Commission lifts Big Pine

building moratorium

Mitigation costs
far too expensive
says county board

The Monroe County
Commission, in a 4-1 vote, fol-
lowed the advice of the county's
Planning Commission and threw
out a moratorium on issuing
building permits on Big Pine and
No Name keys.
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy was the sole dissenting
The commission did not dis-
cuss its decision to end the
freeze, but three public speakers
encouraged the commission to
extend the moratorium until
county staff can come up with a
mitigation plan that doesn't

ronmental organization Last

Stand, said the group is in favor

the county comes up with a plan

protecting the endangered key

Commission quickly rejected a
proposal that would have

Commission voted unanimously
against renewing the moratori-
um, pointing out that it only real-
ly means the issuance.of a hand-
ful of permits.
The HCP allows eight new

able rate homes annually for the
next 20 years on the two islands.

It allows only two market rate

December and this month.
The county will mitigate
those permits from its own miti-
gation bank. The county has
been using publicly owned lands
for private mitigation over the

Watering rules
now in effect

First it was three days a
week, then two, and now
Keys residents have just one -
day to legally water lawns
under the tightest water
restrictions ever. .
The new landscape irriga-
tion and outdoor water usage
rules took effect Tuesday.
From Key West to West
Palm Beach and throughout
Okeechobee, St. Lucie,
Martin, Hendry and Glades
counties, watering lawns and.
plants is allowed only on
Mondays or Tuesdays,
depending on street address.
Watering must be done
between 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. or 4
p.m. to 8 p.m., except for
very large properties.
Because of continuing
drought conditions, the South
Florida Water Management
District enacted "the most
stringent landscape-irrigation
measures" the agency has
ever imposed, Eric
Buermann, chairman of the
district's governing board,
said in a statement.
Landscape watering con-
sumes up tohalf of the -water
used by homes in South
Florida, according to the
water management district.
Watering restrictions start-
ed last year because of low
rainfall in 2006 and 2007,
which brought Lake
Okeechobee, the region's
water supply backstop,, to
record low levels. :

new operation's introduction to
the community. "We want to get
the word out to let people know
our intentions," Barra said.
"There's about 30 people
involved. We've been working
seven days a week to get the
property cleaned up," Batra said.
"There's a lot to be done."
The site, oceanside at mile
marker 59, features the large
water body, a former borrow pit
filled with saltwater that moves
through the porous rock.
The facility has been the scene
of several attempts to commer-
cially grow food-fish species,
mainly snapper. Researchers with
the University of Miami also
maintained an experimental
aquaculture hatchery there.
Most recently, a European
company called Marine Farms
operated the facility as the
Aquaculture Center of the
Florida Keys, and shifted the pri-
mary focus to cobia, a pelagic
species which grow much larger
and faster than snapper.

But to grow sufficient quanti-
ties of fish for commercial sale,
Marine Farms required more
space. Unable to afford the costs
to expand in the Keys, the com-
pany decamped for Belize "sev-
eral months ago," say local resi-
dents familiar with the operation.
Cobia, mutton snapper, man-
grove snapper and schoolmasters
left over from the fish-farming
attempt live in the pond, fed reg-
ularly by the caretakers.
"It's an entirely different sys-
tem of life out there," Barra said.
Eventually, the Marathon
Aqua Ranch hopes to grow
enough fish to supply a restaurant
the operators envision for the site.
Remains of the fish could be
used to grow an array of organic
foods also on the menu, Barra
said. "It's a whole circle-of-life
thing," he said.
The site also could offer eco
tours and research opportunities,
he said.
Today's fishing contest appar-
ently is fully legal, with regular
size limits and license restrictions
Registration opens at 11 a.m.

Village may boost fees


Finance Director Alice
Filinovich reported.
According to their report, the
increase puts Islamorada's rate
on par with other Keys-utilities,
including the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District,
which charges $54.68 for a
home producing the same
amount of wastewater.
But residents complained that
they don't want to pay more for

Plantation Key resident
Arthur Black said that a 2006
sewage backup in his home
caused several companies to
transfer his home insurance pol-
icy, which has increased signifi-
cantly since the incident. He said
he worries that soon, no compa-
ny will insure his home.
"I really don't care what

Before approving the rate
hike, council members asked

ify whether design flaws had
contributed to the need for an
Filinovich said a rate increase
is needed regardless of past
problems. Wastewater funds
weren't used to pay for overruns
and repairs, she said.
She said the wastewater fund
has had a deficit for two years
and the general fund is running
low. The village "put the cart
before the horse," by building
the system before funding it.
"When I talk about the word
'planning,'" Filinovich said,
"any time you start capital proj-
ects, you. need to set aside
money in capital funds to pay for
Council members Chris
Sante, Don Achenberg, and
Cathi Hill said they saw no other
option but to approve the rate
"I don't know what else we
can do," Sante said. "We can't
keep raiding the general fund,
we're going broke ourselves."
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt and Mayor Dave
Boerner voted against the
"The bottom line is, finding
fault in this is difficult, but it's
easy to figure out whose fault
it's not. It's not their fault,"

Reckwerdt said of the residents
who'll pay. "We need to figure
out how we're going to shoulder
the burden. We can't dump it on
these residents."
The council approved the
increase and credit line over an
alternate option of increasing
rates by 62 percent.
Village-wide fee
The council voted unani-
mously to allow the Finance and
Utility Departments to research
a villagewide assessment to fund
a wastewater system implemen-
tation plan.
The assessment funds could
also be used for other waste-
water services that benefit the
entire village, such as hiring a
full-time engineer.
Council members said an
assessment makes more sense
than a proposed tax based on
property values, because all
properties receive equal benefit
from wastewater services.
Milander said an implemen-
tation plan could help
Islamorada obtain grant money
from other government entities.
Sante said an implementation
plan will protect business own-
ers from having to upgrade
onsite treatment plants, which
handle wastewater for hotels,
condominiums or shopping cen-
ters, to meet advanced waste-
water compliance standards by
Instead, business owners with
onsite plants could pay the
assessment and receive a letter
from the village stating that
they've agreed to hook into the
sewer system once it's complete.
Corps agreement
The Council unanimously
agreed to have village attorneys
draft an agreement with the
Army Corps of Engineers for
sewer systems in the neighbor-
hoods of Indian Waterways and
Indian Harbor, which will hook
into the existing treatment plant.
The council wants the agree-
ment to say that Islamorada will
not implement the plan until the
corps provides funding of at
least $500,000 this fiscal year.
The system's total cost is
estimated at $5.1 million, but
Milander and Filinovich said
they think Islamorada can
secure Corps of Engineers
grants to cover about $3.3 mil-
lion, or 65 percent of the

Keys Opinion

We are reminded that

war wounds all of us

In today's Keynoter, we carry sad news about the death of
U.S. Army Pvt 1st Class Joseph R. Berlin, 21.
He spent lots of time living in the Keys and enjoying the
water, becoming a certified diver at age 12.
His mom and aunt recall a second-grader who gave his lunch
money to a classmate who came from a home that couldn't
afford to buy their daughter lunch.
And a two-star general, speaking at Berlin's gravesite in
Arlington National Cemetery, spoke of his short stint in uni-
form and the big impression Berlin made, enough to attract
attention from the Military Academy at West Point.
But that future was cut short like so many others by the
tragedy that is Iraq.
Regardless of party, or who was right, who was wrong or any
of that, the loss of remarkable young men and women like
Berlin stands as a tragedy.
Equally so, we see the Wounded Warriors Ride coming
through the Keys today, the recovering soldiers will be head
from the Naval Air Station at Boca Chica to Old Town and
eventually Truman Annex.
Along the route, patriots will stand to applaud and sign out
cheers to encourage these returning vets who sacrificed so
much for their country.
This.newspaper seldom reports on news from abroad or com-
ments on national political races.
But the sobering news of this young man's death and the
reminders brought by the Wounded Warriors coming to the
Keys cannot be ignored.
Please show you care. When you see the parade of riders
waving flags pass by, a hand over your heart and a cheer will
do much to bring us all closer to home... someday.

Crackdown on tax exemptions

Did anyone ever think they would read about an arrest of a
property owner who is accused of faking a claim for a home-
stead exemption?
Well, in today's paper, you'll find a report about the first such
arrest made here in Monroe County.
A Kentucky man was arrested after it was learned he owned
more than one home in the Keys. This is not the last investiga-
tion or last arrest you will read about.
With the Save Our Homes amendment shielding owners
from double-digit increases in property taxes, we're sure there
are many who thought they could escape detection.
As county officials note, better cancel that exemption now if
you no longer qualify.
Or await that knock at your door with a law enforcement offi-
cer wearing a badge.

Voting for the flexible school funding's a no-brainer

The Monroe County School Board passed a
resolution giving unanimous support for a
"yes" vote on our upcoming school funding
The ballot item renews a successful 2004
initiative that shifted existing capital revenue
to our operating fund. This revenue-neutral
half-mill switch has since brought our teach-
ers' salaries to the highest levels in Florida.
Since each referendum may span only four
years by law, we are asking Voters to renew
this successful fiscal policy for another term.
In the past four years, we've had better success
at hiring and keeping the best teachers. We've
ensured there is a nurse in each of our schools.
At no additional cost to taxpayers, we have
improved public education for Keys kids. Our
district earned an "A" from Florida's assess-
ment system the past two years, in part
because of this referendum. These are our local
dollars and they stay in the Keys, a win-win
for all.

The election is Jan. 29 but early voting has
already begun. Voters may cast their ballots at
the elections offices in Key West, Marathon
and on Plantation Key. The Key Largo and
Big Pine Key libraries are also open for early
With only three items on the ballot, voting
is easy. Our local schools referendum appears
at the bottom of the front page. To avoid con-
fusion with the statewide referendum, simply
remember to vote "yes" on the local referen-
dum on the front page of the ballot.
To date, we've seen no opposition. We are
daily accruing a growing list of endorsements
from groups and individuals throughout the
district. You may view the current information
at www.supportkeysschools.com.
As one supporter put, your taxes won't go
up if you vote for it, and they won't go down
if you vote against it. It's a no-brainer.

The TDC's not broken at all

In a recent speech, Key West Mayor
McPherson adamantly expressed dissatisfac-
tion with results from the Monroe County
Tourist Development Council's efforts to pro-
mote tourism in our cherished paradise. From
many years of examining marketing cam-
paigns, I can understand his reluctance and
questioning exactly what kind of results it
brings, especially considering how much it
As one who travels extensively, I do see
many advertisements for the Florida Keys and
Key West and must admit that I find them
very alluring. Some say it's false advertising,
but there is something magical and truly
unique about the Keys that is difficult to
explain in a sound bite.
Marketing firms have many techniques of
measuring results and are constantly recom-
mending changes. I don't know much about
the present marketing plan or the agency, but
priorities should always be evaluated and
adjusted for changing circumstances.
The mayor admitted he isn't an expert on
this subject, so I don't understand his
adamant stance that it's broken. Is his posi-
tion based on proven facts or biased intu-
What I perceive is that whatever problems
the Keys may be having now are not the
result of poor marketing by the TDC or the
poor management of Key West (as former
Mayor Jimmy Weekley suggested) or the
county. I think it is nothing but remarkable
that the Keys economy is doing as well as it
is considering the formidable obstacles that
have been bestowed on us by the good lord,
the free market and political geniuses.
When you analyze the economic impact of

Hotel rooms were lost, cruise ships are

Keys Opinion

Saturday, January 19, 2008

Controlled burn would repeat mistake

I have some comments about the
recent article about the proposed bum
to the north end of Big Pine Key.
Jon Wallace from the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service, supposed pre-
scribed-fire specialist, is obviously not
a specialist on Florida Keys habitat.
He states in the article that Fish &
Wildlife is trying to restore the north
end of Big Pine Key to a savannah, or
treeless plain, a perfect habitat. If Mr.
Wallace had read the history of north
Big Pine Key, he would know that in
the late 1800s and early 1900s, the
north end was cut and burned for the
charcoal industry. Many acres were
slashed and burned for that purpose..
Huge buttonwoods existed out there
prior to that long-ago era. The north
end of Big Pine Key was a button-
wood forest.
Presently the habitat is trying to
grow back to what it once was, what
it is meant to be. Mr. Wallace is look-
ing at photos from the 1950s and
1960s. There is nothing natural or
perfect about the photos he refers to.
Man had already left his scars on this
unique habitat by the 1950s.
Lower Keys marsh rabbits have
occupied Big Pine Key longer than
Fish & Wildlife. Somehow they have

managed to survive despite man's
best efforts to wipe them out. From
early clear cutting, hunting and early
and continued development, the
marsh rabbit has maintained a
foothold on Big Pine Key. I fear this
fire will wipe out the delicate balance
that allows the Lower Keys marsh
rabbit and so many other plant and
animal species to coexist in this
recovering habitat.
I say "recovering" because Hurricane
Wilma sent an 8-foot storm surge over
the whole north end of Big Pine. The
rabbit habitat was nothing but a mud
flat after the. hurricane. Now it is
recovering and doing a very nice job
of it. The food plants have returned
and signs of rabbits are again seen on
every visit I've made to the area.
Mother Nature knows her job. Too
bad Fish & Wildlife can't leave well
enough alone. What it's getting ready
to do is criminal, a 30-acre experi-
ment. You would think the people
hired by the American people to pro-
tect our refuges and endangered
species would know better than to
repeat man's greatest mistakes.
Cut, slash and bum again. A
shame, a crying shame.

Fish & Wildlife shows disregard for Big Pine

In response to the article on the
30-acre prescribed bum on Big Pine
Key: The U.S Fish & Wildlife
Service's Jon Wallace is quoted as
saying the bum would restore that
section of refuge to what it once was,
a savanna, or treeless plain, and a
perfect habitat. He referred to photos
from the 1950s and 1960s showing
green grass savanna. He also referred
to the buttonwood trees as encroach-
ing on this habitat, so they need to be
stunted so the grass can regrow.
This kind of ignorant rationale is
the perfect example of why past
bums and other refuge projects have
been a disaster. Perhaps if Fish &
Wildlife actually did some research
prior to 50 years ago, before we had
a National Key Deer Refuge, they
would know that we don't have grass
savannas in the Keys. This "treeless
plain and perfect habitat" Mr.
Wallace refers to is far from perfect.
In fact, there is nothing natural about
it. We must stop treating this totally
unique Rockland habitat like that of
Georgia or anyplace else.
Buttonwood trees were slashed
and burned for the charcoal industry
almost a century ago all over these
islands. These wetland areas were
once Buttonwood forests, which is
the natural habitat.

The buttonwood and the marsh
rabbit have been trying to recover
since the early 1900s when the char-
coal industry died out. The trees are
still small after almost 100 years but
still offer a protective canopy from
aerial predation. Areas on offshore
islands that were not cleared by man
have buttonwood trees so large two
people cannot put their arms around
them. Buttonwoods do not encroach
on wetland habitat; they are part of
Fish & Wildlife cut buttonwood
trees in this area almost two years
ago. I've not observed one rabbit
pellet in these cleared areas. But I
have found numerous pellets and
footprints in the mud as well as nests
and tunnels in the grass under the
I don't know where Mr. Wallace
has been looking. There is healthy
grass everywhere you look, especial-
ly under the buttonwood trees, right
where it belongs. Pretty amazing
considering this habitat was devastat-
ed just two years ago in the storm
surge from Hurricane Wilma.
This project is yet another display
of arrogance and total disregard for
the very land Fish & Wildlife is sup-
poses to be protecting. Inexcusable.

Keys soldier lauds success in Iraq

I am a graduate of Marathon High

on my third deployment with the 3rd
Infantry Division out of Fort Stewart,
Ga. I am about to take command of the

I would like all Keys residents to
know that our soldiers are doing a fan-
tastic job in Iraq. With firsthand experi-
ence, I can say that the surge is work-
ing, evident by the decline of attacks
and violence across Iraq. The sacrifices

that our soldiers make on a daily basis
fighting the war on terrorism keeps ter-
rorists from conducting horrific attacks
in the United States, keeping all citi-
zens safe and free.
I especially want to thank my parents
James and JoAnn Faircloth for all the
support they have given me in serving

DVDs make troops' lives easier

I would like to publicly acknowledge
the gracious generosity of Kelly Koch
of the- Marathon Blockbuster store who
donated 30 DVD movies that have been
sent to our soldiers at the American
military base in Tikrit, Iraq. Kelly said
our troops are No. I with her and that
anything she can do for them, she is
more than happy to do.
DVD movies have been one of the
most requested items by the soldiers.
They hardly get to see any TV and they

can play the DVD movies on their per-
sonal computers during their off hours.
I have a nephew who is a National
Guard commanding officer at the base.
He said the DVDs would be catalogued
and made available to all of the soldiers
stationed at the base.
I know firsthand how appreciative
our troops are of our support and the
items sent to them. Heartfelt thanks to
Kelly Koch.

Moratorium on new hotel rooms extended

But airport
hotel bids
still sought

The Monroe County
Commission voted unanimously
Wednesday to extend a moratori-
um on new hotel and motel
rooms until next December,
despite the fact that last month
the commission agreed to put out
a request for proposals seeking
developers to build and operate
hotels at the airports in Marathon

and Key West.
Staff had suggested the exist-
ing moratorium in effect since
1994 be extended until the end
of 2009. Commissioner George
Neugent suggested it be extended
until December 2008 and, with
no discussion, the commission
approved the motion.
The moratorium also bans the
creation of new campgrounds or
RV parks. The freeze is meant to
last until the county comes up
with a permit allocation system
that controls growth in the Keys.
In December the commission
agreed to entertain the concept of

the hotels, an idea that grew out
of what they say is a need for a
new emergency operations center
in Marathon. Initially, the com-
missioners thought it might be
feasible to get a developer to cre-
ate a hotel at the Florida Keys
Marathon Airport in conjunction
with a new EOC. That way, they
reasoned, private interest would
help foot the bill, and the hotel
rooms would be available to
house vital staff in the event of a
In December, the idea was
expanded to include the Key
West International Airport, a
move that concerned County
Airports Director Peter Horton as

well as County Engineer Dave
Koppel. Despite the concerns,
however, the commission voted
4-1 to issue the requests and see
what comes in.
The requests for bid are still
being drafted, Koppel said.
Also on Wednesday, the com-
mission voted 3-2 to allow anoth-
er hotel-related moratorium to
expire. This one freezes the trans-
fer of RV building rights to a new
site to be used as hotel or motel
Commissioners Sylvia Murphy
and George Neugent voted against
allowing the freeze to end.
Monroe County Growth
Management Director Drew

Trivette told the commission the
freeze was unnecessary because,
since it was put in place in the
early 1990s, no one has sought to
transfer RV building rights into
hotel rooms.
"Existing regulations govern-
ing RVs as transient residential
units have been inadequate to
preclude the conversion of exist-
ing RVs into permanent resi-
dences," reads the moratorium.
"The transfer and conversion of
RV spaces currently used for
affordable housing into hotel or
motel rooms exacerbates the
existing affordable housing cri-
sis," it says, by creating need for
a larger lower income workforce.

Investigation begins

into speared deer

Injuries force
destruction of
protected deer

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
and Florida Keys National
Wildlife Refuge law enforcement
officer Steven Berger is investi-
gating circumstances behind a
Wednesday shooting of a Key
Deer with a spear gun.
The endangered animal sus-
tained severe injury and was
euthanized due to its injuries after
being recovered by National Key
Deer Refuge workers.
At 10:30 p.m. Wednesday,
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
Deputy David Brummer
responded to Kyle Boulevard off
Key Deer Boulevard to reports of
an entangled deer. Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said in a statement.
The report says Brummer
found the deer in the bush with a
three-foot long metal rod, later
identified as a spear used for fish-
ing, through its neck. Berger said
the spear entered the animal's
neck and came out through the
right shoulder.
"It was discovered by a citizen
up in Port Pine Heights late in the
evening. I got the call after our
deer researchers went out there
and discovered it was a spear
stuck in the animal," Berger said.

"The injuries were pretty severe;
it was still alive but it had to be
This incident comes in the
wake of two other disturbing
attacks on Key Deer near Port
Pine Heights, a subdivision off of
Key Deer Boulevard.
"We have another case under
investigation where three [Key
Deer] heads were found by some-
one who was walking around in
the woods. The heads were pretty
old, probably from last summer,
but this was within the last
month" they were found, Refuge
Manager Anne Morkill said.
"We've been talking to neighbors
and tracking that case down."
Berger said roughly a month
and a half ago a Key Deer was
run over and killed just a quarter
mile from Port Pine Heights.
"That was a malicious attempt
to kill the deer. There's obviously
some disturbed people out there;
why they choose to take it out on
innocent animals I [don't
know]," Berger said.
Berger said he was able to
obtain evidence regarding the
spear gun used in the latest attack
and the incident is currently
under investigation. He also said
the Refuge is trying to determine
whether a correlation exists
between the attacks.
Morkill urged anyone with
information on the attacks to con-
tact the Refuge. The number
there is 872-2239.

Big Pine soldier killed in Iraq

PFC Berlin
loved Keys water,

U.S. Army Private First Class
Joseph R. Berlin, 21, originally
of Tallahassee, died Dec. 30 in
the line of duty in Baghdad, Iraq.
Berlin, who served in
Company A, Special Troops
Battalion, 4th Infantry Division,
spent a great deal of time in the
Keys and lived here with his
mother, Debbie Beavers, on Big
Pine Key. He was laid to rest
with full military honors at
Arlington National Cemetery
Jan. 8.
Berlin was awarded the Army
Commendation Metal and Good
Conduct Metal for exemplary
behavior, efficiency, fidelity and
honor during his active military
Beavers said a two-star
General, speaking at Berlin's
service, said "if he were going
into battle, he would want Joey
beside him." The General also
said very few times has a Good
Conduct Metal been bestowed
upon a soldier with less than five

years of service.
Berlin was active for just 18
months and had been deployed to
Iraq Dec. 3. Beavers said the
future was bright for Berlin, who
was contacted by the United
States Military Academy at West
Point to attend the institution.
"He had great leadership and
technical intelligence; he could
have done anything he wanted,"
Beavers said. "We have a mili-
tary family; he wanted to go fight
for his country."
Beavers and Berlin's aunt,
Cheri Lineberger, also of Big
Pine Key, told a story about him
indicating his selflessness even
as a young boy.
As a second-grader, Berlin's
parents were contacted due to the
school's concerns with him never
eating lunch. Debbie and his
father, Joseph, thought a bully
was stealing their son's lunch
money and followed him to
school, only to see Berlin put the
money in a fellow classmate's
"When his dad asked him he
said it was a little girl who never
got to eat lunch, from a poor fam-
ily," Beavers said. "He had a big
heart and his roommate in Iraq
said he had an infectious smile."

Berlin loved to be out on the
water, his mother and aunt said.
He started snorkeling at age 3
and was certified to dive at age

and boy did he take me for a

Fate of Key West's Archer school on agenda

Verdict affects
renovations at
Horace O'Bryant

Parents and teachers anx-
ious about the fate of schools
in Key West have been prom-

tions and voice their concerns.
On Tuesday, Jan. 15, the
Monroe County School Board

Simonton project avoids affordable rule


Despite complaints that an
applicant isn't following city
guidelines that encourage afford-
able housing, the Key West
Planning Board on Thursday
approved construction of 20 mar-
ket rate units on a vacant old
town parking lot.
Board member Barry Barroso
Jr., who had the only dissenting
vote, said the project should fall
under new development a des-
ignation that requires property
and construction company owner
Richard Jones to construct 30
percent affordable units of the 20
The project is planned for 119
to 135 Simonton St., on a site that
once housed a lumberyard.
Board Chairman Richard

Klitenick and Assistant City
Attorney Larry Erskine said that
because the ROGO allocations -
distributed by hurricane evacua-
tion standards were transferred
there more than a year ago, the
project is considered redevelop-
ment, because it doesn't require
any new units on the property.
"If you ask 100 people on the
street- any laymen will say that's
new development," City Com-
munity Housing Committee
Chairman Omar Garcia said.
"They should be doing something
for affordable housing."
"We have to look at what our
legal standards are," said
Klitenick, an attorney. He told
fellow board members: "Do I
think this is redevelopment? No,
not really, but legally, it is."

While an existing ordinance
requires 30 percent of the units in
a new development project be
affordable, the housing commit-
tee is pushing one that would.
enact the same rule for redevelop-
ment projects.
The first reading of that ordi-
nance was passed by the Key West
City Commission, but was denied
its second reading, after committee
members voiced disapproval of the
Planning Department's changes to
the ordinance. They claim it's a
"watered-down" version.
"I think the city's history is
clear as not triggering the afford-
able housing requirement" in
treating redevelopment, said attor-
ney Ginny Stones, who is repre-
senting Jones. "There is no net
increase of ROGO allocations in
the city of Key West for this site."
Barroso was adamant in

requiring Jones to contribute a
percentage of affordable units or
funding to the city's affordable
housing trust fund.
"Affordable housing is not
something we can no longer talk
about," Barroso said. "We have to
do something about it."
But Klitenick is wary of reper-
If approved, he said, "that's
gong to go to court, or the city
commission, and it'll be over-
turned in nine seconds."
Planner for the project, Owen
Trepanier, said most of the
ROGO allocations came from
transient units, which equal a .58

of a ROGO allocation, whereas
single-family home allocations,
like the ones being proposed, are
a full allocation.
The applicant "actually had to
get 30 units that he had, to reach
... the equivalent of 20 single
family unit homes."
In order for the 30 percent rule
to apply to this project, the appli-
cant would have to ask the city
for ROGO allocations, which city
officials say aren't available.
The item still needs to go
before the city commission,
which Garcia said he hopes will
vote differently than the planning

Crackdown nets first

exemption arrest


A Kentucky man was arrested
Tuesday for falsifying his resi-
dential information in an effort to
save money on property taxes-
the first arrest of its kind in
Monroe County.
Edwin Koressel was booked
at the Stock Island Detention
Facility for homestead exemption
fraud after the Monroe County
Property Appraisers office fin-
ished an investigation revealing
he did not live in a Big Coppitt
Key home.
He claimed he did by filing for
the homestead exemption.
That exemption reduces the
property-tax assessment by
$25,000 for a home the owner
claims is his or her primary resi-
dence. Under the Save Our
Homes state constitutional
amendment, homesteaded prop-
erty also has its annual assess-
ment capped at no more than 3
"Any person who knowingly
and willfully gives false informa-
tion for the purpose of claiming
homestead exemption... is guilty
of a misdemeanor of the first
degree," state statute reads.
That investigation, led by
investigator Jim Young, uncov-
ered Koressel's primary residen-
cy was in Louisville, KY.
He was renting out the Big
Coppitt house at 45 Riviera Dr.
He owns two houses in the Keys
under his wife's name, Angela,
and two more Keys homes in his

'mother's name.
According to Young's inves-
tigative report, however, renters
said Koressel was their landlord
for those properties.
The house on 45 Riveria Dr.
has been rented out by four dif-
ferent sets of tenants since Oct.
27, 2004. He applied for the
exemption Sept. 20, 2006.
Current tenants are paying
$1,800 monthly.
If convicted of this charge,
Koressel faces up to one year in
prison and $5,000 in fines.
In March, Koressel, 40, ran
into trouble while in Kentucky.
He was sentenced to five
years of supervised release,
including two days per week in
jail and a fine of $10,000 for
mortgage fraud.
Koressel is one of many home-
owners who've been caught in
investigations of homestead claims.
Last year, 24 liens were placed
on Keys homes with owners ille-
gally claiming homestead
exemption, Young said.
Tips from neighbors of home-

Chambers give support to tax referendum

Teachers need
flexible plan,
groups contend

The Monroe County School
Board is stepping up efforts to
generate support for a Jan. 29
ballot initiative that would
allow Keys public schools
continued flexibility on how
they spend some tax dollars.
A 'yes' vote on the referen-
dum wouldn't alter the amount
of tax dollars raised, support-
ers say, but will let the school
district continue to use rev-
enue from a tax one-half cent
per thousand dollars of prop-
erty for operations. The tax
was originally earmarked for
capital projects. Continuing to
allow the money to be used for
operations is crucial to main-
tain competitive teacher
salaries, school board mem-
bers and administrators say.
Board members have
solicited support for the "flex-
ible funding" referendum from
local chambers of commerce,
a move that paid off when the
Marathon and Key West
Chambers included statements
endorsing a "yes" vote in their
January newsletters.
"I think that the chambers
are all very credible organiza-
tions throughout the Keys,"
School Board Chairman
Steven Pribramsky said.
"Endorsements from them to
me are very valuable because
they reach the business com-
munities that -deal directly
with property taxes."
The Key West and
Marathon chambers have both
endorsed the Jan. 20 flexible
funding tax referendum, along
with other business and civic
Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce President Jackie
Harder said she's been
approached by school board
members, but that the Key
Largo chamber won't make.a
decision about whether to
endorse the initiative until its
Jan. 23 board meeting.
"I know that all of the
chambers of commerce in the
Keys are becoming more
active in issues like this,"
Harder said. "I think it's a

wonderful thing that they're
getting involved in how local
taxing agencies are spending
tax dollars."
Harder said that in 2007,
the Key Largo Chamber
"made a concerted effort" to
ask all local taxing bodies to
keep their taxes at 2006 levels,
and that if the chamber does
offer an endorsement, "it
could very well come with a
caveat that we expect them to
hold tight to last year's taxing
A number of Keys citizens
are also ramping up efforts to
generate support for the refer-
endum, including the privately
funded group, Support Keys
Support Keys Schools
spokesman Brooks White said
the group is using donations to
conduct a telemarketing and
direct mailing campaign in the
final weeks before the vote.
"We're trying very hard to
do a political campaign here
without any public funding,"
White said. "My understand-
ing is that the school board, if
they wanted to, could commit
funds to running this cam-
paign. I'd rather not do that. I
think that's something that the
community should do for the
school district."

Ideal for older people or anyone unable to

Pay phones stay in Key West

One-year on
contract after
repairs made

The Key West City
Commission renewed their con-
tract with First American
Telecommunications Tuesday,
after they were told all pay
phones are now functioning
properly, but bringing in no net
revenue from usage.
City Manager Jim Scholl said
all pay phone locations have been
checked by the city's Information.
Technology Department and
they're functioning.
An Oct. 23 Key West city
probe into a random sampling of
the 98 pay phones on the island
revealed that 18 in the Smathers
Beach area and downtown were
not functioning. The company
swiftly repaired those phones,
and removed .some that were
unfixable, or received no usage.
"There were some not work-
ing on Duval, so they've actually

been taken out," IT director Patti
McLauchlin told the
Commission in Old City Hall.
First American's contract with
the city stipulates that the phones
operate properly. The contract
also calls for the conversion of 21
pay phones to kiosks with adver-
tisements. Thirteen of the kiosks
have already been constructed.
Commissioner Barry Gibson
questioned the content of the
advertisements, addressing an
old concern from residents that
there were too many ads for alco-
The company receives its net
revenue from advertisements
posted at the kiosks and pays the
city $6,500 a year for 13 convert-
ed phone kiosks. Once the other
eight kiosks are built, the annual
payment will rise to $10,500.
According to Finance
Director Roger Wittenberg, the
payments made for phone calls
don't even cover the company's
cost to maintain the phones.
Commissioners have repeat-
edly questioned the purpose of
keeping pay phones on the

island, when so many people use
cell phones.
The company argues that peo-
ple without cell phones can't be
ignored, and during hurricanes
pay phones work when cell
phones do not.
Gibson moved to renew the
contract for one year, the com-
mission concurred, with the
exception of Commissioner
Mark Rossi.
-Commissioners tabled a reso-
lution to renew its contract with
Monroe Association for Retarded
Citizens trash removal service at
the Garrison Bight.
Rossi claimed he's talked to
business owners at the Garrison
Bight who said the opposite of
Flenard, that the job was not sat-
isfactory, and complained of a
lack of supervision.
"Quite frankly, I'm not sure if
I can support this" renewal, Rossi
said. "There is still dirtiness over
there and there is still trash."
Port Director Raymond
Archer said he's heard good
things about the service over the
three-year contract.
"I would be interested in
knowing who doesn't think

[MARC] is performing," Archer
Executive Director Diana
Flenard approached the podium
and said both MARC staff and
clients clean up the trash, which
could be a reason for the confu-
"Every single person out there
is a MARC employer or MARC
client," she said.
Verge noted that MARC staff
is no longer responsible for land-
scaping the Marina, and that its
possible people at the Garrison
Bight might be expecting too
much- work outside the
requirements of the contract.
The item was tabled until the
Feb. 5 meeting because none of
the commissioners had a copy of
the contract to review.
-Major redevelopment plans
for the Colonial Inn at 415-417
Eaton St were tabled.
-Niles Sales and Service at
3600 N. Roosevelt Blvd got the
green light to redevelop parking
spaces, install a sidewalk and

ship to improve egress and

Two planners are temps


With the absence of a Key
West Planning Director, two
planning consultants have been
hired to temporarily fill the gap.
Tuesday, the Key West City
Commission voted unanimously
to hire former Planning Director
Ty Symroski to assist in oversee-
ing affordable housing projects.
Amy Kimball-Murley of Four
Gates Co.- a Miami planning and
consulting company was also
hired Jan. 11 to fill in as planning
director until City Manager Jim
Scholl finds a permanent replace-

Some comnunissioners are con-
cerned with the city paying for
the temporary positions in a tight
budget year.
"We -are slowly, with a shovel,
digging ourselves a whole," City
Commissioner Dan Kolhage said
Tuesday, after welcoming
Symroski aboard. "If we continue
to do this, we are going to find our-
selves in a very difficult situation."
Former Planning Director Gail
Kenson resigned Jan. 4, and has
accepted a job as a community
planner for Naval Facilities
Engineering Command Southeast.
Kimball-Murley's company,
which consists of an administra-
tive assistant and herself, "love
Key West," but aren't "looking
for a long-term commitment."
Kimball-Murley, who makes
it down to Key West about twice
a week, is receiving $105 an
hour, according to her contract.
That's about $50 less than the
typical rate she charges, she said.
When she is not in the city's
planning office, she works on
Key West projects from Miami,
she said.

Scholl "was looking for some-
one who could step in quickly,"
she said. "I did everything I could
to make myself available."
She's been a consultant for 20
years, and has worked on the US
Navy's federal Base Reuse and
Closure program that started in
1995, and assisted with Navy and
city negotiations after Sept. 11.
Scholl was the Navy Com-
manding Officer from 2003-06.-
Kimball-Murley and
Symroski's contracts will expire
after they've racked up about
$20,000 in costs, city contracts
and commissioners say.
Subhed: A familiar face
While a contract for Symroski
wasn't available before press
time, the commission said the
focus of his work is very specific:
affordable housing.
"Basically, I'm going to be
meeting with Captain Scholl and
he'll talk a lot of the affordable
housing projects and ideas that
need to move forward,"
Symroski said.
When asked how his job dif-
fers from City Housing
Coordinator Paul Clayton's,
Symroski said his planning skills
will assist in deciphering land use
maps and planning rhetoric,
while Clayton formulates ideas to
increase housing.
Symroski said he is charging
$100 an hour, adding that's $85
less than his usual rate.

Puto performance

review on tap Tuesday


The Marathon City Council is
scheduled to meet in regular ses-
sion at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Marathon Government Center.
Several items up for discus-
sion include an evaluation of

direction request regarding sys-
tem development charges for the

service establishments during
hours of operation.
A resolution to approve an
amended and restated develop-
ment agreement between the
city of Marathon and Marlin
Bay Yacht Club.
Two amendments to the
agreement are proposed includ-
ing one clarifying market rate
unit purchasers, as opposed to
affordable unit residents, being
required to purchase a member-
ship in Marlin Bay Yacht Club.

Two resolutions to
approve a development agree-
ment and conditional use permit
for Anchor Light LLC. The
property is located at 11699
Overseas Highway.
The proposal is to build six
two-bedroom units as converted
from seven existing units, as well
as two affordable units construct-
ed offsite or the equivalent cash
donation be made to the city.
A resolution accepting an
additional $100,000 in waste-
water funding grants money
from.the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
+ A resolution amending the
city's fiscal year 2007-08 budget.
According to the resolution,
the fire department has the
opportunity to provide EMT
training for seven volunteers

money to fund the project.
Also, a transfer of $120,820
will be made from the city's

Downs bids for sheriff

Lower Keys
firm owner
joins race

Sandy Downs says she wants
the community to put its money
where its mouth is.
"Let's really be one human
family," she said, referring to
Key West's city motto. "We're
not really one human family
until everyone admits they're
human and can work with the
mistakes that have been made
and build bridges."
Downs threw her hat into the
ring this week, filing with
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer. She's running as a non-
partisan candidate for sheriff.
If elected, she says, she
wants to see the establishment
of a community oversight com-
mittee for the Sheriff's Office,
and she wants to take a hard
look at the $41.5 million budget.
"The budget needs to be real-
ly looked at," she said. "I don't
know we have the top notch

accountants we need. I also
want a pay raise [for the
While she wants to see
deputies better paid, she says
she'd roll back her own salary
by $40,000 annually, if elected.
Incumbent Sheriff Rick Roth
currently earns $118,700 a year,
a salary set by the state, says
department spokeswoman
Deputy Becky Herrin.
Downs has a history of con-
flicts with the Sheriff's Office,
but she says her own troubles
are not the driving factor behind
her campaign.
"One of the absolute spurs
for my decision was when
Sheriff Roth cut the school
resource officers," she said.
"Their function is to keep our
children safe; there were so
many other areas they could
have cut the budget.
"There are a lot of deputies
interested in kids. I'd put that
energy into programs for our
She says she'd also like to
see the system overhauled so
that drug offenders get help

rather than just straight jail time.
"The drug problem down
here is huge," she said. "We're
arresting repeat offenders and
not putting them into rehab, or
one that really works. And it's
costing taxpayers huge amounts
of money. I want to see some
serious follow up so they're
never back in the system."
Downs and her husband own
and operate Tarzan's Tree
Service. They live 'and work out
of Cudjoe Key, where they've
lived since around 2001, she
estimates. She is the mother of
five sons and a daughter.
Downs says her background
working with kids is just what
the Sheriff's Office needs.
Roth announced last week
that he will not be running for a
fifth four-year term. After 18
years as sheriff and 43 with the
department, he's decided to
On Monday, Sheriff's Office
Capt. Bob Peryam announced
he is running for the office on
the Democratic ticket. Peryam's
been in the department for 27
years, and holds a master's
degree in criminal justice.

Department of Environmental
Protection in charge of local sewer
projects was summarily removed
from the agenda of this week's
County Commission meeting.
The commission met Wednes-
day in Key West.
Rep. Ron Saunders sent a note
to the commissioners Tuesday,
asking them to take a look at a
letter addressed to McCoy by
Florida Rep. Stan Mayfield.
"I respectfully request that the
County Commission take imme-
diate action to address the issues
raised in his letter," wrote
Mayfield's letter says there are
"two fundamental deficiencies"
in the Keys Wastewater Plan.
First, Mayfield objects to the
county's approach of "readiness
to proceed," which allows what-
ever project is most ready to go to

"If you have,
or even think
you have, a
problem, come
see us."


take priority when it's time to
break ground on a sewer project.
"[T]he plan must be revised,"
wrote Mayfield, "to provide the
requested priority of sequencing
For years, since a gathering of
mayors and local wastewater
experts hammered out an agree-
ment that divvied up future fund-
ing evenly throughout the Keys,
locals have agreed that, as money
comes available, it will automati-
cally go to the project that is the
most ready to proceed. Mayfield
asks the county to come up with a
list now, estimating the order in
which local projects will be ready
to go.
Mayfield, noting that in
August the County Commission
was named the lead in local sewer
projects, wrote, "the lack of a
plan that prioritizes the projects
on a countywide basis was a fun-
damental reason for requesting
the [County Commission] to
serve as the coordinating local
government entity..."
Secondly, says Mayfield, the
overall plan needs to list pro-
posed funding sources for all of

the projects in the Keys, estimat-
ed by local officials to total some-
where more than $500 million.
According to Mayfield's let-'
ter, over $600 million has already
been secured, but another $336
million is needed to completely
sewer the Keys.
Mayfield wrote that he sent a
letter to then Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro spelling out these
requirements. In addition, his
July letter asked for an update of
the status of existing projects and
whether proposed sewer projects
would be meeting the 2010 dead-
line mandated by the state.
Mayfield says, "it is impera-
tive that these deficiencies be cor-
rected" in order for the
Legislature to tackle funding
Keys sewers during the 2008 ses-
sion. Last year the Legislature did
not provide any local sewer fund-
ing, though it provided $20 mil-
lion the year before.
McCoy had proposed a resolu-
tion for Wednesday's meeting
that would have put DEP as the
lead on these projects rather than
the county.
Kerry Shelby, deputy director
of the FKAA, said last week that
the move was not a major shift in

philosophy and that it was merely
a means of "bringing DEP to the
table." He said it was a way to get
better buy-in from the state that
might lead to more state funding.
"The county requests that the
state commit the resources of the
DEP," said the resolution, "to

serve as the entity to manage the
funding, the design and the imple-
mentation to advance the provi-
sion of wastewater treatment
facilities for the Florida Keys."
The County Commission
removed the resolution from its
agenda with no discussion.

Sewer consultant: exercise caution on go-it-alone


A commitment by Marathon
to sewer the entire city would
hurt chances to obtain grant fund-
ing for its $82 million proposed
project, the city's federal lobbyist
Rick Marks said at a Wednesday
workshop to discuss federal fund-
ing request strategies for fiscal

year 2009.
"I would be concerned if we
sent the message that the city
would [sewer] on our own it
would not be well received. Part
of our problem is people have
portrayed [this as] a local issue
and we've done all we can to por-
tray it as a national issue for the

four million people that come to
the Keys every year," Marks said
in response to an inquiry by
Councilman Don Vasil.
Vasil discussed Councilman
Mike Cinque's plan to commit to
sewering regardless of funding
and asked whether the city should
consider such a move. Council
voted against Cinque's plan by a
3-2 vote at a Jan. 9 wastewater

Carlyle Group deals for Bight leases


Key West's Half Shell Raw
Bar and Turtle Kraals are nearly
sold. Again. And the A & B
Lobster House building with its
valuable waterfront access -
might be sold along with the
Spottswood Companies, with
the Carlyle Group, will own the
leases to the restaurants if the
City Commission approves the
transfer. The lease assignments
passed the Key West Bight
Management District Board
Wednesday without discussion
from the board or the public.
Businesses can only own leas-
es in the historic seaport area, as
the city owns the land and build-
ings. Under the current lease, the
two Bight buildings must house
restaurants, and have other
restrictions on use. The near-by A
& B building is outside of the
Bight and thus not under such.
restrictions. Under current city
code, the property could remain a
restaurant or lawfully become
apartments, offices, parking,
homes or a church.
The real estate division of the
Carlyle Group has sworn to pro-
vide the financial backing,
according to documents filed
with the city. The direct owners,
Carlyle subsidiaries called CS
Key West IV and CS Key West V,
claim to have more than $34 mil-
lion in combined assets. With
Carlyle providing the money, it is
unclear what role Spottswood
will play.
Also undisclosed is the
amount of the sale, although
property .appraiser records esti-
mate the taxable value of the lob-
ster house at $17.4 million. It was
purchased in 1997 for $5.1 mil-
lion. The sale of business opera-
tions of A & B Lobster House,
Alonzo's Oyster Bar, White

Tarpon and Berlin's Cocktails &
Cigars would likely infuse addi-
tional value into the deal, as
would the two Bight eateries.
Carlyle one of the world's
largest private equity firms orig-
inally poised itself to purchase
the property with remnants of
Cay Clubs management, but the
deal fell through at the last
moment. Current leaseholder
Gene Smith had. negotiated with
Cay Clubs' principle owner Dave
Clark for three months before the
deal fell through.
The A & B Lobster House
building was being sold with the
leases at that time. The building
and leases would not be sold sep-
arately to Cay Clubs or anyone,
Smith said at the time.
It is unknown if that is still
true, as Smith did not return
phone calls by press time.
Smith's attorney and attorneys
for Carlyle Realty also did not
return calls. Robert Spottswood
was not available for comment.
If the sale of the leases and,
possibly, the A & B building,
becomes a contentious issue at
the Feb. 5 City Commission
meeting, members of the newly
appointed Bight board will not be
The board is currently experi-
encing a "frustrating lack of pub-
lic input," said Karen Cabanas, a
board member and area attorney.
Particularly irksome were the
throngs that came before the city
commission to discuss the lease
extension for the Waterfront
Market in December, she said.
No members of the public came
to the prior Bight Board meeting
for discussion of the lease
The problem partially
stemmed from city commission-
ers failing to delegate, said board
member Dan Probert after

Wednesday's meeting. All dis-
cussion of Bight issues on the
Waterfront Market leases and
others should be sent back to the
board, he said.
Most of the board members'
terms expired over the course of
the fall, and another resigned.
Five members were recently
appointed, including former City
Commissioner Harry Bethel.
Two board positions remain
The board also discussed the
future of the Lazy Way shops, a
small strip of land that has
. dogged the board for years. The
former master leaseholder was
evicted late last fall, and the
board is currently considering
applications for new tenets to fill
the different shops. At their
December meeting, the board
assured current .tenets they are
being given fair consideration.

Mayor Pete Worthington
agreed with Marks that sewering
the Keys is a national issue.
"The federal and state govern-
ment own more than 85 percent
of this county and its 80,000 resi-
dents being asked to fund this
project," he said.
Securing wastewater funding
has been Marks' top priority and
he sought direction from council.
"We have spent a large
amount of time on the wastewater
issue and we're working hard on
that. I would recommend it con-
tinue but I need some sense we're
going to stay the course with that
as the top priority," he said.
Council directed Marks to
seek $20 million in state and trib-
al assistance grant funding
through the South Florida Water
Management District, as well as
$10 million in U.S. Army Corp of
Engineers funding through the

Florida Keys Water Quality
Improvement Act of 1999.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull and
Marks both pointed out the $20
million through SFWMD is a
long shot at best.
"That has really been a flier
for us, but I continue to submit it
in case we do catch a break,"
Marks said.
Marks will also seek to have
$28 million in USACE funding
including in the President's buidg-
et for fiscal year 2010.
Other priorities for the 2009
fiscal year include seeking an
additional $1.5 million in federal
funding for Little Venice Phase II
of the city's stormwater collec-
tion system, working with staff to
develop a long range plan for
Boot Key Bridge and seeking
funding for telecommunications
and other equipment for the city's
emergency operations center at
the new fire station.

Where to find free tax help

IRS, others
offer programs
to ease the pain
Keynoter Contributor

\Let's talk taxes because it's
that time of year again.
No matter what your income,
there's plenty of help available
online and in the community to
help you sort out all those new

tax laws and answer all your
questions. To make it less painful,
here's some information that
should help you along.
One of the best resources in
the community for help is the
AARP Tax-Aide program. Every
year Tax-Aide volunteers provide
tax help to low- and middle-
income taxpayers, with special
attention provided to those who
are 60 and older, starting Feb. 1
and going until the second week

in April. The volunteers have
extensive training and will help
anyone. They are friendly and
helpful experts. And you do not
have to be retired and you do not
have to be an AARP member to
get the help.
The AARP Tax-Aide locations
are: Key Largo library Fridays 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.; Marathon Senior
Center Wednesdays 1 to 4:30
p.m.; Marathon library Mondays

Some companies offer free
software for basic federal income
tax preparation and e-filing in
addition to more sophisticated
products that cost money. A free
one is IRS Free File, but only if
your adjusted gross income was
$54,000 or less in 2007. It's easy.
You answer the online questions
and the tax software takes care of
the rest.
When choosing a company, be
sure to link to the company's

charged a fee..
An estimated 97 million tax-
payers, or seven out of 10, are eli-

IRS Free File, you can get a faster
refund in as little as 10 days

A big one is electronic filing.
E-filing is faster, can help you get

most taxpayers.
"E-filing is secure," said
David Williams, director of elec-
tronic tax administration' and
refundable credits for the IRS.
Taxpayers "can get a refund
faster, in as little as 10 days if
they file electronically and
choose direct deposit. E-file is
also less error-prone."
Another benefit of both Free

software is that it automatically
checks for accuracy. You receive

Bahamas come to Middle Keys

Crane Point celebrates with food, parades, history, art


The islands the Bahamian
islands are coming to Crane
Point Hammock in Marathon
next weekend.
The third annual Bahamian
Heritage Festival kicks off
Friday night with a fish-fry din-
ner and will continue throughout
the weekend with a Junkanoo
parade, historical demonstra-
tions, live music, cooking
demonstrations and art and
crafts vendors, among other
"The Bahamian Heritage
Festival is a great way for the
local community to experience
the fun, food, music and art of
the great Bahamian culture we
have right here in the Florida
Keys," Crane Point Outreach
Director Laura Fowler said.
"I believe the festival is one
of the best events we have here
in Marathon. All ages will find it
a great way to participate and
learn about the unique culture of
the Bahamas," Crane Point
Education Director Elizabeth
Moore said of the .three-day
Friday's dinner will begin at
5:30 p.m. .and feature keynote
speaker George Born, executive
director of the Historic Florida
Keys Foundation. There will be
live music beginning at 6:45
p.m. and complimentary beer
and wine will be served with
dinner. Tickets are $30 each.
Jan. 26 is Family Day and will
feature two Junkanoo parades.
Junkanoo is a celebratory parade
that started in the Bahamas in the
17th Century to preserve African
cultural traditions. Stanley
Switlik Elementary School's
Children Chorus will be perform-
"You won't want to miss the
Junkanoo parade with stilt walk-
ers in colorful costumes march-
ing down U.S. 1," Fowler said.
Jan. 27 will feature the Taste
of the Bahamas. Guests can sam-
ple Bahamian-style food and
watch live cooking demonstra-
tions. The Key West Caribbean
All-Star Band will be playing
live music and Bahamian-style
arts, crafts and food vendors will
be at the festival all day.

It's all about the Bahamas next weekend at Crane Point Hammock. If you've never experienced
a Junkanoo parade, you're really missing something. The food and performances also are
going to spice things up.

Crane Point's Adderley
House, located at the center of
the property, was built by
Bahamian pioneers George arid
Olivia Adderley more than 100
years ago.
"The Adderley House we
have here on site is the oldest

house outside of Key West. The
Bahamian Festival is an awe-
some way to keep the culture
alive, with the help of local re-
enactors, great food and activi-
ties for all ages," Crane Point

on our history
K ey West sculptor J.
Seward Johnson, known
for his lifelike and life-
size or bigger than life -
sculptures, opens his newest
exhibit, "ICONS," at the Key
West Art and Historical
Society's Custom House
Museum with a reception from
8 to 10 p.m. today.
Johnson's "Beyond the
Frame" recently ended its long
stay at the Custom House, 281
Front St., and proved to be one
of the museum's most popular
exhibits, according to museum
Like "Beyond the Frame,"
Johnson's "ICONS" allows visi-
tors to the museum to interact
with his size sculptures. The
new works capture some of
America's iconic moments in
history, art and the movies in
his usual detail.
There's one exception to the
life-size sculptures. Outside the
Custom House, Johnson's 25-

foot-tall "God Bless America,"
his tribute to artist Grant
Wood's "American Gothic,"
will grace the museum's
entrance. The stoic couple stares
down on Clinton Square and
vicinity, inviting people to
experience a unique journey
into America through Johnson's
interactive art.
In the Custom House's new
sculpture garden in the back of
the historic building, Johnson's

Matisse's "The Dance," will be

she stands on a steam vent; and
"Confrontational Vulnerability,"
Johnson's tribute to Manet's
nude "Olympia."
"We know from the many
visitors to our 'Beyond the
Frame' exhibit that visitors
enjoy the opportunity to interact
with the sculptures," said Art
and Historical Society Chief

Executive Officer Claudia
Pennington said. "The new
'ICONS' exhibit continues that
opportunity and we fully expect
it to be as popular with locals
and visitors."
"I want to honor the fact that

these images have stayed with
us and traveled through time.
But I think it is a valuable cre-
ative project to investigate how
we see these icons now, from
the distance of history passing,"
Johnson said.

over the world.
It opens Wednesday and runs
through Feb. 9, with curtain at 8
p.m. Tickets are $30. The
Waterfront is at Mallory Square.
The story is about Mitch, an
accomplished sports journalist,
and Morrie, his former college
professor. Sixteen years after
Mitch graduates, he sees Morrie
on Ted Koppel's "Nightline,"
where Morrie is discussing his
battle with Lou Gehrig's disease.
Morrie is the same witty
and amazingly upbeat but
over the years, Mitch has
become a career-obsessed man
who feels a definite lack in his:
life. After the "Nightline" inter-
view, the two reconnect and
what starts out as a simple visit
turns into a weekly pilgrimage:
- a final class in the meaning
of life.
"Tuesdays With Morrie" was
on The New York Times best-
seller list for more than five
years. Oprah Winfrey produced
it as a television movie starring
Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria;
it won four Emmy Awards in
1999. And "Tuesdays With
Morrie" has been published in
34 countries and in 30 lan-
guages, with more than 11 mil-
lion copies in print.

Property Tax Exemptions; Limitations On Property Tax Assessments
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. With respect to homestead property, this
revision: (1) increases the homestead exemption except for school district taxes and (2) allows homestead property owners to
transfer up to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this
revision (3) provides a $25,000 exemption for tangible personal property and (4) limits assessment increases for specified
nonhomestead real property except for school district taxes.
In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does
not apply to school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead property owners will be able to transfer
their Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relinquishing their previous
homestead; except, if this revision is approved by the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is established on
January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been relinquished in 2007. If the new homestead has a higher just value
than the previous one, the accumulated benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a lower just value, the amount of
benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal property. This provision
applies to all taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property to 10 percent each year. Property will be
assessed at just value following an improvement, as defined by general law, and may be assessed at just value following a
change of ownership or control if provided by general law. This limitation does not apply to school district taxes. This limitation is
repealed effective January 1, 2019, unless renewed by a vote of the electors in the general election held in 2018.
Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption when it was less than $25,000 and did not apply uniformly to
property taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutional amendment provides for assessment of
homesteads "at less than just value" rather than as currently provided "at a specified percentage" of just value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1, 2008, if approved
in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or to take effect January 1, 2009, if approved in the general election held in
November of 2008. The limitation on annual assessment increases for specified real property shall first apply to the 2009 tax roll
if this revision is approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this revision is
approved in the general election held in November of 2008.

Marathon, which won the sea-
son's first meeting of the local
rivals, 69-62, on the strength of
3-point shots Dec. 18, managed
only five treys this time.
Marathon coach Kevin
Freeman was even more disap-

Both teams ran fast breaks at

Marathon opened with a quick

That meant trying to get the ball

Key West girls

Keynoter Contributor

Held at bay for 60 minutes by
an opponent it had easily defeat-
ed twice in the regular season,
Key West High School's girls
soccer team rallied for a 3-0 vic-
tory over Mater Academy in the
semifinals of the District 16-4A
tournament Wednesday night at
Ted Hendricks Stadium in
The victory sent the Conchs
into the championship game,
which was played against
Ronald Reagan late Friday.
Results were not available at
press time.
Mater, which had lost 7-1
and 6-1 to the Conchs, kept the
game scoreless well into the sec-
ond half. "They clogged the
middle of the field and double-

teamed Kara Haack and Krizzie
Menez every time they had the
ball," coach Scott Paul said,
referring to his top scorers.
In addition, the Conchs
couldn't break through against
the Lions' goalkeeper, who
made several saves. "We just
couldn't find a hole to shoot
through," Paul said.
At the 60-minute water
break, with an end-of-the-sea-
son loss a possibility, Paul lec-
tured his players, and they
responded with three goals.
The first came when fresh-
man Jennifer Barcenas crossed
the ball to an on-rushing Haack,
who found the back of the net.
Two minutes later, Menez scored
off a rebounded shot. Finally,
Barcenas scored after taking a
through ball from Haack.
"That was way too close for,
comfort," said Paul, whose team
improved to 13-5-2. "That was
the typical ride for us this sea-
son, though."

managed only one field goal in
the final period. They did hit
6-of-10 free throws, including
Stephanie Noe's 2-for-2 trip to

Center Ana Ismer scored

six points and kept the Canes

ICS suffers consecutive

-one-point losses

sighs coach after
Senior Staff Writer

Two one-point losses in two
days staggered Island Christian's
boys basketball team this week.
"Two nights in a row, we're in
the exact same situation at the
end of the game," said ICS coach
Dean Allman. "Unbelievable."
Two free throws by Nathan
Overfield game the Eagles a 42-
41 lead over Barrington
Academy of Florida City with 32
seconds left in Tuesday's game at
Coral Shores.
But Barrington's. Falcons (3-
5) hit a layup with six seconds
left to set the final score, 43-42.
Island Christian held a 31-28
lead going into the fourth quarter
but Barrington picked off several
ICS passes and won the period,

15-11; and the game.
Twice in the final minute,
ICS' Noah Sutter gave ICS come-
back chances when he forced
Barrington turnovers, getting a
jump ball off a Falcon rebound
and grabbing a steal on an in-
bounds pass.
"We're getting there. We had a
good shot at the end but it didn't
go in," Allman said. "The last
time we played [Barrington],
they beat us by 30."
Overfield went 8-for-8 from
the line in the second half, ending
with a team-high 17 points.
Point guard Aaron Izaguirre
scored 11 points, including four
straight in the second quarter that
sparked the Eagles to a 19-14
Island Christian (3-3) went
into halftime with a .25-19 lead
over the Falcons.
Phillip Izaguirre hit both the
Eagles' 3-pointers to close with
eight points. Sutter. scored four,
and Tim Globus scored two.

That followed a 32-31 loss
Monday to the junior varsity
Colts from basketball power-
house Calusa Prep.
"We were down by three with
nine seconds left, and down by
one with one second left,"
Allman said. "We got the ball to
Nathan for a layup at the buzzer
but it rolled off the rim. That's a

Overfield ended with 16
points, accounting for more than
half the Eagles' offense.
Sutter scored eight points in a
flurry of four field goals in the
fourth quarter. Aaron Izaguirre
had five points.
Island Christian outscored the
JV Colts, 12-0, in the third quar-
ter. "We played good really good
defense," Allman said. "Then
[Calusa] came out in the fourth
and hit a couple three-pointers."
