Floor collapses, 7 in water


No one's hurt
at Castaway
in Middle Keys
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Several Castaway patrons
almost became actual castaways
Monday after a portion of the
outside dining area at the
Marathon restaurant off 15th


Street collapsed suddenly while
they dined.
Capt. James Malmquist of
Marathon Fire Rescue said the
call came in at 8:02 p.m. for a
structural collapse of the din-
ing-room floor and that seven
people had fallen into the water
as a result.
Malmquist estimated the
damage area to be 50 feet long
by 20 feet wide, encompassing


four to six table settings that
had also fallen into water,
which he estimated was not
deeper than 4 feet.
"On our arrival, all patients
were out of the water,"
Malmquist said. "We only had
one patient requesting medical
evaluation and after being treat-
ed, he refused transport to the
hospital."
SAfter tending to the patients,

FPL coal plant,
gulf drilling
both go down
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Protectors of the Keys coral
reef received welcome news on
two environmental fronts this
month.
A new coal-powered genera-
tor planned near Moore Haven in
Central Florida was blocked by
the state Public Service Com-
mission at a June 5 session.
Glades Power Park, a $5.8 bil-
lion generator sought by Florida
Power and Light, drew fire from
several environmental groups,
including the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council.
In Washington, D.C., a move
to bring oil drilling closer to
Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast
may have been stalled by a con-
gressional committee.
"We're not out of the woods
yet but we're getting there," said
Deevon Quirolo, executive direc-
tor of the Reef Relief group.

Power plant
While statewide environmen-
tal groups hailed rejection of the
massive generator near Moore
Haven, Public Service
Commission members cited eco-
nomic costs to consumers as rea-
sons to reject the power plant.
FPL officials said the 1,960-
megawatt plant would have been
the least environmentally damag-
ing coal plant in the country, and


would cut the utility's depend-
ence on oil and natural gas.
The plant proposal sparked a
daylong meeting May 22 by the
Keys sanctuary council.
Members heard reports on how
global climate change affects the
reef, and how the plant could
contribute to the problem.
Sanctuary advisors unani-
mously passed a resolution
declaring they were "particularly
opposed to the proposed Glades



The full House

is expected to
vote on the U.S.

Department of
the Interior

budget this
week.


Power Park project since it
increases greenhouse gas emis-
sions in the Everglades with its
corresponding pollution and
effects on global climate, while
irreversibly setting our energy
policies in a direction away from
conservation, energy efficiency
and renewable resources use."
The council also passed a res-
olution calling for all government
agencies to reduce sources of
"human caused global climate
change that are causing signifi-
cant harm to the resources of the
Florida Keys National Marine


Sanctuary."
PSC members "didn't say it
was climate change or mercury or
other things that the sanctuary
council concerned about," advi-
sory panel member Chris Bergh
said, "but I'm glad we took that
action."
"It was particularly gratifying
to see Gov. [Charlie] Crist clearly
made the linkage between envi-
ronmental degradation, global
climate change and the power
plant," said Bergh.

Oil drilling
Money to fund a planned sale
of drilling rights in Lease Area
181 in the Gulf of Mexico was
stripped out by the U.S. House of
Representatives Appropriations
Committee this month.
If it survives additional action
in Congress, the move will keep
alive a 20-year moratorium on
drilling in the eastern gulf.
The full House is expected to
vote on the U.S. Department of
the Interior budget this week.
While exploration and drilling
would be hundreds of miles from
the reef, studies of gulf currents
show pollution or oil spills would
likely reach the Keys, reef,
Quirolo said.
"We have had very we some
good representation through out
Florida congressional delegation,
which has been vigorous in pur-
suing protection for the reef," she
said.
The House committee also
blocked a proposal to allow
drilling for natural gas within 25
miles of the Florida coastline.
U.S. Rep. Ileapa Ros-
Lehtinen, who represents the
Keys, urged its defeat.


Floor collapses, 7 fall in water


CASTAWAY / From 1

Malmquist said he and city
Building Official Bob Welch
conducted an evaluation of the
area of concern.
"It was determined by
myself and [Welch] that the
restaurant needed to be shut
down for the evening until we
could do a full evaluation with
engineering to make sure the
building was structurally
sound."
Because it was dark outside,
Malmquist said there was not


proper access to determine what
caused the floor to collapse.
Apparently, the outside dining
area had been constructed by
pouring concrete over an old
wooden dock.
Malmquist said Castaway
owner John Mirabella was very
cooperative with authorities and
that patrons in the restaurant's
inside and bar dining areas were
permitted to finish their meals
before it was shut down for the
night.
Mirabella said Tuesday that
he had permits in place to repair
the damage and anticipated


being allowed to open for busi-
ness after spending the day
meeting with engineers, attor-
neys and city officials.
"I'm not going to be closed
one day," Mirabella said. "I'm
going to work through this and I
need people to come down here
and keep us in business."
Malmquist said Tuesday that
Fire Rescue will conduct an
extensive fire safety inspection
"to make sure everything is safe
for.the occupants" and that the
Building Department will do
the same because the damage
was structural in nature.

Water

problems

raised

Former EPA chief
guest speaker
at Truman event
Associated Press
Water shortages and pollution
are among the top environmen-
tal challenges Americans face, a
former administrator of the
Environmental Protection
Agency said.
"Other than climate change,
the most important issue we face
is water," said Christine Todd
Whitman, who directed the EPA
from January 2001 to June 2003.
"More than 40 percent of our
streams and waterways are not
fishable, drinkable or swimma-
ble."
Whitman's remarks Friday
opened a two-day annual sym-
posium on this subtropical
island that discussed aspects of
the late Harry S Truman's tenure
as an American president. The
2007 topic, Truman's environ-
mental legacy, commemorated
the 60th anniversary of his dedi-
cation of Everglades National
Park.
Whitman said Truman raised
the awareness of the American
people on the importance of pre-
serving land and resources, like
water.
"We think our water is free
and will be here forevermore,"
Whitman said.
She added that clean water is
a big issue for the nation. She
said low water levels at Lake
Okeechobee and Florida's recent
drought were examples of water
challenges.
The symposium was head-
quartered at the Harry S Truman
Little White House Museum,
where Truman spent nearly six
months during his 1945-1953
term of office. Other presenters
included Truman grandson,
Clifton Truman Daniel, and Ken
Hechler, 92, a former Truman
aide and speechwriter.

Proposed tax reductions in Monroe County

As part of the Legislature's proposed tax cut plan, debated Tuesday, all local
governments would have to limit property tax collections next year to the amount received
this year. On top of that, depending on how heavily they taxed relative to a statewide
average over the past five years, the cities and county would have to reduce property tax
collections by another 0, 3, 5, 7 or 9 percent.

TAXES / From 1

Rubio Friday issued a joint letter
outlining highlights of proposed
legislation. Two bills were filed
mid-day Tuesday.
The proposal would require
all local governments to freeze
revenue levels for fiscal 2007-
08 at 2006-07 levels, then
require additional cuts based on
recent tax increases and popula-
tion.
Under the proposal, Monroe
County and Key West would
need to roll back revenue by 3


* lg -.962 er -). 30-5 -0
-ee. 30w9- 5112 I


percent from 2007 levels.
Marathon would need to roll
back tax revenue by 5 percent,
Islamorada and Layton by 7
percent.
"It's all based on past per-
formance," Zappulla said.
"That would cut about $3 mil-
lion for the county. That means
we should be able to levy
around $80 million."
Zappulla says it shouldn't be
too hard to find that money.
County Administrator Tom
Willi "has harped on people
submitting flat budgets," he
said. "Now we have to go back
and see what [department]
budgets can be cut."
The county's expected rev-
enue from ad valorem taxes for
the 2007 budget year is $83
million.
Legislators, during their reg-
ular session, talked about
rolling back property taxes to as
early as 2004 levels; the current
proposal would roll back taxing
rates to the 2007-08 level then
cut the additional percentage.
The proposed tax relief would
apply equally to all property
types, according to a
PowerPoint presentation given
to legislators Monday.

;-y. s briefs


Kolhage to address

al would have to go before state
voters before going into effect.
It would provide massive
exemptions for homesteaded
properties: 75 percent on the
first $200,000 of a home and an
addition 15 percent for the next
$300,000 in value.
"Homeowners already have
the most protection," Saunders
said. "Commercial properties
and second homeowners are not
going to get enough relief."
Saunders says he worries the
proposal will hit the state edu-
cation system hard.
"It- implies replacing funding
from the general revenue," he
said, "but these are the same
people who wouldn't [use gen-
eral revenue for tax cuts] last
year. I think it's part of a plan to
start cutting education fund-
ing."
Ultimately, local govern-
ment would be given the final
say in whether to implement the
cuts, according to the current
proposal. It would take a two-
thirds vote to supercede the
requirement to maintain the
2007-08 budget level, and a
unanimous vote of local com-
missions to raise taxes.
"What I'm hearing today is
guaranteed to see some opposi-
tion," Saunders said. "I think
local government will, in a lot
of cases, override it."
"The most important thing is
they let us have override capa-
bility," Zappulla said. ",The
home rule is still in there."
The letter from Rubio and
Pruitt claims $15.6 billion in
immediate tax relief, but
Saunders says there's no clear
alternative to that money.
Local government officials
have worried that mandatory
reductions in property tax col-
lections could translate to mas-
sive cuts in local services.

Fire burns nursing home


One resident
airlifted out
for serious burns
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A predawn fire Tuesday
forced the evacuation of about
70 patients from the Plantation
Key Convalescent Center.
One center resident suf-
fered serious burns and was
air-evacuated to Miami for
advanced treatment.
The fire started in that
patient's room. Initial indica-
tions suggest -the fire may
have been deliberately set,
Islamorada Fire Chief William
Wagner said. Information on
the man's identity and injuries
was not available.
The convalescent center, on
High Point Road off mile
marker 88.8, was open and
operating by mid-day
Tuesday.
"The sprinkler system did a
good job of holding the fire in


check and keeping the fire
from progressing farther,"
Wagner said.
The patient's room "was
pretty much gutted" by
flames, Wagner said, but other
damage was limited to first-
floor water damage from the
sprinklers and firefighting
efforts.
Fire units from Tavernier
and Key Largo also responded.
"The fire alarm and sprin-
klers worked as expected, and
the sprinklers kicked in," said
Scott Becht, a spokesman for
Midcare, which manages the
center. "Most of the fire and
smoke damage was limited to
one room. We've got some
water issues but we'll do
whatever needs to be done."
A specialty firm was work-
ing to clean the facility and
make repairs, Becht said.
"We'll deal with it and move
on."'
Two elderly patients report-
edly suffered minor injuries
during the evacuation, but
were released after treatment


at Mariners Hospital.
Becht said he heard good
reports on how the center's
overnight staff dealt with the
emergency.
The fire report came in
around 3 a.m. The fire was
reported out by 3:20.
"We arrived to find the staff
trying to evacuate the patients,
so we assigned people to help
with the rest of the evacuation
and to extinguish the fire,"
Wagner said. "We had to evac-
uate everyone out, check the
building, then evacuate them
back in."
Units were on scene for
approximately two hours, he
said.
"In the last couple months,
we've responded to a school
fire, a condo fire and now the
convalescent-home fire,"
Wagner said. "These were all
significant incidents that
could have resulted in serious
problems, but we made out
OK on all three. When you
consider what could have gone
wrong, that speaks well to the
training and hard work of our
firefighters."


McCoy suspects politics as motive


McCOY / From 1

ment, McCoy said. The county
turned the offer down.
Though the allegations have
to do with McCoy's behavior, the
complaint was levied against
Monroe County.
EEOC investigator Federico
Costales sent the county a letter
of determination in mid-May
saying the agency found evi-
dence that substantiated Bruno's
claims.
"I have determined that the
evidence obtained during the
investigation establishes that
there is reasonable cause to
believe that a violation of the
statute occurred," Costales
wrote.
The county was given 15 days
to negotiate a settlement or
potentially see the case go to
court. Assistant County Attorney
Bob Shillinger said the letter was
aimed solely at pushing for a
financial settlement.
McCoy said he was frustrated
at the brevity of his interview
with the investigator.


McCOY


"They
spent about
two minutes
questioning
me," he said.
McCoy
said stories he
shared with
Bruno were
skewed by the
time he was


questioned.
Bruno worked for McCoy for
close to two years. During her
tenure, she appeared happy with
the work environment, McCoy
said.
"For two years she was won-
derful," he said. "She brought me
gifts, she brought gifts for my
grandchildren. Then on her last
day, I was kidding her about her
additions to a letter and she went
ballistic. She just took her hand-
bag and left."
He said she occasionally
urged him to go dancing together
or to a movie, though he says it
never happened.
"I only saw her twice outside
of the office," he said. "Once we
had a work lunch. The other time


we were both at a political rally"
at Horace O'Bryant Middle
School.
McCoy said he suspects polit-
ical motives behind the charges.
He said he thinks someone may
be influencing Bruno, though he
says he's hesitant to comment on
his suspicions, preferring to hold
out and see what might come out
in court.
In his letter to the county,
Costales wrote Bruno would be
advised of the "court enforce-
ment alternatives available to
aggrieved persons and the com-

"4nts, be aw



The Internet news cycle Tuesday was dominated by horrific
reports out of Dallas about a cheap drug that's killed dozens of
teens.
Known on the street as cheese heroin, it's a blend of Mexican
heroin and over-the-counter drugs containing diphenhydramine,
an antihistamine found in products such as Tylenol PM.
A Dallas police detective described this "deadly brew" to an
Associated Press reporter as "a double whammy you're getting
two downers at once."
Slowing down the heart can lead to death and this drug cock-
tail has proven very deadly indeed.
And at $2 per hit, it's the kind of drug that lends itself to exper-
imentation by younger kids, which is a major concern raised by
the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. A drug that's invaded
middle schools in Dallas can just as easily migrate far and wide.
Steve Robertson, a special agent with the DEA in Washington,
said authorities are closely monitoring the situation, trying to pre-
vent it from spreading to other areas of the country.
The ease of communication via the Internet and cell phones,
Robertson said, allows a drug trend to spread rapidly across the
country.
"We are concerned about any drug trend that is new because we
want to stop it," he added.
We hope Keys parents stay alert to this latest threat and work
closely with law enforcement to prevent it from gaining a toehold
here.


On the up and up

Conspiracy theories. are hard to shake.
The one about an insider deal for ferry service to Pigeon Key
fits the bill.
Only it turns out that Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas has not
shown any signs of bidding on a contract to provide ferry service
while the historic old Seven Mile Bridge is rebuilt by the state
Department of Transportation.
As reported in today's Keynoter, three from the initial round of
bidding have picked up bid packets, which is usually a good sign
they're still interested. A fourth also picked one up.
For the thousands of locals and visitors who enjoy the bridge
and the trip to Pigeon Key, a reliable ferry could prove a godsend,
especially in Marathon, where Pigeon Key and its links to the
Flagler railroad era serve as sustainable, historic tourism attrac-
tions.
The bid seeks a vendor that can provide ferry service starting
Aug. 1 and extending through June 30, 2008. August is just
around the corer. Let's hope the county's second round of bid-
ding turns up a reliable winner. We've got a lot riding on this.

EDITOR:
To respond to the letter from Mr. Henry
Bemazani concerning oil dripping spills and
I'm not at all an environmentalist.
Yes, I agree that there is much oil to be har-
vested from the gulf region, and yes the price of
gasoline is surly a result of the lack of refineries,
but all it takes is one small mistake, one insignifi-
cant spill, one oversight, and the economy of
Florida is finished, done, that's all folks.
In 1986, I walked along the seemingly beauti-
ful beaches of central Morocco. They looked pris-
tine, lovely white and inviting, but as soon as you


set foot in the white sands, your feet were covered
with a gooey tar beneath the surface. The experi-
ence was as if my wife and I were in a swamp.
One spill and you're finished, the party is over.
Nobody will come and your economy will dive
and die forever. That is all, folks.
What is the price you're willing to pay to
drive? Are you a gambling man or a sensible
man? You tell me, because history has shown
time again that if it can go wrong, it will. And is
that worth it?

Foundation gives a helping hand up


EDITOR:
I wanted to write this letter to tell you and your
readers about a fantastic organization set up here
in the Marathon area to serve those in need.
I have never known true hunger in my life.
Faced with no money, no food and no prospects,
my only source of income was my disability check
from Social Security. The check was paying my
rent, but just barely (I owe back rent and my secu-
rity deposit) and the little left over was used for
medical bills and prescriptions.
I was given a name, Ms. Arlene Wallace at
Coldwell Banker, and told she could help. I had
gone over a week with no food. I have diabetes, so
this is very dangerous. The next morning I was sit-
ting with Ms. Wallace telling her everything that
had happened to get me to this point.
She is a wonderful woman with boundless
enthusiasm, and a heart as big as the Atlantic.
At times, I was shaking. At other times, tearing
up, but she kept telling me that it was OK and
went on to describe the Coldwell Banker Schmitt
Charitable Foundation, its mission, and what they
could do to help me.
The foundation was formed through the gener-
ous hearts of the Coldwell Banker real estate
agents, its affiliates and business partners. Its mis-

Don't dump on Marathon
EDITOR:
It has come to my attention that the city of
Marathon is considering using the events field
as a dump site in the event of a hurricane this
year. I cannot believe that what I am hearing is
accurate and hope that common sense prevails
and an alternative location is found.
From the beginning, this events field has
been the source of conflict between the city and
homeowners beginning with the intended use of
the events field for Federal Emergency
Management Agency trailers. We would hope
Sthe City Council would try to improve and
maintain the appearance of Marathon rather
than contribute to any negatively perceived
images that the city already has.
I am sure the council can collectively come
up with an alternate solution that would not
interfere with our city's image. We are all trying
to work together to clean up this town, not con-
tribute to its disarray.

sion is "Moving Forward By Giving Back."
Our nation has a huge problem. If you are rich,
you don't need anyone. If you are poor, there are
countless government agencies that step in and
help. But if you fall into that middle class, that
huge gray area, if you had a good job, your retire-
ment check or your Social Decurity check is just a
little too big to get help, but far too small to live,
then you fall through the cracks and are stepped
over.
If not for this great lady who chairs a fantastic
foundation, I would have been one of those falling
through the cracks in our society. Instead, I was
given a hand up.
They put me in touch with KAIR (Keys Area
Interdenominational Resourcs), a food bank and
help organization. They put together six bags of
groceries and within hours, I was eating.
I was given a phone number to arrange trans-
portation when needed to the doctor or food shop-
ping, etc. And here is the best. That afternoon, the
board met and approved a $900 check to pay my
back rent, and a $300 check for doctor bills, pre-
scriptions and non-food items. Is that fantastic?
SThey never once made me feel inferior.
Instead, they gave me back my dignity.
If you are faced with a similar situation, please
don't wait for the cupboard to go bare. Raise your
hand and ask for help. Someone will grab on and
give you a good pull up. Who knows, maybe in
time that someone may be me.

Keys Opinion


Wednesday, June 13, 2007 7


Keep City Manager
EDITOR:
In recent weeks the Keynoter ran a
story quoting Marathon council mem-
bers as not being pleased with City
Manager Mike Puto. The reasons for
their dissatisfaction seem to revolve
around the belief that their elections
were, in fact, the public's mandate for a
change, that change supposedly to
begin with the replacement of the city
manager. The line of reasoning, and the
decision-making process used to get to
this conclusion, is terribly flawed.
Marathon's new method of electing
its officials by throwing them all in a
pot and giving X number of votes to
each voter can never result in a man-
date. Only head-to-head political com-
petition for clearly defined seats,
where fully informed voters make
choices between ideological beliefs
and promises made by candidates, can
result in a mandate. It's the reason we
are still at war in Iraq.
I don't recall any candidate in the
past election running on a stance that.
included terminating the city manager.
Fact is, I don't recall much substance
at all in the latest round. I might be
able to stretch and argue that if there
were an underlying issue, it may have
been that of change. But exactly what


Puto on board
that change was supposed to be was ill
defined at best.
To begin that promised change
process by sending home one of this
city's greatest assets is a blunder
beyond compare. There is not a more
capable or competent individual to
implement the policies and see to the
general safety and welfare of this
town's citizens and businesses than
Mike Puto. To lose him based on a
flawed decisioning process would be
tragic.
I openly ask the council members
of Marathon to go out to the voters of
our town and ask them personally if
this is the change they contemplated
when they elected you. This is no dif-
ferent than reading your council pack-
ets or doing research on an upcoming
item for vote.
I travel in many different circles
here in town with my involvement in
various activities and businesses. The
support for Mike Puto among our citi-
zenry is overwhelming. There are
many other areas where change is
needed in our town. Mike Puto should
be the changer, not the change.

Relay for Life team steps up big


EDITOR:
I would like to thank all my team
members from the Relay for Life. Our
team was the Fire Brigade. What an
awesome team we had.
I formed this team due to a very
personal issue with cancer that touched
my family this year. Relay was quite
the experience. The team was com-
posed of friends and family members.
I want to thank Ardie and Dana
Banks, Mary and Gail Schindler,
Jennifer and Jason Cadwell, Barbara
and Dave Cowen, Nancy and Mike
Wikert, Susan Hover, Cindy
Mooneyham, Sandy Riegor, Pink
Gigseg, Livy Stone and Trey Martin.
Our team helped raise donations by
yard sales, baked goods and just ask-


ing for donations. I could not have
done it without their continual encour-
agement. We had family members in
Richmond that also helped raise funds
for our team. Our team raised more
than $4,000 for the American Cancer.
Society.
I also want to thank Charlotte
Quinn for doing an awesome job along
with all the other committee members.
Relay for Life was such a success due
to all their hard work. All the teams
should be commended for all their
enthusiasm for wanting to help stamp
out cancer. Maybe we will see it hap-
pen in our lifetime due to all our con-
tributions.

Snakes are good for environment


EDITOR:
In response to a previous letter,
how wonderful it would be if in fact
there are some snakes on Key Colony
Beach. The snakes would likely be
black racers, rat snakes or corn snakes,


all of which eat mice, rats, palmetto
bugs and roaches and are completely
harmless to humans.

Let nature be nature


EDITOR:
Before she starts killing them off,
letter write Nadine Baugher might
want to consider why there has been
an increase in the adult population of
snakes in her neighborhood. No animal


thrives in the wild without an abundant
food supply. The staple of a snake's
diet is mice and rats. Trying to control
nature will bite you every time.

We wanted less spending,


now tough choices arrive


Monroe County government doesn't
need to know the outcome of the
Legislature's special session on property
taxes, which started Tuesday, to know
money for the 2007-08 fiscal year is
going to be tight.
That's why Sheriff Rick Roth has craft-
ed a proposed flat budget of $43 million
(which includes money from Marathon
and Islamorada for policing those cities)
that will cost some jobs, equipment and
training.
In fact, in the 13 years I've known
Roth, this will be the first time he isn't in
front of the County Commission at a
budget presentation like a videotape,
repeating the same thing he
repeats every year: I need
more money to retain staff.
It got to be so routine, he
really could have just pulled
out a recording from previous
years' budget workshops.
His agency isn't the only
one recognizing there is no
property-tax lottery from
higher land assessments this A &
year. The county Human
Services Advisory Board is
also keeping its 2007-08
funding flat, at $2.3 million. Larry
Some of the nonprofits it y
funds will get more money Keynot
this year, some less. But the
overall pot will not grow.
Roth and the services board have set
the standard, then, for this budget season,
and it will be pretty difficult for other
county departments as well as the
municipalities to offer up fat budgets
to residents this year.
Last year, the mantra among folks
countywide was cut spending. This year,
the taxing agencies will be forced to do
so.
Now it will be interesting to see if the
same people demanding less spending
last year can truly do without what will
be cut this year.

his team's outlook for the rest of the sea-

Stranded deaf dolphin gives birth


Castaway's calf
appears healthy,
officials say
A stranded deaf Atlantic bot-
tlenose dolphin delivered her calf
Monday- afternoon at the Marine
Mammal Conservancy in Key
Largo.
The calf is about 42 inches
long and weighs about 35
pounds, according to officials at






MARATHON PUBLIC
SHOPPING CENTER

BAMBOO CAY

for FATHER'S DflY!


the Marine Mammal
Conservancy.
"The calf looks great," MMC
President Robert Lingenfelser
said. "It's swimming real well
and breathing normally."
The calf's mother, named
Castaway, has been vocalizing to
the calf, Lingenfelser said, and
the baby has answered back.
But Lingenfelser said he is
certain that Castaway cannot
process the calf's return sounds.
,"Castaway's vocalizations are
not normal," Lingenfelser said.
"She speaks in a monotone, simi-
lar to the way that people who
cannot hear speak."
Because Castaway can't hear,
MMC officials installed a dolphin
"chat line" of sorts, electronically
connecting Castaway's habitat
with a lagoon at Dolphins Plus, a
research and interactive educa-
tional facility a few miles down
the road.
Underwater speakers and


microphones were installed at
both locations and connected via
phone lines donated by AT&T
Florida.
Officials hope the. calf, which
has yet to be named, will develop
communications' skills by
"speaking" to dolphins at
Dolphins Plus when the system is
fully turned on in the future.


Both Castaway and her calf
are to remain at the conservancy
for at least six months, before
being relocated to a more perma-
nent facility.. Castaway cannot be
released because a dolphin needs
to hear to utilize echo localiza-
tion, or dolphin sonar, in order to
survive.
The calf is not a candidate for


release either, Lingenfesler said,
because the first few months of a
dolphin's development in the
wild is the most critical time peri-
od for it to learn about self-
preservation.
Castaway stranded off Vero
Beach in November and was
eventually transported to the
Keys.


Hendrick files another appeal


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Former Monroe County
Attorney Jim Hendrick Monday
on filed an additional appeal to a
jury ruling that found him guilty
of obstructing justice, conspiracy
and witness tampering.
On June 5, U.S. Attorney
Alexander Acosta filed an appeal
opposing Hendrick's sentence of
probation Acosta's office had
sought prison time.
A federal 'jury convicted
Hendrick on four federal counts
in February.
The charges stemmed from an
investigation linking Hendrick to
former County Commissioner
Jack London, who accepted a
payment to expedite a Middle
Keys real estate development
when he was on the commission
in 1997.
London initially pleaded not -

guilty to three counts of lying to
federal investigators and one of
filing a false tax return for failing.
to report the $29,000 bribe to the
Internal Revenue Service.
London later pleaded guilty to
the false-return charge and was
facing three years in prison, and
had agreed to testify against
Hendrick. But London died last
fall, before he could testify at
Hendrick's trial.
According to Hendrick, the
government challenge to his sen-
tence opens the legal door for this
additional appeal of his convic-
tion.
Hendrick attorney Edward
Shohat has already filed two
other motions challenging the
conviction.
."We've take the opportunity
to appeal the conviction,"
Hendrick told the Keynoter
Tuesday, "without abandoning
the motions that are still out
there."
Hendrick seems unruffled by
the government's challenge to his
sentence.
"We don't think the circum-
stances come anywhere close" to


other cases cited by Acosta, he
said, "where the appellate courts
have reversed. Those have gener-
ally been cases involving great
public harm."
Hendrick was charged with
advising London and political
consultant Randal Hilliard,
through whom the money went,
to evade questions by a grand
jury during the bribery probe; He
was also indicted for serving as a
conduit between London and
Hilliard.
Hilliard, after secretly record-
ing numerous conversations with
Hendrick during the investiga-
tion, was granted immunity and
testified against Hendrick.
The developer in the deal was
Marvin Rappaport. He was not
charged because the statute of
limitations on bribery had
expired.
Under terms of Hendrick's
probation, he must remain under
supervision for five years. He is
required to pay a $50,000 fine
and perform 2,500 hours of com-
munity service. He must be
employed for the duration of his
probation, though he cannot con-
sult, lobby or work for anyone in
government.

Budget chief decides
to stay with county

Monroe County Budget
Director Sal Zappulla said
Tuesday he will not quit his job
after all.
"At the urging of the County
Commission and the county
clerk, I've decided not to turn in
my resignation," Zappulla said.
Zappulla notified the commis-
sioners last week that he was
considering resigning after being
told he would not receive a


requested raise. He said his
$92,000 annually is not in align-
ment with salaries of newly hired
department directors who are
starting at more than $100,000
annually.
"It was not about the money per
se," Zappulla said after reaching
his decision. "It's about the coun-
ty's spending too much and not
watching for parity in salaries."
Zappulla has worked for the
county nine years and is the chief
architect in the county's spending
plan, which amounts to $373 mil-
lion this year.

4 interested in ferry service


It's the second

round following

earlier rejections
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Despite widespread belief that
Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas
is the favored provider of ferry
service to Pigeon Key, the com-
pany has yet to pick up a county
bid package for the service.
Monroe County issued a sec-
ond bid request June 2 seeking a
temporary transportation service
to the historic island just west of
Marathon. On March 21, the
county opened five bids from
local vendors, all of which were
rejected.
So far, three of the original
bidders Quality Boat Rentals,

Building and equipping a
new Lower Matecumbe Key fire
station will cost about 42 per-
cent over original estimates,
Islamorada Village Council
members will hear Thursday.
"The total project .costs
(turnkey) would be estimated at
$1,447,274...," according to a
staff report. "The total prelimi-
nary cost of the project is esti-
mated to be higher than the proj-
ect budget by approximately
$427,835."
Village Manager Gary Word
will ask the council, meeting in
regular session at 5:30 p.m., to
approve the higher cost estimate
so planning work can proceed.
Council members pledged
support for the Lower
Matecumbe fire-and-ambulance
station during 2003 budget ses-
sions, when island residents
turned out to complain about
longer response times and high-
er insurance costs. Rescue units
had to travel up to 12 miles from
Upper Matecumbe Key to reach
some homes.
A temporary fire-rescue facil-
ity was established in 2004 in
rented space on Gulfview Drive.
A one-year lease renewal of
$23,400 annually for that-site


Swim and Snorkel have
picked up bid packets, a move
that indicates a likelihood they
will bid again. Coral Marine
Construction Inc. has also picked
up a bid packet.
The bid calls for beginning
service Aug. 1, extending
through June 30, 2008, a time-
frame that would allow the
Florida Department of
Transportation to reconstruct the
fast-failing Marathon end of the
old Seven Mile Bridge. ,
It's been eight months since
DOT warned the County
Commission that the bridge's
closure is imminent, and officials
say it could happen any day.
The agency committed
$750,000 to be spread over three
years so people can access the
island, home to the Pigeon Key
Foundation, a historic and educa-


also is, on the council's Thursday
agenda.
Progress toward building a
permanent Lower Matecumbe
station was stalled when an
expected land donation fell
through. Islamorada purchased a
site at White Marlin Drive and
U.S. 1 in January 2005.
Word said Islamorada can
fund the higher station costs
with borrowed money originally
slated for a municipal center to
serve as Village Hall. Council
members last month indefinitely
delayed the municipal center in
favor of marina improvements
and a community-use center at
Founders Park.
In a related issue, Word will
ask council members to consider
building a standalone fire station
on Plantation Key. Original
plans called for the island's fire
station to be incorporated into
the now-delayed municipal cen-
ter.
Council members also will
decide whether to sign the U.S.
Mayors Climate Protection
Agreement, which says conser-
vation measures should be a pri-
ority in local decision-making.
The meeting takes place at
the Islamorada Fire Station at
mile marker 81.8.


tional facility.
Rumors that county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro was hoping to
get Cay Clubs to bid arose after
Di Gennaro said the island ought
to be more developed for
tourists. Cay Clubs operates the
nearby Marathon Boatyard and
Marina.
"I love that bridge, but there
should be, in my opinion, more
activity out there," he told the
Keynoter in March. "I'd love to
see that place flourish. Go down
there, buy T-shirts, whatever."
Cay Clubs' exponential
expansion, however, has slowed
since earlier this year.
In May, the Clearwater-based
company reorganized, laying off
about 80 of its 500-plus employ-
ees in the county. In April, the
company walked away from a
$7.4 million deal with the School
District in which Cay Clubs had
offered to build affordable hous-
ing in Marathon.
The county seeks a ferry
provider th-ataccording to the
bid request, can transport up to
22 passengers every 90 minutes
as well as provide passage for-
larger groups for special events.

which Geotis called "a mnainte-

replaced with a more compact,
single-restroom facility.
Bidding for the project closes
July 20 and Geotis said he antici-
pates it will be completed within
six months after the contract is
awarded.
Geotis expects the cost to be
under $1 million, much of which
he said would be paid back
through a Federal Emergency
Management Agency restoration
fund.


The city also issued an invita-
tion to bid on a project to con-
struct a new 1,843-square-foot
bath and laundry facility across
U.S. 1 at the City of Marathon
Marina, for use by marina cus-
tomers and residents.
"It'll have a centralized men's
and ladies' room with four toilets
each and 12 showers, [each] with
a toilet," Geotis said.
Geotis added the new laundry
facility would most likely have
six washers and six dryers.
The project should be com-


pleted along the same time frame
as the ramp and Geotis estimated
'it would cost roughly $430,000.
There are two other public
boat ramps in Marathon. The city
owns the one at Dodge Lake
behind Florida Keys Marathon
Airport, and it was just recently
refurbished.
The state Department of
Transportation owns the one next
to the former Quay restaurant at
mile marker 54 bayside, and it's
been sitting in disrepair for years.


Alleged killer wants compensation


He files complaint
after fight at
the county jail
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Accused murderer Johnny
Ray Holt is due before Judge
Wayne Miller at 8:34 a.m.
Tuesday to face a misdemeanor
battery charge from a jailhouse
fight May 10 against a witness
against him, a fight that prompt-
ed him to file a civil complaint
against Monroe County Sheriff
Rick Roth, the Monroe County
Detention Center and a dozen
employees.


Holt wants to be "compensat-
ed for the mental anguish" he
says he endured after beating
Michael Sox, a major witness
against Holt, in the face.
The 25-year-old Holt crossed
paths with, Sox, a 39-year-old
homeless man, in the Stock Island
jail's Alpha Unit last month.
Deputies say Holt punched Sox
several times, subsequently filing
the complaint on May 23, stating
his "fears and concerns" were
ignored and ridiculed.
"I was laughed at by Sgt.
[Steven] Katz for my fears,"
Holt wrote. "And no action was
taken by Sgt. Katz or Shift
Lieutenant Age."


"We have not been served
with [the lawsuit] yet, so I don't
even know if it exists," Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin wrote in an e-mail.
Holt was arrested in March
2006 for the murder of 63-year-
old Rodger Keller, a botanist for
the Monroe Association of
Retarded Citizens Plant Store.
His trial on that charge is set for
8:30 a.m. July 23 before Miller.
A pretrial conference is set for
June 29 at 1:30 p.m.
Sox, who was an acquain-
tance of Keller, is the one who
told police he saw Holt drive off
in Keller's car. Sox's report,
which was lodged several days
after Keller's killing, initiated
the investigation that led to
Holt's arrest.
Sox was later jailed for vio-
lating probation on a larceny
conviction. Herrin has said Sox
might have been placed in the
Alpha Unit, a high-security cell-
block, for disciplinary measures.
"It just so happened that Holt
was out in the recreation area
when Sox came back in," Herrin
said last month.
Holt hand-wrote in the com-
plaint that he told several deten-
tion employees, including Katz,
that he was concerned for his
well-being and did not want to
be in proximity to Sox.
According to Holt, because
the facility's lack of protection
from a known "enemy,' he was \
forced to defend himself.
In addition to being compen-
sated for emotional damage after
he punched Sox, Holt asked
"that the court dismiss the defen-
dants of their duties."
Holt's complaint against the
sheriff was filed in U.S. District
Court.

Redevelopment project reemerges.


Banana-Bay
and Fairfield
get extension
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The reemergence of a resolu-
tion that first passed in August
2006 to redevelop the Banana
Bay Resort and Fairfield Inn
Suites on North Roosevelt
Boulevard in Key West aroused
concerns among some residents
of adjoining Hilton Haven Drive
over a potential increase in traffic
on the private road.
"That's a busy road to start
with," Hilton Haven resident Ed
Grantham said of the ingress and
egress.
Grantham and his wife, Mimi,
spoke out against the project's
plans at the June 5 City.
Commission meeting. "We have
a problem now trying to get out
of there. That's my only issue."
Grantham said'he was out of


town when the resolution was
first voted on in August 2006,
and that Ocean Properties of
Delray Beach, spearheading the
redevelopment, did not offer to
sit down and talk with them.
Ginny Stones, representing
Ocean Properties, said the com-
pany spoke with all of the resi-
dents last year before the resolu-
tion passed.
According to Grantham, that
was "a flat lie. They never had a
meeting until we complained
about it. They never sat down
with us they never discussed
anything with us."
Ocean Properties, which owns
both Banana Bay and the
Fairfield Suites on the Roosevelt
waterfront, asked the city for a
one-year extension on the project
as the deadline for commence-
ment is Aug. 1 motivation for
the resolution's reappearance at
the June 5 commission meeting.
The commission voted in
favor of the extension with the


exception of Commissioner Dan
Kolhage.
Ocean Properties Vice
President Tom McMurrian said
the company bought both
Banana Bay and the waterfront
section of the Fairfield Inn; the
hotel on the other side of North
Roosevelt is owned by White
Lodging Association of Indiana.
"Back when we were a big
employer, we were trying to find
some ways that we help our
employees," McMurrian said.
"Fairfield and Banana became
available, we saw an opportunity
to buy it and recoup our money
so our employees can stay there."
The property was purchased
in October 2005. White Lodging
kept a parking easement on the
waterfront side of Roosevelt.
Chris Majchrowicz, general
manager of the Fairfield section
still owned by White Lodging,
said the fear of running out of
parking spaces for hotel guests
prompted the company to seize
the parking property that legally
belongs to them.


"All that happened was that
we were worried about over-
flowing parking," Majchrowicz
said.
As a result of the earmarked
parking property, the original
plans for the area 11 transient
units, 20 market-rate apartments
and 34 affordable-housing units
- were altered, decreasing the
amount of affordable housing
units to 28.
Eighteen of the already exist-
ing units on the Fairfield proper-

ty will remain but be converted
to affordable housing. The other
10 must be constructed,
McMurrian said.
Because of this and the sud-
den change in economy,
McMurrian said Ocean
Properties had "to change our
plans. We had to go through the
city and have them look at
them."
This is why the project need-
ed the extension, Stones said.

Policing forum


is Thursday


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Key West Police
Department will host an open
forum at the Roosevelt Sands
Nutrition Center Thursday at 6
p.m. to hear concerns, sugges-
tions and feedback from resi-
dents of the Bahama Village
neighborhood.
"These people are really
looking out for their communi-
ty," police spokeswoman
Christie Phillips said. "The
more people take action, the
more crime will decrease."
Guest speaker will be
Lawanna Tynes, a representative
from the state Department of
Juvenile Justice, who will discuss
operations of her department.
Lt. Kathleen Ream, head of
the department's Division of
Community Affairs, will host
the forum that all Key West res-
idents are invited to attend. The
focus will be Bahama Village -
exactly what crimes are occur-
ring, what members of the com-
munity would like to see
changed or improved, and how
to best utilize the skills of the
city's 98 sworn police officers.
Such meetings are usually
held on a monthly basis in loca-
tions such as Roosevelt Gardens,
Bahama Village and, before
long, New Town, Ream said.
"Sometimes the issues are
police related and often times
they are not but we try to- coor-
dinate with the necessary
departments to address their

concerns and find solutions,"
Ream told the Keynoter.
District 6 Commissioner
Clayton Lopez said Bahama
Village has a high amount of
street drug deals but other
crimes such as robberies and
burglaries are more concentrat-
ed in other areas of the island.
As for the community-polic-
ing program, Lopez "knows it
was formed to improve the rela-
tionship with the community."
Lopez also said his district is
the only one with an officer paid
by tax increment financing to
patrol solely in Bahama Village.
An officer is always expected to
have a presence in the commu-
nity, Lopez said. But he said he
doesn't always notice a police
presence when he's checking up
on his district.
Residents "have complained
to me," Lopez said. "Overall,
community policing is working,
but it has a lot of holes that need
plugging."
"If [the officers] make an
arrest, they are out of the area
for an extended amount of
time," Ream said. Officers must
write their affidavits and bring
the offender to jail, she added.
Ream said an advantage for
police and prosecutors in Key
West is that most drug offenses
occur within a 1,000-foot radius
of a church or school, making
the charges more severe.
To get involved, call Officer
Steve Torrence at 809-1007.

Wyndham hotels fees probed


Attorney general
says some guests
entitled to refund

Wyndham hotels are under the
scrutiny of Florida Attorney
General Bill McCollum, who
issued a consumer advisory June
6 encouraging people who
believe they were victimized by
potentially unfair business prac-
tices to speak up.
The advisory points to certain


hotels run by Wyndham
International Inc., including three
in the Keys, and states that some
may be eligible to file claims for
restitution.
"Consumers who may have
paid undisclosed automatic sur-
charges improperly imposed by
the hotels should file reimburse-
ment claims with the company
before the end of October," the
report states.
McCollum reports the


Wyndham case was resolved in
July 2006 when the Attorney
General's Office reached a $2.3-
million settlement over the undis-
closed automatic surcharges at
hotels run by Wyndham. The
most significant feature of this
settlement requires the company
that purchased the Wyndham
chain last August to implement
nationwide the new business
practices described in the settle-
ment even though the Attorney

arrived in Marathon the first
three months of service, while

Keeping it cool

When the summer temps boil, take

By RYAN McCARTHY

With summertime finally
upon us, the Keys will be filled
with tourists and local families
alike hoping to take
advantage of the
beautiful
weather. But

exhaustion may progress into
heat stroke. If heat exhaustion
is suspected, the following are
cooling measures that may be
effective: drinking cool, non-
alcoholic beverages; resting in
an air-conditioned environ-
ment; cool showers; and per-
haps most importantly, pre-
venting sunburn, which affects
the body's ability to dissipate
heat.
Another important thing to
keep in mind is to-be sure to
drink plenty of fluids, especial-
ly water, even if you don't feel .' -
thirsty. Staying out of direct '
sunlight, wearing light-col- 4
ored, loose-fitting clothes and
limiting physical activity are a
few ways to avoid dehydration.
As far as your pets-are con-
cerned, Doug Mader, owner of


the Marathon Veterinary
Hospital, says the most impor-
tant thing to remember is to
keep them out of cars or any
other kind of vehicle. Mader
points out it is illegal in
Monroe County to do keep
your pet in your vehicle.
A common mistake

Filipowicz, will be one of two
new cross-country coaches for the
Conchs this fall.
Debra Bertolini will take over
the girls' team for Stacie
Bouchard, who coached the past

White, 37, an accountant who

Conch Mira recalls glory days


Key West star
looks back on
football, life
By GREG COTE
McClatchy Newspapers

The game was half a lifetime
ago, on Dec. 1, 1962.
Miami Hurricanes 'trail late,
and Florida Field in Gainesville
is a-howl with noise. The
University of Miami's quarter-


back rolls out, gets his arm
pinned by a Gators defender, but
somehow manages to maneuver
the football to his non-throwing
left hand and sort of shot-puts
the ball into the end zone.
"That pass was about 10
yards end-over-end, back then,"
Key West native George Mira Sr.
recalled, chuckling. "Of course,
over time it became a 20-yard
spiral!".
Too bad ESPN's


SportsCenter didn't exist. The
play would have been all over it.
Mira had been nicknamed
"The Matador" by then-Miami
Herald sportswriter Luther
Evans for his elusiveness, but
this time it was his desperation
touchdown from the bull's grasp
that won for the Hurricanes, 17-
15, and helped form a collegiate
legend. The newspaper called it
a "MIRAcle."
Mira would be named a two-

Retired life is full for Mira


MIRA / From 19

time All-American and the first
star quarterback in Miami history
- therefore, to many in those pre-
Dolphins days, perhaps South
Florida's first sports star, period
- and become enduring, and
warmly held.
According to the Florida High
School Athletic Association -
which inducted Mira into its Hall
of Fame in 2005 Mira played
basketball and baseball for Key
West High School from 1956 to
1960.
As quarterback for the Conchs,
he was captain of the All-State
team and led the team to a 21-8-1
record during his three varsity
years. Mira also helped the base-
ball team to state championships
in 1958 and 1959, pitching two
consecutive no-hitters in one state
tournament.
A journeyman seven-year NFL
career followed college (ending
with the Dolphins in 1971) as a
seldom-deployed backup. He
fared better on the smaller stages
of the short-lived WFL and in
Canada.
"I was well-traveled," he says.
"Then I kind of faded away."
Not away, of course. Just out of
the headlines. The cheering stops,
the lights dim and our heroes dis-
appear from view. But they go on.
Mira is 65 now. He lives with
his second wife, of 33 years,


Nancy, in a home west of Perrine,
at the edge of The Redlands in
south Miami-Dade.
Almost all of his UM memora-
bilia, including his retired No.10
jersey, got obliterated by a hurri-
cane.
"Andrew devastated me," he
said.
Yet life is good for the Key
West native. Life is full. He plays
golf to an 8-handicap, mostly at
Keys Gate and The Redland,
where his annual tournament rais-
es money for underprivileged
Homestead and Florida City kids.
Mira is proud- of his son,
George Jr., a 1980s UM line-
backer, now 41 and a Miami-
Dade firefighter/paramedic rising
in the county ranks.
And of a younger son, Jason,
who works in the family business,
George Mira's Native Conch,


manufacturing batter for conch
fritters.
A younger brother, Joe (anoth-
er ex-Cane), is an assistant foot-
ball coach and teacher at Miami
Westminster Christian after many
years as head coach at Miami
Palmetto, Miami Krop and South
Miami.
For Mira Sr., some 45 years
later, his time as a Hurricane
remains a life's centerpiece happi-
ly relived once a year when he and
a few dozen old teammates attend
one Miami home game together.
"I enjoyed it tremendously.
That was a big highlight in my
career," he said.
As you'd expect, Mira laments

Former star Miami linebacker to participate

to teach football skills and funda-
mentals not only to the kids in the
leagues, but to the coaches as
well," said Twan Russell, a former
star linebacker with the University
of Miami who went on to play


eight years in the NFL, including
time spent with the Dolphins.
For more, contact Youth Sports
Manager Jose Regalado at (305)

Marathon clinic
The Marathon Youth Club and


Florida Keys Electric Cooperative
are staging their fourth annual
football camp in July at the
Marathon Community Park.
Instructors expected to return
include Tony Bryant, a Marathon
High School graduate who played
seven years in the NFL with the
Raiders, Saints and Rams; and


Joey Struyf, also a Dolphin gradu-
ate who played tight end and full-
back at Florida International
University. Others also are expect-
ed.
The football camp is at the
Community Park July 11, 12 and
13 from 9 a.m. to noon each day.
Call John Kometti at 522-0066
for more information.


'The kids will have a lot of fun'


COACH /From 19

the last half mile of races," he
said. "Everything will be geared
toward the last half mile."
Last year's Conch boys' team,
under Filipowicz, finished 10th in
the Region 4-2A meet and failed
to qualify a runner for the state
finals. Returning from that team
will be sophomore-to-be Zach
Harden, the Conchs' second-best


runner last season.
Filipowicz, who coached one
year, said his teacher's contract
-was not renewed. He said he
hopes to continue coaching in
central Florida.
Bertolini, 43, a teacher at the
high school, was an assistant
coach under Bouchard three years
ago and is a familiar local runner
who finished third in last winter's
Southernmost Runners' Grand
Prix standings.


The new coach will inherit a
team that returns two of its top
runners, senior-to-be Tyler
Buckheim and junior Olivia Kent.
MacKenzie said -he was
pleased with the appointments,
which were made by new athletic
director Peter Fraga. "I'm very
excited about the two of them,"
MacKenzie said. "They're very
enthusiastic, they're good runners
and the kids will have a lot of fun
being with them."

Contests keep Keys busy


And there are
more coming
this weekend

Hot, hot, hot!
That's the tournament sched-
ule and not necessarily the fish-
ing bite. There were four tourna-
ments over the past week and
more are scheduled this coming
weekend. Choices, choices.
Monday through Friday last
week pit fly fisherman aiming at
tarpon in the 33rd annual Don
Hawley Invitational Tarpon
Tournament in which 25 anglers
released 69 tarpon, 66 in the 12-
pound tippet class and three in
the 16-pound class.
This test of endurance started
each morning at 5:45 a.m. with
some teams running from the
Lorelei Restaurant at mile mark-
er 82 all the way to Sugarloaf
Key around mile marker 20.
Friday afternoon after five
days of a tough bite, one angler,.
David Dalu of Charleston, S.C.,
was named grand champion. He
was guided by Capt. Scott
Collins of Marathon by catching
and releasing 13 tarpon.
Dalu was also part of the
team champion, the Poon
Busters, joining Carlos Duncan
of Houston, Jim Holland Jr. of
Seattle, Bert Scherb of Chicago
and Peter Reddin of Ellison Bay,
Wis. The team released 16 tar-
pon altogether.


The
Florida
-r --F, K e y s
Coim -
Smunity
-. Classic, in'
g;, ,; its third
year, had a
m .^ \ n i c e
turnout
searching
for dol-
phin,
S wahoo and
Cal Sutphin tuna.
This
event, which had weigh stations
up and down the Keys, benefit-
ed Veterans Haven, a nonprofit
trying to help Keys military vet-
erans in need. It also was part of
a free veterans and active-mili-
tary free fishing day in which
close to 200 men and women
took advantage last Tuesday.
The Classic had 70 anglers
competing for top honors and
no surprise that the tight-run-
ning crew- aboard the Main
Attraction out of Key Colony
Beach took first place with a
55-pound dolphin. The angler
was David Rodriguez from
Miami. The captain was Marty
Lewis and mate was Jaime
Platt.
For a full list of winners, go
to www.veteranshaven.com.



One of the most competitive
tournaments the past couple of
weeks might have been the
Islamorada Fishing Club's


Captains Cup Dolphin
Tournament.
This sobering tournament
leaves no arguments: Winner
take all, $25,000. That kind of
catches you.
It is a three-fish total weight
dolphin tournament in which
you have to weigh in three fish.
Last year's winner, Skip
Bradeen on the Blue Chip Too
out of Whale Harbor Marina in
Islamorada, almost didn't win
due to his crew not finding a
schoolie dolphin until just about
lines out.
In other words, that small
dolphin won him $25,000.
Twenty-two teams kicked off
last Wednesday from the
Islamorada Fishing Club, with
Thursday the day of fishing.
The Yo Ho Ho team weighed
in a total of 83.2 pounds of dol-
phin with their three biggest
fish, one of which weighed 53.4
pounds, to become the 2007
winners.
Anglers Bob Lodge from
Plantation Key and Al McLeod
from Plantation Key were fish-
ing aboard their boat Yo Ho Ho
with Capt. Charlie Scoble and
mate Robert Helms out of
Islamorada.
Second place with three fish
for a total of 74.3 pounds was
awarded to Nothin's Wild con-
sisting of Keith St. Germaine,
Stephan Garrison, Capt.
Donovan Garrison and Tim
Lucas, all from Homestead.
Third place went to the char-

Just make sure
you share some
with the friends

Summer is here, the kids are
out of school, travel plans are just
about to go into effect for many
'L];"'-- and the fishing is accommo-
dating to all.
If you are heading elsewhere
to visit friends and relatives, now
is a good time to load up on fish
to take to them.
The dolphin are around in such
good numbers that everyone that
travels out far enough on that cer-
S tain day to hit the good schools
can load up with their limit of
good-sized schoolies to have
enough fish to take with them.
There have been some nice
fish caught the past week in
excess of 50 pounds, and plenty
S of others have been more than 30
'"l pounds on the outer weed lines.
Get a couple of these fish, and
you will have tons of filets to
please those up north.
You will still find plenty of
dolphin within only a few miles
of the reef, as there have been
quite a few 6 or fewer miles
beyond the reef line.
Speaking of the reef line, with


Sthe dark of
D the moon
upon us,
yellowtail
fishing has
been red
= hot. Most

g a usual loca-
S tions from
Si e 60 to 100
feet have
been on
fire, with
Dave Navarro nice flags
as well as
some very nice mutton snapper.
The occasional big grouper has
also been available to anglers fish-
ing a large bait near the bottom.
If you are on the other end of
the spectrum that is, just com-
ing into the Keys for your sum-
mer vacation you have hit a
great time to have your way with
all types of fish that are available
now. The same is true for locals
who know when not to leave the
Keys.
The flats are busy with all of
the top game fish as well as plen-
ty of fun fish and quite a few
good-eating species, as well.
There's so much action now that
I'm having trouble finishing writ-
ing this (I'm going fishing as soon
as the I type the final period).
If you are a fishaholic like me,
you may want to try one of the
days like I love to do (it is not
good for marital relationships
unless you take your spouse with
you, and sometimes that may be
even worse).
I like to make the most of the
time I get off to go fish. I will
take off early in the morning and
swing by the bridge with a live
pinfish for a shot at the tarpon. It
will get your body going better
than the best coffee.


Then I'll head offshore for a
round of dolphin, wahoo, tuna or
even a shot at a marlin. After hav-
ing our way with them, I return to
the reef for an evening of man-
grove and yellowtail fishing
while always having a live bait
on the bottom for a grouper.
On the way home late in'the
evening (or sometimes early the
next morning), I might as well
toss a bait in around the bridges
since I'm passing by, anyway, for
another,shot at a tarpon to top off
the day (or night). After all, if
you're going to fish, really fish.
The bars, the chores, the bills
and all of the other stuff will be
there tomorrow. If you are lucky,
so will your spouse; Or maybe
not it depends on your point of
view, now doesn't it?
One of the most fun areas you
can fish on light tackle now is the
flats, with all of the top game fish
present and the ability to see them
so good with the clear, calm
waters. It is great on either light
spinning or fly tackle.
One thing that fly enthusiasts
don't think of as a good time is to
go offshore, although more and
more are doing it.
Schools of dolphin are one of
the best times you can have on a
fly rod. They are aggressive and
exciting to catch. You don't need
an open boat to do a roll cast to
them, so you don't have to do all
of the false casts out there. In
fact, you may have to keep your
back cast off the water or you will
have one on earlier than you had
planned.
All of this fishing is not as
complicated as many folks have
it built up to be. The main objec-
tive is to have fun at whatever
you do. There are many ways to
do just that. It can be accom-
plished by using a little common
sense and checking with local
tackle stores for the best way to
go about what you want to do.
Never mind the little snickers
and giggles that you may get on
some of your questions. Most of
the people down here came from
somewhere else originally and
had to learn how to fish here, just
like you.
