The Sunday death of a Fort
Myers man diving off Key Largo
raised to six the number of divers
who have perished this year in
Keys waters. ,
Mark Matthiessen, 50, sur-
faced around 10 a.m. near the
commercial dive boat Tropical
Voyager, moored at French Reef.
"The captain ... asked if
Matthiessen was all right," relat-
ed Deputy Becky Herrin, infor-
mation officer for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
"[Matthiessen] indicated he need-
ed help. As Matthiessen was
being assisted aboard, he col-
lapsed and stopped breathing."
The boat raced to rescuers
waiting on shore while crew tried
cardiopulmonary resuscitation,
but Matthiessen died before
reaching paramedics.
Matthiessen was making a
reef dive from the Sea Dwellers
III commercial boat, in shallow
depths of around 30 feet.
An autopsy was performed

but cause of death was not avail-
able at press time.
In similar cases, an air
embolism caused by surfacing
without exhaling, or complica-
tions from a heart condition,
often are found to be at fault.
The six-death total for less
than three months of 2007 was
boosted by the loss of three tech-
nical divers-who went into a dan-
gerous area of the Spiegel Grove
shipwreck March 16.
Because dive-related deaths
spiked during the past two lobster
mini-seasons in July, a coalition
of local agencies and experts is
preparing to launch the new
Florida Keys Safe Diving
"Forgetting to do really basic
stuff is killing people," said Bob
Smith, head of the dive program
at Florida Keys Community
College. "It's been especially bad
in mini-season."
Last mini-season, five divers
died. In 2005, four died.
An educational campaign
reminding divers of techniques

that keep them alive will make its
debut by summer.
Laminated cards will be dis-
tributed, with a safety checklist
on one side, and an emergency-
response list on the other.
"One side reminds them what
to do to stay safe, the other side
tells them what to do if there's a
problem," Smith said.
"A lot of these accidents
occurred in shallow water with
divers forgetting very basic
skills," says Robert Guhl, a mem-
ber of the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office Dive Team.
"Most were preventable, had
divers reviewed skills and
checked equipment properly."
The U.S. Coast Guard, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, the Sheriff's
Office, Key West Police Depart-
ment, National Marine Sanctuary,
Florida Keys Community
College Dive Program and others
are cooperating in the effort.
"We want everybody coming
down here for mini-season to get
one of these cards," Smith said.
"We want them to find one on
their table at breakfast."

Taylor was reportedly airlifted

life-threatening injuries.

Monday, three autos were
involved in another crash near
the Sugarloaf School traffic light
near mile marker 19.
According to reports,'
Orlando resident Bobby
Gordon, 50, was driving a 2006
Volvo tractor-trailer south at
4:04 p.m. with passenger Rita
Batenich, 44, also of Orlando.
Gordon reportedly reacted
slowly to a standing red light at
the intersection of Crane
Boulevard and struck the rear of
a 2002 Chevrolet occupied by
Chester, Va., residents Earl
Wells; 56, Patricia Wells, 59,
Lenny Smith, 44, and Mildred
Smith, 60.
The Chevy reportedly was
propelled into a 2007 Ford occu-
pied by John Blood, 57, and
Denise Blood, 55 of Santa Rosa,
Calif. The Bloods' Ford traveled
into the mangroves on the east
Earl and Patricia Wells and
John and Denise Blood suffered

injuries and were reportedly
released from Lower Keys
Medical Center. Lenny and
Mildred Smith were severely
injured and were airlifted to
Ryder Trauma Center in Miami
and remain in critical condition,
reports state.

All passengers were wearing
seatbelts and alcohol reportedly
wasn't involved. Gordon was
charged with careless driving.
Sunday's fatalities bring the
total deaths on Keys highways
this year to six.

and municipal code officers.
A special meeting was held
Monday to brief about 15 code
"We want everybody to be on
the same page," Weaver said.
"The key is -to be consistent
throughout the county."
Violators likely will receive a
warning for the next few weeks as
an educational effort. After mid-
April, fines for most residential
violations could run from $25 to
$500, depending on the severity.
A few complaints reportedly
have been phoned into the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority, but residents wishing
to report violations should con-
tact local code enforcement. The
FKAA does not have enforce-
ment authority.
The water-use emergency was
declared because low rainfall

lowered Lake Okeechobee a
key source of South Florida's
fresh water to dangerously
low levels. "Projected drought
conditions are in the red, mean-
ing conditions could persist or
even intensify," Weaver said.
Rules limit some activities
like car-washing to certain days
and times.
Monroe County was in a
water emergency in 2000 and
early 2001. Most rules are the
same, but some have been
changed. For instance, even
Lower Keys residents with pri-
vate wells (the only place in the
Keys where such wells are feasi-
ble) were exempt previously, but
now must abide by the restric-

said. "There are a number of
variables. Each is evaluated on a
case-to-case basis. It is deter-
mined in part by the ability to
pay, and it's also dependent on
the condition of the unit."
Among the guidelines for pur-
chasing a FEMA travel trailer:
FEMA will first determine
whether there are qualified
rentals available in the area. If
none are, the eligibility determi-
nation may continue
The applicant must have
sufficient money available to
purchase, maintain and, if neces-
sary, relocate the unit
FEMA will allow funds to
be contributed from other
sources, such as charities or vol-
untary organizations, to help the
applicant meet eligibility
The applicant must certify
the unit will be used as his or her
primary residence for a minimum
of one year.
Potential buyers are respon-
sible for utility hookups and a
place to put the trailer.


In addition, FEMA has a
donation policy that allows non-
profits and local government
entities to accept trailers as dona-
tions to house hurricane victims
for up to one year after the dead-
"We are actively seeking such
groups to help the individuals
who remain in FEMA housing in
Monroe County," said Homstad.
"The program has already proven
to be successful. Following the
2004 hurricanes in Florida,
FEMA donated about 600 units
to nonprofits and government
agencies so those groups could
house disaster victims."
FEMA provided 1,900 trailers
statewide after Hurricane Wilma.
Many of those have been refur-
bished for future disaster assis-
tance. Those that are not worth
rehabbing, Homstad said, are put
up for auction on the General
Services Administration's Web
site, www.gsa.gov.
"We started selling them in
2005," he said, "and generated
$22 million in sales for used
units. In 2006, receipts were over
$14 million."

Has Marathon had its run as a city?

could be tough,
if support's there

It's been just seven years
since Marathon voters decided
overwhelmingly to create the
Keys' fifth municipality, and
now some residents apparently
seek to dissolve the city and
return to Monroe County rule.
The decision could come
down to a simple public vote.
But the process of dismantling
the city could be complicated,
some experts say, and is
unprecedented in Florida's
recent history.
"There is. huge, huge sup-

port," said Marathon resident
Sally Buehler, who is leading the
movement and claims to have
hundreds of signed petitions
from residents unhappy with the
city's perceived unchecked
development, excessive spend-
ing and political corruption.
"I stopped counting about
two months ago, and we had just
over 300 petitions at that point. I
imagine there's a couple hun-
dred more since then," she said.
Despite repeated requests,
Buehler would not show proof
of any petitions to the Keynoter.
Buehler said she plans to mail
petitions to all of Marathon's
nearly 5,800 registered voters.
The returned petitions are being
kept in a private safe, she said,
and in a few months will be cer-

tified and delivered to state Rep.
Ron Saunders.
Saunders said he would spon-
sor legislation for dissolution:
referendums in Marathon as well
as in Islamorada, where rum-
blings of dissolution have also
surfaced, if there is the support.
"In June or sometime, I'd like
to have a public hearing and
have the citizens and the city
make their points," Saunders
said. "If there is no legal imped-
iment, then we should put it on
the ballot and let the people
decide, if nothing than put the
issue to bed."
Buehler, who had opposed
the city's incorporation in 1999
but ran (unsuccessfully) for City
Council in 2000, said she would
end her campaign if the voters
reject dissolution, although she
expects many to vote for it.
"What some people don't
really understand is we are still
under the county," Buehler said.
"What happens when an area
incorporates is duplication.
What we have is another very
expensive layer of government."

the city's "excessive taxes to
feed the open checkbook and
personal pockets."

incorporation from a total
millage of 14.4574 in 1999 to

of 8.6590 slightly higher than
the 8.4283 millage assessed to
residents of unincorporated
areas from Summerland Key to
the Seven Mile Bridge. That
includes all agencies with the
ability to tax, such as the School
Board and Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District.
City Finance Director. Peter
Rosasco said Marathon has one
of the most fiscally healthy gov-
ernments in Florida, but that
may not continue if the city is
absorbed back under the county.
"Anyone under city contracts
would have very good reason to
get out of them, should they
want to. I could see a lot of
things grinding to a halt," said
Rosasco, who referenced ongo-
ing 'contracts for a new fire sta-
tion, sewer installation and
many city services.
"Our [sewer] project has been
designed, the state has approved
funding and a very significant $8
million grant predicated on us
starting at a certain date and hav-
ing it completed on a certain
date," Rosasco added. "I think
all that could be in jeopardy."

It would be up to the City
Council and County
Commission to work out a plan
to transition contracts, grants
and services, according to offi-
cials from the Florida League of
Cities, an advocacy group repre-
senting nearly all of the state's
412 municipalities.
Chapter 165 of Florida
Statutes states that after dissolu-

tion, the county would assume
title to all city property as well
as the city's debt, which would
likely be repaid through a spe-
cial taxing district within the for-
mer city limits.
According to Rosasco, that
debt would be nearly $11.4 mil-
lion if the city dissolved today.
"It would be hard to predict
how it would happen, because
we don't have a real modem
example to go by," said Lynn
Tipton, director of membership
development for the League of
Cities. "Of the last 20 years,
there certainly haven't been any
major cities dissolve."
Tipton said the last Florida
dissolution was in 1998, when
Palm Beach County bought out
the land of 43 residents in what
was the city of Golf View at the
west end of the Palm Beach
International Airport. Golf View
incorporated in 1937.
However, www.keyshistory
.org, the Web site for the
Historical Preservation Society
of the Florida Keys, states the
long-forgotten city of North Key
Largo Beach dissolved in 2003
by a special act of the
Legislature long after the city
was created on paper by
Miami-based developers in
1955. The city apparently never
got off the ground.
, But Tipton said a city the size
of Marathon hasn't dissolved in
Florida since the Depression,
which could spell an interesting
legal debate if it actually hap-
pens. Marathon City Attorney
Jimmy Morales agrees.
"It would be a lawyer's
delight," Morales said. "When
you don't have clear law, that's
when people can get into real
fun legal arguments. I can safely
say that anybody who claims to
know what would happen is
probably not telling the truth."
Still, the city will never get to
that point without widespread
community support for dissolu-
tion, which some say just isn't
Former Marathon Mayor
John Bartus said he heard from
many residents unhappy with the
current track of the city during
his recent unsuccessful bid to
return to the City Council.
However, few pushed for disso-
"Some of the groups' posi-
tions are things that just go out-
side of local government's con-
trol," Bartus said. "When you
abolish this local government, it
doesn't mean those things go
"If there are problems, I think
it's a whole lot easier to fix them
as a city."

on what additional work qualifies
and how much should be award-
This was a chief finding by the
state's Auditor General's Office
in a report dated March 2007.
The report focuses on the 2005-
06 fiscal year (July 1 to June 30),
but also looks into district spend-
ing so far this fiscal year.
According to the report, the
practice of awarding this extra
pay by the district, referred to as
supplements, is gearing up in
2006-07 to almost meet 2005-06
levels, which according to an
independent consultant's audit,
reached $1.8 million.

From July 2006 to the end of
December, the district has award-
ed 1,196 supplements totaling
$1,690,086, according to the
report. The board never.adopted a
policy explaining why or if this
amount of spending is justified,
the report states.
"A written board policy was
not in place specifying the addi-
tional assignments and duties that
qualify for salary supplements
and the criteria to be used to
determine the amount of the sup-
plements to be awarded," state
auditors wrote.
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
was out of the country and unavail-
able to comment, but his written
response was included at the end
of the report. He wrote the district
would have a study done to
address supplements, and based on
the study's results, "a policy about
supplements will be developed."
Evergreen Solutions, an inde-
pendent auditor, stated in its
report last April that much of the
supplemental pay was being

expected to receive bids from

work, Griffiths said.
The district will not have
revised policies about awarding
salary supplements until the con-
sultant's report is finished, the
auditor general's report noted.
"District personnel indicated
that the board will wait until the
salary schedule methodology is
finalized and adopted before

report states.

Keys Opinion

Photo ops aside, U.S.

not serious on ethanol

The roar of the engines at the Homestead Motor Speedway
last weekend sounded the same, but there was a distinctly dif-
ferent smell about the place.
Some described it as smelling like popcorn.
Not too far off the mark, since the high-speed race cars par-
ticipating in the Indy Racing League race were burning 100
percent ethanol, a fuel largely distilled from corn in this coun-
You may also have seen President Bush on Monday in a
photo op on the Mall in Washington, D.C., where he show-
cased fuel-efficient vehicles, including what are known as
mixed-fuel alternatives.
And the president garnered headlines on his recent Latin
American tour by visiting one of Brazil's giant ethanol-pro-
ducing plants, which now produce enough fuel to replace 100
percent of Brazil's imported oil needs for transportation.
All this talk of ethanol and mixed fuel vehicles is designed to
focus on how we can wean ourselves from over dependence on
foreign oil.
-Best case, ethanol made from grain might replace 10 percent
of the gasoline now being consumed in this country and it's
not enough.
A more revealing look at what has happened to energy inde-
pendence comes from examining the Bush Administration's
record the past six years on vehicle efficiency standards.
Last year, the rules for measuring fuel efficiency on SUVs
and light trucks were actually relaxed. This was done to insu-
late U.S. auto manufacturers from meeting the high fuel econ-
omy standards that should have kicked in 2007-11.
A study by the National Environmental Trust found that after
promising to increase fuel efficiency standards 4 percent a year
for that period, the Bush administration changed that target to
2 percent improvement per year.
And the administration has targeted California's tougher reg-
ulation of greenhouse gas emissions for federal preemption,
which runs counter to the whole idea of conserving energy to
break our dependence on foreign sources of oil.
In 1975, when Brazil began its ethanol push, it imported 90
percent of the oil needed to run their cars and trucks. Last year,
Brazil became oil independent and now exports ethanol to
other countries as a fuel substitute.
Despite vows from every president since Jimmy Carter about
oil independence, the U.S. still imports nearly 60 percent of the
oil we use each year.
High-visibility photo ops on the Mall, in Brazil and even
publicity generated by the Indy cars racing with 100 percent
ethanol can't hide the facts.
The average fuel economy of cars, trucks and SUVs being
driven today in the U.S. today is the lowest in two decades.
That popcorn odor detected at the race track may be a hint.
We're being served up a carnival sideshow not a real com-
mitment to energy independence.

U.S. 1 right of way isn't a
On behalf of the Florida Department of
Transportation, I would like to respond to a
recent letter to the editor concerning the unlaw-
ful use of DOT's right of way along U.S. 1.
The department's primary responsibility is to
ensure the safety and convenience of motorists,
pedestrians and bicyclists using the state high-
way system, not to provide a captive audience
for businesses that want to advertise for free
within or adjacent to the public right of way
contrary to local planning, land use and build-
ing codes.
We have responded to numerous requests
from citizens who are desperate to have boats,
trailers, RVs and other vehicles moved from the
right of way these vehicles are used to
advertise improperly. Often, these signs and
vehicles block sight distance, reduce parking
for legitimate patrons of all businesses (not just
those who are illegally advertising), damage
shoulder and swale areas (which costs taxpay-

ers money), limit or make unsafe the existing
access along U.S. 1, restrict the visibility of
regulatory and warning signs, and distract driv-
ers from their primary task, not to mention are
an eyesore.
It is also important to mention that U.S. 1 in
the Florida Keys has been designated as a sce-
nic highway, something we all can be proud
about. This road is the gateway to Monroe
County that most visitors, tourists and residents
alike, first see when they travel to various desti-
nations throughout the Keys.
In a region whose main industry is tourism,
it is crucial that our main street remains safe
and devoid of the type of visual pollution that
once allowed to proliferate, becomes near
impossible to remove. We must all continue to
work together to ensure that the Florida Keys
remains a safe and livable community.

DOT District 6

FIRM fundraiser helps all of the Keys

How do you thank a group of people who
go above and beyond all expectations and
deliver $6,605 in virtually six hours?
Dave and Teresa Scott organized and spear-
headed an event at the Marathon Moose Lodge
to raise funds for FIRM (Fair Insurance Rates
in Monroe) for the sole purpose of helping us
help all Monroe County residents and- property
owners to continue the fight in Tallahassee for
lower windstorm insurance rates for all.
Inasmuch as the funds raised were huge,
the whole event, from weeks of planning to
execution, was huge. It is no wonder that
Dave and Teresa have such a large and devot-
ed following. The musicians and performers
so generously gave their time and talent to
help FIRM.
Dave had asked me to bring a lot of volun-
teers, so thanks to all of my friends who
showed up to work. Unbelievably, however,
they had little to do because the women of the
Moose Lodge, the Moosettes, had every aspect
of the day covered. They worked so hard and
long. Their unselfishness, their commitment,
their energy and their obvious commitment to
making this day a success was evident to all of
us. The Moose men were also integral in the
day's achievements. John Grouten organized
all of the raffle donations, called all of the
winning numbers and was our head banker at
the end of the day.
Our thanks also go to all of the businesses
from Key Largo to Key West for their raffle
donations. There were so many incredible
items and so many winners who were all the
donors for the day. One of our largest business
supporters, who receives our deepest ongoing
gratitude, is WGMX and Monica Stanny.
Without their support from the beginning, this
issue and fight would never have had the
exposure it has.
Last, but definitely never least is my best
FIRM partner, Mary Pridemore. Mary totally
understands the value of numbers and, in this
case, I'm talking about FIRM membership.
Mary tirelessly recruits new members so that
when we go to Tallahassee, thanks to the
funds raised, our Legislature knows how deep
FIRM's support is in this fight.
At the end of the day, the biggest winner

was FIRM and all residents and property own-

County's wallet needs to shrink

Monroe County Property
Appraiser Ervin Higgs stated "prop-
erty tax was meant for services like
police protection, fire protection." It
would seem then, that buying and
sinking ships [for artificial reefs],
buying waterfront property, restau-
rants and a myriad of other non-serv-
ice related purchases are a misuse of
property tax revenue.
Taking a highly valuable taxable
resort property off the property tax
roll to provide an open-water view
for a new county office complex has
always seemed questionable and not
in the public interest.
The public has complained that
the county's overspending has been
out of control for years. Government
officials didn't care to listen. Now
that the county's flow of money
might be drying up due to tax
reform, they are starting to worry.

bility for past misguided failures and

to read them thoroughly.
My company was the lowest bid-
der on the $250,000 annual subsidy
offered by the state Department of
Transportation. Half of my user's fee
and 10 percent of every private func-

position financially than it is today.

Seven Mile Bridge is unsafe, but
now the contract is going back out to

Everyone's cards are now on the

Fight for teacher housing

is key to good schools

The Monroe County School Board's
effort to develop affordable housing
in back of Sugarloaf School was
recently approved 5-0. This was done
in the face of considerable opposition
by parents, who don't want teachers
or support staff living so close to the
I believe this unanimous vote will
be seen as a major benchmark in the
fight for affordable housing for essen-
tial community personnel throughout
the county.
To offer a compromise, I suggested
at the March 13 School Board meeting
to eliminate the eight pro-
posed rental units, which
decreased the density from
36 to 28. This provided all
ownership units selling
between $215,000 and -
$275,000. Ownership will
be focused on the earning -
ability of a teacher with a
family and double-wage
earning families.
Although the School
Board is a self-permitting
agency, the proposal will go Dui
through the normal permit- Da
ting process, during which Mathews
time there will be further elected
public hearings for citizens four-yea
to voice their concerns. The the Schc
whole project review could in 200
take up to 18 months and booar
may involve building-per- chai
mit allocations under the
rate-of-growth ordinance
from the state Department of
Community Affairs.
The crisis is here. It is not coming
tomorrow or next year. We have to
deal with providing affordable hous-
ing now for our teachers if we don't
want to see the public school system
destabilized in five years. By then,
some 20 percent of our experienced
teachers in the classroom today will
have retired. What is the School
District going to do to replace those
senior teachers if we can't replace
them with the best and brightest from
outside the county?
I don't think anyone wants transient
substitute teachers, not fully certified
nor experienced, leading our continu-
ing efforts toward developing aca-
demic excellence in our classrooms.
Good schools are all about good
teachers. And that is why the School
Board is taking a proactive role in try-
ing to provide as many affordable
units as possible for both rental and
ownership for teachers as well as non-
instructional support personnel.

As a long-time resident in the Lower
Keys, like so many of my neighbor-
hood friends, I chose to buy a house
on Little Torch Key back in 1980
because it was the most rural part of
the Keys. I'm always upset when I see
the constant tug and pull between
maintaining a rural atmosphere while
doing what is necessary to provide
growing community needs to stop the
erosion of our working middle class
as more and more families are forced
to leave the Keys.
I firmly believe this affordable
housing plan at Sugarloaf School is a
very necessary trade-off
between what needs to be
done in the Lower Keys to
help solidly future teaching
in our schools while not
^-- unduly impacting our rural
community character.
-.& We have the highest
teacher turnover in Florida
at about 20 percent when
the state's average is about
6 percent. The constant
turnover of 100 teachers
wcan every year is the single
on greatest determent we have

Sto ment.

d vice acter, which makes the

us all, we must figure out a
way to provide necessary
housing opportunities to. stop the con-
stant erosion of our population. As the
largest employer in the county, apart
from the U.S. Navy, the School Board
has a responsibility to be a leader in
the fight for affordable housing coun-
There is a growing need to develop
public-private partnerships to make
homes available to people in essential
services. Creative innovations are
required in zoning, financing, housing
density and land use to encourage the
building of well-designed affordable
housing close to the work place. As
we have seen with the Sugarloaf proj-
ect, it is essential to maintain commit-
ment to make something work in the
face of strong opposition.
The urgency of finding a solution to
the high turnover of teachers is hinged
on the housing situation we find our-
selves in. It's a crisis that won't go
away unless we face up to it now and
deal with it the best way we can. That
is what the Sugarloaf housing propos-
al is all about.-

Officer says
Fantasy Fest
tape ruined life
Associated Press

A nude appearance in a
"Girls Gone Wild"-style adult
video sold on the Internet has
cost a veteran police officer
her job again. -
The graphic video shows
former police officer Gina
Wiseley dancing nude at Key
West's Fantasy Fest in 2001.
She resigned from her job as a
Lee County Sheriff's Office
deputy in 2005 after a local TV
station reported on her appear-
ance in the tape, triggering an
internal investigation.
Punta Gorda police fired

Wiseley Feb. 27 after another
internal investigation into alle-
gations that she showed the
video to a detective while on
duty. The investigation found
no proof of the charge.
But Wiseley was fired for
violating agency policy when
she contacted the detective
who made the allegation dur-
ing the internal investigation,
according to an Internal Affairs
In a statement to investiga-
tors, Wiseley, who had worked
at the department since
October, said she called the
detective "because I wanted to

because I was horrified with
the allegations."
She also called the tape "the

Though Pribramsky is free

faces a civil suit filed by Abreu

Monroe County Circuit Court.
It includes an attempt to fore-

one belonging in a civil court,"
Meyers wrote in his report.
"The state has no reason to
involve itself in a civil dispute

"I've had two speeding
tickets my whole life. This is
the most foreign thing I've
ever experienced," Pribramsky
said, adding he's pleased no
threat of criminal charges is

Meyers' report says
Pribramsky ended up repaying
the account the allegedly
forged checks were drawn on,
"further complicating this

Meyers said the state would
have had to prove Pribramsky
actually forged the checks and
that he intended to injure or
defraud a person or firm.

serving on the School Board,
is a partner in the Pribramsky

Citizens group endorses Sterling process


A spokesman for the
Concerned Citizens of the Keys
group, which has been critical of
county government in the past,
says the groundwork has been
laid for the county to get on an
improved track within a year.
Gordon West, spokesman for
the Keyswide group of residents
and homeowners' associations,
told the Monroe County
Commission last week that
Carroll Consulting Inc. has laid
the bedrock for improved service,
"but the hard work lies ahead."

West said the county should be
ready to create annual strategic
plans by March 2008.
County Administrator Tom
Willi asked West to weigh in on
the county's efficacy in large part,
he said, due to recent criticism of
nearly $400,000 already spent on
the consultant in the pursuit of the
Governor's Sterling Award,
which recognizes good business
"I knew [West] would give the
program a fair shake," Willi told
the Keynoter. "But I also knew he
would be critical if necessary."

Monroe County hired Carroll
Consulting in 2005 to help
improve the way the county does
business. The company special-
izes in grooming local govern-
ment entities for the Sterling
Concerned Citizens in 2004
and again in 2006 issued formal
challenges to the county to take
steps to improve customer serv-
The County Commission has
taken the group seriously, even
agreeing to include its members
in the interview process in 2004
when Willi was hired.
The group started as the

Concerned Citizens of the hower
Keys during the incorporation
frenzy that hit the Keys in the late
1990s, according to West. In the
beginning, membership included
the' homeowners' associations
from Rockland, Sugarloaf,
Summerland and Cudjoe Keys.
Over the years, membership has
extended up the Keys.
"We're obliged to face all of
these problems," West said. "We
can sit back and take our lumps as
we have been. We can ask staff to
continue to sit at their desks and
wait for problems and complaints
to come in over the transom. Or
we can work harder defining our
challenges and opportunities the
Sterling way."
"I believe very strongly in the

Spehar called the first-year
expenses for the program "hor-
rendous," and said she'd like to
see the county move forward on

West said senior management
and the commission need to buy

improve public service.
"The County Commission
needs to come off the sidelines
and make their function an inte-
gral part of the management
process," West said.
"In almost every instance that
the County Commission has
come off the sidelines," respond-
ed Commissioner George
Neugent, "I've seen things get
screwed up royally."

2005 storms
kicked back
sand and silt

Hurricanes are not only devas-
tating, they're also causing a
dredging redux at Key West
In 2005, sand that shoaled in
from the busy hurricane season
filled in previously dredged areas
of the channel and harbor. Now
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers is going back and re-
dredging the harbor.
The first, similar project,
funded by the U.S. Navy, began
Feb. 22, 2004, and took two years
to finish due to continual inter-
ruptions by the 2005 hurricanes.
According to project manager
Jacqueline Keiser, shoaling is an
ongoing process that's accelerat-
ed by hurricanes. The rough
winds kick up sand, rock and silt
and create shallow areas below
The area of the harbor in need
of dredging is one that was com-
pleted during the 2004 dredge but
filled back up as the hurricanes,
hit, Keiser said.
The Navy and the Corps of
Engineers finished the original
maintenance dredging in 2006.
With 819,000 cubic yards of
material that was removed from
the harbor, that project was a
much larger endeavor than the
current one, in which 113,000
cubic yards will be removed.
It's expected to begin mid-
April and take fewer than 95 days
to complete, according to Keiser.
The cost is $1.1 million, covered
by the Navy.
Lately, Naval Air Station Key
West has refrained from allowing

large ships into the channel
because the mounds of sand pose
a threat to sailors' safety /and
damage to boats. The dredging
would deepen the channel to 36
feet, making the passage of large
ships feasible.
The channel is 300 feet wide.
"The harbor is an important
port for the Navy and in order to
meet their training requirements,
we need to keep the channel at its
maximum intended depth,"
Keiser said.
A survey was conducted last
week to determine the depth.
According to Keiser, the results
will be available at the end of this
Key West is no stranger to
dredging. In 2004, the $36 mil-
lion project involved dredging
the channel to keep passing
cruise ships from stirring up silt.
The Army Corps doesn't per-
ceive silt being a problem after
completion of this project.
The 2004 project separated the

materials and took the extracted
silt to a management site on
Fleming Key and the sand and
rocks to an area of deep water
with no resources, Keiser said.
But the area to be dredged now is
expected to contain a lot of sand
with less rock and mud.
All of the dredged material -
rock and sand will be dumped
in an area approved by the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency, about 13 nautical miles
south of the harbor, the same
location for the last dredging.
Keiser said it is difficult to tell
how long the dredging project
will prove useful. It all depends
on what the hurricane season has
in store, and whether more shoal-
ing will occur.
But at least for the near future,
things should run a little more
efficiently for NAS Key West.
"By restoring the channel, it
maintains the capability of the
Navy by being able to bring in
larger size vessels like destroyers
and cruisers," base spokesman
Jim Brooks said.

Offender sweep
nets one arrest

One man was arrested over
the past 10 days during a Monroe
County Sheriff's Office sweep of
the county for sexual offenders,
according to Deputy Becky
The sweep was done county-
wide except for in Key West,
where that city's Police Depart-
ment has jurisdiction.
Herrin said detectives had a
list of 40 offenders to check. The
list included all registered
offenders not on probation,

parole or under Department of
Corrections supervision. Of
those 40, three failed to update
their registration information and
were not living at the addresses
they listed.
One person on the list,
Randolph Jackson, 41, had an
existing warrant for failure to
register and the Big Pine Key
address on file for him did not
exist, Herrin said.
The three that couldn't be
found were Kevin Farrell, 34;
Waldemar Pacheco, 48; and
Donald Mell, 48. Warrants will
be issued for failure to register.

first cruise ship docked at the
somewhat remote pier. In early
2002 the company, which oper-
ates the Conch trains and trolleys,
signed a three-year contract; the
contract was later extended for
two years.
HTA charges the city $1.50
per head, but charges for only 80
percent of the passengers and 50
percent of the crew, figuring that
not everyone gets off the ships.
Chris Belland, a partner in
Historic Tours, declined com-
ment on why the company did
not bid in February.
According to the request for
bids, the successful bidder would
need to be capable of carrying "a
minimum of 1,700 passengers
per hour from the ship to speci-
fied Key West locations and
According to the request, the
Outer Mole averages 234,000
ship passengers and crew mem-
bers annually. However, the city
will not guarantee that number.
The carrier must also be avail-
able on 24 hours' notice.
It's unlikely any other local
carrier would have the capacity to
move that number of riders,
though the bid could be consid-
ered by an out-of-area shuttle
business. The city does give pref-
erence to local businesses,
according to the bid request.
Archer said if there are no bid-
ders, the city could be forced to
hire buses and employees to
cover the service.
"It's not economically sensi-
ble for the city to provide this
service," Archer said. "But I
don't even think it's an issue. I
just think our first advertisement
went so low under the radar that
it was missed."
The request for bids notes that
the vehicles used should "be rep-
resentative of Key West and be
part of the overall experience for
the cruise ship passenger."
Historic Tours fits the bill,
providing 90-minute guided tours
of the island as well as trans-
portation to a variety of locations.
"We take very much pride in
what that passenger experiences
when they get to Key West,"
Archer said.
The city pays for the shuttle
service out of disembarkation
fees from the cruise ships. Cruise
lines pay $10.63 per passenger
that comes ashore in Key West,
Archer said, adding that 63 cents
of that goes to providing security.
The request for bids closes
April 11.

Interest adding

up in Duck case

$13.5 million
judgment still
under appeal

The snail's pace in the city of
Key West's appeal of the Duck
Tour Safaris' judgment against
the city couldn't end soon
enough, according to some.
"I'd certainly like to see it go
away," City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez said. "It's been
going on for way too long. It
should've never happened in the
first place, and that's without
fault on either side."
In May 2005, the city lost a
lawsuit against Duck Tour
Seafaris, a company that ran land
and sea tours with World War II
amphibious vehicles. Duck Tours
contended the city forced them
out of business in Key West in
August 1995.
The company claimed city
ordinances allowed a monopoly
by Historic Tours of America and
in May 2005, a jury awarded
$13.5 million in damages.
The city immediately appeal-
ed, and apparently interest on the

damages continues adding up
into the hundreds of thousands of
The action taken against Duck
Tours initially spawned from con-
cerned officials at the time who
claimed Key West's streets were
overly cramped with traffic and
couldn't handle the traffic of
other competing tour companies.
The concerns grew into two
ordinances passed by the city
commission that granted a
monopoly of rights to Historic
Tours of America, owner of the
Conch trains and trolleys.
The terms of the ordinances
prohibited the issuance of fran-
chises to competitors of Historic
Tours and set a 1,000-foot restric-
tion of any offices, depots, ticket
booths or passenger pick-up and
drop-off sites from Historic
Tours' depots.
Michael Barnmes, the attorney
for Duck Tours, and Shawn
Smith, city attorney, could not be
reached Tuesday.
Historic Tours has operated
the Conch Trains and Trolleys for
close to 30 years in Key West.
The franchise pays the city 5 per-
cent of gross receipts for the

Man admits taking Keys coral

A Miami man pleaded guilty
Thursday to federal charges he
illegally harvested and sold
coral taken from the Florida
Keys National Marine
When sentenced June 1 in
U.S. District Court in Miami,
Alexandre Alvarenga-Freire, 40,
faces up to five years in prison, a
fine up to $250,000, three years
of supervised release, and an
order of restitution.
Additionally, his 1969, 34-
foot fiberglass Morgan sailing
vessel, the Pippin, which was
used in the harvesting, will be
forfeited to the United States.
According to prosecutors,
Freire was taking Ricordia flori-

da, a mushroom are prized by
aquarists for their varied color
and ability to impart a natural
look to tank displays, from off
Cudjoe Key.
Here's what happened,
according to prosecutors:
In November, two German
nationals were intercepted at
Miami International Airport
attempting to export 500 speci-
mens of Ricordia florida, with
live rock attached to the polyps,
for sale through their business in
Dusseldorf, Germany. They
admitted to investigators they
were involved with Freire in

Special meeting called


Two resolutions and a presen-
tation by Shirley Freeman from
Key West's. city-manager search
committee are bringing the City
Commission together for a spe-
cial meeting at Old City Hall at
5:30 p.m. Thursday.
Both resolutions are to grant
special permits for weddings and
receptions at the Southernmost
House. One wedding is from-5 to
11 p.m. Saturday, the other 5 to
11 p.m. July 6.
While weddings might seem
like routine issues for the city, it's
necessary they. be addressed in a
special meeting, Mayor Morgan
McPherson said.
The meeting is a result of a
late advertisement posted by the
city for the March wedding, said
McPherson, who will be in
Tallahassee lobbying on behalf of
municipalities until Friday.
While McPherson is more

than 600 miles north, the special-
event permits for the weddings
will be considered and Freeman,
the search committee's liaison to
the City Commission, will pres-
ent the panel's progress.
Freeman will present a final
list of requirements for the next
city manager. That criterion is
expected to be officially estab-
lished at the committee's next
meeting, at 6 tonight at Old City
Current City Manager Julio
Avael's contract expires in
November, and he plans to retire
then. McPherson has said he
wants to fire Avael without cause
before then. A resolution to do so
was tabled at last week's City
Commission meeting, and the
issue is not expected to come up
Among other issues that will
probably be discussed tonight,
according to Freeman, will be

whether an outside consultant
should be hired to assess the can-
didates for the position. Freeman
has served on three separate

side consulting for assessing the

Cubans find loopholes in economy

Can the desire
to subsist be
called corruption?
' McClatchy Tribune

Awaiting the birth of his first
child, the headwaiter of a popular
tourist restaurant figured out a
way to secure a $100 baby
stroller he couldn't afford to buy
at a state-run store.,
"I invited a group of Chilean
tourists to a lobster dinner in
return for their stroller," said
Eddie, 30, who asked that his full
name not be used. "I would have
to stop eating for months to get a
new one. Instead, I gave away a
few plates of food for it."
Eddie earns the equivalent of
$12 a month at the restaurant in
colonial Old Havana, he said. His
dinner guests consumed four
plates of lobster tails with
steamed vegetables plus drinks.
The check totaled $150. A co-
worker at the cash register agreed
to look the other way.
"The tourists were leaving the
next day, and they asked me to
meet them at the Habana Libre
Hotel. They gave me the stroller,

which was very nice, almost new.
It looked like a Lada," he said,
referring to the ubiquitous
Russian-made sedans in the capi-
With Fidel Castro ailing and
absent from the public eye, one of
the biggest challenges for his
brother and political heir, Raul,
will be dealing with the bleak liv-
ing standards endured by many
A dysfunctional economy
means major problems with pro-
ductivity and the delivery of
goods and services, forcing many
Cubans to break some law- in
order scrape out a living. Many
steal from state enterprises and
then sell items from air condi-
tioners to microwaves to lobster
tails and slabs of horsemeat -
"por la izquierda," or "from the
left," a common phrase fused to
refer the black market.
Communist authorities like to
point out that all Cubans are guar-
anteed employment and educa-
tion, health care, housing and
food. Still, many workers who
rely on their $12 to $15 a month
in' earnings from state-run busi-
nesses said salaries alone are

never enough to make ends meet.
S"The perception is very clear
among economists here that the
Cuban economy doesn't func-
tion," said Pedro Monreal, a pro-
fessor at the Center for Research
on the International Economy.
"In the end, it is difficult to imag-
ine popular support for whatever
follows Fidel if that ... govern-
ment does not deliver in terms of
the well-being of the people."
In the six months since Fidel
Castro removed himself from
power because of what is sus-
pected to be severe diverticulitis
with complications, his brother
has promised to continue on the
socialist track.
But unlike Fidel Castro, who
framed the widespread corruption
as .a matter of personal greed,
Raul Castro seems to recognize it
as a systemic problem.
In a speech before legislators
in December, Raul Castro com-
plained about the economic inef-
ficiencies, saying there was no
excuse for rampant food produc-
tion problems and other failings.
"In this Revolution we are
tired of excuses," he said, signal-

as he hit a few practice shots
before Sunday afternoon's 20-

Appropriately dressed in a

four courts, each with six wickets,
set up on two of the Little White

No one at the party knew more
about croquet than Key Wester
Maryholt Maxwell, the tourna-
ment director whose official sta-
tus was confirmed by her blue
sash and white U.S. Croquet
Association shirt.
"It's chess and billiards on
grass," she said from beneath a
safari hat.
But when she was first per-
suaded to play croquet 25 years
ago, she said she didn't have time
for "this stupid game."
She changed her mind and
became a top player. "I was the
national senior doubles champion
in '02. '03 and '04," she said.
One of Sunday's more enthusi-
astic players was Jim Conley, a
ruddy-faced 69-year-old snow-
bird from Delaware whose play-
ing partner would be his wife,

"I feel like I'm at a costume

red-and-black argyle sweater and
matching socks that his white
knickers made even more visible.

sashed official called out, and at 1

shot late in the game.

Marsha-Marsha, but his shot was
errant, much to her chagrin, and

Marathon High School's line-
up got to face a Coral Shores
pitcher making his first 2007
start in Monday's opening game
of a Spring Break tournament.
Unfortunately for the
Dolphins, Cane pitcher Alex
Nobregas is among the most vet-
eran of the Coral Shores staff.
SNobregas, who frustrated the
Dolphins in an 8-1 Coral Shores
win, had stayed away from
pitching this spring while recov-
ering from a rotator cuff injury.
"The arm feels good,"
Nobregas said. "I was throwing
a lot of fastballs and sliders.
Nobody was hitting 'em."
Nobregas went six innings,
limiting the Dolphins to one run
on five scattered hits. He collect-
ed seven strikeouts.
"It was good to see Alex back
out there," Coral Shores head
coach Jeff Meyers said. "He did
a fine job."
Coral Shores, ranked No. 9 in
the state Class 3A poll by the
Florida Sports Writers
-Association, improved to 9-5.
The Dolphins are 2-8.

O'Connor opened the game with
a single and came around to

Marathon drops

another in tourney

Leal: Dolphins
need desire
to play, win

The Marathon High School
baseball team finished a short
Spring'Break tournament 0-2
with a loss. Tuesday to
Rockledge High School, 7-1.
Marathon fell to Coral
Shores Monday% Now they
stand at 2-8 after six straight
"We just need to come out
with a fire and a desire to play
and not just go through the
motions," coach Luis Leal
said. "We have the talent. It's
just a matter of executing
everything right and wanting
to be there."
More errors, which have
become Marathon's Achilles'
Heel, showed up Tuesday
against a very fundamentally
"sound Rockledge team.
"They really made no field-
ing mistakes at all," Leal said.
"But we gave them runs they
shouldn't have gotten drop-
ping balls in the outfield, play-
ers running into each other."

Marathon's No. 1 pitcher,
Toby Eigner, allowed five
earned runs on 12 hits and
struck out five and walked
Marathon scored its only
run in the first. Leadoff hitter
Sean O'Connor walked, stole
second and then scored on a
single by J.P. McCabe.
Eigner crushed a double to
the fence that looked like
enough to score McCabe, but
the Rockledge defense had
other ideas and threw him out
at home. -
"The outfielder needed to
make a good throw, and the
cutoff man needed a good
throw," Leal-said, "and they
made them."
Marathon only got one
more hit the rest of the game
and never threatened to score.
Rockledge tacked on three
runs in the third when right
fielder Jake- Sjursen collided
with Blaine Connell, who had
called a fly ball.
"That was a bad decision on
Jake's part," Leal said.

Spring Break with a home

Some of the athletes were
away on trips, others were weary
from a morning triathlon, but the
Key West High School track
team still had enough talent
Saturday afternoon to wear down
St. Brendan.
The Conch boys won, 101-32,
and the girls prevailed, 91-29, in
the last home meet of the season.
The boys were led by Keith
Durden, who had a personal-best
time of 16.5 seconds in the high
hurdles, and Phillip Neuman,
who blazed to a personal-best
41.4 in the 300-meter hurdles.
For the girls, Francesca Hicks
shaved off a half second from her
previous best time as she ran the
100-ineter dash in 14 seconds.
She also won the triple jump with

an effort of 28 feet 6 inches.
St. Brendan brought a team
that was short in numbers but
long in heart.
"We don't have a track," said
sophomore Camille Romeu, who
won the 300 hurdles, defeating
Key West's Leah Moeller by four
seconds. "We practice in a park-
-ing lot and run around our gym.
We're not bad, we're just not in
shape and haven't had enough
Other Key West winners
included Mason Marshall, who
long-jumped 19 feet, 11 inches,
eclipsing the 19-6 he did last
week against Coral Shores in his
first attempt at the event.
Marshall also won the 400-meter
dash in 52.15 seconds, edging
Seve Llama.
In a photo finish, Llama
(11.92) edged Trey Key (11.93).

in the 100-meter dash. Key won
the 200-meter dash in 24.5. Mike
Eder won the 800 in 2.11, six sec-
onds ahead of teammate Shea
Hunter Potalivo, who set a
school record of 14 feet, 8.5 inch-
es last week in the pole vault,
failed to set another one but not
for lack of trying. He finally
came over to pose for a picture
with the rest of the seniors after a
meet-best vault of 13 feet, 6 inch-
For the girls, Gladys Brea won
the 200 and the high hurdles,
Courtney Walker won the 400,
nipping Karolina Nowak by less
than a second, and Dillon
McLean came in first in the 800.
The Conchs are off until April
12 when they compete in the
District 16-2A meet at De La

Lady Eagles wrap up tough season

Veterans set
to return
next season
Keynoter Staff

Island Christian School's
Lady Eagles wrapped up the
fast-pitch softball season this
week, putting the cap on a
rebuilding campaign.
The Eagles finished at 2-8,
both wins coming over
Redland Christian.
"The girls had a lot of fun
learning how to play the
game," Eagle coach Robert
Lucas said. "Now they have to
keep working during the off
season to get better."
Dominique Whitehead and
Karlee Kuersteiner are the
only senior starters graduating

off the squad, leaving a large
group of players with varsity
experience eligible to return.
The Lady Eagles showed
signs of improvement in field-
ing and hitting, Lucas said, but
pitching remains an open
"Any team that's doing well
has got a really good pitcher,"
Lucas said. "Having good
pitching gives you a chance to
get better at all the other
He noted, "The key is going
to be how well people work to
develop as fast-pitch pitchers.
That's the big difference
between teams."
Island Christian tried sev-
eral girls on the mound
throughout the season, with
Jennifer Subic emerging as

perhaps the strongest candi-
date to reach the level that
South Florida varsity play
"The girls also learned how
important it is to play strong
defense," Lucas said. "We
probably could have picked up
a couple more wins if we had

been consistent defensively."
Knowing the Eagles would
be rebuilding .this spring,
Island Christian did not com-
pete in state-district play. That
allowed the Eagles to schedule
more games against teams on a
similar level.
"We made some progress

this year, but we've still got a
way to go in some areas,"
Lucas said.
Players eligible to return
next year include regulars
Subic, Casey Willey, Jessica
Willey, Kate Dupre, Kelley
McDonald, Yana Byaznova
and Melanie Meroni.

Conchs win 4 of past 5

PITCHER/ From 19

improved the Conchs to 9-5
overall, 3-3 in district, and
avenged a 5-1 loss to St.
Brendan early this month.
Arencibia allowed a run in
the first inning, but the
Conchs came back with two
runs on RBI doubles by Kyle
Lepine and Louie Pazo. They
added three runs in the second
on a sacrifice fly by Michael
Arencibia (P.J.'s cousin) and
RBI singles by Lepine and
Raiko Alfonso.
The Sabres cut the lead to
5-3 on a two-run homer by
Thomas Prescott and then,
trailing 6-3, threatened to tie
the game when they opened
the sixth with three consecu-
tive singles. The next batter
hit a sacrifice fly to make it 6-
4 but Arencibia got the next
two hitters on a strikeout and a
grounder back to the mound.
Foltz came on to pitch a
scoreless seventh to send the
Conchs, who have won four of
their past five games, onto
their annual Spring Break trip
to Tampa.

That trip continues with a
game at 7 tonight at Nature
Coast Technical and concludes
at 7 p.m. Thursday with a
game at Zephyrhills.

mid %week made for some
happy, tailors despite the
rough seas. For the most
part. it has been a king
mackerel bite or yellotail
snapper to make the bulk of
the catches.

ESPN2's 'Billfish Extreme Release League' show.

Keys going to the Xtreme

Isaacs' league
here this week
to fish and film

Starting Thursday, ESPN2's
Billfish Xtreme Release League
is back in Marathon for a second
This starts the 2007 season for
the worldwide competition; it
ends Aug. 19 in the Dominican
Republic. In all, a total of six of
the finest billfishing destinations
in the world will see a total of 12
teams competing for the champi-
onship prize of $1 million.
.Key Largo resident Norm
Isaacs, creator of the-made-for-
TV league, knew conservation
would have to be the key to suc-
cess, a difficult task in this in-
your-face day of television.
Points are achieved not only
through a healthy release, but
also proper tag placement, the
use of circle hooks, and the
length of leader left attached to
the released billfish.
"I drove to Key West seven
years ago and role-played what I
thought would be the perfect bill-
fish tournament, and what I came
up with was what has now
become the BXRL," Isaacs said.
"Just watching past episodes,
viewers can see more excitement
and challenge to the release of
the marlin or sailfish than the sad
state of gaff hooking and
Last year in Marathon, the
fishing proved difficult, but local
knowledge proved tough to beat.
Capt. Paul Ross, sailfish
maestro on the Relentless out of

Cal Sutphin

I s 1 a-
was the
gun for
hire that
the inaugu-
r a 1
leg of the
the helm of
the 2006
boat, Team

Galati, Ross and his crew man-
aged 13 sailfish releases to take
the three-day event.
Hiring local talent is not a
new concept to the BXRL. Two
years ago out of the Mariners
Club in Key Largo, the event fea-
tured captains such as Alex
Adler, Ray Rosher and Charlie
Scoble, all tournament-winning
captains who seem to always be
around sailfish..
Asked whom he thinks has
the upper hand coming this. year,
Isaacs wisely sidesteps the ques-
"I'll tell you what, Paul Ross
is really hard to beat. Of course,
Alex Adler, who is running the
Cay Clubs boat, is no slouch, and
Team American has Capt. Ray
Rosher out of Miami who has
won the Keys leg of the BXRL
two out of the last three years.
Saying all of that, I would never
bet against Paul Ross."
The sailfish bite's been slow
of late. But Ross believes the fish
will turn on for the BXFL.
"We have a full moon coming
and. a lot of wind blowing 20

knots out the east/northeast,
which is common in the spring,
and it has to get the sailfish
going. It does every year. and I
expect no different on Friday.
The full moon helps pull the Gulf
Stream in closer and that is what
we need right now."
-Asked about the reception last
year in Marathon, Ross said, "It
was pretty quiet down there,
which I kind of enjoyed. Maybe
it's nice to come to the dock and
have a lot of people milling
around, but that wasn't the case
in Marathon."
This year, the organizers of
the BXRL want Marathon to
come out and support this nation-
al media event.
The 2006 season of the
Billfish Xtreme Release League
is airing on ESPN2 Sunday
mornings at 7:30. Isaacs says the
network is planning to air the
2007 season, which is now being
filmed, early in 2008.
You can get a sneak peak of
what is to come by stopping by
the Marathon Boatyard and
Marina on 11th Street to meet
and greet the teams, and Isaacs.

A sea change in conditions of the sea

S., fishing

Warmer weather's
bringing in dolphin,
other summer fish
We're near the end of the
month and for the most part,
March was a lamb.
We didn't have the high winds
all month or strong nasty fronts
that are normal for March. But
we did have a season change, not
only the official first day of
spring last week, but also what
seemed to be a switch from win-
ter to summer. The first part of
the month, water and air temper-
atures were down, and now it is
summer-like conditions. Fishing
has reacted accordingly.
With the rapidly warming
water, mackerel have seemingly
fled from most of the ocean and
nearby bay waters. They are still
scattered around but not in the
numbers we have seen. This
departure should only continue in
the next few weeks, so if you still
want to catch some, you had bet-
ter get to it.
The same has been somewhat
true for the kingfish along the
reef as well as the nearby Gulf
waters. They have been thinning
out quite noticeably as of late.
Still, reports of fairly good action
continue along the reef, although
most of the activity is actually up
on the patch reefs rather than off
the edge in the deeper waters.
Sailfish action has slowed
somewhat, as well, but don't let
that fool you. We almost always
have a big surge of spring sails
when we get a certain weather
pattern set up, which is more than

.. li k ely

_is common-
f ly called a
High, a very
large high-
system that
Dave Navarro anchors
itself near
Bermuda. It usually last several
days and creates strong sharp seas
along theedge of the reef.
This causes what is called tail-
ing conditions for the sailfish. It
is known as the best bite of the
season for sailfish in the area.
Additionally, it also causes sea
conditions that make most, shall
we say, less-experienced anglers
resemble a chameleon. It con-
tributes to the rumor that all sail-
fish are named Ralph because
that is what you keep hearing
from the anglers seeking them.
With all of the winter fish
leaving or at least thinning some-
what, you may ask what is in
now. Well, I can tell you we have
almost missed the spring change
of a few species moving in a little
at a time. They just showed up in
All but the dolphin are in, just
like it is a few months from now,
and even the dolphin are around
in numbers that are generally
noted as two to three times as
many as this date normally has.
Offshore, wahoo and tunas are
thick and large. Dolphin are

around but not in concentrations
along weed lines like they will be
later in the year.
Moving around and covering
ground will cause you ,to find
more of them than those that just
troll one line for a length of time.
High-speed lures are by far the
most beneficial way to make con-
tact with the scattered schools
that are around now.
For additional information
about how to rig for these off-
shore species now and in the
coming weeks, stop by our free
fishing seminar at our outdoor
amphitheater at our Marine
Educational Center at mile mark-

er 50 bayside this Thursday at
6:30 p.m. We have special guest
who will cover different tech-
niques for offshore fishing, rig-
ging and tackle, as well as what to
look for.
Just last week, reef and bridge
fishing was very difficult, with
the strong winds and the associat-
ed strong currents. Now, both
venues are much more docile and
coincidentally much more pro-

Tarpon around the bridges in

the evenings as well as the morn-
ings are becoming almost red-
hot. It almost looks like May out
there now.
Bay fishing for mangrove
snapper has been quite active, so
much so that if you travel out at
least 5 miles to the tall grass beds,
you would not have any trouble-
catching your limit in only a few
hours. That's if you brought some
good chum with you. If you did-
n't, you wasted a trip.
