Access to waters of
Everglades National Park that lap
against Upper Keys shores likely
will emerge as a main point of


debate at local meetings this
week.
"Nothing is set in stone but
some of what has been proposed
has the real potential to substan-

way of life and our economy,"
said Jim Trice, an Islamorada
angler and chairman of
Islamorada's nearshore advisory


committee.

Everglades regulations in 30
years come to the Keys Thursday

Two men accused of alliga-
tor poaching pleaded guilty
Tuesday in Key West, but sen-
tences won't be handed down
just yet.
The case involves Theo
Derleth, 19, of Marathon,
Timothy Goll, 19, of Marathon
and Jordan Milo, 20, of Big
Pine Key, as well one teen
whose ID is not disclosed
because he is a juvenile.
The four faced felony
charges stemming from. March
24, 2006, when they were
accused of luring.a protected
American alligator from the
Blue Hole with dead birds, shot
its eyes out with a pellet gun,
then bludgeoned it to death
with a baseball bat.
Authorities were alerted
when a Florida Fish and


Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission officer found two pho-
tos of the dead gator posted on
www.myspace.com.
Matthew Helmerich,
spokesman for the State
Attorney Mark Kohl's office,
says the maximum penalty for
alligator poaching is up to five
years in prison and/or fines up
to $1,000.
The juvenile male and
Derleth, one being the driver
and one being the look-out
man, were found to be less cul-
pable and were giving pretrial
intervention, a compliance pro-
gram ordered by the court that
usually involves probation and
community service.
"Part of it is that [Derleth] is
going to do some community
service in a local animal shel-
ter," Helmerich said.


As for Goll and Milo, "The
court has ordered a presentenc-
ing investigation," Helmerich
said. "The goal is to look at
aggravating and mitigating cir-
cumstances that would influ-
ence a sentencing decision."
He hopes senteficing will
occur in the next 60 days.
The case has sparked a host
of letter-writing campaigns,
blogs and general public outcry
and the court expects many
will turn out to be heard at the
sentencing.
"We assume a lot of conser-
vationists and animal advo-
cates will make statements at
that time," Helmerich said. "I
believe the court has pretty
wide discretion on that. It's
conceivable that [Judge Wayne
Miller] could hear everyone.
It's the judge's and the court's
decision, they have pretty
broad latitude on that."


Market starts to rebound

little difficult to identify over the
past year.
"Many segments of the mat-
ket operate independently from
each other and as such may
move in different directions," he
said. "Commercial property val-
ues seem to have increased over
the last one to two years, espe-
cially some waterfront areas."
Home values may be a differ-
ent story.
"Residential property values
are more difficult to identify," he
said, "but they seem to have
declined slightly during 2006
although that was evident in all
property types and it may not be
reflected in any individual annu-
al assessment change."
"Current prices are jumping a
little bit," said Vicki Gordon,
who owns Barefoot Appraisers
in Key West. "Overall though,
they're pretty much stable from
last year."
She noted that some proper-
ties may have been under-
appraised before this year.
"It is possible for the market
to decline slightly and have an
individual assessment increase
because the level of assessment
in that area or property type may
have been below the statutory
level," Borglum said.


Values still rising

Qne June 1 Monroe County Appraiser Ervin Higgs sent
out the estimated taxable property values to the various
taxing districts in the county. Each district will use these fig-
ures to prepare their budget for the coming year. Among
those values are the following cities and municipalities:

Key West had the largest
jump in values, going up by
close to $1 billion.
Key Colony Beach is the only
place where value went down,
from $896 million to $860 mil-
lion, a drop of $36 million.
Key Colony Mayor Clyde
Burnett was unsure why his
community was the only one to
drop, especially since, he said,
properties all over the Keys
seem to be selling for less than
comparable homes sold for in
2006.
However, any adjustment in


the market may not yet be
reflected in the current valuation
because the appraisals are based
upon last year's sales.
"Sales occurring in 2007 will
tell if the real estate market is
making any significant correc-
tion in Monroe," Borglum said.
"I am seeing the market
become more active," said
Gordon. "Over the past five
years we've gotten increases in
value of close to 30 percent a
year. Now there's a drop. In the
big picture, we're still ahead of
the curve."

'This is definitely a major deal'


EVERGLADES / Front 1I

Forsgren, executive director of
the Coastal Conservation
Association's Florida affiliate.
"People who have been fishing
the Everglades for years and
years cannot comprehend why
some of these alternatives have
even been proposed."
Four possible alternatives
were outlined by National Park
Service staff in information
released in early May.
Comments from workshops,
along with written comments col-
lected through July 31, will be
reviewed before park managers
draft a new version of a general
management plan for the
Everglades.
Boundaries of the Everglades
National Park encompass most of
Florida Bay, occasionally abut-
ting the Upper Keys, from Key
Largo through Long Key.
Three of the four proposed
alternatives recommend new reg-
ulations intended to reduce dam-
age to the shallows of Florida
Bay.
Such restrictions could limit
access of motorized boats, or
even ban them completely in
large areas.
"Under one of the plans, they
would not allow motorized boats
in waters less than 3 feet deep.
That's pretty much all of Florida
Bay where we fish," said
Islamorada guide John Gargan,
who specializes in trips to
Flamingo.
More than 300 South Florida
commercial guides hold permits
to fish in the Everglades. The vast
majority are from the Upper and
Middle Keys.
"This is definitely a major


deal," Gargan said.
Other proposals would limit
boat size to smaller than 24 feet,
or designate specific areas like
Cape Sable for extremely limited
access as a research zone. Others
alternatives are less restrictive, or
would not change anything.
Color-coded maps with the
alternatives "look specific, but at
this point they are purely concep-
tual," park spokeswoman Linda
Friar said. "It's all being worked
out through the public process."
Guides are willing to work
with park officials on conserva-
tion measures, but need things
like access-through marked chan-
nels to reach no-motor zones,
they said.
"Groups like the Florida Keys
Guides Association have led the
way in terms of marine conserva-
'tion," Forsgren said. "We're will-
ing to work with the parks on rea-
sonable measures that address
areas of concern."
Powerboaters are not the only
people who use Everglades
waters, said Monica Woll of the
Florida Bay Outfitters kayak
shop in Key Largo.
"It doesn't have to be either-
or, all powerboats or all kayaks,"
Woll said. "It's not unusual in a
national park for some areas to be
set aside for passive water recre-
ation."
Trice said, "It's critical that we
get as many Keys people as pos-
sible to attend these public work-
shops. We need to get input and
information to the park service as
they go about making these
changes."
Some local sportfishing
groups are working on "an alter-
native to the [park's] alternatives,
one that takes a little bit of one
and adds a lot to it to protect the

'Bridge-jumping' mom
charged with neglect

An 18-year-old mother from
Big Coppitt Key was arrested
Sunday for allegedly leaving her
15-month-old child alone to go
"bridge jumping."
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, Marina
Miles' grandmother showed up at
her daughter's house at noon and
found the tot sleeping in his crib.
No one else was in the house.
She told Deputy Lisa


Thibideau her daughter, Miles,
called her earlier in the day to ask
her to babysit. The grandmother
told her she could not babysit.
The grandmother then called
Miles back later and she report-
edly told her she had a babysitter
and was going "bridge jumping"

The grandmother went to her
daughter's house to check on the
situation and found the child
alone, then called the Sheriff's
Office.

He noted, "We don't want

5 and 6:30 p.m. Thursday in
Key Largo at the Holiday him at
mile marker 99.7; and
+ 5 and 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in


Islamorada, at the Holiday Isle
Resort, mile marker 84.
In each workshop, staff will
make a presentation of goals and
issues at approximately 5:15 p.m.
and 6:45 p.m., respectively.
Workshops will be open until 8
p.m.
"There's a lot of interest in
this," Friar said.

Not all embrace TBRs

contract of offer to purchase and
must include a deposit of
$25,000 per right."
Once an offer is accepted,
the deposit is non-refundable.
Rogers said the deal might be
worth it to many people wish-
ing to build in Marathon.
"You've got 130 people on
that list waiting for ROGO
points, and with the number
that get freed up [24 every
year], some are never going to
get them," Rogers said. "But
they are available elsewhere."
Rogers said his trust owns
several properties on 105th
Street formerly known as the
Palms trailer park.
The trailers have been
removed, but the building
rights associated with those
trailer units remain with the
properties.
"We bought [the properties]
with the intention of holding
them and at some point devel-
oping and selling, and prices
were insane back then,"
Rogers said. "That all fell apart
with real estate market."


"I'm not trying to glitz it up.
I need to pay off that mortgage
and pay off that construction
loan," 'said Rogers, who
explains his situation on the
Web site www.keyspalm
estates.com that lists for sale
many lots, homes and TBRs
along 105th Street.
The TBR ordinance,
approved in February, allows
the transfer of residential and
transient' building rights,
which exist with all currently
built homes and hotel rooms,
to other sites (if density and
environmental rules allow it),
held onto for future use, or be
sold.
City Planning Director Fred
Gross said Rogers has not
applied to the city to determine
if he is in possession of any
TBRs, and any sales and trans-
fers must be done through the
Planning Department.
Rogers said he is waiting
for accepted offers from buy-
ers before approaching the city
and paying the associated
application fees.
Rogers said he would also
cover the $60,000 affordable
housing contribution required


to transfer a building right.
While the sale of TBRs is
what many planners had hoped
for as a way to relieve pressure
from the backlogged ROGO
system, at least one ROGO
applicant who received
Roger's letter wasn't. very
impressed.
"In an area when prices are
already so much higher, who is
going to buy them? Somebody
who is wealthy and not really
adding anything to the commu-
nity," said New Jersey school-
teacher Roger Wood, who has
been waiting in ROGO since
2005 to build on a canalfront
Marathon lot.
"I:m a teacher, and I teach
kids about standing in line,
being patient and playing fair,"
he added. "It makes the person
standing in line and doing
what's right feel like the fool."
Wood said city planners
didn't know how his efforts to
obtain a permit would be
affected when the city insti-
tutes a new building permit
allocation system later this
summer, pending approval by
the state Department of
Community Affairs.


Rat killers close in


on neighborhoods


One rodent
reported dead
on Grassy Key
By DAVID BALL
dball@keynoter.com

One Gambian giant pouch rat
has been reported dead during
the first week of a state and fed-
eral program to eradicate the
invasive rodents on Grassy Key.
Workers will now close in on
residential areas where the rats
are supposedly concentrated.
Scott Hardin, exotic-species
coordinator with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, said residents on
Grassy Key should keep a close
eye on pets and children during
the next 10 days as poison is
added to some 400 bait stations
near homes and yards.
"The toxicant should start to
be added on Thursday and then
into Friday and maybe
Saturday," Hardin said. "Then
we're into a seven-day checking
period."
Workers with the U.S.
Department of Agriculture will
add a zinc-phosphide toxicant to
the small PVC-tube bait stations
that have sat with peanut butter
bait since May 23.

DeMala returns
to AIDS Help

Pam DeMala has rejoined
AIDS Help as director of com-

After her home was flooded
and heavily damaged during
Hurricane Wilma in October
2005, she resigned from AIDS
Help to oversee repair of her
home. During that time she
stayed active with AIDS Help,

can potentially attract other ani-
mals, wildlife officials say only
the slender and flexible rats can
fit into the 4-inch tubes.
However, there is a small risk of
a rat dropping the bait or a dead
rat being consumed by other
wildlife and being poisoned.
Hardin said 600 bait stations
on the east end of Grassy Key
have already received toxicant,
and only one reported dead rat is
not a failure.
"I really didn't expect to have
any [dead rats] reported,"
Hardin said. "I figured they'd
take the bait and go back and die
in their burrows."
The Gambian rats, an African
species that can grow up to 9
pounds, reportedly appeared on
Grassy Key sometime between
1999 and 2001, when they were
released into the wild by a resi-
dent breeding them to sell to pet
stores.
Gambian rats elsewhere in
the country were linked to a
monkey-pox outbreak in 2003,
and the species was made illegal
for trade in the U.S. The rats are
now a "prohibited species" by
the FWC, and only researchers,
exhibitors and those with strin-
gent biosecurity can possess
them with a permit.
The Grassy Key population is
supposedly the only wild breed-
ing population in the U.S., and
wildlife officials fear the rats
could somehow escape the Keys
and potentially wreak havoc on
the sensitive South Florida and
Everglades ecosystems.
Hardin has studied the Grassy

FSU now mandates


health insurance


Associated Press


A broken bone, cuts and bruis-
es weren't enough to keep a
Florida State University student
out of class after being hit by a
car while riding his bicycle three
years "ago.
His $30,000 hospital bill,
though, forced him to drop out
because neither he nor the driver
had insurance, recalled Leslie
Sacher, director of the universi-
ty's Thagard Student Health
Center.
The student, whose identity is
confidential, eventually worked
out an arrangement to pay the bill
and he returned to school the next
semester. It was the last straw,
though, for health center officials
who annually process hundreds
of medical withdrawals.
It took a bit longer than she
had hoped, but Florida State this
fall will be the state's first public
university to require health insur-
ance, starting with the freshman
class and other new or transfer-
students
If students lack their own cov-
erage that meets university crite-
ria, usually through a parent's
policy, Florida State will provide
it at a minimum annual cost' of
$1,449. Financial help will be
available for low-income stu-
dents.
Mandatory insurance is a
growing trend among the nation's
universities. It's nearly universal
among private schools and the
number of public universities
requiring it has grown from 25
percent to 35 percent in the past
two years, according to American
College Health Association fig-
ures.
The Florida Board of
Governors, which oversees the
state's 11 public universities, is
looking into the possibility of
expanding the requirement to the
other schools. A task force co-
chaired by Sacher next week will
complete a recommendation the
board will consider at its June 13
and 14 meeting in Miami.
Accidents are just one of sev-
eral factors driving the insurance
push, but it's the reason most
prominently mentioned on
Thagard's Web site. It wamsmore
than once emergency-room costs
alone could be enough to force a
student "into debt for life."
Another factor is uninsured


students who get sick often put
off or fail to get treatment or pre-
scriptions filled.
Florida State's tuition includes
a health fee that pays for office
visits at Thagard, but unless stu-
dents have insurance they must
pay for procedures, tests and pre-
scriptions offered at discount-
ed rates out of their own pock-
ets. The center also does not have
a wide array of specialists nor
does it provide emergency room
or hospital care.
The shootings last month at
Virginia Tech that left 33 people
dead including the gunman,
Seung-Hui Cho, could hasten the
national movement because a
judge had ordered Cho to receive
mental-health treatment.
"Virginia Tech was the
unlucky school, but it could hap-
pen anywhere," Sacher said.

Authorities release
plane-crash details

The cinematographer of the
film "The Blair Witch Project"
could not escape from a plane
that crashed into the sea in 2004
because he had tied himself to his
seat with rope, the National
Transportation Safety Board
said.
Neal Fredericks, 35, drowned
as he was dragged down by the
wreckage of the single-engine
plane off the Dry Tortugas
islands, according to an NTSB
report released May 29. He was
flying with others in August 2004
to get footage for the movie
"Cross Bones."
Before taking off, Fredericks
had the plane's cargo door
removed to better film Fort
Jefferson and the islands off Key
West. He then tied a rope across
his legs and around his waist and
seat, and his camera. His seat
was equipped with a seat belt.
The plane's engine sputtered
as it approached the fort. The
pilot, Paul Bates of Islamorada
failed to restart it, and was forced
to ditch the airplane.

Courthouse staying open


Commissioners
say closure
dead en arrival
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission meets today to look
at ways to cut its capital
budget, but one thing's clear:
It's not going to cut it by
doing away with the county
courthouse in Marathon.
"There is no way this is
going to happen," said
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy, echoing the senti-
ments of each of the five
commissioners.
"The people of this county
spent too much time and
effort to provide the public
services in all three areas of
the Keys."
Last week, County
Administrator Tom Willi met
with Chief Circuit Court
Judge Sandra Taylor to let her
know that one of the options
he would.present to the com-
mission this week is to close


the Marathon courthouse.
"It's definitely not going to
happen," county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said. "But
it gave me the opportunity to
inspect the courthouse and I
was horrified. It's disgrace-
ful. The judge's chambers
leak; she has to enter through
the same area as do the pris-
oners."
The state of the building,
Willi told the Keynoter last
week, is one of the reasons he
said it might be fiscally
responsible to close the facil-
ity.
"We have to do something
to help them, not cut them
out," Di Gennaro said. "We
should consider doing some
temporary maintenance until
we get enough money to build
a new damn courthouse."
Willi says everything is on
the table as he tries to come
up with ways to pare back the
overall budget that sits at
$373 million this year.
The Florida Legislature is
promising tax reform, which
could put a hurt on the prop-


erty tax revenue for the coun-
ty. The current budget is
expected to bring in $83.76
million in ad valorem taxes.
The commission convenes
today at 10 a.m. at the Harvey
Government Center in Key
West.
The chilling effect of a
tight budget year has already
had an effect on possible
future capital expenses for the
county. A proposed joint proj-
ect with Keys Federal Credit
Union to locate a branch
library on Stock Island has
been cut out of a proposal that
comes before the county's
Development Review Com-
mittee next week.
"Due to funding con-
straints, Monroe County, at
this time, is not able to com-
mit to the construction of a
library," a representatives of
the credit union wrote in the
development application.
In 2005, the County
Commission strongly
endorsed the idea of working
with the credit union to con-
struct a library as part of a
new credit union branch on
Stock Island, facing U.S. 1.

Legislators keep us

in the dark on taxes

The process underway to revolutionize Florida's property tax
system has been illuminating. But only because it's been large-
ly conducted in the dark, behind closed doors, and with period-
ic leaks to the press from the two king makers in the
Legislature.
Even a last-minute negotiating session Monday failed to pro-
duce any resolution, and House and Senate conferees appear to
be still far apart on the numbers.
Lest we fall into the trap of accepting that the legislative
process is like this horse trading done in back rooms the
public ought to be a lot more skeptical about the plans now
being floated.
OK, we agree that taxes rose too fast in Florida's super-heat-
ed real estate frenzy of the past half-decade, but the cure from
some legislative quarters could prove fatal to the patient, i.e.,
those of us who live and work in the Sunshine State.
Take the idea.of reducing local taxes only oh homesteaded
properties. Here in the Keys, that would further punish the sea-
sonal residents who own homes and apartments here or those
who rent out their place.
Based on the latest figures from Monroe County Property
Appraiser Ervin Higgs, non-homesteaded properties represent
nearly 60 percent of the total residential tax base in the Keys
(58.4 percent on the 2007 tax roll),
And if there's not some tax relief for commercial properties,
then forget it scarce and pricey rentals in the Keys will only
get more scarce and even more pricey. And we can't afford any
more of that kind of tax "cure."
Another idea being floated by House Speaker Marco Rubio
does away with the voter-mandated Save Our Homes constitu-
tional amendment for a graduated scale of exemptions. But
where those lines are drawn varies so widely across Florida
that it's hard to imagine a system that wouldn't be challenged
in courts if it makes it past voters in January 2008.
Along with so many other unknowns, this makes us even
more nervous about the final outcome.
Tuesday's St. Petersburg Times editorial was headlined:
"Vague, secret deals: No way to fix taxes."
We think they had it about right. "After a few more secret
meetings and telephone calls," the Times opined, "legislative
leaders are expected to hand down the formulas and percent-
ages for calculating their proposed tax rollbacks and homestead
exemptions."
But last time we checked, Florida lawmakers are not
enshrined atop some.Mount Sinai handing down sacred scrolls.
For now, we remain skeptics about the gospel of tax reform
being preached these days in the state Capitol.

Shark killings disregard our ecosystem


EDITOR:
A recent meal at an outdoor restaurant and
marina in Marathon allowed my wife and me
to witness a disturbing yet completely avoid-
able exhibition of cruelty and environmental
indifference.
While observing the daily ritual of a charter
captain filleting the catch of the day for his
customers, we could not help but notice two
small sharks that had been unloaded from the
boat, and placed side by side on the dock.
Only after the other fish had been readied
for their patrons were the sharks attended to.
The apparently prized yet useless jaws of the
sharks were cut from their faces, while their
carcasses were carelessly discarded into the
nearby shallows of the gulf.
As we finished our meal, I could not help
but feel contempt toward the captain, who


above anyone else should respect the ecosys-
tem that allows him and his crew the opportu-
nity to earn a living from such a fragile
resource.
Prior to witnessing this meaningless butch-
ery, I falsely assumed that a charter captain
would likely want to set an educational exam-
ple for his patrons by releasing any unwanted,
undersized or prohibited species of fish.
While the captain was within his legal right
to capture and keep the two sharks, I strongly
oppose the ultimate fate of the two creatures. I
also falsely believed that anglers who pay for
the services of a charter captain would have
enough compassion and environmental aware-
ness of their own to question the actions of
such a so-called professional.

Rental problems ruining the neighborhood


EDITOR:
Thanks to some slick maneuvering and greed
of developers, our quiet town of Layton has
become a nightmare for some homeowners
because of a condo/hotel complex built on a
canal facing a residential neighborhood.
The developer and apparently the City
Council proclaim that because it is on commer-
cial property, they are completely within their
rights and we are just going to have to deal with
the people and their noise even though this
property is literally only 50 feet from our home.
What about our right to privacy and our right to
peace and quiet?
We have lived here for seven years and
before this complex was built, I could hear a
pin drop at night and actually sit on the roof
and watch the sunset. But now as soon as I
walk out my door, there are a dozen people out
on balconies and the dock looking to see what
we are doing. There are 10 units with three
floors on a piece of property that should hold
only three homes. When they are occupied,
every light on every floor is on. How obnoxious
is that?
The code enforcement officer says its com-
mercial property and he has no say. Well, who

Beware cuts in taxes
EDITOR:
While there's never been a tax cut that I
didn't like, we should bear in mind that
levying property taxes is one of the powers
of local government, while a sales tax shifts
the power to the state or federal government.
In other words, it engineers a subtle power-
grab.
Local politicians, short-sightedly, will
bemoan the loss of revenue for beloved dis-
cretionary projects and charities.
But in the bigger picture, a mandatory
reduction in property taxes will also mean a
sizeable and permanent loss of local self-
rule. Caveat voter.

do we call then to stop the insanity and blatant
misuse of our beloved key?
There would be fewer problems if there were
an office on the premises because they could
not do whatever they please.
Granted, the Keys are a party destination, but
there should be a limit to what happens, who
they rent to and who takes responsibilities for
their actions, especially when it directly affects
the neighborhood. This kind of thing is happen-
ing all over the Keys and it truly is a shame.
I just wanted to state my opinion because
obviously it does not matter what the citizens
think anymore; it's all about the almighty dollar.
Our waters are being polluted by these peo-
ple killing undersize fish and throwing the car-
casses in our canals, our air is being polluted by
their loud music and shouting, our water is
being wasted by them running it constantly and
now our privacy is being invaded by people
who don't care about their surroundings.
And the biggest shame of all is that no one
on our City Council seems to care or do any-
thing about it.

Fishermen proud to support students


EDITOR:
If you missed the annual
Marathon High School Graduating
Class Scholarship Awards
Ceremony, you missed a very spe-
cial heartwarming event. To expe-
rience and see just what businesses
and organizations donate large
amounts of money in the form of
scholarships to support the future
of Marathon's youth is an over-
whelming experience.
You may be surprised at all
those who donate to this scholar-
ship fund, and also surprised at
those in this town who were
noticeably absent. We applaud,
respect and support all those who
participate and are proud to say we
live and work in the same town.
The Marathon chapter of the
Organized Fishermen of Florida is
proud to say that we have been a
donor to the scholarships for more
than 25 years. Through many fish-
ing seasons both goqd and hurri-


cane ruined, we have never missed
a year to contribute. Our ability to
continue to participate in the
scholarship program is the result
of our only fundraiser, the annual
Original Marathon Seafood
Festival.
So again, please support the
Marathon High School Scholarship
Fund, all of those who contribute
to it and, of course, the Seafood
Festival so OFF can continue our
pledge to the scholarship fund for
another 25 years.
Thank you to the Marathon
High School principal and staff for
the honor of being part of this pro-
gram, and a very special thank you
to a very special lady, student
counselor Robin Lynne. We are
truly blessed.

Hunger is an epidemic


EDITOR:
On Tuesday, the Florida Keys
joined millions of Americans
nationwide in observing Hunger
Awareness Day in remembrance of
the more than 35 million people in
the United States who are living
on the brink of hunger.
The face of hunger will surprise
you. Hunger affects working fami-
lies who are forced to make choic-
es between food and basic necessi-
ties like heat, medicine or rent. It
strikes people with sudden illness
or new responsibility to care for
an additional family member. It
does not discriminate against age,
race, gender or ethnicity.
KAIR (Keys Area


Interdenomina-tional Resources) is
a local organization dedicated to
providing food for those in need
residing in the Middle Keys. I urge
everyone to contact KAIR and
other local agencies to find out
how to join the fight against
hunger. Hunger has been a silent
epidemic for too long.
It's time to put an end to hunger
in America, but we cannot do this
alone. We need your help. The
more people who become aware of
hunger, the more hungry
Americans we can serve. Together,
we can and will create a hunger-
free America.

Marina staff needs kindness training


EDITOR:
We would like to address the
anger the City of Marathon Marina
has toward the people that transit
Boot Key Harbor. The attitude is
very aggressive at all times. It is
like staying in a detention center.
We are Floridians and U.S. citi-
zens, and we are treated like out-
laws.
We understand there is an ele-
ment the police need to address,
but that is on every street. On the
street, they need warrants. Law
enforcement goes through training
to maintain its composure while
dealing with the public. We sug-
gest that if the marina employees
are going to be acting as law
enforcement, they need to be


trained to control their tempers.
We are on vacation aboard for
the fresh air and love of the water,
and also the freedom from the hus-
tle and bustle. The aggressive atti-
tude has been getting worse and
worse as time goes by.
When we come back from our
cruise to the Bahamas, we look to
Boot Key as a place to refit our
boat. Marathon has always had
top-notch marine-related business-
es, of which we have used every
one. We love the Keys and have
come back over the past 30 years
many times with lots of great sto-
ries, and would like to have our
time here be great, not a war.

Rossi's tasty defense:

The In-N-Out Burger


When it comes to defenses, the Keys
can be pretty creative.
One of the all-time bests is that of a
man charged with drunk driving in
Marathon a few years back. The video
from the cop car showed his car weav-
ing, and he could barely stand when
pulled over at the Circle K.
But in short order, the defendant was
acquitted. His defense: He was driving
erratically because he was fighting off
his parakeet, which somehow got loose
in the car and attacked him.
The wild-bird defense. Perfect.
That kind of creativity comes to mind
when Key West City
Commissioner Mark Rossi
uses the burger and T-shirt
defense after being accused
of violating the Sunshine
Law.
Last week, State Attorney
Mark Kohl charged Rossi
with the misdemeanor for
admitting he spoke to Mayor ..
Morgan McPherson on the
telephone about a budget
issue. But according to Rossi
and McPherson, city business Larry
wasn't the real topic of their Keynot
talk.
This is what Rossi and
McPherson say actually transpired on
that call, from Rossi in Key West to
McPherson in Las Vegas:
"I asked Morgan to get me a T-shirt,"
Rossi said. In-N-Out Burger "is a chain
from California and it's really good."
"One hundred percent of my memory
is that Mark contacted me because he
was an avid T-shirt collector,"
McPherson said. "And he
said the In-N-Out burgers ,.,
were the best thing since
sliced bread."
Well, they are, according
to the In-N-Out Burger Web
site: "At In-N-Out Burger,
freshness is everything. -..
That's why in a world
where food is often chemically
processed, prepackaged and frozen, In-
N-Out makes everything the old fash-
ioned way."
And I thought the Big Kahuna Burger
from "Pulp Fiction" was actually the
best slab of beef. Because if the gun-tot-
ing Jules said it right before offing the
drug-stealing Brett, I believe it.
If it seems a bit of a stretch to think a


i:


I
Ij


commissioner would call the mayor just
to get that awesome In-N-Out burger
shirt, well, Rossi doesn't,
"In-N-Out, it's just a really good ham-
burger," he told me Tuesday. "They have
the best .french fries, too, better than
McDonalds."
Come now, commissioner, you expect
us to believe you called the mayor in
Vegas because the In-N-Out Burger is to
die for? And that your conversation had
nothing to do with a budget question
coming before the City Commission?
"The best burger," stresses Rossi, not a
small man who likely has tested all
kinds of burgers and fries in
his lifetime.
And he really needed that
T-shirt which he planned
to proudly wear to Tuesday's
City Commission meeting.
"They're cool T-shirts, not
just shirts," he says, this
coming from an avid T-shirt
collector.
Now that he has his Vegas
In-N-Out Burger shirt, he's
aiming for more. Because the
Kahn In-N-Out Burger is not only
er Editor in Vegas, it's also in
California.
"I got a buddy in San
Francisco, I'm trying to get one from
there." It will go with his other favorites.
"I got some nice Harley shirts," he
says. And the Rolling Stones, too. "The
Stones in Berlin and in Amsterdam. And
my Coast Guard shirt."
The In-N-Out Burger T-shirt defense.
It's so ludicrous, it just might be true.
And the more Rossi sings it, the more
believable it sounds, no
matter how laughable it
sounds.
S And from here, it sounds
pretty laughable.
But I've never been out
west, and out west is the
only place to get an In-N-
Our Burger. Now, I might
have to plan my next vacation just to try
that fresh In-N-Out Burger.
Because the commissioner says
they're "cool," like the T-shirts.
Oh, by the way, Kohl is dropping the
Sunshine Law charge if Rossi goes to
Sunshine Law school. Rossi says he
will.
And for graduation, how about In-N-
Out Burgers for everyone?

New law helps feds


Sex offender
absconded from
Rhode Island
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A convicted child molester
who illegally moved to Big
Pine Key became the first per-
son arrested in South Florida
under a new federal law on sex-
ual offenders.
Richard M. Dumont, 55, left
Rhode Island without approval,
then failed to register as a sex
offender after taking up resi-
dence in Florida, according to
the office of Alexander Acosta,
U.S. attorney for South Florida.
Dumont was the first person
charged in South Florida under
terms of the federal Adam


Walsh Child Protection Act,
which became law in July 2006.
He was taken into custody
May 16 after being found living
in a camper trailer near Avenue
J on Big Pine.
Dumont was convicted of
second-degree molestation in
2004 in Rhode Island. He was
accused of using a flashlight to
sneak into the bedroom of a 12-
year-old girl, the daughter of
his then-roommate. The girl
said she was fondled.
He reportedly disappeared
from Rhode Island in January,
and abandoned probation
requirements to undergo coun-
seling for drug abuse- and the
sexual offense.
In response to demands from
the probation supervisor in
Rhode Island that he appear,
Dumont wrote back in March.


"In the letter, Dumont stated
that he was residing in Big Pine
Key and that he did not plan to
return to Rhode Island,"
according to a U.S. Marshals
Service affidavit.
He was taken into custody
eight days after a federal war-
rant was issued.
State laws have required
sexual offenders and predators
to register with local authori-
ties.
The Adam Walsh Child
Protection Act established a
national database of sexual
offenders, and increases penal-
ties for offenders who fail to
register after moving from state
to state.
It -was named for Adam
Walsh, 6, who was murdered in
1981 after being kidnapped
from a Broward County mall.
His father, John, now hosts
"America's Most Wanted."


Sheriff tries to keep funding flat


Some positions
would be cut
under proposal
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office is tightening
its belt, cutting out 11 jobs to
propose a $43 million budget
for 2007-08, equal to the
agency's current budget.
"It's somewhat detrimental
because we're reducing four
law enforcement road enforce-
ment officers," Sheriff Rick
Roth said. "Our response times
in the Lower Keys will suffer a
little bit from that."
"It's a flat budget,"
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Deputy Becky Herrin said.
"There is a $17,000 increase,
but that is at the request of
Marathon."
Both Islamorada and
Marathon reimburse the coun-
ty for policing, meaning the
municipalities pay more than
$6 million toward the overall
$43 million.
Herrin said the increase is
to add a K-9 unit and overtime
pay in Marathon.
The Monroe County
Commission is looking at


across-the-board budget cuts
for 2007-08 as the Florida
Legislature looks for ways to
ease property tax burdens
statewide.
Any tax relief that comes
out of the special session
beginning June 12 could dras-
tically reduce tax revenue that
local governments have grown
accustomed to.
The proposed Sheriff's
Office budget provides a 3 per-
cent cost-of-living increase
while paring 11 positions.
"The worst is the reduction
of school resource officers,"
Roth said, adding that he's
been working with the School
District to find funding for one
officer so there will be four
school resource officers
throughout the county.
The County Commission
could ask that some positions
be reinstated, but it might also
ask.for further reductions.
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy says doing away with
the TraumaStar medical heli-
copter service might be one
way to save the county money.
The helicopter, which pro-
vides emergency transport for
accident victims in the Lower
and Middle Keys, is just get-
ting up to speed, Roth said.


"The county has gone to
great efforts to get a pilot staff,,
nursing staff, and we're really
close to having it all together,"
he said. "We're just now start-
ing negotiations for paying
flights, which will offset the
costs of the service."
Murphy says there are other
carriers willing to provide the
service, though Monroe
County bought the $4 million
secondhand Sikorsky a year
ago to do the job.
Roth says the county tried
to get Life Net, the company
now saying it will begin serv-
icing the Lower Keys, to pro-
vide that service.
"We tried to get them down
two years ago so we didn't
have to go through all we went
through," he said. "They said
there wasn't enough money
down here."
Other cuts proposed in the
Sheriff's Office budget
include:
Eliminating the Big Pine
storefront substation, saving
$16,000 a year.
Sponsoring fewer people
in the local law enforcement
academy, saving $114,158.
Making changes in the
contract that delivers food
services at the Stock Island
main Detention Center, saving
$96,250 a year.

Mancini joins District 5 race


HARC member
is looking to
unseat Menendez
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

With almost five months to go
before the Oct. 2 Election Day,
another candidate has emerged
for 'the Key West City
Commission.
Vincent Mancini, vice chair-
man of the Historic Architectural
Review Commission, has filed to
run for the District 5 seat now
held by Jose Menendez, who has-
n't filed to run for re-election.


"I think that the city is in such
a state of flux, I think it's a good
time for me to offer some of my
expertise," Mancini said. "I think
I could be very helpful."
The 41-year resident, who's
been involved in numerous com-
munity groups, said above all he
would like to bring back common
sense to local government, as
"common sense can rule over
what is black and white."
Mancini says his involvement
with HARC instilled in him an
understanding of the importance
of preservation and the "uphill
battle" of maintaining Key West's
historical integrity.


Housing survey

is about to start


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


An affordable-housing survey
to determine Key West residents'
needs is in the works after college
professor Karen Larson talked to
members of the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West, Key West
Chamber of Commerce and
island employees over two days
of workshops at the Radisson
Hotel.
This week, Larson is working
with the city's affordable-hous-
ing coordinator, Paul Clayton,
Mayor Morgan McPherson and
Assistant City Manager John
Jones to learn more about the
city's most talked-about problem.
She said the survey would be
divided into three sections of
questions: affordable housing,
development and Key West cul-
ture.
"This is really going to be a
Key West-authored survey which
I hope, in turn, will be very use-
ful to local residents," she said.
"The intent of the study is to look
at out-migration."
Clayton agrees with Larson,
saying, "We are excited that we
are going to get some feedback
because part of the solution is
finding out why people are leav-
ing."
Larson is a professor of cultur-
al anthropology and interdiscipli-
nary studies at Gustavus
Adolphus College at St. Peter,


Minn. She's studied cultural
anthropology for 35 years and
worked on various projects
across the country, including
studies in China and Norway.
And now, she's contracted by
Key West to spread awareness of
the issue.
The workshops ended at 3
p.m. Tuesday, at which point
Larsen took to the streets to ask
employees across the island
details of their lives to gain per-
spective on the issue.
Once the questions are final-
ized, which will most likely be in
the next couple of weeks, the sur-
vey will be sent out to everyone
on the island in July, she said.
Larson said there is always a
low return rate for surveys of this
nature. For that reason, she hopes
people take into account the
severity of the problem.
The findings of the survey
will be taken to McPherson and
spread among interested groups
in town such as the Alliance of
Community Housing and the
Community Housing Committee
to determine exactly what action
needs to be taken.
"This community has a chal-
lenge," Larson said. "It has a cul-
tural position it might be able to
maintain.
"Will [Key West] become a
community of individualism?"
she asked. "Or will it remain
community-value oriented?"


Mancini says he will bring
that passion to the commission if
given the chance.
Menendez said he welcomes
the competition.
"I think the more the merrier,"
Menendez said. "I want many
more people to do what Vincent
did."
If re-elected, Menendez prom-
ises to continue to "be sincere and
honest with the people."
His background "has proven
that I am capable and I like to lis-
ten to people's problems," he
said. "And I have done my best to
my ability to solves people's
problems."
Also in the running:
Barry Gibson, owner of
Shades of Key West, and attorney
Richard Klitenick for City
Commissioner Harry Bethel's
seat in District 4, which includes
North and South Roosevelt, and
midtown area.
+ Commissioner Mark Rossi
will fight for his District 2 seat
against a new opponent, recently
resigned Hometown PAC
Chairman Todd German. Rossi
has not officially filed his candi-
dacy yet.
+ Morgan McPherson re-filed


for another two-year term as Key Family Dentistry,
West mayor. So far, no other can- 745-1522
didates have applied. William Tycoliz, D.D.S
Retiree Tom Milone, DN11389
Realtor Charles Lee, Bethel and
incumbents Charlie Bradford and
Mona Clark are running for seats
on the Utility Board, which over-
sees Keys Energy Services.

FPL pushing for coal plant


Environmentalists
pushing just as
hard against it
Associated Press

Florida Power & Light is
urging state utility regulators to
let it build a proposed coal-
fueled power plant in Glades
County to help it meet demand
and move away from its reliance
on natural gas.
But the plant has been
strongly opposed by environ-
mentalists, including those in
the Keys, despite claims from
FPL that it would use the latest
clean-coal technology.
The state Public Service
Commission is set to decide
next week on how FPL should
move forward, and has received
three separate possible recom-
mendations from its staff: allow
the plant to go forward in 2013
as planned; push back the plans
by about a year to see if new
technologies might emerge; or
reject the proposal.
FPL officials have said
they're glad the PSC's staff rec-
ommendations included the pos-
sibility of moving forward with
the proposed plant, and said
Tuesday they're pushing hard
for the PSC to follow that
option.
"The other two alternatives
are not in the best interest of
FPL customers," company
spokesman Mayco Villafana
said. "We feel they just will not
work."
The staff of the regulatory
agency said last week that mov-

ing forward with the proposed
coal plant was its primary rec-
ommendation. But the regula-
tors can also consider the other
two options.
FPL President Armando
Olivera said in a statement last
week that delaying the plant
could, in effect, prevent it from
being built because of cost and
site availability issues.
The company said it is being
encouraged by the state to diver-
sify its fuel use, away from nat-
ural gas, because of the volatili-
ty of the price of gas. But if the
company can't build a coal
plant, it would have to build
more natural gas plants, it said.
If the company doesn't build a
plant, it would have to lower
how much reserve power it has,
Olivera said.
Environmentalists have come
out strong against the plant -
partly because of its proximity
to the Everglades. Glades
County is on the southwest side
of Lake Okeechobee.
"This proposed Florida
Power & Light plant would
spew mercury and global-warm-
ing gasses into one of the most


environmentally sensitive
places in the United States a
place that taxpayers are spend-
ing billions to clean up," David
Guest, an attorney with
Earthjustice, said earlier this
month.
Environmentalists have said
Florida should do more to
reduce demand and increase the
use of alternative energy
sources. The PSC staff agreed
with FPL, however, that
increased efficiency likely
won't meet the demand in FPL's
service area in the coming years.
FPL, the state's largest elec-
tric utility, says the proposed
$5.7 billion plant will use new
technology that that involves
grinding the coal and burning it
at super high temperatures,
which removes most of the pol-
lutants emitted by traditional
coal-burning power plants.
Manley Fuller, chairman of
the Florida Wildlife Federation,
said it's not clean enough.
"Claims are being made that
this plant is some leap forward
in terms of technology," Fuller
said. "It's a slightly improved
version of traditional pulverized
coal, and we can do a lot better
than that."

Wanted Keys man
found in California

A man wanted in the Keys for
stealing a large number of tools
and then pawning them was
-arrested in California and
retumed-hereto face the charges
Friday.
In February, Monroe County
Sheriff's Office Deputy Tom


Walker responded to a theft call
on Boca Chica Road on Big
Coppitt Key. The victim said 47-
year-old Wayne Williamson, who
rented from him, was stealing his
tools from a shed on his property.
He gave the deputy a list of
tools, including hammer drills, a
compressor, an impact wrench, a
framing gun, a digital camera and
a multi-meter. Total value of the
stolen items was about $2,500.
Detective Henry DelValle vis-
ited local pawn shops, recovering
most of the stolen items. He was
able to confirm from pawn-shop
records that Williamson was the
.one who pawned the stolen
items, Deputy Becky Herrin said.
A warrant was issued for
Williamson's arrest.
On May 4, DelValle received
a call from authorities in Orange
County, Calif., who said they had
Williamson in custody on the
Monroe County warrant.
Williamson is charged with
providing false ownership infor-
-mation to pawn shops and deal-
ing in stolen property.

Don't forget


re-entry stickers


City official
says they're
going fast
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


If you're a Keys resident
evacuating this hurricane season,
don't expect to return to the
islands without a hurricane 're-
entry decal from the Key West
Police Department or Monroe
County Sheriff's Office on your
vehicle.
"If a serious hurricane comes
through, then we need the sticker
to prove you're a resident," Key
West police spokeswoman
Christie Phillips said.
Key West's orange and white
stickers are available at City Hall
at 525 Angela St. from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. at the Human Resources
Office, and at the Police Depart-
ment at 1604 N. Roosevelt Blvd.
Countywide, they're available
Sheriff's Office stations, offices
of the tax collector and the
Harvey Government Center.

Dry lake reveals
historic artifacts

A statewide drought that
has bared portions of Lake
Okeechobee's bottom has also
been a boon to archaeologists,
exposing human remains,
boats and other finds that
could date back hundreds of
years.
Thousands of pieces of pot-
tery, five boats and scores of
human bone fragments have
been discovered as the lake
reached a historically low
level. It is the first time in
years some areas have been
exposed, prompting archaeolo-
gists to scour the lakebed.
More than 17 sites have
been identified in Palm Beach
County's portion of the lake in
the last three months. They are
scattered over miles of terrain.
The bone fragments are up
to 8 inches.
Associated Press


Key West Chief of Emergency
Management Craig Marston said
the stickers are essential to effi-
ciently handling a disaster situa-
tion.
"It is important and we're in
the process of getting more stick-
ers available," he said. "We are
stressing communications with
all corresponding agencies work-
ing with us. They will be looking
for and recognizing these per-
mits."
Proof of residency is required
to obtain the stickers. Documents
like a pay stub, driver's license or
sewer bill will suffice as proof,
Benefit Administrator Human
Resources Alice Parker said.
According to Parker, the
office has close to 1,000 of the
stickers available.
With the start of hurricane
season last Friday, an influx of
residents has come to the office
to grab their stickers, she said.
While the stickers never
expire, she said, they are notori-
ous for fading to the point they
are unrecognizable.
"We usually tell people to
keep them in their glove box until
they need them," she said.
The stickers are color-coded
by area residency.

Hendrick sentence


Prosecutors
had sought
prison time
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The federal government on
Tuesday appealed the five years
of probation that former
Monroe County Attorney Jim
Hendrick received in May fol-
lowing his conviction on cor-
ruption charges.
In February, a jury convicted
Hendrick, 59, of obstructing
justice, conspiracy to obstruct
justice and two counts of wit-
ness tampering. The charges
arose from an investigation
linking Hendrick to former
County Commissioner Jack
London in a bribery scheme.
U.S. District Court Judge
Shelby Highsmith sentenced
Hendrick to the probation.
U.S. Attorney Alexander
Acosta gave notice Tuesday
that he will appeal the sentence
to the 11th Circuit Court of
Appeal. Acosta's office had
sought prison time.
The case began in the mid-
1990s when developer Marvin
Rappaport paid political con-
sultant Randal Hilliard to expe-
dite the redevelopment of the
former Hall's Fish Camp in
Marathon into a hotel.
According to the investigation,
$29,000 of that payment was
funneled to London in 1997 in

exchange for speeding up the
process.
Hilliard, who secretly
recorded numerous conversa-
tions with Hendrick, was grant-
ed immunity and testified
against Hendrick during the
trial.
The U.S. Attorney's Office
had also counted on London's
testimony, but London, facing
three years in prison after
pleading guilty to filing a false
tax return for failing to report
the bribe, died in-November.
Rappaport was not charged
due to the statute of limitations.
Under terms of his proba-
tion, Hendrick must remain
under supervision for five
years. He is required to pay a
$50,000 fine and perform 2,500
hours of community service. In
addition, Hendrick must be
employed for the duration of
his probation, though he cannot
consult, lobby or work for any-
one in government.
Hendrick was suspended
from The Florida Bar in March,
a suspension that remains in
effect until all appeals are ruled
upon.
He has been a member of
The Florida Bar since 1972,
specializing in land-use law as
well as city, county and local
government law. He served as
county attorney from 1995 to
2002 and continued on as the
county Land Authority's attor-
ney until 2003.

Apple disciples and converts
may rejoice in this week's open-
ing of Macintosh Systems
Solutions' retail store at 1001
Truman Ave. in Key West.
The 2,500-square-foot store


will feature a wide range of
Apple hardware, software and
accessories, including the popu-
lar iPod and the new Apple TV.
A grand-opening celebration
is set for noon to 8 p.m. Friday
and Saturday.
The high-visibility location is
a change for Macintosh Systems
Solutions, which has been pro-
viding sales, service and support
of Apple Computer Inc. products
throughout the Florida Keys


since 2000. Until now, the com-
pany has operated primarily on
the road and online.
Retail is very challenging, but
it almost feels like a no-brainer.
There's an untapped market
here, said Joe Kukella, who will
be managing the store for owner
Tom Mulhall.
Long dependent on direct
sales and licensed resellers such
as Macintosh Systems Solutions
to get its products to consumers,

Marina to offer customized packages


vs~si~css ~r


In addition to the boat storage
amenities, Watermark will con-
tinue its boat rental operation,
adding more new boats and
kayaks to its fleet. Other ameni-
ties will include a retail store
selling sundries, bait and tackle,
apparel, snacks and beverages.
The marina features 24-hour
surveillance cameras and an
electronic security entrance gate.
As opposed to the new trend
in boat storage ownership,
sometimes called- "rackomini-
ums," Watermark will be leas-
ing, not selling, wet and dry stor-
age units on a long- or short-
term basis.


The marina is open for boat
rentals and long-term and tran-
sient wet slip storage while the
construction is being handled by
local contractor John Esslinger
of Island Villa General
Contractors.
The project is slated for com-
pletion this August. Once com-
pleted, the marina will also
include a ship store, fish clean-
ing stations, barbecue area and
an elevated walkway with a
view of the coastline.

MACINTOSH / From 13

Apple in recent years has opened
dozens of retail outlets of its
own, mostly in major metro
areas. The nearest Apple Store is
at The Falls mall in Miami, so
Macintosh Systems Solutions
hopes to offer Keys residents a
similar experience much closer
to home.
"We're aiming for something
that mimics an Apple Store,"
Kukella said.
In addition to the showroom
full of Apple products, a "living
room" will showcase Apple TV,
which links users' iTunes con-


tent to their widescreen TVs, and
classroom space has been set up
for training and workshops.
Prices will be the same as
those available through Apple
Stores or online.
SKukella said he and Mulhall
are seeing a lot of Windows-
based PC users interested in
switching to Apple, and the new
store will give those "switchers"
a place to come in and kick the
tires, so to speak, by trying out
various desktop and laptop mod-
els.
Within a couple of months,
Kukella expects to offer free
introductory classes to new users
and a range of fee-based classes


on software popular with Apple
users.
"There's nowhere else to get
the kind of training we can
offer," he said. "People do what
they need to do and that's it.
We'll explain the concepts
behind what they're doing."
The company will continue to
offer the same Keyswide servic-
es it does now, but Kukella said
the addition of workspace in the
store might decrease the turn-
around time on some repairs.
"What will be nice is that
people will be able to bring stuff
in instead of waiting on a service
call," he said.

State Farm to set
'nofault' rates

State Farm will be able to cut
its car insurance rates by about 16
percent on average if lawmakers
do not continue the state's no-
fault accident system, state insur-
ance regulators ruled last week.
The Office of Insurance
Regulation granted State Farm's
request to lower rates by an aver-
age of about $360 a year for two-
car households. Those rates
would vary depending on cover-
age, discounts, geography and
'driver and car details.
The proposed rate decrease by
State Farm Mutual Automobile
Insurance, Florida's largest auto
insurer, is contingent, however,
on the no-fault system ending in


October as it is scheduled to do.
The no-fault system, which
requires drivers to get $10,000 in
personal injury protection cover-
age but puts restrictions on peo-
ple's right to sue if they are hit in
an accident and injured, sunsets
in October. However, some legis-
lators and Gov. Charlie Crist say
lawmakers could vote to retain it
in June during special session.
If the system does sunset,
drivers who cause accidents
would be responsible for paying
for the injury damages and those
who are injured would be able to
sue to get that money.
Some insurers say the system
has been plagued with fraud and
abuse, and supported the legisla-
ture's decision not to continue it.

Herbs may fight cancer


The findings
are preliminary
but hopeful
Associated Press

The first scientific tests of
some popular alternative medi-
cine products hint that
American ginseng might lessen
cancer fatigue and that flaxseed
might slow the growth of
prostate tumors.
But a big study,proved shark
cartilage worthless against lung
cancer, and doctors said people
should not take it.
The research was reported
Saturday at an American
Society of Clinical Oncology
conference in Chicago.
The ginseng and flaxseed
studies are small and prelimi-
nary, and specialists warned
against making too much .of
them because the substances
tested are not the same as what
consumers find on store
shelves.


But the results suggest that
some herbal remedies eventual-
ly may find niches for treating
specific cancers, symptoms or
side effects.
Debra Barton, a research
nurse at the Mayo Clinic in
Rochester, Minn., tested pow-
dered, four-year-old Wisconsin
ginseng root, which is different
from Asian ginseng and other
varieties "commonly sold, to
treat the extreme tiredness that
most people suffer from cancer
or its treatment.
She randomly assigned 282
people with breast, lung, colon
and other forms of cancer to
take either 750, 1,000 or 2,000
milligrams of ginseng or
dummy capsules daily for eight
weeks. Neither the participants
nor the researchers knew who
received what.
One-fourth of those on the
two highest doses said their
fatigue was moderately or much
better, compared with only 10
percent of those on the low dose


or dummy pills.
Results are promising, but it
is too soon to recommend that
people use ginseng, Barton said.
A better idea is exercise the
one treatment already shown to
help cancer fatigue, she said.
The flaxseed study was
aimed at fighting prostate can-
cer, not treating a side effect.
Four groups of about 40 men
who were scheduled to have
their prostates removed three
weeks later were assigned to get
either 30 grams of powdered
flaxseed, a low-fat diet, both or
neither until their surgery.
After the men's prostates
were removed, researchers
found that tumors had been
growing 30 to 40 percent slower
in the two groups taking
flaxseed, based on how quickly
cells were multiplying. Low-fat
diets had no effect on this, said
Wendy Demark-Wahnefried of
Duke University Medical
Center, who led the study.
"Our findings are compelling
but they're preliminary," she
cautioned.

Drugs found in Florida sharks Keys briefs


Source likely
treated sewage,
scientists say
Associated Press

Sharks in one Florida river are
getting a dose of human medicine,
and now scientists want to know if
it's a prescription for trouble.
Scientists recently found traces
of prescription antidepressants,
cholesterol-lowering drugs and
synthetic estrogens in the blood of
young bull sharks in the
Caloosahatchee River on
Florida's southwest Gulf Coast.
This summer, they'll study the
issue more widely. On Friday, sci-
entists with Mote Marine
Laboratory fished for bull sharks
as part of research to find out what
drugs the sharks encounter most
and whether the doses are large
enough to alter how they behave
and reproduce.
The sharks come into contact
with treated wastewater which
includes traces of the medications
previously identified as the cho-


lesterol-reducer Lipitor, various
antidepressants such as Prozac
and Zoloft, synthetic estrogens
used in birth-control pills, and
anti-inflammatory drugs such as
Celexa.

'...we have

certainly

very little

information

on what the

impacts

are.'
Jim Gelsleichter,
Mote Marine Laboratory

The Caloosahatchee receives
treated wastewater from several
sewer plants and passes by numer-
ous septic-system dependent com-
munities. And while the water is


treated, and treatment systems are
good at removing bacteria, they
are not designed to remove drugs,
which may have been flushed
down the toilet or excreted by
humans taking the medications.
To get a sense of the effect of
drugs on sharks over time, scien-
tists are tagging them with chemi-
cal-absorbing discs. The discs will
absorb chemicals from the envi-
ronment and be compared with
chemical quantities in the sharks'
blood. That will help scientists
estimate how well the sharks
absorb the chemicals they
encounter.
"We don't really have a good
sense of how much is in the envi-
ronment and we have certainly
very little information on what the
impacts are," said Jim
Gelsleichter, of the Mote Marine
Laboratory, who is leading the
study.
Bull sharks are a good species
to study because young sharks
spend a year swimming in brack-
ish waters and therefore come into
greater contact with human con-
taminants, including treated waste
water.

Terrill replaces


Mazur as coach


Former champ
takes over for
Keys 'legend'
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


For the first time in nearly
four decades, a new Hurricane
wrestling coach will open prac-
tice for the Coral Shores High
School mat team this winter.
Mark Terrill, who was a state-
champion wrestler in high
school and an NCAA champi-
onship contender for LSU, has
been named to the coaching
post.
Andy Mazur and C.J.
Worden, who both retired this
spring after long teaching
careers at Coral Shores, have
headed the Hurricane wrestling


program since the mid-t960s.
Mazur has led the program in
recent years, and capped it by
accompanying son James Mazur
(41-4) to the Florida state
wrestling tournament in James'
senior year.
Andy Mazur "is Coral Shores
wrestling" Coral Shores Athletic
Director Rich Russell said. "He
is an icon. Hundreds and hun-
dreds of kids have had their lives
improved because of the efforts
of Andy Mazur.
"He personifies the passion
and commitment you for in any
coach. We are losing a great
coach and a great friend."
Florida Christian wrestling
coach Charlie Zies came to
South Florida in 1975 and found
Mazur and Worden already on

the job.
"They would not have had
wrestling [in the Upper Keys]
without Andy and C.J.," Zies
said. "They've done a lot for
South Florida wrestling over the
years."
"Wrestlers are a different
breed of person," volunteer
assistant coach Harp Heffernan
said. "Andy Mazur taught and
influenced many kids in 37
years, and will be missed in the
Keys and the wrestling commu-
nity... We have had a lot of fun
and turned out some fine
wrestlers."
Mazur also was instrumental
in launching the Coral Shores
-swim team, now one of the top
public-school programs in South
Florida.
His daughter, Jana Mazur,
closed out her prep career with a
second-place spot in 1-meter
springboard at the Florida Class
1A championship meet last
November.
Terrill won high-school state


weight-class titles in two states,
Texas and Virginia.
He went on to become a
national junior-college champi-
on and an NCAA all-American
at Louisiana State.
He joined the Los Angeles
Police Department after gradua-
tion and launched a wrestling
program for at-risk children. He
moved to the Keys in 1994 after
taking a deputy's position with
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office.
He stepped away from law
enforcement three years ago to
open two businesses, Island
Courier and Overseas Bike and
Rescue (a pickup service for
motorcycles).
"Mark has the very tough job
of replacing a legend," Russell
said. "That said, he brings his
own legendary credentials. I
couldn't imagine in my wildest
dreams that we would be able
attract someone with his back-
ground."
Selection of the coach was by
Coral Shores Principal Ron
Martin in consultation with
Russell.

A little of this, a little of that


Random thoughts
on regulations,
fishing and more

Since we have a brief hiatus
from the major tournaments, I
thought it would be a good time
to reflect on some of the hot top-
ics and interesting stories that
have been shared on my radio
show "From the Water" the past
couple of weeks.
Those who like to fish, boat
or explore Everglades National
Park, take note. There are two
very important meetings here in
the Keys that require your voice.
Everglades National Park is
having public hearings on its
revised general management plan.
This is the park's once-every-20-
years policy-making session man-
dated by the government.
You might want to pay partic-
ular attention to alternatives A
thru D. They would make it dif-
ficult for most guides to contin-.
ue fishing these fish-rich waters
that have been so fished for a
hundred years.
Go to www.nps.gov/ever
for specifics. And educate your-
self and be heard by attending
one of two Keys public hearings,
at the Key Largo Holiday Inn
Thursday and Holiday Isle
Resort in Islamorada June 12.
Both start at 5 p.m.


With hurricane season is
upon us and once the winds start
increasing, the common ques-
tion by e-mailers and callers to
the radio show is: What is the
best way to tie off my boat to
minimize damage?
Just ask a captain. There are
more than 300 licensed captains
operating in the Keys and I
imagine that the odds that you
know one are pretty good.
Ask yourself this question;
When you see those pictures of
boats high and dry after a hurri-
cane, how many look like char-
ter boats and how many look
like your boat?



The tarpon bite on the ocean-
side flats seems to still be flat,
pun intended.
With the past three weeks of


Cal Sutphin


unseason-
ably strong
winds pri-
marily out
of the east,
according
to Capt.
Mike
K oz ma
from Isla-
morada,
water tem-
peratures
have low-
ered to the
mid-70s.


Usually by late May and early
June, water temps have hit the
low to mid-80s.
Though the tarpon have been
migrating in decent numbers,
they just aren't feeding. Some
fly fishermen have even been
switching over to (heavens) live
bait such as crabs or pinfish.



To say that 2007 has been
inconsistent for blackfin tuna
fishing is an understatement.
Captains up and down the
Keys have been waiting for the
fishery to break loose, which
should well be on its way by
now. Instead, they've settled for
a sporadic bite or the undersize
2- to 4-pounders that can be
found on the humps. Our neigh-
bors to the south seem to have
the hot bite of late, according to
an e-mailer out of Cuba:
"The whole month I could
see schools of blackfin tuna
breaking, just foaming the water
one half mile offshore. Perhaps
four boats working them. Later
in the day, I would see people
riding around on bikes with
blackfins hanging off their han-
dlebars trying to sell them. I do
not think the fish ever saw a
piece of ice. They do the same
with snook and muttons (snap-
pers)."



Now that we have a break (I
hope a permanent one) from the
howling winds over the past
three weeks, the offshore bite
looks nothing short of fantastic.
The anglers who have braved
going offshore -have. been
rewarded with huge catches of
dolphin, with the average size
ranging from 15 to 20 pounds.


I happened to see a nice catch
of mahi compliments of Capt.
Bennett Taylor on the Outer
Limits out of the A&B Marina in
Key West. Taylor pulled no
punches in mentioning the rough
sea conditions, but said he never
had to run farther than 700 feet
of water while picking up dol-
phin consistently under birds
and weeds.



I've always bragged about
how often the Keys are featured
weekly on national fishing TV
shows, but as I'm flipping
through my numerous statewide
and national magazine publica-
tions this month, I realized that
without the Keys they would be
hard pressed to fill their publica-
tions.
Just in the past month, you
can read articles featuring Capt.
Greg Poland from Islamorada in
Florida Sportfishing Magazine,
Capt. Jack Carlson of Marathon
in Gaff Magazine, ex-Dolphins
coach Jimmy Johnson from
Islamorada in Wave Magazine,
and Capt. Paul Ross out of
Bud 'n Mary's in Saltwater
Sportsman, just to name a few.



With the long-running suc-
cess of the Drambuie. Blue
Marlin Tournament, which hits
Key West mid-July, and the
great reports the past month
from anglers hooking up blue
marlin up and down the Keys,
the question was posed; Why
isn't there a big-money blue
marlin tournament outside of
Key West? Actually, why is
there only one in the Keys peri-
od?"
We. don't seem to have a
shortage of sailfish and dolphin
tournaments and, according to
Norm Isaacs of ESPN2 fame
who lives in Key 'Largo, there is
an untapped fishery here just
waiting, for someone to exploit
on a good level.
I've seen many boaters have
a blue marlin pop up in their
spread, but very few fishermen
actually specifically target these
large aggressive fish.

Cal Sutphin hosts 'From the
Water' from 7 to 10 a.m. week-
days on WFFG 1300-AM.

DOUBLETREE'
GRAND KEY RESORT Aia,,,n,
Sorida Keys
& &Keyest-


But they're not
the only species
ready for you

Nature has a way of taking
care of itself. Just look at what
we just had.
Tropical Storm Barry did
just what the major part of the
state needed wet it down
good. Yet for us, it came on the
heals of what we usually get-in
April, a setup like a Bermuda
high pattern that holds on. It
was here since a week before
the Marathon boat races and
remained strong through Barry.
That is several weeks of 20-
knot-plus winds, which inhibit-
ed anglers from getting out to
fish many venues of the. Keys.
Now things have changed and
we should be getting back into
our summer pattern.
Offshore, the key word is, as
expected in early June, dol-
phin.
They are pouring through
and the weather has finally
cooperated enough for just
about any vessel of any size to
get out there. I have more than
12 different reports of fish
caught the past few days
exceeding 50 pounds; and tons
of stories of fish over 30
pounds and lots of big smiles as
they were telling me about
them.
The best part about the
reports is that most of the
action has not been that far out,
at least for dolphin.
The majority of the reports
of good catches have been from
6 to 10 miles beyond the reef
line. This is where almost all of
the very large fish I've heard of
being caught have been, with
quite a few of them inside of
that, say, 150 to 350 feet. These
were caught sort of by acci-
dent. By that, I mean they were
trolling while they were headed
in or out to the deeper water
and found a big fish, mostly
around nothing at all no
birds, weeds or any debris in
the area.
All were caught on high-
speed lures such as Billy Baits
and all were being trolled at
more than 10 knots while they
were traveling (it just goes to
show that fish live in all of the
water and not just certain parts
of it).
When you hear the fish are


p in 600 feet
n of water,
understand
this: In
most of the
Middle
and Lower
Keys, you
will hit
600 feet of
water
about 5 to
6 miles
from the
Dave Navarro edge of the
reef. This
depth, 600 to 699 feet, will
maintain itself for about the
next 8 to 10 miles out.
I mention this because it is
common for someone to report
that the fish were in 640 feet of
water. That is not quite as help-
ful as you may think.
Those 640 feet can be 7
miles out as well as 15 miles
out, depending on the exact
bottom contour at that exact
spot. A distance from shore is
much more helpful for know-
ing where the fish were.
Remember that the current
changes everything from hour
to hour and fish will not always
stay in one are for long.
It's not like having a wreck
to go to with numbers and all.
All offshore fishing requires a
certain amount of hunting,
even on spots like the hump.
The fish are not always going
to be there when you are.
Tuna have also been preva-
lent, with good numbers only 8
miles out from the reef. You
have to look for the birds work-
ing fast from east to west. Get
in front of them (don't try to
come up from behind or you
will push the fish down) and
you will do well with these
blackfin.
The hump, which is the only
known bottom spot to find
tuna, has been hammered so
bad by all of the boats with the
calm seas that the only fish left
are probably wearing crash hel-
mets (I've seen beehives with
less activity). When's the last
time you caught big fish in the
middle of 30-plus boats within
a 3-acre area?
Southwest of the hump,
about 6 to 10 miles, is where
you should find some very
large tunas. Both skipjack and
blackfin will be here, moving
fast to the west but it will seem
like an endless supply. In this


mess of tuna is where you are
likely to find billfish feeding,
as well. You may also find
quite a few porpoise in the
area. There have been a few
yellowfin in this region lately,
too.
From here and working
west-southwest has always
been some of my favorite fish-
ing for a mix of tuna, wahoo,
billfish and some very large
dolphin or at least large schools
of them. It is not for those who
do not like to travel well off-
shore however. Sometimes you
may wonder if you should be
trolling with lures or cigars.
Both fresh baits as well as
lures are good right now for
dolphin. With numerous
schoolies around, I would lean
toward the lures.
Those who know me know I
use artificial baits exclusively.
But for those who don't, you
may find that you will have to
take tons of it to get through
the day.
Think about having four bal-
lyhoo out when a bunch of
small dolphin hit and have this
happen several times to you.
Bang! You are out a dozen baits
with little or no real keepers to
show for it.
That is why I tend to teach
to run at least two lures with
two baits until you find some
signs of larger fish. This way,
you won't be out of bait by
noon. Not to mention that I
have caught more big fish on
artificial lures than I ever did
on ballyhoo.
The fish are close and
numerous. Now all you have to
do is to take out a second mort-
gage on your house to get
enough money to put fuel into
the boat to go fishing.
Bayside action has been
good in the deeper waters for
snapper and grouper but the
shallows near the islands have
been so loaded with sharks,
mostly bulls, that fishing has
been a challenge.
After about 30 minutes with
the chum out, you don't have
much of a chance with any-
thing you hook before a shark
gets a hold of it. If you are into
shark fishing, this is definitely
your place to go and now.
