-
giveness," FIRM board mem-
ber Heather Carruthers said.
The legislation passed last
year prohibits companies from
increasing rates more than 10
percent within a 12-month peri-
od without receiving state
FIRM is also pushing the
state to use sales-tax revenue
collected from purchases of
products for rebuilding and
repairing storm-damaged
homes toward Florida's cata-
strophic fund, which secures re-
insurance insurance for
insurance companies for the
private sector and Citizens.
Caruthers said the state
received more than $4 billion in
sales-tax revenue from rebuild-
ing and repair purchases result-

ing from the '04 and '05 storm
The state should also contin-
ue to provide matching funds
for fortifying homes against
storm damage, Carruthers said.
Although most Keys resi-
dents are insured by Citizens,
some honfeowners were
switched to so-called takeout
companies, including Florida
Peninsula, which hiked rates to
sometimes twice what Citizens
was charging.
Last year's law gives con-
sumers the right to go back to
Citizens if a takeout company
charges rates 15 percent higher
than Citizens.
FIRM is also pressuring
state lawmakers to permanently
do away with the so-called
Panhandle exemption, where
homes on the state's Panhandle
weren't subject to the same
building standards as homes in
the rest of the state. -
Carruthers said a big reason
people waited so long for their
claims to be processed after the
'04 and '05 seasons was the
lack of staff claims adjusters.
Citizens had a staff of two

claims adjusters after the 2004
storm season to deal with
23,000 claims, she said. In the
2005 season, the company had
eight adjusters to deal with
30,000 claims.
The company's solution was
to hire outside adjusters, but
many who were hired didn't
understand South Florida,
Carruthers said.
"An adjuster from Billings,
Mont., may know what to do
about snow on your roof, but
not if the wind blew your roof
off," Carruthers said.
Through the work of a state
task force, of which Carruthers
is a member, Citizens is expect-
ed to have 75 staff adjusters by
the end of 2008, she said.
Much of FIRM's success
had to do with its members get-
ting the word out and getting
people involved, mostly with
actions like calling and writing
to lawmakers. The next legisla-
tive session begins in March,
and Carruthers said to expect
similar requests from FIRM.
"We want people to know
that the fight is not over,"
she said.


Would it be called

the Boot Key Barge?

College names new provost

new VP for

In a move described as
broadening the influence and
improving efficiency of Florida
Keys Community College,
Charles Shaffer was named
full-time provost.
In a related move, John
Kehoe was hired as the new

Shaffer, a FKCC professor
of biology for 12 years and a
professor at numerous colleges
for 46 years, is ready to "create

"He brings a wealth of expe-

to focus more on meeting with

Kehoe was formerly

hearing delayed


A Keys hearing to decide
whether Stock Islanders will see
their sewer bills increase has
been delayed after the owner of
KW Resort Utilities requested an
emergency continuance.
Attorneys for the utility's
owner, Bill Smith, say the plant
might sell soon.
The utility is looking for the
increase to help pay for upgrades
and cover operational costs until
all of the 1,500 households that
should be using the private sewer
system get hooked up.
In September, the state Public
Service Commission approved a
temporary increase of an average
$8 monthly.
According to KW Resort
Utility's filing, the average resi-
dential bill is $40. If the overall
57 percent rate hike it seeks were
approved, it would drive cus-
tomer's monthly bills to more
than $60 a month.
The hearing was planned for
"Currently, certain discussions
are occurring between the utility
and a public entity regarding the
possibility of sale of the utility,"
according to a KW Resort
Utilities motion filed Jan. 7. "The
sale of the utility would render

this rate case moot...."
Over the past several years,
the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority, the public sewer
authority, has entertained notions
of acquiring the utility. Executive
Director Jim Reynolds says the
price has always been too high.
Thursday, FKAA Deputy
Executive Director Kerry Shelby
said there were were no official negoti-
ations underway with KW Resort
"We're certainly not actively
negotiating with them," Shelby
said. "But we've been open to the
acquisition for years. We haven't
sat down in a face to face to kick
around ideas, but we are interest-
ed to see if they have any inter-
Shelby said FKAA ownership
would provide an economy of
scale that could drive down rates
for everyone, especially if the
county were able to use the plant

Lawsuit: Video leads to harassment

Plaintiff: Cops
are annoyed
and target him

A former bicycle rider, avid
video tape recorder and self-pro-
claimed carpenter and "pig fish-
erman" is suing the city of Key
West for what he calls harass-
ment from the Key West Police
Scott Harrington, known as
"Cameraman" to the youth in
Bahama Village, moved to that
community six years ago from

New Town. It's a fitting nick-
name: He says he carried around
a video camera while pedaling
the area for eight to 10 hours a
day for three years until 2006.
Harrington said he stopped
filming after a resident threat-
ened him.
What was he filming? Almost
every move Bahama Village
police officers made.
But Harrington's unusually
strong desire for transparency in
monitoring local law enforce-
ment coupled with his hostile
attitude toward police has land-
ed him 15 traffic tickets -

the Keys since 1994, according
to Monroe County Court docu-
Harrington's laundry list of
arrests reveals offenses as petty
as running a stop sign on his
bicycle, and some as serious as
assault on an officer.
The latter charge, according
to Harrington, was from kissing
officer Eric Defillipo on the
cheek after he put his arm
around Harrington for a "trophy
photo." The charge was
Records show that in Monroe
County, he's had 11 arrests for
non-traffic violations, many of
which were tossed or dropped
by the State Attorney's Office.

"They are very aggressive in
Bahama Village," Harrington
said, "and with issues they real-
ly don't care about anywhere
else. If I throw a cigarette butt
on the ground, they get me for
All of this led to his Jan. 8 fil-
ing of the lawsuit in Monroe
County Circuit Court against

officers DeFilippo, Kelly
Thomas, Blair Lowe and Carter
Harrington is asking for dam-
ages in excess of $15,000.
Police spokeswoman Christie
Phillips said the department's
policy is to not comment on
pending litigation.
Lowe resigned in 2004 after
the arrest of an ornery 16-year
girl in Bahama Village.
A police report of the inci-
dent says Harrington, while
observing that arrest, started
yelling to attract a large crowd
while filming the incident. He
repeatedly called the officers
"pigs" and swung his Sony cam-
era at one officer, the report
A background check from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office

Web site shows Harrington told
officers he was a "pig fisher-
man" when arrested a not-so-
subtle indication of his feelings
toward the department.
Harrington, 45, also created
bumper stickers that state:
"Black and blue: Another victim
of the Key West Police
He said it became difficult
for him to find carpentry work
during and after the tapings,
claiming the Code Enforcement
Department told clients not to
do business with him.
City and state records indi-
cate that Harrington does not
have a contracting license but is
qualified as a "quality control
consultant," one who gives
readings on mold and other
details in buildings.
Attorney Jiulio Margalli rep-
resents Harrington in his law-
suit, which states Harrington has
"suffered severe mental anguish
and loss income in connection
with the deprivation of his liber-
ty and constitutional and statu-
tory rights...."
Harrington's complaint is the
third suit filed against city
police the past five weeks.

Jones retiring after 11 years in job

Key West official
cites health woes
for the decision

Key West Assistant City
Manager John Jones is retiring
May 1.
He sent City Manager Jim
Scholl a letter Monday citing
physical maladies throughout his
tenure such as four-way heart
bypass surgery, two knee replace-
ments and diabetes.
Jones, 76, has worked for the
city since 1993. He's been assis-
tant city manager for 11 years.
"Even though these physical
problems have so far in my opin-
ion not affected my ability to per-
form my job satisfactory and
recent physicals confirm I am
presently OK, the odds. are not
favorable what I will remain so,"
he wrote to Scholl.
Jones wrote that he would be
available to work with the city
under contract in "any other
capacity you need for as long as
my health allows me."
Scholl responded: "I do
believe your corporate knowl-
edge and your longstanding rela-
tionship with this city can contin-
ue to serve us in a positive man-

McCoy: Give DEP power

Keys obituary

FKAA official
says it wouldn't
affect sewer work

The Monroe County Com-
mission hopes to encourage the
state to play a bigger .role in
sewer installation in the Keys.
A resolution on this week's
commission agenda is the first
The commission meets
Wednesday starting at 9 a.m. at
the Harvey Government Center
in Key West. At 1:30 p.m., it
will consider a resolution tag-
ging the state Department of
Environmental Protection with
oversight of Keys sewer con-
Kerry Shelby, deputy execu-
tive director of the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority, says the
move wouldn't change his
agency's role in overseeing
planning, construction and
management of sewer systems
throughout most of unincorpo-
rated Monroe County.
"This is really more of a con-
cept right now, to keep the state
engaged," he said. "The
Aqueduct is just a partner with
the county. This would make
DEP the glue that keeps us all

The resolution, brought forth
by Mayor Sonny McCoy, "The
county requests that the state
commit the resources of the
DEP to serve as the entity to
manage the funding, the design
and the implementation to
advance the provision of waste-
water treatment facilities for the
Florida Keys."
"This would bring them to
the table," Shelby said, "to
make DEP a clearinghouse for
how the projects are progress-
According to the resolution,
responsibility and authority for
sewer work in the Keys has
been fragmented among a num-
ber of agencies. McCoy has
long argued that the way the
process works now, with sever-
al local sewer authorities, is not
The resolution says, "It is in
everyone's benefit to have one
comprehensively engineered
program for the sewering" of
the Keys.
Also on tap for Wednesday:
A public hearing to allow
seasonal residential units within
parcels zoned for recreational
vehicles. This would allow
redevelopment of more perma-
nent seasonal homes in areas
formerly restricted to RVs.

Approval to obtain an
appraisal on the county-owned
Plantation Key Public Works
building. It's used for storage
and its sale could generate rev-
+ An agreement paying
$136,000 to the Monroe County
School District to upgrade
Poinciana Elementary School in
Key West to serve as a shelter of
last resort in case of a hurricane.
An update on the status of
the sale of the Hickory House.
The county bought the Stock
Island restaurant more than a
year ago as a way to maintain
public waterfront access but has
decided to sell. In June, the
owners of King's Pointe
Marina, next door to the proper-
ty, offered $3.1 million for the
parcel but the sale has not yet
gone through.
A moratorium on issuing
building permits on Big Pine
and No Name keys. The freeze,
which the Planning Com-
mission recommends against
imposing, would last until mid-
July if approved.
+ Two moratoria involving
hotel and motel rooms. One
would extend an existing freeze
on creation of any new rooms.
A second would freeze a devel-
oper's ability to transfer RV
units to a different site to use as
a hotel or motel room.

owned it since 1975.

Amsterdam's mansion doesn't
feature plasma flat-screen televi-
sions or an extensive collection
of Maseratis in the driveway like
so many Hollywood celebrities
boast on TV and in magazines.
So what makes the Curry
Mansion Inn so attractive to visi-
tors and locals, and so widely
popular, that it ranks No. 64 on
Conde Nast Travelers' 2006

Good old-fashioned class with
heaps of Victorian charm.
Mind you, Amsterdam is not a
22-year-old hip-hop artist laced
with bling-brlirg;,' tdidntifihg' MV

cameras. She wasn't thrilled
about seeing her age in print, so
let's just say she's wise enough to
have watched Franklin Delano
Roosevelt give an inaugural
speech or two.
But take away the white,
closely cropped hair, and it's pos-
sible cashiers would check her
driver's license before selling her
a bottle of wine because of her
youthful energy.
"I go to a lot of parties," she
said, laughing. "I go to more par-
ties than anybody."
Conde Nast calls her the
"grande dame" of Key West. Old
pictures and portraits of
Amsterdam reveal a striking
brunette who would rival any of
today's cover girls,.

exudes that beauty under her
light blue hat are even lighter
blue eyes. She treats entering
guests from all over the world as
a warm hostess or an old friend.
Keeping up the mansion takes
up most of her time, though she
still manages to volunteer for
nonprofits such as the Red Cross,
Wesley House Family Services
and Habitat for Humanity. She
hangs out at the Key West Yacht
Club, where she's a member.
But the mansion has been her
-livelihood since 1975, when she
purchased it for $120,000 with
her then-husband Al, for residen-
tial use. He's since'died.

Register today for UM fair

It's at three
Keys locations'
in two weeks
University of Miami Medical
School students and staff return
to the Keys Jan. 26 for their
annual Florida Keys Health Fair.
It's planned for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
at Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon; the Methodist and
Baptist churches at 280 Key Deer
Blvd., Big Pine Key; and Key
West High School, 2100 Flagler
You can avoid lines at the
popular fair by preregistering
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the
fair's locations, except for on Big
Pine, where preregistration is at
the senior center, 380 Key Deer
Blvd., behind the fire station.
The Florida Keys Health Fair
was established in 1971 by Iris
Keim, a Big Pine resident and
retired professor of family medi-
cine and epidemiology and pub-
lic health, who recognized the
necessity of addressing the med-
ical and educational needs of the
underserved population of
Monroe County.
Over the years, the annual
event has come to provide many
health services at free or reduced
cost to Keys residents unable to
access routine medical care.
The fair provides screening

for the most prevalent diseases in
our community including hyper-
tension, diabetes, high choles-
terol, vision loss, obesity, depres-
sion, hepatitis, osteoporosis, and
colon, breast, cervical and skin
Using a referral system of free
clinics, the fair also acts as a por-
tal for entry to care for patients
identified to be at risk. All of the
-services offered are provided by
volunteer physicians, health-care
workers and medical students.
Since its inception, the Florida
Keys Health Fair has grown to
provide needed services in the
Middle and Lower Keys for near-

ly 1,000 patients every year.
Free health screenings and
education include smoking-ces-
sation counseling, bone-density
tests, mental-health screening,
children's health evaluations,
blood-glucose tests, HIV testing,
breast exams, and male genital
and rectal exams. There also is $5
testing for prostate cancer screen-
ing, pap smears and cholesterol
tests (for the blood-glucose and
cholesterol tests, you must not eat
for eight hours before arriving for
the tests).

Through adversity comes 'enduring love'

Decker's latest
goes on display

F an Decker started paint-

community fundraisers and

her new

work has
Judi Bradford ably in
months, reflecting what she calls
a "dark depth," but also a feeling
of sturdy grounding. The artist is
known for an unflinching fear-
lessness with bright, tropical col-
A tough year in which
Decker's husband, Bob, battled
cancer at first with a grim prog-
nosis, but ultimately triumphant,
shows up in the colorations and
subjects that came off the end of
Fran's brush.
Symbolisms emerged that
pictured the unknown way
ahead; hope sprouted in flowers,
fruits and eggs, and the bright
sunny scenes returned at the end

of the year and the end of the
"Peppers," an autumn paint-
ing, has a hopeful humor and
won a prize at the Key West Art
Center's juried show.
"'Pomegranates,' the final
painting of the year, is all about
enduring love," Becker says. "At
the October checkup, Bob was
cancer free."

Faces and stories
New York photographer Curt
Richter shows more than 50
portraits of southern writers at
The Studios of Key West this
Monday through Feb. 15. The
exhibit opens with a reception 6
to 9 p.m. Thursday at the
Studios, 600 White St.
Richter uses a platinum print-
ing process in the darkroom

instead of the more common sil-
ver print. Each image, individual-
ly developed the old-fashioned
way, has a unique lustrous quality.
The Collector's Guide
calls the platinum process,
patented in 1873, the "sine qua
non of photographic art."
Alfred Stieglitz, Edward
Weston, Edward S. Curtis and
other well-known black-and-
white photography pioneers used
the process. i
Richter's work can be found
in the New York Museum of
Modern Art, the Victoria and
Albert Museum in London and
the Bibliotheque Nationale in
Paris. The photographer has

been the recipient of a
Guggenheim fellowship and a
Fulbright Senior Scholar award.
"Faces & Stories" is support-
ed by the Southern Arts
Federation and comes to The
Studios of Key West through
local benefactors and a partner-
ship between the Studios and the
Key West Literary Seminar.
The collection was originally
commissioned by Louis D. >
Rubin Jr. to document the -
founding members of the
Fellowship of Southern Writers.
Eudora Welty was the first
to sit for Richter and the list
includes Rita Mae Brown, Pat
Conroy, Reynolds Price,
William Styron and more.

The story: Debra's husband

Marty, played by Tom O'Neil,
has from day one been a wom-

things. Molly's husband
Danny, played by Paul
Buckley, borders on stalking
his own wife, following her

were nearly packed, creating a

pulled out on only one side
because of small crowds.
The thousand or so students
- who had each bought a $2

WRESTLE / From 41

Soares was the favorite, but
the spinning Labrador gave
him all he could handle as the
two became entwined like
pretzels. Suddenly, Soares lift-
ed Labrador and slammed him
to the mat.
After two periods, Soares
led, 8-4. Before the third peri-
od began, most of the students
filed out. The 4 o'clock bell
had sounded, the school day
was over, and more important
things apparently loomed.
With maybe a hundred
young fans left, Soares fended
off a pin attempt and defeated
Labrador, 20-8. Labrador
stretched out on the wooden
floor to contemplate the
defeat. Later, in the sunshine
of the gym lobby, he said,
"He's a lot stronger and in bet-
ter shape than I am."
Coral Shores coach Mark
Terrill said Soares had set out
to outmuscle Labrador.
"Once he quit doing that

and began using the tech-
niques we've taught him, he
settled down." Terrill said.
Key West won the final
three matches.
Sophomore Dylan Barber
(130 pounds) pinned Dylan
Venninni, junior Oscar
Fernandez (119) used a three-
quarter nelson to pin Yordan
Polanco with 16 seconds left
in the second period, and jun-
ior Greg Garcia (112) pinned
Daniel Doyle in 30 seconds.
Afterward, with all the stu-
dents gone and the mat being
cleared from the floor, Key
West coach John Moeller said,
"The big surprise was Oscar.
He took nothing but beatings
for two and a half years, but
suddenly he's come alive."
The victory was especially
satisfying for Fernandez, who
had psyched himself by danc-
ing around before the match
with an iPod in his ear.
He had lost to Polanco in
early December, but not this
time. "Three-quarter nelson,"
he said with a smile.

Conchs already top seed

SOCCER / From 41

ed going into the district tour-
Freshman Jasmine Jones
scored both goals for Key
West, setting a school fresh-
man season record with 14.
The Canes (12-3-1) got two
early goals from the wings,
sophomore Chelsea Russell
hitting from the right side
about six minutes in, and sen-
ior Brooks Burdick scoring
from the left 10 minutes later.
But the Conchs stayed
active and were rewarded with
the two Jones scores.
"Their second goal was
well-earned, a solid shot that
hit the crossbar with a nice
follow-up," Arsenault said.
"That happens."
He was less pleased with
Key West's first goal, a play
off a short direct kick.
"We got caught sleeping,
totally off guard," he said. "I
don't think that will happen

Arsenault said sophomore
midfielder Andrea Cockerham
played a "brilliant" game both
ways. "She played smart
defense and made several
well-timed runs out of the
back that ended up creating
scoring opportunities."
Paul was not distressed by
the outcome, since the Conchs
(11-5-1) already own the top
seed in their tournament with
a 10-0 record against District
16-4A foes.
Some regulars like center
midfielder Kara Haack are
still slowed by nagging
injuries, he said.
"Playing Coral Shores is
just as intense as ever, but it's
more of a friendly rivalry now
since we know each other so
well, and some of our girls
play together [on-travel teams]
in the off-season," he said.
As the 16-4A top seed, Key
West opens tournament play
Wednesday against a first-
round winner.
Coral Shores, second seed
in District 16-3A, plays third
seed Archbishop Carroll in
Miami on Thursday. Start time
and location had not been con-
firmed as of press time.

Cane JV wins
The Lady Hurricane junior
varsity topped their Key West
counterparts, 6-0, Wednesday.
Amber Spaulding led the
Cane JV offense, with support
from Careni Lopez, Maddie
Ingegno and Aracelli Ornelas.
Val Ostenson got the shutout
in goal, with help by defend-
ers Michaela Walters and
Gaby Munoz.
"After coming off of a long
holiday break for most of the
players, I really enjoyed
watching them work so hard
together," JV coach Andy Van
Sickle said.
The Cane JV (7-3) finished
its season Friday against
Marathon's varsity.

break before resuming regular-season play this past
week. Next on the schedule is a home game at 2 p.m.

'We ran out of gas'

Conchs' 2nd half
allows Mater
a 67-32 romp
Keynoter Contributor

Scoring its lowest number of
points of the season, the Key
West High School boys basket-
ball team was defeated, 67-32,
by Mater Academy in a District
16-4A game Tuesday in Miami.
Key West, which lost the first
meeting between the teams, 76-
65, was down by only six points
at halftime. But after coach Paul
Davis' usual we-can't-let-down-

in-the-third-quarter speech,, the
Conchs were outscored, 26-4, in
the third period.
They scored just 11 points in
the second half as they fell to 3-
11 overall and 1-5 in the district.
"We were trying, but we
couldn't get rebounds," said
Davis. "We were tired and final-
ly kind of ran out of gas."
Mired in a scoring slump, the
Conchs got only two points from
forward Vladimyr Sibera and
none from point guard Keith
Valdez both were hampered
by injuries..
Michael Gallagher, who had a
cold-shooting game, led Key

West with nine. points, and
David Ruiz added eight.
The Conchs still have not
won a district road game in
Davis' three seasons as coach. -_
He said one of the reasons is
that the Miami-area teams can
lure better talent.
"Down here, we don't have
much to choose from," he said.
"We just don't have the depth -
a good three or four players, and
you need more than that. But
we're not giving up."
Key West, which played late
Friday against Monsignor Pace,
will play Ronald Reagan at 7
