But it's designed
to increase
storm mitigation
By DAVID HAWKINS
dhawkins@keysreporter.com

A law designed to reduce
storm damage and insurance
costs has also tightened require-
ments for home insurance poli-
cies issued by Florida's state-run
insurance company.
Under the law, homes that
lack protection like hurricane
shutters, and homes valued over
$1 million may lose coverage
from Citizens Property Insurance
Corp.
Trying to keep down hurri-
cane damage costs, Florida's
Legislature in May passed the bill


expanding a pilot damage-miti-
gation program that offers
inspections and reimbursement
for Floridians who add protection
against hurricane damage.
That law also limits who is eli-
gible for the expanded program,
and adds new requirements for
home insurance. policies issued
by Citizens Property Insurance
Corp., the only source of storm
insurance for many homes and
businesses in Florida and
especially the Keys..
The law says that after July 1,
a dwelling with a replacement
cost of $1 million or more "is not
eligible for coverage" by
Citizens.
Also, any residential structure

Castaway, the deaf bottlenose
dolphin that garnered national
attention during her pregnancy,
should take up permanent resi-
dence at Dolphins Plus in Key
Largo by Monday, says the
National Marine Fisheries
Service.
The offshore dolphin "needs
socialization" with other dol-
phins, William T. Hogarth, the
service's assistant administrator
for fisheries, wrote in a June 25
letter.
Castaway "must be moved as
soon as possible to a public dis-
play facility" at Dolphins Plus by


July 2, Hogarth said.
The Marine Mammal
Conservancy that tended .to
Castaway during her pregnancy
and delivery this month is not
authorized to permanently house
marine mammals, Hogarth wrote.
Officials at Dolphins Plus
could not be'reached for com-
ment at press time.
Castaway stranded at
Castaway Cove, near Vero
Beach, in November. After initial
rehabilitation efforts in Sarasota,
a release attempt failed.
Castaway was brought to the
Marine Mammal Conservancy,
also in Key Largo, for extended
care during her pregnancy.


She gave birth to a male calf
June 11. The calf, nicknamed
Wilson, died June 15..
National news crews came to
Key Largo to show how volun-
teers broadcast underwater dol-
phin sounds from Dolphins Plus to
the Marine Mammal Conservancy
site since the deaf mother could
not interact with the calf.
"While we understand that
members of the public are likely
to view Castaway at any given
time from the adjacent motel
property, we again request that
MMC avoid engaging in activi-
ties that appear to be a show,
demonstration, or interactive
swim program typically associat-
ed with a public display facility,"
Hogarth wrote.

seized during a Colorado drug
raid.
"The Denver Police
Department was going to put
them down if [Fitzgerald] did-
n't find a place for them or take
them himself," Selander said of
the alligators.
One alligator was found
slaughtered at the home by
police, and Fitzgerald told
Selander police believed the
remaining three would have
been killed as well for their
skin.
So Fitzgerald built individ-
ual crates for the animals and
shipped them to the Keys via
Delta Airlines. Selander says
the alligators caused quite a stir
at the airport when she went to
go pick them up.
"It was funny, people saw
the crates and were asking what
was inside," she joked.
Selander said the new"
arrivals are approximately one,
two and three feet long respec-
tively.
Since smaller alligators are
sometimes cannibalized by
larger ones, Selander said the
largest of the three has been
placed in a separate enclosure
"out in the open with grass and
little plants and a pond."
Being in the airplane cooled
the alligators down, which
Selander said made them docile
and much easier to handle upon

their arrival. She said the ani-
mals have already taken a liking
to their new surroundings.
"They look wonderful," she
said, "and now that they're in
the Florida heat they're really
active."
On the second and fourth
Sunday of every month, from 1
to 3 p.m., the. Animal Park is
open to the public and Selander
says the smaller two alligators
may be able to be handled by
children on petting zoo days.
"It'll be neat for them to see
what an alligator feels like," she
said.
Selander said the alligators


are not slated for release and
that she hopes to have them at
the farm for several years.
The Animal Park started in
1994 in an open area under-
neath the jail facility, which sits
on stilts roughly 11 feet off the
ground.
According to the Sheriff's
Office Web site, the first official
inhabitants of the park were
Muscovy ducks and chickens.
But when the Miami Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals called and asked if
they could take in a blind horse
found roaming the area, the ani-
mal farm was officially born.

Marathon, KCB
try to reach'
deal on service
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Members of both the
Marathon and Key Colony Beach
city councils are scheduled to
meet this morning to discuss the
terms of a fire contract between
the two cities that Key Colony
Beach Mayor Clyde Burnett
called "oppressive and unaccept-
able" during a June 5 special
meeting at the Sheriff's Offices
airport hangar in Marathon.
Key Colony Beach contracts
with Marathon for fire and rescue
service, but Bumett said he feels
Marathon is requiring too large a
fee for the amount of service
received.
"We're trying to get them to
understand our position," Burnett
said. "As Marathon grows, our
service-call percentage will con-
tinue to go down. We've only had
two working fires on Key Colony
Beach in 20 years. What they feel
is fair and reasonable might be
different than what we do, and
that's what we need to get to."
Last year, Key Colony accept-
ed only a one-year contract with
Marathon in order to re-address
its fee as soon as possible.
Burnett said Key Colony officials
reached an agreement with


Marathon city staff, but the
Marathon council requested they
pay an additional $60,000, for a
total of $365,000.
The agreement was based on
taxable land value, which Bumett
said Marathon officials maintain
should be the standard by which a
fee is established.
At that rate, Key Colony
Beach pays nearly one quarter of
the bill.
Burnett said he would like the
fee to be based on building values
only. That figure would equate to
between 15 and 18 percent, he
said.
"We're 8 percent of the popu-
lation and our use is about 5 per-
cent of their total service calls for
either fire or rescue," Bumett
said. "We're trying to say be rea-
sonable."
Marathon Mayor Chris Bull
said he only wants for Key
Colony Beach to "pay their equi-
table share" of the cost and that
he is glad the two sides have the
opportunity to meet face to face
and come to a decision.
"This way everybody is there
in one room, and we can hash it
out and move on," Bull said.
No matter what happens, both
sides said the ultimate goal will
be to establish a long-term con-
tract.
This morning's meeting is at 9
a.m. at the Marathon Garden
Club.

Under the proposal, the six-

insured for $750,000 or more is
not eligible for Citizens coverage
"unless the structure has opening
protections as required under the
Florida Building Code for a
newly constructed residential
structure in that area."
The. Hurricane Damage
Mitigation Act became law when
Gov. Charlie Crist signed it June
12. The bill passed 90-28 in the
House and 39-0 in the Senate.
Heather Carruthers, a director
of grassroots group Fair
Insurance Rates for Monroe and
on state panel looking at
Citizens' payouts, said some pro-
visions are disappointing.
"I think a lot of this was writ-
ten because a lot of coastal areas
do not build to the same code
standards that we do," Carruthers
said. "I think ultimately it will
benefit all Florida if people in the
Panhandle stop building match-
stick houses. We need to find a
way to help them do that."
The law renames the damage-
mitigation program My Safe
Florida Home. It continues free
inspections for owners with
homestead .exemptions, and

owner spends, up to $10,000, on
protection such as shutters and
bracing for gable ends.
But the new law eliminates
residential structures with two to
four units from the mitigation
program. It also excludes homes
insured for more than $300,000.
The maximum value was
$500,000 in the pilot program.
Homeowners can no longer
get reimbursed for the cost of
improving roof deck attachment,
roof coverings, or roof-to-wall
reinforcement, the new law says.
Carruthers said, "The thing
that I'm a little a little disappoint-
ed about is the loss of being able
to do other kinds of wind brac-
ing."
She said FIRM will look at the
limit on Citizens insuring homes
worth more than $1 million. She
said she was "a little distressed"
that only homes worth $300,000
and less can be in the mitigation
program.
State Rep. Ron Saunders, D-
Key West, voted for the law, even
though Keys homeowners "may
not love every provision," of it,
he said.

around as much as possible,
Saunders said. The new law is
"either really good for you or it's
not."
Making sure homes can with-
stand storms is important for
keeping insurance available in
Florida, he said.
Saunders said Keys residents
pay more than their fair share for
insurance, because "we've had
the highest insurance rates but
have had the strictest building
code."
In addition to excluding non-
homestead and multi-unit build-
ings, the mitigation program now
excludes homes built after March
1, 2002, according to Brannon
Jordan, a spokeswoman for
Florida Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink, whose Department of
Financial Services oversees the
program.
Data provided by the Monroe
County Property Appraiser's
Office show there are 1,947
duplexes in Monroe County, 273
triplexes and 272 four-unit resi-
dential buildings. Of the single-
family homes in the county,
15,621 have homestead exemp-
tions, and almost the same num-
ber 15,233 do not.
Apartments, condominiums,
mobile homes and business struc-
tures were excluded from the
start of the mitigation program.
Contractors have done more
than 50,000 Florida home inspec-
tions under the program, accord-
ing to Sink's office.
In the Keys, 168 inspections
have been completed out of 445
applications. As of this week, 42
Keys homeowners have been
approved for reimbursement of
hurricane protection expenses,
Jordan said.
The law says the Legislature
wants My Safe Florida Home to
inspect at least 400,000 single-
family homes and give grants to
at least 35,000 homeowners
before Julv 2009.

Singh steps into Manor talks


Developer, city,
School Board
could partner
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

At a June 20 meeting intend-
ed to center around affordable
housing components in his
development agreements with
the city of Marathon, real estate
developer Pritam Singh and sev-
eral local officials spent a
majority of their time discussing
the future of Marathon Manor.
Singh told Marathon City
Councilman Don Vasil and oth-
ers that he would be willing to
help the Monroe County School
Board convert the former nurs-
ing, home into affordable hous-
ing "not for profit ... just to
make it work."
Board member John Dick,
who attended the meeting at
Tranquility Bay near mile mark-
er 48, told Singh the original
goal for the property was "just
that [Marathon. High School]
would get some of the property


to use for [athletic fields] and
then it was going to be put into
workforce housing."
Singh suggested pursuing the
project as a nonprofit venture
with the School Board as a part-
ner.
"The goal is X months from
now having people living there
who are getting up in the morn-
ing and going to work," Singh
said. "Workforce housing is
going to produce income, it's
not like the people living there
pay nothing.
"[Affordable housing] is a
crisis that goes way beyond our
individual concerns," he contin-
ued. "If we don't deal with this
problem long term, our econom-
ic problems are just beginning."
On Aug. 18, 2005, the School
Board voted to purchase the 7-
acre property adjacent to the
Marathon Middle and High
School for no more that $7.4
million.
But after Cay Clubs Resorts

City wants input
on port's future


The city of Key West is in the
process of developing a port mas-
ter plan and wants resident input.
The plan will be a broad
waterfront plan with guiding
policies and criteria for the city's
waterfront. It will address exist-
ing needs and capacity shortfalls.
The first step is to gather
information from those who use
the waterfront and are most
knowledgeable. To do that, the
city has created questionnaires
that provide the initial informa-
tion needed to start the process.
The questionnaires are avail-
able on the city's Web site,
www.keywestcity.com under
"Port Operations/Port Advisory
Board/Additional Information."
Copies can also be obtained at
the Port Operations Office at 3
East Quay Road, Key West. Any
questions, call 809-3790.
Completed questionnaires
should be mailed to Port
Operations, P.O. Box 6434, Key

Crist signs off
on Adam Arnold Law

Drunk drivers who kill some-
one in an accident and leave the
scene will face more severe pun-
ishment under a law Gov. Charlie
Crist signed June 20.
Crist was joined for the bill-
signing ceremony by the parents
of Adam Arnold of Key West,
who was 16 when he was killed
in the Southernmost City in 1996
by a drunken driver who fled the
scene. The bill (HB 25) was
named for Adam.
Drunken drivers who leave
the scene of an accident in which
someone dies would have to go
to a prison for a minimum of two
years under the new law.
"The boy that killed my son
literally got three years' proba-
tion," Doris Arnold said. "This
obviously won't help Adam, but
it will help others because hit-
and-run happens every day. This
will help to at least bring some
sort of penalty."

erty, the School Board has been
trying to figure out the best way
to utilize the property.
Cay Clubs had intended to
develop the property into a 65-
unit affordable housing complex
after donating a portion of the
land back to the high school.
Board member Steven
Pribramsky said he would like
to move on the manor quickly,
but recommends caution after
being spumed by Cay Clubs.
The board is currently await-
ing clarification from the state
Department of Community
Affairs as to how many transient
licenses the property will be
allotted.
"I welcome doing business
with anyone, but it has to be a
good deal for the School
Board," Pribramsky told the
Keynoter regarding Singh's pro-
posal.
Board member Debra Walker
said she'd be willing to listen to
any proposals that would help
move the manor along, but
noted that "any proposal we
have requested must be a zero
dollar investment from the
school district."
According to Pribramsky,
Marathon Planning Director
Fred Gross on Tuesday
addressed a group of School
Board, county and Marathon
city officials regarding the sta-
tus of Marathon Manor.

Opinion


Keys still bear

insurance brunt

So if you came away thinking the special legislative session on
tax relief did very little to help Keys homeowners, now you can
add windstorm insurance relief to your list of disappointments.
In today's Keynoter, you'll learn some surprising details about
the Hurricane Damage Mitigation Act, which became law with
Gov. Charlie Crist's signature this month.
Among the surprises:
+ Reimbursement for homeowners who install damage-miti-
gation improvements like shutters and bracing, a $10,000 incen-
tive last year, now excludes any homes insured for more than
$300,000. It was $500,000 before this year's special session.
Duplexes and four-plexes, which qualified for the reim-
bursement program last year, need no longer apply. Nada, zip for
you.
Citizens Property Insurance Corp.'s windstorm policies,
which represent virtually the only insurance available in the
Keys, will now exclude any homes $1 million and up.
There are other little wrinkles in the law clearly drafted to
appease some North Florida lawmakers, who have been opposed
to expanding the state's role as insurer of last resort.
But owners living in coastal counties are really left holding the
bag.
Heather Carruthers, who serves on the seven-member,
statewide Task Force on Citizens Property Insurance Claims
Handling and Resolutions, summed up the irony nicely:
"Ultimately, it will benefit all Florida if people in the
Panhandle stop building matchstick houses."
Until then, if you own a home in the Keys, you can expect to
keep paying higher insurance rates and get little help from the
state to harden your house against future storm damage.

Some good news for tourism

Amid a lot of wringing of hands over tourism prospects for
this year comes some welcome news.
Miami Herald business reporter Douglas Hanks, who covers
tourism among other key Florida industries, reported in these
pages that a tourism comeback may be in the wings this summer.
The prediction actually came from industry experts analyzing
results from a leisure travel report put together by Peter
Yesawich's firm, YPB&R.
Back-to-back hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005 knocked
Florida off the No. 1 leisure destination list. But the latest results,
linked to last year's no-show storm season, put Florida back at
No. 1.
Yesawich told Hanks that his firm predicted "last year, if we
made it through the hurricane season without any major trauma,
life would get back to normal."
Hey, normal would be a welcome relief. Let's hope the predic-
tions prove true this summer.

Gender-based pricing is discrimination


EDITOR:
As a Keys resident, I like the laid-back atti-
tude that locals have. I work hard for the state
and get paid very little, especially in light of liv-
ing expenses down here.
I walked into a local shop recently to check
on prices for a haircut. I was upset to find dif-
ferent prices for men and women nearly
twice as much for women as for men. When I
asked if it wasn't illegal to charge disparate
prices, I was given a blank stare.
My next stop was another salon, where a
flustered receptionist couldn't come up with any
concrete reason to explain why women's hair-
cuts cost almost twice as much as men's.
Frankly, it would seem more difficult to cut
men's hair than women's.
All I want is two inches chopped off the bot-
tom of my long hair no layering, no styling.
Many men's haircuts require blending and the
use of several different styling tools. What hap-
pens if a man with long hair walks into those
salons? What happens if a woman with short
hair asks for a haircut?
SI came home and confirmed that not only
does California prohibit pricing discrimination
(since Jan. 1, 1996), but so does the entirety of
Canada (since 2005) in addition to Miami-Dade


County.
Many argue that cutting women's hair, tailor-
ing women's clothes and dry-cleaning female
garments are more time consuming and require
greater skill, but California, Miami and Canada
have consistently disagreed.
Miami-Dade's consumer-protection ordi-
nance even states: "If you can prove discrimina-
tion based on gender ... you are entitled to com-
pensatory damages, attorney's fees and court
costs. In addition you are entitled to threefold
damages with a minimum of $200 if a willful
violation is established."
Seeing as how we are so close to Miami and
we are supposed to be so open-minded, I was
very surprised to learn there is no protection
against this kind of price. gouging in the Keys.
The fact that I was met with such absolute
astonishment regarding my questions makes me
wonder if maybe we aren't a bit more preten-
tious here than we think.
I guess I'll be driving to Miami to get my
hair cut from now on, where women aren't
charged an arm and a leg for a trim. I'd rather
pay extra for the gas than stay here and pay for
snobbery.

Dolphin calf's death is not only tragedy


EDITOR:
The Marine Mammal Conservancy's Robert
Lingenfelser Jr., self-proclaimed world expert
on dolphins with help from the Tourist
Development Council, recently taught us all
how not to nurture a newborn calf that was
bor to a deaf dolphin named Castaway.
+ Lesson: Don't confine an offshore dol-
phin species to a tiny birthing pen after the
birth. It was not designed to be a nursing pen.
Even novice newscasters and camera crews -
were horrified as they filmed the small area
that disallowed Castaway any long straight
swim to facilitate proper positioning for nurs-
ing her calf. Of the 960 feet of lagoon avail-
able at the birthing site, Castaway and her calf
were only allowed 60 feet to maneuver inside
the small birthing pen.
The birthing pen became the death pen for
the calf in three days after no natural nutrition
or antibodies passed from cow to calf.
Frustrated with this and the excessive handling
of her calf, news coverage showed that
Castaway inflicted bite/rake marks on the
calf's head. Due to improper containment of
rainwater runoff, those open wounds were
exposed to contaminants from the recent severe
weather.
+ Lesson: If you want to engender hope and
trust, da not have your Dolphins Plus experts
(who have successfully overseen the birth of
more than a dozen dolphin calves) claim on TV
that this is like walking on the moon. That'
translated into a focus on the headline-grabbing
hook of teaching the calf to talk by high-tech
telephone connection with other Dolphin Plus
dolphins. The hook worked and they got their
network morning show face time.


Having not heeded earlier advice and calls
to provide companionship for Castaway, who
has been kept solitary for more than six
months, it is past time to follow federal law
and common sense to move her into the
Dolphins Plus captive dolphin collection.
Since her November 2006 stranding, eventu-
al failed release when rescuers' drugs rendered
her deaf and the exploitation visited on her in
Key Largo, Castaway has been ill served.
Rick Trout, founder
Marine Mammal Conservancy
Tavernier

Editor's note: Castaway is being moved to
Dolphins Plus. See story, Page 2.

Keys Red Cross needs your help


EDITOR:
I would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank the local residents who
helped raise more than $32,000 for
the local American Red Cross at the
ninth annual Harley Davidson
Reverse Raffle April 28 in Marathon.
This year's lucky winner was Ted
Hobbs of Lecanto, who took home a
2006 Black Cherry Springer Softail.
The success of this year's raffle is
due to the generosity of the
Hurricane Bar & Grille and to the
hard work of M.J. and Joe Rickard of
Mama Joe's Cycles and Stuff.
The American Red Cross is a non-
profit, humanitarian organization that
provides relief to victims of disaster
and helps people prevent, prepare for
and respond to emergencies. All
funds raised are used to provide serv-
ices in Monroe County, including
responding to community disasters
such as fires, and cardiopulmonary-
resuscitation and first-aid education.
The Red Cross is able to provide
these services through financial
donations and the generosity from
people who volunteer their valuable


time.
So far this year, the American Red
Cross has provided help to more than
130 victims of local disasters. On
average, the Red Cross trains more
than 2,000 people per year in lifesav-
ing CPR, first aid and disaster pre-
paredness.
If you would like to volunteer to
help victims of disaster in the Keys,
call Paul Garneau at 296-4033
(Middle and Lower Keys) or Grace
Connors at 852-9612 (Upper Keys).
We need people interested in volun-
teering on our disaster action team.
DAT members train for and respond
on an on-call basis to local disasters
such as residential fires, assessing
damage, and providing emergency
assistance such as food, clothing and
housing.
If you want to help, like to work
with other generous and dedicated
people, and have the time, please
consider volunteering.

Attorney's display was embarrassing


EDITOR:
Mr. Jerry Coleman, with his recent
display at the last County
Commission meeting, has now
achieved the dubious honor of being
Coinmissioner Dixie Spehar's person-
al court jester.
Mr. Coleman, a hired consultant for
the county, went into wild displays of
emotion during his numerous trips to
the podium. It was incredible to
behold. I was embarrassed for him
and amused at the same time. He
might as well have hung a sign around
his neck, "attorney for sale or rent."
When the commission finally
voted to sell the infamous Hickory
House property, he was at the podium
praising Commissioner Spehar as
though she were a god who had


bestowed a great favor on the people
of Monroe County (you have to watch
the tape of the meeting to believe it).
However a bit of laughter from
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy and
Mr. Coleman suddenly went from
court jester to a Jekyll and Hyde per-
sonality lashing out at Commissioner
Murphy as if his next paycheck
depended on the level of ferocity and
score he could bring to bear.
Meanwhile, Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro, normally quick to squelch
any comment from the public, sat
mesmerized to the point that he could
not speak even to stop this attack on a
fellow commissioner. It was an inter-
esting day to say the least.

State has no jurisdiction


EDITOR:
Your April 25 Keynoter had a letter
to the editor from County
Commissioner George Neugent that
needs to be addressed, as it mentions
the bay bottom.
First of all, an international treaty is
required to take away secured boaters'
rights in Pine Channel, a safe anchor-
age.
Second, the towers in the channel
carrying the electric wires for shore
power should be removed and placed
on the land between Big Pine Key and
Little Torch Key, well beyond the
shoreline.


In addition, the Sheriff's Office has
no jurisdiction beyond the mean high
water line of the islands west of Duck
Key, where Florida's waters ended
when it became a state in 1845.
To change that, an international
treaty is still required. Florida was
never given the bay bottom or sub-
merged land beyond Long Key. Yet
Florida has sold much of the bay bot-
tom beyond Long Key and has col-
lected taxes on what it sold but didn't
own for many years. That money
should all be returned to the taxpayers.

Marathon Boat Yard owner Bruce Popham is considered a leader not only in the
Keys but statewide in his efforts to go green.


Get on board to preserve our waters


EDITOR:
Kudos to Bruce Popham and Marathon
Marine and all their staffs. It is a great
pleasure to see that there is a local,
proactive response to obtain compliance
in regard to Florida's Clean Marina
Program.
Gaining such a distinction represents a
lot of hard work, planning, expense and,
most of all, a commitment to preserving
the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Florida
Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, which pro-
vides all of us in the Keys, as well as our
visitors, a living and a source of enjoy-
ment in the ocean environment.
In the early 1970s, I was stationed
with the U.S. Navy Dive School, Fleming
Key as an instructor, and lived in Key
West. During that time I enjoyed diving
for military purposes, as well as a recre-
ational diver. The waters of the Florida
Keys in those years were one of the most
pristine areas in the world.
My wife and I moved back to the Keys
in 2000. My first dive after returning was
to Sombrero Reef, and it was a rude
awakening.
Bleached coral and a general lack of
abundant sea life was a dismal sight to
say the least. Runoff, contaminants and
the overall presence of pollutants have
taken their toll.
I sincerely hope that all of us who
benefit and profit from these waters take
up the cause to keep these waters clean to
preserve them for today and the future. It
matters not whether your involvement is
within an active marine business or is
merely through a related endeavor. It is


long overdue for our active participation
in the preservation of our waters.
As a practicing marine surveyor, I see
on a daily basis what I consider a lack of
education and misuse of and flagrant irre-
sponsibility for the care and concern of
our ocean and bays.
If it wasn't for local caring individuals
such as Bruce Popham, the Marathon
Boat Yard, Richard Tanner (harbor mas-
ter) and the City of Marathon Marina,
what we collectively have may well be
negatively affected in the very near
future. Thanks to them for their proactive
stance.
Get on board and help keep our islands
clean and productive for now and our
future generations.

Small class, big results

EDITOR:
Kudos to the Marathon community. It
did itself proud again May 29 at Class
Night at the Stanley Switlik Elementary
School auditorium.
The Marathon High School graduat-
ing class of 2007, small but mighty,
took with it $1 million in scholarship
dollars. That is an impressive amount
from a town of 10,255 permanent resi-
dents. It is this spirit of giving and
encouragement that makes the Heart of
the Florida Keys even bigger.

Islamorada residents who
enjoy Florida Bay "will be
severely limited" by Everglades
National Park draft proposals,
Islamorada Village Council
members will hear Thursday.
Instead, an alternative plan
largely written by Islamorada res-
idents should be endorsed,
Village Manager Gary Word said
in a background report.
A resolution to be considered
by the Village Council concludes -
that Alternative E provides for
increased boater education and
environmental safeguards desired
by the national park "without sig-
nificantly restricting [Florida
Bay] access to educated and
responsible park visitors."
Three of four Florida Bay pro-
posals, named Alternatives A
through D, forwarded by
Everglades staff would "greatly


reduce recreational and financial
benefits of residents and busi-
nesses in Islamorada," notes
Word's assessment.
Islamorada is considered a
mecca for backcountry fishermen.
The Alternative E proposal
was crafted by local residents
including Jim Trice, Charlie
Causey, Sandy Moret and Dianne
Harbaugh, and flats guides Mike
Ehlers and Tad Burke.
Public comment on ideas for a
new Everglades National Park
management plan close July 31.
Park staff will issue its preferred
draft plan in summer 2008.
In other matters at the
Islamorada Village Council regu-
lar meeting, beginning at 5:30
p.m. Thursday at.the fire station at
mile marker 81.8, the council will:
+ Consider a land-use change
for the Sojourn property at mile
marker 74.5 on Lower
Matecumbe Key. The 2.65-acre


site now is designated as recre-
ation after being proposed for
purchase as a municipal park.
The land lies between U.S. 1 and
the Captain's Cove Basin, north-
east of a commercial-fishing site.
The owners want a residential
high and multi-family designa-
tion, agreeing to accept a deed
restriction limiting construction
to six residential units.
Consider a Plantation Key
land-use change in the Tropical
Coral Reef subdivision on
Schooner Bay Road. Five adja-
cent lots would be changed from
Residential Low to Residential
Medium.
Review a change of ven-
dors at the beachfront concession
at Founders Park. Take a Chance
at the Helm Inc., better known as
the Founders Park Sailing
Program, would take over from
Hay-a-Blast Water Sports, the
operator since Islamorada incor-
poration. Rent would remain at
$450 monthly.


Residents' vote on annexation?

are split on
Wisteria Island
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

To annex or not to annex -
that is the question of Wisteria
Island.
In fact, it's the only question,
according to Key West City

doesn't see sense in holding a
non-binding referendum on the
issue during the Oct. 2 election.
However, come the July 17
commission meeting, that's just
what some of his colleagues will
propose.
Commissioner Bill Verge said
he would push for a referendum
but not at Tuesday's commission
meeting because Bethel will be
on vacation.
"If you start putting up all of
the tough decisions up for a vote,
you don't need a commission,"
Bethel said. "That's what your
public input is for."
Commissioners Clayton
Lopez and Mark Rossi support a
referendum. Lopez had earlier
discussed the same idea as Verge
in an interview.
The first reading of an ordi-
nance for the annexation of the
property, better known as
Christmas Tree Island, passed
May 1, with Verge and Rossi dis-
senting. It's to go before the com-
mission for a second reading July
17, but the new initiative could
push it back even further.
Verge noted that "we are
going into Phase 3 water restric-
tions" and thinks it might not be
wise for the city to place more


utility services under its umbrel-
la.
This has been a common com-
plaint among those opposed to
the annexation.
Bethel refutes the argument,
noting that a private contractor
paid for the installation of sub-
aqueous cables that connect to
neighboring Sunset Key.
According to Lynne Tejeda,
chief executive officer of Keys
Energy Services, a contract was
signed in 1997 with Sunset Island
Utilities Corp. that installed the
cables connecting to the island.
Subsequently, Keys Energy took
control of maintenance for the
primary cable.
The cost of that maintenance
is paid through Sunset Key resi-
dents' utility bills, she said.
Tom McMurrian of Ocean
Properties, which would develop
Wisteria Island, said the project
would be similar to the upscale
Sunset Key.
That island has 48 single-fam-
ily homes and 21 vacant lots.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
couldn't comment on whether he
would support a referendum, stat-
ing he's unsure of how it would
be worded.
But "it would definitely give
us temperature for what the peo-
ple want," Lopez said.

Marina tops


village priority list


Council ranks
capital projects
not completed
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Village of Islamorada staff
and elected officials are
attempting to reverse the incor- -
porated community's track
record of being unable to com-
plete capital projects.
At a specially called work-
shop Friday, the five-member
Village Council, without tak-
ing a vote, decided that renova-
tions to the 88-slip Plantation
Yacht Harbor Marina at
Founders Park should take top
priority out of almost 10 proj-
ects that have been in the
works for years, but have yet to
begin the transition to bricks
and mortar.
"We need to do something
and finish something. Let's fin-
ish the marina," Councilman
Michael Reckwerdt told his
colleagues on the dais.
Islamorada officials hope
the marina and four other capi-
tal projects can be finished by
the.end of 2008.
Total cost of the marina ren-
ovation project comes in at
more than $3.5 million.
Village Manager Gary Word
said much of the project will be.
paid for by a combination of
existing capital projects loans
and a $2 million construction
loan, which can be repaid by
marina proceeds.
The village will likely
charge between $20 to $25 per
foot for slip space.
Councilman Chris Sante
said the village will make its
money back quickly because
dwindling boat-slip availabili-
ty is becoming an ever-increas-
ing commodity throughout the
Keys. "
"It's going to be worth $30 a
foot," Sante said.
The next two projects vil-
lage officials decided should
be completed are two fire sta-
tions, one on Lower
Matecumbe Key and another
on Plantation Key.
Talk of building the stations
has been ongoing since the


beginning of the decade. The
Lower Matecumbe Key station
is expected to cost almost $1.5
million.
The Plantation Key station
was originally envisioned as
part of a larger municipal com-
plex at Founders Park, which
for now is on indefinite hold:
The Village Council told vil-
lage planning and development
staff to begin construction on a
stand-alone station at the park.
That station will cost more
than the Lower Matecumbe
Key station because of an addi-
tional fire-truck bay area and a
larger living space, according
to a fact sheet handed out at
Friday's meeting. The exact
cost was not provided.
The next two projects the
village hopes to finish by 2008
are the marina bathroom com-
plex and community center.
The two projects together
are expected to cost around $2
million between $690,000
and $800,000 for the bathroom
complex and around $1.4 mil-
lion for the community center.
Word and other village staff
members, as well as some on
the council, are still pushing
for the municipal complex,
which would include a village
hall. Word said the proposal is
still "on the table," but others
on the council disagree.
They said projects, some in
the pipeline for more than six
years, must get done first to
show Islamorada residents that
village officials can be good
stewards of taxpayers' dollars.
"We need to finish some-
thing before we start anything
else," Reckwerdt said.

New bus routes designed for efficiency


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


After Hurricane Wilma
destroyed his truck -in October
2005 and before he sprained his
ankle, Clinton Curry used to ride
his bike all over Key West to
work, shop and eat.
Now he relies on public trans-
portation, which he sometimes
finds unreliable.
As manager of the Key West
Shipwreck Museum on
Whitehead Street, Curry pays $1
to ride the bus to and from work
- a lifestyle change that's made
him discover a system in need of
revamping.
That discovery prompted
Curry to attend Monday's unveil-
ing by the city Department of
Transportation of proposed
adjusted bus routes that would
place more attention in Old
Town, Higgs Beach and on
Flagler Avenue and First Street.
"I'm actually looking forward
to the changes," Curry said. DOT
knows "they had they have a
problem and they are doing what
they can to clean it up."
The routes needed attention


FII YO NW


for some time, DOT employees
agree, though a lack of staff and
proper resources has made proj-
ects like they're now proposing
impossible in the past.
"It's been sort of put on the
back burner for four or five
years," Superintendent Ben
Gibson said.
With the department's recent
addition of Operations
Supervisor Eduardo Herrera and
Assistant Supervisor EJ Russo,
whom Gibson describes as the
"new blood," the team is confi-
dent it can make improvements.
The strategy: Increase the
efficiency of transit routes by
focusing on the system's peak
hours and shortening the orange
and red line's current 90-minutes
loops that stop in Stock Island in
an effort to focus on sections of
the island now ignored.
The new loops will bypass
Stock Island and be cut to about
60 minutes. The blue, green and
gold routes will still access Stock
Island.
The department is shooting
for Sept. 1 to launch the new

routes, which will increase fre-
quency, coverage and lower otal
operational costs, Herrera said.
He also said new bus-stop signs
the city has talked about for
months should appear at some
stops in July.
A newly installed GPS system
has made better efficiency more
easily obtainable.
And the system has sparked
another idea the department will
put in motion phone numbers
and Web addresses posted at
each stop so riders can call and


find out the estimated time of
arrival for any bus by an auto-
mated machine that would calcu-
late the automobile's exact loca-
tion.
"We can see if we're having
driver problems, or too much rid-
ership," Herrera said.
Changes in the orange and red
shuttles indicate more opportuni-
ties to board the buses during the
peak hours, 6:30 to 9 a.m. and
3:30 to 7 p.m., along with more
stops throughout the day, in areas
like Sears Town, Key Plaza, Key

Lower Keys Medical Center.
Herrera says the changes will
make for a cut in operational
costs and hours, but that won't
cause layoffs for the department.
Rather, Director Myra
Wittenberg is searching for more
qualified drivers.
Herrara says the department is
all ears when it comes com-
plaints and suggestions.
The next public hearing on the
matter is schedule for July 13 at 6
p.m. in Old City Hall.


More file for Key West election


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

October's Key West elections
are starting to shape up as each
week passes.
Fair Insurance Rates for
Monroe President Teri Johnston
confirmed Tuesday she will file-
paperwork Thursday to join the
race for City Commission
District 5, and City Commis-
sioner Mark Rossi filed Tuesday
to run for his own position in
District 2.
Additionally, attorney Diane
Tolbert Covan has filed to run for
the Utility Board in Group 4.
Incumbent Mona Clark is seek-
ing to return to her seat on the
board, which makes recommen-
dations for and oversees the
actions of Keys Energy Services,
the Lower Keys and Key West
power company.
Rossi will face Todd German


in District 2. German is a banker
and former chairman of the
Hometown PAC.
Johnston, owner of
Construction Affiliated Design,
enters a race that includes incum-
bent Jose Menendez and Vincent
Mancini, vice chairman of the
Historical Architectural Review
Commission.
Two weeks ago, she told the
Keynoter, "I think that the city is
in a transition period right now
and in order to move it ahead, we
need some forward-thinking indi-
viduals."
As for Covan, she said she
feels it's "time to try and help
out."
With her husband Fred, a psy-
chologist and president of the
B'Nai Zion Synagogue, Covan
-started looking at making her
home and office solar-powered a


few months ago.
"Its obvious that [Keys
Energy] will begin looking at it,"
she said of the green trend. "We
could sell electricity to the main-
land."
Others who have filed:
Mayor Morgan McPherson
has filed for re-election to his
two-year seat.
For City Commission
District 4, a seat now held by
Harry Bethel (who is not seeking
re-election), Barry Gibson, owner
of Shades of Key West, and attor-
ney Richard Klitenick.
For Utility Board Group 1,
Bethel and Charles Lee (Robert
Padron is not seeking re-elec-
tion).
For Group 5, incumbent
Charlie Bradford and retiree Tom
Milone.
Candidate qualifying is noon
Aug. 13 to noon Aug. 17.
Election day is Oct. 2.

der Wal visit South Florida from
the Netherlands.
It took two nasty hurricane
seasons for California to bump
Florida as America's favorite
vacation spot. But one calm sum-
mer has lifted Florida back into
top slot.
The results from YPB&R's
annual Leisure Travel Monitor
present an encouraging prelude to
South Florida's dicey summer
travel season.
Even with no hurricanes hit-
ting the United States in 2006,
South Florida's tourism industry
suffered a slow summer last year.
But with a quiet storm season
behind them, hoteliers say busi-
ness is looking better this time
around.
"I don't want to jinx this, but
so far so good," said Robert
Thrailkill, general manager of the
Conrad Hilton in Miami's
Brickell Avenue financial district.
A tourism comeback this sum-,
mer could offer a lesson'in the
long-term impact of busy hurri-
cane seasons, which experts pre-.


Tourism stalled statewide in 2006
and California overtook Florida
in the YPB&R survey for the first
time since it began in 1991.
But this year, Florida beat
California by two points in the
survey a comeback YPB&R
Chairman Peter Yesawich attrib-
uted to short memories of past
hurricane troubles.
"My prediction was last year
that if we made it through the
hurricane season without any
major trauma, life would get back
to normal," Yesawich said.
"That's exactly what happened."
Hoteliers say hurricane wor-
ries remain a drag on summer
business for conventions and
meetings, but the storm stigma
has eased.
"It's coming up less," said
Christopher Bielski, sales and
marketing director at-the Doral
Golf Resort & Spa. "We still talk
about it. And groups will bring it
up. But we seem able to over-
come that objection a lot easier
than we have been in the past."

guine hurricane outlook this year
- particularly with forecasters
calling for as many as 17 named
storms.
And hurricane memories
brought their own problems last
year. Jane Lowe, owner of Key
West's Tropical Inn, said would-
be guests were reluctant to book
vacations in the summer of 2006
and that reservation staff coun-
tered those fears by pushing
vacation insurance.
With storm season upon her
again, Lowe said hurricanes
aren't that big of a headache for
the hotel.
"We sold a lot more of those
policies last year than we did this
year," she said. "I'm not sure if
the traveling public has forgotten
what happened two years ago. I
hope they have."

New boutiques open


More places to
shop spring up
in Upper Keys
By CLAUDIA MILLER
Keynoter contributor


Shopping options in
Islamorada just got a little more
diverse with the opening of two
new boutiques: Wild Lily and
Fish Lips Island Cargo 2.
The Wild Lily boutique


opened at the end of May in the
shopping complex next to
Tropical Optical (mile marker
81.9) and has 900 square feet of
clothing, shoes, jewelry, hand-
bags and other accessories.
Its light, airy environment was
designed to be a -comfortable
shopping experience with one-
on-one customer service with the
owner, Susan Dumer.
Durer came to the Keys over
three years ago after managing a


resort in Little Cayman. While
she was there, she was in charge
of buying for the gift shop, so
when she came to the Keys, she
managed a local clothing bou-
tique.
After two years off getting
used to the market, she decided
that she was ready to branch out
on her own. "The boutique where
I was working was upscale and
exclusive," she said. "I wanted to

Food labels can be confusing


State agency
offers help on
figuring them out
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson says
people who want to know more
about the food they eat can get
help deciphering the sometimes
confusing food labels.
Useful information on labels


includes nutritional values, ingre-
dients, serving sizes, fat and calo-
rie content, and net quantity. The
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Food
Safety, has a brochure available
that breaks down each section
and explains exactly what they
mean and how the consumer can
use the information for better
health.


"In the wake of recent reports
of food-borne illnesses, as well as
numerous product recalls, the
public is concerned about food
safety issues," Bronson said. "I
think it is timely for us to remind
consumers we can help them
understand how the label infor-
mation is relevant to them."
Knowing what nutrients are in
the products enables people to
make healthy food choices, but,

He presses a few buttons to
input information on ready-made
forms that were sent to his phone.
The description of his next job
and its location are all on the
screen, while the data on when he
started and finished is sent to a
central computer.
This paperless data exchange
among field workers and their
offices is not new. But JumpStart
Wireless is bringing the technolo-
gy to regular cell phones, hoping
it will grow due to its software's
widespread compatibility and
become an attractive takeover
target for more established com-
petitors like Motorola.
Using artificial intelligence,
the Delray Beach-based compa-
ny's application fits most busi-
ness software, and works on any
cell phone brand. Users say it
saves businesses time and money
on paperwork, data entry, labor
costs and auditing.
"Any phone you can play a
game on, you can run our soft-
ware on," said Jeff Bonar, who
started JumpStart in 2000.
Bonar used his doctorate in
artificial intelligence and a
$500,000 initial investment to
found JumpStart. His goal was to
come up with mass market solu-
tions for moving corporate data
on devices such as cell phones or
BlackBerrys.
"One of the problems in the
wireless world for business soft-
ware is that everything is incom-
patible," Bonar said. "At no point
in the future will Motorola
phones be compatible with Nokia
phones."
For Bonar, writing custom
software for each company was
not an option because of the
abundance of available business
software applications. That's
where artificial intelligence
comes in.
"We let the computer itself
configure the software to meet
the needs of particular customer,"
Bonar said.
JumpStart can be used for
researchers to monitor partici-
pants in medical trials, delivery
drivers to record drop-offs, even
let college kids order pizza,
Bonar said. Bonar said the typi-
cal customer pays about $35 per
user, per month.

worker, as well as the upscale
customer. I wanted something
that everyone could afford."
Dumer has focused on carry-
ing contemporary women's
clothing that bridges the gap
between the junior and missy
customer.
"It's not really resort cloth-
ing," she said. "It's not something
that you'll find in any other store
here. You can buy something
here and wear it in the Keys or in
New York and still feel comfort-
able."
Lines such as the well-estab-
lished Vera, which offers bright
tunic styles in light fabrics and
Not Your Daughter's Jeans,
which have a higher waist and
fuller cuts, were purchased with
the more mature woman in mind.
Other brands like Comfy, which
is a line of washable linens, as
well as the Marlow and Blue
Tattoo jeans, which have a lower
rise, appeal to the crossover age
market.
Keeping most of her clothing
informal, Durner does have some
dresses that can be accessorized
for a cocktail party as well as for
a beach wedding.
Wild Lily is at mile marker
81.9 and is open Tuesday-
Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. or by
appointment. Call 517-9222 or

Fish Lips 2
Fish Lips and Island Cargo 2
(mile marker 82) is the northern
outpost of Fish Lips and Island
Cargo in Key Colony Beach. It
opened in April and is owned by
Heather Miciuda and a private
investor, while her friend, Andrea
Ayres, owns the store in
Marathon. Miciuda moved to the
Keys in January from Michigan
where she was a loan specialist.


"My friend was doing really
well with her store, and I decided
to venture out," she explained.
"It's a huge change of pace, and
it's a lot better than doing mort-
gages."
Full of bright and funky items,
Fish Lips carries everything from
pet accessories, children's toys,
gift cards, home dEcor items and
more. Pets are welcome at Fish
Lips, and they have a wide vari-
ety of items for owners to pamper
their "babies." Plush toys in
shapes like fish, octopus and
flamingos, line the walls as well
as clothing, pet dishes, pillows
and gifts.
In the children's area, Miciuda
said other than the stuffed ani-
mals, they tried to make the toys
interactive, including such items
as kits to make charm bracelets
and hemp bracelets, magic
books, spiral drawing games and
jigsaw puzzles.
Miciuda said people were
responding well to the greeting
cards they carry by Dolly


Mamma's and Eat Your Peas.
Also, one of their most popular
items are Jelly Bean rugs, which
have patterns with local themes
such as sea turtles, starfish,
swimsuits, sailboats, pineapples
and palm trees.
"They're bright, fun rugs, and
they're fabulous because they are
machine washable."
Visit www.fishlipsisland
cargo.com to see some of
what's available.
"We're working on getting
everything on there because we
have so many items in our store,"
Miciuda said. "It's hard because
some of the things are one of a
kind, and we have to be careful
that if we post it on the Web site,
we pull it when it sells."
Fish Lips and Island Cargo 2
is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 7 days a

more importantly, for people
who have food allergies,
knowing what a product con-
tains can be a matter of life or
death.
Making sense of product
date stamps is also important.
Dairy, infant formula and
shellfish must have expiration
dates stamped on them but the
majority of products are not
required to do so. There are a
number of phrases used and
not all product dating is related
to safety it is often a quality
issue. "Sell by" gives the


retailer a time limit on how
long to have a product out so
there is time for the consumer
to take it home and use it.
"Best if used by" tells con-
sumers how long the product
will be at its best quality and is
not related to any safety con-
cerns. An expiration date tells
when a product should no
longer be consumed because
of the potential for bacteria
growth or for loss of nutrient
value.

the subject of a new interac-
tive exhibit opening FridaN
at the Mel Fisher Maritime
Museum in Key West.

ricanes. The family -friend-
ly exhibit puts modern trop-
ical cyclones into a context
of historical storms, human
tragedy and political
change.
Shakespeare's "The
Tempest" ~ as inspired by
real events that illustrate
just how hurricanes tor-
mented the Spanish ship-
ping industry and left their
mark un the politics of the
time.

On a





mission


Willey family launches campaign
to embrace refugees in need


H. :.:-'.I *. .r s^ -

Kelly Willey holds a woman's baby during a 'shoe ministry' in
the Dominican Republic so her other children can be fitted for
one of the 200 pairs of shoes given out. Willey says many
Haitian children don't go to school in the Dominican Republic
simply because they can't afford shoes, which are a
requirement to attend public school.


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

When Kelly Willey's kids
fight over which fast-food
Restaurant to go to for dinner,
she really knows how to put
Things in perspective for them.
All she need do is remind
Them of the starving children
they have spent time with over
the past three years in the
Dominican Republic on short-
term mission projects.
Willey, her husband Jim and
three of the couple's four children
have been to the struggling Third
World country several times each
to work on various projects.
Mostly, the Marathon residents
work with Haitian refugees who
sneak into the Dominican
Republic to work harvesting
sugar on the country's north
coast.
Willey says the people there
endure unimaginable living con-
ditions, with no running water
and often times no food.
"They live in shacks made out
of trash or palm fronds and they
have dirt floors," she said. "There
are 1,000 people crammed into
this little plot of land and there's
no water. People have lived there
for 20 years and have never had a


toilet. When we go there we're
literally walking through human
waste and the kids are mostly
barefoot."
The family hands out food,
milk, clothes, hygiene supplies,
toys and whatever else they can to
help. Willey says the people's
desperation is overwhelming.
"When we distribute clothes
we have to bar the door and have
a bouncer because they're like
screaming fans at a rock show,"
Willey said. "My 21-year-old son
had to stand at the door to hold
back grandmothers trying to get
our leftover clothing."
For their next mission,
planned to begin Aug. 1, the
Willeys will be "hosting a two-
week trip to provide a baseball
camp and vacation Bible school
to 200 homeless street kids in
Puerto Plata."
To help raise the money need-
ed to purchase Spanish bibles,
food and baseball equipment, the
Willeys are accepting donations
of furniture and household items
to be sold at yard sales held every
Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon
at Island Christian School on
125th Street in Marathon.
But Willey said she felt like

turkey vulture. The bird was spotted walking around the
neighborhood of Knight's Key in. Marathon for almost a
week before the Marathon Wild Bird Center was
contacted. Director Kelly Grinter examined the bird and
said it was unable to fly due to poor feather condition. The
bird is considered an imperfect albino because it has

complete set of white to cocoa-colored feathers.

Bikers ride for a cause


Associated Press


A group of motorcycle-riding,
law-enforcing Southerners has
departed Fairbanks, Alaska, on a
7,000-mile journey across the
continent in a quest to raise about
a half-million dollars for the
Special Olympics. .
The 38 mostly Georgian bik-
ers plan to get from Prudhoe Bay
to Key West by July 7.
"Special Olympics is close to
the hearts of many law enforce-
ment officers," said Ed Christian,
a task force agent with the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security in Atlanta and the
organizer of the trip. "We've got
sheriffs, police chiefs, detectives
and officers."
Most are experienced bikers,
and many of them made a similar
trip in 2004 when they rode from
Georgia to California for the
same cause.


But are they ready for the
Haul Road?
"It's the toughest ride you'll
have in your life," Christian said.
Some of the riders are con-
cerned about their bikes on the
notoriously punishing Dalton
Highway.
Ted Price, 71, from South
Carolina was covering a large
portion of his Harley-Davidson
with heavy black tape trying to
protect the paint job from the
road's grit and gravel. He has
traveled long distances before
and knows the damage flying
rocks can wreak on a bike.
"I'll probably have to repaint
it when I get back," Price said.
Group organizers say they
have coordinated their efforts
with Department of
Transportation officials and they
plan to travel in groups of five or
six so they won't back up traffic
on the gravel road mostly used


by trucks headed to and from
North Slope oil fields.
They say they have also been
asking others who have already
made the trip what to expect, and
they're prepared, Christian said.
Three support trucks will be fol-
lowing the group and seven of
the riders are certified emer-
gency medical technicians.
"We should be able to take
care of anything that happens,"
Christian said.
The group is scheduled to be
in parades across the country on
their trip, and more than 500
motorcyclists are planning to
join the procession across the
final stretch in Florida.
Each of those will be taking
pledges, and the group so far has
raised about $125,000.
"This is just the beginning,"
Christian said. "We hope to raise
$250,000 to $500,000 by the
time we get to Key West."


Co-op a possibility


MISSION / From 16

the family needed to do even
more than what they already are;
so she and Jim are in the process
of forming Micah Missions, a
nonprofit organization through
which they intend to purchase a
171-acre farm. It is better to pro-
vide the people with land to pro-
vide for themselves, she says,


than to simply go there and give
them food.
"We'd like to do a co-op
where people can have. some
ongoing sustainable food
source," Willey said. "That's our
vision."

yard sales, making a donation or

Church sets service
and beach cleanup

For several years, St.
Francis-in-the-Keys Episcopal
Church on Big Pine Key has
organized beach cleanup at
Bahia Honda State Park. And
for more than five years St.
Francis has celebrated the first
Eucharist of each month using
the lona Liturgy, a Celtic serv-
ice infused with an apprecia-
tion of the world's natural
beauty.
Never has the parish mixed
the two until now:
On July 1, St. Francis will
worship at Bahia Honda and
also do a beach cleanup. It will
conclude with a barbecue and
fellowship.
Trash bags, sunscreen and
mosquito repellent will be pro-
vided. Wear work clothes or
beach wear and bring work
gloves and an appetite.
Children are welcome if
accompanied by adults.
The service begins at 10
a.m. For more information, call
872-2547.

Marathon tries to get to .500


Little League
team 1-2 so far
in tournament
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon 9 and 10-
year-old Little League team
won its opening game Friday


Big Pine

takes a


break

Keynoter Staff


The Big Pine Key Little
League stepped out of district-
tournament play this summer but
expects to return in the future,
board member Steve Miller said.
"The [regular-season] program
is still going fantastic, but we just
didn't have enough kids to play
the tournaments," said Miller,
head umpire and a past president.
"Too many kids were going to
be gone on vacation at the same
time," he said. "We think this just
something that happened this par-
ticular year."
Like most youth leagues in the
Keys, the Big Pine Little League
has seen an overall decline in par-
ticipation.
"Too many young families are
leaving," Miller said.
Big Pine expected to have sev-
eral players returning from the
Age 11-12 all-star team that last
year beat Marathon in the round-
robin play. It was Big Pine's only
win of the tournament but the
first for the Lower Keys squad at
the district level in several years.
Miller said he favors a return
to double-elimination play at the
Little League tournament instead
of the current round-robin format.
"If you lose two games, you're
not going to win the tournament.
.At that point, the parents and the
kids are ready to go home," he
said. "Especially with a location
like this year [in Miami-Dade
County]. That's brutal if you have
to play five games in the round-
robin."

Springs before dropping its
next two games.
The team lost a very close
game against Doral, 15-14,
Saturday and fell short against
a very strong Miami Shores
team, 9-5, on Monday.
Marathon is 1-2 thus far,
with four games remaining in

Head coach Rodney
Bonilla said standouts Carlos
O' Farrill and Kyle Pierce led
the team to victory in their
opener. O'Farrill went 4-for-4

walked very few batters,
Bonilla said.
"It was a real good team
effort ... good pitching and hit-
ting," Bonilla said. "I believe


everyone that got in had a hit."
Bonilla said the team was
very competitive in its next
two games, but as he suspect-
ed might be an issue before
the tournament began, the
pitching staff came up short
against the strong Miami
squads.

well, we've been in every

Slow start for Upper Keys


Comeback
effort falls short
against Doral
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A shaky start and a talented
North Miami pitcher saddled the
Upper Keys all-stars with an 0-2


start in the Age 9-10 Little
League District 8 Tournament.
"There is still plenty of time
to come around," Upper Keys
head coach Jason Richards said.
"We're over our nerves now. We
just need to hit the ball."
The Upper Keys continued its
grueling schedule of four games
in a five-day span earlier this
week.


Results against Liberty City
and North Miami Beach were
not available at press time.
Next up is a 7 p.m. Friday
game against Kendall
Hammocks, at the Miami
Springs Rec Center.
In the Upper Keys' tourna-
ment opener Friday, things got
off to a bad start when Doral
scored 11 runs in the top of the

team's efforts three games in.
"We should have won the sec-
ond game.... We had them
down and allowed them to
walk and walk. They didn't
get many base hits. But in the
last .couple innings, we were
done because we had no pitch-
ing."
Bonilla saidfthe team came
out strong against Doral in its
second game, building an 11-4
lead- behind the pitching of
Carlos O'Farrill.
But when O'Farrill reached
the limit of 75 pitches after the
third inning, the team would
eventually surrender that big
lead.
Still, the game was tied at
13-13 entering the bottom of
the fifth, when Doral scored
twice to take a 15-13 lead.
O'Farrill walked and even-
tually scored in the top of the
sixth inning, but' the team
couldn't muster another run
and lost, 15-14.
In its game Monday night,
Bonilla said the team played.


The Marathon Minors went 1-2 in its first three games. The two
losses were due in large part to pitching coming up short.


well, but lost to a very strong
North Miami team he believes
is the favorite to win the tour-

Pierce was throwing anoth-
er good game on the mound
and kept the team in the game
through three innings, but
after he came out the team got
down 9-2. They would score
three runs in the fifth to make


it 9-5, but eventually lost by
that score.
"We gave North Miami
their hardest game of the tour-
nament," Bonilla said, "but
not hard enough."
The team was scheduled to
play its fourth game Tuesday
against Liberty City. Results
were not available at press

'First-game nerves'


UPPER KEYS / From 21

first inning.
The Keys club settled down
and outscored Doral the rest of the
way, but never could completely
dig itself out of the early hole and
lost, 22-17.
"There definitely were some
first-game nerves. We struggled a
bit on the mound and made some
fielding errors," Richards said.
"But then the guys made a really
nice comeback."
It started with six runs in 'the
Keys' half of the first, and kept
going.
Brian Cash, one of two Little
League tournament veterans on
the 9-10 roster, went 3-for-3
against Doral.
Tuck Wood tripled in the high-
scoring game.
Defensively, catcher Ian
Thomson threw down to second
where infielder Rob Mather


picked off a Doral runner taking
too big a lead. "That was our play
of the game," said the coach.
The Keys players were
"pumped" after the near-come-
back that took about four hours to
finish, said Richards.
But the long game sapped
some of the energy Saturday
morning, when the team returned
to take on North Miami.
North Miami got a superb
pitching effort, and the Keys went
down, 11-0.
"We just couldn't hit the guy,"
Richards said. "When we did, we
got robbed. Our guys hit some
line drives, but [North Miami]
made the plays."
Each team of the eight teams in
the Age 9-10 tournament plays a
seven-game round robin, with the
top four teams advancing to the
playoffs.
The Upper Keys round-robin
closes at 7 p.m. July 6 against
local rival Marathon.

Shevlin wins
last Key West

The fifth annual Mercury/
IGFA (International Game Fish
Association) Junior Angler
World Championship held out of
the King's Pointe Marina in Key
West over the weekend was
another huge success, says tour-
nament director Peter Graube.
"What a great tournament.
This was the largest field of
anglers in the Mercury/IGFA
Junior Angler World
Championship history, with 37
youngsters. With anglers coming
from as far as Barbados, Jamaica
and Southern California, the fifth
annual tournament of champions
was a huge success."
The tournament itself focuses
on educating youths on the con-
servation of catch and release. In
other words, you catch a 37-
pound blackfin tuna like angler
Josh Shevlin fishing on the Got
Ta Go with Capt. Rob Harris,
you put it back.
You land a gorgeous 46.5-
pound cobia as did Paul
Sabayrac fishing on the Triple J
with Capt. Jason Johnson, ease it
back into the water nice and
healthy like.
The tournament is based on a
point system for every fish


T caught and
released.
Some of
the easier
to catch
fish like
"^' yellowtail,
A .- jack crev-
e 1 I e
Spanish
mackerel
Sand lady-
fish count
for five
Cal Sutphin points.
The
middle-of-the-pack fish that
count for 10 points would be
sharks, groupers, barracuda, dol-
phin, kingfish and mutton snap-
pers.
The next level of 15 points
would be awarded to amberjack
and little tunny, 20 points-for tar-
pon and cobia, and 25 points for
permit, African pompano, sail-
fish, tuna and wahoo.
A maximum of three fish per
species per day are eligible.
According to 11-year-old
Thomas Fricke from
Summerland Key, the captains
took the tournament very seri-
ously with their game plan.
"Our captain on the first day
started hitting wrecks through
the lakes [west of Key West]
with the idea to get some grouper
and rack up some quick points,
then keep heading west and look


for some barracuda. We found
the grouper but of all things had
problems finding the 'cudas."
At the end of the two-day
event, Joshua Shevlin, 12, from
Bay Harbor was both the Junior
Division champion and the over-
all points champion netting with
401. He scored 266 points the
first day and 135 the second,
releasing a total of 38 fish among
11 species.
Finishing second was Paul
Sabayrac, 16, from Palm Beach
Gardens with 296 points. Chris
Dillon, 16, of Key Largo was
third with 287 points.
The top junior girl was
Tiffany Smith, 12, from Port St.
Lucie with 231 points, followed
by Heather Harkavy, 11, of Coral
Springs with 99.
Nick Ames, 15, of Holly Hill,
who finished fourth, led all
anglers for the most species
caught with 12 for his 267
points.
Capt. Dave Esquinaldo on the
Quick Relief won the top award
among the captains, scoring 749
points over the two days through
the points of the anglers he had
aboard.
Capt. Robert Trosset on the
Spin Drift was second with 609
points and Capt. Jim Thomas on
the Tightlines was third with 449.

It's somewhat scattered


But there are
other options
to nail catches
The weekend's funnel clouds
not withstanding, we have had
some of the best weather of the
year lately and all indications are
this will continue: with a slight
variance in wind velocity from
day to day.
We have seen so much action
the reef has been producing that it
has been hard to pass beyond it to
go dolphin fishing.
Yellowtail has been good in
spots but you have to find those
spots with your machine. They
are not concentrated all over the
reef line as much now.
Mangrove snapper are moving
out by the ton, with great catches
being reported in 60 to 90 feet of
water. Live pinfish have been
crushing the big snappers as well
as quite a few grouper.
Muttons have been doing well
in the. deeper water on rigged
squid or live baits. Most have
been in 10.0-plus feet on humps
and bumps. Big permit have also
been quite plentiful throughout

the reef and
offshore
wrecks.
I can
always tell
what's out
there from
the guides
loading up
on live
crabs.
Using the
crabs for
the muttons
is a time-
honored


bait and works so well in the deep
waters. Most of these areas are
drifted rather than anchored
while working over any type of
obstruction near the bottom.
The patch reefs have been
bountiful, as well, with snapper
and scattered grouper. These are
best drifted or slow trolled with
plugs or rigged baits near the bot-
tom. This is easy to do now with
all of the traps out of the water,
since you don't have to work
around these obstructions like in
the winter.
Waters have been so clear that
the best bottom finder has been
your eyes.
But offshore action has been
quite scattered. Most of the clos-
er-in weed lines have been some-
what void of any decent-sized
fish, with most of the larger ones
well out. This is not to say there
hasn't been the occasional nice


fish inside the 20-mile range, but
not enough to promote working
this area.
There have been quite a few
reports of big wahoo, with sever-
al over 40 pounds, the past week.
And the weather has been so
calm that flats skiffs have been
venturing out with anglers who
want to have some fun on fly rods
with the dolphin, and there have
been plenty of fish in close
enough for them to do just that.
Most have been quite small but
the action has been there.
Some of the finest catches of
late have been caught in the late
afternoon right near the reef line,
within 3 miles of it. This is an
area that seems to develop a weed
line late in the day even though
most of the time there is little or
no current in this water. Give it a
try and you may be 'fooled by
what is in there.
Although most of the fish are
very small, the occasional big one
will hit. This is where most of the
sails this past week have been
picked up.
Billy Baits, which are my
favorites, as well as many other
lures are a good way to get fish to
bite. They are reusable for many
fish and the best part is they
require no refrigeration. I have
used Billy Baits exclusively for
more than 15 years now and have
seen an actual increase of my

Keynoter Keys Fishing Wednesday, June 27, 2007


Goal is

reached


SUTPHIN / From 25

the Lower Keys donated two
days of charters to take these
junior anglers out on the water.
Although this has been a very
popular tournament, the five-
year home in Key West has
come to an end. That fact is
actually not a bad thing, accord-
ing to IGFA Education Manager
Dawn Miller-Walker.
"Key West has been a pre-
mier spot for us to hold the
JAWC. The fishing is great
inshore and offshore and the
captains are even better. The rea-
son why we are no longer hold-
ing the JAWC is because it is
like preaching to the choir the
anglers that join us down at Key
West are already ethical anglers
and conservation-minded.
"About a third of those
anglers [are] repeats and already
knows and practices the conser-
vation efforts. We usually get
around 35, 37 anglers at the
JAWC, but we believe we can
reach many more anglers with
the same resources."
She said "conservation edu-
cation is most important for the
future of our fisheries and the
sport of fishing. In order to have
a sport, we have to have a fish-
ery; in order to have a fishery,
everyone needs to be educated
on what they can do. People,
especially children, learn by
doing not reading a textbook
or having someone tell them a
story, but by getting out there
and doing it hands-on.
"One of my goals at IGFA is
to get as many people, children
and adults alike, to enjoy the
sport of fishing, to have the pas-
sion and desire to reel in a fish,
but at the same time understand
the importance of catch and
release."


On -a sad note, Florida Keys
guide and fly-fishing mentor to
many, including myself, Capt.
Tom White died late Saturday
night in Vancouver, British
Columbia. He had been battling
brain cancer for the past half
year -and had flown to
Vancouver to be with family.
No funeral arrangements had
been announced at press time.
