Former NAS chief
chosen as next
Key West manager
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Jim "Dagwood" Scholl, cho-
sen Monday by the Key West
City Commission to be the
Southernmost City's next top
administrator, says he knows
he'll have some challenges to
overcome, switching from a
career in the military to a career
in city government.
"I've got a lot to learn,"
Scholl said. "But that's OK.
Learning never stops."
"Obviously, there is transition
period," he told the Keynoter. "I
have a job I have to resign from."
"I thought I was ready to
retire, but I'm not done yet,"
Scholl said. He added, "I believe
I know this community. Not only
Key West, but Monroe County."
Scholl was chosen over six
other candidates to replace the
retiring Julio Avael, whose last
day is Aug. 15 after 11 years in
the job. Scholl's start date
depends on contract negotiations.

They're supposed
to be ready
for generators
Miami Herald

Florida Keys gas stations
should have no problems
pumping gas after a hurricane
this year if they complied
with a new Florida law requir-
ing the stations be wired for
generator hookup or have a
generator installed by the
beginning of hurricane season.
But with the June 1 deadline
looming, there is widespread
confusion among station own-
ers over who must comply with
the law, and a number of Keys
and other South Florida sta-
tions still lack backup power.
Last week, Florida's Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion said the new law which
requires all stations within a
half-mile of an interstate high-
way or evacuation route be
prewired so a generator can be
quickly installed applied to
only 254 Florida stations.
Not one was in South
Florida.
But on Friday, the DEP said
the statute actually applies to
1,584 stations, including 124 in
Miami-Dade, Broward and
Monroe counties. An "over-
sight," the DEP explained.


Now, station owners are
scrambling to comply, and
state officials said Monday that
145 DEP inspectors will fan
out across Florida this week to
determine how many stations
are ready.

that grow into nine hurricanes,
including five intense hurri-
canes.
It should be remembered,
however, that long-range,
full-season forecasts tend to
be less accurate than real-
time forecasts of an actual
storm.
At this time last year,
government forecasters pre-
dicted that 13 to 16 tropical
storms would become eight
to 10 hurricanes, four to six
of them intense.
Fortunately, that was
wrong. In actuality, 10


named storms grew into five
hurricanes, two of which
were intense.
But even if one season
comes in on the light side,
virtually all experts agree
that we are in the middle of a
decades-long period of
unusually active .hurricane
seasons.
In addition, scientists say
that La Nina conditions in
the western Pacific are like-
ly to support hurricane
development this year. The
relatively cool sea tempera-
tures that mark La Nina sup-
press crosswinds that other-
wise would tear apart devel-
oping hurricanes.


signals or declined comment.
Of the 23 Keys stations list-
ed, only three were generator
ready Circle K in Key West
and Sunoco and BP in Key
Largo.
Rich Micelli, manager of
the BP station, told the Herald
he's been aware he needs a
generator and has been work-
ing to get one. But, he said, "I
don't see it getting handled
before June 1."
"I wanted a clarification,
which I didn't really get, until
... today," Micelli said after
receiving a letter Monday.
"Why spend $5,000 and then
find out you need to spend
$2,500?"
Dion's Oil operates four of
the listed Keys stations, but
Dion's representatives did not
return calls for comment
Tuesday.
Last week, Gov. Charlie
Crist said he would hold sta-
tions accountable if not in
compliance by June 1. Despite
the mix-up, he continued to
talk tough Monday.
"The number of stations
identified in the DEP report has
increased [but] the news should
come as no surprise to the sta-
tion owners," Crist said. "DEP
sent a letter to all retail gas sta-
tions across the state to inform
them of the legislation and its
requirements in December."
The legislation isn't clear
about penalties for noncompli-
ance, although DEP spokes-
woman Sarah Williams said the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services is responsible for
enforcement.
Jim Smith, president of the
Florida Petroleum Marketers
and Convenience Store
Association, said the mantra
after Wilma that there was
plenty of gas but not enough
power was not true.
"After Wilma, we could not
keep up with the panic buying,
and the fuel could not be deliv-
ered to the stations," Smith
said. "I don't think they should
have passed this bill to begin
with."
After Wilma, many Upper
Keys gas stations were packed
with customers driving down
from Miami-Dade County,
where gas was not available.

ADVANTtAGE
REOWE DESIGNERl" ROBERT KOCI


Officials wrestle
with fewer options
for storm season
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto said he has to consider the
possibility of storing hurricane
debris at the city events field
between 98th and 99th streets if
another Wilma-type event
occurs.
Hurricane season starts June 1.
"We really don't have any
options at this point, -and we need
to figure this out before we get
too far into hurricane season,"
said Puto, who heard much
debris talk at the annual
Governor's Hurricane
Conference last week in Fort
Lauderdale.
The ability to store and
process debris before it's hauled
to landfills can save the city mil-
lions of dollars as opposed to
hauling directly to landfills, Puto
said. But he and other Keys offi-
cials are having problems finding
the room.
County Administrator Tom
Willi said four of the five debris
sites used after Hurricane Wilma
are no longer available.
"We may have a site available
at the comer of U.S. 1 and Burton
Drive [in Key Largo], but I hate
to use that," Willi said of the
property now proposed for
affordable housing.
Assistant County Engineer
Judy Clarke said there are con-
tracts to store debris on property
on Rockland and Ramrod keys.
Clarke said that after Wilma,


the county spent about $11.3 mil-
lion (being reimbursed by the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency) for contractors to pick
up debris, store it, mulch brush
and truck it to mainland landfills.
The cost does not include
FEMA-required debris monitors,
which inspect and verify all
debris as hurricane-related.
Key West officials said the
city can still use a leased site on
Rockland Key it used after
Hurricane Wilma, but that site
may not be available next year.
"That's where we're going to
be putting the [proposed] new
transfer station," Assistant City
Manager John Jones said. "Once
we build the transfer station,
that's going to be another prob-
lem" using that site.
In Islamorada, Village
Manager Gary Word said staff
has identified about eight poten-
tials sites for this season.
"They need to have easy
access off of the highway, and we
want to locate them where people
are not disturbed," Word said.
"Environmental sensitivity, that's
another big thing and that's what
[former debris site] Theater of
The Sea raised about their dol-
phins."
Marathon may be in the worst
shape, as Puto said Earthmark
Co. likely won't allow the city to
store debris at the Knight's Key
Campground, used after Wilma,
as Earthmark opens' up more
campsites.
The city stored appliances
(white goods) on property at the
city marina after Wilma, but that
land now contains sewage pipes
used with temporary FEMA trail-


ers. Puto said he plans to keep the
pipes there in case the trailers are
needed again.
Puto said its not certain if the
city can use some county land on
Crawl Key, and he said city parks
would be too badly damaged to
use. That leaves the events field.
"We could put white goods
out there, which is the lesser
evil," Puto said. "It is fenced off,
and the city [hall offices] is
already out there to watch it. It
would probably only be used for
a few weeks."
But at least one resident said
he doubts the neighborhood
would let that happen.
"Could you imagine if you
lived on those streets and your
house was for sale and you had
2,000 or 3,000 white goods right
behind it?" said 98th Street resi-
dent Scott Janke, who was city
manager before Puto.
"I was city manager when the
city bought that property ... and
the council made promises it
would be used specifically for an
events field and city hall," Janke
continued. "For the city to be
investigating something without
some kind of notice, to me, is just
bad city government."
Mayor Chris Bull, who
planned to discuss the issue dur-
ing Tuesday's council meeting,
said residents might have to deal
with the debris for the good of
the city.
"This community has always
pulled together in trying to do
what's right for everybody," Bull
said. "For white goods, it could
be a staging area. It won't be
something that's going to be an
18-month process, and that
would be a very minimal contri-
bution in that area."

Six candidates
pitch themselves
to commission
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Within the walls of Old City
Hall Monday, six hopeful candi-
dates attempted to wow the Key
West. City Commission in an
effort to win the position of city
manager.
Current Manager Julio Avael's
contract is up Aug. 15, but he will
stay employed as a consultant for
the next manager Jim
"Dagwood" Scholl, unless con-
tract negotiations fall though (see
story, Page 1).
The commissioners inter-
viewed each candidate for an
hour.
Scholl, of Cudjoe Key, is
range systems manager of the
Key West Tactical Air Crew and
was commanding officer of
Naval Air Station Key West from
2003 to 2006. He told the com-
mission he is a "team builder."
When Commissioner Bill
Verge asked him what he thinks
about allowing gays in the mili-
tary, he said, "Anybody who
wants to serve their country
should be able to serve their
country."

administrator for Hendry County

from. 1996 to'2007, said he was
impressed with his tour of the
city.
He noted his experience with
an affordable housing crunch in
Hendry County where, he
said, 600 families became home-
less after Hurricane Wilma. He
also noted he understands the
importance of the bed tax in a
tourist economy.
Larry Deetjen was city
manager of Deerfield Beach from
1994 to 2006.
Deetjen presented a number of
infrastructure projects he over-
saw in Deerfield, including a
beach walkway recently complet-
ed.
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
asked him about workforce diver-
sity, and Deetjen responded by
saying that in his 12-year tenure,
he increased minority representa-
tion to 33 percent in Deerfield.
Lopez also asked him, "What
happened at the airport?," refer-
ring to a reported incident in
which Deetjen allegedly made
racist remarks to a Palm Beach
County airport employee.
Deetjen said the incident was
politically led by "hate mongers."
Commissioner Harry Bethel
asked the question previously -
and directly.
"Do you consider yourself a
racist?" Bethel asked.
"No sir," Deetjen quickly

replied.
+ Jeff Hathaway is the recent-
ly retired director of the Joint
Interagency Task Force South in
Key West.
"I certainly hope to be able to
continue a long legacy of public
service by coming out of the
Coast Guard uniform and moving
right into the uniform as a city
manager of Key West,"
Hathaway said.
Hathaway said he has a pas-
sion for the maritime environ-
ment and for Key West, where he


has lived for three years.
Hathaway said he has integrity
and accountability, and that his
only fault is judging and over-
evaluating.
Gary Edwards is city man-
ager of Moberly, Mo., and served
as city administrator of Festus,
Mo., from 1999 to 2004.
Edwards said he has experi-
ence in emergency management
and dealing with the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, given the numerous
floods in Missouri.


+ James Malloy is town
administrator of Sturbridge,
Mass.
Asked how he deals with
diversity, Malloy said people in
Sturbridge "don't even bat an
eye" when it comes to same-sex
marriages.
The final result: The candidate
with the lowest score on a grad-
ing scale from commissioners
won. Scholl received 10 points,
Hathaway 16, Edwards 23,
Deetjen 32, Malloy and Baird 33.


Scholl looks to 'manage change'


SCHOOL/ From 1

Scholl now earns $100,000 a
year as range systems manager
for the Key West Tactical
Aircrew Combat System. The
salary range set by the commis-
sion for the next manager is
$165,000 to $200,000.
SCommissioners asked the six
candidates a cannonade of ques-
tions over the course of a seven-
hour special meeting at Old City
Hall and ultimately decided on
Scholl, a four-year Keys resident
who .lives on Cudjoe Key with
his wife, Jolene.
School took control of Naval
Air Station Key West as com-
manding officer of July 2003 and
served until 2006, when he

retired, ending
his 27-year
career in the
Navy. As com-
manding offi-
cer, he was
responsible for
a $35 million
budget and
2,800 person-
nel.


He was educated at Miami
University in Oxford, Ohio; the
Naval War College in Newport,
R.I.; and finally at the Navy
Shore Installation Commanders
Course in Washington, D.C.
Scholl is an active member of
the Key West community, serv-
ing on the board of Big

"Capt. Scholl has always been
a great public servant," NAS Key
West spokesman Jim Brooks
said.
In his speech to the commis-
sion, he highlighted his experi-
ence with hurricane prepared-
ness.
"I'm really looking forward to
moving ahead and working with
the commission," Scholl said. He
mentioned the upcoming budget
process and his eagerness to work
in that process.
Scholl has been active in find-
ing a solution to the city's most
daunting challenge: Increasing
affordable housing.
He worked to allow civilian
base workers to live in extra
houses at NAS at about half to
two-thirds the rate of what resi-
dents have to pay in the city,
Brooks said.
The base has about 1,000 beds
and roughly 400 rooms, making
it the largest de facto hotelier in
town.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
asked Scholl what he thinks the
biggest challenge ahead will be
for Key West. He replied with,
"Managing change."
"I think.he'll do well. He's a
likable person, Commissioner
Harry Bethel said. "Hopefully we
can make some major changes
with new blood."
Bethel was chosen to negoti-
ate terms of Scholl's contract and
hopes to have a finalized deal
available for the next City
Commission meeting, June 5.
If contract negotiations fail,
the commission will try to work
something out with its No. 2 pick,
recently retired U.S. Coast Guard
Adm. Jeff Hathaway.

BXRL Executive Director

"The BXRL postponed the

flawlessly," Gautreaux wrote.
"We are looking forward to
holding the event in the Turks
and Caicos later this season and
the remaining three legs in other
Caribbean locations as planned."
The fourth tournament is
scheduled to begin June 22 in St.
Martin. The 2007 series began
March 30 in Marathon.
"Maybe they can try to get it
going again next year but it
seems a little late to do anything
this year," Ross said.
The BXRL was described as
a "privately held entity produced
by Cristal Clear Productions, a
Clearwater, Fla.-based television
production company." A tele-
phone number listed for the
BXRL headquarters is the Cay
Clubs main office in Clearwater:
Last year, 11 teams paid entry
fees and costs to compete in the
competition. Six teams fished in
Marathon this year.
No results for the Bimini
tournament have been posted in
the BXRL Web site.
"You got a sense something
like this was coming," Ross said.
The BXRL "was good for the
sport," he added. "And we were
in second place with four events
to go."
"The series will also get rich-
er in its [2007] round, adding
more teams for a minimum of
12," Gautreaux wrote in Marlin
Magazine's February 2007 arti-
cle on the league.
The Marlin article says Isaacs


wanted to make a conservation-
oriented fishing show, with cam-
eras on every entered boat to
tape the teamwork and excite-
ment of the catch.
A unique set of rules required
billfish to be brought within 3
feet of the boat before the line
was cut. A fish had to be proper-
ly tagged to count for significant
points. Sailfish, white marlin,
blue marlin and swordfish
counted in the competition.
"We'll see what happens,"
said Chouest, the team owner.
"We wish them the best."
A spokesman for ESPN's out-
door division said the network
plans to air the BXRL series in
early 2008. The network does
not discuss the financial terms it
has with its show providers, he
said.
Cay Clubs formed in 2004. In
the Keys, it quickly acquired 14
hotels and marinas in roughly
two years, with more than 2,800
units and 900 boat slips. Along
with other properties, it's listed
$108 million worth of real estate
holdings in federal regulatory
filings.
But the company also owed
$87 million as of Dec. 31, and is
scheduled to make $74 million
in principal payments this year
alone.
Two weeks ago, some 80
employees were suddenly laid
off. And last week, more were
let go as the company started
merging some charterboat oper-
ations to save money.

Latest gas-price spikes

are not going unnoticed

Keys drivers watched with jaws dropping as the latest round of
gas price hikes began to appear in advance of Memorial Day
weekend.
It hardly qualifies as news anymore, since gas prices have his-
torically gone up right before the peak auto getaway weekend
that previews our summer driving season,
But this time it felt particularly cruel, coming on the heels of
more price hikes that have ratchetedup the cost of getting from
here to there.
With the summer travel season officially begun this weekend,
you can see why tourism officials are nervous and not just
here in the Keys.
Even up in Tallahassee, the state's top leaders are concerned
about where gas prices are headed and how it will impact the
state's economy, which is overly dependent on tourists spending
money here.
Indeed, Gov. Charlie Crist on Tuesday joined with governors
from 21 other states demanding Congress probe the "sudden
spike" in gas prices that have hit nationwide in the past two
weeks.
The Associated Press and other sources cite a 19-cent increase
in the average cost per gallon just since last month. This is based
on a survey conducted by the American Automobile
Association, which found the average price at $3.10 in Florida.
Of course, here in the Keys, where we're used to paying more
for just about everything, that $3.10 looks pretty good right now,
given prices up to $3.40 per gallon at the highest-priced outlets
in Key West monitored Tuesday.
In a press release, the 22 governors make the argument that
many motorists have been voicing for some time, although usu-
ally with a bit more venom in their words.
"The reasons for these massive increases [in gas prices] do not
appear to be tied to any recent global political or weather
events," the governors said in their letter to congressional lead-
ers.
"Floridians and visitors to our state are extremely frustrated
with rising gas prices," Crist added, "especially as we approach
the upcoming holiday weekend and summer travel season."
Given how quickly Congress responds to such things, and
given the history of Washington catering to big-oil interests both
domestic and foreign, we don't anticipate any real relief anytime
soon.
In fact, we think the idea being pursued by Miami-Dade to
suspend some local gas taxes during the summer season has
some merit. It's symbolic, only, accounting for only 5 cents per
gallon compared to the state's 24-cents per gallon tax.
But it may be the only relief in sight this summer.

Delta's lower Marathon fares need local support


EDITOR:
Recent letters to the editor have bemoaned
the fact that commercial air service from
Florida Keys Marathon Airport was more
expensive than similar flights from the Key
West International Airport.
We have heard you and acted accordingly.
I am very pleased to announce that Delta
Airlines (the only air carrier currently serving
Marathon) has dropped all Marathon fares to
be the same price point, restriction and avail-
ability as at Key West.
We have strong interest from Gulfstream
Continental to also serve Marathon in the fall
with the same flight schedule to Fort
Lauderdale and Tampa that we had under con-
tract with them before the Transportation
Security Administration problem forced them


to postpone their entry into the Marathon mar-
ket.
Although passenger-load factors so far for
the Delta service have been encouraging espe-
cially for a new market, I am concerned
because we will soon be into the slower sum-
mer months, when passenger numbers are tra-
ditionally lower at both airports.
If the citizens of the Florida Keys wish to
have year-round air service at Marathon, they
must support it during the upcoming summer
months as well as during the winter. The new
fare structure that puts Marathon fares at par
with Key West should make it easier to do so.

School resource officers too valuable to cut


EDITOR:
I was just informed that our elected sheriff,
Richard Roth, in his infinite wisdom, has cut the
school resource officers for Key Largo and
Plantation Key elementary schools. With all that
has happened in other schools around the coun-
try, I thought that our sheriff has learned some-
thing from this.
He has also cut the budget from the DARE
(Drug Awareness and Resistance Education)
program, which teaches our childrento stay
away from drugs and their abuses; and the fund-
ing for the Explorers for the younger children,
which teaches our children about being a police
officer, discipline and self respect for them-

Saunders knows tourism
EDITOR:
During the 2007 legislative session, Gov.
Charlie Crist and the Florida Legislature rein-
forced the importance of Florida's tourism by
approving an additional $8.95 million for Visit
Florida, the state's official tourism marketing
corporation.
This funding will allow Visit Florida to
increase the state's visibility through its market-
ing campaigns and is necessary to generate more
sales tax revenues for the state. In a competitive
environment, it is important that Visit Florida
help keep Florida tourism at the top of the mind
for potential travelers and stay ahead of the mar-
keting curve.
The Partnership for Florida's Tourism, an
alliance of more than 140 tourism leaders
statewide, thanks state Rep. Ron Saunders, who
represents the Keys, for recognizing the impor-
tance of Florida's No. 1 industry tourism. We
look forward to working with Rep. Saunders as
well as the entire Florida Legislature in the
future to ensure that additional funding is made
available to strengthen Florida's tourism indus-
try.
An investment in tourism marketing is a
smart investment for Florida's future.

selves and others. If one child is lost to drugs,
the price is too high.
The new budget has not even been proposed
and the state hasn't changed any of the proper-
ty-tax requirements, yet Sheriff Roth is already
running scared. Our politicians forget about
Proposition No. 13 in California, which said
they would cut the property taxes in half if
passed, but nothing happened when they did.
I suggest the sheriff find other ways to tight-
en up his budget, not on the lives of our chil-
dren, who could be lost to drugs because they
didn't attend the DARE programs. The price is
too high to cut those resources.
The school resource officers keep our chil-
dren safe by being at the lights everyday when
they cross U.S. 1 and monitoring the safety of
our schools during the day.
I suggest that if the sheriff wants to cut the
budget, he start with his salary. I.also suggest
that all the parents in Monroe County call the
County Commission, Monroe County School
Board and the Sheriff's Office and complain
that we cannot have these important school
resource officers cut when they are so impor-
tant.

City politics make for good laughs


EDITOR:
I have had the pleasure of visit-
ing your beautiful piece of para-
dise. I stay in touch with those I
met and I read the local newspa-
pers via the Internet for entertain-
ment.
Marathon city politics keeps me
in good spirits. I'd like to offer up
some items that have recently tick-
led my funny bone:
It's hilarious to read that a
City Council member is focusing
on insignificant matters such as
freezing wages. Why does the city
spend enormous sums of money
for consultants? The finance direc-
tor and legal counsel are consult-
ants. Hire a legal counsel and
finance director as city employees
and consulting fees could be
reduced by upwards of $1 million
a year.
It is also a joke to read that
the city manager says he may
implement a hiring freeze.
Building and planning manpower
has risen dramatically since incor-
poration, although the number of
building permits handed out each


year hasn't changed. Developer
activity and/or bad management
resulted in significant increases in
city manpower. Developer con-
struction spending has now
stopped. The city should follow
Cay Clubs' lead and slash head-
count.
The classic yuk yuk hap-
pened during the Original
Marathon Seafood Festival. There
was the former mayor singing on
the Bartus Memorial Shell stage.
No more capital spending or
memorial projects.
Make sure the sewer project
is funded by the state or federal,
governments before you spend any
money. Homeowners do not want
to spend thousands of dollars to
send their waste to a treatment
facility. However, if you funnel it
back to City Hall, there would be
a waiting line.
The lip service is laughable.
Another day of reckoning is com-
ing next election.

Cat lovers are generous


EDITOR:
Thank you to the generous and
caring Marathon people and sea-
sonal tourists who donate regularly
to the Publix food bin for
Forgotten Felines. The food feeds
many homeless cats in the commu-
nity, which keeps them healthier -
and therefore they lead a decent
life in the colonies. Publix has
been very generous in letting us
keep the bin at the door leading
out on the east side.
Forgotten Felines volunteers
regularly trap, spay and neuter
feral cats to control their popula-
tions. This is very effective if all


the females are prevented from
reproducing. We are always in
need of more volunteers to help
with our effort. If you would like
to help out and can be trained to
trap or feed a colony, please call
743-6969 in the daytime.
Thank you again to Marathon
Publix shoppers who continue to
support the well being of cats who
are not fortunate to have a home.
Animal lovers in the community
are very special generous people.
Their compassion is appreciated
by the cats and us volunteers.

Deed restrictions work


EDITOR:
A few weeks ago I had the
pleasure of working with a young
couple that was trying to buy its
first home. When we started our
search, there were very few homes
available in a price range that
would not stretch their budget to
the limit, and most of them needed
considerable work. Time was run-
ning out;.the home they were rent-
ing was being sold.
Fate smiled upon us, a home
that had been built under an
affordable-housing deed restriction
came on the market. It was just
what they were looking for, and
priced at least $100,000 less than


anything else we had looked at.
They met with Rick Casey of
the Middle Keys Community Itand
Trust, who verified they met the
guidelines. We wrote the offer that
day, and in less than a month
Jason, Michelle and their two
daughters were in a home of their
own.
Of all the real estate transac-
tions I have been a part of, none
have given me more satisfaction
than helping this family. In my
opinion, this is a perfect example
of how affordable housing deed
restrictions work.

Stamp Out Hunger drive last week. All
the employees and carriers went beyond

Environmental academy to open this fall


Coral Shores
starting new
4-year program
By ERIN MAGEE
emagee@keysreporter.com

Forty-two incoming freshmen
at Coral Shores High School will
enter the new Academy of
Environmental Sciences this
September, a program with "a
high academic focus preparing
students for post-high school
education and/or a career in the
environmental field," according
to the school's Web site.
Coral Shores teachers, par-
ents and representatives from
several environmentally focused
organizations including the
World Wildlife Fund, Marine
Lab, Outward Bound, the
Florida Park Service and the
Keys Environmental Restoration
Fund gathered May 15 to discuss
specifics.


Alesa Rehmann, the project
director, said students that enter
the program together remain a
team for all four years of high
school. They will have the same
teachers and work together on
school projects and in partner-
ship with the community, she
said.
Student schedules will be
organized around their science
classes, and other classes like
English and social studies will
be linked to the academy focus
by integrating environmental
themes, she said.
"We won't ignore other sub-
jects.' Students will still read
'Romeo and Juliet,'" said Mike
Arnold, a teacher at Coral
Shores. "English and history will
just enforce the environmental
theme."
Academy students can also
pick one minor area of interest,
including Web design, video
production, marine science and


art, Rehmann said.
The four-year schedule
includes environmental science
classes, biology, chemistry,
marine-science data collection,
speech and debate, and will cul-
minate with an internship and a
senior scientific research project
during students' senior year.
Rehmann stressed the impor-
tance of "real-world service
learning experiences," which
allow students to use their
knowledge to help the. local
environment.
The most beneficial aspect of
an academy is that it teaches stu-
dents to be self-motivated, said


Nicole Lynch-Cruz, a graduate
of the Academy of Environ-
mental Science and Technology
at Forest Hill High School in
Palm Beach County.
"If you can do this, you can
do anything," she said.
Rehmann said that while stu-
dents have to decide to join the
Academy before their freshman
year, they can always decide to
leave the program and students
outside the academy can take
academy classes.
Dave Makepeace, a Coral
Shores teacher involved with the
program, said the academy is not
as restrictive as it may sound and


its goal is to get students
involved with environment con-
servation at an earlier age.
"This is a work in progress.
It's going to adapt. It's going to
change," he said.
The academy cost the
Monroe County School District
nothing and is funded primarily
by a state grant for $40,000.
Academy organizers are seeking
more funding from state grants
and community help.

emy partner, visit csh.monroe

Permit waiver extended


Commissioners
basically freeze
the deadline
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Property owners whose con-
struction has been stalled by a
federal injunction banning new
flood insurance policies where
endangered species live got a
break from the Monroe County
Commission.
At its May 16 meeting in Key
Largo, the commission unani-
mously extended a building-per-
mit deadline waiver for people
who have been unable to secure


flood insurance on new construc-
tion.
That means building permits
active when the injunction was
handed down remain active.
In' September 2005, U.S.
District Court Judge K. Michael
Moore issued the injunction
against the Federal Emergency
Management Agency in a 15-
year-old lawsuit filed against
FEMA and the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service by the National
Wildlife Federation, Florida
Wildlife Federation and
Defenders of Wildlife.
The lawsuit alleges that by
issuing flood coverage where
there may be endangered habitat,

Sheriff's Office
releases Expo stats

The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office has released specific
numbers stemming from the
Holiday Expo based at Holiday
Isle Resort in Islamorada May
13 to 16.
The Sheriff's Office, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and U.S. Coast
Guard all patrolled the resort
and adjacent waters, including
the Sandbar just offshore.
Overall, the Sheriff's Office
made seven arrests for drunk
boating, 30 Marchman Act
detentions of intoxicated people,
three drug arrests, two simple


battery arrests and one aggravat-
ed battery arrest, one trespassing
arrest and one shoplifting arrest.
There were four notices to
appear for misdemeanor posses-
sion of marijuana.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission deployed four ves-
sels and eight officers for the
two days, resulting in 391 vessel
inspections, 37 boating cita-
tions, five arrests for drunk boat-
ing, five resource-violation cita-
tions, 478 boating-safety written
warnings and two minor boating
accidents.
Islamorada Fire Rescue
reported 13 medical-related con-
tacts and three transports from
the Holiday Isle area during the
event.


FEMA,- which administers the
National Flood Insurance
Program, was violating the
Endangered Species Act.
Because financial institutions
require flood insurance before
lending, the injunction left some
landowners with permits in hand
but no money to build with.
According to the county's
permitting process, property
owners have 60 days to pick up
their building permits upon being
notified they've been granted
one. If they aren't picked up
within that 60 days, they are no
longer valid.
On Nov. 16, 2005, the com-
mission voted to suspend that 60-
day limit for permit holders for a
maximum of 180 days or until
the injunction is stayed or lifted,
whichever came first.
The County Commission's
action last week suspends the 60
days again, but this time until the
injunction is lifted or the proper-
ty is taken off a list of affected
land; there is no 180-day expira-
tion period.
The waiver is retroactive to
May 15, 2006, when the first one
expired.
After the injunction was
imposed, Fish & Wildlife came
up with a list of 49,000 Keys
properties that potentially con-
tain habitat for endangered
species. Since then, more than
500 parcels have been removed
from the list after their owners
proved the properties do not con-
tain sensitive habitat.
The initial lawsuit was filed
on behalf of the Key deer, Key
Largo cotton mouse and other
endangered species.

Few rooms at the inn for holiday weekend


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Thousands of people are
expected to show up for
Memorial Day weekend and
that's just at the Sandbar, the
boating hotspot off Islamorada.
Memorial Day weekend, one
of the busiest holiday seasons on
the Florida Keys calendar,
arrives Friday.
Casual travelers without
reservations cannot count on
finding resort rooms, local
chamber-of-commerce staff cau-
tioned.
"Our hotels are very close to
being filled," Bonnie Hall, inter-
im executive director at the
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce, said Tuesday.
"For Memorial Day, people
call three months ahead," Carole
Hayes said from the Islamorada
Chamber of Commerce. "It

A choice between a Founders
Park community center for
Islamorada residents or new
bathrooms for tenants at the park
marina seems to await Village
Council members.
The council meets in regular'
session at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at
the Islamorada Fire Station, mile
marker 81.8.
Islamorada staff and the Parks
and Recreation Advisory
Committee have forwarded
plans for two structures slated for
Founders Park: a community
center and a bath pavilion for the
village-owned Plantation Yacht
Harbor marina.
But with combined costs of
the structures possibly exceeding
$2 million, Village Manager
Gary Word wrote to council
members he "cannot recommend
proceeding with both projects at
this time."
Existing bathroom facilities at
the marina need to be replaced
because of damage from
Hurricane Wilma flooding. A


there are some cancellations."
Many Floridians pack up
their families to celebrate the
start of summer with a long
weekend in the Keys, Hall said.
"The weather's good and they
want to get on the water," she
said. "It's also one of the first
weekends that [room] rates go
down. People are very aware of
that."
Local law enforcement plans
to watch local roads and water-
ways, particularly the Whale
Harbor area off Islamorada.
Capt. Joe Leiter of the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
has estimated up to 2,000 boats
may drop anchor near the
Sandbar shallows on a single day
over this holiday weekend.
"The weather turned nice and
it turned into a zoo out there,"
Leiter said of last year's crowd.
Patrol boats make numerous
safety stops in the area.
"We will be concentrating our


proposal for a temporary bath-
room trailer unit was shelved in
favor of building a permanent
replacement.
A 1,960-square-foot bathroom
pavilion is estimated to cost from
$687,960 to $802,620, according
to designers and staff.
A community center, envi-
sioned as a meeting space and
activity center for groups and
park programs, could cost from
$1.14 million to $1.4 million at
the planned 3,400-square-foot
size.
Park impact fees and infra-
structure sales-tax revenue would
cover much of the cost of either
unit, while dedicated proceeds
from the marina could help build
the bathrooms, staff noted.
In other items Thursday,
Islamorada Village Council
members consider a number of
land-development issues, includ-
ing plans for the Islamorada Boat
Center property. Owners and the
village have been trying to
resolve a code-enforcement case
dating to 1999 so renovations can
be made.

On Memorial Day 2006, a 6-

West was struck and killed by a

The Palace Gardens Difference

For nearly 25 years, The Palace Gardens Assisted Living Community in Homestead has been known
as a leader in providing outstanding care to seniors. While our grounds and the campus are beautiful,
there are more than a few reasons why The Palace Gardens is different from all others.

1. Continuum of Care -
The Palace Gardens is part of The Palace
Family of Senior Living Communities which
offers accommodations that meet everyone's
needs, from Independent Living and-Assisted
Living, to Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation,
and even Home Health. You can rest assured
that at The Palace, your needs will be met, no
matter what may happen in the future.

2. Palace Training &
Education Center
Because our residents come first, every
employee must reflect the higher standards
of our .,1m' nh,,iru ircv. Based on Ritz-Carlton
., procedures, a comprehensive orientation
: ~ program reinforces this focus. Regular training
and educational programs continue so that
S . "residents will always receive the very best
. .. . care and services.

3. Local Ownership-
Founded in 1980 by Helen and Jacob
Shaham, The Palace is privately owned and
locally operated by these self-made individuals
who foresaw the need for quality senior
living environments. Their constant
,involvement today ensures the tradition they
established for the communities and services
-bearing The Palace name: only the best.

Boat-barn looks reviewed again


Planning panel
revisits them
at meeting today
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Property values have gone up
and waterfront access is shrink-
ing. As a result, many waterfront
property owners are looking to
boat barns as a means to maxi-
mize their property's potential.
The Monroe County Planning


Commission is slated to take
another look at a set of guide-
lines aimed at easing the poten-
tial impact the humongous stor-
age structures might have on the
surrounding homes and busi-
nesses.
The commission convenes
today at 10 a.m. at the Key Largo
library.
Commissioners have been
tweaking the guidelines their
past several meetings. Today,
they will review the newest revi-


sions. Once they are adopted,
county planners would use them
while working toward permitting
new and redeveloped properties.
Among the proposed guide-.
lines:
Including "view corridors"
that would allow visual access of
the water from public rights of
way.
A pleasing aesthetic from
the vantage point of the water as
well. -
+ Minimal, well-screened

Cameras OK'd for Duck Key


New walkways
and bike path
also approved
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Pedestrians and cyclists on
Duck Key will soon be safer due
to a move by the Monroe County
Commission during its regular
meeting last week in Key Largo.
The commission approved the
concept of creating a bike and
foot path alongside the two
"humpback" bridges on the
Middle Keys island.
The bridges have blind spots
that Tom Neville, chairman of
the Duck Key Security District
Advisory Board, said are acci-
dents waiting to happen.
Neville said the bridges have
always been a little iffy, but rapid
growth on the island has brought
more traffic and with it more
potential for disaster.
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro sponsored the resolu-
tion after the Security District
board polled Duck Key resi-
dents, finding that 70 percent of
those polled are in favor of the
pedestrian bridges.
"I've encountered the prob-
lem myself," Di Gennaro told
the Keynoter. "You come over
that hump and people are right
on the other side. It's a real dan-
ger."
"The improvements will be
paid for by transportation impact
fees for that district," County
Engineer David Koppel said.
"All of those funds are avail-
able."
A similar bridge in Key Largo


was built in 2004 for just under
$100,000.
The commission also unani-
mously approved installing secu-
rity cameras at the entrance to
Duck Key.
According to Neville, growth
on the island has also brought
with it increases in speeders and
incidents of vandalism.'
Another poll of the residents
also showed 70 percent are in


favor of the cameras.
The estimated $. 35,000
expense will be paid from money
collected by the Security
District. Homeowners pay $200
annually; owners of vacant lots
pay $50 a year. The fee, which
shows up on property owners'
regular tax bill, has been used for
years to bolster security with the
hiring of a private security guard.
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office has agreed to help with
the camera project.

Overall design should
"enhance community character

A building's "scale and
massing can create monolithic
structures that are visually
degrading [to] the community."
The guide suggests varying the
buildings' height, width and vol-
ume, limiting width to 250 feet,

goal is to avoid "monolithic,

Action comes
following arrest
after fight
Associated Press

The commanding officer of
a Boston-based cutter was
temporarily reassigned Thurs-
day after he was arrested for
allegedly starting a fight with
a bartender in Key West.
Cmdr. Michael S. Sabellico,
42, was temporarily reassigned
from commanding officer of
the 270-foot cutter Escanaba
to the U.S. Coast Guard First
District staff in Boston while
an administrative investigation
is conducted, the Coast Guard
said in a statement Thursday.
Sabellico was arrested on a
misdemeanor charge of battery
at 1:15 a.m. May 15 after he
got into a scuffle with a bar-
tender at Irish Kevin's, a bar
and restaurant on Duval Street.
According to a police
report, the bar manager asked
Sabellico and some of his
crewmates to leave an alley-
way near the bar several times,
saying they were trespassing.

Island annexation

gets tabled again


TDC program gets award


It's 2nd time
within a month
it's so honored
The Monroe County Tourist
Development Council has gar-
nered a second award for it
proactive tourism hurricane
safety program.
The TDC and its media rela-
tions director, Andy Newman,
received a Public Education/
Information Award at the 2007
Florida Governor's Hurricane
Conference May 16 in Fort
Lauderdale.
The honor by statewide offi-
cials comes on the. heels of a
public-awareness award present-
ed to the TDC in April at the
National Hurricane Conference
in New Orleans.
The hurricane safety pro-
gram, which is executed in con-
cert with Monroe County
Emergency Management, was
developed in spring 1998 and
features a multi-pronged com-
munications plan designed to
reach Keys visitors with infor-
mation of any impending evacu-
ations.


Former National Hurricane Center Director Max Mayfield (left)
and current Director Bill Proenza (second from left) present the
award to Andy Newman with Irene Toner looking on.


In 2005, the program was
expanded to include a highly
visible public information pro-
gram to provide travelers with
factual information on hurri-
canes and safety plans before
they come to the Keys.
"The relationship that has
been developed between the
Keys tourism industry and
Emergency Management serves


as a model for other destinations
in hurricane-prone areas,"
Emergency Management
Director Irene Toner said.
Newman credits the coopera-
tive posture of the tourism
industry as well as county,
municipal, National Weather
Service and National Hurricane
Center officials with the success
of the program.

The Key West City Com-
mission again tabled second
reading of an ordinance to annex
Wisteria Island in Key West
Harbor when it met in special
session Monday.
So the ordinance will appear
on the agenda for the next regu-
larly scheduled commission
meeting, June 5.
The island, better known as
Christmas Tree Island, has the
capacity to hold 168 dwelling
units, according to a report from
city Planning Director Gail
Kenson. It is owned by the
Bernstein family, represented by
FEB Corp. Developer Ocean
Properties Limited is working
with FEB Corp.
Ocean Properties owns the
Westin Key West Resort and
Marina, Sunset Key Guest Lodges,
Sheraton Suites, Travelodge, The
Weather Station, Banana Bay
Resort and other resorts.
Ocean Properties Vice
President Tom McMurrian says
that if the annexation occurs, the
company will move to create
something comparable to it


neighbor, Sunset Key. Sunset
Key is home to numerous multi-
million-dollar homes.
City Commissioner Harry
Bethel said he wouldn't mind
seeing that happen.
Bethel said he worked to
ensure development of that island
did not obstruct sunsets for visi-
tors and locals large buildings
like hotels would have created
that problem.
Naja Girard d'Albissin has
been active in fighting against the
annexation. She was one of many
residents who spoke out against
the ordinance.
According to d'Albissin, the
city will not gain the property tax
revenue it hopes for by develop-
ing the island. She is meeting
Thursday with representatives of
the environmental group Last
Stand to "join forces."
"We are concerned that they
haven't made a study of their
own," she said of the city.
Ocean Properties and FEB
Corp. maintain they cannot begin
the planning stages of develop-
ment with the city until the
annexation is official.

Warner closing doors


Real estate

After almost 40 years in busi-
ness in the Upper Keys, Warner
Real Estate has closed its doors to
future business and by June 1, co-
owner Sharon Warner said, the
company will have tied up loose
ends.


"It's just our time to choose a
different road in life," Sharon
said of herself and husband,
Ramond "Skip" Warner Jr., own-
ers of Warner Real Estate.
The Warners bought a guest-
house in Eleuthera in the
Bahamas about four years ago
and are renting it out as a vaca-
tion getaway. They are planning
to move there very soon, she said.
Sharon also said this move is
an opportunity for retirement, and
they are already building a retire-


ment home nearby.
They will continue to travel
between the Upper Keys and the
Bahamas, she said.
As for the business, Sharon
said, no one is buying the name
or the company. She said the
office and possibly the phone
number might be rented out to an
agent currently in the office, but
Warner Real Estate is "for all
intents and purposes, closing
down."

nobody's taking Warner Real
Estate over is because it's our
name," Sharon said. "We didn't
want to sell our name."
Warner Real Estate was start-
ed in Hollywood, Fla., in the
1960s by Ramond Warner Sr.
He opened the office in Key
Largo in 1968 after buying a
house on the water,-and moved
the business south.
Wamer's son Skip received
his real estate license in the '70
and worked with his father until
moving to New Hampshire,
where he met Sharon.


Sharon said they moved to
the Upper Keys in the mid-'90s
and bought and took over the
office about 1996. She received
her real estate license in 1995.
"If anybody told me when I
moved down here that. I was
going to do real estate, I would
have said 'Yeah, you're crazy,'"
Sharon said.
The business, she said, has
been involved in many aspects
of real estate including residen-
tial and commercial sales as
well as rentals.
"Skip and I took it over, basi-
cally built it up and now we're
just ready to move on."

Thinking second home?


Realtors say

some investors
McClatchy Tribune

If you were thinking about
investing in the vacation home
market, it appears you have
missed the boat;,so to speak.
The National Association of
Realtors reports that vacation
home sales rose 4.7 percent to a
record 1.07 million in 2006,
from 1.02 million in 2005. But
the association also reports that


sales of investment homes fell
sharply, down 28.9 percent to
1.65 million in 2006, from a
record 2.32 million in 2005.
The big drop in investment
sales cut second homes' share of
the resale market to 36 percent in
2006, down from 40 percent in
2005. By contrast, primary resi-
dence sales fell 4.1 percent to
4.82 million in 2006, from 5.02
million in 2005.
"We expected the drop in
investment sales because specu-
lators left the market in 2006,
which caused investment sales to

fall much faster than the primary
market," said David Lereah,
NAR's chief economist. "But the
rise in vacation home sales is
based on strong demographic
and lifestyle factors, with only
modest interest in renting their
properties to others."
In 2006, the typical vacation
homebuyer was 44, had a medi-
an household income of
$102,200, and purchased proper-
ty that was a median of 215
miles from his or her primary
residence.
The median age of the vaca-
tion homebuyer declined last
year, from 52 in the 2005 sec-
ond-home-buyer survey. Lereah
said he anticipated the decline
because there are now 44.7 mil-
lion people in their 40s, and this
larger age group will be driving
the market in the coming decade.
One-quarter of vacation
homes were purchased in the
Northeastern United States, 13
percent in the Midwest, 38 per-
cent in the South, and 25 percent
in the West.
SPart of the drop in the median
investment price results from
investors shifting away from
pricier markets like Florida,
Nevada and Arizona, and into.
affordable locations such as New
Mexico, Idaho, Utah, 'Georgia,
Tennessee, and the Carolinas.

Celebrating AIDS survival

Experts push
testing for
early detection .
By ALYSON CREAN --
acrean@keynoter.com .


The 24th annual International
AIDS Candlelight Memorial in
Key West Sunday was as much a
celebration of life as a remem-
brance of those who have suc-
cumbed to the disease.
Prior to a somber lighting of
candles, the Key West Comparsa
Dancers and local gospel singers
Jackie Williams, "Little"
Jacqueline Williams, Robin
Williams-Phifer and Diamond
"Lyric" Williams filled Key
West's Bayview Park with cele-
bration.
Despite the celebration and
the fact the disease is now con-
sidered a chronic one rather than
an immediate killer there are
some somber trends, according
to Cyna Underhill, HIV/AIDS
program coordinator with the
Florida Department of Health.
"I'm noticing a slip in the
number of people getting tested,"
she said. "And a quarter of our
cases have not even been diag-
nosed."
Underhill says routine testing
in physicians' offices and emer-
gency rooms would make a big
difference in the life expectancy
of people faced with the disease.
Early diagnosis, she says, is
vital. Early detection can add lit-
erally decades to the lifespan of
HIV/AIDS patients.
"The new treatments are con-
siderably lighter on the body,"
Underhill said. "We now have a
treatment that is one or two pills.
a day. It's more effective with
less medicine."
Bob Bowers, the keynote
speaker Sunday, has been living
with AIDS for 23 years. He
founded HIVICTORIOUS and
has dedicated himself to motivat-
ing people living with
HIV/AIDS make the most of the
challenge.
Tattooed and muscular,
Bowers is the antithesis of the
image of a man living with
AIDS.
"I am committed to living life
as courageously as possible," he
said.

Proenza speaks out


New director
of storm center
is true to self
Associated Press

Bill Proenza's new title may be
director of the National'Hurricane
Center, but the job comes with an
unofficial role, too celebrity
meteorologist. Since starting the
job in January, Proenza has shown
he is not content just to have his
picture taken or read forecasts on
TV. Instead, he has been. outspo-
ken about budget shortfalls in the
government's weather forecasting
programs and warned of a crucial
aging satellite. He plans to keep
up the frank talk.
"I have to say that I have been
to some senior executive retreats
where they have said that if we
feel we've got an important mes-
sage concerning our responsibili-
ties, that [the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration]
doesn't want to come across like it
is muzzling us," he said.
NOAA has been in the uncom-
fortable position of defending
itself from public attacks from one
of its highest-profile workers.
Proenza has called for hun-
dreds of millions of dollars in new
.funding for expanded storm

research and predictions. He said
NOAA is spending up to $4 mil-
lion on a "low priority" publicity
campaign that could be used to
plug research budget shortfalls.
He has pointed to the weather
satellite that is beyond its years
and cautioned that the accuracy of
hurricane forecasts could suffer if
it fails.
Proenza's outreach-heavy job
requires him to be in the intera-
tional spotlight .during the six-
month Atlantic hurricane season
that starts in June. When hurri-
canes threaten, Proenza will spend
hours talking to the public and the
media.
Proenza's predecessor,. Max
Mayfield, became a household


name and face over the past few
years of destructive seasons,
patiently guiding Florida and the
Southeast through repeated
storms in his soothing Oklahoma
accent.
Proenza, 62, was born in New
York but his family moved to the
Miami area when he was 9. He
later graduated from Florida State
University with a meteorology
degree. While at college, he spent
summers working for the hurri-
cane center.
Proenza will be in Marathon
May 30 for two hurricane confer-
ences, one staged by the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West, the other by the

Service-Key West and Monroe
County.

Nesting turtles need help


Now's the time
to be aware of
moms laying eggs
While summer is a season
of rest and relaxation for many
humans, sea turtles begin a
busy season of nesting activi-
ty.
The nesting season in the
Keys runs from April 15 to
Oct. 31 each year, when
female turtles come ashore
between dusk and dawn to lay
about 100 eggs the sizes of
ping-pong balls. Roughly two
months later, hatchlings dig
their way to the surface and
scramble into the sea, com-


pleting the cycle.
Sea turtles have been per-
forming these rituals for about
200 million years, but now all
are threatened with extinction
because of human actions.
Entanglement in fishing
gear; impacts from boats,
demand for meat, eggs and
shells; and development of
-coastal areas have all taken
their toll on these federally
protected species.
To help these creatures sur-
vive, many coastal areas,
including Monroe County,
have passed sea-turtle protec-
tion ordinances.

can help sea turtles during the
nesting season:
If you see a turtle on the
beach, be quiet and still. Noise
and activity may cause her to
abort her nesting attempt or
cover her nest too quickly,
resulting in lower hatchling
survival rates. Never handle a
nesting turtle.
+ Don't walk the nesting
beach with a flashlight and
never shine a light in a turtle's
eyes. Never use a flash to pho-
tograph turtles.
Lights on the beach will
cause a female to abort a nest-
ing attempt and can cause tur-
tles to crawl away from the
ocean, often to their deaths.
Check the lights in and around
your house.
-If they're shedding light
onto the beach, they should be
turned off, shielded or
changed to low-wattage yel-
low bug bulbs during the nest-
ing season. Draperies should
be closed if interior lights are
a problem.
Clear your nesting beach at
night. Remove anything such
as lawn chairs or boats, which
could cover a potential nest
site, or be an obstacle to
hatchlings trying to reach the
water.
Don't allow your pets to
roam. They may discourage a
female from nesting, dig up a
nest or eat her hatchlings.
+ If you find it necessary
to rake your beach, hand rak-
ing is encouraged. If the beach
must be cleaned mechanically,
a permit from the Florida.
Department of Environmental
Protection is required.
If you find turtle tracks
on your beach, don't disturb
them. Volunteers walk many
of our nesting beaches and
tracks provide important
information about nests and

Scientists favor no-fishing zones


Parrotfish
in Bahamas
are looked at
Associated Press

Governments can help save
threatened coral reefs by pro-
hibiting fishing nearby, giving
species of fish beneficial to
coral colonies a chance to flour-
ish, scientists in San Juan,
Puerto Rico, said Saturday.
The Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary contains no-
fishing zones to increase fish
populations.
Parrotfish eat the seaweed
and algae that crowd out young
colonies of coral, helping
replenish reefs damaged by
storms, bleaching or climate
change, according to marine

scientists at the Exuma Cays
Land and Sea Park, a 176-
square-mile reserve southeast of
Nassau.
They said young coral
colonies flourish in areas where
parrotfish are protected.
"Parrotfish seem to be a real-
ly important part of the recovery
and the health of these reefs,"
said Daniel Brumbaugh, chief
coordinator for the research
team dubbed the Bahamas
Biocomplexity Project.
The multicolored fish with a
beak-like mouth have been the
primary grazers on Caribbean
reefs since disease wiped out
most long-spine sea urchins in
the early 1980s, Brumbaugh
said.


Lead scientist Peter Mumby
of the University of Exeter said
the team's findings were the
first evidence that coral a
shelter built up by millions of
tiny animals can be helped to
recover where parrotfish are
protected and swim in great
numbers.
Mumby said parrotfish num-
bers can be maintained at high
levels through marine reserves,
where fishing is banned, or
through "national fisheries leg-
islation that protects parrotfish."
Coral reefs around the world
are being destroyed by commer-
cial fishing, development, and
warming waters from climate
change, prompting scientists to
warn that up to half of these
marine ecosystems could disap-
pear by 2045.

This year, it
takes place
at Bayview Park

For decades, Keys cooks
have flavored their .dishes
with tropical fruits such as
mango, papaya and Key lime
gleaned from trees that grow
along the island chain.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. June
30, these tropical fruits and
many others are to be cele-.
brated at the annual Florida
Keys Tropical Fruit Fiesta.
The family-friendly festi-
val is to take place at Key
West's Bayview Park at
Truman Avenue and
Eisenhower Drive, with a
focus on fun and sharing
"fruitful" knowledge. The
event is produced by the
University of Florida's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences with the
Monroe County Cooperative
Extension Service.
Those attending can choose
from hundreds of quality con-
tainer-grown fruit trees for
sale, compete for prizes in a
popular homegrown-fruit con-
test, attend a fast-paced fruit
auction and solve plant prob-
lems at a bilingual clinic.
Those eager to learn more
about planting and growing
tropical fruit trees can gain
insights from lectures by hor-
ticultural experts from
Miami's Fairchild Tropical
Botanical Garden and the
University of Florida.
SAdmission to all scheduled
events is free.
For more information, call
292-4501 or send an e-mail to

vacancy

remains

Parmer decides
against leading
volleyball team
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

One of Peter Fraga's first
duties as the new athletic
director at Key West High
School likely will be naming a
new volleyballcoach.
Julia Parmer, a physical
education teacher at the high
school who was named in
December to succeed Rick
Ridenour, has changed her
mind. Parmer coached the
Conchs volleyball team five
years ago.
There have been five out-
of-town applicants, but none
of them is likely to be hired,
outgoing athletic director
Judd Wise said.
"They think it's full-time
coaching, with no teaching,"
Wise said. "So it would be a
waste of time interviewing
them."
Ridenour, who coached the
team the past three seasons
and brought new interest to a
stale program, said Monday
that he would consider return-

before suiting up to play the
final quarter.
Stacked up against Key
West's threadbare roster of 24, it
seemed like a sure mismatch.
But although the Conchs lost,
20-0, in the annual game that


concludes spring practice, none
of the two dozen in red jerseys
backed down.
"The best part for us," coach
Robert James said, "is that we
weren't manhandled against a
6A school. If we had been men-
tally tougher, it would have been
a much better game:"


The Conchs, who played
without a few key players who
were out for various reasons,
including low grades, had their
moments in the late-afternoon
sun during a game that proceed-
ed with the teams alternating

Grand Prix brings the speed


Miss Geico
tops out at
nearly 160 mph
Piloting a 3,800 horsepower
turbine-powered catamaran,
powerboat racers Marc Granet
and Scott Begovich posted the
fastest average speed of the
fleet Sunday at the Marathon
Super Boat Grand Prix.
Granet of St. Petersburg
Beach and Begovich of Jupiter
averaged a blistering 103.61
mph around the 11-lap, 61-
total-mile course that routed
under both the modern and his-
toric Seven Mile bridges. Their
speeds for team Miss Geico on
the short straightaway
approached 160 mph, Granet


said.
"It will definitely get your
heart pumping," Granet said of
driving between the supports
that hold up roadbed on both
bridges. "There's always anxi-
ety and as you go through,
you're always checking and
double-checking yourself."
Miccosukee Indian Gaming,
with Brett Lee Furshman of
Coral Springs and Wyatt
Fountain of Washington, N.C.,
won the Super Vee class.
Furshman trailed Yacht's
Fountain, owned by Michel
Karsenti of Fort Lauderdale,
throughout most of the race,
then took the lead after
Karsenti's boat broke down
with a faulty ignition switch.


"They stayed about five sec-
onds ahead of us, but I was
hoping that they would make a
mistake," Furshman said.
Predator, with Dennis De
La Torre of Key Largo, Tommy
Hoffstetter of Fort Lauderdale
Gabriel Pacheco of Tavemier
won the Manufacturer
Production II class.
J.P. Motorsports, owned by
Pat Mumper of North Port,
Fla., garnered top honors in the
Manufacturer Production IV
class.
Rum Runners, owned by
Bobbie Kieber of Big Pine
Key, won the Production V
class.

FOOTBALL / From 40

possessions from their own 25-
yard line.
South Dade drove down the
field on its first possession, only
to be stopped by the Conchs on
the 1-yard line. But Phillip
Jones, the first of three Key
West quarterbacks, fumbled to
give the ball back, again on the
1.
. The Buccaneers immediately
scored a touchdown and passed
for the two-point conversion to
take an 8-0 lead with 5:30 left in
the first quarter.
On Jones' next series, he
completed an 11-yard pass to
Alfred Rahming for a first
down, but a sack took away any
further momentum.
Jones, who will be a junior in
the fall, faced pressure that can't


be duplicated in practice. "He
did all right," James said. "It
was a valuable experience."
Senior-to-be Michael
SGallagher took over at quarter-
back for.the Conchs' third pos-
sessibn: His runs sparked a long
drive that set up a first-and-goal
on the South Dade 5. But a
fourth-down lateral went awry
and the Buccaneers recovered
the fumble in the end zone.
"He did well in spots, but he
made a bad decision on the goal
line,". James said of Gallagher,
who is playing quarterback for
the first time.
Phillip Young, still a fresh-
man, was next to take over at
quarterback. He completed
passes to Kevin Nash, Jaxon
Coleman and Ethan McKenzie,
but was also sacked and threw
an interception.
"He was probably the best

ing as coach "if they want
me."
Wise said the decision
probably will be up to Fraga,
who takes over July 1.
"My hardest hire of all has
been volleyball," Wise said.
"Rick Ridenour stepped up
three years ago and volun-
teered to be the coach."
Ridenour, 52, who also is a
math teacher and assistant
track coach, resigned as the
volleyball coach in December,
not long after the team fin-


ished 2-18. He said then that
coaching two teams and teach-
ing had become too much of a
load.
Whoever takes over will
inherit what Ridenour said is
"a lot of talent" coming up
from the JV team. But the
Conchs will have to find a
way to offset the loss of
Karolina Nowak, the team's
best player last season, and
kills leader Lauren Arias, both
of whom will graduate.
Volleyball is the only Key
West High sport that doesn't
have a coach in place for the
next school year.


one of the three," James said.
Late in the first half, South
Dade increased its lead to 14-0
on a 37-yard touchdown pass.
The Buccaneers also scored the
only touchdown in an unremark-
able second half.
James was impressed with
Cole Harrison, who made sever-
al tackles from his linebacker
position. Two linemen up from
the JV team, Chris Harris and
Denzel Eleby, also stood out.
The Conchs will have to wait
until Aug. 24 to play another
game the season opener with
Boyd Anderson and by then
James hopes to have a. 40-man
team.
"We'll be in the weight room
today," James said Monday.
"The guys are fired up now that
they .realize they're better than
they thought they were. We'll
see if it pays off."

Teams from the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative and Wire Nuts
meet for the championship of the first season of men's flag
football at Founders Park in Islamorada. The utility won, 42-26.


Co-op triumphs


over Wire Nuts


Utility team
claims title
in flag football
A second-half surge gave the
Florida Keys Electric Cooperative
men's squad the first flag-football
championship in the Founders
Park league in Islamorada.
The co-op squad scored 28
points in the second half to pull
away from Wire Nuts, 42-26, in
the title game of the eight-team
league.
The final was played over two
days, since rain halted the May 14
game at halftime, with the Co-op
up, 14-6. Play resumed two days
later, and the co-op bunch went on
its 28-point spree.


It was no surprise since the
utility led from the start of the
seven-game regular season and
held the top seed in the single-
elimination playoff.
Wire Nuts made up ground in
the playoffs, moving from a sev-
enth seed to the championship
game.
Other teams in the first season
included Froggy's Fitness,
Plantation Boat Mart, Bentley's,
David Massey Land Surveying,
Community Bank, and Keys
Business Solutions.
A new league will form in
August. Players or teams interest-
ed should call Mike Onsgard of

Coconuts draws 536


Miami's Perozo
gets $10,000
for 47.8-pounder
If you are waiting for a big-
ger dolphin tournament than
the Coconuts to test your skill
level against the best of the
Keys, then keep waiting. A
bigger dolphin tournament
does not exist.
If you disagree, there are
536 others who have my back
on this one.
The 21st annual Coconuts
Dolphin Tournament has
come, and in a two-day blink
of an eye, is gone. Just like the
day after a weekend-long wed-
ding, the following Monday is
full of dread longing to capture
the feeling of the .weekend's
event for just a little while
longer.
Tournament organizer and
owner of Coconuts Restaurant
in Key Largo Charles
Mountain is proud the
Coconuts tournament remains
the largest dolphin tournament
in the Keys.
"With the amount of new
tournaments popping up
almost .weekly, I'm happy that
we can maintain the level of
interest to continue to attract
well over 500 anglers," he
said.
The winds picked up in time
for the weekend and as most
dolphin fishermen will remind
you, dolphin fishing picks up
when winds are out of the east
or south or any combination of
the two.
Well, Sunday was east but
unfortunately a little out of the
north side of east, which
means larger seas conditions
and. possibly lockjaw on the
mahi side.
Day 1 fishing in this two-
day event proved fair for most
anglers. The word was that
there was a lot of schoolie (3
to 5 pounds) fish but not many
gaffers or slammers to be
found (it can become dizzying
to keep up with all of the slang
fisherman have when referring
to different sized mahi-mahi
- micro-minis, minis,
schoolies, teenagers, bailers,
gaffers, heavy lifters and slam-
mers just to name a few). The
slammers that were found were

Day 1
leader was
John
Cal Sutphin Furey on
the boat
Dumb Irish Luck, out of Boca
Raton, who weighed in a 44-
pound bull dolphin.
By Day 2 on Sunday, some-
one cranked the fans to high
offshore, as it started to blow.
According to the Molasses
Reef weather station Sunday,
winds were sustained at 22 to
24 knots (roughly 28 mph) out
of the east/northeast. Coincide
that with an eastbound Gulf


Stream current and the seas
became noticeably nastier.
The fish of the tournament
was caught mid-day by angler
Carlos Peroza fishing from
Miami. After pitching a cut
bait ballyhoo to a large bull
and not getting him to eat,
Peroza grabbed a flying fish
and tried again before finally
getting the dolphin to eat.
When the proverbial dust
settled and the team made its
their way to the weigh-in, the
tournament was theirs as
well as the $10,000 check
compliments of their 47.8-
pound dolphin.
The Day 1 leader's fish of
44 pounds held for second
place, with third going to
Tommy Zeschke of Coral
Springs, fishing on the
Geronimo and weighing in a
42.0-pound fish.

The worm run should make the tarpon loopy


Once-a-year
spawn boosts
tarpon angling

The worm run may be com-
ing.
That's right, the annual
worm run along the bayside of
the Keys bridges may be hap-
pening as you read this. If so,
you will know by all of the
excitement of tarpon anglers as
well as a rush to the tackle
store to get the worm iinita-
tions with which to fish.
So,'you are asking yourself,
Just what the bleep is he talk-
ing-about?
Well, I can tell you all about
it but it would take more room
than most of this paper to cover
it. What I can tell you is that it
is an annual spawn of a worm
called the palolo. They live in
sponges that are all over the
bay and release from them
once a year to spawn.
The key is that no one, not
even the so-called experts, can
tell you exactly when and
where they will release from
the sponges. What we do know
is they almost always do it fol-
lowing a full moon around late
May or June, which is right
now. They release on a strong
outgoing tide toward the ocean,
usually in the afternoon.
They are usually no more
than an inch to an inch and a
half long, and have an orange
body with a greenish head.
When they release, they float
to the surface of the water and
wiggle like mad on their trip
out to the ocean (no big deal so
far, right?).
Well the reason tarpon
anglers are so interested in


When they
SIdo this is
because it
causes one
of the
wildest
natural
phenome-
nons we
have in the
Keys.
The
thing about
these
Dave Navarro worms is
everything
eats them. When I say everey-
thing, I mean everything.
I have had some I put in my
bait well, and the live shrimp
were beating each other up to
get to them; pinfish were doing
the same; as were the crabs.
I have seen barracuda,
sharks, snapper, bonefish, per-
mit, grunts, cowfish, needle-
fish, ballyhoo, pilchards and of
course tarpon slurping down as
many as they could find. What
it apparently does to the fish is,
take you choice of terms, gets
them stoned or drunk. I mean
really stupid.
I've experienced on more
than one occasion tarpon
swimming right into the side of
the boat. I have seen species
that normally chase each other
instead swim side by side
slurping worms without much
care in the world.
What it does is bring all of
these fish to the surface where
the worms are swimming. You
will see literally thousands of
fish, mostly tarpon due to their
size, casually swimming on the
surface feeding on them. It's a
great opportunity to sight cast
to these fish.
They will eat a bait but if


The Yamaha is next


SUTPHIN / From 44

Marathon local Helen Kyle
fishing with Capt. Bob
Kidwell on the Compromise,
securing the Female Division
with her 28.4-pound fish; and
junior-angler winner Sam
Williams from Alva, Fla., who
.caught a 22.8-pound mahi
fishing on the Triple Trouble.
Again, 536 anglers braved
the iffy weather and managed


some very nice fish.
Altogether, $30,000 in cash
and $20,000 in prizes were -
available for competitors.
For those wanting to keep
the dolphin thrill ride alive can
do so in Key West starting
Friday night with the Yamaha
Dolphin Masters Invitational,
with a $15,000 first-place car-
rot dangling for any to grab.

you happen to have a worm fly,
which imitates the worm, your
chances of a hookup are great-
ly increased. Over the years,
we have developed a classic
worm fly that depicts the
swimming action as well as the
coloration of the palolo worm.
This can be used as a fly on a
fly rod or, with the addition of
a split shot up on the leader,
can also be used on spinning
tackle-easily.
Over the years, I have had
great luck just slow trolling
these worm flies around the
area and hooking numerous
fish. Drifting and blind casting
have also done wonders.
The fish are so plentiful dur-
ing the run that you don't have
to be too accurate to hook up
on one. Then the fun really
begins.
Like I said, these fish act
like they are toasted. You may
have a tarpon do one of their
patented gallant jumps and
right in the middle of the air, it
seems like they forgot what
they were doing and just stop
moving. They hit the water
with all of the grace of a fat
man doing a belly flop.
You wind up the line as you
back the boat toward the still
fish on the surface of the water,
thinking that he just died or
something. Just before you get
there, he remembers what he
was doing and off he goes


again for another run and jump.
It's wild!
As I mentioned earlier, not
even the experts know exactly
when and where the hatch will
occur. But it usually happens at
all of the area channels at the
same time the same day. Most
of the time, only a small sec-
tion of a bridge will have the
hatch going on, although it is
not uncommon for several
channels to have something
happening the same day.
The only way to be sure to
hit it is to be there every after-
noon when the conditions are
right. The advantage of that is
this is some of the best tarpon
fishing, anyway, so you are not
wasting your time if you don't
hit a night without a hatch. But


*0 i


brother, if you hit it, you will
remember the show for a life-
time.
One quick reminder that this
week's free fishing seminar
will be our. last of the season.
After this Thursday evening's
event, we will be on hiatus
until October.
Thursday we will cover, a
spectrum of topics for summer-
time fishing and some of the
fun we have had over the sea-
son. It begins at 6:30 p.m. at
our Marine Educational Center
at mile marker 50 bayside and,
as always, is free.
