Sewer figures get specific


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
will hear what's likely to be a final
presentation from staff tonight
detailing various system develop-
ment charge methodologies for
the city's proposed sewer project.
The meeting, to be held at 6
p.m. at the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office airplane hangar,
comes less than a week before
council's final opportunity to
approve a resolution awarding a
$29 million contract to Globetec
Construction for construction of
areas four and six of the project.
The bid with Globetec expires
Aug. 14, the date of the next City
Council meeting.
But the resolution is on the
agenda for tonight and Vice
Mayor Marilyn Tempest said she
expects it will be voted on this
evening.
"I think it's time to vote up or
down on the resolution and move
forward," Tempest said. "It looks
like we have some options that
could work for us as long as the
state steps us, we just have to
pick which one is most fair."
Staff has prepared figures for
four different methodologies:
split charge, combined (equiva-
lent dwelling unit) and a combi-
nation of each with a just-tax-
able-value-based assessment.
Each of these "hybrid" meth-


ods was formulated with taxable
value being equal to a 30 percent
component of the assessment.
City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco said both the combined
and split-charge methods are
"bulletproof" in terms of being
legally defensible, which may not
be the case for the split-charge
combination methodology.
"The split charge with the 30
percent just-value component is a
little more subject to scrutiny," he
said. "However, our consultants
have advised us if we don't exceed
30 percent we should be OK."
All methodology figures were
calculated assuming 40 percent
grant funding, as well as an addi-
tional 10, 15 or 20 percent contri-
bution toward projects costs from
the city.
Should council elect to con-
tribute 20 percent of the costs
from capital infrastructure funds,
it would mean committing
$850,341 of an available $1.11
million annually for 20 years.
That would leave only about
$250,000 to dedicate toward
other projects.
The infrastructure funds come
in the form of a discretionary
sales surtax in place through
2018. Rosasco said he would
caution council that it might be
best to fund at a lower percentage
so the city could come up with


the money in the event the tax is
not renewed through legislation.
According to split-charge
numbers assuming a 20 percent
contribution from the city, a sin-
gle-family homeowner would
pay a $4,737 assessment, while a
single-family condominium
owner in a 20-unit complex
would pay $3,819.
Both single-family-home and
condo owners would pay $4,351
according to the combined
methodology.
According to the split-charge
methodology with the just-value
component, residents owning
more valuable homes would pay
a higher assessment: $4,362 for a
$350,000 home, $5,213 for an
$850,000 home, and $7,798 for a
$1.5 million home.
For condos under the same
methodology, the cost would be
$3,719 for a $350,000 condo in a
20-unit complex, $5,213 for an
$850,000 condo, and $6,408 for a
$1.25 million condo.
Combined methodology with
just value component numbers
figures for homeowners: $4,091
for a $350,000 home, $5,585 for
an $850,000 home, and $7,527
for a $1.5 million home.
For condos under this method-
ology: $4,091 for a $350,000
condo, $5,585 for an $850,000
condo, and $6,780 for a $1.25
million condo.

'Something like this undermines [residents'] confidence'


DIRECTOR / From 1

retired in November.
Controversy erupted the past
week when word spread that the
director position, now held by
Irene Toner, was being advertised
in-house at the county.
A job posted in-house at the
county can be applied for only by
current Monroe County employ-
ees.
It's been widely rumored that
Marathon City Manager Mike
Puto, whose job status with the
city has been in question for
some time due to job perform-
ance concerns, is interested in the
position. Puto has an- extensive
emergency management back-
ground, including being a certi-
fied emergency manager.
But Willi says that was never
going to happen and that the job
descriptions within the depart-
ment are only being realigned.
What was the senior director
position held by Wagner will now
have the description of director,
and the director position will
become deputy director.
"We used to have a gentleman
[Wagner] given a title that really
doesn't fit the model we use in
the rest of the county," Willi said,
referring to his senior director
slot.
Willi said because their


Detectives with the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office are
investigating a series of auto bur-
glaries reported in Key Haven in
the Lower Keys over the week-
end.
Valuables taken include global
positioning systems, DVDs,
CDs, cash, credit cards, purses
and wallets. The burglaries took
place on Birchwood Drive,
Coconut Drive, Beechwood
Drive, Driftwood Drive and
Evergreen Lane.
Good advice: Lock your car

descriptions are changing, the
county officially considers them
new jobs with new titles. He said
he was trying to be consistent
with county guidelines by posting
Toner's job in-house.
Willi said he has "taken a lot
of criticism" for not posting a job
before. making a promotion in
similar situations, such as direc-
tor of community services.
"Irene is probably the only
person in the county that can do
this job. I don't make the policy, I
have to abide by it," he said. "Our
two minority commissioners
[Sylvia Murphy and George
Neugent] are trying to find any
fault with what the county does....
There's no conspiracy here. I told
[Toner] what we're doing and
she's fine with it."
Willi said he has been frustrat-
ed with what he calls certain
commissioners' lack of under-
standing regarding the hire and
suggested "they should pull out
some of these policies and refresh
themselves on them."
Neugent said previously that
several employees have contact-
ed him complaining about the
hire. One referred to it as "a slap
in the face" considering the budg-
et constraints and layoffs the
county is enduring in other areas.
Toner says the situation has
been blown out of proportion and
is "extremely unpleasant." She


The Florida Department of
Transportation has scheduled a
public meeting for 5:30 to 7:30
p.m. Aug. 16 in Marathon to dis-
cuss plans to widen U.S. 1 south
of Kyle Avenue on Grassy Key
to north of Dorsett Drive.
The session is at the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office hangar
at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
DOT proposes to widen the
road to accommodate a two-way
left-turn, lane to improve traffic
flow and increase safety.
Cost of the project, slated to
run from Dec. 21, 2008, to Jan.
24, 2010, is $7.2 million, which
includes milling and resurfacing,

added any insinuation she might
leave her post mid-hurricane sea-

"I'm a professional, I would
not do such a thing," Toner said.
"Emergency Management is very
visible because we're dealing
with hurricanes all the time and
any controversy relative to it and
the staff, if it is not factual, is not

Toner said she's spoken with

said.
Neugent said Puto "insinuated

City's exempt
from mandate
on tax relief
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Key Colony Beach has set a
proposed budget for fiscal year
2007-08 that is expected to meet
rollback for the sixth time in the
last seven years.
The city's millage rate is pro-
posed to be 1.3092, or $1.3092 per
$1,000 of assessed property value.
The current millage is 1.2392.
Key Colony's gross taxable
land value is $878,098,392.
The proposed budget for next
year is $3,144,080, which
includes a one-time Community
Development Block Grant of
$514,000 for sewer expenses.
SThe current general fund is
estimated, when the fiscal year
closes Sept. 30, $2,305,565.
Key Colony was not obligated
to meet a state-mandated reduc-
tion in property tax assessments,


for which cuts will range from 3
to 9 percent statewide.
"The Legislature looked at all
the cities and counties who have
been financially responsible since
2001 and they adopted their law
based on that," Key Colony
Beach Mayor Clyde Burnett said.
"They recognized the cities who
showed good financial manage-
ment, accountability and restraint
during those years and in a way
rewarded those who showed that
restraint."
Bumett said the one year Key
Colony did go over rollback (the
tax rate needed to collect the
same amount of revenue in the
next fiscal year as the current
one) the past six years, 2005-06,
it was because the city had done
"some extraordinary things for
our employees to help them with
workforce housing and health
insurance."
"It was really aimed at taking
care of our employees to retain
and attract new ones," he said.
Each employee that year


received a $2,000 mid-year
increase in pay across the board.
The city was 7 percent over roll-
back that year.
Next year's proposed budget
is largely consistent with the cur-
rent year's figures.
The most significant change in
revenue is expected to come from
building permits, for which Key
Colony is expected to collect
$275,000 for the current year.
Next year's budget is estimated at
just $120,000.
"We had some large homes
built and a lot of remodeling,"
Burnett said. "Two big condo
complex renovations figured into-
those costs."
Law enforcement, as well as
fire and emergency medical serv-
ice provided through the city of
Marathon, make up the most sig-
nificant portion of expenses on
the proposed budget.
Law enforcement salaries will
increase roughly $20,000 next
year to $322,410 for the six-per-
son staff. Fire and EMS service to
the city will cost a combined
$315,000.

federal agency's forecasters like-
ly would consider many of the
same factors assessed by the
Colorado State team.
"I don't particularly care for
the exact-number forecasts, but
we can look at what [the CSU
forecasters] think is going right,"
Rizzo said.
Primarily, those factors
include lower ocean temperatures
and more Sahara dust.
"The water temperatures in
the Atlantic are not as warm as
people were thinking they would
be," Rizzo said. "In fact, they're
pretty close to normal. That's the
big one right there."
Warmer water temperatures
foster the development of tropical
storms and fuel their develop-
ment into hurricanes.
Large quantities of dust have
been blowing off the West
African desert, Rizzo said.
"That creates a more stable air
mass over the tropical Atlantic
area," he said. "It's more difficult
for thunderstorms to grow and
maintain themselves in those
conditions."
"When you put those things
together. we T aypnot see the kind
of busy( aetivityi Dr., Gray was


thinking of in the spring."
However, other atmospheric
factors may yet foster an above-
average season.
Gray's team believes one
major hurricane will form in
August, and two in September.
"We're just now entering the
busy time of hurricane season,"
Rizzo said. "This is the time
we normally see more [storm]
activity."
In late May, NOAA's scien-
tists at the Prediction Center
issued a season forecast for seven
to 10 hurricanes, with three to
five possibly growing into major
hurricanes.
In 2006, forecasts for an
active hurricane season were
upended when an El Nino weath-
er pattern developed, rapidly and
unexpectedly. That helped dis-
rupt hurricane formation.
An average Atlantic hurricane
season brings 11 named storms,
with six becoming hurricanes,
including two major hurricanes.
Three named storms have
developed so far in the Atlantic
hurricane season that started June
1. None turned into hurricanes.

Revenue shortfalls put

heat on legislature

With the heat index rising, it may prove to be an omen for
Florida lawmakers as they gather in Tallahassee next month to
deal with a $1 billion shortfall in state revenue.
The state's economy is far worse off than economists forecast
back in the spring when the Legislature got its first look at rev-
enue projections.
As most folks already know, Florida relies heavily on sales
taxes to fund state government.
When tourism is down, when people stop buying and selling
real estate, and when they delay new car purchases, Florida's
economy takes a bit hit.
All those things have happened this year.
Now the Legislature, which gained big headlines with its prop-
erty tax cutting juggernaut in the spring, finds a very rough road
ahead.
It's unclear where the cuts will come, but most folks who have
been watching believe school funding is the biggest sector to be
targeted.
School districts were exempted from this year's property tax
rollback, unlike municipal and county budgets and most special
taxing districts.
Don't expect that hall pass to last.
Florida is not alone in this dilemma, as noted by the St. Pete
Times' Alex Leary, who reported this week from the National
Conference of State Legislatures, which met in Boston.
He quotes Pennsylvania Rep. David Steil on Florida's full-
court press to cut property taxes, noting that Pennsylvania has
been trying to swap lower property taxes for higher sales taxes
for years, to no avail.
"Florida's in for a long, rough ride," Steil told Leary.
And given the current climate forecasts, we expect it will be a
hot one, as well.

Hey, chill out!

They don't call this time of year the dog days of summer for
nothing.
But did you ever wonder how August heat got the moniker
"dog days."
Not from panting like you know what, but rather, it comes
from the night sky.
Sirius, known as the dog star, rises with the sun during the
summer months. Some say that's where early man, studying the
skies for hints about the weather, first made the connection,
believing that heat from Sirius was added to the sun's own fiery
heat, causing hotter days in late July and early August.
Unlike dogs, however, we can't cool off by panting. So we
have the start of lobster season and frequent immersion in the
ocean as our favored prescription for coolin' off in the Keys.

Toy recall a reminder to watch for lead


EDITOR:
In light of the recent massive toy recall of
Fisher-Price toys for lead, it is important to under-
stand the dangers surrounding lead exposure.
Lead is especially harmful to young children as
their bodies are still developing. A young child's
exposure to lead can cause learning and behavioral
problems, and possibly damage their brains, kid-
neys or other organs.
Lead can enter the body by breathing dust or
fumes or swallowing something containing lead.
Lead dust is the most common way people are
exposed, and may not be visible to the naked eye.
Other sources are lead in older pipes or solder,
therefore contaminating water, imported food con-
tainers, inexpensive (often imported) metal jewel-
ry, some hobbies such as glazes for pottery, or fish
sinkers and paint made prior to 1978.
If a parent works in certain industries such as
construction/renovation, painting or auto repair,
they may be exposed to lead and should use cau-


tion when entering the home; showering and
changing to fresh clothing before entering the
house is ideal. Other steps to reduce lead in our
lives is to damp mop floors often, wash hands and
wash children's toys frequently, especially teething
toys.
Exposure to lead can be determined by a blood
test. All children up to age 6 should be screened.
For some children who show positive for lead, a
simple change in diet and more frequent hand-
washing are all that are needed. Other children
with very high blood-lead levels may need drugs
that help the body get rid of the lead. Your doctor
will decide what your child needs. But treatment is
not enough. The source of the lead will have to be
found, and that problem corrected.
The Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition has a
free brochure titled "Lead Poisoning Prevention
and Awareness." For a copy, call us at 293-8424.

Property rights are slipping away


EDITOR:
As we watch our county commissioners work
through the multitude of decisions, many property
owners are getting concerned with the directions
of a few of the commissioners. They are voting to
reduce our property rights.
We are all aware the Keys have been going
through many changes that include development.
The redevelopment of trailer parks is the most
controversial.
Typical of any bureaucracy, some of our com-
missioners discuss new ways to restrict the rights
of property owners. Talk of moratoriums, stopping
a sale or development should alarm any property
owner, no matter the size or type of the property.
A property owner should have the right to do
anything with his or her property as long as it
meets all local codes and restrictions.
Also, some of our commissioners place too
much importance on individual opinions versus
what is written in law. People's opinion about size,
design, height, landscaping, color, etc., should not
influence the County Commission's decision to
approve or disapprove a project.
If no aspect of the project conflicts with local
ordinances or codes, then the project should be
approved.
If individuals do not like the appearance of

projects, lobby to change the codes. Do not waste
others' time and money.
We need to change the thinking of government
from limitations to incentives. How can our gov-
ernment keep owners from changing property
usage?
As a region, we are concerned with the loss of
working waterfront and affordable housing.
Monroe County should give these property owners
incentives to stay in their current business, i.e., tax
breaks, reduced restrictions, improvement loans,
etc.
No one here wants the Keys to look like Miami
or other high-rise communities. But we all need to
be careful of the hidden agendas. Groups blocking
certain types of projects hide behind the thin veil
of saving affordable housing.
Their real motivation should be obvious: No
development of any kind.
When we allow our property rights to be con-
trolled by others, then others could dictate other
facets of our businesses.

Key Largo Chamber of Commerce

Heat's a killer for furry friends


EDITOR:
A recent local tragedy prompts me
to remind people to be extra careful
with their animals in hot weather.
A dog had to be euthanized after it
became comatose from heat stroke.
The poor animal was on a lead and
was forced to run after a bicycle rid-
den by her caretaker. By the time the
dog reached a veterinarian, it was too
late.
Please remember that dogs and
cats pant rather than perspire and
cannot cool themselves as efficiently
as humans. Just because your dog is
able to keep up with you as you jog
or bicycle does not mean it is not
overheating. Rapid panting is a sign
to stop. If you suspect your pet is
overheated, cool it with a hose, pro-
vide water and contact a veterinarian
immediately.
Many people are also under the


impression that it is safe to leave a
dog in a car if the windows are
cracked open. Again, remember that
the temperature in a parked car can
shoot up in minutes and become a
death trap for animals.
Dogs on chains live miserable
lives but summertime is especially
cruel for them. Shade that is avail-
able in the morning may disappear as
the sun shifts and an animal on a
chain cannot escape to a cooler
place. Please remember to always
provide your pet with shelter and
water.
If you see an animal in distress
from any of the above conditions,
please call your local animal shelter
or the Sheriff's Office. Calls can be
anonymous and they may save a life.

Follow this volunteer's lead


EDITOR:
I know there are a lot of people in
our area who do many things for our
community, and then there are others
who do little or nothing. I realize that
there are many and varied reasons
why people don't get involved, but
that's not what's important here.
What is important is that the peo-
ple who do so much, especially
behind the scenes at these various
charitable functions, never seem to
get the notoriety they so richly
deserve. They just quietly go about
their business of making a difference
in the lives of so many, never asking
for thanks or recognition. It's just the
satisfaction of making a difference in
someone's life that is enough for
them. I know of such an individual
and believe she should be recog-
nized.
Her name is Debbie Morelli. I've
known Debbie for many years and,
until recently, I had no idea how
much she is involved in our commu-
nity. She doesn't talk about it. She
just does it.
She is vice president and Middle
Keys market manager at TIB of the
Keys; on the board of directors of the
Grace Jones Day Care Center; secre-
tary/treasurer of the Marathon
Women of the Moose; a member of
Zonta; a member of the Greater
Marathon Chamber of Commerce; a
member of Leadership Monroe
County; a member of the Marathon
Elks Lodge; the organizer of a Bahia
Beach cleanup for the Women of the
Moose; is involved with Habitat for
Humanity, the Seven Mile Bridge
Run, Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe
and the Relay for Life; and has
worked behind the scenes at many


other fundraisers and benefits.
I fully realize there are a few oth-
ers out there that do just as much if
not more than Debbie, but I realize
also that there are many who do
much less or nothing at all. I am in
the "much less" category, but I do
plan to become more involved in my
community because of people like
her, and I would hope others would
too.
We all owe a debt of gratitude to
Debbie Morelli and all the others
who have done so much for so many.
Thank you one and all.

Swimming is vital
EDITOR:
As a father of a toddler and with a
new baby just around the comer,
summertime brings concerns of
water-related accidents. This is some-
thing that is not discussed enough.
We live on an island, for God's sake.
I have asked Marathon city
staffers about swim training classes
for kids but they do not offer any-
thing. I think they could find in the
budget enough money to pay a certi-
fied instructor to teach a class a cou-
ple of times a month, or at least set
up a program and the parents can pay
per lesson. I am sure if asked, one of
our big developers would lend the
use of their pools for the lessons.
I am trying to teach my son but
some professional help would be
great. There are way too many kids
in this town (who) cannot swim. It's
scary.

If Florida Bay waters close to the Keys see increased use, it's obvious Monroe
County will have the need for Marine Resources, the writer says.

Park plan's changes tied to Marine Resources


EDITOR:
There are two decisions that have recently
risen that will have significant impact on the
adjacent waters of the Florida Keys.
The first of these is a decision already
made. It is to dissolve the Monroe County
Marine Resources Department by our county
government. This is an unwise decision by
itself, but has greater impact when influ-
enced by the second decision.
Everglades National Park is in the process
of revising its general management plan.
Four alternatives have been put forth for
public comment. All but Alternative A will
require that those of us who use Florida Bay
change their navigation and fishing methods.
Alternatives C and D will demand radical
change. Even Alternative E proposed by
our own well-informed citizens committee
- will require that we become more respon-
sive to new regulations and boater education.
I support Alternative E and hope it is the
choice of the decision makers when the
park's general management plan is finalized.
One of the' unintended consequences of


Everglades National Park's general manage-
ment plan revision and the county's decision
to abolish Marine Resources will be the
increased impact on our local waters.
Whichever alternative is chosen, as fishing
and boating in the park begin to require more
adherence to new navigational regulations
and acceptance of an educational process,
there are those who will choose not to sub-
ject themselves to the requirements. They
will, instead, seek other shallow-water areas
to fish.
The most convenient of these are the
adjacent waters of the Florida Keys the
very waters our county goverance has cho-
sen to leave without the oversight of Marine
Resources. At a time when the need for the
department's stewardship is greater than
ever, it will not exist.
I encourage all Keys citizens to contact
the county commissioners and county admin-
istrator to demand that Marine Resources be
reinstated.
Councilman Don Achenberg

Firehouse burns up construction money


EDITOR:
Every time I pass by the outrageously
overpriced Marathon firehouse under con-
struction, my blood pressure spikes. We will
all be paying the price for this scam for a
very long time to come:
Other cities have built new three-bay fire-
houses for a little over $1 million each. Each
meets or beats Marathon's for function,
beauty and class. Hilton Head, where costs
are higher than here, built two. Its costs
include the contractor profit and the cost of
the land.
By contrast, Marathon's firehouse is
cheap tilt-wall construction built on land the
county owns for $6.1 million-plus. This
doesn't even consider that the old concrete-
block-construction firehouse did not need to


be tom down.
Remember how fast it disappeared? The
only real damage was to the trailer beside the
firehouse. We've been had.
Consider the next scam looming, the
sewer project. The grab of this enormous
project from the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority speaks volumes. Do we want the
city to run the sewer project? I don't.
It is time to get rid of the city government
before we are taxed out of our homes for the
benefit of the people with special interests -
theirs. If you would like information about
the active movement to dissolve the city of
Marathon, you may contact me at unincorpo

A wave of Memorial Day

"The [park] -marina and
ramp were particularly chaotic
with flagrant violations of park
rules and'widespread disorder-

staff report sent to the
Islamorada Village Council
this week.
"There was widespread

"During this period, there
existed a very real threat to
health, safety and even poten-
tial loss of life...," it says.
"Staff- control of, the visitors
was extremely difficult to
maintain and even lost at times
due to the sheer numbers and a
pervasive party atmosphere
throughout the park."
Founders Park has one of a
handful of boat ramps still
open-to the public and one
that offers a short run to the
popular anchoring spot at the
Sandbar in Whale Harbor.
"Staff estimates 90 percent

Gunman robs Key Largo
Circle K Saturday

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives seek the pub-
lic's help-in finding a man who
robbed at gunpoint a Key Largo
convenience store Saturday
night.
The robbery took place at the
Circle K at mile marker 102 at
9:45 p.m. It was caught on video-
tape.
Deputies say a man entered
the store and walked around


inside as if shopping. He placed
some items on the counter and,
when one of the clerks began
ringing up the. items, the man
said he'd left his wallet in his car
and left the store. He returned a
short time later carrying a gun
and demanded money, which the
clerk handed over.
The suspect is described as a
bald white man with a goatee-
type beard between 5-foot-4 and
5-foot-6 and % ith a 'sock\ build.
He may ha\e a tatioo just above

the incident.
Ely is the 14th fatality on
Keys roads this year.
In a separate accident, a Key
West woman reportedly blacked
out behind the wheel, causing a
collision near mile marker 7
Sunday afternoon.
According to the Highway
Patrol, 35-year-old Kina
Kinnune of Key West was driv-
ing a 2007 Toyota south on U.S.
1 around 1:51 p.m., lost con-
sciousness, went across the
median into the north lanes of
traffic and struck the front of a
2005 Chevrolet driven by
Yovans Hernandez, 32, of
Hialeah.
Passengers in Hernandez's
car included 25-year-old
Anayansy Ramos, 4-year-old
Mario Hernandez and 59-year-
old Feliz Gimenez.
Both northbound lanes were
closed during the investigation.
Everyone involved in the col-
lision, except for Yovans
Hernandez, was taken to Lower
Keys Medical Center with
minor injuries.
The report states that Trooper
Michael Leo, crash investigator,
recommended a re-examination
of Kinnune's driver's license
because of an existing medical
condition.

Keys cities jump on green-wagon


Officials urge
businesses to
check buildings
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson's been working to
earn his new title of the Jolly
Green Mayor a nickname that
comes with a resolution spon-
sored by McPherson to include
Key West in the Cities for
Climate Protection Campaign, as
well as a recycling committee
he's helped establish.
The commission did not vote
on McPherson's resolution before
press time Tuesday, but all offi-
cials interviewed said they were
in favor.
McPherson's work is only the
tip of the enviro iceberg when
taking into account various Keys


efforts to adopt eco-friendly ini-
tiatives.
Florida Keys Green Living
and Energy Education recently
created the Keys Sustain-Ability
Project, and at its first meeting
May 24, five city government
representatives pledged to take
action and increase conservation.
"There is tremendous opportu-
nity for energy conservation
measures," said Jody Smith
Williams, GLEE Steering
Committee member.
On the state level, Gov.
Charlie Crist signed Florida's
first energy package to reduce
greenhouse gases with California
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at a
mid-July Florida Climate Change
Summit in Miami.
The package intends to
enforce stricter vehicle emissions
standards, thus reducing green-
house gases by 20 percent by


2012, and then 40 percent by
2025.
Key West, Marathon and
Monroe County have already
signed off on the U.S. Conference
of Mayor's Climate Protection
Agreement.
But Key West turned some-
what of a deaf ear to comments
from environmental group Last
Stand and other residents over the
possibility of the city purchasing
hybrid cars for city departments.
Key West commissioners dis-
missed the notion, calling it too
costly, and approved standard
replacement vehicles for those
damaged by Hurricane Wilma for
the Police Department, Code
Enforcement, Fire -Department,
Building Department and Public
Works.
"All governmental entities are
faced with balancing their desire
to go green, and their fiscal
responsibility it's a real bal-
ancing act," Keys Energy Service


Chief Executive Officer Lynne
Tejeda said.
The mayor also started a
"green committee" of- active
community members to increase
the city's recycling and explore
other fuel options like biodiesel
or E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15
percent gasoline).
Key West currently recycles 6
percent of its garbage,
McPherson said. He would like to
see that number rise to 10 percent
by next year.
McPherson wants the city to
adhere to the five milestones of
the International Council for
Local Environmental Initiatives'
Climate Protection Campaign,
which would cost the city $600 in
membership fees, and possibly
more if it hires someone for the
project. Those milestones would
include steps like inventory taken
for all greenhouse gases released,
and developing a reduction plan.
Conservation can be accom-


polished with simple measures like
swapping out street lights and
city building bulbs for more ener-
gy efficient ones like light emit-
ting diode (LED). According to
findings from the Sierra Club,
U.S. cities have reported a com-
bined total of $10.4 million in
annual savings from simply
switching to LED bulbs.
"One of the biggest things that
governmental can do is look
specifically at the lighting, com-
pact fluorescents and tubular flu-
orescents," Tejeda said.
Smith said she would like to
see city buildings take it easy on
their air conditioning.
"I'm wrapped up in my
sweaters all summer long," she
said.
Tejeda agreed, suggesting that
businesses check to see if any
cold air is seeping out of their
windows and keep their thermo-
stats set at 78 degrees, with a ceil-
ing fan on to cool the air.

Realty staff works for licks
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.comr


A group of local volunteers
from .a Key Largo realty office
has paired more than 25 stray ani-
mals with new homes in Monroe
County this year.
Now the group's success
inspired its members to form a non-
profit animal rescue organization.
Marr-Velous Pet Rescues,
which provides individual foster
homes for strays awaiting adop-
tion, operates out of the Marr
Properties Building in Key
Largo.
The idea for the group was
conceived after a 2004 camping
trip in Central Florida resulted in
a dog rescue, group founder Joy
Martin said.
"There was a dog in the camp-
ground with an atrophied back
and no collar. We called the [park]
ranger, who told us if we took the
dog, we'd be doing it a favor
because they were just going to
take it to the shelter. We brought
this yellow lab back to.Key Largo,
put him in the middle of our real
estate ad and a family saw it and
adopted him," Martin said.
Since that time, she said, she
has enlisted the help of col-
leagues and other volunteers, and
used real estate advertisements
and word of mouth to help find
homes for stray animals.
In addition to receiving calls
from people who have found
abandoned animals or can no
longer care for pets, Martin said
she comes across a high number
of strays at her Redland barn,
which is near an old animal shel-
ter. She believes people still
abandon animals near the build-
ing, which has been closed for
several years.
While riding horses there
Easter Sunday, Martin and her
husband stumbled upon eight pup-
pies abandoned without water in a
large palm-tree planter. The dogs
motivated the volunteer group to
apply for official status as a non-
profit organization, she said.
"My husband was riding his
horse and yelled out, 'there's
puppies in there,'" Martin said. "I
thought he was kidding because
we always seem" to find dogs. It
was heartbreaking."
Though seven of the eight pup-
pies were in stable condition after
initial veterinary care, one puppy,
dubbed Molly by volunteers,
required emergency surgery.

Pet Rescues.


volunteers paid for the majority
of food and health care for the
strays, but Molly's costly surgery
led them to seek another solution.
Marr employees e-mailed con-
tacts throughout the community
and within 48 hours raised the
money necessary for the dog's
surgery, Martin said.
"After we saw the support for
the Molly Fund, we realized we
needed to formalize this and take
it to the next level," Martin said.
Comprised of five board
members, most of whom are
Marr employees, Marr-Velous
Pet Adoptions has received the
corporate paperwork required to
become a nonprofit, and is now
waiting for its 501(c)3 status to
be finalized, Martin said.
The group also helps the Miami-
Dade Anirpal Shelter by occasion-
ally taking animals from the over-
crowded facility, Martin said.
"We do strongly encourage
people to get dogs from the shel-
ter and the Humane Society,"
Martin said. "But we are trying to
take some of the burden off of
them. The shelter up there gets up
to 100 dogs a day."


According to Martin, one of
their most successful adoptions
was that of Honey, a 6-month-old
otterhound rescued from the
Miami-Dade shelter who is now
being trained as a therapy dog at
Island Dolphin Care in Key Largo.
Martin said she was thrilled
with the outcome of Honey's sit-
uation, and hopes to repeat the
experience with future rescues.
"If we can somehow in the
future work a rescue dog into a
therapy dog, it's a win-win,"
Martin said.
To continue helping strays,
Martin said Marr-Velous Pet
Rescues looks to the community
for support.
"What we really need is peo-
ple who will be willing to foster
an animal on a temporary basis,"
she said. "Also, if people have
leftover pet supplies, we'll take
them. We loan them out to our
foster homes."
Those interested in making
donations to Marr-Velous pets, or
fostering or adopting an animal,
can contact board members
Martin, Patricia Ives, Stephanie
Clark or Dawn Cale at 451-4078.

According to the Monroe

what if they happen to bite some-

dogs, but you don't know until

Dianne Alexander, a financial
consultant and animal lover
whose husband works at the
plant, said Dottie and Breezeway
must stay together.
"Shortly after they arrived at
the plant, one of them was adopt-
ed; neither of them would eat dur-
ing the separation, and she was
finally brought back to be with
her 'sister.'"
She said that having dogs at
the plant is a tradition dating to
World War II. At least one resi-
dent dog is buried there: Lady, a
Labrador retriever. And a brass
plaque commemorates K2, a dog
that showed up after Hurricane
Andrew, hunkered down in a
building called K2, and lived
about seven years, Tam said.
Friday, Dottie and Breezeway
went home with Dee Chess from
Friends Forever Rescue.
"This week we'll take them to
the vet to make sure" they're
healthy, she said. "They are total-
ly housebroken, nondestructive
and they love it inside."
Anyone interested in adopting
the dogs can call Chess at (786)

Diver struck by boat,
escapes serious injury

A LaBelle man narrowly
escaped death Sunday afternoon
after being struck by a boat, accord-
ing to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
According to Officer Bobby
Dube, Robert Hollingsworth, 50,
was diving just north of the
Seven Mile Bridge near Friend
Key when he surfaced in front of
a Sail Cat motoring through.


The catamaran crew told
authorities they were cruising
along about 3:30 p.m. and saw
the diver surface right in front of
them. They heard a thump and
saw blood in the water, then
found the injured diver, brought
him aboard and rendered aid.
The vessel Hollingsworth was
diving from was nearly 250 yards
away from where he surfaced;
that vessel took him ashore and
he was taken to Fishermen's
Hospital in Marathon, where he
was treated for four head cuts,


likely caused by the catamaran's
two 10-horsepower engines, and
released.
Dube said had the victim's
wounds been any deeper,
Hollingsworth may have become
another statistic.
"It's amazing how -some peo-
ple can escape death by a mere
fraction of an inch," he said.
Florida law states that divers
and snorkelers must stay within
100 yards of their dive flag, which
must be visible from the entire cir-
cumference of the vessel.

Fire chief's


DUI trial set


Callahan goes
to court Sept. 17
Keynoter Staff

Monroe County's acting fire
chief on Thursday had his trial on
a drunk-driving charge set for
Sept. 17 in front of County Court
Judge Wayne Miller.
James Callahan was sched-
uled to stand trial this coming
Monday but his attorney had it
delayed.
Callahan, 61, was arrested
March 3 after a traffic stop in
Key West.
According to the arrest report,
city Police Officer David
Swanson said Callahan "failed to
maintain his lane as he drove [his
truck] into the oncoming traffic
lane, causing vehicles traveling
northbound on Palm [Avenue] to
slam on their brakes and veer'
from the road in order to avoid a
collision.'
Swanson reported a strong
odor of alcohol and noted that
Callahan's speech was slurred.
He also said Callahan stumbled
when he got out of the truck.
Callahan failed field sobriety
tests, according to the report. He


refused to take a breath test.
Callahan remained in his job
because his arrest happened on
his personal time and in his per-
sonal vehicle, county officials
said at the time.
Callahan's been acting chief
since August 2006, when then-
Chief Clark Martin went on leave
because of health issues. Martin
has since resigned.

LaTorre case
The case of former Monroe
County Social Services Director
Louis LaTorre, charged with
drunk driving-causing serious
bodily injury and drunk driving-
causing damage to person or
property, remains pending.
LaTorre, arrested April 15,
2006, following a head-on crash
on Big Coppitt Key in which
Nadezda Bowman of Big Coppitt
Key was seriously injured, is free
on $50,000 bond.
DUI-bodily injury is a third-
degree felony that carries a max-
imum penalty of five years in
prison.
LaTorre, 60, retired shortly
after the crash.

Canned green beans
may cause botulism

U. S. health officials are warn-
ing consumers not to eat certain
brands of French-cut green beans
in 14.5-ounce cans manufactured
by Lakeside Foods Inc. of
Manitowoc, Wis., because the
product may not have been
processed adequately to elimi-
nate the potential for botulism.
The canned green beans may
cause botulism if consumed but
as of Aug. 1, the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration had not
received reports of illnesses relat-
ed to the product.
The affected beans are sold
under following labels:
Albertson's, Happy Harvest, Best
Choice, Food Club, Bogopa,
Valu Time, Hill Country Fare,
HEB, Laura Lynn, Kroger, No
Name, North Pride, Shop N.


Save, Shoppers Valu, Schnucks,
Cub Foods, Dierbergs, Flavorite,
IGA, Best Choice and Thrifty
Maid.
The botulism toxin is very
potent, and botulism is a life-
threatening illness.. Symptoms
can begin from six hours to two
weeks after eating food that con-
tains the toxin and may include
double or blurred vision, droop-
ing eyelids, slurred speech, diffi-
culty swallowing, dry mouth and
muscle weakness that moves pro-
gressively down the body.
The specific codes (top line of
can code) involved are EAA5247,

Restaurant gets Beard


Foundation came
to Keys to find
best restaurant
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

The James Beard Foundation
has chosen Key West restaurant
Nine One Five to host a wine
dinner on Aug. 16 at the famed
Beard House in Greenwich
Village in New York City.
Stuart Kemp, Nine One
Five's owner and wine director,
said he and chef Chris Otten will
travel to New York to prepare


and present the dinner, "Summer
Seafood, Key West Style," to 85
of the city's most discriminating
diners. Tickets for the dinner
ranged in price from $125 to
$155, and Kemp said he recently
learned that the event sold out
after one day.
Kemp said he and Otten were
"overwhelmed" when they
learned that the Beard
Foundation had chosen them to
host a dinner. Under normal cir-
cumstances, restaurants apply
for the opportunity to be show-
cased at the Beard House, but
that was not the case for Nine


One Five.
"We didn't apply. [The Beard
Foundation] had a short list of
restaurants in the Keys, and they
sent some people down who
went to all of them," Kemp said.
"They selected us. It's massive.
We're in esteemed company."
Other chefs preparing recent
dinners at the Beard House
include culinary stars Jacques
PEpin and Roy Yamaguchi.
The James Beard Foundation
was established in 1986 in honor
of Beard, the late cooking
teacher, consultant, and writer
often referred to as "the father of

Unclaimed property up for bid


Hulk Hogan

Associated Press

Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink has returned a Purple Heart,
rare coins and a $300,000 check
from the $1 billion worth of
unclaimed property the state is
holding, but she still hasn't
walked down the hall to give Gov.
Charlie Crist his $69.70 check.
And Crist isi't the bfnly high


profile person that's got
unclaimed property in the state's
hands. There's former Gov. Jeb
Bush, actors Wesley Snipes and
Burt Reynolds, Miami Heat star
Alonzo Mourning, Allman
Brothers Band guitarist Dickey
Betts, football Hall of Famer Joe
Namath, Florida Panthers captain
Olli Jokinen and wrestler Hulk
Hogan.
There's also the state chairmen
of both major political parties -
Republican Jim Greer and
Democrat Karen Thurman.
Tennis star Pete Sampras is owed
$15 from the Orlando


Expressway Authority. Former
New York Yankees and Mets
pitcher Dwight Gooden, who was
released from prison last fall,
never claimed a refund from a
Pinellas County court.
In all, there are 7 million
unclaimed accounts owed to 4
million Floridians. They can be
telephone company refunds,
uncashed paychecks, the contents
of safe deposit boxes that have
gone untouched, the balance of a
bank account someone forgot
about and more.

American gastronomy."
Kemp and Otten's menu for
the New York event begins with
an array of hors d'oeuvres fea-
turing Key West pink shrimp,
oysters, yellowfin tuna sashimi-
wrapped Dungeness crab, conch
chowder, and key lime-marinat-
ed scallops. The dinner with
wines for each course chosen by
Kemp includes dishes high-
lighting more local-seafood like
yellowtail snapper, clams,
grouper and Florida lobster. For
dessert, a roasted mango tartlet
with whipped cream and basil
syrup.
Nine One Five will host a dry
run of the Beard House dinner at
the restaurant, 915 Duval, begin-
ning at 7:30 tonight. Kemp said
the exact menu and wine selec-
tions chosen for the Beard House
dinner will be served that
evening at a price of $155 per
person, tax and gratuity includ-
ed. Reservations are required
and can be made by calling 296-

Barbecue
The Meteor Smokehouse,
Key West, is back in name
and in menu.
General Manager David
Pollman said the restaurant,
which spent several months
under the name Twisted Dish,
reverted back to its barbecue
roots a few weeks ago.
"We've gone back to serving
a lot of barbecue pulled pork,
ribs, wings, half-chickens,"
Pollman said. "But there are still
a few popular Twisted Dish
items like grilled mahi, fish
tacos, and shrimp salad in a pita
that are still on the menu."
Pollman said the Meteor also
serves fresh, locally caught fish,
which is typically snapper or
grouper.
The restaurant is open from
11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and from noon
to 10 p.m. Sunday. The bar,
which also serves the full restau-
rant menu, is open until mid-
night or later.
The Meteor Smokehouse is at
404 Southard St.; the phone
number is 294-5601.
A new Key West barbecue
spot is Smokin Joe's at 411
Petronia St. Owned by Key West
Ink owner Jim McAlhany and
his wife Pam, the newly opened
eatery aspires to "offer an


,affordable price for tourists and
locals alike," according to public
relations consultant Gregg
McGrady.
Smokin Joe's menu and
the restaurant's name come
from Jim McAlhany's late broth-
er Joe, whose dream was to own
a barbecue joint. His recipes are
being used to create the hickory
smoked ribs, beef, chicken, and
pork, as well as a selection of
sides including slaw, baked
beans, collards, and macaroni
and cheese.
Since finding an empty park-


ing spot in Old Town can be a
challenge, McGrady said
Smokin Joe's offers "drive-by
takeout." Customers can call in
an order and describe their vehi-
cle, and restaurant servers will
take the food out to the car.
Smokin Joe's also offers reg-
ular takeout and delivery in addi-
tion to seated dining, and is open
daily from 11 a.m. to midnight.

tion or to place an order.

Items to be auctioned


CLAIMS / From 16

"It's just stunning to me," said
Sink, who added that now that
Crist is identified, she'll plan on
giving him a check during a
Cabinet meeting.
While she's at it, she might
want to help another Cabinet
member with another potential
claim. Agriculture Commis-sion-
er Charles Bronson's parents,
both deceased, were owed money
from a mortgage company and it
can now be claimed by their
estate. And, one of his political
campaigns is owed a utility
refund.
On Saturday, Sink is oversee-
ing an auction of unclaimed items
from safe deposit boxes. Once
they've been left for three years,
banks turn them over to her
department, which tries to find
the owners or the heirs. The items
are eventually auctioned and the
cash is held in a trust furfd and can
be claimed at any time.
Among the items up for bid at
the Orlando auction are baseballs
signed by Hall of Famer Hank
Aaron and former Yankee Don
Larsen, who pitched a perfect
game in the 1956 World Series;
colonial Spanish coins; a $500
bill; diamond jewelry; and a 17-
carat natural sapphire ring.
Unclaimed cash is simply held
until it's claimed. The interest on
the $1 billion dollars in
unclaimed cash goes toward edu-
cation. The state tries to find the
owners, but sets a priority on


large accounts, which may be
why people like Crist aren't
tracked down even though Sink
knows where to find him.
Crist is owed a refund on a car
insurance policy. Crist changed
apartments in the downtown St.
Petersburg building where he
lives and the company had the
older apartment number.
"That is surprising to me,"
Crist said about his unclaimed
money. "I would think the records
would reflect my accurate
address."
He encouraged people to
check the CFO's Web site,
www.fltreasurehunt.org.
"We're all counting our dimes
and nickels these days and every
little bit helps," Crist said.
While some amounts are
small, there are some large
accounts, like a Sarasota man
who had $300,000 returned,
mostly from stocks and divi-
dends.
Thurman didn't know about at
least three unclaimed accounts in
her name until she received a
phone call Thursday afternoon.
"If it's a half million dollars,
I'm out of here," she joked.
"Absolutely, I'm going to check
these out. But more importantly, I

New learning center
could help with
kid-care shortage
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


ask,. While cries of an affordable-
sur- housing crisis sound loudly
ice from most sectors of the com-
r- munity, another problem hovers
ar- that doesn't-get nearly the
attention lack of affordable
child care in the Keys, especial-
ip is ly post-Hurricane Wilma.
th "The problem is right up
n there with housing," Wesley
the House Family Services Child
f Care Services Director Kathy
Snyder said. "There are a lot of
p for people who support the infra-
structure of Key West" who
Sin need affordable child care.
tarn After Wilma, "we lost about
quiet 188 slots, child-care seats in
%> programs."
>ung But Snyder said "things are
ire looking up."
ie in Wesley House has been
around almost 80 years, started
ize as a Methodist church and cen-
i ter for Cuban immigrants,
entl% Snyder said. Over the years, it's
e his turned into an umbrella organi-
er- zation for a myriad of family-
.' t.h related social services, includ-
he ing day care.
ergy The Early Learning
is Coalition of Miami-Dade
onN Monroe, a state agency, funds
kes a the program, which serves up to
750 Monroe County children
each month. Wesley House
Is helps families across Monroe
County pay for, and in some
ds cases softens the financial blow
of, child care by subsidizing
oms. families' child-care expenses if
eek- they meet certain income
pro- guidelines.
a That requirement mandates a
e to family of two, for example a
mother and child, cannot bring
lie in more than $19,800 a year. A
gram family of three making equal to
or less than $24,900 would
b,, have to pay only $5 a week, as
nn opposed to the typical rate that
ides can run anywhere from about
ames $80 to $200 a week.
If the main provider in that
ion. family of three receives a pay
664- increase, the family would able
to stay in the program until it
Si ,,, begin taking in $.33~q4q, at


which point it would no longer
qualify.
Snyder said the problem
with this is that lately, compa-
nies are competing with each
other by raising salaries.
So one employer who wants
'to hold onto his or her employ-
ee may offer incremental raises
that may give the employee just
enough to get boosted out of the
federal poverty standard, thus
requiring them to pay for costly
child care they cannot afford.
It's a situation that might
even make mothers and fathers
.turn down small raises, Snyder
said. And that's a paradoxical
quandary that hasn't gone
unnoticed by Wesley House, or
by Pam Lopez, who hopes to
open a new learning center by
Monday if inspections are com-
plete.

Newhagen reads from
her new 'Sand Dollar'

Jane Newhagen reads selec-
tions from and signs copies of her
new historical novel, "Sand
Dollar: A Tale of Old Key West,"
6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 17 at the SoDu
Gallery at 1100 Duval St.
"Sand Dollar" tells a story of
life in the Southernmost City after
the 1846 hurricane. In the book,
Mary Randall leaves her family
behind on Green Turtle Cay in the
Bahamas and places her hopes on
her abilities, her husband's suc-


cess as a wrecker and the affec-
tions of her children-to-come.
As events unfold, Mary strug-
gles to maintain her independence
and reconcile her ideals with the
realities of Key West in the 19th
Century.
Fran Decker, partner and
exhibiting artist at the SoDu
Gallery, created the painting for
the cover of "Sand Dollar."

New enter offers a variety of options for children
New center offers a variety of options for children


KIDS/ From 19

It's on Trumbo Road in Key
West near the U.S. Coast Guard
station and designed for kids
ages 3 months to 5 years.
"I intend to help families


whether they are subsidized or
not," Lopez said, adding that if
a family does not meet the
income requirements, she
would work to find someone
who could sponsor their child.
Lopez's new nonprofit proj-
ect, The Learning Center of


Key West, was a $250,000
effort that took a little generos-
ity from donors such as devel-
opers Pritam Singh and Ed
Swift, the Klaus Foundation
and St. Mary Star of the Sea
Catholic Church.
"I've never seen people
work together like they have to
bring this about," Lopez said.
The centers has five different
rooms, one each for math and
reading, arts and crafts, science
and discovery, dramatic play,
and toys.
Without subsidy, the weekly
cost for the learning center will
be $150, but that's negotiable
for struggling families, she
said.


According to Lopez, the
children who spend time in the
center will experience every-
thing from potty training to
learning to write numbers, the
alphabet and their name.
"There is a difference
between a day-care center and a
learning center," she said,
adding that she hopes children
at her facility will constantly
learn in their most critical of
development stages.
Lopez said she'd even play
classical-music learning videos
for the children, naming albums
such as "Baby Einstein" and
"Baby Shakespeare." And she
won't stop there musically;
each room has its own music


section where children can jam
on plastic mini-keyboards or
play tambourine. A puppet-
show stage is set in one room
aside a slew of toys.
Snyder says its rare to find
infant care offered at such cen-
ters because it isn't exactly
cost-effective.
Hurricane Wilma in October
2005 didn't help that scenario at
all, as it shut down several
facilities like Easter Seals
(which has since reopened),
Temple Christian and Baptist
Temple (which were both
beyond repair.)
"We lost a lot of our centers
when Wilma came through,"
Lopez said.

Fins huddle up for new season


Marathon starts
football practice,
preps for Conchs
By RYAN McCARTHY
and KEVIN WADLOW
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon High School's
football Dolphins began their
summer practices Monday with
an early 7:30 a.m. workout at the
school.
Head coach Lance Martin
said players should already be in
good shape after conditioning
and workouts all summer.
According to state rules, coaches
may work with players as long
as they do not wear pads and do
only non-contact or agility drills.
We'll "pick right up where
we left off in the spring, building
upon what they did [then] and
the summer," Martin said.
"Spring ball just ended two
months ago and there hasn't
been a day since school let out
the weight room hasn't been
open, so they should be prepared
when we get out there."
Marathon returns virtually the
same team this year from 2006,
when the Dolphins went 6-4,

Younger players
take the stage in
the 2007 season
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

At 7:25 Monday morning,
with the low summer sun casting
long shadows, four seagulls
occupied the dewy field behind
Key West High School and the
only sound was an insect buzz
emitted from the mangroves.
The first day of football prac-
tice was five minutes away.
Assistant coach Wayne
Miller, his safari hat pulled
down low, arrived toting a bag
of balls, cones-and- other equip-


ment. "It's a new era," he said.
"The red-helmet area."
Danny Jiminez, another
assistant, blew his whistle, scat-
tering the gulls, and then, in his
loud coach's voice, shouted,
"Let's go, hit the grass."
More than 45 players, many
surprisingly young, trotted
sleepily onto the field in shorts,
white jerseys and shiny new hel-
mets that indeed were the color
of candy apples.
Accompanying them was
Robert James, who carries a 14-
13 record into his fourth season
as the Conchs' head coach (4-6
last year) and who has' three

Younger team
aims for victory
in Keys Classic
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls' varsity volleyball team
began practice Monday with
what Kevin Freeman called
the most athletic team he has
seen in his five years as head
coach.
Freeman said the girls hit
the ground running their first
day, practicing hard in prepa-
ration for the annual Keys
Classic, a preseason tourna-
iment featuring all four Keys
hiigh'si idols .


The tournament takes place
this year at Coral Shores High
School beginning Aug. 23.
"We condition hard, a lot of
them have been conditioning
all summer," he said. '
Freeman said winning the,.
tournament, which his teams
hav done twice in five years,
is the team's second goal
every year. Their first com-
ing together as a team will
be especially important this
year, he said.
"This year is going to be
tough because I've got a lot of
girls who have never played in
a varsity game before,'
Freeman said. "We're going to

the Middle Keys school, but
that travel issues with mainland
teams have forced the two to
play one another.
"It's gotten to the point that
we're so desperate for games
that we'll play each other and
see how it plays out," Martin
said.
Both Keys school have diffi-
culty scheduling non-district
home games because mainland
teams often do not want to
make the long trip to the Keys.
Previously, the Conchs and
Dolphins rarely played due to
the disparity in enrollments.
Marathon High School has
roughly 300 students, while
Key West High School has
1,400.
Martin said every school on
Marathon's schedule this year
has at least 200 more students
than they do.
"We play one school with
3,000," Martin said of Deltona
High School in Daytona Beach.
Marathon will play a presea-
son game Aug. 20 against Pope
John Paul High School of Boca
Raton.

practice.
"We expect to pick up a few
more as kids come back from
traveling, and others get their
physical and paperwork done,"
second-year head coach Todd
Gideon said.
Gideon said the players
showed up ready to go, despite
the sweltering midday heat.
"I was really impressed with
their focus," he said. "They


were really into it. Everybody
remembered most of what we
worked on in the spring."
Coral Shores, 1-9 last sea-
son, will begin full-contact
practices with pads Thursday, in
preparation for an Aug. 24 pre-

weeks to prepare the team for its
first game in new uniforms
- against Boyd Anderson Aug.
24 at Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium.
James,. exuding enthusiasm,
led the team in sprints before the
players broke into groups -
quarterbacks, linemen, special
teams for instruction.
Miller, in charge of special
teams, said, "I'm.going to give
the same speech I give every
year. We're going to win or lose
three games because of special
teams."
James -coached the quarter-
backs, playing for the most part
a sure-handed 50-year-old
receiver for the three candidates
for the job senior Michael
Gallagher, junior Phillip Jones
and sophomore Phillip Young.
"Keep your elbow up," he
said to Gallagher, for whom
quarterback is a new position.
"That way the ball won't sail."
Commentary from the other
coaches filled the still air: "You
can't abandon your block" ...
"Sprint means give it your all"...
"Eyes. up, don't look at the
ground" ... "Don't walk, it's too
early to walk" ... "If we're not in
the right stance, we'll get beat
right off the bat" ... "Act like you
want to be here" ... "Anybody
can be an All-American in shorts
and helmets."
The latter comment, deliv-
ered by line coach John Hughes,
was a reminder that on
Thursday, pads would be worn
and the hitting would begin.
Every so often the players
were allowed to drink from vari-
ous nozzles at the water station
beyond the running track. The
water was cold and irresistible.

A few Conchs sauntered back
for the next drill. "Don't walk on
the grass," James admonished.
"On the hop."
Finally, amid a flurry of gulls,
practice ended at 9:40 and
everyone gathered at mid-field.
After remarking that tardiness
and a messy locker room would
not be tolerated, James paused
as he looked over his sweating
now-helmetless players.
Among them was heavily
muscled senior fullback Ralph
Major. Few others, though, were
of an impressive size.
"You don't have to be 6-2 and
bench-press 300 pounds to com-
pete," James said. "Nobody has
anything right now. You'll have
to show me."
Later, in his air-conditioned
office, with grass clinging to his
calves, James said he was
pleased with the practice but it
would be a week before he
would know what kind of team
he will have. "We were missing
a few guys," he said. "We had a
lot of freshmen, at least 20."
The three-week grind to
opening night had begun. James
would grab some lunch and
return to the school. A meeting
with the players was scheduled
for 3 p.m. Another practice
would begin at 4, and no one had
better be late.

ers."
This year's squad (the
Dolphins were 12-10 last year)
will be led by senior Alexis
Culver, the team's biggest hit-
ter. Culver missed practice
Monday while visiting the
Florida State campus. Freeman
said even on the first day of
practice, the team missed the
intensity she brings to the
game.
The team will also rely heav-
ily on fellow senior Jessica
Brier, the middle hitter, whose
game Freeman says has come a
long way.
Freeman said he-also expects
great things from freshman
Kelly Struyf, who he said is "an
unbelievable athlete."
But the collection of mostly
sophomores and juniors, though
athletic, will have to rely heav-
ily on defense to be competitive
with district rivals Westminster
Christian and Palmer Trinity.
"We have to play great
defense because the teams we
play against are good hitters
and play 40 to 50 games during
the summer," he explained. "So
it's kind of tough to compete
against them, but we do it every
year."

Here are some ways


to fill the tourney gap


An Upper Keys
marlin contest
is a no-brainer

As the heat of summer is upon
us, the tournament season finally
hits a slowdown.
The peak of tournament sea-
son hit early July, when we had
four tournaments Keyswide over
four days. Now where are they?
The fishing remains steady,
especially on the reef side. So
why are there no reef or bottom-
fishing tournaments? I would
think that style of fishing would
garnish a high amount of interest.
Go offshore mid-day any
weekend and count how many
boats you pass anchored up, yel-
lowtailing. It is a very sustainable
fishery and very difficult to pres-
sure the area yellowtail and man-
groves inhabit.- I hear anglers
complain about the amount of
dolphin, sailfish and backcountry
tournaments that flood the Keys
yearly and it seems to me that a
reef, multi-species tournament
would have some merit.
Mark my words on this one:
Within a year, you will see a day-
time swordfishing tournament
somewhere in the Keys.
SIt's no secret that swordfish
tournaments have gained popu-
larity in South Florida and for the
past three years have hit the Keys

and the Islamorada Swordfish
Tournament, which is set for
Aug. 24 to 26.
In my four years hosting the
weekday morning radio show
"Reelin' In the Keys" on WFFG
1300-AM, I've not heard of any
other new style of fishing getting
more takers than daylight sword-
fishing.
Anglers are realizing it's not
mandatory to use expensive elec-
tric reels to drop 1,000 feet down
and fight a freight train of a fish
to the surface. A lot of people are
manning up and going conven-
tional. And probably the most
important reason the fish are
there and eating.
Richard Stanzcyk from Bud 'n
Mary's Marina in Islamorada
really started to gain notoriety for
having success at daylight fishing
for broadbills, but he \\a ned me..


three years ago to be worried if
everyone starts doing it. He feels
the swordfish population has
made a tremendous comeback
since the late 1970s, when the
long-lining fleet took its toll.
Now Stanzcyk wants to curb the
newfound fame due to potential
additional pressure from recre-
ational anglers.
But not everyone agrees.
Capt. Marty Lewis of the
Main Attraction fleet on Key
Colony Beach agrees more
anglers are attempting this style,
but says it will never add up to
putting a dent in the budding pop-
ulation of swordfish.
"As long as they continue to
curb commercial long-line fish-
ing for swordfish in our waters,
we won't see a decline," he said.
What about this a blue-
marlin tournament in the Upper
Keys? Why let Key West have
the only fun with the Drambuie
marlin tournament (which has
had continued success for 25
years, by the way)?
There's daily blue-marlin
activity in the early summer off
Islamorada waters when the blues
come in to feed on the blackfin
tunas. With the amount of big-
game sport anglers that frequent
the Upper Keys, Zane Grey's
name could even by incorporated
into the title to add a sense of his-

Keys Fishing


Keep cool in hot fishing


We're cooking now!
We're into the main that's
main, not Maine lobster sea-
son, some of the hottest reef fish-
ing and the dead heat of August.
Anyone who's been out looking
for bugs without their shirt on and
thought they could handle it
knows just how hot it is now -
the second-biggest seller to lob-
ster divers behind butter has been
aloe.
Missing the heat of the day is
very favorable to most visitors
here to fish. It's also the most
convenient way to fit'all the
activities they've planned in the
time they have here.
You can dive all day, staying
cool while being in the water; and
go fishing at night. Those not
used to this heat and those
who think they are must know
Sto drink plenty of fluids while out
there in the sun. I'm not talking
about the ones that you have to be
21 to obtain, either; water is by
far the best and lots of it.
I've seen quite a few visitors
in lately who have had too much
fun and were not able to get out
the next day. So it's the time of
year to use caution, sunscreen lib-
erally, and pace the amount of
sun you get.
That warning aside, the snap-
per action has remained very
good for a while now. The hottest
depth seems to be in the 70-foot
range. Just look for some rough


bottom
along this
depth, set
up accord-
ing to the
current up
from the
spot you
find, and
h chu m.
away.
Most
will begin
an evening
Dave Navarro trip in the
late after-
noon while they can still see the
buoys and, since there's still light,
locate their spot a little better.
This also reduces the use of a
spotlight to locate the buoys on a
one-way basis.
It will take some time to get
the fish going in this depth, so
having some extra time on loca-
tion will allow you to eat and rig
up while the chum gets the fish
up.
Night fishing is popular
because it is a) cooler; b) some-
what unique to those who don't
do it that often; c) has a beauty of
scenery that will amaze you; and
d) is when the fish you've been
seeking in the daytime are biting.
Snappers do eat in the daylight
but not anywhere as aggressively
as they do at night.
For some real fun obtaining
lobster, try bully netting at night.

This is when the lobster are out of
their holes traveling around look-
ing for food. A good light, a bully
net and a stable friend are all you
need to have your way.
(Warning: An un-stable friend,
one who moves around a great
deal when you are not expecting
it in a small boat, may cause you
to do more night diving than you
were counting on.)
SThe lobster are easy to find in
shallow water with a light, as
their eyes reflect somewhat gold-
en (the same as yours would if
you saved all of the 21-and-over
drinks for the evening).
The offshore picture has
remained scattered, with the
inside edge of the Gulf Stream
maintaining a fairly close dis-
tance from the Lower and Middle
Keys. The past month, the aver-
age inside-edge location has been
inside of 10 miles out. This
means the probability of good
weed lines could be while you are
still in sight of land.
The hottest action has been
consistent around 14 to 18 miles
off the reef line. Some very nice
dolphin along with wahoo and
some big tunas have been hot
lately.
Flats fishing is red hot when
the temperature is not.
Early mornings and late after-
noons are the best time for teams
of' bonefish that abound right
now. The fish are smarter than we

are, as they usually avoid the heat
of the day on the flats.
Evening fishing around bridge
channels has been producing lots
of tarpon. Tarpon are also very
active on the flats in the morn-
ings, with a great deal more than
usual still around.
Believe it or not, an overcast
day will be much more produc-
tive than one that is bright and
shiny. I know this sounds silly for
sight fishing, but it keeps the fish
up on the flats much longer than
when it is scalding hot.


Work where you can and
when the fishing is best, stay cool
if possible and navigate with cau-
tion, as the lobster traps are still
just in. The lines to the trap from
the buoy will still be floating
quite a bit for another week or so.
Check the current flow and work
on the proper side to avoid them
for a safer trip.

if thinking along those lines.
Still thinking here, but what
about a junk-fish tournament?
You all know the unloved bon-
nethead, jack crevelle, Bermuda
chub, blue runner, cowfish, box-
fish, barracuda and the likes.
Instead of a kill tournament,
make it a multi-species release
tournament such as the Herman
Lucerne Everglades tournament.
You want to test a captain's met-
tle? Make him or her target a fish
he rarely aims for.
What makes these feisty fight-
ers less noble than a bonefish or
sailfish? The ease in which they
eat, I guess. I always say that
when you hook up a nice-size
bonnet or 15-pound jack crevelle,
close your eyes and see if you can
tell the difference between a
bonefish or permit.
These are just a couple of
ideas that hit outdoors writers as
they wait for the next tournament
to come along.
