offers a million-dollar view of
Florida Bay.
That's how much Jose and
Amarylis Lopez thought it was
worth. The Miami Realtors
priced the two-story canal-front

It was among the last views
seen by the Lopezes, who appar-
ently died of gunshot wounds
Thursday, shortly after leaving
the Anne Bonny Drive house on
the way back to Cutler Bay in
south Miami-Dade County.
"They both suffered gunshot
wounds, but everything the

Four are vying
for three seats
on commission

With the election in
Marathon heating up and can-
didates in Key West already
starting to get organized, it
may be easy to forget that Key
Colony Beach is also having its
own City Commission election
March 13.
Three two-year terms are at
stake in the at-large election,
and incumbents Tucker
DeGraw, Ron Sutton and Jeff
Vorick are defending their
seats against newcomer Lester
According to the most
recent reports from the Monroe
County Supervisor of Elections
Office, Sutton leads all candi-
dates with money spent so far.
Sutton has spent $799.52 on
campaign signs, banners,
obtaining voter addresses,
stamps and copying letters to
mail out. Sutton has paid for
the items with a $1,000 loan
from himself.

Candidates can loan them-
selves any amount of money,
but outside contributions are
limited to $500 from an indi-
vidual or business. Both contri-
butions and expenses must bal-
ance out by the end of a cam-
DeGraw has spent the sec-
ond most, $425.80, nearly all
for campaign signs. DeGrav
loaned himself $100 and has
received-$600 in other contri-
Key Colony resident Helen
McDonough contributed $150,
while Richard and Judith
McDonough of Foxboro,
Mass., donated $100 each.
Massachusetts resident Cecelia
Perry donated $100.
DeGraw also received $150
worth of in-kind contributions
from Collectors Corner in
Marathon in the form of cam-
paign pins.
Lester has spent $256.22,
mostly for campaign signs.
Lester paid it with a $400 per-
sonal loan.
Vorick's campaign reports
may be the most simple: The
only expense is the 80-cents
fee for the elections office to

verify petitions for election
Vorick also lists a $100 per-
sonal loan as his only contribu-
The issues in this year's
election have been almost as
straightforward as the cam-
paign reporting.
The three incumbents have
stated desires to continue
working ongoing issues such as
the placement of utility wires
under city streets, addressing
sewer and boat-ramp problems,
and working out a new contract
for fire and emergency medical
services with the city of
The challenger Stevens said
he's not running against any
candidates or any particular
stances by the commission, but
simply wants to lend a new
voice to the board and become
more involved with city issues.
Key Colony Beach has
opted out of early voting,
which started for Marathon on
Election Day voting will
occur from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Vasil for the two-year terms.
Pinkus, a contractor by trade,
won election in 2003 and 2005
and served as Mayor in 2004. He
was hired as a project manager by
developer Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas in August 2005.
Pinkus announced his with-
drawal on a local morning radio
show and said as a project man-
ager for Cay Clubs, he has to
recuse himself from voting on
any issue that affects his employ-
In a conversation with the
Keynoter, Pinkus added that he
would also be forced to recuse
himself on many other citywide
issues mostly involving
changes to the city's land devel-
opment regulations simply
because they could potentially
impact Cay Clubs.
Pinkus said a prime example
was when he recused himself as
the rest of the council approved
an ordinance allowing the trans-
fer of building rights in
"I was a very strong propo-
nent to go one-for-one on the
affordable housing requirement,
and it only went to 30 percent,"

he said. "It was a loss of afford-
able housing, and I had absolute-
ly no say in it"
Pinklis, who had first stated he
would not seek re-election before
entering the race on the final day
of candidate qualifying, sounded
sorrowful as he described how he
came to the decision over the
weekend after conversations with
friends and some personal reflec-
"One thing I'm very much
known for is the good due dili-
gence research, and I thought I
had done enough of that to make
my decision to run for city coun-
cil," he said. "It was me realizing,
'My god, is it more of a detriment
for the city for me to be there?'"
Pinkus' announcement comes
too late for his name to be
removed from the ballot, County
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer said, as early voting has
begun and more than 184 absen-
tee ballots have already been
Any votes for Pinkus would
be ignored in the counting.
"Right now we are actually
prepared for voting and voting is
going on," Sawyer said. "The
programming is set, and we can't
go in and start manipulating the

Sawyer said elections officials
are adding a written notice to all
absentee ballots now being
requested, and workers are ver-
bally informing residents who are
early voting.
Early voting began Monday

Marathon Elections Office on
63rd Street. Voting hours are
from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and

Cinque, Nelson, Vasil rebuke council

Mearns, Bartus
defend actions at
Monday debate

Marathon City Council candi-
dates squared off in a debate
Monday night sponsored by the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce, and viewers seemed
to get a good glimpse into the
five's stances and abilities in pub-
lic discourse.
Candidate Mike Cinque sat in
the mayor's center chair at the
Marathon Government Center
that night and, along with candi-
dates Joanie Nelson and Don
Vasil, took current and past coun-
cils to task over perceived inef-
fectiveness in several policy
Incumbent Marjie Mearns and
past councilman and mayor John
Bartus defended their tenures and
gave examples of past and cur-
rent successes that warrant their
return to the dais.
Cinque began by asking why
the council has not moved for-
ward on city beautification,
including using the city's unsafe
structure's board to condemn the
abandoned Quay restaurant as it
has condemned some residences.
Nelson, who again spoke on a
platform of "protecting the little
people of Marathon," said large
developers should be made to
help landscape the city.
Vasil, who spoke mostly in
general terms, said the council
should support the small-business
community's ability to take care

A Marathon woman was
killed Saturday when she was
struck by an unknown driver
while riding her bike across U.S.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, 43-year-old
Crystal Sue Moyer was crossing
the southbound lanes of U.S. 1 at
91 st Street on a Roadmaster bike
when she was hit by a white pick-
up that fled. Moyer was thrown
from her bike into the path of a
second vehicle, a 1999 Ford sport
utility vehicle driven by Dionisio

of its own properties.
Bartus said the city is still
young and needs to wait until
central sewer pipes are installed
before trees and landscaping are
added to city streets.
Mearns echoed Bartus and
added that the city does have
ordinances in place to address
beautification, including new
impact fees.
The panel also disagreed on
perceptions of residents' ability to
obtain building permits from the
city, which Cinque, Nelson and
Vasil said is skewed against resi-
dents and makes it easier for larg-
er developers with hired consult-
Bartus said completion of the
city land development regula-
tions should free up the planning
and building departments to
focus more on construction per-
mits, although the process may
need to be streamlined.
Mears said she has received
compliments on the city's permit-
ting process, and that many of the
hardships may be due to residents
not having all the necessary
paperwork and other data ready
during the application.
The panel saw a similar divide
on how the council has handled
workforce housing, preserving
the working waterfront and
installing and funding waste-
With the latter, Bartus repeat-
ed his experience in lobbying to
"ensure the state remains a part-
ner ... and make sure that the
money does show up, and shows
up in a timely fashion."
With city spending, Mearns

troopers have no further leads on
the hit-and-run suspect. "We
could use any help," he said, not-
ing that they are looking for a
white pickup truck, "probably a
Chevy or GMC, half-ton or three-
quarter-ton model."
Folsom said Cisneros does not
face charges in the incident, and
that "it appears the person we're
looking for actually propelled the
bicycle into the path of
[Cisneros'] SUV."
Anyone with any information
should contact the patrol at 289-
2383 in Marathon, or (305) 470-
2500 in Miami. Cpl. Ray Puentes
is the investigating trooper.

said the city is "doing well," and
doesn't understand much of resi-
dents' complaining, while Bartus
acknowledged some excess
spending and made a pledge to
achieve a rollback millage if
Spending was a chief concern
for the other three candidates,

with Cinque saying departmental
costs have increased up to 15 per-
cent per year, and "I don't know
of too many business people that
have 15 percent increases in oper-
ating costs per year."
Vasil said the economic slow-
down for most Marathon busi-
ness has not translated to the city,

and that "even many of the devel-
opment projects are not moving
forward, yet city spending contin-
ues on wildly."
Nelson said the city needs to
"cut this bureaucracy" that has
increased costs, as well as stop
"wasting money on studies ad
nauseum by outsiders."

formal complaint to the ACLU
of Florida.
"I feel my freedom of
speech was violated, debased,
stomped on," Thacker wrote.
"And I am fearful of attending
other [commission] meetings
due to the fact of Mayor Di
Gennaro saying he can stop
me from attending these meet-
"There is no authority
inherent in the position of
mayor to bar Ms. Thacker, or
any other person, from future
meetings," County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton wrote in an e-
"These cases don't happen
if people are sensible," Lister
said. "It's totally illegal what
he did."
Lister sent the ACLU letter
to all of the commissioners.
"The mayor has behaved
not only inappropriately, but
illegally," she wrote. "The
commission should take
action immediately to ensure
that Mayor Di Gennaro, if he
retains that position, recog-
nizes his responsibilities to
the public, and particularly to
those who take an interest in
public business and are well
enough informed to take part
in it and express their views
regarding the commission's
decisions. Ms. Thacker
deserves and should receive a
public apology."
"I disagree with the letter,"
Di Gennaro said. "She wasn't
recognized. She was disrup-
tive. She was making faces,
"I did not make a sound,"
Thacker said. "All I did was

gesture. Something has to be
done about this angry man we
have as a mayor."
"Unlike some local govern-
ments, we do not have an ordi-
nance setting forth what con-
stitutes an impermissible dis-
ruption of the commission
meetings," Hutton said in her
e-mail. "There is case law
which supports the authority
of a mayor to maintain order
in the meeting room, and the
removal of disruptive persons
from a local governing body's
meeting as a reasonable regu-
lation of time, place and man-
Sheriff Rick Roth said his
deputy was prepared.
"We had this discussion
maybe two weeks ago in this
office," Roth said, "when the
mayor [previously] threatened
to have [Thacker] removed."
Roth said he understood
that case law does give the
mayor the authority to eject
someone from a meeting.
"I told the deputy to do
what the mayor directed him
to do," Roth said. "He was
acting bn a prior directive."
Both Hutton and Di
Gennaro said Thacker was
"disruptive" earlier in the Feb.
21 meeting. Di Gennaro has
admonished her at previous
meetings for clapping and
talking in the audience.
"I did quietly tell her to
keep it down," Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy said. "As
someone who's prone to do it,
I'm very much against speak-
ing out from the audience. I
actually advised her a few
months ago to just give a
thumbs up or down when she
doesn't agree."

or accepting a job as Treasure
Village's city manager, council
members said.
At Thursday's council meet-
ing, some of Word's harshest crit-
ics asked him to rescind his resig-
nation, which they demanded and
got in January.
Word said he would consider
withdrawing his resignation. But
the next day it was revealed he's
one of four candidates for the
Treasure Island post in Pinellas
Treasure Island's City Council

is expected to announce its
choice on March 1. Word is
scheduled to meet with city offi-
cials today and Thursday.
Word said Tuesday he "owes
it to his family" to go up for the
meeting with the Treasure Island
officials, and that he made a com-
mitment to do so before last
Thursday's meeting.
Islamorada Mayor Chris Sante
said his colleagues decided at a
special meeting Monday to give
Word until the council's March 8
meeting to make his decision
If he chooses to go to Treasure
Island, the council will hold a
meeting March 22 to "define
guidelines" for hiring another vil-
lage manager, Sante said..
Councilwoman Cathi Hill said
the council decided Monday that
Deputy Village Manager Ed
Koconis would be interim man-
ager if Word decides to leave.

Council members are also sup-
posed to turn over to village staff
their opinions of what character-
istics a new manager should
have, Hill said.
Word resigned in January after
critics on the council, chief
among them Vice Mayor Michael
Reckwerdt, voiced dissatisfaction
with Word's management style.
Theysalsocriticized Word for
problems plaguing Plantation
Key Colony's sewer system,
which resulted in an ongoing
investigation by the Florida
Department of Environmental
But Reckwerdt said at
Thursday's meeting that since
Word turned in his resignation,
his management style has
improved, and he asked him to
stay on. Word told the council he
would think it over.
Since it came out that Word
was on the short list for the
Treasure Island job, he had said
he would meet with that city's
officials, but was seriously con-
sidering staying with Islamorada.
Word met with Islamorada
council members individually
this week, he said, to see if their
views of his management style
have changed.
He said, "I thought it was a
good exchange."
Jeff Jensen, spokesman for
Treasure Village, said Word is a
strong candidate, and the only
one with experience in a seaside
town, which makes him familiar
with tropical storm issues. Some
issues working against Word's
consideration are that two of the
other candidates live in Pinellas
County and the other in nearby

Housing questions clear,

the answers not so

We could plead being colorblind.
But that doesn't quite make up for transposing data in an
important School District housing survey and reaching an erro-
neous conclusion.
That's what happened in our Feb. 17 report on the results of
a districtwide survey of teachers, administrators and non-class-
room staff.
In looking at a pie chart with a color-coded legend, our
reporter lumped together two slices and reached the wrong
conclusion: That more employees responding were interested
in renting, not owning.
In fact, the data shows 73 percent of the 440 respondents
indicated a preference for owning. And 26 percent preferred to
rent. One percent indicated no preference.
Our editorial that followed on Feb. 21 was headlined:
"Housing survey reveals need for rentals."
It could just as easily been headlined: "Housing survey
reveals need for housing."
Because 57 percent of the employees who responded already
own a home, the preference to own, not rent, seems rather obvi-
Perhaps even more revealing is the section where only renters
were asked to describe their monthly expenses for rent plus
utilities. Of the 291 renters who participated, 35 percent report-
ed spending more than $1,400 per month for housing and util-
ities. Another 33 percent spent $1,000 to $1,300, per month.
Eighteen percent spent under $1,000 per month, and those
are the most threatened in the Keys high cost housing environ-
What makes this survey and the conclusions so important is
pretty obvious.
The Monroe County School Board, along with other govern-
mental bodies, has concluded that housing costs are having an
adverse impact on its ability to deliver services.
In the case of the school system, those housing costs are also
driving away the very families whose children provide the soul
and substance of a public education system.
Tonight, the School Board will hold a public workshop at 6
p.m. at Sugarloaf School's media center to discuss a proposal
for 36 affordable units to be built on a corer of the school
Protesters already showed up with signs outside the school
Tuesday, clearly opposed to this development in this location at
this time.
And time, you see, is the one commodity that's-quickly run-
ning out for those already in the system and those who will
replace those teachers and administrators and school staff who
retire, sell and move away.
We already hear complaints about the number of substitute
teachers being pressed into service to keep classrooms staffed.
And the survey found 146 School District employees indi-
cating pending retirement within three to five years. Another
109 plan to retire in the next five to 10 years.
Unless some breakthroughs happen, the results of future sur-
veys will become moot as fewer district employees are left to
answer the questions.

Crist needs to make ocean health a priority

The Joint Ocean Commission Initiative issued
its second annual U.S. Ocean Policy Repdrt Card
on Jan. 30. Our nation's overall average is a C-
minus. Despite actions at all government levels,
ocean policy reform is moving at a snail's pace,
with little funding to support it.
Here in Florida, we have an opportunity to
turn that tide and make ourselves a leader in
ocean policy along the way. Gov. Charlie Crist
and his administration now have a choice: They
could proceed with business as usual or they
could choose another course, sustainability.
While the governor must balance many fac-
tors, including the daunting task of insurance,
now is the time for insight and forward thinking
if we are to protect the public health, welfare and
safety in a new world of stronger hurricanes, ris-
ing sea-levels, red tides and declining fish popu-
lations. In doing so, he will ensure healthy and
vibrant ocean and coastal ecosystems that are
crucial to our sustained economic well-being,
public health and standard of living.
Gov. Crist has the ability to freshen the atmos-
phere in state agencies that too often favor policy
outcomes that make an orphan of sound science.
Further opportunity rests with his new adminis-.
tration like the head of the Florida Department
of Community Affairs Tom Pelham, responsible
for growth management; Mike Sole, head of the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection;
the Environmental Regulatory Commission; the
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission;

and, last but not least, the governing boards of
the state's water management districts.
Most importantly, Gov. Crist should imple-
ment several policy recommendations offered by
both the Florida Coastal and Ocean Coalition in-
its blueprint (www.nrdc.org/oceans/flori
da/flfuture.asp) and the Joint Ocean
Commission Initiative's report card (www.join-
toceancommission.org). Such recommenda-
tions include:
Create an office of environmental affairs in
the executive office of the governor to coordinate
.scattered programs and provide unified leader-
ship, with citizen involvement, for ocean and
coastal management.
Fund the Florida Oceans and Coastal
Resources Council and ocean research priorities
identified by the council.
With public involvement, create a state cli-
mate plan by the end of 2007. Such a plan ought
to protect Florida from the worst of global warm-
ing's impacts, reduce Florida's global warming
emissions and lead our state toward a clean
renewable energy future that creates jobs and
boosts our economy.
Reevaluate the 20 year-old Coastal
Construction Control Line Program in order to
ensure the program is accomplishing its coastal
resource protection goals.

Public has a right to disapprove of government

Our chapter of the American Civil Liberties
Union'has received repeated complaints about
Mayor Mario Di Gennaro's treatment of Monroe
County citizens who attend County Commission
meetings and express disagreement with deci-
sions and/or comments made by the commission.
Unfortunately, the Feb. 21 commission meet-
ing was another example of the mayor's inability
to deal with dissent in a temperate and judicious
manner. His actions in ordering Sheriff's Office
personnel to eject Kay Thacker from the meeting
were in clear violation of her First Amendment
and Fourteenth Amendment rights, and contrary
to Florida law and Monroe County's own proce-
We watched the entire meeting on television.
Rightly, Ms. Thacker was permitted to make her
comments regarding agenda item R-1 without
interruption or unpleasantness. Apparently, how-
ever, her gesture expressing'disappointment with
the commission's decision (a gesture directed
only at the commission) annoyed the mayor. Her
action was silently to put her thumb down, her
arms above her head. This was an expression of
disapproval that did riot interrupt or impede the
meeting in any manner.
The mayor ordered her ejection.
Commission meetings are public forums, open
to everyone, unless they are closed to the public
for specific and justifiable reasons. Since they are
public, and in fact are so in order to afford
Monroe County citizens an opportunity to
observe the commission's deliberations and to
formulate and express their opinions, the mayor's
action was therefore [possibly] illegal under
established precedents.
The government's power to limit free expres-
sion in commission meetings (unfortunately, the
mayor was acting for all five commissioners,
since none of them protested his action) is subject
to the strictures of the First and Fourteenth
amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Free

expression may be reasonably limited by rules,
such as those of the commission, that restrict
time, place and manner of public expression.
The mayor of Monroe County does not have
the authority to order a member of the public to
be removed from a public meeting unless that
person has actedin a way that can reasonably be
defined as disorderly within the meaning of coun-
ty procedures. Ms. Thacker's conduct at the Feb.
21 meeting-was not disorderly and did not violate
The mayor's authority is limited by the
Constitution, Florida statute and Monroe County
ordinance. The rest of the commission should
review and reconsider their responsibilities to
protect the public and the public's right to free
expression with the county lawyer.

Marathon flights too expensive

A major airline has just started
to have regular flights into
Marathon. It's about time, after
all the money that has been spent
upgrading the terminal, etc.
So I went over there and
checked on the price of a round-
trip ticket to Raleigh-Durham -
$648. That seemed kind of high
to me, so I asked how much from

Fort Lauderdale to Raleigh-
Durham $192 round trip. That
is a $456 difference just to fly out
of Marathon.
I wonder if this airline is not
taking advantage of being the
only scheduled air carrier. Is this
what some people would call
price gouging?

A thumbs down to mayor

for stifling free speech

Our constitutionally challenged Monroe
County mayor, Mario Di Gennaro, might
want to tour Naval Air Station Key West to
see when an ejection button is really needed.
Because he certainly has no clue right now.
In the few months since his County
Commission colleagues named him mayor,
Di Gennaro has trampled on the right of free
speech in the name of what he calls keeping
order at commission meetings.
And he's done this by violating the very
county policy on meeting decorum he claims
to try to maintain.
You've likely heard about the latest sad
episode. It happened at the Feb.
21 commission meeting in Key
Largo, just after a 4-1 vote allow-
ing a resort development at mile
marker 99.
Resident Kay Thacker, who for
some reason gets under Di
Gennaro's skin more than any-
one, gave a thumbs-down gesture
three times. .
This was enough for Di
Gennaro to order a Sheriff's
Office deputy to lead her out of
the meeting with just three Larry
minutes left to go. At least the Keynote
mayor was polite as he banished
her --and give some credit to County Clerk
Danny Kolhage, who continued-his work as
if nothing was going on.
Here's how it played out:
Kolhage: "R-2 is a public hearing to con-
sider approval of a resolution for a budget
amendment to the general fund..."
It's 5:43:56 p.m. Thumbs down No. 1.
Di Gennaro: "Kay, that's out of order.
You're out of order. Miss Thacker, you are
out of order. That is not correct; no one's
conducting themselves this way here and I
5:44:06. Thumbs down No. 2.
Kolhage: "The unincorporated..."
Di Gennaro: "Sheriff, remove her..."
Kolhage: "...service district...
Di Gennaro: "If she does it one more
time, remove her. Only if she does it one
more time. Please don't do it anymore.
Please, please be so kind."
5:44:19. Third time's a charm.
Di Gennaro: "Remove her."
Unidentified: "Ah, Judas Priest."
Kolhage: "...parks and recreation fund..."
Di Gennaro mayor by political fluke,
Snot public acclamation apparently felt
Thacker violated Section 1.14 of the County
Commission's administrative procedures,
which reads:
"Any person making impertinent or slan-
derous remarks or who becomes boisterous
while addressing the commission shall be
barred from further audience before the com-
mission by the presiding officer, unless per-
mission to continue or again address the

commission be granted by the majority vote
of the commission."
Merriam-Webster defines "impertinent"
thusly: "Not restrained within due or proper
bounds especially of propriety or good taste"
or "given to or characterized by insolent
Thacker said nothing. She remained seat-
ed. She merely pointed her thumbs down.
But she gets kicked out because the mayor
already with a reputation, deserved or not,
for being a bully doesn't like the gesture.
"He has forgotten our constitutional rights.
I was flabbergasted that I couldn't express
my opinion," she told me.
By any measure, Thacker did
not violate the administrative pro-
cedures. But Di Gennaro did
because he's the one who became
"boisterous" rather than let a resi-
dent'of this county silently protest
a commission vote.
Let's go back a few weeks
S more, to the Feb. 8 commission
'r, workshop and meeting on the job
S status of County Administrator
Tom Willi. Again, Di Gennaro
Kahn decided free speech is not allowed
,r Editor in the commission chamber. This
was made even more odd by the
fact that he agreed with the speech he was
The "speech" was in the form of residents
wearing shirts stating their support for Willi.
Di Gennaro who later voted to keep Willi
as administrator told those donning the
shirts (including his wife) to remove them.
He said they "can't be publicly displayed in
this room."
The bizarre factor goes up even more:
County Attorney Suzanne Hutton agreed,
saying something to the effect that the Willi
supporters' point was made and there was no
longer reason to keep the shirts on.
It seems pretty obvious the county attorney
hasn't read the First Amendment lately. If
she had, she would have told the mayor he
couldn't order the shirts removed.
I asked Sheriff Rick Roth where this puts
whatever deputy is assigned to the commis-
sion meetings. His short answer: In an
uneasy position.
Referring to the Thacker ejection, Roth
said, "If she had refused to walk out, I don't
know what we would have done."
But Roth does have some advice for the
mayor if in the future Di Gennaro believes
someone is disrupting a meeting and the
attending deputy doesn't agree: "I'm going
to suggest to Mario he adjourn the meeting,
walk away from it.... I'm going to suggest he
adjourn the meeting, or at least recess it. And
I think that's the appropriate thing to do."
I was going to call the mayor and ask him
his thoughts' on all of this, but feared he'd
eject me from this column.

Feds nix Coast Guard

housing in Marathon

Agency looking
at other options
for its crews

It seems one federal agency
won't let another federal agency
build housing on its land in the
The U.S. Broadcasting Board
of Governors has decided not to
let the U.S. Coast Guard con-
struct 22 housing units on the
Marathon property where the
U.S. Office of Cuba
Broadcasting operates radio tow-
ers transmitting American news
to Cuba via Radio Marti. The
property is across from
Sombrero County Club's-golf
Joe O'Connell, public affairs
director for the Board of
Governors, said the chief con-
cerns are possible interference
with the radio signal and a liabil-
ity of exposing families to possi-
ble radiation.
"We certainly understand the
need for the housing, but we saw
some potential problems with
our ability to operate the site,"
O'Connell said. "Not withstand-
ing the fact that, strictly speak-
ing, the standards for exposure to
the electromagnetic field are not
in excess of acceptable levels, we
are still concerned about safety,
just as we are on our other sites."
The four radio towers located
on 38 acres in the Sombrero sub-
division transmit a constant
medium-frequency AM broad-
cast. O'Connell wouldn't say
how much power the system uses
for security purposes.
The site is bordered by a resi-
dential neighborhood on one
side. Coast Guard officials held
public meetings in the fall of last
year and came to a basic consen-

sus with neighbors over the
plans, including improving road
access and leaving the mangrove
fringe in tact.
O'Connell said the Coast
Guard recently asked the Board
of Governors to reconsider the
decision, but that would be high-
ly unlikely.
The Coast Guard now has to
consider other ways to spend $10
million in allocated housing
funds, said Lt. Cmdr. John Lang
of the Coast Guard Civil
Engineering Department in
"Our consultant will be look-
ing at other alternatives, which
will be to either buy land, buy
existing houses or redevelop cur-
rently owned Coast Guard prop-
erty," Lang said.
"Our overarching strategy to
build family houses in the Keys
definitely exists, and we have the
funds to do it."
Lang said Coast Guard
Station Marathon near mile
marker 48 holds only one officer
residence and a few units for
traveling officers, but there is not
enough room for the type of
housing proposed.
The Coast Guard currently
locates apartments, homes and
other housing for the 40 or so
officers and their families sta-
tioned in Marathon.
Lang said issues with obtain-
ing new building permits through
the Keys' rate-of-growth-ordi-
nance allocation system might
make building new housing
"ROGO has been a constrain-
ing factor on land acquisition,
but still may drive us into buying
existing homes," Lang said.
"That was part of the reason the
federal land on Sombrero Key
was so attractive. It's still our
preferred plan, and we haven't
given up hope yet."

Bloom impacts dredge plans

Experts consider
if it would cause
more damage
Senior Staff Writer

The persistent algae bloom in
northeast Florida Bay could
change plans to remove the fill
that created the Lake Surprise
Causeway in Key Largo.
Uncertainty about what.
caused the bloom of blue-green
algae worried Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary advi-
sors at the sanctuary panel's Feb.
20 meeting in Marathon.
"The Sanctuary Advisory
Council and staff want to take
another look at the causeway
removal to see if this is some-
thing we want to see go forward,"
said Cheva Heck, sanctuary com-
munications manager.
Meeting that brings together
experts from several state and
federal agencies is being planned.
At the Feb. 20 sanctuary ses-
sion, experts told the panel that a
combination of factors likely trig-
gered the algae bloom.
Those factors include the busy
2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons,
along with construction work to
widen U.S. 1 between Key Largo
and Florida City.
Scientists from the Miami-
Dade Department of
Environmental Resource
Management, the Environmental
Research Center at Florida
International University, and the
NOAA Meteorological
Laboratory spoke at the Feb. 20
"They all said essentially the
same thing, that the bloom cannot
be entirely attributed to just hurri-
canes, or just the dredging
alone," Heck said.
Massive flows of freshwater
into the brackish bay likely
played a major role, but nutrients
and phosphorous put into the bay
by the construction work may be
keeping the bloom alive, the sci-
entists related. ,-

That led to the suggestion that
a new look should be taken at the
plan to dredge the causeway laid
through Lake Surprise by Henry.
Flagler's railroad crews.
"This is something that every-
one believed would be beneficial
in terms of restoring the water
flows," Heck said. "But the
Florida Bay modeling informa-
tion now is more than a decade
Under one speculative sce-
nario, massive dredging might do
more harm than good if it triggers
"an ecological phase change"
where the environment adapts to
unusual conditions such as the
algae bloom so that it
becomes the natural state.
The blue-green algae is not
toxic itself, but density of the

growth has blocked out sunlight
over large areas of northeast
Florida Bay, causing seagrass
die-offs and affecting fishing.
The scientists reported that the
overall scale of the bloom has
diminished, but concentrations of
the algae remain high in some
"That area does not have good
water circulation, and we have
not had cold snaps that could help
halt the bloom," Heck said.
In other matters, the
Sanctuary Advisory Council
called for a special meeting on a
proposed Florida Power and
Light coal-burning generator
near Lake Okeechobee.
Sanctuary advisors are con-
cerned the plant could lead to
increased carbon-dioxide emis-
sions that could harm the coral
reef through sea-level rise.

23 Cuban migrants
land at Higgs Beach

Twenty-three Cuban migrants
came ashore at Higgs Beach in
Key West around 1:30 a.m.
Tuesday. The group consisted of
mostly adults, with two children
All of the boaters were appar-
ently in good health. One of the
Cuban's relatives who apparent-
ly lives in Hialeah was already

on the beach with milk for the
babies and drinks and food for
the adults by the time Key West
police arrived at the scene.
The boat appeared to be the
hull of a sailboat, without the
mast, according to police
spokeswoman Christie Phillips.
The Cubans were taken to the
Monroe County Detention
Center for holding, where they
will be processed and transport-
ed by the U.S. Customs Border

Tier system again under state scrutiny


It may.have seemed a good
idea-at the time, but initiating a
land-mapping for allotting build-
ing permits continues to hit
Last week, the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs issued a report outlining
a number of objections to pro-
posed changes in the Monroe
County comprehensive plan that
would create the so-called tier
"This is a very large and com-
plex amendment," DCA repre-
sentative Clark Turner told the

County Commission during its
regular monthly meeting in Key
Largo on Feb. 21. "It is fraught
with opportunities for omissions
and errors."
In December the commission
approved changes in the land
plan that mirror land develop-
ment regulations already
approved last March.
Two environmental organiza-
tions, Last Stand and the Florida
Keys Citizens Coalition, chal-
lenged those regulations before
an administrative judge, charg-
ing the county is not doing
enough to protect sensitive local

The challenge is set to be
heard by Administrative Judge
Shelby Highsmith beginning
March 14.
The county took more than
two years and held seven public
meetings to craft the tier system.
It defines three land classifi-
cations aimed at protecting the
most sensitive habitat from
development while encouraging
future development in areas that
are already developed or scari-
fied. In addition, the land-plan
amendment includes a set of
maps that shows what properties
fall within a particular tier.
Among the objections issued

by DCA are 147 changes to the
tier maps, changes made after the
maps were drawn up. Of 300
applicants who claimed their
properties were misclassified,
147 were approved for change
by a special master.
In a letter to county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro, DCA rejected
all 147 changes "due to the lack
of sufficient data and analysis."
Despite the state's objections,
Clark told the County
Commission none of the prob-
lems are insurmountable.
"The objections are not the
fault of anyone," Clark said. "I
think the county has done a very
good job in this submission."
He said the state's review
focuses on the county's changes
being consistent with state laws.
"This happens all the time,"
he said. "The objection is not
something that's final, it doesn't
mean [the county] is out of com-
pliance. This is just an opportu-

nity to make corrections."
The county has until June 19
to address each of the errors or
omissions in the proposed land-
plan amendments. In the mean-
time, no building permits will be
held up, according to acting
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette. Though there was
a moratorium on issuing new
permits after the land develop-
ment regulations were chal-
lenged, it has since expired.
DCA prompted the county to
add the tier system to its land
plan to strengthen it. Changes in
regulations are relatively easy,
while changes to the land plan
require public hearings and
eventual approval on a state
The tier system would replace
the rate-of-growth ordinance,
which determines how many
building permits can be issued
annually based upon hurricane
evacuation times.

Hettinger wrote, "all new hous-
ing units constructed during the
period were for second-home
use, and an additional 2,182
existing units were converted to
second-home use."
The number of rental units
dropped by nearly 3,000 from
2000 to 2005, from more than
13,000 to barely more than
10,000. According to Hettinger's
data, close to one third of Keys
homes are used as second
homes. The data was compiled
through the 2000 census and the
2005 American Community
Survey conducted by the U.S.
Census Bureau.
Hettinger has the Wyndham
Financial Group and consults
with communities all over the
nation regarding workforce
housing. Last fall the task force
considered, and then rejected, a
proposal by Hettinger to draft a
local plan for dealing with the
housing crisis.
Monroe County Planning
Commissioner Donna Windle is
a non-voting member of the task
force. She says rising homeown-
er costs, including taxes and
skyrocketing wind insurance
rates, have made home owner-
ship less attractive.
However, those same influ-
ences are often passed on to ten-
ants, raising rents to well beyond
affordability.. - -



Despite a push early in this
decade to explore affordable
home ownership, rentals may be
the choice of many Keys resi-
The Monroe County
Affordable Housing Task Force
will likely explore the question
of rentals when it convenes at
9:30 a.m. Thursday at Key
Colony Beach City Hall.
In an e-mail sent last week to
the task force, attorney Jerry
Coleman, the county's housing
consultant, acknowledged the
focus of workforce housing
might be shifting.
"Rentals have not been ade-
quately dealt with is what I'm
hearing from the public too," he
wrote. "There is an institutional
and societal bias to home-own-
ership opportunities here in the
Keys which I think may be 30
years toolate of a focus...."
According to an analysis
based on census data compiled
by affordable-housing expert
William Hettinger, the number
of renter-occupied housing units
decreased by 21.6 percent
between 2000 and 2005.
During that same time period,
the total number of housing units
increased by 2.5 percent, and the
number of second homes
increased by 27.6 percent.

Just plug

and play


allow connection of an exposed
hard drive to a USB port.
In a simple plug-and-play
manner, data can be accessed
from any 2.5-inch, 3.5-inch or
5.25-inch hard drive.
When users upgrade their
computers with a higher-capaci-
ty hard drive, the old drives
often end up just sitting in a
desk drawer.
Now the data from those
drives is easy to recover: Just
use the adapter to connect the
drive and a USB port on your
computer. The hard drive will
then mount like any other, and
the necessary data can be trans-
ferred efficiently.
Smaller hard drives can also
be used to back up data. This
$24.99 adapter makes it easy to
use multiple older drives to back
up important data.

The impact-resistant suits for
the MacBook and the MacBook

in so that the airflow needed for
cooling is not impeded. The lin-

Friday victory

for b'ball team
Keynoter Contributor

Pace, the storied rival, was in
town, and that alone was enough
to quicken the pulses of Key
West fans and send them hyped
up and in large numbers to Rex
Weech Field Friday night.
What transpired before the
large crowd's appreciative eyes
was a splendid pitching duel,
one -in which Conch right-han-
der Daniel Foltz and the equally
hard-throwing Monsignor Pace
lefty Chris Hernandez show-
cased their considerable talents.
Foltz won the duel and the
Conchs won the game, 3-1, in
the District 16-4A opener.
It appeared that Pace would
score first. The Spartans had the
bases loaded in the fourth inning
with one out, but Foltz got the
next two batters, one on a strike-
out, one on a ground ball.
It was a defining moment, not
lost on coach Miguel Menendez.

"His composure was helped
by the fact that he believes he's
the best pitcher in the state,"
Menendez said. "He wants to
prove how good he is."
Foltz, who had 10 strikeouts,
was being matched pitch for
pitch by Hernandez, who had six
strikeouts .through the first four
But in the fifth, the Conchs
broke through. Senior catcher
Louis Pazo led off with a double
and was replaced by courtesy
runner Alfred Rahming.
Artie Grizzle then singled to
left. Rahming tore around third
base but slipped and fell. As he
scrambled back to the bag, the
shortstop made a wild throw.
Rahming, a speedster on the
football team, changed direc-
tions and sped across the plate to
put the Conchs ahead, 1-0.
After Foltz set the side down
in order in the sixth, the Conchs
pushed across two runs in their
half of the inning.
With one out, freshman
Michael Arencibia singled and

Palmer Trinity
the next big test
for the Dolphins

The Marathon High School
baseball team will attempt to fol-
low its breakout 11-4 win over
Westwood Christian last week
with a crucial District 16-2A
match-up against Palmer Trinity
at 4 p.m. today in Miami.
Marathon coach Luis Leal
said a win today would boost the
2-2 Dolphins' confidence head-
ing into another big game against
Coral Shores Monday.
"Apparently, Palmer's pitch-
ing staff is pretty good and they

are decent in the field," Leal said.
"It looks like we are going to face
a team maybe a little bit better
than Westwood, so a win.would
be great."

five strikeouts and junior slugger
Sean O'Connor ripped two
homers and five RBI with a 5-

Lady Conchs open district play

Softball team
is coming off
a pair of wins
Keynoter Contributor

Fresh from a two-game series
sweep of a touring Texas team,
the Key West High School soft-
ball team plays its District 16-4A
opener at 4 p.m. today against
visiting St. Brendan.
The Conchs emerged from a
hitting drought and defeated
Corsicana, a school in arid coun-
try southeast of Dallas, 8-7 and
16-10, last weekend to improve
their record to 4-3.
Friday night's game unfolded
languidly at the Conchs' Back
Yard. The ballpark, though far
from a cow pasture, evoked a
country feel with its biting bugs
and woodsy borders. Smoke
from the concession-stand grill
lingered over the outfield.
Ashley Henriquez started on
the mound for the Conchs and
overcame early wildness.
Corsicana was ahead, 2-0, and
threatening to score more when
she recorded a bases-loaded
She. loped happily to the
dugout where coach Dave
Gootee greeted her with, "Good

The Conch bats, however,
were as tepid as they had been in
recent games, which didn't go
over well with assistant coach
Frank Ratcliff. "Attack the ball,"
he yelled, as the Conchs came to
bat in the third.
The team took his advice.
Victoria Commander singled
to center field and scored on a
hard double by Henriquez that
cut the lead to 2-1. Then in the
fourth, shortstop Heather
Palladino confidently tripled
with the bases load to cap a four-
run inning and put the Conchs
ahead, 5-2.
Henriquez overpowered
Corsicana until the sixth when
the Tigers scored four runs to
take a 6-5 lead.
The Conchs came back in
their half of the inning to tie the
score, 6-6, but Corsicana went
ahead again, 7-6, in the seventh
and was three outs from victory.
Moments later, a bases-loaded
single by sophomore Jianna
Hemandez scored the tying and
winning runs, and sent the play-
ers up to Rex Weech Field to see
the Key West-Pace baseball
game. They filed in, happily
spreading the news, orange dirt

stole second. He went to third on
an infield hit by sophomore
Frankie Ratcliff and scored on a.
single by his brother, junior
Santi Arencibia.
Pazo followed with a fly-ball
single that dropped just inside
the line in right and scored
Ratcliff for a 3-0 lead.
"Louie Pazo is one of the best
leaders I have been around,"
Menendez said. "He wants to
win and the way he and the other
older guys [Grizzle and Santi
Arencibia] have taken our young
guys under their wings has been
Pace did not go down tamely
in the seventh.
A double and a single cut the
lead to 3-1, and the Spartans had
a runner on third with one out.
But Foltz got the next batter on a
called strike a pitch the Pace
coaches vehemently believed
was way high and then
induced the following batter to
pop up, end the game and send

the fans home happy.
"The crowd was big,"
Menendez said. "I think our kids
feed off a good rowdy crowd.
The fans really give us a tremen-
dous home-field advantage." '

Key West 10, Sagemont 0
The Conchs came back on
Saturday night and won behind
the pitching of Blayne Weller,
who threw four scoreless
innings. Freshman Nolan
Thomas hit first home run, a
shot that cleared the right-field
fence, a rare occurrence at Rex
Weech Field.
Pazo continued his hot hitting
with a two-run triple and
Michael Arencibia had two hits.
"I actually thought we were
flat, but we responded late in the
game," Menendez said. The
Conchs scored six runs in the
fifth inning.
Key West will take a 5-2
record into Friday night's home
game against American
Heritage. The same teams will

played yet another game against
the Key West JV.
The Tigers got off to a 4-0
start but Key West came right
back with three runs, the last two
on a double by Kristen Babich,
who was rewarded with a hug
from her dad-Matt.

In the sixth

inning, the

Conchs left

10 runs.

The error-plagued game
remained close and even though
Corsicana had a 7-6 lead after
five and a half innings, the Tigers
seemed to be wilting in the sun.
Prone to indecision, they were
also physically overmatched and
looked vulnerable in bare-shoul-
dered gold uniforms and blue
knee socks. The Conchs, in con-
trast, wore gray uniforms with
the pinstripes on their long pants
accentuating the height of tall
players such as Henriquez,
Babich and the talented freshman
right fielder Lauren Wells.
In the sixth, inning, the

Conchs left Corsicana dazed
when they scored 10 runs, teeing
off as if it were batting practice.
Wells, with a single, and Trish
Wise, with a double, had two
RBIs in the inning.
Lindsay Yochum gave up
three runs in the top of the sev-
enth but hung on for the com-
plete-game victory.
Runs may be harder to come
by today. St. Brendan's likely
pitcher will be Tamara Hidalgo,
who baffled the Conchs last sea-
son in a Sabers' victory at the
Back Yard.

Re: IRS Legal and Display Ads

Dear Joanne,

I just wanted to write to you and express my sincere appreciation for the quality customer
service that you provide to me in the advertising of the recent Internal Revenue Service
service that You Pro the Florida Keys.
public auction sale that I conducted in the Floida Keys.
I've been selling property all over the SE United States for the past 5 years and I rely
heavily on local newspapers for publication of both legal ads and display or classified ads.
There are strict statutory requirements for the legal ad that must be met, so I am highly
dependent upon the newspapers that I deal with to publish the ads accurately and timely.
In addition, I am required to secure documentation of the publication of the legal ad and
supporting documentation regarding the display and classified ads. These requirements
are often troubling to the publishers, and it seems I spend far too much time with follow-up
calls and e-mails requesting receipts and tear sheets and affidavits and the like. Such was
not the case at all with you and the Keynoter. You not only were a great help to me in
setting up the ads so that I got maximum exposure for the money, but you also provided
me with everything that I needed for my records on a timely basis. I'm sure that thicust is how
you do business all the time, but for me it was highlyunusual and just exemplary customer
service and I thank you.

Lady Dolphins fall to Carrollton

Tennis girls
are close but
no wins Friday

Marathon's top varsity tennis
girls looked strong in close
matches against a talented
Carrollton squad Friday, but it
still wasn't enough to affect the 7-
0 shutout loss.
The Lady Dolphins move to 0-
2 on the season after a season-
opening loss at Key West. The
boys' team stands at 0-1 and did
not play against all-girls school
The Marathon girls didn't
look like the underdogs against
Carrollton in the No. 1 match, as
the Dolphins' Gabby Brossard
led early in her match.
However, the Carrollton play-
er brought the match back to 7-7
before winning two straight
games to close out with the 9-7
"Gabby was upset over it, as it
was a match she was in the whole
way," Dolphins coach Mark
Hooper said. "No. 1 is always the
hardest position on the team,
because you are always playing
the very best players. Still,
Gabby's looking forward to the
Marathon faces Carrollton
again in Miami at 2 p.m. this
At the No. 2 position,
Marathon's Angela Farello was
up 6-0 over her Carrollton oppo-

on the system."
Hooper said it's still a young
season, and he hopes his girls
continue to improve as they head
towards the much-awaited Conch
Cup tournament that feature
teams from Marathon, -Coral
Shores and Key West high
schools. Marathon was the run-
ner-up last year.

Marathon's Kelsey Wonderlin returns a shot by a Carrollton
opponent in her 8-0 loss Friday. The Lady Dolphins fell, 7-0.

nent before getting swept in eight
straight games to lose 8-6.
"We're going to work on that
in practice, about not being afraid
to win," Hooper said. "For six
games, she played great. But
some unforced errors and the
other girls starting coming back."
Marathon No. 3 player Kelsey
Wonderlin was simply over-
matched in her 8-0 loss, Hooper
said, but played smart for being
an eighth-grader.
No. 4 Annabelle Walker lost
8-1 and No. 5 Emily Bradshaw
fell 8-1.

In doubles, the No. 1 team of
Brossard and Farello lost 6-2, as
did the No. 2 team of Wonderlin
and Walker.
"Both of our doubles teams I
think are matched well, and they
have the right players in the right
positions," Hooper said. "This is
still new to them, playing dou-
bles, and it will take time to work

.'g briefs

Shell sail contest
starts on Friday

The Leon Shell Memorial
Sailfish Tournament, set for
Friday through Sunday, in
Key Colony Beach, expands
from one to two full days of
sailfishing and offers a
$20,000 purse.
The winning boat is to
receive a grand prize of
$15,000 cash, with first and
second runners-up taking
home $1,000 and $500.
respectively. Scoring is
based on the total number of'
sailfish released.
Anglers who catch the
biggest wahoo, dolphin,
kingfish and tuna take home
$250 in prize honey.
The tournament is named
for the late Capt. Leon Shell,
best known as the inventor
of the Leon Lure, an artifi-
cial lure widely regarded as
one of the best smoker or
bubble-creating lures ever
The beneficiary of the
event is Hospice of the
Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse
Association. Annual pro-
ceeds have grown from a
meager $500 the first year to
$10,000 last year. In total,
nearly $50,000 has been con-
tributed to Hospice.
Prompting the event was
Shell's affliction with cancer,
which took his life in 1997.
"I couldn't have done it
without Hospice services,"
his widow Lois recalls.
A $1,000 academic schol-
arship and an invitation to

Regs can be confusing

Err on the side
of caution when
taking's prohibited

If you've spent any time on
the waters of the Keys fishing,
there's a better-than-average
chance you've unwittingly bro-
ken the law.
Point in fact: Ever been way
out on a gulf wreck just to have
every snapper hooked eaten by a
jewfish? Then rig up your heavi-
est rod, drop down a bait and
hook him up? And after getting
him boat side, lip-gaff him and
pull him into the boat for a pic-
If I were a National Marine
Fisheries Service law officer, I
would have to cite you for two
Ever catch that over-the-slot-
size snook of a lifetime and hold
him up out of the water for a
quick picture? Violation.
Been on an oceanside flat, see
a rolling tarpon approaching,
ready your fly rod or your crab on
a spinning rod, make the cast and
hook him up? Ever pull that same
tarpon over the gunwale to meas-
ure him and take a quick snap-
shot? Two violations (if you don't
have a tarpon tag aboard).
The latter two examples are
taking the true written definition
of the law to extremes, but the
first is a serious issue and would
hold up in court if it happened in
federal waters.
Let's start with the basics.
State and federal fishing regu-
lations differ slightly. Federal
waters start 3 miles from shore in
the Atlantic and 9 miles from
shore in the Gulf or Florida Bay.
NOAA Special Agent Ken
'. Blackburn supplied the exact
wording of federal regulations

Stand then
his inter-
tions: In
i10 addition to
y o t the general
a prohibi-
tions in
600.725 of
this chap-
ter, it is
Cal Sutphin for any per-
son to do
any, of the following: .
(k) Fish for, harvest or possess
a prohibited species or a limited-
harvest species in excess of its
limitation, sell or purchase such
species, fail to comply with
622.32 Prohibited and lim-
ited-harvest species:
(a) General. The harvest and
possession restrictions of this
section apply without regard to
whether the species is harvested
by a vessel operating under a
commercial vessel permit. The
operator of a vessel that fishes in
the [Exclusive Economic Zone, a
maritime designation,] is respon-
sible for the limit applicable to
that vessel.
(b) Prohibited species.
Prohibited species, by geographi-
cal area, are as follows:
(ii) Goliath grouper may not
be harvested or possessed in or
from the Gulf EEZ. (iii) Red
drum and Nassau grouper may
not be harvested or possessed in
or from the Gulf EEZ. Such fish
caught in the Gulf EEZ must be
released immediately with a min-
imum of harm.
(ii) Goliath grouper and
Nassau grouper may not be har-
vested or possessed in or from the
South Atlantic EEZ. Goliath

grouper and Nassau grouper
taken in the South Atlantic EEZ
incidentally by hook-and-line
must be released immediately by
cutting the line without removing
the fish from the water.
In other words, according to
Blackburn, "You cannot inten-
tionally target Goliath grouper,
Nassau grouper or any other pro-
hibited species in federal waters."
Florida regulations tend to be
more forgiving in their wording.
Florida Statute 68B says:
(3) The possession, purchase,
sale or exchange of any Nassau
grouper or goliath grouper is pro-
(6) "Harvest" means the
catching or taking of a fish by any
means whatsoever, followed by a
reduction of such fish to posses-
sion. Fish that are caught but
immediately returned to the water
free, alive and unharmed are not
"In addition, temporary pos-
session of a fish for the purpose
of measuring it to determine
compliance with the minimum
size requirements of this chapter
shall not constitute harvesting
such fish, provided that it is
measured immediately after tak-
ing, and immediately returned to
the water free, alive and
unharmed if undersize."
The extreme interpretation of
the federal law is that an angler
cannot intentionally target a fish
that is out of season or illegal to
posses, but if you want to be a
conscientious angler, do the right

The yellowtail is really

turned on out there

But first, find
out how to safely
make the trip out
Two months into the new year,
it's already been an interesting
year for fishing.
We've had a few cool spells
but overall, it has been quite
warm. There have been the windy
days, as well, but on average, we
have been quite blessed with
more calm, or relatively calm,
days than normal so far.
The fish have been around in
their usual areas in good num-
bers, with the occasional move
that stumped us from day to day.
Bait has been, on average, plenti-
ful enough.
Now is the time to hit them
heavy, as March is known for
windy days, when you cannot get
out for long spells at a time.
What's been good all year and
is continuing is the yellowtail
fishing all along the reef line. It
will vary from time to time as to
the best depth, but it has been by
far the hottest fishery.
The average size of fish
brought in has been larger than
normal for this time of year. It has
actually made yellowtail fishing,
normally one of the most frustrat-
ing and aggravating types of fish-
ing, very enjoyable.
What has been quite unusual
has been the large numbers and
size of fish that have been in rel-
atively shallow waters, from 35
to 50 feet. This has given many
anglers that are not that good at
the art of yellowtail fishing an
advantage, which you gain when
you don't have to work them in
deep waters.
There are many types of
attractants used in addition to
chum to raise the fish from the
bottom into your chum line. The
best has to be glass minnows.
These tiny fish are not that
good for bait, as they are so tiny;
and once frozen, they are usually
too soft to keep on a hook.
However, those with patience,
not to mention a tiny hook, can
thread several of them on for a

A better bait that looks similar

inches in size. It's much easier to

larger fish to attack it.

near the
which is
usua lly
ed along
the edge,
which is
the drop-
off section
of the reef
line where
it falls from
35 feet of

water downward to more than
120 feet deep, is another area that
has been very good.
The patch reefs have been
alive with a variety of fish from
yellowtail to mangrove and mut-
ton snappers, a variety of grouper
species, hogfish and many more.
These areas have also been cov-
ered time to time by a blanket of
other species that stay in the
water column between the bot-
tom and the surface.

These include mackerels,
jacks and others. These patch
reefs that are usually in depths of
18 to 35 feet do not normally
hold the big numbers of fish, but
have been known to provide a
bounty on occasion.
The patch reefs have been
more than adequate for finding at
least one keeper grouper, enough
of a variety of snappers to pro-
vide a very nice dinner and
enough action to keep everyone
I don't recommend you plan
to spend the entire day on one
patch reef, but rather hit a good
number of them to average out a
good catch. Like anywhere else,
the patch reefs are not all loaded
with what you are after, but you
may find that they have more to
offer than you had imagined.
With the depths you will be
fishing and the fact that you can
use your eyes, a fairly accurate
fish finder, to find the coral patch

Yellowtail good now

SUTPHIN / From 28
"I've had enough." Then the
party's ruined for everybody. The
laws are already in place to have
that done, and quite easily to-
Doing the right thing consists
of leaving the fish in the water.
According to Lisa
Ockelmann-Lobello, with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
Snook Program, fish live in zero
buoyancy. To remove them from
their environment means putting
added stress on their internal
Also, hanging a fish by a lip
gaff or Boca-grip and then hang-
ing it vertically with all of its
weight supported by its jaw for a
picture can also cause major
damage. This is even more so for
snook and tarpon, which rely on a
suction-type vacuum to eat.
In addition, the fight time,
should be a short as possible
when playing a fish. A lot of

exceptionally large fish can die of
exhaustion quite easily, especial-
ly if the water temperature is
above 80 degrees. Longer fight
times could also leave the fish
vulnerable to predators like
sharks and barracuda.
If possible, fight the fish on
heavier tackle to quicken those
long fights.
The best rule of thumb would
be to leave the fish in the water. If
the hook cannot be removed eas-
ily, then cut the leader as close to
the hook as possible. If the fish is
lethargic and swimming on its
side or sinking when released,
gently grab the lower jaw (for
toothy critters, a lip gaff should
be fine) and pull the fish forward
to force waters through its gills.
Do not pull the fish backward;
doing so could drown the fish.
If this process lasts an hour,
again, it's the right thing to do.
And most importantly, wet your
hand before touching. The mucus
fish have coating on their bodies
designed to protect them from
bacteria and infection.

NAVARRO / From 29
reefs, you will find it is an effi-
cient way to fish.
The most consistent venue
the past weeks has been the bay.
It's usually one-third to a quarter
as rough as the ocean on windy
days in the open bay and if you
get in the vicinity of the numer-
ous flats, banks and islands, you
will be sitting in less than a few-
inch chop while in 20-knot
It is these numerous banks,
flats and islands that just scare
the hell out of most boaters that
are not used to transgressing the
What you can catch, how to
catch it and most importantly
how to make a round trip with-
out incident will be the main
topic of this week's free fishing
seminar, this Thursday in our
outdoor amphitheater at our
Marine Educational Center at
mile marker 50 bayside. It starts
at 6 p.m. sharp and is open to

The bay can provide the
fairest of fair-weather sailors
with a comfortable day of fish-
ing along with a wide variety of
species that not only challenge
the angler but also provides
them with a good box full of fish
to feast on.
One tip about working
around in the bay I can give is
very similar to when you first
started driving a car on your
own. Remember when you said,
"OK, let's see what this baby
can do!"
Well, having that attitude in a
boat in the bay will almost sure-
ly require you to take along a
bonefish rod so you won't look
so silly while your boat is 100
feet up on a flat sitting on its
side. You can always say with
your light rod in hand that you
meant to do that.
