With the slowdown in tourism
for the season, many Keys resi-
dents have been dreaming of get-
ting outdoors and enjoying some
fresh air.
But reality lends a more
uncomfortable situation an
inescapable, airborne haze
spreading its wheezing, choking
effects across the state.
The inordinate amount of
wildfires sweeping across Florida
and spanning all the way up to
southern Georgia have infected
the Keys' once-sweet Caribbean
gusts, causing a lack in the air's
"fresh" department.
Last Wednesday a wildfire
broke out in Big Pine Key, con-
tributing to the smoky air.
Investigators suspect arson.
"I've never seen anything like
this," said Tera Dunick, rehab
technician at Key West
Orthopedics. "It's definitely
affecting my allergies."
As an asthmatic, and one who
typically spends much of her free
time outdoors, Dunick said the
smoke has had a great effect on
her, as she's spent more time
cooped up at home than going on
her regular boat rides or swim-
ming excursions.
"I'm getting bad sinus
headaches," she said. "I barely
went outside this weekend."
Doctors say staying indoors
might be a wise choice for many.
And although Lower Keys


Medical Center has received no
reported respiratory cases from
poor air quality, it did provide a
number of helpful tips to those
feeling a little under the weather.
Limit the amount of time
spent outside for the elderly, chil-
dren and people with existing
medical conditions.
+ Stay indoors and make sure
your air conditioning unit has a
clean filter, and a tightly closed
fresh-air intake to make sure the
smoke can't enter your home.
Keep all windows closed.
+ Refrain from using gas
stoves, candles or smoking tobac-
co in your house.
+ If possible, delay vacuum-
ing, as it stirs up particles already
inside your home.
+ If you have asthma or any
other breathing problems, follow
your asthma management plan
and your doctor's advice on tak-
ing medications. If symptoms
worsen, seek medical assistance
immediately.
+ And finally, stay informed
of news coverage and health
warnings. Stay alert to local air
quality reports.
"Everyone is complaining,"
said Sebastian Santillan, a med-
ical technician at Dr. Bernard
Ginsberg's office in Tavemier.
Santillan said Ginsberg's
patients have complained of
coughing fits, shortness of breath
and itchy eyes. For asthmatics,
there are few options outside


staying inside to mitigate the
breathing complications, as anti-
histamines can't clear the skies,
Santillan said.
Physical therapist Lilla
Whiteside said recent 'weather
has put a damper on her daily jog.
Whiteside is president of the Key
West Southernmost Runners
Club and in obviously great phys-
ical shape. Even so, she said her
runs have been interrupted by a
deep cough, which typically
never happens.
But Whiteside said she is
determined to 'rise above the
smog by "toughing it out."
Unless the smog thickens, she'll
continue her normal exercise rou-
tine.
And if current weather trends
continue, Whiteside will keep
jogging and residents will breath
a little easier.
Recent wet, cooler weather is
expected to accompany a wind
shift that will cause the smoke to
disperse. Monday night's rains
have already given some relief.
But while the smoke slowly
disappears at the ground level, it
still lingers several thousand feet
in the sky, according to Chip
Kasper, senior forecaster at the
National Weather Service in Key
West.
Officials at Key West
International Airport claim a visi-
bility reduction up to 7 miles.
"We do still have a residual
smoke layer," Kasper said, "but I
think we are going to see a grad-
ual improvement day to day."


Be prepared during dry season


FIRE / From 1

The worst of the blazes are in
the northern part of the state,
where homes have been threat-
ened and sections of highways I-
75 and I-10 have been closed due
to smoke.
Kasper reports that since Jan.
1, rainfall in Tampa is 4.71 inch-
es below its average of 10.56.
Rains in Jacksonville are 6.91
inches below an average of
15.31, while Tallahassee levels
are 11.89 inches below its 21.96
average.
Although Key West is 3.26
inches below its average of 9.09,
Kasper said Marathon has
received 1.2 inches above its
average of 9:97 for the same peri-
od.


"That's not surprising, as rain-
fall in the Keys is very hit and
miss and tends to all average out
at the end of the year," Kasper
said. "Because we don't have any
severe impacts in terms of agri-
culture or hydrology, farms,
fields and rivers, the Keys can
never be in a quote, un-quote,
drought."
Current conditions are not as
severe as during the same period
last year, when the Keys set sev-
eral records including the driest
ever six-month stretch from
November 2005 to May 2006,
with only 1.05 inches of rain in
Key West.
However, a drier-than-average
winter this year has led to "over-
ly dry" conditions in the Keys, as
evidenced by last week's wildfire
on Big Pine Key that burned


nearly six acres of brush and
remained burning for several
days. Investigators are pointing
to arson as the likely cause.
Anne Morkill, manager of the
National Key Deer Refuge on
Big Pine, said she would be
scheduling public meetings in the
coming months to form a com-
munity wildfire protection plan,
"We are working with other
agencies and community repre-
sentatives," Morkill said. "We
want to address where to do fuel
[dead vegetation] reduction, fire
breaks in subdivisions, more fire
hydrants and try to identify what
the community needs to be better
prepared."
Anyone can report suspected
arson at (800) 342-5869. For
more information, visit www

Sewer money up for approval today


$3.5 million
would go to
various projects
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission is poised today to
approve $3.5 million in sewer
funding for the Middle and
Lower Keys.
In two separate resolutions,
the county is looking to provide
$1.5 million for the Conch
Key/Duck Key project. Another
$2 million would be earmarked
for a regional wastewater sys-
ternthat will serve Summerland,
Cudjoe and Upper Sugarloaf
keys.
The commission meeting
begins at 9 a.m. at the Key
Largo library. The sewer fund-
ing is scheduled for discussion
at 1:30.
"We're in the middle of
designing plant improvements
to bring the existing plant up to


[advanced wastewater treatment
requirements] on Duck Key,"
said Jim Reynolds, executive
director of the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority. "We'll be
ready to bid that project in
another couple of months. But
we need county assistance to
fund it."
The Duck Key plant needs so
much upgrading to accommo-
date both Duck and Conch keys
that Reynolds says it will essen-
tially be a new plant.
"There are basically two
parts to a project," Reynolds
said. "There's the plant, which
in this case should be roughly
$2 million. Then there is the
pipeline work, which is about
$12 million."
The county is looking to
hookup fees, state money and
other grants to fill financial
gaps. According to estimates
accumulated by state Rep. Ron
Saunders, Monroe County will-
need more that $500 million to
finish sewering the Keys.


Student speaker inspires


GRADUATION / From 1

pus, completed in 1998.
Seeker was also awarded the
annual Faculty of the Year honor
for his leadership.
The student speaker for the
ceremony was Bambi Griffin,
who gave an inspiring speech
about overcoming obstacles. A
fitting topic for Griffin, as she
dropped out of high school over
her frustration in the classroom,
which she later discovered was
because of a learning disability.
Asked in an interview what
unique experience she gained
from the college, Griffin replied:
"Individual attention, because
they have such a small student
body."
But had the classes been
filled to the brim, Griffin said,
she still would've had.the same
steadfast attention because of the
level of devotion apparent in
each FKCC instructor.
Griffin, a world traveler, will
go on to study political science
at Florida State University, and
plans to attend law school, with
dreams of becoming a human-
rights attorney.


Amy Jeffries stood out as
another exemplary student, tak-
ing home five different honors
including being named to Who's
Who Among American Junior
Colleges and All-American
Academic Junior Colleges.
Jefferies will spend the sum-
mer in Maui to study whales for
a National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
internship.
While only 100 grads crossed
the stage Friday evening, more
actually received degrees.
Typically, double the amount of
students who walk actually
graduate, according to Estenoz.
Degrees granted included
associates in arts, applied sci-
ence in business administration,
business diving technology,
graphic design, marine engineer-
ing and nursing. There also were
certificates awarded in addic-
tions studies and business data
processing
Following the ceremony, an
after-graduation party was held
at the Key West Golf Club with
more than 200 faculty and grad-
uates attending.
"It was pretty special for all
of us," Estenoz said.


The second resolution sets
aside $2 million for the Lower
Keys project that Reynolds says
will begin once Big Coppitt is
finished.
"That $1.5 million is prima-
rily for design," Reynolds
explained. The overall cost to
sewer Summerland, Cudjoe and
Upper Sugarloaf will likely top
$70 million, he says.
S"We anticipate doing that one
in phases," he said.
Today's resolutions are
essentially gestures, at least
until the county has a clearer
idea of the Legislature's impact
on local property taxes.
During the regular session
that ended earlier this month,
legislators debated a number of
proposals that could cut or even
eliminate property taxes. It will
reconvene June 12 in hopes of
hammering out a tax relief plan.
In the meantime, local govern-
ments all over the state are
sweating it out since most tenta-
tive budgets need to be pulled
together by the end of July.
County Administrator Tom
Willi has told Aqueduct
Authority officials he can't real-
ly earmark the money until the


county knows what the state
will do.
"And we can't go out for bid
on a project that isn't funded,"
Reynolds said.
Both projects include pipe-
lines specifically designated for
reuse water.


"We've not grant money to
fund those lines," Reynolds
said. "We'll be initiating that
project soon. It must be done
before the end of September."
The South Florida Water
Management District is paying
for the reuse pipelines.

Impact fees are final straw


CHAPPY'S / From 1

tling through zone changes,
resistance from neighboring resi-
Sdents and the latest hit of a poten-
i tial $250,000 in impact fees wait-
ing for them, the Chaplins have
Apparently called it quits.

some trade if the new owner
would build the restaurant.
However, she fears condos
could be the only commercially
viable option for the property,
considering the price of the land
and all the costs and restrictions
associated with building that
restaurant.
The Chaplins' story began
eight years ago with attempts to
correct what was perceived as
incorrect residential zoning, but
Chaplin said. they were told by
city officials the zoning would be
corrected in the city's new com-
prehensive plan.
That plan wasn't approved
until 2005, and the City Council
did approve the zone change
amid protest by neighboring resi-
dents. Through that time, the
Chaplins allowed the land to be
used for various community
events with minimal to no
charge.

' The Chaplins' family's
longtime plans to build a
restaurant, at the base of
the Seven Mile Bridge
Shave apparently
collapsed due to
what they call too
many roadblocks.


In the major conditional use
that finally approved the 5,800-
square-foot restaurant in 2006,
the Chaplins agreed to several
deed restrictions to build a pool
for residents, plant increased
trees and buffers and install a
fence to keep traffic out of the
neighborhoods.
Chaplin first estimated it
would cost $1 million to build the
restaurant, but that has doubled
due to increased construction
costs. Chaplin said they would
also have to construct their own
sewage plant now that Earthmark
Co. apparently has slowed its
plans to redevelop the neighbor-
ing Knights Key Campground.
The Chaplins had planned to use
Earthmark's plant.
"The last straw for me was the
impact fee," Chaplin said. "Once
that place ig built, can you imag-
ine what our taxes will be? We
are not going to be an impact on
affordable housing."
The city is working on an
affordable-housing impact fee
that, as written, would charge
$205,660 to the project. Chaplin
said she was already in line to
obtain the permits to construct
three duplexes providing housing
for her workers on nearby lots.
Marathon Mayor Chris Bull
said he was saddened to hear of
the Chaplins' struggles, but he
said it might be worth exploring
the option of the city buying the
land for preservation.

Council again talks fees


Gross looking
for direction on
impact payments
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

After nearly a month of push-
ing off discussions of setting
impact fees to fund affordable
housing, the Marathon City
Council is scheduled to hash out
the fees at a special meeting
scheduled for 5:30 p.m. today at
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office hangar at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
The fees proposed by
Planning Director Fred Gross
would range from $1 per square
foot of new residential develop-
ment up to $50,000 per 1,000
square feet of new tourist-based
commercial development.
Gross said the costs are frac-
tions of what was recommended
in a city-commissioned study,
and Gross said he plans to further
reduce fees for residential devel-
opment.
When added to the current


fees for roads, parks and recre-
ation, environmental lands, life
safety and others, the total cost to
build a 2,000-square-foot home
would be $6,735. For a 1,000-
square-foot commercial office
building, the cost would be
$45,324.
Realtors decried the fees when
first proposed in April, and the
council voted to instead investi-
gate the status of units and cash
promised under approved devel-
opment agreements.
Last Tuesday, Planning
Director Fred Gross brought a
report (the same report he provid-
ed in April) that showed develop-
ers had provided nothing toward
affordable housing besides a few
units built by the Singh Co.
Gross said he-hopes to get
some kind of direction from the
council today.
"I'm just going to give it
another shot with a different
approach," Gross said. "I want to
get past the arguing. Hopefully,
this time I'll start off with need
for the impact fee that we've
got to preserve affordable neigh-


borhoods, and we have to have a
fund to do that."
Gross' report states that under
the council's previous affordable
housing policy for new and re-
development, developers should
be providing as many as 91 units
of affordable housing or $12.35
million or some combination of
units and cash.
The report states that if the
proposed impact fees had been
assessed, the city could have col-
lected as much as $31.4 million
that would be earmarked for
affordable housing preservation
and construction.
Still, Realtors said the rates
were too burdensome for many
kinds of small-scale development
and could halt building in the
city.
Gross said a slow real estate
market doesn't affect the need for
affordable housing and shouldn't
necessarily be a part of the coun-
cil's decision.
"If a person is building a
$600,000 house that's 2,000
square foot, they pay $2,000,"
Gross said. "That's pennies per
month on a mortgage, but it will
help us tremendously."


Crab season comes to an end


Annual take
not as good
as past years
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Monroe County once again
will lead the state in stone-crab
harvests, according to state fig-
ures, but the season that ended
Tuesday falls short of a banner
year.
Keys fishermen were expect-
ed to bring in nearly 800,000
pounds of crab claws in the six-
month season that runs from Oct.
15 through May 15 annually.
In a unique fishery, trappers
take only a single claw from the
crab and release it alive. The crab
uses the remaining claw to sur-
vive while it grows a new one
over a period of 18 months.
Final numbers won't be
known for several weeks since
catch reports from the last part of
the season are still being collect-
ed and tallied.


Figures compiled by the state
Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute in St. Petersburg indi-
cate a statewide harvest of
around 2.2 million pounds, up
about 9 percent from last year.
The overall catch was expect-
ed to be worth more than $21
million in dockside sales.
Stone crabs rank only behind
lobster as the most lucrative
catch for Monroe County's com-
mercial fleet.
A 3 million pound harvest


(which means more than 10 mil-
lion claws were taken) is consid-
ered average. Harvests have been
on the low side since a 3.5-mil-
lion-pound season in 2001-02.
Busy hurricane seasons
affected the 2004 and 2005 sea-
sons, destroying thousands of
traps.
No hurricane losses were
reported this year, but rising
costs for fuel and other expenses
are costing the fishing fleet.
About 1,100 people statewide
hold trap licenses to fish for.
stone crabs.

Opinion


It's hardly a surprise:

S. Florida drivers rude

SOne definition of news: Tell us something we don't know.
On that score, then, Tuesday's Associated Press report that
Miami topped the national standings for rude drivers comes as
no surprise.
At least it's safe to say that Miami's reputation for bad traffic
and even worse drivers is well known to most Keys residents
who venture off the rock for car trips to the mainland.
In the Keynoter office, we know of drivers who have report-
ed doing 70 mph on the Turnpike Extension in south Miami-
Dade and being passed by Miami-Dade school buses.
Whatever happened to those accelerator "governors" once
installed on school buses to prevent speeds any faster than 45-
50 mph?
AutoVantage, a Connecticut-based auto club that offers travel
services and roadside assistance, compiled the survey from
more than 2,500 drivers representing 25 major metro areas. The
survey was conducted by phone between January and March.
Miami grabbed top spot for road rage two years running.
Other big cities rated poorly for courteous drivers included New
York (no surprise), Boston, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
A common element in all those cities listed is the dominance
of autos to handle ever-longer commutes in areas poorly
planned for highway and street traffic, or where population
growth has outstripped infrastructure needed to handle
increased traffic loads.
Miami-Dade is a case in point.
On the other end of the spectrum, cities listed for friendly and
courteous drivers included Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh; the
Seattle-Tacoma area; St. Louis; and Dallas-Fort Worth. All but
Dallas-Fort Worth are in slow-growth or declining-growth
areas, so maybe traffic pressures have abated?
You can draw your own conclusions based on your personal
experience traversing six-lane highways and snarled down-
towns in any of those cities and others. Atlanta would be a good
case study.
But we found a simple self-survey from the Auto Insurance
Center you can take to see how you score on this bad-driver
index (answers are yes or no):
1) Do you roll through stop signs rather than com to a com-
plete stop?
2) Do you talk on your cell phone while driving rather than
pull over and stop to talk?
3) Do you carry coffee and a muffin on the road, eating, drink-
ing and driving with one hand?
4) Do you hate driving behind large trucks or wide-body
SUVs and attempt to pass at earliest opportunity?
5) Do you use verbal confrontations or hand signals to express
your frustration at "other" drivers?
The more times you answered "yes," the more likely you are
to be a cause of road rage. And if you're a cause, you can't be
part of the solution.

VMS is forcing many out of commercial fishing


EDITOR:
On May 6, the National Marine Fisheries
Service implemented its requirement that all
boats with gulf-reef fishing licenses be outfitted
with a collar for fishermen. The device tracks
the boats 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Among the more onerous and insidious fea-
tures of the system are the requirements that one
must give 24-hour notice before leaving the
dock, return immediately if it malfunctions, pay
a monthly fee based on satellite phone charges
and be subject to satellite video surveillance so
accurate that a person can be identified on deck.
Marine Fisheries, in order to get the rule .
approved, apparently followed the letter of the
law, but not the spirit, by quietly and efficiently
moving it through the public hearing process.
According to their version, fishermen had every
opportunity to object along the way, but
remained indifferent until it became law.
In reality, we were all caught completely by
surprise. Until notified that it had become law,
no fishermen in Key West had any knowledge
of the proposed rule. Too late to object adminis-
tratively, the fishermen pooled their hard-earned
dollars and filed a lawsuit based on constitution-
al issues of privacy and civil liberties, and the
fact that studies to determine the economic and
social impacts were not done.
Fishermen were outraged at the injustice of
being targeted for tracking like common crimi-


nals. A fisherman is often at sea for a week or
more at a time, and his boat is his car, his office
and his home. It is unimaginable that any group
of law-abiding citizens could be singled out for
such discriminatory treatment in America, yet a
federal judge ruled against the fishermen.
At my fish house, Stock Island Lobster Co.,
there are 24 fishermen with gulf-reef licenses.
By May 6 in a quiet act of defiance that met-
tered to no one but themselves not a single
one had installed the vessel monitoring system.
This means that none of them are now allowed
to fish for snapper and grouper in Gulf waters,
which includes the Dry Tortugas.
A similar scene has been played out dozens
of times through federal and state regulations
that.have banned nets, reduced trap allocations,
introduced quotas, limited access to new
entrants, cut licenses, restricted gear usage and
closed productive areas. Each action warrant-
ed or not takes another bit out of productivi-
ty, and further weakens a fragile industry.
For today, if the fishermen wish to continue
earning a living, they will be forced to suffer the
indignity of being tracked like convicted felons.
Some will leave the fishery because of it, others
will start making alternative plans for the future,
and it becomes one more reason for young peo-
ple to stay away from commercial fishing.

Youth are lucky to have Booker


EDITOR:'
This letter is written to thank Sunny Booker
for her unrelenting energy, dedication and
skilledjeadership of the Monroe Youth
Challenge Program. It was truly an honor to
attend MYCP's second annual awards celebra-
tion at Sombrero Country Club, with more than
170 in attendance ranging in age from 3 to 87.
As one student correctly noted: "We're in
Ms. Booker's room now!" Like everything else,
Sunny's sense of timing and balance between
appreciations, business and fun was perfect.
Sunny energized the room, elegantly bestowing
gratitude to the multitude of community volun-
teers and partners who support MYCP's mis-
sion, with plenty of food and time remaining to
visit with others in attendance, which is what
MYCP is about connection.
Sunny has put countless personal volunteer
hours into building this amazing nonprofit
organization into an efficient, vibrant, county-
wide K-12 prevention initiative with an array of
inspirational and instructional activities that
strengthen self-esteem, respect, leadership and
possibilities for and among our young people in
this county.
MYCP now serves more than 8,500 students
in 21 schools throughout the Keys. Sunny vol-
untarily leads this organization as its chief exec-
utive officer, chief financial officer, personnel
director, art director, public-relations director,
Web master and life coach, to name just a few
of her hats.
She has staff meetings at 7 a.m. with her
right hand and prevention coordinator for the


Keys, Michele Sutter, and works with her com-
munication director from 11 p.m. to midnight
regularly. The hours in between she excels at
her paid position, as safe-school administrator
for the School District, which includes the
Federal Emergency Management Agency, hurri-
cane preparedness, drug-free schools and much
more.
We are so fortunate to have Sunny's heart,
commitment and multitude of gifts blessing our
community and our children.

City drags its feet on parking problems


EDITOR:
I found the article in May 9 issue
of the Keynoter titled "Parking panel
inches toward solutions" quite inter-
esting. I have especially been irritat-
ed with the downtown Key West
parking situation, especially for
locals, over the past year.
I e-mailed all of the city commis-
sioners on this very issue approxi-
mately one year ago, when I tried to
find parking downtown only to find
five of the spaces in front of the
Custom House area taken over by
electric-car companies barking to
cruise-ship passengers. The few
responses I got back from the Key
West commissioners basically said,
"We are very aware of this and plan
to take care of this quickly."
Well, as I said, that was approxi-
mately one year ago. I do realize the
commission must work within the
confines of the law. But each year, as
I see pleas to shop locally, especially
during the holiday season, it only
gets harder and harder to find a park-
ing place.
Locals spend money, likely more
than tourists. The electric-car rental
company people are basically saying
"you can't do anything to us" when
they boldly get their permits and
park-their "cars" in public parking
areas to rent. On a side note, how
safe are these open-air cars? They
look like a tragedy ready to happen.
But I digress.
If the Key West City Commission
understands the problem, it seems
odd that it has not moved more
quickly to alleviate this problem. A
change in the wording of the law
giving out commercial permits that
would exclude rentals seems like a
very doable thing. But until then, I
have begun quiet, calm, informative
confrontation with the very people
that are considering renting these
units parked in front of the Custom
House. Nothing mean or loud, just a
brief, "Are you visiting the Keys?
Thanks for coming, but I need to let
you know these rental-car businesses


are taking advantage of a loophole in
our laws here and adding to our
parking problem."
I have opted to educate our visi-
tors on how some businesses in our
fine city are abusing the parking situ-
ation while at the same time thanking
the tourists for coming to our island.
You can also give them directions to
the few, very few, parking options in
the Old Town area.
Think about this the next time you
go down and find rental businesses
using public parking spaces. And
when you see calls to shop local,
make sure to ask whoever tells you
to shop local if they have confronted
the City Commission on why these
rental-car companies are still hawk-
ing their wares from parking spaces
that belong to the locals as well as
the tourists.

Cay Clubs is solid
EDITOR:
Your banner headline on
Saturday's paper screaming "Cay
Clubs' debt huge" will obviously sell
more papers than if "Village voters
go to polls" had been at the top, but
you missed what, to me, could have
been the real story.
Cay Clubs owns $108 million
worth of real estate holdings, made
$47 million last year, and hasn't
even started redevelopment on most
of its Keys projects. And it appears
to be strong enough as a company
that some other entity is willing to
pay $47 million for a minority posi-
tion.
Who's writing this stuff?
Someone born yesterday?
There are 2,800 existing units and
900 boat slips, and they owe less in
total debt than Ceebraid-Signal paid
for one cheesy hotel complex?
C'mon.

Mental health means quality of life


EDITOR:
May is Mental Health Month and
we at Heron-Peacock Supported
Living are celebrating the progress
that has been made in our efforts to
promote good mental health in the
Florida Keys. We recognize that men-
tal health is a necessary part of good
physical health and quality of life for
all citizens.
But there is still much to do. We
need to find a dependable source of
funding for services like Heron-
Peacock. We need to promote a posi-
tive reputation for people with mental


illness, who are productive workers,
contributing citizens, and family mem-
bers embraced as spouses, parents, and
sons and daughters. And we need our
professionals to adopt a holistic, com-
munity-centered approach to the treat-
ment of mental illness.
We invite all Keys residents to join
the celebration and accept the chal-
lenges of Mental Health Month.

A lack of preparation

could haunt the doubters


With the 2006 hurricane season virtual-
ly quiet, many forget the eight hurricanes
that affected the Keys in 2004 and 2005,
notwithstanding continuing recovery
from Hurricane Wilma's storm surge.
For many, that means complacency has
set in the feeling we're safe for awhile
since we got hit so many times the two
years previous.
Think again.
We may be experiencing drought con-
ditions right now, but weather experts
say it's only a matter of time until the
Keys get struck by a hurricane as power-
ful as Donna in 1960, with maximum
sustained winds of 145, mph,' or
Hurricane Betsy in 1965,
with maximum sustained
winds of 125 mph --the
magnitude of which most cur-
rent Keys residents have,
never experienced.
To put it in perspective,
Wilma's maximum sustained
winds when she crossed the
Keys never topped 95 mph.
On May 30, the Keynoter .
and National Weather ".
Service-Key West are partner-
ing for our third hurricane
awareness program in four Larry
years. It's at 7 p.m. at the
Marathon Government Keynot
Center, and broadcast live on
Monroe County Channel 76.
We're going to have a passel of
experts, from keynoter speaker Bill
Proenza, director of the National
Hurricane Center, to leaders from
Emergency Management, local utilities,
the medical field and more.
We're going to spend time on two spe-
cific topics: evacuation, and why we
need to be prepared for the cavalry not to
arrive for a while after the next big one.
And when I say not for a while, I mean
for a week, two weeks, maybe even
longer.
Those who have been around South
Florida for any length of time know all
about the lack of the cavalry following a
hurricane. Just go back to Andrew in
1992, when then-Miami-Dade Emerg-
ency Management Director Kate Hale
famously screamed in frustration,
"Where in the hell is the cavalry on this
one?!" when no federal help was in sight
for three days.
Some say the so-called experts unnec-
essarily spread the mantra of fear every
year before hurricane season. After all,
the chances of getting whacked by a
killer 'cane are slim. But spreading that
mantra is necessary to a point.
Remember all of those people in New


Orleans stuck at the convention center
following Katrina in. 2005? No' one
arrived to help. Why? Because nobody
knew they were there. It was a news
crew that happened upon them and
called the authorities.
Remember "Heckuva job, Brownie?"
It wasn't.
This year, just like last year, it's espe-
cially true. Why? The simultaneous wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan. And that's no
stretch. Even the government admits
those conflicts directly impact our
National Guards' ability to react with any
real strength.
A story by McClatchy Newspapers
reporter Nancy Youssef fol-
lowing the killer tornadoes in
Kansas earlier this month
Says, "A Government
Accountability Office report
in January found that of 300
types of equipment needed in
natural disasters, the Guard
.0 : had fewer in all categories
S than it did in 2001, before the
'"-.g. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
"Some of the equipment is
unavailable for domestic dis-
Sasters, the GAO found,
Kahn including radios and dump
Kan trucks. Only 2 percent of the
er Editor diesel generators needed are
available, the study found.
"The GAO report estimated that Guard
units in the United States have only 50
percent of the equipment they'd need in
the event of a disaster."
So even the government itself says it
can't help you much when it comes to
the National Guard.
Oh, and speaking of a stretch the
18-Mile Stretch.
Construction and Monroe County
Emergency Management officials say
they expect no problems on that ribbon
of road if an evacuation or two is called
this year. But anyone who's driven
through the-construction zone knows if
the Stretch was bad before the work
started, it's worse now.
Yes, that will change when it's com-
plete. But this year, we could be in for
some real problems when you consider
the only other way out of the Keys by
auto is Card Sound Road also under
construction right now.
This is not scare-mongering. The very
real reality we face here in this isolated
island chain is this: It's tough to get out,
and it's just as tough for help to get in.
Factor in other circumstances such as the
National Guard problems, and lack of
preparation could come back to haunt us
in ways we never imagined.

Some on board
say discussion
needs to widen
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

No administrative staff posi-
tions were cut as the Monroe
County School District Board
unanimously approved three
budgets items at a special meet-
ing Saturday 12 in Key West.
Non-teacher staffing levels
will remain the same for the
2007-08 school year, but some
board members promised "signif-
icant cuts" in other portions of
the budget as talks continue
through the summer.
The current district operating
budget is $82.2 million.
A large number of School
District employees attended
Saturday's meeting, leery of pos-
sible job cuts. Board members
who have called for administra-
tive job cuts in the past said the
meeting was rushed and didn't
provide for enough discussion on
individual positions.
"We should have been in dis-
cussion and not voting at that
point," board member John Dick
said.in a phone interview. "It was
set up as an all-or-nothing vote."
The board approved the budg-

pal positions and earmark more
than $450,000 for instructional
services, $1.4 million for curricu-
lum resource teachers and more
than $375,000. to programs to
keep students from dropping out.
At past meetings, board mem-
bers have proposed possible
budget cuts that included staff
reductions as well as cuts to oper-
ational funds.
"I voted to maintain those
positions because I felt it was the
right thing to do," board member
Steven Pribramsky said in a
phone interview.
But he said there are many
other areas of the budget that can
be cut.
Chairman Andy Griffiths said
principals need to staff their
schools and the board couldn't
wait to vote on this portion of the
budget any longer.
Board member Duncan
Mathewson said in an interview
that this year's budget discus-
sions set "a good foundation" for
future budget cuts.
"I think it's going to take
years. We can't make changes
immediately," he said, adding
that he does believe the board
will begin making "significant
cuts" over the summer.
Pribramsky also said the
board will make cuts this year.
"I am unwilling at this junc-
ture to approve a budget that goes
beyond last year's," he said. "The
superintendent needs to come
forward with a comprehensive
budget."
Griffiths read a lengthy state-
ment, voicing concern that the
board has given too much atten-
tion to the minutiae of the budget
at recent meetings.
"As a board, we have set goals
and objectives for student suc-
cess. It is now up to the adminis-
tration to carry out that plan," he
said. "I do not believe in micro-
management."
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo disagreed, saying, "It is
in the School Board members'
job description to approve and
reject recommendations regard-
ing positions and the organiza-
tional chart. If I,wanted to add a
new position, they'd have to
approve it."

500 properties gone


from the FEMA list


Injunction on
flood policies
still in place
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Nine more Keys properties
were removed Monday from a
list of 49,000 parcels ineligible
for flood insurance.
Overall, more than 500
properties have been pulled
from a list compiled by the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service in
response to a 2005 federal
injunction against the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency.
The injunction stopped
FEMA from writing new flood
policies in the Keys for any
property that could be home to
endangered species habitat.
In September 2005, U.S.
District Court Judge K.


Michael Moore issued the
injunction against FEMA in a
15-year-old lawsuit filed by
three environmental groups -
National Wildlife Federation,.
Florida Wildlife Federation and
Defenders of Wildlife.
The suit alleged FEMA and
Fish & Wildlife were not fol-
lowing the federal Endangered
Species Act that prohibits
development in areas that are
home to endangered species.
Moore's order also gave the
federal government 20 days to
come up with a list of proper-
ties containing suitable habitat
for endangered species. Fish &
Wildlife met that deadline, but
the 49,000 parcels on the list
were disputed by many proper-
ty owners. In fact, many of the
parcels were already developed
and some even scarified -
such as part of the Florida Keys
Marathon Airport runway.


Henry Morgenstern, the
attorney for the environmental
groups involved in the suit, has
been working with landowners
to help remove properties from
the list that do not have sensi-
tive habitat.
In the meantime, the federal
government appealed the
injunction. The llth Circuit
Court of Appeal in Atlanta
heard arguments but has yet to
release its ruling.
"The court can rule any
time," Morgenstern said.. "It
could be tomorrow, it could be
five years from now. Really,
having the injunction in place is
exactly what we wanted, what
Ne think the lai, requires."
The inj uncL o' prohibits new
development that displaces
endangered species, he said.
The injunction also required
Fish & Wildlife to draft a bio-
logical opinion that shows
FEMA and Fish & Wildlife pol-
icy comply with the
Endangered Species Act.
That biological opinion, a
document of more than 200
pages, was completed in 2006.
However, until there's a rul-
ing on the appeal, Morgenstern
said, the environmental organi-
zations will not make a deci-
sion whether it's comprehen-
sive enough.
Morgenstern is the attorney
who initially filed the suit in
the interest of the Key deer,
Key Largo cotton mouse, Stock
Island -tree snail and several
other endangered species.


Feds to post

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service starts its 60-day
roundup of cats in the National
Key Deer Refuge on Monday.
According to Fish &
Wildlife cats are known to prey
on small mammals, birds, turtle
hatchlings, frogs, snakes and
lizards. The endangered Lower
Keys marsh rabbit is found on
Big Pine, and although habitat
loss was responsible for their
original decline, predation by
cats may be the greatest current
threat to their survival, officials
say.

Tuskegee study
a health scandal
for government
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Local health-care officials
hope that remembering more.
than 600 black men who died in
one of the most scandalous
experiments' in American med-
ical history will encourage better
health care across racial lines.
Though the Tuskegee Syphilis
Study conducted by the U.S.
Public Health Service dealt with
syphilis, health officials hope a
Friday memorial ceremony will
help close -the race disparity in
the AIDS epidemic.
"It's an important tie-in," said
Gerri White, spokeswoman for
the Monroe County Health
Department. "There is a clear
disparity in health care in the
African American community,
not only in Monroe County but
throughout the country."
The Health Department will
hold a memorial service Friday
at 11 a.m. at the African memori-


al cemetery at Higgs Beach
marking the 75th anniversary of
the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.
And Friday evening, the
Tropic Cinema on Eaton Street
will have a special showing at
5:30 of "Miss Evers Boys," fol-
lowed by a reception.
The Tuskegee study, conduct-
ed from 1929 until the early
1970s, monitored 600 black men
with syphilis to discover whether
the disease affected people dif-
ferently based upon race. Two
hundred of the men studied
received no treatment, though'
they were told otherwise.
"We must continue to work to
heal the damage which this dark
episode in our history has
caused," Health Department
Administrator Bob Eadie said in
a statement released Tuesday.
"There is still a huge disparity in
this country when it comes to
health care access."
A state study showed that in
2005, blacks accounted for 54
percent of the reported AIDS
cases in the Keys, yet only 13
percent of the population is
black. The study was compiled


by the Florida Department of
Health.
"I'm noticing a slip in the
number of people getting tested,"
said Cyna Underhill, the
HIV/AIDS program coordinator
with the Florida Department of
Health. Underhill works in
Marathon with local HIV/AIDS
patients.
"Testing is really an important
part of minority groups accessing
care. What happens is people are
not being tested and diagnosed.
So when the come in for care,
they are way past HIV and into
AIDS."
There are a number of reasons
for the disparity, she said, rang-
ing from financial security to
cultural stigma.
According to Underhill, the
Tuskegee study itself "could be a
significant factor in the low par-
ticipation of African Americans
in clinical trials and organ dona-
tion efforts and in the reluctance
of many black people in seeking
routine preventive care."
"We must build a new sense
of urgency in our community so
that no one accepts the idea that
the presence of HIV and AIDS is
inevitable," White said.

Local TV access could be on chopping block


By-KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A new state law could change
the way Florida Keys residents
watch their government at work.
Critics of the Consumer
Choice Act of 2007 passed by the
Florida Legislature in the 2007
session say it may pull the plug
on local government channels
that carry coverage of city coun-
cil and county commission meet-
ings.
"Every bill seems to have a
different name from what it actu-
ally is," Islamorada Mayor Dave
Boemer said.
"What they tell you [about the
law] sounds great, but they don't


tell you it also means you lose
your public-access channel,"
Boemer said.
The 45-page House Bill 529
was passed overwhelmingly by
both the state House and Senate
in the legislative session ended
May 4.
The Florida Association of
Counties and Florida League of
Cities joined with several con-
sumer groups in asking Gov.
CharlieCrist to veto the bill.
Advocates of the bill say it
will provide more consumer
choices by eliminating cable-
franchise agreements signed with
counties and municipalities.
Cable-television costs could


Chance jail meeting


ends in fight


Accused killer
punches out man
who turned him in
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A -fistfight at the Monroe
County Detention Center
between an accused murderer
and the man who turned him in
was "a fluke," according to
Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy
Becky Herrin.
"Both inmates are in a high-
security unit," Herrin said. "We
take them out one at a time for
recreation."
But somehow Johnny Ray
Holt, 25, got a chance to punch
38-year-old Michael Sox several
times on May 10 before law
enforcement officers broke it up.
Holt is charged with murder-
ing Rodger Keller, who worked
as a botanist for the Monroe
Association of Retarded Citizens.
Keller was found shot to death
in his Key West apartment in
March 2006 after Sox, an
acquaintance of Keller, told
police he saw Holt drive off in
Keller's car. Sox's report, which
was lodged several days after
Keller's killing, initiated the
investigation that led to Holt's
arrest.
Sox is in jail for violating pro-


MORO CONT ]


bation on a larceny conviction.
Herrin said he may have been
placed in the high-security cell-
block for disciplinary measures.
"Both inmates are in the
Alpha unit where they can't have
contact with other inmates," said
Herrin. "We even have a list of
individuals they cannot come in
contact with.
"It just so happened that Holt
was out in the recreation area
when Sox came back in."
Sox was returning to his cell
after his first appearance in-court,
according to a Sheriff's Office
report.
According to a Sheriff's
Office report, Holt punched Sox
"with a closed fist on the center
of the face, side of his head and
back of his head" before the alter-
cation was stopped.
Holt was charged with misde-
meanor battery.
In addition to the murder
charge, Holt faces burglary
charges in Alabama, six counts of
forgery and four counts of grand
theft for allegedly embezzling
from Keller while he lived with
him in 2004.
In March, Holt backed out of
an expected plea bargain in
which he agreed to plead guilty to
second-degree murder after he
learned he would be giving up his
right to appeal.


drop.
A main beneficiary would
appear to be telephone companies
that want to provide cable televi-
sion access to consumers who
already have phone lines.
"Everybody else wants to get
in on the deal," Key West
Assistant Manager John Jones
said.
Franchise agreements signed
by local governments often give
cable providers exclusive access
to an area in exchange for fees
and a degree of oversight, along
with benefits such as local chan-
nels.
Most franchise fees in 2002
were rolled into a communica-
tion-services tax collected by the
state and distributed to local gov-
ernments. Islamorada, for exam-
ple, will receive $321,485 from
the tax this year.
House Bill 529 eliminates the
power of local government to
require cable companies to sign
franchise agreements.
Local governments apparently
still will receive their share of the
communications tax, but will lose
the right to mandate a level of
cable-provider service, require
that providers go into all areas of
,a community, and provide access
channels.

"The substance of HB 529 has
little, if anything, to do with con-
sumers in this state, but more
about the choices of corporations
wanting to provide cable and
video services," the Florida
League of Cities said in a letter to
Crist.
The bill apparently would
keep local channels in place for
five years, then give the cable
providers leeway to drop them or
move them into more expensive
parts of the cable menu.
If the cable provider cur-
rently Comcast in the Keys -
were to eliminate the local channel
used to show Islamorada meeting
coverage, Boerner said, "we'd
have a hard time replacing it."
"We would have to pay for it,
and I expect it would be expen-


sive," he said.
Consumers unhappy with a
cable-television firms' service
would appeal for government
help from the state Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services rather than local govern-
ment.
"I'm not too thrilled" about
the law change, said Monroe
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro, "but it's done. There's
nothing we can do about it."
Opponents also question
whether lower rates would result.
"This bill provides no'guaran-
tee of lower rates but the certain
loss of protections found at the
local level," Florida Association
of Counties Executive Director
Chris Holley said in a letter to
Crist.

Waterfront future on table


Commission holds
workshop at
the DoubleTree
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The U.S. Navy gave Key West
a gift of 33 acres on the Truman
Waterfront in 2002, a gift that
bestowed upon the city an over-
whelming list of possibilities and
questions to be asked.
Questions like: What should
be done with all of that land?
The Key West City
Commission will tackle that
issue when it meets for a work-


shop at 6 tonight at the
DoubleTree Grand Key Resort's
Mangrove Room.
"I'd like to see everybody
who wants anything over there
[the waterfront] to be flexible,"
said Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district contains
the property. "There is only so
much acreage."
The Navy listed the waterfront
as excess property as part of 1995
federal Base Reuse and Closure
program, stipulating that it be
used primarily as green space.
In 2002 after a series of public
meetings, city officials came up
with an overall plan that included
an abundance of open space,
trees, bike paths, multi-use fields,
a harbor walk and a possible
water feature. The plans also
include 436 parking spaces to be
scattered about the park.
Since then, some members of
the community hope to add their
vision to the plan.
Two nonprofits, the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust
and the Florida Keys Assisted
Living Care Coalition, presented
their visions to the commission-
ers at. the May 1 City
Commission meeting.
The Florida Keys Assisted
Living Care Coalition has a plan
to build a $50 million senior-liv-

ing facility with 40 assisted-care
units and 95 independent-living
units on the property. The coali-
tion proposes the facility be built
on 5.3 acres of land between
Southard and Angela streets. The
majority of the land is to be
donated by the city, while 1.6
acres is to be donated by Keys
Energy Services.
Currently, the only assisted-
living facility in Key West is
Bayshore Manor, which has 16
beds.
Key West citizens must
approve the land transfer from
the city to the coalition through a
referendum, which will most
likely be on the ballot this
October. The Utility Board of
Key West, which oversees Keys
Energy, will also have to approve
the land transfer for its 1.6 acres.
If their plans are approved, the
coalition hopes to open its facili-
ty by 2009 or 2010.
Director Norma Jean Sawyer
presented the Community Land
Trust plans, asking for 6.6 acres
of the waterfront land.
The name of the proposed
community would be the YARD
(Youth Achievement Recrea-
tional Depot) complete with
new shops, an area for artists to
live and work, and of course,
workforce housing.
According to Sawyer, the
YARD would be a place that
"...children can be in the bosom
of safety."
She asked the City
Commission for a 100-year lease.
In the original transfer of the
waterfront, the Navy encouraged
city officials to use part of the site
tb enhance Bahama Village.
Lopez said there aren't many
differences between the city's
original plan for a park and
Sawyer's for the land, in respect
to a desire to build workforce
housing, a skills center and a
youth center.
"They are virtually the same
plan," he said.
According to Lopez, Sawyer's
plan is "viable," but he doesn't
think obtaining all of the 6.6
acres the group asked for is real-
istic.
Lopez said he'd like to see the
property gain a family park with
an amphitheater, where bands
and orchestras can perform.
Meanwhile, the Navy will
likely weigh in, since its security
needs changed after the terror
attacks of 2001, six years after
the land was excessed.

Cops bust up


house party


Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies broke up a
house party Saturday night at
Bay Point where some 100 kids
were partying, agency officials
say.
Deputies were a called to the
three-story Boulder Drive home
after getting complaints about
underage drinkers causing a dis-
turbance; there were no adults at
the house.
Deputies say a check of the
house revealed numerous open
liquor and beer bottles and a
beer keg. Plastic cups were
strewn all over.
A 17-year-old boy told the
officers he lives at the house and
that his parents were not home,
and he reportedly admitted he


had called friends to come over
for the party.
Deputy Becky Herrin said he
admitted drinking beer but
claimed he was not drunk, and
that the people who came to the
party brought all of the own
alcohol. Deputies charged the
youth with underage possession
of liquor and issued him a notice
to appear in court.
During the investigation,
deputies arrested a 20-year-old
from Sugarloaf Key on charges
of drunk driving. Herrin said
deputies saw him driving reck-
lessly and pulled him over, and
that he admitted being at the
house party earlier.

Denny Ifft is charged with

-Gene Evans' farm sprawls
across 1,700 acres, but his fami-
ly's agricultural future fits in just
a fraction of that space.
Borrowing technology used at
Epcot's Living Seas aquariums,
the pioneering Florida aquacul-
ture farmer plans for a future
where a mere 250 acres breeds a
species of fish new to most
American palates, while also sig-
naling the changing times in the
state's agricultural picture.
A macadamia farmer in South
Florida has the same vision for


his prized trees, which fit 100 to
an acre, as state officials tout
cor-for-ethanol as a viable cash
crop.
Florida's top crop? Citrus? Try
ferns. Greenhouse and nursery
plants top the agricultural charts
these days.
Never before have Florida's
growers and ranchers needed
innovation, creativity and smart
business sense to thrive under
increasing pressures from devel-
opment and mounting competi-
tion from imports, say agriculture
experts and diehard farmers who
would rather change what they
grow or how they raise it than
leave a way of life they love.

Summer's great
for relaxing, not
so for electronics

Summer's here and people are
hitting the beach to get a break
from the heat, and while the
beach is a great place to relax, it
can do a number on sensitive
electronics.
Changes in temperature and
humidity from an air condi-
tioned office to your hot, sticky
car can damage screens and
delicate circuits, while tiny sand
particles can find their way into
the damdest places.
In general, it's best to keep


your valuable tech gadgets out of
the hot car and off the sandy
beaches.
Following are some tips from
the Geek Squad, a nationwide
technical support company:
Waterbound iPod: H20
Audio and Otterbox sell water-
proof cases and headphones for
several models of iPods that are
fully submersible up' to 10 feet
(no scuba diving).
Remember to keep your iPod
out of direct sunlight to avoid
screen damage. Most MP3 play-
ers have LCD screens that can be
fragile. With prolonged exposure
to direct sunlight the pixels in the

screen will activate and the
screen may appear very dark. If
the screen is darker than usual,
stop using your iPod and let it sit
someplace cool and dark
overnight.
All-weather cameras: If
you're looking for a durable cam-
era, the all-weather Olympus
Stylus 600 or Pentax Optio W20
7MP Waterproof Digital Camera
are great choices for the beach.
Canon, Sony and Olympus all
sell waterproof cases for select
models of their digital cameras as
well.

Ethanol may be a big cash 'crop' for Florida farmers


CROPS / From 14

Officials do not have statistics
on how many farmers might
already be doing it, but nation-
wide, the trend is catching on.
In the mid-1990s for instance,
500,000 bushels of corn were
used in the United States to make
ethanol, a biofuel. In 2006, 2 bil-
lion bushels were expected to be
used, according to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
Blueberry grower Jerry
Mixon, 45, of Haines City kept
his hand in electrical contracting,
cattle and citrus when the family
farm diversified into blueberry
production in the 1990s.
The Mixons have begun mar-
keting blueberries around the
world and a few years ago
launched a blackberry farm in
Georgia.
Crops other farmers are plant-
ing in greater numbers than in
years past include avocados,
squash, honeydews, broccoli and
carrots.
Research from 2005 shows
farmers who diversify their land
earn nearly 22 times the income
per farm of those who don't.
The agriculture community in
Florida knows Gene Evans well.

porpoise are native to the


Caspian Sea, where it normally
takes 20 to 30 years for the fish to
produce top-shelf caviar and

Evans, 67.


He thinks he can reduce that to
seven years in Florida's warm

the fish from hatchlings. If he is

Wildlife center home to roost


It's in need
of volunteers
and some cash
By ALYSON CREAN

Goliath and Godzilla lucked
out.
Most wild birds, when sick or
injured, have little chance of sur-
vival. But these two vultures came
into the care of the Key West
Wildlife Center. And they're
doirig better.
"They are surprisingly gentle
birds," said Sarah Goodwin-
Nguyen, the operations manager.
"Their primary means of defense
is throwing up on you."
Those are the kinds of detail
you can only learn with hands-on
experience.
Goodwin-Nguyen also knows
how many fish a brown pelican
will consume in a day and what
formula is most nutritional for
newly hatched pigeons.
Goodwin-Nguyen took charge
of the center, at Sonny McCoy
Indigenous Park across from the
White Street Pier, in September.


~c~'Li L ~


Godzilla and Goliath came in separately, and both birds seem
eventually be released into the wild again.


That's when the center merged
with the Marathon Wild Bird
Center, headed up by Kelly
Grinter.
Since the merger, the Key West
facility staff has spiffed up, clear-
ing away residual damage from

Manager Sarah Goodwin-Nguyen says, despite its enjoying
human hand-feeding.


Hurricane Wilma and reconstruct-
ing pens that serve as temporary
housing for convalescing birds.
Rehabilitating wildlife is a
lonely, somewhat thankless call-
ing and the center is always short
of funds. A new state-of-the-art
aviary, funded by a grant from the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council, sits in
silent testimony of financial need.
"It's at a standstill," Goodwin-
Nguyen said. "We need funding to
finish it."
The city of Key West pushed
hard to get the structure installed
after testing of nearby waters
showed excess fecal contamina-
tion. Most people blamed the
birds; especially the chickens that
had been held at the center before
they were deported to the main-

land.
These days the facility focuses
on wild birds, leaving chicken and
iguana control to the local Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals.
Volunteers are also a rare and
valuable commodity at the center.
Like wild birds themselves, many
people who donate their time to
caring for the critters have migrat-
ed to their summer homes.
"All of our snowbird volun-
teers- have headed north,"
Goodwin-Nguyen said. "We cer-
tainly need volunteers."
Anyone interested in spending
some time to help rehabilitate
these animals can call 292-1008,
or check out the Web site at

Arsenic in Chicken
Production
In an article published by Chemical &
Engineering News on April 9, 2007,
Volume 85, Number 15, pp 34-34)
70% of chicken broilers are laced
with high levels of arsenic.
Roxarsone 4-hydroxy-enitrobenzen-
earsonic acid is by far the most
common arsenic-based additive used
in chicken feed.
According the the EPA, long-term
exposure to arsenic can cause bladder,
lung, kidney and colon cancer, as well
as deleterious immunological, neuro-
logical and endorcrine effects.
If you've eaten chicken, you have
been exposed to arsenic.
So, what do you do to limit your
exposure to this, and other toxins?
At The Total Wellness Center, we uti-
lizean EBPro Cellular Cleanse
System to pull toxins from the body.
Call us to find out how we can help
detoxify your body of the many
known chemicals you are exposed to
on a daily basis.

This year's Marathon

Still,
Carbonell said
her presence
*. should attract
Spike TV
crews filming
a reality series
based on the
Bullrun rally,
as well as
HILTON paparazzi and
other media attention to the boat
races and to Marathon.
"This is major exposure for
our area," Carbonell said. "We're
bringing in a catering company
and feeding them lunch. Then
we'll probably do some boat
rides, and maybe take Paris out
under the bridge."
The Marathon Offshore
Grand Prix, in its fifth year, is
sanctioned by Super Boat
International and the American
Power Boat Association and
offers racers the unique thrill of
driving under both the old and
new Seven Mile bridges at
speeds well over 100 mph.
The course runs roughly
seven miles per lap, starting in
Florida Bay and proceeding
westward to the first checkpoint.
Racers the make a 90-degree left
turn to head to the Atlantic
Ocean, passing between the
bridge foundations.
Two more hard left turns point
the racers back to the bay side,
again speeding through the nar-
row pass under the bridge. A
right turn in the bay takes racers


across the finish line or to a hair-
pin left turn that completes each
lap.
About 25 teams will compete
in classes such as Superboat
Unlimited, Superboat Vee
Unlimited, Superboat, Super Vee
and Super Cat classes as well as
smaller P-series classes.
Local race Director Randy
Mears said activities surround-
ing the race have decreased this
year due to less funding from the
Tourist Development Council
and a lack of support from a cor-
porate sponsor. Last year, Cay
Clubs helped fund the race and
almost entirely sponsored the
two days of concerts for the Bash
at the Bridge.
"The event is somewhat
scaled back with not a lot of frills
and fluff, basically just good
races," Means said. "The dry
pits will have.a little party atmos-
phere, and we're trying to do
some parties Friday and Saturday
night at some local bars."
The dry pits will be open from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and
Saturday, with teams launching
boats at the wet pits at Faro
Blanco Marine Resort Saturday
and Sunday.
The actual race begins at 1
p.m. Sunday and is viewable by
boat outside of the designated
race course or on land at Sunset
Park at the east end of the Seven
Mile Bridge. For more informa-
tion and a complete schedule,

Keys alive with tournaments


Dolphin, tarpon
must be running
for their lives

As usual, weekends in Florida
Keys fishing can be unbelievably
busy. To try to cover everything,
I'll attempt what I fondly call
rapid-fire:
The inaugural Habitat for
Humanity Dolphin Tournament
was held over the weekend in
Marathon. Brace Ferraro, presi-
dent of the Middle Keys Habitat
chapter, admitted to riding the
wave of success of last week-
end's Bull &. Cow Dolphin
Tournament.
"In the planning stages, we
were hoping for 60 to 70 anglers
being a first-year event. We came
up with some great prize money
thanks to First State Bank, Miami
Executive Aviation and Dot
Palm, and were elated when the
tournament hit '100 anglers,
announced at Friday night's cap-
tain's meeting."
The final tally was 43 boats
and 101 anglers.
As the weigh station at Big
Time Bait & Tackle was winding
down, the J.W. Drott team fishing
with Capt. Jason Long on the
Best Bet from the Seven Mile
Marina broke the two-way log-
jam with a 35-pound bull dol-
phin.
"We had the bull hooked up
for a couple of jumps and then he
spit the hook. We also had the
cow hooked and noticed the bull
- charging up behind her again. We
then pitched a bait and nailed
him," according to Long.
For more information and full
results, call Big Time Bait &
Tackle at 289-0199.



"How does he continue to do
it?"
That was asked of the Capt.
Paul Ross this year as he contin-
ued his torrid string of sailfish
victories.
It was asked of the Delph boys
out of Key West during their
year-long domination of the
Southern Kingfish Association in
2005.
The same inquiry was proba-
bly posed as Islamorada's Jim
Bokor enjoyed his winning run
on honefishing tournaments.


This is the winning team in last week's 41st annual Marathon
International Tarpon Tournament. They are angler John
Murphy, tournament director Dave Navarro, grand-champion
angler Mike Padowski and tournament volunteer Al Skitini.


Now add
Capt. Tadd
VanDemark
>'' as the one
Getting that
Question.
T h e
2006 sea-
son-ending
F L W
Redfish
Series
champi-
onship was
Cal Sutphin won by
K e y
Largo's own VanDemark and his
partner Capt. Blair Wiggins of
TV's "Addictive Fishing" fame.
As this year's FLW Redfish
Series has just started heating up,
VanDemark did not have time to
cool down, with a victory in Port
Aransas, Texas, over the week-
end, netting him and his new
partner, Kevin Shaw from Stiffy
Push-Poles, a cool $50,000.
Five days of pre-fishing fol-
lowed by game planning each
night of the three-day event made
the difference, according to
VanDemark.
"What Kevin and I did was
calculate the night before what it
would take to put us in the top
five on Day 2. Once we caught
two fish that fit what we were
looking for, we stopped fishing
completely. We could have con-
tinued fishing hard trying to gain
a couple of ounces, but we want-
ed to protect the school of redfish
by not hitting them hard. Day 3
came and it proved a wise deci-
sion. Thie redfish were stacked up
on that soot and it was on like


Donkey Kong and we sealed the
deal."
The highlight wasn't the vic-
tory or the money; it was
VanDemark's wife Liz by his side
on Mother's Day as he accepted
the check and trophy. That is
something he says he'll never
forget.



Capt. Dave Navarro is into
self-punishment.
What normal tournament
director would go through the
process of putting together four
tarpon tournaments in a year's
time then hold all four in a
two-week period?
Marathon has had the honor of
being home to the quad of bridge
tarpon tournaments thanks to
Navarro and his tackle shop, the
World Class Angler, for years
now with the Tarponian being the
baby of the bunch in its first year.
The other three are the Ladies,
the McDonald's and the oldest
one, the 41st annual Marathon
International, which concluded
over the weekend..
In the International, angler
Mike Podowski from North Fort
Myers bested the 27-person field
fishing with Marathon's Capt.
Jack Callion. Podowski caught
and released six tarpon on. 12-
pound test over the two days.
Callion was just edged out by
Capt. B.J. Meyer as first-place
captain. Meyer's team total was
one tarpon more than Callion's..

ment, call the World Class Angler

Keys Fishing


Action's as hot as the air


Wow is fishing awesome
right now or what? It doesn't
seem to matter which venue you
pick; it's been hot.
I know there are some who
haven't had much good luck but
for the most part, especially with
the guides, it has been great.
To qualify what I'm talking
about, understand that a cooler
full of fish does not necessarily
represent a great day of fishing;
understand this is a sport and
there are times when the fish win.
But getting your butt kicked
can be just as enjoyable as a day
catching a boatload. The thing is
that you will be back to those fish

that kicked
your butt to
try again
and see if
you can't
get the
upper hand.
It's the
Challenge
of fishing.
Most
M o s t
every
venue we
have here
Dave Navarro the bay,
bridge
channels, all of the area flats,
Hawk Channel, the reef and even
offshore have been hot with
action.
It also caused some congested
thinking about just what to go for
on such good days. You almost
had to put on blinders to go do
whatever you wanted to and not
get confused by all the other
options.
Flats fishing was just about as
good as it gets and should remain
the same for mome time. The mix
of the big three bonefish, tar-
pon and permit on the flats
right now make it hard for
anglers to target just one at a
time. You almost have to have
three guns (rods) loaded and
ready at all times.
The bay continues to be good
with trout and snapper, as well as
a good mix of cobia and many
other species mixed in. Take
good chum, fish the tall grass bot-
tom and you should have your
way.
Many of the snapper are on
the move now, so even if one of
your favorite spots were void of
fish last week, it doesn't mean
The change can even be from day
to day.
Hawk Channel is full of fish
moving through to either the
bridge channels or the reef to
spawn (if you had only one
chance a year, would you miss
it?) That is why these fish are on
a mission.
The tarpon are filling in the
local bridge channels faster than
the tourists at Christmas time.
Some very big fish have been
caught this week and you can
only count on more arriving
soon.
Literally hundreds of tarpon
were hooked in the recent tarpon
tournaments in the Middle Keys.
All of that was in the evenings.
The action at the bridges is hot


especially in the evenings the last
couple of hours of daylight. o a.
couple of hours after dark. 'It's
easy to do and doesn't take a lot
of time or fuel, so give it a shot -
soon.
The reef action has been quite
exciting for a mixed variety, as
well.
The drop-off, what I like to
call the edge,.has been especially
good for a mix of good dinner
fish and the occasional butt-kick-
ing from something that still
remains "unknown to the angler
but has sparked their interest to a
point that they have to return to
try again.
This area, as well as the water
just offshore, is among the most
prolific for fish in the Keys. It
holds such a wide variety of
species that it would take a huge
book to list them all.-
Offshore is just now getting
right. The dolphin started good
this past weekend and seem to be
on in-bound mode. More and
more have been seen and caught
each day.
Location varies from day to
day but for the most part, within
the first 8 miles beyond the reef
has held enough for most every-
one. As most of you know, I like
to high-speed troll to cover more
ground in the time allotted and in
turn cross over more fish.
It is a good way to go now,
with the fish being somewhat
scattered out over the areas. It
worked well this past weekend,
with a limit of dolphin in only a
couple of hours. That was With-
out hitting the schoolies but
rather pairs of bigger fish. Give it
a try;- it's productive.
Speaking of butt kicking and
offshore, this week's free fishing
seminar is on swordfish and other
biggies of the deep. After an hour
or two fighting those fish and
having one break off, you don't
know if you are angry or relieved.
The seminar begins at 6:30
p.m. at our marine educational
center (mile marker 50 bayside)
and I'll be there; if you were
looking for me earlier this week,
I was contemplating checking
into the Betty Ford Clinic after 15
straight days of tarpon toura-
ments and the associated parties.
It's better now that my liver quit
Calling in sick from overwork.
