By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

With the-recent addition of a
provost position, an increase of
full-time equivalency enrollment
for the first time in five years and
fresh course curriculums and
schedules being added, Florida
Keys Community College
President Jill Landesberg-Boyle
shows no signs of slowing down.
"The first thing I need to do is
get familiarized with all the con-
stituencies," she said, adding her
focus is Keyswide rather than
solely the Lower Keys and Key
West.
Landesberg-Boyle took the
reins following the retirement of
Bill Seeker, who was president
27 years. She had been student-
affairs vice president at the
Pennsylvania College of
Technology.
Changes and possible adjust-
ments from her new administra-
tion:

That represents 11 percent
below the rollback tax rate,
Commissioner Charles Langstaff
said, noting the Legislature had
requested 3 percent cuts for spe-


cial taxing districts throughout
the state.
But that wasn't enough of a
reduction, said Rudell, who'asked
fellow commissioners to look
hard at previous-year actual
spending before finalizing the tax
bite for 2008.

Big-money series
goes belly-up,
developer blamed
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Billfish Xtreme Release
League may be gone but team
owners in the Cay Clubs-affiliated
sports venture have not forgotten.
t'I'm not going to walk away


from this," said Rob Ruwitch,
owner of the Sharky's Revenge
team. "I've talked to other team
owners, and I don't think they're
going to walk away, either."
In 2006, series founder Norm
Isaacs sold the BXRL to Cristal
Clear Productions, headed by
Cay Clubs founder Dave Clark.
Clark said he intended to raise
the league's image by attracting
national sponsors. The televised
tournaments also would promote


Cay Clubs properties.
The BXRL opened its seventh
season with a March 30-April 1
tournament in Marathon, sched-
uled to be the first of six events
throughout the Caribbean. A late-
April tournament in Bimini fol-
lowed.
All four remaining tourna-
ments on the tour were cancelled.
"That's it, fishing time is
over," Ruwitch said this week.

to me," Rudell said. He pushed
for an operating budget of $11
million, which would represent
24 percent below rollback, which
is the tax rate needed to generate
as much revenue next fiscal year
as this one.
He couldn't get a second for
his motion, so no action was
taken on his push for deeper cuts.
Afterward, he said he'll have
another shot at further reductions
when the board meets for its final
budget hearing at 5:30 p.m. Sept.
17 at Key Colony Beach City Hall.
Tavemier business owner Mike
Shipley, chairman of the Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce,


addressed the board during
Monday's hearing and asked it to
listen to the "small-business own-
ers who are screaming for help."
He cited his own experience
with tax increases that top 100
percent over seven years and said
he was "shocked" to see the pro-
posed spending plan first present-
ed by the Mosquito Control
District.
"You have to start thinking of
budgets like a business person,"
Shipley said, adding that when
times get tough, "we cut our
costs; government should too."
Earlier in the hearing, Key
West Chamber of Commerce
Executive Vice President Virginia
Panico presented an analysis of
district spending, showing that


operating expenses had climbed
from $8.1 million in 2005 to $9.1
million in 2006 and a projected
$9.3 million for 2007 (annual-
ized, based on spending the first
10 months of the budget year).
"Therefore the -proposed
budget [at $13.1 million] pro-
vides an increase of $3.8 million,
or 40 percent over the annualized
operating expenses indicated for
this year," Panico said.
Ed Fussell, district executive
director, disputed that analysis and
said "that's not a valid figure."
He said trying to guess at
weather conditions a year ahead,
and knowing how much chemi-
cals to buy, make it hard to budg-
et expenses from one year to the
next.

Subsequently, the school Web

"We're considering putting in
a proposal to the state for a four-
year program," she said.
+ Along with becoming more
accessible, effective means of
marketing to students have been
added, such as a Web page on
www.myspace.com and working
with National Public Radio to
bring a station similar to Miami's
WLR, to the Keys.
+ New classes and programs
in the works include marine
propulsion, public administra-
tion, welding and emergency
management systems. Firefighter
academies are also a possibility.
Dual enrollment is viewed
as a technique to strengthen
attendance within the Keys. Far
too often, students graduate high
school and travel to the mainland
to attend college, she said.
By targeting Keys high-school
students for dual enrollment, "we
can actually grow our own" com-
munity, LqndcbergrBFoyl said.

Team owner: 'We want our money back'


BILLFISH / From 1

because Dave Clark and Cay
Clubs balked."
Six fishing teams, including
one sponsored by Cay Clubs,
started the 2007 series after pay-
ing entry fees of $225,000 each.
Last week, Cay Clubs handed
back management control of
three Marathon resorts to devel-
oper Pritam Singh, who built
them.
Also last week, Cay Clubs
suddenly closed three of its Keys
restaurants, laying off an
unknown number of workers.
That followed the reported laying
off of some 80 to 100 staffers in
May.
According to the Miami
Herald, Cay Clubs warned in
regulatory filings it may be
forced into bankruptcy if it can't
refinance more than $74 million
in loans coming due this fall.
It owes more than $10 million
in late lease payments to condo
buyers and missed $1 million in
loan payments this year, regulato-
ry filings say.
All entrants in the BXRL were
filmed by professional television
crews aboard their boats while
fishing during competition.
Highlights of each event became
an outdoors programming staple
on the ESPN 2 sports channel.
"To me, this is a very simple
deal," Ruwitch said. "We paid for


them to put on an event. They
didn't do it. Now we want our
money back."
Over the last four months,
team owners tried to negotiate a
settlement, he said. At first,
league officials vowed to
reschedule the cancelled events.
Eventually, Ruwitch said,
owners were told the BXRL
"does not currently have the
resources" to fund the tourna-
ments' expensive production
costs and prize purse.
"I was told Dave Clark, the
managing partner of the BXRL,
had 'bigger issues' with his pri-
mary business, Cay Clubs,"
Ruwitch wrote in an account of
the league collapse. "...The
BXRL was supposed to have
been a standalone entity with its
own cash and cash flow. Well, I
was advised Mr. Clark had co-
mingled our (the team owners')
entry fees with his own Cay
Clubs monies. Like magic, all our
money was gone and this exciting
international tournament series
was dead."
Ruwitch said team owners
"offered [the company] an out,"
agreeing to take over control if
they were repaid a pro-rated
share of entry fees.
"We offered to go away, and
could have been the biggest sup-
porters of their attempts to right
the Cay Clubs ship," Ruwitch
said. "Instead, they ignored us."
Clark later offered a settle-

McPherson returns
to Monroe TDC

Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson was reinstated to the
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council Monday
night.
The County Commission
voted 4-1 to put him back on the
board.
TDC rules automatically
remove any member who misses
three consecutive meetings or


four in one year. McPherson had
missed four.
Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy was the sole dissenting
vote during a special commission
meeting Monday in Marathon.
"If this were not a voting posi-
tion, I would agree" with rein-
stating him, she said. "But the
TDC only meets eight times a
year. If you've missed four meet-
ings, there's a possibility that
there's a great disservice to the
board."
McPherson missed four meet-
ings, three of which he said had
to do -with city business. The
fourth has to do with real estate.
McPherson is a Realtor.
McPherson will serve out his
appointment, which expires in
December, unless he loses his
mayoral seat in the Oct. 2 election.


ment that involved stock shares
in Cay Clubs' planned merger
with a publicly traded holding
company, with repayment'several
years away.
"It's like he wasn't even lis-
tening to our conversation,"


Ruwitch said. "It was a ridicu-
lous proposal, a slap in the
face."
Ruwitch said he spoke and
wrote to Clark and BXRL offi-
cials in blunt language. "Now
I'm on the to-be-ignored list."


BXRL officials did not
return Keynoter calls for com-
ment.
All the operations staff who
planned and staged the tourna-
ments have been let go or
resigned, he said.

Zoning now
doesn't allow
particular use
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A zoning problem may force
Globetec Construction, the com-
pany awarded the contract to
sewer areas four and six of
Marathon's citywide sewer sys-
tem, to find a new staging area
for their operations.
Globetec rents vacant lots
adjacent to the Harbor Club on
Sombrero Beach Road from
Marathon resident Rick Servais.
There, the company stores
equipment, materials and fill
related to the sewer project.
Planning Director Fred Gross
said the lots are zoned improved
subdivision, but are expected to
become residential highthrough
future land-use-map changes.


It is possible Globetec's com-
mercial operations there may be
outside the realm of the lots' des-
ignation.
This, coupled with the fact
that Marathon City Manager
Mike Puto said some residents
have complained about the dust
and noise generated by the site,
may force Globetec to find new
space.
The topic was expected to be
discussed at Tuesday's regular
City Council meeting. Puto said
he was awaiting direction from
council on how to approach the
situation, but that it was impor-
tant to keep the residents' inter-
ests in mind.
"It becomes tough when you
start looking at storage of mate-
rials. You try to do the best you
can and it's going to be tough
because we're also building a
road out there," Puto said.
"We're just trying to do the right


thing for the neighbors."
Gross said he believes "the
zoning is overridden by the pub-
lic purpose."
"There is no such thing as a
commercial site in a residential
area, so they use vacant land as a
temporary use," he explained.
"They have to store it near the
site that they are working on."
Should council rule that the
lots must be properly designated
commercial for Globetec to con-
tinue storing materials there, that
would require the landowner to
make an application and go
through Planning Commission
and City Council hearings.
Gross said the city was
already looking into alternative
sites for Globetec to store mate-
rials.
"I thought they might be able
to strike a deal with the School
Board on the Marathon Manor
site. I was expecting them to
look into it," Gross said.


Pinkus ethics penalty is final


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Former Marathon City
Councilman Jeff Pinkus has
come to a settlement agreement
with the Florida Commission
on Ethics over a charge he
wrongfully voted on resolu-
tions in 2005 dealing the rede-
velopment of the Key Colony
Bay Hotel.
Commission spokeswoman
Kerrie Stillman said the agree-
ment entered into by Pinkus
and the advocate for the com-
mission, James Peterson, was
adopted by a unanimous vote.
She said Pinkus will receive a
$500 penalty along with a pub-
lic censure and reprimand.
"That file will be sent to
[Gov. Charlie Crist] for him to
impose the penalty by issuing
an executive order," Stillman
said of the agreement.
The settlement is in lieu of a
full evidentiary hearing before
an administrative law judge.
Pinkus is vacationing out of
the country and thus unavail-
able to comment on the
arrangement. i
"The Key Col6riy Bay Hotel


was owned at the time by Tracy
Holder, a Cay Clubs Resorts
and Marinas executive who
later died. Pinkus is employed
as a project manager.
The charge, which Pinkus
has admitted to in commission
documents, stems from him
voting on a development agree-
ment and major conditional use
for the property Nov. 8, 2005.
The items were on the City
Council consent agenda, which
includes items not singled out
for discussion.
Commission documents say
Pinkus "explained that he voted
for the resolutions by mistake"
and evidence indicates he
abstained when the resolutions
were addressed at first reading
Nov. 1, 2005.
The commission also ruled
June 8, when it first heard the
11 counts brought against him,
that he also violated ethics
codes when he attended a con-
ference call attended by city
and county officials. The meet-
ing was held to discuss devel-
o9pment!pssibilities for the for-
mer Marathon Manor nursing


home.
Commission documents
indicate Pinkus expressed Cay
Clubs' interest in acquiring the
property and they ruled he had
"a prohibited conflict because
of his contractual relationship
with a developer whose inter-
ests were discussed during a
meeting with city and county
School Board officials concern-
ing workforce housing in which
he participated."
However, the Ethics
Commission ruled Pinkus was
"working toward a 'common
good' at the meeting."
Marathon resident Rick
Servais filed the original com-
plaint against Pinkus March 6,
2006.
Pinkus was cleared by the
commission on nine other
charges, including violating
state gift laws; accepting a free
membership to Sombrero
Beach Country Club when he
should have known it was
given to influence his votes as a
councilman; voting on matters
resulting in private gain; and
misusing his office, official
resources, :or information
obtained for his benefit.

Village lowers tax rate


Final hearing
to take place
this Monday
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


The Islamorada Village
Council has narrowly voted to
levy a lower tax rate than one
tentatively approved in July.
At a special meeting Monday,
the council voted 3-2 to lower
the property tax rate from
around $1.81 per $1,000 of
assessed property, a rate that was
tentatively approved at a July 16
meeting, to about $1.68 per
$1,000.
The latter rate is in keeping
with the state Legislature's man-
date'for taxing authorities to cut
tax rates by 7 percent from the
current budget year.
Under the new rate, for the
2007-08 fiscal year, about
.$435,000, intended to create a


capital reserve fund, will be cut
from the budget. Staff members
from several village departments
said they're concerned the new
rate does not leave enough
money for emergency circum-
stances.
Fire Chief William Wagner
told the board he was expecting
to buy two emergency vehicles
with money from the capital
reserve fund. He said he will
instead buy them with money
from higher-than-expected
Hurricane Wilma Federal
Emergency Management
Agency reimbursements.
But Wagner warned against
cutting the fund, saying
Islamorada is in a hurricane-
prone area, where even mild
storms, have cost the village mil-
lions of dollars in recent years.
The final budget and tax rate
will be adopted at a meeting
Monday. The operating budget is
expected to be more than $10.

Speedboat hits
parked car

A boat returning to shore struck
a parked car at a Card Sound ramp
early Saturday, according to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
A Miami man accused of
piloting the large speedboat tried
to hide in nearby mangroves but
was arrested on a felony count of
leaving the scene of an accident.
Another suspect was charged
with interfering with officers after
he claimed to be the boat operator
in the unusual maritime mishap.
Witnesses told FWC Officer
Wade Hefner a different story.
A speedboat, described as
being about 38 feet long, was
docking at the ramp near the
Card Sound Road tollbooth.
"As it was pulling up to the
dock, a large bow pulpit on the
boat struck a parked car and did
some damage," said Bobby
Dube, FWC information officer.
"I had to double-check that
myself."
Jesus Lopez Fonseca, 58, of
Miami reportedly was seen at the
helm. Before officers arrived, he
fled across the road to hide in
mangroves. When -located,; he


was charged with fleeing the
scene of an accident, plus care-
less operation of a vessel and
failing to report an accident.
Another Miami man, Jorge E.
Rodriguez, 32, was charged with
interference for telling officers he
was the boat operator.
The case also involved the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
and federal Immigration and
Customs Enforcement.
Investigation continues.

million, of which around $7 mil-
lion is made up of property tax
revenue.
Village Manager Gary Word
said the new budget doesn't pro-
vide for employee training or
needed equipment. He also said
it allows for little flexibility in
emergency circumstances.
Councilman Don Achenberg
said the council would be "fis-
cally irresponsible" if it didn't
put money aside for the future,
and said that in accepting the
lower rate, the village would be
"living hand to mouth."
Mayor Dave Boerner said
that because Islamorada busi-
nesses have failed recently, and
because the economy is slowing,
the village needs to cut back.
Boerner, Vice Mayor Cathi
Hill and Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt voted to adopt the
lower rate, after a motion by
Councilman Chris Sante to
maintain the higher rate failed.
Achenberg voted for the higher
rate.
Also Monday, the council
voted to give $10,000 to
Islamorada Community Entertain-
ment for improvements to the
amphitheater at Founders Park.

Keys Opinion


Water shortage

just getting worse

Sometimes you can gaze into the crystal ball and actually see
what's about to happen.
Surely, that applies to the impending water restrictions that
will come this winter unless the rainy season helps rescue a
badly depleted Lake Okeechobee.
In much of South Florida, this summer's rains have been per-
sistent, heavy and recharged local aquifers. But Lake
Okeechobee has been way off the beaten path for most of this
summer's storm fronts.
Curtis Morgan, the Miami Herald's environmental writer,
updated the shortfall in Tuesday's Herald. What he found was
sobering:
August is the driest in two decades.
Only 30 inches of rain have fallen across the 16 counties that
comprise the South Florida Water Management District (which
includes Monroe).
Lake Okeechobee is nearly a foot below the historic low for
this time of year and that historic nadir dates back to 1956.
What's worse, Lake Okeechobee is running 4 feet below
average.
And all that adds up to prospects of more restrictions coming.
Most Keys water users recognize we dodged a bit of a bullet
in July when the Water Management District lifted Level 2 water
restrictions that reduced lawn watering and washing cars.
For those of you who weren't here during those Level 2 cut-
backs, it meant getting up very early on the one or two days each
week allowed for washing cars or hand sprinkling gardens.
Unless the rainy season produces more rainfall in the water-
sheds that feed Lake Okeechobee, we're likely to see a repeat of
those restrictions come the winter dry season, which ironically
corresponds to when we have more seasonal residents and visi-
tors consuming scarce water resources.
The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is already well aware of
this looming threat.
In fact, has begun work on a mega desalination plant near
Florida City that will become a critical backup when drought
conditions restrict drawdown on the aquifer that feeds Keys
water taps.
But desalination comes at a price.
With current technology, desalination costs about $5 per 1,000
gallons compared to less than $1 per 1,000 gallons when treat-
ing underground water pumped from the Biscayne Aquifer.
Efforts to capture and reuse rain water with gutter systems and
to reuse groundwater to replace more expensive tap water for
irrigation are a step in the right direction.
But we'll need a lot more luck with rain this year to stave off
a repeat of water restrictions come winter.

Give outstanding county staff cashbonuses


EDITOR:
The Monroe County Commission professes to
be looking in all the dusty comers for ways to
save taxpayer dollars such as cutting programs
and reducing staff. In the business world, you
sometimes need to spend money to make money.
So my suggestion is to take a successful page -
from the business world and use it. At the begin-
ning of each commission meeting, the commis-
sion awards certificates to outstanding employees,
recognizing employee of the month or length of
service, etc.
I would like to see added to this portion of the
agenda a bonus of the month awarded from a list
of county employees who have submitted money-
saving ideas to the county and been awarded cash
bonuses based on the amount of savings to be
generated by an idea.
As an example, this is taken from a business
report from a large company that included both


administrative offices and manufacturing depart-
ments. An employee submitted the following:
Both departments used No. 2 pencils. The sec-
retarial staff liked long, well-sharpened pencils
and, when slightly used, would dispose of the
stub and sharpen a new one. The crews working
in the shop liked stubby pencils and they would
break new ones in half, as they could put.the
shortened half behind their ear or in a shirt pock-
et. They would then throw the other half in the
trash.
So an alert janitorial staff member turned in
the suggestion that all new pencils should go to
the administrative offices and their used stubs
should be sent to the workshop.
Because of the size of this company, this one
small suggestion saved the company thousands of
dollars a year.

Puto represents all that is Marathon


EDITOR:
Referring to the recent outpouring of support
for Marathon City Manager Mike Puto and his
generous good-willed nature toward all things
Marathon, I came away with many questions and
observations.
During his contract renewal meeting Aug. 30, it
was obvious many citizens were concerned for
Mike's future as well as the future of Marathon.
The room was crowded and it was hot. Many ener-
gies were swirling around because, frankly, the
sentiment of the community is we like Mike. Some
shadowy people were around just for the show.
Many spoke on behalf of the man Mike is, car-
ing and all-consumed with his love for this com-
munity. No one in the community spoke to have
his title removed and no one on the City Council
gave just cause except for mere vagaries referring
to his poor evaluation. However, the contentious
nature of the debate and final judgment speak to
many more issues.
Marathon is a small town evolving through its
infancy with many growing pains. It is a fragile
time for Marathon as a whole. Besides an oncom-
ing economic downtum nationally, we have locally
a currently stalled real estate market and many
environmental concerns that we all live with day to
day (hurricane seasons past and present, infrastruc-
ture rebuilding and polluted nearshore waters, to

Fix the stuck shower
EDITOR:
After going to Sombrero Beach, I noticed a
shower was still running without anybody using it
and, with the current water shortage and restric-
tion of water in the Florida Keys I felt once again
I had to write a letter to the Keynoter.
It seems the last two observations of a problem
I noticed were fixed quite rapidly, so I like to use
this forum. The at-times constant running shower
is the first one next to the first set of bathrooms. I
can't believe nobody else has seen this and/or
brought it to anyone's attention.

name a few).
We as citizens want to feel good about our town
and the people who live here. Mike is a person we
feel good about because he embodies good neigh-
borly characteristics. You don't have to worry that
he will cut your throat. He realizes what public
service is. It is not self-service.
I wonder about the motivation of the current
crop of representatives who claim to appreciate the
best interests of Marathon but don't seem willing
to tell us what exactly they are. I wonder about the
combative attitude of some and the unwillingness-
of others to support anything unless they proposed
it. I wonder if any have read our charter with any
understanding that the manager operates on their
direction.
Walking on eggshells is hardly stable footing
for anyone. Demeaning and minimizing a person's
dedication and hard work is very cruel to say the
least. Mike deserves support. The staff deserves
encouragement. The city deserves stability so it
can face the issues in front of us in a way that
make us all proud to live here.

Market might continue on limited basis


Pantelis ponders
future plans
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Waterfront Market owner
Buco Pantelis said on Tuesday
that he plans to salvage at least
part of his popular Old Town
Key West grocery store in
response to the outpouring of
concern from his longtime
wholesale customers.
"There's a real possibility
that the wholesale portion of the
market will continue," Pantelis
said. "These people, the restau-
rant people, have been with me
so long, I can't see letting them
down. I won't let them down."


The past week, restaurateurs
and citizens in Key West and
beyond have been lamenting the
market's pending closure, and
many have blamed the city for
raising the market's rent.
The city owns the property
that houses the market, and Key
West officials had negotiated a
rent increase and other new
lease terms with Pantelis after
his previous lease expired in
2005. Pantelis verbally agreed
to those terms earlier this sum-
mer, but asked for a delay until
Oct. 1 to sign the documents.
However, last week he issued
a letter to the city, through his
attorney, announcing that he
would not sign the lease but


would instead liquidate his busi-
ness and close its doors on Sept.
30.
Pantelis said he made the
decision to close his landmark
store for financial reasons.
"With the increase [the city]
has proposed it doesn't give me
the leeway to grow the business.
That's pretty much it," Pantelis
said. "So my decision to liqui-
date or get out is strictly finan-
cial. Anyone in my shoes would
do the same thing."
Pantelis said that although he
is not ready to release details
regarding his plan to continue
his wholesale operation, he does
want to reassure his wholesale
customers that he is trying to
work out a new arrangement. He
said his phones have been "ring-


ing off the hook" with calls from
concerned customers.
"I'm talking with three peo-
ple right now, and two of those
would give us a seamless transi-
tion," Pantelis said. "Beyond
that I can't say much more."
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson confirmed that
Pantelis "has had conversations
with the city, but I'm not at lib-
erty to comment because
they've not been solidified.
What we're working on would
have to go before the Bight
Board for'final approval."
McPherson said his office
has received a few calls and e-
mails from citizens and even
some tourists; the majority of


which were in support of keep-
ing the Waterfront Market open
on the bight.
"The mantra has been, 'what-
ever you have to do we want
to buy our vegetables from
Buco,'" McPherson said.
"Nobody's winning in this the
way it is now. It's in every-
body's best interests to work this
out."
Pantelis said he has been
touched by the support and con-
cern expressed by his cus-
tomers.
"I never knew in 21 years
I've affected so many people,"
Pantelis said. "That's what you
base your life on, and I'm OK
with mine."


'Vandy' open house offered


Reef Makers
sends invites
to officials
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Some Keys officials will have
a chance to see just how their mil-
lions are being spent during an
open house schedules in October
at the USS Hoyt Vandenberg's
temporary home in Norfolk, Va.
"We've invited people who
have been involved in pulling this
project together," said Joe
Weatherby, founder of the
Vandenberg Project and an
employee of Reef Makers, the
company that hopes to sink the
512-foot former military ship 7
miles off Key West as an artificial
reef.
Reef Makers sent out invita-
tions this week to the Key West
city and Monroe County com-
missioners, as well as local con-
tributors, for an Oct. 8 tour of the
ship at the shipyard where it's
being readied for sinking in early
20Q8.
Who exactly would pay for
the trips isn't known, though it
won't be Reef Makers.
"There's a lot of curiosity
about what this process looks
like," Weatherby said. "The ship
is over halfway cleaned. We'll
start with a short program
explaining the environmental
cleanup, and hear from some


experts on what's involved in
making it safe for an artificial
reef."
Invitations have gone out to
most local officials, though
Weatherby says it's too early to
know who's coming.
The project has been in the
works for several years, and the
$5.7 million price tag has gar-
nered controversy, especially
when the County Commission
voted at the last minute to include
$2 million toward the project in
the 2006-07 county budget.
County Administrator Tom
Willi said the money would be
rolled over to next year.
"It's in [this year's] budget,"
Willi said, "and we're required,
because of an interlocal agree-
ment with the city of Key West,
to fund it for the upcoming year."
Willi said since 2007-08 will
be an extremely tight year finan-
cially, he looked for any means


possible to push off the expendi-
ture until the following year.
"But it looks like it will be
needed in '08," he said, "though
the city cannot require reimburse-
ment until the hull is on the bot-
tom."
The Key West City
Commission took the lead on the
project, overseeing the collection
of the funding and pledging the
final $1.3 million necessary to
make the sinking a reality.
"We're still fundraising,"
Weatherby said, "because we are
under an obligation to repay the
city for the $1.3 million."
He said it's too early to
announce a sinking date.
"Moving the ship is compli-
cated," Weatherby said. "There
are the insurance companies to
consider, the Coast Guard. It's a
lot to coordinate."
Anyone interested in attending
the open house in Virginia should
contact Reef Makers at (856)
273-1000.

Fire board lowers tax


Fire chief
wanted increase
for more staff
BY DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Key Largo emergency-serv-
ices district commissioners will
likely adopt a budget next week
that reduces spending slightly
compared to this year. Property
owners in the district will also
probably pay a lower tax rate for
fire protection and ambulance
services.
Approval of the tentative tax
rate and budget at the fire/EMS
district board's Monday meeting
did not come as good news to
Key Largo's volunteer fire chief,
who requested a slightly higher
tax rate to be able to hire two
additional firefighters, which
would bring the paid force to
four firefighters.
After sometimes-intense
back-and-forth between Key
Largo Fire and Emergency
Management Services District
Commissioner Tom Tharp and
Chief Sergio Garcia over depart-


ment spending, the board unani-
mously approved a lower tax
rate than Garcia sought.
The commission will vote on
the final tax rate and budget at its
Sept. 17 meeting at the Key
Largo Wastewater Treatment
District building, in the median
at mile marker 98.8 at 7 p.m.
If the rate approved Monday
becomes final, residents in the
district will pay around 69 cents
per $1,000 of assessed property,
generating about $2.5 'million in
tax revenue. The rate is around a
nickel less per $1000 than the
2006-07 rate.
The total operating budget for
the district, fire department and
ambulance corps will be almost
$3.5 million if approved next
week. The fiscal year 2006-07
budget totals about $3.6 million.
Commissioners can vote to
lower the proposed tax rate, but
not to increase it. -
Garcia was pushing for a tax
rate of just over 70 cents per
$1,000 of taxable assessed prop-
erty value, and a $3.54 million
budget, which would allow for
two additional paid firefighters,


among other items Garcia said
he wanted.
But Tharp said it would send
the wrong message to adopt a
rate higher than needed to collect
the same amount of tax revenue
as last year.
"We need to look at this
budget as if it was coming out of
our own pockets, and I think we
should continue to look at it this
way," Tharp said. -
The district does not have to
cut roll back its tax levy as man-
dated by Florida's Legislature
this year because it has not exist-
ed long enough.
The commission last year
gave Garcia permission to hire
two paid firefighters.
Garcia said the extra fire-
fighters are. needed to keep the
department's two stations staffed
at all times. The department has
117 volunteers up significant-
ly from when it maintained
around 50 but almost all are
from Miami-Dade County. This
-makes ensuring someone is
always at the station more of a
challenge, Garcia said.
The ambulance corps has two
paid paramedics manning its sta-
tion 24 hours a day.

Sewer confusion


is cleared for some


Bills allow
payment
over 20 years
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It was deja vu all over again
Monday evening as Monroe
County officials tried to explain
sewer hookup fees to some
Lower Keys residents who were
confused about a $4,500 sewer
assessment letter that went out in
August.
"It seems totally unreason-
able," Penny L. Rains told the
County Commission during a
special meeting in Marathon.
"It's very, very short notice to
come up with $4,500."
Notices went out to home-
owners on Big Coppitt, Geiger
and Rockland keys explaining
they are required to pay a sewer
development fee of $4,500 per
household. Several years ago,
Stock Island property owners
turned out in droves, confused
about the cost of hooking up to
sewers.
"Property owners can choose
to prepay," explained County
Sewer Project Manager Liz
Wood, or they can spread the
cost over 20 years, paying $441
annually.


Keys briefs


Wheeler is elected
to statewide post

Harold Wheeler, director of
the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council, has been
elected to the board of directors
for the Florida Association of
Convention & Visitors Bureaus.
The group serves as an
umbrella organization for all
Florida convention and visitor
bureaus to provide cooperative
tourism industry education; facil-
itate exchanges of information
between the bureaus and tourist
development councils, and
develop an awareness of legisla-
tive issues.
Wheeler also serves on
Florida's State Commission on
TouriSmt, I.


According to the letter, tax-
payers who do not prepay will
automatically see the $441 each
year on their tax bill.
The County Commission
passed an ordinance nearly three
years ago capping sewer devel-
opment fees for the unincorpo-
rated areas at $4,500 and setting
up a means of paying over 20
years.
County Administrator Tom
Willi said the average cost for
each household in the Big
Coppitt project "is somewhere
between $17,000 and $20,000
per connection. We're asking
each property owner to kick in
$4,500. We think that's a pretty
fair deal.
"The beauty part of the spe-
cial assessment," Willi said, "is
you don't have to come up with
the money out of pocket. You
can finance it over the next 20
years."
Wood explained that property
owners can opt out of the assess-
ment any year they choose with-
out being penalized.
If a resident decides two
years down the road to pay it all,
he or she will be credited for the
assessments paid each year, and
that amount will be subtracted
from the $4,500.owed. They will
owe the balance with no interest
charges.-
Commissioner Dixie Spehar
noted the annual assessment
breaks down to about $36 a
month.
Part of the confusion seemed
to stem from a sentence in the
county's mailing saying the total
assessment revenue collected
over the entire 20 years is esti-
mated to be some $18.5 million.
Rains and other speakers said
they interpreted it as a typo and
assumed it meant the homeown-
er would be responsible for
some $18,500 if they opted for
the payment plan.
Wood said the state required
the. disclosure, which merely
tells the total figure the county
would collect from all home-
owners over 20 years if every-
one financed their fees.
The overall cost of the project
is expected to run around $50
million, Wood said. The state
has committed to pay $11 mil-
lion of that.

Key West forum


draws a crowd


8 candidates
for commission
spar together
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A Hometown Political Action
Committee forum at the Tropic
Cinema in Key West Monday
included just about all of the cur-
rent and most popular city
grievances: parking, quality of
life, affordable housing and the
general future' of the
Southernmost City.
Grilling the candidates were
business owner Jon Allen,
Keynoter Editor Larry Kahn and
Island Radio 107.1-FM owner
Linda Russin.
Candidates for the District 2
seat, incumbent Mark Rossi and
banker Todd German, kicked off
discussion about what two spe-
cific initiatives they would push
to make more parking available
in downtown Key West.
Rossi said he's been a long-
time advocate of moving City
Hall from its current location at
Angela and Simonton Streets to a
New Town location and con-
structing a three- or four story-
parking garage there where City
Hall now sits.
German said he agreed with
that proposal, but said there is
also a possibility of a parking
location on Caroline Street. He
also said taking away some of the
curb cuts in Old Town would
make more room for spots.
Asked about Key West's
tourism economy, District 4 can-
didate and business owner Barry
Gibson said the fishing industry is
crucial, while one of his oppo-
nents, attorney Richard Klitenick,
said he doesn't want to see Key
West turn into a "second-home
community" and would like to
attract a higher quality of tourists.
The third candidate, attorney
George Maurer, said there are
many other industries Key West
should explore, such as telecom-
munications.
Allen prompted a discussion
among District 5 candidates
about Key West's lack of facili-
ties-for children.
Candidate Teri Johnston, Fair
Insurance Rates for Monroe pres-


ident, acknowledged the number
of children facilities is insufficient
and former Historic Architectural
Review Commission Vice
Chairman Vincent Mancini point-
ed out that Key West doesn't have
a bowling alley.
Incumbent Jose Menendez
mentioned his involvement in the
Parent-Teacher, Association and
his tutor position in Key West
High School. He also stressed his
pro-tourism ideals later in the
forum, labeling it the lifeblood of
the community.
Klitenick stressed maintaining
quality of life in Key West, while
Maurer noted his concern over
tax-increment financing and the
fact that none of it goes to New
Town, only Bahama Village and
the Key West Bight.
. Gibson said Key West voters
have complained to him about not
having a say in who the commis-
sioners outside their district are.
On the topic of Key West's
direction, German said the city is
"losing its character," adding,
"The sunset celebration [at
Mallory Square] is a shadow of
its former self. We need to save it,
quick."
Rossi took a stay-the-course
stance: "We've got a lot of posi-
tive things going on," he said,
noting the sinking of the USS
Hoyt Vandenberg as an artificial
reef and the possibility of Cuba
opening to tourists.
Johnston addressed "afford-
able living" and Mancini, asked-
to name any failures he's
observed of the City
Commission, said commissioners
are doing the best they can and
have a "thankless job."
Gibson talked about running
Key West "like a business," while
Klitenick expressed support for
privatizing "certain aspects of the
city."
Candidates expressed support
in holding people accountable for
their low-income deed restrictions.
Johnston supports redevelop-
ment, while Mancini stressed
maintaining historical allure.
Klitenick questioned Gibson's
involvement in downtown busi-
nesses, who said it's advantageous
to have his "finger on'the pulse"
of the business community.
The election is Oct.: 2.

in arson case


'Family dispute'
reportedly is
behind charge,
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A family dispute led to an
attempted arson Sept. 4 and
Harry Bethel Jr., who turned
himself in Tuesday, was arrest-
ed on first-degree felony arson
and fire-bombing charges,
according to Key West police
reports.
Elsa and Kevin
Degraffenreid, Bethel Jr.'s
cousin, reportedly said "some-
one had tried to set their
thatched roof tiki hut on fire" at
2102 Seidenberg Ave. at 2:08
a.m.
Harry Bethel III, 21, was
listed as a suspect in the initial
police report but police said
they later determined he wasn't
at the scene of the alleged
crime. But he did have an alter-
cation earlier in the evening
with his cousin, Kevin
Degraffenreid Jr., because he
was with Degraffenreid's ex-
girlfriend.
City Commissioner Harry
Bethel is the father of Bethel
Jr., 46, and grandfather of
Bethel III, and has absolutely


no connection to the alleged
incident. He declined to com-
ment on his son and grandson's
name appearing on the report.
Neither of the two Bethels
listed on the report were avail-
able for comment.
Elsa Cobo, mother of Elsa
Degraffenreid, said the "inci-
dent stems from a family dis-
pute over internal family mat-
ters. The dispute led to an argu-
ment between Kevin
Degraffenreid, Harry Bethel Jr.
(suspect) and Harry Bethel the
3rd (suspect). Kevin said that
Harry Jr. was going to come.to
his house to do him harm," the
report reads.
"Degraffenreid also stated
that the relationship between
Sthe Bethels and his family had
been strained a couple months
ago after a bad real estate ven-
ture between the two," the affi-
davit reads.
Detective Randy Smith led
the police investigation and dis-
covered a squeegee wrapped in
a gasoline-dosed towel was lit
on fire and thrown onto the roof
on the Degraffenreids' home.
The Degraffenreids were
inside.
Key West Fire Inspector
Capt. Michael Davila is leading
the arson investigation.

It would.leave that 20

CFO Alex Sink said.
"That's serious," Sink said.
If no-fault expires, motorists
still will be required to carry lia-

to auto accidents regardless of
who is at fault. Drivers also can
buy bodily injury insurance to
cover additional injuries they
may cause to other people, but
it's not required because PIP cov-
ers at least part of that liability.
SSink and Gov. Charlie Crist

though, have argued the system is
so riddled with fraud that it
should be allowed to die.

- likely with new anti-fraud pro-
visions or pass a law to require
mandatory bodily injury cover-
age when it meets in a special
session to cut the state's budget.
Those hopes likely were
dashed when legislative leaders
announced they had indefinitely
postponed the session beyond a
previously announced target date
of Sept. 18.
The Safety Net Hospital
Alliance of Florida will shift its
focus to the 2008 regular session
if no-fault expires Oct. 1, said
Rich Rasmussen, a spokesman
for the organization. He said the
hospitals, which claim they stand
to lose $350 million a year treat-
ing uninsured accident victims,
will push for re-establishing no-
fault or some other form of
mandatory coverage.
Christopher Moya,
spokesman for Floridians for
Lower Insurance Costs, a group
that includes the state's major
auto insurers, downplayed the
significance of a bodily injury
requirement. That's because 92
percent of motorists already pur-
chase the optional liability cover-
age, he said.
"Making it mandatory really
is a wash when you consider that


somewhere between 6 and 8 per-
cent of Florida's drivers at the
present moment have no insur-
ance of any kind and are in viola-
tion of the law," Moya said.
He said other auto coverages
would pick up 80 percent of med-
ical expenses resulting from traf-
fic accidents even if no-fault
expires.
Besides fraud, insurers have
another problem with the present
no-fault system because there are
no limits on how much doctors
and hospitals can charge for vari-
ous procedures and tests.
Moya said no-fault might be
acceptable if lawmakers added a
fee schedule and limited proce-
dures, tests and lawyer fees, but
he said "that's a question for the-


Legislature."
Sink and Crist acknowledged
the insurance industry and trial
lawyers, who also oppose contin-
uing no-fault, appear to have the
upper hand in the contest for leg-
islative votes.
"If the Legislature doesn't
come to a consensus real soon it
doesn't look likely" no-fault can
be saved, Crist said.
The governor, though, said he
doesn't plan to prod the
Legislature by proposing his own
no-fault legislation.
"I have found it's better to
have a consensus than to attempt
to drive" lawmakers to action,
Crist said.
Sink agreed no-fault seems
headed for expiration.

Late scores boost Conchs


Time runs out
for Coral Shores
in 15-7 contest
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Late in a fourth quarter of fire-
works, everything boiled down to
Key West High School's fourth
down at the Coral Shores 13-yard
line.
The Hurricanes seemed to
have blunted a 50-yard drive by
the Conchs, turning a first-and-
goal at the 8 into a do-or-die
fourth down five yards farther
back.
Coral Shores had just taken a
7-3 lead on Randell Jackman's 32-
yard touchdown catch from quar-
terback Chris Rini. A stand here
would give the Canes the ball with
less than 2:30 on the clock.
Key West's Phillip Young, hav-
ing moved from tailback to quar-
terback, went over the left side of
the Conch offensive line. For a

on 11 carries. He also caught two
balls for 40 yards.
Martin said the Dolphins
kicked off, caused a fumble and
took possession early in the game
at the Wolves' 25-yard line. They
would score three plays later on a
quarterback sneak by White from
2 yards out to take an early 7-0
lead.
"It looked real easy and unfor-
tunately, the kids probably
thought so also," Martin said.
He said the Dolphins pinned
Deltona deep in its own territory
to start the next drive on a nice
kickoff and coverage play. On the
ensuing drive, the Wolves con-
verted on a fourth down before-
scoring a long touchdown.
Martin said that play set the
tone for the game.
"Every time they touched the
ball, they would get a long touch-
down. Our kids didn't come to
play, unfortunately," he said. "We
made more mental mistakes than
we've done in a long time."

Canes finding it tough

to earn a volleyball win


Keynoter Staff


Three matches into the regular
volleyball season,. the Coral
Shores Lady Hurricanes need a
win.
Finding it against District 16-
3A rival Archbishop Carroll at
home today could be difficult -
the Lady Bulldogs'recently upset
district favorite Gulliver Prep.
The varsity match starts at
approximately 5 p.m., after a 3:30
Sp.m. JV match.
"It looks like we're going to
face a new kind of Carroll team,"
Hurricane coach Andy Thiery
said.
Last year, Coral Shores racked
up 20 wins and reached the state
regionals. Things are different
this fall after an 0-3 start. Coral
Shores fell to Ransom Everglades


in three straight games Friday, 25-
20, 25-18, 25-22.
"We were up, 18-12, in the
third game but lost," Thiery said.
"Our defense is playing pretty
well. Offensively, we have to
improve at everything. We can't
finish points." '
Coral Shores is scheduled to
play a Miami tournament this
weekend, then travels to face
Carrollton Tuesday.
In other varsity action:
Coral Shores' cross-country
team travels to the Gulliver Prep
Invitational meet in Miami
Friday, then visits Westminster
Christian for a Tuesday dual
meet.
The Hurricane swim teams
prepare for their next scheduled
home meet, at 4 p.m. Sept. 20
against LaSalle.

Coral Shores coach Todd

Swimmer singing sweet tune


Band member
sets record
for swim team
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


A clarinetist in the Key West
High School band is now the
school record holder in the 100-
yard backstroke.
Sophomore Effie Ford per-
formed with the band Friday
night during the Conchs' football
game at Coral Shores.- She got
home past midnight and fewer
than eight hours later was back at
the Florida Keys Community
College pool.
Then, late in the Conchs'
swim meet with Westminster
Christian, she swam the 100
backstroke in 1:07.13 to break the
record of 1:07.52 set by Liza
Davia in 2000. (The state record
is 54.69 seconds.)
"I had a feeling I did it but
wasn't sure," Ford, a year-round
swimmer, said. "I looked up and
saw the board and thought it was
too good to be true. It's been my
goal for two-years."
She had come close Friday
afternoon, recording a then-per-
Isonal best of 1:08.6 in a meet
with St. Brendan before donning
her band uniform and heading to


the football game.
"I would like to see her do a
1:05 by the end of the season,"
Key West coach Lori Bosco said.
Ford's record swim was just
one of the highlights of
Saturday's meet for the Conch
girls' team, which had its two-
meet winning streak snapped by
the Warriors, 148-138.
Rachel Kohler won the 200
individual medley by 17 seconds,
Alessandra Hally won the 100
freestyle and Olivia Sangermano
won the 100 breaststroke.


-The 200 freestyle relay team
of Ford, Hally, Noelle Lark and
Nicole Mongelli also won for
Key West.
The Conch boys lost, 149-
103.
But Luke Knight won the 50
free and 100 free; Jake Brown
took the 100 backstroke and 50
free; and the team of Knight,
Brown, Max Kohler and Travis
Stokes won both the 200 free and
400 free relays.
Friday, the Conch girls defeat-
ed visiting St. Brendan, 122-46,
and the boys swam to a 79-79 tie
with the Sabres.

Conchs cutting scores


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


In the heavy-aired, green set-
ting of the first tee late Saturday
morning, with an assortment of
young eyes trained on him amid a
funereal quiet, Key West High
School golfer Blake Oropeza
swung' a 3-wood with perfect
form.
A resounding thwack broke the
silence and the ball became a dark
speck whistling toward a 250-yard
journey.
"Good shot," someone called
out, but Oropeza's face betrayed
no emotion. He jammed the club
into his bag, hoisted the bag onto
his shoulder and began the long
trek down the fairway.
Word filtered back that he


might have to tee off again
because the ball embedded like
an Easter egg in the right rough-
could not be found. It. eventually
was, and Oropeza went on to shoot
a 44 in a match against Charlotte
High at the Key West Golf Club.
Although the Conchs, in white
shirts and black shorts, lost 175-
176 after a one-hole playoff and
fell to 0-3, everyone seemed opti-
mistic.
"As a team, we've improved
12 strokes since the [opening]
match with Marathon," second-
year-coach Nora Laubenstein
said.
Without a senior and with a JV
team for the first time, the Conchs
have a new look, as does

JV Canes halve
their season

The junior-varsity
Hurricanes of Coral Shores play
half their football season
Thursday at Marathon High
School.
Because so many younger
Coral Shores players also suit
up for varsity action, Hurricane
officials this week cancelled all
but two games.

f' .ll d I i LI I Jrll r i Iff,


I
r-


The JV Canes will play
twice, at 4 p.m. Thursday at
Marathon, and 6 p.m. Sept. 27 at
home against Douglas. Both are
weeks when the Hurricanes do
not have a varsity game.
With seven seniors on the
active Coral Shores roster of 34
players, the Hurricanes need
younger players to compete in
the varsity games.
Coral Shores originally had
seven games on the JV football
schedule.


Laubenstein. "I get more respect
as a brunette," the former blonde
said with a laugh.
Oropeza, a junior who shot 40
Friday in a 169-175 loss to
Charlotte, has emerged as the No.
1 player, though he's being
pressed by freshman Jack
Lockwood, whose 43 led the way
Saturday. Rounding out the top
four are juniors Daniel Margil,
who shot 44 on Saturday, and
Casey Dion, whose 45 was
achieved after a breakfast of a
triple stack of pancakes and a
large omelet.
The players are improving,
Laubenstein said, because they're
learning from George Twyman
and Matt Harris, pros at the golf
club.
Laubenstein is assisted by the
pep-talk-oriented Steve Dion,
Casey's father. "We're going to
play golf today, right, boys?" he
said before Saturday's match.
Dion likes to remind the team
that every golf course, including
Key West's, with its ponds, ducks,
iguanas and bald eagle on 12, is
"one of Mother Nature's best
pieces of work."
The Conchs will play at 3 p.m.
today at North Miami Beach.

from Key West

estimated at 45
- pounds while fishing
Si with celebrity angler
:. -.: '.. Stu Apte in the
; .. ; Redbone S.L.A.M.,
Which just wrapped
S ~ "-.-. up in Key West. vfore
than $40,000 was
raised for the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation.
Baucher's 2-year-old
son has the disease.


Boggs robbed of title


Ellis admits
error in call
of the champion

With hundreds of Redbone-
sanctioned tournaments to Capt.
Gary Ellis' credit, even he makes
mistakes at times. Just don't make
one that robs baseball Hall of
Famer Wade Boggs of a tourna-
ment victory.
When the final day of fishing
came to a close Sunday in Key
West, the Mercury Redbone
S.L.A.M. saw two men tied atop
the celebrity division with 200
points.
Boggs, master of ceremonies
for the event, had caught a bone-
fish and permit on spin over the
two days and Mark Cooper, an
ex-Denver Bronco, caught a
bonefish on fly, matching Boggs'
point total of 200.
Ellis made the call to award
the celebrity-champion trophy
based on time, or who caught his
fish first. The title went to Cooper.
Boggs did not take the news
gently.
At the awards ceremony at the
Westin Key West, when hearing
-the news, Boggs was quoted as
saying, "I caught two fish and you
caught one and you win?" He
then grabbed the trophy and ran
out of the room.
Ellis said those who know
Boggs know there is a competi-
tive side to him that is dead seri-
ous. Maybe Boggs was joking,
maybe, not. The problem was,
Boggs was right. - -


While I was talking to Ellis
about the results, he realized his
error.






r f Wade was
Toramn W "Oh, I



It just
dawned on
me that
O I Wade was
right. The
grand -
champion
celebrity
has to be
W.a d e
Boggs
Cal Sutphin because he
caught- two
fish and Coop only caught one.
Oh, I've got to call Wade and tell
him he won."
That will be a tough call for
Ellis to make.
The' Mercury Redbone
S.L.A.M. (Southernmost Light-
Tackle Anglers Masters) generat-
ed roughly $40,000 from auction
items and donations over the
weekend.
The tournament is the, first in
an annual Florida Keys autumn
trilogy of Mercury Redbone
celebrity angling challenges that
raise money -for the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation.
Twenty-nine teams took to the
waters of Key West catching 14
permit, 24 bonefish and 27 tar-
pon, which was good for the con-
ditions, according to Ellis.
"There were a lot of storms to
dodge and visibility due to cloud
cover held sight fishing to a little
below- average.- Actually, there


were only three slams caught [tar-
pon, bonefish and tarpon by one
angler], which is below par for
this tournament."
Taking the grand-champion
honors in the non-celebrity divi-
sion was last year's Redbone
series grand' champion, Troy
Pruitt from Naples, fishing with
Capt. Rich Tudor from
Islamorada. Pruitt caught and
released five tarpon, three bone-
fish and a permit over the two
days.
Runner-up grand champion
was Moe Smith from Nashville,
fishing with Capt. Mark Krowka
of Islamorada.
Ladies' grand-champion
angler was Linda Denkert fishing
with her husband Dave, both from
Tavermier.
A special story from the
S.L.A.M. over the weekend has to
be Jeremy Baucher fishing with
celebrity angler Stu Apte of
Tavemier and-guided by Capt.
Sean O'Keefe out of Key West.
Baucher is from Florida and
has a 2-year-old son with CE He
was thrilled to be fishing with
Apte and managed only (please
realize this is sarcastic) a 35-
pound permit and 45-pound per-
mit, his first two ever caught.
Unbelievable.
Next up in the Redbone series
is the Baybone, being held in Key
Largo Sept. 28 to 30 and targeting
bonefish and permit.
