But number of
boat accidents
falls significantly
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Despite a significant drop in
the number of accidents on the
water, the Florida Keys remain
the state's most dangerous place
to go boating.
"We just have so much more
boating traffic down here," said
Officer David Dipre of the local
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission contingent.
"It gets so busy that some-


times it's more like driving on the
road than being on the water."
In 2006, Monroe County saw
75 reported boating accidents,
which included three fatalities.
That's the highest county total in
Florida, according to an annual
FWC report.
However, it's also a 38 percent
drop from the 120 accidents
logged in the Keys during 2005,
when Monroe County had six
deaths and more than twice the
number of accidents as the sec-
ond-highest county.
Palm Beach County, as usual,
was the second most accident-

9 Paring up to $2 million off
the proposed budget for the
Monroe County School District
proved no easy task Tuesday, so
the School Board agreed to wait
until next week to vote on any
proposed cuts.

Acevedo has presented; a pro-


posed general-fund budget for
2007-08 of $90.77 million, a
$938,000 increase over the
2006-07 year.
"We have a board that has
focused heavily on budget,"
Acevedo told the Keynoter
before Tuesday's workshop.'
"Their desire is to cut as much
as possible without cutting
services."
A hiring freeze might be an
important part of cutting district
costs, a move that board mem-

'Strait Divide'


The Florida Keys and Cuba
have more in common than
having families split by the
Florida Straits.
The Keynoter and Keys
Sunday are going to shed light
on our commonalities as
well as some differences in
a special report that starts this
Saturday in the Keynoter and
L'Attitudes, continues in Keys
Sunday, and concludes in the
June 18 Keynoter.
"Strait Divide" is the prod-
uct of a Keynoter trip to Cuba
for two weeks at the end of
April for a tour through the
country, from Havana to the
Bay of Pigs, Cienfuegos,
Cayo Largo and more.
Saturday's installment
kicks off with stories and pho-
tos about a variety of issues


both locales deal with: fish-
eries, water quality and
tourism.
L'Attitudes will look at the
arts and dining. Keys Sunday
will offer stories on diving
and tourism.
The special report will be
posted at www.keynoter
.com, and photos will be
posted on the site's "Photo
Gallery" link.
Keynoter Deputy Editor
Jessica Machetta will discuss
the stories and adventures at 9
a.m. Friday with Cal Sutphin
on "From the Water," the
WFFG AM-1300 radio show
that airs from 7 to 10 a.m.; and
Saturday at 10 a.m. with

DCA housing plan revived


Agency roadmap
was created

7 years ago
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Seven years ago, the state
Department of Community
Affairs laid out a roadmap to
dealing with the dearth of afford-
able housing in Monroe County.
Now County Commissioner
George Neugent wants to resur-
rect the state's "Operation
Seamless."
"The world is full of cities
with high-rise buildings, unbear-
able traffic and all those wonder-
ful things associated with devel-
opment," Neugent wrote in a let-
ter to his fellow commissioners.
"Half-baked convenience-based
solutions by laymen.on a devel-
opment mission could destroy all
that we hold dear."
Neugent said DCA's plan
needs closer scrutiny by the com-
mission, especially in light of the
fast disappearance of mobile-
home parks throughout the Keys.


Among strategies offered by
DCA:
+ "Ensure that no conver-
sions of currently affordable
properties occurs."
Legislate a continuous rev-
enue stream for the Monroe
County Housing Authority.
+ Propose an increase of the
local tourist bed tax for afford-
able housing purposes.
Encourage local govern-
ments to adopt employer housing
programs so larger employers are
responsible for on-site employee
housing.
+ Convert "smaller, older
motels" into affordable housing.
Reduce the demand for
affordable housing by limiting
transient and commercial devel-
opment that "employs low-
income service workers."
"This has been swept under
the rug for seven years," said Bill
Loewy a member of the county's
Workforce Housing Task Force.
Loewy brought the plan to the
County Commission several
months ago, pointing out the
state has long recommended pre-


serving existing affordable hous-
ing.
Neugent acknowledges that
mobile-home parks eventually
need to be upgraded.
"I propose that, so as not to
displace any of our residents, we
redevelop through attrition," he
wrote.
Over the past year, the owners
of several Keys mobile-home
and RV parks have issued evic-
tion orders to tenants with plans
of replacing low-rent units with
luxury housing. Some develop-
ers have offered to swap afford-
able housing on the sites with the
ability to transfer market devel-
opment rights to waterfront
parcels, a move at which the task
force and County Commission
have balked.
Neugent said the county
should also consider buying
mobile-home parks, an idea that
was fairly popular three or four
years ago but may not fly with
the current County Commission.
The plan will be on the agen-
da for the July 18 commission
meeting, which begins at 9 a.m.
at the Harvey Government
Center in Key West.


Florida leads nation in boating deaths


BOATS / From 1

prone spot in 2006 for boats, with
65 reported crashes.
Miami-Dade, Pinellas, Lee,
Broward, Collier, Brevard,
Escambia and Duval round out
the list of counties with high
boating accident rates. The state's
top 10 most dangerous counties
accounted for 56 percent of acci-
dents statewide, which includes
inland lakes and canals.
Florida reached a new all-time
high in the number of registered
boats, with 14,002 new registra-
tions for a record 1,024,375
boats.
Monroe County has 29,392
registered recreational and com-
mercial boats, along with the
untold number of boats trailered
or navigated south to the Keys.
More than half of Monroe's
75 accidents were attributed to
operator inattention, careless
operation or failure to maintain a
proper lookout.
"I don't think 'ive ever seen a
justified accident wher it was
completely unavoidable,' Dipre


said. "About 99 percent of the
time, some type of operator error
is involved."
Busy channels, harbor
entrances, and waters near mari-
nas or resorts are common areas
for Keys accidents, Dipre said.
"People need to pay attention
and learn to operate their boat in
a manner that is considerate of
others," he said. "We still have
too many accidents occurring,
and the fact of the matter is, we
should not."
Speeding was cited as a cause
in seven Keys accidents last year.
"Operator inexperience" was list-
ed as the cause in three. Eight
were attributed to mechanical or
equipment failure.
Twenty-four of the county's
75 accidents resulted in an injury,
with a total of three killed and 35
injured.
Florida leads the nation in
boating deaths with 69 fatalities.
"All but eight of the fatalities
were the result of drowning, and
none of the drowning victims
were; we armg life jackets," says
the FWC state report.
Other states with high boat-


ing-accident rates include E
California, Texas, Missouri and tvn
Arizona.
Monroe boat accidents caused WED
$2.65 million in damages in CO
2006. There were 19 collisions
between vessels, and eight crash-
es into fixed visible objects such
S, I' rOMMI.'"
as markers or docks. Five acci- .
dents were caused by hitting
underwater objects.
There were nine significant
grounding incidents reported
from the Keys. Eleven boats cap-
sized or swamped, and three
sank. Four caught fire.
July is the busiest month for
boat accidents in Florida, and 4 to Spotil
6 p.m. is the most common time.
State officials point out that
personal watercraft account for
11 percent of registered vessels in
Florida but accounted for 26 per-
cent of reported accidents.
Florida had 671 accidents in
2006, five more than in 2005.
There were 743 boat-accident
reports in 2004. T

Subsidy plan gets


mixed reviews


City would
allocate $250K
for landlords
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It seems devising a plan
everyone can agree on to help
solve the Keys' affordable hous-
ing crisis will be a difficult
process.
Tempers flared and the term
"socialist" was even used to
describe a landlord subsidy pro-
posal discussed in a Marathon
City Council workshop Friday at
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office hangar at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
The workshop was attended.
by all five City Council mem-
bers, city staff and representa-
tives from the city Planning
Commission and the Affordable
Housing Task Force.
The proposal entails offering
an annual $5,000 subsidy to land-
lords willing to meet to-be estab-
lished health and safety standards
and deed-restrict their property
for 10 years.
Task Force member Bill
Daniels reiterated the need to uti-
lize existing housing as a means
to solve the problem.
"We have to preserve what we
have and the only way a landlord
can afford to keep rent affordable
is with a subsidy," Daniels said.
But several council and audi-
ence members took exception to
certain aspects of the plan.
Councilman Mike Cinque, a
longtime landlord, felt the pro-
posal would "disturb the natural
vacancy rate in the system."
Cinque said by lowering the
vacancy rate, which he estimated
is between 15 to 20 percent, rents
would increase elsewhere due to
the subsequent shortage.
"I would rather see us work
towards a healthier economy in
Marathon," Cinque said, noting if
residents made better wages,
their housing options would not
be so limited.
Realtor Karen Farley-
Wilkinson said the proposal is
"socialist" in nature and that it
"smacks of the beginning of rent
control."
"Government is getting their


nose into private property and it
does not need too be there," she
said.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest
said she feels the proposal is
worth trying but said she's "more
inclined toward a seven-year
[deed restriction] rather than 10
because it is more attractive to
the owner."
"I'm a big fan of rentals and
we are so far down on" those,
Tempest said. "It's the most criti-
cal need we have."
"Real estate in the last six years
has tripled in Marathon," Council-
man Pete Worthington said.
"Things are just catching up in the

rather see us
work towards
a healthier
economy in
Marathon.'
- Councilman Mike Cinque


rental market to what the increases
in the property values were."
Daniels said the numbers in the
proposal are "open to be looked
at," but asked council to provide
the task force with direction.
"Do you guys want to spend
some money to address the prob-
lem or not?" Daniels asked.
"We tend to try and cover
every possible base," Task Force
representative Josh Mothner said
of apprehension toward the pro-
posal. "This is one case where we
should tailor this to what we want
to achieve. We need to get past
the idea that this has to be fair to
everybody."
According to the proposal, it
would cost the city $250,000 to
subsidize 50 landlords, while the
cost to build a single new unit of
affordable housing is between
$130,000 and $300,000.
Prospective landlords would
be required to keep the current
rent at or below current levels,
with the exception of an annual 3
percent cost-of-living adjust-
ment.

Village budget gets cut


And user fees
will increase
in some areas
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A draft general-fund budget
for Islamorada cuts about
$708,000 from the current
budget, according to a report to
Village Council members.
The Village Council, mieet-
ing in a budget workshop at
5:30 p.m. today, will receive
Village Manager Gary Word's
plan for a $10.5 million gener-
al budget, down from the cur-
rent $11.2 million.
Most of money raised
through property taxes goes
toward the general fund, which
covers most day-to-day opera-
tions.
Major construction projects


and the sewer system are con-
tained in separate budgets.
Finance Director Alice
Filinovich reported that action
by the Florida Legislature to
curb increasing property taxes
statewide would cap
Islamorada's millage at 1.68
mills ($1.68 per $1,000 of tax-
able assessed value), down
from the current 1.95 mills.
"This has resulted in a
reduction of ad valorem [prop-
erty] taxes by $584,372 based
on a 96 percent collection
rate," she wrote.
To make ends meet,.
Islamorada staff will recom-
mend raising some user fees
and seeking other sources of
income.
Specifics of the plan will be
discussed at the open workshop
today.
The Village Council meets
in regular session at 5:30 p.m.


Thursday.
In addition to land-use map
changes and a new building-
permit allocation plan, the
council will consider first read-
ing of an ordinance to establish
a program to increase the sup-
ply of affordable housing.
Other items include a pro-
posal to notify a sewer contrac-
tor that the company is in
default, and ranking of archi-
tectural firms to design the
marina bathroom pavilion and
community room.
Discussion of a law involv-
ing the Seabreeze Mobile
Home Park also is scheduled.
Park owners recently won a
decision saying Islamorada
should not have placed the
park under a moratorium for
redevelopment.
Both the budget workshop
and the regular meeting are in
the Islamorada Fire Station at
mile marker 81.8.

cially in a district where enroll-
ment has declined for several

Rodeo seeks to

Lt. Michael Bell, spokesman

son coming up July 25 and 26.

goes to payroll, according to
Acevedo.
At the same time, the board
members noted they would like
to find a way to provide a 10
percent pay raise for teachers
and other school employees.
Leon Fowler, president of the
United Teachers of Monroe
union, said his organization fully
supports a hiring freeze.
"We've never used our attri-
tion to its full value," Fowler
said. "We're losing students, so
you would think you'd lose
some positions."
Each year the district turns
over an average of 100 teachers.
Fowler mentioned that during
closed contract negotiations,
Acevedo said the district would
not fill 14 teaching positions.
Acevedo says there are about
600 teachers that will begin
work in August.
Board member Debra Walker
said Fowler was correct when he
noted that an increase in the
millage rate allowed the district
to hire more teachers, but she
said she wasn't sure a freeze is a
good idea.
.. "We have had an A district for
two years," Walker said, refer-
ring to the state's education rat-
ing system. "Part of the reason is
adding those people."


Board member Duncan
Matthewson said the district
could also cut costs by curtailing
travel expenses.
Matthewson said he'd like to
see 10 percent cut out of discre-
tionary spending, much of
which, he said, could come from
travel.
"Travel requires some trim-
ming," he said, "but we must be
careful not to undercut student
safety -or essential educational
services."
Board member John Dick
noted the proposed budget
includes $1.4 million for substi-
tute teachers.
"If you take teachers out of
the classroom [to travel], then
the substitute costs come into
play," Dick said.
The board played around
with the idea of changing its pol-
icy of holding 5 percent of the
budget in unencumbered
reserves.
"Your job is not to accumu-
late a large fund balance,"
Acevedo warned, "but to put
funding into classroom
resources."
The School Board will con-
vprle next Tuesday at 10 a.m. at
the Key West administrative
offices to vote on budget cutting
measures.

Diver's death is 7th of year


Keynoter Staff


A 23-year-old Key West man
died while diving on the USS
Curb wreck Sunday afternoon.
The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office reports the vic-
tim, John Lumley, was diving
and spearfishing 7:9 miles from
Key West with two other men,
Mark Woods, 46, and Michael
O'Conner, 38, both of Key
West.
The wreck lies upright in 185
feet of water and according to
reports, the three had planned
three dives for the day,.each to a
depth of about 160 feet.
They were on their second
dive when the two other divers
momentarily lost sight of
Lumley,' the report says. They
found him minutes later with his
regulator out of his mouth,
unconscious.


O'Connor details the incident
on www.spearboard.com,
writing that recovery efforts
were underway while ascending
and that because he hurried
through his decompression
stops to get Lumley to the sur-
Sface, he was taken to Mariners
Hospital's decompression
chamber in Tavernier.
Lumley was brought in to the
U.S. Coast Guard station in Key
West, where he was pronounced
dead.
The USS Curb is a 1943 300-
foot naval salvaging tug, sunk as
an artificial reef in 1983.
According to www.spear
board.com, a memorial serv-
ice for Lumley is Friday at the
Big Pine Methodist Church at 6
p.m. Donations may be made to
the Divers Alert Network.


Lumley is the seventh diver
to die in Keys waters this year.
In a separate incident, the
Coast Guard responded to a
diver in distress about 6 miles
off Key West Monday, accord-
ing to Lt. Michael Bell.
A female diver had "some
regulator problems and had
some potential difficulty finding
her octopus, and her dive part-
ner assisted her and got her up to
the surface," he said.
Bell says both incidents stand
to caution divers about the dan-
gers of the sport, especially with
lobster mini-season coming up
July 25 and 26.

The Marathon City Council
met with staff and Boot Key's
three parcel owners in a work-
shop Friday at the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office airplane
hangar to discuss future options
for the Boot Key Bridge.
Deputy City Manager C.J.
Geotis said the meeting was
meant to explore as many alter-
natives for the bridge as possible.
Potential resolutions included
handing the bridge over to the
parcel owners, removing it com-
pletely, repairing it or building a
new one.
"The decision council came
up with was to do the initial
repair and for the rest of the
money to set up a special taxing
district to share the' cost,"
Marathon Community Services
Director Susie Thomas, said.
Geotis had previously
informed council temporary
repairs to the failing bridge
would cost $1.5 million and the
ultimate cost of refurbishment
was estimated at $5.2 million.
Keys Radio Group owner Joe
Nascone, who owns 11 acres on
Boot Key, said the outcome of
the meeting was favorable.
"The most important thing


was to establish did the city want
to keep the bridge or go to the
next alternative," Nascone said.
"We need to get beyond all that
and I think we did."
In addition to the Radio
Group, 25 commercial lobster
boats also operate from
Nascone's lot. For that reason, he
said eliminating the bridge is not
an option.
"They can't do anything with
it, it has to be a functional
bridge," Nascone said. "Any less
than that and it would be a taking.
All this chatter about taking the
bridge down and putting in a
ferry service won't happen."
Nascone.said he feels the city
should explore the option of
dredging Sister's Creek so the
drawbridge can remain in the
down position and taller sailboats
can use that route.
Thomas said the city looked
into that "a couple of years ago
and we ran up against a great big
wall."
"We'll probably be taking a
resolution to council in the sec-
ond meeting in July to transfer
money from the city to the
[Florida Department of
Transportation] to oversee the
work," Thomas said.

Don't toss innovative

housing ideas aside

No good deed goes unpunished.
As evidence, read today's report from a Marathon workshop
where the city's Affordable Housing Task Force presented its
report.
Among ideas floated: subsidies for landlords who hold the line
on rents to keep them affordable.
Cries of "socialist" rang out at the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office airplane hangar, where the workshop was held.
Bystanders might have wondered what planet they were visit-
ing, especially given the widely acknowledged fact that most
elected officials pay plenty of lip service to the need for afford-
able housing then do little or nothing to make it happen.
Given the outcries, small wonder most pols spend most of
their time ducking the issue instead of sticking their necks out
and trying something.
Marathon mortgage broker Josh Mothner, a member of the
Task Force, has expressed his dismay at previous City Council
meetings. At Friday's workshop, hearing the chorus of boo-
birds, he said: "We need to get past the idea that this has to be
fair to everybody,"
So what was the proposal that triggered such vitriol?
In exchange for a $5,000 annual rent subsidy, landlords would
agree to deed restrict their property and lock in rents at or below
current levels. If 50 landlords signed up for the program, it
would cost the city $250,000 in subsidies to stabilize 50 rental
units.
By contrast, the Task Force members pointed out, the cost to
build just one unit of affordable housing is $130,000 to $300,000
- and that doesn't include the cost of the land.
What's really underlying much of this debate is the huge
divide between those who boost owning and those who see the
wrenching need for affordable rental housing.
Virtually all of the public efforts to jump start affordable hous-
ing so far aim at home ownership, with the belief that
owning is the bedrock of community. That may well be in areas
of the country where real estateprices are not driven sky high by
investors and seasonal residents and transient rentals.
But we're already past the tipping point.
A check of the property appraiser's tax roll shows homeown-
ership by year-round residents who qualify for homestead pro-
tection is well below 50 percent and declining every year.
The shortage of affordable housing for our workforce is too
great to continue this pointless wrangling over rental versus
ownership models. We desperately need both.
Energy being expended to criticize proposals like those pre-
sented by the Marathon task force would be better directed at
helping find solutions and those must include help for renters,
not just home buyers.

Diversity can go beyond the usual way we think of it


EDITOR:
Recently a group of my friends and I were hav-
ing a discussion about diversity and what it means to
us. I was surprised when a member of our group
mentioned the diversity that is celebrated the most is
rot true diversity.
Feeling self-righteous about the values and defi-
nitions of diversity, I was shocked at the notion that
he could feel that we could possibly be excluding
anyone from the rainbow of our one human family.
So I asked him what he meant.
He said that we, the media and corporate
America consider a group of people diverse only if
there are blacks, Latino, Indians, Asian, women and
homosexuals included. However, the fact is a group
can be considered diverse even if it contains only
white men.
In that group alone one may find people who are
from places such as Germany, Ireland, Russia, the
Middle East, South America, southern Africa, the
Asian countries or the Pacific islands. Also in that
group, there are physical differences that might give
them natural red, brown, blonde or black hair, to be
of different economic status from the very poor to
the very wealthy, and then there are the differences


in religious views.
He went on to state that folks will often see an
area like Little Haiti in Miami and comment on the
multi-culturalism and diversity within the communi-
ty, when actually the very opposite could be true if
everyone is from the same area, of the same religion,
of the same economic status and share similar per-
spectives. It could be more accurately described as
being mono-cultural than multi-cultural or diverse.
If a group is to truly consider itself a Noah's ark
collection of the diversity present in all people, said
group must, by definition, include people who fight
against diversity as well as those who support it.
My friend's revealing and thought-provoking
statements have made our group re-evaluate true
diversity on a personal level, what it means and who
does it truly represent. I see now that it is much
broader with fewer definitions than many current
groups would have us believe.
I can only hope those certain groups will realize
the value of all persons individually, not just the few
that previously and conveniently fell into a category
of a diverse group.

Sewering Marathon is a no-brainer; just do it


EDITOR:
When reasonable people lose their ability to
reason and forget the meaning of responsibility,
you've got to ask, What's up with that?
And let me be very clear before I go one sen-
tence further: I no more want to fork out, unneces-
sarily, any more money than the next guy for pro-
viding wastewater treatment. However, given the
choice of doing it or not, let me go on record -
do it. Enough of this.
How many of you red-blooded capitalists
screaming property rights are forgetting that
responsibilities go with them? Yes, I know the
state promised us money, and how many times has
that happened? Heck, the Legislature didn't keep
its promise after all the hype during this session to
reduce property taxes significantly.
Most counties and parishes, of which I'm
familiar, put in central collection systems, charge
you X dollars per front foot of your property and
voila, it's done; here's your bill.
So now, for well over 15 years, the arguments
over sewering Monroe County have gone on.
Heck, even bartenders have a vocabulary and
understanding of wastewater jargon that would
impress the average civil engineer.
While politicians are running for office, you
hear them fervently state we live in this unique
beautiful place worthy of protecting because it
represents our economy blah, blah, blah; now look
at them, changing positions faster than Mit
Romney joined the National Rifle Association.
If stated correctly by Marathon sewer officials,
the cost of an equivalent dwelling unit is some-
where between $10,000 and $12,000. Adding the
cost of my laterals comes to a total of about
$20,000; that represents about 3 percent of the
value of my property.
The more successful folks from the standpoint
of higher-end property values, like those with $1
million-plus homes, which are not uncommon in


the Keys, would pay less than 1 percent of the
value of their home.
The state has mandated and I don't like
mandates either that we put in sewers and treat
sewage to advanced standards. Some have asked,
What can the state do to us if we don't? My first
guess would be a lot.
For starters, they would make us do the follow-
ing: put in a decentralized system at.about $15,000
to $20,000 in your yard and then you would have
to hire someone like Synagro to monitor the quali-
ty of the effluent for about $100 per month.
So for me, put in a centralized collection sys-
tem and be done with it. What should be consid-
ered, for those special cases of folks who are truly

in need of assistance, is offering a temporary no-
interest loan to be paid back upon sale of the, prop-
erty using the 1-cent infrastructure sales tax
that was created for needs just like this.

Pie in the sky, pie on my face, pie all over the place


You .know how when you move,
some things are just not going to go
as planned?
And when you have a once-in-a-
lifetime opportunity to do something
super cool like being in a national-
ly broadcast pie-eating contest -
something's going to royally mess it
up?
The odds of those colliding are
colossal. But not in Larry's world.
So I moved first time in 13
years. Not far, just two apartments
down. But still, it was a hassle, not
discounting help from two neighbors
with the couch, bed and wall unit -
plus two others who spent Saturday
putting together my computer desk. I
offered money, they settled for beer (I
bought the wrong beer).
The one thing I clearly arranged
was my utilities. They would all be
shut off in my old place on a
Friday morning and be on in
my new place when I got
home that night.
I'm not going to name
names, but one of the utili-
ties didn't hold up its end of
the bargain. Then again, I i
filled out my post-office
change-of-address form two t
weeks ago and inexplica- .
bly found it at my office
Friday, not processed
because I didn't turn it in. Larr
AT&T (formerly BellSou- Keync
th) got my change of
address correct, but a prob-
lem in the line didn't let the phone
work. And truth be told no matter
how embarrassing, I still have dial-up
Internet access at home.
No problem, I thought. E-mail can
wait.
Dang, how wrong could I be?
The Fourth of July, the day before
CBS' "The Early Show" was doing
part of its broadcast to 3 million peo-
ple live from Mallory Square in Key
West, I got the following e-mail from
my fishing rival Andy Newman, PR
chief for the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council and one of the
architects of that national Keys expo-
sure. It said:
"Would you like to compete in a
Key lime pie eating contest against
Dave Price (and other locals) tomor-
row morning?"
Price is the "wacky" weatherman
who's on a multi-city tour for "The
Early Show," giving away vacations.


Key West was the first stop.
I did make the trip from Marathon
to Key West for "The Early Show,"
leaving the new place around 5:15
a.m. to help a contingent from the
Domestic Abuse Shelter wave a ban-
ner for a few seconds of national
exposure.
But I didn't get in the pie-eating
contest because I have dial-up and
couldn't get the e-mail.
I didn't see Andy's message until I
got back to Marathon after "The
Early Show," when I saw it at work.
I wore a Domestic Abuse Shelter
shirt during the broadcast. If I had
been entered in the pie-eating contest,
I would have gone into wardrobe
mid-broadcast and switched to a
Keynoter shirt (apologies to my shel-
ter friends).
So instead of your editor getting
that priceless air time
_ representing your news-
paper, it was John
.L Bollinger of Key West, a
62-year-old sailor, and
SGuy Snell, 11, from Key
Largo. Guy was among
dozens of Big Pine Key
Seacamp kids who
showed up for the broad-
cast.
The eating clock was
S set at 30 seconds most
y Kahn pie eaten in that time is
ter Editor the winner.
According to my friend
Carol, Andy's top person
in the Keys, "each adult contestant
ate parts of two pies. Each knocked
his first pie onto the ground before it
was anywhere near gone and started
on a second. I know the kid ate part of
one pie and then knocked it on the
ground, but I'm not sure if he started
a second pie."
No matter, kids always trump
adults. Guy won "because his pie is
gone," according to Kermit
Carpenter, owner of the Key West
Key Lime Shoppe and "the guru of
Key lime pies," Carol says. He was
the judge of the contest and supplied
the pies.
So there went my time before 3 mil-
lion folks who would have seen me in
all my glory representing the paper.
Now the only thing I can say is that
to every person telling me to lose the
dial-up and get a different Internet
connection, I am about to throw a pie
in your face.

CBS weatherman Dave Price (left) is enthusiastic in the pie-eating contest, but

entered, this likely would have been the scene.


Nuclear power not nearly as bad as fossil fuel


EDITOR:
While some people are worried
about expanding the nuclear generating
capacity of Turkey Point, these people
fail to recognize that there is a small
chance (maybe one in 10,000 per year)
of a significant radioactive release.
However, building a coal plant on
the site, or anywhere in South Florida,
is a dead certainty to screw up things.
Having fly ash settle in the
Everglades, breathing the toxic gases,
having coal trains running through the


area killing people, or having barges
carrying coal get loose and impact the
reef no way.
Where would they get the natural
gas to run a gas plant for the next 30 to
40 years? What about the carbon-diox-
ide output of a fossil plant?
Or maybe we could cover South
Florida with solar collectors or wind-
mills? Or maybe we could just turn off
the AC and the lights.

Code needs to be more strictly enforced


EDITOR:
For years, a contractor on 105th Street
in Marathon has moved about leaving a
trail of trash, junk cars, old building
materials and large commercial machines
sitting around. Dozens of code violations
have been filed against him and many are
still pending.
The city code inspector has done little
to bring him into compliance even though
he is not a property owner himself. In the
past 15 years, he has built a whopping
three houses. Rather than take action on
the homeowners in the area, complaints
to the city's Code Compliance
Department resulted in a deal.
The city has agreed to allow the con-
tractor to apply for a permit for a desig-
nated area for temporary storage of con-
struction equipment, tools, construction
trailers, etc. This builder is getting free
commercial storage for more than a
dozen machines and trailers, two 40-con-
tainers, a large office trailer and tons of
junk.'This commercial storage area is


now on a residential street and all of this
is being done with no feedback from the
owners.
The Marathon city officials once
again are failing homeowners in favor of
wealthy developers.

me in this tournament. It's always good

Union head
says the move
violates contract
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The city of Layton and the
local American Postal Workers
Union are not quite ready to give
up on their fight to keep staff at
the Long Key post office intact.
The U.S. Postal Service plans
to reassign one of the office's two
clerks, Harolyn Keeney or Diane
Saunders, as early as this month.
Local APWU President Jack
Baldwin says U.S. Rep. Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen was misled by
Postal Service representatives at
a June 28 meeting in Washington,
D.C.
Ros-Lehtinen had arranged
the meeting after receiving multi-
ple letters and e-mails from con-
cerned citizens in that office's
service area.


Baldwin wrote in a letter to
Ros-Lehtinen that the Postal
Service plan for "Postmaster
Tama Hamburg to be trained for
customer service at the counter is
a direct violation of the collective
bargaining agreement between
the USPS and the APWU."
Hamburg was to be trained for
customer service to offset the loss
of one of the two clerks.
"The contract explicitly for-
bids reducing staff and backfill-
ing with management employ-
ees," Baldwin wrote. "The man-
agement representatives ... are
well aware of the collective bar-
gaining agreement and also.know
that their explanation to you was
a direct violation of this agree-
ment."
Baldwin also indicated that
not only has Hamburg not been
trained, but has no plans to be
trained and-has "written two let-
ters to her superiors to protest
these cuts and explain in no


uncertain terms the cuts in serv-
ice that would be generated by
them."
Ros-Lehtinen said in a state-
ment she had conveyed the city's
concerns with potentially dimin-
ished service, but was not "hope-
ful that the repositioned employ-
ee will be allowed to stay in Long
Key."
Layton City Administrator
Skip Haring said the Postal
Service is underestimating the
impact removing a clerk will
have on the city.
"They're used to dealing with
big post offices with hundreds of
employees," Haring said. "But
when you take half the staff and
remove them it becomes critical."
The proposed reassignment
came about following the results
of a Postal Service review of the
office. Baldwin said the reviews
are based solely on computer data
measuring the amount of incom-
ing and outgoing mail, as well as
revenue brought in and operating
costs.

Wisteria annexation request withdrawn


Verge still
might seek
referendum
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynpter.com


Attorneys for the Bernstein
family, which owns Wisteria
Island and its 150 acres of bay
bottom, on Monday withdrew
their request for Key West to
annex the island.
Attorney Ginny Stones wrote
that Christmas Key Management
Corp., which represents the
Bernstein family, the owner of
the island, no longer wants to be
part of the city proper.
The Bernsteins were planning
to work with Ocean Properties of
Delray Beach to develop some-
thing similar to Wisteria Island's
high-end neighbor, Sunset Key.
"It takes the heat of off a lot


of a lot of people," said City
Commissioner Harry Bethel,
who's been an advocate for the
annexation.
The commission passed the
first reading of an ordinance for
the annexation May 1.
Commissioners Bill Verge and
Mark Rossi dissented.
"They probably realized they
were going up against an unex-
pected wall," Scott Fraser, from
the Society for Preservation of
Mariner's Rights, said of the
withdrawal. That group, as well
as environmental activists Last
Stand, has expressed opposition
to the annexation.
Fraser is one of many live-
aboards who live in the area sur-
rounding the island. The reaction
from many boaters docked in the
bay bottom prompted a petition
with 1,000 signatures and
research that revealed the island


is on the so-called Federal
Emergency -Management
Agency red list.
It's the product of a 2005 fed-
eral injunction that bars new
flood insurance policies in the
Keys for any property that could
be home to endangered species
habitat.
Wisteria Island, better known
locally as Christmas Tree-Island;
has protected wildlife habitat.
The city Planning
Department recommended the
commission approve the annexa-
tion, given the property tax rev-
enue it could gain if it were
developed similar to Sunset Key.
The Monroe County Property
Appraisers Office indicates
Sunset Key's annual tax revenue
is $308,412.68, a total from 48
single-family homes and 21
vacant lots. It claims numerous
multi-million dollar homes.
According to city documents,
there is a potential for 168 units


to be built on the 21.5 acres of
Wisteria-Island, located 2,220
feet off Duval Street. One hun-
dred and fifty acres of bay bot-
tom were also included in the
ordinance.
Verge said he thinks annexa-
tion of the island, which is unin-
corporated Monroe County,
came with too many complexi-
ties, which could have been a
deterrent for the developers.
The city, Verge said, would
have had to revise the property's
zoning classification, which is
currently offshore island conser-
vation status. Utilities would
also have had to be installed.
SVerge said he might continue
to push for non-binding referen-
dum on the issue at Tuesday's
City Commission meeting. The
referendum would simply poll
city residents to gauge the
majority stance. That would give
commissioners and the develop-
ers insight into what the resi-


dents want for any potential
ordinances that could appear in
the future.
"There are too many unan-
swered questions," he s~id.
Ocean Properties could not be
reached by press time Tuesday.
"If someone owns an island
like that, something is going to
be done to that island at some
time," Bethel said. "If it's under
your control, you can come to
agreements. I think it's in the
city's best interest."
"Maybe this will come up
again soon," Fraser said. "But I
hope they do a much better job
rather than trying to rush it
through in a two-week period. I
think they could take a lesson
from the Spottswoods. When
they have a major development
project, they meet with all of the
concerned parties and try to
address all of their concerns."
Ocean Properties did not,
he said.

Ethics complaint
among fallout
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

In the wake of the demise of
the Wisteria Island annexation
proposed to the city of Key West
by island owner the Bernstein
family, FEB Corp. and the Walsh
family, which controls Ocean
Properties, old friendships are
rocky, an ethics complaint has
been filed against city commis-
sioners and some residents and
officials wonder what's next.
"I think that it's interesting
that we went from it's a done deal
to this," said resident Naja Girard
d'Albissin, who spoke at City
Commission meetings on the
issue and gathered about 1,000
signatures against the annexation.
d'Albissin and others say the
city should now work with the
Bemsteins to create a clean, natu-
ral park for visitors on the island,
or something not as high density
as what was proposed, she said.
City Commissioner Bill Verge
agrees.
Liveaboard boater Scott
Fraser, who's been opposed to the
annexation since day one, has had
a falling out with Commissioner
Clayton Lopez. Fraser was
Lopez's campaign manager for

the 2005 election.
Part of the strain in their
friendship has to do with the pro-
posed annexation.
Meanwhile, resident Erwin
Herwig has filed a complaint to
the Florida Commission on
Ethics regarding a May 10 dinner
attended by several commission-
ers, Ocean Properties Vice
President Tom McMurrian and a
member of the Walsh family.
Ocean Properties was the
would-be developer of Wisteria-
Island.
Also reportedly attending
were Lopez, commissioners
Danny Kolhage and Harry Bethel
and Police Chief Bill Mauldin.
Lopez accused Fraser of
telling the press about the dinner
but Fraser says it wasn't him.


"I don't think he did,"
Commissioner Bill Verge. "I cer-
tainly wasn't involved in it."
The commissioners and
Mauldin say absolutely no dis-
cussion of city business took
place at the dinner and that nei-
ther of the involved parties paid
for the meal. Lopez said he was-
n't aware McMurrian would
attend.
Bethel said that after 16 years
in city government, he's hard-
ened to what he calls ridiculous
accusations, saying, "I got a shell
like a loggerhead turtle."
"The dinner gave the whole
thing a really bad name. We're
wondering, what are they think-
ing," d'Albissin said. "The fact
that they brought that kind of
thing to the table, it makes it sour.
We are wary of our officials
because of it."


Smokehouse owner

not defeated by fire


Mongelli hopes
to reopen eatery
by the weekend
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Over the weekend, a gang of
disoriented souls stood looking
lost in the parking lot of the
Geiger Key Smokehouse restau-
rant and bar.
But owner Bobby Mongelli
says not to worry, he fully intends
to reopen the popular watering
hole by this coming weekend.
"It's not as bad as I thought,"
said Mongelli, who was out of
town when- a ground-floor fire
broke out early Friday morning.
"The fire department did an
incredible job."
Fire officials say faulty wiring
is to blame for the super-hot fire
that destroyed a downstairs wall
and caused extensive smoke
damage to a second-floor apart-
ment.
"We're part of the neighbor-
hood," Mongelli said. "Now peo-
ple don't know what to do. But
,they're offering to do anything
the can to help."
Mongelli said the inside-out-
side nature of the waterfront bar
makes it easier to work around


the damage.
"We'll be cooking outside
under the tiki," he said. And the
bar, which wraps around the
building along the boat dock,
should be functioning just fine.
Two renters upstairs were
placed in temporary housing with
the help of the American Red

Cross, according to county "fire
officials.
"Luckily it's a solid cement
building," Mongelli said. "We
need to rewire as soon as I get the
go-ahead."
Mongelli said it's particularly
crucial to be up and running since
the lobster mini-season one of
the busiest two-day events on
local waters is right around the
comer July 25 and 26.

Gautier dies


at age 72


Former lawmaker
was a leader
in legal circles
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Jefferson Davis Gautier Jr.,
72, a former state representa-
tive and Monroe County state
attorney, died of cancer July 6
at his North Florida home in
Bell.
A fifth-generation Miami
native, Gautier earned numer-
ous honors during his lifetime.
Locally, his efforts included
work to establish the Key
Largo Volunteer Fire
Department.
"He had a remarkable and
distinguished career, but I
think he was most proud of the
fact that he was elected as
state representative at age 31.
He won in a landslide," said
his son, Jeff Gautier III, of
Tavernier. "He served eight
good years and was well-
respected by his peers, which
included people like Bob
Graham and Buddy MacKay.
He was a life-long Democrat."
Mr. Gautier was an ardent
sailor, fisherman, diver and
marine conservationist.
"He will be remembered
for his incredible zest for life,
compassionate and generous
nature, and gentle and loving
spirit," said his daughter,
Katherine Gautier Breedlove.
Mr. Gautier served as an
officer in U.S. Navy intelli-
gence, and was active in the
Navy Reserves. He was an
Eagle Scout and a 32nd-
degree Mason active in the
Masonic Lodges of Coral
Gables and Key West.
His early business career
included earning a Florida
real-estate broker's license at
age 19 then the youngest
ever granted. He sold Key
Largo land.
"One of his earlier business
ventures was a movie theater
he set up in a tent with folding
chairs on the bay near mile
marker 99," Breedlove said.
"The first movie shown was
the classic 'Key Largo.'"


Mr. Gautier chaired judici-
ary and criminal-justice com-
mittees in the state House. He
moved to Key West after leav-
ing the Legislature in 1974.
As a defense attorney, he
served as president of the
Florida Criminal Lawyers
organization, and won a
notable decision in a local
murder case by using the
spousal-abuse defense.
Mr. Gautier earned an asso-
ciate's degree from the
University of Florida, and
received his bachelor's and
law degree from the
University of Miami, where
was president of the Legal
Society.
He attended the U.S. Navy
Officer Candidate School and
was posted to Naval
Intelligence in Pensacola.
Mr. Gautier married Ann
Hazelwood in 1955, and they
had three children.
He was married 23 years to
Elizabeth "Bette" Gautier,
with whom he had one child.
Survivors also include son
Jefferson D. Gautier III of
Tavernier; daughters
Katherine Breedlove (and son-
in-law Jim) of Franklin, N.C.;
Carolyn Chapman (and son-
in-law Nick), also of Franklin;
and Ariel Gautier of
Gainesville. He had three
stepchildren, Nick Sprague of
Bishop, Calif.; and Jenna
Delattibodier and Sam
Sprague, both of Gainesville.
He had five grandchildren
and four stepgrandchildren.
A celebration of life will be
held at 7 p.m. July 21 at the
Caribbean Club in Key Largo.
Memorial donations can be
made to Haven Hospice at 311
NE 9th St., Chiefland, FL
32626; or to Reef Relief at
www.reefrelief.org.

Interim chief
of 'cane center
replaces Proenza
By MARTIN MERZER
mmerzer@MiamiHerald.com

A 20-year veteran of the,
National Hurricane Center and
already its deputy director, Ed
Rappaport last year declined an
opportunity to apply for the top
job the most prominent post
in government meteorology.
He ended up with it anyway
Monday, appointed as the cen-
ter's interim director in the cli-
max of an unprecedented,
unseemly staff mutiny that cost
Bill Proenza his job after a
tenure so abbreviated it didn't
include a single hurricane.
Superiors in Washington said
Proenza's turbulent six-month
reign threatened the hurricane
center's ability "to protect the
American people."
Current and former co-work-
ers in South Florida said
Rappaport's selection should
calm public concerns about the
capabilities and staff stability
of the hurricane center.
"Ed Rappaport is somebody
who is very qualified, and he
will do everything in his power
S to unite everybody," said Lixion
Avila, a senior hurricane fore-
S caster.
M Said Max Mayfield, who
retired as director in January: "I
think the majority of the staff


worked with Ed long enough to
know how committed he is, how
hardworking he is and how sin-
cere he is."
Rappaport, 49, has served
largely in an administrative role
since becoming deputy director
in 2000 after years as a highly
regarded hurricane forecaster.
In recent years, he routinely
consulted with front-line fore-
casters and became familiar to
South Floridians as the center's
evening voice during hurricane
emergencies.
Rappaport confronts several
simultaneous challenges:
He must find a way to
bridge deep divisions and repair
fractured morale at the center.
He must restore public
faith in thehurricane center and
its forecasts.
And most importantly, he
must focus the staff's attention
on the tropics during a hurricane
season that has been charitably
mild so far but is expected to
heat up soon.
In an e-mail to the center's
staff, NOAA Administrator
Conrad C. Lautenbacher Jr. said.
Proenza "will be on leave until
further notice, which means that
he will not be undertaking any
official duties or performing any
function in [the] chain of com-
mand."
His departure followed'
months of controversy, stirred
largely by his attacks on superi-
ors at NOAA.

Hotels are going green


Four Keys spots
working to earn,
formal certification
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

A Key West resort is all set to
become the first certified green
lodging facility in the Keys, and
others are being actively recruit-
ed to join it in making up an elite
group of environmentally com-
mitted and widely marketed
- accommodations.
The. Banyan Resort, 323
Whitehead, has met the require-
ments to earn its green lodging
certification, according to Laura
Comer, south district green lodg-
ing coordinator for the Florida


Department of Environmental
Protection's Certified Green
Lodging Program.
Paperwork to be completed at
the state level is all that stands
between the Banyan and its offi-
cial designation ceremony, which
Comer expects will take place at
the resort within a month.
Comer said that once certi-
fied, the Banyan can expect to
save money on waste disposal,
energy and water costs. The
resort will also receive a market-
ing boost at both the state and
local levels, according to Comer
and Alison Higgins, president of
Green Living and Energy
Education.
Higgins said GLEE, a Keys-
wide nonprofit organization that


promotes environmental con-
sciousness and green living, has
chosen the dates for its 2008
Green Living Expo. The event
will take place May 9-11, and
Higgins said her group will pub-
licize green accommodations and
encourage event attendees and
speakers to patronize them.
"We want green hotels to rec-
ommend. GLEE hopes to not
only choose its official Expo
lodging, but also recommend a
variety of green hotels for visi-
tors to choose from," Higgins
said.
Higgins said that GLEE will
endorse resorts and hotels even if
they are still in the process of
being "green certified" at the
time of the Expo.

Drugs, home chemicals may pose risks


Washington takes
lead on watching
what's in sewers
McClatchy Tribune

It's a connection that few
people make, but the medicines
and personal care products that
are part of daily life also can be
part of the pollution problem.
Collectively called pharma-
ceuticals and personal care prod-


ucts PPCPs for short those
items contain thousands of
chemicals which, when excreted
from our bodies or washed off
our hair and skin go down the
drain and into the sewer or septic
system.
And if the sewer system
includes a wastewater treatment
plant that dumps treated waste-
water into public waterways,
chances are those chemicals to
some degree are polluting the


waterways.
"There's a big risk, but we
haven't fully begun to under-
stand that risk," said Melanie
Redding, a Washington state
Department of Ecology hydro-
geologist.
This much is known:
Of the 10,500 chemicals
used in personal care products
such as shampoo, sunscreen,
toothpaste and lipstick, only 11
percent are tested for their toxic

"As long as they've started
the process and are actively pur-
suing certification, we'll promote
their achievements to our Expo
visitors. But we believe they can
totally complete the process by
then. It's doable."
Higgins said GLEE is collab-
orating with chambers of com-
merce in Marathon and the
Upper Keys to get more lodging
facilities certified. The Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Daniel Samess said he is pleased

the leap. It's scary. But in busi-
ness, you change or you die."
To help facilitate that change,
the chamber is partnering with
the -DEP and GLEE to bring

August. The date, time, and loca-
tion will be announced soon, but

as another green lodging work-
shop Comer is hosting in Key
Largo on Aug. 8.
It was just such a workshop,
held earlier this year in Key West
and sponsored by the Lodging
Association of Key West and the
Florida Keys, that caught the
Banyan Resort management's
attention and compelled them to
apply for green lodging certifica-
tion.
Julie Brown, assistant general
manager at the Banyan, said her
resort had already taken steps.
toward a cleaner, greener proper-
ty before linking with DEP. But
she credits the state agency with


helping the Banyan reach an
even more ambitious set of envi-
ronmental goals.
"Everybody knows the basics,
and we were already recycling
and using solar panels. We were
xeriscaping with native plants,
and we installed low flow toilets,
faucets, and showerheads,"
Brown said. "But [DEP] pro-
vides so much education and
guidance for us to do even more.
I can't stress enough the value of
the education and information
they give. And once we are certi-
fied, we get vendor discounts and
marketing help, too."

duct site visits and facilitate

visit and agreed that the staff
there should be proud of what
they have accomplished.
Lindley said she believes
green lodging is vital to the Key's
sustainability financially and
environmentally.
"The world is watching what

effects by the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration.
One-third of all personal
care products contain at least
one known cancer-causing
agent.
Many of the chemicals act
like hormones and have the abil-
ity to alter the reproductive sys-
tems of fish and cause birth
defects.
"We're finding them every-
where in groundwater, waste-
water, in our bodies and the
breast milk of mothers,"
Redding said. "This is all fairly
depressing."
She said conventional waste-
water treatment plants break
down only about 10 percent to
12 percent of the medicinal and
personal care chemicals that end
up in the sewer. The treatment
rate can jump to more than 90
percent when solids at the treat-
ment plant are retained in the

to 15 days, she said.

Summer tunes hit the high notes

Keys stations F: -: ..
know what works
and what doesn't I-t '
By KYLE TEAL al i
kteal@keynoter.com Zoo.%X


With summer temperatures
rising, stereo basses are bump-
ing and all-too- familiar tunes
are sounding from iPods.
From the constant car-stereo
bass Duval Street drivers who
are kind enough to share with
the rest of the island, to the
tunes that play over and over
again on popular radio stations,
there is one word that can
describe the summer soundtrack
for many people: mainstream.
But summer hits main-
stream or not are unique by
nature and there are certain
"ingredients" to summer jams
that make them so popular,
local DJs agree.
WEOW (Wow 92.7 FM) DJ
Bill Bravo said he plays Sean
Kingston's "Beautiful Girl"
about eight times a day.
"It isn't often when someone
explodes like that with their
first hit," Bravo said of the
Miami artist. "It has mass
appeal for all ages and all
demographics."
Bravo said he predicts the
song will reach No. 1 on the
Billboard list before long. The
track is currently within the top
40.
Bravo describes it as -a mix
of reggae which always
works in the Keys and pop,
with the sample of the classic
1961 song by Ben E. King
"Stand by Me" so even the
"mature crowd appreciates it."
As of Monday, Billboard's
Top 10 albums nationwide
were:
1. "Umbrella" by Rihanna,
featuring Jay-Z.
2. "Party like a Rockstar" by
Shop Boyz.
3. "Hey there Delilah" by
Plain White T's.
4. "Big Girls Don't Cry" by
Fergie.
5. "Buy U a Drank (Shawty
Snappin')" by T-Pain featuring
Yung Joc.
6. "The Way are I" by
Timbaland featuring Keri
Hilson.

California ska band The Hippos is typical of smaller bands denied airtime in the Keys in favor
of big, mainstream albums on the Billboard Top Ten.


7. "Makes me Wonder" by
Maroon 5.
8. "Girlfriend" by Avril
Lavigne.
9. "Summer Love" by Justin
Timberlake.
10. "Rehab". by Amy
Winehouse.

stream up-
tempo song,"
I Bravo said.
"It needs to
BRAVO -have a little
bit more of a beat, as opposed to
the wintertime, when ballads
are more popular."
According to Bravo, last
year's big summer hit was
"Promiscuous" by pop artist
Nelly Furtado. Even from the
track's title, one can understand
why vacationers and even locals
would want to listen to it during
summertime. For some folks,
summer brings a new desire to
let loose and dance to a song
that may lower inhibitions and

turn up the laidback "fun"
atmosphere" that accompanies
the Keys summer heat.
With friends on the beach or
traveling down U.S. 1 in packed
cars, there is a certain recipe to
the summer hit catchy hooks
and upbeat melodies, Bravo
said. Rock and pop numbers
tend to see more play time than
hip-hop in the summertime, he
added.
For instance, Nickelback is a
mainstream pop/rock group that
gets an inordinate amount of
playing time, though criticized
by many as a poor group.
Justin .Timberlake's "What
Goes Around" gets a healthy
amount of air time as well.
"Party Like a Rock Star" by
the Shop Boyz and "Umbrella"
by Rihanna follow closely
behind "Beautiful Girl" in their
popularity, Bravo said.
Along with Bravo, Mike
Donovan of Rick's bar on
Duval has been a DJ for more
than 20 years. Many know him

Marathon powers to two wins


But the team
is plagued by
foul weather
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon 11- and 12-
year-old team went 2-1 over a
three-game stretch this weekend
in the District 8 Little League
Tournament.


Delays caused by rain and
lightning have plagued the
squad since the tournament
began June 29, forcing the team
to play three straight games
over the weekend in Miami.
Marathon mercy-ruled
Miami Springs, 14-2, before
being mercy-ruled itself the
next day by North Miami, 14-4.
The team finished the weekend
strong with a 12-3 victory over


Doral. Their record 'thus far
stands at 3-2.
With a win against 1-3 Nerh-
Miami Beach Friday, head
coach Spook Roussin said the
team would most likely place in
the top four. It then would have
a chance to advance to a region-
al tournament.
Roussin says the parents
have taken the constant delays
much worse than the players.

"It's been tough on the par-
ents," he said. "The kids have
been good. We only had one let-
down on Saturday ... our focus
wasn't there."
In Friday's game against
Miami Springs, Marathon
scored eight runs in the first two
innings to take a commanding
lead.
"They just played a real solid
game," Roussin said. "They
hadn't played for a few days
and they were ready."
Clint Rodamer went 4-for-4
with four RBI, while Joey
Gonzalez and Sean Roussin
each went 2-for-3 with two
RBI.
Yoniel Esquirol-Lopez start-
ed and pitched four strong
innings, surrendering two runs
on only five hits.
Then came Saturday, as
Roussin said. Marathon came
out sluggish and never recov-
7 ered, losing 14-4 to North
Miami in five innings.
S "We walked 11 guys, out of


which eight scored," Roussin
said, adding the team also made
six errors and left 13 runners
stranded on base in the game.
"We just had a game where
everybody had their bad game."
Marathon got right back on
track Sunday with a 12-3 win
over Doral. But the team did
have to travel to three different
fields over four-plus hours to
find a suitable field to play on,
as rain and lightning delays
continued to be an issue.
Roussin said Doral reminded
him of Marathon's team last
year loaded with younger,
inexperienced players.
Marathon overwhelmed Doral
with 18 hits, spectacular
defense and a solid effort on the
mound from Rodamer.
Rodamer pitched a solid 5
and 1/3 innings, with five
strikeouts and only two walks.
"We scored five runs in the
first and set the tempo after a
long, long delay," Roussin said.
Esquirol-Lopez and Taylor
Davis each went 3-for-4 with a
home run and Richard Keating
went 2-for-3 with three RBI.

years of college eligibility
remaining.
She picked the state's newest
public university because of the
"awesome people and facili-
ties," and because it's not t6o far
from her family in the Upper
Keys. "We came down in 1997
because my dad's in the Coast
Guard, and we stayed put,"
O'Connor said.
At Coral Shores, O'Connor
played volleyball in the spring,
soccer in the winter and ran
track in the spring.
"I was always going, and
learned something from every
coach I had at Coral Shores,"
she said. "In my junior year, I
decided that if I wanted to play
at the college level, I needed to


get serious about volleyball."
In her senior season at Coral
Shores, she teamed with Jessica
Harrison to present a fearsome
presence at the net.
She went on to Miami-Dade,
where the Lady Sharks went 32-
0 in her freshman season to win
the national JC title. They
returned to the title game in
2005's 33-3 season, finishing
second.
O'Connor is majoring in sec-
ondary education. "I want to
teach middle-school history and
coach on the side," she smiled.
Breaking into the Eagle line-
up will not be easy. Gulf Coast
returns regulars from the team
that went 29-3 and reached the
Division 2 regional playoffs last
fall.
That's one reason O'Connor
became a regular-at Froggy's
Fitness in Tavernier this sum-
mer. "I've got to do it to build
my upper-body strength," she
said. "I'm also trying to gain
some more weight."
The Eagles' college volley-
ball season opens Aug. 24 at the
Florida State Invitational
Tournament in Tallahassee. The
regular season, which runs
through early November,
includes Florida International
and the University of South
Florida. Gulf Coast will join the
10 teams in the Atlantic Sun
Conference.

that's inches, not pounds. But with

The
Dolphin Flashover held out of the
Dolphin Marina on Little Torch
Key the past d weekend wa the site
of hopefully good things to come
for offshore anglers who like to
target those pesky game fish.
The two-day tournament could
not have had more ideal condi-
tions for running long distances.
Both days, there were light and
variable winds with very little
chance of thunderstorms to ruin
the party. The distance run by
some of the top boats was upward
of 40 miles offshore.
"It seems like the big ones
have been migrating way offshore
and skirting past us here in the
Keys," said Capt. Bruce Coles of
Marathon.
Winning angler Tom
Wammack, fishingtaboard Capt.
Alfred Latey's boat Intrepid out of
Grassy Key, found one of those
dolphin that plain did not want to
be caught.
"We fought that fish for a half
hour and thought I had him good
and tired as he came up to the side
of the boat," Wammack said.
"One of the young guns on board
put a gaff hook into him and the
-fish managed to pull him along
the rub rail to the bow of the boat
before ripping the gaff hook out of
him. The fight lasted an additional
15 minutes after that."
He added, "When he came
back up to the boat, we weren't
taking any chances as we sank

two gaff hooks into him. As we
pulled him into the boat, the fish
still got his revenge by sending the
handle of the gaff through the T-
top of the boat."
That fish caught Saturday
weighed 46.75 pounds and held
true until the scales closed
Sunday. Funny thing about that
fish was that Wammack was just
being a nice guy and helping to
clear lines when the bull appeared.
"I was reeling in a line to help
an angler who had a large cow
hooked up because I'm old and
gray and that's what I do. That's
when the bull came up and nailed
the bait."
That fish netted Wammack
$5,000 to help pay for the dam-
aged T-top.
Most of the big fish were
caught on Day 1. The very close
second-place fish hit the scale
right behind Wammack's winner.
Just missing a tie by a pound
and a half was Billy O'Herron
from Key Colony Beach, fishing
aboard the Tadv Soul. O'Herron's


fish weighed 45.25 pounds.
Third-place finisher was Rich
Querci from North Andover,
Mass., fishing aboard The Natural
captained by Reese Lewis. His
fish was 35 pounds.
Rounding out the awards was
top female angler Anita Becker
from Cudjoe Key, fishing aboard
the Archelle. She registered .a
30.5-pound dolphin.
Top junior angler was Bryan
Limsang with a 27.25-pounder.
Limsang hails from Miami and
was aboard the B & F Marine.
The tournament-winning boat
Intrepid also registered the largest
blackfin tuna, caught by Alan
Latey of Deerfield Beach, a 5.5-
pound fish. In the wahoo division,
a huge 33.5-pounder weighed in
by Ed Whitaker of Summerland
Key took top honors.
The Dolphin Flashover had 36
boats competing with 168 anglers.

Fish not kind to small boats


But there is
also action
closer inshore
The nice weather and calm
seas have produced some fine
catches lately for most anglers.
The deep waters offshore,
more than 700 feet, has pro-
duced some very large dolphin,
tunas, wahoo and more than a
couple of David-vs.- Goliath
type of stories. Or if you prefer,
"The Old Man and the Sea."
I have had reports from
anglers on private boats lately
that have not been, shall we say,
set up for long battles with large
fish.
More than one story has been
told by anglers using light spin-
ning tackle being trolled and
hooking dolphin more than 50
pounds. One man who was in
the store the other day reported
how he had to have his wife
keep their 19-foot craft almost
on a plane to keep up with a
wahoo that hit one of their small
conventional rigs that only had
less than 200 yards of line on it.
She said it had a lot less
when the fish made his run. But
they got the fish after 40 min-
utes of being down to the last
few wraps on the reel. It was
estimated to weigh around 45
pounds.
The anglers that have been


Dave Navarro


venturing
well off-
shore have
also been
coming in
contact -
many not
intention-
ally -
with bill-
fish of
rather
large pro-
portions.
When
trolling


with 20-pound test rigs, you are
not anticipating hooking marlin
more than 300 pounds at
least not with reels with rather
small amounts of line on them.


The sharper

the drop-off

you can

find, the

better

results you

will have.


For the most part, the reports I
heard stated the fish took care
of the limited line in a very lim-
ited amount of time (imagine
that).
Others who have hooked up
monsters recently have had a
shot at a good fight, even on
light tackle with a more sub-
stantial amount of line. There
were several anglers who
reported they have caught
(brought to the boat and
released) blue marlin in the past
several days. The fish are there
and it only takes the time to go
to where they live, and a little
bit of luck.
Most of the releases were
estimated at less than 250
pounds, which is unusual for
fishermen. By the time they hit
the dock, most big fish released
have doubled if not tripled in
size and swelled even more the
next day or two. (remember,
fishermen are overqualified to
be politicians).
All of this is not to say that
there hasn't been any fish :,in
closer to shore. The areas.inside.


of 700 feet have also been pro-
ducing quite a few fish, with
some larger ones mixed. The
main numbers of fish have been
on the smaller side, however.
The exception to this has
been the wahoo that have been
caught in the nearshore area,
from 150 to 350 feet of water.
There was also a run of sailfish
one day last week along the
180- to 200-foot line off the
Grassy Key to Long Key area.
Quite a few were hooked,
caught or just spotted free
jumping in that area. Even
though the big numbers of them
are gone, there are still'quite a
few around.
The reef has also been
active, even with the clear
waters. The best action by far
has been in the evenings. It is
also much more comfortable, as
the daytime fishing with little or
no wind gives you the feeling of
being in your daughter's Easy
Bake Oven.
The action has varied from
deep to rather shallow, depend-
ing on where you went along
the reef line; The sharper the
drop-off you can find, the better
results you will have.
Critters are abundant, so use
sturdy-enough tackle to retrieve
the fish in a timely manner or
you may have them pre-filleted.
Live shrimp are a very good
bait but are surely living up to
their name this time of year.
The use of frozen baits has been
the choice of most. Silversides
have been the best to get good
action.
There are still numerous tar-
pon and permit, around so don't
fret if you don't want to go far.
Bridge channels have remained
steady with a wide variety.
Most are dealing with the
heat by mixing some swimming
in their fishing plans. This is a
good way to enjoy all of the
options the Keys have to offer.
I always have this love/hate
relationship with jumping into
the water with a mask and com-
ing face to face with that 4-
pound yellowtail I have been
trying to trick into biting all
day. I sometimes swear that fish
has been to Jersey because it
sure looked as if it was giving
me the fin.
