Freeze on


hotel rooms



may remain


But it looks at odds
with county's RFPs
for airport rooms
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Hotel developers might get
mixed messages from Monroe
County if the County
Commission extends its current
moratorium on building new
hotel or motel rooms.
The commission last month
agreed to put out a request for
proposals looking for someone
to build hotels at the airports in
Marathon and Key West. But the
county has had a freeze on con-
structing new hotel or motel
rooms since 1994. Next week,
the County Commission will
look at extending that moratori-


um for another year.
The commission meets in
regular session Jan. 16 at the
Harvey Government Center in
Key West.
In June, Commissioner Mario
Di Gennaro brought up the idea
of the county partnering with a
private developer to build a hotel
at Florida Keys Marathon
Airport that could be used by
emergency workers in the event
of a hurricane. His thinking was
that it's a way to get a new emer-
gency operations center
financed by a private entity. The
county now uses the Marathon
Government Center as its EOC.
Di Gennaro notes the timing
of the renewal of the moratorium
and the request for proposals to

Hotel revenue

By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com


Higher hotel rates around
the county have raked in record
income for lodging business -
but not everyone feels they are
benefiting.
Hoteliers have seen a steady
rise in income since 2003,


while at the same time the num-
ber of total rooms filled, or
occupancy rates, began a pre-
cipitous drop. The correlation
is not a coincidence, said
Harold Wheeler, director of the
TDC.
"Obviously this was a
record year for fiscal year '07,
which had a lot to do with the
increasing room rates," he said.
"The visitor count was down ...

ROUGH TIME: Two Lehigh Acres residents were stranded for
three days aboard this broken down sailboat, the 'Taloa,' 44
miles south of Key West before being rescued Saturday. A
210-foot U.S. Coast Guard cutter and a Falcon jet were
instrumental in getting the boat to Key West Harbor, Coast

and that will continue to affect
other tourism businesses, such
as attractions, water activities
and shops.,
"We have reports of people
bringing their Styrofoam cool-
ers" as visitors skip dinners out
and attractions to afford lodging,
he said.
The continuing rise in room
rates stems in part from hotels
upgrading, Wheeler and other
business leaders have said in the
past. But industry consensus was
that when the rooms were
unavailable during renovations,
the same number of tourists
would still come, packing the
available rooms and raising
occupancy.
Even though hundreds of
rooms went offline with more
expected to follow suit that
increase in occupancy did not
happen.
Over the past year, Keys
occupancy has dropped more
than 3 percent from the year
before, according to the Miami
visitors' bureau.
And even the rosy "record"
year the TDC reports is based on
less-than-stellar growth.
Some areas, though, did bet-
ter than others last year.
Key Largo, or the TDC's
District 5, saw a 10.8 percent
growth in bed-tax collections
during the past fiscal year,
capped off by double-digit
growth from May to September,
according to TDC report.
October continued that streak,
said Jackie Harder, president of
the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce.
The TDC comprises five dis-


tricts which are, in order: Key
West; the other Lower Keys not
including Key West; Marathon;
Islamorada and Tavernier; and
Key Largo.
District 2, the Lower Keys,
enjoyed its sixth straight year of
positive growth the only dis-
trict to do so. But the district is
the smallest of the five; District
1, Key West, for instance, pulls
down nearly eight times more
hotel revenue.
Owners of attractions -
businesses like the tours, charter
boats and museums have
complained to the TDC that ris-
ing hotel rates and lowered
occupancy translate to fewer
customers for their businesses.
They say the uptick in prices
comes from renovations that
combine rooms into family-
sized facilities, changing the
business, demographic on top of
lowering the overall visitor

TDC releases


annual report


HALF-PRICE


It breaks down
the bed tax,
other details
Keynoter Staff


The county's Tourist
Development Council recently
released its "Three Penny
Revenue Report" concluding
fiscal year 2007 (October to
September). The pennies are
part of a tax collected on
hotels and guesthouses, the
money that makes up the
council's annual budget.
More tax collected means
area lodgings brought in more
revenue, making the report an
important bellwether of the
Keys' tourism-based econo-
my. The added tax on hotel
beds is actually 4 percent, or
four pennies on every dollar.
The fourth penny goes straight


to the district it is collected in,
to be allocated by that dis-
trict's local council.
The fiscal year 2007 began
with October 2006, the one-
year anniversary of Hurricane
Wilma. Tourists avoided the
Keys during October 2005,
especially the lower two dis-
tricts. The return to normal
business inflated the current
year's increase, except in dis-
trict five.
Where the rest of the coun-
ty saw 50 percent to 185 per-
cent growth, Key Largo only
saw 16 percent growth and
October 2006 business lagged
$26,000 behind inflation-
adjusted October 2004 num-
bers. But the area's chamber
of commerce reports business
was back up and booming in
October 2007.

build hotels is purely coinciden-
tal, if somewhat ironic.
"I feel we need more hotel
rooms for our tourists," he
told the Keynoter Tuesday.
"We have prime property. If
we can make income for the
county, especially if we can
bring in a flag hotel, it would
bring a lot more credibility to
the Keys."
The moratorium on new
hotel rooms also bans the cre-
ation of new campgrounds or
RV parks. The freeze is meant
to last until the county comes
up with a building permit allo-
cation system that controls
growth'in the Keys.
Any plans for new units
must fully address the issues
of hurricane evacuation,
workforce housing, increased
traffic, wastewater and
impacts on the environment.
County staff recommends
approval of the extended
moratorium.
A second moratorium up


for renewal is also on next
week's commission agenda.
That one would prevent the
transfer of recreational-vehi-
cle spaces to hotel or motel
rooms off site.
"Existing regulations gov-
erning RVs as transient resi-
dential units have been inade-
quate to preclude the conver-
sion of existing RVs into per-
manent residences," the mora-
torium reads. "The transfer
and conversion of RV spaces
currently used for affordable
housing into hotel or motel
rooms exacerbates the existing
affordable housing crisis."

according to the Florida

Cook was traveling south-

When he did so, the left side of
his bike sideswiped a north-
bound 1998 Dodge driven by
Peter Policastro, 52, of
Marathon.
That led to the motorcycle
spilling and Cook being tossed
from it into the left rear fender of
Cachero's car.
He suffered "numerous lacer-

striking both other vehicles and
the road, troopers said.

managers and biologists from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
"I think it shows the FWC
wants to be part of this
process," Irwin said. FWC fish-
ery manager "Bill Sharp said
the agency is committed to
working with our group and
wants to help in any way it
can."
At Monday's organizing ses-
sion, workgroup leaders out-
lined a proposal to allow trap-
pers, commercial divers and
recreational dive interests to
each study the regulations on
their own, and suggest changes
they would like to see.
"We don't want to tell recre-
ational divers who should be on
their panel," Irwin said. "That's
up to them.
"The big thing is that over
the next year, we'll come
together at times to discuss
these issues, and see if we can
find recommendations- that we
can all forward."
A two-year process by a
state-appointed Spiny Lobster
Advisory Board to oversee an
overhaul of lobster regulations
hit a bump when it went before


the full Conservation ,Com-
mission in December.
Agency staff and the board
members disagreed on some
key elements of the plan, name-
ly a proposed revival of a trap-
reduction program.
A group representing
Broward County divers and
dive shops turned out in force to
protest that they were Unaware
of the revision process and felt
excluded.
"This seems to be an attempt
by various people to address
lobster issues in a less-struc-
tured format than the advisory
board," said Doug Gregory,
Monroe County Cooperative'
Extensions Service marine
agent. "There's a real attempt to
make sure more people are
included in the discussions."
"The real beauty of this is
that the various groups can
interact with each other and
address concerns before every-
thing blows up at the FWC
meeting," Gregory said. "It's a
real attempt to reach out."
No recreational divers turned
out Monday, but the Keys
Association of Dive Operators
has indicated it will participate
in the process, Gregory said.
He also plans to contact
members of the Broward
County group to invite their
participation.
"It's a very ambitious goal to
try to do all this within the
year," Gregory noted. "But it's
better to try than to not try."
Irwin said he was confident a
package of rule changes can be
presented to the FWC when it
returns to the Keys next
December. "We've got one
meeting down and a second ten-
tatively scheduled for Feb. 26,"
he said. "We're moving for-
ward."

'Worst fish kill I've ever seen'


Cold temperatures
are likely cause,
scientist says
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Fish in shallow waters felt the
deadly sting of last week's record
cold snap in the Florida Keys.
Backcountry 'guides, marine
officers and beach walkers all
reported seeing dead fish appar-
ently killed by temperatures that
plunged below 40 degrees in
some parts of the Keys.
"I've never seen a fish kill
like that in my life," Key Largo
guide Mike Makowski of
Blackfoot Charters said after a
Thursday trip to Lake Ingraham,
due north of the Middle Keys in
the western portion of-
Everglades National Park.
, "There were dead fish all over
the flats, mostly Goliath grouper
and snook," said Makowski, a
South Florida native who grew
who grew up fishing local
waters. "None of the snook were
legal size. The largest grouper
was around 25 pounds."
He also spotted a dead saw-
fish, along with smaller fish like


snapper and ladyfish. "Catfish
were swimming at the surface,
gasping for air," he said.
"When we got to the
Flamingo boat ramp at 6:30 a.m.
[Thursday], the air temperature
was 33 degrees," Makowski said.
"The water temperature at the.
ramp was 44 degrees."
He spot-checked water tem-
perature at other locations and
got readings in the mid-50s.
"I even saw a dead baby bull
shark," Makowski said, "but no
redfish."
Cal Sutphin, a guide,
Keynoter fishing columnist and
fishing-show host, said he has
received numerous reports from
throughout the Keys of dead fish
killed in the backcountry.
"I got out Friday and saw
dead barracuda and parrotfish,"
Sutphin said. "Not a lot, but
every so often you'd see one
upside down at the surface."
"It was the worst fish kill I've
seen here," said Sutphin, a local
fishing professional for six years.
The cold has not been posi-'
tively identified as a cause of the
fish kill but certainly is the most
likely cause, said Cory Walter,
staff biologist for Mote Marine
Laboratory in the Lower Keys.


"We have previous accounts n= A4 S 7
of fish kills in our database when FO IA KEYS
we do get a cold spell," Walter
said. "We can say it definitely
was not red tide."
Volunteer bay monitors and
Mote staff took water samples
from north of the Content Keys
on Monday and found "no pres-
ence" of the toxic red-tide algae.
National Weather Service sta-
tions in Key West recorded a low
of 45 degrees Jan. 3, a record low
for the date. It was the first 45-
degree temperature in Key West
since January 2003, and only the
second in the last decade.
Other low temperatures for
the date were measured at 43 o
degrees at the Marathon Airport,
and 38 degrees on Key Largo.
By Sunday, water tempera-
tures in shallows off the Upper
Keys ranged from 63 degrees to
68 degrees by midday, Sutphin
said.
"It's gotten warmer and
warmer every day" since
Thursday, said Makowski. Water
temperatures in Florida Bay shal-
lows earlier this week were near
69 degrees, he said Tuesday. "By
now, they could be back to CLASSIFIED ADS 743-5551
around 72 degrees."

Kys Opinion


New one-way streets

can be boon for safety
One-way streets designed to ease traffic congestion and
improve safety in Bahama Village in Key West brought a differ-
ent sort of reaction from some residents.
As reported in today's Keynoter, City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez has been swamped with calls complaining about the con-
fusion and the "extra" driving since the plan was implemented
Jan. 2.
Of course, anytime traffic patterns change, you can expect to
get gripes.
And it should be noted that other parts of Old Town have
coped pretty well with one-way streets for years, so the "extra"
driving argument is lame.
In the long run, what's important is that both pedestrian and
vehicular safety are enhanced by use of one-way streets to bet-
ter control traffic and parking in narrow streets that criss-cross
Bahama Village.
Most urban planners will argue that making it possible for cars
to go faster is the wrong solution to apply. We don't believe that
is the major goal in switching to one-way streets in this part of
Key West.
Having driven in and around the cemetery's one-way streets,
we can attest that four-way stops at intersections become a much
safer, saner exercise. than the rubber-necking we experience in
some of the narrow streets off United and White behind the
Harvey Government Center.
Before city officials react to the flood of phone calls, we think
the police and public-works folks have the right idea: "Over time
it will be fine."

City ramps up for boaters

Small victories sometimes go unrecognized.
One such example we can cite from Saturday's Keynoter,
where we learn the city of Marathon successfully negotiated for
$869,088 in funds from the Federal Emergency Management
Agency to help with repairs to the 33rd Street boat ramp.
Deputy City Manager C.J. Geotis said the.FEMA money will
allow the city to move forward on the badly needed repairs there,
as well as jump start work on a ramp at the other end of town.
Close readers will remember that developers of the Marlin
Bay Yacht Club donated $180,000 in mitigation funds to help
pay for public water-access projects in the city. With the FEMA
funds picking up the lion's share of repairs to the 33rd Street
ramp, that $180,000 can now help fund replacement of the bay-
side ramp adjacent to the old Quay restaurant near mile marker
54.
So this is a case where one good deed helps spawn another.
And for boaters who have found public ramps in short supply
and overly crowded, this comes as a delayed, but welcome pres-
ent to unwrap in the new year.

Sewer board not listening to constituents


EDITOR:
What happened? We lost our wastewater
commissioners.
Maybe if we looked around down in
Islamorada, we could find some of our board
members down there soliciting more sewage -
Key Largo's sales team. They've been down
there soliciting Islamorada business for so long,
they have forgotten they were elected to repre-
sent Key Largo citizens. In doing so, they have
moved so far from the Key Largo citizens that
they have gone into a pattern of ignoring them.
It appears out of the five commissioners on
the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District
board, there is only one, Norm Higgins, who
realizes he was elected to represent Key Largo
citizens.
At the board meeting Dec. 18, there was a
large cadre of Key Largo citizens who are lead-
ers and officers of community groups. Their
plea was unanimous for the board to discontinue
any further dialogue with Islamorada concerning
accepting their sewage. Their combined citizen
representation is in the thousands. They repre-
sent approximately 24 homeowners associations
from mile marker 93 to 107, the entire district.
They were allowed their three-minute presen-
tations and some 30-second rebuttal periods but
were virtually ignored. One group mentioned it

Keys forever remain speci
EDITOR:
In 1989 I set out for the Florida Keys from
Tampa. I had an old Volvo station wagon and
not much else. I was 31 and had no clue where I
was going in life. That still may be true today,
however, my life was most certainly enriched
having lived almost 20 years in the Keys. I met
people and made friends that I will never forget.
It seems that almost on a weekly basis, I read
a letter lamenting what the Keys have become.
The only constant about the Keys is that they
change. Always have, always will. I think what
doesn't change is the people who have made a
profound impact on our lives. That's what I
think about when I'm missing the place I called
home for so long. It's the people, not the sun or
the sand or the palm trees.
It's people like Father Tony on Big Pine Key
and Mike Puto in Marathon who have been


Grief's made easier
EDITOR:
Recently my mother Sylvia Jewell passed
away. I would like to thank the many people
who made this ordeal easier:
The Marathon Jet Center, which went out of
its way to make it possible for me to arrive in
time to say goodbye; my fellow coworkers, who
had to do so much extra while I was gone; the
members of St. Columba Episcopal Church for
the caring memorial; and lastly, all the friends
and acquaintances who stopped by for condo-
lences and memories of my mom. May she
smile down on everyone with her blessings.

had sent a formal letter to each commissioner
and staff Nov. 15 and had never received any
reply. Each commissioner received a copy; not
one had bothered to reach out to the con-
stituents. The chairman told the audience he
read the letter. Four members of the board with
no reference to the wishes of the community
voted yes on a motion to create a letter request-
ing further negotiations with Islamorada.
Near the end of the meeting, commissioners
brought up the letter again after the dust had set-
tled and the citizens had left the meeting room.
Commissioner Susan Hammaker suggested per-
haps the board needed to establish a procedure
to answer such letters. The board has been in
existence for five years, the sitting commission-
ers have been on the board one year. This is
surely an indicator the board and staff are no
longer connected with the people.
If our commissioners don't inherently know
their responsibility to be constantly engaged
with the communities they swore to serve, they
should step aside. Each commissioner should
have stood tall either pro or con. If it's con, they
should have expressed in their reply letter their
logic and reasoning for going against the peo-
ple's interest.

A vote for tax shift is a vote for teachers


EDITOR:
Absentee ballots for the Jan. 29
election were mailed out this week,
as voters make their nomination
choice for president and also a local
issue critical to the operation of our
school district. The ballot has only
one countywide referendum, which -
renews a school funding method for
an additional four years.
A yes vote will allow the Monroe
County School Board the flexibility
to continue to use some existing tax
revenue for operational expenses like
teacher and school nurse salaries. If
the referendum were not to pass, the
board would be required to spend the
same money, only on unnecessary
capital projects. Either way, your tax
rate is not affected by the referen-
dum.
The Legislature requires that
every four years, voters review the
way the schools are funded and
either renew or cut off this opera-
tional funding. In 2004, 67 percent
voted yes-
This is a system that has worked
well the past four years. It has raised
the starting and ending salaries for


teachers whether they have a bache-
lor's, master's, specialist or doctorate
degree to either No. 1 or No. 2 in the
state. We were the first county to pay
beginning teachers with bachelor's
degrees more than $40,000 annually.
The teacher salaries have helped
tremendously with recruiting; three
years ago our school doors opened in
the fall with about two dozen
unfilled teaching positions. The year
after, it was reduced to about a dozen
and this year only two. In addition,
principals feel this year's recruits
were of a higher quality.
To cut off this funding method
would be the equivalent of laying off
more than 200 teachers. The disrup-
tion this would cause would be enor-
mous.
A yes vote for the local referen-
dum would ensure our schools may
continue to operate within the exist-
ing tax rate structure. In today's
chaotic real estate market, stability of
ad valorem tax rates is an important
benefit because it removes the possi-
bility of a disruptive element.

Missing wallet should have been turned in


EDITOR:
This is to the lowlife who stole
my wallet from the shopping cart at
Home Depot Jan. 5 between 5:15 and
6 p.m. This was not a small wallet
that a guy can carry in his back
pocket, but a larger tri-fold brown
leather unit.
This person could have done the
right thing and turned it in and
received a reward, but opted to keep
it, which makes it stealing. It was
full of federal government charge
cards and other items, and a few per-
sonal items and a small amount of
money. Since the cards were federal


government cards, this makes it a
federal offense should this person try
to use any card in there.
Store security video is being
checked; inside video shows it was
laying on the cart shelf when I exited
the front door. The outside lot video
from the store's top cameras is now
being reviewed to see what vehicles
were parked in that area that late in
the evening and who picked up the
carts.
Remember, what goes around
comes around.

Clerks certify support for troops


EDITOR:
The Marathon office of the
Monroe County Clerk of the Courts
this holiday season adopted a unit of
soldiers in Fallujah. For about six
weeks we pooled our personal
resources to purchase gifts and
much-needed items. We filled 11
boxes totaling 280 pounds.
Heartfelt thanks go out to family
and friends as well as Shiela Weston
from D&M Golfcart, Avon lady Rene
Svendsen, dentist Thomas Kiefer and
Trooper Daniel Schlosser. Marathon
post-office employees Angel and Bill
supplied us with tape and forms.
Sherry Player supplied us with sturdy
boxes. Terrell, a county trusty, loaded
the stuffed parcels into the truck.


This was all made possible by the
generosity of Capt. Bob Peryam from
the Sheriff's office, who donated the
postage.
Just think if every family would
just send one small box a month to
any soldier what a difference it
would make. Our brave men and
women have put their freedoms on
hold while fighting to preserve our
liberties and freedoms that we enjoy
here at home.

Volunteers ring up a good holiday season


EDITOR:
I would like to thank our wonderful
community for its support toward our
red-kettle season. With the support of
Marathon and our visitors, we raised
$24,500 in our kettles to go toward our
social-service programs.
I would especially like to thank
Sheron Grossmann, who walked into my
office and said she was here to help her
community. And that she did. She raised
$10,000 more than we did the previous
year. Also a big thanks to her children
Cole and Lindsay and her husband
Richard for being patient for the 39 days
of 12-hour seven-days-a-week that
Sheron volunteered while they ate fast
food and waited for mom and buddy to
come home from the kettles. She is a true
inspiration to all.


I would also like to thank the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office, Mike Puto, the
Zonta Club, the Jaycees, the Marathon
Yacht Club, the Marathon Community
Theatre, Katie Greenman and Sarah
Fabian from Marathon High School,
Gordon, Goldy, Debbie Sterling, Wayne
Porter and every person that rang time
and time again when we were short of
bell ringers. Many were those that the
Salvation Army has given a hand up to.
Their desire to give back shows that our
services really do make a difference.
We could not make .such an impact on
the lives we touch without the support we
receive during the holiday season. I thank
everyone sincerely.

It's time to sewer Marathon citywide


EDITOR:
At 6 p.m. tonight, Marathon's citizens
will have the opportunity to view (Comcast
Cable Channel 76) and participate in a spe-
cial City Council meeting at the Marathon
Government Center. Vital, difficult decisions
will likely be made by our five city coun-
cilors.
The original reason for this meeting was
to finalize the sewer assessment methodolo-
gy and equivalent dwelling unit cost prior to
applying them to Area 4 and 6 property tax
bills for 2008. However, the exact same
methodology and EDU charge will eventual-
ly be applied to the rest of Marathon in 2009,
and should be of concern to all citizens now.
The issue that will probably be most dis-
cussed and most contentious is whether
Marathon should go all out, without delay, to
sewer the city before the state's July 2010
deadline (despite the fact that no significant
additional grant funding has surfaced or is
likely to come over the next 30 months).
And if so, how to finance the remaining (32
percent) grant portion of the total project
cost: short-term loans, bond or higher tax
assessments?
Based on the City Council's track record
for Areas 4 and 6, we cannot afford to wait.


Acceptable bids were received in April but
contracts were only signed five months later
with a (theoretical) Area 4 start construction
date of Oct. 1 last year. None of the other
five areas are yet ready to bid (planning is
incomplete or permits still needed). Area 3
was supposed to start construction in March
(impossible).
Citizens should demand that the council
go all out to complete the project in time.
Why should residents and businesses in cer-
tain parts of the. city face heavy fines and
closures in July 2010 while those elsewhere
are already connected to city sewers?
The city should get loans to fund the
remaining 32 percent of the project cost that
was promised as state grants. It should .
report that total loan amount with interest to
the state Legislature every month. This will
reinforce our expectation to eventually get
the promised grant funding, plus all loan
interest.
The state and feds cannot expect the
80,000 residents of the Keys to fund this
enormous, mandated project without the
promised help. We should never give up on
this, but we cannot procrastinate anymore.

Second body in two days found floating


Tuesday, the day after a body
was found floating off the Seven
Mile Bridge, another one was
found in Key West Harbor.
City police identified him as
70-year-old Thomas O'Toole, a
homeless man. The man found
Monday in the Middle Keys had
not been identified by press time
Tuesday.
Key West spokeswoman
Christie Phillips said that
Tuesday, a boater called the city
Police Department at 7:33 a.m. to
report he saw a body in the water
at the Key West Bight. With the
help of the U.S. Coast Guard,
detectives recovered it and took it
to the Monroe County Medical
Examiner's Office.


There were no signs of foul
play. The cause of death is possi-
bly drowning pending results of
an autopsy.
Monday, the Sheriff's Office
received a call from the north end
of the Seven Mile Bridge at 9:25
a.m. from someone reporting
he'd just seen a body floating in
the water toward Pigeon Key.
Dispatchers called for assis-
tance from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion and the Coast Guard. Both
agencies had boats in the water
and FWC officers located the
body, which was taken to the
Coast Guard Station in Marathon.


Deputy Becky Herrin said the
man was not carrying identifica-
tion. He is white and perhaps in
his mid- to late 50s. He has a
medium build of approximately 5
feet, 8 inches and is 170 pounds.
He is clean-shaven and has col-
lar-length salt-and-pepper hair.
Anyone with information
about his ID should call the
Sheriff's Office at 289-2480.

Dead diver ID'd
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office detectives have identified
a man who died diving off Key
Largo Dec. 31 as Peter Wilsand,
51, from Minette, Wis.
He was out on a boat from the
Atlantis Dive Center and was on

his second dive of the day, at the
wreck of the Duane.
Deputies say his dive buddy
said they'd been down for about
25 minutes and were surfacing.
They did a safety stop and the
dive buddy said the victim left the
safety stop about a minute before
he did. He said he surfaced and a
crew member from the boat was


helping him remove his equip-
ment when they noticed Wilsand
face down near the surface.
He was pulled aboard and
crew members began cardiopul-
monary resuscitation but he was
pronounced dead at 12:30 p.m.
Preliminary autopsy results
are pending.

Search on to replace Willi


Ad calls for
someone to 'make

Wanted: An experienced
county administrator with thick
skin and Teflon coating.
That may be reading between
the lines, but the new Monroe
County administrator should be
ready for a tough job.
Monday, the county posted its
help-wanted ad nationally, look-
ing to replace Tom Willi, who
was fired by the County
Commission Dec. 5.
"Working with a budget of
$330 million," the ad reads, "the
ideal candidate will be strong
but diplomatic, have a track
record in innovation, possess at
least 10 years of public-sector
experience, having served as a
manager or assistant in an
oceanside/tourism-oriented
county; possess a high level of
integrity, have attained a mas-
ter's degree in public adminis-
tration or related field, possess


strong communications, finan-
cial and management skills, and
be able to make things happen.
Experience dealing with the
press is important and Florida
experience is preferred."
Salary, the ad says, is based
on qualification, but will likely
range between $107,000 and


Monday,

help-wanted
ad nationally.


$150,000.
Willi was being paid close to
$166,000 annually when he left.
The county's contributions for
health insurance, transportation
and other benefits brought his
total salary package up to a
value of $203,000 annually.
The ad is posted on the fol-


lowing Web sites:
International City/County
Management Association.
+ National Association of
Counties.
Florida League of Cities.
The county's own Web site.
It will also run twice in a local
newspaper and be posted on the
county's local access television
station, Comcast Channel 76.
As of Tuesday, no one had
applied.
The commission, in a 3-2
vote, ended Willi's three-year
tenure with the county without
cause in December. Willi walked
away with $282,000 severance.
He came under fire for short-
falls in the county's funding
reserves and for committing
money to controversial projects,
including $2 million for the
sinking of the ship Vandenberg
as an artificial reef off Key West.
The commission appointed
Willi's deputy administrator to
fill in until a candidate is found.
Debbie Frederick says she's
happy to fill in as long as the job
is filled fairly quickly. As a show
of good faith, she said, she
accepted the additional duties at
no additional salary.

Moratorium for Big Pine, No Name tossed


Planning panel
says to issue
building permits
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Some property owners on. Big
Pine and No Name keys might be
lucky enough to get long-awaited
building permits after Tuesday's
meeting of the Monroe County
Planning Commission.
In a unanimous vote, commis-
sioners shot down a proposed
renewal of a moratorium on issu-
ing permits on the two islands. It
was put in place to give county


staff time to come up with a miti-
gation plan.
"I see no reason to hold people
up," Commissioner Jim Cameron
said. "Let's keep issuing permits.
If it's a problem, then let's lay it
on Fish & Wildlife's table. We've
been pushed around by Fish &
Wildlife for far too long."
Growth on Big Pine and No
Name is tightly controlled under
a habitat conservation plan and an
accompanying incidental-take
permit issued by the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service. Under the plan,
the county must provide environ-
mental mitigation for new or
renewed development to protect


Dr. Troxel put me on the

Chew Chew Express,
Ray Madeo, Restaurateur
and Model Train Enthusiast
"I love my model train layout almost as much as I loved
the good Italian cuisine at my restaurant, Raimundo's.
Just like my trains, my
teeth needed care
and attention to
detail. I wanted


the habitat of endangered Key
deer.
The HCP allows eight new
market-rate and two new afford-
able-rate homes annually for the
next 20 years on the two islands.
This "is a change in tone,"
Commissioner John Marston
said. "They have all the power
and we have to always kowtow.
Maybe we can be the little guy to
say we're not doing that and see
what they do."
The decision to go ahead and
issue permits will likely only
affect a handful of people since
the HCP allows just two market-
rate permits per quarter.
In November, the County
Commission enacted a 60-day
freeze on issuing permits on the
islands after the Planning
Commission recommended a
three-month freeze. All issues
that come before the Planning
Commission must ultimately be


approved by the County
Commission.
In November the Planning
Commission balked at a proposal
that would have tacked a $98,000
fee onto permits for new homes
on Big Pine and'No Name. The
money would have been ear-
marked for the county to pur-
chase environmentally sensitive
land for preservation.
During Tuesday's meeting,
acting Planning Director
Townsley Schwab explained the
formula that created the high fee.
A new calculation, he said, could
bring it down to just under
$47,000.
In the meantime, the commis-
sion directed him to issue the two
permits that would have been
issued in December as well as
those eligible in January.
The county will mitigate the,
impact from those permits from
its own mitigation bank. The

county has been using publicly
owned lands for private niitiga-
tion over the past year, depleting
the county's store of mitigation
land. However, there is enough to
provide mitigation for a few new
homes, Cameron said.

Cops overhear call,
already with suspect

* In response to recent rob-
beries in Old Town, the Key West
Police Department's Youth
Division and Criminal Investi-
gations Unit, along with several
road patrol officers, conducted a
three-night undercover operation
to target those suspected of being
involved in the crimes.
As a result, detectives arrested
Tramayne Quarles early Tuesday
morning after he allegedly held a
pizza deliveryman at knifepoint
and robbed him of the pie, spokes-
woman Christie Phillips said.
She said detectives had
already started speaking to
Quarles, 19, and several others
who were hanging out in the
Bahama Village Marketplace
when they heard the call come
over the police radio that a pizza
deliveryman had just been
robbed in that area. Detectives
originally approached the group
because they learned someone
there had a knife and was threat-
ening people, Phillips said.
Quarles was charged with
robbery by sudden snatching. He
is also a suspect in other rob-
beries.

Village to hear more about sewers


Status report
on manager
search also set
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Islamorada Village Council
members wade into 2008
issues Thursday at the board's
first meeting of the new year.


Items on the agenda include
discussion of wastewater issues,
the process for selecting a new
city manager, and a step toward
authorizing an assessment for

With not much time remain-
ing before the state's mandate
to improve wastewater treat-

still feeling its way on an over-
all treatment plan.


Pelham: County

won't be penalized

By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Monroe County's failing
grade on its 2007 state report card
will not garner any penalties,
says Tom Pelham, the state's sec-
retary of the Department of
Community Affairs.
In a Jan. 7 letter to the Florida
Cabinet, Pelham acknowledged
there were two factual errors in a
September report evaluating the
county's progress toward sewer-
ing the Keys.
The evaluation, Pelham wrote,
"was not intended to suggest that
Monroe County has not accom-
plished a great deal ... Rather, it
was intended to convey that a
substantial amount of work
remains to be done..."
"Further," he wrote, "because
the county continues to make
good-faith efforts to implement the
work plan despite serious funding
shortages, the department has not
recommended that any penalties
be imposed on the county."
Because the Keys are desig-
nated an Area of State Critical
Concern, DCA issues annual
reports assessing the county's
progress on environmental pro-
tection. The goal is to have sew-
ers installed throughout the Keys
by 2010.
Each year DCA makes a rec-
ommendation about the county's
overall progress, but the final
decision lies with the Cabinet. In
the past, little or no progress
resulted in the state withholding
the county's annual allotment of
building permits. Unincorporated
Monroe County is usually
allowed 197 permits for new
homes per year.' '.''. .. .


In late November, then-
County Administrator Tom Willi
rebutted the finding of no signifi-
cant progress, accusing the state
of changing its guidelines.
In a Jan. 7 letter to acting
County Administrator Debbie
Frederick, Pelham spelled out the
errors his agency is correcting.
One placed the Duck Key
sewer plant in Key Largo.
"As Duck Key is clearly not in
Key Largo," he wrote, "the depart-
ment accepted the county's listing
placing it in the Lower Keys."
Because Duck Key doesn't
fall in either region, Pelham
wrote, it cannot be counted in the
overall assessment even though it
is complete and functioning.
The second* factual error
Pelham corrected is the number of
treatment facilities planned in the
Lower Keys, from eight to six.
But acknowledging factual
errors may not be all the county
wants to see. In a Nov. 27 letter to
Pelham, Willi wrote: "My funda-
mental objection ... is not the fac-
tual errors or misrepresentations,
but the departure from the
methodology prescribed by the
governor and Cabinet for evalu-
ating our progress each year.
Willi had argued the county's
progress is reflected in the num-
ber of contracts for operation and
plant design that the county has
signed.
"An agreement to operate a
plant when it is constructed is not
a contract for the operation of a
plant," he wrote.
The county's report card for
approval or rejection is not yet on
the agenda for a Cabieti.meeting.


The village has had contacts
with the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District about a pos-
sible joint use of a Key Largo
treatment plant, which would
require installation of a
pipeline to the site near mile
marker 100.
To keep open that option,
Councilman Chris Sante wants
to discuss a change to
Islamorada's land-use plan that
would allow pumping of
sewage in a pipeline running
over water at channels.
Current rules, intended to
safeguard nearshore waters
against the effect of a pipeline
break, ban the carrying of

sewage over water.
Sante said that the alterna-
tive to a pipeline building a
series of treatment plants on
Islamorada's four inhabited
islands will be too expen-
sive and difficult to place.
Other Islamorada residents
want to preserve local treat-
ment plants that ensure full
municipal control over waste-
water treatment and spending.
A status report on a plan to
use several small treatment
facilities for scattered neigh-


borhoods on Lower
Matecumbe Key is also on the
agenda.
Council members also will
be asked for direction on deal-
ing with unpaid assessments
for sewage treatment.

tion process for a village man-
ager to replace Gary Word.

Cost for mitigation: $2.09M


Work to include
new mangroves,
stormwater plan.
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The city of Key West must
pay a lot, it turns out for
clearing out mangroves to help
with flood drainage.
The city needed a permit do
to the clearing, the South Florida
Water Management District and
the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers said. But it didn't
have one a fact that didn't
stop then-acting City Manager
John Jones from having them
cleared anyway from March to
August in 2006.
Officials say it was to cut
down on post-hurricane flooding
and maintain stormwater-system


efficiency a hurried initiative
to rectify Mother Nature's
destruction to the island.
"The mangroves through the
years had been clogging up
storm drains," Jones said. "And
the [mangroves] hadn't been
there before. The next hurricane
season was coming and they had
to do something. It was com-
pletely clogged up. We thought
it was an emergency and went
ahead and did it."
At its Jan. 2 meeting, the City
Commission unanimously allo-
cated $2.09 million to Charlie
Toppino and Sons Inc. to
encourage mangrove growth in
several areas.
Commissioner Dan Kolhage
fretted the most about a note in a
resolution calling for the expen-
diture, saying $425,000 must be
used from next year's budget.


Sunday, Jan. 13 6:00 p.m.
Key Colony Inn (In the Big Room)
Hors d'oeuvres Cash Bar.


At that meeting, General
Services Director David
Fernandez tried to explain that
project costs were lower than
expected with "no additional
rate impact."
"'An alternative means intro-
duced will save $238,181, while
taking a little less than a year to
complete. The initial plan: Three
separate, more costly project
phases that would've totaled 510
days.
City documents show that
$2.37 million was originally
budgeted for the project.
From March to August 2006,
the staff trimmed and wiped out
14,873 square feet of mangroves
in the Jose Marti area and 41,630
square feet of mangroves and
salt marsh in the Poinciana area,
city documents say.
Jones and staff were told they
should've applied for an emer-
gency permit.
The entities' ultimatum: Fund
and find the resources to
improve management of the
existing stormwater system, add
new red and 'black mangroves
and "improve tidal flow and
water quality," city. documents
read.
According to Fernandez, the
entire project can be broken up
into three sections: 15 percent
mitigation for past action
(required by the Army Corps),
40 percent stormwater improve-
ments (required by water dis-
trict) and 40 percent stormwater
improvements and mitigation
combined.
The mitigation portion will
focus on locations such as the
Hawk missile site, while storm-
flow improvement projects will
focus on sites including the Jose
Marti Retention Pond,. Winn-
Dixie outfall location and the
Riviera Canal.
Residents have voiced con-
cerns over wiping out berm at
the missile site -where air
defense missiles sat during the
Cuban Missile Crisis an act
they say compromises the histor-
ical significance of the area.
The construction manage-
ment portion must go before the
commission, Fernandez said.
That portion will employ the city
staff and an engineering firm to
oversee Toppino's work.
The project will begin after
that passes and is expected to
finish in 360 days.
"We've learned our lesson,"
he-said. .......

Lopez receives
many complaints
about traffic
Keynoter Staff

Key West City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez has been taking a
barrage of angry phone calls
from Bahama Village drivers
lately after eight two-way streets
" in that community were convert-
ed to one-ways Jan. 2.
"I'm up to my neck in my
complaints," said Lopez, whose
district includes Bahama
Village. "I'm hearing from a lot
of people who aren't willing to
give it a chance."
He's even hearing accusa-
tions from residents that officials
are unfairly targeting Bahama
Village.


"That's not true," Lopez said,
adding that other parts of the
island also have one-way streets.
"I don't like it myself, hon-
estly," he said, calling it a neces-
sary change for safety.
He said one man claims to be
paying more for gas due to
increased mileage from navigat-
ing the community's narrow
streets.
Key West police Sgt. Frank
Blasberg said there's been some
initial confusion but no major
traffic accidents or fender-ben-
ders reported.
-"Most of the old-time resi-,'
dents that have been down there
are kind of set in their ways,"
Blasberg said. "Over time, I
think it will be fine and we
won't have any issues other
there."

Leigh Ann Card (left) wants to transform Leigh Ann's Coffee House in Marathon into what she
hopes will be the first totally green business in the Keys. Card is not alone in that push to be green.


Keys eateries going green


From composting
to customer mugs,
small things pay off
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keys Sunday contributor

Nearly every day for 11 years,
the staff at Leigh Ann's Coffee
House, mile marker 51 in
Marathon, has cracked dozens of
eggs and brewed gallons of cof-
fee to nourish their daily break-
fast crowd. And each day, they
tossed the spent egg shells and
coffee grounds into the .trash.
Not anymore.
Now, instead of being hauled
nearly 200 miles to the mainland
for incineration, all those egg


shells and coffee grounds are
being composted behind the
building to create rich soil for the
restaurant's garden.
And in recent weeks, owner
Leigh Ann Card has taken other
environmentally friendly steps,
all with the goal of transforming
Leigh Ann's into what she hopes
will be the first totally green busi-
ness in the Keys and an exam-
ple for others to follow.
Card is not the only one with
green aspirations. From recycling
to serving organic, locally grown
produce to outfitting their estab-
lishments with sustainable wood
furniture, restaurant owners
throughout the Keys are explor-
ing ways to lessen their business'


impact on the planet.
To do her part for the environ-
ment, Card has not only started
composting, but also has also
changed to energy-efficient light-
ing in her restaurant and set the
exterior lights on a timer system.
-She said her biggest challenge
has been implementing a viable
recycling program.
"Around 85 to 90 percent of our
garbage could be recycled," Card
said. "But trying to switch to dis-
posables that Marathon Garbage
will accept has been really discour-
aging. I'm totally, appalled. The
system needs to change."
Card says she is determined to
develop a functional recycling
system that others can emulate.

Audit warned of pool's problems


Restrictons
on withdrawals
to loosen
By DAVID ROYSE
Associated Press

An internal audit warned last
year that the state board that
invests local government money
should have a special committee
to review overall* risk in, the


agency's investments, and that it
was relying on too few broker-
ages when buying securities.
The State Board of
Administration audit was com-
pleted in March, several months
before cities and counties began
frantically withdrawing billions
of dollars from the Local
Government Investment Pool
with fears of losses in risky mort-
gage-backed' securities held 'by


the fund.
The pool that works like a
money market account was
closed in November to stop the
run. When it was reopened in
December some assets in the
account were walled off, limiting
the access local governments
have to their money.
Pool investors at a meeting in
Tallahassee complained they
remain unfairly handcuffed -

By working with her distributors
and waste collector, she said she
is confident she will succeed.
"I live in Oregon six months
of the year and [recycling is] a
way of life out there, so I know it
can be done," Card said. "I want
to be a success story and hopeful-
ly everyone will follow. It's for
our children and grandchildren."
Tami Lynch-McGrail, owner of
the Dock Cafe, 617 Front St., Key
West, wants to implement green
practices, too not only to bene-
fit her fledgling restaurant, but also
for her family and community.
"I'm the mother of two small
children, and I want to know
there's a future for them," Lynch-
McGrail said. "I've been [in Key
West] since I was 5 and I've
watched the deterioration of our
island. Now is the time to halt
and reverse the damage that's
been done."
,Lynch-McGrail serves as
many organic, natural foods as
possible at her 10-month-old
eatery, and tries to provide as
many locally grown products as
she can. And she has made the
switch to some disposable items
made of biodegradable corn poly-
mer rather than Styrofoam, which
can theoretically take hundreds,of
years to decompose.
But making the switch hasn't
been easy.

Among those who are angry
is a group of local governments

charged that a fee requirement

between getting my company off

the environment."
Perhaps Lynch-McGrail could
tap into the expertise of Bob and
Lyndsey McGlasson, who have
owned the Midway Cafe, mile
marker 80.5 in Islamorada, the
past six years.
Lyndsey McGlasson said the
Midway, which is in the process
of becoming an internationally
certified green restaurant, has
implemented several environ-
mentally friendly practices and
has plans for more.
"Our to-go boxes are made of


sugar cane. We have bamboo
flooring and teak furniture, which
are both sustainable," McGlasson
said. "Our greens are organic and
our eggs are from free-range
chickens. We hope to install solar
panels on our roof, too."
The Midway roasts its own
coffee beans, and to ensure they
are purchasing beans from rep-
utable farms, the McGlassons,
members of the nonprofit
Rainforest Alliance, travel to
inspect the farms themselves.

Both the Midway Cafe and

Volunteers building homes for critters 'as cute as can be'


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The endangered Key Largo
woodrat can only survive if it has
places to shelter.
And volunteers can make a
hands-on difference to the pro-
tected species at a Saturday ses-
sion on North Key Largo hosted
by Friends and Volunteers of
Refuges group.
During the three-hour effort,
volunteers will venture into
closed areas of the Crocodile
Lake National Wildlife Refuge
to landscape areas around stone
woodrat nests.
Volunteers should wear pants
and long-sleeved shirts. Workers
convene at the refuge headquar-
ters' Butterfly Garden, at mile
marker 107.5 on County Road
905.
"People can't believe we're
interested in saving a rat," said
Clayton DeGayner, who with
brother Ralph has contributed
hundreds of hours to woodrat
and Key Largo cotton-mouse
preservation. "But they're a lot
different from what you


would know as a rat."
"These guys are cute as can
be," DeGayner said. "They've
got these humongous ears....
They're very gentle animals and
good-parents. You fall in love
with them very quickly."
The Saturday effort aims to
provide additional protection to
the woodrat habitats, keeping the
nests dry (the woodrat only nests
in spots with a watertight roof of
some type, DeGayner said) and
more secure from predators.
"Just about everything is
stacked against the woodrat,"
DeGayner said. "The possibility
of extinction is greater than we
would like."
Volunteers like the DeGayner
brothers "are worth their weight
in gold," Refuge Manager Steve
Klett said. "They're a big part of
our refuge, and have greatly
increased our knowledge data-
base for the woodrat and cotton
mouse."
DeGayner said Ralph and he
became intrigued by the singular

"Holly Given, Andrea
Cockerham, Maddie Ingegno

coach Clint Arsenault said.
"They gave the goalkeepers


outstanding protection, help-
ing to secure the shutouts."
Arsenault credited fresh-
man Stephanie Lietaert, a sub-

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
girls soccer and basketball teams
each resume play Friday follow-
ing the school's winter break..
The soccer team, comprising
mainly seventh and eighth-.
graders, has played exceptionally
well this season. The girls entered
the holidays with a 9-3-1 record
after notching only two victories
all of last season.
The Dolphins earned their
ninth win Dec. 18 against Key
West High School's junior varsi-
ty, 3-1, in a physical matchup.
Friday's home game against
Keys rival Coral' Shores High
School, scheduled for 4 p.m., is


the team's regular-season finale.
The Hurricanes have handed the
Dolphins two of their only three
losses so far this season.
Marathon's district tourna-
ment is scheduled to begin Jan.
14.
The girls basketball team has
struggled thus far this season,
posting a 1-9 record.
They dropped two games in a
winter tournament hosted by Key
West Dec. 21 and 22.
The season has been a trying
one for the Dolphins, who have
lost players and endured a coach-
ing change after the team's first
game of the season.
Former girls soccer assistant
Amanda Hirschauer has taken
over the reins as coach and pro-
vided the hoops team with some
much-needed stability.
The girls travel to Westwood
Christian School at 5 p.m. Friday.

Lady Conchs


Key West lets
3-point lead
slip away
By DICK WAGNER
Keyneter Contributor


"It was one of those nights
when nothing went right,"
coach Glenn Hayes Sr. said in
the wake of his Key West High
School girls basketball team's
51-45 loss Monday to Mater
Academy in Miami.
The Conchs, who defeated
Mater by 19 points in
December, led 39-36 with
three minutes to play, but then
unraveled. They committed 14
of their nearly 40 turnovers in


the final period, in which they
scored just six points.
Key West, which was led
by Ja'Taure Mathis' season-
high 17 points, dropped to 9-5
overall and 2-2 in District 16-
4A.
The loss came after a two-
game weekend home series
that the Conchs split with
Summit Christian of West
Palm Beach. They lost, 50-48,
on Friday night, despite 21
points by sophomore Chelsea
Storr, but they won Saturday
morning, 37-33, without Storr,
who was attending a funeral.

Playoffs loom


for soccer Conchs


Girls win, tie

as the boys

take a pair
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


With the soccer season
winding down, the Key West
High School girls and boys
teams are looking toward the
playoffs with guarded opti-
mism.
With a 7-0 home victory
Friday night over.Westminster
Christian and a 1-1 tie Saturday
with visiting Miami Springs,
the Lady Conchs have an 11-4-
1 record and three games to
play before next week's District
16-4A tournament at Ted
Hendricks Stadium in Hialeah.
I"We were crisp and organ-
ized on Friday, but lackadaisi-
cal and flat on Saturday," coach
Scott Paul said. '"The team that
played Friday is ready for the
playoffs. Saturday's team will
be home after the first round of
the regionals."
Senior Kara Haack scored
two goals Friday night and
assisted on freshman Jasmine
Jones' goal on Saturday.
The Conchs, 10-0 in the dis-
trict, will be overwhelming


favorites to advance to the
regionals. If they do, they prob-
ably will play host to either
Cardinal Gibbons or
Archbishop McCarthy.
The Key West boys team
won two games in the weekend
Soccer Festival at Tommy
Roberts Memorial Stadium -
4-2 over Westminster Christian
and 2-1 over Miami. Springs.
Senior Marlon Briones
scored a goal in each of the vic-
tories and "dominated the mid-
field attack," said coach Jason
Clifford.
Sophomore Zach Harden's
defense sparked the Conchs
against Miami Springs. "He
played exceptional," Clifford
said. "He shut down their main
scoring threat."
Although the Conchs -
who played Marathon Tuesday
night in a game completed too
late for today's paper are
only 4-13, Clifford said he
believes they can upset Reagan
and Belen Jesuit at the district
tournament at Mater Academy
and reach the finals against,
most likely, Edison.
"We could surprise a few
people," Clifford said. "We
continue to get better every
week."


Canes fall Saturday


CANES / From 20

the No. 2 seed, will face No. 3
Archbishop Carroll in the
semifinal round (start time not
available at press time).
The rust from a long break
showed Saturday when the
Canes traveled to Key West to
face Westminster Christian.
1 Samantha Ragan booted a
goal just four minutes into the
game, but the 1-0 score stood
through much of the match.
"We dominated but were
unable to score," Arsenault
said.
Well into the second half,
Julia Hatfield gave the Canes
more breathing space with a
goal off a header. A few min-
trtes later, Amber Spaulding


scored on a header off a cross
from Ragan.
"We looked much better" at
Ransom on Monday, Arsenault
said. "It was good we played
Saturday."
Ragan and Spaulding
scored goals midway through
the first half- to give the
Hurricanes a 2-0 halftime lead
over the host Lady Raiders.
"We talked at the half about
corner kicks and getting better
organized to score on one,
which we hadn't done in a
while," Arsenault said.
Six minutes into the second,
Guenther perfectly headed a
corner kick to Ragan for a
"textbook" goal, said the
coach.
Brooks Burdick made it 4-0
with a goal midway in second.

George Mason wins

Orange Bowl Classic


It wins women's
division, ties
BU among men
George Mason University won
the women's division and tied
Boston College in the men's divi-
sion Saturday at the Orange Bowl
Swimming Classic in Key Largo.
With 427 points, George
Mason's swimmers placed first in
half of a dozen different woman's
events that attracted eight univer-
sities -to the Jacobs Aquatic
Center.
"I think the key is that our kids
were willing get up and race, no
matter what the competition,"
George Mason Coach Peter Ward
said. "It's always nice to win and
were thrilled to be here. It's a lot
colder in Virginia."
Boston College coach Tom
Groeden said it was the first time
one of -his swimming teams had
ever tied for first place in his 36-
year coaching career.
"With the structure of [swim-
ming] meets, it's hard to do," said
Groeden.
Boston College placed second
in the women's division with
403.5 points, while Minnesota
State University Moorhead was
third with 322 points. In the men's
division, Washington College was


third with 280 points behind
Boston College and George
Mason's 464 points.
The final event of South
Florida's Orange Bowl Festival
also attracted several Olympic
medal winners and contenders for
the 2008 Beijing Summer games.
Among those competing in
exhibition swims were Gary Hall
Jr., the fourth most-decorated U.S.
Olympic swimmer in history with
10 medals; George Bovell, a 2004
bronze medalist; and Guy Barnea,
a member of the 2008 Israeli
Olympic team.
Hall said he was training
extensively to compete for a spot
on the 2008 U.S. Olympic team.

'It was the same old thing'


Conchs fall
to St. Brendan,
plunge to 3-10
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It's always something with the
3-10 Key West High School boys
basketball team players getting
hurt, players missing practice,
players missing games, players
botching the fundamentals, play-
ers playing selfishly.
'Saturday night, it was fresh-
man point guard Keith Valdez
showing up with a sprained wrist.
That put the Conchs at a disad-
vantage they couldn't overcome
in a 56-49 loss to St. Brendan in a
District 16-4A game at the Bobby
Menendez Gym.
It was the third-lowest-scoring
game of the season for Key West,
which had averaged 83.5 points in
its previous two games.
A 3-point shot by David Ruiz
gave the Conchs a 25-24 lead late
in the second quarter, but they
never led again as the quick-pass-
ing Sabres scored at will, especial-


ly inside.
"It was the same old thing,"
coach Paul Davis said.
"Underneath, we're too inconsis-
tent. We don't have height to
begin with, but we don't get into a
good defensive stance. We just
stand there. And that makes it easy
for them to go around us."
The Conchs were led by
Vladimyr Sibera, who scored 13
points. Ruiz had 11 and Zach
Babich added 10. Guard Michael
Gallagher, who had averaged 23.5
points in the previous two games,
scored only six after getting into
early foul trouble.


A baseline drive by Ruiz cut
the lead to 46-44 with less than
four minutes to play, but the
Conchs then made two consecu-
tive turnovers that contributed to a
6-0 Sabres run.
Although the Conchs have lost
twice to St. Brendan this season,
Davis wasn't convinced that the
Sabres are better. Asked how his
team would fare if the cluW
played 10 times, Davis said,
"We'd win eight."
Key West, which played a late
game Tuesday at Mater Academy,
will play 7 p.m. district home
games Friday and Saturday
against Monsignor Pace and
Reagan, respectively.

in Saturday's Key West loss to the Sabres. The Conchs were
within two points of the Sabres with less than four minutes left,
but turnovers opened the gap.

Keys Fishing


Offshore
Funk and Wagnall's
defines offshore as "situated
or occurring at some distance
from shore." In the summer,
the distance can be 20 to 30
miles. In winter, the distance
is considerably less, as many
pelagic species forage closer
to the reef to find food.
W, Wahoo, dolphin and
blackfin tuna can all be
caught within sight of the
Keys, which are now only a
few miles "offshore" of the
reef.


Capt. Rob Corradi on the
Southern Comfort sailing out
of Whale Harbor Marina in
Islamorada had Jack and
Cathy Clark and family out
early in the week. The fami-
ly caught yellowtail snapper
at anchor and then slow
trolled live Speedos near the
bottom and boated a wahoo
of 37 pounds.
Capt. Chris Scott on the
Doghouse found a stingray
with cobia in tow. They
tossed live baits to the cobia
and boated one 44 pounds
and broke off another esti-
mated at nearly 70 pounds.

Flats, backcountry
It's been business as usual,
with fair to good snook action
with some redfish mixed in.r
Many guides drifted the main
customers crank on big lady-
fish using some as live bait
for sharks. Then the cold and
wndaind e.
Any- guide who ventured;
out late last week had a
tough time giving a bait
away. Capt. Lou Brubaker
grudgingly took a party out
Saturday that was previously
scheduled for Thursday. The
water temperature on his
Lowrance machine read
between 57 and 59 degrees
in Flonrida Bay.
However,'by the' week-
end`the wind had switched
to an easterly direction and
that will warm waters up
once again to wintertime
norms.

Cold water's still hot


VanDemark shows
that bonefishing's
a true skill

Bonefishing in sub-70-degree
.water? Good luck.
Then again, on Sunday mom-
ing, how about 66 degrees and to
my surprise, loads of bonefish?
I've been meaning to fish with
Capt. Tadd VanDemark for four
years. It's easy to think he knows
only redfish; since he and his
partner Kevin Shaw, who owns
Stiffy Push Poles, had just won
team of the west in last season's
FLW Redfish Tour.
One would be wrong.
VanDemark is one with anything
that is slimy and swims.
"A shallow-water guide can't
get trapped into one or two styles
of fishing only. I'm proud that I
can change like the weather. I
love it all redfish, snook, trout,
bonefish, permit, tarpon, sharks,
jacks and even patch-reef fishing
for snappers and groupers," he
says.
We'd been putting off this
filming session for my TV show,
"Reelin' the Keys with Cal," for a
month and finally Tadd said
regardless of water temperature
Sunday, let's do it.
Remember, we had the
strongest cold front to hit the
Keys in years last week, with
wind-chill temperatures reading a
hair south of 40 degrees
Thursday night.
Flash forward to Sunday
morning at the boat ramp in Key
Largo, where VanDemark may
have had second thoughts when
reading the 8:30 a.m. water tem-
perature of 63 degrees.
Bonefish 101 conventional
wisdom dictates that any water
below 70 degrees starts to verge
on severe uncomfortable condi-
tions for the gray ghosts. If one
would be unbalanced enough to
try anyway; then aim for deeper,
warmer water; stay oceanside,
where the water is always a few
degrees warmer than the back
bays and the Florida Bay side.
Wait until mid-day where the
sun is the strongest to warm the
water. Look for dark-bottom tur-
tle-grass flats where the sun will
heat up the water faster. And most
important, you need a sunny day
for visibility.
We did none or had none of

the above
scenarios.
But by
11 a.m., we
had caught
a n d
released
our third
bonefish
w i t h
weights
ranging
from 4 to 9t
pounds.
Cal Sutphin We had
found
schools of bonefish ranging from
just a few to well over 20. The
last fish caught was in water 67
degrees and in a depth of barely a
foot, with overcast skies on a
sandy patch. Go figure.
A client of VanDemark asked,
"When did you figure out bone-
fishing, Capt. Tadd?" His reply:
"I'llbe sure to let you know when
I do."
He may not be far off.



A reminder of a big event
coming to the Upper Keys for the
first time.
The Saltwater Sportsman
seminar series featuring George
Poveromo, host of "George
Poveromo's World of Saltwater
Fishing" on ESPN2 and a senior


editor for Saltwater Sportsman,
will be at Coral Shores High
School Jan. 19.
This is an opportunity for avid
anglers trying to improve their
game. The quality of speakers is
top rate and they'll be full of
information.
As Capt. Mark Schmidt, a
speaker on the 19th, said on my
radio program recently, "George
made it clear years ago that there
are no secrets. If you are a speak-
er, never hold back."
Can you imagine having
Schmidt, Richard Stanczyk, Rich
Tudor, Tony DelloSantos, John
Oughton and Jim Sharpe on the
stage fielding a barrage of ques-
tions? This is a chance where you
don't have to imagine it you
can live it.
Now's our chance to get to
them with the Poveromo truth
serum coursing through their
veins. A ticket to the Seminar
Series costs $55 and includes a
$50 Boater's World gift card (via
mail-in rebate with your next pur-
chase of $150) and other great
gifts.

series.com or call (800) 448-

Cal Sutphin hosts 'Reelin' in
the Keys' from 7 to 10 a.m. week-
days on radio station WFFG
