Gas prices burn


-Keys businesses


Charters, taxis,/
others feel pinch
at the pump
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Gas prices keep rising, a cost
that comes directly from the
pocket of many Florida Keys
business owners.
"You can't keep raising your
prices to cover gas cost," said
Paul Johnson, captain of the off-
shore boat Reef Runner from


Whale Harbor Marina in
Islamorada.
"Chartering a boat already is
pretty expensive," Johnson said.
"It hasn't been a great year for
charters, so you have to be care-
ful not to price yourself out of
business."
On a smaller but no less real
scale, independent drivers at
Friendly Cab of Marathon feel
the squeeze.
"We can't change the mileage
rates," said Eric Chezum, owner

paperwork just to be sure I could
stay. But I hope I don't have to."
She says her FEMA field rep-
resentative has assured her she
will not have to relocate for the
brief interim between the dead-


line and the issuance of a certifi-
cate of occupancy for her new
home. -
"Because of the incredible
efforts by groups like the
Paradise Interfaith Network
working alongside FEMA and
local governments," Homstad
said, "there is no need for an
extension" on the deadline.


FEMA's donation program
allows some nonprofit groups to
accept trailers as donations to
house hurricane victims for up to
one year after Tuesday's dead-
line.
Statewide, FEMA provided

and general manager of the nine-
car fleet. "With two companies in
town, that would set off a price
war. So it's coming out of our
pockets and the drivers' pockets."
Prices that have risen nearly
30 percent since Feb. 1 increase
the costs per taxi about $2,000
per year, Chezum estimated.
Independent drivers working a
12-hours shift are responsible for
paying gas costs, Chezum said,
"but under the circumstances, we
try to split it with them."
Earlier" this week, prices for
regular unleaded gas in Key West
ranged from a low of $2.939 a
gallon to $3.149 per gallon. The
lowest premium price was
$3.299 a gallon, according to
www.Automotive.com.
Prices in Key Largo more
closely tracked the national aver-
age. One station offered a low
price of $2.859 for regular
unleaded, and several offered it at
$2.899. Premium in Key Largo
ran from a low of $3.099 to
$3.209.
Statewide, regular unleaded
was selling for an average of
$2.933, with premium at $3!.235,
according to the American Auto-
mobile Association:
"A lot of people believe the
companies are raising the prices
before the Memorial Day holiday
and summer season, but it's not
that simple," said Gregg
Laskoski, communications direc-
tor for AAA South. "This is the
time of year prices go up. There
are a variety of reasons for that,
and we believe they're valid."
Some of the gasoline cost
reflects the current cost for crude
oil, Laskoski said.
Prices rise in the spring, he
said, because that is when
refineries reduce production so
they can switch from producing a
"winter blend" of gasoline to a

rising cost of gasoline by using portable tanks to fill his skiff, the

lighter burning "summer blend."
Federal law mandates the change.
"It's not like they flick a
switch. It's pretty complicated,"
he said. "Even though the refiner-
ies are producing less gasoline in
the spring, the demand has to be
met."
Since Feb. 1, when statewide
gasoline prices dipped below
$2.30 for regular unleaded, prices
have gone up about 60 cents per
gallon. Nationally, prices jumped
eight cents in the last two weeks,
according to Associated Press
reports.
That still is below the all-time
high state average of $3.065 for
regular unleaded, set last August
when gasoline shipments were
still limited by Hurricane


Katrina's damage to refineries.
"Many places had repair
issues and the damage was exten-
sive," Laskoski said. "The good
news is that repairs have been
made, and in some cases, refinery
capacities were increased.
There's now a greater capacity
[to produce gasoline] than there
was two or three years ago."
That means gas supplies
should not run short through the
summer season, he said.
"Having a four-stroke [out-
board] engine also probably
saves eight to 10 gallons on a trip
to Flamingo," Gargan said. "If
your engine is an old two-stroke
more than 10 or 12 years old,
you're probably buying a lot
more for gasoline."

A sign announcing the near completion of a new Border Patrol station in Marathon appeared
this past week. However, there is still work to be done on the $2 million-plus facility.

More expansion
planned at new
Marathon facility
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

A new sign now graces the
front of 3770 Overseas Highway
in Marathon, letting everyone
know the address will soon be
home to the busy Middle Keys
operations for U.S. Customs and
Border Enforcement, commonly
known as the Border Patrol.
Contractors are nearing com-
pletion of the first phase of more
than $2 million in renovations,
and Border Patrol agents should
be moving into the facility by
the beginning of May, building
owner Brian Schmitt said.
Officials at the Marathon
Border Patrol office, now on
Coco Plum Drive, and at the
Miami regional headquarters
would not return phone calls this
week for comment on the
progress.
However, Schmitt said the
three-year project still includes
the addition of a new building
behind the current structure that
will commence later this year.
Although the project has been a
labor of love for Schmitt, he said


it's not one he is eager to repeat.
"If I knew what I was getting
into on the front end, I probably
would've thought twice," said
Schmitt, a sometime developer
and owner of Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Real Estate.
"While the Border Patrol
people were very good to work
with, it's still a daunting govern-
ment bureaucratic process," he
added. "It's a very complicated
project, and everything is cus-
tom. Nobody is accustomed to
building those kinds of things
here."
Schmitt said the construction
includes bulletproof surfaces
and doors, steel mesh-reinforced
concrete walls, a dog kennel and
security system with several
cameras.
The patrol set up a permanent
Middle Keys operation at small
Coco Plum offices run by other
law enforcement agencies in
2001. The Marathon operation is
now acknowledged as one of the
busiest, if not the busiest, in
Florida.
Schmitt began working in
December 2004 to move the
agency into the building on a 10-
year lease, with building
improvements being reimbursed
by the agency.


In May 2005, the Marathon
City Council approved the
3,200-square-foot expansion to
the building, which also houses a
bread delivery company, but
prohibited its use as a detention
facility for migrants.
The total facility will likely
be close to 7,500 square feet,
Schmitt said.
The patrol almost moved into
another Schmitt-owned building
in Layton in 2001, but residents
feared a detention facility hous-
ing illegal immigrants would
impact the city's quality of life
and sued to halt the deal.
A few Marathon residents
spoke against the project during
council approval, particularly in
light of the site's close proximity
to the Marathon Community
Park. Schmitt said he hasn't
heard any negative comments
since construction began.
"I recognized that concern.
But essentially, there's already a
jail on park grounds," said
Schmitt, referring to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office deten-
tion center nearby.
"That's where government is,
in that part of town," he added.
"The [Florida] Highway Patrol,
Sheriff's Office, the jail, the
public utilities it's all right
there. I think it's in exactly the
right place."

Saturday morning, a Piper Aztec

headed to the Bahamas on a fish-

Lauderdale in the Atlantic
Ocean, killing all aboard.
Later that day, a pilot of a
U.S. Navy Blue Angels jet died
when his plane crashed into a
residential neighborhood during
an air show in South Carolina.
Lovell wouldn't comment on
any findings in his investigation
of the Cudjoe Key crash,

"There were several aspects
to it interviewing controllers,
going to the scene and looking at
the site, gathering information,"
Lovell said. "It involved the
[Florida] Fish and Wildlife

well as Monroe County Sheriff's

pull together and get information

The Sheriff's Office was the

with a steel cable tethering a

Investigators are now recov-

Cessna aircraft that struck a mil-
itary radar blimp cable on
Cudjoe Key, killing all three
occupants Friday night.
The fatal crash was the first
of three that occurred within
hours of each other on the East
Coast over the weekend.
Combined, there were nine
deaths.
National Transportation
Safety Board investigator John
Lovell said it might take six to
eight months for results of the
Keys investigation to be
released, but the next step is just
to get the plane out of the shal-
low bay where it crashed.
"Right now, the wreckage is
being recovered and it will be
taken some place to take a closer
look," said Lovell, who is based
in Miami. "It will probably leave
the Keys, but I'm not sure
where."
.Lovell, the only investigator
handling the case, said the inves-
tigation could be hampered by
his agency's workload.

The Sheriff's Office reported
that employees at the blimp site
said cameras, which are fixed
onto the blimps, recorded the
plane hitting the cable and possi-
bly the blimp itself. There was
no reported damage to the blimp.
According to the U.S. Air
Force Web site, air space around
the aerostat sites is restricted for
a radius of at least two to three
miles and an altitude up to
15,000 feet.
The Cudjoe Key aerostat site
was the first such site, estab-
lished in December 1980. There
are now seven other active sites
in the U.S. and Puerto Rico that
operate low-level surveillance
for counter-drug and air sover-
eignty missions.

Known as imposter domains,
such bogus Web sites- attempt to

Death called avoidable


Some have tried
in the past to
slow PWC riders
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The death Sunday of a
Minnesota man on a rented per-
sonal watercraft is the sad result
of an ongoing problem, accord-
ing to some locals.
Rickey L. McMurrin, 49, was
pronounced dead at the scene
after he collided about 2 p.m.
with a tree branch in a north Boca
Chica canal, one of seven known
.locally as the sub pens.
McMurrin and a passenger,
unnamed in a report from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, were
part of a tour group with the
Reach Resort in Key West. The
passenger escaped injury.
"It's a safety issue," tropical-
fish collector Charles "'Jamie"
Jamison said. "You put up a dive
flag and they run right past you."
Jamison, a Big Pine Key resi-
dent, says he has been collecting
in the area for 45 years, and the
personal-watercraft traffic is
increasing.
Don DeMaria, also a fish col-
lector, says he and his colleagues
have tried for a year to avoid
what he said was an accident
waiting to happen.
"We went to the county to put
up signage," the Summerland
Key resident said. "The county
put up a no-wake sign but it was


torn down in no time. I o

At the same time, Jamison

to slow the riders down.
Both collectors said personal-
watercraft tour guides take their
clients into the area, and that

Keys Opinion


With higher gas prices,

there are ways to save

If you drive a car or run a boat or have any other use for gaso-
line, your wallet is feeling lighter these days.
As Senior Staff Writer Kevin Wadlow ard fishing columnist
Dave Navarro point out in today's Keynoter, gas prices have
once again gone through the roof.
Some gas-station signs are already joking, "Regular, an arm;
premium, a leg; ultra, your first-born."
The American Automobile Association reports that through-
out Florida, regular gasoline was going for an average of
$2.933 a gallon. Oh, .if only such prices were available
Keyswide, where everything costs more than anywhere else
statewide. That $2.9333 would look downright inexpensive
down here.
Wadlow writes that "since Feb. 1, when statewide gasoline
prices dipped below $2.30 for regular unleaded, prices have
gone up about 60 cents per gallon. Nationally, prices jumped 8
cents m the last two weeks, according to Associated Press
reports."
On the fishing front specifically a lifeblood of our tourist
economy Navarro writes, "I feel for those who just got their
28- to 32-footer with the three big engines on the back so they
could be on the dolphin in seconds. Sounded like a grand idea
about $2 a gallon ago, didn't it?"
It's a problem we face every year around'this time, and the
explanations from the pundits and so-calldd experts are always
the same: Either something happened in the Middle East to
jack the price of a barrel of oil, or it's the annual gasoline price
explosion when the summer driving season gets near (yes, in
areas where it's not sunny and warm virtually every day, there
is such a thing as driving season).
Look a few months from now, and the prices will likely have
dropped. It happens every year.
But for now, the charter fishermen, cab drivers, pizza deliv-
ery folks and anyone else who relies on gas to make a living -
and that includes those who just drive to work --is fairly hurt-
mng.
To get us through the difficult time before we see the prices
fall and they will there are some things you can do to
ease the crunch:
When possible, use public transportation. Keyswide, we
now have a good system with the JGT and Key West city buses
linking all the islands.
When possible, carpool. Few do it, but it's a good way to
get to know your co-workers outside the office as well as save
money.
When possible, either walk or ride your bike to your desti-
nation. It saves money, and goes a long way toward raising
your wellness factor.
Oh, and if you're in the market for a new vehicle, think
hybrid.

County takes lead in preventing fetal alcohol problems


EDITOR:
On behalf of the approximately 750 children
born each year in Monroe County, I would like to
thank the Monroe County Commission for its
unanimous vote April 18 to pass a countywide
ordinance requiring that all establishments that
sell alcohol post a sign warning of the risks to an
unborn child when a pregnant woman consumes
alcohol.
In so doing, Monroe County is the first county
in Florida to take such a proactive stance toward
prevention of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
National statistics show that one in 100 kids
are born with spectrum disorders, an umbrella
term that covers disorders such as fetal alcohol
syndrome and alcohol-related neurodevelopmen-
tal disorder, at a cost to society of up to $5 mil-
lion per affected child.
Even a small to moderate amount of alcohol
consumed by a pregnant woman can result in
lifelong effects such as learning disabilities,
developmental delays, memory deficit, hyperac-
tivity, sensory integration problems, abnormal
cognitive functioning, behavior problems and
impaired judgment.
The good news is that fetal alcohol spectral
disorders is 100 percent preventable, and this
ordinance is another step in educating pregnant
women and their families that drinking alcohol
can cause permanent brain damage to their child.


In a community with the highest rate of binge
drinking in the state, it is necessary to balance the
fun of partying with responsibility.
Fifty percent of pregnancies are unplanned
and many women do not know they are pregnant
by the time the baby is fully formed (eight
weeks). The message is simple: If you are preg-
nant, don't drink; if you drink, don't get preg-
nant. This is a small sacrifice to make to ensure-
that a child is born free from the effects of prena-
tal alcohol exposure, compared to the sacrifice of
18-plus years of caring for a child born with
these issues.
Through a partnership between the Florida
Keys Healthy Start Coalition and the Florida
Center for Child and Family Development,
assessments are available in Monroe County to
determine if a child may have fetal alcohol spec-
tral disorders. This assessment is very helpful for
parents, educators and other care-givers to know
how best to teach and support a child with such
disorders to reach their maximum potential.
For further information on the warning signs,
fetal alcohol spectrum disorders or a confidential
assessment, call the Florida Keys Healthy Start
Coalition at 293-8424.

Universities can contribute more to the states


EDITOR:
We are starting to refer to our society and our
economy as a knowledge society and a knowl-
edge economy. Public universities are the real
knowledge centers in many of our states. The
land-grant universities [schools designated by
the government for special federal support] in
our states have long had extension services,
which reach out to the people in the state and
provide them with help and services in many
fields, including agricultural services, youth
issues and other areas.
The extension-service model of university
public service outreach could be used as an
example that all public, tax-supported universi-
ties should be required to follow as part of their
mission through the budgeting and funding
process.
People at public universities are state-paid
knowledge workers and we should ask, or
require, that they become more involved in both
the health and welfare of the state and the health
and welfare of the people in the state. Health-
related schools and colleges in our universities
should become more involved in helping to keep
the people in the state fit and healthy.
People in the business, engineering and law
schools could do more to keep the governmental,
nonprofit and business units in the state healthi-
er, more competitive and more profitable. The
other schools and colleges in our universities
could find other-ways to contribute to the health
and well-being of the state, its organizations and
its people.
Things that public universities are doing well
in one state should be creatively imitated in other


states. Creative imitation is better than invitation
and should be utilized as much as possible.
America and its states have a unique and
high-quality higher education system that no
other country can match but that a number of
other countries are trying to copy. We should
work to develop new and worthwhile ways to
make this knowledge system work even better
for both our states and our country.
One of the secrets to success is to build on
and fully utilize your strengths. Public universi-
ties are great assets and new ways should be
developed to encourage them to contribute more
to benefit the state and its people.

What were they thinking?


EDITOR:
As do many others, I feel acts of
stupidity should be painful, painful
enough that you learn a lesson from
doing dumb things. I also believe it
should really hurt when elected offi-
cials do dumb things with taxpayer
money.
Our fiduciary responsibility and
role as county commissioners is pretty
clear prudent, responsible and
appropriate use and budgeting of tax-
payer money. And if someone gets his
or her feelings hurt when another
points out the stupidity of the mistake,
so be it. As Harry S Truman said, if
you can't stand the heat, get out of the
kitchen.
+ What Were You Thinking Act
No. 1: Two county commissioners
knowingly support buying the
Hickory House.
The Hickory House is a restaurant
that sits on .56 acres on the water in
downtown Stock Island. The restau-
rant is referred to as a legal non-con-
forming structure with inadequate
parking and inappropriate setbacks. It
has no bay bottom ownership, no slip
space to speak of, no boat ramp and
was purchased with $3.1 million of
taxpayer money.
The "what I was thinking reason"
for the "what were you thinking act"
was providing public access to the
waterfront.


To put this in perspective, more
than 10 acres was purchased with 26
development rights for just more than
$2 million a couple of years prior
using Florida Communities Trust
money a park on the water that
will truly provide public access.
The Boot Key Harbor marina in
Marathon, which sits on four acres of
land with bay bottom ownership and
hundreds of feet of dock and slip
space, was purchased by the county
for a little over $1 million, truly a
place that provides public access to
the water.
+ What Were You Thinking Act
No. 2: $2 million of taxpayer money
used from the inappropriate fund
called 304 money, which is to address
wastewater infrastructure or afford-
able housing you know, real
important stuff. But it gets spent on
another questionably appropriate proj-
ect, sinking a ship 7 miles off Key
West.
It is important everyone recognize
I did not say the people involved are
stupid because I don't think that to be
the case -I said the acts were stupid.
Hopefully proposals to correct the
"what were you thinking" acts will
fly. However, we may be waiting for
pigs to fly.

I know that during such an emer-

was important to my boss [State Attorney

guess $500 is the price to kill an endan-

Three die on Keys roads


Keynoter Staff


A double fatality on the 18-
Mile Stretch Monday afternoon
brought to 10 the number of high-
way deaths south of Florida City
since the beginning of the year.
The two deaths followed a
Saturday crash of a motorcyclist
who died after his bike slammed
into a front-end loader in Key
West after apparently reaching
speeds in excess of 100 mph.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Monday's fatali-
ties happened due to a collision
between a passenger car and trac-
tor-trailer near mile marker 117
around 4 p.m. that shut the road,
causing traffic to be diverted to
Card Sound Road.
Troopers said a 2007
Chevrolet Impala was traveling
north when it crossed the center
line and struck the left side of a
southbound 2006 Ford tractor
trailer, forcing the semi onto the
shoulder, where it overturned.
After the collision, the semi


reportedly rotated into the path of
a 2005 Honda Accord, also trav-
eling south, and struck the car's
right rear.
A 2006 Jeep Cherokee fol-
lowed and apparently tried to
pass the Impala and semi on the
outside shoulder of the south-
bound lane and struck the
Impala's right front.
The driver of the Impala,
Doran F Boroski, and a passen-
ger, Karen E. Naleway, both 49,
were pronounced dead at the
scene by Miami-Dade Fire Lt.
Mary Giles, reports state. Their
hometowns were not available.
Highway Patrol spokesman
Lt. Pat Santangelo reported to the
Miami Herald that the Impala's
two other passengers, reportedly
from Illinois, were rushed to area
hospitals.
SA Miami-Dade Fire spokes-
man told the Herald the driver of
the semi was sent to Mariners
Hospital in Tavemier with non-
life threatening injuries. The driv-
ers of the Jeep and Honda were


reportedly treated on the.,scene.

Motorcycle death
Frederick Paul Carson, 27, of
Boca Raton was pronounced
dead at the scene when he
crashed his Suzuki 1000 into a
front-end loader on South
Roosevelt Boulevard around. 4
p.m. Saturday.
According to both Key West
police and the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, Carson was
clocked at more than 100 mph by
a deputy at the Bahia Honda
Bridge and others he passed on
his way south to Key West.
Police spokeswoman Christie
Phillips said when he got to Key
West, he took a left onto South
Roosevelt Boulevard, passing a
Key West motorcycle officer at
more than 100 mph.
At the road construction site
near the Seaside complex, Carson
veered into the construction area
and hit the front-end loader. He
likely died on impact, Phillips
said.

College kick-starts marketing effort


" By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


During the Florida Keys
Community College board's
meeting last week, President-
elect Jill Landesberg-Boyle
passed around glossy recruitment
brochures revealing pictures of
studious co-eds cheerfully inter-
acting on campuses like Valencia
and Palm Beach community col-
leges.
Then she showed what the
Keys college mails out for
recruitment, and the reaction was
less than exhilarating.
The bland application form is


semi-annual
semi-annua -


one of many things Landesberg-
Boyle wants to change in her new
marketing plan to increase enroll-
ment for the college.
Enrollment of full-time equiv-
alent students for the college for
2005-06 was 775. Three years
earlier, in 2002-03, the count was
940, according to college
records.
That decline is something
Landesberg-Boyle is determined
to reverse.
"I think we can change the
financial stability of the college,"
she said.
Her proposal: approve fund-
ing a marketing project to be
spearheaded by Stamats, a high-
er-education marketing company.
The project would include meas-
ures like hiring a photographer
and producing more engaging
brochures.
Recently reappointed board
member Ed Scales was apprehen-
sive to passing the motion that
would've kick-started the mar-
keting campaign due to one sim-
ple, but large question: Where
exactly is the target audience?
Because of concerns like
Scales', the board decided to
approve the initial stages of the


plan only up to $32,400 to
include workshops in which
Scott Linzey of Stamats would
travel down to the Stock Island
campus and help map out where
the marketing focus should be -
which cities, counties and states.

Other issues
Also at the April 17 meeting,
Scales gave an update on the
affordable housing situation for
the college's future.
He recently met with state
Department 'of Community
Affairs officials-and discussed
the possibility of building dormi-
tories along allotted land. To do
this, Key West would need
exemptions to height and density
rules, as well as the rate-of-
growth ordinance that dictates
the number of building permits
allotted based on hurricane evac-
uation times, according to college
spokeswoman Lydia Estenoz.
Also at the meeting, new
appointee Key Largo dive cap-
tain Spencer Slate was formally
sworn in by the board.
Gov. Charlie Crist reappointed
Scales, a Key West city commis-
sioner from 2001 to 2005, and
appointed Slate.
They will both serve to May
31, 2010.

County waives


development fees


Projects must
strictly adhere
to affordability
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


In a move to create incentives
to build affordable housing, the
'Monroe County Commission last
week approved waiving permit
and application fees to develop-
ers building such housing.
"I am for the waiver of permit
fees," contractor Rudy Krause
said. "The reason why affordable
housing [construction] is not
going on right now is that it costs
more than they can sell it for."
"It is imperative that we do
this," said Ed Swift, a Key West
businessman and developer.
The commission split on the
decision with commissioners
Sylvia Murphy and George
Neugent opposed. Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro and commissioners
Sonny McCoy and Dixie Spehar
voted for the waivers.
Murphy argued waivers
would increase permit fees for
other county applicants.
"The Building Department
depends on those fees," she said.
"What you're doing is waiving
the fee for a builder while at the
same time increasing the costs for
people coming in for normal
building permits."
"Somebody has to pay. for the
administration," Neugent said.
"Somebody's got to pick up that
cost."
"This is government not by
the people for the people, but
government by the developers for
the developers," Key Largo resi-
dent Ron Miller said.
In February, the commission
opposed the blanket waiver,
though in the past it has approved
waivers on a case-by-case basis.
Additionally, the county has
added language to its building
code to waive permitting fees
when an affordable project is
receiving financial assistance
from the county.
Developers taking advantage
of the new waiver must qualify
under the county's guidelines for
affordable housing.
"As a builder, I look at the
waiving of the fees as impera-


tive," Swift said.
He said permit fees can add
thousands of dollars to the
expense of building each unit,
which drives prices up and makes
it harder for a developer to stay
within the county's strict parame-
ters for affordability.
Swift added that now that
most new affordable housing is
modular construction, all of the
plans and engineering reviews
are done at the state level, putting
less strain on county staff. He
noted, too, that many state grants
look favorably on local-govern-
ment fee waivers.
Norma Jean Sawyer-Atanda,
executive director of the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust,
Florida's first land trust, agreed
with Swift.
"Everyone asks if the county
or city waives fees," she said.
"The developers are your part-
ners and without them, nothing
will happen."

Avael now on manager list


NAS spokesman
Brooks also
is interested
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Tonight at 6 p.m. at the next
meeting of the Key West city
manager search committee,
member Scott Fraser is expect-
ed to object to City Manager
Julio Avael adding his name to
the list of applicants for his
own job.
Avael was one of four peo-
ple who threw their hats in the
ring Friday, the panel's dead-
line to apply.
Another ear-perking con-
tender: Naval Air Station Key
West spokesman Jim Brooks.
Avael is set to retire in
November. But Mayor Morgan
McPherson wants to fire him
sooner, citing Friday's arrest
of Assistant City Manager
John Jones on two misde-
meanor counts of signing cer-
tificates of occupancy without
a state license.


Friday's addition of four
new names to the manager
candidate list brought the total
number of applicants to 136.
Of that, the top 25 applicants
are expected to be narrowed to
15 at tonight's meeting.
City Engineer Roland
Flowers was another last-
minute applicant, though he
scored a combined 6 points
based on minimal criteria,
missing the amount of points
to qualify by a nose. That does
not count him out completely,
however, as any committee
member can add one applicant
to the final list from those who
didn't make the initial cut.
Commenting as a commit-
tee member and not his usual
role of media spokesman for
the committee, Fraser said his
objection to Avael's applica-
tion stems from a desire to rid
the meetings of potential
"politicizing."
Avael appointed two com-
mittee members: Toni Gage of
the Finance Department and
Key West Police Chief Bill


Mauldin.
Fraser said Avael's candida-
cy could place those members
"between a rock and a hard
place."
With the exception of
Avael, Fraser said the other
new applicants, including
Brooks, were considered and
reviewed closely by the com-
mittee.
"I think I have something to
offer," Brooks said. He added
that other applicants he knows
would also make great city
managers. "We've spent our
entire careers in public serv-
ice."
Brooks scored 7 points out
of the possible 10 for meeting
the committee's minimum cri-
teria, which is:
Ten years senior manage-
ment in city, county, state or
federal governmental experi-
ence, with three years oonsis-
tent employment and proven
leadership with a medium or
large organization.
Management experience
in a resort or tourism area.
Experience with emer-
gency preparedness and/or dis-
aster management.
Bachelor's degree, mas-
ter's preferred.
In-depth involvement in
civic organizations.
Fraser denied Brooks the
point for civic organizations
- a point Brooks believed was
well deserved, as he is a mem-
ber of the Rotary and ex-mem-
ber of the Key West
Ambassadors.
"It's kind of like being back
in college taking exams and
not getting credit for some-
thing you got right," Brooks
said, adding, "They [the com-
mittee] have a challenge and I
have a lot of respect for them."
The top 25 candidates whit-
tled from the 136 overall
applicants are Avael, Brooks,
David Anderson, Lester Baird,
Keith Bergman, Gretchen
Black, Matthew Brock, Hector
Chavez, Thomas Christie,
Felix Cooper (a former Key
West city manager), Larry

Richard Finn, Edward

New information on Jones emerges


DCF says agency
needed to operate
following Wilma
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keypoter.com

Assistant Key West City
Manager John Jones' arrest on
two counts of falsely imperson-
ating a certificate holder is
reverberating through the com-
munity.
"It seems to me that he
would be the last person taken
on a perp walk," resident
Rosanne Potter said. "I think in
his case, it was exaggerated.
It's just the wrong the thing to
do. He's a wonderful man."
Jones helped Potter when the
White Street Pier was closed
from damage due to Hurricane
Wilma. Potter and other resi-
dents" were distressed by its
closing, as it was a daily rou-
tine for them to walk down the
pier to watch sunrises.
"I gave him a pretty hard
time and he was always so
decent about it," Potter said.
"He was excessively genteel."
Jones declined specific to
comment on his arrest, which
stemmed from him signing cer-
tificates of occupancy for the
Rum Barrel restaurant and a
state Department of Children
and Families office.
But he did reveal letters and
e-mails that indicate which por-
tions of the buildings were
incomplete and why he
believed it was imperative the
certificates be signed.
Jones signed a certificate of
occupancy for DCF Jan. 17,
2006, which was allegedly
before all of the facility's defi-
ciencies were addressed. DCF's
previous offices were flooded
by Hurricane Wilma and
"inhabitable," according to
Flora Beal, agency director of
communications for Miami-
Dade and Monroe counties.
Jim Malcolm, Americans
with Disabilities Act coordina-
tor for Key West, wrote that
handrail extensions on the
mobile home's ramp varied in
length and that there was "no
accessible route connecting the
facilities to the public sidewalk
or other accessible buildings on
the site."
Jones hand-wrote a state-
ment claiming this was the rea-


son that Joe April, then the city
building official, refused to
sign the document, but that all
other inspections were com-
plete.
"I know April to be a by-the-
book type person," City
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
said. "I also understand why he
didn't want to get involved."
According to Lopez, Jones'
actions were strictly to help
people caught in an emergency.
"I see no need for action to
be taken against Jones," he
said.
"It would have taken weeks
to do this," Jones wrote in an
explanatory note on an e-mail
sent from Malcom, adding that
DCF "desperately needs] to
occupy the facility."
"I made an executive deci-
sion...," he added.
Jones told the Keynoter,
"This was for the welfare of
families and children" and that
his arrest was "very hurtful."
In a written statement, DCF
District Administrator Elena
Herrera said, "We did go
through the regular application
for the permit in the inspection
process. We were trying to pro-
vide very needed services for
the Key West community and
Mr. Jones and Mr. Avael were
very responsive to that..."
"Our building was totally
destroyed," Beal added.
"Basically, the building was
closed down. It was inhabitable
and that's when we applied for
temporary trailers to house our
staff and continue services in
the community."
Jones' other charge, which
came as a result from a certifi-
cate he signed for the Rum
Barrel Feb. 3, 2006.
Jones apparently received
pressure from Marc Cerceo,
chief operating officer for Pat
Croce's Rum Barrel and Pirate
Soul, to open the Rum Barrel
prematurely.
"John, we really need to
work together on this project
now," Cerceo wrote. "This is a



Subscriptions

significant investment for us
but also a significant invest-
ment in Key West. We have
done everything asked of us by
Joe [April] and his staff..."
Jones signed the certificate


of occupancy so the Health
Department could make its
inspection and for the state to
issue the restaurant its liquor
license, Jones wrote in an
explanatory note.


Jones doesn't anticipate any-
thing changing with his current
employment situation.
His arraignment is set for 9
a.m. May 9 before Judge
Wayne Miller.

By GEORGIA TASKER

Pine trees, coral reefs, tourism
and our drinking water supply are
under the gun of climate change.
The warming of the planet
means Florida, with 1,200 miles
of heavily populated and vulnera-
ble coastline, is feeling real-time
effects that are foreshadowing
bigger consequences:
Sea levels are rising twice
as fast as once predicted, eroding
shorelines.
Higher temperatures are
shifting tropical conditions far-
ther north.
Oceans are more acidic.
+ Seas are hotter.
Droughts may be increas-
ing, while periods of intense rain-
fall are farther apart.
While the long-range effects
are likely to affect our grandchil-
dren, the near-term effects are
whittling away at our environ-
ment with the power of spring
tides.
As evidence mounts that the
earth is warming faster than once
predicted, Florida is finally start-
ing to focus on the issue.
A conference May 9 to 11 in
Tampa will look at the latest
research and make recommenda-
tions to policymakers. And those
policymakers may be ready to lis-
ten.
In his recent State of the State
address, Gov. Charlie Crist called
climate change "one of the most
important issues that we will face


this century.
"With almost 1,200 miles of
coastline, and the majority of our
citizens living near that coastline,
Florida is more vulnerable to ris-
ing ocean levels and violent
weather patterns than any other
state," he said.
Florida's exposure to danger
also was noted by the scientists
working on the United Nations
Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change, which has iden-
tified key areas of vulnerability.
"Florida is the only state men-
tioned because of the vulnerabili-
ty of the coast and the infrastruc-
tire that will be exposed to more
intense storms," said Virginia
Burkett, coordinator of global
change science for the U.S.
Geological Survey.
Sea levels are rising twice as
fast as early computer models
predicted, says Brian Soden, cli-
mate change scientist at the
University of Miami's Rosenstiel
School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science. New cal-
culations are estimating a three-
foot rise by the end of this centu-
ry, he said.
The Florida Keys, just a few
feet above sea level, are the most
vulnerable. Since 1930, the ocean
has risen about nine inches
around Key West, says Harold
Wanless Jr., a geologist with the
University of Miami. That island
city lies an average of six feet
above sea level.


"It's running right at a foot per
century, and we're 75 years into
it," Wanless said.
On barrier islands such as
Keys, a one-foot rise could put
water 200 to 2,000 feet inland,
Wanless says.
Beneath the Keys, a lens of
fresh water covers the saltwater.
As the seas rise, they push the
fresh water up, especially in
times of drought. As the saltwater
rises, the roots of trees that thrive
in fresh water are then in saltwa-
ter.
On Sugarloaf Key, ghostly
pine stumps sit like grave mark-
ers among salt-tolerant button-
woods, bearing witness to the
insistent upward push of salt
water.
Salt-sensitive pines have
migrated to the highest ground on
Big Pine Key, says Mike Ross,
ecologist at the Southeast
Environmental Research Center
at Florida International
University.
Beginning May 9, scientists,
professors and politicians will
meet in Tampa for three days to
look for solutions for Florida.
Tom Crisman, with the Patel
Center for Global Solutions at the
University of South Florida and
co-chair of that conference, says
there is a lag time between when
we take action and when we get
an ecosystem reaction.
"If we were to stop all air con-
tamination now, we won't get
cleaned up for decades," he said.

Mission beautification Saturday


Chamber, city
working to get-
cleanup going

With the help of the Key
West Chamber of Commerce,
the city of Key West is working
to revive a beautification and
city-cleaning task force that
once thrived.
A cleanup of nearly two
dozen designated areas around
Key West will take place
Saturday, the first event of what
organizers are hoping will
become an ongoing citywide
beautification effort.
"The whole mission is to


really do one thing turn the
thought process of 'why don't
they do something about the
problem' to 'why don't we do
something about it,'" said Chris
Belland, co-chairman of the
chamber's beautification com-
mittee.
This Saturday's citywide
cleanup begins with an organi-
zational meeting at Bayview
Park at 8 a.m. Trash bags pro-
vided by the city will be distrib-
uted, and groups will be sent out
to various locations throughout
the city.
Twenty-one groups attended
a planning meeting held recent-


ly, and each mapped out an area
within the city to focus on clean
up efforts. Additional volunteers
are invited-to join one of the
groups this Saturday morning at
Bayview Park, or form groups
of their own.
"Bring a pair of gloves, and
we'll be providing the rest,"
Belland said. "We'll have cof-
fee, water and donuts, and we'll
be passing out the bags and trash
pickers for people to use."
Belland hopes as many as a
couple hundred people turn out
for the citywide cleanup, and
says continued support will be
essential to the chamber and city

West Task Force in 2001, but
the task force dissolved after
current Mayor Morgan
McPherson took office in 2005.
Initially sidetracked by having
to deal with the aftermath of
Hurricane Wilma, Belland said
the city's new administration is
now in better shape to help re-
organize beautification efforts.
"So many things took prece-
dence over the task force
around the time the new mayor
took over, and I think that's
mainly why it went to the back
burner," Belland said. "Mayor
McPherson is very supportive
of the efforts. He'll be there on
the 28th, and we want to make
sure the city gets its due credit
in helping organize and support
this effort."
Annalise Mannix, city
stormwater engineer, said the
Clean Key West Task Force
accomplished a great deal while
active years ago.
"Over the years it became an
organization that had a real
impact on the City
Commission, and helped make
some important improve-
ments," Mannix said. "We con-
vinced the city we needed an
additional code enforcement
officer, and also strengthened
and created several codes."
"We need a lot of volunteers
to help us pick up the ball from
where we dropped it," Mannix
said. "We're hoping our new
partnership with the chamber
will give us a great amount of
help from the business commu-
nity."
Those interested in getting
involved can join bi-weekly
meetings at City Hall, which
take place at noon on the sec-
ond and fourth Mondays each
month.

Belland at 292-8920, or e-mail

Big Coppitt pastor
readies for 31st swim
around Key West
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Bill Welzien met his match
Saturday.
After swimming 20 miles in
Tampa Bay and battling cold
water, 3- to 5-foot waves, a
headwind and a treacherous
tide, the captain of his support
boat told him it was too danger-
ous to continue.
"It was brutal out there,"
Welzien said Monday from his
daughter's home in Tampa. "To
my knowledge, of the 10 solo
swimmers who started the event,
only one completed the event.
There was also one death."
The Tampa Bay Marathon
Swim is a grueling 24 miles -
two miles more than the English
Channel. And though the water
is warmer, the temperature of
between 66 and 71 degrees can
be bone-chilling when you
spend more than 11 hours in it,
as Welzien did.
The swim, Welzien's longest
yet, leaves the Lower Keys min-
ister knowing he's ready for the
June 16 31st annual Swim
Around Key West.
"It will also be my 31st swim
around the island," he said,
Welzien is pastor of the Keys
Presbyterian Church on Big
Coppitt Key. He's also part fish.
He started swimming, he
said, in high school. Then 30
years ago he met Anna Fugina
Pennella, the woman who origi-
nally started the swim around
the island.
"Back then I thought half a
mile was far," he said, "In 1989,
I tried it and did it. Then I was
bitten by the bug."
That bug hit Welzien hard
this year; he set himself a goal
of swimming around Key West
12 times.
He's already completed 10 of
those swims, and the race in
June will be the 12th in his
"self-imposed challenge."
He said part of the incentive
to set such a challenge was
shoulder surgery last March.
With his surgeon's blessing, he
began swimming the 12.5-mile

On the last leg of the swim around Key West, Bill Welzien passes under the Cow Key Channel
Bridge that connects Key West with Stock Island. Bill Welzian says once a swimmer gets to Cow
Key Channel, he or she loses any tidal push he or she might have enjoyed on the eastern end
of the island.


circumnavigation again in July.
A few years ago, Welzien
took over the job of organizing
the annual swim. Nowadays, he
says it's an easy feat to figure a
start time based upon the tide
tables.
"Every year the field grows,"
he said. "It suffered in 2000
because of the water-quality
scare. But we had 18, then 38,
then 58 last year. We expect 75,
100 participants this year."
The swim starts at Smather's
Beach and proceeds clockwise
past Fort Zachary Taylor, around
through Key West Harbor, and
back through Cow Key Channel.
The race kicks off at 8:45 a.m.
Welzien's athleticism does
not exist in a vacuum: His wife
and nine children are all run-
ners.
His eldest daughter, Abigail,
married a runner, Terrence
White, who just added last
week's Boston Marathon to his
list of three completed
marathons. Most local race
results show many of his other
kids still school-age plac-
ing in the top of their age class-
es.


"We do handicap runs," That really got their minds
Welzien said. "We've been around this running."

it was a big boost for the kids. See SWIM / 21

7 Conchs head to state


But for Canes,
track season
comes to an end
By DICK WAGNER
and KEVIN WADLOW
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The track behind Key West
High School, usually bursting
with activity on spring after-
noons, looked almost deserted
Monday afternoon. It gets that
way in late April, with the state
meet only days away.
For most of the Conch track
and field athletes, the season is
over.
Only the elite remain, and
those seven seniors looked
almost lonely as they worked
out Monday in preparation for
the 2A championships Friday
and Saturday at Showalter
Field in Winter Park.
Training on one side of the
track, with assistant coach Rick
Ridenour, were discus thrower
Caitlin Holubar and pole
vaulters Hali Lombardi and
Hunter Potalivo.
Across the way, with head
coach Dave Perkins, were the
sprinters Marcus Bolden,
Mason Marshall, Brian Silva
and Keith Durden. They will
compete in the 4x400 relay and
Bolden will also be in the 400-
meter run.
All seven qualified for the
state meet at last Friday's
regional meet at Belen Jesuit in
Miami. Lombardi and Holubar


will be in the state meet for the
second consecutive year.
Lombardi won the regional
title with a personal-best vault
of 11 feet and just missed at 11-
7, which would have been a
school record.


"I had the run and the drive,"
she said. "I hit the bar on the
way down."
She hopes to break the
school record this weekend in
an event expected to be won by
defending champion Daisy
Glasser of Episcopal, who
cleared 12-6 last year.


Potalivo was third in the
regional meet with a vault of 13
feet. Earlier this season, he set a
school record of 14-8.5.
"I expect both vaulters to
medal in the top four at the
state meet," Perkins said.

Hoping to ease the pressure
of facing a possible end to its
season, the Key West High
School baseball team is
approaching this afternoon's


District 16-4A semifinal contest
with Belen Jesuit as if it's just a
"normal" game.
"I think you have to," said

team lost to Belen, 13-3 and 6-2,

Season likely over for Island Christian baseball


Seven errors
doom the Eagles
in 10-5 defeat
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Since most of his players
have been around for a while,
Island Christian coach Tony
Hammon said, it's easy to forget
how young they are..
"We've been saying it for a
couple years now but it's still
true: This is a very young team,"
Hammon said as the season
apparently ended Monday.
The Eagles were stopped in
the District 16-A semifinal
game, falling 10-5 to.the Lions
of Champagnat Catholic.
Youth seemed to cost the
Eagles, as the club committed
seven errors two during a
five-run inning by Champagnat
- to put themselves in trouble
after taking the early lead.
"There are innings where our

safe, and the Eagles fell, 10-5, in a district semifinal.


guys get tight," Hammon said.
"We need to relax and learn how
to have fun out there."
Island Christian planned to
hold low-key practices this week
since there was an outside
chance that defending district
and state champion Brito Private
could be sidelined by an admin-
istrative ruling from the Florida


Black finishes 8th


TRACK / From 22

Holubar was also third last
week but her discus throw of
113-feet, 4.5 inches was a per-
sonal best and just shy of the
school record of 113-9. The
state meet will likely be her last
competition; she is going to
Newberry College, which does
not have a track team.
"I want a medal and I want
the school record," said
Holubar, seeded sixth.
Bolden, recovering from a
hamstring injury, ran the 400 in
49.28 seconds to finish second
in the regional meet, and the
4x400 team of Bolden,
Marshall, Silva and Durden
placed third in 3:25.
"Barring injury, Marcus
would have probably been the
best all-around sprinter I have
coached," Perkins said.
"Unfortunately, injuries have
prevented him from breaking
records. I expect him to be in
the top four" this weekend.

Coral Shores
Coral Shores senior Richard
Black finished eighth in the


two-mile run at the Region 4-
2A Track and Field Meet, held
Friday in Miami.
Black's finish, with a time of
10 minutes, 42 seconds, was
the highest of the Hurricane
track contingent that qualified
for regional competition.
No one from Coral Shores
earned a spot in the state meet.
Erin Fry ran a 5:57.19 for a
No. 11 finish in the 1,600
meters at regional.
Arianna Soares ran a 51.95-
second time in the girls' 300
hurdles, good for the No. 12 at
regional.
Both Hurricane boys relay
teams that advanced to the
regional finished 12th.
The 4x100 team (Manuel
Gonzalez, Jason Soares, Rob
Howard, Randell Jackman)
sprinted to a 46.12-second
time.
The 4x800 team (Nick
Blankenship, Black, Gabriel
Suarez, Tyler Boban) ran an
8:54.08 time.
On the girls' side, the 4x800
team (Riley Bernardin, Alessa
Bastron, Fry, Megan Guenther)
ran an 11:26 time for the No. 15
spot at regional.

Association on an eligibility
question.
Hammon acknowledged that
ICS getting a reprieve is a long-
shot, but wanted to be ready.
Brito is scheduled to host
Champagnat in the district final
at 4 p.m. Friday in a game
played at Island Christian.
"Obviously we wanted to go
to the regional tournament like
we did last year but it was a suc-
cessful season," Hammon said.
"We played .500 ball [the Eagles
were 8-8 in the regular season]
and improved throughout the
season. We're hitting a lot better
than we did last year."
With the exceptional of grad-
uating senior outfielder Gil
Gonzalez, the entire roster is eli-
gible to return next spring.
"We've got three juniors and
a couple sophomores," Hammon
said. "We have two freshmen


starters, and our second baseman
is in eighth grade. These are
young, young guys."
Sophomore left-hander Aaron
Izaguirre did what he could
Monday, pitching a complete
game against Champagnat. He
allowed nine hits and struck out
five.
At the plate, Aaron was 2-for-
2 with a home run, and walked
twice. He scored three of the five


Eagle runs, and had two RBI.
"I thought Aaron pitched a
great game, and his bat speaks
for itself," Hammon said. "His
home run was as long as any I've
seen him hit."
The four Izaguirre brothers
accounted for six of the eight
Eagle hits shortstop Phillip
had two singles, outfielder
Jordan doubled deep, and first
baseman Matthew singled.

Younger Meyers
helps the staff
at Coral Shores
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Jeff Meyers didn't coach his
son when Patrick played baseball
for Coral Shores.
Now he coaches with him.
"Who wouldn't want to have
your son right there coaching
with you? I think its great," the
senior Meyers said.
The father-son tandem, along
with pitching coach Jorge
Bosque, lead the Hurricanes into
this week's this week's District
16-3A Tournament at the
Founders Park field in
Islamorada.
"I wanted to come back to the
program," said Patrick, 26, now
on the teaching staff at Key
Largo School. "Learning more
about coaching from dad has
been a very positive experience."
Said his father, "You don't see
many kids who go away to col-
lege. come back down here to


Jeff kept his distance from the
dugout during his son's prep
career. "I tried to stay out of it,"
he said.
Then working as assistant
principal at Key Largo School,
time demands would have made
it difficult in any event, he
added.
After Patrick headed for
Florida State, Jeff resumed his
31-year coaching roles, becom-
ing Coral Shores' head coach for
football and baseball.
Patrick switched majors 'in
college, deciding to add another
teacher to the Meyers clan.
While in Tallahassee, he served
as an assistant coach at
University High School.
Being a young coach, Patrick
said, "has its ups and downs. The
biggest thing is learning how to
deal with the kids. I was in their
place not too long ago."
"I rely a lot on Jorge and
Patrick," Jeff said. "They know
so much about pitching, I don't
say a thing to our pitchers."
It's also gone well on the
field, with the Canes taking a 17-
7 record into the district tourna-
ment.
Jeff said he was grateful to
KLS Principal Annette
Martinson for being flexible on
Patrick's schedule during base-
ball season (the team practices
and plays 18 miles from where
he works).
Patrick definitely will be a
head coach one day, Jeff said -
maybe in the green-and-gold of
Coral Shores. "I wouldn't mind
that," the proud father smiled.

Winner goes

Gulliver Prep
Keynoter Staff


Coral Shores carried a three-
game win streak and 15-7 record
into the District 16-3A
Tournament semifinal round
Tuesday.
Winner of the Coral Shores-
Archbishop Carroll game
(results not available at press
time) will face defending district
champion Gulliver Prep in a 4
p.m. Thursday final at Founders
Park in Islamorada.


Both teams that reach the dis-
trict final move on to the state
regional playoffs next week.
Gulliver (20-7) rallied to
escape from Ransom
Everglades, 12-11, Monday.
Coral Shores finished the reg-
ular season with a 7-2 win
Friday at Spanish River of Boca
Raton.
Second baseman Brett Smith
had two extra-base hits to drive
in three runs. Mike Rentz got the
pitching win.
Earlier in the week, the Canes
rallied to beat Pine Crest, 5-4, in
Fort Lauderdale. Alex Nobregas
and Rafael Medina each home-
red. Chris Noble got the pitching
win.

work. I'd like to see more of it. It
helps keep traditions going."
Patrick played for coach Rich
Russell before Russell (another
Coral Shores graduate who
returned to his hometown)
focused on the school athletic
director's post.
In 1999, his senior year,
Patrick hit .370 while playing
first base and the outfield. He
also pitched as part of a rotation
headed by Glenn Tucker, who
went on to become a standout
reliever for East Carolina
University and a draft pick of the
Atlanta Braves.
"We won 20 games so it was a
lot of fun," Patrick said.

Winner will secure a spot in state playoffs


BASEBALL / From 22

the harder it is to focus."
The game is set for 3:30 at the
Belen campus in Miami. It will
be broadcast on WKWF-AM
(1600).
The winner will advance to
Thursday's title game likely
against Monsignor Pace and
also secure a spot in the state
playoffs. The loser will have to
wait until next season to play
again.
Today's pitching match-up
will be familiar Daniel Foltz
against Mauricio Rodriguez,
who for two years has bedeviled
the Conchs with his arm and bat.
His two-run homer in the sev-
enth inning sent Foltz and the
Conchs home last spring.
"He's just a lefty whose fast-
ball averages 84, 86 mph and


who lands his curve for a strike
at any time," Belen coach Tony
Meilan said. "And he has ice in
his veins."
Both teams are coming into
the game with confidence. Key
West, 17-8, has a six-game win-
ning streak.
"Our kids feel that we are a
much better team right now than
we were the times we played
them this year," Menendez said.
"They are focused on the task in
front of them. I think if we can
take the lead early, that will help
out tremendously. The pressure
becomes a factor when you are
[behind] and you start to run out
of outs."
Meilan said the 16-10
Wolverines "are confident in the'
sense that we know we can win
this game. The school is very
excited, especially that this win
will put us in the regionals for


Fin sluggers lead off


PLAYOFFS / From 22

Tuesday.
Both games occurred too late
for press time Tuesday night.
It seemed the softball
Dolphins had the best chance to
advance by bringing in a 10-7
record and facing 7-9 Dade
Christian, although the
Crusaders were an unknown
commodity.
"Itf could be a good game,"
coach Jason Frank said Monday.
"I'd hate to play a cream puff in
the first round. I like to see a
more evenly matched game and
be better prepared for the sec-
ond-round game."
With a win, Marathon would
advance to play either Highlands
Christian, runner-up in District
14-2A, or Glades Day, winner of
District 13-2A, Friday evening.
"You always look [at the
games ahead], but you still got
to play one game at a time,"
Frank said. "Right now, we just
want to see how far we can go.
We are just five games away
from the state championship.
Anything can happen."
Anything can happen with
this year's talented Dolphins
squad led by pitcher Megan
Gardner, who's thrown in nearly
every contest this season.
Leading the offense in the
No. 1 position is Shelby Kuck,
who has managed this season to


"always be on base," Frank said.
Sandahl Stephens, Alexis
Culver, Abi Meyer and Melanie
Boyd round out an experienced
and potent lineup.
The Marathon baseball team
(3-11) also brings into the post-
season a lineup that has consis-
tently produced runs, particular-
ly in the final stretch of the reg-
ular season.
Slugger Sean O'Connor leads
the team, as he did last season,
in most offensive categories
including hits (20), runs (12),
home runs (two, from one
game), stolen bases (eight), bat-
ting average (.476), on-base per-
centage (.577) and slugging
(.690).
"We've been swinging the
bats really well, and we're right
where we want them to be,"
coach Luis Leal said.
"Defensively, we're probably at
the best we've been all year. It's
just a matter of if our pitching
will be on."
Handling the pitching duties
was No.1 hurler Toby Eigner,
who, like Gardner, has pitched
the majority of the games for the
Dolphins. Eigner came into the
playoffs with a 3-4 record and
3.63 ERA.
With a win, Marathon would
earn a berth to the Region 2A
tournament and face
Westminster Christian for the
district title at 4 p.m. Thursday
in Miami.


the fifth y-ar in a row."
Key West is coming off two
bizarre weekend victories
against Forest Hill at Rex Weech
Field.
Friday night, the Conchs
scored 14 runs in the first inning
en route to an 18-5 victory.
Then in a Saturday morning
game that stretched well into the
afternoon, the Conchs won
again, 17-11, scoring 15 runs in
the third inning, only to have'
Forest Hill come back to score
10 in the fourth.


Foltz, who won Friday
night's game, hopes that today
won't be the end of his Conch
career.
"We're going to play it like
it's a regular-season game and
hope for the best," he said. "If
we play the way we're capable
of playing, we can win."
If the Conchs win, a fan bus
will leave at 9:30 a.m. Thursday
from the high school. Fifty seats
are available at a cost of $20. For
more information, call 747-
0021.

NEWS UPDATE


Topic: Affordable
housing

Host: Alyson Crean,
Keynoter's Key West Bureau Chief

Guest: Bill Loewy,
advocate for affordable housing


After three years of overseeing
18 sports programs a tenure
during which he flipped hamburg-
ers, drove a bus and coped with a
hurricane-destroyed home -
Judd Wise has resigned as athletic
director at Key West High School.
"Life passes you by," he said.


"I want to
devote more
time to my
family."
Wise, 48,
will stay at
the position
through the
Surest of the
school year
WISE and is on a
committee
that will select his successor.
Applicants include former
baseball coach Ralph Henriquez,
girls soccer coach Scott Paul and
assistant baseball coach Peter
Fraga. '
"There's been a lot of stress the
last 18 months," Wise said in an
interview Sunday at a friend's
house on Staples Avenue, where
the family is living while their for-
mer home down the street, ruined
by Hurricane Wilma's storm
surges, is being rebuilt. "We lost.
everything but a microwave and
the refrigerator.."
Until early this month, Wise,
his wife Penny, who suffered a
mild heart attack in January, and
daughter.Trish, a senior on the
softball team, stayed on Sugarloaf
Key. Another daughter, Katie,
attends the University of South
Florida.
With the added driving time,
Wise said he was devoting 60
hours a week to his job.
"He immersed himself in the
job, often putting his personal and


family obligations in second
place," Principal John Welsh said.
"His loyalty and unselfishness to
KWHS and its students will be dif-
ficult to replace."
In a position that pays a $4,600
supplement, Wise raised money,
helped with scheduling, prepared
the gym and fields for events, took
down banners at the football field
before storms, organized security,
worked with the Florida High
School Athletic Association and
assigned umpires for baseball and
softball.
"I've been there to help, to take
the burden off the coaches -
when they're happy, that reflects
on me," said Wise, who knew he
couldn't please them all the time.
Paul, the soccer coach, called
Wise a "model" athletic director.
"He has been everything that
one can hope for in an A.D.," he
said. "He is the consummate rah-
rah man."
Clad usually in a red-and-white
Conch T-shirt, Wise enthusiastical-
ly worked concession stands, filled
in as a public-address announcer
and spread the Conch gospel on a
weekly TV show. He sprinted onto
the football field last fall to help
prevent a post-game brawl.
And more than 100 times he
drove teams up U.S. 1 in a school
bus for games on thejmainland.
"Tommy Roberts once told me,
'If you're going to coach here,
you've got to be able to drive a
bus,' he said, referring to the late


Keys briefs


Mini-golf event
helps youth sports

What's called the inaugural
Lower Keys Football and
Cheerleading Mini Golf
Tournament is set for 10 a.m. to
6 p.m. May 6 at Boondocks on
Ramrod Key.
Play will be in the following
age divisions: up to age 5, 6 to 8,

18 and over. Trophies will be
given to the boy and girl in each
age division with the lowest
score.
Proceeds will go toward

Dragon racers
needed for team

Key West's dragon-boat rac-
ers hope to get enough people to
form a team for the May 5
Miami Dragon Boat Festival.
Practices up to then will
include techniques for race
starts, pulls, strokes and more.
For details, call John Duke at

coach and educator for whom the
football stadium is named.
A Fort Myers native,- Wise has
been at Key West High School for
20 years as a health teacher and a
head or assistant coach for volley-
ball, softball, basketball, football
and swimming. Around school,
he's still "Coach Wise," a term still
thrilling to him.
During his three years, Key
West has won a state baseball title
and hosted soccer and softball state
playoff games.
"I'm proud of what I've accom-
plished, but I've never put pressure
on coaches to win," he said. "This
is high school. I'm more about
moral values and sportsmanship."
Wise has tried to get more
home games in all sports.
"I tell the coaches to make it
worthwhile for teams to come
here," he said. "Paying $60 for
pizza after a game is a lot better
than paying $300 for an away
trip."
After Sunday's interview, he
walked with Penny over to their
new house, which could be ready
in July. Still there was the swim-
ming pool in which he used to frol-
ic with his dog Missy Girl until she
died two years ago.
He'll stay on at the school as a
teacher and assistant swim coach,
and probably still serve lunch
every day. And he'll fish more.
Penny is happy with his deci-
sion. "Enough is enough," she
said. "Now it's time to have fun."

Keys Fishing


Offshore
Anglers saw w est and
north winds most of last
Week. which made for a
slowdown in the dolphin
action. The da\ s that ble\\
on shore, it really blew hard,
making for rough sea condi-
tions.
How ever. there %were
good dolphin catches those
rough days by those who
could handle the rough seas.
Capt. John Taskowiiz on the
Su-tnne and Capt. Kevin
KeUll on the Moithni Load
out of Islamorada both
fished the hump and caught
-i blackfin tuna and dropped
for amberjack.

Reef
\cr\ good sailfish action
occurred below the Alligator
Reef lighthouse last week:
boat. from Bud 'n Mary's
marina scored several releases.
Otherwise, reef fishing
consisted of chunming up
the ever-popular yellowtail
snapper. Capt. Mike Ow enis
did jusi that on a shallow
reef spot below the hght-
house. His anglers filled the
bo\ with 16- to 20-inch yel-
Iow tail snapper (w which must
be over 12 inches w ith a bag
limit of 10 per person).

Gulf, bay
The outer reaches of
Flonda Bay and near Gulf
w waters were quile off color
this week, probably\ a result
of wind-whipped muddy
water created by the strong
north and west wind. The
Sandy Kei area water w as
gray and it stretched out into
the Gulf.
But one captain reported
running more than 12 nules
i- (outside of Flonda Bay to a
wreck and found beautiful
clean water and had a banner
catch of cobia, grouper and
long mackerel.

Flats, backcountry
The old reliable Rankin
area is producing some great
catches of trout, rany up to
and over the slot size, luch
is 20 inches.

Rosher, crew take
World Sailfish
2nd straight year

The fifth year of the World
Sailfish Championship is. in the
books and history was made on
many levels.
The first repeat champion was
recorded when Capt. Ray Rosher
came up with a typical Rosher-.
like strong finish to take the
$100,000 check.
The team of Miami's Get Lit
recorded five sailfish releases on
Day 3 to pull ahead of team Steel
Magnolia to be the first crew in
the five-year history to repeat.
With Rosher and team owner
Kit Toomey coming into the tour-
nament as hot as any team in sail-
fishing history, competitors
stopped acting surprised when
word hit the Key West docks at
3:30 Saturday of the Get Lit's
impending victory.
The final standings were Get
Lit with 14 fish, day-two leader
Steel Magnolia with 13 fish and
Day 1 leader Sea Wolf with 12
sailfish caught and released.
Rounding out the Top 10 are
the Four Aces with 11, Miss Britt
2 with 10, Sandman with 10,
Persistence with 10, Ovation
with nine, Counter Culture with
nine and 2005 champion Rod
Holder with nine.
Tournament Director Chris
King says this year's World
Sailfish saw the most sails caught


Cal Sutphin


a n d
released in
the event's
history,
with 538.
A n
amazingly
consistent
bite by the
120 or so
teams saw
Day 1 end
with 168
sailfish,
Day 2 with
178 and


Day 3 with 192 sails.
That comes as a bit of a sur-
prise, considering Wednesday
and Thursday had slightly west-
northwest winds, which are not
the most favorable conditions for
sailfish.
Sailfish normally feed better
when the wind and tide move
against each other. Add on top of
that a trickle of an eastbound cur-
rent offshore and if there were
Vegas odds before the tourna-
ment, most people would have
taken the under.
Local teams found fish but
just couldn't crack the leader
board.
"The bite was way to the east
every day," according to Capt.
Shannon Fountain on the Miss
Budweiser out of the Galleon
Resort. "We did OK at the
Western Sambos on Day 3 but
just couldn't find them after the
early-morning bite was over."
Bob Cardenas, fishing on his


boat El Pescador out of the Kings
Pointe Marina, said his crew
"tried to out-think the fish" on
Day 3. "We really figured with
the wind shifting to the northeast,
that was the smart play."
Capt. Jeff Distefano, fishing
with Tim Greene on the
Beachcomber, was near the
crowd of competitors to the east
near Sombrero Reef but opted to
steer clear.
"It's hard to believe that those
Boats all stacked up like that were
catching fish. Maybe all of that
engine noise actually attracts sail-
fish?"
It wasn't all doom and gloom
for Keys anglers.
Beatriz Terry landed a 57-
pound wahoo on 20-pound
monofilament, which surprised
everyone on the Alchemist from
Islamorada. Terry also landed a
30-pound blackfin tuna to make
the lack of sailfish on board at
least a.little more palatable. Two
tarpon on fly were also jumped
over the four-day event.
Well, technically it was Stu
Apte fishing with Key West flats
guide Sean O'Keefe and the
angler was retired Gen. Norman
Schwarzkopf. Leave it to Apte to
go tarpon fishing in a sailfish
tournament.
By the way, those two hooked
tarpon were the first ever for the
general.
The all-time firsts in the World
Sailfish don't end there.

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, April 25, 2007


Rising fuel prices are hardly a gas


You know what? Reality has
set in on fishing these days. Not
just here in the Keys, but pretty
much nationwide.
I cannot speak for the rest of
the nation, but I can tell you that
in the Middle Keys, fuel prices
have gone up 48 cents a gallon in
the past 20 days, and that's just on
the highway. That alone has been
the No. 1 reason given by anglers
for not fishing as near as much as
usual. It is not weather because
we have had well-below-average
winds so far this year. Anyone in
South Florida knows it is not rain
because for the most part, there
hasn't been any.
So what can it be?
By far the No. 1 answer has
been: "I don't want to go out
looking for dolphin 20-plus miles
and bum all of that fuel." Or,
"Those Gulf wrecks are still hot
with fish but the run now cost me
more than $450 in gas."
I know it's not the bait prices
because my bait prices are only
up 3 to 5 percent the past three
years, most of that is due to the
fuel increases that are now
charged on delivery. Tackle has
not gone up very much with the
exception of lead, at least not by
the percentages of fuel increases.
I feel for those who just got
their 28- to 32-footer with the
three big engines on the back so
they could be on the dolphin in
seconds. Sounded like a grand
idea about $2 a gallon ago, didn't
it?
One thing I've learned over
the years is that speed is equated
with money more than horsepow-
er. Nowadays, when someone
says that they have a 250 on their
boat, they are saying how much
money it bums per hour.


Cat s rI run a
slow, 12-
knot, 31-
footer with
a single
Cummings
diesel but I
S get 2.2
.miles per
gallon, and
all of my
organs
shave
remained in
Dave Navarro their origi-
nal loca-
tions upon my return to the dock.
Even with that, I have noticed I
am not going out as frequently or
as far as usual.
I don't really plan it that way.
It's just that it doesn't seem to
justify going on a long trip to take
a chance on finding some nice
fish.
I've talked with staff at sever-
al local fuel docks and have been
told the amount of fuel pumped
this season is off more than 40
percent from years past. This is
the largest indicator that fuel
prices have put a dent in local
fishing and, in turn, visitors.
I can say that many of the
usual anglers and captains I con-
tact on a regular basis throughout
the Keys for information to relay
in this column are not fishing
nearly as often as years past. This
week alone, with beautiful weath-
er, fewer than half the regular
charter captains fished. This is
one of the reasons I have been
struggling to find reports from
many venues lately.
OK, enough complaining
about it. Now, what do we do
about it?
One option is what I call the


Tourney goes over $1M


SUTPHIN / From 32

The $1 million mark was hit
in raising money for charities,
thanks in large part to Guy
Harvey's huge original oil paint-
ing going foi $200,000 at the live
auction Thursday night.
While much of the proceeds
go to groups throughout the U.S.,
a good portion of the money stays
in the Keys.
Groups that benefit are Big
Brothers Big Sisters, the Rotary
Club of Key West, the American


Red Cross, the Bahama Village
Music Program and Monroe
Association for Retarded
Citizens.
Many deserve congratulations
for putting on a great World
Sailfish, including Capt. Mike
Weinhofer, Chris and Bryan
King,. Bill Spottswood, Laura
Emole and the staff from CSM
Marketing.

'Reelin' in the Keys with Cal'
airs at 8 p.m. Monday and 4
p.m. Friday on Comcast Cable
Channel 19.


Dorothy Syndrome. You remem-
ber, "There's no place like home.
There's no place like home."
On my past seven trips, I do
not believe I have traveled more
than five miles from the dock.
I've been working humps and
bumps in Hawk Channel, the
near spots in the bay and the area
bridge channels. May sound bor-
ing, but the catches have been
damn good nice hogfish, mut-
ton, mango, lane and even some
very nice yellowtail snapper; sev-
eral keeper grouper; a wide vari-
ety of fun fish; and other good-
eating species.
Nice thing about the Keys is
that there are plenty of locations
to find fish very close to home.
Other locations that have been
reported as doing just fine are the
reef edge with yellowtail, along
with some huge kingfish that are
still around. And sailfish action
has turned on like it should have
back in November this week just
off the edge.
Bay snapper has had an upturn
the past several days, with some
very nice snapper.
This week's free fishing semi-
nar will focus on the bay and
what is available now, along with
where to find it. It is always a
nice option, particularly on windy
days. The seminar begins at 6:30
p.m. Thursday at our outdoor
amphitheater in our Marine
Educational Center, mile marker
50 bayside.


For the most part, dolphin
fishing is still scattered but
should improve very soon. Look
for a big increase in fish working
through local waters in the next
week or so if tradition holds true.
Tarpon are not only in the area
and active, but by far the best bet
for a big fish on a short trip. The
bridges and channels have them
available, and they are hungry.
A reminder: The 31st annual
Ladies Tarpon Tournament is
May 4 and 5 and the 41st annual
Marathon International Tarpon
Tournament is May 10 to 12. You
can send me an e-mail to world
classan@comcast.net for further
information.
