Concerned about losing treas-
ured fishing spots in Florida
Bay, a coalition of Upper Keys
anglers and conservationists
'unveiled their own proposal for
new Everglades National Park
rules.
"People need to be aware that
the wind is blowing in a depress-
ing direction, toward more regu-
lation," said project leader Jim
Trice, an avid Islamorada angler.-
Local guides and fishermen
were alarmed by elements of
three possible plans dubbed
alternatives B through D that
were used for discussion at a
series of seven South Florida
workshops. Alternative A would
not change any Everglades rules.
"We believe Alternative A is
as irresponsible as Alternative
D," the most restrictive scenario
drafted by Everglades staff,
Trice said.
"Alternative E: Everglades
for the Educated" was formally
released Monday by the local
group representing the Don
Hawley Foundation, the Florida
Keys Fishing Guides
Association, the Islamorada
Fishing Club, Bonefish and
Tarpon Unlimited, and the
Islamorada Fishing and
Conservation Trust, among oth-
ers.
The nine-page proposal
endorses programs such as a
mandatory boat-use permit for
Florida Bay, obtained by proving
competence in bay navigation.
Less-experienced boaters
could qualify through work-
shops or an online program.
"Without eliminating people
from experiencing- the park, we
want to ensure that everybody
has a good park experience,"
Trice said. "More user education
and etiquette is one way to
accomplish that."
Another key proposal would
designate an idle-zone within
100 yards of some shorelines, to
provide a more tranquil experi-
ence for wildlife, kayakers and
flats fishermen.
"Who wants to go racing that
close to the shoreline anyway?"
Trice said. "We think it's a great
concept."
"Alternative E" says the
authors oppose eliminating
powerboat access to any area
where boats can now travel, and


rejects suggested restrictions on
boat size or motor power.
Everglades Superintendent
Dan Kimball repeatedly raised
the prospect of a new rule that
caps boat size at 24 feet, since
vessels that cause grounding
damage tend to be larger than 24
feet.
The Alternative E writers
agreed that flats less than 2 feet
deep should be accessed only by
paddle or push pole, but insisted
that flats skiffs be allowed if
their engines are raised.
Some areas such as the
now-closed Little Madeira Bay
or Joe Bay could be opened
for paddle-only access, the plan
says.
Trice said Kimball called to
express his appreciation for the
"fantastic" effort involved in the
project.
"It was a lot of work by a fair-
ly small group, because we had
to move fast," Trice said. "There


were differing views that kept
each other honest, and made us
really think about things. It real-
ly is unbelievable how much we
were able to accomplish."
The Alternative E proposal
will be presented to the
Islamorada Village Council at its
June 28 meeting for possible
recommendation.
"This is the definition of a
grassroots movement, but we
can distribute electronically to
thousands of people," Trice said.
The Alternative E proposal
and supporting documents are
on a newly opened Web site,
www.alternativee.com.
Comment period on this
phase of the Everglades National
Park's General Management
Plan process closes July 31.
"The most important message
was want to get out is that it's
critical to make a comment,"
Trice said. "We may all be old
before we see any actual
changes, but this process is
going to drive the change."


Proposal increases rates


FKAA / From 1

of close to $1 million by cutting
legal and engineering consult-
ants.
FKAA revenues flow from
user fees. Recent legislative tax
relief revolves around property.
taxes, requiring local govern-
ments to roll back their budgets
for 2007-08 to anywhere from 3
percent to 7 percent below the
current taxing rate.
"We were looking to have a
flat budget," Reynolds said, "but
like the sheriff's budget, salaries
are a large portion of our
expense. We're still whittling
away at it, though."
According to Deputy Director
Kerry Shelby, salaries and the
cost of benefits are going up. In
addition, he said, the Aqueduct
Authority will add four new
positions to fulfill a new contract
with the U.S. Navy to maintain
its water system.
"Those positions will be off-
set by a new source of revenue,"
he said of the Navy paying for
the service.
Salaries are proposed'to go up
by $1.8 million, a 3.5 percent
cost-of-living increase.
Utility officials say in the


budget proposal that water use is
expected to drop during the
2007-08 fiscal year by as much
at 10 percent "due to water
restrictions and the number of
hotel rooms unavailable"
because of closure and redevel-
opment.
Water rates increased by 2.6
percent in May, and the proposed
budget would increase rates
another 5 percent beginning in
October.
That means an average house-
hold currently paying an $11
base rate would see an increase
of about 60 cents. Users are also
charged a fee for consumption,
which would go up just a few
pennies per month, anywhere
from $5 a month to $10, depend-
ing how many gallons of water
used.
According to FKAA spokes-
woman Colleen Tagle, most resi-
dential and small-business con-
sumers use fewer than 5,000 gal-
lons a month.
Starting on this month's bill,
users will see a 30 percent sur-
charge for anything over 6,000
gallons. The proposed budget
does not suggest changing that,
Tagle said, and any changes
would have to go through the
board of directors.

Council endorses no-take area off Long Key


It now awaits
approval from
commerce chief
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A new marine protected
area off the Middle Keys was
endorsed by the South Florida
Fishery Management Council
at last week's meeting in'Key
West.
The zone of 50 square miles
- called the East
Hump/Unnamed Hump MPA
- lies about a dozen miles
.offshore of Long Key.
If approved as expected by
U.S. Secretary of Commerce
Carlos Gutierrez, all commer-
cial and recreational deep-
water fishing for snapper and
grouper would be banned in

They're now set
aside to protect
endangered crocs
Keynoter Staff

Portions of Everglades
National Park closed, for
decades to protect the endan-
gered American crocodile
could be reopened to public
access, park Superintendent
Dan Kimball said at recent
Keys workshops.
Those areas lie west of U.S.
1, federal officials said this
week.
No areas in the Crocodile
Lake National Wildlife Refuge
would be affected, said
Elizabeth Souheaver, chief of
southeast refuges for the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service.
Most of the Crocodile Lake
refuge lies to the east of U.S. 1.
Kimball said Everglades
areas including Joe Bay and
Little Madeira Bay could be
opened to access. Uses could


be permitted.
A proposal to establish a
series of MPAs to protect
deep-water species off the
U.S. Atlantic coast gas been
germinating for years.
Thursday, the South
Atlantic council unanimously
backed the creation of eight
MPAs.
The other two Florida
MPAs are off Jacksonville and
Hobe Sound.
Enforcement will not begin
until the protected areas are
signed into law by the secre-
tary, after formal publication
of the rules. No time frame
was available.
Moving forward to create
the MPAs will "protect habitat
as well as populations of deep-
water stocks and ultimately
aid in rebuilding these
stocks," said South Atlantic
Council Chairman George
Geiger, a Central Florida fish-
ing guide. "It is the right thing
to do."


be limited, such as restricting
use to kayaks and canoes.
The areas have been pro-
tected since the early 1980s to
protect the handful of
American crocodiles then
alive, and allow the population
to recover, the superintendent
said.
"That recovery has
occurred," Kimball said, not-
ing the crocodile is proposed
for "uplisting" to status as a
protected species, rather than
an endangered species.
"There are some who
believe that these areas have
been closed for a long time,
and we need to keep them
closed," Kimball said. "We are
sensitive to that."
No final decisions have
been made on new Everglades
rules.' The planning process
will continue until a preferred-
alternative draft is released in
summer 2008. Actual imple-
mentation is expected in mid-
2009.


A South Atlantic assess-
ment of the plan says, "Many
deep-water species, including
snowy grouper, golden tilefish
and speckled hind, are vulner-
able to overfishing because
they are long lived, have com-
plex life histories and do not
survive the trauma of capture
from deep waters."
In 2000, commercial boats
reported taking 833,321
pounds from the East Hump


area, including 31,736 pounds
of the deepwater species.
The new Keys MPA often
was described by council staff
as a site determined by exten-
sive talks with local residents.
When originally proposed,
federal managers suggested
closing another Keys spawn-
ing area for the species the
famed Islamorada Hump.
Local anglers, led by guide
Bill Kelly, worked to offer a


counter-proposal to close the
East Hump instead.
Some local commercial
fishermen have voiced opposi-
tion to losing the right to bot-
tomfish in the area.
South Atlantic Council
member Tony larocci, a
Marathon commercial fisher-
man, has said he worries the
Keys MPA will not be effec-
tive without increased law
enforcement in the area.

Service could get slashed


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Layton city officials are
working hard to prevent the
U.S. Postal Service from reas-
signing one of their two clerks
to another location.
In a letter to Bill Sullivan,
the American Postal Workers'
Union regional coordinator, the
Postal Service indicated that
"due to completed Function 4
Reviews, it is anticipated that
one full-time clerk will be reas-
signed outside of the craft
and/or installation at the Long
Key, Florida, Post Office."
The letter also said "the
implementation of the above
cited change will be effective as
early as July, 2007."
Local APWU President Jack
Baldwin said the reviews had
previously been done by send-
ing an observer, but are now
based solely on computer data
measuring the amount of
incoming and outgoing mail, as
well as revenue brought in and
office operating costs.
"We're saying that survey is
flawed, it doesn't take into con-
sideration other factors,"


Baldwin said. "They're always
looking for ways to make budg-
et cuts but they don't always
work out for the betterment of
service."
Layton Mayor Norman
Anderson said he feels moving
either Harolyr Keeney or Diane
Saunders, both of whom have
been at the Long Key post
office 10 years or more, would
be doing the community a great
disservice.
"Who's going to run the
place when someone is sick?
What happens when they go on
vacation?". Anderson said.
"We've had good service since
the city was founded and all of
a sudden they're going to cut
the workforce in half. I think the
post office is doing us wrong
and they're doing it based on
some computer, not on what it
actually takes to run the place."
One of the two clerks also
spends roughly two hours a day,
six days a week, servicing
Outdoor Resorts, a 411-unit
condominium facility 2.5 miles
west of the Long Key post
office at mile marker 65.5.


Anderson has written to U.S.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen ask-
ing her to intervene, while
Baldwin drafted a letter that
was mailed to Long Key postal
customers urging them to "let
your representative know you
will tolerate no cuts in your
Postal Service."
"The only thing that can stop
them is backlash from you, the
town's people, who will feel the
effects of the service reduc-
tion," Baldwin wrote.
Ros-Lehtinen on Tuesday
sent letters to the Postal
Service's South Florida district
manager and Monroe County
postmaster requesting assis-
tance with the matter.
"My office has contacted the
Postal Service asking if there
are any other alternatives to
reducing the staff...," Ros-
Lehtinen said in a prepared
statement. "We can work with
the USPS to achieve a solution
that is acceptable to all parties
and that will continue with the
level of customer service that
the residents there expect."
To contact Ros-Lehtinen, call
(305) 220-3281, or visit www

Lucky's vote today


LUCKY'S / From 1

extended to September.
Only 30 residents are affected
by the park owner's plans to
redevelop, but dozens of Keys
residents oppose the change.
Many worry that approval
would set a dangerous precedent
that could put an end to what
many consider the last of the
affordable housing in the Keys.
"If Lucky's Landing is suc-
cessful, every mobile-park owner
in the Keys will use this prece-
dent to petition the county for a
land-use change," Sandy Brown,
representing the Big Pine Key
Civic Association, wrote in a
May letter to the editor. "This
will then allow them to petition
the county for the same changes
and evict their residents for rede-
velopment to market-rate condo-
miniums."
Acting Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette, in his
staff analysis, recommends the
commission approve the zoning
change, noting the developer
needs it to increase the property's
density to meet the county's
-requirement that 30 percent of
redevelopment go to affordable
housing.
In fact, much of the opposition
has to do with the prospect of
multi-family units on the site.
Dozens of Lower Keys resi-
dents signed a form letter that


accompanied the zoning-change
application to the Planning
Commission pleading with the
county not to create "the first big
condominium project" in the
Lower Keys.
In the meantime, attorney
Robert Cintron has updated a
lawsuit for residents of the park.
Cintron filed the suit in April
seeking relief for the Lucky's
Landing Mobile Home Owners
Association.
On June 8, Cintron amended
the original complaint after he
learned that Warner allegedly
acted in bad faith by selling the
property to Crown Four LLC.
Cintron said that according to
state law, the homeowners asso-
ciation has the right to purchase
the park an opportunity that
was never offered.
Cintron cites a joint-venture
agreement dated March 12 trans-
ferring the park's ownership after
the park is closed and redevel-
oped with a vacation home com-
munity.
"The homeowner's associa-
tion," Cintron wrote in the suit,
"believes that the joint-venture
agreement is an attempt by the
defendant to frustrate the home-
owners association statutory right
to purchase the park."
The suit seeks an immediate
injunction on the residents' evic-
tion as well as damages, and
demands a jury trial.

Publix investigating


CAT FOOD / From I

Mader said the animal is in on
dialysis in an intensive care unit
and he is unsure of her prognosis.
Stamm produced both the cat
food and the receipt from June
11, and both he and Mader veri-
fied the food was on the recall list
posted at www.menufoods
.com.
"My concern now is my cat
but I don't want other cats getting
hurt," Stamm said. "It shouldn't
happen after three months.
Somehow it got back on their
shelf, but we're pretty distraught
about it."
Both Mader and Stamm are
concerned there may have been
more of the product on Publix
shelves. Both said they have con-
tacted the Marathon store and
Publix corporate offices in
Lakeland.
Mader is especially concerned
that residents may have pur-


chased the food and are storing it
in the event of a hurricane.
"What if they've done that
and then go to feed their cats and
they get sick?" Mader said. "Now
all of a sudden we've got a cri-
sis... the vets are all closed, it
could be really bad."
SAnne Hendricks, Publix South
Florida media and community
relations manager, said all the
recalled cat and dog foods were
removed from store shelves
March 17.
Hendricks also said Publix
had "zero inventory" of any
recalled items in their distribution
centers or warehouses and that
said items were locked out at the
point of sale, meaning their cash
registers will not allow for the
item to be scanned.
"We take all complaints seri-
ously," Hendricks said. "As far as
we know the product was pulled
March 17, but at the same time
we are conducting an internal
investigation.

Get used to tougher

long-term water rules

For anyone caught in the gully washer rains early Saturday, it
may seem hard to fathom that we're looking at new, tougher
water restrictions.
But indeed, at a series of public hearings that began Monday,
the South Florida Water Management District is setting expecta-
tions for what could become permanent limits on how often we
can wash cars and water our plants.
Currently, Monroe County is on Phase 2 restrictions, which
means watering is limited to two days per week, divided up by
addresses: 4 to 8 a.m. Wednesday and Saturdays at addresses
ending in an odd number, Thursdays and Sundays for even-num-
bered or those with no address.
The Water Management District would like to see permanent
water reduction rules allowing no more than three days a week
for those purposes. This is the same rule that's been enforced in
Southwest Florida counties since 2003.
There will surely be some grumbling from various camps, but
the overall hurt will be far less than more Draconian restrictions
that could loom on the near horizon.
Despite all the recent rain in coastal areas of Monroe, Miami-
Dade and parts of Broward counties, rain to restore Lake
Okeechobee is still woefully below normal.
For those who remember the 2001 drought and the severe
restrictions then, going to three-day-a-week water rules may be
the wisest preventative steps we can take.
Regardless, we're all in this one together, and for a long time
to come.

Popham: Environmental hero

Every so often, we hear about an individual who does his or
her community proud, in a quiet sort of way, with not much fan-
fare but an impact larger than many neighbors ever suspect.
Bruce Popham, owner of the Marathon Boat Yard, is a good
example of just that.
In Keys Sunday, we profiled Popham and showcased his work
on behalf of the state's Clean Marina program.
Popham, who has served as chairman of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council, on Marathon
Chamber of Commerce board of directors and the Middle Keys
Marine Association, among others, has been a driving force in
the state's Clean Boating Partnership.
This effort has generated 16,000 Clean Boater pledge cards
and commitments from both public and private marinas, boat
yards and marine retailers to preach the gospel of keeping
Florida waters clean.
His Marathon Boat Yard became the first in the Keys recog-
nized for achieving this designation.and the first Keys marine
retailer to earn the coveted Clean award.
Popham's dedication to this cause is now spreading to pro-
grams in other states.
He's a hometown hero who deserves our thanks and support to
keep this Florida Clean effort growing.

Hotel/EOC plans for airport raise too many questions


EDITOR: *
Why is County Administrator Tom Willi not
asking the county Division of Emergency
Management for-its input into this hotel/emer-
gency operations center idea for Florida Keys
Marathon Airport?
There is a new fire station with beds, kitchen
and emergency system operation on the airport
property being built. Why can't the EOC be run
out of it during a hurricane?
SWhere will the emergency vehicles be? How
many days do we need everyone sitting in the
EOC? How many people does it take to manage
the EOC? Why do you need a hotel to stay in?
Do you need someone to change the sheets, vacu-
um the floor, pick up the towels after you take a
shower?
When you set up the EOC, you know that a
hurricane is a coming and going within 72 hours,
or do we have it open for a week or more?
I like the sound of Hotel Willi.
Why can't he use the beautiful hotels and
resorts built to Florida building code all over
Marathon? Maybe instead of dissing Cay Clubs
and other resort investors in Monroe County, we
should be turning to them in planning agreements
to help us out.


What about the former Marathon Manor for
an EOC? It already has phone and cable lines and
individual rooms, kitchens and lounging facili-
ties. Could we talk to the School Board, which
owns it? The teachers will all be evacuated,
won't they?
The Mosquito Control District building under
construction at the airport is huge. How many
planes does it hold? Can't the county use that
building? If we set up the EOC, aren't we all
evacuating? Does the Mosquito Control Board
evacuate?
Maybe our county administrator should look
into thinning the fat on what is essential to make
the EOC run.
On another subject, who do all the cars, trail-
ers, boats and motor homes inside the fence at
the Marathon airport belong to? Are they being
charged a storage fee? Why can't I park my
motor home in there for storage? It proved to be
not a safe place during Hurricane Wilma.
Could we please clean up the trash? I realize
that some of the burned-up school buses and
planes are used for practicing materials. But look
close at the personal vehicles being stored there.

Endlich helps day care
EDITOR:
We at Grace Jones Daycare would like the
community to know about a local Marathon High
graduate named Jackie Endlich who is giving back
to our community in a very different sort of way.
Jackie, already an established artist, worked for
Grace Jones Daycare in the summer of her junior
year. She brought with her new ideas and creativi-
ty that the children so loved. Her mom, Linda
Lanier served on our Grace Jones board in 2003 as
well and contributed much in support and time to
us as well.
Today, Jackie and mom Linda have established
MoGills Inc., which is a-new fishing apparel com-
pany with signature designs by Jackie. With the
family's ongoing support of our center, they are
contributing a portion of their earnings from Lil'
Gills and Under the Docs with Barracuda lines
going to Grace Jones. A beautiful hang tag will be
displayed acknowledging the portion of profits
given back.
We already have been told that Jackie has illus-
trated and mom has written a three-part series
children's book titled "Adventures Under the
Dock with Barrycuda." We can't wait to read it.
Thank you to both for continuing their support,
which began long ago for a great cause.

request for proposals comes forward for just such

The proposal made to the mayor by his friend

from friends of commissioners should not drive
the RFP process, and no matter how you present
it, it has the outward appearance of a back-room

I would prefer that this RFP be tabled. If it is

Groups combine efforts to help student


EDITOR:
I would like to express my appreci-
ation to Zonta of Marathon and
Richard Tallmadge of The Restaurant
Store in Key West.
Zonta, in concert with the Eckerd
Foundation of Florida, awarded a
scholarship for a deserving Marathon
High School student to attend a three-
day culinary arts camp this summer.
Because of a series of complications,
the student was unable to attend. At
that point Zonta agreed to allow us to
use the scholarship dollars to purchase
culinary equipment for the student's
home use.
That's where Mr. Tallmadge
stepped in. Recognizing this could be
a unique opportunity for this student
to explore his love of the culinary
arts, Mr. Tallmadge offered to put
together a package of cooking equip-
ment that would provide the student


with the opportunity to learn and
experiment with an array of high-
quality products.
The result was a collection worth
more than the original scholarship
amount. It was a privilege for me to
witness and participate in this young
man's joy and excitement as he
received these gifts.
We are so fortunate to live and
work in a community where people
come together to help us help the kids
we have chosen to serve. Thanks to
Mr. Tallmadge and the women of
Zonta. Their generosity gave us the
opportunity to help this student see
possibilities for his future that he
might never have seen otherwise.

'Affordable' housing is out of reach


EDITOR:
People just ain't getting it.
Sometimes I feel like beating my head
against the wall or on the grill of a
speeding cement truck (some people I
know would prefer the latter).
I keep seeing the words "affordable
housing" here in the-Keys being thrown
around like a Frisbee in the park. Now
they're calling it workforce housing. Are
we to assume that the word "workforce"
applies to the many Kmart, Publix and
Winn-Dixie employees, the hundreds of
people in the service industry, police,
firefighters, mechanics, teachers, etc.?
If so, then I would assume that
affordable housing and workforce hous-
ing cannot mean the same thing because
most of the aforementioned people
could not afford an "affordable" house
with a $250,000 to $300,000 price tag.
So that leaves us with "workforce
housing."
Just recently our good county mayor
was quoted as saying something to the
effect, Whoever designated mobile
homes as affordable housing in the first
place? Well, I can tell you who. Me, and
the hundreds of others (used to be thou-
sands before development) who live in
mobile homes and RVs and provide the
much-needed services for the residents
and tourists here in Monroe County.
They may not be considered "afford-
able housing," but they make damn
good "workforce housing."
Mobile homes and RVs may not gen-
erate the tax base that a $300,000-plus
"affordable" house would generate, I'm
sure, but they sure do make it affordable
living for our greatly needed workforce.
I have lived in an RV for most of my
32 years here in the Keys, and still do.
My current residence has been here
since at least 1986 and has withstood all
that nature has thrown at it. It affords the


opportunity for my wife and I to work
and be productive members of our soci-
ety here in the Keys.
If a major hurricane should happen to
come this way, my wife and I will evac-
uate to higher ground when advised to
do so, and if we come back and, God
forbid, find it destroyed, we will pay to
have it demolished, hauled away and
disposed of.
Then we would find another good
used one for $5,000 or $6,000, put it on
site, and still have a "workforce" house
for fewer than 10 grand. That,.to me, is
truly affordable/workforce housing.
I would like to think that most of our
friends and neighbors, and politicians,
feel the same way, because if things con-
tinue in-the direction they are going, I'm
afraid our homeless population will have
the only true affordable or workforce
housing left here in Monroe County.

We, the Pampered Chef team for

Specialty Hardware for its donation of
a wheelbarrow, Curves for displaying it
and selling tickets, Lori at the deli for
letting us set up in front of her shop,
and also most important, all of the
patrons who bought the tickets so we
could raise the money for the Relay.
Also, thanks to Cathy, Liz,

Without them, it wouldn't have

Delta flies 40-passenger planes like this Bombardier into the Middle Keys.


Marathon airfares actually are competitive


EDITOR:
I have been closely following your articles
in regard to Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
Since my husband David was instrumental in
bringing air service to Marathon, I could be
seen as somewhat biased, but I would like to
share my experience with Delta.
I recently went to St. Louis and looked at
traveling from Miami or Fort Lauderdale and
the fares round trip were around $290 from
either of those airports. I did some searching
on the Internet and tried different dates over
the Memorial Day weekend and found a fare
for $456 round trip to St. Louis from
Marathon. After considering the cost of park-
ing ($75) and fuel ($50), I decided the addi-
tional $41 it would cost to fly from Marathon
was well worth it.
We had been thinking about going to
Alaska in July and I went to Travelocity and
looked at fares and found $806 from Miami
to Anchorage. Then I went to Cheap Tickets
and found $632 from Marathon. Both are for


round trips. I ws amazed at these numbers.
I think part cf the key to getting the better
fare is to be flexible in regard to your dates
and times and to search the Intemet thor-
oughly. I recently found a site,
www.kayak.com, that searches all airfares
available. It is remarkably easy to compare
the various airlines and fares.
My only real problem with flying into
Marathon occurred in St. Louis when I went
to check my two bags. I was told that I was
only allowed to have one checked bag on the
flight to Marathon. It was OK to have the
carry-on and a checked bag, but not two
checked bags. This made no sense to me and
is something I think needs to be examined.
I hope other people will give Delta a
chance because my experience has been that
it is not necessarily a lot more expensive if
you look at the whole picture and spend a lit-
tle time looking for an acceptable fare.

Watch your kids around the water


EDITOR:
Young children are irresistibly drawn to
water. Many of us are aware of the dangers a
pool or canal pose to young children. In most
cases, pool and canal drownings happen
when the caregiver was distracted for a brief
moment or the toddler was able to get to the
water source without the caregivers knowl-
edge. Fencing is the best protection from
wandering, unsupervised children.
Other water hazards such as buckets, toi-
lets, spas, hot tubs and bathtubs have resulted
in hundreds of deaths to young children
annually. It is often recommended to fill your
bathtub for a water source during hurricanes.
This can be dangerous to toddlers, especially
when parents and caregivers are preoccupied
and distracted with hurricane preparation or
recovery.
Boating brings its own risks. Regulations
require personal flotation devices for all chil-


dren. Just as we buckle up our children in the
car or get the proper protective and safety
equipment for sport activities, PFDs should
always be worn when boating. However, it
should be noted that car seats are not
designed to float. Quite the opposite, as they
are heavy and unstable in the water. Personal
flotation devices are not babysitters nor are
they a substitute for supervision.
Yes, a fence can be expensive and obstruct
a view in a backyard, and a life jacket can be
cumbersome. However the years they are
needed are limited and in the end your chil-
dren will be safe. But first and foremost,
supervision is the key to prevention. There
are no second chances when it comes to a
tragedy, and most tragedies can be prevented.

1,000 homes in 1,000 days?


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.coni


At the close of the third Key
West Alliance of Community
Housing meeting Monday, mem-
bers sparked an initiative striving
to create 1,000 available afford-
able housing units in 1,000 days.
The goal of the proposal:
"Saving a thousand families in a
thousand days," according to city
Community Housing Committee
member and firefighter Omar
Garcia.
But with recent introductions
to new acronyms like CRAVE-
(citizens radically against virtual-
ly everything) and BANANA
(build absolutely nothing any-
where near anyone), the group
says it's cognizant of what it's up
against.
And there's the little matter of
building permits: There simply
aren't 1,000 permits available in
the county.
Since the Keys are designated
an Area of Critical State
Concern, the Florida Department
of Community Affairs decides
how many permits the Keys get
each year based not only on hur-
ricane evacuation times, but on
progress constructing sewers and
protecting the environment.
At most in any given year,
DCA awards just over 200 per-
mits. And that number can fluc-
tuate up or down depending on
whether the Cabinet deems


progress is being made.
Alliance members heard sug-
gestions and plans from Capitol
Alliance Group consultant
Jeffrey Sharkey. The city-paid
consultant highlighted the impor-
tance of the Keys' working com-
munity.
"You steal the soul of the
community if our workers
leave," he said of people who
found living too expensive in the
Keys.
A Florida Housing Finance
Corp. program called the
Community Workforce Housing
Innovation Program (CWHIP)
was declared a source of funding
for the goal.
The conditions of CWHIP as
read in a Florida Housing
Finance document: "At least 50
percent of the affordable housing
units built using CWHIP should
be set aside for essential service
personnel" like police and fire-
fighters many of whom com-
mute from the Upper Keys and
Miami for their four-day work
week, according to Paul Clayton,
the city's affordable housing
coordinator.
Debate over whether the
efforts should be countywide or
regional left uncertainty linger-
ing in the Gato Building confer-
ence room.

trate," Naval Air Station Key
West spokesman Jim Brooks
said.
Others objected to localizing
projects, saying it's a countywide
problem and should be treated as
such. But ultimately, the group
decided to extend the endeavor
as far up the Keys as possible.
"We know this area first,"
Alliance member John Dolan-
Heitlinger said of the Lower


Keys. "If this is replicable, we'll
do it."
Dolan-Heitlinger agreed with
other Alliance members in that
development must be "creative"
to make the efforts a success.
This means exploring endeavors
with higher density such as
building units on top of shops, he
said.
In the near future, Alliance
members will divide into com-


mittees tackling specifics such as
mitigating NIMBYism, financ-
ing possibilities, regulatory barri-
ers and advocacy and informa-
tion.
"If you want to sell this to the
community, people are going to
have to believe there is a real
need," said Alliance member
Donna Windle, also a member
of the county Planning
Commission.


Workforce housing to expand

By KYLE TEAL ~ | -'
kteal@keynoter.com E '


For Adisa Venter, living in the
Keys with her family would be a
mere fantasy if it weren't for her
low-income dwelling.
Venter, 23, has lived in the
Meridian West apartment com-
plex on Stock Island for three
years and said she feels "safe"
and "happy" in her unit. She said
she'd like to stay in the Keys as
long as possible with her daugh-
ter Zarina, 1 year and 8 months,
and her husband Delarey, 27.
Venter is a stay-at-home moth-
er. Her husband is a security
guard at Teasers strip club in Key
West.
"We're a young couple and we
can support ourselves," she said.
"This apartment really helped us
out. It wouldn't be possible for us
to stay here without it."
Venter has a two-bedroom,
$750-a-month unit. Her complex
bustles with children gliding
along the parking lot on inline
skates, teenagers bouncing bas-
ketballs and fathers carrying gro-
ceries from SUVs. Neighbors
chat on second-story balconies
and on Wednesdays, residents get
together for Crime Watch meet-
ings.
Damian Waldner, 33, says he
loves his median-income home
across from Meridian West, in a
newly constructed row of houses
on stilts called Park Village.
Waldner is employed at the
Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority
and lives by himself in the new
$268,000 home.
The houses of Park Village
usually run from about $259,250
to $289,750 for the homes on
Sixth Avenue.
Project Manager Debbie Swift
said all of the Park Village units
should be completed and occu-
pied by September.


Adisa Venter, 23, takes her 20-month-old daughter, Zarina, to the
playground near their Meridian West apartment on Stock
Island.Venter has lived with her husband Delarey in the Keys for
four years, thanks only to finding the affordable housing.


The completed project will
have 40 units, those with two
bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms
boasting 1,150 square feet and
units with three bedrooms and
2.5 bathrooms at 1,275 square
feet. Each home comes with a 9-
foot ceiling, garage and impact
glass. Swift said their next project
is nearby Islander Village, which
has not sold out.
Key West businessman Ed
Swift was a consultant on the
Meridian project and has been
working to increase the stock of
moderate-income housing in the
Keys.
Meridian West's waiting list is
full.
Located near those complex-
es, a parcel is earmarked for
development of a complex called
Flagler Village, with 49 units.
Those will cost the same as the
Park Village units and the project
should be finished by next spring,
said Walt Lee of Flagler Realty.
Six of the 49 units are reserved.


Roberto Morales, who works
maintenance at the Fairfield Inn
on North Roosevelt, lives in the
Meridian West complex with his
wife, two little girls and infant
son.
According to Morales, the
communities like Meridian West
work very well when it comes it
raising a family. He always feels
safe and is able to put food on the
table without a problem, he said.
The complex opened in 2004.
The $16 million, 102-unit
project is the largest low-income
development built in the Keys in
more than a decade. The seven-
acre property is owned and man-
aged by the Carlisle Group.
Numerous families inter-
viewed said they pay about $590
for one bedroom unit. A three-
bedroom apartment is about $850
a month.
"Its probably the best thing
that could happen for families,"
Venter said.

Bridge talk spans many options


Special faxing
district could
help with repairs
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
June 12, took the following
actions:
Held a discussion with
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis regarding the status of
the Boot Key Bridge. Geotis
indicated temporary repairs to
the failing bridge would cost
$1.5 million and the ultimate
cost for complete refurbish-
ment is estimated at $5.2 mil-
lion.


F-18 pilots
are practicing
carrier landings
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Some neighbors of Naval
Air Station Key West could be
frustrated by high noise levels
the next couple of-evenings,
but it may make it easier to
take if they know why.
"The runway will be set up
to look like a lighted aircraft
carrier deck," base spokesman
Jim Brooks said. "We're
bringing in carrier-based plots
who are getting ready to make
their first landings on an air-
craft carrier."
The training means that F-
18s will be flying tonight and
Thursday evening from sunset
- until 10 p.m. The pilots will
also fly during the day but,
Brooks noted, daytime flights
are expected by nearby resi-
dents.
"Usually during this sort of
training, the airplanes fly at a
reduced speed," Brooks said.
"It's still over 120 mph. Jet
aircraft are not designed to fly
at that speed. It requires more
power, which means more
noise. And with the right


The council discussed
future options for the bridge
including creating a special
taxing district so Boot Key
businesses benefiting from the
bridge's repair would help
absorb the cost. Closing the
bridge in favor of a ferry serv-
ice to the island was also dis-
cussed.
Heard a presentation by
Planning Director Fred Gross
regarding a planned affordable
housing project on city-owned
property at 104th Street. Gross
said the city found four
respondents who qualified for
the project by "piggybacking"
on a county-issued request for
qualifications.
He indicated that if a


weather conditions, that noise
can carry."
Brooks says the landing
practice will take place on the
base's Runway 3, meaning
Stock Island and Tamarac
Park on Geiger Key will get
most of the noise.
Key Haven should not be
affected much by the landings,
he said.
There will be five aircraft
at a time in the air, Brooks
said, which could compound
the sound.
"It's got to be timed, just
like it would be for an aircraft
carrier," he said. "These pilots
must get accustomed to flying
with planes in front and
behind them because it's all
about timing."
After these new pilots get a
good taste of the mock lighted
runway, they're headed off-
shore for a real night landing
on a carrier, Brooks said.
The Navy generally
attempts to minimize night-
time practice because of the
impact on nearby residents.
Still, residents of Geiger Key,
Big Coppitt Key, Key Haven
and Stock Island all experi-
ence some level of aircraft
noise when training is under
way.

soon, development of the 2.6-
acre lot could begin by the end
of the year.
+ Approved a major condi-
tional use for the construction
of a 3,915-square-foot dock at
the Island Tiki Bar near mile
marker 54. The dock will con-
tain 25 boat slips and no
overnight mooring will be
allowed.
Approved a modification
to an existing development
agreement with Peebles Corp.
for the redevelopment of the
Key Colony Bay Hotel.
The approval included a
stipulation for Peebles to pay
the city $800,000 in affordable
housing contributions no later
than 12 months from the effec-
tive date of the agreement. The
developer had been seeking an
18-month reprieve.
+ Authorized plans to move
city offices from the 100th
Street Center, where the city
rents space, into trailers at the
events field between 98th and
99th streets. City Manager
Mike Puto said William
Scotsman will build six more
trailers, much like those cur-


rently in use at the events
field, to be rented by the city.
Councilman Pete Worthington
was the only dissenter in the 4-1
vote; he had previously voiced
concern with housing city staff
and documents in trailers during
hurricane season.
The move is expected to
save the city $35,000 a year in
rent.
+ Approved a development
agreement for Key RV Park
near mile marker 50.5 estab-
lishing redevelopment right to
all the park's 210 units.
Twenty-three mobile homes
were given market-rate resi-
dential rights, 124 permanent


RVs given affordable housing
residential rights and 63 tran-
sient RVs given transient
rights.
The agreement essentially
forgives all code violations,
which had prevented many res-
idents from redeveloping in
the past. Residents also have
the option to purchase the lot
next to them, sell one of the
transferable building rights,
combine the two lots and put
up a new house.
Gross said he believes the
new development agreement
will decrease density in the
park over time.

Managers get certified


But three still
need to complete
FSU courses
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Since 2005, the Key West
City Commission has been pay-
ing the bill for five employees to
enroll in the Certified Public
Manager Program at Florida
State University.
At the graduation ceremony
June 15, just two of the five
employees in the program
received their certification.
The total cost of the educa-
tion for the employees varies
from class to class, said Finance


Director Roger Wittenberg, who
took some of the classes himself.
The bill sent to the city
depends on how many students
attended. Wittenberg could not
specify how much money was
allocated for the classes by press
time.
City Clerk Cheri Smith and
Fire Chief David Fraga passed
all of their exams and papers for
the two-year course.
Roger Wittenberg, Depart-
ment of Transportation Director
Myra Wittenberg and Port
Director Raymond Archer
enrolled, but have yet to finish.
The can take as much time as
needed to finish the courses,
Smith said.
"They got wrapped up in their
jobs," recently retired City
Manager Julio Avael said. "I told
them, 'You need to keep up with
your assignments."'
Avael just returned from
FSU, where he has been teaching
courses on management. The
classes focus on innovation,
motivation, delegation, perform-
ance management and leader-
ship skills, he said.
Fraga said the program pro-
vided him with a clear distinc-


tion of what it means to be a
"manager" and a "leader."
"To complete a two-year
course and meet all of the
requirements... it's a good feel-
ing," he said.
Fraga signed up for the cours-
es by mistake, as he thought they
were strategic management
classes. But it's taught him how
to effectively use his employees'
strengths and focus on improv-
ing their weaknesses.
"It's one the better mistakes
I've made in my life," Fraga said.
Smith said her favorite part of
the program was learning to
encourage a positive atmosphere
in the workplace and reading the
book "Encouraging the Heart,"
which tackles the subject.
She said she tries to motivate
positive ideas everyday in the
City Clerk's Office.
Roger Wittenberg said jug-
gling the CPM classes and over-
seeing the city's finances
became tricky. He missed a cou-
ple classes due to budget obliga-
tions and wasn't able to finish on
time, he said.
The program in which Keys
professionals participated
included eight levels of four
classes a week at the Marathon
Government Center and Key
West's Harvey Government
Center, Avael said. Students
were required to take essay
exams and write various essays.
Professors from FSU like
Dan Vicker and Ben Green of the
Public Administration Depart-
ment taught the courses.
FSU has hosted the program
for 12 years and boasts 500 grad-
uates. Currently, 3,000 students
await graduation.

Harbor Branch


Marine research*
likely to expand
with the move
Miami Herald

Florida taxpayers are about to
acquire a 204-foot research ship,
a pair of submarine pods that dive
more than half-mile under water
and a library of 47,000 sponges
and microorganisms that may
hold cures to cancer.
Harbor Branch
Oceanographic Institute, a
Jacques Cousteau-era wonder-
land about two hours north of
Fort Lauderdale, is merging this
summer with Florida Atlantic
University.
Harbor Branch has kept a rel-
atively low profile outside of
marine-science circles since
1971, when an heir of the
Johnson & Johnson pharmaceuti-
cals fortune teamed with Edwin
Link, the inventor of the flight
simulator, to pursue a passion for
underwater exploration along the
Indian River Lagoon.
Harbor Branch, which does
work in the Keys, may be known
best for its scientists' discovery
of the Challenger shuttle rocket
booster on the ocean floor the
smoking gun that proved a faulty
O-ring caused the 1986 explo-
sion. It's among three organiza-
tions in the nation, and six in the
world, that run manned deep sea
submersible research vehicles
along the ocean floor.
The changing tastes of a new
generation of benefactors, a more
competitive research environ-
ment and two hurricanes forced
the private nonprofit organization
to cut staff last year and consider
selling off some of its 530-acre
Fort Pierce waterfront campus.
But the same day Harbor
Branch board members were
scheduled to hear a pitch from
condominium developers, they
heard a bailout plan hatched by
FAU President Frank Brogan and
state Senate President Ken Pruitt
that would make the institute part
of FAU.
It passed the Legislature, and
Gov. Charlie Crist gave the nod
when he signed the budget May
24.
Harbor Branch will get $44.7
million to repair and rebuild dam-


aged buildings and another $8.5
million a year to operate. The
acquisition helps turn FAU, the
Boca Raton-based public school,
into a more serious research uni-
versity, adding $16 million a year
in grant money and expertise in a
field where Florida is a natural
player.
"The potential, as the com-
mercial says, is priceless," said
Brogan, whose university
extends from an ocean engineer-
ing center in Dania Beach to the
northern border of St. Lucie
County.
Harbor Branch scientists wel-
come the financial stability, albeit
with some anxiety.
"Everybody is like, 'How
exactly is this going to work?'"
said Shirley Pomponi, Harbor
Branch president. She adds that
she and FAU leaders "are all on
the same page."
FAU immediately moves up
the ranks of Florida's major
marine research universities,
which include the University of
Miami, Florida State University
and the University of South
Florida.
"It's going to rearrange the
furniture," said John Ogden,
director of the Florida Institute of
Oceanography, a consortium of
21 research organizations.
"There'll be some tensions [but] I
think this is healthy for the state."
Research, economic develop-
ment and environmental preser-
vation are the primary drivers in
the deal, but it also promises to
expand opportunities for stu-
dents.
Harbor-Branch trains a couple
dozen interns and post-doctoral
scientists looking to cut their
teeth in the world of government-
sponsored research. Eight or
more undergraduates from FAU
also participate in a Semester at
Sea program that lets them live
on campus.
"My classmates and I were
isolated from everything else and
were really given a chance to
explore deep into our chosen
field," said Dan DeMarino, an
FAU student from Farmingdale,
N.J., who attended in spring.
Larry Lemanski, FAU vice
president for research, expects
Harbor Branch to become "a
very, very popular program."

Simpson services


tentatively set


He spent career
dedicated to
Sheriff's Office

Funeral services for George
Simpson, who died Monday fol-
lowing a 24-year career with the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office,
have been tentatively set for 11
a.m. June 30 at San Pablo
Catholic Church, Marathon.
"I worked with George here at
the Sheriff's Office during his
entire career," Sheriff Rick Roth
said. "He was an important part
of our law enforcement family.
Our thoughts are now with his
wife, Deborah, who is also a
long-time employee with the
Sheriff's Office. The two of them
have dedicated many years to
serving the citizens of Monroe
County andall of us who worked
with George will miss him very
much."
Mr. Simpson, 65, retired in
2003 as a captain. He had worked
in numerous positions in the law
enforcement agency and returned
the following year as a court-
house deputy and reserve lieu-
tenant. He also was a crossing


guard at
Stanley
S witli k
Elementary
School in
Marathon.
In 1979,
then-Sheriff
Wi lliam

SIMPSON Freeman Jr.
hired Mr. Simpson as a part-time
corrections officer. -He quickly
transferred to road patrol and
worked his way up the ranks, fill-
ing positions as corporal, ser-
geant, detective sergeant, lieu-
tenant and captain.
Most of his years with the
Sheriff's Office were spent work-
ing in the Marathon area,
although he also worked in the
Lower Keys and in the Special
Investigations Division.
In addition, he was the traffic
coordinator for numerous events
such. as the Seven Mile Bridge
Run and Pigeon Key Art Festival.
He also was a long-time board
member of the Monroe County
Domestic Abuse Shelter and was
active in the Marathon Rotary.


Wilson's sounds
recorded when.
she was born
Associated Press

Despite last week's loss of a
newborn dolphin calf in Key
Largo, a marine mammal
acoustic researcher said Sunday
the ability to record sounds ema-
nating from the calf as it was
born may provide new insight
into dolphin communications.
"We have his first sounds,
which took place about two sec-
onds after birth," said Jack
Kassewitz of www.Speak
Dolphin.com.
Before that, scientists had
wondered whether dolphins took
a long time to learn sound and


echo location or whether they
were hardwired at birth.
The calf was born June 11 to
a deaf Atlantic bottlenose dol-
phin named Castaway. After it
died Friday, volunteers at the
Marine Mammal Conservancy
named it Wilson after actor Tom
Hanks' volleyball companion in
the 2000 motion picture Cast
Away.
Kassewitz believes it is the
first time an infant's sounds have
been recorded in an isolated
environment without multiple
dolphins present.
"With Wilson we can now see
exactly how the first parts of lan-
guage in dolphins exist," he said.
Preliminary necropsy find-
ings did not reveal the cause of
Wilson's death.

Congress takes on spyware


But there's some
disagreement over
how to fight it
McClatchy Tribune

Imagine a burglar with the key
to your house and the code to turn
off your alarm system, making it
easy to steal from you without
you knowing anything happened.
That could be happening on
your computer right now.
Experts warn that unseen
cyber-thieves use aptly named


spyware programs to snoop
around computers, farming per-
sonal data and passwords and
tracing every keystroke users
make.
Some members of Congress
are trying to beef up laws against
cyber-snooping, but critics say
the proposals may go too far.
Few disagree about spyware's
potential for damage.
"There is a huge continuum of
harm that can be caused," said
Rick Quaresima of the Federal
Trade Commission, "from a nui-


sance and annoyance to major
identity theft issues. That's the
real danger."
Unwanted spyware programs
furtively monitor and record per-
sonal behavior on the Internet,
and they can clog a computer's
arteries, grinding its processing
speed to a plodding pace.
Spyware can get into a computer
in many ways, often secretly
downloading when users are
installing other software online.
Spyware itself is not illegal,
but is often used for illegal pur-

Clip money from your gas bill


Card companies
offer rebates
on your fuel
McClatchy Tribune

Gasoline prices are averag-
ing around $3 a gallon nation-
wide, making the idea of getting
a few of those dollars back -
even if it's just $10 a month -
an enticing one.
Several credit cards offer to
reimburse customers for 2 per-
cent to 6 percent of the dollars


charged on the card for gaso-
line. Depending on the card, the
money can show up as a credit
against monthly charges, get
deposited to a bank or sent as a
check.
A key part of choosing one
of these cards is finding out
how easy it is to redeem rebates
and whether they have limits.
The cards advertising the
highest rebates generally flag
steep introductory rebates, even
up to 10 percent of gasoline
purchases, before rates drop to


half that level. Some of the
biggest gasoline-station opera-
tors also offer higher rebate
rates. The catch is that you must
buy gasoline at their branded
stations.,
Most cards do not have an
annual fee. And one new card,
from Citibank, offers to reim-
burse cardholders not just for
the gas but for the miles they
drive based on reported odome-
ter readings.
Of course, the rapid rise in

SPYWARE / From 13

poses. Both the Justice
Department and the FTC have
the authority to pursue spyware
purveyors. At least 10 states,
mostly in the West, have anti-
spyware laws on the books.
The House recently passed
two bills to further discourage
spying.
The so-called Spy Act, which
received an overwhelming 368-
48 vote of approval, has gained
more attention for its broader
focus. Primarily, it would arm
consumers with additional tools
to ward off spyware.
The bill requires:
A user to consent before
receiving downloaded spyware.
+ Making all spyware pro-
grams easy to delete.
+ Stiffer fines of up to $3 mil-
lion for anyone violating parts of
the act; the current maximum fine
is $11,000 for each spyware-
related offense.
Critics, including many
Internet companies and online
advertisers, objected over con-
cers that the bill is too broad,
especially in a field with new tech-
nologies constantly cropping up.
Critics also worry that Internet
features such as "cookies" will be
adversely affected, despite
exemptions in the bill. Cookies
are online nametags stored on
computers to help Web sites
remember the users and their
information when they visit.


The current law


Under current law:
The Federal Trade
Commission and the Justice
Department can pursue sp\-
s are pur eyors, mainly
through the Computer Fraud
and Abuse Act.
The FTC has successfully
sued people and companies
h ho have disseminated spy-
\ are. making them pa\ fines of
up to $11.000 per offense.
The Justice Department
can file criminal charges for
distributing spyware as part of
computer "fraud" or "abuse."
Stale attorneys general can typ-
ically pursue ci\ il, not cnniinal,
charges.
The proposed Spy Act:
Primarily focuses on cre-
ating ne\% regulations aiming to
protect computer users from

SThey can also help advertisers
target their messages.
SReps. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.,
voted against the Spy Act, saying
.the bill over-regulates the issues.
He prefers a separate bill with
a narrower, judicial focus that
passed the House last month.
That bill, named the I-SPY Act,
creates spyware-related criminal
offenses.
The legislation also raises
maximum prison sentences to
five years for the various spy-


unwanted spyware.
Arms the FTC to levy
ci\ il penalties of up to $3 mil-
lion, significantly more than the
current maximum: $11,000 per
offense.
The proposed I-SPY Act:
+ Creates a new section of
criminal code specifying spy-
, are-related crimes.
Toughens penalties for
existing criminal offenses by
lengthening maximum prison
sentences and increasing fines.
Gives the Justice
Department an additional $10
million each year to prosecute
spy'a are-based offenses.

Congressional offices.



ware-based charges, and gives an
extra $10 million a year to the
Justice Department to prosecute
spyware abusers "without threat-
ening legitimate businesses," said
Blunt spokeswoman Burson
Snyder.
Spyware can bombard people
with pesky pop-up ads while they
surf the Web. It can even cause
computers to crash.
But hackers, for whom spy-
ware is a key tool, can do far
greater damage.


The Discover Open Road
Card, a product of Morgan
Stanley unit Discover Financial
Services, offers 5 percent cash
back on gas and auto-mainte-
nance purchases. Cardholders
can redeem this refund in incre-
ments of $20. Borrowers must
tell Discover how they want to
get that money, including by
check, credited to the monthly
statement, deposited into an
account or rolled into a gift card
where the cash may be doubled.
The catch? Discover has set
a limit of $100 a month on gas
and auto purchases eligible for
the 5 percent rebate, which
means cardholders can't get
more than a $5 rebate per month
at that rate. After reaching the
cap, borrowers receive a rebate
at the standard 1 percent.


CREDIT CARDS / From 13

means consumers can sign up to
earn various freebies, from fre-
quent-flier miles to Disney
World tickets to baseball jer-
seys, for every card swipe.
If you have your heart set on
saving points toward a trip to
Bali, racking up air miles from
gas purchases might make more
sense than a cash rebate.
But if your first aim is to cut
your gas bill, cards that return
cash for those purchases can
chip away at this monthly
expense.
Gas purchases constitute a
sizeable expense for most
Americans. During the last
week of May, when gasoline
prices reached a national aver-


age $3.20 a gallon, the average
consumer spent about $65 to fill
up the car for the week, esti-
mates the Government
Accountability Office. That's
$260 a month.
In general, gas rebate cards
often carry higher rebate incen-
tives than generic cash-back
cards that refund the borrower
for a percent of all purchases,
gas or otherwise. The standard
for these general cash-back
cards is 1 percent.
For instance, J.P. -Morgan
Chase's Chase PerfectCard
MasterCard refunds up to 3 per-
cent on purchases at gasoline
stations worth up to $500 a
month, or a refund of up to $15
a month. Cardholders can earn
1 percent for a limitless amount
of purchases everywhere else.

All-star Little League teams
from Marathon and the Upper
Keys face a seven-game sched-
ule played over two weeks as the
Age 9-10 district tournament
opens Friday in Miami-Dade
County.
All games in the District 8
tournament will be played at the
new Doral Field complex or the
Miami Springs Rec Center.
"We won't have any [Little
League] tournament games in
the Keys this year," Upper Keys
district representative Marilyn
Beyer said. "That was not a deci-
sion made here."
Key Largo Community Park
has hosted several age-group
tournaments in recent years.
Each of the eight district
teams in the Age 9-10 group will
play each other between Friday
and July 6. Marathon plays the
Upper Keys in the final round, at
7 p.m. July 6 in Miami Springs.

Four Eagles three of them
named Izaguirre won Class

Key West High School had
three Conchs tapped for honor-
able mention on the Class 4A
honors squad.


Class 1A
Sophomore Aaron Izaguirre
was named to the second team
of the 1A all-state club. Picked
as an outfielder, he returns after
an honorable-mention season in
2006.
Izaguirre was the top pitcher
for the Eagles in an 8-8 season
and Coach Tony Hammon's
best long-ball hitter.
Matthew Izaguirre, a junior
first baseman, was named third-


team utility player.
Two ICS freshmen, catcher
Lorenzo Arce and shortstop
Phillip Izaguirre, received hon-
orable mention.

Marathon looks to veterans


Majors' team
brings wealth
of experience
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The road to Williamsport,
Pa., and the Little League
World Series begins June 29
for Keys 11- and 12-year-olds
at the District 8 tournament in
Doral and Miami Springs.
Nine- and 10-year-olds will


play their own seven-game
tournament beginning this
Friday with a game against
Miami Springs at 7 p.m. Only
major-leaguers (11- and 12-
year-olds) have the opportunity
to advance to regionals and
beyond.
Last year's teams struggled
against Miami squads drawing
from a much larger pool of
kids, but Marathon Little
League President Adam Pierce
said he feels this year's teams


will be much more competi-
tive.
"Last year was a rebuilding
year for us on both sides....
They were young and inexperi-
enced," Pierce said. "This year
we should be pretty good. The
11- and 12-year-olds are what I
call a bunch of seniors; they've
been in the league three or
more years and they're ready to
go."
Pierce said Marathon com-

Veteran roster for Upper Keys


UPPER KEYS / From 20

to a playoff bracket beginning
July 9.
The Upper Keys opens the
tournament at 7 p.m. Friday
against Doral at Doral Field.
"We've been having good
practices when the rain lets us
practice. We've had to cancel a
couple sessions," coach Jason
Richards said. "We're still work-
ing out the positions and the line-
ups, but I think it's all coming
together."
Hunter Anderson and Brian
Cash return as Upper Keys all-
stars after playing with the 2006
squad in the same age group.
Both have spots in the Upper
Keys pitching rotation, along
with Cody Richards and Dylan
Beckwith. Joe Catarineau coach-
es the Upper Keys pitchers.
Jason Richards coached the
Cardinals team that won the
Upper Keys Minors champi-
onship in the regular season. Jay
Cummings and Charles Mather
also join the Upper Keys All-Star
coaching staff.
"A big change is that in our
regular season, a runner could.
not steal home on a passed ball
or wild pitch," Richards said.
"Since you can in the tourna-
ment, we're working with our
catchers on how to block pitches
and block the plate."
Anderson takes the critical
catcher's spot when not pitching.
The roster also includes first-
year all-stars Jake Beaty, Dylan
Beckwith, Ben Colmes, Corey
Cummings, Pookie Del Pino,
Jack Hatfield, Bryce Lankford,
Robert Mather, Eddy Quezada,
Cody Richards, Ian Thomson
and Tuck Wood.
"We've got a lot of good hit-
ters," Richards said. "We'll be
working on our lineups right up
until the last minute. It's the first
tournament for most of us, so we
don't know what to expect."
Last year, the Upper Keys
team in the 9-10 group went 3-1
in pool play but did not advance
to the playoffs due to a runs-
scored tiebreaker.

Pitching will be critical to victory


MARATHON / From 20

of 116 players, while "a place
like Kendall-Hammocks ... they
pick from 25,000."
Minor-league head coach
Rodney Bonilla said the team
should do well if they see an
improvement in pitching.
"A lot of times it depends on
pitching in this little division,"
Bonilla said. "Even the big hit-
ters don't drive it that far."
Bonilla said Kyle Pierce and
Carlos O' Farrill will do most of
the pitching, but players are only
allowed to throw 75 pitches per
game before being replaced.
On the majors' side, head
coach Spook Roussin said pitch-
ing is the team's biggest strength
and the team should be compet-
itive thanks to a deep staff.
"We don't have any rocket-
throwers like some of the teams
you face," Roussin said, "but
we've got kids that can throw
strikes and hopefully let the
defense play the .way they're
supposed to."
Roussin said the team will
lean heavily on the play of
Clinton Rodamer and Yoniel

Roussin also praised the
efforts of Josue Napoles, a new-
comer to the team from Cape


Coral via Cuba.
"He's got some of the best
hands I've ever seen on a Little

talented little kid and he gives
everything he's got."

son, makes his second straight

outfielder but usually plays
first, the position he is expected
to play in junior college.
Junior Chris Noble was
picked for the third-team pitch-
ing rotation after leading the
Cane staff in 2007. Noble also
is a top hitter and reliable third
baseman.

ior outfielder, pitcher and long-

able mention.

big-game pitcher for the past

Slammer dolphin such as this 57.3-pounder, caught last week by Bud Ellis of Safety Harbor, his
daughter Megan her boyfriend Kenneth Bartenfeld aboard the 'Natural' with Capt. Reece
Lewis, haven't been the norm lately. But as the weather gets hotter and do does the water, it
should pick up.



Krieger laps the field


42.7-pounder wins
the Lower Keys
dolphin tourney

So many fishing tournaments
in the Keys lately, where to
start?
The 14th annual Big Pine
and Lower Keys Dolphin
Tournament over the weekend
fielded 202 anglers fishing
aboard 71 boats who braved
numerous thunderstorms over
the two-day event.
Leading up to the outing,
dolphin fishing offshore had
gone from slammer and gaffer
fish (20 to 40 pounds) two
weeks ago to a mere trickle of
peanuts and sub-legal fish.
Those who would find big fish
would have to search for debris
that commonly hold larger fish
or working frigate birds, which
normally are the offshore fish-
erman's best fish finder.
When the dust settled at the
weigh station Sunday afternoon
at the Sugarloaf KOA, the win-
ning fish steadied the scales at
42.7 pounds, netting angler


a Steven
Krieger
from Big
S Pine a
check for
S$3,400.
Krieger
was fish-
ing aboard
the Finer
SLines.
A 1
though
only a few
Cal Sutphin large fish
w e r e
found, Krieger's fish literally
lapped the field, with the sec-
ond-place dolphin weighing
roughly 10 pounds lighter at
33.3 pounds. That fish and a
$1,700 award were secured by.
angler Teague Skaggs, also
from Big Pine, fishing aboard
the Loan Shark. Another Big
Piner, Wade Graft, got third on
the Hornet with a 28.5-pound
dolphin.
Cash awards were given to
the Top 10 anglers weighing in
dolphin. Prizes also went to jun-
ior anglers, ladies and for heav-
iest wahoo and blackfin tuna.


Proceeds from the tourna-
ment benefit the Lower Keys
Chamber of Commerce. For a

The Southernmost Swordfish
Tournament hosted by the Key
West Fishing Tournament was
scheduled for Saturday night.
But a wise decision by director
Doris Harris canceled the out-
ing, which has been resched-
uled for June 30 due to a dan-
gerous line of storms that rolled
across the Florida Straits late
Saturday afternoon right before
lines in at 7 p.m.
The reason I say smart deci-
sion is that the team that invited
me along, Capt. Rob Harris and
Capt. Joe Messer aboard the
Easy Rider out of the King's
Pointe Marina on Stock Island,
decided to go out and swordfish
anyway and it got pretty
hairy out there.

Ballyhoo scarce,


but successful if you find it


Offshore angling
is in its prime
for summertime

Summer officially arrives
Thursday, and we are into some
of the finest summer fishing we
can have.
Great tarpon fishing still
abounds, both on the flats and
around the bridge channels. Most
of the day will produce action in
one venue or the other. In fact, the
flats themselves are alive with all
types of activity.
As for offshore, I have a few
tips.
First, fresh ballyhoo has
become scarce in most areas.
They have been available at times
but it has been day to day for
good ones. You may want to get
some while they are fresh, rig
them, salt them good and pack
them in the freezer if you are not
going to use them very soon.
These will be much better than
trying to rig those that have
already been frozen as they do
not hold up nearly as well.
Many anglers also like bally-
hoo for cut bait for schoolies
around the boat. I used to but now
I use the belly meat fromnprevi-
ous dolphin I have salted and
stored in the freezer. I also use
salted frozen pilchards and my
favorite, live pinfish.
I like these because there is
hardly a fish that swims that
won't hit a live bait, even those
that won't hit anything else. It is
like they take offense to that little
fish swimming in their proximity.
Live pilchards work just as well
except they are much harder to
catch and keep alive. Pinfish are
known as the Timex of bait fish.
This is also a good thing to
have when you find that obstruc-
tion floating such as a board, pal-
let or even a large weed patch.
Hook a live pinfish on a spin-
ner with a wire leader and toss
him in. He doesn't know he is in
very deep water; all he knows is
that he wants to get to the bottom.
Give him some time to head
down with the bail open and
watch for it to start whipping off.
If that happens, pick it up, lock it
up and have your way.
When this gets a hit, it is usu-
ally a wahoo or a large dolphin


Ca ain's that was
u. not attract-
ed to the
surface. I
can tell you
that this
-has worked
for more
times than
not.
Another
thing to
remember
is that
Dave Navarro when you
hook a big
fish and are fighting it toward the
boat, you may see another one
traveling right along side of it. If
you wait until you get the one on
the boat or even boat the fish
prior to attempting to hook the
other fish, odds are it won't bite.
I have found that if you shoot
bait to it while the hooked fish is
still atrleast 20 feet from the boat,
that following fish will not hesi-
tate to nail the bait presented.
This may cause a bitmore confu-
sion but the excitement and chal-
lenge will more than make up
for it.
Another little tip: Use a good-
quality circle hook for the second
fish and your odds of losing it are
greatly reduced. Then you can
concentrate on the original fish,
getting it in the boat before hav-
ing to mess with the second fish
too much.
(If the second fish is a dam
site bigger than the first, I would
say the heck with the little guy
and work the big one for brag-
ging rights, if nothing else.)
If there is an easterly breeze,
you will notice it without ques-
tion, as the wave action picks up
against the current when you hit
the Gulf Stream. Usually there is
also a weed line along this edge,
plus more beyond it. Birds will be
working the area if fish are plen-
tiful.
I prefer to use Billy Baits and
do a high-speed troll to cover
more ground and get to these
areas faster while not missing any
opportunity on the way.
If you think you are going to
outrun the fish, the only one you
are fooling is yourself.
I usually put the lures in
around 100 feet of water and troll
the rest of the day, wherever I go.
You would be amazed how many


fish are in waters you would not
think. If you have a line in the
water, you have a chance.
But if you are just running all
over the place looking, your only
hope is if one jumps in the boat,
which isn't going to happen.
The last thing I can tell you
about offshore fishing is that it
has not been red hot for everyone.
You have to remember that it
is an awfully big ocean and there
are plenty of places for the fish to
be. Still, there have been several
boats that have had outstanding
days and many exceptional catch-
es. I have heard of good catches
early inside 5 miles from the reef,
with others stating they have had
their way with nice fish 20 miles
out both early and late in the day.
The key to offshore is to cover
ground and find what you can.
Always be ready for action
because you never know when it
is going to happen.

World Class Angler in Marathon
and captains the charter boat
'Dave's Dream.

boat that can easily handle any
inclement weather, but with the
many center-console boats par-
ticipating in this tournament,
the right decision to delay was
made. That bodes well for
anglers who now have a week
and a half to get involved. Go to
www.keywestfishingtourna
ment.com for complete infor-


mation.
By the way, the swordfishing
was stellar and what an unbe-
lievably hard-fighting fish.



Dolphin continued to be the
word with 118 anglers, fishing
for the $5,000 grand prize as
well as a Pasta Pantaleo art
original, took to the waters off
the Upper Keys in the third
annual Island Grill Charity
Dolphin Tournament. Proceeds
benefited the Baptist Children's
Hospital's Cancer Center.
Again, weather may have
been a factor in keeping some
anglers from participating, but
the hearty that did dodge the
numerous thunderstorms even-
tually found fish, although the
huge slammers were few and
far between.
The format for this tourna-
ment is a three-fish aggregate,
which in a nutshell means your
three heaviest fish total is -your
score. But it is mandatory that
your have three legal fish to
weigh.
Team Yank Um weighed in
the heaviest three dolphin for a
respectable 45.2 pounds, which
led the 44 teams competing.
Team Yank Um consists of
anglers Sue Realman and Peter
Valliere, both from Tavernier;
Dave Brasher and Francine
Perry, both from Weston; and
John Lewis of Pompano Beach.


Second place and a check for
$1,000 went to Jose Lopez from
Miami and Ray Perez from Key
Largo aboard the Top Fin with a
three fish total of 38.4 pounds.
The third-place winner really
racked up the accolades not
only with the finish, but also
winning charterboat grand
champion and most unusual
catch trophies.
The trifecta was awarded to
the Reel McCoy fishing out of
Bud 'N Mary's Marina in
Islamorada. Anglers Woody
Long, Jim Grose, Jimmy
Dudley and Robert Kile, all
from Georgia, as well as Capt.
Ryan Rea and mate Conan
Yates, were the hard-working
crew that weighed in a three-
fish catch of 38.0 pounds.
The most unusual catch was
a tripletail found hanging on
some debris offshore for team
Reel McCoy.
The close call story if the
tournament went to the Junior
Angler Champion winner.
As time was winding down
and with 30 seconds until the
scales closed, Kade Peterson's
father drove in the parking lot at
the Watermark Marina, the
weigh station for the touma-
ment, with a large mahi-mahi in
tow.
Both Kade and dad ran to the
scales with the winning junior
fish weighing 16.8 pounds, with
not a second to spare to secure
Kade's championship.
