Budget



is ready



for rollout


But the rollback
percentages
aren't adding up
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County budget staff
is scrambling to incorporate tax-
reform measures in the 2007-08
budget in time to present a cohe-
sive package at next week's
budget hearings.
"There's some miscommuni-
cation between Tallahassee and
all 67 counties," Budget
Director Sal Zappulla said.
"Monroe County's rollback is
coming out higher than 3 per-
cent. When I put the numbers in,
it's showing we're at 5 percent.


We're in the midst of calculat-
ing that right now."
The Florida Legislature, in a
special June session, passed a
tax-reform bill requiring coun-
ties to create budgets for the
coming year anywhere from 3
percent to 7 percent lower than
the current budgets.
The formula for Monroe was
interpreted to roll back at 3 per-
cent.
Zappulla will roll out the
county's proposed 2007-08
budget July 12. The special
County Commission meeting
begins at 2 p.m. at the Harvey
Government Center.

Scuba students who show a
keen interest in unusual under-
water skills may be a threat to
America, the FBI has warned
dive operations.
Florida Keys dive shops


received a terrorism advisory in
late June that lists a series of
"threat indicators," local busi-
ness people said.
"They're not asking for
information on everybody, just
when something's not right,"
said Brenda Mace, co-owner of
Conch Republic Divers in
Tavemier. "They asked us to
stay on the lookout for anything
weird."

Gow gets his fire station


It's named for
38-year vet
of department
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Dave Gow, with the Key
Largo Fire Department nearly
four decades, will be around
much longer.
His name now adorns the
outside of the new North Key
Largo Fire Station, and his
spirit will fill the inside,
department members said.
At a Sunday open house and
dedication honoring him, Gow
would have none of it.
"I'm nothing," the former
chief maintained. "There's
been a lot of good people over
the years. That's what it's all
about."
The volunteer firefighters
know better.
"He's one of my mentors,"
Chief Sergio Garcia said.
"Dave Gow is an individual
who set the foundation not just
for this building and equip-
ment but for all the members
of the organization."
Gow, 77, has been with the
Key Largo department for 38
years of its 52-year history,
department President Chris
Fleming said. "And he's still
an active member. He's been
the membership chairman for
the last 20 years."
Volunteers worked to have a
dedication to Gow at the North
Key Largo station, at mile
marker 106.5 oceanside,
because there might not be a

station without him.
"Dave Gow made it possi-
ble for us to have a building
here when the county turned
their backs on us," Garcia said.
He negotiated with
landowners planning to build
developments along the North
Key Largo shore to provide
space for a new fire station.
Unable to secure govern-
ment funding, Gow and other
firefighters arranged to have an
aging metal hangar from the
Ocean Reef airport disassem-
bled.and rebuilt at the site.
"It was at least something to
keep the rain off the trucks,"
Garcia said.
Eventually the state
acquired the land occupied by
the station as part of an envi-
ronmental preservation effort.

Volunteers went all the way to
then-Gov. Jeb Bush for permis-
sion to keep their small corer.
"We needed ground and we
found ways to get it," Gow
recalled. "We had to fight to
keep it. We had squatters'
rights there for a while."
Now a new 8,055-square-
foot building has been com-
pleted, needing only a certifi-
cate of occupancy to go into
use.
Gow's name has been added
to the exterior wall, above
commemorative metal art-
work. Sunday, he was present-
ed with the "first key" to the
building.
"It's a far improvement
from the conditions we had tc
endure for the last 30 years,'
Garcia said.


Line-item budgeting begins July 19


BUDGET / From 1

whether staffers get the bugs out
of the formula, means a revenue
reduction anywhere from $3
million to $4 million.
During the current budget
year, the county expects to levy
$83 million in ad valorem taxes.
That means, because of the
new legislation, the county will
only be able to levy between
$79 million and $80 million in
the coming year.
"We're prioritizing every-


thing, as best we can, as far as
what citizens in the county
want," Zappulla said.
Rep. Ron Saunders, during
the regular County Commission
meeting June 21, said the legis-
lation would allow the county to
override the rollback require-
ment with a two-thirds vote.
"You would lose the half-
cent revenue sharing with the
state," Saunders said, "and I
would recommend you not do
that."
The county relies on the so-
called half-cent sales tax for


many of its capital projects.
Zappulla says a conservative
estimate of the half-cent rev-
enue is around $13 million
annually.
Zappulla says the special
meeting next week is set to
introduce the proposed budget.
Then on July 19, the com-
mission will go over the budget
one department at a time. That
meeting, also in Key West,
begins at 9 a.m. A third meeting,
on July 23, will finish up the
departmental review. That meet-
ing will be in Marathon.

Fire officials


question plan


Commissioners
grill chief,
he stands firm
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com


Key Largo's volunteer fire
chief was grilled by emer-
gency-services district commis-
sioners about a new proposal
for promoting firefighters to the
officer ranks within the depart-
ment.
The issue, whether to hold
Key Largo firefighters' promo-
tions to state standards, was
raised at the Key Largo Fire
and Emergency Medical
Services' District's Monday
public workshop to kick off
budget talks for the fire depart-
ment. Ambulance Corps budget
meetings will get started later
this month.
Chief Sergio Garcia raised
the possibility the department's
two paid firefighters could pass
a yet-to-be implemented test
and be made officers, which he
said would require raising their
more-than $41,000 annual
salary.
Fire and EMS commission-
ers Tom Tharp and Marilyn
Beyer said there are likely vol-
unteers in the department who
are more qualified for promo-
tions than the paid members.
But Garcia said the depart-
ment has submitted a curricu-
lum to the state for an officer
training course. If accepted, it
will qualify those who pass the
test as both local and state offi-
cers.
He said the rank-and-file
firefighters prefer the proposed
course over promotions based
on seniority.
"[The firefighters] just don't
want to get a badge. They want
to read the books," Garcia told
the four commissioners present
at the meeting.
But three of the four com-
missioners said Garcia should
begin promoting officers now.
*The department has four offi-
cers and about 50 members
total.
"You're self-imposing a
tougher standard," Com-
missioner Bill Andersen told


S'j
Garcia.
"You already have people in
the department who are.quali-
fied as far as their training.
They may not have taken the
test before, but they are quali-
fied," Beyer said.
"You're making it too hard
for people to do, especially
when you have people now that
are qualified," Tharp said.
He said the process has
become political, citing Ike
Beal, a Key Largo firefighter
who was demoted from battal-
ion chief earlier this year after
he lost to Garcia in the election
to be department chief.
Tharp said Beal, along with
several firefighters who are
members of the Homestead Air
Reserve Base's fire department,
are officer material.
"Why are we holding them
up?" Tharp asked Garcia.
Garcia said officers should
pass the proposed curriculum
from now on.
"I can tell you right now that
I'm not going to water down
the system," he said. Garcia has
maintained that Beal's demo-
tion was not political.
Garcia will likely have to
pare down his $1.4 million pro-
posed budget before it is adopt-
ed in October. Last year's Fire
Department budget was about
$1.2 million.
Increases this year are due to
the possibility of hiring three
more paid firefighters and buy-
ing equipment for the new $2.1
million Key Largo north fire
station.
Tharp told Garcia the depart-
ment should reduce its budget
to be in line with reductions for
tax relief recently passed by the
Florida Legislature.
"Bottom line is this is more
than a quarter-million [dollar]
increase from last year. I think
we're going to look very bad if
we're going to ask for more tax
dollars than last year," Tharp
said.
Key Largo's emergency dis-
trict was formed in 2005. Cindy
Lawson, the district's financial
consultant, said the district has-
n't existed long enough to be
subject to the state-mandated
tax cuts.

Lobster poacher
sentenced to 3 years

A Key West man will spend
three years in jail for stealing
scores of lobsters from Cudjoe
Basin traps last November.
Monroe Conuty Circuit Court
Judge Mark Jones on Monday
sentenced Javier Nodal, 38, to
the long prison term for molest-
ing lobster traps and fleeing and
eluding in a vessel, both felonies,
as well as a misdemeanor charge
of obstruction of an officer with-
out violence.
While patrolling Key West
waters Oct. 7, 2006, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission officers Rama Shuster
and James Johnson saw an
unmarked skiff pulling lobster
traps in Cudjoe Bay.
According to Shuster, when
they approached the boat, Nodal
started throwing crawfish out of
the skiff and tried to flee. A chase
ensued but Nodal was caught.
Eric Wicks prosecuted the
case for State Attorney Mark
Kohl.


Key West courtroom was
reserved for an hour and a half
for the sentencing.
If the defense's motion for the
continuance failed, the attorneys
had another motion they would
have filed, to disqualify the pros-
ecutor from the case. It says the
State Attorney's Office has
"revealed plea negotiations and
has denigrated possible defense
mitigation...."
Smith also has problems with
Miller talking about the case
Monday on a radio show.
"There is a Florida ethics rule
prohibiting any lawyer, defense
or prosecution from making
extra-judicial comments that
could prejudice a legal proceed-
ing," State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said.
Goll and Milo turned down a
negotiated plea bargain that
would have given the pair a year
in jail and five years of probation.
The decision now rests with
Miller, who will hear the case
again at an undetermined date.
The maximum sentence for
the third-degree felony is five
years in prison and/or up to
$1,000 in fines.
The crime, stemming from
March 24, 2006, also involved
Theo Derleth, 19, of Marathon,
as well as one teen whose identi-
ty is unavailable because he was
a juvenile. Derleth and the juve-
nile were the lookout and driver,
and considered less culpable than
Goll and Milo. They received
pretrial intervention.
Big Pine resident Gail
Kulikowsky was at the Key West
courthouse Tuesday to witness
the sentencing.

What kind of humanity does that
show?" she asked.
Milo was wearing a U.S.
Army-uniform and his command-
ing officer and top sergeant were
there for support. The' uniform
received some unfavorable reac-
tions from those present.
"I don't think he should wear
the uniform," Kulikowsky said.
"I have loved ones who are in
Iraq right now who haven't
pleaded guilty to felonies. I think
it's a strategic move and I think
it's insulting for people who are
actually in the military right
now."
Eden said Milo is active Army
and was set to leave for Iraq July
15. He was recently promoted to
E-5-a sergeant rank.
"He worked his butt off to get
to E-5 status," Eden said.
Big Pine resident Brenda
Schneider was proud of the large
group of assembled for..the sen-
tencing.
"I think it says something
when over 20 community people
from Big Pine come to the court-
house and support a strong feel-
ing towards the environment,"
she said.
"People have really come out
of the woodwork," Smith said. "I
have handled heinous murder
cases and I've never had so much
public interest against these
young guys I haven't seen
anything like it. Not to lessen
what they did, but I don't think
they should be crucified or made
examples of.
"I've gotten all of these letters
saying that they're serial killers.
It's just really not true. They're
basically Florida Keys boys who
go fishing and hunting. They
thought it was a fishing viola-
tion."

Waterfront plans returning to commission


Planning panel
taking it up
on July 11
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The Monroe County
Planning Commission voted
unanimously in favor of extend-
ing a moratorium on redevelop-
ment of Keys waterfront, a
move commission members say
will allow time to tweak pro-
posed regulations aimed at pre-
serving what's left of public
access and working waterfront
in Monroe County.
For more than a year, a tem-
porary moratorium has slowed
the push to turn boatyards, fish
houses and marinas into luxury
condos. The moratorium sun-
sets this month, and the
Planning Commission's vote


urges the County Commission
to extent it six months.
Planning Commissioner
Sherry Popham says an exten-
sion would allow more time to
review a proposal aimed at pro-
viding incentives to landowners
to maintain existing uses rather
than opting to go residential.
At the same time, the
Planning Commission contin-
ued the working-waterfront pro-
posal until its July 11 meeting,
which convenes at the
Marathon Government Center
at 10 a.m.
County officials have been
working since mid-2004 to find
ways to sustain the commercial
fishing industry and its related
businesses as well as retain pub-
lic access to the water. As prop-
erty prices soared, more and
more landowners have been
lured into selling their water-


front holdings to condo devel-
opers.
"Once you lose that commer-
cial working waterfront, you
will never get it back," warned
attorney David Paul Horan, who
represents a number of Stock
Island property owners. "Stock
Island is Monroe County's only
deep-water port."
"We will lose $80 [million]
to $100 million a year that
comes into the local economy,"
said Doug Gregory, the county's
liaison with the commercial
fishing industry. "There are
about 1,000 families directly
related to commercial fishing.
There's only one thing that
threatens future commercial
fishing in Monroe County and
that's the loss of access to work-
ing waterfront."
Though staffers walked the
Planning Commission through
the waterfront proposal, the
commissioners refrained from


commenting on specifics of the
plan.
The proposal would allow
more housing on parcels zoned
as marine industrial, an idea
that garnered support from
some of the speakers attending.
Attorney David deHaas, who
represents Robbie's Safe
Harbor Marine Enterprises,
asked the commission to con-
sider more density on the water-


front.
Probably the most controver-
sial aspect of the proposal
would require landowners to
maintain a certain percent of an
existing waterfront use when
redeveloping.
"We have to address [other]
issues before we come up with
arbitrary percentages," Popham
said, including assessing the
future needs of the community.

A symbol of rebirth

worthy of celebration

What better way to celebrate the nation's birthday today
than paying tribute to our national symbol, the bald eagle?
Elsewhere in today's Keynoter, readers will learn that the
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has removed Haliaeetus leuco-
cephalus from the endangered species list.
They even held a ceremony in Washington, D.C., to cele-
brate this milestone, using the Jefferson Memorial as symbol-
ic backdrop.
For those youngsters out there who haven't a clue about
why the bald eagle was ever on the endangered species list,
it's helpful to recall the widespread use of pesticides like
DDT in the 1950s and 1960s.
Go to the library and check out a copy of "Silent Spring"
and learn more about how we poisoned rivers and streams,
killing fish and birds and nearly erasing the bald eagle entire-
ly.
The only eagle species indigenous to North America, it was
first placed on the endangered list in 1967. Now, 40 years
later, we breathe a little bit easier knowing that man can
reverse environmental damage and rescue species on the
brink.
It might also do well to recall a bit more history for our
younger readers by noting that the eagle wasn't the only
choice to be our national symbol.
Ben Franklin, among the original signers of the Declaration
of Independence (which we celebrate today), actually thought
the wild turkey more deserved the honor.
In a letter written to his daughter, the sage of Philadelphia
opined: "For my own part, I wish the Bald Eagle had not been
chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad
moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly.... too
lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing
Hawk, and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a
Fish.... the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him."
The wild turkey, Franklin argued, was a braver bird on the
whole, defending territory and mates with ferocious attacks.
And he found the analogy to American patriots' gutsy war
for independence an apt metaphor, concluding: "though a lit-
tle vain ... [the turkey is] a Bird of Courage and would not
hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards wio
should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on."
So tonight, as you watch the rockets' red glare in the night
sky, remember the redcoats, the turkey, and our founding
fathers who bled realblood in this most noble cause.

Islamorada should be represented by a village resident


EDITOR:
The village of Islamorada was incorporated
in part to be able to make decisions apart from
Monroe County and have local control over
local issues. Since incorporation, one of the
ways the village has decided to have more
control over local issues is by contracting with
the Monroe County Sheriff's Office for
'municipal policing.
In the next week, Village Manager Gary
Word will be interviewing for the new captain
for the Islamorada district of the Sheriff's
Office. Seven officers applied for this job; one
of those seven actually lives in the village.
Of the seven, the sheriff chose five that
would be interviewed in a process of the vil-
lage manager's choosing, and then from those
five one would be selected to be the new cap-
tain.
The village's contract with the Sheriff's
Office states in section 8.1 that "the
Islamorada village district be composed of
officers who are well acquainted with the
Islamorada village and its residents." Based
on this, one would think that the Islamorada
resident would be among the five, but one
would be wrong.


It appears that the lieutenant who lives in
the village and who has been second in com-
mand since the Islamorada district was formed
would not be invited to the table to interview.
It appears that even though Islamorada wanted
to make decisions apart from Monroe County
and to have local control, this will not happen
in the selection of the new captain.
What should be a decision based on qualifi-
cations and not politics and bubbaism is from
all appearances the exact opposite. This deci-
sion is all about politics and bubbaism.
On a personal note, when I was first elect-
ed to the Village Council in 2004, I held a
budget meeting and invited citizens to come
tell me what services they wanted to have pro-
vided by their village through their tax dol-
lars. Three people showed up to this meeting;
they were Sue Miller, Ron Levy and Tom
Brazil.
I think this says a lot about Lt. Brazil's
ability to be "well acquainted with the
Islamorada village," but I guess the village
will never know of his ability to lead, since he
will not even be given the chance to interview.

'Mandate' was no mandate at all


EDITOR:
Since the election last March, our two
new Marathon City Council members have
vigorously promoted the "mandate" they
received. This mandate changes depending
on the subject, but seems to include anything
they said or put in their campaign ads, an
opposition to spending taxpayer money and
an opposition in principle to spending and
other decisions made by the previous:coun-
cil.
So what is this mandate? The vast majori-
ty 67.3 percent (3,893) of registered
Marathon voters chose not to vote at all. I
would call that a significant rejection of all
the candidates running and the most impor-
tant result of the election. It probably also
signifies a deep dissatisfaction with our city
government.
Of the ballots cast by the 1,891 citizens
(32.7 percent of registered voters), only 28.9
percent of the votes.went to Mike Cinque
and 25.6 percent to Don Vasil. The other
votes (45.5 percent of those cast) went to the
other three candidates. In fact, 333 (17.6 per-
cent) of those voting could only find one
candidate instead of two to support.
Our new council members each received a
small minority of the votes cast by a minori-
ty of eligible Marathon voters. They simply
did not receive a mandate, individually or
together, despite their efforts and those of
their vocal supporters to convince us other-
wise. The emperor has no clothes.
The small minority that bothered to vote
in March did show a strong anti-incumbent
bias. Past Mayor John Bartus was obviously
viewed as an incumbent, as was Marjie
Mearns, who received slightly fewer votes


than the only other woman running,
"Bicycle" Joanie Nelson. Maybe our new
council members got elected because they
were the only non-incumbent candidates
besides Joanie Nelson, the only new faces.
Of course, no one has conducted any
quantitative research to discover what are the
primary concerns of citizens, why most did
not vote and why some voted as they did.
Perhaps the city or local press should do
some polling or research in anticipation of
the unincorporation referendum.
Thank goodness the next election will be
in November instead of March 2008; we
should expect a more representative voter
turnout.

Keys Opinion


Wednesday, July 4,2007


EDITOR:
Who would have thought that in
1624, when John Dunne wrote "and
therefore never send to know for
whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee"
that it would apply to a small piece of
the New World that would come to be
called the Florida Keys.
Dunne's metaphysical poem is
about death and how the death of
every man diminishes him and thus
humanity.
The Florida Keys are dying and
when they die, it will diminish each
one of us. Every Monroe County
Commission vote like the one to
rezone Lucky's Landing is yet another
death blow that further weakens its
already tenuous state. Never swayed
by the urge to restore, conserve, or
save, the Neolithic thinking troika con-
tinues their assault on what was once
called Paradise.
Nothing illustrates the decline of
political responsibility and the increase
of incompetence more than the County
Commission's lock-in-step voting
block of Dixie Spehar, Sonny McCoy,
and Mario Di Gennaro. From flipping
real estate, sinking ships, approving
double-digit tax increases while wast-
ing taxpayer money in boondoggles
such as the Sterling Process, millions


in capital project overruns, maintaining
a patently incompetent county admin-
istrator and voting for every develop-
er's whim, these individuals have
abrogated their stewardship responsi-
bilities and will carry to their graves a
legacy of dismantling one of our
nation's true treasures.
Fueled by greed and the certainty of
votes from these commissioners and
their likes, a development wave of
degradation has engulfed the Keys. It
made Key Largo a suburb of Miami. It
swept through Islamorada in a blink of
a purposely closed eye, and wholly
devoured the poor souls of Marathon.
Now it has crossed the Seven Mile
Bridge and hit the last refuge of what
was once the essence of the Keys: Big
Pine and The Lower Keys. -
The information age will assure that
their every vote, decision and word is
recorded for posterity and their
ignominy. Spehai and her two trouba-
dours will burden their children and
their children's children with their
infamous legacy. No Marjory
Stoneman Douglas, Commissioner
Dixie Spehar will be referenced when
the environmental destruction of the
Keys is cited.

Sewer funding plan is discriminatory


EDITOR:
I read the story about Marathon
sewers in the Keynoter with great
interest and much trepidation. The
article was informative but failed to
provide sufficient background regard-
ing the state mandate to upgrade to
advanced wastewater standards and
the state's Department of Community
Affairs commitment to fund 40 per-
cent of the total project.
Is the mandate a law legislated by
the state? Was the 40 percent commit-
ment part of that legislation? If the
latter is true and the state is not pro-
viding its share of the funding, then
that should invalidate the mandate. In
any case, I must agree with
Councilman Don Vasil that moving
forward without state funding certain-
ly takes even more pressure off the
state.
There are other aspects of this that
I hate to bring out but must in order to
fairly look at the total picture.
The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority brought in connections at
$4,700 per single-family home. After
the city completes its first two areas,
the projection for the remaining five
phases of the sewer plan are to be
accomplished at the same $12,800 per
home connection, but surely at a high-
er cost and most likely subsidized by
the state. It appears to me that proper-


ty owners in areas 4 and 6 of the
sewer plans are being discriminated
against.
That brings up another interesting
point. As an owner of multiple rental
units in the targeted area, I will be
forced to increase the lease rates I
charge to cover the higher tax bill for
next year. How will I be able to com-
pete with an equivalent rental in an
unaffected area? Once again, is this
not discriminatory, as I will not be
able to compete equally for prospec-
tive tenants?
How about affordable housing? We
have heard much about this recently.
This is just another step to exclude
lower-income families from being
able to find suitable housing in our
community. Excluding lower-income
families from living here is also, I
believe, a form of discrimination.
The best course is to halt construc-.
tion plans immediately and force the
state to honor its funding commitment
to bring the project in at a reasonable
cost for the taxpayer. If that fails,
there are other alternatives such as
voting out unresponsive councilmen
and legislators, and if time does not
permit that route, then a class-action
lawsuit based upon the aforemen-
tioned.

This is the new TraumaStar, which replaced the Sheriff Office's first medical transport.


Life-saving TraumaStar is no joke


EDITOR:
I was listening to the recent County
Commission meeting when I heard the
original TraumaStar helicopter referred
to as a joke.
The original TraumaStar was pur-
chased as a proof-of-concept vehicle. It
was believed that the helicopter would
fly an average of 12 missions per year,
certainly no more than 18 per year and,
depending on who you talked to, have a
projected life of three to five years.
Taking the outside numbers (18 per
year and a five-year life span), it was
expected that it would fly 90 times, at
which point the need would be demon-

Parrot Mission flies high

EDITOR:
I was watching my Lory parrot play
with toys and I am thankful she is here.
Two weeks ago, the travel cage top-
pled and she flew away. Key Largo is
blessed to have an avian behaviorist in
residence. Her name is Jenifer Dermer
and she runs the World Parrot Mission
in Key Largo, which is supported by the
Happy Feathers Gift Shop at mile mark-
er 99 bayside. The Web site is
www.worldparrotmission.org.
I have utilized Jenifer's services
before with screaming and training
issues, so I made a call and with her
help, I had my parrot, Cricket, back
home after a scary 20 hours that includ-
ed strong wind and drenching rain.
I really want our community to be
aware that we have a local avian behav-
iorist available to help with birdy
issues.

strated and the helicopter would be
replaced.
As it turned out, there are far more
traumas and emergency transfers occur-
ring in Monroe County than anyone sus-
pected. The original TraumaStar went
into service in March 2002 and just 15
months later (June 26, 2003) it flew
mission No. 90. It would go on to fly
201 more times before I left the pro-
gram in May 2005.
That "joke" was in service more than
three times longer than originally pro-
jected; that "joke" touched the lives of
more than 300 citizens of and visitors to
the Florida Keys.
In many cases, that "joke" was the
difference between life and death.

Foundation comes through

EDITOR:
This letter acknowledges the Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation of
Marathon as one of the most efficient and
prompt agencies in the Keys.
Mrs. Colleen Repetto and the rest of the
foundation's board-of directors are to be
commended for their speedy approval of
financial, medical and living assistance for
my son Walter, who recently underwent
major surgery. The foundation's charitable
and compassionate action will help matters
be more manageable for the next few
months.
To paraphrase the saying that a friend in
need is a friend indeed is indeed appropri-
ate for this foundation.

DIVING / From 1

FBI spokesman Richard
Kolko told the Associated Press
the advisory was routine. It was
not prompted by any specific ter-
rorism threat, he said.
The FBI advisory says dive
shops should pay attention to
"odd inquiries that are inconsis-
tent with recreational diving."
Such inquiries could include
"requests to dive in murky water
or sewer pipes" or interest in
"combat swimming" skills,
according to the Anti-Terrorism
Joint Task Force advisory.
Bob Holston of Dive Key
West considers the request rea-
sonable.
"If we saw anything suspi-
cious, we would alert them,"
Holston said. "But I don't think
we will see anything."
The Diving Equipment and
Marketing Association, a leading
industry group, urged its member
businesses to heed the advisory.
"DEMA ... is lending its full sup-
port and cooperation to .the
authorities," group officials said
in a mailing to members.

FBI has shown an interest in dive
students seeking specialty skills
that could be used for terrorism.
Agents delivered the message
to Keys shops in person in May.
2002, when the 9/11 attacks were
fresh in the memory.
FBI officials indicated in 2002
that dive operations eventually
could be asked to supply infor-
mation on all dive students.
Now the agency is asking
instructors only to be alert for
certain "threat indicators" that are
seen in combination with other
suspicious requests.
"Threat indicators, taken in
isolation, generally reflect legiti-
mate recreational and commer-
cial activities," the advisory says.
"In combination with other infor-


mation, they can indicate possi-
ble links to criminal behavior."
Requests for intense underwa-
ter navigation training, or instruc-
tion in use of rebreather systems
and diver-propulsion vehicles
were included on the list.
"Requests for advanced diver
training by applicants from coun-
tries where diving is not a com-
mon recreational activity" was
listed, along with students "pay-
ing cash for diving instruction."
Said Holston, "If someone
shows up who wants specialized
training and equipment and
wants to pay in cash, we'll pay
attention.
"We'll take their cash, then
turn them in."

'The Hef' getting


'Playcat Mansion'


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys will soon be
home to another of Playboy
founder Hugh Hefner's mansions
- only this one will be meant for
kittens instead of bunnies.
Plans are in the works at Stand
Up for Animals in Marathon for
the "Playcat Mansion," the result
of a $5,000 donation Hefner
recently made to the shelter.
Shelter director Linda
Gottwald said the enclosure will
be a roughly 20-foot tall, 20-foot
wide and 6-foot deep "play area
with a manmade climbing tree."
The plan is also to add artificial
plants, shelves for the cats to rest
on and about a dozen "kitty cub-
bies."
No doubt the man of the house
will be The Hef, a recent addition
to the shelter that Gottwald
named in honor of the magazine
mogul's gift. Three kittens named
after Hefner's girlfriends have
already been adopted.
"He was the only tomcat at the
time the whole thing was going
on," Gottwald joked of the now-
neutered orange male. "Plus, I
thought he was exceptionally
handsome."
The Hef was brought to the
shelter by residents of Boyd's
Key West campground on Stock
Island, where residents were con-
cerned everyone feeding him was
moving away and he would not
survive.
Gottwald originally sent a let-
ter to Hefner asking for assis-
tance because of an anticipated
heavy influx of cats due to the
feral-cat roundup underway at
the National Key Deer Refuge on


Big Pine Key.
"The way they were talking
about this trapping, I thought we
might get a hundred cats,"
Gottwald said, noting only two
she knows of have been captured
thus far. "The trappers turn them
over to local animal control and I
thought 'How am I going to
finance this?'"
.Gottwald learned from a
Miami Herald report that the
endangered Lower Keys marsh
rabbits threatened by the feral-cat
population on Big Pine were
named after Hefner and decided
to contact him. Hefner responded
through representatives within
days.
Marsh rabbits (sylvilagus
palustris hefneri) were named
after Hefner when he funded a
1980 study identifying the
species.
"I was thrilled he even read
the letter because I'm sure he gets
millions of letters everyday,"
Gottwald said. "It was really a
surprise that he would answer. I
came in and there was a note that
said, 'Call Playboy.'"
Gottwald even appeared on
former Playmate and current
Hefner girlfriend Bridget
Marquardt's show on Sirius
Satellite Radio to talk about the
cat roundup and donation.
"She was real nice," Gottwald
said of Marquardt. "She asked if
she could have a couple of the
rabbits for pets and I had to
explain to her they are an endan-
gered species, soI don't think so."
Gottwald said a portion of the
$5,000 will go toward funding
spav and neuter clinics.

2 sides happy on tier ruling


Judge rules
county plan
is arbitrary
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It was intended to simplify
future land development in the
Keys, but challenges to the so-
called tier land-mapping system
have mired it in legal limbo.
Administrative Law Judge
Donald R. Alexander last week
ruled on a year-old challenge
filed by two environmental
organizations that charged the
system did not go far enough in
protecting sensitive habitat from
overdevelopment.
Both sides seemed optimistic
after Alexander issued his ruling.
"Overall, the tier system is a
good idea," Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said. "It
needs some refinement, but the
concept was found valid."
Richard Grosso, the attorney
for the groups Last Stand and the
Florida Keys Citizens Coalition,
said the ruling is favorable in that

it challenged the criteria the
county had established for deter-
mining what parcels should be
protected.
"It's clear from the order that
the county arbitrarily under-pro-
tected a lot of important lands,"
Grosso wrote in an e-mail mes-


There are
eight pending
takings cases
against the
county, and
a past
settlement
in a takings
case cost
the county
$6 million.


sage, "but also that the vast
majority of lands in the county
are not impacted by the ruling
and the need to re-do many of the
maps."
Alexander ruled a proposal to
set aside parcels of four acres or
more for protection was arbitrary.
"Four-acre tracts of natural
areas are not insignificant or
common," he wrote, "they are
huge by Keys standards. Simply
.because larger parcels have more
value than smaller ones does not
mean that smaller hammocks ...


are unimportant."
"The ruling on the four-acre
threshold is crucial," said Dennis
Henize, a board member of Last
Stand. "That was one of the
changes that was added late in the
process and it really rankled us."
Alexander also objected to the
county allowing landowners to
petition for a change in designa-
tion of smaller parcels simply by
paving a road on the property.
Alexander said the loophole
could allow a landowner to cir-
cumvent a protected tier classifi-
cation.
"That could be fixed pretty
easily so that someone couldn't
skirt the [required parcel] size,"
Shillinger said.
The tier system would create
three levels, or tiers.
Tier 1 would be the most sen-
sitive land, Tier 3 would be the
easiest to develop. The system
includes a point system that pro-
vides incentives for developing in
Tier 3 and preserving Tier 1.
"We won on one of the most
important matters," Shillinger
said. "They had challenged our
ability to allow some possibility
of-development in Tier 1, which
could lead to an outright taking.
What we're trying to do is bal-
ance protection and property
rights and develop a system that
is defensible from a liability
standpoint."
The county could face mil-
lions of dollars in lawsuits by
landowners who claim it deval-
ued their property. There are
eight pending takings cases
against the county, and a past set-
tlement in a major takings case
- known as the Shadek case
cost the county $6 million.

Eagles g(


de-listed

There are some
bonded pairs
in the Keys
By. RYAN McCARTHY
rinccarthy@keynoter.com

The United States received a
welcome birthday present nearly
a week ahead of its July 4 birth-
day when the bald eagle, our
national bird, was officially
removed from the endangered
species list.
At a ceremony on the steps in
front of the Jefferson Memorial
in Washington, D.C., Thursday,
Secretary of the Interior Dirk
Kempthorne declared that "the
eagle has returned."
"In 1963, the lower 48 states
were home to barely 400 nesting
pairs of bald eagles," Kempthome
said at the ceremony attended by
various government officials, and
even a group of Eagle scouts.
"Today, after decades of conser-
vation effort, they are home to
some 10,000 nesting pairs, a 25-
fold increase in the last 40 years."
According to a Washington
Post report, Florida is home to
the largest number of bald eagles
in the lower 48 states.
But Kelly Grinter of the
Marathon Wild Bird Center said
eagles are not commonly spotted
in the Keys. She said she knows
of bonded pairs on Grassy Key
and at Anne's Beach on Lower
Matecumbe Key, as well as an


active nest at the naval air station
on Boca Chica.
"I wouldn't say there were too
many nests in the Keys," Grinter
said, "but there are some."
Kempthore noted that at one
time, nearly 200,000 bald eagles
called the lower 48 states home
and the journals of famed
American explores Lewis and
Clark were filled with bald-eagle
sightings.
But as the American popula-
tion grew and expanded west-
ward, the eagle's food supply
decreased. Thousands were
intentionally killed in the early
20th century because they were
thought to be scavengers, while
at the same time DDT and other
pesticides posed a threat to the
eagle's numbers.
The bald eagle, the only
species of eagle indigenous to
North America, was officially
declared an-endangered species
in 1967. With the signing of the
landmark Endangered Species
Act in 1973, eagle habitats gar-
nered protection and their num-
bers began to increase.
In July 1995, the eagle's status
was upgraded to threatened by
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Commission.
Adult eagles reach three feet
in height and have a wingspan of
approximately eight feet. They
fly at speeds up to 100 mph when
diving, and can live to be 30
years of age in the wild.

Former Key West Mayor
Jimmy Weekley says developers
and special interests hold too
much sway in the city. That's
why the 20-year veteran of city
politics is throwing his hat in the
mayoral ring.
Weekley filed to run Monday
with the City Clerk's Office.
"There is a lot of unhappiness
with the lack of leadership in City
Hall," Weekley told the Keynoter.
"I've been listening to people,
and they say they don't see where
anything has been accomplished.
The city is stagnant. The only
ones being taken care of are the
developers."
Weekley, a Democrat, is chal-
lenging Republican incumbent
Morgan McPherson, who filed
his intent to run on May 4.
Weekley served 14 years as
the District 1 city commissioner
before being elected mayor in
1999. He served three terms as
mayor before McPherson
usurped him in 2005 by the
slimmest of margins.
McPherson garnered 2,706
votes to Weekley's 2,682 tak-


ing 50.22 percent of the ballots
cast.
Commissioners' terms, run for
four years, the mayoral term is
two.
Weekley, who owns the
Fausto's grocery stores in the
city, says he's considered long
and hard the prospect of reenter-
ing city politics.
"We as a community have lost
our sense of optimism," Weekley
said. "We need to bring that back.
I have always been able to work
with all groups of people and
organizations from the
Chamber [of Commerce] to [the
environmental] Last Stand -
and bring everyone to the table
fdr the common good of the peo-
ple."
McPherson announced in
early as December he intended to
run for another term, noting that
two years is a tight window for
accomplishing objectives he set
out in his campaign.
"The initiatives I've started
are in mid-phase," McPherson
said Tuesday, "whether it's
affordable housing or the process
in the city to- become more user

friendly and customer-service
oriented.
"It's been a great year and five
months and I'll put that year and
five months against his 20 years
any day."
Weekley prides himself in his
role as a consensus-builder, find-
ing an even ground on many
issues. His platform also includes
cleaning up city streets.
"The cleanliness of the island
in my estimation and I think in
the estimation of most residents
is unacceptable," Weekley wrote
in his campaign announcement.
"The welcome mat we lay out for
our visitors and residents visually
is far less pleasing than when we
first undertook the Clean and
Green program some years ago."
Candidate qualifying is the
week of Aug. 13 to 17. The elec-
tion is Oct. 2.


Cops stun

alleged

batterer

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies used a stun gun
to subdue a man who was trying
to escape after breaking into an
apartment in Key Largo and bat-
tering his girlfriend, agency
spokesman Greg Artman said.
Mark Waddell, 51, was arrest-
ed Monday night for assault, bat-
tery, criminal mischief, burglary
and resisting arrest.
Artman said deputies were
called to the apartment near mile
marker 98 shortly after 11 p.m.
and spoke to the woman after
entering her apartment through a
broken front door with a shat-
tered window and a bent screen.
She said Waddell, who lives
in an apartment at the same
building, broke in and battered
her. Deputies went to Waddell's
apartment but he locked the door
and refused to come out, Artman
said.
Deputies then heard him
break through the back window
of his apartment in an effort to
get away. They rushed to the
back and- ordered Waddell to
show his hands and get on the
ground but he refused despite
numerous warnings. Artman said
that's when they stunned him and
got him in handcuffs.

Boater's death


ruled murder


Monroe County Medical
Examiner Michael Hunter has
ruled murder in the death of a
man whose body was found
aboard a boat at Gilbert's Marina
in Key Largo late Sunday.
The autopsy showed he was
killed by blunt-force trauma.
But Sheriff's Office investi-
gators still haven't been able to
ID the body because of decom-
position.
But detectives believe the
victim was in his early 60s and
living aboard the boat.
Detectives say dental and fin-
gerprint comparisons will be
used to help ID the body.
Agency spokesman Greg
Artman said deputies initially
responded to the scene after a


C 9 ag ?e -


neighbor reported a foul odor
coming from the boat. The
occupant had not been seen in
several days.
Deputies found the badly
decomposed body and crime-
scene investigators were called
in to process the vessel.
Detectives initiated a death
investigation, which has turned
into a murder investigation fol-
lowing the results of the autopsy.
Detectives have interviewed
residents in the marina area and
have contacted several people
who they believe are family
members of the victim.
Anyone with information
should call the Sheriff's Office
or Crime Stoppers at (800) 346-
8477.

This is the

'Sirena,'
the

Key West
waters.


Sub starts plying waters


45-seater

to the Keys
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com


The first-ever passenger sub-
marine tour in North America has
opened in Key West.
Key West Submarines spent a
year wading through the unchart-
ed waters of regulation and certi-
fication to run the continent's
only daily commercial submarine
tour from the Westin Key West
Marina, Business Manager Adam
Van Tassell said.
Key West Submarines owners
and scuba enthusiasts Randy


Isham and others started opera-
tion wanting their whole family
- young, old, certified and not
- to experience the underwater
environment, Van Tassell says.
Starting with a three-person
submarine, they now run a 45-
person machine called the Sirena.
Paying for pilots, as submarine
operators are called, proved
expensive, enough to motivate
Sirena's owners to hire Van
Tassell to start up a daily dive
business. Submarine operators are
called pilots even though they are
licensed captains, and each sub-
marine pilot must be certified to
his or her vessel.
The Sirena came with a crew
from Saipan, capital of the U.S.


territory Northern Mariana
Islands, north of Indonesia and
west of the Philippines.
The submarine motors past the
wreckage of the Cayman Salvage
Master on its thrice-daily tour.
The owners of Key West
Submarines, diving each day at
10:30 a.m. and 12:30 and 2:30
p.m., hope to expand to as many
as seven dives each day at the
Cayman wreck, possibly adding
more sites. They also hope to
cross-market with other indus-
tries, such as dive shops, wreck-
age or history museums and
aquariums.

passengers hear only the hissing

Auto insurance law renewal possible


No-fault law
set to expire
in the fall
Associated Press

Gov. Charlie Crist said he is
"pretty close" to calling a special
legislative session to seek renew-
al of the state's no-fault automo-
bile insurance system, which is
set to expire Oct. 1.
Insurance companies have
been pushing to let get rid of the


state's requirement for motorists
to purchase $10,000 in personal
injury protection coverage. They
argue the system is so filled with
fraud and abuse that it cannot be
fixed.
Hospitals, though, have been
campaigning to keep the require-
ment, saying either they or inno-
cent accident victims who lack
health insurance will be stuck
with their medical bills.
"I favor the continuation of
personal injury protection," Crist


said, but offered no specifics on
when he would make the decision
on the special session.
Although he has the power to
call the session on his own, the
governor said he wants to consult
with House Speaker Marco Rubio
and Senate President Ken Pruitt.
The two legislative leaders also
have the authority to call a special
session.
Crist said he also is leaning
toward including an expansion of
the state's KidKare health insur-

Lawmakers failed to act on

The existing auto insurance
law enables injured motorists to
receive up to $10,000 in medical
treatment regardless of who is at
fault through the mandatory cov-

Without that coverage, vic-
tims would have to obtain com-

but may have to sue them and
their insurance companies, if they
have insurance, to seek reim-
bursement.
Accident victims also can rely
on their health insurance, but
hospital officials are worried
because about 25 percent of

when Medicare kicks in, lack
such coverage. They say hospi-

Rodriguez's heroics lead Marathon


Final-inning
double earns win
over Upper Keys
By KEVIN WADLOW
and RYAN McCARTHY
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Down to the last out of the last
inning Saturday, Ariel Rodriguez
slapped a run-scoring double to
give Marathon a 7-6 win over
local rival Upper Keys in the Age
11-12 District 8 Little League
Tournament.
Rodriguez went 3-for-3 with a
home run, while both Josue
Napoles and Yoniel Esquirol-
Lopez went 2-for-3 with home
runs of their own.
A game that seemed to belong
to Marathon was thrown into
doubt in the top of the wild sixth
inning, when the Upper Keys
mounted a desperation rally with
four runs to knot the contest at 6-6.
A Marathon single got the
Middle Keys team started in the.
bottom of the inning, but an
infield fly and a strikeout made it
look like extra innings would be
needed. Then a walk moved the
runner to second.
When Rodriguez lashed his
shot to the outfield, the game

Upper Keys hitters made short
work of Doral's all-stars Monday
in the second round of the Age 11-
12 Little League District 8
Tournament.
Brandon Joyce went 4-for-4
and drove in six runs as the Upper
Keys shelled Doral, 14-1.
"It was a great start to the
upcoming roll that we're going to


be on," Upper Keys head coach
Joe Joyce said.
Tyler Hudson got the com-
plete-game pitching win, limiting
Doral to just one score in the
game called after four innings.
After struggling against
Marathon pitching Saturday, the
Upper Keys collected a dozen hits
against Doral. Joyce led the way
with his three doubles and a sin-
gle.
Defensively, first baseman
Robert Lietaert snagged a line
drive that killed a Doral rally with
two runners on base.

Marathon majors

fall after strong start


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon 11- and 12-
year-old Little League team
lost what had been a close
game throughout Monday to
Kendall-Hammocks, 12-6.
Marathon trailed 7-6 head-
ing into the Kendall half of the
fifth inning, when the game
was delayed for two hours due
to lightning. When play
resumed, Kendall scored five
runs, including a grand slam,
to put the game out of reach.
The defeat dropped
Marathon to 1-1 thus far in its


six-game schedule.
Marathon head coach
Spook Roussin said the team
played well through five
innings but ran out of gas after
the long delay.
"It went back and forth all
game," Roussin said. "We had
at least two runners on base
every inning."
Marathon took a 2-0 lead in
the top of the second on a
Joseph Gonzalez single.
Kendall tied the game at 2-

ended as Marathon's winning run
crossed the plate. Marathon play-
ers mobbed Rodriguez after his
game-ending hit.
"We had good play all around,
it was a team effort win,"
Marathon head coach Spook
Roussin said. "We had strong
defense, timely hitting and good
pitching, so we played well in all
aspects of the game."
Rodriguez and Esquirol-Lopez
each belted two-run home runs to
put Marathon up 6-2 after five
innings on a sweltering summer
afternoon. The game, originally
scheduled for morning, was
delayed three hours by field work
at the Doral complex hosting the
tournament.
"We had trouble getting a hit
with guys on base," Upper Keys
head coach Joe Joyce said.
"Marathon has a good team, and

2 in the bottom half, but
Marathon would score on a
bases-loaded walk to Kevin
McKeon in the third to reclaim
the lead, 3-2.
Marathon took a 5-2 lead in
the fourth inning after Sean
Roussin's two-run double
scored Gonzalez and Jacob
Logan.
Down 7-5 in the fifth, Taylor
Davis scored on an RBI double
by Patrick Ryan to bring
Marathon within one before the
game was stopped.
"The [final] score was not
indicative at all" of how close
the game was, Roussin said.


had about four hits, and they were
scattered."
Esquirol-Lopez started the
game for Marathon and kept the
Upper Keys in check, but was lift-
ed because of the pitch count after
five innings.
The Upper Keys got two sin-
gles, and added runners on walks
and errors to shove four runs
home.
Before the sixth, the Upper
Keys struggled to assemble a big
inning. In the fourth, the Upper
Keys put two runners on with no
outs, but managed just one run
before the inning ended:
Marathon answered in the bot-
tom of the fourth with two runs,
one driven home by Taylor Davis'
double. The rally nearly kept
going, but an apparent score on a
double steal was erased because a
runner left the bag too soon.
A two-out, two-run homer by
Rodriguez in the fifth after a
Joseph Gonzalez single put
Marathon up by four. Marathon
loaded the bases again, but left all
three on board.
Marathon had excellent defen-
sive play from its infield, as sec-
ond baseman Napoles and first
baseman Gonzalez combined on
three key putouts. Davis stabbed a
sharply hit Upper Keys line drive
in the third at shortstop.
Upper Keys starter Brandon
Joyce pitched through three
innings.

Kendall too much


for Marathon


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon 9- and 10-year-
old Little League team struggled
Monday against Kendall-
Hammocks, the tournament's top
team, losing 12-1.
Marathon coach Adam Pierce
said the team's pitching woes con-
tinued to be an issue against their
strongest opponent to date.
Kendall came into the game unde-
feated at 5-0.
"This year pitching has been
an issue with this pitch count,"
Pierce said of a league rule stating
pitchers can throw a maximum of
75 pitches.
Kyle Pierce and Carlos
O'Farrill continued their strong
play, as each went 2-for-2 with a
triple and a double.
Kyle was unavailable to start
against Hammocks, but Adam
Pierce said O'Farrill was able to
keep Marathqn in the game
through three innings.
After O'Farrill reach his pitch
limit, Marathon turned to first-
time pitcher Mark Keller.
"He never pitched before and
he did the best he could," Pierce
said. "With a little development
he'll be a fine pitcher.
Pierce said the coaches have
been proud of the way their team
has played up to their level of

competition in this year's toura-
ment. Despite drawing from a
pool of only 116 kids total for
both their major and minor league
teams, Marathon has continued to
play well in every game.
"It's been a whole team effort,
our only problem is pitching,"
Pierce said. "Our infield and out-
field are solid."
Marathon ends its seven-game
tournament with a matchup
against the Upper Keys squad.
Originally scheduled for
Friday, the game will likely be
played Thursday at 7 p.m. at the
Key Largo Community Park.

Second baseman Jonathan
Mitjans raced to pick up a
grounder behind the bag and
made the throw to first for anoth-
er key putout, the coach said.
After a break for July 4, the
Upper Keys return to action with
a 7 p.m. Friday game against
Homestead at Doral Field.
Brandon Joyce will get the
pitching start Friday.
The Upper Keys' defensive
lineup for the tournament opener
included John Lietaert at catcher,
Robert Lietaert at first, Tyler
Hudson at shortstop and Kalen
Carter at third. In the outfield
were Jimmy Rhyne, Josh Sands
and Cody Richards.
Each team in the District 8
tournament plays a round-robin
of six games to determine playoff
spots.

Key and Capt.
Tom White enjoy
life on the water
in the Florida
Keys
backcountry.
White, a great
fly caster, died
last week.


Keys lose true legend


There was a man who lived
here in the Keys who was one of
the finest of pure fly casters who
has ever lived. He was sought out
by thousands of fly fishermen to
help with their unsolvable casting
issues, similar to the way Tiger
Woods would seek out the advice
of his trusted college golf coach.
You won't find his name grac-
ing fishing rods, fly-line, reels,
outdoor apparel or sunglasses,
although I'm sure he's had his
offers.
In a sport where sometimes
ego rules supreme, I can't recall
ever hearing this man use the
words "me," "I" or "myself."
The bare board on his back
porch in Marathon has been
signed by a who's who in fly fish-
ing the world over.
He was the'first fly caster to
pass the Master Certified Angler
exam from the Federation of Fly
Fishermen and was in the process
of obtaining his master's using
only his left hand. He also sat on
the federation's board of gover-
nors. He was a junior partner in
the G. Loomis rod company when
it was founded in the early 1980s.
This man came in second three
years ago in the ESPN Sport
Fishing Games in the fly division
filmed in Islamorada, and was the
only fly caster out of the competi-
tors to shoot his fly line through
all three hoops 80 feet from
where he stood. And he had the
distinction of holding eight fly
rods in each hand and was able,
with a running start, to sustain the
false casts of all 16.
His name is Tom White.
Tom was born in Norman.


Ark., and
was 66
When he
'- '.<, passed
V_ away last
'-" ^ Saturday in
,r 10 rZ Vancouver,
Wash. Tom
had been
battling
brain can-
cer the past
six months.
Tom's
Cal Sutphin reputation
in fly cast-
ing was unparalleled.
He was friends with the Lefty
Krehs, the Stu Aptes and the Jake
Jordans, although most of the time
you would find him instructing
just everyday, students who just
"happened" to stop by his house
on how to stop creeping with their
back cast.
Apte of Tavemier said, "Tom
not only is one of the greatest fly
casters in the world, but was one
of the finest teachers of fly casting
in the world.... He never felt the
need to really promote himself."
Tom hosted a twice-a-year cer-
tification course in Marathon for
fly casters who want to teach fly
fishing or just improve their cast-
ing. He would sternly remind any
guide that know it or not, they
absolutely were a teacher the sec-
ond a client stepped foot on their
boat.
Great friend Jerry Simon of
Lower Matecumbe reflects, "Tom
was my friend and helped me
immensely with my fly fishing.
I'd make the same mistakes that
everyone else would make like


line tangled around my ankles and
shoelaces, and Tom would never
get angry at all. One of the great-
est traits he had in all of the times
I aggravated him was that I never
heard him swear or use the lord's
name in vain. I thought that was
pretty remarkable."
Fellow Federation of Fly
Fishermen instructor. Dusty
Sprague speaks of Tom's friend-
ship.
"Tom is one of the best roll
casters in the world and teachers
of roll casting.... He is one of the
most caring and sensitive people I
have ever met and I really miss
him."
Not knowing me except for my
voice on the radio, Tom heard me
the day after Christmas three
years ago brag about my wife
buying me my first fly rod. He
drove to the radio station on Boot
Key and waited for me to get off
the air. He introduced himself and
said he'd be honored to give me
my first fly lesson.
Well, three years later, know-
ing Tom White was my honor.
Tom was my mentor, friend and
most importantly my fishing
buddy.
To all fly fishermen and ladies
who knew Tom, on your next trip
out to the flats, tip a cold Corona
to Tom after your fishing is done.
You know he would always have
a cold one waiting for you aboard
for the ride home.
His family asks to share your
favorite Tom White story through
e-mail to nataliedriscoll@msn
.com to share the stories at a
memorial service in Centralia,
Wash.. July 14.

Watch the fireworks
while dropping
nighttime lines
Here we are at another holi-
day.
This is a big one for all of us
in this country, and also one of
the biggest for this area, as it
marks the middle of dolphin
fishing season. It also marks the
time when many start to get
excited about the upcoming lob-
ster season (the two-day mini-
season is only three weeks
away). It is when you will see
more boats on the water at one
time than any other time of the
year.
All throughout the Keys, just
about every type of boat will be
on the water for tonight's annual
fireworks displays. In the
Middle Keys, just off Sombrero
Beach is where you will find
hundreds of boats anchored for
the better part of the day. If you
haven't done it, you have missed
it. It is an awesome view from
the water as well as one of the
-most relaxing evenings you will
have with family and friends.
For some, it is also a good
chance to take advantage of an
evening of fishing while enjoy-
ing the shows. That's right, I said
shows.
In the Middle Keys, if you


* anchor out
a little far-
ther than
just at the
beach, like

F Washer-
woman
iw t o Shoal or
even at the
reef, you
will be able
to take in
not only
Dave Navarro those fire-
works
from Marathon but also get to
view those from Big Pine Key
and even Islamorada.
I've done this several times
and it can be enjoyable. You
don't get all of the big bangs that
you hear closer to shore, but you
get all of the sights. You also
usually come in with a good din-
ner for your efforts.
The best bite will no doubt be
in the early mornings, when the
fish get their first opportunity to
feed that day. In my days of
commercial dolphin fishing, I
always found the first three to
four hours of the day is when I
caught more than 80 percent of
my fish for the day. They would
hit just about anything that
moved and were not picky as
they get later in the day.
This was particularly true
with the larger schoolies that


TEHTETDNES I N TH ES.


37-


TyTTXr rXrrm IY 1: i Ix ;Trr!TT I-r1I


would make your day in a hurry.
The little ones almost always bit
but the larger ones were a little
tougher, which is probably how
they got to be larger.
Now with the calmer seas that
we usually have in July, the
opportunity to cover ground is
there. This is where I have
excelled with the use of high-
speed lures. I prefer the Billy
Baits, which are designed to
work at higher speeds as well as
a regular trolling speed.
I like to work around 12 to 15
knots, which allows me to cover
two to three times the amount of
water that someone would at 5 to
8 knots, the usual trolling speed
with baits. Over the period of a
normal day, I will have covered
close to 100 miles while working
with baits.
Just by the sheer numbers;
you can see the opportunity of
running across more fish exists
by covering twice the ground.
Don't be fooled by the speed.
When you are running out at
20 knots and you see the flying
fish shoot out of the water and
fly right past you, you realize the
dolphin catch them all day long.
You need to understand that dol-


phin regularly achieve speeds in
excess of 25 knots while feeding
and even greater speeds when
they are the prey (so would I!).
You will find that your catch
ratio of both tuna and wahoo
increases with a little speed, as
well.
Another thing you may want
to try is what I always do. I put
out at least two of the Mini
Turbo Slammers when I reach
100 feet of water. I vill leave
them in until I return to about the
same depth at the end of the day.
This way, I am fishing the entire
day. What's to say that there are
no fish in all of the water that


you are covering while you are
seeking a weed line or some
debris?
Over the past 10 years or so, I
have picked up most of my
largest fish in the middle of
nowhere, not around any -sruc-
ture or floating objects. I consid-
er these fish bonus fish that I
normally would not have caught
had I only been fishing weed
lines. Give it a try and I think
you will be pleasantly surprised.
