The battle against the

Lower Keys bloom
A persistent algae bloom
off the Lower KeNs is keep-

killing some of the seagrass
bed underneath it, flats
guides and researchers say.

Keys pit bulls
Pit bulls have been all

large number of such dogs
of late. raising suspicions it
may have to do with local
dog-fighting. See stood.

Algae bloom clogs waters


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A persistent algae bloom
clouds visibility and drives off
fish in areas of southwest Florida
Bay, backcountry guides and
researchers says.
"It's ugly water, kind of green
and murky," guide Steve Friedman
said. "It looks like a really thin
bowl of pea soup. I wouldn't want
to swim in it, and I can't imagine a
fish would, either."
Martin Moe, an Upper Keys
biologist who serves on the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary Advisory Council,
alerted sanctuary managers about
"the extensive and intense algae
bloom."
"Visibility at the bottom in 8 to
10 feet is measured in inches,"
Moe said. "There is nothing in the
plankton but algae. I fear for life
of the turtle grass and sponges, as
well as fish and lobsters."


The bloom essentially covers
"the southwest corer of Florida
Bay," from Long Key and Lower
Matecumbe Key to the Bob Allen
Keys and Crab Keys, said
Friedman, a seven-year backcoun-
try captain.
The bloom existed in the area
since before the 2004 hurricane
season, he said, but was dimin-
ished by passing storms.
"It cleaned up for a while, but
then came back," Friedman said.
"This is as bad a bloom as I've
ever seen," he said in an e-mail to
sanctuary staff.
.On some falling tides,
Friedman said, he can see plumes
from the bloom extending into the
Atlantic Ocean and obscuring vis-
ibility at Cheeca Rocks.
"We're just lucky this isn't a
red tide," he said, referring to a
type of bloom more toxic to
marine life.
Eric Bartels, a staff scientist at


Mote Marine Laboratory in the
Lower Keys, said he learned of
the bloom only recently. He sent
water-sampling vials to state-
agency staff on Long Key to take
a samples for testing.
"I had not heard it described as
that big," Bartels said. "We hope
to learn more about it, and are
looking for more information
about the specific areas of con-
cern."
The bloom does not initially
appear to be connected to a long-
lived bloom in the northeast sec-
tions of Florida Bay. That bloom
was reported to be dissipating ear-
lier this summer.
The main threat from the
bloom in the southwest bay
appears to be clouding the water,
so marine organisms on the bot-
tom starve for lack of light, Moe
said.
"It's a bit early yet for doom-
and-gloom predictions, so I hope
I'm worried over nothing," Moe
said in a follow-up email.

Wheeler said prior to the TDC
meeting.
Instead, revenue from one
third of the three-penny-per-dol-
lar hotel bed tax will fund other
tourism projects, including other
requests from county govern-
ment. Many of those projects
would have to be cut to make
room for Vandenberg funding,
according to the TDC.
Tuesday's meeting rubber-
stamped those DAC recommen-
dations as expected by most
members of the board.
Technically, the debate over
using TDC money to fund the
sinking is not over.
The County Commission must
still approve the TDC's budget-
and could override the
Vandenberg's denial.
Such a step would be unprece-
dented, and some say may not
even be legal. And Neugent,
Spehar and Murphy all said earli-
er they oppose taking the money
against DAC recommendations.
Di Gennaro said he, too, will
not push for that, and is instead
considering requesting the TDC
money again next year. But he
said earlier this month that sink-
ing the ship is still on schedule
and will recommend the money,

infrastructure fund.

A giant tail: Stubborn Gambian rats remain


A few holdouts
among Gambians
frustrate FWC
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Gambian giant pouch rats on
Grassy Key are proving to be
more formidable foes than
expected for Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission and U.S. Department
of Agriculture workers.
A team comprising the two
agencies has been working
since May to eradicate the
invasive rodent and recently
completed pulling traps from
two areas on the island where
the rats' population was
believed to be concentrated.
But Scott Hardin, exotic-
species coordinator for the
Wildlife Commission, said the
rats have continued to be spot-
ted by hidden cameras and a
few stragglers have been live-
captured.
"We're considering the pos-
sibility of bait shyness,"
Hardin said. "If they get
.exposed to a certain kind of
bait and it's not enough to kill
them, they'll never go near it
again." -
The& most recent effort fol-
lowed an initial six-week pro-
grarn,i which saw workers
deploy 1,000 PVC-tube bait
stations across the island. The
stations were pre-baited with
peanut butter before having a
zinc-phosphide toxicant added
for another week.


Hardin said. the remaining
population, was found at the
west end of Morton Street,
where no homes were located,-
and at the east end of Grassy
Key on a small block between
Morton and Ferreire streets and
Avocado and Lime avenues.
Hardin said he believes the
population at the west end of
Morton Street has been elimi-
nated but that the rats continue
to survive near people's homes.
"They've grown up right
around those houses and so
they don't move around as
much," he said. "Pregnant
females may move even less."
Hardin said all traps have
been pulled and alternative
baits, such as anti-coagulants,
are being considered. In the
meantime, monitoring and live-
trapping will continue in the
concentrated areas.
"My belief is we got a bunch
of them, but the last ones are
always the toughest ones and
that's what we're dealing
with," he said. "Everything's
not going to perfection, but it's
a matter of us being committed
to seeing this through."
Gambian rats are an African
species that can grow up to
nine pounds and reportedly
appeared on Grassy Key some-
time between 1999 and 2001,
when they were released by a
resident who had been breed-
ing them to sell to pet stores.
Hardin emphasized that any
locals spotting a Gambian rat
on Grassy Key should call
(866) 484-7586.

Soak season starts


SEASON / From 1

Estimates of a season-long
harvest based on the surveys typ-
ically wind up being "notoriously
inaccurate," he said.
"Lobster move around. You
can't tell where they're going to
be during the season," Matthews
said. "They move where they
want to. I'm sure they have good
reasons for doing it but we don't
understand what they are."
With an estimated 30,000 peo-
ple diving Keys waters during
last week's lobster sport days,
there is no way to know how
many found their limit of 12 for
the two days. Reports are mixed
and anecdotal at best.
"We've heard people did well
in some spots, and other areas
were pretty poor," Piton said.
Law officers and dive-shop
operators said the 2007 mini-sea-
son seemed to have an uncom-
monly high number of people
taking part for the first time.
"There were a lot more novice
divers, and it seems they did pret-
ty poorly," Matthews said. "But
experienced people who know
what they're doing seemed to
limit out without too much trou-
ble."
As the regular season opens,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offi-
cers will pay special attention to
watching trap lines, on alert
against attempts to rob the wood-
en or plastic boxes that belong to
the 675 licensed trap fishermen in
SMonroo County ... .-.


Stealing lobster from a trap, or
molesting a trap in any way,
counts as a felony under Florida
law.
The start of last season was
"awful" for trap thefts, Geiger
Key fisherman Rusty Appleby
said. "These guys were taking
thousands of dollars away from
fishermen, in terms of lost catch-
es and stolen gear. They: were
showing no respect for us or our
gear." \ .
The local lobster industry
totals about 1,200, with boat
mates and staff at seafood houses,
according to estimates.
Another 152 people in Monroe
County hold commercial licenses
to dive for lobster. Commercial
fishermen can trap or dive for
lobster, but cannot do both.
After two seasons marred by
hurricanes that destroyed traps
and other gear, a tranquil 2006-07
season closed with catch reports
showing a total statewide harvest
of 4.9 million pounds.
Of the 4.5 million pounds
caught in traps, about.4.2 million
pounds were harvested from
Keys waters. A legal-size lobster
weighs about 1 pound.
Commercial divers took
251,000, a state report concludes.
About 60 percent of that came
from the Keys.
Recreational divers statewide
took an estimated 634,750
pounds of lobster from Keys
waters most of the 1.06 mil-
lion pounds taken recreatnonalls
throughout Florida. About a ihird
of the recreational haul took place
During mini-season.

BORDER / From I

Phase two of the construc-
tion is expected to be complete
by next April. The finished
building will utilize 9,400
square feet of space. Currently,
the office uses only 4,300
square feet.
"There's always a new sta-
tion somewhere in the country
that needs to be built," Maier
said.- "Right now, the
Southwest border is getting a
lot of the funding, but it was
our turn to get a new station
and we're grateful to get it."
The Marathon station is one
of the busiest Border
Protection offices outside the
Southwest, if not the busiest,
since the Keys are ripe for
Cuban arrivals.
Migrants, such as 27 Cubans
picked up at Truman Avenue
and Duval Street in Key West
Monday, enter the building on
the west side through what is
known as a "sally port." A gate
opens, allowing vehicles to
enter a fenced-in area sur-
rounded by tall, black fencing
curved inward at its peak.
"That's a standard detention
facility feature a secure area
where subjects can be loaded
or unloaded without a high risk
of their escape," Maier said.
Maier said Monday's group
is suspected to have arrived in
a smuggling adventure, though
they claimed to have made
their way to the U.S. on a
homemade boat.
He gave the Keynoter a tour
of the facilities as the group
was being processed.
"No boat was recovered and
they showed no sign of expo-
sure; related to a long trip at
sea," he said, noting that
method of travel usually leads
to bad sunburn, blisters and
even sea lice.


Smugglers are subject to
penalties as severe as a
$100,000 fine and one year of
jail per alien possibly stiffer
if it is proven the smuggling
was done solely for financial
gain.
And in recent years, the U.S.
Attorney's Office in Miami has
been vigorous in its prosecu-
tions, and federal judges have
been handing down long prison
sentences to those convicted.
After being unloaded inside
the sally port, the group is then
led inside to the migrant pro-
cessing area. Maier said the
unit could accommodate as
many as 75 people at a time.
Once inside, men are placed
in separate holding cells from
women and children. There is
also a juvenile cell for use in
the event a child arrives with-
out family members.
The cells are empty except
for benches along the walls and
are enclosed with thick
Plexiglas used commonly in
holding facilities. All 27 men,
women and children waited
patiently, wrapped in blankets
provided for them, to be
processed.
Maier said the migrants are
generally only in the facility
for a few hours so their finger-
prints, photographs and biogra-
phical information can be
recorded.
Eventually, after their infor-
mation is verified and they are
served with a notice to appear
in front of an immigration
judge, the migrants are
released on their own recogni-
zance.
Church World Services even
provides them with clothes and
a meal usually Miami Subs.
Maier said since opening in
May, 772 migrants have been
processed in the new building.
The vast majority have been
Cuban.

'Glades restoration

is long-term answer

Some take the long view. Others are more shortsighted.
Both perspectives were on display this week at a regional
water summit organized by the South Florida Water
Management District.
The gathering drew water managers, utility representatives,
environmentalists, elected officials, farmers and others.
Not much time was spent on assessing the impact of urban
sprawl on the region's water resources.
But virtually all agreed the problems of cyclical wet and dry
years, degradation of the region's largest water recharge area and
the lack of progress in completing the giant Everglades restora-
tion are all factors at work.
In the Miami Herald, Reporter Curtis Morgan reports that
many participants urged adding capacity to Lake Okeechobee as
a backstop, especially given the dilemma that water managers
face now:
In wet years, the district dumps millions of gallons of freshwa-
ter to relieve the threat of flooding downstream. In dry years, the
district imposes water restrictions that reduce usage but do little
to address the real problem.
And what, you might ask, is the real problem?
It's fairly simple. Much of the urban fringe in the westernmost
reaches of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties
were wetlands, which flooded during some periods and then dry
in other years.
Efforts to "dry out" these regions for development created a
series of canals that act as drains. These canals also disrupt the
natural sheet flow of freshwater into the Everglades.
And that natural, slow process of cleansing has not been
replaced by all of man's intervention since the first canals were
dug.
The Everglades restoration project now estimated to cost
more than $15 billion and climbing would restore some of
that natural process. But it doesn't address the immediate prob-
lem of too much consumption and not enough conservation.
One Lee County elected official even advocated dumping
excess lake water into the Everglades, rather than using the
Caloosahatchee River and St. Lucie River as the overflow pipes
to the sea on both coasts.
That, of course, trades one ecological disaster for another,
especially given the impact of dumping agricultural runoff into
the Everglades without the cleansing action of marshes and wet-
lands.
Keys backcountry guides can testify to the impact of these
emergency dumpinggs" pointing to stress on marine estuaries,
sea grass beds and fisheries.
There is no quick fix.
We support the long view: Restore the Everglades. That's crit-
ical. Push for more conservation. That's critical. Pray for a spate
of wet seasons. That's out of our hands.

Big business pushes anti-warming science


EDITOR:
A recent letter writer claimed "there are just
as many anti-global-warming scientists that
intelligently disagree with the twisted facts
being pushed on us by the global-warming
'the sky is falling' group." This is the biggest
lie perpetuated by those who insist on treating
global warming as a political issue rather than
as a scientific one.
The fact is that only a tiny minority of sci-
entists disagrees with the facts behind global
warming. The percentage is about the same as
those who insist that smoking isn't harmful.
However, the big businesses that will be
impacted by efforts to reduce harmful emis-
sions continue to push the same kind of shod-


dy scientific work (usually paid for by thdseb.
same interests) that had been used to defend
smoking in the past.
Unfortunately, a lot of people have an
innate hatred of Al Gore and thus are willing
to put on blinders to anything associated with
him, no matter how scientifically valid. It's
too bad that so many politicos who are in the
pockets of big business are willing to pander
to that crowd.
And that so many unwitting people are:
.willing to accept the pseudo-science of those
who care more about profit than our longer-
term quality of life.

Islamorada council starts thinking globally


EDITOR:
I would like to commend the Islamorada
Village Council for taking the initiative to bring
sustainability to the forefront of our village.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill was instrumental in
setting a plan for our community in motion. I
realize it is an endeavor that will have to include
all our citizens, as we are all ultimately respon-
sible for climate-change solutions.
I also realize the problems are not so much
technical. Business and industry are exploding
with new and innovative ideas and solutions.


However, the, problems of policy and funding
need to be addressed.
After recently attending Gov. Crist's Florida
Summit on Climate Change, I am encouraged,
for he is calling for big changes in the state. We
need leadership in our own community to help
find the most effective and efficient solutions.
I would like to thank the council for bringing
these issues forward and look forward to sup-
porting its efforts.

Councilmen should swallow pride, vote for sewers


EDITOR:
As we approach a possible Marathon City
Council vote at a special meeting Aug. 8 on a
resolution over how to charge for sewers, I
would like to share some thoughts.
Councilmen Mike Cinque and Don Vasil
voted against proceeding with Areas 4 and 6 in
the past, arguing we must have guaranteed a 40
percent minimum grant funding, preferably in
hand, before we proceed with any aspect of the
project beyond planning. I think they will admit
those votes have been cast with the certainty
they will likely be outvoted 3-2 on this issue.
We all experienced a very detailed reality
check at the July 25 special meeting on the need.
to complete our sewers by June 30, 2010, on the
low likelihood of getting additional grant fund-
ing in the short term, and on the implications-if
we don't proceed.
It is easy to vote against proceeding and get
cheered by those who believe we should or
could opt out of the overall project of sewering
the Keys, or believe we could delay until the
feds and state cough up all the costs. Easy when
you know you will be outvoted. It's a cheap way
to gain or maintain popularity with some.
However, they cannot legally know they will
be outvoted. What if another council member
changes his or her mind and joins Vasil and
Cinque, abstains or cannot make the meeting?
Can they accept the responsibility for further
delaying and possibly killing the Marathon
sewer project? Can they accept responsibility
for the serious repercussions for Marathon citi-
S' - j J


zens now that they understand them?
They should not make the mistake of believ-
ing the majority of citizens are so gullible. I will
not judge their vote against the resolution less '
harshly just because they fail, and I doubt others
will either. I will see it as their failure to adapt
to new information and a lack of courage to: ,
change their minds. Neither are characteristics
we want to see in our elected representatives.
I urge Cinque and Vasil to vote to support
Resolution 2007-98 Aug. 8. It should be unani-
mous.

Residents need to be more vocal and stand up


EDITOR:
After reading the letter to the edi-
tor by Jane Packer with the
Marathon Nearshore Water
Committee, I immediately sat down,
put pen to paper and began writing.
I vacationed in the Keys many
times before I made my move. My
first visit was in 1999, and I knew
the instant I arrived I was home.
That feeling remained and I have
spent:the past few years working
and sacrificing in order to move to
and live in this wonderful place.
Perhaps during my visits I was
too busy to notice the changes. Or
perhaps I was guilty of relying on
the comfort provided by the devel-
opers' suites, but now, as a resident,
I can honestly say I am saddened,
frustrated and scared.
I believe the last big turning
point for Marathon was a 2005 visi-
tor named Hurricane Wilma. Still
today, the memory remains in the
decay of places like the Quay, and
it's all too common to drive down
U.S. 1 and see contractors making
repairs that are also leftovers from
two years ago.
What has happened to the people
of Marathon? Where are they
going? It seems the brave and
weathered die-hards have thrown in


the towel. It seems as there is a slow
disease taking over and Marathoners
are slowly dying off.
Property after property goes up
for sale and this leaves the rest of us
as prey to the developer vultures. It
is sad and frustrating that we are
being gobbled up acre by acre at an
alarming rate. Where are the resi-
dents supposed to go? What about
affordable housing and food? How
do we survive?
At this rapid rate of development,
we are going to blink our eyes and
wake up in Belize or St. Martin, and
the heart of the Keys will stop beat-
ing.
It's easy to see the money mon-
gers are systematically getting rid of
the very people that are this commu-
nity, and what we will be left with
will be concrete buildings with a
plastic personality. How convenient
for the upcoming resorts and condo
communities to import their
employees with the lure of a visa
and an apartment.
If we can stand face to face with
Mother Nature and all her fury, why
can't we stand together and say,
"No, this is our home, and it is not
for sale."
Missy Kowalewski
Marathon


Local contractors care more


EDITOR:
I just wanted to chip.in my two
cents on a subject that has been of
some notoriety the past few
months in Marathon, that of
Gonzalez Landscaping and its con-
tract with the city to maintain vari-
ous properties.
Living near Sombrero Beach
and utilizing it daily, I believe I
have a perspective of their per-
formance that might be better than
that of the average citizen of
Marathon. I would like to com-
mend the Gonzalez brothers and
their crew for the exemplary job
they did getting our park and its
beach back in shape after the
recent Fourth of July festivities
there."
I was in the park by 8 the fol-
lowing morning and it was as
clean as it ever is, and that is say-
ing something. The Gonzalez crew
had shown up at 5 a.m. to do a job
for which they are compensated
but rarely properly appreciated.
Not long after the task was
completed, Greg Konrath's
Marathon Garbage Service crew
showed up to haul away the small
mountain of accumulated refuse.
This kind of effort just goes to
show the importance of hiring


local people, when possible, for
services such as these.
It clearly illustrates the greatest
benefit of having people contract-
ed to perform services for our city
who care about our city. I want to
personally applaud and thank Luis,
Willie, Greg and all of their crew
members for performing the task
so well and so quickly.

Gas prices fixed
EDITOR:
Can someone explain why we are
paying $3.09 to $3.29 for regular gas
in Marathon?
I can, and have purchased gas in
Tavernier and Key Largo for $2.77
and $2.79 the past two weeks.
Isn't about time Monroe County
State Attorney Mark Kohl looked into
this? I suggest that simply checking
the bills for the wholesale price and
even adding a slight difference for
travel of the trucks to Marathon could
uncover what looks very like a price-
fixing scheme in Marathon.
Doesn't price gouging fall under
the state attorney's purview?

mini-season. He did it right, but many others violate the rules.


Another mini-season and more nightmare stories


EDITOR:
After living in the Keys for seven years
now, lobster mini-season still never ceases
to amaze me.
Early in the week, I watched as visitors
renting the house across the canal from
me parked a semi on top of the septic tank
and ran over plants, then parked three
huge boats and two more trucks outside.
Monday afternoon, as I was taking my
boat out to snorkel and enjoy the sun, I
noticed a man and two kids snorkeling in
Bogey Channel right in front of the
bridge, dead center, where most boats
cruise through. There was'no dive flag
visible and boat traffic was high. That's
where I heard the best mini-season line
yet.
I pulled up to them to tell them boaters
couldn't see them and they were going to
get hit.
"Where's your dive flag?" I yelled out
to them.
"I live here, I don't need one," he said.
Just a guess, but if he is a Keys resi-
dent, I would think he'd know the law
says otherwise.
Later that night, walking to the No
Name Pub to get take-out pizza, I realized
my mistake. The place was jammed with
people, which is good, but many of them
were rude.
On Wednesday, I saw the renters' boats
leave the dock and return three times
- by noon, offloading their-legal limit..
each time and then heading back for
more.


Several times while on the water, I saw
huge boats scarring the bay bottom, as
well as zooming by snorkelers and divers
at a high rate of speed, giving them no
space whatsoever.
I realize that mini-season boosts our
local economy, but at what cost? Our sew-
ers and septic systems are overloaded; our
marine resources are compromised, and
our water quality deteriorated.
Perhaps we should get more law
enforcement from the mainland, where all
these people come from, to help enforce
the law. Or better yet, create a lottery sys-
tem in which only a certain amount of
permits are granted for mini-season to
ensure our precious resources are protect-
ed from the lobster mobsters.
There has got to be a better way.

The Fourth was fun
EDITOR:
We would like to thank everyone that
helped to make the Fourth of July spe-
cial. The parade in the morning and the
fireworks that evening were wonderful.
We are very fortunate to live where there
is such great community spirit. We'd
also like to thank Heidi Herzog and
Coldwell Banker-Schmitt Real Estate for
our lucky duck.;

same amount of money next year
as the current year.
The city is required to meet a
state-mandated rollback of 5 per-
cent, but several council members
said they would like to see more.
Total expenditures for the pro-
posed budget are estimated at
$9,434,380, down $345,559 from
the 2006-07 adopted budget. City
Finance Director Peter Rosasco
told the Keynoter expense cuts of
roughly $530,000 would meet the
higher 10 percent goal.
Most departments announced
significant decreases from the,
current budget, with three notice-
able exceptions: Code, Fire/EMS
and Police Services.
The Code Department budget
is proposed at $57,005 (24 per-
cent) more than the current year.


Code Supervisor Michael Storm
said another code officer is need-
ed to handle an increasing work-
load. He' believes the position
would provide ample cost recov-

Fire/EMS came in $62,953 (3
percent) over budget and Polices
Services $24,499 (1.7 percent).
The Planning Department pro-
jected a decrease of $106,720 (15
percent) from the current budget
while the Building (12 percent)
and City Clerk (33 percent) cate-
gories each announced cuts in
excess of $80,000.

outside of the standard cost-of-
living adjustment would help
reach their goal of a 10 percent
reduction.
Councilman Mike Cinque said
he believes the price of the city's
health-care plan is an area where
savings could be achieved.
Rosasco heard council's sug-
gestions and reassured them there
is more than enough time to make
adjustments to the budget before
adoption. He told the Keynoter
the legal department, deputy city
manager and Parks and
Recreation Department are all
looking into further decreases.
It is also possible for the city to
meet council's request if ;there
were additional revenue sources
available, he said.
"Marathon is in a unique and
good position because oft-deci-
sions made in the past," Rosasco
said at the meeting, noting the city
has done well by not spending its
reserves. "Our taxpayers are
going to be pleased.... We're
going to have the most healthy
fund balance in this county."
The latest proposed millage
rate for next year is set at 1.4809,
or $1.4809 per $1,000 of assessed
property value. Staff initially pro-
posed a maximum rate of 1.5035
on July 17.
According to the latest rate,
the owner of a $3:00,000
Marathon home would pay
$444.27 in property taxes next
year. At the current year's rate of
1.7896, the same owner would
have paid $536.88.
According to preliminary fig-
ures, the city would be expected
to collect $4,474,980 in property
taxes. The largest revenue source
outside of ad valorem taxes is the
city's share of the state sales tax,
which for Marathon is a half-cent,
expected to generate $1,329,977.

Dispute over Southernmost House heats up


Proposal for
big restaurant
ticks neighbor
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Instead of Jello molds and
fruitcake exchanges between
neighbors, Michael Halpern,
attorney for the owners of the
Southernmost House Grand Hotel
and Museum, and next-door attor-
ney Hugh Morgan trade heated
bickering.
Add talk of Halpem's interest
in converting the former Ramos
family house on Upper Duval
Street into a 150-seat restaurant,
and the exchange is heating up,
including allegations about tossed
rocks and broken windows.
The restaurant proposal went


before the city's Development
Review Committee July 12 and
next heads to the Key West
Planning Board Aug. 16.
"I've known for years that he
wanted to make the Southernmost
House into a [restaurant like]
Louie's Backyard, but two or
three times the size of it," Morgan
said of the owners' plans for the
111-year-old home.
The two attorneys have been at
odds for some time, with Morgan
- a former federal magistrate -
accusing Halpern of violating
code and having live bands per-
form past a 9 p.m. noise curfew;
Halpem accuses Morgan of look-
ing for the slightest excuse to call
the police or stop weddings from
being held at the popular attrac-
tion.
Morgan said a large rock was


Tattoo ban goes back

to City Commission


Tuesday court
date postponed,
deal seems near
By KYLE TEAL.
kteal@keynoter.com

A Tuesday hearing before
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Mark Jones over Key
West's 43-year-old ban on tattoo
parlors in Key West was called off


and that's acceptable" for both
parties he said.
McPherson declined to give
details of that compromise, as it is
still in the working phase.
"The mayor and Shawn Smith
are doing everything humanly
possible to make it work,"
McAlhany added. "They're were
all hard at work today and came to
a reasonable solution."
He still hopes to open his shop


thrown from the direction of the
Southernmost House one night he
was out of town, frightening his
wife, who was at home alone.
Halpern has refuted that, saying
that very evening, prosecutors
and judges were throwing a spe-
cial dinner and casting doubt that
any of those guests would toss a
rock through Morgan's window.
"He only has licenses for two,
but he has 14 transient rentals on
his Web site," Morgan said. "He's
the only one in town that can do
that."
Morgan filed a complaint
against Halpern for that reason on
May 26, 2006. He also cited a
storage shed constructed outside
his living room window, "where
they bang around at 7 in the
morning," he said. Halpem did
not return phone calls for com-
ment Monday and Tuesday.
Parking for the proposed
restaurant would go at 1401
Duval St., across the street from
where the late Charlie Ramos Jr.
lived. The Southernmost House is
at 1400 Duval St.
According to Morgan, 50
parking spaces are needed if the
property is converted to a restau-
rant; the property can account for


only half of those. Halpem wants
to substitute those missing spaces
with 100 spaces for bicycles.
Back when Key West and the
county were at the height of pros-
perity in 1896, the Queen Anne
architectural wonder was built for
$250,000 the equivalent of
about $6 million nowadays,
according to a Southernmost
House Web page.
In 1939, the Ramos family
purchased it for $49,000 from
Judge J. Vining Harris, when it
was known as Cafe Cayo Hueso,
a Cuban nightclub. Come 1954, it
morphed back into a residency
until 2001 when the city allowed


the owners to convert it to a 14-
room hotel and museum.
Tiffany-stained glass decorates
the ceiling, crown molding lines
the interior and 43 presidential
signatures grace the walls.
Halpem was previously denied
a restaurant license, but does offer
daiquiris from the bar for visitors
who pay a $5 entry fee to see the
museum and use the pool.
In November 2001, the city
allowed the house.to turn into a
public guesthouse but not a
restaurant or cafe. "I would just
prefer it in a way that doesn't dis-
turb our quality of life," Morgan
said.

Shelter sees more pit bulls


Numbers rise
as Vick charges
dominate news
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Bubba is a perfect specimen of
a Staffordshire terrier. He's got a
broad, heavy head, powerful
shoulders and tightly packed
muscles in his legs. He's got a
sweet disposition and loves peo-
ple.
But his perfection is lost on
many potential adoptive families
as soon as they see him. In com-
mon language, Bubba is a pit bull.
"These are social, affection-
ate, obedient and loyal dogs,"
said Tammy Fox, director of the
Florida Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals,
which runs the Stock Island ani-
mal shelter where Bubba's
housed.
Fox worries that a sudden
increase in the number of pit bulls
at the shelter could mean locals
are raising the animals for fight-
ing.
"There was a period of a
month when we had six 4-month-
olds," Fox said. "Right now we
have five. We haven't had any
reports of [organized] dog fight-
ing, but the excess number of pit
bulls makes me wonder what's
happening out there."
The breed is one of the most
controversial in the country. In
fact, owning one is illegal in
Miami-Dade County.
And of course, they've been in
the national headlines since
Atlantn nlrnnq naianrtprhnr'lc


Michael Vick was federally
indicted last month on dog-fight-
ing charges in which high-stakes
pit-bull fights reportedly were
held at a house he owns in
Virginia.
With tens of thousands of dol-
lars on the line for each fight, los-
ing dogs were put to death by
gunshot, hanging, electrocution
and being pounded on the pave-
ment, the indictment says.
Tony Taylor, 34, of Hampton,
Va., pleaded guilty Monday to
conspiracy to travel in interstate
commerce in aid of unlawful
activities, and conspiring to spon-
sor a dog in an animal-fighting
venture. His plea requires him to
testify against Vick and two oth-
ers charged with the same crimes,
which are punishable by up to
five years in prison. They've
pleaded not guilty and are set for
trial Nov. 26.
Some people say pit bulls have
a propensity for violence; others
argue it's owners who decide to
raise their dogs to be aggressive.
"We do not take in pit bulls,"
said Mardie Ingersoll, director of
the Upper Keys Humane Society.
"They can be a very sweet, won-
derful dog for people, but they
have a penchant for killing other
animals. I don't know if it's
ingrained or they're raised that
way."
Ingersoll said she has not
heard of organized fights in the
Upper Keys.
Monroe County Sheriff Rick
Roth said in his nearly 30 years
on the f ,A, he has not seen evi-
dence of dog fights in the Keys.
"T'vp npv.r hpardr nf nn nrann-


ized dog. fight down here," Roth
said. "Chickens, yes, but not
dogs."
Fox's concern grows partly
out of a cockfighting bust in
March, when a Rockland Key
man, was arrested on felony
charges for having 168 fighting
roosters on his property.
"After the rooster bust," Fox
said, "we had a blood-sport
expert come down. He mentioned
that what happens is if rooster
fights are going on and it goes
unchecked, it opens the opportu-
nity to start fighting dogs."
In Marathon and on Big Pine
Key, Stand up for Animals
Director Linda Gottwald suspects
the worst with at least two local
breeders of the dogs.
"When it was time for the
puppies to be of adoptive age,"
she said, "both [breeders] told me
they'd sold all of the puppies to
people in Homestead. It's been a
pat answer, and it makes me sus-
pect."
And it's not just these recent
incidents, Gottwald said. She said
she often tries to get the owners
of female pit bulls to have their
pets sterilized, but they often
don't. When she follows up to
help find adoptive homes for
what she says are generally large
litters of pups, "the pat answer is
we took them to Homestead."
She said pit bulls are one of
the hardest breeds to find homes
for, which makes her wonder
how local breeders find homes so
fast.
"It's very concerning to me
they're so quick to find homes,"
doottwad said. "And the breeders
are adamant not to get them
altered."

Guard repatriates
64 Cuban migrants
The U.S. Coast Guard on
Sunday repatriated 64 Cuban
migrants interdicted off the
Keys the past week.
The guard says they were
among four groups trying to
make it to the U.S.
Fifty-one of them were
found aboard suspected smug-
gling boats, one 35 miles off the
Dry Tortugas, the other 40 miles
south of Islamorada. Combined
in the two incidents, four sus-
pected smugglers were
detained.
The other migrants were
found on what are described as
rustic boats.
Woman dies after
trip to Keys jail
A Key West woman died
sometime early Tuesday after
having a seizure in a holding
cell at the Monroe County
Detention Center on Stock
Island.
SThe 32-year-old had been
'aire'ted early by Key West
police on drug-related charges
and was initially brought to the
jail at 4:49 a.m. Deputy Becky
Herrin said nurses there refused
to accept her as an inmate
because she appeared under the
influence of some type of sub-
stance.
Herrin said Key West police
took her to the emergency room
at Lower Keys Medical Center
at 4:57 a.m. and that she was
cleared by hospital staff and
returned to the jail at 6:41 a.m.
'Herrin said she was placed
info a holding cell prior to
booking at 8:30 a.m., while still
waiting to undergo booking
procedures, she became ill in
the holding cell. Jail medical
personnel responded and an
ambulance was called, as well.
She again was taken to the
hospital, where she died.
The Sheriff's Office didn't
immediately identify her, but
based on the charges against her
and location of arrest listed on
the agency's Web site, her name
was Jessica Hemandez.
She had been arrested, along
with Emesto Rodriguez, 44, of
Key West on counts of posses-
sion of cocaine, marijuana and a
controlled substance J ( '

Details emerge for new waste transfer site


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


. Four acres of Rockland Key
await the metallic drone of con-
struction leading to a new city of
Key West waste transfer station.
It's been called a necessity by
city department heads and a more
efficient way of relieving the
island of its 59,000 tons of
garbage a year.
But some say it's an ecological
step backward.
And with the City Commission
giving the green light for the $7.9
million project July 17, the Public
Works and General Services
departments are focused on the
hammer-and-nail goal at hand:
Get it done so Key West can more
effectively haul garbage to the
Broward County landfill for the
next 20 to 30 years.
An optimistic General Services
Director David Femandez gives
the project 12 months after a 60-
day final design phase. A pes-
simistic Fernandez estimates
around 18 months for completion.
The project's original bid from
Douglas N. Higgins Inc. was $8.4
million. The city approved it April
3 with the stipulation the contrac-


tor could be talked down to a
lower price.
Part of shaving off that money
came from Higgins lowering the
cost a quarter million, and reduc-
ing it more under the condition at
least 10,000 tons of fill are given
by the city.
The city has about 9,450 tons
available from an old blimp pad
and 6,240 tons that will be taken
out of the old Hawk missile site
that will account for the remainder
of the $450,000 savings -
$200,000.
The commission previously
approved $6.4 million for the
project in the 2006-07 fiscal year,
additional funds coming from the
Solid Waste Cash Reserves.
Public Works Director R.B.
Havens and Fernandez say the
cost of building a new waste-to-
energy facility is far out of reach,
likely somewhere between $30
million and $50 million.
When the resolution passed 6-
1 with its new price tag,
Commissioner Dan Kolhage dis-
sented, anyway, saying he could-
n't vote for such a costly project
without a clear plan for its conver-


sion to a waste-to-energy plant in
the future. Environmental group
Last Stand's sentiments were in
the same vein.
Waste-to-energy plants "have
been working very well," said
Odette Brown, spokeswoman for
Broward 'County Waste and
Recycling. She said that county's
two facilities, built in 1992, power
75,000 businesses and homes.
Leaders of the Rockland Key
project say it will have its advan-
tages, and is necessary immediate-
ly considering rising costs of con-
struction materials.
The only nearby waste-transfer
facility is on Stock Island, near the
Stock Island Detention Center,


Gerald Adams Elementary
School, Florida Keys Community
College, Key West Golf Club and
million-dollar condominiums,
which were built after the original
waste-to-energy facility was con-
structed.
The site was converted into a
waste-transfer facility in 2004,
and the 140-foot-tall landfill
dubbed Mt. Trashmore sprung up.
According to Fernandez, a
great deal of offensive odor
emanates from a mixture of water
and garbage. The mix of waste
and water breeds more bacteria,
and with portions of the 150 to
300 tons of daily solid waste
stored temporarily at the site,


neighbors bear the neighborly
stench.
The new facility will have
lower-maintenance neighbors, as
the adjoining property is line with
a rock-mining site, cement plant,
Monroe County Public Works
building and a depot for Waste
Management garbage trucks,
Fernandez said.
The garbage won't stay at the
new site for more than 24 hours
before it's shipped to Broward.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
said the real solution to solid-
waste savings is increased recy-
cling.
"Key West has never reached a
high level of recyclability."

Parrot Key in Key West (above) was formerly a Hampton Inn, following a trend of redevelopment
that has some tourism officials crunching numbers. An increase in price and reduction in the
number of rooms available Keyswide will undoubtedly have an effect on the local economy.



Hotel rates increasing


And number of
rooms decrease,
affecting economy
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

Hotels are costlier in the Keys,
and rates are climbing fast. This is
no great secret, and frequent visi-
tors like the Ann and Joe Grant
know price increases by heart at
their favorite local spots.
"Until a couple of years ago,
we could come to Key West and


stay for around $120 a night and
have a very nice place," Ann
Grant said. "The same places we
would pay $120 for are $170
now."
The steep price increases Grant
sees are not even as old as
Hurricane Wilma. Climbing rates
could mean a different tourist
demographic in the Keys.
Attractions owners in particular
worry a wealthier tourist might
erode their business. Facing these
changes, business owners hope all
tourists are like Grant. Instead of


changing vacation plans, she and
her husband cut back on their
spending in their hometown of
Savannah, Ga., so they can keep
coming to Key West.
But Keys lovers like the Grants
can't cut back forever. She warns
that special Web-based savings
and hotel discount plans are the
only things keeping her from con-
sidering other destinations.
Average nightly rates, adjusted
for inflation, nose-dived in 2001,

tions. Much of the logic behind
raising rates comes from a
marked decrease in supply, mean-
ing travelers have fewer rooms to
choose from.
According to Tourist Develop-
ment Council data, about 1,270
rentals units are closed now and
more than 800 of those and future
off-line units might never return,
instead becoming part of larger
units or residential property. The
Keys have about 15,270 different
rental units, from hotel rooms to
RV camping spots, according to
the same data.
Since 2003, hoteliers bet on
the same crush of tourists trying
to packinto the decreased num-
ber of rooms, and thus raised
rates. At first, tourists responded
by packing available rooms. But
as nightly rates jumped up toward
$200, occupancy dropped down
to earlier levels. Fewer rooms
available with normal occupancy
rates means fewer people are in
the Keys a nightmare for busi-
ness owners. Lodging and attrac-
tiois, owners both faced
decreased business.
/':Im not sure even people who
lived here all their lives get it:
Tourism is our only industry
down here," said Jodi Weinhofer,
president of the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Ivey West.

second Iraq trip


Intense regimen
recreates zone's
tense atmosphere

When most of us plan a trip
to a foreign country, we simply
find a good hotel, scout out the
best shopping areas and make
sure our passport is in order.
But for most military mem-
bers, deploying to a foreign
country such as Iraq and
Afghanistan involves a whole
lot more preparation before
departure.
For the son of an Islamorada
couple, going through the tough
mobilization training at Camp
Shelby, Miss., is probably the
hardest thing he's ever experi-
enced. But as the trainers like to
say, you have to sweat in train-
ing so you don't bleed in com-
bat.
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Sean
M. Coggin, son of retired Air
Force Master Sgt. Roy G.
Coggin and Rev. Barbara S.
Ammann of Islamorada, is a
security-forces specialist nor-
mally assigned to the 37th
Security Forces Squadron at
Lackland Air Force Base in San
Antonio.
He's preparing to deploy to
Camp Bucca, Iraq, where he per-
form force-protection duties.
Located 68 miles from the
Gulf Coast and about 110 miles
from New Orleans, La., Camp
Shelby is one of the largest train-
ing sites in the United States. At
any given time, it has the capa-
bility to train more than 12,000
Army, Air Force, Marine Corps,
Navy, Special Operation Forces,
National Guard and Reserve and
joint-operations personnel in
stressful conditions just like
they'll see in combat.
It's called "theater immer-
sion" in which soldiers, airmen
and sailors are put into a tough,
realistic, hands-on, theater-spe-
cific environment.
They live in forward operat-


. -. : -ing- bases, .interact -with- real-


Iraqis or Afghans, and patrol and
work in "villages" and "towns"
designed to replicate what they
will see when they deploy.
"This course is teaching us
about local Iraqi customs, army
combative skills, unarmed self
defense and other skills that will
be necessary to get the job done
and bring the rest of my squad
and team home," Coggin said.
He added, "This is my third
deployment working with other
the military services. Much of
the training that we have done
here is a repeat of my previous
training in the past. Security
forces conduct the same training
for the most part at their home
bases. This is my second deploy-
ment to Camp Bucca. I was a
part of the very first U.S. Air
Force group in January 2005 to
arrive at Camp Bucca."

IED training is a priority


COGGIN / From 16

Improvised explosive
devices, or roadside bombs, are
the No. 1 cause of casualties in
Iraq. So obviously, they are the
No. 1 priority in training.
Every soldier going through
training can be "hit" by an
"IED" at any time and place, and
can be exposed to an average of
30 "IED events" throughout
their training. This teaches them
to think quickly on their feet so
they become adaptive and flexi-
ble to their environments.
For Coggin and his fellow
service members, training for
deployment to Southwest Asia
means much more than learning
tactics and cultural differences.
It could literally be the differ-
ence between life and death.


While wearing protective masks, or gas masks, soldiers
simulate firing M-4 rifles equipped with lasers to show
accuracy on targets.

Benefits just a click away


U.S. database
can save Keys
residents money
By ALICIA BETANCOURT
Keynoter Contributor

Many people in our commu-
nity need help paying for pre-
scription drugs, health care, util-
ities and other basic needs. And
based on national estimates,
more than 18 percent of our res-
idents are eligible for but don't
receive some services.
According to the 2006
Monroe County health profile at
www.healthcouncil.org, 20 per-
cent of our residents 65 and
younger are uninsured, 15 per-
cent of the population is seniors,
and 37 percent of students
receive free or reduced-price
lunch.
While Medicare and Social
Security benefits are well
known, many residents espe-
cially seniors with limited
income and resources are not
taking advantage of government

programs that can improve the
quality of their lives.
The National Council on
Aging's BenefitsCheckUp, a
free and confidential online
service, helps residents, seniors
or people who care about them
determine what benefits they
qualify for and how to apply.
Using this service, residents
can find out if they qualify for
help with their prescription drug
costs, Medicare premiums,
health care, utilities, in-home
services or many more pro-
grams.
Developed and maintained
by the National Council on
Aging, BenefitsCheckUp is the
nation's most comprehensive
Web-based service to screen for
benefits programs for seniors
with limited income and
resources.
It includes more than 1,450
public and private benefits pro-
grams. Since 2001, more than 2
million people have used the


service.
The program takes about 20
to 30 minutes and can be
accessed from any computer.
The Monroe County
Cooperative Extension Service
has been offering the program as
part of its Medicare Part D edu-
cation at Keys senior centers
and other locations.
So far, the Extension Service
has helped 234 residents use the
Web-based BenefitsCheckUp
program.
According to the Access to
Benefits Coalition, the average
benefits savings per resident is
$110 per month. Plus, having
residents enrolled in a benefit
program reduces the cost for
emergency and social services.
For more information on
BenefitsCheckUp, call me 451-
4234 or visit www.Benefits
CheckUp.org.

Cooperative Extension Service.


LEGION COMES THROUGH: Jay Glover, intervention

American Legion convention in Orlando July 3 to receive
a $5,000 grant from the organization. The grant will help

impact on their kids' lives that they otherwise couldn't
afford such as medical, dental and day care; after-school
activities; and birthday presents.

Researchers find MS link


Work at UM
is considered
a breakthrough
McClatchy Tribune

After decades of searching,
teams of researchers at the
.University of Miami and else-
where have found a gene linked
to multiple -sclerosis that could
lead to breakthroughs in under-
standing and treating the often-
devastating disease.
The news was released last
week in related reports in Nature
Genetics and the New England
Journal of Medicine.
The studies examined more
than 10,000 DNA samples from
MS patients in the United States
and Europe to discover the genet-


ic link.
Wolfgang Streit, a University
of Florida neuroscientist not
involved with the research, called
the discovery "somewhat spec-
tacular" because researchers have
been searching for a link for 30
years.
Ultimately, researchers hope
the link between the gene and the
disease can help pharmaceutical
companies discover ways to treat
and perhaps even avoid the onset
of MS, which often occurs
between the ages of 20 and 40.
"This is the kind of major
development that we're expect-
ing from our genetics research,"
said Pascal Goldschmidt, UM's
medical school dean. He lured
more than 50 genetics
researchers from Duke


University to Miami and per-
suaded the Legislature to give the
school $80 million for genetics
research.
MS is a chronic inflammatory
disease of the central nervous
system in which the body's own
immune system attacks the spinal
cord and other areas. According
to the National Institute of
Neurological Disorders, most
patients experience "muscle
weakness in their extremities and
difficulty with coordination and
balance." At worst, the symptoms
can impair walking or standing
and might even lead to paralysis.
MS affects about 350,000
people in the United States. What
exactly causes MS is unknown.
Some researchers believe it may
be a combination of genetic and
environmental factors. There is
no cure.

a whopping 4,100 points (100
points are scored for a redfish,
300 for a bonefish and 400 for
completing a red/bone slam).
First runner-up among the
juniors was Robbie Ames fish-

In the young-adult division,

He caught one bonefish and 14

The game plan. for LeBoeuf
and Schaffstall was no different

Keys Fishing

There's more in the


water than just fish


Pay attention
to the buoys
marking traps

Throughout most of the Keys
waters, navigation has become
quite a bit trickier, as those little
obstacles known as buoys have
begun to appear.
They are there for a reason.
It is the commercial fishermen's
traps that they are marking. It is
their livelihood and each trap
represents a substantial invest-
ment by commercial fishermen.
Please learn to navigate the
waters around these buoys, not
over them.'
Both the commercial fisher-
men and your fund for your
outboard repairman will be
grateful for it.
Knowing what you are
avoiding is always good. The
buoy is attached to the trap on
the bottom by black Polly rope,
which is usually somewhat
longer than the depth of the
water that it is in.'
This causes the rope to hang
for some distance on the surface
for the first few weeks the trap
is in the water until the ropes
get covered with growth and
soak up enough to sink below
the buoy. This will cause an
area up current of the buoy
where you don't want to travel.
When you leave your dock
or channel, check the direction
of the current as well as the
effect of the.wind. This is best
done at the first trap buoy you
see. You can then tell which
side of the buoy you should be
able to pass safely. It's a good.
idea, especially in the bay with
its many changes of current
- directions, to check every cou-
ple of miles to ensure your trip
will be uneventful. (Note: The
fishing trips when you forget
the travel are the most enjoy-
able. In. other words, you didn't
hit anything.)
At night; transgressing the
waters becoines even a greater
challenge'. A'good spotlight is
almost a must to avoid the
buoys, not' to mention a good
idea anytime of year. Right
now, you have a lot of boats out
there that haven't been used in a
long time and there are quite a


few with-
out any
lights at
all. They
are much
more dan-

St h a n
buoys.
Going a
little slow-
Ser than full
throttle is
always a
Dave Navarro good idea
when you
are not that familiar with the
area you're in. It is better to get
there a little later than not at all.
Now, there are a few divers
that think the lobstermen have
put these beautiful rectangular
boxes on the sea bottom to cor-
ral lobsters just for them. They
shall remain nameless (until we
read about them in the Sheriff's
Office arrest Log or the -paper
- or maybe the obituaries,
depending on who caught
-them).
Be it known that you do not
touch their traps, period. They
are there so he can feed his fam-
ily and pay his bills. This is his


office, so if we all respect that,
everyone will have a great time
this lobster season.
Now that you've learned to
get by the buoys, here's how to
utilize them to gather informa-
tion .you need when bottom
fishing in both the bay and the
reef areas.
They will tell you by looking
at them just which direction the
current is moving and how fast.
They give you a reference point
as to the location of a spot you
may have marked with fish on
the reef as well as a good spot in
the bay. It can tell you by using
it as a reference point as to how
far up current from the location
you have marked, by direction
of current and speed, to anchor
to best fish the exact location
you have found.
There are always two sides
to anything, so be careful of hit-
ting them but know how to uti-
lize the advantages they give
you, and you will find that it is
not so bad after all.

three years with Chuck and he
had me constantly on fish. He
is a very relaxed captain and we
are both very proud of the vic-
tory."
First runner-up among the
young adults was Josh Davis
from Islamorada, fishing with
Capt. Chris Jones. He landed
two bonefish and three redfish
(1,700 points).
Finishing as the fly-division
winner, fishing with Capt. Bob
Branham from Miami, was 17-
year-old Paul Fabayrac from
Palm Beach Gardens, who
caught and released four bone-
fish on fly three over the 20-
inch minimum, an outstanding
achievement for anyone..
Totals for the tournament
were impressive..
--There were 115 Tedfisl and-
b onefish over the 20-inch


minimum caught and released
by 32 anglers, 16 in the junior
division (ages 9 to 17) and .16
in young adult (18 to 29).
"Given the cloudiness, the
algae bloom in the back, the
high water and not finding tail-
ing bonefish, the catches were
pretty phenomenal," Trice said.
Entry fee for the RedGhost
was kept at a modest $75
thanks to sponsors and the
organizer,, the Islamorada
Fishing and Conservation
Trust.
That nonprofit group's mis-
sion is to develop future stew-
ards for our marine resources
through education and fishing
tournaments.
Trice says the trust has given
out $100,000 to high-school
seniors for scholarships who
major in marine biology as well
as hundreds- of free fishing rods.
