Dive safety heightened


Mini-season brings
new focus at

Keynoter Staff

Last year's five Keys dive
deaths during the two-day lob-
ster mini-season and now
Sunday's dive death off Key
Largo, the eighth of 2007 and
second in a week are enough


for local agencies to really start
pushing the new Florida Keys
Safe Diving Initiative.
"Obviously we're trying to
get ahead and educate and
reduce the number of dive acci-
dents in the Keys," U.S. Coast
Guard Lt. Michael Bell said fol-
lowing a July 8 dive death of a
23-year-old Key West man.
From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Monday just before the mini-


season July 25 and 26 Diving
Initiative organizers are holding
what they call a Lobster Diving
Rodeo and Safety Expo at

College's Stock Island campus.
It's a one-stop education shop

keling.

turnout.

Staffing cuts
among chief
areas targeted
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Many Monroe County staffers
are likely holding their breath
until Thursday, when the pro-
posed 2007-08 county budget is
released especially the 69
folks who are still on probation.
That's where County Admin-
istrator Tom Willi suggests start-
ing cutbacks aimed at paring
close to $4 million off ad valorem
tax expenditures.
The County Commission
meets in a special budget session
Thursday at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West
at 9 a.m.
Property taxes are expected to
raise $82.6 million in the 2006-07
fiscal year.
.County Budget Director Sal
Zappulla says the 2007-08 budg-
et will collect $78.9 million in
property taxes.
The state Legislature has man-
dated all local governments adopt
a budget for 2007-08 that is any-


where from 3 percent to 5 percent
lower than the current year to
save homeowners $15.6 billion
statewide.
Cutting 20 percent of the coun-
ty's workforce isn't the only way
the county's dealing with the state
mandate to craft a budget 5 per-
cent lower than this year's. Each
county department is expected to
find places to slim down.
New- Growth Management
Director Andrew Trivette said his
department has cut 5 percent
from its expenditures. Trivette
also proposes "substantial" fee
increases.
Technical Services will pare
half a million dollars out of its
current budget; according to
Senior Administrator Lisa
Druckemiller.
Dent Pierce, director of Public
Works, says his division will lose
10 or 11 jobs.
Human Resources Director
Theresa Aguiar said she's cut
substantially, saving 14.5 percent
in overall human costs, 23 per-
cent in group health insurance
and another 20 percent in work-
ers' compensation.
"These cuts to benefits will be


delving into employees' and
retirees' pockets," she told the.
County Commission at a work-
shop last week, adding that
salaries and benefits are vital to
recruit and retain quality staffers.
"The salaries in Monroe
County are lagging behind other
counties," Willi said Tuesday.
But with the budget crunch, the
last thing anyone can hope for is
a cost-of-living increase.
"A cost of living at 3.5 percent
would be around $870,000 county-
wide," Willi said. "Think how many
$60,000 salary packages would be
encompassed in that. Every penny .
we can reduce in expenses is staff
members we can save."
County Commissioner George
Neugent says a budgeting error
that could have left a deficit in the
general fund balance if it hadn't
been corrected earlier this year is
really tightening the noose.
"The mandate from the state
to roll back would hardly be the
problem we're dealing with if Mr.
Willi would not have allowed a
$2 million budgeting mistake to
happen," he said in an e-mail.
Willi said that's not the case,
adding that the general fund bal-
ance is hovering around $17 mil-
lion now.


Plant clinics going away?


STORY / From 1

involved in 4-H, a program sup-
ported solely by the Extension
Service.
"Some of our kids have taken
on some serious Red Cross proj-
ects like hurricane mitigation and
disaster preparation," Sutter said:
They've learned about native
plants, public speaking and serv-
ice to the community."
Sutter, who heads three 4-H
clubs in the Upper Keys, said the
county's partnership with the
University of Florida through the
extension program is vital for
local youth.
"It gives those kids access to
the incredible resources of the
university," she said. "All of the
access to the experts, the library,
not to mention the matching dol-
lars, will be cut off."
The University of Florida
matches the expense of the pro-
gram, but it also provides servic-
es that go beyond money,
Gregory said. Experts in a variety


of fields ranging from fisheries
management to invasive-insect
control come to the Keys to share
their knowledge.
"For example, in August they
are sending down an expert in
Africanized honey bees because
they are beginning to spread into
Monroe County," he said.
Many local gardeners know
the wealth of information provid-
ed by the Extension Service.
Horticultural agent Kim Gabel
is available to identify plant pests
or recommend native plants that
can thrive in Keys soil.
Numerous plant clinics are con-
ducted in the Upper, Middle and
Lower Keys throughout the year.
Gregory said his role as the
local Sea Grant agent is crucial in
linking the fishing industry to
county decision makers.
The volunteer organization
Green Living and Energy
Education GLEE relies
heavily on the Extension Service,
volunteer Christina Lindley-said.
GLEE also stages an annual
free two-day expo offering prac-


tical solutions on important top-
ics such as water and energy con-
servation, renewable energy,
green boating and green lodging.
It draws dozens of businesses,
agencies and community groups
as vendors. This year's event was
in Marathon and included 34
workshops and more. than 50
vendors.
There's also the free Tropical
Fruit Fiesta, which focuses on
homegrown fruit and includes
workshops by national experts.
This year it was in April at
Bayview Park in Key West.
Gregory said county pays only
between 30 percent and 40 per-
cent of his staff's salary. The uni-
versity pays the rest.
"It's mind boggling," he said
of the possible cut. "We're such a
valuable partnership. These are
unique programs."
The 2007-08 budget will be
presented to the County
Commission Thursday in a spe-
cial meeting at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
It begins at 9 a.m.

KW Resort again


wants sewer deal


But bid process
for Lower Keys
well under way
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Bids for constructing a sewer
plant to service the Lower Keys
will not be opened until Aug. 8,
but a private Stock Island com-
pany is again trying to convince
the Monroe County
Commission the effluent should
be piped down to its plant.
KW Resort Utilities is asking
again to be considered for the
Big Coppitt project, and a dis-
cussion of the proposal is set for
1:30 during today's County
Commission meeting at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West. The day-long meet-
ing begins at 9 a.m.
Construction of a new plant
and necessary pipelines to run
service to neighborhoods is pro-
jected to cost about $8. million.
KW Resort Utilities spokesman
Bill Barry said the county could
save taxpayers $5.5 million.
"In the simplest terms,"
Barry wrote in a statement
released Friday, "the county can
contract with [the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority] to build a
new $8.2 million wastewater
plant on Rockland Key or can
make a decision to bypass
Rockland and connect to the
current Stock Island facility..."
The Aqueduct Authority is
the state-mandated agency
charged with designing, build-
ing and operating sewers in
most of Monroe's unincorporat-
ed areas.
The bid request that ends
Aug. 8 proposes building a new
sewer plant on Rockland Key to
service Rockland, Big Coppitt
and Geiger keys.
Over the past year, KW
Resort Utilities officials have
been trying to convince the
county and FKAA to pipe the
effluent to its existing plant.
"This is completely out of the
bid process," Aqueduct
Executive Director Jim
Reynolds said Tuesday. "It's a
complicated issue. We have a
comprehensive system going in.
This is a long-term commitment


and some up-front- savings
shouldn't drive the decision."
Six contractors have quali-
fied to bid on the project,
Reynolds said.
Barry said KW Resort
Utilities would cost less on a
monthly. basis than long-term
service from the Aqueduct
Authority, but Reynolds said
there's no guarantee.
"I expect that once they have
their plant operating at [a state-
mandated level of advance'
wastewater treatment], they will
likely need to apply to the [state]
Public [Service] Commission to
increase their rates," he said.
Controversy over KW Resort
Utilities began in 2004 when the
county partnered with the pri-
vately owned company to sewer
the south end of Stock Island, a
project that spawned two audits
and a grand jury investigation.
Many Lower Keys residents
say they do not want to be KW
Resort Utilities customers. A
group calling itself the M-10
Coalition has lobbied the county
against using the private utility.

Two similar crashes
occur at same place

Two nearly identical one-
vehicle crashes a mile and a day
apart ended up with the autos off
theroad, one flipped on the high-
way's shoulder, the other one in
the water.
The Florida Highway Patrol
says that at 7:50 a.m. Tuesday,
Carlos Barrera, 42, of Opa Locka
was traveling south at mile mark-
er 113 when traffic in front of
him came to a stop. To avoid hit-
ting the auto in front of him, he
veered onto the shoulder, and
then his 2002 Dodge continued
into the water. He wasn't hurt.
A day earlier at noon at mile
marker 114, also southbound, the
same thing happened to Luis
Reyes, 60, of Miami, who was
driving a concrete mixer. His truck
tipped on the grassy shoulder.
He sustained injuries but the
extent wasn't known Tuesday.


Dog may have been poisoned


ATTACK / From I

jumped on the back of the girl,
biting her. A witness tried to
restrain the animal, but the dog
shook free and attacked the boy
in the same manner. By this
time, a neighbor, a nurse, was
attending to the girl's injuries.
The elder Knowles heard
the boy's screams.and was able
to stop the dog from biting him
by hitting it on the head with a
hockey stick at which point
the dog tried to attack him.
Knowles said he hit Gus
again and the dog ran down the
street. Police later captured it.
Chuck Best from the Florida
Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals took possession, and
it's now quarantined.
Dan Kolhage said Tuesday
that Gus, who was a Christmas
present, apparently cleared a
-6-foot fence in his backyard
before Friday's attack.
The girl suffered "severe
puncture marks on her right
side of her face and next to her
ear, and she had multiple punc-
ture marks under her chin," a


police report says. "Her right
hand and right arm had multi-
ple bit marks. She had abra-
sions on her legs from being
pulled to the ground."
The boy, whom Kolhage
said is his son's best friend,
"had several puncture- marks
on his left shoulder and right
arm, along with abrasions to
his leg from being pulled to the
ground," the report says.
Both were treated at and
released from Lower Keys
Medical Center.
Bull mastiffs are a mix
between bulldogs and English
mastiffs. They weigh around
120 to 130 pounds and have a
brownish red coat, with dark
eyes and a black muzzle.
The attacks are particularly
strange in the fact that the
breed is known to be calm and
loyal. When protecting their
owners, they typically knock
the person they perceive as a
threat to the ground and pin
them there with their large
size.
Kolhage said Gus had not
shown signs of such violent
aggression. He said the SPCA
speculates the animal could


have been poisoned, altering
his mental state and making
him hyper-aggressive. The
poison, Kolhage said, could
have come from a scorpion
sting.
Kolhage said the dog is
scheduled to be put to sleep 10
days after the bites, which
would be Monday.
"There is no way you can
risk it," Best said. "It's a big
dog and you can't risk a human
being's life for an animal."
"Our first concern was the
children," Kolhage said. "And
then it's the loss of a pet who
was a puppy."

Bus stop gets a facelift


More benches
set for services'
connecting site
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The bus stop on Sombrero
Beach Road in Marathon looks
much more like an actual bus
stop now than it used to.
The stop in between Publix
and the Brass Monkey Lounge
has undergone a facelift in recent
weeks with the installation of
a 12-foot shaded enclosure
and bench seating two to three
people.
The city also paved over the
once-rocky area and removed
several giant stones that lined
the area between the stop and
shopping-center parking lot.
In their place are a chain-link
fence, trashcans, a bike rack,
parking stops, drainage and the
bus stop itself.
City Community Services
Director Susie Thomas said in
the coming weeks, additional
benches will be provided and
Gonzalez Lawn Service &
Landscaping will landscape the
area.
The Marathon bus stop serves
as the connection point between
tihe Lower Keys Shuttle and the
American Coach line contracted
by Miami-Dade Transit.
The Lower Keys Shuttle
makes 12 runs daily between

Plane loses gear,
does belly-landing

A private plane landed at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport
Sunday morning with no opera-
tive landing gear. No one was
hurt.
According to the Sheriff's
Office and Highway Patrol,
deputies were notified at 11:15
a.m. that the single-engine Ryan
Navion B was trying to land but
the gear wouldn't deploy.
Pilot Robert Silber of
Marathon, with his wife
Georgette as a passenger, man-
aged to put the plane down on the
runway at 12:15 p.m. doing a so-
called belly-landing.
The runway, which .was


closed while the plane landed,
reopened at 1:20 p.m.

Pennekamp high
on visitor list

John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park in Key Largo was the
third most-visited state park in
Florida in 2006-07, the state
Department of Environmental
Protection said Tuesday.
Pennekamp saw more than
860,000 visitors, just behind
Honeymoon Island State Park in
Dunedin (975,000) and St.-
Andrews State Park in Panama
City (890,000).
Overall, more than 19.5 mil-
lion people visited Florida's 160
state parks.


between Oct. 1, 2006 and March
31, 2007 on the Lower Keys
Shuttle. Allowing for seasonal
fluctuation, the bus serves an
average of 240 riders daily.
Wittenberg was unaware of
the numbers for the Miami-Dade
line, which serves more work-
force riders.
"My understanding is they
are doing very well on that'end,"
she said. "Their numbers have
increased significantly."
Marathon, Key West and
Monroe County have an inter-
local agreement to pay 25 per-
cent of the buses' total operating
cost at a maximum of $50,000
each. The Federal Transit
Administration and Florida
Department of Transportation
contribute the remaining funds.
"It hasn't come anywhere
near the $50,000," Wittenberg
said of the agreement, noting
each paid roughly $38,000 last
year. "That's what we expect
again, maybe less. Since rider-
ship [has] increased, fare-box
revenues increase."
An alternate plan had the new
stop being constructed' on the
east side of Publix on 53rd
Street, but there were issues with
the bus crossing a lane of traffic
to board riders.

Death was


likely drowning


Pennsylvania
woman was 8th
2007 dive death
Keynoter Staff

A dive death on Molasses
Reef offshore of Key Largo
Sunday appears to have been
caused by saltwater drowning,
according to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Preliminary autopsy results
from Medical Examiner
Michael Hunter show that's the
cause of death for
Pennsylvania Lori Gallagher,
36, although the autopsy is not
complete pending the return of
toxicology tests.
According to reports by
Deputy Patricia Garcia,
Gallagher was aboard a dive
vessel owned by Ocean Divers
Sunday afternoon with her
boss, John Seasock, and her
two children, ages 10 and 13.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
Seasock said he, Gallagher and
the kids entered the water to
dive together. He said she told


him she had too much weight
on so he helped her drop some
of the weight.
Suddenly, he said, she
began to panic. She began
fighting him in the water, at
one point climbing on top of
.him and pushing him under the
water.
He told deputies he tried to
inflate his buoyancy compen-
sator more to help keep her
above the water and he and the
children all reportedly began
calling for help.
By the time- they and
Gallagher were pulled aboard
the dive vessel, the victim was
unresponsive and not breath-
ing. Witnesses say they heard
the calls for help. A doctor was
aboard and performed car-
diopulmonary resuscitation as
the vessel returned to shore.
Paramedics met the boat at
the end of Marina Avenue at
2:45 p.m., but she was pro-
nounced dead.
Gallagher's death was the
eighth dive death in the Keys
this year.

Keys, Cuba have unity

despite 'Strait Divide'

Today, Keynoter readers will find the final part of a three-
part package about Cuba and the contrasts with life in these
islands and life just across the Florida Straits.
We dubbed the series "Strait Divide" because the photos
and words portray both the parallels and differences that truly
do still divide us.
Some old time residents in the Keys still remember the easy
commerce that linked Key West and Havana, with commer-
cial ferries, air service and private vessel crossings.
It was not uncommon for Key West big shots to hop over to
Havana for nightclubbing, gambling, and other pursuits. And
fishing captains plied their trade on both sides of the straits
back before Fidel Castro.
But for all that has changed, Deputy Editor Jessica
Machetta and Marathon photographer Larry Benvenuti found
much that has not, including the warm hospitality, the people-
to-people exchange of shared hopes and an abiding love of
the sea that connects all island peoples.
For those who have lived in the Keys for any length of time,
we can recognize parallels in resolverr," a much-used mantra
for finding solutions with what's at hand.
We recommend the series to all our readers. It's available at
www.keynoter.com under Special Sections, "Strait Divide."

Welcome return for beloved eatery

For those of you in the Upper Keys who missed the news in
Saturday's Keynoter, Manny & Isa's is making a comeback.
Former Islamorada Councilman Mike Forster, who knows
his way around a kitchen or two, is the spark plug resuscitat-
ing this village institution..
For many old-timers, Manny & Isa's was a mlut-stop for
ropa vieja, the whole snapper and Key lime pies 11 home-
made and with that Cuban touch that brought raves from
patrons.
Manny Ortiz and his wife, Isa, closed their doors in January
2005, tired after so many decades of running the restaurant
that bore their signature.
Now, after Forster initially approached the couple to buy
their Key lime pie recipe, the talks grew into a much broader
vision that brings the Ortiz couple aboard as consultants to
Forster. And they're bringing all their recipes.
We love the quote from Forster on what to expect: "People
can't be coming in here looking for no trans fat. A lot of it's
cooked with lard.... I'm not changing it for the times."
These days, that's music to the ears for many who remem-
ber the good ol' days.
The new Manny & Isa's debuts in the former. Squid Row

Global warming is a real threat to the Keys


EDITOR:
To arouse the sleeping giant that is our body
of citizens is a slow and difficult task. Apathy is
a great enemy. That is why I was shocked at the
column by Keynoter Publisher Wayne Markham
finding fault with Gov. Charlie Crist's efforts to
address global warming.
The governor has set some specific goals.
Like President Kennedy before him, he knows
setting a goal, and holding to it, opens the door
to the technology and resources needed to
accomplish it. President Kennedy proved this
when he set a goal in 1961 to put a man on the
moon in 10 years. In 1969, astronauts walked on
the moon.
The threat of global warming is gargantuan


and imminent. Water rolling over the Keys in a
few years is unimaginable, so the idea is dis-
counted. The ostrich with its head in the sand is
alert compared to the attitude of many of our
population. It's the grasshopper and the ant all
over again. Only this time, not only the
grasshopper but also the ant will perish.
Every naysayer delays the solution to this cri-
sis. Every voice for support in this crucial cru-
sade should be heard and encouraged. Listen -
it's the sound of the death knell for our planet
that we hear, and it is ringing for all of us;
Find out what you can do and do it. Above
all, don't undermine those who are trying.

FWC supports governor on climate change


EDITOR:
It was with great pride and satisfaction that I
attended Gov. Charlie Crist's recent climate-
change summit in Miami.
As stewards of Florida's natural resources, we
at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission not only applaud the governor's
efforts; we pledge to join him in his fight to pro-
tect our state's natural wonders.
The governor has brought hundreds of leaders
to the table to begin addressing the complex issue
of climate change. This is no small feat. Climate
change may affect our peninsular state, with its
magnificent coral reefs, regal Florida panthers


and gentle manatees, more than any other state.
The future of our state's fish and wildlife
depends on a wise leadership and a motivated
public. This is a time for all proud Floridians to
come together, work hard and set an example for
the rest of the world.
I believe the impact of this summit will rever-
berate throughout the state, the country and the
world. We must resolve that we will rally behind
leaders such as Gov. Crist to preserve a rich natu-
ral heritage for future generations of Floridians.
Let's do it.

County's housing attorney is overpaid


EDITOR:
Monroe County is so broke it's eliminating the
Marine Resources Department (while work on the
plan to save working waterfront is critically
behind) and many other county functions County
Administrator Tom Willi has yet to announce
(wait until you hear what all is under the ax).
Yet on today's Monroe County Commission
agenda is an item to renew attorney Jerry
Coleman's contract and to boost his fee to $500
per hour.
Five hundred dollars per hour, if it were a full-
time job, converts to a salary of $1.04 million per
year.
For what? For coming up with bogus ideas for
affordable housing that always seem to revolve

Delta ruins vacation
EDITOR:
Well, what a silly. I made reservations on
Delta going to Alaska this September. I made
them a few months ago when I learned that
Delta was here for a year minimum. I did think
I received a fair deal and was looking forward
to flying out of Marathon.
Now I am flying five count them, five -
flights to get back from Anchorage.
Whatever Delta got to come to Marathon, get
it back.

Pro-development crowd steamrolls the county


EDITOR:
With the firing of George Garrett and the
disbanding of the Monroe County Marine
Resources Division, it certainly appears
selective targeting is being implemented at
all county levels, especially toward those
with environmental concerns or those peo-
ple with a genuine concern about the greater
good of the entire county.
Aside from being unfair while hurting
good people, these actions amount to noth-
ing other than calculated political genocide
by the pro-development crowd, always with
a new power play and always taking another
end run against anybody, or any laws, that
stands before the process of moving dirt.
What's even sadder is watching our two
best county commissioners, George Neugent
and Sylvia Murphy, locked out of the
process while their own government has just
gutted Marine Resources in a county com-
pletely surrounded by water.
Make no mistake, the development
crowd and their selected representatives are
engaging in a full-blown assault on our des-
ignation as ai Area of Critical State
Concern. For the past few years, voters
haven't just been speaking loud and clear at
the polls they're screaming. One would
think an 84 percent vote to reinforce the
height restriction in Islamorada would have
sent a message, but apparently that's not the
message developers want to hear.
What's more, this is a slap in the face to


Islamorada. In fiscal year 2006-07, village
residents contributed nearly $10 million to
county coffers. If you're a taxpayer in the
village, 29.87 percent of your property tax
bill went to the county, not to mention coun-
ty vessel registration taxes paid by village
residents.
And as the Sport Fishing Capital of the
World, wouldn't it make sense the village be
consulted on such a move? But we should-
n't be surprised. After all, county Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro has yet to attend any
Village Council meeting since his election.
And several attempts by this council mem-
ber to personally connect with the mayor
were rebuffed. Who knows, maybe if he
went through a real campaign, he might
remember he has 7,000 constituents in
Islamorada.
Not only has George Garrett and the
Marine Resources Division made incredible
contributions to our community'with buoys,
maintenance, equipment and education, just
to name just a few, they have been an inte-
gral part of the village's current efforts to
preserve our working waterfront and water
access.
So here we go again. The underlying war
waged by the pro-development crowd has
taken another unpleasant turn and it may be
time for us to raise our threat level from yel-
low to orange.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill
Islamorada


Maybe county administrator should go


EDITOR:
Three years ago, my husband and I pur-
chased our current residence on Boot Key
Harbor. One of the reasons we purchased
the property was the obvious and dramatic
improvement in the condition of the harbor
from when we first came to Marathon nine
years-ago.
Perhaps several hundred derelict boats
had been removed. That removal continues
now.
The more I looked at the harbor, the
more interested I became in what had been
done and what would and could be done in
the future. Look at what has been accom-
plished in the harbor over the past three
years.
We have a state-of-the-art pump-out
boat with a second one on the way. The
boats were paid for with grant money
obtained through Monroe County Marine'
Resources Department Director George
Garrett's efforts.
We now have the largest mooring field
on the East Coast. The money came from a
grant obtained by George, who also
obtained grants for the removal of the dam-
aged and sunken boats from the 2005 hurri-
cane season, not to mention the involve-
ment of Marine Resources in our canal and
shoreline.cleanup, public boat-ramp main-
tenance and waterway markers. These
accomplishments are Marathon's and obvi-
ously do not include the rest of the county.


I read with. complete disbelief
Saturday's Keynoter article on the disman-
tling of Marine Resources by County
Administrator Tom Willi. Saturday's
Keynoter references the firings as being
"shortsighted" in the opinion of others in
involved marine and water related organi-
zations.
"Shortsighted" is a vast understatement.
The decision is foolish and absurd. The
water, with its resulting lifestyle, is why
most of us are here. We came by boat and
stayed. The tourists who provide our eco-
nomic base come because of the water.
Why on earth would be want to potentially
jeopardize this tourism industry?
Perhaps the wrong person has been
removed from a county job.
George Garrett and Marine Resources
have accomplished a great deal for the
county. I am not sure that the same can be
said about Tom Willi, unless the county's
current financial debacle can be considered
an asset.
I beg Mr. Willi justify abolishment of
the Marine Resources Division and the fir-
ing of George Garrett to the citizens of
Monroe County. Our waters demand a
Marine Resources Department and a person
of George.Garrett's capabilities and com-
mitment.

Marine-office cut a slap


in the face to everyone


After working closely with the
Monroe County Marine Resources
Department for almost seven years,
I perhaps can see why changes are
being suggested, but the elimination
of a critical Marine Resources
Department that does not just serve
the county but is responsible for
serving all county municipalities and
working with many agencies, and
has control over all of our vessel-
registration tax money (not County
Administrator Tom Willi's money)
makes no sense.
Willi and the new Growth
Management director have no clue
they are not only cutting
county services but are
unilaterally cutting serv-
ices to Key West,
Islamorada, Marathon,
Key Colony and Layton,
and it is our money that
pays for our services.
I doubt if the county is
saving a dime doing this.
Two people's salaries are -
a rounding error com-
pared to how much good
this department does (and
could do more) for the Jim
county, and much free
money comes to the is chai
county for use by this Islamc
department for the good Near
of all of Monroe County. Water
This department never Sup
got enough credit for the Comr
impossible job it did with
derelict vessels after the
storms two years ago.- and th~at
service will be needed again. While
they rightfully did use the cleanup
as an excuse to shelve a few proj-
ects, they did get the vessels cleaned
up while working with the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
and state Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission in a mas-
sive effort. It truly was a big, com-
plex job and department Director
George Garrett personally helped
coordinate the county getting tons of
free money for this effort.
How in the world can Willi sug-
gest a county that is surrounded by
water with more than 200 miles of
shoreline does not need a three-per-
son marine department, especially
when our county has the worst
boater safety record in the state? It is
a joke this department is only three
people and to suggest it does not
have enough work to do is absurd.
I know budget cuts in the county
and the village are going to be
painful. but why would anyone cut


r


something that is free, anyway,
already so small it is crazy, and that
offers a service that is critical to
everyone in the county?
If Willi wants to cut a Tavemier
planner, that only impacts the unin-
corporated county. But the Marine
Resources Department is all of the
county.
Just about all state grants regard-
ing marine money must come from
the county. The village cannot even
apply, so millions in potential grants
will go by the wayside. We must
rely on the county for this. Our vil-
lage grant writer cannot even apply
for most grants and we
could use ramps, mark-
ers, vessel cleanup funds,
buoys, etc. Past grants
and tax funds have bene-
fited us.
Most or all of this
department's expendi-
tures are paid for by a
vessel registration tax, the
S Florida Boating
Improvement Fund and
other grants.
Much of this money
Trice will come to the county
with or without the
man of department, and we will
'raoda's get no value for our fair
Shore share of the funds. What
Citizens' is Willi going to do with
port the money with no
niftee. department to manage it?
We are talking about
hundreds of thousands of
dollars here.
A couple of years ago, we doubled
the county vessel registration tax
under the guise to help transport
vessel waste out of the county. The
money was never used for that, but
is in the county bank account. While
Islamorada has seen little from this
tax increase, fact is, our fair share
should either be given to us or pro-
vided via this department ideally
a more responsive and proactive
larger department in the future.
I don't think Willi has the authori-
ty to eliminate the department. He
can fire people, change personnel,
demand higher levels of perform-
ance, etc., but this department is not
just a county department, it is all of
Monroe County.
I would not tolerate this for a sec-
ond as an elected official and would
rally all the other municipalities
around the issue.
There is no saving here. This will
cost the county potentially millions
in grants and state suDnort.

'Mi cases tu casa'

Casa particulares offer glimpse into Cuban lives


BY JESSICA MACHETTA

Hotel and resort rooms in
Cuba are comparatively
inexpensive by U.S. stan-
dards, around $75 on average for a
room that accommodates two to four
people, but for a true Cuban experi-
ence, a casa particular
(private home) is the
way to go.
Cuban residents
who pay the appro-


private surtax to the


government are
allowed to rent .
rooms or even suites
to tourists, often for around $35 a


night.
Near Marina Hemingway, a
favorite spot for Americans, casa par-
ticulares offer open water views, easy
access to Habana Viejo (Old Havana)
and sidewalk strolls that are safe and
tourist-friendly.
Manuel, who goes by Pipito (little
papa), rents a single ground-level


room with an open-air dining room
flanked by canvas shades, as well as
a second-level apartment complete
with a kitchenette, bathroom, double
bed, television and deck (which is the
rooftop) furnished with plastic chaise
lounges, a marble-top table with an
ashtray, and a glimpse of blue water
between the surrounding homes and
trees.


Inside, thick, black


furniture surrounds a
coffee table, and a
small refrigerator is
S handy for storing
'. j snacks. A small gas
B stove and sinks are
paralleled by solid
rock walls and a bar.
Pipito, whose daughter Odalys
helps him run the place, has a safe
where visitors can lock up their cash
and documents, and an English
translation book, circa 1950s, that he
likes to refer to when communicating
with those who "no hablo Espafiol."

This is a view of Pipito's rental suite as seen from the outside deck. Directly inside is a
kitchenette and lounge area.The bedroom and bathroom are in the back. Most homes and
businesses in Cuba have bars on the windows and doors, some of which are quite ornate.


"Strait Divide" is a package of stories that seeks to show readers the
contrasts and parallels between the Florida Keys and their neighboring
islands that make up the country of Cuba.
The Keynoter went to Cuba for two weeks at the end of April for a tour
through the country with a guide who offered glimpses of Cuban life off
the beaten path, from Havana to the Bay of Pigs to Cienfuegos to Cayo
Largo and more.
This is the third segment of stories and photos about a variety of issues
both locales deal with: fisheries, water quality and tourism; as well as
slices of life from several cities and rural areas in Cuba.
The package of stories, which began July 14, is posted online at
www.keynoter.com. Additional photos are in the "Photo Gallery" section
of the Web site. For more, the public is invited to a photo presentation
and lecture at Crane Point Hammock in Marathon, mile marker 50, July
19 at 6:30 and 8 p.m.

He sets up two or three

tugs on the line, the can
rattles against the rock,
alerting Pedro to grab it.

Fisheries tough to fully measure

But some fear demand means waters are fished out


BY JESSICA MACHETTA
jmachetta@keynoter.com


Pedro is a commercial fisherman
in Cuba. For him, that means
yo-yo fishing near the Bay of
Pigs, standing on the craggy shore
that was once part of the coral reef.
He catches mostly snapper, he
said, and uses squid
and land crabs for


bait.
On a day he spoke
to the Keynoter, he
had not yet caught .
anything "the bite
was bad," he said, I U
but he did report
catching as many as 20 good-sized
fish in recent days.
One snorkeler not too far from
Pedro's spot said he,.too, had seen
large mutton snapper, yellowtails
and more in the area.
Many claim Cuban waters are
fished out, but it's hard to get a grasp
on the commercial fisheries business,
rules enforcement and whether com-
mercial fishermen abide by regula-
tions.
Bennett Orr, president of the


t


F


Organized Fishermen of Florida's
Marathon chapter, went to Cuba with
Larry Benvenuti, a Marathon photog-
rapher, in 2004.
"We had appointments with the
Ministry of Fisheries, twice, at this
gated compound in Havana, but we
kept getting stood up by the respon-
sible people who were accountable
for setting the regu-
lations for Cuban
fisheries," he said.
"We just went
There to hopefully get
an idea of what they
were up to the
amount of lobster, a
lot of biological info
and just to see the techniques of how
they harvest lobster, which went
from ultra primitive to what they
would consider high-tech harvesting
methods. But we were never success-
ful even getting past the front gate."
Orr, who said he got the impres- ;
sion that recreational lobstering was
not allowed, said he did find a man
in Central Cuba on the side of the
road selling lobster out of the back of
his pickup truck.
"I told Alex [his tour guide], 'Let's


get some lobster for tonight' and he
said, 'No, if we get pulled over and
they find them, we'll be in trouble.'"
Orr explained that in the immedi-
ate-coastal waters, lobsters are
allegedly fished out, and that's why
commercial fishermen have to go
way offshore, more than 10 miles, to
successfully harvest.
"Yet they dive," he said, "and
some of their techniques certainly are
different than ours. They hand-catch
substantial amounts of lobster, and
they do one of two things they
bring them to a mother boat [and]
how they credit each individual fish-
ermen is a mystery; in other areas,
they have what we consider unnatu-
ral habitat or casitas [and] they dive
around them, put nets around them,
a funnel-shaped arrangement and
tickle them out. They don't use the
trap technique that we use here."
Orr said whether Cuba's lobster
harvesting affects the Keys commer-
cial business is unclear, since it's
believed lobster cannot migrate in
waters over a certain depth.
At a fishhouse Orr visited, he did
not see any traps, and "the boats they
use, you and I would hesitate to


leave the docks on them," he said.
"This was a small fishing fleet I final-
ly got to see.
"They're very secretive, especially
when speaking to Americanas about
anything. At this little fishing village,
it was not very accessible. You had to
walk through the mangroves, across
some boards. Alex wouldn't let me
go in there until he went in first. As
soon as I walked in, about four or
five of the fishermen left; the two or
three that were there were limited
with information I was asking about
- very evasive about everything. I

Like all business in Cuba, the
state-controlled fishery management
of Cuba has ownership of fishing
tools, equipment and facilities.
Commercial fishermen receive a set
wage; the catch belongs to the state
and is distributed through the public
distribution system.

destructive net sizes are not used,

However, "In Cuba, there is a
well-organized network of fish seed
production centers which cater
almost exclusively to the stocking
requirements of reservoirs," the
organization reports.
According to Geographical
Review, the spiny-lobster fishery is
the most valuable fishery in Cuba
and flourished in the 1960s and
1970s.
It differs from U.S. fisheries with
"its combination of strong central
control and absence of standardiza-
tion and mechanization in fishing
gear."
"Cooperation rather than competi-
tion among fishing vessels is promot-
ed by exclusive fishing zones and
fleet organization," the article states.
"These measures, along with the use
of storage centers, simple vessels and
inexpensively constructed fishing
gear, have promoted spatial rationali-
ty and cost reduction in the fishery
and made it one of the most success-
ful spiny-lobster fisheries in the
world."

In addition to the American-made cars from the 1950s in Cuba, Russian and Eastern
European cars make up the majority of vehicles there. Cubans call this Polish compact
car a'polaquito' or'polqui,' which means'little Pol.'


The Russia connection

The Florida Keys were caught directly in the crosshairs of the Cuban
Missile Crisis in October 1962 when U.S. reconnaissance discovered
Soviet nuclear-missile installations on the Soviet-affiliated island.
That meant the nuclear threat was just 90 miles from Morroe County.
Then-President Kennedy ordered a U.S. Navy blockade around Cuba
and a tense 14-day standoff that had the world on the brink of nuclear
war ensued.
Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev ultimately backed down, and the
missiles were removed.
But during the two weeks of the standoff, the U.S. military ramped up
its military presence in the Florida Keys, with thousands of personnel
deployed.
Some 30 years later, dissolution of the Soviet Union brought the end of
the Cold War and, with it, pretty much an end to what had been the
Soviet Union's financial backing of Cuba.
Cuba's economy was on the verge of collapse then, and what Fidel
Castro called the "Special Period" began.
The struggling economy and loss of jobs led to shrinking rations and
shrinking waistlines. However, for the Cuban people, it is with a sense of
pride they talk about surviving nonetheless.
Russian cars still dot the roads and many Cubans who either worked
or received military training in Russia speak the language. The Russian
Embassy stands tall in Havana, resembling a huge robot or Transformer.
Russia historically has been a consistent supporter of Havana in con-
demning the United States' longstanding embargo of the island.
Analysts say it is too early to forecast the precise future of Russia-Cuba
relations beyond a multimillion-dollar tourism agreement.
What is certain is that this emerging relationship will depend on a
number of issues, including future alliances of each country, Moscow's
effectiveness in containing its own domestic corruption, the 2008 presi-
dential elections in Russia as well as Castro's successor.

The crowd files out of Revolution Square in Havana, the political heart of communist
Cuba, after May Day festivities on May 1. Salvador Valdes, secretary general of Cuba's
central workers union, gave a speech before the parade, saying'A speedy recovery and
lots of health, dear Fidel,'who was noticeably absent./Viva Fidel!' he shouted.'Viva!'the
crowd echoed.


Cuba's May Day

The international working class holiday May Day originated in pagan
Europe as a festive holy day celebrating the first spring planting.
The Catholic Church did not take kindly to these celebrations, especial-
ly during times of popular rebellion, and May Day and the Maypole were
outlawed in the 1600s.
As trade societies evolved from guilds, to friendly societies and even-
tually into unions, the craft traditions remained strong into the early 19th
Century.
The modem celebration of May Day as a working-class holiday
evolved from the struggle for the eight-hour work day in 1886.
May 1, 1886 saw national strikes in the United States and Canada for
an eight-hour day called by the Knights of Labour. In Chicago, police
attacked striking workers, killing six.
In European countries, Cuba and other nation around the world, May
Day is a national holiday. In Cuba, it's illegal to work on May Day and
celebrations in Havana are traditionally presided over by Fidel Castro.
It was rumored the ailing leader, who has all but turned over power to
his brother Raul, might show at this year's celebration, which included
thousands of residents bearing signs of allegiance as well as a military
march.
News headlines with photos of Raul that day though read, "No, no
es Fidel."
Raul greeted the crowd but did not speak.

These school children take a fieldtrip to the shore, where they pick up trash and learn about
ecological preservation and the importance of Acualina's message to 'reuse, reduce and
recycle.'

Acualina teaches awareness


GREEN/From 9

"With a pitcher she pours water,
which metaphorically represents con-
science poured into the corals in
order to protect them the coral
reefs are threatened by local human
impact and global climate changes."
"Our habit of using things and
throwing them away is desolating
and ruining our world," Corvea said.
"This has made already sound the
ecological alarms.
"We throw out the garbage, into
the streets, into the sea.... Let us take
advantage of everything and let us
recycle, and we will be saving this
way and helping to the care and sus-
tainability of the planet."
Her vision, and success, crosses a
political divide that few others have
bridged, reaching the U.S., the
Bahamas, Australia and anywhere
else she can be heard.
In addition to getting public serv-
ice announcements to air on the
Cuban government's television chan-
nels (the only stations residents are
legally allowed to receive in their
homes), Acualina and her messages
are printed on matchboxes distrib-
uted by the government on a month-
ly basis.
Is it working?
While it's not recommended one
d1'fiilRtl rp water in Cuba without


first boiling it, nearshore waters are
arguably cleaner that those of the
Keys, void perhaps of "sophisticated"
pesticides and chemicals used to treat
sewage.
Why Acualina?
"The lack of knowledge or envi-
ronmental illiteracy of our society
demands an effort of the conservation
community to teach the public and
raise awareness on how to protect
and better use our environment...,"
Corvea said. "The situation is urgent,
but there is a lot that every one of us
can do.... Acualina has the mission of
transmitting environmental education
to the population, mainly, to kids, to
change people's attitude and mobi-
lize their minds in favor of the health
of the environment so they can face
the challenges of the current world."
In 2003, Acualina began appearing
on matchboxes, phone cards, T-shirts,
calendars, posters and more, offering
gentle reminders in everyday life that
one step at a time, everyone can con-
tribute.
"Since her creation, Acualina has
been surrounded with a lot of love,
the main ingredient so that any proj-
ect works the best," Corvea said.
"And for these, she goes with her
gracious but firm walk."

Russell wants 'family atmosphere'


New principal
came through
district ranks
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County School
Board Tuesday unanimously
approved hiring Harry Russell
to be the next principal at
Marathon Middle and High
School.
For two years, Russell was
an assistant principal at Horace
O' Bryant Middle School in
Key West and at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School in
Marathon.
Monroe County School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said Russell's admin-
istrative experience and famil-
iarity with Marathon made him
a natural fit for the job.
"He's got a lot of experience
with the school system and
came up through the ranks as a
teacher," Acevedo said. "He
knows the community and the
people."
Russell was a teacher at

New Marathon Principal Harry Russell is no stranger to the
Middle Keys; he's a former assistant principal at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School in Marathon.


Horace O' Bryant for nine years
prior to becoming an adminis-
trator. He has also been a team
leader at the classroom level, a
department head, a teacher
leader for the district and a
teacher's union treasurer.


"I've been in many different
leadership positions," Russell
said, "and having been an assis-
tant principal at both Switlik
and Horace 0' Bryant, two
diverse schools, you get many
different experiences to draw


upon."
The native Conch and county
schools product said he was
immediately interested in the
job when former Principal John
Pertner resigned June 7 after
two years on the job.
"There's only 13 schools in
Monroe County and when- a
principalship comes up and you
have that desire, then you defi-
nitely throw your hat in the
ring," Russell said. "It was a
long decision process for me,
talking with my wife to make
sure it was the right thing for
me and my family."
School Board member John
Dick said he feels Russell's ties
to the community will likely
provide the kind of stability
needed in Marathon. Constant
staff turnover, he said, creates
turmoil in the system.
"He's been in the area so
he'll have familiar faces and I
think he'll stay," Dick said.
"Maybe we can get more than
two years. To me that's what we
need stability in leadership
and at the teaching level."
Board member Steven
Pribramsky is familiar with
Russell's work at Horace O'


Bryant.
"I think it's important with
our principals that they have
ties to the community to set the
precedent with the teachers,"
Pribramsky said. "Hiring from
within is important."
Russell said he is committed
to being seen on campus, which
is in the midst of a lengthy ren-
ovation, and in the community.
He recently took an engineer-
guided tour of the campus and
said the school will be state of
the art upon completion.
"I hope to build a family
atmosphere," Russell said, "one
the teachers, kids, parents and
community can be proud of."

City finances take a hit with rollback cuts


Scholl's first
budget comes in
with a deficit
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

As Key West Finance
Director Roger Wittenberg
walked the City Commission
through the proposed 2007-08
budget numbers Monday night,
dozens of Key West's finest -
police and firemen filed into
Old City Hall to express their
monetary concerns.
New City Manager Jim
Scholl worked out a proposed
$38,073,379 of revenue in the
general fund for 2007-08 -
$250,061 off balance, meaning
expenditures exceed city rev-
enue, Wittenberg said.
Total proposed expenditures
are $38,323,440.
The current budget is
$38,455,387.
The city's proposed millage:
2.004, down from the current
2.3.
The bottom line under the
plan which still needs cutting


- is the owner of a $500,000
house who pays $1,115 in city
property taxes for the current
year based on $2.3 per $1,000
of assessed property value
would see a decrease to $1,002
based on the 2.004 millage.
The state legislature
approved a bill in a special June
session mandating property tax
cuts statewide, and cities
throughout Florida are now
struggling putting together their
2007-08 budgets.
The proposed Key West mill-
age is a rollback of 3 percent.
Rollback is the tax rate that rais-
es the same amount of revenue
in the next fiscal year as the cur-
rent one.
"This year's is the lowest
we've ever had," Wittenberg
said, pointing to a bar graph
indicating a steady drop in mill-
age rates from 1992 to present.
The rollback makes for
$445,000 less in tax revenue -
making it the slimmest budget
the city has ever seen.
"Oh man," Wittenberg said
in an interview. "We are tight."
What will be cut to slash the


$12/ft/mo plus utilities
Up to 80' length
Deep water
Show er and Bathroom
No Houseboats
Call Dan: 1-305-896-7799
or
Call Sharon: 1-305-294-2288


$250,061? Wittenberg said it's
tough to say.
At least 10 vacant city posi-
tions will stay that way, while
general-services costs could
increase and certain programs
could get the ax. The city is
doing everything it can to avoid
layoffs and as of now, the budg-
et includes no salary raises.
The vacant positions frozen
are two firefighters, a city plan-
ner, clerk records coordinator,
three Public Works maintenance
workers and a recreation land-
scape inspector.
"I don't want to pull the
wool over your eyes and have
you believe that no raises in the
next three years no increases
in the set plan is going to be
satisfactory," said Andrew
Axelrad, attorney for the Police


Benevolence Association,
which represents police. "It
won't be."
SA decrease of $185,223 in
operating expenses for the
Police Department was already
proposed, as well as $320,000
in personnel savings.-
Union negotiations will soon
ensue, and that will leave the
budget debt even larger,
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
pointed out. Commissioner Bill
Verge asked for concrete figures
as to what the unions such as
the PBA, Teamsters and
International Association of
Firefighters are asking for,
which are not yet available.
"It's a situation where I've
heard all kinds of numbers
thrown around," Kolhage said.
"We're just spinning our wheels


until" we know the numbers.
"It's up to the commission
and city manager," Wittenberg
said. "Everything now depends
on services."
The next workshop to focus
on "other funds" is tentatively
scheduled for August. Another
for utility funds is set for Aug.
9, while the first ordinance
reading is scheduled for Sept.
13; the second is Sept. 20.
Verge noted said that in 10
years, the City Commission has
not received a raise.
"I wish we weren't dealt this
hand by the Legislature," Verge
said, adding that after dealing
with unions, the city will be in
trouble. "We did the right thing
last year and we'll do the right
thing this year."


Police unhappy with budget


McPherson says
everyone's paying

price for cuts
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Speaking up for the Key
West Police Department at a
budget hearing Monday night,
Lt. Jim Benkoczy said the way
the City Commission went
about determining cuts in the
2007-08 proposed budget was
"cold" and "dispassionate."
"We run towards the sound of
gunfire," Benkoczy said. "Not
away from it. When there is
chaos, we are the ones who
come running to restore order."
He added the budget is not
just numbers it affects peo-
ple's lives.
City Manager Jim Scholl has
proposed a general fund of
$3&,073,379 but that's with
$250,061 in expenditures
expected to exceed revenue, so
more cuts are coming.
Benkoczy noted that only
two complaints have been filed
by the Citizens Review Board,
the police oversight board, and
in 2005-06, 15 were filed.
But "calls for service have
gone through the roof," he
added.-
"We are simply asking for a
justifiable and fai., compensa-
tion package," he said.


At the close of the meeting,
Mayor Morgan McPherson said
"we are committed to this
process. There is nothing more
valuable in Key West than the
people who live in it and the
people who run it."
He refuted Benkoczy's
description of "dispassionate
discourse," saying the city was
dealt the budget-cutting hand by
the state and is doing everything
it can to avoid cutting essential
services.
McPherson makes $6,500 a
year as Key West's mayor.
"This is the first time the city
has had to face this millage," he
said. "Looking to the future, we
are going to have to bite a bigger
bullet."
"Right now, the Key West
Police Department is in the bot-
tom third of all starting salaries
for Dade County staff," said
Andrew Axelrad, attorney for
the Police Benevolent
Association. "The cost of living
is very difficult this year."
According to Human
Resources Director Sandy
Gilbert, the consumer price
index reveals a 3.7 percent hike
in Key West's cost of living.
Commissioners must negoti-
ate with the PBA, Teamsters and
International of Association of
Firefighters). That could
_increase the,$25,0061 of expen-
ditures past revenue.


Jerry Curtis, a Bahama
Village resident, praised the
Police Department for hard
work in his neighborhood. He
even proposed adding two offi-
cers to work with juveniles.
Commissioner Mark Rossi
questioned Police Chief Bill
Mauldin- on overtime costs
accumulated through the first
six months of this year -
$579,000.
Mauldin said his department
has five vacancies.
"The more vacancies we
have, the more overtime we
require," he said, adding that
two much-needed dispatchers
will be returning to the depart-
ment.
Rossi proposed consolidating
the dispatch office with Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, and
possibly receive funds from the
county to soften the budget
blow.
Commissioner Jose Menendez
raised concerns of expenditures
within his own entity, citing the
proposed $568,508 earmarked for
the City Commission.
"It doesn't add up, Menendez
said, "unless people are taking
trips to Las Vegas or on cruise
ships that I don't know about.
Why are we spending so much
money?"
"I think its going to be real
challenging to stick to our
promise of not affecting
employmentt of., personnel,"
Scholl said.

Utility

goes

green

Earth-friendly
transformers to
be purchased
The Utility Board of Key
West approved the purchase of
more than 100 "environmental-
ly friendly" electric transform-
ers at its regular meeting July
11.
Electric transformers tradi-
tionally utilize a mineral oil-
based coolant, which is derived
from petroleum, when trans-
forming power to the necessary
voltage level. The new trans-
formers will utilize coolants
derived from domestically
grown soybeans a renewable
energy source.
The transformers are a part
of a test program that Keys
Energy Services' staff will mon-
itor and use in its determination
when purchasing future trans-
formers.
"Assuming the test program
proves the field performance of
the new transformers," said
Lynne Tejeda, chief executive
officer for Keys Energy. "I
anticipate Keys Energy will be
able to grow its green trans-
former program and replace
outdated, petroleum-based
transformers as units near the
end of their use."
Currently, an electric trans-
former utilizing a mineral oil-
based coolant costs $1,168. A
transformer utilizing soybean
derived coolants costs $1,246.
The board previously added
a business priority to its strate-
gic plan at its May 23 meeting
to deal with the issue of climate
change. The newly adopted pri-
ority calls for Keys Energy staff
to "develop a plan to reduce
atmospheric concentrations of
greenhouse gases while consid-
ering the rate impact on cus-
tomers."
Electric transformers require
a long lead time for production
and order fulfillment, and Keys
Energy anticipates the environ-
mentally friendly transformers
to be delivered by the end of the
calendar year. .

restaurant

ITALIAN / From 17

Desserts on the menu all
handmade include Tiramisu,
Italian cheesecake and Key Lime
cannoli. But Ferns doesn't have a
favorite.
"I love them all," he said.
The restaurant also boasts a
large collection of wine and beer,
many of them Italian. But despite
the alcohol, Ferns called La
Cuccina family-oriented, saying
he loves to see families enjoying
a meal together.
He said the soon-to-begin
Sunday brunches also are geared
toward families.
"Pasta and eggs," he said,
"All sorts."
Take out is available, and
catering is soon to follow.
Ferns' credits the name of the
restaurant to his wife, Frita. It
pays homage to his mother-in-
law, whom he called the best
cook in the world.
"Fresh, different Italian
food," he said. "That's our
uniqueness."

Hooked on Books' Harry
Potter Party Weekend coincides
with the release of the seventh and
final Harry Potter book by J.K.

and the Deathly Hallows."
Kicking off the weekend is a party
Friday from 10 p.m. to midnight,
after which sales of the book can
begin. Dressing up in Potter-style
costumes is encouraged and prizes
will be awarded. Wizard games,
which include Harry Potter trivia
contests, crafts such as make-
your-own bookmarks and wizard
hats, hologram pins, and goodies
such as Butterbeer and Bertie
Bott's Every Flavor Beans, will be
on hand.
Saturday, Hooked on Books
opens at 8 a.m. with muffins, cof-
fee and juice, and the Potter cele-
bration continues.
"The Harry Potter books


appeal to all ages," said Cathy
Keller, who owns the independent
bookstore with business partner
Penny Bower. "From the youngest
readers to people in their 80s, the
series has appealed to the majority
of people."
Hooked on Books is donating
$7 for each pre-ordered book and
each book sold during the week-
end to the media centers of Coral
Shores High School and the
Plantation Key School.
For more information or to
reserve a copy, call 517-2602.

Tavemier Towne, has decided to
heavily discount "Harry Potter
and the Deathly Hallows," and
will open at midnight on July 21.
According to owners Joan Bell
and Jenny Bell-Thomson,
"Discounting the book makes
sense for us because it's a way to
thank the customers who have
supported us over the years. Fans
of the Potter series are welcome to


the store Friday from 10 p.m. to
midnight to purchase the book, as
well as participate in trivia and
costume contests. Prizes include a

Key Largo

Bonefish are the
target in August
Seeing ghosts would be a pos-
itive sign for anglers during the
sixth annual Key Largo Ghost
Hunt bonefish tournament, set for
Aug. 10 and 11 at the Dove Creek
Lodge, 147 Seaside Ave. at mile
marker 94.5 oceanside in Key
Largo.
Landing and releasing grey
ghosts, formally known as bone-
fish, can earn those anglers some
great prizes.
The tournament gets started
with a warm-up day Friday, Aug.
10. A kick-off party is set for 6:30
p.m. at the Dove Creek Lodge.
Aug. 11's fishing is to run
from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., to be fol-
lowed by an awards party at
Snapper's Raw Bar and Saloon,
located adjacent to the lodge.
Awards are to be presented to
the grand champion, top lady and
junior anglers, high-point fly
angler and angler releasing the
largest bonefish.
The tournament grand cham-
pion is to earn an invitation to the
2008 IGFA Inshore Champion-
ship.
Entry fees are $150 per adult
angler and $50 per junior angler.
Participating anglers must be
members of the International
Game Fish Association, so non-
members must add $15 to their
entry fees a discount from the
regular $35 annual IGFA dues.

spots in the District 8 tournament.
Marathon took a 3-2 lead into
the bottom of the sixth inning but
lost when two walks and two
errors led to two Liberty City


runs.
Yoniel Esquirol-Lopez started
for Marathon and pitched into the
final inning before reaching his
pitch limit.
"Yoniel pitched excellent, he
gave up a total of six hits and this
.was a good hitting ball club,"
Marathon head coach Spook
Roussin said.
The team has been struggling
with delays and schedule changes
throughout the tournament. Its


last game turned out to be no dif-

Marathon was slated to play a

Back to school for fish violators


Biscayne officials
are hoping to
educate anglers
Associated Press

Starting in August, sport fish-
ermen who violate regulations
in Biscayne National Park will
find themselves back in school.
A sharp reduction in marine


fauna and a major increase in
violations by sport fisherman
prompted officials to include the
classes as part of a broader plan
to prevent the extinction of the
park's fish population, said
Richard Curry, the park's coor-
dinator for scientific research.
"To do-that, we want to edu-
cate fishermen in terms of how
their activities affect the envi-


ronment,' he said.
The most common violations
are catching protected species,
catching more fish than allowed
per species and catching small
fish that have not reached repro-
ductive age.
In 2006, fines for sport fish-
ing violations in the park
increased 150 percent, said
Didier Carod, a police supervi-

A 'real tough' ending for team

itive.
Instead of awarding Marathon
(3-3) a forfeit victory, district
administrators ruled they play
Liberty City.
"We were basically even on
the run rule for who was in the
fourth spot," Roussin said.
"District administrators told
me..., 'You guys play each other
and whoever wins is in."'
Liberty City was also 3-2 at
the time.
Roussin said many parents
were upset with the decision -
and then the game started.
Roussin said the team was on
the losing end of several question-
able calls by the umpires, includ-
ing a first-inning play that saw
Liberty take a 1-0 lead. -
Marathon was attempting to
turn a double play to end the
inning when Liberty's runner ran
into second base standing up to
break it up. Umpires ruled he did
not obstruct the defender and the
run was allowed.
Down 2-0 in the top of the fifth
inning, Marathon finally got on
the board. Yet again, though, they
ran into a controversial call.
Richard Keating singled to
open the inning and eventually
scored on a Taylor Davis base hit.
With runners on first and sec-
ond, Sean Roussin dropped down
a bunt fielded by Liberty's third
baseman. He threw to third for the
force-out, but no one was cover-
ing the bag. Two runs scored on
the play and Roussin reached
third to give Marathon a 3-2 lead.
Roussin said Liberty's coaches
objected to the call and a run
eventually came off the board as a
result. Marathon did take the lead,
however, on a Keating single in


Upper Keys also out

The ipper Ke\s 11- and
12-year-old All Stars lost their
first-round playoff game
against North Miami Saturday,

Few details \ere available
at press time but the team had
previously defeated North
Miami 6-1 during tournament
play.
With the loss, the Upper
Keys ended Distct 8 Little
League Tournament action

his second at-bat of the inning.
With a 3-2 lead in the bottom
of the sixth, Esquirol-Lopez
reached his pitch limit with two
runners on base and one out.
Keating came in to finish the
game, but a walk, a passed ball
and a botched pop fly eventually
led to a 4-3 Liberty City victory.


with a 5-2 record.
The team had firushed the
first round as the No. 2 learn in

Roussin said the squad played
great throughout the tournament
and should be proud of their
effort.
"The way it ended was real
tough; we had our chances,"
Roussin said. The "kids kept their
heads up and [they] will have
other opportunities."


Most violators unaware


FISH / From 24

sor at the National Park Service.
Most violators are unaware
they are breaking the law, in part
because regulations can vary
among the different jurisdic-
tions that govern Florida's
waters, Curry said.
First-time violators will qual-
ify for classes at the park instead
of fines.
The 200-square-mile
Biscayne National Park extends
from Key Largo north to Key
Biscayne off Miami.
Researchers have said marine
life in the Florida Keys ecosys-


tem, including more than 400
species of fish, has been dramat-
ically reduced because of exces-
sive fishing and development
along the coastline. At risk is the
more than $11 billion that sport
fishing generates for the state.
"It is a crisis, because the
park is experiencing a degrada-
tion of its habitat and the effects
of excessive fishing," said
Jerald Ault, a University of
Miami marine biologist.
Only reducing the rate of fish
mortality or increasing the size.
'f fish that may be caught will
improve the numbers of marine
life in the park, Ault said..

Morris, all of Islamorada.
weighed in 26.5 pounds of
dolphin.

Key Wester wins
swordfish tourney

Key Wester Steve Steams
won the one-night
Southermost S\\ ordfish
Tournament after fighting a
swordfish he estimated
weighed more than 250
pounds for three hours and
seven minutes.
Stearns, fishing on the
Sea-Clusion with Capt.
Chuck Butler. earned his
first-ever tournament victory.
During the course of the
battle, Steams said, the
swordfish sounded six times
or so and went deep.
Second place went to
John Allison of Key West,
who fished on Capt. Mario
Perez' h'lire Cap. Allison's
released fish was estimated
at 80 pounds.
The Southernmost
Swordfish Tournament, held
overrught from Saturday into
Sunday morning in Key
West waters, dreo 61 anglers
fishing on 15 boats.


Collins laps Black in IGFA


Robert Collins of Naples
stood in front of 27 other com-
petitors, their friends and fami-
lies, press and representatives of
the International Game Fish
Association at last Wednesday's
awards ceremony at the Islander
Resort to accept his Grand
Champion trophy.
His come-from-behind victory
in the IGFA's Inshore World
Championship ended a storybook
run for 17-year-old Richard
Black of Tavemier as well as
Black's two-day leading advan-
tage coming into the final day of
the Islamorada event.
This truly is a world event.
The seventh annual tourna-
ment brought the winners of
IGFA-qualifying tournaments
from around the world.
Justin Jones, winner of the
25th Barramundi Classic in
Australia, and Mark Wals, winner
of the Murchison Falls Open in
Uganda, were among those
signed up to compete.
Islamorada's John Timura,
Jim Bokor and Linda Denkert
also received invitations by win-
ning qualifying tournaments.
I love the idea of this-tourna-
ment. There is no other tourna-
ment that evens the playing fields
like the Inshore.
You can have two-man teams
that can dominate other flats tour-
naments like Tim Hoover and Jim
Bokor, Paul Tejera and Andy
Mills, or Tom Rowland and Rich
Tudor, but bust those teams up
and pair them with someone they
have never fished with before,
that's three straight days fishing
with someone different each day.
Now you're starting to feel the
pressure of the Inshore. Is it the
guide having to adjust to the
angler's skills, or the angler
adapting to the captain's
strengths?
The format is simple: Three
days fishing with three separate
captains picked at random.
Some captains specialize in
fishing Everglades National Park,
which means redfish and snook,
while other captains are more
comfortable sticking closer to the
ocean where bonefish, permit and
tarpon frequent.
Points are acquired by catch-
ing no more than three of each
species daily (tarpon, redfish,
snook, bonefish, permit). To earn
Sgrand-champion honors, the
angler must complete the five-

fish slam
over the
three days.
Black
was in the
process of
lapping the
field after
the second
day was
complete,
earning
1 4 0.0
points.
Next clos-
est, to


Black was Timura with 1,000
points.
Black lacked arguably the two
toughest fish of the five fish slam,
the permit and tarpon, and knew
to win the championship the final
day he and his guide would have
to produce.
"From the beginning, I was
going for the most points in the
artificial division by catching the
redfish and snook each day," he
said. "The final day's game plan
was to go out back and catch
three more reds and snook to
increase my points standings.
Then whatever time left over,
come back closer to home and try
for the permit and tarpon."
He continued, "We were
staked up on a spot where they
[tarpon] pretty much come
through and had a group of six
coming up to the boat about 40
feet away, threw the crab in front
of them, and they swarmed the
bait but never nicked the crab uo.


We had our shot."
On the other hand, Collins
lacked the redfish and snook
coming into the final day, opting
to rack up the bonefish, tarpon
and permit points the first two
days.
As a little luck and a lot of
skill would have it, the Day 3
draw of captains would pair
Collins with Capt. Larry Sydnor,
who knows Everglades. waters as
well as most guides fishing today.
By 10 a.m., the pair caught
and released three redfish and
three snook and were heading
back to Islamorada waters to
complete the double slam by
catching another bonefish.
Game over.
Runner-up grand champion
was awarded to Naples angler
Troy Pruitt.
It was a bittersweet tourna-
ment for Black, having accrued
the most overall points in the arti-
ficial division, earning, him the
title in that division, but missing
out on the slam, which would
have had him in competition for
overall grand-champion honors.
The top-guide award for the
captain who earned the most
points with his three different
anglers went to Capt. Mark
Gilman of Islamorada, with Chris
Jones second.

Get out now to avoid the lobster mobsters


.J-We're only a week away from
the big lobster hunt lobster
mini-season with an invasion
of so many people that you can
have trouble counting them all on
the water.
Starting this weekend, we'll
see the influx of boaters search-
ing-out those elusive secret holes
that only about 200 people know
about. It will be a busy time here,
but what about now?
We have the dolphin action
offshore along with tuna, a few
billfish and the occasional
wahoo. We have the action in the
bay, which is best in the evenings
for snapper, grouper and a variety
of fun species.
We have the reef action for
yellowtail and mangrove snapper.
We have the summer tarpon, with
quite a few big ones still around
bIoth the bridges and the flats. The
wrecks offer permit while the
flats also offer them, along with
bonefish.
And that just about covers it.
Don't get me wrong; I'm not
saying there's nothing to do. Just


think how
Sm any
places in
the world
would like
to have this
ma n y
t options for
S f fishing
S every day?
S It's just that
there are
not too
many excit-
Dave Navarro ing things
to report in
the summer.
Yes, there are some spectacu-
lar catches happening almost
daily, but it has varied from venue
to venue. It's hard to highlight
one fishery in the summer
because most all are equal in pro-
ductivity and right now, that level
is very high.
Taking them one at a time, I'll
start offshore with the dolphin.
It has been very good well off-
shore, with mixed results within
the first 5 miles from the reef.


The good news is the weather has
been cooperative for the most
part, giving most anglers the abil-
ity to go well offshore. The best
action of late has been 25-plus
miles beyond.the reef.
But this can get expensive for
some, using that much fuel. But
for the most part, the larger and
more numerous fish have been in
this area.
The problem with predicting
dolphin fishing is that with all of
the movement, it can change
from hour to hour, much less
from day to day.
For those who don't like to be
that far out, try fishing fairly
close in and take your chances.
You should find some fish any-
way and you will have the option
of returning to the reef for some
bottom fishing. It has been very
good for yellowtail in the daytime
along 55 to 75 feet of water.
In the evenings, the mangrove
snapper seem to turn on in these
same depths..Use your machine
to find the schools, and not just a
depth finder thinking that the fish


are covering the reef. They will
be in pockets and they, too, move
at will.
The tarpon action has been
excellent around the bridges and
flats. The best time around the
bridges has been the early evenings
using live mullet, live pinfish or
live crabs. The flats tarpon have
been very accommodating to live
shrimp, live crabs and flies.
Quite a few fun fish as well as
nice snapper have also been
around the bridges. Don't skimp
on bait, as there has been enough
action from all of the species to
make you go through it pretty fast.
Both the bay and Hawk
Channel have been fair to good
with snapper action as-well as
quite a few grouper. The best time
to fish both for good action has
been the evenings. This is also
more comfortable for the anglers,
with the summer temperatures
and light winds. You could end up
feeling like the only thing missing
is the apple in your mouth during
the heat of the day with no wind.
In both these venues, the use


of good chum will ensure action
and make the difference from
fishing to catching.
The same is true for the
wrecks. The advantage of fishing
the gulf wrecks in the summer is
the ability to get out there without
having your kidneys switching
sides on the way. They are easier
to find in the summer with calm
waters. They have been loaded
with permit and some very nice
grouper. Look for some big lane
snappers as well as muttons near
the bottom.
No matter which way you go,
you should get some nice action,
as all of the types of summer fish-
ing are in good shape right now.
Make sure you have enough bait
as well as fluids for you to drink
to beat the heat.
You may want to try to hit sev-
eral areas in a day with'the long
days that we have now.
