Massive amounts
of rainfall keep
the islands soggy
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Always surrounded by water,
parts of the Florida Keys seemed
in danger of going under water
during the week's heavy rains.
"The Upper Keys has just
been getting drenched," said
Chip Kasper, senior meteorolo-
gist at the National Weather
Service in Key West.
'A rain gauge at John
Pennekamp Coral Reef State


Park measured more than 6 inch-
es of rainfall in Key Largo from
midnight to 6 p.m. Monday
alone, Kasper said.
That came on the heels of a
Sept. 24-26 span that turned the
Middle and Upper Keys into a
soggy mess.
Marathon received a total of
6.17 inches of rain over those
three days, while Tavemier got
hit with 8.9 inches. Before.Sept.
24, all of September dropped
only 1.8 inches of rain on
Tavernier.
"On Sept. 26 alone, 5.28 inch-
es of rain fell at the Marathon air-

Tuesday, incumbent Mayor
Morgan McPherson and former
Mayor Jimmy Weekley found out
they'll be forced to run against
each other for the third time in


two years in a Nov. 6 runoff,
since none of the six candidates
running for that seat received a
majority vote.
That's not the only runoff,
though.
The District 4 race saw

Hialeah man
faces charges
in Keys incident

A Hialeah man remains jailed
in Key West with no bond stem-
ming from a shooting early
Sunday at Key Largo Ocean
Resorts in which a Miami man
was shot multiple times.
Jorge Correa, 40, is charged
with attempted murder and
aggravated battery. Luis
Figueroa, 41, is at Ryder Trauma
Center in Miami. He had been in
critical condition but reportedly


is improving.
According to the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, dis-
patchers received a call at 4 a.m.
from Figueroa's 9-year-old
daughter, reporting her father
had been shot at the trailer in
which they were staying.
Deputies found Figueroa
lying in the doorway of a travel
trailer bleeding profusely from
bullet wounds in his thigh and
back. He was taken to Mariners
Hospital, then airlifted to Ryder.
Deputy Becky Herrin said
deputies discovered the Correa


was staying at a nearby mobile
home and that they found blood
drops leading from the victim's
trailer to the suspect's. They also
found a gun they believe he used
to shoot Figueroa.
-Correa, who had cuts on his
forearm and bicep, reportedly
said there were three people on
the scene and one of them hit
him in the head, so he ran back
to his trailer and got the gun,
then shot Figueroa.
However, detectives say wit-
nesses tell differing stories about
what happened. But it does
appear the two argued.


Special session starts today


PIP coverage
expired Sunday,
on the agenda
By MARC CAPUTO
and MARY ELLEN KLAS
mcaputo@MiamiHerald.com

Gov. Charlie Crist made a
last-minute entrance into two
legislative feuds Monday,
ordering lawmakers to take up
the expired no-fault auto-insur-
ance law when they meet in spe-
cial session today.
He also prompted them to
hold another special legislative
session to fix a property-tax
proposal a judge invalidated.
The decision was one of cri-
sis management: The mandato-
ry personal-injury protection
known as PIP expired Sunday,
leaving drivers without cover-
age, and a judge last week can-
celed the Jan. 29 constitutional
amendment vote on property
taxes, saying the ballot wording
was misleading.
House Speaker Marco Rubio
of West Miami sounded the
alarm over both issues Friday in
an extraordinary letter to the
governor, asking him to show
"leadership" and use the power
of his office to put both matters
on the legislative agenda.
Rubio's biggest concern -
like that of the governor and
Legislature at large is prop-
erty taxes. He wants to rewrite
the amendment and perhaps
propose a new plan with bigger
savings.
But Senate President Ken


Pruitt who confirmed he
wants a separate session in the
coming weeks to deal with the
property-tax amendment -
doesn't want to take it up until
legislators finish cutting $1 bil-
lion from the budget in the spe-
cial session.
The collision of all these
issues could become messy as
lawmakers try to deal with bick-
ering special interests over auto
insurance, struggle over which
state programs to cut and wade
into a feud with the governor
over whether they will have a
role in approving a gambling
compact he's negotiating with
the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
Almost instantly Monday, a
confusing array of tax-cut
options left behind during
the spring session cropped
back up:
+ Crist declined to publicly
say what he wanted, but he
secretly revived talks about his
campaign pledge to double the
homestead exemption to
$50,000 and allow people to
transfer much of their Save Our
Homes tax cap to a new home.
Senate Democratic Leader
Steve Geller dusted off a similar
portability plan that would also
give tax breaks to waterfront
businesses and first-time home
buyers. He wants homeowners
to be able to take their Save Our
Homes tax savings when they
move.
The Senate's Republican
tax committee chairman, Mike
Haridopolos of Melbourne, said
he doesn't think Democrats


would go along with Rubio's
goal of rewriting the property-
tax amendment and putting, it
back on the Jan. 29 ballot. He
wants to focus on the other
phase of the property-tax pack-
age passed in June: cap local-
government revenue and require
cities,. counties and special tax-
ing districts to cut their tax rates
more steeply or face the loss of
state sales-tax money.
About 40 percent of munici-
palities statewide cast super-
majority votes to skirt the full
amount of the tax cuts the
Legislature had suggested, and
many are raising fees.
None in the Keys did that.
Key Colony Beach was a spe-
cial case. It did not have a
specifically ordered tax-cut rate
because the Legislature deemed
it financially responsible in past
years.
The governor has been defer-
ential to legislators on most
issues, but his decision to force
them to take up PIP marks the
first time he has used the force
of his office.
He said he believes lawmak-
ers are close to working out a
compromise to crack down on
fraud by creating a fee schedule
for health clinics, hospitals and
chiropractors who treat injured
drivers..
The agreement was ham-
mered out by the special-inter-
est groups meeting in his office.
The law that expired Monday
required drivers to carry
$10,000 in insurance coverage
to pay the medical expenses of
accident victims regardless of
fault.


Housing meet

A city workshop to brain-
storm incentives to offer peo-
ple w ho are conidernng mak-

Final days for the final rats?


Official says
only handful of
Gambians remain
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

They have proven a worthy
foe, but it appears officials
may finally be winning the
battle to eliminate Gambian
giant pouch rats from Grassy
Key.
Scott Hardin, exotic-species
coordinator for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission, says he
believes the invasive rodent's
population on the island has
dwindled significantly the past
few months..
S"I feel confident that we are
down-to a dozen or fewer, but
the last few get difficult. We
feel confident we won't have


to do any poison baiting for a
while," Hardin said.
Workers from the FWC and
U.S. Department of Agri-
culture have been observing,
trapping and baiting the ani-
mals since May.
Gambian rats are an African
species that can grow up to
nine pounds and reportedly
appeared on Grassy Key some-
time between 1999 and 2001,
when they were released by a
resident who had been breed-
ing them.
On Sept. 26, workers com-
pleted what Hardin said he
hopes will be a final round of
intensive baiting in the core
area where the rats are
believed to remain, along
Morton Street between
Peachtree and Guava avenues.
Hardin said he estimated as
many as 400 poisoned bait sta-


tions were deployed in that
area for nine days. They were
baited with grains soaked in
oil of cantaloupe and mixed
with a zinc-phosphide toxi-
cant.
SHardin said he knew anoth-
er baiting cycle was necessary
when workers live-trapped
some two dozen Gambian rats
following an initial six-week
program using more than
1,000 stations throughout the
island.
Most of the population was
believed to be eradicated, but
Hardin said the remaining rats
changed their pattern of behav-
ior. He said the rats began to
stay near homes and exhibited
less movement than in the
past.
"Their nature, or habits, or
what they could have learned
combine to make the last ones
really elusive," he said.
Meanwhile, Hardin said he


has received-several calls from
Marathon residents believing
they spotted a Gambian rat. In
each case it turned out to be a
possum, but Hardin said work-
ers will continue to investigate
any lead.
"We're down to wanting to
check out any reasonable
sighting. We need to know so
we can put out more traps," he
said.
Hardin said USDA staff will
remain in the Keys through
most of October before pulling
back until after the new year.
"There will be someone
there to investigate sightings
and work with traps. Unless a
bunch of tats show up and sur-
prise us we'll really throttle
down in November and
December and come back in
January," he said.
Any resident who spots a
Gambian rat should call (866)
484-7586.

Man accused of child rapes


More than 30
counts expected;
3 kids involved
A Key West man is m cus-
tody in Osceola County charged
with raping two children there
and also faces 30 counts of sex-
ual battery on a young girl in
Monroe County.
Calvin Venuto, 62, allegedly
had sexual relations with an 8-
year-old girl multiple times in
Osceola County and with a 10-
year-old boy in that same county.
In Monroe, he is accused of


having sexual
relations at
least 30 times
in a little over
a month's
time with the
same 8-year-
old girl the
past summer.
VENUTO When she
returned
home to Osceola County, she
told her father what happened
and reported it to the Osceola
County Sheriff's Office. An
investigator with that agency


contacted the Monroe County
Sheriff's office Crimes Against
Women and Children's Unit and
a joint investigation begun.
Monroe Deputy Becky
Herrin said Venuto, in the
meantime, left the Keys and
traveled to Texas, then to North
Carolina. When he heard a war-
rant was issued for his arrest in
Osceola, he surrendered to
authorities in North Carolina
and was returned to Florida to
face the charges.
He allegedly admitted to
having sexual relations with the
children and indicated he'd
committed similar crimes with
children as young as 4.
Investigations are continuing.
,Once he faces charges in
Osceola, he will be returned to
Monroe to face the charges
here.
Detectives say anyone with
information about Venuto's
past behavior should contact
them immediately at 289-
2410. Callers who want to
remain anonymous can call
Crime Stoppers of the Florida
Keys. Callers to Crime
Stoppers are eligible for a cash
reward if their information
leads to further ,felony
charges. The hotline number is

Keys lobster hearings

are Monday, Tuesday


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Don't make a bad situation
worse by eliminating more lob-
ster traps, commercial fishermen
will tell fishery managers at local
lobster-rule workshops Monday
and Tuesday.
"The catch this year is a lot
slower than anyone predicted. It's
been super slow so far,"
Tavemier commercial fisherman
Matt Dettmann said. "Taking
more traps out of the fishery is
not going to help anybody."
Staff with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission comes to Monroe
County for public sessions on
lobster at 6 p.m. Monday in the
Marathon Government Center
and 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
Comments from the meetings
will be used, along with results
from an invitation-only online
survey, to assess reaction to draft
plans for the most sweeping revi-
sion of Florida lobster rules in
decades.
Commercial fishermen say
their overriding concern is that
the state not resume cutting the
number of lobster-trap licenses.
"Everybody is concerned
about losing more traps,"
Islamorada fisherman Rich


Keys briefs


Burglary suspect
arrested on warrant

Key West police officer Dan
Jones arrested a man on a parole
violation stemming from burgla-
ry charges after he found the
man loitering in a neighborhood
that has experienced several
recent burglaries.
Jones was on patrol in the
area of Washington and Tropical
Streets around 12:30 a.m.
Saturday when he saw Vernon
Brown, 50, riding his bike with-
out a light.
Then around 1:45 a.m., he
saw Brown riding in the area of
Tropical and Seminary streets.
Brown has an active warrant
out of New Jersey for burglary,
so he was arrested.


Russell said. "The industry has
surrendered quite a few traps
over time."
The state launched a trap-
reduction plan in 1993 to lower
the number of lobster traps used
by the -state's fishing fleet.
Estimates then put the number of
traps in use at 800,000 to more
than 1 million.
Biologists believed the same
average harvest of 5 million to 6
million pounds could be taken
with as few as 250,000 traps.
Citing the need to reduce trap
congestion on the water and raise
the catch-per-trap yield, rule
makers implemented a trap-
license program to steadily lower
the number of traps toward a tar-
get of 400,000.
But hurricanes and horrible
harvests caused the reductions to
be delayed and eventually halted
at the current level of 480,000
traps. Now some advocate restor-
ing the reduction plan.
"There were some early bene-
fits" in catch-per-trap improve-
ments, Russell said, "but it's been
a case of diminishing returns for
a long time."
"I don't see it being that
crowded [with traps] out there,"
Dettmann said.
"We're finally starting to get
some younger guys coming into
the industry by buying out [trap
licenses] from older guys," he
said. "They've been saving up all
this money to get into the busi-
ness, and now some people want
to take traps away from them."
A state notice on the lobster
workshops said, "All aspects of
commercial and recreational lob-
ster management will be dis-
cussed, including allocation of
landings between fishing sectors,
season length, license fees, the
special two-day sport season and
other related issues."
Many residents in Monroe
County have urged the state to
find a better method of limiting
July's two-day sport mini-season
divers to their legal limit of 12
lobsters.
A 6 p.m. Oct. 10 meeting also
will be held at South Miami
Middle Community on South-
west 60th Street.
Other sessions are planned in
Fort Pierce, Fort Myers, Orlando
and St. Petersburg.

has approved a $35.4 million cap
on a sewer project that will serve
Big Coppitt, Rockland and
Geiger keys. Now it's up to
Monroe County to write the
checks.
"Our interlocal agreement
with the county agrees how much
the county needs to commit to get
this project done," utility
Executive Director Jim Reynolds
said. "Not until they do this do
we feel comfortable with moving
ahead."
The collection system for the
project is already under construc-
tion. It's the sewer plant on
Rockland Key that could be held
up until the county begins appro-
priating funds, he said.
The $35.4 million includes the
total cost of a wastewater plant on
Rockland Key and the pipes con-
necting it to all regional house-
holds and businesses, about'1,500
connections in all.
In August, the Aqueduct
Authority opened construction
bids on the sewer plant.
Construction of the plant alone
will run close to $11 million.
According to the existing
agreement, signed a year ago, the
county has already paid $5 mil-
lion toward the project. That
agreement also locked the county


into paying $15 million for the
collection system. However,
according to a resolution passed
by the Aqueduct Authority board
Thursday, the County
Commission has not yet appro-
priated that money.
Residents of the area will pay
around a combined $127,000 in
the coming year through a munic-

ipal taxing district, a temporary
tax imposed to help pay for the
sewer installation.
In May, the county's sewer
project manager, Liz Wood, told
the County Commission that
county infrastructure sales tax
funds would account for a big
part of the cost of the project.
"The county must book $27
million on Big Coppitt in order to
borrow $11 million" from the
state's revolving fund, she said.

Video helps lead
to robbery suspect

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives arrested a Key
Largo man Thursday, charging
him with the armed robbery of a
convenience store Aug. 4.
Robert Shepard, 32, was
arrested at his home on Snapper
Lane in Key Largo on a warrant
for armed robbery.
He's accused of robbing a
Key Largo Circle K. Following
the robbery, witnesses were able
to give officers a clear descrip-
tion of Shepard and of the car he


was driving, a green Ford
Explorer. Videotape from a sur-
veillance camera backed up their
description and captured the
vehicle on tape when Shepard
pulled up to gas pumps outside
the store earlier that evening,
prior to the robbery, Deputy
Becky Herrin said.
Lead Detective Don Dalton
reviewed Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles records, which led him
to Shepard as a possible suspect.
Two convenience store clerks
who were the robbery. victims
picked him out of a photo lineup.


Local officials are counting on
the state to help finance a chunk
of what could eventually add up.
to $500 million in sewer projects
Keyswide.
The county and Aqueduct
Authority signed an agreement in
2006 in which the FKAA agreed
to oversee the project while the
county took responsibility for
financing. The FKAA is the lead
agency for all sewer projects in
unincorporated Monroe County
except Key Largo, which has its
own sewer board.
Lower Keys residents
received notices in mid-
September notifying them of a
$4,500 assessment to hook up to
the system. The assessment will
offset the overall expense of the
.project by close to $7 million.
In March, the County
Commission voted to include 74
homes on Shark Key in the pub-
lic funding for the project, a
move that added an estimated
$2.1 million in order to lay the
pipelines necessary to connect
the luxury neighborhood.
The Keys are under a state
mandate to have the entire coun-
ty hooked up to sewers by 2010.

ey._ Opinion


"- 1 o I -


So far, so good for '07 -

storm bells remain silent
Well, we made it through September. Only two more months to go
on the hurricane lookout routine that begins June 1 and ends Nov. 30.
By now, most folks recognize that forecasters with the National
Hurricane Center and independent weather experts at Colorado State
University do their best to estimate the potential storm activity each
season.
Some years, however, their predictions are way off. Last year is a
good example.
Colorado State's William Gray predicted 2006 would be an above-
normal year for hurricanes, gazing into his crystal ball and seeing nine
hurricanes of which five would be major.
Ah, that didn't happen.
Instead, 2006 produced five named 'canes and only two with winds
strong enough to be rated major.
So the news Tuesday that Gray has amended his 2007 hurricane fore-
cast should come as no surprise. Weather forecasting, after all,.isn't an
exact science.
But it is a shame that his revised predictions don't seem to get the
same media attention as the initial May alarms that go off like clock-
work.
Here in the Keys, which are listed on his target scope as bulls-eye
central, we are impacted by the hurricane predictions even when we
are lucky enough to escape any major storms.
Hotel bookings are like a barometer in that regard.
When the forecasts call for above-normal storm threats, bookings
respond by falling, almost like the barometric pressure in advance of a
hurricane event.
And that hurts our summer season economy, which this year as been
as tough as many longtime hoteliers and restaurant owners can remem-
ber.
So spread the word as best you can to all you know, especially to
friends up north.
Measured by strength and duration, September's storm activity is the
least active in the Atlantic since 1997, according to the National
Hurricane Center.
Now that's news worth making a big noise about.

Salary timing is curious

The results of the Key West election will be in by the time you read
this.
Suffice it to say, we'll be interested in parsing how an 1 th-hour cost-
of-living raise for all Key West.city employees played out at the polls
Tuesday.
On top of step increases and longevity pay, the City Commission lis-
tened to Mayor Morgan McPherson's call for an across-the-board pay
hike, passing a 4.2 percent raise late Friday on the eve of the election.
It still needs a second reading and vote to become policy.
But at a time when local governments are tightening their belts, the
timing of that largesse raises lots of questions.

Even big business recognizes
EDITOR:.
President Bush is attempting to convince world
leaders that setting voluntary goals to reduce green-
house gas emissions is an adequate response to global
warming. Voluntary goals were tried in 1990 and
failed. Rio Earth Summit's voluntary goals were never
achieved. Bush's strategy is like setting voluntary
highway speed limits they don't work.
We need binding international treaties that hold
nations and global corporations accountable for their
greenhouse gas pollution and create strong market
incentives to reward non-polluters. A carbon tax, cap
and trade system is the only realistic option for reach-
ing the necessary 80 percent cuts in emissions by
2050.
Surprisingly, many in American business, not just
environmentalists, oppose Bush's plan. General
Motors, General Electric, Dupont, BP, Shell and
PepsiCo have joined together with others to form the
U.S. Climate Action Partnership. They support the
necessary 80 percent cuts by 2050.
Why? Because they know that curbing emissions
is inevitable and necessary. They want long-term cer-
tainty about the price set on emissions so they can
plan for the future. For example, a high-carbon tax
would change the economic feasibility of building
more dirty coal plants.


climate change
Gov. Charlie Crist, state Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink and Miami Mayor Manny Diaz are just a
few of our forward-thinking leaders who recognize
global warming as not only a challenge, but as an
_opportunity to create new technology, industry and
jobs. In the Keys, we can be proud that all municipali-
ties have signed the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection
Agreement.
On.Oct. 1, the city of Key West was to begin a for-
mal energy audit to take inventory of how we use
energy as a city and community, and to determine the
amount of greenhouse gases we create. This is a neces-
sary first step toward learning how to become a more
efficient, cost-effective and sustainable community.
State and local governments cannot do this alone.
It will take action at all levels of society to show the
world that Americans are finally serious about doing
our part. Congress must help by passing a comprehen-
sive, sustainable energy bill this year and by agreeing
to cap our greenhouse gas emissions in the near
future.
Unfortunately, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has
not yet supported global-warming legislation. You can
help. Let her know you want her to wake up, step up
and lead in seeking climate and energy solutions. Call
her at (305) 220-3281.

Insurance program is all about votes


EDITOR:
Re: Publisher Wayne Markham's column about
the State Children's Health Insurance Program: He is
absolutely right.
It is all about politics, and he couldn't help him-
self go to the politics immediately after distorting the
truth.

Rider problems can be fixed
EDITOR:
In response to Mary Micir's letter about bus rid-
ers' behavior at the Brass Monkey, it s a shame that
the Brass Monkey Lounge and Package Store is
being used as a bathhouse of sorts. Owner Judy
Sorenson has every right to be concerned and to just
say no.
Loitering, littering and urinating in public are
against the law and enforceable offenses. This is a
great disgrace and poses an unsafe and unhealthy sit-
uation for the nearby Eastwind Apartments families
as well as passersby.
We all pay taxes, which includes police protec-
tion. A simple demand of a daily police patrol should
alleviate this issue. I know, my head must be in the
clouds. You can bet paradise towns on the mainland
don't tolerate this type of behavior from anyone.
Recently a much-needed bus shelter was erected.
A covered shelter, bike rack and park bench on a
concrete slab are there to ensure riders have a safe
place to wait. A fence divides the bus-stop area from
the adjacent parking lot. Yet it is still not adequate.
More seating and bright lights are needed as well as
a posted bus schedule on the shelter wall panel.
And finally, there should be more bus shelters in
Marathon, including ones for students who wait in
the rain and hot sun for their buses. It is my under-
standing that the reason there are virtually no bus
shelters is to deter the homeless from sleeping in
them. Well, then, we need to take better care of our
resident homeless, but that is another letter.
Nancy Auten
Grassy Key.


First, it's not just cigarette makers; maybe he
should listen to Cigar Dave. The tax increase also
affects all cigars and some cigars would increase by
$10 or more. Needless to say, Cigar Dave, not the
tobacco companies, is leading a campaign to stop
this bill before it reaches the president.
The Democratic Congress not only wants to cover
poor children in this bill, but individuals up to 25
years of age, including parents of children not even
considered impoverished.
So you see, it has nothing to do with the children
on the Democrat side of the argument. Instead, it has
everything to do with votes, power and growing gov-
ernment.
As an aside, I work for a major drug-store chain.
Many of the people on Medicaid and Medicare are
buying high-end jewelry, clothes, sunglasses and
automobiles rather than buying medical insurance. I,
on the other hand, can't afford those luxuries because
I am being taxed to pay for their medical care. Fair? I
think not.
-Oh, by the way, you forgot to mention the multi-
billion-dollar fraud in Medicaid and Medicare in just
three South Florida counties alone.

Runoffs set for mayoral seat, District 4, Utility Board


ELECTION / From I

had 8.82 percent of the votes,
enough to push Gibson and
Klitenick to a runoff.
"For a lawyer, it's very weird
to be speechless," Klitenick said,
baffled by the close race.
And in the Utility Board


Group 1 race, former city planner
Ty Symroski led with 2,390
votes, or 38.87 percent. Bizarrely,
outgoing City Commissioner
Harry Bethel and real estate bro-
ker Charles Lee both scored the
exact-same number of votes,
1,879, or 30.56 percent.
A recount is set for this morn-
ing. The Supervisor of Elections

would still own the land under-
neath the buildings. It would
have 40 assisted-care units and
95 independent-living units
between Southard and Angela
streets for seniors of varying
income levels.
Organizers of the Florida
Keys Assisted Living Coalition
say they hope it will be up and
operating by 201.0 or 2011.
Proponents of the site say the
Truman Waterfront is the place
where there is enough land to
build the facility, which would
accept applications from resi-
dents from Vaca Cut in Marathon
south through Key West.
Opponents say that's hogwash
and that this would really be mere
waterfront living for some of the
islands' wealthy, subsidized by
the city's donation of land.
Sizes would vary from 400
square feet for an assisted-living
unit to 1,200 square feet for a
two-bedroom, two-bath inde-
pendent-living unit.
The larger units would cost
from $200,000 to $1.5 million.
The smaller ones would go from
$1,000 to $4,900 monthly.
At a Hometown! Political
Action Committee forum in late
August, Florida Keys* Assisted
Living Care Coalition co-
Chairwoman Joan Higgs and
Treasurer Peter Batty spoke out
against communal "cynicism"
surrounding the plan.
"We're more than doubling
the number of units available to
the very poor," Batty said
Tuesday afternoon. "In order to
make it work for the poor, you
have to have people of all eco-
nomic levels living there."
Supporters have said the proj-
ect would provide more than 50
jobs for people in housekeeping,
maintenance, hospitality and
food service.


But opponents disagree with
the entire concept.
"In my personal opinion," res-
ident Robert Kelly said, "it's an
imbalance of market-rate [hous-
ing] and affordable units."
Batty said during a campaign
issues forum that if the referen-
dum failed, the whole concept
would quietly dissolve.

Nov. 6 referendums
The Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust has its
chance to gain 6.6 acres at the
Truman Waterfront when voters
decide in the Nov. 6 runoff elec-
tion whether to allow the group to
proceed with -a project that
includes a proposed 60 to 70
affordable homes with rents
priced from $875 to $1,250.
The Land Trust also has plans
for trade schools, an art and con-
vention center and retail space.
Another question for voters in
the Nov. 6 runoff election regards
land annexation.
A referendum calling for a
revision to the city charter would
change it to read, "Annexation or
acquisition by any means of any
and all real property may only be
by a vote of the electors of the
city."
The referendum spawned
from the Wisteria Island
Committee, which rallied at post
offices, outside stores and in
other places to get the required
number of certified signatures on
a petition to place the question on
the ballot.
The committee is a response to
a resolution brought before the
City Commission in the summer
that would have allowed the city to
annex the 21.5-acre island that lies
about 2,200 feet off Duval Street.
The goal was property-tax
expansion based upon expected
future development.
Christmas Tree Island's cur-
rent tax assessment is $235,659.

Johnston after one four-year
term; District 2 Commissioner
Mark Rossi, who handily defeat-
ed challenger Todd German; and
the other Utility Board candi-
dates.
In the mayoral race, Weekley
received 3,121 of the 6,342 votes,
or 49.21 percent, cast in that race

percent.
SThe other four candidates,
writer Sloan Bashinsky, rharine
repairman J. George Claing, VIP
Nutrition owner Rolland

the rest.
When McPherson beat
Weekley, then the incumbent, in

5,388 cast.
Of Tuesdays' results,


McPherson, speaking on
Comcast Cable, said, "That won't

the votes with 850, unseating
incumbent Menendez, who col-
lected 14 percent of votes with
177. Historic preservation con-
sultant Vincent Mancini drew
about 16 percent, or 200 total
votes.
In District 2, Rossi rolled with
61 percent of the votes, or 429.
German, in his first political cam-
paign, claimed 39 percent of the
vote with 273 total.
"Today [Rossi] had an army of
people," German said on

port," according to a Weather
Service advisory, "the highest
amount recorded in a single day
since Aug. 26, 2005, when rain
bands of Hurricane Katrina pro-
duced 7.15 inches."
Water lapped over parts of
U.S. 1 north of Key Largo at
times last week.
"It looked like a combination
of the rain and the full-moon high
tide," said Deputy Becky Herrin,
spokeswoman for the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Boats stayed tied to docks
while traffic slowed to a crawl
during the downpour Monday.
"We canceled our Monday
trips," said Brenda Mace from
Conch Republic Divers in
Tavemier. "In that kind of rain,
there's just no way we leave the
dock. It's definitely not diveable
weather."
At the Key Colony Beach
Marina charter docks, Capt.
Fuzzy Francois of Big Conch
Charters expected to stay put.
"The weather hasn't affected us
too bad because we're kind of
slow anyway," he said. "We take
it as it comes right now."
The state Department of
Transportation's message signs in


the Upper Keys warned of possi-
ble flooding at mile marker 108,
but Monday traffic seemed to
flow smoothly if slowly, accord-
ing to reports.
"We had a report of a problem
at mile marker 112 but it checked
out OK, better than it was last
week," Herrin said.
Construction projects were
affected, but contractors at the
installation of a new water
pipeline in Tavemier "didn't lose
a day," said a Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority spokes-
woman. "They changed things
around but they're still on sched-
ule." .
No damages were reported
from the heavy rains or lightning
strikes in the area Monday.
The rains were not the result
of a particular tropical storm but
"one of those strange systems
that jump up in September,"
Kasper said.
Winds from the southeast
brought "high amounts of atmos-
pheric moisture into the area,"
according to the Weather Service.
Rainfall varied throughout the
Keys. Monday, Key West regis-
tered "barely a trace," he said.
"The Upper Keys were
ground zero for both these rain
events," he said.
The weather system moved


west into the Gulf of Mexico by
Tuesday, but more rain could fall
on the Keys through the end of
.the week.
"It won't be like it was but
more of a hit-or-miss thing,"
Kasper said.
After heavy rains, the Monroe
County Mosquito Control
District urges residents to check
for water that may have collected
in boats or metal containers.

Hurricane update
The hurricane-forecast team at
Colorado State University
revised its expectations down-
ward for the remainder of the sea-
son Monday.
October and November could
still see two hurricanes, one of
them- major, cautioned the team
founded by Dr. William Gray.
"We expect October-
November to be very active,"
said Phil Klotzbach, now the lead
author of the hurricane forecast.
September saw a high number
of named storms form with eight,
but they tended to break apart
without reaching hurricane
strength.. The combined strength
and duration of those storms
caused September 2007 turned
out to be the least active
September in a decade.

DEP wants public input


Fort Zach plan
getting update
after 10 years
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The crumbling brick of Fort
Zachary Taylor in Key West
tends to get less public attention
than do the gradually disappear-
ing Australian pines at the state
park, but both are part of a new
management plan being unveiled
Oct. 15.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is
holding a public workshop at the
Harvey Government Center
beginning at 7 p.m. to take public
input on the plan.
"It's something we do at least
every 10 years," DEP Information
Director Katie Flanagan said.
The last plan was issued in
1999. It included a stipulation that
all exotic plant species, including
the pines, be removed. Since then,
the local group Save Our Pines
has slowed the eradication.
After wrangling for years, the
state finally acquiesced to local
desires, agreeing to remove just a
few trees each year, relying on
attrition rather than eradication to
get rid of them.
"I don't want to see them
taken out at all," said local busi-
nessman Chris Belland, who


plans to speak up at the work-
shop. "If you look around this
island, if you took out non-native
species, you'd denude the entire
island. We have this wonderful
shade canopy that the community
wants. For the state to override
the people is just wrong."
According to Flanagan, the
plan includes provisions to


The park

section of
both cultural
and natural
resources.


remove 10 percent of the trees
annually, "gradually eliminating
the invasives and restoring native
vegetation."
"Save Our Pines is extremely
concerned about the state's unre-
lenting move toward commer-
cializing the park," Save Our
Pines said in prepared statement
Tuesday. "This once peaceful,
natural environment is becoming
dotted with rental huts."
The management plan calls


for a 1,000-square-foot pavilion
to be constructed on the eastern
point of the park where most of
the park's wedding ceremonies
are held.
"Our mission is to provide
resource-based recreation while
preserving, interpreting and
restoring Florida's cultural and
natural resources," Flanagan said.
"It's a balancing act."
With the fort and adjacent
beach, the park offers a cross sec-
tion of both cultural and natural
resources. According to a check-
list in the new plan, accomplish-
ments over the past several years
include:
Documenting migratory
birds and butterflies that use the
park.
+ Expansion of the conces-
sion facility.
Acquisition of an additional
1.5 acres for the park from U.S.
.Navy property.
+ Expansion of Civil War
Heritage Days.
Installation of a butterfly
garden.
Renourishment of the shore-
line.
Flanagan said it's crucial the
local community turn out and
weigh in on the plan, which is
just what Belland intends to do.
"I plan to be there and talk
about the rules of society," he
said. "This is a community that
should be allowed to decide what
is best for their own welfare."

DCA secretary

agrees with judge


Tier system
to be tweaked
a little more
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Local environmentalists are
lauding a decision by the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs they say will go a long
way to preserving Keys habitat.
In a final order issued on Sept.
26, DCA Secretary Tom Pelham
denied several challenges to an
administrative law judge's rec-
- ommended order that came out in
, June.
Pelham's order finalizes a rul-
ing by Administrative Law Judge
Donald Alexander, which will
force the county to revise some
aspects of its controversial tier
land-mapping system.
SPelham upheld the judge's rul-
ing that the tier system's four-
acre threshold for protection is
arbitrary.
"This means they will have to
reexamihe some of the maps,"
said Dennis Henize, a board
member of Last Stand. "The
judge was clear that the maps
must be based on science rather
than just boundaries based on
arbitrary acreage."
The county has been working


for close to three years to institute
the tier system, which would con-
trol growth in the coming years.
It categorizes vacant parcels
into one of three tiers based upon
environmental sensitivity, Tier 1
being the most sensitive and Tier
3 the most desirable for building.
The system is designed to replace
the county's rate-of-growth ordi-
nance, which controls growth
based upon a point system and
hurricane evacuation times.
In 2006, Last Stand and the
Florida Keys Citizens Coalition-
challenged the proposed tier sys-
tem, saying it does not do enough
to protect sensitive Keys habitat.
Together, they filed the challenge
to it with the state's Division of
Administrative Hearings.
Alexander ruled on the chal-
lenge June 16.
Pelham's order upholds all of
the judge's findings and denies
two requests each by the environ-
mentalist groups and the county to
modify the recommended order. -
In one, Last Stand and the
Citizens Coalition asked that
"certain parcels be given a Tier 1
designation because they contain
wetlands," Pelham wrote in the
final order.
He denied the request, saying
wetlands are adequately protect-
ed in the county's land plan.

Refuge wants fire input


Interviews
to be held
starting Monday
To address what it says is a
need to restore fire-dependent
habitats and reduce the threat of
Lower Keys wildfires, the
National Key Deer Refuge is in
the process of reviewing- and
adapting its fire management
program.
Refuge officials say many of
the 22 federally listed plants
and animals in the refuge are
supported by "fire-adapted"
ecosystems such as coastal salt-
marsh and imperiled pine rock-
lands.
The use of fire to maintain
these habitats has been contro-
versial, resulting in the incon-
sistent application of intentional
burs and the build-up of what
are called high fuel loads, or dry
foliage susceptible to wildfires.
Threats posed to both feder-
ally protected species and
humans living in the affected
areas make public participation
in the creation of a comprehen-
sive fire- management program


critical, officials say.
Toward that end, refuge offi-
cials and researchers from
Texas A&M University have
teamed to develop a fire man-
agement-outreach-program. The
goal is to balance the use of
intentional fires to get rid of
brush that could start wildfires
with public sentiment and con-
cern for fire management.
Texas A&M University
researchers and refuge staff will
conduct informal one-on-one
interviews. Participants will be
asked to identify issues associ-
ated with fire management and


managing fire-dependent
ecosystems, provide input on
best fire management practices,
and describe the role of the pub-
lic in reviewing and implement-
ing the fire management pro-
gram at the refuge.
Information gathered from
the interviews will be used to
develop a public fire manage-
ment workshop to be held
Nov. 3.
Those interested in being
interviewed, attending a work-
shop or other aspects of the fire
management outreach program
should contact Paige Schmidt at
304-9623. Interviews will be
scheduled for next week.

Cop recognizes driver
as sex offender
A Summerland Key man was
jailed on several charges, includ-
ing failing to register as a sex
offender, after being spotted in
the school zone of Sugarloaf
School at 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
Deputy Becky Herrin from the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
said school resource office Sonya

es and longevity pay, rather than
that allowance being built into

The cost of living raises are
4.2 percent. To make that happen,
$447,341 must be set aside from
reserves that carried over-from
the 2006-07 budget.
"The commission wanted to
make that statement, that this is
the money we are going to com-
mit," Scholl said
The commission adopted the
budget Sept. 19, with each com-
missioner voting in favor except
Mayor Morgan McPherson. He
wanted to earmark money in
reserves for increased raises that
night.

The millage rate means the

$1,017.70 in city property taxes.

Key West city commissioners

Research firm

says occupancy
up in August
By DOUGLAS HANKS
dhanks@miamiherald.com


With hurricane barrages a
more distant memory, South
Florida hotels posted impres-
sive gains in August amid a sec-
ond storm-free summer.
A report issued Sept. 24


showed more demand for hotel
rooms throughout the region:
Occupancy surged 10 percent in
Miami-Dade, while the
Broward market recorded its
first monthly occupancy gain in
nine months.
The Florida Keys saw a
whopping 24 percent increase
in hotel occupancy, according
to Smith Travel Research.
"We had a great summer,"
said Bob Arman, general man-


ager of the Marquesa Hotel in
Key West. "It went remarkably
well."
The impressive August num-
bers reflect some of the
headaches hotels suffered a year
ago, when memories of
Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma's
2005 attacks were still fresh in
travelers' minds.
Occupancy dropped 17 per-
cent in the Keys, and between 8
and 9 percent in Broward and

FCC debunks
rumor about
telemarketers
McClatchy Tribune

Contrary to a dire warning
making the rounds of the
Internet, your private cell-
phone number is not about to be
released to telemarketers.
This is e-mail spam that
refuses to die.
Every few months, a variant


of the message warns recipients
that telemarketers are about to
get their cell numbers; next
they'll be calling with solicita-
tions, then charging for the
calls.
None of that is true.
The Federal Communica-
tions Commission receives so
many worried calls from the
public that it issued a consumer
advisory to dispel the myth.
There is no scheme afoot to
disseminate private cell-phone


numbers, FCC spokeswoman
Rosemary Kimball said. It's
illegal for telemarketers to
place automated calls to mobile
phones, she said.
Giving rise to these fears is
the wireless industry's project
to create a directory of cell-
phone numbers. The project has
stalled, and it would have been
voluntary, anyway: No number
would be listed unless it were
submitted by a cell-phone user
who wanted-the number listed.

Keys rates South Florida's highest


HOTELS / From 12

Miami-Dade counties' in August
2006. Many hoteliers said that
while hurricane jitters continue
to hurt business, the memories
don't appear to be quite as long
this summer.
"We were pretty busy sur-
prisingly so," said Anidreas
Ioannou, general manager of
the Hilton Fort 'Lauderdale
Beach Resort.
The fuller hotels didn't come
from price cuts: Hotels boosted
rates in August between 8 and
10 percent, with the Keys
charging the most at $160 a
night.
Still, higher rates appear to
be cutting into bookings this
year, with demand for South
Florida rooms down between 3
and 6 percent, according to the
Smith Travel.report. But with
fewer guests paying more for
their overnight stays, hotel
taxes are up 6 percent in
Miami-Dade, 3 percent in
Broward and 4 percent in the
Keys.
Hurricanes continue to have


an impact on the summer sea-
son, which officially ended
Sunday, and the start of fall -
considered South Florida's
slowest stretches for tourism.
Though leisure travelers may
put their hurricane worries on
hold when the tropics spare
Florida, meeting planners tend
to be more cautious, hoteliers
said.
And with forecasters track-
ing two storms in the Atlantic
amid predictions of an unusual-
ly active October in the tropics,


storm worries remain a problem
for hotels.
At Aventura's Fairmont
Turnberry Isle, General
Manager Darrell Sheaffer
offered a wan "OK" to describe
August's business. Sheaffer has
seen conferences leave Florida
for Arizona and California, but
hopes another uneventful storm
season will halt that trend.
"It's only natural," he said,
"that if nothing happens, they'll

Dialing still allowed


PHONE / From 12

Telemarketers would be
barred from making automated
calls to a listed cell-phone num-
ber, though they can legally call
cell phones if they manually
dial the phone number.

A toast to public speaking


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Jack Thorley was an anxious
kid.
When teachers called-on him
to answer questions, he sunk
down into his desk; presenting to
his class meant another chest-
thumping, sweaty-hand experi-
ence.
His fear of public speaking
followed him into adulthood,
where it affected his professional.
career. So he decided it was time
to become a Toastmaster.
Thorley, a 48-year-old vice
president and commercial lender
at Marine Bank in Islamorada,
joined the international public-
speaking group about nine
months ago and recommends
membership to anyone looking to
bolster their professional lives.
Now he works his audiences
with confidence and poise while
giving weekly presentations pro-
moting loan approvals. What
used to be "a panicked situation"
for Thorley has morphed into
something "completely comfort-
able.
"What Toastmasters does is
flex a muscle that you haven't
used," Thorley said. "And
because of that, what used to be
an anxious moment becomes a
routine thing."
In 1924, the organization,


aimed at improving leadership
and speaking skills, began at a
YMCA in Santa Anna, Calif.
Since its inception, it boasts 4
million members worldwide.
Middle Keys chapter President
Kelly Carter hopes other Keys
residents recognize the impor-
tance of communication in their
careers and personal lives.
At one time, State Attorney
Mark Kohl was an active mem-
ber, practicing his legal speeches
with the group. Members learned
a lot from Kohl, which is how
the class is intended to operate:
everyone brings something to the
table.
Starting Oct. 11, the group,
which has been meeting at a real-
estate office, will meet at Marine
Bank at mile marker 81 to
accommodate more interested
members in the Upper Keys.
Vice President of Education
Cheryl Rolle said the sessions,
which meet the second and fourth
Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m.,
are active learning environments.
Members can't get away with-
just sitting through lectures, she
said. Rather, participants are
challenged to give impromptu
speeches on random topics, cri-
.tique one another and accentuate
each other's positive speaking
habits to establish a comfortable,
confident classroom.
They still have ample growth


Key West chapter member Kerrie Cromie receives the award
as new member of the year.


to go before reaching Key West's
22 members, who meet at Keys
Federal Credit Union in Peary
Court. The island's membership
has been around about 20 years,
according to President Phyllis
May.
"There so many people who
need it," May said. "The thing
that many people really don't
understand is that good commu-
nication skills are directly related
to your success in life, especially
in business."
It's natural, Toastmaster offi-
cers agree, to be terrified of pub-
lic speaking at first.


"Everybody is afraid," Rolle
said. "Everybody, even the pros."
The class has a 10-prong
approach to improving funda-
mental public speaking: ice-
breaker, talking about yourself,
organizing speech, getting to the
point, body language, vocal vari-
ety (speaking naturally),
researching your topic, using
visual aides, persuading with
power and inspiring the audi-
ence.

West Toastmasters, contact May
at 295-7501. For the Middle
Keys, call Rolle at 731-0135.

The Marathon High School

S20-10.
Penalties and turnovers were
plentiful during a game played
on a field left in poor condition

team's conditioning Friday night.
"We started to get run down;
being outside in the humidity
makes a difference. It didn't do
much to help us out, but they did
a good job of executing their
offense," he said.
The Dolphins ran for 142
yards, while the Bulldogs wore
the Dolphins' defense down in
the second half and finished with
270 yards on the ground.
Overall, Marathon was out-
gained 345 yards to 245.
Junior quarterback Kenny
White turned in a sub-par per-
formance for him, going 6 of 16
for just 43 yards and three inter-
ceptions. He also rushed for 20
yards on 10 carries.
Senior star Sergio Howard
was held largely in check by
Carroll, rushing 19 times for 67
yards and a touchdown.
Sophomore Tweet Martin ran for.
34 yards on three carries.
Martin reached into his bag of
tricks early on after the Dolphins
forced a Bulldog three and out to
open the game.
Faced with a fourth down on
their first possession, Marathon
faked a punt and sophomore
Nyran Ross completed a 60-yard
pass down the sideline that
bounced off a'Bulldog defender's
fingertips and was hauled in by
White.
But the Dolphins were forced
to settle for a Jamie Holding field
goal and an early 3-0 lead.
Carroll would answer with a
touchdown on its next posses-
sion. They fumbled twice during
the drive but were able to recov-
er.
Early in the second quarter
was when the turnovers began,
including three on four plays.
White intercepted a ball


before throwing one of his own
two plays later. The very next
play, Marathon stripped a
Bulldog running back as he was
being tackled after a long run.
The Bulldogs turned it over
twice more before the half, but
Marathon was unable to capital-
ize and trailed 7-3 at the half.
The Dolphins opened up the
third quarter with a length drive
that ended with a Howard inter-
ception at the Bulldog goal line.
Carroll answered right back with
a touchdown drive of their own
and took a 13'-3 lead into the
fourth quarter.
Down 20-3, Howard scored
on a short touchdown run to
make it 20-10 with 3:11 left in the
game. But the Bulldogs were able
to collect a few first downs on the
ground to run the clock out and
end the game.
Up next for Marathon is a
home game Friday against anoth-
er Class 2A team, Gulliver Prep.
The game begins at 7:30.

Haven," Gideon said.
The Canes opened with 'a
win at Sheridan.Hills Christian
(a Kickoff Classic game being
counted as a win in the Canes'
shortened non-district sched-
ule), then stumbled badly in the
home opener against Ransom
Everglades.
"That was our only real let-
down," Gideon said. "We
played well against Key West
[in a close loss], then won at
Moore Haven."
Having played just once the
past three weeks, in the 22-14
comeback win at Moore
Haven, the Hurricanes are rela-
tively rested and healthy.
Senior offensive lineman
Austin Kaile is being evaluated
for a possible return to the line-
up this week after recovering
from an injury that threatened
to sideline him all season.
SShoring up the offensive
front has been a major goal this
fall, but the blockers played so
well against Moore Haven that
freshman Courtney Dixon was
able to concentrate on playing


linebacker rather than going
two ways.
Junior quarterback Chris
Rini led the Hurricanes in rush-
ing against Moore Haven, scor-
ing on runs of five and second
yards. Julius Blankenship had
his strongest game at running
back with 74 yards.


Rini also: can throw to a
corps of talented receivers
including Randell Jackmen,
Jason Soares, Ryan Biondoletti
and Darius Kittle.
Soares scored the winning
touchdown against Moore
Haven on a 76-yard punt
return.

No TDs again


for the Conchs


And again,
team gives up
opening score
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The Key West High School
football team's downward spiral
continued in familiar fashion
Friday afternoon in a 40-3. non-
district loss to Gulliver Prep in
Miami.
The Conchs failed to score a
touchdown for the second con-
secutive game and once again
allowed a TD on their oppo-
nent's first play.
"In the first half, it was like
we were walking in sand," said
coach Robert James, still trying
to figure out why his team
begins games so miserably.
The week before, against
Monsignor Pace, it was a long
return of a fumble that immedi-
ately put the Conchs behind.
This time, it was a 54-yard
touchdown pass on Gulliver's
first play from scrimmage.
"It has to be a mindset,"
James said. "They didn't have to
go to school [Friday]. They rode
in an air-conditioned bus. They
ate good [at the Golden Corral],
but then it took until the second
half before they showed any
intensity.
"I can't find the right words
to say for us to give that extra
effort early in the game. As the
head coach, I'm supposed to
have a bag of tricks."
Key West, which fell to 2-3,
has shown that it cannot dig out
from an early deficit.


"With the problems we have
on offense, it's almost impossi-
ble to overcome," James said.
The problems were especially
glaring against 5-0 Gulliver. The
Conchs had minus 24 rushing
yards and were at the mercy of
the Raiders' Erik Lichter, who
had seven sacks and 14 tackles.
Sophomore quarterback
Phillip Young was replaced by
senior Phillip Jones in the third
quarter. Jones, coming back
from an injury, threw an inter-
ception on his first play and
went on to throw three more.
"They knew we had to pass and
[Jones] was rusty," James said.
The Conch defense forced
Gulliver into five turnovers -
cornerback Chris Harris had two
interceptions in the third quarter
- but each time the offense
gave the ball right back.
Gulliver always seemed to be
in the end zone. Not only did the
Raiders score five touchdowns,
but they also made five consecu-
tive two-point conversions.
Key West's only points came
on a 47-yard field goal by
Thomas Daubs in the first quar-
ter.
Asked if the Conchs lack the
talent to compete with strong
teams, James said, "Pace [which
beat the Conchs, 39-3] does
have more talent, but Gulliver ...
that should have been a better
game."
The Conchs will play district
opponent Mater Academy at
7:30 p.m. Friday, the first of
three consecutive games at
Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium.

Harden eyes running record


Conchs travel
to Titusville
this Friday
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


If Zach Harden is going to
break Key West High School's
sophomore cross-country record,
his best chance could be Friday
when the Conchs run against a
strong field at the Flrunners.com
Invitational at Chain of Lakes
Park in Titusville.
Harden's best 5-kilometer time
is 18 minutes, 43 seconds, and the


sophomore record set by
David Gonzalez in 2002 is
18:17.
"The course [at Titusville] is
flat and lightning fast," Key West
coach Terence White said. "That
could give him a minute."
Harden is used to running
along the thick-grass hills of the
Key West Golf Club, where last
Saturday morning, in a meet
against Gulf High, he finished
first in 19:23 the same time he
recorded the previous Saturday.
In a 27-28 loss, the Conch
boys' team also got good efforts
from freshman Robert Rupp


(fifth, 21:34) and sophomores
Mike LaBounty (sixth, 21:37)
and Cale Hartle (seventh, 21:44).
"To lose by one is a little sad,"
White said. "You want to win, but
the real focus is on getting better
each week and how we will do at
the end of the season."
The Key West girls' team is
also looking to lower times in
Titusville after losing to Gulf, 16-
39. Senior Tyler Buckheim was
the Conchs' first finisher, placing
fifth in 25:28, three minutes
behind winner Jaci Pustelnik.
Junior Olivia Kent (26:59) was
seventh, senior Elizabeth King
(27:45) was eighth and freshman
Jayci Hall (29:34) was ninth.


Golfing Conchs finish at .500


Team awaits
district meet
mid-October
With its short game continuing
to get better, the Key West High
School golf team finished third in
a quad match Friday afternoon at
the Kingsway Country Club in
Lake Suzy, Fla.
Charlotte High won the match
with a 158, followed by North
Port (168), Key West (178) and
Port Charlotte (199).
Junior Daniel Margil led the
Conchs 'with a 42, just ahead of




)'IT


*i


freshman Jack Lockwood's 43
and junior Blake Oropeza's 44..
Junior Marco Martinez shot 53
and sophomore Zach Kemp shot
55.
"Kingsway is a long, open
course, but challenging with its
fairway bunkers and pin loca-
tions," Key West coach Nora
Laubenstein said. "Everyone's
short game is improving."
The Conchs concluded their
regular season with a -10-10 record
and now await the Oct. 15 District
24 meet in south Miami-Dade.
On Saturday in the Charlotte
County Junior Tournament,
Lockwood shot a 78 over 18 holes

Do you believe in miracles?


Towe's crew
laps Rosher for
swordfish title

It seems kind of strange to
cover a swordfish tournament out
of Miami.
But the Miami Swordfish
Tournament, the second half of
the Florida Swordfish Series that
saw the first half of the series in
Islamorada three weeks ago, had
a Florida Keys tie-in over the
weekend.
Capt. Randy Towe from
Tavemier is no stranger to sword-
fishing. Since he grew up in Fort
SLauderdale and caught swordfish
back in the 1970s and '80s, it was
not a far stretch for him to com-
pete in the Miami event.
Towe won the 2005 Islamorada
Swordfish Tournament fishing
aboard his Quit Yer Bitchin, aptly
named. His current team, the My
Sea Cin, needed a miracle to win
this year's tournament series,
which carries an additional purse
of $10,000. The winner of the
most points combined in both the
Islamorada and Miami tourna-
ments wins the series.
The Miami team Miss Britt led
the series with five releases and a
146-pound weight fish for a total
of 646 points. Two other boats
had five releases counting for 500
points.
Towe had three releases, put-
ting his crew in ninth place.
"The Miss Britt is one boat
that you don't want to see in the
lead going into an event like this.
The odds of that crew going out
and having an off night is remote
and, to be honest, that's what we
needed." Towe says.
Friday, the first night of the
Miami tournament, saw the bad-
luck karma start with the My Sea
Cin crew as it had "the fish of the
tournament" on for 45 minutes,
just to pull the hook about a boat
length out.
"The fish was in the mid-200
pound range, which would have
been the largest fish of the tour-
nament. I told the crew that they
did everything right. In a tourna-
ment atmosphere, you have to
keep heavy pressure on the fish
and things like that just happen.
Nothing you can do," Towe says.
Team My Sea Cin ended the
night with a respectable-two
swordfish release, keeping pace


T e ~somewhat
S, with the
Miss Britt
for the
series tour-
nament
th lead'.
Going
n into the
second and
final night
of fishing
Saturday,
the Miss
Cal Sutphin Britt had
the lead
with 760 points after catching
and releasing one 214-pound fish
the previous night. Towe's crew
now sat at 500 points with the
two releases the night prior.
Mother Nature would- not
make the second night of fishing
easy, as a front approached with
winds clocked at 25 knots out of
the east and 10-footers (wave
heights) in Government Cut.
"We sucked it up and ran 26
miles to the northeast so that we
would be drifting down sea the
whole night, and the move paid
off as we got-our first bite at 9
p.ni. We know that moved us up
in the series, but our VHF was


garbled and we just couldn't
make out who was catching
what," he said.
"At 11 p.m., we had another
bite and caught it, increasing our
points another 100 to 700 total,
but with lines out at 2:30 a.m.,
time was running out."
He says that "in my wildest
dreams, I can't imagine Ray
Rosher not catching a fish on the
Miss Britt. I really felt that we
needed two more fish or a large
weight fish to have a chance."
Around 1 a.m., they hooked
their third for a successful
release. That gave them 800
points and now a shot. -
"When we got back in to the
dock, we licked our wounds,
filled out the score card and fig-
ured that Rosher had another vic-
tory until people started to con-
gratulate us," Towe said. "It was-
n't until I ran into a tournament
committee worker and they asked
for my camera for documentation.
did I realize we had not only the
Miami tournament win, but the
series championship as well."
The impossible happened -
the Miss Britt crew did not catch a
fish and the My Sea Cin team had
the night of its swordfishing life.

Marathon with guides Barry Meyer and B.J. Meyer and
