Horton says talks are ongoing
with other potential carriers.
Horton said formal notifica-

that Sept. 3 will be Delta's last

one of at least six cities where
Delta suspended flights.
Horton said Spirit Airlines,

Florida Department of
Transportation officials on
Thursday unveiled larger but
less expensive plans to widen
U.S. 1 on Grassy Key.
Brian Rick, a DOT public
information officer, said
roughly a dozen residents
came out to an informational
session at the Sheriff's Office
aviation hangar in Marathon
to try to better understand the
scope of the project.
A project fact sheet states
the planned turn lane is
intended to improve the traffic
flow and increase safety.
"They looked at the plans,
and engineers and a former
project manager were there [to
explain] to them what the
project will entail," Rick said.
One of the residents attend-'
ing was Mike Horvat, a pro-
prietor of the family-owned
Gulf Stream Waterfront Motel


on Grassy Key. He said the
meeting was informative but
that he's still left with several
concerns.
Horvat said. he was
informed that the sign for his
motel is in a DOT right of way
and will have to be taken
down. He was then told land
unused after the project is
completed could be purchased
by the family.
"So basically, they're say-
ing tear the sign down and
when you buy the land you
can put it back," Horvat said.
The project was originally
intended to be 1.5 miles long,
from mile marker 55.9 to 57.4,
and was budgeted at $6.7 mil-
lion. -
Today, the project has
grown to 2.5 miles and is bud-
geted at just more than $6.4
million.
Among the scope of work
expected to be done: milling


and resurfacing, widening, the
addition of a two-way left-turn'
lane, and new signs and pave-
ment markings.
Construction was slated to
begin Dec. 21, 2008, and be
complete by Jan. 24, 2010.'
But in an Aug. 15 e-mail to
Chuck Horvat responding to
questions he had about the
project, Marta Trudeau of
DOT wrote "the estimated
construction start date is July
24, 2008. The maximum con-
struction time is 430 days with
an incentive to finish con-
struction in 370 days."
Horvat said he remains.
skeptical of the construction
dates and that either way, his
family's business will suffer.
"This is really going to hurt
our business," he said, refer-
ring to the length and scope of
the construction. "The safety
thing we're all for; it's a good
thought. But I don't know if it
is really necessary."


Proposed cuts total $1.2 million


BUDGET / From 1

Several commissioners raised
questions about proposed spend-
ing, asking district administra-
tors to come back with cuts
before the next budget workshop
Sept. 10.
Commissioner Bill Shaw
challenged a $1 million reserve
account earmarked for sick pay
and annual leave. That represents
22 percent of the district's pro-
posed salary budget of $4.4 mil-
lion for 2007-08.
He recommended cutting that
account by $400,000 along with
other reductions totaling $1.2
million.
Commissioner Dick Rudell,
noting the $13 million to be
raised in ad valorem taxes next
year, pointed to $4 million to 5
million leftover from previous
budgets and added: "Where's
that money?"
Rudell said he understands
reserves are important and added
"part of this money [reserves] is
looking for another building."
But he cited Gov. Charlie
Crist's admonition, delivered at a
dinner on Duck Key in May, that
"it's not the government's role to
bank money for the public....


That's what we're doing here."
Joan Lord-Papy, chairwoman
of the five-member board, took
issue with critics of spending,
noting "how far we've come."
She said the district has
expanded services and areas it
treats, including offshore islands
in recent years. It also treats Key
West's deep-injection wells to
curb mosquito breeding.
Commissioner Steve Smith
said the budget covers "unfund-
ed liability for the first time to
cover sick pay, annual leave and
retirement."
In addition to the proposed $1
million in reserves for sick and
annual leave, the budget shows
$900,000 in reserves for self-
insurance and $2.9 million in
reserves carried over from the
current budget year.
"We do not understand the
need to budget contingencies and
reserves year after year," Panico
said. "These add an additional
$2.7 million to the 2008 budget
proposal."
Shaw told the board that cal-
culations on retirement liability
for next year, plus a prudent con-
tingency, would suggest setting
aside $589,000 in that reserve


He questioned other spending
requests, including $30,000 for a
receptionist/clerk at the district's
new Marathon building, which
will house the aviation depart-
ment, vehicles, training facilities
and chemical storage facilities.
"We've never needed a recep-
tionist before in Marathon,"
Shaw said. "I'd say hang a sign
on the door with 'call this num-
ber' if someone needs to get
in...."
His laundry list of suggested
cuts also included $75,000
requested for a security system at
the Marathon station, $30,000
for a tree chipper and $40,000
-for canopies to protect spray
trucks parked at the Key Largo
station.
If the board accepted Shaw's
suggested overall cuts of $1.2
million, the operating budget
request for next year would be
$12.6 million. Comptroller
William Southcott Jr. said that
would represent a millage rate
"14 percent below rollback."
Since this was a budget work-
shop, there was no action taken
by the board.

uled for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 10 at the

Cruise passengers bringing in money in off season

es' wallets.
"We still charge our tariff at
$10 a passenger," city Port
Director Raymond Archer said.
There is also a $.63 security
charge, he added.
That disembarkment fee is
paid by the cruise line, which
gets its money from passengers.
As of Tuesday, three ships
had docked in Key West Harbor.
Monday, the Carnival Legend
arrived carrying 2,467 passen-
gers.
Tuesday, \the Carnival
Holiday, with 1,652 passengers,
and the Royal Caribbean
Rhapsody of the Seas, with
about 2,000, arrived. Today, the
Carnival Fascination will bring
another 2,000.
Sunday, the Royal Caribbean
Enchantment is expected to stay
in Key West, bringing 2,500


passengers. Then the same ship
is coming right back Aug. 31.
Aug. 28 will most likely see
the arrival again of the
Rhapsody of the Seas.
Additionally, crew of the
Carnival Glory has inquired
about staying in Key West Aug.
26 with 3,500 passengers.
Port officials at press time had-
n't decided whether to accom-
modate it.
Due to the huge influx of
unexpected visitors, many busi-
nesses will experience chaos at
the cash register, just like


Messa. And it will most likely
be welcome chaos, given lag-
ging sales during the off-season.
"It's like mana from heaven,"
Assistant City Manager John
Jones said. "We'll take it, OK?
It's the slow time of year."
The passengers are likely
unhappy about their sudden
change in itinerary, but there are
worse places they ships could
land, Archer said.
"Surveys indicate that Key
West is a very popular spot," he
said.
Port Administrative Assistant


Martha Arencibia regularly
updates the schedule for ships at
the city's Web site, www.key
westcity.com. The cruise cal-
endar is in the right-hand col-
umn.
Archer said "it's a very fluid
operation when it comes to
restructuring the itinerary for
cruise ships."
As of press time Tuesday,
Dean had caused 12 deaths.

FAA OKs $2.85M grant


Safety zones
to be expanded,
mitigation set
By ALYSON CREAN.
acrean@keynoter.com

Upgrades of Key West
International Airport have
cleared the last hurdle with the
Federal Aviation Administration
granting $2.85 million to extend
the runway safety areas.
"We received notification
that the FAA has reviewed the
project and issued a finding of
no significant impact," Monroe
County Airports Director Peter
Horton told the County
Commission last week. "And
they backed it up with cash."
The finding may sound a bit
governmentese, but it means the
county's plans to add a banked
Safety overrun to the east end of
the runway and filling and
reconfiguring a salt pond on the
West end will happen.
The plan, which Horton said
is crucial for safety on such a
short runway (4,801 feet),
means the loss of about eight
acres of the surrounding wet-
lands. In exchange, the county
will provide 20 acres of mitiga-
tion.
"We have been in the envi-
ronmental assessment process
for more than two years,"
Horton said. "The next step is
we continue with permitting. We
need a permit from the Army
Corps of Engineers."
& Talk of the runway safety
Extension goes back four years,
Sand worried environmentalists
Sand other citizens concerned
about destruction of the wet-
lands surrounding the airport.
Initially, the plan called for
clearing 25 acres that are crucial
habitat for migrating birds and
numerous local species. But the


acreage dropped when FAA
officials agreed to. the county's
plan to install an "engineered
materials arresting system," or
EMAS, that drastically shortens
the necessary overrun by creat-
ing an incline that slows run-
away planes more quickly.
Horton said $2.5 million of
the FAA grant for the project
would be used to purchase the
EMAS blocks. The FAA is pay-
ing 95 percent of the cost. He
said the other 5 percent would
be financed by passenger fees.
All told, Horton said the FAA
has granted more than $6.5 mil-
lion this year, including a $2.5


million grant that goes toward
paying off the county's $40 mil-
lion bond for a new passenger
terminal at the airfield.
It's expected to be open early
next year, County Engineer
David Koppel said. The existing
terminal should be fully reno-
vated by next August.
The county has also received
another $1.8 million for sound
mitigation for homes surround-
ing the airport.
Horton said he also expects a
$90,000 grant to study the feasi-
bility of using additional run-
way pavement at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport to better
accommodate planes. The run-
way is now 5,000 feet.

Suspected smugglers
caught off the Keys

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives arrested two
men Friday after they fled from
the U.S. Coast Guard with 19
Cubans aboard their go-fast
boat, authorities say.
The Cuban government itself
alerted the Guard to the smug-
glers, around 4:30 a.m.
The Guard found the boat off
the Lower Keys and, using a
vessel and helicopter, tried to'
intercept it. However, the 33-
foot Avanti sped toward the
Marquesas, refusing to stop. At
one point during the pursuit, the
go-fast struck the Guard vessel.
At that point, the Guard fired a
weapon into one of the engines,
disabling it.
Two men, one from Hialeah
and the other from Homestead,
were arrested and charged with
several crimes, including aggra-
vated assault on police.
The 19 migrants will be


repatriated.
Sunday, smugglers dropped
off 27 Cubans at Smathers
Beach in Key West. The smug-
glers got away; the migrants
stay under the wet-foot, dry-
foot policy.

Businesses to get

A survey to ascertain issues
of workforce retention and suit-
able workforce housing for Key
West is about to go out to Key
West businesses.
The survey has 19 questions
that cover four main areas:

Spirit offered deal


DELTA / From I

Transportation Security Admin-
istration "pulled the plug" in
August that year by deciding not
to provide baggage and passen-
ger screeners. A private firm was
eventually contracted to handle
those duties.
"We're trying to get them
back," Horton said of
Gulfstream. "They have said they
are going to serve Marathon; they
have not said when."
Meanwhile, Horton said he
continues to work toward resolv-
ing Delta's issues with the run-
way being too short-to sustain
service.
Delta cited "operational diffi-
culties with the airport's 5,000-foot
runway," which allowed the carrier
to fill only 35 of 50 total seats
before weight restrictions affected
the plane's ability to take off.
On both ends of the runway
are 400 feet of stabilized blast
pad, basically crash zones.
Horton said he has petitioned the
Federal Aviation Administration
to be able to utilize them.
"Lengthening a runway is nor-


mally a pretty big deal.... We're
asking for an exclusion," Horton
said. "It normally takes a couple
of years, we're trying to do it in a
couple of months."
Key West International
Airport has only 4,800 feet of
runway, but the 70-seat Delta jet
servicing that airport has higher
operating capabilities. Delta
spokesman Kent Landers said
previously the smaller plane is
used in Marathon due to a "lower
demand profile in terms of the
number of customers."
Horton said in the summer
months, passenger numbers drop
dramatically, making it difficult
for an airline to sustain service
"The community is really
going to have to get behind a
summer push, otherwise we get
another airline in and they'll go
away again," Horton said.
Spirit has been offered the
same deal as Delta revenue
guaranteed by a Small Com-
munity Air Service Development
grant through the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation along
with community monetary
pledges, and a waiver of airport
charges for a year.

The Sheriff's Office says
Chris Olstad, 52, was swim-

mile away. Around 9:15 when
on his way back, he was bitten
on his side.


He managed to get to shore
and drive to a Sheriff's Office
substation at the park, and was
airlifted to Ryder Trauma
Center in Miami. Sheriff's
Office Sgt. Tom Kiffney says
Olstad's wounds were exten-
sive, from under his arm to his
waist; a large chunk of flesh
was missing.
Earlier this month, a
Jacksonville woman was bitten
by what was first thought to be
a shark at Bud 'n Mary's
Marina in Islamorada. How-
ever, experts later-said it likely
was a barracuda.

Card Sound roadwork

an example that works

Every once in awhile we get news about a government con-
tract that finishes early and without major mishap.
Just such good news comes this week with completion of the
bridge deck replacement at Saunders Creek on Card Sound
Road.
A temporary traffic light has been used to restrict vehicles to
one-lane during construction. This meant some delays, but
proved not as big an inconvenience as some feared.
Of course, with all the massive roadwork underway on the
18-Mile Stretch, having Card Sound as a backup exit in case of
hurricane evacuation was always a concern.
As reported in today's Keynoter, the contractor faced a Sept.
1 deadline to complete the Saunders Creek bridge repair -just
about the time our hurricane season heads into the September-
October danger zone.
So with the two-lane road reopened to regular vehicular traf-
fic this week, we can all feel a bit more comfortable about
evacuation planning.
Now, if only they'd get the Stretch work done, we'd feel even
better. But that awaits next year.

And here's one that didn't

There's also the other side of government contracts, the one
where you just want to scratch your head and. say, "Huh?"
We include in this category word that the Federal Aviation
Administration has finally reviewed mitigation plans for Key
West International Airport's runway safety extension.
Mind you, it took four years for this process to wend its way
through red tape and bureaucracy.
Instead of clearing 25 acres of wetlands to provide a safety
zone for larger planes to land and take off, the Monroe County
Airport Department came up with an alternate approach
dubbed EMAS (for engineered materials arresting system).
Think of it like a giant runway truck escape ramp, which you
see in the mountainous regions of the Appalachians or out west.
An incline filled with sand and other materials slows down
speeds enough to stop trucks (and planes).
Engineered for Key West's runway, it takes up far less space,
sparing the habitat and keeping the airport upgrades moving
forward, albeit ever so slowly.
At $40 million and counting, the new terminal and runway
improvements and all the rest is sorely needed and. will be
appreciated by locals and visitors alike, especially those who
have struggled with the cramped construction zones and too-
small terminal space the past two years and counting.

Water supply can't support more building


EDITOR:
I've long wondered why our local powers
that be continue to allow more development
in the Florida Keys when we, the residents,
are increasingly subject to water rationing.
Since there is as yet no solution to our
water problems, why aren't we following the
lead of the many communities across the
country that have established laws requiring
a prospective builder to obtain a water per-
mit before a building permit can be issued?
Common sense tells us that if there's not
enough water for the people who live here
already, we shouldn't be adding to the bur-
den.
So I e-mailed a friend of mine and asked
him why, in a place where water is such a
precious, ever-dwindling resource, we aren't
protecting it ourselves with some sort water-
related building restriction. Guess what I
found out? We have one. It's called concur-
rency.
Florida Statute 163.3180, specifically


paragraph (2)(a), requires that: "Prior to
approval of a building permit or its function-
al equivalent, the local government shall
consult with the applicable water supplier to
determine whether adequate water supplies
to serve the new development will be avail-
able...."
I would like to know who is responsible
for signing off on water availability under
the concurrency management statute. It's
hard to believe there are adequate water sup-
plies available for further development in an
area where existing residents are forced to
ration their water year after year.
Janet Hartwell
Key West

Editor's note: South Florida Water
Management District spokeswoman Cecelia
Weaver says local governments must prove to
the district that the water supply can support
new development.


Private utility doesn't offer the best deal


EDITOR:
There is great direction for elected offi-
cials in the words printed on the cover of the
National Association of Counties' monthly
newspaper: "The wisdom to know and the
courage to protect'the public's interest."
To live a long prosperous and healthy life,
one must use many of the innate traits hand-
ed down from our earliest forbearers and, in
that most everything out there either wants to
eat.or screw you, being skeptical and
untrusting if you don't become paranoid
- is normal.
At a Monroe County Commission meeting
in the early 2000s (then comprising myself,
Murray Nelson, Dixie Spehar, Sonny McCoy
and Bert Jimenez), an issue was before the
board as to the cost benefits of sewering
Conch Key, Hawk's Cay Resort and Duck
Key as one project as opposed to doing just
Conch Key. I thought it was a no-brainer dis-
cussion.
Three separate engineering representatives
were there to help guide the board to what
seemed the simple conclusion, that doing all
three at the same time would be the most
cost-effective way. Clearly, after all the facts
were in, the economies of scale were with
tying in all three and then, at some time in
the future, pumping the effluent to Crawl
Key to a central collection system where it
would be treated to advanced wastewater
standards. All of the experts were in agree-
ment, including our resident expert
Commissioner McCoy.
However, when the vote was called, to my
amazement, it was 3-2 to do Conch Key in a
standalone project only.
Do the residents of Duck Key and Hawk's
Cay realize they would be done sewering had
Mr. McCoy or Ms. Spehar done the right
thing? The residents should be outraged.
So my question now for Mr. McCov is:


does he want to pump effluent to KW Resort
Utilities on Stock Island from Big Coppitt
Key when in doing so it enriches exponen-
tially with every tax dollar spent a private
for-profit corporation? And then continue to
do business with a company whose belief is
to consider its service area made up of irri-
tants, not customers? And when will KW
Resort Utilities be made to honor its contract
with the county [for treating south Stock
Island sewage] on achieving advanced waste-
water treatment? On time was January 2007
as stated in the contract.
Any county commissioner or member of
the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority enter-
taining doing business with KW Resort
Utilities raises 10,000 red flags for me. Our
taxpayers can't afford the cost savings it
offers.

Child was in obvious danger


EDITOR:
I would like to respond to the letter
in the Keynoter from Mr. DiMauro
regarding the unwelcome attention he
received from the Key Colony Beach
police on his recent visit "while enjoy-
ing God's creation, the Florida Keys."
I have spoken to both Officer Kris
DiGiovanni and Chief Robert Petrick.
As Paul Harvey said, now for the rest
of the story.
It was the Saturday morning fol-
lowing lobster mini-season. DiMauro
was waiting his turn to pull his boat
from the water at the marina.
According to the report, Mr. DiMauro
had his 5-year-old son on the boat with
him. At some point during the wait,
Mr. DiMauro decided to put the boy
onto the dock.
Mr. DiMauro claims he told his boy
to go to "Jeff's truck" and wait for him
(apparently, DiMauro thought "Jeff'
was waiting in the parking lot).
The 5-year-old wandered around
looking for the truck for some amount
of time, to no avail. The boy then
began crying and was visibly upset.
Keep in mind, the parking lot was
crammed full of trucks and boats.
Having no choice, the dockmaster
called the police for assistance, incred-
ulous that someone would abandon a
child in such a high-risk area.
Officer DiGiovanni responded to
protect the child. And he is particularly
great with children, spearheading our


Children's Free Fishing Tournament
each year.
Officer DiGiovanni stood on the
dock and motioned for the father to
come back to the dock. Once at the
dock, Mr. DiMauro was oblivious of
the danger in which he had placed his
5-year-old son.
Our city police officers operate
under a set of department rules and
policies, as well as state laws. Their
decisions are based on those rules and
laws. Mr. DiMauro wants the readers
of his letter to believe he was picked
out of a crowd to ruin his day. I dis-
agree. State law required our police to
report this incident to the Florida
Department of Children and Families.
Independent of the police, DCF evi-
dently thought the situation warranted
further investigation. That was their
call, not Key Colony's.
I applaud our police force for their
measured response under the circum-
stances. Had I witnessed this event,
there's no telling what I may have said
or done to such an oblivious tourist
who was more concerned about his
boat than his own son.
-I hope this won't discourage our
wonderful law-abiding and considerate
seasonal renters from returning to our
beautiful and safety-conscious commu-
nity. Here, we care more about people
than things.
Mary Schmidt
Key Colony Beach


Cops protected young boy


EDITOR:
With every situation, there are two
sides of the story.
In rebuttal to Mr. DiMauro's letter
in the Aug. 15 Keynoter, in which he
states the Key Colony Beach police
acted wrongly in dealing with him and
his 5-year-old child, I would have to
side with the Key Colony Beach
Police Department.
'It is sad that Mr. DiMauro feels that
it is OK to leave a 5-year-old alone,
wandering in a busy parking lot among
trucks pulling boats, crying since he
was scared and not being looked after
by someone he knew. The little boy
had a right to be scared; his father put
him in a terribly unsafe situation. In
this day and age, young children are
being snatched up and never seen
again. Thank God this did not happen,
and someone called the police to pick
up the crying boy.
The father did not even know the
boy was picked up by the police (it
could have been someone else) until
the police found the father at the dock
more interested in his boat. In situa-
tions like these, the police have to fol-
low state laws in reporting such inci-
dences, so the state investigation was
hevond their control.


If I were Mr. DiMauro, I would
look beyond my ego and think more of
my son and how much I would miss
him if the police did not intervene and
something bad happened.

Turn out the lights
EDITOR:
While driving past Coral Shores
High School at 11 p.m. on a recent
night, I noticed the following: every
light on the grounds was illuminated,
including the parking lots. This was
not done for security because
Plantation Key School had just
floodlights on for its security.
Every tax season, our rates go up
while student admissions go down
and this is attributed to teacher
salaries. Maybe this is incorrect. If I
noticed this at one school, who
knows what other resources are
being wasted and charged to the tax-
payer?
Let's do the basics and the hard
stuff will take care of itself.

Water flavor's in the mouth of the beholder


EDITOR:
A recent article described the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority as winning the Florida
Rural Water Association 2007 Taste Test for
best drinking water in the state for the desali-
nated water produced at the agency's plant on
Stock Island. It will go on to compete in the
national competition in Washington, D.C.
This brought back old memories of the
early 1970s when I was the environmental
manager for a multi-plant chemical and
petroleum company.
I occasionally visited our plants in
Louisiana, especially a large one in Gretna.-
At that time the only source of potable water
in the metro New Orleans area was the'
Mississippi River. All ground water was con-
taminated due to the proximity of the water
table.to the surface. In genteel terms, the river
was referred to as the alimentary canal of the


U.S., since so many industrial effluent
streams eventually ended up in Ole Miss via
rivers and tributaries.
The only treatment of the river water for
potable use at that time was sand filtration to
remove suspended particulates. Not surpris-
ingly, New Orleans at that time had a high
rate of stomach cancer. When I took plant
personnel out to dinner, I was requested by
my boss, who was aware of the situation, to
drink Dixie beer along with my guests. I did
this hesitantly, knowing Dixie beer was
brewed locally with "treated" river water.
When they had the national water taste-
testing competition in Washington, we all bet
on New York City water because of its high
purity. Amazingly, New Orleans won the con-
test that year.

Wag a tail for Fast Buck Freddy's


EDITOR:
When Fast Buck Freddy's in Key West
decided on "Dog Days of Summer" as its-
window display theme, the owners kindly
invited the Florida Keys Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to partici-
pate by displaying pictures of our dogs at the
shelter in their lobby and in the windows,
and invited us to bring two or three of them
to meet and greet customers every Friday
afternoon.
As the window display changes and our
visits come to an end, on behalf of everyone
at the shelter (animals included), I would
like to thank Tony Falcone, his staff and
management for this wonderful opportunity
to showcase not only our animals, but
through the window displays the work of
the shelter and our very urgent need for a
new building to shelter the animals in our
care.
Extra special thanks to Gypsy, the Fast
Buck Freddv's house don. who every Friday


has graciously allowed two or three shelter
dogs to steal the limelight. Our dogs have
loved all the attention and petting from staff
and customers, who clearly enjoyed spend-
ing time with them and generously made
donations.
More importantly, as a direct result of
this event, nine dogs have been adopted into
forever homes the greatest gift of all.
One such case was the adoption of a cute
little guy named Bengie. A couple visiting
from Fort Myers was at Fast Buck Freddy's
one day and saw the wonderful window dis-
plays and their eyes were drawn to the pic-
ture of Bengie. After inquiring about the
shelter and its dogs, the couple made a visit
to our shelter on Stock Island to meet
Bengie. They fell in love with and adopted
him. This would not have happened had they
not seen his picture at Fast Buck Freddy's.

Sea Grape project gets jolt


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Big affordable-housing plans
in Marathon got a shot in the arm
last week when the Monroe
County Commission approved a
land purchase and 99-year lease
to the Carlisle Group, a major
step toward completion of the 56
units that represent Phase 1 of
the Sea Grape project.
The commission unanimous-
Sly approved buying the parcel at
mile marker 50.5 from Sea
Grapes Ltd., a Carlisle company,
for $950,000. It then approved
99-year lease between the coun-
ty and Carlisle that will-assure
the property remains available to
low-income renters.
"This is a big step," Carlisle
Senior Developer Ken Naylor
said of the agreement. "This
brings in the last piece of financ-
-ing we need to move forward."
According to Carlisle Chief
Executive Officer Lloyd Boggio,
a two-bedroom, two-bath unit
will rent for $789 a month. A
three-bedroom, two-bath unit
will go for $912 a month.
Tax credits are the primary


I


incentives for developers to cre-
ate affordable housing, Boggio
said.
Carlisle is a major player in
affordable housing in Florida,
having developed more than
6,000 units in 23 counties. The
company has explored numerous
projects in the Keys and com-
pleted the 102-unit Meridian
West, a Stock Island complex of
low-income housing.
The County Commission was
poised to approve the Sea Grape
purchase a year ago but there
were some issues that needed
clearing up, according to Land
Authority Director Mark Rosch.
"This was on the [County
Commission] agenda a year
ago," Rosch said. "The lease
was not finalized, though, and
. there were some easement issues
that needed to be settled."
The city of Marathon has
already issued a development
.order and the developer is work-
ing to obtain permits.
Naylor said his company
expects to break ground by the
end of the year.

Naylor also said the land pur-
chase starts the process for
Phase 2 of Sea Grape in which
another 28 units will be added to
the community.
"We will come back [to the
County Commission] looking
for a. similar transfer for Phase
2," he said.
The two phases are estimated
to cost about $16 million, which
will include the expense of a
sewer treatment plan.

Fuel-truck driver
dozes, strikes plane

A plane parked on the run-
way at Key West International
Airport was damaged early
Tuesday when a fuel truck ran
into it.
Airport Security Director
Jerome Fain said the incident
took place at 6:45 a.m. The
plane, a 1996 Beechcraft
belonging to Gulfstream
Airlines (which flies as the
Continental Connection) was
on the runway, with only the
pilot aboard, waiting to be
fueled.
The fuel truck was
approaching the plane when the

Card Sound


fully opens


Temporary light
removed after
decking done
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A temporary, traffic stoplight
was removed from Card Sound
Road when deck replacement on
a small bridge finished Friday.
Early completion of work at
the Saunders Creek Bridge
means both lanes of traffic will
be open during the peak of hurri-
cane season.
"The idea always was to expe-
dite the deck replacement so the
bridge work would finish as early
as possible," project spokes-
woman Patti Jones said.
"The contractor got it done
about two weeks early, so that's a
happy thing."
Terms of the contract at
Saunders Creek called for the
work to finish by Sept. 1, when
the most worrisome part of hurri-
cane season arrives.
The Saunders Creek Bridge
deck replacement was among the
largest construction jobs in a
year-long program on Card
Sound Road to repair and
upgrade five bridges in Monroe
County.
During the closure, a tempo-
rary traffic light alternated north-
bound and southbound traffic on
a single lane through the work
site. Delays typically lasted just a
few minutes, but planners wanted
the work done before September.
"We want to thank everyone for
their patience during the past cou-


pie of months while we've been
working on the Saunders Creek
Bridge," Monroe County Project
Manager Albert Edwards said.
The $4.9 million repair pro-
gram on Card Sound also takes in
the Card Sound Bridge and
smaller bridges at Steamboat
Creek, Tubby's Creek and
Mosquito Creek. Work includes
structural repairs on concrete and
pilings, and new guardrails.
Repairs at the Saunders Creek
and Card Sound bridges address
two of the Monroe County spans
listed as "structurally deficient,"
a term that was spotlighted after
the deadly collapse of the
Interstate 35W bridge earlier this
month in Minnesota.
No other work in the Card
Sound program, expected to fin-
ish in late March 2008, will close
a road lane for an extended peri-
od like the Saunders Creek repair.
"There will be some occasion-
al short-term lane closures for
painting, but that's it," Jones said.

Stretch progress
Rebuilding of U.S. 1 north of
Key Largo continues on sched-
ule, Jones said. "
A timetable that would open
the new arching Jewfish Creek
Bridge to traffic in less than a
year looks within reach, she said.
"The bridge is scheduled to
open in August 2008, and they're
moving right along," she said.
Workers with Granite
Construction have poured nearly
a half-mile of concrete decking
on the new Jewfish Creek Bridge,
Jones said.

Fish forum set for Keys


Federal panel
is considering
rules changes
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Fishermen can hear proposals
for new limits on commercial and
recreational catches of gag
grouper and vermilion snapper at
a Sept. 4 meeting in Marathon.
Staff and advisers with the
South Atlantic Fishery Manage-
ment Council conduct the 6 p.m.
Sept. 4 public input meeting at
Sombrero Cay Clubs (the former
Sombrero Resort) on Sombrero
Boulevard.
"Recent stock assessments
show that overfishing is occur-
ring for these economically
important species," according to
a report from the South Atlantic
Council staff.
No definitive plan has been
adopted, but staff managers have
proposed lowering the overall
harvest limit for both species.
In the case of vermilion snap-
per, plans would cut the harvest
by 61 percent to achieve a sus-

tainable fishery, according to the
council.
The stock of gag grouper is
not as overfished, according to a
staff report, but could become
overfished this year if measures
are not taken.
Currently, gag grouper must
measure at least 24 inches to be
harvested.
A final rule changing the
South Atlantic Council's
Snapper-Grouper Plan is sched-
uled for a full board vote at a
North Carolina meeting in
December.
South Florida representatives
serving on the council's Snapper-
Grouper Advisory Panel include
local commercial-fishing repre-
sentatives Don DeMaria and
Scott Zimmerman, and Tavemier
charter captain Bill Kelly.
The Marathon meeting is one
of six sessions to be held on the
proposals.
In other recent fishery news:
Federal rules requiring
some Gulf of Mexico commer-
cial-fishing boats to install a ves-
sel-monitoring system are being


Cops step t


revised because of a power-drain
problem.
The controversiall VMS track-
ing devices 0- now required to be
in constant operation with hourly
transmissions can drain a
boat's batteries, National Marine
Fisheries Service staff confirmed.
That creates safety issues if a boat
loses its radios or bilge pumps.
Changes being considered
include lowering the number of
required transmission broadcasts
while a vessel is in port.
Scientists convened earlier
this month in St. Petersburg to
review the jewfish population.
Recreational and commercial
fishermen contend the population
of the species formerly known as
jewfish has recovered from seri-
ous overfishing to the point that.
the voracious predators threaten
other fishing stocks.
No harvest of jewfish is
allowed.
The ongoing population
reviews are considering some type
of limited harvest for scientific
research. No conclusions have
been.reached. Some biologists say
the species is not yet recovered
enough to open harvests.


curfew enforcement


Officials with the Key West
Police Department say they've
started vigorously enforcing the
city's juvenile curfew law, effec-
tive immediately.
"Seeing juveniles out at 2, 3
o'clock in the morning is just not
right," Chief Bill Mauldin saidin
a prepared statement. "There's a
high likelihood that they're
going to be causing trouble if
they're out on the streets that
late, and if that behavior contin-
ues to go unchecked, it will lead
to more serious problems."
The increased enforcement of
the juvenile curfew law comes


on the heels of the department's
launch of its new Youth
Division, based at 800 Emma St.
The juvenile curfew law
states that no one under 17 can
be or remain in a public place or
establishment unaccompanied by
an adult between 11 p.m. and 5
a.m. Sunday through Thursday,
and midnight and 6 a.m.
Saturday, Sundays and legal
holidays.
An unaccompanied minor
who has been suspended or
expelled from school can't be or
remain in a public place, estab-
lishment or within 1,000 feet of a
school from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. dur-
ing any school day.
A first violation results in a
written warning. After that, the
juvenile is guilty of a civil infrac-
tion and can be fined $50.
"This juvenile curfew law is
nothing new, but it needs to be
enforced to be effective,"
Mauldins.aid.

Troops get celeb treatment


Well, sort of;
event to raise
supply funds
BY KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

With the help of local celebri-
ties, a nonprofit group that sup-
ports overseas troops will hold its
first major Keys fundraiser at the
Zane Grey Lounge at the World
Wide Sportsman in Islamorada.
The event, scheduled from 4
to 8 p.m. Sept. 9, will feature
local celebrity bartenders, a live
auction, food and live music.
Proceeds benefit Forgotten
Soldiers, a nonprofit organization
that recently received national
recognition for the care packages
it sends to soldiers overseas.
Founder and Executive
Director Lynelle Chauncey said
Forgotten Soldiers, which has
sent more than 19,000 packages
to soldiers since 2003, stemmed
from a wish to help a co-worker's
son who was serving in the U.S.
Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade.
"He was calling home from
overseas, very depressed,"
Chauncey said of her co-worker's
son. "My friend asked me to pray,
but I started doing more."
Chauncey e-mailed friends
and family, who responded by
donating supplies for care pack-
ages. The Palm Beach County
School District (she then lived in
Boynton Beach) also helped by
prompting teachers and students
to collect supplies, and asking


students in after-school programs
to write letters to soldiers sta-
tioned overseas.
An initial shipment of five
boxers was then shipped to the
soldiers in need.
With the pro bono help of a
local accountant and attorney,
Forgotten Soldiers earned legal
status as a tax-exempt not-for-
profit corporation, and has since
garnered local and national media
attention.
Chauncey said that with a sol-
dier's name, rank, hometown and
mailing address, anyone can reg-
ister an overseas soldier at
www.forgottensoldiers.org.
Through the organization, that
soldier can then make specific
requests and will receive a
monthly care package from
Forgotten Soldiers.
She said many soldiers request
basic supplies like beef jerky and
toiletries, but that she's also had
requests, for essential items like
blankets and boots, things she
calls "real necessities"
Chauncey hopes Keys resi-
dents will help in the effort.
"Everyone in the Keys has
been extremely receptive to our
organization and what we do,"
Chauncey said. "This is our first
major fundraiser in the Keys, and
it's right before Patriot Day so
hopefully it will be a good
reminder that our troops need our
support"
The list of celebrity bartenders
whose tips will benefit Forgotten
Soldiers includes Islamorada


Mayor Dave Boemer; state Rep.
Ron Saunders; radio personalities
Mark Mills, Pam Godfrey,
Dougie Hitchcock and Chuckie
D.; charter captains Matt
Bellinger, Cal Sutphin and
Spencer Slate; and Coral Shores
High School football coach Rich
Russell.
Boerner said that although
he's not much of a bartender, he's
looking forward to it.
"I think it's a great organiza-
tion, a good cause and a great
event," Boemer said.. "They're
going to be putting up with some-
one who doesn't know much
about mixing drinks; I can draw a
draft beer, but that's about it. I
think it'll be a lot of fun."
Those who would like to
donate to this or future Forgotten
Soldier events can contact
Chauncey at (305) 378-6437.

Sheriff to hold auction


Cars, jewelry,
boat engines
among the items
Great deals may be had when
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office holds two auctions to sell
surplus and seized items in
September.
Jewelry, coins, fishing gear,
vehicles and outboard motors,
along with sunglasses, a Tomb
Raider game, call phones, two
iPods, a Blackberry, GPS units
and unspecified "rocks" and "red
and white stones" are among
items to be sold by sealed bid.
Property in the first sale can


be seen at Sheriff's Office
headquarters on Stock Island
from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Tuesday and Aug. 31 from 2:30
to 3:30 p.m.
Items in the second sale
include six outboard motors
from 150 to 225 horsepower, a
utility trailer and GPS units. The
items can be seen at the
Sheriff's Office aviation hangar
in Marathon Sept. 5 from 2 to
3:30 p.m.
Sealed bids for both auctions
are due at Sheriff's Office head-
quarters by noon Sept. 10. Bids
will be opened Sept. 10 at 2 p.m.
You can see lists of available


items on the Sheriff's Office
Web site, www.keysso.net.
Detailed bidding instructions are
on the site.
The items are auctioned with-
out representation or guarantee
about their condition or authen-
ticity, so buyers should probably
beware of the "Rolex" watches
and "Versace" sunglasses. But
the Ford Crown Vics 10 are
for sale probably are authen-
tic Monroe County law-enforce-
ment vehicles.
All sales are as is, where is
and all sales are final, the auc-
tion notice says.
More information is available
from Johnnie Yongue at 293-
7477 or jyongue@keysso.net.

Spanish Garden
menu features
Mediterranean
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

The owners of a new cafe and
marketplace in Islamorada say
they'll offer Mediterranean food
with fresh ingredients and a fam-
ily atmosphere.
The Spanish Garden Cafe and
Marketplace will be open for
breakfast, lunch and dinner six


days a week.
Owners Jose Palomino and
Oscar Valenzuela say they'll be
using fresh fruit, olive oils,
cheeses and other classic
Mediterranean ingredients in
their cooking.
"We have a thing we like to
say here," Palomino said. "When
people ask us, 'Who is the chef?'
we tell them Mother Nature is our
chef."
Palomino, who was born in
Spain and has lived in-the Keys
for 27 years, said the Spanish


Garden purchases all of its ingre-
dients from small farms in
California, Greece, Italy and
Spain, from farmers who can
guarantee the quality of the food.
The restaurant, which seats
about 30 people, will offer break-
fast items such as fresh-baked
scones, muffins and an egg casse-
role; as well as salads and sand-
wiches made with high-quality
meats and cheeses for lunch.
For dinner, the restaurant will
offer tapas, which are small por-
tions of Spanish dishes. Palomino

Keys wow the Beard House


nine one five chef gets culinary Oscar nomination


Executive chef Chris Otten
and owner Stuart Kemp of Key
West's nine one five restaurant
and wine bar earned widespread
accolades after showcasing their
sophisticated, innovative cuisine
for 80 members of the presti-
gious James Beard Foundation
Thursday night.
The nine one five team pre-
pared a Key West seafood-
themed dinner at the Beard
House, an internationally recog-
nized culinary center that was
home to the late James Beard,
chef, author and teacher widely
acknowledged as the father of
American cooking. The event
was funded in part by the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council.
An invitation to cook at the
Beard House has been called by
food experts the culinary equiva-
lent of earning an Academy
Award nomination.
For the hors d'oeuvres and
five-course dinner required by
Beard guidelines, Kemp and
Otten chose their menu specifi-
cally to showcase the subtle,
succulent flavors of local
seafood. Dishes included crispy
skin-on yellowtail snapper with a
tarragon aioli, seared Key West
grouper over parsnip puree, and
butter-poached Florida Keys lob-
ster with thinly sliced beef ten-
derloin.
"It was incredible," Beard
House maitre d' Lauren Baladan
said following the dinner.
"Everyone was raving about it."
Those attending included
Peggy Katalinich, a member of
the Beard Foundation and food
director of Family Circle maga-
zine.
"The chef let the flavors
come through," said Katalinich,
who recalled interviewing James
Beard himself at the house years
earlier. "He didn't have to mas-
querade and hide the basic fla-
vor."
During the dinner, Kemp, a
19-year Key West resident who
opened nine one five in 2003,
oversaw service of the six wines
that accompanied the dinner.
Otten cited the excellent work
of his team as a crucial factor in
the dinner's success.

the Beard dinner was less stress-
ful than a typical night at the
restaurant in Key West.
"Within the restaurant, there's
so many more menu items and
people come in at different times
- but this was all one menu that


goes out at all one time," he
said. "The plating was very easy,
we were all very organized and
it went very smoothly."
One of Key West's most
highly acclaimed restaurants,
nine one five is located in a


restored Victorian mansion at
915 Duval Street. Standout
offerings include flavorful tapas-
style dishes, indigenous seafood
prepared with a unique twist and
an extensive wine list with an
international flair.

H i g h
SSchool. It
starts at 4


p.m.
"You could say there's a lot
going on this week," Thiery dead-
panned.
While the Hurricane coaching
family looks forward to the new
arrival, plenty of familiar varsity
players return from last year's 20-
8 team that reached the state Class
3A regional playoffs.
Not among them, however, are
graduated standouts Svdnev


Stroup and Keishla Negron,
.strong players who anchored the
2006 squad.
"We don't have the big hitters
we had last year but the overall
outlook is pretty good," Thiery
said. "I expect it be a blue-collar,
ready-to-battle type team."
For Key West, Jessy Hulme
takes over as coach from Rick
Ridenour, who led
the team the past
three seasons.
The Lady
Conchs went 2-
t-.V ,/ 18 last year.
At Marathon,
coach Kevin
Freeman's team was 12-10 last
year and will be led this year by
senior Alexis Culver, the team's
biggest hitter.
For Coral Shores, senior veter-
ans coming back for the new cam-
paign include Alex Barron, Nicole
Pravata, Shannon Penix, Ciara
Sanchez and Casey Bishop.
Julia Hatfield and Shelby
Gentes head a strong junior class,
along with Kelsey Garcia, Hannah
Padgett and Chelsea Moeller.
"Alex and Julia have been hit-
ting well from the left side, and
we probably have the most athlet-
ic group of [midcourt players]
ever," Thiery said. "We'll see how
it goes" at today's tournament.
The depth of the squad, all
through the junior-varsity ranks,
pleases Thiery and assistant coach
Chad Gardner.
A huge contingent of 24 Coral
Shores players took part in the
summer volleyball camp at
Florida Southern College in
Lakeland.
"That shows the program con-
tinues to grow," Thiery said. "We
had enough to field three teams,
and they all did well."
The varsity squad finished high
in the camp standings, and a
mixed team of varsity and younger
players held its own, he said.
The all-JV team dominated its
[age-group] bracket, the coach
said. "Nobody was close to
them," Thiery said.

Fins travel to Boca


for exhibition game


Ross, White
likely to share
quarterbacking
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
varsity football team opens
play Friday at 7 p.m. with an
exhibition against Pope John
Paul II High School in Boca
Raton.
Dolphins head coach Lance
Martin said he knows little of
the team, which has a newly
hired coach, but he was expect-
ing to receive game film early
this week.
Marathon recently wrapped
up two-a-day practices, which
Martin said ran smoothly.
"They remember everything
we did. We picked up right
where we left off with kids in
the summer," he said.
Martin said he believes the
players are anxious to get the
season started.
"The second week the kids


get a little squirrelly ... same
routine, hitting the same people,
and our practice .Friday was
pretty sloppy because of it,"
Martin said, noting the team
rebounded with a good practice
Saturday held in the gymnasi-
um due to inclement weather.
The Dolphins return an
experienced team, having grad-
uated only four seniors from
last year's 6-4 squad. Martin
said that's made practices much
more efficient, as the team
accomplishes much more in a
shorter amount of time.
One of those seniors was
starting quarterback Adam
Ross, whose position was being
battled for by Kenny White and
Ross' younger brother Nyran.
Martin said that to start off,
White will be the starter.
"Most of the time [it's going
to be] Kenny, but in certain sit-
uations if we're in need of pass-
ing, we'll put in Nyran," Martin
said.

Key West
hosts Anderson
Friday night
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

When the Key West High
School football team opens the
new season Friday night at
Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium, it will wear new red
and white uniforms and be led
by a sophomore quarterback.
Phillip Young will be the
starting signal caller he beat
out junior Phillip Jones and sen-
ior Michael Gallagher for the job
- as the Conchs take on Boyd
Anderson, a strong 6A team
from Lauderdale Lakes, in a
game that begins at 7:30.
"He's a smart kid who has


picked up the offense," coach
Robert James said of Young.
"He's not big, but he's strong-
willed and doesn't get flustered.
He just carries out his assign-
ments."
Young is one of several new
players on a young, mostly inex-
perienced team.
"We. have the potential of
being pretty decent," said James.
"We have some talent, but it's
untested talent. We have young
players playing varsity for the
first time or getting an opportu-
nity to start for the first time."
But there are some veterans
back from last season's 4-6
team, including fleet junior
Alfred Rahming, who will be the
running back in the Conchs'

Conchs feel confident


After Classic,
season starts
with Marathon
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

With new enthusiasm gener-
ated by a new coach permeating
the Key West High School vol-
leyball. team, three weeks of
practice have been a success.
Whether that will translate
into winning matches will be dis-
covered beginning Thursday
when the Conchs face Marathon
and Coral Shores in the presea-
son Keys Classic at Coral
Shores.
Then on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.,
the Conchs open the regular sea-
son at home against Marathon.
"We're going to be good,"


said Danielle Hills, a senior who
played effectively on last year's
team, which managed only two
victories. "Everybody's working
as a team and we're doing some:
amazing things in practice."
Hills, whose father built a
volleyball court for her in the
off-season, has impressed coach
Jessy Hulme with her ability and
enthusiasm. "I think she is going
to be our leader," Hulme said.
Hulme, 25, is not sure how
the team will evolve, but is opti-
mistic.
"We have players who have
played before and been to camps
and we have players who are
new to the sport," she said.
"Regardless of skills, the enthu-
siasm is there. I think it's going
to be a good season."
Helping Hills with the scoring
will be two other returnees,
Jackie Garcia and Stephanie

Martin said Ross has a "very
accurate and strong" throwing
arm, but that White is the better
rusher. Ross will see plenty of
playing time at both wide receiv-
er and defensive back.
"In our offense, our quarter-
back has to run probably better
than he can pass," Martin said,
likening the position to that of
Tim Tebow with the Florida
Gators or Pat White of the West


Virginia Mountaineers.
Another Ross brother,
Wayman, has been moved to
linebacker from defensive end to
make way for sophomore.
Thomas Ryan, who has been
impressive in practice. Martin
said Wayman, a senior, has been
garnering interest from Division
I schools at the linebacker posi-
tion.
The Dolphins open their regu-
lar season schedule Aug. 31 with
a home contest against Key West
at 7:30 p.m.


Defense looks sharp


CONCHS / From 18

spread offense; senior Ralph
Major, a hard-hitting linebacker
who will also play receiver;
Gallagher, a defensive back and
perhaps the team's surest tackler;
and senior wide receiver Andres
Garcia.
In addition to Major and
Garcia, Young will have other tar-
gets to throw to, including junior
David Lee, a transfer from
Missouri; basketball player
Phillip Hardin; and Korey
Rodriquez, who will also play on
the line.
James said the defense has
looked sharp during two and a
half weeks of practice, particular-


ly junior end Devin Gilman.
If Young falters at quarterback,
James has the luxury of turning to
Jones or Gallagher. "We've
always had one backup quarter-
back but never two," he said.
The Conchs also have their
largest roster since James became
coach in 2004. "Believe it or not,
exactly 40," he said with a laugh.
Among them are two new
kickers punter Stephen Jones
-and place-kicker Thomas Daubs,
a transfer from Seabreeze High in
Daytona Beach who also plays
soccer.
Friday's game is called a pre-
season classic. That means, James
said, the winner will count it in its
regular-season record and the
loser probably won't.


Garmany. New players who have
been impressive in practice
include 6-foot Victoria Brisson
and freshman Jessica Bodmer.
"I'm really excited" about
Bodmer, Hulme said. "I see great
things for her."
Hulme, who played in a
strong prep volleyball program
in Ohio, is intent on beginning a
tradition of winning.
The players will have team
dinners, hear tapes of their
favorite music during warmups,
be introduced before matches,
dress alike on game days, study
for an hour on all bus trips, par-
ticipate in other school activities
and maintain grade-point aver-
ages of at least 3.0.
"I want them to be well-
rounded leaders in the school
and the community," Hulme
said.
Monday afternoon, the new-
coach seemed like a proud big
sister as she watched her team
run laps around the Bobby
Menendez Gym.
"They have a sense of pride in
their school and in this gym," she
said.

Friday.
The 4 p.m. Friday game at
Sheridan Hills Christian of
Hollywood technically counts as a
preseason kickoff, but head coach
Todd Gideon said his squad "is
gearing up for it just like a real
regular-season game."
"It will be a good measuring
stick right off the bat to see if
we've got the right guys in the
right places," Gideon said.
"We've had some excellent prac-
tices and the guys seem to be get-
ting our offensive and defensive
systems down. They're thinking
less and reacting more."
"Our speed will be critical on
both sides of the ball," Gideon
said.
Offensively, junior quarter-
back Chris Rini has more than a
full season of experience as a
starter. He also knows his crew of
capable receivers, including
Randell Jackman, Jason Soares
and Ryan Biondoletti. Rex
Coleman, a lanky sophomore
transfer, will work into the mix.
Julius Blankenship returns at


fullback to pave the way for half-
backs Darius Kittle and David
Miller, both moving up from the
2006 junior varsity.
Rebuilding .the offensive line
has been a major focus of presea-
son practices.
Veterans Jake Pinder, D.J. Farr
and Travis Sebastian form the
core of the unit. Coaches plan to
use the Friday game to see differ-
ent combinations up front.
On defense, the entire unit can
react swiftly, Gideon said.
That includes an all-new
defensive line, anchored by twin
tackles Justin Marshall and Kyle
Marshall. "They're not big but
they're strong and they love to hit
people," Gideon said.
LaDarius Sanders and new-
comer Ryan Curll at defensive
end guard the comers and charge
the passer.
Blankenship returns at line-
backer, to be joined by David
Miller, Matthew Perry and
Courtney Dixon. Positions were
still being sorted this week.
Ryan Bush and Jackman get
the start at corerback, with Kittle
and Soares roaming as free safety.
Coral Shores' first home game
is 7:30 p.m. Aug. 31 against
Ransom Everglades.

No excuses for not going


The rise in popularity of
swordfishing has created a buzz
so loud that I can't recall a loud-
er buzz about any other style of
fishing in the Keys over the
years.
Vero Beach resident Jared
Jillson's 360-pound swordfish
caught earlier this month off
Marathon on the Main Attraction
with Capt. Marty Lewis made me
realize there's a fascination about
these massive creatures that, like
Custer, don't know when to give
up. With the inevitable rise in
popularity of swordfish tourna-
ments, I'm surprised there aren't
more fishermen attempting to
catch them.
I hear several reasons why
they aren't:
"I don't like fishing at
night."
Until about two years ago, I
would not have had a counter for
this. But thanks to a couple of
innovative Upper Keys captains,
daylight swordfishing has gone
from a fleeting fascination to
welcome reality. People seem
more relaxed being able to see a
freighter from 5 miles away than
a quarter mile away, which seems
too often to happen at night (and
better yet, they can see you).
+ "I don't have radar."
Radar far offshore is not a
necessity but more of a luxury.
Freighters become a non-issue
during daylight as long as you
keep your head on a swivel.
Summertime thunderstorms


are another
thing alto-
gether. The
best advice
is to keep a
buddy or
two who
does have
radar in
constant
VHF con-
tact. They
can give
you a
head's up if
impending


doom is coming your way.
You can also take a weather
course that's offered frequently
by the National Weather Service.
That way you can educate your-
self about cloud patterns, build-
ing thunderheads, fast-moving
fronts that pack a wallop and
everyone's arch enemy offshore,
lightning.
"I'm intimidated when
leadering big fish."
I fall victim to this worry
myself. I get intimidated because
I'm not in the situation of leader-
ing big fish very often. The only
words of wisdom on this one are
if the fish is too big where you
worry about gaffing and pulling it
into the boat, then don't. Pride
and ego are a lot easier to deal
with than a fatal injury.
+ "I don't know how to rig
complicated baits,"
I am the laziest man in the
world when it comes to rigging


baits. Thank the big guy upstairs
for the bait company Calcutta
and others like it.
Frozen pre-rigged swordfish
baits are awesome. The leader is
already swordfish-ready and it is
just a matter of clipping a light
stick (for better visibility in deep
water) to a swivel and a 5- to 10-
pound breakaway weight,
Defrost the pre-rigged squid and
you're rolling. Most tackle shops
will even help you with your rigs
when asked.
+ "I don't have GPS spots."
If you have an offshore chart
that shows the contours of drop-
offs, which parallel to all of the
Keys, then you've got your spot.
The daylight fishermen who have
had the best success drop in
depths of 750 to 1,100 feet.
When consulting your chart plot-
ter or charts, look for potential
eddies, which are very small cul
de sacs on the ocean bottom
where the current will hit and up-
swell, trapping bait. Those seem
to be the best locations for feed-
ing swords.
+ "I can't afford electric
reels."
Not many of us can, or have a
boat outfitted in AC/DC current.
This is where I say man up.
Conventional reels and swordfish
do mix, and don't shy away from
braided line.

the Keys' 7 to 10 a.m. weekdays

SAVED BY THE.
SCHWARTZES:
Joann and Larry
Schwartz of Key
Largo and Miami
were lobstering
near Carysfort
Reef recently when
they landed this
5.5-pounder. 'We
did not have the
heart to wring it,'
Joann says, so it
found a new home
in the lagoon of
Theatre of the Sea
in Islamorada.

Now, it's our turn


Slower time
means more time
for angling
For locals, the time for
relaxation is here, at least for
those who are in tourist-related
industries.
The fact is around this time
of year, almost every year,
things just plain slow down.
There are many reasons for it
- the kids go back to school,
the fishing back home is very
good right now and the heat
down here just runs them off.

And those who have day-to-

pretty much status quo.
However for those of us in
tourist-related business, we are
just about done for a while. (I
know this because when I

was diligently working on per-

we mentioned we wanted to do
when we were busy.
For most, it means we can
go home earlier, which allows
us to do more fishing in the
afternoons or evenings. This
has been a good bet, for the
reef, Hawk Channel and the
area bridges have been bounti-
ful. The action's been good
with either live baits or a vari-
ety of frozen ones.
Squid has topped the list of
good baits for yellowtail, man-
grove and lane snappers. Live
pinfish have been very good
for mutton snapper and a vari-
ety of groupers in the above-
mentioned venues. But live
shrimp remains the best all-
around bait and soon they will
be getting larger so you can
actually see them and put them
on a hook larger than one you
would use to catch bait on.
Another good area lately
has been just offshore in the
late afternoons, with a fairly
good weed line forming almost
every day. Small and some
scattered larger dolphin have
been frequenting this area fair-
ly regularly. Some nice tunas
have been mixed in, too, with
the occasional wahoo. For a
short run, it has been produc-
tive for most.
A combination trip of run-
ning offshore for a few hours
in the afternoon and returning
to the reef to set up for night
fishing has been by far the best
option for a box full of fish.
With the close passing of
Hurricane Dean, the winds will
now drop, but they were bene-
ficial. The Gulf Stream has
remained closer to Cuba than
us for several weeks and there
has not been a great deal off-
shore.
With all of this churning up
the area waters, this should
prove a boon for offshore fish-
ing the next few days.
Lobster hunting is what
most of the locals are looking
forward to now. The big push
is gone until Labor Day, so
there is room for locals to
enjoy quality diving. The bay
has had fair numbers but many
were short or just legal and not
the bragging of the big ones of
the ocean waters.
