"Nov. \ve ha\e some good

Nine miles of U.S. 1 fully
half the length of the 18-Mile
Stretch widening project are
now under construction.
And with that benchmark
reached, work this week will
close the northbound lane of
U.S. 1 at night from near mile

beginning Thursday.
Traffic will be limited to one
lane from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
weeknights (Monday through
Thursday) until March 9.
One of the 160-foot-tall work
cranes now on the site will move
into the northbound lane of the
highway to lift large concrete

specifics of a rule. People with a
stake in commercial or recre-
ational fishing or environmental
protection can see how we can
work together."
"In some species, regulation
can only go so far," he said.
"About the only way to reduce
the bag limit for redfish or snook
is to go to zero."
Previous sessions have drawn
from a dozen to nearly 40 peo-
ple.
"One thing we're hearing
over and over from all sides is
that it's the habitat, stupid,"
Schlesinger said. ""We have to
be a better advocate to protect
critical habitat."


Keys charter captain Bill
Kelly said local residents should
take the opportunity to speak up.
"If you're not part of the
process, you shouldn't com-
plain," Kelly said. "The
[Conservation Commission] and
federal fishery boards give a lot
of weight to testimony from
anglers and people who use the
water."
"Sometimes what they hear
from staff as 'the best available
science' doesn't add up," Kelly
said. "They need to hear from
people who know."
The most effective way to
make a point is to speak in per-
son, and submit a copy of
remarks and evidence in writing,
Kelly said.
"There are a lot of issues that


we still have time to address,
everything from water quality to
the loss of waterfront access,"
Kelly said. "We need to speak
up."
The state has not used this
process many times, Schlesinger
said, but similar efforts have gen-
erated results including cre-
ation of the first statewide
marine regulatory agency, the
Marine Fisheries Commission.
People also can comment by
leaving remarks at the agency's
Web site at www.myfwc.com.
A vision statement for the
future of fishing and five focus
areas are outlined. The docu-
ments are available online at

Stretch project halfway completed

see the decking go up, and it will
really start to look like a bridge."
At the soaring bridge work
north of Jewfish Creek, crews
planned to pour the first layer of
concrete for the road surface, 8.5
inches thick, onto a section of the
bridge deck.
The concrete will cover metal
support forms to be left in place,
and an elaborate network of rein-
forced metal bars that provide
substructure.
The first pour was scheduled
Tuesday night.
South of the bridge, motorists
can see the pilings and beams that
will support about 1.4 miles of
new bridge. A U-shaped indenta-


tion on the west side of the beams
will hold the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority water
pipeline.
When the new Jewfish Creek
Bridge is complete, crews will
remove fill dirt placed through
Lake Surprise to carry Henry
Flagler's railroad.
The removal is intended to
help restore natural water flows
through the area. Other large cul-
verts are being installed as part of
the work.
From Jewfish Creek north to
the county line, crews have
removed mangroves for the
wider highway footprint and are
in the "subbase preparation"
phase, Jones said.
State officials continue to seek
a site to place the muck and veg-
I


etative material dredged along
the way.
A plan to deposit much of the
material at a North Key Largo
restoration site and a Miami-
Dade County tree farm was
scrapped because of concern over
possible contaminants.
During the night road clo-
sures, northbound and south-.
bound traffic will alternate onto
the southbound lane. Motorists
might experience delays of up to
10 minutes during the closures,
Jones said.
Card Sound Road is open, but
the standard toll is in effect.
The new Jewfish Creek Bridge
- the total Stretch project is esti-
mated to cost more than $270
million could be open by mid-
2008, according to a timeline.


County deficit may shrink


FUNDING / From 1

September, there could be a $1.1
million deficit in that fund by the
end of the fiscal year.
Kolhage warned County
Administrator Tom Willi that not
only was a potential deficit on the
way, but that $18.3 million
appropriated for the 2007 general
fund exceeded the County
Commission's own policy, which
stipulates that only 77.5 percent
of the general fund can be ear-
marked for expenditures.
By mid-January, county offi-
cials reacted to Kolhage's warn-
ing, mapping out a series of cost
savings and redistributing sales
tax revenue designed to make the
stay in balance.
Today's public hearing,
required by law to make amend-


ments to the 2007 budget, out-
lines those measures, which
include the reduction of the esti-
mated "fund balance" rolled over
from the previous year as well as
adjusting some revenues.
"My revenue estimates were
only off by less than one half of 1
percent," Zappulla said. "But the
expenditure estimates were off by
$3 million and that's because it
was clear that Mr. Willi wanted to
bring the fund balance down. He
didn't want to raise taxes dramat-
ically."
After Hurricane Wilma, feder-
al disaster assistance was set at 75
percent, with the state and local
governments sharing the remain-
ing 25 percent of the overall
costs. In January, Bush raised that
to 90 percent, leaving the state
responsible for 5 percent of the
costs and Monroe County respon-


sible for the other 5 percent.
To date, county officials have
assumed that the cost of Wilma to
the county would end up more
than $4 million. Bush's order cut
that down $2 million.
Despite the windfall, Zappulla
says the cost-saving measures set
in January will continue, includ-
ing the freezing of most expendi-
tures that come out of the general
fund.
Eventually the general fund
balance will need to be brought
back up from 2007's adjusted
$12.7 million to what it's been in
prior years, Zappulla said. In
2005 it was $25.7 million; in
2005 it was $20 million.
"We have to get the reserve
back up where it was," he said.
Still, Zappulla says he expects
to keep county taxes under con-
trol for 2008.

Rice out to collect

1% A r+Ih i r+i


IV %I l |111 %- I I l I -, ,, I
pledges need
to become cash
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

A major commercial airline is
finally serving Florida Keys
Marathon Airport dnce again -
and now it's time to pay the bill
in the form of pledged communi-
ty donations that helped make
the deal possible.
Former County Com-
missioner David Rice, who
heads the nonprofit group
Florida Keys Airport Initiative
Inc., said this week he'll be visit-
ing the 10 to 15 residents, busi-
nesses and groups that pledged to
donate money but haven't yet
paid.
"I wanted to wait until we had
the proof on the table, and now
we do," said Rice, who expects
donors to have the money ready.
"I certainly don't plan to make it
my life's work. Hopefully, we'll
have it all after the next couple of
weeks."
The roughly $300,000 is
donations and pledged contribu-
tions added to a $750,000 feder-
al grant that guarantees an air-
line, in this case Delta, will meet
a target revenue for the first year
of service between Marathon and
Atlanta that began Feb. 15.
Rice said most of the money
is sitting in an account at Marine
Bank, although he still needs to
collect nearly $100,000 in
pledges, some from contributors
such as Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas, which committed
$50,000 in a letter to Rice.
"There may be some snags,
for instance, there are some busi-
nesses that made pledges that
changed hands," Rice said. "For
example, at this point I'll be


dealing with different owners at
Holiday Isle" Resort in
Islamorada.
Another issue could arise fol-
lowing the death of former Key
Colony Bay Hotel owner Tracy
Holder, who died in September.
Holder pledged $10,000 in a let-
ter to Rice.
"I am more than happy to be
able to go and do this because it
means we were successful," Rice
said. "And I'm thinking that
we'll very likely be seeing some
more business with other carriers
within the next few months."
Monroe County Airports
Director Peter Horton said Delta
required a revenue guarantee of
only $500,000 in its contract to
provide daily flights to and from
Atlanta leaving another
$550,000 to use as a guarantee
for another airline.
"We've been talking with
three other airlines. Two have
expressed interest and a third one
we are courting," Horton said.
"They are all major carriers that
could provide both direct flights
to other [hub airports] and
regional flights in Florida."
Horton said Continental
Airlines, through Gulfstream
International, could begin daily
flights to Fort Lauderdale and
Tampa by the fall without any
revenue guarantee. Delta has
also expressed interest in replac-
ing its current 40-passenger jet
with a 70-passenger jet to
Marathon.
"This could be becoming a
success quicker than we antici-
pated," Horton said. "I was meet-
ing with the new federal security
director Thursday morning, and
one of the topics was upgrading
the security classification of
Marathon to accommodate air-
planes over 60 passengers, and
that is a key component."

Election starts getting serious


It's first race
with at-large
voting system
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

With the March 13 Marathon
City Council election only weeks
away, candidates say they are get-
ting serious about establishing
platforms and pushirig campaigns
into full swing.
One notable candidate, two-
time Marathon mayor John
Bartus, has even taken the step of
hiring longtime Keys political
consultant Brooks White a
move that Bartus said shows how
serious candidates should take
the first at-large election.
"Right now, there are six peo-
ple running for two open seats, so
it's basically a free-for-all," said
Bartus, referring to the new sys-
tem that replaces the former one
in which candidates run against
each other for specific district
seats. Terms are for two years.
Bartus said he managed his
own campaigns during his previ-
ous three council election wins
but has asked White to help with
voter lists and targeting voter
mail-outs. Bartus has not listed
any payments to White in recent

campaign treasurer reports pro-
vided to the Monroe County
Supervisor of Elections Office.
White has advised- several
other Keys candidates, the latest
being Steve Pribramsky in his
successful bid for the Monroe
County School board in 2006. He
also entered the 2004 race for
schools superintendent as a write-
in candidate, though not a serious
one.
"Basically, his advice and
counsel is worth its weight in
gold," Bartus said. "There's no
way you can take this lightly.
Again, I've got five opponents
now."
Incumbent Councilman Jeff
Pinkus said he also is taking this
election seriously, although he is
wary of a system that could
potentially declare a winner with
less than a majority of 50 percent
plus one vote, which was
required in the previous system.
"I have learned a tremendous
amount," Pinkus said, "and I'm
taking this one more seriously
than the others."
"When you have six candi-
dates running for two seats,
somebody can be elected with a
minimum of 34 percent of the
vote," Pinkus added. "I don't
think someone should be up there
without winning a majority."
Incumbent Vice Mayor Marjie
Meams said she isn't approach-
ing this race any differently than
her first race in 2005, although
she said she now has to address
rumblings of unincorporation.
"I have talked to people indi-
vidually, but I haven't talked to
any groups yet," Mears said.
"I'm pretty much doing it on my
own, and sometimes I'll talk with
[son Randy Mearns, a former city
mayor,] for advice."
"When I heard the vibes of


unincorporation," Meams added,
"my thought was, Look at the
county. You are not serious about
jumping out of the city into that?"
However, candidate Joan
"Bicycle Joanie" Nelson said
incorporation sentiments should
be taken seriously. And, she said,
the at-large system could finally
be her ticket to the council.
"This whole movement, I
think they have 800 petitions to
dissolve the city," Nelson said.
"I'm not opposed to dissolving
the city, but if the city shapes up,
maybe we should keep it."
"I think I have a better chance
of winning this time," said
Nelson, who has ran and lost in
every council election since
2000. "I think the. other candi-
dates are worried about me."
Candidate Don Vasil said he's
for the new election system but
hoped it would lure more candi-
dates unhappy with the city's cur-
rent direction.
"I feel most people feel the
incumbents have not been listen-
ing over last four or five years,"
Vasil said, "and the motion
towards change is even stronger."
For my campaign strategy,"
Vasil continued, "I'm just trying
to give out the message that peo-
ple have been trying to send to
the council."
Candidate Mike Cinque said
he's also heard "anti-incumbent"
feelings from residents, although
all the candidates have run for
council before and are fairly well
known.
"We've got a couple of non-
incumbents and a couple of
incumbents," Cinque said. "But
everybody is known for who they
are and what they've done."
"I'm not approaching it any
different," Cinque added. "Last
time I ran, I ran on the issues. I
think the people are looking for
the same this time."

not just for smoking

Apparently 112 grams 4
ounces of marijuana isn't real-
ly for personal use but rather for
sale, a Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputy discovered
Monday.
Andrew Flis, 20, of Marathon
was charged with possession
with intent to sell after he report-
edly admitted ownership of the
pot.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
Deputy Robert Dosh was
patrolling near mile marker 101
at 1;45.; a.m. ,when he .spotted a,


Chevrolet SUV traveling 64 mph
in a 45 mph zone. He pulled the
car over and asked the driver, a
17-year-old from Marathon, if he
had anything in the car he should
be aware of.
At that point, Herrin said, Flis
said he had marijuana for person-
al use and handed over a black
plastic bag. In the bag were
smaller bags containing the mar-
ijuana, and Deputy Lyle Agins,
who arrived as backup Deputy
Dosh, reportedly told Flis he
thought "it was a lot of marijuana
just to be for personal use."
Flis then admitted he was
going to sell it to support his
.mother arid brdtlier,.Herrinksaid.

Keys Opinion


Housing survey reveals

need for rentals

There were a few surprises in a survey of housing needs iden-
tified by employees of the Monroe County School District.
Turns out "home ownership" may not the Holy Grail after all.
In Saturday's Keynoter, we ran results from the survey, which
went to 1,300 district employees, who represent the largest
group of employees outside the U.S. Navy here in the Keys.
Out of that total, 617 responded, which is a higher percentage
than most such surveys garner.
The big surprise: More expressed a preference to rent rather
than own.
This is an important point often lost in the much-debated
"workforce" housing issue.
Many of the efforts mounted by the county and various cities
have focused on ways to help underwrite the first-home buyer.
And there are certainly lots of studies showing a correlation
between high levels of home ownership and community con-
.nectedness because folks who own have a greater stake in their
town, so goes the reasoning.
But we think the School District survey uncovered another
element at work.
Convenience and time spent commuting are becoming ever
larger factors in decisions people make about where they work,
what kinds of careers they pursue and how much satisfaction
they get from what they do.
In the survey, 56 percent of those responding reported living
fewer than 5 miles from where they work. Here in the Keys,
that's an astonishing percentage with that kind of proximity,
especially knowing the commuter patterns that have evolved
where it's not unusual for workers to commute 40 to 50 miles
up and down the Keys.
Key West results skew those percentages, of course, since a
preponderance of neighborhood schools are located in Key
West.
Another surprise in the survey is the high percentage of
respondents who already own their own home: 57 percent. The-
balance rent, and of those, 23 percent rent apartments and 19
percent rent houses.
The results also showed a big interest in more rental oppor-
tunities, especially for homes vs. apartments.
This will become an increasingly" important factor as the
School District and other employers look to housing needs in
the future.
If our economy is to remain viable, we have to attract fami-
lies as part of the workforce. And those families and their kids
are the lifeblood of community schools. ,
So as the School Board and other big employers look ahead,
it's vital to uncover real needs, as opposed to those we guess at,
or hope to be true.
Having attractive and reasonably priced rentals could, in the
long run, be far more critical to the 'mission of attracting and
keeping teachers and other professionals, especially in the early
part of their careers.
But are we ready to listen?

Why exactly is Hendrick on trial?


EDITOR:
I write this letter with the following caveat: I
consider former Monroe County Attorney Jim
Hendrick a friend, mentor and upstanding citizen.
I practiced law in Key West until a couple of
years ago and worked with Jim on a sufficient
number of matters to realize he is an.honest
member of The Florida Bar and a significant
asset to the community at large. The only threat I
saw Jim Hendrick pose was to other lawyers not
possessed of his preparedness, incredible intellect
and voluminous knowledge of the law and
jurisprudential procedure.
I was in the building next door when federal
agents came looking to arrest Jim in an obvious
attempt to embarrass him in front of his employ-
ees, friends and the legal community.
I have no part in the ongoing trial, but a per-
sonal interest in the defendant/victim, so please
thoroughly scrutinize my statements and queries.
In other words, think for yourself. After reading
many editorials and news reports of the United
States v. James Hendrick, I have a few questions,
as I am sure do many of you.
If, in the government's theory, Jack London
and Randy Hilliard took money for political
favors, but Jim Hendrick did not, why is he fac-
ing trial instead of the scheme's perpetrators and
profiteers?
What exactly is the government trying to
prove Mr. Hendrick did?
Is he.accused of giving counsel to two sepa-


rate associates and perhaps clients?
Well, that would not be illegal, would it?
Is he accused of manipulating an elaborate
bribery scheme without pecuniary interest just to
say he was able to pull it off?
Well, that just does not make any sense, does
it?
Is the federal government really contending
that Mr. Hendrick would jeopardize a highly cre-
dentialed and exemplary legal career, the good
name of a venerable and successful Key West
law firm, and potentially sully the Hendrick fami-
ly name for generations to come? And for what?
Nothing, nada, zip?
Are they contending Mr. Hendrick jeopardized
a lifetime of hard-earned credibility and well-
earned respect merely so Jack London could sat-
isfy a paltry Irish lien of $29,000? Or are they
contending he jeopardized that lifetime of work
so the self-named Prince of Darkness [Hilliard]
could arrange an illegal bribe, for which Mr.
Hendrick, by the federal government's own
account, received nothing?
Like they said in the movie "My Cousin
Vinnie" the prosecutors' case don't hold water.

Editor's note: Hendrick is charged with
obstructing justice, tampering with a witness and
conspiracy.


Time's not right to open CommuniKeys plan


EDITOR:
The county's Planning Commission chairman,
Jim Cameron, is advocating to revisit the Big Pine
Key/No Name Key Master Plan. The plan is the
only one of all the master plans in the Keys
arrived at through thd long and arduous Livable
CommuniKeys program process that is complete
and in place.
The Tavernier master plan, hammered out over
a long period, is mostly complete but has not yet
been placed in effect. The Lower Keys area (Bay
'Point to the Torch Keys) is currently going
through a long series of Livable CommuniKeys
meetings to collect public input for the master
plan there. The process for the remaining Lower
Keys (Big Coppitt and Stock Island).has not yet
begun.

KAIR lives up to its name
EDITOR:.
One and a half weeks before Christmas, I
lost my job of two and a half years with
no notice. I was devastated.
I went four and a half weeks without any
money coming in. Behind in rent and no food
in the house, I went to see Marjorie Roberts
at KAIR (Keys Interdenominational
Resources). Bless her heart, she helped me
.the best she could, for she also was very low
on funds.
There are good, honest, hard-working peo-
ple out there that get thrown a curve ball once
and awhile. And thank goodness there are
people like Marjorie at KAIR.
I believe KAIR only operates on money
and food donations. So please have a heart
and take time to help this wonderful organiza-
tion. And thanks again to Marjorie, and thank
you people of the Florida Keys.

As a resident of Cudjoe Key, where we are in
the midst of our CommuniKeys process, I strong-
ly object to the county even thinking about
reopening the Big Pine Key/No Name Key master
plan until the remaining Livable CommuniKeys
processes for the rest of us in the Keys are com-
pleted.
The county's Planning Department, chronically
understaffed and overworked, has its job cut out
with the meetings and planning process for those
areas awaiting master plans. It is very important
that those plans be completed and in place before
planning staff gets distracted with a revisitation of
the only plan that is completed and in place.
Once all the community master plans are com-
pleted, it may be appropriate to look at them
again from time to time, but now is definitely not
the time to divert attention to reopening the Big
Pine Key/No Name Key plan.

One size doesn't fit all in funding government


EDITOR:
People living side by side in similar
homes often pay very different tax rates
yet receive the same level of services.
Elderly couples seeking to downsize are
likely to face dramatically increased
taxes in their new smaller home. These
stark inequities are creating an atmos-
phere of reform.
Good.
As citizens, we generally understand
the need to pay taxes, but we also
demand that they be fair and our current
system of taxing properties is not fair. In
response to public concerns, state law-
makers and our governor have vowed to
make changes. They are promising some
feel-good fixes, like doubling the home-
stead exemption, and are'gaining popu-
lai support in the process.-But a few nips
and tucks around the edges may not be
what the public is crying for, nor will it
repair a system that is out of'balance.
Let me explain.
Over a decade ago, voters agreed to
cap property taxes via the Save Our
Homes initiative, which limits the
amount by which property taxes may
increase for homeowners who remain in
their homes. This well-intended cap
shifted property taxes to new homebuy-
ers, renters, owners of second homes
and businesses. As a result of this unfair
shift, two-thirds of property taxes are
now paid by those who do not own
homes. Not only is this unfair, it makes
no sense.
What also makes no sense and is
often lost in this debate is the fact that
the state is, once again, in the process of
telling local governments how to raise
local taxes in order to provide local


services. But should state lawmakers in
Tallahassee alone be proposing substan-
tive changes to a taxing system that is
supposed to fund local city and county,
governments?
I am deeply concerned that local city
governments and the people we serve
will be stuck with a one-size-fits-all .
solution developed by state lawmakers
who are unaware of the diverse chal-
lenges facing local communities. One-
size government solutions rarely fit any-
one.
We support local control over local
taxes, and we prefer real taxing options
that fit our cities.
Florida's cities and their local citi-
zens should be given the authority to
design tax systems that suit their indi-
vidual, changing needs. Why stop at
doubling the homestead exemption?
Some cities may want it tripled or
quadrupled, while others may not.
Many cities may prefer having their
services paid exclusively through prop-
erty taxes because residents can take a
deduction on their federal income taxes.
Some cities may choose the local-option
sales tax because visitors pick up much
of the tab.
City governments and local voters
should decide how local cities fund local
services, not state lawmakers in
Tallahassee with their one-size
approach.

Tear down the airport and build

Cheap tickets out there

Let's not shoot Delta Airlines down
before it really gets started. The prices quot-

look like someone's pipe dream.
If you can plan your trip ahead, get on the
computers and go to www.hotwire.com or
I'm sure there are others, the same tickets
can be had for one half to one third that
price. The prices change every day and
sometimes every hour.

Respect Iraq veterans


EDITOR:
I am a Vietnam veteran that
served two tours. After.watchirlg the
news and reading the papers of the
Iraq war, it brought back a lot of bad
memories.
I returned from Vietnam in 1970
to serve at Fort Ord, Calif., as an
assistant drill sergeant training our'
young troops for Vietnam when I met
Jane Fonda. She was protesting at
one of our front gates. They had
many nasty signs that I really don't
want to talk about. It really got out of
hand when they started banging on
the gates. At that time, I asked her to
move the protest back. She spit in
my face and called us baby killers. I
don't understand why the news gives


her airtime. She should go back in
her hole.
There are other ways to protest
this war and I think Sean Penn said it
best. The citizens should go after
who they elected and tell them if you
can't do the right thing, you will be
replaced. We as voters have the
power to do this. People need the
power to do this. People need to
write their congressmen and senators
and tell them this.
We need to support our troops.
Our power is in numbers. These vet-
erans.need to know that U.S. citizens
are behind them so they can do their
job successfully.

'Red' is still remembered


EDITOR:
The L'Attitudes article published
in the Jan. 27 edition about "Red"
Williams, written by Cricket
Desmarais, is a nice remembrance of
the old sea captain. I thought by now
everyone would have forgotten this
character of Duval Street.
Now to the matter at hand: The
article mentioned a woman named
Betty, or Alice Radics, as being Red's
daughter. This is wrong. Red had no
daughters and only one child, me,


Wilfred Franklin Williams Jr.
Betty was an excellent caregiver to
Red in his later years. She made sure
he wanted for nothing.
The other error was the spelling of
his name. His name was Wilfred
Franklin Williams, not Winfred. He
was Red to everyone he knew. All the
facts may not mean a thing to anyone
but me so if he is going to be remem-
bered, let's get the facts correct.
Wilford F. Williams Jr.

The crowd was so large at Thursday's inaugural flight that the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office had to keep people back so the first passengers had room to
deplane.


Air service will receive support


EDITOR:
Enjoyed your coverage and photo
gallery on the return of the long-await-
ed commercial air service into
Marathon via Delta Airlines. As an
employee of another airline
(Continental), it was a great pleasure
flying standby to Atlanta the day after -

The staff at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport were both friendly and helpful,
leaving me with an impression of will-
ingness on everyone's part to make this
important venture the success that it
deserves. Congratulations and my very
best wishes for the future, and I trust
this new venture will be well support-


ed. I look forward to my return.

Pigeon Key documents up for review


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Pigeon Key Foundation
has pulled together many of the
documents requested by Monroe
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton, including proof of ade-
quate insurance coverage.
The County Commission
meets today beginning at 9 a.m.
at the Key Largo library. Among
items on the agenda: A discussion
of the foundation's lease of the
-historic Middle Keys island.
On Jan. 3, Hutton sent a letter
to the foundation board asking for
a list of documents she said were
missing from county files, includ-
ing:
Documentation to show
expenditures in excess of $1 mil-
lion in renovations.
Proof the foundation has
complied with a master plan it
submitted when it leased the
island from the county in 1993.
Documentation to show the


number of days the island was
open to the public in 2004, 2005
and 2006.
Proof of windstorm insur-
ance coverage.
Pigeon Key housed workers
constructing Flagler's Florida
East Coast Railway in the early
1900s and is on -the National
Register of Historic Places.
At the January commission
meeting in Key West, county
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro gave
the island's foundation until
March to fulfill Hutton's request.
However, according to a memo
issued by Hutton, many of the
documents have already been
supplied and will be reviewed at
today's meeting.
Many of the older records
were lost in Hurricane Wilma,
according to foundation board
Chairman Jim Rhyne. In an
unsigned statement to Hutton that

ments, the foundation noted the
master plan required rehabilita-
tion of the island's structures be
dependent on available funding.
"The buildings standing today
are proof that the restoration was
completed according to funding,"
it says
Foundation Executive
Director Marjorie Meams point-
ed out in December that the foun-
dation has taken on all costs and
that reconstruction of the historic


buildings has not cost county tax-
payers a dime.
In the meantime, the County
Commission is expected to
approve an agreement with the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation formally committing
the state to provide $750,000 it
promised toward ferry service to
the island.
In September, DOT's Alice
Bravo told the commission the
agency is willing to provide the


money to fund up to three years
of service for community access
to the island while the old Seven
Mile Bridge is being rehabbed.
Old age threatens to shut the
bridge any "day now.
In December, the commission
also approved a request for pro-
posals seeking a company to pro-
vide the ferry service. Deadline
for those proposals was Feb. 7
and the county is slated to award
the bid today.


Sandbar rules rippling


Village panel
seeking limits
on ramp tie-u
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


To preserve access to the
Whale Harbor Channel Sandbar,
says an Islamorada advisor,
action is needed to control the
worst weekends.
"We have been getting hints
[from other agencies] that if we
don't get control of the Sandbar,
somebody may be forced to come
in and do it for us in a way we
don't like," said Jim Trice, chair-
man of Islamorada's advisory
panel for waterway issues.
The panel, the Near Shores
Water Citizens Support Com-
mittee, has been working to
resolve sandbar issues for years,
Trice said.
"It's a very sensitive and diffi-
cult subject," he said. "A ton of
people have a stake in the
Sandbar. We realize that this is
Islamorada's beach, and going to
the Sandbar is a local tradition.
The thought of losing it com-
pletely is hateful."


At the 5:30 p.m. Thursday
meeting of the Islamorada Village
Council, Trice will recommend
the municipality seek assistance
from Monroe County and state
agencies to impose new rules dur-
ing the most hectic weekends at
the Sandbar: Hospitality Expo
and Memorial Day, both in May;
and the Fourth of July.
Specifically during peak times
that draw hundreds or thousands
of boats, the advisory panel will
ask that rafting tie-ups be limited
to three vessels each, and that
boats longer than 26 feet be
banned from anchoring during


peak times.
"There is a problem that we
cannot ignore," Trice said. "We
think this will help us get a han-
dle on it so we can keep the sand-
bar open throughout the year."
Holiday Isle Resort no longer
plans to stage Hospitality Expo,
Trice said, but that doesn't mean
boats will stay away. "The sand-
bar has become its own destina-
tion resort," he said.
In other issues at the Village
Council meeting, staff will list
existing buildings that could
serve as a permanent village hall.
Plans to build a municipal center
at Founders Park were put on
hold by rising cost estimates.


Missing boater home safely


Keynoter Staff


A Fort Lauderdale man is
.safe after getting caught in rough
seas aboard his sailboat headed
for the Keys over the weekend.
The U.S. Coast Guard reports
Timothy Stone, 52, was reported
overdue Monday after he failed
to return from a voyage.
Stone's friends told the Coast
Guard he had planned to sail his
22-foot vessel to Summerland


Key via the Intracoastal
Waterway, scheduled to arrive
"sometime Sunday. When they
had not heard from him by 10:20
p.m., they contacted the authori-
ties, which began a search.
A rescue boat from Coast
Guard Station Islamorada and a
helicopter from Air Station
Miami searched waters from
Hawk Channel near Marathon to
John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park in Key Largo.
Stone arrived with his vessel
at Holiday Isle Resort in
Islamorada Monday.
"He was safe, he -was just
running behind schedule," said
Jennifer Johnson, spokeswoman
for the Coast Guard, who added
that Stone was smart to have a
safety plan in place before
departure.
"He was absolutely right in
telling his friends and family
when he was scheduled to arrive
and instructed them to call the
Coast Guard if he did not arrive
on time," she said. "We would
rather have been searching for
someone and have a positive
ending than to have never
searched at all."

Housing update set for today


Rosch says stats
show over 650
units in decade
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

For those struggling to stay in
the Keys, it may seem the county
isn't doing much toward solving
the affordable housing issue.
But a presentation slated for
today's Monroe County Com-
mission meeting will show that
more than 650 units have been
created through the county's
Land Authority and another 210
are pending.
"The Land Authority's role in
the provision of affordable hous-
ing is the acquisition of the sites,"
Land Authority Director Mark
Rosch said. "The other steps in
the process, such as construction
and property maintenance, are
carried out through partnerships
with government agencies, non-
profit groups, and for-profit
developers utilizing Florida
Housing Finance Corp. pro-
grams."


Over the past decade, the
county has spent $21.5 million to
acquire land specifically ear-
marked for affordable housing,
Rosch said.
The Florida Legislature creat-
ed the Land Authority to fulfill
state mandates for affordable-
housing that came about with the
county's designation as an Area
of State Critical Concern.
Funding for the Land
Authority comes from a half-cent
tourism impact tax on lodging
and a surcharge on state park
admissions for parks in the Keys.
The total of these two taxes is
about $2 million a year, accord-
ing to Rosch.
Though there is a steady
stream of funding for the land
acquisition, enticing developers
to build the housing is getting
trickier all the time.
The county passed an ordi-
nance in early 2006 that requires
developers of market-rate units in
the unincorporated areas to dedi-
cate 30 percent of the construc-
tion to affordable housing. Some
municipalities also have rules


tying affordable, which is based
on income guidelines, to market
rate.
Habitat for Humanity has
three affiliates throughout the
Keys and has been the primary
developer of affordable housing
available for ownership.


Enticing
developers
to build the
housing is
getting
trickier all
the time.


The Upper Keys Habitat has
built 12 homes; Middle Keys
Habitat has created four units.
Habitat of the Lower Keys and
Key West has built 19 homes.
Affordable units for rentals are
more abundant, but rising proper-


ty values are making it harder for
developers to create these units.
Key West businessman Ed
Swift has been involved in build-
ing a number of low- and moder-
ate-income units in the Lower
Keys. He says the county needs
to be careful that incentives to
build affordable units, such as
allowing developers to transfer
market-rate building rights to
more desirable sites, don't do
more harm than good.
In recent months Swift has
noted the trend of big developers
purchasing mobile-home parks
and RV parks with the aim of
building affordable housing on
them in exchange for the ability
to transfer market-rate building
rights to waterfront parcels.
Though the county has no official
mechanism for that kind of trans-
fer, developers have been trying
to negotiate individual deals to
make the transfers happen.
The County Commission con-
venes at 9 a.m. today at the Key
Largo library. The meeting will
be broadcast live on Comcast
Channel 76 and be available
online at www.monroecofl.
virtualtownhall.net.

Prosecutors await


Grand Key reports


State officials
complete their
part of probe
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

The State Fire Marshal's
Office has finished its investiga-
tion into the December carbon
monoxide-related death at the
Doubletree Grand Key Resort in
Key West, although investigators
are waiting to turn over the
results to Monroe County State
Attorney Mark Kohl.
"Our portion of the report is
complete and we did meet with
the State Attorey's Office last
week," Fire Marshal's Office
spokeswoman Nina Banister
said.
Banister would not release
details about what the report
entailed, although she said the
two agencies agreed the state
office would retain its report until
both the Key West Fire Marshal's
Office and Key West Police
Department are ready to hand in
their reports, as well.
"We just want everything to
be in order before we begin" to


look into the investigations, State
Attorney's Office spokesman
Matthew Helmerich said. "When
we get the investigative material
from all the agencies, we will be
examining it to make a decision
about any potential charges."
The State Attorney's Office
will be responsible for making a
determination on whether crimi-
nal conduct led to the Dec. 27
death of 25-year-old Thomas
Lueders of Washington, D.C. He
died from carbon monoxide poi-
soning
"We will be investigating for
criminal culpability," Helmerich
said.
The 216-room DoubleTree on
South Roosevelt Boulevard has
been closed since Dec. 29, when
the city pulled its certificate of
occupancy and occupational
license following Lueders' death
and the near-death of his father,
Richard, after the two stayed in
Room 416.
The room is next door to a
boiler room that allegedly was
the source of the fatal levels of
carbon monoxide that killed
Lueders and made dozens of oth-
ers sick.


Primary care
to be available
at Good Health
The Good Health Clinic,
established in Tavernier 2002 to
provide free secondary and terti-
ary medical care to uninsured
Upper Keys residents whose
household incomes are less than
200 percent above the poverty
level, has expanded its services to
include primary care to its target
population.
Beginning March 1, patients
requiring primary care whose
income falls within the require-
ments will no longer require a
referral and will be seen and
treated for free.
Those who qualify can call for
an appointment. Walk-in patients
mfst be qualified before being
seen by the clinic's doctor.
As information .about the
expanded service becomes
known and patient volume


increases, the clinic staff antici-
pates expanding the number of
days it is open. Currently, the
clinic is open Monday,
Wednesday and Friday from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m.
Dr. Sandy Yankow, who
recently closed his private
Tavernier medical practice and
who was the guiding force in
establishing the Good Health
Clinic, will be the clinic's med-
ical director and full-time pri-
mary-care physician.
Yankow's medical specialty is
obstetrics and gynecology, but he
said "I anticipate that most of the
patients I see, both men and
women, will require basic med-
ical care, and that I am able and
competent to treat the needs of all
of the clinic's patients. If a patient
requires secondary care, I will
refer him or her to a specialist."
The Good Health Clinic is at
mile marker 91.5 oceanside. Call
853-1788 during office hours.

Proposal: Qaudruple


Botanical Garden


But transportation
facility could be
wrench in plans
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

While multimillion-dollar
condos and high-end dockomini-
ums are cropping up all over the
south side of Stock Island, one
group of green-minded residents
envisions a peaceful park north
of U.S. 1.
The Greenway Trail
Initiative, coupled with the Jose
Marti Cuban Forest and Garden,
would all be connected to the
existing 12.5-acre Key West
Tropical Forest and Botanical
Garden.
Tonight, the Community
Foundation of the Florida Keys
will announce a $4,800 leader-
ship grant for the garden to fund
a series of town meetings to find
out what residents want of their
Stock Island green space.
"This is so vital," said
Carolann Sharkey, chairwoman
of the Botanical Garden Society
board. "We need to be really cog-
nizant of eco-tourism."
The vision of the garden
expansion actually has three
components:
A greenways trail of bike
paths and foliage along College
Road.
Public access and observa-
tion points in the 30 acres sur-
rounding a freshwater pond that
lies between Lower Keys
Medical Center and the Key
West Golf Club.
A proposed forest of plants
indigenous to Cuba on the 20-
acre landfill known locally as
Mount Trashmore.
All three parcels belong to the
city of Key West, as does the
land currently housing the
Botanical Garden. In 2004, the
city received a state grant that
allowed it to purchase four acres


The Botanical Garden Society envisions a greenway all along
College Road, a wildlife refuge surrounding the freshwater
pond, and an exotic forest on the old Stock Island landfill.


along College Road from
Monroe County to expand the
existing garden.
Sharkey says the overall
vision would enhance the entire
island as well as improve the lot
for the organizations that already
inhabit city land along College
Road.
"We want to partner with
everyone and work together,"
she said. "This would provide a
great opportunity for [Florida
Keys Community College] to
enhance their marine and biology
programs. There could be a dog
park at the SPCA. And the lion's
share of all of this can be funded
by state and federal grants."
Pending construction of a $6
million transit facility could put a
fly in the ointment, however.
That facility is slated for con-
struction- at the former waste-to-
energy facility at the foot of
Mount Trashmore.
"We've already received total
funding for a total new transit
administration building," said
Myra Wittenberg, manager of


Key West's Department of
Transportation. "The location
cannot be changed or we will
lose $2.5 million from the state"
Department of Transportation.
Wittenberg says the city
looked at several sites before
deciding on the Stock Island
location for its bus storage, main-
tenance and DOT offices. She
says planning a transit facility
means looking at including
pedestrians and bicyclists, so
maybe the city's plans and the
garden's are not mutually excu-
sive.
"I do hope that we can work it
out to incorporate both uses,"
Wittenberg said. "Encouraging
better public transit will be key to
our quality of life on the island."
Since the city, county and
Marathon added bus service to
the Middle Keys, she said, the
current DOT facility on Palm
Avenue is too small.
Although the transit facility
will provide fueling, washing
and bus maintenance, Wittenberg
says the use "will be 50 percent
less industrial than what's exist-
ed there historically."
Sharkey says a garden on the
old landfill accessible by
raised boardwalks would be
an ideal use of land that is sitting
unused and unusable.
In the meantime, Key West
officials are working on drawing
up a lease with the Botanical
Garden. The society, which oper-
ates the garden, has been doing
so under the direction of a mem-
orandum of understanding with
the city since the 1990s.

Sigsbee housing dead, for now


Navy says RFP
can't be done
for many reasons
BY ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

The Monroe County School
Board faces challenges from the
U.S. Navy in its hopes of build-
ing affordable housing on the
site at Sigsbee Park Annex.
In a letter to Superintendent
Randy Acevedo dated Feb. 16,
Naval Air Station Commanding
Officer Capt. J.R. Brown said he
cannot support a district housing
community at Sigsbee Park
based on the current request for
proposals to build it.
The board discussed the
housing issue for Sigsbee for
just 10 minutes or so at its
Tuesday meeting in Marathon
but took no action.
Navy spokesman Jim Brooks
said Brown is not opposed to
affordable housing for the dis-
trict in general, but is opposed to
the current request for proposals.
Sigsbee Park Village, a devel-
opment corporation formed by
affordable-housing advocate Ed
Swift specifically for this ven-
ture, hoped to build between 30
and 46 affordable housing units
on the site.
Eighty percent of the units


would be sold exclusively to
School District employees. The
remaining 20 percent would be
available to rent for anyone
whose income puts them in the
city's definition of moderate
income.
The plan was for a 99-year
lease for about 2.5 acres adjacent
to Sigsbee Elementary School.
The land for the proposed
housing was transferred from the
Navy to the School District in
the 1960s. The district has an
agreement with the Navy that
allows civilian parents access to
the school.
However, Brown said the
Navy's intention in giving the
site to the district for school use
did not include using it for
affordable housing.
He cited several challenges
that the Navy recognizes with
respect to building housing at
Sigsbee, saying the site has strict
access requirements for national
security purposes and there are
legal and safety concerns regard-
ing the district's ability to handle
residents who act in ways that
are "a risk to the Navy's mis-
sion."
In cases of evacuation for a
hurricane, the Sigsbee site is
completely evacuated and
Brown said the district may have
difficulty requiring that residents


leave the site.
The Navy is not permitted to
provide law enforcement on
public property, Brown said, and
potential residents that are not
United States citizens might not
be allowed to live at this site.
Brown' letter also says that
"in any community, especially
one that is designed as afford-


able, the quality of life for the
residents is an important design
consideration. The district may
not be able to provide [its] resi-
dents a similar quality of life that
[its] neighbors are enjoying."
Affordable housing at Sigsbee
is still a possibility, Acevedo said
"The door is not closed," he

In recognition of Black
History Month, which is
February, Florida Keys
Community College will host
"Trippin' in Africa" with Amy
Culver-Aversa this week.
Culver-Aversa, former owner
of Mangoes Restaurant, will give
a lecture on her recent two-month
journey through Southeast Africa
with the Maasai bushman and
Arangue tribes.
"She has a lot of really great
stories about Africa," college
spokeswoman Lydia Estenoz
said. "It is supposed to be an
amazing lecture."
Culver-Aversa will give her
lecture from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Thursday at the Tennessee
Williams Theatre lobby on the
Stock Island campus, College
Road.
During her time in Africa,
Culver-Aversa traveled with the
semi-nomadic tribes as they


migrated from Mondoli
Mountains to the Rift Valley.
"She got to see an African cul-
ture up close and she'll be shar-
ing that experience with anyone
who is interested," Estenoz said.
The free lecture, sponsored by
the college Student Activities
Committee, will include Culver-
Aversa's insights on African
demographics, geographics,
medicine, politics, economics,
religion, business and education.
She will also integrate artifacts
and a slide show into her lecture.
Black History Month goes
back to 1926, when Harvard
scholar Carter Woodson organ-
ized the first Negro History
Week. It coincided with the birth-
days of Frederick Douglass and
Abraham Lincoln. That evolved
into the month-long Black
History Month.
For more information on the
lecture, call 296-9081.

Another chance for Johnson statues


New resolution
calls for trial
period of 60 days
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

Art lovers throughout Key
West hope the third time might
be the charm for the placement
of Seward Johnson's life-sized
and lifelike sculptures at the
Southernmost Point.
At tonight's City Com-
mission, commissioners will
again review a resolution to
place the seven bronze sculp-
tures of people from various eth-
nic backgrounds around the
Southernmost Point buoy..
Commissioners denied the
proposal in previous forms
both in November and again in


January.
However, tonight's resolu-
tion, sponsored by Com-
missioner Dan Kolhage,
would allow the statues, titled
"New Friends," to be placed
around the buoy for a trial
period of 60 days. One of the
former resolutions called for a
trial period of one year as sug-
gested by the Sculpture
Foundation, which oversees
Johnson's projects.
When the topic of putting
the sculptures around the pop-
ular tourist attraction came
before the commission in
January, a large number of
Keys residents, including Key
West Art in Public Places
board members, attended the
City Commission meeting to
show their support. But some

commissioners feared the
sculptures would take up too
much room at the crowded
location.
"It's not a question whether
we want it, it's a question of
the location," Commissioner
Harry Bethel had said.
Some commissioners also
did not believe the sculptures
accurately represent cultures
living in Key West.
The decision was split 3-3
(with Kolhage absent), and so
the resolution failed. Art in
Public Places member Monica
Haskell resigned her position
on the board as a result.-


'Vandenberg' OK
Also on the City Commission
agenda for tonight is a revised
final approval for the
Vandenberg project, which
would allow the city to take offi-
cial possession of the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg, a 520-foot former
military ship, in preparation for
its sinking'as an artificial reef
seven miles off Key West.
Most thought the commission
had already agreed to all neces-
sary paperwork for the project.
However, project organizers at
Artificial Reefs of the Keys were
unable to obtain a performance
bond due to "prohibitive costs."


The agreement between the city
and ARK now requires addition-
al revisions precluding ARK
from having to acquire the bond.
Vandenberg organizer and
Commissioner Bill Verge say the
changes are minor.
State and federal agencies
have already signed off on the
scuttling, set for spring 2008,
and are waiting on the city to
finalize its paperwork. Mean-
while, the ship is to be cleaned of
decontaminants at a Virginia
shipyard.
The City Commission meets
at 6 p.m. today at Old City Hall
on Greene Street.


Citizens promises better service


Time on phone,
.quicker checks
among pledges
Associated Press

Citizens Property Insurance
Corp. pledged last week to lis-
ten closely to its customers
and have a new, more con-
sumer-friendly way of doing
business.
Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Cabinet unanimously approved
a proposed customer service
plan for the state-run insurer
that sells policies to people
who can't find private cover-
age.
Crist told the company last
year to present the plan for
dealing better with policyhold-
ers to the Cabinet. On Feb. 13,


he said the plan looked good.
"Hopefully it's a precursor
of a new attitude and a new
way of doing things," Crist.
Also Tuesday, Citizens said
it has already closed 85 per-
cent of the claims from the
Groundhog Day tornadoes that
hit Central Florida Feb. 2 -
evidence of its new efforts to
quickly get people their
money.
In the past, Citizens cus-
tomers complained the compa-
ny didn't settle claims quickly.
In a special session on proper-
ty insurance earlier this year,
legislators pushed Citizens to
hold public hearings, listen to
customers and develop a cus-
tomer-friendly business plan.
That plan is due to be final-
ized later this year, but likely


will include the ideas outlined
Tuesday. The plan outlines
service improvements like
having a turnaround time on
written correspondence with
customers of no more than five
days.
Many of the items in the
plan are things the company
has already done, such as cut-
ting phone wait time by more
than 10 minutes, said Citizens
spokesman Rocky Scott. The
company will continue to hold
hearings to get more feedback
from customers, Citizens
Chairman Bruce Douglas told
the Cabinet.
Douglas also noted that the
company now has .2,000
claims adjusters available in
the event of a storm, many
more than it had in the past
when it was criticized for
being too slow.

Cops' surveillance,
leads to cocaine

Key West police seized more
than 20 grams of cocaine Friday
while doing surveillance "on a
suspicious area," according to
department spokeswoman
Christie Phillips.
She said Special Operations.
detectives were alerted to the
3200-3300 block of Northside
Drive when they started receiv-
ing numerous complaints of
"high activity levels of come-
and-go pedestrian and vehicle
traffic." In response, the unit set
up surveillance, and within an
hour arrested Michael Marrone
and Claussel Johnson.
Marrone, 31, was arrested in
the 900 block of Trinity Drive.


He had an active warrant for vio-
lation of probation and, incident
to arrest, detectives found .9
grams of powder cocaine on him,
Phillips said.
Johnson, 32, was arrested
shortly after in the passenger side
of a car. He reportedly had 19.8
grams of cocaine and was
charged with possession with
intent to distribute, as well as on
a warrant out of Collier County
for failure to pay child support.

Key Haven man
arrested for rape

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives on Tuesday
arrested a 24-year-old man for
allegedly raping a woman fol-
lowing a celebration-of-life serv-


Ryan B. Moe is charged with
sexual battery for allegedly rap-
ing the 26-year-old -woman
Saturday night at his Key Haven
home.
Sheriff's Office spokesman
Greg Artman said the woman
told detectives she met Moe at
the service Saturday night and
that they left together with a
friend who dropped them off at
Moe's home.
The victim said Moe sexually
assaulted her, despite being told
to stop numerous times. Moe told
detectives that the sex was con-
sensual, Artman said.
After investigating, detectives
obtained an arrest warrant for
Moe, who was taken into custody
at his home Tuesday afternoon.
Bond was set at $50,000.

Cheeca Lodge starts


new club for public


Membership offers
full access to
resort facilities
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter
ssanoski@keynoter.com

Islamorada resident and
retired dermatologist Les Safer
has been relaxing at the Cheeca
Lodge since the 1950s, when
his childhood home was just
blocks up the street. These days,
Safer still lives within walking
distance from Cheeca Lodge,
and he makes the trip multiple
times a day.
His usual routine includes
swimming laps in the morning,
using the fitness center and spa
with his grandsons in the after-
noon and maybe even squeez-
ing in a cocktail in the beach-
front lounge in the evening.
"You really can't beat this
place when you consider the
activities, features and loca-
tion," he said.
Safer is president of The
Club at Cheeca Lodge, a club
allowing members of the public
full access to all of the resort's
facilities. Along with using the
pitch and putt golf course, six
tennis courts, two swimming
pools and spa, members also get
priority sign-up privileges for
resort activities such as fishing
tournaments.
Becoming a member of The
Club at Cheeca Lodge requires
making a one-time refundable
deposit of $15,000. Monthly
dues are an additional $100, and
members can resign from the

James Johnson, director of
Cheeca Lodge and The Club.
Members also get 20 percent
off all food, drinks and stays at

A members-only clubhouse
is also being designed. Johnson
described the future clubhouse

New service delivers dinner


We Deliver 2You
has menu choices
for Lower Keys
By STEVE SANOSKI
Keys Sunday reporter '
ssanoski@keynoter.com

Those in the Lower Keys who
like to have lunch or dinner
delivered every now and then
have had relatively few choices
for quite some time.
"Chinese food and pizza, and
that's about it," said Trudy
Anderson.


Not anymore.
With the launching of We
Deliver 2You, Anderson is deliv-
ering dishes from some of the
area's most popular eateries to
Lower Keys doorsteps. The full
menus of Big Pine Coffee Shop,
Parrotdise Bar & Grill and
Fishcutter's Restaurant are all
available for delivery through
We Deliver 2You.
"It just gives people so many
more options," Anderson said.
"Between the menus, people can
choose from sandwiches, soups,
burgers, fish, pasta, ribs and


even fresh cooked or raw
seafood."
Anderson and her mother,
Martha Woodbridge, initiated
the delivery service in
December, and it is quickly
gaining popularity.
"We sort of started it just as a
test to see of people want this
kind of service, and it's really
taken off," Anderson said.
"We're working on adding a lot
of new restaurants as well, so
this is just the beginning."

week had the opportunity to
glimpse a plethora of the latest in

Cheeca a 'diamond'


CHEECA / From 16

Nearly 100 people have
gained membership to The
Club since Cheeca Lodge
began the deposit-based club.
"There was a little nega-
tive response to The Club at
first because Cheeca was
completely open to the pub-
lic for so long," admitted
Johnson. "However, we've
tried hard to show locals
who were not really initially
interested that this is an
affordable club designed for
their benefit."
Safer agrees, likening the
Cheeca Lodge he grew with
to an unpolished diamond.
"The dues were very inex-
pensive and the members


widely represented the com-
munity, but the facilities
were not always in the best
condition," Safer said. "The
new club is much better. The
facilities have been signifi-
cantly upgraded. It's really a
polished diamond now."

finished second this year.



LifeSmarts team falls just short


No repeat state
title for Keys
consumer team
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

A group of five students from
Marathon High School walked
into the Florida State Fair in
Tampa Monday as the defending
state champion of the LifeSmarts
competition.
There, the Marathon team
along with 13 other Florida
teams competed by answering
questions that tests students'
knowledge of personal financial
management, health and safety,
the environment, technology and
telecommunications, and con-
sumer rights and responsibilities.
Although the Marathon team
finished in second place and
missed a trip to Disney World in
Orlando for the National
LifeSmarts competition, team
member Cassandra Dickson said
the experience will last a life-
time.
"It's a competition, but


whether you win or not, you end
up learning a lot of things that
are going to come in handy down
the road," said Dickson, a senior
who is coached by Marathon
government and business teacher
Kathy Loggie.
"We learned a lot about how
to protect yourself against fraud
- mail fraud, online fraud, tele-
phone fraud. Some people don't
even know the basics about this,"
Dickson added. "I found that
really interesting and helpful,
especially for when I get a credit
card."
Learning is the whole goal,
according to program coordina-
tor the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services.
In a statement posted on the
agency's Web site, the program,
officially called "LifeSmarts:
The Ultimate Consumer
Challenge," is designed to
encourage students to think seri-
ously about important consumer
issues through a challenging,
game show format.
Last year, Marathon High
represented Florida at the nation-
al competition in Philadelphia.


The team competed against 31
other state-winning teams from
across the United States during
the three-day competition.
The national coordinator of
the LifeSmarts competition is the
National Consumers League.
Founded in 1899, the league is a
national non-profit organization
that identifies, protects, repre-
sents and advances the economic
and social interests of consumers
and workers through education
and advocacy.
Dickson said Marathon's state
championship last year came as a
surprise to her and the team, but
this year, most other teams knew
that Marathon was the team to
beat.
In the first round, Marathon
competed with two other 4-H
teams from Duval County in a
series of individual and team
questions ranging from environ-
mental issues to specific govern-
ment agencies and enabling acts
of legislation.
"They asked us some things
about a few acts that we didn't
really study," Dickson said.
"They also asked automotive
things, like the difference


between leasing and buying.
There seemed to be a lot more
automotive questions this time
around."
Marathon finished second in
its group and then moved to a
shootout round to answer more
questions against other second-
place teams.
Marathon won and then
entered a second shootout round
against winners from other
shootout rounds, and a win put
Marathon back into the finals
against the same Duval County
4-H team it met in the opening
round.
"I think we were pretty well
prepared," Dickson said. "Three
people were on the team last
year, so we knew what was
going to happen. And we had
practiced a lot. We talked all the
way up to Tampa in the van for
the seven-hour drive."
The final round was neck-
and-neck, Dickson said, but the
Duval team won with only a
two-question margin.
"It was really close, and our
team did really good," Dickson
said. "I'm sure the team will be
back next year."

Keys schools explore reefs


Partnership
is with PixLit
and Reef Relief
PixLit, a Sarasota-based
provider of high-quality online
video programs for teachers and
students, has partnered with Reef
Relief, a Keys nonprofit organi-
zation dedicated to protecting
coral reefs, to produce what
might be considered one of
today's most comprehensive
online learning tools on coral
reefs.
The four-part online course at
www.pixlit.com is designed for
grades five and up for both pub-
lic-school and home-schooled
students.
Phil Camillo, president of
PixLit, said it "contains enter-
taining and informative video
that is geared to both teachers
and students, with plenty of inter-
active exercises that reinforces
Reef Relief's message of pre-
serving and protecting our coral
reefs."
For a small fee, educators and
students can access online les-
sons produced from Reef
Relief's Discover Coral Reefs
School Program, with links to
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration and
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency Web sites for research;
and homework activities that
include puzzles, games and even
satellite monitoring of reefs con-
sidered affected by global warm-
ing. There is also a discussion


forum for users and a
teacher/parent guide.
Monroe County School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo has approved the new
online program for incorporation
into teacher workshops this year.
The four components of the
course are titled Living Coral,
The Growing Reef, Reef
Ecosystem, and Saving the
Reefs; each one builds on the
previous one.
"We've pooled our resources
to produce a high-quality online
course to introduce students and
educators grades five and up to
coral reefs. Thanks to the
Monroe County School District,
teachers, in the Florida Keys will
be among the first to explore it,"
Reef Relief Executive Director
DeeVon Quirolo said.
For more information, contact
Quirolo at 294-3100 or by e-mail
at deevon@bellsouth.net.
Global-warming dive
Bill McKibben and his group
Step it Up www.stepltup
2007.org are organizing April
14 as a day when people nation-
wide will go diving to show con-
cern for global warming.
Reef Relief is organizing the
Reef Relief Dive to Stop Global
Warming. Why on the coral
reefs?
Because, according to Reef
Relief, as water temperatures
rise, reefs become stressed and
lose their color and ability to feed
and process waste. And coral


bleaching and diseases are linked
to warmer ocean waters.
"This is a great way of show-
ing that divers care about the
impacts that global warming is
having on coral reefs," Quirolo
said.
The April 14 dive will be near
Key West. Divers will hold up
signs saying "Stop Global
Warming," "Cut Carbon 80% by
2050" and "It's Hot Down Here."
To make reservations for the,
dive, contact Lost Reef
Adventures at 296-9737 or send
an e-mail to lostreefkw
@aol.com.

Dolphins get first win of season


But tournament
ends in defeat
with mercy rule
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
baseball team finally got in the
win column with a 6-5 victory
over Westwood Christian Friday
in the second game of the Bash
and the Beach tournament in
Key West.
But the Dolphins lost in the
final round to South Miami, 13-
2, to put their tournament record
at 1-2 and season record at 1-4
with two preseason losses.
Coach Luis Leal said his
young team is starting to come
together but still can't find a way
to finish a game competitively.
"If you look at the first few
innings of these games, we were
leading and then we blow it,"
Leal said. "They are going to
have to keep their focus the
entire season."
In Friday's win, sophomore
pitcher Toby Eigner showed why
he will be the team's hdrse this
season after a complete-game
performance, giving up five runs
(two earned) off five hits.
"Toby looked really, really
.good, like he was in mid-season
form," Leal said. "He had all his
pitches, his fastball, change-up
and curveball, were all going
and Westwood couldn't get
much on him."

The young baseball season
will heat up in earnest Friday
night at 7:30 when Key West

"This will let us know

Miguel Menendez said.
Pace, which defeated the
Conchs, 9-1 and 8-1 last sea-
son, no longer has super hitters
Adrian Cardenas and Chris
Marrero, but the Spartans
return both starting pitchers.
"Their No. 1 and No. 2 guys

Conch places
fifth in state
at 189 pounds
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Key West High School's.
Ralph Major's bid for a Class 1A
state championship fell short
over the weekend at the Lakeland
Center, as he lost in a semifinal
match and eventually finished in
fifth place in the 189-pound divi-
sion.
"He was disappointed and he
took it hard after losing that first
match [Friday night]," coach
John Moeller said.
The match with Odie Delaney
of South Walton in Santa Rosa
Beach went back and forth and
Major held a 5-4 lead when he
was pinned.
"He had one shoulder up, but
the refs were calling fast.pins -
one-second instead of two-sec-
ond pins," Moeller said. "Ralph
knew he wasn't pinned, but that's
the way the sport goes. There
were 16 seconds left in the period
- that was the aggravating thing.
He really dominated the kid."
The junior then lost a decision
to Sam Johnson of Lithia
Newsome before winning his
final match for fifth place one
place higher than he finished in
the 2006 state tournament.
Major finished 42-3 for the
season.
Teammate Devin Genchi, who
was 1-2 at the state meet, finished
31-6. Genchi was eliminated
when he was pinned by Barney
Wainright of Suwanee, who went
on to win the title in the 215-
pound class.
The Conchs, who finished
31st in the state tournament, had
many moments of glory this sea-
son, winning three tournaments
and finishing second in the dis-
trict tournament.

Baseball Eagles ready to soar


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

One of Island Christian
School's strongest baseball teams
will not wait long to test its
prowess against South Florida's
best.
The Eagles travel to Miami's
Douglas Park to face defending
state champion Brito Private at 7
p.m. Friday.
"Our guys will learn a lot
Friday," ICS coach Tony Hammon


said. "It looks like a bunch of big
dogs against our young puppies,
but our guys would like nothing
better than to pull a David-and-
Goliath."
Island Christian opened its
spring season Tuesday at Florida
Bible (results not available at press
time) in a game Hammon readily
described as "a tune-up for Brito."
"The road to the [Class A base-
ball] state championship goes
through Brito," Hammon said. "It's


a huge game for us this early in the
season."
The Eagles return eight regular
starters from last year's roster that
finished as District 16-A runner-up
behind Brito, and reached the
Sweet 16 round for the first time
ever.
Hammon got the 2006 Eagles
ready for the playoffs by schedul-
ing tough opponents. This year, he
upgraded the schedule even more.
Lo Arce enters his third year as
a starter at the critical catcher's
spot and Arce is still a fresh-
man.
Andy Hertel moves from the
outfield to third base, but every
other infield spot has returning
starters: Matthew Izaguirre at first,
Tim Globus at second and Phillip
Izaguirre at short.
Jordan Izaguirre, Charlie
Marmitt and Tom Cavanaugh like-
ly will start in the outfield, but
Hammon noted "there are four or
five other guys we could put out
there and do fine. We've got 26
players, so a big challenge is find-
ing some playing time for every-
body."
Aaron Izaguirre and Phillip
Izaguirre both were expected to
pitch short stints Tuesday so they
could be available for Brito.
At the plate, the top of the line-
up remains unchanged: Matthew
Izaguirre, Arce, Phillip Izaguirre
and Aaron Izaguirre. Hertel bats
fifth.
"Right now, Aaron is our most
consistent hitter, and he hits with
power," the coach said.
Island Christian has a Tuesday
road game at Archbishop Carroll.
The first home game is March 6
against the Westwood Christian JV.


ment, and the program should get
stronger," said Moeller, who will
lose seniors Genchi, John Bader,
Jack Walker and Trey Key.
But Major will return to lead
next season's team.
"I think he'll be a little hungri-
er .for the championship,"
Moeller said. "He knows know
what tough competition is and
he'll work that much harder. We
are going to try to get him work-
outs this summer with an
Olympian wrestler."

Mazur eliminated
Coral Shores senior James
Mazur lost his first match in a
Saturday wrestle-back to Dephilo
Success of Glades Central and
was eliminated from the state
tournament in the 130-pound
class.
His teammate, 135-pound jun-
ior Jason Soares, also did not
place in the tournament.

J.P. McCabe looked good with a

The game was tied 2-2 head-
ing into the sixth inning when
Chris Garrett ripped a three-run
triple to put Marathon on top.
"-We knew with Toby on the
mound we would have a chance
to win," Leal said. "They came
out and played sound baseball.
From the first pitch to the last,
they wouldn't lay down."
Leal said that energy was all
but drained heading into
Saturday's loss that invoked the
10-run mercy rule after five

"I don't like to lose, but if we
get 10-run-ruled, I'd like to get it

Leal said. "We have to keep the
excitement and energy, and then
we can compete."
Leal said he'll also need one

starter Blayne Weller available
for relief.
"That is how we are going to
try and win big district games by
combining them," Menendez
said. "We feel that this will keep
the pressure of throwing a com-
plete game off of them."
The 3-2 Conchs are coming
off a 10-5 loss to West Boca
Raton Saturday night in the title
game of the Bash at the Beach
tournament.
In that game, Key West broke
a 2-2 tie and took a 4-2 lead in
the fourth inning on an RBI dou-
ble by freshman left fielder
Nolan Thomas and a run-scor-
ing single by sophomore second
baseman'Frankie Ratcliff.
Weller, displaying a hard
curve ball, pitched six strong
innings and the Conchs still held
the 4-2 lead when P.J. Arencibia
took the mound in the top of the
seventh.
Arencibia's first six pitches
were balls, and when he finally
found the strike zone, West


Boca teed off on the ball, even-
tually scoring eight runs in the
inning.
"I thought P.J. fought hard,"
Menendez said. "He will be fine
and is a big part of the future of
this program. He started off with
a walk, which hurt, but then he
got a pop-up for the first out and
we had a chance to make a play
on a weak fly to left and it fell
in."
Menendez said he considered
letting Weller pitch the seventh;
"but he had thrown 102 pitches
and I felt it was too early in the
year to get much higher than
that."
Thomas and a fellow fresh-
man, center fielder Michael
.Arencibia, continued to play
well. "The most impressive
thing last weekend was that both
struggled at the plate Thursday
and Friday but came up big on
Saturday," Menendez said.

Lady Conchs split Coral Reef


Extra-inning
loss gives team
a 2-3 record
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

When pitcher Lindsay
Yochum grounded the ball
through the infield with a run-
ner on third. and two outs in
the bottom of the eighth
Saturday, the crowd erupted. It
appeared that Key West had
tied the game to prolong a
rousing softball weekend at
the high school's picturesque
little ballpark.
Coral Reef right fielder
Jackie Roy, however, threw
out Yochum at first base to end
the game amid much
umpire bashing and give
the visiting Miami team an 8-7
extra-inning victory.
For Key West, the defeat
took the luster off a two-game
series that began promisingly
Friday night with a 3-2 victo-
ry.
Still, there was optimism as
the gray-uniformed Conchs,
who dropped to 2-3, sprawled
in left field to listen to coach
David Gootee and assistants
Bill Baker, Ralph Henriquez,
Kristen Frederick and Frank
Ratcliff.
Their remarks included:
"Games like this make you
better" ... "Character shows
when you battle all the game"
... "We're beginning to play as
a team."
The Conchs are beginning
to assert themselves as a team
at the same time Gootee is
asserting himself as the new
coach.
He has instituted a policy
- unheard of in sports, even
at the T-ball level that his
players can be interviewed
only in his presence.
The main presence on
Friday night was that of
Yochum, backed by a sharp-
fielding defense.
The sophomore pitcher
gave up a two-run homer in
the first inning, then held the
Cougars scoreless. She also
rescued with her bat a stagnant
offense that had managed two
hits the first four innings.
In the fifth, she doubled to
drive in a run, then scored on a
double by the energetic Jianna
Hernandez that tied the game,
2-2, and warmed about 60
shivering fans. The Conchs
scored their decisive third run
in the sixth on a ground-ball
RBI by catcher Allison Baker.


On Saturday, Yochum was
on the mound again as sun-
shine bathed the park on a
cool, crystal-clear afternoon.
The fans had barely settled in
when Key West, taking advan-
tage of walks and bunt singles,
scored four first-inning runs.
But Coral Reef- tied the
game, 5-5, with three runs in
the fourth inning. Meanwhile,
the Conchs looked tentative at
the plate, taking anemic
swings that rarely propelled
the ball out of the infield.
With one out in the top of
the eighth, the Cougars'
Allyssa Fried sent a Yochum
pitch over the center-field
fence to break the tie. The next
batter hit a fly ball that
dropped at the feet of center
fielder Ashley Henriquez, who
pointed out the sun as the cul-
prit. She wore no sunglasses.
Two batters later, a sacrifice
fly later made it 8-6.
In the bottom of the eighth,
Trish Wise hit a two-out RBI
single to left field to cut the
lead to 8-7, send Kayla Reams
to third base and bring
Yochum to the plate.
After the pitcher was called
out on a close play at first, an
angry Gootee, the 52-year-old
silver-hiaired longtime area
umpire, broke from the dugout
with pointed words for the
umpires, the last two of which
were "never again.".
Gootee, who wants to cre-
ate a positive atmosphere, had
been on the two umpires -
one of whom was working just
his second game through-
out the contest, creating a neg-
ative undercurrent.
After the game, an attempt
was made to interview
Yochum, though a reporter
was unaware of Gootee's poli-
cy and that, apparently, he
doesn't want prep students to
speak for themselves on such
weighty issues as, "Why are
you guys having trouble hit-
ting the ball out of the
infield?"
Gootee took exception to a
Keynoter article last week that
correctly described Henriquez,
the team's senior leader who
doesn't like- to fill in as a
pitcher, as reluctantly warm-
ing up before giving up eight
runs on six walks and three
wild pitches in three innings
against Westminster Christian.
Assistant coach Baker's
curious take: "She gave us
three strong innings."
Saturday's interview with
Yochum thus proceeded:


;M


"Lindsay, what was the |'-
pitch the girl hit for a homer in
the eighth?"

this week, with the softball
Dolphins hosting a team all the
way from Texas.
The Corsicana High School
team out of Corsicana, Texas,
just south of Dallas, was travel-
ing to play Key West this week-
end and decided to make a stop
in Marathon to play the
Dolphins at 4 p.m. Thursday at
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School.
"We are always up for new
challenges," Dolphins coach
Jason Frank said about the sea-
son-opening game. "I really
know nothing about them, but
it's Texas, so they'll probably be
really good."
Frank said the Dolphins will
already be at a disadvantage due
to four players sitting out for
breaking school and team rules.
Those students include two
starters and two key bench play-
ers, Frank said.
"We had to pull up a couple
of junior varsity girls to fill in,"
Frank said. "We're actually
going to start a JV player, which
should be interesting."
That player is first baseman
Megan McKenna, who will
move to outfield Thursday to
help tend Stanley Switlik's
shortened left-field fence.
Frank said to be competitive,
Marathon must rely on good
defense in the field and smart

Offensively, junior Alexis
Culver has been pounding the
ball in practice and needs to
continue her form, along with
catcher Morgan Longstreth and
team leader Melanie Boyd.
No. 1 pitcher Megan Gardner
will start, although Frank said
No. 2 pitcher Shelby Kuck
looked solid in this week's
scrimmage and could be ready
to come in if Gardner struggles.

Tennis
The girls' tennis team will
also host a talented team in the
form of Carrollton High School
at 3:30 p.m. Friday at the
Marathon Community Park.
Carrollton, a private all-girls
school, is a District 16-A team
that should give the Marathon
girls a workout, Dolphins coach


Mark Hooper said.
"They usually have a power-
house of girls, and many have
private coaches and tennis
courts at our house," Hooper
said. "We have a very young
team this year, and I told them,
effort, that's all I expect from
you."
Hooper said he was pleased
with his players' efforts in their
losses to Key West last week.
No. 1 player Gabby Brossard
will have the task of facing
Carrollton's best player, while
freshman Angela Farello will
compete in the No. 2 position.
Hooper said the best chance
for an upset win would likely
come from the No. 3 player
Kelsey Wonderlin, an eighth-
grader.
Eighth-grader Annabelle
Walker will fill in at No. 4,
while eighth-grader and first-
year player Sarah Bradshaw will
play at No. 5.

Rolex and IGFA
part their ways

The two hugely popular
International Game Fish
AssocLiaion annual billfish
and fly/light tackle compeln-
rions known as the
Rolex/IGFA Offshore and
Inshore Championship tour-
naments the lrter takes
place in the Keys have
taken on new names.
"The new titles for the
in, ltational tournaments will
reflect the continuing global
growth of each beginning
with the upcoming eighth
annual IGFA Offshore World
Championship this May and
the seventh annual IGFA
Inshore World Championship
in July, said Mike M)att. the
IGFA tournament director.
"The title sponsorships of
Rolex have come to an end.
We' e deeply appreciated
their generosity since the
beginning with the offshore
championship in the year
2000 and the inception of the
inshore championship in
2001. We'll be workingwith
them in other events."
Mi an said negotiations-
are underway for new pre-
senting sponsors.
For the past several years,
the celebrated fly and light-
tackle catch-and-release
event has been hailed as the
Super Bowl of inshore fish-
ing.
Both championships
invite the winners of qualify-
ing events to complete in the
tournament of champions.
Last \ear. the number of
IGFA-sanctioned qualifying
offshore tournaments around
the \ world grew to 117 events
in more than 40 countries on
six continents. As many as
70 teams and 33 countries
have been represented in the
offshore championship each
May in Cabo San Lucas,
Mexico.
And over six years, the
inshore in the Keys has
grown to 55 qualify) ing
inshore tournaments on four
continents. Tuhis ear. the
tournament is in July.

Capt. Steve Lamp from Key West shows his 24-foot Lake & Bay, Mad Fin Tournament Edition twin
Mercury 300 High Performance XS boat at the Miami Boat Show. This boat will cruise 55 to 60-
mph with the top speed reaching over 80 mph.



Why the need


for so much speed?


The boat show
is dominated by
top horsepower

After coming out of the Miami
Boat Show Saturday, I thought of
covering the standard new prod-
ucts, boats and engines coming
out for 2007. Then again, people
with high interest in all of that
probably have gone to the boat
show to begin with. So out with
the standard.
So instead, today it's all about
speed. At the boat show, the need
for speed was force-fed down
every aisle. Speed is sexy. Speed
is cool. Speed is manly. Speed
has infected the family roadster.
Speed sells.
Is it any wonder the biggest
unveiling at the boat show for the
third straight year was an engine
manufacturer upping the compe-
tition with more horsepower?
The buzz in Miami this year
was earned by Yamaha's not-yet-
released-to-consumers 350-
horsepower 4-stroke engine, all
whopping 805 pounds of 8-cylin-
der fury. I found myself feeling
slightly sad for the 40-, 60- and
70- horsepower 2-strokes that
were left all alone and neglected.
I counted 58 people gawking
at the 350, zero at their under-100
HP counterparts.


As I
continued
through the
boat show,
,e e Mevery eye-
cat c.h in g

stroke Suzukis, 33-foot
Hydrasport with triple 275-HP
Verados, Midnight Express, Sea
Hunter, Donzi, Contender, Baja,
Jupiter, Scarab, Regulator all
achieving speeds that would
attract attention from Monroe's
finest if on land.
And these are fishing boats.!
Not the testosterone, airbrushed
sex machines you see cruising the
Intracoastal Waterway in Miami
Beach. So much for getting away
from it all with a nice relaxing
day on the water.
It's not just the big-boat mar-
ket, either.


The fastest-growing segment
in saltwater boat sales is the bay-
boat market (22 to 25 feet), and
the adrenaline rush is on there big
time.
Shearwater, Ranger, Yellow-
fin, Phase III, Path Finder,
Everglades, Sterling, Scout and
many others are now showing up
with 200-horsepower and higher
engines as standard features.
Possibly the fastest "fishing"
boat in production could be the
24-foot Lake & Bay, Mad Fin
Tournament Edition with twin
300-HP Mercury High
Performance XS (and by the way,
twin means two, as in 600 horse-
power). That's one horsepower
for virtually every pound and a
half of boat.
Capt. Steve Lamp from
Dream Catcher Charters out of
Key West is going to be piloting
that blur of a boat in an upcoming
made-for-ESPN2 event with his
partner, Capt. Mark Johnson of
Islamorada.
Lamp claims that cruising
speed is 55 to 60 mph and top
speed is in excess of 80 mph.
That means roughly a 20-minute
ride to the Marquesas, 30 minutes
to Cape Sable and a little over an
hour to give your best wishes to
Fidel in Havana.
Again, speed is sexy, but does

ADRENALINE RUSH: The water's been cold lately, but this
winter dolphin, a 22-pounder caught by Mike Forest from

He landed it in 580 feet of water off the Lower Keys with

The stars come out


SUTPHIN / From 32

speed sell? Gas prices have
dropped considerably, but not to
20 cents a gallon. Is there a large
market for speed freaks out
there? Not according to John
Reigor from Turn Key Marine in
Marathon, who I found working
the Stamas booth.
"Reality is not four 300-horse-
power engines. That represents a
minute, sliver of the market," he
said. "People in the market for
those types of boats are fishing
the tournaments. They are fishing
a tournament out of Naples and
running to the fort (Tortugas)
some 240 miles away, and need-
ing to get there first."
Reigor continues, "There's a
bigger market for the boat that
runs 28 mph, runs comfortably,
and is a simple boat. In all hon-
esty, that is the client I much
rather cater too."
To prove the point, Reigor
mentioned an outstanding boat
show with two Stamas 34-foot
Tarpon models with twin 300
Suzukis having been sold on
Saturday alone (Cruising speed:


28 knots).
For those fans of fishing tele-
vision shows on ESPN2, Versus,
Sunshine Channel, Water
Channel and The Outdoor
Channel, you missed an opportu-
nity to meet most of the top stars
in outdoor entertainment at the
Miami show: Blair Wiggins,
"Addictive Fishing"; Tom
Rowland and Rich Tudor,
"Saltwater Experience"; Rick
Murphy, "Florida Sportsman";
Tred Barta, "The Best and Worst
of Tred Barta"; Dave Sutton,
"Chevy Fishing Report"; Guy
Harvey, "Portraits From the
Deep"; Norm Isaacs, "Big Game
Fishing the World"; George
Poveromo, "World of Saltwater
Fishing"; and Mark Sosin,
"Outdoors." All were very
approachable and eager to
answer any questions.

At 8 p.m. Monday on Comcast
Channel 19 on 'Reelin' in the
Keys with Cal,' Sutphin hosts
Doris Harris, Gainey Maxwell,
Martin Alsobrooks and Laurel
Gikas to talk about the-Key West
Fishing Tournament, coming into
its 42nd year:


Caught a good one?


Now make sure
the catch doesn't
get you back
They're here all of the wise
visitors from the north that have
enough sense to get the heck out
of weather that resembles falling
in the fish cooler (without the
smell, that is.)
Many of these wise visitors
are anglers and even though we
don't have too many bass, crap-
pie, blue gill or other fish famil-
iar to them, we do have enough
species to confuse the daylights
out of most.
I always like to take visitors
out and see the wonderment of
catching eight, 10 or even 12 dif-
ferent species on one spot with
the same exact rig and same
exact bait. If you ever think you
know them all, just go night fish-
ing on the reef and see what
comes out of the water.
One of the problems with all
of these different fish, and partic-
ularly those that frequent these
parts as opposed to freshwater
species, is their natural defenses.
For instance, picking up a
grouper or many other local
species by sticking your fingers
up the gills will usually result in
the angler obtaining a good look
at the bone in their fingers. Most
local species have spines
throughout their fins that will not
bend, but have a quirky tendency
to break off easily once embed-
ded in your body.
Notwithstanding is the real
business end of these fish, which
is the mouth. Most fish are aptly
named such as pinfish (just grab
one wrong and you will have no
further questions). Then there are
the snapper, which, once they get
hold of a finger, will let go only
to obtain a better grip.
Of course there are the mack-
erel and kingfish with their
numerous teeth, and the barracu-
da, which would be an orthodon-
tist's fantasy.
So what do you do with all of
these species once you catch
them? One phrase comes to
mind: Handle with care.
There are quite a few tools
that will de-hook fish and keep
your fingers away from the busi-
ness end of them. The use of a
rag will help keep you from
being poked and prodded by
their fins, but the best way is not
to have to handle them at all.
This is not only good for you
but also the fish, as the majority
of their immune system is exter-
nal and is located in the slime
that coats them. Once removed
by a' rag or other, shall we say,


not-so-
gentle han-
dling, they
are a big-
time target
for infec-
tion that
S could kill
them a day
or two
down the
road.
Speak-
ing of
Dave Navarro snapper,
all types of
them will be the main topic at
this week's free fishing seminar.
We will discuss lane, mangrove,
mutton, yellowtail and the tasti-
est of them all, the hogfish,
which is really not a snapper but
as good eating as all of them.
We'll cover techniques, loca-
tions, baits and lures that are
known to effectively capture
these species.
The free seminar will begin
promptly at 6 p.m. Thursday at
our Marine Educational Center at
the store at mile marker 50 bay-
side.
So now you are asking, What
is out there right now for me to
worry about?
The fishing has been so good
the past two weeks that I would
not have room to detail all of it,
but I can summarize.
Starting offshore, sailfish
,action has been spotty at times,
but when you find a pocket of
them, look out. And kings and
tunas have been quite good,
along with an inordinate number
of wahoo hitting deep-diving
plugs.

HE; HOTS DAN-


N :.


Reef action has remained
steady with a wide variety of
snappers and quite a bit of large
grouper. The patches have been
good for mutton and hogfish.
Inside the reef, Hawk
Channel's humps and bumps
have been very good for a huge
variety of fish if you take plenty
of chum. If you don't (if you
know me, you know what's com-
ing) take a good book, because
you'll just be sitting there for
while a long time.
The same can be said for the
area bridge channels, although

To be considered, you must
handle your fish using recom-
mended catch-and-release
techniques. Every angler's
responsibility is to strive for
100 percent survival of
released fish.
An ethical angler handles
his catch with wet hands only,
is careful not to poke fingers
into gills, and fully supports
the body weight of the fish by
cradling it horizontally. Large
fish should not be taken
aboard a boat, because remov-
ing it from the water can
injure the fish.

that describes techniques you
can use to increase the sur-
vival of released fish can be

The bay's hot


NAVARRO / From 33
you may need to move several
times before you find a good
collection of fish at one of the
openings.
Bayside is on fire with man-
grove snapper and mackerel,
particularly areas seven or
more miles north of the area.
Trout and redfish are also


prevalent throughout the
region.
It's all out there for you, so
go enjoy yourself. But remem-
ber: Like with many things you
may try to do, watch just where
you stick your fingers.
Capt. Dave Navarro owns
the World Class Angler in
Marathon and captains the
charter boat 'Dave's Dream.'
