NAS jet noise,
Iraq, drilling

By KYLE TEAL

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson only had
one public comment to make
after his Key West town-hall
meeting Tuesday, directed
toward Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson and his Florida con-
stituents:
"Well, Mr. Mayor, I'd say
you've got a bunch of live
wires," he said, laughing.
The "live wires" packed Old
City Hall, inundating Nelson
with lengthy questions ranging
from issues as Worldly as the

Feds: 30 acres
need clearing for
species habitat
By PAMELA SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

An upcoming controlled burn
at the National Key Deer Refuge
on Big Pine Key has sparked a
heated debate about how best to
protect and maintain the delicate


local concerns such as the Keys'
affordable housing problems and
complaints of jet noise from F-18
Super Hornets that fly over Stock
Island.
Of the many complicated
issues to tackle in a mete hour,
the U.S. Navy's recently updated
Air Installation Compatible Use
Zone maps dominated the discus-
sion.
Those maps indicate flight
patterns and safety contours sur-
rounding Naval Air Station Key
West. The Navy is pushing the
Monroe County Commission to
adopt the contours for planning
purposes.

Marathon Mayor Pete
Worthington says a resolution

in the city's planned sewer con-


struction.
McCoy's resolution, sched-

proposed system into question
and requests state Department

trip to Washington, D.C., he would
bring the issue to the attention of
top-ranking military officials.
Retired naval aviator John
Hammerstrom of Tavemier launch-
ed the first jet-noise discussion. He
said Super Hornets emit 27 more
decibels than F-14 Tomcats and
there is no "compatibility."
Nelson wanted to know how
to fix it.
"I can get these answers that
you asked,"he said. "But what do
you want?"
Hammerstrom said he doesn't
want the Super Hornets out of the
Keys, but does want the Navy to
"evaluate their essential mission,
and mitigate their impact on the
community."
He, along with other jet-noise
critics who claimed they have a
difficult time communicating with
and gathering information .from
the Navy, received raucous
applause from audience members.
Other speakers said the noise
could cause financial, health and
quality-of-life problems, some
handing Nelson research packets
they'd put together. .One packet
addressed the likelihood of per-
manent hearing loss.
Nelson proved curious of the
dilemma, asking questions about
the base's three runways and if
there are any* known, abatement


procedures the base follows.
Familiar faces asked Nelson
about the often-studied, often-
discussed Keys affordable hous-
ing problem. Realtor and county
Planning Commissioner Donna
Windle said, "We're in a Catch-
22, and we desperately need your
help."
"We're going to work on it,"
Nelson replied, touching on a
possible federal housing
allowance for Key West.
On the possibility of national
catastrophic insurance that would
replace windstorm insurance in
Florida: "When you get hurri-
canes like we get ... there's no
one insurance company that can
cover that," he said.
Nelson's comments on nation-
al affairs stressed the important
duty Florida voters have in the
2008 election, saying Keys resi-
dents need to ask candidates
about issues such as Everglades
restoration and possible oil
drilling in the Gulf of Mexico..
He mentioned his lawsuit
against Democratic National
Committee Chairman Howard
Dean for boycotting Florida dur-
ing campaign season no
Democratic candidates are cam-
paigning in Florida after the
state bumped up its primary elec-
tion to Jan. 29.
"You Floridians could very
well be picking the next presi-
dent," he said, adding the Bush

DEP reviewing McCoy proposal


SEWERS / From 17

state's designation of "a number
of entities :.. to be the responsi-
ble parties for the sewering of
the Florida Keys" has led to a
"fragmentation of responsibility
and ... has produced a prolifera-
tion of small, less than efficient
systems."
McCoy requests in the reso-
lution that the state "commit the
resources of the DEP to serve as
the entity to manage the funding,
the design and the implementa-
tion to advance the provision of
wastewater treatment facilities
for the Florida Keys."
Worthington said Marathon is
its own sewer authority and that
the city's plans have already
been reviewed and approved by
DEP.
"I asked [McCoy] to write
thatt] any projects :apprQoved by


the DEP for design and funding
... be excluded from this resolu-
tion," Worthington said. "DEP
basically reviews projects and
approves them and they've
already done that for Marathon.
As far as design and criteria,
that's not their job."
DEP Environmental Admin-
istrator Gus Rios, who works in
the Marathon office of the
agency's South District, said the
resolution is under review at the
state level and an official
response will be forthcoming.
"We have looked at it and
there are some issues we need to
discuss further. We don't have
the authority to manage and
design wastewater utilities,
that's normally a function of
local governments," Rios said.
"With regards to the city of
Marathon, DEP would not sup-
port any delay in the implemen-
tatiorr pf the 2010 mandate. We :


support all municipalities mov-
ing forward with designs already
approved by the DEP."
McCoy has argued and his
resolution states that "a well
engineered, comprehensive
wastewater treatment system for
the Florida Keys will save this
county initially and for genera-
tions to come."
The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority had planned such a
project in Marathon, but the esti-
mate came in at $180 million.
"We couldn't afford that proj-
ect, so we became our own
wastewater authority. We've
moved forward on these smaller
plants, which are less money to
build," Worthington said.
Marathon's current project
has seven areas, each with its
own smaller treatment facility.
The first area of the project,
which will cost $82 million, is
under construction.,


administration isn't running the
country, satisfactorily because it
hasn't built a "bipartisan consen-
sus."
"By ballots instead of bullets,"
he said, "you've got the opportu-
nity to change policy."
On Iraq, Nelson said, "Lord
knows we did it all wrong going
in."
An effective strategy, he
explained, could lie &tn a diplo-
matic approach to pushing the
Iraqi government into local
autonomy and to stress fair distri-
bution of oil in that country rather
than drilled areas receiving unfair
amounts.
"You need the neighbors of
the region to buy in," he said.
Stock Island resident Diane
Beruldsen mentioned global
warming, prompting Nelson to
express an optimistic view of the
political will to address the envi-
ronmental concern.
"I think there is definitely a
shift in the political winds," he
said, adding that maybe "one sci-
entist out of 10,000" thinks it's a
false theory, but the majority take
it seriously.
After a speaker told Nelson
about a widespread concern that
the Keys are all about develop-
ers' interests, he asked, rhetori-
cally, if she wanted him to run for
governor.
"No, for president." Audience
members agreed.

BURN / From 1

healthy habitat for endangered
Lower Keys marsh rabbits.
Some local environmental-
ists and residents are opposed,
but refuge officials plan to
carry out the burn as soon as
weather permits.
Jon Wallace, prescribed-fire
specialist for the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service, said the burn
would restore that section of
the refuge to what it once was
- a savanna, or treeless plain
- and a perfect habitat.
"If you look at photographs
from the '50s and '60s, you see
that area was a green grass
savanna, which is a great habi-
tat for deer and marsh rabbits,"
Wallace said. "Now the but-
tonwood [trees] are encroach-
ing and we need to stunt those
so the grass can regrow."
Wallace said the rabbits
would then have more to eat
and hopefully breed and sur-
vive in greater numbers. He
said deer would also .use the
area for grazing, thereby being
less likely to stray into yards

road searching for meals.
Joan Borel, an environmen-
talist living on Summerland
Key, said she and a group of
concerned citizens have com-
piled a list of 29 reasons why
the burn should hot occur.


"The area they want to burn
is a wetland," Borel said.
"Some ecosystems, like pine
rocklands, are fire-dependent.
But wetlands are not; fire is
not natural in a wetland."
Borel contends that most of
the research done on Lower
Keys marsh rabbits has been
done on Boca Chica, which
she said features an open
grassy area that is not similar
to the habitat on Big Pine.

make Big Pine look like Boca
Chica. But rabbits in Big Pine
are adapting to this environ-
ment, so -why burn?" Borel
said. "And all this after we just
had that disaster on 1-4. A dry-
season burn? I don't under-
stand the logic."
Smoke from a prescribed
fire that leapt out of control on
a foggy night Jan. 9 is blamed.
for causing a chain reaction of
crashes on Interstate 4 in Polk
County involving some 70
autos. Four people were killed.
Wallace said precautions
are being taken to ensure the
burn will be safe. He said offi--
cials are watching the weather
from now through February
looking for the right combina-
tion of humidity, wind speed
and direction to be sure they
can contain the fire and keep
the smoke to a minimum
around developed areas.
Because the window of
opportunity will likely be
small, Wallace said residents
will receive only one or two
days' notice of the fire.
Announcements will be made
on the radio, and since the
refuge has partnered with local
health-care providers to identi-
fy in advance as many people
as possible with health prob-
lems especially those with
respiratory ailments living
in the area, those residents will

Air quality will be moni-
tored throughout the day of the
burn to ensure it falls within
federal guidelines.
Wallace said he understands
people's concern about fire
safety, especially after the Polk
county incident last week, as
well as a prescribed fire on Big
Pine in 2004. Wallace did not
oversee that burn, which he
said was ignited from the air.
"People thought that fire
was way too hot and intense,"
he said. "We're going to ignite
from the ground rather than the
air, and we're going to go slow
with a low intensity. It costs
more that way but if it helps
people feel more comfortable,
then it's worth it."
Burning by hand will cost
Fish & Wildlife $40 to .$50 per
acre, as opposed to $10 per
acre for burns ignited from the
air.
Wallace said personnel will
walk the area first to insure
there are no endangered ani-
mals in the path of the fire.
Firefighters will patrol the area
on foot and also in all-terrain
vehicles around the perimeter
to keep the blaze confined to
the designated area. A helicop-
ter will stand by in case of
emergency.
All those precautions are
not enough to satisfy Katie
Lyons. Lyons, who lives in the
Cohen subdivision across from
the National Key Deer
Refuge's famed Blue Hole,
said that as recently as
Monday she saw evidence of
juvenile marsh rabbits in the
area to be burned.
"It just makes me sick to
think they're going to do this
burn. We just found juvenile
pellets and juvenile footprints
in the mud," Lyons said. "That
place is full of grass and has
lots of flowers we have a
great food source there that's
even better than it was before
Hurricane Wilma."
Lyons said the hurricane
swept an 8-foot storm surge
over the area, destroying near-
ly all the vegetation. Both
Borel and Lyons said hurri-
canes are nature's way of con-
trolling growth in the wetlands
- not fire.
"We're just asking Fish &
Wildlife to stop the burn, or at
least postpone it or scale it
down," Borel said.

Peryam launches

campaign for office


Captain seeks
to replace Roth
as Keys sheriff
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Capt. Bob Peryam is the
first person to jump into the
race to replace Sheriff Rick
Roth, who's decided not to
seek another term after 18
years as the Keys' top cop.
Peryam announced his can-
didacy for the November elec-
tion on Monday. He said he has
not heard rumblings of any
possible opponents.
He's a captain in the
agency's Marathon substation
and police chief for the city.
He's been with the Sheriff's
Office for 27 years and worked
from Key Largo to Key West.
"I think it's a natural pro-
gression in my career and a
challenge I think I'm up to. It
will give me a chance to put all
my skills to the full test,"
Peryam said. "We're coming
into some [tough] timed eco-
nomically, especially with
budgets, and it will take some
hard work and creativity to
make that work."
Peryam said he has spent his
entire adult life with the
Sheriff's Office and that there
would be no better way to end
his career than by being
Monroe County sheriff.
"It would be a dream come
true. When you can make it to
the top of your game it doesn't
get any better than that," he
said. "I've been flattered and
humbled with so many people
-calling and talking to me."
Peryam said Roth has been a


mentor and
he would be
proud to suc-
ceed him.
"I've had
the best men-
tor there is in
law enforce-
ment as far
PERYAM as I'm con-
cerned. The
man has dedicated his entire
life to serving his country and
his community," he said. "By
no means can I fill his shoes.
I'm just looking to fill his posi-
tion."
"I'm not entitled to the posi-
tion; I have to go out and work
hard and earn it," he said.
A Michigan native, Peryam
served as a police officer there
before following his parents to
the Keys. He worked at John
PennekamRl Coral Reef State
Park in Key Largo before even-
tually joining the Sheriff's
Office.
Peryam holds a master's
degree in criminal justice from
the University of Cincinnati
and is a graduate of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation
Academy and the Southern
Police Institute Command
Officer Development Course.
Peryam serves on several
local boards and committees
including those for
Fishermen's Hospital, Keys
Energy Services, PACE Center
for Girls and the Salvation
Army. He is also a graduate of
both Leadership Monroe
County and Leadership
Florida.
Peryam will hold his kickoff
fundraiser at Boondock's
Restaurant on Ramrod Key
Feb. 2 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Weekend crash kills one


Troopers say
woman stepped
into highway
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Two separate U.S. 1 acci-
dents over the weekend left an
Upper Keys woman dead and a
Lower Keys woman in critical
condition.
A longtime Tavernier resi-
dent was killed while crossing
U.S. 1 on Plantation Key
Saturday.
Joyce Layton, 49, was
struck when she stepped into
the northbound lanes of U.S. 1
near mile marker 90 in the
Coral Shores High School area.
The left front of a 2005
Lexus driven by Maria
Fisherman of Tavernier struck
Layton around 9:42 p.m.,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.


Units with Islamorada Fire
Rescue responded and con-
firmed Layton died at the
scene.
Layton was Monroe
County's second traffic fatality
of 2008. Investigation into the
incident by Cpl. Pedro Reinoso
and Trooper Steven Miro con-
tinues.
, Layton worked as a cashier
at the Florida Keys Payfair
market for several years until
the mid-1990s. She later
worked at other local food
stores and retail businesses.
No information on memori-
al services was available at
press time.

Driver critical
Tina Ramlow, 39, of
Sugarloaf Key was flown by
air ambulance to a Miami trau-
ma center after her car
slammed into a tree near mile
marker 21 on Cudjoe Key
Sunday.


At press time, Ramlow
remained in critical condition,
according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Ramlow was driving her
2001 Mazda northbound on
U.S. 1 around 8:30 p.m. when
"the driver lost control and [the
Mazda] slid sideways across
the highway," according to the
FHP.
The passenger side of the
Mazda crashed into a large tree
on the west shoulder. Ramlow,
not wearing a seat belt, was
thrown across the front seat,
her head hitting the passenger
window and the tree.
The TraumaStar air ambu-
lance landed on U.S. 1 and
flew Ramlow directly to Ryder
Trauma Center. Monroe
County Fire Rescue and
Sugarloaf Volunteer Fire
Rescue units took part in the
rescue.
Trooper T.P. Reilly and
Reinoso are investigating the
cause of the crash.

Keys Opinion


Cast a yes vote

for flexible funding

Monroe County voters will be asked to renew a half-mill
property tax when they go to the polls Jan. 29.
Four years ago, Keys voters overwhelmingly (66 percent
voted yes) approved this shift to flexible funding to help
address teacher pay issues and provide school nurses for
Monroe County.
We trust voters to make the same, smart decision this time as well.
Early voting began Monday and absentee ballots have
already been mailed. And we're hoping for good voter turnout
at the polls Jan. 29. But that is not assured.
Thanks to national party politics, the presidential preferential
primary in Florida has become a confusion of national party
rules conflicting with state political leaders' agenda pushing
Florida's earlier primary.
As a result, Democrats face the prospect that their vote is
simply a beauty contest with Florida stripped of its delegates to
the Democratic national convention. Republican party leaders
also punished Florida for going early, but took away only half
the GOP delegates.
Independent voters, of course, will not be choosing in the
party primaries, which makes this appeal for the school flexi-
ble funding vote all the more critical.
There are two tax issues on the local ballot for all Monroe vot-
ers, regardless of party affiliation. The local tax question asks
voters to "Renew flexible funding for Monroe County Schools."
This will enable the School District to keep that half-mill
levy earmarked for teacher salaries and school nurses. A half-
mill is 50 cents for every $1,000 of assessed value, or $150 on
a $300,000 house.
Since voters first approved this measure, the district has man-
aged to increase average teacher salaries in Monroe by $10,000
a year.
Prior to the 2004 vote, teachers in Monroe made, on average,
$40,471. That covers salaries from beginning teachers to the
most senior teachers with advanced degrees.
In the 2006-07 schools budget, that average has now climbed
to $50,775, which has had a dramatic affect on attracting more
experienced teachers and reducing teacher turnover.
Three years ago, Monroe County schools opened their doors
with more than two dozen teacher vacancies. This year, that
was down to two vacancies.
And the quality of teachers hired has increased significantly,
from 35 percent "highly qualified" in 2005 to 80.5 percent
"highly qualified" as measured by state standards in the
latest round of hiring.
That's a track record any School District would envy.
The decision is simple: Vote yes on "Renew flexible funding."

Get creative to find money for the county's problems


EDITOR:
It's time our elected officials and the pow-
ers that be understand that the golden goose is
gone.
Residents are leaving the Keys to seek a
more affordable life elsewhere or are starting
to live in quiet desperation. The real estate
market is in shambles, affordable housing is
nonexistent and the labor market is shrinking.
A living wage is only available if you work
two or three jobs, and hope that one of them
gives benefits.
With these facts in mind, two issues recent-
ly in the news promise even more chaos for
local residents. A proposed local gas-tax
increase for road repair and Tallahassee's
refusal to subsidize the sewage treatment
mandate due to the budget crunch could pos-
sibly be added to the burden of higher taxes
and insurance fees already in place.
A couple of ideas come to mind.
Our roads suffer in part from seasonal
higher usage from autos, trailered boats and
large RVs coming to visit the Keys. Why not


put an entrance toll at the beginning of U.S. 1
south in Key Largo? Make the toll graduated
for the amount of axles per vehicle. Charge a
flat rate for commercial vehicles and allow
residents to purchase toll-free transponders or
windshield stickers. Charge residents a one-
time fee for the transponder or sticker but
allow them free passage on U.S.1.
I believe some of our sewage problem and
a lot of our loose roadway trash problems
stem from increased seasonal population.
Why not increase the bed tax and the fee for
rental permits, and dedicate the funds generat-
ed to sewage mandates and public works ?
There have to be creative solutions to our
budget problems. The local residents can only
give so much before giving up and moving
out.

Think about LVA when considering donating


EDITOR:
I have been executive director of Literacy
Volunteers of America-Monroe County the
past 16 years. I am writing to offer our his-
torical perspective and ask you for support.
Our agency has been in our community
for 24 years, We help individuals, children
and families with one-to-one and small -
group tutoring, free of charge. We believe
the ability to read and write is critical to per-
sonal freedom. Our mission is to help stu-
dents obtain personal goals through
increased literacy skills.
As our agency is struggling financially,
we read with interest about the Community
Foundation of the Florida Keys' Center for
Nonprofit Exbellence. We plan to check this
out. We don't expect, however, this new ini-
tiative will be able to bail out agencies that
are in deep trouble or keep agencies that
spend more than they take in from shutting
down when their money runs out.
As a professional grant writer, I can say
with certainty that the number of viable
grants available for our organization has
shrunk like cheap suits in the wash. With the
war and the economy, all not-for-profits are
going to need to be pluckier than ever to sur-
vive tough times ahead.
Our agency lost major federal funding two
years ago. We had to initiate change or face
extinction. We scaled down from 27 employ-
ees to two part-time staff members supported
with 100 volunteers.
We are still countywide. We never inter-
rupted services. The last two years have been
hard. As director, I took a pay cut of more
than 75 percent and have waited as long as
five months for a paycheck rather than put
my agency in the red. Like many of our vol-
unteers and students, I work multiple jobs,
wearing the hat of agency director one day,


bartender the next, mobile notary the next.
I'm not complaining we're still open.
The Literacy Volunteers have always had
great oversight. We don't owe anyone
money. Since we have been able to stay open
through our most difficult times, we are
slowly getting support from the community,
such as our good friends at the Key West
Sunrise Rotary of the Conch Republic, who
are putting on a spelling bee to raise money
Feb. 9. We plan to put in another grant
request to the Community Foundation soon.
We ask you for help.
If there are any benefactors in town who
want to help a good organization, please con-
sider LVA. We are not broke so you don't
have to fix us. But we could really use finan-
cial support to continue programs that are
not only worthwhile, they're life changing.

Kids get a special 'kiss'


EDITOR:
The local K.I.S.S. organization
(Kids in Special Situations) wishes
to sincerely thank all the donors
and volunteers that made this
Christmas season a good one for
more than 100 local kids. We
delivered packages that contained
clothes, toys, shoes and even bicy-
cles and bilingual computers.
A special thank you to Brian
and Dee Dee Schmitt of Coldwell


Banker Schmitt Real Estate, who
gave us a room with lots of space
to store and wrap all the gifts, plus
donations besides. Thank you also
to Banana Bay Resort, the
Hammocks Resort and to all those
who purchased the gifts, wrapped
then and, the best part, delivered
them.

Council doing outstanding job


EDITOR:
As full-time residents of
Marathon, we would like to congrat-
ulate the Marathon City Council for
the great job it is doing. The city has
put together a great team to assist the
council in its duties.
Thanks to the council for all the
time and effort each member devotes
to our city. People do not realize
what a heavy burden it is to sit on
the council. We want to thank the
council members for all they and the
previous councils have done for our
city.-
When we look back at how far we
have come since becoming a city and
how much we have accomplished in


the short time that we have been a
city, it is mind-boggling:
The land-use plan, zoning, events
field, awesome park and band shell,
upgrade of Sombrero Beach and
Coco Plum Beach, wastewater plan,
marina siting plan, mooring field,
upgrade of city boat ramps, develop-
ment of a cognitive team to handle
the city's affairs the list goes on.
Please remember that most of us
in Marathon are not very vocal. Just
because the council hears from a few
people that are dissatisfied does not"
mean that is the consensus of opin-
ions.

'Organic' food can be suspect


EDITOR:
You recently published a rant by
Michael Welber against the use of
agricultural chemicals and animal
health products in the production of
food for human consumption.
The Union of Concerned
Scientists has had the same fears
for about 40 years but has had vir-
tually no peer-reviewed scientific
papers to support their concerns.
The best estimates are the abandon-
ment of the use of agricultural
chemicals in the production of
crops would reduce the world's
food supply by about 20 percent.
The obvious question is who
decides which billion people are
going to starve to death. The writer
needs to address this issue unless
he is from Harvard or The New
York Times.
The use of animal health prod-
ucts is a sound way to ensure
healthy animals for consumption.
The research effort I managed three
decades ago spent millions on the
study of the .use of antibiotics in
feedstuffs and no adverse effects
were established; other companies
such as Merck and Lilly also fund-
ed millions on the same issue.
The major source of resistant
bacteria has consistently been
shown to hospitals and doctors. The


key issue is whether the chemical
residues in animal and plant prod-
ucts are safe. It was for this reason
that withdrawal times.were estab-
lished, after which a specific treat-
ment is to be discontinued.
Residues are monitored by both the
Food and Drug Administration and
the Environmental Protection
Agency in this country to ensure
food safety.
* It is, however, legitimate to
question whether foreign food pro-
duction is adequately monitored so
that produce out of season could
well be suspect, but this is no rea-
son to endorse so-called organic-
food produced in the United States.
The most publicized food con-
tamination incidents this year were
associated with California organic
food farms. Indeed, organic food
claims can clearly be viewed as a
scam and the biggest steal since the
Louisiana Purchase. It is an outrage
that the federal government was
conned on this issue to establish
definitions for organic foods.
I am waiting with baited breath
for their definition of inorganic
foods. It is even worse than the
scam that ethanol from corn saves
significant quantities of energy.

Help a kid see the choir
EDITOR:
The Middle Keys Concert Association
is presenting a special fundraising concert
featuring the world -renowned Vienna
Boys Choir on Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. at San
Pablo Catholic Church in Marathon.
Since this is a fundraiser, our normal
policy of allowing students to attend at no
charge does not apply. Neither does our
policy of giving free tickets to the music
teachers at Stanley Switlik Elementary


School and Marathon High School to be
distributed to parents who cannot afford
them to accompany their children.
So angelic donors are sought to sponsor
an interested student's attendance at the
concert (with accompanying parent). All
tickets cost $35.

Smorgasboat ride was the best


EDITOR:
What a delightful experience we had
celebrating my mom's 82nd birthday on
board the Smorgasboat's sunset cruise.
We were promptly boarded at Burdines
and then motored around Boot Key
Harbor. The quiet engine, which is pow-
ered by batteries, allowed us to converse
as we watched dolphins dive and surface
in their search for food. The roomy com-


fortable boat was more like a floating
party room than a boat. We then motored
into position to watch a gorgeous sunset
by the Seven Mile Bridge.
Our many thanks to Capt. Chris Boyle,
who made mom's party a success and one
that will be remembered and cherished.

Connect the Keys to larger hospitals


EDITOR:
The problem is that while there are plen-
ty of medical specialists in Florida, they are
just not in the right places to help our rural
population.
Specialists tend to be located in large
hospitals in our urban areas or at medical
schools and their teaching hospitals. Modem
electronic communications technology
could help solve many of Florida's rural
medical health-care specialty problems.
Rural hospitals and physicians could be
helped by being connected to Florida's tax
supported public medical schools and their
teaching hospitals with telemedicine tech-
nology. This technology is now quite inex-
pensive and is very sophisticated.
Our public medical schools and their
teaching hospitals should be legislated and


funded to meet more of Florida's rural
health-care needs through expanded
telemedicine diagnostics and consulting.
Teaching hospitals and their specialists
would be paid for the services they provide.
The cost to establish a telemedicine net-
work would be modest. The health-care
benefits could be significant.
Modem telecommunications technology
and our public medical schools and their
teaching hospitals should be used to help
meet the health care needs of all of
Florida's people. Please encourage our
elected state officials to support and/or
enact legislation to connect Florida's rural
hospitals to Florida's public medical
schools and their teaching hospitals.

Keys anglers to Crist: See algae firsthand

The state's top-ranking angler

algae-fogged waters, says a coali-
tion of conservation and fishing
groups.
Gov. Charlie Crist who
fished the Middle Keys during a
fundraising trip last year has

tion to join group members on a

"Gov. Crist likes to fish. He
says so over and over," said Jerry
Lorenz, research director at the
National Audubon Society's
Tavernier Science Center.
"We want to take him out fish-
ing and show him what the algae
blooms are doing to this magnifi-
cent fishery we call Florida Bay."
Lain Goodwin, president of
the Key Largo Fishing Guides
Association, said, "The state
needs to be better in tune with
how much sportfishing brings to
our economy, not just the Keys

-but up and down every coast."
The coalition's letter sent ear-
lier this week has reached Crist's
office, Lorenz said.
"While we haven't had a
direct response, we do know it
was put in front of him," he said.
"It's been brought up."
Recent cold weather reduced
the extent of the blue-green algae
bloom, which in October was
estimated to cover more than 300
square miles. "It easily encom-
passed more than a third of the'
bay, probably closer to half,"
Lorenz said.
While chilly water "makes it
much harder for the algae to sur-
vive," Lorenz said, "the bloom
has persisted. It's already made it
through one winter. When the
water starts to warm up again, the
bloom could explode."
The blue-green algae does not
directly kill marine organisms
like the toxic red-tide algae, but it
is far from harmless. The most
obvious effect is that it turns the
bay's once-clear waters into a
green and murky stew.
"Water that.used to be crystal
clear is now green, and you can't
see 6 inches," Goodwin said of
conditions in the bay north of
Key Largo.


"There are areas where we
would go look for redfish and
snook but now you can't see
through the water," he said.
"There's one area I used to fish
30 or 40 days a year, and now it's
zero."
The lack of sunlight kills bot-
tom-dwelling species, particular-
ly sponges.
"That affects species like lob-
ster and shrimp that depend on
sponges," Lorenz said.
"Even seahorses, for the mat-
ter," Goodwin said.
Much of Florida Bay acts as a
nursery area for fish species criti-
cal to Florida's sport and com-
mercial fishing industries.
"It's not just the fishing at risk
but the bay's nature," Goodwin
said. "There used to be a spot in
two feet of water where hundreds
of gag grouper schooled while
they were changing sex. They're
gone now, and I don't think
there's any other place you see
that happen."
Fishing guides and some con-
servation groups suspect the
bloom in the northeast bay that
extended from Blackwater and
Barnes sounds to Biscayne Bay
was triggered by a soil-mixing
process that mulched greenery


along the new U.S. 1 construction.
The state Department of
Transportation and South Florida
Water Management District have
contended that if the process did
have any effect, it was minimal.
Lorenz said he believes the
larger bloom can be traced to
extended dry weather that low-
ered freshwater flows through the
Everglades into the bay.
"I came to the Keys in 1989
when the water was still clear,
and then we got the first big
bloom," he said. "It scared the
bejeebers out of me. I watched
the bay die before my eyes."
He said, "We're still using
those same water-management
practices and they need to be
changed. I believe that's the pre-
eminent problem in Florida Bay.
It may not cause all the problems
out there, but I believe it's at the
root of most."
Signers of the letter to Crist
include representatives of
Audubon of Florida, Bonefish and
Tarpon Unlimited, the Everglades
Foundation, Florida Keys Com-
mercial Fishermen's Association,
Keys fishing-guides groups, the
Snook Foundation, the National
Parks Conservation Association
and World Wildlife Fund.


Gibson targets words not to live by


Commissioner
tries cleaning
store windows
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

T-shirt shop owners on Duval
and surrounding streets in Key
West will soon be familiar with a
list of seven dirty words.
Some of those -four-letter
words used to appear in shop
windows and many still do,
even after city meetings were
held to reach a compromise with
shop owners to get the obscene
language off the street.
The list, created by City
Commissioner Barry Gibson, is
the latest effort to "clean up" the
island's most famous strip, with
hopes to make it more appropri-
ate for families, officials say.
He says a volunteer sheet will
soon be available for businesses
to sign if they're interested in
cooperating with the city.


"It's going to be a voluntary
sign-up thing," Gibson said.
"There are quite a few [business-
es] that have already complied."
Officials decline to say which
businesses had complied.
Before the 1970s, shop win-
dows weren't an issue, Monroe
County historian Tom Hambright
said.
A monumental transformation
took place in 1974, according to
Hambright, when the U.S. Navy
shut down Naval Station Key
West, cutting back on the number
of people living in the area.
In one day that year, Naval Air
Station spokesman Jim Brooks
said, Key West lost 8,000 on-base
employees.
"That's when the tourism
economy took effect," Hambright
said, adding that before then, mil-
itary was the No. 1 economic
source in Key West, followed by
shrimping and tourism. I
Businesses found that T-shirts
make popular souvenirs; the


shops started sprouting up in
what began to look like a farm-
land made for tourists.
But now some of the shops are
taking their First Amendment
right too far, commissioners and
community leaders argue.
Bascom Grooms, president of
the Key West Chamber of
Commerce, said the chamber's
goal is to "work together with
those merchants to move [offen-
sive language] away from the
window," he said. "It's kind of a
poor image of the island," even
for locals.
The move won't offer the
shop owners a guaranteed finan-
cial advantage, Gibson admits,
though "if they have less-offen-
sive stuff in their windows,
maybe they'll actually have peo-
ple go inside," he said.
Gibson isn't targeting shop
owners for placing bongs,
hookahs or other potential drug
paraphernalia in their windows.
Those, he says, are a separate
issue.

Soldier Ride


rolls through


It starts Friday
in Upper Keys,
then heads south
The annual Wounded
Warriors' Soldier Ride is com-
ing to the Keys Friday and
Saturday.
The cross-country cycling
event is designed to aid in the
rehabilitation of men and
women who return home with
injuries incurred in military
conflicts abroad.
The Soldier Ride began as
a cross-country bicycle ride in
2004 by Chris Carney, a New
Yorker who bicycled across
America to raise public
awareness and support for
injured military recovering in
hospitals throughout the coun-
try. Other severely wounded
soldiers were inspired to help
him along the route and are
now part of the cross-country
bicycle ride.


Keys public safety agen-
cies will provide a procession
and escort for the soldiers as
they travel the island chain.
Friday, the procession will
start at 11 a.m. from Coral
Shores High School in
Tavernier. It will travel along
the Old highway and continue
on to Holiday Isle Resort,
where the soldiers will stop
for lunch.
They will continue from
mile marker 58 to the south
end of the Seven Mile Bridge,
riding through Marathon
around 2:45 p.m. A stop is
planned at the- Marathon
American Legion around 3:30
p.m.
Saturday, the soldiers will
ride into Key West, beginning
from Naval Air Station Key
West at 11:15 a.m. There will
be a procession through Old
Town that will continue on to
Truman Annex.


Deadline nears

for college plan


Prepaid tuition
helps families
save big money
All but one of the 50 top pay-
ing professions in the United
States requires a college diploma,
education officials say.
Citing the U.S. Labor
Department, they say someone
with a college degree will earn on
average $1 million more over a
lifetime than someone without a
degree.
With that in mind, the Florida
Prepaid College Plan is winding
down its latest enrollment period;
it ends Jan. 31. Since the plan
began 20 years ago, more than
850,000 Florida children have
been enrolled.
At current prices, the cost of a
four-year university tuition plan
for a newborn is about $3 a day,
or $93.12 a month. Think about
it: That $3 is what you would pay
for a cup of fancy coffee or a


movie rental (the price of a
Florida Prepaid College Plan
depends on the age or grade level
of your child).
Families can purchase tuition,
local fee and dormitory housing
plans, plus a new tuition differen-
tial fee plan, for use at Florida's
11 public universities and 28
community colleges. The plan's
value is transferable to most
accredited private and out-of-
state colleges.
The Florida Prepaid College
Plan is financially guaranteed by
the state. Once a plan is pur-
chased, payments do not
increase. And it's a tax-free 529
college savings plan.
Families can enroll online at
www.florida529plans.com
or request an enrollment kit and
paper application by calling
(800) 552-4723. Applications
must be submitted or postmarked
by .Jan. 31 to receive 2007-08
plan prices.

Transfers go back to Planning Board


Singh argues
they're necessary
for heads in beds
By KYLE.TEAL
kteal@keyrioter.com

A series of leftover transient-
rental licenses from the nearly
completed Parrot Key Resort on
North Roosevelt Boulevard in
Key West may be transferred to
Old Town properties, depending
on the city Planning Board's deci-
sions Thursday night.
"You have to remember we
are a tourist-based economy,"
developer Pritam Singh said.


"The tourist base can grow ... but
because of a whole bunch of rea-
sons over the past year I think
are good reasons we've lost a
lot of hotel rooms."
There are about 1,000 rooms
offline due to redevelopment,
according to a recent Monroe
County Tourist Development
Council study.
"If you don't have as many
beds," Singh said, "you can't put
as many heads in the beds."
Singh owns Parrot Key, which
was the 157-room Hampton Inn
until it was demolished more than
two years ago..When completed,
Parrot Key will feature 74 condo-

location.
Singh is pushing the sale of his
66 available transient licenses
from the old hotel. Some such as
like Key West businessman Ed
Swift view the licenses as wise,
long-term investments.
Swift wants to purchase the
licenses for his properties at 201
and 213 Simonton St., nine mar-
ket-rate units that don't rent for
cheap. Both Singh and Swift say
that if the units get transient sta-
tus, there would be no loss of
workforce housing.
Singh wants to transfer nine
licenses, but the Planning
Department has said-the large
size of the Simonton apartments
means most of the transfers
would require at least two licens-
es, totaling 16 for all nine units.
Swift said. his tenants just
signed two-year leases so morph-
ing his units into transient rentals
is not likely to happen soon:
The Planning Board must
approve the transfers first, a feat
not always accomplished. In mid-
June, a Monroe County Circuit
Court hearing resulted in a deci-
sion from Judge David Audlin
that ultimately stopped Singh
from transferring licenses from
the old Hampton Inn to Old
Town.
However, many other licenses
have successfully been trans-
ferred, city planning documents
from last year reveal.


Some community members
have voiced opposition to the
proposal, including local activist
Tom Milone, who's expressed
concerns about the transfer ordi-
nance to city officials numerous
times via e-mail and during City
Commission meetings.
Milone argues that granting
the transfers would violate city
rules. Singh says the City
Commission passed the ordi-
nance three years ago, and con-
cerns should've been expressed
then.
"All of the [transfers] that I've
applied for are grandfathered in,"
Singh said. "Lets fight about


something that's worth fighting
about."
Also on the agenda for the
Planning Board, which meets at 6
p.m. Thursday at Old City Hall
on Greene Street:
The potential transfers from
Parrot Key: one license to 427
Catherine St., two to 600 Duval
St. and two to 1075 Duval St.
A major development plan
for 21 residential units at 119-135
Simonton St. is up for discussion.
A proposal for the owner of
1219 Duval St. to purchase two
transient licenses from 807-811

Casa Marina Estates LLC.

The Florida Keys National

The other partners, Dolphin
Safari Charters and Sunny Days

"Dolphin SMART's approach
to protecting wild dolphins by
working with the businesses that
depend on them is an excellent


example of the value of partner-

175 years and still enduring


St. Paul's reaches a milestone


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


It's been the location of
countless weddings, funerals,
communions and other passages
in life.
Now St. Paul's Episcopal
Church at Duval and Eaton
streets in Key West is marking,
its own passage its 175th,
anniversary.
The church has endured
since 1832, when the new con-
gregation held its first service
that Christmas Day. It's even
been blown down twice by hur-
ricanes and burned down once.
St. Paul's was actually begun
in .1831 at the request of the
City Commission in a. petition


to the bishop of New York to
send a priest and establish a
parish.
Rev. Sanson K. Brunot was
sent as the first rector. At that
first service on Christmas Day
1832 (from which the 175th
anniversary dates), the congre-
gation signed an "act of associ-
ation" with 'the Episcopal
Congregation in Key West to be
called St. Paul's Church.
The first vestry was elected
April 8, 1833, and the first
church building was erected in
1842 but torn apart by a hurri-
cane in 1846. Rebuilt, it was
destroyed again by fire in 1886.
The third building was
blown down by another hurri-
cane on Oct. 1J, 1909," 63


Celebratory events


Several events are
planned to mark the 175the
anniversary of St. Paul's
Episcopal Church:
At 7 p.m. Friday, an
anniversary dinner dance is
set for the parish. hall.
+ At 9 a.m. Sunday, a
grand procession with cler-
gy, choir, church groups
and local dignitaries makes
its way fr9m Eaton Street to


years to the day of the first. The
present church was completed
in 1919 and repaired and
restored in the 1990s.
There have been more than


Whitehead and Southard,
and back down Duval
Street to the church, where
a high Mass at 9:30 a.m. will
be celebrated. A breakfast
will follow at 11 a.m. with an
open house and tours of
the church and Memorial
Garden beginning at noon.
+ A picnic for the con-
gregation- is planned -for
noon Jan. 26 on Shark Key.


30 clergy members .who have
served as rector, with the Very
Rev. David R. Wilt as the pres-
ent rector. Today, there are more
than 400 church members.

try.

water golden crab, conch chow-
der, conch fritters and conch

Loguercio sets new mark


Goals record
comes during
5-1 victory
By KEVIN WADLOW

Coral Shores rewrote the boys
soccer record book Friday.
Senior forward Mike Loguercio
scored four goals in a 5-1 victory
over Miami Country Day, giving
Loguercio the Hurricanes' single-
season record at 27 goals.
After tying the record at 23
goals, Loguercio endured a cou-
ple scoreless matches.
"It was stressful," Loguercio
said. "It seemed like I was never
going to get another one. Now it
feels good pretty good. Of
course, I couldn't have done any
of it without my teammates."
Coral Shores moved its regu-
lar-season record to a solid 10-4
heading into a match against
Westminster Christian earlier this
week (results not available at
press time).
The Westminster match fin-
ishes the regular season. A sched-
uled Friday home match against
Chaminade has been cancelled.
The Hurricanes next head to the
District 16-3A Tournament as the
second seed. The tournament opens

Country Day evened the score

fourth, on a kick-through assist

earned an assist on the fifth goal,
making passes to set up Loguercio
in front of the Spartan net.
"We made some defensive
adjustments and had a real good
second half," said Bosque. "Chris

lent game, and Elvez Sosa and

The Marathon High School

year in games against Keys rival
Coral Shores High School,
falling to the Hurricanes' junior
varsity Friday, 4-2.
Coral Shores has accounted
for three of the Dolphins' four
losses this season, as they fin-


ished their regular season 9-4-1
and placed second in their dis-
trict.
Dolphins coach Dennis Doll
said he felt the team lost its edge
over the Christmas break,
though he was happy to see the
team competitive against a
strong Hurricane program.
"We've lost to them three
times but we've gotten closer
each time," Doll said. "We

A Hurricane-Dolphin clash
Thursday in Tavemier ends the
home slate for the Coral Shores
boys basketball team.
"Our biggest challenge now
is showing we can beat the good
teams," Hurricane coach Andy
Thiery said. "We have to play
better than we have been."
The Hurricanes split a pair of
games this week, raising their
record to 5-7 headed into a
Tuesday game at District 16-3A
rival Ransom Everglades (score


not available at press time).
Thursday's game against
Marathon High School tips off at
about 7:30 p.m., following a 6
p.m. JV game.
Marathon won the season's
first meeting, 69-62, in
December.
The Hurricanes finish the reg-
ular season with road games at
Key West High School on Jan.
24, and at Archbishop Curley on
Jan. 29.
When the District 16-3A
Tournament opens Feb. 5, Coral
Shores already knows it'll face
Ransom in a semifinal game
between the district's No. 2 and
No.. 3 finishers in the regular sea-
son. The order was determined
Tuesday.
Last Thursday, Coral Shores
cruised to a 67-30 win over an
outmanned Maritime and
Science Technology squad.
Sammy Leon hit 6-of-7 three-
point shots to lead the Canes in
scoring with 20 points.
Chris Noble scored 14 points
in limited action after the Canes
rolled out to a 32-7 lead after the
first quarter. "That's a record


quarter for us this year," Thiery
said.
Randell Jackman scored 12
points, while Stephen Fowler
scored six. Anthony Whitehead
and Norman Dixon each scored
five.
But the confidence built
against MAST evaporated
Monday in a 72-47 loss to a
capable Miami Country Day
squad (15-3).
"We got down by 20 in the
first half then fought back to get
within eight points," Thiery said.
"We had some calls go against
us, but Country Day was the bet-
ter team. They put a lot of pres-
sure on us defensively."
Coral Shores put three play-
ers in double figures Noble
with 15, Whitehead with 13 and
Ray Ferro with 12 but it wasn't
enough.
"Anthony Whitehead had one
of his better games, but we need
more than three guys to beat a
good team," Thiery said.
On Feb. 1, the Hurricanes
will play a fundraising game
against Coral. Shores alumni. A
barbecue dinner at 6 p.m. pre-
cedes the game.

quarter that helped Key West stave off Reagan in a 45-40
victory Saturday at the Bobby Menendez Gym.


Storr 's treys

rally Lady Conchs


Guard scores
21 in victory
over Reagan
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


When the Key West High
School girls basketball team
needs a lift, sophomore Chelsea
Storr is always there to provide it.
Storr made five 3-point shots
in a 21-point performance
Saturday afternoon as the Conchs
defeated Ronald Reagan, 45-40.
The victory gave the Conchs,
who lost to Monsignor Pace, 42-
38, on Friday, a split of their
weekend District 16-4A games,
and improved their overall record
to 10-6. The team won only three
games last season.
Storr is a multifaceted guard
who likes to shoot from the
wings, but is also adept at barrel-


ing to the basket and setting up
teammates for shots. She had a
crucial assist late in the game,
getting the ball :to Daphne
Barnett, who swished a 3-pointer
that kept Reagan at bay.
"Her job is to shoot," coach
Glenn Hayes Sr. said of Storr.
"But she can play three or four
positions."
The Conchs would have upset
Pace if they had made more than
10 of 33 free throws. They were
almost as bad from the line
against Reagan, making 10 of 32.
"It's all mental," Hayes said.
"They make them in practice."
Key West never led against
Pace and never got closer than
four points. A layup by Alicia
Arrazola off a Storr steal cut the
margin to 37-33 with 3:40 to play,
but Pace made enough free throws
down the stretch to hang on.

Dolphins knot


Victors at 2-2


Regular season
ends on Friday
against Orlando
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Officiating issues and a short
playing field threw the
Marathon High School boys
soccer team off its- game
Saturday, Dolphins coach Jim
Murphy said.
' Marathon played to a 2-2 tie
against Miami Christian School,
a team the Dolphins defeated
handily earlier this season. It
was the team's fourth tie of the
season.
"We've had a lot of ties I
think we could have pulled off,
but at least we didn't lose
them," Murphy said.
Murphy admitted the
Dolphins (3-7-4) underestimat-
ed the Victors, which led to-
them falling behind early.
"I thought we would handle
the team easily and I was plan-
ning on playing everyone,
which didn't happen," Murphy
said. "We picked it up in the
second half and started moving
the ball.
That was no easy feat, either,
since Murphy said the field at
Miami Christian was only
around 65 yards long.


"It was a really small field.
You couldn't dribble the ball
because it was too congested to
move around," he said. "We
started shooting from 30 yards
out, which was almost midfield
and the shots were good. The
goalies were getting peppered
all game."
Marathon fell behind early,
but tied the game on a Matt
DeFillips goal. Murphy said
Johnaton Guzman carried the
ball toward the net and passed it
to DeFillips from just outside
the 18-yard box for the easy
score.
"It was four yards away from
the goal and so Matt was able to
just tap it in," Murphy said.
Down 2-1 at halftime,
Marathon tied the game on a
George Hoffman goal. Hoffman
netted a direct kick after a
Victors' foul from 30 yards out,
Murphy said.
Murphy said the Dolphins
began to take control of the
game as the second half wore
on, but questionable officiating
saw three Marathon goals called
back due to offside infractions.
"It was an interesting game
to say the least," Murphy said.
The Dolphins play their reg-
ular season finale Friday, a 7
p.m. home game against
Orlando Lutheran Academy.

field and beat two defenders
before hitting the far side of the
net. "That was what we have
been waiting for Krizzie to do all
season taking- players on by
herself and then finishing for a
goal," coach Scott Paul said.
Killian took a 2-1 lead in the
second half on a penalty kick,
but Menez tied the game when


she volleyed in a missed shot by
Kara Haack.
The Conchs returned after the
game to Key West, but were up
at 5 Saturday morning for the
trip to North Broward Prep.
Key West was stymied by the
Eagles until Menez scored after
a run at the keeper to break a
scoreless tie. Then, with five
minutes left in the half, Haack
scored on a penalty kick to make
it 2-0.
Goalie Ashley Stephenson's


bid for a shutout was denied
when North Broward scored
with less than two minutes to
play in the second half.

Team places
fifth at meet,

By DICK WAGNER

Led by senior Ralph Major,,
who won the 189-pound divi-
sion, the Key West High
School wrestling team fin-
ished fifth in a 16-team.invita-
tional tournament Saturday at
Barron Collier High in
Naples.
Major, who has returned to
the mat after correcting aca-
demic problems,, defeated
Naples Lely's Louga Isme in
the title match.
"Ralph got put on his back,
but he pinned him in the third
period," said coach John
Moeller.
Major, who was fifth, in last
year's Class 1-A state meet,
hopes to become a state cham-
pion this season.
"He's wrestling better than


ever, and I honestly don't
know how he does it," Moeller
said. "He didn't go to a camp,
and he's wrestled less this sea-
son, but he's like a lion."
Moeller said Major. even
held his own against a 197-
pound college wrestler during
a late-December visit to Key
West by the John Carroll
University team.
Major's return boosts a
Conch team that has gained
confidence and is steadily
improving against some of the
best competition in the state.
Cody Aydt (160 pounds)
finished third Saturday; Eli
Labrador (140), Dylan Barber
(130), Cody Van Buren (125)
and Oscar Fernandez (119)
each finished fifth, and
Gregory Garcia (112) finished
sixth.
The Conchs return to
Naples for a meet Friday with
Naples High and Golden Gate,
both of whom they outpointed

Hurricane freshman Stephanie

25-yard shot, before Dolphin
freshman Kelley Struyf tied the
game with a long shot of her
own. The game was tied 1-1 at
the half.
After another Canes goal,
Marathon seventh-grader
Jasmine Delacruse scored off a
Megan McKenna pass to tie the
game at 2-2.
"She fought -through two
defenders and made a beautiful
shot and scored," Doll said.
* Doll said Coral Shores (8-3)
began to frustrate the Dolphins
in the second half and eventu-
ally scored twice more to put
the game out of reach. Amber
Spaulding scored twice for the
Canes and, Cerene Arsenault
also netted a goal.
Doll said the loss would not
put a damper on what has been


an exciting turnaround season
for the girls team.
"We're a young team and if
these girls can keep it together
I think we should have more
kids 'coming out next year
because they see what can hap-
pen," Doll said. The team is
made up mostly of seventh-
and eighth-grade players and
will graduate only one senior,
Celena Mora.
Doll credited assistant
coach Lynn Landry with help-
ing turn the team around as
well this year.
"He's really helped the girls
and he gets along good with
the kids," he said.

ning streak into today's District
16-3A soccer tournament at
Gulliver Prep.
But their opponent in the 3
p.m. tournament semifinal is
Archbishop Carroll the last
team to hand the Lady Canes
(13-3-1) a loss.
Winner of today's game
between the Canes and the
Bulldogs advances to the cham-
pionship game at 3 p.m. Friday,
most likely against tournament
host Gulliver.
Both teams to reach-the dis-
trict championship game

"We plan on being there" in
the regional playoffs, head
coach Clint Arsenault said.
Coral Shores has been on a-
mission since squandering a 2-0
lead over Carroll, ending in a 3-
2 home loss Dec. 7.
The Lady Canes beat Carroll
in a 2-1 rematch played in a hol-.
iday tournament.
Coral Shore kept its streak
alive in the regular-season finale
at home Friday, a 6-0 shutout of
Miami Country Day.
Brooks Burdick, Samantha
Ragan and Jenn Jenkins all
scored for the Lady Canes.
Coral Shores let some under-
classmen regulars travel with the
Hurricane junior varsity to play
the varsity Lady Dolphins in a 4-
2 win at Marathon High School,
also on Friday.
"That gave our graduating
seniors more time on the field in
their last home game," said the
coach.
A halftime ceremony honored
the program's seniors: Alex
Barron, Burdick, Erin Fry, Chelsea
McCullough, Gaby Munoz,
Aracelli Omelas, Val Ostenson,
Ragan and Brittany Wood.


Palmer ends Canes' streak


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com .


The Lady Hurricanes saw
their three-game win streak
stopped Saturday but Coral
Shores basketball coach Dan
Smith will not complain.
"That was our best game of the
season," Smith said of the road
loss to Palmer Trinity, 55-43.
"We basically were limited to
six players, and they played their
butts off," Smith said. "We've
won three of our last four games,
so the girls have taken a positive
step forward."
A Palmer standout scored 30
on the Canes "and could have had
more except she made about 20
assists," Smith said. "She wasn't
big but she can play."
Coral Shores got a 15-point
game from scoring leader Latrice
Johnson, a freshman.
Senior center Ana Ismer con-
tributed a strong game in the
paint. Ismer scored nine points
and grabbed "about 25
rebounds," Smith said. "She was
dominating on the boards."
The Hurricanes (4-7) pulled to
within two points late in the sec-


ond quarter but the Lady Falcons
slipped out to an 11-point halftime
lead. Coral Shores largely played
Palmer even in the second half.
Results of a Tuesday game
against Key West High School
were not available at press time..
The Lady Canes returned
from holiday break Thursday
with a 34-15 win over Maritime
and Science Technology, giving
the Upper Keys squad a three-
game win streak going back to


Dec. 17.
Johnson scored 13 points.
Ismer scored eight and guard
Cassandra Howard had seven.
Coral Shores has four games
remaining in the regular season,
including a game at Ransom
Everglades today.
Coral Reef is scheduled to
visit Tavernier for a 3 p.m. Friday
game, and Carrollton travel to
Coral Shores for a 4 p.m.
Monday game.
The regular season ends Jan.
25 at Marathon High School.


Struggles continue


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccaithy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
girls basketball team dropped
two games over the weekend to
district rivals Westwood
Christian School and Miami
Christian School.
The Dolphins defeated
Westwood earlier this season to
earn their lone victory, but coach
Amanda Hirschauer said the
Warriors added a strong player


since they last met.
"She was tall and could shoot
threes; she- was a very well-
rounded player," Hirschauer
said, noting the team's inability
to slow her down led to the 45-
21 loss.
Hirschauer said the team con-
tinues to start slow at the begin-
ning of games, forcing it to play
from behind throughout. The
Dolphins held Westwood to just
five points in the fourth quarter.
"Our main problem is the
first quarter and getting into the
rhythm of the game, that's what
we heed to work on. We're get-
ting down 10 or 15 before we
even score," she said.
Junior Vanessa Sardina led
the Dolphins with six points in
Friday's game.
"Vanessa was probably the
most consistent player offen-
sively and defensively. She was
getting the ball to the basket
[and] she rebounded well,"
Hirschauer said.
In Saturday's 60-20 loss to
Miami Christian, Hirschauer
said freshman forward Alaina
Davis played a strong game.
"She's learning how to play
the post and realizing she can be
an asset under the basket," she
said.
Hirschauer said she was
pleased with the team's balance
offensively, as seven players
scored for the Dolphins. Davis
led the team with six points.
Marathon (1-11) will travel to
Palmer Trinity School Friday at
7:30 p.m. and is scheduled to
host Spanish River High School
out of Boca Raton Saturday.
That game is slated to tip off at 7
p.m.

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, January 16,2008
KEYNOTER 1


Offshore
With much-improved
weather, a few charter cap-
tains cruised offshore to
check out the Islamorada
hump. All reports from the
seamount area indicate the
tuna are on the small side and
not really worth the ride. But
the reef action is pretty good.
A couple of Whale
Harbor charter boats did
some deep dropping recently.
Capt. Wes King on the
Hopalong had a good catch
of red snapper on two trips.

Reef
According to Capt. Paul
O'Donnell on the Skipper,
the sailfishing is picking utp
since the cold snap of last
week. The size, and number
of the king mackerel is
increasing, too.
O'Donnell said his party
boated kings weighing 40,
30 and a few in the 20-
pound range. There are also
still some wahoo mixed.

Gulf, bay
The Spanish mackerel are
still the mainstay of Gulf
fishing action. Capt. Dave
Borras ran his skiff out to the
Sprigger Bank area and had
a good day on nice-size
macks. He confessed, "A
couple of cobia snuck uip on
us and were gone before :
anybody could cast to them."

Flats, backcountry
The backcountry is
rebounding nicely with water
temperatures in the upper
60s. Recent newspaper arti-
cles confirm what many
guides reported, that there
was significant fish kill with
the ultra-cold conditions last
week.
Captains Bill Wert and
Chris Barron fished the
Snake Bight Channel near
Flamingo with good results.
The duo caught lots of snook
some black drum and a few
redfish rolled in. The consen-
sus is the snook have not
moved back into the area
since the cold.

KING FOR A DAY:
Tavernier's
:Richard Black
came home for
,;, the December
break from
college and went
back to East
Cape to try to
catch tripletail.
g `4However, he
landed this
kingfish, weighing
39.5 pounds,
caught without
a wirer leader
on mono.


Sailfishing cools down
Sailfishmng cools, down


But not the
number of
sail tourneys

With the recent blast of arctic
air to the Keys, sailfishing sur-
prisingly remains slightly off.
Maybe we all started getting
accustomed to extraordinary hot
bites of sailfish as we saw in 2005
and 2006. Or maybe this is more
of the norm in what we've seen in
2007 and so far in 2008. Either
way, each sailfish tournament
brings its own challenges and the
Keys have the captains who can
adapt to any condition or bite.
Sunday saw the final day of
fishing in the two-day Holiday
Isle Sailfish Tournament, mark-
ing its 23rd year in Islamorada.
The All Lit Up with Capt. James
Barnett was the big winner with
six fish caught and released by,
anglers Douglas and Greg Pietig
of Key Largo, Gina Boilini Pietig
of Bloomington, Minn., and
Mike Duggan of Miami Beach.
Also with a six sailfish were
Kyle Sherman and Debbie Austin
of Fort Lauderdale and Donnie
Green of Tavernier, taking second
place award aboard the Adios
with Capt Vince Austin.
Third place was captured by
Matt McLean and Scott Dunnuck
of Naples, and John Timura of
Islamorada. They landed four
sailfish aboard the Shock & Awe
with Capt. Robert Collins.


With
three sail-
fish caught


of St.
Joseph,
Mich., took
home the
high-point
a n g le r
award.
Cal Sutphin largest tuna
(which was
12 pounds) was caught by Brian
Lindback aboard the Tiki. The
most outstanding catch, an 18.5-
pound dolphin, was caught by
James Allen aboard the Kalex.
The largest kingfish (9.5 pounds)
was caught by Jim Brown aboard
the Sittin' Pretty.
A total of 56 anglers aboard 21
boats entered this year's tourna-
ment. The two-day event brought
79 hook-ups with 52 releases.
Not the hottest of bites, but a nice
way to start a busy 12 days.
To say that we are smack in
the middle of a busy sailfish tour-
nament schedule would be an
understatement.
In less than two weeks, the
Upper Keys see six tournaments
- the just-concluded Holiday
Isle, the Bartender's tournament
(which was Monday), the
Outdoor Channel tournament
(Tuesday and today), Cheeca
Presidential (Jan. 19 and 20), Al


Flutie Over the Hill Rip-Off (Jan.
22) ahd with the Islamorada
Fishing Club .(Jan. 24).
The cool story of the week
from my morning radio show
came Friday on the second and
final day of the Islamorada
Sailfish on Fly tournament.
As I was interviewing mate
Capt. Mike Kozma and just as he
got finished stating that his team
had not even raised a sailfish in
one full day plus the two hours of
fishing currently, his team spots a
sail nailing the live bait teaser. In
other words, after 10 hours of
nothing, the first sail comes along
and the mate is pre-disposed talk-
ing to me on a radio show.
Luckily, Kozma and his team
of Bob Rich and Sandy Moret
took it as a good-luck omen and
immediately called me back hop-
ing to stoke another bite.
And don't forget that
Saturday's Saltwater Sportsman
national seminar series is at Coral
Shores High School in Tavernier.
It's an opportunity to learn from
some of the best captains around,
most of whom have intimate
knowledge of our fishing
grounds. Get more information

Keys Fishing


It's active pretty much wherever you go


But beware
of when the
winds are up
It's just been wild from 2
feet to 200 feet of water, there's
been tons of action in just about
every venue of fishing in the
Keys, and that covers quite a few
options.
Actually, there has been good
activity in even shallower and
deeper water. Weather has been
the determining factor in just
where you would have been able
to fish any particular day.
This is winter fishing in the
Keys. The fronts that roll through
cause winds toTshift day to day,
which inhibits smaller boats in
some areas. It also stirs up the
water and causes a great deal of
fish movement following bait
throughout the region.


i Just this
ol n. past week,
I've heard
of or partic-
ipated in
real good
catches of
sailfish,
kingfish,
tuna, mack-
erel, man-
grove, mut-
ton, lane,
yellowtail,
Dave Navarro trout, red-
fish, porgy,
cobia, a variety of grouper and
even dolphin. Like I said, the
only factor limiting the action
was being able to comfortably get
to them.
Just offshore the reef, sails and
kings have been abundant. Water
200-plus feet deep has produced
quite a few good tunas and a very
surprising number of dolphin for


HOMEOF BIG DIK &xTHE XTENDERxxS
**'# **Ro a &01


this time of year.
Back on the. edge of the reef,
yellowtail and big mutton snap-
per have been doing well with the
dark of the moon. Hanging on
and not contributing to the chum
line has been the biggest problem
on the windy days.
The patch reefs have had an
unusual number of mangrove
snapper for the winter along with
a good variety of grouper and a
few large muttons.
Inside of that, along both sides
as-well as in the middle of Hawk
Chanmiel, big lane, mangrove and
mutton snapper have been giving
anglers a good time, as well as
some very nice dinner fillets.
Mackerel, some cobia and a good
number of red grouper have also
been reported.
Chumming the subtle humps
and bumps has been productive
and much more comfortable with
the northerly winds.
The bridge channels have also
been hot as long as you don't
get caught up fishing the deeper
channels with the winds up.
There, the heavy concentrations
of weeds that have been blowing
through have made keeping bait
under the surface quite difficult.
Just work off the side of where
the noticeable weeds are moving
and you will find that by keeping
bait down, your activity will dras-
tically improve. Silversides have
been the hottest bait here lately,
even more than live shrimp.
Moving into the bay waters,
all I can say is that if you skimp
,on bait, you will not be the most
popular person on the boat
because the fish have been
chomping. *
Inside of 5 miles out, action
has been somewhat limited
unless you find some of that
sought-after tall needlegrass bot-


tom. Beyond 5 miles, where most
of the bottom is good, mangrove
snapper have been scattered
throughout, as have gag and
black grouper.
Eight-plus miles has been
awesome for mackerel and quite
a few cobia. There is still good
snapper there if you can get a bait
down through the mackerel. Also
found in this venue have been
redfish, some very large; trout;
and a wide variety of action fish
such as jacks and others.
The flats have been very good
on some days when the winds
and temperatures allowed. Plenty
of bones have. been around, and
there have been good times with
many other fish in the shallow
waters.
Not to be forgotten have been
the mangrove snapper that have
been quite thick along the grass
flats looking for crustaceans
blown loose of their cover when
the winds are up. This is a good
area to fish for the activity, as
well as having the flat provide a


block to the wind and waves.
You can either set up on
anchor and chum the edges of the
flats or just drift along them if the
wind and current are cooperating.
On the drift, a small jig, an eighth
to a quarter of an ounce tipped
with some shrimp, has been
killer.
All of these areas can be
reached on certain days, depend-
ing on the winds. To learn more
on how to work the Keys waters
in the winds, we're holding a free
fishing seminar from 6 to 8 p.m.
Thursday at our Marine
Educational Center, mile marker
49.5 bayside, to help. We'll cover
bait and tackle-rigging tech-
niques, how to get to certain loca-
tions and which will work on
each particular day to make the
most out of what Mother Nature
gives you.
