Hospitals, others
prepare for change
earlier than usual
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Time has come for change
- earlier than many expect.
Daylight Saving Time takes
effect at 2 a.m. Sunday, three
weeks earlier than the early-
April date that Americans have
come to expect.
Congress in 2005 passed the
Energy Policy Act, which puts
Daylight Saving Time in effect
for seven of the year's 12
months, beginning Sunday.
Clocks will move ahead one
hour this weekend, meaning
the sun will rise an hour later.
For those heading to
Mallory Square, the same goes


for sunset.
Standard time re'Lumes Nov.
4, rather than the tamiliar end-
of-October change.
Computers should be'fine
with the new time, say local
experts, but some may require
manual adjustment.
"There shouldn't be any big
problems," said Peter Spaniak
of Keys Technology in Key
West. "Just about everyone has
a home computer now, and
they know how to make the
adjustment."
No one is predicting mass
computer chaos, as some fore-
cast for the Y2K scenario in
2000. It never happened.
"Nothing is going to happen
this week that will harm your
home computer," Spaniak said.

communication among him-
self, county staff and the
County Commission.
Today, he keeps that prom-
ise, holding the first of what is

issues before the commission
meets for its actual monthly
business meeting, where it can
vote on issues. It cannot vote at

Today's workshop begins at

Portability
of exemptions
on the table
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Property owners and apprais-
ers throughout the state are going
to keep a close eye on the Florida
Legislature this session.
The 2007 session opened
Tuesday and several bills are
aimed at easing the tax burden for
property owners.
"There's a lot of different


ways to try and do this thing,"
Monroe County Property
Appraiser Ervin Higgs said.
"Everybody seems to be trying to
present how it should be accom-
plished."
Escalating property values the
past several years have left a lot
of property owners holding the
bag when it comes tax time, and
legislators will explore ways to
ease that burden. Proposals
include increases in the statewide
homestead exemption and the

sighed upon
learning that
the time
change is
nearly here
and now.
"It affects


just about everything we do,"
Grimes said. "We've got a
whole lot of timers we have to
reset. And it gives us more
daylight, so we'll be staying
out working even later."
Hardee, a parent, said she
was somewhat concerned
heading to school early when it


may still be on the pre-dawn
side, but concluded it's proba-
bly for the best.
"We get more hours of sun-
light so it gives the kids more
time to get out and play after
school," she said. "It's good
for the kids."
The time change will mean
that Daylight Saving Time will
be in effect for seven months
of the year, with Standard
Time the standard for only
five.
-This won't be the first time
Congress has altered time.
Daylight Saving Time was
extended in World War II, and
again after the oil embargo in
1973. Daylight Saving Time
ran for 10 months in 1974 and
eight months in 1975.
By then, oil was flowing
again, and residents of agricul-
tural states were tired of long,
dark mornings.
One version of the 2005
Energy Policy Act which
causes time to change this
week originally increased
Daylight Saving Time by two
months, one in the spring and
one in the fall. That version
was changed.

updated their PC software
should not even miss a beat,
experts said.
At South Florida hospitals,
technicians will keep an eye on
medical equipment tied to the
clock, such as patient moni-
tors.
"Most of our computers are
networked to a database server,
and they should all change
over with no problem," said
Lou Katchis, manager of bio-
medical engineering at South
Miami Hospital.
"The important thing is to
know which machines are not


linked, and which could be
affected," Katchis said. "We're
paying attention."
Much of the hospital's com-
puterized medical equipment is
less than a year old, he said,
and should already be pro-
grammed for the new schedule.
Travelers need to pay atten-
tion, particularly for flights
scheduled Sunday.
Keith Myers, a winter visi-
tor from London, said he'll
have to change clocks again
when he gets home, and still
again when England changes
its time in late March.
"It does affect the length of
the days in the northern lati-
tudes more than it does this


close to the equator," he said.
Myers, 75, said he remem-
bers when Britain adopted a
two-hour time change in World
War II called Double Summer
Time (Daylight Saving Time
remained in effect through the
winter).
"It gave you maximum day-
light but the farmers weren't
always too happy about it,"
Myers said.
Fishermen are farmers of
the sea, but should not be too
affected by the new time-
change schedule.
"I don't see how it could
affect fishing," said Chris
Pizza from the World Class
Angler in Marathon.

Two boaters rescued
in Florida Bay

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued
two men in Florida Bay approxi-
mately 20 miles south of
Everglades City after receiving
an alert from an emergency
transponder at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday,
Guard officials said.
After receiving the report, the


Coast Guard launched a rescue
helicopter from Coast Guard Air
Station Miami. The crew located
the two men in distress around
7:50 a.m.
The helicopter's rescue swim-
mer was deployed and conducted
a health check of the men before
hoisting them. The two uninjured
men were taken to Florida Keys
Marathon Airport and released.
According to the men, their


vessel lost its mast in rough
weather Monday evening, but
they rode out the adverse weather
until sunrise today when they
decided to set off their
Emergency Position Indicating
Radio Beacon.
"This demonstrates the impor-
tance of proper safety equipment,
especially an EPIRB," said Luis
Diaz, the Seventh Coast Guard
District's deputy spokesman.


Guard crew rescues
kayakers off Key West

The U.S. Coast Guard res-
cued two people after their
kayak capsized about 100
yards north of Key' West at
8:25 a.m. Monday, according
to the Guard.
Crew on the sailboat
Perseverance 2 called rescue
coordinators at Sector Key
West to report that Sean
Lavin and Taloria Smith, both
from Key West, had gone in
the water and required imme-
diate help. Neither was wear-
ing life jackets.
A crew from Coast Guard
Station Key West found the
pair and their ka. ak. and took
them back to ,their sailboat
Leper Lee at the Fleming Key
mooring field. Both were
reported to be in good condi-
tion.

ability to take that exemption
with you when you move.
"After Hurricane Wilma, a lot
of people in Monroe County
decided to sell and go some-
where else," Higgs said. "When
they went to different counties,
they found the taxes weren't as
low as what they thought. We
had high property values but our
millage rate was low."
The so-called portability bill
would allow people to transfer
their homestead exemption to
their new home.
Currently homeowners are
allowed a $25,000 tax exemption
on their primary residence in
Florida. Another proposal would
double that exemption.
Another bill would allow
increased exemptions for sen-
iors. Yet another would keep tax
assessments from increasing
when property owners upgrade
to prevent hurricane damage.
"Part of my concern is pass-
ing the burden off," Higgs said.
"Where is the money going to
come from that it will take to
give this relief to people? Will it
mean higher millage rates? More
taxes?"
The impact of increasing
homestead exemptions could be
particularly strong in the Keys.
"A lot of homes are second
homes and vacation properties,"
said Brian Schmitt, broker of
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real
Estate. "Those folks are going to
carry the burden, as are the com-
mercial interests."
Critics of the homestead
exemption and the state's Save
Our Homes constitutional
amendment, which limits annual
property assessments for primary
homes to 3 percent, say business-
es and second-home owners foot
the bill.
In addition, Higgs says there
are administrative costs hidden
in any change.
"They have to know what
kind of impact it will cause on 67
counties across the state," Higgs
said. "If something's done it will
have to cost money."
Though they loom large,
taxes aren't the only thing on the
table in Tallahassee. Other bills
under consideration include:
A bill that would require
gambling vessels to register with
the state Department of
Environmental Protection effort
to better control illegal dumping.
A bill requiring all
dwellings be'equipped with car-
bon monoxide and smoke detec-
tors.

Pigeon Key getting new director


Mearns stepping
down as island's
troubles continue
By CAMMY CLARK
cclark@miamiherald.com

Tour guide Dee Pitts drives
the Henry Express trolley along
the old Seven Mile Bridge, trans-
porting visitors from Marathon to
the tiny island of Pigeon Key
dotted with wooden buildings
that used to house workers of
Henry Flagler's Florida East
Coast Railway.
Pitts tells of hearty men who
worked for 15 cents an hour and
poured kerosene on their skin to
ward off disease-carrying mos-
quitoes.
Talk of modifying the lease
that governs use of island has
alarmed conservationists who
fear a shift could lead to an
explosion of commercial devel-
opment even to waterfront
condos and tourist hotels.
The issue emerged to the fore-
front when the Pigeon Key
Foundation, the nonprofit group


that runs the island, was cited for
code violations.
-Foundation Executive
Director Marjie Meams recently
announced she is stepping down
after serving since 2005, but only
so she can concentrate on the
island's big issues.
"I went in as interim execu-
tive director with the idea of re-
establishing the community's
relationship with Pigeon Key,
which was broken," Mearns said.
"I have so many things to do,
including ensuring the founda-
tion's position on the island."
She said she will rejoin the
board of directors.
Handling the director duties
will be Jeff Shows, who has run
manatee tours in his hometown
of Crystal River and has also led
education trips to Pigeon Key.
Meams said Shows is a good
fit for the foundation and "full of
energy," although he will have
tough challenges to face in the
coming months.
Recent anonymous com-
plaints led to citing of the foun-
dation with 43 code violations by


the county fire marshal and seven
violations by the state
Department of Environmental
Protection.
Mears is trying to rectify the
violations and has been working
for months on acquiring sprin-
klers and a fire suppression sys-
tem.
Violations stemmed from two
diesel spills and improper
cleanup. The foundation faces up
to $18,500 in fines and about a
$40,000 cleanup bill.
In January, the county attor-
ney demanded old documents,
including proof the foundation
had complied with a master plan
that was part of its 30-year lease.
The problems only added to
the 4.5-acre island's ongoing
issue: dealing with the imminent
closure of the 2.2-mile portion of
the crumbling old bridge for
repairs that will take three years
and cost more than $33 million.
During that time, the only way
to transport people and supplies
to the island will be by ferry.
Mears said her group was
expecting to coordinate the ferry
service with state funding, but
instead the county solicited bids


- which include companies out
to make a profit.
The series of events alarmed
Pigeon Key fans. Was it a con-
certed effort to break the founda-
tion's lease in order to develop
the island?
, County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro fueled the concern at
January's commission meeting,
saying: "This is a multimillion-
dollar piece of property, water-
front property that we can do so
much more with. It is our fault
that the county has neglected
developing the island to get
something out there for the pub-
lic."
The lease, which runs through
2023, was placed on the
February county commission
agenda. Discussion was tabled
until the March meeting.
"We are very concerned about
a change of usage," said the
World Wildlife Fund's Debra
Harrison, a former Pigeon Key
Foundation board member. "If
the goal is to convert public land
into the best money-making
machine, we'd have Las Vegas in
the Keys."
Architect Bert Bender, who


worked on the restoration of
Pigeon Key's buildings, said:
"Pigeon Key and the old Seven
Mile Bridge tells the story of one
of the most significant events in
our country. Without them, the
Florida Keys as we know them
would never exist."
Pigeon Key was placed on the
National Register of Historic
Places in 1990. It also was
declared a historic and cultural
landmark by the county commis-
sion in 1993.
But that's little protection
against a change in usage or
ownership, according to George
Born, executive director of the
Historic Florida Keys
Foundation.
Di Gennaro says he is not try-
ing to break the foundation's
lease, but he did say the island
could use updating to increase
tourism dollars. His suggestions
included relocating the Turtle
Hospital there.
The. foundation took over the
island in 1993, after the
University of Miami's lease for
research ended.

Spehar: Keep building


Marathon eyes
government site
for city hall
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The state has awarded
Monroe County more than $4
million in grants to revamp the
Marathon Government Center
or build a new one, but County
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
wants to be sure the county
holds onto the building.
"Four million dollars is not
enough to build [a new facili-
ty]," Spehar said.
On Feb. 26, county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro sent a letter
to the state Division of
Emergency Management
accepting two grants that can
be used either to improve the
county's emergency opera-
tions center that's the
Marathon Government Center
transformed when disasters
loom or build a new one.
More than $3.2 million is ear-
marked for hazard mitigation;
another $1 million would go
into the county's general fund.
Spehar- says she is con-
cerned the money might be
used to move the EOC to
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport while the county
hands the existing building to
the city of Marathon.
"There is no way that we
can build a new EOC and have
a government meeting room
with seating with that small
amount of money," Spehar
wrote in an e-mail to her fel-
low commissioners Friday. "In


briefs


my opinion ... we cannot
vacate the Government Center
at this time. We do not have
the funds, space, or the abili-
ty."
If the proposed cost of the
planned Murray E. Nelson
Government and Cultural
Center in Key Largo is any
indicator, a new EOC would
cost upward of $12 million.
Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto said he has been
talking with County
Administrator Tom Willi
about the possibility of the
city taking over the existing
building.
"When we spoke, I told him
we would be interested, if they
have people moving out,"
Puto said. "The meeting room
and EOC would remain [with
the county] until they get
theirs built. But we would
eventually need not a floor,
but the whole building."
The idea has been bandied
about since county officials
agreed to move county its
Growth Management and


Planning staffers out of the
Marathon building down to
the Lower Keys, a move that
would better serve the public,
they said.
Marathon has been eying
the government center for its
city hall. The Marathon City
Council unanimously passed a
resolution last week telling the
county that if it vacates the
building, the city would be
interested in negotiating for it.
In the meantime, Puto said,
the city is still looking at the
feasibility of building city hall
between 98th and 99th streets.
The city and county have
agreed to try to work together,
combining a new county
library with city hall.
According to early esti-
mates, the county has ear-
marked $2.7 million toward
the new library, and the city
somewhere in the realm of
$5.5 million, according to
Puto.
"Those are preliminary dol-
lars," he said. "We're still
looking at all of it, and the
cost will depend on where we
go."


Many topics on table


WORKSHOPS / From I

the commissioners concerning
the subjects on the agenda,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
said.
On tap for discussion:
Discussion of bids,
opened Feb. 21, for temporary
ferry service to Pigeon Key.
An update on construction
at Key West International
Airport.
An update on the county's
budget.
"My focus is going to be on
the budget report," Commis-
sioner George Neugent said,
"especially since that's what
brought this all about."
In January, County Clerk
Danny Kolhage sent a harsh
memo to Willi saying the coun-
ty could face a $1 million budg-
et shortfall in the general fund
by the end of the year if spend-
ing continues at its current
pace.
That criticism brought to a
head complaints against Willi,
engendering a Feb. 8 workshop
to discuss his competence. The
meeting ended in a 3-2 vote to


retain him as administrator and
an agreement to hold monthly
workshops to improve commu-
nications.
"This is going to give us an
opportunity to speak openly on
our issues and communication
back and forth," Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro said.
Commissioners will also
have the opportunity to bring
up their own topics, an aspect
Di Gennaro said will also help.
"I have things I don't know
what to do with," he said. "I get
proposals, like one I have here
from Boca Developers, that I
don't know what to do with.
We need to find out what we all
think about it."
Boca Developers owns the
Seahorse RV Park on Big Pine
Key and the former Rowell's
Marina in Key Largo.
Monday, the developer sent
a letter to Di Gennaro outlining
a proposal to transfer 80 mar-
ket-rate building rights from
Seahorse to the Key Largo
property with another 11 avail-
able for future use. In
exchange, the developer is
offering to give the Big Pine
property to the county.

Cinque, Bartus offer

voters the best choices

One man, one vote.
The principle is enshrined in the equal-protection clause of
the. U.S. Constitution and affirmed in several Supreme Court
decisions.
Which brings us to the Marathon City Council election and
voters' first try with at-large voting. Instead of having two or
three candidates vying by seat, Marathon voters face choices
among five candidates competing to win two seats.
Every voter gets to vote for two on the at-large ballot. The
two highest vote-getters win.
All five candidates bring their unique perspectives to the
table. Two of the five own businesses, one is a retired manu-
facturer, one recently left a nonprofit job, and one is a former
teacher and perennial candidate.
Voters paying attention got the chance to listen to all five
debate the issues at two public forums last week. During both
sessions, and in responses to questions published by this news-
paper and others, it became easier to see differences among the
five.
Both John Bartus and Marjie Mearns offer known voting
records as incumbents (Bartus sat out one year before deciding
he'd run for another term).
Mike Cinque and Don Vasil have service on the city Planning
Commission. Both have run for council seats before. So has
Bicycle Joanie Nelson.
The next council faces critical issues and voters should take
this election seriously. Sewer funding is woefully inadequate to
meet the state's 2010 deadline. The cost of a new city hall
keeps escalating. Getting building permits seems to be a log-
jam of hurdles that only the very rich can afford to overcome.
And promises to make affordable housing a top priority appear
to be mostly lip service so far.
Vasil blames developers for failing to deliver and campaigns
against city spending, but offers few concrete answers or solu-
tions. We find fault with Mearns' support for exclusionary zon-
ing for one neighborhood and waffling on other tough votes.
Cinque brings a depth of knowledge as a small-businessman
and owner of affordable trailer rentals. His service on the
Planning Commission would give him a head start. And he rep-
resents fresh eyes to bring well-grounded reality checks on the
next Council.
Bartus was an able leader during previous service, especially
as mayor, displaying an ability to find common ground where
others too often looked to divide. We also believe Bartus brings
needed experience on sewers and affordable housing, both of
which will sorely test the city and property owners in coming
years.
The next council needs to scale back big, expensive wish lists
and focus on deliverables that working folks can afford.
We recommend Cinque and Bartus as best able to deliver on
these critical goals.

Land stewards are failing
EDITOR:
SI have been a member of the Lower Keys
Wildfire Hazard Reduction Initiative for
more than three years. At the Dec. 16, 2004,
meeting, I objected to The Nature
Conservancy's use of the Hawkins Act on
more than 360 properties on Big Pine and No
Name keys.
This act allows representatives of the
state, county and Nature Conservancy to
enter private property that has been
"Hawkins Acted" for hazard reduction. These
properties may be prescribed burned, or
thinned by manual or mechanic methods. I
stated I was one of four landowners that
declined and that I felt the vast majority of
landowners never saw the notice.
At that meeting, it was agreed that we
should "encourage hammock to replace pine
forest where fire management is impossible"
and that "this will serve as a natural, no-
maintenance firebreak once established."
In many meetings since then, I have com-
plained of work performed that accomplished
nothing but habitat loss or was ineffectual. I
complained that the methodology used in the
most recent fire roads constructed near Eden
Pines and the Blue Hole were tantamount to


on Big Pine
the cultivation of Brazilian pepper.;
It has been said that there are no endan-
gered species, only endangered habitats. In a
community that has lost a substantial portion
of its property rights to protect the habitat of
a host of endangered species, it is very
important for the stewards of this land to
perform their work to the same standard they
place on that community.
In the five years that federal agencies
have reviewed the former Mariners Resort
site for use as a park for our community,
they have cleared 32 acres of critical, endan-
gered-species habitat in protected areas in
the Lower Keys. Although they are exempt
from all state and county laws, they need to
read the Endangered Species Ack
The Habitat Conservation Plan states as
its cornerstone that enough habitat must be
conserved to sustain our endangered animals
and plants. The removal of native hardwood
trees and shrubs that do not burn is not the
right thing to do.
Congratulations to long-term residents for
standing up for Big Pine Key.

Stop cutting endangered species' habitat


EDITOR:
I have lived on Big Pine Key for 13 years
and feel very passionate about the flora and
fauna of this unique island. I am fortunate to
have time to observe the natural web of life
around my yard and have researched some of
its interconnections.
To reduce fire fuel loads, on Dec. 2, Katie
Norris of The Nature Conservancy and her
crew were hand-pruning low-hanging dead
palm fronds and small trees that had died
due to Wilma's surge alongside a neighbor's
lot. She instructed my husband to prune dead
branches from the ground up to chest high.
The branches were chipped by her crew,
mulch left at the edge of the pine rockland.
We asked if the dead pine trees were a fire
hazard and were informed they were not
prone to burn if the fuel (such as we
removed that day) was not available.
In mid-February, subcontractors hired by
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service appeared
alongside our neighbor's lot, the very one
The Nature Conservancy had hand-pruned
two months previous. They were hired to cut
down the.dead pines from refuge-managed
lots alongside homes in the subdivision, I
was informed.
I was aghast when I returned two days
later to see trimmed palms, grass embedded
with pine bark chunks and only a scant few
taller seagrape and poisonwood trees.
Gone were the flowering locust berry, fra-
grant blackbead, berry-laden myrsine and
pisonia trees. Refuge manager Anne Morkill
authorized removal of "undergrowth" up to 6
feet high; some downed native trees were
collateral damage.
Day after day I cringe while listening to
chainsaws and chippers grinding up Tier 1
habitat inside my subdivision. Precious
native plants forage and shelter for birds,
food and egg-laying sites for butterflies -
reduced to chips.


Will there be enough poisonwood berries
to sustain the white-crowned pigeons (an
endangered species) when they return this
summer? Will the Miami Blue butterfly (an
endangered species) be spotted on blackbead
trees elsewhere, but now not in my neigh-
borhood? If migrating birds need to land and
feed for a few weeks this spring due to poor-
weather fallout similar to five years ago,
will they survive to reach their breeding
grounds?
This subdivision will never be part of a
prescribed burn, therefore a different trim-
ming technique and protocol should be
applied. Remove only the dead pines that
might fall on homeowners' land, remove
only dead branches and dead palm fronds.
Keep the limited flourishing habitat we have
left on our island intact.

New construction not always needed


EDITOR:
At its Feb. 18 general membership
meeting, the Tavermier Community
Association unanimously supported
sending the following statements to
the Monroe County Commission and
other cognizant agencies:
"The association is deeply com-
mitted to making genuinely afford-
able housing available to all demon-
strated essential workers in our com-
munity who are unable to provide
adequate housing for themselves. We
believe efforts should emphasize uti-
lizing existing housing.
"The county's Workforce Housing
Task Force is primarily dedicated to
proposals that require large numbers
of new building permits that are
unlikely to be available. The hoped-
for new building permits are based on
the dubious assumption that our hurri-
cane evacuation clearance time has
decreased in the face of development
in Miami-Dade County."
The association calls on the com-
mission and county staff and all sub-
ordinate agencies to:
Focus their energies and
resources more on high-probability
solutions that emphasize retention,
redevelopment and conversion and
less on new construction.
Explore increased funding from
those industries and agencies that


would most benefit from housing-
subsidies.
Acknowledge that hurricane-
evacuation limitations will preclude
large numbers of new building per-
mits.
Assign a larger percentage of
the existing growth rate to affordable
housing.
Pursue housing solutions that com-
ply with our existing comprehensive
plan's community-character provisions.
Jerry Wilkinson, president
Tavemier Community
Association



Lights on for safety
EDITOR:
I have two questions:
I see a lot of signs stating,
"Lights on for Safety." Why don't
the Sheriff' Office deputies heed
these signs?
Florida passed a law some time
ago mandating the use of headlights
when it's raining. Why isn't this law
enforced or heeded by deputies on
the road?
Don't forget, the public learns
from their examples.
Sandy Brown
Big Pine Key


The Supreme Court would disagree


EDITOR:
In a recent opinion following the
ejection from a County Commission
meeting of a woman who expressed
her disapproval by gesticulating with
thumbs down, County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton has provided a
cramped view of free speech under
the Constitution's First Amendment
rights.
She included this gesture within
the opinion that "there is no unbridled
right to speech." Even the


U.S.Supreme Court has taken a more
expansive view of our First
Amendment rights when it concluded
that large money contributions to
political entities can't be controlled
because the contributions are a form
of protected speech. I offer these
opinions as someone who has volun-
teered and fought to protect these
rights.
Henry Bikofsky
Marathon


You can't selectively embrace speech


EDITOR:
I found Editor Larry Kahn's Feb.
28 column, "A thumbs down to
mayor," as misleading, whether pur-
posely biased or simply uninformed,
and resident Kay Thacker's cry for
freedom of speech as ludicrous.
Freedom of speech as a constitu-
tional right is not to be selectively
applied only when it benefits a per-
sonal agenda. Thacker complained to
the American Civil Liberties Union
[about being ejected from a County
Commission meeting] because she
felt her rights were violated at the
Feb. 21 meeting. She was flabber-
gasted that she couldn't express her
opinion.
Yet at the Feb. 8 meeting when the
mayor ordered removal of T-shirts
supporting County Administrator
Tom Willi (which the editor refers to
as free speech), it was Kay Thacker


who was the cause. Thacker com-
plained to the mayor and the commis-
sioners, objecting to the visual but
silent display of support for the coun-
ty administrator. In response, the
mayor requested the T-shirts not be
worn and to be put away.
None of the numerous T-shirt
bearers went to the ACLU, butfol-
lowed the request of the mayor and
remained orderly and respectful of
the county officials and proceedings.
The mayor made a decision in
both meetings in an attempt to
remove disruptions. In both meetings,
the disruptions were caused by the
same person, first opposing, then sup-
porting, freedom of speech. At least
the mayor was consistent and not
selectively choosing applicability of
the First Amendment.

One size doesn't fit all on the diamond

And this issue of the fences and distance
of base paths to accommodate fast-pitch

Residents help DOT make U.S. 1 cleaner


EDITOR:
The Florida Department of
Transportation is going through a process of
eliminating unlawful use of the public right
of way (public lands).
Many people have experienced a visit
from me to find out they had to move their
signs, vehicles and goods for sale off the
FDOT property. The citizens of Marathon,
with the exception of only a few, have
agreed to conform to Florida statutes and
clean up the public right of way.
Conformance has been a significant bur-
den for some and not so much for others.
The department is extremely grateful for


those who have chosen to obey Florida law
and keep the highway safe. A large number
of persons have either called or told me
directly they are very happy with the
cleanup of the city.
Marathon shall be used as an example to
other communities in Monroe County of a
pleasurable scenic drive and safe destina-
tion along U.S. 1 for all to enjoy.
My sincere thanks and gratitude to
everyone in Marathon for being the gra-
cious citizens you are.

Support foundation that supports the needy


EDITOR:
Back in January, my sister (who is an
amputee and confined to a wheelchair)
was in desperate need of a new bed and an
exterminator. She is on a very small
income from Social Security. We tried
every means bf getting these things for
her, but to no avail.
My sister's need was getting unbear-
able. I live in Central Florida (also on a
fixed income) and it's very difficult to
help being so far away, but I got on the
phone and called Frank from Fred's Beds.
He was a very kind person and listened as
I told him of my sister's problem.
He upgraded a bed for her and took my
charge card over the phone. He assured
me my sister would have that bed the next
day. I called Key's Pest Control and they,
too, were kind enough to go over to my
sister's and do the exterminating the next
day. Between those two companies, my


sister was taken care of and again safe in
her apartment.
My sister heard of this organization
called the Center for Independent Living,
which I called. I spoke to a very compas-
sionate person, Diana Ross. I told her of
our problem and she said she would take
it up with her foundation. She did and this
amazing foundation reimbursed me for
everything I had paid.
This organization operates solely on
contributions from people and companies.
I plead with the community to send dona-
tions to this great foundation which, in
turn, can help the less fortunate people.
These people are, in fact, true
Samaritans.
Thank you, again, to the Center for
Independent Living.

Fire destroys two trailers


Two residents
left homeless,
cause unknown
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Two residents at the
Seahorse RV Park on Big Pine
Key have been left homeless
after a wind-fed fire early
Monday morning burned their
trailers in a matter of minutes.
According to reports from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, Seahorse resident
Stephen Morgan called 911 at
3:01 a.m. when he noticed the
trailer directly behind him was
engulfed in flames.
Deputies were the first to
arrive and began evacuating
residents from their trailers at
about 3:06 a.m.
Fire rescue personnel dis-
patched at 3:04 a.m., and the
first pumper truck arrived and
began hosing down the fire at
3:10 a.m. Four other fire vehi-
cles arrived at 3:18 a.m. and
the fire was reported under
control around 3:28 a.m.
Seahorse resident Sydney
Hilton said she and neighbors
watched the fire quickly
spread to Morgan's trailer
while Grant Kavanagh, the
owner of the trailer where the
fire started, was nowhere to be
found.
"Grant tried to dial 911 but
his phone wasn't working, and
instead of going to a neighbor
for a fire extinguisher, he went
to the fire house itself," Hilton
said.
The Big Pine Key fire sta-
tion is on Key Deer Boulevard
about 2 miles from the
Seahorse RV Park.
"During that time, this one
[Morgan's trailer] got so hot

Two residents at Seahorse RV Park on Big Pine Key were left
homeless after a fire ripped through their trailers early
Monday morning. One victim was treated for smoke
inhalation and no cause for the blaze has been determined.


that these [neighbors] over
here were hosing down the
back of the trailer to save it,"
Hilton continued.
In a report to Sheriff's
Office Sgt. Jeremy Davy,
Kavanagh said the fire
appeared to have started in or
near the hot-water heater, and
although he was able to escape
the structure he inhaled some
smoke and was concerned
about a serious heart condi-
tion.
Kavanagh was reportedly
treated by paramedics and
transported to Lower Keys
Medical Center.
Monroe County Assistant
Fire Marshal Arthur "Wally"
Romero said the electric hot-
water heater didn't appear to
be a likely source of the fire,
nor did the charred remains of
a space heater on the floor of
Kavanagh's trailer
"It's hard to determine a
cause because everything was
so burned up, and I didn't get a
chance to talk to the person
before he was transported to


the hospital," Romero said.
"We had a hydrant off of
County Road and another
hydrant nearby, so water sup-
ply was sufficient," Romero
added. "I was just amazed that
the other trailer next door had
virtually no damage whatsoev-
er."
Neil Fenwick, who manages
the park for owner Boca
Developers, said he hadn't yet
seen Kavanagh since the fire to
determine his need for shelter
or other aid.
Fenwick and residents said
Morgan is staying with another
resident of the park, and the
reality of the event is just now
starting to sink in.
"This couldn't have hap-
pened to a nicer person, and he
just paid off that trailer two
months ago," Hilton said. "He
was going to get his permit
[Monday] morning to move his
trailer to Marathon. He already
had a spot in a park up there to
basically live out the rest of his
life. Now it's all gone."

Forestry official
speaks Thursday
on Big Pine Key
State agriculture officials
warned Monday of a higher
wildfire threat this spring due
to warm temperatures and a
lack of widespread rainfall.
Although wildfires can
occur throughout the year in
Florida, the most active time
for -them is from March to
June.
"People are the major
cause of wildfires in Florida,
whether it is the crime of
arson, escaped fire from land-
clearing, children experiment-
ing with matches or an unat-
tended yard fire," Agriculture
Commissioner Charles
Bronson said. "People are
responsible for about 85 per-
cent of all Florida wildfires."
Inadequate or widely scat-
tered precipitation typically
means an increased wildfire
danger and is monitored by
the Keetch-Byram Drought
Index. The index measures
the amount of moisture in the
upper 3 feet of soil on a scale
ranging from 0 (flood condi-
tions) to 800 (desert-like con-
ditions).


already been dealing with the
threat of eviction by Boca
Developers, which has been
trying for months to work out a
deal with the county to transfer
building rights from Seahorse
to build high-end condo units
in Key Largo and then con-
struct new affordable housing
at the RV park.


In recent weeks, the index
has risen to a statewide aver-
age of 404, with a simultane-
ous increase in the number of
wildfires. Twenty percent of
the state is now recording
index measurements of over
600, Bronson said.
Since Jan. 1, the state
Division of Forestry has
responded to 516 wildfires
that have burned 31,470
acres.
Thursday-at 6 p.m. p.m. at
the Big Pine Methodist
Church, across from the
Winn-Dixie Plaza on Key
Deer Boulevard, Division of
Forestry wildfire mitigation
specialist Scott Peterich will
present what the division calls
the merits of a community
wildfire protection plan.
Such a plan enables a com-
munity to plan how it will
reduce the risk of wildfire. It
identifies sites and methods
for "fuel" reduction projects
across the landscape and
jurisdictional boundaries.
Since 2001, a group com-
prising the Lower Keys
Wildfire Hazard Reduction
Initiative has met. It consists
of agencies, governments,
nonprofits and individuals.


Monday, the developer sent
a letter to county Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro outlining a propos-
al to transfer 80 market-rate
building rights from Seahorse
to the Key Largo property with
another 11 available for future
use. In exchange, the develop-
er is offering to give the Big
Pine property to the county.

It's a question on many
minds: Can South Florida han-
dle a mass migration of peo-
ple?
Without proper preparation,
the answer would most defi-
nitely be no. That's what ias
pushed Monroe County law
enforcement to join state and
federal agencies in a full-scale
exercise in how to handle a
mass migration. It takes place
today and Thursday through-
out South Florida.
"There are several state and
local agencies who will be
involved with this effort," said

which is hosting some of the


Callahan's job
isn't affected,
official says
By ALYSON CREAN

- Acting Monroe County Fire
Chief James Callahan Jr. faces
a misdemeanor count of driv-
ing under the influence, but
his position with the county
has not changed, according to
Deputy County Administrator
Debbie Frederick.
Callahan, 60, was arrested
around 11:30 Saturday after a
traffic stop in Key West.
According to the arrest
report, Key West Police
Officer David Swanson saw
Callahan's truck taking a wide
turn in downtown Key West.
"Swanson stated the driver
of the truck failed to maintain
his lane as he drove into the
oncoming traffic lane,"
Officer Kuniko' Keohane
wrote in the arrest report,
"causing vehicles traveling
northbound on Palm [Avenue]
to slam on their brakes and
veer from the road in order to
avoid a collision."
Swanson reported a strong
odor of alcohol and noted that


exercise.
A 2003 presidential direc-
tive established the Homeland
Security Task Force Southeast,
a joint agency endeavor
among hundreds of law
enforcement agencies to pro-
tect and secure the Southeast
U.S. if activated for any rea-
son.
It's designed to be fully
prepared if the worst-case sce-
nario occurs say, Cuba
opens its borders again.
Staff from both the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office and
the Key West Police
Department are planning to
participate in the exercise.
The two agencies would
most likely be considered the
first units of the task force to
respond if a mass migration to
the Keys should occur.
"Most of what we'll be
doing is figuring out our role
in all of this," said Monroe
County Sheriff's Office


Callahan's
speech was
slurred.
According
to the report,
Callahan
S.. stumbled
when he got
or" out of the
truck and
CALLAHAN was caught
by Swanson.
Callahan failed field sobri-
ety tests, according to
Keohane.
The officers reported they
had to ask Callahan a number
of times whether he would
submit to a breath test before
he eventually refused. He was
booked into the Monroe
County Detention Center and
later released.
"His status with the county
hasn't changed," Frederick
said Tuesday. "It all happened
on his personal time, and it
was his personal vehicle."

spokeswoman Becky. Herrin.
"It's going to be a lot of table-
talk scenarios, like, 'If this
happens, this is what we will
do.'"
Similarly, the Key West
Police Department will assign
a representative to serve on
the task force, said Officer
Donie Lee.
"It's important for us to
participate in this because
we'll be the ones on the front
lines if anything happens,"
Herrin said.
Considering the Keys' his-
tory with Cuban migrants, it's
no surprise.
In the past, many have felt
the continuation of strained
U.S. relations with Cuba over
the -past 40 years could be a
direct cause for Monroe
County law- enforcement's
need to fully understand its
role in a possible migration
plan.
The Mariel boatlift in 1980
saw the influx of as many as
125,000 Cubans to the U.S.
The Keys, just 90 miles from
Cuba, are particularly vulnera-
ble to mass migrations from
Cuba.
In 1994, tens of thousands
of makeshift rafts came ashore
in the Keys when Castro
opened his borders. President
Clinton instituted the so-called
wet-foot, dry-foot policy, lim-


iting asylum only to those.who
reach dry land, drastically
reducing the number of
rafters.
A written statement by the
task force emphasizes that
recent events in Cuba over
President Fidel Castro's dete-
riorating health are in no way
the trigger for the exercise.
"In fact, the mass migration


plan does not focus on any sin-
gle country, rather it addresses
mass migration from any
Caribbean nation," it states.

S. Dade plan for 6,000 homes canceled


Keys united
in opposition
to the proposal
By CURTIS MORGAN
cmorgan@MiamiHerald.com

A landowner has officially
canceled plans to build a town of
18,000 on environmentally sensi-
tive wetlands near Florida City
just north of the Keys.
An attorney representing
landowner Atlantic Civil has
withdrawn an application with
regional planners to build Florida
City Commons, a massive project
that has been a lightning rod in
the battle over whether to push
back Miami-Dade County's
urban development boundaries. -
Atlantic Civil attorney John
Shubin said Friday that the com-
pany's owner, Steve Torcise, had
assessed the considerable politi-
cal and regulatory challenges fac-
ing the project and decided
instead to pursue his family's
"traditional business activities"
of rock mining and farming.
"There is absolutely no plan
whatsoever that is waiting in the
wings for residential develop-
ment," Shubin said.
Environmentalists were elated
the controversial mega-develop-
ment was dead but weren't ready
to drop the fight over the future of


the nearly 1,000-acre property,
which is just northeast of the
junction of U.S. 1 and Card
Sound Road in South Miami-
Dade.
"It was a bad project in a bad
location, and I'm really happy
they've come to their senses,"
said Cynthia Guerra, executive
director of the Tropical Audubon
Society. "I'm not sure mining
down there is going to be a better
alternative. The future of that
property is a big question mark."
One thing apparently not in
the future is building a communi-
ty twice the population of Florida
City on the marshy tract between
Everglades and Biscayne national
parks some 1 1/2 miles south of
the county's Urban Development
Boundary, a line intended to limit
suburban sprawl.
That was the plan proposed
three years ago by Atlantic Civil
and Lennar Homes, the housing
giant that had partnered on a
project envisioning 6,000
dwelling units, nearly 400,000
square feet of shops, two schools,
240 hotel rooms and a cinema
multiplex.
Atlantic Civil has been rene-
gotiating or dropping projects as
the housing market weakened
nationwide, but Shubin would
not say what role Lennar or the
stagnant real estate market had

played in the decision. He said
the Torcises had shared Lennar's
"vision" to build workforce hous-
ing for Florida City, which has
annexed the property.
"Unfortunately, that vision
was not shared by everybody,"
Shubin said.
Atlantic Civil consultants had
argued the project had been sin-
gled out unfairly for criticism,
saying much of the property had
been previously farmed and was
far from pristine. Two-thirds of
the tract about 1,800 acres -
also has been set aside already for
conservation and developers
pitched the potential of using it
for Everglades restoration proj-
ects to improve water flows to
Biscayne Bay.
But its size and location also
raised wide concerns, and not just
with environmentalists.
Regional planners worried
about flooding, drains on a tight
water supply and clogged roads.
Florida Keys residents and


state emergency planners worried
about hurricane evacuation" grid-
lock on Card Sound Road and
nearby U.S. 1. The political cli-
mate also chilled, with then-Gov.
Jeb Bush also weighing in against
the idea of moving Dade's devel-
opment line.
"It really shows that when the
community comes together and
says we don't want development
between two national parks, that
good things can happen," said
Sara Fain of the National Parks
Conservation Association.
Joseph Goldstein, another
Atlantic Civil attorney, sent a let-
ter Thursday to the South Florida
Regional Planning Council for-
mally pulling the proposal.
But Atlantic Civil sent up the
first signal that the deal was
falling through in January by fil-
ing zoning and permit applica-
tions for a rock-mining operation
and fewer than 200 homes. Now,
Shubin said, the latest plans
include no homes at all.


Johnson statues

installed this morning


They're staying
for 60 days
in trial run
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

The unfamiliar faces of seven
bronze statues will soon become
new friends after they are
installed around the
Southernmost Point in Key West
today.
Early this morning, a crane is
scheduled to begin placing the
life-sized Seward Johnson sculp-
tures, titled "New Friends," at
the Southernmost Point that will
become their home for the next
60 days. Each statue represents a
different ethnicity from through-
out the world.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson, a proponent of the
statues' installation, will then
later formally accept the sculp-
tures from their world-famous
creator Johnson.
Johnson created the sculp-
tures, which purportedly cost
$750,000, for the Southernmost
Point after receiving an informal
go-ahead from the city's own Art
in Public Places Board. That
decision to do so without official
acceptance of the gift by the Key
West City Commission was criti-
cized by some, especially since


Johnson owns a home near the
site.
A resolution to approve the
statues' placement came before
the City Commission three times
within three months. It failed
.twice in slightly different forms
due to a lack of support for posi-
tioning them in an area where
thousands of tourists flock each
year.
The Southernmost Point,
which has been famously
marked as being 90 miles from
Cuba by a large concrete buoy, is
often congested with people tak-
ing photos to remember their
visit.
Assistant City Manager John
Jones said, "We have a very
severe traffic problem at the
Southernmost Point. We have a
safety problem and we need to
monitor the number of people
there."
The commission chose to
approve the statues, in a resolu-
tion sponsored by Commissioner
Dan Kolhage, at the end of
February for a trial period of 60
days. At the end of the trial peri-
od, the commission will decide if
it will keep the site-specific stat-
ues.
Workers are scheduled to
begin installing the sculptures at
8 a.m. today and the official pres-
entation will take place at 11:30.

Students trickling in


But the Keys
aren't seeing
a big rush
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
-cbraden@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys Spring
Break has gotten off to an
uncharacteristically calm start.
Large numbers of fun-and-
sun-seeking college students
began to arrive over the week-
end, where they immediately
flocked to beaches, grocery
stores, local attractions, restau-
rants and bars.
Yet sticking to original pre-
dictions, local law enforcement
says the numbers are still well
under what has been seen in
past years.
"We're only a few days in so
it's hard to really tell what's
going to happen," Police
Department Capt. Scott Smith
said. "But so far it's been pret-
ty uneventful."
Still, as Spring Break runs
generally from now until early
April, police say they're ready
for anything.
"We haven't had any prob-
lems with Spring Breakers so
far. But it's our goal to stay pre-
pared," Smith said.
Part of the preparation was
establishing a downtown com-
mand post at Old City Hall for
the Police Department and
Monroe County Sheriff's
'Office.
However, because of a dwin-
dled number of revelers expect-
ed in the Keys, the Florida
Division of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco will not
send the number of officers it
has in the past.
"The local [ABT] will be
involved, but no one else com-
ing down from that division,"
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said.
The reduced number of ABT
officers likely will have a direct
effect on Spring Break Court,
which began at 12:30 p.m.
Monday. There were no Spring
Breakers scheduled to appear
either Monday or Tuesday.
The court was established in
1991 as a legal alternative for
students who were arrested dur-
ing Spring Break for common
misdemeanors, including pos-
sessing false identification,
possession of alcohol by a
minor, possession of an open
container of an alcoholic bever-
age in public, disorderly con-
duct and public urination.
However, fewer ABT offi-


cers likely means fewer fake ID
arrests, which was what the
majority of violators were
charged with in years past,
according to Helmerich.
"We're really not likely to
see as many fake ID arrests this
year," he said, noting that the
police are not tasked with
checking IDs.
Even Duval Street bars do
not seem overwhelmed with
Spring Breakers yet.
"I haven't noticed much of a
change [in customers]," said
Louisa Slaven-Boynton, gener-
al manager of Sloppy Joe's Bar,
who believes an increase in
Spring Breakers will come over
the next several days. "We're
definitely picking up business
though."
The Spring Break season
also coincides with another
fun-seeking group that could be
the cause of some business
increases: A fair amount of


Tavernier pair
reportedly sought
historic artifact
Two Tavemier residents
pleaded guilty Friday to a felony
charge of destruction of federal
property valued in excess of
$1,000 stemming from building
fires and illegal digging in the
Key West National Wildlife
Refuge, according to the U.S.
Attorney's Office in Miami.
Fermin Fortun, 60, and
Fermin Fortun Jr., 39, admitted
guilt in Miami before U.S.
District Court Judge James
Lawrence King.
According to the indictment
and court records, refuge offi-
cers, U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service agents and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission investigators began
a joint investigation shortly after
last June 19, when the Fortuns
were seen visiting uninhabited
islands within the refuge.
By mid-July, the Fortuns had
-established themselves at a
campsite on Boca Grande Key
and began excavating a site that
grew to be about four meters
long and four meters deep.
They reportedly were in a
closed part of the key, set fires at
their campsite and were search-


Daytona Beach Bike Week
cyclists have been motoring
into Key West since late last
week.
"We're still receiving the
standard noise complaints,"
Smith said.
Predictions regarding the
number of students the Keys
should expect to see over the
course of the season-were tame.
The low-expectancy reports
were generated because of a
lack in advance hotel bookings
and the minimal amounts of
student-attracting advertising
done.
Jodie Weinhofer, president
of the -Lodging Association of
the Florida Keys and Key West,
partially blames the low Spring
Break advance bookings on the
amount of hotel rooms offline
due to construction and other
causes.
"Certainly those properties
would be attractive to Spring
Breakers," she told Keys
Sunday.


ing for objects of antiquity with-
out required authorizations or
permits. They were arrested last
Aug. 26.
The Fortuns' explanation,
prosecutors say, centered on a
claim that a religious advisor
informed them of a valuable
ancient artifact to be found
where they were digging. As a
result, they secured transporta-
tion to the site- and brought sup-
plies.
But inspection -established
that the substratum is solid lime-
stone undisturbed below the
level excavated by the Fortuns
- clear evidence nothing had
previously been buried there,
prosecutors say.
Prosecutors say the two did it
previously, as well, causing less
intrusion and damage to refuge
property, and were assessed at
almost $10,000 for remediation.
The Fortuns, imprisoned
since their arrests, were sen-
tenced to time served and given
supervised release of three years.

City taking
another shot
at space woes
By CHRISTINE BRADEN
cbraden@keynoter.com

The faded paint designating
residential parking spaces on
the streets in Old Town Key
West is as worn and ineffec-
tive as the permit program
itself, the city's No. 2 admin-
istrator says.
After receiving plenty of
complaints about the deterio-
rating parking situation in Old
Town, the Key West City
Commission enacted an ordi-
nance to establish a residential
parking permit program in
1999. The program was sup-
posed to grant residents of Old
Town special access to park-
ing spaces on their block, and
the city painted the spaces
accordingly.
However, nearly eight years
later, the paint is all but gone
and unknowing tourists are
using the spaces, leaving resi-
dents driving around the city
looking for somewhere to
park.
"Sometimes your odds of
finding a parking space in this
town are about the same as
winning the Florida lottery,"
Assistant City Attorney John
Jones said.
Though the residential
parking program was sup-
posed to alleviate some of the
parking stresses, "The pro-
gram is a disaster," Jones said.
Initially, only proven resi-
dents of the Old Town district
were supposed to register their
vehicles. The program was
then extended to all Monroe
County registered residents,
military personnel and season-
al residents, making it difficult
to track the permits with any
exactness.
According to Jones, there
are 3,800 parking spaces in the
downtown area, including the
city parking garage but
almost 6,000 residential park-
ing permits have been given
out over the years with very
little oversight.
Additionally, allowances
were made in 2003 to let resi-
dents who live in front of

metered parking in the down-
town business district pur-
chase commercial parking per-
mits for $85 annually.
Because the permit pro-
gram does not require an actu-
al decal for all residents but
also relies on Monroe County
tags, it can be difficult to mon-
itor, Jones said.
"The only way we can
enforce [the program] is to
catch the tourists who park
there with out of state tags,"
said Jones.
A ticket for parking in the
residential spaces illegally can
cost $35.
He did admit it was diffi-
cult for many tourists to even
see the paint that designates
the spaces as residential.

Seafood festival


gets new location


Chamber secures
additional space
for parking-
Keynoter Staff

With expected big crowds,
good weather and fresh
seafood, organizers of the
Original Marathon Seafood
Festival are expecting this
year's two-day event to be
"bigger and better than ever."
This is the first year for the
festival's move to the
Marathon Community Park,
instead of at the west end of
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
Parking has been a big
topic for festival planners to
tackle, and they have found
plenty of help to make it work,
said Audrey Moir, executive
director of the Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce.
Parking is free this year and
free shuttle buses will move
festival goers to the park and
back to their vehicles.
Here are the locations of
the three largest lots with
shuttle service:
Stanley Switlik Elem-
entary School, 33rd Street
gulfside.
Behind Fairway Market
on 39th Street gulfside.
The gulfside lot across
from Tropical Furniture


between 48th and 49th streets.
In addition, Moir said over-
flow parking will be available
after hours at Home Depot,
the Marathon Government
Center, Fishermen's Hospital
and the library.
A total of 110 vendors have
signed up for this year's festi-
val, which is the largest fund-
raiser held each year by the
chamber and the Monroe
chapter of the Organized
Fishermen of Florida.
"We have a lot more things
for kids to do this year," Moir
said, "and the park is a much
more beautiful setting than the
airport. Plus, the amphitheater
has really good acoustics and
we've booked a lot of new
entertainment this year."
Scheduled to perform:
Island Vibes, Mojito, Amber
Leigh Band, Amadeus, John
Bartus and Roy McAdams,
Conch Republic Band, Dave
Feder and the Saltwater Blues
Band, and J.A.M. (Jesus and
Music) Band.
Festival hours are 10 a.m.
to 9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Admission is $7 per adult.
Children under 12 are admit-
ted free when accompanied by
a paying adult.
Proceeds benefit scholar-
ships, Adopt-a-Classroom,
youth clubs and related organ-
izations.


trying to overhaul the entire
program," Jones said.
The city parking enforce-
ment department is conducting
its own surveys on the prob-
lem. According to Jones, the
city is looking into the resi-
dential parking programs of
other cities, including Boston.
It's also trying to figure out a
better way to computerize the
system.
A new residential parking
program, which Jones hopes
will be in effect before the
2008 tourism season, will also
need to take into account the
number of former Key West
residents who were pushed
further up the Keys by a rising
cost of living.
"Things have changed,"
Jones said. "We've got to go
back and figure out what to do
now."

the helm.
After a computer check
showed the vessel was listed as
stolen, each of the two suspects
said he was aboard to help the

Pineiro reported.
Orta and Punales ire "claim-
ing they know nothing about this

Congresswoman

Sprunt's career soared


Former Audubon

VP dies at 78

after long career
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer

"Sandy" Sprunt came to the
Florida Keys for the birds, and
stayed to become one of the
best-known conservationists in
island history.
Alexander Sprunt IV, known
locally as Sandy, died Friday at
a Madison, Wis., hospice due to
complications of Alzheimer's
disease. He was 78.
"He loved the Keys," said
his wife, Donna. "I think he'd
like to be remembered for his
career as an ornithologist with
the National Audubon Society,

-. servationist
who worked
i ". to save the
r. Keys."
f As nation-
al research
.t' director for
the National
SPRUNT Audubon
Society, Mr.
Sprunt led several studies of
bird populations including
the landmark effort in the early
1960s that concluded the bald-
eagle population was in danger
because the pesticide DDT had
weakened the species' eggs.
On Grand Inagua Island in
the Bahamas, locals nicknamed
Mr. Sprunt "de fillymingo
mon" for his efforts to chart the
comeback of the pink flamingo

at its remote breeding grounds
there, Audubon magazine
recounted.
His myriad other research
projects included work on the
California condor and
Caribbean seabirds.
Mr. Sprunt was chief advo-
cate for the Tropical Flyways
preservation project in the
Florida Keys that sought to
protect large tracts of undevel-
oped land so migrating bird
flocks could find food and shel-
ter.
The largest of the sites, a
372-acre oceanside tract in
Tavernier, was named the
Sandy Sprunt Dove Creek

From a small, nondescript
building along the Overseas
Highway, Marathon-based Ikaros
Aviation supplies customers
around the globe with the parts
they need to keep their airplanes
flying.
Ikaros is a licensed Boeing
distributor with warehouses all
over the world, including


Singapore, England, Arizona and
Florida. In essence, the company
acts as a middleman for airlines
in search of parts for their air-
craft.
Founder and owner Susan
Manios is a longtime Keys resi-
dent who says she jumped at the
chance to move the company's
headquarters from the mainland.
"For .18 years I was in Miami
and I did that drive back and forth
every single day," she said.
"When this building came avail-
able, I took it and I farmed out
my big-engine things. Avionics
instrumentation is where you-


make most of your money. Big
stuff sells once in a while, this
sells every day. So I keep all the
good stuff here."
In just shy of 4,000 square feet
of space, Ikaros manages to keep
an incredible amount of invento-
ry at the ready. There are new,
used, refurbished and yet-to-be-
refurbished parts, all stored in
separate areas according to
Federal Aviation Administration
requirements.
The walls are lined with end-
less boxes stacked on top of one
another, many filled with scores
of aircraft parts. These aren't

money for.the BPW Scholarship
Fund for graduating seniors at
Coral Shores High School in

"Diamonds Are a Girl's Best
Friend" is the theme and game
plan for the fundraiser.
BPW recently established a
program with Coral Shores to
establish a tax-deductible schol-
arship fund where donations by
BPW members and friends can
be deposited to provide scholar-
ships for graduating seniors.


BPW plans to have several events
to raise money for the scholar-
ship, the first of which is a dia-
mond raffle.
De Paula Jewelers is donating
a $5,000 diamond ring to be raf-
fled off for the scholarship fund.
The ring will be displayed at De
Paula Jewelers and BPW func-
tions until the raffle date, which is
set for late in April.
De Paula's has chosen several
rings to be displayed, and the
winner will be able to choose
which one he or she likes best.
"We didn't want to limit it,


because someone might like an
engagement-type ring, someone
else might want a more contem-
porary piece, so De Paula's is
working with us to have several
options," said Patricia Mull,
BPW member.
"The men like to raffle their
boats and cars, but women, we're
looking for things that are not
depreciable," she added.
Tickets are $100 each and can
be purchased at Mull &
Associates Financial Services,
mile marker 90; Vicki Walker at
TIB Bank, mile marker 100; De

ed for the 24-hour, high-stress job
she relishes. To watch her, one
would think she was born into her
line of work. The fact is a series
of unimaginable circumstances
led her to where she is today.
"Let's see... I sold my house in
the Florida Keys, bought a yacht
in Fort Lauderdale. I was heading
to the Virgin Islands to retire with
my husband. Our yacht went
down in Hurricane Hugo, he
died, I floated at sea for three
days," she explained bluntly in a
matter of seconds. "When they
found me and [air evacuated] me
back to the United States, my
son-in-law said 'What are you
going to do? Are you going back
to the Keys?' He told me to come
work for him and I told him, 'I
don't know aviation, I'm a
chef.'"
Manios eventually relented
and took her then-son-in-law's
offer, but after only nine months
had a revelation.
"I just knew I didn't want to
work for him anymore, so I
opened my own business," she
said. "He took his company pub-
lic about two years afterwards,
went belly up and I bought him
out of bankruptcy auction. I sold
off his inventory and kept the
building. That's how T got into
this business, and I love it."
Manios arrives at work every
day between 3 and 4 a.m. and
usually doesn't leave until around
4 p.m. She does business around
the world and must be available
24 hours a day, seven days a
week to accommodate her cus-
tomers. Her e-mail inbox for one
day alone had hundreds of orders
and requests.

'Karnival' a hot attraction


Keynoter Staff

The annual Kids Karnival,
hosted by the Big Pine Key and
Lower Keys Rotary, was held at
Camp Sawyer north of Big Pine
this past weekend.
Dozens of volunteers turned
out: Keys Energy Services
offered rides on its trucks' buck-
ets, the Marine Bank Manatee
visited with the kids, Publix host-
ed a cookie decorating booth and
snow cones, cotton candy, ham-
burgers and hot dogs were the
order of the day.
A carnival group, based in


What's a circus show without cotton candy? Kaitlin O'Malley,
at the festival volunteering with the Girl Scouts Troop 197,
enjoys the circus over a sweet, sticky treat before running the
kids game booths for the other little ones at the event.


Myakka City, Fla., offered a cir-
cus show, bounce house and big
slide, and camel rides. Kids were
particularly impressed with
Khabir Muhammad's exotic ani-
mal collection, the "globe of
death" show and a "dog and pony
show," with a bevy of cute dogs
and a tiny horse, Chavo.
Outside the big top, Master
Richie's Defense Systems' stu-
dents showed off their Tai Kwon
Do skills, Terry Cassidy per-
formed while Terry Miller ran
kids' karaoke. Rich Lessig, magi-
cian, kept children enchanted by
pulling rabbits out of hats.


Who says camels don't get thirsty? This big girl takes a Diet
Coke break while giving children rides on her hump. Her
trainer, Khabir 'Charlie' Muhammad, says the camel always
wants whatever it is he's eating or drinking, even if it's diet
soda. He also says despite camels' bad reputation for spitting,
this one in particular has better manners.

lose game 8-5
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

By the fifth inning Monday,
the Marathon High School base-
ball team looked poised to get a
much-needed win over longtime
Keys rival Coral Shores.
Catcher Chris Garrett had just
wowed the home crowd with a


three-run homer, and No. 1 pitch-
er Toby Eigner was keeping the
strong Hurricanes lineup in
check.
But after taking a 5-2 lead, the
Dolphins committed a fielding
error, then missed a fly ball, then
were caught sleeping on a hot
grounder and then committed
more bad throws.
When the dust cleared, the
Hurricanes celebrated an 8-5 vic-
tory that proved why teams play
all seven innings.


"You can't give a team like
Coral Shores too many chances
like that or they will capitalize,"
Dolphins coach Luis Leal said.
"We came out full of fire, but by
the fifth inning we just got bored
with the game. It's about focus."
Marathon (2-3) has played an
up-and-down season and was
coming off a dominant 11-4 win
over Westwood Christian.
Coral Shores (5-3) also beat
Westwood, 7-4, on Friday and
seemed to carry that momentum

Lady Canes shock the Fins


4-run rally
in the seventh
gets the win
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The mood was loose in
Marathon High School's dugout
Monday.
The Lady Dolphins had every
reason to feel confident, up three
runs and needing just one more


out to beat local rival Coral
Shores.
Hurricane Shelby Gentes was
on first after a one-out single, but
seemed destined to stay there
after an easy pop fly for the sec-
ond out.
Then came the improbable.
Four hits three of them by
freshmen brought in four runs
as Coral Shores pulled out a
shocker, 4-3, in the bottom of the
seventh against a stunned
Dolphin squad.


"That's one of our three best
comebacks ever," Hurricane co-
coach Paul Grewe said. "Right
now, I can't think of the other
two."
The win moved Coral Shores
to 2-3 doubling the win total for
all last season. "Two wins in a
row," co-coach Mike Young
smiled. "We've got our mojo
going."
"It's one of those things that
happen," Dolphin coach Jason
Frank said. "We just couldn't get

Conchs

split

with

Patriots

Good showing
against nation's
No, 19 squad
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

-After beginning the sea-
son with seven consecutive
home games five victories
and two defeats the Key
West High School baseball
team finally takes to the road
this weekend for two District
16-4A games in Miami.
The Conchs, 1-0 in the
district, will play St. Brendan
at 3:30 p.m. Friday and then
move on to Belen Jesuit for a
1 p.m. game Saturday.
Belen knocked the
Conchs out of the playoffs
last season on a seventh-
inning home run.
"That will be a big moti-
vating factor for us," coach
Miguel Menendez said. "I
think the whole team is look-
ing forward to the Belen
game."
The Conchs are coming
off a split last weekend with
American Heritage, a team-
that had been ranked 19th in
the country by Baseball
America.
Friday night at Rex
Weech Field, Key West came
back from a 2-0 deficit and
edged the Patriots, 3-2, on a
game-winning hit by
Michael Arencibia. Blayne
Weller went all the way on
the mound, allowing six hits.
"That was another step in
the right direction for our
team," Menendez said.
"They believe they can win
every game."
The Conchs had that
belief on Saturday night as
they were locked in a 1-1
struggle with Heritage after
five innings.
But the Patriots finally got
to Conch ace Daniel Foltz in
the sixth, scoring two runs on
a single by Eric Hosmer, a
triple by Adrian Nieto and
another single by Deven

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The bus carrying the Key

late. When it pulled up to-
Westminster Academy's Hill
Family Track Complex in
Lauderdale Lakes Friday after-
noon, the 19th annual Angelini

Andres Garcia, Keith Durden.
Robbie Hogan and Richard
Neuman headed straight to the
4xl10-meter shuttle hurdle event
- and won it in a time of
1:12:11.
That set the tone forthe rest of
day as the Conch boys finished
first in the 17-team small-schools
division. The Key West girls fin-
ished eighth in a 20-team field,
ahead of ninth-place Gulliver
Prep.
"Everybody did a great job,"
coach Dave Perkins said. "They
all ran better than I thought they
would for this time of the year."
The Conchs also finished first


in the 4x400 relay as Seve Llama,
Marcus Bolden, Brian Silva and
Mason Marshall turned in a time
of 3:29:42, edging out
Monsignor Pace.
Key West's 4x800 team com-
posed of cross-country runners
Marshall, Mike Eder, Jason

illness, finished eighth in both the
4x200 and 4x400 events.

Lea Moeller and Courtney
Walker were among the speediest
Conchs. "They all ran well,"
Perkins said.

Tennis Dolphins get

first match win


But Marathon still
falls in weekend
doubleheader
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Angela Farello and Kelsey
Wonderlin earned the first win of
the year for the Marathon High
School tennis team Saturday with
an 8-6 doubles win over players
from Carrollton.
The Lady Dolphins still
dropped the overall match 6-1
and also lost 7-0 to LaSalle earli-
er that day. The boys' team also
lost to LaSalle, 7-0.
The boys sit at 0-2 for the sea-
son while the girls are 0-4.
Marathon coach Mark Hooper
said the season will likely contin-
ue to be tough for the young
Dolphins, but they should also
continue to keep their heads up.
"All of our players played


strong but continue to go against
players that play tennis year
round and are [U.S. Tennis
Association] tournament play-
ers," Hooper said. "I continue to
be pleased with our team's effort
and sportsmanship."
Still, the doubles win was a
nice moment for the Dolphins,
who host the Conchs of Key West
at 4 p.m. Thursday at the
Marathon Community Park.
"It was a tough match and
could have gone either way,"
Hooper said. "Our ladies played
great and came off the court with
a well-earned victory."
Hooper said Marathon's best
chance for a win against LaSalle
was at the No. 3 girls position
with Annabelle Walker heading
into a tiebreaker at 7-7.
SWalker held her own but was
defeated in the tiebreaking game
7-4.

Marathon splits weekend


By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com


It seems to be a tale of two
teams for the 2007 Marathon
High School softball team, which
beat Ransom Everglades, 10-2,
Saturday following a dismal 19-3
loss to Westminster Christian on
Friday.
Marathon coach Jason Frank
said the key is errors.
The Dolphins only recorded
two in the commanding win and
had 12 in the equally command-
ing loss.
"That will do it to you every
time," Frank said. "They were
scared to death, and I'm not sure
why. We gave them 12 of their 19
runs on our errors. It was amaz-
ing."
Frank said the majority of the
errors were from bad throws,
which he said comes from a lapse
in fundamentals.
"They are not setting their


feet, and they are throwing
sidearm. The ball isn't going to
go where you want it to," he said.
Marathon saw the same in the
final inning of Monday's game at
Keys rival Coral Shores, where
the Dolphins committed errors in
the final inning to give away the
game.
Pitcher Megan Gardner strug-
gled in six innings against the
Warriors, allowing nine- earned
runs off 16 hits with one strikeout
and two walks.
In Saturday's game, Frank
gave Shelby Kuck her first career
varsity start. Although Kuck has
looked strong in practice, she
struggled early by walking four
and allowing two runs, which
forced Frank to bring in Gardner
to clean up.
"Shelby's a phenomenal ath-
lete, it was just a mental lapse that
day," Frank said. "I think she


could still be our No. 2 pitcher.
She has the talent."
Gardner proceeded to limit the
Raiders to only one hit in six and
two-thirds innings.
"She was pitching a pretty
good game, just throwing a lot of
strikes," Frank said. "She fielded
seven balls hit right back to her;
so she was putting it in the right
spot."
Marathon scored three runs in
the first off errors and walks and
one more in the third after four
straight walks.
But the Lady Fins broke the
game open in the sixth with a
four-hit and two-walk inning to
score six runs.
Kelly Struyf was l-for-2 with
two runs scored, and Abi Meyer
was l-for-3 with two runs scored.
Gardner went 2-for-4 at the plate
and scored a run.
Marathon hosts District 16-2A
foe Palmer Trinity at 4 p.m.
Thursday.


Dolphins lose focus


BASEBALL / From 25

into the latter half of Monday's
game.
"It was a good game.
Marathon played really tough
and played hard," Hurricanes
coach Jeff Meyers said. "We
were fortunate to score some
runs in the late innings to win."
Eigner pitched the whole
game for Marathor) with five
strikeouts, two walks and three
earned runs off 12 hits.
Stephen Fowler started for
Coral Shores and was pulled in
the third after giving up five
runs. Mike Rentz finished the
game with no runs and seven
strikeouts.
The Canes scored in the first
when leading slugger Ralph
Medina hit a sacrifice fly to
score Ryan Biondoletti.
Medina was 2-for-2 with four
RBI.
But the Dolphins' Garrett
answered with a line drive that
bent just around the foul line
for the three-run homer.
Marathon added two more in
the second when Thomas Ryan
scored Jay Hegland on a single
and then later scored on a bad
pitch. The Canes got one back
in the third when Eigner made
a bad throw to first base.
In the fifth, Marathon short-
stop Daniel Perry missed a
grounder to put two runners on.
Then Medina lined to outfield-
er Mike Kuck, who misplayed
the ball and allowed the two-

run triple.
The Dolphins then watched
a Lee Cash hit blow by to score
Medina, and the momentum
was back with the Hurricanes,
who scored three more in the
seventh to wrap the game up.
The Dolphins had multiple
opportunities to close the gap
but couldn't get timely hits.
"We went back to our old
selves. Looking at good pitches
and swinging at bad ones,"
Leal said. "We need to have


better discipline at the plate.
That's basically it."
A scary moment came in the
fourth inning, when Marathon's
best hitter, Sean O'Connor, was
hit in the head by a pitch.
O'Connor nursed a bruised ear
and neck the rest of the game,
although Leal said he would be
ready for next week's games.
Marathon hosts Westminster
Christian at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Coral Shores hosts Archbishop
Curley at 4 p.m. Friday.

Hurricanes come back, shock the Dolphins


SOFTBALL / From 25

that last out. I hope [Coral
Shores] said thanks, because we
handed it to them."
The afternoon game at Coral
Shores moved at a quickstep pace
as both clubs struggled offensive-
ly through four scoreless innings.
Both lineups hit the ball, but
could not link the hits.
Marathon High School pitcher
Megan Gardner collected only
one strikeout, but limited the
Hurricanes to lonely singles, pop
flies and grounders through six
innings. Dolphin shortstop Abi
Meyer anchored a defense that
left Cane runners stranded at
third in the first and fourth
innings.


Coral Shores freshman pitcher
Holly Given gave up eight hits to
Marathon, but her season-high
six strikeouts limited the damage.
Dolphin leadoff hitter Alexis
Culver connected for a triple in
the fifth inning, bringing home
Gardner for the game's first
score. Gardner had drawn a walk.
Marathon padded the lead in
the top of the seventh, as Gardner
led off with a single. Hits by
Culver and Shelby Kuck, and a
walk to Sandahl Stephens, gave
the Dolphins two more runs.
It could have been more, but
Hurricane outfielder Kelsie
Baker and third baseman Ciara
Sanchez reeled in pop flies. A
.strikeout closed out the stanza.
After a groundout started the
Hurricanes' last at-bat, Gentes


singled. A pop out moved Coral
Shores one out away from going
home.
Andrea Cockerham singled to
keep the inning alive. Baker con-
nected for an RBI single, and


Chelsea Russell did the same.
Lauren Sanchez, a freshman
shortstop, tagged a deep double,
scoring two runs that ended the
game.
Culver, Meyer and Kuck each


had two hits for Marathon's
offense, while Gardner and
Melanie Boyd each had one.
Coral Shores closed with nine
hits, led by Baker and Gentes
with two each.

Conchs split two


CONCHS / From 25

Marrero.
The seventh inning began in
ominous fashion for the Conchs.
A hit batsman and two consec-
utive bunt singles loaded the
bases with no Outs and brought
the slugging 6-foot-4 Hosmer to
the plate. Foltz induced him to hit
a weak ground ball but third
baseman Charlie Walker-Yhap
threw wildly to first base and all
three runners scored.
The scoreboard, if it had been
working, would have read 6-1,
and that would become the final
score.
"Division 3," chided Conch
fans as Hosmer, a Division 1
prospect, perched on third base
and smiled over at them.
It was not the Conchs' night.
They scored their lone run in the


third inning and had an opportu-
nity to get more but Artie
Grizzle's hard shot up the middle
was turned into an inning-ending
double play.
"[Heritage] was the best team
we've faced this season,"
Menendez said of the 6-2
Patriots. "The experience of play-
ing them hopefully will give us
an edge this weekend."
Weller (3-0) will start against
St. Brendan and Foltz (2-1), who
was the victim of the playoff
homer last spring, will try to get
revenge against Belen.
Of his young team's impres-
sive start, Menendez said, "I
thought it was possible because
of the pitching, but after seeing
some of the teams we've faced, I
think 5-2 is very good. We have
played better offensively than I
thought we would."


for a Tuesday meet (results not
available at press time).
LaSalle and Archbishop
Curley will be in Tavemier for a 3
p.m. Friday meet.

Lacrosse
Coral Shores' girls lacrosse
team ran into state contender
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
School this week, and fell to the
undefeated Eagles, 17-8.
Douglas (5-0) was up, 11-2, at
halftime.
Coach Mark Hall said he was
pleased the Lady Hurricanes (2-
3) fought to limit the Douglas
scoring attack, then went on
offense after halftime.
Team scoring leader Rachel
Catanio scored five goals against
Douglas, giving her 20 for the
season.
Darcie Spaulding scored
twice, and Vallarie Ostenson hit a
solo goal.

Offshore
A couple of boats scoring
a fev\. choolle dolphin and
the Islamorada Hump pro-
ducing the standard "'foot-
ball" blackfin tuna is all the
offshore news as of late.
Come April. or a1 soon as
the north and west winds
subside, we will see a more
consistent dolphin presence.

Reef
Sailfish catches are siill
on the dow\n side: just a tfe\
single release flags on rigger
ihnci ha\ been the norm for
the last few weeks.
According to man\ cap-
tains (both private and char-
ter), bait such as ball;hoo
and pilchards is in short sup-
ply. It seems recently some
out-of-town commercial bait
boats have swept through the
Upper Keys and swept up
loads of bait, and with a
shortage of sailfish food, the
sailfish go elsewhere.
The king mackerel are
still ifi good supply and
man. charters are fishing the
deep water for the 10-to 20-
pound macks.
Capt. Wes King, fishing a:
private boat, had the best
catch of yellowtail snapper
in recent memory. He boxed
20 or so yellowtail in the 4-
to 5-pound range.

Gulf, bay
Well, the Spanish macker-
el have slowed this week,
maybe due to an increase in
water temperature; and the
water has gotten very clear.
The Spanish seem to prefer a
water temperature of around
78 degrees.

Flats, backcountry
The bulk of the back -
country success is the good
sea-trout fishing. The trout
are in good numbers and size
around the Oxfoot Bank and
the Sandy Key Basin area.
Capt. Lou Brubaker tells of
releasing lots of trout 18 to
20 inches. The big sea trout
are slurping jigs with a dark
grub tail.
As for the bonefish, a few
guides tell of slow-going on
the bonefish flats. But look
for the big migratory tarpon
to begin showing up and get-
ting active as springtime
temperatures rise.

Capt. Tez Waters explains being a responsible angler to dozens of children and adults at the
Key West Rotary Club's weekend show. More than 500 people attended the hour-long
educational lessons. Each participant was rewarded with a fishing rod and tackle box from
the Fish Florida program.



'Main Attraction II'


captures the Shell


Turnout's high
for the first
two-day tourney

For the past month, sailfishing
in the Florida Keys could be
described by one word:
[Expletive deleted].
Leading up to last weekend's
ninth annual Leon Shell
Memorial Sailfish Tournament,
tournament organizers were
understandably nervous about
interest from charter and recre-
ational fishermen, and the recep-
tion to expanding the Shell to two
days from one and upping the
prize money to more than
$20,000 in cash.
Fast-forward to Sunday
evening at the awards ceremony
at Sparky's Landing in Key
Colony Beach to a packed house
of more than 200 people. You
could hear the collective exhale
as the largest Shell field ever
assembled cheered loudly.
The loudest ovation wasn't
when the $15,000 first-place
check and trophy were presented,


Sbut when
Lois Shell,
widow of
"tourna-
m ent
4: namesake
1. Leon, pre-

h v iLinda
Johnson
f r o m
Hospice of
the Florida
Key s/
Cal Sutphin Visiting
Nurse
Association with tournament pro-
ceeds of $15,000, an all-time
high.
But the sailfishing was slow.
Asked how slow, Tim, the mate
on the Silver Queen, said, "Well,
it started off slow and then
petered off toward the end of the
day."
Out of 33 boats and 103
anglers, just 16 sails were caught
on circle hooks and released.
What also was not a surprise
were the names on the top of the
leader board Sunday evening.
With three sailfish caught and


released was the Main Attraction
I from Key Colony Beach with
Capt. Shelby Bentley. The team
earned the championship trophy
as well as a $15,000 payday to
help them cope with getting
skunked on Sunday.
Bentley's team actually caught
all three fish the first day, and the
lead held through Day 2, when
they did not manage a sailfish.
First runner-up boat was the
Compromise with Bob Kidwell
out of Marathon. Kidwell's team
finished with three, as well, but
lost out on catching its fish after
the leader.
Rounding out the top three
was the Main Attraction with
Capt. Marty Lewis, also of Key
Colony Beach, with three sail-
fish, as well.
The Champion Angler went to
Joe Suroviec, fishing aboard the
Natural with Capt. Reese Lewis
out of Big Pine Key.
Marathon's Alex Bell was
Champion Junior Angler. Hat's

Don't waste that catch before cooking


Proper cleaning,
packaging will
save the flavor

You caught it, now what?
Believe it or not, that question
is asked more by anglers than any
other this time of year with so
many visitors who are not famil-
iar with the wide variety of
species we have in the Keys.
First of all, is it something I
want to keep or throw back, is it
good to eat and how do I clean it?
Those who target a particular
species and know all about it
wouldn't think there are some
who just don't know.
Those who have fished all of
their time in fresh water probably
aren't even aware of the fact that
you don't want to be sticking
your fingers in the mouths of
most of the fish we have here -
chances are you won't get all of
them back.
Gills are another place to keep
your digits away from, as many
of these fish have a line of bone
inside them that will slice you
wide open.
Keeping your catch properly
chilled is another very important
factor. If your catch is allowed to
expire warm and not cooled cor-
rectly, it will dramatically
decrease the amount of time you
will have to store the fish before
it turns bad. The same is true for
cleaning your catch.

.9.,P.


S, o
many will
lay out the
day's prizes
for all to
see. This is
great for
photos; but
too long in
K e y s
weather
and your
fish will
losing
Dave Navarro quality rap-
idly.
Different species require dif-
ferent techniques to clean them
and get the most meat in your fry-
ing pan, not to the pelicans. Use
of an electric knife is very advan-
tageous for many species but not
all, as you can miss quite a bit
from some.
Plus, there's the age-old ques-
tion prevalent with many kinds of
fish: "What parts do I keep and
what parts do I throw away?"
Filleting is a skill learned over
time and with much practice.
Obtaining a high skill level while
still possessing all your fingers is
always a bonus.
Speed is not always the sign of
a good fish cleaner, particularly if
one is partaking in a celebratory
brew or two.
To obtain the very best flavor
of fresh Keys fish, proper cook-
ing is essential; you don't just
slap it in a frying pan and cook it
until it turns dark brown. This


quite often is over-cooking and
will make the meat taste dry and,
in some cases, too fishy-tasting.
Most-light meat fish will cook
quite quickly and should be
extremely moist and flaky. Tuna
and cobia are prime examples of
darker or heavier-textured meat
that can actually be marginal in
flavor with over-cooking, yet
when done right, are awesome.
Probably the biggest mistake I
have seen anglers make is in
long-term storage of fillets. By
this, I mean freezing.
How many times have you
looked in the freezer and found a
bag of fish that has darkened in
color, become covered with frost
inside the package, or just plain
looks dried out? Think of all the
effort you expended to get the
boat, bait and tackle ready; the
time you spent out fishing; the
time cleaning your catch and
then you hurried to pack it up for
the freezer.
I've seen fish go south within
a week in the freezer due to poor
packaging.
How many times have you
eaten fish that was frozen and it
tasted too fishy? There are ways
to prevent this from happening.
First, any fish that I clean, I
completely remove the bloodline.
This is the line that runs between
the top and bottom portions of a
fillet. This contains a high con-
centration of blood and in parts,
tiny bones. If this remains in
when frozen, this is what will


make your fish taste fishy.
The darker the meat of the fish
you're processing, the greater this
comes into effect. With a tuna, for
example, you leave this in and
when you thaw and cook it, you
might just be better off eating the
pot and throwing the meat away.
At this week's free fishing
seminar in our outdoor amphithe-
ater at our Marine Educational
Center at mile marker 50, we'll
cover all aspects of what I have
been talking about everything
from how to get your fish into the
boat, how to chill it, clean it, cook
it and pack it for storage. We will
also cover techniques and recipes
for smoking fish.
We're have a host of other
experts to educate you on what to
do with your catch so you can get
the most out of it. There might
even be a tidbit or too around for
you to try.
That's Thursday at 6 p.m., and
it's free.

obtained a grant through the
Fish Florida Foundation,
which secured 800 fishing rods
and tackle boxes for novice
and beginner anglers of all
ages.
The gear was given out and
the education imparted at the
Rotary's fifth annual Boat
Show and Nautical Market at
the Outer Mole Pier in Key
West. The participation was
inspirational.
Each recipient was treated
to four 15-minute talks on
environmental awareness,
tying knots, tackle and rigging,
and safe casting practices.
These seminars came compli-
ments of more than 10 fisher-
men, not including Rotary
Club volunteers.
Mind you, the temperature
reached a high of 93 degrees
over the weekend and the
courses started at 10 a.m. and
ended around 4 p.m. That gives
you an example of the instruc-
tors' dedication to teaching
their craft.
Huge thanks go out to cap-
tains Paula Carbonell, Bob
Beighley, Chris Aubut, Greg
Daniels, Ernie Maynard, Craig
Murdock and Tez Waters for
giving up a day's charter dur-
ing the busiest time of their
year to be involved.
Also, a pat on the back to
Rodney Goodship, Jason
Drevenak, Martin Alsobrooks,
Richard Keener from the
National Park Service, and
Officer David Dipre from the
state Fish Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission for their ded-
ication.
The reward for their service
is that now, more than 500 kids
and adults have the opportuni-
ty to enjoy what we all do here
in the Keys fish.

On 'Reelin' in the Keys with
Cal' at 8 p.m. Monday on
Comcast Cable Channel 19, I
get treated to a day of fishing
for cobia on a Gulf wreck with
Capt. Pepe Gonzalez from
Pepe'e Charters out of the
